EXCITEMENT AT PROVO
I The feeling at Provo yesterday over
the developments connected with the
pad aeatn of Miss Bennett was most
Intense The retails given in The Her
ald were eagerly read and the affair
was generally considered as one of the
worst crimes ever committed in the
state Indeed so bitter was the feeling
that i looked as though virlence
wculd be done the perpetrators
All sorts of rumors were afloat and
i was learned that the body was In a
good state of preservation The phy
sicians who held the post mortem on
Thursday night had no difficulty in
J arriving at the fact that a criminal
operation had been performed
The impression that James Bonnett
the father of the girl wa absent from
Prove at the time of the funeral was
erroneous He was at home but was
unable to attend the last rites owing
to the fact that he was prostrated
ar > d unable to leave his toed
MISS BONNETTS MOVEMENTS
I is stated here that Miss Bonnett
left her home to go to Salt Lake on
February 17 but did not go until Feb
ruary 21 The question is where was
Miss Bonnett during the tnterxal be
tween the 17th and 21st I is said that
when she boarded the train for the
north she wore a thick heavy veil and
that certain men were with her
It Is also said that a certain doctor
of Provo was asked to take the case
and relieve the young lady of her
trouble Another doctor was offered
500 jf he would do the work I is also
said that 1x > th positively declined
Frank Carver the young man who i
f has been said wa to marry Miss Bon
nett in 1 very short time says that she
r came to her death by natural causes 1
cme
been foul The
4 zd there than uo play
I d
young man is much pitied there and 1
i is believed in Provo that he knows 1
nothing about the affair other than be I
ing present at her death
CROWDS GATHERED
At 6 oclock last evening crowds be
ganto gather on the streets of Provo
In each group was from twenty to one
hundred men and they talked in low
tones There was much suppressed ex
citement and the people were in a dan
gerous mood The Bonnetts are Ital
ians and the three brothers of the
deceased girl were eager for vengeance
gir
They openly stated that the Bonnett
family would be extinct before the re
sponsible ones should escape the fate
they deserved
The officers at Salt Lake tel
ephoned that warrants for the
arrest of Sims Duggins the
saloon keeper Frank Carter to
whom Miss Bonnett was engaged and
Dr Noyes would be down on the 630
train and these parties were closely
watched after being Informed of what
was coming and notified to prepare to
give bonds
DU gins immediately rushed to his
home and a large crowd collected
there while about a hundred men as
sembled near the court house When
Duggins was arrested and taken to the
court house the crowd followed a short
distance behind There was no dis
turbance but the prisoners wife was
kept between him and the crowd He
engaged D D Houtz to defend him
M 1 Warner who acted as Duggins
attorney in the recent adultery case
when the defendant was convicted re
fusing positively to represent him
ALL THINK NOYES INNOCENT
ALL
Duggins with Dr Noyes and
Frank Carter are all charged
with murder The feeling at
Provo seems concentrated against Dug
gins Carter who is Duggins barten
der is beleve to be innocent and ap
parently there is not a man in the
Garden City who believes Dr Noyes
guilty He is a man of high
standing and his reputation has always I
been of the best
He was brought Into the case in a pe
culiar way I will be remembered that
on Sunday night Miss Bonnett died
On the afternoon of the Saturday pre
ceding Carter telephoned to Provo
asking the doctor to come up He
complied reaching the bedside of the
sick girl a little after 6 oclock Satur
day evening when he saw her for the
first time in his life to know who she
was He at once saw that she was dy
ing and so stated Dr McCoy he
learned had bee attending her but
another physician described as being a
slender man and prematurely aged had
it was stated previously been in con
sultation with Dr McCoy
THE MEDICAL LAW I
SOME STARTLING ACCUSATIONS
MADE DY DOCTOR DOGGE v
Hands in a List of Names of Pa
tients Alleged to Have Been
Killed By Incompetent Phywlcians
The house committee on public health I
helda meeting last evening to consid I
er proposed amendments to the law
regulating practice of medicine and
surgery in this state Six or seven
physicians including Drs Dogge Has
brouck Johnson and others attended
for the purpose of presenting their
views on desirable changes in the law
as it now exists
Some of the remarks made by the
disciples of Esculapius were exceeding
ly radical one gentleman Dr Dogge
going so far as to hand in a list of
the names of patients who he alleged
had been murdered by incompetent and I
ignorant physicians The doctor even
went so far as to append the names of
some of the physicians who he said
were thus guilty The Herald would not
publish these names o the mere as
sertion df anybody as it might do a
I gross injustice but all the same the
t I session was an exceedingly warm one

MADRID March6 As G result of
the publication inEl Dla that the
Spanish minister at Washington had I
notified the government that President
Cleveland would veto a Cuban reso
lution a statement was made today
from an authoritative source as to the
extent of information received from
the minister at Washington I shows
that he has kept the government fully
advised of all actual developments but
has not anticipated anything in any
branch Up to the present time the
minister has not informed the govern
ment that the president will veto the
Cuban resolution nor is he informed
so far a the government knows what
the future course of the executive
authorities at Washington will be At
the same time the ministry has access
to the dispatches received by the news
agencies at Paris London and Mad
rid and some of these recent dis
patches widely published throughout
Europe as indicating the probable
course of the administrative authori
ties at Washington have borne the
stamp of authenticity and have been
accepted as semiofficial and authorita
tive They have been regarded by of
ficials as well as by the general public
as correctly forecasting the probable
course of the Washington authorities
To these the Spanish minister at
Washington has not added his official
advice nor has he stated that he ha
any assurance a to the future of the
CuLan resolutions
Official advices from Havana show
that Maceo ha made a bold march
to the north with a view to meeting
Calixto Garcia who was expected to
arrive with arms < and ammunition
After learning that the Garcia expedi
tion was a failure Maceo was unable
to move eastward or to reach the
southern everglades and was com
pelled to move west into Havana ra
n
It is believed that this purpose was I
in part a feint to prevent the reinforce
ments arriving at Havana from carry
ing out their projected movements No
uneasiness Is felt at the presence of
Maceo in Havana province He has
failed to effect a juncture with Gomez
and is 200 miles separated from him
Velers Brass Band Act
HAVANA March Copyrighted
1S96 by the Associated PressThe
captaingeneral of Cuba General
Valeraino Weyler has issued another
important proclamation of which the
following is a translation
My attention has been drawn to the
frequency with which the civil and
military officers and the army officers
in the country and towns proceed to
arrest citizens who are afterwards
placed at my disposal to be deported
from the island without reasonable
cause for such measures and having
pointed out in my previous circulars
the charges pertaining to war juris
diction and the formalities for trials I
have decided to exact in accordance
with said circulars that arrests must
be justified with all reasons and proofs
possible so as to proceed with all jus
tice against the prisoners r
Therefore the authorities and army
officers will so order in every case of
every one who is arrested without
proofs enough to establish his guilt
guI
Written information must be made
with all the facts that can possibly be
had through verbal
or confidential in
formation
These requisites will be more exact
ing in the towns where all loyal peo
ple must contribute to them a safety
there is greater and as in so doing
they will assist the authorities to re
establish order and peace toy co
operating in a strict compliance with
justice for which a line has been
traced by me
These informations and material
proofs will be sent to
wi this office to pro
ceed accordingly i being understood
that I will hold strictly responsible
any officer who does not furnish the
proofs required in the cases mpnHnnnr
On the occasion of a visit which
General Veyier paid to the Casino and
opera here today the president Fran
cisco Santos Guzman in receiving his
distinguished visitor made a short ad
dress in the course of which he said
I have come in the name of the Ca
sino to protest against the injurious
calumnies of some American senators
toward Spain and toward her worthy
representatives of this island and at
the same time to protest against the
resolutions of both houses of the Uni
ted States congress in favor of recog
nizing as belligerents hordes of rebels
In so doing they are voting against
the rights of our people and with man
ifest lack of consideration for Spanish
loyalty and friendship We reiterate
our unconditional adhesion to the gov
ernment of Spain and to the person or
her worthy representative at whose
side we are and will be with all we
have al
I General Weyler in reply thanked the
Casino for its loyal sentiments and
assured the members that their sup
port would be utilized when needed
The general also said e regretted the
hostility which some United States sen
ators exhibited toward Spain especial
ly he explained as the Spanish au
thorities on this Island treat citizens
of the United States with
Unied ih more con
sideration and assign to them more
prerogatives than to any other people
In spite of this he said hostility was
manifested toward Spain In the
meanwhile continued General Weyler
he hoped President Cleveland would
persevere in his attitude of opposi
tion to the resolutions
In conclusion the
captaingeneral re
f d
marked There is nofreason why the
good friendship between the two na
tions should be altered
There is no truth in the report in
circulation that General Weyler has
resigned the position captaingeneral
of the island of Cuba In official cir
cles i Is alleged that on the contrary
General Weyler possesses the entire I
confidence of the Spanish government I
Colonel Galvis yesterday was en I
gaged near Macagua province of Ma
tanzas with the insurgent forces of
Maximo Gomez causing considerable
I loss to the enemy
Maceo is said to be moving toward
the province of Matanzas This is said
here to be proof that he has suffered
great loss in addition to being short
of ammunition

WASHINGTON March 6A scheme
of vast importance to all persons in
terested in the preservation of the for
est lands of the United States is out
lined in a report of the National Acad
emy of Science to the secretary of the
interior who had asked the academy
to recommend feasible and comprehen

appointed n commission of notable
scientists to make an investigation of
the forestry problem in all its phases
and Secretary Hoke Smith will take
steps immediately to afford all possible
assistance to the commission and will
wi
recommend to congress < the appropria
tion of 25000 to cover actual expenses

ject of deep consideration by many
officials of the government and special
interest in the problem has been taken
by Secretary Smith

I manently as forest lands those por

of forest upon climatic soil and water
conditions make desirable a policy of
forest conservation in regions where
the public domain is principally sit
uated
Third What specific legislation
I should be enacted to remedy the evils
now confessedly existing
In Professor Gibbs reply ic the sec
I retarys letter he said that no subject

opinion of thoughtful men that no
other economic problem confronting

1overnment
equalled in importance that offered by
the present condition and future fate
of the forests of western North Amer

The Angry Romuns I
ROME March 6The rioting caused I I
by the anger of the people at the con i
duct of the Abyssinian campaign was i
continued last night in nearly every I i
iI
large city of Italy altnough the rain I I
storm cleared the streets of the capi I I

jiojers went to the railway station j I I
with the Intention of prev nlng the I I
departure from Milan of the army re i
serve of that city and neighborhood f I
belonging to class 1872 But the au I I
thorities kept the men in the barracks
and sent a regiment of infantry to I
guard the railroad station I
These precautions only increased the
excitement of the mob leaders and an I I
attempt was made to break into the
depot Sharp encounters followed The
soldiers and carabinieri were
I PELTED WITH STONES
and bayonets and swords were used to
drive back the crowds Some soldiers
and policemen were injured 2j1d scores
of rioters slightly wounded The dis I
turbances continued until 2 a m
when the troops at the point of the
bayonet had cleared the railroad sta
tion and neighborhood of rioters and
established a cordon of soldiers around

all the approaches
There is today a marked improve
ment in the demeanor of the populace
A proclamation by the mayor enjoined
the inhabitants of Rome to be calm
and avoid assemblages which would
tend to develop riotous demonstration
Business is I proceeding as usual and
the only evidences here of the recent
disturbances are strong additional
guards of soldiers about the palace and
all public buildings
There was serious rioting at Parma
last night The municipal buildings
were besieged by angry mobs the
windows smashed and the troops fred
a volley over the heads of the most
riotous mobs The rioters then scat
tered pursued by the carabinlera who
succeeded in arresting several leaders
of the disturbances They will be
kept prisoners until the popular ex
citement subsides
A group of members o the Right party

PUSHING REINFORCEMENTS
The work qf dispatching reinforce
ments to Massovah is being pushed with
praiseworthy vigor On board the char
tered transports gangs of men relieve
releve
each other so that the fitting out of
these vessels is continued day and night
The army reserve men of the class of
3872 just called to the colors vlll
cale colors wi as
soon a equipped relieve regiments now
doing garrison duty and the soldiers thus
rendered available for active service will
be shipped to Africa as rapidly as pos
sible unless the incoming ministry
makes a complete change In the colonial
policy of the country as advocated by
many prominent men and it is deter
mined to make peace at any price with
i the Abyssinians wih
Among the military men there is a
strong sentiment in favor of pushing the
campaign in Africa to the utmost even
If it Is necessary to call out all the army
reserves and send 150000 additional
troops to Africa But the sober minded
representatives of the business commun
ity advocate a policy of peace even if it
is necessary for Italys pride to suffer in
order to obtain these ends The masses
as a rule are opposed to any further
sacrifice of the lives of Italian soldiers
and they are in sympathy with those
who favor a complete change in the col
onial policy of Italy
ALARM FOR THE FINANCIERS
In the meanwhile the financial situation
I is alarming and this it is hoped Inay
have the effect of bringing about the
adoption of a policy of conciliation and
economy
The students of Pisa Invaded the rail
road station here last evening as a re
sult of 2 report having been circulated
that the artillery of the garrison of that
place was to be transferred to Naples for
shipment to Africa They marched to the
depot shouting Down with Crispi Get
u back our soldiers Death to Bara
tieri etc
A strong force of police was sent to
i the station and the students were dis
persed
A projected demonstration at the capi
tal tonight proved to be insignificant
pove
The few speeches were made by radical
leaders but to only a sparse audience
The police prevented anyone from obtain
ing a entrance tO the capitol
Dispatches from Massowah to the
Italian papers show that the Italians
fought bravely at Adowa and obeyed
orders wherever they were well led
But they were badly organized and
e
I there was no direct control over the I
distribution of the forces
General Arhnondi and Colonel Cal
liano with 300 white soldiers are now
reported to be prisoners In the hands
of the Shoans
I is reported that Cassala is now
surrounded by the Dervishes
According to the Italia Militaire the
Italian losses amounted to 4500 of
whom 3000 belonged to General Alber

I is positively ascertained that Gen
eral Dabormida Is dead The only
thing known of General Albertone Is
that he fell wounded in the attack
The Opinlone states that General
Baldissera has telegraphed the gov
ernment that the situation is very ser
ous and that he can do nothing to re
lieve Adigrat He wants means to
strengthen the position of Asmara
The government has replied leaving
him liberty of action but begging him
not to engage the enemy except in case
of extreme necessity
Dervishes Cut the WIres
LONDON March 7A dispatch to
the Times from Cairo says I
The Abyssinians or the Devishes i
have cut the wires between Cassala
