MRS COOK SUICIDES
Mlas Westphal Who Wa to be Mrs

injc Frank With Fornication Mrs
Cook Grew Desperate for Money
On Tuseday of this week it came to
the ears of THE DISPATCH that ut least
one some said three ofthe boys of
Provo had skipped It was said that
the cause of their skipping was that
they hud seen old man Westphal
from Pleasant Grove in Provo hob
nobbing with lawyers and with officers
and they feared arrests were to follow
Mr Westphal is an aged and thor
oughly respectable gentleman and
a good citizen He is now in sore
trouble
On that same day the writer
of this received a letter from Frank M
Driggs of Pleasant Grove asking as a
friend that any sensational news
that might be received regarding him
be suppressed at least until he wrote
again Of curse that led to a search
Jar news The news was found It
was to the effect that Mr Drjggs and
Miss llachael Westphal had procured
a marriage license and that on the
evening before they were to have been
married That the bishop was at the
home of the father of the bridegroom
in time to tie the knot the
guests were all present the
supper was prepared and the
bride was there waiting for riggo but
Driggs came not Neither has he come
vet The cause of his sudden depart
ure it is said was that he learned why
the Provo boys were frightened wby
they ran away
P M Driggs is a talented young
man and a young man who has hereto
fore borne a most enviable reputation
For years he has been instructor in the
school for the deaf in Salt Lake city
Warrants are now out for his arrest on
a charge of fornication alleged to have
been committed with Rachael West
phal at Geneva on July 11th 1892
Driggs friends say that at that time
ie was keeping company with
Bachael but that since he has not kept
company with her It is also said that
Jriggs was compelled at the mouth of
A revolver in the hands of Doc
Westphal a brother of the girl to take
out the marriage license That Driggs
won the affections of the girl in 1892
and when he threw her up she was
brokenhearted and that that was the
cause of her downfall and why he wag
asked to marry her When Drigga met
Westphal and the revolver he
Driggs had just returned from a visit
to the midwinter fair
Full confidence was had in Mr
Driggs as he has been known as a
w key il4m + L
tl oroughly reliable man and a gentle
min in every sense ot the word and
the publication of this matter was
withheld but his promised letter never
came The whole story is now public
property and Driggs is in the eyes of
the public a villian who has outraged
female innocence
ANOTHER PLEASANT GROVE SENSATION
Mrs Mary Maria Cook was an un
fortunate Pleasant Grove girl whose
husband left with the Carterites when
they passed through the county She
had a young babe and determined to
raise money to help support herself and
it by forging a check She passed at
Drives millinery store a check on the
Provo Bank of Commerce made out to
Annie Davis for the sum ol 10315
placing the dollar mark after the ten
and signed the name of 0 E Carey
The check circulated in the town and
was sent to Walker Bros Fyler Co
of Salt Lake city It was sent by this
firm to the Walter Brothers Bank and
by that bank to the Deseret National
Bank and then it came to Provo for
collection
The Provo Bank of Conmerce is now
the bank of Swasey Martin and they
retused to receive the check 0 E
Cary of the Elsworth fruit farm was
supposed to have drawn it but the
signiture was 0 E Carey and he took
no further interest in the matter The
check finally went back to Pleasant
Grove and Frank Beers a merchant
accused Mrs Cook of having started
the check in circulationit being traced
to her She yesterday acknowledged
the forgery and paid Mr Beers 5 on
the check
Yesterday she went to Clark Bro
thers store bought a bottle of strych
nine swallowed it and died in terrible
convulsions It is supposed the discov
ery of her forgery led to the rash deed

SOME MORE Of IT
Another Batch of Enquirer
Charges Proven False
IT ADMITS NEARLY HALF
Of Its Original Charge Against The
County Officers was FalseThe Other
Half is Squally False Its Cowardly
Stab at GashOther Matters
The Enquirer for some time past has
been charging and repeating falsely of
course that the officers of Utah county
have been using up 80 per cent of the
county taxes in salaries This paper
tonk occasion to notice these false
charges and on Thursday last laid be
fore the public some of the facts and
figures as they are of record and the
Enquirer man squirms
Because THE DISPATCH took for a
basis from which to calculate the total
receipts of the county direct taxes li
censes and other moneys which go
into the treasury the Enquirer last
night essays to make a great ado slid
say that we were wrong because it has
been talking of the county tax alone
over which the county court i has abso
lute control and which alone it ex
pends It knows as well as it knows
anything that its whole aim has been
to leave the impression on the minds
of its readers without saying it in so
many words that the county officers
are using up yearly 80 per cent in sal
aries of all the money they receive
It may not know it but it is true
nevertheless that the connty court ex
pends all the money that comes into
the treasury except the school tax
and there was 1575 00 in licenses
S89S6S in lines and other amounts
paid into the treasury that brought the
grand total up to the figures given by
THE DISPATCH on Thursday and the
county court expended the whole
amount in 1893 except 1257 36 left in
the treasury
THE DISPATCHS figures were right
but the Enquirers own figures
changes its percentages from 80 and 20
to 53 and 47 Perhaps another attempt
or two will bring them down about
right
As to the balance of the Enquirers
leading editorial of Friday ev nmit is
a safe twotooue bet that the republi
cans who read it are ashamed ot the
tactics and unfairness of their organ
Democrats who have read it only
laugh at it
That paper would make it appear
that the officers pocketed part per
haps all of the 30000 contingent fund
There are vouchers on file for every
quarter spent ot this amount The
Enquirer man or any citizen may see
them
There was 100000 paid out in plat
ting and mapping The plats and
maps were needed They are useful
very now that we have them It they
cost too much who is to blame The
money was all appropriated to Judge
Jones and he spent it all and with such
republicans as Charles De Moisy Mr
Buckler and Don R Coray No demo
crat got a smell of that thousand dol
lars and if there was any stealing
done as the Enquirer intimates there
was republicans alone did the steal
ing A most cowardly stab in the back of
one of our energetic enthusiastic
capable and successful county officers
is contained in the following which we
quote from the Enquirers article here
in referred to
Then there was an extra expeno of
some 200 atterneys fees in a test tax
case brought about by official incoin
potency It will be remembered the
county court hired help m the case
and it was whispered at the time that
it was bepause the county attorney
was unequal to the task of conducting
the case in question without more ex
perienced help
It will be remembered that the case
was one wherein the county had asses
Bed taxes on the Springyille pasture
and 160 acres of is was sold to Don C
Johnson for the taxesand that Spring
ville city brought suit against Mr
Johnson to quiet the title The county
of course took charge of the case for
Mr Johnson inasmuch as it had sold
the land to him Without consulting
Mr Gash and upon the urgent request
of Judge Jones that republican para I
con the count court determined to
carry the case on up to the court of last
resort if need beand employed Messrs
S K Thurman and George Sutherland
able attorneys both to help the prose
cuting attorney in the matter Mr
Gash did not ask for help nor did he
need any for that matter But of
course the Enquirer would make it ap
pear otherwise if it could It would
aleo lie in the matter for there never
was some 20000 attorneys fees
paid for the help in this case The
sum of 5000 only was paid and only
50 00 more will be paid when the case
comes up in the supreme court Even
if there had been Mr Gash would not
be censurable and besides he saved to
the county more than twice that
amount by succeeding in having the
greedy Judge Joness bills for work
not done for the county reduced As
well might the Enquirer apcuse City
Attorney WbitecoUon of incompet
ency because that D D Houtz has
been paid a S1COOO retainer by the re
publican city council for his services to
assist Mr Whitecotton in the water
suit pending and with more reason foi
Mr Whitecotcon asked for the help
The 49000 used up in stationery and
books was not wasted The stationery
and books had to be purchased and are
now the property of the county and
part of the records
The quarantine account is d
on the nooks of the county and it will
prove eminently satisfactory to any
citizen who may desire to examine it
The Enquirer would have done well
to have omitted this sentence
Neither is there anything said of the
30000 that went to the county justices
of the 633 02 for criminal prosecu
tions Think of the saving to the
qonntv when this ocpenEe has hereto
fore been four aWl Jjve thousaud dol
lars yearly The justices brought in
bills in strict accordance with the
statute and each and every one of the j

bills was carefully audited 113 the court
We notice that the Enquirer never
forgets to bring in handsome bills
whenever it gets a chance and it is not
democratic either Its last bill against
the county was 750 for work worth
3 50 It has done the same am aunt of
work many times for private individ
uals for a dollar and for less
Sheriff Brown feeds prisoners well
three times a day for fifty cents per
day and its not the courtf duty to
figure up his profits If the Enquirer
wants to know what those profits are
let it ask Mr Eleiner of the restaurant
The imformation he will give the En
quirer we assure it will not be such as
to induce it go into the hostelry busi
ness It must be remembered that the
food Sheriff Brown feeds his prison
ers is good food far better than hat
which the writer in the Enquirer ate
when he was a prisoner in the peni
tentiary and of which he was no doubt
thinking when he wrote
And the Enquirers article closes
with a lie of an even 500000 There I

Wars Modern horrors Will Jon Var
Various experiments with the new ri
fles which have recently taken place in
Germany have demonstrated in a A tn
conclusive manner that another war
would practically be one of annihilation
A well known French writer in an ar
ticle which ho devotes to the subject to
day says that the battlefield would at the
termination of the engagement be cov
ered with 200000 or 300000 corpses all
crushed and broken and wonJJtonothi
ing but a vast charnel house No one
would be left to bury the dead and pesti
lence would in its turn sweep away the
country people Pointing the moral he
adds that the manemperor king or
president of the republic who under
these conditions would expose the hu
man race to such a fate would be the
greatest criminal that the world had
ever seen It is tolerably plain that the
horrors and the butchery which a war
would entail are becoming more and
more recognized and that the terrible
vista thus opened out is exercising a
sobering effect on those who were for
merly wont to discuss various eventu
alities with a light heart London Tele

The Parisian Straining After tho Horrible
Introduces a Growsonie Custom
The Paris correspondent of the Glas
gow Herald has been dwelling on the
strange taste for the horrible and grew
some which at the present moment char
acterizes the performances at cafe con
certs in the gay city The culminat
ing point in this direction seems to have
been reached at a cabaret just opened
in the Boulevard Rochechouart which
goes by the name of the Cabaret de la
Mort
This grimly baptized place of amuse
ment is but a few yards distant from the
popular music hall known as the Gaiete
Rochechouart where rollicking fun is the
order of the day and songs of too broad
a description to suit the taste of Senator
Beranger are encored with indescribable
enthusiasm by nn audience composed of
the peculiar class of society to be met
with in the Montmartre district and its
surroundings
Remembering the traditional respect
and veneration in which the French hold
the dead the correspondent was sur
prised to find ifc largely patronized On
entering the low roofed house the door
of which is ornamented with a deaths
head and crnssbones a visitor is some
what taken aback to find himself in the
presence of a number of croquemorts
mutes dressed precisely as they are for
a funeral Thesp are the waiters who
are forbidden to smile to talk cheerfully
or to accept any gratuity and whose
solemn facts very suggestive attire lit
up by a weird gijeen light and generally
mournful aspect cast a chilly feeling
upon one In spite of the knowledge that
all is assumed
There vas moreover o very unpleas
ant amen about the place due no doubt
to the fart that the coffins which do duty

Storms on tho Sun
The velocity with which solar storms
move is very great and they sometimes
extend over a space several times as
large as the wholo of the earths sur
face In common parlance they are
called sun spots but as they aro
known to have a rotary motion exactly
similar to terrestrial cyclones they may
be regarded as true solar storms It has
been computed by eminent astronomers
that these sun storms move with the
astonishing velocity of 120 miles per
second and we can best form an ade
quate conception of what the force of
such a storm must be by comparing it
to an earth storm moving at 100 miles
an hour which is indeed a terrible hur
ricane Carlington and Hodgson tho
English astronomers describe a sun
storm which traveled 85000 miles in
five minutes and in 1871 Professor
Young of Cincinnati witnessed one that
traveled 100 miles per second for 45
minutes and constantly threw sheets of
flame and fiery matter to a height of
not less than 200000 miles above the
suns disturbed surface ISt I Louis Re

Double Flowers
Nearly all the double flowers of gar
dens were first found wild Double but
tercups double primroses double Dai
sies double roses and many other things
were first discovered among their wild
fellows and introduced into the gardens
The florist however can produce dou
ble flowers He watches this tendency
in nature If a flower usually has five
petals and lie discovers that some of
too stamons have somewhat of a petal
like character the pollen is taken from
these flowers and others in a normal
condition fertilized with this pollen
The tendency once started is then giv
en to the progeny Almost any species
of plant will in this way be capable
of producing double flowers It is sur I
prising that with this knowledge more
attempts at this lino of improvement in
ordinary garden flowers are not made
