8TATE SENATOR A. O. SMOOT.
From tho Salt Luke Herald: A. O.
Stuoot, who, Jointly with Abel John
Kvnns, will care for tho interests of
Utah county In the senate, isauatlvi
of Suit Lake City, and a son of whom
tho city Is jusily proud. Ho was born
fnrt)lw(i yuirs ago. Atthongooi 12
Ho went to Piovn. Two years Inter he
began work with tho Prnvo Co-op, and
two yenrs Inter again was ensaaed In a
iiiiTcssfiil coal umt lumber tiuiliics.
At the of 18 he went on a mission to
Knglanil, nnd, upon his return homo,
was elected assessor and collector of
Utah county, a position ho held for
eight years. He was n member of the
legislative council In 1888, nnd served
In tlio lower hotio of tho first State
legNIalnro. Uu was also in the senate
of i lie second State Inulslaiure. For tu
terms ho wa,s secretary and illieclor of
tho Stato Insane nsylum. Ho Is now
malinger of tho A. O. Smonl Lumber
company and tho Prnvo Holler mills.
Mr. SiiiooL'h buslines nciimi'ii Is un
disputed. He Is it gr-nd parliamen
tarian nnd clever debater, and when
onco ho di'cidrs on a course. hU path
way thenceforth ls-stialghtway until
his object In accomplished. Mr. Smnot
was one of tlio onglnutors of the Al
falfa club of tho (list legislature, by
means of which n niimericnlly insig
nificant Di'iuooratio minority tied the
hands of the Itepubllcan majority for
In regard to tho abovo wo will say
thut Senator Snmot wns formerly man
ager of tho Suioot Lumber company
and l'rovo Holler mills but rullroil
nbout n year ngo. He Is now devoting
his entice attention to mining.
Tho treaty of penco between tho
United States nnd Spain has been
signed by the commissioners of both
nations nnd as soon us ratified by tho
upper house of each nation tho curtain
will ho rung down on the Spanish wnr.
Tho volunteers who bravely rexponded
to tlin call of their country, who noyer
suffered a defeat, who never lost n gun
or a ling, will rut urn homo to their
anxious welcoming frlonils.nnd all will
bo ns ft was before tho cocillct, except
that Spain has lost her colonics and
the United Stntcs has taken upon ltsulf
an addod nnd unusual burden, colonial
government. No ono can sjmp.ithlzo
with Spain In her loss. Sho forc2d tho
war upon us and only received her de
serts. Leaving nsldo nil Idea of re
venge or reparation, tho wnr, as n war
of humanity, was Just. Americans can
pride themselves on the certain fact
that they "Remembered tho Maine."
Tun Fillmoro Progress prints the
following editorial screed:
Wo nro glad to sco that cx-Pollceman
Jim Williams has found lime to speak
up to Pfofesor(?) Willard Benn. This
goutiemaii is over much in evidence ot
Into as Sunday school teacher, saintly
oxhnrter, ynrluty showman mid pimll-
It-t. Let this popular person tnko
Williams' advico to "put up or shut
up." Thoro is loo much talk over ono
Wo will ho sorry for Editor GnUford
If Willard over concludes to do mis
n'.onery work In Millard county,
Utah has had mtny occasions to fool
proud of her volunteers, nod tho fol
lowing Rtutemnnt by Capt. llelford, of
MaJ.-Qen, Otls's staff is only added
proof of tho ofllcloucy nud bravery of
Tho Utnh batteries havo dono mng
nlllcont work. Their service In pro.
tectlng the advance of Colorado volun
teers In tho capture ot Manila has
made tho battel les tho pride of tho
Mus. Hutchinson, the self-confessed
woman thief of Salt Lake, was ac
quitted nnd has left for London, Eug.
No doubt Utah .vus well rid of her yet
If Justice was dono sho should bo be
hind the bars, ns a uinii would bo, or,
if Insntio us claimed, in the Stato Insti
tution for tho fenblu minded. This
Idea of consideration for tho so-onllcd
'weaker sex" wo bollcvo can bo earr(ed
Alt. tho expenses of tho Spanish wnr
tvoro mot by tho bond Issue. Tho spe
cial Internal revenue "war tax" is
bringing in vast sums of money, and
yet the President estimates a deficit for
tho year ending June SO, 181) I), of $112,
000.000. Still sumo Republicans havo
tho uervo to assert that the Dlngloy
tariff law Is a success. What rot)
Tiikuf.'s nothing like being a United
States Senator. Tho trial of Matt,
Quay of Pennsylvania on chargo of
conspiracy and mlsapproprla'tlou of
funds has been accommodatingly put
off by tho supremo court ot that State
until after the Senatorial election to
allow that old fraud to see tiro his reelection,
Col, Wm. J. IJiiyan has rosigned
from tlio army. Ho Is not a paper
soldlor, tho war 1 over, consequently
his field of labor Is at homo. We ale
glad ho has resigned. Wo need him In
the campaign for blmotallmn prepara
tory to tho great battlo in 1000.
