SATURDAY. - - JANUARY 18, 1896
By the president's proclamation Utah
becomes an independent state of this in
diesoluble Union. Forty-fifth in the
order of time, eays the Tribune, it is not
an exaggeration to say that the new
commonwealth ia anions the first in
prospects. It poss-oses an immense ter
ritory, rich and multifarious resource?, a
climate admirably adapted to their de
velopment, an energetic and thrifty peo
ple to supply the necessary brains and
rnuecle, strong attractions for capital
and special inducements to immigra
tion. The population in 1890 was 208,
000, and is now supposed to be not much
less than 250,000. Excluding two;or
three of the "original thirteen," only
four states have entered the Union with
a larger population than Utah Maine,
"Wisconsin, South Dakota and Washing
ton and five of its predecessor? have
fewer inhabitants today Nevada, Wy
oming,,. Idaho, Montana and North Da
lota. Unquestionably, Utah would
have been a state long ago except for its
"peculiar institution." It is interesting
to reflect with what rapidity an obstacle
which only a few years ago eemed in
- surmountable has disappeared. The ap
prehension that political considerations
might at some time avail to procure for
polygamy the permanent protection of a
sovereign state long disturbed many
thoughtful minds. The admission of
Utah to the Union is not now supposed
by anybody to involve the slightest risk
of that misfortuno. Its constitution
explicitly forbids plural marriages for
ever, and there is not a shadow of rea
son to doubt either the good faith ot the
people in adopting it or the stability of
the prohibition .
How long the Mormon element will
retain its supremacy against the influ
ences proceeding from a rapid growth of
population and a corresponding develop
ment of material resources the future
alone ran determine. There is no need
for uneasiness on that score. In spite
of its most notorious tenet, the Mormon
faith has at least been compatible with,
if it has not been productive of, some ad
mirable civil qualities, which have been
uniformly illustrated in the history of
the territory, and which have now found
expression in the constitution of the
state. Thatinstrnment in decreeing the
"political equality of the sexes is destined
to subject the policy of woman suff
rage to a more important test than it
has had hitherto, but it is not revolu
tionary in any other sense or degree. In
fact, except for the judicial experiment
of a trial jury of eight persons, three
fourths of whom uiay render a verdict in
civil, but not in criminal cases, the or
ganic law of Utah is essentially conser
vative. It provides liberally for a free
school system, but sets a strict limit to
state and municipal indebtedness, gives
meagre salaiies though a long tenure to
state officers, prohibits trusts, preserves
the forests and defineB as a crime any
interference with the right to obtain and
njoy employment. It appears upon
the face of it to provide a prudent,
equitable basis for the administration of
public affairs, and ia not likely to need
an nnusual amount of revision.
The new state deserves a hearty wel
come. It is to be regretted that a serious
attempt was not made to end the pres
ent discredit and the dismal products
which the degeneration of Nevada has
produced by inducing that state to con
sent to incorporation with its progress
ive neighbor. Of course Nevada could
not have been coerced into such an ar
rangement, but a fair consideration of
its prospective advantages might have
persuaded the people of a decaying com
monwealth to accept them. But aa we
nave said before, Utah is not to blame
for the neglect of this opportunity. The
forty-fifth state has amply earned auto
nomy, and we have no doubt will exer
cise its sovereign powers for the honor
and benefit of all.
The population of Oregon, according
to the census just completed by the
county assessor, is 302,762.. - The in
crease over the government census of
J.890 is 48,995 and there is no danger of
the present census being an over esti
mate. Oregon is growing at a satisfac
tory rate despite the hard times.
Bluestem wheat went up to 50 cents
ia Walla Walla , yesterday. In the
morning the price opened at 41 cents,
bat in a few jumps touched the half dol
lar mark. Over 100,000 bushels changed
hands during the day. Unless the
causes of the rise are purely local, the
farmera of this region, who have not yet
sold, can expect a higher price.' The
wheat market will justify close attention
just at present.
Rimarks by nan. E. 1,. Smith.
A portion of the address delivered by
President E. L. Smith at the fruit con
vention in Portland contains some mat
ters of interest to the fruit-growers of
Wasco county. The address was well
received by the fruit men. The conclu
sion, which we reproduce, appeared in
"The past year's experience has am
ply demonstrated to me the fact that
the greatest impediment to progressive,
successful fruit culture is the apathy and
indifference of those engaged in the
"Indeed, I feel that during the year
we have taken a step backward, not
only in the work of our society, but in
the removal of the office of the state
board from the metropolis to a place
where it is not readily accessible to the
eastern portion of the state nor to those
coming from other states with a view of
engaging in the fruit industry.
"Your chairman does not share in the
opinion that there is no field of labor
for. a state horticulture society in Ore
gon. Many of us who are devoting
time and means to orcharding would
welcome and find invaluable the meth
ods and experience of other growers
The state horticultural society, in this
as well as other states, should be the
vehicle of important educational work
Mistakes would be avoided, errors cor
rected and failures averted, if we could
popularize the experimental work of the
general government and the more valu
able field work carried on in our state.
Artificial fertilizers are rapidly coming
into use, and their sale should be sub
ject to state regulation, so that we may
know what we buy. Our laws and the
entailment of them relative to the in
teresls ot the fruit industry are new,
and hence imperfect, and the State Hor
ticulture Society should be the place for
critical discussion of these and kindred
subjects of legislation .of the greatest
"It is doubtful if any portion of our
country can show a greater percentage
of arable soil adapted to gardening, and
I use the word in its comparative sense,
than Oregon: and it will indeed be
lamentable if we neglect any means to
promote this most promising industry."
