VOL. IV. SALT LAKE CUTIT, IJTAH, FEBRUARY 11, 1899 No. 25 JESUS AND MAHOMET. IT has been asserted and main- tained "by the adherents, the de voteea and the Jeans that he never ottered or gave ex- pression to one-jword or sentiment which was intended to wound the feelings of those whom he came in contact with, and that he enter- tained the greatest respect for the religions opinions of others, but as we proceed with this article we will endeavor to prove beyond the per- adrentnre of a doubt that snch was not the case and that Jesus was swayed and controlled by the same passions and prejudices which has always .controlled the actions of those who have endeavored to es- tablish A new system of religion or to reform the system which had become implanted in the minds of the people. Jeans was not unlike the other Jewish prophets for he and they were most extraordinary beings. They would speak like angels; but acted entirely different. For in- stance Isaiah walked in a nude con- dition through the streets of his village. Jeremiah and Hosea acted like wild beasts and were very much depraved in their moral habits, but they pronounced curses upon all who dared to dispute their au- thority. As Jeins progressed in his work nftjr ttasflicm 'differ in temperament or in character from those we nave referred to. He preached as they did. He poured forth invectives against the rulers and the rich as they did. He be- lieved in all the'current fancies respecting the approaching destruc- tion of the world. The conquest of the evil spirit or power or the reign of his God, the same as the prophets of old. He was .carried away with these ideas and labored under the urpresniera that he was the new Messiah or the -only true son of God who would be sent to prepare this world kingdom, and that he would be appointed for the special purpose of judging the souls of men and to reign over them on earth. These ideas followed him to his grave. It was his belief that God reigned in heaven and Satan reigned on earth. He pronounced eternal punishment on all who refused to join him, and upon all who did anything to merit the .esteem of their fellowmen. He did not hesi- tate in consigning to hell-fire. Said he, "He that believeth vahd is bap- tized shall be saved and he that be- Heveth not shall be damned." He pronounced his condemnation upon a fig tree because it bore no fruit, although it was -out of season for fruit. He retorted to who accused him of breaking the Sal> bath that he was above the'Sab- bath. He was extremely nngallant to his mother. On one occasion when she approached him he claimed, "Woman what have I to dowiththee." It is an indisputable fact that he completely failed in making any impression upon the people of Jerusalem and his suc- cessful the Eharisees. He called the teamed doctors gene- ratum vipers, waited and serpents; he declared that they shooldW the torments of hell, because .they would not ac- cept his teachings. He informed his disciples that whoever spoke against the Holy Ghost it would not be forgiven him either in this world or the world to come. He taught his devotees that they must forsake their fathers, mothers, wives, (listers and brothers and trample all family ties and rela- tions under foot if they desired to march under his banner, or if they wished to inherit a seat in his kingdom, for according to his teachings very narrow and orooked is the road wjiich leads to heaven, but broad and very smooth is the road which leads to destruction. His religion is unlike the relig- ion- of Mahomet for wherever the re'igion of the latter prevails, drunkenness, licentiousness and all forms of-vice disappear, but where- ever the religion of the former prevails there enness, slavery and vice of every kind has always flourished. Mahomet, who was as modest as a young maiden, was a poor boy and a mule driver, but today many hundred million people believe in the teachings of Mahomef, who rendered greater service to man- kind than any other religious teacher. Mahomet (taught that "God had 1.0 daughters for how can God have daughters when he has no spouse." But the adherents of Jesus teach us that God traveled billions and billions of miles from his abode in the unknown world to this earth in order to form the ac- quaintance of Mary, the wife of Joseph. Mahomet never frequented the wine-sJhopr neither did" he taste wine or whisky nor look at the dancing girls. He wan very kind to little children. He visited the sick and was very humble. He never struck any one in his life. He was opposed to the ensUvement of his fellowmen. When he was asked to curse some one he said, "I have not been sent to curse, but to show mercy to mankind." He always waited on himself, mending his own clothes and milking his own goats. But Jesus had women to wash his feet and turned water into wine so that his followers might eat, drink and be merry. Mahomet proclaimed that the "Gods will not reward those who do good from the fear of being de- prived of shsriug in the glory of the nett world." This great teacher impressed the idea upon the minds of his hearers that "The ghosts or the souls of men will not be condemned to eternal misery or exalted to everlasting bliss, ''but as the tree falls so shall it lie." But we learn from the followers of Jesus that all who do not accept his teachings will be punished and tortured throughout eternity. A negro man and a white woman were tried in the city court of Savannah last week for improperly living together. They were fined each or three years on the cbaingang. The white woman was forgiven by the righteous judge and ordered to leave the state. The negto was sent to the ehaingang. This is justice as Judge Norwood understands it. It is, it would seem, hard for white person to commit a punishable tiit Truth, Savtauuth, Ga. It is safe to say, that Judge Nor- wood is a firm believer in the theory that there is a white and black heaven and it is fair to assume that lie considers himself a Christian. Be that wit may, if he JB an honest fluqi and Christian he. shotnld have administered equal, and exact justice to both the negro and the white woman. If the negro had forced this woman against her will to embrace him, it would have been an entirely different proposition, but the woman was as guilty as the negro and she should have been fined or sent to jail or to the chain- THE SENATORIAL DEAD- LOCK. IT certainly is to be deplored by all who are interested in the wel- fare of this state and the futnffc success of the Democratic party that the Democratic members wiU stubbornly persist in prolonging the senatorial contest. who' are responsible for this state of affairs ceatainly 'cannot expect to receive the endorsement of the masses of the people even in the slightest degree. r The minority members of the legislature, or more properly speaking those supporting the Hons. W. H. King and O. W. Powers, assert that it is not their intention to permit the majority to ram their candidate down their throats. Admitting that this is a logical position then it is just as consistent for the majority to assume the attitude that they do not intend to permit the minority to force or to ram their candidates down the throats of the majority, or in other words, whenever it comes to pass that the tail can successfully and continu- ally wag the dog instead of the dog wagging the tail then it will be eminently proper and just for the minority to control the actions of the majority. It is useless to attempt to argue or to reason with some of the Democratic members of the legisla- ture who are bent upon disrupting or destroying the party. every man who is not entirely crazy knows full well that from time immemorial the cardinal principle and doctrine of the Dem. ocratic party has been that the minority must always bow to the will of the majority and whenever it is otherwise then we shall cease to be a Democrat. It has been reported on good authority that some of these gen- tlemen have declared that "they would rather see a Republican elect- ed to the United States Senate, or the seat left vacant, rather than to see the Hon. A. W. McCune suc- ceed." If this is true then the members of the Democratic party throughout the state made a griev- ous mistake by selecting such men to enact laws and to further the cause of Democracy. These gen- tlemen also use the false and un- fair argument that no poor man can aspire to political honors in Utah. But the record shows that such is not the case, and that the Hon. W H. King whom they designate as being the poor man, was elected to various offices in 1882, in Fillmore city and Millard County, and between that time and the year 1889 he held for four yean the office of county attorney, was county clerk for two years, city attorney for six years, city assessor for two years, city recorder for two yean, mem- ber of city council for two years, and also school trustee, became a mraber'bf the legislature when 22 yean of age, and was ire-elected two years later. In 1891 he was elected to the territorial legislature Mid aim became county attorney of Utah ctranty and served in that capacity for four yean. Was also city attorney of Proro for a mnm- ber of yean, became associate jus- tice of the supreme court of Utah in 1894, and served, until January 4.1896. He received the unani- mous nomination for congress in September, 1896, and was tendered the renomination upon a silver; platter by the Democratic party in 1898. Those who contend that poor men are hampered and denied poli- tical preferment in this state should refrain from advancing such rot after perusing this record. No paper within the confines of commonwealth has sounded the praises of the Hon. W. H King any oftener or louder than the Broad Ax, but when his supporters brand those who have the right to support his rivals as dishonest men and women in every sense of the word then it is time to call a halt. We again say that ui the interest of all the people of Utah we sin- cerely hope that the senatorial contest will be brought to a speedy close. The 'result of the 102nd ball ot was as follows: W. H. King 7, A. W. McCune 28, O. W. Powers 2, Frank J. Cannon 10, Geo. Suther- land 12, Nebeker 2. THE HON FRANK J. CANNON. THURSDAY night, Feb. 9th, the Salt Lake Theater was filled to over- flowing with people of all political shades and opinions to listen to Senator Cannon's address on Sena- torial "Candidates and Pharisees." The Hon. George Q. Cannon was also present, but he left long be- fore his son had concluded Us tirade against some of the best people of Utah.

EAGLE BLOCK, SALT LAKE CITY were unable to recall one single instance wherein any one occupy- ing the exalted position which Senator Cannon occupies today, has ever stooped so low as to at- tack their competitors in public during a senatorial contest. The Hon. O.W. Powers says: "It was a grand speech, and I never thought I should live to see the day in Utah when a son of the First Presidency of the Mormon Church would talk as Senator Can- non did." But wt never expected to see the day when a United States Senator would, stand up in the presence of over people and practically admit that he was guilty of departing fro m the road which leads to the highest and purest morality. There was nothing in the sena- tor's speech worthy of the con- sideration of honest men, and it was only intended to catch the rabble and those who do not use their thinking faculties. Senator Cannon has brought shame upon himself, his father, his state, the nation and. the exalted position he was elected to by the Republican party. t HON. MOSES THATCHER. THIBTY-THKM members of the legislature petitioned the Hon. Moses Thatcher to enter the sena- torial race and settle this most un- fortunate struggle for the United States senatorship. But that most patriotic gentleman declined to do so upon the broad ground that his election would simply add more fuel to the fire which is being kindled against, the Mormon peo- ple throughout the nation by some of their supposed friends. He says that "If he should enter the con- test at the present time it would seem unfair and I think dishonor- able to do so, as my friends hare entered it with the understanding that I would not do No person is endowed with any higher sense of integrity and hon- esty than the Hon. Motes Thatcher for he is perfectly willing to lay said? his political ambition and] aspirations for the good of all the people of Utah. i ALVIRAS E.
