An article appeared In tho issue of your paper of January 13 In reference to the application for a new trial of tho case of the State vs. James M. Shockley, which Is misleading, and does me as his eounsol, an Injustice. Tho article referred to Mated among other things, that a new ground had been dp-covered svhli h Is to be urged for tie purpose of obtaining for him a retrial of his case; that tho additional ground relied on vas that the fit court of Rait Lake had no jurisdiction to conduct the 1 r. llmlnary hearing of the ca.se. The ar tlrio further stated that tho objection was now made for the first tlmo and that an attorney nit connected with the case had tlrst suggested the point In mo and pre sumably at a recent date, and that I would now act on It. Tho facts are that at the time of tho preliminary hearing I urged this very same objection before Judge c H Dlehi the objection being that he had no Juiis dtctlOfl as a curt to conduct tho prelim inary hearing The court ruled on the question adversely to my contention Mv objection was made a part of the written record to the ease. I then believed as T still contend, that the dty court acted without Jurisdiction In this case as a com miiiing magistrate I kno-w that your paper would not ln tentionally do me an Injustice and I therefore take this method of correcting the error.

New Bonds in Each Case Would Keep Him Guessing. Some of the Losers Are Disheartened, but Others Propose to Push the Prosecution. According to a statement made by County Attorney Chrlstenscn yesterday afternoon, It Is In the. power of each and every one of th? creditors of B H Schet tler to cause his arrenl on a charge of felony, but whether or not a separate b ind would bo required would depend upon the decision of tho Judgo before whom the complaint was made. If a bond of JIAOOO were required In each Instance, and fifty or Rlxty creditors mado complaints, it would keep tho Inaolvxnt banker guessing to secure bondsmen, and this state of affairs may eventually be brought about Telephone lln ih were kept busy Friday night between the hones of Schettler's creditors who can afford such luxuries, talking about his orr.-st, and it seemed to be tho general wish of all that the bonds be placed so high that he would be unable to secure his release Creditors Are Unsympathetic. "Of course we want our money," said one, "but there Is a c rtaln amount of sat isfaction In feeing the man who got our money placed behind th bars. As far OS hla family Is concerned, we havo no par ticular grievance, as the old gentleman conducted his own affairs and required no assistance in working on our feelings and getting our money He Is an old man to bo sure, but It might be added tnat most of his creditors are old too, and many of them aro far more feeble than he Is todny." Many Creditors Discouraged hen it was learned that bondsmen had been sc, ire l, and that prominent mem bers of the Mormon church were coming to his rescue with their wealth, many of the creditors threw up both hands BO to speak, and now Kem to despair of secur ing either revenge or anything like a fair settlement The moro determined how over, say that the case will bo fought to thi bitter end and that after every cent possible has been secured for the deposi tors, a penitentiary sentence will sureH await SchclUcr. ANDERSON IN LIME-LIGHT. His Conduct in Schettler Bank Case Now Much Discussed. The facts brought out through on In terview with B H Schettler, his wife Mary and Receiver R R. Andi rson, show ing thrt R, It Anderson had aided In pre venting criminal proceedings I i n IniUI tulid'by Caroline Thompson last i u toher Wi re subjects of much discussion yes terday. So was the statement made by B H and Mary Schettler that they had been ad vised by a church official to see R. R. Anderson about the trouble before Ander son was appointed receiver in connection with this is the statement by the Schet tlers that R. R. Anderson had advised against the selling of certain real estate to tide the bank over the crisis. Anderson admitted to The Tribune that he had assisted In the paelf-slng of Caro line Thompion. tho $200 depositor, but he snys ho did not ad as receiver He de Cllned to say to Tho Trlbuno whether he was acting a-s agent for tho depositor or for Schettler, but is quoted by an after noon paper as saying h- acted u-s agttlt for Schettl'-r Shortly after R. R. Anderson's appolnt-rn-M.t. according to statements now made by tho Schettlers, the receiver was In clined to bo exceedingly friendly to I li K-banker, until tho depositors raised a storin. Then, as the Svhettlers say. he Joined in tine agitation and has added "fuel to the Humes " These matti ra and other circumstances that have developed have brought some vigorous criticism to bear on Receiver FL R. Anderson, and there are many who are now saying a change In receivers would be advisable As Individual, Not Receiver. Receiver Anderson sas he acted as an Individual in securing the settle ment of the Parollne Thompson inm, slgnfed the receipt for the money, how ever, as R. R. Anderson Receiver" 8ome are now aklngr if R R Ander sen s aot lu urging the Schottlers to raise the money for Caroline Thompson, as ho admits, to prevent her carrying out tho throat to prosecute Schettler, W( re not In fact tho compounding of felony. Ander son stoutly maiutalns that he did not uct as an officer of the court. He eavs his Interest in the matter was the Inter si of the depositors that ho wanted B H Schettler to assist him In straightening OUt tho affairs of the defunct bank. Asked If Schettler arrest would pre vent him from conferring with tha ex banker, he said ho "had not thought of It in that light ' There ta a. contention now that R. R Andorson acted a very unwise part, at e i In this settlement with Caroline Thompson. His explanation that he did ma want the banker arrested becauso ho needed his services jB idUphed at. Up to a few we ks ago Anderson and Schet tler were so busy and so persistent In "bothering" each other that It wha nau Bi itlng to some who had observed the matter Thi ex-banker's arrest could not havo altered the friendly relationship, it Is believed between Schettler and Ander son. The break In their friendship Is due to the fact 'ht the rocelver has rep' it edl declared publicly and privately that the banker knew he was insolvent when he accepted deposits, and hecausA the rc. celver U alleged to have underestimated tho value of the banker's assets Anderson's Excuse Dissected. An arrest not caused by the receiver himself could not. it is urged, have In- i.rfered In the b-.tst In the sen lr, Ander son expected to receive from n n srh- t tler. He Is now put In one or two un envlable attitudes The favoring of one depositor over others or the shielding of the man from arrest for an alleged felony ho now says there Is proof to sustain. Comment Is heard on the fnct that J F Glbbs. the polygamous secretary of the I'rst presidency has stood between the polygamous ex-b, inker and the prison doors.

Ho wet at a bar meeting In this city on tho evening of tho 9th Inst. I deeply regret hla arraignment of Howarth. especially oa ho nought to have hla etatomont appear at thouch It was limply voicing tho consenaua of public opinion an 1 for thu further reason thet, at thin particu lar time, thero Is pending un application for Howarth's pardon which those who are In a position to know all the ground as a bonis for thin application feel should prevail Under ordinary c IreurastanCM I would nut seek an opportunity to have you publish my version nf Uila case, but recognizing as I do that the gentleman to whom I refer. Judge llowit i a moat prominent, trustworthy citizen end ubio lawyer, i fajel thut his statement might create In the minds of tho people of thla Stuto h passion and prejudice that mlcht re dound greatly to Howurth'a Injury and dd,ir Mm from hla right ahould It ultimately bo eetabllahed that ho Is nn Innocent m;in As above Intimated, I was not foromoat In hln lefone at tho trial, nor was I eu'-h at tho appllcatliin beforo th Hoard of Pardons for commutation of sentence nor tn I at this time participating partlrulurly in his present application for a full and uncondllluaal par den. I never aaw Howarth In my life ss I now recall, until the day when ho wa brought Into court at Farnilngton, Psvta county. In which county the erlme charged against hlrn wiu Committed, iuid moro than this I was I not acquainted with any person or persons ; save and ex.-r-pt hie brother, who a few day9 prior to this culled to seo me, preparatory to my acting os attorney for him with Mr. Webber. I wuj very much surprined at tho feeling that existed ognlnt Howarth In that county and at tho very outset felt that It was far cical to try hla case there. Mr Webber had made a very' earnest effort for a change of venue, but tho court overruled tho motion, whether Justly or not I am content to leave II to the records of tho caso. However wo were compelled to und did examine nearly three hundred Jurors before we could And twelve men who could answer that there was no prejudice in their minds against Howarth. This vast number of Jurors Would be very unusual even In a county having tn times tho population that Davis county has. and In Itself would clearly establish the faet that there WSJ efry gr;at feeling and prejudice luralnst tho defendant, throughout that entire coilnlv Tho enso occupied well on to ono month and I venture the assertion that there Is not any person In tho Stato of Utah, outside of the parties who were directly connotcl with the trial, who could traeri.e the history' of that case, and unless a person could do this I feel that he would hardly b warranted In voicing a very serious opinion as to the status of it. Certainly ono who does net know nil tho facts would not I fully competent to proclaim and have his proclamation carried Into effect that Howarth should havo been executed. I dealro that the public should know o few of tho salh nt points In this caso and to ho fair In tho matter I will not confine my Statement to tho lestlmonv. etc., of the de fense but will havo the State's Interests con sldered os well. Tho testimony disclosed that Howarth wna a shockingly dissipated man, so far as drink ing Is concerned, that at the time of hln ar rest ho was In a very dilapidated condition, having been for weeks prior to this tlmo on a debauch, through drinking alcohol, that a deputy sheriff on one or moro occasions rep resented to him that to bo accused of murder In I'tah did nrt amount to cry much and that ho could get out of pretty easy by oon ( uxlns IjiPt Howarth did mako a confes sion to tho Rherifr Thin wan after he had heard tho caso against him at th prelimin ary examination, and had read the various newspaper accounts of tho case, and the con fession, though mado after he had heard all thu evidence against hlin and the full i r tli.ulars of the crime, was so Inconsistent with tho facts that hod Howarth testified to It under outh and been acoulttod. he could havo boon tried and convicted of perjury Among other things his confession dl i 1 that ho pried tho back doublo door of tho storo open with an Iron bar. which bar he threw In a well some three or four foot dis tant from tho door Th evldenco on tho part of tho 6tat discloses beyond question that tho back door of tho storo hud . r been pried open and that It would havo been utterly Impossible to havo pried It open with out literally breaking It to .iec !n truth and In fact there WSJ not g mur rj alt Tho Iron bar was found In the well In tho morn ing luter the murder by a well digger, who lived In or near Layton, but months after HOWaith'S conviction and biforo his com mutation of sentence asked for. counsel for def..n.srf burned that tho bur found lu the woll and used as evldenco In tho case WM coverod with moss and must havo ben In tho well for weeks, If not months, prior to the tlmo when this crtmo was committed.

The arrest was the reanlt of an attempt made recently, It Is stated, to defraud the clerk of Stilt Lako county out of bounty money. Jones took wolf and coyoto pelts to tho office of tho county clerk which wero seen to havo been subjected to tho samo ordeal before They bore the marl:n lixetl by other counties Immediately Sher iff Emery was notified.

The woman now at tho Windsor gaya she is Mrs Jones Tho question Is whether Jones has any moro alleged wives In the State Had a Wolf Farm. According to the officers.

At any rate, the allegation Is mode that ho waa caught In the act of selling for bounty old tildes in Weber and Bait Lake counties Tho Weber county attempt was made about two weeks ago The assist ant county clerk detected tho deception and refused to pay. Here in Salt Lako county It seems that Jones was n i ognlzed as having done business before.

The woman scrambled for these and then the victor ious deputy, with the motie v-belt In bis poi ket, had to again scuffle with the woman Ho got nearly $7W In this belt.
