Title Statehood
Description "Utah la a State" The click of the telegraph instrument conveyed the news that the people had long been walting for. At 9:03 A.M. in Utah, on Saturday, January 4, 1896, Utah assumed the robes of State sovereignty. To other states, statehood came as a matter of course; to Utah it came as a sacred deed of trust put in the hands of the people. The joy was too deep for any outward violent demonstration; but that did not disguise from any looker-on the truth that the people were immensely, intensely moved.9 MANTI; HOW WE CELEBRATED January 6, 1896 Early on Monday morning the booming of cannons, ringing of cow bells and blowing of whistles gratified the ear, or otherwise, with the noise. In every direction flags and bunting met the eye. Uncle Sam paraded the street accompanied by as many noise-makers as could be raked together. At 11 A.M. the citizens met at the Tabernacle and crowded it to its limits. The meeting was well warmed up by the stove brought from the SPV round house. -Call to order at 12 P.M. by Master of Ceremonies, Mayor Alder. -Music - Double Mixed Quartette --Invocation - Anthony W.
