Great Britain except with the aid of
tho selfgoverning colonies Tho sit

last few years by the worldwide build
Ing of ships of the Dreadnought class
which at onco relegates the magnifi
cent British battleship fleets to tho
roar line of defense To reconstruct
the enormous British naval on Dread
nought lines would Involve taxation
beyond tho power of tho British peo
plo to endure Honco tho appeal to the
colonies for the creation of an im

Thero Is little doubt that tho col

Britain has given her colonies defense
In return for the great preponderance
ot trade which she has enjoyed

their lives The younger boy had
I entered the water and was wading out
to tho center of the slough when his
older brothor seeing him disappear
made a rush to save him as he know
the IIttlo fellow could not swim H

that biB brother In an effort to sao
him had caught a foot In a bedspring
which had been thrown Into the water

Theso are two diownlngs which
were prompted by the hand of fate
so wo arc told but fate had less to
do with the shocking fatality than
those responsible for allowing small
boys to go bathing alone It Is a dif
ficult task we know to convince
youngsters there la danger In their
pond or favorite river swimming hole
but parents should Insist on boys who
are export In swimming or men ac
companying tho beginners Even
when this rule Is complied with there
Is an element of danger
Thero have been ten drownlngs In
Utah this season and all of the Ill
fated have been small boys or babies
Wo do not recall a season In ton years
that boys while bathing have not lost
their lives In tho Jordan or other
streams of this state
There IB less danger In a largo party
of boys bathing In the streams and
still loss when ono or moro men who
can swim aro with tho children
Parents should Inquire closely Into
the habits of their boys while out of
school Theso vacation days make
active youngsters a restless venture
some crew who are capable of endless
mischief often at the risk of their
lIes and no form of their restless
ness Is fraught with more danger than
going swimming

Tho Salt Lake papers are making a
great hullabaloo ovor the closing of
tho Stockade but If there IB any
thing In rumor half that has been
written on tho subject has been
faked II
The Stockade Is only temporarily
closed tho buildings are not being
torn down and the queen of tho un
derworld Is not o bankrupt notwith
standing that extra editions of Salt
Lake papers lately havo boon dis
tributed on tho streets of Ogdon pro
fessional yclpers from Salt Lake
having been employed to shout the
sensational news All about the do
Btructlon of the Stockade
There Is too much made of these
raids because back of them there Is
nothing sincere
The Stockade should never have
been built and the lend women should
not havo been removed from their old
haunts In Salt Lake yet those who
wore delegated to wipe out the now I
quarters should have proceeded to tho j
task with clean hands If hail that
Is told In Ogdon Is true Salt Lako
will resound with scandal during this
falls campaign The mud that Is to
bo thrown will cling to the garments
of prominent jxaoplo on both sides of
the fight
It Is said tho entrance to tho
Stockado la to be replaced by a
large building and the city of cribs
reopened that Belle London Is still
supremo and that she Is not financially
distressed transfers of property har
ing been made to relatives as a safe
guard and that after tho campaign
of thin fall the rodllghts will burn
as brightly as before tho raid unless I
tho unexpected happens
Which all tend to provo thai tho I
wild statements the Tearing down
of the Stockado stories from Salt
Lako are but fiction put out for a pur
pose and screamed Into foe ears of
Ogdenllcs to have a local effect
Osdon Is movrag along In the reg

pilot way and whon tho authorities
hero are In noed of an Intrusion from
Salt Luke they undoubtedly will

There Is Just ono question on tho

whether that citizen Is a good ono or
a hid one
Tho question Is not Does Ogden
need free trado or tho protective
It Is not Do wo want a Democratic

The question lsm Does Ogden need
the saloon and oil that goes with It
whether that saloon is a dive or a
gilded parlor or does Ogden need a
clean city
Every thinking man and woman
knows that both the Republican and
the Democratic party Is almost Inex

Impossible for either party to shake
off the fetters which party leaders

It Is the socalled highclass saloon
that lures tho young boys to tho first
drink and not the dive with Us hid

Only a license so high as to bo ab
solutely prohibitive will materially im
provo conditions
To elect a major and a city cound
favorable to such a license or wbwt
Is preferable opposed to granting li
censes at all is an ambition worthy of
all good citizens
In a recent open letter Hon Joseph
S Peer said
If we can not have prohibition at
present by all means let us have bet
ter regulations and higher license If
tills falls then lot the movement bo I
started for the entire eradication of
the saloons from our fair city
Well the council has failed to raise
the license and now it remains for
somo one to start a movement for the
eradication of the saloons
It Is refreshing to see a man who
Is nol afraid to go on record as Mr
Pcory has and It Is very desirable to
boo a man In the mayors chair who
holds such sentiments in regard to
the saloons
It would be unfortunate however
to see such a man nominated by
cither of tho old parties and bound by
party lies to carry out the pledges of
party leaders mado in his behalf
Tho present major has done all that
he promised so far as the writer
Icnows although there are many who
aro disappointed that ho did not go
farther than he promised
What we need now Is a major who
will promise to go to the last limits
of his ability In that direction and will
make that promise In a public man
ner which betokens sincerity and be
gets confidence
And every councllmanlc candidate
should ha compelled to place himself
on record just as openly
What Is needed Is an Independent
tlckot a reform ticket or call it what
you will It Is not only needed but
It would bo elected for the people are
tired of crime suicides and violent
All that Is needed Is for an organi
zation to be formed and Ogden would
soon vindicate herself before the world
as a city that offer a good clean
place In which to live
Since speculation Is already being
mado as to possible candidates is It
not tlmo to start such an organization
of the better class of citizens as will
make good candidates a certainty
The advice Is always given by the
old party leaders ot course to attend
tho primaries and see that good men
arc nominated but tho citizen who IB
not even a cog In the political ma
chine knows that he stands about as
much chance of having a oleo In thu
primary as ho would have of chang
ing tho plane of a national conven
tion If he wore not a delegate
While there aro a hundred people
who might with propriety start such
a reform movement It would seem
that since Mr Pcory has already
placed himself on record all would
have conlldcnco In him as a leader It
he choso to accept the position And
so without consultation with any In
dividual party or organization I ear
nestly request Mm to start such a
movement and hereby nominate him
as temporary secretary to call a meet
ing to start said movement Is there

To Tho Ogden Standard During
tho recent session of the legislature of
this state when the bill for an act to
prohibit tho manufacture and sale of
Intoxicating liquors was pending the
opponents of prohibition vociferously
declared that they were as much op
posed to the evils of the liquor traffic
as nero prohibitionists but that they
believed these evils could be more
effectually curtailed by high license
and strict regulation than by attempt
ed prohibition They acknowledged
the great evils ot the traffic but In
sisted that prohibition does not pro
hibit The hypocrisy of these pro
fessions and these claims are mado ap
parent by the action of the city council
at Its last mooting In voting to post
pone the consideration of a proposed
ordinance Imposing a higher license
fee and providing for more strict regu
latlon of tho sale of Intoxicants The
majority of thE opponents of prohibi
tion aro not In favor of high license
and strict regulation They prefer
strict regulation to prohibition but
they prefer alack regulation or no
regulation to either The plea for
strict regulation was Interposed for
no other purpose than to defeat prohi
bition and as soon as the danger of
tho passage of a prohibition law had
passed we hoar no more from the
erstwhile advocates of high license
and strict regulation I knew at the
time that this would be tho case
When the devil was sick tho devil a
monk would be l
I When the devil got well a devil of a
monk was Jle
In view ol these facts there remains
I but ono thing for the friends of tem
perance to do and that Is to perfect
an organization to enter actively into
the next political campaign In the city
and also In the state and work for the
election of men to the council and to
both branches of tho legislature who
will stand firmly in favor of tho ab
solute eradication of tho saloon evil
