cial to The Evening World tays: Rep
resentative-elect E. H. Roberta yester
day- made the following statement .to
The Evening World correspondent: tf
a time comes when it is necessary for
me to defend myself I shall be. there
right cn the spot, and I appreciate that
the members of congress and the Amer
ican people are more liberal, broad-
minded and generous than a few big
oted and contracted preachers of the
Presbyterian church, whose training.
mode of life and trend of thought tend
to unfit them for practical life. Joseph
Smith received a commandment from
the Lord to introduce our order of mar
riage into the church, and on the
strength of that revelation and not by
seasons of anything that is written In
the Jewish scriptures the- Latter Day
Saints practice plural marriage.
Declares Polygamy Not Adultery.
Polygamy is not adultery, for were it
so considered then Abraham, Jacob and
the prophets who practiced it would not
be allowed a heritance in the kingdom
of heavpn; and if polygamy it not adul-
tery then it cannot be classed as a sin
at all. It appears to me that modern

but it ie-better to raise the issue and
have the whole system revised. When
we get down to Cuba I'll wager most of
the men would rather go to a cock fight
or a bull ring than attend services. To
tell the truth, I am beginning to think
there is a heap of balderdash about
what the chaplains do accomplish out
side of meeting the sentiment that calls
for their presence with every body of

Illinois Guiders of the Yonng. i
pringfield. Ills.. Dec. 29. The prin
cipal feature of the State Teachers' as
sociation last evening was an eloquent
address by President James H. Canfleld.
of Ohio state university at Columbup.
The speaker made an eloquent plea for
the common school as bearing the great
burden of perpetuating intelligent citi
zenship. He made a plea for a wide
system of education, unifying thecourse
of study, more expert knowledge on the
part of teachers, bettersuperlntendency,
and above all the right kind of teach
ers. At yesterday morning s session the
subject discussed was "What can the
school do to improve community life?"

BRIGHAM H. ROBERTS.
Christians must either learn to tolerate
polygamy or give up forever the glorN
ous hope of resting in Abraham's
bosom. That which Gcd approves and
so strikingly - approves-i-must be not
only not bad but positively good, pure
Statement of Robert' Case.
Notwithstanding this, however, the
hand of the Gentiles was laid so heavy
upon the people of the Lord that in his
mercy God permitted them to cease
therefrom expediency, and true to the
pledges given by the church no polyga
mous marriages have since been cele
brated by the church. But- not even
the church can take away from a man
the wives it has already given him.
Thfy are his, for -time amd for eternity.
and IitbinH the great, broad-minded
anB just Areerlcari people, will not re-
qtilrr ,a tnii "to dest off; the wives, he
i,Wtti-hom-he ha Hrved nop to
abandon his children." K
Can See No Legal Obstacles.
At the most, Roberts says, his offense
Is unlawful cohabitation, and he re
marked: "I am here and the courrs are
open. If any cne wants to test the
point the way is clear' It has been
urged by some that Roberts, owing to
the operation of the Edmunds-Tucker
act, which disfranchised all polygamists,
is legally barred from taking his seat
in congress. In regard to this Roberts
says he' has had the best legal advice
obtainable, which convincs him that
there are no legal obstacles in the way
of -his taking the seat.
Roberts bays It Is Largely Fake. ;
Salt Iake City. Utah., Dec. 29. Rep
resentative-elect Roberts was shown the
Salt Lake dispatch to an eastern paper
claiming to be an interview with him
on church matters. Roberts said he
had not given the reporter of the paper
nything of the kind for publication.
He said he was called upon for a state
ment and told the repWter that, he had
nothing to say on the subject. In con
versation with the reporter Roberts
said he called attention to the distinc
tion between polygamy and unlawful
cohabitation and said there had been
no polygamous marriages since 1S90.
Further than the substance of this, be
says, he said notning tnat is contained
in the alleged interview.
BOODLE HURT AT CHICAGO.

bribery in city affairs are under in
vestigation by the grand Jury and the

portance will receive attention.

to send out subpoenas for nine alder
men and two ex-aldermen. AJI these
save one appeared during the after
noon. Ail who appeared were heaYd.
