   Salt Lake Tribune, The (Newspaper) - December 7, 1890, Salt Lake City, Utah                                CllY An OathBound Hostile People Have Bo Right to Ifotc HEROIC REMEDIES REIJdjRED IN UTAH More Schools Needed What the People Should Be of Wooden That Refused to Be Baptized EDITOR pleasure I take tho present opportunity of present ing to THE TKJUUXK readers Home of iny ideas on political social and religious conditions of Utah in tho past to givo my views on this much anomalous and vexed question of Utah Mormonisrn I shall speak from tho knowledge of n consciftnco even as soared with a hot iron from a thirty years residence in Utah I liavo had a somewhat extended acquaintance with ail during my sojourn here As to discussing on the Mormon question there are some seri ous disadvantages attached to rno in so longa residrmco horo my being con nected by all ties of human nature In tho Mormon Chiirch many of the members of which I respect and in tho intense absorption I have been called upon to givo in local and Territorial affairs Such warfare tends to obliterate from thso ralnd those broader impressions of tho leading characteristics of people I have come In contact with I wish to traco local effects to their proper source and in doing so I shall speak impartially and rise above contracted views and preju dices and local shortcomings I naturally feel well towards tho Mormon people and feel to call rnoro upon the heart of charity to the misguided and ering ones TIJK AIORMOX BALLOT I 0 my vlows aud ob spryationis with reference to tho mbri inodo la days gone as woll as its dangers to tho United States Government Jn tho first place I muse say the Mormon Church a government of itself claiming todorivo its authority direct from God through arevelation from their prophet Wilford Woodruff Ho with his counselors I am satisfied moot In secret conclave to discuss tho interests of their religiously civilly socially as well as financially Tho lirst presidency tho Church with his counselors selects the candidate or then sends the secret words or tho still small voice Tis right tis right tis that so must bo voted for Tho people are then called in their respective towns tho bishops then call caucuses to ratify tho priests soloction or selections They thon nominate delegates in their respective caucuses to go totholr respec tive county conventions to ratify tho first presidencys secret conclave selec tions Iain as confident as that I live and have a being whoever tho priest hood puts or causes to bo piU on their ticket will got tho Taithful LatterDay Saints vote When such is done in my mind it Is only tho strongth of one mans ballot What a burlesque on freemens liberties and tho sacrodnoss of the bal lot What could bo moro dangerous to a Ilopublicau form of government than tho vote by tho Mormon of the Mormon and for tho Mormon instead of of tho pcoplo for tho pooplo and by tho pooplo as free Americans I think such Is dan gerous enough to the liberties of free men and froo women Now is tho time for tho Government to act und show its authority whether tho theocratic form of government is going to thrive under the stars and and perpetuate its fraud In of tho free and their ballots to bo equal with froo mens God forbid I think any church or crocd that in any way vises undue in lluences with its membersballots should not succeed in having thoir ballots counted by tho judges of oloction where over the American lag flies SIXCKtttTY TflK STUKNGTII OK Tho Mormons have always boon a very peculiar pooplo and so taught to bo by thoir priesthood that tho Latter day Saints wore a separate and distinct people from all others and I am conn dent that is one of tho truest things they over taught I will say with all candor as to tho characteristics of tho Mormons they are lawabiding whoroin tho priesthood con linns tho law They accept all doctrines with tho greatest sincerity good or bad if thoy come through tho priesthood Implicit obedience must bo given all their re quirements Tho irst confidence tho pooplo gain is through tho first principles tho gospel Tho gospel was hljrhly cherished by tho devout for thoir souls salvation in the eternal world thoy are taughtthny must tako stop after stop toattisin tho higbor glories in tho full ness of tho gospol to rocoivo everlasting joys I am confident that tho rules above have caused tho pooploto bo willing to submit to very erroneous and bad idoas for tho love thoy had for the first principles oT the gospol Thoy have had question tho abomi nations of their leaders thoy have had snch implicit confidence in thorn thoy would do right to thorn and through them God would bring a deliverer in time of noed for tho masses and officials of thoir church Still they have through snch transgressed all tho principles of tho laws of God over commanded thorn to keep 1 will say as I have passed through tho slough of despondency as I am socking for moro and bettor light of a and loving God of truth and liberty I hopo those in darkness will yot come to soo it in tho same light and retrace thoir I fool sorry for tho people who have boon led to do so wrong in tho name of religion May such chains of slavery be broken which sur round thorn What a mockery of God to say thoy teach tho true gospel of Christ How can that be possible when in 1363 I wont through tho Endowment Ilousn with others and took such bloodcurdling oaths for Christs sake I repeat it I regrot it and confidontnow though no positive samo hatred is taught in tho othertemples in Utah And to ssiy thatthisis to please God is simply preposterous to think That God should be cruel and un merciful to all what coukl bo moro tyrannical and innocent pco plos minds than that I say such Is a nionstrosity It is as unnatural repulsive to a sensitive persons mind does that compare with tho Now teachings while thoy profess to teach the only and true gospol of I Christ Does He not say Swear not all neither by tho heavens nor by the earth neither shall thou swearby thy y head because thou canst not make oho hair black but lot your coin It muni cations be yea yoa nay nay for is more than Matthew chapter 4 34 36i 37Whon I read such verses it hypocrites jnakfrig a God and all that our frceJand WhenIpassGd through such wonder at so disloyal tlons and tho transgressing of the laws I say such as tho ubovo are general and tho groat strength of Tho leaders have not only gob tho peor ploSCOn fid once through the lovo of the gospel of Christ as I am satisfied they hold thorn through fear of their death will say with tho pcoplo under such obligations can thoy be froo men and froo women How can they vote assuch I say no thoy are in a religious trough similar to the trough ofllussla therefore I say injustice to tho whole people an effort should bo made for selfpreservation I must say there arcdifferent diseases which require heroic remedies to ac complish beneficent and lasting results Wo have a disease here which seems to have battled the most skilled physicians such as the lawmakers and which seems to be cankering the vory vitals of free thought of the American people and I am confident tho most speedy and effec tive remedy should bo applied to ac complish the most speedy and lasting results for the sake of our names as wol an tho people to whom good is sought to bo done I am of the opinion that tho Government will do right in disfranchising tho Mormon people as an antidote or the above disease with Aunt Jemimas sticking plaster to act as a concomitant to draw thorn up to glory Now as celestial glory is left out and they cannot go up that way or if thoy wish to stay and reap tho pleasures of Uncle Sams domains Wilford Wood ruff had hotter have a revelation an nulling theocracy and indorsing tho will of the pooplo of tho United States I do not think any person or persons fit for American citizenship who hold a higher alligicncc and cannot see God in tho will of tho American people The vital point to attack is a government within a government Give them tho Edmunds or Strublo bill that will bo tho solution of tho Mormon question Such will break the chain of tyranny of tho people and bo a lasting benefit to them and the country at large thon tho younger people in time will call on God to bless tho promoters of remedies which cut the cankered ulcer loose which is fixed in tho blunted and narrow contracted minds of tho LatterDay Saint priests that will show thorn the American people still livoand do not tolerate such men to administer the laws ofa Tree people Monrc SCHOOLS NECESSARY In all history tho priests have ruled where thoy had tho power with an Iron hand through a union of religious fanaticism with ignorance civilization comes as it is coining hero in time tho priesthoods barbarous customs must fall to tho ground as tho leaves fall Irom tho trees in their seasons to decay and make room for moro arid now growth of life amivigor with the budding of a now years growth So lot us hope tho rising generation will emulate tho above ox amplo by infusing new life seeking all moral social political arid in tolloctual powers for thoir good and in behalf of the human family Those are tho groat lovers to the kingdom of God ofthis world and tho world to como thon I yo that is free to choose his life and what hell be Nature in tho gift of God has brought forth all good Inexhaustible resources to make a grand and happy whole for the human family rightly applied to accom plish beneficent and lasting results What wo noed is bettor and moro schools to educate tho rising generation to make them free Americans with good colleges as assistants to tho higher branches of study and a better way of doing business start moro manufactur ing so as to bring in a bettor and moro thrifty intelligent class of pooplo and so bring moro money the great balm to soothe and makB tho homos moro happy and Inviting Only have ono cove nant and that to bo for tho brother and sisterhood tho happiness of all mankind Have moro sympathy for our glorious Union and loss for tho sensual power of tho Mormon God WHAT TO TEACH The priesthood iiv the past did teach and does at tho present teach a strict obedience to its requirements But I say to thorn by way of advice to accept thoir priostsr teaching as far as it is right and does not interfere with tho political social and moral welfare of tho human family as wo wore all created froo and equal and wo are not enemies to thoir pooplo but friends and we wish thorn all lawful protection under the law Teach them to reverence and not interfere with tho freedom of tho mind tho pross tho homo and tho laws of our common country Teach them not to obey their priesthood in all things for that Is a snaro and delusion which in tho end drifts back to savagery and crime Teach thorn slavery of any name or nature cannot exist or bo toler ated with a beneficent froo and cultured pooplo Teach thorn to roveronco their Creator and truthful God that ho docs not double deal that he doos not toach falsehoods to accomplish his ends as do tho Mormon priests but truths Toach them to honor the first principles of creation that ono woman bo with ono man she to bo tho wife mother and queen of tho household Not as it has boon hero for half a century a whole brood of Asiatic concubinage not a wife but a stigma attached to her name as well as to tho name of her inuo cont offspring according to the rule of civilizedcountries Teach thorn such loads thorn to degradation and woe Teach them to vote like free men Thoy must not bo put under death penalties not to divulge a thuggish gospol by such means thoy will bo slaves to a fan atical and a despotic priesthood with snclr freedom becomes a snaro and a do THE GOVKRXMEXT DERELICT I think our Government is very dere lict in not protecting her citixons and punishing the ovildoors moro thoroughly just as much so as tho parent if he fails to punish tho unruly children The boars andforbears until a time comes when the loving parents kindness ceases to be a virtue and the final out conio is a corrects oil for tho sake of tho balance of the childrens welfare There by peace is restored to the household 1 think similarly with our worthy to this much vexed ques tion Mormonism Patience has ceased to be a virtue Tho peaceful re lations aro strained to their utmost ca pacity and a correctionday shonldcome and bo given to eriing ones as the circumstances and facts in tho case require for thojsalvO of themselves and of our national honor I think when a people sock to bo a law unto themselves as tho Saints have shown in their overyday acts from tho landed here to tho present time to nullify the laws and unify thorn solves as a body of people Tho Govern ment will act if thoy hold snch peopleunder more stringent till they show their allegiance tho and show a willing kind ricss to tho lawful authorityf When that is done then givo them their leges and lull protection under tho law I fool to have chailty for tno masses of the people but havo none forliccnso nor tho power to commit unhallownoss and doubledealing among the innocent and oppressed If otherwise with myknowledge of tho situation I should doan injury But tho unscrupulous thoir cunning lor gain and of tho contempt citizens When a set of priests hayo put their under such a yoke of superstitious Asiatic thuggish tyranny such as was proven United States Third Judicial Dis trict Court of Utah last year I think it is time to show the lawful authority as I am confidentthe Mormon Church au thority would have done were they in the same place as our lawful authority is today andI am confident the erring ones would get their deserts whatever they might be I say God help the peo ple out of such superstitious chains of exclusivencss and narrow mindediiess Oh lift those chains of slavery and lust ful barbarism from them When this can be done we then can hold out the olive branch of peace TJIK SOKKOWS OF POLYGAMY I will try and relate a short circum stance with reference to my observations of a polygamists One of the family I arn endeared to by ties of nature and she is as dear to me as my own life This is a sorrowful trial of a young mother Her darling infant looked at one timo to be a child of promise But alas a very sudden change came over it Its little blue eyes commenced to growdim and dimmer tho child became1 prostrate and the mother was compelled to watch day and night at her little darlings bedside still watching it with all tender care and nursing The child went on day after day withits sufferings amid tho tears of the sorrowful mother as she feared for the life of her dear one till at last tho little sufferer had to subinit to tho final agonies God relieved the dear ones sufferings with death amid tho tears of the fond mother She had a very sorrowful heart almost ready to melt but she with the balance of her husbands wives felt as they had done all tney could for the little sufferer and committed its care to the Giver of all good and as the Savior said suffer the little children to come unto Him and forbid them not for of such is tho kingdom of they were sure the sweet little darling had gone to the angels in heaven when it closed its eyes in death But there was a circumstance in connection with the childs father as regards his exhibit of a parents tender nursing of tho dear little sufferer Did the parent do all that lay in his power in that trying and sorrowful case to com fort his sorrowful wife I am sorry to say no He was devoid of that tender fooling a parent and husband should havo at such a timo as that He came out with his early teaching as she with his other wives had transgressed his will and counsel the Lord was displeased with them andas a punishment to them the Lord was taking their children home to him Tho claim seemed to almost break tho womens hearts once more think they should bo accused in that manner 1 must tell your many readers what counsclthe wives had broken they simply had spoken against him getting moro wives and ho at the timo was able to keep what ho did have I felt sorrowful to see tho trouble but was powerless to help thorn so they had to put up with and they and others will until tho God of liberty breaks the chains of superstition from them The women are more sincere as to polygamy now than men thoy think celestial marrying is all right but the tho men do not act right Celestial marriage is tho most vital part of their belief for them to attain a celes tial glory in tho heaven above The women do not as far as I havo had a knowledge in Utah matters like polyg amy thoy take it more as a cross as it has been installed in their innocent minds from the cradle up to woman hood that they must endure all things to gain their final glory as tho greater thoir punishment hero tho greater their exaltation in heaven God grant the innocent and deceived a deliverance from such bondage and deception on account of the womens dovotedness to principle while thoir prophets are only worthyof contempt of all good men and women Tho prophet who gives up tho principle of polygamy now is a double dealing cringing hypocrite and I hope the strong arm of will now be enforced Allow me to call the attention of the LatterDay Saints to a fact in the days of Brigham Young Do they not re member him preaching in tho old Taber nacle in Salt Lake City that he only had one honest bishop in tho Territory and that was old Bishop Stoker of Bountiful If tlioy do not I do A short time after thatBrighara had the revela tion ou tho Order of Enoch Now I would like to call their attention to one fact Did ho send for what was consid ered tho honest men in the Church to baptize the people into tho order I say Ho sent to tho best of my knowl edge for what he had called t the dishonest bishops to go and attend to the baptizing oL the people Tho peo ple all seemed to bo willing to obey the command as emanating from God with tho exception of tho wooden leg The people seem quite sincere as to the re quirements of tho order just tho same tfiey had boen in other tyrannical toach ings J said when I heard of tho or dor being for tho pooplo it capped tho climax for a gigantic church swindle prophet of God wanting all the deeds to the church members property to hold thorn in trust for them Many very many joined the order and thought it good gospel Brighanvmado tho remark at that the saints property wasthere was their God also and theChurch would be sure of its members Brigham thenremarked in connection with the order you tie the calf up to the fence tho cow would be bound to come home to let her calf suck So I thought with reference to Brigham Young wanting to tie the people up to him with the Order of Enoch so their salvation would be sure and have to call on tho Church pap for succor and support I noticed a circumstancein this vicin ity with reference to the order A young man seemed to want to have his faith tried by going into the order through He waded jup to his waist in the water and the wooden leg seemed to bo a very unruly mem ber for the order on account of its floating in I have no as to the inspiration of that leg The known there was something wrongwiththe order as the sur face of the water The ceremony was The elder of Jesus Christ baptized the young man for the remission of his sins and for tho renewal of hiscovenants with God and his breth ren and for the observohce of the rules that had been read in their bearing in the name of the Father and of tho Son and of Holy Ghost So the young mans body was immersed went under the water wooden leg floated on the top of the water I said to an oldtime Libei al time Look look there at that leg see see ft floats so nicely on the top of the water He said Yes yes well well well there is logic in that wooden leg to bo sure isnt there I said Yes theie is It did not want to have its faith tried as did Abraham of Tho leg seemed to bo more inspired than his body ami must havo known the Order of Enoch was a swindle in the name of the Lorili Oh its to he u Saint 1 Yo its good to bo Sainl Its good to lx a Stunt in very deed Who would not hko to buy r Im a Mormon JOHX BOJTD Summit County Utah 30 1890 BOKS LITERARY LEAVES How to Make Money in the liter ary Market of ToDay The Deluge of Poor Work Creating a Greater Demand for Good Work Why the Percentage of Accepted Manuscripts Is So Value of Literary Pen Work No Longer Necessary to a Financial Literary Clear Analysis of the Modern Liter ary Poet Who Cant Find Time to Editors Literary Para graphs of Busy Authors and Com ing Books by the Bok Syndicate ConnaspoNDKNCE YORK Doc 2 1890 I recently had the curiosity to enquire quite exhaustively into the actual per centage of manuscripts which are ac cepted by tho publishing houses for book publication I am not now refer ring to the magazines in any way My inquiries resulted in the showing that the combined percentage is less than 3 per to be exact just 1 per cent I know this will not be encour ing to literary aspirants but such is tho actual fact And what is still more discouraging this percentage represents in a largo measure solicited manu scripts I have included all classes of literary work in this fic tion essays biography etc DELUGE OF TOOK LITEfiAKY WOKK I asked one publisher what the small ness of this percentage conveyed in words Simply she said and I am nowquoting oneof the leading pub lishers whose words are worth con sideration that there is an enormous amount of poorwork being done so much of it that the hunt for a kernel of wheat in a bundle of a dozen or two manuscripts is full of discouragement from tho start It is nearly all chaff 33ad work is glutting the market and never relied so little upon unsoli cited manuscripts as we do today Our strongest books are written upon tho groundwork laid out and mapped out by our literary advisers and then given to some skillful writer We are compelled to study and ferret out tho literary wants of tho public more closely today than ever before because no clue is con voyed in the manuscripts which come to us as was tho case a score of years ago Why blessyoursoul if we relied upon what camo shouldnt add six books to our listhra year There is not only a overproduction at feature of it is that the taken as a whole is way way below even the middlewater mark and scldomyyea very seldom ap proaches tho hightide THE LITJSRABY MARKET There Is no cionbt about it but there is a crying demand today in the offices of book houses and magazines for good literary work The authors who can be counted upon to do really good work are kept busy in fact that I know several who cannot lill their orders and are refusing all new overtures And these arc not writers of fame either They are men and women who have an accurate idea of the good part of the reading public wants and have the brains to supply it For such literary workers there is an abundance of room Jt is not a question of reputation it is entirely one of correctly filling a want And that yoimg author of today is wisest who firstascertains what is needed and then tries to supply stead of the fas thousands are doing today and missing fire The best literary training for the modern young writer is that which teaches him the demand rather than the supply That is one class for which literary success is almost certain MTEIIAKY STEED OF TJIE HOTJB There is too another aching go to speak in the literary market to day and that is creative minds Give me a young man or is neither a hindrance nor an who has first and foremost a correct idea of the literary the times and secondly a creative mind and ho or she need never write a line for print to insure a quick and large success mean financial success The fact is that there never was a time when good literaryideas are so valuable and so scarce as at present Theory of today with the modern magazine is for fea tures and and the person who can supply this need in a bright original is the literary need of the hour Literary competition is vary fact and original ity tells The tlio publisher absorbed in his daily duties has little chance for thought and hero is where the outsider can step in and with profit Editors and publishers arc al way steady to entertain a fresh idea a striking course always barring the sensational they are seeking in fact for the man or woman of creative mind Here is truly not only the literary need of the hour but of the moment The need is there the question is Where are the people to meet it VALUE OF LITERAUY IDEAS A primitive literary worker said to me only evenings ago whiletalking on this subject Do you mean to say that literary commercial commodities today and are paid for the same as articles or stories I told her as I write here Most decidedly as those who are in position to know are well aware I have known as high as paid for a single circula tion a again ana again have I being paid Said an editor in my hearing only recently I dont want people who can write I can reach a score of such with in an What T want is ideas sug gestions for striking features which will raise my periodical above the others and attract the public eye to And ho voiced the feeling of whom I know A creative mind capable of clever adaptation of an idea to a demand is in the literary world1 to day which I envy any man or woman if put to good use iAN EDITORS FAIRNESS That editors are heartless ever regardful of themselves always re gardless of the become almost a proverb in the minds of hun dreds of literary people especially those whose editoial experience limited Once in a while an instance leaks out which shows tho fallacy of this belief and thefollowing is such a one Quito a wellknown author not long ago sent a poem to a prominent maga zine Tho poem read accepted and1a generous check was author who thoroughly satisfied with the amount paid The poem1 was laid by for awhile when it was again read by the time with a view to illustration The merit of tho verses not only again appealed to tho editor but so strikiugly did it impress itself upon him on a second reading that he had another check made out and for warded to the author with a note say ing that the editor felt the previous amount insufficient with the striking merit of the work The cynical mind will say Yes but snch a course is Not at all my friend only the instances come to light who is the editor in this case Well I will give the names Mr Aldcn of Harpers Magazine the author Dr S Weir Mitchell and the poem The Quaker published in tho Novem ber issue of the magazine LITERARY DOIXGS AXD NEWS I learned from tho best authority a few days ago that Mr George W Childss volume of Recollections had reached a over copies with the assurance of the publishers besides that the demand for the book was as lively at present as at any time since its publication James Whitcomb Eiley is a busy liter ary worker Some one recently asked the poet to do a piece of work and ho replied I cant In the writing line I was never so involved before Even the hope of waking to find myself famous is denied me since I havent timoin which to fall Horatio Alger the famous
