The ArCMW, the Jlonno-i organ, in a leader yes- terday, says: "T. he President's message will bo hulled by ihc hireling clergy with pleas- ure and receive a certain amount of popular support. It is not shown in what way destruction to our local govern men t would affect the question of polygamy. The plural marriages of the Mormons not recognized by territorial laws eoultl not be dissolved by commissions, 'edict, ar- mies. or other earthly powers. They are ecclesiastical, perpetual, eternal, until the Mormons become recreant to tlieir fnlth with high heaven. Those unions will be recognized by the AJmightly Being who es- tablished them, for the benefit of his jwoplft's fullness imd his glory. The Prcsidtiiit's remarks on Utah polyg-.iiay do not add force to his ntessngc to his statesmanship. They are sap to bigots and breath to the name of pop- ular passion. It is doubtful if they will have a practical bearing on Congress. They will certainly create no commotion among the Cod-fearing people of Utah." BURIED ALIVE.
