H , A vote on the prohibition legislation is due
M probably next week. It now seems that the wild
ll country members, heeled by Heber J.f will vote"-
H i her-through, but that in the senate a different
H y r story will be written. The desertion of the Smoot
H i ; crowd by Badger, who. has ecclesiastical ambi-
H i tions, is the most sorrowful spectacle of the week's

mony with the alleged beliefs of those assaulting
r'L him may w .1 create doubts as to the genuine
'If bigness and manliness of the church president.
i1 Air. Smith and Mr. Roberts are antagonistic po-
Ht Htlcally. President Smith and Fussy Jimmy are
M if' not. Only when Fussy says Joseph F. Is opposed
B i to prohibition is there something doing, and doing
B 1 1 "right smart." "W3io shall explain the ways of
!man even without a mind?
As a tree is known by the fruit It bears, so
surely may a man be judged by the tools he em-
t ploys to consummate his purposes. Consider the
ftwj federal bunch (how they odorize!), the elect of
M Smoot's political bosom. No decent man in the
M: state but would feel degraded to confess his ob-
m ligation for political preferment to them. Yet
M they are as a voice in the widnerness proclaiming
B ' the doctrine of atomic minds and wormy ways
' from Smoot up. And while Heber J. Grant, the
H ! Cyrano de Bergerac of the church, serenades the
H i saints in behalf of prohibition, the Smoot tools
H control the state, buy, barter, browbeat and He
H as of yore to prevent prohibition, and by that pre-
H venting pay their debt to the brewers, whose pur-
1 chase of the federal bunch defeated the American
1 party in this county last fall.
All the ehurch officials are pronounced for
prohibition. They adopt prohibition .u each sue-
r ceeding conference. "Why, then, Is the voice ot
H the personal representative of President Roose-
H velt In the United States Senate the senior Sen-
Bl ator and Apostle from Utah liltless in this grand
H prohibition diapason? Could so free a one have
W dreamed of the alleged bargain between the
H brewers and saloon men and the federal bunch

H to the raping of Utah by the liquor interests that

agonies, NO! That serene and august soul, that
stupendous intellect, when not embedded in the
preservation of the forests for his sheep inter
ests, is heeding the dulcet and restrained ad
monition of the zephyrlc Teddy whose veritable
voice the Apostle Senator is even as Aaron was
the voice of Moses Moses, like Teddy, having lit
tle to say and saying it divinely.
All the hustle and bustle and prohibition and
anti-prohibition turmoil in the little speck called
Utah is as far from the ear throbs of the gentle
and courteous and long-suffering Senator-Apostle
as Moore's layde faire, when she was
"Far from the land where her young hero sleeps."
And so when the angry waves of contention
have subsided and the Borean blasts of prohi
bition and the Antarctic breezes of open saloons
shall have been stilled, calm and serene, from
the east, like
"The morn in russet mantle dresst,"
The senior Apostle-Senator will descend upon
his "beloved Utah, and painful amazement limning
his glorious and radiant countenance, will, in re
proachful and tender tones, enquire: "What's
been the matter wi.u you fellows? Who'se done
this and what's he done it for?"
Can citizens be sufficiently grateful for this
one to accept the office of United States Senator
from Utah? Am1 at what personal sacrifice he
accepts the place he alone can know unless, per
haps perhaps the great loss suffered by him
can in measure be appreciated by Judge W, H.
King, who, too, knows what it is to accept office
so violently distasteful.
What a lot of arrant hypocrites we are! Con
template the conditions in Utah the atoms that
control it politically the atmosphere of deceit
and insincerity that surrounds and pervades our
whole political life and is it not true, that in
moments of retrospection and consequent disgust
we often wonder if there be a sincere man left in
the state unless ho is dead or has never been in
politics? A. K. Mac--.
