Jht two wonion Mrs OBrien mud
May Davis who were to have left
Halt Uiko to join the OBrlciw tn
Mexico when headed off by the sheriff
and Interviewed last night told how the
gang had flushed 1090 blllH and how
they had scattered when the victims
came back to town
Tlus are a few of the Indicator Hint
point to the onllllulol of n crime
Tlio grave scandal continue to lie the
allnljsorblnff loplo and It Is not Infre
quently heard on tho streets that
Sheets mado a cicnt mistake In RO
ln oat Into the hail nnh Interviewing
the lan Holl ulowi and returning with
tho money
When toll by McWiilrtcr that ho had
been arrested by Bell Shetits made nn
other grave mistake In not arresting
hell on the charge of Impersonating un
officer There are a number of other
llsliy Incidents connected with the
Sheets y McWhirter reported at
the police station when hi reality the
station through the back entrance and
station by the hack entrance and I
Sheets stood for the bogus olllcor I
Sheets and tho Tribune are Inclined
to doubt the story of time Hcotchmcn
yet the victim had tho receipt for HJOO
dollaiH given him by one of the gang
who Impersonated an olllcer Thl they
Rhovred to the police to nay nothing of
the six 1000 bills which wero changed
In taut city by member of the gang
Why did SheetH muko McWhlrUf
pick up the 7BO laying on the desk an
he explained HO that tho reixuteitf
could not see It If the chief of police
thought no crime had been committed
and here was nothing to conceal
In the face of the story loll why did
not th chief of police neml n man out to
shadow Hell whtn he went oft to eel
the money
Sheets nays he did not know the man
Hell jet him ho calls him Bell Who Introduced
JlcWhlrtcr says he didnt
heetl was perfectly wllllA to re
cover part of the money for the vic
tim SInco when linn the police de
partment gone into the collection
agency business to thai neglect of run
nine clown crime
The Tribune nyn that n 10000 rob
bery Ims no news value what consti
tutes news value
It Sheets told McWhlrter that he had
better get out of town hecuusu pub
licity would spoil any nuuccsa In tho
subsequent arrest of the gang WHY
These are just a few < the questions
that are being naked on the streets to
dny not only by the rank and nic but
by prominent citizens
One bank cashier this morning wild

American party and oled for the tick

can Icnrn plenso excuse me
An attorney also voiced tho sale sen
timents In almost exactly the santo
words 1 looks pretty rotten to me
ho Kild Where cUt 1 Ill go who
has been wronged It not to the chief of

That twounsophlstlcated Scotch tour
ists could come to Salt Lake be fleeced
out o 110000 nnd then deliver one of
the song to the police o rather to bo
more correct was delivered Into the
hands of the chief of the police by the
bogus officer of tho gang of harpies
J a staggering fact
I Is known that Mayor Thompson
Is doing sOle deep thinking about tho
pcandul and particularly the astonish
Ing part that George Sheets played
Ho knows that he was responsible for
the appointment o this same man
Sheets who whenever lie hns been oft
the force for the good of tho service
spent the most of Ills time In trying to
fret back and with 1 determination
that was significant Accordingly If
Sheets permits a bogus officer to come
Into the quiet of his department aunt
tell him nnd
of 1 crime If he gets
handles sOle of the stolen money
that to than
money thll amounts mure
10000 makes a settlement as be
tween thloves and victims with the
lctlm < getting only 1 tenth of that
they were robbed of when after

wonder that the mayor Is worried and

I Is up to Mayor Thompson to Inves
