"Lord Methuen reports casualties Dec. 6, on patrol duty, as follows: 'Missing, Lientenant Tristram and four men of the Twelfth Lancers; wounded, four men." Some interesting light was thrown on the position of affairs along the western frontier by a dispatch issued by a Boer agency in Berlin. The dispatch said: "Uommanaam txins uoos lorue in ueur Jacobsdal, between Modder river and Biet river. General Cronje is, still on the north bank of Modder river, his rear being protected by fortified positions at Spytfontein. The hills between Modder river and Spytfontein and those between Jacobsdal and Riet river are occupied by Boers. Commandant Delarey's torce is stationed between Gras Pan and Honey Nest kloof." If this Berlin dispatch be correct and it is especially significant when gunged in connection with General For-estier-Walker's advices to the war office there must be some 15,000 Boers around Lord Methuen, who is believed to have 11,000 men.

"We ask you to read the following statement irorn a weii-Known citizen because he sufferd from one of the worst kind of cases of backache and kidney disorders, and was cured by Morrow's Kid-ne-oids.

I doctored with different physicians and took all kinds of kidney cures but it seemed that there was no sure cure for me.

TOOK WIVES, DEFH3IG THE LAYT. (.dnltery a Crime la Utah When Roberts Was Horn Cullom Anti-Polygamy .let Passed, When He Was Six Years Old. Charges Against Mormons. Washington, Dec. 0. An answer to Mr. Bngham Roberts' address to the American people was issued by a dele gation renresenting the Gentile cio nient in Utah, who ar9 here to oppose Mr. Roberts. The answer said in part: Whenever a "prima facio" eae 1? made acainst a member's citizenship by show lug that under a conviction for felony apainst the laws of the United States he Is disfranchised and furthor that by reason of his present maintenance of tho status of a polypamist lie Is again suffer ing from civil disability under tho Ed munds anti-polygamy act, such a mem ber refusing even to deny the charm?. 6houia be excluded. Nor is this danger ous, for it is not likely, as Mr. Roberts seems to assume, that an entire minority or all representatives of a large state aro coming to congress carrying such a bur- iv" t . uluer states, men who Haunt their violations of the laws of decency in the face of the public are sent to the peni tentiary. r Mr. Roberts' contention that no evi dence of his guilt can be recched except a judicial record of his conviction in Utah as a matter of law is erroneous and, as a , v; , l practice, aangerous, oecauso Mr. Roberts and his all-powerful and in spired priesthood can pro ent such convic tion if they consider it worth while. If at the time of the passage of the en abling net Mr. Roberts was, as ho beenis in his appeal to admit, disfranchised by act of congress, and therefore not a full citizen of tho United State?, as by the con stitution he must be, to become a member of congress, then he is still in that same condition, becmse the constitution of Utah could not restore him to federal citi zenship and the enabling act did not do it. The enabling act of Utah, unliko that of somo other states, required citizenship of the United States as a qualification for voting and did not confer that citizenship upon those then not such citizens. Mr. Roberts says he has not been con victed since statehood. It docs not follow that he is innocent. He is now a fugitive from justice in Salt Lake county, on a charge of unlawful cohabitation and in D.ims county, Utah, where resides one of his polygamous wives with her illegiti mate twins, born Aug. 11, 1697, a charge of adultery (a felony under the laws of Utah) has been for two months pigeon holed by the Mormon prosecuting attor ney. Mr. Roberts, in his attempts to belittle his crimes, insists that he is only charged with a misdemeanor. Ho knows better. He knows that he has been, under oath and before the proper prosecuting of ficers, charged with the felony of adultery as well as the misdemeanor of unlawful cohabitation. He asserts that in 18d9 ho pleaded guilty to amlsdemeanor only, and also says that if ho were guilty of the same acts in the District of Columbia "even flagrantly so" that as a member of con gress he could not be arrested therefor, Because it isonly,a misdemeanor. Here again Mr. Roberts states what is not true, and ho ought to know it. Unlawful co habitation under the-Edmunds act, under which he pleaded 'guilty, was a felony, as also is adultery, with which Mr. Rob erts is charged in Davis county, Utah. In the District of Columbia, both unlawful cohabitation and adultery are felonies, as denned by the Utahstatutes, and it is only in Utah that the former is a misdemeanor. Manv sentimental nonnlr. arc hairier inU. led by Mr. Roberts' very ingenious sugges tion irom which somo pcopio infer that he took his polygamous wives when it was lawful to do so. This is a mistake. Adul tery was a crime in Utah when Mr. Rob erts was born, and at the time of tho pas sage of the Cullom anti-polygamy act, Mr, Boberts wss only (5 years old. His plea for 'syhipathy, therefore, amounts only to this, that ho should be allowed to continue his criminal prac tices notwithstanding he took his polyga mous wives in defiance of law. We de mand that he should support his families. but also demand that he shall cease tho begetting of further Illegitimate offspring and this is our only bono of contention, the only thing demanded which ho re fuses to yield. Ex-Congressman W. H. King was and is a Mormon, and no claim of ineligibility was ever made against him. We point to this fact as showing that wo oppose Mr. Roberts not upon the ground of any reli gious opinions entertained by him, but Eccauso of his criminal practices. Neither is this a matter of religious or political persecution or prejudice. Tho under signed include men of different churches and men who belong to no church. Mr. Roberts denies and we assert that the conmact between Utah and tho other states has been violated. That compact was evidenced by many public acts. Hero are given different cvidances of the fact that the Mormon church and Mor mon pcopio agreed to stop polygamous practices. The statement then said in part: As evidence that this compact has been broken wo point to tho following: First That in Utah 1.00Q illegitimate children have been born to polygamous wives slnto statehood. Second That about 2,000 polygamous households now exist in Utah and that the attempt to secure a punishment of these offenders is denounced by the major ity, as wo believo, of Utah's citizens. Third That the circumstantial evi dence unmistakably points to tho exist ence of now wives in polygamous house holds, tho most conspicuous examples of which aro the cases of Apostles Abraham H. Cannon, John W. Taylor and Apostle Tcusdale, in at least tho ftrst of which the church organ of the dominant church re fuses to deny tho marriage and tho now polygamous wife is employed as teacher III .1 UUUKll liUUWJJMJ'. Fourth That tho T2ry men who inter preted tho manifesto of 18W)to prohibit unlawful cohabitation with prior acquired wives now publicly justify its continu ance. Fifth That most of tho samo men who in a petition for amnesty pledged their sa cred honor for the obedience ot tho law by their people aro now by example and pre cept encouraged to commission of tho crime of unlawful cohabitation. Sixth As a further ovidenco of this bad faith, we call attention to the fact that men holding high church ollice havo plead c-ulltv to the ornno of unlawful cohabita tion before tho state courts without hav ing their church standing affected, oven in some eases having thoir fines paid by sympathetic friends. Seventh All this is by necessary impli cation indorsed by, a majority of Utah's peoplo In the election of lirigliam H. Rob erts, who, during his campaign for elec tion, wiis publicly charged with being a violator of tho laws, as evidencod by his 11 legitimate progeny, and in spito of these undented charges ho was elected by an overwhelming majority. That Mr. Roberts himself understood thnt compact to mean tho diocuntlnu&nce of unlawful cohabitation wo point to his rcgistrntion oath of 1SD3, iu whxh ho tvrorc It to lie his intention to oboy tho law prohibiting unlawful colmbltation. The statement was signed by tho fol lowing; T. C. lllff, Salt Lake; G. W.. Martin, Mantl, Utah; C. M. Owen, Salt Lake; G. M. Coombs, Urighom City, Utah, and A. T. Schroedor, Salt Like. The committee which is to inquire into tho status of Mr. Roberts of Utah held a protracted scssiou behiud closed doors. During tho tarly hours of tho meeting Mr. Roberts was present uud made a statement o3 to his general wishes in connection with tho inquiry. He euid ho was specially desirous ot hav ing tho committee first go into his prima facio. right to a seat, afterwords faking up the general merits of the sub iect. He said he favored oppn sessions. He indicated also that ho desired to pre sent testimony relative to the manner in which the charges againtt him were prepared. Mr. Roberts tnen retired. A brief session followed a. recess and tfren an adjournment was taken until today. 2Co announcement was made except that Chairman Taylor (Ohio) said the worK was progressing satisfactorily and smoothly. It is understood that some question exists as to whether Roberts shall be treated as a contesting member or be asked to plead, us in a trial, and the committee will probably hear him further before reaching a conclusion. CUKEENCx BILL MONDAY. Uocse Adopted Order For Considera tion Xo Vote In Week Afterward. Washington, Dec. 9. The house adopted a special order for the consider ation of tho currency bill, beginning next Monday. The general debate will be continued until Friday, on Saturday amendments may be offered under the five minute rale and on the following Monday the vote will be taken. The Democrats, Populists and Silverites pre sented a solid front against the adoption of the resolution, and every Republican voted for it. Mr. Richardson, leader of the mi nority, taunted some of the majority leaders with their change of trout in coming out flat footedly for the gold standard, but Mr. Grosvenor and Mr. Cannon good naturedly replied that they had learned something with advancing years. The former said the Democratic party was the only living demonstration of the survival of the great organization which refused to learn anything. LENTZ WANTS AN INVESTIGATION. Introduced a Resolution to Xook Into Idaho Mining Trouble. Washington, Dec. 9. Representa tive Lentz (O.) introduced a joint reso lution reciting the charges growing out nf thn rn-RRpnnn nf TTnitpd States troons under Brigadier General Merriam at the ' centers of mining troubles iu Idaho aud asKiug tor an investigation Dy a special committee of nine members, to be ap pointed by the speaker. The resolution said that it was a mat ter of generil information that United States troops were sent to Idaho in defi ance of and contrary to the federal con stitution, at the individual request of the governor, when no riot or insurrec tion existed, and without consulting the legislature or the local sheriff. The arrests, it was charged, included many members of the miners' union and tho local sheriff. It was asserted that many men were imprisoned in a "bull pen, a place unfit for human habitation." Allegation was made that one prisoner oecame insane irom tne treatment, and escaping was shot as he jumped into a river. In another case, it was charged, a dying prisoner was denied spiritual consolation. Specific acts of cruelty are given. The resolution also recited that the wives and families of miners were in-, suited by soldiers, and it was alleged' that responsibility for the various actions recited rested with the mining coniua nies of tho localities. OUR BLACK PLATE THE BEST." Assertion aiade by an Independent Tin pluto Manufacturer. Washington, Dec. 9. Nattum A. Taylor of the N. & G. Taylor company, independent' tinplate manufacturers of Philadelphia, was before the industrial commission. He said that the black plate manufactured in the United States was immensely superior to that made abroad and also that some improve ments in the tinning process had been made in the United States. He, however, considered a tariff nec essary to prevent foreign makers from at any time dumping any surplus of plate they mizht have on hand and thus demoralizing the market, He said the "American Tinplate company had manifested no disposition to take ad vantage of its opportunity to increase prices. Democrats Considered Reorganization. Washington. Dec. 9. The Demo cratic caucus committee of tho senate' considered the reorganization of the senate committees.
