Reprc8cntnllves of the Knights ot

a member, also nttended tho services.
Since tho death ot Mr. Connor many
stories concerning tho ploneor are re
called. Back In tho '70s ho becamo Interest
ed In mining for tho first tlmo. Ho
financed somo Spaniards In a mlno
called tho Sunnysldo, on Lion Hill, In
Tooelo county. On tho property there
was a splendid showing of horn ttllvcr
and Mr. Connor was offorod 1100,000
for tho mlno, which was n largo sum
for those early days. Ho haughtily
rejected tho offer. His sons woro
then engaged In tho mnnngomont of
n lumber mill, nnd tho pioneer, bellov
Ing that fortune Bmlled upon them, In
formed them that tho rise and fall ot
lumber would soon ceaso to Interest
tho family. But tho Sunnysldo proved
to be merely n Burfaco showing and
tho pioneer's dream of millions van
ished. Mr. Connor was extremely conserv
ative about all matters of politics and
religion. When tho agitation relatlvo
to religious questions wns at Its
height In Utah ho refused to take a
part, lnslstlng'thnt as long as ho kept
on good term's with his own con
science ho had fullllled all that could
eb expected of him. It was tho Bame
In politics. Ho kept on good torms
with himself and let others do tho
"hurrahing."
