All legal notices authorized by law to be published by said city and county will appear ex clusively Ln the Evening Standard - .. , , m PRESIDENT WILSON PROVES MOST CONFUSING President Wilsons first state paper has caused all kinds of comment. The real meaning of the document is so clouded In the languagp of diplomacy B' that no two writers seem to au.r- i In interpreting the same. Henry J Allen of Kansas, who was in Ogden last summer, brings out this point In a letter to the Standard, dated Wash ington. March 18, In which he Bays Diplomatic language can be under j food finally, If It really means anv- I thing. I never expected to under stand just what President Wilson's statement to the so-called Latin -Amencan republics meant, but now 1 know A man who heard it discussed by a cabinet minister has told me. ami I understand It perfect! When I read It carefully yesterday morning I recognized It as an excep tionally able state paper, and shared in the enthusiasm of the newspaper men and pronounced it a determined, well written "ultimatum " I believed 1 shared secretly with them likewise in speculation and un certainty as to what It really meant. Indeed late the night before, when I read It hastily when It came hot off the White House typewriter, I had an Inkling that a great utterance had been made I wsh interested and elated from the first moment, when a well known Cincinnati newspaper man came in and said ''Did you ever read a finer indorse ment of Secretary Knox's dollar di plomacy than that'" T grunted something unintelligible and Invited him to go on and explain In lo me "It means." he said, "that you Pro gressives who have been expecting President WlllBon to change the Taft foreign policies will have to realise that Mr Wilson Is going to stand b $ them " and he went out enthusiasti cally waving the great state paper, and I read his piece the next day, jjk interpreting the first paper of the cew president as an unqualified in dorsement of Taft and Knox. As soon as he left a well known Philadelphia writer came in and said "Well, that puts Mr Knox's dollar diplomacy to sleep, all right, all right." "It certainly seems so," I said brief ly; "bents anything I over read along that line." "It Is great," he yelled, "simply great It b what I ve longed ror rrom the beginning." I got up and went to the telephone and called up a friend who Is close to the throne. T knew he'd know what It meant. 80 I asked him "Read It for yourself, ' said he with asperity "It means Just what it says " I gave a low moan, like some wounded thing, and went to bed, to a restless night in which Mexico, Gua temala, Brazil and all the other Lat in governments scampered up the wallB of the room and dropped huge dictionaries at me from the celling, a night constantly Interrupted bv that trange phenomenon which occurB in the twilight zone of half conscious ness when a man tries to yell In his sleep. The next morning I bought an arm ful of metropolitan papers. The Wash ington papers said ln glaring head lines: "Knox's policy Indorsed." The Baltimore papers said: "New administration announces continuation of Taft policies ln Lat in America." One great Philadelphia paper said "President Wilson establishes new policy for sister republics, no more of Knox's dollar diplomacy." Another Philadelphia paper said "Firm utterance from new execu tive; policy of state department re mains unchanged."

I a spirited but solemn utterance, and j had aroused the diplomatic corps The New York World said it was the ablest state paper of modern times, but did not commit itself as to what It meant. All the papers united in declar ing It to be high class mipsmanlike.

ONCE MORE TO THE DEFENSE OF SUTHERLAND The- Standpal papers of Utah, in at tempting to serve two masters, are m a dreadful plight Senator Smoot voted against the Webb temperance bill and Senator Sutherland did likewise Then when Taft vetoed the bill as passed by sen ate and house, Sutherland voted to piift.iin the president '8 veto, but Smoot recorded his vote on the side of temperance. ' Became Sutherland has been roundly censured for his liquor vote, the Standpat organs have rallied to hiB defense and are devoting pages of (heir snace to explaining how Suther land took upon hims?lf the whole burden of the supreme court of the I'ntted States and declared the mens ure unconstitutional Now if Sutherland is right. Smoot must be wrong But oh. what a laugh there will be on Sutherland and his apologizers when the supreme court Itself final l decides that the lau li constitutional! Sutherland conveys the idea that he is the only constitutional lawyer in congress Senators, by far his su penors in law and in conscientious performance of their duties as law makers, voted for the Webb bill, full I confident the measure would be dc clared good law and would serve a good purpose The truth is that Sutherland used the question of constitutionality as .1 screen behind which to hide in 8erv j ing the whiskv irust V senator so cowardly Is too contempt ibh small in character to be recognized as other than s hired tool. UPS AND DOWNS OF A MINING CAMP. The tag end of the Goldfield excite ment is in sight according to the report of the (kddfield Consolidated Mlnine; companj, the one big property in the camp that held the attention of the entire mining world for a period of two years. This report tells of ore reserves onh eight months ahead Of late the Goldfield Consolidated ha& been unable to keep up Its regular dividends and the indications are that, after this ear. the great mine wlil be doing well If it keeps out of the assessment class. When Goldfield was discovered, the report was sent out that a vein 100 feet wide, traceable a mile and carr -jlng gold values of $100 a ton had been uncovered. Such a fabulously , rich strike promised to produce more I gold than had come from the con glomerate reef on the Rand, and there I was a wild stampede to the desert re. jglou. The discovery proved not to be 100 feet wide or to average $100 ore, but there were surface pockets in the formation which were rich enough to excite the mining crowds and keep up interest until with deeper mining, the great wealth of tho Florence and other properties later merged and known as the Goldfield Consolidated, waa exposed The stock booming period In Gold field's history Is without equal When the excitement was most ln teuso there were 150 brokers and dealers in mining stocks who could have realized from I60VOOO to $3,000, 000 on their holdings When the crash came, following the rllsclosures In connection with the methods of the Sullivan promoting company, and the destruction of San Francisco, the I center of the stock gambling, by earthquake and fire, not more than half a dozen of the brokers escaped bankruptcy. Men who had counted their w-ialth at from half a million to a million or more, found themselves impoverished Wingfleld. Nlxou and one or two others escaped the wreckage by being actual possessors of a controlling Interest in the one big producer of the camp. Goldfield Consolidated, capitalized at $50,000,000, with $35,590,000 in stock- outstanding, has paid less than' $25,000,000 in dividends. It is esti mated that the total capitalization of the mining companies of Goldfield. In the boom davs. was close to a billion dollars. 00 FOREIGN OPINION OF THE AMERICAN GIRL. ' i I The American girl is the subject lot an Interview given to a New York ' patter by Princess lxwensteln I j Worthclm. The princess doe not draw a very flattering picture. She 1 j says: "What a curious product 1 the American girl Her eneigy. which she doe not seem to be able to di rect to one special purpose always is j seeking some other channel of activ ity.
