bitrshir guards his house-breaking aud
a thief his larcenies. Those, who are
convicted of polygamy regard them
selves and are regarded by their friends
as martyrs, and think it no disgrace to
be sent to the penitentiary.
Tho commission, in view of the pres-.
cut condition of tho territory as regards
polygamy, does not think Utah should
lie admitted ns a state. Should it be,
the commission says, "jt &uld nut be
long before the gentile element wkh its
advanced civilization, its trade and traf
fic would be driven from the territory,
and the Mormon theocracy be made su
preme." Tho commission makes a number of
recommendations, among them that tho
jurisdiction of all polygamous and sex
ual offenses, without regard to the place
where they are committed, within the
territory, lie conferred on 'the district
courts; that the terms for unlawful co
hubition be extended to at least two
years for the first and three years for
the second offense; that it be made a
penal offense for any woman to enter
into the marriage relation with any
man, knowing him to have a wife living,
midivorced: that any person who refuses
to take oath that he or she is not cohab
itatingwith more than one husband or
wife in the marriage relation, as the
cose may be, shall be excluded from
making location and settlement upon
public lauds; that the laws with refer
ence to the immigration of Chinese and
the importation of contract labor, pau
pers and criminals be so amended us to
prevent the immigration of persons
claiming that their religion justifies the
crime of polygamy; that tho constitu
tion should be amended so as to further
prohibit polygamy: that a law be en
acted creating a board to consist of the
governor, the Utah commission aud the
secretary of the territory to apportion
Salt Lake City into alderuiauio and
councilmitnic districts.
In regard to the prohibition of immi
p ration the report says: "While we for
bid the immigration of the non-proso-lyting,
peace-loving, docile- Chinaman,
because we fear a future danger from
his coming; while we forbid the lauding
on our shores of contract laborers, be
cause they cheapen the wages of American-born
citizens; and paupers because
they become a burden; there is a far
greater reason for closing our doors as a
nation and refusing citizenship to the

In concluding, the report say con

New Yoiik, September 29. New York
proporty owurrs are greatly exercised
over the results of taking Chinese as
tenants. They find that the Mongolians,
like a plague radiating from a single
place of business, spread through a
street in defiance of law and persuasion
and the street is as effectually ruined as
though infected with small' pox. The
district attorney is now investigating a
charge of boycott mode by John P.
White, the owner of a building on Molt
streot, againt the Wing We Hing com
pany. iinKrlrs of Chinese merchandise.
They were former teuants of the build
ing but refused to renew tho lease ex
cept on such terms as they dictated.
Mr. White soon found himself nuableto
lease the building either to Chi
nese or any one else. The former
because a notice had been posted
warning all Chineso against it and
the latter because they would not oc
UPV a building after thn fililur l,onn......
hod been in it. The Chinese have se
cured a foothold in New York. If it
becomes firmer, if the increase of Chi
nese population increases at the rate of
15 per cent as it has iu the last vear
despite the icstrioting act, what will be
the effect on property valnes? Tlint is
the question that is troubling the land
lords. Should the Chinese greatly iu.
crease ami should tlisv luinn. ;il.
gard to other property tactics similar tor
those adopted in Mr. White case, the
iuuuimius wouui ne entirely at their
mercy. They misht drive the Chinese
out by a concerted effort, but in order
to secure Cancusian tenant in the va
cant place they would be obliged to
renovate thoroughly, even should thev
not bo complied to tear down and re
build the entire district.

Washington-. V. C, Sept. 27. Tho
Evening Capital snys: The ieiort of
Messrs. Ea itig. Campbell and Bruce, the
commission that investigated the pen
sion office, though closely guarded by
the interior officials, is gradually becom
ing known. It is known that the report
lakes up each relating case separately
aud each is exhibit in itself. Stress is
laid Ukiii the fact that Deputy Commis
sioner Hiram Smith, jr., received over
S0,W0 as a leraliiig. This action of his
comes for severe criticism iu the reoit.
Whether or not Smith has returned this

Secretary Noble, iu view of ih report
of the commission, has himself ques

ing the rerating. Tho rejiort also con
demns Squirts, especially for his notion
iu making cases special. It states that
Squires possesed the stamp of Tanner
as commissioner and aflued it to papers
without tho commissioner's knowledge.
Tho number of such can'fs a very largo
number, is given, and Commissioner
Tanner is criticised for his carelessness
in thus entrusting his official prerogative
to a mere private secretary who violated
the confidence reposed in him. The

that tho olio who received the largest
amount of nil. Deputy Commissioner
Smith, is still in oflice.
A member of tho board who made tho
investigation intimated to a reporter
that the chief culprits were still in lwi
tion, but would soon follow Mr. Tanner
iuto privato life.
Corporal Tanner was today seen by a
representative of tho press at his resi
dence and questioned as to the genuine
ness of the letter pnrKiiting to have
been written by him to Private DulzelJ,
oud telegraphed this morning from
Caldwell, O. He stated that the letter
was genuine, and had been written in
confidence to a man whom he consid
ered a friend. He said tho letter was
evidently stolen.
Commissioner Tanner is indignant
about tho publication of his letter to
Private Dalr.cll. Ho is not prepared to
state whether the letter had been made
public by Privato Dalzell intentionally
or whether Dalzell had allowed it to
slip out through some one who had
access to his correspondence, aud says
that inasmuch as the letter was a confi
dential one and not intended for pnl
hcatiou he will not discuss anything iu
connection with it.
With reference to the rerating of De
puty Commissioner Smith Mr. Tanner
says: "The relating cases that came be

was that of Deputy Commissioner
Smith. His cast) was not made special.
There were nine other cases where tho
