on Cost of War.
ST. PETERSBURG, April M.-Russia ha
mad a new issue of 114,000,000 in paper
currency against free gold In the State
bank. At the ministry of finance it waa
explained that it was an ordinary Issue
and In no sen waa forced. Under the
law paper la issuable to double the amount
of gold, up to l0,ooo,ooo gold, an excess of
which paper lasusd must be covered, ruble
for ruble. In the State bank there Is In
round figures 1400,000,000 In gold, which
would permit of an issue of 0,000,000 in
paper, but the paper issue at present only
amounts to $350,000,000.
All sorts of figures of the cost of war are
printed abroad The correspondent of the
Aksoclated Press Is authoritatively in
formed that the dally expasea are averag
ing 1760,000 and It la eetlmated that a year
expenditures for the war will total $260,
000.000. To meet thla there existed a free
balance of $50,000,000. which was increased
to 1116,000,000 by reductions of the ordinary
budgets, leaving ostensibly $136,000,000 to be
found. But a portion of tbe latter la made
up by the Increased earnings of the rail
roads owned by the government, It being
in reality a question of bookkeeping. How
the balance is to be raised baa hot yet been
determined. No foreign loan has been ar
ranged and none Is desired If It can bs
avoided, aa practically the total of the
war expenditure will be raised at home.
The ministry of finance believes It may be
easy to float an internal loan late In the
summer or fall.

WASHINGTON, April 21.-The feature of
today's hearing In the Smoot case before
the senate committee on privileges and
elections wss the testimony of Angus M.
Cannon, for twenty-five years president
of the largeot Mormon Stake In the world.
The testimony was of a personal char
acter, dealing with the conviction of the
witness on charges of polygamous cohabi
tation, and was drugged from him under
protest that he be protected from any peril
or liability to prosecution for what he re
vealed. When assured that his plural marriages,
under the statute of limitations could not
be used as evidence-against him. he an
swered most of the questions. The same
frankness was not apparent, however, when
the witness was preened to reveal the na
ture of the oath he had taken In the En

Polyaamy In Idaho.
Calvin Cobb, publisher of the Boise States
man, was examined In regard to polygamy
In Idaho and the Influence of Mormon on
the politics of the state. He said there Is
no statute against polygamous cohabitation,
though several unsuccessful efforts had
been made to enact such a statute. All of
these measures, he suld, had died In the
legislature, which Is about one-third Mor
mcn. In regard to the Mormon Influence In
the state Mr. Cobb said that the chairman
of the state organisation Of both parties
goea to Salt Lake before every campaign
and both come back and say that every
thing has been fixed "all right." He said
that after the election one or the other
usually felt that things had not been "ail
right." Mr. Cobb related the effort before
the legislature to have called a constitu
tional convention to enact an amendment
to test Mormonism. The amendment was
defeated several times and finally John
Henry Smith visited Boise and soon after
ward the resolution was adopted.
Counsel for the prosecution examined Mr.
Cobb relative to the Influence Mormon are
alleged to have attempted to bring to bear
for the retention of Senator Smoot This
was shown, said Mr. Cobb, by a delegation
of the Idaho legislature, which called upon
W. E. Borah, a candidate for the senate,
and asking him what would be his attitude
as a United State senator If the case of
Senator Smoot should come up.
At the afternoon session Angus M. Can
non Was called to the stand. He said he
hss lived In Salt Lake since 1849, but had
been blessed In the Mormon church when
he was S years old. He Is 70 year old
and now hold the position of patriarch In
the Mormon church, having been desig
nated for that position by President Joseph
F. Smith about two week ago. Patriarch,
