HUID. tITO U9 springs, and like a cat, upon which hot water has been poured, made it difficult to guess which way he would jump, then Democrats Dem-ocrats laid the burden of the failure to promote good times upon that broad, massive, convex con-vex deposit of adipose tissue, otherwise the buck of Grover Cleveland. Granted that they had a good excuse, it does not alter the fact that the Democratic party ought to give the incoming Republi can administration the same amount of rope that they asked for themselves four years ago. There are now three different policies before the people the Grover Cleveland Gold-Demo crat policy, the W. J. Bryan Silver-Popocrat policy and the W. McKinley International Bi- metalic Republican policy. Ac cording to the Democratic howl four vears atro. the finaufinl . o ' . . . . troubles of today are the cause of the first named administration, administra-tion, then why should all the blame be laid upon the party which was successful at the last election, merely .because the views of that party are not ex-actly ex-actly the same as those of the party which was defeated. It is nothing but pure demagogueisra to slur Mr. McKinley by aluding to the present financial troubles as "More McKinley Prosperity." All the Republican party asks is just exactly what the Democra tic party asked four years ago, namely, "Give us a little time." If, after a little time things don't go belter, then raise the howl Let the welkin ring with shouts for Bryan and no doubt he will be elected in the year 1900. In the meantime let us be consist ent, remembering that Mr. Mc Kinley is the choice of the people of the United States. suggest to the administration that it send the battle ship Texas to watch the coast from Key West to Galveston. That will give the Lone Star State an opportunity op-portunity to ship off its surplus of long haired fire eaters, and nt the same time to render a lasting last-ing servfee in behalf of humanity and civilization. In the hurley burley of political maneuvering there is one man who stands in bold relief as of a hish standard of self retirement. That raan is Fisher S. Harris of Salt Lake; he has been one of the sturdy fighters for Dem ocracy, always to the front in battle and always to the rear when the emoluments are disbursed. dis-bursed. He had clear sailing at Provo when the Hon. W. H. King was nominated for Cong ress, but he, in his fealty to party interests, thought Kinr the stronger man, and in spite of his numerous friends' wishes magnanimously retired, at the same tims making one of the best nominating speeches ever :ieard in Utah. He did the same in the present contest for senatorial honors, throwing his whole influence with that of his Lfriends in the Legislature and 7 ..

According to the latest tock quotations, the late effort of the bulls to inflate the value of certain cer-tain non-dividend paying stocks seems to have reached its limit! The Independent has still a few of Dean's Dehorning Pencils on hand, which it will cheerfully distribute among the members of the mining exchange for future use. Prevention is better than cure. R. G. Dun & Co 's weekly re-vie re-vie w is generally conceded to be pretty good authority on financial affairs. Populists and Demagogues, of course, main- tain that the Editor is a point blank liar or a natural idiot when he publishes an opinion tnat does not exuetly coincide with their own. Be that as it may, The Review of Jan. 9th gives some very interesting reasons for the present financial finan-cial crashes. It savs: The speculative failures, and the banking failures generally resulting from speculative entangleruents.cover more than half the increase in liabilities, liabili-ties, and caused many of the manufacturing manu-facturing failures which were most directly disasterous to industry. The political agitation was of such a character char-acter as to effect money markets profoundly, pro-foundly, and moreover to Inflame popular pop-ular distrust of financial institutions at the West and South, and, in consequence, con-sequence, the year has ended with banking failures of unusual numbei and magnitude in those sections. Many sound institutions have been forced to close by the unreasoning panic into which men were easily throwD who have listened for months to wild appeals to prejudice against capital. 15ut the most important disasters dis-asters were brought about by long continued violation of law and of every principle of sound banking in connection with speculative operations, opera-tions, or by excessive confidence and over production and buying in the latter part of 18!5, or early last year. It will not be an injury to business, but contribute greatly to its safety, to have these wrecks out of the way. To a man on a hill, able to take a clear comprehensive view of his surroundings, the above sounds like common sense. The depositors in the failing banks have of course suffered, and that is wrong, but it is a deplorable fact that the sms of one scoun drel always bring more sorrow to innocent people, than the charity of one hundred philanthropists philan-thropists brings happiness to the recipients.
