WASHINGTON April 2Spccial tele
gram to Tim HERALD The debate on the
Idaho bill today Lad the effect of filling
the galleries with crowds of interested L
spectators who
spectatrs patiently through the
four hours debate occasionally punctuat
tug the remarks of the different speakers
with hearty bursts of applause according
as the latters
sentiments found
lattrs a corres
ponding echo in their own hearts
I the discussion this afternoon the
Democrats bore off the honors The
Republicans put forward none of their frst
class talent and the affirmative side of the
question was argued by such second
rate men as Dorsey of Nebraska
Dubois of Idaho and Peters of
Kansas The Democrats on the other hand
were such brilliant orators as Mansur of
Missouri Chipman of Michigan and
Smith of Arizona No better evidence of
the relative interest felt i the debate
4 could be seen than in the rapid thinning
out of the galleries while tno
gleres hie Republicans
J i were speakjng and tho speediness with
f which they filled up again when these
giants of debate Mansur and Chipman L
took the floor
Air lansur spoKe for an hour rio Be
gan by saying that while he had no sym
pathy nor did be believe that any person
on that side of the House had
any sympathy with the institution
oi bigamy or of polygamy yet we find in
this bill there is a mode of striking at thesee
offenses that is in violation of a the best
of our doctrines and
tenets of liberty a
we have universally understood and en
forced them in all times past to the present
time Mr Mansur then sketched atsome
I length the injustice done to the Mormons
in Idaho in the pending bilL I is
g stated that the reason the Mor
I mons are to be disfranchised is be
cause they vote the Democratic ticket
Continuing he said Just pass across the
line an imaginary one a that into Wy
oiLing territory which you admitted as a
state the other day and while there are I
not so many Mormons there as in Idaho
yet they arc nearly a Republicans and
because of the wellunderstood fact that
every Mormon the re votes the Republican
I I ticket you let them vote and not merely
that but you provided the other
day that their wives should have
the right t vote thus giving to
every Mormon and wife in Wyoming two
votes while in Idaho you dcnj the right t
vole even t Mormon men Let those
things be understood a we go along L t
it be understood that it is not a question of
principle anywhere but is in every instance
1 question of expediency alone ol the Re
publican party Let it be further under
stood from fortyeight hours after the Re
publicans began 10 think that they had
carried the presidential election of 1SSS
the whole political world of the United
States was filled with rumors of the new
programme to be inaugurated by that
party One feature of the programme was
me admission ui the new states 10 I
4 strengthen the party in the Senate It I
was also reported and published that there
J wa to be a revolutionizing of the rules of
parliamentary proceedings that there was
to be the unseating of divers member
on the Democratic side and that
the Republicans were to fortify them
selves in this Congress and pass such bills
as they deemed from their standpoint I
necessary t be passed and if new territories
tories were admitted as stales the Repub
lican party being thus strengthened in
the Senate it would be many ears before I
under any circumstances the legislation
of this Congress could be repealed or done
away with These are the circumstances
that led to the admission
up t of the young
est of our remaining territories certainly
the smallest in population and not the best
equipped in financial ability t maintain
statehood I the Morons Mr Mansur
said were black they would be protected
under the fifteenth amendment to the con
stitution But he added impressively
theyare white and Democrats and so they
are your victims
Quoting Judge Wilson the speaker
showed that out of 3000 Mormon voters in
Idaho not more than 2 X per cent were
bigamists or polygamists and that of the II
total of 25000 Mormons in the territory
bigamists and polygamists were scarcely
onehalf of 1 per cent Mr Mansur next
quoted Judge Carton of the Utah commis
sion Dr Miller the editor of the Omaha
JJwaM Representative Strublc of Iowa
Bayard Taylor Chief Justice Wait and
others to show the thrift industry and
general morality of the Mormon people
fA He then proceeded t ask the questions
Why on account of the few men who are
engaged h the practice of bigamy or I
polygamy whether the number be one
hundred and twentyfive a Mr Wilson
estimates i the whole territory of Idaho
or whether it should be greater should w o
insert the penalty uj uiiranuiiisemeui
upon every male adult of that church
merely because he is a Mormon I And
why snould we refuse him even the poor
pitiful right of purging himself by anoath
in which he shall swear that he does not
thus believe For gentlemen please
observe that in said section 3 which
It Is sought t engraft into
the constitutioil of Idaho there
constitutiOl are quite a
number of provisions whereby a man is
V declared t have the right of trial by jury
and shall not suffer the penaity of disfran
chisement until after his conviction
whereas offenses connected with the Mor
mon church are taken outside of the list of
ordinary offenses and a man cannot purge
himsclf ly his own oath that he doesnot
believe in bigamous or polygamous prac
tices does not countenance them and
does not assist in their perpetration
When that is done he cannot complain i
be be deprived of his privileges if
hi ieges i con
victed That is the universal law in all the
states and it Is correct I have been at the
trouble of collecting the law from a the
i several states and there is not t be found
j In one of the states of the union any differ
ent law than that they must be first
tnt tte frst con
victed of crime before
crio you can degrade a
man or deprive him of the Inestimable
right the right to vote the right to serve
on a jury the right to hold an office In no
stat of the union can such rights be taken
from him without conviction for crime first
being made
I ask each and every gentleman on the I
ther side if you vote to strike down these
men without parting you go homo and the
men in your district ask you how you could
deprive citizens of Idaho of these privileges
without a hearing what would your answer
bo when you know the people universally
in your own state believe in a different
doctrine and decreed that it should become
a part of the fundamental constitution of
each and every one of your states How I
repeat will you answer your own people
when they put that question t oul
Mr Mansur then referred to the recent
creation in the city of Boston of the Com
mittee of One Hundred The commit
mittee said he has issued a pamphlet I
reviewing the last encyclical letter of the
Pope and taking the position that accord
ing to the encyclical no man can be an obe
dient and loyal Catholic and at the same
time be a lawful citizen of the United
States This pamphlet takes the position
that the relation
of Catholics towards our 1
government is similar to that of Mor
mons who have taken the oath of the
endowment house and then declares
No ballot for the man who takes
his politics from the
olIcs Vatican This is a i
remarkable length for such a organization
to go and it shows
extent to which
some leading citizens are aroused over the
attitude of the Catholic authorities towards
the public schools
Mr Mansur quoted at length from the
pamphlet one of the paragraphs being a S
follows We have no hesitation in affirm
ing that the oath of
allegiance to our gov
ernment taken by Romanists and by which
they have obtained the rights of the ballot I
of citizenshin and of office
citizenslip ofce amounts to noth
ing if they are good Romanists and has no
binding obligation where the church of the
pontiff requires it to be disregarded We
do not hesitate to say as a measure for the
nations selfprotection that no man who
confesses allegiance t the pontiff should
be allowed to participate a a citizen in
either holding an office or casting a ballot
The United States supreme court has de
cided that the law of one of our states dis
franchising Mormons is constitutional on
the theory that the man who takes the oath
the Mormons are required to take cannot
be a good citizen Why should not this
principle be applied to those who confess
allegiance to the papal heirarchy P
Continuing the speaker said This is
the address now being issued by a commit
tee of 100 citizens of Boston I think I can L
fairly say to the Catholics that if the Mor
mons are stricken down i this bill is to be
carried into effect in this way thus em
boldening the dominant majority it will
not be long before we shall find certain de
nominations and certain classes of people
in this country inaugurating a crusade
against the Catholic because he is a Cath
olic A vote will be reached on the bill at
3 oclock tomorrow afternoon
The Debate on the Idaho Bill
WAsiHNGTONj April 2 1Baker of New
York called up the bill authorizing the
construction of a bridge and approaches at
New York city across the Hudson river to
regulate commerce in and over such bridge
between the states of Now York and New
Jersey and to establish such bridge as a
military and post road The bill passed
The House proceeded t the considera
tion of the Idaho admission bill and Dor
sey of Nebraska in of the
charge billmade
a speech in its favor The
is only opposi
tion to the admission of Idaho ho Q < i5d
came from the Mormons They protested
against the provision of the constitution
which disfranchised bigamists and
bigamist po
lygamists l and persons who were members
of an association which encouragesbigamy
Mansur criticised the provision of the
constitution disfranchising the Mormons
and said the real reason va that the Mor
mons voted the Democratic ticket
Dubois earnestly advocated the admis
sion of Idaho Criticising the minority re
port he said it proposed that bigamists
and polygamists should vote in Idaho
What right had the members of the minor
ity to impose upon Idaho conditions which
never before had been imposed
iposed upon
state coming into the union There was
he said in Idaho a 7iomo
sad jcjius lomo known as
Jack Mormon who while denounc
whie denounc
ing polygamy and bigamy obeyed
all the behests of the Mormon
priests Were the gentleman from
Illinois Springer to live in Idaho
he would probably be known as a Jack
Mormon He closed his discussion ot the
Mormon question by saying the issue was
fairly joined here Would Congress sustain
this treasonable and lascivious institution
or would it hold up the hands of the brave
pioneers who had gone to Idaho who on I
his proposition had abandoned all party
ties and united in saying We earnestly al
desire statehood but we desire it only for
10 American citizens
Smith of Arizona earnestly denounced I
the action of the committee on territories
in failing to report a bill for the admission
of Arizona His people had been unfairly
treated Arizona had every qualification I
for statehood but the bill for her admis
sion was smothered in committee simply
because she had seen fit committe t a Demo r
crat to this Congress The territory of I
New Mexico with a population greater
than Idaho and 1V
Wyoming combined was
also kept in the background Was it be
cause poor Joseph the delegate had
started wrong in his youth and had become
a Democrat
Chipman while favoring the admission
of territories criticised the
trrtres criicised proposed con
stitution of Idaho as an invasion of sacred
individual and religious rights Polygamy
relgous rIght PolYgamy
was a crime which should not be tolerated
but the constitution closed to the accused l
the courts the only asylums against pas
sion and corruption
Perkins spoKe in favor of the bill and l
pending further debate the matter went
over until tomorrow Adjourned

DES MOINES la April 2The antipro
hibition movement within tho Republican
party culminated in a state conference to
day lUG delegates being present
senting several thousand Republicans
Chairman Collins of Keokuk said he had
been a lifelong prohibitionist and done
all in his power to enforce the law in his
city but had failed
faied Other speeches were
in a similar vein ExGovernor Kirkwood
sent a letter in which among other things
he said Personally I favor local
Personaly option
and high license with stringent regula
tions but some of our prohibition friends
say if such a change is made the Republican
can party will never carry an election in
Iowa again That looks to me very much
like bulldozing and the Republicans never
took kindly to that mode of argument This
policy has been pursued for some years by
extreme prohibitionists in Republican
states that have not adopted prohibition
and now it is threatened here I has not
won in the past and r think itwill not in
the future wi
Hon O B Cummins of Des Moines
presented the report of the committee on
resolutions which was received with great
enthusiasm The resolutions declare un
cwni tMnrr nllpfrinnpA tn the nrinninloc nf thc
Republican party as en ncl tediI the
Chicago platform and continue Wo
recognize the liquor traffic as one which
requires regulation but insist that
the object of such regulation
snould be to minimize imtemperanco
and mitigate its evils Experience in this
a well as in other states has conclusively
shown that general prohibition
genera prohibiton operating
upon a communities without respect to
hubit1 conditions circumstances or de
sires is not adapted either to suppressing
intemperance or promoting morals and
therefore the experiment should be aban
doned and the law so modified that those
communities which desire a change shall
have the right to determine for themselves
whether intoxicating liquors shall be sold
as beverages within their limits We I
are unalterably opposed to
unaltrably t any at
tempt t introduce into the at
tution a doctrine of state prohibi
tion The organic law of the state
ought not t be encumbered with police
regulations of that character Political I
organization has no just right to bring into
its declaration principles or new doctrine
unless it bo upon which substantially all I
members agree A large number of the
Republicans of Iowa are and always have I
been opposed to general prohibition and if
the Republican party adheres to the pres
ent position upon this question it is mani
lest that by such adherence it
t nd to exclude from membership
a those who believe the policy fatal to the
best interest of the state Inasmuch as I
members are not agreed upon the subject
there i obviously but one course which the
party can honorably pursue and it is to
rigorously exclude from the party plat
forms every reference to it leaving each
Republican member of the legislature full
liberty t act with respect toit as his ful
ment may direct The experiment of gen
oral prohibition has been faithfully
tried and in many portions of the
state it has lamentably failed
The Republican party can not
justify further support as a party
measure These members of the party
holding our views cannot with favor to
tVir mcf lvfia Innfrrn lend their nl1 f A ITTITI t
upon many communities all the evils of
unlicensed unrestricted and unregulated
liquor selling For these
lquor selng reasons and in
the interest of
intrest morality business and
social order we ask the general assembly
now in session to so amend the prohibi
tory liquor law as to give to communities
that so desire to act power subject to a
minimum license to be fixed by the legis
lature l t regulate the sale of intoxicating
l iquors through the medium of high license
And we insist on such change in the plat
form of the Republican party tle plat
enable us to stand honestly upon it wi
assist in restoring the party to complete I
Local Option In Iowa
DES MOINES April 2The prohibition
question came up in the lower house of the
egislature this afternoon The Democratic
caucus license bill was considered Rich
man Democrat said in spite of the strin
ency of the laws it was plainly to be seen
that in some local cities the prohibitory
l aw was openly violated while in others it
was observed The Democrats wanted to
remedy this condition of affairs and
in i localities where prohibition is un
popular they wanted the liquor
traffic regulated Accordingly they had
prepared a bill to fit the
bi ft whole case a bill
that would give localities that wanted bi
hibition a chance todo so I provided for
settling the matter of license or no license
by popular vote Licenses will be granted
only by the district court and then only to
proper persons Any one could make a
remonstrance against a license and if the
remonstrance was considered sufficient a
license would be refused the license fee
is fixed at a minimum of 500 lcense that
amount is to go to the county in every
case while the municipality could
exact as much more as it saw fit and one
obtaining a license had to file a 5000 bond
for tho full observance of the laws persons
violating the law could bo punished by fine
punisled fne
and imprisonment and anyone convicted
twice should forfeit all right tQ obtain a license
cense again druggists could keep and
properly use liquors under permits Any
person not holding a license and convicted
of selling liquor could be punished by a fine
of not less than S100 After a vigorous
debate of four hours the matter went over

NEW York April 2Since Jim Corbet
has been east ho has been a lion among th <
sports Some of Sullivans admirers hav
been doing their utmost to
bring about i
meeting between the big fellow and the
Californian A few days ago the question
I whether he would meet Sullivan in lout
I Sulvan a fOU
round contest for a good money considera
tion was put point blank to Corbott Tha
latter said he couldnt give a decided an
swer at the time 3S gve matter almost
wholly rested with the Olympic club in
San Francisco He promised however tc
give an answer by Wednesday Corbetf
was seen last night and said he would b <
glad to put on the gloves with the chant
pion provided his club gave him portals

proper he said tc
enter into an agreement to show
in public with any ono without
consulting the directors Though

considers toe offer made by Sullivans rep
resentatives a very good one He wired
his club last night and exnects an answei
early today Corbett hasnt any doubt
that the
directors will
consent to a match
He says that even after his contest with
Kilrain he hadnt the remotest idea oi
meeting Sullivan but his friends hav
urged him to accept the offer made by Jack
Sullivans representative When
asked if he expected to find Sullivan aj
slow as Kilrain Corbett replied laughingly t
I guess not Never in nty life was j I
more surprised tuna when I stood up be
fore Kilrain When he allowed me to
punch him I thought he was fooling
me I thought I had met a man
with a thorough knowledge of ring move
meats also a man who was quick and
strong I dont doubt for an instant thai
Sullivan is in every way better than ElI
rain and dont think the man lives who can
best him with the gloves However if we
meet you can rest assured Ill do my ut
most to keep my cnn up Mind you I have
not sought this match Wo are to have a
four round contest so I understand it for
gate receipts 63 per cent to the winner
the remaining to the loser I will be de
dared winner if I stay through four
rounds I dont suppose the polico will al
low us to use gloves smaller than three ounce
though it is immaterial to me what size
is used The match must take place within
three weeks as I am to be back on OFar
roll street by the 29th of this month and
resume my occupation of teaching in the
club rooms Ive been away a long time
this year and it wouldnt bo the right
thing to ask the directors to extend my
leave of absence Im in good condition
now and in two weeks can be in as fine
fettle as I ever was
Jack Barnett Sullivans manager wont
talk much now on the subject All he says
officially is that the proposition made on
behalf of Sullivan to Corbett is for both
men to box four rounds The way things
look now the articles of agreement may ba
signed today or tomorrow Then New
Yorkers will see one of the finest exhibi

course wm not wisn to be aownea ana all
who have seen Corbett know he is not made
of the same stock as George Robinson who
faced Sullivan in the Mechanics pavilion
in Frisco a few years ago Besides Con
bett thinks a great deal of Mike Donovans
opinions arid the latter says the young Gal
ifornian is the coming champion The fight
will undoubtedly take place at or near New
Corbett Like Barkis is Willing
NEW YORK April 2Jim Corbett or the
California wonder as ho has been styled
since he defeated Kilrain when spoken to
about a contest with J L Sullivan said
I am willing to meet Sullivan in any bus
mess office he may be pleased to name tc
arrange terms for a four round contest
with gloves within two weeks This is
the only stipulation I must insist
upon My leave of absence has nearly ex
pired and it makes imperative a return ta
my duties at the Olympic Athletic club II
Mr Sullivan will agree to the time stipula
tion I feel sure a match can be arranged
Corbett spoke throughout the interview
with modesty in fact it was a difficult
matter to get him to say a word about a
contest for fear as he said people would
think him boastful

NEW YORK April 2The conference of
the directors of the Players National Ball
league today was harmonious Those
delegates who had in mind an alteration of
the entire schedule
evidently saw no
chance carry their point and the subject
was not broached An important change
was made by amending the opening dates
so that the season of both the National and
Players leagues shall open the same day
April IS This change will have the effect
of making the fight more aggressive and
silence the National league people who
claimed the Players were afraid to clash
with them in dates
