Rev Noble S Elderkin Secretary

Utah Dear Sir
In reply to your letter ot Nomn
bor 30th asking mo to prohibit the t
boxing contest scheduled for the Wool
Growers convention will say I have
been looking up tho law and 1 find no
law authorizing the mayor of now
city In Utah to prohibit a boxing con
lest such as the board of control oC
the National Wool Growers conven
tion assures me the ulllvanCollins
boxing contest will be on the evening
of January 7th 1910 1 am further
assured that there Is no intention of
pulling off a prize fight It is my
Intention to attend said boxing con
test and If it develops Into a prize
fight I shall certainly stop the con
test Immedlatel 1 cannot under
stand why your association objects to I
a scientific illustration of the manly
art of selfdefense and remains silent I
on that most brutal of all contests
THE FOOTBALL GAME
Where one man is injured in a box
ing contest over one hundred are in
jured in a football game Hero is
the football record for sixty days
from October 1st to December 1st
1009 as given by that great authority
The Literary Digest Thirty deaths
216 players injured 12 broken collar
bones S broken noses 12 broken legs
10 broken rits 9 broken arms 19
broken ankles 13 broken shoulders S
broken wrists S broken fingers 6
broken hands and 3 broken jaws
This Is not a list of the casualties of
a battle remarks the Washington
Star but merely the score of an ath
letic game
I have seen such debasing brutality
in football playing that I have been
forced to withdraw my children from
the game yet I have seen an Ogden
preacher referee a football game I
shall be pleased to join the Ministerial
association in setting a better ex
ample for our youth but in doing that
I would desire to wipe out first that
which Is most brutal and debasing I
believe the football game produces
more sluggers and fighters than all
other games combined Why not
strike at tho root of the evil to begin
with if there is a desire to take way
from our youth the love of the brutal

I DOLLY DIMPLES RRESr
In Los Angeles With Her Husband and Manager and All Are in Jail
Awaiting Ogden Police Officials to Bring Them Back to Ogden
They Had Dolly Captured by Themselves and Took the
Standards Money With ThemDetective Pender
and Chief Browning on the Road to Bring
Back the Swindlers
I
On November 10th a young lady al
leged she had captured Miss Dolly
Dimples and made an affidavit stating
that she had captured Miss Dolly Dim I
ples in accordance with the rules laid J
down by the Standard Miss Dolly
Dimples made an affidavit that she had
been captured by the young lady
Miss Beatrix Musscr as claimed by I
that lady After looking over the af
fidavits the manager of this paper
saw that both of them under oath
slated that there was no collusion un
derstanding or agreement between the
panics as to the capture of said Dolly
Dimples and promptly Issued a check
for 300 which the young lady cashed
at the First National Bank The man
agement at the time believed that
everything was honest and just In
connection with the matter The next
day after Dolly Dimples her husband
and manager had left the city the man
ager of this paper became suspicious
and called in Chief Browning and De
tective Peuder and laid the case before
them The police officials were ad
vised to be very careful because the
parties had made an oath that there
was no collusion whatever and there
fore probably if they had made false
statements under oath would continue
to make them Little incidents which
led up to the discovery of the plot
cannot be told at the present lime be
cause the police officials think it best
to withhold the evidence until the
case comes up for trial Tho result
of the police investigations show that
after the young lady had cashed the
check at the bank she turned all the
money over to the Dolly Dimples com
bination and received In return 20
for her share In the work She was
however to have been paid 25and
It was the failure to par her the ex
tra 5 that led to the exposure of the
whole plot
Through the instrumentalities of
this paper Dolly Dimples combination
was shadowed and followed through
out tho whole western country
through California into San Francisco
and finally down to Los Angeles where
they were arrested In a newspaper
oflico The parties are now In jail
awaiting the police officials of this
city to convoy them to Ogden for trial
This paper has given many contests
to the people of Ogden and it has al
ways given what it jiromiscd and thIs
Is the first time that a contract has
been made by which the Standard as
well as the people have been cheated
This paper does not bring action
against the Dolly Dimples combina
tion to get back the 300 because we
offered the reward and arc not en
titled to the money which should go
to the person capturing Dolly Dimples
whoever she may be but this paper
owes it to itself as well as to the
public that any contest it pulls off
shall be honestly and fairly conduct
ed and if anybody connected with
the contest is unfair and unjust it Is
the duty of tho paper to see that the
guilty parties are punished
Dolly Dimples pulled off a similar
contest in Salt Lake City and the Salt
Lake paper yesterday morning an
nounced thai it would gladly give an
additional 300 for the conviction of
the parties
Some of the enemies of this paper
and its manager have been trying to
intimate that this paper and its man
ager were a party to the deception
practiced In order to show our ene
mies that this paper does not do that
kind of business and can prove Itself
clean at all times William Glasmann
has sworn to the warrant and com
plaint which has resulted in the ex
posure of the entire plot to not only
rob the Standard out of 300 but to
cheat the public who had a right to
expect that the matter would be hon
estly and justly conducted
This paper may pull off many other
contests In the future and they must
all be justly and fairly conducted By
maintaining the confidence of the peo
ple is the only way a newspaper can
I successfully conduct such contests
This paper has already been request
ed to drop the matter and allow the
exposure to settle the case This pa
per however decided on bringing the
Dolly Dimples combination back to
Ogden and wiHforce them td bo tried
in court It possible Some of the law
yers say that it is not a crime to have
done as the Dolly Dimples combina
tion did That is a question for the
officials to decide and not this paper
This paper proposes to prove beyond
the shadow of a doubt and to the sat
isfaction of every honest man that
when It gives a contest to par out
monoy there are no strings attached
to the money

i
I Washington Dec 12 Chinas great
I strides toward civilization are strik
ingly exemplified in the governments
efforts to establish a modern educational
I
tional system throughout the Empire
according to information contained In
I a leport from ViceCouneul W H Dor
soy at Shanghai
I The system is similar to that used
in Japan and when carried out it will
I compare favorably with that of any
other country The one great ob
stacle according to the report is the
lack of qualified teachers and the gov
ernment is holding out substantial in
ducements to any who are capable of
doing this work
Aside from the new government In
stitutions there arc two other classes
of schools in China tho old style
schools and the mission schools I
The old style schools which date
back to the time of Confucius or ear
lier are found throughout the Empire I
Their number Is beyond computation
every village and hamlet has one or
more It is in them that the largest
number of youths still receive their
education and It will probably be a
long time before all of them are su
perseded by schools of modern learn
ing
They are not a part of any govern
ment educational system nor arc they
under any government regulation or
supervision They are really private
schools opened in a room of an or
dinary reed adobe or brick nouso by
one of the literati under the old reg
ime who In most cases was born and
reared In the neighborhood The
teachers collect their pupils and are
paid by subscription from the par
ents and by presents from the pupils
at the great feasts Out of these prim
itive institutions barn come some of
the great men of China

trial on a charge of murder of Groce
and Cannon the Americans recently

nor of Maryland today addressed the
senate at length
Senator Rayners speech stirring
and denunciatory in tone and charac
terized by dramatic fervor was an In
spiring arraignment of Zelaya whom
he designated as one of the criminals
of the age
What I am concerned in now said
Senator Rayner 9s not the question
of the belligerent rights of the rev
olutionists or in case of their suc
cess their recognition either as the
do factor or the do jure government
but in tho speedy apprehension and
punishment of Zelaya
This desperado is everything the
secretary of state says about him and

knew what is known in official circles
in reference to his general depravity

probably tho most despicable figure
that has ever been In their midst
Many Kinds of Rogue
If he wore simply a highwayman
we might identify him if he were
simply a tyrant who oppressed the
people for the purpose of robbing
theme might particularize him If
hc wore a usurper who was only hold
ing on to power so long as there was
any money in the treasury la steal ou
any further territory that lie IIlIlcf1
sack for private plunder vo could I
assign him a proper place In the ranKs I
of home of his predecessors and if I
he were purely an assassin who re
garded murder as a legitimate profes I
sion through whIch he could despoil
his victims of their possessions until
the time came for him to flee from
the hands of retributive justice Hi
would be easy also for any one ac
quaintod with the political history of
Nicaragua to classify him
He Is however all of these things
combined In the school ot corrup
tion dishonor perfidy and crime he
stands without a peer and exhibits
in one glow of associated liaimouy tho
pride of every mcdel and the perfec
tion of every master
Private Vices Infamous
T have been reliably informed that
the vices of his private life arc more
infamous in their indescribable details
than theiniquities of his public ca I
reer Such a creature as this deserves
the execration of mankind 1
I Now as the culminating infamy of
I
his administration trampling upon ev
ery instinct of humanity in violation I
of universal law in defiance of those
precepts of the intci national code
which have been recognized ever since
the night of barbarism receded before
the rays of civilization he has put
to torture and then to death two
American citizens who were not gull
ty of treason who were not spies but
whom he had captured as prisoners of
war in the army of the revolutionists
This act was not only the act of a
fiend but was an insult to the honor
of this republic and cannot remain
unavenged i
Zelaya Must Answer I
It Is absolutely preposterous for Ins
Indemnity Indemnity
us to talk about
nity is no recompense for murder It
is said we ought to break off official i
communication with his accredited
representatives Wo have already I
done that and that amounts to noth
ing and it is a matter of absolute
unconcern to him
Then it is said we ought to de
clare war against Nicaragua I think
that Is unnecessary
This government is a cowardly
government if it does not make an
example of Zelaya before the ey w
of the civilized world This case will
not admit of any trifling or conces
sions If two American citizens have
been murdered by Zelaya then ho
must pay the penalty of his crimes
Once spread before tho American
people the details of the execution
and our people will rise In arms and
demand retribution
Ths Country Must Act
If Belaya had the right to eon
once these men to death and execute
them in cold blood then wo must ac
knowledge that right and recognize
it before the nations of the earth If
he did not have that right this gov
ernment is his accuser and if he is
guilty he must be awarded the doom
and fato that ho deserves so that
every tyrant on tlil earth in every
nationality under tho sun and In
