RESTRICTION OF IMMIGRATION
LJlK. For example, there can be no doubt
jUjUj, that the present congress Is disponed
pgBffl to paw a drastic law restricting lm-
SfUl migration. Congress Is almost unl-
BjjhjjJ versally Impressed with the belief that
I manj countries of Europe, in the pres-
HJ , m si ill.- o( economic chaos there are
HT taking advemtage of the opportunity io

HH, populations by f.n Hit iting th.lr :rn-
1 migration to America. Several other
HHl reasons run toward the same end of
' Il excessive and large undesirable Imml-,
mA gratlon Into the I'nlted States. Taking (
HHJ account of all these n asons, congress
'H 13 disposed to cheek that Immigration
MHJ and to endeavor to pass legislation to
HHJ that effect.
H But In considering this legislation.
HH congress Is impressed with fl more or

Seth TliOmos, Ogden jeweler, last night "shot and killed
one of two bandits who heid up his store at Twenty-fifth
j street and Grant avenue about 8:30 o'clock.
The other bandit escaped with a quantity of diamonds,
j the value of which may reach as high as $5000.
Both men entered the store as Thorrrao was preparing
to close for the night. One man "covered7' Thomas with
a pistol while the other seized the diamonds from a window
THOMAS FIRES AT EANDIT
Although confronted by the picicl and a seemingly
desperate man, Thomas reached behind him cmd seized his
own pistol. With th:3 he shot the bandit before the fellow
could pull the trigger of his own gun.
Crying out in agony, the wounded jrobber fled to the
rear of the Grill. There he crumpled up in a hero, his hand
still clutching his pistol. V
When police arrived he was still alive. He pleaded for
relief from his pain but refused to give h's name.
Ke died a few minutes after he had been taken to tho
police station. The body was taken to KivkcndaH's morgue.
DEAD BANDIT BELIEVED EX-CONVICT
Early this morning the police announced they believed the dend
bandit v. as an ex-convict, known as John P. ftftusch, alias "'The Mor
mon," who was recently released from the Utah state prison, where
he had served a term for burglary committed at Provo. Description
of the dead bandit i3 said to match th: prison dcsciiption of Rausch.
Furthermore, a pavn ticket in the dead man's effects bore the
name G. P. Rausch. Ihe ticket was issued by the Smith Mercantile
company in Salt Lake Friday. A watch and two rings had been
Among the other effects was a snapshot of a prclty girl who
might be the bandit's sister.
The bandit vho escaped is about 30 years eld. .He wore a canvas
"If I hadn't departed from my regu-i
lar routine of locking up every night.!
before I clear the windows, probably
I wouldn"t be the loaer I am tonight,"
Mr. Thomas said.
"Just before '.' o'clock I started to
remove the stones, watches and trays
from the Twenty -filth street window.
There was Just a few people passing
and I thought that probably some late,
customer might drop In, so 1 did not
lock Iho front door as i usually do
The two men came In Jhrough the
door and the older one pulled a gun on
me. He dropped the m-ttSSle over the
case and hid it In front of him to
prevent detection from the outside
The other fellow grabbed the box I
had gathered the diamonds In and
ran. His partner meanwhile kept me
"The one who took the diamonds
was very nervous and In his rush to.
get out knocked the box against ihe
door and spilled some of the s tones.
The other fellow turned, 1 Imagine, to
tell his pal to pick up the stones.
Just then I fired twice at the fel-i
low with the K'in urnl he fell through
the door Out on the sidewalk he
started to run. The young fellow with
the box started down" Grant toward
Twenty-fourth street and I took a
chance shot at him through the Grant
side window, and missed.
"I believe I lost altogether about
$5000. mostly In diamonds, although
there were other stones In the tray."
Mr. Thomas furnished a complete
description of the holdup who got
away. After the desperado who was
taken to the police, station had died,
Robert Burk, chief of detectives and
Sheriff H. C. Peterson assembled all
the available officers ami they acoured
the rear of the bulldliiK-s facing Twenty-fifth
street and Grant and westward
toward the railroad yardt.
