ropenn hotel a few days ago, were
i recovered by tho police yesterday from
a Salt Lake City pawnshop and the
thief, P. M. Rutherford, is now locked
In the city prison, having confessed
to the theft.
Rutherford was arrested a few days

any knowledge of the missing gar
ments. Saturday evening he made a
full confession of having taken the
coats and told of having disposed of
them In Salt Lake City. Detective
Pincock made n trip to Salt Lake and
found tho coats where Rutherford said
they would be found.
One of the coats belonged to Denny
Smyth and was valued at 50. The
other garment belonged to one of the
guests at the hotel and also was quite
valuable. Rutherford is commonly
known as "Slats" and is believed to
be addicted to morphine.

, Information given out by the police.
J Though they say they have no eyewlt
j nesses that the fatal shot was fired
I by Odekirk, they claim to have suffl
; cient evidence in their possession to
1 nrove that the fatal shot was fired by

When taken io the station Odekirk
gave his age as thirty years. No gun
was found In his possession, and
though efforts have been made to lo
cate tho missing weapon the police
claim that no success has been had.

was In the vicinity of the Wilson ho
tel when the shooting occurred, and'
further admits that he was ono of
soveralwho were shooting loaded car
tridges at the time of the accident.
Ho denies, however, that he fired the

the peculiar nature of the hallucina

That James Grlms and George Mil
ler, tlic two men held in the city
prison and wanted in many parts of
the country, will be turned over to the
Colorado authorities to answer to the
blowing of a safe at Trinidad, now
seems evident, tho police having fail
ed to secure any evidence against the
men which would Justlfv holding them
in this state.
While both men are retaining a
stubborn silence concerning their past
misdeeds, they have nevertheless
made certain admissions proving them
to be criminals of experience and link
ing their names with a number of
safe robberies in different parts of the
wesL It was suspected by the police
that the two men had perpetrated the ,
robbery of the Moore crocerv on
Washington nenue. Detectives Pend
er nnd Pincock had Grlms In the
sweat-box for more than an hour this
morning endeavoring to wrench from
him a confession of this crime.
Grlms stated that he had nothing
to do with the blowing of the Moore
snfo and stuck to the story of his in
nocence so vigorously that both offi
cers were convinced of Its truth.
Grlms (Jroads going back to Colorado
and stated that he would much pre
fer taking his chances in tfiis stato
than In Colorndo.
' If I were connected with the Moore
1 robbery," he said, "I would gladly tell
of it to escape going back to Colo
rado." Both men also positively deny any
connection with tho robbery of the
mall boxes in this city, although an
effort has been made to draw from
tbem an admission of this crime.
It has been positively established
that Grlms and Miller aro wanted for
a safe blowing trick at Trinidad, Colo.,
and the robbery of the postofflce at
Fort Scott, N. M. The Trinidad af
fair was not a postofflce robbery and
the federal officials therefore have no
connection with this case.
Mf it is discovered that the Fort
Scott robbery is moro serious than
the Trinldnd crime then the men will
bo taken into custody and punished
by the federal authorities. If It can
bo positively established that these
are the men who havo committed tho
numerous mailbox lobberles In the
West, then they are almost certain to
answer to the government,
CHANGES IN IMMIGRATION
LAWS ARE PROPOSED
San Francisco, Jan. 2. Notable
changes in the immigration laws, par
ticularly those relating to Asiatics,
were predicted last night by Daniel J.
Kcefe, United States commissioner
general of Immigration, In an address
to a gathering of labor union men. Mr.
Kcefe has Just returned from a visit
to Hawaii, where ho Investigated the
problems raised bv the larco Jan.inoKo
prouiems rnisea oy tne largo Japanese
"As tho immigration laws now ex
I isL" he declared, "it is an utter Im
possibility to keep undesirable Immi
grants, especially Asiatics, out of tho
United Slates Defects In the Chinese
law aro responsible for the coming in
to this country of Orientals who are
not entitled to land. Many Chinese
land in Cannda after paying a 500
head tax. Canada gets tho $500, but
in a great many Instances tho United
States gets tho Chlnose. I am of the
opinion that the immigration author
ities should be given power to de-
cldc the right of a Chinese to land.
As It is now. Chinese or other alien,
I may take his caso into n court, where,
i with the aid of skilled attorneys, ho
often times succeeds in gaining ad
mission In direct violation of tho real
meaning of the rules."
Speaking of Hindus, Mr. Kcefe said
his dopartment was opposed to admit
ting them on account of their poor
physique He urged that tho same
physical tests should be 'applied to
Immigrants as to candidates for tho
army and navy.
