BUILDING FOIL 1891
If there arc In Salt Lake city any patri
otic men with money it is to be hoped that
they will show their patriotism 1n a sub
stantial way this year We mean by this
that they will spend their cash in ways
which will benefit the city Last year was
a splendid one for Salt Lake becauso of
the vast sums expended for labor and
building material Millions were thus in
vested Everybody whoi wanted work
found employment and fair wages were
paid The brickmakers tho quarrymen
and the lumber dealers wet all busy and
it is assumed that all made money It is
certain that the city derived great benefit
from the building operations
But what in that lino is on for this year
So far as can be learned thero is absolute
certainty as to nothing It is known that
some structures which were in contempla
tion for the present year have been aban
doned or at least delayed while it is
said that others which have been
started will not be proceeded with
this season A gentleman who made up
bis mind last year to erect a costly struc
ture in 1S91 tells us that he thinks the
building business was somewhat overdone
In 1890 and that he will probably wait
another year The head of a leading firm
of contractors which could not get enough
men or material last year says his com
pany has not taken a single contract for
this year and he can learn of no building of
uny considerable proportions going up He
says there was never a time in the history
of the city when the builders were better
prepared for work Material is now
plentiful whereas last year much of tho
season passed before brick stone and lum
ber could be obtained <
We do not think there was too much
building in 1890 There are few if any un
occupied stores and many of our merchants
would be pleased to go into better quarters
than they have been able to find Offices
seem as scarce as ever while the demand
for dwelling houses continues far ahead of
the supply With such a condition of things
ono who has the money ought not to hesi
tate about building as an investment If
the alarm which has affected some of our
capitalists shall overcome them all we fear
that the present season will not prove a
very progressive ono for Salt Lake and if
that fear is not going to affect our
men of means it is time they were an
nouncing their intentions and getting
ready for operations
THE HERALD is not nervous over the out
look We believe the year will be a pros
I perous one and that its achievements in
I tile building line will prove entirely satis
factory but there is no use trying to hide
the fact that there is abroad a feeling of
doubt and apprehension which would be
overcome if the capitalists would say that
1 they intend to keep up the pace which was
seta year or two ao and SOB to it that Salt
Lake does not rest with what has been
done There is a good deal in public confi
dence and the capitalists can inspire that
confidence
I
CONGRESSMAN FLOWER says he is willing
to accept the Democratic nomination to the
governorship of iJfew York There was a
time when FLOWER thought that anything
less than the Presidency of the United
States was not good enough for him
CLEVELAND went to the White House by
the gubernatorial path HILL is traveling I
the same road and perhaps FLOWER has I
concluded that the only way to reach the
top position is via the governorship
Hence his seeming condescension
THE COUNTYS MORTGAGES
The county recorder has been listing the
mortgages in his books for the convenient
of the assessor and we understand these
foot up 6331 People will say this is a
pretty bad showing In fact it is a bad
showing It tells that there are a good
many debtors in Salt Lake county and
that a good deal of the property is pledged
for the payment of debts We fear that
the boast can no longer bo made that every
body owns tho house in which he lives
The sums involved in these mortgages are
not given but we understand tho aggre
gate would be something enormous and
fairly startling to the conservative mem
bers of the community who have looked
upon debt as almost criminal
And yet the showing is not so bad as it
nppears on its face Of the 0381 recorded
mortgages many are on chattels as house
hold furniture musical instruments
machinery etc which have been pur
chased on the installment plan Then
there are hundreds of old mortgages which
were recorded eight ten and fifteen years
jfgo most of which have been satis
fled but never cancelled and others
are outlawed by limitation We
believe that if a seegregation were made
the live mortgages separated from tho dead
and the chattel and realty mortgages listed
each by themselves the showing would not
be alarming either in the matter of num
bers or in the amount of tho indebtedness
We cannot think that so large a percentage
of the people as the fignres would indicate
have mortgaged their possessions
There is this to be said in connection
with these debts that it is rare indeed that
mortgage is foreclosed This fact shows
that even if tho indebtedness is extraor
dinary the debtors are able to meet their
obligations as they fall due
It may be remarked that the great ma
z jority of the mortgages have been recorded
within the past two years
I THE SEGROES were taught that Mr
ri CLEVELAXD would delight in their reen
slavement and that such a result would
assuredly follow his continuance in the
It White House As a matter of fast the
r lack man never had a better friend than
CLEVELAND who appointed many of them
to office and would have given mbre of
them places if their education and training
had qualified them for the duties The
other day a negro of Mississippi who was i
trying to raise money with which to estab
lish a school for the instruction of colored
children wrote to the exPresident for a i
contribution Mr CLEVELAND replied
promptly and enclosed his check for S23
In his letterhe said Tho condition you
describe has arrested my attention and tho I
projects you have in hand for the improve
ment of your people interest me so much
that Ifeel like aiding you though it must
be to but a slight extent I have an idea that
opportunities for education and practical
information among the colored population
are most necessary to the proper solution
of the race question of the south At any
rate it seems to me to be of utmost import
ance that if our colored boys are to exer
cise in their mature years the right of citi
zenship they should be fitted to perform
their duties intelligently and thoughfully
I hope that in the school you seek to estab
lish tho course of teaching will be directed
to this end
IT is related that during the late sena
torial contest in New Hampshire all the
candidates kept open headquarters until
the caucus had decided BLAIU offered only
apples and oranges to his guests not even
tendering cigars BLAIII was badly left
in in the caucus Those who are interested
may put this and that together
THE REPUBLICAN journals alleging that
Democrats are obstructionists may be re
ferred to the words of Senator HAm s
when similarly taunted with delaying the
necessary business in the Senate If you
move to proceed to the consideration of ap
propriation bills or of anj of the measures
sou have mentioned you can get unanimous
consent on this side
The Republicans are obstructing legisla
tion with the force bill and laying tho
blame on the Democrats The country is
watching the proceeding
THE SUPREME court of Massachusetts has
decided that a man injured in a railroad ac
cident cannot collect damages from the
company if he is traveling on a pass This
opinion will not cause tho newspaper fel
lows to travel less but they will be unani
mous in the declaration that the judicial
bench of Massachusetts has degenerated
sadly
THE JIAYOlld ARGUMENT
The mayors argument is not a pro
nounced success It is intended to justify
tile trebling of tho ordinary expenses of
the city on the ground that the extraordin
ary expenses hate simply kept pace with
those of the quarter preceeding the inau
guration of the Liberal government
It justifies the expenditure of amillion of
dollars last year on the plEa thatifthe rata
of expenditure of the preceding three
months when the main sewei was put in
at a cost of 7091940 had kept up at the
rate at which it was then preceding the
expenditure of the city government in
other hands would have been as great as it
has been under Liberal administration
The objection to this point is that people
had no idea when they voted for sewerage
that they thereafter pledged themselves to
a perpetual tax as great as tho sower tax
had been
The mayor seems to doubt as well ho
might whether the present council has
actually expended the surplus of a quarter
of a million on hand at the beginning of
their term of office and says If we as
sumo that we uavo expended the entire
sum of 26332097 of extra revenue etc
The obvious comment upon which is that i
if the money hasnt been expended then
where is it
The mayor then shows that tho city can
obtain a supply of water by the expendi
ture of sums aggregating according to his
estimate some 30000 This is indeed re
freshing
The apology for tho street improvements
is hardly worth quotation or comment
Tho mayor notes with some satisfaction
that the miles of waterpipe laidjluring the
year makean addition of over CO per cent
to the whole amount laid prior to January
1 1SOO As every cent d moreof this ex
pense is borne by property owners through
special taxes the wonder is that the city
was satisfied with laying so few of them
With practically no increase in the water
supply and a 60 per cent increase in the
number of miles of mains laid we have a
pair of facts that appear to fit very inhar i
moniouslv
The finances of the police department are
not given but the sewer department
makes a good showing in expenditures
reaching 15384399 while the expenses of
the lire department also loom up
The argument to show how wisely the
city has expended 10000 on plans for the
city and county building somewhat weak
but has tho distinction of being unsup
ported by comparisons with the quarter
preceding etc
We shall review the items more at length
in the near future

FACT OR FICTION
Last Sunday morning the Tribune said
The Illustrated American of New York city
is publishing a series of articles on Mor
monism Tho articles in the main are fair
From some authority the Illustrated Ameri
can ha3 received its information and natur
ally it reaches the conclusion that the
Saints have not in any honest ense aban
doned polygamy
The articles in the journal the local shoot
refers to discussed the theme Will the Mor
mons fight and had only an incidental
reference to polygamy The inference and
conclusion of each article was to the effect
that the Mormons would fight and actually
intended to do so And with the articles
which declared the Mormons would fight
before his eyes the Tribune scribe said
gleefully Tho articles in the main are
I fair
It is not to be wondered at that the issue
of the same sheet two days later contained
tho following Who dampens and chills
the atmosphere alPatmospheres the reli
gious the social the political the business
=
atmosphere It is your man of facts and
truth There is nothing so benumbing
The man who having lived hero for
years could deliberately perjure his soul
by saying of the fiendish productions re
referred to that the articles the main
are fair might well console himself with
an apostrophe to falsehood and deduce
mans belief in immortality from his nat
I ural propensity to lie as the BashiBazouk
did in the issue of the 27th
l
t The Liberal city council of Salt Lake at
its latest session on Tuesday evening
unanimously adopted tho following resolu
tions
Whereas the Impression obtained by read
ing tho articles bearing upon the Mormon ques
tion published in tho Illustrated American is
such as to unsettle the eastern public confidence
in the soundness of the commercial Interests of
this city be it
Resolved That a committee of this council
be appointed to officially refute by telegram or
otherwise the statements contained in the De
cember 27th issue of the Illustrated American to
the effect that Utah Is about to make war upon
the United States and be it further
Resoled That tho committee be requested
to obtain the cooperation of tho territorial
officers and the Salt Lake chamber of com
merce in this refutation and that the same be
caused to be published in the Illusraled Ameri
can The mayor named Pembroke Hall and Kar
rick as the committee to refute the publications
named
Now it is certain that the council is mis
taken or else the Tribune lied when it pro
nounced the articles fair That what it
publishes is false howaver makes no dif
ference to that sheet it believes in false
hood and says facts and truths dampen
chill and benumb the atmosphere it likes to
revel in A great many editors would like
to be free to let their imagination run in
the same way for it is much harder to
writo when ono has to be governed by
facts but it is only in this community that
an editor can give free reign to his imagina
tion with the moral certainty that
nine out of every ten of
his readers will never care
whether the imaginary vaporings they read
have any solid foundation or not II is a
great crime these Tribune readers are com
mitting against themselves f when they
have read for the twentieth time somo
statement that they know to be false they
will be unconsciously influenced by it as
though it contained more or less truth
and when they read as they do from day to
day falsehood after falsehood which they
have no means of probing they will become
wholly imbued with the false sentiments
and will act accordingly The wellworn
words of POPE find ready application hero
Vice is monster of so frightful mien
As to be bated needs but to be seen
Yet seen too oft familiar with her face
We first endure then pity then embrace
And it is precisely the same in reading the
unrestrained imaginings of a writer who
is not obliged tokeep within the boundaries
of truth rbtit prefers rather to let imagina
tion take the placepf sober fact and dull
veracity I m
