DID LITTLE BOY LIE?.
Friend of Bement Pamily Says They
Have Been Misrepresented.
A. short time aero appeared the ac
count of a sniuQ boy at the police sta
tion, his crime being that of taking: a
wagon from In front of a store and at
tempting to dispose of the goodn. He
fell asleep ut the station beside a
little clog, which he had ulso acquired In
a questionable manner. Before doing
so, he made the assertion that ho wished
the authorities -would send him to
the reform school, as he was abused at
home. Now comes a friend of the family
who claliny that the boy lma a vivid
his tale of woe. The article In ques
tion appeared September -30, telling of
the arrest of Douglas Bement, aifd his
story of mistreatment.
"As a person lntimattly acquainted
with the facte In. the case," said the
friend of the family to which Master
Bement belongs, "I should llko to ay
a few wordy. The child told a pathetic
story of mistreatment, to which the po
lice and reporters 'gave- a sympathetic
ear. 1 should like to say that he never
really received a severe punishment In
his life, and the story of his being-horse-whipped
was an absolute falye
hood. "Since-he hay been, old enough to go
anywhere, he hits been a source of con
tinual annoyance and worry to the
family, who hardly ever knew his
w hereabouts from morning- until night.
He told at the station of his preferring
the reform school to returning home.
When he did reaeh home that night his
mind had undergone a very radlcul
"The family deserves some considera
tion In' another way The child is
no connection of theirs, and yeL they
have fed. clothed and cared for him for
almost nine years, with no help from
his relatives, although he lias a great

wealth and influence. Tils father and
mother are alive, and yet the dlsgraco
of this aiTair falls upon this family who
have done their best to bring him up In
the wuy he should go."
WOOL GROWERS IN LUCK.
Wool Purchased on Sheep's 3ack at
an Advanced Prico.
Wool growers of L'tah and Idaho we
good tlmey ahead for next year. East
ern buyers being already 1n the Held
in great numbers contracting, for the
1905 clip at prices from 2 to 6. cents In
advance of the prices paid this year.
Offers of 5 cents a pound were mude
tight from tht start, and a few ranch
men have disposed of their next season's
wool crop at 18 cents. The ruling price
this year was from 12Vs to 13Vj cents.
It Is not apparent that anyone lu
gelling a corner on the market, for
all of the old-time firms and some new
ones have buyers In the Held. It Is evi
dent, however, that the 1903 wool crop
will be owned by the middlemen long
befqre it leaves the sheep's backs. The
buyers are preserving discreet silence
In regard to the cause of their
anxiety to lake chances on the future of
tho wool market, at advanced prices,
but it la only natural that the high price
of cotton should tend to increase the de
mand for wool, while the continued war
lu the far East is also doubtless having
some effect. Considering the fine con
dition In which Utah sheep will enter
the winter the coming year promises to
be prosperous, indeed, for the flock-owners.

On a number of occasions during the

and while he has several times seen
thlP or some other bear, has never been
prepared to take the chance of killing
him. Ytrterdny, however, Mr. Bentrod
started out with a 30-20 Winchester, and,
after a little walk, ran upon the bear
just nl the edge of the foothills, only
about three blocks from Fnrmlngton.
The big fellow was standing on his hind
legs, evidently picking yome berries
from the bushes which grow thickly
along the edge of the hills. At the first

the following resolution was unanimous
lu view of the awful struggle which has

our Government the great Importance of
taking such steps as will bring about
peaceful arbitration by which all na
tional differences may be settled without
tho resort to arms.
Second. That this resolution be forward

Settlement of the asRhalt proposition,

The Commltte on Sewers met to con
sider the protests against sewer exten
sion No. 132 In dlslrift No. 1. The op
position failed to show up in suulll
cient strength, so the report was turned
buck to the Council for action.
Councilman Barnes represented the
protesting parties. He claimed that be
tween Seventh and Tenth East streets,
the proposed extension going out that
far, there are a number of poor people
who have objected to the extension on
the ground that they could not afford
the extension. He said that the sewers
would tost them "o much that some of
them were In danger of losing their
homes, as they had been Informed that
they would be txild out to pay for the
cost of making the extension.
Councilman Black expressed himself
strongly on the subject of people who
preferred to go on In the old unhealthy
way rather than pay for the cost of a
sewer, which Is an absolute- necessity In
"We ought to have an ordinance," he
said, preventing any new houses being
built unless they are connected with the
