The greater part of the last two days
has been occupied by the jury , with
.Judge llayward presiding , in tlio trial of
tlio case of llichard Sweeney against the
Lincoln Street Railway conmany. The
case is brought on thupartof the plaintifl
to recover $10,000 from the railroad corn-
puny for damages. The attorneys in the
ca o have bee'n giving it close attention
and the question of negligence on the
part of railway corporations of all kinds
has been gone over in detail. The facts
in the case , as recited in the petition of
the plaint ! ! ) ' , are thai on the 8th of No
vember , \WK \ > , Sweeney was ruling on the
pint form of a slreut car on Iho Lincoln
street railway line and that in driving
over a switch too much speed , was ngcii
by the driver so much , in fact , that
Sweohoy was thrown oil' the car , ono
wheel running over his lied io that for
several months he was confined to his
bed tinder the care of n doctor , After
ward he was obliged logo on crutches tip
to March , ISfcO , und up to Juno of that
year was able to do onlv partial work nt
a barber chair. The defense recites that
Sweeney Millerod from his own careless
ness in ridlti" on the nlulform instead of
in the car andwas , guilty of contributory
negligence ,

Ono of Herrmann's Tricks.
\ \ abhington Post : Ono story ho re
peats is worth repeating. Ho was sum
mering at u foreign watering place ,
and was constantly besieged by the
Countess Somebody to perform some of
his tricks. lie pleaded that he was on
his vacation and that he desired to rest.
Finally she cornered him in a pavilion
overlooking the sea , and in the presence
of a lai'go company entreated him to
show them what he could do. "You
have a beautiful necklace , " ho said at
last ; "plcaso let mo have it. " The coun
ters complied and Herrmann immed
iately throw tlio costly chain of gems into
the ocean. "How dare you do that ? "
demanded the countess , angrily.
Without replying , Herrmann reached
forward and brought fourth a large
bouquet from the inside of the gentle
man s coat. Handing it to thn countess
bo bade tier open it. "She did so , " says
Herrman , laughingly telling the story ,
"and right in tlio bouquet she found her
necklace. Now that was real nico.wasn'l'
it ? "

( luring liis .sojourn in W.yoming as United
States marshal and frankly it appears to
bo even
WOKM : IHAN ins NP.IIKASICA. itncoun ,
although greatly similar in political
mot hods. In 1808 Wyoming WHS
created into a territory , and
among the officials appointed by
President Johnson was Church Howe ,
who resided in Massachusetts. Almost
immediately upon his arrival at Ciu-y-
iMine , which was then sis it is now , the
capital of tlio territory , llowo commenced
a career which for violence of ail decency
and regard for honest purpose appears
to have no equal in the history of the ter
Within a few months after his arrival
ho mixed with the rougher clement of
territory ami was known as one of Hie
boy.s. At the time Cheyenne boingmnv
was naturally rough , and variety shows
and oilier dives to catoli the nionny of
ignorant ami foolish men were numer
ous in tlio city. Howe WIIB a constant ,
frequenter of these , and many old-timers
remember him as a patron ot MolJaniols'
famous hurdy-gurdy concern , as he made
himselt more than ordinarily conspic
uous by having the female attaches of
the place gathered around him and
seated on his lap.
Shortly after llowo arrived in Wyoming
ho appears to have perfected a political
deal with the then management of the
Union 1'acilic railroad , for when the
11mo came to hold a convention to nom
inal a doiegato in congress ho
called a meeting at 'Lnraniio
City , and with Charles W. Meade ,
and a man named Hammond , Mipurln-
tondcntb of Jho Union Pacific , assured
prominent republicans that if they would
nominate llowo for congress , they would
insure the support of their road tor him.
The offer was not accepted , and another
gentleman was put up , to whom Howe
gave only a negative support. Again , in
1870 , llowo was a candidate for tlio ollicc ,
but was again defeated by a gonUoman
named W. K. Jones , one of the territorial
and worked for Jones' defeat. In 1873
Howe , after again failing to get the re
publican nomination , went to the demo
crats Mid endeavored to induce them to
vote for him. Upon his failure to gain
the support of either parly ho organ-
i/.cd iu 1872 what was known
as the "people's movement , " which
had for Its chief object tlio overthrow of
the republican party in the territory and
to servo Howe's own personal ambition.
He owned a paper at South Pass and its
utterances , all inspired by llowo him
self , were very bitter against the party
and President Grant ; particularly against
the latter wore many vile and libelous
article which , had they appeared in the
cast at that time oven , much less the
prn&ont , would have undoubtedly insured
Howe's either being assassinated or
driven irora the community , decorated
with a coat of tar and feathers. Asso
ciated with llowo in the "people's move
ment" were II. J. Rogers , a broken-down
banker at Choyenno. and J. W. Cook , a
nondescript , each of whom were to bo
rewarded by Howe with political prefer
ment in the event of his success. Howe
I drtiniuicd the matter up while traveling
about the territory ut the expense of the
goVermontand , iinnUy , in Juno , 1872 ,
issued an
In his paper at South Pass , and ho after-
lerwards read the fiunio document at the
"convention" held by the "people's
movement at" LaramioICity a few days
later on. The indictment consisted of a
lot of false charges against Grunt and Ills
administration ; upon the party generally
which ho said had become so corrupt ( ? )
that bo ( llowo ) could no longer stay in
it. Tlio convention did not prove u suc
cess and Howe , greatly enraged , wont
over to the democratic party and tried
to obtain its nomination for dcle&rato to
congress , The democrats refused to take
him up , and corrupt and otlicions
to the lust ho interfered in its
deliberations , and through the agenoj of
money and the influence of the Union
Pacific bought the vote of a member of
the convention for W. H. Steele , who
thereby obtained thn nomination bv one
majority. The allidavit of M. P. Hanni-
fm , u well known business
man of Cheyenne at this
time , who was a member of the conven
tion In question , gives Unlit upon the
matter and shows that he was also ap
preached by one of Howe's missionaries ,
a man named Mr. Laughlm , with a
bribe which was refused by Hannifin and
taken up the next day by btlllman , whoso
votn broke tlio tie which bad existed for
throe days prior to that time between
Luke Mnrrin and W. It. Htcelo and gave
the nomination to the latter. During the
canvass which ensued Howe used
every moans to secure
Stcelo's election over a republican
and it was through his efforts that the
republican nominee , Uou. W. W. Cor-
lutt , now a leading resident of the tern-
tofy nmi an ox-delegate to congress , was
defeated for the ollice at tlint time. In
every way ho worked /or the defeat of
the republican ticket , Ho efforts and
organisation of the "people's movement"
attracted the attention of the Wyoming
Tribune , the leading republican paper
of the territory , which upon July n. 1873 ,
devoted the following artiola to Church
Havre and his associates :

mea who , In the convention , favored Mr.

cluded bo could do more harm by feigning

of the South Pass News , a paper which ho
owned , to John Wauless , the democraticcan-
tlldnto , forSiaO , and this very paper , to-day ,
Is published at Lartuuie City , as the
Independent , a nomlcsciipt bush
whacking journal , devoted to nothing
bat the abnso of the republican party from
President Grant down ana to the support of
the ex-marshal. We have devoted this much
of our sjiaco to the ex-marshal , because ho is
held up us the lender of this now party In
the territory which was born ot his disap
pointment and deteat and the plutfoim of
which is published to the people In the silly
twuddlo of the bill of Indictment which was
read nt Ijnramio tlio other evening. With
snclia leader and such a platform what may
not those distinguished citi/.ens expect to ac
complish with Howe In congress , Cook as
chief justice and itogers as governor. Then ,
Indeed , will our territory have reached Its
political mlllenium. "
Having boon such a disturbing factor
in the party since I in advent into tlio ter
ritory , and for other and ollicial reasons
ho was removed by tlio president in the
early part of 187s , ami u gentleman
named Mil toy , a valiant and useful ofll-
cor in the union army , was appointed
from Indiana to fill Howe's ulaco. The
artful dodger learned of Milroy's ap
pointment and took good care to'bo on
band when the ( 'eneral arrived Meeting
him upon the arrival of the first train
Howe falsely told the general that lie
himself had been forced to resign the
oflico because ho eould not make any
thing out of it , and as a friend would ad.
vise him nottotakoit. The general , a. sim
ple minded old gentleman , thoroughly
unaware of Howe's real character ,
allowed himself to bo fooled nnd left on
the next train back to his homo. The
truth was the olliee was the most lucra
tive ono ; honestly conducted , and much
nioro so under Howe's rule if tlio stories
of tlio bcStuQd most responsible residents
of the territory Bpoijk the truth , and they ,
undoubtedly do , aa will lipPl'ar ' further
on. At the time of Howo'a cicutftlon
from the republican partv Dr. GeorgoW ,
Corey , the leading physician of the territory -
tory , nnd at present an honorable and
prominent citizen of Cheyenne , was
chairman of the territorial republican
committee and also chairman of this
liitraimo county contra ) committee. I
saw this gentleman , wfco < being an ardent

In 1803 a railroad contractor mimed
John Kelly foully murdered a young
man named Charles Maxwell , nt Ihe
town of Dennett , in Wyoming. He es
caped at the timi' , but was afterwards
captured at Hod Oak , Iowa , by N. K.
Moswell , sheriff ot Albany county , Wy
oming , and brought back to the te/ritory
lor trial. Ho was tried at llawlins , the
case having boon taken out of the terri
torial ollicera' hands and given , through
the Influence of money , to the Unitetl
Stales officials to try. Howe as marshal
.summoned the jury which tried the case ,
ami according to Herman Ulallke , u
prominent citizen of Wyoming and at
present living in Cheyenne , received
$8,000 for his services in securing
a jury that would acquit Kelly. Kelly
was itcqiiitlcd , although Ihe crime was
unprovoked and cold blooded. It was
charged at the time that it was largely
through Howe's inllnenco that Kelly secured -
cured his acquittal. Mr. Boswell , as
staled , at the time was sheriff of Albany
county und had gone to expense in pot
ting Kelly bnck to Wyoming to answer
for his crime. Ho felt that a great In
justice had Leon done the people of the
territory by this travesty on justice. Ho
was familiar witli Howe's character in
former transactions and know porlectly
well that ho would scruple ot nothing to
gain his ends. At a convention which
Howe had endeavored to get the nomi
nation at ho had been approached by
Howe , wlio endeavored to bribe him. As
Mr. Boswell is an honest man it made
him very angry to bo thus approached
and he spurned the oiler. Mr. Moswell
was seen und ho expressed perfect wil
lingness to swear to what he said con
cerning Howe und his allidavit is hero
given :
Territory of Wyoming , county ot Laramle.
N. K. Uoswell , being duly hvroin , deposes
and says that bo now Is nnd ever since IMS
has been a leshlont of Wyoming territory ;
that he was acquainted with ono Church
llowo during the years from 1608 to 1873 ;
that In the year 1H7J said afliant attended a
lopiihllcm ten I tot liil convention ; that dur-
Inc suid convention the afliant met said
Chinch liowe when the following convoca
tion , In substance ensued : llowo said ,
"Uoswoll joti are n d d fool to work for
Jonesas ho has no money ; hero , rake tills , "
at the Mime time Imndlim out a roll or money
which ho olTeied to afliant , but which was
refused. Afliant further states that llowo
was u candidate at said convention lor dele
gate to congress and that the money was
offered us n bilbo ; atliaiit further states that
thn mild Howe used many other corrupt
menns to secure snid nomination ; that ono
( icorgn Kills , a delegate to Bald convention
from U In tali county declared to afliant that
at Hurt ji'Sie said Howe offered him ( Kills )
$3 000 , for tUe vote * ot the two delegates
fiom said Ulntah conni > ' .
Alllant further elates that 111 ISCS ono John
Kelley shot and killed ono Charles plaxwi'll
at tliu town of Ucnton in said tetrllory ; that
subsequently In the year 1670 wild niliunt
pursued and captured , wlillo acting as u
deputy under said Church Ilnwe , who at the
time was United Stales imushnt of said ter
ritory , the bald John Kelly at Kcd Oak , la. ,
and brou lit him back to Liiiumlo City lor
trial tor the killing of said Maxwell ; thai
buld trial occurred at Uawlins in said terri
tory , and thut although bald Kelly was
guilty of a foul minder , ho wits acquitted and
set tree : that there were rumors af tlio time
that undue and Illegal means were used for
the acquittal of bald Kelly and tlmtsald
Howe was concerned therein. Said Alllant
fuitlier Btates that ( luring bald period he was

Upon the authority of a former chief
jiistloo of the territory , a mun whoso
record through u long residence in thin
city has made his character well known
to be far above reproach , tells me that
Howe wus certainly not u good man.
Some time after his appointment a man ,
whoso muna ho forgot , shipped eighteen
head of horses to Cheyenne from Nevada
and hold them for salo. Church Howe ar-
rcbted the mun Und. taking him beforoitn
ignorant justice of tlio peace at Cheyenne ,
named William Rollins , had the horse
man bound over for trial upon no real
ground whatever. Through tliu conni
vance of these corrupt men the
Nevada man lost till his horses
which wore sold and the proceeds appro
priated by the ofh'ciuls. There was no
proof hut what the mun honestly owned
the horses nnd it wus afterwards proved
that they jypro his. This arrest and pros-
ecutipn wus mntit > ) y Howe and it was al-
ways supposed that he got most of the
money resulting from the .sale of the
Among Howe's deputies was a notor
ious three card monte man named Jack
McDonald , a friend and pal of the well
known Canada Hill A favorite scheme
of this fellow's , was to go about ( 'hoy-
onno and take up horses and arrest their
owners on frivolous charges. He always
picked out ignorant ner.sons and then
terrorize him into either paying money
or uiving up ; the horses. A favorite
method of action was lo pick out a horse
belonging to some herder who had come
to town to see the sights. McDonald
would go up to the horse , and mixing up
a liltlo dirt and water , mark U. S. upon
tlio horse's shoulder. He would then go
into the saloon where thn half-drunken
owner was drinking and him why ho
had stolen a government , horse. Upon
the owner's protest McDonald would lead
him out and show him the mark put on
by himself. The poor drunken herder
half .scared to death would bo arrested
and taken to Fort D. A. Hussell , near
Chovonne , and loeked up. In n day or
two lie would be permitted to go minus
his horse , which was
' . ' "COSTS11

created bv Huwo and his deputy Mc
Donald. These are-btit a few instances
of Howe's utter depravity. In 187iibout ( :
a year after his first removal ho was
summarily bounced from the ollice. The
department of jubilee at Washington
dispatched a man out to the
territoiy to look over Howe's
all airs and tlioy woio found in
bad shape , llowe'was absent from the
territory at the time , without leaye , and ,
although the government , thoroughly
frightened by a long article published
in the Cincinnati Gazette at tlio time
charging Howe with
of government funds , he eould not bo
found. The next heard of him was in
Nebraska , where he has since resided.
The statement made by Mr. Hannifin is
as follows ;
Wyomlnir Teriltory , l-aramlu county , ss :
.Martin 1' . llaiinilin , uoiim duly sworn ,
deposes and says that ho Is chief of tlio lite
( lepnitmenl of the city of Ch > enne , in the
enmity and territory above nnmeil ; that ever
over since 1807 ho has boon and ntill is a resi
dent and citizen of the said city of Cheyenne ;
that ho was personally acquainted with
Church llowo , now a resident of Nemuha
county , In the state of Nebraska , between
IBO'J and 1673 , when the said Howe was
United States maislial in nud for the sahl
territory , and that during the said period of
time nlnant was familiar with the political
career of the said llowo In said territory.
Affiant further s.iys that immediately nflcr
his coming heio. tlio said Howe wnnt actively
Into politics , urging hliself upon the re
publican party with great persistence for the
highest o111ccs In the territory , but falling of
pro'iioliou in that paity us rapidly as ho
wished ho boiran to curry favor with the
democrats , that In 1R72 ho ( Jiowo ) was ores-
out at a domocrn 1 convention held Jn
Laramie city lo nominate a dolcgate lo repre
sent the territoiy in and that allmnt
wns ono of the delegates of the s.ilrt conven
tion , and wnn porsunnlly present during Its
deliberationAlllant further says that said
Howe wnsm attendance upon the sahl con *
volition throughout its OUUIH session which
continued for thiee days , and that U wai the
general unilerHtnnillng and talk among tlio
delegates that said Howe wanted the con
vention to honor him with the nomination.
The light for the nomination Dually nar-
rnwrd down between Luke JIuirlu and W.
II. Steele , each of whom for a lingo number
ot ballots iccelved nn equal number of votes
thus making the matter n tie. Alllant fuithor
says that S500 nnd a pass over the Union
Pacific railroad was offnrca to him by Jiirtua
McLaughlin If he would vote for Steele , bat
affiant declined tlio offer and continued to
support Mun in to the last. The next day the
same offer was made to ono Judge Stillman
of Swrotwfttor county , a delegate In the said
coiiTentlnn , If lie would vote forSteeio. Still-
man accepted the bribe , cast Ids vote acconl-
inglyanil Steele was nominated. Howe wan
known to have been woiklmr In the Interest
of Steele , after It was ascertained that ho
himself had no show , and It was rumored ,
generally understood , and believed thut Ho wo
hnnilleiland manipulated the boodle which
corrupted Kllllman ,
Alllant further says that In 1873 Howe
joined forces with two other individuals and
assisted In on.'uni lng what was known as
"the People's Movement" whoso avowed pur
pose was to oppose and overthrow the re
publican party of the territory. A ( limit
further says whllo heio the imputation of
llowo both as a private cltl/en nnd a public
olllcer was ot an unsavory character ami It
was a matter of much talk and geneinl no-
torleiy , that In Ids ofllce ns United States
Mnrstihl. ho was In the habit ol packing
Jmlw , and receiving pay therefor.
