Governor Thomas reiterates the opin- ion that tho Mormon people are com- pletely under the contiol of the priest- hood and that in every political and bus- iness act the- eh. u rib is put first, the :ountry afterward. There is no reason to believe that any earthly power can exact from the ehurch any declaration opposed to polygamy.
