interest to the Mormon Church in the suit of tho Church of Latter day Saints against the United States which comes hero by appeal from the decision of the Supreme Court of Utah in favor of the United States This court affirms that judgment Tho case grows out of the TuckerEdmunds law which dissolved the Mormon Church corporation and escheated to the United States the real estateowned by the Church Tho Mormons entered suit tohave the law declared unconstitutional on the ground that Congress by dissolution assumed judi cial power and that the act of the Legisla tive Assembly of Utah incorporating tho Church constituted a contract which could not be impaired by Congress under author ity to repeal Territorial enactments that the doctrine of escheat was alien to tho spirit of free institutions On the part of the United States it was contended that Congress had authority to repeal all Terri torial enactments chat the act incorporat ing the Church was invalid as an attempt to establish a religion contrary to the pro visions of the Constitution that the charter should be annulled for abuse of granted rights as when the church corporation was dissolved there was no one to whom to turn over the property and it was properly es cheated to the United States In its opinion the Court says the dis tinguishing feature of Mormonisin is well known to bo polygamy and absolute eccle siastical control over its church members Notwithstanding all efforts to suppress the barbarous practice of polygamy the sect perseveres in defiance of law in propagating and promoting this nefarious doctrine The question therefore is whether the promo tion of such unlawful system repugnant to our laws is to be allowed to continue and whether the enormous funds which Jiave been accumulated be wielded for the propa gation of an obnoxious practice and for the promotion of an organized rebellion against tho laws of the United States The history of the governments dealings with the Mormons is one of patience OH the part of the American government and re sistance to law and pitiless atrocities on the part of the Mormons The contention that polygamy is a part of the Mormons religious belief is a sophistical plea No doubt the thugs of India imagined their belief in as sassination was a religious belief but that did not make if so Society has a perfect right to prohibit ollcnses against enlightened mankind After an elaborate historical review of the common law tho Court had a contumacious organization wielding by its resources immense power in tho Territory of Utah and em ploying those resources in constantly attempting to oppose subvert and thwart of Congress and the will of ofthe United States Under we have no doubt of Congress to do as it did Tho d eer of the lower court is affirmed VPustice Brad ley delivered the opinion Chfef Justice Fuller said that he ahd Jus tices1 Lamar were constrained to Congress unquestionably has power to suppress polygamy and it is im

INTERNATIONAL RAILWAY The President has sent to the Senate a letter of the Secretary of State submitting a plan for tho preliminary survey for a rail way line to connect the principal cities of the
