I EFFECTS ON JURIES.

IV German private roldler, for talking
ack to a sergeant who insulted the sol-
lier's sweetheart, was sentenced to
five years at hard labor, was dismissed
"rom the army and deprived of his civil
rights. The uncivil rights of the Ger
man officer must still be maintained.
The church organ professes great sat
isfaction with the work of the present
Board of Education in this city. No
wonder. It Is pretty hard to Imagine
anything that the church could desire
that it is not confident of getting by
1 the continuation of present conditions.
I Now this Is the way It ought to be
done. Dr. Albert E. Payne and his wife
have gone together from their homo at
Rivcrhcad, L. I., to Dakota, where they
will reside long enough to get a dI'orce.
' Tho charming agreeablcncss of this pro
ject between the doctor and his lovely
young wife gives us all a sweeter faith

I, Baron Hugh McMalion of County Ar-
magh, Ireland, died and left a large
I ! estate. His son refused to take the title
, I and property, because to do so would
i oblige him to swear allegiance to the
' British crown. He became a policeman
in St. Louis and died there last week.
His son. a priest, also refuses to accept
, , the estates and title under the offensive
conditions named. They ought to have
had a little training in the Uj.nh colony
which has been established in Canada.

HOW TO "BOOST" THE CITY.
The building of a great city is va
riously achieved in various countries.
For Instance, In the Russian posses
sions In the far cast a mighty and
model metropolis, Harbin, was con
structed under imperial ukase, without
Inhabitants, without commerce, and
without surrounding resources.
But outside of the countries or the
situations In which some dictum, rein
forced by unlimited money, produces
the result, cities grow by the more or
less rapid accretions resultant from hu
man energies. Conditions which Invite
gregarious men to assemble at :i given
point make for upbuilding; and even
natural disadvantages arc either over
thrown nr utilized as benellts when
men in sulllclent numbers meet with
common purpose to "make the town,"
as In the case of Chicago, where the
location was a marsh but men were
In considering our own Salt Lake, we
first acknowledge that nature estab
lished a magnificent city site, in the
midst of scenic glory and almost cli
matic perfection. Such agriculture as
the State has developed Is largely trib
utary to Salt Lake. Such manufactur
ing as the State supports Is largely trib
utary to Salt Lake. The peerless min
ing industry of the State, and the
smelting Industry attendant, are also
tributary to Salt Lake.
It should be a greater city than Den
ver. Why not? It Is older; it has richer
surroundings. It has, or should have,
everything that Denver possesses and
many things more. And, yet it has
lagged, despite Its wealth, despite tho
lavish energy of some of Its citizens,
despite the fame that has sounded
around the world.
This is America, and you cannot build
a great city In America except under
American conditions. Salt Lake will
not achieve the hopes and the needs of
her citizens, nor the splendid alVitudes
I of which she Is capable, urvll'l Ameri
can conditions arc fixed "here beyond
tho possibility of assault.
This is purely a, practical question,
into which no sentimentality enters.
This city A'Seds to keep the money
which tho State produces for the city's
enrichment. It needs to retain its pres
ent population and hold the natural in
croise of that population. Theso com
bined will, In the long process of time,
make of Salt Lake a rich and populous
city. If we desire more rapid growth
if, in other words, the hope of the
real estate men is to be gratified we
must depend upon the inflow of many
people from other parts of the world,
and most particularly the other and
older States of the Union.
Men who are worth while, men of
family and men of means, will not leave
American conditions in other States to
establish themselves in a city, or Invest
their capital In a place, where the con
ditions are un-American and yet under
the American flag.
If, then, the friends of progress In
Salt Lake desire to "boost" Salt Lake
they must, to be consistent, labor de
terminedly for the assertion of such so
cial conditions In this town as will be
The Tribune cordially joins in the
hope and tho labor to make Salt Lake
the surpassing metropolis of the moun
tain West; and In joining the ranks of
the "boosters for Salt Lake," The Tri
bune urges that the very first consider
ation should bind all of such into a
fraternity consecrated to the establish
ment of an American city In an Ameri
THE LAND BOARD SECRETARYSHIP.
It appears that there Is a contest on
of rather a strenuous character for the
secretaryship of the State Land Board,
under the Cutler administration The
contest is not especially political, eith
er; the position seems to be regarded
more as a plum with which one or an
other bank Is to bo favored, rather
than as a part of tho political "loaves
Governor Wells appointed Byron
Groo. a Democrat, to that place, claim
ing that h-o wanted to have honesty and
efficiency; yet he hastens to explain
that there was no lack of these in Wes
ley K. Walton, who was the first secre
tary of the Board. The reason stated,
therefore, for the appointment of Mr.
Groo had no application to the case, un
less the Governor should claim that
there was no Republican to be found
who was honest and capable, a proposi
tion for which he of course would not
for a moment stand. This procedure,
however, shows that the position Is not
regarded as a partisan appointment.
Something else controls It.
What Is that something? Doubtless
the explanation given In yesterday
morning's Tribune points to the real
controlling consideration In making this
appointment. Large sums of money are
under the control of tho secretary con
stantly, and the bank which has the de
posit of this money can afford to pay
well for its use. Whatever becomes of
the money so paid by the bank favored,
the public treasury docs not get It.
The sum so constantly on hand Is
stated at something like eighty thou
sand dollars. It Is made up of advance
payments by those who take up State
lands, to bo paid back to the applicant
if the filing is abandoned, or to apply
on the purchase price In case the land Is
finally taken. It Is held that theBe pre
liminary payments ca;inot be ( turned
over to the State Treasury, because It
would then take an act of the Legisla
ture to get It out. This Is true; but
possibly that might not be an Insupera
ble objection. Even were It found so,
however, there seems to be no reason
why the law Bhould not provide that
any sum paid by a bank for the use of
ouch deposit must be paid Into the pub
lic treasury, rather than be paid to the
secretary or to members of the State
The salary of the secretary of this
Board Is cightocn hundred dollars a
year. It Is manifest that no such
scramble as Is now on for that position
eoiild arise with respect to an office If
that sum only were at stake. Yet it
was the evident intention of tho law
that the salary fixed was to be full
compensation to the secretary. It Is
clearly the duty of the coming session
of tho Legislature to ?o amend the law
that the salary of this office shall be Its
only revenue for the services of tho In
cumbent; and that any money which
comes In "on the side" shall be turned
over to the State Treasurer for the
benefit of tho public.
THE PRINCIPLE INVOLVED.
In the school election that is to be
held the day after tomorrow It Is im
portant to keep In mind the principle
Involved, the highest principle that can
be at stake in the course of public edu
cation. Thai principle Is the absolute non
sectarianism of the schools, in all re
spects; in the employment of the teach
ers, In the, work these teachers do, In
the course of Instruction, In the em
ployment of Janitors, in the letting of
cnnlrncts nf nvni-ir .wi i n n. ..
wfc .,., j iniiu, uuii in me uai; i
of the schqolhouscs.
The Mormon propaganda for the af
fixing of so-called "religious classes"
upon the public school system has been
fully exposed In The Tribune. That
propaganda Includes the use of the
public school buildings for those
classes; the teaching of the classes by
tho public school teachers; the use of
the public lights nnd fuel during the
sessions, and the retention for Mormon
doctrinal Instruction of children who
have been assembled In the schools
pursuant to a law which compels their
attendance for public school purposes.
All this propaganda Is clearly a di
rect and cumulative violation of the
law, whose provisions nrohibiflnc nnv
sectarian meddling with or intrusion
into the public schools we have fully
pointed out, by quoting the law Itself.
Now, tho people of this city are
threatened with precisely these evils,
which prevail generally throughout tho
State. If the people here endorse at
this Immediate election the bi-partisan
ticket put up at the Instigation of the
church organ, and defended by It alone,
then tho fanatics who have this Mor
mon school work In hand, and which
they are perfectly organized to push,
will naturally conclude that they are
endorsed, and that they have the peo
ple's leave to pursue the same en
croachments hero that they have made
effective elsewhere. In other words,
they will pursue tho Mormonlzlng of
the public schools of this city to the
same extent as In. other places where
things have reached such a pass that
none but Mormon teachers can be cm-nlovert.
Already thlsfprocess of seclarianlzlng
the schools has made unpleasant pro
gress here. In the present Board of
Education, with which the church or
gan expresses such profound content,
the committees are so made up that the
Mormon members have absolute control
of all the teachers, both for employment
and for direction, and have the entire
shaping of the course of Instruction
and the administration of the work of
the schools. They also have, by the
same manipulation of the committees,
the entire control of the employment
and work of the janitors, and of the
So that if the voters endorse the
church programme at this election and
elect the bi-partisan candidates, the
machinery of the Board Is perfectly
prepared to introduce quietly and with
out any chance of opposition the same
sort of "religious classes" that the Mor
mon propaganda has Introduced gen
erally throughout the State, making the
public school buildings the places in
which they shall be held, and the pub
lic school teachers the instructors In
them, in which case all such teachers
would necessarily have to belong to the
church whose dogmas were being Incul
HOW "THEY" FIND OUT.
y An "old subscriber who has been
urged by an ecclesiastical superior to
cease taking The Salt Lake Tribune,"
appears to have judged the case accord
ing to the facts and the logic.
He, like many others of his faith, con
tinues to read, and be enlightened by,
And now that we ore assured of his
continued support. In common with the
support of most of our old friends, and
a rapidly-growing list of new friends,
It may not be amiss to call the attention
of all to one of the distinctive missions
of The Salt Lake Tribune. It was es
tablished In this community to vojee a
protest which otherwise would have
been dumb. Through Its more than
one-third of a century of life, It has
combined the wide general work of a
newspaper in which unqualified suc
cess has been achieved with the con
tinuous utterance of a protest against
conditions which were violative of
American sentiment. Strange as it may
appear, the vast body of the Mormon
church, which church has an organ of
its own, has to look to The Salt Lake
Tribune, not only for Information, but
for defense. It has been The Tribune
that has told tho truth for them and to
Yes, "old subscriber, the work has
