We understand this method Bas been tried in Utah and found to be most advantageous in every way* It is cheaper and the work is more elective than by any, other means. Thus does all the property in the county bear an equal burden of the cost of the poison, and the farmers,, who are directly concerned, be given a chance to rid their farms of these pests. The Examiner believes this m a most effective method and we would like to see it given a trial early this spring. The work done in early spring is what counts.. . Certain it is that some scheme must be devised to abate these de structive animal's, and as everything else has been tried, the Examiner hopes the commissioners will give this scheme a chance. SAME OLD LIES. Speaking of Towhe's great speech • m the senate the other day the Salt Lake Tribune says* One trihe in the Philippines made war upon our flag and planned the killing of our soldiers. Its power is broken, only some wandering murder ers of that tribe are still scouting about plundering the people and, when pos sible, kilting our soldiers, but they do uot much count. That shows that, even in face of direct contradictory evidence, the Tribune oan lie with as much ease as was reputed to Annanias, Right now the war department asking congress for authority send and keep 100,000 men in the Philippines until order is restored. The department says this number ot men is "absolutely necessary." If there were only a few bands of "roving murderers" would it quire so*many soldiers? Noutatter how few there are, they seem to "count much," if all these ti are needed. It isn't so long agj> that the Trib une was saying that, "ouly a rew banda of outlaws remained in tHtt islands," yet within.the past month 30,000 or 40,000 hâve come in »ad sworn allegiance to the Stars and Strip«,.

Taken altogether tfte Philippine business is a costly and un American mess, and Town© showed the mat up fn fts truej light. It waish a* fitting finale to his senatorial career. HO W CHùi NJUrÆD:. The Salt Lake Tribune* guyed the democrats-ofi Utah when, not long ago, they proposed to disband on. account of church influence. Now the Tribune says that this is possibly the best course. Speaking of the expenditure oi money and work-.abwig political lines, it says: If all the money is to be wasted and; all the work is to be useless, if ©ne mercenary old man can work upon the superstitious fears of a people, control ling their reason,,their best judgment; their" individuality, and yofce them in herds like cattle, is it not fair to serve a. notice fco that effect upon the state, and stop the useless work and expenditure of money? Its coming to be a mooted question if the Tribune, or any of its readers know just where it is*at-..
