Employment Agents
Are Blamed,
Teamsters Shipped to the
Front Have Neither Work
Nor Money.
Agent Says That lion "Wero Sent Only
A3 Far As Modena and Aro
California Bound.
I!
Persistent complaints come from Call
ento of the groat number of laborers
stranded there, who, It Is alleged, have
been sent by an employment agency with
offices Jn this city and Ogden, with the
assurance that there would bo work for
them at tho front. This work continues
to go on, It 13 said. In Bplto of the fact
that tho San Pedro road has within the
last thirty daya repeatedly notified the
employment agencies that no more men
wero needed. A correspondent of The
Trlbuno says:
No Money Nor "Work.
"Callente Is now overrun with these un
fortunates, who have paid 'their money to
employment agencies and can get nolther
way out of tho country. Among those
who camo In last night and are without
money or work arc Charlos B, Yorks, who
was shipped as teamster; L. J. Hay-
Iwarcl and George Fortune, snipped aa
teamsters; "William H. Harrison, shipped
; to Modena and carried through by tho
conductor; George Mlddlcton. shipped to
front aa toamster; Albert Dixon and Fred
1 Miller, shipped as teamsters; George
Reynolds, shipped as teamster, and "Wil
liam Thomas, shipped to front aa team
ster. All were shipped October 28 by Dix
on & Co. of Salt Lako City These men
aro out the SJ.EO which was taken from
them with a guarantee of positions, and
they are- penniless and In hard clrcum
1 stances."
Were Sent to Modena.
I, The manager of Dixon & Co.'s office In
this city, when shown the above state
ment, admitted that tho men had been
sent out by his firm, but claimed that
they wore all sent to Modena in response
to a telegram from a contractor at that
point advising them thut twenty team
Mora were wanted.
"We have not sent any men to the
front for nearly a month," said the man
ager, "and wo have sent out no men ex
cept uioii request of contractors. AV
could not afford to do business any other
way. It standi to reason that we could
not get passes for our men unless the
railroad company was advised that thoy
were needed. T do not know where the
fault lies for so many men being stranded
at Callente. but It Is certainly not with us.
Men Fool Themselves.
"Ono tiling that we cannot escapo Is men
applying for .-fobs who want to get to Cal
ifornia and Imagine that after securing
transportation to the farthest point possi
ble on the San Pedro line they can work
their way the remainder of the distance.
These men are very frequently disap
pointed and then the only thing th-y can
t think of to do Is to abuse the employ
ment agencies. It Is very likely that this
Is the trouble with most of the men who
are without Jobs In Callente. We can
show authority for having sent out every
man who has gone from this office."
II BANQUETED THE ALUMNI.
I Sisters of St. Mary's Academy Fur-
I nish a Delightful Entertainment.
Members of the Alumni association
1 of St. Mary's academy were last even-
1 Ing the guests of honor at an elaborate
banquet at the academy, the sisters be
ing the hostesses. Chrysanthemums,
yellow and white, were used in the
very effective table decorations, a mass
of the flowers rising from a bed of
l)lilmosa. At either end of the long
: table was a crystal candelabrum,
shaded In yellow, while tall vases of
chrysanthemums were seen on mantel
and lables. Rev. Father Klely acted
ns toastmaster.
! Miss PhmihofC responded to the toast
"Our Clergy and Our Alma Mater,"
and Miss McDonald to the toast "As
Others See Us." In addition to these
toasts, several Impromptu ones were
jjlvcn by the guests, including a pleas
ant one by Rev. Father Gulnan, presi
dent of All Hallows college.- Souvenirs
were found at the plate of each guest,
a pale blue satin bookmark, with a re
production of some of the famous sa
cred paintings. Preceding the banquet
a most enjoyable literary and musical
programme was rendered by some of
I the students of the academy. Including
the Misses- Malum, Cosgrove. Medic,
Kane, Guthrie, J. McCue and Gott
steln. The closing number, a. vocal duct, by
the Misses Malian and McCue, "The.
Music Trial." was an especially pleas
ing one. and the young ladles received
J tho most enthusiastic applause of the
j evening.
I After the banquet, the annual busl-
I ncss meeting was held, when the fol-
lowing officers were elected for the en-
suing year: Miss Mona McHugh,
president: Miss Martha PlumhofT
vice-president; Miss Helen Santschf

I Cecil Rhodes Scholarships.
I The qualifying examinations for the
Cecil Rhodes Oxford scholarships will
be held throughout the United States
n6t later than the middle of January
next. That decision was recently made
: by Dr. Parkinson because of the great
delay which occurred last year In get
ting returns from some committees of
election. As a result the distribution
of the American scholars throughout
the colleges of Oxford, according to
their own wishes, was greatly delayed.
The examinations for Utah will be held
at the university, as was the case last
year. All persons desiring to become
candidates should send their names at
once to Dr. .1. T. Kingsbury, president
of the State university.

ROB POLICEMAN?
Deceived . by Plain
Clothes.
Supposed Stick - Up Men
Had an Unlucky
Hunch. ,
Officer Sperry Got His Gun Out First
and Did tho Sticking .Up
Himself.
It was an unlucky hunch that
prompted Fred Morris and John Har
per to conceal themselves behind trees
on West Temple street, near Fourth
South, last evening for the supposed
purpose of "sticking up" Police Ofllcer
Sperry. who was passing along the
street in citizen's clothos. The minion
saw the suspected hold-ups first and
before Harper had an opportunity to
draw an ugly looking v-15-callber that
he carried, the officer had both men
covered with his own revolver and
compelled them to stand a search. Af
ter appropriating the highwayman's
weapon. Sperry handcuffed the pair
and marched them to police headquar
ters, where they will be held pending
an Investigation.
Men Were Skulking.
Sperry was on his way home about
10 o'clock last night and had just
crossed Fourth South on West Tem
ple street when he observed two men
skulking along behind trees a short
distance ahead of him. The officer was
attired in civilian clothes and he had
no difficult In approaching the two
men, who concealed themselves In the
darkness, presumably for the purpose
of holding him up.
"When within a few feet of the men.
Sperry drew his revolver and ordered
the men to elevate their hands. It
took the pair several seconds to grasp
the situation, but they obeyed without
dissent. Keeping the men well cov
ered. Sperry seareehd the pair, secur
ing a villainous looking 45-callber re
volver, with two chambers louded. He
then adjusted the "bracelets" and
marched the pair to police headquar
ters. Had Suspicious Property.
At the station they were thoroughly
searched and from the stuff found upon
them. It would seem that they are
either burglars or highwaymen. They
carried two extra hats, a small piece
of candle and a small white towel.
Harper wore a black shirt and had a
white collar fastened around Ills neck
outside of his shirt collar.
Neither of the prisoners was willing
to talk and answered the questions
fired at them in monosyllables. They
declared that they came to Salt Lake
yesterday morning from Ogden. They
offered no explanation for their unus
ual conduct. A charge of vagrancy
will be preferred against them pend
ing an investigation.

Now "Way of Using Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy.
Mr. Arthur Chapman, writing from
Durban, Natal, South Africa, saya: "As
a proof that Chamberlain's Cough Rem
edy Is a cure suitable for old and young,
I pen you the following: "A neighbor
of mine had a child Just over 2 months
old. It had a very bad cough and the
parents did not know what to give It. I
suggested that if they would get a bot
tle of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy and '
put some upon the dummy teat the baby
was sucking it would, no doubt, cure
the child. This they did and brought
about a quick relief and cured the
baby " This remedy Is for sale by all

How Public Funds Were
Used to Influence Salt
Lake Voters.
Gross Padding of Supervisor's Pay

chino Advantngo.
What a despicable political machine Is
now In control of Salt Lako county!
How desperately It Is striving to per
petuate Itself and keep tho taxpayers
from making an Investigation Into their
affairs and correcting the abuses!
Every scheme known to tho grafter
polltlclan and to tho smooth agents of
the church, who aro assisting the prcsont
rr.nchlne, are employed. They are work
ing unceasingly.
Their zeal Is tho only commcndablo part
of their work.
But tho taxpayers cannot hopo for re
lief unless thoy take advantago of tho
present fight and elect men to tho offices
that have been so shamofully abused,
who will straightway turn tho machlno
appointees out and Install a system that
Is based on honesty and good business
principles.
Tho Tribune has been pointing out tho
abuses for weeks, but thcro Is no possi
bility of going Into tho depths of tho mat
ter in the brief tlmo at hand. A few In
stances only may be mentioned.
Somo startling disclosures have boon
made. There are yet things to bo found
In tho county building that, wero It possl
blo to lay them bare before election day,
would so arouso tho honest men and wo
men of this city and county that they
would go to tho polls next Tuesday al
most In a body. And they would vote for
candidates who are In no wlso tied up
with those who would forco them to eon
tlnuo tbo whitewashing methods of James
H. Anderson nnd others, as In tho past.
Squandering Public Funds.
Let tho people of Salt Lako county for
a moment look at a fresh sample of tho
manner In which tho people's money Is
squandered and diverted Into such chan
nels as serve the Interests of tho present
Republican county machine.
We have shown, heretofore, that thcro
Is precious little to show for tho tre
mendous sum Hint Is collected each year
and disbursed by the Board of County
Commissioners.
Almost the entire amount goes to main
tain the machine In the way of salaries
and graft. Little permanent Improve
ments are made. Salaries. Interest and
rcr diem contracts amount into the hun
dreds of thousands!
A princely sum Is paid in each year.
This year the revenues will reach J3SG,03!
Whore does all that money go?
Interest and bonds paid will be ?23,J00.
Not $323,500. as the Deseret News said.
Pauper account. Including Items of all
kinds, about MSXtfO.
Betterments of all kinds, not to exceed
S35.000 .
Grafts and reckless expenditures, fully
SSO.O00'
Salaries and political appointments, the
balance.
January 1. 1903, will show a surplus In
the treasury several thousands smaller
than at the beginning of this year. Why?
Because the funds of the county havo
been used this year to continue the sume
polltlco-rellglo machine In power.
How Votes Are Landed.
Take a glimpse of one of the means
which the present administration has em
ployed to care for Its friends.
The work on the county dirt roads has
been ono of tho most striking oxamples
of tho power of tho latter-day politicians
exlnnL The office of road supervisor has
been prostituted to the ends of tho politi
cians. For weeks reports have come to tho
city of the unusual number of mon and
loams that has suddenly been employod
on tho county roads. The purposo of It
has been so palpably political that It has
attracted no end of comment.
Scores of mon woro employed at an
unseasonable time to repair the dirt roads.
They have hauled dirt horo and dumped
It there, have uprooted trees and dug
ditches that are, In somo casos, small
It has beon anything to give somo one
a Job. And the ones who havo been given
Jobs are. In large majority, men who are
the tools of tho politicians and tho com
mercial leaders of tho dominant church.
This has had a double purpose. The
public funds havo not only beon drawn
from tho public coffers and diverted Into
the channels of business controlled by the
Mormon hierarchy, but thoso giving the
employment woro enabled, nt public ex
pense, to put scores of voters under obli
gation to them to the reigning political
lcadors.
"Why This Extra Expense?
"Why should theic bo so many additional
men and teams on-ployed on the dirt roads
so late In tho season?
Will any mnn who Is skilled In road
making say that the late fall Is tho proper
time to work the roads?
Shouldn't thoy be worked early In tho
summer, so as to bo thoroughly packed
beforo tho snows and rains come?
But an election day Is coming as well
ns tho rains and snows! Tho adminis
tration of "Fussy Jimmy" and the un
savory record of "Rotten-Mutton Bill
Jones" must bo sustained.
Anderson Is one of tho high counselors

It would never do to uncover their of
ficial acts. It might reflect on somo one.
The treasury must bo raped to pay for
U10 floating -and tho doubtful element.
And that It was raped In painfully ap
parent. Tho bills of but few of tho supervisors
for tho month of October aro In. Thoy
como In clowly. Tho probability la this
Ih by design. They will all bo on file be
foro clestlon day and warrants Issued.
Too lato to be examined!
But tho reports that arc already in toll
a story of tho rocklosa misuse of tho
public funds that outshines In audacity"
tho work of thooo who havo so cloverly
Juggled the poor account.
Didn't Need Working Last Year.
In the first column in tho following
will bo found the amounts oxpondod in
fourteen of tho respective road districts
In October last year. Thore was no cause
to pad tho rolls at that tlmo. Th'ro was
a city election on, but no ono nan over
acousod iho present clique of Salt Luke
politicians of trying to elect tho Repub
lican tlckot Inst year! They did not mako
that tlckot. They laid down on It or
openly fought It.
They got busy this year.
Thore aro thirty-one rond supervisors
and a3 many districts. As has been said,
but fow of the reports aro In. Compari
son can only bo made on thoso that have
been received fourteen. Here Is the rec

Tho figures for tho fourteen districts
out of the thlrty-ono show that it cost
tho taxpayers ?3-H5.3G moro to work tho
roads this year, In tho single month of
October, than It did for tho 3amo month
Inst year, when no county ticket was to
be elected!
When the other scvontoon districts aro
in the people will know how cleverly the
political clique has raided tho treasury
for campaign purposes.
It Was a Clover Raid.
Should the other seventeen districts
show a proportionate Increase to tho
fourteen already heard from, it will mako
tho lncrcaso per district J240.10, and tho
total thIrt-one districts on this basis
of expenditures In October, 1901, over Oc
tober, 1003. of $7452 40
The total expenditures 3cor labor on
the roads in October, 1903, amounted
to S4, 134.53; in October, 1904, based
on the above figures, it "will amount
to SI 1,586.93. In other words it cost
S7452.40 more for rond labor in. Oc
tober, 1904, than it did in October,
1903.
It Is a fine system which "Fussy" Jim
my and Jody Eldrcdge havo bullded up
In Salt Lako county. It Is the kind that
catches the taxpayers coming and going.
Thoy would not lose control of tho ma
chinery of tho Commissioner's offlco for
anything. It is through this that thoy
dlMrlbutu the pie! It Is through tills that
tho coffers of the church aro enriched.
The people aro burdered with taxes to
pay for this political machine.
Thoy aro forced to lubrfcato the ma
chine. The general public gets very lit
tle returns. They aro not benefited by
permanent Improvements.
Thoy go to the County Treasurer's of
fice and put up their good money td
maintain a lot of clerkships which aro In
the most part the mainstays of the local
organization.
It is a prjlty bitter pill for tho aver
age man, but the turf is being torn up
to arouse the brethren to perpetuate the
organization.
Some ai-3 appealed to on religious lines.
Some aro appealed to on the grounds of
party loyalty.
When these men talk to a Gentile or a
liberal Mormon they pivscnt the card on
which is the American Eagle and the
picture of Theodore Roosevolt!
When they talk to tho brethren thoy
bring forward tho card on which Is a
picture of the Temple! The littlo game
Is worked with the cleverness of tho ex
perts in deception and political chicanery
that they are.
But tho men and women who pay their
taxes are the ones who keep the Ander-son-Eldredgc-Emcry
machine grciised.
What do they get for the grease?
