- The following article appeared in the Tribune last Sunday: “An old Mormon of fifty years’ standing, a resident of Kaysville, got himself into trouble by selling some of his property to a Liberal lately. He was in need of money and got a better price for his property than any Saints would give him, but this being against the wish of the priesthood there, the old man was called up before the congregation and compelled to ask pardon and express sorrow for having sold his inheritance to an ungodly outsider. It would be difficult to difficult to convince William Payne that there is no church and state union in Mormonism, providing, of course, if he dare have or express an opinion on that subject.” In answer to the above we wish to state it is absolutely false. Mr. Payne, since he first settled here many years ago, never sold or offered for sale any piece of his property, nor was he ever taken to task by the ward authorities or compelled to get up before the congregation to ask pardon and express sorrow for any of his business transactions whether it be with an ungodly outsider or otherwise. On Sunday October 24, Mr. Payne asked permission to make an acknowledgment for an offense he had committed in imbibing too freely in liquor. The acknowledgment was made voluntarily and was a surprise to the bishop and a great majority of the people present. This is all the people here know of Mr. Paynes business transactions with “ungodly outsiders.” If the Tribunes informer will tell us where the piece of property is he claims so recently changed hands, and then have Mr. Payne make an affidavit to the effect that he did sell and that he made public confession for doing so, we will believe it; until then we will have to consider it what we think it to be, a base fabrication.
