ing that assistant postmasters, cash
iers and other employees in postof
fices of the first, eecond and third
classes shall give bond direct to the
United States has not proven satisfac
tory. Originally a postmaster was re
sponsible under his bond for all
moneys received, and it was his duty
to account therefor even if a loss was
due to a subordinate. A vexatious
question as to responsibility for losses
has arisen since the act referred to
became effective. If the postmaeter
makes good the loss, there is. no pro
vision for him to succeed to the rights
of the United States under the clerk's
bond. If It should be Judicially deter
mined that the bonding of the clerk
direct to the United States relieves the
postmaster, 'the Government would
have no recourse in the event the los3
exceeded the amount of the bond. I
therefore earnestly renew ,my recom
mendation that the act be repealed,
and suggest a law be enacted requir
ing assistant postmasters, cashiers and
other employees to give bonds to post
masters direct, and holding postmas-v,
ters responsible under their own bonds'
for any and all acts and defauts oc
curring at their respective offices.

for the purpose of constructing look
outs wherever, in the opinion of the
Postmaster-General, the same may be
AFTER THE LOTTERIES.
23. That the Interstate commerce
law be amended to prohibit common
carrier, to wit. telegraph and express
companies, or any of their employees,
from aiding and abetting in the green
goods or lottery swindles or any other
scheme, carried on partly by mail and
partly by common carrier, and which
Is In violation of postal laws.
24. That a small appropriation be
made by Congress for the purpose of
enabling the Postmaster-General to
Investigate the feasibility of telephone
service In connection witli the rural
free delivery service.
20. That legislation be enacted au
thorizing the exclusion from the malls
of nil matter relating to the class of
enterprises known as guessing con
tests, 2C. That Congress prohibit by law
the use of the postal service of the
United States for the promotion of
27. That no change be made In the
title of the Assistant Attorney-General
for the Postoffice department, but that
the office lie made a Presidential one
and that Us . Incumbent be made. In
fact as well as in name, an officer of
the Department of Justice, subject to
the authority and direction of the
Attorney-General of the United States;
that his salary be increased' to 5000
REORGANIZING THE BUREAUS.
In concluding his report Mr. Payne
says: "It is proper to say that its
preparation has been delayed several
weeks, owing to demands upon my time
by reason of the investigation which
has been made Into the affairs of the
department, commencing about March
1, 1903, and which has continued under
my direction since that time.
"This investigation has resulted in a
complete reorganization of some of the
bureaus of the department and. It is
hoped, has eradicated all dishonest. Ir
regular and criminal practices, which
the Investigation has developed as hav

(Continued from Page 1.)
He followed the latter avocation at
Idaho Falls before his return to this
city. When he returned January 2nd
he had no money to' pay room rent for
himself and his false friend Prothero.
Getting credit for his room at the Oc
cidental rooming house he put his gun
in his pocket and started out to raise
the wind In his old fashion.
TRIED IT AGAIN.
He selected the scene of his first
hold-up for his operations and went
to the end of the Brigham street line,
where he met Conductor Andrus on
his ear at 11:25. The conductor and
motorman had started for their respect
ive end preparatory to starting for town
when the conductor was stopped by
Shockley at the door. The bandit was
bareheaded and had a handkerchief
over his face. Ho told Andrus to put
up his hands and. when the conductor
obeyed, went through his pockets, tak
ing all his money but Ignoring his gold
watch. Shockley thep ran south on
Thirteenth East and returned to his
rooming house, where he paid his rent
next morning out of the $1S which he
hnd secured from Andrus.
HOME IN MISSOURI.
Shockley says he was born in Mary's
county, Missouri, where he has a father,
mother and two sisters, twenty-six '
years ago. He left home in 1S95, when
he was 17 years old. Since that time
he has. drifted from place to place In
the West doing such work as he was
capable of doing. He mentions his job
as motorman In San Francisco and as
waiter in Idaho Falls, and says that he
worked last summer in Salt Lake frolic
king subscribers for the Salt Lake Herald.
OFFICERS WERE SURPRISED.
Did Not Expect a Breakdown in
There Is no doubt that the officers
themselves woro surprised at Shocklcy's
sudden and complete breakdown, after the
bold front ho maintained throughout the
sweating processes to which ho had been
subjected during the thrco days before.
While, his alibi story varied slightly in
detnll under the tlerco ernsa-queztloulng
or tho offlcerrt ur.d at best was lacking
as to definltencss. yet his story In tho
main was rigidly adhered to and there
seemed little hope of securing a con
fession nt least until more positive cvl
denco could ho secured. Tho man ap
peared quite cheerful throughout It all.
Occasionally when a particularly leading
question was fired nt him ho would be
betrayed Into a start of surprise, as
though wondering Just how much the of
ficers knew, but ho was quick to recover
and reasBtime his calm demeanor. Tt
was when the excitement of the Inquisi
tion was over and the confinement In his
cell gavo his conscience a free relgn that
the real rrcntnl suffering came which up-fc-t
his nerves. The first Intimation of
the breakdown came Saturday night,
when as he paced his coll he several
times turned quickly to the guard and
exclaimed: "1 wonder If the kid has
peached" referring, of course, to Pro-'thcro.
HE WILL BE HELD.
Prothero Will Be Held as a Witness
in the Case.
Prothero, Shocklcy's roommate, who
gavo tho first Information against him,
will ho held as a witness until tho case
shall have been fully settled. No infor
mation has been filed acalnst him, nor
ulll there bo, so far as the police depart
ment Is concerned, and he has not even
been placed under bonds, but he expresses
a perfect willingness to remain In tho
prison until the case has been disposed of.
Should ho make any attempt to secure his
lelcasc before the State Is through with
hjm he would bo placed under bonds,
which would hold him, but It Is not be
lieved that such action will be necessary.
RIOT IN A CHURCH.
Three Men, Alleged Anarchists, Cre
ate Trouble in Pittsburg House
Pittsburg, Jan. 10. Three men cre
ated a small riot today in St. Casi
mer's Lithunlnn Roman church by
making the declaration that Sisters of
Charity were not good women. The
men were denounced by the pastor,
Rev. Father John S. Sutkeltcls, as an
archists, and he boldly declared that
they were implicated In a plot to as
sassinate ex-President McKlnley.
The occasion for the trouble was a
meeting to arrange for work in the
parochial schools of the church. The
usefulness of the Sixers In this work
had Just been praised by one of the
speakers, when a man in the audience
arose andisaid: "We will not have the
Sisters. They are not good women,
and, being such, should not have con
trol of our children."
Immediately there was confusion.
The speaker way joined by two others
and, standing In the pew, they defied
the men of the meeting to attack them.
A rush was being made for the three
men when the priest told his congre
gation to let them depart in peace. In
the meantime a police call had been
sent in from the episcopal residence,
but when the officers arrived the in
truders had been nllowed to depart.
The priest later said the disturbance
was not raised because of the Sisters,
but because the anarchists had de
clared his life forfeited. The reason
for this he is unable to explain. He
said a band of anarchists exists in this
city and holds regular meetings?. He
said he learned this from Lawrence
Pious, a college chuin of his in Rus
sia, who drew the lot which made him
the choice of the "reds" to murder
President McKlnley. Pious refused
to carry out the plot and lied to
Michigan, where he died.
Father Sutkeitels told the police that
he was convinced the anarchists were
preparing to take his life, and tonight
his residence Is being strongly guarded

This afternoon he addressed about C00
persons In a local auditorium. Ho wanted
to make himself clear on the race ques
tion. He said the Anglo-Saxon rhco is
superior to the negro race, but that there
was a time when the black man was su
perior to the white, and tho white man
should be just to the negro and endeavor
to lift him up. Whatever the difference
in race might be on earth, the whlto man
and black man were brothers before God
Dowle found fault with tho Southern
people in that they were too sleepy ami
slow, hot up to date, and he rldlerjled the
slow timo made by the railroad whoHu
KUfcst he has hern during the past sev
eral days. His only reference to the pros
pective establishment of a Zlon City and
plantation on the Texas coast was con
tained In the statement that he might nt

people In San Antonio.

GOOD WORK OF POLICE

night of the murder, said Prothero,
Shockley left the house about 10
o'clock and did not return until 12:30.
He seemed greatly agitated and could
not sleep. Early In the morning ho
heard the newsboys calling the papers,
and went down-stairs and bought one.
On his way back he had an attack of
heart failure, his heart, having been
weakened by cigarette smoking, and
he told Prothero that he did not think
he would get up the stairs alive.
Shockley seemed greatly excited by
the account of the murder as pub- i
llehed in the newspaper, and remarked
to Prothero, "I had to do It." I
These circumstances, Prothero said,
aroused his suspicions and caused his
visit to the police station. He ad
mitted that Shocklcy had paid his

DANGER OF LYNCHING.
Upon the arrest of Shocklcy word was
given out in some manner that the
guilty man had been arrested. In a
few minutes a large crowd collected
In front of the station which was aug
mented from time to time by vc-ngeful
street car men bent on lynching the ac
cused. The mob grew more and more
threatening and, at S:30, Shockley and
Prothero, dressed in policemen's uni
forms, were smuggled Into hacks and
driven to tho State prison.
PUT THROUGH THE "SWEAT."
On Friday afternoon Chief Lynch,
County Attorney Wcstervelt and Detec
tives Chase nnd Raleigh went to the
penitentiary and put In several hours
catechising Shockley. He admitted the
purchase of the hat found In the street
car after the murder and the owner
ship of a revolver, but said he had
given both to a man named Frank
Walsh at Ogden before he came to Salt
Lake. He told an almost Impregna
ble story of his whereabouts at the time
of the crime, alleging that he had been
in various saloons and other public
places looking for an acquaintance. As
he did not claim to have spoken to
anyone during this time it seemed im
possible to disprove his statements.
KNEW HIM EY HIS SOCKS.
The street car men who had suffered
at the hands of the lone highwayman,
were taken into Shockley's presence and
all said that he bore a general re
semblance to the robber. A woman
identified him positively as a passenger
on ah eastbound Second South street
car at 10:30 the night of the murder.
She said she knew him by his socks,
which were unusually thin for the
weather. ' i
STORIES TOLD BY OTHERS.
Other witnesses made statements
which were at variance with the theory
of Prothero's guilt. Two women claim
ed to have seen him at the time of the
murder andxa motorman recognized him
I as a man he saw at 11 :1S near Fifth
South and Tenth East.
' SEARCH FOR WALSH.
Although the police placed no credence
in Shockley'o statement that he had
given his hat and gun to Frank Walsh
they determined to look up Walsh and
obtain positive proof that the story was
untrue. With that purpose in view Cap
tain Durbidge went to Ogden Saturday
and put In the afternoon looking for
Walsh. He failed to find him but he
satisfied himself that Walsh had received-no
hat from Shockley.
HE STOOD PAT.
When questioned by Detectives Chaae
and Raleigh Saturday evening Shock
ley stood pat, sticking to his alibi like
Such was the situation yesterday
morning when Shockley, overcome by
grief and remorse, sent for Chief Lynch
and made a clean breast of the whole
