The Trouble with Brigham
SALT LAKE, October 4.—Everything is quiet. There is no excitement and none anticipated. Brigham Young remains at his residence without a personal guard. He is better to-day and says he will certainly be able to appear before the court in a few days. He repeats his entire sub-mission to the laws, so far as arrests and trial go, but to the question as to what he would do in case of conviction. He has no answer. The return of Gen. Morrow has had an excellent effect in assuring the Committee of Peace and Good Order. Brigham is confident that he cannot be convicted on any charge. The News, church or-gan, edited by G. Q. Cannon, is bitter and threat-ening. It says it would be a good thing for names of all those who are attempting to harass the peo-ple and eat out their substance to be taken and held in remembrance for future use. Some one will have to pay the costs of these unrighteous proceedings, with interest, too. A day of reckon-ing will come, and if at that day the authors of these proceedings shall be gone to their own place, their children, where they have any, can be called on to pay the debt, even though they have to sell themselves body and soul to do it. They can't escape ultimate retribution. The influence of the News, however, regarded it of little moment now among the enlightened classes of Mormons or people.
