Gros- a air and action." President Grant's dminfetratioa is beyond all praise in the two most important departments which in time of peace are under the President's control. Its financial management has been such a splendid suc- ce nattne omy criticism oi nis enemies is iut its success has been too great They charse that the debt is being paid too rapid ly, forgetting that the country is prospering under the policy of honestly paying our creditors, lhe revenue was- never more economically collected, and never have de- foriltftwi lwT, mnw totvaii cl tr TMinicYlfvl The other department of the government to which a President must give especial atten tion is the enforcement of the laws, and it is cheering to see the vigor with which the President is doing his duty, even where it is embarrassing to do it. Where the laws are forcibly resisted by armed bands he has not hesitated to ' take extreme meas ures to suppress the lawless Ku-klux hordes. And now in Utah he is doing what no administration has ever dared to do before. He allows no temponz in2 policy. He makes no terms with law breakers, but enfbrces the . law without regard on whom it may fall. For years have we been disgraced as a nation by the barbarism of polygamy and" murder.: projected upon our generation and our civilization. But now 'one Mormon leader has been condemned to fine and imprisonment for having three wives, and indictments' for adultery and murder are brought against Brigham Young, and we are told that he has fled from the city. We would ask the Governor of New "i ork whether there are no laws against lewdness which a kindred faithfulness would require him to apply tda more shameless community in this State a community whose system or complex mar riage is a stage more barbarous than polvp- amy. x . xnuepenuem,
