MOCK-HEROICS OF THE "NEWS."
The statement of the Deseret News
that this paper, which the Newn has)
chossn to designate as the anti-Mormon
organ, "hales tho church and would
gladly annihilate it," deserves irore than
the passing mention which was accord
ed lb that gasconading sentence, quoted
from the News in yesterday morning's
The News knows, as well as does
every intelligent reader of The Tribune,
that we arc not actuated by any hatred
of the church nor do we entertain any
expectations of its annihilation.
Hate of tho church, If any exists,
must bo from thoso misguided people
who are within tho power of the leaders,
and whose pernonal liberty and prop
erty rights) are being crushed In the
name of Christ to aggrandize the world
ly standing of men who ppeok In tho
Great Redeemer's name but practice
such things an ho used the lash to cor
rect. Annihilation of the church can only
come from within, and Is to be expected
only from the false leaders who drag the
church before them as a protection
whenever they fear public Judgment.
Such being the case, neither The Tri
bune nor the American party, both of
which are entirely outside the church,
entertains either the feeling or the de
Eire which the News falsely attributes
This is an old trick of the Desjret
News, particularly under Its present
editorship. Every time a particular
practice of a particular coterie
of church leaders has been crit
icised from the outside, the News has
tried to arouse Its followers to a mad
pitch of enthusiasm by talk about "per
secution from tho ungodly," "assaults
upon eternal truth," "vindictive con
spiracies and slanderous utterances
against tho Lord's anointed," "assaults
upon tho entire church with a hope of
blotting' it from the face of the earth!"
And upon this creation of mock-heroics
by the News, it has placed the capstone
of its prophecy that "the work would go
nlmif .tlia wloViirl u-niilrt f r 11 ltltr their
own pits, the Lord would protect his S3r
van Is in their sacred rights," etc.
If the church were assajlod and per
secuted, If these men were the Imita
tors of tho lowly Redeemer and were
spoken falsely of for His sake, all men
who havo read history would agree
that the prediction of the News would
likely come to fulfillment.
But the controversy relates to no
church, as a church, to no faith, as a
faith; to no followers of Jesus, as such.
The fight is being waged by The Tri
bune merely to obtain an adherence to
the Constitution of the State of Utah,
which was deliberately accepted by the
people of Utah after having been framed
with the approval of the News and Its
The flghl of The Tribune and the
American party is against the forsworn
and Inhibited practices which ecclesiasts
have resumed under the protecting de
nial and evasion of the Deseret News.
The Tribune is as well aware as is the
Deeeret News that persecution only en
hances the intensity of religious falthf;
and Tho Tribune would not induce per
secution even If it could. But the News
knows as well as does The Tribune that
n&ver once In ull the long controversy
with the people of the United StAtes
have the leaders of tho church been able
to hold to any practice that was antag
onistic to the sentimentalities of the
people of this Nation.
Away with thlB mummery then! Tour
church is not attacked. Your inhibited
practices are criticised.
Cense this cowardly effort to shelter
yourselves behind the whole body of
your industrious and law abiding people'
Cease the attempt to mislead them into
the idea that they are the object of
somebody's hate and attempted annihi
lation. Thero is nothing to this case except
the primary, indestructible and event
ually triumphant fact: That the people
of the United States will not permit the
leaders of the Mormon people to 'con
tinue the violation of the pledges upon
which Statehood was granted.
The News may call that persecution
if It will; but then the News, on this
subject, says so many things that are
not so, that Its words will count for
nothing except among thoso people who
have a selfish Interest in a perpetuation
of tho wrong or who are the Ignorant
victims of that wrong.
ONLY ONE .CANDIDATE.

candidate, In case George Sutherland
should retire from his aspiration to be

the gift of the people, so long as the
present arrangement continues.
The ambitions of other men are un
considered; the abilities of other men
are as nothing; and the desire of the
people has no expression. An apostle
of the church determines who shall
hold this ofllcc under his direction, and
up to the present time George Suther
land is that man.
If Mr. Sutherland shall accept tho
suggestion of his truest friends -and
admirers he will renounce the favor
which has been extended to him now,
as he well knows, for a price to be paid
later; and Ihen the opening question In
this article may be considered by the

KNOWING THE LAtY.
The Constitution of this State, a3 we
have abundantly shown by citation and
quotation, absolutely forbids any Intru
sion of sectarianism Into tho public
schools. Tt follows that any statute, or
construction of a statute, that should
permit such Intrusion would be uncon
stitutional. That the Mormon church
authorities are so Intruding Into the
public schools of Utah Is made very
clear by the exposures we have made In
connection with the uo-called "religion
classes" of that organization.
The Constitution of a State Is restric
tive; it limits the power of the; Legis
lature, and Is designed to protect the
people from legislative :i"ggressIon and
oppression. It is especially powerful in
protecting tho rights of the minority
from oppression by the majority, and
that Is one of Its most beneficent pur
poses. This now comes into special promi
nence when we consider the generality
of the school districts throughout the ru
ral communities of this State, where the
Mormons are In massed majorities. In
such-ca.se, with the Legislature also un
der control of the same majority Inter
est, the minority would have no rights
at all, unless they could appeal to the
Constitution for their protection. But
this is precisely what they can do, and
will do, and the lawlessness and en
croachment will havo to atop.
Back of the Constitution, however,
and of immediate bearing on the ques
tion of sectarian intrusion into the
schools, are the stipulations of the En
abling Act, which granted the magnifi
cent areas of land to this Stale for pub
lic school purposes. This grant was re
gal in its magnificence, and It Is calcu
lated to confer untold benefits upon the
people of this State. But It was con
ferred upon the express condition that
there must be no intrusion ot sectarian
Ism In arfy form into the public schools
so endowed with this mighty land
This land was granted on the condi
tion stated. If that condition is violat
ed, there can be no doubt whatever that
Congress can withdraw the grant Con
gress can at any time when it is satis
fled that Utah defies and refuses to
carry out the condition upon which the
schools were to receive -this land, forbid
the Issue of further patents to the school
lands; and at any time It can suspend
such Issue until the facts are Inquired
In a church meeting at Brlgham City
last week, Apostle Rudger Clawson re
ferred to what he called the crusade be
ing waged asalnst the "religion classes,"
and said he wondered If the people en
gaged in that crusade thought that the
Mormon people were entirely ignorant of
the law. One might indeed reasonably
think so from their high-handed pro
cedure In their Intrusion into and occu
pancy of the public school buildings
with their "religion classes." But un
fortunately, the history of Utali shows
that it is by no means ignorance of the
law that causes the leading hierarchy
to violate and defy it, but that spirit
of determination to bo a law'unto them
selves which has been so constant and
so obnoxious, and which has brought so
much unhapplness and misery upon the
whole people through the stiff-necked
obstinacy and viciousncss of a few who
saw, or thought they saw, personal ad
vantage and prestige for themselves in
a course that brought the whole people
under1 the ban, and visited upon the
whole sect the condemnation of tho en
lightened sentiment of the most broad
minded, generous, and magnanimous
Nation of people that dwells upon the
face of the earth.
THAT CHURCH LABOR PLAY.
The statement carried in Tho Tri
bune's news columns that an arrange
ment was In process of negotiation look
ing toward the supplanting of the Greek
and Hungarian labor at the smelters
south df this city, with Mormon labor
ers to be supplied by tho church au
thorities, has been fully borne out by
the facts. There undoubtedly was such
negotiation. How far it proceeded,
whether it will be pushed, and what the
ultimate reBtilt will he, are uncertain,
and hard to get at, as usual with all
matters In which the church takes a
Now, It is quite the common thing for
any church to endeavor to help ite mem
bers to needed employ; tho Mormon
church has done much good and com
mendablo work in this line, and the Sal
vation Army is conspicuously active In
such work. There Is a vast difference,
however, between this, that the
churches u.vuaUy do and what the Mor
mon church has done in the past, and
what is now proposed.
To lead the homeseoker to the spot
where he can make his home; to furnish
employ to men in opening up the coun
try, to utilize their labor in new work,
as In tho past, Is surely a bcneflclent
work. But to oust other laborers to
make room for its own; to do this for
the church's purpose of creating a mo
nopoly in the labor market for its own
advantage, and to destroy the voluntary
organizations of laborers; to carry out
a programme like this not for the good
of the laborer, but for ulterior purposes
and without regard for his welfare, Is
quite another matter. In fact, it ap
proaches the labor question from a
standpoint precisely the opposite to that
used heretofore by the church. It Is a
step In tho direction of tho universal
control of all the avenues of business,
politics, soclolology, economics, indus
tries, and labor which appears to bo
craved by th6 present directorate of the
As such, It Is the duty of all, employ
ers, as well as employed, to resist It.
The employed will of course oppose It,
as the plan looks toward their ouster
from employ. The employers must re
sist It or fall under the domination of
an arbitrary power which is as much
more absolute than labor union control
as the soul is higher than the body. The
union looks to the material Interest of
Its members; the church labor bureau
would have that control as absolute as
the union has, and In addition the spir
itual control that complete aubrerviencc
long inculcated on the one hand and ac
kno.wledgad on the- other, would give.
Th labor union always gives notice,
and has a specific grievance; the church
would need no such excuse, but would
act as It might choose, without reason
given, and without notice.
And thus the- last stale of the
employer would be worse than his first.
He will do wll to make thorough exam
ination before going Into any relations
with any church labor bureau, and ex
tremely cautions in his Investigations of
the whole subject.
