Latter-day Saints subtitle: Operations of Mormon Emissaries in Alabama and Georgia; Great Success in Making Converts of Young Women Wishing to Get Married; A Ku-Klux Klan Organized, and the Leading Utah Missionary Killed; The Work of Proselytism Progressing Vigorously, Despite of the Assassination
@ Brigham Young University
DescriptionA group of Mormon missionaries, led by Bishop Standing, have had great success finding converts in Alabama and in Georgia. They have been especially successful among the young women of the area who hope to find husbands in Utah. Those angry about the missionaries’ success have formed a Ku-Klux Klan and have killed Standing, which has caused great controversy and uproar in Georgia and which has only prompted the missionaries to work harder.
