Tom Reed has lost his moustache.
If his strength lies in his hair, like
Samson's of old, his spinal cord
trill be like an empty sausage at
this session, as he is also bald-headed.
"The world is my country, and
to do good is my religion."
A lot of Republicans in the
House embraced an opportunity to
perform the 'fire-fly" act, last
Tuesday, by introducing a resolu
tion looking to the impeachment of
Minister Bayard. It was a failure,
but it afforded a chance to display
a little grandstand jingoism.
Tbe g. o. p. fellows have been in
a stew about the location of their
national convention. We think the
most appropriate place would be
the Great Mammoth Cave of Ken
tucky. It is said that even the
fish there are blind, and anyone
who would rote that ticket now
may have eyes but they cannot see.
The long-legged county attorney,
and his three pigeon stools, known as
county selectmen, are liable to feel
the cold hand of the law before
many moons. This crowd have
been raising a big cloud of dust,
in order to hide their own trail of
"mileage' and pleasure trips to

Congressional news has been
rather tame thus far. It is prob
able that after the holidays, me
animals will be a little more active.
The Republicans have such an over
whelming majority, that there is
likely to be a row in their own
camp. One thing is certain, that
no legislation will be passed in the
line of free coinage. The people
can expect no relief from the hands
of, the "gold hug" aggregation.
Senator Chandler's bill for the free
coinage of silver, is a fair sample of
the burlesque manner with which
the subject will be treaUd. If the
people ask bread, they will be given
For all kinds of Christmas

John Sherman's book should
bear the title of "JVhat I knoxo
about Republican Leaders." He
tells a few party secrets, and spares
neither the living nor the dead.
The book had such a chilling effect
on some of the former class, that
they have been laid up with severe
colds ever since. We doubt if even
the half has yet been told; but
enough has been said to show that
the Senator is not suffering from
a very high temperature of love for
some of the g. o. p. idols.
The large increase in immigra
tion during the past six months is
worthy of Congressional attention.
It is a subject that needs legisla
tion promptly and to the point.
Persons from the Old World with
bleached characters and un-American
instincts should be received
upon our shores with caution. Pro
tecting the money power with high-
tariff laws and leaving our labor
exposed to the influx of cheap
laborers and paupers, will bring us
to a condition of European vassal
age. Let us protect our own land
from this swarm of pests before it is

A NUMBERof the"smallfry" variety
of newspapers in Utah are publish
ing a lot or readymade commenda
tions of Isaac Trumbo for
U. S. Senator. This streak of
so-called sunshine, is only a
phosphorescent vapor, artificially
produced, and whea examined
under the sunlight of common
sense, he will prove to be nothing
more than a political glowworm.
This attempt to manufacture public
opinion, and boom "Ikey" for
senator, is the height of impudence.
We concede to the Republicans the
two senators from Utah; but we
trust they will not pass by the
many talented and brainy men, of
that party, and send to Washington
a California representative of the
Southern Pacific Railroad, who
would be but a mental nudity in
comparison with a dozen bright
men of Utah, who would accept the
position. All this warmed over,
high-sounding praise by Colonel
Isaac Trumbo, on Col. Isaac Trum
bo, ought to disgust the whole
people and especially the members
of the legislature, upon whom, the
responsibility of electing a senator
