ong a society of Anglo-Saxons they have introduced some of the ideas, many of the practices of Utes, Shoshones, or Snakes. A wider view of Indian life confirms my first belief that some of the ideas and many of the practices, found among the Mormons living at Salt Lake city, are a growth of the soil, older than the advent of Brigham Young, older than the revela tion of Joseph Smith. Apart from the devotional spirit, the sense of order, and the love of work, which are the virtues of New England and of Old England, never yet divorced from men of Anglo-Saxon breed, the Mormons seem to have derived their chief ideas, and adopted their chief practices from the Indian lodge. Glance, for a moment, at the main ideas on which Red men differ from White — from all White men except Latter-day Saints. 1. Red men have a physical god, who can be seen and heard, not only in the cloud and wind, but with the form and voice of man. 2. They have a class of seers and chiefs, endowed with a s

Sioux, you hear the same talk of divine help, and of standing face to face with God, as you hear in the Lion House and Tabernacle at Salt Lake. I will consult the Great Spirit, says Red Cloud, when the Indian Commissioners press a point. In speaking to the Whites, Red Cloud never drops this tone of priest and seer. Whatever the Great Spirit tells me to do, that I will do. Red Cloud can hardly count the lodges of his tribe. Six years ago he owned the plains and mountains from the Upper Missouri River to the Setting Sun. White men came into his huntinggrounds; trappers, dealers, herdsmen, whom he received with kindness and supplied with squaws. Red Cloud was glad to see men come into his country who could show his young hunters how to work! But he reserved his princely rights. When White men came to make a road, they wanted soldiers to protect their plant; but Red Cloud would not have these armed hands about his lodges. No, he answered the Commissioner, in the tone of a prop

oning his hunting-grounds, he rose and spoke: I am Red Cloud. The Great Spirit made the Red man and the White. I think he made the Red man first. He raised me in this land, and it is mine. He raised the White men beyond the sea; their land is over there. Since they crossed the sea, I have given them room, and there are pale faces all about me. I have but a small spot of land left. The Great Spirit tells me to keep it. Brigham Young might use these words. The Lord has given Salt Lake Valley to Brigham and the Saints, just as the Great Spirit has given Nebraska to Red Cloud and the Sioux. The Lord has told Brigham to keep that valley, and Brigham will hold it so long as the Lord gives him strength to keep the Gentiles out. Whatever I do, says Red Cloud, in the tone so often heard at Salt Lake City, my people will do the same. Whether asking or refusing, Red Cloud is but carrying out the wishes of his people and the will of God. Brigham Young has done something to app

Chapter 19: Red Mormonism. From Winnemucca, an Indian camp in Nevada, to Brigham, a prosperous Mormon town in Salt Lake Valley, we race and wriggle through a mountain district, not more striking in physical aspect than in human interest. Rolling on the level of Ben Nevis, with a score of snowy peaks in front and flank, we climb through woods of stunted pine, ascending by the Pallisades to Pequop, at the height of Mont d'or, from which we slide by way of Humboldt Wells and the Americannders, Delegate George Q. Cannon, and Professor Orson Pratt.

Chapter 19: Red Mormonism. From Winnemucca, an Indian camp in Nevada, to Brigham, a prosperous Mormon town in Salt Lake Valley, we race and wriggle through a mountain district, not more striking in physical aspect than in human interest. Rolling on the level of Ben Nevis, with a score of snowy peaks in front and flank, we climb through woods of stunted pine, ascending by the Pallisades to Pequop, at the height of Mont d'or, from which we slide by way of Humboldt Wells and the American Desert direct to Brigham in the land of Zion. Ten years ago, this line of country, four hundred miles by road, belonged to independent tribes of Utes and Shoshones, whose pagan ancestors had hunted buffalo, made peace and war, and carried on vendetta, from the frozen sierras to the neighbourhood of Snake River and Shoshone Falls. To-day these tribes have not a single acre of their ancient hunting grounds. Many of these Indians are Red Mormons. Every Indian tribe, among whose tents the Mor

d to the tribe as his children, and the titles vest in the big chief as trustee of the Great Spirit and his tribe. No private member of the tribe has any power to hold and own the land, and what is on the land. 7. An injury to any member of the nation is regarded by the Red man an injury to all, so that this wrong must be atoned before the tribe can rest — a blood atonement being required of the offending tribe. All these ideas, strange to White men, hardly known in London and Berlin, Paris and New York, have been adopted by the Saints, not only by Brigham Young and Daniel Wells, illiterate presidents of the Church, but by their learned bishops, compeers, and defenders, Delegate George Q. Cannon, and Professor Orson Pratt. In the camp of Red Cloud, a chief of the Teton Sioux, you hear the same talk of divine help, and of standing face to face with God, as you hear in the Lion House and Tabernacle at Salt Lake.

o-day these tribes have not a single acre of their ancient hunting grounds. Many of these Indians are Red Mormons. Every Indian tribe, among whose tents the Mormon preachers have come, are more or less inclined to favour them, but many of these Utes and Shoshones have been actually baptized into the Mormon Church. Red bishops have been consecrated for the government of these mountain tribes. Nine years ago, while staying in Salt Lake City, studying the system introduced among men of European stock by Joseph Smith and Brigham Young, I wrote these words: What have ,these saints achieved? In the midst of a free people, they have founded a despotic power. In a land which repudiates State religions, they have placed their Church above human laws. Among a society of Anglo-Saxons they have introduced some of the ideas, many of the practices of Utes, Shoshones, or Snakes.

to the camp; you shoot a score of squaws and papooses; then you see the braves and warriors come to their defence. They are not far away. A volley was discharged into the Indian camp. A wild and piercing yell rose up from wounded squaws and children. Soon the paint and feathers showed themselves among stones and trees. Each Indian rushed to the defence of his own lodge, and now the Whites poured in among them, and the hug of hate began. Arms, drill, and science fought for the Whites, and when the firing slackened, a rush was made with knife and bayonet. The camp was carried, and every man, woman, and child still left was sought and killed. On crossing Bear River, we arrive at Brigham, a city of adobe houses, nestling in the midst of fruit trees. Here we find a body of Red Mormons, led by a Red bishop, on their road to Zion. Finding no comfort in their Gentile neighbours, the Horse Indians are turning more and more towards their pale-faced brethren of the Mormon church.
