For Vice-President: v
CHARLES W. FAIRBANKS.
1 K Brother Cutler should be olecl-
H cd, who would be Governor If Apostle
Smoot should ko to Japan?
Hu Even If a voter should vote the Amer
lean ticket when Intending to vote some
n other, he would make no mistake.
Is Nevada going to prove that it is
as progressive as indications suggest,
or is it going to give its vote to Parker?
It would not be so easy, however, to
convert Japanese, Apostlo Smoot would
find, as it was to convert Wells dclc
gates Chairman Spry Is pleased to hear that
there is a large number of Mormon
Democrats, as he will need many of
1 them later on for Cutler.
Brother Howell Is not alarmed by
the applause given Judge Powers down
South, as he knows that people do not
always vote as they clap.
But how can (Committeeman Pecry
expect to conduct a quiet Democratic
campaign, If there is to bo no money
J.o silence the demands of the work-
Mormon Democrats who come to con
forence can call at State Republican
1 headquarters if they are curious to
know what they arc to do on election
If you ask what Mormon In good
standing will help along the cause of
the American party by going on the
stump, we shall answer; Brother Cut
Icr Still, Apostle Smoot can see that In
Japan life would be more enjoyable In
one respect than In Utah, as there are
no troublesome independent Republl
Brother Cutler may not have a strong
sense of humor, but surely he must
laugh when he hears the claim made
that no Mormon Democrat can be com
pelled to vote for him,
Hj . Democratic leaders here find that
they are not In accord with their na
tional party organization on the great
financial question of the campaign, re-gar-ding
funds for Utah.
Who can say that Brother Smoot Is
selfish, when he Is. willing that others
should have anything in the political
or ecclesiastical or business line that
Hj doesn't strike his fancy.
Democratic orators greatly enjoy
talking without regard to results, or
they would not be going around mak
Ing speeches v.'hcn Chairman Spry has
deprived their party of all hope of suc
cess. The Democrats are to meet today at
the Salt Palace grounds, where they
will enjoy a barbecue and fill ihem
selves with the fat of the land, and dc
vise means whereby they can destroy It,
make the fat lean, and prevent any
body ever having such n good time
again. They will enjoy Republican
prosperity, while scheming to destroy it.
The News last night printed a curious
lot of absurd stories about the Mor
mons, putting the narratives in tho
1 mouths of tourists, as though they had
hpard somebody tell them. Of course,
the w'holu string Is of "yellow, the ycl
lowest. Eut the motive evidently Is to
quote these stories after a while as
things actually told, and to plead their
nonsensical character as a bar to be
lief in talcs that are actually true.
The church organ suggests almost
fl strongly enough to make It a charge,
Hj that the story of Vynooop of his being
hold up and boutton was "cooked up"
in Tho Tribune office. It was treated
by this office as any other piece of
news Is that Is got from the one sup
posed to know best about It. The
church organ, so far from attaching
HS any stigma in this matter, really duos
nothing but make confession of its own
TIMELY AND OF GREAT NEED.
Tho timeliness of the organization of
tho Ajnerlcan party Is manifest In tho
magnificent response making to it. The
people are coming to its support with
a cordiality that Is heart-oheerlng, and
In numbers beyond all expectation'.
From all ranks of tho people they
come; representatives of all shades of
opinion on other subjects are a unit
upon this: all agree on the need of
tho party to fight church aggression In
politics and in the schools, and In
their determination to mnko this a
fight to tho finish, t
A most gratifying feature of the
tlmo is the generous response to the
American idea from within tho ranks
of tho Mormons themselves. It was
expected that some would ally them
selves with this movement for politi
cal reform; but it was not expected
that so many would at once come out
An unexpected feature of those of
the Mormons who affiliate with this
righteous movement is tho zeal which
they display. Some, Indeed, aro tho
most radical, the most bitter of all,
against tho Mormon dominance In poli
tics, In business, and In the schools.
They spenk from a more perfect
knowledge of tho evils complained of
than the Gentiles can possibly do.
"Why," they say, "you fellows don't
know anything about It; you aro merely
on the outskirts. We see things from
the Inner circle, and know that what
hns been openly charged against the
-Vl 11 !. Unln.n I.. Il.nl. ....1a In nnllflor.
v-j i u i iwuuviia ill iiiwil 1UIU 111 iJUllkll.O,
business, and In the schools. Is not
only all true, but that the half has
not been told," Their denunciations
are both fervent and deep.
A young man who was horn and
roared In tho church said the other day
that when he said to his parents that
he behoved the charges wero true; that
the church leaders were active and
dominant In controlling the political
and public affairs of the State, they
wore , incredulous; "find us one In
stance of It," they said. And he quietly
added, "I didn't have- to look far to
That the evil Is one which cries aloud
for reform Is patent to all. The Mor
mon control of the. recent State con
ventions of both parties was bo plain
that there could be no mistake about
IL In the Democratic convention Its
especially bitter work was In the de
feat of Chief Justice Baskln for re
nomlnatlon. In the so-called Republican conven
tion, Apostle Smoot's ascendancy was
so complete and unchallenged, backed
us ue was oy me support ana har
mony of his quorum, that he was the
absolute dictator. It was a shameful
spectacle to be seen In this alleged free
country. This convention was not In
fact a party convention at all, much
less a Republican convention. It was
merely a reunion of Smootltes, with
all Idea of politics, In , the usual ac
ceptation of that term, eliminated. It
was all church and no state. And It
played the State a scurvy trick.
We had all been led to suppose that
this evil of church rule and blind sub
servience would cease on Statehood;
that while perhaps some of the older
persons, trained throughout their lives
to rely on the priesthood for direction
in every occasion of life, might still
be too weak to stand alone, their num
ber would decrease, and with the with
drawal of the claims of priestly rule in
politics the evil of church Interference
therein would die out.
But" to the amazement of some and
the disgust of all, the priesthood reaf
firmed Its right to rule in politics, as
shown by President Woodruff's direc
tion for the people to set aside their
Republicanism and Democracy and
unite as Latter-day Saints in the con
trol of their looal affairs. He counseled
that the apo3tles and high church lead
ers should no longer keep out of poli
tics, but that all should unite as
church members in their political af
fairs, locally. The reaching out of the
priesthood for political control becamo
aggressive, open, shameless, undcnled
by all save those who loved a He.
That they have followed this counsel
all too faithfully is evident in the
wretched history of the Stale, In the
wreckage of pledges made by tho
church leaders, in the utter repudiation
of a good faith which those leaders be
sought In anguish that the country
would receive aB genuine.
What a gruesome spectacle It Is, to
see the leaders of a church repudiating
their voluntary pledges, and going back
on their solemn oaths! How the coun
try revolts at the awful perjury, the
dreadful mockery of decency that aro
Involved In nil this shameful repudia
tion of pledge and sworn testimony!
Such absolute disregard for promises,
such scoffing disregard for solemn
pledges, was never seen before among
So far from the evil growing less, It
was growing greater. So far from dy
ing out, It was becoming more and more
alive. So far from the remains of It
being seen among weak men who wero
In the habit of relying on the priest
hood for counsel, we see the priesthood
active and zealous In the unamerican
work of pushing their control over the
political opinions and acts of tho peo
ple, and insolently demanding the sub
servience of all the church's adherents
Ing out, it was becoming more and more
to their political dictum In the shape
Verily. It was time to put In a protest
against this curse, this growing and
malignant evil. Surely, the people
could not suffer longer under this usur
pation, this invasion of their personal
and political rights, without organizing
to resist It. And the form of that re-
slstanco cryslallzed In the organiza
tion of the American party. To It every
genuine citizen should rally Irrespective
of religious faith or organization, with
out regard to raco or to birthplace,
and help to strike the blow which shall
Indeed make every citizen of Utah
The tlmo Is rlpo, tho need Is great:
let every patriot respond with voice and
with vote, and help on tho cause of liberty.
A PREPOSTEROUS DEMAND.
The Democratic party asks the trust
and confidence of the people this year:
why? It Is n plain case: the Democracy
Is trying to play the people for chumps.
Its only claim to popular confidence
and support Is entirely negative that
It has been wrong on every proposition
ever before the people.
It Is wrong on the tariff, and brought
the country to the verge of ruin through
Its Ignorant and reckless tampering
with tho tarff when It had control of
both branches of Congress, and had the
It was wholly wrong on the money
standard, as It confesses In Its aban
donment of sliver, its claim that the
.question Is settled, and the admission
of Its condidatc that the gold standard
Is irrevocably established.
It was wrong on the Philippine ques
tion, as is manifest in the loyalty and
content of the Filipinos under the pres
It was wofully worng In Its Chicago
platform that threatened tho invasion
of the courts by tho politicians if the
Judges didn't quit rendering unpopular
It was wrong when It opposed the .m
actment of the anti-trust laws, and
both contemptible and hypocritical
when It pretended that It wanted them
It has, In short, been wrong all the
time, and has confessed It as to some
points, whllo as to others it is in dis
agreement with itself, as when it de
clares on the ono hand that protection
Is robbery, and on the other that It
won't try to abate that robbery, end
couldn't If It wanted to, for the U. S.
Senate, being Republican, would block
Its efforts to that end.
And this medley of half-rcpnntont
Imbecility, baffied desire to smash
things, and Incongruous Joinder of mu
tually repulsive and distrustful selfish
ness, asks the people to trust It be
cause It Is untrustworthy by Its own
confession, give It power which It Is ut
terly unable beneficially to use, and
lot it shape the destinies of a nation it
does not understand, on lines which tho
Imbeciles cannot agree upon, among
We have from a valued friend at
York, Pennsylvania, the following note
of ringing congratulations on the estab
lishment of the American party In
Editor Trlbuno: Permit me to convey to
every loyal Amorlcan and every Christian
missionary in Utah- my hearty congratu
lations upon tho full answer of all my
prayers and appeals, by voice and pen,
these many years, In tho attitude and or
ganization of tho now movement against
tho Insidious foo of everything that con
stitutes Christian citizenship under our
boneflclent and beloved GovornmcnL
To this campaign of righteousness, and
civil and religious freedom for Utah I
pledge life, property and honor until "tho
right shall win as God Is God." Frater
J, A- LIvlngBton Smith.
The Rev. Mr. Smith Is well known In
Utah, having been for many years a
Presbyterian missionary, stationed at
Sprlngvllle. . While In Utah, he was
zealous 'In the service of his Master,
effective In his calling and stalwart as
an American citizen. The Tribune Is
delighted to hear from him, and to see
that his heart Is as true as of old, and
his voice as clear and ringing for the
truth and the right.
Chairman Taggart of the National
Democratic committee has been rele
gated to the rear with a vengeance. He
has been banlehed to Indiana, To bo
Dure the sentence Is somewhat miti
gated by the "soft-soaping" which ac
companies It. The Importance of In
diana In the campaign is pointed out,
and the possibility that the resutl of the
election may depend upon the vote of
that State la dwelt upon. But this is a
poor disguise, and Tom Taggart goea
home a broken man, practically dis
missed from the management of the
campaign. Judge Parker's frequent
vlaits to New York to consult with the
campaign managers of his party have
evidently been fruitful. He never
wanted Taggart to have charge, anyway.
Another big slump In the price of
wheat In the Chicago market yesterday.
This loss will fall wholly on the
"bull' operators, or at least should do
so; for the farmers had ample ndtlce to
sell while the price was up; It Was a
plain case that the boost was for specu
lative purposes only, and that the re
ports of a short crop, and damage by
rust and frost, were cooked-up fakes.
If the farmers did In fact sell while
the prlcewas up, as they had ample
chance to do, then thoy are to be con
gratulated; the loss& In the fall suffered
by the speculators are a cause of re
joicing rather than of grief.
Wo are yorry to see that Governor
Chatterton has seen occasion to find
fault and quarrel with Chief Hydro
grapher Newell of the arid land recla
mation service, lh Utah, we look upon
Mr. Newell an one of the most active,
zealous and efficient ofilccrs which the
Government has In any branch of lta
service. He ls thoroughly competent,
honest, and sralghtforward. Unques
tionably he hns tho very best Interests
of the Irrigation work at heart, and is
working to the very highest Interests of
the public. It lo Inevitable, no doubt,
that differences of opinion will arise In
tho prosecution of so stupendous a work
as this application of skill and money
to the solution of the Irrigation prob
lems, but those differences should bo
discussed calmly and deliberately, and
should In no case tend to mar the pro
gress and effectiveness of the public
service aimed at. . In Utah wo pin our
faith to Mr. NeWoll, and believe em
phatically that he is the right man in
the right place.
