g^^The Great Temptation
'•' ? ' ' ' ' * : ''^^.
XJsually Presenting Itself
if f"" ' : W^^^^^ r
To those business men who \ seek popular patronage, is the
tendency to supply the wants of customers
At ths Lowest Price, by offering them the Cheapest and Poorest Goods
that are Manufactured in the Whole Realm of Shoddjism.
It requires a careful and practical experience, combined with' SOUND JUDG-
MENT and SUFFICIENT CASH CAPITAL to enable any Merchant, however
enterprising he may be, to purchase a satisfactory quality of J goods, and sell them
at prices that will prove a benefit to the people. illlS"-'
THE MOST EMPTY-HEADED
BUSINESS MAN
Can, on the contrary, go into the market and purchase shoddy goods, merely made to
Bell, but not to satisfy, and as he paid but little for them, he can. sell them at low
figures, especially by placing them in the hands of pushing, energetic salesmen, who do
not hesitate to make any exaggerations they think fit, while at the same time arguing
that here "NO MISREPRESENTATION IS ALLOWED !"
The consequence is, that when competition becomes close, WHEN THE
STRUGGLE FOR SUPREMACY BEGINS, the first step often taken to undermine
the efforts of rival Houses is to substitute shoddy articles, instead of goods that
will prove durable and satisfactory, MAKING A BIG SPLURGE UPON LOW
PRICES, in order to attract the attention of the careless or inexperienced pur-
chasers, and as a forlorn hope gain new customers by this means to compensate in some
measure for the loss of those who have decided that they can do better elsewhere. ,
WITH THIS SORT OF THING .
i
WE
WILL HAVE NOTHING TO DO!
#
Even though we have reason to believe that the methods we have hinted at are
\ about to be used as weapons against us. But we will combat all opposition' by
using means so plain, honorable and simple that ultimately the public must be con-
vinced

. San . Fbahcisco, December 16th.— The
trial of the case of John H. Burke against
Flood et al., was resumed in the Superior
Court to-lay, before Judge Sullivan. - ff"
- R. M. Bullard, foreman of the Ophir and
Mexican mine, was called and testified that
he was underground foreman of , Con. Vir
ginia in 1872. He gave a description of the
work done in this mine in 1872 and 1873, and
claimed that the mine was of little value
during most of that time ; but admitted that
Opbir, just north' of . Goidd & Curry, just
south of Hale & Norcross, Savage, Chollar,
Crown Point,' Belcher and Yellow Jacket —
all on the same lode as Con. Virginia — had
up to that time found large bodies of ore and
paid dividends, while there had been a great
deal of excitement and speculation in Coin
stock shares — Crown Point about 1871 ris

I Hugh Lamb, underground foreman of the
Con. Virginia and California mines, also
testified to Con. ; Virginia being of little
value in 1872. .V
: Havens, Secretary of Con. Virginia, pro
duced a list of proxies voted at the annual
meetings from 1875 to ISBO, nearly all of
them running to the President of the com
pany first, Edward Barron, and then Charles
H. Fish. According to the minutes of the
annual meetings the number of stockholders
present ran from one to a dozen, including
the Directors, who held from five to twenty
five shares each. At one annual meeting the
minutes showed that Charles H. Fish, the
President, owning about five shares, was the
only stockholder present.
At the conclusion of the testimony Flood's,

IDAHO.
The Territorial legislature— The Gov
ernor on Polygamy. '-■'■
' Boise Cut, December ' Governor
Neil delivered J_ia massage last night before a
joint convention of both homes of the Legis
lature and a Urge audience of ladies and gen
tlemen. It is a straightforward, able docu
ment. . . In speaking of . polygamy,' the Gov
ernor said: .The evil is no longer confined,
but has spread into the adjoining Territories,
and Idaho has not escaped its blighting pres
ence, r Many persons in this Territory are
living in open, undisguised violation of the
anti-polygamy law of Congress and of tbe
laws of > Idaho | relating .to the same offense.
The law of Congress , is Inoperative, for . tbe
reason that these plural marriages are con
tracted outside the Territory, invariably in
some Utah ' temple or | Endowment House.
Consequently our Courts have no jurisdiction
under that Act. Our statute has been found
defective 'as a : means of , punishing . polyg
amies, for the . reason j that it jis necessary
under it to prove the ceremony. '.This, as be
fore ; stated, . is J;J found ; to .= be "[ impossible,
the f ceremony f being ' performed ia t • a
secret manner, ' J and ~ all -: who f witness
or j participate -p are ;f bound I- by > lhe most
dreadful oaths to reveal nothing that trans
pires. "... There is good . reason to believe that
among other ', objectionable '< features iof this
unhallowed oath is an obligation in which
each " participant j and ■- witness j assumes |to
testify falsely when called upon to give evi
dence - respecting : the ■ ceremony. Ua In . my
opinion, Idaho is in danger of becoming a
second edition of Utah, and as there is noth
ing which could affect her interests so injuri
ously as the domination of her affairs by a'
licentious ; priesthood, I i earnestly hope yon
may without delay adopt measures calculated
to suppress and effectually crush . out polyg
amy. - All who now maintain,' aad ail who
may Jiereaf ter enter into polygamous relations,'
should be dealt with severely and rigorously.
I also favor, punishing those who advise per j
sons ' to commit | thi* offente, and f all J who
preach \ the . so called doctrine. -\ The j>eo;,! c
of ;• this "S Territory .' '■■ who ' . have * not ' sur
rendered their : right /to think ? and ':. act
for \ thenMtelv en, ah who .-.■■ abhor and
BAITY HMMM B»I_M,
■ VOICMLE XII-KKSUtEB I*l.
detest the doctrine 'that' the ... practice - of
polygamy jis the only safe means of salva
tion ; | all i who '!•. not . believe Jin : sinking
woman to the level of . the beat, Lut who de
mand that her present exalted position in
society bo forever secured to h.r ; til who to
not believe in permitting the J revival in our
midst of the most indecent and: i'i-.. ing
practices of barbarous a^e.', and all who t'.o
believe iv vindicating thn la"v and in prole cl
ing and preserving , our free institutions ,
from the encroachments of those who h.ite
and defy this nation— and they 'constitute a
large majority, of f the people— all demand
that thii evil be no loEger ignored, but that
it be completely end effectually uprooted.
Conjrress should be memorialized to amend
the Act of 1802, si v to make polyg
amous cohabitation '.•' after marriage ' , in
another Territory an < Sense, . aad ... to
change the rules of . evidence so as
to make '■■■ such cohabitation proof ; of "the
offense, thus giving cur Courts jurisdiction
under that Act The statutes relating to
polygamy should be similarly amended, thus
giving to the United States and Territorial
Courts co-ordinate jurisdiction. In addition,
laws j should be • enacted providing severe
i penalties for the crime of lewd and lac. vieue
cohabitation, and that of adultery.-. These
measures should be of a general character, ho
as to reach all who commit these offenses. If
these measures are deemed insufficient to
break up the practice of polygamy.' I un
hesitatingly announce myself ca in favor of
disfranchising and disqualifying for office not
only those who practice, but all who confess
to a belief in this pernicious doctrine.
