EH 10 GOODWIN'S WEEKLY

T WTBTtU are some folks toward
ihom scandal just naturally
H graitates. Airs. E. E. Shepard
SH 1 one of them She cnn hear more
HH about-town Gossip than the busiest
HB little Newsgntherer in the Burg and
H she is quite as willing: ns the next
H one to let the rest of the folks share
H tu-r Knowledge of Things.
H Last Sunday she emitted several
H SciikIuIouh Morsels which, taken by
H and large, would not seem to Harmon-
H ize with the annual report of Chief
H of Police Grant that Salt Lake is Im-
H maculate as to its Morals and . that
H Naughty People are scarcer in Salt
H Lake than they ever were before.
H (Due to strict police regulation and
JH stu eillance. under the Commission
H Form of Government.)
H Mrs. Shepurd, whose dream of the
H I "tan Utopia is abandoned bars and
Hj Two Parched Tonsils per capita, finds
H fault with the operation of dance
H halls, bath houses, motion picture
H shows, rooming houses. She told a
H Sunday night audience that on New
B Year's night two girls in ns many bath
B pools were distributed among a dozen
H or so men and she left the inference
H 1h.it this distribution was not only
H Immoral but entirely Unfair prob-
H abb to the Rest of the girls.
H No one can prevent Mrs. Shopard
H from gathering all of the scandalous
H information she desires, but some one
H should strongly advise her against ox-
H plotting it to' the evident embnrrass-
H ment of the chief of Police and other
H keepers of the city's morals who in
H making accounts of their steward-
H ship have reported that All Is Well
H along the Potomac.
H The Supreme Court has at last ruled
H upon the contempt case brought
Hj against the Herald-Republican, which
B paper Is to b congratulated upon the
B siucessful conduct of the case. Hiram
H E. Rooth, United States district at-
H torney, and also counsel for the
B paper, made a much better defense of
H the case In the state courts than was
H made by Judge Whiteeotton for the
H Herald-Republican In Its set-to with
H Judge Marshall over the Silver King
H suit. But even at that, a federal
H judge is different from either a dls-
H trlct or supreme judge of the state.
H The majority members of the Su-
H preme court Justices Prick and
H Straup still believe that the paper
H was guilty of a technical contempt,
H however concurring with Justice Mc
H Carty who absolves the paper wlth-
H out qualification. In their opinions
B Justices Straup and Frtck reverse
B Judge Lewis because he punished
jfl various members of the ITerald-Re-
DB publican staff for criminal contempt
Bk without a trial. Why they should hold

as n matter of news the confession
of Thorno that he and Riley had
killed Fassell. When the state was
obtaining a jury for trial of one of
the murderers the paper again print
ed the confession and when the other
defendant wont to trial" the confession
was again printed. Judge Lewis held
that this successive parading o the
confession tended to obstruct the or
derly administration of justice and to
Influence the jury. In neither case
was there difficulty In procuring a
jury nnd later when changes of
venue and new trials were requested
the motions were denied by Judge
Lewis on the ground that the trials
had been fair and impartial and that
there was no prejudice against the
defendants in this county, thus mak
ing it clear that he Was entirely
wrong in his contention that the pub
lication of the confession prejudiced
the case of either murderer.
If Judge Lewis had been right In
his contention that the Herald-Republican
was wrong In -publishing, ns
a matter of news, the confession of
Thorne at the opening of the Thorne
trial, then the whole'system of hand
ling trial news would have to be re
vamped by the newspapers to comply
with the law. If it wore improper
to print, without comment, a "confes
sion, the printing, of any fact pertain
ing to the case would be equally im
proper, If printed during the process
of procuring a jury.
We may not be particularly pleased
with theXIoruld-Ropublicnn's general
troaUnent of news, but we do certain
ly rejoice In the Supreme court's up
setting of an attempt to put blinders
on any newspaper that prints plain,
unvarnished facts at a time when they
are most attractive.
Before the present city administra
tion gets very far with its meter idea,
folks who are paying for a water ser
vice they do not get will have some
thing to say regarding the city com
mission. Maybe they will toll the
legislature jibout it, and perhaps they
will wait until another campaign rolls
around. Judge Colburn told of his
experience with a meter which
worked while he. slept whether the
water was running or not, and when
another citizen arose In the Commer
cial club to air his grievance against
the waterworks department, aiming to
show incompetency, he was ruled out
because of the rank Irrelevancy of his
If the waterworks officials can con
the people of Salt Lake into believ
ing that the meter is the cure-all for
waiter Ills, we may get meters, but
before that time arrives It Is hoped
that the waterworks department will
hae made the best use of the supply
at hand. Instead of making the situ
ation bad by incompetent supen islon
of the water distribution.
Jesse D. Jewkes. the new state
treasurer, Is t lying to work twenty
five hourg a day. He probably tries
to count the state mone, dollar for
dollar, each day so that he may be
su the funds one Intact. At an
rate, he Is earning a reputation for
being the most diligent, stiektoitlye
0fl$nl of the state administration.
Wherefore one of- his associates wfls
led to remark that the constitution pre
vents him frob being re-elected, and
that no matter how hard he works he
cannot hope to get credit for all of his
expended effort. Maybe the late
Fisher Harris had the right idea of
public service, after all. By the
greatest accident In the world he was
olocted city treasurer along with the
entire Democratic ticket In T003. He
hud. merely permitted the use of his
name by his party because he felt sure
there was no chance of being elected.
Frank Knox was double-crossed by
some of his admiring friends In that
campaign and he wont down to defeat
with the whole Republican ticket.
Harris was city treasurer. He hadn't
been In office many months before the
charge was made that he never paid
any attention to his duties; that he
had, In truth, never visited the city
treasurer's office except to get his
"That's a cursed lie," said Mr. Har
ris. "I always have the boys mall
