TilK tolls are gradually tifliteinng g
about the "twin relic. " The Huprotno . |
court of * tlie Territory of Utuh rendered I
a decision recently in the case or tho
United States against the Mormon
church , which declares the corporation
of the church dissolved and that the
voluntary religious sect now in existence
has no rii ht to the corporate property *
except the temple block aud the build- |
nigs which are set aside to it. It is al
so decreed that all the property of tho
late corporation is escheated to the gov
ernment. The case was most stubborn-
contested , and is a complete triumph
for the government. This decision fol- • • " " * \
lowing so close upon the iiiipiixitiiiient
of ex ( . 'oneresbinaii Cannon for polygamy
furnishes significant proof of lh < 5 rapid
growth of public sentiment against Mor-
moiiisui in its own stronghold. It.shows
that the moral leaven which has been in
troduced into Utah by the Gentile ele
ment of its population is working , and
that by the natural process of growth it
will gradually overshadow and finally
obliterate the evil which has so long
rented like a withering blight upon the
territory of Utah. The onward march
of civilization is mightier than the con
quest of arms , and the dark blot of poly
gamy will lade from the American re- •
public in the clear light of progress
which sheds its rays to the remotest . .

It being notoriously the practice with
democratic administrations to hire ft
great sipind uf men itt all the navy
\ards just before an election to use as
heeler.- the polls , emigres * passed an
act , iu ISTli , prohibiting an increase of
the force at any navy yaid within sixty
days of an election unle.s the secretary
of the navy issued a certificate to thu
i-ffect that tlie needs of the service re
quired an extra lot of men. Secretary
Whitney ha * consequently just issued a
certificate for the increase of the force
immediately at the Brooklyn navy yard.
They .want voters badly in New York
and the navy lias got to hump itself
pirbt away. The secretary says that
the einergpiicy is the necessity of liur-
ry-u > r up the completion of the work on ,
a. number of old vessels. These vessels ,
by the way , have been at the yards over
since tiie administration came into
power and will probably be there long
after it goes-out.
It has beep decided by the su
preme court of Illinois in a case touch
ing a claim of a benevolent institution
the House of the Good.Sjiepherd that |
it is unlawful to employ public school
money to "feed , clothe and educate
waifs in a religious institution. " There
was no question as to the service'having
been rendered by the institution , but
the county attorney resisted payment
upon the ground that such an appropria
tion of the public school fund would be -
uncon-dittilional.aud his action has beeu
sustained by the highest tribunal of the
state. There can be no doubt about the
justice of the decision.
The interstate commerce commission
has decided adversely to the plaintiff in
the case of Griffe against the Burling
ton & Missouri Itivcr Railroad company
in Nebraska. The offence of which the
road was alleged to be guilty was unjust
discrimination in the issuing of a pass
to one 0. II. Waite , a former employe.
The commission decided that as the pass
had not been usedno offense existed
under the section of the statute under
which the complaint was brought.
What the decision would have beenhad ,
the case been brought under a different
section is not hinted by the commission. ]
A Dkmockatic journal estimates that
"Gen. Harri.ou ' s speeches thus far in
the campaign have enough material in j
them , if properly make for- '
ty annual messages to congressseventy-
five thanksgiving proclamations , seven-
i teen inaugural addresses , ninety-seven
Jveto messages and eighty-four miscel
laneous speeches to delegations and
special audiences of all sorts. " And
the oddity of it is that he has not yet
made one poor speech , nor said one
thiutr which the democratic press can
, ' pick to pieces or turn against him.
