TRIAL OF DELEGATE CANNON FOR POLYG-AMY—THE ACCUSED DISCHARGED.
SALT LAKE CITY, April 2.—George Q. Can non, Congressional Delegate from Utah, was on trial to-day for polygamy. The defense was that he had contracted no polygamous marriage within two years preceding the indictment. The prosecu-tion said they did not expect to prove marriage within two years. The court held that it was the act of consummating the second, or other marriage subsequent to the first, which constituted the offense under the statute. The prosecution is therefore barred by the United States statute of limitations. The defendant was discharged.
