It -was an interesting description of a
I subjeot that all present were very ans- j
ious to hear about,
i As Lange as Texas,
j Chaplain Axton described the Islands,
j -which in area compares with the Stato
of Texas. Thea' are Inhabited by
three tribes, as different Jts they can
be. These three, are the Moros, the
VIsayaa and the Tagalogs. "With the
, Moros we have Itad our lighters. Being
'.Mohammedans their bible Is the
Korean, and their hold the principles
of the Korean in a. distorted light on all
subjects. They albhor -work, and avoid
it by every menus in their power.
Slaves have hitherto done all their
work for them and on this principle
i their life Is based. In reality they are
1 only about as good Mohammedans ns
the other races are cood Catholics.
, They prefers Ishunlsm as the others
profess Roman Cuthlocism, or as they
have professed It in the past, for under
the direction of Archbishop Hardy, who
is now at Ihe hood of the church in

merly ruled in tbe islands aru being
changed almost beyond recognition.
Polygamy Is, of course, one of tho
vices of these Moron, who see no hami

Priests "Were Immoral.
Tho speifikcr then went on to describe
the tribes who profess Christianity as
It was taught them by the Spaniards.
"Based ojn superstition the church in
the lslamlu to honeycombed with Im
morality. Of real Christianity the poor,
ignorant hatf savasrea knew almost
nothing. The example set them by the
priesthood was the worst they could
have hud. Priests who professed celib
acy openly lnul children who bore their
names. Their mother) were even proud
of having children by the padres. Many
of-the Dadrea were the owners of the
cock pits, for cock-fighting is the great
irport over there, and tho makers of
the bookc of tho bets. The charges
they made for thtir services were pre
posterous and. T incurred the enmity of
, the priest In one vlllegc by marrying
the natives while I was there, without
; charging them and so depriving him of
I the enormous fees which would have

"But 1 cancoi, go any further with-
out expressing my appreciation of the
work that is being done by Ari-hblshop
Hardy, who Is doing much to eradicate
all these abusvs.
"Things In a religious way are very
fiopeful Indeed. There are 3300 school
teachers there now, of which 1000 are
Americans. And no woman teacher
has ever been molested by a native

' SHOULD BE IN POLITICS.
H Rev. Richelson's Third Address to
H "Rev. John Richelson, pastor of the
H, Westminster Presbyterian church, last
H night delivered tho third in his Merles of
H I sennonw on "The Worklngman'a Prob-
V i lems and Christianity," In which he
H j recommended political action as 'thr?
H ( second instrument for tho protection of
H j 'labor nnd the forcing forward of better
H . Industrial conditions.
H I "There is," he said, "a political a-
fl 1 1 1 pect to labor problem. In making ln-
PPH dustrial conditions a political Itwue. lu-
PPpfl I terest in industrial problems 1h m-
PPH larged. The scope of labor unions must,

PPH j labor unions or unions; of any kind.

PPpfl professional men, mon In small bide-"
PPpH pendent business .ventures, theao-'aro,
really outside of the sphere of labor
unions1, and yet would benefit equally
with union men under a moro Just in
dustrial system. The political aspect
of tho labor problem, therefore, appeals
to even a greater class than tho union
"The advantages of our Institution
seem to bo a providential preparation
for tho ushering In of a better day. God
moves In history. No history la wasted.
History repeats Itself In an ascending
spiral. All things move forward toward
a grand consummation."
He traced tho means by which the
world had been prepared for the rapid
dissemination of Christian teachings
"Pure Democracy has not yet come
because tho untrammelled assertion of
political franchises can not be exer
cised by people who are dependent on
an aristocracy for their bread. Holding
a club over a man in a ballot box Is
not a more compulsive way of making
a man vote a certain way. than Is the
threat of losing 'employment. Democ
racy must realize industrial equity or
the idea of popular government has
come Into tho world for a delusion and
"Tho present Industrial system stands
indicted. It makes the rich ever
richer, an1 keeps the poor man poor.
Of this system It can be said: To him
that hath It shall be given and from
him that hath not, shall be taken even
that which he hath." The indictment is
against the system, not against those
who have profiled by the system. It
Ir Imperative upor us who hope for a
better day for mankind lo keep this
truth !n mind. We accuse a system
not a class of men. Labor does not
want a man with the red flag. If any
one of us were to fall heir to $5,000,000
tonight the chances are ninety-nine out
of 100 lhat he would experience a groat
change of opinion on Industrial ques-'
Hons before many days.
"The service of capital has bpen to
organize and direct labor.- But the re
ward is out of all proportion to the
pcrvlee. It has planned industry, but'
It has enslaved the wealth producers.
"This statement will be objected to
by claiming that service Is voluntary.
That the rich have no power to make
anyone work In tact, thnt they only
had mercy on those who begged to be
"Yet, the rich could well afford to sit
back and be begged, for they knew
that want compelled the poor to come
to them. They knew the iron hand
would force them to their knees. There
was no real freedom about U. The
sportsman who had hooked his fish can
countenledly let him play or sulk; he
has him anyway. He must come, his
way at last.
"Slavery Is the compulsion of the
body of one to another. The compul
sion of hunger Is as strong as tho
compulsion of the lash. The difference
between chattel and Industrial slavery
Is that In the llrst case tho master
had to go to trouble and expense to
keep the slave from escaping, while
In this latter case It Is more convenient
to the slave-owner because the slave
Is grateful for the opportunity to be a
"Bui. it Mil be -a!d. the wage-earner
receives wages, the slave received
nothing. Difference only of words und
in appearance. Slaves received sub
slstance the great class of wage-earners
receive only the same.
"The essence of slavery is the being
deprived of a fair proportion 'of pro
duction created. But the crowning
argument for the present system has
always been that a man can rise out
of It to a higher station. This is the
pitiable hope held out to a wage-earner.
If he be exceptionally able and In
dustrious he may rise to be himself a
lord and a toastmaster over his less
fortunate brethren. Thus is treason to
"Many laud their particular party,
but when a man confesses to belong
to any party whose chief aim 'Is Indus
trial betterment he Is laughed at, or
thought he were a fool, or a crook; If.
indeed, he be not regarded as a knave,
and a. would-be criminal. It Is time
that the nobility and seriousness of the
political aspect of labor's problems be
Besides the fault Is with the sys
tem, not with the individual. The men
who have profited by the system are
not the greatest of knaves by any
means, most of those who have not
profited by the system would be willing
to profit by it If they had the chance!
It is a good thing that the majority are
not prollted by this system for 1C they
were there would Indeed be little hope
of Justice- for the oppressed minority.
But fdnca the vast majority are suf
ferers by the present Iniquitous In
dustrial sys-tem there may' well be hope
that a day not very far away will see
tjic death of this unjust state of af
fairs! "The ballot is given to us. If there
is any Inheritance from the pa.s-t, or
any shaping of history for the future,
the less-on brought lo us today is that
the coming contest must be written on
ballots and not In blood.
"Those who are to be benefitted by a
change In Industrial conditions must
stand firmly and unrelentingly for the
purity of the ballot."

TURNED DOWN A HUNDRED
Doctor Refused to Pull Off Phony
The attempted suicide of Georgo
Cnlton In this city yesterday brought
to the mind of a State street business
man a somewhat similar episode which
occurred a few weeks ago, In which
th precautions against fatal results
were so carefully looked after lhat the
only results which did obtain were in
the form of a vigorous curtain lecture

According to the business man's
story, a pretty well known mining man
of Wyoming went into the ofllce of the
prominent physician and made to him
a very remarkable proposition.
"I want to perpetrate a fake suicide."
said the Wyoming man frankly- 'I
want you to give me a bottle labeled
'Poison.' but containing something
comparatively harmless. I will go to
my room and take It, after making due
arrangements to have you sent for.
Then you must come over with your
stomach pump, and after going
through the regulation performance in,

The prominent physician turned the
Wyoming man down cold.- and there
was no harrowing story of attempted
suicide to grace the columns of the
Salt Lake newspapers the following
morning. But the Doctor's better half
happened lo be in an adjoining room
to the one in which were the physician
and the mining man at the time the
strange proposal was made the two
looms were divided by only a low par
tition, and the wife heard every word.
She was more mercemary and had less
regard for professional ethics than her
husband. The conversation she was
compelled . to overhear Interested her
from the first, but when the attractive
financial p.rrt of the proposition was
mentioned visions of new gowns and
hats and 'possibly an automobile,
caused her to fairly dance with joy.
Then when her husband turned the
man away her disappointment was cor
"What did you mean by refusing
such an offer as that?" she asked in
harrowing tones the moment the
would-be patient had gone. You are
an idiot, 1 a blockhead. No one would
ever have known that it wasn't a real
attempt at suicide You have deliber
ately thrown away a hundred dollars

AMERICAN FORK. July 17. -Tho cam
paign drawing near is stimulating the
peoplo of American Fork to an Interest
which, at this particular seaHon. Is very
uncommon. At present the Republican
party lenders arc tho most active, owing
to the confidence of an overwhelming vic
tory at tho coming election Of the can
didates that the Republican party Is con
sidtj.ig. John C. Cutler seems to have
tlie preference here by a lanze majority
of intluentlal party leaders. Mr. Cutler is
well known at American Fork, he being
one of tho directors of the Utah County
Light and Power company. American
Fork Is a strong Republican town, the
party having held sway litre since the
municipal organization, with the excep
tion of last year, which was lost to the
Democrats by a split on the nominees.
The nominating of President Roosevelt
to succeed himself met With tho satisfac
tion of all our prominent Republicans to
such an extent thnt they have gone Into
the fundamental part of the oampaign
with a -zeal that will al hutst net for

If it were not for tho fact that Gov.

lime past, he would without doubt meet
with succcmh In this town and county.

"There can only be victory for tlie

their cause is just. Japan has G50.000
troops and can send, I ihink, r00,000 to
the front. The Japanese harbors are
very well fortified and the mountains
make It very difficult for an enemy to

Russians make always rong reports
about Japanese losses, to make powers
