Senator Smoot returned home from
Washington. D. C, last Saturday, to
Spend the holidays with his family" and
friends. Mr Siuoot expressed himself
as being reasonably certain that he will
retain his seat in the Senate, and yet his
facial expression Indicates that he has
undergone an intense physical atraln.
Whether, by virtue of the Investigation
or through Indisposition, we do not know
When one comes to think seriously of
the enormity of the charges preferred
agaln?t Senator Smoot, and the intensity
of the ln s'ctUlgatlon, one would not won
der at Its physical or mental effect.
The position of United States Senator
Is the highest within the gift of tho
people of a Slate. It is a position of tho
highest honor In our Government To b
a m.-mber of tho Senate is to be one of
the prime movers In the great affairs of
our nation, and to be adjudged ineligible
to hold such position because of conduct
In life not conducive to the best good and
advancement of tho nation. Is Indeed
enough to rack a man's very soul and
body. Why should Senator Smoot not
Worry about so grave 11 matter? By him
and through him Is being rill (ted the
picture of the. Mormon people. By the de

of Utah are to bj held In honor il.l. or
dishonorable repute by the rest of the
world. And who knows hut what the evil
Influences ar sufficiently strong to Induce
an erroneous decision against the Senator
riui the people of his faith? Senator
Smoot knows and the people of Utah
know that he Is eligihln to the high posi

isting conditions it may have been Indis
creet for the State Legislature to have
elected him to the position bui. as we

Won't Allow Disturbers to Interfere
With Church Meetings.
UNION CITY, Ind., Dec. 29 Rev C.
P. Connelly, while preaching before a
large congregation at the Free Metho
dist church, of which he Is pastor,
.'lopped In the middle of the sermon,
walked down the aisle and Invited a
man who was disturbing the meeting
to step outside, where they fought It
out In a fierce fist light.
During the meeting William Nelson
entered In search of his wife, who re
cently joined the church. He found her
near the mourner's bench. He took off
on, of his rubber overshoes, and, draw
ing it to a throwing position, he ex
claimed "There Is another ont? of thoae
fools " Before he could proceed further
he was stopped by a rruin near by.
At this Juncture the preacher took a
hand. Going up to Nelson he said:
"Com nn.l go with me' They Stepped
OUt of the front door and here they took
positions Nelson, who la quite a fight
er, rushed at the preacher a dozen
times, but with rstrtarksble skill the
gospel servant "ducked" and side
stepped In the most approved fashion
Finally, seeing his opening, the preach
er landed a straight shoulder blow
square In the ttoe, and his opKnent
went down and out The preacher then
re-entered the church and calmly fin
ished his sermon.
The congregation did not know what
had happened until the preacher swore
out an affidavit against Nelson oti the
charge of disturbing a public meeting,
and Nelson was arrested and locked up

Dodge Mtx Close
Cinrd by Detectives
Not Allowed to Get Out of Sight
Either Day or Night, but Is
at Liberty.
NEW YORK, Dec. 29. Charles F.
Dodge, Involved ln the ensatlonal
f'.w ge-.J.,rw. , rn-.stery, Is at the
Broadway Central hotel, elbsoly guard
ed by nine United States marshals and
county detectives. In spite of this
Strong guard, it Is asserted that Dodge
la at liberty, but he never moves about
the corridors of the hotel that a big dc--
live does not keep pace with him and
in and about the room In which he
Sleeps are these guards.
Although District Attorney Jerome
declares that Dodge ban made no con
feselon, It Is stated as u fact that Dodge
has told absolutely everything, and not
B man w ho Is Implicated In the scandal
has been spared. The- lawyers who all
along have been mentioned ln the case,
act ordlng to report are getting in deep
er and deeper
Asked regarding Dodge being kept
under guard, tho District Attorney said
he was not a prisoner. He refused to
say that Dodge slept handcuffed to a
detective, ay has been reported.
No formal charges have been made to
the grievance committee of tho Rnr nn.
soclation up to this time, but when the
Morse-Dodge scandal developed District
Attorney Jerome reported the facts to
the association and It will take action
against, th.- lawyers suspected of being
in th. conspiracy, If indictments of the
criminal charge are found, looking to
their disbarment.
I Is said that Charles' W. Morse, who
It was said, was in Paris, is back In
Xe. York The whereabouts of his
wife is still a mystery.
Dodge In his recital starts with hio
marriage to rifmence Cowles ln San
Francisco March 16, 1S77. From the
flrsl their marriage life was unhappy,
h. saw he. aus. 01 his inability to grat
ify her expensive tastes, and after ten
or eleven years of bickering they parted
by mutual consent.
In 1S97 when he was managing an
Atlanta. Ga.. hotel, she visited him and
proposed that he secure a divorce, she
agreeing to bear all the expense and
even to furnish the witnesses. He con
senited and she went -heac: with her
pluns, with the resuU that he was ad
vlsed that she was Krai. ted a decree ln
January, 1S98. He continues.
"I never heard anything more about
the divorce until the latter part of 1903,
when I was sent for to come to New
York, my expenses being paid. I was
then informed that as another man had
been served with the summons In the
divorce case which my wife brought
against me. I would be justified In ma
king an affidavit to thin effect, upon
which ihe ... ' r f divorce granted to
my iife might be set aside and that if
I would do this I would be provided
with plenty of money from a rich and
powerful man, so that I might live in
peace and comfort.
"I agreed to do as I was asked and as
far as money is concerned have not
wanted for anything since, but all the
luxury and ease In which I have In
dulge at some one's else expense
have not begun to recompense me for
the horrors I have endured In being
constantly, night and day, under the es
pionage of other men who have never
permitted me to get out of their sight if
they could help it."

The Hon. Fred J Kiesel spoko ln favor
of asking the Legislature for an addition
al appropriation besides the 110,000 now at
the disposal of the commission He
thought it was an excellent opportunliv
for l"tah to make a good showing and ad
vertise her resources It would be better
h' said, than the St Louis Fair had been
because of tho size of tho latter In a
very elaborate exhibition no State could
make a showing thnt would stand out.
Although l'tah had done splendidly at St.
Louis, more than could nave been ex
pected with the comparatively small ap
propriation th? Slate could 'afford, the
fair at Portland would give n better
chance to outshine tho Other States
It was decided that all the exhibits of
L'tah at Portland should be concentrated;
that Instead of scutterlnK the various
things In different buildings. It would be
better to have them all In a bunch.
Forgiving Pence Incident.
The disposition to resent the Lafe Pence
Incident seems to bo dying out Some
of th members of the commission
thought that It would even react to tho
advantage ef Utah. People ln Portland
seem lo be trying- to make amends it la
thought that because of tho Incident
l'tah will be able to got concessions that
could not otherwise be obtained.
