Its Trial Progresses Slowly
iii First District Court.
A NIGHT SESSION HELD.
Large Crowds Come Out Eegularly to
Hear tho Dfitails Defense Object to All
Proof of Forgery Offered Witnoados
Say Haxue ConfesaadHls Guilt.
The Hague case on trial in the First
District court still draws big crowds of
people other than attorneys and per
sons directly interested in the case,
eager to hear the evidence and argu
ments in this celebrated case in all us
detail. The impression lias gone out
that Alma Hague, hitherto known as
a big-hearted, honorable man is a de
faulter of many tens of thousands of
dollars and that the misappropriation
of funds was going on during all the
time he was before the public as an
enterprising, public-spirited, trusted
man a man liberal to the poor, a man
looked up to by all classes ot people,
idoliz d in fact by the public a man
thought so much of as to have honor
after honor crowded upon him by the
pnblic against his protest, cilices of
trust, mayor, probate judge, county
recorder, treasurer, legislator, etc.
and the crowds are anxious to hear
some of the particulars of how the mis
appropriation of largo sums of money
was conducted and concealed if the
mouey was misappropriated.
It is known that there have been
some fourteen indictments found
against Mr. Hague, Eome of which
have been quashed. The particular
indictment on which he is now being
tiied charges making false entry. The
prosecution alleges that this particu
lar false entry consisted of charging
up on the general balance book $57o.(J0
for a note purporting to be a discount
ed note when no tucli true note ex
isted, tha the note in question was a
torEed note, forged by Mr. Hacue, he
therefoie knowing the note to be a for
gery and the entry was per conse
qurnce, a false one. In proving this
the prosecution produces the alleced
forged note along with seven otberB al
so alleged to bo forged. The defense
insists that forgery cannot be proved
in thia trial of any one of the notes,
let alone eight, and this they watch
very closely all the way through and
interpose many objections wrich en
tails almost endless arguments.
In consequence the trial of the case
threatens to occupy several davs. In
view of this Judge Merritc has deemed
it advisable to hold night eessions of
court as well as dav spssions.
Ojr report closed jeste "day when O.
JLi. Hyde, who wps associated with Mr.
Hague as assistant cashier in the bank,
was placed on the stand as the second
witness for the prosecution. He testi
fied that he had been a bank clerk in
the National Bank of "N"ephi in 1893
and the early part of 1894. The testi
mony given by Mr. Hyde was mainly
corroborative of Mr, Whitmore's testi
mony. He recognized the writing in
the balance book, where the Ingram
brothers' note and other noteB were
entered as that of Mr. Hague and had
been present at the conversation be
tween Mr. Whitmore and Mr, Haguo
when the latter acknowledged that he
had misappropriated funds of the bank.
President Hill or the DeseretNation
al Bank was Jthird witness. Testi
fied that he was one of the directors of
the Pirst National Bank of Nephi from
its organization in 18S6 till last month.
In February 1S94 lie had a conversa
tion with Mr. Hague at Mr. Whit
more's house in Nephi. Witness
asked defendant if it were true that he
had misappropriated rhe funds of the
bank. Mr. Hague replied that it was
true; be explained that he had used
the money in real estate and mining
operations but that the resnrve fund of
the bank was intact. Upon being
asRed how he had manipulated the af
fairs of the bank in order to cover up
the misappropriation of the money, his
reply waB tbat ho had done it by credit
ing cash by fictitious no'es and by ma
nipula'ing the a count witbthe,DeS3ret
National bank. Witness Hills te"f'
fied that tne body of each of tho eight
alleged irregular notes in evidence was
written by Alma Hague.
Q Are you familiar with the hand
writing of Alma Hague?
A I am.
Q Who, in your opinion wrote the
signatures on these notes?
This question was obiected to by the
defense on the ground that defendant
was not charged with forgery aud the
effect of evidence of this kind would
be to convict or acauit of the crimo of
forgery. It was trying eight cases of
alleged forgery under an indictment
charging making false entry.
The prosecution insisted that the
evidence so far went to Bhow that
Hague had said he had covered up his
shortage by a certain irregularity, that
they therefore had the right to intro
duce this eyidence to Ehow what that
During the progress of the argument
on this objection adjournment was
taken until 7 :30 o'clock last evening.
At that hour the argument wa3 re
newed. Many cases and rulings of
courts were cited by both side3 and
much time was consumed. At 8:30 p.m.
Judge Merntt announced his decision
oy rrnl ng the objection. Mr. Hill
then answered the question by slating
tbat in his opinion the signatures to
the eight notes were written Dy Alma
The balance book was then shown to
the witness He testified that the "In
gram 13" entry would indicate that the
bank vbat day had received a note of
$575.00 signed by '-Ingram B." that

"Ingram B" owed the bank that much
money. Mr. Hill was asked what
books government msptctors exam
ined. Fifteen minuter time was oc
cupied in objections. Witness stated
tbat the general balance book is the
one inspectors usually examine first;
theie is no other book that will as
readily give them an insight into the
affairs of the bank.
Cross-examination 0. L. Hyde and
George Whitmore were present at the
house on February 11. 1894 when I
bad convareation with Mr. Hague; 1
have been interested in this case; have
not unreasonably urtjed the prosecu
tion; I did demand that Brown & Hen-
aerson oe aiscuargea as attorneys lor
the bank, because they were attorneys
for Hague; I wanted Hague convicted
because-1 think the offense justifies;
have guarded carefully this general
balance book; have had the alleged ir
regular notes in my possession and
have discussed them in meetings of the
boird of directors of the Nephi bank;
have been before the grand iurv on
this matter three times; have not ben
unduly biased aqainst Mr, Hague; haye
never heard any proposition to com
promise; don't think it ought to be
compromised; think the case merits
stern treatment of Mr. Hague by the
There is nothing in the language of
the note that indicates that Ingram
Brothers borrowed any money from
the bank; there is nothing in the en
tries anywhere in the books of the
bank that Ingram Brothers had bor
rowed 8575 00 from the bank ; entry in
dicates, however, that Ingram Broth
ers on January 3, 1894, owed the bank
that sum as indicated by u note that
the bank should have had in its pos
session; it indicates that the note was
made out In favor of W. I. Brown
and sold by Brown to the Dank; if
Brown did sell the note to the bank
th' entry is a true entry.
Adjournment was here taken until
The wholo of the time today has
ben occupied in the examination of
Director liricson who recounted a
confession of guilt made to him by
Hague, also his work on a committee
to examine into the affairs of the bank,
and of O. L. Rood aD expert on hand
writing, liis opinion is that the bod
ies and eiunatures of the eight alleged
irregular notes were written by one
hand. He is still on the stand.
