A FRATERNAL DAY.
Todiy is Memorial, or Decora
tion Day a national, legal holiday.
It has been made an occasion, in
the past for the fanatical, political
leader to influence the minds of- a
certain class, to insure the success
of the Republican party. All the
bitter animosities, passions, and
hatred o the civil wanrere re
hearsed and exaggerated until the
auditors were wrought up into a
sort of sectional frenzy. But for
tunately the better sense of the
American people has prevailed, and
the "bloody shirt" ranters are rap
idly disappearing, until now all can
participate in the ceremonies with
out the danger of being insulted or
staed by those who address the
meetings. The day ought to be
one wherein all the people could
feel welcome at the public gather
ing. No partisanship or section
alism should be tolerated. " Demo
crats and Republicans alike should
meet and enjoy the day together.
It should be a day like the Fourth
of July, for the North and. South
alike. We think the day should
be called "Fraternal Day? instead
of Memorial or Decoration Day.
The object of all our national holi
days should be to strengthent he
lore of country in the hearts of the
people. The stability of our re
public depends on union, and union
depends on fraternal feeling. The
day should be kept sacred as an
occasion to remember that the
North and South are now friends;
and this day should simply mean,
that we will ever be friends in the
future. The blue and -the gray
both covered an American; both
were brave, patriotic and honest.
Let the flowers from our hands fall
as generously upon the dead he
roes, as the green grass that silently
hides the uniforms of the brothers
vho once fought each other for
their homes and families.
Let us rejoice today that we are
one people, and that we have sur
Tked the shock of civil war, and
that all sections are true to the im
mortal principles of free govern
ment and the stars and stripes.
Banish all the memory of strife,
and let it be a fraternal day for
old and young in all our land.
LET HIM RESIGN.
The recent boodler cases in which
the ex-selectmen, Martin Hayken
and others were tried for bribery,
etc, have all resulted disastrously
to the prosecution. The last trial,
that of J. R. Morris, lasting about
ten days, ended by the jury return
ing a verdict of not guilty. While
this verdict will perhaps generally
be approved under allthesurround
gs, yet, almost all the public will,
agree that a more appropriate ver
dict would have been, not proven.
Thousands of dollars of tbe tax
payer's money have found its way
into the bottomless sea of expenses
m these prosecutions gone with
the thousands already squandered
in the furniture deaL The county
attorney in his zeal to get hisuelf
a reputation by repeating a Lexow
investigation on a small scale, has
simply made an exhibition o Tua
incompetency, and finds hiaself the
object of derision. He k had the
management and coatrol of all
tnese cases, and a sorry sets ie
nas made of them. Evarywfee
made, every scrap of niijmr ob
tained, and his pka of aftaek ijece
jl rehearsed to the pMSe.-tiirek
meet and checkmate the prosecu
tion at every step. In the Morris
trial it was known three or four
days in advance that Hayken would
turn states evidence, and the de
fense almost knew what his state
ments would be before he went on
the stand. Had this fact been kept
from the public, and Hayken's tes
timony reserved as a surprise for
the climax, how different it might
have been for the defense. This
will probably be the last of these
cases, the balance will be dismissed,
and the suffering public will draw
a sigh of relief. There is but one
act remaining in this farce-comedy
yet to be performed, and it will
most likely be omitted, that is the
resignation of the county attorney.
The public would feel satisfied to
call it even, if this event would take
place. Almost six months have
passed and not a single conviction
has stood where contested to the
credit of the county attorney and
Lbis retinue of assistants. It would
be a good time now, while iudges
are resigning, to follow suit, and
retire to private life, and go to hoe
ing potatoes or following some other
useful vocation, .
ALTGELD AND ILLINOIS.
The storm center between the
silver forces and the gold bugs, is
now going on in the State of Illi
nois. It is a fight of the hankers,
office-holders and cuckoos on one
side, and the people on the other,
to gaia control of the Democratic
State convention; Ninety per cent,
of the people are for the free coin
age of silver and they are led in
their fight by that sterling cham
pion of human rights, Governor
The gold bugs, scenting defeat
in the air, have resorted to new
tactics, and will now hold separate
primaries and select separate dele
gates, and enter the convention
and contest their right to be seat
ed. They were afraid to trust the
people, so the necessity for these
disreputable methods. But they
will not win; and if they do, and
the Democratic party is to be de
livered over to these pharisees and
shylocks, then it would be the time
to revolt, by walking out of the
convention and re-organize the par
ty after the fashion of Jefferson,
Jackson and all its bright lights,
who have stood between the people
and oppression ior the last hundred
Governor John P. Altgeld is the
logical candidate for governor, hav

the past four years, and lie com

declared for unqualified free silver,
which alone constitutes about one
third of the Illinois delegation.

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, MAY 30, 1896.
Mckinley and the field.
McKinley, the Napoleon of the
g. o. p., is likely to find his Water
loo at the St. Louis convention,
after all the noise that has been
made over his campaign. The silent
inan .straddling the fence, with his
"nothing to say" policy, is disgust
ing all his Eastern admirers, and
shaking the confidence of his West
ern supporters. The money ques
tion is the paramount issue, and
while the East and West hold op
posite opinions, they both want a
man nominated at St. Louis who
has some settled convictions on this
the greatest of all questions. The
field of candidates, the Eastern
press, and the capitalists of the
East are combining against this
Buckeye Bonaparte, and the tide is
turning against him in a way which
begins to look like McKinley will
not and can not be nominated.
Who the man will be no one can
now tell; it may be a dark horse,
but one thing seems almost certain,
it will not be McKinley. One thing
is absolutely certain, that is, there
will be a hot fight at the St. Louis
convention over both the platform
and the nominee. Harmony can
not be expected on either platform
or man; it is the East against the
West, and one or the other will
have to eat crow, and that in large
quantities. Mark our predictions
and see if the Broad Ax is not
