Being Revised. SITUATION IS IMPROVING Riply May Ba Forwarded by Wednesday. All Efforts of Russia Being Directed Toward So Framing' Reply That Rupture May Be Avoided. Washington, Jan. 31. Informa- -f tlon received at tho State depart- ment Is to tho effect tlia't the Rus- slnn reply to Japan's last note on -f 4- tho far Eastern question will be made the early pnrt of the present -f week. The tenor of tho prospective communication is not known here. -r--r -r -r Paris, Jan. 31. Another delay has oc curred in framing and forwarding the Russian ansnycr to. the. latest Japanese note, and this will result in further averting the culmination of the crisis until the middle or the latter part of this week. The ofllcial advices, received here from St. Petersburg today, although somewhat negative, gave definite de tails of the status of the note and the programme it was intended to follow. Count Lamsdorff, the Russian Foreign Minister, had expected that the ex changes going on would have permitted the final drafting of the answer so that It could have been presented to the Czar yesterday for his approval, but the expectation was not realized, and, ns a matter of fact, the answer has not yet been finally drafted. It was there fore determined to defer its submis sion to the Czar until next Tuesday or Wednesday. Efforts are still being made to so shape this answer as to prevent a rupture. SITUATION BRIGHTER. Thin new delay ls interpreted as slightly improving the situation, as It Indicates thai Russia is making ex treme efforts to bring the answer with in lipiits acceptable to Japan. Owing to the fact that the Russian answer is not completed, it ls pointed out that the reports concerning its gen eral terms must be taken with allow ance, as the delay indicates? that some of the points which presented' the moat serious diulculties may yet be recon ciled. Throughout the past week the author ities here have been kept fully advised of the general tendencies of Russia, but they have not known whether or not these tendencies would be incorporated in tho answer by which Russia would irrevocably abide. It is understood the Empress' of Rus sia has an affection of the ear which may necessitate an operation. Thin fact is considered as having some far ing upon the time when the answer will be submitted to the Czar for approval. In any event, otflciuls here arc confi dent that definite results will be known next Thursday. JAPAN STILL WAITING FOR RUSSIA'S REPLY London. Feb. 1.

The other Injured were brought part way to Konsas City, leaving for their various destinations, south and north, at different points along the line be tween Miller and here.

Washington, Jan. 31. There -will "bfli an investigation into tho Smoot cas which will bo so sweeping and far reaching as to be rcgrctablo In many respects. ' Not only will tho personal and ohurch-offlcial responsibility of Senator J Smoot for continuous polygamous re- latlons bc inquired Into, but general conditions within Utah as they are. in fluenccd by the predominant churclu This latter will bo as to political and other than religious influences. PERTINENT QUESTION. fl The question that is being asked around the Senate now Is, "Does the lll church attempt to exerclso any other influence than that which relates to spiritual affairs? j fl If it does, is it more than ft rellgiou organization? i Then comes the question as to -wheth- ' er the promises made antecedent to , Statehood have In any respect been vio- t lated? H The Tribune correspondent has been fl asked a dozen times Avlthln twenty-four t hours whether the high church officials, after Statehood, made any effort to con- i vey to the common members the great mapses of the church, the fact that polygamy was to be stopped, and all . past practices forbidden by thecove- Bfl nants of Statehood were to be abnn- ffl doned. I did not know of any such ef- j Iffl forts. ; It is now a fact patent that testimony i Is to be taken from such witnesses as j can be summoned here during the next j j 9fl three months, and then the investig.i- ; j jJ tion is to be postponed for a sub-corn- j mlltce. which will visit Utah during tlu I coming summer. ffS CHURCH WITNESSES. i H Among the tlrst witnesses :o be ex- amined will be President Joseph F. jPfl Smith, his fellow-presidents and all of UH the apostles.

And it Is known now that much j evidence has already been laid before JH the Senate Committee on Privileges and H Elections to the effect that not only H have those who acquired plural wives j IH before the Woodruff manifesto and the , IH introduction of Utah to Statehood sup- j IH ported their plural wives, but they have j continued cohabitation, many of the men having plural wives having chll- jfl dren born to them, but that mam jpfl polygamous marriages have been sol- ! jpH emnlzod. elthr as scalinga or as "celes- tlal marriages."
