We are satisfied that the Mormon
qsestion must beoome,- sooner or
lafterL' one of the inost important
p ssibl y t M most Important that the;
ti deal with. It is simply impossible
Mormonism : can - be ignored '
ach loDger. It .will not agree to
ignored, because it is aggresBive,
willed ' and wicked. " President
aifiehl, in his inaugural, took ground.
jo stifles the confident expects-,
that, he will tackle the. mon-
rous aiigma and blight. He gave
hi " it was his determination to
ert the power of the Government
ir its suppression. i
It is not denied that the difficulties
he way of ; its suppression ' are
pfeculisr and - formidable. . - Probably
up living statesman is equal to the
sk of furnishing the right solution.
Whilst it is admitted, on all sides
bat the great evil ought to be extir
pined, and many . suggestions, have
ueen made, after all the difficulties
appear to remain ana trie solution
j -
We have before pointed. to
some of the proposed remedies and the
1 imouiUes environing them. Il ls held
. oneraily by tboes who have investi-
fated the matter that there - can be
:o cure as long as the present jury
vstem exists in Utah. As Mormons
- , .....
tompose always a majority of juries
ha of causes in which Mormons are
soncerned is but little better, if any,
han a farce.. It is proposed, in view
f this fact, to wipe ont Utah from
he map and let it be absorbed in ad- J
oioing Territories or States. In this
way it would be possible for cases to.
be tried at Salt Lake City to be re-
raoved to other places and the. pecu-
iar complexion of juries could be
hanged. This , is one of; the sug
gested remedies. r-,:-; s i- i
There is to be another plan pro
posed. .. . It is. believed when the next
Congress is organized that a bill wil
be introduced to. change the form of
governments ' "he purpose, is Tto get
rid of. , Governor and Judges and to
place' the entire government.' of the
Territory in the hlmds of a Commis
sion to be composed of seven persons
to be named by the Pr? sidentl There
eould be many objections ; urged to.
this plan. tlt j8nbyel, untried, con
trary to usage, and subversive of the
ancient order of things. Governing
States and Territories by assort of
Star Chamber would - not .be, agreea
ble to the free people 'of America,' it
strikes us. :Then .again.: it gives the:
President additional, power, a thing3
not to be desiderated just tat this
time, if ever. r The bill to be pro
posed contemplates further disfran
chising all polygamists, men and wo
men also, as the latter are allowed to

If Jth, serious 1 illness r of Lord
Beaconsfield should terminate: fatally
it would have very great influence
upon lithe political t fortunes ot; his
party; we suppose, tie has . been so
long a time the leader of the Tories
or Conservatives, as they now prefer
to, call.-: themselves, and is by suoh a
great "distance the first man in ability,
'courage, and' resource amons all the
prominent men of his party, that his
deatbt could hot fail to be a great
blow to their hopes. , He cannot con
tinue bntafew years in active leader
ship, lorhe is now some : seventy-six
or Beyenty-aeven yearsof age, But
his loss just now would be irreparable.
ie party of the aristoorata and largo
landed proprietors might not be able
to fallyT injBqfilcieht forcq fpr;a lobg
from ! power. But Lord" Beacons-
field's death would not only deprive
the Tory party o; iu inost ; f signal
eadership and be 'almost certain to
prevent . its return to power within
any reasonable time, but it would re
move from British politics the', most
aggressive, dashing and reckless of
eaders. In this particular England
woald be benefited. ; .:
But whilst the leader of one" party
is sick, perhaps fatally, the 'great
eader of the other party is reported
as breaking down rapidly under the
cares of office., ; Now jn 7 his aeventy-
first year Mr. Gladstone is doing the
work;' of two industrious ' and able
men. His recent lau nas also provea
hurtful to his constitution.. I If we
may trust -London ? correspondeots
there can be no doubt that the great
Liberal .Premier ; is ageing rapidly
and growing weak very fast: tinder
the very severe task that is laid upon
him. y He was averse to taking office
again, and it would have been much
better for him if he had remained in
retirement cultivating literature and
his farm. His death would prove a
very eeriom blow j to his party; but,
great as he is, it is not without other
very j ' able leaders, and possibly it '
would . not be as disastrous to the
cause of progress and reform as would
the death of his j great rival , prove
disastrous to the hopes of the Tory
Vartyf ' -
When Beaconsfield and Gladstone
pass away tne two most remarfcaoie
Englishmen of the last fifty years
will have gone - to their final audit.
England is never without men bf
high culture and superior abilities.
She has now many able men, but
none so marked as leaders as these
roj! , venerable statesmen. , John
Bright, in some respects, a greater
orator than either or the two , we
have named, is in .rather infirm
health, and is himself an old man. ..
But after all, however useful or
illustrious or potential a man may be
in his day and generation, and how
ever necessary he may be deemed for
the welfare and glory of his country,
his place is : somehow quickly supplied,-
and as Joe Jefferson says
whilst .personating Rip Van Winkle,
in tones of wonderful pathos, "are we
so' soon forgotten." It is true that the
impress of men of colossal minds is
not removed speedily, and in case of
great creative genius ' the influence
and power continue all down the
ages shaping men's thoughts and even
moulding their- destiniesv But - with
most men of ability their influence is
limited and transitory and : their
memories soon pass away. Mr. Glad
stone is. not of 'this number, we feel
assured. .7 Mis . writings will keep his'
memory green for a oentury, whilst
isgreat reform measures will eter
nize his nname among, the greatest,
purest and ' wisest of British . states-
men. We trust that the great Libe-.
ral leader : will - live i many years
to come, and that wheTTTiis work is
ended the God of ; nations will raise
up some other pure, able, consecrated
leader to carry on the immense work
of reform begun1 and so much ad
vanced bv William E. Gladstone.
