The Manti Messenger is not content
with the sufficiency of its former gen
erous compliments to Tho Tribune, but
now spoaks of this paper as the "mis
guided giant of Utah journalism.' '
Wo regard that as being sincere and
discriminating praise. The Messenger
knows a giant in journalism when it
sees one; and in view of tho kind of
guideB that tho Messenger is now fol
lowing, Tho Tribuno accopts, as the
most flattoring compliment, tho Mes
senger's statement that this paper is
"misguidod." Ono could scarcely re
tain his own seK-respect and follow
tho guides after whom tho Messenger
Bur, lot us ask about this "mis
guided" business. Tho Tribuno is
standing for tho supremacy of tho Con
stitution and tho laws of this State.
Ib that being "misguided"? Is thnt
attempting to "misguide" others?
Tho Tribuno Jb standing for the holi
noss of tho covonnnt by which Utah
enmo into tho Union. Is that boing
"misguided"? Is that attempting to
"misguido" otherB? Of whnt does Tho
Tribuno 's error consist? It would bo
interesting to have tho Manti Messen
ger, or any other sincere nowspapor
in Utah, stato in specific terms what
community errorB are boing committed
by this journal. On more than ono oc
casion The Tribuno has challenged tho
Desoret Nows to reply to tho most
specific declarations quoted from its
own prophets, seers and revelators, and
from its own columns in support of Tho
Tribune's position; and tho Deserot
News has been compelled to. a coward
dumbness. On more than ono occasion
Tho Tribuno haB offered to print in full
any reply of the Desoret News to
spooifio accusations against the hie
rarchy of tho Mormon church. On
more than one occasion Tho Tribuno
has Btatod that if tho Desoret News
would mako proof of any specific mis
statement concerning tho hierarchy Tho
Tribuno would gladly print tho correc
tion. When Joseph F. Smith wroto
an articlo for an outsido publication
and in it sought to fasten somo of his
own misdeeds upon dead authorities
of tho church, The Tribuno printed Iub
articlo. in full, roplied to it, and dared
tho Deseret Nows to copy otir roply in
conjunction with its articlo of Presi
dent Smith. Further, this paper of
fered, if nuy answor could bo made to
Tho Tribune's arraignment of Smith aa
a fnlsifior, to print that answer in full
and none camo. When Roberta deliv
ered his prepared address in Provo in
a vain attempt to protect tho hierarchy
from Tho Tribuno 's assaults, this paper
gavo the ItobertB address in full to
tho letter, anBwere'd the same and then
dared tho Deseret News to print tho
Roberts sermon, tho Tribune's reply,
nnd then an additional answer from
Roberts and still that coward dumb
nesB continued, because, while tho Nows
would givo plenty of spaco to tho ar
ticles of Smith and Roberts, it did not
dare to allow the followers of the
church to read any reply thereto. If

to read both Bides, to present both sides,
and yet tho church and all its devotees
who call us "misguicfed" aro entirely
unwilling that thoro Bhall be any hear

Mr. Manti Messenger, you know bet
ter. You know that if The Tribune
were so "miBguided" tho Deseret News
would nftf; hesitate to make The Trib
une's charges heard throughout the
Mormon land. It is because we are not
"misguided"; it is because the utter
ances of this papor aro true incon
trovertibly, eternally true; it is bocause
the purposes of this paper and tho
great American party are for tho up
lifting of Utah; that the Deseret News
and tho Manti Messenger and tho oth
er papers of Mormon affiliation dare
not present the American case to tho

CHEAP AND VERSATILE.
The Emery County Progress may bo
a Republican but, to quoto that pro
fane Westerner, "it is no bigot." In
speaking of tho evil work of the Re
publican machine of Salt Lake and
Provo, it Bays that "cheap akateB,
steering political machines, are akin
to cheap chauffeurs " engaged in the
running of costly automobiles. "Sooner
or later," Bays the Progress, "there's
going to be a wreck,"
Well, it will not bo a wTeck of a
genuine Republican machine. Tho
cheap chauffeur merely stole the labol
off a PoDe-Toledo ninety-horsepower
'06 model and pasted in on a broken
down old affair of obsolete and dis
carded make and called it a new buzz
wagon. In Utah it was tho old, dis
carded church maohine Telegated to
the scrap heap, pretendedly abandoned
by all its old owners, resurrected from
the heap of old and forgotten things
nnd branded by Reed Smoot with the
name "Republican." That' cheap
Bteerer will make a wreck "sooner or
later," It will bo a bad one for the
machine. It will be worse for the passengers.
And pursuing the simile of the Emery
County Progress, we will venture the
prediction that the cheap steerer will
not be on board tho machine when tho
wreck shall occur. Whilo his all too
confiding passengers are gathering
their several parts together and extri
cating themselves and each other from
the wreckage along will come Reed
Smoot, smiling as the day, in another
POLYGAMOUS TEACHING FORFEITS PROPERTY.
The attention of the Department of Justico ot the United States
is respectfully called to a sermon delivered by President Nephi L.
Morris of the Salt Lake Stake of Zion, and a trusted representative of
tho hierarchy, in the big Tabernacle of tho Mormon church in Salt
Lake City, August 26, 1906.
Tho Department of Justico is rominded that practically all of the
property of the Mormon church was escheated and seized to tho
Unitod States because of the violations of law by tho church. At
tention is further called to tho fact that cortain of tho property
was restored as being church properly and upon a showing that the
church no longer taught violation of law; and certain of the other
property was rostored upon a distinct covenant nnd a condition that
tho church would nevennoro promulgate polygamy.
This point cannot be stated too strongly. It is still in tho
archives, although it may havo passed from tho remembrance of men
now connected with tho Government of tho Unitod States, that tho
most, explicit stipulation was entered into thnt tho properly, former
" ly escheated nnd then belonging to tho United States had been re
stored to tho Mormon church upon its piteous appeals, and was not
to bo used in any way for the promulgation tho teachiug or tho
practice of polygamy.
On tho occasion mentioned President Nephi L. Morris, speaking
by nuthority, not only promulgated polygamy as a doctrine, but de
fended it an a practice and exalted its practicom ?is tho saviors of
mankind. Thorn was no equivocation about tho remarks of Presi
dent Morris. He plainly promulgated tho doctrine, and he thus
plainly violated tho condition upon which tho property wns re-permitted
to tho uso of tho Mormon church.
Tho Tribuno cnlls directly the attention of tho Dopartmcnt of
Justico at Washington to this flagrant misuso of a property which,
by tho failure of condition of grant, really belongs to tho Govern
ment of tho United States tho reason for directing tho matter to
Washington being that it would bo farcical to appeal to tho repre
sentatives of the Department of Justico in Salt Lako City, namely,
tho District Attorney or- tho Unitod States Marshal. Both of these
men received and they now hold their offices as a fief from the Mor
mon church' hierarchy. Both wcro selected by that hierarchy. Both
wore proposed to tho President of tho Unitod States for and in be
half of tho Mormon hierarchy (no matter how well conccalod that
fact may have been). And neither one of thum would take any step
which would antagonize tho Mormon hiernrcb'. Therefore, thero is
nothing loft but an appeal to tho Department at Washington.
Not the thoft of all tho land so for stolon in Utah from the
Government equals in enormity this flagrant violation of the condi
tion upon which tho Government granted its (the Government's)
property to tho uso of tho Mormon church. That grant was upon
oxplicit condition, tho explicit condition is violated; tho grant ac
cordingly fails; tho property, thcroforc, should bo restored to the
United States; and cvory good citizen should unito in a demand that
the Department of Justico take early proceedings to that end.

SEALING AND UNSEALING.
"Indoscribablo rot" is what a corre
spondent of Tho Tribune calls certain
mixed-up marriago ideas roduced to
practico within tho Mormon church.
Ho might havo Baid: "Blasphemous
profanation of a sacred ordinanco and
sacrilogious assumption of a Divine
right to join pcoplo in physical matri
mony throughout tho eternities!"
The caso quoted by the' correspondent
concerning which ho asks tho questions,
The Tribuno will leave for elucidation
by those eminent interpreters of the
code of multiplied marriago in the Mor
mon church tho Hon. Brigham H. Rob
erts and tho Hon. Charles W. Penrose,
both of whom know how to unseal tho
thing which has been sealed and then
seal it again, and both of whom know
how (always of course to their own
satisfaction) to mako earthly havoc of
a celestially ordained union in ordor
to secure an earthly spouse. On tho
general question of tho "sealing" or
the "binding on earth that it may bo
bound in heaven" so often and so glibly
quoted by the speakers for the church,
The Tribune presents this little recital
Many years ago a woman, who was
eomowhat whimsical in her matrimonial
moods, and had boon scaled and un
sealed two or three times, went to Presi
dent Brigham Young after both of her
former earthly and celestial husbands
were dead and said that the latest
"sealing" or "binding on earth that
it might be bound in heaven" was un
doubtedly a mistake she preferred the
other man, after all. Whereupon Brig
ham, who had his own wise way with
women, remarked to her: "Never
mind, sister, never mind I If any mis
takes have been made here the Lord
will set it all right in the hereaftor. "
The now reconciled multiplied widow
went her way in peace, and on her
deathbed related tho caso to her son,
with tho statement, that she was now
not quite 6uro that the latest sealing
was a mistake, that sho might chooso
to change over again, but that Brother
Brigham had mado it all right and
peaceful for her for eho was to have a
final guess when sho got to heaven.
The irreverent youth, however, as
soon as his mother was safely undor
tho sod, remarked: "Well, if the Lord
13 going to correct the mistakes of
earthly sealings in the hereafter, what
in the deuce is the reason for sealing
and binding the things of the here
after at all? Why not let thorn all
alone so that tho Lord will not have
any mistakes to undo?"
And from that day to this there have
been several skeptics in that young
man's family; and several people are
of opinion that the "sealing" for
the glory of God is much more likely
to be for the pleasure of the prophets.
LET US LAUGH.
The funniest thing in recent bucolic '
journalism is the discovery by some of
the Mormon country press in Idaho
that the enforcement of the State Con
stitution in its provision for a test oath
will disfranchise all faithful adherents
of the Mormon church.
If is funny not because the subject is
amusing, but because the discovory is
heralded with such an air of originality
such newness! Why, of course, its en
forcement will disfranchise Mormons;
that it what the provision was inserted
for. Senator Fred T. Dubois nnd othor
great men of Idaho of tho time of that
Constitution candidl' acknowledged to
the country that they had a hope that
tho Mormons would be fair in 'politics.
would consent to the determined segre
gation of church and Stato upon which
Idaho's population had sot its heart;
but that to insuro euch results it was
necessary to have tho absolute power
in tho Constitution and the peoplo of
tho Stato of Idaho to disfranchise all
Mormons if thor transgressed this po
litical holiness, and if they attempted
to destroy this political foundation of
That is exactly what tho provision
was inserted in tho Constitution for;
that i3 exactly what it is beiug used
And if tho subject wore not a com

announcement of tho character of the

THE "GOOD" TRUST.
Our pleasant, but hardly sprightly,
contemporary at Provo, tho Utah Coun
ty Democrat, puts tho following ques
tion: Can President Roosevelt or any other Re
publican mention a trust that can bo labeled
as a "good" or even n "docent" trust.
We do not . know that President
Roosevelt or any other Republican
would care to take up tho ques
tion precisely in tho way stated by our
Provo contemporary; but no doubt that
contemporary would find an easy an
swer to its own question in tho reply:
"The Mormon Church Trust." It no
doubt approves of that truBt, though it
istho wickedest, most crushing, and
most lawless trust that exists in the
United States. The managers of that
trust caro nothing whatever for law;
they aro not only careless of public
opinion, they are utterly contemptuous
Tho operations of that trust extend
into every man's business and home,
and dominate tho action, and even the
opinions, of every person within that
fold, who is absolutely obliged to abide
by the wishes of the trust under pain
of ruin in this world, threatened eternal
damnation in the next. If this trust
starts in business in any commu
nity or settlement, all persons are
warned to keep out of that business
there, on tho pain of boing on the high
road to apostasy and going to" hell; and
not only aro those coming evils held
over them in terrorem for the coming
life, but tho penalties in the present
life are 60 merciless and severe that
no ono dare face them. ' These penal
ties reach to business and social ostra
cism, with a relentless and malignant
cruelty that has often driven people in
sane who havo incurred these penalties,
and has driven out of Utah multitudes
of persons who were good citizens, and
whoso only offense was in incurring the
disploasure of the ruthless managers of
this malignant trust.
Not only does this trust control in
dividuals and business, making for it
self odious monopolies wherever it de
sires, but it controls the political and
civil affairs of the State, of tho coun
ties, and of tho cities, everywhere ex
cept in Salt Lako.
And yet this is what our Utah county
contemporary would undoubtedly call a
"good" and "decent" tmst. From this
wo conclude that its objection to tho
trusts that aro sn much complained of
in tho business world of tho United
States is merely because they do not go
far enough. They sop at ordinary busi
ness oppression, rapacities, and monopo
lies, and do not undertake to coerce
every one to their way of doing by
social penalties, by personal oppression,
and by the terror of threats of future
damnation, claiming to be able to put
these into effect.. Tho "good" and
"decent" trust is tho ono that takes
in overything in tho present life as
well a3 the- life to come. The odious
trust, according to our Utah county
contomporary, is the one that merely
undertakes to grusp and control a cer
tain line of temporal business, leaving
overything else out of the account. Tho
"good" and "decent" trust leaves out
nothing, either in this or the future
life. It is well to have theso matters
clearly set forth, so that, there will
be no misunderstanding in any one's
mind about what a "good" and "de
cont" trust is, and also ,i3 to the trust
which is neither "good" nor "de
cent." Tt must be a joy to those who enjoy
this "good" and "docent" trust to
know that it is supreme in Utah, and
that it. is getting strong footholds in
all fclje neighboring States; that it is
making, this year, a good stagger
toward compleio control in Idaho; that
it is allowed complacently to run Wyo
ming affairs to suit itself; that it is
dominant in Arizona, nnd making a fair
struggle in Nevada; that every onco in
n whilo it can turn things its own way
in Colorado, and is gotting a good foot
hold in Oregon. The "good" and "de
cent" trust, according to this Utah defi
nition, is tho real thing; all others aro
mere make-belioveH, a sort, of "as good
nB," which fall short of covering tho
field as complotely as the "good" and
"docent" trust always does whore it
has a chance, making a clean sweop.
BUSINESS AND TRADE.
The special Interest of tho week in
business circles has been divided between
tho rushing of tho Western Pacific rail
way construction work westward from
this city and tho advancement of tho
work at Garfiold In tho putting In of tho
smelter plant and reduction works thore.
The Western Pacific is getting tho end
of Its track pretty closo to what Is called
"the desert," a tract of about fifty mllea
broad, to cross which would bo very
hard work and almost impossible of con
struction In summer, but which wlllenot
bo so difficult onco the fall storms and
the sensonablo coolnoss begins. Tho track
Is now completed fifty miles west of the
city, and the work on tho dosert section
can begin almost any time. That work
will not be ospcclally heavy In Itself,
but on account of the dryness and tho
heat Jt Is alniont impossible to work
thoro during tho hot season. Tho push
ing of this road to a connection with tho
Nevada Northern will give speedy and a
reasonably direct access to tho great
mining operations at Ely, Cherry Creek
and that wholo groat mining region. Tho
opening of tho Nevada Northern from
Cobro toward Ely will be mado the occa
clon of a groat celebration on Saturday,
Septembor29th, which will bo participated
In by a largo number of peoplo from Salt
Lake, Ogden and tho rogion round about
In Nevada. It will bo a groat occasion
and will mark the realization of the
long-hoped-for railway communication to
and from that immensely rich mining
Tho plant3 at Garfield comprise an im
menso Bmeltor being constructed by tho
American Smelting company and tho
Guggenheims at a cost that will ap
proximate 53,000,000. A smelter city, com
prising a very largo number of cottagos
for the offlcos and for tho workmen Is being
constructed near by. Basldes, this side
of that plant proper, tho Utah Coppor
company and the Boston Consolidated
company aro constructing concentrating
plants whose product will be taken to
the smelter beyond for treatment.
In the mining field ihl3 year will no
doubt mark a new record for tho Stato.
Last year tho metal mining product of
Utah was just under thirty millions. This
yoar, it will, no doubt, exceed that figure,
with room for growth beyond In the
Tho agricultural operations of tho
Stato during tho year havo been .at the
maximum In product and profit. The
grain yield has been excellent, and fruits
were never bettor. The fact that Utah
took tho chief prize In the fruit exhibit
In Boise at tho Irrigation Congress
speaks volumes for the favorableness of
tho year In this line. The wool clip last
spring was very great, and brought an
enormous price. The Indications aro that
this will be fully as heavy and as profit
able, If not more so, the coming season.
In this city trade Is on an excellent
basis, both for strength and volume aa
well aB activity. Collections are good.
The Jobbing trade Is being constantly ex
tended as now roglons are opened to the
north and the westward. The new de
velopments of the mining regions about
Ely and Cherry Creek will add very
largely to the trade of this city. Industry
Is fully employed, and more laborers
could find work. Labor Is scarce and
wageB aro high.
The real estate market Ib in excellent
shape, with much activity, and prices
firmly held. Every ono recognizes that
an investment In Salt Lake real estate is
gilt-edged; It Is as good as money la the
bank, for this city is bound to be one
of the great centers of commerce and
population of this country. Thore Is no
rival possible for hundreds of mileB In
every direction. This Ib the natural, the
lneyltablo center for a wider and a richer
area than any other city can claim any
where. Building operations here are enormous
ly active. Tho demand for labor exhausts
tho supply, and for materials enhances
tho price and depletes tho market.
In the country at large tho movement
of crops adds to the railway congestion
and runs the railway earnings up during
the month of August 14.5 per cent hlEher
than last year. Trade and Industry are
enormously vigorous and active, and all
tho factories aro running at tho maximum
capacity. There are no labor troubles
and the Industrial, commercial and finan
cial situations could not be better than
the returns now show them to be. Busi
ness failures are below the average, and
the bank clearances total 20 per 'cent
higher than for the same week last year
In New York there Is a fictitious
scarcity of money, caused by the specu
lative demand In the buying of stocks
Tho public absorption of stocks has ben
very large, and this has caused a good
deal of wild speculation. Secretarv Shaw
warns ngalnst this, and he also notifies
the moneyed men that tho United States
depoaltB In the banks must not bo used
to oppress the market by fictitious oper
ations or for undue demands for interest
Everything is working to the advantage
of the people of the United States, and
tho present year will undoubtedly mark
, a new record In all Hubb of business.
Editor Tribune; While not deBlrlng to
quostion the right of people to bottove
as they chooBo In matters of religion I
wish to ask if some evil results may not
follow such case3 ob' the following, of
which particular cnae I have recent tier
A young man and young woman of this
city had been "keeping company" (or a
considerable time and had come to love
each other very dearly. When theyoune
fellow first proposed marriage the girl
burst Into tears, but would give no an
swer except that there was no question
as to her love. Not wishing to distress
hie Bweetheart further the lad lot the
matter drop, but continued hla attentions
Proposing again, after an Interval, the
young fellow experienced a similar re
ception of his advancoa and becamo much
disturbed nt the distress of ,tho young
woman. At length the motlior n( the
girl, having been appealed to by her
daughter, explained to the young man
that when was about 16 years
old r.ho had been "sealed" to a
young man of her acquaintance, now
doceased, and thnt this was the cause
of her tearfl.
Both theso young people are ot the
modern Mormon type, shunning polyg
amy but firmly believing in the "ordi
nances" of their church. But the human
in them and tho religion taught them
were at cross purposos; and In view of
their belief that the young woman will
belong to another hereafter (and Illus
trating the well-known selfishness of
true love), the once happy but now mis-J.
erable couple have parted ways In life.
And what, too, about tho young woman
who was sealed to a distinguished Baton
of a distinguished family after his death,
and who then wns marriod In earthly
(although called celesttal) marriage to a
brother of her dead celestial opouse to
rear up earthly seed who would be tho
progeny of the dead man In tho next
world; and who, when the second brother
died, married a third In order to make
sure on earth of belonging In the family
What about such mlxed-up cases, and
how aro they fixing the minds of tho
young peoplo with regard to marriago?
To me It soems like a hocua-pocus of
Inde'scrlbablo rot. Yours very truly,

NOBODY BUT FATHER.
Nobody knows tho money it take
To xeop tho home together;
Nobody knows of tho debt it makes.
Nobody knows but fitter.
Nobody's told that the boys need thooi
And girls' hit with a zosthex;
Nobody elso old clothes must choose.
Nobody only fathor.
Nobody hears that the coal and wood
And flour's out together;
Nobody olso must mako them food.
Nobody only father.
Nobody's band in the pocket goes
So often, wondering whother
Tb ore's any end to the wants of those
Dependent only father.
Nobody thinks where the monoy will come
To pay the bills that cither;
Nobody tools eo blue and glum;
Nobody only father.
Nobody tries so hard to lay
Up something for bad weather,
And runs behind, do what he may.
Nobody only father.
Nobody comes from the world's cruel storm
To meet dear ones who gather
Around with loving welcome warm.
Nobody does but father. v
Nobody knows of the homo life pure,
Watched over by a mother,
Whoro rest and bliss aro all secure.
Nobody can -but father.
Tho giants of old, their relics with awe.

The dinosaur ate his comestibles raw,
