STATEHOOD QUESTION NO MORMONISM OR POLYGAMY FOR NEW STATES. Bill Will be Reported Tomorrow. With Minor Changes it Will be the Same as Hamilton Bill President May Surrender. Washington, Jan. 27.

The committee would grant a hear ing fo- that purpose. Otherwise, tbu bill will probably bo reportoil next week, tho majority re commending its passage. The meas ure reported will differ from the Hamilton bill only In minor features. It Is now admitted, even by tho friends of tho moasurc, that it will havo moro effoctlvo'opppsltlon In tho senate than it encountorcd In tho house.
