Boston, June it.—Governor Guild
made public today a telegram re
ceived by him from President Roose
velt in which the president, after
pointing out that he had been re
quested to interfere with the execution
of Chas. L. Tucker, declares that in
his Judgment Governor Guild's decis
ion not to interfere with carrying out
the sentence on Tucker seemed to be
entirely sound and commanded his
heslrty sympathy. ...
Tucker Is under-' sentence of death
for the murder of Mabel Page at Wes

Tucker awoke In his cell at Charles
town prison thlq. morning with the
realization that his last day on earth
liad arrived. He said he slept well and
later ate a hearty breakfast. He will

Odessa, June 11.—Since the com
mencement of the repatriation of the
.^troops which took part in the war
with Japan, 152,000 men, including
Russian prisoners from Japan, have
heen landed here and distributed
throughout the interior of the coun
try. The most stringent precautions
were observed during the whole period
in order to prevent the slightest in
tercourse between the returning troops1
and the townspeople In consequence
of fears of mutinous demonstrations,
as It was undeniable that the troops
coming home were largely disaffected.
The spirit of disaffection was even
more noticeable among the officers
than in the men. The former frank
ly expressed the opinion that if par
liament can hold its own until spring
sit will be able to count on an army
,rto support its demands.

voring his nomination for president of
the United States in 1908. "This Is
the first announcement of this news
to me," Bryan continued. "I have
been oil of the main caravan route for
some time, and have been absorbed
in what I have been seeing and do
ing." Bryan' had been moving so
rapidly since he left Vienna on Fri

did hot reach him until today. As to
tiie possibility of nomination he had
little to say, declaring It 1b too early
to speak of that question.

London, June 11.—After a voyage
which both declared to be the most
pleasant in their experience, Mr. and
Mrs. Nicholas Longworth reached Lon
don early yesterday afternoon, having
Journeyed from Southampton, where
they debarked from the American line
steamer St Louis, in a beautifully ap
pointed royal carriage attached to the
American line special on the London
& Southwestern railway. The weather
was Ideal and the country traversed
by the train on the short trip to Lon
don was looking its best, so that their
first impression of England, where
they will spend the opening fortnight
of their European outing, was most
favorable. Only a short stop was made
In Southampton. The mayor of South
ampton and the American consul there,
Mr. Swalm, were the first to greet the
travelers on British soil.
On arriving in London Mr. and Mrs.
Longworth were met by Ambassador
Reid and the members of the embassy
staff, Mrs. and Miss Reid, Mrs. and
Miss Carter, wife and daughter of the
secretary of the American embassy,
and Mrs. Gibbons, wife of the naval
attache, while at. the entrance to the
station several hundred Americans liv
ing in London had gathered to wel
come the couple. Mr. and Mrs. Long
worth will be the guests of the Ameri
can ambassador and his wife at Dor
chester houSe while in London.
The afternoon was spent in resting.
In' the evening there was a family
dinner, attended by the members of
the embassy staff. Tomorrow Mr. and
Mrs. Longworth will be given an op
portunity to see London, no engage
ments having been made for the day.
In the evening they will visit the

whether King Edward will entertain

her father, is not accepting any but
court engagements, and therefore will
not accompany King Edward to the

Senator Hansbrough Would
Appropriate $2,500 for Its
Special te The Evealng Times.
Washington, D. C., June 11.—Senator
Hansbrough has introduced an amend
ment which he will urge when the
Sundry Civil Appropriation bill reaches
the senate providing an appropriation
of $2,500 for the management, improve
ment and protection of Sully Hill
Park, North Dakota.
This reservation containing about
960 acres, was set aside by executive
proclamation in June, 1902, and is lo
cated on the south shore of Devils
Lake, having about two miles of shore
line, with its western boundary one
mile east of the Port Totten Indian
school. No appropriation having been
made for the care of this reservation,
Charles L. Davis in charge of the
Devils Lake Indian agency, was desig
as acting superintendent thereof
and required to exercise the necessary
control and superlvision over the same
until other provision could be made for
the protection of the park. The tract
is well wooded and has an ample sup
ply of water and many rugged hills,
among which, on the western boundary
lies what Is known as Sully's Hill. In
the southwestern part ot the park is a
small body of water known as-Sweet
Water lake, west of which the surface
is level and the soil good.
There are a number of prehistoric
mounds on the hilly portion of the
park which have been explored, and
portions of human skeletons, stone,
copper and Ivory trinkets taken there
Sully's Hill and Sweet Water late
are much frequented by the people of
North Dakota during July and August
for rest and recreation, as the state
of North Dakota has very few wooded
tracts for such purposes.
The appropriation which Senator
Hansbrough seeks to secure will be
expended in fencing the exposed
boundaries of the reservation, the con
struction, of a dock on the,lake shore
to, accommodate visitors coming by
boat, the placing of the roads in proper
condition, the construction of neces
sary bridges, the walling up of springs,
and the clearing away of the under
growth in many places with a view to
making suitable camping grounds.
While at play in one of the numerous
public public play grounds of this city,
Donald, a ten year son ot Senator Mc
Cumber, had a fall which resulted In
the breaking of his left arm. The ac
cident occurred early In the week, bat

The Majority and Minority Re
ports of the Senate Commit
tees in the Celebrated Smoot
Case Submitted.
It Apparently All Depends Upon the
Point of View Taken by His
Friends and Enemies.
Washington, June 11.—'The majority
report of the senate committee on
privileges and elections in the Smoot
case was submitted today signed by
Burrows, Dolliver, Dubois, Pettus,
Bailey, Overman and Frazier, says:
Smoot Is one of self perpetuating body
of men known as first presidency and
twelve apostles of the Mormon church,
that these men claim divine authority
to control members of the church in
temporal as well as spiritual things
that this authority is and has been for
several years past exercised by the
first president and apostles to en
courage polygamous matters in Utah
and elsewhere which is contrary to
the laws of Utah and of the land that
the first president and apoBtles do
now control the political affairs of
Utah by a union of church and state
contrary to the constitution of the
United States and that Reed Smoot
comes here not as an accredited rep
resentative of Utah but as chief hier
archy which controls the church and
usurps functions of the state of Utah.
The report names a dozen apostles,
former apostles and prominent Mor
mons who according to the testimony
have taken plural wives since the
manifesto of 1890 and who "are now.
and have been for years living in open
and notorious and shameless cohabi
In the judgment of the committee
Smoot is no more entitled to a seat
in the United States senate than if he
was cohabiting polygamously with
plurality of wives. Finally relating to
oath of vengeance says:
"It is difficult to see how one could
discharge the obligation of a senator
to perform his duty to promote the
welfare of the people and at the same
time be calling down the vengeance
of heaven on this nation because of the
killing of the founders of the church
sixty years ago."
The minority report, signed by For
aker, Beveridge, Dillingham, Hopkins
and Knox, says Smoot's private char
acter is irreproachable, and further
says: "So far as his belief and mem
bership in the Mormon church is con
cerned Smoot is within his rights un
der the guaranty of religious freedom
of the constitution of the United
As to endowment oath, the minority
says, the testimony is utterly unrelia
ble because of the disreputable and
untrustworthy character of the wit
nesses and it has not been established
that Smoot ever took such obligation.
As to his responsibility for poly
gamous cohabitation the report says
Smoot has never at any time, and
particularly since the manifesto of
1S90, countenanced or encouraged
plural marriages.
Concluding the minority says: "W'e
are of thef opinion there is no just
ground for expelling Senator Smoot or
for finding him disqualified to hold the
seat he occupies because he, in com
mon with all people of his state, has
not made war on but acquiesced in
the condition for which he had no
original responsibility."
The majority and minority reports
of the senate committee in the Smoot
case was presented in the senate to
day. Bailey said it was his opinion
that Smoot couldn't be deprived of his
seat except by resolution of expul
sion. Burrows said he would call the
matter up at the earliest moment pos
sible. Smoot was present and when
Bailey made his statement smiled

Auoclated Preu to The Evealag Tlmaa
Boston, Mass., June 11.—The dedi
cation Sunday of a magnificent new
addition to the Mother Church of the
Christian Science denomination, in
Boston, is an event of the highest
signifiance in the history of this re
ligious body. The interest of all
Christian Scientists Is centered on
Boston and thousands from all parts
of the world are thronging the historic
old city. The regular communion of
the Christian Science church always
brings a multitude of its adherents to
Boston, but the dedication of the new
structure this year has made the at
tendance unusually large.
Built as the result of a spontaneous
recognition of Mrs, Eddy's life work
and of the imperative demands of the
marvelous growth of the movement,
expressing the liberality of thousands
of Christian Scientists and embodying
the best in architectural design and
modern construction, this new build
ing is logically the central feature of
this year's gathering, although Chris
tian Scientists say that they lay the
greater stress upon the spiritual
awakening which has inspired the
generous liberality expressed.
Fnctx About the New Church.

Discovery ot Chrlntlaa Scleace.
Christian Science was discovered by.
Rev. Mary Baker G. Eddy in 1866. Re
ferring thereto in her book entitled
Retrospection and Introspection, she
declares "During twenty years prior

cause and in the latter part of 1866
I gained the scientific certainty that
all causation was Mind, and every
