i ' ' and citizens, died at S:10 o'clock yester-
I'i 1 day morning at his home. 111 Brlgham
1 street, after a brief illness of perfora
tion of the stomach. Mr. Sharp was
i i taken suddenly ill a week ago when
visiting his son at Rexburg. Ida. His
( , indisposition was ut first considered not
' ( . ' i serious, but ns lie rapidly grew
j , -worse he was brought to his home in
j tills city, and from the time of hia ar-
i rival the family physician could give
I rj 1 no hope for his recovery. He sank

J- it ' ' Long and Active life.
' 1 1 James Sharp was born November 18,
I' 1S43, at Falkirk, Stirlingshire, Scotland,
!, 1 ,! coming to America with his parents in
i '''i 18-18, his father having been the late
I ' j ; ISIshop John Sharp, who was laiown
1 during the late yoar of his life as the
i ' railroad king of Utah. The Sharps came
! , to Utah only two years after their ar-
' ji rival Jn America.
' j When a boy of only IS ycarH of age
I Jamea Sharp mado u trip to the Ml-
sour! river In the interest of immlgra-
(' i ' j Hon for Utah. In 1862 he was called
' ' iby President Lincoln to join the cele-
' brated military expedition under tho
! I i 1 command of Lot Smith, which nccom-
. ! ' plished a great deal In the pacification
, of tho Indians in the territory from
! ( i Port Brldger to the headwaters of the'
I Snake river. "When quite a young man
( 1 lie was associated with his father in
', the building o the Utah Central, Utah
I ; ' Southern and Utah Southern Extension
!' railroads, and upon the. demise of his
I father the son succeeded him as a mem-
, j ibc-r of the board of directors of the
1 Union Pacific railroad. Among other
,! institutions in which Mr. Sharp became
I . associated as a director or other ofllcer
I !l 1 are tho Deseret National bank, the
I r 'W Deseret Savlngy bank, Clark, Eldrcdge
1 - S: Co., the Cunnington company,
1 i Sharp Grocery and Supply company,
j 'I I , Rexburg, Ida., president; Oregon Lum-
1 . ' i , tt)er company, vice-president; ( Sharp-
1 ( 1 Jensen Livestock company, president;
j, i First National bank of Ogden, the Og-
II1 ,en Savings bank and the Blackfoot
i . 1 ; 'j Stock company. In all but the last
kti' j, three institutions named his official con-
n )' i I'W uoctioji with which was recently ter-
II 'Vijii! mlnated, he held the positions named
I; j at the time of his death.
I' j';'1 Helped Make tho Laws.
I' 1 ' 1 Mr. Sharp was elected to the Legis-
)' I j'j hilure from Salt Lake county In 1S7S,
j if, .-iftorward serving several terms in both
( ji branches of that body. He was elected
. , Speaker of the lower housoln 1884. He
I ?' was Mayor of Salt Lake from 18S1 to
('I, j m and has been a member of the
I i) ' ."board of regents of the Slate- University
l Ati for many years, having been presi-
, )y, dent of the board at the time of
' V, I,', his death. lie was also a member of
I' I ,) I' the board of education of the Mor-
l mon church, in which he was quite a
' . prominent worker.
1 I, lj The murder in 1901 of James P.. Haj
1 I'll.'i ,, son-in-law of Mr. Sharp, undoubtedly
i i I lil; affected in a marked degree the last
' 'I !i ' years of Mr. Sharp's life, and the
ji weight of this- trouble Is believed by
. ( v many of his friends to have at least
I hastened the end. Still fresh in the
,1 i, j , minds of most Salt Lake citizens is the
' 1 1 sensational scene enacted in the court-
I1' . , room ac uie inai or ieter ilortensen,
' ' J', the murderer of Hay. when Mr. Sharp
( ji dc-clarcd In the witness stand that God
j f 1 , had revealed to him the Identity of the
, J!i assassin, and that Mortenscn was the
i' 1 ,'i , guilty one. Mr. Sharp ever remained
l ' , I ! awsltive that he had received a direct
1 ' j , (,;! revelation on this subject, the incident
Hi-)" showing how heavily the tragedy

MAKES A TRIP
How an Eastern Man Was Impressed
With What He Saw in
FRANK S. I.VGOLDSBY, vico-presl-dent
and general manager of the
Ingoldsby Automatic Car com
pany of St. Louis, just re
turned from a trip to the end of tho now
part of tho San Pedro railroad, in
company General Manager Wells, Is
a most loqucnt enthusiast on the sub
ject of the possibilities opened by the
new line and the future of the Inter
mountain country In general. Mr. and
Mrs. Ingoldsby went the full length of
the road In the manager's private car,
ns tho guests of Mr. and Mrs. Wells,
and they declaro that It was one of
the most delightful trips ever taken
"We mado the Journey by daylight,"
said Mr. Ingoldsby yesterday; "took in
everything on tho way, stopping to pick
watorcresses, look at fishponds or to
photograph tho scenery, as the spirit
moved us. And I was agreeably sur
prised to find that the San Pedro Is vir
tually a scenic lino. There aro four
canyons, all of which differ greatly,- and
each possessing attractions peculiar to
Itself. In one the coloring of the rocks
excels anything I have ever seem In
another the pictures cut in the rocks
I by a prehistoric race form a subject for
deep study and profound interest. Wa
spent considerable time examining and
photographing these Interesting char
acters. They were cut ages ago, with
some rude stone Instrument, and every
one would doubtless convey a message
could we but read it. The favorite pic
ture is of the mountain sheep, although
there aro other animals and roptlles
and miscellaneous designs. The picture
of a girl with which the figure of a
bird is closely associated was no doubt
Intended as a. sort of valentine for some
Indian maiden who was herself a bird.
In another place was depicted some
thing which might easily be taken for
a modern straight-front corset, but we
didn't have time to figure out its sig
nificance. But thcro is one thing that
I slHHild like to enter a protest against,
and that is the defacing of those rocks
by modern vandals. The name of John
Jones of Pokagon, carved with a Jack
knife, by the side of these ancient hier
oglyphics, has a tendency to detract
from the historical interest attached to
really valuable relics of a past age,
and there ought to be some way of
"Another thing that surprised me is
the splendid roadbed which the San
Pedro Is building as it goes along. It
Is the bcBt new line I ever traveled over.
As soon as It Is completed trains will
be able to run over tho road as fast
aa engines can pull them, with compar
ative safety. Then, the company Is
putting on the very best modern equip
ment, so that It will rank from the start
with the best roads In the country.
"Will It open up new business for
Salt Lake? Well, I should say so.
Thero Is no question that great ore de
posits oxist In the new country tra
versed by the San Pedro, deposits
which havo not been worked hereto
fore only because of tho absence of
shipping facilities, but which will begin
to turn out many millionaires with the
providing of those facilities by the new
road. Then, the shortening of the dis
tance to the coast Is a great thing, and
cannot but inure to tho great advan
tage of tho city. Those things, with
the development of the magnificent ag
ricultural resources of Salt Lake's ter
ritory, which I understand Ik to be done
by Government Irrigation Works, means
that this city has only a fair start
toward the greatness which the near
future has In store for It."
WHAT THEY SAY
OF THE M SHOW
OOYEZ! Oyes! Oyex! Hear ye!
Hear ye! . Hear ye!
On Monday ye lClh and Tues
day ye 17th will ye Noble Band
of ye Presae club of this burgh confer
on one William Shakespeare, of Stratte-forde-on-Avon,
the benefit of their
consideration and patronage. For be It
known that the same Shakespeare at
tempted a play yclept "Hamlet." In
this play he did become guilty of
serious blunders, anachronisms, in fact.
Now, therefore, the same Press club
will confer on Shakespeare (said
Shakespeare being an obscure drama
tist living on Grub street, so called
because It has mighty little grub In It)
me nonor oi revising nis copy ana cor
recting Ills errors.
Although It ia a Ham Show, It must
be strictly understood that no such In
ferior pen as that of Lord Bacon has
had anything to do with this master
piece. It may be of interest ip note that
bookings at the Salt Lake Theater were
eagerly sought for on dates near the
. 16th and 17th, but when It leaked out In
theatrical circles that the Press club
was going to take the boards, then all
touring companies decided to give it a
right-of-way. Manager Pyper last
week received a frantic telegram from
Maude Adams's manager asking to
have his date changed, because he
rightly Judged that as everybody would
be saving their money for tho Ham
Show, there would be no money for
him. But It was too late. The die was
cast, and Mr. Pypcr was as immovable
as the laws of the Medes and Persians.
It was reported that the above men
tioned William Shakespeare had sent a
round robin, signed by the most
prominent citizens from across the
Styx, containing a vote of thanks to
the Press club for their efforts on the
behalf of history, drama and literature,
and that the name of one Mayor
Charon headed the list, but up to date
no official confirmation of this has been
given out at headquarters.
I J. C. Stubbs, traffic director of the
Harrlman lines, waa overheard to say
at one of the clubs last night, go it is
said, that he wished he had had enough
changes to make in the local offices to
enable him to stay here till the ICth.
His Shakespeare had become a little
foggy of late, eo he said, it ia alleged. ,
and such Intellectual treats- were not
heard out of Salt Lake.
On Wednesday, May 11, an auction
oale will take place at iho Salt Lake
Theater, at which tho boxes and loges
for the performance will be sold.

cated at 207 to 210 new Atlas blk.

WILL TELL ABOUT
Bubin Goldmark Will Entertain
Music Lovers at Unity Hall With
Lecture on Opera,
TK ARSIFAL," tiie Wagnerian op
fir era wn'cn nns created such
profound Interest In the East
this winter, where It was pre
sented for the first time in this country,'
Is the subject of the lecture recital to
be given at Unity hall this evening by
Rubin Goldmark, the'noted Wagnerian
lecturer who has been giving a scries
of lecture recitals during the past week.
The opera "Parsifal" Is based on the le
gends and myths connected with the
quest of the Holy Grail, and is a de
piction of divine love. Mr. Goldmark's
description of the opera Is said to be
most dramatic, dealing with the plac
ing of the grail In the castle of salva
tion In ohnrge of the king and knights,
of its life-giving power to thoso in
charge, of tho downfall of the king
through the power of KUngaor, the evil
magician, of the king's unavailing ro
penance and remorso until he is ab
solved from his sin through the efforts
of Pnrslfal, and finally, of Parsifal's
crowning as king of tho Holy Grail.
The wonderfully dramatic description
Is heightened by tho playing of Mr.
Goldmark. whose skill as a pianist has
aroused tho admiration of all who have
hoard him. Tonight will be the last op
portunity that Salt Lakers will have to
hear Mr. Goldmark, at least for some
time, and their first opportunity to hear
Last night Mr. Goldmark's lecture
was on "Die Meisterslnger von Nuern
berg." Wagner's only comedy. As at
the, previous lectures, a large audience
was present, and the snine interest
which has characterized all the recitals
was apparent last night. Mr. Gold
mark is brimful of his subject and has
aroused greater interest In Wagnerian
music than evor before existed here
and has won for himself a very high
place in the esteem of the music-loving
people of the city.

GIRL FOUGHT HARD,
BUT WAS OVERCOME

School Ovor Her Vigorous
WHEN Deputy Sheriff Fred Butler
undertook to remove Sarah
Woolf from tho county jail to
the Reform school at Ogden he
found her to be the liveliest nlnoty
elght poundS'Of femininity that he ever
Judge Morse found Sarah to( bo In
corrigible yesterday morning, and or
dered that she bo committed to the In
dustrial school. The deputy wont to
her cell in the afternoon to carry the
sentence of the court" Into effect. Sarah,
who Is only 17 years of age, demurred,
and when the officer attempted to
seize her by the arm she threw her
self on the floor and kicked, bit and
scratched all who came near her. Mr.
Butler called for reinforcements and
Jailer Bell responded.
By their united efforts they succeeded
In handcuffing the wild girk but she
still refused to walk and the officers
had to carry her down-stairs. She
kicked and screamed at the top of her
voice, until sho was deposited In the
hack at the door. Then she ceased her
struggles, but squealed shrilly all the
way to the depot. She succeeded In
working the handcuffs off, but when
Mr. Bell threatened to put them on her
again she promised to be good.
In an instant she became good
humored and talkative, and went into
the car with Mr. Butler like a lamb.
On Thursday night Sarah tried to
hang herself. She found a short rope
which had been used by the female
prisoners to dry clothing on, and sus
pended herself from a crossbai-. One
of the prisoners, who was watching
her. attracted the attention of the
Jailer and she was cut down before
tho rope could finish its work. She
was black in the face when they found
her, and declared that hanging was
not as pleasant a mode of suicide ns
she had supposed It to be.
The escapade which led to Sarah's ar
rest was a disturbance at the Parlor
drug store. She gave the soda foun
tain clerk a tongue-lashlng. using the
vilest epithets. In total disregard of the
presence of respectable ladles.
Attorney-General Breeden Gives an
Interesting1 Opinion in the Provo
ATTORNEY-GENERAL M. A.
Breeden has given an opinion
which will doubtless result In a
Councllmanic contest at Provo.
The Provo Council as elected at the last
election was composed of five Republi
cans and llvo Democrats. Recently one
member of the body, Jesse Harding, a
Republican, resigned, and at the meet
ing on last Monday night John E. Bott,
a Democrat, was elected to the vacancy,
the vote having stood five to four. The
question raised is: Can leas than a ma
jority of the Council, as elected, legally
take such action. Tho Attorney-General's
opinion ia In the negative, and It
Is supported by the decision of the Su
preme court which cost Goorge Sheets
the position of Chief of Police of Salt
Lake City several yearn ago. Mr.
Sheets was elected to fill a vacancy by
the votes of seven Councllmen, when
thirteen were present and two absent.
Quo warranto proceedings were brought
In that case by Attorney-General
Breeden and the Supreme court sus
tained the contention that a majority
of the full number of Councllmen elect
ed was required to perform an act plac
ing an obligation upon the city. It Is
considered likely that similar proceed
ings will be brought In the Provo case.

SEATTLE. Wash.. May 7. The two-year-old
son of R. D. Baker,
a wealthy Seattle merchant, was
kidnaped at 10 o'clock yesterday
morning af Eagle Harbor, a summer
resort located on an Island across tho
bay from this city. The child was
taken as he wa9 passing through a
small grove to join his mother, who was
waiting for him on the brow of a hill.
Great mystery surrounds the affair.
Mrs. Baker stood watching her baby as
he come up a gentle Incline. She turned
her eyes away for a moment and when
she looked again he had disappeared.
The alarm was raised and all day and
all night a party of 150 men thoroughly
scoured the Island. There are no wild
beasto on the Island, and the place
where the hoy vanished Is so situated
that he could not possibly have been
drowned In the bay. Plnkerton detec
tives who are working on tho matter
say.it 13 a sure case of kidnap.
