I BIGOTRY FOE
I Of PROGRESS

I of Reform.
Narrow Man Backs Notions
H by Significant Movement
Intolerant Aro Dominated by the
Spirit of Thoso Who As
Taking na hla toxt tho -words of John
x., 31: "Tho Jews took up atonos again to
atono him." tho Rov. Bonjaraln Young, nt
tho Flrat M. E. church, last night,
preached on tho subject, "The Reign of
tho Bigot," Ho said, in part:
"A stone Is n striking argumont. Thoro
Hj La a kind of reserve power in a rock plla.
A heap of stones, with a few expert
throwers, constitutes a battory dangerous
Hj to any ndvocato. A reformer onco told
me how Insignificant ho felt when, In an
attempt to aolvo an ethical problem for
tho benefit of a mob, ho was struck full
on tho breast with an odorlforoua egg.
Any odvocato who can stand serenely
Hj amid a shower of brickbats, and so forth,
ought certainly to be tho champion of a
Bigot Still -With TJs.
"Every system must have a defense
Something Is said for over' vagary of tho
1 human mind. Logic Is used to support
j and to build up many a bad system. Tho
Muster had boon endeavoring to impress
H a group of peoplo with the fact that, in
H an important sense, ho was related to tho
H Fathor. His argument Is Incontrovertible.
H They cannot overcome his speech, so they
j call him hard names. They gnruih their
xeeth with rage They pick up stones to
stone him again. This was not tho first
timo that he had been threatened. Thoro
H was never such a reformer as Jesus. He
was a teacher of masterful power. His
j system was slmplo and Intelligible. Tho
elaborate mechanism of Judaism was
H endangered, Tho priests and scribes
would lose their gTlp upon tho masses If
1 the ideas of this teacher were to prevail,
j They aro Interested in tho perpetuation of
tho prevalent systom. They cannot re
H futc tho arguments of tho Nnzarone.
However, they arc ready to drlvo him out
by bruto force. Thoy will stono him. Thoy
j used tho arguments of bigotry. Tho
j strength of these Jqwg at the timo of
B Christ Illustrates tho reign of the bigot.
Bigotry and truth arc seen here In vlgor
1 ous conflict They were thus seen beforo
1 that time and have been seen in such rcln
j tlon to each othor often slnco. Tho reign
1 of tho bigot has not yet passed away.
1 "It is almost foolish to argue with a
narrow-minded man, A fanatic will al
Hl ways get tho best of you. He will appeal
1 to that which you will scorn. He will
profess an Interior light which you will
know nothing about. Ho will arrogate to
n himself superior powers. He will aggrn-
vate you by his assertions and anger you
1 by his illogical somersaults. Tho spirit
1 of theso men who took up stones to stone
1 the Christ has curbed tho world and lm
H peded progress.
Foe of Thought.
"Bigotry is the foo ojt thought. In the
earlier history of civilization. In very
1 many Instances tho men who dared to ox-
H press somo new truth wero driven into
v exile. It 1b n hard thing to break off
g habit This is tho testimony of all nature,
"Wo hate to turn out of tho road. This la
truo mentally. Certain mental habits
color thought fabric and often mar it To
put new Ideas into our brains Is like
dropping a piece of steel Into the smooth
running cogs of delicate machinery Wo
cry heresy becauso it hurts our thinking
Hl processes. Anaxagoras startled the early
j Greeks so 'they took up stones to stone
him.' Protagoras, the sophist, said some
strange things to these same people and
1 they did not like it They banished him
and then burned his writings in tho mar
kct place. Athens had no use for Socrn
tcs, so thoy put the hemlock to his Hps.
Occasionally you hear an lnfldel talk as
though religion wero tho father of all
suporstitlon and bigotry In the 'world.
Very likely ho will clto you to the book
of Joshua and mention Galileo. But ho
forgets that Arlstarchus taught In Samos
long ago a system of astronomy like tho
system of Copernicus, and that he was
tho great scientist of tho dav in Alcxan
dria, and ho was not a Christian, who
w Btamped tho theory as Impious. The
church, unfortunately, took her cuo Xrom
B this pseudo-science and was led Into
grievous error in tho Middlo Age3.
Wrongs Done in Name of Piety.
"In tho name of piety great wrongs
Hj have often been done. But tho spirit of
H narrowness seoms to crop up In different
places and to show Itself In varied
aspects. It would put shackles on
thought. It would expurgate tho best
from literature. It would burn libraries
and make tho world a hugo sopulchro.
It Is tho onomy of progress. It was truo
H or tho Incident from which the text la
taken. Blgotrj" blocked the progress of
reform in that day; It often does tho
j same today. "Whon ono said tho earth
waB not tho center of our system, bigotry
Mj Uoz up stones to stono lilm.' When
Newton advanced tho theory of gravlta-
Hl tlon. blgotrj' said Newton was an atheist
and.,a fool: tnat 1,0 would bettor attend
to nlB own business and not go prying Into
njy9torie which God has put about
tie. Tho work of tho bigot Is seen almost
evorywhere. Ho has burned precious
Hj manuscripts. Ho has crushed to powder
. J?n.C3t statuary because ho said it was
Irreligious. He has fought tho advanco of
H liberty, and once ho mado stables of tho
cathedrals of France. Ho has fathered
frequont revolution and sought to torror
Izo men into his way of thinking. He has
ever been tho opponent of truo reform
and been ready to back up his notion by
Blgnlflcant movements toward tho stone
H ipllo. Ho hnB been tho author of much
H ( porsecutlon.

H But this Is not helpful to progress, and Jt

Our Lord was abovo It. He gavo to tho
apostles tho loftiest Ideal. Paul was ln

j SECRET OF A HAPPY HOME.
One Beal Cause of All Trnhappiness
Rov. Overn of Our Savior's church
yesterday morning, discoursed on what
H constitutes a happj home. In hlu ln
H troductory rcmarla the pastor pointed
H ' out the many unhappy homes about ue.
to which the numerous divorce suite
testify, and asked the cauwe of all this
domestic unhnpplness; to which he re
plied that many cauiws might be given,
but that in reality there 1b but one
cauae. The one real cause of all un
happineus, he Raid, Ib uin. That lies a:
the bottom of all trouble, and unless
we learn to overcome cln we can never
be truly happy. There is but one ef
ficient remedy against Bin, and. that Is
the blood of Jesus ChrlBt; thcro la no
other remedy that will cure this trou
ble. Here are the three grand pillars
upon which a truly happy homo la built,
and there can be no happy home with
out them the mercy, blessing and
guidance of our Father in heaven.
Many think that happiness consists In
having much property or in being rich.
Others think that it consists in gaining
earthly honor und gloiy or In being
surrounded by the pleasures and luxu
ries of thltj life. But happiness does
not consist in those things. You can
not cure an aching heart by covering It
up with Jewels. You cannot take away
an evil conscience by diving Into, pleas
ure or by feeding upon luxuries. Peace
with God is found only in the forglve
neso of sins; so he who will be happy
In his heart and-In his home must learn
to pray to God for mercy for the sake
of Jesua Christ, who loved uy and gave
himself for uo.

Prisoner in Hole
for Refusing Water
Angered at Conviction, Frank Hay
mond Declines to Drink
Antipathy to water as a thlrBt euro
caused Frank Raymond, an Inmate of
tho county Jail,, to bo cast into the
Vblack hole" Saturday afternoon, and
so strong Is his dislike for the stuff
that he is still there. Raymond de
clares he will never touch the liquid,
but as he has six years to serve In tho
State prison it is quite probablo that
he will change his mind, Inasmuch as
no Intoxicants are served at the In
stitution on the hill.
Raymond beeame a total abstainer
Saturday afternoon, after being sen
tenced to serve six years in tho pen on
the charge of burglary. -When Jailer
Bell passed In the customary quart of
aqua pura, Raymond became very In
dignant nnd called the Jailer neveral
unkind names for offering him the
Btuff. Ho refused to touch tho water
and dashed the cup to the floor of his
"Don't t'lnk I'll take nono uv dat
stuff," exclaimed Raymond In disgust.
"Dat dope was made to wash In, and I
don't rust my pipes wld none uv It.
To punish him for being unruly the
turnkey placed him in a dungeon. Yes
terday morning when his breakfast was
passed in' Raymond let out a roar of
anger and dashed the food back
through the grating. He cursed tho
Jailer and declared hfe would die before
drinking any water. However, tho of
ficials at the county Jail are not antici

the prisoner will think better of his
rash vow after another day in tho dungeon.

"Our enemies would very much appre

of our young peoplo wero ashamed of
tho gospel of Jesus Christ; but through
my travels In this State, In tho dif
ferent parts whoro our peoplo aro, In com
ing In contact with the young people In
our meetings, I can testify to you that
It is far different from that, and that, In
stead of bolng ashamed of tho great work
and the cause thoy represent, they aro
proud of tho fact that they aro mombers.
of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter

Not Ashamed of Religion.
"I am not ashamed of the goBpel of

It Is the power of God unto salvation;
and I hopo that I nevor will llyo long

Is that wo havo lost confidence In ono

tho reason is that thoro havo beon a fow

Joseph Smith Memorial.
Before tho benediction was pronounced
President John R. Winder said:
"It will bo remombored that at tho last
conferenco a resolution was passed pro
viding for a memorial to Prophet Joseph
Smith. Tho plans havo been prepared and
nro now In tho hands of tho trustee and
tho work will soon bo commenced. Wo
expect to havo It completed for, dedica

"I wish to give notlco that wo will open
tho Temple Monday for baptism and on
Tuesday for ondowments. We do this to
try to accommodate aa far as posslblo tho
strangers who havo come from afar."
Nophl Pratt was the first speaker at the
afternoon overflow meeting In the Assem
bly Hall. Ills speech was an exhortation
to young men to spoak In the dlfforcnt or
ganizations at home when opportunity
should nrlso, In order to better lit them
selves for tho missionary field, whero they
would find it so difficult to spenk to audi
ences not In sympathy with them.
Ho was followed by Gorman Ellsworth,
who told of tho advance mado by tho
Mormons In street 6peaklng in Chicago.
"We havo chosen threo corners on which
to operato, and now the crowds gather
thcro with tho expectation of seeing and
"Wo cured a child there by faith a
child which had been a cripple from the
time It was an Infant, on account of hav

brutal, drunken father, and having Its log
dislocated. She camo to us. and was
mado to walk, through our faith.
After the Dowieites.
"Tho Dowleites bollcve vory much as wo
do; thoy believe In repentance, In baptism
for tho remission of sins. In the Word of
Wisdom, and there aro several other
points of likeness to our religion. We
havo had some converts who wero first
drawn to Jesus through them, and It will
only bo a few years beforo thoy will all
accept our gospel."
After an anthem Elder Rulon S. Wells
oddrcasod tho congregation, making qulto
a hit with his discussion of. the word
"devil." "Imagine the word devil writ
ten on this wall. Take from It tho 'd'
and we havo 'evil'; now take from thla
the letter 'e' and we have 'vile"; leavo oft
the 'v' and It Is '111, and, with an English
accent, tho next letter Is mado Into
Kimball Makes a Hit
Golden Kimball was no doubt tho speak
er of tho afternoon, a ripple of amuse
ment following nearly all of his remarks.
In reforence to the attacks on tho Mor
mons, he said: "Not long ago a tourist
who camo to Salt Lake stood in a bed of
ants and was severely bitten. He Immedi
ately began to swoar against tho Mor
mons. Perhaps he thought they were
Mormon ants!" At this the congregation
was much amused. "We have a great
deal of cheap notoriety, but it doesn't
make any difference to mo Thcro aren't
devils enough In hell to destroy this
church, and there aren't men enough on
earth to do It. I don't care how much
ovll thcro Is committed In tho church,
they can't destroy It
"I have some advlco to glvo to the
Cathoilc. Mothodlst and Presbyterian
churches, but I don't suppose they will
accept It, for they never havo In tho past.
Thoy should never receive an apostate
from tho Church of Latter-day Saints, for
If thoy do It will mean trouble. An apos
tate Mormon In another church will be an
agitator; ho will be restless; he will ques
tion where they get their authority, and
then they would bo a long time tolling
him." This touch pleased the congrega
tion. "He will never be any account to
them. Ho will not even bo satisfied with
spiritualism, although he will havo a
chanco to talk to spirits.
Notice to Political Parties.
"I havo also a notlco to serve on tho
Democratic and Republican parties. The
Latter-day Saints who fight their own
peoplo wllL never mako good Democrats
or good Republicans, They should stick
with their own party." This statement
seemed approved by the congregation.
"I want to servo a notice on tho apos
tates. Any man who lifts up his voice
against us Is a coward. I am C feet 3
inches when I feel well (smiles In tho
congregation) and I think It would bo
cowardly for mo to attack a man four
feet high. Yet our church has compara
tively few members. We aro about 200.000
adults. 100.COO children, and I hope there
will L- lOO.OCO moro added this year. Yet
tho wVrld of ao many moro In number
attacks us. t
"Whon apostates, or our own people, ar
ray thomsclvoH against us, they should
stop aside. I have been many things In
my life. In! thp way of business, but I
never had an apostlo say anything In the
way of advice. I havo beon In tho mis
sionary Held, and an officer In the church
but I never had anyone speak to me from
tho church on my franchise or my poll
tics. And this In thirteen years of church
work. All I have to eny to these apoH
tates and members of our own church
who attack us. Is this; 'If you don't like
the way we're doing, then get out of tho
way. If you won't help us, get out of. tho
