SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, JULY 25, 1896. No 43. H
WILLIAM J. BRYAN,
OF NEBRASKA. '
OLD FOLKS' DAY.
C. R. Savage, Esq., in 1874,
twentr-two years ago, conceived the
idea of giving the Old Folks of
Utah (Utah the imperial and the
matchless new State o the inter
monntain region), a grand, free ex
cursion annually, and during all of
the intervening years, the old folks
of Utah have continued to look for
ward to the days on which these an
nnal outings would occurwithagreat
deal of pleasure, and with the hap
pr thought of being able to assem
ble together at least one day in the
year somewhere in these God
blessed valleys, and converse with
each other about the many and the
wonderful changes which they have
witnessed during the past forty
nine years here in Utah; and we
imagine that it must be a source of
infinite joy and pleasure to the old
folks to thus commingle together
and to meet their many old friends
on these occasions.
The Broad Ax was informed by
a member of the committee, to the
effect that the grand, free excur
sion to Ogden (the queen city of
the West), on July 16th, 1896, sur
possed and excelled all of the oth
ers heretofore given.
The committee on arrangements
consisted of the following well
known gentlemen: Bishop W. B.
Preston, Wm. Eddington, George
Goddard, .John Kirkman, Andrew
Jensen, C. R. Savage, W. L. Bind
er, B. S. Young, "Win. Naylor,
Bishop N. A. Empey.
All of the above named gentle
men deserve great credit for the
laborious work performed by each
of them, in arranging and perfect
ing all of the preliminary details
and in looking after the wants and
comforts of the old folks.
The first train consisted of thir
teen cars, and left the Rio Grand
Western depot promptly at 8:35 a.
m., and the second at 9 a. m. The
train ran through in one hour. A
representative of the Broad Ax
caught onto the hind car of the
first section, just as the train was
pulling out of the depot, bound for
Ogden. Somehow or other we lost
both of our badges, and we felt
like a lost sheep without the same.
We sought out George Goddard,
Esq., and tried to obtain a badge
from him, but he informed us that
all of the badges had been given
out, and the result was that we
were compelled to make the jour
ney without a badge.
On the journey to and from Og
den, the old folks and all others on
both trains, were served with lem
onade and cake by beautiful young
ladies. In passing, we cannot re
frain from mentioning the name of
the lady who so graciously served
the Broad Ax with refreshments.
We have had the pleasure of
meeting a great many "handsome
ladies in all parts' of Utah, bat we
are o the opinion that wrae of the
ladies which we have heretofore
met, excels Miss E. Ark, kte o
Lathenhan, London, Eaglaad, in
oeauty, nor in tay o tie oUwr
accomplishments which jaatsxallj
tend to make all ladies appear
handsome and beautiful. Miss
Axis has resided in this fair and
beautiful city of Zion for about
five weeks, and she is greatly in
love with the same.
President Wilford Woodruff in
passing through the cars, as other
elderly gentlemen, extended his
hand to us, and when we inquired
the name, the response came, "Wil
ford Woodruff." We were some
what embarrassed for a few mo
ments, and President Woodruff
perceiving this, he invited us to oc
cupy the seat opposite to him and
Mrs. Woodruff, which we did.
After being seated, he began to
converse with us on the various
topics of the day. President Wood
ruff is a very remarkable man. He
is in his eighty-ninth year, yet he
does not appear to be one day over
sixty. After being engaged in con
versation with him for a long time,
we finally came to the conclusion
that there is no purer or better
American than he. William E.
Gladstone is the Grand Old Man of
England, and Wilford Woodruff is
the Grand Old Man of America.
On arriving at Ogden, the old
folks were transported to Lester
Park, and they were made welcome
to the same by John A. Boyle,
Esq., chairman of the citizens' com
mittee. Chairman Boyle and the follow
ing gentlemen, John Watson, Wm.
Moyes, Heber Wright, G. H. Is
laub, Joseph Clark, H. W. Gwil
liams, J. D. Sullivan and many
others whose names we cannot re
call at present, were very attentive
to the old folks while they were in
The exercises in the park were
very interesting. The addresses of
President L. W. Shurtliff, Bishop
Wm. Naylor, George Goddard,
President Wilford Woodruff, Presi
dent Joseph F. Smith, Rev. C. F.
Richardson, Bishop Stratford, C.
R. Savage, C. W. Penrose; a native
of New Zealand, said something
about his country, but we could not
catch on to his language.
All of the speakers were well re
ceived by the five thousand people
who had assembled in the park.
Apostle Brigham Young pro
nounced the benediction.
The Mormon Battalion was the
leading attraction of the day. The
singing by the old folks' choir was
very fine. The music furnished by
the two brass bands was very grand
The sumptuous repast furnished by
the patriotic citizens of Ogden was
enjoyed by all who partook of it.
It filled our heart with joy and
delight to see the following mem
bers of our race mingling with the
old folks as brothers and sisters:
There was Isaac Manning, Esq.,
who is 81 years old; he lived with
Joseph Smith, and he helped to
build the Temple at Nauvoo, and
hehas been a member of the Church
for fifty-five ytrs. His sister,
Mrs. Jane James, has been a faith
ful member of the Church for a
great many years. Mr. Wesley
Taylor, Mr. Knox, and Mr. Harris,
are all very old gentlemen, and tney
are all faithful members of the
Homeward bound. The Irst sec
tion left Ogden at 5:80 and the
second at 6 p. m-
On the return trip the old folks'
choir passei threwgh the cars sing
jag We are boward bound,"
and when the trains arrived here,
the old folks were feeling gay.aad
very lively. President Woodruff
jumped off of the train without as
sistance, and all the rest of the old
folks did likewise.
"W J- Ridd, traveling passenger
agent, informed the Broad Ax that
the Rio Grand Western transported
1,470 persons to and from Ogden
without hitch or accident. The
street car companies of both cities
transported the old folks to and
from the depots free. And we are
of the opinion that it would be a
grand idea if all the churches
muuguuut luctuuiufjr nuuiuauupii
the custom of giving the old folks
a grand free excursion annually.
Thkbk are numerous reasons why
no one should lie about political
matters, any more than about pri
vate matters. In the first place, it
is very wicked; it is also poor poli
tics to try to deceive the people;
and it is quite humiliating to get
caught and have to own up, or else
tell a lot more trying to make the
first stand. In order to warn our
goldbug opponents, and to keep
them out of trouble, we would
kindly and freely advise them on a
few matters and give them a few
pointers. Do not tell the people
that there was but $8,000,000 of
silver coined in the United States
during a hundred years of free coin
age, it is not true.
Do not tell the people that the
balance of trade is against the
United States, for they will soon
find out better, and you will lose
their good opinion.
Do not tell the people that free
coinage will make a 50 cent dollar
and at the same time that it will
double the value of the silver
miner's product. This is contrary
to natural law and will not be be
lieved, unless you can prove that a
man can be good and wicked at the
Do not try to convince the people
that the Wall Street bankers are
laboring for the best interests of
the people. This may sound all
right, but the people will not be
Do not tell them that the hard
times and low prices are the result
of a Democratic tariff. They will
deny this and call on you for the
proof, and you cannot prove it.
Do not tell them that gold is the
money of the world. It is not
true. Gold is not the money of
any country, except when it is made
so by act of law and the stamp of
the government. In international
exchange it is weighed'on the scales
and sold as any other commodity,
and not by the stamp which is on
it. Therefore do not blunder into
Do not say that under free coin
age foreigners would pay us in sil
ver, while we would be compelled
to pay them in" gold. We are not
forced to buy of such people, but
many of them are forced to buy of
us. We are an independent, self
sustaining nation. See !
Do not tell the people that the
tariff is the main issue in this cam-
paign. it is waste oi time, ana
they will know you are lying. Even
if yon believe it yourself the people
will not have it that way.
Do not say that all the advocates
of the free 'and unlimited coinage
of silver, at a ratio of 16 to 1, are
cranks, anarchists and communists.
They will know better, as they them
selves belong to that class, and they
know they are no more anarchists
orcoaammuBis than were the great-
est reformers of earth. Christ
himself would be called an anarchist
for the same reasons. Washington
was esteemed a communist by the
goldbugs of his day; and Jefferson
would be a crank if livine now.
This kind of talk will only bring
opposition to your cause, and bring
contempt on your heads.
