I a TRUTH
I some little time and telling thc-usual
I blood and thunder falsehoods to in-
jure and east reproach upon 'Utah
l Dr. Paden succeeded in getting the
H following resolutions passed:
B "Resolved, That the Presbyterian
H Ministers' Association of Philadelphia
H express its profound appreciation ot
H the efforts of Rev. Dr. Paden to save
M our country from the disgrace of re
s' taining in the United States Senate
H, an apostle of Monncnism. with .its
HI blasphemy of God and its defiance of
Hj the laws of the country."
' The word "blasphemy" was inscrt
H cd because of the testimony of Dr.
H Paden, who stated that he once heard
H the head of the Mormon church pound
H with his hand the Hook of Mormons
H and exclaim, "I want our enemies to
H know that wc can make a Bible as
H good as theirs.''
HJ It is not surprising that these I'res-
HJ byterian preachers would pass a reso-
HJ lution to persecute anyone who does
not believe in infant damnation, forc
HJ ordination, predestination, and God's
HJ eternal decree. It was John Calvin
HJ who was the founder of the Presby
HJ terian church and the greatest 1'rcs
HJ byterian of all time, who apprehended,
HJ prosecuted, and had Michael Scrvetus
H burned at the stake in Geneva in 1553,
HJ just because Scrvcttiu did not have
HJ or carry the same brand of religion
H as Calvin thought he should; And
HJ now the Presbyterians .".re getting
HJ ready to celebrate the 40th annivcr
H sary of the birth of John Calvin,
HJ which will occur in 1909. The Chris
H tian Observer make? the following
H statement: "No man deserves rccog
HJ nitiou at the hands of the Presby
HJ terian churches more than John Cal
H vin, for he is to them what Luther
H is to the Lutheran churches. Let the
HJ supreme courts of those churches take
H early steps to celebrate his birth."
HJ It is not surprising that any gang
HJ of preachers who wiil celebrate the
H birth of John Calvin, who burned his
H fellow man at the stake, and .ulvo
Hj catcd the eternal roasting of infants.
Hj would pass resolutions to injure Utah.
Hj These preachers arc not unlike the
Hj mob that stood before Pontius Pilate
Hj and yelled with one accord, "crucify
Hj him, cricify him."
HJ The papers announced that Dr.
HJ Paden would give sonic public anti-
HJ Utah lectures here. Dr. Paden has
HJ undoubtedly learned fron: Senator
HJ Dubois, or Dr. Iliff, or Dclos Fink,
HJ or the Rev. Mr. Robinson, that giv-
HJ ing anti-Utah lectures in or near
HJ Philadelphia at the present time is
HJ not a comfortable or a real healthful
Hj 'pastime. A lecturer is not usually
anxious to be called to time before an
audience for uttering falsehoods. Dr.
Paden may give a little anti-Utah talk
in Mrs. Frederick Schoff's parlor or
he may entertain the would-be Wet
Nurse's Association along similar
lines when he knows that there is no
one present other than those who
carry the anti-Utah trade mark; or
he may give, on the quiet, an anti
Utah interview for some newspaper,
but he will not come out in the open,
and sing his infamious anti-Utah song
in Philadelphia at the present time.
Another one of Dr. Padcn's helpers
and a pluggcr for Tom Kcarns and
the leaders of the "American" party
is Mrs. J. J. Dicfcndorfcr. Mrs. Die
fcndorfer.is advance agent for Hans
Freeze and president cf the Woman's
Home Missionary society. She states
in the Philadelphia Press. Feb. 15,
1907, that she has just returned from
the west and "she is acquainted with
one instance where a Mormon has
married a Grandmother, her daughter,
and her daughter, each having been
married as soon as 'hey became old
enough. These three women repre
sent three generations, arc all living
in one house with the same man as
a husband." Mrs. II. W. Lippincot,
president of the National League of
Woman's Organizations, who works
in league with Mrs. Dicfcndorfcr
stated in the Philadelphia Press, Feb.
'5. '90. "Polygamy is not dying
out, it is on the increase, we know
whereof we speak. Seven or eight
girls have been decoyed :.way from
West Chester, Pa., and are no doubt
living polygamous lives." The Pres
byterian Home Mission Monthly of
New York, the exponent of the
Presbyterian Missionaries in Utah,
stated in the Oct., 190(1 number, "that
in a town (in Utah) there are fifty
Mormon women, who, if they could
leave in a body would make their es
cape, but dare not go out singly."
This number of the paper also con
tains Dr. Robert M. Stevenson'
slanders on the University of Utah,
published in ''Truth"' about June 10,
1906. Robert M. Cnig, superinten
dent of Presbyterian Mission schools
in Utah, says in the above number
of the Home Mission Monthly: "The
public school system can never meet
the educational needs- of the state in
which Mormonistn holds sway. The
child of the rankest Mormon may
take in the whole publi' ichool sys
tem of Utah and yet be no better as
a citizen than his father has been."
This Robert M. Craig says, after the
Home Mission Monthly has stated,
"that not oue Mormon marriage in
ten is honest," that the pcocplc of
Utah are traitors, disloyal, etc. There
is so much rot, falsehood, vitupera
tion, and slander against Utah being
spread abroad by Di. Paden, The
Ministerial Association, the Tribune,
the Presbyterian Hoard of Home
Missions and the leaders of the
"American" party, that it appalls the
decent citizen of Utah when he learns
of it. "How long, oh Lord," are tin
loyal citizens of Utah going to stand
V. S. PEET.
Philadelphia, Pa., Feb. 28, 1007.
ON FIVE DOLLARS A WEEK.
One of the most pathetic things in
the world is the worry and pinching,
the bitter and persistent economy
necessary to many faithful, hard
working girls in the large cities. A
writer in the New York Sun relates
a conversation which took place in a
late subway train in that city. The
car was nearly empty. Among the
passengers was a little party of shop
girls bound for the Bronx. They
were discussing the possibility of a
girl living on fifty cents a day, for
food, in New York City. The girl
with the red hat declared her belief
that it could not be done.
"But I say it can,'' rejoined the one
with the green pompon, "and I've
"For how long?" asked the red hat,
"Well, for one whole year."
"Oh, how did you do it? Please
tell how you managed!" cried the oth
ers. "And may I hear, too?" begged a
timid little stranger, coming across
from the other side of the car.
"Well, it is a great deal simpler if
you like doll mattresses," began the
"Doll mattresses? ' repeated the
"She means excelsior biscuits," cx-
