Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION " Praise God From ^^Vhom All Blessings Flow GREAT LANDSLIDE OCCURS In Salt Lake-American Party Owns trie Earth In the city election yesterday the American party took ill in sight. Ezra Thompson and the entire American ticket has been elected by a plurality of seven hundred. It is a glorious victory. It is a triumph of right. It is a victory for the American home. It sounds the death knell of church domination in Salt Lake and in Utah. It means a greater Salt Lake, a greater Utah. It says to the people of the United States that the people of Salt Lake do not indorse, nor condone the acts of the hierarch and his band of 26 in their open and defiant defiance of the laws of both God and man. It means the retirement of the Apostolic Senator, Reed Smoot, from the Senate of the United States. It is magnificent, and The Tribune extends congratulations to the grand army of men and women in Salt Lake who so nobly stood by the American party in the battle of Tuesday. The new Council will stand-eight Gentiles,- seven churchmen. The Councilmen elected yesterday are: First ward, Martin and Crabtree, Americans: Second ward, O'Donnell and Carter, Americans, Fifth ward. Black and Mulvey, Americans; six in all. Third ward, Holley and Fernstrom, Church; Fourth ward, Hartenstein and Tuddenham, Church. The holdovers are Davis and Hobday, Gentile Republicans; Preece, Mormon Republican; Well* and Barnes, Mormon Democrats. MOST NEWSPAPERS EARLY in the 20th century supported a political party's aims. Before either the Republican or Democratic party was an organized force in Utah, the Salt Lake Tribune editorially boosted the American Party and when it captured a huge victory in the municipal election the paper devoted its entire November 8, 1905 front page to trumpeting the triumph, complete with the flowery oratory that was typical of the day and an assortment of eagles, one the message-bearer. Others elected represented the Gentile Republican, Mormon Republican and Mormon Democratic parties. 154
