Concerning the Mormon
A History of the Obnoxi
The Democracy of Maricopa
County Wanted It Passed.
The True Inwardness of tho Legis
lation Which Made It
Joii.nbto.sk I'kkcinct, Nov. 1.
Editor Hkixiilican. I noticed in
dingt Moter Zulick's speech as
Lyubed in the Uazetto that the Rentle
mn from Ne' Jeraov takes great credit
tobim"" liI"' ''"" DmoiTBi'y fur (air
delin8 w,lM lnB M,,r,uonb l naa 'ten
lieen eald umt "chickens come homo to
joost" nd I" tins instance it looks to
me though the hole hen coop had
returned, for if there ever was n record
thtt absolutely indefensible it is
the record oi ine wemucrauu party in
doling w itn l -i test oath question in
relation to tho Mormon people.
Assertion in political times must be
(jien with due caution. Men am
bitious to eerve their party and them
selves a Mr. Zullck certainly is, some
times aeeert that which will not stand
th lisbt of truth. F rtunately for the
Republican party and tho cause of
troth and justice Mr. Zulick's speech
is t varian'e with the record?. That
the outrageous test oath law was
enacted is but too true, but that it was
enacted by the Republican party is a
falsehood too slarint! to bo permitted to
jonncnalleiiged. Let us see; in march
ing the records of the Thirteenth legis
lature e find that the Democratic and
Republican parties were equally divided,
that is a tio in both houses and no
partisan leeialation could possibly be
enacted had either party voted its
politics straight. Council bill number
73is the one containing tho test oath.
This measure was introduced in the
council by Mover of Apachu county,
a man that was elected from a Demo
cratic couuty as a non partisan. The
record of this bill is to be found on
pa;e CCS of the journals of tho Thir
teenth legislature and was later re
ported favorably by a unanimous vote
of the judiciary committee. Thus it
Till be seen that a committee of Demo
crats and Republicans equally divided,
recommended tho passage of this
obnoxious test oath law. If this was a
Republican measure introduced for
partisan purposes, a measure that was
objectionable to the Democrocy of the
territory, why in common sense and
fairness did'nt some Democrat rieo in
bis seat in tho council and lift his
voice against its passage.
I know why and tho record will bear
me out in the atsertion that the Demo
cracy of Maricopa county wanted
trie measure paseed. Mr. Zulick in
hi) wrathful indignation will declare
that this is false. Well let us see.
When the test oath bill came to the
council in the usual form, R. 1). Todd
one of Maricopa's leading Democrats
and a representative from this county
wai so fearful of delay that ho moved
the suspension of tho rules that this
un-American, this unjust measure might
be speedily enacted, and further, when
the bill was placed on its final passage
every Democrat in the legislature tho
gentleman from Maricopa included
voted for its passage. So well pleased
was the democracy of Maricopa couuty
ith Mr. Todd's action that they made
him chairman of the Marlcoua county
Democratic central committee. Yet
Mr. Zuhck has the audacity to pub
licly proclaim that the Democracy are
the only true friends of tho Mormons.
Facts are stubborn things and I want
to ask Mr. Zulick a few questions.
When that test oath bill was pending,
when it was before the law-making
body of Vrizona, the purpose of
hich was to deprive American citizens
oi their right of franchise, to fasten the
shackles of serfdom upon honest toiling
citizens, why did not the Democracy of
Maricopa county, why did not some
individual member of that party rnise
voice against its passaeo. Why, I
repeat, when the liberties of good citi
zens were in jeopardy, when tho names
ol 1,200 men who help to swell the
t roll of Arizona and who toiled in
'he wilderness and on the desert, were
about to be reduced by legislative
enactment to tho level of tho i'apago,
Jhy was it that not n Democrat In
Maricopa county or even in nil Ari
wn&canio forward to protest against
this barbarous and iniquitous measure.
Like trie wail of tho lonely mariner
Jfrerked in iiild-oceitti far from human
habitation, these questions will re
gain unanswered. Now let up go a
'We further in the record, the Thir
teenth legislature enacted tho test oath
assisted and aided by tho Democrats
J" Maricopa county and the following
egisliittue repealed it and wo desire
w give Mr. Zullck credit for urging its
"peal in his message, yet horo is tho
ffcr' t'10 Democratic members of
lne Thirteenth legislature from Mari

fjje passage of the test oath bill while
Jie Republican members of the Four
teenth legislature from Maricopa
county cjnsistlngof Jon Y. T. Smith
nVf. L. II. Goodrich voted and
worked for tho repeal of this hateful
na disloyal test oath. Now in all
uuor and fairness which party in
aricopa county stands today as the
irieriujo! the Mormon peoplo?

of political demagogues wns taken lrom
them by and witli jour consent and
Now, a fow more words and I am
done. The Zulick speech was delivered
to prejudice tho people of Mesa against
their friends and neighbors; it was
delivered to prejudice honest and fair
minded men ngainst those who have
stood liko a wall between tyranny, test
oaths, and other injustices to the Mor
mon peoplo of Arizona.
What Democrat, may I ask, has ever
been a inoro loyal, moro nblo and a
truer and consistent friend of tho Mor
mons than Judgo Webster Street ?
When prejudice-, hate and political
demogogury rau rife in tho Republican
territorial convention, what voice was
raised higher, what arguments more
powerful, what Boutimeuts more manly
and fur-reaching than those of Judge
Street in the defense of justieo to a law
Jerry Millay and Webster Street
scattered liko chaff tho arguments of
Judgo Wright of Tucson against the
Mormons and not only honored them
selves by their manly, honest course,
but represented tho loyal sentiment of
every honest man in Arizona. Yet
Mr. ulick askB tho people of Mesa to
repay the fidelity, tho friendship of
yeara of these people by casting their
votes against friends.
He asks them to help defeat ono of
Arizona's ublest and best citizens, a
man that has been tried and found tiue,
a man that never trailed his banner in
tho mire of prejudice to satisfy the
edicts of his own party. This is the
man that Mr. Zullck asks tho citizens
of Mesa to repudiate at the polls. They
wont do it. They are not built on that
plan, for in my long acquaintance with
the people of that section I havo found
them staunch and true, never wavering
in their fealty to a friend, and when the
8th oi November comes around I feel
that tho loyal men of Mesa who never
repaid friendship and kindness with a
blow, will cast their votes for Judge
What is true of Webster Street is also
true of J. Y. T. Smith, J. A. Marshall,
O. L. Pease and other Republicans.
These men will not only deal honest
ly with tho people of Alcsa, but would
tight to the death any attempt to dis
criminate nuninst them by legislation.
Tho Democracy aro always friends of the
Mormons when they wunt their votes,
but when Mesa offered ono of her best
men and one of Arizonn's best citizens,
O. R. Hakes, for the office of supervisor,
how then did they show their grat
itude ? I will tell you, they put their
knifo in their hoot lee and sallied forth
to scalp Mr. Hakes as they did before
tho Hon. 11. (J. Rogers, another good
and honorable man of Mesa.
Now, I repeat that the "chickens
have come homo to roost." Another
election is nt hand and the Mormon
vote is needed and the m on who wore
their shoe boles off in their travels to
slaughter C. R. Hakes and fl. (J. Rogers
are needing votes, hence Zulick's un
truthful appenl to these people.
In closing I wish to vay that had it
not been for the Republican votes cast
for 0. R. Hakes two years ago he would
not have received 400 otts.
J. L. U. Alexander, Mr. Zulick's
bosom friend, then had knife in baud,
now he ib chairman of the Democratic
county committee and asking the Mor
mons to vote as he dictates, as he is
Justice sometimes slumbers and dem
agog ury Bometijne provails, yet I feel
that no true-hearted Mormon with the
record before him will danco to the
music of Zulick and Alexander and vote
to defeat men that have always been
true to their every interest.
