We are in receipt of an Annual Columbia Calender, from the Pope Manufacturing Co., of Boston, manufacturers of the popular Col umbia bicycles. Mormon ism Disclosed. Under the above caption we find the following in the Mountain, Ala. News, from a resident of Mm; «*lt will be seen that I sympa thise with honest men who have been erroneously informed by mor mon elders and absolutely lied into the mormon church. We have sev era! honest industrious families here from the different states, who have been misled by mormon elders. They sacrificed all they had in a christain land and came to Arizona thinking they were mormons. But it only required a few days for them to find out that they were caught in one of the devil’s nets. And those who have remained, would like to get back. f am informed that the good people of Alabama have one Ben Leßarron from this place in com pany with one HTsmv prraefttny Christ and him crucified at Day’s Gap. Ben tried it at Purchancy, Go., last spring, but it got too warm for him. He concluded he could see feathers in the air and Moroni revealed to him that Geor gia had.* little tar left. He will tell you how grand the mormon church is, and what a magnificent country Arizona is; how his church help the poor; how much work can be had at high how much vacant land here, etc. But he will forget the main facts, to-wit: That mormons do not believe the nible; that they participate in the follow ing vices: dancing, intemperance, gambling and swearing; that they possess no morality; that a great many of them are practicing po lygamy now on the sly, (and not very sly); that his brother is living with two wives here at this time; that we have a great scarcity of water by which to irrigate the lands already taken, that work can scarcely lie had, and if from a mor mon, (if the pay comes at all,) it is an order,. on the mormon stores. Nearly all of them are mortgaged for all they are worth. They are very superstitious, and sinfully ignorant. in this territory the whites, mormons, mexicans and negroes ai Attend the same school, which would not suit Alabama (nor me) and they have a compulsory school law. Taxes are very high here. The mormons are required to pay one-tenth of all they make to the church. In their articles of faith they say: We believe the bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly; we also believe the book of mormon to be the word of God. But when you sound them they believe all the bible was incor rectly translated, except that which Joe Smith copied. They say the book of mormon is the most an cient, correct and reliable history ( of America, having been discovered to the Young Prophet Joe Smith, | Junior by the Angel Prophet J«, Koroni, and translated from the language on the plates, into English by means of the urim and thou rim which was received with the records. Is it any wonder that par ties pretending to believe this eom mtted the most; blood curdling! crime recorded in history—the j Maintain Meado v in tss tore; that I they would perpetrate ti e swindle of the Kirkland Bank failure, in Ohio. That they murdered hund reds of converts who tried to escape from Salt Like City. That the good people of Missouri and Illinois found it necessary to eject them for horse stealing and murder. Is it any wonder they preach lies to the honest and unsuspecting people of Alabama.. If the people , of Day’s Gap knew as much about i mormonism in their own land as I , do they would tell Ben that he was wanted in Arizona quick. He would get a revelation from Moroni to move his washing. Follow the mormons from New York to Utah and you will not listen to Ben with, much patience. Invoking the blessings of Al mighty God to rest on the people every where in their present dis tressed condition I will beg leave to remain Yours Truly, R. 0. Welch. Mesa, Arizona, Nov. 10, 1893.” i C mcerning the mormon popula i tion of the territory Governor , Hughes in his annual report says. “Objection has been raised to our i mormon population. This popula tion does not exceed one—eighth of our people, and it must be added there is no more thrifty, temperate. ’ industrious, or better disposed body . of citizens in the territory. The , practice of polygamy is now un known among them. They have done as much to bring about the 1 prosperous conditions with which ‘ Arizona is blessed today as any . other section of the community, ©cpi'ciully in-the reel* run tin, l of the soil by irrigation, of which they are the acknowledged masters and ’ the pioneers in the United Stares.” ) % ' ■ i THE : Dnivmityof Arizona I TUCSON, ARIZONA. i , ' Opens September 27, 7893.
