Territorial Election—The Young Di-vorce Suit—Welcome Rain—Person-al.
SALT LAKE, Aug. 4.—The Territorial election to-day passed off quietly. The Mormon ticket was unanimously chosen, the Gentiles not par-ticipating, the usual number of women and children, mostly aliens, voting.
Messrs. Smith, Jifford, and Hagan, lawyers, have not given up Mrs. Ann Eliza Young's di-vorce suit, as represented. Brigham Young's effort at compromise was not successful. The case comes up before Judge Emerson to-mor-row. Great interest is manifested in the result.
The first copious rain in three months fell to-day.
Gen. Sickels, of the Union Pacific Railroad, left for the East this morning.
NEW YORK, Aug. 4.—The Sun to-morrow will publish the following:
SALT LAKE CITY, Aug. 4.—Judge Hogan, of Ann Eliza Young's counsel, authorizes the Sun to deny the report that they have with-drawn from the divorce suit. The case is, however, much mixed up. Through the influence of Ann Eliza's father, Mrs. Young has compromised with the Prophet for $5,000 down, and $10,000 more within ninety days. Gen. Maxwell, her next friend, and her lawyers, who are made parties to the suit, refuse to accept her compromise, and the case will go on to-mor-row. Brigham Young's counsel made an attempt to quash the proceedings to-day on technical grounds, but failed. It is asserted that Mrs. Young's first husband is still alive, and that she never was divorced from him.
