THE MORMON SAINTS.
All Quiet in the New Jerusalem.
SALT LAKE, October 6.—The warrant for the arrest of George Q. Cannon, editor of the Deserat Nems, one of the apostles and chief aspirants for the succession to Brigham Young, was placed in the hands of the United States Marshal, but has not yet been served, probably because Cannon was engaged at the confer-ence. The charge is for lewdly and laciviously cohabiting with different women. He will doubtless be taken before Judge McKeon on Monday. It is expected that the defense to this is as to the charge against Brigham Young and Mayor Wells, will be that these extra women are the wives of defendants, whereupon the charge of bigamy will be presented and proven under Congressional law."
There was nothing remarkable in the confer-ence this morning. The addresses were mod-erate. Everybody is anticipating a speech from Brigham to-morrow. He will preach if will enough.
THE CALM BEFORE THE STORM.
Everything politically and ecclesiastically is quiet. The people ridicule the idea of disturb-ances or an outbreak. It is as quiet here as in New York or San Francisco, and perhaps safer.
A CANNON CAPTURED. SALT LAKE, October 7—4:30 P.M.--George Q. Cannon, editor and apostle, and Henry W. Lawrence, of the firm of Kimball & Lawrence, an ascending Mormon, or Geddite, and a prom-inent merchant, have both just been arrested by United States Marshal Patrick, and held for their appearance at this term of the court. The charge in both cases is lassivious cohabitation.
TRIAL OF A SAINT.
Thomas Hawkins, a man arraigned to-day, before Judge McKean on the indictment for adultery, growing out of poligamy. The charge having been made by his first wife. He pleaded not guilty and the United States attorney gave notice that he would be ready for trial on Mon-day.
The vehement and incendiary talk in the tab-ernacle this afternoon was done principally by McKenzie, one of Brighams secretaries.
