Almost any Democratic aspirant can now listen to a fusion proposition wlth out becoming- Indignant. Candidate Lynch feels that he has a chance unless Apostle Smoot has fallen entirely out of the sustaining habit. Those opposed to the coming of more. Gentiles to Salt Lake will of course be careful to vote against the American party. Anyway, Mayor Morris Is not laylngi any sidewalks at present, needing, as he docs, all his time for the laying of All that Mayor Morris now lias to do to get the Big Cottonwood water bought by the city Is to pay Mr. Knud for it. Chief Lynch would have the force understand that It Is Its duty to heartl ly co-operate with the head of the de partment. Mr. Fer.pstroni might aspire to a nlgher office than that of Land and Water Commissioner, with the same chance of getting it. Associates of Apostle Smoot in the hierarchy do not think he committed any offense when he failed to sustain them, as they believe he was Insincere. While tho Republicans and Demo crats arc competing for church aid, the American party will go ahead with the work of securing the Inlluence of the voters. By maintaining uncertainty as to whether It will support the Republican , or the Democratic party, the hierarchy H can keep both from condemning church H interference. The campaign Is' well advanced, but B Mayor Morris has not yet done any H boasting about the management of the Police department during his admlnls H tratlon. Mr. Hartensteln finds It difficult to H convince Fourth precinct voters that he was hostile to the Light and Rail way company when he voted to burden It with that franchise. HOT AIR." DOESN'T COUNT. The disparity between promise nnd performance Is often very wide. It Is often, also, that the mere pretender, the self-seeker, the one who knows that he Is not able to do what he promises to do, Is the moat strenuous In insisting that his promises must be accepted as the same as though the tiling promised were alreudy done. To this latter extravagance the morn ing organ of the Morris ecclesiastical push hastened to commit Itself In the present municipal campaign. It held, and publicly claimed, that because Morris had promised additional water to the city, It must be agreed that Ave already have It. And yet It was under the Morris ad ministration that the people were I obliged a month or so ago to hold an In dignation meeting to compel the Mayor to use the water already available, at a cost so trilling as to be unworthy of mention, In order to relieve the over demand upon the pipes, and to leave In them a supply for domestic use. No such uprising of citizens was ever had in this city before, on a question of administrative efficiency. It was n con demnation of Mayor Morris from which he can never escape. And yet, he Is certainly in for a fur ther and severer condemnation in his pretense of getting water for the city from Big Cottonwood; first, because he has taken no means to meet Mr. Gif ford Pinchot's statement as an expert who has full knowledge of what he is saying, that the Big Cottonwood water is Impure, and that putting It Into the water pipes would be a menace to the health of the city; second, that he has not taken the legitimate steps neces sary to get the water. The Knudscn case Is typical of other cases. Mr. Knudsen has two water rights that the city must- have. One of these the public knows about, and has known about all along, the mill right; but no stops have been taken to get It, and It will be all the harder and the more costly to get the longer Its acquirement is put off. The other Is a larger right, for light and power pur poses on which Mr. Knudscn Is putting in a plant, and which the public has been kept In Ignorance of, although It Is claimed to date back 'five years. Oilier rights, equally necessary, are said to exist below tho point of the city's Intake. And nothing has been done to secure them. In fact, as we are told, they can't be secured at all. And yet, in spite of this dreadful blundering and bungling, this absolute failure to do anything, the public is asked to admire the great things Mayor Morris has done In adding to the water supply of tho city! To yield to that demand would be tho very stupidity of self-deception. To fail to hold the Mayor responsible for his bad faith In the expenditure of money outside of the agreement with the taxpayers, and for his costly blun ders and Inefficient preparation In the water supply would be condoning inls admlnlstratlon and encouraging un faithfulness to public trusts. THE PEEP-HOLE CONSPIRACY. The Logan Journal, so notorious for getting things mixed, for making wrongful and slanderous statements, and for saying things that It and all Its brood are sorry It gave away, has exposad Itself again. It says The Trib une ''once advocated the establishment of brothels". In Salt Lake City, and "worked to the end of securing them." It Is evident that the Journal remem bers who It was that did this, and It now counts on the forgetfulness of the pub lic, to charge that atrocity upon The Tribune, well knowing that It was the police of this city, under ecclesiastical control and suggestion in the old days, that did this foul thing. All the old residents will remember the "peep-hole" conspiracy and plot. It was one of the meanest, dirtiest plots ever carried on by man. The police force rented and fitted up certain houses for Immoral and lecherous pur poses, punctured the walls of the rooms with small holes so that what went on Inside could be seen by the police and their spl03 and agents. Then they Im ported Immoral women to beguile "the enemy," Federal officials preferred, with a view to getting their grip upon those officials to use them as they saw fit, or else bring prosecutions against them In the courts. The plot was well considered, and the faithful Saints who conceived and were carrying It out were full of zeal and hope. But It did not pan out. No one of the least prominence was caught; the lechery among "the enemy" that had been so loudly proclaimed by the Mormon orators and writers was not found, and the whole dirty scheme collapsed, after the misappropriation of considerable public money to prepare the trap and put it In working order. So scandalous, so revolting to every eenae of decency and lawful action, was this plot, so small Its game, that Mr. Varian, as District Attorney, Indignantly dismissed the case that was brought against one poor devil whom the police claimed to have caught. The scathing condemnation with which Mr. Varian denounced the villainy of public officials being en gaged In this sort of lures to crime has always been remembered with satisfaction by every right-minded per son who heard his burning words. At the same time, this matter Illus trates fairly the unscrupulous methods of the church leaders; they atop at no Indecency, halt at no outrage, to car ry out their purposes. And then, when the whole matter Is supposed to have passed out of the public memory, they have their court fool spring it as some thing that The Tribune has advocated or worked to have done. The crimes they themselves commit, they impute to others; and then de nounce the others for those things that they held to be virtues when they com mitted them. It Is a queer world any where you strike It; but at times it is doubly queer In Utah. A FIGHT FOR SALT LAKE. Besides , a general false, foolish and contemptible denial of conditions which every one knows exists here, the church organ on Thursday night car ried this imitation gem: "There may be citizens here who really think that It would be a good thing for the 'Gen tiles' to unite for the purpose of ex cluding 'Mormons' from participating In the affairs of the city and State." i There may be citizens here, also, who think that It would be a good thing for the Mormons to unite for the purpose of excluding the Gentiles from partici pating in the affairs of the city and State. We venture to say, also, that on lines thus laid down, the Mormons who would like to exclude the Gentiles from participating In the affairs of the city and State are ten to one as compared with the Gentiles who would desire to exclude the Mormons. There are also citizens here, we hear, who ' believe in the fourth dimen sion; who think that Bacon wrote Shakespeare's plays; who think that they know who "Junius" was. and "the man In the iron mask." People will be found everywhere who have strange beliefs, as Instance the Dowle tes, the Amlsh, the "Holy Jumpers." But It Is not easy to sec what specu lative questions like these have to do with the practical situation here at this time. The question is perfectly straightfor ward and single. It Is simply that this city shnll throw off the hierarchic yoke and step forth free, disenthralled, and take the place which rightfully belongs to It as a progressive, enterprising, growing metropolis, after the manner that other cities range themselves in the comity of American tradition and advancement. There Is no war upon any sect, on religious or church lines. It Is purely a fight for American sentiments, Ideas, practices. It is a fight to redeem the city from the control of reactionary forces that have left it. which had the start of all the cities of the mountains and the coust, a pitiful laggard, far In the rear of the procession. It Is a fight to give Salt Lake a chance to catch up. It Is a fight for progress, for freedom, for business. It Is a campaign to loosen the bands which have so long held the city down, and enable It to rise. And that Is the j whole matter In a nutshell. I IT IS SURELY ENOUGH. Do our friends still ask for an excuse for the existence of the American party, or Is the Conference just closed sufficient? From start to finish of that remarkable meeting, was there any thing better calculated to put a damper upon the good Intentions of the "out sider" within the Gates of Zlon? The temper of the meeting itself, not to mention the feeling expressed at the numerous auxiliaries, was surely enough to Impress even the most en thusiastic supporter of the regular parties that every charge made against the Mormon Church as an organization In politics and In business, Is fully Jus tified. Is there any good reason for doubting the sincerity of the Sunday-school teachers when they voiced the regret, no doubt pretty general, that the reli gious work In the public schools had had to be abandoned, at least In the chief places? Does any one doubt that Mrs. Smith's Injunction to the Mormon mothers, not to allow their daughters to work for the "outsider," will be very generally taken as It was intended? In fact, Is not this boycott In effect on right now? Talmage's hysterical vitu peration was no doubt from the heart; It Is quite true that among the "out siders" anything that ho might say would carry very little weight, but he was talking to his own, and to them Mr. Talmage is one of the brainiest men In the country. The failure of Reed Smoot to vote' for the sustaining of the quorum of apos tles was certainly as cowardly an eva sion of his implied promise to the com mittee at Washington, as was his "ur gent business" In San Francisco last spring. The leaders amply Illustrated that they are as they claim they are, a "pe culiar people." an alien institution, and to all Intents and purposes Inimical to every one not of their faith In this country. It did not need even the part ing shot or "prayer" of Joseph F. SmUlt to convince us of that. A prayer for mercy unon his enemies and adver saries! Or, say, a sweeping denuncia tion of all tellers of unpleasant truths. Well; we may need the prayer for mer cy; but did he need to tell his people to keep their hands off? We trow not: the Mormon people since 1845 have learned a thing or two. Senator Mc Kay, at the last session of the Legisla ture, felt moved to regret (they are al ways feeling to regret something) that Fort Douglas was where It was. None of the members had sense of humor enough to ask him If that .was the first time he had felt that way. It came up in some of the discussion as to the University-Agricultural squabble. Well, we can't say that we feel as Senator McKay did; we rather like the J Fort where It is; It is a fine, showy lit tle place, a fortress of loyalty, and we have too few of them; so few that we feel proud of It; it makes a nice ride on Sunday to go up there, and you can hear the band piny sometimes; outside of that and Its social features, we would Just as soon have It somewhere else, but for just such ebullitions as are herein referred to. Not even Mr. Smith's injunction to his followers to keep their hands off and let tho Lord punish his enemies, could make us feel any differently. In fact, one Is almost Inclined lo think that even Mr. Smith knows a thing or two; that through that beclouded, fa natical, egotistic brain a ray of light can sometimes penetrate. He may ful minate nnd sometimes almost swear; Jic may Instruct his women to boycott the Gentile houses, lest some fair maid en of Zlon should Imbibe some of the vicious doctrines of the founders of this Republic; he may regret that his ample mitt will not much longer endanger our public school system, and he may call upon (he faithful to Indulge In quiet lit tle discriminations in trude, social and political matters, but even Joseph F. gets a hunch and is wise, occasionally. THE PORTLAND EXPOSITION. The Lewis and Clark Centennial find American Pacific Exposition and Ori ental Fair (to give it Its full title) Is about over. A letter from Mr. Frank L. Merrick, manager general of the Press bureau, speaks of the approach ing end of It as "a triumphant close." And the facts fully justify him in so saying; for, as he notes, "visitors from every portion of the country have gone to Portland during the past four and a half months to see the two great ex positions the Lewis and Clark Centen nial, and the wonderful Western coun try. The eyes of the world have been turned towards Portland, Oregon, and the Pacific Northwest, which fact proves without a doubt that the Lewis and Clark Exposition has successfully accomplished Its primary object, that of exploitation of the marvelous coun try west of the Rocky Mountains." We learn from him also that aside from the fact that the Lewis and Clark Exposition has been successful In ac complishing Its purpose St has also been a financial success. The admis sions and money collected from other sources of revenue will enable the di rectorate to pay a fair percentage of the stock subscription. The attendance is rapidly climbing toward the two mil lion five hundred thousand mark, which Is likely to be reached by October 15th. The admissions have gone ahead of those at the Trans-MIsslssippI Exposi tion at Omaha, which heretofore was generally conceded to have been a most successful fair. This result Is more re markable when it is considered that within a radius of 500 miles of Omaha there live 13,000,000, while the popula tion within a similar radius of Port land is only 1,800,000. Which proves the larger attendance from distant points than that at tho Omaha fair. Utah has fared very well In awards at the Portland fair. And while It Is true that since the report of tlie Legis lative Investigation by the Utah House of Representatives, of the St. Louis awards, we may not have as high an opinion of awards as we might have had before, It Is gratifying to see that the Stale has hold its own. The exhibits from here were certainly worthy of the honors paid them. The special feature of the Fair, so far as Utah is concerned, that has caused Indignant comment from every Utahn not of the Mormon church, (and of a good many of the Mormons, too,) was the Mormon church booth down below the Utah building, which was used as a sectarian "push." No other denomina tion thus thrust itself Into public no tice in connection with this Fair, and every one but bigots and fanatics of the sect, condemned the Impudent in trusion. It is probable that the appro priation by the Legislature could not have been obtained, however, but for the programme In view to put this Mor mon sectarian booth In the neighbor hood of the Utah exhibit. No doubt, the two went together In the hierarchic mind. And that booth was a blot on the exposition. THE NON-MILITARY CHINESE. The news that the Chinese are to have military maneuvers, for the first time in the modern history of the em pire, Is read with Interest, and may be the beginning of great things. At the same time, It Is funny to see that the general In charge of these man euvers calls upon the different com mands to make such a showing that they won't be laughed at by foreign military experts who expect to be pres ent. It reminds one of the old story when British officers first began to drill and train a detachment of Chi nese soldiers. The officers worked over their task until their simple drill was fairly well done, and then began to turn the commands out at night, on alarm as though the enemy were at hand. The Chinamen responded a time or two, and then, seeing that, as they thought, they were being fooled, they didn't show up at the parade ground, when the next night alarm was sound ed, but made faces in the barrack win dows, "made snouts," with thumb to nose and outspread finger, and shouted, "No catchee." And yet, in this awaking of China to modern military systems and train ing there is a vast potential menace to her neighbors. Suppose that there arc three hundred millions of people In China, not the four hundred, millions or more commonly reckoned to be there. Think what armies that number of people might turn out! Japan, with less than fifty millions, sent out to Manchuria probably oer a million men. and had plenty of "troops left at home. China could no doubt do as well proportionately, and that would mean an army of six millions available for foreign service. But this must be a thing of the distant future, if ever. And even then, Europe or the United States would have no reason for alarm, for no sufficient number of Chinese troops to be much of a menace could by nny practical method, reach either Europe or America.
