PIONEERS AND PROMINENT MEN OF UTAH

CAIXE, JOHW T. (son of Thomas Caine and Elinor Cubbon
of the Isle of Man, Parish of Kirk Patrick). Born Jan. 8,
1S29, on the Isle of Man. Came to Utah Sept. 20, 1852,
captain of ten in the James McGaw company of fifty
wagons.

Married Margaret Nightingale Oct. 22, 1850, St. Louis, Mo.
(her grandmother, Mary Leach, was the second woman
baptized into the L. D. S. church in Europe. She lived at
Nauvoo, and later went to St. Louis).

The family record of Mr. and Mrs. Caine shows them to
be the parents of thirteen children, eight of whom are
living, namely, Agrnes Ellen, who is Mrs. Arthur Pratt; John
T., Jr., registrar in the Utah Agricultural College at Logan;
Albion William, a rancher near Missoula, Mont.; Joseph
Edgrar, a former captain of the Utah Volunteer Cavalry in
the Philippines, afterward cashier of the Utah Commercial
and Savings Bank, secretary Salt Lake Commercial Club;
and at this time secretary Oakland (Cal.) Commercial Club;
Julia Dean, Mrs. George D. Alder; Charles Arthur, secre-
tary of the Caine & Hooper Co.; Florence Nightingale, Mrs.
Will G. Farrell; Margaret Nightingale, and Mrs. William
G. Patrick.

He was a school teacher in Utah; missionary to Sandwich
Islands; actor, stage manager and editor at Salt Lake City;
territorial legislator; University regent and city recorder
such is a partial epitome of the pre-delegate record of
this self-made man, rising step by step from the humblest
walks of life to the high and honorable position of United
States Congressman from Utah. As missionary to the
Hawaiian mission, where he presided over the Oahu con-
ference, the climate did not agree with him, and President
Young recalled him. Reaching Utah October, 1856, he was
made secretary of the legislature in session at Fillmore,
which adjourned to Salt Lake City, and was with that body
until its adjournment. He was secretary of a commission
appointed by this legislature to codify the United States
laws applicable to territories. He held the same positions
in the legislatures for many years afterwards. He was also
military secretary (with the rank of lieutenant-colonel) on
the staff of Gen. Daniel Wells, commanding the Nauvoo
Legion, and once a private clerk to President Brigham

Delegated to carry a protest from the people of Utah to
Washington, D. C., against the Cullom bill, then pending In
Congress, he created much favorable comment. Manager of
Salt Lake Herald, established 1872, and third owner; mem-
ber constitutional convention of 1882; elected to congress
that year, taking his seat March, 1883; presided over the
constitutional conventional of 1887, and strongly urged the
adoption of a clause in the proposed constitution prohibiting
polygamy, believing this to be the true solution of the
"Mormon" problem, and the only course that would satisfy
the government of the United States.

He presented the constitution and Its accompanying
documents to Congress, and on Feb. 18, 1888, before the
Senate committee on territories, made a strong argument in
support of the honesty and sincerity of the people of l
in proposing this solution of the vexing question. During
the same year, on the 25th of August and the 4th of Octo-
ber, he delivered in the House his noted speeches, "Poly-
gamy in Utah a Dead Issue," and "Mormon Facts Versus
Anti-Mormon Fictions." In the beginning of 1889 he made
an able and forcible argument before the House committee
on territories in favor of Utah's admission as a State. All
the while, in and out of Congress, he was stemming a per-
fect torrent of anti-Utah measures, one of which, by Senator
Paddock of Nebraska, an ex-member of the Utah Commis-
sion, proposed the redlstricting and reapportionment of Salt
Lake City by the governor, secretary and members of that
commission, in such a way as to give the "Liberals" control
of the city government. Senator Cullom, of Illinois, and
Delegate Dubois, of Idaho, presented legislative commission
bills Mr. Caine's plea to senators and members was that
they should wait and see If the Edmunds-Tucker law would
not accomplish all that was desired In the settlement of
the "Mormon" question. He introduced a bill for an en-
abling act for Utah, and set on foot the movement that
resulted In the appointment of a fourth federal judge for
Utah A pleasant episode in the midst of these stormy
experiences was his attendance, as Utah's representative,
in New York City, April 29, 30, and May 1, 1889, at the
great celebration in honor of the centennial anniversary
of the inauguration of George Washington as president of

The opening of the Fifty-first Congress found him at
his post, fighting the infamous measures known as the
Cullom and Struble bills, which proposed to disfranchise
all members of the L. D. S church who were American
citizens, and prevent the naturalization of Mormon aliens.
On April 23, 1890, Mr. Caine, before the House committee
on territories, delivered a masterful and convincing argu-
ment against the Struble bill, which, though favorably re-
ported, prevented it from coming before the House for
action. Our delegate and his congressional friends also
blocked the way of the new Edmunds bill, proposing to
devote the funds escheated from the Mormon church to the
public schools of Utah. Upon the passage of the bill for
the admission of Idaho, he made a speech favoring state-
hood for that Territory; but opposing- those provisions of
the enabling act which disfranchised for their church mem-
bership, all Mormons citizens residing there.

But It was not alone in antagonizing measures Inimical
to his Mormon constituents, that our delegate's zeal and
efficiency were shown. He fought repeatedly and success-
fully the proposed removal of the Southern Ute Indians
from Colorado to Utah, and secured measures for the relief
of the inhabitants of Ferron, Richfield, and Morgan, en-



abling them to increase the area of their townsite entries
by filing upon school lands within their corporate limits.
He obtained appropriations for the construction and com-
pletion of the Utah penitentiary, and for the benefit of the
Shebit Indians in Washington county. He presented bills
for the erection of government buildings at Salt Lake City
and Ogden, for the creation of a land office at Ogden, and
for the granting of a tract of sixty acres for a University
site on the Fort Douglas military reservation. He also
secured, during the anti-polygamy crusade, presidential
clemency and full pardons for many old and feeble men
who were undergoing Imprisonment in the prisons of Utah
and other places.

In these and all other matters requiring executive action
Mr. Caine speaks in warm terms of the magnanimity and
high sense of justice manifested by President Cleveland.
With the president, the heads of departments, and the
attaches of several government offices, he maintained the
most cordial relations. Uniformly dignified and courteous,
he enjoyed the confidence and respect of his associates in
Congress, made no enemies, and had many warm friends.
During the whole of his experience as delegate he served
as a member of the National Democratic Campaign com-
mittee, representing Utah, and took an active part In all
its deliberations for the advancement of Democratic Inter-
ests in the several congressional districts. The influence
thus gained was ever at the command of his constituents,
and no citizen of Utah, nor even of Idaho or Arizona, Mor-
mon or not, ever appealed to him In vain for assistance,
when to give such assistance was proper and possible.

To recount the full story of his combats, victories and
defeats in the Forty-eighth, Forty-ninth, Fiftieth and
Fifty-second Congresses, to each of which he was elected
by an overwhelming majority (his plurality at the last elec-
tion being nearly ten thousand), would require much space.
It might almost be said that a battle royal was waged from
start to finish throughout his eleven years of service, the
final victory coming to Mr. Caine and the people for whom
he faithfully fought. In the practically unanimous consent
of all parties to admit Utah into the Union. On Jan. 7,
1892, he introduced in the House the Utah Home Rule bill,
duplicated by Mr. Faulkner in the Senate, and in February
considered by the Senate and House committees on ter-
ritories. Delegations from Utah, introduced by Mr. Caine,
spoke for and against the measure: H. W. Smith, C. C.
Richards, J. W. Judd, F. S. Richards, T. J. Anderson, J. L.
Rawlins, F. H. Dyer, and ex-Governor West, in favor of It,
and O. W. Powers, C. E. Allen, C. W. Bennett and John
Henry Smith in opposition. The latter two argued in favor
of statehood rather than against home rule. Before the
Senate committee, Delegate Caine read the Mormon petition
for amnesty, dated Dec. 19, 1891, and signed by the First
Presidency and Twelve Apostles, thus securing Its publi-
cation as a part of the proceedings. He worked zealously
for the Home Rule bill, and on July 8, 1892, saw It pass the
House, thus clearing the way for Statehood.

Upon the dissolution of the "People's" and "Liberal"
parties, Mr. Caine, who had always been a Democrat in
spirit, became identified with and one of the leaders of the
Democratic party of Utah. In June, 1892, he attended as a
delegate the National Democratic convention at Chicago
which nominated Grover Cleveland for his second term
as president. There was a contesting delegation, headed by
Judge Powers, representing the "Tuscarora Society," mostly
Democratic members of the fast dying "Liberal" party. Mr.
Caine's acquaintance and influence with public men, mem-
bers of the convention, was largely Instrumental in seating
the regular delegates Judge Henry P. Henderson and him-
self. As a member of the committee on platform and resolu-
tions, he secured a clause in the platform favoring state-
hood for all the Territories having the requisite qualifica-
tions. Back again in Congress, Jan. 14, 1893, he introduced
in the House, a bill for an enabling act to admit Utah Into
the Union, and a similar bill at his request was introduced
by Mr. Faulkner in the Senate. It failed of passage owing
to the flood of business at the close of that session, and the
change of administration, but practically identical with it
was the bill that became a law in the next Congress.

With statehood in sight the public boom for which he
had toiled so long and faithfully Delegate Caine was the
logical candidate for re-election 1892, but it being sug-
gested to him by personal friends among his fellow parti-
sans, after the organization of the Democratic party of
Utah, that in order to show the country that the dissolu-
tion of the "People's" party was an honest reality, it would
be advisable to nominate a non-Mormon for delegate, he
willingly sacrificed his own political interests, and heartily
joined in the nomination and zealously worked for the elec-
tion of Hon. Joseph L. Rawlins. The next year Utah went
Republican, that party electing a majority of the members
of the legislature. Fearing the effect upon Congress, which
was strongly Democratic, and was then considering the
Utah Statehood bill, which passed the House in December
of that year, Mr. Caine was prevailed upon by prominent
Utah Democrats, in January, 1894, to take a trip to Wash-
ington and consult with Democratic leaders in Congress
over the Utah situation. The result was all that could be
desired. While those leaders were disappointed at the out-
come of the election, they declared that the Territory had
all the qualifications for Statehood, and was entitled to
admission Into the Union. The enabling- act passed the
Senate In July, 1894, and on the 16th of that month was ap-
proved by President Cleveland.

As Chairman of the Democratic territorial committee, Mr.
Caine, In the fall of the same year, waged an energetic
campaign, many Democrats being elected to the constltu-

tional convention, which, however, had a Republican ma-
jority; that party also elected the delegate to Congress,
Hon. Frank J. Cannon. In August, 1895, Mr. Caine again
went east In the interest of his party. At the Democratic
convention for the nomination of State officers, held at
Ogden, in anticipation of Statehood, on the 5th of Septem-
ber, he was almost unanimously nominated for Governor,
but in the election, after a thorough canvass of the Terri-
tory with Hon. B. H. Roberts, he shared the fate of his
party, receiving 18,519 votes as against 20,833 cast for the
successful Republican candidate, Hon. Heber M. Wells.
In 1896 he was nominated for the State Senate and elected,
receiving a majority of 3,820 votes over any senatorial
candidate on the opposition ticket. He served but one ses-
sion in the Senate, having drawn the short, or one-year
term.

In the interim of retiring from Congress in March, 1893,
and the advent of statehood in 1896, Mr. Caine was Auditor
of Public Accounts for the Territory. He was afterwards
superintendent of waterworks for Salt Lake City. In busi-
ness life he has also figured prominently. He was one of
the original stockholders and directors of Zion's Savings
Bank and Trust Company, and is a director, secretary and
treasurer of the Josepa Agricultural and Stock Company,
promoting the settlement of native Hawaiians on a large
ranch in Skull Valley.
