Inc. Earlo Is rated as one of the most
mm sinous young men In Utah as a mlno
workman. His father Is superintendent of
the mine. It was a common remark that
he worked much harder and was possibly
more faithful than would otherwise havo
been the case had he not his father's In
rt.rjss at heart, as well as his employers'.
O Brlen, too, was rated a verv competent
man No complaint was made against
either until the American partv organiza
tion was effected at Eureka, when Farns
worth, who has small knowledge of tho
actual capacity of the employees, was
communicated with and telephoned that
tho men be discharged "on the spot."
A part of O'Brien's letter, which Earle
says Is a fair statement, except that It
makes him more prominent than he would
desire, follows. After enumerating the
work ho and Earle were accustomed to
do. he says:
"Still you claim religion and politics

ment of men in tho Bullion-Beck mine.
But your foreman. A. S. Anderson, says
different. Ho told a prominent Republi

by you for being members of the Ameri

further says that both Earle and O'Brien
wcro each doing two men'ii work and he
says that the company will havo to got
four men to replace them, and he knows
what ho says Is true. Of course It's true,

animals from gutting mixed.
Hero am I parading around over tho

that if they don't vote that way they
will be thrown out of the church by the
scruff of tho neck and then you go and

We modem men of God ought to know
that. Tou don't seem to get any straight

do. why don't you print in your delectable

That's what we want to keep quiet and

Here I vc been mingling with the Saints
of Zlon and enjoying the inspiration felt

and print that church influence Is split

Bill Spry. If you could go out and soak
your head until after tho campaign, it
would be a good thing, but I don't sup

Why, of course, "church Influence has
terrors for the sensible citizen." That's
tho only kind of citizen that It docs have
any terrors for. That's why they organ

dubs who nin't in on the graft, who pay

Brother Cutler Got an Idea.
But It wasn't as bad as I thought.
Brother Cutler had merely got a few
Ideas into hJs head calculated to breed
suspicion, coldness and distrust. He Invl
been out traveling over the State and
returned to Salt Lake convinced that If
the church didn't throw out Its grappling
hooks and haul In the Mormon vots ho
wouldn't stand any more chance of elec

Naturally, Brother Smoot was agitated.
Brother, Spry was irritated and Brother
Fussy was exasperated. I was scared
yellow, with green trimmings. Tho three
brothers had tried to ahow Brother Cut

Brother Spry's good Intentions toward
Mormon Democrats would tclnch him for
the gubernatorial Job, and I had been
summoned to give "artistic verisimilitude
to their otherwise bold and unconvincing

one thing that I can do.
Brother Cutler Worried.

No answer was required to this, but be

"Sure," said Brother Fussy.
"What do you think. Bishop Winker?"
arJcod Brother Cutler, turning to me. "I ,
guess It Is better to yield than to flee."
"Sure," said I, unconsciously quoting
Brother Fuhs's expressive diction. "A
d d sight that is to say. much better,"
So Brother Culler will stay.
Ah, Brother Penrose, take a lesson from
this and never lose faith in the Lord.
Brother Cutler's determination .to stay
proves that thero is dawning upon the
snowy hilltops of Utah the bright and ra
diant star of absolute obedience to the
anointed servants of God.

"Deserot Uews" Brags That Mormon

but for Politics Too.
To tho Editor of The Tribune:
There are people In Utah and elsewhere
who would like to dictato to tho Latter
day Saints what their religion shall con
sist of. . . Thoy dcmar.d that tho "Mor
mon" faith shall bo entirely- spiritual.
That it shall be divested of all temporali
ties. That Its preachers and authorities
shall limit their functlona to erf' 's for
"the saving of souls." In other ords,
that the Church of Jesus Christ of Lattcr
I day Saints shall be reduced to tho status
of a sect, makingSone moro addition to tho
number of conflicting denominations, a
more singing, praying, preaching society.
Deaeret News. October 16.
Tho foregoing carries between the lines
the distinct llavor of a "dlvlno" utterance.
In the peculiar 3tylo of tho chief high
priest The oracle contains both a threat
and a defiance, and is a distinct announce
ment that the promises of political non
interference mado to obtain Statehood are
Never Sought to Dictate.
There are no people in Utah, nor at any
timo in tho past havo there been, who
havo sought to dictato what tho Mormon
religion should consist of beyond the two
conditions of polygamous cohabitation and
dominant Interference in purely political
affairs, if It bo granted that tho high of
ficers of the church have really abandoned
the polygamous condition as an institu
tion, tho foregoing announcement can
have no other bearing than tho one that
the mission of the Latter-day saints Is
political, as that Is tho only condition
witli which tho non-Mormon population
has oxpressed any concern.
No one will object, or has objected to
an exercise of church authority in tem
poral affairs so long as the results affect
only Mormons who have to subscribe to
It. But the exercise of temporal authority
not only affects all those who are not
Mormons Individually, but strikes at tho
very' root of American institutions, whon
cver it is directed to tho control of tho
franchlso of the masses constltuUng Its
That this Is exactly what Is intended In
tho Machlavclian oracle Is apparont to
all who havo observed tho use tho church
authorities have made of tholr power of
control namely, to concentrate the ole
monts of power nnd of wealth into its own
hands, and for tho private benefit of tho
first presidency and npostlcs, who consti
tute a self-creative and Irresponsible board
a royal family by succession and de
scent Concentrated Temporal Power.
The president of tho Mormon church Is
also president of olxtecn lending financial
and money-making corporations, and tho
opostles and leading Mormons, who havo
.u.....v.Uv., k.ik oi spiritual ainj
temporal power among themselves havo
grown wealthy through the Influence thov
have- exerted upon tho religious fervor of
tne Mormon masses, who have steadily
been growing poorer through tho enor
mous taxation levied by these church au
thorities. It will be useless for President Smith to
ndvlso his people not to sell their llttlo
farms to their "enemies," while they aro
confronted with cxhnuated acres. State
county, school township taxes plus 10 nor
cent upen their gross Incomes to an Insti
tution that takes it without compensation
and gives nothing In return, except ad
vice Farms Offerod for Sale.
Let any Gentile go into any of the val
leys In Utah except those Immediate to
Salt Lake City and Ogden. where Gentllo
capital and Gentllo energy has afforded
lnrgor opportunities, and attompt to pur
chase a farm. Ho will havo SO per cent of
the farms' offered him at prices that con
sUtuto thorn real bargains. Tho anxloty to
sell Is persistent and Intense, and nono ap
pear to buy except Gentiles.
Such a medieval system of taxation
would overload nnd ruin any industry sur
rounded with modern conditions.
It Is not surprising that tho present gen
eration of Mormons Is becoming restless
and eyeing with askance tho proposition
that would hold them a peculiar people in
Isolation from tho currents of American
thought and civilization, while the Insti
tution at the heftd, claiming- oxlslonco
