I l0 TRUTH g
H Tlio capture of tho unsavory and
solf-contossod vagrant Jim Donelson
cast a gloom over the pollco and ten-
derloin circles'. It also cast a sombre
hue over tho Kearns party.
H Jim Donelson la tho thug who sworo
out a warrant charging a well-known
preacher or this city with perjury
because tho minister had tho courage
to stop one of his fake prizo fights.
Tho ' -"buno and tho Kearns party at
that time roundly abused a good clt-
izen and took tho part of tho thug,
Wlillo not every man in tho Kearns
party is a thug and hobo, it Is unt-
vorsally conceded that overy hobo
thug, stocking-log gambler' and thiet
belongs to that party.
What a deplorable condition our po
Hco department is in! While th
sheriff and his force havo been seek-
ing diligently to arrest Ave thugs who
robbed two strangers, the ponco de
H partmont not only remained dormant
H uuw o.en no.peu mo uug0 10 get uuy
and kopt them posted as to tho wkere-
abouts of their pursuers.
Tho Tribune, the thug orcan ami
mouthpiece of tho Kearns pmy aS
the tenderloin dibtrict, is very wrathy I
at tho sheriff and governor for cap-

right down in your heart you are not
H. , Ask yourself this question. Mr. Cit-
,zen: " tho sheriff's ofilco had been
" under tho control of tho Kearns gang,
H would it havo been necessary for thoi
I thugs, Jim Donelson, tho two O'Briens
Davis and Doll to lcavo this city? I
Tho answer would bo, decidedly, NO!
Tlo police and flro departments
1 should bo put under a board of com
missioners to bo appointed by tho gov-
ernor. Tho rotten condition of tho
pollco department demands Immedi
ate action by tho legislature. It is a
disgrace to tho city that a thug and,
vagrant stands a much hotter show
lor protection from tho police than
does a decent, respectable stranger
with money. That Is tho condition in
Salt Lake today, Mr. Citizen, and you
cannot dispute it. If you do dispute
it, read tho Tribuno and bo con
vinced. Men who wore robbed in this city of
$10,000 by bogus policemen aro called
"suckers from Scotland" by the Trib
une, while tho notorious Donelson,
who has lived on tho shumo of scar
let women and all around thuggery,
has been defended by that paper.
Tnls city has become such a notor
ious place lor low-class saloons that It
is about tlmo for tho legislature to
pass a local option bill. Give the people
or this city a chanco to voto as to
whether they want such dons of vice
In their midst. Let us havo a local
option measure, by all means.
With bicycles and roller skaters al
lowed on tho sidewalks pedestrians
aro having tho time of their lives.
There soems no effort being made on
tho part of tho pollco to enforce the
ordinance and few ir any arrests aro
now being made for violating tho law.
Truth can see only ono way out or It
and that is for tho city council to pass
an ordinance prohibiting any bicycle
riding on tho streets and compelling
tho use of slaowaius. So strong is me
inato deslro to violate tho laws that
wero an ordinance of this character
passed, wo bellovo that In tho deslro
to break tho law people would conde
send to leave tho sidewalks to pedes
trlans and tako to tho streets.
The Laborltes claim they will poll
over 5,000 votes in this county.
Tho attorney for Chief Sheets ob
ject to his being referred to as ono

tors. ir all or oven hair that has
been testified to In this caso is truo
wo should think tho gang would ob

Thero Is said to bo honor among
Why this scramble to get off tho
democratic ticket? Threo resigantlons
in ono day or candidates duly nom
inated by tho convention Is unusual.
Judgo S. W. Stewart, W. H. Bywater
and A. E. Hyde seem to havo had a
raco for which could got off tho
ticket first. Messrs. L. E. Hall, Theo
doro Tobiason and Perley Hill havo
been named to succeed them. Tho
Scandinavians havo now ono repre
sentative on tho democratic ticket.
Tho McWhlrters havo acted and
given their testimony In such a man
ner ns to Impress everybody that they
aro honest, straightforward men.
That's why tho Tribuno misrepresents
them and holds them up to scorn and
contempt in its defenso of tho thieves
who despoiled them.
Congressman Howell Is having very
successful and very enthusiastic
meotings In tho southern part or tho
state. His election is considered a
Tho "American" party has assessed
tho saloon men $100 each for cam
paign purposes and they havo to pay it.
Tho chief of pollco Is tho master of
Mr. Kearns and through him tho mas
tor of tho "American" party. They aro
compelled to stand by him no matter
what ho does. Ho knows too much
about Mr. Kearns to make it wise for
Kearns to break with him.
Judgo Powers has opened his con
gressional campaign. The Judo is a
master in the art of campaigning.
It is rumored that Thomas "Weir,
"American" candidate for congress ls
contemplating withdrawing from the
ticket. Tho stench In tho "American"
atmosphere must be very disagreablo
to Mr. Weir.
Sheriff Emery and his deputies are
receiving many well deserved compli
ments on their success in capturing
Jim Donelson, tho thug.
