Hj But the Hon. Dick Morris, who has
drawn pay from the city from time lrn
memorial, should think how ho would
feel himself if someone should propose
to cut off his compensatidn.
A sharp and cutting answer has been
given by China to an Impudent request
of Russia, as reported. It seems that
Ruflsla, desiring to get help from China
In the war, in a surreptitious way,
asked that Chinese troops should guard
the railway In Manchuria. To this
China replied that as Russia did not
consider China competent to guard this
road In time ot peaco, purely Russia
could not expect Ch'lna to guard It In
time of war. A flt; answer, and a sting
ing one, Russia occupies Manchuria
solely on the pretense that China Is not
able to keep peace In the country and
protect the railroad. Russian ef
frontery, therefore, certainly reached Its
height when It asked to have China do
this service for her In this war always
provided she did a3k It, which we doubt.
But It is a good story, all tho same; it
seems to be a specimen of Japaneao
humor, as the dispatch comes from
CITY AFFAIRS GOINQ WELL
To hear some of the hungry horde of
Democrats talk, one might suppose that
tho city, affairs are going to the dem
nltlon bow-wows because the Mayor
has not succeeded In his raid on tho
olllccs of the municipality. Nothing of
' tho kind is true. The employees of the
city are all at work, the heads of alf tho
departments are in their places, and
the municipal work is going forward
uninterruptedly, In tho usual excellent
Nor is there any complaint from any
citizen or taxpayer. There- Is no de
mand for anj' change, from tho public
Thero is no reason for any change.
There is simply an appetite. Certain
friends of the Mayor, political and per
sonal, think that the public should re
ward them for their friendship, and
the Mayor wants to meet their desires
In this respect. Ho wants the public to
give them employment and reward be
cause they supported him in the recent
election, and perhaps in other elections.
it is, in fact, a personal and partisan
matter wholly, and sx far as It has any
public phase, It Is against public policy;
it would turn out trained and cfllcient
men and put in novices, for no public
reason. The proposition is therefore
an evil one, so far as any public Inter
est is concerned.
There was no necessity whatever for
raising the contention that has been
raised by Mayor Morris. It was thor
oughly demonstrated last year that the
City Council is supreme in city af
fairs. When we insisted Inst year that
tho Mayor ought to have some rights,
we were shown that while as a matter
of speculation there might be something
In the idea, the fact was that such Is
not the law.
Wo were told further, that It was
right that the Council should be In con
trol, as it was the popular body, and
more likely to represent the people and
their desires than any one man could
do. The point appeared to be fully es
tablished. At any rate, that wa,s the
view that prevailed, and It was the law.
There Is no different law this year.
We think thero should be, but thero is
not. While we have the law as it Is,
we have to work under It as It reads.
The Council Is the body which repre
sents in fact the control, the backbone
of the municipal administration.
Mayor Morris has begun a wanton
and uncalled-for war on that body In
the matter of municipal appointments.
He ought not to have any reason to
hope for victory. It is quite within
the power of the Council, as it is its
duty, to defeat the Mayor In his vicious
partisan raid, which challenges tho Re
publicanism oC every one of the nine
members who compriso the majority.
The city stands in no need of any
such changes as the Mayor proposes; It
would lose by them; In some of them it
would bo disgraced. The Republican
members are emphatically In the right
In resisting this raid upon tho city, this
personal and partisan demand that
men shall be given office not for fitness
or decency, but in splto of the lack of
All' is well with tho offices as they
are. They are filled by men who are
tried and found competent. There is
no public interest that Is any way at
stake. Let well enough alone, and don't
yield to the partisan claims of those
who are merely hungry for offices to
which by any fair construction or pub
lic interest they are not entitled.
WHAT RUSSIA THINKS.
It is said that a ureat wave of en
thusiasm for the war Is sweeping over
Russia, smothering racial animosities
and uniting all In a fervent defense of
the fatherland. The sullen Poles, the
wild tribes of tho Caucasus, the dis
contented JTInns, are all forgetting their
griovances and coming forward to vol
unteer their services. It Is even said
that the Jews have forgotten tho out
rages committed upon them, and that
forty-five Jewish doctors have thrown
up their practice to go to the front.
If Russia were a country where popu
lar movements of any kind wero al
lowed, such eIdcnces of good will to
ward the Government would bo most
significant. But whon we remember
that popular sentiment is habitually
and ruthlessly repressed In that coun
try, and that the Government permits
nothing save of its own inciting, we can
easily fathom the truo meaning of such
accounts as the above from Russia.
They mean nothing more than that
Russia is making extraordinary efforts
to raiso an army of large size for ser
vice in the Orient, and that she Is
probably enforcing a ruthless and mer-y
cilesa conscription among the discon
tented peoples In the empire; this for
a double purpose, to fill up tho armies
and to rid tho local administration of
the trouble of dealing with these who
aro discontented. A hint of this is
given in tho dispatches which tells of
tho permission given "suspects" to en
list in the army a3 privates for this
service, as a means of freeing them
selves from espionage,
We note that Baron do Fersen, a
Russian, who Is on a visit to Chicago,
criticises thje country for its attitude
toward Russia. He cites Russia's ab
stention from interference in tho Boer
war as pomethlng we should be grate
ful for; but we fall to see why. Nelthor
Russia nor we had anything to do with
Again, he cites Russia's neutrality In
the war In the Philippines as something
for which we should be grateful. But
as Spain made a regular co33lon of her
undisputed sovereignty to us, wo fall
to see the occasion for gratitude to
ward Rursla, or in what way Russia
could have Interfered.
There Is a sentiment, howcvefT which
should animato us In Russia's favor,
If that were possible, and that is the
friendly tone of Russia to the Union
all through the War of the Rebellion,
and tho warm relations which havo pre
vailed between the two nations ever
But Russia's course In Manchu
ria has been distinctly antagonistic to
our interests, and her domineering has
seemed to be directed especially against
us. Her diplomacy has been fal3o and
grasping, careless of the rights of any
nation other than her own.
It lo, therefore, under tho circum
stances, quite Impossible that wo should,
however much wo would like to do It,
give support to Russia In her present
contention. Japan unmistakably stands
for open trado and progress, and Rus
sia as unmistakably for retrogression
Every one in Salt Lake City will en
thusiastically ondorso the application
made by Mr. Doremus, chairman of the
Arid Land Reclamation Fund Commis
sion, to have Salt Lake City made the
location of the proposed western head
quarters of tho irrigation work under
the National law. And the especial fit
ness of this place for such headquarters
will be Its chief recommendation.
No other place can in any way ap
proach this city for ccntrallty to tho
work in hand under the National Irriga
tion law; from no other city can the- dif
ferent projects under way be so easily,
quickly and conveniently reached In
case of need.
First of all, it Is right at home In one
of the greatest plans of all, that of the
Utah Lake Improvement. It Is closer
than any other prominent point to the
proposed reclamations in Wyoming, and
the greatest of these Is at 'the instance
of Utah people, who can furnish all data
needed, right here.
The Montana enterprises on Milk
river and on the Gallatin are easy of ac
cess from here via the direct railroad to
The Idaho projects can be got at from
here more conveniently than from any
other point, through the direct connec
tion at Pocatello.
The project on tho Truckee, In Neva
da, Is our nearest neighbor on the west,
and more quickly reached from here
than from anywhere else.
Whatever Is doing In Oregon or
Washington Is also quite within strik
ing distance from here, and communi
cation is quick and direct.
The great enterprise on the Salt
River, Arizona, will be put in close
touch with us here by the building of
the railway to Los Angeles, which is to
be completed within the year. It is al
ready In close touch with us through
community of Interests and similarity
of means of relief.
Thus. Salt Lake City is in fact central
to the whole scene of operations; It is
the natural, one might almost say the
Inevitable, place from which the practi
cal direction of all the work must come.
A glance at the map and an examina
tion of the localities, thoroughly estab
lishes this fact.
We therefore have reason to be con
vinced that when the western headquar
ters arc established, this city will be the
place where they will be, because here
Is the fittest place of all for their loca
tion, the most convenient point of any
possible, for those In practical charge of
the different enterprises, to come for
THE BHIGHAM CITY TROUBLE.
A good deal has been Kiid In the pub
lic prints about the trouble at Brigham
City, and some misconceptions about it
have been given currency. In order
that the public might have a true and
accurate account of the whole matter,
The Tribune asked Its correspondent at
Brlgham City to write a concise, Im
partial, and true account of the whole
matter from the first.
This he did, and the story appears on
the twenty-second pago of this paper.
The writer of the history and present
aspect of the trouble has no possible
object or reason to misrepresent in any
way, or to color the matter against the
church authorities of the Box Elder
stake, nor do wo believe that he has
It la a plain, unvarnished tale, and It
showa that there has been a- disposition
to carry things' with a high hand on the
part of some qf the authorities, and to
enforce in a way repugnant to modern
Ideas, the old doctrine of obedience In
temporal things. We commend a care
ful reading of the story to all who take
an Interest In the principles Involved,
which are of general, and not alone
of local, application.
Paris went wild yesterday over its
own rumors of world complications
growing out of the Russo-Japanese
war. One fake was that there was to
be an immediate mobilization of the
French and the German armies; anoth
er, that the troubles between Russia
and the United States are acute, grow
ing out of the refusal of his exequatur
to Consul Morgan at Dalny. These ru
mors greatly affected the stock market;
and the trouble is, that there is so
much tension among tho nations, and
so many points of antagonlom, that
oven tho ugliest rumor Is liable eoma
day to come suddenly truo.
GEN. DICK FOR SENATOR.
The Hon. Charles Dick Is to be the
next United States Senator from Ohio,
succeeding Senator Hanna, for both the
unexpired term which ends March 4,
1905, and for tho full term which begins
on the same date. HIo selection for tho
position is assured by. tho withdrawal
from the competition of all who might
have been formidable competitors. -
Mr. Dick was born In Akron, Ohio,
November 3, 1853, was educated In the
common schools, and is emphatically a
self-made man. He has been
prominent In business, Is a mem
ber of the Ohio bar, and was for n
long time an officer In the Ohio National
Guard. His familiarity with the mili
tia, gained in this cervice, made him
prominent in Congressional measures
for the betterment of the mllltla and
tho Guard, and his name was given to
the principal measure for this purpose.
Mr. Dick wa3 chairman for three
terms, of his county Republican com
mittee; was chairman of tho State exec
utive committee 1892-4 and 1S99-190O; in
189C he was secretary at Chicago head
quarters of the National committee;
and was secretary of the Republican
National committee. 1S97-1900. He was
closely associated with Chairman
Hanna in the preliminary canvass for
McKlnley's nomination and subsequent
campaign in 1S96.
He wao engaged In active service with
his regiment in the Spanish war, and
on its close was elected to Congress (In
1S99) for the Nineteenth Ohio district,
being now in his second term. Ills
choice for Senator la a continuation of
the great Hanna predominance, and is
in every way an appropriate one.
HERBERT SPENCER'S ADVICE TO JAPAN.
At this lime, when Japan is. so prom
inently before the world., a letter written
by Herbert Spencer twelve years ago to
a friend in Japan, with injunction
(which has bcn respected) not to publish
It till after his death, has a peculiar in
terest. The letter was written on the assump
tion, which was quite natural In 1S92,
that the Japanese were a weak race,
and were In danger of their very exist
ence from the aggressions of European
powers. But none of them, save Russia,
has shown the slightest disposition to
be aggressive toward Japan.
The reason Is obvious. Japan- has
shown a marked ability to take care of
herself. All the other nations sensed
this fact; Russia did not, and is likely
to pay dearly for the mistake.
Mr. Spencer, In pursuance of his very
natural Idea, advised Japan to keep the
white races at arm's length, citing the
case of India, where the native races are
held in subjection by the dominating
whites, as an example of what Japan
had to expect If she were not wary.
He warned Japan against allowing
foreigners to own land In Japan, and to
allow them to live In the country only In
residences on annual rentals. Ho ad
vised against allowing foreigners to gain
any point which they could make a con
venient point of approach or attack, and
especially spoke of the danger of allow
ing any foreign settlement to be estab
lished. He considered that there wa9 especial
peril in allowing foreigners to work
mines, as disputes were liable to spring
up, and the Governments of which the
mine-workers were citizens were pretty
certain to Insist that their men should
have pretty much anything they might
He advised the Japanese to retain
their coasting trade exclusively in their
own hands, which was certainly good
advice; that is what the United States
does In its coasting trade; but it Is cu
rious advice for so pronounced a free
trader as Herbert Spencer was to give.
Ho also counseled Japan to forbid
marriages between her people and for
eigners, this chiefly on biological
grounds. He held that at least In the
second generation the offspring of such
marriages are pretty sure to develop
constitutional weakness. But when a
couple wish to marry they do not stop
to think of the biological results. There
have been a number of such marriages,
with results yet to bo ascertained.
The letter shows Mr. Spencer at his
best, as an abstract reasoner, with
small power to adapt his hypotheses or
conclusions to the actual affairs of life.
And in estimating the strength and
force of the Japanese he made a woful
For, In the twelve intervening years,
Japan has made tremendous strides.
Mr. Spencer no doubt would have con
sidered Japan absurdly unequal to the
task of thrashing China; yet very soon
after that letter was wrlttenk that is
what Japan did.
His advice was directed to the point of
keeping Japan as she was; It would have
been an argument against the opening
of Japan to modern civilization, and
keeping her a hermit nation, as she was
when Commodoro Perry forced her
Japan has been recognized as entitled
to full fellowship in the family of na
tions. It would- be idle to undertake to
enforce euch restrictions as Mr. Spencer
proposed1. Foreigners going to Japan for
any purpose are subject to the laws of
Japan, and their casc3 In the event of
trouble of any sort, are triable In Ja
Whoever goes to Japan must subject
his rights and interests to tho customs
of tho country, precisely as if he went
from one Christian country to another.
There is no opportunity for any of tho
complications or encroachments that
Mr. Spencer foresaw. The quickness of
Japan to resent tho approach of Russia
to an arm's length distance, and the cer
tainly that eho will not stand to be en-
croaohed upon, show that his letter was
tho latter of a dreamer, who kept llttlo
account of tho actual affairs or relations
of the nations of tho earth.
TRADE, BUSINESS, AND FINANCE.
The week ha6 seen another encourag
ing feature for Utah; there has been an
other good snowstorm In the northern
part of tho State, and a copious rain In
the southern part. Tho latetr was espe
cially needed, and It changes the crop
and range situation there to one of
cheerfulness. It looks now as If an am
ple supply of moisture Is assured for all
purposes throughout the State.
The movements towards obtaining
Governmental aid under the National
irrigation law are in moot hopeful pro
gress. Strong committees are at work
getting things in shape In this valley for
the petition to the Government lo go on
with the Utah Lake improvement,
(which has already been Investigated
and reported upon favorably by the
Government engineers,) and that this
will be forwarded with substantial una
nimity, accompanied by sufficient sure
ty for repayment as required by lav.,
does not now admit of any serious
The Bear Lake project, the Ogdcn and
Weber River project, and tho Straw
berry Valley project, so syotematlcally
and well presented by the committee of
the Arid Land Reclamation Fund Com
mission to Secretary Hitchcock, and so
favorably commented upon by him, will
no doubt soon be ordered on the Inves
tigation and survey list, and when this
preliminary work Is done, no doubt they
will all be In the same position that the
Utah Lake project now Is.
Tho mines are keeping up magnifi
cently their enormous production, which
will doubtless this year break all former
records in total production. The outlook
is most cheerful In this great Industry.
Utah mines stand at the head of the list
for permanence of yield and steadiness
The smelters of this valley deserve the
heartiest commendation for their excel
lent administration during the recent
troubles. Nothing but the ablest and
most careful handling kept them in full
blast during, the coal troubles. They arc
handling the avalanches of ore in grand
style, and most enterprisingly they are
adding constantly to their facilities, and
are always planning additions and Im
provements to keep a little ahead of tho
expected demands upon them.
The railroad situation continues In
tho highest degree satisfactory. Tho
energetic pushing of tho Los Angeles
line goes on unabated, and the Hon. R.
C. Kerens added his good word for pro
gress during the past week, he having
made a flying visit to "the front" dur
ing the week, returning yesterday. Tho
Western Pacific, the new line from San
Francisco hither, and the Moffat road,
both continue to give good accounts of
Business in this city is on the gain;
the bank clearances of the past week,
compared with those of the correspond
ing week the past year, show a gain of
6.9 per cent. Trade 19 good, the opening
of spring being at hand, and prepara
tions accordingly are being mado for It,
The bulldlnr season is about to begin,
and every indication points lo a busy
time In thl3 line. A considerable num
ber of good and Important structures
are already in view, and more will of
course be added as the season advances.
In the country at large, Dun reports
that inclement weather alono prevenls a
definite revival of business. Several
leading branches of manufacture in
creaso their activity, and thousands of
interior buyers are placing liberal orders
at tho principal cities. There Is llttlo
friction between employers and wage
earners, and financial conditions are sat
isfactory. Bradstreet's dwells on the unfavorable
effect of tho winter weather, and the un
certainty of tho condition of winter
wheat. Midwinter conditions are a bar
to the opening, of the spring trade, which
will probably be later than usual. Tho
best week's Jobbing business this year Is
reported at leading Eastern markets.
Important failures aro more numerous
this week, some banks and Insurance
companies, the latter of Baltimore, con
Tho International Mercantile agency
reports Improvement In the steel mar
ket, a heavy railway traffic, but much
interruption In trains, caused by st6rms
and snow. Investigation shows that re

The bank clearances for the week con
tinue to show tho effect of the reaction
against excesslvo Speculation. New
York shows a decrease, compared with
the samo week last year, of 32.7 per cent;
the cities outside of New York show a
reduction of 8,3 per cent; a total for all
of 21 per cent.
The New York bank statement, Issued
yesterday, shows a considerable de
crease In loans, with an Increase In de
posits; an increaso of eight millions In
specie, and almost as much moro In re

lion Increase in United States deposits.
