a priest came to this city He tried to get five and ton cents iu different places Jfc was easy to see in a moments con versation with him that his mind was shattered A reporter gave an account of him and what ho had done in ono place and what tho good sisters of Holy Cross thought of him At once this poor creature found a mem ber of tho legal profession to espouse his cause and to prepare papers in a libel suit against TIIK TUIHUNE claiming damages to the amount of Whether this attorney advanced tho clerks fees or not we do not know A day later tho poor lunatic not the taken into custody preliminary to being returned to tho asylum from which ho had escaped Wo mention tho fact merely to show that however much a learned attorney may his dignity ho never permits it to interfere with his chivalric generosity toward an unfortunate client Two days ago TJIB TRTJHHTB learned thot there was a shortage in the Kecord crs ofiicc In this city that Uio Finance Committee of the Council were secretly investigating tho trouble and stating that fact we called to have tho investi gation public Thoro was no malice in the business In doing what it did THE TIHRUNE simply did it as an honest newspaper It sot tho Herald going That beautiful sheet with flaring head lines devotes a column and a half to tho business when In a column and a half it does not state any more than TnruLXE did in a dozen lines Editori ally the skulking knave who presides over that department says Softly neighbour you must have known the fact for weeks why did you it THE TKUJCNE is not in tho habit of suppressing facts that ought to bo made public Cannot the Heraldic how badly it is giving its own self away when it says that Tuic TKIBUXK must have known something for wooks that tbo Herald never dropped upon it until THE TKTISUNK gave it It blames THK TKJKUNK for riot stating the guilty par ties If any there wore Wo did not state them because we did not know but tho Herald in its anxiety to make a case against Judwo POWKKS casts direct sus picion upon some one whom tho Herald does not know Is guilty at all Wo stated what wo knew tho Herald says out of revenge liad wo rnado no state ment thon it would have charged that wo were trying to cover up Liberal wrongdoing If there over was a cow ardly newspaper a newspaper with a forehead of a wolf and the heart of a sheep that newspaper is the Salt Lake Herald Now York Herald nominates A PAXA to be EvAivras suc cessor in the Senate It is hard to un derstand tho object of tho Herald in making such a nomination Indirectly it is a snub to oxPresident by tlio Herald because if there are two moii on the earth who particularly hate each other those two men are CnAitLKS A DANA and GKOVICK CIKVELAXIX Tho election of Mr DANA to tho Senate by tho Legislature of New York oxPresi dent CLEVELAND would consider not only a personal blow but a personal offense As wo construe tho Hwtld it means that it is getting ready to support Governor nomination in 1302 Wo can put no other moaning upon It It is unnecessary to say that wo think Mr DANA would not make a conspicuous Senator of tho United States lie Is tho most terse and in some respects most powerful newspaper man in America Tho corporation is so wealthy that ho can afford to have tho Suns editorial mat tor written over four or live times until every weak or unnecessary word has been eliminated and hence tho editorials are models of editorial terseness and power At the same time of all tho vin dictive men in tho Union CKAELES A DANA is tho chief ho respects neither age nor condition lie wanted an oflice from President GRANT GRANT declined to givo it to him he was not contented to pursue GKANT through his whole life but followed him beyond tho fold ing doors of death and tried to cast dis honor on his honored grave We do not believe that such a man can over make a mark as a Senator of tho United States Wo do not believe tho Herald desires his nomination or expects him to bo elected wo think it would be a mis fortune for tho great Empire Stato to have such a man Senator It would bo a bad example to the young men of New elect such a man as Senator We boliovotho Herald takes tho same view even while it nominates him and it wants the nomination made simply to snub else This saino Infamous shook says Tnic TKIKTJXJC ondorscis Judge ANDKKSONS doclsioii and rofors to Itaa though it was a recent matter Wo endorsed tho de cision whon it was delivered first a yoar ago wo dovotcd HVB columns of spaco to it then whoro wo havo ono of lato havo bcon asking for such a decision for many years bufc not on tho ground that tho Herald states at all It says Tho decision was framed on tho ground that Mormons cannot bocomo citizens be some of their frlonds onco prac ticed polygamy and wore punished for doing That Is not tho ground of Judge AN DErtsoxs decision His decision is that thoy arc not entitled to be naturalized bacauso thoy never can bocomo good cit izoua in fact that thoy are bound by obligations which thoy cannot resist their allegiance is given to another power Tho Herald says Ho neg lected to state that tho only way in which a Mormon is bound is through his own un restricted choice and that ho is always at perfect liberty to free himself without lot or So havo boon tho 800 men who have served out thoir sen tences in tho penitentiary All thoy had to do in order to avoid going there was to state before tho Court that henceforth thoy would obey the laws of tho United States Jiufc thoy could not do It With out lot or hindrance is good But whon a poor creature is in this creed when Ins living and tho living of his lainily depends upon Mormon patronage when all his associations are Mormons whon ho has no othor country and above all when his soul is involved with pledges which ho dare not break it is all well enough to talk about his doing without lot or but ho can not That makes tho cruelty of those priests that hold that kind of club over the heads of their people all tho more infamous thoir trying to maintain polit ical power by falsehood their trying to hold out to this country something which thoy know Is not true thoir in structing their press to do tho same thing And whon a few hero know exactly tho inside facts and expose them then tho whole bundle of serpents are sot hissing Lot President WOODKUFF do by Church and Stato as ho lias done by polygamy lot him suspend tho old rule if ho pleases lot him do it in a straightforward manner lot him tell tho Peoples party to dissolve let him instruct his people to join tho National parties of tho country and discuss Na tional politics and vote as they please and tho Mormon question will bo over and there will be no occasion for such a decision as that of Judge ANDERSONS This same infamous paper says Many Liberals are oathbound mcru bors of secret Suppose thoy arc that does not go to tho integrity of the Government of tho United States that does not put a chain on any mans soul and keep him from being a true If there wore any societies with a mission to overthrow tho Govern ment of tlio Uuitod States if their oaths wont to tjUat end and if thoy taught tho country They never folly ex pressed tho idea but it means this When silver was demonetized while it brought no immediate contraction of tho currency of the United States it cast direct dishonor on half tho money of the world silver began to fall in value tho product of farmers began to fall in tho same ratio The legislation could dishonor silver but it could not take from it 0110 jot of its purchasing power Then began a change in the money circulation of this country while before it was in general circulation with this fall in prices it began to gravi tate entirely to tho creditor class Tho result In a little while was that that class had any amount of money to loan at low rates while the farmers had none and what was worse they had no security with which to borrow and if they did borrow their property and tho product of their work was all the time dropping down at the rate of 2 per cent per annum So in a little while we find that this state of affairs existed A few men of tho creditor class had un limited amounts of money which they could not use and tho great mass of tho debtor class had no money all their work amounted to nothing but living at best while what they owed on their farms they could not pay the interest upon and out of that distress this Alliance all at once sprang into full life It is true it was not tho tariff that caused it notwithstanding all the exertions of tho Democratic press to make it appear that it was the Mc Kinlcy bill that carried the election While np doubt the claptrap awakened by the passage of tho MoKinloy bill had its influence tho real secret of tho dis content and tho trouble lay In tho ef fects of that legislation passed seven teen years ago when tho good name of silver which was then tho perfect measure of values was dishonored by the deliberate act of our Government which caused it to begin to lose caste as compared with gold and which at tho same time began to drag down tho value of mans work and tho product of mans work until there was no profit left to tho farmer no matter how broad might be his acres or how hard ho toiled Wo rather suspect ono of two things Either that there will bo a bill very soon passedthrough Congress which will cause all the silver on hand in tho United States to bo converted into money which will have tho effect to advance tho prices of silver bullion up to almost par or there will bo a free coinage silver bill passed before the Fourth of March and ii such a bill should bo passed we do not believe that Prosideut HAIUUSON would veto it be cause while two years ago it took a bravo man to have much to say in favor silver in the East there is a senti ment that permeates every part of the East now oven Wall street itself that tho world needs all the silver it can get from tho hills for money and with Farmers Alliances by thou potitioning Congress for tho coinage of silver we think President of tho United States even if ho thought the measure of doubtful fiscal policy would prefer to endorse it and leave tho respon sibility upon tho people who demand it rather than fight public opinion and jeopardize tho very existence of his party by opposition And if that shall bo fixed by the fourth of March the Far mers Alliance cannot hold together on a call for the Government ownership of roads or a call that tho Government shall loan public money on tho perish able products of tho soil It looksftto us as though tho Farmers Alliance ought to about exhaust its energy in tho next four months their children that there would bo a cyclone awakened very soon This is only a matter of allegiance to the Government it is nothing to do with tho morals of tho people it has nothing to do with Uiolr private lives It is simply drawing the line as to where tho Church shall interfere with tho State and the aiai and object is to separate Church and Stato perpetually and to make it impossible for a man who holds a higher allegiance to a given church than ho does to his Stato from taking part in the government of tho Stato THE ALLIANCE The Farmers Alliance is troubling the old parties particularly in the East There seems to be a disposition to make an alliance between tho Alliance and the Democracy If that is done if the Alliance makes an alliance with either of tho old parties it will disappear as a party of course within a year The only possibly way it can hope to win will bo by holding itself aloof because if it attempts to join cither party and givo directions to that party its identity In a little while will bo lost If the Presidential election were to come next summer tho Alliance woeild havo a first rate chance to win whether it can hold its organization until ISJS is a matter of great doubt Tho strongest thing it urges is tho demonetization of silver that Is liable to come around before tho 4th of Tho Chief of tlio party distinctly stated that they not or ganize tho Alliance because of tlio tariff but because ot tho money troubles of these sands free tho WE think the country will endorse Secretary BLAINBS handling of tho MIZNEB difficulty From the corres pondence made public yesterday the im pression naturally comes that MIZNEJB is a capable upright generous man who tried to do his duty but who is too ami able and too unsuspecting to bo en trusted with the business of minister for any man at all familiar with tho waysin Central America could havo foreseen as ho ought to have foreseen that the object in obtaining possession of BAKKUNIHA was to kill him and he ought not to have permitted such a thing to happen on a ship and under the flag of the United States especially when a ship of war of his country was lying conveniently near and ready and anxious to take its part in whatever trouble might come Tho act was tho morewrong inasmuch as it was not perpetrated until after peace had been agreed upon and an amnesty had been extended offenders by tho very government that wanted to get this unfortunate for no purpose on earth except to kill him TITE Idaho Legislature will meet to morrow We repeat what we have said before We hope tho Republicans in that Legislature will think first of tho good of the Territory second of the good of tho party now and in the future and lastly will not forget that in elect ing Senators other things being equal those who have served the young State best and whoso lives and equipments give promise of serving it best in the future will bo tho men to bo honored It will require all the patriotism and wisdom of that body to enable tho mem bers to perform the duties that will be upon them and tho best guide for them to follow will be to determine that exact justice so nearly as they can determine what that is shall be done first to to tho State second to the Re publican party and lastly to candidates STANFORDS good horse is A great many men in California might better have died because a great many men inCali fornia are of no use in the world while the horse was He was aftor the man ner of Jons war horse His neck was clothed with thunder ho was given to paw in tlie valley and was not afraid he was the sire of a long line of distin guished He stamped his indi vidual ty on tho even statesmen and soldiers do When tho names of great horses are called over by those them always will havea sacred place in their memory He was only a horse but he was great Every little while we read something fanny in this world From a contempo rary we learn that tho United States ptodnces nearly or quite twofifths of he gold and sliver of the world Tho inclusion it draws is that while tho proportion of people who occupy this country is less than onetwentieth of tho worlds inhabitants the product of the and silver of this country is two fifths of the worlds product and hence that we would naturally expect to find this country has some gDid and silver to sell to other nations that therefore we find that in tho fiscal year ending with June 30th 1S90 tho export of the specie was and the import was tho excess of import over export Wo find stated also that kithe specie thus bought and sold exported and imported is sold by weight like flour or wool it is not money but merchandise Men speculate in it just as they do in wheat or cotton It is ono of our products of which we export the It would bo difficult to find out what tho amateur who wrote the above was driving at if we did not know that he had picked us up in our statement that it was a pity to send away all our money that if our nation was properly equip ped we would be able to hold much more of it here which is now sent away to make the balances that come because of our purchases and on account of the in terest money which wo have to pay etc This amateur caught at that and declared that wo did not send away money that what we sent away was in tbo form of bars or ingots that really it was merchandise That is where tho joke comes in Ho gravely assures us that tho specie thus bought and sold is not money but That is always the result when an amateur tries to play on words Wo turn to Webster and find Specie In the face of Webster this amateur says that when it is exported or imported it is not money it is Ap parently he does not know that gold is the standard of value which has a cer tain price all this world around Re ferred to either as specie or as bullion it is tho same everywhere and when wo speak of exporting or importing money tho thought whether i sin coin or in ingots never crosses any ones mind ex cept tho mind of just such an amateur as this one with whom we deal Silver for tho last seventeen years has been merchandise because our Government took away its sovereign attribute as money but both gold and silver if rated as merchandise acquire their chief value from the fact that they are recognized as money by the world But this amateur joos principle that the use of old and silver is to furnish the material o coin money each country needing a certain amount fixed with unerring cer ainty by the demands of trade No so un trycan profitably use more money than its normal amount and if the 0ined money is made to exceed this anount tho value of each piece of money falls in exact ratio of the over And still the Provo Asylum acks its patient Tuo man who wrote that can no more explain what ho means han a Piuto Indian can explain on what grounds he expects by tho ghost dance to call down the Messiah Perhaps ho means that if wo wore to use all our money exportno specie there would be no possible use for it in this country that it would become a drug on the market Over hear of any ountry that had an excess of money And how can ho explain that the people of France are able to use more money than the people of the United States have when tho whole area is confined to less than the size of ono of our States and when all the native resources of Franco have been utilized Have wo no more forests to fell No more mines to open No more roads to build Is there not a perpetual demand all through the West for more and more capital In addition to what wo havo are not Eng lish and French and German and Dutch capitalists finding profitable investment in America every year because they are content with a less percentage for their money than Americans are and will risk their money in some enterprises that wealthy Americans will not Again this amateur asks ff a surplus of gold and silver is an impossibility why is it exported There has been no gold exported except in payment of what our country purchases abroad The silver has been exported because our Government has refused to recog nize it as money and it has to be sent away to some country whore it is used as money Hence England has bought it not for use at home but to ship to her India Colony in the Orient which is on a silver standard and which absorbs some ounces of the whito metal annually This amateur assures us that after soiling all our market will consume at the usual price there is no possible way of soiling tho remainder hero unless the price is lowered It is hard dealing with a contemporary of this kind In point of fact England being the com mercial center of Jihe world tho price of silver is fixed there and has been since our Government demonetized it Before that England was very glad to come here and pay a premium for it aud pay for it in gold As it is our Secre tary of the Treasury has simply bought in the markets of the world the silver required by the law of Congress for coinage in the cheapest market and that has compelled our miners to send their silver to England to sell and then our Secretary has bought it back The year before last he bought back that had first been shipped our shores Again this amateur says There need be no talk about exporting gold and sil ver if our market will consume it that isv if it will buy as much in goods here as That is all we started in to saythat if our country would the gold and silver produced by our mines as money if itwoald restore silver to its old place make what merchan dise now money that then if wo could hold it here that is if pur country could produce what our people need so that money instead of being paid out to foreign countries could bo kept in cir culation in our own country in twenty years ours would be the richest and most powerful Nation on the earth This amateur says that wo urge that the export of precious metals makes this country poor and should therefore The export of precious metals by anycountry to pay for goods makes it poor When we say our export should cease we mean of course and could mean nothing else except that we ought to produce hero what we buy abroad and thus keep our money at home So sensitive is England on this same sub ject that if a draft wore to bo made on the Bank of England today for and the demand should be in money or bullion to bo sent out of the country that bank would at onco raise its rato of discount so high that it would be impossible almost to trans fer it Again this amateur says wo justify the tariff which confiscates onethird of the pay that the miners receive for their supplies and thinks the amount of this confiscation should bo increased till the miner could no longer export any gold or This is simply a double and treble falsehood The amount paid by miners on tho score of the tariff is very light They do not pay nearly so much as they would had no tariff ever been instituted they do not pay more than a fair propor tion of the expenses of tho Government of the United States they are none of them suffering through any oppression of that kind Inasmuch as tho tariff is mentioned in connection with the miner the position of tho amateur on thai question is of Interest to the miner If he could have his way he would have all the lead in Mexico brought in free and he would cause the miner of this region to accept the wages of the laborer of the farm or havo hiiu emigrate That shows exactly how good a friend ho is of tho miner and shows in a vivid way just how stupendous an idiot ho is on general principles I iras emphasizes tho fact that one more strug gle ought to bo made to put tho Indians in hands that would teach them to work and make them selfsupnortiug A white man whon he has nothing to do has a natural tendency though ho bo a pretty good man to become 1 vagrant or worse The brain is tho most active or gan in tho Indian as well as the white man and if it has nothing legitimate to work upon it is prone to grow trillinc and to run olT on some tangent There are a few men in

FARLOW Secretary and He nnftBi DTW Tronn nn rlllo MJb WHOLESALE M RETAIL RU A dispatch tells us that away off in Singapore some children playing among old ruins there unearthed two beautiful groups of statuary among whose figures i were tho goddess of wealth and the patron of learning That these are so ancient that both history and tradition arc alike silent as to their origin but that the Hindoo population accepted them as objects of worship and during their temporary sojourn at the police station they were visited by crowds and smothered with sweet oils and llowers Last year a Russian scaled the before unexplored crest of Mount Kasbek in the Caucasus range but when his party came down from tho mountain a violent rain storm was raging which flooded tho valleys and did much damage to tho corn and destroyed some of tho native huts This the people regarded as a penalty for tho sacrilege which was committed by intruding upon tho holy mountain summit Popular Science gives the Osscte tradition that when GOD de termined to send a Messiah down to tho earth Ho could find no place except this peak which had not been defiled by tho sinful feet of man ho therefore placed the child in this spotin a golden cradle and by tho sido of it a dove and a sheep with golden horns Tho dove was to rock the cradle and coo and the sheep was to amuse the child with its bleating The animals were fed from a pile of wheat which was provided by divine authority When the Loro had grown up he came down to earth performed His divine acts and wont back to heaven but Heleft the cradle and the dovo and the sheep on the mountain as memorials of His abode there The dove is still rocking the cradle and the bleating of the sheep can sometimes be plainly hoard in the evening and they still feed on the wheat which has never failed It was their belief among the Os setes that GOD would never per mit any one to go to the top of Kasbek Now they think the Russian has gone up and stolen the golden cradle for wliich the Almighty manifested his anger in the terrible storm And all these stories renew the fact that from time immemorial from the time away back beyond the birth of history men had their creeds had their beliefs had their objects of worship Whether their beliefs were first founded on a desire for immortal ityK or whether they were founded through fear it matters they were founded and now the chil dren of Buddha worship the images dug from the earth images which were made buried and forgotten so long ago that there is no tradition regarding them Tlniy take theso up and perfume them with flowers and precious oils and in the same way the rude chil dren of the Caucasus hold their tra ditions about their sacred moun tain When babies smile on their mothers bosoms the fond mothers be liove they hear the coo of that dove which was sent to sooth their LOUD and rock His cradle and with the lively imaginations of the East the faithful aire ready to aver that they hear the bleating of that sheep which was sent to bo tlic cradle companion of the Savior And so traditions are kept alive so worship goeson in one form or another through generation after gener ation and whether it be found in India or in a story told in the willd mountains in Western Asia there is always a similarity between them there is always acentral figure of the Savior there is always mixed up with it a dream of im mortality and coming from there across the sea to our own untutored tribes they join hands around tho camp fire dance a ghost danco in anticipation of the coming of their Messiah and the same thought is behind the people whether they live where civilizations cradle was first rocked or vrtiethcr they be savages who have never yet learned that it is not good to cut throats or to honest living It would be worth wnile dying one of these days either to have these mysteries all cleared up or to have the rest which will come when one passes to thatV land where traditions tare not repeated and where ghost stories arc not told GKNERAL MILES says the Indians have for two years If that is true it is a shame and disgrace and it DR G W TIBBITS EYE AND EAR DISEASES 10 Sonth ALT LAKE
