Bickering Competitors

Which two Utah newspapers could not see eye to eye during pioneer times, and in a sense, even today?
a.                  The Deseret News and the Ogden Standard-Examiner
b.                  The Ogden Standard-Examiner and the Provo Herald
c.                   The Salt Lake Tribune and the Deseret News
d.                  The Salt Lake Tribune and the Provo Herald
Yesterday’s answer:
(D)   John Whittaker Taylor
From the life of John Whittaker Taylor:   He has had considerable business transactions with the government officials of Canada, by whom he is held in high esteem. In 1887 he had an interview with the then Canadian premier, Sir John A. McDonald, and to whom he had the privilege of bearing testimony to the truth of the gospel.
