There is no intention on the part of the Utah Dem
ocracy to side track Senator Rawlins. It's so sel
dom that a Utahn and a Democrat attain distinction
of any sort that Rawlins can consider himself firmly
tacked on the party pedestal and the followers will
fall down and worship. lie came back in time to
participate in the party picnics and to do the chief
talking stunt at all functions and his recent rant in
the senate anent the awful army and the Philippines
is not so far agone as to escape modest reference.
And too, Rawlins helped bring some foreign money
into the coming campaign in Utah. It looks very
much as though he is to be leader, dictator and boss,
and those arc the very things u.ic Democracy has
long lacked in Utah. Those in apparent command,
including the State Chairman, declare without reser
vation that the Democratic convention will not com
mit itself on the senatorship. This means that the
few anti-Rawlins, anti-Smoot, gentiles in the party
will not succeed in forcing a pledge for some candi
date like Powers or Hiles.
Roylance of Provo is getting lots of joy out of his
recently acquired state chairmanship. He has no
candidate for anything (except himself for anything
the party may give him) but he scents Democratic
victory in all the winds that blow, from the street
corners in the metropolis, to the trackless sage brush
flats, where the sheepherder has forgotten the mer
its of a tariff on wool in his hatred of a trust on
beef. Mr. Roylance says, however, that a whole lot
of help is coming to the Democracy through public
disgust with the present domination of the republi
can machine. And he says that the domination isn't
all vested in the Silver King but has its ramifica
tions through the Grand Central represented by Ed.
Loose and his mining satellites; through the sugar
trust of which T. R. Cutler is the Utah agent and
through the church as far as the Apostolic influence
of Reed Smoot extends, which is some little ways
But there may be a rupture in the Republican party
as between Smoot and his opponents. There is no
doubt but that the Apostle is in the race and no
doubt but that he has permission from authorities
closer to, God than he but ho really isn't relished by
the Junior Senator who is now on -.is way to Europe,
instead of here, handling the fight. It is admitted
that Kcarns would like to see Wells succeed Rawl
ins. So would Wells. In fact it is known that the
ambitious Governor has already sent emissaries into
the far corners of the state to drum up sentiment in
his behalf. The funny part of it is that the emis
saries met a blast from the trumpet of the Smoot
supporters and were so overcome thereby that they
divulged the purpose of their mission and confessed
There are many straws pointing to diverging winds
among the Republicans, one of which was the fail
ure to elect a state chairman at the recent meet
ing of the committee, and this notwithstanding the
necessity of the man who is to direct the next cam
paign, being early enough in the field to get his bear
ings. George M. Cannon couldn't get the chairmanship.
His senatorial aspirations barred him. The friends
of other candidates saw how dangerous it would bo
to have Cannon in charge of the campaigning and
the distribution of the funds. In fact with Cannon
as chairman there would have beeen no funds, be
cause each senatorial candidate instead of trusting
his coin to the general committee would have placed
it where it would do the most personal good. James
Anderson didn't want the job because he would
rather stand discreetly between the factions, and
get himself carried into the four years term of county
commissionership. Really the convention will have
a high old time in finding a chairman. They will
be as scarce as Mortenson jurors and finally one will
probably be caught out in the alfalfa fields. And it
won't be Walton.
'The congressional situation has not yet taken form.
Sutherland has stated to his friends that he will
not make the race again. He reserves the right
to say later what he will do about the senatorship,
In the meantime his friends would like to see George
M. Cannon nominated for congress. It would remove
George M. from the senatorial lists and give an ex
cusc to oppose Smoot and Wells on the grounds that
a non-mormon should go to the senate. But the
Sutherland forces expect to profit most in the event
of a deadlock between Wells and Smoot, which
might reesult if the church holds aloof. (And it
The Carson Appeal ought to be too big a paper
to be untruthful. It charges that this paper defends
the torture of Filipinos. It coined that charge out
of its own perverted imagination. We have seen
no defense of torture from any source. The ratio of
brutes in the army may be as large as among the
people outside. For the outside ruffians, there are po
licemen and police courts, but the record of the police
courts is not the record of the American people. In the
same way a case now and then of ruffianism in the
army is not the record of the army as a whole, but
evidently the Appeal would be glad to make it such.
The burden of the criticism of all such papers as
the Appeal is meant to lie against the army generally
and that is where they are making a mistake for the
people will clown any party that tries that.
