The front page has: "The Mormons" which includes: "The St. Louis papers say that more trouble is brewing in the Mormon country...when Williams & Sharp (charged with the murder of the Smiths) went up to stand their trial. Two hundred Mormons appeared at Carthage...armed & disguised as Indians...much murder & bloodshed would ensue..." with a bit more.
