i j Ogden poultrymeu recently organ
ized an association for the purpose
of conducting chicken shows, the first
one being scheduled for January 22,
2,1 and 24. The officers of the -association
are putting in full time Just now
to prepare for tho cvont.
: The president of tho associatlonis
W. W. 'Browning and the .seoretary
w u. jDrHinwen, uuui cnicKen ran-
cicrs. President Bi owning has gone
" to Salt Lake to request poultrymen
of that city to JoinOgden in the fine
exhibition proposed.
President Browning states that
: there are many fine chickens in Og-
; den and surrounding territory, but
that they are little thought of be
cause there has been no concerted
movement to place them before the
public. If the first show of the as
! socfatlon Is a success, there will fol-
. low an annual exhibition.
All birds are eligible for entry in
the contest, the exact details of which
have not-yet been worked out. Tho
i time for entrance closes January 20.
r. The state law provides that chll-
, dien under 12 jears of age shall not
attempt any kind of labor outBide the
school work during the school year
a and that no child shall at any time do
uork that will call him from the
studies of the school. It is also pro
vided that unless a pupil completes
the eighth grade work prior to the
time he reaches 1C years of age he
m at remain In the school work up to
that lime.
iuese two provisions, says the su-
tperlntendent of the Ogden schools, are
causing some students to make mlsr'
representations regarding their agos
and some parents are upholding them
in It It la a question with the su
perintendent whether some parents
are not the instigators of the false
hood Every precaution Is being tak-
and spare the pupils unnecessary no
toriety in the matter.
It happens, says Mr. Mills, that
there is a school record of the ages
of boys and girls that has been kept
since they entered the public schools
and it Is'a record easily referred to.
But, notwithstanding that, recently
hoys under 12 years of age have ap
plied for permits to sell papers, pro
testing strenfously that they are old
er. When told of their ages as shown
by the school record, indicating them
to be under 12 years of age, they say: J
"Well, pa says I am 12."
, The same thing has occurred with
' hoys who desire to get away from the
school and whose parents are willing
that they should. They frequently
paBs from 14 to 10 in ono year and
contend that their ages yere improp
erly given In the beginning.
Superintendent Mills says that tho
schoolmen will not go back of the
school record and that parents and
, pupils must abide by it
no .

Tho case of G. T. Ahord, one'jjf
tho strikers charged with disturbing
the peace on the morning of January
5, came up in police court this morn
ing after several postponements din
ing the past two weeks.
The case, as presented for the city,
was heard this morning and, after
thr losfimonv was In tho.aitnmo,. ...
-- h.oh",i iuv hi, i.iu;.tiiuri)uy lur
tho defenso made a motion for a dis
missal of the case, claiming that no
disturbance of the peace had been
shown This, however, was denied b
the court and on adjournment taken
until 3 o'clock this afternoon
The first witness to take the stand
was N. D. McMillan, a special officer
employed at tho Btockade by the rail
roads. McMillan testified that early
on the morning of January 5 he no
ticed a crowd of men onthe corner
of Wall avenue and Twenty-second
street and heard loud talking, the
import of which ho was unable to de
termine. He noticed George S. Wag
ner, the plaintiff In the case, as the
cenlor of what seemed to be a dis
turbance of some sort and hurried
out from his place near the gate of
thc stockade, arriving In time to hear
somoone call Wagner a "dirty cur."
Ho claims to Identify Alvord as the
man, from his clothes and a peculiar
shaped cap he was wearing.
Wagner took the stand and told his
story of the affair. He claims to
have been threatened with a beating
several days before and In conse
quence had been sworn in as a spe
cial officer In order that he might
carry a gun and have legal authority.
Wagner testified that he had been
a resident of Ogden, off and on, for
nearly seven years and returned to
Ogden tho last time about a month
ago, when he went to work as a ma
chinist at the local shons On the
morning of January 5 he was on his
way to work when, on reaching the
corner of Wall avenue and Twent
second street, ho was accosted by
several men standing on the corner
as "scab" and one of the men gave
three whistles, at which men ap
proached, he claims, from every di
rection. Fearing bodily injury, Wag
ner says he drew his gun and told
the men to stand back, which, he says
thej' did. and, after passing through
tho crowd one of them, whom he iden
tifies as Alvord, ran after him, call
ing him a "dirty cur" At this point
the special officer ai rived and Al
vord was arrested.
hi the cross-examination the attor
ney for tho defense endeavored to
bring out the fact that there had been
bad feeling between Wagner and Al
vord for some time, hut Wagner de
nied this, although he admitted hav
ing some trouble several years ago
In which Alvord was concerned.
Tho attorney for the defenso said
ho had some seven or eight witnesses
who were to testify, and this after
noon, when the case is continued,
the other side will bo heard.

In Judge N. J. Harris' division of
the district court this morning the
t-rlal of tho Lochhead vs. Jensen dam
age case was resumed, this being the
third day of the trial. Most of the
first day was taken up In securing a
Jury and much time was exhausted in
taking the testimony of Manager San
derson of the Hemenway & Moser Ci
gar company, who was in the auto
mobile when H turned turtle on the
Pleasant View turnpike.
Mrs. Violet Fife, a resident of
Pleasant View, testified to giving aid
to the Injured and related the sad
story of administering to Mr. Loch
head, in whom there was barely a
spark of life when he was taken from
under thc automobile. She did not
cee tho accident and knew nothing
of the facts connected with the af
fair. J. M. Bailey and H. J. Craven tes
tified to the -general contour of the
turnpike, and explained the rough con
dition of the road at the time of the
accident. At the point of the acci
dent, the road was quite uneven on
the south sido end there was a small
gutter at the outer edge of the road
grade into which the machine ran.
Besslo Cragan and Clara Parker
were called to the witness stand this
morning and stated that they drove a
horse and buggj from Pleasant View
to the North Ogden btore the afternoon
of the accident, meeting an automo
bile on the way. Neither of tho girls
could Identify the car, but they stat
ed that they saw none other than
tho one ditched nqar Colfax ' Lane
that afternoon. They met a large au
tomobile containing three men near
the point of the accident going at a
orrlflc rate of speed and zig-zagglng
on the turnpike. The young ladles
stated that they turned their horse
from tle pike to give the automobile
full sway.
Jt required about an hour for them
to drive to the North Ogden store and
back to tho place where they saw the
machine travollng toward the Hot
Springs. The machine wrecked In
the roadway was similar, In their
judgment, to the one they saw travel
ing rapidly.. Miss Cragun stated that
she had seen many autos driven on
tho Pleasant View turnpike, some at
a rapid rate of speed, but that the
machlno she and Miss Parker saw
September 0. 1910, was golng faster
than any she had seen before.
Mrs J. M. Bailey of Pleasant View
testified that she saw n machine pass
hor place one September afternoon
and shortly after learned that an ac
cident had" occurred near tho Colfax
Lnne. Tho automobile she saw was
running rapidly, she said, but she
did not know to whom It belonged.
She was sitting on the front porch of
her homo and saw the machine as it
sped along tho highway, getting an
occasional glimpse of It between the
tall poplar trees.

Have wo a yellow press In England?
I think we undoubtedly have, hut In
a different and less concentrated, and
therefore less harmful form If you
wqre to take a paper llko Lloyd's
News or The People and mix It up
with the Police Gazette and Comic
Cuts and All Slopor and Illustrated
Bits and the Tatlor or whatever oth
er of our wcokly papers In the chosen
haunt and promenade of our actresses
and chorus girls and add a dash of
tho Dally Mall in ono of Its more
ebullient moods, and publish the re
sultant medley overy day, and es
pecially on Sunday, you would got
something that tamoly and distantly
resembled the ordinary "yellow"
journal of tho United Statos. The
British "yellowness" is diffused
among a multitude of little sheets,
mostly weeklies, that the ordinary
man ccr sees, The American "yel
lowness" Is brought together under
a single cover and exploded upon
tho city in a way there Is no escaping
Still, the diseuse is with us, but in a
mild form and isolated casce There
are any number of penny weeklies
In England that hand out to their
readers every week a serial story
about life in the "highest circlos," a
short story packed with "heart in
terest," articles on tho removal of
grease spots and tko best method of
coping with the cold mutton, anec
dotes of royalty, photographs of peer
esses, hints on dross, chats about ,
baby and sweet peas and preraaturo

sanctum, a slab of brown paper as
a pnttern for tasty tunic advice on
matters of the heart by Dr. Cupid,

petitions (which are smeared over
with grcHse of piety In the case of
the American 'yellows." So I do not
think that v.e religious papers), a

pound a week for life or a cottage
and a wife, whichever you please, if
you guess thc number of woids in
Mr. Lloyd-George's next speech, 'and
a paper cooking-bag. I do not know
whether these productions ought to be
called "yellow," but I am very sure
that for sbeor bralnlessness, snob
bishness and stifling inanity they are ,
as bad as the worst of the American
"yellows." So I do not think thatt wo
English should give ourselves too
many airs. Sidney Brooks in Har
per's Weekly.
I do not know just why the Ameri
can prices should prevail so In Ber
muda. It costs no more than ever to
raise things there, and tho Bermudans,
who are mostly peopie of compara
tively small incomes, must suffer from
the rise in the cost of living more
than the American visitors or sojourn
ers. Even In tho shops, where they
used to pay English prices for Eng
lish goods, they now pay American
prices, quite as if they had an Am
erican tariff to enable the local manu
facturers to make fortunes and go
abroad and marry their daughters to
noblemen. Otherwise I do not know
that our nation does the Bermudans
much harm. We swarm upon them by
tho thousand, three times a week,
when the New York steamers come,
in a lump, as It were, on three suc
cessive days, instead of spreading
themselves over the seven days; and
we romp up and down their quiet
streets, to the music of our cat-bird
twang. At these times we have rath
er a wild look, and talk loudly, and
laugh more than wo need, If we are
women: but that is because the beau
ty and tho strangeness of the placo
have gone to our heads, sometimes,
perhaps not too strong at home. If
wo aro men, we sound a different nas
al, a drv. sarcastic note, and wear an
ironic smile with the new straw hats
we have bought. We are mostly, I
thing, from familiar country places,
or Inland cities, and have not been
abroad before. We mean nothing
wrong, and many of us are charmingly
kind and good, and even Intelligent.
But tho whole business Is a delight
ful joke for us, whether we stroll up
and down the clean, white streets be
tween the clean, white houses, or
drive lavishly, out over the land fn
the pleasant victories, and try too aud
ibly to extract misinformation from
the obliging colored drivers. If we
go home tho next day, we do not
quiet down, but if we stay a week wo
become of an almost Bermudan calm.

That Boston is New York's most
formidable rival for foreign trade wad
the comforting message of Calvin
Tomklns, commissioner of docks and
Ferries, in New York, to the Boston
Chamber of Commerce. His specialty
being docks, ho looks at the question
from thc materialistic viewpoint of fa
cilities offered He places Boston
ahead of all other cities in tho fight,
he told the Chamber of Commerce,
Monday night.
"Simply because you are going to
run trains from various parts of the
country to the sides of tho great oco.ui
steamships, whero passengers can em
bark without the slightest delay, and
with no Inconvenience You have ac
complished wonders in the way or
docks and other timo-saving inno
vations which has set New York seri
ously thinking. Boston has the port
right here on the ocean. Boston has
the business. Boston has the rail
road facilities to handle thc in
creased volume of business that is
sure to come to this port, and that
cannot be said of New London,, Mon
tauk Point or Jamaica bay. New
London and Montauk Point may fig
ure in thc passenger travel por
tion of the business In tho future, as
Southhampton, England, has done In
recent years, but these ports aro

compared with such established ports 11
as Boston and Now York." fl
Competition, of course, is mever a Stii
matter of facilities alone. The forces fl '
that direct the course of traffre, like .f H
tbo forces that bring a great popula- l
tlon logothor In one city, arc compli- I f f
cated in the extreme, and it is easier I I
to analyze them after the event than ' 1
to predict the course they will take. I (

supremacy hut it was by no means f
so obvious when the nation was 4 II '
young, and when Philadelphia and II ;
Boston were greater cities. -)
Yet strategic position is not every- HI
thing, even In tho matter of terminals. U
London and Liverpool hold their own Wl '
despite experiments at short cuts. Mr. Jf
Tomklns Is probably right In saying 5 I
that neither Boston nor New York J lil f
need worry just yet over the rivalry KJ f
of Montauk Point or the newer com- jil
petitor for the big liners, New Lon- 1
don. The status quo counts for much, -1' i
and a trifling saving of tlmo or coal m
by sea counts for little against a well- 'm
worked-out co-ordination of land 'i
transjxjrtatlon. Lines of communlca- iH I
tion have never In the past run on Sir'
mathematical lines, and they are not .?
likely to run so there aro too many It
factors Involved. Tow York's danger 1 ' . ,
of losing the great steamship ter- P '
mlnals is not serious, and oven if she M
did, she would not he appreciably ft
hurt Paris and Berlin flourish with- I
out being terminals at all. As for IP
Boston, It Is only at a banquet that one 8 ' 1 1
would speak of her as a rival to New I ' "t
York, but her outlook for sea trado .
has not been better since the great
days of tho clippers. Tho vigorous f
and enlightened policy In regard to .?
docks, to which Mr. Tomklns alluded, A
Is already bearing fruit, and "will still j Ul
further strengthen tho position of the ' I jl
port when the plans are fullj carried j M
