A delegation called on President Cleveland recently and presented a protest against the enforcement of the law. Mr. Cleveland assured them that the present administration had nothing to do with the Edmunds law except to see that it was impartially administered. This is all that is expected of Mr. Cleveland.

This is a more vital question than that of civil nervice reform, and if the president desires to further entrendc himself in the good will of all parties he must take a firm stand on the Mormon luestion. If this law becomes a dead etter-made inoperative through the appointment of men to positions in i he territory who are not in sympathy with its enforcement or who are other rise instructed, then Mr. Cleveland etter return to the bosom of Mariar, or the people will have no further use c or him.
