THE- BINGHAM TRAGEDY.
Whenever thcro is a distressful
tragedy involving tho death by acci
dont or through lack of duo caution,
of a number of human creatures,
thcro is, when tho liko happens in this
country, almost certain to bo some
heroic figure emerge, as a credit to his
race and a splendid example of un
daunted bravery and sacrifice. In tho
tragedy of Saturday night at Bingham,
there was not lacking tho heroic figure
that one is led to expect on, such
occasions. That figuro was the young
man, Kent Smith, general foreman of
tho Utah Copper mines, in the lower
workings of which tho denths occurred.
Mr. Smith had given warning of the
wwiii i.&vfii .in iujouU ivuvnu no
"damp," in that part of the mine, and
had, as ho supposed, effcctually
warncd all tho workmen from going
down there. One, however, either not
getting this warning or not heeding it,
went into that dangerous place. Mr.
Smith, an oxpcricnccd miner and bravo
to tho point of rashness, as appears
from his act, went in after this unheed
ing or reckless minor, in tho hope
of saving his life. Instead, he" lost his
own. And two other bravo men, fol
lowing his lead on tho liko errand of
mercy aa to himself, nlEo lost their
lives. Tt was a distressful calamity,
but it brought forth the heroic human
feeling which leads to tho sacrifice of
life for the rcscuo of another. And Mr.
Kent Smith stands forth as the horo
of this tragedy. His memory should
bo revered as such, and it should long
bo quoted as a shining oxamplo of un
shrinking fortitude in tho scrvico of
the call of humanity, to say nothing of
It appears that the air compressor
was disabled, and could not clear tho
foul air from that part of tho work
ings; therefore the danger warning was
given. No doubt thcro will bo an in
vestigation with a view of fixing tho
resnnnsibilitv for this tratredv where
it belongs. Perhaps no responsibility
can ever be fixed, but the investigation
should be had, just tho same; and all
possible facts brought to light. It is
difficult always to prevent occasional
loss of lifo in mines. But. every pos
sible precaution should be taken for
such preventions. Mining companies
are usually alert and alivo to this, and
they do their very best to avert the
loss of life in this way. The fact that
these efforts arc not always effective
is due to several causes; among tho
most potent of which may be named
the recklessness of- tho minors and tho
failure to get or souse tho warning
that is sent out, as it was sent in this
case. It is a lamentable tragedy all
around, ono to be most deeply deplored.
MINING RIGHTS AND FORESTRY.
"We have from Mr. Cifford Pinchot,
chief of the National Forestry service,
an article in refutation of certain
strictures upon the acts of that service,
mado in tho editorial columns of tho
Denver Posi. That portion of Mr.
Pinchot 's answer which refers to tho
location of mines ou forestry reserves
is. of general interest. Tho Post had
charged that prospectors were denied
permission to stake claims on the forest
reserve?. To this Mr. Pinchot makes
this conclusive reply:
Tho fact Is that no regulation of the
Forest Service has ov?r denied iho right
of any prospector to stako a claim, whero
and as he chose. In any National Fores.t
in the Stato of Colorado or elscvhor No
prospector has any need to ask permission
of any ono to stake claims in the Xa
tlonnl Forests. Tho law of June 1. 1897.
quoted on pago 216 of tho last edition of
' Tho Use Book," saya: "Nor shall any
thing1 herein prohibit any person from en
tering upon pud) forcct reservations for
all proper and lawful purposes Including
that of prospecting, locating, and devel
oping the mineral resources thereof:
Provided, That such persons comply with
tho rules and regulations covering ruch
forest reservation:1." No rules and regu
lations of the Forest Scrvico have ever
interfered with the right to prospect, lo
catf. and develop mineral claims. Tho
Forest Service has done its best to mako
tho law ami the regulations known by
printing them in tho manual which tells
how to use the National Forests.
Even If the Forest Service desired to
prevent prospecting in the National For
esl5. and It emphatically does not. Jt
could not do so under tho law. If amy
Format officer has ever undertaken to pre
vent prospecting in Colorado or else
where, ho was himself breaking the law
and disobeying tho regulations of Ui
Forest Service, and no such case has
ever ben brought to my attention.
The fact that tho forests of Colorado
arc freely open lo prospecting may bo
verified In a mompnt by reference to the
statutes of tho United States. Tho has
tiest consultation of accessible authorities
would havo prevented any mistake. So
far from tho National Forosta of Colo
rado being closi'd to prospecting, numer
ous mineral locations have been and will
continue to bo made In them, as the
mining men of Colorado well know.
And further, in regard to the control
of mining rights. Mr. Pinchot shows
that everything relating thereto, includ
ing tho issuing of patents, in in tho
hands of the Secretary of the Interior,
tho forestry scrvico having nothing to
do with that matter in any of its
phases, save only as thus explained:
The Forest Smv1o has never denied a
patent lo any mineral claim In anV Na
tional Forest, nor declared the sami! to bo
invalid, for It has no right to An ho. But
it Is the duty of the Forest Service, un
der the law. to report to t!w Department
of the Interior, upon It? request, tho ac
tual facts on tho ground concerning any
claim or' location wllhln a National For
;rt. to enablo tile Deparlmoht of the In
terior to form n. judgment as to tho va
lidity of auch claim or location. The De
partment of thf InteVior terms that Judg
ment and acts upon it tun Forest Serv
ice merely report Much facts as it finds.'
It la not thy judge, hut merely a witnena
in the capo.
Two further poiuts aro made clear by
Mr. Pinchot in tho following para
The Forest Service has had charge of
the National Forests since February 1
1005. something less than jfour yuars.
During that tlmo-lho Foreat Service, as
already explained, has neither appro rod

Thoro hns boon inquiry, from timo to
timo aa to tho rights of minora ou tho
forest reserves; and an impression has
prevailed that those rights aro moro or
loss restricted (hereon. But it" appears
from the tone of Mr. Pinchot 's circular,
and from tho explicit declarations in
tho paragraphs quoted from it above,
that tho rights of prospectors in lo

aro tho same on tho forest reserves as
on any other portion of the public
SCHOOL CONVENTIONS TONIGHT.
Tho American school conventions to
bo held in tho different wards of this
city tonight for the nomination of
candidates for members of tho board
of education, should receive tho hearty
and enthusiastic attendance or tno
school-Ioviug population of this city.
Those conventions will doubtless mako
conspicuously good nominations, and in
tho hand3 of these nominocs tho schools
will bo much improved over tho pres
ent; management. We commend to all
of the frco people of this city that tboy
devoto their timo tonight from eight
o'clock onward, as much as is neces
sary, to the doing of tho patriotic work
involved in making theso school nom
inations. It is ono of tho singular impositions
of tho timo that tho partisan adherents
of the church-controlled schools should,
with such stupendous impudence, claim
that they arc nonpartisans. They aro
tho bitterest partisans of the. city. It
is they who insist, under tho name of
nonpartisans, in keeping tho schools
strictly in tho partisan control of tho
church. Tn the First ward "nonparti
san" convention of last "Wednesday
evening, it was openly claimed that
"wo" (moaning tho Mormon church
party) wero determined to have their .
man on tho school board. The free peo
ple of this city havo had an example I
or two of the way in which these non
partisan conventions, so called, aro
held. "When tho nonpartisan convention
met a fow years ago in tho First ward
tho nomination mado did not suit the
Mormon partisan nonpartisans; they,
therefore, held a "nonpartisan" con
vention of their own, and nominated
their partisan candidate. That is to
say, uoupartisanship is a mere sham
and cloalc under which the bitter church
partisanship docs its work. Tho real
nonparlisanship is that involved in the
American movomcnt which is backed by
tho mass of tho school-loving popula
tion of this city, and that is the control
which ought to bo exorcised in the
schools of this city in place of the rabid
partisanship involved in tho continued
Wo notice some strictures for a day
or two past in the vile Smoot 'Month'"
and certain falsehoods claimed, with re
spect to a former limnagcmcnt of the
schools when tho present editor of Tho
Tribune was president of tho board. "Wo
dealt with a fow of tho lies on Suuduy
morning from that source. "Wo wero
somewhat puzzled to know what that
old 'management, which did the best it
could and mado a brilliant success in
tho starting of tho modern school sys
tem of this city, had to do with the
present conditions. That was a real
nonpartisan control. Tho present is a
moro sham nonpartisan control. Yester
day morning, however, it was developed
that the reason for that attack was be
cause of tho fear which was created by
tho wholly unwarranted notion that tho
present editor of The Tribune would
liko to bo returned to the school board.
This is something that has had no
foundation at an' time, because he has
from tho first stated that under no cir
cumstances would ho cousenfc to bo a
candidate, and thcro has not been and
will not bo any authorized use of his
namo in this connection.
Referring to tho alleged attempt to
set one class of teachers in opposition
to another, wo havo only to say that
wo never heard of any such attempt or
desire. Tho teaching force should be
a harmonious unit, working towards
the one end, with tho utmost good will.
Nothing of that kind i? involved in the
matter of increasing tho salaries for
the grade teachers, bcrauso it vas tho
grado teachers who got this increased
money through their own efforts, and
thoso cfTori wore eudorsed by largo
numbers of tho pcoplo in this city on
tho express condition that tho monoy
so obtained was to apply io tho inoreaso
of the salaries of these grade teachers.
There- is not in this atiy sentiment of
division or hostility, but a plain,
straightforward proposition that those
who get should obtain. But they don't
obtain much after all, because tho do
nial of pay during tho holidays and the
holiday week of Christmas and New
Yoars practically nullifies tho very
small rniu that they have received.
A few of tho lies from tho "Mduth"
wo noted yesterday morning. Another
one in yesterday's "Mouth" is:
Only last week a number of the mem
bers of the school called at the office
of The Tribune. nd tplaine1 every point
against which the Implacable grouch was
railing, ami he ndmltted he was wrong
and they wor right. And th next morn
ing Tho Tribune came out with an even
stronger tirade against the present .man
agement of tho city schools.
It is only necessary to say with re
spect to the abovo that it is a fiction
altogether. No such call was made last;
week, or laBt month, or this month, at
Tho Tribune offlco or elsewhere. Tboro
has been po such explanation, no such'
admission, and there has not "the noxt
morning," or any other time, been in
Tho Trihjuio. anything contrary to an
agreement made by tho editor of Tho
Tribune, lunjimuoh aa thoro was no
such conversation, explanation, or talk,
it is quito impossible that there should

trary to that talk.

MR. HOBSON'S PLEA.
"We havo from tho Hon. Richard Pear
son Hobson, a Representative in Con
gress from tho State of Alabama, "An
Appeal to tho President of the Unitod
States for the Retention of tho Fleet
and for an Adequato Defense in tho
Pacific Ocean." Mr. Hobsoii's inten
tions in this aro undoubtedly patriotic
and commendable. Wo ourselves havo
front time to timo urged as strongly as
possible tho retention of tho fleet in tho
Pacific ocean and tho establishment of
a great naval establishment, with ma
chinery, dry docks, and every accessory
competent to maintain that fleet, build
new ships, and tho mako tho United
States tho great naval power of tho
Pacific ocean, as it ought to be. Tho
coast delegation in Congress has urged
the same view nnon tho President, and
others besides Mr. Hobson in tho East
and South havo taken the same course.
But all in vain. And "retention" is
not tho word to apply now in this ar
gument; "send back" would bo tho
propor words, since tho fleet has al
ready been taken away from the Pacific
ocean and is about to start upon its
homo trip, from the eastern coast of
At tho.samo time, thcro can be no
doubt whatever of tho strength of Rep
resentative Hobson 's appcnl in favor of
tho adequato naval control of tho Pa
cific ocean by the United States. lie
points out the predominance of tho
Japanese, and tho absence of any check
upon Japan's ambitions for tho control
of Asia and for tho control of tho groat
ocean. "We think, however, that Mr.
Hobson's fear of Japan" is to a largo
degree unwarranted; but at tho same
time wo bolievo thero is substantial
reason for having a controlling forco
on tho Pacific ocean capable, not only
of protecting our Western coast but of
maintaining against all assaults our
prestigo in the Pacific and our protec
tion of Hawaii and of tho Philippines.
We do not, anticipato any immediate
danger from Japan, and do not consider
flinf .Tnnnn i in nnv TlOfiition to make
war upon tho United States, or that she
thinks she is. Tt is true that somo of
her leading statesmen look forward to
such a war, and this country ought to
be prepared to meet. it. Tho best pos
siblo preparation for this is to havo an
adequate naval establishment in iho
Pacific, with every deslrablo accessory
and appliance towards maintenance and
increase, at need, of our naval strength
there, convenient at hand on tho West
ern coast, with ample defenses at Pearl
Harbor and Honolulu, and with ade
quate defenses, both by ships and for
tifications, at Manila and in Sifbig bay.
Tho reasons for this aro well set forth
by Representative Hobson, and any one
who will make even a slight study of
tho subject must, it seems to us, agree
that this country should prepare itself
in this way for all emergencies. Tho
Hobson plea is ineffective at present,
but. tho reasons urged iu it are effective,
and are sufficient for all time in sup
port of the position that ho assumes. v
AS TO PHILIPPINE SUGAR.
The incumbency of President Taft-is
likely to sec vigorous efforts in favor
of free trado between tho United
States and tho Philippines. Mr. Taft
has constantl' favored this, and has
often shown that there is no possible
menace to this country in it. His suc
cessor in tho oflico of Governor of tho
Philippines, and also in tho oflico of
Secretary of-War, g.rvo tho House Ways
and Means Committee some important
information on Philippine sugar grow
ing, when ho appenrrd last week be
fore that body. Ho showed that there
is no reason to fear any injury to the
boot sugar industry in this country from
the introduction of Philippino sugar.
For, said he:
It is not possible the Philippine Islands
could support, the actual increaso In de
mand for sugar year by year, in the
United States. In that case there is no
reason why tho Philippino Islands should
affect tho mnrket until the beet and cane
sugar produced within the tariff Wall in
creasca 1,700,000 tons. Beforo Iho beet
sugar Industry Is in the slightest danger
It must Increase from 110,000 tons an
nually to -, 100,000 tons, and from annual
reports it would take fifty years to do
this. I can't sen how It would affect
tho domestic product, if Philippino sugar
were placed for a time on the free list.
Secretary Wright further showed that
tho sugar trust owns 51 per cent of tho
slock of all tho beet sugar factories,
which, he suggests, "may bo tho rea
son why the beet sugar industry in this
country has not grown, rather than tho
importation of Cuban sugar." This is
a very shrewd remark; and it may ac
count fur tho failure to construct a
beet sugar factory at or near Gunni
son in this Slate, after that construction
had been specifically promised by tho
local beet-sugar managers. Indeed, it
was definitely slated at tho timo that
it. was I he Eastern sugar trust interests
that forbade this promised construction
of tho sugar factory near Gunnison.
Secretary Wright in his statement
made it reasonably clear that it is the
sugar trust that is opposing rhe frco
import of Philippine sugar. Thia vic-v7
was reinforced by the testimony of
Claus A. Spreckles, an independent re
finer, who said that -the sugar trust is
tho principal beneficiary under the pres.
ent sugar schedule. "I would bo per
fectly satisfied if you should finally de
cide to agreo upon free trade," said
Mr. Sprocklcs, who was formerly con
victed with the American Sugar Refin
ing company, known as the "sugar
trust," iu both raw and refined sugars.
"I think we are entitled to a moderate
protection on refined sugars, but would
prefer absoluto free trade to the pres
ent schedule, under which the sugar 1
trust is the principal beneficiary and
enabled to enact special privileges and
conditions on sugars produced in Louisi
ana and tho Hawaiian islands. It is evi
dent the c .inn try desires a revision
of the tariff and expects a reduction
of duty -whenever it can bo shown to
be reasonable, feasible and advantage
ous." From all of which it would appear
that whether thoro is to be a reduction
in or tho abolition of the sugar tariff
tho committee is going into the subject
with thoroughness, and it is ovidout that
tho prcteuso of injury to the beet sugar
industry from free importation of
Philippine sugar is a mere sham.
THE HEAVIEST CURSINGS.

Doctrine and Covenants, page 167.
Having in mind tho palpable,
frauds and iho mercenary injustices
that aro constantly boing imposed upon
tho Mormon pcoplo by thoir leaders, tho
outsider sometimes wonders how it is
that theso men aro ablo to maintain
such a hold upon tho pcoplo as to com
pol them to submit to thoir tyrannies.
The Mormon priesthood contond. that
apostasy from tho Mormon church is
a denial of tho Holy Ghost. According
to their teaching thoro is to bo no for
giveness for that man or that woman
who "denies tho Holy Ghost." As
noted in the matter taken from the
Doctrino nnd Covenants, "the heaviest
of all cursings" is placed upon the
apostate. It is this doctrino that the )
priesthood hold as a frightful club over ;
tho heads of tho people, as may bo ob
served in tho excerpt from Apostle
Whitney's sermon. And herein lies the
explanation for the great power that
tho chiofs aro able to exercise over the I
Thoro was a timo iu Utah who if a
sanguinary interpretation was placed
upon "tho heaviest of all cursings."
When tho machinery of tho law was in j
the exclusive keeping of tho priesthood
tho people wero terrorized into submis
sion by cruelly coercive means. Men
who were known to have shown apos
tate tendencies sometimes in'sterious
Iy disappeared. Occasionally tho man
had actually left tho Territory in
stealth, realizing tho probable fate that
awaited him did, ho remain here. At
other times it was given out that ho
had fled iu giiilty fear of tho Lord,
while the fact was that somo kind
brother in the priesthood had "shed
his blood to savo him." During that
period there was frequent uso of such
expressions as this, taken from a ser
mon by President Heber C. Kimball:
"Have not tho majority of this congre
gation mado tho most solemn covenants
and vows that thoy will listen to. obey,
and bo subject-to the priesthood'" An
other favorite and terrorizing threat
was couched in language to tho fol
lowing effect, as wo find it in the
Journal of Discourses in a "sermon''
preached by President Brigham Young:
"Thoro is not a man or a woman who
violates the covenants mado with their
God that will not bo required to pay
tho debt. Tho blood of Christ will
never wipe that out your own blood
must atono for it."
Siuco it has become impossible lo en
force tho old "blood atonement" rule,
tho praclico has been to hint, at dark
and hideous punishment of tho apostate
by the Lord. The priesthood arc for
ever holding before the eyes of tho
membership tho horrible consequences
lo follow departure from tho -faith and
disobedience of tho priests. In fact,
tho majority of the olders' so con
stantly uso th'cso fina'tical falsehoods
as a club with which to bugaboo the
saints into submission that they them
selves actually get to believe the lies.
Thus tho elders in turn terrify them
selves into servility toward their su
periors in tho priesthood; and the re
sult is that the whole mass finally bow
uudcr tho bondage imposed upon them
by ono man the prophet.
Imposition of fraud nnd injustico is
possible only to the extent that the peo
ple will submit lo it; and the onlv ques
tion is how long it will be before tho
saints will awaken to tlieir actual po
sition and smite the power of the oppressor.
