' 4 : THE SALT LAKE TIMES, y TUESDAY EVENING, APRIL1 it 1890. ;s tantamount to a declaration tliat he will not stand as a candidate for mayor of Now Vork city next fall. Th county democracy, in its life and death light against Tammany, rejoices at the panic in the ranks of the sachems. Its members quietly bide their time, and the honest men of all parties are jubilant over the. oncoming Ked Sea overthrow of the forty thieves in the hitherto worst governed city in the world. It will be a muuicipal rather than a party fight and victory in its filial issue. IN JiKW YORK. Tammany braves in New York are hav-ing a regular sun-danc- e. Numbers of them are already swingiug on hooks af-fixed by the grand jury, ami others are shivering in their moccneius, expecting a hoist at any moment. Never, since the days of Tweed, have the corruptionists been so shaken by honest dynamite ex-plosions as ut present. The members of the rotten clique, which for years nestled under the eaves of Tammany, are loudly crying to their more honest associates, "Help me, Cassius, or I sink." Flower, in congress, ia vociferously called on to come to the rescue. His response is: "I have only one ambition, and thnt is to be a member of the majority in a demo-cratic house of representatives.'' This SALT LAKE EYENING TIMES. THE TIMES PUBLISHING COMPANY.' T. A.

The men thus far appointed to the force are waking good otlicers. Many of ' them have fought valiantly for the , Liberal cause, and they certaiDly should receive as lib-eral pay as did undor the Mormon government. To reduce their pay iu order to increase it is something that they can't understand nor appreci-ate. They don't care to have their pay increased iu that way, and the city coun-cil will lind that it' is making a serious niistake. False economy is tho most costly thing that can be indulged in. Mayor Suott, speaking for himself and the city council, says iu reply to a Times article that the council does not propose to reduce the pay of the police ; force, but "to carry out the plan of an increase of salaries that has been in vogue here and elsewhere iu the "cou-ntry." In accordance with this idea the plan is to pay $80 per month for the first year's service and gradually raite the salary. This plan may bo all well enough in the old cities of the east wnere living is much cheaper than it is in Salt Lake. While it is true that under the old schedule policemen re-ceived salaries running up to $1200 per year, depending on their length of ser-yic- e, it should be borne in mind that under the old regime the officers did not have to buy uniforms. The cost of their clothing now foots up 6150 per year. It should also be remem-bered that rents are now double and triple what they formerly were, and as nearly all the policemen are men of fam-ily, this extra expense draws heavily on their purse. Up to within two or three years ago, under the Mormon rule, t when living expenses were comparatively i light, the pay of the police ran from 8100 to 1125. The officers then traveled in pairs, thus making two policemen equal Kehp your eye on Tur, Tim us. It pro-poses to keep pace with the rapid growth ' of Salt Lakb City. Thk Times is a newspaper. A r careful examination of the paper will convince any intelligent person of that fact.

SEARS & CO. officers, will force them to the conclu-sion that offenses involving apparent or real disobedience to orders, originate oftener with officials than with men in the ranks. An instance is recalled to mind where most serious consequences would have resulted from the impulsive, but wrongful act of an officer, had military regulations been strictly udhered to. A German ollicer of the line, finely educated, and a splendid swordsman, but of quick and fractious temper, irritated at the blundering manner tn which his nien on drill obeyed orders, made a uuddeu rush at them with his drawn sword. In-stantly, and without a thought except of self defense, he was met by half a dozen levelled muskets with lixed bayonets from the men more directly threatened. Infuriated beyond measure he dismissed the company and tiled charges against the men for mutiny, an offenso, in titne of war, punishable with death. The colonel of the regiment, an old army ollicer, rigid as an iceberg in the matter of discipline, approved the arrest and was intending to have the prisoners tried by court martial. A few days elapsed and sober second thought sufficed to present the mutter in a different light But the old veteran would not go back on his military resolution. Ho was de-tailed to command the military district he was in, and the writer was temporar-ily in command of the regiment. One of his first acts was to visit the guard bouse and set all of these true men and good soldiers who had fought through long years under the black Hag at lib-erty. The strict letter of military law would, at least, have sent the poor fel-lows to the Dry Tortugas for a number of years, with forfeiture of pay and dis-graceful dismissal from the service. THK ARMY ANI NAVY. The country will await with some the result of the court martial in the case of Lieutenant Steele, charged with abusing, by word and blow, Private Wild of the troop uuder his command. The McCalla aud llealy cases of investigation tit New York and San Franrisco show that attention is be-ing called to the discipline of the nrmy and navy. Always and ever, iu both thet active departments, where strict discipline and almost despotic authority are necessary, there will be found officers unfitted to command, and men of the rank and tile as poorly qualified to obey. Military regulations aim to do justice to ail, but the best of fail in the presence of human imperfection and depravity. Especially is this true, when the devil of whisky enters and takes possession of officer or man. The nrmy is a sovere training school even in time of war, when active service and personal risk and danger occupy the attention and bring men of the ranks and officers of tho line nearer to a common level and to a more fraternal feeling. But tie ex-perience and observation of the thou-sands of men who in the Itist war served in the ranks ' as well as commissioned. !' GovKWtoK HiLL of New York has ve-toed tho Saston ballot, jufurm toll, lie is one of those moss back bourbons who doesn't believe in reform, especially of the ballot. Ho has more confidence in the old loose methods which provide so many avenues of fraud.- On the other hnud, Grovcr Cleveland is in favor of reforms of all kinds, and has the inde-pendence to speak his mind freely on all mutters relating thereto. The marked difference in the attitude of these two men, who are political rival, is rather significant. CJ rover Cleveland is a man who believea in principle rather than in party, and although he will probably never be president of the United Slates again, he will always be held in high es-teem by the d men of both parties. On the other hand, Hill is a ttriot partisan a man who believes in party first, hist, and all the time, whether right or wrong. He is the friend of the politician, of the office-seeke- and of the plunder grabber. The Times appears today as a eight page paper, which wil) be its regular size from this date. Further improvements will be made In a few days. Thb waTestate-aalos'- in tiult Lake during the month of March amounted to 85,281,621. At this rate the sales for 1890 will foot up considerably over The probability is that the monthly sales will largely exceed the month of March from now until Decem-ber. AMIfcE.UEXTS. "suzktte" at tub opera hooi. The fame of the "Bostonians" has not been overrated, and those who failed to hear them last night miesed one of tha best operatic performances that has been given in this city for a long time. "Su- - zette" is essentially comic, and the music is bright, ctifep and brilliant. It is a charming little opera, full to the brim of most delightful genu; and Marie Stone, as "Suzatte." gave her delighted audi-ence, beyond comparison, the best bit of character acting that has been seen in Salt Lake of late. This lady's voice is a revelation in itself. Without being grand, it is sweet; and she sings so wonderous easily that what to others would require and betray an effort cornea from her as though she were born to it Marie Stone is an artiste without a rival in comic opera. ... ' Jessie Bartlett Davis ia one of the most perfect actresses on the lyric stage. Her voice ia a pure and powerful con-tralto, without a flaw in its tone; and within the memory of the writer she has never been surpassed save by Madame Strakoscn, and she was, as all kmow, Amelia PattL Jessie Davis, as the "Mar-chioness," was all that conld be wished, and she constantly charmed her audience by the magic of her truly delightful singing. . - Mr. Fred Dixon, is a g.Tod actor with a very sweet and technically correct tenor voice. He does not soar to any very great height in his vocalization, but what he does is done well and gives satisfac-tion. The other male voices have but little opportunity for display in "Su-zette- ," and to the casual listener this may be confounded with weakness. The chorus was all that it should be, the singing being far the best Uhat has been given ua in this line for a long time. "Suzette" is very taking in all respects, and the large audience last evening showed its appreciation by its entire good humor, loud applause, and frequent 'calls for repetition, which Latter were as freely complied with by the good natured ladies and gent'emen of the company. Tonight, "Fra Diavolo." Those congressmen who lost inoney through the embezzlement of Clerk Sil-co-are happy once more. It Las been decided by the court of claims that the losera must be reimbursed by the gov-ernment. Silcotl, therefore, slolo from the government and not from the con-gressmen. ' 'J'fi people of Salt Lake areenjoying a irare treat this week in the operatic per-to- r mances of the Bostonians. The com-pany is composed of artists who are gentlemen and ladies'. The liberal patronage they are receiving is a de-served tribute to their musical talent. Such an organization as the Bostonians is a great credit to the American operatic atase. TUOMAS A. LINK. For a quarter of a century tho stately stops and dignified bearing of that for-mer actor and gentleman of the old school, Thomas A. Lyne, Esq., has been a familiar sight to tho old time residents of this city. But a few weeks ago and after he had passed his eighty third birthday the writer met him on Main street. It was always a treat to meet and greet him, for he retained his facul-ties of body and mind (barring a deaf-ness which grew upon him for a year or two paBt) until his recent illness. Hin courtly manners and his reminiscences of distinguished men of the past generation made him a welcome companion. This simple way of living and his freedom from all vicious habits, in such marked contrast with the fash-ions of these times, gave him the appear-ance of a stalwart man of seventy yeais. At last, in his eighty-fourt- h year, the silver cord was loosed, he was no more seen on the streets, and on yesterday morning he died at his residence in this city, and this afternoon the funeral ser-vices were held at the Twelfth ward school-hous- Farewell old friend " To know, to esteem, to love and then to part, Mukoe up Ufe'l fate to many a feeling heart." The Times publishes today an inter-esting interview with a Colorado mining expert, Mr. D. D. Fowler, who has just purchased for an English syndicate the Stewart group of mines from the Bing ham raining company. Mr. Fowler says the development of the mining resources of Utah are twenty-fiv- e years behind the times. He is very enthusiastic re-garding the mining prospects of this ter-ritory, and regards Halt Lake as the future great city of the west Mr. Fowler throws out some practical hints regarding the proper advertising of this city and territory. His interview is well worth reading. THE SEW TARIFF BILL. The new tariff bill favorably reported to the house, alTects Utah products in the articles of lead, hides and wool, and increases the tax more or less on them. Sulphur or brimBtone is put on. the free list, but retined in rolls is taxed $8 per ton. Mica is changed from the free lint on to the dutiable, at 35 per C3nt ad valorem, eggs 5 cents a dozen, glycerine crude 1 cent a pound, retined cents; soda 1 cent a pound; effer-vescing mineral waters, natural and imi-tation, 25 cents a dozen bottles. Tho tax on sugar, molasses and tobacco is greatly reduced. Fish, caught by Amer-ican vessels and in our own waters, come in free. On the whole, so far as Utah is concerned, her producers and people generally have no cause to complain of the bill as it stands. Before it passes the ordeal of congress, many modifica-tions and alterations will be made. See-tion- al and conflicting interests will tiercely clash; dividing parties and com-promise will be the order of the day. As the house bill now reads, it is calcu-lated that the national revenue will be reduced some sixty million dollars per annum, more or lossi It is to be hoped that a good silver bill will be enacted into law before the in-terminable debate on tariff matters com-mences. Let us have money to pay taxes before they are added or dimin-ished. THE MKN WHO DO NOT LIFT."

MORNING AND EVENING l'APKRS. The New York Mail and Express, the only evening journal that ia a member of the associated press in that city, of-fered a prize of 8100 for the best articles on advertising in it, in preference to the morning papers. The sum named was to be divided among the best four ar-ticles submitted for examination. The prize articles are to be submitted to the readers of the paper, who by their votes are to determino the order in which the prize money shall be awarded, viz: $50 to the best, $25 toJJ the second best, $15 to the third, and $10 to the fourth. In its issue of the 2Gth ult. the Mail publishes in full the four selec-ted articles. Some of the salient points we note, as follows: The evening paper brings to the only leisure hours of the business and labor-ing man, and to the firesides of their families, the fresh news of the day. Its local,telegruph and editorial columnBare tirst buunnnd, and then leisure is had for a review of ita want columns, and for its general and standing advertisements. Business cares that infest the day are dismissed, and in the quiet of the home-ward ride, or amid the welcome domestic circle at home, the news, the editorial matter and even the advertising columns ure reaa ana commented upon. oo me advertising patrons of the evening paper reach a larger number of paying readers of the right sort, in proportion to the circulation of the paper, than do tiie ad-vertisers in the morning papers. A clean, newey, ' intelligent evening paper that on9 cn conscientiously take and read in the bosom of his family is read by a larger number of persons with wants to be satisfied by the dealers who wisely cater to them aud judiciously their wares, and is therefore the best medium through which to reach the public. FACTS AND FICTION. "Over traokless plains and through uncounted perils the Mormons of a past generation made their way tn the territory-no- known aa Utah, and pitched their fonts in a barren lund by the shores of the great Bult. Lake. Their environ, ment was as sinsuinr as their belief, llefore them lay a hody of water cloar and green, in whom depths life becamedeath.and whose shores glittered not with the varied hues of vegetation, hut. with (lie white brillinnce of Innumerable crystals. Within the limit of the lake a influence boiled and bubbled uncounted pools; here one scalding hot, itnd there one icy cold, and again anothor seething with onrhouio acid gus. Mtrange streams run into the saline reservoir, whose wat-ers were clear and tasteless, but which stained with brown everything they touched." The above quotation is cut from tin ex-change, and as some of the readers of Thb Times are readers of Haggard's novels, possibly this scrap of pure fiction may interest them. The Mormon pioneers followed the well defined wagon trail of the Oregon and California emigrants across the plains. Instead of a "barren lund" surrounding Great Suit Lake, they found one of the most fertile valleys in the world. The lake itself is full of life, of a low order and evidently of polygamic habits; the "strange streamn" running into it are beautiful .mountain streams, tilled with trout until they reach the lake and decline ' to be-come salt fish. On the eastern borders of the lake, hot and cold medicinal springs lire found it is true, but in con-nection with a luxurious bath in the lake, invalids find them healing and often palatable. So much for Salt Lake and its beautiful surroundings. Possibly (he writer of the nrticle quoted from, may have drawn upon his imagination in describing "Pitch Lake" in Trinidad one of the West India is-lands. It is from this hike, or rather deposit, that the asphaltuiu which lig-ur-in the Denver fight with sandstone for paving, is extracted: This famous cesspool, for it esn Imrdly deserve a belter name, covers a apace of 1W acres, and contains millions of tons of bitumen, which pre. vaiien tho air with ita smell. On approaching tha spot the evil odors arovv oppressive end It is a vevitabitf Styiitim pool, and present a most singular appearance as it glares aud glit- ters in tho sun. Narrow channels of wntpr divide the black mass into hiindrnlsnf isolated patchee. Small islands si ruckle along t he center, coveml with thick low scrub. Hearobonts the pitch is yellow ami white with sulphur foimi, and loath-some bubbles of gas ante lo taiut still further the already heavily burdened air. UNDERTAKERS' SHOP FUNEJRAUS." - e . Many of Them Now and They Are Ex-pected to Become- Yet More Common. Successful undertakers in New York nowadays have to be prepared to flimish a clrarqh and clergyman along wfltli the other requirements for a funeral. Not very long ago it was an exceptional thing foe funeral services to be held in (B un-dertaker's shop. Only the bodies at the friendless or of those whose friends were too poor to afford any better accommo-dations were then taken from the t Older-taker- 's direct to the grave. Of late, how-ever, the phrase: "The funeral wdl be held at the parlors of under-takers," is frequently seen attach id to death notices, and oven more often the place where the funeral is to be helil la designated by Its street number cwly. Nine times out of ten the place so desig-nated is an undertaker's shop. ' ', The way this has come about has been chiefly through the increasing rellno-tanc-e of hotel and boarding house kiiep- - ers to have a funeral in their house. Friends of those dying tn such places are generally given to understand tltat an immediate removal of the body would be highly appreciated, or, if tha friends appear within a few hours, tho proprie-tor summons an undertaker and has the body removed. Unless the deceased Ban has near relatives in the city it is gen-erally a matter of difficulty- for tha friends to find a place in which to hold the funeral, unless', they wish to. go. to the expeneo of a church funeral, and have a claim upon some church of which they can make use. In this way it has naturally come about that bodies have been left to lie in the undertaker's rooms, and at the time set for tho funeral the friends have gathered there and listened ' to a brief service pronounced by some clergyman, supplied by the undertaker, too, perhaps, and thence have borne the body directly to the grave. With the increase of this custom the undertakers have beau compelled to in-crease the size of their rooms and to' fit them up better and differently from or-dinary shops of the sort One city un-dertaker has gone so far as to clear out tha whole front of his store and leave a large room nearly seventy-fiv- e feet deep, with paneled, church like ceiling and walls, which cau be filled with chairs if necessary, where tho services are held. It is not unusual for as many as two or three hundred persons to gather at fu-neral services held in this shop. Some quite well known persons have been bur-ied from there. One, a woman, who had been in life a well known advocate of cremation, went from there to the) crematory only a few days ago. Gome undertakers think that this cus-tom will continually increase ia a city like New York, and that in time every undertaker wilt have to keep a sort of small chapel in connection with his shop for the use of his customers. At present those who have the facilities for allow-in- s services to be held in their shops make an extra charge for the use of the room for that purpose, but competition is already doing away with that. New Vork Sinn. !J ... Ih" the people of Ogden cun find any 6oluce in the special dispatches that they are sending to tho Rooky Mountain News of Denver, convey-ing the announcement that there is a fierce struggle between Suit Lake and Ogden to gain the commercial and man-ufacturing supremacy of the territory of Utah, they are welcomo to il, Tiik Times does not wish to place uny obsta-cle in the way of their enjoyment, which, it hopes, will continue uninterruptedly. Bait Lake, however, needs no champion to proclaim her commercial and manu-facturing sttitus, nor does she require a certilicate to vouch for the stability of her growth and unprecedented progress. A visit to the two cities and a careful comparieon will bijou convince any fair minded person as to their relative and otherwise. There is no rivalry between Salt Lake and Ogden eave that which the people of the latter city choose to make, in their vivid imag-ination. The citizens of Salt Luke are altogether too magnanimous to with imything but success for'Ogden's future, Rnd they have nothing to fear in the ' way of rivalry either in that direction or anywhere else in the territory of Utah.
