SA > TJY HILL X Y August 13This
whole region is in a turmoil of excite
ment over an assault committed on
Saturday night by two negroes upon
Mis Mary Cook and daughter the
wife and child of a Justice of the Peace
of IS elton a village across the IJudson
and the sudden death of Justice Cook
resulting from the horrible crime Jus
tice Cook was a welltodo farmer of
Welton about 45 years of age On
Sunday Mrs Cook and daughter drove
t Does corners for household supplies
They were expected back at 8 p m
About that hour Justice Cook while
talking ith two neighbors in his yard
noticed two negioes driving past in a I
buggy SoJn afterwards the trio were
started by 1 womans scream repeated
again and again
My God said Mr Cook thats
my Marys voice 1 must go to her
The three men ran up the road and
half a mile from the house they found
Mr Cooks team and vehicle empty
The negroes were seen to enter the
buggy and drive away Mr Cook
called for his wile and daughter frantically
tically but no responses came
search was made and evidences of a
struggle were found by a ditch A
little further on Mr Cook stumbled
against the insensible body of Mrs
Cook She was carried into the road
and although alive was unable to
speak a word Her clothing was torn j
from her body and everything indi I
cated that she had been liltreated 1
an inhuman manner The sight was
more than the husband could stand
Boys I cant see i he exclaimed
and fell to the ground a corpse
The bodies of Mr Cook and his
wife were put on the wagon and taken
to the homestead J3y this time there
were no tidings of the daughter a girl
of 10 hind a party started to search for
her with lanterns In less than an
hour they returned with the girl who
Was almost bereft of her gr She
was lound hiding in the woods and
from her was learned the story of the
Ybeii the negroes met the women i
the road they slopped aid one of them
siezed the horse driven by the women
lie the other dragged Mrs Cook
from the wagon Miss Carrie dealt the
miscreant a blow in the face with an
umbrella Then the fellow who had
held the horses attacked the girl but
the contest was unequal To save bet
self from fate worse than death the
girl rushed wildly through tlft uyder
brush the negro pursuing lier l yifv she

r i later Her clotliirTfi was nearly ijfll torn
from her and she was more dead than
alive when found The chie of the

this plice and jailed them Later they
were taken t Saratoga

Jor lie tjkise III Thought to Hen Hlow
at Germany
BEULIX August 13It was at first
believed that the Russian ukase was directed i
rected at Germany but the government I
now appeals to be convinced that it
was prompted by economic motives
The German import of rye in the last
decade amounted to about a sixth oJ I
her own product but the failure of the
German crop this year makes the situa
tion more serious
The latest statistics however leave
ground for hope that the harvest will
be better than was expected
Reports of a raise in the price of rye
in Holland caused a further raise of 1
Irk here today but toward the close
the price receded 2 marks Wheat
advanced 3 marks on unfavorable re
ports from New York
LONDON August 13The Times
correspondent at St Petersburg says
In certain well informed circles here
it is maintained that the harvest will in
no way be as bad as pretended The
rye crop is not small enough to warrant
the prohibition The ukase is rather
considered as a politica move against
Germany and Austria

Yesterday and Some Interesting Facts
and Divulged by Him
Prom Fridays TKiilr
J E Rhodes of the firm of Rhodes
Bros Denver Colo one of the gentle
men who wrote to Mayor Booth in regard
gard to waterworks for Irovo ai rived i
in this city yesterday morning and
spent the forenoon making inquiries
t with reference to the outlook for a sys
tem of waterworks
11 Rhodes is a man about medium
heiirhtaml build dark complexioned
and of pleasing and engaging manner I
He was seen by the reporter at the
Cosmopolitan hotel and on being intro
duced at once entered into an agree
able conversation during which he
stated that the firm he represented had
every facility for putting in a complete
system of waterworks
What do you think a good system
for Provo would cost asked the re
About 8120000 considering the
location Mains could be laid
from the canyon to a large
reservoir so that in case
of the river going down there would
till be a good supply of water left
This amount of money would lay about
fifieu miles of mains throughout the
city Of course I cant say much about
the details until our engineer has been
over the ground There is this to be
considered that we will take bonds in
payment and when the system is com
pleted it will belong to the city so that
they can place the water tax at what
ever they deem reasonable and can ex
tend the system as they please A
franchise system would not give them
this opportunity
How long would it take you to complete I I
of here
plete a system waterworks I
Well sir we have experienced men I I
and lots of material on hand at all
time and after our engineer has made
his returns we will submit a proposi I
tion tw the city here I the Council
accepts our proposition we will have
the whole system completed ij ninety
When will your engineer be here
HOle week from today lie will go
over the grounds and I will be ready
t wait on the City Council in about
two weeks Our linn will do all that
lays in their power to put in a good
system and at a figure as cheap as can
be done anywhere We guarantee all
our work and should we be awarded
the contract Provo will have as com
plete a system as any town in the West
The size of the mains cannot be de
termined until our engineer has made a
survey of the grounds

ty Salt Luke City Utah
JJzAU SiR Your communication of
the 10th hist is received All thiu s
in my opinion are tending to make
this a fruitful year for Utah territory
Foremost among the events militating
in that direction is the approaching
first great interstate i irrigation congress
of the western hemisphere the results
of which will be so farreaching and so
productive of real substantial good to
the great growing west in general and
Utah in particular as to be at first in
corn preIJellsi le
The after scope and the enduring re
sults to follow the birth of this embry
onic organization are practically with
out limit Embracing as it will in its
personnel icprepcntative men from all
of the great industrial scientific and
polytechnic organizations of the great
west no one at this time can fore
shadow its magnitude draw the line of
limit on its field of actioli nor signify
the full measure of its importance
I need not indicate to you that fol I
lowing as per arrangement in the wake
of this great interstate congress the
Territorial Fair of 1S91 should be made
especially attractive Special features
culled from the harvest of this most
bountiful year briucing into bold re
lief the agricultural possibilities nay
accomplishments this and other
fertile valleys of our fair territory
under our present imperfect sytem of
irrigation should be given great prom
inence in our coming exposition
Your note is a sufficient earnest of
the fact that vour directors are full
alive to the paramount importance of
this annual fair I need thorp t fore on
to assure you that I will use my best
endeavor to enlist the hearty coopera
tion and assistance of the f directors of
the Chamber of Commerce in your ef
forts to make this our annual Territor

The News of the Charges Carried to Him
By An Interested Friend and Mr
Driggs Promptly Returns
Special to the Morning Dispatch
riggs Jr of this city concerning
whom so many scandalous ports have
been circulated charging him with em
jezzlement and other crimes returned to
Salt Lake today ready and anxious to
wait the charges Immediately on
pmuilicmttion of the news T n Jid a
l QJfifthp l I ot

to TetofY basin Idaho knowing Mr
Driggs was in an out of the way place
and not likely to get the papers Mr
Todd sure enough took the first news
to Mr Driggs and no time was lost by
Mr Driggs in coming back He board
ed the first train leaving the locality
brin ing his family with him
LYTBU Mr Drigjjs statement to
your correspondent is as follows II It
having been assei ted that I had left
the territory Utah permanently I
have this to say For time past three
years I have spent a part of the sum
mer at my ranch in Teton basin Idaho
and this year I had
additional business etc that
requited my attention there which I
i expected to accomplish this month
antI return to Salt Lake the latter part
of August but such a report having
ing been published I left
matters there and returned by the first
stage I have never intended to wrong
any person My property is at the dis
posal of my creditors and my life for
that matter if it will satisfy them
though the former would pay two to
one in a fair market My investments
are all in Salt Lake 1 left Salt
Lake with not enough money
to pay my fare home The
assertion that I had got out of mv cred
itors from V50000 to 75000 is basely
false I have borrowed not to exceed
j o000 and that is mostly secured by
real estate thit cost 40000 before the
boom was fully on and at the market
price would now be worth over 50000
besides stocks bonds and
other reserved property I
deny any and all assertions that any
of the same has been acquired or
money obtained by misrepresentation
on my part I am aware of some mis
takes having been made but partly
through agents and not by any intent
on my part to deceive anyone Mr
Driggs is much distressed over the
turn affairs have taken and stoutly
maintains his innocence

A Few Plain Facts Paralyzes
Republican Theories
A Traveling Man Who Sells Tin Plate
Has a Few Words to Say Whersin Did
McKinley Reduce the Prico of Tin
Of course to the thinking man all this
bugaboo about high tariff reducing the
price to consumers of any articles of
merchandise upon which it is placed is
taken as so much of thefroth of shallow
minds that have been sadly stirred up
In the late campaign the McKinley
bill was lauded to the skies by people
who knew little if anything about what
theY Were speaking
Tin plate was the great cry with local
Republicin orators Its cost to the I
consumer was to be reduced and Am
erican tin plate was goin to be used
but now all this glowing talk is knocked
cold by a few statements
from a man who makes his
living by selling tin plate
Mr McMahon representing Rector
IlheImy Co of Chicago was in
town yesterday and from quite a chat
which a reporter had with him we cull
he following which speaks in thunder
ing tones and needs no einbishment by
is or wordy arguments Facts speak
louder and stronger than any article
we might write or oration an orator
night deliver
Mr McMahon is soliciting
orders for tin plate and our le
porter was detailed to interview him
After stating to the gentleman the
object of the interview hesaid he would
cheerfully give any information lie
could In answer to the question as to
how the price of tin plate compared
with that of eight months ago he re
> lied that there was a difference of
from 2 to 8225 higher per box In the I
last thirty days the price had risen 100 I
I box on stock tin The price is about
3 a box higher on roofing tin and
about 225 a box on stock tin in the I
last twelve months
Well what do you consider is the
cause of the advance in the price
queried the reporter
Whey the McKinley bill he
promptly replied
What is the outlook for a decrease
in the price
Tliern will not be any decrease but
an advance will take place immediate
ly and other advances will follow
Does your firm handle tmieh tin
We handle 20000 boxes of plate per
annum and receive it direct from the
HIs the advance in price the same
with eastern firms as it is with you
Yes sir
In regard to the output of Ameri
can tin how much tin can the Ameri
can mines supply
The mines will scarcely turn out
enough tin to uppIy a city as lar J

TlieTiogus Ensign
Yesterday their reached our ex
change table another paper We were
going to say a new paper and that in
reality is what it is although it calls
itself the Nephi Ensign It is a strange
coincidence that on THE DISPATCH are
employed the three gentlemen under
whose management aud proprietorship
the Ensign lived James T Jakeinan
John S Kollo and James S Wallis TIll
I plant paper and good will passed from
one to the other of these successively
The lastnamed tried to sell but the
sale fell through Therefore the Ensign
died is still dead and will remain dead
This newspaper steals the name to i
fatten upon the prestige the Ensign
had We are not complaining but it
is a little gaily for a starter
As another proof that this new paper
though called the Ensign is not the
Ensign The issue of Thursday last is
mote rocky in mechanical makeup
and in every way than was the first is
sue of the genuine Ensign The Ensign
during Us life grew prospered and im
proved In this latter paper there is
nothing to make one think of the En
sign other than the name
Abate the Nuisance
A well known biisipoos man of Provo
lands us the following following for
Few know of the pleasures and mis
eries that are indulged in within our
citys corporate limits These pleasures
can be indulged in without spending
money to go to pleasure resorts miles
away On Fourth street between G and
El is a pond where boating and fishing
ire indulged in right in the street and
we who live or have to pass that way
ire afraid our city officials will come
along some day and put a stop to our
fun changing things down that way
and giving the street a civilized aspect
Tearing pedestrians swearing because
they have to go back a block when they
come to the pond prompts me to give
his hint to the proper officials that
this nuisance may be abated

ST GEORGE Utah August 9For a

regularly to the polls and vote against
very Mormon interested He hud a
wife and two sons the latter aged IS
and 16
Manvthreats have been made against
Bell by the Mormons but as he and his
sons were known to be dead shots with
the rifle the opposition was confined
to tin eats Twice attacks were made
on Bell when he was out at night but
both times the assailants were worst
ed On the 6th August John Richrads
of this place had business with Bell
and rode out to his ranch to see him
When he got there he found the place
apparently deserted He thought the
family had gone away temporarily and
was just about to leave when his atten
