FRIDAY i i OCT. 8. mn.
ROBBRT L. TAYLOR, of Washington.
JAMES rilELAX. of Shelby.
The report mads to the gevernment
by the '(ah Commission is one tbat
ought to receive profound attention
Attorn every eupporter of law and order,
and especially from these who Uko in
terest in the moral condition oi tbe
people. In Utah tbe mass of the peo
ple either practice cr fanatically Bup
poit tie practice of polygamy. In
this and other States that prcctice is
pun'shed hy penitentiary inruiiaon'
meet.' One cf two things must be
done either pun'sbrnont for polyg
my mnitbs perm tttd in o'.l.er States
or it mutt be ebol.shed in Uiah. Con
gress lasrfsstd laws in favor of the
totter cour.e, but tho report of the
commission shows that the measures
sow taken are no more ( IT dual than
the Popo's bull against the inoou,
Where there is force to put dawn po
lvgamy it h?s decreased; where there
ia not such marriages go on as before,
and where Ihey do not the general
sentiment is in favor of thein as be
fore. What ca we exr.eit when the
United Siatea has no maniage law. If
it had tad cne polygamy in Utah
could no more prevail than burglary
and forg-ry. Kr act marrisgs law
and demand compliance with it, no
other mode of civil mairiag beirg
lawful, and a genuine bBginning would
be made toward cleansing Utah of the
vile pollution of polygamy.
It is a common belief that when
any country exports more than it tin
ports it is s gait-er, but when it iin
ports more than it exports it is a lover ;
and the published reports speak of
the one sot of returns as being "favor
able" and of the other as "unfavor
able." Suoh is not always the caso,
however. For instance, when Eng.
land, has built up great cities and vast
fortunes by importing -aoottan,. aiu-'h
..importation was far from "unfavor
able," and when our ta.iff excludes
raw material, by the manufacture of
which mony could be made, although
inch exclusion decreases import), it is
larfrom being a "favorable" palicy
India bat greatly increased its exports
o( late years, but the people there re
gard the change as ai unfavorable
one. From a statement made in the
Eoglish Parliament last summer, they
" are evidently corraot in their opinion.
From that atatument we learn that
. within forty years Indian export!
have increased from 18.000,000 to
f 140,000,01)0,. yet that country has, at
farthest, made no ma'erial progress,
and poverty t the vsrge of famine pre
vails. I m ports of cheap European goods
have destroyed maiy native indus
tries, driving thousands ti the tillage
oi tbe land that wes a'ready injured
by over tillage, or was too poor to
make any prolitible return. The
Undone generally view the vast ex
port of proJuce as impoverishing t
the country. A poople not over half
fed sea the food, for want of which
they era Buffering, carried out of the
country, to that the surplus of exports
over imports runs from 20,000,000 to
25,000,000 annually. Ireland, aleo,
present! a ewe whore bredntuits are
exported in abundance, while the
mass of the people live npon potatoes,
and die from famine when the potato
crop fill's. We have here pro f ot an
undeniable character tint the cxpoita
oi s country may stea lily surpass its
import', and yet thn proiluc-ra of
what is exported remtvn in povmty
that amounts to destitution. A popu
t nncUritanding of the facts here
pieeented would lend to very valuable
reforms In the construction of our own
, tarifl.
It la a matter of univerial satiefao
. tion that the improvement cur trado
ha experienced proves to bs no torn
pcrary "tpnrt," but an improvement
that only unf raeen events can prevent
becoming psrrxaijeut. To eecure such
permanency all that is reeded is that
