Polk and Henry but Mr. Polk de- both of his be- fore he had assumed control of our I government he lost the friendship of a great many leaders of the Democratic William Cullen David Dudley John W.

Cannon than what in convention on the above HON. FRANK J. CANNON AND THE OLD WET WHILE the campaign of 1896 of this state was at its height the Hon. Frank J. Cannon traversed all portions of Utah and delivered brilliant speeches in favor of re- high protective bounties and free and at the same time he was egged on by the old wet hen better known as Bishop C. C. Goodwin to admonish those who celled themselves free silver Republicans to hold themselves aloof from the Democratic party and not to vote for their candidate for congress nor for any of their county When the senator addressed a large meeting which was held in the Salt Lake Theater shortly after the Republican party of this county had nominated all of its county and legislative the senator commended each and every one of them including the Hon. W. W. Taylor ex- dog to the voters of this and at the same lime he was thoroughly familiar with the fact that Mrs. Emmeline B. Wells and several others who had secured the nominations from the hands of their convention were avowed and renounced McKinley The old wet hen of the Tribune ook up Senator Cannon's slogan if high bounties nd free and it also en- and advocated the election if the entire Republican ticket of his state and It even wallowed Hon. W. W. Taylor who championed the single gold and the election of Major And the Tribune and Senator Cannon both predicted hat death and damnation would broadcast throughout our and if the people would elect a majority of congressmen who were not in favor of the theory and deas which we have referred But Senator Cannon and our the old wet hen did not in- timate during that campaign that they would be in favor of dering all their pet theories in der to acquire free and at the present time these two men are engaged in condemning the Democratic party of this state because its members are to surrender its time honored principles for the sake of rewarding Mr. Cannon with the United States On Thursday July 1st, 1897, the Hon. William J. Bryan and in closing down some of the largest mines in our During the campaign of 1897 the Tribune contended that the free silver cause was not an but its true friends and ad- contended that it should enter into all the elections both city and But the Tribune ridiculed that proposition and wanted to know if the free silver Democrats intended to establish a mint in this city in case they in winning the It also championed at that election the cause of the candidates who nad been nominated by those who were in favor of the single gold If Chairman Jones of the cratic national committee is of the opinion that he can further the Free silver cause in Utah by openly advocating the re-election of the Hon. Frank J. Cannon to the United States whose mind as changeable as the shifting and if Senator Jones tends to be guided and controlled by the unscrupulous outfit which controls the Salt Lake then it is high time lor those who are honestly in favor of free silver to repudiate the unwarranted inter- in the political affairs of this by the Hon.
