I TYPHOID DUE TO WATER.
Analysis Shows That Gunnison Is
Supplied With Tainted Aqua Puraf
Water from the wells at Gunnison,
Utah, shows unmistakably that it Is
contaminated by the typhoid germ. It
is at this place that the epidemic of ty
phoid has been severe, and, from the
analysis of the water In that section by
State Chemist Herman Harms, which
reached Dr. Beatty yesterday, this epi
demic is undoubtedly due to the drink
Tho particular water analyzed was
from the well of Mr. Roper, at a depth
of forty feet. One quart was put in a
sterilized bottle. The water was of a
bluish color, with a slight odor, which
became more pronounced upon heating.
It looked fairly clear, but had a pecu
liar, rather salty .taste. Its total vola
tile matter per gallon was 10.501, and
its actual mineral matter, 110.263. The
amount of solids in It Is unusually large.
Following Is the opinion of State Chem
"This water contains a very large
amiunt of solids. Characteristic is the
very large proportion of sodium chlor
ide, which is due to the geological for
mation of the country whence the water
is taken. Originally consldered.Tthe wa
ter Is of poor quality. Nitrates are pres
ent, and the yield of albuminoid am
monia. Is quite high. Equally unfavor
able results were obtained in the bac
"In my opinion the water is hlghly
susplclous of contamination and proper
precautions, mich us boiling the water,
ehould be observed whenever used for
drinking and household purposes. The
large amount of solids, alone, render
the water an undesirable one for gen
eral household uses."

M. C. A. Cards as Christmas
Applications for membership in the
Young Men's Christian association are
being dally received by Secretary Cox,
a majority from parents of boys who
desire to present their sons with the
cards for Christmas. The membership
rolls will not open until December 1,
when special souvenir cards will be
Issued to members. Those cards will
have engraved upon them pictures of
the unfinished building, and as soon as
the new building Is occupied by the as
sociation, the remaining unused cards
will be destroyed.
The new building, which Is just un
der roof, will be occupied In the early
spring, and the membership cards Is
sued In December will be good for
twelve months from the date of open
ing. When finished the building, which
will be the only fireproof association
building west of Buffalo, will cost
about $100,000. The general arrange
ment Is unique. From State street
members and visitors enter a large
lobby, 70x30 feet, which Is to be the
social center of the building. The of
fices of the association will be so ar
ranged as to take in a view of the en
tire lower floor.
Another unique feature of the build
ing takes In the visitors' balconies,
making it possible for visitors to see
the work In the gymnasium or In the
swimming pools without going into that
part of the building, or In any way In
terfering with tho men and boys.
An especially commendable feature
of the building will be the gymnasium,
which Is said to be as fine as any in
tho country- There is an absolutely
clear floor space of 4SxS7 feet, with a
running track suspended ten feet above
the floor. Tills floor Is of a patent con
cave pattern and the rods by which It
is suspended are angled so as not to
Interfere with the shoulders of the run
ners. The handball court will be another
attractive feature. This court will be
42x20 feet, 20 feet high, with an over
head light, and will be an Ideal place
for the lovers of handball.
Ranging In depth from 4 to S feet, and
covering an area C0x20 feet, the swim
ming pool is to be one of the finest In
the West. The pool will be of con
crete, with a 2-Inch brass railing the
entire distance around, and will be
supplied at all times with fresh water,
heated to a temperature of 70 degrees.
Commodious and convenient quarters
are also being arranged for the night
school, which is always an Important
feature of Y. M. C. A. work. In the
various cities of the country. 32.C00 stu
dents are now enrolled In Y. M. C. A.
Nearly the entire upper floor of the
new building Is to be converted Into
bachelors' apartments and rented to
members of the association. These
apartments will be conveniently ar
ranged, with private telephones If de
sired, and will be rented at reasonable
rates. Several have already been taken
or at least, applications for them are

Mrs. Abba Gray Rumel Lived to Be
78 Tears Old.
Many 'friends all over theState will
sympathize with the family In the death

of 1S4S and wintered at Winter Quar
ters, Neb., arriving here In October,
1S49, thus being among the early settlers
of Utah and enduring all the privations
and hardships incident to the early mi
grations. For a long period of her career here
she was In business for herself and
secured a name' of rare Integrity In
business circles. In charity she was
noted and no person who needed help
ever left her presence unsatisfied.
Her husband and two children, J. H.
Rumel, Jr., and Ellen R. Wardrobe,
preceded her to eternity, but her living
children are Abba R. Holman of Sandy,
Alice R. Margetts, Annie P. Erooks,
William, Onfon P. and Frank Rumel,
who are well known In this city.
She passed away of general debility
Incident to old age, but her loved ones

Prisoner Has Big Dam
age Suit Pending.
Was Charged With Diamond Theft,
Proved an. Alibi and Sought Fi
nancial Balm for Feelings.
Imprisonment of E. R. Davis, tho
Harvard graduate, and sometimes
known as the "wizard of the Cache
county jail," is likely to cost the young
man In the neighborhood of $50,000, if
he doesn't In the near future use his
occult powers to transport himself to
Cambridge, Mass., and that speedily.
Proved an Alibi.
The young Mr. Davis, according to
the story told, while attending Harvard
a- year ago, was accused by a wealthy
woman living near Cambridge of burg
larizing her house and plundering her
of diamonds valued at several thousand
dollars. So certain was the woman in
question that Mr. Davis was the crim
inal that she swore to a warrant for
his arrest. At the preliminary hearing
Davis appeared with a cohort of stu
dents and professors to provo that at
the time the crime was committed he
was In a house in Cambridge, a num
ber of miles away. So strong was the
alibi that the Justice of the peace be
fore whom the case was heard dis
charged him from custody.
Mr. Davis, with an eye to the main
chance, at once brought suit for dam
ages against the plaintiff, asking
$50,000 as financial salve for his wound
ed feelings. His attorneys were confi
dent that he would win tho case and
It Is asserted that an effort to com
promise the case had been made, when
Davis returned to Utah.
Case Coming- Up.
The suit comes up for hearing this
month in Massachusetts and the plain
tiff Is a long distance away, besides be

It is stated that the persons who
Avere the victims of Davis's alleged for

order that he may go back to Massa

permission of the State's attorney re
mains to be seen.
Ever since his conilnemetlt in the
county Jail, he has caused the jailer
and Sheriff to sleep lightly because of
mysterious disappearances which he
made from the cage in which htj was
Was Well Locked Up.
When he was taken to the Cache
county Jail, he was locked In a cage
which had, beside the big combination
lock, five small padlocks on the doors.
Davis, with the aid of a red hot poker,
burnt off the small padlocks and suc
ceeded In getting out of the cage, and
to all appearances from the jail. He
left a note for the Sheriff slating that
he would return within two days. The
offlcers hunted for him during the In
tervening time, but did not And him.
When the time was up, Davis appeared
In his cell, as If by magic.
Dust Belies His Stoiy.
After long questioning, he stated
that he had taken a blanket and some
food and got on top of the cuge, be
tween It and the celling. Thjs story
was believed at first, but It now de
velops that the dust on the top of the
cage Is an inch thick, and that he could
not possibly have been there. Davis
refuses to give any other explanation
of his whereabouts, and the Sheriff and
the .ialjer are Inclined to the opinion
that Davis flew out of the window on
a broomstick, a method of transporta
tion once greatly in vogue among wiz
ards and witches.
Since learning of the added incentive
of $50,000 awaiting the elusive prisoner,
extra precautions have been taken. All
the mop and broomsticks have been re
moved" and the black prison cat has
been banished to the coalhouse. Mr.
Davis has also been searched for steel
saws and flies, It being thought that
these Implements may have figured as
accessories to the black art formula.
Proud of Captive Wizard.
If Mr. Davis doesn't get to Massachu
setts he will lose not only the sum of
money which he expected to get, but
will grievously disappoint the Sheriff,
the jailer and the population of Cache
county, all of whom take great pride
in the fact that they have the "only
wizard In captivity."

RigM Hand Han
Reporter Who Helped Make a Presi
dent Arrives Here to
Jacob R. Rils, who has done as much,
if not more than any other man to bring
about decent conditions in New York
city's tenements and among Its police
force, la at the Kenyon. Mr. Rlis is
to lecturo at Barratt hall Tuesday even
ing and will travel through other West
ern cities on the same business. He Is
enthusiastic over the West and finds
many things to surprise him. He spoke
of newspaper conditions In New York
city, where ho was for many years be
fore ho attained his present position, a
police reporter, and talked of Roose
"This way a tribute to Theodore
Roosevelt," he said In speaking of the
election. "It was not so much a vin
dication of protective tariff or of this
Nation's present policy; It was a tribute
to the man at the head of the ticket. I
am happier over tho result of this elec
tion than I have been over anything
"And the next morning the President
came out with that statement of his
that he would not be a candidate for re
election. This was an act typical of
the man. He above all others had a
right to 3uch an election If anyone had1,
for he had Just received' a majority big
ger than any in our history.
"His retirement from the Presidential
chair will not end Theodore Roosevelt's
career. He Is Just at the beginning and

"Newspaper conditions have changed
greatly since I have been In the busi
ness. Twenty-five years ago the old
Bohemian set comprised the newspaper
men. Today the young college gradu
ates, preparing themselves for other
professions, are In the great majority.
But I have been much Interested In
watching different young men make
their ways upward In spite of lack of
a collegiate education. Now, as always,
the man who has the ability can rise In
New York city."
On both topics which ho discussed
Jncob A. Rils Is belter fitted, probably,
than any man in American to speak.
He made his way to the top among New
York city's reporters by sheer hard work
and ability. When Roosevelt was Po
lice Commissioner In the same city Rils
was his right-hand man. The deep
familiarity which the latter had ac
quired concerning every detail of the
department enabled him to be of won
derful assistance to the man who Is now
President, and the two have ever since
been close friends.

of the evening and to Introduce tho

Mr. Rlis speaks here is that in which
most of his work has been done the

After tho lecture Tuesday evening It
Is probable that an Informal reception
will be tendered Mr. Rlis by the mem

SPLIT A TELEGRAPH POLE.
Runaway Team Sounded Like Two
Salvation Army Bands.
Terrific consequences followed Joe
Slms's carelessness In leaving a team
untied at the head of Commercial street
yesterday afternoon, but not half so
terrific as they would have been had
not a trolley wire pole stopped the mad
flight of the horses a few moments af
ter Sims sought refreshment In a Com
mercial street saloon. The runaway
was one of the liveliest the city has
seen in years. ,
Sims hails from the country. He had
a lumber wagon loaded with tinware
and other noisy commodities. The
horses that drew this were not accus
tomed to city noises and their ears were
going forward and back as they danced
through the streets. Then Mrs. Sims
went to buy some dry goods, and
Sims, along with a companion, hunted
for wet goods. The horses were left
untied to take care of themselves.
At this stage of tho game a piece of
corrugated Iron slipped down In the
rear of the wagon and played a merry
tattoo along the side of a cook stove.
Both horses made a flying start
for their own south country.
They went straight down Commercial
street at a mad gallop and the noise of
tho hardware In the wagon sounded like
a couple of Salvation Army bands
As they passed Into Second South the
team managed to strike a trolley pole,
supporting an arc light. The wagon
tongue spilt the pole In twain and
shivered the glass of the light. The
harness parted and both horses start
ed for' the sidewalk. But, evidently
dazed by the force with which they
struck the pole, their pace was slack
ened and they were caught without
trouble while they were making for tho
plate glass windows of the Wilson.
Then Sims came out of the saloon wip
ing his mouth, and took possession of
his live stock.

Kidnaping Was Done From
Infants' Home and Day
Driving Furiously the Mother Took
Her Son Down Stato Street
Kidnaped by his mother In broad
daylight from the Infants' Home and
Day nursery, Frank Woolsey was
spirited out of the city yesterday after
noon. Sheriff's deputies are now look
ing for mother and child. The woman
took her seven-year-old son out of tho
home during the afternoon and drove
toward Murray with him at a gallop.
Mrs. Woolsey was dispossessed of her
child by action of the District court a
month ago. According to the evidence
the boy was neglected. He was, said
witnesses, allowed to go without food
and driven from home. He slept dur
ing the summer months In haystacks.
After the order of the court was signed
the boy went to the home, which Is at
C6 I street.
Yesterday afternoon Mrs. Woolsey
visited the home. It seems the matron
did not know of her presence. She
talked with the boy. The latter was
sent out to carry In an armful of kind
ling. This was shortly before C o'clock.
He did not come back. His absence was
not noted until the supper hour. Im
mediately afterward a telephone mes
sage apprised the Sheriff's office of
what had happened.
Investigation disclosed the fact that
Mrs. Woolsey had taken the boy to
State street, near Third South, by the
street car. There she was seen with
hltn. Tho pair were getting into a sin
gle rig. Tho horse was lashed to furi
ous speed and the rig was soon out of
sight to the south. The haste of the
woman driver caused bystanders to
note these facts.
Deputies were sent to Murray In the
hope of Intercepting the woman, but
nt a late hour last evening she had
not been placed under arrest. The boy
Is only seven years old. His mother,
Mrs. Sarah Woolsey, Is a widow. Her
home is in Murray.
HOW IT HAPPENED.
Mystery of City .Votes for County
Superintendent Is Explained.
John W. Smith, Republican candidate
for County Superintendent of Schools,
was found to have had a clear present
of 120 votes given him In the Forty
first district. The canvassing board
yesterday found that Smith and James
E. Moss had been credited by the
Judges with 120 and 111 respectively. H.
P. Burt, the Socialist candidate, did
not have any.
As it Is a city precinct, none of them
were entitled to any votes In it. The
mistake was not due to the County
Clerk. If it had been, the tickets would
not have contained the names of the
city judges. The election judges for
the district were called upon to explain.
It was found that In counting up the
straight ballots, they had credited In
totals to the candidates for County Su
perintendent. "And when it came to
the last," said tho judges, "we were
so tired, we didn't care who was

given him by the Judges in. district
twenty-eight. He was credited with
111. Instead of that he was found to
be entitled to 11.
In district thirty-two, Gould B.

County Auditor, lost 40 votes on the
canvass; Orson P. Rumel, Democratic
candidate for County Recorder, lost

Reckless Driver Injures Pedestrian
and Escapes Merited Punishment,
Road hog driving on the part of an
unknown broke Charles Swanson's leg
yesterday. Swanson was standing at
the corner of First South and State
at about G in the evening. He was
waiting for a car going east. Suddenly
the unknown drove around the corner,
and, before Swanson had time to. get
out of the way, ran over him.
Tho wheels of the wagon passed over
Swansdn's right leg. The man with the
reins cast one look over his shoulder.
He saw a crowd gather around the
man as he lay on the ground. He Im
mediately picked up his whip and
whirled down State street at a more
furious rate than ever.
There was no horse handy, and It
was Impossible to catch him. As it
was nearly dark, no one could see any
name on the wagon.
Swanson Is a minor down from Bing
