I A RESORT AT PROMONTORY
The Salt Lake papers arc proposing to make Antelope Island
r In ftreat Salt Lake a pleasure resort The statement is made that
4 the Gould and Harriman lines have entertained the proposition and
may be induced to bridge the lake BO as to provide transportation
facilities to and from the island
Before the Harriman officials make a decision we desire to call
their attention to a neglected opportunity for a pleasure and health
resort not on Antelope Island but that more attractive and conven
1 lent site at Promontory Point where at comparatively small cost
r i great sanitarium could be built
Promontory Point is on the OgdonLucin cutoff twenty miles
west of this city The lake shore on the promontory is of gravel
1 which would make bathing conditions ideal
I With transcontinental trains passing within a stones throw of
the most delightful body of water suitable for bathing the wonder is
I that the Harriman people have failed to make available as an at
traction that part of Great Salt Lake
The waters of the lake are said to possess medicinal properties
and it is stated that remarkable cures have been effected by bath
ing in the briny sea What a waste of natural resources to fail to
utilize those curative waters
A LESSON IN WILD OATS
I
I California papers are commenting on the float in the Fourth of
July parade at San Rafael which was made by the convicts in San
Quentin prison The float drawn by two magnificent dapple gray
horses and driven by one of the prison guards with a second guard
sitting beside him with a rifle across his knees was built upon a
square framework which was covered with a coarse screen and this
screen was stuck full of brilliant and harmonious flowers such bios
soms as seem to develop only under the hands of the skilled convict
I gardeners at San Quentin
But it was not the long square frame studded with fragrant
blossoms that caught and held the eye Surmounting this was a
miniature cellhouse an exact reproduction of one of the cellhouses
at the prison with painted gratings and numbers above the cell
I doors At each corner of the cellhouse which was fifteen feet long
stood a miniature guard tower exact replica of the towers which
dot the hilltops outside the prison walls No free man had a hand in
planning or trimming this rather startling float It was all done by
the trusties who work the gardens and flower beds They had stuffed
I
the space between the flower covered frame and the gray cellhouse
r with long grasses As the float moved through the streets of San
I Rafael these grasses waved gracefully in the breeze At a little dis
tance it is said the effect was odd very odd and the question is
i asked had some sly convict worked it out or was it wholly uncon
icious humor For the effect was of a grim penitentiary resting upon
it luxuriant foundation of wild oats
The habits formed in boyhood fashion the man C Wild Oats
those wild oats of youth have made more than one convict i perhaps
the bigger percentage of imprisoned men can trace their inglorious
careers back to the days of the sowing of wild oats
If some prisoner in San Quentin intentionally placed the wild
oats in the float he was thinking of the early mistakes which he
mademistakes which if avoided would have kept him an honored
a
i and useful member of society
THE POLITICAL WAR IN KANSAS
Speaker Cannon is a defiant politician He has invaded the
enemys country has gone into Iowa and Kansas and has open
i
ed his batteries on the insurgents within his party He is either
r foolhardy or thoroughly courageous as he has invited a storm of
criticism which may keep a man of his age busy explaining to the
end of his days
I So far he has held his own with Murdock of Kansas but the
insurgent leader is beginning to tell Congressional secrets that should
prove embarrassing to Uncle Joe or demonstrate the speakers
versatility in answering his opponents
The internecine fight should result in good in either making
plain that Oannon and the inner circle of the party are representa
1 I tives of the predatory interests or that they are but the victims of
I men of evil minds
For our part we would be pleased to have the conflict rage
until the expose is complete and those inimical to the best interests
of the people are banished from public life We are not so partisan
ly stupid as to desire to cover up the shortcomings within the Re
publican party which if persisted in will eventually wreck the
party Now with Republicanism overwhelmingly powerful is the
most opportune time in which to have a housecleaning and to sweep
all clever deceivers however prominent they may be out of the
sacred precincts long since dedicated to a noble cause by Abraham
Lincoln If Speaker Cannon is the representative of special inter
ests profiting by legislation of his making then Cannon should ba
I buried in oblivion if Murdock and the insurgents are prompted in
Detracting from their superior because of base motives then the in
surgency should be allowed to wither and die
i e The present denouement will do much to enlighten us all and
i point the way to duty
UNWRITTEN LAW IN UTAH
And now Utah is to be called on to say whether the unwritten
law can be pleaded in justification of the killing of a man A New
York jury evaded the issue in the Thaw case by declaring the slayer
of White to be a paranoic but in many other states particularly
the Southern States juries quite often go outside the strict construc
r tion of the statutes and free men who in the protection of their I
homes kill those offending against them and society I
John A Jones a mail clerk finding his wife consorting with I
Arthur F Sheppard and the two in the
act of registering in a Salt
fake hotel as man and wife killed
Sheppard The
guilty couple
had been in Ogden and in taking the night train to Zion came face
to face with the outraged husband If
Jones had known of this
liaison and awaited his chance to kill he is scarcely within the pro
tection of even the unwritten law but if
suddenly
confronted with
the perfidy of his wife and her lover brain
a storm
swept away his
selfcontrol then law or no law he is entitled to the deepest sym
pathy and the greatest possible degree of leniency
A woman with Mrs Jones
peculiar disregard of honor and
chastity IS scarcely worth the sacrifice

UTAHS BIG CHANCE
IN OIL INDUSTRY
Should Help Settle Problem of Mak
Ing Supply Meet Demand
Considering the great extent of tho
proven and unrpoven oil fields which
are tributary to Salt Lako City
such as tho San Juan Wayne Virgin
and Ulntah fields of Utah and the
Spring Valley and Big Horn basin
fields of Wyoming and the rapidly
growing Importance of tho oil In
dustry the charge that Utah capl
tallsts are giving to the Industry
much less attention than deserves
Is unquestionably well laid
Tho question which agitates the oil
producing world at this time Is not
the possibility of overproduction of
oil It Is that of assuring a steady
supply large enough to Induce largo
users to enter Into contracts for Its
delivery covering a term of years
Not only Is the Increased use of
fuel oil and of gasoline for automo
biles farm machinery and other de
vices little appreciated but It Is evi
dent that for railroad lovomotlves
nnd steamships fuel oil would soon
almost entirely replace coal were a
constant and sufficient supply of the
oil assured
Big Deal With Government
A deal of tho first magnitude In
enormity Is reported to be pending
between the Union 011 company of
California and the United States gov
ernment whereby the former Is to fur
nish the latter 50000000 barrels of
fuel oil for a given term of years
While the report Is yet uncon
firmed there are many things taking
placo within tho working forces of
the Union that bear out the report
and lead those versed In the oil In
dustry to believe It true says the
San Francisco Journal of Commerce
The report states that the gov
ernment Is ready to enter into such
a contract at any time tho Union
can show a surface storage of 10
000000 barrels
There are some who scoff at tho
report because of Its enormity using
as an argument that It would be an
Impossible undertaking for the Union
In that the entire production of tho
California oil fields for 1909 was but
000000 barrels all told which Is
true but they do not take Into con
sideration the fact that the 1910 pro
duction of the state will he more
than double that of 1909 The pro
duction from the Unions big Lake
view gusher alone has Increased
their output 1000000 barrels al

The rumor In quoted for tho rea
son that It shows that Californians
are agitated over the question of In
creasing their production of oil that
they may have a show of taking down
large contracts which have boon al
tered and others aro expected to bo
offered Tho enlarged use of oil In
not a dream It IB a growing reality
That Utah and Wyoming havo bil
lions of barrels of oil of much bettor
grade than that which California pro
duces Is not to bo questioned And
tho oil Is to be obtained by simply
going after IL
There Is every reason to believe
that within a few years time with

the money and other articles wore her
own She had not been telling the
truth and I questioned her carefully
Finally the woman admitted that
oho had gone through the pockets of
Sheppard while she kneeled beside
him after he had been shot down by
Jones But she said she thought It
was all right because Shoppard was
her husband Shortly before this ad
mission the woman told me she lead

IMMUNITY OF
THE EMBASSY
Washington July 20 While it has
long boon understood that Internation
al customs guarantees an ambassador
against arrest a case which involved
the immunity of several of his house
hold developed at the American em
bassy In Berlin not long ago It end
ed by tho ambassador being Instruct
ed to preserve the Immunity of tho
embassy and to flee that the service
of the papers upon tho servant took
place outsldo its precincts
A porter at the embassy it seems
answered tho ring of a tax collector
who did not know he was at the em
bassy The porter chided tho official
for his Ignorance In necking taxes at
the home of a dlplomatlo agent The
argument which developed was not
without boat and when it seemed to I
bo at Its height a member of tho am
bassadors household wished to pass
tho disputants
The tax collector protesting that ho I
was an official refused to stand aside
The report to the state department
says the men engaged In on uncivil
conversation of no importance which
resulted In tho tax collector seeking
tho arrest of tho portor for personal
Insult Tho German foreign office
then asked the ambassador to servo
tho porter
Tho two governments attempted to
effect a compromise the German for
eign office suggesting that the tax col
lector would receive an apology and I
tho American ambassador suggesting
his porter would mako one Tho com
mittee met and Instead of apologizing I
there was further altercation neither I
being willing to yield dignity The
whole business was finally closed up
when the porter went outside the em
bassy grounds and accepted service
Tho report does not say how tho court
concluded tho argument
