Remember that If you do not register
you cannot have the pleasure of voting
the American ticket.
It must make Brother Heber J. Grant
unhappy ryot to be able to be here these
days to make things worse.
Ted Smoot enjoys the distinction of
iWngr the only candidate for Governor
sustained at the Tabernacle.
I Conference la ended, but Democrats
among: the brethren will receive further
religious Instruction before election.
After the election has given them bet
ter vision, various aspiring gentlemen
will see more to admire In the Amerl-
can party.
I Apostle Smoot trusts that when he
next addresses a general conference, he
will be In a position to speak as the
Governor of Utah.
Having been sustained by the
brethren. Apostle Smoot bespeaks for
Senator Smoot tho same kind of treat
ment in November.
I Brother Moyle may bo a good man,
with some qualifications for office, but
how can wo be sure of it, since no high
church official has endorsed him?
Apostle Smoot sincerely and unre
servedly advises the brethren lo pat
ronize the manufacturing concerns in
which Reed Smoot 13 Interested.
I Brother Cutler heartily endorses the
remarkn of. Brother Smoot In favor of
patronizing home Industries, being In
terested In tho sale of home-made wool
en goods, himself.
Much has been said about Mormon
Democrats, but a good many propose
to be as intensely loyal to their party
as they can be when supporting the
Smoot nominees.
Chairman Spry would like to know
how anyone can expect to beat Cutler,
when Monhon Democrats are taking
such an lntjat In religion as they
showed at conference.
Observing the unanimity with which
the brethren voted in conference,
Apostle Smoot must have wondered
how any brother could object to such
beautiful harmony at tho polls.
Democrats must now concede that
there is church influence In, the cam
paign, Apostle Smoot having been al
lowed to advocate in conference the Re
publican principle of protection to
homo industries.
Tho conference was brought In with
a storm and let out with a storm. And
H Smootlem makes of the conference It
1 self a storm center which everybody
watcheir with the liveliest interest for
1 political developments.
1 Aponilc Smoot, also, It appears, haa
taken up the refrain, and made ecorn
ful reference to "our enemleo," In his
address yesterday to the conference In
the Tabernacle. He evidently, deep
down In hln heart, considers those who
j are not "of us" to be outsiders and
enemies. And yet he looks to those
eame "enemies" to retain him in his
Bfcat in the United States Sonate, and to
carry the financial burden of his busi
ness enterprises. Apostle Smoot lo a
heavy load upon Utah, and that load Is
getting heavier and heavier with every
new development, and with every move
that he makes.
Among those who were sustained, of
tho general authorities- of the church,
at tho Mormon conference yesterday,
we note the name of Apostle Reed
Smoot He Is a prophet, 6eer. and
revelator, among the rest.
This means that his church approves
what he has been doing, and that his
quorum sustains him in it. He is
fully supported by his church In using
the church organization as his political
machine, and bringing to bear upon
the faithful the power of his apostolic
authority to control their action In poll-tics.
There can, therefore, be no further
controversy an to this matter. Apostle
Smoot has made the church his instru
ment in politics; he has used the church
organization an his political organiza
tion; he has used the church channels,
the channels established and designed
for convcylnir the church direction and
counsel, for tho transmission of his
political directions, and In precisely the
same way as he would transmit church
directions, orders and information; he
has sent his political instructions to the
bishops exactly as he would send his
ecclesiastical instructions; ho has used
the church orcan as his political or
gan, making It clear in the usual
verbiage, so well understood by tho
flocks under his spiritual control, that
he as an apostle wanted certain politi
cal results achieved.
After that, which Is so well known,
for the church to sustain him Is for the
church to assume his fight for him, and
to Insure tho success of his political
campaign. It is now a campaign that
the church cannot afford to lose. It
must elect Cutlor or be forever dis
credited In the house of Its friends.
Now, If a man Is a prophet, seer, and
revelator, that Is what he is. And he
13 so all tho time. He cannot be a
prophet, seer, and revelator in the fore
noon, and an ordinary politician und
money-grabber In tho afternoon, or the
reverse. It Is a thing that lasts, that
Is constant, or else it Is a mere shifting
attribute, to be put on or off at will, as
he would change his clothes. This,
however, Is an Inconceivable burlesque
on sacred things.
We conclude, therefore, that Apostle
Smoot Is a prophet, seer and revela
tor all the time. As such, in the re
cent campaign for nomination on the
Republican ticket, he. know, as a
prophet, all the time who would get
the nomination; as a seer, he knew
where to strike to get delegations and
what delegates to see in the interest
of his political ken; and as a revelator,
he knew preolsely what to say to an
unwilling delegate to make him see the
right thing to do, even though that
delegate, without the spirit of the
apostolate, might havo seen things in
quite another light.
Those who are mere politicians,
therefore, will note what they are go
ing up against when they oppose
Apostle Smoot. It Is not ho alone they
must beat, but the church-ln-polltlcs,
and the bandying back and forth of
the name of the Lord.
It is a hard game; but the Americans
of Utah are used to a hard game, and
will beat it. But they want the people
of the country at large to know the
facts, and the real situation.
It is surprising to see the manifesta
tions of good will to the American party
frcm co many of the young men In the
.Mormon church who realize the need
of tL v party; who know that the
pledges of the church loaders that they
would keep out of politics and leave the
people to act as to that In their own
way without ecclesiastical Interference,
have not been kept; and who are de
termined to stand manfully for good
faith and the right. The Influence of
these young men must be far-reaching
and powerful for good In Utah. The
times call for the most strenuous ef
forts on the part of all who see thq
light, to make that light shine into
every nook and dark corner of the State.
We suppose that there can be no real
difference of opinion on the point that
automobile racing should be stopped.
Take the races on Long Island on Sat
urday, for example. The lives of scores
of persons were put in Jeopardy, one
was injured, and one was killed In the
contest. Tho machine of one man was
so close to a railroad train twice that
it seemed a miracle that he was not
killed. Talk about prize-fighting! It
isn't a clrcumstanco for brutality and
peril compared wjth automobile racing.
And tho nerve-racking strain of a three
hundred mile automobile race is so far
beyond that of a prize flght that thero is
In fact no comparison; the odds in hu
manity, healthfulncsa and ethlce are all
in favor of the pugs. And yet the prize
fight is suppressed by law, and automo
bile races are allowed!
A Mr. N. n. Sutherland writes a cort
of hodge-podge letter from this city to
the Live Stock Report of Chicago, which
appearo In that paper of September 30th.
The letter haa no value, being merely
the echo of what was pumped into tho
writer of It -while ho was here, and It
has come out In rather incoherent and
heterogenous form, for the most part:
but in ono statement, apparently con
tributed by Mr. Jeise M. Smith of Lay
ton it Is clear, sound, and indisputable.
After enupicrating some of the wide
reaching buelness enterprises and con
trols of secular affairs by the church,
the summary concludes, referring to the
church. "It is naturally not without ltt
political Influence, and If Mormono arc-
favored by Mormons, eo far as the dis
tribution of ofllcc goes, it Is no unusual
condition." Not without political influ
ence! Well, we should say not! Ask
Smoot, or Cutler, or any of the boys
who have their fingers on the wires?
through the pulling of which that Influ
ence Is brought to bear. It might not
be amiss to ask Governor Wells, alro,
who was an Interested (though hardly
a delighted) spectator of jhe way It was
done Just prior to and on the assem
bling of the late unlamcnted Republican
State convention; possibly he also would
agree that the church "la not without
Influence In politics."
This editorial Is Intended especially
for Lhe Information of men, but If there
Is any woman In Utah who believes In
the soul-degrading crime of polygamy,
let her ikln this.
Thlo Is not for her, but for her sisters
who believe In tho home and family In
one husband and ono wife, and no more.
The woman who believes In the homo
and family as God Intended them to be,
chould register op the morning of Octo
ber 11 and vote the American ticket
against church Interference in politics.
If there be a woman In Utah who con
dones the unrighteous, polygamous life
confessed by President Joseph F. Smith
in his sworn testimony before tho Sena
torial committee, let her hide her head
In shame and avoid this.
This Is not Intended for her. but for
her sisters who believe in tho honor and
the purity of the home and in American
"Women who believe In the honor and
purity of the home, let them arise early
on the morning of October 11 and regis
ter, for then they may file tholr solemn
and virtuous protest against polygamy
and church Interference In politics.
If there be any woman in Utah who
believes vvlth President Joseph F. Smith
that his offense against tho laws of God
and of hlu country havo been wlnkedat
and overlooked by tho people of Utah,
then this Is not for her, but for her sis
ter who should be righteously Indignant
at the slurs cast upon her by the testi
mony of President Smith.
Let these 'women who blush at the In
sult In the charge that they have for
given and winked at this crime against
womanhood, register on October 11, that
they may make their repudiation of
President Smith's charges count at the
ballot box In November.
If there be any woman in Utah so feeble-minded
that she overlooks this dis
grace to her sex, and feels, with Joseph
F. Smith, that the wrongs of polygamy
are not offensive or violative of any law,
and do not cry to high heaven for re
dress, let her avoid this review of the
degradation of women In a Christian
This is not for her. She belongs to tho
Orient, and is not for this Christian
Tills Is for her sister sho who believes
in the glories of womanhood and in the
uplifting of tho sex to the "plane that
God Intended woman to occupy aa the
mate and companion of man, not his
toy, not his better third or fourth or
fifth, not his truckling slave.
No, tills is not for the woman whose
soul. is chained In the shackles of polyg
amy. Sho lives in the bondage of the
dark ages. She cannot realize the light
and liberty of the civilization of tho
twentieth century.
This 13 for the woman who believes in
the redemption of her sex; who, if she
be in polygamy, Is heart-ill and wishes
to get out of it; who would put away tho
soul shackles of the past for the liberty
of the future 1thls Is for her.
Let this woman bestir her benumbed
faculties, send the Joy-pulsing blood to
the aching heart, and feel that sho Is a
true woman the most glorious creature
that God ever created and register on
October 11, 12, or 18, and then, at the
polls in November file her solemn pro
test against the tyrant rule over women
and against church domination In poll
tics, by voting the American ticket.
If you don't register, you can't vote.
It is natural that the survivors of the
Gen. Slocum calamity should be dis
contented with the finding of the au
thorities in that great horror, and It
must bo a comfort to them to receive
tho President's assurance, recently
given, that the matter shall be probed
to the bottom, and full Justice done.
It Is a defect of our administration
of public affairs that there seems no
way to reach the really guilty ones
when such a terror happens. Often,
they escape altogether, unless perhaps
a censuro for which they have no con
cern; and when there Is a punishment
It is either shamefully inadequate or
else falls on persons who are not really
lo blame: on the captains or executive
managers, passing by the highn- olll
clals whose economies, disregard of
rules and of proper precautions, and
whose reckless instructions, were the
real cause of the accident.
Rotten llfe-preservcns, a cheaply
hired, Inefficient crew, the absence of a
fire screen, dcfectlvo appliances for
handling the boat; are no fault of the
captain or his aids; such are the neg
lect of the officers and directors of the
company, and these are so seldom
reached in 'any investigation that they
are practically exempt, no matter how
much their scandalous economies or
ruthless neglect have been the direct
cauBe of the loss of life. ,
One never longs so much to see an
exhibition of autocratic power that
would break through all formalities und
reach right for the throats of the direc
tors and managers whose sklntUInt and
cruel regulations have put so nmny
lives in peril and finally g.icrlflred
hundrodn of human beings to their
greedy love of dividends, as when such
a horror is reported. It would of
ten be a comfort to see a despotic hand
stretched 'out to grasp such reckless
villains, put a noose about their necks,
and swing them out Into an eternity of
hellfirc. .
The Utah Democrat, while wholly In
consistent, la not more so than is the
usual Democratic politician. Here It
prints with commendatory pats and
chuckles, Judge King's arraignment of
church Influence In politics, his denunci
ation of those who prostitute their eccle
siastical positions In this direction, and
hln protest against church dominance In
public affairs. At the same time, the
Democrat bitterly arealls ex-Senator
Frank J. Cannon for doing precisely the
samo thing. It's a queer paper, but
that's only another way of saying that
if is Democratic.
The astonishing hysterical whoop of
Gen. Stofssel, In command at Port Ar
thur, which he gave forth on the re
pulse .of the Japanese attack some ten
days ago, ehowa the nervous state of
mind he Is in. The tension must bo
something enormous, trying to the bouI,
or he wouldn't have riven way Hko that.
Evidently he expects nothing lesa than
capture, and Is frenzied with lh Joy of
the unexpected whenever he Is able to
announco a repulse of the enemy. Just
as evidently, he looks forward to a not
distant day when he will no longer be
able to send out anything.
