J Now that he is in the Congressional

j J Chairman Spry will probably vote

' is not at all likely that he will be or-

; Mr. Moylc must see that no Gcntilo

ler for the Governorship.
f Gentile Republicans who are not go-

Ij J The expected' wheat-bull operators'
. I cry of frost and ruin to tho wheat in
' i.J1 Canada's Northwest Territory has
I j come. It made the expected uproar In
j , jjj the wheat-pit, also, when it came. But
jj 1 the whole thing was so obviously a
' (, j put-up Job that It is" impossible that
i any one could be much fooled by the
i ' i I report and the uproar. It looks very
, il 'U much as If the tactics of the cotton
II ! speculators last year were to be re-
i ' 1 . peated this year on wheat. In which
X a case, it is a satisfaction to recall that
)ji the cotton ring "went bust."
H j1 j ' jj' The Indications are that the Japanese
,1 ( will force another great battlo at Tie
y 1 , jj. Pays, where the Russians appear to bo
f'Jjji massing their forces. It is a stronger
H' j,,, I defensive position than Kuropatkln had
Hi 1 j at Llao Yang, and the Japanese will
H: i , . if have a longer line of communication
Hj j ; ' f and supplies to depend upon and guard
than they had at the former battle. At
'h; Ji the same time, the Russians will be
1 Ji 'j' more depressed, and In greater fear of
, I I tne Invincible pluck, persistence and
I aklll of the Japanese than they were
j before, and the Japanese will have
greater numbers than ever, for they are
r being constantly and rapidly reinforced.
t . 1
The Russians are also being reinforced,
but It Is not likely that their losses can
be made good as rapidly as can the
Japanese losses', and1 then the morale
of a defeated army Is always- low; It
takes some time to recuperate, to
contxjlidatc, reorganize and work up the
stamina of the men to the point where
It was before the disaster. It Is prob
able that the Japanese will win even
a moro decided victory at Tie Pass than
they did at Llao Yang.
IT IS NOT THE SAME BRAND.
It has been argued in support of the
Smoot domination In Utah politics, that
'the like dominion is seen by party lead
ers in other States; the leaderships of
Senator Hanna in Ohio, Senator Quay
in Pennsylvania, and Senator Piatt in
New York, being cited as examples of
But right there la the exact reversal
of the Smoot dominance. The control
of tho Senators named wao notoriously
a personal control; it was not exercised
exclusively through political chan
nels; It did not claim any "thus
says the Lord" intimidation, nor appeal
to the religious fealty and pledge of
obedience to church superiors to wblp
the rank and file Into line.
It did not arrogate to Itself the claim
that as spokesmen of the Almighty those
leaders in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New
York had the right to rule, to give out
to the people the word of God that they
were bound to obey, on peril of their
It did not rest upon a foundation of
Infallible priestly authority on the one
hand and Implicit obedience of the peo
ple on the other, with power to enforce
this obedience through so many ave
nues of disaster in case of refusal, that
there war absolutely no escape on the
part of those who were- chosen and
constrained to obey.
In the Slates named, the ones refusing
to support the leaders named were
merely subject to political penalties at
the most. They were not subject to
ruin In this world and damnation in the
next, besides laying themselves open to
the charge of apostacy and to a social
ostracism and business throttling that
not one In a thousand could bear up un
der. Here is the difference between the
methods of bosslsm; here Is where the
church boss is so much the more odious
than the mere political boss; here Is
where the dividing line comes broad
and deep, across which it Is impossible
for free patriotic Americans to follow
the apostolic power and dictation. Here.
In short, is the lino of demarkatlon be
tween eccleslastlclsm In politics nnd
politicians In politics. And on this line
we take our stand.
THE VICTORY IN MAINE.
The Republican victory in Maine on
Monday is wholly satisfactory. It
reaches the decisive plurality of thirty
thousand. That Is good enough, espe
cially in view of the fact that the Re
publicans leaders stated In advance that
a plurality of fifteen to twenty thousand
was all that they counted on. A figure
double their conservative estimate sure
ly marks nothing less than a memorable
and brilliant success.
The preliminary results In Maine at
the September elections In the last two
Presidential years have been phenomen
ally large for the Republicans. The
Maine men could not be got to take any
stock In Bryan or his theories. They op
posed him strongly, and many Demo
crats joined the Republicans in hitting
him with the stuffed club of their bal
lots. Thus, In 1896 the Republican plu
rality In Maine at the September elec
tion was 48,377; at the same election In
1000 their plurality was 34,003. But It
was confessed that at both of these elec
tions tho Democratic vote was largely
in evidence In support of the Republi
can ticket. .
Prior to the Presidential year of 1896,
the votes were more normal. In 1880,
the fuslonlsts carried the State by a
plurality of 1S9, giving the fusion candi
date for Governor 73,786 votes to 73,597
for the Republican candidate. In 1&8-1
the Republican plurality was 19,851, In
1888 It was 20,069, In 1892 "it was 12,531,
and a forerunner of the disastrous
triumph of Cleveland In the country at
Taking the seven State elections In
Maine In the last Presidential years
(counting the present year's plurality at
30,000), the average Republican plurality
has been 23,620. A plurality this year
so greatly in excess of expectation and,
of that average, when the anti-Bryan
landslide Is counted too, must be con
sidered decisive, not only in Maine it
Elf, but counting with It the great and
unexpected majority In Vermont, it
must bo conceded that the figures are
indicative of the staunch hold that the
Republican party has upon the hearts
of the people at large, and to foreshad
ow a sweeping triumph for President
Roosevelt on the eighth day of Novem
Another train robbery is reported in
the wild and woolly East. In tho old
and thickly settled State of Iowa,
where the telegraph Is everywhere and
railroads are the moBt prevalent and
prominent scenic atteractlon, a train on
a great railway system, Is held up and
robbed. It is not known whether milk
maids or corn-huskers did the Job, but
It was done, and another evidence of
the innate depravity of the stolid in
habitants of the effete East Is sup-piled.
It is strange that so much pother
should be made about the Russian
ship, Lna, which sought shelter in San
Francisco harbor. She needs much re
pairing, it seems, and It is impossible
for this to be done within the time
limit fixed by neutrality regulations.
She will therefore have to be disman
tled and hold till the closo of the war,
precisely as though she were in the
port of Shanghai, Klau Chau, or Sai
gon. There Is no room for controversy,
and little room for talk; the duty Is
plain, and our Government will per
form It without any demund or insist
ence from Japan.
TONIGHT'S PATRIOTIC RALLY.
Those here who oppose apostolic
domination in politics will havo their

The responses to tho movement which

considering all the circumstances.
The meeting is certain to bo large,

THE STATE FRUIT EXHIBIT.
"We ore glad to note that the State
Board of Horticulture has collected for
public exhibition a fine display of Utah
fruit, showing what can be raised here,
and the perfection to which It develops.
But we do not see why It broke off the
connection the previous exhibit,
and took the display up to the Taber
The Real Estate Association, with
commendable public spirit, col
lected a preliminary exhibit,
and had it on view during
the passage westward of the great
crowds of Knights Templars. It was a
successful exhibit, too, and called forth
much admiration and praise from tho
Knights and those who were with them.
The Real Estate Association has rooms
in tho center of the business district,
where It would be most convenient for
all the public, home as well as tourist,
to see the State Board's exhibit.
It looks to us as though It would have
been better for the purpose of showing
the exhibit to the greatest number of
persons, and to those It should do the
most good to show It to, If the exhibit
had been placed In the rooms of the
Real Estate Association. And placing
it there would also have been a deserved
recognition of the enterprise of the
realty men in getting up the prelim
inary exhibit to help the State In tho
good graces of the Knights Templars
Possibly It is not yet too late to make
the change; If possible, It should be
made, for the real estate men are In
fact entitled to this much of recognition.
A HYPOCRITICAL COMPLAINT.
Russia is exceedingly fertile in im
agining things about China. Its latest
nightmare Is that China may step In
at the invitation of Japan and adminis
ter the civil affairs of Manchuria, in the
districts from which the Russians have
been driven. But even If this la so,
why should Russia object to It? Rus
sia herself pretended more than a year
ago that she would turn over the whole
of Manchuria to China, whose right of
governance there has never been given
up, nor in principle denied. But Rus
sia is afraid that this Chinese adminis
tration will help tho Japanese, and al
low their whole force to be utilized
against the Russians Instead of being
held to guard UneB of supplies.
Well, why not? That Is what Russia
compelled the Chinese to do for her,
and what she Is still compelling thein to
do In tho part of Manchuria yet held
by the Czar's forces. What Is the mat
ter with the Chinamen doing as much
for the Japanese as they do for the
Russians? Besides, the Russians from
the first have asserted and practiced a
right of use of Chinese ports that is ut
terly inconsistent with neutrality. Tho
powers would be silly to take any notice
of Russia's protest against the Imag
ined help the Chinese may give to
The fact Is, that China has no rights
is this war game that Russia respects;
and It comes with a poor grace for Rus
sian officials to make an outcry at this
late day about the part they Imagine
the Chinamen may play against them
in this war.
Can It be possible that In this year
of abundance the tithing In kind Is
running short? Ono might think so
from this editorial confession In last
night's church organ: "Human cuttle
fishes, like their brethren of the briny
deep, think they can hide themselves
In the contents of their own inksacks,
when hunger compels them to seek
something to prey upon." It 'is also
a curiosity In composition, as Indicat
ing a belief that there are the alleged
varlotles of "cuttlefishes," that both
are able to think, It's different with
the author of the quotation given,
and that both have "their own Ink
sacks." This "lnksack" must bo a val
uable curiosity; the discoverer of it
could no doubt make bettor wages by
traveling with and exhibiting It In
dime museums than he can In writing

Guatemala, brings news. "He denies
