Jadd tai XlcColly, J. J. Opinion by Jadd, J.
The prisoner with ihree others was indicted
for conspiracy to charge a felony with intent to
extort money. Tbe evidence showed that the
crime of extortion, the object of me conspiracy,
had been accomplished. The prisoner' cuunrel
sited the Court lo instroct the jury to acquit
the prisoner on Ins ground ibal the conspiracy
lind become merged in the aanaequeiit lelony.
US our tUUUi a conspiracy to cnaree n leiony
is a felony. The crimes, then, are uf equal de
gree. I here is, thereiore, no merger, and eucn
is punishable separately. See (jreenleafe: evij
dence, 00. "Where two crimes are cr equal
grade tbere can be uu ieiral technical merirer.'
.. .1 ..I , tl I DC. O. ... ,!
reope vs. .iiaiuer, s ,,cuu. uu , jwiie ,e. .uui
ray, 15 Me. 100. In tbe last case cited the
Court say, " In cases of conspiracy overt acts are
laid uerelr as evidence 01 the prmcipal cbarges,
It is not laid in this indictment that the
chartpos of a felony was actually committed, but
it was prored belore thejury, in order lo show
that the threat to charge a cerlaia lelony, was
the means employed for the extortion, and thai
was the motive for which tbe conspiracy was
formed. Jiy our statute it is clear that it is not
necessary to charge that the object ol tbe con
spiracy had been accomplished. Section 3 reads
It is not requisite that lue act agreed upon
should he done or attemptd in pursuance of the
conspiracy; the conspiracy itself constitutes the
The rights of persons accused of conspiracy
are fully protected in Section 7 uf the Chapter
on conspiracy, which provides that, Where one
is convicted ol an uuense, he is not liable there
after lo be tried for or convicted ot a conspiracy
to commit the same : and II a conspiracy lo com
mit an offense and the commission of the same
he charged in the same indictment, the defend
ant is liable to be sentenced for one only." This
section would rebottbe Mea that there coo'd be
a merger even jf the conspiracy and the uSense
which it referred lo uere ol different grades.
Tbe Court was right in refusing lo charge as re
quested. The second point made is thai the jury should
have been charged that unless they ero sans
fied that the prisoner knew that tbe crime which
the conspirators agreed lo charge npan the per
son lrom auum the money Has extorted, was
identical with thai charged in tbe indictment.
they most acquit htm.
The Court was tight in refusing this instruc
tion, tor it this prisoner did not know tbe emct
crime which was agreed tu be charged, he wai
notrJainied to be innocent of acceding la it. aud
ol receiving his share of the money which was
extorted, nod this would make him guilty ol am
spiracy. It must be admitted that if the jury
had found on the evidence that the crime to be
charged was smuggling opium a misdemeanor
iney would properly hive lound the prisoner
guilty of conspiracy in the second degree. This
instruction was not a.-ked lor by the counsel for
the prisoner, and was therefore not given or re
used, and thereiore no exception on this point
can now be considered. See Dowsell vs. Lipoa,
3 Haw. C25.
Clearly the jury were not authorized to atquit
me prisoner on the evidence, and this was the
only instruction asked for.
Messrs, E. Preston and T. C. MacDowell for
the proseculioa ; Messrs. S. B. Dole and 11. F.
Bickerton assigned counsel for the prisoner.

A Ulnli Divorce .UUI.
nOW TOET DO THI.VOS IK SALT LAKR CUT.
We always knew that (Jtah was a good place
for marrying, Jut it appears from recent invesli
gatioos that the business of untying the matri
monial knot is equally flourishing. To those
alike who feel thatlbey are not married as much
as they would like to be, aud those who think
they are married too much, Utah affords facil:
tics which it would be hard to beat. Parties de
siriog divorces are not even required to be rest
dents of the territory. It is ouly necessary that
they should declare their intention of becoming
such. When it is not convenient to appear in
person, affidavits and other papers can be for
warded by mail, und the obliging judge returns
the decree by the same channel. For further
particulars we refer our readers to the following:
Salt Lake, Sept. 27. At 2 o'clock this after
noon tbe committee appointed to inspect the re
cords ol tne rrooate Uonrt ol aslt lake (Jitv,
finished tbeir labor and made their report to tbe
brand Jury. Ihe business ol the Urund Jurv
having been finished, that body appeared in
Court at 4 o'clock, and were discharged from
further attendance. The ntler rottenness of tbe
Probate Court of Suit Lake county has been es
tablished and ehuwn up by tbe invesligations of
the committee, and the reason of the Probate
Judge for resisting the order of the District
Judge for an inspection of his records by the
committee oi me uraod Jury is apparent.
Tbe following is the substance of the report of
tne committee, addressed to At. K.. Uarkness,
r oreman, and the Grand Jury ;
Your committee hare confined themselves more
particularly to tbeir investigation to tbe branch
OI divorce business, as carried on in that Court
and we would here eay, thai it is beyond the
limit and power of ibis committee to give in de
tail every case oi aivorce us it appears on tne re
Cords of the Court; but we believe that the
showing of such cases us we present are a fair
representation ol ihe practice ol granting divor
ces in una uourl. and we think it will lullr con
vinced this jury that the system of graminir di
vorces iu said Courtis such an outrage on law and
justice that measures should be taken to slop
now THE WO EE IS DONE.
At an example of the practice in said Court.
we woota state mat lrom the oegtnoiog o! Sep
tember, lfaTC, to September, 1677, there have
been upwards of three hundred divorces cranted
and at least eighty per cent, of that number were
applied for when both parties to the suit were
non-residents ot Ihe territory and beyond the
jurisdiction of tbe Court. Under this practice
it is quite evident that great injustice must he
done, and a mocsiery made ol judicial proceed
ings which are supposed to be the most sacred
trust ol any Uonru
We find that it is the general rule of practice
in tnis uourl, wtiere the parlies ore non-resi
dents and where the complaining party prays for
relief from his or her matrimonial obligations, to
employ some not over-sensitive or over-scrupu
lous aitorney, wnosename is very seldom attach
ed to tbe complaint, to forward the same to the
rrooate Uonrt, where tbe complaint is filed
Accompanying this document is an affidavit from
the party complaining, to the effect that the
grievances alleged iu the complaint ae all made
in good laito ; mat ne or she, as the case may
be. intends lo become a resident of Utah, bnl at
present it u out of tbe power of the applicant
and that the last known place of residence of the
defendant is so and so (naming the place). Upon
tne snowing OI inese valuable sinrle-banded
documents, made by tbe plaintiff, His Hooor
Judge rjias smith issues a summons to be ad
dressed and mailed to the last known place of
residence as sworn to by the plainlin. and citing
toe oeiendanl lo appear belore his Court iu lrom
twelre to sixteen days and show cause why such
telieT should not be granted as prayed for in tbe
Then on the last day given for the appearance
fit the defendant. His Honor Judge Elias Smith
grants the decree as prayed for. Such in brief
is the practice of this bogus divorce mill, when
the parties are non-residents, and when tbe com
plaining parly prays for a decree of divorce upon
the grounds of incompatibility of temper br differ
ent aims and objects in life, etc
A STILL EASIER rBOCESS.
But we find a still mora direct mode of shuff
ling off matrimonial obligations, thus : Husband
and wife, both non-residents of the Territory,
and either of them making complaint and swear
ing that the defendant has abandoned his or her
borne, and filing such sworn atatement without
any other corroborating evidence, can get the
decree granted the eame day that the petition is
filed. An this may seem loo incredible lor be
jel, we will here cue several cases as examples
uf uiauy :
A FEW STARTLING SPECIXEX CASKS.
Rose Barry vs. Dennis H.nry Compluint filed
January 3, 1877. and sworn lo in San Francisco.
Decree granted the same day.
Dorainick Morogh vs. Josephine Morogh
Complaint sworn to in New York Cily, and filed
January 3. 1877. Decree granted the same day.

20, 1877. Decree granted Ihe same day.
llobert E. iNVebit vs. trances Isesbit Com
ilaint sworn to in Terra H-uie, Indiana, and
filed February 20, 1877. Decree granted the
fc.a me day.

plaint sworn In in SuLouir,ud filed April Kith.
PlaintiQ ewears that the deleudanls last K no u
nlace uf residence wos al ten. Decree grunted
tw. ilavs after Elin" tbe application.
John B. Vail v. B. D. Vail. Complaint
sworn to in New York, and filed April 5, 1877.
Last known place uf residence ul detenuaul was
in France. Decree granted April 9, 1877.
To further in, lance the fraudu'eut and nefari
ous practice uf ibis dirorce business, we would
cite the fnHnwimj cases :
Helen Lwnar.l applies lor a divorce lrom reier
L.eO' ard ul llhinnginn, Canada ; tiles ner com
plaint in this Court, swearing to it in Allen
county, Indiana ; asks Ibal as personal service
cannot be made uimu tlctendanl within the juris
diction of this Court, thai Ibe Court direct tbut
service be luken ui aloresaiu, according to sec
tion 5 of the Utah statutes in reference to til
vorce. The decree was gr-anledlwo days after
filiug the petition.
The Committee then go on to state the time
jn which one hundred coiiseculitu cases were
each disposed of. Iu 1C uf these the divorce
was granted on the same day the complaint was
filed. In ihe other 81 cases the impatient plain
tiffs had to wail from two to forty days before
they could obtain release liom matrimonial bond.
The Committee further report thai this nefari
ous business is on the increase, and that other
Probate Courts besides that of Salt Lake
County ore engaged in it ; that in a large nuui
ber of cases tbe complaint and all ihe papers in
said cases-arc in the handwriting of Klias Smith,
presiding Judge of the Court wherein the cases
arc pendine. shoamg Ihe questionable proceed
iocs of a Judire nractisiu? in his own Court.
The report concludes thus : "I lie developments
made by your Committee in tbeir luvestiiralions

for his order enforcing ihe law relative lo tbe in

Hint on she (,'nrc oi the Eyes.
Tbere are, perhaps, more individuals who
ascribe their weakness of sight to a use of their
eyes nnder an insoEi;ient urlihcial illumination
lhairto any one other cause. In a great many
instances this may not be strictly true, but there
cau ue uu uuuuv mat lauuy sruuusi ogui is
one of the most'prnluclire causes of n certain
class ol injuries, lo which tbe eye can be ex
posed. Tbe two sources of trouble with tbe
ordinary artificial Iiirhls ure first, they are not
pure nuite. and secondly, they are unsteady.
The first defect is found in .all artificial lights
except the lime, eleclnc and magnesium lights ;
the second especially in caudles aud gas. I he
yellowness is, in a measure, counteracted by
using, in the case of lamps and gas, chimneys
of a violet or blue tint, and the flickering of the
gas may be obviated largely by employing an
Argand burner. Ail things considered, a tier
man stndent-Iamp furnishes the most satisfac
tory light. The next, best is gas with an Ar
gand burner. The chimneys of both may, us
above suggested, be advantageously ol a light
blue tint. .
Tbe position or the light in relation to the
body is uf great importance. II a shade is used
on the lamp or burner (it should, by preference,
be ol. grouod or "milk'' glass, never uf colored
glass), the light may stand directly in front of
the body and the work be allowed lo lie in Ibe
lichl under tbe shade, which will protect the
eyes from the glare uf the Dune. If no shade is
used the back should be turned to the source uf
light, which uught to fall over the left shoulder.
The same rale applies in ibe management of
daylight. In this case the light slixulJ come
from behind and slightly above, am! fall directly
on the woik, whence it is reSacted to tbe eye.
It should never fall directly in the face.
Tbe light in the room during sleep is also not
without its influence. As a rule, the room dar
ing sleeping hours should be dark ; and, in par
ticular, care shoild be taken to avoid sleeping
opposite a window where, on opening tbe eyes
.in the morning, a flood of strong light will fall
on them. Even the strongest eves are. ufier llie
repose of the night, more or less sensitive lo the
impression "of intense light. The eyes must
have time lo accustom themselves lo the sti
mulus. Attention should be called to the injurious
effects that follow reading on railroad cars. On
account of the unsteadiness of tbe page, read
ing, under these circumstances is exceedingly
trying to tbe eyes, and should never be per
sisted in for any considerable length of lime.
During convalescence lrom severe illness tbe eyes
are generally Ihe last to regain tteir lost power.
Scnbner's Magazine. ,
He was a singularly grave man, even for a sex
ton. For nearly half a century he had been a
public fnnctionaty had performed the conspicu
ous duties of a sexton; yet no one bad ever seen
biro smile. Occasionally he joked, but he did it
in such a Oineral manner that no one couiu ac
cuse him of levity. One day he was standing on
tbe church steps wiping his melancholy features
witu a red bandanna. A heoraesiood nearnno
three or four carriages were drawn up behind it.
The notes of Ihe orenn fl-iated out of the win
dows wiih solemn effect. A stranger came along
and said: Funeral V And the old sexton
gravely howed his head it was. "Who's dead ?"
I ne old man wrain wiped his hrow anil gave me
name of the deceased. "What complaint!"
ffked the inquisitive stranger, solemnly plac
ing his bandanna in Ins hai and covering nis uaiu
head, the old eexton made answer : " There ia
no complaint ; everybody is perfectly satisfied."

Messrs.. Frederick Warne & Co., of London,
have recently published as a part of their cheap
series of the "Cbandos Class'cs." selections from
Ihe Talmud," translated by II. Polano, a book
that is full of curious and valuable information.
Among the contents is a collection of the Pro

following have been selected :

Francis Joseph, or Austria.
A French writer thus describes Francis
Joseph, or Austria : "The Emperor betrays that
kind of chronic melancholy which marks sadden
ed and declining reigns. He is Lull, and delicate
in health ; his gait is elegant and hesitating ; he
wears habitually the loose undress uniform of a
cavalry officer. His foot is small, but he has a
large hand ; the thurnbs are narrow and the nails
round. His gesture indicates certain embarrass
ment, not altogether devoid of dignity ; his head
is upright, long and well set ; bis whiskers are
fair and straight, and all tbe court wears tbeirs
in the same style ; his hair is bright auburn he
is bald on the back of his bead. His eyes are a
grayish blue and diamond shape ; sometimes they
sparkle with impatience, but soon settle again
into that look of dull resignation which seems to
be a characteristic of sovereigns who last long.
He has a ehorl optnrned nose, joined to a strong
firm and projecting mouth ; the short lip. cover
ed by a heavy mustache, the small and receding
chin constitute the family mark and peculiarity
'of the House of Lorraine, and of the Imperial
Princes of Uapsburg and Bohemia.''
