Specall to Tho Trlbuno.
EOISE, Ida., Oct. 5. But thlrty-llvo or
forty people attended thc meeting at Pres
ton, Ida., last night, which had been
advertised to bo addressed by Hon. B. F.
Clay of Caldwell, Democratic nominee for
Congress. In his address Mr. Clay care
fully but clearly offered arguments show
ing why the Mormon question should bo
considered. He discussed tho dangor of
church dictation and thc degradation of
polygamy among other things.
Hart Attempts Denial.
When he had concluded Arthur W.
Hart, tho Democratic member of tho
stato central committee from Oneida
county, who was presiding, camo to tho
front of the stage and In a speech of
15 or 20 minutes denied church dictation
and called upon thoso present to say if
they had ever becn coerced.
Ho attempted to Justify thoso who had
entered polygamy before tho manifesto
for at prcflont maintaining such relations
and alao attemptod to belittle tho Demo
cratic stato platform. With President

ditor, his remarks wero heartily applaud

Clay Beplies in Vigorous Mannor.
Mr. Clay's Southern blood caused him
to rise, and, coming to tho front of tho
platform, he said:. . -
"In reply to Mr. Hart's denials I wish
to say that I was told today upon tho
streets by members of tho Mormon church
that church dictation was a serious of
fense hero and had been notorious two
years ago. These church members told
mo that Preston was once a Democratic
stronghold, but was fast going to tho Re
publicans. In reply to my question, to
what do you attribute this change, thoy
answered, to church Influence.
"As for tho attempt of Mr. Hart to Jus
tify thoso practicing polygamy. I havo
to say that a decent regard for tho honor
of thc Mormon church as pledged in tho
mnnlfesto, which you people said was tho
lawof God to them, would havo caused
such men to discontinue this prohibited
rolntlon and should silence tho gentleman
who has Just spoken in his attempt to
Justify his brothers In shame. But when
tho first presidency violates this law and
boasts of it, when four apostles take
new wives, when two others perform
plural marriages, we may expect such at
tempts at Justification of this crime
against humanity and nicalnst the laws
of tho land, and when such attempts as
John Henry Smith made two years ago
to tako from our constitution tho prohi
bition against polygamy it Is high tlmo
that the cltlzons of Idaho wero becom
ing aroused as to a dofonso of their
rights and to say to thc leaders of thc
church, tako your hands off from tho ark

If any one present wants the testimony

In the best Informed quarters tho be- ('H
lief Is expressed that Alexleff's roturn fviiH
does not mean his offacemont, but that, k- H
on thc contrary, the Emperor will tako , 'fll
occasion to bestow upon him unmlstak- i

Lamsdorff Not in Favor. jH
Count Lamsdorff's administration of
Russian affairs was tho subject of crltl- IH

ccesful efforts to secure concessions In
tho matter of tho recognition of thc
rights of noutral commcrco wero obtained IH
against some obstinately hostile and pow- IH

Lamsdorff's enemies freely predict that B
Alexleff will control tho forolgn offices LH
actually. If not nominally. Count Lams- .

best Informed admit that they arc at sea 'H
as to what Is actually Impending and In .H
tho absence of real authoritative lnformn- tB
