renzo Crosby, an elder in tho Mormon
church, whllo en route from Atlanta,
Ga., where he hud been stationed until

fatally wounded himself In a berth in a
Pullman sleeper on the southbound
Chicago & Alton train near Hlgbee,
Mo. Ho was brought to Kansas City
and placed in the City hospital, where
he died this evening.
Crosby wan unconscious when
brought to this city. In his pockets
were found two letters, one signed Mil

ently .from his wife, o,nd which Indi
cated some domestic trouble, and an
other signed Olive, from 353 West Fifth
South street, Salt Lake City. Crosby,
who was 35 years old, shot himself
twice, one bullet penetrating his brain.
He was treated by a railway surgeon
who occupied a berth In the same car
with him, but little could bo done for

PLAINT AGAINST SPOUSE.
Officers at Murray arrested Edward

hotel at that place, last night on the
charge of disturbing the peace. He is
accused of having beaten bis wife. She
begged for his release from custody for
the reaeon, she stated, that she wanted
him to wait on the table at. dinner.
Marahal Mauss was attracted to the
hotel yesterday aftarnoon by the
screams of the woman. He found' her
badly bruised as a result. It Is claimed,
of an attack by her husband. She re
fused! to make a complaint against the
man on the charge of .assault and bat
tery, so he was taken Into custody for
creating a disturbance.
The woman begged that- he be. released
and threatened to sue the city for his
detention. Her only object in wanting
him released, she said, was to secure -his.
services In waiting on the table at dinner-time.

He was set apart to do missionary

hence it could not have been an acci

It will be taken by wagon to the late

TROUBLE IN CARBON
MAY BE REVIVED
Demolli and Price Again at Work Among the Strikers and
the Feeling Against the Company Seems to
Grow in Bitterness.
Reports from the mine superinten
dents at Winter Quarters and Clear
Creek received at the offices of the Utah
Fuel company yesterday state that a
clash between the miners who are out
on strike and' the civil authorities is Im
minent at any time. Extra company
guards have been placed on duty and
the situation is said to be critical.
So alarming was the report that Gen
eral Manager Williams left at once for
Scofleld, the scene of tho reported
trouble. A special train will take him
from Colton to that place. Other offi
cials of tho company accompanied him
on tho trip.
It is stated that Demolli and Price,
the union representatives, who have
been largely responsible for tho contin
uance of the strike, have announced a
mass meeting which will be held at Sco
fleld today. It was also stated by the
mine superintendents that the strikers
proposed to parade and march In a body
to Clear Creek. In order to prevent their
entrance Into that camp an extra force
of guards was at once stationed at the
border of company property to refuse
permission to enter.
For the purpose of preventing tho out
break which was feared If the miners ,
should march into Clear Creek the civil 1
authorities at Scofleld decided that no .
parade would be permitted in that town.
They did not forbid mass meetings,
however, and It is said that Price and
Demolli have invited all the strikers to
bo present today when a monster meet
ing Is expected.
Those who have visited the mining
camps of Carbon county recently declare
that the situation thero is more serious
thdn at any time since the strike was
declared. The miners who .aro out of
work are said to be growing desperate,
and provisions are becoming scarce.
They are still living In tents and the

rigors of the severe winter have not
tended to alleviate their bitterness.
A scarcity of provisions has also as
sisted in increasing the sullenness of
the strikers. The union has contributed
a certain amount towards the suste
nance of each of tho strikers with their
families, but the amount does not suf
fice in a county where provisions are
dear and fuel is practically unobtain
able. "Indeed, I believe the situation there
now is decidedly more threatening than
ever before," said a Judge who presides
In that district, while in the city yes
terday. "The men and their families
are really In Want in many cases, and
whero want exists love does not abide.
"It is a picturesque scene, around the
various camps. Small villages of tents
are standing in the snow near the regu
lar towns, and It Is there that the strik
ers are living and keeping up their fight
for recognition against the company.
How they get coal enough to keep them
warm is more than I know, but there
has been no real, abject suffering up to
"The men have an ugly look, one of
determination and anger, but give no
evidence of defeat. If the winter is
passed and the farmers return to their
homes, as threatened, prospects of a vic-
tory for tho strikers will certainly be
I much increased. In my opinion there
may bo trouble at any time, and if there
I was ever any need for Sute interference
it looks like something In that line
might be necessary before long.
"The impression which has prevailed
that most of the strikers have left is
wrong. There are several hundred of
them still in the county and they are
as firm now, even though braving the
hardships of a severe winter and lis
tening to the walls of hungry children,
as they were when they went out on
strike. I don't know what the result :
will be. but It will certainly be interest- '
ing. People who live In the county look
for a cllmux at any time."

HOW COL. BRUBACK
CAME TO HIS DEATH
A post-mortem examination over tho
remains of Theodore Bruback, conduct
ed yesterday afternoon at his late resi
dence, disclosed a dislocation pr press
ure on the spinal cord between the first
and second vertebrae. The examining
physicians also found a severe bruise
on the upper edgo of tho forehead and
one near the back of the head on top.
Yesterday Col, Bruback's hat was
found Just beside the ladder where he
fell, and was badly broken. The sup
poeition now is that the unfortunate
man struck his head against a piece qf
projecting rock, causing the bruise on
the forehead and rendering him mo
mentarily unconscious, which caused
him to lose his hold of the ladder and
fall to the ground.
The autopsy w.13 conducted by
Dr. A. S. Bower, Dr. F. B. Steele and
Dr. A. J. Hosmer.
fii addition to his life Insurance, Col.
Bruback carried accident policies
amounting to $20,000, and It was to de
termine whether or not his death was
due to accident, or to natural causes,
that, the examination was held.

Superintendent Nolson Urges Upon
County Superintendents Wisdom
of Rounding Up Teachers.
State Superintendent of Public In
struction Nelson Is exerting every ef
fort to make tho coming State normal
summer Institute a source of great
profit to every teacher In the State, and
to that end Is endeavoring to secure a
full attendance. In a letter Issued yes
terday to the County Superintendents
of tho State, Prof. Nelson urges upon
them the desirability of their co-operation
In the matter of inducing their
teachers to profit by the means of ad
vancement which will be afforded by
the summer school for educators. The
lotter Is as follows:
You will please And Inclosed herewith a
copy of tho announcement of tho Stato
normal summer Institutes to bo held at tho
University of Utah from tho 6th till tho
18th of June, 1504. A circular will soon
follow, showing the courses which will bo
offered, tho names of tho Instructors and
lecturers who will take part, and all
other necessary information In regard to
Permit mo to call your special attention
to pago 0 of the announcement. You will
notice on that pago a copy of tho com
munication sent by this offlco to tho presi
dent of tho University, wherein it Is stated
that at tho last department meeting of
county superintendents of tho Utah Stato
Teachers association, It was moved and
carried unanimously to ask tho authorl
; ties of the Stato University to keep their
training school open two weeks during tho
University summor school session that the
teachers of the Stato might have an op
portunity of attending tho training school
and of deriving tho benefits which would
result therefrom. On this communication
tho announcement says: "It is in re
sponso to this unanimous request of tho
superintendents of schools throughout tho
Stato that tho officers of tho University
have undertaken to arrango for this nor
mal school Institute."
Our positions as county public school
superintendents contcai plate our support
to the educational institutions of tho
State. Tho fact that tho Univorslty re
gents havo acted favorably on our request
places us under moral obligations to sup
port the Stato normal Institute. Tho re
sponsibility which wo have assumed in re
gard to this institute will, I am sure,
awaken us fully to tho realization that
our efforts should bring to It substantial
aid. I am convinced that our teachers
cannot bo too strongly impressed with tho
necessity of attondlng a summer school at
which they may derive knowledge and n
spiratlon for their work from some of the
best educators In tho United States. By
putting forth your best efforts to get your
teachers In this Institute, you will not
only be discharging a duty, but you will
also be Instrumental in bringing knowl
edge and an educational Influence Into
your community which will more than
compensate you f6r tho extra energy expended.

will havo somo difficulty returning Mr.
Roosevelt to tho White Houso. "I believe
that It will bo next to impossible, now
that Senator Hanna is gone, to enlist tho
support of the railroads In behalf of tho
Republican ticket," said he. "Thero Is an
immense amount of crltlclsn of the Presi

tho- Democratic party. 1 may say that I
am yet a Democrat in theory, but, don't
you know, theories don't run govern
ments. Tho fact Is that I have found that
tho best practical results are achlovod by
tho Republicans. Democratic principles
are, indeed, excellent in tho abstract, but
this is not an Ideal world, and, thcrcforo
wo should not havo Idealists or dreamers
to run it, ao I suppose you could sum up
tho situation by saying that my heart la
still with tho Democrats, but my head is
with tho Republicans."
Mayor Morris mado a great economy
play in tho Council last Monday night
that has created no llttlo fun at his ex
pense. Ho had a resolution passed which
provided that his secretary should act as
clerk of the Board of Public Works. Hla
intention, it la claimed, was to unload tho
expense of tho secretaryship on the city,
but It has beon pointed out to tho Mayor
that tho City Recorder shall act as clerk
to tho Board of Public Works, and, fur
thermore, that such an, assignment as tho
Mayor proposed cannot be mado by reso
lution. It Is up to Mayor Morris to pay
for tho luxury of a private secretary out
of his own salary.
