These are plain, iT thev are unpleasant, facts Moreovei, it is not too much to saj that the future or this fine joung Stute Ins been much wrapped up in this verj Senatorship contest It was adver tised to the world three or four months ago (when the church authorities openlj declared that thev would beat Thatcher for Senator because he had not choen to brc ik the faith, as thev nad done,) that the old order of things in Utah, the con trol of secular arfatrs bj the Alormon Church, was still in vogue, u situation made more the regrettable because of the broken promises that this should not be so Utah has a great future with her mines or gold and silver, with her un discovered mineial liches, with her sa lubrious climate, which with her Great Sait Lake and her mineial springs, is hirdlj to be equalled elsewhere in the world Later we shall know whether this defeat of the anti church candidate will have to do with keeping capital and setth rs awaj from this new Eldorado Ihe miners and the capital required to ,vork the mines don't care, possiblj; but the persons most intelligentlj interested in the future or Utah want to see m these fertile vallevs something more than a collection of mining camps And they wonder whether such a thing will be posslblo without political liberty.
