Scathing piece against Thomas Kearns, Frank J. Cannon and others for their perceived anti-Mormon activities."Kearns came to Utah from Nebraska, a fugitive from Justice, not daring to use his own name, but going under an alias to escape the hangman's noose, and bearing the brand of Cain. Since he has been here he has established a reputation as a libertine, a despoiler of women, a man absolutely without principle in any walk of life, ignorant, uncouth, revengeful, with few if any redeeming qualities.""Frank J. Cannon, ex-editor of the Salt Lake Tribune, the oratorical leader of the gang, a man who takes great pleasure in saying mean things against the authorities of the 'Mormon' Church, is a natural born crook, who as far back as twenty-five years, robbed a house of prostitution and carried away hundreds of dollars' worth of jewelry."Flake/Draper 4621
