The Republicans will be thankful that they won, the Democrats, that it was no worse, the Populists, that they made small gains. And every body will be thankful that the election is over, and all can take a rest. The young rising attorney, oE Salt Lake City, H. A.

Mr. Hamm k one of "God's noblemen," and is a clear headed, honest business man be sides. The Broad Ax wishes him success in thk new field as he richly deserves. The new town of Mercur will be greatly benefitted by the location of such men. Brother W. W. Taylor has resur rected the Plain Double Dealer and proposes to "hang on to the willows" a while longer. Among a lot of senseless twaddle last week, he says "he has the names of all the colored men who voted and worked for the Democratic ticket in the Fifth Pre cis ct." If he has, he has got a list of very respectable persons. What his purpose k, he does aot state. Perhaps he means that they are to be spotted; if so, we would kindly .suggest that the gentleman himself better "take heed test he fall."

Fishermen have queer customs. A few years ago the fishermen of Preston, Lancashire, used actually to go fishing on Sunday. It seems incredible, but they did. A clergyman of the town used to preach against this Sabbath desecra tion and pray that they might catch no fish.

To understand the relation of Mussul man rule to religions and intellectual freedom wo must note the influence of the conquest of Persia an the Arab mind. When the invaders took the cap ital city of Khosru, they did not know the value of booty. Some offered to ex change gold for silver, and others mis took camphor for sulphur. They came like Bwarms of half starved locusts to devour the land. They were banditti of the desert, with no culture but the in spiration of the plans. The only idea rf government in these tribes was the leadership of age and valor, as repre sented in the sheik, with a natural mix ture of hereditary respect. On the death of Mohammed they broke into rebellion. Islam really came on the world like a fierce descent of desert clans on their foes. Mohammed's ideal of government was just to send his goveraors through Arabia to establish Islam and then to collect tribute from the poor in camels and sheep; also as plunder to meet the expense of his caapaiga. Under these circumstances it was an absolute neces sity for the founders of the Humlmaa empire in the east to adopt in the main the financial and administrative experi ence of their more cultured subjects.
