Title Ezra Clark, page 035
Description EZRA THOMPSON CLARK 35 mission which Ezra filled with Truman Leonard, Thomas Steed, and John Gleason. October 8, 1874, he filled a mission in Canada with Messrs. Leonard, Steed, and Height, and returned home March 4, 1875. In 1876 he went to Oregon and labored as a missionary with Alonzo Hvde. When Davis Stake was organized in 1877, he was chosen a member of the High Council. After appointment to the High Council, according to the rules of the Church, Elder Clark's religious activities were confined to local interests. On June 4, 1894, he was ordained a patriarch, and he gave all of his family and many of his friends a patriarchal * blessing. . From 1884 until 1890, prosecution under the Edmunds Law for polygamy prevailed throughout the territory. United States deputy marshals raided every settlement in the territory of Utah in search of polygamists. Many fami- lies went into exile, some going to Canada and others to Mexico. Most of the leaders of the Church went into hid- ing. The Church historian reports that the situation was truly critical, but so thoroughly convinced were the Saints of the righteousness of their conduct that the punishment was relieved of all humiliation. On September I, 1886, Ezra Clark was arrested on a charge of polygamy and placed under bonds. February 17, 1887, a jury found him guilty, and on February 21 Judge Zane of the Third Judicial District Court, sentenced him and ten others to six months imprisonment and a $300.00 fine. Judge Zane was heard to remark after sentence was passed, "There go some noble men." In July 1887, he was discharged from the penitentiary.
