Struggle Between Tom L. John
son and Congressman Burton
Is Growing Exciting.
CLEVELAND, Oct. 27. With only one
week coming' for active work In tho cam
paign, tho Cleveland mayoralty contest
Is overwhelming: everything' else In point
of Interest in connection with the elec
tion in November.
The record-breaking registration has
been a matter of surprise to polltlcnl lead
ers generally, and election experts are
now kept busy trying to analyze Its
meaning and probable effect on the In
terests, respectively, of Muyor Tom L.
Johnson, who Is seeking a fourth term,
and of Congressman Theodore E. Burton,
Republican nominee.
The registration has reached a total of
H3.000, which Is nearly In excess of tho
normal vote In city elections. The pre
dictions being made by political leaders
as to tho result of tho election vary
according to the political feelings of those
making them. Republican politicians are
sanguine that the big registration augurs
that Republicans hitherto out of lino with
their party locally, who did not vote at
all, are back In line and ready to vote.
Thej' point to tho fact that the biggest
Increase In registration has hoon In the
heavy Republican wards. Mayor John
son and his assistants, however, are
equally sanguine that the increased In
terest in municipal affairs as shown by
the big registration Is clue to his posi
tion on the question of lower street car

NASHVILLE, Tcnn., Oct. 27. At a
meeting of Forbes Bivouac, United Con
federate Veterans, at Clarksvillc, a
resolution was adopted that it was the
sense of the bivouac that for the pub
lic school, the school commissions
should never select a teacher, either
white or colored, who has been edu
cated in the North.
DENVER, Oct. 27. Financial men of
this city express tho utmost confidence
that all clanger of serious results from
the money stringency in Now York Is
now passed and that conditions will right
themselves rapidly. Charles B. Kounze,
president of the Colorado National bank
and also president of the Denver Clear
ing House association, said tonight that
the recent trouble in financial circles of
New York had had no appreciable effect
on business affairs of rienver and Colo
rado and that none was feared at any
time. He expressed considerable satis
faction when referring to the manner In
which moneyed men of Now York grasped
the situation there and In this particular
he spoke the sentiments of bankers and
business men of Denver generally. All
seem confident now that the trouble ns
far as the likelihood of a panic Is con
cerned Is entirely over.
Bank Consolidation.
HOUSTON. Tex., Oct. 27. Tho
Planters and Merchants National bank,
capitalized at $500,000, and which, ac
cording to the last statement, issued in
August, reported deposits of $11,000,000,
has been absorbed by the Union Bank
and Trust company. Tho consolidated
bank will continue as a State institution.
The Tribuno yesterday called attention to the intolerance of the men who now composo the Smith dynasty and
who are doing all they are capable of doing to make necessary the maintaining of the American party in the
political field in Utah.
It was shown that non-Mormons are under the ban whero the church loaders can rule, and that the Gentiles
are more than generous with tho members of the dominant church. It was a powerful lesson. A remarkablo show
ing. It was an indictment against the church politicians who aro crying, "Religious intolerance" against Ameri
cans that ought to convict them of tho most shameful prevarication. It is a thing that should be rebuked by every
Gentile and every fair-minded Mormon in the city.
And, lest we forget the known opposition of President Joseph T. Smith to tho coming into this state of non
Monuons, let tho old-timer remember and the nowcomer know that at St. George, Utah, during the conference held
in the temple there in September three years ago, he delivered an address which was one of tho most astounding
utterances that bigoted leader ever voiced. He was ciiiotcd In the Dixie Advocate, published at St. George, September
22, 1904, as having said:
The Advocate is published in a community whore thore was not a handful of non-Mormons. It was and is a
strictly orthodox Mormon newspaper.
President Smith denied, when confronted with tho statement in one of his own church newspapers, that ho
had used the -word "Gentiles." He claimed ho had said "pharisces." Of course, tho explanation did not explain.
There is no difference between "Gentile" and "Pharisee" in tho bigoted churchman's vocabulary,
Now, suppose Joseph P. Smith wcro loft frco to run this city as ho desires? Would it boom7 Would it grow
in population? Would it over bocomo a great metropolis? Would his own people over bo ablo to turn their property
into cash at groat profits?
The American party was organized to teach by example the fact that tho application of the same American
pluck and energy in Salt Lako that is employed in other parts of the United States will bo a great thing for Mormon
as well as for Gentile. That tho Gentiles aro not onomios of Salt Lako and Utah, but that they want to persuado
the churchmen to join thorn in building up and developing this country, that all may sharo in tho boneQts of tho
This work of education is progressing. Thousands of Mormons havo alroady gained through Amorican rule.
They havo had plenty of work and havo soon their holdings in real ostate grow into flguroo that havo made them
comfortahlo for life.
Such things as these win Mormon support, True, it Is most all quiet nupporb, but it Is effective. And with the
aid of tho liboral Mormon3 this city and Stato will booh become, as aro other cities and Statos, truly American, and

Commander Who Will Take Our
Fleet on Cruise to Be
WASHINGTON, Oct. 27. Tho great
battloship fleet which is to make its way
from the Atlantic to the Pacific will
probably be commanded by a Vice Ad
miral, and that odicer is now Rear-Admiral
Roblcy D. Evans. Of course, this'
is conditioned upon Congress giving its
sanction to tho proposal that will bo
made by tho President to establish this
new rank in the nnvj'. Conditions now
are believed to be moro favorable than
ever before for this project. Rear-Admiral
Evans is going to sail in com
mand of the most powerful fieot that
ever gathered uudor tho American Hag.
Not only thnt, he commands moro bat
tleships of modern type than smy other
naval officer in the world, and tne only
country whoso blue pennant floats over
a more numerous fleet of all kinds of
warships is Lord Charles Bercsford, and
he is of greater rank than a Vice-Admiral,
being an Admiral, like Dewey.
On tins cruise the American fleet is
to touch in many foreign ports and is
to exchange courtesies with foreign
fleets in several places in Brazil, Chile,
Argentina and other countries. The
American commander, supposing he is
to Totain his present title of Rear-Admiral,
would bo outranked, for the
navies of all these countries coutaiu
oflicers of the grade of Vice-Admiral.
which would make the American com
mander's position humiliating.
It would be pointed out in Admiral
Evans's case that not only is he by li is
remarkable service entitled to this ad
vancement, but any objcctious to the
creation of this new grade that might'
be broached in Congress might be over
come by pointing to the fact that as
Admiral Evans retires next August, tho
office will be of short duration.

Other Leaders in Financial IjH
World Unhesitatingly Sub- H
mitted to His Guidance. H
Process of Getting Back to Nor- !
mal Conditions Will, of H
Course, Be Slow. !
NEW YORK, Oct. 27. The chaotic j ,1
conditions which existed at ono time - j
last week in New York had entered ''fl
upon improvement before tho week i ;H
ended, and confidence was growing that 'M
the worst had been seen. A man was i 'M
found who could ride in the whirlwind j H
and disregard the storm, and by common i; ;H
consent the leaders in the financial H
world subordinated their actions to the H
guidance of J. Pierpont Morgan. With
affairs thus submitted to the direction Til
of a central intelligence, much was al- ill
ready gained for a readjustment. Th j !H
position began to define itself as th-3 ISH
dissolving elements in a solution are- (ffll
made to crystallize around a center kH
Tho situation that began to emerge was Kl
found not so hopeless as had .been hH
t feared, the prevalent features, indeed, fll
having risen to the stage of unreason !?H
and hysteria among depositors in tho itH
institutions which wcro subjected to 'HH
runs. However lacking in reason, tho ol
condition thus precipitated was sufli- llfH
ciently serious, and tho various indl- KH
cations of this wore striking and often ul
sensational. The pressure on credits, ill
even in the expanded condition to which If H
they had attained, had become severe,
every barometer having reflected this jlH
for many months past; tlH
Drawing Down Deposits. IH
The events in New York resulted in jH
drawing down iu tho deposits of banks, l
thus diminishing the very basis of tho 1
volume of credits. The consequenco tH
was a violent coushuction of credits, H
which proved a-blight on values whero uH
it touched. The task confronting tho IB
financial generals in New York was to jg H
limit, as far as powible, the field of
operation of theso constructions of
j credit. The Secretary of the Treasury H
, came into co-operation with the great
, capitalists of the country to supply BH
resources for meeting the crisis. SI
Tho requirement was a heavy one, v HH
. owing to the contagious nature of the
financial fright and tho general move- 21
mcnt which lollowed among bankiug in- jlH
stitutions to fortify themselves oven be- il
yond their needs. Millions of ready H
, money had to be thrown into the vaults II
of the trust companies which were sus- 1H
taiuing a run. while demands were made mU
on the banks bv other trust companies
which had funds on deposit with tho II
banks. As tho great depositary center l
of the country, New York ba'nks are l
subject to similar demands from all over
tho country during a period of threat- JlH
cuing monetary conditions. The conse- !l
quence was tfiat credit in certain de- SI
partments of the 11101103 market was IH
practically paralyzed. This was true of uH
operations in the stock market, where oH
a condition of deadlock had developed SI
by Thursday which was only broken by lil
the offering of $25,000,000 on call when
tho traders wore in greatest need ,of it. jjH
Will Take Time to Cure. H
It is not expected that affairs will SH
subside immediately into placidity after MH
so violent an upheaval. The lopping off vjjH
of offending members of the nnancial H
body has made wide progress, and tho
removal of a threatening factor in the
New York banking situa'riou is viewed M
with gratification by all frifiids of solid- l
ity and safetv in banking. Even groat-
cr gratification is fell, over the opening HH
of the way to reform Now York trust jjl
company situations. Orderly co-opera- kI
Hon and mutual assistance among theso AH
powerful institutions are in themsolves l
important achievements and notable ad- jH
ditions to the fortifying of the whole IJH
financial fabric. Theso measures have
sprung up full-grown out of the week's )
situation. Provision for systematic in- (
formation of the actual condition of tho ((
trust companies aud periodical repjvts
