PAWN SHOPS RAIDED
BY ARMY OFFICERS
Large -Waonload of Uncle Sam's Property Found in Soak
and Promptly Taken Back to Fort Douglas to
the Chagrin of the Brokers
The appearance of a squad of armed
soldiers under tho command of Lieut.
Clark caused considerable cxoilemcnt
and mourning nmonp a number of
pawnbrokers and saloonmen of this
city yesterday afternoon. The aoldicra,
assisted by Sergt. HempeJ and two po
lice officers, made a raid on tho "hock
shops," and during the course of their
travels accumulated a largo wagonload
of Uncle Sam's property that had been
purchased from men stationed at Fort
Douglas. Tho Lieutenant did not give
value received for the property taken
from tho pawnbrokers, but solaced the
angry merchants by informing- them
that they wero fortunate to escape im
prisonment. In most Instances the
brokers and jraloonmcn delivered the
Government property without any ob
jection, but one liquor dealer on East
Second South street dfclared with much
emphnsiy thnt he would get out a war
rant for the army officer's arrest.
After reflecting the angry "barkcep"
decided that it would be mvwis to press
the matter further.
The raid began about 3 o'clock yes
terday afternoon, and the appearance
of tho armed soldiers soon collected
quite a crowd of citizens, who mani
fested much interest in the efforts ot
the boys in blue to regain' possession of
the stolen property.
In a pawnshop on Commercial street
which is a rendezvous for soldiers who
havo grjods to dlspooo of the officers
found property worth about $100. The
stock consisted of Government
blankets, boots, shoes, gloves, coats.
Govornment property la plainly
stamped, so the officers conducting the
search had little trouble In identifying
the gooda belonging to Uncle Sam.
Pawnshops and saloons were about
the only places vlwlted, although one or
two restaurants and cigar stores whero
soldiers are known to frequent were al
LIuL Clark, who conducted the
foraging expedition, came armed with
a lane hxw book, and woe prepared to
"show" any who doubted tho legality of
The United States laws provide that
any Government officer, civil or mili
tary, shall have tho power to seize any
property belonging to the Government,
no matter whero it shall be found.
Purchasing Government property
from soldiers Is a crlmo punishable by
imprisonment from one to-live jcars, or
bv a fine of not more than 55000 nor
less than 51000.
Most of the properly recovered yes
terday was pawned by members of the
Twelfth infantry, who left this city re
cently for service in the Philippines.

VICTIM OF POLYGAMY
READY TO SPEAK OUT
Another Young Salt Lake Woman Who Was
Inveigled Into the Celestial System of Mar
riage After the Manifesto Was Issued.
A story very similar to that of Mrs.
Mabel Barber Kennedy before the
Smoot Investigating committee Is re
lated by a Swedish woman now living
in Salt Lake. She has had her fill of
polygamy and has married a man who
does not indorse the doctrine of celes
tial marriage. She prefers that her
present name be withheld from publi
cation, but sho Is perfectly willing to
testify before a competent tribunal If
called upon to do so.
The polygamous marriage Into which
she wns Inveigled was performed in, the
open air on a hill near Durungo, Mexi
co, about one year after President
WoodrufC Issued the famous manifesto.
Previous to this time the young woman
had been employed In Salt Lake at the
home of a Mormon elder named Nielsen,
who had one wife. From childhood she
had been taught that plural wifehood
was tho most desirable state to which
woman could attain, and when her em
ployer urged her to become his second
helpmeet, she finally consented
Nielsen, she says, took her to El
Judge Dlchl of tho Police court docs not
think he Is being treated on the square In
tho matter of quarters. Ho has appealed
to the Council to help him maintain tho
dignity of his office by way- of a general
ronovatlon of tho courtroom and tlio In
stallation of somo decent furniture and
fixtures. Thero Is no placo In the town
that Is visited with such systematlo reg
ularity as tho City court and Judgo Dlehl
very properly holds that tho reputation
of Salt Lako City for sightliness as well
ns sanitation is very seriously Jeopardized
by tho present appearanco and llllhincss
of tho Police courtroom. Tho Council
should answer tho Judge's prayer. It Is
bad enough to compel that very excellent
gentleman to prosldo over a court in tho
dilapidated old city hall, but to Insist on
him to breatho the microbes from tho
anclont furniture and carpets Is rubbing
It In on tho court in a manner wholly out
of keeping with tho dignity of tho station.
It takes a long tlmo for "Dutch Char
lie" to collect what Is duo him. And if his
friends contlnuo to fight off tho sentence
of tho court thoro Is a likelihood that ho
will die from tho terrors of suspense.
In face of tho testimony of President
Smith It Is amusing to rood how tho Nows
used to lambast the Methodists for charg
ing that polygamy still exists lrt tlio Stato
of Utah. In August of last year tho
Methodists In conferoneo assembled do
clnred by resolution that "polygamy still
abounds," but the News on tho 18th of tho
mouth fairly burned the air with Its de
nials and wound the matter up by char
acterizing the charge a9 "a patent false
hood." So far as Is known Professor McClellan
will not bo ablo to prove his skill as an or
ganist In the International contest at the
World's fair. Those who recognize the
Salt Laker's talent will be disappointed If
ho does not havo a chanco at lhat prize,
but It Is sincerely hoped that If ho docs
go to St. Louis that he will not attempt
to duplicate tho numbors selected for tho
Davenport recital. They wero nerve
breakers. Superintendent Condle doubtlessly thinks
that tho weather man has a grudgo
against him. Ho no sooner gets tho
down-town streets in a presentable condi
tion that a snowstorm or an ungodly ruin
Is unloaded on him. And yot thero aro
several men in tho town who think tho
Superintendent of Streets has a pudding.
What a relief It would be to tho streets
of Salt Lake If tho hedge of telegraph and
telephone poles wero cut down and tlio
wires placed whero they should be In a
tunnel under tho surface. If this woro
dono Mayor Morris would not bo com
pelled to lay awake o' nights thinking of
tho possible accidents that might follow
tho running of street cars at so high a
rato of speed.
What a busy man President Smith must
be whon he Is at homo and wholly at him
self. He has told the Senate committee
that ho is the president of so many cor
porations that ho Is unablo to remember
all o their names. .
With puro air from tho mountnlns and
tho health-restoring breezes from tho
Great Salt lako, together with tho finest
water from tho snow-fed streams that
thunder through tho neighboring canyons,
why shouldn't Salt Lako City rightfully
bo heralded as tho greatest health resort
In tho country?
Tho Council should bo very cautious
about granting privileges to business con
cerns to exhibit their wares on tho pave
ments. It Is difficult to conceive a thing
raoro unsightly In a city than a line-up
of machinery, vehicles or tho liko on the
sidewalks. It will do very well for a vil
lage, but not for a bustling city nnd tho
Council should mako it a rulo to turn
down all petitions asking for the use of
tho sidewalks and tho streets for tho ex
hibition of raorchandlso.
According to tho report of tho Food In
spector there was something doing in that
department last year. Thoro wcro 11,453
visits of tho Inspector, or an avcrago of
ono visit every fifteen minutes during the
avcrago working day. What a rustler this
official would mako for an afternoon
newspaper. Ho could cover tho whole
town and havo plenty of tlmo to throw
at the birds.
Matches made on tho high ccas arc not
made on earth' Cortalnly not. Hair
splitting is not splitting hair, cither.
It is said that tho Japs havo no swear
words in thoir lexicon. In this case thco
aro Incapable of becoming as famous ns
several American soldiers that wo havo
heard about. "What an unsatisfactory
thing it must be to tho Jap to have somo
follow como along and biff him on tho
cav and run and then bo unablo to resort
to a fow choice bits of profanity
The Salt Lako boy who is reported to bo
full of well-developed bacteria was doubt
lessly dieted on prunes.
A new, ;wardeA of..J,ha -Stato prjjjon, will
Paso, Tex., where they were Joined by
four other couples. Tho entire party
crossed the river to Mexican territory
nnd passed the night at a hoted in Dtf
rango. Early the following morning
they were led by an old man claiming
to be a possessor of the keys of the "re
stored gospel" to a hill outside the city.
Stones were collected and an altar was
erected besides which the men and wo
men knelt in prayer. They then went
through a marriage ceremony.
Elder Nielsen brought his bride baclc
to Salt Lake and kept her here until
his business affairs made it necessary
for him to remove to Old Mexico. He
took both wives with him. On their
arrival there. Nielsen began to neglect
his plural wife and soon ceased to pro
vide her with the common necessaries
of life. "When a child was born sho
and the Infant were compelled to rely
upon strangers for food nnd care. Two
years of misery weakened the woman's
faith to such an extent that she left
her husband and returned to this city
where she met the man who is now her
be solccted by tho Board of Corrections
today. It Is hardly fair to say that the
activity of some of tho prominent men of
Salt Lake City, in attempting to bring
about tho selection of one of tho appli
cants. Is a personal matter with them.
But tho now warden may havo many fa
miliar faces to feed beforo a new al
manac Is in demand
The Council has granted Signor some
body a llccnso to exhibit his fake bull
fight in Salt Lake City. Two or three
members of tho Council, Mr. Hartenstcln
hi particular, did not favor tho petition
hecauso it was very apparent that a bull
fight, whero the animal Is uninjured and
tho toreador Is unarmed, must bo more of
a fake than an exhibition of merit.
OR, STEWART SAYS
JACKSON IS OUT
Changes the Combination, on tho
Health Offico Vault and Invites
Him to Keep Away.
C. M. Jackson has been locked out of
the Health department by Health Com
missioner Stewart. He hns entered a
protest against the action of Dr. Stew
art and has been advised to report for
duly daily In order to pave the way for
a suit for possession that it 1e said ho
will soon file.
The thing that brought the clerkship
to the front of the stage again was the
action of Dr. Steward in changing the
combination of tho safe so that Jackson
could not secure access to' tho books
and documents belonging to the de
partment. Dr. Stewart also addressed
Jackson the following note:
Dear Sir: Until you aro confirmed by the
Council you can have no further access to
my office or tho buslnen thorcof.
M. R. STEWART, M. D.,
This note provoked a. reply from the
Mayor's appointee as follows:
M. R. Stewart, M. D., Health Commis
sioner Dear Sir. This is to notify yon that
In pursuance of an appointment by tho
Mayor of Salt Lake City, dated March S.
1201. 1 havo prepared to perform service
ns clerk of the Bond of Health and de
mand that I bo permitted without interfer
ence from any ono to perform the duties
of that positions. Respectfully.
C. M. JACKSON.
Clerk of tho Board of Health of Salt Lako
Health Commissioner Stewart notified
Jackson in person that since the Coun
cil nnd repeatedly declined to recognize
him as an official and In view of the
fact that the Council has final author
ity in such matters, he felt that he
could not with propriety permit Jack
son to have further access to the books
and papers of the Health department.
Jackson is said to have been advised
by City Attorney Dey to continue to re
port for duty until tho case Is disposed
of by a decision from the courts.
