			"FIRST DISTRICT COURT.	
	     "Oleanth Jensen, of Clarkston, Cache County, charged with unlawful cohabitation, withdrew
	his plea of not guilty and pleaded guilty to the charge.  He was desirous of receiving sentence at
 	once as he wished to  have his punishment over by the opening of spring.  He was 49 years of age;
 	had three wives; married the first wife 21 years ago and the other two during the winter of 1881;
 	the two last were 29 and 34 years of age; his youngest children by them were 13 and 17 months
 	old; he had sixteen children in all; he was a bishop's counselor; had heard that there was a law
 	against polygamy.
	    "Court--I find that a great number of your people from Cache County, who have been here for
 	sentence have been to a great extent unacquainted with the fact that there is a law prohibiting
 	polygamy.  Now you are a bishop's counselor, and it is your duty to tell these people about these
 	matters.  You have not only neglected your duty in that respect, but you have set a bad example to
 	them.  You held an important position among them as a leader; you have taken an oath to uphold
 	the laws of the land and you deliberately broke them.  The sentence of the court in your case is
 	that you be confined in the penitentiary for six months and pay a fine of $300.
	    "Later on, the court stated that he had forgotten for the moment Mr. Jensen's plea of guilty
 	which should be taken into consideration and therefore diminished the fine to $100."

		        "Ill Feeling Developing on the West Side of the Valley."
	                      "Roads Changed Yearly.
		"They Rejoice That a Railroad Will Relieve Them When the County Court Fails.
	       "Ill-feeling, or bad feeling, or disgusted feeling about the roads on the west side of the valley
 	is growing among the people living there.
	       "Said one man, 'The county never spends a dollar of the general taxes for our benefit.  We
 	have our own poll taxes applied on our roads, and each year we are part of the work done the year
 	before in some man's field.'
	       "Said another, 'For ten years our road has been changed in some place every year, and I am
 	getting d--d tired of seeing my poll tax put on a road this year which will be part of another man's
 	field next year.'
	       "'Your folks are kicking about the railroad coming on our side of the valley,' spoke up
 	another.  'But we thank God for it.  Poor as it may be, or bad as it may treat us, it will never be as
 	poor as the roads our county court gives us, nor will it treat us as  badly as our county court treats 	us.'
	       "Then the reporter asked for an instance of bad treatment.  'Why, the roads are changed every
 	year.  It is switched this way and that to accommodate every Tom, Dick and Harry who want to
 	save a little fencing.  The wishes of the people who travel the roads seem never to be consulted.
  	Why, the road that runs to Weston and Clarkston has been changed again this summer, and the
 	people are driven half a mile out of our way and the road made longer and longer each year to
 	accommodate some individual.  On the east side of the valley all efforts are being made to shorten
 	the roads and make them direct, and you have had railroads.   On our side of the valley we are not
 	even left alone to try and make a road that will be the same for two years hand running.  We have
 	to go to Logan to pay our taxes, to record our deeds, to attend meetings of all kings, and we are
	driven around in every conceivable manner.  Thank God the railroad is coming.  We will give
 	Logan a pretty wide birth after that.'
	      "Complaint is also being made about the location of the new bridge.  It has been asserted, and
 	many people believe it, that it is to be located at the nearest point to Smithfield and within two
 	miles of the present bridge.  They also assert that the road will have to run through clay beds and
 	mud holes, and that it will benefit no place but Smithfield, and be of no advantage except to
 	Newton of the other settlements.
	      "How true these assertions are we are not prepared to state, but it is bad to have people feel as
 	they do for any cause.  The road to the northwestern settlements should be made as direct as
 	possible and be permanently fixed, and improved to a fixed end.  A main thoroughfare that will 	give a good road to all settlements and tap them is what is needed, and the new bridge should be 	placed where it will do the most good to all the settlements--the nearest and most feasible point 	being the proper place.  If this puts the bridge nearest Smithfield well and good, that is where it 	should be, if nearest Richmond, the same; but it should be so placed that all will appreciate its 	benefits.
	      "As to the roads, the complaint seems to be just.  As to the bridge it will be found, we are
 	confident, that it is to be built where the greatest area of country and number of people will be
 	benefited by it."

 	complete reorganization effected of the Sunday school of that place.  There were of the party,
 	Superintendent Ormsby, Counselors Apperley and Reese, and E. T. H yde, stake secretary.
  	Arriving at the settlement named, the Sunday school was found to have convened, and class
 	exercises in progress.  The Sunday school had been heretofore conducted by  Supt. A. W.  Heggie
 	and counselors James Archibald and Ole Anderson.  Elder Heggie had been  the energetic
 	superintendent for many years, and it was desired to give him a well earned rest.  When the class
 	exercises had been completed, the following were sustained as the  officers of the Clarkston
 	Sunday school: Superintendent, James Archibald; counselors, Thos. Godfrey and Ole Petersen,
 	secretary, Elizabeth Griffith; treasurer, Sarah __?_ [ illegible paper torn]; librarian, Spencer
 	Godfrey; organist, P. S. Barston; assistant organist, James Clark; choir leader, Alma Jensen;
 	teachers, Bishop Jardine, Ola A. Jensen, A. W. Heggie, J. K. Loosle, Sylvia Thompson, Sarah
 	Loosle, Robt. Gover, Elvia Barston, Agnes Shumway, Letitia Godfrey and J. Homer.  The bishop
 	moved to honorably release the former efficient officers with a vote of thank, which was heartily
 	carried.  Remarks were made by the four visitors and many good instructions given.
  	Superintendent Ormsby and Apperley also instructed the officers after the school was out, upon
 	the duties devolving upon them.  The visitors were kindly treated by Bishop Jardine, and partook
 	of a hearty dinner at his comfortable residence.  At the meeting in the afternoon the party were
 	once more called upon to address the people, and again  interesting remarks were made, those of
 	the superintendent being especially instructive and earnest.  All were listened to with marked
	attention.
            "Clarkston is presided over by that steadfast pioneer, Bishop James Jardine, with Counselors,
 	A. W. Heggie and Ole Anderson.  It has an energetic Relief Society under President Mary Griffith,
 	Counselors Agnes Jardine and Mary P. Homer, and Secretary Jane Godfrey.  It has a progressive

 	then comes, however, the surrounding hills take upon themselves a coat of glorious green, and the 
	entire neighborhood becomes beautiful to see.  There is an abundance of water, shade and fruit
	trees, lucrene and grasses, garden plants and shrubbery and in fact every comfort that could be
 	desired.  The district school opened Monday and is ably conducted by Joshua Homer.
	       "At present the farmers are busily engaged garnering the crops.  The hum of the mower and
 	reaper and thresher is every where heard.  The bishop states that there is generally a bounteous
 	yield.  Dry farms yield an average of twenty bushels or more to the acre, and irrigated land much
 	more.  There is a good range near Clarkston and much excellent stock is raised.
	       "The party of visitors left for home, Sunday evening, with a pleasant memory of the visit
	they had experienced.  Skimming light along over the crest of the hill, and coming in sight of the
 	lovely garden spot called Cache, each one was made to feel that the inhabitants of this valley
 	occupy a place apart and above the rest."

	   "EDITOR JOURNAL.--I am here in Clarkston, at the home of Peter Barson, Esq., school
 	trustee, a most excellent talker.  But I have just introduced to him an attractive young lady that
	I brought here to teach school.  He will now likely leave me alone long enough to read the
 	JOURNAL and pen you a few lines.
	     "Please excuse me for not reading the last issue before, I was quite busy Saturday in
 	examinations with teachers and Sunday I attend Sunday school and go to church.
	     "Your editorial, my dear sir, is a fine production--fresh every word of it.  Locals, telegrams,
 	foreign and domestic news, report of C.C.E.I. etc., are all dished up in good style.  Well! Well!
 	and here comes notice of the mammoth prize drawing for JOURNAL subscribers.
	     "Right here I wish to ask a question.  Could not our editor so arrange the drawing of prizes that
 	the man who paid the first subscription in cash for the present volume, if he has been a regular
 	subscriber, and is now willing to do all he can to increase its circulation, without a commission,
 	draw one of the named prizes?  If he is a married man, it certainly would give him much pleasure
 	to present his wife with a nice bed-room set.
    	    "I must not forget to notice the commencement of a new story by Josephine Bowen.  But as
 	Brother Barson is calling me to dinner, let me ask for a little fatherly advice and I will read the
 	story to my wife the first evening we have no callers.  I am doing all I can to increase the
 	circulation of the JOURNAL, but objections are raised against these long stories.  People tell me
 	they would much prefer the space being filled with local matter.  Is what they say argument or
 	sophistry?  How can I meet these objections?  I am not finding fault, I like the stories.  If I didn't
 	like them I wouldn't say so, except in  confidence to the editor.  I have too strong a love for myself
 	to find fault with anything that appears in the JOURNAL.  In all the paper battles of the past, the

	      "No county in the Territory has such good roads as Cache--not even Salt Lake, and we doubt if
 	there is any county that really has so many roads to maintain. . . . Our roads are the admiration and
 	envy of all from other counties; and yet they are abominable in many ways.  By the present way of
 	doing the work, with all the possible energy this county can display . . . it will take fifteen to
 	twenty years before the roads will be in anything like the condition we could wish them to be.
  	While hauling gravel by team gives the team owners labor at low rates when employment for
 	teams is scarce, it is not economy for the farmers after all. . . .
	      "If Logan City and Cache County were jointly to purchase five miles of railroad with a dummy
 	engine and a few cars, and bond for them, the bonds could be floated at not to exceed six per cent
 	per annum.
	    "Then ten miles of road could be made where one is being made now.  It will take years, by the
 	present methods, to make roads that will do fall and spring and winter service  between the east
 	and west sides of the valley.  Take the road to Mendon or Benson as an example, and then on to
 	Newton and Clarkston.  In certain seasons of the years these sections are practically cut off from
 	the populous part of the county.  To make road that will connect them at all times with the east
 	side of the valley by hauling the material with teams would almost bankrupt the county, and would
 	take years, practically, to accomplish the work.  Bu by means of a driving engine, some cars, and a
 	few miles of rails, the work could be done in an incredibly short space of time. . . ."

 	favoring local self-government and explained his opposition to the carpet bag rule advocated by

 	places.  On the same machine, a few days later, Mr. Hans Larson had his left hand caught in the
 	cylinder teeth, breaking one finger and bruising the hand fearfully.  Dr. Thompson, of Clarkston,
 	who is a friend indeed, dressed the wounds and now the boys are getting along nicely.

 	prepared by the mother of the bride; then the nice presents were brought in--too many for the table
 	to stand under, so the floor was used as a substitute.

 	Roskelly, Sloan and Morris, imparted new life and vigor to the Young Men's Mutual Improvement
 	Association and gave very valuable instructions to the Young men.  Brother Andrew Jensen, the
 	Historical Record compiler, of Salt Lake city, favored us with a pleasant visit Saturday evening.
  	Brother Jensen talked for one hour and a half, to a large audience, about the necessity of keeping
 	records.  He also spoke of his travels in the east three years ago, when he visited Nauvoo, Kirtland,
 	Carthage and the hill Cumorah, and the place where the Prophet Joseph used to live.  The lecture
 	was a splendid treat and everybody went home satisfied.
	      "There is considerable travel through our little burg, many of those who come doing so for the
 	purpose of seeing the grave of Martin Harris which is a point of great interest, he being one of the
 	witnesses of the Book of Mormon.
	      "I remember taking two widow ladies to view the grave of this noted man, one of them being
 	my aunt, Jane Panther of Big Cottonwood Ward, Salt Lake County.  After gazing at the mound for
 	some time, she turned to me, and at the same time handed to me, and at the same time handed me
 	one dollar, saying: 'Brother Barson, I give you this to start a fund for the purpose of erecting a
 	monument over the grave of Brother Harris.'
	     "I still have that dollar with a trifle more also donated for the same purpose.  Bishop Jardine
 	with a few others was the first to make a move toward fulfilling this plan and erecting the
 	monument which shall mark the earthly resting place of Martin Harris.
	     "I feel satisfied there are many also would gladly subscribe to this monument and save to future
 	generation the burial place of one so favored of the Lord.

 	of the 16th inst. the sisters killed their surplus roosters for the great day of our Relief Society.  On
 	the morning of the 17th the carriages brought the old folks to the meeting house, there the brass
 	band was playing 'Long may be Live.'  At 10 the house was filled.
	     "With sister Carline [sic] Thompson, Sarah Shumway and Catherine Jardine presiding, the
 	meeting was called to order and all the Saints stood up and sang, 'Oh my Father' till they made the
 	valley ring.
	     "There was a nice programme prepared and all responded to the call, consisting of speeches,
 	songs, recitations, and solos by our brass band, with Mr. Alfred Clark leader, and Mr. Willard
 	Hanson president.
	     "At 12 o'clock sharp all sat down to a fine dinner already for the afternoon sports.
	     "At 2 p.m., the Saints were called to order by P. S. Larson.  All the audience rose and sang,
        'Oh ye Mountains High,' prayer by Elder John Godfrey, Sen.  Step dance by Sisters Jardine, Costley,
 	Shumway and Dahley; in fact the ladies dance fine.
	     "Next came a lecture in Chinese language, by Mr. John Thompson, and was interpreted by 
	R. Neish, which made great fun.
	      "Bishop Jardine did enjoy the fun and little did he think who was next, when  the bell rang and
 	Bishop Jardine was called out for a step dance.  He gave a sigh and looked up at the ceiling and
 	then commenced to dance.  Well I must say that our Bishop is getting into years, but he will be a
 	step dancer when he is 91 years old.  Next came a recitation by Sister Sarah Battars; a song by
 	Sister Godfrey; then came a dance in the evening.  That day will never be forgotten.
	    "On the evening of March 23, our dramatic company played 'Little Ruby' in three acts, for the
 	benefit of our Sunday School.  Mr. Alfred Clark, Agnes Shumway, Annie Jenson, James Clark,
 	Luvettie Shumway, T. Godfrey, E. Melenburg, Matilda Atkinson, with W. Jardine, as the Yankee,
 	all took the leading characters.
	     "On the evening of March 26, the Newton dramatic company played us a visit and played 'Ten
 	Nights in the Bar Room,' with Alfred Goodsell, Joe Morgan, W. Rigby, Mrs. Hammond, Lue
 	Hardy, Frank Slaid, Miss Bessie Griffin, Mary Morgan, Miss B. Leddingham, Mrs. Morgan, Miss
 	Hanson, Mrs. Switchel.  Hanson's band played some fine music.  I must say that Joe Morgan never
 	took a part better; he was heart and soul in the play, while Simeon Slaid got fat on poverty;
 	Sampel was always present when help was needed. Frank Slaid is good anywhere and good for
 	mixing up the stuff.  Mr. Green and Hammond played their cards well, and Mrs. Morgan and
 	daughter did fine and brought the tears on many  a face.  Mrs. Slaid gave good council and needed
 	no prompting.  Mrs. Switchel and the Corn doctor are good.  The farce made everybody happy,
 	and we say again to the  gentlemen and ladies come again.                         SANKO."

	  "EDITOR THE JOURNAL:--Last Saturday morning early the teams loaded with out brass band
	and ball players and lovers of sports, started for the north.  The roads were rough, but they fairly 	sailed over the mountain, each gent with his arm around his better half for fear she would get spilt 	out, as the roads were quite sidling.  We arrived at our destination at 12 o'clock sharp and the kind 	people of Weston invited all to take dinner with them and we did.  At 2 o'clock both sides were 	ready for the battle with General H. Rose taking charge of the Weston soldiers and General 	Samuel Thompson and Colonel Wm. Jardine taking charge of the Clarkston troops.  The first shots 	were fired by the Weston boys and they made one run.
	      "Clarkston then took the bat and the powder being wet made poor headway and was white- 	washed.  I stood by and watched the game, and the good kind feelings that has existed for many 	years still exists.  They played nine innings with J. Rose, Umpire, who showed no favors on either 	side and he is a man of good judgment.
	      "There was some poor playing done on both sides and Weston has some fine baters [sic].
	The Clarkston boys would of done better had their men been placed in the field a little different.
	     "Mr. Peter Maughan hurt his foot while running.  John Maughan and Frank Griffiths both
	fell very hard while running to third base and one gentleman tried hard to break the roof of the 	meeting house, and some of the boys lost their grip and let the clubs fly and scattered the 	spectators, and at 4 o'clock the game ended, Weston leading four tallies.
	     "Then Mr. H. Rose gave notice that there would be a dance in the evening and he would not 	allow one gentleman or lady to leave until after the dance.
	     "The Clarkston brass band then played some fine music, and then the Weston boys went and 	got their instruments and both bands played together.
	     "On Saturday June the 4th the Weston boys will come over to Clarkston to have a friendly 	game of ball and a visit.
	      "Well, we took in the dance and all came home satisfied.

	   "EDITON JOURNAL:--On Thursday evening about four o'clock, brother Samuel Stewart
	returned from the Snake river country where he had been on a ten days visit.  When he reached 	home it was storming hard, and as Mrs. Steward was up in town, he went out upon the north porch 	to wait for her.  While he was standing there the lightning struck the house tearing the whole south 	east corner completely out.
	     "It knocked brother Stewart down where he lay unconscious until his wife's return.  He was 	lying upon his face and it was thought that he was dead as he remained unconscious for two hours.  	Brother Stewart was badly burned across the bowels and is not sick in bed as a result of the shock.
	     "Little Alice Dahle was at Stewart's having gone there on an errand, and was in the room with 	three of the Stewart children.  She stood before a big looking glass when the lightening struck, and 	the glass was slivered in ten thousand pieces driving the child's face and body full of the 	fragments.  Great gashes were cut in her head and arms by the larger pieces, while the finer dust 	literally filled her skin.  She ran about crying and saying she was blind, while the blood was 	pouring from her many wounds.  She was placed in bed at last under the care of her mother and 	kind neighbors.
	    "The injured ones have the sympathy of all the Saints who pray that the little girl may not loose 	her eyesight.  Bishop Jardine, counselor Heggei [sic - Heggie] and others are looking after them 	with all care possible.
	     "Brother stewart [sic] told me this evening that on his return from Snake River, the nearer 	home he got the worse he felt, and that he could not remain in the house is why he went upon the 	porch.  If he had laid down upon the lounge as he was inclined to do, he would certainly have been 	killed as the furniture was all demolished.
	    "Some valuable papers in Brother Stewart's inside pocket were badly scorched and his clothes 	were considerable burned.

	      "A serious accident occurred at Clarkston on Thursday afternoon last, but no authentic
	information could be obtained until Monday morning.  The residence of Charles Stewart was
	struck by lightning, and one end of his house entirely destroyed.  The electric fluid struck the 	chimney first, and from there passed down the end of the house.  Stewart was standing outside 	under a little portico but the shock was sufficient to entirely deprive him of consciousness for 	some time.  Mrs. Stewart found him lying where he had fallen when she returned from a visit, and 	for some time thought him dead.  With the exception of feeling sore Stewart has fully recovered.  	A little girl named Alice Dahle had come on an errand to Stewart's house a short time before the 	storm, and was standing near one of the windows when the lightning shattered the window, the 	glass flying as if shot from a gun.  Doctor Ormsby states that there were not less than two hundred 	wounds or cuts on her body, some of the scalp wounds being from an inch and a half to three 	inches in length.  A piece of glass penetrated one of the eyelids and destroyed the sight.  The 	doctor will have to remove the injured member.  The studding and lumber on the end of the 	building were literally twisted into shreds.  The damage will reach $600."

This was done but it seems there was a misunderstanding on the part of many of the people.

		"Annual Report of the Inspector of Bees, Cache County.
	    "Logan, December, 7. -- Notwithstanding the extremely discouraging season which the
	bee-keepers have experience, there are very few who feel to condemn and accuse their little
	laborers of laziness.  But more, like kind, forgiving parents, they sympathize with the
	bees, not having the opportunity of gathering the nectar, which they so much desire.
	    "As the flowers have not produced the nectar in large quantities as they did season
	previous, it will be necessary that the apiarists examine their new colonies in early
	spring, lest their stories of honey should be exhausted.
	    "As there has never before been given, an inspector's report of Cache County, the 
	question is often asked me.  'How many bees are there in Cache Valley?'  That question
	I could not answer, but the following will show the number of colonies in Cache County
	last spring, before swarming commenced, and the loss encountered in wintering.

 	partook of the various courses in their turn.  It was a good dinner and suited the epicurean taste of
 	the eaters.  But when Sanko drained a bowl at the finish and remarked that it was 'the weakest

	Mr. Bell's place.
	    "Our young folk's took in the dance in the evening and 'came home with the girls in the
 	morning.'
	    "The first innings the Westons did fine, until Captain Sam. Thompson sent the balls a little too
 	swift and out went three.  The Clarkston boys then walked in determined to put in their best licks
 	and see what their opponents was made of.  So you see, Mr. Editor, there was sport for the
 	spectators.  The day was cold and the wind blew some; but the game went on.  The game was
 	good all the way through.  It was nip and tuck till the ninth inning.  A telegram came that the game
 	was ended and Clarkston four ahead.  I tried not to let on, but the four tallies for our jolly boys,
 	paid me big for riding twenty miles on a windy day.  The Weston boys come over on the 27th inst.
