The political prognosticators have

it is not looked for.
Let us all start the New Year with
a determination to win first place

the State. It can be done with a

RUSSIA'S OBJECT LESSON.
The object !esson presented by the
generous offer of Russia to furnish
money to the United States must not
be lost. It is a grand manifestation
of the continued friendship of the
only great power of the world which
has at all times and under all circumn
stances extended aid and comfort to
the people of the United States. Such
-a generous offer at tbis time, when
the United States is groaning under
the British yoke of financial bondage,
must be appreciated. But the ques
~- How is it that the great
republic w few years ago was
paying its war de1.:(jh marvelous
rapidity, arid whose credit stood first
of all the nations of the earth, should
now be an object of sympathy or
charity on account of our failing
credit and growing poverty ? Fifteen
years ago the credit and financial
standing of our great European and
Siberian friend could not have been
compared with ours. What has
made this great and marvelous
change? There is but on~e answer:
Russia has enjoyed financial inde
pendence, while the United States
has been governed by an English
gold syndicate. The silver rouble
is the unit of account in Russia. The
circulation in that country is paper,
and good legal tender money is is
sued in sufficient quantity to keep it
on a parity with silver bullion at a
ratio of 15 1-2 to 1 between the two
metals. The difference of exchange
between the mo. ey in actual circu
lation in Russia and the gold stan
dard countries has been the same as
the difference of exchange between
India and the far East, and Paris and
The Russia farmer has sent his
bushel of wheat to Liverpool and re
ceived an ounce of silver therefor,
which in his own country was worth
at least $1.30. The American farmer
snends his bushel of wheat to the
same market and receives an ounce
of silver therefor, which in his owD
country is worth only tifty cents.
This same principle operates for the
benefit of all exports of Russi and
~operates as a tax or .tariff npwe
importdinto that country. Previous
to the demonitization of silver, whieb
created this difference of exchange,
the production of wheat and cotton
in the Orient, in competition with
the United States was unheard of,
and Russia was a feeble rival of the
pnited States in supplying Europe
with farm products. But the differ
ence of exchange has made Russia
great. It has stimulated her exports,
retarded imports, and enabled her
to accumulate vast hoards of gold,
while the gold standard has impov
erished the great republic, compelled
her farmers and planters to sell at
ruinous gold prices in competition
with Russia and Asia, who are abun
dantly aspplied with good money.
In Russia and Asia a stability of
prices stimulates indus'tryv and accu
mulates wealth. In the United States
falling prices paralyze industry and
increases the poverty of the people.
In a few sboit years America has be.
come a financial pauper, dependent
upon the tender mercies of the Shv
locks of London, while Russia has1
grown rich and powerful by the sim
ple process of furnishing her people
with honest money.
If Mr. Cleveland was not protected
b~y a dullness of sensibility and a
heartless disregard for the American
people, which puts to shame the
hardihood of Nero fiddlirg while
Rome was burning, the fact that he
is pauperizing his country, and mak
ing it an object of charity by depriv
ing the people of money would make
him cry out for the rocks and moun
tains to fall upon him and hide him
from the view of man. We rejoice
that the American people now have
an opportunity to compare what hon
est money maintaining stability of
prices has done for Russia, and what
dishonest money, creating falling
prices and hard times, has done for
the United States, and see whether,
as contended by Mr. Cleveland, their
patriotism will be improved by con
traction, more stagnation, more pov
erty and want, as suggested by the
autocrat of the White House. The
audacity of a President who can ask
his people to submit to extortion, to
starvation, to misery and want, for
the sake of being inspired with that
patriotism which seeks decay, with
that enthusiasm which seeks despair,
while their tormentors in London,
New York, and Washington, revel in
untold millions of ill-gotten wealth,
may find a parallel; but a parallel
will only be possible when Satan de
ses some new scheme not yet re
vealed to exhibit a degree of impu
dence and contempt for the human
race which was unknown when Mil

Open your eyes, look around you and

won't humble myself at their feet, alike a
timid slave!" Had not the worst element
of our country got into national power,
through showers of rotten eggs and other
like merited indignities. we would have
had a peaceful, quiet people to-day. The
fanatics who have been picking at t,.e
Southern people for the entire term of their
damnable existence, have not only broke
up the old Whig party, but have even suc
ceeded in debauching the Democracy of New
York State, by blacking the face of her
once fair and spotless Judiciary. Even

their public halls? Did he nuit rebuke thenm
thus: "You don't hiss ne, but you hiss the
constitution of your fathers." Yes. and
they have been all their lives hissing our
national constitution; an-d they will do so,
to the end of their fretful days.
Did not Mr. Tombs denouace them both
before and after our late war, in niuch
more bitter w.,rds, than did either Gov.
Evatns or Senator Tillnan? Did he not
hurl the most scatbing and well.nierited
anathemas at thern in Atlanta since "the
war between the States? Did not George
McDuffie. (Georgia's greatest Statesman
and South Carolina's :t'opt-d son) del
nounce upon the fi ,or of the Unit.-l .st:itts

timely and eloquent words: '*When I hear
a Northern man crying out the glorions
Union,methinksI he-ir the bugI t-b!astof the
robber-band; and when I hear a Southern
man crying out the glorions Union, me
thinks I snuff treason in the tainted
breeze!" Did not Calhoun, Hayne and
other great statestUan of our country, tell
them of their meaness and want of na
tional faith? What good did it do? Why
they only went on at the same rate, until
they plunged this beautif ul land of ours,
into the war which we have just passed
through. Did they not prohibit the great
Webster from speaking in one of their
national halls, jnst bec.ise he would not
allow them to think for him? Did they
not deliberately endeavor, to stir up in
surrections before "the war between the
States," throughout the whole South? Are
they not clapping their hand's for joy a'
this time; at the prospect of our cotton fac
tories demanding a protective tariff.
Because Senator Tillman happens to see
such an evil ahead of the South, and calls
halt upon Northern capitalists and cheap
labor coming down here, the Atlanta
-Journal takes it upon itself, to insult South
Carolina, through her Governor and most
gifted Senator. A little one-horse North
ern newspap.r (The New York Advertiser)
last year persecuted the Atlanta Journal
thus: "Poblic sentimerit all over the State
is strongly against the revolutionary policy
of the G.vernor. One day of General
JAckson in the White House would bring
this latter (lay Calhuunist, without Cal
honn's mind, promptly into line." Don't
you see, that both of these newspapers aim
their darts at the bosom of South Carolina.
rather than at Senator Tillman? While the
Northern laper would insult our State by
eqruparing Calhoun and Tillman nnfavor
ably as to patriotism, the Georgia paper
woul.l do the same, by uncomplimentary
allusions to both Gov. Evans and Senator
Tillman. The Atlanta Journal's coarse
allusions to our Governor borrowing from
Senator 'iilman a speech, is a piece of
disgracefol spite, unworthy of the pen of
any edi:or in the great and patriotic State
of Georgia. As the latter part of my edu
cation was receive,1 at Emory College, I
happen to know sometning of the people
of Georgia. I am sure they do not indorse
the sentirnents of tlie Atlanta Journal. The
Governor and Senat -r of Sonth Carolina
were guests of Georgia, and should n< t
have been (even as individuals) thus so
unnecessarily and ur'justly insulted, just
for the purpose it wonld seem, of guning
the favor of the worst enemies of the whole
South. When a man does a wrong, and
falls out with one who tells him of it, he is
the real s'ibje-ct of his own wrath. I would
advise every citizen to hold on to correct
principles, and at the same time, to always
be ready to fight for the United States
against "the world in arms."

LoNDos, Jan. 7.-Delayed dispatches
from Johannesburg are arriving here.
They show that on Tuesday last there
was intense excitement there, the peo
ple hurrying into the t'own from the
mines and outlying country.
The central committeemen constitu
ted themselves a provisional govern
ment for the town, and announced that
ample provision would be made to de
fend it against any body of Boers.
The provisional government was es
tablished in the Consolidated gold fields
building and three Maxim guns were
placed in advantageous positions about
it. The new government then sent an
ultimatum to the government of Presi
dent Kruger, who proposed a conference
at Pretoria on the following day,
Wednesday; the committee hesitated tro
go to Pretoria without a safe conduct.
Dr. Jameson, at that time, was hour
ly expected at Johannesburg. Crowds
of people surrounded the Consolidated
gold fields building, and the work of re
oruiting was in full swing.
N umbers of people left the town
during the night in bands of 50 each.
Later the committee sent the follow
ing to Sir Hercules Robinson, the gov
ernor of Cape Colony:
"We have absolute information that
a large body of Boers has been com
manded to immediately attack Johan

CAPE TowN, Jan. 7.-It is learned
that after last Wednesday's fight, Dr.
Jameson's column, originally about 700
men, moved southward, fighting hard
all the way through the night and
eventually reached Vlakvonteil, about
six miles from Johannesburg, on Thurs
day morning, when the column was
completely surrounded by a force of
4,800 Boers. In spite of this, Dr. Jam
eson's followers fought stubbornly until
noon, when all their cartridges were
exhausted. In addition, they had not
tasted food for 24 hours, and were worn
out with fatigue. But the white flag
was not hoisted by Dr. Janeson's orders.

SALT LAKE CITY, Jan. 7.-Another
state has been added to the Union and
the rights of self government have been
extended to 250.000 industrious, law:
abiding and intelligent people.
The oath of office was administered to
the state officials of Utah at noon, and
a new state, with her vast resources,
started off with the promise of a bright
and glorious future.
The city was crowded with people
from all parts of the state. Acting
Governor Richards had, by proclama
tion, declared the day a holiday. All
business was suspended and the build
ings along the principal streets were
decorated with the national colors.
The day was ushered in by the ring
ing of bells and sounding of all the
steam whistles in the city.
At 11 o'clock the street parade, under
the direction of Grand Marshal Burton,
moved from the corner of Main and
Third streets. The parade included
General Penrose and staff, federal
troops and the National guard of Utah,
members of the legislature, civic socie
ties and citizens.
While the parade was taking place
the artillery on Arsenal Hill was firing
a salute of 45 guns. Acting Governor
Richards, as master of ceremonies,
called the h, use to order and prayer was
offered by Wilfred Woodruff, president
of the Mormon church. He prayed for
the welfare of the nation, to which
Utah will ever be loyal, and for the
prevalence of justice, mercy, truth and
peace, so that every soul might be free
to worship as he sees fit.
The "Star Spangled Banner" was
rendered by a chorus of 1,000 voices.
After this, the proclamation of the pres
ident of the United States granting
statehood to Utah was read by ex-Dele
gate Joseph T. Rawlings.
The oath of office was administered
to the governor and state officers by
Chief Justice Zane of the supreme court
of the state. Governor Wells then de
livered his inaugural address.
The Governor's Inaugural Address.
"Let us congratulate," said he, "the
pioneers-that heroic band of patriots
who blazed a way~ for western civiliza
tion-who turned the waters upon the
burning soil and wrung from desolation
the bounteous harvests which we are
reaping-who planted the stars and
stripes on yonder peak, and in the namo
of freedom began the work which we
are consummating now.
"As to those of us who. followed in
their wake, whether we came to Utah
in the slow moving prairie schooner of
frontier days or in the lightning ex
press train of more recent years. or
whether born upon the soil, let us clasp
hands upon this natal day and congrat

tion of all past contentions and our suc
cession to the full rights and privileges
of citizenship in a free and sovereigni
state of the grandest republic the world
has ever see't.
"And while felicitating ourselves and
our state upon h er admission into the
Union, let us not omit to congratulate
the Union upon the acquisition of an
other commonwealth of magnificent
proportions and superb possibilities.
"If I were asked to enumerate in
more specific terms the riches that
Utah affords the country as recompense
for her statehood, I would say she offers
the gold and silver, lead and copper and
iron of her mountains, the luxurious
soil of her valleys, the matchless life
saving climate, a most efficient public
school sstem and the gratitude of a

The governor then reviewed in detail
the many efforts made by Utah to se
cure statehood from 1847 to the present
day. Continuing, he said:

The governor then gave an exhaust

Will Be Requested-Disadvantage of the
CECAGO, Jan. 7. - The interest of
American millers is centered in the next
meeting of the executive committee of
the National Millers' Trade association,
to be held here about Jan. 27. Millers
generally have practically decided upon
a persistent agitation for reciprocity
with South American countries and will
make a determined effort for the repeal
of that portion of the tariff law which
they think conflicts with the flour in
terests of the United States.
B. A. Eckhart, a pr minent member
of the associasion, says the prospect of
the Cubans gaining their independence
will have a tendency to promote com
mercial relations between the new re
public and this country. "The present
rohibitive tariff between America and
South American countries," he added,
"should be removed; but we realize
that an amendment to the Wilson law
to obtain this desired relief would not
be necessarily granted for one commod
ity. Others doubtless will be included.
"The idea is to continue agitating un
til the result is attained. Millers do not
anticipate any relief from the present
congress, as the president would veto
any such bill. As long as the present
tariff is in effect it means a decrease of
4,000,000 barrels of flour annually in the
export and the loss of $10,000,000 per
year to American millers, compared to
the benefits by reciprocity through the
