no effort will bo made to revive It and the
decision of the court will he compiled with,
I feel certain. As a matter of fact the
members of the association saw the hand
writing on the wal' aoon after we begun
our fight; they were forced to tho con
viction that it was uselesa for them to go
up against such a determined fight as we
were making, and so they simply cut their
cloth accordingly. As you know, they dis
solved their association soma wueks ago,
knowing this result waa Inevitable.
"I want to say we certainly must give
Attorney General Brown a vast amount

got through so well. And Judge Sullivan,

"The court's decision Is In accordance of
tho Only law I know anything about,", re
marked W. ,J. Connell, attorney for the ma
jority council members exonerated by the
decision of the supreme court in . the gas
ordinance case. "When we went Into that
case It was such a dead open and shut
game of cinch that I really felt some mls-glvlngs-
just because It waa such a certain
thing. This decision wipes the whole thing
out. It pulls it' up by the roots and throws
it over the fence."
This litigation originated from th most
exciting and 'memorable council meeting In
many years in Omaha. It waa at that meet
ing when Mayor Moores stood In tha coun
cil chamber and exchanged heated words
with members and kept policemen sta
tioned at the doors to prevent councllmen
Inimical to the pending measure from leav
ing and thus avoid voting.
The measure under fire was the socalled
$.'$ gaa ordinance. Acting for Interested
parties, said to be a Cleveland lighting
syndicate which sought a franchise In
Omaha, T. W. Blackburn had secured th
Issuance of a restraining ofder to prevent
th council from passing this ordinance.
Five of the members attempted to pass it,
and claimed they did pass It, though City
Clerk Flbourn did not read It the third
time, and other, formalities, such as being
put from the chalr. were omitted. These
five men were fryball, Schroeder, Evans,
Huntington and Back and the four opposing
the ordinance and complying with the In
junction were Hoye, Zlmnian. Nicholson
Nicholson was In the chair, Zlmman
having vacated it. When this ordinance
came up Nicholson refused to put it to a
vote. This precipitated the riot of words
which came near developing Into blows.

the question. He did so and declared it

WASHINGTON, Feb. S.-The Senator

ably will be closed tomorrow. Announce
ment to that effect waa made by John G.
Carlisle, who hss been prorecuting the
case at the present session of congress,
at the close of the proceedings today.
The defense has not announced the num
ber of witnesses it' expects to call nor
when It will be ready to proceed.
Th hearing today dealt with alleged
Mormon Interference In business affairs
and with the endowment house ceremony.
Three witnesses testified that they had
taken thf obligation administered and as
they recalled It there was a variance in
the form aa it related to an agreement to
avenge the blood of the prophet. Henry
W. Lawrence of Salt tako City said he
had been called upon to promise to avenge

A large number of letters which ha 4

church were put Into the record to show
that he had not made complaints of the
conduct of Benjamin Cluff on the Mexican.

wore living In polygamous cohabitation.
He said he knew George Taylor, brother-in-law
of Mr. Smoot and that Taylor had
asked him (Wolfe.) to give up his demo
cratic faith and come in with "the great
majority." This was Just previous to the
election of the legislature that elected
Smoot to th senate, h said, and further
that Taylor asked him to do all he could

"I told him," said the witness, "that I
would if I thought It to be the will of the
Lord. Mr. Taylor said he believed It was
the will of God and It seems to have been.
He told me then, tfiSt' Smoot's candidacy
had been discussed and endorsed by the

ber of the committee Wolfe said that In

polygamous relations 'looked upon po I
lygamy as a divine Institution. Of th 1
Provo citizens ' Whoso names wer read,
only one, Thoma Chamberlain, had en-
tercd polygamy since the manifesto. A '
number of the songs' alleged to have been
hostile to the government of the United
States were put Into the record and Wolfe
said these songs -were sung frequently. '
William J. Thomas of Spanish Fork,
Utah, the next witness, said he had gon
through the endowment houso in 1869, and
had taken an oath to "avenge the blood
of the prophet Joseph Smith, upon this
nation and to teach hi children to do j
so down to the third and fourth genera- j
Hons." He said he was dropped from the '
church in tn w s Det--uj no u. i"i
too openly against plural marriages.
Senator Knox asked if he had ever done
anything to carry out his obligation to
"avenge the blood of the prophet upon this j
"No. sir. I enlisted twica to defend this
natlin," said Thomas.
The witness told of M. Mlchelson, form
erly an employe of Thoma. going to
Mexico to take a plural wife. Mlchelson
told the witness he was going "where he
could live his religion."
John P. Holugren of Bear River City,
IT tali, a member of the t'tah legislature
from 1898 to 190S, testified that he voted
against the Evans bill, prohibiting th first
wife from testifying against her husband
in polygamy proceedings. Ha was de
feated after this, but said lie thought it I
was not bis vote tht defeated him. Ho j
said he took the endowment house oath in .

Buttermilk Is a pleasant and healthy
drink, but there are a whole lot of desir

"Thre years ago my stomach was in
such a frightful condition that I could
scarcely bear to take any fond at all.
Indeed there waa once that I went for

preferring starvation to the acute agony
that I suffered when I ate anything. And
all this entailed upon me almost constant

"Th Road t WallvUi", In pkg.
by the Mormon church in April, lf5. II
IS a director In the Beck Salt works, and
told of having been called to Salt Lake
City to see President Joseph F. Smith and
member of the first presidency which held
th controlling Interests In the Inland Crys
tal Salt company. In company with Rich
ard Taylor Mr. Smurthwaite met th first
presidency, he said, and was t"ld by Presi
dent Smith that if he remained. In the
salt business In competition with th?
church he would be ruined.
"I told President Smith," SAld the wit
ness, "that I had the power to crush my
child, but not the right. Mr. Smith r
piled that this was business and I told him
that I thought business meant profit."
The witness then detailed the entire
Interview, which resulted In no agreement,
as the church Insisted that none of its
members should enter Into competition
with the church. Mr. Smurthwalte waa
excommunicated, he said, in consequence
of this disagreement. He spoke against
the church being In business and had
told his bishop that aa Joseph F. Smith
was the exclusive agent of God In th
church his participation In business was
equivalent to God being in business.
Finally he said he had publicly disclaimed
Smith' authority as a prophet and spoke
against his testimony on the subjeot of
polygamous cohabitation and was tried on
charges of apostscy and unchristtanlike
conduct and found guilty.
Lawrence Telia of Oath of Vengeance.
Henry W. Lawrence of Salt Lake City
was the first witness at tha afternoon ses
sion. He was born of Mormon parents and
left the church in 1W! because he became
doubtful of the church system. He said he
was associated with others In the publica
tion of the Vtah Magaslne, which advocated
the opening of mines against the teaching
of the holy prlesthopd. His associates were
excommunicated because of this policy esrly
In 1S9, but action against him failed for the
reason, he thought, that he was then a man
of affairs. , Concerning the endowment
house ceremony, which he said he took
early In his life, he said no oath was ad
ministered obligating him to covenant and
agree before God, HIS agents and the wit
nesses assembled to avenge the blood of
the prophets "Joseph Smith, Hyrum Smith, I
David Patten and Parley P. Pratt. His tes
timony is the first that has been given by
any witnesses using the names of David
Patten and Parley P. Pratt in the obliga
tion. Ife said that as administered to him
the oath did not stipulate that the ven
geance must be taken upon "this nation"
and In that respect the oath wa ambig
uous. He said he had participated later In
administering the ceremonies to others and
that no person could go through the en
dowment house without taking the oaths.
These were administered orally, he said,
and that as different parties officiated It
was likely that the wording of the obliga
tion might vary at the different cere
monies. Lawrence referred frequently to the
tyranny of the priesthood that existed dur
ing ills membership In the church and
Chairman Burrows ssked If that tyranny
existed today. The witness said that there
was more liberality shown now, but that a
man who desired to continue In good stand
Ing In the church must obey the leaders In
all things. In regard to teachings of the
church he said that nowhere In the books
was there to be found anything directing
loyalty to the government and that they
sang a song containing the lines. "Brlgham
Toung Is our king." He said from the
preochlngs he had heard he believed that
the teachings were the same today. He
said the revelation of polygamy must be be
lieved by a good church momber. whether
he practiced it or not, for to suspend one
revelation would be to suspend them all.
, - Mormon Control State.
C. M. Owen, who has been employed In
getting evidence against Mr. Smoot. was
then called." Mr. Carlisle submitted-a list of
th members of the constitutional conven
tion, all of the members of the legislatures
and state officers and others who have held
office since Utah was admitted to statehood.
Mr. Owen marked the list showing that of
those represented, every governor, secre
tary of state, treasurer, auditor and super,
lntendent of schools had been Mormons;
that two-thirds of the members of every
legislature were Mormons; that in each
legislature there had been from one to ten
polygamists and in the constitutional con
vention out of 115 members there were sev
enty Mormons, thirty of whom were polyga
mists. The supreme court was Gentile, he
said, and the other courts mixed. Mr.
Worthington sought to show that two
third of the Utah population was Mor
mon, but Owen said he did not think this
was true at the present time.
The committee adjourned until 12 o'clock
tomorrow. Mr. Carlisle aaid he thought he
could close protestants case at the forenoon
