10 IHAU6U8ATE IEV
PLAN Tl TMH HEN
Growth of System Demands
Greater .Safely and Facility
. in Operation.
Tho Pennsylvania railroad has insti
tuted n new plan of training men lo
maintain and operate its aigiiaH. The
demand for greater safetv and facility
in operation having resulted in an ex
traordinary growth in tho number of
block signal installation by reason of
the increasingly intricate nature of j
modern signal work, it was considered
thnt special means should be taken lo
equip men for this branch of effort.
The different divisions of tho lines i
east of Pittsburg have started signal I
schools, where experienced signalmen
give instruction lo the division signal j
employees in regard lo the proper op
oration and maintenance of the differ
ent signal ami interlocking appliances.
Tho importance of this stop is indi
cated by the fact that, whereas in 1002
there wcro but 7S01 interlocking func
tions in operation on tho lines cast of j
Pittsburg, in 100S this number was 20,
725.. having just about Iripled in a pe
riod of six years. These -20.725 func
tions aro operatod hy S702 lovers. A
total of 12.40S signals aro in sorvice,
covering 33S5 miles of road, or over 70
per cent of the entire mileage. All of
it represents a valuation of upward of
i-.-r ooi-i nno
I To train expert engineers, capable of
I directing and planning signal mstalla-
tions, tho company has appointed six
special signal apprentices Messrs. .1.
O. Stoll. George JI. Wion, K. E. Schultz,
C. S. Snavely, Allen B. Cooke and
, Harry B. Applet on. and located them J
on the New York. Philadelphia, Pitts- i
burg, West. Jersey. Middle and Mary
land divisions, respectively. Three of
the appointees graduated from tho state
college, Pennsylvania, and the others
from Purdue, III., and Ohio normal
Apprentices will serve a three years'
course. The first year will bo spoilt on
the mechanical end of the work, with
the repair and construction gangs; tho
second year in the ofiieo of the super
visor of1 signals, and the third year on
outside work on electric audelectro
pneumatic appliances. The will re
port to the supervisor of signals while
taking this course.
The next place open to theae men is
the position of assistant, signal inspec
tor in the signal engineer's office. After
attaining this, they will be considered
in line of appointment to the follow
ing positions: Assistant supervisor of
signals, supervisor of signals, inspector,
assistant signal engineer and signal engineer.

MEMBERS OF "HIGHWAY ROBBERS' UNION"
MAKE AN EfEORT TO REGAIN LIBERTY
Wliilo T L. Irvine, the new clerk of i
the juvenile court, was effecting Ihe I
capture of the fourth inomber of the J
"highway robbers' union," Thursday, i
the first three members, who were cap- j
tared Wednesday and sent to the de
t out ion homo, were busil3' ougaged try
ing to regain their liberty.
Tho three youthful would-be des
peradoes Leroy Corbctt, P. .1. Ryd
man and Leonard Powell slipped out
of the detention homo yards and made
a break for liberty down the street, but
were observed before they got two
block's away, overtaken and recaptured
and then returned to the home. There
a search of their clothes brought forth j
enough keys to effect entrance to half
the houses in Salt Luke City. j
The fourth member of tlie gang is I
Howard Young, 1.1 years old. of Second
Mast and Fifteenth South street, who ;
bears the distinction of having becu I
the first juvonilc to be ordered com j
mitt cd to (he Stnt.e .Industrial school
by the present judge of the juvenilo !
court, Dr. IS. G. Gowans. This was in j
April of 1007, and Young showed no
hesitancy in disclosing this, but rathor j
appears to point to tlie undesirable dis- j
miction with some pride.
Young boars the further distinction I
of having been a charter member of !
tho old "robbers' roost" band of two j
yours ago, which had for its rcudoS
vous dark' alleys behind tho Knutsford
hotel. In fact, it was his association
with this band that landed him in Die
industrial school in 1.107. He appear
also to have, been the prime mover in
the organization of the "highway rob
bers' union," which the juvenile" court
is in a fair way to dissolve.
There is yet "one more member of the
"highway robbers' union" whom the
juvenile court authorities have been
unable to run to his lair, but hi cap
ture is expected in a day or so and then
Chief Probation Officer Guardello
Brown will recommend that the whole

A stolen piano, a saw, a tile, a screw
driver and a spokoshave, the youths

ings on tho south side of Fifth South
street, just opposite tho citv and county
building, and Young revealed their hirl
ing placos when ho was captured. In
all. the youths havo "broken into sevon
different establishments aud appropri
ated somothing like $150 worth of tools
and other materials, most of which the
juvenile court has recovered.
The youths stole articles from the
Independent grocery, 70 West First

Richards street, a blacksmith and re
pair shop at fi25 South State street,
