There Is (lunger of the Utah plank
lu tho Hipulillcan platform being
distanced and out of date before
tho -Ith of March next. It declares
tho political power of the Mormon
church a menace to free institutions,
nnd pledges the republican party to
appropriate legislation to divorce
the political from the ecclesiastical
Mwer. Can the keen and vigilant
politicians who framed these resolu
tions bo Ignorant of the fact that
the Mormon hierarchy Ih deprived
of its former money power, and has
thus forfeited a large share of its
political (loiiiliiiilloiiV "Ho (hut
carrl"s the bug," says an Ungllsh
reviewer, "has many forces at his
bauk; but an empty sack cannot

told of the enforcement of the law
of congress which limits (Improperly
of a church establishment lu tho
territories to $60,000. Under this
iron statute the Mormons in Utah
have been coiniHillcd to deliver up
to a United Ktates tecelver costly
temples and other church buildings,
valuable city property and tracts of
fertile land, timbered canyons and
witter courses, railroad and telegraph
stock, herds of cattle and Hocks of

ciiinulutlonsof nearly half a century.
Yesterday a Washington dispatch
gave a list of county Judges in Utah
appointed by the president. Wo
will explain the slguillcamv of (his
proceeding. In territories the
chief executive and Judicial olllcors
are itpKlutcd by the pnvddcnt, and
their salaries paid out of the national
treasury, lint the legislature, the
county and municipal olllcors are
elected by the oopUi. The district

bogus divorces wan for a time a
source of large revenue, and the
judge, the countyclcrk andthecorn
missioned being all of a kidney,
the flagtllouH job they would put
up to defraud the property holders
would give the uninitiated anew Idea
ofdlvlne revelation. To break up
this malign combination, the Edmunds-Tucker
bill vested in the
President tho power of appointment
to local ofllcc In Utah. This raised
a yell, of course, as a deprivation of
the sacred rights of a people; but It
became a law, and the appoint
ment mentioned above are In ful
fillment of Its provisions. This in
troduction of unrcgenerato Gentiles
into the sacred precinct of those
abominable county court is another
revolution In Israel. It is further
evidence that the Lord has gone
back on Ills chosen people, and Is so
futiil to the iKilitical power of Mor
mon priesthood, that the divorce to
be decreed between that and their
ecclcsiasticul domination will be
u n necessary, as tho latter function
has already ceased to exist. Icha
bod, may now the sons of the cove
nant exclaim the glory lias depart
ed from Israel.
Tlie Roman poet says Itisplcaniit
antl becoming to die for one's
country. Patriotic sentiment has
changed a little since then, and we
now find It pleasant and sometimes
profitable to live in tho civil service
of the country. Hut the poet's sen
timent must lutve inspired our
nation's hero who died, as it may le
said, with the harness on his buck.
Newspapers and public speakers
have all hud their say at this
national bereavement, and we have
yet to come across tho first writer or
speaker who has thrown out a word
of disparagement on the record of
this brilliant soldier. The American
people regard him to-day, Just as
they did when Gen. Lee surrendered
his sword to Grant at Appomattox.
And the secret of this unmeasured
popularity is the fact that he has
always been content to remain
simply a soldier. If lie hud any
ambition to shine In civil life he
never displayed It. If he hud
chosen to allow his name to be used
in th wprlny, liu u-utiltl uuiicstloii
ably have been die republican
nominee for president. Rut as soon
as tho suggestion was made to him,
the old soldier Hew Into a rage and
declared If he were nominated he
would peremptorily decline.
The three names most prominent
ly identified with the war In the
minds of the jsniplo are Grunt,
Sherman and Sheridan. The fatal
mistakes that the hero of
AppoinaUox made in" civil life are
well remembered, and they have
cast a blot on an otherwise glorious
career. Hhurumn has held no civil
ollhv, but he Is liosltlvo and out
spoken, and he rather courts than
avoids acihiionious dWcusslou with
nowsputKT K'oplo and historians of
the war. From all such entangle
ments, however, "Little Phil," with
it modesty and good house that are
as eoiiiinondublo us (hey uro rare,
litis kept entirely fan). Ho was a
soldier, pure and simple, and us
such his memory Is cherished and
loved by the nation. To luirrow

TIiom) crazy people in Stevens
county, Kuu., who lost their heads
over the location of the county soat,
and took to shooting each other us a
pastime, seem to have come to their
senses at length. A regiment of
state militia was quartered among
them to keep hmiv, and arrests were
mudo of a number of men suspected
of complicity In tho massacre. This
svoms to have brought them to a
reiiMUitihle view of things. The
pickets that the two rival towns
hud thrown out, to prevent the In
habitants of one place Invading the
territory of the other, were with
drawn, and meetings held In which
coiumlttcott wore appointed to ex
tend ollVtnt urpeHco (o the other side.
Those neighbor towns will como to
an undsrstandltik' and no more
blood will bo shed over the point at
Uue; but the painful fact romalns
that live men wore wantonly slmigh-
tored and the public pence profaned

corporations are entitled to select

should bo required to select, where
possible, from tracts in which set
tlers have no legal or equitable In

A AVashinoton dispatch to aNew
York Journal notes tho fact that a
number of men, not previously
known, have made national reput
ations in the house of representa
tives during tho present session,
while other members, of whom much
was expected, have hardly been
heard from. The reason for this Is
very plain. A new issue requiring
scientific knowledge and unbiased
thought has como into politics, and
new men of ability havo seized the
opportunity thus presented, while
those who merely echo the old war
cries have very naturally fallen Into

By reason of the state of chronic
incredulity in which many men
pass their lives they miss half the
good of this world. They seem to
think that doubt and unbelief are
proofs of wisdom, and through fear
of being deceived reject much that

the statement that Dr. Pierce's Gol
den Medical Discovery is a real and
proven cure for all diseases caused
by a torpid liver, bud blood or scrof
ulous numors carries wan it us own
condemnation. They do not believe
it, apparantly, because we say so;
and j'et what more, or less, than this
can we do? Wo know tho fncts, nnd
