John Connelly
PERSECUTION PROSECUTION
TheGrand Jury Minus a Witness who
Takes the Underground Rail
way and is Non Est
It was whispered abroad yesterday
that Mr John Connelly the gentleman
who was recently acquitted of the
charge of polygamy by reason of his
having been married before the passage
of the Edmunds law under which he
was tried was to be again arrested and
put upon trial for unlawful cohabita
tion The rumor gave it out that he
and others had been summoned before
the Grand Jury and tracing up the
report to one of its sources a HERALD
reporter obtained the following infor
mation
On Thursday evening last Deputy Mar
shal Ferguson called at Mr Connellys
store and subpoenaed Annie Gallifant
and Sarah and Barney Gallifant to ap
pear Friday afternoon before the Grand
Jury They with Mr Connelly were
promptly on hand at the witness room
where they found Messrs Nichols and
Diehl who were on the jury when Mr
Connelly was tried Annie Gallifaut
was examined and afterward informed
Mr Connelly that she had refused to
answer certain leading questions in re
lation to him whereupon she had been
dismissed As she and Mr Connelly
were leaving the room Mr Varian
entered it On learning that she had
refused to answer the interrogatories of
the jury Mr Connelly was under the
impression that that would not be the
end of that matter and consequently
induced her to procure apassage on the
underground railway which she at once
I did and left for narts unknown We
said that as the two just named left the
room Mr Varian entered and we were
right In an excited manner he asked
for Annie first and then for Connelly
and judging from the racKet inside
a person on the outside would have sup
posed he was raising Ned because
the inquisitors had allowed her
to leave after committing contempt and
this supposition was strengthened by
what followed About an hour after
ward Deputies Ferguson and McCurdy
visited Connellvs store and asked for
the fugitive Annie and were informed
that she boarded one of the cars on Mr
Variaus railway and was non et
Where she was he did not know she
was not at home Had they found her
it was surmised she doubtless would
have been penned for her contempt
A day or two ago Mr Connelly got
wind of a circumstance which has led
him to the belief that the present move
to harrass him and deprive him of his
liberty is the result of a feeling of ani
mosity engendered by some friends or
his sister with whom it will be remem I
bered he had some difficulty at the time
of the Miles trial He learned that an
official connected with the Third Dis
trict Court remarked that he kept his
business very quiet and would in all
probability never have been troubled if
he had not quarreled with his sister1 j
but her friends were now going to see
this case through and put him in the
Pen if it were possible This story he
heard reiterated in another quarter
with the addition that those secret and
treacherous enemies who were
interested in persecuting him
had enlisted the counsel for
the prosecution in their behalf
The were seemingly determined to do
all in theirpower incarcerate him j they
everything on their side favorable
toward attaining that enda judge and
a willing prosecuing attorney
On the face of it with the preceding
evidences of persistence in pushing this
second caseIt smacks somewhat of per
secution and is not free from a taint of i
revenge on the part of those U honest
and straightforward American gentle
men whose ire he has apparently
raided f 1

The Judges Decide that Mr Claw

Eudger Clawson was in courtyejter
day at2 oclbdk and sat calm andJMii
perturbable asever to hear the decision
whic1 Vas to give him his liber or
Send him back again to the companion
ship of murderers and thieves A few
formalities having been disposed of the
two Judges Hon P H Emerson being
absentconferred for a moment and
Judge Twiss then read the opinion He
briefly went over the circumstances in
the now famous case and read the
statutes governing it The only ques
tion he said for the consideration of
the Court was whether petitioner had
a right to be admitted to bail pending
the appeal to thisthe Supreme Court
He would not say that under no cir
cumstances should bail be allowed but
he held that in this case sufficient rea
son had not been shown for it and the
decision remanding the defendant to
the custody of the Marshal must be
confirmed This Judge Twiss said
was the opinion arrived at by the Chief
I Justice and both associates Mr Claw
i son did not manifest the least emotion
I as this renewal of his sentence was ut
tered although the writer has reason to
know that lIe had built considerable
hope upon the fine argument of Mr
Kir kpa trick
Immediately after the rendering of
the decision F S Richards counsel for
defendant arose and asked that the
amount bonds be fixed for costs of an
appeal from this ruling to the Supreme
Court of the United States The amount
was fixed at 200
A HERALD reporter interrupted Mr
Richards and his client for a moment as
they spoke together at the conclusion of
court to ask what would be the next
move in the matter Mr Richards an
swered that the habea corpus would be
appealed to the Supreme Court of the
United States and that it would be ad
vanced on the docket of that court
Just how long before it could be heard
Mr Richards did not know but it is
certain to be several months before it
can be taken up Mr Clawson went

A SNIDE JOLLIFICATION
The Liberal Democrats of Ogden
Had One Last Night
The evening of Saturday November
15th will be memorable in the history
of the Junction City as a time when
the enthusiasm of its resident Lib
eral antiMormon Democrats found
vent in jollification there A few verv
I I tenwe are informed of the element
I mentioned assembled in front of the
Broom hotel at the period of Ogdens
existence indicated above They met to
celebrate to jollify to glorify over the
election of Cleveland andHendricks But
their expectationsif they were realized
were faint and dim for they were cele I
brating perhaps inadvertently the
downfall of all they rely upon to con
tinue their infamous rule in the Terri
tories The Democratic President and
Congress will give us as much of local
selfgovernment as possible and this
means an early immigration ot carpet
baggers to places where they can ac
complish less mischief than here It
was a snide thin spiritless affair not

THE PRINCIPLE OF CREDITS
Observations During the Course of a
Visit to the Southern Dis
trict
From nnOccisional Correspondent
In spite of all that is said about hard
times and the general stagnation of
business the farmers of Southern Utah
do not stand in need of a great deal of
commisseration Their granaries are
filled full to overflowing sothat neither
man nor beast need go hungry during
the coming year They have comfort
able homes the best of shelter for stock j
fuel cheap and abundant and for the
products of the dairy and the poultry
yard prices are high enough in all con i
science
I have passed through the whole
length of the Sanpete Valley recently
Most people know why the superintend
ent of Bradstreets travels and what
is the nature of his investigations All
the difficulties of business are talked
over the causes of hard times and the
prospects for better and while he deals
with individuals he cannot fail to gather
a good deal of information useful in
framing conclusions involving the gen
eral welfare I have returned to Salt
Lake believing that the merchants of
Southern Utah are as little entitled to
sympathy as the farmers though they
need it far more The majority have
more goods trusted out than lie upon
their shelves many have twice as much
out on credit as the amount of their
entire capital some few have precious
little leftbut book accounts or tnemosi I
uncertain value These last are the in
curable maniacs of trade and the soon r I
they are mustered out of business the
better for all concerned The wholesale
merchants can better stand a moderate
loss now than a larger one by and by
rhe majority of the country mer
chants began to see stars early last
spring and cut off to a large extent the
credit business All these have steadily
improved during the year and owe less
in Salt Lake than usual They are buy
ing less and with reasonable patience
on the part of wholesale dealers they
will come out in gobd shape A select
few insisted en restricting the credit
business two years ago and these are
the fellows who come into Salt Lake
masters of the situations discount their
bills and get a carload of goods for a
very small amount of money
A strictly cash business is simply an
impossibility credit is one of the inventions
I
ventions of civilization and is founded
on the greater stability of character
that marks this generation over its pre
decessors But safe mercantile credit is
short credit and short credit is just as
practicable in the country as in the
town So far as my acquaintance extend
tends I am convinced that Abram Hatch
of VIeber Wasatch County J is the best
country merchant in Utah He suc
cessfully established the thirty nnl ttv
day credit system in Wasat County
three years ago and its benofi ir seen
not only in the prosperi u lurmer I
chant but which is teiit uore im
portent in the prosperiM Hi c he people
of that vicinity
The farmer usuall I three re
sources His live stol tv hu butter eggs
and poultry and his grain Whoever I
I has these three sources of income mod
erately at hand will never suffer serious
1 ly for they are never all depressed Two i
of these now bring all that can reason 1
ably be asked while the third grain I
is cheap but its cheapness insures low
I
price labor and thus brings largely its I
own compensation I 1
The farmers of Sanpete Valley are
eagerly looking for the extension of the
narrowguage railroad to Manti and I 1 I
hope they will not be disappointed A
strictly local railroad managed on I I
business principles is usually not only
a reasonably profitable property but is
of special value to the people I have
been interested recently in reading of
the experience of three New England
local railroad They were doing nicely I j
on a strictly local business One of
them got an ambition tojoin a Great
Through Linemade a double track
and trebled its equipment handled
millions of tons or western freight to
the seaboard and did a rushing busi
ness But it paid no dividends The
other local roads looked on andpro
tited
The Latterday Saints have good
houses of worship in everv town and
hamlet of this valley and in nearly
every village from Nephi to Richfield
there is a handsome Presbyterian
Church This suits me as a business
man There can be no permanent
prosperity where religious rancor pre
vents neighbors from living in mutual
goodwill and charity and where there
is astinted welcome tosettlers of diverse
faith C A C

The examination in the abortion case

yesterday at noon the result being that
the defendants Dr Fowler and J W
Irons were held to answer to the grand
jury with bail fixed at oOOO each
The witnes cb called upon to testify
were Mrs Pratt and Dr Hamilton
The firstnamed was questioned upon
two or three unimportant points and
excused The latter was asked as to
the nature of the instrumentalleged to
have been used by Dr Fowler shortly
Iefore the abortion charged was
obtained He said that in a case of
pregnancy the implements used would
be very dangerous and that their use in
such a case was looked upon as repre
hensible by the profession Objection
was raied after coniderable testimony
had been given to the witness stating
what condition he found the patient in
when he examined her on Tuesday last
The objection was urged because of a
violation of confidence between patients
and physicians and Justice Speirs ruled
it was inadmissible
When the examination of these wit =
nesses was ended counsel for the
defense stated that they did not wish to
introduce any testimony No argu
ments were made and the justice

LAsT EIGHT shortly after 10 oclock as
ilr E E Holt chief clerk in the U 1
office was leisurely strolling along
near the corner of Seventh and Spring
streets he was suddenly startled b two
men springing out irom the almost
impenetrable darkness and confronting
him with the terrifying salutation to
Halt or die Although Mr Holt was
taken at a disadvantage and was
entirely unarmed he is possessed of an
indomitable nerve and a fearless dis
position and is consequently not easily
frightened Upon being hailed in this
abrupt manner he dew from his pocket
a harmless bunch of keys and flourish
ing them in the air swore that he would
shoot the first man that attempted to
impede the freedom of his passage Mr
Holts courageous action terrified the
rascals and not being able to preceive
through the dense darkness what par
ticular piece of artillery he was threat
ening them with the baffled and
o ardlT villains hun l made an
ignominious reiieai It is barely possi
ble that they are continuing their flight
lup to the present moment but hardly
fast enough to escape the unmerciful
grasp of the law I which is slowly
and surely closing around the3e
felons and making rapid strides
towards the extermination of the
band of midnight robbers who
are at present infestin Ogden
If others would exhibit A similar degree
of courage on occasions of this Kina as
did Mr Holt these desperate wretches
would soon cease to ply their vocation I
in Ogden and would retire to other
climes which would be more congenial
to their spirits and more conducive to
the prosperity of their particular line of
business

I SEEING THE TIGER
Night in One of Our Ill
famous Palaces
THE GAMBLER AT HIS fORK
Views ami Impressions of a Reports
Who Made His First Visit to
a Faro Bank
As a HERALD reporter was lazily
sauntering
tering down Main street last night
shortly after the old town clock had
slowly tolled out the mystic and holy
hour of twelve he was accosted by one
of those night owls commonly de ig
nated as rounders who stated in re
ply to a question that he was intend
ing to go and see the boys at the club
rooms As we expressed a desire to
ccompany him he proffered his guid
ance in giving us a glimpse at the king
feline Ascending a short staircase we
halted on the landing and gave three
resounding raps on a door which obstructed
structed our farther passage The din
and hum of voices inside was for a mo
ment slightly hushed and a confused 1
shuffling of feet could be slightly heard
In a few minutes the cover to a small
round aperture in one of the panels
was cautiously pushed aside and a well J
known sporting man peered anxiously
out He appeared doubtful and
undecided as to whether it was
advisable and afe to admit the
writer but our companion soon
dispelled his doubts by hastily
assuring him that all wa righ and
hesitating no longer he shot back the
bolt and permitted us to enter Upon
gaining the interior of this gilded
palace of vice we stopped dazzled with
amazement and almost blinded by the
sudden transition from utter darkness
to the most brilliant light As soon as
the paralyzed nerves of our oPtiCs crew
accustomed to the change and we
were enabled to discern misty
figures through the dense tobacco
smoke and the steaming fumes
of vile liquor we pushed our way
through the 110is surging crowd until
we arrived at thecentre of attraction
the faro bank around which was
grouped a most motley crew Immedi
iately on the right of the calm and im
perturbable dealer we recognized the
placid and undisturbed features of one
of Salt Lake professional gambler
He very coolly and composedly played
his game and whether he won or lost
treated both with the most profound
indifference At his side was seated an
employee of one of our dry goods estab
lishments who with blanched cheeks
hollow eyes and tightly clenched lips
would lay down his coin and see it in
evitably swallowed up and absorbed by 4
the banker The merchant was also
represented from the haggard death
like pallor which was gradually over
spreading his face it was quite probable
to suppose that the greater portion of
his days sales was staked on the turn
of the next card The animated I
countenance of one of our most promi
nent professional men exhibited but
little anxiety or impatience as he ap
p > ared to be coming out successfully In
his encounter with the tiger The
I Hebrew citizen gazed wistfully at the
dealer and his determined and haunted
I glance expressed most eloquently that
he was nearing omfortablv close to I
I the bottom of his pile Probably the
most selfpossessed person seated
I around the table was a rollicking cow
boy who wa recklessly covering the I
carets with chips of the most valuable j
I color and was evidently pros I
pering in playing his wild
system The unrufileu and calculating I
g imblcr now arose and pushed over to
the cashier his gigantic stack of chips
He pocketed his winnings with a self J
satisfied air and lighting a fragrant
Havana commenced strolling through
the room apparently watching for an
opportunity to engage in one of the
side or smaller games where amateurs
or suckers were more plentiful and hi1
chances for profits increased The
clerk and buMnes man retired to their
homes to dream perhaps of the good
fortune which must surety attend them
the following night Daylight was fast
approaching in the east and the dealer
announced that the bank was closed
un til the morrow His remaining patrons
I arose and vainly endeavored to shake
oft the fascinating glamor of his
presence and with visions of untold
wealth floating before them in the twi
light of dreamy reverie they sought
their much needed rest The crowd was
now fast thinning out and disappear
ins The curiosity t of the reporter
being gratified he accompanied them
and went to his home to philosophize
moralize and pity the unfortunates for
whom the faro bank possesses such an I
irresistible attraction C
