- PEOPLE’S PARTY MEETING.
- A large and enthusiastic audience assembled at People’s Party club meeting on Thursday evening at 7:30. The programme was opened with glee by Cottrell’s Glee club. President Linford then introduced Hon. Chas. W. Penrose of Salt Lake, who delivered an interesting speech lasting about an hour, in which he said that if ever there was a misnomer it was the name given the so-called Liberal party in this territory, because their greatest desire is to take the liberty of the People’s party from them. He hoped to see the day when our motto “Liberty to every nation, tongue and creed,” would be recognized; when every human being, black or white, male and female, would be free to cast his ballot for the man that he wished to represent him. Our delegate John T. Caine is a man who will use his influence for the good of the territory and its people. Opposed to him the Liberals have nominated a man who has openly declared that a Mormon should not have the right to vote, hold office, nor even enter land under the laws of the United States. This is the kind of a man who now asks the suffrage of the people of Utah, in order to send him to Congress to represent, or rather misrepresent, them. Referring to the pamphlet recently issued by the Liberal party, purporting to be the record of John T Caine in Congress, the speaker said: “In turning over the leaves of the book you see nothing but white, spotless paper. I accept it. Such has been the record of John T. Caine in Congress — spotless and without a blemish.”
At the close of his speech there was prolonged applause. When order was again restored, Mrs Sarah Taylor sang a song entitled “Ship Ahoy.” After giving three rousing cheers for John T. Caine, the meeting adjourned till next Thursday evening, when it is expected that Mr. B. H. Roberts will be with us. M. KAYSVILLE. Oct. 25.
