tOOK AT THIS
Republican Workers Disobey
ing the First Presidency
NAILED AND EXPOSED
John 0 Graham is BUllY Telling Mormons
That Joseph F Smith Speaks the Poli
tical Sentiments of the Mormon Leaders
Did He Ever Tell Anything More
False
The following affidavit speaks for it
self It reveals the character of the
campaign the desperate republicans are
making They do not hesitate to over
ride the declarations of Presidents
Woodruff and Cannon made at the
commencement of the campaign that
the church is neutral in politics All
that it cares for is to have the cam
paign made on clean and christianlike
principles
This flying in the face of the first
presidency in this way is very wicked
but it is at the same time very charac
teristic of the man who does it The
intelligent men in the Mormon chuch
will not be caught with this sort of
chaff will not be played for gudgeons
in this way
We respectfully call the attention of
the presidency to this affidavit
It waa received by Levi Openshaw
through the mail yesterday and the
following introductry letter accompan
ied it
SANTAQUIH Utah Oct 22 1894
Mr Levi Optuehaw
Provo Utah
DEAR SmI did not think when
speaking of Grahams remarks about
Joseph 1 Smith in conversation yes
terday that it would ever come to publi
cation Mr Graham has always been
a friend of mine but when men go out
turn pmc for our leaders in our religi
ous Lull I think it my duty as an
American citizen to let such facts be
known It is all rijiUt to preach re
ligion in religious places but demo
racy is too solid in Santaquin to stuff
ballots with any suh doctrine as we
have had here of late It may have
fleet on that class of people who have
to be led with a string but most of
us are not as green as our old clothes
make us look Hut then the poor fel
lows have got td fall bucK on BOme
thing It is said a drowning man will
bang to a straw Hopinc my affidavit
worn to before T B Heeles is all that
is necessary

The Salt Lake Newsgathorers Would Do
Well to Give Credit Where is Due
The Salt Lake Herald has one repor
ter who yery frequently gets off his
base It is the fellow who does the
police court rounds
That reporter seems to delight
in giving each and every peace officer
who resides inSaltLake city fulsome
praise and all credit in and out of sea
son He even goes so far as to take up
good work done by Utah county officers
and credit the Salt Lake men with it
This hat been done by him time and

During the last few days since
tile capture of Bartlett and
Murry the Santa Fe train wreck
era in the persons of the men
who committed the burglaries hew in
Provo last week who gave tneir names
as Ryan and Smith particularly has
his Salt Lake Herald reporter been
talking through his hat
It is well known here that the men
would never have been arrested but for
the work of Sheriff Brown of this
county and his aids and it is aleo well
known that the Salt Lake officers had
in their possession ll the dame information
tion as did Mr Brown and that they
had the criminals in their hands
twentyfour hours and never once
guessed who they were and that it
was not until after Sheriff Brown had
the prize secured that they learned
what they had missed After they
learned this four of the salt Lake
officers came down and begged for a
slice of the reward
None of all thin has the Herald re
porter ever mentioned but on the con
trary he has persistently ignored Sher

and this morning he has the following
to say
The clever capture of two of the
Santa Fe train wreckers in this city
by the police gave the Denver officials
and the railroad people great pleasure
Both of the men are being held at
Provo subject to the orders ot Chief
Pratt A dispatch wan received yes
terday from the Colorado sheriff asking
ing that they be Guarded very careful

requisition papers were being prepared
The third man is still at large but the

The men are being held here by
Sheriff Brown and not subject to the
orders of Chief Pratt The dispatch
referred to was received 4 bj
Mr Brown The police will
not secure 40000 for the two cap

CARNIVAL OF GRIME
Wholesale Robbery Numerous Towns
In Indian Territory
LITTLE RoCK Ark Oct 23LaBt
nights programme in the great carni
val of crime which is now holding the
boards in the Indian Territory consis
ted of the wholesale robbery of several
small towns in genuine desperado style
by Mr Bill Cook supported by a strong
and desperate company of eight or ten
followers
Four men rode into the town of
Watova early in the evening making
their approach made known by a prom
iscuous discharge of firearms The
bandits terrorized the inhabitants and
most of them sought safety in their
houses behind barricaded doors The
outlaws visited every store in the vil
lage aid ran the merchants away with
Winchesters and revolvers
The took from the stores all the
motley they could find and whatever
else they wauled The Watova post
office was robbed of about 60 in cash
and about 55 in stamps
From Watova the gang ran on into
Tala ten miles away where they ra
peateJ their depredations They rode
into the town and proceeded at once to
rob stores right and left Every store
in the place Was visited and the pro
prietors compelled to tint over iJaMr
cash the poscouice was also robbed
of stamps and a small amount of
money The bandits entered the town
boldlv and made no effort to conceal
their identity None were masked
From reports of their descriptions they
were undoubtedly the same gang that
held up the Missouri Pacific Caretta
SidingSaturday night It is believed
that it was the bandits intention to
rob the Missouri Pacific train No 231
at Tala While they were holding up
the postcffice the train pulled into
the station The trainmen were
notified of the presence of the gang
and the train was started at once The
bandits galloped out of town discharg
ing their Winchesters

1THEPAYSON RALLY
Rawlins and Roberts Address
Two Large Audiences
ROBERTS WAS DEFIANT
And for the Benefit of His OrltlC Re
peated With uoubla Emphasis the Re
marks he Made at Beaver Kawlins was
More Than Eloquent and Convincing
The truths of democracy were ex
jopnded last evening at Payson to im
mense audiences by Hons J L Raw
lIDs and B II Roberts
It is estimated that there were fif
teen hundred people present at the
two meetings The opera house was
crowded to overflowing every availa
ble inch of space being occupied
Standing room was at a premium and
during the three hours ot the meeting
the listeners were held spell bound
the large meetinghouse was also
filled with a like audience
Mr Rawlins spokefor two houre
at the opera house dealing
chiefly with the tariff and sil
ver questions During the last
half hour of his speech he rose to a
light of eloquence and powerful logic
such as has seldom been heard in a
political > meeting
Mr Roberts at the meeting ouse in
his own powerful and eloquent way
also touched upon the tariff question
but dealt chiefly with local questionsTo
he delight of the democrats and the
diecomfiture of the republicans he
verlastingly scored the latter party
with the truths of history
Mr Roberts is as fearless as he is
loquent He flung defiance at his
critics and repeated with double em
phasis his remarks at Beaver
For the last hour of the two meetings
tbe gentlemen changed off Mr Raw
lint Speaking at the tneetinehuuse and
ilr Roberts at the opera house
A torchlight procession a brass ban
and a shot gun brigade met the speak
ers at the depot and paraded the
streets
Altogether the rally was one of the
argest if not the very largest ever held
in Utah county
