ital. THE MORMON QUESTION.
Discussed at Length by the Governor of
Utah in His Annual Eoport
Washington, Oct. 3. Tho Mormon
question is discussed at some length by
Arthur D. Thomas, tho governor of Utah,
in his annual report to Secretary Noble.
IIo ausorts that tho Mormon people are
governed by the priests, and that in every
political and business act theohurch is put
lirst. tho country afterward. The popula
1 ion of the territory is estimated to be
Ii.0.032. an increase of HS per cent during
1 ho past ten years. Tho report says that
the average number of foreign born
brought to the territory by the Mormons
have been during tho past nine
y.'ars about 1.SU0 annually, and
that this average has probably
been maintained during the past year.
The governor says the political and ollicial
' irmon organ ioals in evasiousand mean
higltws words or words of double moaning,
hypocritical pretenses and false assertions.
,I's attitu :e toward polygamy is delusive
in the last degree. Jt knows that thero
has been no change on the subject but it
beeks to convey the impresMon that thero
has been. There is no reason to believe,
tho governor asserts, that any earthly
power can exact from the church any
declaration opposed to polygamy. Tho
gmernor says that, it is now over twenty
three years ince congress condemned po
lygamy in Utah. The laws of congress
have been ridiculed and treated with con
ic mpt so long as such a course was safe,
and then evaded and resisted as far as po-5-hible,
and during all this time no change
has taken place in the counsels or aims of
Mormonisni, and the conflict today is as
vlearly defined its over.
Washington, Oct. 3. Second Assistant
Post master General Whitfield has quali
fied as first assistant and will assume his

Beli, the recent general superintendent of

Domestic Trade in all Branches
a Large Increase.
New York, Oct. 3. R. G. Dun & Go's,
Weekly Review of Trade says: Never be
fore has thero been in uny month so great
an increase in the circulation or so large a
payment of public debt as in the month
just closed. Domestic trade is improving
in all directions and at least for the time
there is also improvement in exports,
which now show forthe past month a gain
of 7 per cent, over last year at New York.
Of tho magnitude of domestic trade it
appears that actual payments through
clearing houses outside of New York
were, in Septomper, 1 per cent greater
than last year. This is partly due to
higher prices, for the general average of
commodities has risen 1 per cent for tho
nast month. But the p.irninL'snf t.tin mil
roads as far as reported for September,
show a gain over 1 .st year of 1i per CGnt,
and tho movement of cattle and of cotton
is particularly heavy. In spite of the short
crop the movement of oats exceeded last
year's, while the decrease in wheat and
corn is partly balanced by increase
in flour. Sales of iron ore at
Cleveland thus far this year exceed last
year's by one-third. These items respect
ing the larger trades accord with accounts
from nearly all cities which continue
highly favorable. Boston notes healthy
and encouraging trade in New England.
Philadelphia reports more confidence.
Chicago notes besides heavy receipts of
grain, meats and cattle, a larger trade in
dry goods than last year with prompt col
lections, and the same in boots and shoes
and a larger trade but not so prompt col
lections in clothing. St. Louis notes
unusal activity in all lines with the dry
good' trade exceeding any previous year.
Cincinnati reports very liberal order for
clothing, a good trade in tobacco at favor
able prices and heavy movement of
fruits nud produce on account of local
scarcity Milwaukee notes a very good
trade, the clothiers especially being unable
to fill unexpected country orders. At
Savannah trade is very brisk. At St.
Paul and Minneapolie, Omaha, Denver
and Kansas City, it is very good. At
Detroit better than last year in some lines,
and at Pittsburg large volume and strong
in tone for finished iron and glass, but
less strong for pig iron and rails and for
glass chimneys Many works there are
hurrying preparations to turn out tin
nlate. Tho iron market is singu
larly sustained, in spito of un
precedented product, by tho unprecedented
demand. A shnrp advance in tin closed
with urices nominally 24 cents, though the
visible supply is greater than , year ago.
Lake coppe is firmly held at 17 cents not
withstanding raids on other grades, and
lead is strong at $Ti.37, some foreign having
been bought for importation. Cotton anil
collee have been unchanged in price, with
oil and hogs lower, but the price of wheat
has advanced while oats have declined.
Tho details given show that in all parts
of the country and all important branches
of business there is phenomenal activity,
and nevertheless there is comparative free
dom from speculative excitement or
disturbances. Tho general sound
ness of trade is shown by the
reports of failures, which for the third
quarter of lstX) wero smaller in number
and amount of liabilities than for the
same quarter of 18SD, though in Canada
rather larger in both respects. The de
crease in number in the United States was
small, '2,197 this year against 2,J7o last
year, but the liabilities were but ?35.4.V2.
i:;5 against KVJ27.(Mr last year, showing a
decrease in the average for each firm fail
ing. Itio business failures occurring
throughout the country during the past
seven days number 197 as compared with
210 last week. For the corresponding
week of last year tho figures were 20(5.
TO CONTEST THE WILL.
Chicago. 111;. Oct. 3. Tho will of the
late Johu Crerar, which disposed of an es
tate of nearly $3,000 000. much of it being
bequeathed to charitable and religious in
stitutions in this city, is to be contested
and court proceedings will soon be com
menced in what will probably prove to be
one of the most celebrated cases of its kind
on record. The attorneys in the case, it is
asserted, have found several weak points
in the will which they say cannot stand
under law. The heirs who" will make the
contest are living in this city and in differ
ent parts of Ontario.
The grounds on which it is proposed to I
invalidate tne library bequest are the
same as those on which the bequest for a
library in New York in the will of the
late amuel J. Tilden was invalidated,
viz: That a bequestcannot be legally made
to anything that does not exist. It is also
proposed to attack the bequest to the
Scotch Presbyterian church of New YorK

The comte, who is a tall, broad-shouldered

kindly blue eyes, said in a very pleasant

'I am glad to meet you, gentlemen, and to

DAMAGES FOR ALIENATION.
Denvkh. Colo.. Oct. 3. The sensational
case of Kate Williams vs. her mother-in-law,
Mrs. E. L. Williams, for alienating
the affections of her husband, concluded
here today with a verdict in favor of the
plaintiff "for $12,500. In 1SSS, Edward
Williams, who was the son of one of the
first families of Brooklyn, contracted a
second marriage with the daughter
of a farmer. lhe marriage was
kept a secret a year. the wife
residing in New York City and tho
husband dividing his time between her
and his father's tamily. After a year had
elapsed Mrs. Kate Williams grew uneasy
with the thought that her husband was
cooling towards her, and she went to his
home and declared herself to be the wife
of Edward. From the moment that Mrs.
Wiliams appeared in the house of her
mother-in-law there was a tempest In that
home. The mother of Edward was terri
bly shocked at what she deemed
the mesalliance of her sou. It was
soon discovered that one roof was
not large enough for the two families, and
the mother-in-law suggested that the
newly married couple go west and grow
up with the country, which they agreed
to. On the way Mrs. Kate claims that her
husband revealed the true object of the
western trip to he to get rid of her at his
mother's request. After the j oung couple
had resided here about six months
the mother-in-law came upon the
scene and endeavored to mnke negotia
tions looking toward a separation. Of that
feature in the case there is no dispute.
First, Mrs. Williams was offered $1,000 to
quietly withdraw from her husband and
produce a voluntary separation. She in
dignantly refused the offer. Then the
otter was raised to $1,050 on condition that
Mrs. Kate should not have any claim
upon her husband's money, and about this
tinieKate Williams instituted divorce pro
ceedings against her husband, and also
entered suit against Mrs. E. Z. Williams
for $50,000 damages, on the charge of nn at
tempt to alienate her son's affections from
his wife. Yonng Williams at ths same
time transferred to his mother $50,000
worth of bonds he had, for the purpose of
preventing his wife getting any part of
them. The case has created considerable
interest here, and will probably go to the
THE NEW TARIFF BILL.
Its Effect on the Export Produce Trade
Cafe Vincent, N. Y., Oct. 3. The seed
houses here are working full force night
and day, and emptying as many schoouers
as possible in order to get their Canadian
grown pens and beans into the country
before the McKinley bill goes into effect.
Por.T IIoi'E. OnL, Oct. Schooners,
steamers and cars are rushing everything
to the frontier before the higher Ameri
can duties come into force on the Oth inst.
It is feared, however, that today's storm
will prevent a large quantity of produce
from getting over in time aud buyers have
therefore stopped buying anything more
for the L'uited States. This has caused an
almost complete stagnation in barley,
eggs and apples, and a stagnation is likely
to continue for some weeks or until the
new regulations are understood. It is too
early to say what effect the McKinley bill
will have here. The major part of this
season's production will have to market
under the old tariff, and tho bill has done
good in the matter of prices.
SAUNIA, Out., Oct. 3. The fact that the
McKinley bill will come into force on Oc
tober G has had the effect of materially
lowering the price of barley. A high price
was paid for several days by those buying
for shipment to the United states before
the bill came into force. It is likely that
the effect of the bill in the future will he
to lower the price of barley in the district,
and the United States as a market for
Canadian eggs is considered practically
Bfi.tville, Ont.. Oct. 3. The effect of
the (Mtssage of the McKinley bill has been
to hurry lorward shipments of barley, of
which the elevators aud warehouses "have
been cleared. Half the crop, which is a
light one. has already been moved. A very
large exjort of peas and apples has been
made. Ail the eggs in .tore have also
beeu shipped. The prosjeclive effect of
the measure will be to stop the export of
barley and peas, unless the United States
prices advance to such an extent that
about present prices can be paid. The ex
port of eggs will also be stopped.

SPEAKER DANIELS SUFFERING
FROM NERVOUS EXHAUSTION.
The War-Like Demonstrations and
Exciting Scenes Prove too
Much for Him.
He Sendi to the House an Apology for
Signing the Bill in the Form
of a Resolution.
Mutterings are Heard on Every Side and a
Single Spark Would Oause Trouble
An Oklahoma Oity Contingent
The Old Combine has Gone to Pieces and
Kingfisher May Come to the Front
With a Pole Long Enough to
Knock the Persimmon.
Special Dispatch to the Dally Eaele.
Guthrie, Ok., Oct. 3. A leaden sky was
in harmony with the occasion. That the
combine as it was has been shattered, goes
without saying. Trltt, Clark and Gar-
denhire have gone over to the other side
and in future they can act more naturally,
as their position has always been a strained
one. The new combine will favor King
fisher for the capltul. Now the Santa Fe
and Rock Island will take a band. The
contest will be a warm one, as in event of
Kingfisher winning the capital it is ques
tioned whether there would be any doubt
about the executive signing it.
The leading pol:ticians of Oklahoma aro
on hand to show their sagacity. The
southern element of the territory look
upon the mob of yesterday as being of a
political nature and say it now remains for
the Demoorats to stand together and make
every other question subservient.
Rumor says that upon Oklahoma City
receiving the news, yesterdny, that their
members were in peril, hundreds of excited
men gathered and determined to go to
Guthrie. Better counsel prevailed, how
ever. Guthrie has ever shown a cool head
and no serious trouble need be fenred.
Thus far the legislature has accomplished
almost nothing. People outside of Okla
homa City and Guthrie are disgusted
and humiliated. They begin to think
their representatives cut a sorry figure as
legislators. If this filibustering continues
the territory would be better off had tho
legislature never assembled. Nearly five
weeks and what are the results? A few
emergency bills, filibustering and aimless
talk ad nauseam. A good raking ovor by
the constituency might have a beneficial
Thero seems to be a feeling that is
wholly unwarranted that Guthrie will
take some undue advantage of Oklahoma
City. Mutterings are heard and a spark
would cause trouble.
GUTnniE, Ok., Oct. 3. Mr. Jones In the
chair. Twenty-four members present, Mr.
Sneaker and Mr. Waggoner being absent.
Minutes read and Mr. Merteu raised a
question in regard to their exactness.
Mr. Terrill moved a reconsideration.
Chair It did not carry.
Mr. Merten asked for a re-reading of the
journal, which was had. Mr. Merten
made a correction, the motion prevailed
and the previous question was ordered.
Mr Terrill There was no vote taken on
the last motion I made.
Chair Vote was pending.
Merten According to the journnl as
read there was an adjournment of the
house after the previous question had boon
ordered and before the main question had
been put. This on its face is so totally
foreigntoall parliamentary usage that!
would not like to have this go out to the
world as approved by this legislature. I
do not understand that the journal has
been corrected. I move the iournal be so
corrected thnt it shall read, "and the
previous question was ordered."
Mr. Terrill I understand that the pre
vious question was ordered and carried.
Mr. Trosper called to the chair.
Mr. Jones The gentleman from Logan
asked that the correction be made and the
pr-vious question ordered If the previous
question is on the first question it is all
right, but was not it made on the last
Mr. Merteu The gentlemnn is labor
ing under a mistake. We refer to the
the firt previous question. Was the vote
taken on the mam question? Does the
journal show such a motion
Clerk Think my record is wrong.
Mr. Jones I want the journal right.
Mr. Adair The clerk called my name
and I an-.wered to it, but the journal does
not show it.
Mr Campbell I understand the clerk
says it was an error caused by the mis
placement of a sheet.
The clerk corrected the minutes as re
quested, and Mr. Jones asked that the
journal be read again.
Mr. Terrill Owing to the fact that yes
terday evening there was an unseemly
scramble over nothing, and owing
to the fact that this town
is filled with armed men, I ask that the
house be cleared of all but the pres and
