1 For the present campaign tlio nation
al al parties in Now York, which cast
M nearly one-eighth of all the votes in
H the United States at tlio last Pros
M; Idontlal election, have ceased to exist.
H Tlio democratic opponents of Mr.
H Hearst feared that tlio republican
i politicians mlsht make It hard for
H" them to vote for Mr. Hughes by driig
M glng In partizan issues, but the candl
M dato dispelled tnat fear 'in his speech
H of acceptance, in which he defines
H ' his own issues and laid down tlio lines
H , of his campaign. In the whole speech
H the to was no rcfcrcnco to any sub
H jeet that divides the great parties.
H Tho administration of President Roose
H velt was praised for certain great
H; achlovcmcnts in tho way of restrain
H lug lawless combinations of capital.
H Congress was praised for tho passago
H j of tho Railroad Ilato act, tho Meat In
H. spcctlon act, tho Puro Food act, and
Hj tho Kemployers' Liability act. But all
H theso wcro matters in which demo
H ' crats woro at least as much interested
Hi as republicans. "No one," said Mr.
Hi Hughes, "can deny us tho right to pay
Hi ' just trlbuto to 'Joffcrsonlan democrats'
H or to 'Lincoln republicans." Our con
i ; test is not with them, and tho cnndl
H dates opposed to us aro not of them."
H Tho supremo Issuo of tho campaign
H Mr. Hughes declared to bo not ono of
H ropublican principles or of democratic
H I! principles, but "tho vital issuo of do
H jj cent government." "It is an Issuo
H " which shall array on ono sido all
H lovers of truth, of sobriety, and of lion
H i est reform, bo they republicans, dem
H,il ocrats,.or Indopondcnts.
H, In his letter accepting tho noml
H'j nation of tho Indopondenco League
H Mr. Hearst also emphasized tho non
H partizan character of tho campaign.
H i Ho told tho leaguo that it represented
"tho determination of tho people, Ir
respective of party, to restoro the
American system of government In
this country." He held "tho great
problem of the hour, the problem that
tho people must solve with their bal
lots and in legislation," was "to do
away with corporation control of the
government." That control, ho as
sorted, "is now practically absolute.
It rests mainly upon our system of par
tizan politics, directed by boss rule
and subject to trust ownership." Tho
practical solution of tho boss question
ho saw in tho Independent League's
demand for "direct nomination of men
to fill every public ofllce from assem
blymen to judges and senators of tho
United States. With tho installation
of tho direct nomination system the
people will chooso their representa
tives, tho boss' will bo without power,
and ho will disappear."
With tho lssuos bo formulated, all
calculations based on tho old party
divisions becomo worthless. Not only
Is there no Issuo between tho parties
there Is not oven any direct Issue
between tho candidates. Mr. Hughes
takes his stand on tho principle of de
cent government, but Mr. Hearst does
not offer to meet him thero as the
champion of Indecent government. Mr.
Hearst says that tho supremo test 13
tho destruction of corporation rule,
but Mr. Hughes does not present him
self as tho defender of corporation
rule. Each attempts to make his own
Issue, and tho question is which the
people will nccept as tho real one.
On this question former election re
turns afford no guide. It is not in
conceivable that republican majorities
up tho state and domocratlc majorities
in New York City may both melt away.
Mr. Hearst is In partnership with
Boss Murphy in Manhattan and fight
ing Doss Mcarren in Drooklyn. One
boss is as bad as the other. Will Mr.
Hearst bo helped by Murphy's al
liance and hurt by McCarren's oppo
sition, or vlco versa? His enemies
say that ho will be hurt by both, but
that seems hardly logical. Associa
tion with n boss Is either helpful or
noxious to a candidate, and a compar
ison of next month's voting In Man
hattan and In Brooklyn will show
which. Mr. Hearst has displayed con
siderable restlveness under his asso
ciation with Murphy, and has allowed
his Independence League to play ha
voc with tho Tammany local, legisla
tive, and congressional tickets. Col
Tho Herald doesn't liko the way
County Clerk Eldredo has arranged
tho names of tho candidates on tho
voting machines. That's too bad. It's
a pity Mr. Eldredgo didn't consult
tho Herald about It.
If tho Tribune had no hlerarch what
would tho Trlbuno do for editorial
NATIONAL PURITY LEAGUE.
After reciting tho fact that tho peo
ple eat too rich food and drink too
harmful beverages; after dlrcctin gat
lenUon to tho fact tint shop Eh'lu loss
their virtue because they aro compel
led to work for $3 per week, tho Na
tional Purity Leaguo passes a resolu
tion against peek-a-boo waists and low I
neck dresses. Bully. That's tho way
to reform things. Although we don't
seo why the leaguo omitted to con
demn open-work stockings, which aro
equally as pernicious and harmful as
tho waists and tho V-shaped corsages
Tho purity leaguo is so practical.
Realizing that tho shop girls aro tho
ones who wear theso Inventions of dia
bolical character, it proceeds to offer
as a remedy their abolishment. Great
heads! Wonderful think tanks! Sapi
ent collections of gray matter. Lord
of Israel, what a nice mess of reform
ers tho country does produce when
tho season Is good.
In future when a man gets drunk,
wo presume tho proper remedy for his
condition will bo tho adoption of a
resolution that hats cause baldhcaded
ness, ergo, hats ought to bo abolished,
That when a fellow Is addicted to
stealing it is becauso ho doesn't wear
Allcock's corn plasters, hence corn
plasters should bo advocated. That
when ho manifests a disposition to go
out and smash some fellow, it is the
result of neglect on tho part of his
good wife to steep her tea properly.
Purity leaguo, forsooth. It is just a
band of Impractical kickers for tho
purpose of telling people how awfully
wicked they are, and never offering
any remedy for conditions. It Is on a
par with tho man in a medical profes
sion who would sit down besldo tho
bed and say to tho patient: "You aro
afflicted with typhus In its most pro
nounced form, but I cannot do any
thing for you, except to recommend
that your wife leave off wearing flan
nel underclothing and use balbrlggan."
Wo all know what tho matter is.
We seo it around us every day. Wo
don't need to bo told of it in prosy
sermons or lengthy discourses. What
we want is for some man, with horse
sense, to get up and suggest some
remedies. Everybody knows about tho
Illness; what they want next is eomo
Information concerning the medicine.
AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE QUES
TION NOT POLITICAL.
Editor Truth: Tho local democratic
sheet has adopted as dastardly, low,
sneaking and contemptible political
stand as ever was belched forth from
tho Kearns' sower. In great fat typo
on tho front page of tho Logan Jour
nal, wo find tho following:
"A vote for tho Republican party,
is a voto against tho Agricultural Col
lege." This was dono to catch tho unin
formed, but It most certainly lead to
their sorrow. Had they waited until
within a fow days of election and
sprang this contemptible lie, thoy
migflt have caught a fow of tho un
wary in their net, but now, thero" Is
plenty of time to refute their fabri
cation. Republican County Chairman
Thaino has Issued a challenge to tho
democratic chairman for a debate be
tween Mr. Barber, tho senatorial nom
Ineo on tho democratic ticket, and Mr.
Bullcn, tho senatorial nominee "on tho
Republican ticket. Tho subject of do
bato is as follows: "Resolved, that a
voto for the Republican party, Is a
voto against tho Agricultural College."
Mr. Barber taking the affirmative and
Mr. Bullen the negative. When tlhs
challenge was read In tho Logan Re
publican, democrats became as
tounded, and some of their leaders
emphatically repudiated their own
party sheet. They will not, and dare
not accept tho challenge They say
they aro not responsible for tho slush
dished up in tho trl-weokly baby trib
une of Logan. If this Is tho sort of
a campaign tho democracy wants to
wage, they aro welcome to all tho
glory and honor it will bring them.
Democrats aro dosperato up hero, or
they never would try to make a po
litical issuo of the Agricultural College
question. I take It that all public
spirited men of all parties residing In
this valley aro staunch supporters of
tho Agricultural Collego remaining
where it Is, and against consolida
tion. Bringing it Into politics is very
unfortunate and will have a tendency
to do tho Institution more harm than
Keep cool, boys, bo satisfied. Ala- ft,
bama and Georgia are democratic, but
you must never run off with tho idea
that democracy will ever again man
Ipulato tho affairs of Cache county.
The record of their last county admin
istration is still fresh in tho memory
of tho people. They had better wash
their linen clean before they ask cit
izens and tax-payers to support them.
Some right nlco goody-goody fel
lows are gumshoeing it around among
the people telling them that Bullen is ,si
not a friend of tho Agricultural Col- H
lege. Mr. Bullcn and Mr. Walters aro fl
tho writers of the minority report
of tho committee of invest!- t
gatlon on consolidation appointed by v
tho governor. Any ono that will take
the trouble to read this report can
seo at a glanco where Mr. Bullen
stands, and that there is nono inoro
loyal to that Institution than ho.

DEATH OF THOMAS MARSHALL.
Another old and highly respected
member of tho Salt Lako bar has
passed away In tho person of Thomas
Marshall. Ho was one of the old
school of southern gentlemen, high
minded, honorable, kindly and gener
ous. For nearly half a century he
lived in Utah and practiced his pro
fession In which ho stood In the very
front rank. In a legal capacity ho
represented many of tho largest busi
ness Interests in tho west, and his
clients ever had tho greatest confi
dence In his integrity and ability. In ,
addition to being a great lawyer ho ' 7
was one of tho most kind and con- 1JI
siderato of men, and enjoyed the es- X
teem and generous regard not only 1
of tho legal fraternity but of the gen-
oral public. Ho was a man of high
Ideals and had an exalted view of
tho dignity of his profession. Ripe
and full of years he has gone to his
roward, his work hero well done, but
his absence will bo regretted and his
loss felt. He did good always and
tho world was better becauso ho
lived in it
