For the tlrsl time since the state
of Idaho gave you the ballot a great
i moral issue Is betöre you for settle
ment. It Is an issue affecting our
homes, our children slid the peace
and dignity of the state.
It was urged with great eltecl when
the question of woman suffrage was
under consideration in Idaho that if
women were given the Itallut, they
would be the conserve« of order,
morality and good government in the
slate and on every great moral Issue
would stand together. Irrespective of
patty, fcr the common weal. In this
faith the people of Idaho gave the
ballot to women and believe then and
believe now that they will rise to
any great oceaslon and break patty
ties when It Is clearly shown that
such action Is necessary to uproot an
evil and advance the interests of hu
You can not but look with alarm
upon the agressions of the Mormon
Jjieraichy in this and other Western
states. While making no tight upon
any religion except as that religion
endorses and teaches degrading and
illegal practices, recent facts have
been elicited In the lteed Smoot Sen
ate investigation that may well
cause every wife, duughlcr, mother
and sister to take alarm for the sale
ly of the home and the peace ami
good order of the state.
According to the sworn statements
of President Joseph Smith of the
Mormon hieraichy, himself and many
of the Apostles of that organisation
are living in polygamy regardless of
all law, human and divine. Presl
dent Smith himself confesses to ilv
ing will) live wives und of huving
horn to him by them 42 children
Thirteen of these children have lieen
born to him since lie and the Mor
mon church through Its regularly
constituted aulhorilies, pledged their
faith to the people ol the United
States that they would henceforth
obey the laws. All of the apostles
of the Mormon church that arc In
line for the presidency for the next
40 years are now living In polygamy.
Three of the apostles have taken
plural wives since the manifesto. In
our own state lilshop Pudge, over
his own signatuie, confess d to living
with three wives, and It Is well
known that he had a child horn to
him by one of his polygamous wives
while he was a member of the state
senate from his county a few years
ago. Every member of the Mormon
chinch at all prominent in politics
In Idaho is a polygamist. The pres

law in tills state on the subject of
polygamy and unlawful cohabita
tlon lias lieen stricken from the slat
ute books by the connivance and
management of the leaders of tin
Mormon hierarchy.
John Henry Smith, a polygamous
apostle from Utah, came to Idaho
two years ago and In addition to tlx
ing up a deal by which a Unit
States Senator was elected and
large share of the patronage of the
republican party of Idaho through
this senator, turned over to the Mor
liions, theretiy turning out, of post

publicans also engineered a bill which
afterwards was passed, calling for

Roosevelt's Duplicity.
Prior to Mr. Roosevelt's visit to
Hutte, when on bis political Itinerary
at the ezpense of the railway corpor
ation*. It was freely predicted that
the gentleman would carry Montana
by 20,000 majority.
Ala later dale Congressman Dixon
ventured Die estimate that Mr.
Rnsievelt would receive a majority
of 10 , 000 , while still later both the
republican press and Die spellbinders
of Die party withdraw all propbeeles
along Dial litre.
Wire» In tills city Mr. Roosevelt
made a strenuous effort to Impress
tailoring men with Ills Oddity to
their cause.
While he directed Dir placing of an
address on Die wires of Dm* Associ
ated press purporting to ba Die
speech that be would deliver under
Dip auspices ol the laboring men at
Columbia gardens. Die speech be
actually delivered was different In
many essential respects.
The speech sent out lauded the
railroads and said nothing of ''pluto
cratic" government while the speech
delivered said nothing about the rail
road but declared that this republie
would never liecome a "plutocratic
government, "
The exposure of Ibis cheap political
trick did not redound to Die credit
of Mr. Roosevelt, albeit the "play"
might have lieen overlooked In a man
of lesser note
It »bowed the disposition of a man
holding Die highest political office on
earth, to juggle with the labor vote
ot Montana, while In nowise lessen
ing Ills standing with the corpora
Ills further effort to show Ills love
for the latmilng men hy Inviting a
Huile committee to dine with hliu,
ilgnally failed of IU purpose, react
ing to the president s disadvantage.
These evidences of demagogy, so
utterly out of keeping with the dig
nity of the presidential office, and so
clearly a plan' to "work" the labor
vole, might have lK*en dismissed
with n smile had not Mr. Roosevelt
failed to respond ln the demands of
