145 years ago today - Nov 13, 1878

Three unidentified men attack John C. Young, editor of the anti-Mormon Salt Lake Tribune, as he leaves its office near midnight and breaks his nose with "brass knuckles." On 12 Feb. 1878 Deseret News reported Counselor George Q. Cannon's statement about Young: "I consider the fellow without character, who deserves kicking, and who would not resent the insult if kicked."
