According to the official figures, the revennc agent has collected and paid into the State treasury smee the year 1880 the sum of $164.041.90, this being collected from levee boards, county treasurers, sheriffs and other sources. In addition to this the revenue agent now has suits pending involving an amonnt of over $l,560,000. These col- lections are made without cost to the State and are either voluntary pay- meats of money admitted to be due, or are payments made in obedience to the judgments of the courts. The revenue agent retains a commission, fixed by law. on what he collects, and receives no other compensation. Jnstltute for the Blind. The institute for the blind is now open to pupils from all parts of the State. The attendance is as good as conhl possibly have been expected. Last spring, it will be remembered, after the appointment of Dr. Sirr as supcrintendent of thc institution, the pupils all left the school because of their disappointment over the fact that I)r. Fairley would not be in charge. It was feared that this might have the effect of injuring the school this sea- son. but while the attendance is not large, the supcrintendent is in receipt of many letters from parents and guar- dians saying they will send their chil- dren later on. Farmers In a Duel. Quite a serious altercation, cuhninat- ins in an exchange of four shots and the wounding of both participants, oc- curred on the public road eight miles s.guth of Koseiusko. one day last week. A feud has existed between Robert Ful- ton and Joe Wagoncr, both well- known farmers of Leake county, and they met on the public highway and began hostilities. Waggoner received u flesh wound in the arm. Fulton was shot in the neck and shouldm., and se. rious]y wounded. Both parties fired two} hots with pistols. State's Co'ton Crop. J. ,I. Evans.

Bobert llas Many tVlves--If IIe I]rlngs Thtm to Congress Trouble ]ly l"(dlow--It Would Be a Brazen Affront. WASIIINGTON, NOV. 20.--Many person In Washington believe Lbat Represen - ative-eleet Brigham IL Roberts of Utal may be expelled from the honse of rep- rcsentativcs if the charge that he is  polygamist, living openly and avowedl3 with more than one wife, can be sus- tained. During the congressional campaign Mr. Roberts, who was the Democratic eandidate for congress from Utah, was charged with being a polygamist and with living with more than one wife. It was said that he had admitted that he was practicing polygamy and de- fended his action'on the ground that it was permitted by his religion. Heretofore Utah has sent Mormons to the senate and housc of representatives, but they were not Mormons who prac- ticed polygamy. Mr. King, the present represcntative from Utah, is a thorough believer in Mormonism, and last winter delivered addresses from time to time explaining and defending its teachings, but he does not advocatc or practice pot ygamy Since Utah ceased to be a Territory by its admission into the Union, the anti-polygamy laws passed by congress bave ceased to he operative there, but if Mr. Roberts is a polygamist hc is vic,lating the constitution and laws of Utah, for the new State was required hy the act admitting it to the Union to frame a constitution and make laws prohibiting and punishing polygamy. The anti-polygamy laws of congress apply, however, to the District of Co- lumbia, and it is possible that Mr. Rob- erts, if he is a polygamist, might be liable lo arrest and punishment here. These laws have been construed by the District courts in several cases, but lawyers here do not believe they wouht apbly to au offense committed in Utah. Should Mr. Roberts bring more than one wife to Washington with him, how- ever, it is believed that he would be liable to prosecution. The fact that a man is a polygamist does not make him ineligible to mcm- bcrship in the house of representatives, aecordin:4 to the opinion of leading mcmbers of the house and prominent lawyers with whom I have talked, and Mr. Robcrts probably wilt be allowed to take his seat witnout objection. Ite may not be alh}wed to hold it very long, however, for many representa- tives believe that he sboul:t be expelled. Dingley Stales the Grounds. The grounds upon which such action. if taken, would bc Imsed were stated to me by Representative Din'ley, the Re- publican leadcr of the house. "When Utah was admitted to the Union," said Mr. Dingley, "a solemn pledge was gven that polygamy should not be permitted. That was the condi- tion on which the act of admission was passed, it would now be a very bohl thing if that State, in the face'of its solemn pledge, should send to congress as one of its ea-liest representatives in he house a polygamist." Mr. Dinffley said further that if tlm charges made against Mr. Roberts should be found to be true it would not be merely an ordinary case of a law- breaker being sent to congress, it would be an affront so grave that he thought the house could tot avoid taking some notice of it. and it might be possible that it would lead to the expulsion of the represeutative from Utah if the chargcs could be proven. "I have not looked into the subject," said Mr. lfemingway of Indiana, a Re- publican representative, "but it seems o me that Mr. Roberts would be eligible, even though lie might practice polygamy. S'In view of the solem pledge which the State of Utah gave when it was ad- mitted to the Union that polygamy should be abolished I think that per- haps the house ought to expel Mr. Roberts if the charges against hi} should be substantiated. The resolu- tion of expulsion might be drawn so as to show very clearly the ground on which the house acted.'" ROBERTS TALKS OF THE CASE. 8aye ltls Marriages 'ers Not Affected b Enabling et. SALT LAKE City. Utah, Nev. 20. Rcpresentative-elect Brigiiam II. Rob. crts. of Utah, in an interview on the questiou of polygamy, said: "The settlement of that question after years of strife and heartache, left upon men moral obligations from which no decrees of the church could release them and no act of the state absolve them. The demand of thc American people as expressed through their rep- sentatives in the American congress in the enabling, act went no further than this: That perfect tolerance of re- ligious sentiment shall be secured, pro- vidcd that polygamous or plural mar- rinses are forever prohibited." Thus the demand went so far as to prohibit future polygamous marriages, but no farther." 'IO REPUDIATE CJBAN DERT. Madrld 1%eport That 8pain Will Not Pay It.
