Mail closes iroing east at 11 a. m. A. New Revelation. Williani " Jennings some little time ago, was understood to tell the priesthood of the Mormon Church in council, regarding the presure being brought to bear upon the polygamous doctrine and practice of the church, that in his judge ment, one of three courses must be pursued in order to save Mormon ism as an institution from ruin. It was that the church must emigrate to some country where polygamy could be practiced without interfer ence ; must obey the laws, or whip the government of the United Stat es. It required no philosopher or statesman to see that, and under stand it. John Taylor and all the old heads of the church realized it. and since the declaration in Presi dent Cleveland's inaugural, that "polygamy shall be suppressed," they have lost all hope of hoodwin king the new administration by airy olfVinethods, into lettir rtlone.v TlrcsiiTcrra'aeisabilil letting them asja'aej-jaaiiity- 01 negira to some foreign lanu, anc the discovery of that promisd land wherein the laws and public senti ment would, tolerate mormomsm with polygamy, is apparent at sin gle glance. No where under the sun can the two stand together, short of a conquest of some coun try by force of arms. Turkey might recieve the Mor mons with their polygamy, but not their religion. They would have to become Mohammedans there Any christian country in the world would offer them shelter without their polygamy : no . government would receive them and tolerate their usurpation of political power, either as a church or a community and no one knows these facts bet ter than the Mormon leaders them selves, They know that the United States affords more liberty under tne law than .any government on God's footstool. A wholesale emi gration therefore would not be prac ticable or desirable. The talk about whipping the United States Gov ernmedt, they all know to be mere childishness. The Government has set its strong arm to enforce the laws here in Utah, Arizona and Idaho. They know there is course left open to them but to submit, after perhaps many religio-political somersaults, much trifling and ma ny exhibitions of bad faith, but ul timately and finally to submit to the laws and take their hands from the throat of the state. Delays and dela3Ts have sufficed them in the past. They are now in the pres ence of their greatest difficulty. They are face to face with the in evitable, but their superabundant faculty for cunning and trickery may enable them to dodge once more, only to meet with more de termination and less mercy in the next round. Something must be done. The course has been decid ed upon, as John Taylor, George Q. Cannon, the Twelve Apostles, Feramorz Little, Bishop Clawson, John T. Cain,Bishop Sharp, and William Jennings, all probably full well know. It is, that, at the com ing conference, if one can be together long enough and with a sufficient number of the leaders present, a proclamation shall be is sued from John Taylor as President of the Mormon Church, its prophet seer and-reveiator, commanding all Mormons to give up the practice of polygamy and come back within the laws. In truth and fact, to do that which this journal has been urging them to do for years. But how to do it is the difficulty. That the Government would grant a gen eral amnesty, there is little doubt ; provided something more substan tial than the mere word of these life long tricksters could be offered as a pledge of good faith that ' the laws-in the future would be strictly obeyed. Temples have, been and are being erected all over this Ter ritory, in which to solemnize in profound secrecy their unlawful marriages. While they stand they stand they are a contradiction to any light or wordly pledges which Mr. Taylor and his partners could give. Their word may be good as coin with Benedict, Hall & Co., or Claflin in New York for Merchan dise, but their bond- in any sum thrice secured by gold bullion in the United States Treasury, would not be a pledge sufficient to guar rantee their good faith. Some of their chief men are un der indicment for violations of the Edmunds' law : many more ought to be. These men could make the pledge good during their natural lives by entering into a compro mise with the Government to plead guilty and have sentence suspended during such time as the pledge to cease the practice of polygamy should be faithfully carried out. In no other wray could the faith of these men be sufficiently plighted. Anything short of that would proove a delusion and a snare on the first change of public officials in Utah. In the mean time -the authorities of Arizona are under stood to have been approached in this matter by two missionaries of the Mormon Church, with the as surance that the proclamation abol ishing polygamy was to be made in a short time by the xrophet, but whether any compromise was effect ed in that Territory or not, has not been learned. But compromise or no compromise, the church is to- dar in that condition where it has got to take the step of giving up its pet institution, and within the next few weeks, if our reliability we think it does, from every pulpit in every-ward in Zion, the bishop will formerly announce the fact. Then many old wives who have borne cros"s of thorns will be made glad and young wives who have lived in lawful wedlock under the shadow of a terrible fear, will emerge into the sunlight and gaze out uponihe cloudless horizons of their future to thank God. A Simple Gold Test. Foi testing gold, make a liquid consisting of nitric acid one ounce, water two drams and muriatic acid one-half scruple. Mix the ingredi ents well, and keep the solution in a bottle with a glass, stopper. With a glass rod which has been dipped in the mixture touch the metal and watch the action. If no effect is produced on the metal it is either gold or gold plated. . If the gold is very low or jess man nine Karai, the acid will boil green, and metal is at once detected by the mark left by the acid To test silver, apply a drop of a solution of nitric acid three ounces, water one ounce and bichromate of potash one-half ounce, and wipe off the drop imme diately with a sponge and water. If a blood red mark results, the metal is silver or the article is sil ver plated. -Ex. Water for Blasting: Purposes. The use of water in connection with blasting in mines and quarries is rapfdly extendiiig in-this comitiy.j and in Europe, A tube filled with waters is inserted in the bore hole next the powder cartridge, the tube being of tliin plate or even of paper. The usual tamping follows, and when the explosion occurs the tube containing the water is burst, the explosive violence is increased by the presence of the water and ex tended over the enlarged interior area of the bore 'hole, due to the space occupied by the water tube. A much larger quantity of the ma terial to be mined or quarried is thereby brought down or loosened with a smaller quantity of explosive used, while the heat of the explo sion converts a portion of the water into steam, which, with the remain ing water, extinguishes the flame and absorbes and neutralizes the gases and smoke generated. According to the reading of the recently passed fee bill, the record er is instructed to keep "office hours," the sheriff "business hours" and the county treasurer to keep his office open from 10 a. m. to 4 p. m.
