: j Weather Director George N. Salls
ii bury of Seattle, who was director of
'j the local office from 1S91 to 1S94, made
jl the above observation yesterday nfter
i p j i:oon, after having spent a few days
; ,! . hfre on his way home from the East.
; I Dr. Hyatt Insisted that Director Salls
, ! Lury vns mistaken and was only uplng
;, the Illustration to bolster up his claim
J that Seattle now Is the best spot In the
I world. But to prove his statement, Mr.
,i Salisbury led Dr. Hyatt to the south
"' office In the weather department here.
'; and, sure enough, a haze hung over the
!j entire valley, making It Impossible to
see any great distance.
I Director Salisbury called Dr. Hyatt to
I ! j task for another shortcoming In affairs
j hereabouts the falling of the lake. Of
, this change, how'ever, Dr. Hyatt said
j;; he could prove himself not guilty, as
,'i the lake has risen n foot since the be
lli ginning of his regime,
j j Dr. Hyatt's Success.
The visiting director was a little taken
(' , hack when he found that Dr. Hyatt had
i been so successful In filling the cisterns
" 1 and lakes In this Immediate vicinity,
j but added that If the lake reached a
!!,. lower depth It Is only to be expected,
i , . I because with Irrigation large quantities

j T SEVEN TICKETS IN BUTTF.
t i -:
i! Editor of Heinze' Organ Predicts a
j, TVarm Election in Copper City.
1 , "Politics in Montana Is more mixed
i ' than ever before," said P. A. O.'Farrel
I j of Butte yesterday at the Wilson. Mr.
j'!' O'Farrel, who Is editor of the Reveille,
, j one of the Heinze newspapers in the
J ji big copper camp", made this cheerful an-
j'1 nouncement during a talk on general
.'ji conditions In Montana. Himself an nr-
pft. dent adherent of the young leader who
ir hat- made a long fight and a hard, fight
',' against the Amalgamated Copper com-
j pany, he believes firmly that the big
Standard Oil corporation is now In a
i jl tight fix.
'! "In Sliver Bow county we have six,
I; i no, let me see, seven tickets In the
(! field," said Mr. O'Farrel. "There ore
N i the Republicans, Democrats, anti-trust
1 I 1 Republicans, anti-trust Democrats, So-
l !! ciallat Democrats, National Socialists,
S and Labor parties, all out for places on

; ij will not be closely drawn when It comes
i ; !! to electing State ofTlces. The local ls-
, 1 11 sues will prevent that. And the Demo-
;,! ;'. cratlc ticket will win out In the State.
,, l . n i "The Democratic ticket will win out
because It is a Heinze ticket. The pco-
bS pie are tired of the other faction. The
'All closing down of the big Washoe smel-
; , " ler did more to hurt the Amalgamated
' than anything- else. Things are very
n lively In Silver Bow- countv. Butte Is
' teeming with excitement. It will be a
I 1 : '; warm election."

State Street Will
Council May Also Decide to Build
Stone Cross-Walks Doctor
State street Is to be macadumlzed, as
soon as the street supervisor can com
mence the work, from Fourth South to
Tenth South. A petition was received at
the meeting last night from Gus Klenke
and other residents on that street ask
ing that the work be done, and at the
same time a communication was re
ceived from Street Supervisor Seddon
asking for $600 (o do the work on the
west side. Acting upon ihc communica
tion the Council appropriated the mo
ney. Councilman Black was the only
objector. He took the stand that JG00
would be entirely Insufficient and that
he thought the Council would be let in
for a much greater expense before the
work was completed.
A resolution by councilman iiooaay
wa9 passed calling upon the City Audi
tor to furnish Information to the Coun
cil as- to the name of the party who Is
and has been for the la.vt few months,
drawing the salary of deputy city audi
tor. A resolution by Councilman E. H.
Davis to put In stone crosswalks all
over the city where cement sidewalks
are laid, caused no little discussion nnd
was finally referred to the city engineer
to find out what the cost of the pro
po.fed Improvement vould be. The res
olution called for a maximum expensre
of 5H0 for each crossing and ordered
the street supervisor to prococd with
the work at once.
Councilman Fernstrom made a mo
tion to refer the matter to the city en
gineer In order to find out what the
probable cost of this Improvement
would be. He pointed out that the
Council had already voted to pay out
some J80.000 out of the street funds this
year, and he was afraid that this pro
ppsal of Councilman Davis would let
the city In for more than It could af
ford. Councilman Martin agreed with
E. H. Davis, that It was a very neces
sary Improvement, even If It would be
expensive. It was argued that people
who had paid for paved sidewalks
ought to have the full value of them.
In not having to walk In the mud at
Councilman "Welle wno heartily In ac
cord with any obstacle to the proposed
Improvement. Councilman Fernstrom
then said that he was not opposed to
the improvement, but he thought the
city ought to know what the cost was
going to be. It was voted by a majority
of eight to six to refer the matter to
the city engineer.
Councilman E. H. Davis also proposed
a resolution to appropriate $200 to the
credit of the chief of the fire department
to make necessary Improvements at
fire station No. 2. The resolution was
A communication was received from
the chief of the fire department to the
effect that the turning of the arc lights
at the street corners, which had been
voted on last Monday, would cost $200.
At the time the resolution was passed
It was stated that It would not cost
anything. The matter was referred to
J. M. Erlcson submitted a petition to
the Council to put In a smokeless fur
nace at the city hall at a cost of $200.
The city attorney wrote a letter to the
Council recommending that the bill ow
ing to Dr. C. M. Benedict for $60.30
should be paid. The claim had been
Mibmlttcd to the Council and turned
down. Dr. Benedict then took the case
to the City court and won it without
difficulty. There was no defense possi
ble, said the city attorney, as the money
was due. "With much reluctance the
blil was ordered paid.
The Council confirmed the appoint
ment by the Mayor of Dr. S. C. Baldwin
as a member of the Board of Health
In place of Frederick G. Lyon, who re
signed some time ago, and of "William

directors of the free public library, In
place of Alfales Young, the late presi
dent. ? IfclWI
The Utah Light and Railway company
has asked for an extension of Its fran
chise to build trackt? along U street,
from Third to South Temple, and
thence along Thirteenth East to Fifth
South. The only reason offered why
the petition should be granted was that
there had been so much other construc
tion under way tint It had been Impos
sible to proceed with this particular
line. The extension asked was until Oc
tober 2, 1905. The petition was referred

Col. Wall Writes a
Friction Between City En

President Wall Intimates That His
Brother Officials Aro Trying to
Delay the Work.
Brigham btrect and Its much mooted
pavement has boon the cause of grow
ing friction between the Board of Pub
lic "Works and the city engineer which
canje to a head last night. A letter
was received at the Council meeting
from Col. Wall, the chairman of the
Board, In which he declines to renew
his bond for W0.000 to Indemnify the
city agalnit claims for damages on ac
count of Improvement. This bids fair
to cither Indefinitely postpone or en
tirely defeat the plan for the paving of
This communication from Col. Wall
enclosed a letter he had received from
City Engineer Snow, nnd this. In turn,
enclosed a copy of the letter which the
city engineer wrote to the Council last
Strict Compliance Impossible.
The letter from City Engineer Snow
to the Board of Public Works iys that
a strict compliance with the resolution
of the Council had been found Impos
sible and that certain changes were go
ing to be recommended to the Council.
It said also that It would be Impossible
for that office to furnish the necessary
lines and grades to the contractor un
til some definite plan of procedure was
adopted. Enclosed In this letter was
one recommending to the Council the
changes which were necessary In the
opinion of the city engineer, such ns the
walls at the approaches to A, B and C
streets, etc., to be abandoned, the drain
age from A, B and C streets by covered
culverts to catch basins on the main
roadway and thence by diagonal closed
drains to the nearest points on the cross
streets running south, minor details as
to s.treet Intersections to be worked
out for each case; sidewalk grades on
both sides of the streets to remain un
changed. The city engineer goes on to say that
this plan was not. In his opinion, the
best, yet In view of the restrictions
placed upon the Board of "Works and
himself by the Council, Its adoption was
recommended. He added that thee
changes might affect the validity of the
bond furnished by Col. "Wall In the mat
ter of damages to abutting property
Col. "Wall's reply Is quoted In full:
Col. "Wall's Letter.
I am also advised that tho Council at Its
session on tho evening of October 7, act
ing upon tho request In said letter
contained, referred tho subject matter
thereof to the Commltteo on Engineering,
and that said committee has agreed to re
turn favorable report thereon, upon con
dition, however, that tho undersigned and

p.000. to hold tho city of Salt Lake harm
less ln the event that any aggrieved
property ownor upon said street shall pro
cure Judgment against said city In any
action brought on account of alleged dam
age to abutting property by reason of tho
carrying Into effect of said proposed
changes or modifications
I have also boen favored by the hand
of the assistant city onglneer with a care
fully prepared form of bond designed to
cover any liability which might result
from the causo indicated, etc.. to all of
which I beg to say that I had hoped that
there would be no further attempts to
pestpone or defeat the work of paving
that unfortunate street
I know tho property owners have long
becomo weary and disheartened over
fruitless efforts to secure the Improve
ment upon some plan not destructive of
their Interests or a menace to their com
fort, and I am sure that your honorable
body, ln Its long and patient struggle to
discover Just -what tho people wanted and
to wisely discriminate between that and
what would best subserve the Interests of
all. has been taxed to the limit of endur
ance; and yet your efforts have nil boen
In vain If It be true, as stated by the City
Engineer, "that a strict compliance with
the resolution of tho City Council as to
the plans upon which this work Is to be
dono In Impossible," and moreover, that
"In view of these facts . . . grade llneB
cannot be furnished to tho contractor un
til Bonn definite plan of procedure Is
Now, assuming that your honorable
body stilt desiring lo promoto this much
needed Improvement shall approve this
"new plan," and that then, believing as I
do, that tho change Involves additional
and dangerous risks, should I plaoo my
neck ln the halter provided by this now
bdnd? I think not. 1 must decline, and
thoreupon may bo accomplished the real
deBlred purpose of this new plan, namely.
Indefinite postponement or defeat of thu
My reasons for declining lo furnish this
bond may be stated In a few words. It
will be remembered that at tho time of
the adoption of tho established plan It
was conceded that tho only difference be
tween the plan adopted and that proposed
by the City Engineer for the south
sldo of the street, was that the till pro
poecd by the City Engineer was six Inches
less than that proposed by tho Board of
Public Works, and that this excess of fill
was objected to by several property own
ers present, and It was then dcalarod by
the City Engineer that If adopted property
rights would bo destroyed and dlro calam
ity would ensue; therefore, to allay those
fears, and hoping thereby to harmonize
all differences, tho plnn proposed by City
Engineer Snow was accepted and adopted
for tho south sldo of tho street, and Is the
grado upon which the contractor Is now
at work. Tho proposed new grade lino Is
stated to be about eight Inches higher
than the established grade, thus Involving
a fill two Inchon greater than that pro
posed by myself and Indorsed by the
Board of Public Works, and which was
abandoned as before stated, ln favor of
tho lesser "fill" proposed by the Cltv En
gineer, and now, aftor having declared
the established plan "Impracticable and
Impossible of execution," we aro offered
a. Bo-called now plan precisely similar In
every essential detail to your established
plan, so far as tho portions of the street
to bo paved are concerned; but on condi
tion only that I shall become sponsor for
Its favorable reception by all property
owner, many of vMioni, by tho persistent
activity of Its author, hnvo become In
flamed against a less harmful measure. .
But 1 do not wish lo bi understood as
agreeing that any harm would result to
property Interests from (he adoption of a
111! evon greater than Hint proposed In
this new plan; on th contrary, J think
an Increased fill would materially benollt
property owners on both Hides of the
street and at the same llmo pornilt a re
duction In tho angle or Hlopo between lh
railway lines In the center of the street,
but this Is a detull the adjustment of
which f believe to hi wholly within the
discretion conferred Jointly upon tho
city engineer and tho Hoard of Public
Works by your resolution oalabllahlng
tho plan of grade we are now seoklng
lo carry out, and thla view was entirely
concurred In by Engineer Snow In our
conversation referred to In his letter to
your honorablo body, and It was moreover
distinctly agreed by Mr. Snow that no
requeHt for further authority or Instruc
tion was necessary or should be mado lo
tho honorable council or tho property
owners pertaining In any manner to tho
roinploto construction of tho work In
Mr. C. I'. BrookH was (by Invitation of
Mr. Snow) present nnd participated In
(he conversation or consultation referred
to. and then nnd there expressed unquali
fied approval of your eslabllohed plan
without any mollification whatever, and
this approval Included all Incidental
Mr. Snow frequently expressed a de
sire that the work bo postponed until
next year. There are others of the same
mind. The Hon. Spencor Clawson. ex
chalnnan of the Board of Public Works,
evidently desires that the street shall not
bo naved at all. and ln pursuance of an
ovldunt determination to compass that
result aftor a bond had been prepared by
the Utah Savings & Trust company In
conformity with the provisions of the
ordinance of tho honorable Council es
tablishing tno place upon wnicn worK
Is now In progress, made personal appeal
to Mr. Wicks and others officers of that
company, and by reason of the great
risk urged upon them the necessity of
obtaining additional security, well know
ing that no other property owner could
be found willing to assume the obliga
tions Imposed by said bond, but the bond
was executed JUiit the same, and I have
no deslro to shirk or evade Its posslblo
ponaltles. I am not willing to bellovo
that your honorable body desires to re
open this vexed subject or to give coun
tenance to methods which can have but
ono object, viz.. only to defeat or delay
the completion of this Important work
Work Is now progressing as rapidly as
conditions will penult. The tracks of tho
City Hallway company's lines are. how
ever, grcatlv In the way, and If removed,

ance with a recent request of the Board
of Public Works, our progress will bo

THIEF STEALS A
Daring Crime in Broad
Took the Timepieces From
Show Window, and Got
Two Residences Entered and Robbed
on Sunday NightRoth Were
Nearly all kinds of robbers are plying
their vocation In Salt Lake, it would
seem. The gentleman hold-up Is not
alone In the field. Some of the thlcveo
are decidedly ungentlemanly In their
conduct, but nil meet with uniform suc
cess In getting what they go after and
In escaping apprehension.
Took Twelve "Watchos.
One of the most daring of the long
list of recent robberies was perpetrated
shortly after the noon hour yesterday,
when a sncakthlef rushed behind the
counter of the Deseret Commission
company's store, 1 15 South "West Temple
street, grabbed from a tray ln the show
window nn even dozen of watches, of
the total value of, about J65, and made
his escape before the proprietor and a
lady clerk, who were In the store at the
time, realized what had happened.
"When the man walked Into the" north
entrance of tho store he carried, as a
blind, a piece of Iron broken from an
old stove, which was wrapped In a
newspaper. C. W. Bouton, the proprie
tor, was at the time waiting on a cus
tomer, Just through the archway which
connects the north and south rooms oc
cupied by the store. He was not more
than fifteen feet from where the thief
had to pass to get behind the counter,
but he was so busily engaged that he
did not notice him.
Young Lady Saw H.im.
The young lady clerk was on the bal
cony In the rear end of the store room
She saw the stranger enter with his
bundle and presumed that he was a
customer. She was about to descend to
wait upon him when he dodged behind
the counter, which extends nearly half
the length of the room, ran on tip-toe
to the front window, scooped up the
twelve watches In his hands and dodged
bnck again. This was done so quickly
that the young lady did not realize what
he was doing until he had. rounded the
end of the counter on the return trip.
Then she shouted to him-
Did Not Drop Them.
"Put down those watches!"
"All right," he said. But he didn't
drop the watches. He left only the
worthless stove casting, which he had
laid on the counter when he went after
tho timepieces. With the exception of
one, the watches were all new Wal
thams and Elglns.
The young lady ran after the thief as
I fast as she could, but when she reached
the front door she caught only a
glimpse of him as he mingled with the
crowd near the corner of West Temple
and Second South streets. The young
woman described him ns a man of me
dium height, rather slender, smoothly
shaven, and wearing a dirty-looking
suit of light clothes. The police were
notllled, but no trace of the culprit was
