130 years ago today - Aug 31, 1893 (Thursday)

The Supreme Court of Utah handed down a decision in the Church suits, to the effect that the government, under the escheat clause of the Edmunds-Tucker law of 1887, was entitled to confiscate the Gardo House, the coal lands and the Church farm; but that the Historians' office and the Tithing yard were excluded and legally the property of the Church. The case was appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court.
