THE FATE OF CERTAIN VICTIMS.
Judge Hllcs says for himself and the
American party that no warfare Is be
ing made upon the religion of the Mor
mon people. Ho says also for himself
and tho American party that the pres
ent controversy is not wagrd against
the plural marriage practlcas or rela
tions of- that relatively small cult In
the church which hns continued '.o defy
tho law and to transgress against the
manifesto of the church Itself.
The Tribune Is with Judge lilies and
the American party on these points, but
it is duo to tho American party, the
Women's Auxiliary of that great or
ganization and to The Trlbuno, that no
misconstruction shall now or hereafter
bo made of the attitude which has been
assumed concerning this social ques
tion. This paper has not condoned, nor does
It intend to havo Its eilonce construed
as a condonation of polygamy or un
lawful cohabitation, but recognizes
that the proper object of the American
party Is a warfare, insistent and de
termined to tho end. against tho exer
cise of political power by the leaders of
So far as polygamy and unlawful co
habitation are concerned, .tho church
tfsolf In TWO na elmwri v Ifa mnnlfjcfn
nnd the official Interpretations; there
of, bound all Its followers ns well as
Its leaders to abstain from further of
fense against the laws.
. "Whatever may havo been the feelings
of the Mormon people as to the sanc
tity of plural marriage at thut time
feelings against which The Tribune ut
ters no present remonstrance after
that date there was neither excuse of
religion to practice nor justification of
either law or religion to cotulor.o.
Tho Tribune nnd most of the leaders
of the American party In Utah S'ol
a profound pity for those yourirr men
nnd women who, after the manifesto,
were coaxed or permitted to form
polygamous relations. Their fate In
deed will bo a hard one. Unlike their
fathers and mothers, whose relations of
this character had full social recocnl
tlon in the church and were founded on
a belief that the law would some time
be so construed as to give protection,
their relations are not only prohibited
by a civil law which nas been deter
mined to be constitutional, but are
forbidden by the letter of the law of
their own church.
Furthermore, and more ghastly still,
the children born of plural marriage
slnqe the fourth day of January, 1S9G,
are left without legitimacy under the
law by a law passed with the con
sent of the loaders of the church itself.
These people and their Innocent
progeny will have trouble enough,
without being pursued by a political
party. It may be that the law will
take cognizance and prosecute some of
tho offenders; It may be that by tho
methods employed of exile and eva
sion they may escape the consequences
of the law, but In any case their fate
is a sad one.
Wo ,believe. that President Joseph
F. Smith saw a great light when
he encountered tho massive pow
er of tho United States at Wash
ington last winter. We believe
that he returned homo determined that
no more plural marriages should be
permitted in the church: and that ho
warned those of his apostles who other
wise might have continued to solem
nize polygamous ceremonies, that they
must Instantly cease. We do not think
anyrauthoritatlve permission has been
given from tho presidency or apostolatc
for a plural marriage since President
Smith had to acknowledge before tho
Investigating Committee that he was
living In defiance of the laws of God
If these propositions be correct, plu
ral marriage as a factor In community
life In Utah, will cease to be. We wish
wo could say with unqualified certainty
uiai u wouiu torever cease to be. But
while we believe that the President of
the Church was eo impressed with the
majesty of the country and the Govern
ment, so overawed by the Irresistible
force which he saw that he has sus
pended all possibility of new plural
marriages for the present; we greatly
fear that the practice might again be
resumed if it were not for tho fact that
tjie American party has arisen to take
away political power from the church
leaders,, without which they will not
dare to permit Infractions of this law.
Onco more let It be understood that
The Tribune does not condone and will
not condone these offenses; but it rec
ognizes that the fight la not now
against the few scores of young men
and women, who permitted themselves
to be misled into this practice, but
against the leaders who desired to
build up a polygamous cult to succeed
them in tho management ofchurch af
fairs. For the young people who are indlr
cated, The Tribune has a profound
Pity. Their leaders havo shown that
they are selfish enough to discard and
to leave to their fate these self same,
ardent and devoted followers. with
the law against them and the offspring
of their polygamous relations; with the
social status, even among their own
people, denied to the wives and children
of polygamous marriage formed since
1S90; and with the church leaders de
termined to protect themselves by re
nouncing these same victims, Ihelr fate
Is indeed pitiable.
Before 1830 the whole church rallied
around these, polygamlsts, willing to
flght and die for them. Since 1S90 the
people who have gone into the relation
have done so in defiance of tho law of
the church, tho law of the land, and
in most costly disregard of the welfare
of tho members of the church and all
tho citizenship of Utah.
Tho leaders are responsible for per
mitting this; they aro responsible for
the law which was passed under which
tho offspring born under polygamous
marriage since January 1, 1S9G, are left
without the rights of legitimacy; they
nre responsible for tho life-long sorrow
which has come to some bravo
and mistaken young women in
this State; they are responsible
for the odium which has come upon
nil Utah because of the violation of
this covenant. And wo predict that
these same, leaders will leave the young
men and women who havo contracted
plural marriage since 1S90 to their own
fate, refusing to them, In case of prose
cution for their offense or In case of
publicity of their relation, the conso
lation of relltrlous fraternity,
It will be seen that the American
party may well leave the question 'of
plural marriage alone for the present
at least. Its duty, as Judge lilies has
expressed it and as The Tribune agroc3,
is to wage unrelenting warfare against
political domination by the leaders of
the church, under which political dom
ination they practice their business
monopoly, but without which political
domination their business monopoly
can bo nssalled and plural marriage
cannot bo restored.
JUDGE KING'S TWISTINGS.
Judge King, In his remarks In Farm
Ington on Friday evening, Is reported
to have said that there was no need
for the American party in Utah; that
whatever problems, If any, there were"
in Utah, they could be settled by the
two national parties, "without the
feigned assistance of a third."
For fourteen years, now, those two
national parties havo been engaged In
tho process of "settling whatever prob
lems exist here." With what success?
Have they made any advancement In
settling these questions? Nay,' have
they not, Instead, most woefully lost
Has there at any time In the four
teen years that the two national par
ties have had the field to themselves,
been a campaign in which both have
not been dominated by the power-wicld-Ing
Has there ever been an election in
which there has not been a din about
the church interference and domination
In politics, and a full knowledge and
confession that the church loaders
would give the victory to which ever
side It chose?
Has there ever boon a time when
Judge King and Judge Powers havo not
claimed that such Interference was ex
erted, and when they failed to denounce
It, save only the times when It came to
Is it not the plain, unvarnished fact,
so plain as to need no proof and re
quire no admissions from anybody,
that this church domination is, and all
along has been, fully recognized? So
much so that office-seekers and poli
ticians, Mormons and Gentiles alike,
from all portions of this Stale and
from other States, have worn a trail In
the walk to the president's ofllce, to beg
the Influence and support of the church
In their political ventures?
Is It not true, further, that this church
Interference is growing bolder, more
grasping, more open, in Its dominance
and control, each year?
Does not every one know that such
an exhibition of church power and
tyrannous rule as was seen at tho late
Republican State convention could not
have been possible In any political con
vention ton years ago?
For far less, the Democratic State
convention of 1S95 was reconvened, and
recorded Its empljatlc protest against
this interference of the ecclesiastical
And yet, In spite of the patent, shame
ful, outrageous domination of the Re
publican State convention, there was
not a member of the Republican parly
mi.- juutpcjiuuiice oi cnaracter,
the patriotic, country-loving Impulse, to
demand the reconvening of that con
vention, nor even make the faintest pro
test against its slavish subservience.
Why, then, should Judge King speak
of leaving this burning question further
to the handling of the two national par
ties? Do we not all know that the same
Influences dominate both, and that to
continue to put our trust in those par
ties is simply to abandon the field to
the church power?
How a man having knowledge of these
facts, and of the history of church pol
itics, of the ecclesiastical domination of
both parties, as well as of the constant
loss of American sentiment and gain
of the church power and Judge King
knows It all can exhibit such super
natural stupidity as to 3ay that a con
tinued rule of both national parties by
tho church will cure church domination
in politics, is a phenomenon that taxes
the utmost resources of the human
mind to accept the plea In good faith.
The Utah County Democrat Is begin
ning to find things out. It reports that
"one Harvey Cluff" told tho people of
Provo Bench tho other evening that O.
"W. Powers is an enemy of tho Mormon
people, and that thoy ought not to elect
him to Congress. And the Democrat,
under pretense of defending tho Judge
and urging his election, takes pains to
give the Judge's old Liberal record, his
zeal and determination "that knew no
yielding" in Its cause, and to say that
he "fought every inch of tho ground
and gave no quarter." It Is a defense
that looks suspiciously like a warning
to the Mormons, which they will fully
understand. It Is probably by such
means that Chairman Spry intends to
capture two Mormon Democrats for the
Republicans to every Gentile Republican
