Governor West is proving himself a
thorn in the side of the republicans I
and making for himself a splendid
record The people will appreciate
and Value his vetos His first im
I portant veto was that of the bill to pro
vide for the payment of witnesses and
jurors in which several reps were ap
pointed as court commissioners His
next was the veto of the bill throwing
the territory bank upon the old election
machinery He objected to this be
cause of the deterrent effect it would
have upon statehood the little time
that will elapse before the consumma
tion of this act and the shortcomings
of the old law The message on this
subject stated the case very forcibly
and brought forth from Varian the re
mark Well we cant do anythm
about it
The most important veto however
that has come before the two houpes
is the one the governor sent in yester
day in which he disapproved in very
forcible language of taking of a half
mill from the school tax and putting it
onto the general levy This was the
great republican measure which was
aesiened to cure all the ills that are at
present afflicting the territory It was
opposed in both houses by the demo
1 crats generally on the ground that it
would prove too great an injury to
the public school system if its pro
visions were carried out Notwith
standing this members on the re
publican side who opposed it were
whipped into an acquiescence in its
passage because they were afraid to
raise the taxes and more afraid
to bond They are badly confused
Some want to adjourn without action I
but as they do not wish to add to the
vast amount of democratic campaign
material they have already furnished
they hardly dare There are opposing
ideas as to what will be done That
the governor will allow no tinkering
with the public school system is a
settled thing The plan to shut up the
schools has been abandoned as unten
I able under such circumstances Some
Bay that tha taxes should be raised
others that more bonds should be is
sued The democratE are not be
ing consulted yet it may turn out that
they will hold the balance of power in
both houses on account of rebellion
already loudly thretened on the re
I publican side
The bounty bills and the memorials
inrsiatlon to lead wool and sugar
have not been beard from yet in either
of the houses and the majority of the
I members are feeling a little anxious to
know what will be done with them
There are conflicting rumors as to their
final disposition but none of them
have any foundation Their fate can
be settled only by the message of the
I governor
With the governor and assembly di
vided on some points it is doubtful
I when the last day of the present ses
sion will come to an end

Death In California of a Ian Who VTas
Once a High Roller In Europe
I S Scenti who had made and lost
millions almost in a day was found
dead in his cabin on Alamitos beach
California a few days ago He had
died from pneumonia
Scenti had a checkered career Seven
or eight years ago Paris was the scene
I of a great gambling craze which was
of short duration Scenti who was a
native of Spain and a man 60 years of
age created more excitement in gam
bling circles at the time than did Billy
Hurt During his short stay in Paris ho
managed to make several millions of
dollars through cards and other gam
bling devices known only in Paris and
Monte Carlo He lost his gainings as
easily as he won them
Becoming disgusted with the life he
sailed for New York with quite a snug
sum Several years passed over his head
and he was without anything save the
valuable jewels and trinkets which he
always carried with him Misfortune
having overtaken him as it eventually
does every man of his kind Scenti came
to California When he settled in the
little cabin by the sea he decided to
live and die in obscurity His life as a
hermit did not last long
Scenti avoided meeting people when
ever possible He lived from the sale
of his trinkets and sold them at a great
reductionSan Francisco Examiner

It has como to THE DISPATCH that
readers have misunderstood its court
report with reference to the action of
the grand jury on the Alma Hague
cases Just why this should be is not
clear to the writer These reports have
stated that one indictmentfor embez
zlement has been found against
Hague One casefor making false
entrieshas been ignored and this is
resubmitted Eleven other charges
are also resubmitted
Hague is under 15000 bonds to
await the action of the grand jury on
these charges resubmitted and under
S10000 bonds to appear in the First
District court to plead to the indict
ment charging embezzlement and alleg
ing the sum embezzled to be 20000
He was to appear this morning but
owing to the defendants legislative
duties not being completed arrange
ments were made in Salt Lake with
District Attorney Judd for continu
ance till Friday next at 10 a m at
which time Mr Hague with his counsel
will appear in the First District court
at Provo and enter a plea in all likeli
hood of not guilty to the indictment
charging embezzlement Then of
course will come the delay in getting
out a bill of particulars and the setting
ot the case upon the calendar for trial
As to what will be done with the other
twelve cases pending of course no man
knows nor will any one know until the
grand jury yet to be subpoenaed and

Emperor William Wants the 85000000
Sparkler For His New Crown
I learn from London that the emperor
cf Germany is eager to purchase the
big diamond found at the Jagersfontein
mine in July last This monster gem
turns the scales at 071 carats and there
seems good reason for believing that it
is the very biggest in the world It has
been christened the Jageisfontein Ex
The Jagersfontein mine which is sit
uated about 50 miles from Kimberley
and within the territory of the Orange
Flee State republic is owned by a com
pany many ofthe shareholders of which
reside in England and few of them on
the spot For some time they have sold
the yield of diamonds fy public ten er
in advance The co tractors for the i
purchase of the diamonds in July were
Messrs Wernheim Beit and their
contract expired on the very day thib
famous stone was found Had it been
handed to the manager onlya few hours
later it would have fallen into other
hands I i
The Excelsior was found by a na
tive Basuto laborer named Jonas and
he could easily have secreted it as has
been done in thousands of cases no
doubt because it happened that he was
working at the time at a place where
no diamonds were expected to be found
However he promptly placed it in the
hands of the manager who did not for
a considerable time realize its enormous
value The natives at the mine as an
encouragement to zeal and honesty are
allowed a small commission upon the
diamonds they find and Jonas share
was about eSO This sum to an African
native is quite a small fortune and as
the bonus was supplemented by the gift
of a horse saddle and bridle the Basuto
left for his home a very proud man
On the spot the diamond was valued
by the official government inspector at
25000 but when it reached Kimber
ley n bid of 250000 was made for it
The offer was declined and the Ex
celsior was shipped to Europe It was
i a curious sight to feoe 1lIe parcel guard
ed to the Cape Town docks by a squad
of cavalry and a detachment of police
It reached England safely and imme
diately the value went up until now the
owners decline to part with it for less
than e1 1000000 It has been lodged in
the Bank of England for security and
at the present time negotiations are pro
ceeding for purchase on behalf of the
German emperor who is having a new
orown constructed and has an idea ap
parently that this particular gem will
add luster to the diadem He is not
however the only bidder in the market
and it Is quite uncertain what will be

It Has Been Found That Pollution In TbU
Stream Increased the Death Bate
The city of Lawrence Mass is ex
perimenting with a filter bed with
which it hopes to purify the water of
the Merrimac river the source of the
water supply of that city The sum of
60000 already has been expended for
the purpose The experiment is being
made in pursuance of the discovery
made two years ago by the state board
of health of Massachusetts that certain
cities which had suffered especially
from typhoid fever were using water
from polluted rivers The board gave
assurance that by the use of filter beds
98 per cent of the bacteria organisms
some of which are harmful would be
The filtering was begun Sept 20
I since which time daily investigation
shows that this proportion of the bac
teria is removed from the water and
also that the water is so purified that
threefourths of the remaining 2 per
cent die before the water reaches the
dwelling houses The fact that the
number of deaths from typhoid fever in
that city during the months of October
and November of last year was qnly
one each month while formerly the av
erage for five years was five each month I
seems to furnish conclusive evidence
that there is a virtue in the plan rec
ommended by the Massachusetts board
