Gov. Wells will appear on the
boards in a new role on Jan. Gth.
He will be the star actor, and will,
undoubtedly, draw a big house.
He has the best wishes of the
Broad Ax, and we trust he will be
a success as governor as well as
actor. The State of Utah, will be
the way to write it after Governor
Wells is sworn in.
The Democracv is entitled to a
little recognition in securing state
hood. They broke the ice first
with the "Home Rule" bill: Demo
crats introduced and passed the en
abling act; and a Democratic presi
dent will issue the proclamation
admitting Utah as a state. And
yet some little g. o. p. fellow will
tell you the Democrats never do

"The inaugural committee re
commends that upon receipt of the
news of the issuance of the Presi
dent's proclamation, admitting
Utah as a State, that in each city
and hamlet of the State, steam
whistles be blown and bells be rung.
Many of the hamlets are without
the whistles. It might be well to
have the committee furnish them.
There are plenty of whistles in
everylhamlet; and if they cannot use
steam.use cold air; and if they cannot
whistle then let them shout. As
for the oelles, Utah has a surplus,
and many of them can whistle, and
it they cannot be rung, they can be
hugged, which will answer as well.

The aggregate value of Chicago
bank stock is over $56,000,000,
while it was assessed at $350,000,
or about six-tenths of one per cent,
of its real value. And yet we hear
this same crowd howling about the
"dishonest dollar," the "fifty cent
dollar," and they fear the country
is going to be flooded with "cheap
money." It seems to us that this
virtuous (?) cry from the benefi
ciaries of this evasion of tax-paying
comes with very bad grace. A
"fifty-cent" dollar is certainly far
more honest and decent in any
community, than the banker, who
evades taxation on 99 per cent, of
his bank stock, by perjury. Are
such men honest?

The impending rupture between
the county selectmen and the super
intendent of the Infirmary, prom
ises to disclose a new sensation,
notwithstanding the former will
try to have a star chamber investi
gation. It is charged that Supt.
Cannon sometimes uses cuss words
when things don't run smoothly.
And there are counter-charges
against the selectmen galore. Who
is to be investigated, and who is to
do the investigating, is not made
known. We don't pretend to know
anything about this quarrel, but we
are free to say, if there ever was an
utterly incompetent, obtuse and ex
pensive board of County Selectmen,
they can be found in Salt Lake
County. tThe public have been
afflicted frith incompetent officers,
ofttimes, but these fellows take the
cake. The whole crowd have re
cently been investigated by the grand
jury, one indicted, and the balance
escaping by the skin of, their teeth.
It looks like they wanted to get
even by investigating some one else.
If the whole County Court would
resign at the birth of statehood, the
people would ratify.
