Bureau Talks of Late Mete
BOOSTING FOR MOORE
Holds Chief of x Weather Bu
reau Ideally Fitted for Sec
retary of Agriculture.
Director A. T Thiessen of tho local
weather bureau returned yesterday from
tho convention of weather men in At
lanta, G:i., where means of co-opcrat-iiiKmoro
with tho ajrrieull.ural inter
ests of tho country were discussed.. .It
is probable that a periodic crop bulle
tin containing as complete "weather in
formation as is obtainable for faruiors
will bo published. It was recommended
thai; a division of agricultural meteor
ology bo established by the govern
ment. Mr. Thiessen said:
Thorc has hoeu a strong Hoiiiluiont
for ?omv time nasi regarding a closer
relation between tho weather bureau
and the farming interests of this
country. The convention al Atlanta
practically spent all of its time con
sidering this question and a resolu
tion was passed asking tho chief of
the TTnlted Slates weather bureau,
Prof. Willis 1j. Moore, to rcsumo tho
publishing of tho weekly weather
crop build Ins. These bulletins arc
published at every .section center,
each section representing a .stale.
Bulletins From Salt Lake.
The center "f Iho Utah section hi
in .Sail l;ikft Oily and it is expected
Ihat the bulletin will bo issued from
the Salt l.ako City office every week
during the next growing season. The
object of the bulletin ls to review
the weather and to correlate It with
the existing crop condiiionM. Thero
will also bo included a. percentage
llguro which will give the probable
average yield of every Important crop
grown In Utah.
It Is designed to have thin bulletin
especially benefit the farmer: the. de
scriptive matter will dwell upon ths
elTool of Iho weather during the
past week upon tho growing crops;
and tlio farmer and others Interest
ed .In agricultural matters reading
not only the Utah bulletin, hut the
bulletins Issued from other .section
centers may compare the crops In
thin state with the advancement of
those In others-
Will Engage Experts.
The percentage figure is a now de
parture and will probably bo given
every oilier week, the reports, upon
which Ihp percentage tlguro will be
based, will bo carefully verified by
experts and will be especially im
portant as the matter therein con
tained will only be about two days
Another important matter taken
up was tlio advisability of estab
lishing a new division of agricultural
meteorology In the weather bureau.
The approval of thla measure wan
no universal that It is thought that
much good will accruo to tho far
mer through the closer co-operation
with them by this division.
"When asked regarding the candidacy
of tho chief of the weather bureau. Wil
lis Jj. Moore, for the score taryshlo of
tho department of agriculture, Mr. Thies
Yes, the chief of tho weather bu
reau litis held the present position
since JSIM and during that time he.
has frequently acted as secretary of
agriculture and Is intimately ac
quainted with all brandies of that
department. There Is no portfolio In
the gift of tho president In which the
farmor is no deeply interested as that
of secretary of agriculture, and It ls
very Important that the next secre
tary be one who is familiar with the
problems of not only Iho Indivldaui
farmer, but of those of tho educa
tional Institutions working for the
f armors uplifting. Mr. Alooro is wide
ly known through tho weather bu
reau, which lias grown to Ha pres
ent stato of efficiency under his di
rection during the hist eighteen years.
The weather bureau Is noted for Its
great interest in helping the agri
culturalist by means of cold wave
and frost warnings and also by cll
malological data, complied expressly
for the use of those interested in solv
ing agricultural problems where tho
weather In involved. Profossor Mooro
will carry, in tho event of his eleva
tion to the secretarysliip, talents
which will make- lilm an ideal tec
rotary, promoting with a fair hand
nil the activities of tho department
which are of benefit to tho people.
Mr. Moore ls in every sense of tho
word a. self-made man. both in re
gard lo executive and mental accom
plishments. He Is self-educated, but
unlike many self-educated men. his
studios have boon so exacting and hi3
Hclcntific training so broad that he
has been honored by doctorate de
grees from two universities, has writ
ten a text book on meteorology for
colleges and universities and was
called by the Tloyal Institute of Lon
don to deliver lectures before tlmt
body upon meteorological subjects."

A story of rough treatment al the
hands of two amateur "Jimmy Valen

nation of a yufo containing no money,
was told to tho police yesterday morn
ing by l' Vano, a Japanese night watch
man at Iho general merchandise store

Tano declares that he was bound and
gagged for nearly nine hours, while the
robbers were trying to get into the safe,
and that hn worked hlm?elf loose, from
his bonds .shortly after 5 o'clock yes
in disagreement with the story of the
Jap, Patrolman M". E. Jukes declares
that he saw Yano at the front door of
tlio store at i; o'clock yesterday morn
ing. Policeman Jukes xays thai ho
heard a nolso In the place, and went
round to 'the back and tried the door,
but could not get in or raise any one,
but succeeded in arousing i'ano when
he rallied at. tho front, door. Vano says
that be remembers .seeing tho police
man, but that tho time was about S;:iO,
aTlcr he had freed himself from his
bonds. Ho did not report the attempted
robbery lo tho policeman at Ihat time,
however. It was not reported until aftet
Iho arrival of a cleric al S o'clock.
Bump Is Exhibited.
In proof of Iho genuineness of his story.
Trfnu exhibits a small bump on his head,
which ho declares uaa duo lo a bluw
from one of tho robbers.
According to the story of Vano, two
robbers made their entry Into the store
.shortly after 8 o'clock Tuesdav night
through a. rear dnor bv breaking, glasa
panel and reaching throtih ami unlock
ing the door with the kev which had
been loft In It. Tano wuh outside at
the time. When ho returned through
the lront door he was overpowered bv
the two robbors. One grappled him while
the olhor struck hlni on Iho head with
a blackjack. They bound ami gagged
him and threw him on a bed in the rear
or tho store, covering blm with a duilu
Then they gave their attention to the
sure, spinning the combination knob in
dustriously, bul without avail.
Torture Proves Vain.
They asked Iho watchman for the com
bination, lie did not know it. They
tortured him by twisting his arms Into
an agonizing hammorlock as they were
bound behind his back. He still declared,
truthfully, that he did not know the com
bination. Throughout the night the robbers di
vided their attentions between worrying
the combination knob of the safe and
abusing the watchman. In a final offort
to mako blm tell what he did not know,
oiio of tho robbers shoved the muzzle
of a. revolver insido tho persecuted man's
mouth beside the gag and threatened in
stant death If the secret wero not forth
coming. The Japanese still shook his
head and groaned that he did not. know.
Giving over Ihclr cfTorLs on tho safe,
the robbers rifled Iho cosh register, so
curing 5"i in change and two watches.
From Tano they took a few dollars in
change, a watch and a diamond stick
pin. To get tho pin they cut off his
necklie, as tho pin was fastened with
a patent clasp. For a while thev rested
from their arduous labors, smoking clgar

The police were notified vesterdav
morning and Detectives Cleveland and
Seager wcro assigned to the case, but
found 11 virtually impossible to gel a
clew lo the identity of the robbers as they
were masked and not known to the Jap
"Thero was no monev at all in the
safe,, in fact nothing but account books
and papers that would ho valueless to
anyone but me," said Mr. Hashimoto last
night. "Certainly the watchman did not
know the combination." continued the
merchant. "Why should he'.' T do not
believe that he would have told it If

Some oT tho st i Iking utterances of Tjr.
It is known that decay of tho leetli

public is forced upon authorities. We

mouth, Is to be Hie work of dentistry
In the near future.
If we collect data and correlate the
mouth conditions with tho conditions
of bodily disease resulting therefrom,
and prove the facts, our position and
necessity is assured.
Forces which arc shaping the evo
lution of tho dentist are at present
working rapidly. Wo havo, physi
cians' opinions of dentists ami of the
value of dentistry and we must edu
cate the great mass of the people.
Thero is it growing tendency among
physicians to pay more attention to
mouth conditions. Yet. there are
many physicians who pay but lltllo
attention to the. Icclh or the, gums.
Need More Dentists.
In tho United Stales there arc
Ihfee and one-half times as nianv
physicians as dentists. Some day
Ibis ratio will be reversed.
13.a initiation was made of the or
gans of mastication and the oral cav
ity of 7l'7 children of a local school by
dentists appointed from the Odonlo
loglcal Society of Salt Lake City. II
took twelve (iiialiflcd dentists and six
school days from Jnnuury 15 lo 2i.

OF PUBLIC MARKET
City Commissioners Question
Right to Act; Matter Un
A public market, wiicro farmers of
Salt L,ake and Davla counties may bring
their produce and dispose of it direct to
local consumers was proposed to the city
commission yesterday morning by a
delegation of farmers. They asked thai
either the city establish the market un
der municipal direction or clso give the.
farmer a right to establish the market
themselves under license from the city.
ft was pointed out that under present
conditions the fanners have no adcuuato
way of delivering their produce direct to
the consumer In Salt Lake and that a
fair saving to both themselves and the
consumers could be effected by having a
regular market place.
Whether the city baa legal right to
take action In tho matter was Talaed
by tho commissioners, who, aftor hear
ing the farmers' petition, referred the
matter to the legal department for an
opinion. Members of tho commylsloners
declared themselves In favor of the Idea
and future developments along tho lines
nnggcaled by tho farmers are likely.
Sites for the proposed market were
discussed and it was suggested that It
might bo established In lh old car barns
of the Utah Light it Hallway company
on Second ISast street between South
Temple and First South streets. It also
was suggested that a portion of tho east
side of Pioneer park might be used suc
cessfully without damage to the park.
