Capitalists of Utah, Idaho and Arizona
are planning to form a great company to
build a magnificent automobile highway
from the Grand Canyon of the Colorado
to Salt Lake nnd thence to Yellowstone
park. In fact, such a company Is already
In course of formation at Prcscott, Ariz.,

and Its fruition will givo to the country
tho most wonderful highway In tho world,
embracing scenic attractions ranging from
the almost dlabojlcally rugged, through
the picturesque and Into the peacefully
Tentative plans of the promoters arc
to connect the famous Zlon creek and
tho north rim of th Grand canyon with
the railroads centering In Salt Lake, the
connection to bo by an automobllo line
to run on tho proposed highway from the
canyon rim to this city. Horo connec
tions may b made with railroads running
In any direction, or tho trip by auto may
be continued north along tho highway to
Great Bridge Planned.
One of the great features of the pro
posal Is to bridge tho Grand canyon with
steel a thing never dreamed of until this
project came Into view. Eminent engi
neers have examined Into tho feasibility
of stretching a steel structure across the
mighty chasm, and tho report made to I.
B. Perrino of Twin Falls, Idaho, one of
the original promoters of the great plan,
Is that such a scheme Is thoroughly prac
ticable under the present advanced stale
of structural steel engineering."
It Is not yet sottled as to which' of the
contemplated routes Jn southern Utah
may be finally adopted. Tho one frequent
ly talked of at this time Is lo touch tho
Salt I-alce route at Lund, going south
through Cedar Clly and Tofiucrvlllo and
thence to tho Grand canyon by way of
Canaan lakcB and Pipe Springs, Ariz.
Another Route Proposed.
Another route is from Marysvale. on the
Denver & Illo Grnnde branch, to Zlon
Springs and thenco into tho Grand can
yon crossing over Into Arizona. In any
event, it is proposed to later continue the
highway down through Arizona, making
an almost straight north and south lino
from tho southern boundary of the United
Suites into the Vellowstono park.
Another contemplated stretch of high
way Is over Into Toscmlte. with a con
nection between the two national parks,

Court When Humphries
Sends Free Speech
Leaguers to Jail.
PRISONERS TO BE
Other Judges of Superior
Court Decide to Interfere
and Issue Writs of
SEATTLE, Wash., Oct. 2. After
Superior Judge John E. Humphries had
sent twelve men and six women to the
county jail today for contempt of his
court, a consultation of other judges
of the superior court was held. Thor
wald Siegfried, an attorney who pre
viously had complained to the Bar as
sociation of Judge Humphries 's exces
sive use of tho writ of injunction, was
requested to apply for a writ of habeas
corpus for the prisonors.
Siegfried applied to Judgo Everett
Smith for the reloase of Glenn Hoover,
attorney for tho Free Speech Defenso
lcaguo and former assistant attorney
genoral of Washington, and G. M.
Hodgson, one of tho signers of "reso
lutions of protest" against Judgo
Humphries 's anti-strcot speaking in
junctions, and they were released on
their own recognizance. Each had a
short timo before been sentenced to
pay a $J00 fine for contempt, while,
in addition, Hoover had been "forever
"disbarred" by Judge Humphries and
Hodgson was sent to jail for six
Entitled to Be Heard.
Judgo Smith said ho would releaBO
all the prisoners who sought freedom
on writs of hnbeas corpus.
"It seems to mo that tho petition
ers are clearly entitled to their liberty
pending further hearing," said Judgo
Smith. "They have raised a question
that they aro entitled to bo heard on.
Thero is no reason for allowing them
to lie in jail pending such hearing."
Judgo Humphries was very angry
when ho heard of the consultation of
his fellow judges nnd tho release of
two of tho prisonors. He made a state
ment to the press in which ho de
nounced tho othor judges and declared
tho right of habeas corpus did not ap
ply in contompt of court cases.
Remarkable Court Scene.
The scene in Judge Humphries 's
court late today was remarkable. Tho
courtroom was jammed to suffocation
and tho crowd interrupted and ap
plauded frequently. Most of the pris
onors when arraigned expressed anow
thoir contempt for tho judgo and de
fied him to do his worst. Glenn Hoo
vor, attorney for tho prisoners, was
fined, disbarred and' ordered removed
to jail as soon as he began to speak.
Attorney Hulot M. Wells, Socialist
candidate for mayor at tho last elec
tion, was disbarred nnd fined without
being ponnitted to speak a word in
Mrs. Humphries, Boorotary of a So
cialist local, was dismiesoa with a
smnll fino, the judgo saying ho did
not wish to humiliato a member of his
own Scotch clan.
Mrs. William McNally stood up with
a baby in her arms. "Tho judge said
he did not winh to sond a baby to jail.
"Never mind," tho woman said,
bitlorly; "the baby la as guilty ns
Baby Sent to Jail.
She was fined $100 and sent to jail
with tho baby and a liltlo boy. The
woman's husband, a Spanish war vet
eran, also was fined $100 and sent to
jail. Six women and two children nro
in the county jail tonight.
During tho judge 's lecture on the
ovil of Btrcet speaking ho declared
that Albort R. Parsons, tho anarchist
haugod in Chicairo after tho Haymar
ket riots, was guilty of murder through
incltemont to riot. An elderly woman
dressed in black, standing on a chair
in tho reur of the courtroom, cried:
"That is untruo. He was; an inno
cent man. I am Parsons 's widow."
As soon as Judge Humphries rould
recover from his surprise,- ho shouted
to tho woman, who was Lucy Par-sons.
"Widow or no widow, you had bet
tor koop quiet or you'll find yourself
In tho county jail."
Judge Humphries expects lo take up
tho remainder of the cases tomorrow,
Ho has said that tho supremo court,
which has issued two writs against
him, hns uo jurisdiction. Another list
of eighteen signatures to tho resolution
of defiance was thrust, into his hand by
an attorney while the judye was on
