I S without opposition except at one point The Utah Light Railway
j company the principal land holder in the canyon is favorable to
the extension of the electric line and will offer no obstruction to the

With the rightofway secured the Eccles people will commence
construction work this fall and l ng before this time next year that
beautiful town nestling1 in Ogden Valley will be brought within 30
minutes of this city
Just west of the Eccles building on Twentyfourth street is an
i anatomical exhibit at the the entrance to which is the sign Men
Only The exhibit is part of a museum such as may be seen in
all the larger cities It is an impressive lesson in the wages of sin
and should be seen by men and even by the younger generation In
figures of wax it tells of the pitfalls which parents do not point out
to their boys but which should be made known
In addition to the vivid illustration of disease is an exhibition
of the heads of famous murderers and other criminals The Caesar
ean pperation also is shown
The exhibit from an educational standpoint is most impressive
Governor Gillett of California in his public utterances on the
JeffriesJohnson prize fight has been as shifty as a spring zephyr
On his trip across the continent he was interviewed repeatedly and
as often maintained the position that the laws of California did not
forbid a boxing contest such as the JeffriesJohnson affair On his
0 return to the capitol at Sacramento he reversed himself and issued
instructions to the attorney general of California commanding the
legal department of the state to do all possible to prohibit the prize
fight quoting from two state supreme courts to sustain him in his
which the contestants may
judgment that any contest for a prize in
do each other bodily harm is a prize fight
The governor had led the promoters of the fight to believe they
could go ahead without risk arranging for the fistic event and then
lack t f
blow His
at the last moment he inflicted on them a financial
firmness has made Governor Gilett appear weak and vacillating
The people of a New York town called on Governor Hughes yes

what Governor Gillett would do if the citizens of Yuba Dam should
petition him to stop baseball and that petition were to be backed by
a strong delegation of sentimentalists and extremists

Gifford Pinchot at the head of the 11
commission he said
IIWe want no such commission no
such masters
He said ho was opposed to the
commission on general principles and
said it made places for some people
and gao the commission an air of
exclusion and Imperial power
Mr Galllnger agreed with Mr Hey
burn and said
If the misfortune overtakes us of
having at tho head of the commission
the gentleman mentioned I can see
nothing but trouble will como of It
Senators Overman Clarke of Wyo

posed tho Heyburn amendment as sec

Gore Criticises Attorney General
While speaking In support of his
amendment Mr Gore criticised a de
cision of the attorney general author
izing the acquisition of more of the
Philippine lands saying that no
Mrstclasa lawyer other than tho at
torney general would have rendered
such a decision
Ho declared the tendency seems to
be to give tho sugar interests a mo
nopol of the sugar lauds in the Phil
ippines Mr Burton presented an
amendment the effect of which would
have been to restrict mining and
prospecting rights on withdrawn
lands but it wont down In the face
of a protest from Senator Snoot
Mr Burton was unsuccesHful in an
effort to strike out the word tern
porary as denning the proposed
Presenting nn amendment author
izing the withdrawal of coal lands In
Alaska and providing for their leases
Senator Bovcrldge said that If tho
principle contained In the amend
ment had boon adopted fifty years
ago enough would have been realized
to pay off the national debL
In the course of a colloquy with
Mr Beveridgc Mr Borah charged
the policy was to close up western
coal mines In the interests of eastern
miners He said tho leasing system
would place the control of the mln > s
in the bands of a row men Mr Car
ter declared coal now Is being shipped
from West Virginia to Valdez Alaska
when just as good coal could be had
within gunshot
This ho exclaimed Is not con
servation It la waste criminal
Forcsto Ruthlessly Slaughtered
Mr Beveridgo declared the forests
of Michigan had been ruthlessly
slaughtered to put more money Into
the already bulging pockets of prl
vato owners
He contended the general publlo
should have had some of the benefits
of these returns from their own prop
ertyIt Is a matter of deep regret that
the senator did not appear before the
public lands committee and tell it
what to do said Mr Wilson
Apparently that Is what I should
have done retorted the Indiana sen
Replying to Mr Bevorldge Mr Nel
son declared the leasing provision had
been withdrawn hy some one utterly
Ignorant of conditions In Alaska

NEW YORK June 1rhe Out
look of June IS 1910 will contain
the messages of welcome to Mr
Roosevelt which are printed below
From the President
The return of Mr Roosevelt from
Africa and Europe ought to arouse
and will arouse as great a demon
stration of welcome from his country
men as any American ever received
After the heavy cares of tho presi
dential office for nearly eight stren
uous years he sought rest by con
trast in the depths of the African
forests and in great physical oxor
ion In the hunting of largo game
and the procuring of valuable speci
mens of the fauna
of the dark con
No one who knows Mr Roosevelt
and no one who understands the
character of the African climate and
the kind of hunting In which he wai
engaged can minimize tho dangers
I from disease and actual combat with
wild beasts to which he was exposed
It goes without saying that wherever
there was danger he wolcomoH Its
octenient and delighted to observe
and record Its effect upon his own
emotions Ills trip to Africa wad
planned with the
thoroughness of a
military campaign and his plans were
executed with the vim and energy
that might ho expected
Was Royally Received
In view of what happened when he
reached civilization however those
of ug who had the provilcgo of talk
lag with him before hp went can af
ford to have some fun at his expense
In his frequently avowed determina
ion to avoid all public functions and
entertainments Ho expected to call
on the persons In authority In each
place which he visited to have half
an hours conversation with the ruler
If he would receive him and then go
on his way llko a private citizen see
lag tho things of Interest nnd hurry
Ins home Instead of < lhat his path
from the time hu landed In Europe
until ho sailed has
been u luyal

him not only by kings and the load

by the people have not been equaled

ohio because Grant had the deserved

in a war against civil wrong and cor

had In Europe shows the deep i m
press that his personality his char
actor his alms and his methods nn a
civil and social reformer have made
upon tho world at large UP was al
ways of course ft man of great
breadth of vision and catholicity of

us now with his experience enriched
by observatIon of each country of Eu

of quick acquisition of tho circum

the rulers of the leading countries of

Into world politics that will make

From the Mayor of New Ywrk City
The Honorable Theodorxiposevelt
Tho people of tho city C jjow York
do well to welcome Mr lAooaovclt
home Ho is of them bcWo of their
bone flesh of their fle1lhand they
have a soft sldo for him Through
a long ancestry he Js native and to
tho manor born here And the people
of the whole country will Join In the
welcome They havo witnessed with
pleasure tho honor done to Mr
Roosevelt In Europe Twice within
two generations have they now seen
the like In tho case of two of their
former presidents General Grant had
not only been president twice like
Mr Roosovelt but had one of tho
great military careers of the world
back of him No doubt some of the
extraordinary curiosity displayed la
Europe to see him and do him honor
arose from this latter fact But the
chief reason was the same as In the
case of Mr Roosevolt namely that
having been twice president of the
United States nnd become again a
private citizen docile to Just author
ity ho personified In the European
mind the idea of a government of
laws as distinguished as a govern
ment of men It IB that Idea first
vitalized on this continent and after
wards followed as an example In Eu
rope by slow degrees and by one na
tion after another which shall al
ways make one who has been in chief
rulcrshlp over the country an object
of profound Interest and reverence to
the rest of tho world In ono form
and another we expressed It In tho
beginning In Its threefold division of
power In all of our fundamental In
struments of government lie lofti
ness of the conception being some
times expressed In equally lofty and
felicitous language as for instance
In the Massachusetts bill of rights
In the government of this common
wealth tho legislative department
shall never exerclso tho executive
arid judicial powers or either of
them the executive shall never cxer
clso the legislative and judicial pow
tirs or either of them the judicial
shall never exercise tho legislative
and executive powers or either of
them to the end It may bo a govern
ment of laws and not of men
Great problems now confront us for
solution the accumulation of more
than two generations of men more
bont on their individual success If
not greed than on the public weaL
No few hut all of us are to blame
for it either by actual commission or
b Indifference and neglect With
nu era now drawing toward Its close
let us got our standpoint anew In this
great conception of government to
the end that wo may loau all fear as
we most certaInly shall of a resort
to force to right whatever has grown
up among us that Aultolh nol a com
monwealth and hag In It the canker
of death to government of equal op
portunity to all and favoritism or
