Final Argnmcnts In Tfcc Ectols In

SADE AGAINST HIM
Taking of Testimony IScuun Id the Case
of Senator Clark, of Montana.
WasiiixciTiN, Jan.fi.--When the Uob.
erts couiiuittee retuuird Its sesrion to
day, Roberts went on with bis argument,
begun yesterday. He reviewed the action
of the, conititutionai convention of Utah,
urging that this carried out Die require
ments of congress for the ad million of
Utah aa state, namely, that polygamous
marrlnget mould no longer be con
tracted. In particular, Kobertt con
tended there wai no requirement by con
grett or in the constitutional convention
that previously contracted matrimonial
associations should be interrupted.
Iu tho course of his argument, Koberta
said be bad obterved that the ladies In
volved in this queition of plural wives
were quite generally received In the
circles of (ienlile ladies of Vtah. He
vehemently denounced what be charac
tnrlrij as the sensational cruado made
against him, and alio the effort to arouie
public feeling by saying the American
home "was In danger." "If necessary,"
be exclaimed, "I could call audition to
ten thousand evils which threaten the
conntrv without going to the state of
Inclosing, Huberts said that the pa
triotism pf the Mormon church toward
the country could not be questioned.
When a fund was raised for thesurvivors
of the battle-ship Maine, the Mormon
church bad contributed one fifth of the
entire amount. When the conntry's
authority in the Philippine was
questioned, "Utah's gnr.s, handled by
I'Uh men, had been in the fore-front
of the fray."
Schroeder, the (ientile representative,
stated that no further point would be
made on Polierts' natural Mtlon papers,
as It was desired to exclude him from
c 'ingress specifically and solely on the
ground of bis being a pclygamist. After
the arguments cloed, members ol tho
committee attached some Importance to
tho question avked by Chairman Tayler,
of Huberts, relative to the latter beinc
amendable bile in the District of Col
umbia to the K lintinds act. It is undcr
stool special attention may be given by
the committee to tills feature.
At 12 the arguments on both sides
were closed, and the committee went in
to execntlve sesiun. At the executive
session it was decided t close the bear
ing and the testimony, unless ex-Secretary
Carlisle decided to be beard
further. The committee then adjourned
until 10 a. m., next Wednesday. There
was no rote or other action on the final
disposition of the case.
Oregon Delegation Indorse V. C. Hale
for Alaska District.
Wamiiis'iitom, Jan. 5. Memliers ol the
Oregon delegation today united in unan
imously recommending the appoint
ment of Judge W. C. Hale, of Kugene,
Or., as district judge of Alaska, to fill
the vacancy caused by the resignation of
Judge Johnson. Judge Hale was once
judge of the first district of Oregon, and
ha strong indorsement from the
circuit judges of the statu, well as the
judges ol the supreme court, and from
prominent Republicans. He wai a candi
date for the office at the time Johnson
was appointed, and was then supported
by the delegates to the national conven
tion at St. Iiuis. Although at present
this judgeship pay but flHHH), there are
very good indications that the salary
will be increased to at least f.'iOOO.
Moreover, should Judge lUlefnil to
secure this appointment, he will stand a
very good chance of S'-cui ing one of the
new judgeships, as it is almost certain
that at least one, and perlmps three, new
districts will bo created in Al.irkn l y
the present congress. Senator Mcllrldc
thinks it is very likely that tho territory
may be divided into four districts, as
this number Is really tieential to an
efflulent judic al system, and i rn om
ni'oi'lud by (iovernor I'rsdy. With the
Oregon delegntion a unito for Hale, bis
chances of sum M in ooc ol !hee ( (fleet

It boiug quite teverely criticised on ac
count of bit speech in favor of the seat
ing of S-nator tiay. Those who are
opposed to "i'lsy, and especially a large
number of senators, think the Massa
chusetts man went outside hit position
at a senator in declaring himself, snd
that it was unwarranted to make a
statement and partial argument in favor
of seating IJuay before tho case actually
came before the senate. The excuse
which be made to get hi remarks before
the people is said to be altogether too
lame, at petitions upon one side or the
other have been pourii.g in upon
senators ever since Q lay was appointed.
