A wicked reporter in Philadelphia re
ports that a recent Jury in a larceny
case there brought in this verdict: "Not'
guilty, provided he pays for the over
coat." Ajid yet, that sounds wondrously
like a story that used to be current and
located In one of the Nevada mining
lfl camps. The fact is, that a large pro-
portion -of the best stories current In the
East are stolen from the West, Worked
over, and started anew as something
HH that has Just happened in the East.
Governor Odell of New York is quoted
HH as saying that the New York Legisla-

low. Dr. Chauncey M. Depew, for in
stance, whose term as United States
Senator expires next March, is wonder
ing whether the Odell claim extends to
his scat, and If so, whether Dr. Depew
will be the Odell suggestion for United

old-fashioned ideas, hut what a tribute

power of advertising!
YES, LET US GIVE THANKS.
When everybody else wauled to be- a
little bit pleacant about election matters,
after the intense strain was over, the
Deseret News mourned as one who re
fused to be comforted, and roared as one
whose wrath could not be appeased. It
talked about wounds which were so
deep that they would remain after the
scars were effaced, or scars that vero
so deep that they would remain after
wounds were healed. It pretended to
think that the campaign waged by the
American party had been so cruel In its
character as that the self righteousness
of the News and Its proprietors had
been stabbed In several vital places. To
be sure, there was nothing In the Ameri
can party campaign which should have
wounded any decent man's sensibility.
This paper has repeatedly demanded
that the time arid place bo mentioned
when the American party indulged in
ony vituperation or abuse of anybody
or any other party; and the News has
been so unable to Identify and prove as
that It has replied solely by piling more
and more nasty adjectives with each
reiteration of Its falsehood.
But now when we are entering upon
another controversy and one to which
the contest at the polls on the 8th day
of November last was but a prelude
namely, the trial of tho church leaders'
at the bar of American justice, the Des
eret News with Its usual facility to be
servile where It no longer dares to blus
ter, begins to talk a tot oi namoy
pamby stuff about why should nol all
who live in Utah unite In making the
State one of the most blessod in the
Union, Indicating an expectation that
Thanksgiving day Is to be a time of mu
tual falling upon necks and weeping
floods of tears of loving regard between
Charles Mostyn Owen and Jooaph F.
Smith or other similarly antagonistic
spirits. And in order to have some
maudlin influence upon the American
party the News proclaims under Its
heading of "Let us Give Thanks" that
neither Joseph F. Smith nor Reed Smoot
nor any one connected with the church
"entertains the least feeling of bitter
ness or hostility lo any of their fellow
men." There are certain words in the English
language which arc the exact descrip
tion of that kind of talk in the News;
but they aranot words which should be
used in good society. Iet the public
content itself by hearing that the News
willfully and flagrantly falelfles. It is
not many weeks since Joseph F. Smith
over his own signature gave out to the
world through the Associated Press a
statement in which reference was made
to his "enemies." He did not use the
word In any other than Its real sense.
The controversy was concerning some
other word. And he deliberately de
clared that he used that 'word and
meant "enemies." v
The Deseret News and its proprietors
will strive in vain to arouse favorable
sentimentalities In the Jury of Ameri
can people before whom their postponed
case is to be brought to trial. If they
give lhanks It is that they have been
able to deceive their intending Judges
or jury of peers and that they have been
successful in their effort to dupe the vic
tims of their selfish methods and their
And while they are thus giving thanks
and making hypocritical pretension
that they feel well toward all mankind,
the American people of Utah, who do
not feel well toward the Deseret News
and its proprietors, will give thanks
from grateful hearts that the day of
genuine and perpetual freedom has be
gun to dawn in Utah. The American
people are aroused and the wrong Is to
be made right, and that Is the best
Thanksgiving the people of this State
have known since 1896.
THE SCHOOL NOMINATIONS.
The nominations made by the so
called non-partisan3 (In fact, by a
union of the partisans) for members of
the Board of Education in this city, aim
to keep the schools as they arjs; that is
the avowed object. ' It Is of Interest,
therefore, to note Just what the present
control Is, premising the summary
with the self-evident proposition that
the Mormon members -have proved
themselves always and every time sec
taries, and do not know how to be any
In the First ward, then, we have on
the Mormon side, Messrs. Brnntlng,
who Is a Mormon, and Mr. Cummlngs,
who was elected by the Mormons and
always acts with them: in the Second
ward, Mr. Glauque; In the Third,
Messrs. Newman and Moyle; in the
Fourth, Mr. Thomas six.
Tho Gentile strength is four Messrs,
Chccsman in the Second, Mr. Geoche
gan in the Fourth, and luessrs. Nelden
and Henderson In the Fifth.
Now, the contention Is that this is a
condition which it is desirable to per
petuate. Wo may be pardoned for dis
sent. We do not think that It is. For,
as we have shown, the Mormon mem
bers are always sectarian: even when
they don't mean to be, they are. The'
only true non-sectarians are the non-.
Mormons, and to have the public
schools of thlH city non-sectarian, they
should be in the control of the ony non
sectarians there are.
The crucial position in this election Is
In . the Second ward. Wo assume that
the non-Mormons can and will elect In
the First ward; for on any sort of a di
vision they are entitled to elect; the
Mormons elected their man the last
time, and they surely cannot claim In
that ward to elect all the time.
In tho Third ward, the Mormons will
elect, of course: where they have the
power, they never dream of sharing
with the Gentiles; they have and mean
to retain both members of the Third.
In the Fourth, the non-Mormons are
fairly sure of electing one member, pos
sibly they may elect both; and they will
elect one In the Fifth.
That leaves the Second the fighting
ground. In which Mr. Glauque seeks a
third term on a record that Is In no
way satisfactory. If there has been
bigotry, Mr. Glauque has helped it, If
there has been Inefficiency. Mr. Glauque
would be Ignorant of or Ignore it. If
there has been partiality toward Mor
mon teachers and the cold shoulder to
non-Mormons, he Is in part rcspbnsl
ble. He attacks Superintendent Coop
er, saying that he did not want his sal
ary Increased to $3000 a year, yet he 13
content to pay Mr. Chrlstensen $3600.
The public thinks that the reason Is,
because Mr. Cooper Is a Gentile and Mr.
Chrlstensen Is a Mormon. Mr. Cooper
Is an educator of fame and standing;
he was gladly engaged by Seattle, a
city far, greater than Salt Lake In pop
ulation and wealth, and at a salary
which we are Informed Is much greater
than he as!ed here. Our candid opinion
Is that Air. Glauque's record on the
Board, combined with his Imperfect
knowledge of school work and what
schools ought to be. do not entitle him
to re-election. We hope to seo the
American, convention tonight name a
candidate who should and will beat Mr
THE WATER QUESTION FAIRLY UP.
By the action of the City Council on
Monday evening, the report of the ma
jority of the special water committee
was adopted, and the date of special
election on the question of Issuing a
million dollars In bonds for the purpose
of carrying out the scheme so adopted,
was set for January 3, 1D05. -
This puts the question squarely be
fore the people, and discussion should
now be brisk, so that the plan adopted
may be thoroughly comprehended by
the people and the merits of it fully
presented. That thero are objections to
the proposition Is clear from the votes
and opinions of five of the fourteen
members of the Council participating
In the session at which the plan was
adopted and the election ordered.
These objections were forcibly pre
sented by Councilman Wood, a member
of the special committee. His address
in opposition was largely confined to
what he alleccd to be the uncertainty
of the proposition. Practically his po
sition amounted to this: Do wc assur
edly get the water promised, by adopt
ing this plan? He thought not. And
he criticised the plan of the majority as
not well considered, In that important
changes had been made in It, at almost
the last hour.
What is this plan? A committee
cqmprislng the Mayor, the special wa
ter committee, and a committee of five
business men of tho city will co
operate in drafting a complete state
ment of the whole proposition with the
arguments for Its adoption, and pre
senting these to the people. We trust
that this may be made so plain, con
cise, and convincing that tho whole
people may conscientiously unite In
supporting the proposition, provided
that this is In fact found to be the best
thing to do.
In the meantime, a brief restatement
of the project may not be out of place.
It Is proposed to obtain the additional
water, so as to quadruple the city's
present supply during the season of
greatest scarcity, by exchange. The
farmers who own the rights in Big
Cottonwood and Mill Creek have given
the city options (which fully protect
themselves) on sufficient of the flow of
those streams, in exchango for water
from the big canal. The water for the
exchange supply can always be de
pended upon, first by pumping from
Utah Lake, as now, or after the Gov
ernment reclamation work . has been
done, through that work. To make this
exchange supply absolutely certain, and
avoid any possibility of shortage In
supply of the exchange water to the
farmers, It Is proposed to purchase
outright the waters of Spring Creek.
A conduit from the mouth of Big Cot
tonwood to Parley's canyon is proposed,
to convey the water to the pipe system
of the city, and It is reckoned that the
present conduit from the Parley's can
yon reservoir will be of ample size to
carry all the water that will be needed
in the time when water Is scarcest. It
Js well known that when tha't conduit
Is full, and City creek Is running, even
In a time of low water, tho supply Is
sufficient. The discharge of the proposed
conduit at Parley's end would also, af
ford a fine water power.
The committee is confident that the
options on Big Cottonwood water are
valid, and will permit the water to be
taken out at the tallrace of the old pa
per mill. Some object, however, that
Ihis taking may not be fully practica
ble on account of other rights in the
3tream, and that the old paper mill
right' may have lapsed through disuse.
We presume, however, that all this will
bo fully explained by the report of the
committee which has been authorized.
It is gratifying to note, further, that
the Board of Governors of the Commer
cial Club have appointed a strong com
mittee to look Into this whole question
from an Impartial standpoint, and make
a report according to findings that the
committee may make. Between this
committee afid the official committee
provided for by the Council, the public
ought to be well informed, and be able
to make up' its mind understanding'.
This water proposition is by far the
most Important to come before the pub
lic with the new year, and it Is well to
get all possible light upon It. A num
ber of Important points are yet to be
made clear, and of coui-ec the main ono
is that which Is challenged by the mi
nority of the Council,, the real addition
that the proposed plan will make to tho
water supply of the city.
A COMMUNITY GRIEF.
There aarc some calamities that can
come Into human life so unaccountable
and so complete as that all attempts
at the expression of human sympathy
seem to be unavailing. Such a visita
tion Is that which has descended upon
the parents of young Scott, the lad
whose infirmity of mind has led him to
commit an act of violence and has
necessitated his going to a mental
hospital. The Tribune gives tho feel
ing of all men and women who know
the splendid parents of tho young man,
when It says that loving regard Is
extended to them by the community
in this hour of their aflllctiom Only
those who have suffered under a mis
fortune like this can reallxe how worse
than death some living afflictions may
be. Mr. Scott and his wife arc pf most
estimable character, and It Is through
no fault of theirs, either In their mental
or moral capacity or their training of
their child, that this misfortune has
occurred. God only knows the cause;
and He alone can assuage the grief.
