MRSl ELUrOTT SAYS BOTH MEN
AND WOMEN WEAR THEM
EVERY OAYi
(By Publishers*' Tress.)
WASHINGTON. Dee. tC.?The first
witness examined tAis morning when
the Smoot Inquiry was resumed by
the Senate Committee on Priveleges
and Elections was Mrs. Annie Elliott,
an elderly woman who lives in Price.
Utah. She said she was converted to
Mormonism in Denmark and came to
this country in 18T2. Her first husband
followed her here a year and a
hall later, she, in the meantime, working
as a cook for a Mr. Jensen, in
Brigham City, who was a co'msellor
to Brigham Young, who had more than
one wife.
For the past twelve years Mrs. Elliott
has been practicing, as a midwife
and nurse. Severn, times she
went through the Endowment House
acting as a representative of dead women
who were being married for eternity.
For many years .Mr-;. Elliott had
worked with other members of the
Women's Relief Societies in making
the garments in the Endowment House
ceremonies. Each time she toe't part
in the ceremonies the same pre-grant
was followed.
The robes were always worn afterwards
by both male and female as
underga rments.
"Do von s'.mnnst* e-.erv Mormon in
this room cf good standing is vearwr
those undergarmentc'.'" askeu Senator
Overman
"Yes, I know they are." responded
the witness with posit! veness that
caused a laugh.
In response to Senator Forakcr witness
said tliat she hnd never heard of
any of the penalties prescribed bebtg
inflicted on any one. She did no-, fear
any bodily harm to herself when she
should so back to Utali, although, she
expected that she would suffer in her
business because Morrr ons won! t nor
be likely- to continue :o employ her.
Ciiarles K. Jackso,;. of Boise, bemtv
cratic State chairman oi Idaho was
then examined as to political condi
tiens in that State as od'ecte.-i by the
Mormons. He declared -hat whatever
the .Mormon Church wanted in Idaho
was carried out and hat it would be
impossible for either a "eraocmc. or a
Republican to win any point if it were
opposed by the Church. Xot a Mormon
voted the Deruocra'tc ticket in
the last election and the whole influence
of the Churcii was thrown
against the Democratic party and its
leaders.
Eefore witness ha-I concluded his.
statement, the committee adjourned
until morning.

lND OF THE CAPITOL

bat-l?matter has not yet
been decided.
<By Publishers' Press.)
WASHINGTON*. Dec. 16.?It is possible
that the inaugural ball, the great
social event of the ni- ht following
President Roosevelt's inauguration
will be held under tie dome of the
Capitol. Dancing in the rotund", and
in statuary hall, with the bronze and
marble figures of the 'departed great
in their majestic presence, an innovation
which Is seriously contemplated.
Congress has to decide where
the ball shall Ue held. The Senate
prefers the big Pens-on Office building.
which has been the scene of the
inauguration festivities on many previous
occasions, should be used, while,
the house, by a vote of one of its committees.
favors the use of the magnulcent
Congressional Library for the
purpose. Because of the controversy
that has arisen, the '-toitol et-'ding
is being considered as u compromise
proposition. Onegrea.tadvantage.it is
pointed out. of holding the ball under
the great white dome is that the rotunda.
statuary' hall and corridors are
fllpftorlv nrnv!r!t>/l ?-?rh 1tI o
in abundance, and if ik-jre were needed
to produce a specially brilliant illumination
rhey could be bail at a
moment's notice. The expense of the
additional wiring. ct the erection of
coat and hat racks of hags an i Tenners
would be small.
If the idea is adopted, the scores of
committee rooms on the basemen:
floor will be turned into dressing
rooms. There are s:?ecial roo; c-1
the Senate end of the building for
the President and Vice- President and
the grand promenade to be led by
President and Mrs. Huoseveit world
proceed from those vooms along the
tinted corridors to the rotunda. The
many entrances and exits at the Ca;>-lio!
would readily accommodate ike
crowds rhat will attend the function
and at together those who favor the
use of that building bel:eve ir. would
be quickly transformed into a inr.trn'ficaut
ball room .structure. The
question has not yet been decided, and
t !e o'iffn 1 i '.-oil" tVic . ha nrr\rv>?i( ifi'i
will meet considerable optK-stion
from those who thick that dancing
in the halls of Congress troaM he a

from Constantinople are to the effect
that a sensation has tj.e-n caused in
society circles there by vhe announce
ment of the betrothal o[ the Grand
Vizier's daughter to the youngest s?n
of the late Hassan Pasha, the famous
Minister of Marine.
No one knew of the betrothal, not
even the couple themselves, until an
irade issued by Abdul Kamid informed
them that he had arranger. the
marriage. The young people - are
greatly dismayed, esperally the bride
groom, as his fiance is most plain in
appearance.
It is reported the dckan hopes by
the marriage to secure the papers of
Hassan, believing that they contain
unpleasant personal revelations regarding
Abdul. The pair, however,
are guarded by Mol;lc Hanoun Hassan
