Washington, Dec. 28. Tho bollof
Is gaining ground hero that Reed
Suoot wil resign his seat in the
United StntOB senate, rather than un
dergo tho rigid investigation of his ro
llglous connections that Is expected.
Tho belief Is based on the theory
that the powers behind Mr. Smoot aro
convinced that tho presont fight is di
rected ngalnstf'the Mormon church,
rather than tho principle of polyga
my. Thoy do not caro to havo tho re

control of eculnr mattors by the ec
clesiastical authorities laid bare, and
would forco Mr. Smoot's resignation,
In proferonco to such disclosures as

church officials. They say It will un
doubtedly not disavow beliof In tho

bo a dofenso of Mormon rollglon. If
tho Smoot opponents guess rightly,
the anBWor will bo unsatisfactory.
Each member of tho senato has re
ceived a statement sont out by tho
Ministerial Alliance, of Salt Lnka
City, roplying to tho attack madp by
a Mormon apostlo on tho practices of
Christian ministers and tho accusation
that unborn children aro murdered by
thoso bolonglng to orthodox churchos.
This and othor charges aro donlod,

this defenso wus also sent to tho com
