AS A ROMANCE
Dr. Padon's Second Lecture on the
Authenticity of the Book of
Dr. Padcn had a large congregation at
tho First Presbyterian church last night
to hoar the continuation of his sermon (of
tho preceding Sunday. It will bo rcmem
berod that on that occnslon ho giivo nn
explanation of the story sot forth In the
Third Book of XephI, reading character
istic passages so that his hearers might
Judgo for themselves whether it was lit
to be classed In tho same category aa
tho real gospels. '
In opening his sermon of last night, he
recalled their attention to this, asking tho
question: "Docs It seem to you 111 to bo
i called a fifth gospel?"' He recapitulated
tho main points that ho had called at
tention to. this time adding comments on
tho bearing they had to tin; points under
"As 1 read through the fourfold ad
dresses, did you noto any new saying
which you would be ready to class with
tho. accredited words of Jesus? In the
ovudo accounts of wars with the secret
society of Gadcanton and the other af
fairs which occupy seven whole chapters
of this supposed gospel, does It not occur
to you that these seven chapters ore
hardly what we would expect of n fifth
gospel? I left you to compare tho
rhotorlcnl ond diffuse cries recorded by
Ncphi at the close of the dark hours of
crucifixion, with the poven brief words
recorded In the accepted gospels. Even
thn COmnnrlsnn wna Inn nr.ir I ho vrrr nf
the profane to be pressed."
Dr. Padcn also commented on the ex
aggerated emphasis given to srenery,
manners and morals given in the account:
to the prominence given to manner and
forms In the supposed teachings of Jesus.
Ho also called attention to tho fact that
somo seven of the thirty chapters are
quoted almost verbatim from the sermon
on the mount, and that where occasion
did call for a variety tho language of Ne
phl was far Inferior to the stnndnrd of
tho accepted gospels. N'ephl's false In
terpretation of ih? last verses of St.
John ho characterized as a triple mistake,
as no Intelligent Interpreter of the Scrip
tures now believes that John did not die,
hut "went on living as a sort of wander
"As for Nepal's teachings concerning
tho lost tribes, we denied that It was true.
Wo are willing to admit, however, that
this point of doctrine Is very Important
to those who accept tho Book of Mormon!
For If the aboriginal Inhabitants of
America, be they living Indians or tho
slaughtered Nephltes, are not. In the
main, descendants of Abraham, the whole
book Is a fiction.
"I now wish to call your attention to
another failure of tho gospel according
to NcphI In Its lack of local color. Bv
way of Illustration I quote from Rcnan's
'Ufo of Jesus." The scientific commis
sion for the exploration of ancient Phoe
nicia, of which I was a director. Jed mo
to rcsldo on tho frontiers of Galilee and
to traverse It frequently. I have traveled
through the land of tho four gospels In
overy direction: I have visited Jerusalem,
Hebron and Samaria All the history
which at a distance seems floating. In the
clouds of nn unreal world, thus assumed
a body, a solidity, which astonished me;
tho striking accord of the texts and
placefl, the wonderful harmony of tho
evangelical Ideal with tho landscape
which served as Its setting, were to me
a revelation. Evidence that our gospels
aro true aro scored and scarred Into tho
lands; tho natural scenery of them Is the
natural scenery of Palestine.
"I have not been nble to find an edi
tion of the Book of Mormon with maps
in It, nor have I been able to find with
i perfect surety tho location of tho land In
which Christ Is supposed to havo ap
peared to tho Nephltcs. Contrast the
realistic definitions of our gospels and tho
romance-llko Indeilnlteness or the gospel
according to Nephl. When wo come to
search for tho landmarks wo aro still
more at sea so much at sea, In fact, that
we are asked to fall back on Ncphl's
declaration that tho great cities of Zara
holma, Moroni and others wero burned,
sunk in tho depths of the sea, covered
with earth, or shaken till tho buildings
thereof had fallen and tho places left
desolate. Wo find almost nothing which
would fit with a tropical climate; In fact,
tho general descriptions would better
coincide with Pennsylvania or New York.
In one case ho makes mention of horses
being mado use j6t In a procession, where
as we know that horses were not Import
ed Into America until tho advent of tho
"Tho whole nttompt to account for the
vagaries of Nephlte geography, or its
seeming disagreement or failure to con
nect with tropical South America, is an
exposition of tho weakness of tho claim
mado by the Book of Nephl and tho wholo
Book of Mormon to be a trustworthy
document. Indeed, the whole history1 and
make-up of the story seems to Indlcato a
determination to put Its claims beyond tho
touch of realistic teaching."

SALT LAKE ACTOR
DEAD IN DETROIT
Asphyxiated in His Room, After Suf

A dispatch from Detroit, Mich., re
colvcd yes-terday afternoon, announced
tho death of Robert Loland, a promising
young actor and playwright, who. was
found J ii his room at a lodging-house- on
Columbia street. Leland was tho profes
sional name of William B Smodley. who
Is well known In Salt Lake, and whoso
father. William E. Smedloy, Is a promi
nent business man In this city.
The room In which young Smedloy was
found was filled with gas from tho gas
Jet and death was duo to asphyxiation.
Ho was last seen alivo Thursday after
noon, and it is thought that his death oc
curred Thursday night. A nole was found
on a table in the room, which said:
"My only request Is that 1 bo burled
here at the expense of the city. 1 havo
no money. 1 have spent many hundreds
of dollars while hero as a member of
various theatrical companies. Don't no
tify my parents. It Is unnecessary."
On the back of the noto he had written
that weakness and lllncsw as the result
of nn operation for appendicitis and nn
attack 6f typhoid fovor had Incapacitated
him for work. Tie stated that ho played
a leading rolo In "The Chaperons" last
The deceased was horn at Fort Leaven

playwright. lie was for a long tlmo with

ADVERTISE EVERY DAY,
Why It Pays Bettor Than Sporadic
Advertising A Merchant's
Certain of Salt Lake City's largest ad
vertisers have been experimenting upon
tho enterpriso of nowspapor advertising.
One, of them declares that while Intelli
gent advertising upon two -or threo days
In the week pays, brings good returns, an
advertisement every day in The Tribune,
as ho has tried ij, gives many times tho
returns for tho Investment.
"And I will tell you why," said he to a
Tribune rcportor last night. "When u
man or woman wants to make a purchase
he or she naturally picks up The Tribune
of the day upon which the necessity or de
sire to purchase enters tho mind. A largo
advertiser, the largest dealer In the goods
to be purchased, may not have his ad. In
that Issue; but a smaller dealer or one
having higher prices, may havo his ad.
there, and, of course, that man catches
"Thousands of renders overy dav desiring
to make purchases, pick up The Tribune
to consult Its advertising columns," con
tinued the merchant, "and those who havo
their ads. In tho issuo examined by tho
purchasers get the trade. The Irregular
advertiser gets those who look through tho
paper for attractions on the days only
when their ads. appear. Do you see?'
Now, the merchant who has ' his ad. In
every day attracts the attention of nil
readers looking for purchases. So that
the merchant who advertises say twice or
threo times a week gets only two or three
sevenths of tho attention of purchasers.
Of course, tho Sunday Issuo has tho larg
est circulation and Is most carefully read,
for readers have more time on Sunday to
consult as to purchasers; but I have found
that a constant, every-dny ad. gets the
business or at least tho attention of every
ono whq upon nny day examines tho news
paper for purchasers.
"The other day a man camo Into my
store and asked mo where ho should go to
get his watch repaired. Ho said he had
looked over the columns of his two morn
ing papers and found no ad. 'I look
through the papers almost every day, said
he, 'for tho name of some dealer or re
pairer, but I seldom see the name on tho
very day that I want help. So I havo con
cluded to make a memo. In my dairy, and
whon I want something I will know where
to go.' "

but these now accessions aro oven finer.
They arrived last week In the yards at

Tho police aro confident that In Raymond
Wright and Arthur Bocco, young men
about 20 and 21 years old, thoy have tho
culprits who at First North and Main
otrects, Saturday night, held up and at
tempted to rob Miss Allison, .a young wo
man employed as a milliner In tho Z. C.

by, rendy to render aid to his pal should
there have been a chance of securing

Tho hold-up took placo about 10 o'clock
Saturday night, when Miss Allison was
on tho way from tho store to her board

and FlrsL West streets. Hearing somo

at tho corner of Main and First North, thu
young lady stepped to one side to permit
tho approaching pedestrian to pass, whon
8ho was suddenly confronted by a shab
Ibly dressed young man, with one hand In
his hip pocket, who ordered her to throw
up her hands. At the same tlno tho ruf
fian grabbed ono of Miss Allison's hands
"Where is your purse?"
The young lady happened to havo no
purso with her, and upon another woman
coming Into vlow further down tho street
at this Juncture, tho hold-up left tho badly-frightened
girl. Upon meeting the. wo

warned her that thero were hold-ups In
tho direction she was going, nnd while

OUR "ASSESSOR" IS

Tho housewives of Salt Lako- may

Many persons ask what "Deseret"
means, sening tho word used so generous
ly In tho Stato of Utah. I am told that
"Inspiration" detlnes It "honey-beo" and It
la said to mean Industry. There are those
who contend that the word in fact means
nothing more nor less than a small desert.
It Is not known positively whether tho
word was colnod by tho Mormon pioneers,
but the general belief is that It was.
As early as 1S51 an attempt was mado
to creato a State out of the greater part
of the mountain country now within tho
States of Washington. Oregon, Idaho.
Montana. Wyoming. Colorado and tho
present State of Utah, to bo called "Des
eret," but Congress would not admit such
a vast country and tho following year tho
Territory of Utah was organized and rec
ognized. The present State derived its name from
the Piute, or Uto Indians.
There le always moro or less complaint
about "clicks" and "rings" In political cir
cles, but tho Bcpubllcan county commit

to the State convention this year. Even
tho delegates will be selected at tho dis
trict primaries. If this Is not "keeping

If it wasn't for the J'2S0 each a month

than a famished cat wore it not for the

to keep many of the faithful on tho rolls.

Editor Frank Cannon says that the "old BH
resident" who has rclatod an Incident of HiVJ
Brlgham Young's experience on "Ensign, tr1?! HjjW
peak," wherein tho Mormon pioneer is HjS
said to have displayed thereon an ensign jH
mado from parts of tho flags of several qf
tho lending nations, knows nothing about
tho history of that matter. He declares
that the thig of tho United States was
planted thero, at the suggestion of Presl
dent Young, by Apostle Wilfred Woodruff.
and that tho Territory was thereupon
claimed in the name of our countrv.
This statement is disputed, it now ap
pears, by many of thoso of this cltv who
are understood to Ik; familiar with tho
history of Utah, and It is presumed that
becauso of soveral circumstances entering '
Into the question of an altogether unpleaa-
ant nature that the incident will always
bo a point of contention. K,l
But since the planting of tho ensign on
tho peak Is said to havu been In tho year
1817. it Is somewhat singular that any In- !
telllgent man would assume to claim any V M
territory hereabout in tho numo of the mm
United States. Mm
There Ik a bit of pretty well established Mm
history that this same United States had M Hm
at that tlmo undisputed right over that W MM
Urrltory, and to assume to claim another I mm
foot of It in its numo would lay ono onen 1 mm
to ridicule to say the least.
