The Weyerhaeuser & Denkraann

first cutting will not be done until the
last of the week.

POLITICS THROUGH CHURCH

"Mormonism. the Religious Octopus
of America," was the subject of a stir
ring lecture yesterday afternoon at the
men's meeting of the Y. M. C. A. by
Attorney James L. Loar, of Blooming
ton. The lecture was attended by a
large audience of men. Mr. Loar said
fiat the Morman church, already con
trolling the affairs of church and state
in Utah and largely in Idaho, was seek

Utah, practicing his profession. He
was state president of the Epworth
league, and of the Sunday School
league. In this work he had an op
portunity to learn a great deal about
Mormonism. He told of the first cam
paign in Utah based on republican and
democratic principles. He gave an
interesting outline on the Moses
Thatcher and Brigham H. Roberts
campaign, when the church defeated
these two candidates by means of the
republican party and the "grape vine
.Smith an a I'olltlrlaa.
Up to within a few days of the elec
tion these two democratic candidates
were conceded the election. Then Jos
eph F. Smith, president of the Mormon
church, declared they were opposing
his religion and told the Mormons not
to vote for them. It being a rule that
before they could become candidates
for office, members of the church
should ask the consent of the church.
Neither of the two candidates had
done so. Four years later Mr. Rob
erts was elected to the United States
congress by the church.
Roberts admitted that he was a poly-
gamist, and was sent back to Utah.

told of the Reed Smoot Investigation.

one wife, and is not a polygamist, but

"The Mormon church is as anarchis
tic as the men who threw the bombs
in Chicago during the Haymarket
riot," said the speaker. It is claimed
that Mr. Smoot has taken what is
termed the endowment oath, suppos
ed to be an oath of vengeance against
the government. Mr. Ioar's lecture
was illustrated with views of the coun
try, and photographs of the leaders of
the church. He told of the private
life of Joseph F. Smith, president of
the church, who has five wives.
Though he' admits that he is violating
the laws of the church, and of the
state, Mr. Smith said that he would
take the chances of ever being prose
cuted. In speaking of Brigham Young,
the real founder of the church. Mr.
Iar said that he was a remarkable
man, and had he been a good man he
would have been found in the highest

the irrigation systems of the state, and
of many other beneficial Institutions.

advocated a constitutional amendment,
