THE CITY'S SPLENDID GROWTH
Tho now directory boa.rs important
and omphatic testimony to tho impor
tance and tho benefits of American rule
in this city. It has all along bcn mani
fest nnd has boon conceded by nil ex
cept bigoted and pro.judicrd fanatics,
thnl, Salt Lako Cit' never has and nover
could have, such a good advortisemont,
so attractive to settlors and to capital,
as tho announcement of tho American
party triumph at tho polls at the muni
cipal election in Novomber JAOfi.
Right thon this city sprang to the
front, put on vigorous lifo and growth,
and has expanded magically in popula
tion and busiuoss under tho benign aus
pices of tho American party adminis
tration. And now tho dirbctory brings
proof of this great, growth. In 905
there wero 40,430 names in tho direc
tory; in 1006, (the first yonr of Ameri
can control) thero were 42,905; in 1907,
when the full benofits of American con
trol had como to popular realization,
On tho usual basis of reckoning, Mr.
Cooper, of tho Polk Company, gives tho
population of this city at 93,302, and of
this ;ity and its immodiatc environs
There was an increaso of names in
tho directory pf 9500 this year, compar
ed with last. This represents an in
crease of 16,(530 in tho population of
this city in a single year, as computed
by Mr. Cooper.
This is a splendid and gratifying in
crease. It is excelled only by tho gain
in bank clearances, which shows for
the two 3'oars a gain in July's increase
of 113.3 por cent.
Let those-who have been assailing tho
American party on various false and
dofnmatory charges take notice of these
exhilarating figures. Let them noto that
nothing so great in growth nnd popula
tion was cvor known in this city before.
Let them contrast this magnificent
growth with the lethargy that prcyailcd
under tho Morris administration, un
der which tho city actually lost ground,
and then say, if they daro in the face
of the facts and the evidence, that thero
is no credit to be given to the American
party for tho glorious change in Salt
WHY FOLYQAMISTS ESCAPE.
Tmagiuing that it has delivered the
fatal body blow, tho Descret News asks,
concerning polygnmists, "Is it thoy
who fill the jails and occupy the atten
tion of the courts?"
No. And tho News knows tho why
nnd the wherefore of that condition
here in this State. It is a matter of
common information here in Utah that
no officer of tho law will arrest a polyg
amous offender, because of foar that
tho vengeance of tho priesthood -will
cast him out of his place and pursuo
him to destruction, if possible. Like
wise, it is every-day knowledge in this
community that no court dares lo do
its full duty toward this same class,
for tho reason that the political power
of the much-married high priests is con
stantly held ovor the judicial head as
a menacing club of revenge. The po
lygamists are lawbreakers, according to
the testimony of the chief of them all,
and j-ct there is none of thorn in any
present danger of apprehension". They
do not "fill tho jails," although there
arc enough of them to overrun these
institutions. They do not "occupy the
attention of the courls," notwithstand
ing the fact that if tho executive and
judicial officers of this State were in a
position to give to them the attention
which is their just due, there would
have to be a general suspension of other
court business for a long time to come.
During tho period of the prosecutions
under the Edmunds law, the polygamists
took up tho most of the time oi tho
courts, and they filled the penitentiary.
With free and fearless courts and court
officials, it would be no trouble to fill
tho jails with polygamists now.
But, entrenched in the fortification sur
rendered to thorn in Statehood, under
tho most sacredly-solemn promise to
mend their evil and lecherous ways, the
polygnmists of j.he Mormon church hurl
defiance against the law into the very
teeth of the courls. They havo the po
litical power; thoy use it unmercifully
ami tyrannically; and they koep out
of the courts and out of jail where
they certainly bolong.
But when tho polygamist is brought
face-lo-face with tho law nnd tho con
sequences of his misbohavior, noto the
hypocritical cringing; tho squirming
and wrifcrling; the pretended loyalty;
the wonderful consideration which ho
displays for Christian sentiment. On
Novomber 23, 1006, Joseph F. Smith,
president and prophet, seer and re vela
tor of the Mormon church, appeared be
fore the Third District Court in this
city, in the criminal division, to receive
Bunlenoo for his "unmoral offending
against tho law. He pleaded, in part,
I have never flaunted my family re
lations before tho public, nor have I felL
a spirit of defiance against tho law,
but, ori the contrary. I havo alwnyn
desired to ho a lawabldlng citizen. In
conHlderinff tho trying: position In which
I have been placed. I trust that your
honor will exercise fsuch leniency. In
your sentence, as lav nnd justice will
Wonderfully humblo was ho at that
tiuifi. Aud how solicitous in the pro
tection of tho public scnBc of decency!
feut this same Smith biros a man by
tho name of Roberts, and payH htm out
of mouoj's purloined from his poor fol
lowcro. Roberts is employed for the
Smith general purpose- of inculcating
fraud und deception. Upon occasion,
when ordered to do so by Utah's chiuf
law breaker, he speaks for the mon who
do not "fill tho jnils," nnd who do not
"occupy tho attention of tho courts."
In the most prominent plnco provided
by tho Smith cult, for public gather
ings, this is what this man Roberts
ronred forth to the world a short time
Though the church proclaimed against
this continuance of this relationship,
though tho State proclnlmcd against It,
neither tho church nor the State may
absolve tho moral obllgntlon3 thut I am
under, or release me from that moral
Roberts was referring to tho practice
of polygamous living, on account of
which Smith had previously been fined
throe hundred dollars. And all tho
while the prophot sat behind his
"mouth," rubbing his hands in un
holy glee; smirking insult at tho com
munity; grinning protected defianco of
tho law; nodding satisfied approval of
"Is it thoy who fill tho jails and
occupy the attention of tho courts?"
No, indeed, no. But it is merely be
cause thoy arc able to compel that con
dition. Por no othor reason on earth.
And tho News knows this.
A BRIGADE POST.
Tho Tribune has constantly urged
that Port Douglas bo made a brigade
post. In the old days of tho West, it
was necessary to scatter tho avnilablo
troops in small detachments, seldom
more than a few compnnieo at any one
post, and in many casos much loss,
in order to protect tho settlors
and freighters against the Indians. Tho
oxtcnt of country to cover was so great
that it was impossiblo to do othcrwiso
than that, in order to protect all stra
tegic points with the small military es
tablishment which tho Nation main
tained'. But with the settling up of the coun
try, tho herding of the Indians on the
reservations, and the occupancy of tho
ranges by tho cattle companies, there
came a chaugo in the policj' of tho
Government which is only now being
put into full practical effect. Tho
smaller posts aro being abandoned; it
is no longer necessary to keep them
up. The troops (now moro thnn double
tho old force) are being conccntratod
in larger posts, and these are-selected
with a viow to their locality and stra
tegic value in case of a sudden call
for servico in any direction; and also
with a view to their salubrity and the
economy of maintaining them.
In all of the points desirable to con
sider in making tho best selections,
Fort Douglas must stand well at the
head of tho list of nvailablo points. It
has commodious grounds, ample for all
purposes of a brigade. It is unrivaled
in salubrity and beauty of location; uo
malaria is posaiblo there, and it is suf
ficiently removed from all centers of
po6siblo contagion or infection. Its
strategic imporlanco will bo at onco
evident to any oue who will consult
the map. Troops thero are almost ex
actly central front navigable waters, to
the eastward, and tho Pacific ocean to
tho westward. Thoy could be called in
either direction, and to any noeded
point, with tho minimum of delay. It
is the same north or south; railroads
extend in both directions, and a sud
den call could take the command any
where in either direction, as fast as
steam could convoy them. Such a com
bination of advantages is not commonly
found, and we aro certain thut in tho
consolidation programme, Fort Doug
las cannot be overlooked. It is in
fact the best poiut for all purposes,
and on all accounts, west of Denver.
Major-Goneral Bell is to bo hero soon,
it is announced. Probabl3r his coming
bodies of men, and in practice such
tho placing of tho troops in permanent
and largo camps. Ho favors this con
solidation because it will give the of
ficers opportunities in handling large
bodies of men, and in practice with
as would bo serviceablo to them in cam
paigns and battles whqre armies wero
engaged. There is no question but such
practice would bo of immense value.
And it is fortunate for the army that
tho conditions in this Western country
allow of the breaking up of tho small
and scattered garrisons, which gavo no
chance for the larger warlike opera
tions and practice, coincide with tho
desire for that consolidation and prac
tice. And General Boll will find in
Fort Douglas thq ideal spot where such
operations and praclico could bo had
upon any scale desired, up to the tac
tics and exercises of a brigade. Wo
believe, therefore, that he will have no
difficulty in reaching the conclusion thnt
Fort Douglas is prociscly the spot he
may be looking for, for a brigade post.

TEXAS INSURANCE LEGISLATION.
Tho Legislnturo of the Slato of Texas
at its recent session pnsscd a law re
quiring that insurance companies must
invest sevont.y-fivo per cent of the Texas
surplus from their business in that
Sffato. At tho samo timo, the Stato did
not nssuro that tho companios should
bo provided with any guarantee that
tho investments would bo safe or that
tho returns from them would equal in
vestments that might bo made in other
fiolds. It did not even ufford any
surety that the investments should
either pny a good interest or bo safe,
or thnt. thoy should bo roalizablo xipon
in cnuh at any timo tho companios might
need tho money. That. Legislature also
required that tho securities in which
the insurance companies invest should
bo dopositcd with the State, and that
tho State should tax them at a rnto
which the companios claim to bo al
most as high as tho incomo yield would
be from tho securities so invested in;
tho Stato all this timo giving no se
curity to tho companj' for tho invest
ment, nnd no guaranteo of any sure re
turn on tho investment, lot alono for
tho safety of it.
It is not surprising that this sort of
legislation has stirred up tho insurnnco
companies. Tho Prudential, of Now
ark, for instanco, has issued a long cir
cular to its Texas policj'-holders an
nouncing its determination to withdraw
from tho Stato of Texas, and explain
ing tho reason why it withdraws. 'It
is alleged that other insurnnco com
panies will follow the example of the
Prudential, it being claimed by sound
insurnnco mon that it would bo abso
lutely impossiblo to do a safe insuranco
business under tho restrictions, limita
tions, and requirements of this new
Texas law, called tho Robertson bill.
If it is true that insuranco companios
could not transact thoir business under
that law, of course all of thorn will
havo to withdraw from that Slate, or
will havo to make their business thero
a sort of handicap; tho disabilities
thcroin imposed to bo made good out
of the policy-holders in other States
whcro no such hostile legislation has
been enacted. Cloarlj' this would bo
unfair to those other policy-holders, and
it would bo an unjust discrimination
against them and in favor of tho Texas
On the other hand, if it is true that
any sound insuranco company can do
business in Texas under the now law,
tho Prudential should bo ablo to do it.
And if other companies can do busi
ness in Toxas under that legislation
,thcy can do business in other Statos
under similar legislation.
The necessary deduction from the con
tinuance of any insurance company in
business in Texas will be that tho Texas
law is not necessarily fatal to the op
erations of insurance companies iu that
State. Texas will therefore derive very
great benefit from this law, and tho in
surance companies will bo in ado to yield
that benefit. Tho only way in which
insurance companTos can demonstrate to
othor States that they ought not to fol
low the cxamplo of Texas is to declaro,
as tho Prudential has dono, that they
cannot do business in that State, and
withdraw. If thoy continue thero, it
will be a confession that tho Pruden
tial has taken action prejudicial to its
own interests and to the interest of tho
insuranco business by withdrawing from
Texas. And if these other companies
continue doing business thero it will bo
a diroct invitation to othor States to
pass like legislation..
Of course, just now there is a good
deal of outcry against the Texas law.
It looks to us as though the require
ments aro more hostilo to the insur
ance companios than thc3' need be. But
if any insurance companies can stand
them and live and thrive, then clearly
other States should follow the examplo
of Texas and derive as much benefit
from tho insuranco business done within
their boundaries as thoy can. It is
simply a question of whether the in
suranco companies will do business in
Toxas or not. Tf they do, thon Texas
is all right. If they do not, Texas will
havo to haul in its horns and mate
rially niodif- its present statute. But
if any sound insurance 'companies can
stand it lo do business in Texas under
that law, then other States will hasten
to pass like legislation, for the benefits
it will 3'ield.

holiday by statutory enactment, after
bolntr enshrined In the hearts of the peo
ple as such' for many years. The day
will be observed by all clascs cither by
public demonstration or privately as the
people may choose. It Is flttlnp lo ob

the plodding ox, horse and mule team,

mile stretch of mountain and plain from
tho Missouri to the Great Salt Lako,
twenty-one years before the rushing train
awakened tho echoes In Echo canvon.
Wo arc slad to noto that speakers "are
much more temperate than formerly. In
their oratorical pyrotechnics, when refer
ring to the "trials and persecutions"
which "caused the saints to llee to the
Rocky mountains for safety." We think
it Is well to cut that all out. There Is
ample room for oratorical apostrophe and
poetic effusion when referring to the pio
neers, without extenuating, neither "set
tine down naught In malice."
The Mormons came to Utah in a per
fectly natural way. the coming being tho
result of a combination of events and dr.

WOODMEN SPARE TREE.
At all times pains should be taken to
spare the trees. It Is common to cut
down flno ones when thoy Interfere In
somo small degree with the plans of
engineers, but destruction should be
avoided unless it is absolutely necessary
to apply the ax. A tree may Intrude
upon the sidewalk considerably without
its presence being an obstruction, or a
row might stand beyond tho curb line ns
established. In one case the wulk may
be laid around the tree, while In the
other tho line of tho curb can be changed
to save tho tree. It requires a genera
tion to grow a nno tree, but only half
an hour to make an end of lu The trees
aro tho pride of the city, and none should
be removed that can be spared. They
have a priority of right that should al

AS TO COAL FAMINE.
Bolso Capital News.
The report of the chief of the fire de
partment made to the City Council last
week, that he had been unable to secure
a coal supply so far for next winter,
serves to emphasize the admonition that
the Capital News has been giving, that
Uture ia the gravest danger of a coal
famine and that every precaution ought
to be taken, not only by citizens, but by
coal dealers, to provide against it.
The dealers ought to bo Insistent on
securing from the coal companies every
pound of coal that can be secured, and
the people of tho city ought to see to It
that the dealers are not allowed to have
a pound of surplus coal on hand which
could be purchased and stored An the bins
for winter use. .
The reports sent out from "Washington
and published today show that lhe dan
ger threatening this section of the coun
try is real and not Imnglnarv.
At least, oven If It be contended that
the railroads and coal companies are
holding back the supply for sinister mo
tives and thnt they could furnish the
coal if they wished, it must still bo ad
mitted that they have It within their
power to carry out the plan If they have
any such plan, and people will have to
submit to the Inevitable and purchase Just
as they have opportunity, which Is when
ever any coal can be bought.
