      10. Various newspaper articles found online at either Utah Digital Newspaper Collection or Chronicling America, accessed Dec. 2013. Apparently Charles Henry Hales had major criminal run-ins with the State of Utah in his youth:
      1897 Dec 12, "The Salt Lake Herald," p. 23: "Boys Discharged. Result of the Circleville Burglary Examinations. Circleville, Piute County, Utah Dec 9 – Martin Baler and Henry Hales, the boys who were arrested on the charge of attempted burglary, were examined by the justice court here today. The examination occupied the afternoon from 2 o'clock until 6, and resulted in the discharge of the accused. It seems very evident that they are guilty, but as Mr. Petersen could not say that he saw them inside the store, the justice deemed the evidence insufficient to convict."
      1898 Aug 4, "The Salt Lake Herald," p. 6: "Henry Hales Arrested on Suspicion, But Not Held. Released On a Technicality as to the Expiration of the Justice's Term of Office – Old Man Sudweek the Victim. Circleville, Aug. 1 – The hearing of Henry Hales before Justice Edwin King of Kingston abruptly ended today. The legal counselor of the defendant discovered that Mr. King's official term had just expired, and so successfully moved for a dismissal of the count and of the case. The result in the public mind is that of serious disappointment. The charge against Hales is of a grave nature – assault and robbery, committed upon an aged and lonely man whom he believed to be possessed of money. The old gentleman, Mr. James Sudweek, had for some time been extending the hospitality of his house to a couple of young men, when, on the evening of the 22nd, at rather late bedtime, Mr. Sudweek heard a knock. He got up and opened the door, believing the knock was made by his guests. When they had entered he lit a lamp and was surprised to find his supposed guests covered with masks and covering him with pistols, at the same time demanding money. Upon his refusal, one of them struck him with a pistol, but the old gentleman remained resolute and tried to reason with his assailants. He was again struck and commanded to obey. He sat down, and, looking up to one, said: "I know you, Henry Hales, and should think you would be to better business. The supposed Hales with oaths, denied the name and struck again. Mr. Sudweek then tried to snatch the mask off the other man, when he was again struck and commanded to give up his money. Seeing that his assailants were determined to conquer or kill, he surrendered. Nearly $25 was the extent of their booty. Mr. Sudweek had but recently sold some land, but it happened that he had loaned out all but the little which the boys took. It is believed that while the two young men were engaged, two others were keeping guard outside the premises. There are suspicions as to the identity of all four but thus far only Hales has been arrested, and it is believed that he will yet be prosecuted. It will possibly be remembered by some of the readers of The Herald that Henry Hales figured in an attempted burglary last fall, and was discharged on some technicality in the evidence."
      1898 Oct 18, "The Salt Lake Herald," p. 6: "Hales Arraigned For Robbery. ... A Robbery Case. In the case of the state of Utah vs. Henry Hales, the defendant was arraigned at 10 o'clock this morning and took the statutory time to plead. The defendant is accused of robbing James H. Sudweeks of Kingston on the 22d of July last of the sum of $24.50. On the night of the 22nd, two masked men appeared at the door of Sudweeks' and were by him admitted to the room where he slept, he thinking they were friends; when he lit his lamp and turned around he found himself facing two guns. When they went to his trunk he resisted, and was assaulted by the robbers, who obtained the money and fled."
      1898 Oct 23, "The Salt Lake Herald": "(Special to The Herald.) Junction, Piute County Oct. 21 ... The case of the state vs. Henry Hales, charged with robbery, was called, this being the time for the defendant to plead. A motion was made by defendant's counsel to set aside the information, for the reason that the committing magistrate was not qualified to act as such, having been appointed as justice of the peace by the commissioners of Piute county in June 1896, the term for which he was appointed having expired on Jan. 4, 1897. The motion was granted and defendant held until today at 3 p.m., when he will have a hearing before Judge McCarty, sitting as committing magistrate ..."
      1898 Dec 7, "The Salt Lake Herald": "Prosecutor was Willing to Let Henry Hales Go Without Trial, But the Court Was of Contrary Mind. (Special Correspondence.) Junction, Dec. 5, - Judge McCarty stopped over here today on his homeward journey from Kanab, where he has been holding a term of court, and held the preliminary hearing in the of this state vs. Henry Hales. After an examination of state and defendant's witnesses lasting from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., with only an hour's intervention, the defendant was held and placed under bonds for trial before a jury in the district court. The defendant is one of the young men accused of being implicated in the robbery of James H. Sudweeks, which occurred here on the night of the 22nd of July last, when two masked men entered his home, beat and bruised him and carried away $24.50 in money. His defense was an alibi, but it was not sufficiently established during all of the night in question to justify his discharge. His own statements of his whereabout from near 9 o'clock until 10 of the night in question were not corroborated, as to his whereabout the balance of the night they were.
      On taking up the case the judge was confronted with a peculiar state of affairs. As will, perhaps, be remembered, the young man had one preliminary hearing before Justice King of Kingston, which, on coming into the district court was ruled out as being void, King having acted as justice on appointment to fill a vacancy made in 1895, and having continued to so act, no justice of the peace for that precinct having ever been voted for at the succeeding election. A new preliminary examination was ordered and it was commenced on Oct. 21 last, before Judge McCarty. Owing to the absence of witnesses, a continuance was had till this date. This morning a letter was received by the judge from Prosecutor Page at Marysvale, moving to dismiss the case "owing to the fact that there has been an attempt, according to the best information obtainable, to intimidate him (main witness for the State), and thus prevent his testimony from being brought out. This did not suit the judge, he deeming this particular reason as being more of a reason for a vigorous investigation than for a dismissal of the case, and he proceeded with the hearing without the assistance of the prosecutor, interrogating the witnesses himself with the result as above stated, to all of which counsel for defendant of course duly excepted. During the examination some evidence of the intimidation referred to came out, the main witness being in attendance, notwithstanding the inability of the prosecutor and sheriff to locate him. The intimidators came in for a scoring from the court and the assurance that if their course continued a grand jury will investigate their cases and they be dealt with the full rigor of the law.
      The action of the prosecutor in thus backing down is generally unfavorably commented upon here today, and to judge from the tone of the court's remarks, may be the cause of citation to him to appear and show cause, to issued out of the district court. Should this course be taken of course Sheriff Stocks will be in the same boat with Prosecutor Page."
      1898 Dec 11, "The Salt Lake Herald," p. 7: "Burglars at Circleville. Two Junction Boys Arrested For the Offense. Circleville, Utah, Dec 8 – An attempt was made last night to burglarize the store of James E. Peterson. The robbers were just entering through a front window when Mr. Peterson made his appearance through the back door, and frightened them away. The burglars mounted their horses and rode away, but were pursued by Mr. Peterson and the constable, who finally located them at Junction.
      Mark Baler and Henry Hales both of Junction, are now under arrest, charged with being the guilty parties. Constable Nielsen thinks that he cannot have mistaken their identity."
      1898 Dec 15, "The Salt Lake Herald," p. 6: "Will Rollo Get His Pay? Court Reporter Who Has a Bill Disallowed by Piute County. (Special Correspondence.) Junction, Dec. 13 – The county commissioners were in session yesterday. They fixed the compensation of all registrars in the county at $10 each and judges of election at $2 for the first twelve hours and 20 cents per hour while canvassing the votes. At the preliminary examination of Henry Hales held here on the 5th, Judge McCarty ordered the evidence taken down in short-hand by reporter Rollo, and during the examination the court took occasion to criticize County Attorney Page for his failure to prosecute Hales. Yesterday reporter Rollo's bill for $8 was presented and Attorney Page asked that the same be disallowed, as Judge McCarty exceeded his jurisdiction when he employed the reporter without the consent of the public prosecutor, and now reporter Rollo will have to call on the court for this pay or go without. ..."
      1899 Apr 29. "Manti Messenger." Court Calendar. For the May term of the District Court commencing Monday, May 8th, 1899. Criminal Cases. State vs Henry Hales, 9th day, at 9 am.
      1899 May 19, "The Salt Lake Herald," p. 5: "Still a Mystery. (Special Correspondence.) Junction, May 16 - The defendant and witnesses in the case of the state vs Henry Hales, have returned from Manti, where the defendant had his trial and was acquitted. It will be remembered that the defendant was accused of robbing James Sudweeks of Kingston, this county, and took a change of venue to the seventh district court. Hales' acquittal leaves the case shrouded in mystery."
      1899 Jul 1, "The Utah County Democrat": "Some Hobos and Others. Precinct Justice King did some business Thursday. Frank Connors for assault with a deadly weapon, a revolver, on Geo. Cook was sent up for ninety days, the limit. Connors is a man who is strongly suspected of complicity in the Strong murder and is also confessedly guilty of several petty burglaries. Eight of "de gang," answering to the of Henry Hales, Reese Humphrey, Al Pratt, F. J. Gesselbrecht, Frank Baker, N. Jones, Wm. Sampson and Rudolph Barnholdt on charge of unlawfully riding on trains will "do" from ten to fifteen days each.
      The case against Frank Billings, the alleged rapest, was continued until next Monday."
      1899 July 10, "Deseret Evening News," p 7: "Wanted for Forgery. District Attorney J. F. Chidester of Garfield Co., and Sheriff James Stocks of Piute county, arrived in Provo today for the purpose of taken into custody Henry Hales, a young man of Panguitch, wanted for forgery. Hales was arrested by the officers of this country with a number of tramps during the general round-up, following the Strong murder. He was given ten days by Justice S. K. King for stealing a ride on the train, and his term expired on Friday last, and he was turned loose. The officers from the South were disappointed when they learned this, but it did not take the Provo officers long to ascertain Hale's whereabouts, as he was located at Eureka. Sheriff Stocks went to Eureka Sunday to arrest the alleged forger, and he will be taken back to Piute County where the crime was committed. Hales denies that he ever signed another man's name to any paper unlawfully."
      1899 Jul 13, "The Salt Lake Herald," p. 5: "Arrested Many Times. Henry Hales Taken In By Silver City Officer. (Special Correspondence.) Silver City, July 11 - Last evening officer Benjamin Cole arrested Henry Hales on advice received from Castle Valley alleging that Hales is wanted in that section, the charge being fornication. Young Hales says he is a victim of misfortune. According to his statement he had recently been a visit to Salt lake City, and returning home, which is near Junction in Piute county, he stopped over at Provo, unfortunately arriving the morning following the murder of Officer Strong. He was gathered in by the minions of the law and subjected to the most searching and rigid examination after which he was confined in jail for two weeks. Gaining his liberty he came to this locality hoping to procure employment, when an officer swooped down on him and again placed him durance vile. He vigorously protests his innocence – but unfortunately for young Hales he has been mixed up in many unsavory escapades. About a year ago he was arrested for assaulting, brutally beating and robbing an old man named Sudwicks, the attack being made near Kingston, where he had a preliminary hearing. His attorney set up a defense that the justice at Kingston had no process or jurisdiction since the precinct had been transferred to Junction. Subsequently the case came up for hearing at Junction before Judge McCarthy but the defense obtained a change of venue to Manti, the case being tried before Judge Johnson and, the defendant being discharged on the grounds of incompetent witnesses, and several technicalities."
      1899 Oct 26 (newspaper not cited by me at time of copying): "Pete Nielsen's Trial. Important Criminal Action Now Being heard at Junction. (Special Correspondence.) Junction, Oct. 24 – the October term of the district court opened here yesterday, with a large calendar before it. The prospects are that instead of a term of two or three days, as is usual here, we will have a term of two or three weeks. A whole host of lawyers are here, including Judge King and Barlow Ferguson of Salt Lake City, besides practically all of the Richfield bar and the local attorneys. The bulk of the business is civil, there being two or three big water suits to try. ... Business other than the above has been transacted as follows: ... Henry Hales pleaded not guilty to charge of uttering a forged check to Merchant Smith at Marysvale. ..."
      1899 Oct 27, "The Salt Lake Herald": "Circleville Notes. (Special Correspondence.) Circleville, Oct, 23 - County court is now in session at Junction, and a number of our citizens left this morning for the place to attend. ... James Whittaker of Salt Lake City is here as a witness on the Henry Hales forgery case. ..."
      1899 Oct 29, "The Salt Lake Herald," p. 5: "Guilty of Forgery. This was the Verdict In Case Against Henry Hales. (Special Correspondence.) Junction, Oct 26 – The time of the district court was occupied today in trying the case of the state vs. Henry Hales charged with forgery. Hales is the young man of this place, who at the April term, was accused of robbery, took a change of venue to Manti and there was acquitted. He is but 18 years of age. The evidence in the present case showed that he filled up a blank check on the Manti Savings bank for $29.35 in favor of one John Jones, signed the name of James Whittaker thereto, endorsed the same with the name of John Jones and one other and then passed it on George S. Smith, a merchant of Marysvale, by buying some $5 worth of goods and receiving change in cash. The goods were never taken away from the store, but the defendant fled to Provo and Eureka with the money. The offense was committed sometime in May. In July he was apprehended at Eureka. The verdict was guilty. He will be sentenced on Saturday."
      1899 Oct 31, "The Salt Lake Herald": "Verdict for Pat Ryan. (Special Correspondence.) Junction, Oct 28 -The jury this evening in the Ryan et al. vs Wallace et al. case ... Court will convene here again on Monday morning, when Henry Hales will be sentenced if a stay is not secured pending the appeal of his case ..."
      1899 November 4, "The Salt Lake Herald": "Brief Locals. ... Brought Up A Prisoner. Sheriff Stocks of Piute county arrived in the city yesterday from the south, bringing with him a prisoner named Henry Hales who was sentenced to a term of one year in the penitentiary on a conviction of the crime of forgery."
      1900 June 16, "Deseret Evening News," part 2, p. 15: "Case of Robert Attwood – Claimed That a Young man from Vernal Was Illegally Convicted – His Application for Pardon Before the State Board Today – Taken Under Advisement. ... The State board of pardons met today with Acting Governor Hammond in the chair. There were also present Justices Miner and Baskin. The other members are out of the State. There were ten cases scheduled for hearing, but only one was heard. Eight of the applicants asked to have their cases go over until the next meeting, preferring a full membership of the board. One applicant, in the person of Henry Hale, convicted of forgery in the Sixth Judicial district, and sentenced on October 30, 1899, to one year in the State prison, was not represented and the members concluded to postpone his case. ..."
      1900 June 17, "The Salt Lake Herald," p. 5: "Want A Full Board. Convicts Refuse to Submit Applications for Pardon. Nine convicts in the state prison would have run the gauntlet yesterday before the board of pardons with their applications for clemency had a full membership of the board been present. Governor Wells and Supreme Justice Bartch are in the east, and none of the petitioners cared to risk an unfavorable vote with three members, when with five, the full membership sitting in judgment on the cases, one or two adverse votes would not be sufficient to defeat a pardon. Consequently consideration of all nine of the applications for pardons was postponed until next month's meeting, on request of the attorney for petitioners. The postponements affected the following convicts: ... Charles Henry Hales, forgery ..."
      1900 Aug 19, "The Salt Lake Herald," p. 4: "Cases Postponed. Mainly because there was not a full membership of the board present, consideration of these applications was deferred till the September meeting: ... Charles Henry Hales, forgery ..."

      Hon. Board of Pardon
      Gentlemen;
      As my application for a pardon comes up before your Hon. Body for a hearing tomorrow and I have no money to pay for an attorney to appear for me so I beg for the liberty of writing these few lines in my own behalf. I was sentenced here to the State Prison for a term of 1 year and have served almost 8 months, have been a trusty for 5 months and if I have to stay my full time it will work a hard shp and my father who is old and unable to work and is in great need of my help. He has 60 acres of land under cultivation and no one to look after it but a small brother and father has not the money with which to hire help so I hope your Hon. Body will take this our thing under consideration in making your decision. Gentleman of the Board when I leave this prison I will leave with the determination to lead an honest upraised life and if you're Hon. Body should see fit to grant my application I do not think but what I can prove beyond a doubt that I am cable of doing so. I will now leave matters into your hands for do consideration. For further information I refer you to Hon G. N. Dow, Warden.
      Your Humble Servant Henry Hales"

      To the Honorable Board of Pardons,
      Salt lake City, Utah.
      Gentlemen - I am in receipt of a request in writing from your clerk asking for my opinion respecting the applications for pardon filed by Charles henry Hales now serving a term in the State prison for the crime of forgery, and Samuel Chynoweth now serving a term for grand larceny.
      The parties are both young men, hales is still in his minority, I do not remember the age of Chynoweth, but my recollection is that he also is in his minority.
      My attention has been called to a number of letters written by Hales since his incarceration, and I am of the opinion jurying from the tone of his letters and from what I know of him generally that he has reformed, and I do not believe that society and the peace of the community will be menaced or prejudiced should he be pardoned.
      Mr. Chynoweth is a young man of good parentage, and when he was arrested and brought before the court his father appeared and made a thorough investigation of the cause with the determination if he believed his son innocent to employ able counsel and to all in his power to vindicate his son. He took the boy from the courtroom and demanded of him to know the truthfully relate the circumstances of the alleged larceny with which he was charged. The defendant frankly informed his father that he was guilty of stealing the animal, the subject of the larceny. His father advised him to plead guilty, which he did. On motion of the District Attorney I permitted the Elder Chinnoweth to take his son into Kane County to visit his dying mother and he returned with him at the following term of court. There are many other incidents connected with the case that were called to may attention which I deem unnecessary to relate that tended the emphasise the sterling qualities of the defendant's father and his desire to vindicate the law. And I am decidedly of the opinion that it is a case in which executive clemency could be extended without interfering with public justice; in fact, I believe it is a case it which it would be in the interests of society and the execution of the laws in that section of the country to grant a pardon in this case, as Mr. Chinnoweth, the father of the boy, is well known throughout Garfield and Kane counties, and the position that he has taken in the matter is well known to the people. Therefore recommend that Charles Henry Hales and Samuel Chinnoweth be pardoned.
      Respectfully submitted, ... Judge"

      "Stamped Jul 19, 1900.
      To the Honorable State Board of Pardons
      Gentlemen:
      We, your respectfully ask that you grant a pardon to Charles Henry Hales, now serving time in the state prison, for the following reasons:
      He has now served within 41 days of his time and we think, in view of the fact that he is but a youth, (being but 19 years of age) you could well exercise clemency without prejudice to the state and to the betterment of Mr. Hales.
      We think his punishment has been sufficient to meet the ends of justice, and we do not believe the law is calculated as a means of oppression any farther than to work a reformation in the subject to which it is applied, and we believe this has been full accomplished in this case.
      His parents are aged and very much in need of his assistance on the farm, and in duty found you petitioners will ever pray.

      Dear Wells. As the Board of Pardon meets on the 20th of this month and as I understand. Henry Hales formerly of this place but now an inmate of the state Prison serving out a sentence of one year for Forgery will be a candidate for pardon, now as I have been acquainted for about 13 years with young Hales and his people and am familiar with all of the facts and circumstances connected with his conviction having no doubt of his guilt. I am strongly of the opinion that it would be for his best good and that there would be more chances of making a man of him if he is pardoned then would be if his application was denied for I am convinced that he has fully made up his mind that in the future he will lead an honest life. If the board feels that from his prison record it can consistently pardon him. I am quite sure it would meet the approval of his neighbors as they think the fault lies largely with his home training. I am not related to Hales in any way nor on hardly neighborly turns with them. I have no axes to grind. I merely with to see young Hales come back feeling his crime and disgrace has not turned the whole world dead against him and that he still has a chance to outlive it all as he is young now in his 17th year, I am told.
      Yours Truly Chas Morrill"

Second that his father has ___ family and is getting along in years being crippled up with rheumatic and very much in need of the help of his son this summer on the farm. Third that I think the punishment is sufficient to reform him and that farther punishment might result in evil instead of good and or he has served 7 ½ months of his 10 months. That he could be held I believe that if liberated now he would feel like that world was not all harsh but only harsh enough to see to the enforcement of the law.
