The.se are made in all sorts of material,

There has been quite a display of nov

colors, even including eminence (tho car

and cashmeres, with rich inwoven Turk

really beautiful. There was a fancy di
agonal in all the new colors, and in each
pattern the most of them wero inter

imagine, difficult to do with woolen
threads only. There are also changeable
fcorges, very pretty, but not durable if

There aro several novelties in silk and
wool mixtures, which make lovely lus

Salt LakicCity. April (!. The Church
of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has
at last completed, and even as I write
this is joyously dedicating tho most re
markable structure, all things consid
ered, in tho United States. It has been
the subject of more ardent hopes and
trembling fears, of more confident and
more virulent prophecy, tho cause of
more wdd rejoicing as well as of heart
burnings and bitterness, than any other
American building, ami it stands to lay
a monument of sustained hope and per
severance which is truly Mihlimc. Kay,
if you will, that it is also a monument
of folly and fanaticism it is at least a
splendid and harmless one.
In 18.")$ Horace (ireeley spoke of poo
plo and temple with a philosophic con
tempt. In 1800 Richard l- Burton, the
noted Ar.iatic and African traveler, took
a slightly more favorable view, but de
clared that no Pacific railway would
bo built in this century. Hichardson,
Bowles nnd Colfax in lbli. thought tho
temple might bo finished in time to servo
as a statehouso for tho Gentile state,
soon to rise on tho ruins of Mormouisni.
In 1870 Beadle, tho frautio nnti-Mor-inon,
declared that tho temple would
never bo completed. Mrs. Waite, an
other radical writer, declared that the
Mormons would soon tleo to tho Sand
wich Islands. And so tho stream of
prophecy llowed on, but hero the temple
is, and 100,001) Mormons aro celebrat
Leaving details of tliia week to tlio
talking wire. I present a fow points of
history which will servo to explain tlieso
proceedings. Sixty-threo years ago to
day, in tho house of Peter Whitmor, in
Fayette, Seneca county, N. Y., Joseph
Smith and vo others organized tho
"Church of Christ," as they called it.
Tho other words wero added to the title
at Kirtland, O.; but their now revelation
being designated tho "Book of Mormon,"
tho world gave them tho name of Mor
monites. Next year they founded Kirt
land, O., and located the sito of their
great tempi" to bo at Independence, Mo.
Thero all faithful saints (.Mormons) fond
ly believe is their last gathering place on
earth, and there they will have a temple
tar surpassing Solomon s.

"Vlun lliimlri'il Ni'tircm l.llni(iii tlm At-It-It

HAt.AMANix, N. Y., April 0 Ancient
Indian traditions toll of a mighty race
who, stretching thnir possession) mainly
throughout what is now Pennsylvania,
Now York and Ohio, Initio defiance to all
who attempted to subdue them. Hut at
length the liidnmitnhlu Iroquois became
numbered among their foes, and after
terrific battles and long cnulllct the an
cient race, the Alligewi, wero hopelessly
conquered and driven from their homos.
TIii'sp Alligewi, so thero Is much ron
ton to believe, wero tho veritable mound
builders, and tho wonl "Alleghany" is
but a white man's corruption of their
name. But how Htrauge it is that along
tho banks of the Alleghany river tho do
scemlants of the greatest enemies of tho
mound builders still live!
In a reservation of some SI0.000 acres,
a Htrip of tenltory '10 miles long by
about one mile in width, varying some
what ns the width of the valley varies.
with tho broad and gentle Alleghany
Mowing throughout its length, live some
000 Indians, almost all of them being
Tlio original meaning of their Indian
iiaino was, 'Mhey who aio at tho door
way," for tho ancient Iroquois, by a
splendid conception, pictured (heir mag
nificent realm as one great house, stretch
ing from tho Hudson, where the Mo
hawks guarded tho eastern poital. to the
groat lakes, where tho Senecas kept
watch at tho western door.
One who passes through tho dreary
Alleghany reservation, where tho fields
aro covered with countless stumps still
to bo uprooted, and where but little
farming is carried on, and that but in a
sadly inefficient manner, thinks of the
original meaning of tho Seneca name,
for truly these Indians aro still "at tho
Tho reservation is hemmed in on either
hand by a line of dark and loftily abrupt
hills, and it is claimed that tho Indians
woro induced to accept such n narrow
strip by being made to believe that -10
square miles meant tho same as '10 miles
Yet a generous government does not
forget them By treaty they have tho
right to the annual interest accruing
from the sum for which they sold their
former hinds, and each one on tho res
ervation receives, therefore, each year
what is supposed or claimed to bo tho
worth of if I. i!0 in gingham or sheeting
or some such material.
Tho reservation consists largely of river
water, ami through such part as is laud
tevcral inilroads have been allowed to
run their tracks, while mom than this,
one good flized city, Salamanca, is located
within tlio reservation, and several small
er towns as well.
Tho whites went in without any right,
and recognizing tho illegality of their
tenure put up frail, unsubstantial build
ings without foundations, ho that little
loss would ensuu should they bo com
pelled to remove.
But the government enmo to their ro
lief. Such deserving citizens ought not
to bo neglected. An act was passed in
187.t allowing them tho legal right to
lease lauds of tho Indians for quite a term
of years. It was known that tlio majority
of tho tribe would not refuse the small
amount of money offered, and tho In
dians wero therefore allowed to part
with tho right to largo poitiousof their
lauds, no regard whatever being had for
future generations of their race.
Tho Indians aro confronted by a serious
problem. Their own timber has been
chopped down and is therefore no longer
a source of revenue. They must either
obtain work in sawmill and lumber le
gions, as some of them already do, or
they must (arm, and how to cultivate
those rough and stumpy fields is a prob
lem. Tho iusidoof an Indian home is usually
a scene of careless disorder. Articles of
furniture and use stand about in all sorts
of positions, and the walls, if papered at
all, aro usually papered with newspapers
which moio than likely aro Happing and
Yet tho Indians, both men and women,
are pleasantly happy as a tide and do
not seem to dread the future.
