Those desiring street enr legislation can get It by simply Inducing President Smith to favor It. tepre3entatlve Tolton may hear some of the patients at Provo today talking good Democratic doctrine. Senator Walton likes Democrats so I well that ho does not want to subject them to the temptations of office. It appears that the State Land Board Is perfectly willing to do the right thing If some one" will only Insist on It. Senator Mitchell has lost faith In the veracity o his law partner, since the latter has refused to falsify any morei Provo should take an interest in its visitors today, If for no other reason than that they are Brother Smoot's men. Perhaps the House members feel that they should visit the asylum because the patients do not have much to amuse them. "Will House members, while among the patients at the asylum today, wear badges so that they may be readily dis tinguished? Mr. Joseph proposes to get revenge , for the treatment given him by Port land people, by heaping coals of fire on their heads. Dealers In valentines are among those whose good taste Is offended by the comic ones, as there Is more profit In the pretty ones. I Members will view with interest the woollen mills at Provo, where Senator Smoot and Gov. Cctler learned how to deliver. the goods. Being In the minority, the three Democratic Senators admit that there should be some Republicans on the State Land Board. Is it possible that the boodlumrj have decided that there Is no fun In commit ting depredations If the police refuse to be troubled by thera? It is expected that the House will inspect the Insane asylum thoroughly enough to ascertain whether the food served there is all right. In remaining at work today, instead of going to- the asylum, the Senate wishes to show that one branch of the Legislature is entirely sane. While some physicians testify that smelter smoke is not Injurious to health, they are not quite ready to say that it is beneficial to sjck people. Mr. "Wilson finds that tho oratory of the present House Is much inferior to that heard in the last one, as he has not talked so much at this session. "Wholesale dealers In butter have be come convinced that it is right to put . sixteen ounces of butter in a pound, if they are paid extra for doing so. Our Legislature will probably not go to Southern California, and .so that section can keep on congratulating itself over the completion of the San Pedro. Senator Smoot admits that Utah should have another land-office, but at the same time he realises that it is more- important that he should have his own way. Is the United States Senate now so sure that it Is right in its conillct with the President over the arbitration treaties, when Mr. Eryan has endorsed lis position? Undoubtedly, the polyganilsts of New Mexico will heartily endorse the state ment of the Attorney-General of that Territory that thero Is no polygamy there. LEW WALLACE. Only the man who comprehends the aspirations of the human soul In its sublimest moments could write as Gen eral Lew "Wallace has written to com fort and sustain his follow men. The great soldier, the great author and tho grea't diplomat, who now lies dead In his old homo in Indiana, had seen his fellow men in all tho fields of their ac tivity; he had studied them in their churches: ho had pondered upon them in his study. This man achieved In his way the summit of human greatness; for he hud learned what was the most exalted requirement of humanity, and he had learned how to satisfy It. In some of the wondrous literature which came from him there are lesosno so bcnlc nant, so uplifting, that no one can read without being made better. As a captain of men in trrcat war times he led fearlessly; ns a represen tative of . his Government he carried himself In the simple dress of an Amer ican with a dignity which equalled and even outshone that of the biasing magnificence of courts; as a mere human creature, breathing out his last, he uttered a sen timent which will thrill the Chris tian heart. But even above these la the glory of the author, who has an swered the cry of the human heart for higher things one who has made his fellow men think higher things and do , higher things, one 'who hag made the faint ideal of Christ the God Into the real Brother and Helper on the upward path.' WORSE THAN USELESS. The unhappy attitude In which Sena-' tor Smoot is placed Is accentuated from time to time by his own action or lack of action; and people arc beginning to wonder if he deliberately Injures the State In matters of relatively small im portance, in addition to having Involved Utah in a conflict with the general sen timent' of the people of the United States. - - The Tribuno does not desire to be hyperorltical'toward tho junior Senator. He has many difficulties to contend with; ho is surrounded in large degree by men who have no sympathy with his strange commingling of loyalties; and therefore the public must judge him In his official conduct with due gentleness. BUt even with this mitigation, there are some things In his procedure, out side of his own case, which are so re markable as that they are only ac countable upon the ground of an utter lack of capacity' for the duties of Sen ator, or an utter disregard of anything but his own case, or an utter demoral ization of mind, due to the warfare up on him, so that he is unable to judge correctly of other things. It is not so very long since the Indian war veterans of Utah lost their pen sion bill In the Senate, purely because of the showing1 In the Smoot lnvestlga ' tlon. Senator Smoot was advised of tho danger by prominent Senators. It cer tainly was In his power to go to every one of importance concerned to ad dress the committee, and even to . ad dress the Senate; and in eloquent and manly words relieve the old Indian fighters of responsibility for the show ing made in his case; to ask that any punishment intended for him should be inflicted on him alone; and to demand recognition of the services of these de voted men while yet they arc alive to enjoy that recognition. He failed to meet the requirement of the occasion. He made no answer and practically no effort; and the Indian war' veterans of Utah are without their legal-'penslon rights. In another matter he has 'acted as no other Senator on the floor would' have acted. A question arose concerning his colleaguo and his colleague's vote. Sen ator Smoot sat within hearing distance and knew that his colleague voted aye. While the senior Senator from this State was seeking to obtain his right to have the mlsapprehcn3lon corrected and his vote recorded as he gave It; Apostle Smoot sat In sullen silence without protesting In behalf of his col league's right. In the-relation of per sonal courtesy concerning vote, every Senator holds himself to be tho friend of his colleague. Even if they are barely on speaking terms outside of tho Senate chamber; even If there is deadly political feud between them; even if one of them has made (as Senator Smoot has made) a determined, unrelenting effort to drive hSs colleague from his seat; In this matter of cour tesy between gentlemen any other Sen ator than Reed Smoot would have pro tected his colleague from any misunder standing of that colleague's vote in tho Senate. In the Arizona .Strip matter, although It has been one of the great desires of Utah to possess that tract, he does not appear to have taken enough Interest in the matter to discover whether Sen ator Bacon of Georgia had beaten the Kearns amendment or not; and it was only due to the superlative care exer cised by our senior Senator that this Important provision, ceding territory to Utah, was made a part of the bill as it left the Senate. Utah's rights were Involved and the Mormon people, directly and Indirectly, were attacked In the recent debate, and Senator Smoot sat through It all as dumb as a tomb. An additional land office Is wanted for Utah, and once more Senator Smoot ap pears upon the scene to help? Appar ently not; but mainly to so Interpose that Utah is In danger of losing that ad ditional land office. The most outspoken opponents of Apdstle Smool's candidacy expected better than this from him. They thought that his election would arouse a whirl wind of storm In the United States; but they did not think thut nt any point he would fall In either loyalty or courage for the State nnd for his people. As It Is: either Apostle Smoot does not appear at all; or he appears to Utah's injury. Once more The Tribune asks, what possible good has come to Utah through the election of Apostle Smoot? Only trouble piled on trouble. He himself Is of no active service to the State; and his presence there is a, provocation to war in general and war In particular against Utah and her claims. THE RUSSIAN RECRIMINATIONS. It is pitiful to read the bitter recrim inations of the Russian ofilccrs. It Id a sad commentary upon the workings of a unified autocracy to see the army and the navy indulge In such con temptuous estimates of each other. It is amazing to sec with what sudden ness the, heroic figure of General Stocs sel as a tenacious fighter, the admir able, grim defender of Port Arthur, has collapsed, if we would hear to the criti cisms hurled at him. It Is all a con temptible commentary on a situation that was bad enough from the Russian standpoint, without this evidence of wcaknosa These returning Russian officers Irresistibly remind one of a lot of mean-spirited schoolboys sensible of the Impending rod of the master, and 'each anxious to exculpate' himself at the expense of his fellows. No more complete exposure of the miserable conditions In Russia is possi ble than is carried In this wretched scramble of the Russian officers cap tured at Port Arthur, and now on their way homo under parole, to place the blame for the surrender of that posi tion upon somo one else. Even Stoes sel, the hero of the defense, heaps op probrium on the navy, and insists that it should bo held responsible for the failure of his efforts. It would seem that ho might well have shown sufficient reticence and dignity to with hold his word until he was confronted with the court martial which it has been announced Is ready to consider his acts. But no; all are alike garrulous and Inconsequential, every one appar ently eager to get in his word of con demnation of the- other. It Is a pitiful exhibition. But after all, there Is some Justification for it. The Czar, before whom all these timo rous, envious and slnvlsh souls must appear, Is such a weak, vacillating character that no man knows how he would view any case presented; he would not necessarily, or even proba bly, consider it on Its merits, or from any manly point of view, but from some petty, puerile sidelight, which would disconcert any frank' manliness. The personal weakness of tho ruler who Is so powerful Is the distressing feature of the situation, not onlyas ap plied to these officers, but as applied to the whole range of Russian activi ties, energies, and the discordances which he himself unwittingly aug ments. Nowhere else on the face of tho earth not even In China, for there the Emperor himself is under restraint and guidance Is any such wide-reaching power held by such nerveless hands as in the case of the Russian Czar. It is this which takes the .soul and virility out of men, and makes them puling, driveling Imbeciles. It Is this which crcatest division and disaster. It Is this that makes one set of servants turn against another set, and In their strife aid the common foe. It is this that steeps the Russian public service with corruption, for nothing Is more natural than that ofilcero of uncertain tenure, named by favoritism and in the midst of a self-seeking that alone stands for the ideal of public duty, should lay hands on tho passing rouble, and take care of themselves first, last, and all the time, caring little or noth ing for the public Interest, but anxious only in their own Interest to escape re sponsibility for bad military or naval service or for maladministration In civil life. THE NEWS WANDtRS. The Deseret News finds out for Itself, or think-s It does, that an "anti-Mormon organ Is endeavoring to prove by Web ster's dictionary that the church is ruled by a hlcrarch." Inasmuch as The Tribune has dis cussed this question recently, with quo tations from Webster, It Is not an un fair assumption that the News means The Tribune, when it speaks of an "anti-Mormon organ." How far away from the fact the News can getl Not one of the three definitions of "hierarchy" given by Webster was the reliance of The Trib une in its claim that the Mormon church Is ruled by such a body. In the article In which discussion was had upon this subject. The Trlbuno quoted the Deseret News and thanked the News for giving to us definition No. i, which makes "hierarchy" a synonym for "despotism" and "hlcrarch" a "des pot," The linguistic debate on this mat ter is of no importance, however, com pared with the charge made in these columns that the ruler of the church call him hlcrarch or prophet, call him despot or revelator had actually played the part of tyrant In a well authenti cated case which was cited by The Tribune for the News to answer. Again The Tribune renews the charge that because they were engaged in a business which competed with his In tercuts, the present ruler threatened to crush two honest, high-minded citizens of Utah, and members and former tltho paycrs of the church. The News cannot evade this charge by wandering off Into remote fields ot ecclesiastical history, nor by quotations from "the last edition of the Doctrine nnd Covenants," The presont ruler of the church lo a "hierarch," and for the definition of that word we accept the synonym given by the Deseret News itself, namely: despot. WHY BLAME JUDGE TAYLE R7 It Is easy for the Deseret News arid Its sympathizers to find fault with the closing address of Judge Taylor in the Smoot case at Washington, because of his alleged contemptuous reference to revelation from on hlch. We are sure that Judge Taylor feels no disrespect toward the Almighty, nor is the Judge lacking in recognition of the right of the All Father to direct Ilia children. But at the present time It IS not desirable to enter Into any lengthy discussion of his argument In these columns. Tho .Tribune merely passes to one point which Is made atartllngly clear by tho references made In tho Deseret News to Judge Tayler In connection with this subject; and we point to this sharp distinction; Judge Taylor was not a self-professed living oracle of God, with exclusive or special power from on High to speak the Almighty's will to mankind. But Apostle Reed Smoot, President Joseph F. Smith, and others who appeared as witnesses, had ample opportunity from tle stand, as Reed Smopt has had ample opportunity on tho floor of the Senate, to declare their mission these claim to have divine authority vested In them, upon which they do not permit anyone In Utah to Impinge without their resentment. Why did not some of these prophets, seers and revelators bear' their testi mony to the great truths, and let the Nation understand all about, tho man ner In which revelation was conferred? Why did not tho prophets prophesy? Why did not the seers sec tho things that were, oncoming? They were as dumb on this question as Longfellow'a driven cattle. They bore no testimony of their alleged mission. . They uttered none of tho prophecies with which they claim God has endowed them ns oracles. So far'as their testimony Is concerned, they leave the question in such a way as that after reading their evidence the world has expressed a gen eral contempt for the whole "unintelli gent, uninspired mess of rubbish." Why this belated sensltlveneyrs con cerning reverence for tho All Father; and why should Judge Taylor bo made the subject of criticism by the organ of men -who pretending to hold God s power left, so far as they were con cerned, His name and Ills revelation ,an irreverent and hideous satire before all the world, when they had the oppor tunity, if they were His oracles, to bear a testimonyjvvhlch -would have lived as hath lived th'q word of Isaiah. Poor prophets, who did not prophesy; reluctant revelators, who did not re veal! Thplr organ now takes refuge In criticising Judge Tayler, who never made any- pretensions to these wonder ful gifts'. , ; - LET LIGHT IN ON TRUSTS. If there were any expectation on the part of the great trusts of the country that they were to receive any special consideration at the hands of President Roosevelt, rather than at the hands of Hon. Alton Brooks Parker (In case the latter should have been elected), It must by this time have vanished Into thin air. The President goes after this trust matter In his usual plain and blunt way. He has ordered Investigation, through the proper department, of tho oil question; and it is probable that the wide range of the Inquiry will com pass a fair and thorough showing of the Standard Oil matter. The public arc not prepared to believe that all business organizations, -which are sometimes called trusts, are bad In their practice and effect; nor are they prepared to accept the extreme opposite doctrine that all business combinations are good. The President seems to ap prehend that somo organizations, whether called trusts or not, are good and that some are bad; and that the question cannot receive Just treatment until it can have Intelligent treatment and tho latter can only come from the most comprehensive Investigation. The public knows .something of the possibilities of tho bad trusts, because these have been exploited by political speakers and interested writers; and in general thero exists a perfectly natural antagonism to trusts. Where they water their stock to fabulous amounts; where they sell this watered stock to the public; where they cut down the fnlr returns which producers should re ceive, at the same time raising their prices to consumers; where they at tempt, through the help of favorable legislation and otherwise, to make the public pay extravagant dividends on stock multiplied again and again In Perfect Confidence. Where there used to be a feeling of uneasiness and worry in the household when a child showed symptoms of croup, there Is now perfect confidence. This Is owing to the uniform success of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy In the treatment of that disease. Mrs. M. I. Basford of Poolesvllle. Md., In speaking of her experience in tho use of that remedy, says: "I have a world jf con fidence In Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, for I have used It with perfect success. My child Garland is subject to severe attacks of croup, and it always gives him prompt rellof." For sale by all leading druggists. rcPnTfrirtt ill iii i iii i n ii 1 1 iii wizmp Sjpedd Mees lTi(g(t .
