"Yes, sir; tho Rocky Mountain Boll Tolephono company covers territory in two states and two territories." "Then the dividends you speak of ure tho result of tho whole system?" "Yes, sir." "Is the public to undorBtand, then, that you propose to make Salt Lako City pay for your losses up north?" "No, sir; wo keep an accurato account of tho income and expenses of each lino, and Salt Lako City, by itsolf, is a sourco of loss to the company at tho present rates. We have nearly 500 sub-scribers in this city, to be sure; but our experience is that every subscriber above 100 adds to tho cost of the servico to overy individual subBcribor.

If there ore any young men m this comunity that have a leaning toward or a remote yearning for Mormonism thoy should read a recent article on "Family Life among the Mormons," by a daughter of Brighatn Young; and if the perusal of that article does not cure tho leaning and quench the yearning thoy should take the next train for Salt Lake City. At any rate there are some ideas in the article, and a few of thorn stand out so prominently that the reader cannot avoid stubbing the toe of his attention on them, la one respect the Mormon family may be likened unto a beehive, the h unburn! playing the part of the queen bee. Ho sits at his meals with the village that calls him father, ond breaks their monotony by telephoning to wife No.13 at the other end of the table for another cup of coffee. Of course each child Is connectod by a diroct wire with an automatic indicator, so that when the young hopeful in lec-tion F, seat 35, playfully inserts a spoon into its windpipe or a bean into its nose prompt assistance may begiven. In that Utopia of the philopaidiBt a young man can accumulate a family as easily as he can debts in other places. All he has to do is to wait until a vacancy occurs and marry a whole public school and a few kindergartens, with an assortment of teachers. He gets wholesale rates on everything bustles, babies and bliss. When the mild spring days come he char-ters an excursion train and takes his Sunday-schoo- l out on a picnic. He does not have to go outside his family for amusement unless he prefers the pleas-ure of solitude. When cucumbers nnd green apples are in season and the house becomes a little unquiet he can take a cot in a boiler factory, the Bilence of which will be a poultice to the blows of domes-tic sound. Some, though not all, can im-agine the feelings of a man with a fever blister on his lip having to kiss his tribe good-nigh- t. Family life among the Mor-mons must be a picnic for the family. SEEKING PKECIOUS STONES. Ceylon's Treasures in (icnis anil Jewels How the Natives Work tlio tioui Pits. Ratnapura,lho city of gems, Bays tho Coylon Observer, is the center of a dis-trict twenty or thirty miles square, in al-most all of which a stratum of gravel six to twenty feet under the surface ex-ists. Throughout this area gom pits ore to be seen near the villages, some being worked now, othora being abandonod. The natives work hero in companies of six or eight, nnd pay a rupoo per man a month for tho privilege of working a certain allotment, whero they begin by marking off a square of about ten feet. After removing about three feet of soil tho sounding-rod- , a pioco of iron about half an inch in diameter and six feet long, is used to sound for the gravel. If successful, tho digging is begun in car-ne-till about four feet doop. On tho second day gravel is tnkon out by bas-kets and handed from one man to an-other till all within the square is excavated. Should tho minors rind the soil fairly firm nt the bottom of the pit they tunnel all around for about two feet, drawing out the gravel and sending it up also to bo heaped with tho rest, which usually complotos the work of the second day, a watchman remaining near it all night. On the third day it is all washod in wicker baskets by a circular jerking motion, which throws out all the surplus light stone and rubbish, till a good quantity of heavy gravel is loft in the bottom, which is carefully examined. There is hardly a basketful which does not contain some gems of inferior value, which aro usually sold by the pound for about 9 rupoes. Should no valuable stones bo found, another pit is sunk, and so on till one or two, or perhaps throe, really valuable gems are unearthed.when the work is stopped and the whole party goes off to Ratnapura with the prizes. If these are worth, say, a few thousand rupees, they are kept secret and only shown to one or two men of money, who make the owners an ad-vance and look after tho safe custody of the precious stones. Then thev gamble and drink for some time til another advance becomes necessary, and so on till half the value is obtained. Then the party, with the mortgago, pro-ceeds to Colombo or Italutara, whero rich Moorish traders are summoned to purchase, and the goms soon find their way to London. The general public knows nothing about these transactions, and valuable gems are never heard of in Ceylon, and scarcely see the light of clay till they reach Bond street. The na-tives have a great fear of exposing their finds till they are sold, and they have most extraordinary supersti-tious ideas about showing them. Ibis system has been in vogue for centuries past It is only occasionally that ono hears of any native having enterprise enough to dig a few feet below the hrst gravel to see if, by sounding a second be J of gravel is within reach, for they fear the expense of bailing out water, which increafes as the greater depth is attained, although the second gravel is well known to bo much richer than tne first. !

In a special telegram from Salt Lake City it was stated yesterday that William II. Folsom, a brother of one tho lato Urigham Young's wives, had been arres-ted for violating the Edmund's-Tucko- r law. It was stated in conclusion that Folsom wai a cousin of Mrs. Grovor Cleveland. Mr. Bvron Ileed was Baked by a repor-ter yesterday if it waa true that the Fol-som referred to in the dispatch was any relation to Mrs. Cleveland. Mr. Reed stated most emphatically that there was no William H. Folsom in the family. "The wife of Brighatn Voung referred to in the dispatch," said Mr. Reed, "was a girl named Maria Fol-som, who was raised in Council Bluffs. She went out to Salt Lake and was after-wards married to Brigham Young. She washisfist wife, and was the favorite. I don't remember whether she had abrot?-e- r named William or not, but at any rato they are not related to Mrs. Cleveland." A Nliot at California. From the Kansas City Star. Why shouldn't California become tl home of "the Louisiana lottery company." A state that tolerates, or rather permits, tho encouragement of prize lighting is none too good to become the gambling center of the United States. IRRIGATION. A Question of Vital Importance to tlie Western Country. From the Denver News. The question of irrigation is one which is not only of vital interest to the west-ern country, but i9 engaging the serious attention of congress. Whether a broad, comprehensive system of the national government shall be inaugurated, or the power to regulate the matter be left to state control, is a question which is perplexing the mind of national legislators. It would seem that a decision adverse to the latter plan had been reached by the United States sen ate, the committee having control of the fubject deciding against the bill provid-ing for the ceding of the public lands in California, Navada and other states for the purpose of aiding irrigation, which was indefinitely post-poned, and announcing that some other satisfactory plan would be proposed. This action would be hearti-ly acquiesced in if the latter proposition is carried out A comprehensive sys-tem, by which all the right of the people of the different states and territories are secured, inaugurated and carried "n under federal supervision, will do away with conflicts between states and individual claimant of wuter rights which would necessarily en-sue were each to carry out a system of its own, looking to their own immediate relief and improvement, without regard to the rights of others. But this great work should not be delayed. The quicker water rights are settled and a system inaugurated which will embrace the whole of tho arid or plains country the better.
