125 years ago today - Jan 15, 1897; Friday

Letters were received by Pres[ident]. [Wilford] Woodruff today from Senators Henry M. Teller, of Colo[rado]., and Richard F. Pettigrew of South Dakota, and also a telegram complaining that Church influence was being used in Idaho against the re-election to the United States Senate of Fred T. Dubois. The following reply was sent to Senators Teller and Pettigrew, at Washington, D.C.:

"Individual members of our church are doubtless opposed to Senator Dubois' election. No man has the right to use Church influence against him. Numbers of us are not opposed to his election, and we have so stated to our friends. (Signed) Wilford Woodruff."...
