It is Confirmed to day that Georg Q Cannon is arested & in the Hands of the Marshals. We are in the Midst of a National Persecution. The United States Government is making war upon the Latter Day Saints. Judgment is begining at the House of God. But if the Saints Suffer for their Religion Our Persecuters will Suffer for thir sins. Great things await this Generation. Behold the signs of the time. Watch for the Coming of the Son of Man.
