Mr. Cutler does not have any shoddy

I much for his political pretensions.
Brother Cutler Is not disturbed by any
discontent among the people, as he

those who claimed, that Vermilion was

H, 1 I made a director In the Western Pacific,
Hi' i' which is accepted as conclusive proof
j that the Gould Interest is backing thlB
i new railroad enterprise. The Tribune
has been convinced of this backing for
some time, and has so stated. The
"Western Pacific has its articles of ln
y corporation filed in California, Nevada
and Utah. It has completed Its survey
from the coast to Tooele valley, where
a straight shoot will bring It to this city.
The company has spent over three mil
lion dollar In Its preliminary work, and
that the actual building of the road Is
now to be pushed with energy seems to
NO "FATHERING" NECESSARY.
A dispatch In The Tribune yesterday
morning from Ogden told of the lively
interest felt there In the new-party
movement, and of the deeirc of many
to form an organization in that
city on kindred lines, but feared for
the future of any movement there,, "as
it would have no one to father It."
Those who agree with the purpose of
the new departure should at once act.
The spontaneous remonstrance of the
American pcoplo against political
wrongo Is Instinctive.- and has been
much the fashion since the original Dec
laration of Independence.
Such remonstrance Is due now In
Utah, because tho evil and wrong of
church dominance In politics Is flagrant,
bold, and Increasing.
If we wait till every one Is content to
strike, we shall never strike, for there
is no time when some good men might
not be hurt by the move to come out
from tho old parties on this Issue.
' There Is never a time when some good
men are not taken up by the church
leaders and put on their Republican or
their Democratic ticket: that Is the case
now. it probably always will be the case.
But the placing of those men's names
on the respective party tickets is not for
the sake of those men, much less to con
cede anything to the principle that tho
church leaders should not control in
It is primnrlly to head off Just such a
movement as has Just now been Inaugu
rated In this city. And so far It has
been successful tactics.
If we are ever to act In opposition to
this political domination of the- church,
we must some time begin; it Is Impos
sible to wait till no one can be in' the
least touched by such action.
The reluctance to act while any one
could urge danger to him from such ac
tion has hindered In the past, when ac
tion would have been Justified. But It
was deferred lest any one be hurt.
The impossibility of waiting for a
time when no one's interests will be In
the least In the way before taking the
step Is therefore manifest.
The step was consequently taken, the
church Interference being rank, the
provocation keen. The timeliness of the
movement now 1b evident from the wide
Interest It has awakened, and the en
thusiastic endorsement which it has re
The move Is vital; it is taken to resist
an encroachment which threatens the
very heart of American Institutions.
For, if a church may use Its power to
coerce Its members into a given course
of political action, then It Is evident that
for those persons liberty Is dead.
When a church uses Its chief officials
to act In political afTalrs, then the
church itself acts; when it uses its reg
ular church channels for transmitting
political directions, then the church as
a whole Is in political thralldom.
That action has been seen In precisely
this form, constantly, In Utah. A spe
cially odloup and spectacular exhibition
of It was manifested at the State Re
publican convention, when a man prac
tically unknown, and who of his own
strength could not have commanded a
dozen delegates, was given a majority
of them, a vote of two hundred and
It was a scandalous sight; It was no
toriously the result of the direct and
persistent acts of Apostle Smoot, acting
In his apostolic capacity, through
church channels, upon the bishops In
the different settlements.
So absolutely unknown was Apostle
Smoot's candidate that a number of the
delegates who voted to nominate "broth
er Cutler," thought all the while that
Manager T. R. Cutler of the sugar fac
tories was the man they were voting
for, and some went home under that im
It would have been wonderful Indeed,
If the people of American sentiments
here had been willing to He down under
It was the mont natural thing In the
world that they should rise up against
It, assert their patriotic manhood, and
determine that this ecclesiastical out
rage must stop for all time.
Many ofvthe best men in the State arc-co-operating
in this movement. Many
more will Join In, as opportunity offers.
No one needy to wait on any one else to
begjn a nucleus of strength for co-operating
In this Just cause. Start the ball
rolling everywhere In the State, and
keep the good work alive with power!
The alarm In the East aHhc alleged
over-production of gold Is hardly worth
while. The shadow of nn impending
gold production of 5-100,000,000 a year Is
what breaks them up. The Rand mines
In South Africa arc the cause of this
anxiety, and this Is especially awaken
eU by the enthusiastic prediction In
England that the production of thoso
mines, now that Chinese coolie labor In
plenty Is assured for them, will reach
tho enormous tqtal of 5120,000,000 to
5150,000,000 a year. The highest produc
tion of the Pand mines was In 189S,
when It reached 579,213,000. The first
six months of the present year the pro
duction was a little under $33,000,090; eo
that It is reasonable to expect tha't this
year's total production may run to os
high a figure as that of 1S98. After that
it will probably Increase for a v.hlle,
but we do not believe that It can ever
much exceed 5100,000,000. That figure
would probably mean a total production
for the world of about 5400,000.000 a
year, for the production of gold from
other sources Is also on the Increase.
Last year the world's output of gold
was, as near ns can be computed, 5330,
OOO.OO'O, Including in that total 501,000.000
from tho mines of the Rand. And wo
do not bellovo that tho production of
5100.0OO.C0O gold annually would bo as
much of a disturbance as of a relief to
"OTHER ARRANGEMENTS." 1
In tho notorious Interview which Mr.
Spry, chairman of the ecclcsiastico-Rc-publlcan
management gave to the Her
ald,, thore was more "meat" besides tho
declaration that they would use Mor
mon Democrats for the election of Mr.
Cutler to be Governor.
His words on this point wore, "Whore
they get one of the old Liberals away
from us hero In town, we will get two
Mormon Democrats from them In the
As demonstrated In these columns
yesterday, tho ecclesiastical power can
operate In town quite as well as In the
country, In tho Mormon sections. No
doubt It will get In Its work every
where, without regard to any such di
visions as "country" and "town."
But, pursuing his parable further, Mr.
Spry announced that falling In tho pur
poso thus striven for, "we will have to
make other arrangements."
What other arrangements?
Undoubtedly, arrangements with the
church headquarters to order the trans
fer of votes of Mormon Democrats to
the Cutler support.
That is his programme.
It is not a programme that has. to bo
Inferred, or guessed' at; It Is a pro
gramme that he himself specifically
Here Is what he said: "Where they
get one of the old Liberals, away from
us here In town, wc will get two Mor
mon Democrats from them In the coun
try." That Is definite enough, surely.
A pleasant prospect. Isn't It?
Mr. Spry's declaration Is a plain pro
clamation that the Cutler ticket is the
church ticket, and that the church
means to detach enough votes from
the opposition party to assure his elec
tion, no matter what may be done by
The Issue Is thus clearly defined. The
church Is In politics, using this year tho
Republican party for Its purposes, as
It used the Democratic party for Its
purposes last year.
This gage of battle the patriotic
American sentiment of Utah, has taken
up, has issued its decloratlon of prin
ciples, and will form Its party on the
lines aa declared.
These political reformers assail no
religion, attack no church, Interfere
In no way with any one's church pref
erences or affiliation.
They ask but one thing, that every
church keep Its hands off the politics
of the State, and leave the people free
to net In politics, according to their
own opinion, as free and Independent
Americans, without giving account to
nny person or set of persons for those
opinions or that political action, be the
power which challenges that freedom
cne set of churchmen or another.
If this desirable state of affairs ex
isted, there would be no need of the
new party, nor would Mr. Spry or any
other man dare to make the declara
tion that the voters of one party are
transferable to another at will, to carry
out church plans and obligations.
That transfer at church dictation Is
what Mr. Spry meant when he an
nounced that they would make "other
It Is a scandalous and shameful thing
that any man could claim the power to
make the transfer which Mr. Spry pro
claims will be made In this election.
It will be tho business of the now
party to see that such political corrup
tion, such fnlth-brcaklng demoraliza
tion shall .from henceforth cease In this
Magistrate Pool of New York, who is
reported to have ruld that " a man
cannot be disorderly in a saloon," and
to have discharged two men who were
arraigned before him on a charge of
fighting in a saloon, is evidently away
off. That ruling would make a s.tloon
a place outside of the law, a no-man's
ground, where crime would stalk un
checked. In a way. by withdrawing
the protection of the law for peace and
order from saloons, the ruling would
make them public nuisances, to be
abated as such; but In that view they
should not be licensed, and the munici
pality should treat them as outside of
the law. But that Is not the practice,
and never has been. Magistrate Pool
