135 years ago today - Feb 15, 1886 (Monday)

In the Third District Court, Samuel F. Ball, and James O. Poulson, charged with u.c. [Unlawful Cohabitation, I.E. living with a polygamous wife], testified in their own cases, and were each adjudged guilty by the jury. Two other indictments against each of them were continued for the term. After trial, in which Eliza Shafer was forced to testify, the jury returned a verdict of guilty against John W. Snell. Robert Morris was sentenced by Judge Zane to six months' imprisonment and $150 fine, and taken to the Penitentiary. Martha T. Cannon, wife of Pres. Geo. Q. Cannon, was insulted in court.
