OFFICIAL DOUBTS ABOUT THE UTAH NEWS.
The Washington Union says: "It is hardly necessary to say that we distrust the telegraphic news which an-nounces the capitulation of the Mormons and the estab-lishment of peace in Utah. It is not improbable that Mr. Kane, who is but a private person, having no com-mission of any sort from the Government, has succeeded, through his mysterious personal relations with the Mor-mons, in inducing that people to invite Governor Cum-ming to Salt Lake City, and to recognize his official au-thority. If this be so, and Governor Cumming has actu-ally proceeded to the Mormon city, some armistice or truce may hereafter result from his presence in the city; but it is altogether improbable that the war has come to the sudden and abrupt termination announced by the tel-egraph. These advices, through private channels, it must be remembered, are unaccompanied, as usual, by concurrent advices through official channels; for no con-firmation has been received of them by the Government."
