There have been in the world hundreds of political
parties. They did their work. They lost their pres-
tige. They expired. Their names are forgotten.
Enough for me to declare what I believe God and
civilization demand of the two political parties of this
day, or their extermination. God and civilization de-
mand of the political parties of this day a plank anti-
Mormonistic. It is high time that the nation stopped
playing with this cancer.

THE DEMAND OF GOD AND CIVILIZATION.BY T. DE WITT TALMAGE There have been in the world hundreds of political parties. They did their work. They lost their pres-tige. They expired. Their names are forgotten. Enough for me to declare what I believe God and civilization demand of the two political parties of this day, or their extermination. God and civilization de-mand of the political parties of this day a plank anti-Mormonistic. It is high time that the nation stopped playing with this cancer. All the plasters of political quacks only aggravate it, and nothing but the sur-gery of the sword will cure it. All the congressional laws on this subject have been notorious failures. Meanwhile the great monster sits between the two mountains the Rocky Mountains and the Sierra Ne-vadas sits in defiance and mockery, sometimes hold-ing its sides with uncontrollable mirth at our national impotency. Shipload after shipload of Mormons are regurgitated at your Castle Garden, and hundreds and thousands of them are being sent on to the great moral lazaretto of the West. Others are on the way, and the Atlantic is heaving toward us the great surges of foreign libertinism. This moment the emissaries of that organized lust are busy in Norway and Sweden

and England and Ireland and Scotland and Germany, breaking up homes, and with infernal cords draw-ing the population this way, a population which 613 614 THE DEMAND OF (JOD AND CIVILIZATION. will be dumped as carrion on the American terri-tories. American crime, with its long rake stretched across other continents, is heaping up on this land great winrows of abomination. Worse and worse. Four hundred Mormons coming into our port in one day, six hundred in another day, eight hundred in another day. Are we so cowardly and selfish in this generation that we are going to bequeath to the following gen-erations this great evil? Letting it go on until our chil-dren come to the front and we are safely entrenched under the mound of our own sepulchres, leaving our children through all their active life to wonder why we postponed this evil for their extirpation when we might have destroyed it with a hundred-fold less ex-

posure. What a legacy for this generation to leave the following generation ! A vast acreage of swelter-ing putrefaction, of lowest beastliness, of suffocating stench, all the time becoming more and more mal-odo-rous and rotten and damnable. We want some great political party in some strong and unmistakable plank to declare that it will extirpate heroically and imme-diately this great harem of the American continent. We want some President of the United States to come in on such an anti-Mbrmonistic platform, and in his opening message to Congress ask for an appropri-ation for military expedition, and then put Phil Sheri-dan in his lightning stirrups, heading his horse west-ward, and in one year Mormonism will be extirpated and national decency vindicated. Compelling Mor-monistic chiefs to take oath of allegiance will not do it, for they have declared in open assembly that per- jury in their cause is commendable. Religious tracts on purity amount to nothing. They will not read THE DEMAND OF GOD AND CIVILIZATION. 615 them. Anything shorter than bayonets and any-thing softer than bullets will never do that work.
