that II ititRht be possible to foresthll nnv
unwholnsome effect the cutting down of
expected revenue; might have upon the
business of the country. And the circus
bill announcement as to the happy con
dition ot th" treasury, which appeared n
few day no. was the result or It.
of course everybody would be glad to
know that the rapidly dwindling surplus
would hold out until a Uepubllcan con
gresa can Bet to work nnd straighten out
the disrupted condition ot things gcliei
ally, but nobody Is to be fooled by such
plainly unwarranted calculations as
those given out In this ense.
if It shall turn out that the major por
tion of the income tax Is to stand, fheio
need be no fear of Insurmountable ob
stacles In the way ot meeting the gov
ernment's financial obligations; but
there nre hints that the decision will be
such as to open the way for un Intermin
able number of suits In restraint that
may interfere with the collection of tho
tax from any source and that would
be little short ot a calamity.
It would be unfortunate for the coun
try to have another season of distrust
come on. lluslness Is looking up all over
the country since the close of the Dem
ocratic congress. It Is tho unlveisal be
lief no other disturbance need bo feared
from that quarter. The Income tax, un
necessary nnd unwise as It was In Its
Inception, was settled upon to carry the
treasury through the calendar year, and
It Is to the common Interest that It
should .stand rather than project upon
the country another peilod ot distrust
nnd consequently delay the return ot
business and Industrial activity.
Whatever the letter ot the court's de
cision may be. tho month ot May will
demonstrate to a reasonable certainty
whether or not the government Is to be
embarrassed In meeting Its obligations
up to the assembling of the new con
giess, and In the meantime the average
looker-on may amuse himself in noting
the undlpgulsable evidences ot anxiety
in administration circles nt Washington.

That is cheering news which comes by
way of Jefferson City to the effect that
there Is a prospect of the supreme court
deciding that the recorder of voters
must produce tho ballot boxes betore the
grand Jury. Kminent lawyers say that
tile effect of the decision, If It Is made,
will be to remove the limitations which
have rested upon the powers of the
grand Jury, nnd to enable that splendid
body to go to tho very bottom ot the
Ornnd Juries nre pretty powerful bod
ies, but they cannot do everything. Hut
any decision of the courts which will
give the grand Jury the power to make
I he fullest investigation into election
frauds will be welcomed by the people of
this city. The grand Jury has done ex
cellent work already, and if Its powers
are sulllclently enlarged It can do some
much better work.
The representative citizens of this city
stund for the probing of those outrago
oUs frauds to the very bottom. The
Bang is already badly frightened, but
worse things nre In store for It. If the
Brand jury Is enabled to examine tho
ballot boxes and the other election rec
ords heretofore denied to it, nnd Is also
enabled to exercise the additional pow
ers which woultl be conferred by such n
decision as has been referred to, there
is hope that t I.-ast nn i"-pnvx!matfon

How lliiwlts Train Their Voitng.
The oung of falcons and hawks are well
I tnlned by their parents, '-'torn the time
they arc strong enough lo pull at and
break up the quarries brought to ihein, It is
one long course of Instruction. The old
birds know perfectly well what tho young
ones will have to do. and they get them
lit ror doing It as "oon as they can. They
compel them to take long lllghts day after
dav. and teach them how to sloop that Is,
nit Ike at their quurry. One or the other
will shoot up with a portion of feather, or
il may be fur. followed by the young hopeful.-.
Then tin- morsel is dropped from the
clinch down tK-v dash for It, and the one
that makes Hi- quickest stoop secures the
prize before It reaches the ground. When

The men attending the conference feel
that the general people have been preju

count of the wrong doing qf the members
of the rtnh church, and wherever they go
they preach their doctrines so as to over
come this objection and give a proper Idea
of the church they represent and the doc
trines they teach. "Ours is not a gospel
or gloom," said L'ldcr Sheehy, In talking
of the church. "HV are not well under

there will be services, nnd each afternoon

One of the most Important and prominent
figures In the gathering, and one who is
respected as of great value to the church.
Is the well known I5lder 15. C. Ilrlggs, of
low a. Ho bears the distinction of having
been the tlrst minister to preach n sermon
In Salt Lake City differing from the Hrlg
haiii loung Mormon doctrine. It was In
1W3 Unit he was sent there by the church
to carry the gospel message. He met with
the most violent opposition at tho hands of
the I'tah Mormons and his pathway was
made very rough. He was for a long time
unable to secure n place In which to hold
services mull an Lpiscopal lady, Mrs.
Chief Justice Walte, who lived there,
opened her parlors one Sabbath afternoon
nnd In that room he delivered the llrst ser
mon In the city, llrlgham Young told him
personally that he must stop the sermons
or he was In danger. The Danltes tracked
him like bloodhounds for weeks In an ef
fort to take his life, hut he escaped and
llnally when their hunt for Ills life became
-o tierce, he appealed to General Connors,
of the regular army, there, for protection,
and it was given, and he and his converts
were enabled to hold their services In
peace. It was an experience well calculat
ed to try the spirit of tiny man, and yet
the elder speaks of It as one of tho lighter
tiinls of his Itinerant wotk.
The present missionary to Utah is
Hlder 11. O. Smith, of Woodbine, la. He is
also present. He Is a young man and has
had a varied experience during his thiee
years' stay In that part or Ihe country,
lie leports having hud strong opposition.

Itlshop 15. L. ICelley. of Iowa, who has
been in charge of the Temple lot litigation,
Is nlso piesent. He Is very modest in talk
ing ot his Important labors In connection
with the celebrated suit, but the tesull- uf
the battle have made him more popular
than ever with the people of the church.
Llder J. F. Hurton. who Is In chargo nf
the work on Ihe Pncltlc coast, was formetlv
a sea captain and sailed the Atlantic lor
many years. He Is a son of a llaptlst min
ister of Nova Scotia, but went to sen In
boyhood and became a skillful mariner,
unit wns contented with the life and expe
riences until he became a conveit to the
new- faith. Then he diserttd the sea and
his roving companions and went over the
land ptoclniming the Gospel. In recent
vcars he conceived the Idea of building a
boat and In It cruising the Pacific, doing
missionary work among tho Islanders. The
boat was built and was ihtistened the
l-5vnnella. and tho voyage as planned was
made, with the most pleasing icsuIih tn the
church. The cruise took the Gospel boat
down the Pacific among tho Islands, and
around and up among the South American
islands, and llnally ended with a strong
crusade In llaytl.at which place there were
some gnat results accomplished. Pictures
nf Ihe Gospel boat are on sale at the con
feience niul aie very popular. Klder Hur
ton spoke at the meeting last evening. He
Is one of the strongest talkers In the con

year the missionary of the church In
Wales uud llnglaml, Is also prestnt. He
will return to the land of his former labors
at Hie close ot the conference, nnd lenew

Picsllenl Josiph Smith Is, of course, the
cent I'll Jig ii ii- at this gathering, us he Is,
and lor tunny years has been, the acknowl
edged head of the church, and is Ihe proph
et and seer of the chinch now. It Is ex
pitted that some interesting revelations
arc lo l.e made during the g.itheilng. as the
sesslone continue from day to day. Pies
ldeut Smith is halo and sttnng, despite, the
fin I of his apparent nge. and Ills voice is
hiiotig and powerful, and his love and de
votion lo tin- chinch weie never more up-paii-nl.
Illsbop Kelley and I51rter Sheehy serve
the chinch as inembers of two of the most
Important commltties appointed In the con
feience. They ate members of tho archaeo
logical committee, and also of the Utctaturu
and history committee. In serving on tho
hitter committee It Is their duty to securi)
proof of the fact that the tontentii of the
cuiieiit hlui Ic us touching the record of
tho early days of the Mormon church are in
io curate They hope lo secuin such con
vincing testimony during their service that
Ihey will be ublii lo get the statements con
tained In Hi rcc of the leading cyclopedias
i hanged and the facta us they statu llieni
liicoiporateil In tho standard histories.
They claim ihe early history of the church
has been giossly misstated on account of
the vviong acts ot tint other wing of the
thiirch. and ihey ask Its collection simply
as an act of Justice. They are securing the,
most convincing aim compieio cn.iin ot
tluiuuy along that Hue, they claim, and will
vc it reiiuy iiussiiiiy lor
the next annual irathelltu;.
Tim other committee on which Ihey nio
serving Is quite important. In their labors
and study of iirchaeology they ore hunting
for more pioofs of tho contents of the Hook
of Mormon, as touching the piehlstnrle In
habitants and civilization of the land. They
claim the Hook of .Mormon Is correct In the
statements made concerning the ancient
civilization of this land, and that they are
seeming the most convincing evidences of It
from their archaeological examinations and
I esea relies.
IJIder Sheehy fpoko of it yckterduy, and
said- "It Is a strange nnd very peculiar
point, that the statements made in that
book concerning the ancient civilization
huve been ptuveii true In almost eveiy case
wheie exutiiluullons have beeu made. In
Ihe exact spots mentioned are lo be fuiuid
plentiful evidences, of ihe ancient cltlt-s
that Horn lulled nnd decayed ages ago, with
u civilization that Is suipilsliig as we note
the silent rvliltlit-c. We have uiateilal for
making tbul claim v.-iv strong and our ar
gument in support of that part of tho Hook
of Moiuiou Is very convincing, For the in

Then the owner put all the money back

"Now, George, the price of these bill

this morning that you didn't believe a
reputable business man would have any

Is this difference really due to a dlf
