III OOTDWIN'e WiBJBKLY. I
I THAT UNYIBLDING RULE.
I J Hon. Frank Cannon has been a Senator of the
I jl United States. Ho knows what real citizenship in
I: ;1 this country means. He knows the kind o rule
I ! that is seeking to debase and make serfs of every
I I Mormon voter in Utah on Tuesday next, but he
Hj J has not the strength to denounce it and to call
II 1 1 upon other young men like himself to assert their
II manhood at the polls and rebuke this usurpation
j of power on the part of the chiefs of the dominant
I creed in Utah. We suspect his reason is that he
I ' "" 1 does not wish to jeopardise the influence and
1 standing that he now has among Mormons, know-
fllfl 1 ng kw rigid and unyielding that priestly des-
I 1 potism is.
That fact ought to be a notice to the United
1 States Senate of what this Utah system really
! 1 means, and what a menace it is to free govern-
j I ment, and ought to prepare that body to look
I: If I closely into the political and personal status of
B . H 1 Apostle Reed Smoot when he presents himself at
i 1 i the Senate door bearing a commission as Senator,
I. m 8 a commission voted for by servile voters and
: m ,il signed by a Governor whose official acts are sub-
! :p I ject to orders from the head of a church, which
' jlf 1 is moreover a temporal kingdom, in direct oppo-
' m ,9 sition to the spirit of our institutions, and which
in 1 1 1 lacks only the power to openly deride and defy the
m I laws of the United States. Apostle Smoot really
m I has no more place in the Senate of the United
i! ,i States than would have the sword-bearer of the
1 1 : 8 Sultan of Turkey.

H'i a deal of it comes from the north and west. This is
H' m , I" a reproach to the farmers and horticulturists of
if 1 ; Utah. It is a shame that Utah supplies a market
li I '8 for any save tropical and semi-tropical fruit from
H M I the outside. It is the more so because what fine
Hj I fruit Utah does produce is pronounced by experts
H' M to be finer than any grown elsewhere.

H: M I Tuesday, and it wont' be hard to count the

There is a little story going the rounds of the
clubs, and the men shouldn't enjoy it alone, so
here it is:
A young gentleman called on his fiancee, and
in answer to his ring the maid told him that he
could not see the young lady. But he would not
listen, and walked on into the hall. A sweet voice
came from above, "Is that you, Jack?" "Yes, and
I must see you. I have something important to
tell you." "But you can't; it is impossible. I just
finished my bath."
"Oh, that's all right. Slip on anything and

This edition of the history of the expedition
under the command of Capts. Lewis and Clark
comprises an unabridged reprint of the edition of
1814, to which all the members of the expedition
contributed. Their orders from Congress to ex
plore the country beyond the Great Continental
Divide, to study the Indian tribes, and to make a
careful record of everything they found were car

united make a valuable addition to the long list
of American achievements.
