Her Nlbbs and Her Daughter and the Keyhole—The Women Carry the Day and the Defendant Was Convicted.
A divorce suit, an unprepared breakfast and a mother-in-law with her eye perpetually glued to the keyhole, are the excuses Mr. Tony Bogalsky, the livery stable proprietor of Broadway, gives for his matrimonial troubles. Mr. Bogalsky appeared before Justice Seaman yesterday in answer to a complaint sworn to by Belle Bogalsky, hia wife, who alleges that on the11th day of June her husband seized her by the throat and choked her. Mrs. Bogalsky stated that some time ago she instituted proceedings for divorce, which she afterwards withdrew on her husband promising to abstain from illtreatlng her. Since then he has perpetually been threatening and abusing her. On the day of the assault she was in the dining room holding her baby when her husband came up and began using bad language about the breakfast. He then took her by the throat and nearly choked her, she dropped the baby, and he let her go. Mrs. Nibbs, mother of the complainant corroborated hsr daughter's statement. The defendant then went upon the stand and denied the allegation. He stated that he placed a warning hand upon her shoulder, and was about to tell her not to use unladylike language when she screamed and her mother came in. The witness then stated that his mother-in-law was the cause of the whole trouble, she was perpetually listening at the keyhole. The statement was energetically denied by Mrs. Nibbs and her daughter. Justice Seaman found the defendant guilty of battery and he was ordered to appear for sentence this morning.

A Row of Shed Stalls Consumed With But Little Loss.
Night Watchman Walter Houston at 9:30 last evening discovered that the rear portion of the Niagara livery stable at Nos. 303 and 305 East Third street was afire. He turned in an alarm as quickly as possible from the corner of Third and Main streets, but before the engines arrived the flames had gained considerable headway.
The premises at the number given are owned by M. Saunders and occupied by T. O. H. Bogalsky as a livery, feed and sale barn. The main building in front was not touched, but the flames consumed a row of shed stalls in the back yard, ln these stalls were some eighteen horses, but they were all gotten out in safety, and only a little hay was consumed.
It Is stated that the blaze originated In the extreme rear of the premises next door on the east, No. 307. run as the Enterprise harness shop by C. H. Strong. Mr. Strong had stored there about four tons of hay, and it is supposed that tramps sleeping in it carelessly dropped a lighted match or burning tobacco. The fire spread to the west and south with great rapidity, but was confined to the shed stalls.
There will be a loss of 134 to Mr. Strong and perhaps $250 on the sheds burned, all

When this work is completed the reports will be turned over to Colonel Berry, who will present them to Captain Pratt, the mustering out officer. Should this task be completed next week, the Seventh will be mustered out by Nov. 28th. A flag pole seventy five feet high has been presented to the regiment by Major J.

From The Salt Lake tribune., October 06, 1904:
Visitor Describes Salt Lake as It Ap-peared to Him in 1880.
After an absence of more than twenty-four years, T. O. H. Bogalsky of Los Angeles, Cal., returned to Salt Lake last night, and is loud In his praises of the city. "I left here when there were no paved streets and no electric cars" said Mr. Bogalsky. "I lived here from 1878 until July, 1880, when I left and went to Mexico. From there I went to Arizona, and in 1889 I went to Los Angeles. In 1897 I sold out and went to the Philippines, "When I was here there was a street car line, with one street car, drawn by a team of mules and driven by a man named Dunn. This ran out to Fort Douglas. There was a stone fence around President Taylor's house, and cows were pastured In the streets. The Clift House was at the edge of town, and the business streets of the town were Main and South Temple. There were very few houses beyond Main streeet at that time. "Gen. Smith was in command at Fort Douglas, and had the Fourteenth regiment under him. "From what I have seen of your city now I think It Is the most wonderful city in the world. I have visited many, but the broad, well-paved streets and the method of placing the trolley poles in the middle of the streets should commend itself to every one."
