politan of St Petersburg yip a sermon

occasion of the religious festival of
the Russian Christmas drew a parallel
between the gospel ahd the peace of

the emperor as follows Your Impe

present war will end soon Above all
may God grant that the Angelic mes
sage of peace sink deeper Into the
hearts of men and that strife may
soon end forever on earth
In a leading editorial today the
Russ while maintaining that the war
must go on says But the fullest
success is today unavailable if the
nation is not united and declares I
that after all the question of peace
or war abroad Is a minor matter
What Russia wants Is peace at home

LARGE PART OF SESSION OF
COMMITTEE DEVOTED TO QUES
TION OF POLITICAL INFLUENCE
OF MORMON CHURCH AND TO
WHAT EXTENT THEY INTER
FERED IN POLITICS
Washington Jan llThe defense
in the Senator Reed Smoot investiga
tion was begun today The room of
the senate committee on privileges
and elections was as crowded as dur
ing the progress of the enquiry into
the rules of the Mormon church
which was conducted by the attorney
for the Protestants against Senator
Smoot retaining his seat Most of thoi
spectators were women Senator
Knox recently appointed a member
of the committee attended the hear
ing today for the first time
William J McConnell of Northern
Idaho was the first witness called
The examination was conducted by
Waldemar Van Cott of Salt Lake
who is associated with A S Worth
ington of Washington as counsel of
Senator Smoot Mr McConnell de
scribed his occupation as former mer
chant half politician and lawyer for
his friends He was a senator of tho
i
51st congress and wag governor of
Idaho from 1893 to 1S9C inclusive
serving two successive terms He is
a member of the Presbyterian church
The witness was asked to describe
the political conditions and took up
the early days when he said he had
lobbler tfefare the legislators when
the first effort was made to disfran
chise the Mormons He declared that
he was prejudiced against Mormons
but that he found that most of the
Gentiles were practicing the science +
which in our country is called poker +
He said he had never known Mormons f
to gamble and drink He followed
this testimony wih a review of his
acquaintance with Mormons during
the agitation against the religion in
Idaho He assisted in bringing about a
the repeal of the test oath of citizen t
ship and afterward went among the
Mormons on a lecture tour He had
observed thepeople he said and their
morals seem of a higfi praiseworthy z
character t
Irrelevant Testimony
Senator Knox asked counsel to in
form him as to what part of the case
the examination of Mr McConnell was
revelant Mr Worthington said ho
was unable to answer that conun
drum but that a great deal of irrel a
evant testimony was admitted for tho
Protestants to which objection had
been made and overruled He said I
the testimony of Mr McConnell was y
In reply to this and particularly to
that of Chas H Jackson chairman of
the Idaho democratic convention who
testified that no candidate for office A
democrat or otherwise could stand
against the Mormon church The wit
ness was asked concerning causes of
the Mormon vote being cast for
Goodin in his canvass for governor
and said he was surprised that any
Mormons had voted the democratic
ticket He gave as one reason that
he had challenged Senator DuBois to
a public debate and received an an
swer declining the invitation on the
ground that he could not afford time
to debate with anyone who was not
a candidate for office in the party
which was defending criminals aa
he believed the Mormons to be Het r
submitted a lithographed reproduc i
tion of Senator DuBoiss letter
Was that trio letter addressed tos
you asked Senator DuBois
It was an answer to my challenge
It was not marked personal
Well v all right the sen
ator started to reply and stopped ab
ruptly dismissing the subject
Senator McComas objected to poUt
ical discussions and when the witness
digressed to say that democrats left t
their party following the election ot
President Cleveland the senator ask
ed the witness to confine himself to
the question of whether the Mormons
interferred In politics Mr McConnell
repeated a number of reasons why the
democratic party was benefitted by
the Mormon church saying that one
of the principal causes was that Sen
ator DuBois called the Mormons crim
