CHARLES W. FAIRBANKS.
About tho biggest Salt Lake rally of
tho season -will bo thp one of the Amcrj
can party at the polls.
Chairman Spry will send out two
classes of speakers, tho?e who talk out
loud and thoso who whisper.
Brother Moyle still thinks Brother
fl Cutler" Is a good man a good man fo
keep in the clothing business. ,
Apostle Smoot Is expected to do con
slderablo. campaign speaking In Salt
Lake during conference tlpic.
Brother Cutler spoke in Rich county
yesterday, but probably could not do
much Injury to his cause up there,
Has Apostle Srnoqt a good memory fpj
faces, or will he bp unable to remember
Mr. Sutherland when the Legislature
Do not believe anybody who tells you
that he is a secret -Democratic worker,
unless he is wearing a pair of the Peery
noiseless gum- shoes.
Among tliose who seem to be in 'harr
' mony with the Idea of making the
Democratic campaign a quiet one, is
K' the Hon. 'Quit Nebekcr.
Judge King's reniarks in Cache county
are to the efTect that he American
party stands for what is right, and that
no true Dc-mqcrat can support It.
In return for the meat furnished at
the Democratic barbecue yesterday,
many a voter will later on give thp
Democratic candidates a cold shoulder.
Brother Cutler doesn't object to the
coming of cold weather just as he is
ptarting qn his campaign tour, as It will
cause a brisk demand for woolen goods.
Doubtless, after listening to Judge
Powers, Southern Utah voters will de
Hj cldo that it would not be, right to. send
! so good a speaker away from the State.
Win Brother Cutler modestly say
i while on tho etump with 'Gov. Wells,
that ho was nominated -without lm
i proper aid and solely because of his
, Evidently, Mr. Peery's statement
that th'o Utah Democrats would- con
I duct a. quiet campaign was made after
; he had heard that the National com
i mittec had no money for. Utah.
It Is a grotesque; application of the
l rule which allows foreign attaches Im
; munity from arrest, to sec International
comity pleaded in extenuation of a. vi
olatlon of the ordinance in a city
against the too fast, driving of an autp-
mobile. The reason for the ordinance la
that this fast driving Is a peril to the in
t habitants. That peril Is not In thp least
lessened by the fact that the iolalpr is
I a foreign attache. The felipw who
' would plead exemption in suph a case Is
a scrub. The law of nations which he
urges In his own behalf was made by
and for gentlemen. iHls conduct -should
be the cause of a warning to the British
embassy that tho person Is not welcome
In this country, which warning, under
another clause of international law',' Is
I aufliclent to pause his dismissal.
It Is not easy to follow the reasoning
H of' Mr. Melton Prior, the British news-
1 paper cprrcspondc-nt, in his prodidtlon
I of a terrible war, that will involve, the
Hl European nations, growins ot of the
conflict between Russia and Japan.
Hl From the account of his talk, it appears
that he is of the opinion t,hat this most
Hl awful war In" the worldks history is
about to come on because Japan did riot
allow him and other members of the
news gatherers' body to go to tho front
and see the lighting. The effect predict-
HJ ed Is so far beyond the trivial cause qf
it, that one must wonder at the logic of
chagrin which si;eB such results." Mr.
Prior will no doubt feet better when he
gets to London and sees that the world
Is wagging along about as usual, and
that nobody Is losing any sleep over the
wur in the Far East.
THEY ARE NOT GOOD MORMONS.
Wrt read that at the Bingham county
Democratic convention, held at Idaho
Falls on Monday, the Mormon dele
gates nil ieft the convention on the
adoption of the report of the committee
on resolutions. The special cause qf
offense was the indorsement of the Na
tional and State pjatfpnns of their par
ty, carried in that report, the Mormon?
objecting to the National platform
Wo demand tho extermination of polyg
amy within the Jurisdiction of tho United
States, and tho complotc separation of
church and State In political affairs.
And to the declaration of the State
convention, which rends:
TVo demand the extermination of polyg
amy and unlawful cohabitation within tho
borders of Idaho, and thp complete sepa
ration of church and Hlato In political af
fairs. "VVo plcdgo'tho Democratic party
to enact such legislation as will eventu
ally suppress this evil.
Now, what Is thero In either of these
declarations that a Mormon should ob
Jcpt to? Is It not a fact that the Mor
mons emphatically deny that there is
any more polygamy, and that they
agfrce that unlawful cohabitation must
go? Is It pot true, further, that they
deny not only the interference of the
church in pontics, but all Intent, desire,
or will to interfere; deny l?i fact that
the church ever has Interfered In poll
tics? This being all true, the Mormons
denying for their church every point In
the demand made in those platforms
why should the Mormons object to thp
declarations? Why should they leavp
a convention merely because that con
vention reafllrms declarations to which
they have given assent?
Dees a people take offense at the de
nunciation of propositions which It does
not hold or back? Is a man offended
by a declaration of opposition to a thing
he Is not doing and does not intend tp
do? Of course not.
How, thep, account for the action of
those Bingham county Mormons?
There Is only onp way to do It; and
tljat is, that they know the denials of
these things made by the Mormons are
shams; that they are mpant to deceive;
that they do, and Intend to keep doing,
the things that are denjed, In spite of
tlje denials and prptestatlpns that they
The case- Is so absolutely plain ..that
it Is beyond argument. Actions speak
louder than words. If the Bingham
county Mormons mean anything at all
by their acts, they mean to say that
the church Is In politics and that they
sustain It therein; that polygamy shall
not cease, and that unlawful cohabi
tation muaf continue.
It Is plain, therefore, that they are
making V hjgh bid for the Legislature
to again re-enact the test oath as a
prerequisite for voting; for It Is cer
talply true that a law-defying com
munity l)as no claim to take part in
enacting pr enforcing the laws.
Furthermore, those Mormons .of
Bingham county will doubtless easily
, recall a pertinent passage In the fa
mous Woodruff manifesto of 1890, which
was endorsed at the ensuing confer
ence, and which rpads as follows:
Inasmuch as laws have been enacted by
Congress forbidding plural marriages,
which laws havo been pronounced con
stitutional by the court of la3t resort,
I hereby declare my Intention to submit
to thoso laws, and to use my Influence
with tho members of thp church over
which I presldo to havo thpm do like
wise. We did not hear of any of the Mor
mon attendants at the conferpnee In
whjch that was ratified, getting up
and walking out of the body because
It made tha. ratification, though doubt
less some were there from Bing
ham county, Idaho. But why
not, If they can't stand the dpclara
tion of thp political platforms cited?
The basic offense of all is polygamy,
and this Is renounced and repudiated
by the manifesto,
It Is evident that those Mormons of
Bingham county are not In fact good
Mormpns, nor good citizens; they arc
in need of church discipline on the one
hand and of State discipline on the
WHERE THE' CREDIT IS PUE. '
The Democratic campaign managers
arp writhing frantically under the offi
cial showing that but for President
Roosevelt the Irrigation law would not
and could not have been passed. They
retort that more Republicans voted
against the neqsure than Democrats.
It true, thjs would only make- President
Roosevelt's services in behalf of the law
the more ponsplcupus; for the Republi
cans were In control of the House, where
the bill had stuck; and It could not have
been resuscitated if they had been really
opposed to it.
But President Roosevelt actually
overcame all oppqsltlon, from every
source; and his was the signal triumph
of bringing to the fruition of actual deed
the theories of many. When a man doeq
tills, he is entitled to the credit; Just as
thp Democrats with practjeaj unanimity
plalm that Schley Is. entitled to the
credit of destroying thp Spanish squad
ron, because he was present when the
actual work was done, though it was
donp on the plan and by virtue of the
programme and orders of Admiral
Sampson, whq was temporarily absent
from the fight.
The man who in fact does the work is
the man who is In fact entitled to the
credit and the praise; and under this
rule, the credit belongs to President in
the casp of the Irrigation law.
The Democratic county committee
has gravely stated that It will make no
slate and will recommend nonp; that
It will not take any part In forestalling
r.pmlnatlons nor in helping or harming
any one's candidacy. This Is an ex
quisite bit of humor. All inow where
the slate will be made, and that the
Democratic committee will not have
anything to do with It. The denial of
a committee slate is as unnecessary as
the making of one by that body would
bp considered presumptuous by the real
WHAT TO DO WITH ThE FRUIT.
We understand that the Salt Lake
County Horticultural Society is ponsld;
ering the glut of fruit in the market,
and the great waste of It on the farms, i
this year, that waste being very large.
The question Is, what can be done
about It, not only to prevent that waste
and utilize tho fruit, but also to so
rnanarre that there shall not be an
over-supply In tho market, with the
consequent brcakln prices.
This hes beep a ypar of plenty, par
ticularly for fruit; and it Is surpris
ing that the fruit-growers do not take
measures to protect their pwn inlpr
ests. In other places they do this, aijd
usually in tho form of an association
to handlo and dispose of their prod
ucts, and to supervise the preparation
of fruit for the market, so that It
shall make a good appearance and be
in fit condition.
Davis county supplies a very large
proportion of the fruit that pomes to
this market from Utah points, though
this county and other counties also sup
ply more or less. This indjeates that
there Is a splepdld opening for a can
ning factory at this point, wjilch not
only would take the surplus fruit, but
would enhance the value of what Is
put on tbe market. The nearest fruit
canning establishment is, we believe,
at Syracuse; It Is reported to be quite
successful. There Is no reason why
one In this city should nt bg even
Another way of disposing of the fruit
is by shipping it out of the State, as
Brigham City and American Fqrk are
doing successfully; put pven then .hey
have fruit going io waste, especially
peaches and apples. In tho peach
orchards about Brigham City, piles of
ppaches lie on thp ground uspless; they
can neither bp eaten, because there arc
not peopje enough to do it, nor shlppad,
because they are too ripe.
Surely our fruit-growers should wake
up to the opportunity nature has so
bounteously endowed them with, or na
ture may take a hand to smite through
the waste by an increasp qf thp codling
moth and the peach worm, the same as
the corn worm punished the careless
corn-grower of thp East, and the boll
weevil the indifferent cotton planter of
thp South. " '
The Salt Lake County Horticultural
Society Is to be commended for its ac
tivity and zeal in thig business. Wo
hope that It may succeed In waking
up thp orchardmen to realize their op
pqrtunltiea and their advantages.

It Is understood that this board of
engineers will not confine themselves
to mere office work and passing Judg

but that they will go over the ground
personally, and spe' for themselves the
general outlines and conditions.
There can be no reasonable doubt of
the approval of the project by these

quire that the advantages of the prq

has, In fact, already been done. We
may therefore expect the good news of
the approval by this body of the Utah

tensive that approval may bp pf the
other projects that have been presented
or whether It will Include the Du
