JUDGE HAWLEY AFTER MORMON JUDICIAL OFFI-CERS.
SALT LAKE CITY, September 25.—Judge Hawley, of the Supreme Court, has caused to be issued from the Second judicial district a writ of prohibition against the Mormon Bishop, J. Reinick, probate judge of Bravura county, restraining him from taking or exercising either chancery or common law jurisdiction, but confining him to simple probate business.
Disregarding the decision of the Supreme Court, Brigham Young had directed his bishops, who are the probate judges, to continue chancery or common jurisdiction.
The argument of Judge Hawley, in issuing this writ, like all of his opinions, was most exhaustive and able. After its delivery it is said several Mormons in person thanked him for it.
SALT LAKE, September 25.—Brigham Young returned to this city yesterday. The Mormons indignantly deny that he has sought to evade the proceedings of the court or grand jury. They say he will obey the summons, or submit even to the warrant of arrest, but he will not yield to imprisonment.
