THE SALT LAKE TIMES, FRIDAY, JUJSE 13, Patronize a Home declares that private properly shall not bo takeu for public use without just compensation. Wo Ho not. mean to say that the transfer of the property of this dissolved corporation to the public schools of Utah would be in violation of this provision of I lie constitution. Hut we do say it would be in uolaliou of its spirit. Why should not congress be just, even to the Mormons? Thousands of members of the Mormon church have never lived in polygamy. Ought they to be made to sutler because of the crimes of other-!- , or because their church teaches the doctrine of polyg-amy? Tho proposed conliscation is it u necessary. It would bo unjust and unfair. Mormon Church Property. Denver Itvpubllcan. Is the liandful of Mormons in Utah and other parts of the country such a menace to our institutions that it is ne-cessary for tho government of the United Slates to resort to conliscation in order to hold the, Mormon church in check?. There to mush a thing as honesty in dealing with one's enemies. There is such a thing as justice to criminals. There is such a thing as doing right for right's sake, and in the face of popular prejudice. But the bill which Senator Edmunds introduced, to turn the pro-perty of the Mormon church over to tho public schools of Utah, fails to recognize any of these geueral propositions Tho supreme court has held that con-gress had the power to declare, the Mormon church corporation dissolved. Under the old rule of tho common law Which was far from the perfection of either human wisdom or human justice the property of u dissolved corpora-tion escheated to tho crown. Neither the creditors nor the stockholders could claim anything as against the crown. But the harshness of this rule was re-moved by the courts of equity when they iuterfcrred and decreed that the assets of such corporations should be distributed among those equitably en-titled to them. The corporation of the Mormon church being dissolved, the property is, according to the old common law rule, subject to the disposition of the government. But tho supreme court hesitated to euforce so harsh and un-just a rule. It sought some equitable way for the distribution of the prop, erty. Whilo the court was deliberating Senator Edmunds stepped for-ward . and, by the introduc-tion of tho bill referred to, proposed to relieve the court of its embarrass-ment and cause congress to confiscate the Mormon church properly. But whether congress or the supreme court be immediately responsible, the people will be ultimately so. if (he property of the Mormon church shall be turuod over to the public schools of Utah, The fact that some of the Mormons aro polyganiisis and that tho church teaches the doctrine of polygamy will not justify tho supposed confiscation.

Mr. Holeomb, tho while in Denver tlie other day, was asked what was the cause of so many decapi-tations of officials. In reply he said that it was to the interest of the com-pany to make these changes. The management, said be, is acting on the same principle that an employer does in regard to his employees. When a large wholesale house, for instance, be-comes dissatisfied with tho services of n clerk, the manager lets him go uml se-cures some other man. Mr. llolcoinb emphatically denied that there bad been any conspiracy among tho men who had been let out. Their services had not been satisfactory aud hence their dismissal. It is quite likely, judg-ing from the various intimations made by Mr. llolcoinb, that lightning will continue to ' strike for some time to come. In other words there is to be a general "shaking up" all along the line. - THE UNION FACIFIC "SHAKE VP." The frequent changes among the officials of ,thc Union Pacific make he tenure of office under that corpora-- . lion very uncertain. Never in tho his-tory of the road have there been so many changes as during the past two years. Such uncertainty, it would seem, is very demoralizing io the em-ployees, who are in constant fear of re-moval. How good discipline can be maintained under such a policy is something Unit cannot Naturally there has been n gruat deal of criticism passed upon the management of the road on account of tli frequency with w hich official heads have been dropped into l lie basket.

Science gives us interesting details about what the human eye has been and what it may become. The Vendas of India, which are the most ancient writ-ten documents, attest that at times most remote, but still recorded in history, only two colors were known black and red. A. very long time elapsed before tho eye could perceive the color yellow, and a still longer time before green could bo distinguished; and it is remarkable that in the most ancient language the term which designated yellow insensibly passed to the signification of green. The Greeks had, according to the generally received opinion, the perception of colors very highly developed, and yet authors of a more recent date assure us that in the time of Alexander tho the Greek painters knew but four colors, viz.: white, black, red and yellow. The words to designate blue and violet were wanting to the Greeks in tho most ancient times of their history, they call-ing theso colors gray and black. It is thus the colors in tho rainbow were only distinguished gradually, and the great Aristotle only knew four of them. It is a well known f,act that when the colors of the prism are photographed there re-mains outside the limit of tho bine and violet in tho spectrum a distinct imprci)-6io- n which our eyes do not recognize as a color. Physiologists tell us that it is reasonable to suppose that as the color organ becomes more highly developed, anil even before tho human eye becomes perfect, this outside band will evolve into acolor perfectly discernible.

In England and America wrongs real or fan-cied are remedied by suits at Inw. When Irlnce Bismarck was displeased with tho Borliu representative of a lmdou daily he secured his temporary Incarceration in a debtor's prison, and when the man wrote and asked for news 1 hereafter the chancel-lor made answer that it could on no ac-count be furnished to one so unworthy. And now the Italians, finding that they had cherished in their bosom vipers who, in their capacity of special correspondents, made light, of the place of Italy among the nations, have caused those special corre-spondents to be escorted to the frontier by the police. It is in Russia, however, that the journalist has the hardest time of it. Every line put in type at a newspaper office has to be submitted to an official censor, who erases, corrects and interdicts. Says Mr. Kennnn in a recent arfvele: "When the revised proofs have been Again examined, and the censor has gone home, the work of the editors and reporters is ended for t he day. Moscow may be burned to the ground , or the czar may be assassinated, but after the censor has retired to his couch not a line of new matter can be put into the col-umns of the paper." , ItAlI.KOAD DISCRIMINATION. Salt Lake needs more jobbing houses. It is admirably located for doing n big jobbing trade, as it commands a large and rich field, embracing Utah, Idaho and Montana. The trouble is, however, that jobbers Sn Salt Sake do business under very discouraging circumstances owing to railroad discriminations. If this city were treated fairly by tho railroads its wholesale trade would be immediately increased. The trade of the old houses would he more than doubled, and new firms would locate here, What Salt Lake needs in her wholesale trade is a greater variety in her mer-cantile houses. All the staple lines of trado should each be represented by two or threo houses, thus afford-ing competition to buyers. Owing to this lack of variety Salt Lake loses a vast volume of trade. All this would bo remedied,; however, if fair treatment could bo obtained from tho railroads. This is a matter that pro-perly comes within the jurisdiction of tho chamber of commerce. That body should at least make some effort to secure for Salt Lake such railroad rates as will euable her merchants to at least compete with those of Chicago, Kansas City, Omaha and St. Paul. These four cities are uow able through the favorable rates grauted thcra to capture , an enormous trade throughout tho territory natur-ally tributary to Salt Lake. There is a goneral complaint concerning this dis-crimination,' and it strikes us that if the complaint is well founded a vigor-ous appeal to the inter-stat- e commerce commission might bring about a more favorable condition of affairs. DOIMU OV KOYAUTV. The Queen of England now copyrights all official government publications, and gives notice she will maintain her rights therein. King Charles of Rouinania has a sal-ary of $300,000 a year. He is 51 years of age, and military affairs absorb his attention most of the time. King Humbert of Italy receives at least forty prescriptions a week for dys-pepsia. Some of them come from the most remote quarters of the earth. Queen Emma, the royal consort of the king of Holland, transacts all state busi-ness, for the king is really an imbecile, and his death may occur at any moment. Dom Pedro, the "of Brazil, is writing a paper on the language of the Tupi race, the principal Indian tribe of Brazil, for a German scientific journal. "I own 20,000 hectares of forest," said Prince Bismarck to Jules Simon, "and I plant more trees than I cut down." Bismarck is never so happy as when he is tree planting. Emperor William is reported to have purchased the private diaries of the late Emperor Frederick from Frau Krus, widow of the former major domo of that sovereign, paying her a large annuity for life. A servant of the queen of the Relgians was lately stricken with apoplexy. The first aid that some queens would have thought of would have been an aid-deca-to fetch a doctor, but she turned in and doctored the servant herself. Moon Myths. In southern seas sailors warn intrepid "laud lubbers," who persist in sleeping in open air, to always woo the dreamy god under an awning; otherwise what might have been a refreshing sleep may terminate in temporary loss of sight. I say "temporary" for the reason that it has never turned out to be a permanent calamity, although it frequently causes much trouble, and gives the victim a scks he remembers tho remainder of his life. In regard to the way the moon affects tho weather many curious facts are recorded. It is an old saying that "one Saturday moon change is enough for seven years." The nearer tlie time of the moon's change to midnight, says an old saw, the fairer will the weather be the seven days following. The nearer to midday the phases of the moon happen the more foul the weather may be expected. The space for these calculations, according to the "weather wise," is two hours before and two hours after midnight and noon. If the new moon stands on its point, "so that the strap of a powder horn would not catch on its 'horn,' " there will be much wet weather. If the new moon lies flat on "its back" it will hold all dampness and a dry spell may be expected. Farmers who plant and reap "in the moon" always plant those vegetables whose roots are used as food in the decline or last quarter. John W. Wright in St. Louis Eepublic. A Qneeu of Heart and Bong. Elizabeth, queen of Houmania, is known to the reading public of America and Eu-rope under her nom de plume of Carmen Sylva as a graceful versifier and a charm-ing story writer. Although of German birt h, she has secured a strong hold on the hearts of her husband's subjects. Bofore the Roumanian academy at Bucharest the other day she made a short and womanly speech. An extract from it may convey some idea of the reason for her popularity: The honorable members of this academy some days ago requested me to speak a fenr words amid this assembly of learned men. 1 answered in tue text of Holy Scripture: "Women ought to keep dlenne in the church." I have not changed my opinion today. I shall always maintain that the active life of woman ought not to go beyond the sacneil interior of her home. The voice of woman sounds nowhere so sweetly musical as on her own hearthstone, in the bosum of her family. But God has enlarged and extended the limits of my domestic hearth. My dear country, with its proud hosts of Uouruauian people is not that for me a hearth, largo and precious? If 1 have consented to speak among you today, I do so because I am really at home in the very midst of my children. THE SATURDAY TIMES.

Some very interesting and important rumors concerning the future plans of the Union Pacific are now in circulation. One is to the effect that tho compauy is negotiating for a long lease of the Cen-tral Pacilic, and anotherois that the Union Pacilie-Northwester- n combina-tion is to be made more solid by the election of Marvin Hughilt to the presidency of the en-tire combination. 'This is a very plausi-ble story. It is a well-know- n fact that Vnndcrbilt is largely interested in the Union Pacific and Northwestern, aud that it is his ambit-ion to have a Vauderbilt system from New York to San Francisco. Tho leas-ing of the Central Pacilic will complete the link. The Union Pacific, on the other hand, needs tho Central Pacific. If it secures that road it will be on a more independent basis in its attitude to the other roads which now or will form a junction with the Central Pa-cific at Ogden.' The other roads, how-ever, will naturally endeavor to prevent this plan being carried out, as its ac-complishment would place them at the mercy of tho combination. Meantime, so it is reported, theMilford extension of the Union Pacilic will bo stopped until something definite is learned as to tho probable result of tho negotiations now said to bo in progress. It is also rumored that an order has been issued for the temporary suspension of work on tho Los Angeles extension. If all these reports arc true, they show that there Is to be a lively railroad fight of considerable magnitude with tho Uniou Pacific and Northwestern combinatiou on one sldo, ami on tho other the roads that are interested in keeping the Ccu-tra- l from going Into auy alliance that would naturally prevent fair treatment at the junction poiut.

Double Wedding at a Death Bed. At Rockford, Ills., recently a double wedding was solemnized under peculiarly painful circumstances. Mary L. and AUie D.
