i of Declarations Against Red

I Men of All Political Parties In-
dorse Attitude of the
Americans.
Vr 1
Irrespective of party utlilia tions, ex
prcssions of approval were heard on all
l sides Wednesday of the action taken
by the American club, the city council
and the board of education Tuesday
Hj . evening condemning tho establishment
B of a red light district within tho boun-
darics of Salt. Lake City. There was
practical unanimity in upholding the
hands of the three bodies -which had had
sufficient courage to come out in tho
t open and declare themselves lor civic
Hr purity and decency, and ngainsl the in-
iquity of even countcnancintr, far less
in tlic slightest degree giving aeqmcs
cence to, tho establishment ol such a
Hj' district in the heart of a thickly pppu-
H'. latcd section of the cit3, or anywhere
Hi -' within the city limits.
And just as the chorus or approval
knew no partisanship, neither was it
confined to any section of tho coniniuni
: ' tv. Men in all walks of life oxpressed
' Iheir satisfaction that decided action
had been taken against the proposed
evil, and mothers were supremely happy
Hf' that there are in the community men
L i fearless enough to come out and declare
against such an iniquity. The question
d of politics did not enter into the issue;
Hft it. is simply a matter of morality, ot
Hl purity and "of good citizenship. It is a
L matter which concerns all cood citizens,
B' because it. is one -which seriously affects
H' the young of the city, both male and
t female, and thus all good citizens ap-
i prove of tho opposition to tho move-
Bi Maintain Good Name of City.
B) Business and professional men. mer-
B'f chants and property owners, all are
V equally interested in the maintenance
1 or the good name of Salt Lake City,
Hj and that its name should not be de-
HJ" famed bv the creation of any district
r for the practice of immoralities and for
3 unlawful purpose.--. As one man ex-
L pressed it: "Salt Lake City cannot
Ht afford to have it go out to the world
H- that, -with the cognizance and acquies-
Br conce of her citizens she will permit the
B, establishment of a bullpen -where woni-
Hp on are herded for unlawful practices
Vl' i women herded, taxed and enslaved for
Br the pecuniary benefit of somo persons.
B , The matlcr is too horrible to contem -
B plate, this trnfiicking in human flesh
B for that is what it amounts to and no
measures are too extreme to employ to
B j completely eradicate it. If it exists
B now it is "not -with olliciaI"cognizauco. it
B is something which has gradually grown
into the community life, and -wherever
Hj it exists, if it docs exist, stops should
BU- 1 c taken to abolish it. The class which
pursues this vocation is an unfortunate
one, but the members thereof arc out-
Jaws and should be dealt with as such.
And the steps taken by the various
B- organizations Tuesday night, wore time-
ly, proper and should lead to a full
HT awakening of the entire community.'

Initial Meeting in Movement for
Afflicted Held at Public
Library.
ATTENDANCE IS GOOD
AND INTEREST GREAT
More Than a Score of Sightless
Salt Lake People Present
at Gathering.
About twenty-five blind residents of
Salt Lake City, together -with friends
to act as guides, were present at the
mooting held at the Packard free public
library, Wednesday afternoon, to in
augurate n movement to establish a
reading room for those destitute of
vision in connection with the library,
of which Mrs. Andrew S. Rowan, wifo
of Ma.jor Rowan of tho Fifteenth In
fantry, now stationed at Fort Douglas,
is the leading spirit.
Mrs. Rowan, who for many years past,
has devoted much of her timo to this
work in various cities of the country,
proposes to organize an auxiliary of
ladies who will pav a membership fee
of $1.00 annually, the money lo be used
to financo the establishment of the read
ing room and to purchase necessary
! equipment tor such, within tue last
few years reading rooms have been es
tablished in connection with the public,
libraries of over a dozen of the largest
! cities of the country, and, when Mrs.
Rowan first introduced the movement
here a few weeks ago. it met with the
hearty approval of the authorities of
the library and they at once contrib
uted tho use of the board room for the
meetings.
First Step is Taken
An organization .of tho blind will bo
formed just as soon as possible, the
meeting Wednesday afternoon being tho
first step, and sessions will bo held
from l:3p to 2 -,30 every Monda-, Wed
nesday, and Friday afternoon.
At first Mrs. Rowan and other ladies
of the auxiliary will read to the unfort
unates, and they will listen, but later
on it is proposed to purchase embossed
books, typewriters, and other accessor
ies, which might help lo brighten tho
lives of the afflicted ones. The move
ment is wholly a charitable one, and
one which will "a id materially in the ed
ucation of the sightless. After a per
son is 21 years of ago, ho or she, as
the CKse may be, are debarred from en
tering public schools, and hence, it is
absolutely impossible for them to be
come educated, except through some
such movo as the ono which is now on
foot.
All ladies wishing to .-foin the auxil
iary and thus help the movement along
aro requested to confer with the lib
rarian, of the public library. Miss
Joanna II. Sprague, and any blind per
son who may wish to affiliate with' the
class, may communicate with Mrs. Row

An obllglnpr cleric In one of the larger
hotels of this city loaned his overcoat
to one of the guests not long ago, and
the guest, noL being able to return to

Michigan heirs of the mtc William M. '
Ferry and Edward P. Ferry, who was ad
ministrator of the estate. In which tho
heirs some years ago sought to have
Mr. Ferry removed and an administrator
of their own choosing substituted. These
refer to the previous litigation, and nl- 1
lego that through tho winning of tho I
previous suits they have a docreo show
ing that Mr. Ferry is personally llahlo

Ferry filed a demurrer and cross-petition
praying that the court decreo that tho

closed, and that the court discharge Mr.
Ferry as administrator and cancel his
bond, releasing and discharging tho sure
ties thereon.
The court overruled the cross-petition
of E. P. Ferry and removed him as ad

HIEI STRANGER
ASSAULTS OFFICER
Policeman Gillespie, in Attempt
to Arrest George Wilson, Is
Knocked Insensible.
In an attempt to arrest a drunken
stranger on First South street, near the
corner of Main street, Wednesday morn
ing, shortly beforo 7 o'clock, Policeman
Thomas Glllesplo was tripped and thrown
to tho sldowallc by his prisoner and se
verely beaten with hla .club In the hands
of the drink-crazed man. Tho first blow
ntruck Officer Gillespie on the left shoul
der, causing a severe bruise and crack
ing tho collar bono. Tho second blow
was on the top of tho head, which
knocked Gillespie unconscious. Reports
from his home, S2fi West North Tcmplo
street, late Wednesday night, said that
ho was getting along llncly and would
be able for duty In a coup:o of weeks. At
tho station- tho drunken man gave his
name as Gcorgo Wilson.
Officer Gillespie was patrolling First
South street when he noticed Wilson come
around the corner of Main street shout-,
ing and otherwlso giving evidence that
ni! was out on a high old time. Officer
Glllesplo went up to the man nnd told
him that ho was tho mmo fellow who
earlier In tho night he had told to go
homo. Wilson did not deny the accusa
tion, and when Glllesplo told him ho was
under arrest started along tho sidewalk
toward tho station without tho least re
sistance. Ortlcor and prisoner had proceeded
about ten feot, when Wilson caught the
officer off his guard and stuck out his
foot and tripped him. Both men fell to
the sidewalk nnd Officer Glllesplo fell on
his back and stretched out his hand which
held his club just under Wilson, so that
tho latter's hand came within a few
inches of tho stick. Seeing his oppor
tunity, the prisoner grabbed the club and
began to strike the officer. Tho police
man was knocked unconscious with tho
blow on the head and Wilson started to
walk away.
Policeman Hlnton camo around the cor
ner of Main and First South streets Just
after Wilson had concluded his pounding
of Gillespie. Hlnton sl7,ed up the situa
j tlon at a glance and started after Wil
I son. and ono blow on tho top of the
man's head put him to the sidewalk,
down and out. Policeman Knst camo up
! out of Commercial street about tho same
time Hlnton appeared on the scene, and
the Injured officer and Wilson wero taken
to tho station. Chief Pitt's horse and
buggy were hitched up directly and Mr.
Gillespie was taken to his home, where
lie was attended by Dr. C M. Benedict,
i Wilson was taken to the sergeant's
1 booking1 desk and without the least
warning camo out from tho daze caused
by tho blow from Hlnton's club, and at
tacked Officer Kast. He grabbed hold
of tho policeman's coat, making a bad
tear. The officers, then realizing that
Wilson was a bad actor, put him through
tho "hot oven," which took all the light
out of him.
I lilcut. ltlchard Shannon had a talk
with Wilson Wednesday night, and the
formor Is of the opinion that tho man
is not sane. He does not seem to real
ize that ho had committed an offense fo
which he will probably receive five years
in tho State prison, says Lieut. Shannon.

FUND OF II LOCAL
FIRE JEJWMT
Money Is Yet in the Care of
Former Chief Charles
T. Vail.
NOTHING YET DETERMINED
WITH REGARD TO IT
Ex-Chief Says He Is Planning I
to Increase the
Amount,
Just what determination will be fiual
13' arrived at with regard to tho fund
of the local fire department, amounting
to something in the neighborhood of
$3000, which is -still in the caro of for
mer Chief Charles T, Vail, is still a
matter of conjecture. No nction has
yet been taken by the firo laddies, b'
Mr. Vail, or by Mayor John S. Brans
ford. But it is generally understood
that the matter is again to be taken up
and thoroughly investigated.
The fund, it is understood, is an ac
cumulation, principally of money, de
rived from sales of worn-out fire ma
terial and cash donated to the depart
ment by various parties in recognition
of valuable sorvices rendered by the
firemen. Thcso moneys, instead of be
ing divided pro rata among the men,
were placed in a general fund, and
have gradually accumulated until tho
sum amounts to about $,11100. Tho chief
of tho department has always been the
custodian of the fund, it has always
bceu in his charge; but this rule was
broken when Chief Vail was deposed
and James I. Devino. appointed. By a
vote tho firemen decided not to transfer
the money from the care of Chief Vail
to that of Mr. Dcvine, but to continue
the former as custodian, it is claimed.
About two mouths ago, however, the
firemen asked the ex-chief for au ac
counting of tho fund, and this he prac
tically refused. Ho claimed that he
was entitled to membership in the Fire
men's Benefit association, and also to
the benefits accruing therefrom, and he
decided to make application for such
membership.
Plans to Increase Fund.
Former Chief Vail now states that
he is planning to increase the fund.
This he proposes to do by giving nn ex
hibition at the coming state fair of tho
Salt Lake City firemen in action, and lie
claims to have made arrangements for
this with tho management of tho fair.
Ho has also, he states, arranged with
Chief Glorc for the loan of all the ap
paratus ho, can consistently spare for
use in giving this exhibition. Mr. Vail
also states th.ilv if all tho firemen who
signed the petition making him cus
todian of the fund after he left the de
partment will now sign a. petition re
questing him to make an accounting ho
will complv.
When Chief Glore was asked con
cerning tho request which former Chief
Vail said ho had made for the loan of
apparatus he replied that tho former tiro
chief Hud asked for the use of an old
re engine and a hose wagon. Chief
'Glore, however, took no action on the
request but referred Mr. Vail to the
city council nnd he will probably make
his request for tho loan to that body.
In tho meantime it is possiblo tha't
the mayor or the council may make au
inquiry as to what is the present con
dition of tho fund, or what disposition,
if airy, has been made of it. This in
quiry will bo justified, because- some of
the fund was derived from the sale of
eitv property.

i
The cases of Oswald Ferris and For

wero sent to tho State Industrial school
for burglary, from which they, with
four others, afterwards escaped, tool;
a new turn Wednesday morning.
At their trials on the chargo of burg
laiy they pleaded guilty, which resulted
in their being committed to the Indus-'
trial school. When they were prosentod
before Judge- Armstrong in the Third

show cause -why they should not bo sent
to the Stale prison instead of being
returned to the Industrial school,
through their attornc', they withdrew
their pleas of guilt.y, entered at their
trials for burglary, and entered pleas of
not guiltv, making a new trial necessary
beforo they can be transferred from
tho Industrial school to tho Stato prison.
Wilson '5 case was set for Sept. 15
and Ferris 's for Sept. 24. It is said
that the defense will attempt to show
that the vouths were the victims of un
necessarily harsh if not brutal treat
ment at 'tho hnnds of tho industrial
school authorities, and ihat this al
leged treatment. Jed them to break out
of the institution and escape.
Nick Pesco was sentenced to three
mouths improsonment in the county jail

from aspault with a deadly weapon to
