BY AN OVERWHELM
The Utah Congressman-Elect Presented
His Own Side of the Case.
Wahiiincton, Dul 5. After tin inter
OHting debate three hours, t hi; house to
duy, by a votit of .'102 to III), adopted the
resolution offered by 'JV.ylor, of Oiiio,
yeHterduy, for the apjtoi tiLmeiit ul u
Hpcciul committee to invcatignto the
charges against Brighuin II. Roberts, the
Mormon representative-elect from Utah.
Previously the house Imd rejected 11 nub
Htituto resolution offered liy Illehiinison,
tliu leader of the minority, to allow Rob
erta to lie sworn in und to send the whole
mio to the judiciary committee. Thia
mihatituto resolution, however, by no
meiiiti) commiinded the full Democratic
Ktruiigth. Only fifty seven members
voted for it. Of the thirty who then
voted against the Tuyler resolution, nil
wore DiimociutH oxoupt two L')iid,u
Citliforuia Republican, und Newlunds, n
eilvurite from Nevudu.
By ihe terms of the resolution Roberts
in not only excluded from nil purtiuipa-
tion in the proceeding of the houHe until
the committee reports und the haute
passes upon his e.ife, but he in denied u
weut in the hall. Whether this will be
interpreted to deny him admission with
in the chamber pending the dis position
of his ense is yet to be decided.
The reading of tho president's message
wiir compluttly ovornhadowed by the
Democratic proceedings which resulted
in the action of the house today. The
tralleriea were thronged with flpectutorB,

more until it was concluded.

Ntw Yoiik, Dec.0. A dispatch to the

the press dispatches which came through
yesterday were forecaste of the terrible

It is now certain that the Boers are in

Natal, was put by good judges at 25,000
to 30,000 men. If we accept the hitter
figure, and deduct 2000 for losses which
may have been made good by disloyal
Dutch recruits from Natal, and another
