Until within a comparatively few yearn

But conditions havo changed, and for
every workman, on an average, there are
two jobs now In the heyday ot our pros
perity, and it is expecting too much of
human nature to suppose that working
men shall not drslre a lurgor share of the
profits, lias not this motive been the
stimulating Incentive ot tho men who are
making business alfalra? No one who Ih
acquainted with union labor for tho past
five years cun fail to recognize the won

in conservative, cool-headed and thor

matters by the workiiignuMi thi-msclves.
Labor organizations may be open to

The menace of today, as I view It, Is
the spread of a spirit of Socialism, one of
thoeo things which is only half understood
and s more or less used to inllame tho
popular ' mind against all Individual ini

been the very essence of American pro
Kic.xH. Ther-j is a spirit of co-operation or
commmunlty of Interests, which some
people may confound with Socialism, that
is making headway with us; but when
anv one attempts, for political or financial
reasons, to advocate the whole programme
of European Socialism, he will find llttlo
prospect of the seeds taking root in
American soil- This. 1 think, was demon

Ltrgt Crowd Testifies to In

Schroeder Holds That Fight Against
Smoot Is Based on. Legal Grounds,
and Not Bcligion.
Xey York, Jan. 22. Theodore Schroe
der, formerly of Salt Lake nnd well
known for his anti-Mormon views,
spoke tonight at the meeting of the
Manhattan Liberal club in New York
upon the subject, "Should Reed Smoot
Be Expelled from the Senate?" The
meeting waa an open one and the Ger
man Masonic temple, where it was
held, was packed to the doors. Mr.
Schroeder has one of the best Mormon
libraries on the continent and foriified
all his statements by quotations from
Mormon publications.
The speaker began by saying that he
wanted to put himself right with those
who thought this Is a roliglous persecu
tion, and said he held with Christendom
that everyone had a right to worship
what he pleased fo long as it did not
tramp on some one t-lse's toes. Said he:
"However, he is not entitled with im
punity, either Individually or by organ
ized effort, to encourage the violation of
any such statutory inhibition which is
in force. To do this has ever been, one
of the III -concealed purposes of the
leaders among the Latter-day Saints.
That the leaders of the organization
now connive at the continuance of un
lawful cohabitation. In violation of 'its
solemn pledges, and State laws, no one
denies that I know of unless it Is Sen
ator Smoot
"This particular disregard of law is
but an incident In that farther-reaching
and deeper-seated disloyally, conse
quent upon the recognition of a higher
temporal allegiance, due to the heads of
their church, than- that which is yielded
the State. The evidence adduced in sup
port of this charge, will bo taken wholly
from statements of Mormon ecclesiasts
of the highest rank. Their admissions
are binding upon Senator-elect Smoot,
because those who made them arc ac
cepted by him as men whose voice is
the voice of God. whose will 1h the will
of God, and whose power Is the power
of God unto salvation. Thus he recog
nlzus them, not only as the literal
mouthpieces of God and. Inferentlally,
God-like, but by their express declara
tion, they arc to him veritable gods in
their own being, wJjosm every utterance,

pellcd to shut down, throwing 7000 men
and boys out of work. The Big and
Little Shenangocs, which meet at
oven in ordinary conversation, is a rev
elation from God. To these apotheo
sized men Mr. Smoot has sworn allegi
ance and obedience in all matters,
whether right or wrong, including the
determination of his scientific convic
tions and his duty to tho State, he fur
ther covenanting to forfeit his life for
divulging their secrets, or becoming an
apostate through disobedience.
"Those to whom he yields this lilghpr
allegiance, as the mouthpieces of an un
changing God, repeatedly proclaimed the
purpose to make their church tri
umphant over the governments of the
world, aa the temporal kingdom of God.
The means was by an overthrow of all
earthly governments, beginning with
the Government of the United States."
He went on to recount how the church 1
had trouble with the Government and
how it stood in relation to the Federal
court.s and ollicials. He told of success
ful efforts to thrwart justice in murder
trials and recited the fact that the Hag
was trampled in the dust at a religious
meeting and on a Fourth of July hung
at half mast.
"The organization of which Mi'. Bmoot
is a leading official holds it to be treason
to the temporal kingdom of God, for its
officers to admit a higher allegiance in
matters of state than that due to church
chlefy. For asserting such higher alle
giance to the State, Moses Thatcher
was excluded from the quorum of apos
tles, a distinction since attained by Mr.
"The United States may and should
affirm the converse of the proimsiiion, ,
namely. That no man is qualified for
public office, who In matters of slate,
owen a higher allegiance to any man,
or set of men, than that which he owes
lo the State, That test will exclude Mr.
Smoot ;and for that reason we demand
that he be excluded. This is not a mat
ter of religion, but of citizenship; not a
question of liberty, but of loyalty."

London, Jan 23. The delay in the
Russian reply to the latest note from
Japan js causing the customary crop
of sensational statements pointing to
the Imminence of war In the far East.
The Daily Graphic this morning yays
it understands that there is no likeli
hood of a compromise, owing to the un
yielding attitude of Japan on the Man
churian question and the fact that in
her last note to Russia Japan struck
out the whole article in the draft of
the treaty relating to the demands of
Russia fof a neutral zone.
A St. Petersburg dispatch says the
Czar has not yet called the council lo
consider the Japanese reply but, it is
stated at tho Foreign office, that the
summons may be issued any day. The
delay, coupled with dispatches from
Tokio saying that Japan is nrmod and
grimly awaiting, has caused a slight
renewal of public nervousness, which
was roilectcd by the weakness on the
bourse today. This ularm Is seeming
ly not shared in the higher Government
circles, where it is insisted that the
Czar's pacific declarations were not
Idle words. Tho worst that Is now an
ticipated is the breakdown of the ne

being unacceptable to Jnpun.

that In tho event of War between Rus

battleground, at least In tho beginning.
Mr. Allen, the American Minister at

from Seou). as follows:
"Considerable disturbance throughout !

"It Is learned that hi view of the poa- I

rank, namely, a Major-General, to Seoul,

any military operations that Japaneso i
troops may undertake, Tho Korean Gov

they have not been trained in a modern
school of war, and resemble constabulary

here that Japan In Koera will repeat the
performances of Russia in Manchuria,
and make the disturbances on the Jap

occupation of tho line in great force, cor
responding to the Russian occupation of
the Manchurian railway."
