jT J rf Half-lieavtcd enforcement of
' j 4- the ordinances.
I r" Inadequate facilities for pun- -f
H- ishment of juvenile criminals.
Hi j These are a few of the reasons given
Hj j'.. at the principals' meeting yestorday for
Hj . the prevaleney of hoodlumlsm and ju-
H' ) vonilo criminality in Salt Lake City.
, There was a difference of opinion
among those present as to the proper
remedy of conditions, but there was
1.1 f unanimous sentiment on the one point
Ij that something must be done. Trin
1 cipal Hallock maintained that the only
remedy lies In rigid enforcement of the
Jaws, while Capt. Wood of the Salva
i tlon Army contended that a parental
i school was necessary to meet the sltu-
, 31 ore Stringent Laws.
Principal Halioek denounced aB far-
, ' cial the passing of ordinances by the
" City Council that are not enforced. The
'' administration, 'he said, should not play
to the galleries in passing laws which.
they did not intend to have enforced.
I He argued in favor of more stringent
' . Inws that would permit invasion of the
H' 1 homes and guardianship of parents
l among the lower classes. Thero is a
Hl class of boys, he said, who literally
,i conduct schools of crime on the.streets,
. (J nnd they should be given the choice of
f' attending the public schools or going to
the reform school. He also talked on
Hio prevaleney of the tobacco and ll-
H) j" I quor habits among the hoodlum elo-
ment, and said that nearly all of them
H -were ruined physically before attaining
wk No Place for Boys.
I If Capt. Wood said there was no place
' l put D0's Tvnen placed under arrest
' I for the commission of minor offenses
, t j and there being no adequate punish-
t i ment for the youthful offended, he jus-
...ft tilled the Police department in not ad-
W herlng to a rigid enforcement of the
city ordinances. Mr. Wood suid that
he had been In all of the larger cities
I of the West and hod given much study
( f to the question.
"Juvenile criminality is lhore excos-
,' .sive in Salt Lake than In any place I
Hj ' know of," he aiid, "and if tiiere is any
H place in. this broad country where a
. parental school Is needed it .is in Salt
Juries to Blame.
City Superintendent of Schools D. IT.
Chrlstensen, who presided at the meet
Hl lng, Eaid that the establishment of .a
H' parental school w;is out of the question
f'l at the present time for financial rea-
H sons. He attributed much of the crim-
' Inallty to the "half-hearted enfox'ce-
t ment of tlie laws," and said that cases
H arc tried where' thero is no doubt in
Hl the minds of any one as to the guilt of
the defendants and yet they Jurys re
turn verdicts of not guilty. This, he
, said, naturally arouses a contempt for
the laws, many of which are not en
forced at all. As an illustration he
Hl cited the manner in which minors are
Hj i. permitted to enter saloons, the non
H I j r enforcement of the curfew, bicycle and
' f. I driving ordinances. Certain of these
Hu ; ordinances, he said, were consciously
violated nearly every hour of the day.
Boys in the Prize King-.
i The Superintendent said his attention
H , Tiad been brought to the hardly con
. templatable fact that two boys, aged 7
and 0 years respectively, were placed
H , in the prize fighting ring and boxed bc-
fore the same audience where immedl
. .1 ately after a genuine fight was pulled
off. He spoke of the vicious literature
1 4 pei-uscd by boys and the Inspiration
they received for committing crimes,
j 5 . He du-elt upon the Indifferent home
H j" jrovernment in many homes, and said
' that tho omiromncnt of the State In
' rv duytrial school was far superior to that
y i of Innumerable homes In this city.

RIGHT OF WAY
SYSTEM A NUISANCE
"Salt Lake City's street railway sys
tem must be a little Aveak on its right-of-way
regulations." said a well-known
business man yesterday. "It is a com
mon thing for conductors to get into
squabbles over the right-of-way for
their cars, but I encountered the limit
yesterday morning, when a carload of
men coming down-town to their work
or business on the Ninth East street
line, were delayed a half-hour by a
conductor with a 'grouch,' and thoy
might have been there yet had some
of them not threatened to mob the man
who was causing tho delay. A derailed
tear was blocking one of the tracks
down near HIevcnth South, so that only
one line could be used, and when cars
met there the one going out had to
back into a switch. The car I was on
met another car the conductor of which
refused to back up. He declared tha't
ho had the right of way and ho
wouldn't go back for anybody. His
motorman stood by him, and it looked
for a time as though that line would
be held up for the day. Finally sev
eral business men got extremely tired
of the senseless delay and, going to
the street-car men In a body, politely
told them that they could cither get on
their cars and do business or take the
roundest drubbing they had ever had.
They had paid their fares, the busi
ness men said, it was essential that
they reach their destinations ns quickly
as possible, and they wouldn't stand
for any further nonsense. The street
car men made a few feints at talking
back, but the cars moved."

and Sewer Connection.
In accordance with tho communication
from the Commercial club tho engineering
committee of the City Council last night
recommended that the City Recorder bo
instructed to publish notico of intention
to pave tiio sidewalks in the enstern dis
trict. The district oxtends from the west
side of Second East to the east side of
Seventh East and from the south line of
South Templo to tho center line of Fourth
South street. The recommendation pro
vides that all of the streets within tho
district be paved with six-foot sidewalks.
J. E. Dooly, Spencer CIaw3on and W. J.
Hallorun, tho street committeo of the
Commercial club, appeared before the
sewer" committeo in Hie interest of the
communication of the club on the enforce
ment of tho sewer ordinance. They main
tained that tho City Cornell has tho af
firmative in making sewer extensions and
should not wait for petitions from tho cltl
r.ens in ordering public Improvements.
After considerable discussion of tho ques
tion, it was decided to refer th& wholo
matter to tho city attorney and city en
gineer to formulate a plan for enforcing
sewor connections In tho city.
Tho committee, on municipal laws iook
up tho petition of the City Street Improve
ment company asking tho $1750, the amount

His collapso occurred-at 11:50 o'clock,
and the doctor came fifteen minutes
later. At 12 o'clock Ofllcer Carlson was

TO ANOTHER FAIR
In commemoration of the famous ex
pedition and exploration trip of Lewis
and Clark, a national exposition will be
held ut Portland, Or., from June 1st to
October 15, 1905. The National Govern
ment bos set aside several million dol
lars for this exposition, while Oregon
and. many other States have voted large
sums for proper representation. The
exposition will be on a large scale, over
iOO acres of land and water being util
ized in the undertaking. The expedi
tion of Lewis and Clark Is the most
Important in the history of the United
Stales. In 1S04, under the dl-ctlon of
President Jefferson, Lewis and Clari:
started from St. Louis, their objective
point being the mouth of the Colum
bia river. They ascended the Missouri
river from the point of its Junction with
the Mississippi to its source, crossed the
Rocky mountains, struck the Snake
river where Lowiston now Is, followed
thut river to its junction with the Co
lumbia and descended the Columbia to
Its mouth. Setting out on their return
In March, 1S0C, they reached SU Louis
late In the fall, nftor two and one-half
years of exploration and adventure, thla
being reflected in the Lewis and Clark
exposition next year.

Another meeting of the Utah lake Im- W

phases of tho great Irrigation propo
sition, was held yesterday in the Stato 1 .

F. S. Pvlchards and State Engineer Do- L

on various details of the proposed S
agreement between tho water-users and
the Government, and their conclusions m
will bo presented to the general com- W
mlttee nt its meeting- to be held today iff
in the oflco of President Angus AI. f
"I can see absolutely nothing: in the
way of tho Utah lake project going I
through," said Attorney Richards, at k
tho close of yesterday's conference. !
"While it would he desirable for all
the companies to beunlted in support
of the project, it Is by no means essen- i
tlal. Tho proposed work is of so much
lraportanco to the public and so far
reaching In the results promised that
It would be ridiculous to permit a few .
persons, out of the thousands inter- j
ested, to tliwoxt the enterprise. Not
only are there no legal phase's that
could stop the work, but there is even
none that could present serious embar
rassmont. The committee is now work
ing on the general principles of n plan
for organization and operation, and it
anticipates no difficulty In formulating
a plan that will bo acceptable to tha j
"Personally, I do not regard as final
the action of the South Jordan Canal
company in refusing to co-operate in
the enterprise. Tho same difficulty was
encountered when the installing of the
pumping plant at Utah lake was pro
posed, except that two companies In
stead of one refused to come in. Had
tho others stopped and waited for theso
to co-operate with them, tho work ;
would never have been done. But it
was done and both of tho dissenting
companies finally came In. 4 '
"The meetings of the South Jordan 1
company that have been held to take I
action on the Utah lake project have l
been informal at best. I know of one j
man who holds S50 shares of stock in
the company who was not present at '
any of the meetings, while others who
own no stock at all wero present and
voted against the project. Then there
are many who do not yet understand i
tho Government's proposition. I talked
with ono man who objected to It be
cause, as he claimed, Engineer Kelsoy
had ostimated that the same work could I
be done for 5200.000, while the Govern- 1
ment is charging the water-users 5500,- I
000. Ho simply did not understand that fl
Engineer Kelsey had figured on lower- i
lng Utah lake's outlet eighteen Inches. '
while the Government's project in-
eludes, besides doubling the conserving . j
efficiency of Utah Jake, the lowering of JJt
Its outlet ten feet, so that all of the rJ
water it contains may be taken out arl r
used. If necessary. 1
'I have no doubt that the South Joi- '.
dtui company will finally be In line for ,1
the great improvement, but, even if it 'I
11? not, no difficulty is in the way of ill
proceeding. Whatever rights the com- jf
pany has must, of course, be recognized; l
but tho settlement will be on the basis i
of actual, not imaginary, rights. Jus- 1
tlce will bo done to all concerned, and i
the success of the project is reasonably ' 1
assured." ' " j
