and moved for a nonsuit on the
grounds of insufficient evidence to con

PORTEH SENTENCED
Samuel Porter the Fairvi w post

how to step them Judge Judd ex
plained that it was not a question of
ibiiity in keeping books out of crime
appropriating to his own use money

he thought the offense merited a sub
stantial sentence Judge Smith said
that if there ever had been manifest in
all the doings of the defendant an intent

THIS MORNING
The case on trial is the People vs
George Hughes accused of robbery
W M Ichols is a iong lanky fellow
who has been in the saloon and gambl
ing business in many places in many
states particularly Wyoming but
who originally hails prom Texas At
present he is running a saloon and
gambling house on what is called the
strip in Uintah county three miles
east of Fort Du Chesne On cross ex
amination asked by Sam A King if
his gambling house is licensed he re
plied Well they come over there
regularly and fine me I give up the
stuff and they let me run Asked if
lie is not running a house of illfame
he replied U Well Hughes has as much
to do with that as 1 have May Gold
ing came out there and set up a hoard
ing house and he boards with her
From the evidence it seems that she
does the cooking in Nichols saloon
Nichols alleges that Hughes who is a
gambler by profession on the evening
of August 13th last came into his sa
loon and sat down to a game of Mexi
can monte He won 3200 and then
stood up at the bar and had several
drinks Then he sat down at another
table at which the same game was be
ing played and went broke Aftar
that he wanted to borrow money of
Nicholson his horse saddle blanket
and pistol which he did at two differ
ent times getting in all 6500aane
went out to another house and
played presumably he lost for some
time between the hours of 1 and 3
oclock in the morning of the 14th he
came back into Nichols saloon and
painting his gun at one of the Mexi
cans jaiied off what silver there was on
the table and put it into his pocket
Then he pointed the gun at Nichols
and Nichols not being ready to die
gave him up 6000 in gold he had on I
his person and then went into another
room and gave him 4500 more
Some corroborative evidence as the
taking of the uitney was introduced by
the prosecution During the taking of
this evidence it developed that Hughes
took 5300 from the table but Prose
cuting Attorney Judd stated to the
court and jury that he would not ask
for conviction on that count which
charges the offense of taking the
mon y that was lying upon the table
The defense represented that at the
time Hughes was very drunk and was
buncoed out of some 17500
and simply took back what was
his own Hughes testified that he
lost in the afternoon some 7500 and
in the evening S8000 or more of his
own money and 3500 that he bor

money from the table and Nichols

That Jepnblieau Secret
WASHINGTON D C Nov 2030me
few republicans in Washington who
have been looking toward Utah as
likely to send two senators who will
be tools for protective cormorants and
other republican favorites are some
what wildly hunting for Chairman Bab
cock
They have heard from Utah
In fact some republican politi
cians in Utah seem to nave gone very
wild
This is all because Chairman Bab
cock in a moment of temporary aber
ration gave away the republican secret
that an agreement had been forced by
republicans that Utahs senators and
representatives should not take their
seats in congress until 1897
Babcock is now in New York but
these anxious ones are laymf for him
primed to force bias too de fr that he
ever said such things Hi nay not
deny the truth of tne statements be
cause other besides the Herald corres
I pondent were present at the time ha
made them and took great interest in
the dispute as to the provisions of the
enabling act
However though it does not reflect
credit on them it is a hibit among
politicians to deny anything which has
created trouble and Babcock may deny
when h3 returns from Hew York All
senators representatives on the re
publican side who know of such in
side matters are closemouthed as
oysters
They have more sense than Babcock
and know that Utah republicans
perspiring in their endeavor to con
vince the people that the republicans
in congress fell all over one another
in their effort to force a triumphant
majority to action
Ikie Sunshine schooled them well on
this point but he could have devoted
more time to Babcock with great profit
