Salt Lake Is an Agreeable Surprise
"In many ways- I am amazed at tho
progress of your city. Often havo I
pictured hi my mind Salt Lake as a
common frontier town and I did not ex
pect to find a city with so many large
buildings and bvoad streets crowded
with such energetic and rustling citi
zens." Such was- the statement made
last evening by C. Lou "Wnnamakcr,
editor of the Lovcland, Colo., Register,
who is now on a tour through Utah and
tho Northwest, accompanied by his wife
and Mlsy Grace Osborn, the second win
ner of the "popular girls contest" re

"From my observations' I am lead to
believe that tho beet industry is becom

Colorado farmers. Tho soli around
Loveland is especially adapted to the
growing of beets and the Industry has
already assumed enormous proportions.
Last year the Loveland sugar factory
ground 117,000 tons of beets and this
year's output will be equally as large,
If not greater.
"Dry farming has been tried by many
farmers this year with very encourag
ing results. Several Loveland farmers
have averaged from twenty to thirty
bushels of wheat to the acre on 1G0

loaded with heavy buckshot, Miss Marie
Johnson, daughter of Merwln Johnson of
Elm street, Monroe, a villago about four
miles north of this city, and the Misses
Ethel and Edith "Wales, daughters of So

house. Into which two burglars h&H gained
an cntranco by forcing a window, and de

marching into tho front of tho house tho
burglars wcro dropping from a rear win

men rallied some demoralized farm hands
and started on a hunt, the pair escaped.
The necessity which forced Miss John
son to be her own policeman rellects no
credit upon tho seven farm hands em
ployed on tho place. Ono of tho hands
saw the two men at work on the veranda
roof and started an outcry. He was
threatened with a revolver and beat a
hasty retreat. Miss Johnson was alono
In the house. Sho heard a noise and saw
tho two men. Hastily leaving by tho
back door, she went to the barn whero
the hands were assembled and ordered
them to surround the house and capture
Tho men knew the pair were armed and
refused to go near tho house., Miss John
son, after 3omc expostulation, went to the
residence of Solon "Wales, near by, and
explained matters thero. Tho only ones
at home were the two daughters of Mr.

they marched boldly to tho house and led

"While a funeral service- was In progress
In the Vernon church, near Plummer's
Landing, a swarm of bumble bees which
had nested under tho pulpit was dis

caused a panic among the mourners.
Tho ofllclatlng minister and. friends
hastily retreated from tho sanctuary and
wcro closely followed by tho pallbearers
with tho casket, warding off tho bees as
best they could in their Might.
A number of tho mourners and two
pallbearers, are reported to have been
badly stung. However, they remained
until the funeral servlco hid boon con

Tho exact location of tho nest cannot bo

Ono llttlo woman in blue, ono woll
drossed young man nnd one llttlo hand

the crowd at the Dooly block corner
food for thought yesterday afternoon
about 2 o'clock. Tho man and woman
were observed talking together beside
the lamp-poat at the outer edge of tho
eidcwnlk. Tho woman was berating her
companion. At last, seemingly unable
to control herself, she raised her hand
bag and struck tho man twice over the
face. He backed away and started
north on West Temple street, the wom

man broke into a run. The lady gath

going to take another woman to the
circus." was another explanation.
"She found that he had taken her

YEE'S STORIES CONFLICTED.
Judge Twomey Orders Another Ohiuk
Commissioner Twomey decided that
Yco Quon Wah, the Chinaman who was
arrested Tuesday by Chief Deputy Mar
shal Smyth, Is unlawfully in the United
States and hence ordered him deported,
provided ho does not make an appeal
to the United Suites District court with
in tho next ten days.
Yeo Quon Wah pleaded not guilty to
the charge, but, on cross examination,
he told so many conflicting stories that
the court could not but find him guilty.
Yee claimed that for eight years he was
a resident of San Francisco and that
since he has traveled around the
United States as a merchant, remain
ing for a considerable length of time
at Boston. He presented a certlflcato
signed by a notary public of that city,
stating that he was 31 years of age,
weighed 115 pounds and measured five
feet six Inches In height. As a matter
of fact, Yee Is three and three-quarter
Inches higher and weighs nearly 170
pounds. This, combined with Yee's
confession that he had not worked for
four years and had no money, com
pelled the court to decide against him.
For the next ten days he will be
locked up In the county Jail and If he
does not make an appeal within this
period he will be taken directly to Son
Francisco and put on a steamer going
School Census in Weber County Fur
nishes a Surprise.
According to tho report of the Super
intendent of Schools of Weber county
there has been a large falling off in the
school population In that portion of the
State. The census for this year shows
a total school population for Weber
county of 3275 against 34S3 for the year
1903. This shows a decrease for the
year of 20S children of school age. Of
the total school population 1632 are boys
and 1G 13 are girls, as against 1711 boys
and 1742 girls last year.
The only reason that has been as
signed for this poor showing Is the
large number of people who have left
the State to go to the Mormon settle
ments in Canada during the past twelve
months. There has been a big emigra
tion from the Stale to the new settle
ments and it Is expected that there will
be decreases shown In the reports from
other counties, especially in the south
ern part of the State. Reports from
these counties have not as yet been re
ceived by the Stato Superintendent.
DONOVAN COULDN'T SWIM.
Rescued From Watery Grave on State
John Donovan, 50 years old and very
drunk, was leaning against a package
mailbox at the corner of State and'
Second South streets about 7 o'clock last
evening, when tho box vcpred beneath
his weight and Donovan fell with a
splash Into the street gutter, which was
running full of clear, cool water from
City creek. But the water did
not have the effect of restoring Dono
van's ability to take care of himself,
fog he Is actually paralyzed In one leg
aside from having been "paralyzed
drunk" In the other. The man lay
sprawling In the gutter until help came
and he was lifted bodily to his feet,
and had the accident occurred at a
time of night when no one was on the
street he might easily have been
drowned. , Policeman Armstrong and
Patrol Driver Seger were called to the
scene with the wagon and Donovan was
taken to Jail.

How Time Was Saved.
Every effort was made to save time.
On First South and Main three-timekeepers
were stationed. One man was
timekeeper at Second South and Main.
The duty of these men was to clear
the cars of passengers as soon as pos
sible, assist passengers to board the
cars and to inform the conductors as
to the cars preceding them.
The law requires that cars come to
a full stop fifty feet from railroad cross
ings. Yesterday, to save time, four flag
men were placet! at the crossings to
IU1U v.u.1.7 Ul LllU LIU.1U3, U11U 11U CAUll
delay was Involved.
The intention was to have cars run
to the grounds each minute, or about
ono block apart. If the regular sched
ule had been observed, the last of the
crowd probably would have reached the
circus grounds In lime to see the stakeu
pulled up, a performance not altogether
satisfying to the average circus-goer.
Qualifications of Conductors.
Only men of experience are used on
the circus cars, the less skilled being
kept on the side streets. To perform a
conductor's duty on one of the heavily
laden cars, a man must combine the
qualities of the monkey, giraffe, toad,
snake and an automatic cash register.
There always Is some one with a $20'
bill from which 5 cents Is to be ex
tracted. This the conductor la expected
to do while he hangs by his teeth from
the top of the car, the only place left.
Everybody in a Hurry.
Every one Is anxious for a car after
the performance Is over. For this occa
sion empty cars have been brought to
the grounds in sufficient number to
accommodate as many as possible. At
the grounds the company 'had men to
help passengers aboard and to prevent
One of the principal reasons for plac

Watch the Women.
It Is the women, particularly, whom
the timekeepers have to watch. With
a woman Intent on catching a receding
car, It Is "Pike's peak or bust" and It
is generally bust. Nevertheless, she still
pursues, and the proverbial old maid
In her chase after a man Is not "In It"
with a robust matron and five young
ones after a car.
There is a serious side to It. The
street railway does not employ thes-e
men to watch passengers as a Joke. At
Saltalr on Ladies day two years ago
mothers became so excited at the leav
ing of the train that they threw their
children Into the cars and attempted to
board the moving trnin. They were pre
vented by the men sent to watch them.
This scene is often repented on circus
day, where women become excited
thinking that the last car Is leaving.
Expense to the Company.
Tho expense to the .car company is
about $1 per hour on every car. But
the returns are great. With 20.000 peo
ple, fifty on a car, it is not hard to
see how many cars and how much
track room is required to make the
transportation perfectly satisfactory To
