LITTLE DOUBT OF
Wounded Prisoner Admltss Thafc-H
Once Belonged to "Soapy"
William "Wilson, tho wounded man-now
at tho Holy Croas hospital, who was ar
rested for tho robbery of a. work train at'
Callentes, In which $3000 was taken, and
who was shot at Mllford while resisting
arrest, Is believed by the offlcora to havo
a long criminal record on the Pacific
const. On his way to thlB city Wllaon ad
mitted to his guard that he was with
"54oapy" Smith s famous gang at Skag
Uay. Ho confesses that ho was lately on
the Pacific coast, and the fact that ho
was once associated with "Soapy" Smith
leads tho officers to believe that he may
have- buen mixed up with the gang that
recently tried to blncknmll the Southern
Pacific out of $10,000 by threatening to
wreck passenger trains between San Fran
cisco and Los Angoles.
Wilson's statement that he was un
armed when the attempt was made to
arrest him Is untrue. He carried a gun In
his hand when ho emerged from the car
and handed it to his partner. His state
ment that ho had no partner Is also un
true, as the partner, whoso name Is Mc
Cormlck, purchased tho railroad tickets
for tho two and "Wilson admitted that hla
partner had escaped.
I Wilson and McCormlck have been Idcn
I tilled ns the two men who cashed one of
tho Btolen checks at Do Lamar on the
day after tho robbery and Wilson when
i captured wore some of the clothing pur
chased with the stolen check.

THE NEWS REVERSES ITSELF
The Deadly Parallel Shows the Position of That Paper
Last Year on the Council and Mayor Question and Its
Position Now. )
The attitude of tho DeBeret News on the question' of tho Mayor's preroga
tives and the rights of Council, Is so notoriously inconsistent that a few ex-'
cerpts In parallel will afford some especially interesting reading this morn
ing. The 11 rat column tells how tho News viewed the situation when the
Mayor of Salt Lake City was a. Republican. The other now that it has
Mayor Morris on Its hande.
The City Council In disagreeing with
tho Mayor on any public measure or
appointment, docs not "usurp" any
thing. It simply exercises its lawful
authority, conferred by statute. News,
March 25, 1903.
The idea that the City Council must
confirm the Mayor's appointments'
le so absolutely abBUrd as to need
no argument" to tho well Informed.
News, March 2D, 1903.
The Council Is as much a factor as
the Mayor In making appointments
and also in effecting removals from of
fice. The authority is no more vested
In him than In that body. This Is bo
plain a matter that any one with ordi
nary sense need not err therein. News,
March 25, 1903.
Speaking of tho system now In force,
which authorizes the Mayor to make
appointments by and with the consent
of the Council, the News of March 25,
1903, insisted, "The system is all right.
It should be maintained and ap
plauded, not derided or condemned.
Every attempt to abolish it and set up
an autocracy here ought to bo stamped
out without compunction or hesitation."
The authority Is no more vested in
him the Mayor than In that body
the Council. News, March 25, 1903.
But whatever opinions certain Indi
viduals may entertain for the purposes
of their own, antagonistic to this view
I that the present system of appoint
ments Is alright the law has estab
lished the system, It has worked well
from the beginning, it Is a check on the
personal projects and private ambitions
of men who ape the RULER when In
office and despise to be the servant of
the people. The system is alright, and
Is only objected to by the extreme partl
enn, the schemer and the fcatherer of
h's own nest at the public expense.
'-lews, March 25, 1903.
1 As there appears to be a disposition
to cripple the city's executive, to block
his way and to usurp has authority, it
will be just as well for all concerned to
understand the law In relation to these
matters, and for the Mayor to use the
authority vested in him thereby.
f News, Feb. 18, 1904.
Disguise of the purpose of the plot
ters does not seem to be even attempt
ed. It is open and unconcealed. Usurp
ation of the powers of the Mayor, and
dictation of what he shall or shall not
do, are unblushlngly attempted and
blatantly countenanced and advocated
by a public Journal. News, Feb. 18,
The purpose of the faction that Is in
conspiracy to thwart the Mayor In the
exerclBe of his proper authority, have
exhibited their motive and their pur
pose so plainly that everybody with
eyes can see them. "Spoils" Is the
watchword. The public welfare Is
nothing to them. Harmony, order, con
sistency and the conduct of municipal
business are side Issues In their view.
News, Feb. 20. 1904.
The Council has no authority to made
naminations, nor to dictate to the
Mayor whom he shall appoint. News,
Feb. 18, 1904.
It Is not only the right, but the duty
of the Mayor to make appointments for
all the appointive ofllces In the city,
and alBO of the agents and employees
therein, except such help as Is needed
In cases of emergency. News, Feb. IS,
The News at this date advocated the
passage of an ordinance glvlns to the
Mayor power he does not have under
the system the News declared is "al
right." and "should be maintained and
But in the present emergency it ap
pears very clearly that the powers
vest in the executive must be main
tained, and the laws in relation thereto
must be held paramount. The rights
of the Council must not be Impaired,
but when they are perverted for pur
poses of obstruction and personal ends,
an Issue is presented that will have to
be met with the strongest force that
can be lawfully exercised News, Feb.
The News as. this time favors cnang
i Ing the system by means of the Har
tensteln ordinance giving to the Mayor
unusual powers and depriving Council .
of the right .of confirmation or rfejec-
PREPARE FOR THE FRAY
A meeting of considerable Importance
was held by the Young Men's Republi
can club last evening in Judge Tanner'o
courtroom In the city and county bulld
Ihff. A report was presented to the meet
ing suggesting that the club Incorpo
rate; that its capital stock be 55000.
stock to be divided into 5000- shares
of the par value of 51 each, to
be non-transferable and fully paid up
when ia&ued ; the corporation to exist
for fifty years, unless sooner dissolved
by process of law.
J. J. Meyers and A. E. Beverldge
urged the adoption of the report, but
were successfully opposed by P, P.
Chrlstensen and "W. M. McCren. The
last two named were opposed to orga
nizing on a stock basis plan, and stated
that by so doing they placed- themselves
on a basis with any common business
concern, which was organized for the
pecuniary benefit of its members. They
urged the members to organize under i
the charitable clause, as It would be
cheaper and much easier. The mem
bers voted In favor of the latter
scheme, and the call of the meeting to
legally pass on the acceptance of this
scheme will be publicly advertised un
d;r the name of the Fremont club.
At this same meeting the club will al
so decide as to whether it wishes here
after to be known as- the Fremont or
Wasatch club, instead of tho Young !
Men's Republican club. At the meeting
last evening it was bIbo decided to levy
a membership fee of $5 on all the en
According to the report, tho purpose
of the club Bhall be to uphold and en
courage pure and patriotic government,
to unqualifiedly support the uomlnoca
o the Republican party and to provide
social relaxation for Its members. It
shall havo the power to acquire and
dispose of such real estate and personal,
proporty as may be necessary for the
proper conduct of the club.
The committee which was appointed
to render a decision as to what district
should receive the money for polling the
largest Republican vote In the last city
election, reported as follows;
After carefully considering the question
as to what method should be adoptod in
determining what district polled the
"largest per cent of Its Republican vote"
at tho last election, this committee dc
' elded to take the total number of Republi
can votes In a district, as shown by the
canvass during tho last campaign, and
tho total Republican vote for Mnyor in
that district as shown by tho returns at
raid election, and then determine what
per cent the latter Is of the former This
method has been pursued In reaching tho
following results: Four districts made ap
plication for the prize, the Second. Sixth,
Seventh and Forty-first Each district
chairman wae notified to bring In his
checker's list, and all responded except
the Forty-first, which district, on that
account, wo are compelled to omit from
, this contest. In tho first throo districts
the results are as follows:
Checker's Result of Por
District List Elect'n. Ct.
Second 352 225 .9
Sixth 202 227 112
Seventh 241 257 106.0
Wo therefore respectfully recommend
that tho cash prlzo of $25 bo awarded to
tho Sixth voting district, and that it bo
paid to the chairman of sold district

DICK ELECTED TO
SUCCEED H ANN A I
(Continued From Page 1.) Hl
and where he has lived ever since, first
became Identified with politics when he,
was little more than years of age, and
he has been constantly engaged In poll- '
tics ever since. At that time he was
elected Auditor of Summit county on
the Republican ticket
Born In Akron in 1858, he received
what educational advantages the pub
lic schools of the city afforded, and be
gan his business career as a cleric in a
hat store, a position which was held by
him for two years. Then for six yean,
he was bookkeeper of the Citizens' Sav
ing and Loan association of this city,
following that with two years in the
office of the Emplro Mpwer and Reaper
company, where he held a similar posi
tion. When he left the employ of the
latter company he formed a partner
ship with L. C. Miles, at the present
secretary of the Great "Western Cereal
company. They conducted a feed and
commission-house business for nine
years, under the firm name of Dick &.
As Auditor of. Summit county from
1887 to 1893, Gen. Dick first displayed his
marked ability as a servant of the peo
ple. It was while he occupied this office
that he created an enmity which lasts
to this day. Ohio C. Barber, president
of the Diamond Match company, is the
man who dislikes Dick, and It is prob
able that his opinion "will never be
changed. The plant of the Diamond
Match company was, in those days, lo
cated in this city, and In his position as
Auditor of the county, Dick Instituted
suits for back taxes against the com
pany. The efforts of an Inquisitor re
sulted in the Auditor learning that the
company owed back taxeB, and a suit
for something like $200,000 against the
company was Instituted. The suit
caused Mr. Barber to grow very bitter
against Dick, and, he has never forgiven
him. Not pnly "has he never forgiven
Dick, but he soon nfter transferred the,
home of the company to Chicago, and
removed his plant to Barberton, the
town which was founded by him. and
which has grown into a small city.
As chairman of the Summit county
executive committee, a position he oc
cupied for a number of years, Gen,
Dick displayed marked abilities as an
organizer and campaign manager
These qualities, together with capacity
for hard work, geniality, personal mag
netism and approachableness, havo
made him a marked success as chair
man of the State executive committee
and secretary of the State committee of
the Republican party. In 1892 Ge,n.
Dick was chosen to conduct the State
campaign, and although the party nar
rowly escaped defeat that fall, owing to
peculiar conditions which confronted
the country, bo pleased was Gov. Mc
Klnley with the exceptional talents ex
hibited by the new chairman that ho In
sisted upon his continuing at tho head
of the executive committee.
The Republican plurality of 81,000 In
1893, 137,000 In 1S91, and the large plu
ralities every year since, until 1902,
when Gov. Herrick was elected by over
100.000 and Senator Hanna was re
elected by the largest vote ever given a
United States Senator, with Dick still
at tho helm, give ample evidence to the
people of Ohio that Gov. McKlnley's
confidence had not been misplaced.
After tho campaign of 1893, at the an
nual banquet of the Garfield club, tho
famous Republican organization of the
old Nineteenth district, Capt. Burrows
of Palnesvllle, In a highly oulogistlo
speech, moved that Gen. Dick be made
an honorary member of the club for life
on account of the eminent service to
the party he had rendered, and the mo
tlon was carried unanimously.
In 1892 Gen. DIclc was chosen as one
of the delegates to the Republican na
tional convention at Minneapolis, and In
1896 he was again honored by being sb
lected as delegate to the national con
vention which nominated McKlnley for
President. In tho campaign of 196 he
had sole charge of the Western head
quarters of the national committee.
After the election of McKlnley to tho
Presidency he was made secretary of
the national committee of the party,
and served in that capacity until the
campaign of 1900, when he withdrew
from the office at the request of Presi
dent MoKlnloy. '
While Auditor of Summit county Gen.
Dick spent the little time he could spare
from his duties in reading law, and sev
eral years ago he was admitted to tho
bar of Ohio, having passed the exami
nation with a magna cum laudo mark,
On Juno 30, 18S1, Gen. Dick was united
In marriage with Miss Carrie M. Peter
son, daughter of the late Dr. J. H. Pe
tereorx of Akron, and to them seven
children have beon born, two of whom
aro dead. The others are: Carl, aged
16; James, aged 14; Luolus, aged 12;
Grace, aged 10; Dorothy, aged 7. Gen,
Dick la prominent In secret society af
fairs, being a Scottish Rlto Mason, a
member of the Knights of Pythias or
der, an Odd Fellow and a charter mem
ber of the Society of Santiago, of which
society ho is now the president and
serving his second term.
Gen. Dick, aside from politics, is gs
sontlally a military man, and his con
nection with military affairs dates from
1885, when ho was eleoted Captain of
company B, Eighth Ohio National
Guard, of Akron. Ho was choBen as
Major of tho regiment in 1SS8, was later
mado Lieutenant-Colonel, thon Colonel,
and at the present time Is Major-Gen-oral
of tho National Guard of the Stato.
It was with the Eighth Ohio, known aB
the "President's Own," from tho fond
ness for tho regiment evidenced by
President McKlnley, that Gen. Dick at
tained his greatest prominence as a mil
itary man. He went with his regiment
as Lieutenant-Colonel to Cuba at the
outbreak of tho Spanish-American war,
and it is noted as being tho only Ohio
regiment which reachod the firing lino
at tho alcgo. of Santiago.
Gen. Dick remained with tho regi
ment until ordered North by Gen.
Shafter with important dispatches for
1 .Washington emphasizing tho cwtUl
dangers in the form of diseases and pes- fl
tllencc which threatened the soldiers ll
about Santiago, and urging tho neces- ll
slty of a radical change of base. Tho lH
situation of the army at that time Was 831
most critical. Gen. Shafter had chosen IVI
Col. Roosevelt to make the trip. Bl
"I 'will go," said Roosevelt, "but I . 11
know a man who can perform tho taBk
better than I."
"Who is he?" ablced the General.
"Lleut.-Col. Dick of tho Eighth Ohio," BIH
was the reply. HH
Accordingly Col. Dick was sent for, WmaaW
and when he came the commanding ofil- Hl
cor of the American forces In Cuba or- BH
dered him to proceed forthwith to Waam
Washington. He started that samo - 11
day, but before he reached Washington fflmam
the famous "round robin" had set tho
whole nation aflame, and had brought iH
posthaste tho desired orders for trans- ,H
portatlon north. Col. Dick was also tho :H
bearer of other important documents.
among them being a map showing the ' ' 'wkwm
position of all the troops about Santl- JLM
ago sent by Gen. Shafter to President .vkatm
At Montauk Point Gon. Dick rejoined i'l
his regiment as It returned from Cuba, fil
and from that day he devoted his tlmo ll
and energy In making the men under t'l
him aa comfortable as possible. Worn
out by the terrible experience through ' I
which they had passed, and emaciated t'
by the effects of tho fever with -which i-JjH
nearly e'ery man in the regiment had pl
suffered, they wero In need of care. In ' ril
his work he was ably assisted by Mrs. tl
Dick, who remained at his side while- rjl
the regiment was at Montauk. vH
After the death of Congressman S. A ;H
Northway of the Nineteenth district 'fl
Gen. Dick was elected to the short and '
long terms, and has represented tho ll
district in an able manner ever since, . ll
being renominated and re-elected at ,
every succeeding election without oppo-
As a member of the Military Affairs 1
committee he conducted the Coeur
d'Alcne investigation in a manner
which reflected great oredlt upon both jH
himself and the constituents who elect- F'H
cd him. As chairman of the Militia
committee during the present session ho l r Nl
Introduced and secured the passage of j k IH
the Dick bill, which wiped away tho j 9 JiH
fossillsm of 100 years, which has envel- J J flH
oped some of tho regulations of tha T fH
army. 1 1. uH

As may be imagined, Gen. Dick has A! JH
had little time to develop into a man ot f JH
domestic tastes. His strenuous life as a j !H
leader of the Republican party in tho ' i H
State and Nation has kept him busy, '1
but even during the most bitter strug- l ll
gles he finds time occasionally to spend '1
a brief time at the pretty home he has t 'LM
erected In Akron, where his wife main- jH
tains a comfortable establishment and li'H
mingles in society. Gon. Dick Is, like j ,
President Roosevelt, a believer in the i!flH
strenuous, life. His children are as wild OH
and untamable as any of the Roosevelt 'H
youngsters, living out of doors when- rH
ever possible and mingling with the ) jH
other children of the neighborhood in IH
the most democratic manner possible to I
imagine. The fact that their father Is I
one of the big men of the party means. J ML-M
little to them, and they are as happy a H
and whole-souled a lot of youngsters aa. V Lm
