I' Few men havo bad as many trials as
,( Gcorgo A. Bates, a Tooclp county ranch-
, man. But lio Is a. man of few convictions.
Ills third trial was finished yesterday In
! the District court and ended, as did tho
previous trials, with a hung jury. At hie
, first trial three men hung out for a. con-
1 -vlctlon. At tho cccond only two Jurors
thought Bates. guilty. Yesterday tho Jury
was hung by ono man. At this rate James
! F. Smith, Bates's attorney, figures that
, I hip client will finally bo acquitted If ho
i . 1 lives long enough. Tho fourth trial Is
, scheduled to begin December 5.
' i Case Is a Landmark.
, So familiar has tho State vs. Bates bc-
. como that It Is rogardod as ono of tho
landmarks of tho county Tho farmers
'' havo como to regard Jury fees In tho Bates
' ! caso as a regular part of their annual rev-
onuo. "When they dlo they feel sure that

But Attornoy Smith threatens to upset
1 their calculations. 1,1b says ho is going to
1 ink a chango of venuo to Salt Lako coun-
, ty for tho noxt trial.
I ,! His Alleged Crime.
" Bates was arrested June 12, 3C03, for
stealing- three horses belonging to tho
l j Utnli Construction company. It was al-
, leged that he took tho animals to Ogdcn
I and sold them thero to one C. O. Moroy.
The defense" was that Bates had put two
horses In a corral on his ranch to look at
their brands. After examining them, ho
Claimed, ho turned them loose. Moroy and
Sheriff Bailoy of Wobcr county both testi
fied that he sold the horses In Ogden. Tho
1 defense Introduced six witnesses who
swore that Bates was In Tooelo county on
the day tho horses were sold. Thero "was
considerable conflict In tho testimony on
loth sides. Attorney Smith says Uiat
,', Tooelo people are prejudiced against his
i 1 client because ho was onco convicted of
j stealing a calf.
' , Minority Vote Decreasing-,
j Bates was first tried In June, 1W3. when
' the Jury voted live for acquittal and thrco
S for conviction. Tn February, 1901. tho scc-
j ond trial was pulled off. and the jury stood
J fix to two. At tho last trial but one of
j I lie eight men insisted on tho guilt of tho
j defendant. Bates has been out on bond
i most of the tlmo slnco his arrest.

lie Was Tried in
Utah for Murder
H. H. Pearson Has a Hot Time Dodging-
His Former Attorney in
The story of an Ineffectual attempt to
arrest on board a steamer at Honolulu a
man tried for murder In Utah In lSeo, Is
told In a recent number of tho Pacific
Commercial Advertiser, published In Hon
olulu. Tho attempted arrest was not on
account of the alleged murder. In a direct
way, but was the result of tho man's
failure to pay tho lawyer who defended
him at tho trial.
The culprit was IT. II. Pearson, and
the attorney who sworo out the warrant
against him at Honolulu was Judgo
Henry 13. Hlchton, formerly of San
Francisco. Hiuhton claims that In 1SS6
ho was llvlncr at the Baldwin hotol In
San Francisco, which was at that lime
kept by H.'lL Pearson's father. The
youncer Pearson was then on a cattle
ranch Jn Utah. Pearson and a compan
ion made a trip from tho ranch to the
town of Provo, and It is aliened that
during a period of intoxication Pearson
shot and killed his companion. He w;ls
arrested and triod for murder before
.Tnrl Tfnnrlnrcnn ll,r. i.rnur..itlnn lin vlnrr
been handled by Jtulgo "W. IT. Dickson.
Judgo Hlghton says ho was asked by
Pearson's father and mother to so to
Utah to defend their son. and that he
went to Utah and expended several thou
sand dollaru on tho case, for no part of
which was he ever reimbursed. Tho trial
lasted for seven week's nnd tho result
was a verdict of involuntary man
slaughter, sentence having been suspend
ed for ono year. This gave Pearson hl3
According to the Honolulu newspaper.
Pearwon for some tlmo led an adventur
ous life In tho Pacific Islands, but moro
recently has been In tho employ of an
Kastom bank, from which ho Is accredit
ed with receiving a largo salary. On tho
occasion of his attempted arrest at Hono
lulu he was on tho way to San Francisco
from a trip around tho world. Ho had
mado a great display of wealth on board
tho steamer, It Is said, and when Judgo
Hlchton heard of this ho determined to
make an effort to secure the monoy so
long duo him for legal services. He ad
dressed a noto to Pearson and sent It to
tho stcjimor by a dotcctlvo as soon as
tho vessel arrived at Honolulu. Tho ad
dressee claimed to havo no knowledge of
Judge Hlchton, saying it was a caso of
mistaken identity. Then Hlghton wont
ho declared was his former client. Tho
Judco was whisked up town In a hack,
papers wero secured and a doputv sheriff
went to the steamer to arrest Pearson.
But no Pearson was to bo found. Tho
stateroom, for which ho had paid $400
extra to be In a particular location, was
vacant- The vessel was searched from
stem to stern and from top to bottom,
tho officers oven going with tho steamer
until the pilot was dropped, but Pearson
was not apprehended, nor was the slight
est clue to his whereabouts obtained. Tho
deputy sheriff loft a copy of the sum
mons with a man who was temporarily
occupying Pear ion's stateroom.
Judgo Dickson, when asked lust night In
regard to the Pearson murder case, said he
remembered It very well, although ho
could not recall the namo of the man who
was killed. Pearson and this young man
had been on a epreo together, and the
killing was tho result of a drunken quar
rel. Pearson was tried at Provo, and
Judge Hlghton defended him alone, so far
as the legal work was concerned. Friends
put in good work for tho accused, how
over, and tho Jury, largely In consideration
of tho showing that both young men wero
very drunk when tho killing occurred, dis
played mercy to tho extent of finding
Pearson guilty only of voluntary man
slaughter Tho Juugo has heard nothing
concerning Pearson slnco ho was par
doned, very soon after the trial.

ATTIAS OUT ON BOND.
Western Federation of Miners Be
comes Surety for Greek Physician.
Dr. P. G. P. Attlas was arrested yester
day morning by Deputy Sheriff Booth on
tho charge of practicing medicine without
a license, preferred against him by Leon
Skllrls. Skllrls Is this man whose income
by handling Greek laborers for tho
smelters and railroads Is imperiled by tho
fact that the Greeks have organized and
are now allied with the Western Federa
tion of Miners. This has been largely ac
complished through Attlas, acting In con
junction vrlth A- W. Charter of tho fed
eration. Dr. Attlas was released last evening on
bonds furnished bv the American Federa
tion of Labor. Ho was arrested In his
apartments In a First South street lodging-house.
Mr. Charter was with him at
the time. Dr. Attla-s and tho deputy pro
ceeded at onco to the county Jail, whero
Dr. Attlas. remained until a meeting of
tho officers of tho federation In this city
was called. Then he was taken to Bing
ham, whero he appeared before J. J. "Wil
liams, the Justlco of tho Peaco befoio
whom Skllrls sworo out his warrant.
Concerning his arrest and the allegations
that ho has been hiding, Dr. Attlas said:
"I havo no cause to fear this trumped
up charge. It Is made with a vlow to bin
der me In my work with the organization
of the Greeks. It was a last resort. I
moved to tho rooms where I was arrested
In order that I might bo able. to finish
certain work In connection with this or
ganization, work wmcn must bo dono
without possibility of hindrance.
"So far as Skllrls Is concerned, ho la
welcome to bring up anything he can find
against me. I havo no causo to fear the
publicity of my past history. I hppc ho
does not fear tho samo thing, for If he
does, things may turn out unplcasantlv
for him. I can oay this: Skllrls's connec
tion with the labor problem In Utah Is now
subject to searching investigation and
action will follow this investigation.
"I will further say that neither this ar
rest nor any other steps which Skllrls and
tho Deseret Is'ows may chooso to attempt
will atop my work In behalf of my coun
trymen." A. "W. Charter was equally vigorous In
hla assertions as to Dr. Atlias's connec
tion with tho organization work. "The ar
rest," said he. "was mado as a result of a
warrant sworn out by Skllrls. and the
warrant was Issued to hurt Dr. Attlas
with his countrymen and with tho officers
of tho federation. In regard to the latter
It has signally failed. And, so far as the
Greeks aro concerned, I personally know
that many proffers of assistance In the
way of bail camo to Dr. Attlas during the
day. These, however, he refused, pre
ferring to gain his liberty through th
bond which the federation will furnish "

at $100 cash This was Immediately fur
nished by tlm officials of tho Western

porary Injunction, which was Issued some
time aco to restrain the company from
closing up that street, a permanent one.
This ends a lone and determined fight
which the property owners have mado
against the proposed work which tho Rio
Grande would havo had to do in order to
build a new depot. Tho grunting of tho
franchise by tho Council was bitterly
contested, and when this endeavor proved
to be futile the mattor was taken to the
courts on tho cround that the closing
of the street would Injure tho property
owners. A temporary Injunction was
granted and the affair was allowed to
rest for a while. But tho case camo up
to be disposed of yesterday and that In
junction was mado permanent.
It is made against the Rio Grande
Western Railway company and the City
Council of Salt Lake. It forbids the
former from closlnc the said street and
It forbids the Council to allow tho com
pany to close It.

SALT LAKE THEATER Concert by
Emma Lucy Gates and tho Salt Lako
Symphony Orel stra.
GRAND THEATER "Tho Sign of the
Four," a dramatization of Conan Doyle's
novel of that name.
Ono of Utah's most gifted singers was
heard In Salt Lake last night. An audi
ence, large, but not so largo as the con
cert deserved, listened with delight to
Emma Lucy Gates. Sho received an en
thusiastic welcome. In that welcome was
oxprcsscd admiration for a girl of Utah, a
girl of talent who with commendable am
bition has prepared herself for a notable
Miss Gatea's numbers wero sufficiently
varied to reveal all tho qualities of her
voice, ranging as they did from grand
opera selections to a lively French Bong.
Hor range was shown In the aria from
"Lucia de Lammermoor." as was tho pur
ity of all hor tones, the trilling being clear
and sweet and admirably done. The qual
ity of brilliancy was best shown in tho
French song. "La Feo aux Chansons." An
East Indian song, quaint and fantastic,
wnu ViT-lfh lvr rAnilnpml thn- ....... ,.l
vaclty In tho humorous number, "To My
First -Love," though this was not ono of
the most pleasing. In songs that depend
much upon expression, upon the manifes
tation of tender feeling, Miss Gates was
not so satisfying. In "L'Enfant" and the
"Serenade," by Gounod, sho did not mani
fest tho expected warmth and fervor.
There was a certain coldnuss in her tones
In these songs that may havo been due to
a diffidence that held her archness and
warmth In reserve. It Is a trying experi
ence for an artist to come beforo a homo
audience. Its inlluenco often enforces a
restraint of feeling that Is not checked
elsewhere. There was ,a noticeable de
mureness In tho young singer's manner
last night, which, whllo charming to see,
may have Indicated a lack of perfect con
trol, duo to tho very fact that sho was
among friends, friends who expected so
much of her. There was manifest a sense
of sureness, however. In her closing num
ber, the "Mlchacla" aria from "Carmen,"
in which her rare volco was swcot and
strong and sho was the artist triumphant,
Sho had been enthusiastically applauded
for every number, but at tho close of tho
"Carmen" selection camo a storm that
would not bo stilled until she went to the
piano and to her own accompanlmont
sang "The Bloom is on tho Rye."
Tho Symphony orchestra was an organ
ization to be proud of last night. With a
strength of forty mombors it furnished
enough music to show that It Is capable
of great things. Its "Oberon" overture
was delightful, to many undoubtedly tho
most delightful of Its numbers. Tho unlquo
"Slavonic Dance" was admlrablv glvon.
the "Ronde D' Amour" was so daintily nnd
captlvatlngly played that the orchestra
had to repeat it, tho selection from "Tho
Queen of Sheba." with tho buzzing of tho
bees, charmed, and tho march, "Pomp and
Circumstance,-" stirred and oxhllorated.
Mr. Flashman's fiuto obllgato for MJss
Gates's "Serenade." was very sweet. Mr.
Shophord accompanied Miss Gates In her
songs, faultlessly, of course.
Rev. Mr. Goshen mado an earnest ox
hortatlon for support of tho orchestra,
and as ho had a good anecdoto which ho
could not very well use In tho pulpit, ho
took tho opportunity to send It among Uio
people from tho stage.

Robson, will bo at tho Salt Lako Theater

not disappointed. In tho dramatization
soveral liberties are taken with the play

not detract In tho least from Its interest
There Is too much horse plav in one or
two of tho acts, tho love-making of Mrs
Hudson in the second and the sccno be

closing act being altogether tiresome. On
tho whole however, tho play was capably
