commerce expanded and a thousand and one improvements
were planned and explained. Telegraphs and railroads
threw a net-work of steel and electricity over a region
formerly traversed by the slow-going oxteam and lumber-
ing stage coach. The mines, previously opened, were
developed, property of all kinds increased in value, and in-
dustry on every hand felt the thrill of an electric reawaken-
ing. Tourists from East and West began flocking to the
Mormon country, to see for themselves the "peculiar peo-
ple" and their institutions, trusting no more to the wild
tales told by sensational traducers.

In the midst of it all, Brigham Young remained the
master mind and leading spirit of the time. He had pre-
dicted the transcontinental railroad and marked out its
path while crossing the plains and mountains in 1847, and
now, when it was extending across Utah, he became a con-
tractor, helping to build the Union Pacific grade through
Echo and Weber canyons. Two and a half years earlier
he had established the Deseret Telegraph line, a local enter-
prise constructed entirely by Mormon capital and labor
under his direction. In the early "seventies" he with others
built the Utah Central and Utah Southern railroads, the
pioneer lines of the Territory, and of the first-named road
he was for many years the president.

But while in sympathy with such enterprises and anxious
to forward them, he was not to be caught napping by the
changes that he knew would follow. Just before the com-
ing of the railroad he organized Zion's Co-operative Mer-
cantile Institution, a mammoth concern designed to con-
solidate the commercial interests of his people. In this
and in other ways he sucessfully met the vigorous and in
many respects unfriendly competition that surged in from
outside.

With the Increase of the Gentile population came the for-
mation of rival political parties, the first that Utah had
known. Non-Mormon churches and newspapers also mul-
tiplied, religious and political agitators made the air sul-
phurous with their imprecations against "the dominant
power," and Congress at regular intervals was asked to
exterminate the remaining "twin relic of barbarism." Still,
Mormonism, personified in Brigham Young, continued to
hold its own.

Under the anti-polygamy statute enacted by Congress
in July, 1862, but one attempt was made to prosecute the
Mormon leader. This was in March, 1863, when a plot was
said to be forming to arrest him by military force and
run him off to the States for trial. He forestalled the suc-
cess of the scheme if such a scheme existed by surrender-
Ing to the United States Marshal and going before Chief
Justice Kiriney In chambers, where he was examined and
held to bail, but subsequently discharged, there not being
sufficient evidence to justify an indictment. The charge
in this case was that of marrying a plural wife, the only
act made punishable by the law of 1862, which was silent
as to the maintenance of polygamous relations. Thence-
forth that law remained a dead letter, no attempt being
made to enforce It, the Mormons regarding it as uncon-
stitutional, as it trenched upon a principle of their religion,
and many non-Mormons, including noted editors, jurists
and statesmen, sharing the same view. In 1874 a test-case
was instituted, under President Young's sanction, to secure
a decision from the Supreme Court of the United States,
but that decision, sustaining the law's constitutionality,
was not rendered until eighteen months after his death.



But while measurably safe from prosecution under the
anti-polygamy act, the Mormon leader and his compeers
were not free from judicial harassments. In the fall of
1871 President Young and others were prosecuted before
Chief Justice McKean under a local law enacted by the
Mormons themselves against the social evil, adultery and
other sexual sins, and never intended to apply to polygamy
or association with plural wives, which was the head and
front of their offending. These prosecutions, with others,
were stopped by the Englebrecht decision of April, 1872,
in which the court of last resort held that the grand
jury which had found the indictments was illegal.

A few years later Judge McKean had the Mormon leader
again in the tolls. Under his fostering care had arisen the
case of Ann Eliza Young vs. Brigham Young, in which the
plaintiff, one of the defendant's plural wives, sued him for
divorce and alimony. The judge in his zeal went so far as
to give Ann Eliza the status of a legal wife, deciding against
all law and logic that the defendant should pay her ali-
mony pendente lite, to the amount of nearly ten thousand
dollars. Failing to promptly comply with this demand
which set the whole country In a roar the venerable
founder of Utah was Imprisoned by order of court in the
Utah penitentiary. Sentence was passed upon him March
11, 1875 the term of imprisonment being twenty-four
hours and just one week later the storm of censure re-
sulting from this act culminated in McKean's removal from
office.

In the autumn of the same year President Grant visited
Utah, the first executive of the nation to set foot within
the Territory. The most interesting incident of his visit
was a cordial interview between him and President Young,
who with a party welcomed the chief magistrate at Ogden
and rode in the same train with him and his suite to Salt
Lake City. This was the first and only time that Brigham
Young met a president of the United States.

The closing labors of President Young's life, following a
vigorous and partly successful effort to re-establish the
"United Order" (a communal system introduced by the
Prophet Joseph Smith), comprised the dedication in Jan-
uary and April, 1877, of the St. George Temple the first
Temple erected by the Saints since leaving Nauvoo; also a
reorganization of the Stakes of Zion, beginning with St.
George Stake on April 7th, and ending with Box Elder
Stake on August 19th of that year. To effect the latter
organization, he made his final trip beyond the limits of
Salt Lake City.

President Young died at his residence, the historic Lion
House, August 29, 1877. He left an estate valued at two
and a half million dollars, most of which was divided
among the members of his family. These were numerous,
but their number, for sensational effect, has been grossly
exaggerated. His children at his death numbered about
forty. Six of his widows survive. The majority of his
families dwelt in the Lion and Bee-hive houses, where each
wife with her children had separate apartments, and where,
contrary to facetious reports, all dwelt together in amity.
The Gardo House, a handsome and stately modern man-
sion, surnamed by non-Mormons the "Amelia Palace," and
pointed out to tourists as the "home of the favorite wife"
was in reality the president's official residence, erected
mainly for the entertainment of distinguished visitors.

The best known of President Young's sons are Brigham
Young, president of the Twelve Apostles; Hon. Joseph A.
Young, deceased; John W. Young, once a member of the
first presidency, now a noted business man, and Colonel
Willard Young, of the United States Army, who commanded
a regiment of volunteer engineers during the war with
Spain. Among the president's grandsons are Laurence H.
Young, well known as a business man. Major Richard
W. Young (like his Uncle Willard a graduate of West
Point) who recently won laurels in the Philippines. He
commanded the Utah Light artillery at the capture of
Manila, and was subsequently one of the judges of the
supreme court at that place. Another grandson, Brigham
S. Young, is a member of the Salt Lake Board of Education;
another is John Willard Clawson, the painter; and still
another, George W. Thatcher, Jr., musician. Elder Sey-
mour B. Young, of the First Council of Seventy; Judge
LeGrange Young; Brigham Blcknell Young, vocalist; Dr.
Harry A. Young, killed in the Philippines, and Private
Joseph Young, who died in the same cause, are among the
president's nephews. Corporal John Young, slain in battle
near Manila, was his grand-nephew. Two of President
Young's daughters have been mentioned. In addition might
be named Mrs. Luna Thatcher, Mrs. Emily Clawson, Mrs.
Caroline Cannon, Mrs. Zina Card, Mrs. Maria Dougall; Mrs.
Phebe Beatie, Mrs. Dora Hagan, Mrs. Eva Davis, Mrs.
Nettle Easton, Mrs. Louisa Ferguson, Mrs. Susa Gates, Mrs.
Mira Rossiter, Mrs. Clarissa Spencer, Mrs. Miriam Hardy,
Mrs. Josephine Young, Mrs. Fannie Clayton and others.
The most noted grand-daughter Is Emma Lucy Gates, the
singer.

Brigham Young, like Joseph Smith, was a warm friend of
education. Among the monuments left to perpetuate his
memory are two noble institutions of learning, namely the
Brigham Young academy and the Brigham Young college,
the former at Provo, 50 miles south, and the latter at Logan,
100 miles north of Utah's capital. He also projected the
Young university at Salt Lake City, but died before per-
fecting his plans concerning it. Believing that man, in
order to be fully educated, must be developed mentally,
physically, morally and spiritually, he provided that reli-
gion and manual training should be included in the cur-
riculum of the institutions he founded. In the trust deed en-

dowing the Brigham Young college with 10,000 acres of
land (worth now about $200,000) it was prescribed that no
text book should be used which misrepresented or spoke
lightly of "the divine mission of our Savior or of trie
Prophet Joseph Smith." The founding of these institu-
tions was not the sum of President Young's labors in the
cause of education. The entire school system of the state,
crowned with the University of Utah, is largely the result
of his zealous efforts in this direction.

Among the president's many talents was a genius for
architecture, some of the evidences of which are the St.
George, Logan, Manti and Salt Lake temples, and the Salt
Lake tabernacle. As early as 1862 he built the Salt Lake
theatre, at the time of its erection the finest temple of the
drama between St. Louis and San Francisco. The Brigham
Young memorial building, one of a group of structures
belonging to the Latter-day Saints university, founded by
the church at Salt Lake City, was erected with means
raised from the sale of lands whereon he proposed plac-
ing the Young university; said lands being donated by his
surviving heirs for that purpose.

A mere sketch, this, of the life and character of Utah's
Illustrious founder. You who would peruse him more
fully, pore over the annals of Mormonism during its first half
century; you who would witness his works, look around
you they are manifest on every hand. He was not only
a Moses, who led his people into a wilderness, but a Joshua
who established them in a promised land and divided to
them their inheritance. He was the beatitude heart, the
thinking brain, the directing hand in all the wondrous
work of Utah's development, and to a great extent the
development of the surrounding states and territories, trans-
formed by the touch of industry from a desert of sage-
brush and sand, into an Eden of fertility, a veritable
"Garden of the Lord," redolent of fruits and blossoming
with flowers. Brigham Young needs no monument of marble
or bronze. His record is imperishably written upon the
minds and hearts of many tens of thousands to whom
he was a benefactor and friend. His name and fame are
forever enshrined in the temple of history, in the Pantheon
of memory, in the Westminster Abbey of the soul.

"In regard to the Mountain Meadow Massacre, Brigham
Young testified that he knew nothing of it until some
time after it occurred, and then only by a floating rumor.
The first official report was from John D. Lee, two or three
months after it occurred."

"He personally donated $1,000 for the relief of the people
left destitute by the fire in Chicago in 1871. And with
donations from the Salt Lake City corporation, the receipts
tendered by the management of the Salt Lake theatre, and
personal donations, the amount aggregated about $20,000."

"At the annual conference of the church in April, 1873,
he resigned the office of trustee-in-trust, which he had
held for about 25 years, and George A. Smith was chosen
to succeed him. At this conference he chose five additional
counselors to aid him in the presidency of the church. They
were: Lorenzo Snow, Brigham Young, Jr., Albert Carring-
ton, John W. Young and George Q. Cannon."

"His last public address was Sunday afternoon, Aug. 19,
1877, at Brigham City. The occasion was the organization
of Box Elder stake."

Died Aug. 29, 1877, at Salt Lake City.
