whom men would say nothing against
If they only Knew his heart
of the same quorum next dressed I
tho conference Ho referred to I
statement which he snw printed to
tho effect that the attendance was
not so large in on former occasions
He marveled at such an norton for
thero hail scarcely been a conference
when there was an largo an attend
ance at the opcnlnir teflon Ho had
enjoyed tho remarks that had bean
made by tho elders Generally the
saints have nu understandingof the
doctrines referred to by Elder Hyrum
1 Hmlth and others who hud spoken
during conference Hut there arc
young men growing up among us who
am not evidently Indoctrinated In tho
gospel Ho did not believe that fo
many youilg men would befoul them
selves by using tobacco and drink
splrltuoim liquors if they had always
hind a good example ret before them
at Imf The speaker thought that
our children might more or less easily
forget the lessons taught them at
Sunday schools nnd other organlrn
tons of the Church hut they would
not easily depart from or forget tho
training to which If they are given It
they are subjected nt their homes
Elder Ponropo dwelt upon the opposi
tion which the saints had met with
from tho world They had always been
on the defensive rather than the of
fensive They have Indetd been mors
or less ngrcuslv In th uso of weapons
not those of the hand hut thus of the
head and tho heart They hnvo directed
rected attention to the written word of
the Church and to the lives of Its lead
orsVe were In the beginning with the
Father the speaker declared IJy the
beginning we mean tho beginning of
things which pertain to this earth
Christ the First born and Lucifer
were thero ItkewlH Lucifer and his
evil companions have been ever pre
sent with men on the earth Christ
confronted these while he was among
Inn In tho Temptation the spirit of
light was ought face to face with
tho spirit of darkness According to
tho Scriptures Satan IB 1 person an
Individual TIme spirit of darkness Is
abroad In the world seeking to have
a placo In tho heart Ho sought to
touch Christ but there was nothing In
Him to touch And so h endeavors to
seek place In the heart of sinful mal
How does this spirit work Through
the hearts generally of those who nrj
Inclined to evil Hut It often attacks
our children I may ontcr our home
nnd endeavor to Introduce liiharmony
Let us continue our work of light
Elder Pcnroso referred to tho notion
among some of our young men that
men In the Church may not pocses
the ramo civil and political rights as
others nut the speaker thought that
buch n notion Is wrong No leader In
tho Church has any more of such a
right than any other min but he has
no less Wo ore all equal In this fensc
I Is only In this meaning that we arc
Ha admonished the paints to retain
tho freedom with which the gospel hal
made us free Shall wo not remain

we not stand by the servants of God

Seventy seventh Semi Annual
Session of the Saints Has
Passed Into History
lemmi tile and Tiilieriinclo Illork Packed
With Humanity and Stirring Ocr
Mow Mcollngs Held
Conference Is over once again and
thu seventyseventh semiannual ces
sion of the saInts has passed Into his
tory yesterday the final day of the
gathering tho weather wax Ideal al
most summer like In Its warmth and
radiance Tho temple and tabcrnacl
block was packed with humanity and
the usual overflow meetings were held
and enjoyed too by those who were
unable to secure admission to the tab
ernacle or Assembly hal Accounts of
each meeting of the day regular nnd
overflow follow
Conference was resumed at 10
oclock The choir sang the hymn
Glorious things of thee aro spoken
Zion city of our God
Prayer was offered by Elder Byron
Sessions The choir sang tho anthem
From Afar Gracious Lord
was the rst speaker of this session of
the conference lie rejoIced ho bald In
being connected with tho work of God
Hu nad btcn born In the Church of
Mormon parentage and the gospel was
to liini tIn choicest thing In life He
knew that the Prophet Joseph was In
fjlred of heaven to bring forth a work
that would revolutionize the world of
religion That work though small nt
piteeut would grow till it covered the
earth and extended Its blessed Inltu
ence Into all the affair of men
We are the children of Gent Those
Who do not too with us icllgluuflly are
yet our brothers and sisters Inc Mor
monism teaches us to regard amid treat
them cut such Ht Paul said on one oc
casion that Alexander the coppersmith
had done him Injury and prayed the
Lord to < ell wIth him according U his
works Elder Nlbley thought tie doc
trine of Christ In this relation the bet
ter that namely which required us to
return good for evil Thla was what
the Latterday Saints had always en
deavored to keep In mind Monnonlsm
teaches that all men have equal rights
us Individual Ever man hal the
n e to work or not to work If he
chooses He has tho right to Join any
society or to Induce others peaceably
tu Join parties but the Church teaches
that no mnn him the right to prevent
another man who wants to work from
working There is nothing In tho doc
trines of Monnonlfin that Interferes
wIth the rights of Individuals The
sruiker hero r ferel to I strike that
occunpd here I few yoara ago In the
coal mines and contrasted It with one i
that nro e across the borders of the
state bringing out the point that the
moral Inilueneo of some leading breth
ren brought about pence in the Utah
strike Ho wished that tho managers
of the larger business concerns In Utah
might be able to ceo better the moral
Influence for good to laborers and em
ployer alike of tli leaders of the
Elder Nlbley had accompanied Presl
d < ni Smith 01 his European trip He
hut come homo with the thought he
declared that Mormonlsm was becom
ing better understood every day Thire
las a greater need than ever for our
oung mm who would prepare them
whiS for missionary work The Lord
had cnclnred that he would visit the
ciiiih ttlh tIre and vapors of smoke If
mel would not hearken to the voice ft
tin iiutHlonarles Elder Nlbley testified
ti his satisfaction with which the af I
falin of tho Church were managed
of the quorum of apostles iwxi ad
dressed the conference During tha
pant six months he had Isled 15 tIlt
irrent Makes and formed the uccualnt
cure of hnmrd of valiant men and
women He loved the saints the men I i
and women who loved the religion
which he loved He wished he said to I
become acquainted with as many o
tho saints as possible and he Itkewlne
wished them to lear his spirit and his
intentions so that he might be able to
do some good nmong the people
Elder Richards believed that one of
the main sources of spiritual food
which we hove lies in the thoughts that
lire suggested to UM by the remarks we
S hear from ubbath to Sabbath from
the pulpits even though those thoughts
ran In a different channel from those
of the speaker These Ideas the speak
er thought Nhould be cherished IIH the
fruits of the sermons which wo hear
Ho spoke of the mean by which
wo are to be nefltted by what we
learn This means lies In living the
law according to the light we have
The atonement of Christ would not be
entirely effective In our Ilea unless
we endeavored to walk according to
his word So I II with the word of
Instructions we received from time to I
time In our iouTercnces We must re
duce there teaclilncH to practise In our I
dally hiss else tiielr only nftct M far
> wo i concerned would ho to ndd
to our v jiidemnatlon The speaker bo
llcved that there Is a tendency among
tlmsalnts to disregard more or less the
teachings tlmt arc given them If
they lived according to their best
knowledge there would bo no saloons
among Ut there would be no ue for
tea nnd coffee and tobacco there would
be less of I crize for amusement our
meetlnghouxps would bo so crowded as
a require larger ones new temples
would haxe to he erected In order to
satIsfy the demands for work for the
dead no difficulty would then be ex
perienced In getting plenty of mis
sionaries to preach the gospel to tho
world nnd there would be I spirIt of
forgiveness and faith such as fuw peo
ples have ever felt Why is I asked
tho speaker that we do not do this
Why do we not live to our highest
convictions nud light of the gospel
In It because we have not been blessed
of Mic Lord No I Is not ax this con
gregation can testify There Is a de
gree of hypocrlcy anti deceit among us
When our enemies otinrgu UH with
this and kindred qualities there Is too
much truth In tho charges And yet
It Is not a great deal that God has re
quired o us nnd It Is moreover of the
higher benefit to UI But Instead of
doing nil that He has required us to do
We choose often to stoop to petty MhlS
that deprive nurelv of blessings In
thin life and the other
We Ire too susceptible Altogether to
tho influences that surround in The
Lord has commanded un to core
out of Babylon And yet we follow
after her In theories and fashions Wo
ntnilate with those who would do us
Injury adopt their Ideas ann follow
their practises When will we leave
off this Instead of lending we are
led In too many households we see
poodle dogs pussy cats birds and
other things that can IIP tethered by a
trln in order that tho mothers may
attend clubs whereas the mother
should be rearing children and training
them In the fear of God The Lester
dny SaInts should see to It that these
cvl them practises are not adopted among

The choir then sang the anthem
Rouse 0 Ye Mortals
of tho same quorum was the conclud
ing speaker He referred to what
President Smith had said regarding tha
fact that Christ wus time king of the
spiritual kingdom which the saint be
lieved nnd also to what Elder Nlbley
Mid concerning the purposes of the
Church He marveled he Bald that
any one could make the charge against
un of wishing to establish an oriental
despotism In America Anxious as he
wn to credit even one with honesty
In believing
he nevertheless mid difficulty
lieving that those who made such false
charges were sincere
What Is Mormonlsm asked Beer
Whitney Ve have henrd much of It
during this conference We have here
been taught that men are agents unto
themselves to act according to their
Inclinations Why then should Mor
monlsm bo thought to seek Us own
overthrow by teaching such doctrines
no would Inevitably bring about Its de
The Prophet Joseph taught that at
tho council In heaven wa were alt pres
ent and that wo were In he cxrclse
of our agncy there 1 was Lucifer tho
son of the morning who Introduced the
Idea by which the free agency of men
might bo dJo It Is who In
mortality seeks to take from man his
freedom to act for himself The spirit
of evil Is the author Jf thl doctrine
and to overthrow free chinches and free
governments Christ on the contrary
Is the author o thu perfect law of lib
erty otherwise called the gospel and
It Is tho spirit of Christ that endeav
ors by all proper means to preserve
this Precious heritage to man Does
all this bear any resemblance to tyran
ny or despotism
Elder Whitney traced the history
of the gospel from Adam to Noah
Abraham and the Christian dispensa
tion outlined tho work of Christ and
lon apostles to pot up tho Church In
Palestine und on this continent
Lat of til continual tho speaker
the Prophet Joseph wai called upon
to bring about a restoration of tho gos
pel this perfect law of liberty lIe
was 0 champion of freedom of thought
and action Yet this man and his sue
ceswirs In this grand Idea of human
liberty are accused of establishing tx
tyranny men who stand as tho em
bodiment of free agency
Not only however has this spirit
rested on the prophets and apostles of
the Church In all ages It has rested
al > o upon peels sages and statesmen
of our own and other times Luther
had It when he defied tho council at
Worms Cromwell and his Ironsides
had It when IIP overthrew 1 tyrannical
government In England William of Or
ange had I the embattled farmers
of EmeraonH poom had it when they
ii their shots heard round tho
world Jefferson had It when lie wrote
with pen of ttnme that all men nvs
equal and taught them principles of
human liberty
