Little Matter of Printing De
; liiiquout Tax List Will
j Not Down.
i Commissioners Will Probably
Be Called to Time at
! Early Date.
'I'liorc is every indication that I lie
time is not, far distant when the county
commissioners arc to he brought to
' i task for their reckless disregard of the
B :iv. in handing over 10 the Smoot
"Mouth" approximately $5700. for the
j print in of the county delinquent mx
Jist without observing the little formnl-
- Sly of soliciting bids. A civil, suit to
compel the commissioners to reimburse
the county for the excessive amount;
1 paid the Smool organ is insistently
whispered. In fact, the whisper Ihrent
1 ens to burst into an avalanche.
A loiter of Count v Treasurer .lohn
, A. Ciosibcck threatens to bring (he
I ironb1- to a head. The bill for the
' .1 print'.. .g of the delinquent tax list nut-
1 U urn II v was placed against. Treasurer
(; i.'ioesbock's (lei)artment. There are no
records exlant on the subject, but it
1 it. authoritatively understood that
' (trocsbeck almost fainted when he saw
Hie bill. ?-r00 in excess of what it has
been for the preceding three years.
"When he recovered, he sat down and
wrote County Auditor Frank Hcgin
I bothain a nice little letter, in which he
j ! let. out a gentle, but firm and digm-
, fled, protest, against having the bill
credited against his department and
wanting to know whv it couldn't, be
i-harui'd elsewhere. Having plenty of
troubles of his own with the arbitrary
band that ruins the political destiny
of Salt Lake county. "Mr. Neginbothntu
declined to shoulder the responsibilities

Is Writes to Commissioners.
, Mr. Grocsbeck then sat himself down
and, although the commissioners are
onlv rwo floors above him and the floors
i :ro oonnccied by a perfectly safe ele
vator, addressed a second letter to the
commissioners in which he set out his
1 "pigeon holed" let'ter to Mr. Heirin-
' botham and emitted another, long and
; somewhat loud kick against having the
' bill taxed against his office, especially
! in view of the fact that he had nothing
lo do with contracting it.
i This was several days ago. Nothing
was hoard of the letter until Monday
', afternoon. Then the aristocratic conn
i tv patriots read the letter over ar, the
I regular sessiou two or three times, but
i did not allow it to go on the records.
, ; Oh. no! They were too wise for that.
A careful search of the minutes showed
no trace of the letter, which leads to
the conclusion that it i; safely riding

Mr, Wood and Mr. Martin engaged
in a spiriled tilt over the petition of
.1. S. Cleveland and. suvernl othor
teamsters that provision for a three
nich tire be made in the new widc-tire
ordinance, and that the teamsters be
given more time in which to furnish
their wagons with new tires. Mr. Wood
mox'ed that six months' . time be
granted, expressing 'it as his opinion
that tho street department is in too
much of a hurry about; the matter. Mr.
Martin claimed to seo a covert attack
upon the street department in this, and
annonnceod his undving fealty to
Supervisor lialcigh. Mr. Wood as
serted that if 100 or 150 teamsters have
grievances against tho street depart
ment there must bo something rotten
in that department. Tho petition went
to the streets and municipal laws committee.-
To protect the city from damage
suits resulting from street accidents,

"According to one of tho couucilmen
tonight, we have such a great and good
man at Iho head of tho street dnparl
nicnt that, I will not move to reconsid
er the matter of giving him a special
officer to enforce the wide-tire ordi
nance and prosecute teamsters spilling
sand and gravel upon tho street," de
clared Mr. Wood, wheu this matter
came up.
The city attorney's ordinance, in
tended to cnlch tho ten loan companies
not required to pay the city a liccuso

quire a. pledge of personal property

add $1000 annually to tho city's reve

inspectors, with their places of employ
ment, was referred, at Mr. Fernstrom's
suggestion, to tho finance committee.

County Fathers Want Pay From
Phone People tor Exten
sion of Lines.
The county commissioners want the
telephone conipnnics to pay the cdunty
something for the privilege of extend
ing their lines all over tho county,!
and may appeal to the legislature to
give them power to tax the telephone !
companies operating in the county for
this privilego.
The city receives something from
the telephone companies for this
privilege, and tho commissioners feel
that tho countv is entitled to somo re
muneration. 'I'hc city now receives
from ench telephone company operating-
here 1 per cent of the gross earn
ings annually, and tho county would
like In get the same. Tn addition, the
city gois lifty froo telephones from
each telephone company, and this par
ticularly appeals to jho county com
missioners, since their littlo graft of
having the county pay for the tele
phones installed in their residences,
nnd used mainly for private and do
mestic use, was cut off. The commis
sioners argue that the ielephono com
panies' lines extend along the high
ways of tho county for tho most part,
and that tho county is entitled to
something for this space.
Until 100S tho city recoived a fixed
licenso on each phono in uso from the
telephone companies, but a' few
months ago the ordinauco was amended
to. pvo the tclophono companies the
option of paying this license tax or
giving the city 1 per cent of their gross
earnings annually in lieu of the license.
The telephone companies ehoso tho lat
ter option. From tho Bell company
the city will, receive about $2500 an
nually, it is estimated, and from the
Independent about $1GOO or $1S00.
Tho item of froo phones saves the city
quite an expense, too.
J. J. Fox Held Up hy Four lien,

,T. ,T. Fox, a .iowelry drummer, travel

and robbed of bix watches Monday
night, at G o'clock in the hallway of a

few minutes after tho robbery Police
man Woods arrested G. Stains, one of
tho four men who did the deed. At po

watches were found in Stains 'a pock
ots. Fox had made arrangements to meet
iho Groelcs in a house in tho renr of 551
WTcst Second South street to sell them
somo watches as ho supposed. Ifo was
there as agreed and four men met him.
One of the men said ho wanted to buy
a rovolver, but Fox informed him he
did not havo one to sell and did not
oven carry ouo. After bartering for a
while tho Greeks refused to mako a
purchase. As Fox stepped out into tho
hallway of tho houso tho four men,
lie says, stopped out behind him and
ouo drew a revolver and another a long
knife and made Fox throw up his hands.
Six watches were taken from him.
Fox notified Policeman Wood a few
minutes after the robbery and tho offi
cer visited the placo immediately, but

Peter Neilson, Alias Peter Mal
lcrup, Passes Away From
Heart Trouble.
Peter Neilson, alias Pot or Mallcmp,
75 years old, was found dead in the
kitchen of his home, on Eleventh East
street, south of Twelfth South street,
Monday afternoon, by Charles Davis, a
guard at tho Utah slate prison. From
all appearances tho man had been dead
several days. Deputy Sheriffs Smith
aud Emory wero sent to the home, but
could learn nothing that would lead to
suspicion of foul play. Tho old mail
was found dead, seated in a chair with
a newspaper in his lap aud his head
j resting on tho edge of tho table. Heart
trouble is supposed to have caused his
! death.
Davis's attention was called to the
face that tho old man had not been
fieen sineo last Tuesday, when he was
known to go lo a grocery store close
l3r to purchase oil. and went to iho
house to find out, if he could, what had
become of tho occupant. JTo found the
key in the lock on the outside of the
door, and when entering saw the man
sealed iu a. chair. Going furl her into

and the bod was ordered removed lo

Pishop John M. AVhitaker of Sugar
House ward knew the old man very
well, as the Mormon church had been
aiding in supplying him with the neces
sities of life. Mr. Whilakor said
Monday night that the old man's right
name was Neilson. but of iate he has
called himself Mallerup, as there wero
so many persons named Neilson living
in Salt Lake, lie had come from the
I southern part, of the state about, a year
I and a half ago, ami had lived alone.

Utah Light. & Railway Company
Makes Request of Com
County May Not Ask for Any
Remuneration for the
The extension of the street railway
service to Bingham .lunction and
Sandy is tentatively promised in the
request of tho Utah Light & Railway
company of the county commissioners
of an enrly consideration of its appli
cation for further extension of its
franchise in the county outside of Salt
Lake City.
i Tho railway company has long had
under consideration the extension of'
; its Murray lino to Sandy aud possibly
another line to Bingham Junction, but
there are several good reasons why this
has not been done. Murray wants a
five-cent fare to Salt Lako City. This
the street railway company has abso
lutely refused anil the county commis
sioners havo been solicited by some
of the iralc citizens of Murray to uso
tho matter of granting a franchise to
Sandy as a club over the railway com
pany' to forco tho reduction from I en
j cents lo five eon Is in tho faro from
Murray to Salt Lake City. The eom-
! inissioncrs are a littlo dubious about
j wrestling with tho proposition, "but it
is understood that, whilo the commis
sioners nro divided on tho matter, tho
Sandy franchise will not bo granted
unless the street railway company
agrees to reduce tho faro between Mur
ray .and Salt Lako lo five cents within
at least ten years. Tho cilizous. of
Murray, of course, want a shorter time
and have named fivo years, aud it is
a question of whether sufficient pres
sure can bo brought upon tho commis
sioners to 'gel them to stand firm and
refuse to grant tho Sandy franchiso
unless tho company agrees to so reduce
the faro within five years.
Whether the county will ask any
thing in return for granting tho ex
tension of tho franchiso to Sandy is
uncertain now, but tho commissioners
nppear to think that Iho county ought
lo be satisfied with the extension of
the street railway lines over (he county
without asking the"" company to pay
anything for this privilege. Interur
ban lines are a great, benefit n the
county, and there will bo littlo or no
dispute over the railway company's
paving tho county anything for the
extension of its franchise throughout
the county if tho lines are built.
The extension to Sandy probably will
be mado this year, while it is londly
hoped that the Iiiugham .lunction line
will be begun. Once started, it is
believed, the railway company will
build lines to other nearby towns and
thus connect them with Salt. Lako City
within a few minutes time. Tho ex
tensions would in all probability have
been built and running ero now if tho
smelters had not closed down.

Policeman Lyon was on duty in citi
zen's clothes and whilo walking up
Stato street Murphy approached him
and asked for money. Tho policeman
placed the man under arrest and start
ed to walk him to the city jail.
When near tho Independent Tele

was released irom tho city(.iail Thurs
day on a pardon after serving part, of
a thirty days' sentence for vagrancy,
ran up behind tho officer and struck
him back of tho left ear. When the
policeman turned around Lano hit him
again in the mouth.
Murphy broke away and siarled to
run and Lyon drew his revolver ami
fired five shots in the air to frighten
the escaping prisoner. Lano also ran.
Tho shooting attracted Policeman Carey
and McMardcn. who followed the men.
Lyon and McMardcn captured Murphy
in an alley back of the Orphcuni sa
loon on Slate street, and when he put
up a light tho butt of a revolver was
used on his head, making a wound
which Dr. F. B. Sleelc sewed up with
soveral stitches. Lano was captured in
another alley by Policeman Carey,
who obliged the man to come out from
under a wagon, where ho had hid, at
I ho point of a revolver.
Lane is charged with aiding a prison

Lano stated to Lieutenant Shannon
that he'diff not know Lyon was an offi

HUGO I ill Ml
Has Trouble With Wife, and
Charged With Disturbing
the Peace.
Hugo W. Bohne is deeply immersed
in troubles, others than thoso of a
marilal nature, but his lntest. predica
ment arises out of these troubles, in
connection with his inability to get
nlong with his wife, Nanny Olga
Bohne. Bohne is lodged behind the
bars of the county jail, charged with
disturbing the peace.
Alleging that Bolmo had driven her
out of tho-houso with threats upon her
life, and thrown her clothes out. into
the yard. Mrs. Bohne brought suit for
divorce from him in tho Third Dislricl.
court Fridny. Twenty-four hours
nfterward, Saturday, upon complaint
sworn to bv Clarence M. Cannon and
Archibald Frceburn, neighbors of the
warring Bohnes, and issued by tho
county attornev. Bohne was arresled
by Deputy Sheriff Axel II. Steele and
incarcerated in the county jail on the
charge of disturbing the pcaco of his
neighbors, nnd particularly that of Can
non and Frceburn.
Found tacked upon Bohno's domi
cile, in a conspicuous place, was a
pencil-written note to the effect that if
''strangers" attempted to replace his
wife's wearing apparel and othor ef
foots in the houso from iho yard, where
he had thrown them, he would burn
tho articles. Tho note was in German,
Bohno's tongue, and had to be trans
lated into English before tho county
attorney's or tho sheriff's ollicc could
tell anything about it. At tho time of
Bohno s arrost, it is alleged, Lc had
built a fire in his yard in anticipation
of an ofi'ort on tho part of his wife or
neighbors to rcplaco Mrs. Bohne 's
clothing in the house, upon which, it
is supposed, judging from tho note ho
left, he intended to heap his wife's
things and thus destroy them.
George Stokes and Olic Pierce
Have Fierce and Bloody
Dispute over a card game Monday
afternoon resulted in George Stokes,
colored, 22 .years old, being struck in
the side of tho head by a large-sized
green liquor bottle in tho hands of an
other negro named Olic Pierce, who
was arrested shortly after the trouble
by Detectives Burt and Chase.
Stokes went to tho emergoncv
hospital in I he city jail, and it took
Dr. F. B. Steele two hours to sew and
dress the terrible wound made. The
bottle, when it struck against Stokes's
head, broke, and the sharp edges of
the glass cut a gash four inches long,
starling close to tho right, eye and
leading down on to tiro check. Sev
eral other smaller cuts were made on
tho neck.
Stokes says he was watching a card
gamo iu tho American houso on Com
mercial street, when he saw one of the
players cheating. Ho spoko to tho man,
and nsked him his renson for not plav
ing fair. Pierce then lold Stokes to
mind his own business, and from that
the row started. ,
Tho cut was a bad ono to sew up,
and no little skill had to be used on the
part of the physician to sew the pieces
of llesh together so as not lo leave a
prominent scar.

of evil so long that 'ou and your kind

tomary questions had been asked of
tho prisoner, "thnt you be confined,

Considerably Humbled.
Doming appeared considerably
humbled by Judgo Lewis's classifica
tion of his attempt at conducting his
own defense as a bungle. Doming had
absolutely no statement to mako for
himself. He spoke not a word while
in tho courtroom.
Doming began his sentence for high
way robbery February 28, 190S. With
no merit marks to his credit, this sen
tence would expire February 28, 1018.

These men, whoso accumulated
fortunes aro proof of their good
judgment realize that an indiv-.
ldual privately appointed as
trustee is not required to report

inspected. Even his bo.nd, if
called into question, may not
prove salisf actor'.
