The Mormon Delegate.
Submitted to the crucial test of
technical law, none are prepared
to say whether the decision of
Governor Murray of Utah, in (le
aving' a certificate of election to
George Q. Cannon, as a delegate
to congress, would stand or not.
Every one but a polygamist would
admit its justice, however. It is
a matter of common report that
Cannon has three or four wives,
and it is as well known as can be
that hundreds, if not thousands, of
other Mormons are often wedded
and living in open violation of the
laws of the county; and yet, s
hedjred in are the members of that
church, that it is found to be al
most an impossibility to convict a
polygamist in a court of justice.
I lie aravamen of the indictment
against Cannon is contained in
the allegation of Allen G. Camp
bell, who is contesting seat.
It sets forth, to-wit:
That he is not a citizen of the
United States, and being a polyga
mist, is not capnble of becoming u
citizen in good faith.
This is a brief but pertinent
presentment of the whole matter.
Cannon claims that he was duly
naturalized twenty -six years ago.
If Campbell can make it appear
that he was never naturalized at
all, this will be sufficient to unseat
him, even were the certificate of
election given him, which Gover
nor Murray refuses to issue. His
refusal is based on the plea that a
careful perusal of the county
records, about the time Cannon as
serts he was naturalized, fail to
disclose any such fact. The cer
tificate of election was therefore
issued to Allen G. Campbell, asau
American citizen in every way
qualified to fill the position of
delegate. The question as to which
of the two men are entitled to the
seat will be ruled upon by the
house of representatives, which
will be enabled to act free of all
party bias, since a delegate has no
vote. Congress has long chafed
ptf t seeing its laws openly set at de
nance by the Mormons, and it is
only fair to presume it will be
glad to have some pretext for deal
ing polygamy a heavy blow. Can
non has been in the lower house
of congress for several terms. It
lo6ks as if the present session
would be his last.

Disiufectaon for Scarlet Fever, Diph
Your excellent remarks in Tues
days issue in regard to scarlet
fever and tin? management of con
valescents deserve careful atten
tion. Patients should le carefully
isolated, as you say, until the skin
has regained it.s normal appear
ance. People cannot be too care
ful, and it is far better to err on
the safe side.
Your remarks on disinfection
are such as auv one would have
made who had not given the mai
mer some special attention. It is
the special business of medical
men to keep pace with the most
advanced ideas in such matters
ami, with your kind permission, I
will rive vou bnellv some of the
recent investigations on the sub
ject of fumigation and disinfection.
About eighteen months ago a
national hoard of health, consist
ing of eleven members, was ap
pointed by congress, abundant
means placed at its command, and
its duties were especially to ex
amine vellow fever and other con
tagious diseases, establish quaran
tine, etc., with a view to preventing
their introduction and spread, to
root out latent seeds after an ei-
deaiic and, in short, to do anything
wmch the public good demanded.
An enormous amount of work has
already been accomplished by this
board. 1 hey nave had exhaustive
surveys made of several cities, rec
ommending entire new systems
of drainage; sent a commission to
Cuba to study yellow lever in its
native haunts; and done many
thing not relevant to my subject.
As one item of their vast labors
they instituted a series of careful
and elaborate experiments to de
termine the disinfectant proper
ties of vaiious substances. First
they analyzed numerous patent or
proprietary compounds, and the
result played sad havoc with some
of them. Then thev engaged Dr.
George . Sternberg, surgeon,
U. S. A., to determine by actual
experiment what would destroy
disease germs. These experi
ments are highly interesting, even
to the non-medical reader, but can
not be given in a short article.
Partly from Sternberg's expe
riment and partly from other re
liable sources the board have reach
ed the following conclusions, which
may be taken as the most advanc
ed thought of the day on this sub
ject: Disinfection is the destruction
of the prisons of infections and
Dedorizcrs, or substances which
destroy smells, are not necessarily
disinfectants: and disinfectants do
not necessarily have an odor.
Disinfection cannot compensate
for want of cleanliness or ventila

First Clothing, towels, bed linen,

Second All discharges should either
be received in vessels containing the

cleansed with the same solution.
Third Cellars, yards, stables, gut
ters, privies, cesspools, water-closets,

large quantities, hang a basket con

Letters from the Peeple.
On Hit Sriiic orWiiiil.
An article on changes of clim
ate, going the rounds of the press,
appeared in Tiik Astokiax De
cember lth on a subject of vast
importance, and 1 hope that it will I
receive the attention it deserves
from the intelligence of the coast.
YYe hear the remark verv often
from old settlers on the censt: J
"The climate must be changing,
we did not have this kind of
weather in former years." If we
examine as to the causes of warm
winters on this coast, the principle
one is found to be the immense
growth of timber. If it were not
for that, the country lying west of
the coast range would be more,
drv, colder, and simply a continua
tion of summer, with this differ-
ence: Hint us the sun withdraws i i"n complaint.-, ..o cents ami i ;l mn-

on the western slopes cause an up

of the current is greatest near the
equator, as more rays are received
there; and it becomes weaker and
finally ce:ises entirely as we pass
north. The air goinjr to fill the
partial vacuum caused by the as
cending current creates near the
cmuuor a wvst wind, as we con

west nnd south, bringing the warm
rains. In order to have some idea
of the amount of heat given off
in a storm of rain it is only neces
sary to think how much would be
needed to raise the same amount
of water that falls during a storm
to steam. Prof. IIega!es theory
of denuding the country to the
I north seems not to be a correct
theory for the reason that the sun
would have but little effect on it,
especially during the winter seas
on when the south winds are ex
pected, and most needed. The
forests would pnxluce more rain
and south wind than bare ground
would at any time. Denuding the
land to the south, would cause the
wind to take a more direct course,
leaving out the denuded region,
