SALT LAk VlTV, Qct, 15. A statement
from WUford Vostlruir, president of the
Mormon church, concerning the recent
priesthood meeting, has just been pub
llshetl. President Woodruff says: 'There
Uaa liecn so much written and said con
cerning the priesthood racrtinjrheld on the
7th of October that I feel it my duty to
make a statement concerning it. I con
sider it tho right of every man, woman and
child on earth to enjoy their religion, let
that religion be what it may, for that is'
between themselves and their creator, f'o
I say with regard to.polities. Kvery man
has a right to enjoy his political belief aa-mo'cs-ti-d.
"Coc rning the meeting referred to,
there vis not according to my recolli-c-tion
one word said about Democrats Re
publicans or politics. When the Church
of Jesus Christ and Latter Day Saints
was orennized no man was counted at
liberty from the organization of the church
to engage in any branch of business,
politics or anything else, to take him en
tirely away from Ids ealling, business,
duty or responsibility without first coun
seling With the president of the church
and getting his premission to do so. This
course does not require! a man to give up
his position in the Democratic party or
the Hepuhlican party.
"Seeveral Democrats have called upon
me since this campaign commenced.
Among the numlier was my friend John
T. Cain, saying he had lxen nominated
for governor. I said '(jo ahead, I think
you will make a good governor.' I think
so still. Kvery man has a right to with
draw from his quorum or the church if
he wishes, liut while he remains in the
quorum or in tho church, we think ho
should bo subji.-ct to the same rules w

RULED ON A TAX QUESTION.
Decision in Ihe Cac of Church Property,
Etc. 1y tho Illlnol Sanrrnic Court.
pPi:iNOFlF.l.l),().-t. l.i. A decision handed
down by the supremo court establishes the
rule that property of religious, charitable
ad educational organizations which i;
not used exclusively by these associations
Is subject to assessment for taxation. The
case came licfore the supreme court on in
formation filed by David (lore, auditor of
public accounts, against the Young Men's
Christian association of I'eoria. The as
sociation erected, n hnml.-sime five story
brick mid stone building on one of t lie
principal business streets of that city.
A port ion of t ho building was us d by
the association for religious and other
patherhms under lis own auspices, f-n
gymnasium, reading rooms, bath rooms
and other purpose-i. The remainder of the
building is rcnti-d to a bank, a tith- guar-anti-e
and abstract company and to a num
ber of lawyers, dentist--, doctors and in
surance agents, ut an aggregate rental of
!1.IM a year. The property was ap
praised, ami lidd subject to taxation by
the auditor of state, who sent the case to
the supreme court. The court holds that
the property is not exempted by the sec
tions of the revenue net. which relieve
church property from taxation, because it
is not used exclusively for public worship.
Tile opinion states that as the case is
pn-sent.il it is not necessary to decide
whether the prom-rty would lie liable te
taxation if used exclusively in carrying
out the object and purpose of the Younu
Men s Christian association as expressiil
in its charter, which states that it is or
ganiited for "the improvement of the spir
itual, mental, social and physical condi
tion of young men." It is the opinion ol
the court that "le-cause a part of the
building may be Sii used the whole d.x-s
not leeomo exempt."

Havana, O.-t 15. The recent use of

STII.I. THE GOVKKNOK KICKS.
Will I nlUt 10.000 .11,-n to Prevent An;
Sort of Fight.
Little Rock, Oct. 15. Governor Clarke
yesterday furnished fresh evidence of his
determination to prevent tho Corliett
t ltzsimnions fight nt Hot Springs, or in
Arkansas. A telegram was sent by the
governor to Brigadier General George P.
Tnvlor, of Korost Citv, of the Arkansas
State guard, summoning him to a confer
cure at once. The meaning of the confer
ence is that the governor desires to ac
quaint himself with the available strength
of the state militia o that he may act
knowingly if the nit nation at Hot Spring!
reaches a crisis where the services of the
militia may be required.
According to the offers contained in tel
rr-ratr.s and letters r-'t-eived at the execu
tive office Governor Clarke estimates that
the services of lO.oni men are ar his dls
posal for the purpose of putting down
the light if needed. Governor Clarko was
more emphatic than ever in saying that
the light would not boullowod to come off
in Arkansas. He g.ics so far as to say that
if the affair occurs as advertised nt Hot
Springs he would resign and try to find an
office he could run.
The governor says Corbett and Fitzsim-
mons have been warned and if they now
arrive at Hot Springs licnt on the mission
of lighting, their presence in that city i.t
county will In- construed as an overt act
and be treated accordingly. Governor
Clarke said he did not want to any blood
shell as a r.-sult of the pugilists' rwtustil to
refrain from making prciMrations to light
When questioned in reference to the
proposition to change the affair into a
glove contest Governor Clarke said that
he could make no distinction between a
glove contest and a prizefight; it was a
prize fight no matter what name it wai
chilled, and it should not conns off.
