H year or two after Mr. Koarns was
B elected United States Senator and
B when Mr. Koarns wanto.I his friend
H anl associate, Perry Heath, tho king
H of grafters, elected as his colleague,
B i tho Trlbuno slopped all over in tho
j m.st fulsomo and nauseating pralso
M of the Mormon people, who, according
H to tho Trlbuno, wero tho best peopie
H on earth; honest, industrious, Intolll-
H Kent, loyal, law-abiding. Slnco
H I Kcarns and Heath both got tho
H ", rand bounce," the Mormons, accord-
hi'! to tho Tribune, tire tho worst peo-
Pl pie on earth; dishonest, Idlo, ignorant,
Idlbloyal, law-breaking nnd everything
ols3 that Is despicable and utterly bad.
Tha Trlbuno was either lying then or
it '.s lying now.
H Kearns, Cannon nnd tho Trlbuno for
H, two yenrs have been most violently
H' opiosod to tho llopnbllcans In general
Hj and Picsident Roosovolt in particular.
H: It Is characteristic of that gang to
oppose anything that is good. In their
dislike to tho President, they ara cer
tiinly kicking against the prides, for
the Roosevelt administration is proba
Lly tho very best this country ha3 over
enjoyed. It Is likewise the most pop
ular. Fair, thinking men of all par
ties acknowledge this and put their
belief into practice by voting for
President Roosevelt and supporting
his government. Millions of Demo
crats flocked and still are flocking to
his standard, until there aro very few
Democrats left in the United States.
In tho face of these facts, Kearns, a
few hirelings and his newspapers, are
leading a few misguided Republicans
and disgruntled ofllcc-seekers nnd
cranks in a scurrilous attack on the
President and tho Republican party,
in order to satisfy tho vengeance of
the two ex-Senators, who resent tho
prefix "ex." You Republicans who ara
following them, aiding and abetting
them in their nefarious purpose, what
do you think of yourselves? What
will you think of yourselves In a few
months when you look back on your
nctlon in going off with a vengeful
sldo show like the American party?
Don't you think your heads neod fix
ing? The Democrats raised the city taxe3
from 9 to 11 mills, made necessary by
extravagance, but that's not a circum
stance to what the Kearns-Amerlcans
would do If they shoul 1 get in power.
Suppose the Koarns-Amerlcan prrty
should win the election and get control
of tho municipal offices, that would
be no remedy whatever for the allegal
ills of which the Keanvi crowd com
plain. Tho only thing that wouU bo
accomplished by tho success of the
"American" party would be tho turn
ing over of tho city to a lot of thuja
nnd thieves to be looted. Thug poll
tics Is the slogan of tho Kearns
Tho motto of the Republicans is:
We're (Weir) not nshamo.1 of Salt
Lake. It's a pretty good motto, loo,
although Mr. Weir may not think so.
It Is almost tho unanimous senti
ment of both political parties that the
foolish practice of team hire on elec
tion day bo cut out. It Incurs a large
and unnecessary expense and does
llttlo if any good. A man or woman
who will not walk to tho polls on elec
tion day to exercise his or her God
given right to cast n free ballot, is
not worthy of consideration nnd
should not bo given tho privilege of
riding at someone else's oxpenso.

ATTORNEY WINS HIS CASE.
"Jim" Jones is not tho true name
of a well known attorney, who was
mistaken a few nights ago for a thief,
and who had a hard time to convince
the minion of the law who was on his
trail, that he was not tho man wanted.
"Jim" had been busy all day in tho
District Court, and while on tho way
to his home early In tho evening,
dropped Into a well known thirst
quenching resort, where he had
friends, and stood up to tho bar to
take a lemonade, or some other "soft"
drink. "Jim," by tho way, never In
dulges to excess In that stuff that
makes a man's head feel like a San-tos-Dumont
airship at full speed.
As "Jim" stepped Into tho saloon,
tho man in tho white apron bowed,
smiled, and rubbed his hands. Hb
did not know what was coming.
Neither did "Jim."
Our friend, the attorney, took his
drink. Ho was in tho act of wiping
the moisture from his mustache when
a burly blue coat tapped him on the
shoulder, and In a true Plnkerton
whisper, and with tho Invariable wink
that Is seen on tho "stoige," when a
"Ily cop" makes a "pinch," said, with
"I want you."
"W'at 'ell," exclaimed Jone3.
"This guy says that you robbed
him," said the "fly cop," whoso name
Is not "Dirt," but sounds suspiciously
Then tho attorney went up In the
air. He said funny things that would
not look good on the page3 of a select
and conservative family paper.
Tho man who had been Indicated,
then came forward. He had previous
ly described Jone3 to a T. There
was the same gray suit, the same
mustache, tho same red tie, and the
same stiff black hat.
"Whnt Is the matter with you, fel
low!" said the attorney, as the man
tlo of rogo began to spread a crimson
flush over his cheeks.
"You are the man who robbed me,"
reiterated the man who had been
Then his story was told. Ho had
como Into tho saloon In tho morning,
from a sheep ranch, and ho had
?32.35 In his pockets. Ho had been
spending money over tho bar all day,
and was In possession of a second de
gree jag, and was starting In on the
Tho yokel declared that ho had lost
J14.60, and that Jones had picked his
pocket a half hour before.
Then Jones lost his temper. This
was tho first, last and only tlmo that
"Jim" had over lost anything.
"So you soy I stolo J14.B0 from you,
do you? "ho queried tho man who
had been "robbed."
"You certainly robbed mo," was tho
Then something happened, nnd It
happoned so quickly that no ono knew
what happened until It had happoned.
A big hard fist, at tho end of a big
muscular arm, shot out like a rock
from a catapult, and caught the far
mer on the chin. Down he went llko
a log. Then tho policeman Inter
fered. "Seo hero," ho cried, "oven ir you
aro a lawyer, yon can't do that."
"Jim" cooled down and when tho
farmer came to, ho took an inventory
of his belongings. Ho found ?19.80 in
his pockets. It Is a mathematical fact
that 119.80 plus ?14.50, is more than
?32.35, and tho crime of theft, with
which Jones was charged, was wined
off tho slato.
Then Jones bought for tho crowd and
tho sheep herder helped to pay. Ho
admitted that ho was in tho wrong
and that if was West Temple street
liquid refreshments that had played
havoc with his mind. Tho assault
and battery case was not pressed by
tho policeman. Tho sheep man
thanked Jones for "pounding a little
sense into his head," and then a cele
bration was started.
Now when the sheep man comes to
town he hunts up Jones, and endeav
ors to get him to go on a big celebra
tion. But Jones has signed the pledge.
No more celebration for him. J$-

The Ver . of Public Opinion.
Public op'-Ion was tho first great
Ju'ge. It drove the malefactor from
his own '. plo to the desert, to live
an exile, with every man's hand ,
against him. Its Judgments are still
true and righteous. Cunning lawyers
may befog Juries. Wrongdoers may
hide bohlnd technicalities. But there
aro verdicts of public opinion which
are branded Into their skin and which
they can never erase. Not for all
offenses, but for certain offenses that
Is "the great corrective ind punitive."
Its valuo can not be easily overesti
mated. There aro men in Now York
now who are finding tho verdict of
public opinion scarcely less bllehtlng
than tho sentence of a criminal
court. (New York World.)
