BURGLAR SCORNS
DARK LANTERN
Works in Full Glare of Elec
tric Lights at Two City
Residences
When Mr and Mrs David Spit of
103 East Second South street turned t
stet
the home last night at 10 ocloc after
spending the evenig visiting friends
they were first mystified to find the house
brilliantly lighted and then thrown Into
consternation to discover that they bad
been the victims of a burglar who had
secured a lot of silverware and other art
des of value and turned every room
top3ytun
Footprints In the snowovered ground
Indicted that but one man bad been con
nected with the job He evidently had
worked with a cool nerve and had ran
sacked ever room emptying the contents
of bureau drawers on the floors
I Entering through the kitchen door after
forcing out the key and using a skeleton
I key the marauder turned on every light
In the house leaving them burning and
the rear door wide open when he left i
ImeaUstion showed that the burglar I
Included In his haul over one hundred I
pieces Qf sliver tableware a pair of opera
glasseS a watch fob with a small dia
mond setting and other articles of jew
elry and a pocketbook containing 10
That the burglar Is not possessed ot a
sweet tooth proved fortunate for Mrs
prove
Spit who had about 20 laid away In 0
candy box which the thief passed by He
also evidently had no liking for clothing
but In his search for money and jewelry
went Into every nook and corner
Patrolman Tom GIlsple and J M
Lyon were at the house within ten min
utes after the police were notified by
Mrs Spitz In their investigation they
discovered a clue that I Is believed will
lead to the Identity of the burgar In a
short time
The housebreaking at the residence of
Mrs E A Hoagln 318 South St West
street discovered after midnight Satur
day and reported to the police yeterday
showed the earmarks of having been
committed by the sane man who entered
the Spit home last nigh LIke Mr and
Mrs Spitz ra Hoaglin returned to
her home to find it lighted and every
room In confusion Although the house
had been ransacked nothing was missing
the burglar having failed to find any
money and Ignoring the monogram jew
cir and silverware The plic WEre un
able to discover any clue to the Hoagln
burglar
A close watch will be kept for the mod
era and fastidious burglar who scorns the
tradition or the dark lantern and prefer
traditon
to work under th glare of the electrIc
light
CHRISTIAN LIFE
AND THE CHURCH
Jephi L Morris Tells of the
Duties of the Ordinary
Citizen
In prefacing his remarks at the Tab
ernacle service yesterday afternoon Nephl
L Morris said many speakers confined
themselves to addresses Intended mostly
for the strangers and he proposed to
speak on maters which should touch the
lives of the members of the church as
citizens of the city state and union Mr
Morris read an editorial from the Inter
mountain Catholic regarding a recent do
tate note at tee L u l A In wmcn
I was decided that a man could lead a
Christian life without affiliating himself
With any church organization and the
speaker commended the strength of the
and taken by the Catholic paper 1n
that I there were any revealEd relIgion
I must como through the authority ot a
church
Reading an extract from a local morning
Ing paper regarding the prevalence of
vice and Immoral In Sal Lake Mr
Morris said the parents of the commu
nity had become careless In looking after
their children and many were tryIng to
shirk responsibility The growth of Sal
I Lake wa contrasted with the growth In
crime of all descriptions and Mr Morris
eferre to the west Ride stockad as an
institution which had once been effec
tively dosed and was about to be reop
ened without hindrance from the city
authorities and probably without hind
rance from the county officers
In his plea for loyalty In the home
community nation and church Mr Mor
ris delivered a long speech on Independent
politics and the glory of defeat In a
just cause

SOLEMN MASSES
AT GA TERAL
Bishop Laurence Scanlan Re
turns From Nevada and
Takes Par
A SERMON ON PATIENCE
FATHER KIELY REMINDS HEAR
ERS OF COUNSELS OF PAUL
Sunday saw the solemn celebration ot
several masses and the rendition ot sacred
cred music at 8t Mars Cathedral I
also marked the return of the Rt Rev
Bishop Scalan from Nevada and he
plunged Into the services of the day Im
mediatey upon his arrival In Salt Lake
Bishop Icanan said mass at 8 oclock
and this service wa followed by an
other mass said by Father Kiely at 9
The St Cecela chorus and junior choir
participated I
Solemn high mass was celebrated at U
ocock by the Rev Michael Curran at
the sermon was preached by the Very
Rev R J Meany a Dominican of Wash
ington D C Rosewegs mass in F
was sung and the feature of this was the
solo of Miss Mae ONel
The Rev D Kiely preached the sermon
at vesper and the benedlton was pro
nounced by Bishop Scnlan Father Kie
lys sermon was on Patience and lie
took for his text the passage found In
Romans I For I reckon that the suf
ferings of tlE time are not worthy to
be compared with the glory to come
St Paul counsels patience sid Fa
ther Kiely This means to endure pain
sorrow or the Inconveniences of life with
out murmurIng You visit a sick friend
and your only consolation when you wish
to sooth his pain Is patience Be pa
tient you say tmd you will soon be well
and this pain will cease Death enters
the household and brings sorrow We
sympathize with the bereaved family
That means we try to console them by
telling the mourners that their departed
heaven one was so good and that the soul Is In
Only One Remedy
All through life In the thorny path
way we are continualy stumbling over
some Inconvenient obstacles that ruffle
our temper In discussing those Inconven
Iences be they great or small there Is
only one remedy and that Is patience
Pain and sorrow are unavoidable They
are Inseparable from mans existVnce
Under the circumstances then WI should
apply the only antidote and that Is to
cultivate patience On every side Is man
beset with trials and crosses which cause
pain and sorrow and discontent and the
0 ou
oumu remeay IS pacmnce In vIewing ure
paufnce
from a commonsene point wo learn the
truth of the poets words How poor are
they that have no patience
St Paul understood human nature
thoroughly Inspired by the spirit of
truth he sid For I reckon that the
sufferings of this time are not worthy to
be compared with the glory to come He
takes I for granted that sufferings of
some kind which cause pain and sorrow
represent one side of life In this all will
wi
agree with him Then he places those
sufferings In one side of the scale and
on the other side he places something
that will overbalance the skie which Is
weighed dow by pain and sorrow To
get a proper balance everything In life
lfe
must be estimated at Its true value The
hardships of the miner who braves the
winter storm and lives like a recluse In
the snowcad hills are estimated by him
and his friends according to the rIchness
of the vein they discover In the bowels of
the earth Following the rule St Paul
places In one side of the scale the suf
ferings of thIs life and tells that tl1ey
are not of equal weight to the glory that
glor
shall be revealed when one crosses the
portals of death In other words the
Is no proportion between the suffering
one may have to endure in this life and I I
the glory awaiting the just soul

WANTS CHILDREN
T GIVE SERVICE
Governor Has Idea in Regard
to Silver Set t for Battle
ship Utah
That the presentation of a silver set
purchased by small contributions from the
lOO school children In the state will
be the most representative and patriotic
feature In an the equIment of the new
battleship Utah now being built by the
government Is the opinion of Governor
William Spry and this Idea likely will
be carrIed out just before the new ad
Into dition commission to the United Stats navy Is put
Just when the battleship Utah will b
ready to tale its place with the other war
ships of Uncle Sams navy has not beep
reported to Governor Spry but It like
ly will b during the tall of 1910 Some
fair daughter of Utah will be sponsor for
the ship and probably will follow the old
custom of breaking a bottle of cham
pagne over the bow of the new ship
Some new departure from thIs custom
may be established at the suggestion of
Governor Spry and others to do away
with the champagnebreaking feature
A complete silver service will be the
present of Utah and Governor Sprs
Idea I to have the school children of tile
stat contribute this to the new floating

child In the state contribute 10 cntp
which would make fund
a or 1000 for
the purchase of the lavish sliver set for
the battleship
Details Not Known
Xo arrangements for the christening 01
the battleship have yet ben made nor
will they b made until just bore the
ship Is ready to be floated After this
ceremony of curse I will bl som time
before the battleship Is ready to ho placed
In commission The governor has not
been notified directly as to the probable
date when the battleship Utah will b
out of the shipyards but when that time
tme
comes a fair daughter of Utah will be
named who wIll have the honor or chris
toning the new fighting machIne which
bears the name of the state I
In a short time Governor Spry will ap
point a committee of Utah men and wo
men to devise the best means of pro
muting a sliver set or some other token
from this state to be used on the now
hip He believes Jt would bring mor
general satisfaction to have the children
of the public and private schools of the
state contribute each a small sum which
collected In one fund would be sufficient
to purchase a most elaborate sIlver sen
Ic I Is hopid b the governor that this
scheme will be carried out sad othe
with whom he has discussed th mater

The christening of the battleship wfli
hardly take place for some time amid
