The police were immediately notified

Superintendent W. P. Reed of the
street car company had been notified in
the meantime and with Dr. Richards,
went out In a carriage.
ONLY CLUE A HAT.
The hat of the holdup, a light new
felt one, was found In the cnr. Also
the gun referred to and a leaden bullet
on the scat. This was all they found.
Residents of the vicinity had heard the
three.shots fired, but none had gone out
to ascertain the cause of the reports.
REMOVED TO HOSPITAL.
Word of the shooting was sent to the
car barns, and Motorman Allan Burt
was sent out In a special car to bring In
'No. 77. Brighton was removed from the
car and placed In the patrol" ambulance
and taken with all speed to the Holy
Cross hospital, where he was attended
by Dr. Richards.
SEARCH FOR CLUES.
The officers searched for some more
clues to the murderous robber, who had
a good start on them, nothing having
been learned of the affair until after the
last car had arrived at live minutes

Burt broug!ft''tlYei body of Gleason to

fallen. He had Instructions to take the
body to the establishment of Joseph

speed, only stopping In front of the po

was shot, by a little round hole In his
overcoat and the blood that had oozed

News ,of the shootlg did not reach
the city Willi after 12 6'clock. The car
men were Just coming off shift and
went at once to the police station to
learn some of the particulars in icgard
to their comrades' doath .
WANTED TO AVENGE MURDERS.
The office at the station was a crowd
of surging men In blue couls and hats
with numbery on them. They all knew
who the men were, but did not know
how seriously they were hurt. They
only knew there had been a shooting,
and they were all ready to go out and
avenge their death.

There was talk of cutting a ear and
all going out, but they were informed
that they had bc-ltcr not until some
thing more definite was heard. Police
Captain Burbldge was at the station,
but had heard nothing as yet from his
men, who had been sent out earlier.
When the men were about to take a car

they all ran to the center of the street
to stop him. They boarded the car pell

It was believed at first that one of the
soldiers nt the Fort had committed the
foul deed. The finding of the white hat
led to this conclusion, and dire threats
were made about what would be done

Idaho State Land Board Refuses Ap

Boise. Ida., Jan. ;. At a meeting held
today the State Land board, after receiv
ing the report of Stato Engineer Wayno
Darlington upon tho subject, adopted a
resolution denying the application of tho
Idaho River Improvement company for
permission to construct booms and hold
ing works on the Clearwater river. Tho
application was filed some months aco by
FrnnclH Jenkins, B. F. O'Nell, G. 'G.
Pickett and others.
After detailing tho results of his Inspec
tion of tho stream and the locations for
I ho proposed works, which was very thor
ough, tho Stale Engineer concludes his re
port as follows:
"Tho proposed improvements would bo
of no benefit to the rafting of logs, but
would bo of limited advantage In driving
single timbers, as It would keep them
from lodging on tho bars protected and
ould not extend the season of driving
beyond the time when driving is possible
without imnrovoment. j
"Tho sorting works would cause unne

"Comparing the estimated cost of these
proposed improvements, $3000 which Is a
liberal llKure with tho enormous volume
of timber which can only find Its way to
market through this waterway. It appears
that this franchise would yield a revenuo
for which no compensating cost Is in
volved nor compensating benefits obtained
by tho individual citizen or the Stato at
"l do not consider tho granting of this
franchise as asked for. on the plans and
Npcclllcatlons. a necessity of tho dovclop
inent of the lumber Industry In that
region; nor will tho rcftiBal to grant It
Impede the dovelopmoht of tho country In
any way "
Tho companv asking for this franchise
camo into existence last winter at the
t;mo of tho great fight In the Legislature
over the Lewlston boom bill. That bill
was defeated, and some of Its bitterest
opponents In and out of tho Legislature
became Interested In the new company
that afterward sought tho franchise that
has now been denied.

Two Yale Alumni Meet in Omaha

Omaha, Neb., Jan. C A Yale college
yell from the cell of the city jail at day
break this morning called tho attention
of the sleepy bluecoats to a reunion by
two Yale alumni whom a freak of chance
brought together in the same cell after a
separation of fourteen years.
M. George, c.v-Councilman, and Everltt
Robinson of Detroit lived In the earne
rooms on the Yale campus when they
wcro in the class of 'IK) together. They
consoled themselves on graduation with
the promise of a ypeuy reunion.
Robinson, who was In Salt Lako this

In tho newspaper ofllrcs. Falling to find
it. he drink hard. George committed tho
same fault the same night and the police
closed !'. on both.
When they came to In Iho morning and
saw cucli other on opposite sides of the
ci-II. the eyes of both widened like
saucers. "I'm d d!'" ejaculated both In
a breath. 'How came you here?"
Till tho police inuglstrato released them

the miners have built.

that no reasons exist which should

"There has been no settlement," said IH
Mr. Kramer today, "and any talk of il

will pay the strikers If wo owe them,

It is for the courts to decide. Suits for JH

It is said that the attorneys for the fH
strikers submitted the proposition that
a settlement be left to a committee
which should be entirely disinterested
in the struggle for union recognition.
None of the propositions which were
submitted have aroused a great deal
of interest on the part of the company.

the strikers will reach a large figure. jH
