ONE of the most comical scenes witnessed in
a long time occurred Sunday evening when
a stray team of big goodnatured mules went
up Main street On reaching Second South
the animals concluded to take in the sidewalk
and joined in with the crowd of pedestrians
They walked along sedately until the Gayety sa
loon was reached when they attempted to fol
low the crowd into that resort but were refused
admittance and so they continued their tour A
young fellow and his girl were walking up the
street just ahead of the mules and one of the
animals walked quietly up to them and stuck
his head between their shoulders The girl
screamed and the fellow cussed but the mules
walked straight on until Godbes corner was
reached when they condescended to take the
btreet again

While the columns of the Graphic are

to speak knowingly of the merits of the

Particularly is this true of patent medi

brated Chamberlains Cough Remedy
l This now universally known medicine
has been advertised in the Graphic for
four or five years but not until recently
had wo any personal knowledge of its won
derful efficacy which has come about
through the prevailing influenza and tho
stubborn cough that has so often attended
it In the writers family this medicino
has on several occasions this winter cured
a cough that baffled any and all other
remedies and the number of families in
Kimball and vicinity in which this remedy
bus been used with like effects attests to
its value as a specific for coughs and colds

Wallace and Mrs Dundas are
Both Discharged
Paul Hammer Escapes With Fine and Costs
Laneys Little List Probate
Court Notes
The cases of J AV Wallace and Mary
Dundas charged with adultery were called
up in the Third district court yesterday and
were both dismissed on motion of Mr
Varian who filed the following statement
I appearing that the only witness so far
as known by whom proof or the marriage of
Mary Dundas can be made is her husband
S dne Dundas and lliathe is not within
the territory and cannot be found and it
being considered that he is not a competent
witness to establish such fact and no other
evidence being obtainable I hereby move
that this indictment be dismissed
I will be remembered that a few months
ago Sydney Dundas the witness referred
to went to his home in the western part of I
the city and found Wallace who was then
a barkeeper in the Golden Gate
saloon with Mrs Dundas A ter
rific light followed in which Wallace
had his head beaten out ofshape with a 1
beer bottle and his injuries laid him up for
some time Dundas evidently concluded
that he had had all the revenge he wanted
and could not be found to testify against
the defendants
Paul Hammer indicted for unlawful co
habitation then appeared and stated abut
he wished to withdraw his pita of not guilty
and enter a plea of guilty In answer to
questions put by Judge Zane Mr Hammer
stated that he did not believe in the practice
of polygamy and he intended to ooey the
law in the luture He was sentenced to
pay a fine of JUO and costs which he did
This is the case in which exDeputy Marshal
Springer created something of u stir a short
time ago by aliening that when he arrested
Hammer tne latter tried to bribe him to let
him escape This part of the charge was
investigated by the grand jury who jtrnored
The case of John W Such charged with
unlawful cohabitation thou came up for
trial and a jury was quickly secured
Judge Powers defended and Mr Varian
prosecuted The indictment alleged that
the offense was committed between Oc
tober lS87 and September ISlO with
Luenna E Snell and Eliza Shaffer I
Miss Shatter testified that she was at one
time the defendants plural wife but they
agreed to separate some live years ago and
did so The business oT Mr Snail was
regularly transferred to her and since that
time they had lived apart although the
defendant was employed at the store It
was shown the defendant had been with
Mias Shatter on the street two or three
times and on the night of his arrest he was
found in the store where Miss Shaffer
This was all the testimony adduced and
after being ably argued by Judge Powers
and the prosecutor the case went to the
jury at 1230 When the court resumed its
session at 2 p m the jury came in with a
verdict of not guilty
The case of Ray L Davis vs Emma
Davis etal referred to P E McGurrm to
take testimony and report
The case of John J Stocking charged
with perjury came up for trial in the af
ternoon Mr Varian prosecuting and Le
Grand Young and R W Young defending
The indictment alleged that on February
101890 the defendantwent before Justice
Burton and falsely corruptly wilfully
and feloniously swore that p P Tarpey
who had voted at the municipal election
the day named was not enti led to vote
not being a legal voter in the Second pre I
cinct when in fact he was a qualified
elector and Stocking knew it at the
time he made his affidavit
D P Tarpey testified that he was the
land agent of the Southern Pacific and he
lived at Corinne from lbS4 until ISsJ when
he removed to this city and resided at the
Metropolitan hotel He registered for the
municipal election and voted at the Second
precinct in February last Soon after he
voted Stocking came up to him with some I
policemen and the witness was arrested on
the charge of illegal voting Ho went be
fore Justice Burton and demanded a trial
but the case was postponed twice and was
finally dismissed Stocking failing to ap
pear After the indictment was found tue
defendant came to the witness and said
that he had no malice in making the charge
and that he was put up to I by the police
The defendant testified that he made the
affidavit on statements made to him by a
man named Wright and that he had no
feeling whatever against Mr Tarpey but
I was simply mistaken as to the facts
The case will be argued this morning

I Manager Burton is seen today going
from his house to his place of business via
the back lots and bye alleys that lie be I
tween and i he wears his sombrero well
down on his eyes it may be ascribed to
what took place in that temple of art known
as the Salt Lake tneatre last evening He
had smelt a decent sized rat when the agent
of the Worlds Fair company appeared
here Friday night and booked for the fol I
lowing Monday and Tuesday so he rented
his house instead of as usual playing on
percentage But that the public couldnt I
be expected to know and in the public eyes
the manager gets as much blame for a tart
show as he receives praise for a good one
perhaps rather more So after the show
got well under way last night the manager
was missing from his accustomed seat and
could only be seen by a privileged few in
the privacy of a stage box I vas
really a show that might have driven him
a good deal farther than that When
j Edward E Rice came out and took his
place in the orchestra ana people who
knew him remembered his Evangeline1
and his partnership with Dixey in
Adonis there was a general expecta
tion that The Worlds Fair was going to
amount to something But before the cur
tain had been up five minutes it grew very 1
evident that this Rico was not that Rico
or if it was that some baleful inlluence
had hoodooed him It wasnt so much the
piece which might still be beaten into a
tolerable one with a Dixey or a City Di
I rectory company to interpret it but
Weep O Thalia the company A chorus
of eight and one girl spavined while the
others had been deprived of their vocal
cords early in life The two or three
tolerable voices among the principalsif
principals they could bo called were
queered by the chestnuts given them to
sing The costumes were cheap The
scenery was handsome it gives us poasure
to say that much and D G A H quartette I
met with some favor But what Rice is
I doing so far from New York with an or I
ganization like that it passeth the wisdom
I of man to find out It goes again tonight
The Christmas Number Is a Very Brilliant
The Christmas number of this favorite
home niagaziue is before us and a hurried
glance at its contents reveals the fact that
we have here in Utah a most capable corps
of magazine writers and the Cuitrilmtir
has the happy faculty of drawing their
best thoughts from them Everyline of
this Christmas number is original and the
variety of matter is almost as great as that
of any of the standard mouthiits
The most conspicuous feature of the
number is the charming little poem called i
the Sisters Charge by Miss Josephine i
Spencer to accompany which the publish
ers have secured 1 most beautiful colored
photogravure of Bonguereaus painting of
that name The Christmas story is by
Mrs Emmcline Wells and wo have just
had time to note that it is a tale of New
England life cirefully told Orson Pratts
Boyhood and a sketch of Joseph Smiths
Life by B H Robert form the bio
graphical features while MS2s Thatcher
opens up the subject of Moral Courage
in an interesting paper which is to be fol
lowed by others on the same subject
I Dr J E Talmage presents thtj scientific
article choosing Spiders for his subject
and Henry Harrow has made some most
creditable engravings to illustrate it
I The sensational though entirely truthful
account of the stealing of Thurstons child
years ago in Cache valley is narraed in the
graphic style of Santiago whose Pio

higher up on the hil The summit will be

follow the wagou road past Buzzos ranch I

The Local Offices
That there is a sort of funeral pall over
the local offices there can be no doubt that
this is the result eastern railway moves
is equally apparent Just why it should bo
o no one has any definite reason t give
but the general impression prevailing is
that something will drop eec many weeks
have passed Agentleinuu who has an in
timato knowledge of the inner workings
and who gathers formation that is i studi
ously kept from representatives yes
terdny said
You will soon see a decided change in
the railway complexion in this city
vln what maimed
Well there will be a general centraliza
tion of forces and a cutting down of ex
It has been intimated in Tne HERALD
that some of theeastern reads would
abolish their offices here but that was
strenuously denied by some of toe in
terested i tr
I know that The publication may
have been a little premature and it may
bo that the wrong roads were named That
there was somethingin it however there
can be no doubt Whether the plan will
be carried into effect remaihs to be seen
Take our local roads for intance I have
it from the best of authority that the Rio
Grande Western has entered upon a te
trenchrnenf policyan which tho running
expenses of tue road care to be materially
reduced As a result two of the clerks in
the claim dependent have either left or
soon will leave the service of the road and
I hear of other moves which I do not care
t now malt public
Then you look for a general shaking up
all along the line
Yes that is probably a good name for I
it I cannot now tall you just in what t
shape it will come who will be behind the
cyclone nor the victims it will emorace I
but that there is oicethin1 acumiu there
can be no doubter rfEuo next montu will

It Was Twenty Years Ago
The art le in Tnt HrKALn oa Sunday I
morning in reference to the pictures in
the windows of Savages art bazar illus
trating the scenes connected with the
driving of the last spike in the connection
of the Union and Central Pacific roads
aroused great interest and hundreds of
oldtimers and newcomers viewed the
pictures s with enjoyment yesterday
It is like a brume from the past said
Mr James Lees the secretary of the Alice
Mining company as he viewed toe pictures
yesterday I was on the ground at the
time of the meeting of the engines
and well remember Savage making prepar
ations the waiting operator tHe blows

ment that followed as the news of the great
overt was Hashed to a waning world My
father IS a prominent figure he is the gen

hands jmely finished liethe last one and
the spike was also a costly one After it
had been laid and the spike driven it was
taken up sawed in two and onehalf taken
to Omaha and tho remainder t San Fran
cisco Those were troublous days too
said Mr Lee reflectively Talk about
your man for breakfast why we had them
lor every meal in the daJand some t
slave The completion of tie road saw a
large number of men out of work Some
returned home others had no better place
to go and remained Promontory at that
time was a tough place ono of the worst I
I suppose that the west had ever
seen Deperadoss cut throats bun
co steereis ant other bal men I
abounded and it really seemed as though
the scum of the earth had found lodgment
there For some time after the completion
of the road Promontory was the junction
There was 1 clash between the manage
ment neither caring to change their time
table nor running time and as a rc3ultpas
sengers were compelled to wait over
twelve hours each way Then it was that
the bunco and surething men go j in their
work on the tenderfoot from tho east or
Irom the west Tao trains were systemat
ically worked and woe unto the unwary
passenger who listened to the propositions

out of every cent he nad At last matters
became so bad that further forbearance
was out 01 the question and the vigilantes
took hold With the usual warning the
sure thing men and others of that ilk were
invited to leave Most of them did so
There was one fellow however who re
mained and was twice pulled up to a tele
graph wire before ho concluded that other
climes would be more conducive to his
health From that time on there was an
absence of the lawless element and soon
the town went to pieces and there is noth

troublous times in 09 and 70
The Pass Question
Mr Donald hairman of tho Central
Traffic association passenger department
has reminded General Passenger Agent
Ford of tho Pennsylvania that the steps
I he has taken in issuing passes to agents of
parties of ten fifteen or more could not be
I I justified by tho association and were ho
Thought contrary to the spirit of the inter
state commerce net Mr Ford replied
defending his action and repeating his
charges of secret rate cutting on tho part of
his competitors butdeclining to make soe
cific charges against any road in particular
and stating that his action was taken un
der the advice of tho general counsel of the
road and that he had notified the Inter
state Commerce commission of all that had
been done Chairman Blanchard then took
a hand in the matter and wrote vicePresi

strong language to the irregular and un
justifiable practices ol his general pas

Armeal ofthe North Benchers to
the City Council
Which Will Transform the
I In Improvements Wi
North Bencn and Add u Million to the
Valuation in a Year
Among the flood of petitions which I
poured into the city council last Tuesday
rash of business
night was one which in the
ness attracted little attention It was
however one of the most important mat
ters presented to the council in a long time
Situated on the North Bench above Ninth
street is a tract of about 100 acres of land
which is owned principally by old time res
idents who have been patiently waiting for
years for water to reach the land so that
they could build homes and take up their
abode there When the city auctioned off
some of its acres a short time ago a lot of
energetic new comers invested about 50
000 in this locality with the understanding
that they would have water there in a short
time Some months have passed since
then and as the owners wore no nearer
apparently to obtaining the necessary
fluid than before they finally pooled their
issue and descended on the council in pla
toons The assessed valuation of the dis
trict is now only 15000J and the property
owners say that the extension of the mains
would increase this valuation to at least
000000 while the improvements already
planned will within p year after the ad
vent of the fluid swell this total to a round
million and the district which is now un
inhabited and practically uninhabitable
will be the home of 150 families One well
known business man is waiting to pu up a
10000 building there and all the owners
are ready to unite in improving making
improvements which revolutionize that
section and transform it from a dreary
waste into ono of the most beautiful por
tions of this beautiful city It is more
than likely that the council will grant the
prayer A number of councilmen who
were seen by a HERALD manyesterday ex
pressed themselves in favor of it and it is
likely that ere lone the property owners
will be given a chance to scatter their
lucre There are several methods by which
the water could be easily taken to the dis
trict One plan is to convey water from
City Creek to the natural reservoir located
by the expert water commission and pipe
it from there to the lots It is claimed that
this reservoir could bo led from the sur
plus waters of City Creek Another plan
is to extend a main from the Emigration
pipe line to the bench and this is the ono
that will probably bo adopted
A prominent member of the council
stated to a HERALI reporter last evening
that ho strongly favored this plan The j
Emigration pipe line said he is con j
structcd to meet just such a contingency
asthis It is now completed to Thirteenth
East street and the cost of extending a
main to this district would bo compara
tively slight It has the necessary pres
sure and the plan is entirely practicable
Then people are entitled to the water and I
think they will get it They are all wait
ing to spend their money in building up the
city anti it would be poor economy to hold
hem back any longer after they have
va ted all these years 1 see no reason why
the petition should not bo granted at once
and then the work could be completed by
spring so that they could then go ahead
with their improvements Then I believe
he contracts for piping the waters of Par
eys canon to the city should be let at once
and work could be commenced on this as
soon as tile first frost is out of the ground
This will supply similar wants from the
southern and eastern part of the city and
with both these improvements completed
the demands for water will be met
It is not likely that the petition in ques
tion will bo definitely acted upon at the
next meeting of the council but there is
little doubt but that the committee will

whatever plan may bo adopted will bo
promptly carried out
