I MINIMUM WAGE FOR WOMEN OF UTAH The most important piece of legls fation of the last Resion of the 1'tah -lature, from a woman's stand- j point is the minimum wage bill which WM signed by the governor on Mon day. The new law compels employer "f female workers to pay not less than $i L'"i to women and T.j cents a day to giris. This new law will serve a good purpose in forcing a minimum wage at least approximating the COSl of living No employer of labor can be Injured because the law applies to, all alike and competition must lie bated on this minimum standard of wages Heretofore those who could Obtain women at 1ps than $1 a da and had no sympatln for their em-j ployes. paid no morr than was nec essary in procuring women workers I The employer, who desired to pay higher wages was compelled lo meet this competition and, therefore, was forced to the low scale of compensa tion. Now all this will be chanced and the law shall dictate a wage scale below which the meanest employer dare not go At first this law ma work a hard afcip on the employers of female labor In some lines of business but event- j ua!I, as the consumers arc made to bear their Just proportion of the in- j creased cost of dolnc business, no j Injustice will be inflicted. Ir t oo SOLVING THE CAUSE OF INFANTILE PARALYSIS. Infantile paraleis has been an In-, sidious disease destroying the lives of babies, which the doctors have been wholly Incapable of combatting But now Dr. Simon Flexner. direc tor of Rockefeller Institute ol re search, offers hope that noon a 6e- rum is to be obtained that will make' ! the disease yield to treatment as did diphtheria after the Klcbu-Loffler ba cillus had been Isolated and a serum obtained from an Inoculated horsr A day last week a baby in Hunts ville died from Infantile paralysis and several deaths have been report ed of late from other parts of Utah Many children aifllcted become help less invalids if they survive the at tack. The dispatches tell us thai the ;m nouncement of Dr. Flexner 6 discov ery has aroused the keenest interest among scientists and physicians, em inent in their profession, who regard' H as one of the most important dis coveries of recent years Dr. Flexner said that In the cul'i vation of the organism the use of a medium freed from oxygen had been found necessary, and that because it could grow only In Hie absence of oxygen It would never be found in' blood or In any cavity containing, oxygen.

WH MORALS OF JAPAN AS SEEN BY OGDENITES "Ren" Hadley and Dr. H B. Forbes of Ogden have been touring Japan in their trip around the world vritir,: from Tokio. Mr Hadley sends tb Standard his impressions of Japan and the Japanese. His letters will be found to be thor oughly Interesting as offerln.tr side lights on Japanese life, which are not presented in the books on Japan Our Ogden travelers have met with a few surprises. F.jr instance. M j Hadley has discovered that in parts of Japan there is mixed bathing He does not sa that on hearing of t h i j disregard of the conventionalities B he lias known ibrm. he hastened to the scene or started on any very close Investigation, yet he assures us thai In the smaller cities and towns men and women bathe together and regard the practice as quite proper Maids at the hotels intrude on the . bathers and the intrusion Is not con- 1 sidered an immodest act. Here v, e have the Japanese and the American idea of sex relation con trasted The Japanese disregard of our moral code is shocking to Ameri cans traveling in Japan and yet the j Japanese girls neither offend in 'he e;. es of their own people nor do their conscience injury, because Japan. moral ethics are not on the same high plane as our own. uu SUDDEN CONVERSION OF A SALT LAKE PAPER. 7 he Salt Lake Tribune does not j think well of the Herald-Republican's I siicden conversion to B good opinion of Woodrow Wilson and in the fol lowing editorial gives expression to; Mime ,- rho;ee Ihoughls on what It, calls The Parasite's Sneak." The desperate effort of the Smoot : organ to strike up a flirtation with j the Wilson administration is attract-I Ing some mildly amused attention! from innocent bstanders. Every da ! that Journalistic coquette, smiling and I r.mirklng through her coarse smudge ; Ol rouge, waves her glove-concealed dirty paws Washinetonward and blows cold storage kisses frantically to the newly risen sun People who recall the libels circu lated about Woodrow Wilson last fall, the slanders and insinuations ol the red-line gossip which were disputed bj .ill concerned and repudiated In every honest newspaper in the coun try, are wondering now f thai were not some sort of political badger game" framed up by the federal off i -Ciall who control and operate the or gan of the senior senator Since the doctor' whs elected president of these I'niied States, in bpiie ol his leputed aversion to edu cation of the masses and notwith standing I'tah s adverse vote these federal hevers of graft and drawers of salaries are more concerned about thfir tenure ol oifice than thev are about the Republican party. Taft is forgotten Wilson is lorglven o one Is really hated save the men who want decent politics and the real pub lic service ol honesty and good faith in this boss-ridden Republican state Am! so it is that everj mornlng; as the firs( rosj streamers of the com iug dawn strike upon the glistening snow w hite pinnacles of the Wasatch and the Oquirrh ranges, the turbaned devotees of self turn from the public crib, salaam and cry: "Woodrow is great' we hope he will be good " There are thos?. however, who would rather take chances with the organ's unreasoning hatred than with Its unnatural and deeph nauseating affection. President Wilson has doubtless read about "Greeks bearing giftf." He would do well to beware of federal bunch officials throwing kiss es for Hopes' rC NEW PEAR TREE IMPORTED FROM MEXICO. A Mexican pear that will withstand heavy frosts has been planted near Los Angeles.
