HW C EDITORIALS. J H This paper Is on fllo at the American HHH Mining Congress, Denver, Colorado. B THE 8UPREME JUDGESHIP. R On tlie 20th of September, tho He- HHH puMir-n '"fl convention will con- HHH ireao In Salt take City (or tho purpose HHH , .. k candidate for tho Supremo HHH court of thn stnto unit n member of HHH congress. Of tho two, tho former In HHH tho most Important to the fit 3 to. HHH A Judge of tho Supremo court Is one HHH of tlireo men to whom ns II in I nrbl- HHH tors must como nil legal questions. HHH They arc tho II in I Interpreters of tho HHH law, as well n& tho sworn defenders of HHH tho constitution of the commonwealth HHH The mnn who occupies this position HHH should be ono of sound Judgment nnd HHH unspotted Integrity, as well ns a law- HHH ycr of tho profoundest learning. Ho HHH should be n man who In his position HHH Is superior to all partisanship; In a HHH word, n mnn who Is tho greatest of all, HHH an upright Judge. HHH Two names havo so far been prom I- HHH nontlv mentioned for tho supremo HHH Judgshlu. Those nro Judgo Morse of HHH tho Third Judicial 'district bench nnd HHH Judgo Krlck, tho senior member of tho HHH law firm of Krlck & Edwards of Snlt HHH tako City. Doth of these gentlemen HHh nro men who would lend honor to the HHH position, noth nro lawyers of pro- HHH round learning, both nro of the Judl- HHH clal turn of mind, both are grnnd HHH specimens of Amcrlcnn " citizenship, HHH both are men of rlpo Judgment HHH Either of them would make n superb HHh Justice of the Supremo court. Judge HHH Morso has still two vears of his term HHH on tb district bench to fill out, and HHH though his friends urge him for tho HHH higher position, there Is not wanting HHH mnnv who urgo that his place Is on HHfl tho bench to which ho was elected. HHI Ho has filled tho position with credit HHI to himself nnd to tho state, and HHI though his plnco no doubt could bo HHfl filled, vet ns was .said before?, many HHJ would like him to complete his term. HHfl As for Judgo Frlclc, thcro Is no nues- HHfl -tlon as to his qualification for tho HHfl position. Ho Is a mnn In tho full power of llfo, with ago enough to rlpon his Judgment. Tho Republican party would mako no mistake by mak ing him Its candidate. Ho also Is a stalwart Republican, and richly de serves tho honor of tho nomination. Ho Is a Republican of no faction a man that every wing of the pasty could support without causing any bickerings or strife. Ho Is superior to any ring and Is not nor cannot be made amenable to any machine. Both gontlemcn mentioned aro per sonally safe men, as wns said before. Hoth would mako superb Supremo Judgos. Barring tho fact that Judgo Morso already has n position In which ho Is needed, a choice would be hard to make. HAMMOND, CHAIRMAN. Tho Republican State committee on Tuesday last chose Hon. Jnmes T. Hnmmoml as chairman with power to select his own secretary. It was greatly against tho gcntloman'B wish, but on learning that ho was not com promised In any way nnd thnt ncccpt inco would Involve no change of at tltudo or views on his part, he de cided to accopt. A miro Judicious, diplomatic pro ceeding could not havo been taken. There is not a more upright. Inde pendent, earnest man in the Repub lican party, or any other, than Mr. Hammond. Ho desires, nnd has all ilong doslredr above all merely Hellish consideration, tho furthernnco of Re publican principles and tho prosperity of tho Republican organization. In which Important respects ho Is so much nt varlanco with those who havo been In control for some time that It was hardly believed so sensi ble, so proper a thing as his appoint ment wns possible If oven probable, ind It foil upon us llko tho proverbial shaft of lightning out of tho tradition al unclouded sky. No mnttcr; It camo rod Is Just as welcomo as If It had been expected. Hammond's appointment means a concession to tho great mass of Re publicans which In turn means a chnngo of front nnd esprit du corps which tho ranks havo long unknown. Hope, withering, had poised her drooping wings for flight nnd tho gaunt spectra of defeat beckoned tho tattered remnant on to Its last rally. Not even tho stimulation afforded by cheering words reached tho cars of what was still entitled to bo consid ered a wing of tho grand army. Ah, well, It Is different now. How differ ent, wo don't know, but it certain!) Is tho difference between tho execu tion of a ecntenco and the granting of a new trial the dlfferenco between a chance for llfo nnd tho certainty of death. Depend upon It that tho most will bo mado of tho opportunity, that the vantngo ground gained will be held and no stops backward will bo taken. It Is not n propor thing to Introduce n skeleton nt a banquet, or dwell upon a gloomy retrospection when a change for the hotter has taken placo. Still, a word by way of rovlow nt this point may havo n good offect, oven this point havo a good offect even though It may hero and thoro lo placed before unwilling eyes, From Its Inception nearly a year ago this llttlo paper In a spirit of friendli ness nnd with an unselfish desire to promote tho welfnro of tho Republi can party urged that steps bo taken, that concessions bo made, that means of conciliation bo adoptod, whereby i the Utah department of tho great or ganization could bo unified, or at least Its entitles bo toss antagonized than was tho case. These efforts attracted attention and rccolved notice; ono element, realizing tho correctness and aptness of our position, wero rejoiced that oven In this humble and re stricted way tho truo political gospel found a voice; the othor and controll ing clement had no uso for such "chat tor," and no words but thoso of con tempt for tho medium which gavo It expression. Even that, adding as it did the discouragement of shrunken patronago to tho dlscomflturo of slight ing treatment from thoso who person ally had always been regarded and treated as friends, did not crush tho struggling production nor squeeze Its audacious conductors out of tho field. They stayed. Thoy nro hero yet, do ing business at the old stand. But tho other peoplo hnvo moved at last and praises to Allah! moved In tho right direction. Thoso responsible for the Imported Journal conducted at a ruinous Ions, brought on to obscure and set aside all local talent In showing tho denizens of tho wild and woolly wilderness how Ropubllcnn newspa pers should bo conducted, havo met up with a Jostlo llko unto tho collision of a freight train with a sand bank. And this Is enough on that BUbJcct. Now for a long pull, a strong pull and a pull altogether In which perfor mance this paper will be on hand to contrlbuto Its mite, as it has evor done. THE COMING CONTE8T. Registration for the coming elec tion has already begun and will bo continued Intermittently until Just be foro tho voting tlmo arrives. If the number registered woro taken ns an Indication of tho political trend, It would not be a very encouraging sit uation, for most of tho registrars on tho opening day Mondny last had llttlo to do, somo nothing nt all. But such a stnto of things Is by no means n criterion, as tho tlmo when regis tration will bo mado effcctlvo Is somo dlstanco ahead, nnd It Is qulto Impos sible to work up much Interest In con tests so remote ns that of Novembor next. Thoso who nro entitled to hnvo their names on tho voting list nnd havo not yet availed themselves of tho prlvllcgo can nnd In nearly every caso will do so boforo tho fate ful tlmo arrives. Tho proportion as to now arrivals hero and thoso in our midst who hnvo Just reachod their majority Is not known, but thero will probably not bo a great deal of differ ence, nnd unless they or much tho greater part of them should go ono way In tho matter of voting n wholly Improbablo proposition tho general result will not bo much changed from what It would hnvo been without them. Both tho great parties hero aro di vided against themselves, tho Repub licans being by far tho grcntcr suffer ers from that condition, and this clr cumstanco sets aside tho means by which computations havo previously been mado. Besides, tho Socialists are a fnctor to bo reckoned with, es pecially If tho trades unions should make common causo with them. In such latter event their vota In this county should bo 5000 and might pos sibly reach C00O, which would likely taVo them from tho foot of tho class nnd mako them nt least third In tho race; and this suggests tho posslbll- HftMttlWMIUMtMMMMtiatltM Ity of tho election being a mixed one. H Well, worse things than that might flj happen. HJ The choice of supreme court Judgo, flj representative to congress and tho flj legislature nro tho only features of flj tho contest in which the stato at largo flj participates, and undoubtedly thcro flj will bo n lively scrlmmago ovor all flj these, with tho chances favoring tho H Republicans, for outside of Salt tako H County tho splitting properalty Is not H engaged in so extensively, In most H counties not at all. Thoy havo near- H ly half tho state scnato to begin with, H and this Is a pretty good start for a H majority of tho legislative body; but H this Is by no medns conclusive. Strange things may happen botween now nnd tho Idea of November. JUDGE BARTCH. On October 1 Chief Justice George W. Uartch will sever his connection with the bench which he has occupied In Uta for fourteen consecutive years, and will return to practlco at tho bar. Ho will havo as a partner ex-Attorney Oeneral Bagloy of Idaho, and tho firm will bo a strong one. In parting company with Judgo Bartch ns an official wo do but voice tho feollngs of nine-tenths of those who know him when wo say that, In tho midst of a more or less tortuous condition of things, his way has been Btralght, his actions regular and his achievements replete with wise and lasting provisions. No moro Incor ruptible, Impartial or Industrious Judgo over occupied the bench any- H where, nnd his depnrturo from It here, n while It will no doubt be a gain to I him, will not bo ono to tho stato. Per- i sonnlly he Is ono of the most un assuming nnd nppronchablo of men; not gifted with much of tho world's goods, his purso has ever been open to tho call of meritorious need, nnd, without being a candldnto or In a po sition whero ho could Justly bo levied 1 upon, has unfailingly responded to , calls for aid by tho Republican party, to which ho has over given an uuself- f Ish allegiance It haa remained for a f. few small souls to placo him In a po- J! sltlon whero ho seemed to bo op posed to a mere faction, but In reality V---- , t I I DEAR READER! ff j H S3 Will You Assist tho Business Men of So.lt LoJcq City in SS J HHI B Z.n r I 1 "Boosting" for A Greater Utah?
