The Republicans deny that times
growing better. They don't
like to ackuowledge that confidence
is restored and prosperity is return
ning, under Democratic rule. The
calamity howl is one of their big
hits in this campaign. They say,
"they cannot see that times are any
better, and they don't believe what
they don't see." Did any of them
ever see their backbone? Perhaps
not; yet, very likely there is one in
their anatomy, even if it is nothing
but a cotton string run up theirb'acks
with a few ribs tied to it.
Don't try to mix religion with
politics; it spoils both; and the man
who does so, generally has a very
poor article of each.
There are a lot of men on the
Republican ticket, who are neither
good nor bad; they are just clever.
They are not worth ten cents a
dozen for anything, except to draw
One of the strangest spectacles
that the political crisis has devel
oped, is that of the Salt Lake 7W
bune, in becoming the champion
and defender of the high priests of
the church, in their attempt to in
fluence the result of the election.
We had thought the day of
miracles was past, but with this
transformation we are astounded.
It is possible for a Jew to get
tangled up with a hog, or the devil
to turn saint when he gets sick, but
for the Tribune folks to apologize
for church domination in Utah, is
to excel in the production of double
back somersaults. We are left in
doubt as to whether it is all a joke,
or whether we are under hypnotic
influence. If it is really true, it is
simply awful; it is as unbecoming
for that p'aper, as a shroud would
be on a bride, or a prayer-book in
the hands of Satan. The "Trib."
must have a bad case of softening
of the brain, or emotional insanity.
Whenever you see a Republican
grin over the political situation,
you can bet your bottom dollar
that he is scared at the outlook.
Some men laugh on the gallows.
The Republican city ticket is
likened, unto Peter's vision. "All
manner of four-footed beasts" but
the voters will not arise and eat.
In the Republican city conven
tion, the delegates were openly
reminded of "trades," "slates," and
"blunders," made at their judicial
convention. This must be bitter
water to the three lone stars, who
would 'like to draw the salary as
district judges. Poor fellows, you

The State Democratic committee
have decided to reconvene the state
convention in this city, on Tuesday,
the 22nd day of October, for the
purpose of considering the impend
ing crisis in the political affairs of
Utah. The Broad Ax fully en
dorses the action of the committee,
in thus taking prompt action upon
this most important subject. Let
the matter be thoroughly ventilated
and discussed by representative
men from every portion of Utah;
aad let the voters all know the real
facts in the case. Let no political
hierarchy, influence by indirection,
the vote of a single man in this
land of light and liberty. It has
been said, that neither political
party was mentioned by name, on
the occasion when the rebuke was
administered; but all knew for
whom it was intended. It is often
quite unnecessary to personate the
' object of attack, when by innuendo
I the purpose is made as plain as a
flash of lightning on a midnight

of whitewash on some of the
Republican candidates for the city
council. Some of these old fossils,
whose former record is well known,
better get a brush and a bucket of
lime,and go to work trying to clean
themselves before asking for votes.
There is danger however of the city
running short on lime.
