The "little ono" ceased sobbing sudden

Lack, of Acquaintance Brought Wil
liam Campbell to Grief
It cost William Campbell ?10 yester
day to beg from a City Councilman and
a police captain. Beyond tho fact that
ho tried to "mooch" from one of Salt
Lake's legislator and a. pence officer,
Campbell's offense was aggravated still
further. He had Just gotten out of jail
ns a vagrant, and he had money In hlo
pocket. So when Patrolman Johnston
took him Into custody on First South
he had a good strong caso against the
Campbell is about six feet three,
and he Is big enough In proportion
to his height. He was arrested be
fore because he was living off tho kind
ness of the general public, and every
one thought thnt his Jnll esntenco would
bo sufficient lesson for him. But it
wasn't. He had hardly gotten out of
sight of tho headquarters building
Thursday evening before he began ope
rations. "Please Mister, c'n you glmmo the
price of a meal. I ain't had nothln' to
eat for " thuswlso he reeled off tho
old and time-worn "spiel" of hla kind,
picking out passers-by without regard
to sUitlon In life. He was doing well
when Councilman Dean happened
along. The city father looked prosper
ous, and at tho same time "easy."
The hobo sidled up to him and began
an eloquent talk for a "piece of sliver."
But It failed to work. Not at all dis
couraged he passed on.
Then it was that Capt. Burbldgo
loomed up. Now Burbldgo Is one of the
beat-natured looking men on the force,
and more than that, he wears citizens
clothes. And so It came to pass that
William Campbell selected him ns the
next victim. Burbldge hasn't been ap
proached in this manner for a long, long
tlmo, and ho gasped with surprise and
sought to get back his breath before he
made answer to the hobo's fervent plea.
Meanwhile Johnston ' was strolling
down the street swinging hla baton and
looking pleasant. His eyes fell upon
Campbell Just as the latter was slink
ing away from the vicinity of Burbldge.
And, as Campbell, with zeal which
would be commendable in many walk9
of life, made another strenuous attempt
to Invoke charity, this time from a plain
citizen. Johnston's arm descended upon
him. The rest of the proceedings took
about two minutes. Within that time
Campbell was once- more at tho station
desk being relieved of his cash. When
he learned In Police court yesterday
that he had tried to "mooch" from a
police captain and an alderman, he
looked like one who realizes that cir
cumstances are agalnrt him.
Judge DIehl fined him $40, and the
fine will bo served out on the chain

World's fair commission at a mooting

Shurtllff, who returned from St. Louis
Thursday, gave a good account of tho
programme of affairs on the grounds,
lio said that Mr. Whittaker not only
had not resigned, but that he had not
thought of doing so. Recent attendance
at the fair had been very large, he re
ported, on account of St. Louis day
and other special events, and affairs in
connection with Utah's exhibit aro in
every way satisfactory.
Exhibits Are for Sale.
Disposition of such parts of Utah's
exhibit as may be salable at the close
of the fair has begun to engage the at
tention of the commission, and another
effort will be made to Induce the Uni
versity of Utah to purchase the concen

eral Eastern educational Institutions
have displayed great Interest In this
plant, somo of thorn going so far as to
communicate with the manufacturers
with the Idea of attempting to Induce
their own States to have It duplicated.

The commission is confident that it
could dispose of the model mill to some
Eastern State, but it believes that so
valuable an educational exhibit should
come to Utah, and It does not feel that
Its financial affairs are in shape to ad
mit of its making the University so
valuable a present.
It has been the understanding that a
good part of the exhibit at the St. Louis
exposition would be required for the
Lewis and Clark exposition at Portland,
but as a result of the bad treatment ac
corded Utah by Oregon nt the late con
vention of the American Mining con
gress there has been agitation looking
.to the abandonment of this Slate of
all plans for making an exhibit at the
Portland fair, and in such event, of
course, no part of the exhibit will bo
Will Consider tho Question.
It Is expected that a meeting of the
Lewis and Clark exposition commission
will bo held In a few days for the
express purpose of determining whether
Utah shall take any part In that expo
sition. This commission has the same
president und secretary as has the St.
Louis commission Gov. Wells and Gen.
John Q. Cannon, occupying those po
sitions, respectively, while the other
members are Gen. H, B. Clawson,
George P. Holman, Fred J. Klesel and
Senator A. B. Lewis.

Orders havo been received at Fort
Douglas for the removal of the Twelfth
and Twenty-second batteries of field
artillery to Fort Leavenworth, Kan. The
removal will be made as eoon as
quarters, can be prepared for them at
the new station, which will be in three
or four weeks. Tho batteries will be
accompanied by their commanders,
Capt. Sturgls nnd LieuL Greene, and
will go with full equipment of guns and
paraphernalia. They comprise 235 men,
and their departure will leave at Fort
Douglas only five companies- and the
band of Uie Twenty-ninth Infantry.
Battalion Formation Ordered.
The order la made In pursuunco of a
now policy of the War department, to
assemble all batteries In groups of
three, forming batallons, each of which
will be under command of a Major.
The new policy is to be placed Into
execution as rapidly as possible, or as
rapidly as new quarters can be pre
pared where they are needed to carry
it Into effect. It is considered quite
likely that later on a battalion, to be
formed of batteries assembled from
other posts, may be stationed perma
nently at Fort Douglas, although noth
ing official in this regard has yet been
Improving the Target Range.
Work of transforming the practice
range at Fort Douglas Into a standard
rifle range will be commenced as soon
as the special target practice now going
on is completed. It is the intention to
make. It equal to any range now in use
by Uncle Sam's troops. The range will
be 400 feet wide by 1000 yards long,
giving room for twelve men to Bhoot at
the same time. It will contain four pits.
Tho telephone lines will be Installed
connecting the pits with the plnce of
firing. The wires will be placed under
ground, and C990 feet of cable will be
required for the purpose. An appro
priation of several thousand dollars has
been made for the Improvement of the
Fort Douglas Marksmen Did Well.
A circular recently Issued from the
headquarters of the Southern division,
which Includes the po9t of Fort Doug

petition, ranking 9 out of forty-three
competitors, followed by Lieut. Greene,

Breathing at High Altitudes.
The difficulties of respiration at high
altitudes have attended many mountain
climbers and explorers, and the theory
advanced In explanation has been that
this trouble was caused by the reduced
tension of the oxygon In tho ntmosphero.
Prof. Mosso, an Italian scientist, has re
cently .disproved this theory by showing
that if tho pressure of the mixture of
oxygen and nitrogen making up ordinary
air bo reduced to ono-third of an atmos
phere and then the proportion of oxygon
be Increased so that its partial pressure
Is the samo as normal, tho mixture Is
breathed with Inconvenience, accompanied
by an abnormal respiration and pulse.
By taking supplies of pure oxygen and
mixtures of gases to tho summit of Monto
Rosa and analyzing the blood It was
shown, however, that a' diminution In tho
amount of carbon dloxldo in tho air duo
to tho low pressuro was doubtless re
sponsible for much of the troubjo In res
piration. Proof of this was afforded by
breathing a mixture iOf SO per cent of
oxygon and 20 per cent of carbon dloxldo
on top of Monto Rosa, with a feeling of
plcaauro and ease, while the effect of the
same mixture near tho sea level In Turin
was to produco giddiness and vomiting.
If this discovery is substantiated by fur
ther experiments It seems that by carry
ing cylinders containing this mlxturo of
gases the highest mountain pcak3 can bo
scaled, while tho moro provision of oxy
gen Is of doubtful utility. Harper's
