According to some of tho property own
ers affected, the council has courted a
threatened lawsuit by ordering the
(Uratßhtenlng of Summit avenue, which
has been hanging lire for nearly a year
by reason of numerous protests. The
protestants claim the burder of the ex
litiise falls upon a, few, when it should
bl more evenly distributed according to
Hie ban«fftl derived. The order to go
ahead wlth^the Improvement is embodied
in the report of the commissioners, which
was adopted over the protest. Some of
the parties affectcu .say they will enjoin
the city from awarding a contract.
After raising ills-, price, with no com
petitive bidding, t- do tho city street
sprinkling J. W. Kitzman now wants the
council to award him the contract at the
old price. He took this step after the
council had decided upon the feasibility
of buying its own wagons and contract
ing for teams and drivers. However. Mr.
Kitiman's second offer was turned down,
and Me now has an opportunity to enter
into competition with others if he bids

For months residents of the northwest
section have clamored for the removal of
the Salt Lake railroad bridgu which spans
North Lincoln avenue, on the ground

being high enott£h above the street grade.
All notices to that effect lioin this city
hav'j been ignored by the railroad com
pany until today, when Attorney Sedg
wlck appeared before the council and
asked for a conference between the city
engineer, the railroad company's engi
neer und the clti»ens' committee, which
Indicates an early solution 01 a perplex

struction fund. This amount is to be

in payment for the second engine Just In

of money was for the purpose of settling
this account.

Mr. Stevenson spoke earlier in the even-

the presidential contest of 1908 with splen

bright, thu omers all auspicious. With
the living issues—antagonism to trusts,

our councils."

LONG BEACH. Jan. B.—When Conduc
tor Conklln turned the trolley on his car
and, with Motorman Wolkop, was ready
to start back from Zaferla Junction on
the last trip of the Redondo avenue car
about midnight last night, he was sur
prised to flee sitting: in the car a. man
whose broadbrlmmed hat was pulled down
over his eyes and the lower half of whose
face was covered with a black cloth.
Motorman Wo:kop observed the strang
er at about the same time. Without
throwing oft the power he pulled his re
volver from his pocket ami held It ready
for instant un M thu conductor ap
proached the passenger t j demand his
fare. likewise drew his revolver.
The unknown masked man did not shift
his position save to draw his right huml
from his overcoat pocket and offer the
conductor a dime. As he did so he caught
sight of the gleaming revolver and eat
up with a start.
Ciuiklin drew a bead on the man, tvho
uppenre ! to be thoroughly frightened.
"Wy, wot's the excitement?" the pas
senger demanded hoarsely.
"Don't try any funny business." ordered
the heroic conductor. "And rip oft* that
mask in a hurry. Thought you'd hold
up the car, did .ou?"
The passenger, who had hitherto ap
peared rather gloomy, brightened up.
Then he laugued, not a loud, uproar
ious laugh, but neverthe'.ess a mirthful
"Ah, g'wan. 1/ye think I'm a crook?"
he asked. "Naw, naw. Just had my ton
sils cut out yesterday and I'm weßrtn'
dit ting on me face to keep out the OOid.
Back up, bacK up!"
Ho was Charles Johnson, an employe in
a local laundry. He left the car at Ollvt
street and proceeded on his homeward
way, as any other quiet citizen would.
"Well, don't wear such bad looking
bandages on your faca next time." Wol
kop told him as he left the oar. "I came
mighty near taking a. enot at you when
you straightened up in your seat. r
thought you were going for the 'con' with
a gun of your own."
