THE GENTLEMeN MISS THE POINT.
We noted at some length yes
terday the statement of the chair
man nnd the secretary of the Smoot
committee, in their chartered Epacc
In the Deseret News. It was easy
to show that tho writer of that state
ment had been at some pains to miss
the truth in his affirmative statements.
Today we will show that In his nega
tions his denials he has beon equally
First, therefore, there is the denial of
church Influence In politics. How, then,
did It happen that Apostle Reed Smoot,
working through the church channels,
using the church organization and ofil
clals, and the church organ, was able
to pick up a man unknown to the poli
tics or the public life of this St,ate, and
make him the Republican nominee for
Governor? How was It that he was
able to cause delegates, nfter a private
conference with him, to abandon their
own choice for a candidate, and adopt
It Is thoroughly understood that a
high ofilclal of the church, as Apostle
Smoot is, will not be permitted to en
gage In politics unless by the consent of
his fellow high church officials. This
rule was thoroughly established in the
Thatcher case, and was afterward spe
cifically laid down In a special utter
ance by President Snow. It follows,
then, that Apostle Smoot, In engaging
in the political work which he unques
tionably Is engaged in, Is sustained In
doing so by his quorum, the Twelve
Apostles. But how can the Twelve
Apostles sustain a work that Is not a
church work? How Is It possible to
deny that it is a church Work when the
Twelve sustain it?
The result of this church sustaining
has been grievously felt from time to
time in this State.
The Democracy felt the church hand
heavy upon It In Its .campaign in 1S95,
and reconvened its State convention to
The State was put to shame sand con
tempt In the eyes of the whole country
by the determination of the church to
send Brigham H. Roberts to Congress.
The State was plunged Into turmoil
and distress by the church when It re
solved to carry out President Snow's
promise, ratified by President Smith, to
send Apostle Reed Smoot to the U. S.
Senate. This was done in spite of
warnings on every hand of what would
be the effecf.
President Roosevelt, kindly yet em
phatically, sent warning that the elec
tion' of an apostle to tho Senate would
work great harm to the State: would
be very unwise; would certainly lead
to contentions, and strife, and bitter
ness, and would unquestionably be a
misfortune to those who are interested
In all that goes to make Utah great.
And he concluded: "I desire you to
place mo on record as kindly, but firm
ly, advising against the election of any
apostle to a United States Senator-ship."
The harm has come; the unwisdom
has been made clear; tho great harm
predicted has come upon the State; tho
,strlfe, the bitterness, have come. Un
doubtedly it is a misfortune, as the
President said, to those who arc inter
ested in all that goes to make Utah
And yet, this puerile address has the
gall to luy the evils that have come as
predicted, by reason of Apostle Smoot's
election, and have arisen as the direct
and Inevitable result of It, upon the
shoulders of those who now organize
the American party.
The evils, the troubles came long be
fore this. Was it the new party that
caused the wave of hot indlgnaiion to
spread over the country from sea to
sea, on the publication of President Jo
seph F. Smith's awful testimony before
the Smoot investigation committee in
Was It the new party, which caused
a startled shock of amazement and dis
gust to roll ov6r the land on the direct
admislon, in the very words, by Apos
tle Lyman, President of the Twelve
Apostles, that he was living, and In
tended to continue living, in defiance of
the laws of God and man?
Was It the new party that 'brought
upon us the contumely at Portland,
which lost us the headquarters of the
Io it the new party that caused the
bitter feeling in the country at large
against Utah, that is spoken of by peo
ple who return from their summer va
cations? All these things occurred and devel
oped long boforo the new party was
organized. What childish folly It Is,
then, for the writer of that address,
what scandalous falsehood it is in him,
to attempt to hold the new party re
sponsible for a break of the good feel
ing and friendly relations that existed
before it was formed!
The plain truth is that the new party
merely represents tho outbreak of the
slumbering volcano which has been
smoldering here; the outburst of in
dignation could no longer be restrained.
Every one saw that tho church rule was
more nnd more being established in all
directions, and llmt the price of sub
mission was an Inevitable and abject
olaverjvcompleto prostitution of Ameri
can sentiment, a thorough sapping of
Rut It Is blandly pleaded that tho
Constitution forbids such churchly In
terference, and therefore It Is Impos
sible. That plea would also deny all
crime because there arc statutes that
forbid it; would proclaim the world to
be the abode of heavenly purity because
the laws and Institutions of mankind
forbid Impurity and denounce flagrant
No one denies tho Constitutional pro
vision; every one known that It Is tram
pled upon, utterly disregarded. Every
one knows, too, that there Is no legis
lation to enforce that provision; and
that If there were, It would be as diffi
cult to prove as polygamlst marriages
formerly were, although every one
knew that thoy were being performed,
Just as they know now, In oplte of all
denials, that the church is in political
control, and that It Is dominating the
public schools, and hopes soon to com
pletely subvert them to Its uses and
THE DUCHESNE WATER SUPPLY.
.It will be a matter of much congratu
lation to the people dependent upon the
Utah Lake water supply, to hear, us the
talk of the Government surveying in
vestigation is, that the Duchesne river
head waters have such an abundant
Of course, no official report Is made,
nor can such report be foreshadowed;
but the fact that Professor Swendscn
says the water supply of the Duqhosnc
country is the grandest ho has ever focn,
is In the highest degree satisfactory and
Such a supply as that is precisely
what Is wanted, to relnforco the Irriga
tion facilities of all the Utah Lako sys
tem. The water has been gradually
failing, on account of the Increased de
mands made upon It. Consequentlj', to
have tho assurance that Professor
SwendBen gives Is precisely what was
The Investigation, made at this sea
son of the year, when water flow
everywhere is at Its minimum, gives
especially encouraging hopefulness; for
If the supply Is now so great, It will bo
even moro abundant in the flood sea
son of the spring.
So that we have every reason to feel
encouraged on this preliminary talk
from Professor Swendscn, who is In
charge of tho Investigation made.
Tho next step will be to ascertain bow
much of this water can bo brought over
to this watershed, and at what cost.
As to that,Nwhlle we have no data, we
surely are Justified in indulging In a
lively and fervent hope.
THE RAISE ON THE COAL PRICE.
Last year the price of coal was
raised to the consumers in this city, on
the plea that there was a strike In the
coal mines, a scarcity of output, and
a difficulty and expense far beyond
that ordinarily required, attending the
production. But the Commercial club
took prompt action, Investigated the
subject, ("pund that there was not suffi
cient reason for the increase, and
had the price put back to tho old
rate. This year, without any strike,
without any scarcity, without any
known or statel reason, the price Is
again raised, and It Is said that the
Commercial club Is loth to take the
matter up because the local dealers are
the ones who profit by the raise this
year, whereas lost year It was the rail
roads. Is the club, then, a foe to the
railroads? If not, why resent a raise
for them, and then acquiesce In a raise
by the dealers? It will be Impossible for
the club to maintain a position like
that. Its business Is not to oppose any
one business interest of the city and
favor another. It can act only on gen
eral and proper lines, alike fair and
just to all, the Interests of the people of
the city being In all cases the guiding
It makes no difference to the pub
lic whether an unjust raise In coal Is
forced by the railroads or the dealers;
the oppression Is tho same In either
cose; and to have the Commercial club
fight the Increase In the one case nnd
acquiesce In it in the other, is not what
the people had the right to expect
Agriculture in Alaska is coming to
the front, according to the usual result
that crop-raising naturally succeeds
gold-mining. We have a copy of the
Yukon World, published at Dawson,
which tells of an agricultural fair they
have had there. At this fair premiums
were awarded for oats, hay. two varie
ties of potatoes, two of turnips, one
each on mangold wurtzel and on
beets, one on kale, five on cabbages, ,
one on cauliflower, one on celery, three
on carrots, two on cucumbers, three on
onions, two on parsnips, one on peppers,
three on radlohes, two on tomatoes, and
one on mushrooms. The conditions
were that the exhibits should have
been grown and matured In tho open
air. It is a very, good list for Dawson,
and without doubt the agricultural
products will materially Increase as the
years give experience and acclimated
seeds. Alaska, as predicted by Presi
dent Roosevelt, and. as foreshadowed by
tho reports of the exports of the United
States Department of Agriculture, Is
bound to become heavily populated, and
a rich region, both in all forms of min
eral yield, and in plentiful agricultural
production. The like latitudes In Eu
rope contain thriving, prosperous com
monwealths, and Alaska has greater
natural resources than any regions in
like latitude in Europe. The main por
tions of Norway nnd Sweden, and the
whole of Finland, arc north of the
parallel of the coast range of Alaska.
CHAIRMAN SPRY VS. CHAIRMAN SPRY.
Chairman Spry, in his vehement de
nials of church Influence In politics,
must not forget his own declarations.
He must not forget that on the same
night that he went to Senator Kearns
and to Mr. Llppman for help, he said
what meant that ho didn't need any
such help that for every Gentllo Re
publican who refused to vote for Cutler
they would get two Mormon Democrats
to vote for him.
He said this, well knowing that the
only possible means of effecting such
result was through direct church control
of the voter.
Why will Mormon Democrats refuse
to vote for Moyle, n brother Mor
mon and Democrat, and vote for Cutler,
a brother Mormon and a Republican?
What Is the reason why they will do
Surely it is not on political grounds;
for there Is no political causo which
would account for such a change.
Neither Is there any personal reason
lo account for It.
Is there a church cause?
Plainly, there Is, Mr. Cutler io the
candidate of Apostlo Smoot; and Apostlo
Smoot Is sustained by his quorum, the
Twelve Apostles, with whom ho Is in
harmony In his political work.-
It is clear, then, that hero la a rea
son, powerful enough to call for the
change which Chairman Spry has do-'
clared. It is evident that Democratic
Mormons would be flying in the face
of apostolic counsel and desire unless
they vote for Cutler.
It is plain that Chairman Spry is In
with this programme to coerce the Mor
mon Democratic voters by apostolic
"counsel."' Ho knows, ns all of us
know, that such counsel Is absolutely
controlling upon all of the faithful.
He has proclaimed what the outcome
will be, and ho is no doubt right.
But then, what becomes of his denial
of church domination in politics?
