AN UNSHAKEN AMERICAN PARTYis ," ;
Tt Is time for the American parly,
leaders and members, to carefully con-'
slder the new situation which has been
created from within the church coun
cils. Whatever may have been the original
Intention, and whatever may have been
the force of nrgument by which Reed
Smoot persuaded the church leaders
that a Republican victory here was
necessary, and all sufficient, to protect
them and himself from 'disaster In
Washington, It has recently been made
apparent that the church proposes to
divide the. political plunder between
both of the old polltlcni parties.
No ono outside of the councils of the
ecclesiastical autocrats Is able to give
the exact language In which they have
phrnscd their purpose; hii the purpose
Is plain, and It Is accurately described
"Wo will give the National ticket to
the Republican party, because we be
lieve that President Roosevelt will be
elected, and we desire to stand well with
the administration at Washington. This
will create a favorable feeling for us
In the White House, and Apostle Smoot
may thereby claim the friendly assist
ance of the President. It will also
maintain a sympathetic relation be
tween him and the Republican Senate.
While doing this, we will sacrifice some
of our own adherents who are oa the
Republican ticket. Including Congress
man Howell (who Will not dare to
expose us), and will elect in their
places Democrats, so that the Demo
cratic party loaders -here may no longer
cry that they ha-ve been the victims of
church influence. To the world at large
we will excuse this division, this dis
criminating division of the offices, by
saying that the Amorlcan party'ls re
sponsible for the Idiosyncrasies this
year. Just as wo tried to put the muni
cipal results last year to the blame of
the bolting Republican Gentiles."
It may be that the church leaders
can carry out this project. Mr. Howell
may serve as the ram In the thicket to
save Mr. Smoot as Isaac, who is really
on the altar. The Democrats may feel
that gratitude forbids them to criticise
the means by which offices may be ob
tained for them or' their party nomi
nees. But American party adherents
will neither be deceived nor silenced.
The .party will wage this year its open,
straightforward, and vigorous light to
'establish in this State American polit
ical conditions. Whatever may be the
procured results at the polls, the efforts
of the American party will not slacken,
nor will its ranks grow thinner. There
will be thousands of accessions after
election, and the party will grow Into a
predominance In this State.
The "fairness" of the church In di
viding the plunder Is only -further-proof
that the church dominates In politics,
and that the American party's mission
Is necessarv until the church leaders
can neither give all the olllces to one
party nor distribute them to the two
parties so that they can have neither
a partnership with one political party
nor hold the other In a state of cowardice.
Possibly the enormous lottos of the
Ruralans In "their aggressive campaign
below Mukden will never be known. But
reports of the Japanese show the find
ing of 13,333 Russian dead on the field.
That means a list of wounded of more
than fifty thousand, for It Is to be fairly
presumed that four times as many are
hit as are killed. These figures are,
however, necessarily incomplete, for the
Russiana must have burled some of
their own dead, and some positions
where there was great slaughter, as on
Lone Tree hill, and on the Japanese
right driven back, the Japanese did not
get at, and could not know how many
Avere dead. Perhaps eighty thousand
Russian dead, wounded and missing,
would not be putting the number too
high. It is a dreadful blood-letting, and
It certainly will tax the resources of the
Russian Empire to make It good, to say
nothing of transporting a second army
to Manchuria. j
The charity organlzallon effected at
the Theater on Sunday afternoon is n
most commendable move.. That It was
also a needed move, th& earnestness and
large-minded phllanthroplfy which dis
tinguished all that was said and done
fully attest. The resolution adopted as
the foundation of procedeurc was so
broad and charitable that all humanity
Is covered' by It, and the need of help
will be the only question In supplying
It The organlzallon will put the relief
work on the proper basis, systematizing
it, so that no known case of destitution
will be overlooked, and no impositions,
permitted. The relief work may now be
expected to go forward with a certainty
and business-like elilclency which will
be an assurance to all contributors that
their assistance will be worthily placed,
and to all who netrd that they will not
The Democrats, In their carping
claims of extravagance by the Govern
ment, belle the votes of their own mem
bers of the House and the Senate. All
the time, those members vote liberally.
But whatever criticisms there may be,
they are fully answered In President
Roosevelt's letter of acceptance, when
he says: "The prime reason why the
expenses of the Government have in
creased of recent years Is to be found
In 'the fact that the people, after ma
ture thought, have deemed It wise to
have certain new forms of work for the
public undertaken by the public. This,
necessitates such p-xpenditures, for In
stance, as those for rural free delivery,
or for the Inspection of meats under the
.Department of -Agriculture, .or, fori; Irri
gation." ,. '
PENROSE AT IT AGAm.
'Apostle C. W. Penros6 is Reported to
have asked lh his address at the Tab
ernacle on Sunday, "Who ever heard of
any one being commanded lo cast his
vote this way or lliat, cither In the
church or politically?"
To which vo might fairly reply, VWho
has not hoard of It?" '
As to Ihc church, who does not know
that the one who would vole against
"sustaining" the authorities as proposed
by the authorities themselves would be
in contumacy and would be disci
plined? Who does not remember tho
ruction caused only last year by the
case of a young man who voted against
the proposition to "sustain" Brother
Tanner? Jt was acknowledged every
where to be a bold and risky thing to
do, and the young man was promptly
called to account for his temerity. His
defense was that he believed brother
Tanner had taken his girl away from
him, and married her in polygamy. And
the end of that case has never yet' been
As to politics, who Is not familiar
with the fact that tho people are under
coercion to vote according to tho will of
the priesthood? The whole history of
the church proves it; there Is no ques
tion whatever about it. Tho troubles in
Utah have been chiefly caused by tho
Interference of the church in exactly
this way. The Democrats protested
against It In 1S95, the Republicans ob
jected to It In 1S98, and everybody ob
jects to It this year. " "For a specific
case, take that of James C. Bowman,
who was denied church privileges be
cause he voted, and persuaded others to
vote, for Mr. Crltchlow, for member of
the Board of Education, against Mr
Symons, who was the church candi
date, in 1897.
Now, It may be said, as a technical
dodge, that these cases do not prove tho
reverse of what Penrose said, because
there Is no evidence that these men
hnd received any specific commands
In the one cose to sustain brother Tan
ner, or In the other to cast hia ballot
for brother Symons. But that would
be a mere subterfuge, an evasion which
Is both shallow and contemptible. If a
man knows that he Is expected to do a
certain thing In accord with tho deelres
of the priesthood, and that he will be
disciplined If he does not do It, a(con
tontlon that ho Is not commanded to do
It Is a dishonest sneak.
But then, that sort of thing Is quite
characteristic of the person whose ut
terance Is quoted. For fifty years he
has been saying Just such equivocal
things, and trying to mislead the pub
lic by precisely that sort of dust-throwing.
In such work, he is an adapt, a
past master. . His unenviable notoriety
In that direction is so well known that
all one has to do In order to call up a
shrug of disgust and disapproval Is to
say of anything of that sort, that It was
written or spoken by Elder Penrose.
It would be difficult to overestimate
the gravity of the situation In the caro
of the firing upon the English Ashing
fleet by the Russians. There would
seem to be but one really appropriate
thing to do, and that Is the surrender
of the officers and men who did the
murderous deed, to the British law, to
be dealt with as pirates and murderers
This, with ample Indemnity to the fam
ilies of the slaughtered men, might be
a Just retribution; but In the old days
of British dominion upon the seas, the
restitution would havo been for such an
act the sinking of the whole of the Rus
sian fleet. As It Is, the British fleet
should detain the Russian vessels until
imply reparation as Is decided on shall
Chairman Taggart has evidently not
forgotten the old political maxim,
"Claim everything." In forecasting that
New York, New Jersey, Connecticut,
Maryland,' Delaware. West Virginia and
Indiana will all go Democratic, he al
most sweeps the field. There seems to
be no reason why he should not also
Include Wisconsin and Illinois, while he
Is about It. One of the objections the
Democrats made to their late National
Chairman, ex-Senator Jones of Arkan
sas, was that he was a habitual rain
bow chaser, and continued to make
earnest claims of victory when every
body knew that the campaign was lost.
It will be Interesting to see. how those
objectors arey going to treat Mr. Tag-
The sheepmen who are Jubilant at the
prospect of raceivlng twenty cents a
pound for their wool next season, are
of course basing their rejoicing 'on the
feeling that President Roosevelt will be
re-elected. For none of them believes
that If the Democrats had full sway,
they would get even ten cents a pound
for their wool. Six or eight cents were
the figures under Cleveland, and would
be under Parker If he could put his
theories Into effect.
Los Angeles has three thousand acres
of brush land which It Intends to con
vert Into a commercial forest. Here Is
an example for Salt Lake City. We
have a watershed and canyons under
municipal control which could be made
In a few years considerable sources of
forest wealth, while at the same time
performing every function that they
now perform In the way of "preserving
the purity of the water supply. Why
not try it?
The armored cruiser Colorado cer
tainly gave a good account of herself
In her official trial trip yesterday. An
Indicated speed of twenty-three knots Is
pretty fair railroad speed, equal to
twenty-six miles an hour. The Colorado
lo evidently golns to be a credit to the
navy, and a guarantee for the Jntcgrlty
of tho Munroii doctrlen that wlll be
JUDGE PARKER ON THE PHILIPPINES.
It Is astonishing that a man of-Judge
Parker'B slandlngds so poorly Informed
upon a matter with which ho attempts
to deal us he was Jn his criticism of af
fairs in the Philippines. He ha3 evi
dently taken for -gospel tho trash-Inflicted
upon the country by the -anM-'
Imperialists, and 'the twaddle that Br$'-
an Injects Into his buncombe stump
speeches. - '
The Ink on the reports of Judge Par
ker's speech on the Philippines was
hardly dry before Senator Fairbanks
Avas out In a 6cornful refutation of
Parker's assumptions and conclusions.
Mr. W. E. Curtis also, who has been in
the Philippines recently, Avroto a
scorching refutation of Parker's posi
tion and allegations AVlth respect to the
But It remained for a Southern Dem
ocrat, Governor Wright of tho Philip
pines, to make a seriatim and complete
refutation of tho Avholc of Judge Par
ker's argument, and to sweep tho
ground completely from under his feet.
He takes up Judge Parker's proposi
tions, point by point, and shows that
there is neither basis of fact nor fair
Inference In any of them.
Governor Wright's refutations shOAV
that ther.o has been, but little official
corruption, and no Government losses,
Judge Parker magnified both these
points, claiming terrible things.
The towns arc not In ruins, nor Is the
country devastated, as Judge Parker
claimed) the ravages of tho Avar
and the Avorse ra'ages of the
rinderpest , have been repaired,
and the archipelago makes an
repaired, and the archipelago makes an
excellent showing, both In home Indus
tries and products, and In foreign trade.
Taxation Is not oppressive, and the
customs duties are materially less than
under the Spanish regime; a complete
reversal of Avhat Judge Parker claimed.
Ladronlsm Is not popular, It doesn't
pay; the constabulary and not the U. S.
forces deal AVlth It promptly and ef
fectively; all this contrary to Judge
Parker's claim. There has been no
trouble of this sort at all In the past
NoAvspapers are not bought up or
browbeaten Into silence; they are' not
molested at all by the administration,
but Avhen they commit libel they are
liable to the courts, and tho libel lnA's '
arc the same as In the United States.
The newspapers criticise public affairs
AVlth freedom, and Avlthout any moles
tation. Govenor Wright is especially full and
emphatic In dealing Avlth Judge Parker,
and when he Is through, there Is not
much left of him.
The Russian fleet seems to haA'e had
better fortune In Its attack upon tho
British Ashing fleet than It has had In
fighting the Japanese navy. But thero
may be qulto as unpleasant conse
quences In the one case as In the other.
The attack on the British fishermen
avub no doubt a reckless frenzy brought
on by drink, In AA'hlch case It avIII be
found to be a costly spree.
