Men and women voters in Utah who sympathize with the American party movement, should vote
j the American party ticket straightl If this shall be done, the American party will carry this county,
li. and also make such a great State vote as to instire our holding the balance of power two years hence. C
V Don't bother about the candidates on the other tickets, except where tho American ticket contains no can- f
Y didates. Don't try to defeat tho purposes of the church by voting a part of a Republican local or State -j-X
ticket, or part of a Democratlo local or Stato ticket. Tho right way to reach our noble aim is to first .
X enfranchiso Salt Dake county and then proceed to the rest of the State. The way you can rondor the best

Deseret News Afraid

Accepted Advertisements for

Apostolic Liar Did Not Dare Let tho
Mormon People Know tho
The Deseret News has printed politi
cal advertisements for all parties, and
the American party attempted to buy
"space for a statement of Its .position In
Manager "Whitney agreed lo sell one
column to the committee for a price
which was accepted by the committee.
The only proviso was lhat the matter
be not scurrilous1 or defamatory. He
said 11 would be submitted to the editor
for acceptance or rejection.
Tho manuscript was txmt to the News
long before the News went to press, and
was returned with the statement that
"It was impossible to use copy at so
late an hour."
Here Is the copy sent and rejected.
We shall leave It to any fair-minded
man if It was scurrilous or defamatory:
It has been so often asserted thnt the
American party of Utah Is a ("00 to the
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day
Saints and of the Mormon people in gen
eral, that this means Is adopted to pre
sent to the renders of tho Deseret News
a few facts that every man and woman
who may go to tho polls tomorrow may
carry with them a correct impression of
tho real mirposos of tho American party.
It Is stated that the purpose of tho or
ganization Is to glvo non-Mormons com
plete control of affairs In tho county, and
tho Stale, so as to prevent the Mormon
people from participating In tho local
There Is no such purpose. Gcnllle bus
iness houses and Gentile officials do not
discriminate between Mormons and Gen
tiles In the employment of their assist
ants. The Gentllo firms employ moro
Mormon young men and womon than
they do Gcntll Aro the Mormon mer
chants and tho Mormon officials, as gen
erous? It has been charged that If tho Ameri
can party Is successful tho Mormons
would bo disfranchised. There has nover
been a slnglo fact developed or a slnglo
expression made during tho campaign
that would Justify this statement.
The American party contends, and lt
believes, that the principles which nro
contended for are as friendly to tho Mor
mon people an to the Gentllo people.
The American party aslcs nothing more
than that Utah shall bo as other Suites
where a man's politics and a man's re
ligion havo nothing to do with his rights
as a citizen.
It askn that when a man or a woman
dcaireB employment or desires, to run for
ofllco thlB employment or this ofllco bo
not baned upon a religious test.
Tho American party contends that lt
In not right that the Jilgh church ofllclalft
lake active pari In political or buslnoss
affairs that tho first great duty of thoso
leader and teachers Is to tholr church
as a religious organlzatloru
Wo contend that lt Is not possible for
religion and politics to be engaged in by
tho leadore without bringing criticism and
condemnation upon tho church and sor
row and strlfo to tho people.
It was tho church ltsolf that first said
that its high priests should not engage In
political affairs. The American party has
uccn, slnco this order was promulgated,
that great activity In politics has been in
dulged in by apostles and other honorod
leaders of tho church that tho real ene

Why tho necessity of drawing church
If the leaders of tho church aro deter
mined to draw such lines, Is lt not mor
ally certain that the situation will bo
sure to come when non-Mormons will bo
forced to rofuso employment to Mor
mons? Tho American party asks that tho
church leaders do not take actlvo part In

fair and American-like, but that It Is the

The history of the world has proved
that religion, politics and business will

The Tribune has offered Its space to
Congressman Howell and others of the
opposition. It has not required of them
any contract as to what was to bo

did not send around his advertisement.
The Tribune Is not afraid to let Its
readers know what are the platforms

has kept Its people In darkness.

Glorious Opportunity to Rid
Utah From Rule of
Salt Lake County Seems to Be Afire
With Purpose to Vote the
The drift of sentiment In Salt Lake
county seems to be In great force In
favor of the American party ticket.
The. bold work of the political-leaders
of the church Sunday and yesterday
proved to scores of non-Mormon Dem
ocrats and liberal-minded Mormon
Democrats that It Is the purpose of r.he
priesthood to defeat the American
ticket if possible, by centering all their
strength on the county Republican
This effort has been so bold this year
that some of the men who are closest
In the Democratic org.oJil. nation openly
confess that the "hunch" has been
given agalnsl them.
Not all of the Democrats concede
this, however. They are clinging to
the hope that they will yet pull
through, but there Is no possible show
in Salt Lake county, on the surface,
for a single man on tho ticket.

Women in Earnest.
The American women of Utah are
desperately in earnest this year. They
know thatr the sisterhood In other
States are. longing and praying for tho
triumph of a party whose object It Is
to rid this State of all elements that
degrade and lower them. They shall
go to the polls today and make their
cross (X) In the circle under the starry
emblem of American liberty.
They are not so much Interested In
genoral affairs as In local affairs. Most
of them will vote for their respective
choice for President. All of them who
love Utah, who love their children, who
believe In the sanctity of the fireside
and, as Senator Fairbanks said, in tho
sacredness of "a home with one moth
er," will vote the American ticket
straight, and they will vote right.
