Note

Mormon Pioneer of 1852. John Caine was a University regent and city recorder. Manager of Salt Lake Herald. Delegate to the United States House of Representatives from the Territory of Utah. Caine was an unsuccessful Democratic candidate for the position of first governor of the newly formed State of Utah in 1895

_images/Caine_John_T.jpg

(son of Thomas Caine and Elinor Cubbon of the Isle of Man, Parish of Kirk Patrick). Born January 8, 1829, on the Isle of Man. Came to Utah September 20, 1852, captain of ten in the James McGaw company of fifty wagons.

Married:Margaret Nightingale October 22, 1850, St. Louis, Missouri.(her grandmother, Mary Leach, was the second woman baptized into the LDS church in Europe. She lived at Nauvoo, and later went to St. Louis).
The family record of Mr. and Mrs. Caine shows them to be the parents of thirteen children, eight of whom are living, namely,:
  1. Agnes Ellen, who is Mrs. Arthur Pratt;
  2. John T., Jr., registrar in the Utah Agricultural College at Logan;
  3. Albion William, a rancher near Missoula, Montana;
  4. Joseph Edgar, a former captain of the Utah Volunteer Cavalry in the Philippines, afterward cashier of the Utah Commercial and Savings Bank, secretary Salt Lake Commercial Club; and at this time secretary Oakland (California) Commercial Club;
  5. Julia Dean, Mrs. George D. Alder;
  6. Charles Arthur, secretary of the Caine & Hooper Company;
  7. Florence Nightingale, Mrs. Will G. Farrell;
  8. Margaret Nightingale, and Mrs. William G. Patrick.

He was a school teacher in Utah; missionary to Sandwich Islands; actor, stage manager and editor at Salt Lake City; territorial legislator; University regent and city recorder such is a partial epitome of the pre-delegate record of this self-made man, rising step by step from the humblest walks of life to the high and honorable position of United States Congressman from Utah. As missionary to the Hawaiian mission, where he presided over the Oahu conference, the climate did not agree with him, and President Young recalled him. Reaching Utah October, 1856, he was made secretary of the legislature in session at Fillmore, which adjourned to Salt Lake City, and was with that body until its adjournment. He was secretary of a commission appointed by this legislature to codify the United States laws applicable to territories. He held the same positions in the legislatures for many years afterwards. He was also military secretary (with the rank of lieutenant-colonel) on the staff of General Daniel Wells, commanding the Nauvoo Legion, and once a private clerk to President Brigham Delegated to carry a protest from the people of Utah to Washington, D. C., against the Cullom bill, then pending in Congress, he created much favorable comment. Manager of Salt Lake Herald, established 1872, and third owner; member constitutional convention of 1882; elected to congress that year, taking his seat March, 1883; presided over the constitutional conventional of 1887, and strongly urged the adoption of a clause in the proposed constitution prohibiting polygamy, believing this to be the true solution of the “Mormon” problem, and the only course that would satisfy the government of the United States.

He presented the constitution and its accompanying documents to Congress, and on February 18, 1888, before the Senate committee on territories, made a strong argument in support of the honesty and sincerity of the people of l in proposing this solution of the vexing question. During the same year, on the 25th of August and the 4th of October, he delivered in the House his noted speeches, “Polygamy in Utah a Dead Issue,” and “Mormon Facts Versus Anti-Mormon Fictions.” In the beginning of 1889 he made an able and forcible argument before the House committee on territories in favor of Utah’s admission as a State. All the while, in and out of Congress, he was stemming a perfect torrent of anti-Utah measures, one of which, by Senator Paddock of Nebraska, an ex-member of the Utah Commission, proposed the redistricting and reapportionment of Salt Lake City by the governor, secretary and members of that commission, in such a way as to give the “Liberals” control of the city government. Senator Cullom, of Illinois, and Delegate Dubois, of Idaho, presented legislative commission bills Mr. Caine’s plea to senators and members was that they should wait and see if the Edmunds-Tucker law would not accomplish all that was desired in the settlement of the “Mormon” question. He introduced a bill for an enabling act for Utah, and set on foot the movement that resulted in the appointment of a fourth federal judge for Utah. A pleasant episode in the midst of these stormy experiences was his attendance, as Utah’s representative, in New York City, April 29, 30, and May 1, 1889, at the great celebration in honor of the centennial anniversary of the inauguration of George Washington as president of the opening of the Fifty-first Congress found him at his post, fighting the infamous measures known as the Cullom and Struble bills, which proposed to disfranchise all members of the L. D. S church who were American citizens, and prevent the naturalization of Mormon aliens. On April 23, 1890, Mr. Caine, before the House committee on territories, delivered a masterful and convincing argument against the Struble bill, which, though favorably reported, prevented it from coming before the House for action. Our delegate and his congressional friends also blocked the way of the new Edmund’s bill, proposing to devote the funds he cheated from the Mormon church to the public schools of Utah. Upon the passage of the bill for the admission of Idaho, he made a speech favoring statehood for that Territory; but opposing those provisions of the enabling act which disfranchised for their church membership, all Mormons citizens residing there.

But it was not alone in antagonizing measures inimical to his Mormon constituents, that our delegate’s zeal and efficiency were shown. He fought repeatedly and successfully the proposed removal of the Southern Ute Indians from Colorado to Utah, and secured measures for the relief of the inhabitants of Ferron, Richfield, and Morgan, enabling them to increase the area of their town site entries by filing upon school lands within their corporate limits. He obtained appropriations for the construction and completion of the Utah penitentiary, and for the benefit of the Shebit Indians in Washington county. He presented bills for the erection of government buildings at Salt Lake City and Ogden, for the creation of a land office at Ogden, and for the granting of a tract of sixty acres for a University site on the Fort Douglas military reservation. He also secured, during the anti-polygamy crusade, presidential clemency and full pardons for many old and feeble men who were undergoing imprisonment in the prisons of Utah and other places.

In these and all other matters requiring executive action Mr. Caine speaks in warm terms of the magnanimity and high sense of justice manifested by President Cleveland. With the president, the heads of departments, and the attaches of several government offices, he maintained the most cordial relations. Uniformly dignified and courteous, he enjoyed the confidence and respect of his associates in Congress, made no enemies, and had many warm friends. During the whole of his experience as delegate he served as a member of the National Democratic Campaign committee, representing Utah, and took an active part in all its deliberations for the advancement of Democratic Interests in the several congressional districts. The influence thus gained was ever at the command of his constituents, and no citizen of Utah, nor even of Idaho or Arizona, Mormon or not, ever appealed to him in vain for assistance, when to give such assistance was proper and possible.

To recount the full story of his combats, victories and defeats in the Forty-eighth, Forty-ninth, Fiftieth and Fifty-second Congresses, to each of which he was elected by an overwhelming majority (his plurality at the last election being nearly ten thousand), would require much space. It might almost be said that a battle royal was waged from start to finish throughout his eleven years of service, the final victory coming to Mr. Caine and the people for whom he faithfully fought. In the practically unanimous consent of all parties to admit Utah into the Union. On January 7, 1892, he introduced in the House the Utah Home Rule bill, duplicated by Mr. Faulkner in the Senate, and in February considered by the Senate and House committees on territories. Delegations from Utah, introduced by Mr. Caine, spoke for and against the measure. H. W. Smith, C. C. Richards, J. W. Judd, F. S. Richards, T. J. Anderson, J. L. Rawlins, F. H. Dyer, and ex-Governor West, in favor of It, and O. W. Powers, C. E. Allen, C. W. Bennett and John Henry Smith in opposition. The latter two argued in favor of statehood rather than against home rule. Before the Senate committee, Delegate Caine read the Mormon petition for amnesty, dated December 19, 1891, and signed by the First Presidency and Twelve Apostles, thus securing its publication as a part of the proceedings. He worked zealously for the Home Rule bill, and on July 8, 1892, saw it pass the House, thus clearing the way for Statehood.

Upon the dissolution of the “People’s” and “Liberal” parties, Mr. Caine, who had always been a Democrat in spirit, became identified with and one of the leaders of the Democratic party of Utah. In June, 1892, he attended as a delegate the National Democratic convention at Chicago which nominated Grover Cleveland for his second term as president. There was a contesting delegation, headed by Judge Powers, representing the “Tuscarora Society,” mostly Democratic members of the fast dying “Liberal” party. Mr. Caine’s acquaintance and influence with public men, members of the convention, was largely Instrumental in seating the regular delegates Judge Henry P. Henderson and himself. As a member of the committee on platform and resolutions, he secured a clause in the platform favoring statehood for all the Territories having the requisite qualifications. Back again in Congress, January 14, 1893, he introduced in the House, a bill for an enabling act to admit Utah into the Union, and a similar bill at his request was introduced by Mr. Faulkner in the Senate. It failed of passage owing to the flood of business at the close of that session, and the change of administration, but practically identical with it was the bill that became a law in the next Congress. With statehood in sight the public boom for which he had toiled so long and faithfully Delegate Caine was the logical candidate for re-election 1892, but it being suggested to him by personal friends among his fellow partisans, after the organization of the Democratic party of Utah, that in order to show the country that the dissolution of the “People’s” party was an honest reality, it would be advisable to nominate a non-Mormon for delegate, he willingly sacrificed his own political interests, and heartily joined in the nomination and zealously worked for the election of Honorable Joseph L. Rawlins. The next year Utah went Republican, that party electing a majority of the members of the legislature. Fearing the effect upon Congress, which was strongly Democratic, and was then considering the Utah Statehood bill, which passed the House in December of that year, Mr. Caine was prevailed upon by prominent Utah Democrats, in January 1894 to take a trip to Washington and consult with Democratic leaders in Congress over the Utah situation. The result was all that could be desired. While those leaders were disappointed at the outcome of the election, they declared that the Territory had all the qualifications for Statehood, and was entitled to admission into the Union. The enabling act passed the Senate in July, 1894, and on the 16th of that month was approved by President Cleveland.

As Chairman of the Democratic territorial committee, Mr. Caine, in the fall of the same year, waged an energetic campaign, many Democrats being elected to the constitutional convention, which, however, had a Republican majority; that party also elected the delegate to Congress, Honorable Frank J. Cannon. In August, 1895, Mr. Caine again went east in the interest of his party. At the Democratic convention for the nomination of State officers, held at Ogden, in anticipation of Statehood, on the 5th of September, he was almost unanimously nominated for Governor, but in the election, after a thorough canvass of the Territory with Honorable B. H. Roberts, he shared the fate of his party, receiving 18,519 votes as against 20,833 cast for the successful Republican candidate, Honorable Heber M. Wells. In 1896 he was nominated for the State Senate and elected, receiving a majority of 3,820 votes over any senatorial candidate on the opposition ticket. He served but one session in the Senate, having drawn the short, or one-year term.

In the interim of retiring from Congress in March, 1893, and the advent of statehood in 1896, Mr. Caine was Auditor of Public Accounts for the Territory. He was afterwards superintendent of waterworks for Salt Lake City. In business life he has also figured prominently. He was one of the original stockholders and directors of Zion’s Savings Bank and Trust Company, and is a director, secretary and treasurer of the Josepa Agricultural and Stock Company, promoting the settlement of native Hawaiians on a large ranch in Skull Valley.

Warning

Charles Cowley never used the middle name ‘Caesar’. This was a mistake published by the Sons of Pioneers. Family historian Marilyn Thomsen researched Charles Cowley’s Isle of Man birth records, marriage, church, naturalization, and cemetery records, his journal and his children’s histories, none of which ever showed him using the middle name ‘Caesar’. She believes the mistake was made because his oldest son, Charles Caesar Cowley, added ‘Jr.’ to his name to prevent being mistaken for his father.
