During Dr. J. King Robinson's lawsuit against Salt Lake City, a mob of twenty to thirty men destroy his "bowling-saloon" in the city. Police chief Andrew Burt and two policemen are identified as members of the mob, and Robinson tells Mayor Daniel H. Wells on 20 Oct. that he will sue the city for damages. He is ejected from the mayor's office.
