Washington, September 14, 188G.
Of all tbe Cabinet officers of tbo
present administration, Mr. Bayard
appears. to be tbe most ill-starred in
bis selection of men. We have long
been traduced of foreign nations be
cause of the ignorance and vulgarity
of tbe members of our diplomatic
and consular service. The Sedgwick
scandal has scarcely been silenced,
when we hear of another in relation
to our Consul at Hong Kong, ex-Senator
Robt. E. Withers. Tho poople
of the great Chinese city most have
very little respect for America, if
they judge her by ber representa
tives. Of late serious charges have
been laid at tbe State Department
against the present consul there. It
is alleged that be defrauds American

rigid investigation will be made,
and it will probably result in Mr.
Gen. Aitkins, the Commissioner of
Indian affairs, has ordered the
agents at various places on tho Sioux
reservation to issue invitations to the
different bands.to attend grand feasts
to be held at the agencies. The ob
ject of this is to count tbe Indians,
and thus arrive at some approximate
idea as to how many there are on the
reservation. Gen. Aitkins believes
that tbe Government is now furnish
ing rations for.a much greater num
ber of Indians than really exist, and
since Congress has failed to make an
appropriation for a census taken in
tbe regular way, the Commissioner
thinks that a call to a feast will cer
tainly bring tbe Indians together, and
enable every buck, squaw and pap
poose to be counted better than by any
It is a big step from the Sioux res
ervation to the bureau of Engraving
and Printing, but the subject of bow
to make money is always interesting,
and I propose to explain it to your
readers free ot charge. Tbe green
backs, banknotes, bonds, silver and
gold certificates, and postage and
revenue stamps used by tbe United
States are printed at the bnreau of
Engraving and Printing in this city.
The engraver takes a piece of soft
steel, covered with wax, .on which
the design to be represented is. lifjBf
f trrtd. He then scratches tan Upt
of the design on tbe wax, and put
tbe plate into a bath of acid, which
eats into the steel through tbe Tines
cut through tbe wax. The latter is
then removed and the plate hardened
in a fnrnace. A cylinder of soft
steel is. then rolled over the plate,
receiving the impression thereon.
From this cyl inder, now called a die,
any number of plates can be made.
After tho plato has beeu carefully
inspected, it leaves tho engravers'
bauds, aud is sent upstairs to the
As every note has two colors of
ink upon it, it must be priuted twice.
Usually the outer edge is printed
first; then after being dried and
dampened it receives the impression
of the portrait or vignette. Then it
is numbered, tbe white edges clipped
off by a little machine, and smoothed
under a powerful hydraulic press.
It is now ready to be sent to tho
United States Treasurer, who affixes
tbe great seal, or if it is a National
Bank note, it is sent to the bank to
receive the signatures of the presi
dent and cashier.
It may be thought that there is
danger of some of tbe money being
lost or stolen as it passes from hand
to hand. But this great money mill
moves even its most petty detail
with such clock-work system, that
every piece of money, finned or
otherwise, and every piece of paper
accounted forj and the least iSjUf u
larity in one printer's return1 would
be at once noticeable.
It may not be generally known
that American engraving is far su
perior to that of any other nntiou,
and that in thi country the art ha
been brought to such perfectiou that
atthepreseut time notes of fifteen
European and South American na
tionalities are printed in the United

Dear Journal: Much might be
said, ot interest to your readers in
regard to tho route from the east to
California, but I have not time to
more tbau hint at these. Your cor
respondeut went to California via tho
Atlantic and Pacific or middle route
and is now returning via tho Central
Pacific. On either of theso there aro
nearly a thousand miles in which the
discomforts far exceed tbe pleasures.
In our experieuce the middle route,
said by so mauy to be so hot aud un
pleasant, was not so disagreeable or
uncomfortable as has been the Cen
tral Pacific. On the Middle wo on
countered tho "Mojave Desert" at
"Tbo Needles," just after crossing the
Colorado river. The day before we
reached Tbe Needles tbe thermometer
stood 130 degrees above zero aud the
night before, at midnight, 108 degrees
above zero, and yet we experienced
no special inconvenience from the
heat in travelling across that desert,
during the entire day, as the breeze
caused by the moving of the car was
sufficient to make us comfortable.
The auu was bo hot that by noon it
was impossible to hold your hand on
the car brake wheel. On the Central
Pacific we suffered more with tbe
heat, and combined with it was an
intolerable dust whirl) did uot
trouble us ou the other route. At
condensed milk for our coffee and in
formed that there was not a cow
living within 150 miles of that place.
Here and at Laguna, Gallup, Navajo
Springs, Yucca and other points we
saw plenty of Indiaus, each repre
senting different tribes. The chil
dren aud men were ever ready to ex
hibit their skill in tbe use of tbe bow
aud arrow, when any of tbe passen
gers were ready to put up a nickel or
piece of silver for tbem to shoot at, as
was always done wheu we stopped
long enough for this sport. But
there was one peculiarity about them
in this, that they would not shoot at
or for a copper piece of money, nor
even a ten dollar gold piece, copper
and gold being worthless in their es
timation. They are practically
monn-melallists, but their standard
is strictly silver.
We are now at one of tbe most In
teresting points in our country at the
present time; interesting not only
because of tbe nice city, the beautiful
parks or section of country in which
located, the noted Salt Lake near
whose head it is located, but also
because of the institutions of the
Mormons and polygamy which here
prevail. Every one is able at once to
apprehend the fact that polygamy is
most infamooB, and should be sup
pressed, and yet many may bo dis
posed, honestly, to believe that Mor
moniBm may only be a matter of
opinion and hence should not bef in
terfered with by our government, as
should polygamy. In conversation
with intelligent citizens of Salt Lako
we were assured that Mormonism ia
but little better than polygamy ; that
the latter is infamous in its relation
to the family circles, while the former
is traitorouB in its relation to the
government; that there is no prin
ciple or teaching in Mormonism that
is in harmony with our republican
institutions, but that on the other
hand tbe teachings of Mormonism
are undemocratic, and disloyal to tbe
government. The gentiles of this
city and territory have been made to
rejoice with exceeding great joy at
tbe appearance of bo many old sol
diers on the way to and from Cal
ifornia. Perhaps ten - or fifteen
thousand old soldiers have stopped
here going or coming, and their
presence has given new courage to
the gentiles and corresponding de
pression tc tbe Mormons and
poly garni sts. These have been led to
realize, as never before, that this
government was supported and de
fended by these men ia tbe hour of
need aad should their service be
again demanded they would be just
as ready to respond. Public meet
ings were held in the city and many
representative old soldiers were'
enabled to give a word of cheer to
those living here, who are loyal to
the principles of our government.

going down to within ten or fifteen
feet of the ground. On the inside it
is 150 by 250 feet, will teat fifteen
thousand people nnd in taid to have
held, at one time, twenty thousand
people; it is provided with a grand
organ, said to he the second best in
the United States; the choir is com
posed of from forty to fifty voices,
nearly equally divided between male
and female voices, tbe male voices
being on one side of the great organ
and the females on tbe other, at a
half angle to the audience; iu front
of the organ and within the line of
the choir are three pulpits, one
elevated above the other, each of
which has a platform with seats,
upon which are a number of rep
rcHenlatives of the church, occupying
the first, cecond or third pulpit or
platform, according to their standing
in the church. After the opening
exercipea of singing and prayer, ten
elders or the chinch step in trout of
the aliar whoie they proceed to
break the bread for the cacrament,
which taken from five to ten minutes,
when ten young hoys mke the bread
to pass through the audience, and in
a similar way dispose of the wine.
The pa-isiug oi the bread aud wine
occupy a irieaf pmt oi the. time of the
service. Soots after the bread is
staited through the congregation the
preacher commences his crti)on,
without any regard to ihe other part
of tho Porvicp. The day wo were
there a Mr. Hoherto, who for
eighteen months past has beeu en
gaged in missionary work (as he
called it) in the United States, but
principally iu the southern states,
preached. His text was, "Blessed
are ye when men revile you and
persecute you, He." You may well
conclude what the character of the
address was. Wo nevor saw an
audience gathered anywhere which
iu every appearance seemed to rep
resent as low au average of intel
ligence, culture, or refinement, in
proportion to the number present, as
characterized that iu tho Mormon
Taburniclc. It seemed to bo com
posed very largely of Englishmen,
who from their appearance looked to
be the mmt "hull-heailed" or ail
English people, Swedes and Nor
wegians, belonging to that class of
which it has been said, if their
leaders were to tell them to kill a
man because he was opposed to them,
they would at once consider it a
sacred aud religious duty. It
Moruiouibiu is to he judged by tho
cuaracter of the audience which we
saw, and not by what it has done and
is doing, even that would be enough
to condemn it. The advent of two
lines of railroads to this place, the
coming of thousands of people, tbe
determined stand of the gentile peo
ple and the influence of the govern
ment, all combined, will speedily
hasteu the day when this "Twin
relic of barbarism" shall be wiped
out from the face of the earth, as it
should be. Honest, intelligent
believers iu tbe Mormon faith else
where, should make one pilgrimage
to Utah and stay thefe long enough
to learn what Mormonism is, in its
stronghold, and they would forever
thereafter renounce it.
But enough for this time, as my
letter is already too length)'.

Wyck must go. We have said it,
We have no use for him he is not

pend on bim in au emergency; any
man occupying the position he does,
and who has the brazen effrontery to
appeal to tbe people instead of ap
pealing to us, to decide who shall be
our next Senator, shows that he is
imbued too much with the principles
of tbe common herd to again adorn
that great conservator of tho interests
of organized capital known as the
"American House of Lords." The
idea that the people 'should be
allowed to express a preference as to
wbo should represent them in the U.
S. Senate, is not only supremely
absurd, but if allowed to become a
common thing would entirely do
away with the little love feasts and
distribution of money always con
nected with the election of U. S.

practically taking the bread out of

Rev. C. T. Clark, a member of the
South Georgia Methodist Conference,
writes from Tatnall county, Ga.:
"One year ago I was taken with
rheumatism, and became almost
helpless for over three mouths. All
tbe remedies used seemed to tail un
til 1 commenced to use Swift's
Specific. I have taken fivo bottles,
and am perfectly sound and well
again. I would have written sooner,
but wailed to see if tho cure was
permanent. And now I unhesitating
ly reccommend S. S. S. as a safe and
reliable remedy for rheumatism. I
have all confidence in its virtue."
It .HeTer Falls.
I have bad blood poison ever since
October, 1885, and obtained no re
lief from any treatment (and I tried
several) until I commenced taking
Swift's SpeciOc. In ono month I
felt as well eh I ever had. I also bad
a good appetite, and was entirely
free from the painB in my shoulder
aud head, which had tormented me
so long. Now all tbo sores and
swellings from my bead are gone.
