The Archbishop of Canterbury has
enjoyed the American sensation of be
Hj ing in a railway wreck, and can go
home with his cup filled to the brim.
It is excellent ( that he was not hurt,
though, and that he gets this experl
enco withou't harm to himself or scri
ous Injury to others.
An encouraging forecast is made by
a director of the United States Steel
corporation, who, in refuting- the
fl Democratic "knockers'" on our round
prosperity, says that business 1b good
and there will be no cut in otecl, adding.
"All our plants will be running at full
capacity in a month or two, and by that
time the demand for steel of all kindo
will be greater than at any time during
fl the past year."
The Japanese appear to be moving
against Kuropatkin asaln, much no
doubt to his surprise. This indicates
that the Japanese were by no means
Hj as severely handled as the Russian ac
counts assumed, in the battle of Llao
Yang. The Japs have been strongly rc
inforced, too, probably more strongly
than has Kuropatkin, It is commend
able enterprise and energy on the part
of the little brown men to push the
campaign In this manner, and It is to
be hoped that they may have better
success in bagging the Russinn army
tiiip time than they had at Llao Yang.
IT HAS DONE GOOD ALREADY.
The American party is already rcap
i lng Its victories: one nt least of theae
being won even before Its birth. There
i has hitherto been a disposition to sc
, vcrely "Hush! HushJ" down an objoc
1 tion to a candidate for ofTlcc in Utah
! based on the allegation that he is ,'n
It has been recognized, of course,
since B. II. Roberts was denied the
seat In the House of Representatives to
which he was elected, and "peached"
on a number of tiro polygamist post
masters in Utah, thus causing their
removal, that polygamous persons must
not be pushed for Federal positions.
John C. Graham of Provo got a dose of
this on account of Roberts's exposing
him, that has made him bitter and caii
tunkerous ever since.
But it has been considered here that
the polygamist bar ought not to be in
terposed in local offices, and those who
urged that it ought to be, were not fuli
fellowshiped in the political parties, be
ing considered ns disturbers and mar
plots. The sentiment to sustain the
church prestige and control has been
so strong as to frown down the objec
tion to polygamists as officers.
But lo! on the revolt of American '
sentiment, the antl-polygamist idea has
taken Immediate and peremptory ef
fect. When David Cannon, polygamist,
was nominated for Presidential elector,
his withdrawal was secured almost as
soon as, his nomination was generally
known. This was a direct tribute to
the newly-awakened American .senti
ment. Under the old feeling and the
indifference which It engendered on this
question, Mr. Cannon would undoubt
edly have remained on the ticket with
out objection, Just as in Wyoming a
polygamist persists In remaining on
the Republican electoral ticket.
The same sentiment which forced
Cannon off the ticket, led to the forma
tion of the American party soon after
wards. Another victory this time a double
one was scored by the American sen
timent on the Salt Lake Republican
county convention which has just end
ed. Mr. Blttner was defeated in his as
pirations on a polygamy allegation,
and Mr. Rldcoufs aspirations for a
Senatorial nomination were swamped
on the same rock.
It Is a glorious sign of political rea
wakening to have this American senti
ment smash the slate of the Smooties
and Inject into the veins of the Repub
lican delegates some stalwart, loyal
sentiment. The ostracism of polyga
mists for public position Is just, it is an
offense to have these violators of the
law paraded in public station.
The American party is born of pre
cisely the sentiment that is yielded to
In those cases cited. It has done the
people conspicuous service, in thus
awakening the consciences of the Re
publican delegates. It will do the
whole State equally good service in the
further maintenance of the law and in
upholding the Constitutional principle
so shamelessly violated by the Smoot
Ites, that forbids the interference by
the church in affairs of State and In
the public schools.
A BELATED REPENTANCE.
The News last evening formally an
nounced that it "is not taking any
side In the contest between the gen
uine political parties In this State or
in the Nation, being independent in
such matters." It will not urge tho
claims of candidates for public sup
port, either. This is extremely un
kind, after such strong boosting as it
gave' to the Smoot campaign, allow
ing the apostle to use Its columns
freely In the furtherance of his cam
paign to fix the church brand on the
Republican party. ,
He was able to, do so by. the active
use and persistent help of the church
agencies and organization, Including
the church organ. For that organ
now to desert the work ft so far
pushed along is inconceivable. Its
denial an,d explanation now are no
doubt the usual deceit and sham, the'
whole matter for election day being
probably already fixed.
The News's pretense of impartiality,
and that it keeps Its hands off because
its interference might be misconstrued,
comes too late to deceive any one,
and was preceded by such plain signs
of its use for Apostle Smoot's politi
cal plans, that it is Impossible to
credit its g6od faith. '
We notice, by the way, that It took
wholly to itself the condemnation we
visited upon "criminal and guttersnipe
Journalists," a surprise as, gratifying
as it wa3 unexpected. We had no
idea that we were going to get that
kind of a "rise" out of the News.
Tho death of Chief Joseph, the great
war chief of the Nez Perces, removes
from earth one of the "very greatest of
the Indian race. Hio stirring fight with
Howard and other Generals of the
United States army, comprised one of
the most remarkable campaigns re
corded in history. Passing literally
"through tho enemy's country" for
hundreds of miles, he and his little band
made a fight that lias seldom been
equaled, and was never surpassed. It
reminds one, now that we have the ac
counts of the war In South Africa, of
some of the Boer campaigns, and it was
fully as creditable to tho Indians'
leader as any of the Boer campaigns
to the leader of It. Besides being a great
military genius, Chief Joseph was also
a man of high mental gifts, a man of
Integrity and feeling. He was an old
man when he died, and had done noth-
ing especially noteworthy since his
great campaign, being helpless and
broken in spirit.
THE LEGISLATIVE NOMINATIONS.
The Republican county convention
finished its work yootcrday by nom
inating three candidates for the Senate
and ten for the House of Representa
tives. The same "cave of gloom" en
veloped the delegates as on tho firsl
There was a distinctly hopeful sign
when the nominations for the Senate
were up. The Smootites were in dis
order. They saw that they had
"hogged" things the day before, tak
ing for the Mormons ail tho offices
that had any significance or that gave
employment, and consequently some
thing had to be done.
They had on their slate some Impos
sible names and the Gentiles were rest
ive. Concessions clearly were in or
der. And they were made. The three
nominees for Senators are good "bail,"
They wore put on tho ticket as a con
cession lo the Gentiles, and it was good
to see the alacrity with which the
church agents submitted to the Inev
itable and gave up what they couldn't
But when It came to the candidates
for Representatives, the Smootites
braced up. They had made all the
concessions they intended to make, and
would have no more fooling. They
had it all their own way, too. They
put through the slated ten without a
break or a scratch. It was a complete
triumph for the apostolic dominance,
and demonstrated that the church Is
working full time and with its accus
. But the smash of tho slate on the
Senatorships was worth the while; it
showed that the American leaven Is
working elsewhere also, as well as in
tho Amerlcon party.
A SIGNIFICANT DECLARATION.
The Republican county convention in
this city on Thursday adopted the fol
S That we emphatically declare our op
position to any union of church and state,
and to the Jnterfcrenco of any church
either directly or Indirectly In political af
fairs, or In the control or management oi
our free public schools.
That Is good American doctrine, and
must be kept in mind by every true and'
But platforms are declarations of the
position of a party on issues that are
before tho people: they deal with live
subjects, and not with questions that are
irrelevant to the time or merely aca
demic In their nature. A matter to be
dealt with In a political platform Is
obliged to have some practical bearing
on the campaign which it stands for.
It is Inevitable that those who adopted
that plank, considered that there was
need of it. It follows, most assuredly,
that tho plank means to declare a pro
test against an abuse the abuse which
But to admit that there arc condi
tions existing here which call for such
a declaration as is made by the Repub
licans, is to confess the whole case;
while to deny these conditions, is to
brand the plank as spurious and uncalled-for.
It is a plain case that American sen
timent Is getting in Its work; and that
no matter how much there may be of
denials of church interference In politics
and in the schools, all know in their
hearts that there Is such Interference,
and tho fact will crop out In spite of
all efforts to cover It up.
It is evident that the drafting of
troops for service in tho far East is not
popular in Russia. There are popular
revolts, and as many as possible sub
ject to the call to the colors get away
and hide in districts upon which the call
has not yet come. Unquestionably,
there is afloat among the Russians
many fearful stories about the fight
ing qualities of the Japanese, and the
enemy is now as much feared as he was j
once despised. This Is the inevitable '
result of the Russian policy of suppress- ,
Ing the news and the facts. When
the people cannot get the truth, they j
conjure up chimeras of the most fearful 1
type, and proceed diligently to work up
a frightful scare about them.
The church organ thinks the Ameri
can party represents "the gospel of
hate." So. says the culprit when ar
rajgned before the bar of Justice, of
ills prosecutors. The American party
may be hated by the scheming ecclesi
asts and their tools, but It hates no
one; its office Is beneficent, kindly, and
healing. It asks only that church
leaders keep their hands out of politics
and off from the schools. If that Is
"the gospel of hate," make the most
