2 HERALDREPUBLICAN SALT LAKE CITY UTAH FRIDAY DEC 2419 09
OPPOSE GRANTING
OF FRANCHISE
Property Owners Will Lay Ob
jections Before Mayor and
Council
WOULD INJURE PROPERTY
DO NOT WANT TEMPLE SQUARE
PUBLIC STAMPING GROUND
Opposition to the granting of a fran
chise to the Salt Lake Los Angeles
I
railroad to allow the operation of trains to
Baltair in the business district of Salt
Lake by allowing a third track around
the temple block is growing daily It is
lieved that moot of the property owners
in North Temple street will join In sign
ing a petition protesting against the
I
granting of the franchise
These protests are baaed mainly on the
ground that to allow the Saltair road to
lay a third track across the viaduct and
through North Temple to Main street
and down Main to South Temple and
hence west to First West street would
Isult in permanent injury to the prop
city on the streets on which the Saltair
lirs would run and that the operation 01
the ears around the temple square would
result in great obstruction of traffic as
weU as inconvenience and annoyance
Property Owners Object
Some of the property owners who will
Join in the protest to the mayor and the
my council say their principal objection
Is i to the proportion allowing the com
pan to lay a third track but most of
the property owners object to the pro
Pse < i franchise on the ground that to
allow the large cars of the Saltair com
ruiy to run through the streets would
suit in great crowds collecting around
the temple square especially on Sundays
and this would result also in great in
> nenienc to worshipers attending the
talernacle qervices This annoyance
vould be augmented by the practice of
K < epuig the reserve cars In Main street
ud practically all of the crowds would
i ithtr In front of the new Utah hotel at
larn and South Temple streets
Bishop Nibley Emphatic
< W Nibley was emphatic last night
in stating his objections to the granting
11 the proposed franchise I think to
ft How the Saltair cars to circle the tem
1 l Mock with a third track would be an
i trigeous nuisance he said The idea
If i asking for three tracks around tHe
iiick is preposterous for the plan of
in ikiug the street in front of the new
1tel a depot for passengers would re
tilt in untold inconvenience and annoy
nee 1 I am strongly against the propo
6iion
JniMph William Taylor said I am
Fuongly I opposed to such a thing and will
fiKlt it to the last ditch The walls and
i1ins of my house are sufficiently
ci FCktd by the traffic already going
iabt it I do not WAr the quietness of
Ty home disturbed by the hoodlumism
iiich the traffic would bring which
oiild also interfere with the asicyed ese
of the temple block
Like opposition was expressed yester
by by Oscar W Moyle who said I
ii nt like the idea very much and would
7 > cry much opposed to the lining up of
i number of cars in the vicinity of the
1 niple block If single cars were run
a iil the culvert on North Temple were
t ered I would not object greatly espe
dally if it were decided to ran no cars
itring the tabernacle services on Sun
day
To Present Petition
A petition to be presented to the mayor
n > id city council with signatures of many
property owners Is as follows
To th > Honorable Mayor President and
Y < > mbers of the City Council of Salt
Lake City
Gentlemen the undersigned real l
< 1 < it taxpayers of Salt Lake City and

Take LOB Angeles Railway company

tri K1 cars on certain streets upon which
Y ar ° the owners of the abutting prop
lfty be not granted for the reason that
ir t would be a permanent injury to our
ropnty and also a source of annoyance
to our peace and quiet And in duty
found your petitioners will ever pray

STOLEN BY A THUG
Negro Highwayman Chokes
Miner and Takes Purse
I
Containing 40
I Choked almost Into Insensibility by a
big burly negro W P Mahoney a miner
I from Bingham was robbed of fiO shortly
before midnight in a little alley neai
First South and Broadway
With the flng8l Darks of his assailant
still on his throat and breathing In great
gasps Mahoney staggered Into police
headquarters and first asked for medical
attention He soon gained his strength
and was able to assist the police in the
search for the highwayman
In the story Mahoney told to Lieuten
ant R L Shannon he said that he had
been standing near the alley at First
South and Broadway when a powerful
arm grasped him He said that he found
his assailant to be a negro as he turned
his face He tried to offer resistance
but fingers clutched at his throat and he
was dragged Into the alley and with his
wind shut off became insensible as the
negro robbed him of his pocketbook con
taining 40 and a small amount of change
Mahoney told the police that he was a
miner and had come down from Bingham
to spend the holidays in Salt Lake He
said that the money stolen from him rep
resented the savings of weeks which had
been carefully collected as funds for the
best Christmas of his life Mahoney says
I that he ts now penniless
The negro who held up Maheney was
arrested at 1230 oclock this morning by
Patrolman George Burton He saw him
skulking along First South street near
Main apparently attempting to catch a
street car His suspicious actions imme
diately attracted the attention of the pa
trolman who placed him under arrest
At police headquarters Mahoney posi
tively identified his assailant with the re
I sult that the negro partially confessed
that he had robbed the miner
The negro who robbed Mahoney and
who was arrested by Patrolman Burton
shortly afterward was identified at 2
oclock this morning as Toy the Chok
er who completed a threeyear sentence
to the penitentiary a little over six
months ago for nearly choking a Chinese
laundryman to death subsequent to rob
bing him of a large sum of money His
nome is entered on the police blotter as
Toy Smith When he relieved Mahoney
of 40 he nearly strangled him to deatn
STARVING HORROR
COMES TO MINER
Alone in Cabin He Is Found
Dying With Food In His
Reach
STRICKEN ON THE DESERT
RESCUED BY FRIENDS SUFFERER
IS SENT TO SALT LAKE
After suffering for six days from cold
without food in a little cabin of the Clif
ton mining district in Tooele county
where he had been rendered helpless by
a stroke of paralytic rheumatism Arthur
Martin an aged prospector was taken to
police headquarters last night and given
a cot In the medical ward of the city jail
more dead than alive
Almost too weak to talk Martin mum
bled his terrible experiences to the emer
gency Burgeon Dr Frank B Steele He
said that he was about to give up his
fight for life when distant fellow pros
pectors learned that he had been 111 in his I
lonely cabin and was starving to deatn
They rushed to his cabin and then took
him over 60 miles through the cold des
ert to a railroad crossing Then penni
less he was sent to Salt Lake to throw
himself to the mercy of charities
My food supply had been running very
low said the aged prospector There
was but a couple of slices of bacon In my
larder when I was preparing to take a
long journey to my nearest neighbor I
had been sparing In my dally rations and
1 had become weak But I knew that I
wonld have to take the long walk over the
cold desert and against a driving wind
I had but barely started out when I
was almost felled by a stroke of paraly
sis Alone out on the desert I dragged
myself back to my cabin It was only a
short way but it took the entire day to
reach the cabin door I became exhaust
ed and then Insensible and when I woke It
was dark and I had almost frozen stiff
Pangs of Starvation
The brief rest gave me enough
strength to reach my bed In the cabin
And there I lay without food and Buf
fering from the cold The paralytic stroke
increased I found It Impossible to leave
my bed The hunger became terrible I
could look over at the two lItUe strips
of bacon on a shelf in the cabin but it
was Impossible to reach them They tan
talized me nearly Into Insanity and I
gnawed and gnawed at the tips of my
blankets and at the wood in my bunk
Day and night I could almost feel the last
of my rations but they were beyond my
reach
Once when the hunger nearly drove
me into desperation I gathered all my
strength and tried to fall out of my bunk
But I could only move a part of the way
I gave up all hope and began counting
my days gazing at my lean fingers as I
could almost see the skin draw tighter
over them and the finger nails fade yel
lowAs
As be continued his story he said he
had become so weak when his friends
came to his cabin to rescue him that be
could hardly recognize them
He said that his friend Hank Johnson
for years a fellow prospector drove him
over the desert a distance of 60 miles to
the nearest railroad point where a train
was stopped This was yesterday and
when Martin arrived In Salt Lake he was
taken to the police headquarters In the
patrol wagon

I The Best Christmas Have spenJ S Polioe M Barlow Oliief
bbT VE HAD a lot of good Chrlstmases
1 1oIVE tact they have all been good
but I think the best one of them
all was ten years ago saId Samuel M
Barlow chief of police last night when
the thought of the coming Yuletide
brought a reminiscent mood
That wail the year we began holding I
our own family Christmas tree Our
children then aged two five and eight I
years were all of the age to appreciate
the coming of Santa Claus Of course I
was Santa Claus had on the full regalia
of the properly clad man of the Christ I
mas snows and although I didnt come I
down the chimney there was enough fun I
in Jangling the bells outside the house
and then blustering In through the door
There is a lot to remember about that
Christmas but out of it all still stands
the expressions on the faces of the chil
dren The wondering look in their eyes
the timidity of the baby and their ex
pectancy as Santa began handing out
the presents from the treewell it was
worth while and it is still worth re
membering We have had Christmas
trees since then but that was the best
of all Next day they began to haw
their doubts as to the identity of Santa
Claus but next Christmas they looked for
him Just as eagerly
Its a pity that Santa Claus the real
i oldfashioaed man that we as youngsters
used to believe in isnt here any more
The present day children dont have half
the fun we used to have because nowa
days it isnt the same Santa Claus
Christmas In its new way is still good
Im looking forward to Saturday to being
the really best day of them all but it
wont be the same Santa Claus of ten
ears ago

Takahira arrived In Washington today

Baron Uchida began his work in the
diplomatic service of his country In
Washington In 188S as an attache He
spoke today of the pleasure It afforded
him to come back as ambassador to the
country where he had done his first dip
lomatic work
I feel very much at horns In the United
States be 5ft55 though I am among
irienas you Know
There is no pressing diplomatic Ques
tion for me to deal with In the United
States Just now he continued and I
know of nothing that will come up in the
immediate future The relations between
the United States and my country are
growing constantly better The friendly
feeling between the two nations Is be
coming stronger every day I think
What about the question of Immigra
tion between the two countries the
baron was asked
That is satisfactorily adjusted he re
plied We are keeping at home the la
borers and poorer emigrant classes of
our country and only students and mem
bers of the mercantile and other privi
leged classes are coming here As a con
sequence the number of Japanese In this
country Is decreasing Our laborers are
returning regularly to Japan and none are
coming to take their places here The
laborers return to Japan simply because I
of a desire to get back to their native I
Irt
land There win be no problem to deal
wim 111 IIIBI connection in una country
The existing agreement with the United
States on this subject has no fixed date
of expiration
I was Impressed with the welcome
given me in California where I met Gov
ernor Glllett Mayor Taylor of San Fran
cisco and the prominent men of the coast
and was entertained by them There was
nothing but cordiality and good feeling
There Is no Japanese question on the
Pacific coast now
The baron declined to discuss the in
terests of Japan in China or Manchuria
or the relations of the United States with
those countries There was nothing new
to be said on the subject he explained
The prosperity of Japan the baron said
today was an the Increase As to the
Japanese naval program he had nothing
to add to what was already publicly
known

to Island of Tiburon
Nogales Ariz Dee UThe mys
tery and glamor for many years sur
rounding Tiburon Island Gulf of Cal
ifornia has been effectually dissipated
by the return yesterday of seven of the
American explorers who had passed
through Nogales on October 18 on their
way to explore the island which they
supposed to be inhabited by maneat
ing Serl Indians and to contain hidden
treasure and flub mineral veins The
party was under the leadership of Pro
fessor Fayette A Jones
At Guaymas the explorers bought a
boat provisioned It for a three months
stay and proceeded up the gulf land
ing at Kono bay on the mainland
There they were visited by twenty
Serls men and women who proved
friendly and who Informed them that
there was nothing of value on the
island However they crossed to the
Island established a permanent camp
and prosecuted their explorations for
five weeks finding no Indication of
anything of value or of great Interest
The Island is twenty miles wide and
thirtyfive miles long and is of vol
canic origin Good grass abounds and
there Is some running water It con
tains no human beings but hundreds
of deer and myriads of wild pigeons
Inscriptions were found proving the
visit there In 1906 of a rescue party
In search of traces of the GrlRdell ex
ploring expedition lost the year be
fore During the partys stay it was vIsIted
by Former Congressman Conn of Indi
ana who Is making a pleasure cruise

courtesy at the hands of the Mexican
officials It came away thoroughly sat
isfied that the mystery and romance
attached to Tiburon is all a myth
