The Resolution goes into explicit detail about what Islamic-observant students are permitted to eat and what they must avoid eating, as well as stating who made those determinations. Whereas , The practice of Islam is determined by the Islamic teachings as guided by the holy book Quran and the Hadith, and sayings of the Prophet Mohammad, which includes observing dietary laws; and Whereas , Islamic dietary laws delineate foods that are halal, meaning lawful or permitted, and those that are haram, meaning not permitted; and Whereas , Haram foods include pork and its by-products, meat and poultry not slaughtered according to the Islamic dietary law, alcohol and foods prepared with and containing alcohol, foods containing blood and blood by-products, and foods containing whey prepared with non-microbial enzyme, rennet, animal shortening, monoglycerides and diglycerides from an animal source, sodium stearoyl lactylate, and L-cysteine.
The proposed Resolution concedes that there is no accurate way to determine how many New York City schoolchildren are Muslim, and of those who are Muslim, how many observe strict halal guidelines. Undeterred by the lack of hard information, the legislators pointed to the Detroit public school system where 35 percent of the students are estimated to be Muslim. In Detroit, the school district began a halal pilot program in which has expanded to 35 schools in the district.
In addition to pointing to Detroit as a school district where such a program was implemented, the legislators turned to another argument to bolster their demands. The percentage of Muslim children in public schools is growing, and too many children are denied the nutritional benefits lunch would provide because of religious dietary restrictions. As a community, we have to make sure our children receive the best education in environments in which their religious beliefs and practices are respected.
No child should leave a lunchroom or enter a classroom hungry. Of course, there are other students in the New York City public schools who have religious dietary requirements. That would be Jewish observant children. Lani Lowell Separation of church and state. This will be a good forum to show them the door. Kosher is totally acceptable for Muslims to eat. I brought lunch to my nyc ps because we were kosher. Schools have an obligation to provide education.
I hear Saudia Arabia calling you home! Time to go where all your comforts are and stop trying to conform everyone else! Separation of church and state. Times Square, the shoe bomber, Rabbi Kahane shot by muslim? Muslims are trying to take over…. These guys just can't help but shove their way of life down everyone's throat. Will be the same here in Australia soon, cannot believe governments bow down to this lunatic religion. We all need a wake up call and oppose this crap.
What about a solution where no child is hungry at school? I think its possible if those deciding work with all students dietary needs. Ignoramus comments from any of us are disgusting! The issue is separation of state and religion. If you Muslims want halal food in the school , go back to your own country and put all the damned halal food in your schools that you want, but you have no say in this country, so get out. A little at a tine…the weirdos over tgere, then before you know it, it is creeping into your town!
WHY can they get away with forcing their lifestyle onto the public… making the state pay for it? Many — I would say most — Muslim young people don't observe Halal anyways, other than avoiding pork products. And therein lies the problem!! What fool has allowed the enemy to immigrate to this country?
If you can't eat the food, bring your own. If this culture needs a specific food it is understandable, so New Your will have to put in separate freezer and food storage area. Also create a separate serving line for this culture. But at no time should this accommodation force their cultures food on anyone else. The Muslims will take us back to primitive days if they are allowed to breed as they do now in our cities.

If Jews, Catholics, vegetarian Hindus, Buddhists etc. Someone else said it, keep religion out of public schools. Andrea, the article did say that there is a vegetarian option that is available for them. This is great for NY….. NY Jews vote liberal at every opportunity. Let this liberal snake pit reap what it sows. They are all a bunch of stupid frogs just sitting around while the water gets hotter and hotter.
Why cant they look at different ways to provide lunch so the children can eat together and appreciate each others differences? Like having potluck days or food coops. I would want to share my diest even if its merely educational. It could mean adjusting staff to allow for more flexibility. It could mean vegetarian lunches as a default. I would feel awful eating my diet if it wasnt honored by the school. As a former public school teacher, I can say I didnt like the rigidity of school systems.
He most certainly believes that. Well, my Christian friends. State and religion are separate matters, per our Constitution! Why do Taxpayers have to pay for your special lunches?? Interesting point , because the kids will only learn one thing if this passes and is implemented, that Muslims can DEMAND what they want from America and will get it. Not good training unless you want a mini generation of sociopaths! That should be provided by parents.

They must adapt to our culture. The Boston bombers were motivated by extreme militant Islamic beliefs. Many of the Mosques are breeding grounds for home grown terrorists. Islam berg, in New York is a breeding ground for over 30 militant training compounds in America today.
The media has yet to uncover the truth. Sad to say, they are making inroads into every facet of our lives and trying to change our culture, under the guise of the first amendment.
Already, they are changing our schools, universities, cities, towns and even our own government has been infiltrated. They want Sharia law and will stop at nothing to see that it happens. School textbooks are being changed to put Islam in a more favorable light.

It is stated that they came from Virginia and North Carolina. Whether he came with just his family group or other relatives is not certain. There were several Wheeler families in other Indiana Counties.
Other records of this family of Wheelers indicate they were living in Shelby and Deleware Counties. The following article was obtained from an early history of Gibson County, Indiana, from Princeton library. Tartts History of Gibson County, Indiana: Benjamin father died June 2, aged 57,? George brother son of Benjamin and Naomi died December 16, James Wheeler, who also had a large family. A wife, five sons and 4 daughters. He was a peculiar sort of a man, fond of fun, and occasionally enjoyed taking part in a hand to hand fight, and at gatherings such as log rollings or muster days.
Wheeler was sure to imbibe quite freely and then get into a misunderstanding with someone, which would generally result in a fist fight. Wheeler though a man of small stature was very spry and active and mostly came out victorious.
He settled in the timber east about five miles from Princeton in the summer of where he erected a cabin, cleared a small tract of land, but his subsistence for himself and family for the first year was gained principally by hunting, as he arrived too late in the summer to make a crop. He became quite a noted hunter, and proved himself to be quite a valuable acquisition to the settlement.
He was foremost in repelling any Indian aggresions and frequently boasted that he was not afraid of the redskins, and he proved it, because on the breaking out of Indian troubles he promptly enlisted, as did three of his sons, and participted in the battle of Tippecanoe. The war over and peace declared, he returned to his country home, where he lived the quiet life of a farmer for a number of years, and he and his wife died after filling in usefulness their allotted time.

Europe is losing the battle and America in less than a generation will be next. Where is the condemnation from the nearly 3 Million Muslims that are here, have you heard a word from them?
Their silence speaks volumes on their real intent to destroy us from within and have no intention of ever living within our culture. They want Sharia law in America today folks. They want to wage war against freedom and democracy and have America continue to make concessions for them. They just accomplished that fact, in England this week. Islam is a political ideology; it is the antithesis of a free society.
One generation of silence on the issue due to political correctness is all it takes. What you do today and tomorrow will affect your children and grandchildren and future generations of America, yet unborn.
Stand up and be counted to defeat this real threat from within. Voice your opinion, let your congressmen, senators and school boards know how you feel on the issue. Our freedom and liberty is at stake, be part of the solution folks. Forget about being labeled and simply do what is right for America. We need a permanent solution, time is running out. Let us not become the next Europe. As for me I refuse to be silent on the issue. One person can make a difference, but think if were united, what a difference we can make to turn back the tide and doctrine of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Thank you, and please forward this to millions. Let me know your opinions. There is no such thing as 'moderate Islam. How dare they come here thinking they with do as they please and push aside our American way of doing things. They can have their ethnic food at home.
Notice how many Muslims make up the council, nearly all of them…There should be a rule against how many can make up the council…. We have people from a lot of countries here and none have been as demanding on changes as Muslims. They made the decision to come to America, so they should learn to adapt. I can't believe the good people of these Countries are allowing this to happen? What a funny photo! It says it all! They are here to take over. It is the most humane. Based on the vast majority of Islamist who have traveled out of their land only to create havoc in other countries tells me we don't need them here or anywhere else they can't conform.
Because they get shot at….. So ridiculous; they are truly trying to take over. Who is on the council? Why would they cave in? The animal doesn't feel the slitting of its throat. Get real here fight for our country or were going to loose it plan and semple!!!!!. There were never any concessions made when I was attending as a Jewish student, and concessions should not be made now.
If my mother wanted me eating something specific, for whatever reason, she packed my lunches. The school was not required to make any concessions for any religious belief system in terms of food. Why is this all of a sudden such an immense issue?!
DeBlasio will pass it but then again it will make them that much easier to pick out of a crowd when the time comes to separate the from the American society.
Why are we catering to these people and to no other religion this is just wrong We either do it for all religion or none of them. Pack your own lunch muslim or go back where you came from then I want tacos for my Mexican students. Ahron, I doubt that… if they react to a brand, or a cut, or any other skin sore, I would bet they feel it and the die slowly, scared and suffering. In England they get whatever they ask for. They are also allowing Sharia law be put into our laws.
These are evil people determined to take over the world. They should be shipped out to the desert. Wait, wouldn't a requirement like this be the government itself involving religion in a state run institution? If they can demand a religiouly dictacted diet, then why can't Christians demand a christmas tree in the lobby?
Maybe if they were to quit catering to every whim of the liberals and their ilk they would be more solvent. Go back to offering the same meal plan that was acceptable and feadible for generations before this…. What about a free trip to the Palestine which never existed.
Maybe they will demand that every restaurant, cafeteria, dining establishment offer Halal to the exclusion of Kosher and other dietary options. That is morally wrong. Avoid food that cause allergies. You are correct Rick. Years ago, before there were any Halal meat places in my town, those who observed Halal did their shopping at the Kosher butchers. Therefore, two religious groups could be accommodated easily enough by requiring that Kosher food be made available. Of course, the whole matter stinks — this is public school; if you have a special dietary need, bring the food from home.
The schools should do so much to accommodate dietary restrictions no pork, for example, nothing cooked in alcohol , but the rest should be up to the parents. If food is brought from home and is cold by lunchtime, too bad. For years and years, NYC schoolchildren received their packed lunch from Home and then ate it at school.
Why not concentrate on major problems and issues like crime, congested traffic, street vendors and the crazies walking the streets. NYC Bd of Ed should not cater to any religious demands. Just ask and you will get Kosher meals. That is what the Muslims did. Can not give to one group and not another. That would be discrimination. I wonder how many other dietary laws there are that must be observed? Valerie Haslett You allowed them to take over, blame yourself.
It is still not to late to throw them out. Australia basically told them not to come. Konrad Omeltschenko Dds because the lack of oxygen and blood to the brain means that it is brain dead. A bullet to the brain takes many minutes to take affect.
This has been checked by measuring the electrical output of the brain. It is a crime to propose such a bill. Legislators are elected to represent all the people of their district. Tom Dunne , well, for the men at least. The crime would be in passing the bill. I applaud what the Muslim community is doing. If the Gentiles did not like this they could leave and go to hell.
Nine-tenths of the people of the Territory were Southern sympathizers; the North was wrong, and this people sympathized with the South. On Sunday, September 24, there were regular church services at the Bowery in this city, where the summer worship is conducted, and the congregation ranges from 3, to 6, Brigham was absent on a Southern tour, and Heber Kimball presided.
I did not attend the morning services, but five gentlemen from New York who were present assured me that Heber's remarks were intensely disloyal. Among other excuses for his bitterness, he said to his hearers: Colfax never said any thing of the kind, but such statements serve to embitter the people, who receive as Gospel truth whatever their leaders tell them.
In the afternoon I found the Bowery densely crowded. Upon the platform sat Heber" wearing his hat, which he seldom lays aside and several other church leaders. The preaching, as it invariably is, was extemporaneous. Heber called up speaker after speaker, and all responded without hesitancy or preparation.
I believe it is their theory that the Spirit of God inspires them. The method has made all the prominent "brethren" fluent speakers, and developed their capacity for thinking on their legs.
Whenever Heber thought one had talked long enough, he checked him whenever he thought one venturing on dangerous ground, he cautioned him. When Brigham presides, he often checks Heber. Nearly all Mormons of capacity are sent, sooner or later, to some foreign country, to preach the Gospel, of the Latter-Day Saints. The first speaker this afternoon was Elder J. Byrd, with bald forehead long, flowing hair, and long beard which swept his breast.
He appeared in sable broadcloth and black kid gloves. He had just came back from a mission of three years and a half. He had tried to do his duty faithfully, and had led some into the kingdom though he found about nine-tenths of the people infidels, disbelievers in the bible. It was not pleasant preaching abroad in the open air, where he was liable at any moment to have a buckshot thrown at his head; but God had kept all the promises He made to him at the outset. At first every one asked him about the great American war, which had now ended, or rather, ceased for a time.
He told them all that it would last while he stayed abroad. On the very day before he left England they received news that "an assassin or somebody had killed President Lincoln; and on the day before that, intelligence of Lee's surrender.
The war had ceased only for a time. Thirty years ago Brother Joseph Smith predicted that war would begin in South Carolina and spread throughout the world as a punishment for its wickedness. All over Europe now the most stupend-i-ous preparations ever witnessed were being made for war. Hardy, a native of Massachusetts, who is the husband of four wives, was next called upon. Tall, closely shaven, with thin face, heaven-ward nose, and straight brown hair, he also appeared in black.
His brief exhortation was made with some clearness and force. As all the leaders do, he dwelt much upon the wonderful growth and prosperity of the Mormons, as evidence that they are specially protected by the Almighty. Suppose he had; he would have been no worse on't than Christ was, when he was persecuted. It would not have hurt him any more than it hurt Stephen, when he was stoned to death. God would carry them through.
The longer he lived the more he narveled at what God had done for them; the prospect looked brighter and brighter; religion seemed bitter and better. The next speaker was Bishop A. Raleigh, in a suit of brown linen, a medium-sized, smooth-faced man, evidently popular with the congregation. But if I keep on speaking I shall probably say something. I am helping in every possible way to build up the Kingdom of God. That's the job I have on hand -- to work in the domestic affairs of God's Kingdom.
We can't all be teachers and prophets; but we can all serve Him by doing our duty, wherever it lies. So was my father. He fought in the revolution for its liberties, and to build up the Constitution and its laws.
I am in favor of the Constitution; but it has been departed from. We will bring the country back to it. I have never feared the result in the little brushes we have had with Uncle Sam, or rather he with us. I knew we should come out all right. We mean to have our rights. Let them talk about this 'twin relic. But the time is coming when we shall ask no odds of them. We don't ask any now -- here. Let them come to overpower us if they want to.
We will show them when they get here -- or, rather, a little before they get here. Only don't let us go to bring them; let us stay here and mind our own business.
He asked me, 'where do you get your iron? So it will continue to be. If we are wise and keep our plates turned up, the porridge will run into them. They pretend to rule us. They send out Governors for us. As long as they suit us, we keep them; when they don't, they soon get a ticket of leave.
We shall discomfit our enemies. We shall see our Church -- the Kingdom of God -- spread over the whole land. I expect to live to see that. Our children will see it spread over the whole earth. That is my prophesy. It is God's truth. May God bless us all. That expedition, from the abandoned wagons and arms it left behind, supplied tlie Mormons with iron and guns, in addition to enriching them by the money paid tor wheat aud other supplies.
Financially, it was a Godsend to them; and its result greatly increased the power and prestige of their leaders among the masses. David O'Calder was next called up, and made a brief, Christian address, upon the practical duties of life. He was followed by Heber himself -- who was formed in a coarser mold than Brigham, and with far less caution. Once he said to a Gentile in this city: I pray that they may go to Hell across lots! To-day he arose without it. His "sermon" was a remarkable jumble; one-third Adminidab Sleek, and one-third John C.
Calhoun in disloyalty, not ability , one-third circus-clown. The following report somewhat softens its ruggedness and coarseness. I am a little jovial; it is my way; my fathers were. And I tell the truth, and everybody who hears me knows it. Do you think God will associate with anybody who lies?
They thought what I said was foolishness. They think what the brethern have said this afternoon is foolishness. But so it always is. The things of God must be foolishness to those out of the kingdom. We believe the Bible. To the Gentiles present. We believe this Book of Mormon. It was written on plates, and its place of burial revealed to Joseph Smith by the Angel Moroni, the only angel who has appeared on this continent, and of which the Indian tribes are relics.
God revealed it to me thirty-three years ago. We were instructed to teach to this generation only repentance, remission of sins, laying on of hands and baptism, Not sprinkling -- there is no such word as sprinkle in the Bible; but immersion -- to be buried in the liquid, as John was buried.
How could he be buried if he was only sprinkled. The burial is typical of death, and the coming out typical of the resurrection. That was the trouble between the North and the South. The Abolitionists of the North stole [our] niggers and caused it all. The nigger was well off and happy. How do you know this, brother Heber?
Why, God bless your soul, I used to live in the South, and I know. Now they have set the nigger free, and a beautiful thing they have done for him, haven't they? My father bled in the revolution for our liberties. I, his son, have been five times robbed and driven out by Gentile persecutors, I and my brothers, Charles and Samuel.
They threaten to come here and destroy us. I am the boy that will resist them. There are 50, or 75, people in this valley, to whom I have preached it in other lands.
That's the reason you are here. We had been driven out from Kirtland O. Joseph Smith said 'Go,' and I went. I preached God's truth. Any man who is not willing to be saved as I have been, will be damned. I first baptized two sick women. They had to be carried in beds from the carriages to the water. The doctors had given them up. But when I baptized them, both recovered, from that hour.
One was brother George Watt's mother; the other was sister Wormsley. Many were healed by touching the hem of my garments. I did not know it, but they was. Why, as I told you this morning, I have got property enough. I didn't steal it. I worked for it. I am a working feller. If you don't believe it, come up to my house and see; come and help me a little, I will start the sweat on you. I will raise the dander on your jacket.
Come and grind wheat with me I am a miller. I am a blacksmith -- learned the trade of my father. Come up and I will show you. I am a potter. I learned that trade. You don't believe it?
Then come up and see if I don't mold you into something. And I am as good a carpenter as there is in this Territory. They are a great deal more plenty than they used to be They are disgusted with the corruption and oppression of the United States.
To the Gentile hearers: Some, who settle here, want to steal our wives and daughters. Before they came, we were at peace. We never had a lawsuit till the Judges came. And as for the stinking lawyers -- why a lawyer is the damndest thing in the world! He is even worse than a priest. Officials are sent among us. All of them but two or three are hostile, and Want to destroy us. Does it make much difference? Let's see; have we a Governor now, or is there one coming?
A Voice -- "There is one coming. All the Governor has to do is to pay the Legislature and administer justice. Are the Governors our masters? No, sir; not for me; they are our servants.
We have our Apostolic Government. Brigham Young is our lender, our President, our Governor. I am Lieutenant Governor Ain't I a terrible feller? Why, it has taken the hair all off my head.
I lost it in my hardships while going out to preach the kingdom of God, without purse or scrip. Oh, don't be scart at me!
Come up to my house and see me. I will give you some peaches, and make you happy. I have two sons abroad preaching the Kingdom of God.
Brother Byrd says they are good boys. It makes me proud to hear it. I want the time to come when I can send out fifty of my sons to preach, all at one lick. Come up and see me. I will give you some peaches. I will give some apples. I would give you some meat it I had it, but I am about out. I don't hate you because you are strangers.
May God bless all good men and women; that is my blessing. May God bless the strangers. And so ended the Sunday "religious" services. I am assured that they are fair specimens of the Mormon preaching, though less hostile to the Government than the average.
Though it was not stated in so many words, the plain, direct, only inference from the language was that if any possible attempt should be made to render the Anti-Polygamy law operative they would resist it by force of arms. According to statements published in the Mormon papers, and the concurrent testimony of all Gentiles whether in civil life or connected with the army, the Mormons are perfecting their military organization which extends throughout the Territory, drilling the people, and of late, with peculiar earnestness and zeal, obtaining all the arms and ammunition thev can purchase from discharged soldiers, miners and others.
But the act is utterly inoperative. The selection of jurors is in the hands of Mormon officials. The one-man power is supreme. Brigham young is the Church and the Territory. Of course, the masses here, as everywhere else, are sincere: They have no free schools. They read no newspapers, except those of their own faith. The Church of Rome, in its palmiest days, never expected and received more perfect allegiance from its followers than is rendered to Brigham. No Mormon jury could be impaneled which would convict of polygamy -- indeed, of any thing -- contrary to the mandate of Brigham.
Hence the law is not only a dead letter, but a scoff and a by-word. The Mormons profess to believe it unconstitutional. But if they were sincere in that belief, their remedy would be very easy. The Government officials have offered to agree upon a case, and furnished every facility for taking it up to the Supreme Court of the United States.
If Brigham is loyal, as he claims, let him concur in this -- test the law, and abide by the result. There is no escaping this issue.
The original design was to station 2, troops for the coming winter, and the supplies for them are already stored, at Camp Douglas, three miles from this city. But, within the last few days, notice has been given to the commandant that only 1, soldiers will winter here, and the Commissary has received orders to sell the surplus supplies. They have cost a million of dollars, and the officers assure me that their sale will involve a loss of from twenty to fifty per cent, upon their cost.
Of course, there are Major Generals and editors who will demonstrate beyond all question, that this withholding of troops when more needed than ever before, and this sacrifice of from a quarter to a half million dollars of Government property, is a fresh proof of the inscrutable wisdom and grand organizing powers of Edwin M. But here is a graver fact. The Governor appoints, and keeps in most important and responsible positions of civil trust and honor, men who openly and systematically violate the laws.
The following officers, appointed by the National Government, are all Polygamists: Stenhouse, Postmaster of Salt Lake City. Little, Assessor of the Internal Revenue for the Territory. Burton, Collector of Internal Revenue for the Territory. Many of their deputies, and a large number of the one hundred postmasters throughout Utah. Some of these officers have only two wives; some have eight.
The present incumbent has held the position for five years, and has taken an additional wife since the act of was passed. So have many of the others.
I know nothing to indicate that the Post-office is not honestly and faithfully conducted; that is not the question. An efficient and experienced agent of the Post-office Department, Mr.
Lawrence, is now looking into its affairs through several of these Territories, and will report at Washington the general condition of postal affairs. Brigham claims for Utah a population of ,; it can not be less than 60, The Territory has been settled eighteen years, and much property accumulated. Yet the Internal Revenue for this year is assessed at less than ,, and, of course, that will be reduced in collecting.
Colorado has much less wealth than Utah. This year, Montana, which has less than 12, people, and has been settled oniy two or three years, pays over , It is alleged that the policy of extreme conciliation, which induced the appointment of Polygamists to these responsible positions, originated with Mr.
I know nothing of the truth of the statement, but all who think the policy wise should study the above figures. Moreover, it causes wholesale perjury. Every one of these officials has taken the oath to support the Constitution and laws of the United States.
If there is any truth in the old maxim of the lawyers, that for every legal wrong there is a legal remedy, this is the place to demonstrate it. The very existence of a constitutional law presupposes some method of enforcing it. For the condition of things here, these three Congressional remedies are suggested among' the Gentiles: Authorizing a change of venue from one territory to another; but this would remove the case further from the vicinage than the Constitution contemplates.
Beside, the venue may be changed to protect the defendant, even to protect the Government. Abrogating the territorial organization of Utah, and dividing her area between Montana, Nevada, Arizona and Colorado.
But the people of this valley are homogeneous in pursuits, interests and character, and the present division of Territories is natural and convenient. Vesting the impanneling of jurors in the Governor and two or four of the other Federal officers. At present, all jurors in a Polygamy case would be Mormons; then they would all be Gentiles.
Each is bitterly hostile to the other. Would such a mode be "jury-trial" in its original and proper sense? Some explain the military preparations on the theory of possible Indian troubles, and the determination of the Saints to watch the savages. Some Gentiles firmly believe that Brigham is determined to provoke real, earnest war with the Government. He could do this without the least difficulty, so far as his people are concerned.
If he so ordered them, they would fight a world in arms, with perfect faith that God would give them victory. But Brigham is quite too sagacious to desire actual war. His power, always so imperious, is becoming a little weakened. Contact with the world has already relaxed, in many instances, the hitherto iron bonds of the Church.
Families persist in taking Gentiles to board, despite all the thunders of the Bowery. In one case, a most reputable lady persists in doing this, though a Mormon preacher, Bishop Woolley, in one of their Sunday meetings, publicly denounced her by name, with the most offensive epithet that can be applied to a woman.
Daughters of the Saints often show a preference for Gentiles, and associate with young men of "the world" notwithstanding expostulations and threats of bishops and elders. Some Morman wives, disgusted at polygamy, leave their husbands, to seek and find the protection of Camp Douglas. And several wealthy men have already apostatized from the church. Moreover, the influence of Gentile literature is irresistible. In the Bowery, a few Sundays ago, Heber complained that his wives and daughters would read the Atlantic Monthly and Harper's Monthly, and hide them from him when he attempted to take them away!
At the Territorial Conference, last Friday, he urged very earnestly that they must all render to Brigham implicit allegiance, and obey unquestionably his every mandate. In short the bonds give signs, few but unmistakable that they are slowly loosening, and that unless something is done, the One-man Power must ultimately succumb.
I think it is chiefly as a remedy for this that Brigham is industriously giving the impression ofpersecution, to produce an outside pressure, and compact his people. He knows, too, the despotism of military machinery, and is perfecting it as another means of holding his followers well in hand. I am fully persuaded that he desires a show of collision; a little bloodshed. If some hot-headed officer of the Government could be irritated into the use of force, and kill half a dozen Mormons, it would strengthen Brigham immeasurably, and do more to enthuse his present followers, and procure new converts, all over the World, than years of patient labor.
The Church would live and thrive for half a century on a little martyrdom like this. After careful observation and reflection, this is, to me, the only plausible theory of Brigham's conduct.
Therefore, the leading Federal officers in Utah need the utmost wisdom and judgment, the rarest blending of moderation and firmness, the most spotless private lives, and thorough knowledge of human nature.
It is absolutely necessary, and yet very difficult, to, make the people understand that the Government has no hostility to. The new Governor, Charles Durkee, of Wisconsin, has just arrived, and assumed the duties of his office. He affords a gratifying contrast to the broken-down politicians, without talents, dignity or character, sometimes sent here in years past. His creditable antecedents, throughout a long public life, give reason to believe that he will fill this most difficult position faithfully and wisely, if properly supported by the Government.
I have written thus at length because the subject is one of grave importance, and ought to be minutely understood. If the condition of things in Utah was thoroughly comprehended by every household in the land, it would produce an overwhelming public sentiment which would force Congress and the administration into new and effective measures.
Indeed it would excite so much indignation that we should be very likely to act with undue harshness and severity, without wise consideration for the sincerity and honest intentions of those misguided masses, and even may of their nominal leaders. Brigham and his associates are living in open, defiant violation of the laws of the United States. They are teaching to their followers intense hostility to our Government and people, and the necessity and duty of resisting by force of arms any attempt to make the law operative.
They are drilling and arming the entire people into a compact and efficient military organization. The Government places and keeps in important Federal offices men who flagrantly violate the law and systematically perjure themselves in taking the oath of office. Not only does the public interest suffer financially, not only are the ends of justice frustrated, but our highest law-making authority has solemnly enacted that polygamy is a crime, and the Government makes itself an accessory to that crime.
Some action by Congress and the President is imperatively demanded. Two courses are open. If Utah is let alone, great natural laws -- travel, commerce, and the influx of a mining population -- will slowly but surely destroy polygamy.
Within five years at furthest, practically the power of the church will be shattered. If we are willing to act upon the great truth that "the world is governed too much" and let the evil correct itself by the inevitable pressure of time, the remedy will prove effectual. But in that event let the law be repealed. It is not seemly or right that it should stand on the statute book, only to be despised and broken. On the contrary, if it is determined to enforce it, the necessary amendments should be made with great caution and deliberation and at the very least 5, troops should be stationed permanently at Camp Douglas.
One course or the other should be adopted. We have had something too much of this. It is time to stop this open, flagrant, contemptuous defiance of the National authority. Brigham Young is said to be about sending Mormon missionaries to Turkey, Syria, and Egypt; a trouble which he need not take, considering that polygamy is far, from being as common in the East as generally supposed.
The great majority of Mohammedans have only one wife, and none but great pashas or nabobs are able to keep extensive harems. These gentlemen, we suppose, are the notabilities of Salt Lake, particularly the last named. Brigham's oldest wife is not over forty-nine, and his youngest not above fourteen, while he is the survivor of no fewer than twenty-eight spouses. Silas Roeder, the next in authority among the Saints, as might be supposed, is so apt to forget the names of his wives that he has to call them by numbers.
The masses in the Mormon country have only one wife, and the average does not exceed two or three apiece. Brigham Young is the reputed father of children, of whom thirty-two are dead. The surviving balance of consists of eighty-five boys and girls. Silas Roeder is thrice and Jeremiah Stern nine times Brigham's brother-in-law, these worthies having respectively married three and nine sisters of their chief's wives.
The preponderating nationality among the male inhabitants is that of Sweden, and the Danes come next. The Scotch, noted for their metaphysical propensities, surviving all the whisky of the land of Burns, outnumber the Norwegians. Next to them are the Swiss, Germans and Americans. As for the French, there are only two in all the vast Mormon domains, and there are not more than three Italians, and only one Spaniard, an isolated representative of Don Quixote, in Salt Lake.
As far as the female population is concerned, it is noteworthy that there is not a single French-woman, while there are eight Italians and two Spanish women, and even one representative of classic Greece. A French lady would be looked upon as the most precious of acquisitions, and other Latin females are also in great demand in proportion to their greater scarcity.
The majority of the women come from the United States, Scandinavia. Switzerland, Germany and Mexico. Not a few of the. The Mormon agents with a keen appreciation of the influence of occupation on the mind, ransack the tailor and cobbler shops of Scandinavia and Scotland with peculiar zest, the singular posture and meditative opportunities of tailors, and to some extent also of cobblers, during the exercise of their craft, being deemed by these agents as especially productive of a susceptibility for visionary reflections.
Silas Roeder "the next in authority among the Saints" was an obvious journalistic fabrication -- as were the other Utah super-polygamists cited in this fanciful report. Cleveland, Tuesday, May 22, Thomas Calvert, of this city, in the employ of the Hannibal and St. Joseph Railway Company, gives us a written report of a visit he made to Mrs.
Smith -- that was on the 23d and 24th of February last. He states that she is married and possessed of large property.
