queer now that anybody should have
thought them doubtful,) he had no Idea
of the tremendous ground swell that
was to mako Roosevelt the most popu
lar man who ever ran for l'rcsldent In
this country, slnco the days of Washington.
'ROOSEVELT IS THE ISSUE."
No ono will fall to call to mind tho
outcry of tho Democrats during the
campaign when' they were reminded
that they had presentod to tho people
no Issue on which they could appeal
for votes, that "Roosevelt in tho issue.'
That seemed indefinite onough; qulto1
as lndoflnlto ns the Democratic platform
Itself. , For It was not explained In any
Intelligible way what It was they ob
jected to In Roosevelt.
Was it his Panama acts? No; for
Parkor said that he would take hold
there where Roosevelt left off.
Was It tho trustfi? No; for Parker
paid that no further legislation was
necessary In CongTess; that the States
could attend to tho trusts; thus deposing
the trust question from Its position as
a National issue.
Was It tho Philippines? No; for It
was admlted on all hands that nothing
different could be done there at present
from what wo are doing.
"Was it the money question? No; for
Parker proclaimed that this was irre
"Was it that tho President had Invited
Booker Washington to lunch V No; for
tho South, evon, Bald that was no Issue.
Was lb tho foreign diplomacy of tho
Roosevelt administration? No; for every
power having knowledge of the matter
knew that this had shed Imperishable
luster upon this country.
What was It, then, that the Democ
racy objected to In Roosevelt? We
heard at times that it was something
he had said about "a big stick;" that
he was constantly wanting something to
bo done; that he was hard on evil-doers;
that he was a staunch friend when he
was a friend at all; that he- was anxious
for his country to play a great part In
tho world, and so on.
Well, that means that the objection
was to Mr.' Roosevolt as a man, to his
personnjlty. The issue, then, must bo
token to be decided on that basis,
It Is decided, then, that the American
people like him; that they like him far
beyond their ordinary liking for any
body else; that they like his "big stick"
for trespassers, cowards and sneaks;
that they like a man who wants things
done, and who delights to uphold tho
honor and the glory of tho Nntlon.
And being so emphatically settled, the
Democratic party may well be asked
what folly possessed them to make an
issue on the very stylo of man which
the history of the country proves the
American people most admire. They
admire the strenuous life. They ad
mired Andrew Jackson more- than any
other man of his time, because he was
a 9trenuous man; they admired' Grant
because he did things; they admired Mc
IClnley because he made things safe and
also made things move. They love and
admire Roosevelt for the same qualities.
And whenever the politicians got It Into
their heads that the American people
might prefer a milk-and-water man to
one with fire and energy, Joined with a
proper discretion, they make a disas
trous mistake, for which they are bound
to suffer eclipse.
AS TO THE SCHOOLS.
Here Is a small editorial from last
Let tho peoplo begin to think about
the school election. Only tho very best
citizens should bo put on tho Board of
Education, which must bo kept abso
lutely and honestly non-partisan. There
oxlsts In this city an orcanlzailon that
Intonds, If It can got control of them,
to make tho public schools bltlorly par
tisan. Which Is all correct as to putting the.
best citizens on the Board, the need of
keeping the schools honestly non-partisan,
and also as to the organization
that Intends, if It can get control of
the schools, to make them bitterly par
tisan. But the wording should be amended.
It should say that there is in this city
an organization which has already got
hold of the public schools, and Intends,
if it can, to contlnuo that control, and
continue them as they have been for a
year and more, In bitterly sectarian
A FEELER TOWARD PEACE.
Japan is reported to have made un
ofllclal representations to Russia, look
ing toward peace. The report states
that Russia incontinently rejected the
feeler. But It Is doubtful if the whole
matter will bo left to Russia to accept
The British Secretary for Foreign
Affairs in his speech at the Guildhall
banquet on Wednesday night, dwelt
with such significant emphasis on arbi
tration that his speech 1b taken to be a
hint that Great Britain would support
France and the United Slates In Inter
vention to stop the carnage.
It seems that President Roosevelt Is
looked to to take the Initiative In
making the peace proposulw, and that
France would join as an original party
In the making of them, with Great
Britain as the supporter of both.
It Is problematical what course the
Emperor of Germany would tako; but It
Is known that he would be extremely
careful to do nothing that would ruflle
the feelings of the Czar. If the other
powers should proceed without him,
there Is opened the possibility of a con
test between Russia and Germany on
the one side and Great Britain, France
and the United States on the other,
as 1 predicted by a Polish patriot in
.an Interview, wlt& Mr, Stead ia iuo
lost number of the Monthly Review of
If Russia is wise, she will listen to
tho volco of tho powors whenever they
mako up their minds to Intervene. Not
only would sho lose by refusing In
actual material advantago at tho final
s2ttlemont, her prcstlgft would bo
badly damaged, by a refusal; for Japan
Is likely to treat hor nt tho last with
a severity much greater than would bo
urged by tho great powers of Europe.
THE AMERICAN AD0RESS.
The Trlbuen prints In another column
this morning tho ringing address of tho
chairman and tho secretary of tho
American party, congratulating the
loyal people of Utah on tho great voto
polled by the party at the recent elec
tion and1 bidding thorn be of good cheer
for the future.
It la a hearty, triumphant) addroBB,
as It In ontltled to be; for wondore woro
done In tho short time wlthliv which tho
campaign had to bo made, and. the
heavy voto polled is witness to tho
depth to which American prlnoiploa
have sunk into tho pebplo's heavta.
Tho campaign for poreonal llbortj',
and to throw off apoBtolle control In
politics and In tho schools, has but bo-
gun. It will nover oeaso until tho evil
It wages war against Is entirely obliter
ated. All loyal folk who bellovo in this
war for liberty aro Invited to join In
tho work and slay with the light.
"STAMP OUT THE EVIL."
The above Is the tlllo of a ranting
editorial in Friday night's Descret
News. It means by tho phrase, that
tho objection to church domination In
politics, In the ochools, and In secular
affairs, must be stamped out.
But would It not bo far moro In con
sonance with American methods, tra
ditions, and principles, to stamp out the
church domination? If the News will
atrrec that this must be stamped out,
then The Tribune will join with it in
the good work; and when that Is done
the objection to church dominance will
also disappear, and at the same time.
That would cure and eradicate tho
whole evil at once. To stamp out tho
objection to church dominance, and al
low that domlnancs to contlnuo, would
be neither sense nor genoralshlp, for as
loner as the church' domination contin
ues, thero arc bound to bo objections to
it, whereas If the evil Itself, tho domi
nance which 13 complained of. Is wiped
out. then tho whole matter Is done with,
both tho subject of tho complaint and
the complaint itself.
The News breaks out into the excla
mation, "How silly wmc folks aro when
disappointed in politics!" Wo agreo
that If any ono was disappointed In
the result of the election just hold, silly
Is a mild word to describe his mental
condition. There has not at any time
been tho slightest doubt about tho gen
eral result in this State; Apoatle Smoot
was sustained by his quorum In noml
nutlnc Elder Cutler for the Governor
ship, and that grand sustaining was the
sustaining of the church, and when
twelve prophets, seers, and revelators
sustain a thing, whether It Is political
or not, there should bo no doubt what
ever about the result.
Those familiar with the working of
the machine could never have had the
slightest doubt that It would effect the
result aimed at. The only thing which
at any time was In the slightest shadow
of a doubt was as to Judge Powers,
when President Roberts came out for
him; that created a feeling for a day or
two that the church might be 'at Pct.v
ers's back, but that Idea was quickly
dissipated by the appearance of an
apostle on the stump'agalnst him. The
church was Indeed nt his back, but only
so that It could the easier and more
forcibly administer its kicks.
The Denver frauds no doubt elected
Mr. Adams Governor of Colorado. It Is
a city whose election frauds are not
only notorious, but are unparalleled in
their boldness and extent. A majority
of thousands is no guarantee that tho
other man was not elected on the honest
vote, ns Representative Shafroth saw,
and admitted, though the official can
vass gave him 41,111 votes to 3S,G18 for
his opponent, J. W. Bonynge. But In
spite of this apparent plurality of 27C6,
the Congressional hearing on the con
test clearly showed that the apparent
plurality was wholly fraudulent, and
Mr. Shafroth, like the honest man which
he is, gave up the seat to his opponent,
confessing that he had no Just claim to
It. We have not heard whether or not
Governor Peabody Intends to contest
the 'election, but there Is a very general
feeling In Colorado, that he ought to do
so, and that if he did he would win.
Julius G. Lay, U. S. Consul-General
at Barcelona, reports that according to
the census of 1000, the population of
Spain was 1S.S01.674, of which 9.0S7.S21
were males nnd 0.S03.753 females. The
number unable to read and write, In
cluding children, Is given at 11,000,000.
That the number of illiterates is being
slowly reduced is evidenced by the facts
that in 18G0 only 10.97 per cent of the
population could read and write; in 1877 j
the proportion bad Increased to 24.48
per cent, ten years later to 28.49 per
cent, and In 1900 to 33.4G per cent The
populations of the largest cities aro
given as follows; Madrid, 539,825; Bar
celona, 533,000; Valencia, 213.G50; Seville,
148.31G. The union of Spain, France
and Italy would form a vast. Latin em
pire which could well be made the grand
center and trength of the race, I thwt J
Is not such a union, the Latins aro In
danger of amalgamation with the Teu
tons and the English, and of being made
nltogothcr subsidiary to the main rul
ing races of tho world.
MAKING OVER THE BIBLE.
Tho Rev. Robert Tuck has published
roconlly a solvent of Biblical difficulties
which would easily have won martyr
dom for him nt any time during the
zealotry of the Middle Ages. Hore Is
his treatment of tho story of Jonah nnd
tho whale, for Instance. He Insists that
tho proper trantdatlon of that passage
Is nB follows. (Wo copy from Tho In
dependent): "Now the Lord had pre
pared a great bargo (fish) to remove
(swallow) Jonah, and Jonah was In, tho
hold (belly) of tho barge (fish) three
days and three nights." And his com
ment Is: "It appears that the ship In
which Jonah embarked was bound to
tho port of Tarahlsh, nnd the mariners,
having put Jonah in the boat, attempted
to pull him ashore, but tho sea being
tompestuous, they could not. Finding
It impossible to land him, they then re
turned to the ship, leaving Jonah In tho
boat at tho mercy of tho wavos; In
which perilous situation he was three
days and threo nights."
But any one could havo dono that; It
takes no Jonah to stay In a boat that
way, and with that sort of exegesis the
Blblo Is reduced to the commonplace.
Not only Is the Inspiration gone, but the
plcturcsqueness, the vital attractiveness
of tho story. At the samo rate, perhaps
tho miracle of the gourd and of tho
worm could also be explained away, as
well bb the conversations Jonah Is said
to havo had with tho Lord; in which the
prophet mado It clear ibat he consid
ered himself a badly used man, and that
the Lord had not done right by him In
his capacity of a prophet. Jonah's Idea
was that tho Lord, In picking him out to
go to Nineveh and proclaim the destruc
tion of that city, preparing a llsh to tako
him to the coast In Its belly, allowing
him to proclaim In the name of the Lord
that at tho end of forty days Nineveh
would bo destroyed, and then falling In
his part of the programme and saving
the city, the Lord had broken fnlth with
And now to have the wholo matter set
aside as an empty bungle In translation,
Is a little hard. We don't know but we
regret at times the passing away of the
old days when men wero made to smart
when they trilled with tho Bible. The
old faith such as Oom Paul displayed
when a scoffer denied tho existence of
the dovll will be wholly undermined at
this rate. Oom Paul's reply was con
clusive, a clincher; he opened his Bible,
found a full-page picture- of the devil
there, nnd triumphantly asked how It
was that a picture of a being that didn't
exist could be mado, and .above nil,
bo found In the Blblo. There was noth
ing more to say.
But tho Rev. Robert Tuck does not
stop with Jonah. He copies Mark xxvll.,
G2, "And the tombs were opened, and
many bodies of the saints that had
fallen asleep were raised; and coming
forth out of tho tombB after His resur
rection, they entered Into tho holy city,
and appoared to many." As to which
this comment Is appended: "In view of
all that can be urged In favor of, and
hejpful to, an explanation of this pass
age, we deeply feel that It is In every
way wiser, safer, and more honoring to
God's Word, to think It Is a stranger,
and has no business there."
This way of solving Biblical difficul
ties will hardly commend itself to the
candid mind. It smacks altogether
more of a determination to make over
the Bible to suit the Rev. Robert Tuck
than of an honest effort to mako the
Bible as It Is, comprehensiblo to the
THE REORGANIZED DEMOCRACY. "
There Is to be a reorganization of the
Democratic party, It appears, on Popu
list lines, and Utah Is especially named
as a State which the new organization
will tako In hand. The Hon. Thomas E.
Watson, whom the Populists ran for
President this vear. appears to be the
central figure In the movement, and
Messrs. Bryan and Hearst will co-operate
with him. The effect will of course
bo to mako the party an antl-truat
party, antl-impsriallstlc, and probably
anti-Mormon.tat least to tho extent of
denouncing polyganvy' and church Inter
ference In politics and In tho schools.
The effort probably will be to hold to
gether as far as possible the ."liver sen
timent of tho Wnyt, and to mako the
new organization a radical party. Thero
can bo no doubt but that tho Western
Democrats will refuse to be guided any
more by tho Domocrats of tho East,
seeing the utter disaster which that
Eastern guidance has just brought upon
tho party. '
The Whig party disappeared from
American political life after tho great
disaster which overwhelmed it In 1852,
and out of its ruins, and drawing from
the liberty sentiment in The Democratic
party, tho great and triumphant Re
publican party of the Nation came into
The situation now has many features
of similarity for tho Democratic party
to those which confronted the Whig
party fifty-two years ago. The Demo
cratic party is practically annihilated
as a forco In American politics. It sur
rendered principle In tho recent cam
paign, as the Wh'g party did In 1852,
and it has two Irreconcilable wings, as
the Whlcs had thon. Tho Democrats
of the East will for the most part be
content to go with the Republican
party, oa tho Whigs of the South in 1852
were content to go with the Democratic
The reorganized party will be able to
put into its declaration of principles all
kth ihlDsn that .Wat a on, ffran, and,.
Hearst stand fo And llrst of all, it
will have a lively war for tho namo
''Democratic." It 's not In the slight
est decree probable that the Eaalora
wing of the party would give up tho
namo, nt present, nt least- but if both
wings try to hold on to it, thero will be
a merry war four yoars heneo, and tho
radicals will be pretty euro to reap aa
arcat a victory as thc-y scorod at tho
Chlcaco convention of 1S96.
TRADS, BUSINESS, AND FINANCE.
Tho announcement mado by the gen
eral manager of the Chicago & North
Avoetorn that the track of this road
would bo extended westward from Cas
per, Wyoming, without delay, In the
spring, will be received with pleasure In
this State. It hns for a good many years
been recognized that this Is the most
likely Immediate extension hlthcrward
from the eastward, both because it
would bo tho shortest of all to build, and
because a good routa to Ogdcn has for
a long while been surveyed and is im
mediately available It Is said that work
on this extension will begin In tho
spring, and that It will bo vigorously
pushed. Which la certainly tho best of
Progress on the San Pedro, Los An
geles & Salt Lake road Is as could be
desired; active and showing good results
every day. It Is estimated that the rails
will meet about the first of December,
and that before the new year through
trains may be run. Very soon after tho
new year comes In, regular service will
bo Inaugurated, and any who suffer
from a cold spell can take the train in
the morning and be in the warm sun of
southern California the next day.
The Moffat road from Denver and tho
Western Pacific from San Francisco
seem both to be pushing on with satis
factory energy, and by next season wo
expect to hear much about both of them
Business conditions were never better
in this State at large than they are now.
Tho crops havo been abundant, nnd the
prices have been so high for everything
raised by the farmer that never beforo
were tho peoplo throughout Utah so wll
supplied with money as this season.
Live stock, too, is readily sold, and at
prices that a few years ago would havo
been considered get-rlch-qulck.
Tho mines continue their overwhelm
ing, rich production; the totnl for 1904
must crowd close upon three million dol
lars. The end of tho year is showing a
much, heavier production than the earlier
months; this because the mines are con
stantly adding new channels of wealth
In their explorations, and because the
smelters and mills of the valley are
constantly enlarging their plants and
adding to their facilities for reducing
the vast volumes of ores that are offered
for treatment Never before was tho
smelting Industry here on so strong and
growing a basis as It Is now.
In this city, trade reflects in its
strength the favorable conditions that
would be expected from the great pro
duction of the mines" and the good crops
with the high prices for them. The
bank clearances of the week shnw n
gain of 14 per cent compared with the
corresponding week last year. Trade
Is brisk and collections good. The rail
way rates are against us for the Job
bing trade, and it seems hard to get
any relief; on the contrary, tho opening
of the Idaho common rate to Portland
Jobbers, Is distinctly disadvantageous
to this city.
The building operations of the year
continue in good activity, and cover
every Bort of structure needed In hu
man life, business, and help. The Y.
M. C. A. building Is getting on well, a
flno large brick structure which will
cost when completed $125,000. The
Emery Hats at Eagle Gate, are prob
ably the must striking structure of the
yean It is sure that the building rec
ord this year will eclipse all former sea
In the country at large, whatever re
striction there was on trade and Indus
try has been removed, and the outlook
Is optimistic; wholesale business la en
larged, there Is a firmer tone to prices,
nnd cheerful reports are made of tho
winter trade and prospective spring de
mand. Railway earnings exceed last
year's by 3.8 per cent in October, with
better distribution. The iron trade is
strong, woolen mills are busy, and there
Is a steadily diminishing amount of Idle
machinery. Prices of all products are
well maintained. Business failures 'aro
below tho average.
Bank clearances in New York show a
gain of 20.1 per cent, compared with the
corresponding week last year, and a
loss of 1.4 per cent In the cities outside
of New York, a gain in the aggregate
for all of 12.8 per cent The New York
bank statement, issued yesterday,
shows a heavy decrease in loans, and a
heavier decrease in deposits, perhaps
caused by withdrawals to pay election
The activity of trading in stocks is a
feature of tho latter part of tho week.
Tho election being over, and an assur
ance thus hold out that business condi
tions will not be disturbed, speculation
has become general, and the confidence
of the entire business community Is
keyed up to the highest mark. The
labor troubles are practically over for
the year, and enterprise and Industry
are on a broader and sounder basis
than ever before.
No act of the President could have
been more gratefully received by the
country than hla announcement that
Secretary Hay will conllnuue In his of
fice of Secretary of Stale for the en3u
lnir four years from the 4th of March
next. Mr. Hay has won a great name
In the world of diplomacy, and he has
carried American diplomacy to a higher
effloleaair lhaa It had even boforo
reached. At the same timo more world
wide problems have como under his
consideration than oyer beforo camo
Into the purview of an American Secre
tary of Slate, and on every point Sec
retary Hay hns boon found the master
of Iho situation. Intollh?ant Americans
fully understand his high service? to bin
country, realize the groat fi-ruro he cuts
as a diplomat, and know that it is
good to retain nlm where he is.
UTAH WELL TO THE FRONT.
Utah is certainly capturing her shnre
of gold medals at the St, Louis exposi
tion; Director-General Whitaker roports
under date of November Gth to Governor
Wells the award of twenty moro to this
State, including an award of tho grand
prize for State collective exhibit, and a
grand prize for modern concentrating
mill; but the latter being in cxcchs of
the awards allowed by the regulations,
twenty medals were added to our llHt of
awnrds, In lieu of the grand prize that
was not permissible.
The Utah silk exhibit received a gold
medal, after a heated contest, and the
Utah honey exhibit also took a gold
medal. The silk exhibit was a port of
the Utah exhibit which won the grand
prize for Irrigated products. It is a sig

We doubt very much the truth of tho
supposition that Kruger secreted large
quantities of gold In South Africa. We
believe that the' gold looted by him and
his fellows from the mines was sent to
Europe to pay for cannon, rifles, and
ammunition, of which the Boers had
such an unlimited supply. There Is no
reason In the world why, If any one
knows of the hiding-place of any trea
sure, It should not be dug up now and
quietly divided among the finders. For
that matter, it might have been done
long ago. Tho story of this treasure
will no doubt take Its place In the pop
ular mind with the stories of the burled
treasure of Captain Kldd, and other like
yarns, which delude men continually,
but have never any practical results.
ODDS AND ENDS.
James Bryco Is a small man, about 63
years old, with a largo head, most of
which seems to protrudo backward and
to slant upward and backward from his
high forehead. Ho Is bald on top, with
that sort of white hair and beard which
sometimes turns yellow. He has bushy
oyebrows of lh- samo color. Is round
shouldered, nicely dressed, and has qulto
a distinct Irl3h accent, not at all tho
broad English accent which I had ex
pected. Ho Is a distinct speaker, though
quiet and absolutely unomotlonal. Ho
has a high nasal voice, but ho expresses
himself la good English, and can bo easily
heard. Now York world.
At repartee and Impromptu retorts tho
Jap Is quick and sharp. Recently a Jap
anese merchant found himself vis-a-vis
with a rtuslan lawyer at a banquet given
by a big Importer. Tho Russ, anxious to
belittle the brown man opposite In tho eyes
of his friends, raised his glass to the
"Hero's trusting the Russians will soon
see tho end of tho Japanese army."
Instantly tho Jap replied:
"And here's honing they will never seo
tho rear end." Now York Press.

Tho so-called "sweet potato" Is no pota
to at nil but boiongs to an entirely differ
ent family, being truly nn enlarged root
of a creeping, twining vino, which has a
blossom something like a morning glory.
Sweet potatoes aro richer In starch and
sugar than tho common potato.
"You don't belong to ono of tho oldest

"No." answered Mrs. Cumrox; "but af
