A. T. SunscmiTioN f LOO per year, in advance. St. Johns, Thursday, August 6, The skulking, sneaking and hid ing apostles, John Taylor and Geo Q. Cannon, of the Mormon church showed their valor to live for their religion, whatever they might be willing to die for, on Pioneers Day July 24. Under the indictment of a grand iury of the United States they have "skipped the gutter" and gone to parts past finding out by the officers of the law. Understand ing the penalties due to their crimes and the certainty of their execution by an offended people, they have become fugitives from justice and will not materialize or martyrize, cither as an example to the faithful in the church, or for the glorv of the kingdom of Latter Day Saints on earth. "We ask the deluded followers of these false teachers to look at those arould be soldiers of the cross and pom pare their actions and conduct ' with the lives of the early christians. The apostles of the Mormon church are not rendering unto Cajsar the things that are Ciosar's ; they rather set at defiance the laws of the coun try in whicji they live. The apos- ties of the fijprmon church do not stand up. likp men, convinced of their own righteous purposes, of their own obedience to the right cou'sness that cames from above, before their accusers and say with the Apostle Paul when he was .confronted by unbelievers "for I lam not ashamed of the gospel of Christ for it is the power of God tmto salvation." Saint Paul did hot take to the brush and send in a note to the people to have it read, he was not afraid of prison-houses, nor the court house over which iigrippa presiucu, out nice a man of truth he stood before the Howard of the first century and plead his own cause, believing in the doctrine which he preached. Nor did the Apostle Paul' fool away 'his time and Jiis great talent on any other feubjects than righteousness, tem perance and a judgment to come, themes to make royalty tremble and bring the masses to the knowl edgand embrace of the truth. AYlSdhtelligent people should be f huy) bulged h' the teachings of thisbimd of frauds is past compre hcvsKui.; How it is that these cowardly sneaks could keep the confidence of the meanest intellect 'among that people is an enigma for Iwliich their is no solution. The hypocritical scoundrels ; the blas pheming braggarts issued their proclamation, on the 24th of July, to the church to be faithful, to stand fast and see the salvation of God. It came from their hiding place, wherever that may be, and was a repetition of hypocritical cant that should deceive no one. AVe are amazed to see men of sense on all other subjects still cling to such frauds, still adhering to the currupt teachings of those self pro nounced cowards and dodgers. The cattle men in the Indian Territory will be fearful losers by the President's order to leave the territory within forty days, if the order not revoked. General Sheridan may, and does, know how to move three or four; hundred thousand nicn,by an order, i in forty days, or oven less, but it j would have been more consistent j with 'the situation and eternal fit-1 ncss of .Iirifgj4f4ue Resident had, stST.-. 011 "nvnnr'f.1 TlVKtllu.

They paid roundly for their pasturage, and were recognized by the Department having control of the Indian's land, and deserve protection oi the government in their removal. They should by all means have time to select grazing lands for their stock. AVe are disposed to praise the Executive for his laudable efforts m the discharge ot ins omciai uuty, out wnen lie selects men whose whole life has been spent in gaining knowledge of the art of war, .for special experts, in the so lution of those problems tbat per tain solely to the peaceful business pursuits, it seems rather inconsist ent. Would it be any particular satis faction to General Sheridan to See lying dead 'upon the ground more than half the stock he would re move from the territory within forty days, even were it possible to gather men in sufficient number to make the drive? AVe think not From our estimate of Mr. Cleve land, we do not believe that he de sires or wills the ruin of any citi zen, or the destruction of any in dustry. He has simply:sclected the wrong agent to give him inform ation on a subject of such great importance, and we hope that he will yet listen to men who can give lim proper and truthful inform tion upon a subject of such vita importance to tne cattle growers of the countiy. MILNER THE MISSING-LINK. Milner the missing-link, who does the Chinese work on that won derful journalistic curiosity, the Orion Era, shows himself to be as big a jack ass as ever brayed or eat a sage brush, by the following ar ticle which appeared in the last is sue of that tithing-house circular : "Will some one tell us whether any thing has been done to arrest the mau who murdered a Mexican in Apache countv about two weeks ago to 'make him talk?' " In regard to "whether anything las been done to arrest the man who murdered a Mexican in Apache county," we, would say that the sheriff' and his deputies have made every effort to ascertain the where abouts of the murderer of Pablo Itivali, but their search has so far proved fruitless, namely, from the fact that the murderer is a Mormon and the people of that church, ac cording to their custom which they adhere to in every instance, aided lim in eveiy possible manner to es cape to some place of safety, there by thwarting the aim of justice and efying the law. The editor of the Ira further states that the Mexican as killed to "make him talk" his is the first intimation that has ever been made as to the cause that ed to the murder and shows that le editor of the church organ nows more about it than he would be willing to tell. AVe have heard of people being murdered to keep them from telling tales, but we link this is the first instance on record where a person was murdered to "make him talk" We never new before that by killing a man you could make him talk, although le Mormons may understand this modus operandi if there is any truth in the old saving that "prac tice makes perfect." Brace up. Milner, dont let the recollections of ic Mountain Meadows Massacre befuddle the ideas in your liquid- zed brain. THE FASTING CAPTAIN. Thus on the valiant corps he led. On eve of fight their Captain Haul Hurrah ! my heroes, route your foes ; YY ho could such warriors brave oppose 1 Fight! should you fall I'm free to say That you will dine 111 Heaven to-day. The foe appears the Captain runs A prudent man all danger shuns. Some wag, who saw him leave the crowd, In icenng tone cried clear and loud : Why dost thou leave thy comrades thus, Ho! Captain, stav and dine with us. Nay, answered he, and sped away, Nay, children, I shall fast to-Uay. That is about the way Taylor and Cannon, the braves of the Mor mon church, are encouraging the polygamists to. make their fight. "Sic 'em !" cries John Taylor. "He who rules the destinies of men, and has a watchful care over his lambs will put the iron into your souls, will nerve you for the contest and will strengthen you and, put your magazines, bawls Cannon: "don't be afraid my hearties, the sword of the Lord and of Gideon is a power that will bring 3rou out conquer ors." "Where are now the leaders whose battle charges are setting the faithful afire? Hid away in the ha mow ; skulking while better and braver men are taking their punishment. How long will the simpletons follow such leaders? THE JOSEPHITES. "We referred yesterday to the schism in the Mormon Church as a matter which was bevond the jurisdiction of the Federal courts and officers. It is none the less an interesting topic of consider ation una its History is curious When Brigham Young proclaimed polygamy as the corner-stone of the Mormon church, thirty-three years ago, he stated that Joseph Smith had secretly told him nine years before that he had had special revelation on the subject from the Almighty. Joseph Smith's son, Joseph Smith, Jr., did not be lieve in Brigham's statement, nor did he believe in polygamy; so when the Mormons moved to Utah Territory, under the command of Young, and with the avowed pur pose of practicing polygamy to the fullest extent, Joseph Smith. Jr., refused to accompany them, and with a number of other Mor mons who shared his views, estab lished a monogamous branch of the Mormon sect at Piano, 111. There he lived and prospered un til lately, when, on the occasion of a visit to the cradle of Mormonism at ivirtianci, u., ne addressed a large audience in the first Mormon Terriplc ever built, and declared his intention of going to Utah to make war on polygamy. This was two years ago. He kept his word. He went to Salt Lake City and opened his batteries on the saints, with such effect that he is now at the head of quite a respectable faction, which is known by the name of the Josephites, and which, by the way, has some churches in the southern part of this state. The Josephites are Mormons in everything but this they do not believe in potygamy. A J osephite has one wife and no more. Now, with such x,eoPe the United States has no quarrel. The gov ernment of this country interferes wilh no man's opinions. Joseph Smith, Jr., is free to believe that lis father was inspired from hca- ven and nad special revelations from God ; no one can gainsay him on that account. It is only when 1 .1. i' men make tneir religion pretext" for breaking the aws of the land that they become amenable to iustice. If Joseph Smith Jr., who has at least the ad vantage over the Elders and Iis- lops of the Mormon Church, in that he was born 111 this country, while they were mostly born in En gland, and adhere to their English notions, can win over to Jus side the great bulk of the Mormons, he will solve a very annoying problem and will render his people a most signal service. Those who persist in polygamy cannot escape the fate that is now impending. One by one, beginning with the richest and most prominent, all the polyga mists are going to be punished. Nothing can save them. I hey oused the sleeping lion when they loisted the flag at half-mast on the Fourth, ond the officers of justice will not halt in their work until polygamy is as dead as slavery. Mormons who have any sense will ealize this, and will, we should suppose j see tne aavaniage 111 join ing the Josephites, which will be a -i . . 11 1 j way 01 letting tnemseivcs uuwu easily.
