I Among the endowments of some of
the high church officials, is a liberal
supply of assurance,
It having been shown that there is
much rich ore at Bullfrog, that camp
will now leap forward.
Mr. Sutherland does not expect to re
ceive the Inst of his presents until about
the middle of January.
Mrs. Chadwlck is ill in Jail, probably
feeling the need of the exercise she has
enjoyed working bankers.
Christmas comes but once a year, and
there are perplexed, gift-buying men
who are mean enough to be glad of it.
How can Prof. Hyntt expect to he

Wherever he is, Trof. Tanner, being

best to make Christmas a happy day
for the girls.
Everybody of course regards a Christ

If you wish to learn how much power
is stored in a ton of coal, send one
to a very poor family before Christmas,
and note the resulting Joy.
Apostle Smoot does not know whether
he can remain a Senator, himself, but
he is sure ,that he cannot be deprived
of his right to make Senators.
I In the annual message of Mayor Mor
ris will be found no doubt aa interest

abated the smoke nuisance.
Possibly, the defense will prove that

Santa. Claus being tender-hearted,
should not a special effort be made
to see that he is not shocked by the

Brother Penrose told such part of
the truth as was already known in
Washington, but ho will atone for it
when, he returns to his editorial duties.

Having heard that Christmas is a
great day of peace, the Japs are making

Arthur on that day by capturing the

Is there not danger that some one
who does not Know that the committee
wants those Temple records, will Inad
vertently carry them away, and forget
where he has put them?
Perhaps Apostle Smoot felt that it
would not be In good taste to object to
the elevation of a man to an apostle
shlp who was better qualified than him
self, having two wives.
While they are not Presbyterians,
most of the members of the Legislature
are willing to show that so far ae tho
Senatorship Is concerned they accept
"the doctrino of foreordlnallon.
Apostle John Henry says he would
make a complaint against anyone per-
forming a plural marriage ceremony,
provided he saw the ceremony. But
would he not be careful not to see tho
A SERMON OF FOLLY.
A returned missionary president of
the dominant church, a man who af
fects to be highly cultured, stated In
his sermon Sunday night that one of
the most gratifying blessings that had
ever come to tho church and Its mem
bers was the election of Apostle Heed
Smoot to the Senate and the conse
quent investigation which has followed
upon that event.
That kind 6f declaration Is so silly
and false that it would not deserve
attention, but being made to a congre
gation of zealots, old and young, It
misleads them Into views and positions
concerning a public matter from which
views they will eventually retreat and
from which positions they must recede.
First, as to the silliness of tho ut
terance: Practically without disagree
ment, in private conversation, all of tho
leading eccleslasts of the church admit
that the election of Reed Smoot was
a mistake. They aso betray thl3 feel
ing so frequently In their public utler
anco by their attacks upon all who can
be suspected of active sympathy with
the Investigation, as that their view
Is known of all men. It is silly for a
preacher to assort that great bcnellt
has come from the election and investi
gation, when the leaders of the church
are filled with mingled rage and horror
as they contemplate the situation; when
prominent men have been compelled to
exile thmsclves from the country;
when eminent eccleslasts have been
forced to drag their family affairs into
the light of day; and when all the can
ards about Utah In all the past, all put
together, have never equaled In sensa
tionalism and in annoyance tho story
which has been detailed on the witness
stand at Washington during this same
Second, as to the falsity of the utter
ance: Unless the complete destruction
of the church Is to be deemed a grati
fying blessing to the church and its
people; or unless its disrepute before
all the worid Is such; or unless the de
gradation of Us leading men, w-ho made
such prevarication and such stunning
admissions as to enrage the whole coun
try, Is such; there Is nothing but un
truth as well as silliness in the zealous
preacher's declaration. The church has
been exposed to the scorn of the public.
Its people, most of whom 'live in Utah,
find that their political rights have been
endangered Statehood being now in
absolute jeopardy. The president and
apostles have testified that they were
."living In defiance of the laws of God
and man." The peace and good will
entertained toward the church and Its
adherents by the Government and the
people of tho United States have been
changed to wrath which will not end
until it shall have consumed the of
The missionary president, In his ser
mon, threatened all who are opposing
Apostle Smoot and the church leaders,
with punishments on earth because of
their attitude In this matter. He must
have been a very poor reader' of his
tory. It Is within the memory of most
men of middle age in this community
that, year after year, during nearly a
generation just such zealots as he con
signed the Government and people of
the United States to the bottommost
depths of the bottomless pit. Every
time a President or a Congress in the
nation, or a governor, or a Judge, or a
marshal, or a district attorney in Utah,
signed or passed or adjudicated or ex
ecuted any offensivo measure In any
offensive way against the Mormon peo
ple, anathema was pronounced upon the
offending personsand upon the Nation
itself. How often was the declaration
made that the cup of this country's
Iniquity was full to overflowing and
God would now avenge His saints'
And yet It was all empty breath; and
when amnesty and Statehood were de
sired, the very men who had been most
hated became the most courted by the
church. The chief glory on this earth
of the Mormon people is the power
whlchr(,hey are enabled to exercise in
the world because God Ignored these
predictions and did not destroy the Na
tion for "persecuting His servants."
THE GREAT LAND FRAUD CASES.
It is an unpleasant rumor that comes
from Portland, to the effect that the
United States omclals are after the In
stigators of the conspiracy to defraud
the Government in- respect to entries
of public lands, and lhat this is con
sidered so important as to cause the
giving out In advance of the informa
tion that some of the criminals already
convicted are to be accorded practical
Immunity in case they will show the
real conspirators. It is a pretty high
price to pay, but probably the ofllcials
Know what they are about; and cer
tainly the whole truth should be
brought forth to light. The unpleasant
feature In it Is to think that it should
be thought worth while to pay such a
price; It must be that big game Is
afoot, In order to make It worth while
to take this course.
In the same connection it Is mentioned
that U. S. Senator Mitchell of Oregon
and Representative Blnger Hermann
of the samo State have started from
Washington to meet charges against
them In these cases. Both declare their
innocence, and both demand the privi
lege of appearing before the grand jury
to exculpate themselves.
We trust that they may be able com
pletely to clear themselves, fo"Mt would
be intolerable to see men in their ox
altdd positions caught in such a fraud.
It would be especially singular and
atrocious if it were found that Mr. Her
mann were connected in any acquies
cing way in this sort of work, for ho
was Commissioner of the General Land
Office from 1897 to 1903, and as such his
conduct was bound not only to be hon
orable and faithful toward tho Govern
ment, but above suspicion. It would
be a cruel, blow, a crushing humiliation,
upon our public service to And that he
had In any way proved unfaithful to
his trust, to say nothing of his being
implicated in any conspiracy to defraud
The announcements made by both of
the gentlemen, protesting their Inno
cence, are proper and timely; but It Is
a thousand pities that they have to be
made at all, and It will be a public ca
lamity if they shall be found to be un
UTAH'S VJCTORY IN THE DEBATE.
Utah's senior Senator hos attracted
considerable attention by the very able
way In which he 'met an opponent of
no mean skill on last Friday. Senator
Kcarns shows not' only the advantage
of practical training, but ho demon-'
stratcs possession of the quality that
utilizes information. 1
The papers generally have been not
ing the combat of argument and the
victory achieved by our senior Senator,
and the people of Utah particularly offer
to him their congratulations upon hav
ing secured justice for the miner and
prospector in the Philippines.
JUDGE LOOFBOUROW'S DEATH.-
The death of Judge C. F. Loofbourow
will be deeply felt and widely mourned.
He was an old resident, of tho city, a
prominent attorney, and a man of up
right, sturdy character. His most con
spicuous service here was In acting as
Master in Chancery, on the appointment
of the Territorial Supreme Court, to take
testimony and report aa to the most ad
vantageous disposition to make of the
money then in tho hands of Receiver
Henry W. Lawrence,' obtained from
sales' of escheated church property, un
der the Congressional enactment W 1SS7.
Mr. Loofbourow took this testimony on
October 10 and 20, 1S91. It was of sen
sational interest, in that the chief men
of the Mormon church were called, and
gave most significant testimony as to
the meaning of the Woodruff manifesto,
testimony which those who now claim
that the church leaders should live up
to- their pledges and protestations of
that time find of utmost importance.
Among those who testified were Presi
dent Woodruff, President Snow, and
President Joseph F. Smith. Each and
every one of them gave the most direct
testimony that the manifesto required
the giving up not only of polygamous
marriages, but of giving up the entire
polygamous relation unlawful cohabi
tation, as It was termed in the law.; All
acknowledged the binding force of, the
manifesto upon them, but now we have
the brazen confession from President
Smith and others that it didn't bind
them at all, in spite of their oaths that
It was a high and Important service
that Judge Loofbourow rendered In that
examination. And he conducted himself.
In such a manner In it, as he has done
in all the walks of life, as to win the
respect ond esteem of all who have come
In contact with him". The world can 111
spare the life and example of such a
man as Judge Loofbourow. In his death,
his family have the sincere sympathy
of this whole community.
ALL FOR PENROSE.
The flood of newspaper comment on
the Smoot case is again In full volume:
and most of It is uncomplimentary to
Utah. Nearly all of the papers agree
that Mr. Smoot himself has, as he al
leges for himself, "led a perfectly pure
life." but very few of them hold him
guiltless of responsibility for that "vio
lation of the laws of God and man"
which has been so defiantly confessed
by his apostolic associates. What a
joke it would bo If Smoot were to be
thrown out of the Senate on account of
Penrose's breaking of the amnesty
A WOMAN'S JOKE.
The talented women of the Society
for Political Study, which met In New
York last week, have succeeded In
breaking the gloom of the Smoot case
with one ray of sunshiny fun.
First, they took the doctrino of the
church of which Mr. Smoot Is an apos
tle, and assumed from It that unmar
ried women are destined to go to hades;
then they piled upon this their own
very reasonable conclusion that no man
would go to heaven; and that lswherc
they gave everybody an opportunity to
laugh. In the hereafter, then, the mar
ried women and the widows, who have
occupied the attention of the men In
this world, will have none of It; and
greatly to their own gratification, no
doubt, for they know what men are,
and they know how taxing It would be
upon tho powers of the Alhvise to main
tain a heaven where any of the male
sex were permitted to enter. Als6, the
dear unmarried women, who have not
suffered the conjugal burden, would
perhaps be willing to accept the men
as fellow-citizens even in hades, not
knowing what -a hopeless lot they are.
Possibly, too, there Is another explana
tion: From the woman's view-point,
any place Is heaven where men are
not; and any place is hades where men
Without wishing-to be invidious, The
Tribune begs to call the attention of
all the unmarried ladles who accept
the jocular conclusion that they will
go to hades, and that all the men will
be there, that one Tanner Is Included
In the destined population of the hot
place. Naturally, he would be there
under this combination ot doctrines;
but oven if It were not pronounced
upon him, it may well be assumed that .
