Correspondence ot the BEE. "
SALT LAKE , Feb. 25.
EDITOB BEE :
Our Governor has arrived and \ve
have had an opportunity to scan
him and learu of what stuff he is
made , and how he will likely suit.
Taken altogether he is a pleasant
appearing man , evidently disposed
to deal with matters pertaining to
his official duties as between "man
and man , " and not to draw the h'ne
between Mormon and Gentile to a
harsh distinction. His granting n
certificate of election to George Q.
Cannon rather riled the ire of some
of our Gentile friends , nd the 2ri-
bune pitched in , as though it had
the keeping of all the affairs of this
country. The trouble with the Tri
bune is that it is alwut as bigoted
and fanatical in one direction , as
the News is in the otber. .Nothing
pleases it except unieasonable hos
tility to the.Mormons ; neither does
it hesitate to go out of its way to
abuse any that don't see fit to think
as it does , and act as it dictates.
. However much it may claim to ,
it does not represent the more re
spectable Gentile element here
Business is very dull m town ,
while the mining camps , owing to
the remarkably mild and pleasant
winter , are active and prosperous.
In the city we have had four fail
ures withm the past two days. The
most noteworthy is the liquor firm
of Manstleld , Atchisou & Hteele.
The jtlnior member of the firm is ,
I believe , a relative of j our leading
It is predicted more will follow

fessed that the outlook is not prom
ising for a very speedy revival of

and only on the very best of securi

a little hard up even now , owing to
having money out on unavailable

Efforts have been made by other

While Omaha and Nebraska have
been shivering under a temperature
way below zero , we have enjoyed
one of the most delightful winters
known in the valley. At no time ,
has the thermometer indicated be
low 10 above zero , and that only for
a few hours ; while most of the time
the weather has been sunshiny and
At last the city is to have water
works. At least a portion of it.
No need here to send to St. ijouis
for an engineer. No huge reser
voirs or stand , pipes into which to
pump the water , No taxes to vote
requiring a two-thirds majority.
All we do is to buy the pipe and lay
it. The reservoir , a natural gorge
in tbe mountains near by , is fed by
a stream of pure "distilled dew from
heaven" cently dpspending from
their tops. The huge engines will
only be required , if at all , to pump
the water out of the reservoir.
Move your little "Burg" out here
and you will have no tinkering of
charters , no ejections for water bonds
which miscarry ; no bridge contro
versies to worry your minds and

\V 4sniXGTOxf March 1.
Several bills reported by the com-
mittee.on commercewere ) passed du
ring the morning hour , amougthem
the senate bill to promote economy
and efficiency in the marine hospi
At the expiration of the morning
hour the senate resumed considera-
icm of the tax and tariff bill.
Mr. Sherman opposed the tax and
tariff bill. During his speech he
iaid he did not believe an advance
on whisky would yield any more
evenue to the government , but
ivould give a bounty to holders of
whisky ; the very moment this bill
passed , the distillation of whisky
svould be stopped till the price react-
edSl.lo per gallon. He favored grant-
ng authority to the president and
ecretary of the treasury to suspend
ivork on public buildings or the ex-
euditure of any appropriation ,
, vhen in their judgment the public
nterest required it. Any increase
> f tobacco tax would be treating
dealers badly , as remonstrances
ivere before the Senate against such
ncrease , and should be heeded ,
lougress had fixed this tax two
, 'cara ago , and should not interfere
.vith it again now. He opposed
he whole internal revenue 'system ,
and had hoped Congress at the pres
ent session would wipe out the
whole system of stamp taxes , leav-
ng only the tax on whisky and to
bacco. He favored the tax on tea
and coffee , and said if that tax had
not been taken off we would have
had no trouble with our finances.
Mr. Merrill , of Vermont , spoke in
'avor of the bill.
Messrs. Scott and Frelinghuysen
Mr. Sargent , from the committee
n conference on the legislative , ju
dicial and executive appropriation ,
eported that the committee had
ieen unable to agree , and askea for
a new conference. Granted.
Mr. Johnston submitted an
mendment to the tariff bill so as
o provide that an increase of tax
m tobacco shall only apply to tobac-
o manufactured after the passage
if this act.
Mr. Bogy opposed the bill , and
: aid the object of it was to raise
money for tbe sinking fund. If the
mrrent receipts were properly ex
pended there would be no need of
currency at the end of the fiscal
year ; ho was not willing to tax the
people of this country for the pur
pose of keeping out that fund.
There was much prostration in busi
ness , and it was not wise to impose
additional taxes now. Why was it
he money appropriated to pay the
puplicdebt had not been applied to
this sinking fund ? He did all Jn
his power to cut down the appropri
ations for the Indian bureau and for
the army last week , and failed in
every particular'but one.
Mr. Thurmau said it was assumed
this bill would Increase the revenue
f the government not less than
$30,000,000. It would be admitted
on all hanjjs'th'atno siicli tax would
be levied unless there" was an oyer-
uling necessity for it. To impose
inch taxation , unless there was an
iverrullug neceasjty for It , would be
Ittle less than crime , it had not
been demonstrated to his batisfac-
ioii that the receipts of the govern
ment-would not meet current ex
penses. ' ' The Senator who had
charge of this bill said the national
honor was involved in keeping the
sinking fund intaot. I do not agree
with him there , and hope to show
the Senate that the sinking fund
provision was no partof the contract
between the government and its
creditors , therefore the honor of the
government \vaa not Involved in
keeping that fund Intact ; the object
of that fund was to secure a reduc
tion of the debt at the rate of one
per cent per annum. The law was
passed in 1862 , and from that time
untiLJ874 , a period of twelve years ,
more than twelve per cent , of the
debt Had been paid ; the govern *
ment had niofe than compiled with
the law. He favored a reduction
of the army to fifteen thousand
men , which , would save $10,000-
000 per annum j thp pquntry for
merly had an army of 9,000 men ,
and he believed an army that size
could do all required , on one-halt
the expense ; the navy might be
spared , and that would save proba
bly $15,000,000 annually j thp govr
ernment 'could dispense with 'one
half of Its ships and get along Just
as well as it does now ; and in con
clusion he said the most rigid econ
omy must ' ba practlped by thp gpy *
ernment 'and by the people'of the
country before tue end of the pres
ent troubles would be reached.
The house again went into com
mittee of the whole on the sundry
civil appropriation bill , Mr. Hoskins
in the chair. * .
A discussion 'took place on the
Item for the support In the insane
asylum o'f the District of Columbia ,
of the insane of the army and. navy
who have become insane from
causes arising during their service
withm three years after ' leaving tle
A motion was made to amend the
paragraph so as to admit all persons
who nave become insane since the
entry to the service.
The amendment was strenuously
urged by Butler , of Mass. , and re
sisted by Garfield and Hale , of Me. ,
on the ground that men who had
served in the volunter service and
might subsequently become Insane ,
should be treated In the states where
In the course of the discussion
Butler cast a fling at the committee
on appropriations as being willing
to buy pictures at $25,000 each and
not willing to admit insane soldiers
Into the government hospital ,
Mr. Hale , of Maine , asjied B Uer
who it wasthatbad offered a resolu
tion directing the committee to buy
s picture "The Signing of the
Emancipation rroclamatlon , "
Mr. Butler said be had , but had
not meant to starve and filch it out
of Jnsane soldiers.
Mr. Hale You -wanted us to buy
the picture , and the house went
back on you. Do not pup your bad
rubbish pn the appropriation com
mittee when you sent it there.
Mr. Butler Pardcn me ; you
were not directed to report It.
Mr. Baler-We were directed to
take steps to buy the picture.
Sir. Butler } t pever occurred to
me'that'you were goliig to take the
cost of it out of the insane soldiers.
This is not economy ; it is not nig.
gardness ; it is simply sheer savage
barbarity , nothing more , nothing
less. The amendment was agreed
On motion of Garfield , of Ohio ,
an item of $850 was inserted for the
relief of the suffering poor of the
District of Columbia.
Quite a long and noisy discussion
took place over an item appropjiat-
ing § 150,000 for the conversion and
rifling of heavy guns , and allowing
an expenditure for the same pur
pose of another ? 100,000 out of the
former appropriations. The last
portion of the paragraph was event
ually struck out.
The item of $385,000 for expenses
of the signal service being under
discussion , and Mr. Waddel , of
Maine , having moved to Increase it
by adding$30,000 for the extension
of the sei'vice to the Atlantic coast
south of Cape Hatteras , Mr. Garfield -
field warned tbe friends of the ser
vice of the danger of making
it so costly ; that there will
be a reaction against it. It hade
o mmenced a few years ago with
an appropriation of $25,000 ; had
then gone to $50,000 ; then to $100-
OUO ; then to $200,000 ; and now the
jtem In this bill was $385,000 , which
really did not represent haltt the
cost of the system , the pay , subsist
ence , &c. , of the signal service corps
coming out of tbe appropriation for
the army. If it went on increasing
in the same degree its cost next
year would be a million of dollars.
Mr. Butler , of Massachusetts
What if it be ? The single steam
ship saved would pay the whole
cost of thesignalservice , and Iwant
to see the service extended in the
interest of the highest economy.
Mr. Waddell's amendment was
Mr. Hunter moved to add to the
signal service a system for the ob
servation in regard to the public
health , and said that Gen. Myers ,
the head of the bureau , was in fa
vor of it.
Mr. Garfield I have no doubt of
it. The enthusiasm of Gen. Myers
was the most dangerous element
about the whole thing.
Mr. Hunter's motion was rejected.
