The Salt Lake Evening Democrat reports on March 13, 1886 that, "Messrs. R. Maeser and George hales, proprietors of the Utonian were arrested and placed under $1500 bonds on the charge of libel, it having accused deputies of stealing or attempting to steal valuables from some of the homes visited" (during an anti-polygamy crusade). The Manti Home Sentinel then reports the verdict on May 25th, "Packed jury business done effectual work in the Beaver Utonian libel case on Tuesday last, when they convicted manager Hales just after the editor, Maeser, had been acquitted by a different jury."
The Southern Utonian was succeeded by the Beaver Utonian and The Utonian. The Beaver City Press earlier titles were The Weekly Press and The Beaver Co. Weekly Press. All these are included in this collection.
The Utah Digital Newspapers Program would like to extend its most sincere thanks to the Church History Library of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints for the loan of their original newspapers for the creation of this collection.
