POSTAL SAVINGS BILL PASSED. Tho U, S. Senate in a prolonged ses sion has passed a much' patched and inconsistent bill lo create postal sav ings as ii part of tho Government func tions. The condition of I ho measure is duo lo tho importunate determination of Senator Carter, in charge of tho bill, to got; it passed, binding to its sup port any ouo who made a show of strength in offering amendments, by accepting thoso amendments. U is like ly that tho IIou8o will completely re model (ho bill, following tho Senate precedent as to tho tariff bill, which the upper house of Congress mado over altogether, from the form in which the lower house passed it. When cx-Scnator John C. Spooner de livered his opinion that there was no authority under tho Constitution for tho passage of such a bill, unless it could bo found in the borrowing power of Congress, and when other eminent con stitutional lawyers, as Ttoot and Bailey, concurred in that view, and whou Seu ator Boot offered his amendment squarely resting tho bill on that power, it was inovitablo that tho Senate must yield. And then came Smoot with his draft of an amendmont putting tho idea into compromise form, and tho bill as passed carries his wording, allowing tho Government to withdraw postal de posits from tho banks in which it has put them, whenever the credit of tho Government roqnircs.it, and invest tho same in' U. S. bonds. This is evidently a halfvway proposition between the view that these postal deposits should remain in tho banks, and the view that they must be invested in IT. S. bonds, bringing the measure, lep.hnicallj' at least, as evidently hoped, into tho bor rowing provision of the Constitution. It is very doubtful, however, if this verbal .iuggloiy will help tho validity of tho proposed law. For, it being not primarily a question of Government need to borrow, but only an ultimate refuge, tho caso would stand before tho courts precisely as though this amend ment had not boon inserted. And when it is seen, furthor, that Souator Borah's amendment to Smoot 's amendment was also taken on, it is evident that the caso is mado worse and worse; for as the bill now reads, it would never be possible for tho Government credit to be on a two per cent basis, as it has been heretofore, if these postal depos its aro to bo utilized by the Govern ment as a loan; for tho Borah amend ment expressly and absolutely requires that all Government bonds taken .by these deposits must draw at least 2 VI per cent interest. And thus tho absolute need of a com plete revision, and largely a rewriting, of this bill bv tho House is impera tive. In its present form it is clearly adverse to tho interests of the National Government. And besides, as it ob ! scares tho very basis upon which the measure confessedly must rest, it is practically certain to bo invalidated by the IT. S. Supreme Court, as having no warrant in tho Constitution for its existence. SELP HELP IS BEST. From Mr. J. M. Lamb, who resides at Roosevelt, Utah, Tho Tribuno has re ceived a communication bearing upon tho matter of tithes and their expendi ture by the Mormon leaders, and con taining a suggestion as to ono avp nitc through which a helpful appropria tion might bo made. Mr. Lamb calls attention to the fact that a great part of the tithing money is utilized in various and numerous in dustrial, commercial and financial insti tutions, a complete list of which " as been given 1)3' Tho Tribuno heretofore. He also calls attention to tho fact that man3 of these investments are not at all helpful to the Mormon people who contribute to the tithe fund. His sug gestion pertains to a need which is felt bjr tho people of his town. Ho sa3's that a flouring mill would bo of immense holp to them, stating moantimo that Ihcy havo there an experienced millor. This miller now proposes to erect a flouring mill, although financially un able lo do so. Mr. Lamb wants to know wh3 President Joseph P. Smith could not order that tho tithes collected from the saints in Boosovelt bo sub scribed toward defrajing tho cost of tho flouring mill, after deduction of the expense of collection, for a period of two 3'cars. Ho thinks this would bo putting the monoy to much better uso than it is sometimes applied to. In one respect The Tribune would bo unablo lo give approval to Mr. Lamb's plan, because wo oppose the church in an3' sort of commercialism. On the oth er hand, wo are of the opinion that if tho church were lo bo countenanced in au3' such aclivit3' at all, ho suggests a plan that is of as high merit as could attach to an3' in tho realm of commerce. But The Tribuno has a suggestion to offer. Why not tho people of Boosovelt quit paying the tithe money over to tho church, to bo diverted in other and less commendable directions, and devote it of their own accord to the building of, a flouring mill? If it is right for tho church to expend church money in com morco, wiry is it not rijjhl for tho church members who donate that church mone3' to do. likewise in uolf-hclp of a struggling little community? "A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.'' Wlvy not retain the mone' in hand! it will bo worth infinitely moro there than : in the capacious maw of tho church, whore- it is swallowed up and goes out in directions and to individuals of which and whom the contributors wot not. Lot tho Rooscvoltiana kcop their own money and expend their own cash and build their own flouring mill. That would seem to .bo tho better plan. But our local "Republicans" who aro again beginning to "iusurgo" against tho impositions of tho Federal bunch, aro reminded that Apostle-Sen-nlor Smoot. 's observation concerning tho fact, ia likely to be "What I ho hell do 1 care?" THOSE SMITH CRIBBINOS. Some days ago Tho Tribuno printed in parallel columns the Beatitudes ns carried in tho New Testament, and the bungling variant of these as given in the Book of Mormon. Tho proof was clear that tho imitation was a cribbed porvorsioii. The church organ denies this, and asks what, sense there would bo in a plagiarism so sure to be cx posod. To which the obvious reply is that it is quito of a piece with ho many other Jimpudont impostures from the samo source, that the quer3' of the or gan falls flat. This perversion is but one caso. Tho presumptuous outgiving of an alleged "inspired translation" of the Bible is another; and this is so gross an imposture and fraud that even the Mormon priests themselves refuse to have anything to do with it, Tho stoalings from other sources aro equally plain, and equally subject lo exposure; but that did not prevent their use. And every time there is such theft il is for the worse; a presentation is mado which is shockingly inferior to the source from which it is taken; and this absolutob' disposes of any pretension lo divinity in tho Smith stuff. Tho wholo process reminds one of tho story of a plain old Mcnnonite, who hated show and despised boauly: and who, on buj-ing a wagou that was bright fith paint and polish, took a broom, dipped it in a mud puddle, and smeared the wagon with the slime. The organ is guilty in its argument of tho grossest offenso known io log icians: of bogging the wholo question. It assumes that Jesus Christ spoko his Sermon on tho Mount on difforent oc- t .....1 t 1, it ln l,r Ncphitcs in America. To accept this latier, however, is io accept the Mor mon claim and foundation, which is the very thing donicd, and there is not the least credible evidence lo sup port it. As lo tho varying versions in tho gospol narratives, U103' arc no greater than might be oxpoctod in ac counts transmitted in wholo or in part b3r word of mouth; thoy all probably camo from one original source. Tho organ delivers a "learned" dis course on the different versions of the s3rnoptic gospels as to this and other matters related, aud on tho variations in translation. To all such puerile stuff it is needful only to rcplv in tho words of Job to his presumptuous friend, Zophar, the 2sraamathit.e, "Yea, who knoweth not such things as these?" All that is absoluteb' aside from tho question. It is a perfectly plain case. The Christian gospels were cas'il)' ac cessible to any one; they contained just tho sort of material required for such a work as the Book of Mormon; and they were used in a bungling, ignorant way, n'ust na would necossarily bo ex pected from an ignorant person; and just as the form of religious service was copied and followed, as known to (Joseph Smith. And it must bo said that in his cribbings from the Christian Scriptures for his "Bible" and new dispensation, he made an exceedingly poor 'job. THE NEW POLYGAMISTS. On Saturday evening the Deseret News editorially gavo amplo evidence of tho fact that it favors tho present rccrudescenco of the polygamous prac tico within tho Mormon church, and that it is disposod lo screen and defend new pob'gamists. It sa3s: But wo humbly submit that repetition of a. score of names, or half a hundred of names, even if the allegations were true, docs not prove what Tho Tri bune wants to prove. If it proves any thing at all it proves that the sheet Is wrong, for wo may depend vipon it, If It really had any proofs it would not be under the necessity of resorting to such a transparent trick. Tho very trickery proves tho weakness of the cause. Hero we have the same old hypocrit ical co "You can't prove it." The Deseret New3 is aware of the true con dition of affairs as affecting tho un lawful practice which it seeks to cover up. It knows that ifc is absolutely im possible for an outsider to furnish con victing proof, because it knows that not oven tho women victims of the polyga mous cult could supply that evidence. It is true that tho women could, if U1C3' would, bring proof of the polygamous relationship maintained, but so far as furnishing legal evidence of the unlaw ful ceremony is concernocl, thoy would be as powerless as an outsider. Be sides, evidence of the existing relation ship would rather tend to depreciation of tho character of tho women because of their participation in this relation ship; and for that reason it is not to bo expected that such evidence will- be forthcoming from that source. The man could supply the proof and, metaphori cally, hang himself. Which he, of course, will not do. The priest who per formed the ceremony could testify to that fact; but therein he would givo the wholo snap awa3'. And yet, oven in this latter case, there is a possibilit3' that his evidence would not count. If th6 man and the woman wcro deter mined to combine in screening them selves from a charge of new polgamous marriage, as naturally thci would, they could deny oven tho priest's testi mony; aud tho two against tho one would constitute a propondoraiico of evidence in denial. The matter is so arranged that no positive proof can bo obtained the parties to these ployga mous crimes arc so situated that neither could well move against the other with out solf-conviction. And tho wholo offi cialdom of the Mormon church, as well as tho church publication agencies, arc always ready to step forward and deny any and all charges in this matter. The church supplies money, influenco and other assistance lo enable now polyga mous criminals to evade or escape the law, Tho entire cult is in 0110 united aud secret plot to perpctuato the un lawful practice and thero is no ond in deceit, trickery and downright false hood to which they will not go in order to protect tho doers of their will. The News pretends that there is no foreo in Tho Tribune's courso of print ing the names of tho known lawbreakers from timo lo timo. If that wero true, why doos tho church organ make its complaint? Surely a method that is so harmless as tho News saj'S this one is deserves no serious attention. But its true regard of The Tribune's forceful and tolling warfare upon the polyga mous crimes of the Mormon church is exposed in tho wail that the church or gnn sets up because of it. And again wo hoar that old sophistry that even if there arc infractions of the law, the Mormon church doos not countenance them and is not responsi ble for them. What church in, then, re sponsible for what the offenders call "living their religion?" It was origi nally a Mormon doctrine, and is now a Mormon doctrine, rind is neither taught, countcnancod or 'practiced in any other church. President Joseph F. Smith says today that polygamy is a principle 111 which ho believes at the present time just as much as ho ever did In his li'fo. Where is thero a higher authority in tho matter? Whon tho Senate Commit tee on Privileges and Elections called for the marriage records of tho church the books wero hidden away. For what purpose? Simply to hide the new and old pohgamous crimes of the lawbreak ing fanatics. This in itself is tho fullest proof that the church protects polygamy and ploygumists, old and new, and is responsible for all. Whether thero be one or ono thousand cases of new polygam tho Mormon church is re sponsible, bocauso ifc encourages the crimes by refusing to bring punishment upon the offenders, either in the church or in tho courts of the State. It is a sure thing, also, that the cases we print arc not a tithe of the wholo number of transgressors. And not ono of this list has ever denied his guilt. If tho Deseret News would show to some effect that the Mormon church is not responsible for new polygamy, let it produce an instance of church pun isnicut of new polygamy. It must ad mit that tho crime exists, because it has bceif confessed officially by tho first presidency of tho church, and the gen eral conference of April, 1907. There fore let il show proof of proper pun ishment if it would make good its position. A WYOMING PROTEST. The people of Sheridan, Wyoming, are pushing for relief from a proposed ad ministration measure which would ef fcctively deter the settlement of theso mountain regions. Senator Nelson of Minnesota has introduced the bill, ap parently at the request of tho President. It would, if passed, withdraw from en try all public lauds containing coal, or supposed to contain coal. To this, Rep resentative Moudell of Wj'oining pro poses an amendment which would per mit of this entry of tho lands, taking in such entry onlr surface rights, and giving no claim to coal which might later be discovered under ground. The Sheridan Chamber of Commerce at a recent meeting passed tho follow ing preamble and resolutions on this subject: Whereas. It Is the belief of the mem bers of the Chamber of Commerce of Sheridan, Wyoming, that the interests of Sheridan County, the State of Wyoming, and other western states, would be ad vanced by the unaclmcnt into law of H. R. 13907, "to provide for agricultural en tries on coal lands;" be It Resolved, that our Representatives in Congress be urged to support this meas ure In the fullest, and be encouraged In making such effort as will secure Its passage during the present term of Con gress. Bo It further Resolved, that copies of these resolu tions he forwarded to our United Slates Senators and Rcprcsentath'e from Wyo ming, and, that also the co-opcrntldn of other Chambers of Commerce and Mike organizations In Wyoming and neighbor ing states be asked in support of our members in Congress in urging speedy passage of this measure. The different commercial bodies, as well as tho peoplo generally, in the States affected b3' this measure arc urged by tho Sheridan Chamber of Commerce to request the support of their Seuators and Representatives for this Mondell bill for "agricultural en tries on coal lands." And the Sheridan Post puts up this able argument in support of it: There Is ono point tho people of Wyo ming do not want lo overlook If they would have the slate settled up by thoso who deslro to engage In agriculture, and it Is agreed on all hands that we do want this class; and that is the importance to tho state of the Mondell bill separating the surface of the laud from the coal con tained or supposed to bo contained there in. The President hns a conservation pro gramme not all of which is good for tho west nor even fair to it. because it seeks to establish laws for tho control of the natural resources of the west which did not govern during the building up and settlement of the east, middle west and tho other sections of tho country. In the othor sections, the most liberal terms of settlement were granted thoso who would enter in and develop the terri tory. The land, the resources, Including water and fuel, were all theirs for the taking. Hence, tho peoplo llockod to thoso .states, carved out their homes in the wilderness or on the plain, built cities and towns, roads and bridges, and es tablished communication between com munities. With an even more lavish liberality were tho railway corporations Induced to build their lines east and west, north and south. All was encouragement In that day and the states grow and bo came great. Now, when it has come to the building of tho fow remaining stales, and which, by the way, have within their borders greater and moro varied resources than any of the older ones, there comes a de cided inclination to hamper and de lay an enthusiastic and enterprising peo ple In doing bigger things for tho country than have ovor been accomplished by the older slates. One of tho President's measures Intro duced by Senator Nelson authorizes tho aocretary of the interior to withdraw from entry, pending Investigation and survey by the geological department of such public lands as contain coal or aro sup posed to contain coal. Tho danger of granting such authority by law Is. that the secretary could withhold from entry great areas desirable for farms by thoso coming to tho state to make homes for themselves. The withdrawing of such land instantly retards the settlement and it may be a matter of eight or ten years before the department gets around with its determination as to whether tho land in question Is coal-bearing or non-coal-boarlng. While the departmont Is dallying with the question, further devel opment of the country in an agricultural way is held In abeyance. Tho west is more doeply interested in the raising of foodstuffs than it I3 in assisting a lot of geological sharps to hold their Jobs, and tho President and congress ought to take a similar view. For the sake of argument, lot us say there la great danger of the country's coal measures becoming exhausted and that they ought to bo conserved although residents of tho western coal territory would laugh at such a proposition, then what la to become of the farmer and the homesteader? Vast stretches of this so-called coal land contains no coal at all and everybody knows it. except the geological bureau at Washington. Yat we must wait a series of years until this bureau catches up on Its Informa tion. , ., Tho surface miiBt lie Idle, when it should bo dotted with irrigated or dry farms. This will bo tho condition most surely unless cured by tho adoption of the Mondell surface rights bill, which per mits the cntryman to take the nurfaco or public lands without reference to the coal-bcarlng. or non-coal-bearing, char acter of the land. If it la forbidden to go upon the sur face then tho agricultural development of the great north, south and middle sec tions of Wyoming will be at a standstill. The same is also true of tho Dakotas, Colorado. Montana and other slates. It cannot be believed that the federal government, which for several years past has wagori a righteous war on greed and grasp, should Itself descend from the exalted and munificent position It bore lo the rest of the Union and lay the iron hand of grasp upon Wyoming, Montana and a few othor states. It is quite true, as the Post says, that tho proposed restriction would hamper tho development of all this mountain region. It is also true, as wo havo many times stated, that tho set tlors of all this arid country arc suf ferers from the miscalled conservation policies, as no settlers in any part of tho Unitod States have ever boon to strictod before Always heretofore, the resources of tho region were open to tho settlors. It is only now, and in the hardost part of the wholo United Stales to dovclop, that the settlers arc hemmed in by restrictive devices and denied the opportunities and liberties hcroloforo frocly accorded to all for tho taking. As to this proposed Moudoll bill no doubt it must carry relief to tho set tlors b3' way of fixing a timo when their right to the lands thoy may enter will become absolute. For, wc all know, the government investigation as to whether laud is coal land or not, is liable to be long drawn out. And the entry man does not want to wait till his grandchildren become of ago before ascertaining his rights. today in history MONDAY, MARCH 7. Almanac Day. As far as wc can learn from history the llrst almanac was printed in Vienna, and was Issued in March, 1450. by Pur bach. Some authorities credit Martin liykus as tho llrst printer, and 1470 the year, but no date of lssuo Is mentioned, no copies aro oxtanl and there Is very little data upon which to base this claim. The Issuing of a calendar of tho year In some form or another, goes back to very ancient times. In tho British mu seum toduy is to bo seen copies of the Alexandrian Greek almanacs of tho thir teenth and fourteenth century. In manu script. Purbach. who compiled tho first printed almanac, was an astronomer. It was but little circulated. His pupil. Re glomontanus. however, took up the work with moro success, and carried It on for llfty-seven years, from 1-175 to 1531, for which he received .1 munificent donation from Matthias Corvlnus, king of Hun gary. Bernardo de Granolachs of Barcelona commenced the publication of an alma nac In 1-187; the printer. Engcl. of Vien na, in 111)1; and Stonier of Tubingen, in 1524. Copies of these arc now very rare. The fame and popularity of tho as trologer, Nostradamus, who prophesied the doalh of Henry II of France, gave such an impulse to the publication of predictions that in 1570 Henry II of Franco prohibited the insertion of any political prophecies In almanacs. The first almanacs published in Eng land wore Issued by tho Stationers' com pany. In the early part of the eighteenth century- In Scotland they appeared con siderably earlier than this. It is believed that the first common almanac In this country was for 1087. from Bradford's press in Philadelphia. Franklin's "Poor Richard's Almanac be gun In 1732. was kept up by him for twenty-five years, and was widely known both at homo and abroad for Its wise and witty sayings. "The American Almanac and Reposi tory of Useful Knowledge" was Issued In Boston from 1S2S to 1861; a continua tion, "The National Almanac." came out for two years only, 18G3 and 1SC4. Near ly every religious denomination nt pres ent has its special annual, either alma nacs or year book; and many trades, professions and enterprises have simi lar publications. Other of tho great almanacs of the past and still being Issued are the "Nautical Almanac' "Aimanach de Gotha." tho old French "Connaissance des Temps," the Berlin "Astronomischcs Jarbuch," und tho "American Nautical Almanac," which was begun In 1S59. March 7 is the birthday of many emi nent men: Lord Herschel, the celebrated English astronomer (1792); Stephen Hop kins, statesman (1707): William Hoalh. soldier and jurist (1737); Daniel Glraud Elliot, tho scientist (1S35); Edward P. Roe, tlic novelist (1838); the day on which occurred tho engagement between tho Randolph and Yarmouth (1778), and on which Webster made his famous speech to conciliate the south (1S50).
