been living in Salt Lako City sovoral
weeks under an alias, and what 1e mora,
he Is now undor arrest aa tho leader of a
crowd of youthful thieves. Hero ho wag
known as David Ross. Yesterday his Iden

He Has an Alias.
Young Brett, alias Ross, Is now in tho
Bait Lake county Jail. Jailor Bell, aftor
being notified that ono of the youthful
toughs arrested the other day by Patrol
man Brown on Fourth South, might bo an
Ogdcn runaway boy by tho nnmo of Brett,
made the prisoner In question admit that
this was true It would seem that young
Brett, while ho lived in a dugout with a
crowd of lawless young thieves and went
by. his middle namo of Ross, comes from
a good Ogdcn family.
Ogdon's Chief of Pollco communicated
with Chief Lynch of the Salt Lako depart
ment yesterdav. asking as to tho whorea
bouts of tho Brett boy. Tho youngster
had been missing from his homo for somo
time. A description of this boy came, and
it was thought that "Ross" might very
probably bo lie.
Immediately a telephone mcssago to this
effect was sent to tho county JalL Bell
was on duty at the time. He Interviewed
"Ross" and the interview was pointed.

to be Brett, and said ho had run away

Not only does young Brott possess nn

which are supposed to go with such a pos
session. He is known to tho police os ono
of the worst members of tho Fourth
South crowd of youthful thieves. This
crowd lived in a cave of their own manu
facture. In it they had weapons, dlmo
novels, stolen goods and other surround
ings more picturesque than conducive to
good morals. All of the crowd wcro ar
rested a few days ago by Patrolman
Brown and all are to bo given a hearing
today with a view of sending- them to
tho reform school. They are In a com
partment of the county Jnll by themselves
and they make more troublo thnn all of

engagement took place. It therefore

Dallln nun conceived a group of man and
horso which Is expressive of vigilance and
readiness, but wholly devoid of stress and
strain. Both steed and rider aro motion

tho need arising, both aro alert and In
stant to act, Tho horso stands squarely
on his four feet, with his nock arched. hl3
head downward toward his chest and his
eyes and eare attentive. Ho is Huggostlvo
of much reserve power. Mr. Dallln un
derstands tho anatomy and nature of tho

ciation of tho beauty and Intelligence of
tho animal, that all of his equestrian
statues havo been notablo for the vitality,
grace, Biipploness and eleganco of tho

a shade moro harmonious, more ullvo,

FIGHTS SHY OF POLITICS,
Congressman "Buck" Landis Here,
but Saves Himself for Fall.
Congressman F. A. Landis of tho Elev
enth district, Indiana, was In the city
yesterday afternoon and ovenlng, on his
way from California to his homo in Lo
gansport. Congressman Landis fought
shy of politics and politicians whilo hero
and preserved a strict sllonce on politi
"No. I don't know anything about tho
'burning Issues of tho hour,' " he said,
with a smile, yesterday evening. "You
see, I"V3 been West for six weeks and
I'm Just going back now to got tho har
ness on for tho campaign. I worked
pretty hard last year and I havo been
taking a completo rest and have tabooed
politics on this trip. I'm not a Congress
man: I'm Just plain 'Buck' Landis.
"Whoro did I get that namo of 'Buck?'
Well, that was tacked on mo when I was
a youngster, because I rode a buckskin
pony, and It's reached mo even down In
Washington. Ono of my constituents
from a llttlo town in tho Eleventh dis
trict camo down to Washington ono day
last winter to seo If he couldn't land tho
postoffice. He put up at my hotel and
asked tho clerk to toll 'Buck' Landl3 that
ho was there. Tho clerk replied that he
didn't know any -Buck' Lnndls, and I
happened Into the offlco Just as ho said
It. It took mo three hours and about
aovonteon drinks to porsuado that follow
that I wasn't sailing undor false colors,
and had not got stuck up. and even now
I'm not sure of his vote, although ho
got tho office.
"I oxpoct that I'll havo to make a few
speeches this fall and I'm saving my
wind for that. If I told you what I
thbught of politics, you might not como
to hear mo speak If you got tho chance,
so you see I'm In duty bound to say
nothing." concluded tho Congressman,
In appearance Congressman Landis is
tall and angular. He wears a heavy mop
of black hair, that is In plcturcsquo dis
order nil of tho tlmo, and In addition to
being ono of tho youngest members of
tho lower house, ho is reputed to be ono
of its ablest speakers. Ho is Just finish

If tho weather man fcola so disposed,
