Alarm Evidences of Mag
1 : Since E. H. Harriman lias recently
I acquired his direct routo from the mid-
j, dlo West to tho Atlantic const, not. only
j i by one lino, but by two distinct and
ji widely-separated routes, tho question
; f naturally .irises as to whethor he has not
further designs upon tho railroads of
j the East and whether ho Trill stop now
i that the ideal ambition so long
ascribed to him has at last been
J achieved. -Not so manj' years ago talk,
was current in all centers that E. H.
Harriman only donired to secure some
routo wboroby he might reach the Ay
II Ian lie coast "from the West and rain
I a distinctly transcontinental route with
all its attendant advantages. E. H.
Harriman hns accomplished 1 his ideal,
J and doubly so. Today he joncrol the
j; Erio, connecting Chicago and New York,
I and, likewise, tho Central of Georgia.
' In the Wost, since Harriman has bo-
y come a biff cou trolling factor, he has
t built up a wonderful system. Having
, achieved his idoals in this field and
haviug rather clearly mapped out a
X field of further development here, it is
v natural that ho would devote his ener-
L gies to looking into the Eastern rail-
f road situation, m which he has not yet
) ulaved a uromincnl Dart.
II ' Official Changes.
I r .Recent reports and rumors from the
Jj East indicate that this is just the action
Ij f that Harriman contemplates. First, he
III is improving tho roads ho has acquired,
f .It is not straugo nor difficult to under-
li stand why the resignations and trans-
1 fers of prominent Erie officials are be-
inq constantly' chronicled,
rText in his campaign along this line
i is the building up of these roads, 'ihe
: following report foils just what Hani-
man is doing with the Ccatnil of Geor
gia: ' That E. H. Harriman will operate th
1 Central of Georgia In n manner that hns
brought success to his other lines If? cvl
i : dent from Instructions received by the
ifl freight department hero to havo sollclt-
!j ing agents canvass local brokers and
(i Ehippers for Information concerning shlp-
, meats coming from Chicago. The Chi
ll cflgo agents were Instructed to do tho
came thing. The objoct presumably is to
Influence the shipments of the business
I over the Central of Georgia and tho 1111-
v noIs Central. The agents of both roads
' ' have something to offer to the shipper
k which If asserted to be superior to any
J other two lines. Recently a freight ser-
1 vice has been put on between the North-
I west and Savannah, which Is Quicker
j thaji any before used.
' Savannah Export Point.
That tho Frisco Intends to put a large
f ' amount of grain Into Brunswick, via tho
' Atlanta, Birmingham k Atlantic through
Birmingham, seems to be true. -It Is
i thought Mr. Harriman may be paving the
way to make Savannah an export point
, , for large shipments of grnln from thi
1 Northwest, nnd to offset or to get an ear-
h J!er start on the Frisco, he Is beginning
I now to play up the direct lino between
y Chicago and Savannah over the rails of
I the Illinois Central and the Central of
, It is probable that he will do the
' eame thing with the Erie, if this work
' has not already been done.
Harriman now has two direct lines
to the eastern seaboard. Apparentl
, ' hi3 next step will bo to secure the prop
er feeders for these lines. Conditions
l favoring such a feat were never more
propitious. Many of the small roads
j throughout the country, unable to with-
1 stand recent financial conditions, havo
passed into the hands of receivers. Just
a Harriman rescued the Erie, he will
' undoubtedly rescue several of tho small-
j er roads. And .as these will be of
less importance little will be said,
j Secret Worker. v
j Harrimnn usually does not permit his
plans to be known. If he purchases a
ij road, no one knows thnt such an event
I has occurred until after the deal has
been made. Recent rumors in the East
j ascribe to Harriman tho interest which
has lately been shown in the Western
Maryland railroad. This is a Gould
line, originally intondod to bo used as
part of a connecting link to the coast
by the Goulds after the Central of Geor
gia was sold and before tho Seaboard
Air. Line was finally fiolccted. The line,
however, is but a small one tapping a
rich territory. The Pittsburg lies
' from 75 to 100 miles away from the
line. And the Pittsburg is part of the
Erie. A short link and Harriman prac
' tically has n line through Maryland.
.8 P.ut the Harrimnn officials arc saying
nothing with regard to this change,' and
Gould officials are stoutly denying it.
The situation, however, is" ono in
1 which Harrijnan mn3' verv easily secure
another road which will give- him a line
in another State. It doeH not seem im
probable that Harrimnn will f nil to
avail himself of the opportunity. Many
of tho small roads now in the hands of
receivers, no doubt, will pass into tho
control of the larger systems much more
capable of meeting such a situation as
1 that of 1907. Nor doeH it appear im
probable that E. H. IlaTriman will ppr
mit many big railroad men to beat him
I to the opportunities presented.

Ideal Sunday Weather Brings
-Many People to Various
Sunday was a day of rest. All Zion did
not spend the day In tho samo manner.
To some the day was not different from
all other Sundays, but to those who have
been waltlnpand who wore disappointed
a week ago. Sunday's weather offered an
Ideal opportunity for a communion with
nature. Thousands of people spent the
morninsr and afternoon Htrolllng In City
Creek canyon. Others visited Fort Doug
las, and ufler walking alonpr the paved
ways wandorod In Hod Butte canyon to
the Mk reservoir which furnishes tho
P'oit Douglas water nupply. Others vis
ited Liberty park, which, perhaps, enter
tained the greater number of visitors,
thoushudn bclnfir carried (hero by the
street carp. A spoclal programme was -arranged
for the day. Heltl's bund gave
an excellent concert at l o'clock.
Somothlng of a special nature was In
stituted at Saltair when tho yacht Irene
wae christened Sunday morning at JO
o'clock. MlSF Irene Rlscly, In whoso
honor the yacht was named, also had
tho honor of christening It. The yacht Is
owned by the Great Salt Lake Naviga
tion company, of which Charles AnderBon :
Is tho principal owner.
J It 1b estimated that between 2000 and I
3000 people availed thomoelvep of the
opportunity to view the city from the
old Anderson tower, which was op'tiod
I to the public. Tho tower Is G2a feet
high. ' It Is 312 feet above the Tciuplo

oral view ot the city I.s secured. .Be
cause the sky was clear the view was
exceptionally good. Those who climbed
tho tower were .sent In relays, this prov

Former Senator Thomas Kearns, who

"Regarding conditions in tho East
thero appears to be a pi o thorn of 7non

six months it will bo cheaper.
"Bupines3 in gcnoral is at a stand

Better Silver Market.
"With present conditions through
out the country, with monoy in plenty
in tho banks, with tho prospects for a
great crop, and with a conservative
candidate for President, we havo noth
ing to fear in tho futuro.
"As to mining properties and tho
prico of metals, I do not expect much
chango in tho next few months. Sil
ver, however, at tho present time is
very low, but T look for a bettor mar
ket later. Tho awakening of China
will have a good deal to do with stif
fening tho silver market within tho
next year. China is compelled for her
own preservation to equip a large army
and navy and develop her own re
sources and consequently muBt becomo
a largo user of silver in the near fu
ture. "Yes, I am glad to get. back homo.

Did you feel cold last night? Well, it
hi proper that you should have, for tho
Salt Lake City weather prophet said Sun
day nfternoon, after Inking a gllmpso at
his thermometers and baromctcra, that it
was going to freeze. It certainly must
have "froze," becauso the weather
prophet Is a auro enough prophet and
what ho says goes. Mut Sunday's rec
ord was not such a crackerjack record
as one might suppose, for the mercury
did not go up to the figure to which It is
supposed to go during the month of May,
and though it did not freeze, particularly
during the twenty-four hours preceding
6 p. m. Sunday, a little- rain fell.
Tho forecast of the weather prophet has
just about worn out by now, but when
he bogan Sunday afternoon to look Into
the future lie hhw a frost ahead, hut
failed to specify whether It would be on
Ills prediction or on tho weather.

Apostle Ivins Returns From
Scene of Disturbance iu
INCOMPLETE REPORT IS
FILED WITH THE GOVERNOR
Colorado People Determined 'to
Keep Troublesome Indians
Apostlo Anthony W. Ivins, who was
scut to Southern Utah as the special
representative of Governor John C.
Cutler during tjio recent uprising . of
l.ho Ute .Indians in that section of tho
Stntc, has returned to Salt Lako City
and filed his report, in part, at tho gov
ernor's oDice. On account of several
papers and affidavits yet to come, tho
contents of the report will not bo mado
mado public for at least a week. At
tho sceno of I he trouble was Levi
Chubbuok, special investigator of tho
oflico of Indian nffairB. and Indian
Agent Speer of Xavajo Springs to look
alter tho internals of tho rod men, and
Smith Riley, chief inspector of forest
district No. 2, and Suporvisor O. C.
Suow in the interests of the settlors.
During tho week tho men wore in tho
district meetings wero held at fonti
I t olio, Oray6ou and Bluff, and on investi
1 gation as to conditions at each place
evidences wcro presented showing tho
Indians guilty of many thefts. Tho old
settlers of the district arc up in arms
against tho Indians and aro making a
strong plea for their removal. All aro
of tho belief that it will bo better for
both tho settlers and the redskins to
have them returned to tho southern TJto
reservation in Colorado.
Indian Agent Spcor admitted that all
of tho Indians now living in southern
Utah wero registered on the reservation
nnd called rcgularlj' in person or by
Eroxy for their rations. As to their
eing sent back ho had no objections.
Anthony O. Ivins said, however, that
tho Indians hud been living in Utah
for tho past twenty years, and as tho
policy of tho government was to allow
them to scatter about the country with
a viow to doing away with reserva
tions, it is not probable than they will
bo returned. If, however tho lndims
arc not sent back to Colorado, Mr.
Ivins believes a new reservation will be
established in Montezuma canyon and
placed iu charge of the citizens of San
Juan county. This last plan is under
consideration and is the most favored,
if the canyon is found to bo a suitable
Tho main objection to the returning
of tho Indians to the Colorado reserva
tion is that tho people of that Stato
do not want them, and are, of tho opin
ion that they do not belong there, be
cause of their long residence in U'tah.
Tho Utcs are a more or less trouble
some tribe and aro most of the time
causing uprisings with littlo provoca
tion. All sorts of petty crimes aro
regularly being committed by the Utes
and fow of them show the slightest de
si ro to work or to improve their lands,
depending almost entirely on gamo and
the settlers' eattlo for their food.
If it can be shown to the government
officials that tho Indians aro commit
ting these crimes, thero is but littlo
doubt that th'03' will bo placed in Mon
tezuma canyon, where they can be
closely watched by the settlers.

Grimo Remains Undiscovered
for Hours; Burglars' Tools
Chief of Polieg Pitt and tho county

a close watchout for two burglars who
broko into Broadbent & Son's goucral
merchandise store at Lohi Sunda3 morn
ing aud carried away betweon $400 and
$500 worth of jewelry and clothiug.
According to information tho thiovc3
gained ontranco by prying opon tho
front double doors, forcing ono outward
and tho other inward, with a ,-jhnmy.
Virst they attacked tho door by 'trying
to bore a hole through the panel pre
paratory to removing it. but tho panel
j resisted their efforts and they then at
tacked the door.
From tho bungling manner in which
they attomptod to effect an entrance tho
thieves arc not classed as professionals.
At first t.hcy broke off tho lock of a rear
warehouso door. They then turned
their attontion to a back storo door,
which successfully resisted their ef
l forts. Finally they attacked tho front
The concern is a combination iowolry
and dry goods and clothing store. Pass- I
ing throught tho dr3' goods and cloth- '
ing departments tho thieves selected
about ?400 worth of jewelry from the
cases and secreted it about their per
sons. As they passed out they picked

passerby, Sunday nfteruoon, who ob
served that tho i'ront door of tho storo
stood slightly ajar. Tie at onco noti
fid the proprietors. Sheriff Harmon was
called from Provo to Lehi to investi
gate the case. Deputy Marshal Butt of
Lehi is assisting him.
Tho thieves apparently took leave
hastily, as they abandoned their tools
in their flight soon after they left tho
store. In an adjoining vacant lot woro
fouud a jimni-, an extension bit with a
brace, a glass cutter, a carpenter's chis
el and a skeleton key. The tools wero
scattered over tho lot.
Suspicion rests upon two men who
were in tho store Saturday morning.
About 7 a. m. two men entered, as
Joseph S. Broadbent, tho proprietor's
Hon, was opening up for the day's bus
iness, and asked for a whito handker
chief. Arouse Suspicion.
Both acted suspiciously and when
Broadbent started from the jawelry de
partment to tho clothing department to
show ono of the men a handkerchief,
tho other remained behind. Broadbent
ordered him to follow into the clothing
dopartmont. After purchasing tho hand
kerchief thoy left hastily.
Believing that these man are tho
thioves Broadbent, who scrutinized
them closoly, furnished tho authorities
with good descriptions of them. Ono
was tall and slim and of saudy com-
Slexion and tho other was short and

Sheriff Harmon thinks ho has soon
both of tho suspects about Provo and
that two or three times he has taken

evidence connecting either with any

believes that both havo been in jail

YOUTH IS VICIOUSLY
ASSAULTED WITH CLUB
Police Looking for Negro Who
Attacked Lad at Ball
A negro, whose namo iB unknown to
tho police, is being searched for on tho
charge of brutally assaulting a youth
named McKittrick whoso first name
the polico department neglected to ob
tain with a club five or six feet long
and four inches in circumforenco, at

Lako and Occidental teams at Walkor's
Cold Saturday afternoon.
The youth, according to 1m complaint
to the polico Saturday night, was beat
over tho head with the heavy bludgeon
and felled to the ground, almost insen
sible. His assailant was a fence guard
at tho baseball game, and caught tho
lud, whose age is said to be IS years,
pcoring through a knotholo to sco tho
gamo. Climbing over tho fence, tho
negro is said to havo armed himself
with tho immense club aud dealt tho
youth a blow over the head. Although
only one blow was struck, it is romark
ablo that McKittrick's brains woro not
dashed out, as the woapon, which is be
ing kept, at tho polico station for evi
dence against the assailant, should lio
be caught, weighs twenty pounds. On
tho heavy end of the club is blood from
tho boy's head. Tho negro said that
he stopped at the American houso, but
tho polico so far have failed to locato
him. This morning McKittrick will
swear to a complaint against him,
charging aggravated assault, und the
police will renew tho search.

Christianity. Tho God of heaven is the
king of peace and this onrlh is his foot

I peace had como when Christ was born,
but their hopes wore shaken and blast

"To the 'Latter-day Saints there has
not boon mich disappointment. Thoy
havo not built their hopes so narrowly.
They are not like thoso who thought the
whole mission was accomplished at the
time of tho coming of Christ, but like
those who hnd widor views, those who
could seo that tho kingdom of which
Daniel prophesied is not the first but
the second coming of Christ. When tho
I Son of God conies again it will bo to

"My friends, this is the significance
of the religion known nB Mormonism
and the purpose of this religion is tho
building up on the American continent
of a now Jerusalem, and tho establish

in all nations. Tho purnoso of this re

Mormonism. as it is called, is God's
work, and it will never ceaso until its
mission has been accomplished. Then
tho earth will be baptized with fire, aft
