J . IV, E. MeDanlel, representing the Hess Paper company of Salt Lake, called yesterday. There ia a great big black shanghai rooster running around onr back yard flirting with all the female pullets in the neighborhood, and when he espied Mack coming toward the sanctum with a gripsack in one hand and a collar box in the other, he thought his time had come and took refuge under the cylinder 'press and stayed there until the paper fiend had left for Ephraim. It was clearly a case of mistaken identity as the world's fair Utah secretary is a brother of Mack's but they look so nearly alike the error was natn'al. The rooster has gone back to work scratching food out of an old ash heap, at least Induciug his family to believe so, humming "Aud are we yet alive"? This journal is in receipt of a letter from Secretary E. A. McDaniel of the Utah world's fair commission appointed by Governor Thomas. The readers will recollect that his excellency got some of his friends to signify their willingness wil-lingness to spend 100,000 dollars of Utah's money at the world's fair, but the impertinent legislature went crazy and thought the money to be appopri-ated appopri-ated should be squandered by some of TJtah's people for Utah, and in the appropriation bill had the nerve to insert in-sert a clause naming one from each county of Utah's representative men to expend the money. This ruined the governor's pleasure party, and the measure was' promptly vetoeJ. For awhile It seemed as if Utah was not going to the fair. There is now a bill pending in congress appropriating 50,000 dollars for this purpose, notwithstanding notwith-standing Governor Thomas' veto. If the bill passes it will be practically the eame as the vetoed measure, or none at all. The governor's Intened appointees, however are not the gentlemen who are signers to the circular found in another eolnmn. These gentlemen are working without salary or hope of reward for the good of this territory. All parties, a united! people, should! push forward and make the exhibit of our territory a creditable one. This can be done only In onelway for all to unite and ask congress to speedily pass that bill. That appropriation, with the subscriptions sub-scriptions asked for added, will make a splendid showing, one that Utah ought to bare.
