THE COCAINE HABIT
Its Terrible Growth in This City
Over Three Hundred Grains Con
snmed In a Single Day
The Drug Stores Doing a Heavy Busi
ness In ItThe Trade Growing
Heavier Daily
Jhippies and Tin Horn Gamblers the
Principal Consumers Slaves In
the Higher Walks of Life
The most horrible evil to which a com
munity could be subjected that of the I
cocaine habit is reported to be growing
I1 this city at an alarming rate A hur
ried investigation by a DEMOCRAT re
porter shows a state of affairs which I
must be startling t those who have had I
no opportunity toobserve for themselves
A well known physician says that the
number of actual slaves t this habit
will run away up into the hundreds
and among them will be found many
who occupy social positions far above
mediocrity The consumers usually
visit the drug stores late at night when
there are no other customers about and I
it is not unusual for them to ring up the
night clerk along in the rng hours ol f
the morning in order to satisfy their
burning depires Drug clerks say that tf
the classes most given to to the use ol f
the drug are chippies and tinhorn
gamblers and as a usual thing
they make no attempt to disguise
the fact that they are steady consumers 1
Inquiries at the different drug stores
reveals the fact that no less than three
nundred grains of the drug were sold I
yesterday and this is not at all above
the
average
averageAN
AN ENSLAVED CHIPPY
The night clerk of one of our leading
drug stores says that he ha one regular
customer who literally lives I on the drug
Her visits are regular and on each occa
sion she buys as large an amount
as her limited purse will allow
She talks freely about using the
drug and often expresses a wish
that she had never started it She says
that she would give half her life to sayn
the other side of the day whan she firs I
touched cocaine but she has no idea Ot
trying to give it up as that is entirely too
heavy an undertaking her weak mind
There are dozens of her class who are
cas
about a bad off a she is and there are
none who would not be glad t break her
chains
J WEALThY WOMAN
I is also stated that among the self
enslaved victims there is a woman the
revelations of whose name would cause
a shocking sensational scandal This
lady though rich educated and ac
complished is a most complete
slave to the habit I is true
that she does not use it
so frequently a the most reckless
women of the lower classes but even her
sense of selfrespect does not go far in
the fight against the great enemy This
woman like a few others of the better
class who are victims sends messengers
for it but on rare occasions has been
known to enter stores and purchase it i
herself
Male consumers are not so numerous
a those of the weaker sex but they are
just as easily enslaved when they once
give in t it
gve itnon
non TO SPOT TIE
A physician says that he can always tel
a victim by the peculiarly livid com
plexion the lifeless expression of the <
eye and other unmistakable signs He
says that if you once see one of them you
can spot them ever afterward
Nearly al former victims of the opium
habit have given up the old drug for the
new and they find the shackels of co
cainea thousand times worse than those
of the celestial opiate The habit is gain
ing new converts every day and the
sooner something is done to prevent the
free traffic in the poison the better it will
be for the entire town

MISS FIELDS LECTURE
Teiday Evening Next at the
Walker Opera House
Of Miss Kate Field who is to lecture
at the Walker Opera House on Tuesday
evening next the Boston Globe says
One is scarcely able to characterize
this lecture briefly It was a series of
vivid picturesa glance into a chamber
of horrors an array of facts and figures
and documentary evidence a recital of
the results of personal knowledge and ob
servation which let in a veritable flood
food
of light npon a matter which is but
imperfectly understood by 999 people out
of 1000 More than once did her hear
er turn t look at each other with the
wideOpened eyes an indrawn breath
which said Can these things be
e Much of what she said
was impressed indelibly upon the mem
ory partly by the interest of the facts
themselves partly by the dramatic force
with which they were delivered
S Although Miss Field protests that
she is a reformer only by accident
and force Of circumstances yet none
the less will an immense amount of
good be accomplished by her stirring up
and educating public opinion now so in
different on this topic Indeed in what
other way can help come And none the
less will this prove to be we believe the
great work of Miss Fields life the work
for which in after years she will be known
and honored

CHEAP PICTURES
Some Tips for Inexperienced Put
chasers
The case of Dunbar vs Morgan which
was tried in the District Court this week
but proves what THE DEMOCRAT has said I
in regard to cheap pictures This was a
case in which a picture peddler brought I
suit against a lady to recover damages for
two pictures enlarged from photographs
True there is some blame to be given
those who will be taken in by the
chronic picture fiends who come and I
sell and are gone These enlarged pic
tures are nothing more than solar types
colored in a few momentsand then given
to the purchasers as works of art and I
that too at exhorbitant prices With I
home artists whoare competent to give
to the purchaser work of art as well as
a picture of some relative or friend there
can be no excuse for patronizing these
nomads who wander over the country
with their cheap trashy wares to catch
the unwary True these peddlers
come to our homes so handy you know
and they talk a great deal oi
moonshine which is prepared for the i
occasion and you give them an order
which could be duplicated for onetenth 1
of the amount you pay by our local I
artists Another thing you could not t
get Clawson Ottinger Hafen or any ol f
our portrait painters to turn out such
work as was exhibited in the courtroom
during the above trial When you want
enlarged pictures go to any of the por
trait painters in the city and let them do
the work and you may be assured that t
it will be done with cure and faithfulness
I the people withdraw their patronage
from these frauds who but rob them these
same peddlers will cease visiting our city
and the people will never be importuned
to give their earnings for worthless daubs
made by very ordinary artists in San
Francisco or Eastern cities S

THE JOS DEAN TRIAL
He Married the Fair Florence in L
March 1884 Without Her
Fathers Consent
A Marriage of Pare Lore A Copy of L
Deans Letter to His Girl
Wifes Father
Telling About the Ceremonies of the i
Endowment House Deans
First Wifes Consent
From Our Ogden Correspondent
The polygamy case against Joseph H
Dean was again the leading feature of the I
First District Court proceedings yester
day and today
Taking up the thread of the crossex
amination of the defendant where it had I
been broken off the previous evening
C S Varian pressed Dean pretty hard
as to the identity of certain persons who
bad been on the train at the tme when I
Dean and Florence Ridges had been re
turning from Logan where they are ac
cused of having entered into polygamous
wedding Dean did not desire on that t
occasion to be seen with Florence hence
he left the car in the Sixteenth ward in
Salt Lake City Had gone to Logan on I
business fever been in the Temple
there with Florence Marriages were
not considered in good Church standing
if consummated outside of the Temples
or Endowment Houses of the Church
Florence had come to livewith him on
June 21st 1885 no intimate marital 1
connections between them having existed I
previous to that date ever since March
1884 the date of the plural marriage ad
mitted to have occurreJMn Salt Lake
City He did use to take her out buggy
riding sometimes atiiights but his con
duct had been such as to cause him no
concern till John C Young met them
it was a marriage of attachment between
the two While living with him she
would go out on the street and into
society Her status as to outsiders was
that of assistant t his first wife who
was a dress maker Acknowledged it i
was the law of the Church that the first
wifes consent should be had in cases of
plural marriage and his own action had
ben no exception to the rule as he had
Sarahs consent to enter into the princi
ple whenever he chose He had entered
it because he felt it was his duty Had
been a stone cutter at the Temple block
till ahouta year ago when he entered the
office of clerk in the Salt Lake Police
Court It was left entirely with the par
ties entering upon such platonic
marriages Had five children I
from Sarah the youngest being I
six months old Florence had been con
cealed on the Underground since Jan
uary 1886 in order to hide her delicate
physical appearance Had made no
effort to secure the presence at his trial
of the president of the Logan Temple A
question to whether political prefer
ment followed the compliance with the
Church doctrines was not deemed proper
by the court He had obtained a gen
eral consent of Sarah not any specifi
cally expressed one so as to exempt the
first wife from having to give testimony
in any prosecution which might come up
Had never received any certificate of
marriage in either case Nothing had
ever been said as to records being kept
but he had made inquiries and efforts as
to such when he got out of the peniten
tiary last March This was to assist him
in the present trial Had consulted by
letter with Florences father as to his in
tended marriage with Florence in Janu
ary 1884 The letter was produced by
the defense and to the
objected by prose
cution as improper The letter was
finally admitted as testimony and read to
the jury by the defendant
Following is a copy of the letter
SALT LAKE Cm Jan 13 18S4
Brother J H Ridges DEAR Sin Yon are
no doubt aware of what has passed between
Florence and myself at least I sincerely
hope s I can only plead the present con
dition of affairs AS an excuse for the appar
ent clandestine manner in which I have
gained your daughters affections
I assure you that nothing would be more
pleasing to my feelings and more in har
mony with my ideas of right than to come
as a man of righteous intention should and
ask your consent I have thought it policy
however not to do so for reasons that I be
lieve you will fully appreciate
I give my word as a man of honor that
my intentions are pure and God knows I
have no other desire than to Keep His com
mandments
I promise you that Florence snail never go
to prison to keep me out and that I will en
deavor to make her life happy and be all to
her that a virtuous and connding girl has a
right to demand
I you object on account of her youth I
will state that wo have agreed not to live
together as man and wife for at least a
year Hoping that you will have confidence in
my integrity and not withhold yonr con
sent I subscribe myself
Yours very respectfully I
Jos H DEAX
Varian crowded defendant closely as to
his success in his alleged endeavors to
secure witnesses to his marriage in 1884
and submitted Dean to a scorching inves
tigation of his credibility The letter of
Dean to his intended fatherinlaw
Ridges was held up in rigid scrutiny a
an ingenious engine of quibbling to
assist defendant in getting out of the
toils His statements as a witness were
all equally alike The letter was not
written since the indictment in this case
was found
To Mr Richards had answered all
questions without mental reservation
resenaton
AFTERNOON SESSION
After noon recess the defendant took
the stand once more acknowledging it
was possible that he might have regis
tered and voted after entering into polyg
amy Questioned a to endowments he
gave some testimony as to their nature
James Iverson called by the prosecu
tion Lived in Utah and Idaho for
eighteen years off and on Became a
Mormon twentyseven years ago in Den
mark when fifteen years of age He
was a missionary for about six year in
which time he Had taught and preached
the principles of the church He was a
Mormon the first two years after coining
t Utah Had been through the En
dowment House A woman being mar
red or sealed for time and eternity in
plural or celestial marrjage then and
there completed her endowments Cross
examined by Mr Richards hecould not
positively say that 1 woman eouId not
receive any further endowments after be
ing sealed for time and eternity there
were certain religions rites performed
after sealing although he insisted that
the sealing for time and eternity was a
completion of the endowments Left
the church about seventeen years ago
a year after ho had received his endow
ments He left the church because he
arrived at a belief that it was not the re
ligion he had wanted re
J B Milner called by the defense
had been a Mormon for fortyfour years
was acquainted with doctrines and or
dinances of the church to a certain ex
tent Had his endowments He knew
that it was the practice to confer certain
endowments upon people after they had i
been sealed Such were baptisms
4 sealinpSj adoptions further he did
not wish to state not having progressed
that far The first two named might
be both before and after sealing the J t
third could only b after marriage A
woman might b sealed to a woman i
More intricacies of the endowment were I t
elicited for the edification of the au
dience Their is an order of the priest
hood in which both men and women are
included
incuded
Fet Brown also was called for the de
fense to testify a to the endowments in I
cluding second waning and anointings
Mr Brown is a polygamist and has suf
fered for conscience sake C S Varian
Joseph Stanford followed suit for the
defense but Varian led him up n sub
stance to admit that he was in sympathy
with his church in its fight with the Gov
ernment being in sympathy with all its
practices those who enter into them
r
hence with the defense in the present
case
ca Ogden Hues opened the arguments for
the prosecution starting it with reference
to a sort of breezy on to Berlin confi
dence exhibited by the defendant It
was clear that at least in the forums of
conscience and morals the defendant was
a criminal offender not only against the
laws l of the United States but against
the laws of mankind To claim the right
of f breaking such laws be it by John
Jones Joe Smith or some other impos
tor was an equally gross assumption
Mr Riles read the indictment and stated
that there was a double chicane with
which aided by a little perjury the de
fendant f was trying to defeat the ends of
justice t C C Richards and F S Rich
ards tt objected to the prosecutions line in
trying t argue to the jury that perjury
had been practiced in the giving of the
testimony Hiles impeached the full
credibility of some yea all of the wit
nesses who had been drilled into what he
called the freemasonry of scoundrelism
called the Mormon Church His analysis
of f the testimony with the crushing aide
blows at the local practices was a scath

ment House
After he closed his vigorous address a
recess of ten minutes was taken when C
C Richards opened the defence in a neat
and quiet manner trying to eliminate
extraneous matters from the considera
tion of the case and claiming for his
client all the benefits of reasonable
doubt
The plan of the defense was t prove
that defendant and Florence Ridges i
were married in Salt Lake City in 1884
but did not live together for one year or
more The defense was ingenious
NOT GUILTY
After an eloquent address in behalf of
the defendant by F S Richards and a
scorcher of a speech by C S Varian
the judge charged the jury in a clear
and unimpassioned manner Tho jury
retired about 10 oclock and returned
shortly after 7 oclock this morning
with a verdict of not guilty
The court room and hallway had
been besieged all night by eager
crowds to learn of the progress of the
deliberations of the jury The public
verdict on the twelve mens verdict is
one of agreement to disagree But the
end may not yet be

fastest ever made on that track The

Speed in a horse Is money Every
second a horse knocks off his record in
creases his value Thorough horsemen
cannot be persuaded to purchase horses
any longer on trials against the watch
They want to see them on the track with
other horses alongside They want them
to illustrate their levelheaded qualities
prove their gameness and confirm the
endurance claimed for them
Fifteen or twenty years ago breeders
and owners considered a horse useless for
turf purposes until he was four or five
years old and as a natural consequence
they were not even trained until they
reached that age The trotting interests
of the present day have assumed a very
different aspect There are valuable
stakes for two three and fouryearolds
all of which attract the attention of the
province state or nation by which they
are supported
The first few years of their existence
were uneventful The contests were tame
and the time slow In 1874 however a
change came upon the scene The three
year old filly Lady Stout crossed the
rubicon of the trotting arena and placed
220 opposite her name
The fouryearold records have been
reduced very rapidly Elaine placed the
mark at 2 24k in 1878 JayEyeSee
beat 220 in 1880 trotting two heats in
219aJ Chicago Two years later Elvira
cut it down to 2184 That mark re
mained unchanged until 1884 when Sal

two and make no mistake On April 24
about sixteen thousand people visited
Ridgewood Park which is located on the
outskirts of the city of Brooklyn There
are a lot of farmers in that neighborhood
who raise garden stuff for the market
The baseball enthusiasts paid no atten

but walked over them just as though
thye were not there Last Sunday the
farmers put up a job and it worked to
perfection They set a halfdozen traps
one of which was a sockdolliger They
dug holes from a foot to three feet deep
and from one to four feet in diameter
These holes were filled with the finest
grade of fertilizing compounds as the
farmer keeps apout twenty cows A coat
ing of fresh earth was sprinkled over the
top of each trap and in the mammoth
manhole by 4they planted some
rhubarb One unsophisticated individ
ual walked straight into the big trap and
sank up to his waist in the soft substance
He was a pitiable sight when he scram
bled up on the hard ground Nobody
had any use for him and at last accounts
the poor fellow was hiding behind a
fence waiting until it was dark enough
to sneak home There were dozens of
others who were caught but none so bad
as this poor follow and when he com
plained to the policeman the officer had
the nerve to tell him that his breath
smelled a little strong

ART AND ARTISTS
The Studio of Mr George M OtUn
ger Utahs Oldest and Most
Successful Artist
A Graduate ofiflie Academy of Art at
Philadelphia Ills Studies of
Mexican Life
His Experience In Trying to Sell
Pictures for What They
Are Worth
A DEMOCRAT representative spentabout
two hours very pleasantly the other day
in the studio of Mr Geo M Ottjner
viewing his fine collection of paintings
and listening to the instructive convers
tion of the artist His are mostly histor
ical works and it is necessary for a
per
son to hear their history before he can
fully appreciate their merits Mr Ot
tinger ever since his boyhood has taken
an unusual interest in Old Mexico and
her people and we presume that he ia
better posted on that country and its in
habitants than any person in the United
States He spent several years there has
purchased over a thousand dollars worth
of books and maps has read extensively
and these combined with his observing
nature and good memory have well qual
fled him for his favorite theme Mr Ot
tinger is a natural born artist and he
says that he cannot remember the time
when he could not draw tolerably well
In his younger days he had a passionate
desire to learn to draw and paint and it
was his sole ambition to become an art
ist but his parents being Quakers would
not permit him to study art therefore he
saw that in order to accomplish his de
sign he would be compelled to leave
home so he engaged himself for three
years to the captain of a whale ship and
immediately commenced his perilous ad
ventures He served one year and a half
as a whaler then be went to Mexico and
remained there some time studying the
customs and habits of the natives irom
there he went to Peru thence to San
Francisco Sandwich Islands China Ja
nan and back to Philadelphia ins hnmo
he was just twenty years old the day he
arrived home Very few men at the age
of twenty have had such an experience
as he had He went to the Art Academy
of Philadelphia passed an examination
and was admitted as a student lie inked
the professor how long he would have to
study drawing before he could commence
painting and was told it would be three
years studying six houis per day
be then asked he studied twelve hours
a day if he could get through eighteen
months the teacher told him he might
try He started in and at the expira
tion cf eighteen months ho had accom
plished as much as the ordinary student
woula have done in three years We do
not publish the foregoing items with the
intention of giving Mr Ottingers his
tory but merely to give an idea of his
indomitable will and ambition Just
think he left his home when nothing but
a boy and went through perils hard
ships and dangers for a number of years
to obtain money to pay his tuition and
then to study twelve hours eacnV day
when six hours was the allottedtimu
We never hear of boys in theses times
performing such miraculous things as he
did to accomplish any branch of science
or art Mr Ottinger is the pioneer
artist of Utah and for a numberof years
he was the only artist in the Territory
It was uphill business with him for quite
a number of years after he came here
not being able to obtain theproper ma
terials for his profession and when lie
could paying exorbitantprices for them
and finding no sale for his paintings
when finished but notwithstanding all
these adversities he never for a moment
relinquished his pursuits but plodded on
with the same untiring spirit that has
stamped his career ever since hia boy
hoods days and twentyfive years ago
the writer of tins article bus frequenty
seen him fifteen or twenty miles up some
of our canyons afoot with his sketch
box and umbrella across his shoulder in
search of suitable supjects for his pic
tures He was too poor to bay or hire a
horse but whenever he thought that lie
wanted a sketch in a certain locality he
always got it He has done considerable
painting of late and he has a large num
ber of excellent paintings on hand em
bracing a variety of subjects including
landscapes l figures and portraits he
also teaches a class in drawing at the
Deserefc University His paintings
all have a systematic and an
artistic effect showing at once that they
were executed by a master hand and
they take in a great variety of scenery
representing scenes in Utah Colorado
Yellowston JPark Bhoshone Yosemite
Nevada Southern California Europe
and Mexico besides his painting lie
has an endless amount of sketches ail
taken from nature The pictures that
attracted our attention the most were his
Mexican and Peruvian subjects they
are entirely out of the ordinary line and
have been gotten up with such taste and
skill that we could not help gazing on
them with admiration The artist has
made a specialty of this style of subjects
and we presume that he has produced
more historical paintings of these coun
tries than all the other artists in the
world We will not endeavor to criti
else his works separately for he has so
many and they are all so well finished
that we do not know where commence
and had we time and space no would
not attempt for wo feel our inability to
do the artist justice Utah is certainly
no place mar a person who has the genius
and talent that Mr Ottinger has and it
seems almost a pity for him to waste his
time in a place like this where his works
are not appreciated were ho living in
any large city in the United States or the
old country there is no doubt but what
he would find ready sale for his works
and at good prices To substantiate our
remarks we will relate a little circum
stance that happened a few years ago
Mr Ottinger had a pair of figure paint
ings Mexican subjects and was asking
sloct for the pair several of our wealth
iest citizens had been up to his studio
had seen the paintings wanted to buy
them but would not givo more than the
insignificant of 50for the pair and
we presume would have wanted them
elegantly framed in theT > argain About
that time Mr Ottinger was anticipating
a visit to Europe and a day or so before
he started he was in his studio and the
thought struck him that ha would take the
pair of pictures along so he rolled them
up put them in his valise and took them
with him The next day after his arrival
in Liverpool he went to the Guion Steam
ship Companys office to transact some
business and the agent with whom Mr
Ottinger was acquainted asked him if he
had brought any of his paintings with
him he unrolled the two he had and
tacked them upon the wall and left the
office a few hours afterwards he returned
and a numberof gentlemen were looking
at his paintings one of them asked him
what his price was and he said that he
had sun set any price on them yet and
the gentleman offered him 200 for them
just as they were1 without stretchers or
frames which of course Mr Ottinger
accepted The next day they were
framed and on exhibition in one of the
art galleries The gentleman at once
saw the merits of the pictures and was
anxious to obtain them and thought that
he had obtained a good bargain and no
doubt but what he did for we have every
reason to believe that the pictures were
welHrorth the purchase price Utah is
a hard place for an artist to get along in
There are two classes of people here one
has the taste for works of art and would
buy but has no money to spare the
otHer class has plenty of money but no
taste so the poor artist is invariably left
If any person wishes to spend an hour
pleasantly he cannot do better than pay
a visit to Mr Ottingers studio and if he
should have an inclination to buy he can
be euro of getting the worth of his
money for the artists paintings are all
genuine and his prices reasonable
