The New York Parade.
Nr.w YoiiKOct.27. The business men's parade -
ado tills afternoon was begun and ended under
continuous rain fall. The streets were very
Disagreeable for marching. The start was
jnade at 1 :80 : from the Stevens house. Be
hind mounted police rode Grand Marshal
Xianders. Next came the Seventh regiment
band , loading COO men from the Produce nnei
Maratimo Exchange clubs , all bearing Haunt
ing handkerchiefs. Next came the Lawyers
Cleveland and Thurman club , ! )50 ) strong ,
headed by Frederick K. Condort and Gen
eral Barlow. The sidewalks along Broad
way on both sides were almost impassible ,
notwithstanding the rains. The buildings
along the route wore filled with people. The
Youmr Men's Independent club , 150 strong ,
followed the lawyers' club. The Wino ami
Spirits Trader's ' club turned out 100 strong ,
They presented a novel spectacle , ns they all
wore butiduunas. One company in the par-
nde carried umbrellas , on each of which wa s
mounted a small stuffed rooster. The
Cotton Exchange club , with mu
sic nnd ! . ' 50 men , with bandannas
fell in line at Beaver street. The other clubs
in line were the coal dealers' club , stock
exchange club , auxiliary stock club , con

As the parade started rain came down will
Increased violence. Moro umbrellas went
tip and the line was fully canopied. A
ludicrous result of the ruin was that Instead
of the.usual command , "Forward , " the lead
crs cried out "Swill , " and when halting time
came the order "Stop Swilling" would ge
forth. The delegations massed in the side
ptreets further up Broadway waited patlentlj
to full in nnd cheered , too. Everything demo
cratlc which the column encountered wa ;
cheered , and everything republican wa-
greeted with groans. There was a genera
cessation of music and cheers when the No
York hotel wus reached , where Mrs. .lame ;
O. Blulno lies dangerously ill.
The largest crowd reviewing Stone was n1
Fourteenth street , and the enthusiasm waa
intense. Two blocks higher the banner ol
the national republican headquarters , foi
which the moving muss reserved its fund ol
ffroans and hisses , floated to nnd fro. Ho-
, bublican spectators were massed all aloii
the block. Groans nnd cheers for Clove-
Jand and Harrison , cries of "No free trade , "
"No free whisky" and "No Chinese" rose on
every hide , and mingled in a common roar.
Coming out upon the magnificent square
the parading thousands saw thu reviewing
ptand , an elaborately trimmed structure ,
.rising above their umbrellas. The prcsi-
Locnt's box was covered by nn awning. The
Lcrowd In the converging streets bailies des

Isaac H. Reed awaited him thorp.
Hewitt came later. President Clovp
loud , who had been talking with the other's ,
turned and greeted htm as ho entered.
Mayor Hewitt advanced to Mr. Grant , his
opponent , and said : "We'll have to shake
.bands . , Mr. Grant , across the president , not
across tbo bloody chasm. " The head ot the
procession reached the reviewing stand at
8:30. :
8:30.Mrs. . Cleveland Is said to have witnessed
the affair from a window in the Fifth avenue
hotel , opposite where the president stood.
iThe utmost enthusiasm prevailed In the
Tanks. Thcproduco exchange cried , "Grover ,
Grover , he's gota walkover. " The auxilliary
Block exchange chanted , "Four , four , foui
years more. " The Columbia college and
.university students fired their college yells
at the president The insurance men's
banner was Inscribed , "Wo don't ' insure free
vrhisky. " The metal supply dealers cheered :
- "Don't , don't , don't bo afraid ; tariff reform
Is not free trade. " The wool men had a load

Jllaluo's injunction "to study history , " am
nnd in doing so had examined that gentle
plan's position in relation to American poll
jtics. In giving the result of his research hi
'did so in the following lunguugn :
"Whatever rncorel Blaine has made tipoi

ihat it will surely reap good results. The
democrats have nothing lo say on th6 sub-
loot , and If they bait it Is doubtful Whether
; hcy could bo hoard through the thick cloud
of gloom which envelopes them. About
tholr headquarters Lord Sackvillo's name Is
only spoken in whispers , and It is as much
as his life Is worth for an Englishman to set
his foot-within the bourbon doors. If they
really over thought that Cleveland had n
chance for ro-clcctloir , they think so no more.
A reporter sought thin morning the senti
ments of a number of citizens on the subject
which Is just at present paramount in the
minds of the English speaking people on both
sides of the ocean. There was great unanim
ity in the opinions given , nil coinciding with
that given above. The British consul ,
Colonel Sadler , smiled broadly when up-
preached by u reporter , but said ho must de
cline to bo Interviewed on the subject , as it
would not bo proper for him to express an
opinion on such a matter.
A scheme dovisoU by the democratic county
campaign committee to affect the republican
vote In this city was effectually knocked In
the head to-day. Some days ago several
democratic leaders petitioned the election
commissioners to divide up several
voting precincts whore they claimed
the registration wus so heavy that
all would not bo nblo to vote. A notable fea
ture of the mutter wus Unit the precincts in
question nro in the strongest republican
wards In thu city. The registration in nona
of the precincts was over ( < 00 , and It was
asserted by all who hud had any experience
that there would be no difllculty whatever in
polling this number of votes In the course of
the day. Were the precincts divided nt this
late day , when everybody supposed their
registration troubles were over , it would un
doubtedly result Irt the disqualification of
a large number of republican voters , who ,
not knowing the necessity for another regis
tration , or not bearing of the division , would
bo unable , under our city election law , to
vote. The election commissioners this after
noon decided that they could not make any
change In the precincts except on tbo basis
ot the votes of last November.
The IndlaiiapoliH Demonstration.
IXDiANAfous , Oct. 27. A delegation ol
eighty young ladles , members of the Carrie
Harrison club of Oxford female college ,
Ohio , came to this city to-dny , under escort ol
President Foyo Walker , to pay their respects
to Mrs. Harrison , whoso father , Hev. Dr ,
Scott , founded the school. They marched
out to the Harrison residence and were cor
dially received. General Harrison responded
briefly aud informally to their address , thank
ing them for the visit.
The parade of railroad men to-night was
witnessed by ! 20,000 peoule. Clubs composed
of railroad employes from Terre Haute ,
Richmond , Logmisport nnd New Albany , to
gether with local organizations , composed
the parade and made a line display. Several
of the transparencies referred to Sackvillo
West , and elicited considerable applause and
laughter. Tomllnson hall was crowded to
its utmost capacity , nnel when General
Harrison appeared ho was greeted by a pro
longed outburst of enthusiastic cheering.
The vast audience arose and set up an Indes
cribable uproar with drums and horns , while
nearly a thousand lanterns were swung in
tbo air. The demonstration was the most
notable ono of the campaign and lasted
fifteen minutes.
To-night's speech was tbo seventy-ninth
General Harrison has mndo during the cam
paign , and will probably bo the last. He
said in part : "My friends , the Railroad He-
publican clubs of Indiana. I am hero to
night not to speak on any political topic.but to
express , if I can , the deep and earnest thank
fulness I feel toward you who have shown so
much kindness and confidence in me. Very
early in the campaign there were these who
sought to make a breach between me and
you. [ A voice , "Thoy did not do it. " ] You
did not wait for my .answer. [ Cheers. ]
And time anel again I have wit
nessed your faith that my disposition
toward you and the men who toll for a living
wus ono of friendliness nnd tlat the princi
ples I represented and have always ad
vocated were these that promoted the true
Interest of the workingmen of America.
[ Applause. ] I have always believed and
bold that the pros ) > erity of the country , the
permanency of its institutions , and social
order , all depended upon , our pursuing such
a policy in- our legislation that wo should
have in America a class of workingmen
earning adequate wages thai would briny
comfort , into their homos and maintain
hope in their hearts. [ Great cheering. ] A
despairing man , a man out bf whoso horizon
the star of hope has gone , is not a safe citi
zen in a republic. Therefore I would preserve -
serve against unfriendly competition the
highest possible scale of wages to our work
ing people. " [ Great applause. ]
Alter speaking in eulogy of the intelli
gence , enterprise and fidelity of the railroad
men , the general thanked thorn heartily for
the great demonstration , and retired amid
tremendous cheers.
Blniiie'n Speech in Newark.
NEWARK , Oct. 27. James G. Blainc
spoke in the Belleville avenue rink to-night
to nn audience of 4,000 people. In the course
of his speech ho reverted to the British min
ister's letter , and said :
"From the beginning of the campaign it
has been obvious that England was taking
an extraordinary interest in the election ol
Mr. Cleveland. The London papers , which
at first spoke of it with extraordinary frank
ness , finding it was embarrassing tholi
friends on this side ot the ocean , subdued
their tone , and the democratic pa
pcrs had actually begun to assert
that the British aristocracy were in faol
taking sides with the republican party , when
just at this stage of the game out comes the
letter of the British minister , nnd now what
do the democrats dot At first they wanteel
to deny it altogether , but Mr. West Is a
frank and honorable man , and come out
squarely anel said that ho had written the
letter. Now the democrats e-omo out with
imprecations , almost with curses , upon the
head of the unfortunate man in California
who provoked the letter. They say lie is
fraud , villain , forger and a republican in
disguise , and that there never was such a
man. But , in the name of common sense ,
what has that to do with
the British minister's letter ? Supposing
they prove this letter to bo gotten up by a
republican as u decoy , and for political affect ,
that docs not effect in any way the letter ol
the British minister. That letter from Cali
fornia would never have hurt the democratic
party or the British minister if the latter had
not answered it. | Cheers. ] Possibly this
may have been written for a purpose. I know
nothing about It whatever , but thn whole
point of the mutter is that it calls from Mr.
West his true views of the sentiments of En
gland upon tills contest , and we may dismiss
the other question altogether from our minds
as to what it wus that may have called it out ,
"But theiro is moro , and this is why I in
troduced the subject. I see that Mr. Thur-
man , in his speech yestenlny ; seems foi
the first time to have heard something of the
letter , and considers it a republican plot ,
and intimates that it was first brought out
by mo in my address nt Detroit. I loft Detroit -
troit last Monday and come to Buffalo , nnd
there hoard of the letter for the flrst time.
I discredited it. The next day , however , 1
saw the whole letter nnd also an interview
with Mr. Bayiird , ratlirr regretting the
letter , I must say , but apparently not ques
tioning a word of it. The next morn
incr I came to New York nuel
there read another interview witl ;
Bayard , and after I had bcei :
in Now York all day I" spoke to Madison
Square Garden uftur the whole press of Now
York had fully discussed the subject of tin
letter- But now Mr. Thurman says ho dls
covers and , of course , the whole work
should stand still when Mr. Thurman snys he
discovers the remarkable coincidence 01
that letter and my apccch to the citizens ol
Now * oru City , and Mr. Thurninn quote *
something which ho thinks is very funn.i
from Samuel Wiiller. Now. the only thin !
anyway remarkable about 'Mr. Thunnan'i
humor is the attempt by Mr. Thurman to bf
humorous ,
"Well , gentlemen. It bothers them a gooi
deal , but the sorloum side of it is the soriou :
warning it gives to the people of the Unltee
States of thn deep and profound in
tcrest which the British nation takei
in this elucikm. Gentlemen , we havi
tha largest market In the world , am
the most varied. We make it a great honv
market , vrhilo the great ambition of Enxlam
is that the tariff by which wo do this shouli
bo broken down , and that in great part' i
may be made her.inarkot. The question t
be doolacd by this election is whether w
hall .maintain this market for nurpecplfl , or
by n reduction of the tariff , invite- the pro
elucts of other countries to oomc la and toY
away Ivrguiy th right sfid privilege of tU
Amjrlcan producer to manufacture .for Iho
markets of America. I do not Intend to say
a word , personally , of Mr. Cleveland. I
have spoken of his public nets quite freely.
But of Mr. Harrison I can nnd will speak.
There has been lately nn attempt on
the part of tbo democrats to call him the
n grandson of his grandfather. A man is ,
after all , to bo judged by what ho is hlmsolf.
Benjamin Harrison went into the practice of
law n poor man , and wrought his way up
against obstacles with so much perseverance
and Industry that ho stands at the head of
the bar In Indiana to-day. Ho conducted
himself with conspicuous gallantry on the
field of battle , winning praise of that great
soldier , whose pruiso was Itself n title to
greatness Ulysses S. Grant. Ho has shown
himself n wise statesman in the United
States senate , und shown hlmsolf a wise
candidate. This is the man himself , and
I say that among his opponents there
Is no man but who would bo proud of such nn
ancestry as General Harrison. But his best
claim Is his own merit. And while I honor
General Harrison for himself , I say there Is
no man living possesseel of proper feelings
and worthy to bo called a man who could
feel anything less than pride in that long line
of Illustrious ancestors. "

PAULS , Oct. 27. [ Ne\ , York Herald Cable
Special to Tin : ] The European
Herald made another sensation this week by
publishing the advance sheets of General
Sheridan's memoir "From Gravclotto tc
Sedan. " The Herald had a wide circulation
among the officers of the French army
Thursday and in reply to the inquiries of n
Herald correspondent Marshal MacMalion ,
who was found nt his Chateau la Forot in
the Lolret after reading Sheridan's momoii
carefully , replied : "It would bo unfair to
criticise Sheridan's memoir from Grave
lotto to Sedan * from a mili
tary point of view ns Sheridan
himself expressly states in it that ho doc ;
not pretend to describe the battle. So the
only point that occurs to mo is to explain
that it wus , of course , for political , not mili
tary reasons , that the army under my com
maud inarched northward along the Belgian
frontier to relieve Mctz , and , as Sheridan
says , Bismarck's exclamation when lie heard
of it was exact , namely , 'It cannot bo uc
counted for unless it is brought about by the
political situation In France. ' " Marshal
McMuhon is still in fine , healthy spirits. He
rides about the woods with ills daughter. Ho
said : "Sheridan's memoir is ono of the mosl
interesting little monograph personal remin
iscences I have read In a long time.
The Herald correspondent also called upon
General Suttssler , governor of Paris. Gen
eral Saussler said : "I take great interest in
the memoirs of Sheridan as published in the
Herald , but I feel that it would bo unwise
and ill-timed for me to make any comuicnl
upon them. The events of the late war an
still too recent and the wounds loft are stll
too sore for an impartial Judgment. General
Sheridan , as an American , was iiblo to relate
what ho witnessed , dispassionately. I , as'r
Frenchman , could hardly bo expected te
do so. "
General Marquis do Gallfet , who is the
flrst cavalry general of tbo Frencl
army to-day , nnd is to France
what General Sheridan was to America
spoke of the memoir as an interesting per
sonnl reminiscence but refrained from ex
pressing any opinion upon them from a mill
tary point of view , as the memoirs them
selves do not pretend to give a military story
of the events , but merely descriptions oi
scenes and incidents ; of persons rather than
of hntoripal facts. "
Admiral Count O'Ncil , inspector of'tor
pedoes of the French navy , said : "Grave-
lotto is a field of which every Frenchman is
proud. Both sides claim it ns a vieitory
The account given by the late ox-General

Sheridan says the Pomeranians cleared all

Special to Tin : BEI : . ! The proposed income
tax creates qulto a fever of excitement among
foreigners and all who have an Income over
$100 u year , but the great masses of the people
the peasantry aud workmen all favor It
and it Is to win popularity with these classes ,
who are a very Important class in a plebiscite
or general election , that Flouuot proposes a
bill. In an interview with a Herald corre
spondent M. do Cassagnae thought it impos
sible to say what will bo the result of the
project for a tux on incomes until the measure
shall be submitted to the chamber. In the
discussion which will take place before any
law can bo passed on the subject , the ques
tion may assume quite a different form.
The project may be even entirely aban
doned. M. Guyot , one of the Urst political
economists In France , said he was strongly
opposed to putting a tux on Incomes. He
thought it was interfering with the personal
liberties of citizens to pry into their private
fortunes. Furthermore , the measure seemed
to him calculated to estrange foreigners from
France. Under the existing law a man paid
a separate tax on each piece of property. II
a new law were passed ho would pay one tas
on the combined valuation. Ho was uncer
tain whether the scheme would ever bo real
ized. Felix Pyatt , a deputy and an ex-mem
bor of the commune , was very bitter uboul
the proposed income tax. Ho said It was t
concession of the government to the radicals
and to the labor party inasmuch as it aimed
at foreign worklngmcn. Ho feared the mcas
uro would become u law and summed up In ;
opinion on its merits as follows : "To pas'
such a law at tills time Is the hcighth of ab
stirdity. Wo are making every effort to in
sure the success of an international exhibl
tion next year and on the very eve of its in
auguration we calmly establish a system 01
vexation , ospioijago and taxation againsl
those very strangers upon whom wo count it
the carrying out of our great enterprise
Some people may call this statesman
ship. I give It quite a different name. The
law , if passed , will accomplish nothing in thi
way of ridding us of dangerous or undesirable
sirablo foreigners. That class of stranger :
will turn up their noses at such a petty at
tempt to check their misdoings. On tin
other hand the vastly largo class of estimable
foreigners who hvo hero quietly and nit
manfully in the commercial development ol
France , wll | bo seriously and needlessly an
noyed by this foolish aud harmful legislu
lation. "
A call at the British embassy showed thai
the English residents in Paris have not taker
the matter seriously to heart. One of the at
laches said ho did not bcliovo the project
would over become a law.
At the American legation Mr. Vlgnaud
charge d'affaires , expressed the following
opinion : "If the law is passed it will make
a considerable difference in ttie number ol
Americans who will take up their residence
in Franco. Still that time is at least
some months distant. For my part I have tic
idea that the chamber will bo unwise cnougt
to pass such a law. Not that the law u
anyway unjust to strangers , Inasmuch as
Frenchuen nro eeiually included in its pro
visions , out the people of Franco have vorj
strong objections to having the government

The mnntlo of the llrst Kmpcror William's
popularity seems to have fallen upon his
grand-son , Unter den Linden was crowded
on Sunday last , while the sldowalks weto
lined four and live deep , with Berllners
anxious for a gllmpso of their emperor , who
had reached Potsdam the day boforc. Hero
they remained on the lookout for the dark
green coupe and Its palrof blooded horses for
several hours , only to return homo disap
The Berllners nro dallghtcd to hear that
the emperor Is to visit the chancellor on his
way to Hamburg. They look upon It not
only as a touching tribute to the personal
nnd statesmanlike qualities of his grand
father's life-long friends , servant nnd ad-
visorbut ; as a further guarantee that the line
of policy already marked out will bo
adhered to.
The Cunltz memoirs , Berlin's literary
sensation of to-day , are the memoirs
of Huron von Cunitz , minister of
foreign affairs , and a cabinet min-
Uter during the reign of Frederick
William II. They have just been published
and contain one short but Interesting chapter
on the possibility of war between Kussiu and
Prussia. Cunltz , who hud been a lieutenant
general in the army , calls attention to the
fact that Prussia's frontier toward Russia is
so exposed that two Russian armies could
overrun all Prussia beyond the Vistula
before Prussia could bo put in n
posture of dofenso. The Seven Years
war showed , however , that in a long
war Prussia could bo successfully defended
agulnst her northern neighbor. Later , In
the march back from France through Ger
many in 1314 , as well as in the Polish war of
1S ° 0 , the Russian ranks wore depleted by
desertion. This was caused , CunlU thinks ,
by the harsh treatment to which the Russian
soldier is subjected , and would occur again.
The artillery manoeuvres at Coblintz ,
recently , in the presence of Count Waldcrsee ,
Moltko's successor , cost u largo sum of
money. In addition to a full division of the
garrison , four pioneer and four Hold artillery
regiments were routed. No newspaper corre
spondents were allowed within the cordon of
sentries furnished by u whole butullion , nor
oflleers not especially detailed for service
were allowed to come within lines as specta
tors. A fort garrisoned by two companies of
pioneers was first bombarded and then
stormed. The now fifteen and twenty-four
centimeter siege guns worked to perfection.
The new lire balls , ten feet in diameter , that
shed light on the columns of the enemy ad
vancing under cover of the night , answered
their purpose splendidly. They burnt three
quarters of a minute , and illuminated
an area of one square mile. It wus
curious while they burned to watch the sap
pers of the supposed enemy , who nad been at
work with great steel shears cutting through
the wire with which the nbuttls were inter
laced. As the light blazed out whole rows
might be seen stretched out full length upon
the ground , perfectly motionless , to escape
the deadly effects of the Uro poured from the
parapet.Vlicn tbo light died away they re
sumed their silent work. All the men were
armed and equipped ns in actual warfare and
the ammunition waguns carried the regula
tion weight of ammunition from the sur
rounding villages. Olio hundred and sixty
farmers' wagons aud 1,000 , peasants had been
requisitioned requisirt is the Gorman word

received in hard cash for the services of the

I was shown a copy of n letter this morn.
Ing which Is significant. The letter roferroel
to was written by an Unghshiunn In London
to Sir Charles Tuppor. It first congratulates
him upon the moderation of the language )
used by him in referring to the United
Status , in which the writer has largo vested
Interests , in his speech in Shontod , ami then
says that the writer ban neon another letter
written by Mr. to Mr. Joseph
Chamberlain , in which Mr. Kndlcott assures
the hitter's ' special envoy that after Ihe dom
ing election , and in spite of tbo retaliation
message' , further negotiations will bo begun
by this country towards the settlement ot the
fisheries dispute. This would seem to Indl
cato that the retaliation message was bun
combe , in spite of the assurance of Senator
Morgan to the contrary.
All sorts of rumors nro utloat ns to the ac
tion of the administration with reference to
the bad break of Lord Sonkvllle. The Now
York Herald to-day hud an article from its
Washington correspondent In which it was
intimated that Information had been re
ceived from Secretary Bayard to the effect
that the whole mutter had been called to the
attention of the Britisti authorities through
Minister Phclps ami the dispatches from
London would Indicate that Mr. Phclps lias
had some telegraphic instructions on ttio
subject , ns ho Is re-ported to have hud an interview -
terview with Lord Salisbury yesterday.
Secretary Buyard declined to-day to nlllrm
or elcny the New York Herald's story ,
but ho said that the administration
would do nil that was proper and
necessary under the circumstances. It is
leurned on the very best authority that the
correspondence between Lord Suckvillo and
the California Briton , together with Lord
Suekviile's remarks on the subject , printed
in the Now York papers , and an abstract of
the conversation between Ills lordship and
Secretary Bayard , were prepared and sent
to Minister Phclps to-day , with instructions
to present the whole cane to the homo
authorities In London. A gentlemen , form
erly very prominent in the state department ,
wus asked by your correspondent what such
action as this could mean , and whether It
would bo followed u.v the absolute recall of
of the minister. Ho replied that it might
lead to his recall or simply to a censure from
the British home olllce. In either event
Lord Sackvillo will not bo likely
to stay here. It is the cnrrent
belief of all Englishmen now in Washington ,
who know something of the diplomatic af
fairs of that country , that his lordship will
retire from the diplomatic survieo entirely ,
but the recall of the minister docs not undo
the harm. Ho has shown that British sym
pathy is entirely with the present adminis
tration , and the voters of this country who
hud the wool pulled over their eyes , uud who
have been persistently told that the extruota
printed from Kngllsh papers were republican
concoctions , now see that the British njow -
papers were simply voicing the sentiments
which exist among the mombera of the
British government , and they wilt doubtless
govern themselves accordingly. Nothing has
occurred In the administration which has
created half the excitement of this incident.
Secretary Bayard has come in for his stouro
of abuse , too.
When the president read the Interview of
his sceiretary of state , which was telegraphed
from his homo in Delaware , Mr. Cleveland
forgot for the moment that hewnschiof
magistrate of 00,000,000 people and became
once more the every day citizen that ho used
to bo before ho was elected mayor of Buffalo.
The language which he used in commenting
upon the secretary's interview WHS snbllmo
In.its picturesqucncss , but it is said that it
was so sulphurous that the clones nnd em
ployes in the white house had difllculty in
breathing for some moments after the presi
dent had expressed his feol'ngs. ' The at
tempt to show that the letter was drawn out
by a trick will not have the duaircd effect.
There is no doubt whatever that Lord Suclt-
ville wrote the now celebrated letter , and it
cannot bo doubted that the sentiments In
expressed therein were his honest , candid
convictions. Pennv S. HEATU.

population of the territory at " 10,000 , an in
crease of 00,000 slnco 1880. The munufaa-
luring industries of the state are In a satis
factory condition , and , taken as a whole , the
year bus been a progressive and prosperous
one for Utah. Owing to the ) unusual light
rainfall during the growing season , dry
farming bus not been a success , but irri
gated land bus produced abundantly. In the of his remarks upon tne Mormon
question , the governor says :
"Nothing can Justify the despotism of the
Mormon political system to the people who
have known ami appreciate the blessings of
rt free government. The word of the priest
hood Is to the Mormon people ) the command
of God , not only in matters of faith and
morals , but in all civil , political and commer
cial affairs. This pricsthoood not only rules
the church , but the territory.
Pending n settlement of the question of ad
mitting Utah into ttio union , the governor
recommends the appointment by congress of
a committee with full authority to make a
complete and thorough investigation of thu
civil as well ns religious conditions hereto
