THE ARRANGEMENT OF THE TICKETS.
The ofTlclal bnllot for this county, as
officially made up, placed the American
ticket directly between the straight Re
publican bailor nhd the straight Demo
cratic ballot. The Republican ballot
was given first place, as was quite
This was the best possible arrange
ment, as affording members of the
American party the most convenient
way of voting for RoOKevclt or for Par
ker as they might choose. Its advantage
was toward the Republican side, as
presenting the Republican electors" first,
and thus inviting the American voter
to mark In their names and then easily
pass to the American ticket.
But this did not suit the , Smootttcs.
They would rather see Roosevelt lose
votes than see the American ticket put
before the Democratic ticket. Accord
ingly, they remonstrated, and had the
positions of the ballots changed, eo as
0 put tho Democratic ticket next to th
Republican, and so make it more con
venient for the voter to vote for the
Democratic electors and Judicial candi
dates than for him to vote for the Re
publican candidates for those several
It was a vry stupid blunder from the
Republican party standpoint; but it
brings forward again in emphasized
form the special hatred which the
Smoothes bear toward the Americans,
and their reckless tactics born of that
hate. "What do they care If the Demo
cratic electors are given the advantage
that this reorganized arrangement will
afford? What do they care for Roose
velt? Isn't The Tribune supporting
Roosevelt, and Is not their rage against
this paper sufficient to overbalance
their love for Roosevelt?
As an exhibition of petty spite against
the Americans of Utah, this act of the
Smoothes will be a ridiculous failure In
Its ltoped-for effect of minimizing the
American vote. But it will attack the
Roosevelt strength, and was no doubt
so designed; for the fanatical rage of
the Smoothes would rather see Roose
velt beaten in this State than to have
to confess that it was the American
vote that gave him the State, as later
on they may bo obliged to do.
Spite and peanuts are small and mean
inspirations for real political manage
ment; but when the managers have no
capital to go on but spite and peanuts,
why, of course, there Is nothing for
them to do but to use what they have.
4 . UNDUE FEAR IN PANAMA.
The authorities of Panama are un
duly exercised by the fear of encroach
ment by the United States. It was not
to be expected that the exercise of the
delegated sovereignty over the canal
strip would be viewed by the Panamans
with complacency, for their reservation
of the two cities at the respective
termini of the canal from the conceded
exercise of that sovereignty showed
their desire to keep in their own hands
the handling of all the Imports and ex
ports. But the finding of a port more con
venient for the operatlong In the build
ing :of the canal was a stroke of good
luck which it could hardly be expected
that the United States would not take
advantage. The gravity of the fearg
of the natives, however, is seen In
the determination of the President to
send Secretary Taft to the Isthmus to
calm the fears of the fearful. That the
Secretary will be fully able to do this
doeo not admit of any doubt, for his
abllltyand tact in dealing with primi
tive peoples has beii fully attested by
his great achievements In the Philip
pines, and the respect that the- Filipinos
have for him.
THE RESERVATION OPENING.
Surveyor-General Anderson Is to be
co'mplimented on the completion at this
early day of all the field work on the
surveys of the Uintah reservation. It
has been a long Job to get this all done,
and there were many obstacles In the
way. But now that it Is finished, there
will be ample time to prepare the maps,
and ge't ready for the approval of the
work In Washington, and the prepara
tion of- the regulations, under the law,
for the-openlng in March next.
No doubt there will be many appli
cants for tracts that may be taken
nfter the Indian allotments are made,
but there Is not likely to be nny great
rush, as the method of drawing by lot
for choice will no doubt prevail. The
Rio Grande YVestem, it Is understood,
is preparing to get out a folder in con
nection with this reservation opening,
as txmo of the roodB did for the opening
of the Roaebud reservation In South Da
kota last summer."
The resignation of Mr. Alfales Young
.from the Fre Library board Is a mis
fortune to the library. He was the one
who best understood what the library
should be made, and was untiring In his
energy and zeal to bring it up to the
point where It would be a pride to the
city, and would contain what a public
library here should contain. The re
puted reason for his resignation Is also
vcri much to his credit, this being, as
reported, that he wished to defer con
sideration of the question of raising sal
aries of the librarian and employees un
til the new library building Is fitted up,
and the trustees could ascertain Just
what their money will enable them to
do. And that Is precisely what should be
done. It was'a mlstako In the majority
of the board to force the raise of com
pensation at this time.
Mr. Buckrier Chipley of Pcnsacola,
Florida, has received from Honduras a
concession to tap 12,500,000 pine trees for
turpentine. He Is to pay one cent for
each tree tapped, or $125,000, within two
years. The enterprises he will establish
are expected to give a large trade, not
only In the sale of turpentine, but in
purchase of machinery and supplies
for the colony to be established,
THE NEWS OH REAL RELIGION.
Onco In a while the Deseret News will
lnrlst upon having a political editorial.
Its latest effusion of this character la
under tho title of "A Real Religion."
Possibly the News will contend that
Its leader was not intended to be po
litical, but merely commercial. If ho,
we will accept Its explanation as being
far better than our own Interpretation
of a moat complicated essay.
The News says that "Mormonlsm Is a
real religion, practical In Its nature
not a mere sentimental, devo
tional, rhapsodical, up-In-the-alr night
of fancy. It dealt with men
and things as they are now, and there
fore It combines the temporal and tho
Surely the article of the News Is not
Intended as a religious dissertation; It
would be a silly waste of words viewed
Irom that standpoint. Most religions
are real. Religion In the abstract is
real. Tho Mormons are not the only
people who have suffered for and have
been sustained by the realities of a
Assuming that the article Is political,
let us see: The News says that "Mor
monlsm deals with men as they are
now." At least the leaders of the church
deal with men as they are now. They
not only deal with men, but they deal
In men and In the rights of men. The
temporal iowcr, which the News asserts
Is a part of the religion, Is utilized as
an autocracy more complete than that
which Is swayed by King or Emperor.
They say in effect to one man: "We
nullify your rights as a citizen and you
shall not enjoy the dignities of the office
to which the Constitution of the United
States is a guarantee that you may
Justly aspire." And to another man
they say In effect: "To your Constitu
tional privileges we give our sovereign
approval, and you shall hold the highest
office within the gift of your fellow
citizens of the commonwealth. That
you are unequipped by character and
education and disqualified because of
other responsibilities to hold the place,
matters not, since our benlson has been
J pronounced. This alone consecrates you
to a sufficiency."
They say in effect to political parties:
"We hold in our hands the control of
the balance of power In five States of
the Union. Pledge to us personal Im
munity from certain threatened conse
quences of our own ac.ts, and we will
deliver to you as If they were hostages
In chains, the destinies of these five
That kind of a religion, swaying that
kind of temporal power. Is real It Is the
real thing. ,
But if the News prefers to consider
its article as being commercial In tone
rather than political, we are content.
The News says that "Mormonlsm
deals with things as they are." At least
tho leaders deal with things as they
are, and they deal In things as they are.
The leaders deal with banks and sugar
trusts. They deal In merchandise of
every description; from the thresh
ing machine to the bathing suit; from
the savings bank book to the sporting
page of a newspaper; from the forbidden
tea, coffee and tobacco of the grocery
counter to the even more forbidden
splrltus frumentl of the drug store.
The church leaders deal In things, ftnd
their deals are Immensely profitable
to the church leaders.
In his now somewhat .famous testi
mony before the Smoot Investigating
committee. President Joseph F. Smith
said that he held hi- position as a di
rector and president of various Institu
tions, not all of which he could remem
ber, because of his personal holdings
of stocks and because of the church
holdings of stock In these concerns. Not
long since, he was a poor man. Today
he 1b an autocrat In financlul circles.
As the News remarks, there is nothing
sentimental or rhapsodical about thls
proposition. It Is real.
How much superior It Is for the
leader than the mere sentimentality of
a faith, proclaimed without temporal In
gredients, to the seeker after the Christ
crucified! What a vain and empty and
useless work all the other churches must
bo engaged inl
But how about the follower, the man
who Is dealt with and In,-- and whoso
things are alsovdcalt with and In? Is
this temporal poweras advantageous to
him? Ifhe be a merchant, he gives
10 per cent of his profits every year Into
the hands of the church leaders, who
by virtue of their dealinc- i
enabled to establish a mercantile house
to compete with him. It might be dilll
cult to convince him that all this more
worldly contribution to a mere worldly
competitor, however sanctified that
competitor may call himself. Is a neces
sary step to spiritual salvation. It might
also be difficult for tho farmer to trace
the connection between the profits
which banks pay to the church leaders
perionally"and his admission to celestial
In the opening we confessed that the
nrtlcl in thr News was complicated.
Tho more we read It and the more we
attempt to trace out Its logical ramifi
cations, the more convinced we are that
none but the News can easily explain its
"VVIll the News, In a burst of generous
feeling, be kind enough to tell how the
rale of political power by tho church
leaders advances tho eternal glory of
the followers? will It be kind enough
to tell how the complete absorption of
business opportunities by the lenders
will add to the mercy of God when the
follower stands before Him for Judgment?
IT CANNOT Bt SHIFTED.
Tho Trlbuno notes It as a very pe
culiar thing that Reed Smoot's adher
ents and apologists blame anybody or
everybody, except Tioed Smoot himself,
for Reed Smoot's unpleasant predica
ment at Washington.
Let us see. Reed Smoot is a gentle
man of unquestioned business attain
ments, holding a high position in the
community; his life Is full of commer
cial oarcs; ho Is selected to Join a fa
vored coterie of men who allege them
selves' to be, and aro by their followers
accepted as, the mouthpieces of God.
To his vast business responsibilities are
thus added direct spiritual supervision
over tho belief of something less than
half a million soulsr
Upon this stupendous edifice of per
sonal prominence, with labor corre
sponding, he offers to build a candidacy
for the United States Senate. Tlmo
and time again he Is admonished that
he already has enough duty for one
man to perform In this world. Tlmo
"and tlmo again he Is admonished that
his candidacy under the peculiar condi
tions existing hero would seem like a
challenge to the United States Govern
ment; time and time again he Id admon
ished that nothing but tribulation will
ensue If he persists. Against all the
. warnings, against all the pleadings,
against what must have been his own
certuln knowledge, if he had . sense
enough to serve as an efficient Senator,
he does persist; and, by means which
aro In themselves a calamity to the
State, he attains his ambition. The
Legislature elects him and ho takes his
oath of office at Washington.
Did he dream for one moment that the
people of the United States would not
resent this Intrusion and the means by
which It was procured? It Is not to be
supposed but that he knew of the woe
which portended; It Is Justly to be ns
' sumed that he was defiant of the con
sequences. Reed Smoot, more than any other one
man, is responsible for the investiga
tion and all the nauseating and ca
lamitous things which attended upon it.
He will never escape the responsibility
In this world.
His friends, his hirel creatures, who
profess friendship for him, his associate
dignitaries, his church organ and his
venal press, may apologize and falsify
to the end of time. They may drag In
the names of other men from Maine to
Florida and from Washington State to
Texas. But they will never make the
people of Utah believe that the respon
sibility for the present woes rests upon
any other shoulders than those of Reed
Smoot and the men who have Joined and
connived with him In reckless destruc
tion of the peace and prestige of the
He committed the offense; his subse
quent follies have magnified Its imme
Reed Smoot is accountable to the
State and Nation, and not the men who
warned against his wretched pride, and
who thought, by preventing him from
going to the United States Senate, to
avert the evil result of that pride.
The exports of, cotton comprise the
strength of the exports of the country
at this time. During the month of Sep
tember Just past, the exports of cotton
were valued at $13,742,325, compared
with like exports In September of last
year of 121.179.300; and $20,030,815 In Sep
tember, 1002; and $1G,49S,DG6 in Septem
ber, 1001. It Is likely that October will
show even heavier cotton exports, for
the world Is bare of cotton, and needs
all that the United States can send.
