Smith , president of the Mormon church , Friday afternoon ap peared In the district court before Judge Ritchie at Salt Lake City , plead ed guilty to a charge of unlawful co habitation , and a fine of $300 was im posed.

According to his faith and the law of the church they were eternai in duration. He continued : "In the tacit general understanding that was had in 1890 , and the years subsequent thereto , regarding what were classed as the old cases of cohab itation , I have appreciated the magna nimity of the American people in not enforcing a policy that in their minds was unnecessarily harsh , but which assigned the settlement of this difficult problem to the onward progress of time. $4,000,000 IS LEFT OVER.

The supreme court of the United States Is to be asked to pass upon the question whether a railroad com pany can issue transportation in ex change for advertising in newspapers. A test is to be made in Illinois , or rather an opportunity given to the in terstate commerce commission to have the courts pass upon their ruling that nothing but money can be lawfully received or accepted in payment foi transportation. Shortly after the new rate law went into effect the question came before the commission , and that body decided that only money could be accepted. The justice of this ruling was not seen by the legal department of the Monon railroad , and George Kretzinger , the general counsel , and E. C. Field , the general solicitor , wrote to the inter state commerce commission and gave their construction of the law , backed by decisions of the courts. They said they had carefully con sidered the law before the promuga- tion of the rule , and under their con struction of the law had entered into contract in good faith with publishers for the publication of time cards , etc. , and for the payment of such services in transportation at the rate fixed by the Monon's duly published tariff which in every instance was the exact equivalent of the agreed price for publication. It is not believed , the attorneys said , that the commission intended either to restrict the right of contract or pre scribe the particular manner of per forming contracts , but , on the con trary , that the sole purpose of the commission is to scrutinnize contracts and to see that they are not merely devices or subterfuges to evade the law. law.The The interstate commerce commis sion did not reply to the letter of Mr. Kretzinger and Mr. Field , which was dated Oct. 1 , and President McDoel , of the Monon road , has issued orders to the passenger department to con tinue making contracts with publish ers of newspapers and to issue trans portation in payment for equivalent advertising. NEGROES WOULDN'T TESTIFY.

Gen. Garlington declares that every means of getting evidence concerning the shooting was exhausted. All the men of the three companies were talked with individ ually , and all , he says , evaded ques tions and even refused to discuss the events at Brownsville which were known to have enraged the negroes before the riot. fc. "The secretive nature of the race where crimes are charged to members of their color is well known , " Gen. Garlington says. "Under such circum stances self-protection , or self-inter est , is the only lever by which the casket of their minds can be pried open. Acting upon this principle , the history and record of the regiment to which they belong , the part played by these old soldiers in this record were pointed out and enlarged upon. The odium and disgrace to the battalion and its individual members by this crime was indicated ; the future effect on the individuals and the battalion at a whole was referred to , and finally the concern of the president of the United States in the matter , his desire and the desire of the war departmerrt. to separate the innocent from the guilty were expressed , but without ef feet.
