A. New Revelation.
Williani " Jennings some little
time ago, was understood to tell the
priesthood of the Mormon Church
in council, regarding the presure
being brought to bear upon the
polygamous doctrine and practice
of the church, that in his judge
ment, one of three courses must be
pursued in order to save Mormon
ism as an institution from ruin. It
was that the church must emigrate
to some country where polygamy
could be practiced without interfer
ence ; must obey the laws, or whip
the government of the United Stat
es. It required no philosopher or
statesman to see that, and under
stand it. John Taylor and all the
old heads of the church realized it.
and since the declaration in Presi
dent Cleveland's inaugural, that
"polygamy shall be suppressed,"
they have lost all hope of hoodwin
king the new administration by
airy olfVinethods, into lettir
negira to some foreign lanu, anc
the discovery of that promisd land
wherein the laws and public senti
ment would, tolerate mormomsm
with polygamy, is apparent at sin
gle glance. No where under the
sun can the two stand together,
short of a conquest of some coun
try by force of arms.
Turkey might recieve the Mor
mons with their polygamy, but not
their religion. They would have
to become Mohammedans there
Any christian country in the world
would offer them shelter without
their polygamy : no . government
would receive them and tolerate
their usurpation of political power,
either as a church or a community
and no one knows these facts bet
ter than the Mormon leaders them
selves, They know that the United
States affords more liberty under
tne law than .any government on
God's footstool. A wholesale emi
gration therefore would not be prac
ticable or desirable. The talk about
whipping the United States Gov
ernmedt, they all know to be mere
childishness. The Government has
set its strong arm to enforce the
laws here in Utah, Arizona and
Idaho. They know there is course
left open to them but to submit,
after perhaps many religio-political
somersaults, much trifling and ma
ny exhibitions of bad faith, but ul
timately and finally to submit to
the laws and take their hands from
the throat of the state. Delays and
dela3Ts have sufficed them in the
past. They are now in the pres
ence of their greatest difficulty.
They are face to face with the in
evitable, but their superabundant
faculty for cunning and trickery
may enable them to dodge once
more, only to meet with more de
termination and less mercy in the
next round. Something must be
done. The course has been decid
ed upon, as John Taylor, George
Q. Cannon, the Twelve Apostles,
Feramorz Little, Bishop Clawson,
John T. Cain,Bishop Sharp, and
William Jennings, all probably full
well know. It is, that, at the com
ing conference, if one can be
together long enough and with a
sufficient number of the leaders
present, a proclamation shall be is
sued from John Taylor as President
of the Mormon Church, its prophet
seer and-reveiator, commanding all
Mormons to give up the practice of
polygamy and come back within
the laws. In truth and fact, to do
that which this journal has been
urging them to do for years. But
how to do it is the difficulty. That
the Government would grant a gen
eral amnesty, there is little doubt ;
provided something more substan
tial than the mere word of these
life long tricksters could be offered
as a pledge of good faith that ' the
laws-in the future would be strictly
obeyed. Temples have, been and
are being erected all over this Ter
ritory, in which to solemnize in
profound secrecy their unlawful
marriages. While they stand they
stand they are a contradiction to
any light or wordly pledges which
Mr. Taylor and his partners could
give. Their word may be good as
coin with Benedict, Hall & Co., or
Claflin in New York for Merchan
dise, but their bond- in any sum
thrice secured by gold bullion in
the United States Treasury, would
not be a pledge sufficient to guar
rantee their good faith.
Some of their chief men are un
der indicment for violations of the
Edmunds' law : many more ought
to be. These men could make the
pledge good during their natural
lives by entering into a compro
mise with the Government to plead
guilty and have sentence suspended
during such time as the pledge to
cease the practice of polygamy
should be faithfully carried out.
In no other wray could the faith of
these men be sufficiently plighted.
Anything short of that would
proove a delusion and a snare on
the first change of public officials
in Utah. In the mean time -the
authorities of Arizona are under
stood to have been approached in
this matter by two missionaries of
the Mormon Church, with the as
surance that the proclamation abol
ishing polygamy was to be made
in a short time by the xrophet, but
whether any compromise was effect
ed in that Territory or not, has not
been learned. But compromise or
no compromise, the church is to-
dar in that condition where it has
got to take the step of giving up its
pet institution, and within the next
few weeks, if our reliability we
think it does, from every pulpit in
every-ward in Zion, the bishop will
formerly announce the fact. Then
many old wives who have borne
cros"s of thorns will be made glad
and young wives who have lived in
lawful wedlock under the shadow
of a terrible fear, will emerge into
the sunlight and gaze out uponihe
cloudless horizons of their future to
A Simple Gold Test.
Foi testing gold, make a liquid
consisting of nitric acid one ounce,
water two drams and muriatic acid
one-half scruple. Mix the ingredi
ents well, and keep the solution in
a bottle with a glass, stopper. With
a glass rod which has been dipped
in the mixture touch the metal and
watch the action. If no effect is
produced on the metal it is either
gold or gold plated. . If the gold is
very low or jess man nine Karai,
the acid will boil green, and metal
is at once detected by the mark left
by the acid To test silver, apply
a drop of a solution of nitric acid
three ounces, water one ounce and
bichromate of potash one-half
ounce, and wipe off the drop imme
diately with a sponge and water.
If a blood red mark results, the
metal is silver or the article is sil
ver plated. -Ex.
Water for Blasting: Purposes.
The use of water in connection
with blasting in mines and quarries
is rapfdly extendiiig in-this comitiy.j
and in Europe, A tube filled with
waters is inserted in the bore hole
next the powder cartridge, the tube
being of tliin plate or even of paper.
The usual tamping follows, and
when the explosion occurs the tube
containing the water is burst, the
explosive violence is increased by
the presence of the water and ex
tended over the enlarged interior
area of the bore 'hole, due to the
space occupied by the water tube.
A much larger quantity of the ma
terial to be mined or quarried is
thereby brought down or loosened
with a smaller quantity of explosive
used, while the heat of the explo
sion converts a portion of the water
into steam, which, with the remain
ing water, extinguishes the flame
and absorbes and neutralizes the
gases and smoke generated.
According to the reading of the
recently passed fee bill, the record
er is instructed to keep "office
hours," the sheriff "business hours"
and the county treasurer to keep
his office open from 10 a. m. to 4
p. m. Cyn.
