idle millions belong to the eople and

the policy is a good one and has tbe
sanction of the masses at this peculiar

also, and it may serve to deaden the
thrill of gratified spleen indulged in by
tha buccaneers who are engineering the
disorders now prevalent,.

"SHIPS THAT PAW-HOW!
The grain ships that pass this port
now-a-days to' get heir cargoes at tbe
metropolis may, in another brief year,
pans to the westward of Tongue Point,
for fli consummation of tbeir errands
of commerce. This is tha hope that ani
mate tba ordinary Aatorian; and it is
good to indulge the hope, since hope be
gets tbe spirit of acquisition, and an
active spirit goes after its best desires,
and generally gets them.
The big fleet that has entered this
port during tbe past few days Portland
bound for bread-stuffs wherewith to
feed the hungry of all nations has ac
centuated the ever-present idea of the
ambitious dweller by these , sea-gates
that, some day, these docks will be the
berthings of this great trade for the
Columbia Basin; snd this, mind you,
without ill-will toward Portland; for
the readjustment of the commerce of
this valley cannot be wrought without
the consent and aid of Portland, a con
dition that forever involves the com
manding and increasing interest of that
city in the program.
We confess we cannot hold with those
who insist that President Roosevelt
must be the candidate fop the Presi
dency next year. We are with them
heartily in the hope that this might
com to pass; but we have always felt
he would not enter the field again and
wa have seen nothing to warrant ns in
changing our mind. Nor do we believe
he is making any admissions as to bis
choice of a candidate, though it is not
unreasonable to credit him with the de
sire to see himself succeeded by a man
of his own trend and bent. He has been
called a politician, and he is that, in
the cleanest conceptiot and usage of
the term; and this, of itself, operates to
disparage the thought that he is com
mitted to either of the foregoing deduc
We believe Theodore Roosevelt is to
be a greater Senator than ever he was
a President; and what Is more, we de

that might otherwise hamper his acts

discussed in theatrical circles here.
Oscar Ham mere tein said:
"It is true that singers in Europe
receive very less than they do here,

into four figures, said:
Few people realize that opera is given

most expensive seats. Naturally the
director cannot pay enormous salaries.
Add to that the fact that the living
is very mnch cheaper In Paris and that

More Money Necessary to Carry
SALT LAKE CITY, Nov. 19,In an
interview with the Tribune correspon
dent at Provo yesterday, TJ. 8. Senator
Reed Smoot said:
"I think Congress ought immediately
to pass an elastic treasury bill which
would relieve the situation at once.
The bill should be a broad one and
should protect the government and at
the same time provide the money neces
sary to carry on the business la the
United States. Such currency would be
used only In emergency and would be
withdrawn from circulation when need
for it was psst. All other civilized
countries have such a law.
Tt seems to me absurd that there
is need for such an action at . the pres
ent time. The country is more pros
perous now than at any time In Its
history. There are tens of millions
more money in the United States than
m year ago. ji me close oi tbe year
