"ADMITS MORMON APOSTLES DEFY LAW AGAINST POLYGAMY President Smith Declares Thpt He Has "Taken His Chances Rath er Than Disgrace Himself and Degrade His Family by Aban doning His Wives and the Children They Have Borne nim'' Inside Workings of the Church. SM00T HAD TO PROCURE CONSENT TO RUN FOR THE SENATE. 11111m SENATOR vV'ashlngton, March 3. The attorneys for the Protestants In the Smoot Investi gation said they intended to prove that the. defendant Is associated with a hier archy which practices polygamy nnd con nives at violations of tho law, and that his very vote as a Senator of the United States is subject to the wish and com mand or the Mormon Church. President Joseph F. Smith confessed that ha himself had continued to cohabit with his plural family since tho manifesto of 1E30, and that he realized fully that ho was violating State laws. President Smith also testified that Reed Smoot had to get the consent of his associate apostles In tho church before he could become a can didate for Senator. The confession of President Smith was the sensation of the proceedings to-Sday before the Senate Committee on Privileges and Elections. Mr.- Smith said that tho manifesto of 1S30 had left him and others with plural families In the unfortunate rltuation of being compelled to defy ttra law or desert their families. For himself he had preferred to "take chances with' the law" rather than to disgrace himself and degrade his family by abandoning his wives and the children they had borne him. He admitted hat he had had children by all of his Ave wives since the manifesto, and paid he had acknowledged them open y. without Interference or disturbance from the people of Utah, whom he charac terized as liberal and broad-minded. The defense will take the witnezs to morrow. TCSTIMOSY TOUCHING POLYGAMY ALLOWED. When the committee was called to or der seven Senators were present. Chair man Burrows gave the ruling on the ques tions asked of President Joseph F. Smith relating to the polygamous cohabitation of George F. Teasdale, a Mormon apostle. Objections to such questioning had been made by the defense. The committee ruled that the testimony bearing upon plural marriages of ruiy members of the twelve apostles, of which Mr. Smoot is one. Is competent so far as It relates to such polygamous cohabitation since September 3S, 150. the date of President Smith's man ifesto withdrawing the order of the church commanding plural marriages. Mr. Tayler asked a number of questions which brought out a statement from Mr. Smith regarding his own position under tho laws covering polygamy. He acknowl edged that he had violated them continu ously since the manifesto of 18S0, and Is ready now and always had been ready to face the laws of the land. Mr. Tayler asked: "Is cohabitation with a plural wife contrary to the rules of the church?" Mr. Smith asked and Received pSrmls slon to make a statement and then an swer the question In his way. He said: SMITH ADSIIT9 VIOLATION OF LAW. "In regard to the status of polygamy at the time of the manifesto. I want to say that after, the hearing before the Master of Chancery I understood that we should abstain from relations with our plural families, and that rule was observed up to the time the enabling-nct went into effect admitting Utah as a State. Under that act the only prohibition was that plural marriages should ceaso.. Nothing was said aDout cohahitatlon with our wives." "With the wives you had married previ ous to the manifesto, you mean," inter ruped Mr. Hoar. "That Is what I mean," said Mr. Smith. "I understood that plural marriages were to cease. And ever slnco the manifesto up to the present time there has never been a plural marriage In the church per formed In accordance with its teachings nor with the connivance of the church," and he added, with greater emphasis: "I know whereof I speak." Then, In answer to the question whether That Is Salt Rheum or Eczema, one o! the outward manifestations of scrofala. It comes In itching, burning, oozing, dry ing, and scaling patches, on tie face, bead, hands, legs or body. It cannot be cured 6y outward applica tions, the blood must be rid of Jhe Im purity to which It Is dne. ' Hood'sSarsaparllla Has cored the most persistent and difficult cases. Accept no substitute tor Hood'BJ BO mhxtltnu acta Ufca It, REED SMOOT. polygamous cohabitation was regarded by tho church as contrary to the law, he answered: "It was." Continuing, he said: "This was the case and Is the case now, but I was placed In this position," said Mr. Smith. "I had a family i. plural family. If you please. I married my first wife morn than thirty eight years ago and my last wife moro than twenty years ago. By these wives I havo had children, and I have preferred to take my own chances with tho law and suffer any consequences the law might visit upon me, rather than abandon these children and their mothers. ACKlVOWLEDGnS WIVES AND CULLDKEX. "I have continued to cohabit vtlth them since the "manifesto of 1S30 rind they hav borne mo1 children slnco that date. I was fully aware of what I was doing. I knew I was amenable to the law, but, as I say, I praf Ted to face that situation rather than to desert them. I have not cohab ited with these wives openly or flaunted the fact, but I have acknowledged these wives and children as my family. The people of Utah have regarded the situa tion as an existing fact. These people as a rule are broad minded and liberal In their views and have condoned the of fenseIf offenso it Is rather than Inter fere with my situation as they found It. It has been known what I have been do ing. 1 nave not seen interfered with, nor disturbed In any way. If I had been, I was there to answer the charges. I was willing to face them and submit to the penalty, whatever It might be." Mr. Smith paused for a moment, but as Mr. Tayler prepared to ask another question he again proceeded with his state ment. "You must draw a distinction between unlawful cohabitation and plural mar riages' he said. "The State law in regard to tho" latter has been complied with. No marriages have been performed with the sanction, approval, consent, knowledge or connivance of tho church or Its ofilcials. But the other law Is tho one I have pre sumed to disregard, and which, as I have said. I am ready to face rather than disgrace myself or degrade my family by turning them off." Mr. Tayler resumed his questioning. "You say there is a State law forbid ding polygamous cohabitation and you have been continuing to violate it In utter disregard of the consequences?" he asked. "I think I have," was the answer. "YOU hava caused Vnnr nlirral -nrfirAa tn bear you new children In violation of the law you knew to exist?" "That Is correct," said Mr. Smith. DUTY OF TOLYGAMY TO PROVIDE FOR WIVES. Mr. Dubois then asked Mr. Smith if It was not understood by those in authority that It was tho duty of the polygamist to continue to provide for and support his plural family after the manifesto of 1890. Mr. Smith answered that It was "gener ally so understood." Mr. Burrows asked Mr. Smith if he had married any wives between the first and the last that he 'had mentioned during his statement to the committee. "I have," said Mr. Smith. "How many?" "Three." "Then you have Ave wlve3 now?" said Mr. Burrows. "That Is correct," was the response. "How many children have you had slnco the manifesto of 1S9Q?" "Eleven, since 1890," said Mr. Smith. "Each of my five wives have born me chlldren." ATTENDED DEDICATION WITH PLURAL WIFE. "I rather think," he added, "that one of them has. nad three children; I could tell you a little later." He said In reply to Mr. Tayler that he had attended the dedication exercises at the St. Louis World's Fair and had been accompanied by a plural wife, Edna Smith by name. Senator Smoot had been with them on that occasion, when they had been photo graphed in a group. In reply to a. question by Senator"smoot, he said: "Each of my families has a home of Its own in Salt Lake City, and comparatively near to each other. Since the manifesto my custom has been to live with my flrst wife at her home, but I have visited my other families." He said, also, replyins to Mr. Tayler, that he had been present at the- reception to President Roosevelt at Senator Kearns's residence in. Salt Lake City, and that he had had one of hls.plural wires with him. "but that she wa3 not the one whom he took to St. Louis. jLaSutA about Charles TeasdaJt, Bai 0j the twelve apostles. Mr. Smith said he knew nothing of his present domestic rela tions. He thought, however, that until two or three years ago Mr. Teasdale had had two wives. Mr, Smith also was asked about Apostle John W. Taylor, and he said he Is reputed to be a polygamist. "I could not say of my own knowledge." "Have yoj the slightest doubt of it?" "I haven't much doubt of it." Mr. Smith said that Apostles Merrill and Hcbcr J. Grant are reputed to be polyga mists. He had seen tv.o women who were pointed out as Mr. Grant's wives. John Henry Smith is, the witness also said, the husband of two wives. Mr. Smith was asked about other apos tles. Mr. Cowley is, he said, a reputed polygamist. Roger Clauson Is not. Ho was especially questioned concerning F. M. Lyman, president of tho apostles and In tho lino of succession to himself. Mr. Smith said that Mr. Lyman, being pres ent, should answer for himself, but the committee Insisted, and lie replied that Mr. Lyman was reputed to have two wives. DO NOT TEACH TOI.YGASIY IN FOREIGN' LANDS. "When your deacons are sent out and make converts in other lands, do they not present the rightfulness of polygamy as a religious virtue?" This question was put by Senator Hoar. "They never discuss polygamy," Mr. Smith said, "unless compelled to do so to meet attacks. They do not advocate polygamy In any way. Indeed, the elders are instructed not to advocate plural mar riages .it nil: It Is .1 thine; of the past." Mr. Tajler asked how many wives Mr. Smith bad in ISM. "Five." said Mr. Smith. He was ques tioned In regard to a wife named Levira. who was divorced from him and died many years before 1SD0. Mr. Smith protested that tho questions were very embarrassing and trying to him. "I dislike," he said, "to announce my private nnd personal affairs. I do It reluctantly and solely because I am re quired to do so by this honorable com mittee. This matter Is going before the public, and I do not want it to appear that I am a 'spotter' or an 'informer.' If there Is anything I despise, it is an in famous 'Epotter' and an 'informer.' " FOLI.ntv i DICTATES OF MORSION CHURCH. Inquiry having been made by several members of the committee as to what Mr. Tayler expected to prove by certain questioning, the latter said: "I expect to prove that Mr. Smoot could not by any possibility put himself up against his associates In his actions." "Not even in hi3 vote as a United States Senator?" asked Mr. Beveridge. "No; not even in his vote as a Senator," responded Mr. Tayler. Mr. Tayler said Mr. Smoot would be bound to follow the direction of the church, not only In spiritual affairs, but also in temporal things, because, under the definitions of the church, it Is Im possible to distinguish between the two. Ho would have to obey or resign his apostleshlp. In answer to questions concerning revelations, Mr. Smith reiterated former statements that such revelations were ac cepted or rejected at will; that there is no restraint on any member except his or her voluntary wish. He said he did not al ways obey the revelations from God. "One can obey or disobey with impunity," ho added. "Then that Is the kind of God you be lieve In?" said Mr. Tayler. "Yes, that Is the kind of a God I be lieve in," declared Mr. Smith, with em phasis. SMOOT GOT CONSENT TO RUN FOR SENATOR. A rule of the church was quoted In re gard to the release from duties of certain members of the apostles or others in high positions in order to perform other duties, and Mr. Tayler asked: "Was It necessary for Mr. Smoot to get consent to run, for Senator?" "He had to get the consent of his asso ciate apostles and the first presidency," said Mr. Smith, "in order to go before the Legislature. He obtained that con sent." An effort was made to show that Mr. Smoot could not act of his free will, but Mr. Smith declared the consent amounted to nothing more than a release from his duties in the church- In case he was elected. The Moses Thatcher Incident was taken up and Mr. Smith said he had remained for many years an apostle of the church, though not In harmony with his associ ates. He remained In that position until finally removed by tho apostles. When asked the reasons for the differences of opinion between Mr. Thatcher and the other apostles, Mr. Smith said there were various causes. "Was it because he desired to become a candidate for United States Senator?" "For United States Senator or some thing of that kind," answered the witness. Largo Tobacco Shipment. The first of this month a train con sisting of thirty carloads of "Duke's Mixture" was started from Durham. N. C. for Chicago. The entire lot of tobacco was bought by Sprague, Warner & Co., and Is scheduled to arrive in Chicago next Wednesday.

This shipment contained 2.ESO.00O single packages of to bacco and would furnish each male adult In Ute United States with dve smokes. This brand of tobacco.
