Also contains information on John Whitmer, who stated, "...he knew as well as he knew he had an existence that Joseph (Smith) translated the ancient writing which was upon the plates which he 'saw and handled,' and which, as one of the scribes, he helped to copy, as the words fell from Joseph's lips, by supernatural or almighty power."

Baptism For The Dead [from The Saint's Advocate vol. 3], 1880 Baptism For The Dead [from The Saint's Advocate vol. 3], 1880 (PDF)
by W. W. Blair
Article discusses baptism for the dead. "It is not commonly known that President Young taught and administered baptism for the dead in a very different way than Joseph did, This he admits, in part, while at Nauvoo, after Joseph's death, as may be seen by consulting his sermons in the Times and Seasons. And it is not commonly known to Utah Saints that Joseph taught that baptism for the dead could be done properly, only by revelation; that is, that no living person should be baptized for a dead one unless there was a divine revelation through 'the man of God;' (to say that the dead one desired, and was prepared for, such proxy baptism; but such is the fact. Faith and repentance, must precede baptism; and how can it be known that any dead person has the requisite faith and repentance except it is revealed through legitimate channel, 'the man of God?'"

21 page articles from The Saints' Advocate on the abomination of polygamy. Brother Derry states, "Knowing the tenacity with which the people of Utah cling to the Bible as authority in behalf of polygamy, I have concluded to give the Bible history of that abomination, and show that there is no evidence in that sacred volume that it was ever given as a means of salvation or exaltation in the kingdom of God; and further, that the instances of its practice present no evidence of divine sanction, much less of divine appointment. I shall also refer to its history in the Book of Mormon."

by Alfred White

Experience of Elder Alfred White given in 1885. He states that he was very concerned about how Zion would be redeemed. The voice of the God spoke to him and said, "'The time was when my people might have redeemed Zion, if they had kept my counsel, but now it has passed out of their power. I will redeem Zion in its time, and I will do it in this way:' Then I saw a narrow and very bright red ring which included Independence and a portion of the surrounding country, the center of which seemed to be a little southwest of where I was standing on a high spot of ground. Then he said, 'Do you see that ring?' I said, 'Yes.' Then he said, 'I have sanctified all of the ground inside of this ring, and I will not suffer any person to live inside of this ring except those who keep the celestial law.'" The experience continues for another 3 pages.
