The Tribune is howling mad over
Judge Judd's speech in the conven
tion. If you throw a rock into a
pack of dogs, and one comes out
yelping, you can bet it is the one
that got hit. Judge Jndd "de

Hon. P W. Nklson occupied a
front seat during the Durham and
Lindell debate on last Wednesday
night, and while Bro. Lindell was
waving the "bloody shirt," he
roared like a mad bull, but the next
morning he was out with one of
our Democratic candidates trying
to hold him up for money. We
have our boundless contempt for
such men; they will steal pennies
from dead men's eyes.

Wednesday night, at the Tunnel,
before a very fair audience. It is
to be regretted that an admission

Mr. Lindell, a college graduate
from the state of Virginia, spent
the greater part of his time in
abasing the southern people, and
waving that old, decayed under
garment, the "bloody shirt." Such
ingratitude is seldom witnessed
from a colored man who has re
ceived so much from the hands of
his native state.
The smallness and contemptible
bias of Chairman Geo. M. Cannon,
was exhibited by his interruptions
and efforts to encourage disorder
while Mr. Durham was speaking.
This fact disgusted even the Repub
licans, being in such contrast with
the spirit of fairness shown by

The B&oad Ax was a thorn in the
flesh of Bro. Lindell, judging from

THE GREAT CONVENTION.
Last Tuesday was an eventful
day for Utah. Another page was
added to the history of our people,
which will record their struggle
for the- liberty of human rights.
Once again have the people spokes,
and their voice will bring gladness
to thousands of inter-mountain
homes, and at the same time bring
dismay and confusion to- those who
would, turn back the wheels of
progress, and establish a. theocracy
upon the soil of this infant state.

The eloquent and impressive ad
dress of Judge Powers, chairman
of the State committee, was re
ceived with approving applause;
but when-the letter of Hon. Moses
Thatcher was read, wherein he de
clared his purpose to stand by his
party and the people of Utah, the
convention went wild; they arose
to tkeir feet, and cheer after cheer
went through the rafters of the
theatre building for several min
utes. The speeches of Fisher Harris,
Judge King, Judge Judd and
others, struck a responsive chord
in the hearts of the audience, and
helped to prepare the minds of the
members of the convention for the
ordeal through which they earnestly
emerged. The address is a clear,
plain and logical appeal to the
honor and patriotism of the voters
of Utah. Every man and woman
in the territory should read it care
fully. It is now a part of the
history of our country, and will
become a document of enlighten
ment to the whole people.
The meeting of these patriots
was an epoch jn the history of this
people, that will mark their upward
march in the interest of human
rights. It was a great day; a day
of poMtical Pentecost. More people
were made to breathe the true
spirit of American patriotism, and
educated in the line of duty, in less
time than ever before in our his
tory. Everyone present will go
home feeling invigorated and in
spired, and will become a mission
ary in the cause of the liberty of
conscience, and the absolute divorce
ment of church and state.
All honor to the brave men and
women of Utah, who have thus de
tied the usurpations of the modern
King John, and again proclaimed
the magna charia of Americanism.
