A Letter from Judge Cochran.
The publisher is in receipt of
the following personal letter from
Judge Cochran, which he deems
of sufficient general moment to re
produce in print for the benefit of
the readers of The Tribune and of
the judge’s many friends here and
Salt Lake City, May 25.
F. M. Kimmell, Dear Sir and
Friend: After casting about sev
eral months for a location I have
at last cast my lot here. I confess
I see no present prospect of mak
ing money or securing a law prac
tice here, as every line of business,
and the profession of law, is well
represented by men of merit and
a bar of numerical strength as well.
But I think there is a good future
in store for the territory and the
city. They are expending more
money in public improvements
here than in any city I have seen
lately, and there are more good
and substantial improvements in
the shape of business blocks built
and under headway than I have
seen elsewhere. The Mormons,
too, will, I think, exert themselves
to the extent necessary to keep the
city in the front of the great pro
cession. They are very much
changed from the condition we
have been taught they were in.
Their young men are in various
kinds of business enterprises and
they are wide awake to the meth
ods pertaining to securing prefer
ment and the dollar, and if I am
not greatly mistaken they are look
ing much more to the material
prosperity of their people than to
the advancement of their religion.
They seem to be a good business
people; the finest stores in the
city, aud I think some of the finest
I ever saw, are kept by the Mor
mons in this city. They are much
more conservative than I supposed,
however, and are averse to rapid
strides in the way of public im
provements. I have seen some
cities and states where a more con
servative policy would have been
better than the one pursued. The
largest temperance gathering I
ever sa\v, and Rev.Wolley, the lec
turer, says the largest strictly
temperance meeting ever assem
bled . the United States, was held
here Sunday night at the Mormon
tabernacle, between ten and eleven
thousand people being in attend
ance. It was a union temperance
meeting of the Mormon and all
the other churches of the city, the
ministers all occupying places with
the Mormon bishops and elders.
I have formed a partnership
with C. H. Martin, formerly of
Oxford. We have rented rooms
-- in the Commercial block, the finest
office building ip the city. We
have a very comfortable home six
blocks from the office at a rent of
§20 per month; it is not a fine
house, but a comfortable little
brick ®f five rooms, closets, city
water, etc., and on the street car
line; however, it is within walking
distance of the office, church or
schools. Mrs. Cochran and Alice
very much enjoy the change and
imagine they are much benefitted
already. Their appetites are much
improved and Mrs. Cochran walks
more here in one day than she did
back there in a month; Sunday we
walked three miles and yesterday
| over four miles. We have teen
^boarding and living in furnished
|ooms and the rest has contributed
much, I presume, to their im
P^ved condition as the change of
aate. If the territory and
improves as I hope and think
will, this will certainly be a
location for all branches of
business; but if from the depres
sion of silver or any other cause
it should be checked in its present
progress, I think it would then be a
very poor location for any kind of
business. I find we have to take
some chances wherever we go.
By-tlie-way I have not received
your paper since coming here, and
I believe I understood that you
would send it to me; perhaps it
may be coming but not to the cor
rect address; send to 74-5 Com
mercial block. Salt Lake City.
I find very many people here
whom I knew in different parts of

A few Nebraska newspaper men
are evidently dissatisfied with his
excellency Governor Crounse. So
far as The Tribune is able to judge
the governor is attending strictly

any special bid for the approbation
