Governor Cutler's message to tho legislature was a carefully worded, conservative and ablo document. It showed great care and thought and familiarity with tho affairs of tho stato. It was more lengthy than such docu ments generally aro, but all tho points touched on aro of interest to tho peo ple. Tho messago Is well worth read ing and studying. Tho recommenda tions generally aro wise and evidently havo been well weighed and consid ered. Truth, howovor, is not altogether in accord with tho portion of tho mes sago referring to appointive ofllcors and stato boards. It has been rumored for some time that a moasurc would bo Introduced in tho legislature put ting tho present non-partisan or bi partisan boards on a partisan basis. Tho legislation of tho country for many years has been diametrically op posite to tho views expressed by Gov ernor Cutler in that regard. Tho gov ernment is constantly enlarging tho scopo of tho civil service, while in all positions, tho duties of which aro dis charged by moro thnn ono man, it has becomo tho rulo to havo the timo of scrvico alternate, that there may bo somo ono experienced holding over. Tho reasoning of tho governor that all ofllces should oxplro with tho gov ernor is, wo think, faulty. It is against all tho progressive legislation of tho present time. Wo regret this recom mendation, because of tho additional club it places in tho hands of tho ene mies of Senator Smoot and Utah. The Trlbuno has openly asserted that thoso who dared to favor Governor Wells would bo under tho ban of the pres ent stato administration and its ad visers. This recommendation of the governor simply gives tho Trlbuno and its gang an opportunity to say "Wo told you so," and further push tho Koarns "American" parly. No comfort should bo given to that party. Wo aro further of tho opinion that tho minority party should bo repre sented on hoards, and while tho gov ernor says ho is not adverse to it, tho tono' of tho recommendation leads to tho belief that that is not tho inten tion. Let us havo a united party and a united stato. Wo havo a hard light on. Lot us liopo that Governor Cutler will not furnish ammunition to his onomlos. It must not bo forgotten that 40 per cent of tho Republican parly bollovod in Governor Wolls when ho said that Kearns did not control him. Wo sincerely liopo that Gov ernor Cutler will woik to got both fac tions of his party together. o SUTHERLAND'S TRIUMPH COM PLETE. In tho caucus of tho C7 Ropubllcan members of tho legislature on Wed nesday tho voto for George Suther land for United States senator was unanimous. His was tho only name presented. Judge Bartch end William Glasmann both withdrew before tho caucus mot for the reason that neith er could got anyono to nominate thorn. Next Tuesday tho voting will tako place in tin senate nnd houso separately and the following day tho action will bo ratified In joint ses sion. Mr. Sutherland will of courso recolvo tho entlro Republican voto as ho did In tho caucus, and will bo duly declared elected as United States sen ator for Utah. Under ordinary cir cumstances this would bo a great honor for any man, and In this In stance it is not only a great honor, but a great triumph. Moro than two years ago Mr. Sutherland began- tho light on tho corrupt Kearns machine which was then dominating tho poli tics of Utah and against tho great powor of unlimited money and whol ly unscrupulous methods ho waged tho battlo on honorable, straightforward linos. It was a contest of brains and right against money, corruption and unbounded stupidity. Senator Kearns and his crowd had recourse to tho SBgggBliijajijajilgIKagBflH most dlsplcablo means to retain Kearns In the senate. The most scur rilous attacks lmaglnablo wore made by Kearns and his three dally papers on Mr. Sutherland and his friends, who In tho way of press representa tion had nothing but this paper on their side. It was a strugglo against fearful odds, but for once right tri umphed with and for tho people of tho state. It is a proud moment for Mr. Sutherland, such a triumph as is given to but few to enjoy. But what of Senator Kearns and his co horts? They go down to defeat cov ered with Ignominy and. contempt. Their light was waged In dishonor, chicanery, fraud and brutality. When ono makes a straightforward, honest, honorablo fight and loses he goes down with the respect of tho people and of his opponents, but Sonator Kearns' sun has sot in dishonor and amid tho contempt of almost every decent man in tho stato and a great many in other states. For Mr. Suth erland tho triumph is honorablo and complete. Mr. Sutherland will bo an Ideal sen ator. He ls a man of education, cul turo and honor. A lawyer of unusual ability and made a most enviable rec ord during tho two years ho was in congress. He stands well with tho big men of both parties at the national capital and while ono of tho youngest men in tho senate will be a credit, not only to his own state, but to the nation. Tho legislature ls to bo con gratulated on tho wisdom of Its selec tion and tho people of Utah In having fo desirable and ablo a representative in tho senate. Oddity of the Congo Valley. A peculiarity of the southern part of tho Congo valley Is that ono sldo of the hills is usually bare, tho other covered with thick vegetation. This difference ls duo to tho fact that ono sldo gets little molsturo while tho other is dampened by fogs blown agalnt it every morning. Tho natives often shave off tho hair from ono sldo of their heads, tho effect presenting the same appearance as tho hills of tho country. Letter Written a Century Ago. Whilo looking over a package of wasto paper a fow days ago, John Mc Gulgan of Ansonia, Conn., found an old letter which is quite a curiosity. It was written In 1S05, but Is as leg! bio now a3 tho day it was written. It was addressed to Dr. Eneas Monson, Jr., Now Haven, and was sont from Springfield, bearing tho Initials "M, S." as tho only signature. An East Side View of the Sun. In tho courso of her experience aa a teacher on the East Side Myra Kelley once received tho following composition from an 8-year-old child upon tho comparative Importanco of tho sun nnd moon: "Tho moon is of great use, for it lights up tho dark nights, but tho sun ls not much use, for tho days aro always light any. way." New York Press. Right, Yet Wrong. "On tho ono hand," said tho teach er, pointing a long finger at the map on the blackboard, "Is tho sceno of tho present complications in Russia; on tho other hand " Hero ho paused and looked sternly at a shock headed boy. "On tho other hand " "Warts," hazarded tho shock-headed boy, helpless with terror. Big Income From Spirits. Tho not pi out fiom tho Russion gov ernment monopoly in tho sale of spirits last year exceeded 40,000,000.
