FOR MRS. HOLIES
An Important addition was made yes
terday to the real estate holdings In
Salt Lake City of Mrs. S. B. E. nolmes.
Mrs. Holmes purchased from the Home
Trust and Savings company the prop
erty on tho corner of North Stato and !
North Temple streets, having a front
age of SG feet on North Temple and 9C
foot on State. The price was $10,000.
The property was originally part of tho
Brlgham Young estate and was bought
some years ago from B. S. Young by
the Home Trust and Savings company.
One house on the property Is at present
occupied by Mrs. Margaret S. Roberts.
A terraoe occupies the corner. It forms
a valunblo addition to the real estate
now in the possession of Mrs. nolmes
in that part of the city, as she now
owns four corner lots: the Amelia Pal
ace, tho corner on which tho now
Kmery-Holmefl flat is- boing erected, tho
flats on the corner of State and First
street and this new property. It is not
yet known whether the last will be improved.

WADDELL IS GUILTY OF
Old Jury Falls to Agree, but a New Jury and a New Trial
Results in a Conviction on the First Charge
Against th: Convict.
Henry Waddell, one of tho leaders of
tho Jail-break nt the penitentiary last
October, was tried for the second time
'yesterday for having flred the shot
that struck tho irun In Guard Naylor's
hands, and was found guilty of the
chnrgo as set forth in tho Information.
Unlike the Jury of tho day before, which
could not ngTce upon a verdict, the
twclvo men who heard tho evidence in
the case yesterday were out only thirty
five minutes In coming to a decision.
The jury of Monday returned Into
court, yesterday morning and stated
that thero was no prospect of their
agreeing upon a verdict. Two of the
Jurors stood for acquittal and would
not change Iheir verdict. Judge Morse
ordered the men excused and a new
Jury was drawn. The new jury con
sisted of tho following named: F. M.
Lyman, Jr., Henry Wilson, A. Hanauer.
Jr., Thomas H. Smart, Jr., William
Healy, Ell L. Price, Charles J. Dan
serfleld and Ernest D. Simper.
The State presented a better case than
on the previous day by placing a col
ored convict upon the stand. In addi
tion to former Acting Warden Wright
and Guards Naylor and Wilcken, Dis
trict Attorney Elchnor Introduced the
testimony of William Clark, who is
serving a five-year sentence for felony.
Clark testified that from his cell on the
third floor he plainly saw Waddell come
to the window of the office and. rais
ing the gun. Are at Guard Naylor as
he came walking down the wall. Wit
ness stuted that his cell Is only about
twelve feet from the office window and
that it was light enough for him to
plainly see the face of the defendant.
After firing the shot, he said. Wad
dell slipped the gun in his coat pocket
and ran back. He was not shaken in
any way by Attorney McG'raw on cross
examination. WADDELL WAS EXCITED.
Waddell eyed the colored man In a
peculiar manner as he left the witness
ihair and whispered to his attorney to
nsk that the Oregon boot on his right
leg be removed while In court. Mr. Me
Graw stated to the court that the Iron
was chafing the prisoner's leg and
asked that it be taken off and his feet
chained Instead. It was immediately
surmised that the prisoner wanted to
get free long enough to make an at
tack upon Clark, and District Attor
ney Eichnor objected to freeing the
prisoner's foot. Tho defendant made
a vicious attack upon a witness who
testified against him at the time he was
convicted of the burglary charge for
which he is now serving time.
Waddell was arrested at Ogden, with
three others, on suspicion of burglar
izing Browning Bros.' gun store. The
State had but a flimsy case against the
men. The day before they were to be
brought out for triul a rellow who had
asked for lodging In the county jail was
placed In the cell next to the four sus
pects. The man, who was suffering
from a bad scalp wound, could not sleep
and during the night he heard the con
versations of Waddell and his fellows.
Upon his evidence they were convicted
In court next day.
AN EXPENSIVE CUSPIDOR.
As the prisoners were belne taken
from the courtroom by the Sheriff Wad
dell snatched up a large Iron cuspidor
and, with all his strength, hurled It at
the witness, barely missing his head.
When Waddell was brought up for sen
tence ho was given seven years for bur
glary nnd three years for assault.
Knowing Ihe bad character of the man
in this respect, It was deemed wise to
keep him in the boot, and the court de
nied the request of the prisoner's at
torney. Waddell took the stand again in his
own behalf nnd stoutly maintained that
he did not shoot at Naylor or any one
else on the night of the break. He
l stated that the plan to break had been
talked over for a week or two before
and that on October 9th Majors told
him at supper that it would be that
night. He said Majors gave him the
gun at that time. The defendant says
he held up Guard Wilcken with the de
fective gun nnd made Shuckers, the
pardoned convict, take his keys and
unlock the cell door for either Lynch or
Haworth. Wilcken, he said, was turned
over to the care of Abo Majors, nnd
that he went below with the others to
fc'et the ladders out and be ready for
the signal to break.
HONOR AMONG THIEVES.
"You expected to get over the wall?"
asked Mr. Elchnor, and the defendant
smiled as he answered, "I did get over
the wall." He said he had no coat or
ihat on. for the reason that they were
crowded too fast by tho guards. Mr.
Elchnor asked If it was not a part of
the plan to dlspoie of Guard Wilcken.
The witness appealed to Judge Morse,
but was told to answer the question.
He finally slated that the Intention waa
merely lo take a shot at Naylor and
make him run. It being: understood that
he would not stand Are. When Mr.
Eichnor said that Ihey (the convicts)
were all trying to shield one another,
AVnddell answered that a man can have
honor, no matter where he Is.
The Ave other convicts who testified
at the former trial were on the stand
again yesterday and testified much as
they did on Mondaj They all corrob
orated Waddell in his statement that
he had no coat on at the time of the
break. Majors objected to the questions
asked him on several occasions, and
was usually upheld by the court. He
admitted that he had forced Guard
Wilcken to signal Guard Naylor to come
out on the wall. He was sure thai
Waddell did not fire the shot at Nay
lor. but he objected to say who did.
Mr. Wright was called by the defence
and said that the guns used by the
convicts were in the possession of tho
prison officials. One of the weapons,
he slated, was defective, and he would
not be sure whether bath of the guns
had been discharged. The case was ur
sued and submitted to the jury nt 1M0
o clock In the- afternoon and ut fifteen
minutes after 5 o'clock a verdict had
It is understood that the defendant
will plead guilty to the other two In
formations against Jiim when the cases
come up this morning. He Is also ex
pected to waive time for the passing
of sentence, nnd if he does he will be
finally disposed of without further
waste of time.
It will slay till he pays. Our record

But they all grow lame with tho ser

tho grounds that Margotts had been act

"I lived In Salt Lake City during tho
old 'Liberal' fight on the encroachment of
the Mormon church," remarked a citizen,
"but I do not think there was so much
earnestness in the early part of that cam
paign as there Is being manifested now.
My Judgment Is that tho people of tho
Utah cities' will respond to the call of tho
prolcstants with great earnestness and
that Congress will soon find that Presi

said tho people of Utah endorsed the prac

The newspaper correspondent who sent

According to Prof. Clark, literature Is a
social study and not primarily a literary
subject to bo engaped In by "soft-headed
professors or women's clubs." Reading is
a question of morality and you can pretty
much tell tho standard of a community

us that man Is master of his fato and
