Title Page8
Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION barroom brawl. The evidently quite resilient victim survived, however, despite the necessity for a good many stitches to close his wounds. In an Illinois barn, Charles Duryea built and on September 21, 1893 unveiled what would be a controversial new invention, America's first successful gas-powered vehicle. It would come to be known as the automobile. The contraption was less than a year old and yet unseen in Utah Territory when the Salt Lake City Council passed an ordinance prohibiting "fast driving." Councilmen referred, however, not to automobiles, but to horses on the city streets. In a single day, five riders were fined $2 each in Police Court and a sixth paid $5 on the added charge of "using abusive language to the arresting officer." For many years to come, motorists whose engines had stalled would be taunted by carriage drivers shouting, as they passed by, "Get a horse!" St. Mark's Hospital, which had long operated in comparatively makeshift quarters, moved in 1893 into its new building at 800 North 500 West on the outskirts of Salt Lake City. It was a year to the day after the cornerstone ceremony had taken place. In the sporting world, the Stanley Cup was presented for the first time in 1893. Today it's the oldest trophy awarded professional athletes in North America. The first winner was the Montreal Amateur Athletic Association, which actually captured it by default because of a dispute about who should compete for it. A year later, Montreal defeated Ottawa 3-1 to cement its claim to ice hockey supremacy. The cup cost only $48.67 and was given by Frederick Arthur Baron Stanley of Preston, England, who served as Governor General of Canada from 1888 through 1893. Lizzie Borden gained dubious fame in 1893, too ~ she was charged with the murder of her parents in Fall River, Massachusetts. The crime inspired the poetic epitaph: "Lizzie Borden took an axe and gave her mother 40 whacks; and when she saw what she had done, she gave her father 41!" Lizzie, by the way, was acquitted when tried and the crime was never solved.
