THE 0LD -BIGOTRY REVIVED.
It was doubtle&j a. surprise to many
of the conservative business men of this
city, to those who have not felt It their
duty to afTl late with tho American par-,
ty here, to read tho fanatical utterances
of President Joseph F. Smith of tho
Mormon church, In his address to tho
quarterly conference of the SU George
In this address, President Smith threw
off all disguise, and gave full play to
his real sentiments. His words show
that .he is still, In his mind, dwelling
among the bitter conflicts of the past;
that to him a Gentile is an enemy whose
presence in Utah Is resented, and who
must be got rid of whenever this Is pos
sible. Tho Saints must not deal with
him, nor give him a foothold here, nor
aid them In any way. Here are his
words, as reported in the St George Ad
vocate, a paper wholly friendly to Presi
"The Gentiles are coming among us
to buy our homes and land. Wo
should not soil to thorn nor aid them,
as they are tho enemies of tho King
dom of God. Said ho had never
sought to be vast land owner, but
had never sold an inch of ground to
an enemy of God's work."
' Now, if that had been spoken on the
curbstone, by some Irresponsible fa
natic or bigot, nothing wouljl have been
thought ot It save that a weak mind
had gone badly astray through mistaken
But it was gravely delivered by the.
head of the Mormon church, In hlE ofll
clal capacity, to a regular assemblage
of his flock, who all sustain him as
prophet, seer, and revelator, and head
of the church in all tho world; the man
who Is fully acknowledged by them as
authorized to speak to all the faithful in
the name of God, and whose words of
counsel are In fact to them words of
The. utterance of this reactionary and
vicious counsel; this parade of godly
intolerance, saintly hate, and pious viru
lence against his neighbor, this unpatri
otic antipathy against American citi
zens who have every whit as much right
here as he has, probably means a recur
rence to the old "Mormon spirit of exclu
slveness; a revival of -the old cry that
Utah is'the Zlon of the. Lord.-the-inheritance
of his saints, and that Gentiles are
to be boycotted.
The text of scripture which he read In
support of his vicious counsel uphold the
same view; it deals with the establish
ment of a zfon. which the Mormons are
supposed to have done In fulfillment of
thl9 prophecy; a way of holiness, which
the unclean shall not pass over, the
Sainta being the clean and the Gentiles
So that the Gentiles may now know
what to expect. They can see, at least,
what Is in President Smith's mind.
But Is that really anything different
from what they had a right to expect
from the tendencles-of the times?-
WHat Gentile in business gets Mor
mon patronage .that can bo withheld
What form of business Is the Mormon
church not in, and what does it not
reach out for? And when the Mormon
church, lias an Interest in any business,
corporation, franchise or property, It Is
In control of It, no matter how small Its
Interest actually Is; for the church is
intolerant, grasping, domineering, as
sertive, and requires all other interests
to give way to Its own.
.The church Is In control vof vast In
terests here, and as fast as, possible Is
making its Interests Into monopolies,
which not only exclude all present com
petition, but which arc designed to shut
out all opposition or competition for all
lime, xnis mea. was carneu out in
President Smith's address at St. George,
when he counseled the people to make
for permanence In what they do. That
Is what he is doing here.
The Co-op. storo Is designed not only
for permanence, but for exclusion of all
competition. The street railway and
lighting company is another Instance,'
which is not only designed for perma
nence, but to shut out all rivals, not
only In the city, but for suburban lines
This consolidation of church business
activities Is going on all the while. Tho
design to make the church as dominant
in business as it is now ln religion and
politics, Is unmistakably plain.
m When the church programme as to
this, and as to keeping out .Gentiles by
refusing to sell land to them, to aid
them, and by abuse and contumely,
calling them enemies, reading- passages
of Scripture which are cpnstrued to
call them unclean, exercising a boycott
against them, and crowding them out
of the country where possible, 1b in full
operation, and completely avowed," It
will be of Interest to see what tho Gen
tile business men will say about it.
It Is very likely that President Smith
may attempt to mitigate the vlclous
ness of his addrcsB at St. George, by
endeavoring to localize it. But that he
put it squarely that the Gentiles are
enemies, and used his own case, holding
himself up as an example tho Saints
should follow, In never having, sold any
land to the enemy, cannot bo denied; yet
it is worth something to put him on his
denials and excuses, especially when the
denial Is a practical admission of what
Is reported that he Bald, the chief differ
ence being that he denies the use of the
word "Gentile," but confestes to tho
"enemies," a word which really means
the same thing In his vocabulary.
Besides, the Gentiles are not "coming
among usw at St. George; nor has his
boast of never selling any land to the
"enemies of the Kingdom of God" the
slightest relevance there. His "counsel"
was undoubtedly meant for general ap
We have no doubt whatever of tho
substantial accuracy of the report made
by the St. George Advocate, a paper
friendly to' tho president and anxious
only to report him faithfully. And that
report throws a lldod of light on the
situation, which should enable every
American to sec his duty and to do it.
Alllanco with tho American party may
soon become not a question of choice,
but of necessity, for self-preservation.
A DENIAL THAT DOESN'T DENY.
Willi reference to the report made by
the St. Georgo Advocate of the remarks
made by President Joseph F. Smith to
the Mormon conference at St. George
on September 17th, tho Deserct News
had the following statement Inst night
from President Smith:
While on my recent visit In the south
I learned that In consequence of hard
times many of the people in southern
Utah were moving away. At tho confer
ence held at St. Georgo I advised them to
remain, and encouraged them with tho
hope that railroad facilities would aoon
reach them and open markets for their
produce. I nevor said anything at all
about 'Gentiles' or dealing with thorn. I
did advlso them not to sell out their
homes and lands to their enemies. Prop
erty sold some years ago by our pooplo
has been repurchased. Our best policy
Is to be pormanent settlers, and not
roamors from placo to place. That Is. tho
whole eubstunco of my remarks on this
subject. JOSEPH F. SMITH.
Salt Lako City. Utah, Oct. G, 1WI.
The report by the Mormon paper of
President Smith's remarks are also
given on this page. The date of the card
quoted should have been the 3rd instead
of the Gth.
It will be noted that this purported
denial refers primarily to tho use of the
word "Gentile," but It admits the use
of "enemies." But as there are practi
cally no Gentiles In St. George, the at
tempt to escape through that loophole
will not serve. And besides, the term
"Gentile" and "enemy" have the same
meaning with Mormon theologists, so
that the denial is not important. But
why a Mormon paper, a friendly paper,
should report him as using a term that
he did not use, we are at a loss to un
derstand. We don't believe that It
Again, he attempts to claim that the
advice was merely local. But that won't
do for there are no "enemies of God's
work" down there. And he has
never been tempted with an offer for
any of his ,land down there, so that in
that connection his bigoted boast has
no meaning whatever. And he express
ly said, "The Gentiles are coming
among us to buy our homes and lands."
That Is something which applies to Salt
Lake and other regions hereabout, and
not to St. George, where the state
ment would not be true.
It will be In vain that President
Smith, or his friends for him, will at
tempt to break the force of the address
as reported: for It was reported by his
friends, printed In a friendly paper, and
though It Is more than a fortnight
since he made1 the address, there was
not a wcrd to Indicate that It wasn't
an acceptable report, until The Tribune
reproduced it from the Advocate's col
umns. The News, with Its usual mendacity,
undertakes to make it appear that this
report was something of The Tribune's;
that It was "a Tribune sensation." Of
course, the News Is well aware of the
falsity of all that. It knows well that
the report was. none of ours; that we
took it from the St. George paper,
which Is altogether friendly to Presi
dent Smith, and would not In the
slightest degree misrepresent him. It
no doubt saw the same report In the
Advocate and did pot In any way ques
tion Its accuracy. But It Is tho News's
usual method to meet the truth with
lies; only In thlB case the false ascrip
tion of this matter to The Tribune Is
unusually bold, Indecent and easy to
THE HONOR AMONG ST. LOUIS THIEVES.
The disclosures mado by Charles F.
Kellj, speaker of the House of Dele
gates of the Sf. Louis city administra
tion, are startling enough. But there
Is the suspicion of tho guiding hand In
theni. The boodllng bo shamelessly
confessed Is merely a detailed ampli
fication of what was already known.
But there Is an element In the story
Mr. Kelly tells which Is grimly humor
ous. He declares that when the Dele
gates' mot to determine how much they
would demand for their votes, they
would send out the one considered most
honest among them, to get the money;
,'that they were seldom deceived about
the hopesty of the one so selected, as
with rare exceptions ho returned faith
fully with the coin and distributed cor
rectly among the distinguished gentle
men who were entitled to receive It.
"There was a high sense of honor
among us," goes on Mr. Kelly, "and we
were seldom deceived. We almost al
ways got the money due us," or words
to that effect.
The grotesqueness of this view, the
unconscious parody on decency and
honesty which he emits In this sort of
talk, would be as delicious in fiction as
It Is scandalous In actual life. The Idea
of calling the division of boodle hon-
csty, and of associating "a high sense
of honor" with the division of thieves'
swag Is as ridiculous a travesty on the J
true meaning of words a3 could be con- j
celved. Mr. Kelly's "mind has evidently
been thoroughly perverted; ho Is a fit
subject for the study of the alienist,
or the biological expert on the deterlor- '
at Ion of the human- rac, J

BUILDING MATERIAL OF THE FUTURE.
From tho Now York World.
United States Consul Kohl reports
from Stettin that the unfortunate ex
periences of the German cement manu
facturers ln 1902-03 have stimulated
the Introduction of their product Into
hitherto unusual places. It is now em
ployed In making artificial stono for
buildings even of monumental size, and
for foundations, sewers, bridges and
pillars where brick or stone would for
merly have been necessary.
A cement canal conveyed on cement
trestles and carrying an "artificial
river" Is a fairly familiar sight ln
Switzerland, where the material is
found useful in the vast projects of
water-power control which are trans
forming the country. For such coarse
work cement bars laid crosswise upon
cement uprights ln Imitation of beam
construction are found strong and durable.
