NOT AN OLD FIGHT.
The Broad Ax and the Argus
have some very warlike anti-church
articles in their last issues. One
would almost think the old fight
was on by reading those papers.
Better stop it, boys, for while doing
n0 particular harm, such a fight
does the State no good. En
quirer. The above few lines exhibits the
fawning disposition of some men.
Rather than incur the displeasure
of a few potentates high in ecclesi
astical position, they would crisge
and bow to their masters, and lick
the hand that smites them Where
is the spirit of "'76?" Where is
the modern reformer who, like
Martin Luther, will stand up
against the slavery of the human
mind? He is not to he found in
the person of the man who says
"Better stop," "it. will do no
The conditions now confronting
us are new. It is not "the old
fight" it is a new contest, brought
on by a few men to strengthen
their temporal power.. Some of
the men who promulgated this
"new manifesto," had for years
been the, most active in the political
affairs of Utah; they are today the
capitalists of the Statej being en
gaged in mining, in power com
panies, in hanking, in sugar manu
factories, in co-operative mercan
tile institutions, in railroading, and
in any and every scheme whereby
they can heap up a fortune. They
take the stump in a political cam
paign, or enter into any of these
gigantic business affairs without let
or hindrance, and without asking
permission or "taking counsel"
from anyone, and yet they essay
to curb the worthy ambition of
their subordinates, by saying, "be
fore you do any of these things,
ask us." Is this not a new ques
tion, Brother Enquirer? The effort
of the pope or priest to obtain
temporal power, is not a newijues
tion inEurope, but to our knowledge
it was never before a live question in
Utah. The manifesto is presented to
the people for their ratification or
rejection, which on its face seems
fiiir enough; but whenever one of
the church officials dares to oppose
the same, he is at once disciplined
and ostracized as .an unworthy
member. Such conduct is tyranny
and oppression, and the adoption of
the manifestoes gained by methods
which would put to shame the bull
dozing of the Southernbrigadiers
over the colored people. Such a
submission is a burlesque on the
liberty of conscience; it is nn
Democratic, it is un-Republican, it
is un-American. And yet we are
told, we must not say a word for
fear of the "old fight." This is
no old fight; it is new and startling,
and we must know now-and .for
ever, whether or not we are to he
slaves or freemen. When trials
like this come to our land, some
may crawl into a cave and lie dor
mant until the battle is over, and
then re-appear and enjoy the bene
fit of the victory; but we admire
the man who will stand true and
firm amid the battle, and with the
courage of his convictions help to
win the fight of the people agaiast
he usurpers.. Let every a show

LIGHT IS BREAKING.
Light is beginning to break be
hind the clouds which 'have ob
scured the political sky of Utah for
the last few weeks.
Ever since the 7th day of April a
feeling of gloom and despondency
has overshadowed the new State of
Utah, occasioned by the ecclesiasti
cal edict, which in effect would take
from a majority of our citizens
their individuality and make them
mere tools in the hands of their
priestly manipulators. But the
past few days has demonstrated that
there are thousands of good and
true men in Utah who have not
and who will not bow the knee to
Baal. All honor to these brave
and noble men, who are raising
their voices in defense of their per
sonal freedom and Americanism 1
They are the hope of our civiliza
tion, present and future. Through
them, and by their effort alone, can
we expect to withstand the shock,
and sail into the harbor of peace
and prosperity. We do not want to
see the old church fight renewed;
it would only bring back buried
animosities, tearing and distracting
our bright prospects, and perhaps
ending in bloodshed and the estab
lishment of a provisional govern
ment. We have said all along that
the remedy must come from within
the dominant church of Utah, and
not from without This is why we
see the glow of light breaking in
upon us.from the north to the
south of our young commonwealth,
in the protests of the gallant men
of Utah, who today are saying to
the church leaders: "Thus far, but
no farther shalt thou come," in
taking from us the liberty of con
science guaranteed by the Constitu
tion and laws of the United States.
We are passing through a crucial
test of patriotism, and what we need
is mks who will stand firm as the
rock of ages. This is no party
question, but one of universal in
terest to all parties, creeds, sex and
races. Onward speed the good
work of saving Utah from desola
tion and anarchy 1
OLD ISSUE RESURRECTED.
Here is an extract from a speech
made-by Senator Ingalls in the U.
S. Senate over ten years ago. It
has probably been printed by every
populist newspaper-in Kansas three
years ago, but it will not hurt us to
read it once more, and realize how
nearly true the Senator's prophecy
is being enacted:
"We cannot disguise the truth
th'at we are on the verge of an im
pending revolution. Old issues are
dead. The people are arraying
themselves on one side or the other
of a portentious contest. On the
one side is capital, formidably in
trenched in privilege, arrogant from
continual triumph, conservative, te
nacious of old theories, demanding
new concessions, enriched by do
mestic levy and foreign commerce,
and struggling to adjust values to
standard. On the other is labor,
asking for employment, striving to
develop domestic industries, bat
tling with the forces of nature and
subduing the wilderness. Labor

galls, and yet with the McKinley
boom will come the old base drum
of protection, and thss boomers
will make enough noise on the old
instrument to drown the cries of
poverty and hush the demands of
the people for bread. The word
"protection" will be the rallying
cry; in the East it is "protection
and sound money;" in the West it
is "protection and free silver." The
mania is like an infectious disease,
which is borne an the very winds
that sweep over the land. The pur
pose is to divert attention from the
monetary question, the real and
only issue in which the people are
concerned. This question over
shadows protection as much as the
light of the sun is brighter than the
phosphorescent glow of a piece of
THE STAR OF SILVER IS
From all indications in sight the
cause of "free silver" is stronger,
and the prospects of winning at the
Chicago Convention is growing
brighter every day. The zeal and
earnestness of the gold standard
men, including the President and
his cuckoos, in striving to allay the
growing sentiment for the money
of the Constitution, plainly exhibits
the desperate situation of these
Shylocks. Heretofore they have
been indulging in a graveyard
whistle, giving out the word that
the silver craze was dead; but they
have suddenly discovered that a vast
majority of the voters in the Dem
ocratic party are fully alive, and are
determined to make the financial
question the prime issue in the com
ing campaign; hence the goldites
are beginning to wage a fight to
capture delegates in doubtful States.
The Administration and its allies
are so deeply interested in their
scheme to perpetuate the gold
standard, that they would rather
see the country turned over to the
Republicans than that the silver
cause should triumph. In other
words, the gold men are getting so
desperate that the people are be
ginning to see the importance of
taking a decided stand on the ques
tion. The use of money with which
to purchase delegates will be their
next move; that being about the
only argument or hope left them.

WE DON'T BELIEVE THEM.
Fkom all the rumors flying thick
and fast in mining circles, and es
pecially in Utah, one unaccus
tomed to such things would believe
that there was going to be such a
vast amount of gold taken from the
bowels of the earth that the yellow
metal would become a drag and
would soon be demonetized. Some
of the free silver advocates have
been proping up their hopes on this
event The Broad Ax takes no
stock in such a theory; as it is a
well known truth that as soon as
the cold is mined from the hills t
passes into the pockets of the pi a
tocrats, beakers, aad Shylocks, aad
before the people get aay o the
gold it has to be mined again; and
it takes more hard work; expense
and skill to get it out of the clutches
of those fellows than it did to get
it out of the mountains. No cyan
ide, electrical, or smelting process
will ever succeed in extracting the
yellow stuff from their pockets as
long as we have protection, monop
oly, trusts and combines made legal
by the Government to make the
rich richer, and the poor poorer.
There should be a little mining done
at the ballot box.
