I 6 TRUT FT.
II POLITICAL MELANGE
t Feirful lest ho may lose his position
H ,' as United Stntes attorney and tho
HJf emoluments of tho ofllco, Joo Llppman,
tj manager of tho Tribune, now seeks to
form an alllanco with tho Republicans
iand combine tho "American" party
with tho regular organization. This
movement on tho part of Foxy Joo
has been In embryo for somo time,
but no deflnlto steps have been taken
until recently, when emissaries from
tho Tribune ofllco woro sent out to
"sound" several leaders of tho Repub
lican organizations on tho subject.
So far as can bo ascertained, noth
ing satisfactory was received from
h'a, tho Republicans, and therefore no an-
H , nouncements can bo made.
11 '; Joo had decided that to nominate
!, an "American" ticket, independent of
tho regular tickets, might divert
enough votes from tho Republicans to
enable the Democrats to win. This, In
tho face of such an overwhelming vic
tory ns was won last fall, would bo
' sufficient to convince tho authorities
at Washington that treachery existed
In tho Republican camp, and they
would naturally inquiro who was tho
hi-m traitor. Any sort of investigation
Mi would reveal perfidy on tho part of
j Llppman, and his ally, Kcarns, in the
I'ij Tribune ofllco and tho blamo would
Mw fit once bo charged to thorn, with tho
Ij result that' Joe's official head would
wjp adorn tho basket beneath tho official
H j guillotine In very short order. And
wl that Is tho very last thing Joo wants.
W for thnt $4,000 per annum looks good
Bf to him. Joo is going to have a scrl-
Btl ous timo hanging on under present
Hi conditions, without doing anything ad-
if dltionnl to aggravate his case. Tho
B' assaults mado by tho Tribune upon
V Commissioner Richards, of the gen-
He i ernl land office, havo been such as to
Hai call tho attention of tho president to
HH l tho fact that Joo is knifing tho ad-
HjS ministration whenever ho gets a
Hi II chance, and tho administration is not
Hj golnr to stand for that sort of thing
HJ'I very long.
Hl As to whether such a scheme would
Hi, have a good offect or not is to bo de
Hfl termincd, but several Democrats who
Hlj havo been Inclined toward voting tho
Hl "American" party ticket, if ono is nom
Hi', i inatcd, have been heard to say that no
Hl such scheme to herd them into tho
Hljl1 ranks of tho Republican party will
Hill work; that if thcro Is any consolida
Hall, tion, they will go back to the Demo
Hal cratlc party and do tho best they on
HI to olect the ticket. On the other hand
Hi I such a movement may anger a lot of
Hb I regular Republicans, who may hcsl
H tate about casting their lot with such
HI an alllanco. Any way the only nl
HB llnnco tho Tribune, tho head of tho
"American" party, would make would
bo such as would give that paper tho
city patronage. That's what it's after.
But Joo is busy just tho same. Joe
has got' to light somewhere and ho
wants to light on his feet.
By tho way: Hero 13 a problem: If
tho "American" rarty and tho Repub
lican party should fuso what would
become of former Senator Frank J.
Cannon, Democrat? Would ho again
"get together and stay together?"
Tho Iron County Record contains
"It is refreshing to learn that the
Salt Lake Herald, which for the past
two years has been a faint echo for
tho Salt Lake Tribune, Is once more
to havo policies and alms of Its own.
This change of heart has been
brought about by tho ascentlon of
Simon Bamberger to tho editorial
management. Bamberger, besides be
ing an Israelite, Is a Democrat and a
pusher. Tho Herald and Tribune will
no longer imblbo their lemonade
through tho same quill, and It may be
that tho Herald will win back somo of
'ts previous patronage. Already It Is
enjoying tho publication of the notices
of the Salt Lake municipality, and Is
aying things more or less detrimental
to Tom Kcarns and his push, showing
that tho ex-senator no longer owns
and controls the democratic as well
as tho Republican (?) organ."
While tho above Is pertinent, it Is
awful to havo the Herald alluded to
as "It." as Is so frequently dono in the
Lots of young Democrats aro out
working to secure the nomination for
city recorder this fall for Ben D.
I Luce, to the exclusion of John S. Mc
Cune Critchlow, who wants to get
back for another two years well
earned rest. They claim that Critch
low has not attended to business un
I til after being fired from Bamberger's
coal office; that ho appointed un
knowns to office to tho exclusion of
party workers. If Ben Luce does en
,ter the race Critchlow will have to go
somo, for Ben has a record for hust
ling whllo Critchlow Is nothing more
or less than a political accident.
Colonel Joe Geoghegan has a small
boom for mayor stewing on tho polit
ical stovo. Tho colonel, however, 1
(too busy reorganizing the natlonnl
guard to bo Interviewed, so please do
not annoy him.
If anyone should happen to ask you.
just tell him Quincy Nichols Is a can
didate for tho city council this fall.
Quincy has yielded to the importunate
solicitations of his many friends and
will make a hu3tlo for tho place.
Frank Swonson has returned from
the ranch, whore ho has been taking
an outing. Wo make this announce

D. H. Peery, Democratic national
committeeman from this state, has
come homo from Goldfleld to straight
en out somo matters connected with
the unterrifled Democracy, but has
been Indisposed from tonsilitls since
his return and not in a condition to
talk. Henry will bo out In a few days,
however, and then we look for some
one to bo sent In to dust off the furni
ture in tho Young Men's Democratic
club and get tho desks ready for ac
tion. Since the boom of Tom Black, for
mayor, died a bornin' tho eminent
member from the Fifth has concluded
that tho four year term will bo good
enough for him.
And now tho Herald claims it
passed the franchise for the Light &
Power company. Thero is just
about the same foundation In fact for
that statemont as thero would be for
tho Herald to claim that it assisted in
the work alluded to in Genesis I 1.
The boom for John J. Thomas, as a
candidate for council in the First to
succeed Martin, seems to be pro
gressing at quite a lively rate.
There is quite a boom on among the
Republicans for the nomination of Dr.
A. S. Bower for mayor. He Is urged
by some of the most influential mem
bers of the party and it is generally
conceded he would be a very accepta
Tho Democrats are playing politics
by fomenting tho already very
strained relations between the straight
Tepubllcnns and the "American" par
ty. Tho quarrel Is of course good for
tho Democrats, and they are trying to
make tho feeling as bitter as possible
Tho politicians aro all at sea as to
how things are going to lino up for
the municipal election next November.
The Democrats at this time claim to
'nvo the best prospects. They con
trol tho machinery; that is they have
ivery department of the city govern
ment with practically all the em
ployes; they have a million dollars to
apend on water works, on which a
small army of Democratic voters will
bo employed, and in addition they will
have the cry that they aro going to
give tho city the much needed addl-
