Kaysville Kinks#36 Hyrum Stewart
-- Spring cleaning in Kaysville is a raging epidemic and we poor mortals of the male persuasion are enduring the consequential torture.
-- P.J. Ahern, a transient who won notoriety by borrowing a horse from William Wallace of Kaysville without the formality of getting the owner's consent, and who languished in the county jail as a guest for several months, was acquitted of the charge of horse stealing by a jury yesterday. The truth is the fellow was in a maudlin state of intoxication bordering on insanity when he committed the deed.
-- R. W. Barnes has just completed the construction of a fish pond on his premises. He has stocked it with about 100 embryonic species of the finny tribe of carp variety.
-- The city council recently appointed R.W. Barnes as keeper of the municipal wampum, in place of George T. Hyde who's resignation as city treasurer took effect May 1st.
-- Paul Thomassen has resumed his position as our Union Pacific agent in place of C. H. Cody who goes to Spanish Fork.
-- A call was made for a citizens Indignation Meeting. The objective is to protest against the road way across the mill dam on 8th street. Hyrum Stewart is the aggressor. He is obstructing the roadway with an obnoxious barbed wire fence. He says he will not remove it, and it will remain a permanent structure.
