Hjf Well-Known Cigar Men
Eii; Came to Salt Lake From
Hpi Iowa More Than Thirty
B! Yearns Ago.
Hl -Carried tho First Damage Suit
Hj, , Aguinst tho City to a Success-
j ul Termination.
hL Samuel Levy, pioneer citizen of Salt
H ; Lake City, and ono of tho most wldcly-
HJ !; j known men in tho cigar trade In the
Hm I Intermountain country, died at 7:15
Hjj last night at his home, 152 West Third
j South street, of diabetes, after an 111-
, .! ' ness of about two years. f
' The deceased was born April 1G, 1S41,
! 'I' in London. He came to the United
HL" States when 12 years old. His first
f(f business venture was In Council Blults,
n , la., where he was a member of the
Hiiv firm of Paregoy & Levy, cigar manu-
HlK' facturers and jobbers. The business
Hk'H a8 very prosperous until everything
was swept away by Are in 1SC5.
H) Came Hero in '72.
H, ri. Levy came to Salt Lake City In
Hkjf: 1S72 and again engaged in tho manu-
H'.'M lecturing and handling of cigars. Here
H& he rapidly recouped his fallen fortunes.
H: fil During the period from 1SS0 to 1890 ho
HV; was quite wealthy, he having nccumu-
HKT- lated 5200,000 to $300,000 directly from
his business. At one time as high as
'V 120 men were employed by him In mok-
Htf- lng cigars. Then reverses camo, due
,j' : to unfortunate mining investments, and
P t he again became almdst penniless. He
H'i retained control of his business, how-
HI' T ever, although operating It on a small-
Hr' J er scale, and gradually became compar-
Hr. atlvely independent again. The bus-
H'''l Iness has been carried on at Its pres-
H ;, ent location, 171 South Main street,
Hm since 1SS0, it having been managed
i during the two years of Air. Levy's 111
Hf ness by his son. Joe Levy, -who will
Hrl continue to conduct It.
jijjh Was a Good Citizen.
jjft During the active years of his life
w spent In this city Mr. Levy was prom-
H'-'h lncnt in all movements calculated to
.jjjj advance the Interests of the city and
Hgjl the community conspicuously so in
H'V in the old Liberal movement. He was
j'vjl public-spirited, broad-minded, gener-
p ous and In every way a good citizen.
Mr. Levy had the distinction of hav-
Kjjf lng been plaintiff in the first damage
Hrt; suit ever brought against the munlci-
( ' pallty of Salt Lake City. The suit was
Hpl' brought In the year 1880. It was tried
HMj twice -in the District court and was
Hrf' twice appealed to the State Supreme
Hhj, court, the flnal decision having been
KMi rendered In June, 1SS7, affirming a judg-
n1' ment for $1900 in the plaintiff's favor.
IjSw Huined His Tobacco.
fi-cW Tne amaEcs for which Mr. Levy
jl'9 souglit to recover were occasioned by
the overflow of irrigation water into
the cellar of his homo on Third South
i'Wi street, ruining some $16,000 worth of
ujij Havana leaf tobacco which he had
lm stored there. A neighbor named
B,fi; John Smith had a small field of alfalfa
Sjr! on his ground adjoining Mr. Levy's
B property, and the irrigating ditch by
jjtiitjl which it was watered was permitted to
jjw flow unchecked during tho night of
ft lit July 1, 18S0, flooding the Levy cellar
f( and causing the damage mentioned.
sJj. The case opened what at that time
ill were new legal points relating to tho
rijj: liability of a municipal corporation for
fly damage Inflicted by irrigating ditches
s occuplng the streets and it was vlgor-
vi ously contested. On the first trial in
III the District court the plaintiff, after
presenting his case, was non-suited.
gE He then took an appeal to the Supreme
Cjlt court, with Sutherland and McBrlde as
Mfl his attorneys, while Aurellus Miner
jj represented the city. As a result of
Bill this appeal Justice Twiss delivered an
Vm opinion reversing the lower court and
Xj remanding the case for a new trial.
nS Judgment Finally Secured.
i On the new trial judgment was sc-
S'fij cured, when the city moved for a new
5;J trial, which was denied, and appeal
jiK was then taken by the City to the Su-
Mt preme court. Judge Henderson, now
rj of the firm of Henderson, Pierce,
Baj Crltchlow & Barrette, delivered the
vffl opinion on thlB appeal, affirming the
rjf; Judgment of the District court
pgi The deceased leaves a wife and six
!; children, four boys and two girls,
b-W whose ages range from 14 to 29. The
8 K children are Maurice, Lottie, Joe, Har-
r, a old, Dolly and Reginald. Funeral ar-
U rangements have not yet been complet-

:j ...AMUSEMENTS... j
Salt Lake Theatre Florence Roberta In
"Tess of tho D'Urborvlllea," a four-act
dramatization by Lorlmcr Stoddard of
Thomas Hardy'6 novel of tho same namo.
Grand Theatre "Arizona," a four-act
play by Augustus Thonios.
Florence Roberts brings us a play this
time that no ono who thoroughly enjoys
stajTO woo can complain of. "Teas of tho
D'Urborvllles" 1b a drama of poworful
situations all distressing It goes from
unhapplncsa to misery, from misery to
despair, and ends In tragedy. So If you
havo a soul that yearns to bo harrowod
up, here Is its blissful chance.
Tho story of Toss Is the old, old ono of
a girl deceived. It tells, howovor. of un
usual misfortunes. The girl's parents plot
against her, tho villain is of courso against
her, and tho man who marries her desoris
her when sho tells him of her past. Then
poverty and starvation and dlseaso bring
her family to awful wrotchedness, tho rent
Is not paid and eviction from tho hut of
a homo is threatened. Then steps In tho
villain, with a villain's equipment of a
riding whip and a sneer. Ho wants Toss
bock. Her own mother appeals to her
to go with him. But sho is loyal to her
husband, now In far-off Brazil. She foils
to get expected employment. Her littlo
brother is sick. Tho family's situation le
doHperato. Tho villain comos back, con
vinces Tcss that her husband is dead, and,
suffering from her accumulated woe, sho
sacrifices herself. '
t Her relatives now cat, and aro not
evicted. But Tess goes on suffering. Tho
villain Is cruel to her. Her husband comes
back. Seeing that ho Is allvo, sho takes
a knife and, going Into tho room whero
her deceiver Is lying drunk, sho kills him.
Is not all this horrifying enough to suit
Through all tho pitiful experience of
Tcss Miss Roberts is strong. Tho char
acter does not give her much opportunity
for the display of those lighter moods In
which sho excels. She may convince us
by the force and merit of her acting In
theso gloomy plays, though she cannot
charm as when her archness and vivacity
are given play. In this latest of her char
acters, howovor, sho reveals now strength,
and now capability.
Lucius Henderson has tho part of tho
unhappy husband, and plavs It qulto well.
Hobart Bosworth Is tho villain of the oc
casion. Ho played tho part with Mrs.
Flske, and Is a good villain, especially
when ho gives us a representation of a
bad man drunk. Olllo Cooper, in the part
of tho young brother of Tess, was ono
of the best actors of tho night. Tho com
pany Is satisfactory throughout,
Tho charm of "Arizona." with its mesa
dust, Its Navajo ornaments. Its army
and ranch life, and abovo all its stirring
dramatic construction and clever dla.
logue, seems to hold tho Interest of thca-ter-goors.
The Grand was filled last eve
ning for tho opening of Its week's run
hero, tho boxes were draped in flags, and
four of them wcro filled with officers and
ladles from Fort Douglas, whllo Col.
Ferry of the Governor's staff and a party
occupied another Judging from tho ap
plause that followed all tho entrances,
''fat" lines and situations, the play has
lost none of Its favor. It has been said
of it that Thomas never wrote anything
better, and certainly It has brought him
golden returns. Tho company playing it
this year Is good all through. Two mem
bers of tho cast aro of the company here
Inst year, Bon Dcano as Dr. Fenclon and
Charles Graham as Sergt. Kellar, and
they aro tho samo as ever. The scenery
Some of the members of tho company
aro better than the ones we saw pre
viously. This Is especially true of Es
trclla, who In the Inst production was
very stout and not dressy. MIrs Clara
Langley Is very handsomo and her gowns
arc such that any officer would bo glad
to havo a flirtation with her. She Is a
good actress, too. Mr. ICcenan as Capt.
Hodgman is a finer looking ofllcor and
villain and a better actor than tho one
last seen. Francis Justlco Is a very young
man and slight of build, but as Denton
ho throws all the life and quick action
Into the part and makes good frequently
As every ono knows, all the characters
act themselves, tho playwright having
woven topother a dialogue and sorlca of
Bcenes that ar Interesting from begin
ning to ond, and at times each character
becomes the leading man or woman. Tho
Tony of Escamillio Fernandez and tho
Lena of Harriet Wlllard aro pood pieces
cf work, and at tho usual dozen encores
followed by tableaux after tho murder
they received an ovation from the lower
and upper floors. James Klrkwood as
Canby, Al Holllngsworth as Bonham. May
McCabo as Mrs, Canby, Carol Ardcn, a
vory protty Bonlta, all handled their parts
ably and won favor, while tho small parts
by Miss Richards, Mr. Hearn, Mr. Pat
torson and Mr. Ayres were woll done.
"Arizona" has been played hundreds of
times, but It loses no Interest with fro
quent ropetltlon. The Grand salo is largo,
so tho week will probably bo a prosper
ous ono for the company.

Bowers, it wiil bo rcmombered, Is tho
mnn who Is wanted in Iowa to servo tlmo
for what 1b perhaps tho most wholosalo
chicken-stealing ovor executed In Amer

ion hired four negroes to rob hen rooats
while they shlppod out tho Bpolls in bar
rels and casfes to a hungry market. Whllo
out on recognizance he fled to Utah.
Yestorday morning Bowers's attorney
argued that tho court In Iowa did not how
hold Jurisdiction over tho man. This
argument was a bono of contention dur
ing tho proceedings. When tho lawyers
got through Judgo Lewis took tho view
thnt there was nothing to tho contention..
Thon tho court went on to rulo on another
ground. Ho said that thoro was no ovi
dence of a bench warrant having been is
sued for Bowers. He gavo tho prosecuting
attornoy until afternoon to show ovldonco
on this point.
The Telegram Came.
Tho wire was workod to Mount Ploas
nnt, la. But no reply came and Bowers
was freed yesterday afternoon. Just as
ho walked out of tho courtroom Chief
Lynch got a telegram from Iowa saying
that a bench warrant was out for Bow
ers. At the timo tho fugitlvo and his at
torney were going downstairs. Lynch
sent Patrolman Heath, who brought tho
telegram, to tho south door of tho court
house, thinking that Bowers would
emerge from that exit. But tho newly
freed man evidently caught wind of what
was doing and he doubled on his tracks,
hurrying to the north door.
Thero ho mot Chiof Lynch and Sheriff
Campbell of Iowa. Tho pair of officers
grcoted him pleasantly nnd eagerly. They
told him ho was again a prisoner. Thoy
Informed him about the bench warrant. '
"I want to see that telegram beforo I
am under arrest," said Bowers,
"Well, you won't sco tho telegram, and
you re under arrest now." snld Lynch.

a Great Success
Miss Margaret Whitney Produces
Hor Second Play in Eighteenth
A little opera was given last night
In tho Eighteenth Ward hall which In
many ways put to shamo moro ambi

road. It was thoroughly, delightful,
even In lta shortcomings.
The llbrettlflt and composer is Miss
Margaret Whitney, Just turned 15; tho
accompanist, Master Charley Shep
herd, a mite of a boy whose fingers
barely stretch an octave, and tho man
ager Is Martin Irwin Clawson. The
opera is presented with never a note or
a word having been put upon paper,
tho whole score having been taught
the entire cast by Miss Margaret "out
of her head." The tunes were sung to
Master Charley as they came to tho
librettist, and the young man then
composed accompaniments for each in
a way that proves unusual ability. He
is a brother of tho musician, Arthur

A NATURAL SANITARIUM.
What a Scientific Observer Has to

Lieut. John P. FIndley, while In
charge of the United States weather
bureau at San Francisco, contributed
an article to a prominent magazine on
the climatic conditions of California;''
In which tho following statement ap

This theoretical statement, from an

During the rainy eeason it Is usually

the result Is, except along some of tho
