John Rees Killed in the
Fell Six Stories and Broke
His Neck on Iron
It Is Supposed That the Cage Crept
Up, Leaving- the Shaft Unprotected.
Jutijs iiiiiiN&T iii;KS, in years old,
employed as an extra elevator-boy
In the McCornick building, was in
stantly killed about 9:30 yesterday
morning by falling down the west Hide
of the elevator-shaft, from the sixth
floor of the building. The boy struck
on the back of his head on the iron bot
tom of the shaft. His neck was broken
and the base of his skull was frac
tured. . Young Titos had taken a passenger to
the seventh floor, and on the way down
stopped at the Hixth floor, for some un
known reason. It Is presumed that he
left the elevator nt this floor for some
little time and that during hl ab
sence the cage crept slowly upward, as
it is said all hydraulic elevators will
do. When the boy heard the bell ring
he rushed back to the elevator and.
' falling to notice that the cage had left
the floor, opened the door and stepped
off into the vacunt shaft.
A Ghastly Discovery.
Engineer VT. O. McClain, who was in
his workroom in the basement at the
time, heard the noise made by the boy's
iuu auu ne ana nis assistant went up
stairs to see what had happened, lie
supposed that the boy had carelessly
dropped some' article or furniture or
other object Into the shaft. He was
horror otricken, upon entering the ele-valor-door,
to hee the limp body lying
on the lloor. Stepping down Into the
shaft, he raised the head. There was
apparently a slight gasp from the boy,
but no further sign of life. Dr. Bene
dict was on the tcene within a verv
few hilnutee. but " there was no need
of his services. The .body was removed
to the undertaking rooms of Joeeph
AVillium Taylor, on West Temple street,
to be prepared for burial.
Engineer McClain said after the ac
cident that the elevator was In good
"The cages ot all hydraulic elevators
will move s-llghtly. either upward or
downward, shortly after being stopped."
he explained. "The clutch will hold
the cage for a brief period, then It will
move slowly, the direction being gov
erned by tlie matter oC which of the
two cables is pulled taut. This pecu
liarity of the elevator is explained to
all boys before they are permitted to
have charge of an elevator, and they
are warned to look out for it and to not
leave the cage for any considerable pe- '
riod of time.
He Left His Post.
"After taking the body of the boy
from the shaft my assistant and I
went to investigate the cause of the
accident. We ascended by the stairs
to the sixth floor before Ave discovered
anything wrong. On this lloor we found
the elevator-door open. while lh
cage was at the .seventh floor. We
afterward learned that he had taken
a passenger to the seventh lloor and
had started to go down with the cage,
so that the only explanation that can
be given is that he must have left the
cage at the sixth tloor while he went
down the hall for some purpose, and,
upon receiving a call, went back hur
riedly and forgot to look out for the
cage having moved during his absence.
The cage had by that time gone up
ward higher than his head and he
stepped Into the open shaft."
Was Raised Here.
Young Rees was the son of John A.
Rees, a blacksmith, who live with
his family at 1000 South Second West

"Dummy" Diplomas Given Out to
Spare Feelings of Failing Students
7 ERY few of those composing the
larso audience which recently wit
y nesssd the exercises of the Salt
Lake City High school graduating
class know that all who took part in those
i exercises were not graduates.
When the class of sixty-four young peo
ple, clad in student's cap and gown,
marched in a circle about the brllllantly
bedecked stage to receive from President
Moyle the diplomas denoting that they
had completed the course of study of the
city schools, the spectators presumed that
all received precisely the mme precious
document. But It was not so. A half
dozen or moro received only a roll of
blank paper. Thoy were members of the
clnsH, but they had not completed the
course of Htudy.
It wan tslmply a piece of Innocent .de
ception to save the feelings of thonc -who
bad not panned the examination. It would
have been a deep source of mortlilctttlon
for these to have had attention attracted
to them in no conspicuous a manner as to
be missed by the President of the School
WASHINGTON. June 12. Senator
Cockrell of Missouri, who was pain--fully
injured yesterday by being
knocked down by a boy with a blcvcle,
was much better today. The wound in
the shoulder is painful, but It is thought
It will yield readily to treatment. The
Senator Is of robust physical condition,
and fortunately suffered no shock to
his nervous system as a result of the
board w.ien the pl-iaslnu ceremonv of glv
Inff out the diplomas was In progress, so
those having the affair in charge decided
that nc harm could be done by giving
them tho pnpum which meant nothing.
It Is said that tho President became
slightly confused and gave some of th?
genuine diplomas to pupils who were not
entitled to them, while the same number
of roal sraduatcs drew blanks, but tho
mljtikes were all corrcctod after tho cere
mony was over and the diplomuH were
given to those to whom they belonged
Principal Gcorjro A. Eaton of the Woyt
Sldo High ?chool old not cari to dlncusn
the matter of the dummy diplomas when
approached on the subject last evening.
"There In nothing of public Interest In
It," he said "It Is a custom that has
ben in voruo for several years, ver plnce
tho holdlnrr of the school 'commencement'
was abandoned Wo have slmplv class
exercises now, In which u 11 members of
the class participate whether thoy have

undorctood perfectly by all of thorn. Thc.ro
arc usually from twelve to twenty in the
class who do not complete .the course, nnd
