Burrows of Michigan thru the senate
chamber today, "the committee on
privileges and elections was astounded

wroposed to continue the practice so
as he pleased, defiantlv asserting
that 'the congress of the United Stated
had no business with my private con-
duct.' We were amazed to learn
from this head saint and seer, this pro
phet and revelator, this mouthpiece of
God, this shepherd of a patient and suf
fering flock, this convicted and' amnes
tied offender against law and decency,
whose faith and honor had been hypoth
ecated for himself and his followers for
the observance of the law, confess that
he was now living with five women as
his wives, and had been ever since
1890, in open defiance of divine and
human statutes, and had had forty-two
children, eleven of whom had beenBora

"Mr. President, if the press is to be
credited, this number has been aug

three, and while we are discussing the
right of the representative of the hier

Senator Burrows was making the ef
fort 6f his life. For the first time since1
he entered the senate in 1895 he was
making a speech to attract attention
thruout the country and he made all he
could of his opportunitv As isrosecu
tkig attorney in the tiial of Reed
Smoot of Utah as to his right to a seat
in the senate, Senator Bm rows had the
opening of the case and that was what
he was doing when he made the highly
personal remarks about the head of the
Mormon church as quoted.
Demands Smoot's Expulsion.
Senator Burrows asked the senate to
expel Smoot, but not on the ground
that he is a polygannst. He conceded
that Smoot is not one. But he desired
him denied a seat in the United States
senate because he is one of the twelve
apostles of the Utah branch of the Mor
mon chdreh, and in that capacity
charged him with taking obliga
tions of such a treasonable char
acter as to make it impossible
for him to honor his oath of of
fice and support the constitution of the
United States. This was the case
against Smoot in brief. There were oth
er and collateral charges and side
lights, but it all amounted to the above
upon analvsis. Senator Burrows deliv
ered a speech of just about the same
length as the president's recent mes
sage to congress, and in it he gave a
history of the Mormon church and a
lesume of the testimony heard by the
committee on. privileges and elections
during the investigation of the case,
which led a majority of the committee
to report against allowing Smoot to
hold his seat.
He went thru the history of the Mor
mon church for the purpose "of demon
strating that the Mormon church as at
first organized, and as still conducted
everywhere, save in, Utah, is a worthy
institution, but that the Utah Mormons
are only a- degenerate offshoot, bound by
oath to, rebellion and treason against
the government of the United States,
and wantonly violating and defying
the laws of the country. Smoot, as^ one
of the twelve apostles of the Utah Mor
mon church and therefore one of the
highest governing body of that church,
was accused of necessarilv supporting
the church in all its iniquities, and
therefore unfit to sit in the senate of
the United States.
Five Apostles Polygamists.
President Harrison, and President
Cleveland also (not to be outbid by
ft republican president for Jkhe Mormon
vote), issued a manifesto granting com
plete amnesty to all Mormons who
would agree to abstain from polygamy
but Senator Burrows charged that not
only tTfe president of the church, Jo
seph Smith, but -^practically all the
apostles except Smoot had violated the
terms of the amnesty, and that five of
the apostles had even taken additional
wives since the amnesty was granted,
and that Smoot, as one of the apostles,
must have known of this and given it

Cincinnati, Dec. 11.A remarkable
interview published here today credited
Mrs. Bellamy Storer with the state
ment that she and her husband "cre
ated President Roosevelt." Mrs. Stor
er today said that while she had seen
a newspaper woman last night and had
said some of the things credited to her,
the report as published gave an entire

said and that undue prominence had
been given to certain incidents related
during the inteiview. While unable

According to the interview to which
Mrs. Storer alludes, President Roose
velt owes much today to Mr. Storer
and herself. In this interview Mrs.
Storer is quoted as saying that it was
thru a personal appeal on her part that
President McKmley appointed Mr.
Roosevelt assistant secretary of the
navy. Mr. Roosevelt was then com
missioner of police in New York, and
according to Mrs. Storer, so her inter
viewer says, Mr McKinley was strong
ly opposed to giving Mr. Roosevelt the
place in the navy department. Ac
cording to the same interviewer, Mrs.
Storer quoted a letter of Mr. Roosevelt
expressing a deep sense of gratitude to
Mr. and Mrs. Storer for their kind of

says that Mrs. Storer said
"Before his election as president he
had worked haid and had three people

The following statement in reply to
the letter of President Roosevelt has
been issued by Mr. Storer:
"My letter to the president and his
cabinet was written for the cool, delib
erate judgment of men who should be
kept informed of the true facts in the
conduct of the administration. It was
not written for the public nor hurried
ly given to the press to anticipate pub
lic opinion. It stands, when taken in
full, as my statement, and should be
taken as an entirety, and, as such, I
ask its calm perusal. In itself it is
an answer to many things the presi
dent has seen fit to say, but as new
njatter has been put forward by Mr.
Roosevelt I feel compelled to speak.
"There was no need of violent and
insulting adjectives to show that the
president dislikes me and did not wish
me to remain in the service or to retire
from it in any customary way.
"While the past has shown that few
men can differ with either the wishes
or the memory of Mr. Roosevelt with

I give in full a letter from the
president in answer to what he said

both because it is a letter for him to
be proud of from its full appreciation
of eminent public men (apart from any
reference to myself) and alsb to show
that my wife's letter to which this was
an answer, now spoken of only with a
sneer, was considered differently by Mr.
Roosevelt at the time it was received.

Paris, Dec. 11.After a meeting of
the cabinet ministers today it was an

It is also positively stated that the

Mgr. Montagnini was later teday ar

Among the other measures the cabi

This is a historic day for France.
The struggle, which began in 1880 with
the banishment of the Jesuits, ended
today with the legal rupture of the
bond which for practically a thousand
years uninterruptedly has united
church and state. By the refusal of
the required declaration, under the
public meeting law of 1881, public

organizations, tomorrow becomes ille
The scenes in some of the churches
were extremely touching. Not in
years had there been such an attend
ance at mass. The number of women
was especially large and was note
worthy as indicating the religious in
difference of the male population. Al
tho. seven-eighths of the inhabitants of
this city are nominally Catholics, in
no parts of the city were the churches
crowded. Even at Notre Dame cathe

celebrated, the edifice was only half
filled. The officiating clergy read the
regular offices for the week as usual
without referring to their illegal status

May Avoid. Violence. -U.
But it is becoming more apparent
that both the government officials and
higher^eclesiatics are resisting the^M
vice of the int^mperatfe. Minister *o
Public Worship Briand announces that
the government cannot be driven into
the trap of closing the churches," and
Cardinal Richard, archbishop of Paris,
has strongly censured the placarding of
appeals to the clericals to make violent
resistance to the officers of the law.
"No violence," he says, "but passive
resistance to the unjust law after ex
hausting all protests at every step."
This is the disposition so far as the
higher ecclesiastics are concerned, but
their followers evidently have no inten
tion to submit and are preparing to as
sume the role of martyrs, abandon the
churches and organize private worship.

that that city will not give* King
Haakon the honors usually paid to vis

slight King Haakon, it is declared, but
because the municipal authorities have
decided that receptions to visiting mon

is an unofficial report which shows that
Berlin spent a million marks in enter

This startling evidence against
Henry M. Sussman, who is on trial for
the murder of his wife, Fannie Sussman,
was given today by Miss Rose Mesinger,
qr Messenger as the family is usually
known. She is a sister of the murdered
woman, and being only two years
younger, was more of a companion to
her than were the other members of the
family. Moreover, she is an intelligent
young woman and gave her evidence in
a clear-cut, convincing manner.
Two notable facts bearing upon the
crime were brought out for the first'
time by this witnessthe attempts of
Henry Sussman to secure possession of
the marriage certificate, and a threat
to take his wife's life after reading
the headlines in the newspaper account
of the Riggs-EUison tragedy.
"Look here Fannie! Have you seen
this? That's just what I am going to
do to you! I am going to shoot you
like a dog!"
acing tone at
meni the home
the presence of the members of the
family, filled them with fear and anxi
ety for the safety of the daughter.
The efforts to secure possession of the^3
marriage certificate were repeated sev
eral times, to the knowledge of Rose
Masinger, and Henry Sussman was
finally supplied with a copy, which he
destroyed with some satisfaction.
Another important circumstance was
the visit of Fannie Sussman to the
Sussman photograph gallery, where she
upbraided Henry for not visiting her
for a week. The two had been married
only a few days.
Surprises from McG-nee.
Two surprises were sprung on the
state today by the defense when Mrs.
Masinger, mother of the victim, was
on the stand. One was the admission
by Mrs. Masinger that her daughter
had been an inmate of the state train
ing or reform school at Red Wing,
from which she was released about two
years before her death. The other was
ah intimation by Attorney MeGhee that
MTS. Masinger had been prosecuted for
terrorizing her neighborhood with a re
volver. Mrs. Masinger stoutly denieffl
the accusation. The state knew noth
ing of -these matters, but Mr. Danl,
the -prosecuting attorney, is uncon
cerned, as, he says, they can have no
bearing whatever on the guilt or inne
cence of Henry Sussman.
The crowd is as big as the court
room will permit. Scores are turned
away from every session. It is a
well-behaved crowd and does not make
itself obnoxious as is frequently the
Sussman is pale and serious. While
not exactly nervous or worried, he is
at least very thoughtful and grows
more serious as the state develops its
case. He is surrounded by a whole
bevy| of women. Beside his two sis
ters-in-law, there are four other women
in daily attendance as members of the
Sussman party. They are understood
to be witnesses for the defense.
Mother a Witness.
Mrs. Adolph Masinger, or Messenger,
as the family is sometimes known, was If
the first witness in the Sussman murder
trial today. She is the mother of the
young woman who married Henry M.
Sussman and for whose death he is now
on trial for his life.
Mrs. Masinger has been one of the
pathetic figures at the trial as she has
sat bowed with grief and heavily veiled
On account of the absence of various
indispensable persons the trial, which
was adjourned until 9:30 this morning,
was not begun until 9:45.
Mrs. Messenger testified that she had
known Henry Sussman for eleven
years. Fannie had gone to school with
Henry at the Sumner school and later
at the Blaine school. She knew noth
ing of the marriage of Fannie and Hen*
ry in March, 1905, until Fannie re
turned from a three-days absence, and
informed her. Henry appeared a week
later and remained three days. ^s
Sussman Left Home.
During the three days at their home
the young people appeared to be on
friendly terms. Then he left without
telling why or where. He was gone
then about a year. Mrs. Masinger had
no information during his absence as
to' his whereabouts. One day Fannie
and her sister Rose went to the home 1
of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Sussman andj
on their return Fannie read a letter
from Henry to his brother Joseph.
Mrs. Masinger was not permitted to
testify as to the contents of the letter

her parents, as she had not personaftv
Henry Sussman came to the Masin
ger home last April and remained there
about seven weeks. It was his custom
to leave the house in the morning and
return in the evening, sometimes very
late and under the influence of liquor,
she said. All this time Fannie was
working every day. He left the house
because Fannie was constantly asking
for money. Two weeks afterward
Henry was arrested for non-support,
the witness being Fannie Sussman and
Mrs. Masinger. He was sentenced to
