Congress from Utah, were George Q.
Cannon and Allen G, Campbell.
Cannon received a large majority of
the votes cast, but his opponent en
tered the protest that he is a polyga

tion, the Territorial governor found
the charges true ; and certificate of
election has been issued to Camp
bell. This kind of argument will
soon erase from the fair fame of our
country the foulest stain that has
ever disgraced civilization.
lie denies that the Chinese govern

prohibiting their importation in the

The Caldwell I tot Jan. 18, comes
out with a very interesting descrip

village, and pictwres for it a most
prosperous future. The population
has more than doubled in the hist

cnt'tling her to the rank of a city of
the third class. The business inter

more rapidly than the population,

Mr. W. N. Hubbell has, through
an 'agent, found a practical and di
rect route to the Pan Handle, and
we understand,, will make a vigorous
effort to-secure the trade of that re
gion. Mi Hitbbcll has already made
two shipments to the Pan Handle
and knows the value of the cattle
trade. He is doing this at his own
expense, and other merchants of
Caldwell have no reason to com
plain if he gets the bulk of the trade.
Another point in his favor is that he
is better advertised in the Pan Han
dle than the local stores are.
After the nine 1'onca chiefs had
declared thatthev were satisfied and
anxious to remain in the Teiritorv,
the Poston Commission was appoint
ed to visit the reseivation, and, if
possible-,. convince them that "if they
were satisfied they ought not (o be."
The. commissioners visited the Indi
ans at their homes and found bv dil
igent inquiry that the Indians were
even better satisfied than the chief's
had represented, and that force only
could induce them to move. Now
the people all over the count ry are
inclined to laugh at Tibballs iv Co.,
and there is a strong tendency to
regard their scheme as a near rela
tive of the Oklahoma fraud.
John T. Swift, one of the commis
sioners appointed to negotiate a
treaty with China, has returned, and
in an interview said that the treaty
contains a clause reserving to (he
United States the right to terminate
at any time the residence of any
Chinese laborers in this country. If
was also understood that Chinamen
cannot become citizens of this coun
try, and that naturalization already
accomplished shall bo null and void.
Some time during the early part
of the month, the people of Medicine
Lodge were surprised by the report
that one cf their teachers had com
mitted an outrage on a little girl un
der his instruction. Without seek
ing further evidence they went to the
school house, put a rope around his
neck and started with the evident
intention of lvnchintr him. He was
rescued by the authorities, tried and
fined $o00. and sentenced to three
months in the coun'y jail. His coun
sel appealed and the case will come
up in the District court. The Lodge
papers, from which we condense
these facts, regard the whole pro
ceeding as a disgrace to the town,
and deeply deplore the tendency of
the people to resort to mob violence.
Henry Pergh, the mono-maniac
who has spent a life time trying to
convince the world that a human
creature is worthy of less respect
than a hog, now advertises his moral
depravity by calling vociferously for
the whipping post and the bastinado.
In a recent lelh r to the New York
Herald he uses the following lan
guage: "1 would set up whipping
posts everywhere to scourge the mi
nor offenders. And to make sure
that the lash would be put on feel
ingly, so that politics could not
creep in to help the offender, 1 would
offer a prize or reward for a steam
machine that would have no mercy
and could not be bribed.
We should have the bastinado hero.
It is a charming style of whipping
and makes the offender cry out lust
ily that he will not do so any more."
This old fanatic has explored the
semi ba. ha rous ecu n tries of Asia to
find some brutal method of punish
ment to introduce into this the most
enlightened and liberal country on
earth, and while covering the pig
with maudlin caresses, seeks to do
grade the country he disgraces by
lowering its morals to the very
depths of Oriental barbarism. It
is right to protect the lower animals
from maltreatment, but there is no
excuse for the man who becomes a
brute in doing so. The American
people are much inclined to sympa
thize with any man who tries to lift
the falhn or protect even the lowest
of the animal kingdom, but we mis
take the temper of our countrymen
if they tolerate long the blatant dem
agogue who was either born a brute
or lias become such by association.
