Title The Manti Herald and Sanpete Advertiser
Description Other interesting news items which are too long to quote are here presented in abstract. In the issue dated February 10, 1867, the paper presents the result of the general election held February 12. There was one contrary vote to amend the Territorial Constitution. The vote for W. M. Hooper, delegate to Congress, was unanimous: 1225 votes in Sanpete and 138 in Sevier. The county superintendent of schools announced that with the estray funds he had made a purchase of textbooks cheaply. The books had been given to local school trustees who would give them to pupils whose parents were too poor to buy books. Plans for the construction of a city wall were being formulated. Strange to say, even though the Black Hawk War was in progress, protection from Indian attack was not given as a reason for having a wall. The editor regarded the wall as the "Capstone to the kingdom." He wrote, "Now when we say a City Wall, we mean one of those substantial stone and mortar concerns that will not only enclose but increase the value of property immensely and through its solidity and workmanship-like finish will stand for ages as a monument of credit and intelligent industry on the part of the builders! " Information concerning F. C . Robinson is sketchy. The 1860 census lists F. C. Robinson, Manti; age 30; born in England; married to Elizabeth, 11 years his junior. They had one daughter, Sarah. From his paper we learn that he was county clerk and agent for the W.S. Seeley Co. of Mt. Pleasant. Following are two of his editorials which yield some idea of the kind of man he was: OUR POLITICS. Is to learn our public and Domestic duties, then exert every faculty to faithfully perform them. To do good to our friends and if our enemies will let us alone, we will let them alone. We will sustain all good men with small talent, rather than bad men with great ability. We will defend Truth, virtue and Good order in the community. As wire pulling is our object of contempt we will try and be upright and aboveboard in all we do. "Go thou and do likewise." AMEN! -116-
