About

In 1871, three ex-communicated members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints launched the daily Salt Lake Tribune. The first daily edition appeared on April 15, announcing that the new publication would "be a purely secular journal," making it "the organ of no religious body whatsoever." The new paper had emerged from the ruins of an earlier venture called Utah Magazine, which failed when Mormon officials urged a boycott, calling the periodical "directly opposed to the work of God." Undaunted by the demise of the weekly magazine, the Tribune founders intensified their opposition to the Church, which controlled the influential opposition paper, Deseret News.
