l'OlYVOAMISTS IN COUNT.
Bincc the ennctment of the Ed
munds anti-polygamy law theru
have been tried and convicted un
der that 'aw about Clio persons In
Utuh and 80 in Idaho. The num
ber of those convicted in Utah in the
last fiscal year was 320. Tlie cotirtH
aro still at work. Thegrand jury tliat
was disehtuged at l'rovoon the 20th
tilt, found il'il indictments, and al
most all of the indicted persons wcio
held tor violation of the laws relat
ing to polygamy.
Twenty-two of tho accused were
brought beforo tho First District
Court In Provo on the lflth ult. to
bo sentenced. Tho reports puli
Hulled in tho Salt Lake Herald, u
morning paper, throw some light
upon tho piesent attitude of poly
gamists toward the law. Haiss
Niijlbi'N was the ilrst on the lit.
Ho had two wives, and had married
tho feceond in 18(14. Ho declared
that he had not been living u 1th
ultherof tliem. Tho sentence was
three months In the penitentiary,
a lino of MOO, and tho costs. Tho
next convict was Kandoi.i'ii II.
Stnwakt, desciibed as "(ho man
with three wives and twenty-seven
children," and ho was sent to the
ponitontlaty for seven months.
Eiuc EiticsoN told tho court that
after caieful couslderatlou he had
determined to obey the law In the
future. "Yon may go home," said
tho Judge, WlI.l.lAM UltAlTH-
waiti: said that since his arrest he
had lived with his ilrst wife, and
that he did not intend to live again
with his second. In this easo sen
tence was Hi'spoudod. Jt was
shown that Ji.nb IIankkn had
taken three wives tho third twelve
years ago. The sentence was three
mouths, $.50, and the costs. Eia A.
Day had married "his last wife"
four yc'iru and a half ago. He
know at tho time, lie said, that ho
was violating tho law, and up to
July iiuth 1888, hu had lived with
two wives. Ho was sent to the
penitentiary for three months and
lined f 150.
John 1 Donus, 6tJ years old,
uald that he had man led his last
wife in 1871, and since the cuact
niont of tho law had lived only with
Ills Ilrst, although ho had occasion
ally visited "tho other family."
Four months, $T0, and costs. Qutv
Lahhkn admitted that when he
married his last wife, In 188-1, he
knew that he was breaking the law.
Hut ho "did not think tho law
would ury through' A uoutouoo
of live months and costs convinced
him that he had made a mistake.
Wim.iam CmtisTHKHKN, who mar
ried his last wife in lb81, would not
promise to give up all wives but
the Ilrst. He was lined $100 and
sent to prison for three niontlm.
Tho next culprit was a Mormon
llislmp named John Si-knckk, who
had boon living as a missionary
among the Indians. Ho declared
that ho had not taught the doctrine
of polygumy. Tho court sent him
to the penitentiary for four mouths.
1'ifi'Kit S. AniihiuiON proinltod to
olniy tho law, and his .sentence was
suspended. KtcuAitn Jknkins
would have no suuh promUe, and
his punUlunont was four months

At the trials of such cates two years
ago tho accused commonly otTercd
an elaborate defense when the evi
dence was not overwhelming
against them. It docs not appear,
however, that In these days they
spend much money in employing
counsel to oppose the prosecutors.
Some of rhe defendants are willing
toappial for mercy by promising to
obey the law. Othets stubbornly
refuse to obey the law and take
their punishment with the spirit of
martyrs to the faith. It is noti
ceable, however, that the evidence
discloses no recent polygamous

apple one of them represented as
a large and good winter variety
come directly in class with Profess
or Claypolc's proposition to breed
out the troublesome core from the
best of our fruits. It Is worthy
of our attention, especially as the
trees are much more exhausted by
the production of seeds than by that
of their development, and usually
the more seeds, tho less eatable the
pulp and the harsher its quality.
