ONLY A DYING REMEDY OF POLY
GAMY. The following from the Denvei
Post of November 2 may be of Inter
est to readers of Truth:
, "Senator Reed Smoot of Utah rep-
" resents all the principles Inculcatea
In tho National Mothers' club, yet tho
members of that organization teach
ing tho purity of the home with one
hand, deliberately brush aside one of
the purest men that ever lived, with
the other hand."
Thus did John P. Mealdn, tho Salt
Lake City lecturer and dramatic read
er, criticise the . National Mothers'
club for Its decision to send a petition
with 2,000,000 signatures to President
Roosevelt and congress, protesting
against the seating of Senator Smoot.
Mr. Meakln, with his wife and son,
is passing through Denver on his way
' homo 'from the east where ho has
been on an extended lecturo tour. Ho
Is tho guest of George B. Fisher while
in tho city.
"I am not a Mormon, and have no
interest in that church, but my blood
boiled when I read of this latest act
on the part of tho Mothers' congress.
"Tho Mormons come nearer to be
ing Christians than many of those
who profess to follow the footsteps of
the Nazarene," continued Mr. Meakln.
"I have known Reed Smoot from
boyhood In fact was raised with him
and therefore know whereof I speak
when I declare he is clean. He has
never been a polygamist, nor does he
believe In polygamy; ho has never
broken a national, state or moral law.
It is impossible to find a cleaner man
than Reed Smoot. Ho never smoked
a cigar or used tobacco in any form;
never tasted whisky or beer, and
never played cards or gambled at any
"Ho Is married to a charming wo
man, a daughter of Horace Eldredge,
who was one of tho pioneer business
men of Utah. Of this union Mr. Smoot
has six children, all types of Intellec
"Mr. Smoot Is a vigorous young
business man and is Interested in
nearly overy enterprise or industry in
tho state of Utah."
As to tho practice of polygamy, Mr.
Meakln said: "There is simply a dy
ing remnant of polygamy now in Utah
and surrounding states. This com
prises about 500 old men and women
who wont into tho polygamous rela
tionship previous to 1890. To illus
trate: there are In Salt Lako City ax
tho present time just seventy-four old
people who aro in polygamy. Two of
these aro over 80 years old; iifty
eight aro over GO years old and four
teen aro over 50 years of age. SInco
the manifesto was issued and amnesty
granted sixteen years ago, two-thirds
of tho people who were In polygamy
have passed away. In another ilfteen
or twenty years they will all have
W died a natural death.
"Since tho present president, Jo
seph F. Smith, has been in power, tho
church has not dabbled in politics nt
all. It Is duo to tho credit of Presi
dent Smith that that church has been
divorced from politics."
