We hear so much of Calitornia, its

he Is content to remain In Utah, aft-i

while he was away But he makes
thil observation.
'The biggest asset of California Is
the 'hot air' of her sons. From the
time one enters California until he
leaves he hears nothing but songo
of praise for California. We hear of
her nuts and her oranges at all

treasures In our hills and fertile fields

everything but boosting AH we need

There Is a campaign on to exoner
ate Ambassador Wilson from any
wrongs committed during the period
of assassination In the City of Mex-
ico which attended the overthrow of
the Madero administration. There J
is a hint conveyed that our ambassa- '
I dor has been friendly to the old Diaz
; regime and had labored In the hope
j of restoring Porfirlo Diaz to the pres. j
Idency. Diaz was known to favor the
' smelter trust and other large Amer
ican Interests In Mexico, and this In
fluence Is supposed to have been back
' of the ambassador in his opposition
to Madero.
The New York World publishes spe-
Iflc charges, which, corroborated by
I the records In the state department at
Washington, are as follows.
That Ambassador Wilson threw the
j whole influence of the American gov
ernment into the balance against Ma
' dero.
That he gave encouragement and
Indirect aid to the traitorous Mexi
j can generals ro openly as to consti
tute the most pernicious form of dip
lomatic meddling.
That he used other foreign diplo
mats as his facile instruments In at
tempting to coerce Madero to re
sign. That he either possessed advance
Information of the plot of Huerta and
Blanquet to turn traitors to Madero,
or displayed amazing prescience In his
official diBpatches predicting Made
ro s downfall the night before It oc
curred. That Huerta was In, frequent con
ference with the American ambassa
dor before the palace coup d'etat
Thai news of the success of the
I blow was conveyed by the ambassa
dor's messenger to Felix Diaz, with
the suggestion that Huerta and Diaz'
should como to terms
That Diaz distrustful of Huerta.
Insisted upon an American escort and
protection of the American flag, on
his trip to confer with Huerta in the
That Ambassador Wilson, brusque,
arrogant and unsympathetic with the
Mexicans, was for months openly hos
tile to Madero and an avowed partisan
of Felix Diaz
That without the encouragement
and approval of the American nm-i
bassador, Huerta neer would have
turned traitor, and that Madero never
would have been defeated without out
side Interference
That Ambassador Wilson's prompt
recommendation that the United
States recognize the nen government
was precipitate and undignified.
That his haste to seal with bis ap
proval the weird official explanations
of the execution of the Maderos and
Pino Suarez has further prejudiced
Mexicans against Americans.
A Washington dispatch Is to the ef
fect that officers of the army have
held the opinion that Ambassador
Wilson was responsible for the assas
sination of Madero.
With Wilson's record so clouded, the
administration should recall him
That would be one method of re
buking those who plotted the assassinations.
This mornini the Lynch-Cannon
, Engineering company of Salt Lake
'bvan repair work on the Davis &
Weber Counties canal at the head of!
the penstock of the Riverdale power
plant and It is said that water from I
the canal will be turned on the
turbine wheels of the power plaut,
April 15.
The concrete canal was washed
away a short time aeo for a distance
of about 17 feet, the Overflow of wa-
tr having been caused by an accum-j
iiiatlon of slush ice at the head of
the penstocks A large flow of water'
had been turned into the canal for the
purpose of testing the power plant:
machinery when a sudden freezing j
followed by a thaw caused an Ice
blockade In the channel and threw ,
nine miles of water, ix feet deep and !
twenty feet wide, o'ver the bank, car
i Cr.g with it the concrete structure
The water rushed out In a verita
ble torrent and surrounded the River
dale power plant to a depth of about '
four feet. Entrenches to the plant
were barricaded against the water to
protect the machinery, and it was,
with difficulty thai the water was
turned away from the great wheels
and dynamoes. Deep gulches were j
cir through the farm district between
the canal and the river and roads j
were washed out The damape was
considerable, not only to the canal,
but to the new electric power com-i
pany, the recent purchasers of the!
Riverdale power plant
In the present rebuilding of the
canal, It is said by officers ol the
company, that not onlv will the big
water channel be re-concreted and
re-enforced with steel, hut a spill
be constructed to protect the
canal The spillway will be made of j
concrete aud it will parallel the pow
er plant penstocks to a point where
It can be turned into the tailrace

"I spent all morning going over the

that cuts must be made somewhere j

Summary of the American Telephone and Telegraph Co.'s Annual Report I
The rep(n issued by the American Telephone and
Telegraph Company for the year ending December :il 1912,
shows iliat the telephone has becomj in the I nit.-rl States,
to n greater extent than anywhere ol.se in the world, a
household necessity There are now 70,000 towns, cities an. I
hamletfl from winch telephone messages may hr sent. This
is 5,000 more than the number of postoffices in the United
St,k 10,000 more than 1 1 j - number of railroad stations
and nearl; three times the number of regular telegraph of
fices. There are altogether 7,456,074 telephone stations in
the B II System, hitfh is an increase over last year of 823,
149 i.ii!nns Tin; compares with an increase during tho
pi ei ions v ear of 74! 906 stations.
Including the traffic over the Long-distance lines, but not
including the connecting companies, the daily average of
tll "onnections in 1012 was about 738,000, and of exchange
connections about 25,572,000 Tins compares with i4.",Oon
and 23,484,000 in 1911. Speaking broadly ih is means that
the dailj average of telephone conversations last year
reached 26,310000, or at the rate of about 8,472,000,000 for
tl)'' year, as against 24129,000 in Lflll when the rate was
7.770.0(io,DOi) a year.
Theodore N. Vail, president of the company gives some
highly interesting statistics comparing the telephone traffic
in the United States ajkI Europe with the United States and
Europe with the operations of the mail and telegraph Ber
irices. Taking the last available figures those for the year
1911- the records maj be thus summarized:
Europe. Lniled States
Number Per Ceni Number Per Cent
Type of Message During of Total During of Total
1911. Europe 1911 U. S
First-Class mail matteiTh.oiio ijo'.'.ihmi 72 2 9, 700,000. 0" 4" 1

Total 22.870.000 000 100 0 24,208.000,000 100.0
These figures show that while Europe has three and i
half times the telegraph traffic of tin" I'nited States and
nearly twice the first class mail traffic, it has onlj two
fifths of the telephone traffic, owing to the greater effiei
etn v and distribution of the telephone in this country.
The Hell System shqwed a gross revenue not including
thai of the cdnnected independent lutes Of $199,200,000.
Thi, was a gam of $20,000 noo over the previous year A
very careful appraisal conducted by the engineers of the
physical property of tin- Bell System as of August 1st, last,
showed that while the book cost was $736,000,000 tin Bt
of reproduction at that date would have been $797,000,000.
hi other words, the eompain was carrying the property on
its books at "f'ul .ioo oiio below its actual physical value al
tin time of its appraisal In this appraisal there were m
cluded do intangible assets whatever, such .is good will,

plant, including tin necessary real estate During the five
: ear period between 1907 and 1912 the assets of the Bell
Companies have increased $311,000,000 while the capital
obligations and payables outstanding have increased onlv
a little over $199,000,000 The surplus and reserve have in
creased from $61,300,000 to $164,200,000 or nearh $103,

its outstanding pital stock was $334,805,700, and bonds
$l5o02.00o. For the capital stock outstanding th. re has
been paid into the company's treasury $356,732,218, or
nearly $22,000,000 more than the par value of the sto.-k.

In thirty-three different states ther,- are public service

service. This supervision is entirely distinct from tho su

General Wickersham to the chairman of ihe Interstate
Commerce Commission al Washington touching the activi
tics of the company and also the order made b the Inter- I
