The Smoot Case Brings Out a Creal
Deal of Sensational Evidence
MORMONS STILL POLYGAMISTS
As the Investigation Advances lt
Becomes /lore a^d More Evident
That the Saints Are Pretty Tough
In the progress nf the investigation
before the Senate Committee to test
The right of Sen?tor-elect Reed Smoot
to take his seat in the United States
Senate, much testimony of a highly
sensational character has been brought
cut. The fact that polygamy is still an
organic part of the doctrine and prac
tice of the Mormon religion has been
prominent all through the investiga
tion. Prominent witnesses, high up in
the councils of the church, have testi
fied with more or less relish under the
fire ol questions put them, that plural
marriages are still the rule of the faith,
and that many if not most of the offi
cials of Mormonism are living ia direct
and flagrant violation of the laws of
the United States.
After having Joseph H.- Smith, presi
dent of the Mormon church, on the
stand for nearly five hours before the
senate committee on privileges and
elections, which is investigating tha
right of Reed Smoot to sit as a senator,
both the prosecution and the defense
announced that they were through
with him and another witness waa
called. This was Mrs. Clara Mabel Ken
nedy, who told some secrets of the
Mormon church which if not broken
down, will pro^e as important as the
statements by Resident Smith that he
and other officials have been persist
ently cohabiting with plural wives in
violation of the law.
Mr. Tayler asked for a detailed
schedule of Mr. Smith's children born
since 1890, and over the protest of Mr.
Smith Chairman Burrows directed that
the question be answered.
Mr. Smith gave a list of children by
the wives in the order in which he mar
ried them. The list is as follows:
By Julina-Edith and Rachael.
By Sarah-Aseneth and Jaennetta.
By Edna-Martha and one child
By Alice-Fielding, Jesse and An
By Mary-Silas, Agnes. James and
He said he did not know the age of
thc last named.
Chairman Burrows inquired: "How
many children have you now?"
"Forty-two,* 'was the .answer. "21
boys and 21 girls, and I am proud of
every one of them."
Senator Overman sai ci that he had a
pamphlet saying that Jesus Christ was
a polygamist. Turning to Mr. Smith
he asked: "Is that what your church
"No, sir," was the response. "What
we teach ls that Jesus Christ was de
scended through a long line of polyga
mists through David and down to
Abraham." With that Mr. Smith left
the stand, having been the only wit
ness in the five days the hearing had
The prosecution then called to the
stand Mrs. Clara Mabel Kennedy of
Sevier county, Utah, who testified to
having been married into a plural
marriage since the manifesto of 1890.
She said the ceremony had been pei1
formed by an apostle of the Mormon
church. Mrs. Kennedy said she was
born in Albany, 27 years ago, of kjr
mon parents. The family moved to
Diaz, Mexico, when she was about four
years old, where she lived until she
was 17 j'ecrs old. when she was mar
ried to James Francis Johnson, who
already had one wile, Mrs. Kennedy
said she met the first wife and they
had "a slight interview" about join
ing into the family as second wife. The
first wife gave her consent to the ar
According to arrangement Mr. and
Mrs. Johnson and baby and the witness
drove from Diaz to Jaurez, Mex., to be
married. They remained there two
weeks before the ceremony was per
"Where were you married? asked
"At the home of A. C. McDonald, the
counselor to the first president of the
state" (meaning the Mormon state),
said the witness.
"May 19, 1S9G."
"Who married you?'*
"Do you mean Brigham Young, the
The witness was asked by Mr. Tayler
if she had seen Apostle Young before
and Sf\e said she had in Diaz and
Jaure3 two or three times and that she
could not be mistaken. She could not
identify a picture of Young, however.
Mrs. Kennedy said she lived with
Mr. Johnson about five years, part of
the time in the same house with the
first wife and part of the time away
from Mr. and Mrs. Johnson. She said
she has two children by Mr. Johnson,
one of which is now living. She sep
arated from Mr. Johnson at the end of
five years and about a year after that
i?married Mr. Kennedy.
"Why did you separate from your
husband?" Senator Foraker asked.
"Well, I could not stand the pressure
any longer," she replied.
"What do. you mean by 'could not
stand thc pressure?' " asked Chairman
"Were you not treated right?"
"No, sir, I was not," she said.
"Would you have stayed if you had
been treated right? It was not be
cause you were opposed to Mormon
ism?" was asked.
"I am a Mormon still," she said.
"Though I am not a very good one."
"The prosecution called to the stand
Mrs. Emma Matthews, of Marysville,
Utah, mother of Mrs. Clara Mabel
Kennedy. St?e has been a plural wife,
but is not now.
Mrs. Matthews said that she had had
no objection to her daughter becoming
Johnson's plural wife. She remember
ed well the marriage of Johnson to her
daughter, and fixed the date definitely
ai May, 1S94. It was brought out that
Apostle Teasdale had advised her
against allowing her daughter to be
come a plural wife, on the ground that
Il was against the law of the,Church.
Mr. Merrill was temporarily recalled
and questioned by Senator Dubois, who
asked: "Mr. Merrill, do you still uphold
the doctrine of polygamy?"
"No, sir," was the reply.
"But you practice it?"
Francis M. Lyman, an apostle of the
Mormon Chu.-ch and the prospective
successor of Mr. Smith as president of
the church, wa^ the next witness.
"Arc you a polygamist?" Mr. Taylor
asked, and the witness replied frankly,
"Yes." He said that he had had three
wives and that of them two are still
living. Mr. Lyman said that he had
been one of the signers of the prayer
for amnesty, pledging himself to all
that it contained.
Mr. Taylor read portions of the pray
er. "Did you," he asked, "Interpret
that to mean that you would abstain
from polygamous cohabitation?"
"I interpreted lt to mean that I
should do all that was right."
. "Djd-you think it would be right to
abstain from polygamous cohabita
This was not answered directly at the
tithe. Mr. Lyman finally admitted he
knew tbK in living In polygamy he jwae
disobeying both the law of the land and
the rule of his Church. He also said
iu reply to one of these questions that
he was not only now living in polyg
amous cohabitation, but that he ex
pected to do so to the last.
Mr. Hear at last took the witness in
'hand Und brought out a succinct state
ment from him, which was of a char
acter to interest all present.
"Referring to the rule of which you
have spoken," Mr. Hoar said, "you un
derstand the rule or law of tho Church
to be the lav/ of God. do you not?"
Mr. Lyman replied that such was his
"Then you are living and Intend to
live in violation of the law of God and
"I fully intend," said Mr. Lyman,
"to be true to the law of my country,
to my God and to my obligations and
convenants with my wives, and I have
never done a thing that my conscience
did not approve."

RATIONS FOR FOWLS.
One of the most successful farmer-;
poultrymen in the country says that he
allows his laying hens to balance their
own rations. That is. he furnishes
them with thc different kinds of
grains, cut bones, grit and animal food
in thc proper quantities, each sepa
rated from tho other and permits them
to eat as they will. In this way, it
is claimed, each fowl's instinct will
teach it lo eat of the grain that its
There may be good objections to
this plan, but it is advocated herc as
a compromise for those who are not
inclined to go to the trouble of bal
ancing thc lotions for Ibo hens. Tho
main point in this method is uot to
give Hie hens, in thc several ingre
dients composing thc rations, more,
in all. than they will likely eat clean.
Thc plan is well worth trying, for it
can do no harm if care is taken not to
permit the birds to overfeed.-Indian
WET WEATHER POULTRY.
It would seem that ducklings would
thrive in wet weather, hut they don't.
Even the water fowls thrive belter if
there is sonic sunshine. It's a great
deal more so with chicks. Health and
growth do not go partners with damp,
sour crops and continuous cloudy, cool
wea flier. When we conic to think of
it, sunshine is necessary to all lite,
whether animal or vegetable. There is
something about sunshine that is very
different from other kinds of heat. I
have noticed this in poultry raising for
a long time, live stock men notice it.
thc florists in the green houses perhaps
more fully appreciate it.
While it is impossible to stop (he
rain or make thc sunshine, it is not
impossible to clean ont thu coop??, to
hoist thom up out of thc mud and kill
off Ibo parasites, put in some dry
chaff or something of that nature and
give the chicks some chance for their
existence. Wc can go still further and
thin out the bunches of them, piled
up here and there in corners. Every
thing goes to show that thc trouble or
bad luck attending raising chicks is
mostly with ourselves. More care
would mean greater success.-M. M.
.Tohnson, in Commercial Poultry.
The accompanying cut explains it

Better have too few than too many.

When Will Coal Give Out?
It appears that then: Is coal in the

there is at the former limit. And it
further seems probable to expect that

further extended by Hie more ceo-,

A Remarkable Confession.
Seldom' has a more remarkablo con
fession been made in public by a rep
resentative man that was uttered by
Slr Norman Lockyer. President of the
British Association for the Advance
ment of Science, which met on Sep
tember 9, at Southport, England. Re
calling Captain .Mali au's demonstra
tion of the influence ol' sea power on
history, Sir Norman pointed out that
Englishmen were keenly alive to the
Importance of their navy, and that
they had but little to fear from a hos
tile combination of maritime states.
The danger that confronted them, he
said, lay Jn a different quarter, and
arose from a grave though corrigible
deficiency. Englishmen were threat
ened, he believed, with eventual ouster
from the markets of the world, be
cause of the superior energy displayed
by their commercial rivals in the ap
plication of intellect to industry. What
England stood in Increasing need of,
by comparison with Germany and the
United States, was not sea power, but
brain power. There was, of course, no
lack of native ability in Great Brit
ain, but it was not applied with the
requisite sagacity and vigor through
scientific channels to the develop
ment of manufactures and trade. The
educational system of Great Britain is
relatively antiquated and inadequate,
because the facilities provided for
scientific research are not commensu
rate with the nation's necessities. This
Sir Norman proceeded to prove by a
citation of significant statistics. He
reminded his countrymen that in
Great Britain there were but eleven
universities which had to compete
with twenty-two universities in Ger
many, and with no fewer than one
hundred and thirty-four state-sup- j
ported or privately endowed universi
ties of the United States. Attention
was directed to the fact that the Prus
sian government gives to a single in
strument of the higher education, the
University of Berlin, more money than
the British government allows to all
the universities and university-colleges
in England. Ireland, Scotland and
Wales put together. - Harper's
