BACKED DOWN. The people of Utah have expeii-. expeii-. - encedthe fact that it makes but little difference whether the people here are in favor of v measure or not. If congress iu its all steing 'wisdom thinks something is necessary neces-sary for them to do for the sake of making the members solid with their constituents, it is done forthwith. forth-with. We might approprialo the poets description of woman'h ways and it would be apt, ' If they will they will you may depend on'l, and if they wont they wont and there's the end on'l." Whether the Utah S bill will pass or not is one of the r ' things "no fellow can find ont '' but the chances are that but little will be done. The people he.-e, with but few exceptions, are loosing but little, sleep about the probable action of congress. The Liberals are getting reidy for the fruy, for being tflice holders and office seekers they j realize the fact that the passage of a bill giving the people the right to elect their officers would result in disaster for them. No one exDected . anything else from them, and no one was surprised when Powers called a convention of his party, or the Tribune saw a Mormon plot in : the measure, and recognized the hand of the church manipulating the machinery of governmene for .- their own aerandUemeut. - 1 There were a good manvhpw-ever manvhpw-ever thaLmv1 nfcen T)v surprise .when they read the following. in " the Salt Lake Times: '.-."There never was such a thing a? an honeet attempt at division divi-sion on national party lines in Utah-The Utah-The Times once thought there was, ; but ttys bill proves directly the con trary. It is drawn tip with the same skill and cunning that has so often all but baffled the national government in its dealings with UtahV It "demands statehood while professing to want nothing 0f the kind." After all the talk about the lack ,' of stamina about the Mormons .their insincerity in the movement, etc, etc., it is surprising- that the only "Gentile'-' organ endorsing the new departure, should he the first to crawfish, and return, like the sow to her wallowing in the mire-. t. We do not believe that the Times echoes the sentiments of the majority of the Republicans in this territory. The following from the Standard shows a vast difference of feeling between the true and the -false : - : As was to be expected, the proposed bill for partial home rule for Utah meets with violent-opposition in some quarters and sharp criticism in others. Th? Standard confesses its surprise that among true Republicans it should ' find any opponents. It is true that the patty is not favorable to half- a; measures on any subject, and that imnn o4L,..i. r ... it. & "aucmiiw 01 souna tie publican principles there is scarcely a conceivable case where a commonwealth common-wealth that may be entitled to statehood should be cuddled with only a conditional and unusual form of self-government. But it must be borne in mind that the bill was framed to meet a peculiar condition, con-dition, and it of necessity must be Peculiar. It may Dot pasSi u probably will not; yet a peculiar recognition of the community's right of self-government may turely not be rejected by the community Hself simply because among many conscientious men the time has not come when the full recognitor of the right could be granted." - It does not take oug to find out who are in earnest.
