MRS. FRANZ KOMPE
STANDS BY HER GUNS
Since Mrs. Franz Kompe made the
aflldavit which waa published In The
Tribune Sunday, no ono could be more
solicitous for her wehre than her Mor
mon "friends." So far Is she from
denying that she made the allldavlt, or
any part of It, that she has refused all
the inducements that have been offered
her to sign a retraction. The following
Is a translation of a letter which was
found pushed under the door of the,
house where she lives:
"March 22, '01.
"Worthy Sister: Would you be so
kind as to come and see me tomorrow,
tho 23rd, at the Z. C. M. 1.7 I have
something important to say to you that
will be to your advantage. I was at
your house tonight, but unfortunately
you were not at home. If you would
be so good as to come fairly early, It
will oblige me very much. Your so
licitous friend, WM S. OWEN."
Both William Owen and one Frank
W. Penrose were at her house on- Mon
day morning, ami requested her to re
tract and deny tho truth of her state
ment. The reason for their wishing
this, as they said to her, Is that, al
though under ordinary ciroumstancew
no imch statement of hoi's could hurt
the Mormon church, coining at the time
of tho Smoot inquiry, it might prove
The man Konrad Walz of Itexburg,
Ida., who is mentioned as having wit
nessed the statement, which she is
claimed tohave signed, denying her
former aflldavit, offered her a piece of
land and a cow at his home In Idnhor
if she would sign tho statement. She
pays that ever since Monday her house
has been watched at night, and that
threats were made which have made
her afraid to live there. She is at pres
ent living at a friend's house. She em
phatically denies having retracted her
aflldavit, or of liaving any intention of

HAMILTON HAS FITS
THAT WERE MISFITS
Ja-nea Hamilton had what he solemnly
declared to bo a fit on tho floor of tho
pollco station lost evening. Tho desk
sergeant, who is protty well up on fits,
denounces Hamilton's fit as bosus In
other words, calls it a counterfit.
Hamilton, who is a cook, was arrested
by Officer Ed Palmer at tho Mission on
Commercial street. Ho had been drink
ing and refused to leave tho Mission oven
when bluntly Informed that he had out
stayed his welcome. On his arrivcl at tho
polico station he began to wave his arms
and toll of his abnormal appetite for po
licemen on the half-shell.
In the midst: of his harangue he lay
down on tho floor and rolled over and
over, producing a poor imitation of a
death rattle In his throat Palmer, realiz
ing that desporato cases rcquiro desperate
remedies, ran to tho tap and got a cup of
wuter. Ho awaited his chance, and when
Hamilton was face up In ono of. his peri
odical revolutions, spilled a few drops of
the water Into his mouth.
Either tho shock to his nervous system
or the conviction that no other stimulant
would bo forthcoming restored Hamilton
to consciousness. Ho got on his feet.
Looking the desk sergeant in the face ho
"That wns a fit."
"1 am glad you told mo," replied tho
sergeant, "I thought It was a misfit"
Hamilton will play a return engagement
beforo Judge Diehl today.

'Twould Spoil Tills Story to Tell It in
To use an eighteenth century phrase,
this Is an "o'er true tale." Having hap
pened In a small Virginia town In the
winter of 1002, It Is a story very much
of the present. Up to a short time ago
Mrs. John E. Harmon of Melfa Station,
Va., had no personal knowledge of tho
rare curative properties of Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy. "Last January,"
she says, "my baby took a dreadful cold
and at one time I feared she would have
pneumonia, but one of my neighbors
told me how this remedy had cured her
little boy and I began giving it to my
baby at once and it soon cured her. I
heartily thank the manufacturers of
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy for plac
ing so great a cure within my reach. 1,
cannot recommend It too highly or say
too much In its favor. I hope all who
read this will try it and be convinced
as I was," AU dru&glfits. '

JOHN HELD LOSES
SHOW CASE AND ALL
Hold's store at W Main street is a sta
tionery store, but this caunot bo said of
tho showcase containing 550 worth of
goods which stood on tho sidewalk outsldo
tho door. If the ptrson or persons who
walked off with the case last ovening will
send their cards to headquarters they will
confer a great favor on tho Chief of Po
lice and Keep tho hair of the detectives
from turning prematurely gray.
There Is not much to tho story. Tho
showcase, a small affair, some eighteen
lushes wldo and two feet long, occupied
a pedestal on the sidewalk. It contained a
number of fancy leather purses, leather
covered flasks, fancy leather card cases
ana similar articles. s ,
At 0 o'clock last night when the pro
prietor of the store, John Held, began to
close up, he went out for the showcase.
He did not see It for tho very good reason
that It was not there. No one In thu vi
cinity had observed any man or men car
rying a showcase up or down the street.
Mr. Held reported the Io.hs to tho police.
Every officer made a special effort to
trace the case, but there arc no clues.
Later in tho night Officer Randolph
found tho empty ahowcaso In an alloy
across tho utreor.

"I smoked tho hop in Sam Toooy'a
And this lady did tho same.
For wo Hko tho smoll of opium well,
And cook the pill with glee,
To roll on the bowl of tho comforting pipo
That grows on tho bamboo tree."
"I hit the plpo on last Sunday night,"
Said tho boy whoso naino was Hay,
"When I went again, on Monday, then
Tho Chinaman said, 'Go away!'
But I like the smell of tho opium well,
I gavo hlrn a dollar, and ho
Left ua alone with tho comforting pipo
That grows on tho bamboo tree."
Then Sam Tooey said, la his pagan
"I no llvoo thoro do I;
Tho honorablo ghost that used it most,
A mouth, ago ho die.
Thoy that like to smell tho opium well
I never before did see.
Nor give thorn a whiff of the comforting
Thnt grows on tho' bamboo tree."
Officer Johnson raised up his hand
And these aro the things ho sworo:
"I waited two hours; this son of the
Camo In tho room at four.
Thoro aro somo locks on tho small box
To which Tooey had tho key.
In that box thoy keep tho comforting plpo
That grows on tho bamboo tree."
"Now. Tooey, stand up,-' hla Honor then

I think It best that you nhould rent
For throo times flftv days.

Council has disposed of tho matter defi

Illinois Republic-ins aro having ono of
tho most exciting times in tho history' of
tho Stato this year in their preliminary
campaign. There aro so many would-be-statcsmen
with well developed ambitions
that tho contest for the organization and i
for nominations has becomo something I

In any senso figuring on tho Senate In
the event Reed Smoot Is unseated, but so
many stories are developed associating
tho Governor's namo with the Scnatorshlp
that there Is now not a few local Repub
licans who aro bold enough to say that
tho Governor Is not only a candldato hut
that ho is pretty sure of going to Wash
ington as Senator Smoofs successor
should Congress unseat tho latter.
Utah Democrats have resolved on a
"waiting game" again this year. Thoy
will not make nominations until the Re

oven gone so far as to fix tho date of
their State convention to select delegates
to the Democratic National convention
April 9th, the dny following the dato of
tho Republican Stato convention.
Congress got after Bristow with such
vigor and earnestness, following his ro
port reflecting on many prominent mem
bers of tho House, that he declared that
lie had nothing to do with the offensive
.part of that report. But now the chief
of tho salarv and nllowanco division of
the postofflco department has told tho
committee that tho figures that offended
tho Congressmen wcro supplied by his di
vision on the request of tnn fourth assist
ant. Jt looks as though Bristow were not
only without the courage to stand by hln
own work, but that ho is open to the
chargo of being a common liar as well.
William Randolph Hearst is not depend

and Ills personal wealth to induce the
people to givo him a twirl at the Presi

greatest of the poets Into his campaign.
His last letter to. tho faithful contains
a poetic quotation that leads one to won
der what Is to come next in tho order
of tho 'Now Yorker's persuasive "Influ

people that clever poetical quotations are
equivalent to statesmanship, he may yet
land tho nomination. But a poem of
merit is too deep for tho average Demo

Thero Is a story out that neither Sen
ator Smoot nor Congressman Howell will
bo candidates for delegate to tho Chicago
convention. Former Congressman Suth
erland nnd his friends, It Is reported, aro
planning to go to Chicago and It Is said
that an organization is ' being effected
throughout tho state to bring about this
Thero is still somo talk, but by no
means an organized effort so far as the
surfaca would Indicate, to send a strictly
Gentile delegation to 'both of the Nation
al conventions. Somo aro saying that
such a step Is contemplated as a means
to forco on the two great parties tho
polygamy Issue. It Is held that the pre
sentation of the question at tho conven
tion of the leading parties will assist In
advertising the local conditions and that
tho result will be to secure a plank in
each of the National platforms pledging
Congress to take steps toward stamping
out polygamous tendencies and practices.
Tho Herald, In its effort to givo the new
Health Commissioner a public endorse
ment, has gono out of its way to discredit
tho administration of the ofllce under Dr.
Stewart It charges that thero was too
much-politics In tho administration of tho
retiring Health Commissioner. This Is
such a cheap way of attacking an official
that the Herald, It would bo expected,
would be abovo It Tho new Commis
sioner comes Into tho offlco as a result
of a pernicious partisan policy and Is fet
tered at tho outstart with party condi
tions and possibly with partisan pledges.
At any rato. he Is tho creature, officially,
of an undignified political system, and he
may be, and no doubt Is. expected to
throw tho weight of his official Influence
to thoso who aro members of his party
' Dr. Stownrt Is a Republican and ono of
Iho best of Republicans as well. It was
quite natural, therefore, that while In
ofrtco that ho rewarded his party frionds
ho long as thoy were efficient In their
work. But because he did this it is un
kind, to say the leastto criticise his ad
ministration. Ho was a good official.
It Is sincerely hoped that Dr. Stewart's
successor may prove as good an officer as
Col. Wattorson of Kentucky, sah, bo
gad, seems to bo sour on tho whole po
litical world. In a recent issuo of his
newspaper ho likens several prominent
public men to grafters, and ho says that
tho pcoplo "are defeated by over-active,
ever-scheming and sometimes very art
ful demagogues, somo for ambition and
others for graft buc all for self Mr.
Bryan pulls the moral string. Mr. Hearst
the money string, Mr. Cleveland the an
gelic string, Mr. Roosovelt tho string of
opportunity and power. In one way and
another each has hlsMrlcks of trade, each
has ills ax to grind. Thoy aro politicians
and office-seekers, or officeholders, out
for all that may be In sight"
Mr. Watterson says furlhor on this sub
ject: "One would think thorn, and their
plans and schemes and methods, suffici
ently transparent to deceive nobody. Mr.
Bryan, with his absurd vot complacent
claims, resting one foot on tho Holv Bi
ble, tho other on Mr. Hearst's barrel; Mr.
Cleveland, with his mugwump retlnuo,
each with a pot of ink and incense, and a
halo; Mr. Roosevelt, with Quav on his
right hand. Addicks on his left liand, and
Tom Piatt upon his lap, singing for dear
life songs of Heavenly gleet"
If tho editor of the Courier-Journal were
taken seriously any more the people would
not look upon his diatribes In the same
humorous spirit that thoy now do. They
know that Mr. Watterson is in dead ear
nest but thoy remember that he has been
in the harness a long time tnd has come
to be a common Hcold, But they find his
ravings rhetorical if not pootic at times.
THERE Is something rofroslmig In the
manner in which Police Cpurt Judgo
Diehl dishes out justice to the scores
of men and women who come under
his eyo these afternoons, but If ono
has a desire to find a place whero thero
are up-lo-dato sanitary conditions, for
goodness sake pass up the Police court.
No wonder tho affable Judgo macio an
appeal to the Council several weeks ago
for a general renovation of tho place and
for somo decent furniture and fixtures.
The place Is visited by a motley crowd
very afternoon, and regardless of tho
Conspicuous signs warning tho public to
"Don't Spit On tho Floor," and the pres
ence of a number of hluecoated and brass

From the trend of affairs In the City
Pollco court, Judgo Diehl seems to bo dis
posed to givo ilrst offenders nothing
harsher thanta bit of his mind. Ho turns
many a "first drunk" loose. But when
tho old offenders stand before him and do
not make a good impression on "hizzonor"
with somo frank bearing or a witty sally,
the deuce la to play.
The Judgo Is a boyish-looking officer.
Ho looks very much like our artist has
attempted to have the people believe. He
does not produce tho "Jug of evidence"
except on special occasions. Tho especial
occasions aro when thoro Is a trial "in
chambers." And all such hearings arc
"friendly affairs' to determine certain
"points" of the law
Tho Judgo is all right If It were not

The statement that has been recently
made by Tabernacle ushers, to the effect
that when citizens who aro not church
men were admitted to tho Temple many
years ago there were many acts of van
dalism, has created much comment here.
No ono seems to remember that there
was ever any complaint raado unlll re
cently. It is claimed that on this .'occasion a
beautiful mirror was greatly damaged by
someone who must havo cut it with a dia
mond. Also that the beautiful carpets
were soiled by tobacco spit, and that cost
ly curtains wero cut and pieces of the
furnlturo wcro chipped oft for souvenirs.
Now there Is a repeated claim that non
Mormons aro donied admission to tho
Temple becauso of tho acts of "vnndal
; Ism" alleged to have been committed on
' the occasion of the visit of the citizens.
In the language of ono of the ushers.
'You will see that good people are barred
out becauso of the acts of the bad."
I was told a story of a newspaper pub
lisher who desired thnt his writers avoid
all possibilities of involving tho paper In

that tho word "alleged" bo. worked Into

were possible. Following this instruction
a young reporter was sent to report the

one of his Items:
"Georgo AS'. Jones, an alleged physician
of Bakorsllold. accompanied by his alleged
wife, is stopping at tho Grand, alleged to

TESTING THE SCALES

uno tho impression was convoyed that the IH
patrons of our mill had had" occasion to
complain in relation to our weights. This. IH
however. Is not the case. We have in
operation complete sets of new Fairbanks
scales at our works, which aro doing vcrv HH
fine work, but it is our custom' to send

ardlzo all our scales twice every year. IWi
Tho fact that settlements aro mado on HTiJ

this method of standardizing twice a year. vfl
