THE MORMON SAINTS—THEIR TRIALS AND TRIBU-LATIONS.
SALT LAKE, October 31st.—H. S. Eldridge, of the Bank of Deseret, and William Jennings, of Zion's Co-operative Institution, were reserved as sureties on the bail bond of Mayor Daniel Wells. The motion for the bail of Stout and Kimball is still under consideration of the court. The case of Clayton vs. Clayton, be-ing the suit of a polygamist, wife of William Clayton, Territorial Auditor, for divorce and alimony, is on docket for to-morrow. The point at present raised is the demurrer to the jurisdiction of the United States Court, the defense claiming that matters of this nature belong exclusively to the Probate Court. The plaintiff is Clayton's ninth wife, and a suit for divorce before the United States Court of course cannot be maintained. The testimony on the merits of the case, however, is expected to be decidedly curious, inasmuch as to admit that plaintiff is defendant's wife would leave him open to the charge of polygamy. The defend-ant's only hope, therefore, is to maintain the demurrer.
SALT LAKE, October 31st.—The Mormon Bishop, Aaron Johnson, arrested a short time since at Springville by the United States Marshal for murder, was released to-day by Judge Strickland, at Provo, on $10,000 bail.
