Rio Grande train, four miles north of
Park City, Carl Carlson, a miner, sus
tained injuries at 3:12 o'clock this aft
ernoon from which-hc died four hours

fall to reveal the motive for the sui
cide. Traveling at the rate of Co miles
an hour, Engineer J. G. Bywater first
discovered the man walking beside
the Crack about two rail lengths ahead
of the approaching train. He sounded
a warning by tooting the engine whis
tle. Instead of stepping to 'one side,
Carlson turned and sprang directly in
the path of the train. He was terribly
mangled, sustaining a fractured skull
and a crushed chest, while his cheek
bones were torn out.
He was placed on board the train
and taken to Park City and removed
to the Miners' hospital, where he died
at 7:10 o'clock tonight Carlson had
his shoes, coat and hat off when he
made the fatal leap. He was about 35
years old and had been working In
the mines of Big Cottonwood canyon.
Prior to that he had been employed
by Ne!s Peterson of the Iowa Copper'
company'.

CUNOUS MSI
Modena, Sept. 3 Two Piute In
dians passed through Fay, Nev., a few
days ago prospecting for pine nuts. In
going over the property of the Bull
Hill Gold Mining company their cu
riosity was excited by the evidences
of mineral at the shaft of the recent
rich ore exposures made on one of the
claims of that company.
They were curious to know how
deep tie shaft is, -and while an Indian
does not know anything about the
methods of the mining expert, In de
termining the depths- of inaccessible,
shafts, singular it is, -that the Indian
uses the same method In ascertaining
to somo extent tho depth of an ac
cessible fehafL Which all goes to
provo that an oxpert doesn't know a
great deal more than an Indian about
some things.
The chief Phite of the pine nut 'bri
gade, with rare technique, dropped a
pound rock down the shaft. He did
not have to time the rock, because
there was a noise when it struck the
bottom: The shaft is about eighty feet
in depth
J A Tanner, a miner, bad just
lighted the fuees fqr a round of shots
when tho rock fell, striking him on
the arm and breaking, it. Despite h.s
injury, he managed to get out of the
shaft before tho hlasts exploded.
The Indians, not hearing any one
working at the bottom, supposed no
one 'was in thp mino. Which goes to
fahow that an Indian expert can also
be mistaken on occasion
Tanner was brought to Modena,
where the Injured member was, set.
The harvest of pine nuts on the
property of th'o Bull Hill company will
not bo garnered by Indlaus this' year.

Fl Mill
Salt Lake, Sept, 4 .Rev. Ward
Reese, rector of St. Paul's Episcopal
churcb-r'last-night'delivcred'an -address
in honor of tho Salt Lake Fed
eration of Labor, in which he declar
ed thai Christian Socialism was the
solution of the difficulties between
labor and capital. His subject was
the relation of union labor to relig-
i Ion.
The sermon was largely addressed
to the union workingmep and it was
delivered at St. Paul's church last
evening to a large congregation. The
Rev. Mr Reese took occasion t o
praise tho Socialistic movement,
which he designated as an iustru- l
ment raised up by God to humble '
thdse who were exalted at the ex-
pense of the sweat and blood and
happiness ot the poor people. He de
clared that the present social condi
tion would be overthiown, the work
iDgman would be elevated and the
Cfimmon people would come into their
own under the banner of Socialism.
The laws of this and other coun
tries were attacked by the rector on
the ground that they were barbaric,
un-Christian and -un-democratlc As
an Illustration in proof of the asser
tion that the laws of this country are
un-democratlc, the Rev Mr. Reese
called attention to .the fact that de
spite of the great sentiment in favor
of the recall of officers In the event
that thov failed to do their duty,
a large number of tho senators of the
vanous statefc supported the presi
dent of the I'nited States In oppos
ing the recall of tho judges whom
the people had chosen.
I The preacher prefaced his sermon
' with the statement that nearly all of
His life had been spent 5d Intimate
association with the working class,
and especially tho union working
man He was unreserved in his praise
' of the accomplishment of union labor
and frank In pointing out the defects
of labor These be siid, were chief- (
v in the belief of a great manv work
ir.smen that the church was the en
emv, rather than the friend, of union
labor, with the resulLs that the mor
als of the worklngmen were deter
iorating. Somewhat startling was
his declaration that the condition or
the worklngman is infinitely worse at
present than it was n00 years ago.

After two hoursj and three minutes of hRm
desperate defense, Hackenschmidt ad- 'H
mitted his defeat. M
Drawn by the promise of a finish
struggle this afternoon, thousands of 'fl
wrestling enthusiasts have gathered 'll
from all corners of America and even JiR
from Europe. Hundreds of visitors 'JRI
were turned away from hotels last j
night, unable to secure accommoda- il
tions, and many of them spent tho lll
night near the 'baseball park, standing
in line to obtain general admission 'Rl
tickets From the east came many, ''iH
and the Pacific coast contributed its JH
' quota, but it remained for Iowa, tho M
, home state of the champion, to send BH
the largest delegation. Humboldt, SH
where Gotch has lived since boyhood, )RH
. was represented by nearly all of its M
male population. il
Late last night, the Une began to H
form for the ticket sale, opening at 11 IH
o'clock this morning. Scores stood. H
In line waiting their opportunity to jRRRJ
sell their places or dispose of their jH
tickets at a premium. Early ticket NH
sales indicated that by far the largest lH
crowd that ever witnessed a wrestling 'ftl
match would be In the park when the jjH
men entered the ring at 3 o'clock. Re- fl
served seats were snapped up In large rRfl
quantities by late arrivals, A con- hRrI
I servatlve. estimate placed tjie throng -iH
which will jam the park at 30,000. '- jH
It -was calculated early today that tfll
I $50,600 had already reached the box JRSH
koffice. This amounL it was believed, fH
r would be swelled, to 7-,000 before ffl
j. the match- begins, while somo pre- 'H
dieted that the gate . receipts would jjl
reach $100,000. H
i There was a different spirit In the )R
J camps of the rivals ajL breakfast. jM
Gotch was all confidence. He an- mRRJ
nounced that he would take a brisk H
walk and rest nntll time to go to the lH
arena. He spent much of bis time 'yM
greeting his Iowa admirers, smiling, jM
telling them that he would be the H
t victor. '11

was extremely nervous. R
"Hackenschmidt is nervous, but his RJ
nervousness does not come from fear, H
but from eagerness," said Dr. F. B. jH
Roller, the foreign inader's chief B
trainer '"His worry Is not because of H
Gotch, but to get into the ring and H
have It over with. If he loses, he will RRRj
lose honorablbv to a better man; H
but he won't give up or hold out," lH
"Gotch is' in the best condition of R
