Salt Lake City last year paid 13 mills on a dollar taxes That was
considered a high rate but this year another raise in the tax levy has
l been made by the city council and the property owners have been
called on to pay a tax of 15 mills
I The assessor of Salt Lake county has increased the assessed val
uation of Salt Lake City 6211000 aver the valuation of a year ago
I That increase is nearly onehalf the property valuation of Ogden
and if applied to tho taxgathering powers of Ogden would have
added almost 50 per cent to the citys tax revenues But on top of
this increase in valuation the city administration of Salt Lake City
has placed a tax rate 50 per cent higher than the tax levy oil Ogden
I What do the property owners of Ogden think of that What
would they say if Ogden with improvements quite as extensive pro
f portionately are being made in Salt Lake City and with city prob
lems equally as large to solve were to place a tax of 15 mills on their
holdings after the assessor had boosted valuations several million
i dollars 7
I F Ogden has a 1 per cent tax while Salt Lake City has a tax rate
r BO per cent higher While there remains such t discrepancy in taxes
In favor of Ogden the property owners of our city have reason to
1 That onehalf per cent or five mills difference in taxes in
favor of Ogden should be a factor in directing the attention ofSalt
Lake investors to this city
The moving pictures have shown that which the microscope
discloses in the examination of the germs which produce sleeping
It sickness when allowed to invade the blood vessels of a human being
f The germs enter the corpuscles of the blood multiply and destroy
the corpuscles Until Koch made a study of the sleeping sickness
little was known as to the cause of the disease In the last issue of t
Scribners Theodore Roosevelt describes the ravages of the disease
We passed by many islands green with meadow and forest
beautiful in the bright sunshine but empty with the emptiness of
I death says the former president A decade previously these
islands were thronged with tribes of fisher folk their villages stud
i ded the shore and their long canoes planks held together with fiber
II furrowed the surface of the lake Then from out of the depths of
r the Congo forest came the dreadful scourge of the sleeping sickness
and smote the doomed people who dwelt beside the Victorian Nile
d and on the coasts of the Nyanza lakes and in the lands between
Its agent was a biting fly brother to the tsetse whose bite is fatal
to domestic animals This fly dwells in forest beside lakes and
rivers and wherever i t dwells after the sleeping sickness came it
was found that man could not live In this country between and
I along the shores of the great lakes 200000 people died in slow tor
I ment before the hardtaxed wisdom and skill of medical science and
l governmental administration could work any betterment whatever
in the situation Men still die by thousands and the disease is slow
ly spreading into fresh districts But it has proved possible to keep
it within limits in the regions already affected yet only by absolute
ly abandoning certain districts and by clearing all the forest and
brush in tracts which serve as barriers to the fly and which permit
r passage through the infected belts On the western shores of Vic
toria Nyanza and in the islands adjacent thereto the ravages of the
I pestilence were such the mortality it caused was so appalling that I
the government was finally forced to deport all the survivors in
land to forbid all residence beside or fishing in the lake and with
this end in view to destroy the villages and the fishing fleets of
the people The teeming lake fish were formerly a main source of
food supply to all who dwelt near by but this has now been cut
cut off and the myriads of fish are left to themselves to the host of
water birds and to the monstrous maneating crocodiles of the lake
on whose blood the fly also feeds and whence it is supposed by some
that it draws the germs so deadly toliuman kind
The Spreckels paper of San Francisco is opposed to a secret in
vestigation of Alaskan affairs and says
Attorney General Wickersham and Secretary Nagol are on their
way to Alaska entrusted by the president with the duty of investi
I gating the grave charges made by Daniel A Sutherland formerly
United States marshal at Juneau Under ordinary circumstances
I Secretary Ballinger would be the proper officer to examine these I
I charges but Mr Taft evidently believes that the public has lost con
fidence in Ballinger to such an extent that any finding he might make
would be discredited
Sutherland was removed from office in a summary way last
winter as the result of a political intrigue He went on to Wash
ington and made disclosures to the senate judiciary commitee which
have been kept secret It is believed that if these charges were made
public they would arouse the whole oountry At least it is a sig
nificant fact that the president has deemed it necessary to send two
cabinet officers all the way to Alaska to examine them
Whether the people of America will be satisfied with the re
sults of a secret investigation conducted by Wickersham and Nagel is
quite doubtful They know that Alaska holds the greatest prizes as
yet unappropriated in the national domain and they know that the
Guggenheims have been active in manipulating the politics and ap
pointments of the territory They know that the Guggenheims main
tain a permanent lobby in Washington to look out for Alaskan affairs
r and altogether they are suspicious of hole and corner investigations
of the sort that Wickersham conducted in the Ballinger matter
The Logan Journal comments on the statement of a gentleman
not directly connected with the newspaper profession yet having
much business with the newspapers of the State who complained at
the recent meeting of the State Press
association that the papers of
Utah devoted entirely too little space to the booming of their own
localities He was apparently almost overcome by the scenic beauties
I of Ogden canyon his acquaintance with which he said was due to
the happy accident that it had
been selected as the meeting place
Otherwise although his home was within forty miles it was quite
+ likely that he would never have heard of the grandeur and natural
beauties then his
meeting enchanted
The Journal says that in this
respect probably all the papers
are in the same degree blamable They have all at some time and
probably a number of beauties
times dwelt upon the beauties of their respec
tive localities describing the things already familiar to their readers
until they fear repetition may bring ridicule Yet there is much in
what the gentleman said in
an this
connection and while
j such matter
t may be of but little value to
tmhay home readers it may serve to attract
the attention of strangers seeking a home therefore serve a good
purpose The speaker said he had lived in Utah for three years and
had constant access to all the papers yet did not know there was I
i a
4 such place as Ogden canyon much less one of go mimy Natural
beauties Perhaps he does not know of Logan canyon hence we shall
heretake the pains to inform him there is such a canyon to
There is such a thing as making a thing of beauty too familiar
and of harping too constantly on nearby attractions Addison says
that beauty grown familiar fades in the eye and palls upon the
k J
We are sorry for the man who living within forty miles of Og
den has never heard of Ogden canyon The canyon has been
written up from every point of view and for aypar or more has
been constantly kept before the reading public of Utah By reason
an electric line building through the gorge Ogden and even Salt
Lake papers have mentioned the canyon and its charms in almost
every issue The gentleman who pleaded ignorance at the meeting of
the Utah Press association would qualify as a juror in any case Per
haps he is one of those erudite fellows with a faraway look and a
more distant mind who is too deeply engaged in reading ancient his
tory to be fully awake to current events and preseut day wonders
There are bright Americans with minds so engrossed in making
money or writing books on Sec America First as to express aston
ishment when informed there ire scenic attractions such as Yellow
stone Park Yosemite Valley the Canyon of the Colorado and Ogden
Canyon It is well that there are people living so completely within
themselves as to afford the natives pleasure and pardonable pride
in pointing out our scenic grandeurs Half the delight of possessing a
beautiful scene is in watching the expression of surprise on the be
holder who viewing it for the first time makes evident that he has
not been surfeited by extravagant descriptions

Complete Head of the Ulntah Thcr

A long lime ago when this Ulntah
I basin and the surrounding moun
tains were raised above the sea and
I the mountains were lifted higher than
the basin a great fresh water lake
was formed says the Vernal Express
In those days there wero huge ani
mals In this neighborhood When
the Green river cut Its way through
the mountain harrier and the lake
was drained through Its channel there
lived along the banks and In the
stream land animals and water ani

Professor E S Riggs and his com
panions of the Field museum have
found a somplele skull of the Ulnlaii

Was Monoter Animal
Theaulmal had a bead three feet
long with three ols of horns one
pair on the John of the nose one
above the eyes and another poor
I back of tho ears The horns were
well developed and were used In
those prehistoric das to fight others
of his kind and defend himself ngaiuar
all comers He had a long curved
task in the upper Jaw with a keep for
It on the side of the lower jaw
It Is Interesting to learn that the
fossils of the oldest known ances
tors of the Uinlah thorium arc found
In Now Mexico and are about the
size of a Newfoundland dog They
I had no horns at that tlmo That wag
about 750000 years before the big
fellows browsed jn this basin Then
I they left their bones In the Big Horn
I basin og Wyoming At that stage
they were about as large as the tapir
and resembled the hlppotamus and
no horns had yet developed
Were Plentiful in Wyoming
In the Wind river basin of Wyom
ing they arc found with the horns
just beginning to bud and over In
the Drldger basin there are plenty
j of remnants lo show that they ware
I ilcntlful and the horns were fully
developed From the Brldger conn
I try to the Ulntah was not a long
Journey and it was supposed that
j they came to Uintah from that sec
