Somo people are so anxious to show how little they know that
r they rush into print and censure ten members of the City Council
the Mayor and City Attorney who have been elected by the people
to look after the peoples interests and when it is pointed out that
these overeager and selfappointed guardians are wrong they rush
pack into the papers to say The Mayors reply was not dignified
he hurt our feelings and did not bring more water to the new reser
As the Mayors communication was not written to bring water
to the reservoir he probably will agree to that proposition
0 A Kennedy secretary of and in behalf of the Chamber of
Commerce asked the city to collect 1 rental from T W Horn and
the Strongs Canyon Water company for the use of the citys water
Of course the collecting of such rental would be impossible
simply because the agreement entered into between Ogden City and
the irrigation company and Mr Horn does not provide for such pay
ment but it does require that such parties shall use the water for
Ogden City keep and maintain it until Ogden City wants it and said
Mr Horn and Strong Canyon Irrigation company pledge themselves
within five days on demand of Ogden City to surrender said water
In case said parties refuse to surrender the judgment record in
book 5 page 321 says
IIIn case said parties shall fail or refuse to surrender said
water to said Ogden City then this decree shall operate as a deed of
conveyance and the City of Ogden may enter upon said premises and
take such water at pleasure after five days notice
How any man with ordinary horse sense can state that Ogden
City has lost its water rights notwithstanding an agreement was
entered into when Judge Rolapp was District Judge with Strong
Water company and T W Horn to use said water for and in consid
eration of 250 paid by Ogden City to said parties until the city
wants it is beyond our understanding
For a thousand years the common law has been that a tenant
can never supersede his landlord while holding any right3 or prop
erty by agreement
Again the state law which is very plain on this matter reads
as follows
Section 1238 X23 specifically provides That here can be no
abandonment of water rights unless the owner or his successors shall
fail to use the water for seven years
In this case the owners Ogden City and its successors have
used the water every year and hence there can be no possible aban
donment by Ogden City of its rights
Again if Ogden City had lost its rights Mr Horn and the irri
gation company would not be the owners of it because they are act
ing as agents for the city and are simply keeping the citys title
The note to the section of the State law above quoted says
To constitute an abandonment of water rights there must be
an intent to abandon coupled with some act of relinquishment by
which the intent is carried out1
It will be seen that Ogden City has made no act of relinquish
ment in fact to the contrary it entered into an agreement and paid
the Strong Canyon Water company 25000 to take care of the water
for the city until the city demands it on five days notice
Now the Mayor does not care a rap what the Chamber of Com
merce or the Improvement League or other selfappointed censur
ers and congratulators say or do He docs however state that
if any of these selfappointed lians should find something that is f
1tot citys interest to know such as a water right about to expire
he will esteem it a special favor if they communicate to him in a
confidential way and promises after having had an opportunity
I to correct the matter and save the city from harm to make the
J matter public nnd give full credit
The Mayor maintains that if any of the citys water rights
named by the Chamber Commerce are in danger that the rushing
into print by the secretary would be sufficient notice to the people
generally that there might be something wrong and be an invitation
I for some one to step in and take away the rights of the city
If these unofficial organizations really have the citys interests
I at heart and desire to do good they will not rush into print with
1 their stories but will give the Mayor or the committee having i
charge an opportunity to safeguard the city before publicity
If the city lost its water rights by virtue of seven years non
I use of water as claimed by the Chamber of Commerce such water
j right was lost on September 23 1909 and now it would be too late
to do anything But just to make it interesting for the Chamber of
Commerce the Mayor authorizes us to state that he will deposit
25000 in the First National Bank if the Chamber of Commerce
will do likewise and the attorney of the Chamber of Commerce and
the attorney for the city can prepare the legal documents and insti
j tute a friendly suit simply to test the question as to whether the city
has lost its rights the parties who appear to be right to take the 500
the losing party to pay the attorneys fees on both sides and all costs
of court giving a bond to that effect
The decisions of the Interstate Commerce Commission handed
down today are the most important ever rendered by that body and
promise a widespread readjustment of the jobbing or wholesale busi
I ness of the intermountain region and Pacific Coast
Utah rates from Missouri river points are reduced 18 per cent
I and equal or greater reduction is granted to Nevada and the interior
points in the Northwest
I What effect this scaling down of freight rates will have is at
present problematic but a local wholesaler says Ogden jobbers will
gain no advantages and may have their field of activity considerably
restricted by reason of other cities within the Utah zone enjoying
better and more equalized rates than prevail at present
The rates from water points in the Northwest to interior points
I in Oregon Idaho and Montana are ordered reduced which may give
jobbing centers in those states an advantage which will exclude
Utah wholesalers from much of that territory now covered by our
commercial men
But as we have said it is too early to determine the full force of
the decisions i in fact it will be necessary to await the full text be =
fore attempting to measure the effect of the action of the Inter
state Commerce Commission
But one thing seems certain and that is a material reduction in
the price of goods throughout the intermountain country With low
er freight rates the wholesalers must make reductions on the prices
of goods and the retailers in turn will be forced to give the public the
benefit of the change in transportation charges so that while the
wholesalers of jobbing centers such as Ogden may lose instead of
gain the people as a whole will be made the beneficiaries of the new
order of things
Ogden has become a point of supreme importance in the tele
graphic service of the Western Union company Beginning Satur
day all wires from the Pacific coast which at present have connec
tion east with the trunk lines crossing the state of Nevada will be
switched to the north and south of San Francisco and brought in to
Ogden on the north over the Oregon Short Line and on the south
over the San Pedro wires

Franco in three periods Jrom 1800 to

of France was restricted to Paris tho
period from 1848 to 1876 whon the
bank became truly a national Institu

mental banks of Issue by Itn aid In
thu exteuRlon of the railway network
and by its masterly conduct of tho
negotiations for the payment of tho
great war Indemnity to Germany and
from 1875 to the present time
The narrative IB very far from be
ing a mere historical summary of the I
development of the Bank of Franco
I Itself but traces tho mannor In which I
the big credit companies grow up
with the growth of French capital and
its distribution at home and abroad

and others who are to report tho big fight
Yesterday two Western Pacific wires were cut in at Elko and
I brought in to Ogden from the east end over the lines from Salt Lake
I here Four wires from Salt Lake to
Ogden will be rushed to com

overflow which will be routed from Rono south to Los Vegas on
the Clark road and north to Ogden
By Saturday the local Western Union office under W J Der
mody will be operating two wheatstone three quadruplex and five
duplex instruments in addition to the heavy equipment always avail
able and it is estimated that the Ogden office will be capable of
transmitting 50000 to 60000 words an hour
Superintendent S E Leonard of Denver and General Electrician
MoKisick of Chicago have been here arranging the new circuits
which give to Ogden an unequaled ganglia of wires
