FIVE MEN SEIZED
AS BANK BURGLARS
Officers Arrest Men Whom
They Connect With River
ton Robbery.
ACCUSED OP LARCENY
Charged With Having- Stolen
Large Quantity of. Booty
From Garfield Mill..
Alleged to liavc utolen 1500 pounds of
copptr.. cable and plalea from the Magma
mill at Garfield, five men tiro now in
tlic county Jail. Tho arresting officers
think the men .may be guilty of thu at
tempted burglary of the Jordan Valley
bunk at. Ulvcrton several weeks ago. as
well as of other burglaries In Salt Lake.
Thg catch resulted after several days
of hard work by Sheriff Joseph C. Sharp
and City Detectives W. C. Zccso and
Herbert Loiclitcr. Tho clow was tur
nished In an sinonyrnouu. letlcr to Chief of
Police B. v Grant.
. "If you will follow this up," said tho
writer, "f Ihink you will find the 'tall and
the short man that you havo been look
ins for in connection with robbcrJca aud
burglaries. "
Booty Is Discovered.
.Tlic cupper, a quantity or dynamite,
some fuse and giant caps, together with
a supply of groceries and other goods,
were found n't the homo of James Buck
on MeCJeary avenue. Seventeenth South
and First "West streets. J a moss Buck, '21
years of age. and Krncst Grow, S, were
arrested at Buck's home, the residence
of Ids fathor, David Buck. Tho other
three men were arrested in Salt Takc.
They arc Dan Grow, 21; .Tank Wilson, Go,,
and .Arthur ("Curlcy") Curtie.
Three of the prisoners arc said to have
been armed with revolvers when arrested,
Buck and the younger Grow, the officers
say, made a show of resistance by shut
ting themselves in a' room' at ' tho 'Buck
home.
Think Pick Clew.
The clew that It is believed will con
nect the prisoners with the attempts upon
tlio bank at Rlvcrton lies in the Identi
fication of an overcoat and pick lol't at
the bank by the burglars and said'' to
belong to David Buck, the father of
Jam'ofi. ' The cider Buck la a prospector,
working in Big Cottonwood canyon. When
about to' leavo on a prospecting trip re
cently, he' is 'said to havo been Impatient
because he could, not find hl3 favorite
pick.
An effort was made yesterday to fit
the shoes of- "Curley" Curtis to certain
tracks thought to havo been left near
the bank' by ono of the burglars. Tiie
foot prints were large, long and slender.
At tho time of their discovery, they were
covered with boxes to preserve them for
identification purposes. The shoes of
Curtis aro said to be not an ill fit for the
tracks.
Grand Larceny Charged.
Tho investigating officercs say they
found that the prisoners had made at
least two sales of copper in Salt Dake.
one for 540 and tho other for $2S. A
complaint charging grand larceny against
the five was sworn to by Deputy Shorlff
Joseph Barlow of Garfield yesterday.
At tho timo of the attempt upon the
bank at Itiverton. the burglars had
wearied in their efforts to dig through
tho vault wallH with a pick and crow
bar and had dynamited the vault door
succcsHfuly, but were balked 'by tho timo
loci; safe, which withstood two explo
sions. What wau considered to have
been a foiled second attempt occurred
about two weeks ago when some one In
serted a key In the bank door, thereby
dislodging tho keys of the night watch
man from tho inside, cnuslng them to
fall upon the floor and awuken him.

Communicates With Progres
sive Senators . to See if
Something Cannot Be
. Done in Matter. .
CAt.DWF.L7i. Idaho. Jan. 4. Colonel
Theodore Roosevelt, in a telegram
to James H. Gibson. Progrcsslvo
Hate chairman, which was re
ceived today, extended to R. S.
jsherldan. C. o. Broxon and A. H. Cruzen
his sympathy and admiration. He also
communicated with Progressive senators
to see If something could not be done in
the United States senate with regard to
what he termed tho "outrage.'
Colonel Roosevelt's telegram follows:
I am confident thai I express tho
fc clings of every decent .American
ellkien whvn J say that 1 am outraged
and indignant beyond measure at
tho Infamy that has been perpetrated
in Idaho.
Asserts Denial of Justice.
In Its essence tho action of tho
court is in the first place to deny to
a very largo majority, possibly a
plurality, of tho voters of Idaho, tho
right effectively to express their de
siro as to who shall bo the chief
ma-gistrato of tho nation, and In the
second place to punish those who pro
test agalnet this denial of Justice
and thcrobv seek to intimidate all
men who may hereafter desire to
protcat against similar outrages,
No anarchist agitator could ever
do anything against the courts com- '
parable' In effect to these actions of
the highest of one of our ntate courts.
Says Recall Needed.
There could be no better proof
that wo need in any stato the power
to recall judgoB from the bench when
they act. badly and that everywhere
we need to give to tho people them
selves the right expeditiously to mako
their own constitutions and to bo in
every a.ct the masters of their own
destinies.
I have communicated with Senators
Dixon, Borah, Polndcxter and Brls
tow to ask If something cannot bo
dono in tho United Statos senate, at
any rale to call attention to the out
rage Let mo know If thcro la any
thing in which I can bo of asuist
anco. Extends Sympathy.
Meanwhile I wish to' extend to the
Progressives of Idaho and particu
larly to the men who havo been fined
and sentenced to Jail not merely my
heartiest sympathy, but my heartiest
admiration.
They are in every act proving by
their conduct tho truth of tho pro
fession they have made. - All good
citizens aro their debtors, Tlioy havo
made great sacrifices for tho causo
of popular government, of good citi
zenship and of tho right temperate
ly and truthfully to say what is vital
ly necessary. In tho Interests of good
citizenship.

Small- Riot 'in Connection
With Strike of New-York
Garment Workers.'
NEW YORK, .Tan. 4. Tho lirst week
of the garment workers' strike in this
city came -to a close tonight-with an
announcement by tho chamber of cotn
nierco that its offer to appoint a com
mission to investigate impartially tho
wago?, hours and working conditions
in comparison with competitive markets
in the clothiug industries, had been
rejected by tho strikers.
Under thi3 plan the chamber of com
merce had hoped to call a truco until
tho commission completed its work, and
its decision then was to ho binding to
both sidoo. The chamber of commerce's
offer was made through the hclief that
the "striko'in this industry threat
ened to impair tho commercial prestige
of the city."
Thomas A. Rickort of Chicago, presi
dent of the United Male Garment Work
ers of America, commenting on thu
strikers' rejectiou of .the chamber of
commerce's order, declared that an of
I for by such a commission was "out
of tho question," hocausc-tho com
mission would not havo power to eu
force its findings. He said tho strike
would ho kept up until tho demands
for bettor wages and reduced hours
were granted. If theso concessions
wore mude, he said, the strikers might
consent to modify their other demands.
Labor leaders estimated tho number of
operatives out tonight at about 307,000,
including moro than 35,000 women, here
and in Newark, Ii. J.

TRAGEDY FOOTED

Motive Behind Murder of'Mrs.
.Henry C. Edey.and Suicide
' of Husband.' '
By International News Service."
NEW . YORK, Jan. -J. An amazing
talo of the real motivo back of tho dou
ble tragedy at Bellport, L. I., last Thurs
day, when Henry C. Edoy. retired bank
or, murdered his wifo and committed
suicide, was related, at tho inquest to-da3-
by Mrs. Nellie Murdoch, wife of
the former Bellport livcrj-man.
Neatly dressed in a dark suit and
wearing furs, tho young. wife, entirely,
self-possessed, told without a tremor of
how Mr. Edoy had laid an audacious j
plau for the swapping of wives between j
himself and Gardner Murdock. Tho
project found favor with tho interested
parlies and moved along to tho point
of Mrs. 33d cy leaving Bellport last July
on tho samo train with Murdock.
According to tho story unfolded -by
Mrs. Murdock, Mrs. PJdey and Murdock
were to go to Texas, where thoy would
institute individual suits for abandon
ment and later, when all wero freed, tho
intermarry iug would come. Mrs. Mur
dock said sho'had aocn her husband
only twico einco ho left,' tho last time
being two weeks ago.
"Wero you living with your husband
when ho brought the suit?" asked Coro
ner Moore.
"Yes," was tho reply. "I was with
him a week on Staten island when tho
suit was brought. 3Io and I wero on
good terms then. The suit was .for
$300,000 and alienation of affections was
the basis of the suit. Of course, I
thought my husband deserved to bo paid
for tho alienation of my affections. It
was arranged that the lawyers were to
get one-third and iny husband and ni'
sclf were to divide Iho remninder half
and half."
At this point tho coroner, noticing
tho witness' young son in the court
room, asked Mrs. Murdock if sho didn't
think tho boy would bolter leavo the
court room, She replied, "Ycr,' and
after tho lad was outside, the mother
