Thk CoMMKuri At. has made no charges against any man or any combination of men. It has only said that the city of Ogdeu needs the active work of a Chamber of Commerce, and because of the absence or lack of this work is Buaeri-oual- y a ffering. But while it is true that two men came to the editor of The Commercial and object! strongly to the language used that a" -- ;ioM7W8oTrue them sanctioned every eoore .aid. of As for word the two men, The Commkr-ciA- L cares nothing. They are both men ho are noted aa kickers against any thing that is for Ogden's interest No name will be mentioned this morning, but the men who are signified ought to be ash n mod of themselves for having interposed the puerile objections which they urged why the Chamber should not meet, and they ought to be doubly ashamed for having placed themselves in opposition to the progress of the city. The Commercial does not argue that the active existence of a Chamber of Commerce is all that the city needs to make it a second Chicago. But it does argue that the work of such a body will do a great deal toward advancing the material interests of the city, and that the Chnmber should enjoy an active existence in order that the city may not fall behind in the race for supremacy. Other cities have one or more organisations similar to the Ogdeu Chamber of Commerce, and all of them are doing active work. Of all the cities m the west Ogden is probably the only one in which the commercial body is 3ond. Gentlemen of Ogdeu, it is bad, very bud, to advertise to the world that the Ogden Chamber of Commerce is dead, but time affer time The Commercial has urged that the Chamber of Commerce meet and reorganize, and so far no response has come; no meeting has materialized. Hence the only thing left to do is to say that the chamber is seemingly dead and that Ogden is suffering thereby. It is usless to say that Ogden is growing without the aid of the Chamber. The question is, would not Ogden grow more rapidly were its Chamber of Commerce in good working order. Last night a meeting of the Board of No meeting Directors was called. materialized. The night was stormy and that may have been a plausible excuse. But another meeting should be called for Mondny or Tuesday night and it ought to be attended by every member of the board. Then let a general meeting of the Chamber be called and the winter's work set on foot immediately. Thb Commkrciai. is not cranky on this subject, notwithstanding the childish criticism of the Evening Portage Stamp, which seems to comprehend the cituution about as thoroughly as it comprehends the necessity for its existence. Eithor subject paralizes it But The Commercial is anxious that every means be used to advance the interests of the oity and surely an active Chamber of Commerce is one of the best agencies through which to accomplish this result. Now, gentlemen of Ogden, thrown off this lethargy, this apathy, and set this w one-tim- e lc-c'-a . mril-U-mn- iia 0'its ft mkuM t u.

Thb proposition that Judge (Joodain represent the Liberal, or Geotilee, of Utah at Washington, if be ia not eWted delegate, ia a good one and ought to be carried out. Of eourae be would not have the influent in CougreM, nor would the territory of Utah have the tame recognition, should be not be elected, but the Mormon church has been represented there a king time with out a Gentile representative, and it ia urely time that the representation should be evened up. If Judge Good win ia elected he will be a delegate of Utah for the territory and will look after the interests of the territory, and in that case bis duties will be greatly different from those which he will assume in case he goes to represent only the Liberal party Elect Judge (ioodwin of the territory. if possible, and if it cannot be done then send him to Washington as the repre sentative of Liberalism in Utah. As a Liberal representative lu Washington he would have much more influence in Congress than John T. Came as delegate to Congress. Caine has always watched exclusively the interests of the Mormon church and will probably always pursue the same course. Hence he should be defeated, if (xissible, and a man sent to Congress who w ill care for the interests of the whole territory; but if that is not possible, if the Mormon church is still to be represented, send another man there who will watch the Gentile interests as well as the interests of Utah. ASPHALTUM WALKS. Some months ago The Commercial made some very serious objections to the work being then done on the Asphaltum walks around the city square. Results have shown that the work was poorly done and that the price paid was greater than work of the same kind could have been done for. The same man, probably, who did the work here, put down some walks in Provo recently and of this work the Provo Iitiuirfr says in its last issue: Either the asphaltum crossings that have been laid are inferior in quality or they have been used too soon. Several marks of wagon wheels ami horses hoofs appear and w here the walk approaches the street railway track the ends are fast breaking oil and becoming rugged. If it is because the work is inferior, it should not be accepted by the certainly : ... : :a : V vii mml 11 u is ioecause li inas neen used too .sojtllj, ywlyl ' exercised in the future. The people on 7th, J and I streets who have been called by public notice to appear before the paving commission tomorrow morning will only have to refer that body to the "asphaltum" crossing without naming any other objections to their paying for the proposed pavement in front of their property. The people want good pavements on the principal thoroughfares, but they will not be compelled to pay for such material of which the street crossings are comjioHed, The work now being done in this city is of a superior quality and bears the tost of use very satisfactorily. Armenia may be called the JPoland of The once proud empire, with language, religion and traditions of its own, has been despoiled and divided. Russia, Persia and Turkey have had an equal share in the spoil, and at the present time only of the three millions of Armenian race live in the district of Turkey in Asia to which the name of A men inn properly belongs. These unfortunate inheritors of an ancient name are more miserable than their brethren who dwell beneath Russian or Persian rule. With loss of freedom, the trace of ancient pride and manhood which they retain only makes more intolerable the oppression of the Turk-No-t because they are Christians are they persecuted but because money can be wrung from them, and because, being Christians, they have no rights which the Turkish nre bound to respect. Russia, to whose church their faith is allied and to whom of their race already holds allegiance. Inds in this oppression a welcome opportunity for interference, but is held in check by England whose commercial interests require the continuance of the Turkish rule. Like Poland, Armenia doss not seem to have the elements of natuarl regeneration within herself and at present no nation is able and willing to help her. The wail of her distress is an additional count in the indictment which history is preparing against the Turks, most cruel and debased of the Mohammedan nations. Asia. one-thir- d one-thir- Hknry M.

Globe-)emoer- at New York S"un: The fat women have come back to the park. They are not to be numbered in one, twos, dozens or scores, but literally by the hundred, and their return means a repetition of tho curious scenes of last spring in the more secluded and solitary paths of big playground. There are a great many women in this city whope superabundant weight is the cause of keen and poignant anguish. They are cures, "cold presses," and taking anti-fa- t try every system of banting with religious zeal, but still they continue to grow-morand more like bailoona. With every added pound of weight comes a more dense and heavy load of gloom. They go from doctor to doctor, but the" story is always "exercise," and as this is gradually being recognized as the only cure for obesity, the curious spectacle is afforded in Ceutralpark of great numbers of very heavy, highly respectable aud well dressed but abashed at a ladies ploughing along the rate that would astonish a sprinter in training. A merciful veil was drawn over this performance last year, except in the case of one or two remorseful writers, but yesterday morning the camera fiend was noted in a commanding street position near the Seventy-seconentrance of tho pr.rk, and it will now only l a question of time when pictures of New York's fat Four Hundred appear in the daily press.
