One of tho most gratifying features
of tho report submitted to congress
by the Interstate Commerce commli
Blon is the announcement that In the
railway accidents In 1908 Is shown a
remarkable falling off of casualties
the death list having been decreased
from 110 in 1907 to 166 In 1908 Tha
number of employes of roads killed
In coupling accidents shows a reduc
tion of 20 per cent
There was a time not long ago
when the yearly railway death list I
assumed the proportions of casualty
reports from a battlefield
Attention Is called to the necessity
of legislation authorizing an Investi
gation under direction of the com
mission of train accidents for tho
purpose of obtaining light on the
question of preventive measures for
the future By the terms of an act
approved May 30 1908 it is made un
lawful for any common carrier en
gaged In interstate or foreign com
merce by railroad to use any locomo
tive in moving interstate or
foreign traffic that Is not
equipped with an ash pan
which can be dumped emptied and
cleaned without tho necessity of any
employe going under such locomotive
on and after the 1st day of January
1910 and the commission is charged
with tho dut of
duty enforcing the
visions of this act Numerous
o Inventions calculated to solve the
difficulty Involved In obtaining an ef
ficient device applicable to all types
of locomotives have been presented to
the commission and have been refer
red to Its block sl
signal and train
trol board for
examination and report
The Interstate Commerce Commls
lIon In Its annual report notes that
the condition of safety appliances Is
steadily Improving with the possible
exception of power brakes The solo
requirement of the present law In re
gard to power brakes IB that no train
subject to tho present act shall contain
less than 75 per cent of cars equipped I
with power brakes In operative condi
tion Cars not exceeding 25 per cent
of tho total in the train may have their
brake equipment cut out of the con
nection and no liability ensues to the
carrier If tfco
o remaining brakes
sufficient to control the speed of the
train There is an Imperative need for
regulation governing cars that are
equipped with both
hand and power
brakes operating in opposition to each
other Any action of congress looking
to this end will bo of great and lasting
value In promoting the safety of lives
limbs and property
The leading court decisions of the
year bearing upon the safetyappliance
law are discussed at length
and the
conclusion Is drawn that the
law Is so
well established that it Is confidently
believed that It will result at no dis
tent < loto In carrying out to the fullest
extent the vlown of congress In Its
enactment Each decision has tended
the moro ctrongly to
fortify the com
pr t
t mission J in Its efforts for thn > enforce
ment this law
The disregard of the demands for
Is not chargeable to
safety appliances
western railroads Tho Union Pacific
and Southern Pacific were among the
first railroads In the United States to
equip their cars with airbakes
This failure to observe ordinary
precautions in protecting their own
and safeguarding the llvos of
their employes is a severe reflection
which havo
on the big corporations
neglected this imperative duty and
gocsfnr to prove that there must bo
government regulation even to Ute ex
tent of forcing big railroads to prop
erly advance their own bost inter
A circular has been received at this
office which is a defense of the big
corporations of the country the lrin
cipnl argument being an attempt tr
prove that stockholders number
In the aggregate hundreds of thous
ands and hence the interests the
corporations are those of the people
and the powerful companies cannot
be injured without inflicting an Injury
upon tho American people
There Is nothing convincing in this
array of figures The United States
Steel Corporation may have 100000
stockholders the Pennsylvania mil
road an equal number the Hill road
40000 and so on through tho list but
to add these figures and offer the
total as evidence of that number of
stockholders Is misleading There
ma be not more than 100000 stock
holders in all the companies for tho
holders of stock in one company may
he holders of stock in all companies
This line of argument In behalf
of the big companies will fall flat A
better defense would be proof that
the Interests of the corporations anI
the people of the country havo become
Interrelated by reason of the em
ployment the corporations afford thaI
unreasonable demands on corporations
must result alike in Injury to the big
concerns and tho people I
A Chicago city magistrate has toen

Uncle Joe Cannon is no little dis
turbed by the evidences of popular
disapproval with his autocratic rulo
of the house of representatives has
elicited in the last year and at a re
cent banquet In Philadelphia he took
occasion In his customary pictur
esque way to make apology in this
In the chapter of accidents I be
came speaker of the house When the
minority undertook to control the
majority they were met with a re
fusal from tho majority and the
speaker The speaker would have
been like a cat in hell without claws
if he had not fought against such
Rules were formulated for the gov
ernment of the house Those rules
were right and proper Under them
the house wrote wise and proper leg
islative measures upon the statute
There were wild howls from
tially selfish newspapers and
zines because tho czar did not re
move 16 per cent ad valorem duty
on print paper and wood pulp They
said they wanted It removed because
the cost of print paper and wood
pulp had Increased 50 per cent but
they could not show that tho Increase
was due to the duty and the speaker
refused to allow the duty to be re
moved I
They were ashamed Mr Cannon
said turning to Vice PresidentElect
James Sherman who was a guest
with him at the function to explain
that this was the real reason for
tholr pounding during your cam
paign and mine
The newspapers says the Call did
not want that kind of a cat for a
speaker but they did want a man
who would not stand In the path
of progress as an obstructionist Mr
Cannons attribution of selfish mo
tives to newspapers in relation to tho
duty on wood pulp Is nonsense and
if it were true would affect not at all
tho force of tho argument made
against the speaker lo complete
his apology Uncle Joe should insist
that the whole Methodist church has
a selfish interest In wood pulp That
church denounced him vigorously
during the campaign
The new knowledge of disease and
diseasebrooding germs has corrected
the old ideas of how disease is com
municated As tho Denver Post says
our grandmothers used to tell us that
the dycstuffs In stockings were pois
onous and that serious consequences
sucllns blood poison might result
from such a source
Doubtless many of the pigments and
chemicals used In making such dyes
would be poisonous if swallowed but
that blood poisoning could bo causod
by them is absurd
Blood poisoning Is always produced
by infecting organisms and almost
without exception the skin must be
roken or abraded In order to make
It possible for such organisms to gain
entrance to the body and cause trouble
The unbroken skin with its protect
ing cent of scarfskin tho epidermis or
cuticle is impervious to nearly all of
the Infecting organisms For example
the virus with which vaccination is
done may be smeared over the sur
face of the unbroken scarfskin with
impunity but let this protecting coat
of mall bo scraped off or scarified and
the virus then applied and if the In
dividual Is susceptible ho will soon
develop the characteristic local and
general manifestations of vaccinia
which make him resistant to the dis
ease smallpox
If other specific organisms are so
introduced they may soon cause the
manifestations of the particular dis
ease from which they had their origin
and so serious disease and death mar
I supervene I
Figs do not grow on thistles nor do I
any of these specific diseases origi
nate except from like parent body
Scarlet fever diphtheria pneumonia
Influenza tuberculosis syphilis ery
sipelas typhoid fever blood poisoning
etc always grow and spread through
bacteria which have developed from
like growths in another organic body
The bacteria which produce Infec
tions and blood poisoning find their
way into our bodies most often
through accidental breaks or punctures
in the scarfskin such as outs or hang
nails upon the hands or chapped rub
bed or cut places upon the feet
Shoes and stockings confine the heat
and moisture of the foot in such a way
as to produce an almost ideal incuba
tor for such organisms and it is a fact
that tho shoes wo wear every day har
bor and propagate millions of them
We are made safe from this hot bed of
Infectious bacteria only because of the
unbroken cuticle which is so resistant
to them
CutS and abrasions on the feet
should bo treated with especial care
and every precaution should bo used
to cleanse them perfectly and keep
them from contnct with soiled socks
or shoes which reek with germs of a
dangerous kind
Clean sterile protecting dressings
on such cleansed wounds will save
many serious oven fatal Infections
and grandmothers myth of the
poisonous dyestuffs in stockings will
be relegated to the realm of romance
The Atlanta Constitution presents a
Southern view of Theodore Roosevelt
which is complimentary The Consti
tution is one of tao great papers of
the South It says
The election of Mr Taft and the
absorbing Intorest in his prospective
national policies has somewhat mini
mized In the public eye the present
occupant of tho White House who e
retirement therefrom is but two
months off
The critics of Mr Roosevelt and
they are numerous and persistent
have seized eagerly upon this fact
which as history shows Is but a na
tural and logical condition and are
delighting in the opportunity which It
affords them to label the retiring pres
ident already a back number
But the truth 18 if one stops to
consider It Mr Roosevelt will prob
ably be much less of a back number
than any president who has ever left
the White House to return to private
The nation is naturally interested
in what Is going to happen to it and
therefore quite logically In too man
who Is going to make things happen
Mr Roosevelt is not at present viewed
as a factor in those important future
But to presume that he will not b
an Important part and parcel of the fu
ture of the United States argues Ig
norance of conditions and denies the
force of human will and energy
Mr Roosevelt leaves tho White
House comparatively a young man he
is yet In his early fifties
Thoro has never been a president
with a stronger personal and national
following than that which Mr Roose
velt possessed and still possesses
There has perhaps never been a
president with moro native vigor of
mind and body whether or not others
may bo classed higher in executive
Despite tho enemies he has mado
and they arc as numerous as they are
in many Instances bitter and unre
lenting this condition and these per
I sonal qualities make bfmt man still
powerfully to be reckoned with
In some respects the enemies no
has made arc an Index of his strength
Mr Roosevelt will leave tho White
Houso scarcely less nationally strong
than while its occupant Ho will be
anything but a back number He will
continue W bo a revised edition up to

Iho merry war between tho pres
ident and congress on tho subject of
the secret service has come to close
quarters The previous exchanges
had been chiefly firing In the air but
to close
now hostilities have come
quarters If tho senate and the house
desire particulars of secret service
activities affecting some of their
members they are in tho way to get
them and it may be that in short
they will be hollering for help to let
go of that bears tall
In fact the president has supplied
to Senator Halo certain detailed speci
fications of secret service work af
fecting members of congress Mr
Hale is carefully sitting on those
specifications for the present but has
suffered a small matter to leak out
that concerns Senator Tlllman This
Is not particularly Important and
probably was elected by Senator
Hale as matter for safe publicity
The other specifications are for the
present carefully guarded secret in
Mr Hales custody
Lest we forget the significance of
this episode says the Omaha Bee it
is well to recall that the effervescent
wrath of congress was first set bub
bling by a reference in tho presi
dents message to a measure limit
ing secret service activities as one
designed in tho interest of crimin
als In the dispute that followed
congress took the aide of the crim
inals It was monstrous that they
should be persecuted by tho atten
tions of the secret service officials
When a thief is found denouncing
the police honest men know what
to think and the position assumed
by congress was emphasized by a
remark in the presidents message
that possibly some congressmen had
a personal interest In limiting se
cret service work Let him whom tho
cap fits put It on
The fact that two members of con
gress from Oregon were convicted of
felony through tho efforts of secret
service men lends point to the Intima i
tions of the presidents message It
will not be doubted that other con
gressmen have been greatly annoyed
and perhaps embarrassed by official
prying into their private affairs If
there are any other reasons for ob
jecting to the use of means for de
tection and prevention of crime It Is
up to congress to produce them No
rogue eer felt the hatter draw with
good opinion of the law That sen
timent Is older than the presidents
message but It seems to belong
Rev Noble Strong Elderkin when
he stood at the head of the steps lead
ing into a gambling house and was
informed by one of the proprietors
there was nothing doing ho did not
laugh but felt like crying Now
looking backward to that night when
gambler and officer deceived him ant
politely led him away from the I
to a gay life ho not only laughs but
makes us laugh with him
Rev Elderkins sermon of Sunday
night Is rich in humor His story oC
the Raid with just a touch from
Mark Twain would be a masterpiece
Evidently Rev Elderkin did not
complete his education at college To
his fund of knowledge ho has added
much concerning the things that are
worldly since coming to Ogden and
ho no longer trusts Implicitly In the
utterances of policemen or council
men When he entered tho ministry
ho thought councilmen were above
guile and policemen were paragons of
honesty Now he distrusts both an
is thoroughly skeptical whenever
members of either branch of tho city
government approach him with assur
ances of any kind In regard to the
moral welfare of Ogden
When Rev Eldorkln halted at the
fop of the stairway to a gambling
den and turned to his companions
with the confiding trust of a child InN
a father a reproduction of a snap
shot of the expression on his face
would embellished the tale he now
tells His faith In human kind was
being tested to the utmost At last I
there came the denouement and Rev
lildorkln ceased to be gullible In the
expressive vernacular of tho street
hhe had to be shown That was a
great transformation In a minister

Use of Guillotine Revived

Bethuna Pas De Calais France Jan
11The first inflictions of the death
sentence in France for years past were
witnessed in this town today when
four murderers were decapitated by
the guillotine The four men had form
ed a band which Lad terrorized north
ern France and southern Belgium for
several years robbing assaulting and
murdering at will
As they wore led out of prison cries
of vengeance arose from tho largo
throng present and when the knife fell
four times In rapid succession the peo
ple present did not hesitate to evince
their satisfaction
The French parliament recently
passed a resolution In favor of tho
death penalty In France and the cab
inet a fortnight ago decided to carry
out tho ruling of parliament There
remain today eighteen persons in
Franco under sentence of death
The condemned were ignorant up to
a short time before the execution that
they were to die They had slept un
disturbed in tho hope that their sen
tences would be commuted They at
tended mass and were then led out In
front of the prison whore the guillotine I

Forty Degrees Above Zero In Ogden
Until Yesterday Northwest
Visited by Blizzards
During the past week up to Sat
urday at j2 oclock Ogden weather
maintained an even temperature at 40
degrees above zero an exceedingly
high temperature At that hour the
mercury began to fall and continued
j in the downward course until at 2
I oclock this morning It registered 15
1 degrees above tho zero mark Be
cause of the rather sudden change
I from the high to the low temperature
the moderately cold weather of last
night was much more noticeable than
I It would have been had it not boon
I preceded by high temperature
I The
remarkably warm winter
weather of the time indicated was
I damaging In some respects It inter
fered materially with the gathering
of ice and caused such an overflow in
the OgdCn river that the farmers In
