ALWAYS CALLS THE TURN.
Rono Gamblers Suffering- From "Too
Much Johnson "
Salt Lake gamblers arc on the lookout
for a man named "Bill Johnston." who.
It Is claimed, has a method of calling the
turn ul faro that is unfailing. At Reno.
N' x some days ago, the stranger went
against the bank to the extent of $1000
before the dealer "got wise." The news
spread raMldly and as a result the mnn
was compelled to seek new and greener
pastures. Johnston boarded an eastbound

ways on the lust turn and never failed
to make good Not until he had cleaned
up about S1000 did the proprietor of the
house suspect that something was wrong
The dealer was then Instructed not to

man was forced to leave.
When asked to explain the secret of hi9
winnings. Johnston r. olbd Oh 1 was

But the gamblers declare that It was
something more than luck According to
the stat ment of the man who dealt the
cards. Johnston did not miss a turn In
seven hours' play He called the cards
tw" different ways and drew down a
comfortable sum each time.

Indications yesterday pointed to the
abandonment of efforts on the part of

up additional property owned by the bank
or by B H. Schettler, which might havo
been disposed of Illegally. Tho brlnUm

able, has served to reassuro the deposit

now to favor permitting the prvsent pro

Will Push the Suits.
Mr Anderson said yesterday that on
account of the crowded condition of the
calendar the suits against Schettler and
his wives would probabl bo not reached
by the District court until the last of
February or the ilrst part of March, but
that they would be pushed with all pos

a great number of suits brought by In

erwise been done. They will be glad, thoy
say, to havo the trouble settled oneo

Receiver Anderson said yesterday that
ho regretted that some of the creditors
who attended Tuesday night's meeting
misunderstood his position In ono regard.
Not Defending- Schettler.
When I .suld that I firmly believed that
they would not rind 100 worth of prop
erty that was not listed, some of them
took It that I was defending Schettler
This was not the case. I simply Intend
ed to state the truth as I understood It
I knew from my own Investigations tnat
the farm In different parts of the State
which were supposed to have belonged
to Schettler had been merely deeded over
as security for loans. In the manner al
ready explained, and that tho bank has
no claim upon them."

Sanpete Almost Sure to Get a Sugar
Work of a new concern among the
farmet of Sanpete and Sevier counties
looking to the erection of a sugar factory

to the attention of President Cutler of ihe
T'tah Sugar company he declared that the
Sanpete and Sevier territory belonged to
his company, and that It would build a
Coctory at once If necessary to hold the
territory, provided the farmers grow
sufficient beeus to warrant It
"We have spent a great deal of money
educating the farmers of those counties
In the culture of beets," said Mr. Cutler
"having worked up their product at tho
1 hluh factor. . Their acreago has In
creased from year to year, and the
quality of their beets has shown steady
Improvement. About '.' acres were
planted this year In the two counties, and

CHRISTMAS TELEPHONE TALK
A Unique Idea for the Season's Com

company Is sending to Us subscribers
as a Christmas present a coupon good
for a toll message anywhere ln Utah,
accompanied by the following circular
Salt Lake City, Utah. Dec 15, 1901.
The Rocky Mountain Bell Telephone
company has had during 1904 such a
phenomennl grow th that it now serves
In Salt Lake City alone more than 7000
subscribers; estimating the population
at 70,000, this means that one person In
every ten Is a subscriber to our service,
which is an evldence that we are meet
ing the requirements of the public.
We believe that it Is our duty as a
good public servant to put telephone
service within reach of all the people.
Into the homes of people of moderate
means, as well ns Into the residences
and offices of the comparatively
wealthy; and that our plan of rates,
which makes the charge In proportion
to the use made of the service, Is the
only fair honest or successful theory
of charging, and that it will result in the
Increased usefulness of the facilities
which we are bound to provide.
Our maximum rate Is fully as low, In
comparison, as our minimum rate, when
the number of times each telephone Is
used Is taken Into account. "We believe
that the hitch standard of our service,
and our fair system of rates, will ln the
future as In the past, give Salt Lake
that high telephone development which
Is the mark of a progressive and pros
We congratulate our subscribers on
the results of the past year, because we
know that each additional subscriber
makes our telephone service more valu
able to all our patrons.
To celebrate the Increase of our Salt
Lake exchange to more than 7000 sub
scribers, and to Illustrate to thos? sub
scribers the value of the long dlstnnev?
telephone facilities of our system, and
as a Christmas token of our apprecia

accept the enclosed coupon, which will
