Mp ' j 6 TRUTH-
Mr l i -
i. i , DEMOCRATIC POLITICS.
i Local Democrats aro awaiting the
return of National Committeeman D.
II. Peery with considerable interest.
It Is said among the knowing one.
that his coming will mark a rovlval of
Interest In party matters. Just now
there Is nothing doing. The drubbing
I ho organization received last fall,
and the defections since, have about
convinced many of the- erstwhile ac-
- i. uvo members that there Is little
l 1 1 chance for the success of a ticket at
'iif Iho fall election, although It Is but
H I ilr to say there are a few who affect
H ; i to believe that with tho Issues pre-
H t j f anted by tho bond Issue, the frnn-
H I i clilse asked for by the Consolidated
H( , ' ! Ight & Railway company, the Demo-
H, I f, crats would have a chance to do
H, " l ' Fomcthing. So far as Truth is able
H, i to ascertain there aro but few Demo-
H , , , crats who want to fuso with the Re-
H' ( pi publicans on a Citizens' ticket, no
H ' matter what the American party may
H I do. They prefer to go down to do-
H J leat as an organization to achieving
H ' fucccss by uniting with any of their
H, l lormcr opponents. The Utah Demo-
H " . , cratlc club has had the question un-
H 'f dcr consideration and some of its
Hi . i members are gravely discussing what
HJ j chould bo done. Tho Young Men's
HJ' , Democratic club, formerly active, a
HJt . , now dead, except on rent day when
HJ' fJ ' r Agent Lewis, for tho Walker estate,
HJ Hustles up tho treasurer for a check.
Hi' ', . , A fow of tho faithful, however, declare
Hb , thero will bo something doing as soon
HJ , j as Peery gets back, because ho is ox-
Hb '! pected to lnfuso some lifo into the
HJ outfit. Mr. Peery has been in Call-
HJ '; i'ornia and Goldilcld for some time,
HJ but his friends expect him home nl-
Hb ' most any day now and upon his ar-
Hi ' ' rival a consultation will be held. Sev-
HJ C oral members of the club aro anxious
HJ 1 j to ascertain tho position taken liy
Hi " ; ' Mr. Samuel Nowhouse, the president
Hi., , "i ; of the club, and its angel; tho man
Hi , n who staked It and placed it on its
Hi ' ' feet. It is suggested that Mr. Now-
Hl' ,A ' , , house, while still a Democrat, may
Hb .' , not bo as active as he was last fall,
Hi . ' . and in that event the club will have
Hi ,',-, to hustle for Itself, because those who
Hb ;j were at tho front with their money
HJ during tho last campaign are not half
HJ i ;l as cnger as they wore when pie was
Hi . . ; in sight. Tho rooms of tho club are
HJ ;9 deserted nowadays, save and cxecpt
HJ i when tho night watchman retires to
HJ i i' tho expensive Davenport sofa for a
Hb , 'Si well earned rest. No one goes there
Hi f i any more. Tho ice box is dry and tho
HJ' 'W dally paper no longer is thrown over
H' , 1 1 tho doorway. Tho assistant secretary
H , ) has been cut off at the pocket and no
H I one is loft to tako care of things. All
H ' 1 in all, It doesn't look like there is go-
H lng to bo much doing.
H i Mayor Morris is understood to be a
i !l candidate to succeed himself, In the
iovont a candidate is named. Tho
mayor wants a "vindication" nt the
hands of the citizens. Whether ho
will get it remains to be seen, but the
prediction Is freely mado that any old
person can beat him this fall, either
in convention o,r out of it. Recorder
Crltchlow wants a re-election, but Re
corder Critphlow will come out a long
distance behind. Ho hasn't been at
his ofllco long enough since election to
get acquainted with tho routine and
about tho only thing new inaugurated
by him is tho salo of coal to city de
partments. It Is stated that John
wanted to win the affections of tho
other city officials and employees and
realizing that "absence makes the
heart grow fonder," took this moans
of making himself solid with every
one on t2io north end of the Joint
building. Fisher Harris is saying
nothing, but is diligently sawing wood
Whether he will bo a candidate or not
remains to bo determined. Judge Doy,
Fisher Harris and Auditor Felt will
nwnlt tho pleasure of their party.
Tho Logan Journal seems to have
gone "daffy" over tho proposition
which was before tho legislature to
consolidate the University of Utah and
tho Agricultural College. The propo
sition was defeated, which should
surely satisfy the Journal. On the
contrary, however, tho sheet rants and
raves In coarse abuse of Senator Love
and Governor Cutler, especially the
former, who it appears to have singled
out as tho especial object of its wrath.
Thero are certainly two sides to the
consolidation question, else the con
solidation plan would not have re
ceived as much support in the legisla
ture as It did. Those who voted for
it were Just as able and honest as
those who voted against It. Truth
takes no sides on the question, not
being sufficiently posted on the matter
to express an opinion which would be
worth anything. We do, however,
know that good arguments have been
made on both sides and we do know
that It Is nn outrage for any news
paper, however full of buncomb It may
bo, to make such unwarranted, brutal
and mendacious attacks as the Logan
Journal has upon the governor and
L. O. Hoggan of 317 South Main
street, has opened up his new trunk
store and has a very lino assortment
of bags, trunks, suit cases and a great
variety of novelties in leather goods.
