No man In Utah who knows any thins about mo can say that I hare ever taught or practiced polygamy, and that it all there la to the matter. Any attempt to out mo beoaas ot the chorea to Which I belong would bo raising a question ol re ligious prejudice, and from the general tone ot tha newspapers ot the east, as welt as those of ih west, I do not think that the country Is ready for any religious test as a qualification for oOoo.1 The newly elected senator from Utah was em Ms way from his bom to Washington, whero be will remain wntll the middle of Karen, making arrangements for quarters when the regular sessions open aeit fall and getting the lay of the land, unless a special session Is called, la the event ot which he will Immediately enter upon the discharge of the duties of his office. The Junior senator from Utah will be one t the few senators from a state west of tha Missouri to be a native of the state which be represents. He was bora la Utah la 18M, the son ot Abraham O. Bmoot, who entered the territory at the head ot a, sec ond company pf Mormon Immigrants to cross the plains from Council Bluffs In the year 1847. In appearance Mr. Bmoot Is youthful. Somewhat over six feet'tall, he Is slender and lithe. His rathor small alsed head Is well set on a slender neck, and he has acquired a habit of stooping, beoauae of bis superior staturs. He seems to be on of the successful men of the westj for as 'manufacturer, merchant, banker politician and on of the twelvj apostles' of the Mormon church he has never - met failure, and' froia his decided tone when talking of the expe rience he expects at Washington he dors not believe that he Will score a failure Ut the first time at the national capital. While be greets the Interviewer In a frlendlj spirit and says, "I never repulse a report er," yet he does not volunteer Informatics and replies briefly and positively to ques tions. .. . ' Charflk., Hot ! Polities.' The church In 'politics? Well, It len t in politics. There are men ot all politic. : beliefs In the church, but the church Is i good enough exsuse for the disgruntle: . politician. Whenever the people lose cot ' fldence. In a man, or he Is defeated f any reason, he Immediately sets up tl j cry of the church In politics,' and to tit. ' outside world attributes his defeat to tt church organisation, which, to my certa: knowledge, takea no part In politics. "Why,- they have even com to oonetdr the . business organisations as xarta of the church, knd people who know no better be-j lteve that the church ponducts business afj fairs'. The Z. C. M. I. has among 1U boarjj of directors a number of gentiles, and then companies are stock companies In the same, sense that such oompanles are organise. In any state. Utah Is making wonderful progress In all material lines at this tim'j Our manufactures are sola in Chicago an. Cincinnati AnAiOtkvr astern cities an! Omaha does not maintain tads cloae trad relations with our people which- It may. some day. I have been In Omaha fro-. quently, but have no acquaintance here "Much talk has been mad of the fact that I am an apostle In the church. Well, under the peculiar organisation of the church nearly every respectable member has some priestly office. There are many grades and the apostleshlp Is one. There are tweiv of these apostles, and while the church is ruled by what Is practically democracy, the twelve ara looked upon as a class set apart In a sense. At the samo time every man devotes his time to aecular matters to a larga extent. I hare been i buslneas man alt my life and am now In terested In banks and other Institutions. As an apostle L have never drawn any money from the church, and the position carries with It no particular prestige In any walk of Ufa outside ot tha church or ganlsatlon proper." . Reyertlng again to the business condi tions In Utah. Senator Bmoot eald: "We manufacture almost everything Jn that state, and right now w are turning our attention, to sugar beets, which Is to be one ot the principal crop of the west. The oil seems to b peculiarly adapted to the growth ot beets and the people alive to the possibilities of the business." Mr. SmOot la Interested In the manufao tur ot beet sugar In Idaho as well as Utah, and on of the first questions he asked ot a friend who had been In Salt Lake sines he left wab at to what the Idaho legislature had don In regard to the proposed bounty on beet sugar. The senator left at 6:20 over 'the Northwestern tor the east. Ha la Circle Daaec.

Not only did they have the pleasure of seeing and hearing the man whose fame has eclipsed the names of all thleftakers from Hawkshaw to Old Sleuth, not to mention one or two whose light has Illumined some of the dark cor ners of local underllfe, but also had the pleasure of seeing him take a couple ot 'shots" at himself with a "dope gun," sod pull off the arrest of the only criminal whose trail had baffled blm for a longer time than that consumed In a journey from his comfortable quarters In Baker street to the police headquarters. But Professor Morlarty was taken, and his gang broken up, and the whole transaction was achieved with such neatness and reason able dispatch as to elicit the mont en thusiastic approval from the persons who had assembled to witness the performance. Sherlock Holmes Is hardly an Ideal hero. but Mr. Gillette, by his Intelligent con. keptlon of the Conan Doyle creation, en. Vows It with an Interest It does not In trinsically possess, and gives such a fasci nation to his progress that the auditor (aid spectator as well waits as eagerly lor the Inevitable end as ever did a boy r in a- breathlessly to his "penny dreadful" Itr "shilling shocker" In anticipation of the fmouament that never varied. Mr. Gil Irtte ha broadened In his art. It Is a i ng step from "Too Much Johnson" to ."Secret Service," and an Immensely longer l ie from 'Secret service to BnenocR I olmes." That he has negotiated the dls- I mee and apparently well In hand, as the i icing men say. Is an excellent earnest ot Ills ability to do safely the greater things e aspires to. Mr. Olllette might easily t ake his Sherlock Holmes a bully de I ctlve, a genuine hero for ''below stairs,' I it be doesn't. He makes him Just what .' r. Doyle did. rational, human, and even t imane, and most attractive In his reason r ileness. Not a single Incident In his t rilling career Is marked by a discovery 1'iat an ordinarily acute observer would I )t have made, nor sn action that a com- I only cautious person would not have liken. 'But the whole Is so perfect In (inception and delineation that the result shallenges the highest admiration. And tnly admiration was expressed by the very fashionable audience which filled the Boyd neater last evening. Miss Ida Conquest, who Is wsll remem tared her for her work with John Drew In "Tha Tyrsnny of Tears," and who later had the role of Lady Mary In Mr. Mans- Aeld'a "Beaaealre," succeeding Miss Mol llson. Is Mr. Gillette's heroine. She Isn't on the stage a great deal, but 'her liyle time ts so taken up as to give her an ex rellent opportunity to show her talent a an actress. 8he submits to considerable maltreatment during her first two appear ances, but in the third, and tidal, she Is allowed to gain sweet recompense for all her troubles, by doing a very noble deed and then disappearing from view locked In the arms of the man she loves. Her clev erness Is admitted. So must be the art ot Miss Cortelyou, who has the really difficult role of the female criminal. Mr. Percy gives a good Idea ot the British professional man In comfortable circumstances, a physl clan who can afford to have his callers directed to a rival practitioner while he busies himself In the affairs of lq ama teur thief-taker. Griffith Evans. Ralph Del- more and Qulnton McFherBon not only act but look the parts they have to assume and Harry MeArdle, as Billy, the de tectlve's sstute "buttons," certainly made a hit with the gallery. The entire cast Is worthy ot the star, and the setting ot the piece Is most appropriate, while Its action Is made well nigh perfect under the skillful stsge direction of Mr. William Postanc. In passing It may not be out of place to refer to one feature ot tha affair which la Mr. Gillette's own Idea. That Is the raising and lowering of the curtain In ab solute dsrkness. - How much this enhsnces the artistic effect of the stage picture can hardly be told. It must be seen to be fully understood. It is far from being the least pleasant feature ot the performance. "Sherlock Holmes" will be given again this evening and at a matinee and evening performance on Saturday.

Regarding the matter, President Powers tonight said: I have sent a reply to Mr. Hart, stating that it will be Impossible for me to attend the proposed Chicago meeting on Monday. There is some funny business going on somewhere and' 1 am getting tired of this th ng, hen President Johnson was here re cently President Pjlllam of the National league and myself had a conference with him, and we agreed that the meeting lor an Informal talk over the rules, and a new national agreement should be held In this city on Friday, February 20. 1 am tired of running after Mr. Johnson. and I don't propose to do so any more.

Opinion seems to be divided a to how the people of South Omaha will take to the proposed Issue of bonds. The lesse on the present city ball building expires In De cember, while the overlap should be taken care ot at once In order to save Interest. s Then there comes the sewer question. The city Is growing rapidly, and bore sew. er are needed. The principal Idea of vot ing bonds for a sewer Is to assist the cor porations In constructing a sewer from the south line of Swift's plant to the river. Those who have watched this sewage ques tion for years assert that a big brick sewer Is needed, but they say that the price the city Is expected to pay Is a little high. In explaining the city hall bonds one member, of the council said that $50,000 would pay for the site, erect and furnish the building. In this proposed building it Is Intended to Include ' police and fire de- partment headquarters. Almost every ac tion of the city officials now seems 'to de pend upon the changer In the chartir made by the legislature. (lntblnar Still deeded. In response to a call sent out by Su perintendent McLean of the puhllo schools through the pupils and the press there was a hearty response yesterday, but there ts still a demand for mora clothing. The children's clothing already sent In Is being distributed -among the poorer classes, and especially where clothing 1 absolutely needed. Prof. McLean hopes that the peo ple of South Omaha will continue to send In children's clothing, as a number of fami lies are still known to be in need. Applications for charity still com in. Everyone who is in absolute need is being given fuel and food, but In almost every instance some official of the city Investi gates before an order Is Issued. Not long ago a woman who lives In the southwest ern part of the city applied to the city authorities for an order for some groceries. As she was pretty well known the request was refused. The women went to Omaha and secured from the county an or der for $2 worth of groceries. Armed with this order she Invaded a South Omaha grocery store and bought a dosen bananas, a can of maple syrup, some ginger cakes and a hag of oranges. Additional Salts Comlsg. Preparations are being made by attor neys to commence suit against the elty of South Omaha to recover for taxes paid on seversl paving districts. Yesterday at torneys: were looking up th histories of thaee .navlng districts. Those to be at tacked first are the N street paving and repavlng, the paving on Twenty-fifth street from M to O streets and the paving of Twenty-sixth street from L to Q streets. The N street paving district was created by ordinance in 1889, the Twenty-sixth street district In 1891 and th Twen'y-flfth street district In March. 1891. It Is asserted by the attorneys inter ested that the taxes collected are Illegal and that those who have paid have grounds for a suit to recover. In all three uf the districts mentioned quite a sum has been paid, but there still remains a balance' which amounts to considerable. Nat urally the city will contest. Grading Besomed Today.
