Lord are found, has intoxicating liquors for sale. President Joseph F. Smith, of the Utah Mormon Church, is also presi- dent of this Z.C.M.I., and made the fol- lowing excuse for having intoxicating drinks or liquors for sale there Have I made myself a sot because liquor was kept for sale by Z.O.M.I. ? I am not the worse for it, thank the Lord. And who else is? No one, except the pious Mor- mons (?) who in open day or under the cover of night would go into the drug- stores and buy liquor to drink. If he could not get it there, he would not patronise Z.C'.M.I. at all, but would go somewhere else to deal (from sermoneof Joseph F. Smith in Salt Lake Taber- nacle, April 6th, 1898; Official Report of Conference, p. 11; Herald, vol. 56, p. 305). Moreover, President Joseph Fielding Smith delivered a lecture not very long ago in favour of prohibition, and Senator Reed Smoot, who is also an Apostle of the Mormon Church, remarked in another speech delivered immediately. after Presi- dent J. F. Smith, that every word that President Smith said sounded good to me, way down in my soul." Yet Senator Reed Smoot iSI the principal stockholder in the Smoot Drug Store, at Provo, Utah, before which (store) there was a sign, reading: Family wines and liquors for sale." And just before Christmas the following notice was published in the "Enquirer":—"Wines and liquors for Christmas; Smoot Drug Company". (Herald, v. 56, p. 305). These men can lecture in favour of temperance and testify how good the words against in- toxicating liquor sound way down in their souls," and at the same time sell the "cursed stuff." Consistent Mormons! In view of these facts, we" believe Brigham Young knew what he was about when he said that they had the greatest and smoothest liars in the world.—Yours for truth, REES JENKINS.
