THE ROBERTS CASE
ARGUMENTS CONCLUDED BE
FORE HOUSE COMMITTEE.
The Utah Congressman Shows the
. Patriotism of Mormons to Be
Equal to Other Citizens.
WASHINGTON. Jan. 6 -When the
Roberts committee resunled its session
today, Roberts went on with , his. argu
ment, begun yesterday. He reviewed
the act-ion of the constitutional conven
tion, of Utah, urging that this carried
out the requirements of congress for
the admission of Utah as a state, name
ly, that polygamous marriages should
no longer be contracted. In particular
Roberts rontended there was no re
quirements by congress or in the con
stitutional convention that previously
contracted matrimonial associations
should be interrupted .
In the case of his argument. Roberts
said he had observed that the ladies in
volved in this question of plural wives
were quite generally received in the
circles of Gentile ladies irt IJtah. He
vehemently denounced what he char
acterized as the sensational crusade
madegainst 1iim. and also the effort
to arouse public feeling by saying the
American home "was in danger." "If
necessary," he exclaimed. "I could call
attention to ten thousand evils which
threaten the country without going to
the state of Utah."
In closing, Roberts said that the pa
triotism of the Mormon church toward
the country could not be questioned.
When the fund was raised for the sur
vivors of the battleship Maine, the
Mormon church, had contributed one
fifth of the- entir amount. When the
country's authority in the Philippines
.- nPct;nnMl "tffah' cruns. handled
Y .J.v..i'"v-.. - -
iy Utah men, had been in the forefront
of the tray.
Schroeder. the' Gentile' representa
tive, stated that no further point would
be made on Roberts' naturalization pa
pers, 'as it was desired to exclude him
from congress" specifically and solely
on the ground of his being a polygam-
' jt 12: jo the arguments on both sides
were closed, and the committee went
into executive session. The commit
tee adjourned until Wednesday.

OREGON LAND CASES
DECIDE IK UNITED STATES
Northern Pacific Company Loses to
the Oregon & California Company
The Property Valuable.
WASHINGTON, Jan. ' 8. In an
opinion handed down in the United
States supreme court today, by Justice
Harlan, the title of the Oregon & Cal
ifornia Railway Co to large tracts of
land in the state of Oregon was con
firmed. The lands were granted to the
railroad company many years ago,
but its claims were . contested by the
government. The main controversy
was between the Oregon & California
road and the Northern Pacific. The
Northern Pacific Company "claimed
them uirdcr.an earlier grant, but it was.
shown that tins road had not filed a
map of the definite location, and thus
failed to earn t he grant. Hencethe
court held that. notwithstanding jthe
later' date of thf grant to the Oregon
& California Company, it Was entitled
to the lands. I f-
The lands involved lie south of Port
land and largely - in the Willamette
valley. They embrace about 4i,Ooo
acres. and are said to be Worth now
$5,000,000 or $6,000,000. Like decis
ions were made in the cases of Wilcox
vs. the Eastern Oregon Land Co., and
Messenger vs. the same company.
These controversies were also largely
with the Northern Pacific Company,
in conflict with the military wajfon
rodds. The decisons were also adverse
to the Northern Pacific in these cases.
