I Martin Rlgby of Newton and Josoph
iSnt Knowles Jr., were seen on our at reets
together on Wednesday. These two
gentlemen labored together In tho
Lancashire Conference England as
missionaries for nearly two ycars-rre-

Tho cold weather has had a verj
benetlclal effect upon tho roads, and
a? a result the pcoplo from the coun
try are coming to town to do their
Christinas trading. The merchants
are prajing that the cold map will
continue all winter If trade will con
tinue m good as It lias been the last
What is the Reason?
Two or three bulsiicss men were
discussing the local financial situation
on the street today. AH agreed that
we had had a very prosperous season,
and that thero aie a great many peo
ple In the community that arc pressed
for money to meet their obligations
and wondered what the cause -was.
One of them was of the opinion that
the people had not been economical
enough but had oer reached them
selves. Another stated thst t he real
cause was the Implement houses and
the Life Insuiauce men, that the
people had been talked Into puiehas
ing maehineiy, buggies etc that they
could hae gotten along ery well
without, that they had given their
notes and assumed obligations that
they could not now meet without
boi rowing, ami it was causing them
a good deal of trouble to raise tho
There is no doubt but what, there
Is more tiuth than poetry In this
statement, but It seems that the bulk
of the people will never learn how to
say no, and mean It. They can usually
be talked into almost anything and
if they were not tied up w ttli Imple
ment notes, they would be Investing
on a rubber farm in Mexico or South
If any one has money to Invest llieie
arc Just as good openings right here
in this valley as any where else on
earth' and the returns w ill be Just as
large and Just as sine.
We w Ish the people would consider
these things for their own good. Debt
Is an awful burden at best. If we
would be happy we must keep out of
Benjamin Curtis Dead.
Henjamln Curtis who died at Pres
ton in the caily part of the week and
who was brought heio for burial, was
for somcjcaisa lesldcnt of this city,
lie was bom in Alleganey County,
New Yoik, Jan. 12, 1828, and grew up
In the relgon made famons by tho
ccntstransplilng there, in connection
w 1th the bi Inglng forth of the Hook
of Moimou and the consequent orlgcn
ofMormonism. Mr. Curtis used to say
that he didn't know anything about
Joseph Smith and the plates he claim
ed to recel e, but the subject w as often
discussed in the nclghboihood where
he lived, during his boyhood, and he
had once visited the hill Cumorah out
ofjcurioslty and he had seen evi
dences that there had been a hole dug
in the hill at the spot wheie Joseph
Smith claimed the plates had been
buried. Whether the hole' had been
dug there by Smith or some one else
lie could not say.
In later j ears he mairied a sister of
C. W. Caul and lemovcd to Giand
Rapid-., Michigan, where they lesided
for a number of vcais. They came to
to Utah In 1884 and located In this City
where they remained for six jcars,
then removing to Preston where he
has since resided.

The Election Contest.
The action of Allen and Farrcll In
instituting proceedings against An
derson and Larson witli a view to
ousting them from the oftlces to which
they haebcen elected, has been pret
ty thoroughly discussed by both Dem
ocrats and Republicans the last few
dajs. The action Is pretty generally
condcinmcd. Some Democrats asseit
that cen If tho suit were successful It
would icsult Injuriously to the Demo
crats In the futute. Tho charge that
thcie wcie Illegal otescast and count
ed for the Republican nominees, and
legal votes thiown out that should
havo been counted for the Democratic
nominees In all the piclncts,. docs not
rellect ery great credit on the loyalty
and Intelligence of the two Democratic
Judges that tepiescnted their paity in
those precints. In some sections a
statement like that would be taken as
a pieludc to an effort to steal the elec
tion, and some discussion was Indulged
in on the sheet alongtlils line; but we
donotbcliee the plaintiffs in tho
cascwould be guilty of such an act;
and even if they were so disposed It
could not succeed under existing con
ditions. Thcdajsof the ballot box t
stutling is practically ocr In Utah.
As we understand it the suit is bas
ed principally upon the supposition
that Illegal votes were cast for Ander
son and Larscn, but from the fact
two Democratic Judges at each polling
place passed on those votes as legal
and certified to the returns as true
and correct, it is hardly probable that
that a contest will change the result
materially. If there was Illegal otcs
cast In the election at all, the chances I
arc that a thoiough examination will
reveal the fact that as many of them I
were cast for Allen and Farrcll as
If this should be the result as now I
seems piobablc the plaintiffs will be I
loudly condemmed for bringing a suit I
that means aunuovaucc and expense,
Pending tho light In the couit An- D
dcrson and Larsen will take possession n
of their oiliccs on January Hist, and
It the old law term that possession f
is nine points in law counts, they will I
remain there a long time.
