I RhurtlPfl of 1SI East Firth South street or
J '( tho dreaded Death valley, after returning
,' from a trip to Los Angeles by wagon,
i, i "Tho Death valley la not by any means
what pcoplo arc led to think It Is." Bald
Mr. Shurtloff yesterday. "Only for a dis
tance of about a mile Is there any sand.
' All the rest of the way It Is hard, smooth
and as level as you could wish. If It had
not been for tho terrlllc heat from the
' nun's rays we could havo drlvon all the
, vny at a fast trot. But so great was tho
1 heat that wo had to hold our hats a little
J higher than our heads for fear of getting
Kunstroke, and, even at a walking pace,
the horses fairly wilted.
Frank Dreaded Indians.
H "Wc had very little cxcltomcnt, but a
H whole lot of fun. especially with a fellow
t named Frank Wilkes. Wo got him so
H ' 1 .scared of Indians that ho would hardly
H , let go of his shotgun. Miss Edna Franks,
H daughter of Deputy Marshal Franks,
H who was with Mrs. Sherman's party that
H r aught up with us, had him going south,
j Ones night when we were camped a few
1 I miles south of Moapa, sho got a rope,
H and after tho rest of us had turned In
lor tho night (Wilkes with his lantern
H ' alight on his wagon and his shotgun by
H jr.is pillow), went down a little way from
H ' camp and tied her hand and feet together
H rear a clump of trees.
H "Then she set up a scream and shouted
H 'Murder! Murder!' to beat the band. All
j the rest of tho fellows made out we wero
H to scared to go down and rescuo her, so
j .1 eld Wilkes look up his shotguno and said,
1 'Well, If all you men are too big cowards,
H I'll go Just to show you I'm not '
Thinks Ho Killed Indian.
H "Off he went, and when he camo to the
H place where sho was screaming ho was so
H, frightened that ho thought the bushes
1 wero moving and let off his gun. And the
1 funny part of it was that to this day we
1 can't get him to believe that he didn't
j kill an Indian. Wo could find no sign of
j nny killing having taken place, but he
H -was regularly cut up about It. When wo
H got into California he was going to tho
H I authorities to give himself up. When we
nld him they would only laugh at him, ho
thought wc didn't want him to do It br-
H c.iuao we worn ashamed of having been
H such cowards that wc wouldn't rescue the
B lady ourselves.
BSfl, 1 "Having accomplished this heroic feat.
i Mr. Wilkes did the regular thing by ask-
BmJ ing Miss Franks to marry him. Great
1 was his astonishment whn sho answered
BmJ that she wouldn't marry him on a desort
BmJ , Island if he were the only other male In-
BmJ i habitant. He accused her of base lngrntl-
BmJ ' tude. he having saved her from a horrible
death when all his companions were too
frightened to move. Even then sho failed
, to make- him believe that the whole affair
KwB 1 was a joke.
Another Joke on Wilkes.
i "Another joke we had with him," said
H Mr. ShurtlflT, "wis when he killed a
1 d-nert runner. Wo told hi in of the many
B -times doBert runners had saved people's
live?, and that the State government had
BSf onacted the heaviest peualilcs for any one
BmH -who killed one of thcan birds. Ho dug a
holo so deep thnt it took him half an hour

BBJI 71alns, they had no difficulty In the way

BBJr was plentiful all along tho route, espc-
BVj , daily, after they passed tho Las Vegas

Hj Saltalr, this week,
Los Angolos 3Ian Plans Improvo
mente Purchased Site at Corner
of Pirst South and Third East.
C. A. .Tudd, a recent arrival here from
Los Angelas, has faith in the future of
Bait Lake City, and ho Is going to back
Ills Judgment by the erection of a three
fltory modern lint building on the old
ftrighnni H. Toung lot, swulhwcst cor
ner of Third East and First South. Ho
but lately bought the- property from Lit
tle & Lilttle for the ruth of 5C50O. It Is
72 feet on First South and 127 feet on
He will at onco put up a three-story
building, with basement, to contain six
separate flats. Tho whole building will
be of the most modern description and
will cost from $13,000 to $14,000. It will
be finished this coming winter.
Parties" are understood to be figuring
for the old Orphanage property, which
Is diagonally opposite the Judd pur
chase. This will be the first apartment-house
In th Immediate neighborhood, which
Is In the center of one of the best resi
dence sections. '
Great Demand for Plats.
It goes to enow that Salt Lake is
quickly taking Its place as a well
equipped city for this- class of Ameri
can home life. There have been many
who have shaken their heads when such
buildings have- been mentioned, but the
fact that the Holmes and. Miller Hats
and other like buildings had their suites
all routed prior to the completion of the
buildings speaks well for the future, and
the big Emery apartment-house at
Eagle Gate, although not nearly fin
ished, has all its suites engaged. The
Bachelor apartment and Whitehall are
llllc-d, and so there Is surely a demand
for buildings of this class-.
Mr. Judd will profit by the experience
of others nnd will make his flats just
as perfect and comfortable as It Is pos
sible to do In these modern times.
Will Ask tho City Council to Treat
Everybody in the Same
At the meeting of the City Council
tonight will be read a petition from the
Retail Liquor Dealers' association set
ting forth Its grievances against the
present system of taxation and asking
that the ordinances be amended. They
will request the Council to raise the li
cense of $400 a year charged the drug
stores and restaurants to $1200 a year,
tho amount of the saloon-keeper's li
cense. It is understood that the saloonmen
will further demand that they be per
mitted to allow women In their wlnft
rooms after 7 p. m or that the ordi
nance be enforced In regard to the Salt
Palace resort, where, it Is alleged,
women can secure beer openly during
the restricted hours. There may be
porno question as to the constitution
ality of the- ordinance which prohibits
women from entering saloons the same
a.s men, but until this question has been
decided the saloor.men aak for Justice
and that the city ordinances be en
forced against all alike.
It is a fact that a majority of the
City Council are in favor of permitting
tho sale of liquor to women at the Salt
Palace, but nowhere else In the city.
Councilman Fernstrom Introduced an
amendment to the ordinance which pro
vided for thiy and the- ordinance was
passed. It provided that the section re
lating to the sale of liquor to females
apply throughout the city except below
Ninth South street, and It was openly
stated on the floor of the- Council that
the sole purpose of the measure was to
Iicenso the selling of beer to women at
that resort. But the amendment was
vetoed by Mayor Morris, and section 32.".,
which reody as follows, is still In ef
fect: "Females Prohibited from Being In
Saloons or Wlnerooms Between the
Ilouru of 7 p. m. and 7 a. m, It shall
be unlawful for any person keeping any
saloon to have or keep In connection
with or as a part of his place of busi
ness any wlneroom, garden or other
place, roofed or open, either with or
without doors, curtain or curtains or
sceens of any kind, Into which any fe
male person shall be allowed to enter
from the outside, or from such saloon,
nnd there be supplied with any kind of
-liquor whatsoever. It shall likewise be
unlawful for any person, be he owner,
agent, bartender or employee of any
saloon, to permit, any female person to
be or remain in such saloon between
the hours of 7 o'clock In the afternoon
and 7 o'clock In the forenoon, or to em
ploy any female in any such saloon
at any time."
If the Salt Palace management Is
convicted of the violation of this ordi
nance, the City Council can do nothing
but revoke the license of the place
under section 328, which, under sec
tion 329, would make the resort ineligi
ble to ever receive another license to
sell intoxicating liquors.

sons for going and refused to give out
any further Information.
As a pastor, tho licv. John Richclsen
stood well with his congregation, and
many were the expressions of regret
and godspeed that he received from

lias grown and the church attendance
has actually been doubled. His min
istry hns been characterized by hard
and diligent i work, and the results
achieved tell how successfully he has
applied his labor. He Is a bright think

his reasons for going, reads as follows:

that he recovered within two weeks and

DIVER GOES '
Inflow Can Be Stopped by Noon
Today, Is the Re
port. Whltelaw and Dolph, the deep-aea
divers brought hero from the coast to
locate the trouble with tho big pumps
of the Utah Copper company at Bing
ham, began their work yesterday after
noon. Four descents were made by
Dolph. who located the trouble and will
havo, the Inflow of water shut ofT by
noon today, when the unwnterlng of
the shaft will commence.
Dolph descended Into clghty-flvc feet
of water In Iho shaft. His suit and
weights tipped tho scales at 200 pounds,
his shoes alone weighing 37M: and his
helmet CO pounds. The diver says he
Is confident that there will bo no trou
ble in closing the bulkheads. Ho says
this can be accomplished by noon.
Sinker pumps will then be used in un
waterlng the shaft, which will require
from forty-eight to seventy-two hours.
Tackling on Hand.
D. C. Jackllng, general manager of
tho company, arrived from Colorado
yesterday morning and went to camp
on the 3 o'clock train. He returned to
the city in an automobile. Whllo the
pumps have been out of order the ma
chinists and carpenters In the mill havo
been making some changes that have
been projected for some time, and the
trouble has in no way affected the op
erations of the company. The pumps
arc used In raising water from Bing
ham canyon for the tables In the mill.
The mines arc three miles distant and
there has been no interruption In tho
work there. j
IS RESCUED FROM
Friends Procure, tho Release of An
drew Miller, tho Eccentric
Andrew Junius Miller, who was re
cently sent to Prcvo at the Instigation
of a neighbor, was released from cus
tody' yesterday and, later, returned to
ZIon. He Is now back In his little castle
busying himself, as usual, In making
everything look neat and tidy.
"When Miller's neighbors heard of his
commitment they immediately arose In
arms and a committee of them got to
gether and began to investigate tho
matter. They became convinced that
the complaint against Miller had been
sworn out by his neighbor because the
latter Is desirous of selling his property
and considers that Miller's presence
does not materially assist In Increasing
Its valuation. Miller's neighbors pre
pared a petition requesting his release.
Attorney A. B. Edler presented the case
before Judge Morse Saturday and se
cured an order for his release. The re
quired $250 bond which had already
been signed by twenty of Miller's
neighbors was immediately deposited,
and thus all was prepared for Miller's
Yesterday morning John Meyerhoffer,
his landlord, left for Provo carrying tho
..order for his release, which was speed
ily secured. While waiting for a return
train Miller was taken for a drive and
shown all the sights of the Garden City.
Ho evidently enjoyed himself, and cer
tainly must have enjoyed the trip, It
being his first experience outside of Salt
Lake for thlrtv-four years.
When seen at his home last evening
Miller was in a very happy mood and
had a kind word and cheerful smile for
all his friends nnd neighbors as they
called to bid him welcome home. Ke
reports that he was kindly treated while
at Provo, but, in accordance with the
asylum requirements, he was placed in
a cell and compelled to undergo other
forms of treatment, which ho deemed
nonsensical In the extreme.
It is understood that George Buckle,
former President of the City Council,
will prefer charges against Francis M.
Snell. who was Instrumental in having
Miller sent to Provo, in the bishop's
court of the Thirty-third ward. Snell's
neighbors are rather Indignant over his
actions and claim that while Miller is
rather an odd character and slightly
deficient, he is not dangerous In any
sense of the word.
