lirel tcrdnv malo stntomeiiUs relative to the

Hi B. K. Grant, following the resignation
ID of IIuKh Lt. Glenn from tho police depurt-
H? mcnt. Each commissioner denies knowl-
WK edge of any report, as printed In tho
Bit Herald-Republican, lliat. the chief might
bo asked lo resign because of hlfl lnter-
HB Mayor Park said:
Hf Mr. Glenn served Chief Grant woll
MM and tho chief liked him. The chief
was sorry to sec Glenn so. as ho ro-
yarded him as a good ofllcer.
i I have heard of no movement to ro-
K' inovo Chief Grant, nor of nny rumor
that ho will resign. I do not un-
B durstand why so much commotion
xhoulu be stirred up over the rnflg-
mm nation of a member of- the police- de-
part mcnt when no charges have been
preferred against him.
HCv Hebcr M. Wells, commissioner of parks
HK' and public property, said:
Tlio whole thing was a surprise to
HH me. I knew nothing about the mat-
Wm lev until Mayor Park, presented Mr.
mWi Glenn's resignation. I simply acted
upon it as 1 would on any recom-
BH mendatiou from the head of another
Hf department. j
H Written Statement.
IT. Shearman, water commissioner,
9 issued a written statement as .follows:
Tho whole matter Is a tempest In
jH a teapot. An employee of tho city
JH resigned and the action called, for no
Mm more attention than tho scores of
Ml similar cases which have occurred.
IWi As far as Mr. Grant's criticism of
''Mmt the commission is concerned, 1 con-
iB sider it entirely uncalled for and iin-
jB proper. Even if Mr. Glenn had been
jBi removed instead of resigning. Mr.
'Bl Grant certainly should not have had
mm- tbc temerity to crltlclBc his cmploy-
:B f'rs because they differed with him in
jBl regard to the usefulness of one of
Hf tlicl i- employees. I think it Is cvl-
!mms dence of a deplorable lack of tact
B ami judgment, which arc very neccs-
'B rv In tn nuallllcations of a chief
:B of police, for Mr. Grant to imply that
"JmS. anv member of the commission Is ac-
tB luatcd by 'other than tho very best
desire to serve the best Interests of
'B Richard P. Morris, commissioner of
, BB streets and public Improvements, said:
ff I believe Chief Grant's statement
B contained a reflection on the city
EH .-ommlsslon and was uncalled for. I
H have not heard of any movement to
KM remove the chief, however.
SB Henry V. Lawrence, commissioner of
HBl Una nee, said:
'H I havo not paid much attention to
J the ma Iter. T suppose Mr. Glenn
Bf arrlcd out the instructions of hla
BB superiors. I do not condemn Glenn.
IBB :,s 1 tnmIc nc wad no more to blame
MWl than perhaps somo others. I have
BB heard of no move to remove tho

H Chief Grant said:

Hul yesterday the substance of a report In

BBC vnrsation between himself and the chief
BBHj of police In regard to the Brunswick
BBS rooming house.
BBJE In the Smoot organ Smith was quoted
fBJIf as raying the chief of police told him
BBj iVm.1 unless the county authorities co-
BBI operated with the police he, the chief,
BBI would call upon the governor to Inter-

BHJ The published report of my iuler-
BH view with the chief of police, wherc-
BV In I am quoted as saying the chief
BBji threatened to call upon the govenor
BBW to enforce harmony between, city and
BBS county authorities. Is absurd. Also
BBj the report that I told the chief that
BBS I was not running around getting evl-
BK douce for him. and did not Intend to
BBV help him in the matter, was Incor-
BBH root. I told tho chief I was willing to
BBu no,, lllln al,v wav 1 could, so long

BB wishes of my superiors.
BB Neither did the chief of police say
BB he would force tlio county attorney

Subject Is Discussed in De
tail by Clifford G. Roe
of Chicago.
Urges Parents to Be Honest
With Children; Makes
Appeal to Men.
Faloo modesty on tho part of parents,
failure of citizens to stand behind offi
cers of the law, public dance halls, ob
Jcctlonablo literature, reckless songs,
economic wrongs and tho linger of scorn
are chiefly responsible for "white slav
ery" In tho world, according to Clifford
G. Roo of Chicago, who last night, In
Assembly hall, delivered an address on
this subject under tho auspices of tho
Social Service society of Utah.
Somo of tho striking observations of
Mr. Roo follow:
The twentieth century seems des
tined to be one of social reform. This
question Is no longer confined to tho
municipality It has become a na
tional and an International Issue.
Throughout all time there have
beon two provalent Ideas concerning
tho social evil, and both aro errone
ous. Commercialized Immorality and
Vice has beon deemed a necessary
evil, and tho salo of women as chat
tels has been regarded as a natural
Uilng. In the past two years a now
light has appeared and tho world Is
coming to a rcllzatlon of lis former
Errors Pointed Out.
Our forofathers deemed telegraphy,
wireless transmission of words, tho
, telephone, tho automobllo and the lo-
comotivo to havo been impossibilities.
Modern development has demonstrat
ed them to have been wrong. And
these arc tho same forefathers who
though that commercialized vice was
a necessity on the earth. Their er
ror in this respect also is being
brought to the light of day.
No man in this country knows how
much "white slavery" exists. Not
all unfortunate women aro "white
slaves," nor aro they all procured.
It Isn't so much, a question of re
demption as It Is one of prevention.
I doubt If wo shall bo a'blc to redeem
many fallen women they don't want
to bo saved, T am sorry to say.
But wc can drive out tho "cadet."
the procurer and the pandercr, sav
ing tho girls of the rising genera
tion from tho Iniquitous lures hold
out by these destroyers and which arc
largely responsible for departure of
girls from their homos and tho paths
of virtue.
Appeals to Real Men.
Affected innocence is false modesty.
Parents should tako their children
Into their confidence and tell them
the things they ought to know.
When your children ask questions,
answer them honestly.
I appeal to tho real sportsman
the man with red blood In his body.
7-Ie would not kill a helpless sparrow,
much loss destroy the virtue of a
girl coming Into womanhood any
other man Is not worth considera
tion. And let all young men remem
ber that It is their duty to take to
Intended wives as clean bodies as
thev expect to have brought to them.
rbellevo that tho making of a bad
girl worse Is as bad as making a
good girl bad.
You can sow wild oat.s; you can
reap wild oats; but you can't soli
wild oats. The up-to-date employer
no longer wants tho man with bleary
eye nnd nervous hand from ovll ex
cesses he demands the clear eye.
the sharp Intellect and tho capable
brain of the clean citizen.
One Standard Urged.
The time has come when men are
beginning to say, "Wo shall havo but
one standard of morality, to apply to
men and women alike it shall be tho
same for the man as for the wom
an" and in this wc have made an
Important step toward eradication of
the 'white slave" evil. The time Is
here when, wc are not shouting so
loudly for more law as that we are
contending for enforcement of the
laws we already have.
The ordinary prosecutor, tho aver
age chief of police and tho common
policeman are usually ready and will
ing to do their honest duty. The
trouble Is that the citizen does not
stand behind the officer with his
moral support nnd his franchise, and
falls to back up tho officer In tho
pursuit of his duty.
Dr. James E. Tsilmage presided at the
meeting and Tracy Y. Cannon, assistant
organist at the tabcrnnclc, played sev
eral selections on the pipe organ prior to
the address of Mr. Roc.

Pauper Clerk Is Given Added Duty of
. Investigating All Applications
on File,
Tn order that a reliable check can
bo made on all applications for mone
tary nid under tho widow pousion
fund, tho county commissioners decided
yesterday to assign to Carl Poulton,
county pauper' clerk, the added duty of
investigating every application received
by the juvenile court. His salary was
increased, proportionately with his addi
tional work.
It will bo tho pauper clerk's duty to
see that there is no duplication of ap
propriations from tho Avidow pcusion
fund and tho county poor fund. Owing
to his position as pauper cleric Mr.
Poulton was select od as best fitted to
handle this work. He will make per
sonal investigation of all applicants for
help from the pension fund and will re
port lo the juvenile court judge on tho
jnstico of such applications.
The $10,000 appropriated under the
widow pension law for 1913 was ex
hausted carlv in the year, and there
was somo question as to whether it
reached the most worthy eases. Some
applications wcro received from wid
ows who, on investigation, wore found
to be amply provided without help
from tho court.
The second $10,000 for distribution in
191-1 has been appropriated by the
county commissioners and is now sub
ject to applications through the juve
nile court.

Will Attempt to Prevent Govornmeut
From Withdrawing Lands Near
In conformity with its recent deci
sion to contest the right of tho federal
government to withdraw land embraced
within school land grants, given tho
state under the enabling act, the state
land board has filed with the attorney
general a protest against such a with
drawal in the case of forty acres near
Storrs, Utah.
"Wo expect to lose our caso as
usual, but wo aro going to do our best
to show that tho practice of the federal
"ovornmout in playing 'injun' with us
by giving us land and then taking it
away is not right or lawful," said W.
J. Lynch, secretary of tho board, yes
tordiiy. The forty acres in question is a part
of a section of school land belonging lo
tho stato under the enabling a'ct. Re
cently a contest arose in tho land of
fico over tho question of priority of
two apnlications for tho purchase of
this land. George A. Storrs and Da
vid P.'Lcwis wcro tho contesting appli
cants. While tho laud board was consider
ing thoso applications, George Larson
of Price stepped in and filed with the
federal land office a declaration that
the forty acres contained coal deposits
and other minerals. In accordance with
custom followed under the old mineral
law, the government thereupon with
drew this land from Hie state grant and"
held it as mineral land.
The state land board will contend
that the land belongs lo the state and
that tho government has absolutoky no
right lo step in and take it under any
pretext whatever. It .will bo contended
that tho grant to the stato was with
out any restricting provisions whatover.

Professor R R. Lyman of the Univer
sity of Utah Is still urging the commit
tee in charge of the junior prom, which
will bo given at the Hotel Utah net
Friday night, to abolish carriages and
flower from the big affair. The reason
for Professor Lyman's attitude is that
