HOW BOYS LEARN
TO BE REAL HOLDUPS
According to a confession secured yes
terday afternoon by Patrolman Carlson,
tho hold-up of Miss Edna Ellison on Sat
urday night was tho result of a deep-laid
conspiracy botweon Ray Wright, aged 21,
and Arthur Rocco, aged 22. Both boys
havo been ambitious to shino as knights of
the road, and, about .a week ago they de
termined to enter upon that profession.
"Don't try to hold up any men." was
Wright's advice to Rocco. "Stop tho wo
men." Ofllcer Carlson called on Wright yester
day nf terncon and questioned him so close
ly that tho boy broke down and confessed
everything Ho said:
"Rocco and I started out Saturday night
for the purposo of holding 3omo one up.
Wo walked around tho streets for a while
and went twice to Margetts's browerj'f
where we got 10 cents' worth of beer each
time. Wo were at the corner of West
Templo and First North, when wo saw tho
woman coming. I told Rocco to go out
and hold her up and I would wait for him.
He was afraid to go, so I left him at tho
corner nnd went to meet tho woman. 1
told her to throw up her hands and she
did. 'Whero is your purse?' I said. Sl e
said sho did not have any. but she held
something in her hand that looked like a
urse. 'I?t me feel In your hand,' I said.
I felt In her hand, but all she had was a
pair of gloves. So I left her and went
back to where Roccowas walling for me."
Wright claimed to the ofllcer that Rocco
had been chasing and frightening women
In the southern part of the cltv.
Both boys will be arraigned today on tho
charge of highway robbery. Itocco Is

Chairman Frank Cannon has attempted
to allay the feeling against Hearst In Utah
and to discredit the reports of tho opposi

that it Is tho Intention of the leading Dem

In connection with this discussion and

from tho New York World will bo read
1. Tho anti-trust law was framed by a
Republican, was passed by. a Republican
'v - i :
llouso and a Republican Senate, was
signed by a Republican President,
- The law rcmalnud a dead letter on tho
statute books during tho entire second
cran of Crover Cleveland, a Democratic
f President. Through thoso four years ot
i Democratic administration all appeals and
all efforts of tho World to have the law
. enforced were mot with sneers, Jeers nnd
. open contempt from a Democratic Atlor
. ney-General, Richard Olney. who pretend
. cd that the law was unconstitutional, and
. who would do nothing toward prosecuting
- violators ot it.
3. Tho first effort to enforco the law
- was made by Theodore Roosovolt, a Ru-
publican President. Tho first Attomey-
General to vigorously prosecute offenders
and to test tho law was a Republican At-
tornoy-Genoral. Philander C. Knox.

which thore Is no anneal, upholding the

Is a Republican.

Illinois, Mr. Justice While of Louisiana
and Mr. Justice Peckham of New York.
All these distinguished Democrats not only
voted against the constllutlonulitv of tho

seem probable that the Democrats can

PARK CITY BRANCH
NOT A SIDE-TRACK
Tho County Commissioners yesterday
passed a resolution of Mr. Wilson In
structing the clerk to notify tho Slate
Board of Equalization that tho portion of
tho Park City branch of the Rio Grando
Western railroad which has assessed as
sldo track must be assessed as main lino.
It means a difference of $-165.90 to the pub
lic funds whether tho piece of track In
question Is classed as sido track or main
line. Tho plcco of the line which has for
tho past two years been listed as switch
or sldo track is about three and a fourth
miles In length. It was asssessed as main
lino in 1901, but for somo reason was
classed as sldo track In 1902 and 1903.
Tho matter of revoking tho liquor li
cense of A. Millard, Thirteenth South and
Stato streets, was discussed, and It was
decided to contlnuo the affair until next
Monday. Many protests havo boon mado
to the commissioners about the place of
Millard, and ho will bo compelled to show
cause next Monday why his llccnso should
not be rovoked.
The board confirmed the appolntmonts
of Joseph L. MaoKnlght and Albert S.
Reiser, mado by County Treasurer Car
ols, to do extra work In tho Treasurer's
office. Mr. Carbls informed the board
that J. N. Rasmusscn was no longer an
employee of tho office.

THERE Is a prevailing orfinlon that !
non-Mormons aro never allowed,
and havo never been permitted, to
enter the Temple Indeed, soaic
contend that no ono mny enter that
famous building but a dignitary of tho
church. 'This Ib denied by one of the Mor
mon ushers who pilots visitors through tho
Tabernncle. Ho claims that on ono Occa
sion tho doors of the Temple wero thrown
open to any non-Mormon who might dcslro
to enter and that the crowd that presented
Itself for admittance was so great and
somo of Its members were so unruly that
a second such Invitation wan never Issued.
Many disgraceful acts of vandalism are
said to havo been practiced on that occa
sion. I am told that any Mormon In good fel
