[Church Historian Andrew Jensen]
A number of disgruntled politicians met in the Auerbach Hall, Salt Lake City, abused the Church and discussed the prospects for an anti-Mormon political party in Utah. Several malicious speeches were made in which the Church was accused of interfering in politics. Senator Thomas Kearns was connected with the movement, and the Salt Lake "Tribune" the official organ.
