f J-s Where Money Is Coming Prom.
Friends of the United States deputy
jj marshals In Salt Lake will be tickled
II I when they find that they have obtained
' tickets for the next Yotitig; Men's Re-
5j publican club's outing free, gratis and
for nothing, while less fortunate people
i i "will have to pay 50 cents apiece for the
v ! pleasure of attending.
1 , ,j In the absence of United States
' $C$ti Marshal Hcywood 100 of these tickets
' were brought to his office for him to
; sell. Whoever brought them to the office
did not seem to think it necessary to
; emphasize the fact that they were to
be sold, and Deputy Marshal Page, who
was In the office at the time, thought
that they were to be given away. Ac
, cordlngly, they were distributed right
and left, until all were disposed of.
"When the Marshal came back some
i . one telephoned over from the Young
I ' Men's Republican club and asked how
j many of the tickets he had yold.
.; "What tickets?" asked Mr. Heywood.
"Those hundred tickets for the Young
Men's Republican club."
The Marshal turned to hl9 deputy.
!. "Howard, did you sell any tickets for
'!' the Young Men's Republican club?"
' j "I didn't sell any," replied Page, "but
i j I gave a hundred away to those I could
, ' 1 j, persuade to take 'em. You don't mean
jl those tickets were to be sold, do you?"
'. . Then the whole story developed and
, now the committee of the club Is much
, ( exercised aa to who shall pay $50 for the
i; tickets that were so generously dls

For thirty minutes last evening tho

The man in the case. M. J. Frankland,
manager of Ottinger's ticket brokerage
office, tella of his adventure as follows:
Conductor Objected to Dog.
"I wa3 given a littlo cockor spaniel
puppy and started homo with it. At the
corner of First South and Main I got
on the front platform of car 77, holding
the dog ln my arms. Before the car
started tho conductor came up to mo
and said. 'You can't ride with that
dog.' I asked him why, and lie Bald It
was against the rules of the company.
I asked him to show mo any rule to
that effect, but ho could not do so. I
also tendered him 5 cents for myself
and another nickel for the dog. He re
fused to take the money.
"They held a consultation and tho
conductor called a policeman In plain
clothes. The fly cop said, 'I will havo
to arrest you.' I said, 'On what charge
do you arrest me? I don't know ni nr.,.
law or ordinance that I have violated,
and I refuse to be arrested wltho'dt a
Passengers Were Sympathetic.
"In the meantime the car full of pas
sengers was standing still. Tho pas
wngers were on my side and waited
to see the thing through. After awhile
the police came up again and said he
would have to arrest me. I determined
that he should get a warrant. He did
not know what charge to make, so he
backed out again.
"Then the conductor, his name is J
O. Brunson, said, 'I will have to put you
? , , J, of?erc1 nIrn my fare again and
told him he would have to put me off
by force. He then took hold of me and
pushed me off tho car. When we were
on the ground he struck at me and
knocked me down.
"Will Bring Suit.
"I got on the next car with my dog.
standing on the front platform, paid
my fare and the conductor did not say
a word to me. Tomorrow morning I
will see my lawyer and bring suit for
damages against the company. I want
to llnd out whether a citizen has any
rights that the company can be com
pelled to respect."
Rules Prohibit Dogs.
Superintendent W. P. Read of the
street railway company said last even
ing that ho had received no report on
the case from the conductor.
"Our rules," he said, "prohibit the
carrying of dogs on street cars without
a special permit, and these are seldom
granted. The rule applies to dogs
which are carried as well as those
which are led."

Detroit, Mich., 'disappeared suddenly
last Monday, and his unmarried sis

very anxious In regard to his where
abouts or what may have befallen
Arrived Sunday Night.
The brother and sister arrived lato
Sunday night and took quarters at tho
Salt Lake house, Second West and
Second South streets. About noon
Monday Air. Savage left the lodging
house, saying that he was going to
luncheon, and that after partaking of
tho meal ho would return to He down
for a time. Miss Savage left about
the same time to take in some of tho
sights of the city, and upon returning
to the house several hours later it was
to find that her brother had not been
thero during her absence, and she has
since been unable to find tho slightest
clue to his whereabouts.
Traveling for His Health.
The missing man was traveling for
the benefit of his health, which had
been Impaired by overwork in a seden
tary occupation, and his sister was
with him that he might bo less lonely
on tho trip. Pie had talked of leaving
alone to Reno, Nev r for a few days,
nnd had spoken, upon leaving her Mon
day, of looking up the rates to that city
while ho was out, but Miss Savage feels
quite sure that he would not have
started on the trip without at least
leaving some word for her.
He had some money on his person
at the time of his disappearance, and,
while the amount was not large, It
would have been sufficient, no doubt,
to tempt the unprincipled to take ad
vantage of the man's weakened condi
tion, with the opportunity to do so.
Reported to the Sheriff.
Miss Savage yesterday reported her
fears at the Sheriff's ofllce and Inquiry
Is being made with the hope of get
ting some trace of the missing man's
whereabouts. He Is described as being
31 years old, five feet eight Inches in
height, and weighing 130 pounds; hair
dark, tinged with gray. He woro a

Another Plan for
Council Committee Accopts a Com
promise Which Will Be "Up
For four hours or more tho City Coun
cil, in committee of tho wholo. discussed
and listened to discussion on the Brig
ham street paving question last night,
and although a kind of plan was eventu
ally decided upon, it 13 likely to fall
through Monday night whon tho report
of tho commlttco Is submitted to tho
Council. Nearly every one of tho almost
Innumerable plans that have been pro
posed during tho post fivo years was rc
forrcd to at length, each by Its special
advocates. Tho .Council chamber waa
filled with model plans and diagrams and
property owners from Brlgham atrect.
In a little discourse of two hours' dura
tion, City Engineer Snow sot forth tho
advantages of his plan, which was au
thorized somo tlmo ago by tho Council,
over tho plans suggested by Col. E, A.
Wall nnd the other members of the board
of public works and of the abutters on
East South Temple strcot. When ho had
finished Col. Wall took tho floor nnd en
larged upon the .plan of the board of
public works, nnd then Spencer Clawson,
chairman of tho old board of publlo
works, attempted to convinco tho Coun
cllmcn and othero thaV his plan was far
superior to any of tho othors. When
these gentlemen had finished it was tho
property owners' hand to take a turn
and throatcn tho city with damngo suits
If this plan or that plan wero or wero not
Tho plans of Col. Wall and of tho City
Engineer aro quite similar ln general out
line. Tho former proposes a general In
cllno or slopo from tho fence line on tho
north side to tho fenco lino on tho south
sldo and does away with tho retaining
walls at A nnd B street nocessary to tho
plan of Mr Snow. The plan of tho board
of public works also provides for eighteen
Inches fall between tho two strcot car
tracks In tho center of tho 'strcot. Tho
plan of Mr. Clawson contemplates tho
building of a retaining wall ln tho cantor
of the street and tho complete separation
of tho north from the south side.
After tho outside parties had had their
full say tho Councllmen took tho bull by
the horns. Nearly aa many motloris wero
mado as there woro Councllmen presont,
but finally a substitute for tho wholo was
suggested by Mr. Black, which was
adopted, Fornstrom being tho only mem
ber voting contrary. Mr. Black's motion
provided that tho committee report to
tho Council that tho plan of tho City
Engineer bo accepted on tho south sldo
and that of the board of public works bo
accepted on tho north side, and that tho
ralso from tho curb on 'tho south sldo
not exceed thrco and one-half feet at any
Among tho property owners present
