American party, Mr. Sutherland Is

J Brother Roberts spoke- ardently for
i Powers in Utah county, but he did not
' ' , go so far as to advise the bishops to
disobey tho voice of authority.
Brother Cutler can reply to those who
express disatl?faction with hig speech,
' that It is their duty to like it, as
Hfc j Apostle Smoot has approved It.
Hj Utah county, according to tho Hon.
, ' j; Sam .Thurman, will not glvo a big
i Smoot majority. But the bishops do not
jj tell Brother Thurman everything.
1 1 Jf you enjoy Inconsistencies, save
copies of speeches being made by Demo
Hj Y cratlc orators now, so as to contrast
them with wh.atth.ey will say after
jj Republicans at Richfield, who were
;j not pleased by Brother Cutler's speech.
Jj should remember that his specialty is
not the giving of Instruction but the re-
celving of It.
Ijlj On the other hand, 13 there not the
,1 possibility that Brother Roberts may
!' overdo the business of Indorsing Judge
Powers, there being some Gentiles left
in the Democratic party?
! Democratic orators may speak as
fl freely as they please In Utah county,'
i without objection from Apostle Smoot,'
as. he can easily send word to the
brethren not to mind them.
- Apostle Smoot cannot sec that he Is
I unfair to Mormon Democrats for, the

them to be something else on the extra

CHURCH USE OF SCH00LH0USES.
The Deseret News echoing the "re
ligion classes" address of President An
thon H, Lund at the recent conference,
has come out In an open defense of the
practice of using the public school
houses for the holding of such classes..
Its "argument" Is that as long as the
trustees of the school district agree,
there Is no legal or moral objection, and
that this ought to be clear to every sane
mind, the only objectors being "some
weak-minded, cranky, or malicious per
Precisely tho same line of argument
has' always been brought forward in
support of church control of public af
fairs: and precisely the' same eplthel5 j
have always been applied to objectors
to church dominance In affairs of state,
save that when the church dared to
carry out Its real purposes and desfres,
all such objectors were put in Jail or
banished from the community.
If there were any vafidity in the ar
gument for convenience In tho use of
the public school buildings for "religion
classes" or other sectarian uses, those
buildings should be open to all the sects
on precisely the same terms. But arc
they? By no means; they are for the
Mormon use only; the trustees are In
most cases all Mormons, there is nei
ther thought of sectarian use of such
schools by any other sect nor liberty of
refusal of such use by Mormons. The
trustee who would object would not
long remain a trustee.
It Is wholly a Mormon church matter.
The practice makes the public school
buildings a part of tho Mormon church
utilities, In many cases tho public
school teacher, also a Mormon, conducts
the "religion classes." There Is an
obtrusion of sectarianism into the pub
lic schools whenever that Is the fact:
for the pupils can hardly be expected to
draw the line of lino distinction be
tween school, instruction proper and the j
Instruction in the "religion classes,"
when these run into each other In the
same places and in the same day, with
scarcely a break, and tho same teacher
There is also a trenching upon the
public school Instruction whenever the
day's course, is cut short in order to
make time for the "religion classes."
And tho whole atmosphere surrounding
the school Is made by the use of the
building referred to a Mormon atmos
phere, and the schools are made to all
intents and purposes Mormon schools.
It is by reason of this Mormonizing
of the public schools that when a teach
er Is wanted for them, it is commonly
stipulated In "many of tho rural dis
tricts that such teacher shall be a
Mormon. Thus the school throughout
is kept under the control of the church.
The trustees are obliged to yield to the
demand of the bishop for the use of the
school buildings for church purposes,
or give place to those who will so
yield. The teacher Is also a Mormon,
and Is expected not only to teach the
school, but to be useful In church
work. All are under the control a con
trol to which every one willingly sub
mitsof the local authorities of the
. The general effect of It all is to make
the schools a part of the Mormon
church work. The inhibition against the
Intrusion of specific church Instruction
as a part of the public school curricu
lum is thus nullified, and there Is no
way to separate' the church work from
the public work of the schools. Even
though specific church dogma should
taint the school curriculum, there
would usually bo no one to complain of
It, so long as this taint did not appear
in the public reports or on the official
But suppose an Episcopal teacher, or
a Presbyterian, Methodist, Baptist,
Catholic, Lutheran or other teacher
should -ask the trustees for the use of
the school buildings to organize a "re
ligion class:" would he. get It? Sup
pose, further, that he should ask for
the dismissal of the school certain days
in tho week, at an earlier hour than
usual, in order that he might the ear
lier get to work with his specially:
would it be done? Certainly not, and
yet it is done for the Mormon "religion
It is true that there Is a statute which
gives color of lav to this abuse of the'
public school privileges. But that stat
ute, so far from being taken as a fair
license in this matter, must rather be
considered In Itself as obnoxious intru
sion of the church into the domain of
the State, and as enacted by church In
fluence for Its own advantage in using
the public property for Its sectarian
purposes. And probably the courts, In
a test case, would pronounce that stat
ute to be unconstitutional, on a proper
showing of the rf acts.
Tho purpose of the Catholic authori
ties. In stipulating that the money for
the friars' lands should be paid in Ma
nila and remain for the use of the
church in the islands, is repudiated by
the Augustlnian friars, who demand
that their share of the cash amounting
to two million dollars bo paid In drafts
on London. Of course, tho disposal
which the church and the friars will
makG of the money when It Is paid over
Is not a concern of our Government,
which will issue the drafts to the credit
of the treasurer of the Philippines, and
his warrants will be paid to the ones
authorized to' receive them direct. But
tho American Catholics are disgusted
with this departure from the agreement
made by the late Pope Leo, the late
ArchbiBhop Guidi, who was his repre
sentative, and Gov. Tafu If that money,
which was depended on to rehabilitate
the church in the archipelago, Is taken
away, tho burden of providing tho
necessary money for the purpose will
fall on tho American Catholics; hence
their Very justifiable feeling In the matter.'
ELDER ROBERTS ON THE STuMP.
After an absence of six years from
the political arena, iJklcr B. H. Rob
erts appears, on the stump in this State,
in behalf of Judge Towers's Congres
sional aspirations. The Elder makes
prominent by repeating it, that he has
had personal differences with Judge
Powers, and also political differences,
but he spurns the lies that are being
told against the Judge, who has been
faithful as a Democrat since the sepa
ration on party lines, and who deserves
this ofllco at the hands of Democrats.
The Elder then branched off on the
discussion of general politics, claiming
that various National contentions, as
the tariff, the personal characteristics
of President Roosevelt and Judge Par
ker, and so on, are the real issues of
the campaign. But Elder Roberts is
sadly liable to error in his Ideas of
what constitute the true Issues of a
campaign. "We all remember that
when he himself ran for Congress, he
claimed that the Issue at stake Avas sil
ver, and that he was the champion of
the sliver cause; yet the silver plurali
ty of 53.592 for Rrvnn Iwn vnnrs hofnrd
dwindled under his championship to
6665, and when his real struggle for the
seat came on In Washington, silver was
not In any way a part of the light.
In one portion of his speech, how
ever, Elder Roberts touches upon the
real Issue, when he says "that the ma
terial and social Interests of the people
of this State are involved In this elec
tion." This Is a sentiment, however, which
he does not elaborate, and there Is
where his speech .was a distinct failure.
Would he hsxyfi us understand that
Judge Powers Is on the same side as
himself in the discussion which Is on,
of "the material and social Interests of
tho people of this State"
That discussion hinges on the proposi
tion whether the material Interests of
the State shall or shall not so far as
possible and so far as is profitable, be
gathered Into the line of the Mormon
church activities. Elder Roberts is
distinctly and emphatically on the
church side of that proposition. Dare
he charge that Judge Powers is on the
Similarly, with respect to "the social
interests of the people of this State,"
Elder Roberts Is, both by precept and
by practice, distinctly and emphatical
ly on the plural side of that ques
tion. However, he would hardly have
the temerity to charge that Judge
Powers is supporting him In that mat
ter. And yet what other meaning could
he have had In mind when urging the
"Independent vote" of "this State to
support Judge Powers In this election,
with respect to those same 'social in
terests?" Thoughtful men are asking them
selves what Is the meaning of the ap
pearance of Elder Roberts on the
stump at this time. Is it so that he can
make statements and Insinuations such
as those which, will be a damage to
Judge Powers, while pretending to sup
port him? Surely, the Elder Is too In
telligent a man not to know that this
must be tho solf pffeet nf thnt lrlnrl nf
Was Elder Roberts "set apart" by his
quorum to conduct this sort of a cam
paign, nominally for Powers but reall
against him? Did he get the consent of
his ecclesiastical superiors, and under
what understanding? WJtfit did that
consent Imply? ,
It Is difficult to think that Roberts's
support of-Eowers Is. genuine; his "ar
gument" for Powers does not carry any
conviction of genuineness. Besides,
good faith on his part in this matter
would mean a division In the church
But on the other hand, there can be
no doubt whatever that Representative
Howell has, and has had from the first
of his candidacy, the active and vigor
ous support of the church managers.
Have these now deserted him, and is
"the appearance of Elder Roberts on
the stump (of course, with the consent
and "harmony" of his quorum.) the sig
nal for the change of position by the
church and the rally of the faithful to
Judge Powers? It would be a cruel
blow to Brother Howell were this the
case, but there are not lacking other
sighs besides the appearance of Elder
Roberts on the stump, that this may be
so. And If it is so, it must be conceded
that the Elder Is doing his 'best, In his
perverted and polygamous way, for the
election of Jude Powers.
The prospects of an agreement be
tween the smeltermen and the farmers
upon the smoke and fumes question
seem to be favorable. The proposition
submitted on behalf of the smelter
operators seems to be perfectly fair, and
It can very properly be made the basis
of an agreement which will be Just to
all interests, and one which will afford
a permanent settlement of the wholo
question. To those who arc disposed to
reject this plan of procedure, The Trib
une would say that they are making a
mistake, and to appeal to the courts
would be worse yet, as nothing definite
could be had In many yea"rs, as' It would
go through ail the Federal tribunals,
and perhaps several times. Better cool
down and settle out of court.

In December, 1S91, the presidency
and apostles of the Mormon curch ap
pealed to the President of the United
SUntes, In the following piteous lan
guage: Our people are scattered; homes aro
mado desolato; many aro still In prison;
others aro uanl3hcd or In hiding. Our
hearts plead for these. In the past they
followed our counsels, and whllo they are
thus afflicted our souls aro In sack cloth
As shepherds of a patient and suffering
people, we ask amnesty for them, ana
pledge our faith and honor for their fu
ture. That was the cry of woe, that was tho
cry for mercy, which went up from
Utah to the seat of the most powerful
of earthly rulers.
These chastened men, leaders of a
chastened host, did not exaggerate nor
yet portray since human language was
powerless to do so much the awful
gloom in which the Mormon people of
that time were Immersed. In addition
to all the proscriptions and prosecutions
which they were enduring because of
adherence to a special tenet of their
faith, they were -almost without tho
rights of citizenship. They had no
voice In the general government, and
the political power of the Territory
which they had founded was almost en
tirely exercised by Gentiles.
Probably there had never been In the
history of the United States any ele
ment of its white population so devoid
of the privileges of pitizenshlp, and so
seemingly consecrate to subjugation by
another body of citizens holding supe
rior rights under the laws of the Re
public, The preceding years had been
filled with calamity; the future was
as forbidding as the portals of a tomb.
Out of their anguished hearts, the
leaders spoke; In their solemn confer
ence with their God, they pledged.
The answer which came to them was
worthy of the glorious man who stood
at the head of the most glorious gov
ernment of this world, Benjamin Har
rison. President of the United States.
He proclaimed to them a wide and gen
erous amnesty; Its acceptance was
sanctified by their own tears and en
nobled by the gratitude which even
their late opponents felt. Utah, by
pledge and by mercy, had come to her
Statehood followed, and the helots of
the post became the rulers of a splen
Gratitude! Look for it.

of the denunciations of It, Mr. Hetlin
