This is true indeed. As apostle Cannon and others have always told us, all opposition to the policies of the priesthood invariably springs from a corrupt heart-crime is always lurking in the soul of the man who cannot see the wisdom of all the measures of the leaders of the Church. History proves this. For instancez—When our inspired Apostles counselled the pour doomed hand-cart companies into death and destruction. When the poor Southern Saints were divinely these wonderful performances of the head of the Church! How blind do “the wicked” always become! And so, Bro. David, it has always been with THE SUFFERING KINGDOM. New Mexicois about to be admitted into the sisterhood of States while the Kingdom of God begs vainly for the same privilege. We have given Congress ten times the amount of trouble that any other Territory ever did, we have heaped more abuse upon the ungodly politicians who sit in Congress than all the rest of the United States together, we looked with pleasure at the fratricidal war that was raging between the North and the South, and nothing brought more joy to our hearts than to hear that the South had gained a victory, and tin pl‘l.‘..~tl)vci that the North would be 01 age m we 1:133): and yet. in spite of all th- so quolitn utimm, an upstart Territory is admitted over our heads and we are still left “out in the cold.” Why is this?

When the divine leaders of the Catholic Church in Luther’s day wanted to do a little business in merely selling pardons for sins, the Devil inspired ‘z'rnn wrcxsn" to oppose him. Even Pius the Ninth of our own day has had the same experience as Bro. Brigham in one respect. He says, that when God would teach the world implicit obedience to the Holy Ste in matters spiritual, the Devil inspires "'rnn wrcxrn" to oppose by their philosophy and worldly reason.
