I ' ' , ft More mystery was thrown about the
'i Vermilion case last eveningly the dls-
'J ! covery that the revolver found beneath
I (1 ' ! the body was probably4 not the drug-
, ( ti j gist's weapon. Judge "Vfennllion. fnth-
1 ; i :! ' er of tho dead man, stated that he bc-
1 ' . lleved his son's weapon was -of a dlffer-
1 cnt pattern entirely ,than that dis-
' l. covered. If this be true the seeming
" ' ; '(, ; mystery It cast over tho affair may
1 ' prove one of those strange clrcum-
I , rj; ' stances, which, while they at first puz- i
! ' 7.q, eventually throw light on the mat-
, I tor.
' ' I j According to Judge Vermilion, tho
j' druggist's pistol was patterned like a
' '; Colt's double-action of. late date, its
,',, !, cylinder throwing out to one side to
, '"j!!'' eject the cartridges. The revolver lying
' (, i beneath Vemlllon's body, broke . down
, J ' like a Smith & Wesson.
j "Woman Saw Murderer.
)' Another witness, who saw the mur-
i derer flee from the drug store, Is now
Mi : an object of search on the part of those
' J - jjj. investigating the affair. This witness
j Is a woman who was waiting for a car
') at the corner of Fourth West and Scc-
Vi'fl and South. She heard the shots; started
j r jjl to run; saw her car coming; halted, and
' ' ' Hi ! then saw the man emerge from tho
fi..! store and run in the same direction as
. n i when seen by Dr. Hazel and Frank Gll-
') ! Ham. The last named witness will
, j J.I testify before the Coroner's jury this
i j morning. The woman In question lives

'ii'iral Three "Witnesses Agree.
I r I'll -A One "remarkable feature in the three
i, ! y descriptions of the murderer and his
, -V i route Is that the latter tallies perfectly
I W'g, in all of them. He is described by Dr.
' ijj f Hazel, by Gilliam and by the woman
' j , ";( -who is now being looked up, as having
' 'ij!' gone from the drug store cast along
i J J j T Second South to the southwest corner
, , j l U of Fourth West. He cut that corner
i !) V. southeast; crossed Fourth West in that
direction, and ran into the vacant lot
. I pi across the street. , In this lot he hung
(!f close to the picket fence at its south
1 h a end, disappearing in the thick brush.
' ' 1 T ; Painstaking investigation on the part
If j. of" the Coroner's jury, investigation
M-ij.i-. which lasted during all of yesterday
i afteraoon, brought out still more
') ' strongly the Idea of murder In the Ver-
.'fffll' mlllon case. Witnesses told of the
'Tif'l l struggle before the shots, a struggle
i J'j'ji ' jl whose noise frightened them; and other
11 fc ' witnesses told of the fleeing murderer,
w 5 a brief sight of whom wao caught as
,ii j i he neared the Intersection of Fourth

HT 'It;!' Attorney Says "Foul Play."
H 1 II' I "I ief?ar- the suicide theory as un-
Hj t ', S tenable," oaid Assistant County Attor-
. A ney Ingcbretsen at the conclusion of
I iii yeaterday afternoon's testimony. "I am
Hl , ,'1 (f ' 1 1 ' unable, of dourso. to give out a definite
H! ' ; .1 !;t opinion at this. time. The investigation
H, f wi Ji is not yet over. But all evidence thus
H ! j ill far heard points to the fact that the gun
' i ir was not in Vermilion's hands. In the
, Bi Ifl absence of anything to discredit it we
, ; V. must give weight to the testimony of a
i ! J wltneas. who saw a man fleeing from the
j j '1 direction of the store. No motive for
Hj i ( li'i t suicide haa been shown, absolutely
H. ,, ! , I none. Of course no motive for murder
H M'; it has been shown. So wo must go ahead

' ,fi to base conclusions. Under these clr-

of 1000. The lnrgest number of paid

OB LESS VAIN
Porhaps tho Women of Salt Lako City
Aro Both Blondos Aro
"The women of Salt Lake arc either
naturally moro beautiful than women of
other cities, or they are less vnln," said
tho bead of a certain "beauty" parlor,
'in this city.
"Why do I make that statement? Be
cause I have come from Denver, and I
have kept parlorn in tho leading cities,
and I have never found women more In
different to tho approach of age and
ouch things than the women of Salt
Lake. Thoy seem to be too busy going
c-vcrywhore and seeing everything to
caro about their wrinkles. Of course we
think it Id foolish In them, because they
will think about them when It Is too
late. Now, tho women In the East who
hold approximately the same position
in society that these Salt Lako women
do, would not think of missing a treat
ment. But of course thoy care for so
ciety longer than the women here do.
That may account for the difference.
"Tho women hero are generally care
ful of their hair. They do not give much
time to Its care as to the way it is
dressed. They are very particular
ubout that, and usually show good
taste. Even the hop girls in Salt Lako
know how to dress their hair as a rule.
Wo have more regular customers for
washing and dressing the hair than for
"Have you ever noticed how many
blondes there are in Salt Lake? Just
make the experiment by walking up
Main street some Saturday afternoon,
and you will find that out of every four
pretty girls, three of them will bo pure
blondes. Next comes the dark reds, a
very noticoablo type. Most of those
blondc-n are tho real things, but you
would be surprised at the number of
really nice women in Salt Lako who
have their hair bleached. They come to
us for regular treatment, and they cer
tainly have pretty heads much prettier
than before. Anybody can detect a
peroxide blonde, but there are treat
ments beyond detection. I am not tell
ing what they arc. When you see a
woman with hair of different shades,
that doesn't prove that she bleaches it
Lots, of women have hair like that, and
some one nlways suspects them of
bleaching it when the woman who sits
next to her with the entirely cream
colored hair, produced by art, passes all
inspection without a word.
"Why Is blonde hair most popular?
Well, of course I can't say for sure. I
only know that only gray-haired women
ever ask for dark hair that Is, dyed.,
I suppose it is because there is usually
a look of more life in pretty blonde hair;
it looks more feminine, and It looks
cleaner. Then, too, It combines beauti
fully with things women like best to
wear the frills and dainty things. The
fact remains that blondes are moro
popular among women than brunettes
in Salt Lake. I wonder how It Is with
the men which they ndmlre most."
Delivery Horse Set a Bad Example
to Cab Team.
Frightened at an incoming passenger
train at tho Rio Grando depot about 3
o'clock yesterday afternoon, a delivery
horso of tho W. A. Nelden Drug company,
which had been left standing a short dis
tance south of tho depot, dashed wildly
through a portion of thc gathered crowd,
overturned a wnlting nack, Injuring
Frank Davenport, tho driver, and causing
another cab team to run away. Daven
port hnd one of his legs badly bruised, but
his Injuries are .lot serious. It was con
sidered remarkable that no one In the
crowd at tho depot was run over.
When tho delivery horso collided with
tho hack ho became detached from his
own wagon and ran up Second S6uth
street, closely followed by tho cab team
which ho had caused to run away, iho
three horses' and the swinging cab made
excellent time up 1 tho street, narrowly
missing several collisions with telephone
poles and other teams. Tho Nelden horso
was captured near Second West street,
and when the cab team reached West
Temple, almost exhausted, It turned
northward on that street and was stopped
In tho mlddlo of tho block. The dellverv
wagon and the overturned hack woro
qulto badly wrecked.

George D. Roper, ono of tho pnoprlotont
of tho Zang saloon, was arrested yester
day afternoon on a charge of having ob

warrant was sworn out by Sorct. Ed

mittee of the Whole
City Attorney Says That There Will
Be No Liabilities for Dam
ages to Property. .
After two hours of pdrslonato debato,
during which tlmo thc Councilmcn and
Brigham street pavement protcstants
Joined hands In suggesting ideal plans,
sandwiched in with worm roasts, tho
Council as a commlttco of tho whole, by
a voto of four to scvon, finally decided
to rocommend that tho protest of tho
Brigham streot property owners bo filed
without action. If this motion be sus
tained by tho Council, as 13 very prob
able Brigham street will bo paved In ac
cordance with tho plan presented by En
gineer Snow and approved by tho Council.
At the conclusion of last evening's de
bato City Attornoy Doy mado tho follow
ing reply, when asked by Councilman
Tuddenham If tho city would bo liable for
damages in case tho street wcro paved In
accordanco with tho approved plan:
"Tho city will not bo llablo to any in
junction from tho residents of Brigham
street. In tho year 1S01 tho council oniy
approved of a grado for tho sidewalk and
consequently they havo tho right to es
tablish a strcot grade at tho present time
without danger of being enjoined. Some
few years ago, however, tfic Council
gavo tho Bell Tclcphono company a grado
estimate, working on which as a basis
thoy established a pormanent conduit.
I-Ienco thc city will either havp to chango
tho intended paving whero this Is located
or build tho company a new conduit"
Cost of a Conduit.
City Engineer Snow then took thc floor
and explained that ho cduld build a now
conduit for 53500 ' if the cornpany would
glvo tho city its old cable at 100 per cent
value; otherwise It might cost tho city
?G0C0. if an entirely now cablo bad to be
Councilman Fcrnstrom Introduced tho
following resolution, which was seconded
by Black: "Be It resolved that when this
committee adjourns that It report to the
Council that tho protest of tho Brigham
s"trect residents has been filed without ac
tion." Tho voto on thc resolution stood: Ayes
Black, Barnes, Dean, Fcrnstrom, Har
tensteln, Tuddenham and Wood. Noes
E. II. Davis, Hobday, Preeco and Hcwlott.
It Is highly probablo that tho ayes will
bo ablo to draw their ono required volo
from tho absentees L. D. Martin, A. J.
Davis, O. M. Neuhauscn and R. S. Wells.
As soon as tho Council committee con
vened last evening Fcrnstrom took tho
floor and said: "Wo havo discussed this
proposition for the last two years and
If all tho thanks tho city will get for
expending JS7.COD Is a string of damage
suits I am in favor of calling a halt and
leaving thoao people in thc mud. Thc
cltv has already oxpendod $2000 In adver
tising for bids and preparing plans and
It's time to quit this expensive fooling
Tho question Is: Do theso people prefer
to havo this presont plan or none at all?"
Hartenstein Defends Protestants.
Councllmen Black and Tuddenham mado
remarks along tho samo lines, claiming
that the Council had dono everything to
pleaso tho protestants, but luul failed.
Hartenstein thought that It was better to
advertise half a dozen times In order to
get the proper grade rather than mako

Col. Wall and. His Plan.
Col. Wall, chairman of tho Board of
Public Works, gavo a highly technical
explanation of tho situation, suggesting
as a remedy for the troublo a plan which
ho, with an export onslneer. previously
worked out to tho satisfaction of a ma
jority of tho residents. Ho congratulated
Engineer Snow on tho excellence of his
scheme, ami intimated that it might bo

changes. "However." he said, "tho street
should bo so paved that tljo approaching

At this point Councilman Fcrnstrom in

Tho Pole Did Not Fall.
The most surprising part of the acci

not driven through the llesh by the
terrific force of contact which must
have been occasioned by a leap, un
