Salt LakCCcty, April 8. At the Mor
tnon general conference at Ijgan yesterday
afternoon a general epistle to the church
was read from Presidents Taylor and Can
non of the first presidency, Referring to
the present condition of affairs In tho
polygamy prosecutions, It says: Men of
pure lives set examples worthy of the emu
lation of all I Ires and lead to works of
righteousness. Citizens of, the highest
t)pesof character hao Wen selected ss
victims of vile persecution, as crlmliuls of
the lowest grades. Juries aro selected for
the oxptcis purjioso ot convicting men
prominent Tn the church. , Their partisan
bias Is so thoroughly known In the commu

butnow the burden of proof rested upon the
accused, lu.ncany every instance the
Judge and Jury aro equally with tho prose
cution, appearlug' to view him ss guilty
nnd requiring hhn to furnb.li proofs of his
Innocence. Jurors aro selected who are
enemies of tho parties accused, or of tin
prlnclnlcs Imotved In tho trial. The re
sult Is that a Mormon Is always as
safii In seeking tho Justlco of tho Infernal
regions or ot Algcrlne pirates as that of
courts of such a character. Indictments
arc found on the flimsiest evidence. The
result Is a reign of terror has prevailed,
tnd It continues in Utah. Considering
mat tney nave no chance ror a fair trial,
men hate Considered It better to avoid nrrciit
until there Is a prospect of receiving Im
partial Justice." It considers these vlo-'
lent prosecutions as only Intended to pro
voke tho iwople to commit some overt act
whereby the Incoming administration will
be embarrassed; refers to the Imprisonment
ot elders In Arizona and considers the pro
ceedings 'so outrageous that no men
who anticipated being accused dare submit
to such treatment, and many left their
homes for foreign lands. It continues:
"President Taylor remained home until per
ceiving a determination on tho part of cer
tain Federal ofllclals here to embarrass am'
harass every prominent man here, and bo
lng Informed of thicats against his liberty,
ho deemed If wlss to withdraw for awhile.

but If the laws enacted to entrap lis becauso

was descended from a polygamic source,
and so did many of God's favorite child

English Government putting down the
suttee, and that consequently this Govern
ment should put down polygamy, and says:
"If Congressmen would Investigate thoy

Mr. Fcaraoa was made after a patient ex

the charges against him, and bis answer
to the same, which was sestcrday sub
rattled and read by the President. The

a complete vindication of the Postmaster.
It is further stated that Mr. Pearson's
reappointment will constitute a notable
exception to the course which the Presi

Tho New York Post-office Is the largest

of Interest to all people, especially the
vast ousiness enterprises centered In the

This condition has been brought about
largely by tho intelligent effort of Mr,
Pearson, who Is thus Identified In tha

success of reform. To retain him Insures
faith and confidence In the inurement,
which would receive a shock from bis re

vessel o'f tho mercnant ser

transport. Thero had been pound of
preparations all night Heavy armored
chests wera dragged here and thore, and
cases ot cutlasses and small arms were
stowed away for the use of the United

rines. Boxes ot clothing, soldiers' kits,
great bundles of canvas for tents, cases
and barrels ot provisions, and all tho
rxanlftid evidences of preparation for a
voyage which might have anything but a
peaceful termination wero scattered
about the decks.
Busy little navy-yard tug had been
(teaming alongside the long black hull ot
the steamship all night with naval
store and tbo energies of tho men were
taxed to the utmost, but as morning
progressed the decks were gradually
cleared, the hum cf preparation bad died
away, and the steamship was ready to re

Meanwhile there had been but little
sleep at tbo navy yard. Preparations
were going on continually, despite the
rule governing the hour of sleep and
rising. The barracks wero the places
where gossip was rlfo last night. It was
the first chance for service many ot the
men bad ever had, and tho selected ones
were envied by their less fortunate com

post volunteered to go on tbo expedition.
Large crowds of ladle and gentlemen

to witness the departure.
