Our Telephoiio Number, 481. but tho progressive and enterprising citizens girded up their loins and join-ing Paxton, transformed the struggling frontier town on tho west bank of the Missouri into a city that on the first of July had, according to the official cen-sus report, but a small fraction less than 140,000 people. To-da- y Mr. Tax-to- n is the most popular man in Omaha, and there is no office in the gift of her people that ho cannot have for the ask-ing. Of course, he and the men who joined him reaped tho benefit of their enterprise in cold cash. And what Paxton did for Omaha that Senator Tabor did for Denver and other men for Kansas City, St. Paul, Minneapolis, Tacoma, Seattle, and so on. None of the cities above named com-bine all the advantages of Salt Lake and as we cast our minds eye upon the long list of buildings like the Holmes, Hooper, Walker, Dooley, Lawrence, Auerbach, McKimmins, Dinwoody, Commercial bank, Zions Savings bank, Ontario hotel, Eastside hotel, Chamber of Commerce Kolsey & (lillcspio, Dyer, Thomas, and a number of others that are going up on every hand, we arc filled with greater admiration than ever for tho public spirit and personal sagacity of many of our citizens. With so splendid a beginning who shall doubt our future? The one great coming city between Denver and San Francisco that baa already come is the capital of Utah. Ulll.DI-N- IN SALT I.AKK. One of the most interested spectators at the races last week was a big man, big in every way who at home is popularly kuown as "Bill" Paxton. Mr. Paxton has large interests all through the west, and mainly in Omaha and South Omaha. Ten years ago. when Omaha had just thirty thousand people, he took it into his head, or bettor still, he was foresighted enough, to build, aud build as a man of his sizo naturally would, solid structures five, six and seven stories high. The croak- - era and the niossbacks looked auhast.' A Handsome Group, Ploche Kocord. P011 jade's Pioche mines, which he designates as the Key Group, have just paiif in a bullion tax of $1500 net pro-duct for tho last quarter. During the past five years Mr. Poujade's mines have reported a greater net product than all other mines in this district combined. YRSTERDAY IV UHTOIIY-SE- P'T 7. 1700 Dr. Samuel Johnson, lexicographer, born. 1741 Birth of Arthur Youn?, English agricultural writer. To this mvit prolific writer and ari- - tator England owes more than to any omer one man lt present heauty.

He died in 1820. 1767 Birth of Lafayette; died 18M. 1780-D- eath of Sir John Fielding, author. 1813 Battle of Borodino; Napoleon then march-ing upon the Russian capital. 1816 Birth of Howe Cobb In Cherry Hill, Ga. ; died In New York Oct. 9, 180S. 1881 Birth of Victorien Sardou, French drama-tist.

In 1807 it was made capital of the grand duchy of Warsaw. The Russians were driven from it by the Poles In 1830, only to return to stay In 1831. 1869 --Capture of Bchamyl, great Circassian leader, by the Russians; he was treated with much respect by them. 1860 Garibaldi entered Naples; King Francis re-tiree. Insurrection followed in the Papal states and Sardinians defeated the Papal troops. 1803 Battery Wagner, one of the defenses of Fort Sumter, captured by the Union troops. IBM Snermau ordered the depopulation of At-lanta. 1877 Battle at Plevna; Turks commanded by n Poshs- - Irrigation In Nevada. Virginia Chronicle. Rowlands and the board of trade are not in the city, but the irrigation prob-lem seems to be discussed freely and often. The old- bums and rounders eagerly follow the squads of politicians in their frequent raids into the Irriga-tion saloons, and the inspiring smell of whisky floats thick on the balmy air. Kew Discoveries. Silver State. New mines have been discovered about 25 miles from Wadsworth, near Winnemiicca lake, which is on the line between this country and Washoe. One of the ledges is said to be eight feet wide, and some specimens of the ore assay $180 to the ton in silver! Engi-neer Hampton llought some samples of tho ore here, which old miners say are rich.

Advice to Utah, Cheyenne Live Stock Journal. The Journal desires to impress upon its Utah readers tho fact that beef cat-tle next spring will bo worth about double tin present market prices. Wo mention Utah for the reason that if the alfalfa crop of this year is properly saved it will fatten a majority of the matured steers in the territory. Hence they should all be held over and hay-fe- d for the spring market-- . Every farmer of Utali who has sufficient feed should buy steers and ripen thera for the April market. There Is money in it. THE fOI.'l MIUA FAIR. Were tho Columbia fair of 1803 a local affair with Chicago we could afford to laugh at the ludicrous exhibi-tion her committee and citizens are making of themselves; but as it affects the credit and honor of the whole coun-try we are pained at the display of cupidity, meauuess and jealously in connection with it. This feeling is vastly aggravated by thu sense of dis-appointment in our judgment of Chi-cago's patriotism, for it is tha't which is Involved. When the location of the World's fair was discussed in congress and tho west arrayed itself against the cast, this section at ouce enlisted in favor of Chicago and espoused her claims with characteristic vigor and enthusiasm, for we could seo nothing in tho city by the lake except the embodi-ment of western push, pluck arid loyalty.. Afler watching for many months the bickering, trading and mor-tifying delay in the selection of tho site for tho fair, the conclusion bccjines that Chicago with her rapid growth is also rapidly acquiring a spirit of sellishness that seems inherent to great wealth and position. We will soon ha"3 to look elsewhere for tho typical western city with her broad views and generous impulses, Just now we fear the Columbia fair, if held at all, will be a more parody of our ability to provide an international ex-hibition. r Trustee Nelson is inclined to be parsimonious where parsimony is not tho best policy. , Staid Boston is complaining of the noise tho electric cars are making. Pushing Salt Lake wants the noise ex-tended a great many miles. Raiuioad accidents throughout the country are becoming too numerous for comfort, although the season of the deadly car stove has not yet arrived. The mayor of Long Island, N. Y., knocked down a newspaper man and kicked him. The iirst inning was his, .but we venture to say it will be his last. A Costly Mistake. Park City Record. Already it has been demonstrated that a mistake was made in not having tho county seat moved to 1'ark City when tho proposition was voted on. It has cost a great deal within the last year to repair tho court house at Coal-v'll-but tho worst of It is that hun-dreds of dollars will be required an-nually to make the old barn safe or habitable. Indeed a great part of the surplus in the county treusury has been used for repairs and improvements which are in realty not worth half what they cost. A vault for the recorder was built that was utterly worthless and of no service whatever. Had the county seat been moved to Park City no such expenses would have been' in-curred and tho surplus absorbed. The county treasury will be practically empty uutil the tax money comes in. The New York World cails it tho hoiiso of In view of the pugilistic! tendency of the mem-bers would bo more appropriate. Kaiser William is the Hying Dutch-man of European politics. A good many conservative Germans, amoug them Prince Bismarck, think ho is fly-ing too high. Minister Mizneu is going to have peace' if he has to get the whole Uur rundia family exiled, and the Guate-mala government is in a fair way to grant his modest request. MAKIUAOK. Count Tolstoi, with pernicious activ-ity, endeavors to impress the world with the wickedness of tho institution of marriage. Although himself mar-ried, aud happily married, it is said, and surrounded by an interesting fam-ily of cliildreu, tho noble author persists in his crusado against a system that tho best men of all ages regard as sacred, anil the wisest men as tho foundation rock of civilization. From a moral and hygionio point of view, too, marriage has proved to bo a marked success, and it is conceded by tho best statisticians that married life enhances the chances for longevity by at least twenty per cent. Wo can readily conceive how a man living in tho gloom of Russian barbarity and affecting a strango religious ten-dency should in theory prefer colibacy to conjugality, and wish by that means to bring the world to an end. Perhaps if we lived in the shadows of tho Siberian exilo wo might be bettor able to svmpa-- thiy.0 with Count Tolstoi in his false philosophy. Hut in this free country wo have something to live for, and while tho path of life is sometimes thorny enough, tho true man and true woman find ample compensation for it all In the bosom of their families. Why should Tolstoi wish to rob the world of tho hollowost of its possessions and the noblest incentive to do good; why, in-deed, should he try to suppress the grandest of all human emotions, Love, and its fullest consummation, Mar-riage? Tolstoi may find a multitudo of curi-ous readers in this country, but as for disciples we believe ho will not lind many. Our Christianity and our civili-zation are based upon a higher piano thau his, and the home, albeit the fam-ily, Is tho corner stone of our highest endeavors. Galveston loads tho procession of clearing hotiso returns this week with an increase of 218.2 per cent. The increase throughout this country and Canada is 3.1 percent. AT PARTING. Anna Sawyer In Good Housekeeping. Dear friends, when one sure day shall come, And time is o'er for me, I pray you speed my Bplrlt home, Upon the chblng sea. Let not thy grief with broken sound And longing echoes nil, The heart which turned to peace profound Submissive should grow still. These close knit strands of throbbing life May hold with wondrous power The soul which far from fear or strike Should wait the coming hour. And deep within that soul enwove An answering chord may be, Struck by the pain of those we love, Through all eternity. For love is deathless which God made. Its promise he will keep, And at this hour let It be laid Upon bis breast to sleep. Beloved ones, your true love may ho My summond spirit fast, I pray then loose Its clinging fold, . Until that soul has passed. VOICES OF THE NIGHT. Heard Throngh the Open Window of Our Boarding House. Open houe windows on still summer nights afford good enterta'nment for those sleepless individuals who spend their time kicking the sheet off and pulling it up. "For heaven's sake, Maria," peuls out a voice as startling as if from a church yard, 'don't snore so loud. I've done nothing but invent ways to wake you up ever since ( came to bed. , The neighbors will certain-ly think I am strangling you. Can't you put on the soft pedal a little? Ease up, any way, till I get a cent's worth of nap." "Me snoring!" Maria replies, in sleepy disregard of grammar. "It's your own echoes you hear. I haven't had a wink of Bleep. I can't sleep, with you coming in at all hours of the night and turning up tho gas full tilt to see if yon had dampened your patent leathers. Me snoring! Never snored in my life, and you know it. You didn't know what you were about, anyway, when you came in. You said you had been down to Taft's, and there isnt any Taft's now. Think I'm a fool? You get into one of your stupid snoozes and hear yourself snore, and then yell 'Muria!' Go to sleep, will you, and remember there's only one person snores in this family, and that's you!" And a deadly silence reigns thj,v3 windows. "Mar-ma- r, is you here?" "Yes, darling." "Is par-pa- r here?" "Yes, darling." "Is we goin' away "Yes, darling." "Is I goin'?" "Yes, darling?" "Is you goin'?" "Yea, darling." "Is par-pa- r goin'?" "Yes, darling." "Is wc goin' in " "Yes, darling." "Is I goin' in choo-choos- "Yes, darling." "Is you goin' in choo-choos- "Yes, darling." "Is par-pu- r goin' iu choo-choos-?" "Yes, darling." "Mar-mar!- " . "Yes, darling." "Is we goin' to granmar's?" "Shut that child up, will you, Helen, ov I'll come in there." And silence frills on another hippy nocturnal talk. "Maud!" "Yes," in eager shrillness. Aro you awake?" "Yes; are you?" "Yes, I can't sleep." "Neither can I." "Wasn't he splendid?" " 'Sh, 'shl Your brother will hear ns " "Don't care if he does; he acted like a perfect brute to drax us home so sari v." "Well, Ruth?" "What?" "Don't you think?" "What?" "Don't you think" (subdued gipgle) v "Do tell me what I don't think." "Don't you think your brother" (snick-r- ) "Don't be an idiot, Mai, what do yon mean?" "I think your brother is" (sound as of pillow rammed into mouth) "Maud Newbury, if you can't stop being a fool at midnight what hope is there for you?" "All right, Ruthio; I'm going away next week, and you can be as wise as yon please only I was going to say something that you might" "Well, what is it?" "Why, I" (ecstacy of snickers "Maud!" "I know it." "What do you know?" "That I am a fool; but there" "But what?"

The assessed roll this year is seventeen million dollars less than it was two years ngo when tho boom , was on. i When a lirm of conservative men like tho Walker Brothers puts its money freely in mortar and brick it means something. It means confidence backed by cash, which is confidence of tho most substantial kind. UTAH NOTES. Lehi has a band of eighteen pieces. Is it any wonder tho boom packed its grip and left? Since potatoes havo risen to be CO cents a bushel in Lehi, they are no longer referred to as "pertaters." There is an editor ut Eureka who is so dry that ho has to soak himself in whisky before he can hold an idea. The Lehi iron foundry was broken into and robbed a few nights ago. A burglar who would rob an iron foundry is a dangerous citizen. Willis G. Emerson of Ogden is nurs-ing a boom at Eagle Rook, Idaho, be-sides atteuding to his business in the Carnival city. As Willis is from the state of lugalls and Plumb and sun-flowers, it is safe to say that what he don't know about booms'would make a very small book. Wb understand that his (Prof. Montgom- - ery's) ileslro Is to make of the museum In tho university the Uncst in the world. Tribune. Wo don't know which to admire more, tho monumental modesty of tho professor or the collosal credulity of tho Tribune. In North Carolina the servant girl is looming up to be a burning question, and societies are forming thoro to solve it. Wo wish them success. In this re-gion it is the servant girl that is form-ing tho socioties and acting generally is if sho was the mistress of tho earth. In a political contest so hot as that In Idaho, a country so closely "allied to Utah, wo are surprised to seo no homo speakers on the stump in that state, though wo havo an abundance of talent. In Wyoming the big guns are all Im-ported from Colorado, both republican and democrat. Hon. J. IIenn'ikkk IIeatox, M. P. of Great Britain, known as tho great Eng-lish postal reformer, is in Washington using his influence and persuasion to secure a reduction of postago between tho two countries. That is all very well, but if the postage is to bo reduced let us begin at home. The republican party is committed to one cent postago. COLORADO NOTES. A biblo class was formed at Aspen last week. It caused a decided sensa-tion. It is said that Tom Patterson has ob-tained a more acute kuowledge of the rapacity of a white elephant within the past four weeks than most individuals would learn in a lifetime. An organized gang of thieves arc operating around the uniou depot iu Pueblo and it is almost unsafe to carry a valiso into the depot. Even Lacy, of the Star, lost his "grip" the other day. During a divorce trial at Aspen last week the spectators and reporters were excluded from the room. Indignation ran quite high for a time, but suhsided when one of the witnesses divulged the racy testimony which had been intro-duced. Those people who do not believe that Tabor will assist iu defeat-ing ono or two of tho candidates for governor are unacquainted with the facility with which tho old gentleman opens up his purse for campaign pur-poses. DO l'OU KNOW WHY? Have you noticed that warfare is more frequent in summer than in winter Look back over ten years and see if you can remember whether it was in the warm weather or in tho cold, in dog-day- s or about Christmas, that most of the hot blood of tho world grow hot enough to boil. It is hardly worth while, though, for it is easy to recollect that the summer time is the season pro-ductive of riot and musketry and can-non. There was Arabi Bey; you remember him. lie waited until perspiration came easy before making a holy show of himself. The Zulu war was iu the summer time of years ago; the Central American wars were likewise products of the warmer season. Brazil revolted when May and Juue were smiling in sunshine; Hawaii now promises to go and do likewise while August is upon tha world. Aud why? Does warm weather make monarchs more petulant or men more patriotic? Is tho thermometer indica-tive of the animal in man, so that when the mercury goes up the desire to fight and to see blood flow goes hand in hand with it? One would think of the summer as a season of rest from a year of toil, as a time for recuperation, as a period only to batho nnd row and fish, and to re-member that life is worth living after all. Why is it not universally so? Can anyone tell? Although tho arrest of tho alleged Bountiful incendiary Holbrock and the silver wedding of Marshal Parsons oc-curred on Friday night onr ancient and decrepit morning cotomporaries never knew anything about either affair until they read it in The Times. Tho daily Scooped are evidently in their decadence.. Chicago's Wealthy Spinster.
