MB. FOWLER'S OPPOSITION.
The protest of Representative Charles
N. Fowler against, the issue of the
$50,000,000 Panama canal bonds and
the $100,000,000 in Treasury certifi
cates is woll worth heeding. lie is nat
urally reluctant to oppope his party
administration, but ho sees such grave
evils in tho proposed issues that ho
feels impelled to speak.
Mr. Fowler is chairman of thellouso
Committco on Bnnking and Currency,
and is the author of a bill for the relief
of our money strictures, through tho
issuo of temporary or emergency cur
rency, which would bo rctirod auto
matical' under a tax which would en
sure its withdrawal wheu the pinch
which called for its outputting was
oyer. Ho is a great, expert on banking
and finance as applied to the supply
and use of coin and currency. When
he goes so far as to run counter to tho
Administration and to express the un
qualified opinion that its proposed
measures of relief are harmful and tho
hope that neither the Panama bonds
nor tho Treasury certificates will be
issued, he must feel strongly on tho
subject, and be confident that he is
It is noteworthy that the great finan
cial institutions and financiers of tho
East have not welcomed the Adminis
tration 's programme as it was supposed
that thoy would do. It is to be noted,
too, that tho proposod issues did not
bring the relief that it was supposed
tho mere announcement of them would
do. Salt Lako's banking men, too, havo
proved entirely lacking in enthusiasm
over tho proposed issues as a remedy
for the monoy stringency.
Representative Fowler evidently con-J
siders that the bankers and financiers
in Now York were working out the
problem satisfactorily in their own
way, and that they had tho situation
well in hand before the Government
announced its issues; and that this ac
tion of the Government unsettled things
again and hindered the solution that
tvn c rrifl- I
Wo shpuld say that he is likely to be
in tho right of it, and that the Gov
ernment action, from which so much
was hoped, has fallen fiat. It's a pity,
too; for at this distance it looked
promising. It seems likefo- that the
visit of John Pierpont Morgan to the
President, of tho purport of which
nothing could be learned, had relation
to these proposed Government issues,
and that the groat financier advised
against putting out either the bonds or
the certificates. This would seem so
from the fact that Ropresentativo Fow
ler is so outspoken: ho probably would
not be so were he not assured that the
great bankers and financiers would sup
port his views; or that he was merely
giving public voice to their sentiments,
which amounts to tho same thing.
A TRAGIO ARTICLE.
We believe In being honest, true,
chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and In dolnp
good to all men.
One may not be so superstitious as
to believe in the fatality of numbers,
but the thirteenth article of the Mor
mon faith, as it is presented to the
i world, seems to be the most tragic
i of all. Considering the matter in the
.light of the actualities, description of
which was made under oath by the
chief exemplar of the effect following
a profession of tho belief quoted, the
aspect is most grucsomely inconsistent.
Concerning the matter of honesty,
Joseph F. Smith will not deuy that he
purloins from his following large sums
of money annually, without inakiug any
return thereon, aud refusing even the
poor satisfaction of telling his victims
how he illegitimately squanders their
In respect to the belief that men
should be true, there is the fact that
Mr. Smith has announced in the high
est pulpit of the greatest Mormon
synagogue that he purposely lied while
under his solemn oath, giving as an
excuse bi3 desire to escape some imagin
ary "traps" that he concluded had
been set for him by his "enemies."
These "enemies," as he calls them,
were United States Senators among
the highest, representatives of the Gov
ernment of this great Nation. His con
fession respecting bis falsifying not
only brands him as a despiscr of truth
in utterance, but marks him as being
untrue to his country, untrue to his
people, untrue to his church, and untrue
to his religion.
Chastity, too, is foreign to this par-
; ticular Smith makeup. Wo have no need
to go outside of the Smith word itself
to show that the charge which we
make is absolutely true. He confesses
that he is living a life of unchaslity;
that he is the father of manj' children
to whom, unfortunately for the inno
cents, neither his, owu church nor the
State can grant tho rights of legiti
macy. And to render his unclcaiilincss
j the more brazen and publicly injurious,
he tells us that he has not the slightest
iutention to mend his grofiFly evil ways.
Ife sets his pernicious example (the
more vindictive because of his assump
tion of highest divine authority) before
the young of his following, for their
surreptitious emulation. His immoral
spume is disgustingly spread upon tho
entire community, which hitherto has
been powerless to fond off hip cruel in
sults. If any fair-minded Mormon can
reconcile tho Smith practice with the
pretended Smith belief in this respect,
The Tribune would foel grateful for a
request from him for space in which
to exploit his views.
It would bo extremely difficult to
find in the church leadership tho benev
olence which thoy piously advocate.
S.urcly no such namo can be given to
tho institution -which picks tho pockets
of men during their years of produc
tive ability, and then casta them into
tho public almshouse when feebleness
attacks their woariod bodies. No such
cruolly shameful condition exists in the
midst, of any other religious organiza
tion in tho whole world. To those who
understand what arc the actualities, the
hierarchical profession of belief in be
nevolence is most absurd, nnd pninfully
embarrassing to even nn "outsider."
Pretended virtue is a mockery in the
sight of God, when ntterod by such
men as the immeasurably bogus prophet
of tho Mormon church. Having open
ly confessed his own black unvirtue,
tho Smith avowal of adherence to the
principle becomes a moro temptation
of the wrath of the Almighty. As ex
emplified in his life, the church leader,
ship hns lost nil remembrance of vir.
tue; thoy wallow in sin and disgrace,
and exclaim, "Sec how virtuous we
Finally, these frauds exert over their
following tho most pitiless tyranny,
and yet profess to believe in "doing
good to all men." Tn act, example,
teaching and prayer, the hierarchical
slanderers of tho Crucified One do noth
ing but harm to all mankind; their ef
fort is dirocted toward evil, and their
crowning delight is in vandalistic raid
ing of the public morals.
Of a truth, the saints aro finding that
tho "everlasting gospel" which they
embraced upon conversion to tho "pro
tended "articles of faith" of tho spuri
ons prophets, and for which they havo
endured so much, is not at all tho faith
of their "divinely-inspired" leaders.
Belief finds no recognition in practice;
and, un 'ortunatcly for the poor dupes,
the disastrous ultimate is not far in
advanco of the present time, unless a
complete reformation shall set in.
But even in eveut of possible disrup
tion, tho prophetic marauders will still
profit; for thc3' have at their personal
:ommand tho. proceeds of their vast
robberies, aud they can set. themselves
up in luxury while their victims occupy
themselves in clutching tho treasure
EVIL TRIUMPHS OVER GOOD.
Mormoniam is In the world for the
world's good. Teaching truth. Inculcat
ing moralitj. fruardlng- tho purity of the
homo, honoring authority and Kovern
ment. fostering education, and rxaltlnp
man and woman, our religion denounces
' crime, nnd Is a foe to tyrannv In everv
; form Mormonlsm seeks to uplift, not to
I destroy society. She Joins hands with the
civilization of the ape.
The foregoing is taken from the
"Declaration" of the first presidency
j of tho Mormon church which was
I adopted at the last April conference
I of that. body. As Mormon ism was orig
inally presented to the world, its aims
and objects aro optimistically but
not unfair- described in tho above with
measurable accurac-. But since the
time of its first inception there have
been some changes which enn not be
said to have benefited the cause. Be
sides, there is a vast difference between
j the professions which arc taught aud
j the practices which are fostered under
i the guise of MormoniEin. Taking that
pronouncement of the firsi presidency
for it. and the stranger to facts as they
exist here might possibly be led to re
gard the church as an institution of
high ideals and of correspondingly ex
alted expression in practice.
There is no disposition here to quar
rel with Mornionism. As wc previously
remarked, the simple principles which
were originally presented would seem
to have been capable of human service;
ihwurtod and twisted as they were. But
in common with those promulgated by
the Christian churches of the world,
they were possible of interpretation
that could uplift mankind to greater
heights of reverence for sacred things,
especially in so far as thc- were in no
wise different from the teachings of
other accepted denominations. But it
is sharply significant that wherein the
Mormon teachings wore in conflict with
Christianity, aud wherein they have
subsequently been made to come into
opposition to Christian teaching, is
found the seal of the whole trouble,
No set of principles is of value or of
unworth, except, as these professions arc
visibly expressed in the acts of an indi
vidual or of a body of individuals.
Therefore, in order to arrive at an csti
; mate of the worth of the priuciples
professed, the investigator must turn to
such demonstration of their practical
j results as may be available lo his in
spection. In this country we are proud
tohonor the President of the United
Stales with the credit of being the fore
most cimon of the Nation. And it
may be truthfully said that, notwith
standing certain divergences in the pre
cise nature of given policies, the men
who have occupied the highest place
of trust in 'the gift of the most sub
lime Nation on earth have worn their
honors well and have justified the con
fidence which has been placed in them
by a sovereign people.
Now, let us understand that the Mor
mon church is the expressed demonstra- i
tion of what is Known as Mormonism.
According to the peculiar laws ;?nd
ordinances which arc held to govern
that organisation, the church is in real
ity composed of twenty-six men who
are designated as the general authori
ties. The acts of thi church arc con
fined to the sole direction of these men.
Their power is absolute over the body.
They formulate the public pronounce
ments of the church; the- proscribe the
nature of the church attitude toward
the State and the Nation; they defi
uitely fix the character of the conduct
of lenders and the followers alike; they
impose taxes for the purpose of en
forcing their judgments in these re
spects. The rank and f lo of the Mor
mon people have no word in decision as
to these things. This, of course, 1b
denied by the general authorities; but
history proves their- denial to be. false,
as will bo readily perceived in the fact
that since tho church began Its career
tho people have merely had the conclu
sions of tho leaders read or recited to
them in conference, and have then sim
ply (and in perfect docility of spirit)
raised their hands in confirmation. And
whenever objection (probably thrice in
all history) lias been raised, the ob
jector has been ejected or otherwise
Presiding over the general authorities
is a man who is provided with the title
of prophet, seer, and revelator. Ho is
declared to bo iho personal representa
tive on earth of the Almighty in heaven
a pretenso that is not even suspected
of anyjnan who ever hold tho office of
President of tho United States. His
word is declared to bo as the word of
tho Lord. Naturally, therefore, wo
may designate him to bo the foremost
citizen in this kingdom of God on
earth, as the church calls itself and its
Look you now to this chief citizen of
the Mormon church; examine into -his
daily practical demonstration of the re
sults of Mormonism; noto his life and
see what Mormonism has produced in'
this highest exemplar of the cult living
today. So that, you ma' not do to him
persoual injustice, and in order that
Mormonism shall not bo held responsi
ble for suppositious conditions in tho
so-called prophet's career, wc ask you
to taKo his own testimony for it. As
recorded before the wholo world, it is
to the effect that ho is not in tho world
for tho world 's good, because he incul
cates evil by living an evil life; that ho
I does not teach truth, for tho reason that
he believes it is right to utter false
hood lo deceive his "enemies;" that he
docs not- teach moralitj-, because he is
personally immoral; that ho does not
guard the purit)- of the home, iu that
ho possesses several families: that ho
does not honor authority nnd govern
ment, for the reason that he constantly
lives in defiance of the one and seeks
to overthrow the other; thai ho docs not
foster education, because his aim is. to
confine the teaching of tho youth of his
people to the narrow limits of purely
ecclesiastical limitations, and these
evil; that he does not exalt man and
woman, simplv on nccount of the fact
that ho considers all humanity to bo his
inferiors (ho being singled out from
among them all as practically the com
panion of the gods); that he does not
denounco crime, because he is self-confessedly
guilty of crime; that he is not
a foe to tyranny, for he is a tyrant;
that he docs not sock to uplift, because
a lawbreaker can bo engaged in no
such pursuit; that he is attempting to
deslroj society' by living a life which
aims a most vicious blow at society's j
very foundation; that he does not joiu i
hands with the civilization of the age,
for the reason that ho has, duriug all
of his maturity, sought to set up and
cultivate a recrudescence of ancient i
Mormonism is a dead let i or. except as
it is represented in the demonstrable I
attitude of the church which promotes
it; and the position of the church which
inculcates Mormonism is most charac
teristically portrayed in the personal
acts of its foremost member and offi
cial its supreme head.
So you will be amply justified by all
logic and modern economic policy if
you substitute, in the April "Docclara
tion," the word "church" for the word
"Mormonism," then hold that Joseph
F. Smith is the personification of the
church (nnd consequently 'Mormonism),
and then judge that in the whole mess
you find nothing but hypocrisy, jmposi
tiou, deception, aud rankest fraud.

cure It Is to coin sliver and plenty of it
just as France does.
The point wo want to make Is. how
ever, with silver being produced at the
rate of only eight ounces to one of gold,
thero Is no logical reason why there
should not be free coinage at this time.
And free coinage would solvo tho finan

CLOSING OF BINGHAM SMELTER.
The closing of the smoltcr at Bingham
has no connection with the monetary
condition of tho country, although It will
have a llattenlng Influence on tho opera
tion of copper mines. The suspension Is
based on a decision of the United States
court of appeals, which ruled that the
retching of poisonous vapors was detri
mental to the farming Interests of the
vicinity. It Is the outcome of a long
pending suit that will entail more disas
trous results to tho plaintiffs than to the
defendant corporation Tho Smelting
trust can readily transfer its business to
other points without feeling tho effects
of competition. For Instance, in the
present case the smelter will shift the
tonnage to the plant at Garfield, which
has a capacity large enough to care for
all the 6re3 that have been going to
Bingham. " , The
smelters aro gradually bolng driven out
to the desert, where there Is neither
tree nor shrub lo destroy. Like the
Indian, thev have to keep moving west
ward until they halt on the barren lands
where Nature seems to have provided a I
resting place where the volatilization of I
arsenic and sulphur will not destroy the
charm of God's handiwork. Science has
sLrugglcd with this great question, but
chemists have been baffled at every turn
where thev tried to trap the dangerous
fumes and resolve the elements Into a
merchantable commodity Fortunes have
been expended In this direction, but all
efforts to retain the chemical constitu
ents after release from the ores have
been thwarted. Nevada may yet aspire
to be the great smelting State o the

WAY TO CREATE A PANIC, t
Coour d'Alene Press.
The best way to Injure business and
create a panic is for everyone to begin
to crv panic, panic. The facts are that
there" is no panic outside of Wall street
and speculative circles, To frighten peo
ple by a cry of panic Is just what will
help 11 along, and It is not buslnoss nor
good pollcv to do so. Don't be a pes
simist; be an optimist; look on the bright
side of things: pass down the street of
smiles Instead of traveling down the
street of slgh3. If business men cry panic
and hard vimes they may expect the peo
ple to adopt the same methods. Tho
panic now exisl3 In name only, and no
one is justified In jeopardizing the pros
perity of the people by raising a false
QUEER WAYS IN THE WEST.
Queer ways some people have some
times of doing things. Last spring. Just
prior to Iho opening of the Mllner town
sito and tho M.OOO acres of Carey land
on the north side of tho river, a num
ber of men and teams were employed and
set to work grading on the Mllner end
of the Mllner-Gooding electric railroad,
and on tho day of the opening the said
men and teams were making tho dlrl lly
to beat thf band, and tho sight was glo
rious to behold, and town lots and Carey
lands went like hot cakes to tho un
sophisticated greenles who were then be
ing treated to their first teeth pruning.
But It worked well, and after the sale
the men and teani3 were laid off, the
dust of the diggers settled, the sky be
came unclouded and serenltj once more
pervaded around and about the rocky
cliffs of "Milner-by-tho-dam."
The scene Is today bolng enacted over
again, the only difference being in tho
place, the stage background and the play
manager, the affable Reed staging and
managing the first performance with the
roaring, charging Snake nnd the great
Mllner dnm for backgrounds: in the play
that Is on today beautiful Holds of al
falfa and atatcly poplars afford brilliant
stago settings, the smiling.' happy-go-lucky
Barber appears as manager, and
the place, Goofllng. Tlc man and the
team and the scraper are all there, and

to charge more for hauling freight and
