WHY LEVY ANY TAXES?
If there call lie any sort of reavnai;ile
defense of the policy of the prese .nt
administration of city governlment, why
should there be any levy of taxes upon the.
property and legitimate business of the
city? It is the chaste notion of the
citizen of Idaho who temporarily occlupies
the ollice of mayor that the taxpayers of
this city are int favor of lessening their
own lurdens of governmnent by etngaginll;
in partnership writh crime and prostitution.
Therefore it has been the policy of tile
adminii tration to employ public servants
in the protection of vice and crime in
consideration of the paynment of certa:;t
parts or percenltages of earnings or
revenues to city officials to he applied to
the expenses of city govcrnmtent, after the
cost of entertaining official guests has
If public sentiment in Butte will
tolerate this sort of conduct of public
businlss, and there is to be no interference
by law officers of the county and state,
why limlit these clear, clean profits to a
paltry $3,ooo per Imonth? Why levy ally
taxes at all? The possibilities of
government resources under the benieflenit
plan of the enterprising and scrupulously
honest Ihlullins have been little imore than
discovered to date. All that is tecessary
is dlvcvllptieit. I;ivciI the opportunity

administration from its accumulations

GEN. WRIGHT PROMOTED
President Roosevelt appears to have dis
armed his critics in selecting a successor
to Judge Taft as Governor-General of the
Philippines. Gen. Luke R. Wright, a mem
ber of the Philippines commission and vice
governor of the islands, is promoted to the
post of larger responsibilities and higher
honor. The dispatches recite that he has
demonstrated his fitness for the place by
his administration during the absence of
)his superior, that he is popular with the
Filipinos as well as the Americans, and
that he i. a life-long Democrat. This is
an example of executive fidelity to ap
proved methods for the betterment of the
civil service, at once practical and con
spicuous. It furnishes the most conclusive
evidence that President Roosevelt gives
first consideration to the interests of the
natives in the now possessions and will not
permit the official positions there to be re
garded as additions to party patronage.
Perhaps the action may be called a polit
ical play because it is so conspicuously de
signed to command the approval of voters
of all parties, but good government achieve
meunt cannot be safely eriticiselad mnerely
because they are recognized as accessories
to good politics.
The retirement of Secretary Root and
the appointment of Judge Taft as his suc
cessor have long been anticipated, and the
official announcement of the facts is only
a perfection of the official records and an
extension of the customary rfflicial cour
tesies. The occasion serves to remind the
public that our strenuous executive still re
tains a majority of the members of I'resi
dent McKinley's cab~inet as his advisers,
and is keeping faith with his early an
nounced purpose to carry out the known
policies of his lamented predecessor to the
best of hIts ability.
BARGAINS AT TAMMANY'S
Tammany overlooks few opportunities to
promt.' trale. l'h sachems are skillfui
a~ivertliers and know the value of har
gain, in attracting the iliticians. Just at
preselnt 'Tammlany is niaking great and
elaborate replaraltions for 'business with
the next city administration of New York.
No triue Tammiany :man c;res a rap who
is president, so long as Tammany controls
patronage and contracts in the metropolis.
To TammIany one aldermnan is worth two
cabtinet ministers, and a few thousand
votes at a municilpal election is more to be
desired than the New York State delega
tion at a national convellntin.
The story about a proposed trade be
tween '1anumany leaders and friends of
t;rover ('levelalul becoming public inop
portunely through the to great volubility
of a trusted frietul of a Tammany leader
is worthy Tatllllany. The story is almost
as useful as the trade could be. Cleveland
is strong in New York city with those
elements which are strong against Tam
anlny. The illre suggestionn that Tanm
many will -favor a Cleveland delegation
from New York state to the next national
convention will give ipause to independent
action. An assurance that Tammany is
right on the Cleveland question will give
support to Tammany in the municipal
campaign. The fact that the inlepenllnts
will have to deliver their votes first is an in
fluence to promolnte the harmony of action.
The Tailltnany vote is a luclh better lpur
chase for future delivery than the in
dependent ballot, and the Intlependents
know it just as well as Tammany does.
Such a swap will biring a great shock to
Mr. Itryan and will increase his already
souftcient contempt for Mr. Cleveland.
Yet there is nut the slightest reason for
even a suspicion that the ex-president
has had any part in the scheme or even
altppoves it. (On the other hand, the
..lebraska leader never has missed oppor
itlnity to cater fr Tammllllany lbusiness.
In any view of the proprieties, which
have not been a controlling influence in
iemocratic conlvelltions inl recent years,
the spectacle of Tammany yelling for
('leveland at the next gathering of democ
racy will be novel and exciting, and quite
likely to obscure the influence of the Ne
braska delegation in noticeable manner.

STRAY LEAF IN WAR HISTORY
Potent influenoee Whih Seved Call.
fornia to the Union in 1860.
[Goodwin's Salt Lake Weekly.]
A man who was a child 49er, for his
father carried him from Tennessee to
California in that year, was telling the
other day why California was saved to the
union, why, perhaps, the confederacy was
overthrown. "It was this way," he said.
"The young men from the South were bet
ter organized in California than many peo
Ile nowadays think. I was a captain,
though my own father did not know it,
and as the news came day by day and week
l,y week from the East, we were all grow
ing in impatience to take a hand. Had it
come to a test it would have been a
bloodly one for California for a dozen pre
vious years had been a good school. In
those days quarrels were swiftly settled
and in the most direct way as a rule.
Most of us were practiced in the use of
weapons and it was understood that no
body was afraid. Then General Albert
Sidney Johnston was in command at Al
catraz, and there were plenty of arms and
vast stores of anmmunitioin within tile fort.
Johnston was a great soldier. In the
Mexican war General Worth has said that
Johnston came nearer filling his perfect
idea of a soldier than any man he had
ever seen. This was the Worth who was
left for dead at I.undy's l.ane, hurled
down by the same charge of grape that
broke the shoulder of General Worth; the
s;,me Worth who had taken the BIlack
FIort and Monterey; who carried his comn
mand from V\ra ('rug to Chapultapec and
who at Molen-del-fiay multiplied himself
into a host and won the day against fear
ful odds, almo,st against fate itself. So
such praise from such a soldier was praise,
indeed. Still we were all afraid of Albert
Sidney JJhnston. lie was a good confed
erate all tight. lie proved that when he gave
his life for it at Shiloh, but his honor
was more to him than his life and he went
to take command at Alcatraz by order of
the government if the United States, and
the government trusted hint to hold it. To
turn the fort over as Twiggs did his
forces in Texas would have been to be
tray the trust and we feared him. When
lie was s ,unded on the subject by our fore
most Southern men in California he
quickly gave them to understand that so
soon as he could get away honorably his
purpose was to resign, return to his own
Mississippi and front that state offer his
services to the confederacy, but never
while he wore the blue uniform would he
betray uis trust.
"It is still tohl, indeed, it is history, that
the government at Washington secretly
sent General Sumner to California to su
persede Johnston, that the Pacific mail
steamship before pulling up to her wharf
in San Francisco stopped at Alcatraz, and,
General Sumner disembarking, met Gen
eral Johnston at the pier where Johnston
hadl gone to receive whatever visitor might
bie coming, and informed him that he had
come to take command. It was good work
on the part of the government, but it was
unnecessary, for he had known for days
that it was impossible for Sidney John
ston to do anything that looked like
"Some, indeed, hoped against hope until
the papers one morning announced that
the fort with its stores was under the con
trol of a union soldier. Then a good many
like Colonel Harry I. Thornton and Judge
Terry, rushed away to the South, but most
of us waited, believing the opportunity
would come for us later. One thing wor
ried us. The coolest-headed Southern men
of the old school, those who had voted to
make California a free state, opposed our
purpose. They insisted that we must not
begin hostilities and plunge the state into
war. San Francisco was under federal
guns, which we had nothing to fight
against. Our hope was that France and
England would send a fleet to break the
power of the government there, but in
stead of that, one morning the Russian Pa
cific squadron entered the Golden Gate
and we knew by the way it was received
that It came by appointment; the same as
did the Atlantic squadron of the same na
tion that entered New York harbor about
the same time. When, later, Mr. Seward
paid $7,24o,ooo for Alaska and the demo
cratic press raved against the extravagance,
the editors did not know that the $7,ooo,
noo was to recompense Russia for her part
in the work of bluffing France and England,
and that the $240,000 was to. pay for the
coal the fleets used in coming and going to
and from our ports.
.."But there were other thrings going on,
and some of them, looking back and re
menmbering it all, seem like destiny.
There was a clergyman in San Francisco,
Rev. Dr. Scott, whom we southern-born
men were very proud of. He was tall
and large, and handsome as was Saul to
look upon; he had been educated by
Andrew Jackson and had absorbed into
his own soul much of the fire of the
old soldier who was his patron. lie was
as eloquent as he was learned and hand.
some, and in secret we called him one
of the church militant.
"But early in s86o there had come to
San Francisco from Boston a little man who
had blegn to preach in a Unitarian church
in the Bay City. He was not at all dis
tinguished looking, compared with Dr.
Scott; he was what David must have
been to Golish. But those who went to
hear him preach began to tell strange
tales about him. They said he had a
lute in his throaa, that his voice had
stolen all the tones from the winds and
from the deep sea, that when he spoke
he was transformed, almost transfigured,
that his hearers forgot all about his size
and set enchanted as though listening to
some great organ with trumpet accompani
ment. His fame grew day by day and the
next Sabbath after Sumpter was fired
upon the church where he preached could
not accommodate half who sought to enter.
Those who heard him that day went away
half in a daze, but thrilled as they never
had been before. He claimed that in a
crisis like that which had come upon the
country, patriotism was the highest ex
pression of religion and then his appeal
was for union and frgpdom. That was
the beginning and he followed it up day
by day and week by week, a winged
evangel which men could not resist, Once
or twice Dr. Scott sought to neutralize his
influence, but it was in vain. He was
learned enough, eloquent enough, but it
was too late to justify slavery and seces
sion in San Francisco. Broderick and
Ferguson had been killed, the north-men
had become' resolved and destiny was hav
ing its way. Then in October, 1861, the
body of General Baker was brought.back
from the war, and the tears with which he
was received were as ominous as shotted
