One Night With Police

ells bad K ot the railing that separates
the serge nis office from the rear of
the building Patrolman Mike Conyers
is also on office duty The police re
porter is perched on a stool near the
sergeants desk
vt S oclock the telephone rang in
V ir YOU staccato which may mean that
> me one is drunk some one has been
kurdered some wife has been beaten by
k drunken husband or that a fire is
iping out a section of the city One
of the Joys of answering that telephone
Is that you never know until you have
been told whether its ring means loss
of life or the prosaic Caasady all
ight which Is the outside patrolmans
method of notifying his superior that
e is still on the job
The bell rang Sergeant Spears an
Hred it
Whats happened over there

ever varying in its tone whether the

Tingallng
It is the telephone again
Whats that family row 677 West
First South street theres shooting
down there all right
Mike Conyere theyre raising hell in
Greektown Slide down there and see
whats doin
Pollee Griffin comes in with his re
port of the fight on South Temple

Just a bunch scrappin Roy Condi
soaked some other guy In the nose and
I sent the bunch home Candle said

blood all over his clothe
TingaUng
Clough all right yes tomorrows

Tingaling
Harveyall right
Patrolman Conyers comes in with the
report that theres nothln doin in
Greel town A couple of excitable for
eigners had a quarrel and there was
some shooUng but nobody hurt
I want you to find my brother ex
claimed a girl who came quickly in and
appealed to the desk sergeant with a
directness that showed familiarity with
the customs of the station Hes been
missing since yesterday and he had
25
Whats his name asked the ser
geant Lost brothers and husbands are
always in demand In the desk sergeants
office
officeWill
Will Sorensen
All right well look him up says
the sergeant
Then there came into the station a
men who was pitifully oM pitifully
dirty pitifully ragged and pitifully
weak The old voice quavered as he
asked
Can I stay tonight r
at You back again uncle In
quires the sergeant in a tone of as
sumed surprise but in which there is
nothing of unkindness
But the old man is assigned to a
bench somewhere downstairs where it
Is warm To the casual observer the
sergeants question may have appeared
lacking in sympathy but that same
question has been repeated scores of
times to that same old man and each
time the sergeants voice carries just
the same amount of shocked surprise
The old man has grown to like It He
is a regular
A patrolman brought in a man who
gave the name of Abase Simms The
sergeant showed no interest in the ar
rival other thart that exhibited in the
remark You have not been in to see
us for almost a week
Simms Is a man with a long droop
Ing worriedlooking mustache and
tired eyes He was drunk He had a
long scrawny neck long scrawny arms
and an excitable nature When he gets
excited his Adams apple seems to be
having heart throbs Alonzo was calm
until he was searched When the pa
trolmen took a small bottle of patent
medicine from his pocket he wept and
begged that it be given back
Its the only thing that has kept me
alive for years he cried
Patcrit medicine Jag growled Ser
geant Spears disgustedly His remark
interpreted means that the prisoner
bad reached his state of ecstatic hilri
ousness by means of remedies sold In
drug stores containing a percentage of
alcohol
Alonso was led cellward singing
Rocked in the Cradle cf the Deep He
continued to sing long after he was in
the drunkhouse
If I cant have my ddycine I dont
want to be locked up It was cold in
there the last time whined Alonao to
the patrolman
Then you go and git locked up
Somewhere else suggested the patrol
man AS he banged the big iron door
At times there are noised resembling
the bombardment in a boiler factory I
This is caused by the drunks who
finding the drunkhouse little to their
liking spend the greater portion of tie
night in beating upon the castIron
door
In a little while two welldressed men
walked into the station Both appeared
rather the worse for a night out
Want to Be Arrested
We want to DP arrested calmly an
nounced one of them
Fer the luv uv hivln exclaimed
Denny Sullivan reverting to the Irish
he always uses when excited
Sergeant Spears grinned amiably
Whats the charge he inquired
Anything replied the visitor You
see weve stayed out too late and if we
start home now we get might get held
up Now youve got a nice neat place
here and we can stay till daylight and
go home in safety
Youd tetter see the lieutenant said
Snear
The Ucutcuaiit walked out of his
sanctum firmly like a man who has a
duty to perform and Is going to per
form it without unnecessary delay
You cant stay here he said
They looked disappointed
Couldnt we lieutenant said one of
them persuasively couldnt we lieu
tenant I ask you mind as man to
mancouldnt we commit an assault
on that man back there or maybe the
desk sergeant You know what I
mean lieutenant Just a gentle quiet
kind of an assault so we could be
charged with something and locked up
and let go in the morning without it
costing us anything Youve got a kind
face lieutenant Couldnt we hit that
man over there gently once or twice
not to hurt himand then be held for
1
the night
I wouldnt advise it replied Lieu
tenant Shannon because the man you
just pointed out is Sullivan If you hit
him you wont stop here youll go to
the hospital Now clear out
Dont that win from four aces
queried Spears Theres men trying to
get arrested and if we pinched em
theyd probably roast us to the last day
of our lives
A little later a man was dragged into
the station by a patrolman He was
thrust before the railing with the re
quest that a charge of assault be placed
against him He was not tlp kind of a
fellow one meets in the daytime this
man His was the eternal life of dark
ness filth and crime with never a
thought beyond his own sordid self He
gave the name of John Jones which
was of course incorrect
What did he do asked Spears
I found him said the patrolman
looking at him as a man might look
at a small but vicious dog beating a
woman in the mouth in Victoria alley
Shell oe in soon He had her face bleed
ing and wa holding her by the throat
so she couldnt fall
The woman came in while the patrol
man was speaking Her face was
swollen from the impact of the mans
fists Her eyes were swelling and her
mouth was battered and crushed until It
seemed cruel to ask her to speak
Wheres my man and asked
The man turned towards her with
a whine
Git me outer here Mayme he
begged
The womans eyes lightened She
tried to smile
How much she asked of Spears
Ten dollars bail said the sergeant
A quick whisking of skirts and the
woman produced the money Then
with the man she left the room The
sergeant looked at the patrolman and
the patrolman looked at the sergeant
Neither spoke There is nothing to be
said when affection like that be it ani
mal or spiritual bares itself to public
inspection Spears cleared his throat
muttered an oath and lighted a cigar
The patrolman saluted and returned to
his beat The occurrence is one that is
repeated three or four times each 24
hours
This is but a part of the night shifts
work and last Saturday night was one
of tins quietest in the police
history of Salt Lake that is

OPTION GIVEN ON l
CHOICE PROPERTY
IN MAIN STREET
Continued from page 1
ner a only an integral part of the op
erations that are afoot notwithstanding
that nearly a quarter of a million Is in
volved in the transfer The property has
long been regarded as the most valuable
corner south of Third South street and
th4f sale of it will add new Impetus to
operations in that part of the business
section
It was whispered among real estate
men yesterday that the property at the
northwest corner of Fourth South aad
Main street also purchased by Mr New
house three yean ago would be included
In the new movement before the final de
tail in the general plan was arranged
Because ot the great secrecy of the new
move and the concerted attempt upon
the part of those directly interested to
muffle the name of the buyer it is gen
erally intimated that a realty coup rival
ling that of the Newhouse deal or tha
Auerbach purchase will be added to the
operations of 1SW before the end of the
present month
Other Deals Under Way
While this plunge in Main street realty
merely emphasizes the truth of the state
ment that fortunes are to be made every
day in Salt Lake real estate other deals
are going on about the edge of the
charmed district that In their small way
show to what extent an investor may in
crease his fortune
Last July Hoyt Sherman gave an option
on the southeast corner of Seventh South
and State streets a lot ten by ten rods
in dimensions He received about 17000
for the property The final payment was
made the first of September and the
property came into the possession of Dr
C I Douglass Mrs Ruth Douglass and
F M Johnson of Danley A Johnson
Last week James Hogle became attracted
by the growing values in State street
property and he bought the corner for
25000 making a net profit to the three
owners who sold to him of J8000 This
merely represents the advance in values
In three months matter of SO per cent
Main street realty figured again in the
real estate transactions of yesterday when
Addison Cain sold to the Doris Trust
company a lot just south of Salt Palace
on the east side of Main street for MOOO
It has a frontage of seventyfive feet and
a depth at one place of 108 feet and at
another of 136 feet A terrace will be
built on the property at a cost of 39000

by The HeraldRepublican last night
upon the probable effect the insurance
scandal would have upon the policy

The status of the policy holders heve
cannot be changed or affected said
Commissioner Squires unless the cap
ital of the company Is Impaired The
dispatch does not state whether this
is I a fact 01 not and I would have to
wait for formal notice before any ac

mittee for the railways in the territory
and will be handled in the usual man
ner The demands of the train employee
in train and yard service east of Chi
cago cannot take proper form even for
deliberate consideration between the
railway officials and their employes be

All this talk about a trike of the
Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen and
affiliated organisations is absurd and
the membership of the organization
fully realizes it
Increased Freight Rates
Washington Dee ITrie General
Managers association which will rep
resent the thirtytwo eastern railroads
in conference with the operating train
men unions for an increase in wages
expects the propositions of the em
ployes to be submitted the latter part
of this week probably Friday
It was said that the demand for a
10 per cent Increase would not be re
jected peremptorily but that the rail
roads in considering the demands
would take into cognisance their own
desire for an increase in freight rates
which has been in contemplation for a
long time
Rumors Premature
New York Dec C Rumors of an
impending strike said Vice President
Murdock of the Brotherhood of Rail
way Trainmen today are premature
and we believe they are circulated to
Influence the roads of the northwest
Into granting demands of the Switch
mens Union of North America We
have nothing to do with that movement
and have troubles enough of our own
without entering Into any others
Our proposals have not been sub
mitted tothe management of the east
ern railroads and we have no reason
to suppose that they will be refused
until they are submitted It is no secret
that we have long felt we are
entitled to higher wages A demand
for them was deferred two years ago
when the financial panic caused a
pause
A H Smith vice president and gen
eral manager of the New York Central
said today
The company is on the most friendly
terms with its employee
In other well informed quarters it
wa said tonight as the railroads have
long contemplated an increase in
freight rates they are not in a posi
tion to treat the request for an increase
brusquely in wages from their employes too I
Chicago Dec IThe General Mana
gers association of the strikebound
railroads of the northwest issued a
statement tonight declaring that there
would be no gloomy Christmas for any
one because of inability of the roads
to deliver Christmas freight
At the close of the sixth day of the
switchmens trike reads the state
ment we have shown greater progress
than any day since the strike was
called That we feel little concern
about our ability to move Christmas
merchandise livestock and perishable
freight Is evidenced by the fact that
all lines continue to accept traffic to
and from all points without restric
tion and that unless conditions wert
practically normal It can be readily de
termined that the railroads would
hardly continue to accept freight to
fill up their terminals and freight l
houses at the risk of enormous losses
It has been stated that the coming
Christmas would be a gloomy one be
cause of failure of the railroads to
transport merchandise With refer
ence to this we feel that the public
need feel no concern
The railroads at no time have been
apprehensive of any controversy in
dealing with other organizations and
the labor leaders themselves to be met
in the future undoubtedly have the
same attitude toward the railroads
The time is at an end when labor or
ganizations pursuing fair and business
like methods cannot sit side by side
with the higher officers of the rail
roads and discuss in confidence their
differences
The railroad conference committee is
at work obtaining authority from rail
road lines Involved to meet a commit
tee from the Switchmens union
