William Hepworth Dixon, White Conquest: Volume 1, Chapter 20: White Indians. (search)
ied to introduce these principles of the sacred race, as well as to diffuse a knowledge of their personal god, their government by seers, their cure of maladies by spells and charms. He failed on the domestic side. Even in his house, a Gentile feeling burned against the introduction of second wives; and sisters who pretend to have been the sealed spouses of Joseph, own that they had to undergo the rite in secret, and accept their wifehood in a mystic sense. But when the saints arrived in Utah, where, surrounded by the Indian wigwams, they were free to carry out their principles, they proclaimed the Indian doctrine of plurality of wives. Were they not gathered into Zion? Were not the sons of Laman living in the Valley, each with his two or three squaws, according to the ancient and celestial rule? That day, I wrote in New America, the Red men and the White men made with each other an unwritten covenant, for the Shoshone had at length found a brother in the Pale-face, and th

Salt Lake Valley, as in Los Angeles, San Jose, and other places, the Red aberrations of White people are in process of correction. White polygamy is perishing in Utah, like Red polygamy, of which it is a bastard offspring, not by force or violence, but by the operation of natural laws. It dies of contact with the higher fashionevery thousand persons, five hundred and five are males, four hundred and ninety-five females. There are not enough women for every man to have one wife. Even in Utah you have fifteen hundred more men than women. In the face of such facts, your celestial law of polygamy will be hard to carry out. Man will find his mate, or die band, I hope she will now rest. Is not your daughter Clara living with Joseph Young? Yes, Yes, says Mrs. Stenhouse, sadly, she is with him, in the South of Utah, living in polygamy. We cannot get the child to see her way. Her husband dotes on her. If he were only a bad man, there would be some hope for us. He might abuse
William Hepworth Dixon, White Conquest: Volume 1, Chapter 22: Indian seers. (search)
Chapter 22: Indian seers. Red Cloud is an example, and no more than an example, of a Red Brigham Young. At Green River, in the territory of Utah, we find the details of a recent drama, every scene in which would be a parody on the Mormon pope, if Brigham Young were not himself a parody on these Indian seers. In March last year an Indian prophet came into a camp of wandering Utes near Tierra Amarilla, in New Mexico, bringing a message to this tribe of Utes from their Great Spirit. The the Apaches, and after starving for five or six weeks, and losing nearly all their cows and ponies, they returned to Tierra Amarilla in an abject plight and spirit. Armstrong resolved to separate the bands, and send them, not to Green River in Utah, but to the Ute reservations in Colorado. On giving his promise not to plunder any more, Sabeta was allowed to leave for Los Pinos; on a similar pledge, Cornea was allowed to leave for Pagota Springs. In future these Ute bands would have to dwel

ard was the Church. Brigham Young, living nearer to the sacred race than Smith, and having Lamanite examples always in his sight, pushes this pretension of his Master home; insisting that a Saint of perfect faith shall place the whole of his earthly goods in trust; and here and there, some ardent follower listens to counsel, gives up his all on earth, and takes from Young a promise of the highest seat among the gods in heaven. To quicken zeal in sacrifice, a new Order has been created in Utah, called the Order of Enoch, and the men who consecrate their property to God, are made members of this Order-Sons of Enoch, and like Enoch, Heirs of Life. It is a form of aristocracy; a grade in a new order of nobles. Not many persons have yet earned this grade. A convert now and then lays down his all, and wins from his prophet the promise of a seat among the highest thrones; but a Saint grown grey in sanctity is rarely tempted to exchange his fields and barns, his cows and pigs, his whee
