daughter of Margaret Van Wcott Young,
was bom in 1870; bis oldest, now the
wife of Edmund Ellsworth, must have
been' lorn as early ks I82o, for Brigham
was a widower with two daughters
when he joined the Mormons, and his
grandchildren in this line are now well
advanced men and women. So his
active parental life covered a period
of forty-five years, and (though lhave
no Lite returns) hi children, grand
children and great grandchildren
number at least loo. Not bad for an
alkali country! Add widows, and
sons-in-law, and grandsons-in-law,
and the number interested in the es
tate amounts to nearly two hundred.
Tlie old man has outlasted three
generations of wives, and had made a
pretty goxl start on tlie fourth, for he
married Amelia Folsom eleven years
ago, and the last time I saw her she
was beginning to look like an old wo
man. Brigham lost his first wifequlte
youngi Her daughters are both in pol
ygamy that is, their husltands have
other "women" than them, mid have
large families. .Their daughters also
have many children, and, counting
his Iirst and second wives, it is said by
some M ho ought to know that Brig
ham's legitimate offsprings are after
nil, nearly as numerous as his illegiti
mate. About the time he was-converted,
he married Mary Ann Angell.
She is his present legal wife, and has for
many years lived in the "white cottage
on the bench" that is on the liill just
buck of Brigham's. She was of the
same age as Brigham, and, about 1843,
he iH'gan on liis second lot of wives.
Joe Smith got his "Revelation of Ce
lestial Marriage" July 12,1813, and, as
soon thereafter as Brigham could get
authority, he married the Decker sis
ters. One of them, Lucy, had Ixen
for some time married to Dr. Seely,
of Nauvoo, but the High Council set
that marriage aside, and Brigham took
her and the Doctor went to "grass."
His fourth wife was Harriet Cooke,
whom he took soon after the exodus
from Nauvoo; but she was a "rebel
lious spirit," and at Winter Quarters
(now Florence Nebraska) "the devil
entered into and did possess her."
(For "iossession," and the plan of re
lief adopted, see Captain Dan Jones'
account in the 11th volume of the
Millennial Star; aLso Pratt's Key to
Theology ami other Mormon .works.)
As a result she railed on Brigham and
denounced lolygamy and ended by
trying to strangle her baby, Orcar
Young.. Brigham managed to prevent
that, and in due time "the devil left
her," but he swore she should never
liecome mother the second time. And
she did not. . He married a few more
wives while establishing the settle
ment in Utah; but all of this lot retir
ed as early as lfioo or 180i).
His great favorite then, and the one
who retaiucd his a flection the longest,
was EmniclineFree, from New Haini
shire. ,And she was truly a lovely
woman. Her children are. I think,
the handsomest of I .righa m's offspri ng,
and she lxire him ten. He was proud
of her Inanity and accomplishments,
and lor at least twelve years she was
beyond question the queen of his
heart. But youth and beauty can't
lant always, and altout 1S(5 Brigham
began to hanker for a new ileal.
Then Enimelino lecamc desperate.
She applied to Mary Ann Angell, the
first wife, for help to prevent another
marriage, but the latter was long past

affections twined around Amelia Fol

since; save for a few wide disturbances,
most noted of which M as the alimoni

heart-broken, and, to add to her
troubles, she had to bear the reproach

displaced. She took to opium for con

I think it was alnnit a week after
the burial of -Emmelinc (she was
Uiried with surprising indifference to
detnils aud appearance) that we had
a large party of excursionists from the
East. They all called on Brigham
and pawl tneir most profound respects,
and were positively indignant at some
of us resident ueutues for the war Ave
made on the hierarchy. One lady

afterward sent me a clipping from an
lCustern paper, with her able defense
of Briguain therein. Hike to hear

so logically, and it sounds so natural.
But this is a digression, and above all
thiugs I am determined not to preach.
Y ell. Amelia necanie the reoogtiz
ed Queen of the Harem in lSti, and
h is ruled the old fellow ever since. It
is hinted that she knows too much, and
that he would have liked to "shake"
her, but did not dare. All the style of
all the other wives put together
wouldn't equal hers. She had an ele
crant. palace built for her sole self,
across the street from the main hen
nery, and generally lives more like the
wife of a uiollionaire and great leader
than did ny Of his predecessors.
Brigham has had tour or Ave flirta
tions sinco 1WJ15, and had married a
time or two, but none of them amount
ed to anything. It would appear that
Ami Eliza raibflr thought she could
supersede Amelia, and did hold her
own well for a few months, but the
other soon knocked her clear out of
the ring. Hence these tears. Marga
ret Van Cott, one of the latest, is a
good woman, a:;d a mother, too, and
it is said this lastcircunistanfeirritates
Amelia more than anything else. She
has not leeii at all reticent in her in-t-inuations
about ''that woman's baby,"
but nobody U'lieves such charges; the
character of Margaret is too well es
tablished. Saint and (Gentile are wil

jwirt of the big estate.
But there was one woman, Selina
Urseiibaeh, who, couM Riigham liave
won her, would have made it lively
for Amelia. She was the sister of Oc
tave I rseiilmch, famous in Utah as the
architect who designed the big organ
in the Mormon Taltcniaele. Brigham
was in love for the thirtieth time, and
his love was warm warmer than his
youthful passion in a geometrical pro
gression. Selina was a young, beauti
ful Swiss lady. She played on all
musical instruments, and spoke the
purest French, lirigham made him
elf a perfect dandy tor her sake. She
smiled on a young fcllow.and Brigham
sent him away on mission. ThenSo
linagot disgusted, anostatiz-ed from tlie
Church, and went back to Switzer
land. But n jjrignani could have

Hon. V. C. Whitthorne spoke
his Lewis county constituents at New
burg, on Thursday, Aug. 30, 1877. He
said that in oliedience to what he be
lieved to lie the duty of a Itepreseitta
tive of the jieople, lie was present to
render to his constituency, an account
of the trust they had repised, in liiin;
and at same time to give his own,' anil
elicit their opinions in regard to. ques
tions, upon which he might lie - called
to act as such a Representative.
Hastily referring to the results yf the
recent Presidential 'election'and re
adopting his views as presenfed in his
Franklin sjieecli, he proceeded to
sketch the present condition" of the
country. In doing so. he said, two
forces were at work winch fillet! him
with grave apprehension, as -to the
future of popular institutions, to-wit:
Communism upon the one hand
and centralization upon the "Other
that he dreaded -the strength and
growing power of centralization, more
than he did Communism. He
pointed out the measures, and argu
ments being used and adopted, the
logic of which, in his opinion, .was to
uudermine the great theory upon
which our whole civil fabric of govern
ment was based the capacity of the
jx-ople for self-government. "Amongst
others of these arguments, was the one
urging a large increase of the regular
army, to which, the latter proposition,
he announced his decided opposition;
stating that liefore he would vote to
create an army, which in "character
and size, might become a menace to
tlie pecple and their liberties, even
though demanded by his immediate
constituency he would surrender his
position as Representative. At the
same time he was decidedly opjosed
to mob law and mob violence; Iteliey
ing as lie did, that the laboring" men
of the country, among whom he in
eluded, all workers Mho by their", labor
aud industry contributed to the pro
duction of wealth, had good grounds
of complaint against tlie present con
dition of tilings. , - ,r
And he advised all parties to oljedi
enee to the constitution and laws, and
an appeal to the tribunal of . reason,
rather than an appeal to force. '-'Having
faith in the capacity of the people
forsolf-governmeiit,he believed justice
and right would ultimately prevail.
Turning to that tribunal, he said he
was ready to demonstrate that for the
complaints of the laboring men of
the country, there was just grounds of
complaint in the legislation of the
country since the close of the war. &
In doing so, lie reviewed
the ,. contraction of . the Currcncy
under Mr. McCulloch, the passage
of the gold net of l.siiii, the first act of
Congress approved by Grant. The crea
tion and management of the sinking
fund by Geo. S. BoutweIl,tlie demone
tization of silver in 1873, and the pas
sage of the resumption act of Ijs7o, ail
of which was done by the Republican
party, and for the benefit of capital
and at the expense of labor. That
this policy of the national government
had contracted the value of property
ami labor, and enhanced the power
and strength of capital, and the result
bad been the universal distress, pover
ty,and bankruptcy, which now aSlict
ed the country.
Elalorating these points at some
length, the speaker said, that in his
opinion, it was the duty of Congress,
at its next session, as measures of re
lief promptly - .
I To reical the resumption net- : .'
To restore tlie silver dollar to it
ancient use and power;
To restore the volume of the

terest of revenue alone:
To provide fi r the collection of such
internal reveuue as might lie collected
by methods and agencies with which
the people were familiar;
To retrench and reduce the expenses

Ihe speaker touched upon other
points, such as the acquisition of the
Northern States of Mexico, intimating
tnai wueueverit coum lie done with
out an infraction of national faith he
was for it. Gen. Whitthorne closed
