Washi.noton, Oct. 31. Tbe Utah Coin
nissloni rs are in town talking with their
rlctids and Asking what can be done about
he failure of tbe E linunds bill and tbelr
nis'uiii. Of course tbey are loth to admit
hat they have made a failure of their mis
Ion, and, lndeed.it is scarcely fair to
pak of the failure as thelr'a. TUey havo
.uuttte l,n m .u mm tfcy could under
Ik Rlrcumstanoea, but the circumstance,
rero against them. The Eaiautida bill,
loubtle-a, disfranchised a fev people, but
hey were so .mall a proportion of the eu
re ' iium'oer that it has not, as was Intend
d, thrown the gorerumeut into tbe hands
f the "Gentiles. ' uor Is tnete much pros
leot thit It will. Only one Morman In
evti is a polygamlat, and yet tbe other six
.re perfectly willing to go to tae polls and
lo bis entire bidding, and all the more
eiuliiy because he Is debarred for "rishte
uiMiess' sake." It is stated that the Com
idtsioners will ask that a law be passed
ip.vt winter, requiring pub
ic record of a marriage in
Jtah a necessary feature of Its legality,
'his will, tbey think, enable tbe euforcti
nent of tbe laws and enable them to prose
tito parties for polyamv. It Is whispered
tore tbat isit Just possible that the Mormons
f they ar" pushed too hard, may decide to
;ive up tbifeature of their religion. It is
lardly probable, however. It is probablo
hat an effort will be made at thli session to
lissolve the Territorial government and ere
,te a new one by appointment of the Presi
lent, with directions that It frame a state
onstltution and prepare Utah to enter the
ifterhood of States. And it is supposed
hat the new State would be Democratic;
his is not improbable.

Mi-s Muicabey was ready in her rich wed

Sk.w York, Oct. 31. The ,'illures of
M.iiris Ranger and H. H. Forman A Co.,
cotton brokers, Liverpool, do not cause
any concern In this ci y. At the New York
Cotton Exchange it was said no effect was
looked for In the American market. M.
B. Fielding, president of the Cotton Ex
change, expressed the oplnlou
that the New York market
will be affect.'d by the Liver
pool failures. He considers tho
ahs nee of the marginal clause in the con
tracts entered into in the Liverpool market
a- making these transactions more risky,
wi He ihe American system of railing for
margins tends to keep parties up with the
market of the day and prevents any materi
al loss to any individual. Losses in that
way become so distributed, when they do
occur, tbat no one is seriously affected
thereby. If such a system existed in Liver
pool, the extensive failure of yesterday
wotiid not have occurred.
