Nicholson's Defiance Arouses Senatorial Indignation
y Special to The Tribune.
f "WASHINGTON", Dec. 17. The Senate Committee on Privileges sat thunderstruck today at the Smoot 4
T inquiry -when John Nicholson, the recorder of the sacred books of the STormon Temple, said defiantly that if
J. tho Federal authorities ordored him to do one thing and. the Mormon president, Joseph F. Smith, told him to
j. defy the order, he -would, obey Smith. m.
4- After hearing Secretary Nicholson's testimony tho committee- adjourned and went into conference to die-
4 cuss the defiant attitude of tho witness. It was intimated tonight by a member of tho committee tliat 4
4 summonses might be sent to Utah for tho appearance here of ovory apostle and leading officer of the ITor- 4
i mon church.
, Nicholson liad been recalled, to the witness stand to explain why ho foiled, to bring with him for tho
information of tho Senate, all Tecords of marriages kept by him in the Temple. He had brought but ono .j.
. book. That is a document recording tho marriages in tho Temple, after the form of legal marriages sane- 4.
4 tioned by the State authorities. 4
S By the hammering process it was developed that he had left other books behind; that only tho inof- 4
'' fensive record book was in his possession here and that wilfully and defiantly he had loft the others when he
, knew the Senate subpoena had called for them. )

"Tho National commission has asked for

Therefore, when the Imperial commis

This io tho consensus of, opinion of all

and the contingent wearing endowment

From pome of the witnesses the an
swers are evasive, and the conclusion
reached is that as prevaricators some
Utahns aro entitled to the whole bak
ery. Today a new man appeared in the
committee-room to aid Smoot and his
counsel. This was Congressman French
of Idaho. He was present early and
took a seat between Apostle John Hen

"William Budge, leader of the church in
Idaho. His advent was tho cause of

It demonstrated conclusively that

situation at Zclglor:
"Previous to MaJ. Elliott taking com

occasion guarded a number of minors who
wero coming to work In tho Loiter mlno
from a station at Zelgler to tho mlno. 1
gave verbal orders to MaJ. Elliott not to
uso troops for tho purposo of guarding
minors coming to work In mines from tho
station to the mines, but only to see that
lives nnd property were not Jeopardized.
Slre then Stato troops havo not been
used for this purpose. I do not think that
troops should be used to act as guards for

think they will be."

WASHINGTON, Dec. 17. More !m
portant testimony was brought out to
day In the Investigation of protests
against Smoot than at any time at the 'H
present session of Congress. The wit
nesses were Charles H. Jackson, chair
man of the Democratic State commit
tec In Idaho; John Nicholson, chief re
corder In the Mormon Temple at Salt
Lake; Charles "W. Penrose, editor of Ifl
the Deseret News, and an apostle of VM
the. Mormon church; William Budge, ,
president of the Bear Lake stake in
Idaho, and Apostle John Henry Smith
of Salt Lake. jH
Mr. Penrose was elected an apostle
last July, and the attorneys for Senator
Smoot admitted that the Senator was lH
present and participated in the election lfl
of Penrose. Mr. Penrose testified that
he is a polygamlst and was known to
have been such at the time he was
made an apostle.
The testimony of Mr. Jackson and Mr.
Budge related, to political affairs In
Idaho, the former a prominent citizen
and the latter active In protecting the
Interests of the church. The exarnlna
tion of Apostle John Henry Smith had
not been concluded when the committee
adjourned till 10 o'clock Monday.
OHUitCH IN POLITICS.
Witness Testifies to "Acts of tho
Apostles" in Idaho.
WASHINGTON, Dec 17. When the
Senator Smoot investigation was re-
Burned today, Charles H. Jackson, chair- fl
man of tho Democratic State committee
of Idaho, was again called to the stand. jJ
He Is the witness who testified yester-
day In regard to Mormon Interference fl
in political affairs. Tho examination fl
followed similar lines today.
As an illustration of the local church
issue In the last election, Mr. Jackson
said the vote for Gooding', Republican IH
candidate for Governor, ran behind the
vote for Roosevelt In Gentile counties
and ahead of Roosevelt In Uie Mormon jH
counties, while the vote for Heltfeld,
Democratic candidate for Governor, ran BSJ
ahead of Parker in the Gentile counties HBb
and behind Parker in the Mormon coun- J
The influence of tho Mormons was HHJ
shown, said the witness, by the fact that BSJ
the Democrats and Independents wero HBa
unable to get chairmen of political HBb
meetings held in Mormon counties with- HBa
out tho aid of Mormons.
Visits of Apostles. BAV
On cross-examination, Mr. Jackson
said that Apostles Matthias Cowley and hVJ
John Henry Smith were among those HBb
who went into Idaho and told the peoplo i BVJ
that there had been a revelation that HBa
they should vote the Republican ticket. )
Questioned by Attorney Van Cott, rep- j HBb
resenting Senator Smoot, the witness HBa
Bald he had never heard these apostles IHHJ
declare that there had been such reve- HHJ
latlons; that it has always been taken HBb
for granted there has been a revelation AVJ
when a Mormon apostle appears In BBh
Idaho to direct political affairs. HBh
Cross-examination drew from the wit- HBa
ness that ho know only from general re- hHJ
pute of these affairs and that his state- IHJ
menta, made yostcrday, concerning su
gar legislation and bounties, was based.
on the same Information. He asserted,
howevor, that It Is well known that the
Mormons had asked tho Legislature to
pass the sugar bounty law and wanted
it, for the reason that sugar manufac
ture had been hailed as a Mormon lnstl
tutlon In Idaho, "and the Mormons get
everything they ask for in Idaho, jB
whether It is a Republican or a Demo- HBb
cratic Legislature," ho concluded.
Attorney Van Cott produced a table
showing the election roturns in Idaho In
1901 and attempted to provo that If the jH
Yoto for Governor in tho six Mormon
counties had been thrown out, Gooding, 1
the Republican candidate, would havu ll
received still a plurality of more than
3000. Jackson cqmbatted this statement IH
by calling attention to the fact that In v JM
practically all of the Gentile counties jH
there are Mormon settlements which jH
voted for Mr. Gooding.
,The witness said he did not know
whether Mr. Gooding- Is a Mormon; that
he heard as many people say he is as
say he Is not.
Question of "Jack Mormons."
Mr. Van Cott brought out the fact
that there were about 20,000 Mormon
Votes out of a total of G0.000 votes in
the State. He asked the witness if it
were not true that althouch the Gen
tiles wero In a largo majority, and that
the Democrats put an anti-Mormon
plank La their platform and tho Hen
