THE UTAH COMMISSION
The Commission In Utah has outlived
usefulness i if it ever had any It was
a Republican experiment and the object
iojMvhich h it was created has been accom
plished namely the disfranchisement of
polygamists In their work in this direc
tion theyjnvenVfiiriher than the law gave
them warrant and a large class whom
I they excluded from the polls have
been restored to their political rights
by a decision of the Supreme Court It
wasj aV clumsy makeshift to ap
point a Commission of five members
whoso solo duties are to appoint the reg
istrars in the various precincts and judges
of elections From formulating ironclad
0ath8 > nd insisting upon their Tigid ad
ministration they have assumed the
humbler and more modest role of sug
gesting forms of oaths leaving it to the
registrars to ascertain a mans right and
qualifications for registering after the Su
premo Court had said that upon them
must rest the responsibility if they erred
in their judgment and refused registra
tion to a man who was entitled to it The
work that is done by the Commission
might well be done by a board consisting
ofBOmany Federal and so many Terri
torial officers much the same as the
grand and petit jurors are selected under
the Poland law The aim of that law was
to make the juries half Mormon and half
Gentile The judgea of election that have
been appointed by the Commission have
been in the main appointed in that spirit
T
and on that plan The Poland law pro
vided that the jurors should be selected
Jjy officers already in existence while the
Edmunds Act created a Commission to
administer it and enforce its provisions
There are many and grave objections to
Much a plan as it creates new offices and
is additional and cumbersome elective
machinery The gentlemen who com
1 pose the Commission have and can have
no interest in Utah aside from the inter
esUof their office In Utah they are so
journers and will never be residents To
them continued turmoil and strife in
Utah is continued office holding Seeing
things mend but slowly to them it must
seem that they mend not at all The
recommendations that they make are
recommendations in favor of more power
and greater latitude for foreign officials
Forms of government do not change
human nature and commissioners under
republics will be no less alien in feeling
and sympathytowards the people among
wUdni they are sent than like commis
sioners under kings They do not be
lieve that those to whom they are sent
are entitled to the same respect and consideration
t
sideration they demand for themselves
when at home and dealing with their own
affairs They are sent because those who
send them do not deem those among
whom they go capable or worthy to man
aotli ir own affairs This being the
reason for sending them can those who
are sent entertain any other ideas than of
their own superiority and of the in
feriority of those over whom they
exercise authority Sent because of
I mistrust they become more mistrustful
LTlTeir ideas their wishes their sympa
ftlneflS and their interests are all alien to
those whose olection affairs they manage
The majority of the employes of the
I Commission are nonresidents and came
hero morely to get a fat thing Every one
of those employes is a Itepublican and a
Republican of the ultra type They may
very justly be termed offensive parti
sanswhose main duties Just year con
sisted in telling terrible tales about the
Democrats and how the Democrats of the
North were as bad if not worse than the
Secessionists of the South They seem
to have been imported for this purpose
The Commission should be abolished
andthe duties it performs devolve upon
L Ijoinoof the regular officials and for the
sameamount that the gentlemen com
posing it receive as salaries the Territory
might have a very excellent and superior
Supreme Court a thing of much greater
importance than the Commission The
v qualification of the voters in Utah Ter
1 Jritory so far polygamy goes is a fet
tled thing and whether Utah remains a
Territory or becomes a Sfate no man who
practices polygamy will ever be a voter
r This is a certainty beyond a doubt and
such being the case why would it not be
well for the Government to discontinue
Commission and the great and need
less expense it entails

f WILL THEY RECOGNIZE IT
p rjpie Franklin Democrat Brookville
ndiana of the 25th ult under the head
of religious jotting has the following
Fiftyfive millions against 200000 is about
the size of the Mormon question The 200
000 are stiffiiookod and the 5000000 de
I termined It will take some years to settle
the matter
Tho other religious note has more im
mediate concern for the people of Utah
4jTliG Mormons are nghast at the unyield
ing policy of the new Democratic Judge
jUowora in Otuli mid well they may be for
President Cleveland told tho Judge he in
tended to wipe out polygamy if he did
nothing else and he is not the man to look
back after putting his hand to the plow
How long will it take the people of
Utahto recognize those two facts that
aro1 quoted from the Franklin Democrat f
They are two important facts two stern
facts and two facts that sum up the
whole situation The two hundred thou
sand people of Utah will not obey the
laws of the Government under which they
live laws that that Government holds
f f essential to its existence and the fifty
jfivef million people of the United
States aro determined that those laws
shall be enforced The Chief Executive
of itheso fiftyfive million people has
said that those particular laws shall bo
rP
c >
I
enforced and that Executives whole life
has been a vindication of his word and
his promise One might almost para
phrase the teachings of Christ when He
toldHis followers to be slow to anger and
say that the religion of the people of Utah
taught them to be slow to recognize
things as they are It would almost
seem that the plainer things become to
common men the blind become more I
blinded The people of Utah see the
storm clouds gathering around them
and they take refuge and find consolation
in the belief that God is causing them to
gather for a wise and beneficent purpose
They are as a ship at sea whose masts are
gone whose rudder is lost and every
wayward wind that blows carries them
nearer to the shoals of their destruction
They claim to be the modern children of
Israel but in their wanderings in the
Egypt of their present dilemma they
hate no cloud to lead them by day no
pillar of fire by night They are as
lost sheep whose shepherd is gone
They claim to lead the way to
heaven and yet know not what
path to tread on earth In the wilder
ness they hear no voice calling unto them
and they will hear none They are as
blind men who wander amid dangers but
refuse to heed the warnings of those who
I
seeThe I
The people of Utah will see their dan
ger and shun it when they recognize the
facts the Franklin Democrat has so
plainly stated but not befcire
ONE HUNDRED AND NINE YEARS
Today the United States complete
one hundred and nine years of their ex
istence as an independent government
and a nation among the nations In the
struggle with Great Britain for independ
ence and the right of selfgovernment
they were successful after seven long years
of war bloodshed and unprecedented
hardships Whatever were the individual
grievances of the Colonies they become
the grievances of all Whatever were
the interests and grievances of the Col
onies among themselves they were for
gotten in the time of strife with the
mother country Near a century later
the interests and jealousies of the
Colonies had become the interests
and jealousies of great and many
States and a war far more gigantic
in its size and in its results had
to be fought to put at rest those
interests and jealousies Now that
strife is long since over and the
victors and the vanquished are fast for
getting their enmities and they aro be
ginning to look upon their country as
their common country in all sections
Twenty years of peace and prosperity
have taught all people and all parties
that perhaps neither party was so wrong
as the North and the South thought three
decades ago The struggle of a quarter
of a century since had to come and
it is well it came when and ended as it
did From barbarous war the Union
was saved and the people have loarned
many valuable lessons They have
learned that many things may be won by
peace and moderation But the dangers
of war are not the only dangers to which
our country is exposed It is in times of
peace when countries have grown great
in population and in wealth and the dis
contents and questions which then begin
to appear that the dangers to liberty and
society begin to grow The dangers
which beset the American Government
now are much the same as the
dangers which beset all governments
without regard to the form they
are the dangers which grow out of
the near neighborhood of wealth and pov
erty of labor and capital In the United
States all men are politically equal and
tho dreams of the French theorists such
as Rousseau Diderot DHolbach and the
men of the Revolution have been realized
in this respect but that which threatens
the peace of society in America today is
tho desire for social equality The ma
jority of men cure less for political con
sideration than for social consideration
and political consideration is chiefly
sought for the social consideration that
follows The dangers which come in times
of peace are greater than those which
come in times of war the dangers of war
are usually from without and bold while
those of peace are from within insiduous
I
and insinuating The problem of gov
ernment is but the problem of mans re
latiouship to man and the merit of
the republican form over all other
forms is its recognition of the right of
each man to participate in the regulation
of the common affairs of each those af
fairs that must be regulated so long as
man associates with man in society
The American Government is a wise
and beautiful adjustment of those I
affairs leaving the domestic and
local affairs to them in their I
capacity as States and the States leaving
to the citizens of the various municipal I I
subdivisions tho control of their local
affairs It is a Constitutional recognition
of the natural right of the citizens of a I
locality to control those affairs which con
cern that locality only Tho giving to the I j I i
General Government the control of for I
I
eign affairs and those matters which comi
cern the States as States was a wise and I
welldevised plan From the days of I
nullification to those of secession our j
danger lay in disintegration Since the
I
close of the which
war followed I
the passage of ordinances of secession I
by the Southern States our danger
has lain in centralization and the usurpa
tion by the General Government of the I
powers and rights of tho States The
judicial construction of the Constitution
by the Supreme Court has over been I
most conservative and conservatism in 1
I
governments lw YB tends to aggression i
To preserve bur independence for another
hundred and nine years there must be a
just appreciation and observation of the
I
balance of power between the General
and the State Government The Consti
tution must be observed in spirit and in I
letter and in times of trial and
peril the more nearly it is followed
the safe will be the course steered The
United States are no longer in swaddling I

nclothes 1IIncI as each anniversary of their I
independence recurs every citizen who
I
loves his country should give that day to
the study and contemplation of those
I
dangers that our country as well as all
others must encounter and see how they
may best be avoided The brag and
bluster that were so common on our anni
versary day some years ago are far less
seemly now than then and while thank
ful for having accomplished our independ
ence and tided over the dangers of the
past it is to the future and its dangers
that the Nation should turn its eyes on
the morrow Of the past the country has
but the memory while in the present
and the future lies its progress or decay
its life or its death
Russian Civilization
Whatever the faults of England and
they are neither few nor small it remains
unquestionably true that Anglican pres
tige stands for the best that European
civilization has to offer in all parts of the
globe The English flag has everywhere I
been the herald of representative insti
tutions and the shield of religious and
political freedom Russia on the other
hand is essentially Asiatic in her theories
and in her methods Napoleon said if
you scratch a Russian you come upon a
tartar So it is with Russian civiliza
tion Under a thin varnish of conven
tional politesse is to be found the most
formidable enemy in existence of repre
sentative institutions and of social and
religious freedom Unless religious lib
erty is a fraud and political liberty a
snare and delusion the further aggran
disement of Russia at the expense of
England would be not simply the eleva
tion of one power and the decline of
another but the triumph of absolutism
over freedom and the pushing back of
civilization itself Prof C K Adams
