United States 3enator he spent in the
; Mormon temple with.. the -Other eleven
apostles of that church. The rank of
apostle in the Mormon church about
equals that of bishops or archbishops
in,other denominations. If a bishop
of any other church was elected Unit
ed States senator, there -would be a
row. But as this particular bishop is
known to be a defender of polygamy
the row Is likely to be a pretty lively
one. However, Smoot will be senator
and legislate for you and me just as
the other senators do. It is the cul
mination of the bargain that the re
publican party made with the Mor
mon bishops and apostles when the
state was thrown into the republican

setts was blown up and all killed or
mortally wounded- except one, last

explosion of a charge for an eight

The National Live Stock associa
tion is in a state of terror over the
meat trust merger. At Kansas City
last week it passed resolutions and
did all sorts of things along that line,
but the merger will be completed all
the same. That trust has enough mon
ey to escape investigating grand jur
ies cud all the annoyances that the
little trusts meet with. The only way
to beat the meat trust is to beat the
republican party and get an attorney
general who will endeavor to enforce
the anti-trust laws.

the output of coal. John Mitchell made !
a statement before the commission in j
which he declared that the operators j
are deliberately doing that very thing
themselves. He said that there were
over 3,000 miners who had been de
manding work ever since the mines
started up and the mine owners re
fused to employ them.

The republican medicine bag seems

all. To keep the thing absolutely
sacred it was provided that the reg
ular duty on coal should stand as it
was, but a rebate of the full amount

lack to the importer. That was to
prevent the holy of holies from being
entered at all. Now the department
has decided that the silly performance
of collecting the money and then pay
ing it back shall be dispensed with.
So there has been a hole poked in the
republican big medicine bag, the sac
red tariff, which is in the keeping of
the family of Aldrich.

It seems that the polished Jonathan
P. Dolliver may prove a veritable bull
in the protection china shop.
"Did it (the Dingley act) mean that
we were going to surrender all the
industries of the United States to the
GREED, if you please, of the agricul
tural interests and the manufacturers
of the west?" shouted Senator Aldrich
angrily in answer to Senator Dolliver's
assertion that: "It is true that iirthe
bill Mr. Dingley reported from the
committee on ways and means, of
which I was a member, he did put du
ties up for the express purpose of hav
ing them traded down."
Senator Aldrich seems frightened
over the prospects of the "omnivorous
west" securing any legislation which
might in the remotest degree benefit
that section. Of course, he has no
reason for any apprehension Durkett,
McCarthy, Hinshaw, Norris, and Kin-
kaid from Nebraska can be depended
upon to do whatever the trusts want
them to do. "Western greed," in
deed! It is satan rebuking sin.
