AFFAIRS ARE QUIET IN JOLO
3rompt Dealing With 'Recent Upris
ing Has Made Deep Impression
on the Lawless Troops Will
Be Needed, for. Duty.
"WASHINGTON, Dec 30. General Wood,
commanding the Department of Mindanao,
Philippine Division, in Wb annual report
to tha "War Department.- said that the
troops of the department have been In
the field a great portion of .the year, quell
ing: armed uprisings and prO-sn.Ung slave
trade and kindred abuses. He says that
in almost every instance actual fighting
was Initiated by the Moros.
"Conditions among the Moros through
out the department are generally peace
ful." says General Wood, who adds:
"The establishment of civil government
and the extension over them of certain
lars and regulations has caused some
excitement and at times serious resist
ance, especially the law prohibiting slavery-
In some sections active hostility has
been engendered by our presence, espe
cially in the Lake Lanao region, where
almost constant murderous attacks on
workingmen and soldiers were the rule
until the effects of the recent expeditions
to the Tarca side of the lake, combined
with expeditions to other sections of the
Lanao, were felt by the Moros."
The power of the Moros of that section,
he says, has been completely broken. Con
tinuing, the report says:
"In Jolo ififairs are quiet. The prompt
crushing of the Hassans uprising has
made a deep impression on the people,
and the abrogation of the Bates agree
ment has done much to bring to an end
the unfortunate conditions which existed
Dato Alls' party, the .report adds, Is the
only band of Moros now openly hostile,
and it is small and is being followed by
troops and scouts. General Wood says
It is believed there will not be any very
eerious resistance of authority by the
Moros in the future, but there will be
constant work of a police character, re
quiring the use of troops and constabu
lary. The report shows that trials by general
courts-martial have . diminished 'for en
listed men an-? increased for officers.
General Wood recommends encourage
ment of the islands', local shipping inter
ests, the use of a repeating shotgut load
ed with buckshot, and a 45-caliber re
volver for Outpost duty. He says that;
while the "United States has increased
the expensiveness of the native Philippine
soldiers, an compared with the native sol
dier under Spanish rule, we have not in
creased his usefulness lor h'e purpose for
which he Is maintained.

Asked Passage of Bill Already Made
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
Ington. Dec. 21. The urgent necessity for
a. Delegate in Congress from Alaska was
very forcibly impressed upon the House
of Representatives a few days ago, when
that body proceeded to pass a bill ex
tending the coal land laws to Alaska.
Nearly half. an hour was given up to de
bate on this bill, and at the close of the
discussion It was passed. Chairman La-
cey, of the Public Lands Committee, had
been the principal champion of the meas
ure. and had strongly urged its favorable
Fifteen minutes after the bill had been
passed by the House, Representative
Cushman came in, heard what had been
done, and -Jumping to his feet, attracted
the Speakers attention. I call atten
lion to the fact that the bill just passed
by the House to extend the coal land
laws to Alaska is identical with a bill
which passed the Senate last session," he
said. "That bill Is on the Speaker's ta
ble, and I ask unanimous consent that
It be substituted for the bill passed by
The Speaker, -on investigation, reported
that he had no such Senate bill on his
desk. Then a light began to dawn upon
Mr. Cushman and Mr. Lacev. Somewhat
confused and embarrassed, Cushman an
nounced to the House that he then recol
lectcd that the bill extending the -coal
-land laws to Alaska had been passed by
both House and Senate at the last ses
sion, and is now a law.
Things have come to a pretty pass
when nobody knows what has been done
for Alaska, and when the House, In its
ignorance, passes two bills for the same
purpose. The men who have been looking
out for Alaskan legislation evidently have
not refreshed their memories since Con
gress convened. Had there been a Dele
gate from Alaska on the floor, the House
would not have fallen Into this error.

on account of This having plural wives.
Koberta secured an acquittal by appeal
ing his case after conviction.
Mainy instances of Mormon officials re
fusing to recognize Informations- charging
polygamy were reported to the committee
by the witness. The Information In the
case against President Smith was sworn
to during the past Summer, and was based
on admissions of polygamous cohabitation
made before the Senate committee- since
the-openfng of the Smoot Investigation. A
Gentile County Attorney declined to prose
"culfc, afd the witness.
Mr. Owen said that this past Summer he
learned "of a. challenge made by W. E.
Borah, at one time retained by Senator
Smoot ss counsel, that if any sworn informations-were
filed with him charging
Idaho Mormons with being polygamists,
he would prosecute to conviction. The
witness said he fifed sworn Informations
in 20 cases'. Including those of Parkinson
and other prominent Idaho Mormons.
"Did Mr. Borah prosecute these per
sons?" asked Mr. Taylor.
"No. sir. He stated in a speech at
Lewiston a few days later that he had re
ceived some important Information, but
he did not know Gharles Owen and that
he was not hunting the snipe In the val-
ley; that he was hunting the tiger in the
jungle Frederick T. Dubois."
The witness said he was approached
when the Lorenzo Snow case was insti
tuted before Judge Bartch, a member of
the supreme bench ot Utah, and urged to
withdraw the prosecution on the ground
that It was Ill-advised, President Snow
being a very old man and one whose
prosecution would arouse a great disturb
ance.- Mr. Owen said that ne told Judge
Bartch that President S.ndw had in his
house a child born to his ninth wife, and
that being the head of the church and one
of the signers of the application for am
nesty, his violations of the law were par
ticularly offensive. Mr. Owen told Judge
Bartch he did not care to prosecute the
poor who had no money to make a de
fense, and that he was after the leaders
of the church.
On cross-examination by Mr. Worthing
ton, Mr. Owen admftted that the" informa
tions he filed In Idaho were all cases
where ho had been informed by attorneys
that the law was Ineffective and that the
defendants could nt be reached. Mr.
Owen said that he -made his reports to
Dr. Paden, one of Jttfa prot?stants, ahd to
no- other person or organization. He had
-not been eiuployed by the Senate com
mittee," he said.
The witness was cross-examined as to
the religion of the various Judges who
have passed on prosecutions of Mormons
and of County Attorneys who had refused
to prosecute. A majority were 'said, to be
Mormons or Jack Mormons. The witness
admitted that he had stood for pictures of
the endowment-house garments published
recently by a local paper.
Evidence All In.
Mr. Tayler, representing the protestants,
said be had concluded his case except to
put In documentary evidence. He asked
the right, however, to call other witnesses
who thus far have not been found, al
though search has been made for .them.
Mr. Worthington protested against go
ing ahead with his case until he Is as
sured that the prosecution had concluded.
Chairman Burrows said that witnesses
such as Apostle? Grant and Merrill would
be heard, if found later, but beyond in
stances of that character he understood
that the case of the protestants is ended
Messrs. Tayler and Worthington agreed
as to the putting In of documentary evi
dence. Mr. Worthington announced that
while the sudden close and the unfinished
condition of the protestants' case is em
barrassing to him, he would furnish food
to the fire by a list of names of persons he
desires to have subpenacd as witnesses
for the defense.
The protest against Senator .Smoot and
his denial of the charges were called to
the attention of the committee by Mr.
Tayler, who said he would endeavor to
prove the correctness of , the charges al
leged by recognized Mormon workers.
Objection was made by counsel for Mr.
Smoot to a book published by Parley
Pratt, on the ground that it has not been
shown that it 1a one of the accepted doc

suggested that the counsel agree as to

The latest clewin the." murder mystery of
Cheyenne Mountain which has been re
ceived by the Sheriff and Chief of Police
Is now being traced out by officers of the
departments, and with some prospect of
success. The clew was furnished by Mrs.
Ellen E. Jack, who owns a number of
mining claims on Cheyenne Mountain and
who discovered several pieces of women's
clothing while on her way td this city
A part of a white skirt and portions of
a woolen dress were In the find, but as
she had heard nothing of the sensational
murder mystery Mrs. Jack did not report
her find until today. Sheriff Grimes and
Chief of Police Reynolds and two officers
were at once dispatched to the region de
scribed by Mrs. Jack.
The woman states that about dusk in
tho latter part of November she saw a
man whom she took to be a German
climbing along the hillside In an excited
manner, carrying a bundle In a gunny
sack. He appeared to be avoiding the
regular roadway as much as possible, and
walked among the trees along the
road. He Is described as between 40 and
SO years of age. wore a mustache and
short whiskers of a light brown.
The man was very excited and asked
for directions to some place to stop for
the night, but when directed to the section-house
on the Short Line road, paid
no attention to the directions given but
continued on over the hill In the direction
of Cripple Creek.
. Chief Reynolds received a telegram to
day from Chief of Police Ball, of Atlanta,
Ga., asking for a full description of the
girl found on the mountain.
