"The Mormons must "behave
themselves, obey the laws or go.
The latest doings of their priests,
- police and others, at Salt Lake City,
on last fourth of July, is proof pos
itive that- they are far from heing
good Americans. They, on that
day, insulted the flag and the Re
public by putting it at half-mast
upon many of their public and pri
vate huildiugs. Not only this, they
attempted to kill good citizen's who
proceeded to elevate the flags.
- Their excuse was that the govern
ment had imprisoned their best
jnen, under an unconstitutional
law. Well, was it for them that
leading gentiles kept their tempers
and nre vailed unon non-Mormons
to refrain from committing acts of
violence. Now, this paper has otten
given Mormons credit for industry
and some other good traits. That
was long ago, when they first set-
tied in Apache county and behaved
themselves. We have never nau a
bit of sympathy for their polyga
. mous leaders and have now but lit
tle, if any, sympathy for those who
are duned bv those leaders. Polyg
amy is all wrong. No decent gov
ernment permits its practice and
. - the sooner our government smoKcs
r it out the better it will be for gen
tiles and Mormons."
The foregoing excellent article on
the non-americanism of the Mor
mons is from the Prescott Courier,
we. place it in our columns with
pleasure. Perhaps the respect our
friend the Courier expressed for
. the industry of the Mormon people,
"and for some other good traits,"
would have been somewhat modi
fled at the time had the editor seen
the sweat from the brows of the fe
male laborers in the field, plowing,
hoeing and irrigating, under direc
tion of a stalwart specimen of mas-
tjulinity, as was often seen in the
day when slave labor was the rule
in America and the office of over
seer respectable. If we would find
i decent order of civilization, a
jpeople proud of their country and
its institutions, we must look
among the masses and find where
the men "do the labor for the sup
port of their families and the wo
men look after the household,
making the home of the laborer a
place of rest and recreation ; where
she can be happy herself in the eng
joyment of. the society of her hus
band and the children she has born
unto him. These are the .blessings
of a home, the joy of wedded life,
where there are
."Two souls with but a single thought,
Two hearts that beat as one."
But when Tou have the impossible
two to ten hearts that beat in uni
son with one big buck heart, some

others to the woods. The solution
of this matrimonial problem we

United States Minister Jackson
at the fourth of July banquet in
the City of Mexico, delivered an
oration that was about the prettiest
bit of eloquence heard anywhere
on that day. Albuquerque Jour
nal. The amount of ignorance exhib
ited in this paragraph is sufficiently
rediculous to make a Gallepagos
Island turtle split its shell with
laughter. The report of Minister
Cicero Milner's great oration had
not reached the Journal when they
printed the comparative trash
above quoted.
The appointment of W. Iv. Mead
as United States Marshal of Arizo
na is aunouueed. This is claimed
by the public generally and by the
press of the territory, almost uni
versally, to be an excellent selection.
Last Monday night about half
past 11 o'clock, a party of two or
more persons entered into the
Court house and unlocked the safe
wherein is kept the books and pa
pers of the transactions of the
Board of Supervisors of Apache
count', also the books and rec
ords of the County Treasurer.
After taking therefrom the records
they locked the safe and carried
the property to an alley in the
rear of E. S. Stover's building,
where every leaf containing notes,
records or accounts was cut from
the books and carried away and
destroyed. Tlie books thus muti
lated were found this morning at
the place above mentioned. The
officers are on the alert and it is
supposed the guilty parties will be
speedily brought to justice. This
crime will cost the county quite a
large sum to replace the books and
prepare the accounts ; the data is
all attainable, so that hereafter they
can be perfectly restored.
The acts of the perpetrators of
this abominable outrage could not
have been done for greed; the
books of blank warrants are un
touched. The town is rife with
suspicions, expressed on all sides.
It will do to refer to these matters
when the officers shall have fer
reted out the real criminals, which
we are sure will be done at an
early day.
An Associated Press dispatch
says : The President is understood
to be dissatisfied with the way in
which the Utah Commission has
executed its duties. Its somewhat
timid methods are attributed to the
fact that the members of the com
mission are all old men. The Pres
ident thinks the work of the com
mission might be much more vigo
rously done. He regards polygamy
as an unmitigated evil which ought
to be stamped out. He doesn't
think the commission does its part
to accomplish that end. It is un
derstood that after his summer va
cation the President will re-organize
the Utah Commission with a
view to more effective work on its
part. There are now three republi
cans and two democrats on the
commission. They will probably
be removed and more vigorous men
appointed to their places. The
President is determined that all
anti-polygamy laws shall honestly
and earnestly be enforced.
Now let polygamous Zion howl
and set again its banners at half
mast because it will not be permit
ted to violate the laws of the land
in the support of its false doctrines
and pernicious teachings. The op
portunity is again favoring to the
display of the peculiar powers of
Orator Milner, Hereafter, or after
the presidential summer vacation
of President Cleveland, every day
will be a Fourth of July. The
young and fearless successors of
old fogyism will set Utah afire and
will fan the flame with such ardor
that the peculiar crime of the im
pure saints shall be entirely con
sumed or banished from our land
forever. Oh, for a close of the
summer vacation.
Brother Reed is hard at it over
in St. Johns fighting the heat and
the Mormons. If the latter get a
permanent lodgment in that part
of Arizona, it must be in the face
of withering weekly broadsides
from the St. Johns Herald. Con
fine yourself strictly to the poty
gamous features of the Mormons,
colonel, and you shall have our
moral support first, last, and all the
time. Albuquerque Journal.
"We will have to do it so long as
the pernicious doctrine is held by
the Mormon church as a revelation
from Heaven,and we have power of
utterance. So contribute to the
cause of truth all the moral sup
port you have space for, Brother
Journal. The press ever' where is
wakening up to the importance of
the fight, and public sentiment is
set in the right direction, through
its all powerful influence. The Ex
ecutive office of the United States
government has caught the spirit
of the people, and he will soon put
men in the stronghold of iniquity
that will with sledge-hammer blows
break up their unholy combination.
The subject has been toyed with
long enough. The Patriot Milner
should be relieved of his white
elephant and we should have peace.
The polygamists must go.
ANONYMOUS SCRIBBLERS.
Dont take a back seat Mr. Orion
Orator Milner, dont grow fidgety
and act as if you were on the verge
of St. Vitus dance, or grow uneasy
with symptons of restless eschar
ides. Take your medicine and act
like a man.
The editor of this paper is in the
course of business compelled to de
pend upon his assistants to take
up. such matters as may arise dur
ing his absence. He has confidence
in their judgement and on their
ability to state facts, in such terms
as will best make the case under
stood by the general reader. Now
you understand, or ought to, just
receive what you see in the anti
polygamous advocate as the senti
ment of the editor and the spirit of
the Herald. Save your contempt
for the absconding Charles W. Pen
rose, editor of the parent journal of
a church whose sole object in intro
ducing polygamy was to "furnish
husbands for all unmarried mar
riageable females who could'nt get
a man all to herself." You are a
nice sett to express contempt.
Swallow another . library Lawyer
Milner and get kinks with the ital
ic 1c out of your stomach. Con
tempt save the mark, why the Era
has done nothing since the saints
have taken to the woods but quote
from the anonymous scribblings
found in the Deseret News.
The cases of the Territory of
Arizona against D. K. Udell, for
polygamy and D. K. Udell, for per
jury, also against Joseph Crosby,
for perjury will come up before the
District Court in Prescott. The
Hon. John A Rush and John C.
Herndon are attorneys for the de
fendants. " The well-known legal
attainments of the attorneys in the
case will ensure the defendants a
proper representation and a fair
trial.
It is reported in town that in
dictments have been found for
bribery and corruption, by the
Yavapai Grand Jury, against four
members of the 13th. The names
mentioned are Stephens, Leather
