HI I j hal would not 'be receiving 50 per cent of the
Hfi I J present wage. Of all modern humbugs, the af-
Hjj I i fected love of the Democratic party for working
H men Is the most gigantic.
HI j Again it declaree that "constitutional guarah-
Hj j : tees are violated whenever any citizen' is denied
I' the right to labor."
, It is a plain propositbn but it is that Very dc-
I nlal which Democrats like Tom Patterson of Colo-
' rado are'always ready to defend. It was out of his
defense' of that very thfing that all 'tffe labor trou
bles of 'Colorado culminated In the deplorable con
dition which existed there three months ago.
j: Of course it includes the humbug that the Re-
' publican policy of "starving home development in
order to feed the greed of conquest" is opposed.
' The answer to that is that there is not one
w (. word of truth in either charge, there is no homo
Hji ' development starved, there is no foreign conquest
H i "vfed; more, the Republican party and policies have
H t ; caused the chief developments of the continent,
H I . the development of the manufactories which give
H 1 millions bf men employment, I he dovelopment of
H i the country between the Mississippi and California
Hl, and Oregon. Except for Republican policies we
m L should still be buying most manufactured articles
ii brbught from abroad, and instead of the progress
1 of the great inter-mountain region it would still
p.; be half a wilderness and half a stock range.
m 5 The conquest referred to is the Philippines.
H I, They were purchased as fairly as California was
B 1 purchased, and what has been done ,and is being
Bl: ; done there has been as sacred a duty as was what
B' ) i was done in Cuba.
H ! The platform declares that "large reduotjond
njj v can easily be made in the annual expenditures of
B i the government without impairing any branch
Kj'r of the public service."
m 'ri That is possibly true, but every Democratic
Rfgi National platform for thirty years has made the
Kff Same averment, and when the opportunity has
JH j been given the party to prove the truth of the
averment it has always not only failed, but has
added to the expenses of the previous administra
tion. Again, it deplores the refusal of the United
States Senate last spring, to permit Investigation
committees to be appointed to try to unearth the
corruption in the various departments.
It was too bad, was it not. If the committees
could have been appointed, the story of what those
Committees were going to do, would have supplied
campaign material for every petty Democratic
sheet and every mouthy Democratic orator all
summer long. That was done in 1870; the cam
paign was made on a reform ory with the result
that not one of those committees could find one
thing wrong to report. It would have been the
playing of the same old tune over again, and the
Senate properly sat down upon the dishonest
scheme. We shall return to this theme from-timo
to time. The above will do for today, but Repub
licans should keep in mind that Mr. Moyle stands
pledged to that stuff, so does Judge Powers, so
does every candidate on the Democratic ticket. If
elected, in their several capacities every one of
those candidates will have to "bear testimony" to
the truth of that bogus gospel. If a Democratic
Legislature is elected, it will elect a Senator to do
the same thing. Do the Republicans of Utah de
sire that? They have been betrayed in a vital
place; there is a mighty attempt being made by a
journal that has always been supposed to be a
Republican journal, to turn the State over to the
party of stagnation and disaster. Will Republi
cans see to it that the attempt shall fail?
Senator Dubois demands of his brother Senator
Fairbanks that he shall discuss the anti-polygamy
plank of the Democratic platform. That should be
easy for Mr. Fairbanks, he would but have to say
that it was practically a piank stolen from the Re
publican platform of 18G0 44 years ago; that

those wore the sentiments of the Republicans who
pressed the prosecutions of what was unlawful in
the Mormon creed and practice, until those prose
cutions brought the revelation frorn President
Woodruff, doing away with polygamy" and causing
the President and Apostles to promise that there
should never be any more domination of the peo
ple, bytle priests, in matters political, that from
childhood he has had but one uplnion about any
rule or practice of any people in the United
States, who have assumed to be a law unto them- j
selves and to defy any laws of the United States. j
If he only knew enough of the sit-
uation he might ask Senator Dubois why '
the Democratic National convention sat down
upon the caustic plank against the Mormon
practices which he carried to St. Louis and
adopted a mere platitude which every man, wo
man and child in the East endorses, and did that
merely to try to catch the influence of the differ
ent organizations of women in the East.
Senator Fairbanks can well afford td decline,
on a hurried tour, discussion as to the: further
remedies needed; in as much as his brother Sen
ator, who is a very bright man, and who has been
prospecting for that end for years, has never
been able to locate a true fissure vein; but he will' '
have time tp express his opinivii of the wisdom
of springing a new party by Republicans, on the
eve of a most important Presidential election, with
the knowledge in advance, that four-fifths of all
the recruits they could possibly muster would be '
Republicans, and thereby jeopardize the Republi
can electoral vote of the state.
Chief Joseph of the Nez Perces tribe, who died
on Thursday night of last week, was a very great
man, though a savage; he wanted to be friendly
with the whites and was for many years. But
when the Government insisted upon him and his '
people going upon a reservation, he took the war-
