Ever since this paper has come out in favor of Progressive Re I
publicanism the Salt Lake HeraldRepublican has lost no oppor I
tunity to misrepresent this paper or its publisher I
This morning the Herald announces in big headlines that Mayor
1 Glasmann and the Rev N S Elderkin had a bitter debate iff the
police court THERE IS NOT ONE WORD OF TRUTH to the
statement The alleged bitter debate was between Attorney A G
Horn and Elderkin and no debate not even a bitter word of any
kind passed between Elderkin and the Mayor at the police court
Such statements on the part of the Herald are cowardly i
The Herald dares not challenge the Standard on the issue be
tween Aldrich and Cannon on one side and Roosevelt Dolliver and
LaFollette on the other side Hence the Herald adopts the policy
of the sneak and the coward 4
An importer in the West India islands addresses an American
consul as follows I
At the present moment on account of the high prices of cotton t
goods in the American market I am forced to send samples of their
goods to Manchester England to have them imitated and I am glad
to say it has proved very successful as I have in my stock prints
identical with those I generally get from America and the trade
seems jo accept these goods as if they were American I
The new tariff is now being blamed for the extreme high prices
on cotton goods yet under the old law cotton has been advancing
in price It would seem therefore that other causes must combine
with the tariff in this upward tendency of prices The problem is
here and should be solved in a manner equitable to the buying public
and the manufacturer
The remarkable increase of the population of cities of the third
and fourth classes already reported by the Census Bureau says the
Chronicle reveals the phenomenon of urban growth which was so I
striking a feature of the decade 18901900 was even more pronounced
during the past ten years
Cases in which the growth of cities has exceeded 60 per cent
during the past ten years have been announced and there is reason
to believe that many others will be reported
When the list of cities with a population exceeding 50000 is com
pleted it will be much longer than that of 1900 and it will em
brace the names of growing and prosperous places now unfamiliar
to the mass of the people
About the only drawback that will result from the increase will
be that experienced by the children in the public schools who are
expected to lean by rote the names of American cities no matter
how many of them there may be
But that will not keep some people from fussing It is reason
able to expect that the census figures will have a tendency to renew
the lamentations over the desertion of the land which we hear at
rgularly recurring intervals Urban growth a subject particularly I
congenial to that growing class the members of which think they are I
performing a duty when they are prating about the simple life and II
1the necessity of getting back ttf it if the country is to be saved from
1 going to the bowwows I
The sincerity of such talk may be gauged by the fact that most I
of those who indulge in it would no more think of abandoning the

pavements of the city than they would of emigrating to the cold and
cheerless moon I
Despite their pessimistic warnings the cityward tendency is sure
to increase But that need not alarm us for while the centripetal
movement continues we have assurances of prosperity
There is nothing more certain than that urban growth in all
times and in all lands has marked the periods of advancement
When men cease to build cities retrogression at once begins
Countries that have no cities or whose cities do not grow are low in

Do the business people of Ogden really look after their own in
terest Here comes the information from the fire insurance people
themselves that if 100000 had been spent on the Ogden waterworks
twenty years ago and the money used for the purpose of building a
second conduit from the reservoir to the distributive system and for
additional water that the businessmen of Ogden would have saved au
least 25000 a year or onehalf a million dollars during the last
twenty years on insurance rates and that at the present time if this
100000 is spent in improving the water system of the city as above
stated the saving of fire insurance premiums in Ogden City will be
practically 25000 to 35000 per year Not only that it appears
that for at least ten years past the Board of Fire Underwriters of the
Pacific Coast have each year sent a communication to the city of Og
den requesting that the second pipe line be built from the reservoir
to the distributive system and that the reservoir be Enlarged and
that if that was done a reduction of fire insurance premiums could
be made Yet our businessmen pay these exorbitant insurance rates
year after year without protest Is there any wonder that the pee

One week from Tuesday a bond election will be held for the
purpose of voting 100000 to put in the improvements asked for by
the Board of Fire Underwriters Every business house in the city
will have its insurance premium reduced from 20 per cent to 30 per
cent on the basic rate and yet we doubt if one hundred business
men will go to the polls and vote Tho people practically are unani
mous for this bond election and yet it is doubtful if sufficient peo
ple in favor of the bonding will vote A prominent businessman
yesterday offered to wager 100 that there would not be five hundred
votes polled at the election one week from Tuesday This is simply
deplorable The people ought to turn out and cast their full vote
Either the bond election should carry or it should bo voted down
Let their be an emphatic expression on this matter Let us havd
it understood that the people want or dont want the improvements
to be made on the waterworks Here the city has a real estate as
sociation it has a civic improvement league it has a Chamber of
Commerce it has a retail merchants association it has a jobbers as
sociation and it has the Weber club Yet not one of these organiza
tions has found this bond proposition of sufficient importance to
either say they are opposed to it or they are in favor of it In speak
ing to the president of one of these associations the other day he
said II Why everybody favors the bonds whats the use That
is just what will defeat the dionds Nobody will vote believing the
other fellow will vote The city of Ogden cannot spend any money
to get the voters out and one or more of these organizations should
see to it that the people vote on this question This paper would like
to see the bonds carry because it means so much for Ogden but we
will be satisfied if the people will only voto Wo are willing to Sub
mit to a majority of the people voting on this question but we do
not want the election day to close Tuesday evening September 6th
with no votes in the ballot box
