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

statement to the so-called Latin -Amencan
republics meant, but now 1
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
"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 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."

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

The tag end of the Goldfield excite

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

When Goldfield was discovered, the
report was sent out that a vein 100
feet wide, traceable a mile and carr -jlng

100 feet wide or to average $100 ore,
but there were surface pockets in

other properties later merged and

The stock booming period In Gold

In connection with the methods of the
Sullivan promoting company, and the
destruction of San Francisco, the I

half a dozen of the brokers escaped
