John Taylor Addressing- the Saints
A special dispatch to the Globe
Democrat says, ''John Taylor ad
dressed the saints in the Taberna
cle yesterday. He referred to his
recent trip, and said he went to
Arizona to "straighten things out a
little." Some of the brethren were
being persecuted there and sent to
the American Siberia for liviriir
their religion. He spoke of the
Federal authorities here who are
"persecuting the saints" as"sneaks
and tramps." Fellows with papers
from courts were intruding them
selves into the houses of the saints
to spv on them. There was a limit
to this thing, when forbearance
would cease to be a virtue, but he
didn't want violence nor bloodslied
just now and counseled the people
to forbear a little longer, as there
would soon be a change. "The
saints live above the law of man,
they obey the law of God," and he
would never give it up no never;
so help him God. The congrega
tion shouted "amen." He denoun

Constitution by Congress, the Exe

John Taylor, President of the
Church of Latter Day Saints, will
live much longer than the Govern
ment or the united btaies shall
stand, if he expects to see Hie time
in this country when the "saints"
will live above, or regardless of the
laws that hold us together as a na
tion. We are glad to hear him re
ported as not . wanting "violence or
bloodshed" at this particular time,
and that he has the discretion to
say so that he couuscls his dupes
to forbear, for a season, with sixty
millions of people who more than
a century ago repelled and forbade

TOiero Is Jtl Who Owns Ic ? Of TCiom
Was It Obtained Its Area

The following letter to the Globe
Democrat will interest .most of
our readers. The action of the U.
S. Government in the recent forci
ble ejectment of settlers ought to
settle the question, however, that
they have no claim to the "Beauti
ful Lar.d," and to obtain the right
to make homes for the "thousands
of homeless families" there, the'
must go to Congress through their
representatives for it :
The term "Oklahoma" is mythi
cal and signifies "beautiful land.'5
These lands lie west of 97 degices
and extend to 100 degrees west lon
gitude, and between 34 and 37 de
grees north latitude; and, accord
ing to a late map published bv the
Interior Department of the General
Land Office, this tract comprises
an area of about 40,000 square
miles or 25,000,000 acres of land.
These lands are embraced in what
is known as the "Louisiana pur
chase," bought by the United States
of France in 1S03, and it embraced
all the territory belonging to France
which lav west of the Mississippi
River. This cessionlby France ves
ted the title to said Territory in the
United States subject to the title of
Indians then occupying the Terri
tory. Thus, before the United
States could vest clear title to said
soil and guarantee the same, it be
came necessary to extinquish the
Indian title to' the land.. This was
done accordingly, by treaty made
with Indians at various times when
the United States organized this
vast domain into territories.
Hence, the government has al
ways recognized the Indian- title to
these lands. Subsequent to the
abolition of slavery, the U. S. made
a treatv with the five civilized tribe?
of Indians occupying the Indian
Territory, and extinguished their
title to the western portion of the
territory; ostensibly, for the pur
pose of settling freed men and other
tribes of Indians thereon.
The treatv under which said
lands were obtained, was made with
the Scminoles, March 21, 1S66;
with the Creeks, Juno 14, 1S66;
witth he Cherpkecs, July 19, 1866.
and with the Choctaws and Chica
saws, about the same time. This
tract was taken charge of by the
general Government, and was or
dered to bo surveyed and laid off
into townships six miles, square,
winch was accordingly done.
Srrosequent to this purchase
from the Indians, the freedmcn, by
act of Congress, were made citi
zens of the United States; henc.e,
they have no more right to occupy
these lands than white citizens
have. Since its acquisition, how
ever, the united btates Govern
ment has appropriated about 10,
000,000 acres of this land in the
settlement of various small tribes
Oi.j. .1 -it. . n
States and other Territories), viz :
the Sacs and Foxes were ceded
470,667 acres; the Potawatomies,
575,577 acres ; the Wichitas, 743,
610 acres, and by Executive order,
the Comanches, Kiowas, Chycnnes,
Arrapahoes, Kickapoos, Pawnees.
Towas, Missouris, Ottoes, Ponas,
Noz Perces, Kansas, and other
tribes were given reservations.
Since settling the aforesaid tribes
on these lands, Congress has passed
a law prohibiting the settlement of
any more Indians in the Territory.
There still remains about 15,
000.000 acres of these land unas
signed. The Indians say these be
long to the United States.
Indian Commissioner Price de
clares they are Government lands,
and the United States Commis
sioner regards them as such, and
has put his stamp upon them as
United States public lands in the
late map published by the general
land department. I hey are doubt
less a part of the public domain
bought of France in 1803, and pur
chased of the five civilized tribes
of Indians by treaty in 1863.
As there arc no freed men to set
tle on vhese lands, and as Congress
has made a law prohibiting the
settlement of any more Indians in
that Territory, what is Congress
going to do with these lands? Do
they intend to keep them for the
stock rings to herd their cattle up
on, and. protect them by the Unit
eel States army against the intru
sion of settlers, and allow the thous
ands of homeless families to go
The time has come when the
people demand recognition, and
Congressmen who do not heed the
warning let them beware !
