THE CHURCH ORGAN'S 0ISH0NESTY.
The Deseret News, tho orgun of the
Mormon church, makes this editorial
The manner In" which demaBOgue.s nnd
slanderer.? are conuuctlnr; their war
.Wilnst tho "Mormons" in Idaho and In
Utah, putx them beyond extended notice
by respectablo people, and flhoukl be tho
mcun of defeating their scheme, as wo
bellcvo it will. In both States there will
be but few voters who will bo lnlluonccd
by the lioodn of falsehood, libel and lndc
concy that have boon turned Into political
channels. Decertt and 6eSr-rcspcctlng citi
zens' will pay no attention to tho slush,
but will quietly make up their minds
what Is the right thins to do for their
country, their State nnd their party, and
I refuso to bo turned from their course ay
any amount of special pleading, scarrllouw
assertions, Impotent threats or partisan
It would bo dimcult indeed to crowd
more implied and express falsehood
Into a single paragraph than the News
.nay pacKCd jnto mat one. xo sucn state
of affairs eMsts either in Utah or In
Idaho, ns the-News assumes.
First, there is no war against the Mor
mons in cither State; second, what ef
fort there Is. Is not conducted by dema
gogues or slanderers, but the very best
and most patriotic, most substantial,
most Intelligent people of both States
are engaged. In it; third, the fight in
Idaho and that In Utah Is by no means
the same, although the News for Its own
purposes combines the two.
In Idaho, the non-Mormons are In the
vast majority; there Is In the Constitu
tion of that State the authority for a
complete and drastic cure for any evils
that may exist in the form of church
interference in politics. We say Inter
ference, because that Is all the church
can do in Idaho; It can meddle, but can
not dominate. In Utah Its sway of both
the old parties la complete.
- In Idaho, the non-Mormons can at any
time pass a stntule that would Instantly
cure the evil, stop the Interference; and
they can do this without calling into
being any separate party for the pur
pose. In Utah, the non-Mormons are In
a hopeless minority, and the Legislature
is merely a special form of church ac
tivity; It Is in no sense a lawmaking
body or a body to act for the people at
large, but only for and at the Instiga
tion of the church leaders.
The fight In Utah is simply, solely,
and avowedly for the saparatlon of the
church from politics nnd from public
affairs, as the Constitution requires.
There has been no slander against the
church, no demagogic plea, nor suspi
cion of such a thing. The Issue has been
stated plainly, but without rancor and
without any pleas save those necessarily
Involved In the case.
If any demagogues have engaged In
slandering the Mormons, we will join
with tho News In denouncing these
demagogues and refuting the slanders.
Let it name the demagogues and specify
the slanders, in this alleged "war." If
there is anything that is "beyond the
notice of respectable people," let It be
designated. But for heaven's sake, let us
first find out who those "respectable
people" are who are so touchy about the
matter; let us be sure that they are in- ;
deed respectable, and not mere vicious
and determined lawbreakers, deflers
alike of the laws and of the decent sen
timents of the American people.
Self-confessed pledge-breakers, per
sons who make themselves perjurers
and suborners of perjury, make a mock
of sacred things as well as of common
decency when they glibly pose as "rc-
STJOCtahlft nnnnlrv " u-Vin u i i
toned to take notice of "slanders."
There are people who no doubt would
wish to have the loyal people of the
community consider them respectable,
whose sworn testimony makes them
tricksters and malefactors. Let us have
done with the assumption of virtue and
respectability by people who are by all
the canons of the ccode to which they
appeal, clearly outside of all the rules
of the game.
On one point, however, tho News Is
quite right; the "decent, self-respecting
people" will pay no aletntlon to its
slush and barefaced hypocrisy and false
assumptions and presentations, but
"will quietly make up their minds what
is the right thing to do, for their coun
try, their State, and their party," and
Will do It with loyal good will, uninflu
enced "by any amount of special plead
ing, scurrilous assertions, Impotent
threats, or partisan predictions." And
It might well be added, without regard
to any Pharisaical snlvellngs on the
part of hypocritical pretendcra to a re
spectability upon which they have not
the slightest claim.
The arrangement of a basis upon
which the sensational event of the Rus
sian fleet's firing on the British fisher
men may be settled, Is certainly to the
world's advantage. It would have been
an international calamity if war had
arisen from that affair, Inexcusable out
rage though it was, as reported. But
the awful loss of life and destruction
of property, together with the harass
ment of all the world that would ensue
upon a war between Great Britain and
Russia, make welcome any decent
means to avert It.
Speaking of the famous pension order
which Judge Parker snys ho would ab
rogate and then ask Congress to enact .
into law, Judge Lochren, who was
Commissioner of Pensions wlion Clove-land-
was President, defends the order,
and does not see why any one should
object to It. He himself made Just such
an order when he was Commissioner,
and nobody ever, criticised iL He con
siders Commissioner Ware's ruling en
tirely right and reasonable. "I don't
think it Is any usurpation of the powers
of Congress at all," says he; "it i
simply promulgating a rule that
I serves to carry out the intention of Con-
gross In passing that act," referring to
the statuto under which the prder was
Issued. This Is high Democratic au
thority in support of tho order, higher
authority, In fact, than Judge Parker's
in opposition, for Judge Lochren under
stands the pension legislation of,the
country far better than Judge Parker
THE SUBJUGATION OF lNTERPRISE.
Some readers of Tho Tribune think
that we have wandered far afield In dis
cussing the tithe paying to the leaders
of tho Mormon church In Utah. At
first glance, It would seem to be no
business of the Gentiles how much the
-faithful followers of the churdh paid
out of their Income nor what became of
the fabulous sum which passed annual
ly into the possession of tho leaders.
This Is but a shallow Judgment. In
tho first place, while directly paid by
Mormons, considerable of the tithe Is
contributed In the long run by Gentiles.
Suppose that there could bo suddenly
Imposed a rufe by which 05 per cent of
tho people of Colorado were obliged to
pay into some fund, for other than pub.
He expenditures, 10 per cent of their
annual Income; and suppose that the
remaining 35 per cent were large em
ployers of the G3 per cent; that thiy
were sometimes in partnership with
them, and sometimes were landlord and
sometimes were tenant. Is It "not cer
tain that in the course of a few years
the burden of that 10 per cent deduc
Hon from annual Income would be so
diffused as that the 35 per cent would
be carrying their full share of It? How
could it be otherwise?
But passing the point that the Gen
tiles In Utah now contribute Indirectly
their full share of tho tithing, they havo
still another Interest in the question.
Suppose that the Standard Oil company
crowd were to use their financial pow
er in suqh a way as that they could
realize an equivalent of 10 per cent up
on the Income of the majority of the
people of the State of Ohio, and that
they were to use the enormous fund
thus created annually, in the establish
ment or absorption of business houses
engaged In the various channols of
commerce. Is It not certain that they
would very soon destroy nil competi
tion? By virtue of this vast fund de
ducted from others without cost to
themselves they would be able to under
mine every man's business endeavor,
and very soon he could only maintain
himself by virtue of their license ac
corded to him.
Let us make a supposition concerning
a local affair. Assume that the leaders
of the church propose to control the
business of salt production. They es
tablish works nnd supply the murket
at their own price. Some member of
their own church, seeing an eligible lo.
cation for a salt garden and believing
that he can produce for local consump
tion at less than the prevailing price,
invests his money. He immediately
comes into competition with the hier
archy, who have not only tho legitimate
strength of their business, but who
have one and a half million dollars a
year of unearned profits (a part of
which he contributed) with which to
fight him. Is there any doubt as to the
If he have a Gentile partner, Is not
that Gentile partner Injured by the
tithe-paying of the other, slnco it fur
nishes out of their combined resources
an Increase of the munitions with
which their powerful enemy seeks to
destroy them? And even if the new
competitor be a company comnosed on-
tirely of Gentiles, they are still victims
of the same nefarious exaction; their
Mormon employees draw wages every
month, and out of these wages they
give 10 per cent to the competing church
salt company, with which to destroy
There are being malntnlned In tho
poorhouscs of Utah, and there are be
ing sustained In part by outdoor relief
from public treasuries, scores and hun
dreds of Mormons who through all
their years of activity were tlthe-pay
ers to the church. If these people had
Invested 10 per cent of their annual In
come In savings banks, they would not
today be the objects of public charity.
Gentiles are larger contributors In pro
portion to their number, to the laxea
of the State than are tho Mormons;
and, therefore. In proportion to num
bers, tho Gentiles arc greater sufferers
from this phase of tithe-paying than
are those who voluntarily or Involun
tarily bestow 10 per cent of their in
come upon tho hierarchy.
If the effects of the tithe-paying were
confined to the Mormons themselves.
the Gentiles would only have this right
to protest that it is an economic wrong
for any class of citizens to live in Idle
ness and non-productiveness at the ex
pense of Industry and production; and
this argument would be so abstract and
remote as that It could scarcely appeal
to the Mormon mind. But where the
burden falls, as It does, upon Gentile
shoulders as well as upon Mormon
shoulders, there Is a right lo resist.
The church leaders take their hundreds
of thousands of dollars (as we have
shown, about sixteen hundred thousand
dollars annually), apparently out, of the
income of Mornions, but In reality out
of the wholo community. The hierarchy
uses this tremendous sum to support Its
business enterprises, which are rapidly
becoming monopolies. It not only
makes servitors of Its own people, but It
threatens the entire subjugation of the
commercial spirit of this State.
The. news from Port Arthur is
despondent from the Russian' stand
point. Gen. Stoessel, in command, evi
dently considers the end not far off, and
he does not Intend to survive the fall
of tho fortress. But at least it can be
said of him that he has made a noble
defense, protracted beyond all expecta

STRANGERS NOT WELCOftlE.
From the Chlcauo Chronicle.
The charge that strangers aro not
made to feel at home la some of the
big churches ln New York is well
founded, according to the observation
made by a Pennsylvanlan who has
lived there for ten years. "A few years
ago I rented a pew in one of the big
churches ln Fifth avenue and kept It
for a year. My family Vas not numeri
cally large enough to fill the pew, and
I notified the UBher that I could usu
ally nccommOdato from two to three
strangers. I learned Indirectly that the
sexton, who had the renting of tho
pews, objected to too much liberty on
my part. He said that If every pew
hold;r In tho church made the same
sort of offer he could not come up to
tho expectations of the governing
board of tho church, which expected
him to rent every pew. The logic of
this was that If strangers desired to
attend that particular church very
often they would be expected to pay
for their sittings. To put It a little
plainer, strangers were not welcome,
although a sign ln the vestibule said
they were "
