BLEW OPEN SAFE AND BUILDING.
A Terrific Explosion in Hey
wood Brothers' Building.
It Was Evidently the Work of Un
expert Safe Blowers.
lm Pounds of Powder Bapposed to
Have Been Used— The Damage
Which Was Dene—The
Police at Work.
At aoont 2:45 o'clock yesterday morn
ing a terrific explosion wae heard in the
building 683 Upper Main street, on tbe
corner of Upper Main and College I
streets. Private Watchman C. Malcolm
and Police Officer Goodman came npon
the scene to find the front end of the
building blown out, the two huge double
doors of tbe safe blown out in the street
a distance of 120 feet, and the remaining
portion of the safe blown in or further
backward in the building a distance of
about 30 feet. The little frame business
office waa totally wrecked. The build
ing waa heavily charged with powder
■moke, and the atmosphere in tbe
vicinity of the building was hazy with
the escaping amoke. The aafe weighed
about two tons and each of the
doora weighed about 500 pounda.
Near where the safe had stood
was found an empty 10-pound
powder can, recently having contained
"duck-shooting" powder. From the
wreck the can muat have been full and
the entire amount emptied into tbe
safe; but when the can was found there
waa nothing in it. Through the outer
double door of the aafe a hole five
eighths of an inch in diameter had been
drilled, and through thia bole the
powder waa blown. An elevator rope
was used aaa fuse, which was extended
back in the building about 30 feet, a
portion of the rope having been wrapped
around tbe aafe. After the fuse waa
lighted the burglars evidently went
through a partition door into the atore
room and there awaited developments.
But after tbe craeh of matter and gen
eral wreck the* evidently opened the
■tore room door from the inaide, which
opens on Main atreet, or elae they would
evidently have been blown out in the
The building is a three-atory brick,
150x75 feet. The frontage on Upper
Main ia of frame work. The building
juts back upon Mew High atreet, and
in walking backward the ascent ia grad
ual, and near the rear of the building
tbe bottom of the windows on the south
aide are only one or two feet above the
ground. They are not barred but only
fastened with catchea aa windows usu
ally are. No doubt the burglars entered
through one of these aide windows.
Through tbe lower floor of the building
runs a partition, dividing tbe storeroom
from tbe salesroom. The entire build
ing ia uaed by Hey wood Bros. & Co. for
the manufacture and sale of furniture.
The north half or College atreet side is
maed as a salesroom and the south half
as a atore and manufacturing room. In
the front of the building in the south
west corner is, or wae, the business
office —a frame partition 20x14. In the
northwest corner of that little busi
ness office atood the usual "fire proof,
burglar-proof aafe." The cashier had
left only $17 in tbe aafe. When the
clerk came down at tbe usual honr
yesterday morning to open the atore he
found tbe entire front of the building
open, and also found scattered around
npon the floor $16 85 of tbat $17. The
valuable papers in the aafe were subse
quently recovered from the wreckage.
The sidewalk in front waa strewn with
■hattered glass and timbers. Several
articles of furniture were broken and
blown into the Btreet. The glass panes
in all of the windows on the north aide
of the building were broken by the con
cussion. There are many windows in
the building, and these vents no doubt
saved the brick wall from damage. The
stpper portion of the frame partition
wall waa loosened to the extent of about
half its entire length through the build
The damage ia estimated at $1000.
Adjoinisg this building on the south
there ia a hay barn to the rear, in which
tramps have been in the habit of sleep
ing. Watchmen Malcolm and Goodman
had passed the building about 15 min
utes before tbe explosion, in search of
tramps. Shortly after the explosion the
officers visited the barn and found a man
in the hay. "I want you," aaid Watch
man Malcolm. The man replied: "No;
it is not me that you want, but those
two men in there," pointing to a hay
bnnk about 20 feet distant. The man
then said to the officera: "The explo
sion woke me and I looked ont and caw
two men running acroaa the horse lot,
like they were coming here. One waa a
short man and the other waa larger."
The officers looked in the bunk where
the man aaid two fellows had been Bleep
ing, but they were not in. The two men
evidently ran acroaa the lot to New
High Btreet, and thence escaped.
They were certainly not expert bur
glars aa iB shown by tbe quantity of
powder uaed and the large bole drilled
in the safe. A hole live-eighths of an
inch in diameter ia much larger than
tbat drilled by professional burglara—

clearing away the wreck, and putting in

NEWS AND NOTES ABOUT THE
Speculation as to the Programme for
the Coming Season—Aggravating
Delay in Settling League *
The dilatory tactics of the California
Baseball league magnates in mapping
out the programme for 1893 ie very try
ing to tbe nerves of the fane, to say noth
ing of its being detrimental to the pros
pects of the game itself. Of course there
ie no fear that Los Angeles will not be
in the league. Professional baseball ia
aa much of a business proposition as any
other branch of public amusement, and
no act of men endowed with enough
executive ability to act a hen would
think for a moment of leaving out the
town that kept tbe pot boiling laat year.
While the queation of who shall manage
the local team may be a weighty one
from the managerial standpoint, there ie
still such a thing aa being too slow about
settling it. At the present rate it wilt
be the middle of February before thia
part of the programme ia arranged.
Then the work of collecting tbe neces
aary playing talent will have to be un
duly rushed in order to be in full readi
ness for the opening of the season, with
tbe result tbat all the moat deeirable
players have been absorbed by other
leaguee, and California patrons of the
game will have to be content with ma
terial tbat ia below mediocrity.
But tbe first problem ia in aa much of
a chaotic state as prevailed a month
ago, with even more complex factors
added. Local enthusiasts have imag
ined tbat this city waa the only one
with a managerial contest on hand, but
the following from a recent iesue of tbe
San Francisco Post opens a new viata of
discord, or possibly a new phase of an
"While Managers Finn and Harris
have never been backward about stating
that Robinson haa been a drawback to
tbe game tbe latter is beginning to think
that his colleagues would do well to
atep down and out. An Oakland writer
recently aaid: 'Colonel Robinson baa
not been making a very big howl this
winter about what he proposes to do
next season. Thia ia indeed atrange.
As a matter of fact none of the league
managers know what ie going to be done
themselves. Tbe affairs of the league
are badly mixed at the preaent time.
Colonel RobinaoD told me the other day
that he thought the beat thing that
could be done would be for Finn and
Harris to aell out. He will not be at all
aorry to see them retire from the field
of baseball.' "
And thus the merry war goes on,
while the impatient fan possesses his
soul with patience, it he ia built that
way, or openly and loudly imprecates
the powers that be for thus keeping him
in the dark.
The acheme for a coaat league of six
clubs, three from California and three
from Oregon and Washington, has fre
quently been discussed, and as often
dismissed as impracticable. According
to a dispatch in a San Francisco paper,
Count Vanderbeck is now in Portland
on a mission looking to the consumma
tion of Buch an idea.
Lob Angeles ia developing into a popu

There are at least half a dozen here
now, and there are as many more in

that there have not been semi-profes
sional games played. The innovation ia
not a bad one in ita way, aa it relievee
the cranks from the agony of cold-finger
games and keeps the appetite fresh for
tbe genuine article.

GEORGE MILES IS ARRAIGNED.
The Alleged Murderer of Geo.
Miller in Court.
His Counsel Raises the Question of the
Validity of the (.rand Jury.
K. B. B.yd P,ea«l« Haflty t» Forgery Ma
Is Sent to Saa Quentin.
George H. Miles, indicted recently by
tbe county grand jury, chaiged with tbe
murder of George Miller and now in the
county jail awaiting hia trial, was
brought before Judge Smith yesterday
morning and arraigned.
His counsel, W. H. Shinn, filed a mo
tion to set aside the indictment on the
grounds already eet up in two or three
other caees where indictments have
been returned,' that the grand jnry
which found them is not a legal body,
alleging that it wae improperly drawn
or impaneled; that the requisite num
ber of ballots was not draw from the
jury box; that noticeof drawing was not
given ac required by law; that tbe
drawing of the jury was not had in the
presence of the officers designated by
law. The court set next Monday, Jan
nary 16th, for a hearing upon the mo
tion, and January 17th for the defend
ant to plead.
The motion made in this case is prac
tically the same ac that raised in tbe
case of William Paul, indicted for illegal
registration. Tbe attorneys in theee
cases aeem to think that they have
found a point which is more general in
ita nature than usual, and that if they
are successful it will liberate on habeas
corpus all the criminals sent from the
superior court of thia county to the pen
itentiaries for some time past.
The point, stripped of legal verbiage,
ia, that for a year past the county has
been a legally constituted county of
100,000 inhabitants and over, of which
the courts could take judicial cognis
ance. In spite of this, however, it is
claimed that they have adhered to the
old order of procedure in tbe selection
of grand and term trial jurors through
the board of supervisors. This they
claim iB not legal since the last census.
The supervisors have selected the names
juat as befoie, and the attorneys in thoae
cases claim that tbe selection must be
by the judges of tbe superior court in
person. The point has been raised in
several cases, and should there be any
merit in it. there would no donbt be
numerous habeas corpus proceedings in
stituted by prisoners now serving terms
in the state penitentiaries.
Another Motion to Set Aside.
Pompey Smith, charged with cutting
John Manning with a razor, was in
Judge Smith's court yesterday morning,
and hia couneel filed a motion to act
aaide the information, which waa taken
under advisement. The motion ie aeked
upon the grounde that tbe defendant
was not legally committed by a justice
of the peace before tbe information was
filed ; that the evidence did not show
that a public offense had been commit
ted, and the magistrate omitted certain
language upon the deposition, that an
offense had been committed, and it ap
pearing that the defendant was guilty
he held bim to answer.
Frederick Mayne wae arraigned in
Judge Smith's court on the charge of
forgery, and January 16th was set for
bim to plead.
R. B. Boyd pleaded guilty to forgery
yeeterday in Judge Smith's court and
was sentenced to three year's' imprison
ment at San Quentin. Two other in
formations charging Boyd with forgery
of other checks were dismissed on mo
tion of the district attorney. The

guilty purported to be drawn by Z. L.

Miss Reynolds delivered a lecture in
tbe Unity church yesterday afternoon
on dresa reform. It was held under
the auspices of tbe Woman's parlia
ment, an organization recently accom
plished among the ladies si Southern
California, and the reformation of wom
an's apparel is one of its objects.
Miss Reynolds is a reader of some
ability and her paper was listened to
with much attention. She did not
claim tbat her views were best suited
for every one, but they were what had
evinced itself to her, therefore she gave
them. Dressing from an artistic view
was spoken of, as was the present style
Symmetry ia the requisite of art, as
for instance the two sleeves of tbe dress.
But it can be variated by having the
sides of tbe garment of different trim
ming. Care, however, should be shown
in tbe matter of trimming. Suits of a
single color are much better than any
combination, except where great taste
ie shown. Her highest thought would
be realized, ahe said, if she had aroused
in her hearers a desire as American
women to have a higher criterion in this
matter than that of foreign fashion
Paper and pencils were passed among
the ladies, who wrote out questions in
regard to dreee reform and returned
them to Mise Reynolde, who gave the
answers and explanations. She ap
peared in a number of costumes illus
trating her ideas. The garments were
eyed intently by the ladies, who pro
nounced them very pretty; they cer
tainly looked comfortable. Miss Reyn
olds recited several selections during
the afternoon in an ucceptable manner.
THE ÜBIQUITOUS KID AGAIN.
This Time He Kills an Indian Not Far
Another evidence of the handiwork of
Kid, tbe renegade Apache, has juat
been heard from by the army head
quarters, as the following diepatch re
ceived from Major Carroll of Fort
Apache, Ariz., by General McCook yes
terday will show:
"Fort Apachb, Jan. 11.—A courier
from Cibucu yesterday reports one In
dian killed, Buppoeably by the Kid, on
Sunday. Troop D, with 10 acouta, Cap
tain Force commanding, started for
Cibucu at once.
"Cabboll, major commanding."
"In my opinion," said General Me-
Cook to a Hbrald man yesterday, "Kid
during his hiding accidentally ran across
this White Mountain Apache Indian
and killed him, or elee he was after the
dead fellow's squaw and he resented
this encroachment. Cibicu is a small
stream weet of Fort Anache." The
general pulled down a map from the
map rack and pointed ont Fort Apache
and the Cibicu. "Ac you will observe,"
he continned, "the whole of this region
consists of mountains and it is difficult
to operate againet tbe renegade.
"we have him surrounded, however,
I think, and he must be getting well
tired out by this time, as he ia on foot
and has to keep constantly dodging.
He cannot be starved out easily for he
eats lisards and almost anything. How

IS THIS STORY FACT OR FICTION?
A Letter to the Police Which
It Purports to Give an Acconnt of a
Murder at Santa Monica.
A Tale or a Crima Which Hay Ba tha
Vaporing;! of a Cracked Brain, or
May Prove to Have Some
A very long letter iv the French lan
guage by some mysterious means found
its way to tbe table of Inspector Moffatt
of the detective department on Tuesday
morning, and tbe strangest part is that
no one knows bow it got in there. It
tell tbe story of a murder which the
writer, Pierre Ricard, says was com
mitted by a Frenchman, his wife and
daughter, in Santa Monica in April,
1884, upon another Frenchman. Tbe
letter may be the vaporings of a cracked
brain, and the tale is told in the long
winded, disconnected manner of an un
educated peraon, but there is a wealth
of details, which, if the writer can be
fonnd, might render an investigation
Pierre Ricard tells of the sudden dis
appearance of tbe alleged victim and of
his never being heard of again. Then,
later on, the writer's attention is called
to a spot in the supposed murderer's
yard, by its horrible smell, under which
he was told, upon inquiry, tbat a dead
dog laid buried.
Some time after this Mr. Ricard had
occasion to stay at tbe bouse of these
people and found that the pillow caee of
his bed bad been saturated with a
peculiar smelling liquid, which may
have been chloroform. When be ob
jected to tbe pillow the woman removed
it, but nevertheless he got a fearful
headache. He'did not fall asleep and
in the night was rewarded for his wake
fulness by noticing some one thumping
at his door. He remained quiet, when
he heard the man say to his wife: "It
must be done, we need big money.
We'll dump him beeide the other one."
The woman expostulated and referred
to the danger, and he then answered
that if she did not want the body in tbe
yard he would harness up the horse and
carry the cadaver to the cienega and
plant it there. Upon further refusal on
tbe part of the wife, he propoeed get
ting their daughter to assist bim, but as
she remained obduratejhe had to give
up his murderouß plan and go to sleep.
Pierre Ricard noticed next morning
that a hole bad been made near tbe
place where he suspected that the mur
dered man lay buried and the earth had
been hastily shoveled into it again.
Tbe would-be assassin, his daughter
and Ricard traveled in a buggy on that
morning, and the former told the girl,
with many inuendoes, that if she bad
been willing to aseiet him in tbe job he
would have bought her a much nicer
dress than the last. Ricard inquired
what the job wae, and the other an
swered carelesely, "Oh, a burial."
The names and addressee of all par
ties to this story are given, and the po
lice have a clue which may lead to the
finding of Ricard in a short time, and
then it will be made clear whether the
story is the idle noneense of a lunatic,
the inepiration of epite, or the true' tale
of a horrible murder. It is strange that
Pierre Ricard should have kept quiet so
many years and now tnat he unbosoms
himself that it should be in such a mys
terious way and without revealing bis
whereabouts. His story covets 10 j
sheets of closely written note paper.

CATARRH OF THE HEAD, THROAT
Mrs. Stevenson Describes Her Remark
able Krcorery Under the Care of D
De Monro and Associates.
"It was at least nine years ago that ray
trouble began. It came on from colds. My
head was at first principally affected. There
were severe pains across my forehead over riy
eyes, often causing me pain in the eyeballs.
My eyes would become weak and watery. My
nostrils would at times discharge a watery mat
ter, and at other times become c ogged up, so
that I coald scarcely breathe through them.
Constant ringing and roaring noises in my ears
distressed and annoyed me and made me fear
that my hearing was becooing impaired.
The mucous from mv head would d op hick in
to my throat and keep me c nn>' an ly hawking
and gagging and raising."
In this way Mrs. Mar; Stevenson, res'dlng at
345 South Fourth West stree', "ne of the many
grateful patients of Dr. De Mouc j and
ate'residing in Sat Lake City, described her
catarrhal trouble, where it first obtained Its
hold upon her.
"Gradually," ste continu-d. "tho catarrh,
which first affected Bimply my h«»d ai d throat,
extended until my wh le system was under
mined. It Was CATtRRH OF THE HEAD. THROAT
and;Btomach, I believe they called it, but my
lungs and heart seemed to be Involved also.
315 South Fourth West Street Salt Lake City.
Sharp, shooting pains would take me in tbe
chest, running through to the shoulder blades.
My heart would beat hard and fast, and this
would be followed by a slow Irregular 1 eating
and a sensation of faintness or dizrlutss. The
least exertion would put me all out of breath
I had difficulty in getting air enough into my
lungs. My breathing wa„ labored. It seemed
as if I was drawing the air through a sponge,
and there wou'd be a wneezlng, whistling
kind of sound with my breathing.
"I had little appetite my stomach was weak,
and what food I managed to eat would la? like
lead upon it. Then would be a feeling of dis
tress and nausea after eating. M,* sleep was
fitful and broken.
"In fact, I was a brokon drown wotna a when
I went to Dr. De Monco aud associates. I had
tried many doctors and ail sorts of patent
medicines without getting relief. I could
hardly walk. I was so weak snd sick. Well,
you can see for yourrelf what Dr De Moneo
and associates have done lot me. They have
restored my health. I eat well, tii ep well, feel
well. lama new woman-a strong, healthy
and happy woman. That Is what these physi
cians have done for me. If any one doubis the
truth of my wonderful recovei y nnd-T tbe care
of these doctors, let them call upon ,-r.o and
see for themselves."
