THE UTAH ADMISSION QUES
TION. The Ktirpiisc in connection with the
Utah admission question is not that Utah
will not he allowed to come iu this year,
hut tit it any worthy or responsible per
sons should seek to hiing it in. In no
respect except in number of population
loes the territory possess the elements
requisite in a state. The majority of its
inhabitants belong to a church whose
system of policy U hostile to tUo govern
ment, and most of its adherants, although
perhaps not openh-y just now, are devoted
to purposes and practices which are at
war with the sentiments of decency and
propriety whieU lie at the foundation of
society in every enlightened land. That
there should be a serious attempt to con
fer on this territory the broader and
jj;hcr privileges inhering in statehood is
nn insult to Oregon, California, Missouri,
New York, Virginia and the other decent
and law-abididg communities with which
it is sought to place Utah on a political
fSince the recent repressive enuctments
have gone into affect polygamy is not
openly and avowedly practiced in Utah.
There are the best of reasons, however,
for ttie belief that this system is ttill car
ried on in secret, and that the laws re
lating to it are persistantly and exten
sively disobeyed. Xor is it denied, so far
as we are aware, by anybody who has any
intimate knowledge of the question, that
the Mormon hierarchy still exercises a
despotic sway over the minds of the mem
bers of that faith. In all questions of
dispute of authority between the church
and the state the church arrogates to it
self supremacy, and it ia to the church,
according to the teachings of that society,
which its members' first and most im
plicit allegiauce is due.
1 he country has found difficulty in
making Utah, even while in the territo
rial stai'e, conform outwardly to the cus
toms and usages of Christendom. It is
not, iu fact, believed that an .entirely
flattering amount of success has yet beer
achieved in this particular. It is un
reasonable, therefore to suppose that then
. would be a more general compliance with
the canons of propriety if the control oi
Utah's concerns were taken out of Un
hands of congress, where it rests now,
and put in charge of officials chosen and
dominated by the Mormons themselves.
Indeed, no intelligent person does suppose
any such thing. The individuals who ac
tually believe that a sweeping reform :n
the manners and moral of that commu
nity would be brought about simply by
granting the community the privilege to
do as it pleases, which power wr uld yir-
. tually Le granted by its admission to
statehood, are either too arcadian in
their simplicity to merit attention, or too
perverse or sinister in their motives to hi
worthy of respect. A few democrats np
pear to be anxious to admit Utah, in tin
hope of securing its vote in congress and
in the electoral college. The great ma
jority of rightly constructed Americans,
however, do not think this a sulhViei ?
reason to sanction the commission and
perpetuation of an offense against tin
laws and usages on which ciyilizcil
society rests. Globe Democrat.

The report which has just co;ne froir
Ramon, tliows that the situation anions
those islands in the Pacific Occau, is much
more grave than the earlier intelligence
received in the United Stat's made it
appear to be. Not only hs Germany
continued its aggressions ag.iinst tin
lawful authorities of the slan.ls, hut has
made a fi ijjrant and uprovoked attack
upon a representative of our government
stationed there. A United States marshall
been pursued nn l wounded by Ger
man sailors, the United States consul and
the captain of one of our war yessels
. liaye been affronted by the Gernan offi
cials; the Amcricin flag h is been torn
down and burned; American citizens
made prisoners und taken aboard German
ship; the lives and property of othei
Americans placed in imminent peril, and
a grave and wanton insult offered to tin
The story which b here told is one
which ought to arouse the indignation of
the people and compel the administration
to seek a prompt and thorough explana
tion from Germany. It is hardly probable
that liismurck desires a war with this
country, but if Germany dtes not apolo
gise for its wonton destruction of prop
erty and insults to the United States in
Samoa, she will discover before hostilities
end that, when the emergency arises, the
United States possesses both the courage
and ability to effectually defend the
honor and interests of its people.
Germany must beware, for on the 4th
of march next the administration of
this country passes into bauds that will
make it warm for her if she does not give
a good and sufficient apology for the
insults in Samoa.
Tiik Ilchring Sea performances of the
administration last summer require thor
ough investigation. "When the revenue
cutters left San Francisco for their cruises
in northern waters, it had been announc
ed that no sealing .would be allowed
during the season. During April the
treasury department was Informed by
Captain Ilealy that clearing papers had
been refused to British vessels for Behring
Sea, and the crews could not be shipped
at Victoria for sealing. Owners of
American sealing vessels at Port Town
send and Seattle Jiad hoen telegraphing
to a republican senator to ascertain
whether they would be allowed to fish
in those waters, and annwcrs had been
sent warning them that thay would be
liable to seizure. The American sealers
did not go north, but the British fleet
sailed ot the last moment, in consequence
of the rexent iepejpf of secret dispatches
at Victoria announcing a change of policy
on the part of the administration. Those
dispatches were gent from "Washington
when the secret orders ecuntcruiancung
the published instructions were prepared
for the revenue service. The British
poachers doubtless got the cue owing to
a betrayal of trust on fLe part of some
subordinate, AH these matters need
probing. X. Y. Tribune.
Better Than Ever.
It did seem as though the seedsmen
outdid t2,cn??elyes last year in the line of
elaborate catalogue, but Ji-Jre comes
Vick's Floral Guide for 188D, from
Rochester, N. Y., better than all previous
issues, "Better" hardly expresses it
rather, we iboujd say, far superior. It
has been changed in every iespept: new
cuts, new type, enlarged in size (opening
like an old-fashioned singing-book); con
tains throe elegant lithographs (8x1 Of
inches) of Poses, tferapirniis and Melon
Tomato; beside a very fine plate of the
late James Vick and his three sons who
now own and manage this large business.
These features must make the Floral
Guide valuable to their many thousands
of customers in this country.
"We also notice that Vick returns to the
dan started by the founder of the busi
ness years ago, of offering cash prizes at
the state fair. One would think thev
were a little out of their heads to offer
to the public sucli a work as the Guide
free, for that is what it amounts to, when
thev say it will be sent on receipt of
fifteen cents worth of seed will be return
ed with the Guide.
''Tis better not to be, than be unhap

Music for Irrlng's "Macbeth."
Sir Arthur Sullivan's music, composed
specially for the revival of "Macbeth,
in London, consists of an overture, pre
ludes to the second, third, fifth and
sixth acts, incidental music with a chorus
'hi the fourth act, and incidental music
in tho first, third and sixth acts. The
overrule, so far as it i3 possible to judge
from a single hearing, seems to be
strictly orthodox, and opens with
three loud chords in the key of C minor;
and then, without further preamble, apr
pears the principal subject- a suave but
somlier theme, played by string instru
ments alone. In the second part the
overture works up to a tremendous cli
max. The musical critics consider it
one f the finest examples of its class
that Sir Arthur Sullivan has ever. pro
duced. The two choruses are Very
sweet; It is in the fourth act, however,
that Sullivan has displayed the greatest
art and his richest wealth of imagina
tive power. Music of an either weird or
agitated character is heard-well nigh
throughout the scene in the cavern be
twet'n Slacbeth and the witches. It
punctuates the utterances of the hags as
they mix their hell broth in the caldron.
