Hilf In tho minds of all school children In
H m Salt Lako City, although tho regular
H work Is going on, Christmas and the com-
H H lng festivities are uppermost. On Frl-
H H day nftomoon thcro -will bo exercises In
H M every classroom In tho town. Neither
H Hi tn0 WcsL sldo nor tho Brvant lllsh
U M schools have arranged for any pro-
HB , gramme yet, but It is expected that some
H V preparations will bo mado before tho end
H H of tho wcok.
H M : Ono or two members of tho Board of
jm H Education will endeavor to bo at each
BB H school building in tho town. This will
H flflj entail lots of work for tho trustees, as
n Hi Home of them will havo to attend as
M ;M many an two or throe schools. As a rule
II, tho. mombcra attend tho school nearost
B B 1 their places of residence.
HI These preparations for Christmas pro
H M grammes are always mado without dl-
K verging any moro than Is necessary from
II tho regular school work. All tho reclta
fl PJ tlcns nre prepared In class. In the clc
n H ' mentnry and grammar grades, tho read
Ill if lng is taken from selections such as
M Hi Dickens's Christmas Carol and similar
W D appropriate books. Tho musical work
IB W that is taught during the few weeks bo
Hl It foro tho Christmas vacation, Is always
fflj D of tho Christmas carol order. The songs
MM Bf have npproprlato words and aro old
fl HI Christmas selections. Similarly in the
Hfl HI - art department, tho work that Is dc
M B signed has an appropriate meaning.
B HI Tho samo plan Is followed before other
B B holidays. Before tho National holidays
H am wit" a historic significance Lhe work that
H M Is carried out beforehand always has
B HJ bearing on tho meaning of tho festivity.
B Bj In the meantime tho youngsters aro
B Bj grcatlv excited in making their prepara-
U B lions. They aro now putting tho finish-
H B jng touches on tho. presents they have
Hjl B been making for their parents- In the
H R manual training department, they have
B Ml been set to work on handiwork they can
M KM use for gifts.
B IB. Tho programmes arc being heartily en-
B HBi tcrcd Into. Most of the parents will bo In
MB gl attendance. Tho children look on tho
Hfl H programme as tho real beginning of their
Hi MB Tho "high schools havo not had time to
Hfl mako any elaborato preparations. Tho
B Ml regular schedulo of work calls for so
BH much time that thoy can. not set any
Hfl H aside for preparing exorcises. They will
DH B probably havo an informal send-off be
ll B fore they quit work for two weeks.
H B Music a Regular Course.
H!ln! Salt Lake City will soon follow In the
H slep3 of Eastern towns in having a reg
BllK ular musical course at the high school.
BTB SuiKsrlnlendcnt Chrlstensen said yester
BLB day that ho expected such a courso to be
BJ.B established as a regular thing soon.
n "We have not got around to it yot," he
HJHIl said, "but I can see that the time Is not
H'SUf far off when it will be Instituted I have
HkRH been looking Into tho matter for somo
H flU time. Of courso It will entail an addl
J B tional expense, but I rccognlzo that It
Hi B has both a special Importance In cduca-
III' Hon, and a general Importance. It has
In a general importance in training the
H H mind of tho child, Just as the commcr
J II clal course, which was only instituted a
H III short tlmo ago. And it has a special
H JU) value similar to that of the commercial
HJ pi. courso. Many pcoplo will want to take
HbH' up music . as a profession, just as many
PJj B. want to learn commercial matters in or
PJ HJL dor to earn their bread.
HJ B "This hns received much moro attcn-
HJ B lieu In tho East. I havo here a picture
PJ HM of the orchestra of the high school in
HJ mm Jancaster, Ponn. As far as talent goes.
H n we have abundant material in several of
B tho schools in Salt Lake City. In mosc
B of tho buildings thcro aro children who
HJIB havo not only aptitude but oxpert skill
HH on tho violin or somo other Instrument.
HJ ipB Such an Institution docs a great deal In
HJ pjB stimulating, not only a school spirit, but
HJ HHJ an interest in the subject of music. Thoy
II affl could give programmes on all occasions
H Hi when exercises arc In order, such as
HJ HK Washington's birthday. Thanksgiving
HJ HK day. Christmas day and other holidays
HJ m "But, of course, as I said," continued
HJ II , Mr. Chrlstensen, "it means extra cx
HJ H ' pense. Tho physical culture Is another
B H ' expense that will soon bo added to the
HJ m ' list. At present It Is being followed wlth
HJ H out cost Ono of tho teachers is giving
J H the instruction out of Interest, in the
Hj Hi subject and to arouse interest in others.
D Hft 13,11 tnn t'me' '3 nt hand when athletics
P ll'll for girls will be added to tho regular

H B' Investigating Kindergartens.
RlIB Present indications arc that free klndcr-
Hiw gartens will bo added to tho Salt Lake
EM City public schools before the end of the
HJIBj presont school year. Superintendent Chrls-
B H tensen has been Investigating tho matter,
B B according to his instructions from the
HJ lJU Board of Education.
B rDJ Estimates havo been received from many
PP B firms. Superintendent Chrlstensen has
PP pi been inquiring as to tho cost of equip
On H monts for the various rooms, As far as
B Pj can be at present ascertained, tho furnl
IHJ pii 1 turc in each room will cost from $100 to
HJ B $1S0. The item of expenso for tho salary
fl B of the teachers will be minimized. Tho
HUB State normal school In connection with
BID the Unlversltv of Utah has made an offer
HI to the city that will assist in this wav.
MnW They offer to send an assistant teacher
BtHI I free of cost to each room. They will make
HHHJ that work part of their course by wav of
Bf training for the nsplring teacher. Thus
BlBa the board will only havo to employ one
PHJHJ . teacher in each room. The assistant will
BJP be provided without any cost lo tho cltv
flfflj I The Superintendent will make hl3 report

Board of Examiners Thinks tho Rent
for Legislative Chambor
Councilman Martin told an almost pa
thetic talo of cruel treatment of child
ren at tho Council meotlnir last night.
Ho Btatod that Mrs. M. P. Coales, who
sells newspapers at tho corner of Second
South and Main, not only deprived hor
young children of an education but treat
ed them crully. Ho said that she turned,
them out In the cold at 1 a, m. to sell
Mrs. Coatcs had sent in a potltion to
tho Council. She protested against the
passage of Martin's ordlnanco forbidding
girls under 18 years of ngo to sell papers
on the streets. She says that she has
to rely upon hor glrla to help her support
a large family. If thoy can not sell pa
pers she can not support them. Tho or
dlnanco, sho said would work a hardship
on hor as her husband died a short tlmo
ngo. Without her eldest girl, who Is 15
year old, sho can not earn onough mon
ey. Sho said that tho girl was modest
and there was no harm in her being on
Martin Knows Her.
This Inst statement especially was did
puled by Martin. Ho said it was a shamo
for girls to bo kept on tho streets In such
a way. "It Is exactly such cases as that
of this woman that I am aiming at," ho
said. "This woman hvos .near my house
and I know all about her. Sho makes
her children "soil papers for hor when
thoy ought to bo In school. I know that
she turns those poor littlo kids out at
4 o'clock on a cold morning nnd sends
them up to tho newspaper ofllces so as
to sell papers on tho streets. As for tho
girl who Is modest, no ono who has
watched they way sho sells her papers
can say that. Sho gets down near the
Kenyon hotel, nnd it is her mother's
boast that sho gets a quarter for tho ma
jority of the papers she sells and never
gives change. If you mean to tell mo
that It Is a right way for chlldron to bo
brought up, 1 beg to differ. As for Mrs.
Coatca being hard up. I know hotter.
Sho has eight chlldron. and keeps them
all on tho streets making money for her,
when they ought to be at school."
Tho ordinance was laid over. Tudden
ham though tho matter was already
covered by the school law.

treasurer's ofllco camo up. Nouhnusen
moved that tho dog catcher bo placed on
tho salary list at a salary of $75 a month.
Councilman Black, chairman of tho com
mittee that approves tho catcher's bills,
said that would be docking hln present
wages. Ho never makes losa than $103
In a month, and has mado as much as
$12S. Tho chair ruled Neuhausen's mo
tion out of order as tho office of dog
catcher Is created by ordinance.
Black's ordlnanco to raise the salaries
was passed ' The clerk In future gets
$100 a month. Tho assistant llcenso col
lector and the delinquent water rates
collector git $90 each, instead of $75
Councilman Martin mado vigorous pro
test against tho raises. Ho said tho pres
ent administration was Increasing tho
payroll at an alarming rato. Already ad
ditions to tho extent of $16,000 a year had
been made. Ho foretold that tho ad
ministration would soon find Itself In the

Tho complaint sots forth tho fact that
tho original Mayor's deeds to these plccos
of property wero mndo to Bernard II.
Schcttler and that he had continuously
paid taxes on thorn In his own name un
til thv present year. It Is further alleged
that the Indebtedness of Schcttlor's bank,
as set forth In the receiver's report was
Incurred boforo tho deeds conveying the
property to the three wives wero-recorded,
and that the plaintiff is Informed and
believes that tho creditors of the bank
understood that tho property In question
was in tho name of B. II. Schcttler as
banker, and relying upon thnt assump
tion, entrusted the bank with their
Deed Not Recorded.
Tho further allegation Is mado that the
conveyance of tho deed to Mary Morgan
Schettler was mado without considera
tion other than lovo and affection and
that the deed was not placed on record
until after Elizabeth Livingston, admin
istrator of tho estalo of Thomas Miller,
had commenced suit in tho Third Dis
trict court against Schettler. Tho nb
senco of tho deed' from the records, tho
ccmplalnt says, enabled Schettler to con
tlnuo bis banking buslnss and rotnln
tho confidenco of the peoplo doing busi
ness with him, thus giving him credit. It
Is asked that the court tako equitable
Jurisdiction of tho case, requiring Schett
ler to answer all allegations, that tho
deeds be set asldo and tho property bo
converted Into money for the pnymcnt of
tho Indebtedness set forth In tho receiv
er's report of tho condition of tho bank's
Clearing the Atmosphere.
News of tho filing of tho suits for re
covery to tho estnto of property which
creditors believed that Mr. Schettler was
at least under moral obligations to in
clude In the avallablo asfots of the bank,
has already had the effect of clearing tho
atmosphere to a marked degroo In con
nection with tho failure. For somo days
past there has been a movement by cred
itors to get together In tho hope of be
ing ablo to forco tho bringing out of
property which they bollovo was being
illegally concealed for tho purposo of de
frauding tho creditors Thero was ap
parently in no quarter a disposition to
question that Receiver Anderson was do
ing all that he could to protect tho ln
trrests of tho creditors, but It was feared
that he might not have the means at
hind, or perhaps the authority, to prosc
cuto the case as vigorously ns they want
ed to seo It done. This fear became
stronger when It wns discovered that
within a very short time conveyances of
real o.stato hail been mndo by Ernest F.
Schettlor to oulsido parties. These con
veyances, It Is claimed by both Mr.
Schettlor and Mr. Anderson, had nothing
to do with tho bank's business, but thoy
aroused suspicion and tho creditors be-'
Meeting of Creditors.
Last night a meeting of creditors was
hold In tho IIooper-Eldrcdgo building to
consider ways nnd means of hunting up
posslblo assets that might be in hiding.
Somo fifty or sixty persons wcro in at
tendanco, tho crowd having been about
equally divided as to men nnd women.
Andrew Grundfor was mado chairman of
tho meeting and J. F. O'Brien secretary.
Addresses wero made by the chairman
and by Attorneys G. "W. Moyor and C. S.
Kinney, each of whom represented a
number of creditors. Considerable feel
ing against Schettlcr was displayed by
tho depositors who had entrusted tholr
funds to his care and tho opinion was
freely expressed that his failure was a
rolten affair, that ho had manipulated
things with Intent to defraud them. The
majorily of those presont were working
people who could 11) afford to loso the
savings which they had deposited in t!ie
bank. Thy w-jro in favor of doing some
thing to hasten the settlement of the
bank's affairs, but it was difficult for
them to decido what should be dono. It
was suggested that attorneys bo em
ployed to look after the lntorests of all
the creditors, but few wero willing to
commit themselves lo the proposed ac
tion. Receiver Restores Confidence.
Finally a motion was made that a com
mittee of five bo appointed to Investigate
nnd to call another mooting In the event
that tho employment of attorneys was
found to bo expedient. Not enough voted
to carry tho motion. Attorney Moyer as
sured tho creditors that enough assets
could bo found to pay every claim In full
Including all coats; that the estato should
Sufferers from sciatica should noL
hesitate to use Chamberlain's Pain
Balm. The prompt relief from pain
which it affords is alone worth many
times its coat. For sale by. all leading
bo settled up within bIx months, and that
all of tho creditors wero wolcorac to como
to him for advice, without Individual. cost.
Attorney Kinney gavo a o mllar assur
ance, but tho meeting oould noteot to
gether on any definite lino of action. J t
was finnlly discovered by tho chairman
that Receiver Anderson wad in iho room.
Thp chairman asked Mr. (c,?n y
speak. Tho latter at 1 rat dodlnod. but
finally announced tho filing of tho mi Its
for the rccovory of the property Oacdcd b
Schottler to his wives. There waa instant
rcstorntlon of confidence In thp,.rccoler,
and tho meeting adjourned with an en
tirely different fooling from that which
had ho recently prevailed. ,!,.,.
Following the meeting P.ece ycr Ander
son consented to tnlk about tho caso to
a representative of Tho Tribune
Forestalling Special Claims.
"I heard last Saturday." said Mr. An
derson, "that neveral attorneys wcro
about to bring 3Ults In behalf of a num
ber of the creditors, about soventy -a an,
loavlng tho remaining 130 creditors out
hi tho cold. 1 consulted with my attor
ney, Judge Zane, and we concluded that
we would forestall those gentlemen by
bringing suit in behalf of all tho creditors.
Tho ground has been gone over quite
thoroughly and wo bellevo wo aro on tho
right track. It was tho Intention to tako
tho property from tho wive? pay the sot,
onty creditors In full and leavo tho rest
to get what they could. ....
"As to there being any assets bidden
out, asldo from tho properties deeded to
the wives, thero la not a word of truth in
it. The suspicion nroac from the peculiar
methods of handling securities for loans
employed by thti Schcttlera. Ono cos I
know of camo up since I have been n
chargo of tho bank's affairs. A Ionian
who is nn old-time friend of B. H. Schet
tlor camo to him and asked him to placo
jiCO of her money in a good loan no
found a man who wanted the loan and,
In making It, to savo tho tax on a mort
gage, had tho man give a regular deed to
Ernest Schettler, and Ernest Schcttler In
turn deeded the property to tho woman
who furnished the money. The recording
of these deeds led to tho conclusion that
the Schottlers wero transferring their own
property to some ono to get It out of the
way of creditors.
Was Good Security.
"I encountered several such deeds In
handling tho bank's affairs. In ono case
thero was a deed to property worth $5000.
given lo secure a loan of 1200. That prop
erty did not belong to the bank; It had
only the ?200 interest in it. The money
was paid and tho deed wns turned back
to tho rightful owner. I couldn't have hod
the deed mado over to mo as receiver, for
there was no way I could havo accounted
for the discrepancy when the real claim
was paid," . ,
According to the statement mado by tho
receiver to tho court, tho liabilities of the
bank amount to $107.CO0, In round numbers,
whllo tho assets are about $100,000. It Is
conceded that the full amount of tho ns.
sots cannot bo realized Somo estimates
of their value aro as low as CO per cent
of tho valuation as listed. But In tho
event that tho suits filed yesterday aro
successful, resulting In the turning ovor
of additional assets valued at ?30.C0O, it
will bo seen that tho creditors have a good
show of realizing very nearly par on their
claims, and, with good management and a
fair market for tho real estate, it may bo
possible to pay 100 cents on tho dollar.
Mr. Schettler Explains.
Mr. Schcttler. when asked last night
about the alleged criminal feature of his
failure, declared with great posltlvenesa
that no such charge could bo suBtnlned.
Ho admitted that his last statement, in
which tho expenso account of tho bank
exceeded the amount of tho capital stock
by $2300. didn't show well, but he thought
It could bo fixed up all right. Asked In
regard to tho claim that worthless stocks
had been listed at a high valuation, ho
said that he had listed them at just what
they cost him.
"I have no assets," he said further,
"that havo not been turned over Noth
ing has been dono in tho dark. Tho prop
erties were deeded to my wives several
years ago. but it was not thought neces
sary to place them on record then. Rc
centlv, howover, I realized that I was
growing old and that It would bo vvell to
havo them on record."
At Inst night's meeting complaint wns
mado by several persons that It was not
right that Mr. Schettler should bo per
mitted to contlnuo to have free access to
the books nnd papers of tho defunct
bank somo having found him apparently
in chargo of affairs in the receiver's of
fice. Receiver Anderson explained that ho
kept all money and securities In a bank
vault, that he was under ample bonds and
that ho held himself responsible for
Is Schettlor Liable?
A feature of the case about which little
has been said, but to which some of tho
Indignant creditors are beginning to pay
attention, Is tho alleged liability of Banker
Schettler to prosecution for a felony for
having received deposits after he was In
solvent. Section H12 of the Rovlsed Stat
utes of 1S93 says:
"Agent of Insolvent Bank Receiving De
positsEvery officor, agent, teller or
clerk of any bank, nnd every Individual
banker or agent, teller or clerk of any in
dividual banker, who receives any depos
its, knowing thnt such bank or banker Is
Insolvent, Is guilty of a felony."
The penalty prescribed for this offense
Is a term of not more than fivo yoars in
Judgo Kinney's Statement.
"There can bo no doubt of Mr. Schcttler
having received deposits after ho knew
that his bank was Insolvent." said Attor
ney C. S Kinney of tho law firm of Wil
son & Kinney, who is representing a num
ber of tho creditors. One of our clients,
Mrs Tlllle Sutherland, deposited tho sum
of i5S0 in tho bank on October 13, and tho
receivership suit was brought only six
days later. As a matter of fact, Secre
tary of Stato Hammond had notified
Schettlor some days beforo this deposit
was made that the suit would bo brought
If ho did not at once comply with tho law,
but tho banker had begge-3 for more tlmo
and was given It. I have heard that de
posits wero accepted on tho very day that
the suit was brought. I havo not personal
knowledge that this Is true, but we cer
tainly have an abundance of evidence on
which to base a chargo of violation of tho
statute relating to the receiving of depos
its when a bank is insolvent.
Some Pitiful Cases.
"The deposit mado by tho lady I havo
mentioned represented all of her worldly
possessions, and we havo a number of oth
er really pitiful cases of tho samo kind.
Ono woman who has a family to support
sold her home In Bolso In Seotombcr for
$1700 and deposited tho entire" amount In
the Schottler bank. Another woman
about the samo tlmo mado a deposit of
$000, which was all she had. In tho light
of the receiver's statement. Mr. Schettlcr
must havo known long beforo that time
that tho bank was Insolvent. The fact
that the property listed ns assets was giv
en a highly fictitious valuation shows that
there must have bocn knowledgo that the
assets did not equal the liabilities."
