SMOOT'S CASE CONSIDERED. Senate Discusses Question of Utah Man's Eligibility. Washington, Nov. 13.Immediately upon assembling the senate plunged into a discussion of the question of the eligibility of Mr. Reed Smoot of Utah to a seat in the senate. The debate grew out of the remarks made Wednesday by Mr. Hoar, saying that petitions bearing upon Mr. Smoot's case are as much out of place as would similar petitions to the supreme court of the United States be in the interest of any case beL re that tribunal. Mr. Dubois (Ida.) took issue with Mr. Hoar's remarks and presented his views in connection with the petitions for Mr. Smoot's expulsion which were presented by himself. Mr. Hale (Me.) took the position that the question of Mr. Smoot's eligi bility had been improperly raised at this time. He referred briefly to the moral aspects of the Smoot case and said that grave as they are they are not more important than "the intru sion of a great religious hierarchy like the Mormon church into the political affairs of the country." He suggested to the senate the importance of not prejudging the case. ONE DEAD, THREE INJURED. Highwaymen Hurl Victims From Fast Moving Train.
