To the Editor of Goodwin's Weekly:
Delectable is the fight now waging between
the people of this state and the federal bunch,
which, through influence and aid of Apostle and
Senator Smoot, has come to control the politics
and patronage of Utah. Had Joseph F. Smith
been a less fanatical Republican and more a citi
zen he would long ago have learned what has been
brought home to him now (because it attacks his
morals) viz., that neither morality, truthfulness
nor respect for characters tried and true are con
sidered, when they seem to stand in the way of
policies which it is the wish of the federal mob to
effect. It was long ago charged that no false
hood could abash Fussy Jimmy, but rather that he
lay awake nights to invent them and spent the
morning hours in putting hem in circulation,
when by circulating them they promised to further
some unclean end which the Federal bunch had
in view; emphasis was given to this when he
whispered that President Smith was opposed
to prohibition, just as it was whispered that the
church officials had lost confidence in B. H. Rob
erts through alleged weaknesses. No one of the
high church officials is yet of record as denounc
ing the villainous libels on Roberts, -but they
stand aghast at a suggestion, even from truthful
James, that Joseph F. is opposed to prohibition.
There will be a deal more faith in the sincerity
of all the apostles, President Smith included (even
among the saints) when they show sqme concern
at the cesspool lengths which Anderson and the
bunch go in sheer assaults on other decent men
than those of their own quorum.
We are always expected to remember that
even the great are frail men when they err, but
that fact will-much more readily be borne in mind
when the big ecclesiasts themselves give evi
dence of manliness by resenting the assaults of
their political phists against others, even when
those others are not their friends.
The federal bunch has lied all along about the
church officials. But the result was not unpleas
ant to the officials. Since it spelled political suc
cess, it could be endured, and there followed no
rebuke for the liars. But when these lies go to a
political end which indicates that Joseph F. Smith
is antagonistic to prohibition then it's a differ
ent matter, and "there you are!"
So with the lesser Smoot organ the party or
gan. In every campaign it has encouraged, indi
rectly and directly, Mormon people to believe their
church leaders would have them follow the Re
publican party cause. But now the voice of that
debaucher is virtuously warning the Mormon peo
ple that they must not be controlled as Mormons.
So, also, the sainted News, which stood for all
the lies and libels of the federal bunch and its
organ against Mormon Democrats, is after the
bunch now, and openly charges them not only
with having been bought by the brewers and saloon-keepers,
and the Smoot organ with having
sold its favor like another harlot, for a new
press, but goes further and declares that the
proposal to put the liquor traffic under control of
the governor is not only un-American, but per
mits the erection of a political machine whoso
strength and character are to be based upon all
the vile and abandoned influences that the mind
inevitably associates with saloons and their hab
itues. There have been those who thought Joseph F.
Smith too big a man to suffer wrong, that he
could prevent, to be done even to an enemy; but
his seeming indifference to the dastardly attacks
on the character of Roberts by those of his own
name no less than by the night-toil bunch at
tacks which, if effectual, would destroy the life
of a man are inexcusable. View his
beliefs as we may, that has at least
been open as a book, and in sterling liar-
