But if the authorities are reasonably veil oonvineed that the Bear Gulch are of that character they bould not waste a moment in beginning on that important highway. It should be pushed with all possible energy. in a case like this time is exceedingly t die-ore- ri raluable. STOP LYING. The Logan Xation, in urging the county commissioners of Cache county to hurry up a road from Logan to La Plata City, said, on Wednesday: "This route from the camp is a down grad- all the way to the Logan depot and is only 23 miles in length. There can be no other route fixed up to any point on the U. P. Railroad to compare with tuia L.van route. It is fourteen - miles nearer thitn the proposed Ogden road. And besides the Ogden road extends over a hill which would require teams to double up in pasting, and is also through a 15 mile canon which has many dangerous bridges and narrow embankmenta and in which it is often imposmble to pass tflium, and whijh is very rough and rocky." All that that part of the foregoing quotation which represents that there are lot of dangerous bridges on the Ogden canon road, and hills to climb, and narrow roads witli dangerous embankments is simply a mess of lies made out of whole cloth. Ogdon's road is perfection ia smoothness and safety to the place where a new road must be made for Logan as well as Ogden, and to try to gain an advantage by representing it otherwise is not only mean lying but contemptible littleness. Ogden is, by means of its rail connecwagon route, beyond all comparison the business base of the .Bear Gulch mines and any other pretense will not bear investigation. tions and direct Thekk is a movement among per men, probably in collusion with the new-sp-a V manufacturers of standard proprietary medicine and other goods, to fight the spurious imitations put on the market. A company of men builds up a very valuable reputation for some line of goods, by making a good quality and spending a great sum of money to get its sale assured. All at once a lot of bogus imitations are sent out by some Cheap John gang, closely resembling the genuine thing in the name and wrapper. The people are swindled by the counterfeit and the business of the genuine brand is broken down. The eition is for the newspapers to band together to back the meritorious facturers and smoke out the fraudu-''n- t imitators.

Many inquiries have been made aa to what became of that petition to the District Court for an order to restrain the "reform" mayor and council men from raising their own salaries. It appears that the petition was filed and tben the thing wae allowed to rest right there. It stopped because it wasn't pushed. The suit was hung up and there it hangs in the clerk's office to th's day. In the meantime the "reformers" go right on drawing the increased salary. This looks like a peculiar thing for men who painted the town livid with promises of "reform," "retrench meat," and "economy" before election, but we presume hII those sweeping promises were "just political lies," as "reform" Mayor Turner says they were, and were made just to get the "reformers" elected so as to give a set of hungry fellows a chance at the public crib. But coming in as they did, flaunting their whited "reform" garments in the face of the people and so soon after donning the grab and colors of common places the whole political lot of "reformers" in a spectacle before the public aot to be envied. This is particularly true of the "red form" Mayor, who, when some one in the previous council that the mayor's salary be raised, and it seemed possible that it might be for the benefit of his predecessor or Mr. McXutt, he very promptly opposed the advance. In a few weeks after that we find him urging an increase in the mayor's salary and taking the money he seemed unwilling to allow another to have. In fact, this whole "reform" farce has turned out such a gauzy game of inconsistency, incapacity, and selfishness that the word "reform" now sounds empty and ridiculous. pro-peee- BUILDIXO UP OGDEX. The concern on the hill is st ill grinding away at its pet hobby, namely, that The Commercial is not building up Ogden in a way to plase that organ of the republicans witi a democratic editor. Probably not This paper never built up Ogden . by playing a confidence game on the republicans. It never built up Ogden by playing catspaw to the forked conspiracy of the forked management of the forked republican organ. It never built up Ogden by support:ng polygamy. It never built up Ogden by throttling the Republic for the benefit of a hierarchy. It never built up Ogden in any of those ways, and it will smash the spider web of the forked concern on the hill every time it tries to do that sort of "building," even though it raves until it foams at the mouth with forked-phobiThat's what we are here for.
