Temperance Workers Charge
S Justice Morrison With Fa
voring Liquor Interests
Asserting that Justice of the Peace R
B Morrison of Helper has wilfully at
tempted to interfere with dispatch In
the prosecution of saloonkeepers in that
city who have broken the ordinance reg
ulating liquor traffic Mrs L P Bow
die president of the Helper union of
the W C T U has sent a detailed
communication regarding recent liquor
cases in Helper to The HeraldRepubli
The communication was read over the
telephpne to Justice Morrison last
night He took exceptions to her state
ments and said that there was a plot
on foot in the city to unseat hint and to
prevent the law from going through its
regular channels
The statement made by Mrs Bqwdte
is as follows
On November 4 all saloons were no
tified to discontinue until they had filed
bond or otherwise conformed With the
new ordinance
Three saloons nanely Flamme Bor
golto and Yaignattl were refused li
cense their places of business being sit
uated within 300 feet of the public
On November 5 all saloons with the
exception of Vaignattis were runninf
Baconi and Martelll conforming to
ordinance on the night of November 4
Town Attorney Frye was informed
and he on November 8 drew up com
plaints and warrants of arrest against
Fl mme Bocgolio and Borgero for vio
lation November 5 Warrants were
served November 9 and cases finally
set for hearing November 15
Mr Frye refused to prosecute upon
his complaints ajid resigned The town
employed Mr Iverson to prosecute the
ca es
casesThe justice was asked repeatedly to
t the cases but refused to do so
Town Marshal E H Cotter swore
out three more complaints one against
each of the men but the justice refused
to issue warrants upon complaints al
ready sworn to on November 30 he
again refused to do so and on Decem
ber 7 he set the date of trial for Janu
ary 5 1910 but said the cases should be
thrown out of court as public opinion
was in favor of a dismissal of the cases
Law lessens and anarchy reigns in
Morrisons Reply
When Justice Morrison was informed
that the communication accused him of
having thrown the cases out of court
he made an emphatic denial of ever
having made such a statement
Then he made the following reply to
the letter S
There la a movement on foot hi
Helper to unseat met Leaders of this
movement have even resorted to black
mailing But I am ready for my ene
mies and I will fight them to the last
ditch wbjn they attempt to influence
me into permitting the law to assume
unjust channels and take illegal courses
This accusation is absolutely un
founded went on the justice The
cases which they say I have wilfully
overlooked are set for January 5 a fact
which is known to the people of Helper
I was viciously assailed in my court
room by Attorney O K Iverson who
has been employed by those agitating
the antiliquor crusade because It
would not make immediate disposal m
the case and set it for January 6
This element has attempted to circu
late a petition which I regard as being
directed against me in the attempt of
unseating me They have found diffi
culty in getting a full quota of names
and I have been given to understand
that they have even gone to the extent
of threatening certain men with loss of
their employment upon their refusal to
sign the petition
When asked if the attitude of Attor
ney Iverson in his court room had sem
blance of contempt and If he intended
to take drastic measures with the vol
untary prosecution Justice Morrison
said that he had that question under
serious advisement
He attributed the resignation of Town
Attorney Frye purely to the overbear
ing methods of those who are trying to
close the saloons without giving the fair
trial that thc law allows

that while there were no customers in

Father and Xother Relinquish All
Claims to Their Offspring
One of the moat pathetic incidents
the history of the Salt Lake Juvenile
court came to light yesterday when
Alma cae Ellen Heitsman man and
wife signed away every right to their
four children the eldest of whom is
only 1 years old and asked the court
officers to find homes for the little
ones Both father and mother are able
The spectacle of a father and mother
releasing all claims upon their chil
dren upon the grounds that neither is
fit nor able to take care of them
brought out a condition which has not
before been met with by tbe juvenile
court In almost every other case the
mother at least has refused to part
with her children preferring to work
rather than give up her little ones
The Heitsmans came to Salt Lake
several months ago from Lehl They
brought their four children with them
but the attention of the court officers
was called to the manner In which they
were neglected The children are
Leone aged 12 Birtron aged 10 Ro
setta aged 8 and DeLoite aged 3
This family was among the many
jotted down by officers of the court
for investigation but before anything
was done the father and mother voluntarily
untarily called In the court room is
the fifth floor of the city and county
building yesterday and signed away
their rights to the children A home
has already been found for DeLoite
with a good family in Logan and ef

Mr Kelsey said that the association
wants to procure a site on the west side

unable to find anything that looks satis
factory to him
