arrival in this city today from a trip to IS7cw York to learn that he had been quoted by Delegate Caine yesterday as not in favor of the Cullom disfranchising bill and that the statement had been made to the House Committee on Territories The truth is that John T Caine has been guilty of a Arery shabby trick one of the meanest which the Sam Slick of the Saints ever had tlie honor to be compelled to father Tlio facts arc Oh Wednesday last the Committee on Territories of the House had under con sideration the StvubleDisfranchising act Delegate Dubois spoke in favor of the bill andCaine appeared for theopposition In the course of his argument Caine stated that Judge Baskin alone fathered the measure and that it was hot supported by the Governor or any other Federal official Dubois contradicted the statement asserting that tho Governor and the com missioner to his personal knowledge favored themeasure To trite Caine replied that the Governor of the Territory had personally assured him lie was taking no action in regard to the bill and did not propose to and im pressed the committee with the idea of Governor Thomass silent opposition to the hill This was rather a setback to Dubois and placed both him and the Governor in an em barrassing position As the Governor was out of the city he could not be seen to ex plain matters Today however Governor Thomas returned from New York and hav ing been informed of the manner In which the shrewd Mormon attorney had distorted a private remark into an official declara tion indignantly sought Mr Caine for an in terview Governor Thomas accosted Caine on the rojinnda arid demanded an explanation Caiue stated that he had only quoted the Governor as not interested in the bill and tried to squirm out of the responsibility for place tne chief executive in au improper light beforethe Committee 011 Governor Thomas controlled himself bat vigorously denounced Caines action as un fair iinjtlst and gross misrepresentation of liis called to Caines mem ory a casual meeting in thecapitol a short Caine drew him aside from Governor West and said to him that he Wanted to ask him a question which hecould answer or not I am constantly asked by different members of said Caine whether you are not here working in 1he interest of thebill prepared by Thomasfrankly informed him Governor West and himself were not foranysuch purpose that their visit was solely in reference to the public build ing and park andthat he proposed to take no active interest iu any genera legisla tion right had demanded the Governor to take a remark drawn from me by you and wrenching it from its connec tion use it to furtheryour own purpose by giving it a false and distorted meaning By so you Jit tempted to place false position which you ought to have known from my whole public life Iiieyor would have as sumed Why cant you represent the people of your Territory instead of your Church alone Cainedenied that he was repre senting the Mormon Church You represent nothing retorted Thomas been filled with lies Governor and myself ever since wo came here because you suspected missi9n was to influence antiChurch legislation We likve done nothing and said nothing except when our private views were asked as you asked me for mine and got them We have before no committee and sought no committeemcn and have attended as youknpw or oughtto know to the
