I ALMOST TRAGEDY
IN A BIG STORE
Attempted Murder at
Keith-O'Brieo's,
August Thiele Fires Three
Shots at C. V. Worth
ington. Assault Committed Without Warning;
in Crowded Store Victim Beats'
Assailant Down.
A-man nnmcd August Thlelo attempted
to murder Charles V. "Wbrthlnrjton, adver
tising manager for t!io Kolth-O'Brlen de
partment store, yesterday afternoon about
4 o'clock.
Mr. Worthlngton was In hk? office-,
which Is on tho north balcony and which
Ib not enclosed, when tho attempt on
his llfo was made. Ho was looking over
somo advertising matter when ho heard
footsteps. Quickly glancing ovor his
uhoulder ho saw tho man approaching, ho
ays, with the rovolver lovelcd at hlin.
Fired Without a Word.
Eye-witnesses and Worthlngton eay
that the assailant tired without a word
of warning. Tho shot missed his Intended
victim, who rushed toward Thlelo, who
was probably ten feot away. Boforo
Worthlngton could reach his assailant a
econd snot was fired.
Grasped Sand With Gun.
Tho two mon then grappled, "Worthlng
ton having grasped tho hand of Thlelo
which held the revolver. Then followed
an awful Htrugglo, during which a third
Hhot was fired. Kono of them struck
"Worthlngton. Tho struggle continued for
a brief period, whon Worthlngton suc
ceeded In throwing his antagonist tothji
floor. - ,
Struggled on tho Floor.
Hero tho struggle continued. Thiele all
the while attempting to point the gun
at his Intended victim. But Worthlngton
field the man's wrist and no further shots
were fired. Tho store wa crowded with
leoplo at tho time. Considerable excite
ment prevailed.
Heports Rang Loud.
As tho office is not enclosed, tho re
ports rang loud. Worthlngton did not
cull for help, and It was therefore diffi
cult to locato the shots and several min
utes elapsed before help arrived. Tho
weapon was then with some difficulty
wrenched from Thlele's hand, whereupon
Worthlngton released him.
IiUiew Each. Other as Boys.
Thiole and Worthlngton knew each
other as boys In Evansvllle, lnd. Griev
ances, real or imaginary, over which he
had brooded, together with the fact that
lie had been drinking. Thlelo admits, led
him to attempt to commit the crime.
Private Detective George Sheets took
Thlelo to the street and turned him over
to Mounted Patrolman Horaco Heath.
Thiele Is Incoherent.
The above Is the story a gathered by
Chief of Pollco William Lvnch and Detec
tive George Chase from Worthlngton and
from eye-witnesses. Thlelo himself at
tompted to give another version of the
affair. Ho was hysterical Immediately
after his Incarceration In a cell, and ho
told his atory Incoherently, ono moment
using vile language toward the man he
had assaulted and tho next saying ho had
como to the Ktorc. to shako hands with
him and to wish him well.
Thlelo alleged he had started to talk
to Worthlngton, when the latter grappled
with him. took Thlele's gun from tho lat
tcr's pocket, and tried with It to ahoot
Thicle. In tho faco of this story Thlelo
admits that ho had been brooding over
difficulties. Just before going to the
Xelth-0Brlon Htore ho obtained tho re
volver at the Salt Lako Hardwaro com
pany, tho same weapon with which tho
shooting was done.
Walked Through Crowd of Shoppers.
When Thiele entered tho store he asked
at once for Worthlngton. Tho clerk from
whom ho lnqulrod pointed to tho balcony.
Thlolo walked down through tho crowds
of women shoppers who were In the
aisles and went upstairs to tho balcony,
Worthlngton was standing looking over
somo advortlHlng work. He heard the
ntop behind him, as-was told, and turned;
then camo the Htrugglo and tho shots.
Theso were heard by tho people In tho
ntoro, and excitement ensued. Meantlmo
telephone messages wero sent to pollco
headquarters. Whon Officers Price and
Heath arrived they found a crowd about
tho entrance Heath got his prisoner
from Sheets and took him to tho station.
Thlelo then walked straight and acted
coolly. Ho talked qulotly and did jiot
bear tho appearance of n drunken man.
But before he had been In his cell more
than an hour ho was weeping hysterical
ly, and apparently had given way to the
Influcnco of whisky.
Thiele Is Known Here.
Thiole worked for tho Salt Lake Hard
waro company thrco years ago. Ho later
worked as traveling salesman for tho Co
operative Wagon and Machine company.
At that time ho and Worthlngton occa
sionally saw ono another, but no troublo
is over known to have occurred. At tho
time of yesterday's assault Worthlngton
did not even know that Thiole was In the
West. Ho did not really recognize tho
man until after the latter had tho rcol
vcr In his very face and was pulling tho
trigger. Thlelo Is a much larger man
than Worthlngton and tho wonder Is that
the latter succeeded In throwing him.
Worthington Has Good Record.
C. V. Worthlngton has been 'In Salt
Lako City soven years. He was formerly
employed as a cartoonist on Tho Trlbunb
for thrco years and later was associated
with tho Dally Reporter printing plant.
Later ho became advertising manager for
the Kelth-O'Brlcn company.
Mr. Worthlngton is a man of exemplary
habits and Is held In esteem by his em
ployers and by those with whom ho Is
acquainted.

MIND OVER MATTER.
ANNA EVA FAY AT THE GRAND
THEATER.
Remarkable Exhibitions of Hind
Rending Matinee This Afternoon
for Ladies Only.
If possible, the crowd at the second
night's performance of "Somnolency,"
given by Miss Anna Eva Fay. at thp
Grand, was larger than on Monday.
Miss Fay's net of mind reading1, or
whatever else you may wish to call
It. was even better than Monday, Borne
of her replies creating little less than
a sensation.
"I don't know whether It Is the power
of mind over matter, or whether Miss
Fay Is really able to read the questions
of these people," said a physician at
the close of the performance last night.
"But I want to say here that she an
swered my question, that 1 wrote at
home and carried to the theater In my
pocketbook There Is surely something
to It. T was thinking of my question,
but I did not even remove It from my
pocketbook until after she had read It,
and while the reading' was not word for
word. It was my question and I believe
that It was "correctly answered."
-An ofllcer from Fort Douglas wrote
a question asking how many men he
had in his company, and was astounded
when he received ' the correct reply.
One of the bellboys of the Kenyon
hotel was off duty last night long
enough to attend the performance, and
he wanted to know who was the laziest
boy In Salt Lake. His surprise may
well be imagined when Miss Fay gave
a good description of the boy himself,
and asked hlin to please be more
prompt in answering her calls in fu
turek Many serious questions were asked
Miss Fay. and also many with a ludi
crous side Questions regarding; mining-
propositions were many, and in
several cases advice was given, while
In others the writers were told to ad
dress letters to Miss Fay at tlfe Ken
yon and they would be answered.
John Wilson, an old man, asked what
he should do for his feet, as he was
suffering badly from rheumatism. He
was told that If be would have his
spine examined the trouble might be
remedied, as the trouble lay there rath
er than In rheumatism. As the old man
left the theater hp avowed his Inten
tion of following; the advice given and
consulting a physician the next day.
Several people asked regarding the
present status of the application for a
fifty-year extension of the franchises
of tho Utah Light and Railway com
pany, and Miss Fay answered that tho
fifty-year extension Avould not be
granted, but that the franchise, 'in a
modified form, would be passed.
Miss Fay's pnrt of the evening's per
formance was much longer than on the
opening night, several hundred ques
tions being; answered, and apparently
to the satisfaction of all. Mrs. Heard
asked how she had lost a 510 and a
$5 gold-piece, and was told through
carelessness, and advised to rccurc
paper money In place of gold whenever
possible.
In addition to Miss Fay's exhibition
of her marvelous powers there is a
pleasing programme of vaudeville, end
ing with some good moving pictures.
The conviction is growing in Salt
Lake that there Is something more
than mere trickery in the exhibition,
and there was a marked Improvement
In the audience and tho manner In
which the llttlo woman was greeted.
This afternoon there will be a mati
nee for women only, at which Miss
Fay will answer all the questions pos
sible. No men will be allowed nnd
the most Intimate questions may be
asked- with perfect freedom.

LIGHT PEOPLE'S
STRONG HOLD-UP
Will (live No Land to
City.
Simply Right of Way for
Conduit at Big Cot
tonwood. Won't Even. Permit City to Produce
Its Own Power Startling Disclos
ures In Franchise Matter.
That tho Utah Light and Railway com
pany doc3 not Intend to convey to the
city Its lands around tho old Granite
paper mill In consideration of the exten
sion of Its franchises, was tho stunning
disclosure mado nt yesterday's meeting of
the franchise committee Neither does the
cloy acquire water power rights In Big
Cottonwood, it seems, nlthouph at the
meeting of last Wednesday evening J.o
Grand l'oung, council for tho monopoly,
slated specifically that tho city could
make such use of the power at Big Cot
tonwood as it might elect, except to sell
It to a rival company.
Lo Grand Young must have been mis
taken on Wednesday evening. Tor at tho
meeting of the City Council committee
yesterday bo explained that tho lands of
tho company at Cottonwood were not to
bo conveyed, and that If the city proposed
to use the water to generate power for
any public purpose th company would
refuse to grant anything In the way of
privileges.
Mr. Young must be right on this
ground, for Fernstrom, leading council
for tho franchise grabbers, confirmed the
position announced.
Will Grant Right of Way.
Mr. Young further announced the al
leged generosity of his company. It would
grunt tho city a right-of-way over Its
lands at Cottonwood la consideration
for an extension of Its franchise for
fifty years, and If the city was real
good to the company, the city might,
at the expiration of those fifty years,
erect a power plant and use the water
power at Cottonwood. Not until the ex
piration of tlfty years, however, and the
city must also enlor Into an agreement
not to erect any power plunl for any pub
lic pm-pose at any other point, not even
ut Parley's canyon, where provision for
such a plant bus already been agreed and
decided upon
Also, the average consumer Is not going
lo be able to buy his electric light for the
price of 10 cents per kilowatt. That was
not the Intention. lie will pay 12 cents,
bueauso the company's accountants llnd
It difficult lo make calculations on any
other basis. If he Is thrifty, however,
nnd will plank up the amount of the bill
beforo the 7lh of the succeeding month,
the consumer will get a discount that
will make the cost to him only 10 cents.
Public Is Mistaken.
The meeting Indicated that the public
has been mistaken In thinking that It had
forced any concessions from the appli
cants for a perpetual franchise on the
public utilities of the city. The demands
are Just about what they originally were,
and the bald announcement was made by
counsel for tho company that the only
rights to be granted In Big .Cottonwood
and which It values at JloO.OOO, is a right-of-way
for the city's conduit
There were present ut the meeting.
Fernstrom. Hewlett. A. J. Davis. Wood.
K II. Davis. Tuddenham. Wells, Hobday.
Black and Preece of the City Council and
j nuge iey anq assistant tny Attorney
Bramel; for the company were Messrs
Haywanl. Bead, Cashier Wells. Douglas
Swan nnd Lo Grand Young.
Representing the city were Judge Dey,
Councilman Black. Assistant City Attor
ney Bramel. Councllmeti A. J. Davis.
Hobday, Dean and Wood.
Line-Up of the Team.
The company's representatives were
Fernstrom, Lo Grand Young. Councllmcn
Wells and Cashier ells of the company;
Preece, Tuddenham, E. II. Davis. Superin
tendent Road of the street railway, and
Mr. Uayward. the consulting engineer.
This was the llnc-up of the teams.
The discussion opened with a considera
tion of section G of the draft of the pro
posed ordinance, and especially that part
which provides for the paving of those
portions of the streets used for street car
trafllc, as defined in sections 25U and 2G0
of the Revised Statutes. Lo Grand Young
insisted that the statutes themselves
be set forth In the ordinance. Judge
Dey said that Mr. Young had exhibited a
desire to dictate Just bow the frnnchlao
should be drawn, and objected to that line
of procedure Judge Young denied this,
but was llatly contradicted by Judge Dey.
and his actions rehearsed and the attor
ney for the monopoly escaped by grace
fully backing down.
Hewlett wanted to have a dcflnlton of
tho word "novation," used In the draft,
and was Informed of Its meaning, and
section 6 was allowed to go through with
a simple reference to the statutes quoted.
Transfers Aro Fixed.
At the suggestion of Councilman Black
the committee reverted to section 5, which
provides for the transfers lie Insisted
that the transfers should bo good on
all connecting lines. This brought out
a discussion that showed plainly that
such a regulation would make It possible
for patrons to make a round trip from
their homes lo the business center for
ono faro, and at the suggestion of Hob
day such a chango was mado as would
permit passengers on Second South,
west-bound, to take transfers to a Third
South car east-bound, provided tho pas
senger debarked at Seventh East. This
would give patrons tho chance of a con
tinuous trip to Caldor's Park by walking
ono block from Second South.
Sections 7 and S were discussed and
passed without material modification,
but section 9, which provides sanitary
measures for tho street cars and Imposes
a penalty of ?100 for violation, brought a
protest from Lc Grand Young. During
the discussion Superintendent Road ex
plained that tho company was now spend
ing $700 a month cleaning its cars, and
contradicted a statement by A. .T. Davis
that Home of the cars now running had
not been cleaned for two weeks.
A modification was admitted which pro
vides that the cars shall go out on their
runs cleaned each day.
Council More Easily Handled.
Sections 10 and 11 wore not extensively
discussed, but when section 12 was
reached changes, not apparently so Im
portant, wero Insisted upon by Judge
Young. Tho section provides that tho
placing of poles should be done junder tho
supervision and direction of the City En
gineer, and to tho satisfaction of tho
Street Supervisor, and not otherwise.
Judge Young desired that this be changed
to read under tho dlroctlop of tho City
Council. His purpose was not apparent,
but was construed by those opposed to the
franchlso as an Indication that the City
Council would bo more easily handled In
tho matter of the company's selections
than any engineer who cared for his repu
tation. How Reduction Works.
Section LI, in regard to responsibility for
injuries and damage, was acceptable, but.

The regular monthly meeting of tho
ISoard of Education last evening brought
out an attendance of six members, the?e
being President Oscar W. Moyle, A. G.

Byron Cummlngs and I-L. C, Edward?.
After the record of the meeting cf March

ber of communications wero road and re
ferred to the various committees.
Applications for tho purchase of the
Longfellow, Whittier, Thirteenth ward
and Irving school properties, brought out
bids of $GCO0, s:5Q0 and 15 for the Long
fellow properly. The committoo recom
mended that tho bid of William McLnch
Hn of $5500 for the Whittier property be
accepted, and upon tho vote of the six
members present It was so ordered. The
b!da on the other properties were Ignored.
The committee on teachers and school
work submitted a list of supplK-s recom
mended and aaked that associate examin

ordered by a unanimous vote.
Tho committoo on finance submitted
that certain coupons of "series 3" of the

so ordered.

The eommlttcp on finance recommended
that vouchers be Issued covering the cur

amounting to J5)Jt6.S3. Tho Il3t of the ac

and the bills were approved for paynunt.
A report from the ireasiror showing
a balance on hand of 5103,3 M.S2 was sub
mitted and ordered llled.
A communication was received from the
family of the lute William Plnnev. su
perintendent of buildings, thanking the
board for the iloral tributes that were
presented at the funeral.
Other routine matters of minor Impor
tance wen- disposed of and adjournment
was taken.
The salo of the Whittier school prop
erty to William McLachlln for J.xttO Is
regarded aa a very satisfactory disposi
tion of the property. The price seems
to be up to market values, tho property
being situated on Fifth South between
West Temple and First "West, and ad
Joining the old Sovcnth ward meeting
house. The advantage locallv of Mcljach
lin's acquisition Is the fact that one of
the bidders for the piece was a well
known Greek labor agent.
when section 14, which provides for the
rates of lighting, was reached, the hand
of the company was shown and the fact
was demonstrated that the reductions
which tho company bus been holding out
as an inducement for tho granting of tho
peculiarly special and exclusive privileges
which It demands aro not Intended.
In fact, to be effective. In the draft
of the ordinunce printed In Tho Trlbuno
on Sunday morning the company had
agreed to a Hat charge of 11.20 per kilo
watt for Incandescent lamps. This. Lc
Grand Young yesterday Insisted, should
be changed lo 12 cents. Graciously,
however, the onus of a Hat 10-cent
rate should bo given to those who paid
promptly; that Is. before the seventh day
of the month following that for which the
charge wau made
Employees Not Benefited.
Hobday begged that the company con
cede tho period designated as prompt pay
ment to be extended to the- 1.1th. "Your
own employees are not paid until the
loth." said he. "and It Is difficult for
many of the consumers of electric
light to have money on hand at such an
unusual lime as the 7lh of the month. I
do not jmy my employees until the 10th.
and many of them could not avail' them
selves of this credit If you limit it lo the
7th."
Young was obdurate, however, and In
sisted that the limit be kept down to the
7th.
Counsel Changes Front.
The sensation of the day was brought
out whin the consideration of section 17
was begun. According to Le Grand Young
and Fernstrom. Mr. Young was In error
when he stated lo the committee of the
citizens and the Council committee last
Wednesday evening in the Council
chamber that the company would convey
its rights and possessions In Big Cotton
wood to the city, in consideration of the
novation of Its present franchises. Also,
his statement that the lands and power'
rights to be conveyed were to be used for
any purpose the elty might elect, regard
less of restrictions by the company, now
appears to have been made In error. It
Is not the Intention to convey the lands
described as belonging to the Utah Light
and Railway company, nor Is It tho In
tention to convey any water power rights
to the city that can bo used for any
power purpose for a period of at least
fifty years from tho 1st of last January.
That Is what Mr. Young said yesterday,
and Fernstrom confirmed It.
Will Give No Land.
Judge Young explained that the com
pany held title to something over 340 acres
of land, and It did not propose to
glvo this for tho franchise. City En
gineer Rlter was called to glvo advice.
Ho stated that the plans of the city
were even now to build a reservoir on
portions of this land. He elucidated
further, that part of the plans were lo
establish a pumping plant with the water
power rights that the company was to
convey to the city.
Mr. Young replied promptly that If tha't
was the Intention of the city the company
would convey nothing to It In Big Cotton
wood. Fernstrom That s our position, exactly.
A J. Davis and others of the Council
men, together with Engineer Rlter and
Judge Dey. Insisted that the considera
tions tendered tho city, and tho plans
that wore laid out by tho Council were all
based on the proposition to convey tho
lands and the power rights to tho city,
and that the plans contemplated the erec
tion of a power plant.
City Can't Produce Power.
Mr. Young then explained that Hie com
pany would agrco to no proposition that
would contemplate the city's producing
Its own power or Its own lights.
Black Your company surely does not
caro where the city erects a power plant,
does It?
Young Yes; we will sell the city such
power as It needs, but tho city Is not to
produco Its own power.
Davis, A. J. Well, you exclude the Par
ley's canyon proposed pocer plant from
that, don't yon? You know (addressing
Fernstrom) that was part of tho now
plans decided on'7
Fernstrom No. I don't remember,
though maybe It was.
Mr. Young further said that the com
pany would accept nothing that con
templated the city's producing any of Its
own power. "This right to tho Big Cot
tonwood water powers will be granted to
you for the proper consideration, but un-.
til tho expiration of fifty years you aro
not to uso It for power purposes."
The Single Consideration.
This appeared to bring the proposition
of tho company down to the single con
sideration that If the Council will grant
all tho demands of the company, tle
latter will grant a right-of-way for a con
duit over Its property at tho mouth of
Big Cottonwood, and fifty ycara hence. If
a Council should bo In power that would
not grant tho cxcluslvo further uso to tho
monopoly, tho city might, begin using
theso acquired rights for tho production
of olectrlcal energy.
At 5 p. m. nn adjournment was taken
until 2:30 today.

(Wakes Various Excuses for

Documents.
These Are Finally Overcome, and
Hearing- in Schettler Criminal '
Case Proceeds.
In Justice Dana T. Smith's court yes
terday was begun the first of the crim
inal suits against B. II. Schettler. Mrs.
Mary Zcier was the complaining witness
and the chargo on which Schettler Is be
ing tried Is that of receiving money know
ing that his bank was Insolvont, which
Is a criminal offense. Tho taking of tes
timony occupied nearly the entire day,
and will be resumed again this morning
at 10 o'clock.
County Attorney Parley P. Chrlstensen
had chargo of tho prosecution, the de
fense being represented by William Ray
of the firm of Rawlins & Hay. Seven
witnesses were sworn, of whom four tes
tified yesterday, the others lo be called
this morning after Receiver R. R. Ander
son has completed his testimony.
More Witnesses Subpoenaed.
It Is known that subpoenas have also
been Issued for several other important
witnesses. Those sworn yesterday were
Mrs Mary Zoler. Mrs. Eliza Inebnlt, An
drew Grundfor. Peter Hansen, the Danish
Consul ut this place. William Hoywood.
expert accountant, and Receiver R. R.
Anderson.
Mrs. Zeler, the first witness placed on
the stand, testified 'to the circumstances
of her dealings with the Schettler bank.
She had deposited in the bank In the
neighborhood of $7CO. $135 of which was
deposited for her bv her sister, Mrs.
Inebnlt, on October 1. 190-1.
Took Both Hands and the Money.
The next witness. Mjy. Inebnlt. testified
that slu tool: the 5133 lo the bank for
her sister on the dute named; that B.
II. Schettler himself received tho money,
and, after entering It upon the books,
took both her bunds and thanked her,
wishing to be remembered by her to the
reat of the fainllj Mrs. Inebnlt said that
she had known Mr Schettler since 1SS9,
and had deposited money In his bank
since ISImJ: that she and her husband and
a crippled ot: kept their savings there.
Anderson Balks on the Books.
Some delay In the taking of testimony
was caused by the. failure of R. R. Ander
son lo bring the bdoks of the bank Into
court. Mr. Anderson said he had been,
subpoenaed by telephone, that nothing
had been suld about the books, and
claimed that the books were under the
order of the court and he had no power
to allow them lo leave his possession.
Justice Smith explained that Inasmuch as
the defer.de bad objected to his testlfvlng
from a certified copy of tho books, they
would have to be produced.
Strong Deputies Secured.
Receiver Arderson still demurred, nnd
as a further excuse said that the books
weighed ICO pounds, and it would be Im
possible for him to curry them. This
point was gotten over, however, by Jus
tice Smith telephoning the Sheriff's office
for two strong deputies to hf-lp the re
ceiver carry the books to the court-room.
An adjournment was then taken until 2
o'clock to give Mr. Anderson nn opportu

Fires Three Shots
at Alleged Rival
Whittakor of Murray Breaks Looss
Again, and Proves a Poor
Shot.
Albert Whlttakcr, the Murray man who
ran amuck somo time ago because of Jeal
ousy about his divorced ' wife, nnd who
was released from a Jail sentence at Mur
ray last Saturday night, added a few
more pages to his record yesterday after
noon by taking three s.hots at his sup
posed rival In the affections of the woman
from whom he has beon legally sepa
rated Whlttakcr wan passing the place of
residence of his lato wife at 5:S0 last
evening and caw Mrs. Whlttakcr wring
ing out clothes and otherwise disposing
of the week's laundry. Tina was on in
nocent enough occupation, hut tho smol
dering anger of Whlttakcr was aroused
by the presence In the proceedings and
the active assistance of ono "Jap" Mov
ers, who la, howovcr, not a Japanese.
Enraged. Whlttaker drew a gun from
his pocket and fired throe shots at Mty
ers, none of which look effect, but all
of which wero close. Deputy White ar
rested Whlttaker and he was brought to
Salt Lake and landed In the county Jail
by Deputy Sharp
Whlttaker claimed that Meyers had
first drawn a gun on him, and the latter
was also brought In and placed In Jn II.
There Is very little 'aith put in tho story
of Whlttaker by the officers, and It Is
expected that Meyers will be released
without unnecessary delay.
The chargo against "Whlttaker. Is assault
with a deadly weapon with Intent to kill,
which removes the case from tho Juris
diction of tho precinct officers under
whom ho was first convicted and sentenced.
Great preparation Is now being made
for a line musical concert at the Feder

of the affair, while Rev. L. A. Brown,
