NO HELP FOR HER.
Woman Is Dying While City and
County Bandy Words.
In a sort of shed-kitchen affair, the
roof of which is propped up with scant
lings on the Inside a cold, squalid
room, wherein the most ordinary com
forts of life are unknown a woman
lies dying: of paralysis. Tho room In at
the rear of 117 South Fifth West street,
within a block of tho city hall. The
sick woman Is a Scandinavian, about
45 yeara old. Her husband Is a negro.
He Is a cook by trade, but he has been
cut of work for some time and Is un
able to secure medical attendance for
bis white wife. The case has been re
ported to the city authorities, but the
old difficulty Is encountered. The city
can do nothing, because It Is a county
cuse, and the county will do nothlnir
because it is very properly a city case.
And in the meantime the woman is
dying from luck of the most ordinary
attention. It may be that she has been
addicted to strong drink, that sho has
not the best kind of a record but she
Is human.
Living with this IlI-a.sforted pair of
helpless. Irresponsible ones Is a five-year-old
girl, said by the woman to be
her granddaughter. Tho condition of
this little one. In such surroundlncs,
with such companions, can be lm
aglned. perhaps It beggars description.
Must It not be horribly stunted In body
and mind If permitted to remain In
such a place? Is there no remedy In a
civilized community for such condi
tions? These are some of the ques
tions asked last night by persons who
heard of the case, but nothing- wus
done.
Home-Finding Beporc.
In her annual report to the board of
directors of the Utah Home Finding
association, Mrs. Stlckney said that

children admitted during the year have
been placed In good homes or provided
with employment.
Mrs. Stlckney set forth the needs of
tho Institution, chief of which Is a suit
able place to properly carry on the
work, suggesting a plot of ground of
five acres, and a building costing about
$25,000.
In submitting the report, the super
intendent also tendered the sincere
thanks of the association to all friends
who have aided In any way in carry
ing on the work.
The name of Mrs. J. C. McClaln. who

Mon of Mystery.
Mystery had surrounded the move
ments of several prominent men of
the First Methodist church during the
past few days, and it was not until yes
terday that the cause of their actions
was made known. They are to give a
"mystery" party at the First Methodist
church next Thursday evening and, as
men never tell any Eecrets, even their
wives haven't the slightest Idea of what
they are to suffer at the hands of tho
sterner sex. The entertainment Is to
be given for the benefit of the church,
and all arrangements for the evening's
pleasure, including the preparing of re
freshments, has been left in the hands
of committees composed entirely of
men- All church members and those
Interested In lenrnlng what a "mys
tery" parly Is, are most cordially welcome.
..AMUSEMENTS... j
A little Incident at the Grand Thoator
on the opening nlcht of the "Show Girl"
orcated as much amusement as anything
In the play, and Indicated In a way that
oven children who have not reached years
of understanding are tired of reference
to the Russo-Japanese war. After two
or thrco clever songs, ono of. the mem
bers of the company said;
"I will now glvu you a. recitation on the
Russo-Japanese war."
"I don't want you to," said a charm
ing little miss of 3 summers, who vwm
In tho audience with her futhcr and moth
er. Noodles to say, the child's remark In
terrupted the performance for several
seconds, the actor himself being so amused
that his "recitation" was punctuated with
numerous smiles.

PUBLIC SCHOOL
ELECTION NEM
Will Be of Great
Importance.
Matter to Be Feared Is What
(Wight Be Done in Re
taliation. Broad-Minded. Trustees Alone Should
Bo Elected to This Impor-
tant Position.
On Wednesday, December 7, the voters
of Salt Lake City will say to whom shall
bo Intrusted tho management of the pub
lic schools of the city. It will bo an Im
portant contest one wherein Is Involved
tho most sacred of American institutions.
It Is not so much a qucatlon as to who
controls tho schools now or who has dono
so In the past as tho tendency of tho Mor
mon hlorarchy to reach out and control
everything in fight political, educatlonat
and commercial.
This force becomes stronger and more
determined to rulo every year since Ut
first defeat by the Liberal clement of the
Stato and tho unfortunate compromise
that followed the agreement to stand to
gether In obtaining Statehood.
Hb forces are entering every avenue of
public and business life. Tho victory of
the political cccleslasts last wcclc has al
ready mado many of the leaders over
bearing and haughty. They are now se
cretly planning a raid on Salt Lako coun
ty that, If consummated, will bo ono of
tho most outrageous political schemes
ever attempted In tho West. It Is Intended
to perfect the machine and mako It even
more formldablo than heretofore.
Danger of Church Control.
Tho people of Salt Lako will be given an
opportunity to checkmato tho cccleslas-llco-polltlcal
machine next month. Unless
this Is done the chances are that tho pub
lic schools will be mado Intrenchments of
power as are tho greater number of the
county offices.
If the cccleslasts win. Is there not reason
to bellevo that offensive churchmen will
bo given full control?
Suppose Prof. J. M. Tanner, the present
superintendent of tho church schools of
the State, wore to aak for the superin
tendency of tho Salt Lako schools. Is
thero not reason to believe, In tho light of
recent events, that he be so honored?
Such a thing has already been Intimated.
Will It bo a case of "ramming polygamy
down tho throatB" of tho "enemies"? Tan
ner did heroic service for the Smootlzed
organization. He Ih a. noted polygamlst.
lie Is likewise ambitious. Ills expressions
and his personal action as a polygamlst
are Indorsed by tho leaders of tho church.
He would be an Ideal Instrument with
which to punish the Gcntllce and tho non-tlthc-paylng
Mormons should a majority
of the Salt Lako City school trustees be
elected by the church crowd next month.
Future to Be Looked At.
As has been, said, It Is not so much what
Is now being done, bad as it Is. as what
may be done If the church crowd, angry
as It Is now because of tho American
party movement. provnllB.
Six members of tho school board aro to
be elected December 7. Two from tho
Fourth precinct and one each from the
other four precincts. Tho present mem
bers are:
First Precinct Byron Cummlngs, hold
over; L. F. Brantlng.
Second Precinct M. J. Cheesman, hold
over; A. G. Glauquo.
Third Precinct W. J. Newman, hold
over; O. W. Moylc.
Fourth Precinct Joseph Geoghogan nnd
Matt Thomas.
Fifth Precinct H P. Henderson, hold
over; W. A. Nelden.
Thomas was elected to 1111 an unexpired
term. His place and that of Mr. Geoghc
gan must bo filled next month. Tho lat
ter will not be a candidate for re-election,
It Is understood.
It Is reported that a ticket will bo put
In the field by tho Dcseret Nows and tho
ecclesiastical crowd which will contain
tho names of Mormons and "Jack Mor
mons," and that It will be paraded as a
non-partisan ticket.
The American party will nominate can
didates In all precincts nnd mako an ap
peal to tho progressive clement In Salt
Lako to safeguard the schools by electing
men who will treat Mormon and Gcntllb
allko In every particular.

WATER IS PURE,
j Spring Creek Aqua Pura Is Well
Adapted for Domestic Purposes.
Severe and thorough tests, Just com
pleted with the greatest care and scien
tific accuracy by City Chemist Herman
Harms1, shows that the waters of Spring
cr"eek, proposed for use for city pur
poses, are In every way fit for domestic,
culinary and manufacturing purposes.
Six samples of the water, Ave taken
from different points In the creek and
one from the flowing well in the same
vicinity, were subjected to both chemi
cal analyses and bacteriological exam
inations, with the result that ono sam
ple was found to be of "good" purity,
four were classed as "excellent." and
one that from the llowlng well was
pronounced "most cxcellenL" The sub
terranean and the various creek waters
are of identical character, the chemist
says- In his report, excepting the organic
purity, which Is greater in the flowing
well than In the surface waters.
Chemist Haims was mildly surprised
to find that so good conditions obtain
in spite of the fact that the surround
ing conditions at moyt of the points
I where samples were taken are rather
poor, stock being permitted to grazo
I along the creek, while water cress Is
found growing In the banks. That no
. contamination has occurred Is consid
ered little short of remarkable.

He Was Found on the Door
step of a Private Resi-
dence.
Half-Dozen Persons Wanted to Adopt
Him, but Ho Will Go to tho
Homo Finders.
"Pleaao -take care of my Utile one,
while I go and look a,ter my other
three little ones."
Tho above note, accompanied by a
two-weeks old babe and a 35 gold
piece, was found on the steps of John
McKeever's residence at 117 South
Fifth West 9trcet, shortly after 9
o'clock last night. There Is no clew
to the identity of the child, and it will
probably be turned over to the Home
Finding association unless some one
calls to claim It. The babe was plain
ly dressed and was wrapped In a wool
en shawl to protect It from the cold
night wind. The child Is apparently
about two weeks old.
Answers the Doorbell.
Shortly after 9 o'clock last evening !
the doorbell at the McKeever residence
rang. Mr. McKeover, himself, answered
the call and, seeing no ono, was about
to close the door when he discovered
what he thought to be a bundle of
rags lying on the steps.
As he stooped to examine the bundle
McKeever heard a smothered cry and,
upon looking closer, discovered a tiny
head encased in the shawl. The lit
tle outcast was taken inside and the
police at once notified by telephone.
Baby Eats Supper.
When Officer Taylor arrived at the
home the babe was busily engaged in
"eating supper" from a bottle, lilted up
with the usual rubber attachment. The
little fellow seemed quite at home and
did not make any disturbance as long
as he was not separated from his bot
tle. The babe was taken to the police sta
tion, where he was given every atten
tion by the burly policemen. In less
than an hour after the child had been
brought In, Sergeant Pratt had received
half a dozen applications from persons
who desired to adopt him. However,
Pratt did not feel equal to the task of
Solomon, so the child was turned over
to the matron at the Foundlings' home.
The little one will probably be turned
over to some good family today.
