TflE TELEGRAPH AND MESSENGER. FRIDAY. OCTOBER 31,1384. LABOR NG FOR POLYGAMY AN ATTEMPT TO MAKE ALL MORMONS MARRY MORE THAN ONE WIFE. Cannon Predicting the Overthrow istltutlonal Government—Snr< itm Aimed at New England —a Mormon Girl Elopes. Salt Lake, October 14.—Every movement by the Mormon church indi cates that the old men, the fathers in Israel, who have from three to a dozen wives, are in the ascendancy, and that hereafter the non-polygamists are to take a back seat. The revival of sen timent favorable to plural marriages began several months ago, but it now assumes large proportions. At the recent semi-annual conference in this city the burden of all the speeches was condemnation of East ern and Southern enemies and vehe ment advocacy of polygamy. In spite of conservatism shown by many young men, the old leaders have succeeded in developing a spirit amounting almost ^ fanaticism. Tho recent assassina tions and persecutions in the Southern States arc gloried in. In one of Joseph Smith’s revelations occurs the prom ise: “Whosoever lays down his life in my cause shall have eternal life, for in all things shall the people be proved.” "Blood would flow in streams in all these Ivalieya of Utah if certain men had thoir way 1” yelled Apostle Cannon the other day. “And why?” he con tinued. “Because certain men believe that ours is a false religion. Can we deliver ourselves from this attack? Notour hope and our strength is in God, and He will deliver us. He has never yet failed. I know just ns well as that I stand here that the Latter Day Saints and this church will be de livered, and wilt roll forth in mighty power. The day will come, and Ft is not far distant, when we will have a civil strife in this country, and men will flee to Zion for peace and safety. God predicted this forty-nine years ago, and it will assuredly come to pass. I, and many of you present, have been taught Irom boyhood that the time would come when this constitutional government would be overthrown. It seems that the time is fast approach- tog.” In discussing the necessity of putting polygamists at the front, nnd keeping could conjure up. Old wives have been pleaded with, coaxed and threat ened, and the brethren past middlo life who have been slow to set on the suggestions of the eldersTiavc been spared the trouble of picking out wives. Young and attractive damsel* have been selected for them and appropri ately introduced. The aim of the church authorities is to band the whole community together in a common cause. Some being under the ban of tlie Federal law, the determination is to bring all into that attitude. The de serters have been quiet nbout their movements, except in one or twocases, selling out and leaving the country without a word. One couple who were interviewed here last week had come in f Am the southern part of the Territory. They were country people who had had few advantages, but they were honest, de ceit, and full of affection for each other. As they sat in the depot hand in hand, the wifo’s face aglow with health and happiness, and the husband looking comfortable, they talked freely of their past and future. They had come from Indiana six or seven years ago, and had promised each-other that they would have nothing to do with the polygamous feature of the faith. “ We kept our agreement,” the wo man said, “didn’t we Josh?” “Every time,” observed the man, grimly. “And old Injianny is good enough for ns, ain’t it Josh I” she continued. ■“It is that, ’Mandy, if we kin ever make for to git back thar.” “Oh, we’ll get there, never you fear,” she observed. “It’s us what has bin away. Old Injianny is there just as we left it.” . They were not more than thirty years old, and when they boarded the train they were as happy as two children just delivered from some greatly dread ed punishment. Over in Brigham City a polygamous Mormon named George llarkness lias a daughter by his first wife, who is de scribed ns a young woman of more than average beauty and intelligence. She is now twenty-one years old, and has had ample opportunity to witness all the horrors of plural marriages in her own home. Some months ago she met a handsome young Gentile named Browning, who took a great fancy to her. He found her pure minded and lovable, nnd, seeing that her position was an unenviable one, he pressed liis suit, nnd was accepted. When her parents discovered the situation of af fairs they locked her up and refused Browning permission to enter the house. Through the connivance of an other young woman he got notes to her, and at length she effected her es cape, and the pair were married at the Episcopal Mission. When the girl’s father heard of tho marriage he sum-1 rnoned some of tho saints and’ threat- A POWERFUL ARCUHENT FOR LIFE IN SURANCE OF THE RIGHT OTAMP.

He does not represent the people. I feel it an insultheapedupon Mr. Caine to ask him to go to Washington as our ilelegato, because he will have to tell Congress that he believes in the high est law known to God and man, but lias not had tho courage to live up to it.

Boston is the centre of this debauched popula tion, whoso civilization brings forth more child murderers, adultetcrs,sedu cers, paupers, and idiots than that of any other people on the globe, and it is from these that you may exoect the men and women who are to regenerate and Christianize you.” The ioves ot the saints continue to embroil them in all manner of troubles.

Few men are better known in journ alistic circles in this country than Joe” Howard, at present an editorial writer for tho New York Herald. He is a veteran journalist, having been identified with tlie New York press for many years; he was a writer for it in tlie days of the elder Bennett, Horace Greeley and Henry J. Raymond, and has been intimately acquainted with nil the prominent journalists, as well as with the reportorial corps, for the past thirty years. No one ,s better qualified to write about tho newspaper men of the metropolis than the versatile How ard, who. in addition to his editorial duties, finds time to correspond for sev eral journals in other cities. The following leaf from his experi ences constituted a letter to tlie Boston Herald, and was printed in full in that journal: I have had one or two experiences and social encounters yesterday and to-day, which prompt me to write a letter of advice to young men in gen eral and professional men in particular. I will enumerate the points which,com bined, make my text. First, a sub scription paper was presented to me yesterday, the object being to raise money sufficient to buy a sewing ma chine for a woman, and to provide funds sufficient to insure the support of a family for the ensuing two mouths,dur ing which time the woman, a widow, hones and expects to find employment sufficiently remunerative to enable her to be independent oi tlie world. The woman is the widow, and the family are tho children of a man who worked side by side with me and my generation fifteen years, part of which time ho was ns well known in metropolitan journalism as any hard working regulire could be. The remainder of that time he was in poor health, consequently poor in pocket, and oftentimes in dis tress for the common necessities of life for himself and his little family. That’s point number one. Night before last, I was the guest of the Clover Club in Philadelphia,'an organization of bright, clever, indus trious, successful journalists and their friends, comprising some of the ablest and most accomplished literary men of Philadelphia. Part of the evening I talked with a gentleman who started life in an humble laborer's hut on tbe line of an interior Pennsylvania rail road, his earliest days being spent in carrying water for the workmen on the road. Tlienca he entered the employ of nbnnkinxflrm,where he ran errands, swept the floor, washed the windows and generally made himself useful. To-day he Is senior partner of one of the wealthiest houses in Pennsylvania, a triple millionaire ami but two years older than myself. Part of the same evening I talked with a writer of dis tinction, who has enjoyed for ten year* a more than handsome income, and has for twenty years been regarded as one of the clever men in journalism. Dar ing the conversation, born of a refer ence ot mine to the destitute condition of tlie family of my dead friend in New Tabernacle, married his tilth wife, a girl of 20, last week, and when his first wife, an elderly lady, was introduced to her, she hit the young woman over the head with a wet mop, and then chased her half a mile, screaming like a Comanche. Thomas Parker has three wires, two of them tiring in the aerne bouse. All are women under 36. Both of the wives who lived together had foor children, but tlie tittle ones of one of the mothers sickened and died one after another. ABfirtUa titan was • disagreement between the two, and the silent (offer ing of the childless mother has become tin- talk of the neighborhood. Several desertions from the faith occurred during tlie last two months, d» to the pnnan that baa I brought to bear upon the selata with one wife to induce them to take ot! -: wives. So ootaider can easily understand thefory with which these mslanglits bare been made. They have been fortified by all the terrors which the church and its masters I sent for some leaves and had them wet and wrapped around the ankle, and placed the ponlticc over them to keep them moist. Within an hour tho pain ceased and I slept through the night. The next morning on examin ing the ankle,instead of being swollen, appeared rather less than its natural size; the skin had a wrinkled appear ance, and was very white. My next application of it was to a severe gun shot wound. A bullet ranged through my leg, from near my ankle, so a* to come out on the opposite oiue, jusi. be low tlie knee, catting tho muscles and nerves, and making a long and painful wound. I lost so mncii blood that 1 was carried from the field in an insen sible condition. I sent my servant af ter somo tobacco, enveloped my wounded leg in it, and kept it wet with the clothes over it. In an hour or two the pain subsided, and the heat and the throbbing ceased, and I rested more easily than I hnd been doing. I heard of a number of coses where erysipelas has been cured by persons whose attention I had called to the nse of tobacco. I also, lost summer, whon in New York, by applying large poultices of tobacco to my bip, cured myself of a terribly painful attack of sciatica,which had been greatly aggravated by the treatment of two physicians. One evening, in Washington, I found two of my friends sitting with their boots off. They both were suffering from bpnions of long standing. I advised the use of tobacco, and they sent for it and applied it. Application for a sin gle night made a permanent care, as they have assured me, though two or three year* have elapsed. About two years ago one of tbe North Carolina members of Congress, on my sugges tion, relieved himself in the same man ner, and says there has been no return of the soreness. Corns on the toes can be cured in tike manner. York, he said: “Well, if my present| health contlnnes, it will be some time before the subscription paper will be presented for my benefit; bat if I were jo die to-day I declare I don’t know what my family would do, for I spend all I make, and am cramped at that.” He and the successful banker are of the same age, of the same temperament so far as love of life is concerned, with the same spring of industry at workin their breasts; but the family of one will llvo in aliluenco after his death; the family of tlie other—God help them! How I will they live? m And that makes point number two! I I have just come over from l’hiladel pliia, and in tha wretched apartment vouchsafed us by the Pullman mana gers, crowded to excess, dusty, dirty and uncomfortable. My companion] was a clergyman of the Church of Eng land. A trifling incident made ua ac quaintances, and in the course of onr two hours and a half ride we became, as poor Garfield used to say, “quite chummy.” He told mo that twenty- I seven years ago, whon nn humble la- jborer in tho vineyard of the Lord, he insured his life for tho benefit of his wife, whom he had just married, fori tlie modest sum of $2,000, and tliat he had paid regu'arly his premiums untill six months ago, at which time thecoma paay failed, and he and his were left Lit Ell ALLY OCT IN THE Olt.O, man enters upon net] 'ty, when his business ■ „ are, are should be, established, Is A\SOO.OO By the process of compounding on tho original sum as practiced by the savings banks, where tho money squandered might have been deposited, this sum,when the man attains the age of fifty years, would amount to ten thousand and somo hundred dollars. Now, without taking tlie rum and to bacco business into account at all, it surely ought not to annoy the average writer to put away the $4 a week,which is atl tiiat is necessary to secure this result nt tlie age of fifty years. With out any temperance lecture, without any nicotine suggestion, but on the common sense view, isn't it the duty of every man to put away something every week, so that when ho reaches tlie turning point of fifty years tie will be at least so far independent that if a rainy day, a rainy month or n rainy year comes upon iiim and his he will not be DEPENDENT UPON CBAI1ITY, but can take at liis own expense needed rest, which may insure him years of useful occupation tlierafter ? The other way in which men can look out for themselves in their later life and for their families thereafter, is divided into two views of life insurance, one of which provides for the payment of a certain sum of money to the mahhitn- self when lie shall have attained a cer tain period of life, and is also payable at his death,whenover that may occur, and tho other is the simple ordinary life insurance plan. Peter Cooper told me once that he never allowed a day to pass without saving something—no matter how small the compensation made, he always put away something. Now,there are not many Peter Coopers, and there are not many who are able to resist daily temptation to spend all they make, nor many who, for the sake of tlie comfort of their families hereaf ter, are strong enough mentally todeny them luxuries to-day; and for that rea son—and I judge a majority of my readers by myself—I favor for all liter- i.ry men,whether clergymen or authors or newspaper writers, this system of provision for the future, which, under the benign laws of tlie present day and generation, is hedged about by statu tory provisions which the most expert Hnd ingenious minds here find it diffi cult to evade. I may be pardoned here for calling at tention to a system of so-called co-ope rative life insurance which has come into vogue, and attracts many persons by the cheapness with which insurance payable aft r death can he lind. We tried to do something of that kind here among the writers; but with a lofty spirit of disregard for all sound princi ples which should govern sucli busi ness, no provision was made for tho ac cumulation of assets to guarantee tho fulfillment of our contracts to meet these obligations as they might occur, and our sole reliance was upon assess ments to bo made upon survlvlngmem- bers. Now, that's ail very well for tho first few fellows who dio This, mind you, is n kind of saving that tho man tas to die to win in, and in no way takes hold of hia own future comfort. I joined several o' these associations, and we did a great deal ot good to others, bnt the condition of no one of the asso ciations which I entered is such as to show me any great evidence that my claim, which woo'd be rathe* large, would or even could be met. Take a class o( 250 men, each one of whom agrees to pay $10 at tho death of any one. It is reasonable to suppose that the assessments would be mat for tlie first fifty or sixty deaths, although that ia stretching the point somewhat, bnt who is there among ail tho 230 suffi ciently interested in tbe matter to keep up the class to Its full number? Be cause if, in on organization of 250 men, ten were to die in any specified period, the levy could be met by 240 only, and unless there were some one to canvass among people of the same occapati-n, and approximately the same age, so os to keep the full number 250, up, don’t you see, that atter a while the net re sult would be very small, and by the timo my death notice appeared In the columns ol our esteemed contempora ries, there might not be more than seventy-five of the 250 left, so that I and mine would very decidedly be left. And what is true of these professional ass NMations I greatly fear i* true of the half dozen co-operative nseoclations which are advertised throughout tho country with much high-flown elo quence, and hold out Inducements very flattering, but, it seems to me, very As an individual I was in- aiso- and one to bo turned over to me when I arrive at a specified age, or payable to my heirs in case I die before that period is readied. In view of the mul- titudinosity of cases brought before my eves every day, in view of tho subscrip tion papers rammed under our noses every month, in view of the uncertain ty of life and tho equal uncertainty of death, don’t you agree with mo that it is a good scheme to make some kind of preparation for the future in this world? I can find you in Boston to-morrow a hundred dominies urging you to make provision for the world to come, and I bet a hat I will be the only one who goes before the young men and middle- aged men of Boston to-morrow urging them to make preparation for tho life that is. First, make up your mind what you can afford to pay; second, select some one of the great mutuals of the day, indirect to the agent and say: “Here, I have got so much money; I am so many years old; what' will you agree to pay me in return for tho use of it, nt the expiration of ten or fifteen years?” according to vour probable needs. If you cannot do any better, make arrangement for $5,000; bnt I tell you, when a man reaches tho ago oi fifty-five or sixty a tittle check for $10,- 000, signed*by a competent authority, is a very welcome and delightful addi tion to the modest stipend lie draws from the treasury of his church, or the weekly salary paid him by tlie cashier of the journal for whicli he writes. Mr. William Orton, formerly president of the Western Union Telegraph Cora- pano, died thinking he was worth a -rent deal of money, but if it hadn’t >een for this preciso provision liis fnm- ily wouldn't have had a dollar. All that Horace Greeley’s family had to live on for a long time, while bis prop erty was unprodnetive, was tbe money received from this source. There ia no use talking about it. AVo are. very val uable members of society while wo are alive, and peoplo of mark, but tbe mo ment we lose our grip we become a nuisance, if living, and our families a burden upon onr friends, if dead. I can imagine the cheerful smile that illuminates the countenance of the average reader as he puffs a cigar and sniffs at this advice, but I can’t help that. I feel it isadutythatevery man who has the ear of his fellows owes to his brother workers, and, whatever maybe tho effect,I,at least, have done my duty by you, as I intend to do it by myself.

I drew you a por trait a few weeks back, of a once noted newspaper man new little bet er than a tramp. I told you tbe sad story of the rise, progress, itines?, destitution and hospital death of another, who, in his time, filled with entire satisfaction tbe highest chairs in journalism. I can find in the make of the ministry and writer* not scores alone, hut hundreds of worthy, industrious, respectable old men, the flames of whose fire have long since died away, but whose necessities remain, and who are compelled by hunger, by thirst, by nakedness of themselves and those dependent upon them, to lung upon tbe edges of this busy world in the vein hope that their feeble scratch may obtain for them that which in other daya their vigorotu blows secured in great abundance. 1 am not a very practical man, and it is no easv task to make suggestions that will meel a earefni come to tbe conclusion that there are two ways in which men who make money as rapidly as successful writers do, and who receive such comfortable compensation as th« average clergy men set, may provide, to a certain extent, for their own future, and tolerably well also for those whose comfort and ease and security are dearer to them than life itself. The first plan is the ordina ry savings bank. I don’t intend to render myaelf liable to hypercritical misjndgment in talking about nun and tobacco, but the tact of the business is that thousands of men spread $200 or ing him liable to the extent ol his pe cuniary ability to respond to all obliga tions which may occurduringbismem bership. A cose in point was made by a member who.aiter paying two assess ments,was notified of fonrothers,which lie refused to pay, be claiming that his refusal to pay waa equivalent to his withdrawal from the aasociution. Un fortunately, however, tho court decided that while the neglect to pay an assess ment in fact canceled the membership of the delinquent, yet he was liable for all the assessments previously made, and also for all losses happening prior to tho timo when he ceased to be a member, although no assessment had then been made; and when an action waa brought by the attorney-general, judgment waa given against him, tor tlie amount of the assessments, togeth er with interest from tbe dev they were imposed.

But They Can't Mix American Drinks, New York Sun. Tlie enterprising proprietor of a li quor saloon has at last introduced genu ine English barmaids in New York. It has been along-threatened innovation Tho girls have been at work now for several days, and tlie result is so satis factory thnt it is said that tlie custom will be generally followed in tbe Broad way places up-town. Four regular professional English barmaids were imported lor the purpose. They are all square-shouldered, erect, and pleas ant women, who smile upon the cus tomers with discrimination, and who know nothing about American drinks. Tho saloon in question receives tho patronage of tbe audiences ot soveral theaters,'and it is necessary for the customers to lie Availed on rapidly. When the first-nighters and tbe gener al run of loungers drifted into the place Monday, they were rather surprised at the four women vtho stood smilingly behind tbe bar. Not only were the four barmaids on hand, but one or two traditional barmaid worshipers, whom English novelists have mode familiar even to Americana, stood chatting with them. The men in question were very English in appeoranco, and they lean ed over tho bars and chatted with tbe girls with anairot subdued familiarity. After a girl had served her customer she usually went back and spoke fora moment witli a worshiper. As tbe crowd surged up to the bar two men on tbe lower end succeeded in attracting the attention of perhaps tlie prettiest of the quartet. She rested two dimpled and jeweled bands on the bar, leaned over and said: “What is it, gentle men?” “Whisky and sherry, ploase.” “Whisky nnd sherry, . re|ieated the pretty barmaid, briskly reaching un der the bar. Then she added, witli a still more business-like air: “Do you want them together!” “Together?” asked the elder of the two men, “what do you mean?” “I meant did you want them mixed, you know.” “Who in the dence ever heard of mixing sherry and whisky ? Of course not. 1 want the sherry and my friend the whisky.” "Ab,” said the girl, showing a set of white teeth, “these American drinks are eo peculiar, youknow.” Then she got the whisky before the first man and tlie sherry boforo tlie second, smiled ineeniioualy once more, and said: ( “ Perhaps you’d like a little bitten?” “It’s a go,” said the customer, and she sot a bottle of bitters before them.

THE CODE or 1803. In connection with the fact that the act of 1700 put Georgia ahead of tbo ether S ates in simplifying common law plead- M, “ Roynton'a Cine of Skin logs, it is Interesting to note that Georgia was the fint State in the Union, by marly 20 years, to codify her laws. Louisiana is not to be regarded In this comparison, be cause her jurisprudence alone is baaed on the civil law, which was codified centuries ago. California Is the only other State which has a code. New York baabeen struggling for one for years. The object ot codifica tion la to reduce to precise statement the general principles of the law, and to re move u icertalnty by settling disputed questions. It is a singular proof of the success and ability with which the code was constructed in 18U3that It eeltlcs four out of five questions which tbe American Late litctew for October selects ss illustra tions of tbe value of codification. suiaa THE STATE. Tho Federal constitution provides that citizens of one Stale cannot sue another State in the Federal Courts. But Judge Hughes, in tbe Circuit Court of Virginia, has recently thrown out a strong intima tion that citizens of a State can sue that State in the Federal court, provided their rights arise under the constitution and laws of the United States.

BUSINESS URIXCIPLES. Governor Cleveland compressed the whole subject of ;>oliticnl reform into one sentence when he said that the country demanded that the government should be administered on business principles. The tvhole subject of law reform is embraced in the simple idea of administering the law on business principles—directness, promptness, efficiency, economy. It seems strange that the lawyers, gener ally. do not realise how great a pecuniary interest they have in promoting tlie efficiency ot the courts, so as to make them auxiliaries ot the business of the country. The profession is losing money very day which it might make ii tho law- id its work better and with some sort of speed. “Great is Diann of the Ephesians for by this craft we have our living.” can not lie said much longer unless the use fulness of law to modern business and civilization is increased. “AH OVEtt-TAXID juror" sends me a note complaining that, with tlie jury list reduced by exemptions nnd the omissions made by the commissioners, he is too utterly “put upon” in the matter ol jury duty. It is easy enough to seo the remedy, but until “that pleasing*hope, that fond desire of (official) immortality” shall ceare to sway tho legislative inlmi. no one need l-.opo to see it “materialized.” I can only advise him for consolation to read two hooks: (1) -Tho Wasps.” by Aristophanes. There he will find that in ancient Athens, jury duty was so eagerly .“Might that tho great satirist of the day (elt impelled to ridicule the anxiety to rerve. A son was forced to look up his father, who had n mania for tho courts. (An Athens juryman got* free ticket to the theatres.) (2) “Lord Broughsiu’s I’o- I'tleal Philosophy," showing Unit everv citizen ought to prize jury service as ah opportunity of learning tbe la* of the land. This reading will show him how great a privilege he enjoys. INSURANCE LAW. The recent epidemic of fires will cause many a man, who never did so before, to read the fine print In his insurance policy. A late caae rules the following point*: 1. In warranties or representation, the appli cant only aasnmes responsibility for their troth so far as the fact* are known to him and material to his risk. Z When a ques tion la notanswarad, tt la to be interred that there was nothing which required an answer. 3. Conditions that wurk a for feiture are to be con.trntd most liberally for tha assured: 4. The materiality ot a representation is a question of fact. The tint lathe probable effect of the represen tation upon the judgment of the lnsnrer. 5. The Insurer cannot take advantage of the minority ot the assured. 0. When an insurer has notice of a breach of a con. dltlon which would avoid the policy bnt fails to cancel It and receives money there on, the breach la waived. MISOILLAXY.
