IN THE SENATE
Senator Hopkins Makes First
Speech for Utah Mormon,
Who Has Been Protested,
DECLARES THAT HE
IS WELL QUALIFIED
Stiong Plea for Seating Smoot
Is Made by Illinois Senator
Is Backed Up by Senator
Beveridge Cites Precedent
By Associated Press.
WASHINGTON', January 11. The
first speech in defense of the right of
Heed Smoot of Utah to a seat in the
senate was delivered today by Senator
Hopkins of Illinois. Hopkins took the
jKisition that senators are not federal
oflioers to the extent thataitho senate
could pass upon their qualifications and
eligibility or impeach tliiim for high
. runes or inisdemeanors. If a senator
is to be punished, it must lie done by
state or federal courts. Only federal
uflicers. he maintained, arc impeachable,
and impeachment must be for acts com
mitted as such federal ofiieors.
Century Old Precedent
A prei-edent cited was the unsuccess
fnl effort to impeach Senator Blount of
Tennessee, who was charged with trea
sonable correspondence" with a foreign
nation more than a hundred years ago.
The conclusion arrived at then, Hopkins
.said, has never been reversed and that
was, that the senate bad no right to
try the case, as Blount was not an offi
cer of the United States.
Referring direetly to Smoot 'a case, be
continued: "It is conceded by the
chiarman of the committee on privileges
and elections that Smoot possesses all
the qualifications spoken of in the con
la Not a Polygaralst
"That he is not a polygamist, that
lie iteer married plural wives and never
practiced polygamy, that- he is a man,
in personal relations as son, as hus
band, as father and citizen, above, re
proach; that in all of the relations of
citizenship he has lived a singuarly
pure and upright life.
Why, then," he asked, "should he
bo expelled from this body, disgraced,
dishonored for life, a stigma placed up
on his children, his life wrecked and
the happiness of his wife destroyed J
"Ho is a Christian gentleman and his
religious belief has taken him into the
church of Jesus Purist of the Latter
Day Saints, commonly called the
Mormon church.' "
Mr Hopkins said that ho felt sure
that those representing the protestants
would not contend that there was any
apostolu oath which had heenjaken by
Smoot whie.i would prevent him from
discharging his duties as a senator.
A Relic of Barbarism
Hopkins sympathized, ho said, with
the denunciation of polygamy made by
Burrows in a recent spt-ech. "It was,"
he said, "a relic of barbarous ages nnd
a destroyer of the ideal American home
and he had no sympathy with tho .prac
tice. "If the members of any Christian
church were to be charged with all the
crimes that have been committed in its
name, where is the C'uristiau gentleman
in tins body who would bo safe in his
An extended history of the Mormon
church was given by Hopkins, who con
eluded that the testimony taken before
the committee showed a radical change
for the better and that Smoot represent
ed a higher and better Mormonism.
Supported by Beveridge
Beveridge supplemented Hopkins'
speech by a statement that the country
should be informed that Sinoot was not
or never had been a polygamist.
Senator Fulton asked Hopkins wheth
er the Mormon church had recognized
the polygamous marriages which the ev
idence shows have taken place since the
manifesto of 1890.
Senator Hopkins said tho church has
not recognized thoso marriages and
that under the laws of tho Mormon
church today such marriages are not
pprmitted and that the parties contract
ing them knew they were violating both
the civil law and tho church 'law and
for that reason all of these marriages
had been consummated in Canada.
Senator Dubois of Idaho wanted to
know where and when Smoot had over
placed himself on record as condemn
ing polygamy. Hopkins replied that
Smoot had twenty or forty times before
the committee stated his position and
that his whole life and every fiber of
his being was a protest against poly
gamy. STEAMSHIP PONCE

The action of the board of supervisors

that affect, and it was finally agreed
that four inonibera of the former council
who had been tho most activu in secur

LOS ANGELES, Cab, January 11.
The practice of smuggling Chinese into
tho United States from Mexico, using
Santa Ana as one station and tho Pa
cific Electric company as tho means of
distribution, is believed to havo been
discovered by the arrest this morning
of five Chinese charged with being ille
gally iu tho country, and Leu Quong
Shue, a well known local Chinese mer
chant, as an accessory.
Tho arrest was made as tho Chinamen
were leaving a Santa Ana car at the

The great growth of Globo during the

Phoenix Not Having Any Luck
with Her Octopi Ice Trust
Not a Trust
The trust -litigation has so far set
tled nothing nnd two of the cases have
been disposed of, having gone off on
technicalities, says the Phoenix Repub
lican. It is likely that the same sub
jects will b,e prosenUd to the next Unit
ed States grand jury for ro-investiga-tion.
The case of the United Stntes
against the Peoples' Ice& Fuel com
pany was beforo tho court- yesterday.
An effort was made to show that a com
bination had been formed in the organ
ization ol tho City Ice Delivery com
pany and it was pretty well established
that there was a combination of the
interests of tho People's company and
S. D. Lount ic Son.
Tho indictment,' however, had sought
to show that W. B. Lount, the manager
of the company, nnd who had been per
sonally indicted, hnd entered into the
combination in his managerial capacity.
The evidence disclosed, however, that ho
was only ono of tho three members of
tho firm of S. D. Lount & Son. Messrs.
Bullnrd and Chalmers accordingly mov
ed the court to instruct the jury to
acquit on tho ground of a variance be
tween the allegation in tho indictment
and tho proof. Tho motion was allowed.
Among the witnesses were Paul Briz
zard, a former member of the Arctic Ice
company, and also a member of the
original Ico Dohvery; President V. M.
Avis of the People's company, Charles
Dunlap of the People's ico company;
J. Howard Wood of tho Tempo Tee com
pany and Porry Williams of Maricopa.
Mr. Avis on his first appcaranco on
the stand testified that W. B. Lount
was tho person with whom tho contract
for the forming of the City Ico com
pany was made. Later, he corrected
that statement, having refreshed his
memory, and said that the agreement
was signed by S. D. Lount & Son, by
W. B. Lount as manager. Of the, fact
of the agreement there was loft no
doubt, though tho case did not proceed
to the determination of tho criminnl
character of it.
There were several tilts between
United States Attornoy Alexander and
Mr. Bullard. At ono jtoint the United
States attorney mentioned that ho was
annoyed by Mr. Bullard walking back
and forth behind him muttering because
a ruling had gone against him.
Mr. Wood of Tonipe recited an un
derstanding which had beon reached
with Mr. Lount and Mr. Avis with ref
erence to tho sale of ico in Maricopa.
Mr. Wood had been given a copy of a
letter which had been written elthor
by Mr. Lount or Mr. Avis to a costomor
at Maricopa requesting him iu tho fu
ture to buy his ico nt Tempo. Tho tes
timony of Mr. Williams was a little
more explicit on this point. He had n
letter, though ho had destroyed it, but
remembered the substance of it, inform
ing him that nn agreement had beon
reached by tho ice-men of tho valley
that no factor5' should ship ico past tho
factory of any other company.
After the conclusion of tho testimony
of Mr. Williams tho motion to. direct
came up and was allowed. The casos

in the first resolution, stating that he
has admitted all alleged connections
with Piorco, Kirby and the Tennessee
Coal company and successfully resisted
tho charges made.
Bailey's resolution suggests that tho

members who shall pass upon tho Bai-ley-Watcrs-Pierce

tho possibility of international compli

Officials here are inclined to concur

Paris Paper Says It Is Proof"
That Vatican Is Determined
to Continue War Govern-,
ment Will Answer Enqylical;
By Associated Press.
ROME, January 11. Osservatoro Ro
mano, the organ of the Vatican, today"
published a text of an encyclical' ad- y
dressed by tho pope to cardinals, bish--
ops, clergy and the French people. The'
pontiff said that the chief object in ad
dressing the faithful in France was to
comfort them in their sufferings, which
ho felt deeply. There was, however,
grent consolation in the fact that the
Catholics of France stand united. Tho
French government's declaration was
not only ngainst the Christian faith, but
against all spiritual ideals. The French
Catholics must bo prepared for all sorts
of trials, but were certain of final vic
tory. Contrary to statements on the
subject, the church did not desiro a fe-.
ligious war involving violent persecu
tions. Being a missionary of peace and
carrying out a mission of loyalty, the
church did not willingly express herself
to war and persecutions, as sho did not
desire to sco her children suffering. Re
garding the ecclesiastical properties', tho
encyclical said Rome had not abandoned
them. Continuing, tho pope said: "We
have been accused of prejudice and in
consistency. It has been said we re
fused to approve in France what wo al
ready approve in Germany. This re
proach is unjust and unfounded. Tho"
German law explicitly recognizes tho
Catholic hierarchy, while the French
"Although her divine founder '.was
born poor in a stable and died poor on
a cross, and although the church knows
poverty from the cradle, tho property
sho was possessed of nevertheless 'be
longed to her and no one has the right
to doprivo her of it.
"Tho statement that tho government
is disposed to abandon tho property" of
the church is adding derision to 'spolia
tion. From the point of view of exer
cise of religion, the new law has organ
ized anarchy. It installs a regime of
uncertainty and arbitrariness. Tho new
law aggravates the law separating the
church and the state. Wo can-only -condemn
it with precision and without am
biguity. mt ,

PARIS, January 11. Tho pbpe'rnn-
reserved condemnation of tho new sepa- -ration
law, whilp expected, can only re
sult in further embittering tho contest
between tho church and state, as the
French bishops who are about to assem
ble must follow the orders of Rome, re
gardless of individual ideas. The Temps
considers tho encyclical as proof., that
tho Vatican is determined to continue
tho war. It is expected that the 'gov
ernment will soon reply to the encyclical
either in the form of a communique or
by a declaration in .parliament.
