WAsnm.uxroi, Jan. 8.-The senate com
mittee on territories held a meeting to
day for the purpose of taking final action
on the bill for the admission'of Idaho and
Wyoming. 'The committee anticipated
making a favorable report on these bills
today, the President, Bishop Budge, the
head of the Mormon church in Idaho,
appeared and asked that he be given a
hearing in opposition to the Idaho con
stitution; which has a stringent anti
Mormon clause. Accordingly the com
mittee postponed final consideration of
the bill until Monday next, when Bishop
Budge will appear by counsel, and ore
sent an argument against the Idaho bill.
"The position taken by Bishop Budge
only strengthens us. It answers very ef
fectually the objection to the admission
of Idaho which has been put forward,
that the constitution was not strong
enough to crush out Mormonism. Bishop
Budge is a confessed four ply polyga
mist, and haslong been under indictment.
His action today will only Aelay the re
port of the bill fora week I think." The
ouse committee on territories has not
yen taken p the Idaho and Wyoming
ills. Delegate Dubeis thinks the com
mittee will be divided on party lines
when the report is finally made.

In regard to ballot reform Gov. Hill in
his message holds that it is unconstitu- I
tional to require an elector to vote for the
candidate of his choice by marking upon
the exclusively omficial ballot a cross op
posite the name of such candidate, and
prohibiting him from voting in any other
manner. This provision concededly dis
franchises one entire class of voters, to
wit, those who are unable to read and
write. It establishes an educational I
qudalcation not authorized by the consti
tution. In the governor's opinion it is
unconstitutional to require an elector to
vote an exclusively oficial ballot contain
ing the names of all the candidates nom
inated. He states that he has consulted
several able jurists and that all agree
with him on these points, and in con
cluston he says:
"An exclusively official ballot, whether
desirable or yicious, may of course be se
cared by an amendment of the constitu
tion, but until that has been accomplish
ed it is submitted that it cannot be adopt
ed in the state."
The governor pays his respects to those I
who have assailed him as an opponent of
"ballot reform" in the followingpassage: t
"The caure of true reform as nor pro- 1
;oted by loud declaration or by unseem
ly protestations of attachments on the ,
part of its professed friends. Overzeal- ,
onsnese becomes suspicious in tuch
cases and invites the cooclasion that psr
tisan advantage or cheap reputation is the
object sought, rather then sincere anxie- 1
ty for the public weal."
