MORMONISM HAS A
PRACTICAL BASIS
Deals Directly With All Phases
of Human Sorrows and
Delights
ELDER ASHTON SPEAKER
EXPOUNDS THE DOCTRINE TO A
TOURIST AUDIENCE
In dealing with the practical problems
of no verty vice and crime the Mormon
church stands without a peer in this
agV declared Elder Ellas Conway Ash
ton at the regular monthly tourist service
at the Tabernacle yesterday afternooA
ihern were about 1000 persons present
1 he discussion t the doctrines of Mor
monism and the organ recital by Prof
J J MeOMlan were thoroughly enjoyed
Elder Ashtcn quoting from the seventh
Chapter of Matthew took for his text

In talk followed a prayer by F W
H trst rom
I know of no better criterion said
Elder Ashton referring to hia text by
which the devours and coreligionists of
ilorniouism want o be judgocl than by
thtir work I recently read in an en
cyclopedia that Mormonism was a sect
founded upon revelations to Joseph
Sniiih the prophet and certain records
thai were givii to him by angelic hands
TMi tin Mormon faith is not founded
a > ne upon the record of a people who
lived upon this continent long ago any
111Ir than the Methodist the Preaby
ttrian Congn rational or any other faith
Is founded upon the prayer books from
whiU I they derive some of their teach
ing
Mormonism Is I History

1 > i > r pretensions than that and with

WORLD CRUEl TO
BRIGHTEST MINDS
The Rev Dr Short Cites Ex
amples of Geniuses Who
Were Abused
PLEADS FOR GENTLENESS
CRITICISM SHOULD BE TEM
PERED WITH KINDLINESS
In the First Methodist EpeJcopal
church yesterday the Rev Dr FrancIs
Burgette Short preached on The Gen
LionesS of God His text wa II Sam
uel xxil36 Thy gentleness hath made
me great In the course or his ser
mon he said
We must keep in mind the text It
sounds rather unusual We are not ac
customed to hearing such a statement
dad at first observation it may seem un
tide And yet here it is and I present
it 0 you in neither a twisted nor dis
connected manner
The misconception of the old Greek
philosophers have been proved even
upon the people of this country in this
that God views with stoical indiffer
ence and unsympathetic concern the
sorrows and struggles of men Men
have thought about God and have
placed him upon a cold marble throne
somewhere in the vast universe and
have thought that from that throne he
directs the movements of men and
things without feeling without con
cern without compassion and without
love But my God is not so My God
is my Father He not only sits upon a
throne he smiles sympathetically upon
me at his footstool and points the way
for me to enjoy a seat at his right hand
He is not only the high and holy one
he is also the gentle one his heart
burns and beats with parental concern
for his every struggling child and needy
creature
The Gentleness of God The Prophet
Isaiah had felt its touch and in por
traying7 the character of the Christ the
Son of God said A bruised reed shall
he not break and smoking flax shall
he not quench he shall bring forth
judgment unto truth The gentleness
of God Christ revealed it and de
clared he that hath seen me hath seen
the father The gentleness of Christ
was because the gentleness of God is
and the gentleness of Jesus was the
only perfect example of which history
speaks Won and Held People
Behold how he attracted held and
won the people unto him Some came
because of his miracles some because
of his wisdom Children climbed into
his bosom the sinner struggled to view
him and the brokenhearted cried unto
him because they discovered his gentle
ness He hugged the children to his
heart he spoke words of pardon to the
sinner he looked with compassion upon
the multitude and poured the balm of
consolation upon the sorrowing
How unlike this old world is this
gentleness of God How almost heart
lessly it has ever treated its benefac
tors Some one said the world will not
believe in Its real heroes until it has
crucified them Much truth here With u
what inconsideration and harshness it
passes upon the acts of mn How
it swings the lash of criticism and de
nunciation upon the motives of men
What havoc and destruction have been
wrought by the heartless harshness of
men upon their fellows
Columbus makes known his dream
of a shorter route to India and the peo
ple call him crazy Galileo says the
earth revolves and he is imprisoned
Burbank speaks of seedless fruit and
the community says send him to the
madhouse Pasteur and Hehnemann
advance their theories and some of
their own profession would expel them
Henry Drummond directs the thought
of the world into a new channel and
old school theologians brand him as
skeptic Some one seeks to discover the
north pole or to sail in the air and we
wise ones say Impossible And none
but heroes bighearted men could have
stemmed the tide of opposition while
many of the more gentlehearted have
fallen crushed by the harshness of the
times in which they lived
Dantes Cruel Fate
Do you recall what Italy gave Dante
for his immortal poem Exile Did not
England give the author of Pilgrims
Progress imprisonment Were not the
BrowMings ridiculed for years What
befellthe liberator of four millions of
slaves Somebody shot him and some
body is always ready to denounce and
nound and murder men of genius those
that live ahead of their time Joseph
William Turner ranking now as
among the best painters of modern
times who founded almshouses for un
fortunate artists and who gave to Eng
land almost one hundred of his best
paintings which now compose the
Turner room in the National Gallery
Londonthis man was for years the ob
ject of ridicule his paintings being
called mere color blotches until with
a wounded spirit he passed away His
critics are largely forgotten but the
name of Turner in the corner of a land
scape or upon The Wreck or Crossing
the Brook is worth thousands of dol
lars because they reveal the soul of
genius and gentleness
Look yet again at the son of the Uv
ery man He died while his star was yet
ruling and he died because of poor
health and the heartless criticisms
visited upon him John Keats is the
only pure Greek in all English litera
ture From him we learn that a thing
of beauty is a joy forever He brings
us In his Ode to a Nightingale that
charming picture Those lightwinged
Dryads of the trees A few days be
fore his death he said he felt the daisies
growing over him and for his own
epithaph wrote Here lies one whose
name was writ in water What hast
ened the end of such a genius The hoe
tile criticisms bitter acorn and unre
lenting jeers which were poured upon
him by two periodicals of his day
What awful havoc bitter grief and
untimely deaths this torrent of harsh
ness hath wrought How it obscures
the otherwise brilliant career of Car
lyle and how it has prevented the
arger and better Influence of both na
tions and men The truth should be
void but let it be told In a spirit of I
kindliness The achievements of men
I
should be criticised but let it be done
with an absence of personal animosity
let It be done because of a feeling of
kindliness and service and it will be
without hurt because gentleness will
take out of it the poison
This then is the message for you
and for me this morning more gentle
ness for this generation for gentleness
Is an imperative element for greatness

TEMPTED TO BOlDNESS
BY WOMENS DIAMONDS
Diamonds valued at 4000 worn by
two women guests at the Belmont ho
tel aroused the cupidity of two men
whose effort to obtain possession of the
gems about 4 oclock Sunday morning
was frustrated by George Reeves of
Mueller Reeves proprietors of the
Belmont A policeman was summoned
but no arrests were made
The women had dined at the College
Inn cafe and were returning to the ho
tel when two men accosted them The
m n followed them to the hotel where
they were forbidden to enter The
women had entered the hotel office
when the men came in and Inquired for
rooms To escape them the women
went into the parlor but the men
promptly followed One of the women
had laid a valuable muff on the sofa
One of the men took it and went to the
St Cede lodging house where he put
it in the bottom of a trunk He then
returned to the Belmont By this time
the women missed the muff Their ac
cusations that the men had stolen the
muff were so vehement that George
Reeves was aroused The men started
to leave but Reeves detained them be
ing compelled to strike one of them
several times to prevent his going A
policeman was then called and after
some parleying the man who had the
muff went to the St Cecllo and re
turned with it
A short time before she laid the muff
down the owner had been carrying a
considerable sum of money and some
diamonds in the muff Both women
were confident that the men meant to
hold them up for the valuable gems they
wore but did not get the chance as the
hotel was so close to the heart of the
city
i PIOCHE lOOKING GOOD
Mining Engineer Believes That a
Great Production Will Come
in Near Future
James W Abbott a wellknown raining
engineer of Pioche Nev arrived in the
city yesterday on a weeks business trip
Mr Abbott speaks optimistically of the
present conditions and future possibili
ties in the Ploche district and says that
big developments may be looked for in
the near future
Pioche I am sure said Mr Abbott
wilt be one of the greatest wealthpro
ducing districts in the world within two
years The recent strike at the Golden
Prince mine where work was begun on
seemingly barren ground but which de
veloped a vein on the 600foot level that
produced 100 feet of ore out of 126 feet
traversed shows the possibilities of the
district
At the Prince and the Golden Prince
the serious handicap lies in the trans
portation facilities It is expected that
a spur track will be extended from Pioche
to the mines The line has already been
surveyed
The consolidation of the OhioKentucky
and the NevadaUtah interests into what
will be known as I understand the Con
solidated Pioche Mining company will re
sult in a big enterprise

CITY Of PRESENT IS
UNliKE DAYS OF 74
Walter Hearn British consulgeneral
at San Francisco accompanied by E
Curwen of Brighton England was a
visitor in Salt Lake yesterday He la
returning te his station after a leave
of absence spent In England
This was Mr Beams first visit to
the city but Mr Curwen found much
to observe in the past M years growth
of Salt Lake Mr Curwert whose sta
tion has been such as to give him full
opportunity to indulge in his hobby of
globe trotting first visited the west
in 1871 when be hunted big game in the
Rockies In 1874 he visited Salt Lake
Yesterday the new Salt Lake brought
Mr Curwen into a reminiscent mood
I expected to find a great change in
the city over the conditions of 34 years
ago but anticipated nothing so marvel
ous Compared to today Salt Lake in
1874 was a mere straggling village
There were only two hotels then as I
remember and there was more dignity
in the title hotel than in the structures
I recall the old Walker house and the
Townsend The temple waifs were then
only a few feet high The presence of
soldiers and the Emma mine trouble
were creating quite a stir at that time
Your buildings are magnificent and
your streets the equal of any In the
world
Mr Hearn and Mr Curwen visited
various points of interest including the
tabernacle Mr Curwen will spend a
few days In San Francisco before re
crossing the continent and will sail
from New York January 8 to pass the
winter in Egypt

Chicago lawyer Declined the Ap
pointment but Was Asked to
Reconsider
Washington Dec 5W J Calhoun
of Chicago it was innounoed here to
night has declined the appointment of
minister to China which was tendered
him by President Taft
Chicago Dec William J Calhoun
tonight denied a report from Washing
ton that he had declined to accept the
appointment as minister to China He
did decline about ten days ago but
since then had been induced to recon
sider the matter
Mr Calhoun explained that he had
been induced by Secretary of State
Knox to reconsider his determination
not to accept the appointment
Two weeks ago in Washington I dis
cussed with Secretary Knox the matter
of accepting the ministry to China
said Mr Calhoun The offer was made
to me and I asked for time in which to
consider it I came back to Chicago
and early last week I telegraphed Mr
Knox that I could not accept I re
ceived a reply urging me to reconsider
my decision Finally on Friday I wired
Secretary Knox stating that if my ac
ceptance were urgently desired by the
President I would consider the offer
further
Since my last communication to Mr
Knox I have heard nothing further In
the matter and do not wish to state at
this time what I shall do because the
post has not been formally tendered me
by the President President Taft was not
in Washington upon the occasion of my
visit there and I have had no direct
communication with him concerning
this matter
Mr Calhoun spent much of the day in
consultation with his law partners at
his office Among his friends the opinion
prevailed that he would go to China

in the First Methodist church last
night Hill subject was The Curse of
the Modern Saloon but during his dis
course he ottered a remedy for lawless
ness In cities saying
I have been asked since I came here
my solution of gambling and street
walking I answer Hire a new chief
of police If that wont do hire a new
mayor All police power Is summary
power and if you let the law violator
the gambler the soiled woman and the
army of law violators that thrive off
the nonenforcement of the law under
stand that the police power is going to
be one enforced you will have to get I
a special train to take them out of I
town fast enough
IIIf you dont believe it take a trip I
to Los Angeles and ask the present i
mayor and chief of police We recalled
a mayor for his refusal to enforce the I
I law and hired a new chief of police
Now the dens of Infamy are closed and
I the saloonkeeper who violates the law
loses his license
I say official law violation is the
worst kind of law violation Malfeas
ance In law and nonenforcement of the
law are the two greatest evils in civic
government Official lawlessness is the
most intrigueing and Insidious evil in I
civil government It strikes at the
very foundation of the government and
is anarchy
Mr Warners address was heard by
