Martha J. Cannon is brought into the third district court. The grand jury complains that she will not answer certain questions, including: "Are you not now a pregnant woman?" .... "Are you not now with child by your husband, [First Counselor] George Q. Cannon?" On still declining to answer the court adjudges her guilty of contempt, and pending sentence she is placed under bonds of $2,500, which are subsequently raised to $5,000.
