WEBSTER. 2 HEW TO THE LINE. VOL. I. SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, APRIL 25, 1896. No. 35. THE CRISIS IS HERE. JOSEPH F. SMITH made appearance as attorney for the cent Church manifesto at Provo, ott last Sunday. According to re- trentlemau made a con- the -_ be looked for in Utah within the next few months. The old fight must not be started; it would only make matters worse. The remedy should come from the Mormon a U1C people themselves; they alone have ;ma plea, although he had a bad the opportunity of bringing Utah up out of great tribulation, and of making her the brightest star in the West. Where is the raan or the set of men who will seize the open- I cause and carried the majority of to audience with him. One would infer that the creed of the manifesto a new departure, from the fact is read to the Stake j ing and lead on to glory? Now is ,1 ____ 1 ____ J_l __ J ______ the time to act, for delay is danger ous. Some of the purest and brightest members of the Mormon Church openly condemn the spirit H j I i to be the established law of the I and purpose of the manifesto, and Church The creed or tenets of a I in them lies the hope and prosperity church change, or be of our young State.

In the pres- ent case, the promulgation of this edict more of strategy than tain any such monstrous and un- American ideas. Before Democ- racy can flourish and take heart again, there must be a withdrawal or modification of the church mani- festo, and an outspoken Democratic newspaper in Salt Lake, that will stand up for the party "through evil as well as good report." It is true that the cause of De- mocracy is growing brighter all over the country every day; that the West can see a star of hope by way of the South, but until we in Utah can get in line with the American spirit, there is but little encouragement to tight for party success when it can be manipulated by a power greater than the people themselves. We have expressed ourselves in line with the other American States. Let it begin with those we have indicated and the contest will be settled forever Selah. Daniel for temporary chairman and A. B. Norton and W. S. Kevins as temporary secretaries This is the last convention of Lily Whites at which delegates have been regularly elected. The vote has increased materially since the first nomina- tion, and the leaders are sanguine of making a good showing. No in- structions will be given delegates and they will be left free to act as they see fit. The above netds no comment, for it is in perfect accord with what the Broad Ax has always main- tained. The Republican party hates the negro race at heart, and only shows them friendship when they can use them for their own selfish ends. There will soon be need of a force bill for the g. o. p. in the South. Sole tor Youman'fl New York Leader. We alao carry Stetson's and other fine hats.

Many who favored it did so they do it? We pause for results. upon the recommendation of others not knowing or realizing what they were doing wheu the matter came up. Legislation either by the church or state that is secured in this way is pernicious and danger- ous, and is always resorted to for the purpose of getting the advan- tage by a trick It is almost always followed by a reactionary sentiment m a free country, and the tide of public opinion flows as far in the as it did in its Smith in his opposite direction favor. President ProM> address assumed to expound the full meaning of the manifesto, when he maintained it was the province of the Church to direct which threatens to cover the State with Egyptian darkness for years to come, the criticisms of Democrats by the Herald is mockery, prompt- ed either by stupidity or unlimited gall. Yes, the Democrats of Utah are despondent; they are paralyzed and disorganized. They feel that many of the professed followers of Jefferson and Jackson in the State of Utah, have yet to learn what Democracy is. They feel that be- fore marshaling their forces on the field of battle, it would be far bet- ter policy to get them over the hills and in some quiet valley let them practice on the awkward squad of politics until they know something of veteran service; and the editor of the Herald would doubtless de- 9U- RA Y YAM COTT, ATTORNEY-AT-LAW. 507 McComick Block, SALT LAKE CITY.

AND so the manifesto ia to be presented to the people in the sev- eral Stakes? are still curious to know wherein this is necessary. More- over we think it will have a preju- dicial effect on Utah's interests. We would that they hadn't asked the people's voice in the matter. As a matter of fact the people can do no less than expect their honored (church) heads, presidents of quo- rums, missionaries or others whose time should be given to their call- ing to so devote it without being told by them what they should not do.

This is the true logic of the manifesto, and this is doubt- less its true intent; and no one un- derstand-, it better than President Smith, who was one of the authors and supporters of this new creed. What the effect of this dogma will be upon young Utah remains to be seen We believe, however, that the intelligent American por- tion of the Mormon Church will repudiate this attempt to enslave the mind and conscience of man- kind; that they will upon reflection, say to these church bigots, we are the followers of the man from Galilee, who came upon earth to rive information and benefit by do- ing duty in this body of recruits. It is true there is an apathy in Democratic circles; but why is it, and when did it begin? The "tired feeling" came unexpectedly upon the young Democracy of Utah on the 7th of April, 1896, and was rendered more potential a few mornings afterward, by the publi- cation of a leading editorial in the great Democratic daily in this city, apologizing for, and justifying the blow, that made the Democratic party in Utah "bite the dust. religious duties.

Is it designed that all members of the church (or priesthood) shall submit to an- other's advice, counsel or dicta- tion? If so, then is not the Mormon church behind the political throne, hence the dictator in Utah, and a potential factor in all the surround- ing States, with a power in the na- tion that is a menace of the whole Independent.
