THB DEADLY PARALLEL. The Tribune pointed out to the lead' ere of the church and their followers, many years ago, that plural marriage would have to be yielded as a religious rite of the church. Tribune. The above is from the versatile pen of tbe new editor of the Tribune whose name, for some reason, does not sppear st the head of the editorial column in the space made so laiuent-abl- y vacant by the withdrawal of the name of lion. C. (!. Goodwin. He makes the statement in no hesitating manner, but writes as one who Is conversant with tbe facts and who, moreover, is in accord with the sentiment of the Tribune as expressed ''many years ago." If Editor Frank J. Cannon, now with the Tribune incognito and formerly editor of the Standard flamboyantly and pyrotechnically, will inform us how many yearn ago it was when that statement was made and of the full text of the assertions then made by the organ of which he is now editor, we will also produce the answers made to those statement a of the Tribune by him as the editor of the btandard at that time. We have recently been looking over the flies of the Standard at the time Mr. Cannon was editor and his expression then on the same questions that now form topics for his editorials would foriR to ssy the least, very interesting rending in comparison with his present views. The deadly parallel could never be used to better purpose to show np the inconsistency and insincerity of tbe man, nor could a better explanation be given of what It meant to be all things to all men." What has caused this great change? Formerly it was, "we know It comes from God. But now the English vocabulary can not produce words enough to express bin contempt and ridicule for that which once was pure and holy. TODAY IS CHRISTMAS DAY. the principals in the tragedy possessed the qualifications of true manhood or womanhood, accordiug to the published reports; their attributes were such as are cultivated through a life just on the borderland of the under world. Yet the readers of daily newspaper tie man tied the smallest of the affair. Bowing to this demaud the daily press was obliged to print ihe rase in full, and it is due to the Aseociated Prea to say that it demonstrated iu rapacity to serve the papers with the news by giving exactly what tho popular demand seemed to requite and in a shape that met with popular approval. But we still fail to see that public morals and the standard of mental desire have not deteriorated when such quality of new is sought. It surely does not serve tu point out any mure dearly to the coming generations that the path of sin lead but to death and destruction. It may possibly serve to enliven and revivify in some those baser passions which otherwise might have remained dormant It is nut a new story; it i an old one: a woman faithless to parental affection, disloyal to family ties, making a muck of marital relations, traveling the rapid pace which brings grief rapidly on the heels of false pleasure. There seems to be a tendency on Hie part of a portion of the press to throw a cloak of pathos and romance over the ilefrndaul. They tell of her affectionate caressing of her aged father whose white head her sinful course has bowed in shame and grief, of the lonemothly waiting of her broken-hearte- d er whose existence was forgotten while the daughter trod the primrose path. They speak of the look in tlie depths of her eyes like that of a frightened child tud those eyes are the windows of a soul apparently attainted by tbe violation of every commandment In. the leraluguc. She has seen more of toe sin and more of the questionable pleasures of life than tliouands of those who greedily read the account of her alleged crime and her trial and through false sentiment extend her pity. Whether she is guilty of the crime for which she is tried i not the question, but whether it Is advisable to overlook s the life that culminated in such tragedy. There ie enough sin in this world without arousing any false sentiment of sympathy for one who has, with eyes open, entered iuto a sinful life for the satisfaction of her own selfish instincts and is now suffering the inevitable sil Ogden citizens have exhibited a spirit truly consistent with the season this There will be exhibits from nearly every nation that arises to the dignity of a plaoo oa the map.

The poor were not forgotten and in many of the homes childish hearts were made as happy as though poverty had never crossed the threshold. And because of this fact many of those whose generosity contributed to the pleasures of the less fortunate are better enjoying the happiness that la their own. Of what benefit Is the accumulation of wealth unto it is rightly enjoyed. Selfish indulgence of individual desires can bring no lasting pleasure.

When the officer arrived on tbe scene the two men were on tbe ground and the divorced wife of Walker was on tup living to separate them. According to her story sin and Self were walking home, hen Walker ran up from the rear and attacked them, brandishing a knife and yelling: "Now I've got you both and I am going to kill you. Seif, being a much stronger man, knocked the belligerent down, took the knife away from him and see in the act of giving him a thrashing when the policeman arrived. ac-tlu-ns John Elswood, a delivery boy for the People's Cash Stove, was held up and searched by a masked highwayman at U and Second streets about 6 o'clock Friday evening. It happened that the boy did not have any money on his person at the time. He had been out all the afternoon delivering Christmas orders and was about to return to the store. Just aa he turned his horse down U street a man jumped out from behind the tree, grasped tha horse by the head, and told tho youthful driver to throw up his hands.

WHY WOMEN'S SHOE LACES COME UNTIED. "Why is It that a lady's shoe becomes untied so much more frequenteasier than a ly and apparently man'? related J. V. Ladd, the shoe salesman, after me. "Well, I don't suppose I would be in any better posi tion to answer a question than any one else had It not been for tho fact that a few days ago a couple of ladles, customers of my place, were discussing that very point, and their deductions appear to solve the riddle perfectly. "It is not that a woman's shoe laces will not tie In as firm a knot aa any other's; the reason for the frequent annoyances to which women are subjected ia apart from that. In the case of high shoes tha trouble la altogether- in their height. The shoe laces further up on the leg than a man's, usually fits more snugly, and, there, encounters a greater strain on the knot when a woman la waUlag. The result is that It becomes loosened within a very short time, whereas a man may walk all day without tbe laces of his shoe becoming untied. Where low shoes are worn, the skirts flapping around the ankle do the work of lossenlng the knot." . From tbe Chicago Tribune. THE DUCK QUESTION. Evidently tho big sportsmen of the metropolis are not to be denied. They held a moetinjg In San Francisco the other night and decided not only to bring every possible pressure to bear upon the legislature to pass a bill preventing the sale of ducks in the open market everywhere in tbe state, but also to prevent the sale of sntpe and squirrel. Until these alleged sports actually got together and began plotting to capture enough votes in the legislature to insure the passage of tbe proposed bill, not many people gave them much serious attention.

The House of Representatives has refused to allow the inaugural ball to be held in the capitol. It is proposed to hold it In tbe congressional library, but that building ia even less suitable. The only building in Washington fit to hold such a function is the pension building, and the objection to that Is that it puts back the work of granting pensions by at least a ween.
