Kf PERJURY IS ALLEGED
I . AGAINST SOME WITNESSES
fr Plea Made That if Perjurers
Ipji. Were Indicted it Would
jj'r Appear Vindictive.
BtJ$ Si -Well, tho -Utah National bank rob-
Mwi 1 bery, in which $.106,250 disappeared, has
) L .been apparently cleared up by the in-
I dictmcnt of A. W. Nelson, cashier of
Vi, the Jordan State bank and nephew of
r Vi; Joseph Nelson of the Utah National,"
!"t U s?aid u well known Sail Laker to tho
I Stroller on Tuesday. "What do you
j. J suppose he did with it? Of courso 1
i mipposo tho game was -worth the candle
R but there aro many people who beliovo
BfcN ll thnt he is ,n scapegoat. L tell you there
Blr J .ire some queer things about this big
HI F robbery.
' "Here is an institution." he con-
Hl.I tinned, "that was held up, so to speak,
Hkl its elroug box was looted of an mi-
Kil inense sum of money. True, it was not
Bf J your monoy nor mine, but a bank is a
Hrj) fcCini-'public institution. You arc asked
H to deposit vour money there, so aro
Hill hundreds of" others. Great vaults aro
constructed in these banks. Bolts and
Hll ;, bars and time locks are supposed to
Hf protect tho funds of those who deposit
K them. The general supposition is that
Kf" it requires at least two people, and in
4H most instances three or four, to open
B. ; the various combination locks that
'J" guard the doors to these treasure vaults.
B & "It appears, however, that such is
HI x ol iiQ case. Here is a big bauking
HlvJ institution of Salt Lako City. It em-
HP t ploys a large number of people. Tho
Hft T presumption is that all the safeguards
HKl possible would bo taken to not only pro-
Hl&'i tcct tho treasure in tho great vaults,
HM t but that every precaution would hu
HI& rl taken to protect tho employes to free
K S tliom from the tempter should they bo
K (ri iuclined to associate with him. Jt: the
Hit & stories thus far printed since the in-
Hpj c (lictinent was returned are true it would
HVlfilX bccin that all ordinary safeguards, all
HY; , ordinary systems in vogue in all well
Hgif 1 regulated establishments, banks iu par-
Bffi'J t rieular, were set aside, defied, in fact,
gjLttj iu every way, and one person, that a
i J" nephew" of o'ne of the irominont ofli-
Hf ; uials of the bank, given absolute, access
H m lo" the treasure vaults unrestrained iu
mj'i , ' any ninnncr possible.
K. Not Accusing Young Nelson.
He v' " Understand mo, 1 am not saying
that tbo young mau is guilty of tho
ff : thoft or embezzlement of the $106,250
HK '1 from the Utah National bank, for an
'J? indictment docs not mean absoluto
It guilt. A trial court must pass upon tho
UB.tl case afterwards. That is where inno-
wjll ceuce ur guilt is established, bc dc-
HwME' l'eusc having an opportunity to present
t bis or her side of a "case. An indict-
EkI mont is absolutely one-sided. It is
based, uecessarily, upon evidence pre-
K'l'l v.-titil smIpIv- liv n rtrrmoiMil ion. a.nr! tho
I- circumstances which an indicted iudi
V t vidua! might easily clear away cannot
. f bs presented to a grand jury.
T "Jt does strike ine, however, that
I,- y there wan a wonderful laxity of system
I fj if the stories as printed are true. Here
pj jt is a young man 27 years old, is itiar-
-XIl lied, has a wife and a. child. His homo
IvL life is said to have been happy. Tnere
was no domestic trouble. Ihs life was
m At a simple life. He did not according to
jiff vI those who have known him since boy-
llm v, hood, dissipate. He was not a user of
ml tobacco, he had no bad habits, and a
m .i 3ook at bim would show that be was not
If ii i '' a drinking man, therefore what object
Ik iL -v-ould he have to steal 7 What could he
Q 'tf( have done with the' money3. Where is
t III "it?
E IW "Young Nelson was the owner of a
m. ijp' Viig block of shares in the Jordan Slate
y bank, where he was cashier. He was
getting a good salary. There was no
Plb incentive for him to steal, hence it
Ijfj Jooks to me as if he were being made a
Bf' . scapegoat for the person or persons
B who are the real culprits. And I voice,
U 'f J know, the opinion of a large number
of people when T sav this.
What About Perjurers?
K lf "In the JDcseret -Evening News Lo-
R night X notice thai high tribute is paid
'o. United States .District Attorney
ft , '; Booth, and that he, according to the
Mr (l News, is said to be highly pleased at
D; 'i the outcome;. that upon him has fallen
' the task of presenting the evidence to
H1, h ihc jury and drawing it out of wit-
i'l ncsses as tho case proceeded. One of
m. ihc results is that enough evidence to
m w indict several persons for perjur' was
K E brought out, but this course was not
B wa pursued, owing to the possible appear
KL iK auce of vindictiveness. t
WJm "Now, if this is true, if this United
BTH States District Attorney has evidence
gap- enough to indict a number of persons
HmIy for perjury, and heloes not do so, then
H 11 he is derelict in his duty, violates his
HI if. oath of office, is unfit to be a nrose
If ;-;(, cuting official and should resign. There
I 'Mi is no vindictiveneBS in running down
'M$ crime. If there was perjured evidence
J;i presented and if it is true that he kuew

H.tA There must not be favoritism shown.

Hk' a single person of this number but what

Non-Suit Motion Results From
Appeal of Squabble to Dis
IN FIGHT OVER SALARY
Misunderstanding Over Chair of
Botany Results in Wide
Through the granting of a motion for
non-suit in Judge Lewis's division of
the Third District court, Tuesday aft
ernoon, former Prof. Ira D. Cardiff of
tho University 'of Utah lost his action
against former Prof. E. V. Chamberlain,
of tho samo institution, which was
heard on an appeal from the City court,
whero Professor Cardiff secured a
judgment for $350 against Professor
The action grew out of tho employ
ment of Professor Cardiff by Profes
sor Chamberlain to take a position in
the medical department of tho Uni
versity of Utah, Professor Cardiff al
leging that Professor Chamberlain of
fered him n position which would pay
$2000 to $2250 a year, and thereby in
ducing him to como from Columbia uni
vcrsit3', New York, to Utah. After ar
riving here, Professor Cardiff was
given a $1650 position and he sued Pro
fessor Chamborlniu for damages in tho
sum of $i9fl, owing to the differences
On August 25, .1006, Professor Cham
berlain wrote to Professor Cardiff as
"Professor Underwood has recom
mended you to us to take immediate
charge of our ivork in botany during
tho ensuing year. While the position
the first year yields only $1000. 1 have
every confidence that with your quali
fications you would bo given independ
ent charge of the chair of botnny at an
carb' date. The ordinarv professorship
here yields $2000 to. $2250 per year at
present. You would have the help of
one assistant at tho outsot. Should 3'on
bo willing (o accept tho place, kindly
lot mo know at earliest conyenience,
sending with your application any
statement that you may see fit."
Tho reply of Professor Cardiff to this
communication whs to tho effect that
he could not come to Utah for $1000 a
year, but he added: "Tf you will guar
antee me a full professorship, in an in
dependent department, for next year.
1007-lOns. 1 shall be clad to accept."
Professor Chamberlain then sent tho
following telegram to Professor Car
diff: "President agrees to proposi
tion, but salary possibly uqtf maximum
second year: can make additional mon
ev extra work this year; if desire, wire;
should be here seventeenth."
Professor Cardiff accepted this of
fer and came to Utah and. when he
learned that he was to receive only
$1650 a year he brought suit against
Professor' Hiambcrlain for the differ
ence in salaries.
Before filing his action, it is stalod,
Professor Cardiff asked President
Kingsbury if there would be any ob
jection to his filing a suit against Pro
fessor Chamberlain, and, he was told
to fo ahead. Two members of the board
of regents 3lso told Professor Cardiff
to fil his suit if he desired, and he
President Kincsburv testified upon
the stand that he did not authorize
Professor Chamberlain to send the tde
eram in question, and it is claimed that
no person outside of the board of re
gents has a ncht to moke a contract
with a professor.

Cardiff must pay the costs of the two

It is generally known among those
who are intimate with the case that
the suit was not the real cause for the

Three Hundred and Fifty Men of
Fifteenth Infantry Aro Paid
THRIFT OF ENLISTED MEN
, PUZZLING TO CIVILIANS
j Over Half of Departing Hoys
Will Return to Precious
Throe hundrod and fifty privates of
the Fifteenth Infantry, whoso oulist
mcnts expired Tuesday, woro paid
$110,000 by Paymaster Captain Ely of j
the department of tho Colorado. Tho
aggregate meant an average of about
$31-1 tho man, but it was disbursed in
irregular amounts, one rocoiving $8000,
others from $1000 to $n000, and the
remainder sums ranging from $100 to
$500. About $90,000 was paid in sav
ings and bonuses and $20,000 as Tegu
lar compensation. Tho onormous sum
divided among tho 350 men is an elo
quent testimonial to thoir thrift.
That enlisted men should display such
providenco is somewhat inexplicable to
civilians. It is ensily explained, how
over. The paymaster conducts a sort
of bank in which tho private, instead
of drawing his full month's pay, leaves
the main portion. The monoy cams four
per cent, which is computed semi-annually.
During an enlistment a man
can save a considerable sum from his
salary alone. Frequently he encounters
somo fortunate venture, such as a
game of poker, and swells tho princi
pal immensely. In addition, upon dis
charge he is allowed mileage at four
cents from the point of discharge" to
the point of enlistment.
More Mian fifty per cent of the men
discharged Tuesday have expressed
their intention of re-enlisting. They
have three months in which to do this
without relinquishing any of tho ad
vantages of service. Most of the dis
charged men purpose to spend their
respite visiting the home folks and
their places will bo filled during the in
terim by the recruits who are constant
ly being received.
The departure of so many men has
made a large void sentimentally in tho
uood old Fifteenth. The regiment is
tho pride of tho infantry arm of the
military: the men who 'quit Tuesday
have- been identified with it for several
years, contributing in. part' to its. rec
ords for discipline, military efficiency
and marksmanship. The officers fool
the doparturo of I heir whole-souled,
well-behaved sharpshooters, keenly, and
the feeling is tenderly reciprocated by
the enlisted personnel.
On every hand a hearty "God-spcod"
was expressed. '

At II o'clock Tuesday night, Judge

and his three companions have been
sent up. Only one of tho remaining
three, however, was charged with tho
specific offense for which Crigler was
tried. This one is Joe Porter, who was
convicted and sentenced to two .years in
the state prison. Forrest Wilson, who
was arrested at the samo time, is under

the Stato Industrial school. Lewis
Grcnstein was sentenced to eighteen
months in the state prison.

fied in life trial of Crigler. Wilson and
Porter testified for him and Grcnstein
against him. Wilson and Porter said
that they planned and executed tho
burglary and that Crigler had nothing
whatever to do with it. Grcnstein, how
ever, testified that the burglary was
planned in Pawhidc. Nov., and that
Criirler was in on it. The testimonv of
Grcnstein came as a surprise: as the

Healer Charged With Inducing
Deaths of Children, Gives
ADVANCES QUEER IDEAS
Says Death and Disease Are
Hypnotism Curahle by
Charles H. Titus, the self-styled spir
itualist and divine healer, charged with
involuntary manslaughter iu denying
two of his children, afflicted with ma
lignant diphtheria, who subsequently
died, tho caro of a physician, gavo him
self up late Tuesday morning and will
be presented before Judge J. .'I. Whit
aker, occupying Judge Dichl's bench in
tho Polico court, for arraignment this
Titus's surrender to tho authorities
dispelled tho report in circulation upon
the Htreets late Monday night that ho
had disappeared. He was released from
quarautino Monday morning and or
dered not to ro-entcr his houso until
tho quarantine is lifted, which not onl'
gives him tho freedom of the streets,
but makes it necessary for him to ob
tain lodging elsewhere, consequently
Deputy Sheriff Isaac A. Emery, in whoso
hands the warrant of arrest was placed,
could not locate the long-haired "pro
fessor" Mondav afternoon or night.
The search for Titus was renowed
early Tuesday morning, but before he
was found ho walked into tho Sheriff's
office at tho joint building and sur
rendered himself, upon the advice of
his counsel. Alexander S. Fowler, sec
retary to Mayor John S. Bransford. Mr.
Fowler assured tho Sheriff's offico that
ho will produce Titus whenever ho i3
wanted and the "divine healer" was
released on his own recognizance.
Titus is about 50 years old, is a na
tive of Ohio, but acquired his peculiar
notions conccrnintr the treatemut of
diphtheria and other similar ailments
from a homeopathic collcgo in. Town.
Early in life he was associated with the
Christian Scientists, His art is mag
netic, ho contends, and he aids it with
ointments. There is no such thing as
death, is another of his contentions.
Death, he says, is a hvpnotic condition.
Disease also is hypnotism, relieved only
by hypnotism. Man is constantly chang
ing, ho holds, and there is no such
thing as age.
Admits Cause of Death.
Tho principal witnesses against Titus,
when his caso comes up for hearing,
will be Dr. R. W. Fisher of the Stato
Health Board. Dr. H. X. Mayo and
Dr. Luella P. Miles, who were denied
admission to the Titus homo to see tho
ill children: Dr. S. G. Paul of the city
Board of Health, Dr. Evans aud Ruth
erford B. Corbin, a reporter, who signed
tho complaints against tho accused man.
They aro based upon tho following sec
tion. No. 4163. of the statutes:
"Manslaughter is the unlawful kill
ing, of a human being without malice.
It is of two kinds, voluntary aud in
voluntary. Iuvoluntary is the commis
sion of an unlawful act not amounting
lo a felony, or in the commission of
an net which might produce death, in
an unlawful manner, or without due
caution and circumspection."
It may not be necessary lo exhume
the children 's bodies, as Titus, it is
said, admits that, they died of diphtheria.

John Doe, a Finn, well dressed and
30 years old, was lodged in tho county
jail Tuesday night, charged with tho
attempted larceny of a cow. Appar
onthy, John Doe should be a member of
the captains of finance and industry.
Tho cow belongs to Ilnrman Gliss

around the animal's horns and was lead
ing her out of tho barn lot and away
when he was detected. Ho fled to Salt
air and Glissmeyer notified the Sher
iff's office. Special Deputy Sheriff
Harper, who rides tho Saltair trains,
was detailed on tho case and took Doe
into custody at the inland sea.
Doo protended that he could not
sneak or understand English, but when
Turnkey Jack Corliss counted his mon
oy and underestimated the amount he '
had as a trap, John suddenly discovered j
that he can speak English fluently.
Corliss told him he had only $4.00. Doe
exploded in excellent and expressive
English that he had $G.S0.

One hundred aud forty miles of as
successful aud splendid a tour of the
Great Salt Lake as has been made in
the past fovr years is the record, briefly,
of tho trip mado Tuesday by thirty

An ideal Any, the finest boat the lake
has known in j-ears, a skipper that is
a pastmaster in his line, and the best
of entertainment on board contributed,
principally to the success of the day.
Aside from tho pleasure of a twelve
hour run on tho Irene tho excursion re
sulted in a movement for advertising
the various points of interest about the
lako and tho lake itself as it has prob
ably novcr been advertised before.
The Great Salt Lake association is
the name of the organization formed in
mid-lake Tuesday al'icrnoon by the busi
ness men on board the Irene. In twen
ty minutes after a chairman and other
temporary officers had been selected,
$500 was raised by the latter to be used
in publishing a book setting forth the
charms of Great Salt Lake in words and
Cutler Heads List.
The $500 was subscribed in $25 and
$10 lots 1)3" the business men who made
up the part3". Governor Cutler headed
the lisl and drew his check for $25 on
the spol, turning it over to the treas
urer. W. J. Hnlloran. president of the Com
mercial club, was made chairman of the
association. Judge E. F. Colborn was
made secretary and C. A. Quigley treas
urer. On motion, Judge Colborn was au
thorized to prepare the book on the
I lake. It is proposed to have this book
I circulated all over tho countiy and to
make it as attractive and artistic as
possible. The men present took up the
idea with enthusiasm and next Tuesda'
a meeting will be held at the Commer
cial club of those who formed tho as
sociation to consider further the mat
ter of publishing the book. The part3'
will bo guests of Mr. Ualloran.
