II
A criminal case in which an unusual
amount of interest is taken came up for
trial before Judge Anderson yesterday
morning This was the case of James L
Smith who claims to be a detective and
who is under indictment for criminally
libeling R Miadlemiss a real estate
dealer of this city Stephens Schvreder
appeared for defendant and Mr Critch
low and S AV Darke prosecuted
The defendant moved for a continuance
because of the absence of an important wit
ness Mr Hideout and Smith went on the
stand and stated that lUdeout would testify
that Middlemiss had swindled him out of
some town lots
The motion was overruled and the trial
was proceeded with
Captain J R Middlemiss was called and
testified that he was the party mentioned
in a circular issued by the defendant He
saw Smith in the landoflice in this city and
he handed witness one of the circulars re
ferred to in the indictment
The witness here identified the circular
It reads as follows
Chief of police John R Middlemiss
alias Captain J R Middlemiss about forty
eight or fifty years of age weight about
one hundred and seventy or one hundred
and eighty pounds about five feet ten or
eleven inches in height dark complexion
black eyes gray hair cut short stout
build big fiat boot No 11 At present
time he is clean shaved excepting a small
dark or artificially colored moustache
which he usually wears pointed at the
ends At times however he wears a large
full beard heaviest on the chin dresses
well looks genteel It is said he has kept
a drug store has also been a life insurance
agent and claims to be a mining expert
talks German and French but itis believed
be is a Canadian of Scotch and French
descent He has a good address with much
cheek and impudence and is what is called
by crooks a smooth mug He is much
addicted to drink and when under the
influence of liquor which is about
twothirds of the time will become engaged i
in salbon broils and fisticuff Ho has no
doubt operated in various parts of the
world under different names he is a good
scribe and writes very rapidly His hand
writinc in letters and bills is in my pos
session and I am satisfied he is
crooked and is wanted in dif
difierent localities It is said he is well
known to Hughy Geary and has done time
with him Geary has worked as an all
around confidence and sure thing man in
Denver and other western localities in
cluding the Pacific coast
Middlemiss like all such characters will
squander money freely when he has it and
will not hesitate to bilk hotels nnd run his
face in saloons when without money In
saloons he will assume all the dignity of a
man of unlimited means He will sing
comic Scotch songs when meetinr Scotch
men in saloons He has asserted that he
was a captain in the confederate service
and has endeavored to get the Mormons to
to baptize him into their church telling
them that he could go south and by mak
ing one speech raise an army of 10000 men
and ead the children of Israel out of
bondage etc He succeeded in
swindling an old man here over
the age of seventy out of eleven town lots
the proceeds of which he squandered and
the transaction was done in such a clever
manner that I doubt if he can be convicted
As a mining man he is a fraud he knows
nothing neither theoretically nor prac
tically about mines nor mineral He has
been pulled in various places on the
Pacific coast and Canada was arrested for
embezzlement in Virginia City Nev
about a year ago Some years ago he
stopped out from Montreal Canada where
he left many creditors to mourn his verj
sudden disappearance From his general
makeup his actions and expressions one
of which is I fear no man but fear my
God 1 believe that he has at I I
times in his checkered career turned I
his attention to preaching in the
capacity of what is known as an itinerant I
preacher His assertions that he has been
R captain in the confederate states service
is not only a shameful lie but it is an out
rage and gross libel on the people of the
south All officers of the law whose busi
ness it is to hunt down and bring to justice
rouges frauds and traveling bilks are re
spectfully requested to furnish me any in
formation they may have or may obtain
concerning the above described character
Respectfully
JAJIES L SMITh detective
OGDEK Utah UrS AFeb 23 18S9
E D R Thompson was then called and
testified that he was familiar with Smiths
handwriting He was shown a letter pur
porting to have been written by the defend
ant to Governor West and said the writ
ing looked like Smiths
Mr Ellis of Ogden testified that Smith
some time ago handed him a circular bu
he was unable to Identify the one given
above as the one given him by Smith
The prosecution rested and Mr Stephens
moved for a dismissal on the ground that
no publication of a libel had been shown
The motion was taken under advisement
and for convenience E M Allison was
called by the Defense and testified that
some time ago Mr Middlemiss told him
that one J R Midalemiss had been ar
rested in Nevada for embezzlement but
that he was not the party
The case will come up again this morn 1
