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 ranks. ; A whole gun crew" of the Massachu setts was blown up and all killed or mortally wounded- except one, last week, the cause being the premature explosion of a charge for an eight inci. gun while at target practice. 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 republican medicine bag seems to nave had a rent made in it after 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 after it was collected was to be paid 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. Senatorial elections in various state legislatures are as follows: Thomas Piatt of New York, re-elected; Orville H. Piatt of Connecticut, re-elected; Albert J. Hopkins of Illinois, at pres ent congressman, to succeed "Billy" Mason; James P. Clark of Arkansas, to succeed Senator Jones; William J. btone of Missouri, to succeed Senator Vest; Charles W.

A disgraceful state of affairs exists out in our sister state, Colorado.

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.
