Special to The Tribune.
BOISE, Sept. 27. Perhaps ono of the
moot Interesting speechea of the present
campaign In Idaho Is made by "William
Hyde Stalkor, who Is at presont cam
paigning Jn north Idaho with Senator
Dubois. Mr. Stalker Is a Republican,
but he Is making speeches for the
Democratic party squaroly on the Mor
mon Issue, Stranger, perhaps, that to
find this brilliant young Republican
speaking for the cause of his party's op
ppnents, Is the fact thathe Is a Mor
mon, though an apostate, and the child
of polygamous parents. His statements
regarding Mormon interference In poli
tics, therefore, carry great weight, and
; as he is listened to very attentively
: everywhere his utterances are looked
upon by the Democratic managers aa
being productive of much good for their
campaign, Mr. Stalker, In his 'speech,
Stalker a Republican.
Hj I am a Ropubiican My father and
grandfather were; Republicans I do not
l Belong to the Republican party If the
term Implies ownership. But, first of
all, and above all, I am a citizen of tho
United States of America. I was born
In Idaho; the eldest son of Alexandor
Stalker, by Ills second wife, Emily.
1 Idaho was a Territory whon I was
born young and undeveloped. I am
proud of my home State. Thero Is hard
)y a stream, a mountain, or even a flow-
t cr that I have not looked upon with
Hf You will pardon me for referring to
myself frequently, as what I have to
eay Is retrospective in the main, and
what I shall relate comos largely within
my own experience and knowledge.
Some of you will wonder why I, a Rc
publican am stumping the State In the
Interest, of tbo Democratic party 1 will
explain: When 1 was but 11 years old,
i Senator Dubois was United States Mar
S shal for Idaho, and my half-brother was
J deputy. They were sondlng many of tho
1 saints to tho penitentiary for unlawful
cohabitation, it was the Republican
1 party In those days that was trying to
t wash away the stain from the good
j namfc of the Stale of Idaho. All Mor
l mons were Democrats In those days.
L Things .have changed since. Tho Ropub
Mean party in Idaho Is progressive I
1 guess I am not, for I stand today where
tho Republican party stood in the early
More Elusive Than Phantoms.
Politics, they say, makes strange bed
fellows, or may bo tho millenlum Is hero,
for the lion and the Iamb He down to
gather. Some of tho best men In tho Re
publican party urged that tho nntl-polyg-amy
clause bo Inserted In tho Republican
platform, but tho wise men, tho ruling
faction, decreed otherwise, and now,
we. who would purge the State of this
i rcllo of barbarism, are called chafers of
pliantoms. That man who applied that
term to us spoke better than ho knew,
for history bears out tho statemont that
he who has to deal with tho Mormon
question is chasing something even moro
elusive than phantoms.
I shall revlow, as brlofly as I can, the
history of tho cose, and I want to say
right here, that this plank is one boforo
which all others pale Into Insignificance.
It Is the only question before the people
of the State of Idaho today. The others
may be put off to another time. If neces
wrj', but this one commands the alten
tlon of all cood mon and women in tho
! State of Idaho now.
Polygamy Practiced in Idaho.
I will attempt to show, first, that polyg
amv is practiced In the State of Idaho,
and. second, that tho church docs Inter
fore in xkdltlcal and all temporal af
fairs. I shall attempt to show that.polyg
V ; amy is the essential clement of tho Mor
mon church, and that political and in
dlvjdual liberty, on tho part of the Mor
l mon people, is an "Iridescent dream." I
l tell 70ii, my dear friends, that a second
generation Mormon has no Initiative; ho
7 has as much independence of thought or
i action as the proverbial Jack-rabbit. His
Ideas arc ready-made for him, and his
, rule of notion for tho week Is made for
l him on Sunday His church is his life
i it is supreme in all matters, as Is his
i conduct in this life and in tho world to
come. He is not a good Mormon if ho
recognizes any power higher than that
of his church. He Is taught that his
church Is supremo Jn all " things; that
hla Government is a tyrant, and ho Is
taught to despise it as his persecutor
and the persecutor of God's chosen poo
pip Ho is taught that Joseph Smith was
a prcphet of Gbd; that his utterance's
were God inspired.

In the fnco, that Is an Insult to our man

Idaho, and we citizens owe It to tho Stato
that we inakp It a fit place for the homes
of tho best pebplo of America. If we do
not do this, tho Stato will suffer finan

To show you that thb church Interferes
In political and all other temporal af
fairs among Its people I wont to coll your
attention to a caso that came under my
own observation. My father was a mem
ber of tho church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day
Saints. He came to Utah as early
as l&VT. He was a faithful member and In
good stnndlng He moved to southeastern
Idaho In 1SG0 or thereabouts. That coun
try was a wilderness at that time, and
the peoplo who lived there suffered all
kinds or privations.
Cites Case of His Father.
As the country began to grow, my fa
ther and oldest brother engaged In the
hotel business. They were very poor, and
the Mormon store at Franklin, tho Zlon
Co-operative Mercantile Institution, would
hot extend them credit. Thero wero somo
Jews and other Gontlles In tho town of
Franklin who wero doing a general mer
chandise business. They credited my fa
ther and brother, and did all In their pow
er to help them along and Increase their
Suspended From Church.
My father was called before a commit
tee of the church to be disciplined for
trading with tho Gentiles without tho con
sent pf the church. My father explained
to them the circumstances, but they told
him that his only opportunity to escape his
just punishment was to ask forgiveness
of the church and refrain forever there
after from trading with these Gentiles.
His relations wtn theso pontile mer
chants were such that It was Impossible
for him to comply. He was suspended.
A llttlo after this the Independent party
aslted him to run for the State Legisla
ture: h,c did so, and Inasmuch ns he was
elected, and becauso the bishop of Frank
lin was a candidate for tho same position,
he was excommunicated.
Then began a series of persecutions. Tho
Stalker family was ostracized; they were
not allowed to associate with their neigh
bors, or rather their neighbors were not
allowed to associate with them, they were
boycotted In their business and all tho
pleasures of childhood wero denied to tho
ohlldren of Alexander Stalker,
William Fancher of tho samo place was
excommunicated because ho opened up a
llttlo store with stock to tho amount of
J WO or JWO. One John Cornish was excom
municated for trading With Fancher a
cowhide for a pair of shoos. There aro
many other Instances of thl.-j kind, but
this will suffice for our purpose.

I like tho Deseret News building and
the college grrounds and buildings. The
Mormons must be getting some light.
Perhaps you are unjust to them. Look
at Zlon's store; I went In there yes

good goods as one could expect thl3

was a pretty slghUto see all those girls

"Yes," continued Mrs. Ncwmnn,
"thero has been a great change for the
better. It Is very gratifying. Perhaps
the time will come when one from Utah
traveling In tho East will be ready to
admit that he haJis from this State.
But what has brought about this
change? Did the Mormons aspire to
bettor things? Would these Improve

been left In undisputed possession of:
"Most assuredly not The good peo

"I say, let the good work go on. The
State Is far from being perfect yet,
else, why al this agitation through
out the country? If that great un
paralleled evil, polygamy, has been
done away with (though I know that
it has not, or at least, that polygamous
cohabitation Is still quite general),
you have, It seems, one still more dis

that Is the exercise of priestly Influ

These are some of the remarks made
by Mrs. Newman in the course of a
long conversation, During her stay at
the Davis Deaconess Home on Third
South street for the past week sho

called upon by several of the city min
isters, by many women and quite a
number of politicians, and has ac
quired a fund of knowledge on the
present situation, both for use In tho
book she Is writing as a sort of handy
reference In the Smoot light before the
