The Trial to be doa
eluded Today
A Poweis Slakes a Brilliant and
Pathetic Argument
His Voice However Gives Out and the Caso
is Thrown Over for Another DaySome
Very Stirrine Scenes Popular
Sentiment Displayed
Tho announcement that tho arguments
Jn tha Olson murder case would be made
yesterday attracted an unusually large
crowd of spectators to the Third district
court room yesterday morningand aa usual
the seats within the space reserved for
members of the bar were nearly all occu
pied by ladies The jurors were brought
in shortly after 10 oclock Miss Olson sat
by her counsel heavily veiled and watched
the proceedings with close attention
At 1015 Mr Critchlow commenced the
opening argument for tho prosecution He
said it was the duty of the jury to decide
this case upon the law and the evidence
and not to allow themselves to be swayed
by popular clamor In and behind this
case was a public sentiment in favor of the
defendant while the prosecution stood
alone Tho indictment charged a wilful I
deliberate murder I might be said or
charged a coldblooded murder and yet he
did not cara to use the term I
wa a murder born of hot blood
and passion One thing implied in this
case was that at the time of the homicide
The defendant was in full possession of
her faculties but ho would leave the ques
tion of sanity to be discussed by Mr
Varian Miss Olson was not an educated
girl and though she lad not moved in the
higher walks of life her parents were hon
est and respectable people Up t two
jcars ago Miss Olson had never had a
loer Then she was introduced by Mrs
Hart fo Prank C Hal a barkeeper who
v vas married and had two children She
soon became attached to him With the
consent of her parents Hall commenced to
visit her regularly twice a week as a
suitor for her hand After some time and
before any engagement of marriage had
been entered into the defendant testified
aat one night Frank Hall assaulted and
outraged her The circumstances under
which this is said to have taken place dis
posed of the whole story and if Frank Hall
were on trial for that alleged assault upon
the evidence given there was not jury in
the land that would convict him What
ever else had been established here this
part of the defense was absolutely without
loundation Ho thought that vhen
Hall ceased t visit Miss Olson
and left the city with Mrs Hart
her jealousy was fired This feeling grew
upon her and when Hall returned after
an absence of ten months the mother
thought would be well for the daughter
to meet f1m heYdi meet and went te
a room in the Cafe Louvre At noon the
girl testified that Hall again attemped to
asssault her here in this comparatively
public place and in the broad light of day
For himself Mr Critchlow believed that
all Hall attemped at that occasion was to
exchange some endeament which was their
custom in the days gone by and she re
jected it When she went out she was
much agitated and she attributed this to
the fact that Hall refused to marry her
The passions of jealousy and revenge then
seized upon her and she resolved that if
she could nt have Hall for a husband at
least the Hart women should not enjoy his
embraces The stoney cruel nature of this
defendant cropped out when on the wit
ness stand sue volunteered a remark said
t have been made by Hall as to his rela
tions wih Mrs Hart In spite
of all that had been said the character
of Frank Hall stood unscahted although
lie was not here to explain why he had
been cruelly murdered and his two little
children left worse than fatherless As to
the ctory that Miss Olson intended going
to California the day after the shooting
lie thought it was a story and that was all
There was absolutely nothing in all the
evidence anywhere to corroborate this
story It was brought in the case simply
to explain how Miss Olson came to get the
pistol She had before this made up her
mind t kill Frank Hall and her father
knew it perfectly well This was fully
demonstrated by the statement made by
Ill Olson to the reporters The whole
thing was a tale of jealousy and revenge
The sunny skies of Italy and the Vendetta
were not needed Right here in Salt Lake
had been found a young woman who
prompted by jealousy and revenge could
lake a life which she could never give back
again They had heard about insanity
impulsive emotional melancholia and all
that but what had there been brought out
in evidence to show that Amanda
Olson was not perfectly sano up
to the moment the fatal shot
Was fr and sane a her life afterwards
was insane at the instant when the dee
was committed The plea of insanity was
too often a hook put forward by the de
fense for the jury t hang a doubt upon
He fully believed some criminals were
insane and he believed that the most noted
murderer in half a century was insane
wnen he was executed and yet it was
easily feigned What one of all those per
sons who testified that Amanda Olson
looked like an insane person had ever seen
a woman just after she had killed her lover
The girl saw before her the two roads she
must follow either murder or suicide and
calmly and deliberately she made up her
mind that Frank Hall must die It was
not possible that when she fired the shot
abe did not know it was wrong Without
a moment for preparation and with all his
sins upon his head he was sent to
his long account While the jury was con
sidering the effect of their verdict upon
this woman he asired them to consider the
two orphaned children who sat there ask
ing for justice and to remember that in
time to come they would want to know the I
names of the men who sat in judgment upon
their father Mr Critchlow closed by urg
lag the jury t do their duty under their
oath They could not have a higher duty
toward the defendant than toward the peo
ple and ho svas content to leave tho matter
h + hnm
u I
Critchlows argument was listened
t with breathless attention and when ho
finished the belief that tne prosecution
would show some leniency or laxity in the
case was entirely dispelled Mr Critch
lows arraignment of the defendant S
able and pitiless and it certainly produced
some effect During the recital Miss Olson
was visibly affected and occasionally her i
form was shaken by sobs while her veil
was wet with tears She uttered sound
however and her agitation was noticed by
but few
Judge Powers upon arising stated that
there was a variance between the prosecu
tion and the defense as to the charge He
held that if from the whole evidence tho
jury had a reasonable doubt as to the guilt
of the defendant or whether she was re
sponsible for her act the court should
charge them t return a verdict of not
uilty So then read at considerable
length from medical and legal authorities
rin regard to responsibility Judge Powers I
then mentioned the requests to charge for
the defense anl at once proceeded with his
argument to the jury He said that those
who recalled the 2flth of September re
membered that the sky was overcast with
clouds When this case was opened the
valley was overcast with clouds But this
morning as they turned to tho east the
sunlicbt was streaming down upon them
1 Could he not take this as a good omen as
I the presage of the verdict that the little
1 girl he had been defending should receive
This was the first time a woman had ever
been placed on trial for her life in this
court This showed that a womans hand
was not often stained with blood and
when a woman was so placed on trial the
responsibilities of the jury court and coun
sel were graver broader and deeper than
m any other case His first proposition
was that the man who seduced an innocent
girl earned his death and the second was
that the hand of Amanda Olson could not
be stayed The indictment charged mur
der in the first degree and he proposed to
show that this girl was either guilty of
the highest crime or else she was innocent
Amanda Olson would accept no
compromise I the jury thought sho
had committed a coldblooded mur
der then she must be offered
upas a sacrifica to thelaw I sho was not
guilty to that extent she was not guilty at
all He then read the legal definitions of
murder in the first and second degree and
continuing said that if the theory of the
prosecution was correct they had estab
lished a case of murder in the first degree
Mr Critchlow recognized the fact that
public sentiment demanded that this girl
should go free wl eu he bogged them to steel
their hearts against public sentiment in
tho history of American jurisprudence
there had never been a caso where a girl
had been convicted for killing her seducer
01 where a husband had been convicted for
killing the destroyer of Tiis happiness The
prosecution had done its full duty t the
people in this case I seemed to him that
Mr Critchlow though but performing his
duty was cruel He had said that i man
kind were not to be shot down for
such things as these our cities
and tovJns would be depopulated Mr
Critchlow could not have considered the
words he uttered There were men in this
city who wero honest and virtuous ana
there were such men on this jurymen who
at night went to their homes where the
queen of love held sway There was the
true happiness of this life and to say that
cities were full of men who would seek out
the tender plants just budding into
nCer plant woman
hood was monstrous I it is true then I
our towns and cities should bo depopulated
and the brute creation allowed to take their
place Mr Critchlow wanted the jury to
believe that this ignorant unsophisticated
girl as he termed her was a Lady
Macbeth full of plans schemes and re
venge who after having shot this man
was able to come in and play a part on the
stage Mr Critchlow had intimated that
popular clamor demanded that the acquittal
of this girl Was this true of a coldblooded
murdererl The people were pretty
good judges and since the prose
cution had seen fit to give him
the opportunity he took pleasure
in indicating how this case struck other
people He next proposed to tell them the
story of this girls life and in doing this
he wished he had a tongue which could coin
the words his heart would express I he
could do this he would show them such
suffering and sorrow as mankind is rarely
called upon to bear
He said the recital of tho story which he
was about to make would he thought be
sufficient to induce any fairminded jury to
render a verdict of acquittal This girl
was born herein Salt Lake Her parents
came from the north country where vir
tuous women had lived and brave men had
died They came hero seeking the light
and intelligence which was the
glory of America Here this
Jlory con
fiding lovable and virtuous girl
for she was nothing worse was
born She was of that nature that when a
man won her love he won a treasure more
to ba prized than riches Her character
had been produced in evidence and there
could not be found in this whole city a man
or woman who could assail it She grew
up here and she loved Love to a woman
was more than life itself This happy girl
this child of Utah grew up unsuspecting
mans wiles From her childhood she had
known a woman Mrs Hart about whom
the defense had said as little as possible
As to Frank Hall the defense felt that
death ended all Mrs Hart introduced this
little girl to Frank Hall Did Amanda
Olson ever seek him 1 Did she ever walk
the streets seeking for an assignation with
him 1 Noshe met him a guileless unsophis
ticated child The man who had reached
years of discretion and would steal from
woman the dearest thing on earth to her
was base and not the whitesoulded indi
vidual pictured by the prosecution He
worked upon this girls pity and
won her love To pity and to
love was to be womanly and sweet She
gave to this man unworthy as ho was her
whole heart Judge Powers then sketched
with masters hand the Olson homo when
Frank Hal entered it Continuing ho
asked who it was that broke this casket of
virtue I was Frank Hall A man who
would betray such a trust as was placed in
Frank Hall was unworthy to walk upright
in the image of His Maker He played upon
that girls heart strings until sho gave to
him her very heart and life lying at his
feet every hope she had in life He then
did that which earned for him the thunder
bolt which the Almighty hurled down upon
him He deserted her in the midst of the
sorrow and shame he had brought upon
her and she felt that the finger of scorn
was pointed at hershe whose life had
been as sweet as the breath of the morning
she whose presence was the sunlight of the
household When Hall deserted her she
felt that she was bankrupt in everything
No man could conceive how she felt be
cause no man had the womans heart But
she buried her secret even though
each night trouble fanned her
sloop Hours grew into days and
days grew into weeks and weeks grew into I
months and still sorrow was her compan i
ion Was it any wonder that her womanly
nature broke down A mental earthquake
visited her mind Judge Powers hero
reached the subject of insanity and said
that this disease was preceded by a change
in the physical nature of woman One form
of insanity was melancholia and all the
physicians who testified recognized that
Amanda Olson was suffering from that be
fore tho shooting Virtue was the founda
tion of the state and the corner stone of thd
home Was not the seducer warring
against the peace of the commonwealth J
After discussing the law for some time
Jude Powers turned his atten
tion to Hall and said that the
first murder committed in this
tragedy was when Hall murdered this girls
life went east for ten months and caused a
lying message to be sent to this girl that he
hat gone to Montana But still she loved
him and when she looked from her window
that morning after his return and saw him
she fell to tho floor senseless I had been
charged that she was jealous He believed
it and when a those passions ot love and
jealousy were aroused in her breast was it
any wonder she was swept from her feet
Then she turned to her mother her first
comforter and told her of her trouble The
mother fearing for her daughters life
brought her down town to see Hall Ho
condescended to meet her at the head of
Commercial street and then he took her to
that beautiful little place in Commercial
street In the first place any man who
would take a girl to such a place ought to
have his bead broken The girl had evidently
dently reached the point of desperation
because she was now pleading with this
man to do her justice He only laughed at
her and again insulted her The girl left
her mind filled with the most terrible emo
tions for she realized that the end had
come at last and her life was a complete
wreck The judge then rapidly sketched
the occurrences until the fatal Monday
dwelling upon the facts that she neither
ate nor slent and that her parents decided
to send her to California up to the
time the girl and her mother came
I down town on Monday to buy a
trunk he believed she contemplated
suicide and it was difficult to decide
whether she thought of killing Hall or her
self when she purchased that pistol Re
turning home she wrote the letter which
we characterized as the product of a miric
diseased She had no idea that she would
meet Hall that night but as she went up
the hill she saw the man and Mrs Hart
coming towards her The girl felt that she
could not meet them and turned back to tho
corner where she stopped According to the
testimony her eyes had a devilish look and
her face a vacant stare As they passed
she made a last wild appeal but the man
dj <
said nothing and passed on From that
time until after the shot was fired she
knew nothing He then went on to review
the evidence given by the many persons
who saw her at the city hal and testified
that she did not look like a sane person
He had no doubt about the verdict because
there never a introduced a more perfect
defense than in this case A verdict of not
guilty ought to be rendered without the
jury leaving the box I was left for them
to say just what value the men of Utah
placed upon womans virtue It seemed
that Amanda Olsons hand was sustained
by the Almighty and the leaden
bullet was one of Heavens thunderbolts
Into their hands he placed that little girl
besought them t treat her as they would
have their daughters treated
Tudge Powers conclusion was one of
such thrilling eloquence that any synopsis
would fail to do justice to it I was the
effort of his life and though he had spoken
three solid hours he hold all who heard him
spellbound and at the conclusion a spon
taneous burst of applause swept through
the crowded court room This demonstra
tion was quickly checked however and
one individual who applauded was brought
before tho court by Deputy Marshal Bush
and fined 810 The amount of the fine was
promptly contributed by the crowd as the
man passed through the room
Mr Varian then commenced his discus
sion to the court on the requests to charge
and occupied the time until after 5 oclock
when tho court adjourned until 7 oclock
with the understanding that the closing ar
gument for the prosecution would be made
I the evening Varian commenced the
closing argument After speaking for an
hour or more his voice gave out and tho
case was continued until this morning at 10

A Glimpse at the Building Booii
General Notes
SalfLake today presents a very happy
contrast with either Omaha Kansas City
and other towns that have had their day
A recent article in the Omaha nuildHcrald
admitted that Kansas City contained over
lif teen hundred empty business houses and
residences that Omaha had probably over
four hundred and that other of the boom
cities of the east were in a similar con
dition Salt Lake has no demand for
tenants but there is a demand for business
houses and residences
Our Fame is Spreading
A HERALD reporter yesterday met Mr
John Jones jr and learning that he had
traveled extensively and had finally decided
to locate in Salt Lake asked him why he
had selected this city in preference to
others which he had visited In response
Mr Jones made the following explanation
which speaks much for the future of Salt
UI have been traveling almost constantly
for the past ten years and during the last
two years have been in nearly every town
in the west I have been looking carefully
into the advantages and resources of the
various towns with the view of selecting
one which I wanted to make my home I
have since April 20 visited all the princi
pal cities and towns in Colorado
Nevada Montana Wyoming Idaho Utah
and California as far south as San Diego
and I regard Salt Lake as the point ot the
United States and I have good reasons for
my conclusions There must be a city be
tween Denver and San Francisco and no
point has the advantages that Salt lake has
to become a great city There is no reason
why this city cannot have at least 100000
people within the next few years Salt
Lake today the best advertised city in
the United States and in every town I
have visited people are talking of Salt
Lake and hundreds are only waiting to dis
pose of their possessions before removing
here There is no city or town that is at
tracting such universal attention and for
which every one who knows anything of
the city has such a good word I looked
carefully over the Oregon and Washington
towns but a week of their weather satis
fied me They call it a mist but I noticed
that ladies never ventured out while I was
there without rubber boots gossamers and
umbrellas Things are quiet everywhere
i but in Salt Lake I was here last spring
and looked over the city and when I re
turned the other day I was really suprised
at the great improvement which had been
made Another thing which I noticed is
that a few months ago people went on to
the coast and on an average 500 persons
would stop over on a coast town but now
these towns are comparatively de
serted while I notice that the streets
of Salt Lake are crowded This
region is attracting considerable attention
as a resort for those afflicted with lung
troubles and I know a number of persons
who are here on that account and are being
benefited and I know of many other
afflicted persons who anticipate coming
Salt Lake has only one fault and that is the
high rents but this Is even a good sign
The chance for investment here in build I
ing is not equaled in any city in the Union
and I dont see why everybody who has
the money to buy real estate and build does
not do it All that Salt Lake needs is more
capital As far as my experience goes Salt
Lake above all other points is the place to
enjoy health and make money Trades
men and manufacturer of all kinds are
being almost driven out of other cities and
forced to seek other quarters where com
petition has not ground business almost out
of existence I have come hero to make
this my home and will bring my family
business after the first of the year and engage in

He Thinks the Workinscmen are Entitled to
Considerable Credit
To the Editor of THE HERALD
A recent issue of your journal contained
the following paragraph and with your
permission I would bo pleased to make a
few comments on the same for reasons
which will bo fully shown to any who may
read this communication
Before THE HERALD reaches the public again
on its mission cf light right and libertyCharles
Ellis will have added to all three the power and
values of his unsurpassed lecture entitled Dls
franchlsement is a Crime The lecture will be
given in the theatre Doors open at 730 lec
ture at 8 Admission 25 and 60 cents Mr Ellis
has done more hard and honest work to got
possession of the facts In regard to the Utah
question than any man who has ever come here
as a nonMormon and he is the only outsider
who having found the truth lies had the cour
age to maintain it in the face and teeth or his
snarling threatening enemies Mr Ellis de
serves n crowded house tomorrow night
My intention here is not to enter on a
criticism of the gentlemans lecture
Mr Ellis is credited with doing more
hard and honest work to get possession of
the truth on the Utah question than any
nonMormon who has ever come to Utah
This may be so and may not bo so The
gentleman has probably had as mucn time
as any outsider to procure facts bearing on
the question but I rather doubt if he has
had the practiced knowledge that can al
ways be obtained through association with
the masses in everyday life and business
What I take serious exception to is the
statement that having found the truth he
Mr Ellis was the only one who had the
courage to maintain it I believe Mr
Editor you wrote an editorial just after tha
August election stating in substance that
the loaders in the Independent Working
mens movement were the men who had
shown that they had the courage of their
convictions and they were certainly tbe
men who inaugurated thenntidisfranchist
ment campaign They were the men who
boldly took the lead in babalf of right and
truth who incurred the displeasure and
disfavor of all their supposed political
enemies and many of their friends and in
behalf of American freedom and justice
broke down the bulwarks of the dis
ranchiaoment mob and created consterna
tion and dismay all along the line Those
were the men who chiefly composed of
pronounced nonMormons from the stump
and through the press had the courage of
their convictions to arraign this un Ameri
can crowd to expose the infamy of their
methods and their political corruption
They broke tho ice and fathomed the
the stream and despite ridicule and abuse
formulated a platform and organized a po
litical party upon the broad American plat
form of equal rights to all regardless of
creed It has been shown that this plank
of the Independents was not unpopular It
was right and consequently must prevail
It has shown itself in the same way on
other questions of great public import
When public sentiment leans toward the
support of any movement of reform and
right then shall the cause find supporters
by the hundred So it is with the disfran
chisoment question Truthful history
shall record to the credit of the
Independent Workingmens party of
Salt Lake county the honorable
merit of formally inaugurating the anti
disfranchisemenfc crusade It is now in
order in order for Mr Ellis or any other
libertyloving American to help loom this
good wttrk but let the paternity of the
infant child never be impeached
The Very Neat Manner in Which He was
Served With a Summous
Special to THE HEKALD Examiner Dispatch
Nzw YORK Dec 0Jay Gould went to
bed last night in an unhappy frame of
mind The sanctity of his home had been
invaded the conference with the other
magnates of the street had been inter
fered with and he had been served with
papers in a damage suit the service of
which he bad long avoided The process
of serving is ordinarily an easy thing for a
lawyers clerk Men who are to bo served
anticipate the service and are ready for it
Sometimes however they do not desire to
receive the papers ana then an expert
server is called in Among those who nave
a reputation for this sort of work is J
Frank Auburn He is of the size shape
and appearance to don almost any disguise
effectively and ho has the courage neces
sary to perform his duties To him was
given the assignment to servo Jay Gould
with a summons in a damage suit brought
by John Henry Hall against the Manhattan
Elevated railroad company for 55000 and
he was ordered to go to the wizards house
last night and deliver the summons nod
complaint to bin if possible He started
out early in the evening for the handsome
mansion at Fortyseventh street and Fifth
avenue Mr Auburn wore a gray plaid
mackintosh over his dark suit ot clothes
On his first application to see Mr Gould
Buttons declared the master was inex
in vain Mr Gould had tola him he said
that he wished nothing but quiet and in
fact would have nothing else The process
server made a bow to Buttons said good
evening and withdrew As Mr Auburn
was crossing Fortyseventh street to go i
to the Windsor hotel two messenger boys I
were met The big boy was just about
Mr Aubnrns size A tip made the big
boy easer to exchange coats and hats
temporarily for those of Mr Auburn A
second attempt was made to reach Mr
Gould but Buttons was wide awake
He would not let the messenger boy go to
Mr Gould but ho was quite willing to
carry the message himself
A new move was determined on Mr
Auburn went to the Windsor hotel where
he took off his Mackintosh He was then
clad in a darksuit and derby hat and car
ried a silver headed cane He decided
however that he needed a high silk hat
He also decided that the silk hat must be
too large for him and settle well down on
his ears Such n hat was obtained from a
friendly hackinan and in that disguise
Buttons allowed the processs server to
enter the house He was ushered to the
back parlor door where he was met by Jay
Gould and his son George The latter
assumed a rather belligerent attitude and
seemed to be about to resent the intrusion
but Mr Gould interfered and said My
boy what can I do for you I
Mr Gould was the answer I have a
paper bore I wish you would read At
the same time he handed Mr Gould the
summons and complaint entered by John
Henry Hull against the New York Elevated
railway company ot al
Dont you think you did wrong to in
vade ray home asked Mr Gould
No sir said Mr Auburn It is a
difficult thing to find you at your office
and I was sent to give this to you at the
earliest moment hence I was obliged to
call here
