THE MORMON CHURCH IS. TODAY.
GROWING MORE RAPIDLY THAN ANY OTHER.
Prtsldent Joseph F. Smith, Apostle Reed Smoot, the church's financial Institution and the great
bronze statue of Brigham Young.
SALT LAKE CITY, Dec. 11.—A I
(light as bitter as that which follow
ed the election of Roberts to the
house of representatives
which ended in the refusal of
tmX body to allow him hla scat. Is
anout to begin in Utah with the
candidacy of Reed Smoot for the
United States senate.
That Smoot, who la one of the 12
apostles of the Mormon church, is
being supported hy the church is
evident. Some years ago an apostle
of the church was a candidate for
the same position, and because he
failed to obtain "permission" from
the church he was disciplined and
dropped froh silt glh position. At
thnt time the heads of the church
in public interviews stated that they
could not allow men who owed al
ieglence to the church to enter into
political tights without the "permis
Blon" of the church. That no at
tempt has been made to hinder
Smoot in his candidacy for the of-
Ilce is therefore evidence that he is
supported by the church, which
means that he will be elected,
'Phe oandidacy of Smoot for the
senate is only a part of the plans of
the Mormon church to further Its
interests by placing its representa
tives in the greatest law making
body In the world. The failure of
Roberts to obtain his sent iv con
gress has not discouraged the
church, for it is not In the habit of
being discouraged over anything.
That Smoot will be elected Is a
foregone conclusion; that he will
be seated Is another matter.
Pew people who are not directly
familiar with tho Mormon church
and lis methods realize what a
power It is in Utah. It seems to be
the general opinion that doing
away with plural marriages broke
the backbone of the church, but

Stronger today than it ever was. and
DO other church in the world is
growing so fast as this "Church of
the letter Day Saints." Its mis

every community in the United

The keynote of the Mormon faith
and of its success is cooperation.
This principle is carried Into every
walk of life and every business en
terprise, and It Is responsible for
the great success of the creed. All
sorls nnd conditions of men are
sought as members of the church,
and over them all the church reigns
supreme. Bach member of the
church Is supposed to pay into the
church one-tenth of his "increase,"
and those tithes are religiously I
turned in. At the head of the
church is President Joseph K.
Smith, ami under him the organl
■ation Is perfect The great coun
cil of the church is composed of
12 npostles. and they are the final
court of the church. Not only do
they control the destinies of tho
church, but of all good members of
the church as well,
The lowest grade of church of

are two of these to each block of

members of the church in their dis
tricts frequently and at monthly
meetings of all the teachers in tho
ward they report in delail the do- j
lngs of each member of the church.
They settle all disputes where pos
sible, nnd keep watch to see that
the tithes are paid. Disputes that

times are taken up to the council
of the 12 apostles itself.
It is no wonder that a people hav
ing such a complete organization
are able to control a state, and they
do, for the governor aud nearly all
of the stale officials are prominent
i members of the church.
The co-operative principal of the
church is extensively carried into
business in Utah, President Smith
of the Church is also president of a
dozen of the biggest business enter
prises of the state. Separate elec- j
tions are held for all these enter
prises, but they are purely formal, I
for an election to the presidency of
the church means that the other
elections will follow as a matter of
j course. Among the enterprises at
| which he is the head are the '/ion
ICo-Operative Mercantile company,
jthe largest mercantile business in
the state; Ziou's Savings Bank &
Trust company, the deposits of
j which are greater than those of all
other savings banks in the state
; together: the State flank of Utah,
the Consolidate*! Wagon *t Ma
chine company, the Utah Sugar
company, the Utah Light & Power
company, the Inland Crystal Salt
company and hundreds of others.
Practically all of the business of
the state is conducted by Mormons,
I and above them all comes Joseph
V. Smith and the church.
The organisation ot the church is
so complete and far reaching and
the members are so loyal and so
'jealous of their "rights" that they
are controlled in politics as easily
as they are in the every day af
fairs of life. And Reed Smoot is
the candidate of the church for the
United States senate.
