! Still it must be admitted that Febru
( nry as almost allowed to go by with
out a tragedy occurring In Salt Lake.
I Having told, the smoke-makers that
they must abate their nuisance, the
Mayor, of course, feels that it Is not his
fault If they don't do it.
Port Arthur Is a great ammunition
center, for in addition to the large
amount stored there by Russia, Japan
is sending in a lot every day or two.
Some of the absent -witnesses prob
ably feel quite sure that they will not
hear that there are subpoenas out for
them, In time to attend the hearing.
But even If ladies aggravatingly con-,
tlnue to obstruct the sidewalks, there
will not of course be Included among
the clubs for women the policeman's

j a medical certificate- slating that he is
J unable to go to Washington because of
) a welt-known weakness for saying the
Evidently numerous active boys,
proud of their home city, did not pro
pose to have it said that any place had
a more industrious lot of young thieves
, than Salt Lake.
In voting down the Hartensteln ordi
nance the Republican Councllmen
merely wished to Inform the Mayor that
they had no neck they wished him to
use aa a footstool
The Russians have another real
grievance ugainst the Japs, having
found that a good position they were
marching to in Korea is already occu-
pied by the brown boys.
The- Twelfth Infantry is on the sea;
it sailed- from San Francisco yesterday
in the transport Sherman for the
Philippines, via Honolulu. We hope for
them a pleasant voyage, a service none
too arduous,, and a Joyous return.
I A measure Is pending in the House
instructing the Department of Com
merce and Labor to Investigate "the
beef trust." Another Is designed to
allow the cattle men to tell what they
think of the way they are treated in
the matter of transportation. The cat
tle men have very emphatic views on
both questions, and will not be in the
j ( least backward about expressing them
if they arc Given the chance.
I1, If the records of the Weather Bureau
hero for twenty-nino years are any
Wide ae to the sort of weather we have
(to expect this month, ive shall have ten
dear days, ten portly cloudy days, and
eleven cloudy dayp. Tho precipitation,
in rain or melted snow, will be 1.92
J Inches; the mean temperature -11 de
' prees, and the wind' will have an aver
age hourly velocity of 6.4 miles per hour
a brisk atmosphere. The month came
in more lamblike than lionlike, no ac
cording to tho old saying, the end of the
jrionth will be- stormy.
IF The Senate votes, 23 to 17. that sup
i pllen for the army and navy, when re
quired to bo taken over sea, must be
carried' in American ships. It is an
emphatically right vote, and it will
materially aid in building up trie
, trade between American ports In the
Philippines trade. The Democrats, of
course, voted against it, in pursuance
of their time-worn policy of opposition
to tho building of American ships, if i
V some of the rabid Democratic leaders
had their way, the coast trade entire
ou,d b& given over to foreign ships.
I The orders for the Third infantry, Tj
( S. A., to go to Panama havo been re
voked. It Is not easy to see why there
should be such a changeable policy on
H j this matter, unless tho sober second!
: thought should be that we may not be
. i , ready to proceed? with canal-digging for
.: jj a while yet. Secretary Shaw's position
I that he will not pay over the forty nill
t, 0 lion dollars for the French company's
IS properties until ho sees what he is
going to get. and sees that there is a
1 clear title to it, Is backed by the Cabl
M net and there will be a thorough ln
j! vestigatlon of the ownership and au-
thority to transfer. Tho troops would
bo needed to guard property and the
workmen, but until there are property
and workmen on the ground, the Bond
ing of troops there would be useless.
THE' MINES FOR FEBRUARY.
Utah's mine production for February,
In spite of its being a short month, and;
of tho frequent storms and consequent
bad roads, constitutes a fine record. The
present month, with two more .days and
probably better roads, will no doubt
show even better.
The ore and bullion settlements for
the month, in the open market,
amounted to ?1,793,500; and there was
forwarded during the month 2.021,642
pounds of copper bullion from the inde
pendent copper furnaces, which w'as
valued at $376,492, the two sources of
valuo amounting in the aggregate to
$2,C69,992, or at tho rate of over J33.000,
000 a year. At this rate, The Tribune's
estimate of 525,000,000 production from
Utah's mines tho present year will be
Tho smelters are responding grandly
to the demands that this great produc
tion are making upon them. They are
in excellent condition, and nt every
plant, save one, material enlargements
are in progress, and in all the active
producers there Is still a little reserve
of capacity which could be called upon
In splto of all this, however, by rea
son of continuing contracts, there was a
considerable quantity of ore sent out of
the State. The amount of this is esti
mated at six thpusand tons, and the
value of this should really be added to
the figures above given.
But the Stock Exchange falls to tally
wlth this fine record of the mines, and
there was during the month a marked
dullness in trading. There were over
half a million shares of stock sold, and
the average price was almost exactly
twenty-five centR per share. The fig
ures are 564,369 shares, sold for
511S.460.SS. This, in contrast with tho
great record of the mines, shows an as
tonishing lethargy; and when con
trasted with the sales of February last
year, which aggregated 995,197 shares,
for $666,657.37, shows an alarming deca
dence. The open dividends of the month of
February amounted to 5262,500, besides
the largo sums realized privately, not
in public postings. The payers of the
sum named were the Daly West,
$117,000; the Silver King, $100,000; the
Grand Central, $25,000; the Annie
Laurie, $12,500; tho Sacramento, $5000.
These are all from the monthly divi
dend payers. The quarterly payers will
no doubt appear in the dividend column
It appears from the dispatches that
Port Arthur i6 exceedingly short of sup
plies. That indicates that the place is
Invested by the Japanese, and that the
railroad is not running trains there any
more. This news, then, must either be
a mere surmise, or an important event
of the war has not before been men
tioned. Which is the true explanation,
time alone can tell. The Russians arc
said to have abolished their censorship
of the news, and so wo ought to have
had the news of the investment of Port
Arthur from them. The Japanese
make no secret of their suppression of
the news, and of their intention to keep
suppressing it. But there is practically
littles difference between the Russian
system of not hearing any news and
that of the Japanese of not letting any
The bill to allow Alaska a Delegate in
the House has been reported favorably
in the Senate. It-is to be hoped that it
covers something more than merely
thla point. There should be legislation
for Alaska In a broad and generous
spirit, which would give the people who
reside there the requisite protection
and encouragement of the laws. It has
been a much-neglected portion of the
republic's possessions, and given over
to the dominance of monopolies in fish
ing, in trading, in transportation, and
In town building. It is high time a
change were made, and the region
thrown open to a permanent use, by the
American people, on fair and equal
Gen. Dick was chosen yesterday to be
United States Senator from Ohio, to
succeed Senator Hanna. His vote -was
27 in the Senate to 4 for Clarke, and In
the House 87 to Clarke's 21. It might
as well have been made unanimous.
Gon. Dick is a man of National promi
nence, who will have to be reckoned
with in general politics, and who
-will have a voice in public affairs that
must be listened to. His record Is ad
mirable, his ability high, and he was a
3taunch friend and supporter of his
illustrious predecessor. Ohio will be
well served In his election.
It seems that Port Arthur has been
bombarded again; also, that it hasn't.
It ia one of the features of this war
that about as Boon as anything is said;
a flood of denials, most of them official,
are sprung upon a rattled world. The
news of the day as to the course of thi3
war Is remarkable In that it Isn't news.
Tho claim 1b made, and- comes pretty
straight from Now Mexico, that the
President desires to have Arizona and
New Mexico consolidated! into one, and
admitted thus as a State. This prospect
is disadvantageous, not only to the two
commonweals, but to the entire West,
and should not be entertained for a mo
ment. They are naturally separated,
and1 ought to be kept bo. The area of
the proposed State, the two Territories
combined, would) be 235,600 tKjuaro mlle-a,
almost an great as that of Texas, and
greater than all the New Epgland
States, New York, Pennsylvania, New
Jersey, Delaware, Maryland and. Vir
ginia combined. There is no propriety
whatever In massing area, like this In
on State, andi wo hope that the people
of Arizona and1 New' Mexico will refuse
their assent to It. The only possiblo
thing that can be paid In favor of the
consolidation is that the so-called "Ari
zona strip" could then be nparcd to
Utah, whore It belongs, without appre
ciable loss of area.
REPUBLICAN COUNCILHEN DO WELL.
The Republican Councilman dldi well
on Monday night, In defeating the ordi
nance by which it wns proposed to cut
the Council out from participation In
the filling of the appointive municipal
ofilccs. That ordinance provided that
the Mayor ehould create vacancies at
his pleasure, and fill them, If the
Council agreed, very well; If not his ap
pointees should do tho work of the
offices he appointed them to, and draw
the pay, without confirmation, until the
Council did confirm them.
It was rather an adroit trap, and the
proposition seemed a plausible ono till
It was examined Into. Then its true
purpose, to f?ct aside tho Council and
give the Mayor free rein, was very
plain. And) tho Council was expected
to agree to it!
The experience cannot fall to con
vince the Councllmen that they must
be on their guard against trickery"? that
the Mayor Is out for plunder, and
means to have it, by fair means or foul.
But it will bo their duty to prevent the
success of this rapacious raid, as it is
fully within their right and power to do.
Indeed, it is their duty under the law
to do so.
The way to peace and quiet Is easy.
In order to achieve freedom from con
tention, it ia only necessary for Mayor
Morris to cease his wanton and parti
san raids, and quit his efforts to over
ride the Council and tho law.
It Is idle for any ono to call on the
Council to cease contention so long as
the Mayor persists In stirring it up.
The whole matter is with Mayor Mor
ris. And If any expression Is made
known in favor of peace and harmony,
that expression Is in fact a condemna
tion of his course, and a call on him to
coase stirring up strife.
That call has been made, and he will
do well to heed It. The call does not In
any way reflect upon the Council, which
is merely in a dignified way repelling
raids upon its rights and upon the law.
TO RAISE THE SALARIES.
Porhaps responding to the complaint
that private employment secures all
the best talent, leaving the public at a
disadvantage by reason of the better
salaries paid, Senator Gallinger has
introduced a bill to increase the salaries
of tho leading public officials in Wash
ington. The argument no doubt Is that
all salaries in private and corporate
employ have materially advanced since
the salaries now paid to Government
officials were fixed.
This is no doubt true; and yet if the
other proposition is also true, that the
best talent goes to private employ and
second class only as a rule to tho pub
lic employ, the argument for a raise In
the salaries Is not so strong as It might
The truth Is that It Is hopeless for
the public to attempt to compete with
private enterprise in the payment of
salaries. The honor of the official posi
tion is expected to mako up the dif
ference between private and public pay.
And that has been the position of the
Government from the first. It will
probably continue to be its polioy.
Wo doubt if the public can offer sal
aries high enough to make any mate
rial difference with those who are after
large pay. We gave an account the
other day of the supposed losses of Mr.
Root, late Secretary of War, by his ser
vice in the Cabinet. They footed up
over four hundred thousand dollars,
net. In that connection we showed that
if this were to be fixed upon a basis of
pay or allowances,, each Cabinet officer
-would cost about $100,000 a year.
Needless to say, Senator Galllnger's
bill does not progress very far in this
direction. The pay of a Cabinet officer
Is now eight thousand dollars a year;
his bill would make it fifteen thousand,
an Increase that cuts but a small figure
on the Root basis, but -which would
probably be a welcome Increase to
many men of not large resources who
might yet be Cabinet timber.
The pay of Senators and Representa
tives la now five thousand dollars a
year; it Is proposed' to make It eight
thousand. This Is not extravagant, and
the best part of It Is that the Increase Is
expressly barred to the members of the
present Congress. In fact, the whole
bill Is made to take effect March 4,
The old "salary grab," that set the
country on fire thirty years ago, was
not odious and Indignantly objected
to so much on account of the Increase
of Congressmen's pay to seven thou
sand five hundred a year, as because of
the manner and time of doing it. The
bill making the Increase -was passed at
the final see.slon of the Congress, und
was made retroactive, allowing tho In
crease to date back nearly two years,
and this so enraged the people that a
storm of Indignation compelled the re
peal of the law which gave the "grab."
If there is to be a readjustment of the
salaries, it would seem that now In a
good time to make It. The thirty years
Intervening between the former attempt
and now have mado many changes, and
the cost and style of living havo much
changed In the meantime. The jKst
poning of the increase until the begin
ning of the new Administration and the
new Congrees will also have a material
bearing in favor of the new adjust
ment, which on the whole does not seem
to be particularly objectionable, ,
FEMININE KISSING OUT OF FAVOR.
From tho Tendon ExprcsH.
There are about four reasons for the
passing of tho kiss:
1. It has fceen proved difficult for two
persons wearing Gainsborough hats or
their modifications to kiss.
2. The long flowing veils of the mo
ment becomo a tangled mass of chlft'on
or net and the large velvet spots witn
too rough treatment easily become de
tached. 3. The complexion, unless exceeding
ly well made, Is apt to swear, and tho
powder easily rubs off, presenting a
4. The elaborate blouse and neck ruf
fles, -with the multitudinous chains, etc.,
of modern dress decorations, are easily
crushed and quickly lose their pristine
It is therefore considered bad tasto to
kiss in public, und go, since there must
be aomo way of welcoming a friend, tho
manly handshake haB come in.
