Mr Washington said I today ad
dressing the chairman of tho House terri
tories committee hthe people of Utah as
you are aware are greatly interested in the
Home Rule and statehood bills now before
I your committee Will you be good enough
to tell THE SALT LAKE HERALD how soon
you propose taking action upon them
I The committee said Mr Washington
will take up the Utah bill as soon as they
have disposed of the bills for the admission
of Arizona and Now Mexico both of which
were introduced prior to the Utah meas
ure and therefore in regular order have
priority in their claim for consideration
1 think it is probable wo will be able to
reach the Utah bill this week
I assume thatyour committee will report I
the Home Rule bill favorably I I am cor
rect in this belief please state why you
I prefer the Home Rule to the enabling bill
I have not polled the committee re
I plied Mr Washington on the Question of
I I statehood for Utah as yet I am inclined
to believe that the statehood bill would be
reported favorably by the committee if
they believed it a measure which could
meet the sanction of both the House and
the Senate As we do not believe that
statehood is practicable just now the sen
ment of the committee so far as I have
been able to ascertain it is that we should
give Utah Home Rule under the Caine bill
She certainly is entitled to relief and
Home Rule in the opinion of all is far
preferable to the present condition of af
What will the House do with the Home
Rule bill 1 How soon do you think it will
be > taken up and considered and do you be
have that the discussion of it will run
along party lines or whether i will be
considered in a broad and catholic and
purely nonpartisan spirit
hI think the House Home Rule bill will
pass the House without any very great op
position Some of the Republicans I know
will support it and thus far I have oeen
very little evidence of a disposition to
treat it in any way as a partisan ques
tion HHave
Have you any idea Mr Washington
what the Senate will do with the bill I
I am not prepared to cay what the Sen
ate will do with either the Home Rule or
the statehood bill I can only judge by the
onversations I have had with several
Democratic Senators All of them have
pressed themselves freely as being in
favor of Home Rule and indeed they would
be for statehood i they thought such a
measure could pass In my judgment the
chief opposition in the Senate to both these
measures will come from the Republican
side of the chamber

A Challencojo Mortal Combat
Special to THE HERALD Examiner Dispatch
CHICAGO March HThe Highland asso
ciation of Chicago is torn with dissension
Chief A Gordon Murray is out with chal
lenge to mortal combat The object of his
ire is E Erskme McMillan a prominent fel
low 1 Scotchman who is one of the best
known members of the association
The trouble comes as an echo from the
Burns celebration at the Auditorium at
which pretty lasses danced what strangely
resembled an ungodly ballet much to tho
horror of the good Scotch people outside the
Highland association No sooner had that
gorgeous event passed into history than
there was one about the distribution of the
spoils There began to appear bills for ex
penses of which nothing before had been
heard These bills it is said were gener
ally presented by A Gordon Murray who
brooked no question of his proceedings
Matters reached a climax last evening
when at a meeting of the inner council of
the association held Saturday March o
Mr McMillan openly charged the chief
with having attempted to commit fraud
The result is a foimidable looking docu
ment which Mr McMillan later found on
his desk reading as follows I
I E Erskino McMillan
SIR I challenge you to fight a duel with
pistols at thirty 30 paces within five
miles of Chicago at your earliest conven
ience I have chosen my seconds Choose
P S A copy sent to the press
Mr McMillan declares he does not pro
pose to notice the challenge but has pub
licly denounced Murray as a coward and
trouble is fearod Murray however is i
either far from being a coward has over
looked the fact that the laws of Illinois
make the sending of a challenge a peniten
tiary offense Chief Murray is a descend
ant from the warlike clan of Gordons his
mother having been a niece of tho Duke of
Guidon Their crest is the juniper tree
I is now charitably held in some quarters
that the rich blueblood coursing in tho
chiefs veins or his juniper tree crest or
something of that sort has proved too
much for him to carry around and strained I
his mind

Special to THE HERALD Examiner Dispatch
NEW YORK March 14A cablegram
from Paris announced on Saturday that M
Georges Clemenceau the French deputy
leader of the extreme Left the radical
party in the French chamber and the
most prominent man in France today had
been divorced by his American wife The
same cablegram said that Mme Clemon
han left This
ceau lef for America on Friday
part of the dispatch was untrue for Mme
Clemenceau has been in America for
two weeks past She is stopping with her
old teacher Miss Aiken in Stamford Conn
She was accompanied only by her maid
and did not make herself known to any
body aboard the steamer Many people
recollect when M Clomencoau arrIved in
New York in 1865 an exile Failing to es
tablish a practice in medicine he obtained
a situation as French instructor in Miss I
Aikens school in Stamford Among his I
pupils was Miss Mary E Plummer who
subsequently became his wife They were
married in New York in June 1869 Three
days after the marriage M Clemenceau
started with his young bride to Paris He
has never returned to this country Mme
Clemenceau returned once before this
present tip That was sixteen years ago
at the time her aunt died Mme Clemen
ceau was called the loveliest woman and
the charm was as much in her manner as
in her face and perfect form I was said
that no woman in the capital was as grace
ful as she It was not long before ahe had
Trench gallants at her feet They paid
her the prettiest compliments and I
were amazed to find they made no
impression The purity of her nature
was her shield One woman said of her
once that she never know when a man was
making love to her There is no doubt but
that a great many men tried to make love
to her and that they were absolutely non
plussed She wouldnt do them the honor
of getting offended she didnt seem to
think that it meant anything And yet she
was not a prude They had had experience
with that kind of people She was simply
pure and innocent true to the ideals of her
girlhood which she brought with her to
France Of Mme Clemenceau It may be
said that not a breath of scandal has over
been breathed against her and her husband
was proud of her of the admiration she ox
cited and the dignity with which she car
ried herself
An intensely lealous man he never for
one moment doubted his wifo nor did he
ever doubt her devotion to him Three
children had come to them The eldest
Madeline is alreidy married Theresa the
second daughter is seventeen The young
est child Michele a youth of fifteen
Whed Michele was tie years old a change
came over M Clemencoau He no longer
found in his home all his pleasures There
was for instance the notorious affair with
Mile Roichemburp of the Comedie Fran
caise Boulancer finally supplanted Clem
enceau in the fair actress affections
These reports came to Mme Clem I I
enceaus ears but she paid no at
tention to them She believed in her
husband She only strove to mako
her lovely home more attractive But as
the years rolled on there could be no
doubt that M Clomencoau had suffered
a change during the past few
years how great only two or three
people beside herself know At last the
American woman could stand it no longer
She applied for a divorce The application
was made secretly that it might not injure
her husband and when every thing bad
been done that she could oo Mme
Clemenceau made up her mind to quit
Paris and back to her native
Pars come natve land
and so she came back to her warmest
friend her old school teacher Miss Aikou
in Stamford Not more than a dozen peo
ple outside of those in school know that
sho is in America Yesterday she wouldnt
talk about the divorce she had hoped the
sad story would not become known If a
divorce has been granted she has not been
informed of it

be allowed to tako its course and Deputy
Sheriff Williams who was in charge or the

of revolvers The spectators in the court
room of whom thsae were a number im
mediately began to beat e hasty retreat A
delegation from the mob started toward tho
prisoner and Williams raised his revolver
but before he could shoot he was himself
shot through the heart by one of the mob

heard the evidence was composed of three
foreign residents named A Loprovost
George Allcock and T H Box The for
mer in a communication to the Japan Mail
said he did not personally accept all tho
conclusions reached in tbe erdirt owing
to the fact that the evmenco aa to Hether
ingtons identity was of a flimsy and irreg

aware any verdict could accomplish noth

Algor Poblishes His War Record
DETROIT March 14 General Alger this
morning made public his war record It
includes a great host of official documents
from army officers warmly praising Alger
and recommending him for promotion and
along with them is the report of General
Custer recommending tho dismissal of
Alger from the service The entire record
is full of credit to Alger with the single
exception of the Custer document and the
indorsements thereto In contradiction to
the statement of Custer Algers record
shows that after the battle of Boonevillo
he laid off on account of illness as ho also
did May 22 lSIH In each case however
he had the certificate of his official surgeon
to show that ho was ill I is true that in
his last absence on sick leave Custer did
not respond to the doctors application for
sick leave for Alger but Alger has shown
Custers motive by revealing the latters
attempt to induce Alger to promote Ous
ters brother over the heads of older
officers That Custer did not always re
gard Alger as a flunk is shown by various
recommendations in earlier portions of the
war wherein he praises Alger highly

was not favorably impressed with its re
suits He says I experimented for a
long while and prepared a compound that
never had been used to my knowledge by
any physician in this or any other country

saying I have been over the subject in

MILWAUKEE March 14 General E S
Bragg author of the famous phrase We
love him for the enemies he has made has
been urging Cleveland to make a public
avowal of his position regarding the ap

March 5 he wrote a letter to Cleveland
from Fond du Lao containing the follow

Interests which Democratic failure would
involve seems now to require an open
avowal of your willingness to submit to
I any service to which yeur party and the
people may assign you Believing your
usefulness to the nation may be greater
now than ever in the past to carry to vic
tory the cause of tariff reform and to restore i
the blessings of good government to the
people I ask you to say to the party and
the people that your name may be pre
sented to the National Democratic conven
tion as a candidate for its nomination to
the presidency and that you will accept
the nomination i given and atram under
take the duties of President i the people

March 01S02
Your letter of the 5th received uihavo
thougnt I might continue silent on the sub
ject you present to me I in answering
jour question I might only consider per
sonal desires individual ease and comfort
my response would be prompty made with
out the least reservation or difflculry But
i you are right in supposing the subject is
related to the duty I owe my country and
party a condition exists which makes such
nrivate and personal considerations entirely
irrelevant My experience in the office of
President so impressed me with the
solemnity of the trnst and its awful re
sponsibilities I pannot bring myself to re
gard candidacy for the place as
something to be won by personal
strife and active self assertion
actve asserton
I have also an idea the presidency is pre
eminently the peoples office and I have
I been sincere in constant advocacy of effect
I ive participation in political affairs on the
part of all our citizens consequently I be
lieve the people should be heard in tho
choice of their party candidates and that
they themselves should make the nomina
tions as directly as consistent with open
fair and full party organization methods I
am confident success is still within our
reach but I believe this is a time for
thougtfulness and deliberation not only as
to candidates but concerning party action
upon questions of immense interest to the
patriotic and intelligent voters of the land
who watch for fen assurance of safety as
the price of their confidence and support

our foreign born citizens until the process
of conferring this great boon upon them is
attended with great solemnity and scruti
