thorp l an almost feverlfh anxiety nmonB
tho members for the close of tho RCJlon.
11 Is expei ted that at omo of the-e meet
lnc a nirjfme front dlUne ntithorlty will
come for the direction and guidance of
tho church.
Yettcrday morning the entire1 forenoon
xmis spent b) the head of the church and
his chorcn followers nnd counselors In
consultation.
A the hours of the mornlnfr wore away
there n an earnest lonqlnw on the part
of the delepites to hear from the proceed
lnss. l'rajer for a revelation had been
made and the answer was expected, but
none came, nnd the counAlor came forth
from the contilltntlon itlth no inesaKe
from tho dllnc head of the church for
the edlllcatlon nnd Etildtincu of tho faith
ful on earth.
There nilKht have been some manlfesta.

It not been for nn event trait took place
at the testimony nicotinic during the morn
Iiib, It proved to be one of the most Inter-e-llnir
exercises of the conference. l'arly
In the meeting a sister from Illinois arose
nnd delivered a mi'Mtire from the Huler of
the universe as follows: "The spirit of
the Lord Is deeply Knoved with thee, oh
my people. Yen, verily, I si) unto ve, c
ore becoming proud anil 'tilth headed when
thou shouldst become moie humble and
jc aio thercfoie lommnndeil to bo more
humble that e mav- reielve the blesslnc"
As she ceased speaking Mr. Caiollnc
Salsbury, the nsred islcr of Joseph .Smith,
the prophet nnd first heid of the church,
who was seated In nn easy chilr Jut In
front of the speakers' stnnd, with a ere it
effort arose and lieiran to speak With her
first woid she attracted the closest atten
tion from every one In the hoti'-e. She Is
very old, more thnn '3 vears of time has
she experienced, nnd she stnnds to-day
the only llvlnK pet son who saw the golden
plates from which was translated the Hook
of Mormon. She spoke for h ilf nn hour
and every word she spoke was heard dis
tinctly In every part of the church Her
tory related to the discovery nnd llndlnR
of the plates, the earh trials of the Saints
ond the vexations and ileitis h of Un
church from that time.
It was remarkable for tho fact that It
differed from tho story so often told and
so lone received on the point of the ilnel
insr of the plates. It has ah.is been
otated that Illiani Smith, brother of the
prophet, was with him when he found the
5 late", but this statement was disputed by
Irs. Silsburv, who declared that at that
time there was no one save the wife of the
prophft nnd that Hiram was not there at
nil. Tha discrepancy is expliined by the
members who clnlm tint tho memory of
the acred lady Is faulty and that the old
Btorj Is the conect one.
Her narration of the facts and history.
Bhe said, was by the order and dlieetlon of
the Almlsrhtv for the Interest and Inspira
tion of the church.
Her print ape, the fact that she was to
day the onlv llvlnK witness who ever saw
or handled the Rolden platei nnd was a
membsrs of the llrst Moimon church and
had seen all of tho trials and difficulties
that have fallen to the lot ot the Saint-.,
her apparent Infirmly and the probiblIit
that she would not be at the next conftr
ence. all had their e ffect on the llsteneis
nnd they were moved to tears at the touch
ing; close of the address.
Stor.t of the tiolctcu l'lntes.
(Mrs. Salbbury said:
"I stand before sou n. remnant of the
family that brouRht forth tho sacred rec
ord, to bear mv testimony.
"I can remember the time that this work
commenced, that my brother hail the
vision, that he saw the niiKOl and t liked
xvlth him After be had his tli.st xHlon
he lav on his lied one nlqlit studjInK
what lie had s-oen And his iooiu became
IlKht, and It Rrew liRhtei and liRhter until
tin miRel descended and stood bj Ills bed.
He did not touch the llooi, but ho stood
In the air. He was dressed in white rai
ment, of whiteness lievoml auMlilnR he
hail ever seen in his lit.-, anil had n Ril-
dle about his waist. He nv his hands
ond lists and thi.y were pine and white,
and ho titlUtil with him lie s.ilcl lie was
"Moroni, and that be was sent as a nies
renRer to tell him concerning the record
th t was hidden In the hill ejnmornh,
which was a history of tho people th it
once Inhabited this continent, and also
that it was the pine Rosp. I of Christ. That
the Rospel we iiad had been adulterated,
and this was the pure Rosptl of Jesus
Christ, and would be pieaelud In these
last elnvs. He also talked with him and
told him conceinlnR the piopheUes of
Isaiah, nnd told htm what was coming
upon the earth And he nlo opened the
vision and showed him the hill fomorah,
xvheic the lecords laid, and talked with
him awhile and then ascended. And
while Joseph was still thtnMuR over what
he had seen and what thu aut'el had told
him, he descended .main and stood by his
side, and repeated the same thlnRs, He
told him thi prophceien of Isaiah wen
belns fulfilled and would conn- true and
that this tecoid must be broitRht forth to
the church established In the last tlnjb
for thero was no true ohurch on earth
He ascended aRniu, and then lie descended
the third time; and then my brother said
that the chickens crowed for daj, whonini?
that he had convctsed with the antrel all
the blessed nlEht
"The next mornlnR w hen my brother pot
up he went to the HpIiI to work, but he
could not; tha spirit of God was upon him
and the angel was with him rath r
told him he was not well and he had bit
ter ro to tho house. Joseph started to
the house, but fell by tho way, and the
angel Moionl appeared to hi in nnd said
'Joseph, tell jour father what jou have
seen ai.d what sou lire commanded to do'
He said: 'I am afraid mv father won't
believe me' Hut the angel told him his
father would believe him So he went to
the house und Kent tor father and my two
brothers, and they came to the house and
--.. and talked quite a. spell. I wondered
at It, I was young and I didn't know what
they wete talking about, because I knew
they weio so busy with their harvesting
father fcald: 'Joseph, ro and do Just as
jou are bid,' So he went to the hill Co
morah (this was, I think, tho i'Jd day of
September, IS.'7,) and found It exactly as
he hart seen It In the vision The earth
was rounding on top. and he got a slick
and pried the dirt away from the edges,
and got a lover and i.ilsed the lid. and
there beheld tho records that were to be
trnsliteil. aliil the 1'rlm anil 'J'lmmmlm.
and the sword and breastplate of 1. iben,
nnd the brass plates J-eul brought from
Jerusalem,
"Jloronl told him that tho time had not
yet come for them lo bo brought forth,
but that In due time ho should bring them
forth and translate them, Joseph said: '(
nin not learned.' and the angel said: 'There
Is the Urlm and Thuimnlm. and they will
show you how to Interpret them.' The next
enr, at the saino time. Joseph visited the
place ngaui, and tho third )ear he went,
expecting to Ret the recorus. So he raised
up the lid and took them out. And he
thought that somebody might come along
and see these thlnha (not thinking that
the Lord lnd watched them 1.IW years),
and laid the tecord down and loveied up
the box. When he turned to take his rec
ord tt was gone. The angel told him he
must persevere and must not give up.
Ho raised the lid again, and thero was
the record, Just ns It lay before. He
reached foith his hands th take It, and he
felt a pi assure pushing him away. He
tried the second time, and tho third time
he fell to tho eurth with the pressure,
and he cried In the bitterness of his soul:
Lord, what have 1 dona that I cannot
get these records?' Jloronl said: 'You havo
not obejed the commandments as yon were
commanded to. You must obey Ills coin,
mandinenta In eery particular. You weio
not to lay them out of your hands until
ou had tnem in sale keeping.
Jnsenh
said; 'What shall I do?'
He said: 'Come
here next sear at this time and bring your
oldest brother with sou, and sou tan re
ceive the records.'
"In November my brother took sick, and
through the mlnlstcilng of medicine by
the doctors he passed away. Joseph went
to the place and Inqulied of the angel what
lie should do now. The uugel (.aid, 'You
must brlntr some person with sou' And
Joseph said, 'Who shall I bring I Sly old
est brother Is gone.' The angel said, You
will know her when sou see her.' That
fall ho wint down to Pennsylvania and
tec-ami; acquainted with his wife. Miss
Hale, and he knew when he saw her that
she was the one to go with him to get the
record. In March they were married, and
he brought her home, and on the --d day
of September she went with him to the
place. She didn't see the records, but she
went with him. lie took them up and
brought them part way home and hla them
In a hollo' log. My father, In a few days,
heard that they had got a conjuror, who
they said would come and tlud the plates,

something 111 that lino should bo elone tint

Still there was opposition '" t'io eplsco

The 1 Ian of colonization us embodied In
tho order means much for ludependenco

Added to that fact Is the proposition that

reasons the colonization Is finally to be nt
