What will be Mr. Bmoot'a fate If he

an open question. There are some In

lca true at the aume time that prob
ably a majority of the committee have
not yet made up their mlnda and will
not do so until the whole case Is heart.
One republican . member of the com
mittee said to me that he was wholly
convinced that 8 moot should not be
permitted to remain In the se'nate.
He admitted there was nothing against
Bmoot of a direct personal character.
lie waa not a polygamlijt. He had nmt
countenanced polygamous relations by
any positive, act or expression, but
negatively hd had countenanced viola
tion of law, thought this senator.
He had associated constantly with the
hierarchy, a majority of whom were
know n 'to everyone to be llvng in po
lygamous relations. Smoot miiHt have
known of these facta, lly example
and amoclutlon at leant he was giving
approval to crime.
If a mnn were a member of a club
or society, a majority of whom were
known to be counterfeiters, for exam

be any question about our permitting
him to hold a seat In the United States
aetinle? It would do no good for him
to plead that he was not a counter
feiter himself and that he, had not In
quired Into the private life of his as
sociate ; If every one else In the
community knew these men were law
breakers, he sholild know It and gov
ern himself accordingly. If he comes
here on his oath and says he did not

and severs hla connection with these
objectionable and unluwful ansoclates
he may be pardoned. Hut In my
opinion, not on any other ground.'
Members of the committee who are
dlsniiei to take a favorable view of

of the apostles are living with plural

must be differentiated from any ordl
tiaty crime, like counterfeiting. One
Of these aenators, also a republican,
remarked that he would have mighty
little respect for a man who waa
caught with a number of wives- on
hla hands, reltca of the old days, and
who Called to atand by them and live

the lawa were. He added that if
there waa such a thing In the world aa
moral crime, hla waa one, and It
could not be Juatly regarded aa harah
ly ava many, good people are In the

v.. - '
Js'jw York, March 19. "My suspen
alon la only temporary,' said Daniel
J. Sully, the cotton speculator, the
suspension of whose Arm shook the
speculative world yesterday. He made
thla declaration upon reaching hla
home after a conference at hla office
extending lute into the night
"I do not care to add anything to
that almple statement." he continued,
"and I rball not have any further
statement to make."
Mr. Sully apparently was no more
downcast than he waa exultant not
long ago when the current report waa
that he had made several millions
through the unpreccdently high prices
for cotton. He would not discuss the
Intimations that there might have been
treachery at aome point among hla
frlendfi, nor would he Indicate how
soon he expected to resume operation.
The member of the cotton exchantf
who had contracta with Daniel J. Sul
ly A Co. held a meeting, after the close
of business in the governing room of
the exih uige to dlscusae the situation.
The were creditor of the suspended
firm and manr of them did not know
whether they would be Insolvent on
'he following day. or not, in case the
failure wua a bad one.
It waa decided to appoint a
mlttee of the leading broker, of TuVch
John McFadden was t the chairman.
They vlalted the offlre of Sully & Co.,
:tnd mode a formal Inquiry aa to the
amount of cotton contract which the
firm had outstanding. No information
waa obtainable and after a protracted
discussion the meeting waa dlasolved
without any conclusion being reached.
One of thoe present said afterward;
'e counted nose and that's about
all we did. We gathered the Informa
tion, however, tha Sully doe not hold
300.009 bale of cotton. The amount la
far less than It wa supposed. I am
glad to say, and after a careful com
pilation it waa the opinion of all pres
ent that a aafe estimate of his hold
ing would be about 225.000 bales."
Upon the average price of. cotton
today hinge the outcome of the fail
ure. Should thla ba within reasonable
bounds, the creditora will not fare so
badly at at first might appear and
Mr. Sully hopeful view are grounded
on thi prospect, , ,
CRASH HALTS ACTIVITY.
Northern 8ecuritiea Brightens Market
and Sully Oampena It. ,
New York, March 19. The ending of
the suspense over the Northern Secur
ities case ha resulted In a marked In
crease in activity In the stock market
and a rebound In prices on short cov
ering. Thla came to a sudden halt,
however, upon the announcement of
the Sully failure. and the short selling
was quickly resumed in the last hour
of Friday 'a eeaslon. It waa accom-
paniel by report that great linea of
short stock ha been covered during
the two preceding eessiona by Sully
follower, but the rumors were not
substantiated. A similar rebound in
foreign market marked a turn in sen
timent there over the danger of the
war with corresponding relief to this
market Revival of demand fop Iron
and steel products, the breaking of the
drouth in the southwestern wheat belt,
more hopeful views of the promise for
future railroad business by traffic of
ficala and the -announcement that the
soft coal mlnera will accept a wage re
duction helped In the recovery. 1

New Tork, March 19. Plana are

THE OLDEST AND BEST
THE GREATEST OF ALL TONICS.
A SpHog Medicine that adds vigor and strength to the system,
purifies and enriches the Blood, and lays the foundation for a
strong constitution and good health during the hot sultry summer.
Most everybody feels bad in the spring. .Some have u6 particular ailment but are just,
tired, worn out and totally unfit for work or anything else that requires energy. or effort.
They mope around upon the border-laud of invalidism , irritable, peevish, hysterical and
A good appetite in the spring is a rarity, and we sicken at the sight of foo, or thought
of eating, "and what Jittle we do eat is a burden to the stomach and a. tax upon the digestion.
Warm weather is sure to bring out the hidden poisons, germs and seeds of disease that
have beenscollectiug in the blood and system dur
ing winter, and you may look for some old chronic
trouble to make its appearance. It is a time, too,
when boils and carbuncles, and pustular or scaly
skin eruptions like eczema and tetter, pay their
annual visits and make life miserable by their
intense pains and intolerable itching and burning.
The fight for health should begin before any
warning symptoms of physical collapse are felt, or
before the seeds of disease have time to germinate
if we would avoid the usual spring siekness: and
with S. S. S., the acknowledged king of blood
purifiers and greatest of all tonics, you can put
your blood and system m such perfect condition
and so strengthen the constitution that ohe may be as free from sickness and as vigorous and
strong during the trying months of spring and depressing summer season as at any other time.

Qeatlemen : For over foftr years I suffered with,
general debility, oausing a thorough breaking
down of my system, so that I was unable to attend
to my haftsehold duties. 1 had tried other medi
cines, which, did not relieve me. Seven years ago
my cousin, who had been benefited by S. S. 8.,
told me about it. I tried it and It cured me. I havo
been able to attend to my household duties ever

In fact, I am able to Work in the garden as well aa
