Christmas Rush Will Be Great
ly Relieved During the Last
Buying Days
That the early Christmas shopping cru
sade Inaugurated by The HeraldRepub
bean three weeks ago ia bearing fruit
ta reflected in the general statements of
the managers of Salt Lakes big depart
ment stores the centers of the hereto
fore two or tree days rush and crush
Just before Christmas
The usual Christmas trade In the ma
jority of stores Is advanced from one to
two weeks and although the trade ot
Saturday and yesterday showed a steady
increase the merchants are satisfied
that with the opening of the stores on
Wednesday Thursday and Friday even
ings they will be fully able to take
care of the belated shoppers This is i
in marked contrast to former years when
the shops were forced to keep open every
+ vemng for at least the full week be
fore Christmas
Not only has the buying period been
advanced but each store reports a grati
tying increase In the volume of business
for the month so far over the same month
of former years The increase In sale
varies from 20 to Jo per cent up to as
high as 40 per cent
The store managers are enthusiastic
hath over the increased business and
the results of the early shopping cru
There has been a noticeable tendency
said M H Walker general manager of
KeithOBrien company on the part of
choppers this season to purchaao early
I believe this Is the direct result of hav
mg the matter brought to their attention
The HeraldRepublican Is entitled to a
great deal of credit for its part In this
movement The Christmas shopping trade
not only began a week earlJer compared
to former years but the buyers are com
ms earlier In the day If people could
only be made to understand that It is to
their advantage to shop early you would
find few late hours in the stores It Is
to the purchasers advantage to do his or
her shopping early When every one
waits until the afternoon hours of the
last few days it puts a burden on the
clerks the service necessarily suffers
the buyer is not given ample time either
to inspect or to make a suitable choice
and bf ire the sale Is completed there
is a lot of ruffling of temper All that
i is to be avoided through early snoo
Sales Are Increased
There has been a noticeable increase
in our sales and we are doing a busi
ness far in excess of recent years at
this time Money seems to be free as is
shown in the proportion of our cash sales
to charge sales and it Is also to be seen
in this months collections Usually De
cember is a hard month for collections
owing to the holidays but this season is
an exception
Our Christmas rush Is easily ten or
twelve days ahead of the usual time
said J H Beifuss manager of the Wal
ker Brothers Dry Goods company We
are in the middle of It now you might
say and the heavy congestion of the
two or three days preceding Christmas
which has marked former seasons will
be materially relieved this year Here
tofore we have been forced usually to
keep our store open every evening for a
week before Christmas With the edu
cation of the people of the advisability
of shopping early we will cut that over
time In half this year The HeraldRe
publican has done good work In Impress
ing upon the people the early shopping
movement and by another year we I
should be able dispense with the open
store at nlgnt altogether
The people are not only buying earlier
this season but there is a marked in
crease in the trade as shown by our
Fairs Every one seems to have enjoyed
a year of prosperity and has money to
Although our sales at this time show
a marked advance over those of the same
Period last year indicating both an in
crease in business and earlier buying
yet there has not been the extent ol
arly shopping we would like to see The
People do not seem to have grasped thor
oughly the advantages of early shopping
yet said T G Webber superintendent
of the Z C M I stores
Forenoon Time to Buy
Take in the forenoons for instance
while they are not altogether quiet yet
there is no great rush The afternoons
however see our stores packed and
jammed Now if that trade and pur
chasing was distributed a little more over
the early hours every one both pur
chasers and ourselves would be much
better pleased The papers are doing
a splendid thing however in the early
shopping crusade and the results to be
obtained to the purchaser and merchant
alike have already been demonstrated I
H J Wallace manager of F Auer
bach Brother said
There has been a steady Increase in
our business this season and It is now
away ahead of former years We have
not however noticed any appreciable
earlier shopping although doubtedly
there has been some We would wish for
a great deal more of it
We are doing the biggest business of
years past this season said L E Lip
mai manager of the L A Cohn
stores As to early shopping however
I am afraid there has not been much
more of it than formerly People seem
still to hold back until the last week
and the next few days are likely to be
a constant rush Still though there has
been an Improvement
Although The HeraldRepublican has
done admirable work In the effort to
convince people that they ought to shop
early at Christmas time especially the
buyers seem to require a little more
prodding said W O Carbis manager
of the Paris Millinery company There
has been some earlier buying but the
effect of this is offset by the increased
volume of trade this season and the
present week is likely to be a repetition
of former years when just the few days
before Christmas every one is hurried

Thomas D Pitt former chief of po
lice died at his home 143 South Tenth
East yesterday morning about 1030
oclock Acute diabetes was the cause
of death
Mr Pitt first felt the symptoms of
diabetes about four months ago at
which time he went to Omaha for
treatment and seemed to derive a
great deal of benefit from the trip On
his way home he stopped at Rock
Springs Wyo where he took a long
automobile trip into the country and
was exposed to intense cold which is
believed to have been the direct cause
of the relapse which caused his death
yesterday Only four days ago he was
on the street attending to business and
assuring his solicitlous friends that he
was feeling in the best of health but
Saturday he again became His con
dition however was not considered se
rious until yesterday morning when
his two sisters Mrs B B Heywood of
the ICenyon hotel and Mrs John Tag
gert were summoned His sisters and
physicians hurried to his bedside and
everything possible was done to save
his life but without success
Thomas Denton Pitt was born in a
wagon on a road near Bannock county
Montana in 1854 His father was at
that time a freighter He lived in that
vicinity until he was 1 year of age
when his father moved to Salt Lake
where Thomas lived until the age of 17
He received his education here and af
ter graduating from the Salt Lake
academy went to California where he
engaged in the sheep business which
he followed for 12 years running sheep
through Wyoming Idaho and Utah
After this he moved to Corinne and or
ganized the Corinne Mill Land and
Stock company through which com
pany as general manager he was in
strumental in bringing a great number
of settlers into the state
He was elected county commissioner
of Box Elder county where he served
until 1896 when he moved to Salt Lake
after selling his interests in the Bear
River valley He served one term as
mayor and one as alderman in Cor
rinne He then engaged in the commis
sion business in Salt Lake until shortly
after Mayor Bransford came into office
in 1907 when he was appointed chief of
police Three years ago when the
American party had its first county
ticket in the field Mr Pitt was a candidate
didate for county sheriff He was at
il the head of the committee appointed
to raise funds for the victims of the San
Francisco disaster and his labors at
this work were untiring He is sur
vived by a wife five children two sis
ters and his aged mother The chil
dren are Carmelite aged 18 Frances
aged 16 Thomas D Jr aged 12 Vir
ginia aged 10 and Thornley aged 7
all of whom live at the family home
Mr Pitt was a prominent member of
the local lodge of Elks who have charge
of the funeral which will be on
Wednesday at 3 oclock from the Elks
club house The Rev P A Slmpkin
will officiate
Boosting for a greater Salt Lake has
become second nature to Charles H Carl
quist of the real estate firm of Burt Ie
Carlquist While one of the younger j
set of Salt Lake boosters he has made
a record of which many people years j
older than he might well be proud
As a member of the Salt Lake Real j
Estate association Mr Carlquist has
acted on various important committees
and fulfilled the duties incident to the
positions with fidelity and unvarying suc
The magnitude of some of the real
estate and building deals pulled off in I
this city during the past year has as
tounded not only residents of the city i
but the investing interests throughout j I
the entire country said Mr Carlquist
yesterday The year Just coming to so
successful a close has been a momentous
one in the history of Salt Lake All the
varied business and manufacturing en
terprises seem to have enjoyed unprece
dented prosperity
In our line of business we have don
more building of homes on the Suit the
Tenant plan than ever before People
generally have come to the conclusion
that they want to own their homes with
the result that there has been a great
demand for homes on the easy payment
plan We have been successful in plac
ing scores of families and have at the
present time a number of houses in pro
cess of building >
Everything points to the fact that
1910 will be a big year in the real estate
business With plenty of outside money
coming in for investment and local cap
ital in a wideawake condition business
men generally are feeling most optimis j I

Board of Public Works Fails to
Obey Instructions of the
On the eve of the report of the board
of arbitration of the celebrated Moran
claim of 130000 for patching the inter
cepting sewer it has been discovered that
he board of public works failed to obey
instructions from the city couacll and
i excavate over the outlet to ascertain the
i thickness of the cement which Pat Mo
ans forces laid The Inspector of the
board of public works Says the concrete
Is not over nine inches thick and Frank
Gawn superintendent for Mr Moran
says it is twice that thick Both have
so testified at the hearings held by the
The whole claim of Moran rests upon
he amount of concrete that be put into
the work and the determination of its
thickness will have much to do with the
findings of the arbiters Yet the cat was
let out of the bag yesterday tar Frank
R Christdnsen clerk of the Board of
public works when he told Councilman
Murdoch that no excavations had been
made by the board
The arbiters will report to the council
Thursday night but they will not pre
sent any information regarding the thick
ness of the concrete except what they
have gleaned from the conflicting testi
mony of the inpnector of the board of
public works and the superintendent for
Moran Councilman Hall arose at the
last minute of the council session last
night and suggested that the board of
public works be ordered to go ahead with
the excavations so that the board of ar
bitration could Include the evidence in
its report i
City Attorney TUninny observed that the
arbiters wouldnt look at the excavations
anyway and there was no use of repeat
Ing an order to the board He said I
he had talked with L L Dagron
one of the board and Mr Dagron had
told him an examination of the concrete
bout the outlet was unnecessary
Jam in Jordan River Is Re i
moved Only After Dynamite I
Is Brought Into Use
A score of families driven from the
shelter of their homes many of them
forced to brave the perils of resulting
sickness in their escape a monetary losa
reaching into hundreds of dollars in the
damage to property and livestock and the
loss of provisions chickens and other
fowls followed the inundation of an area
of two square miles when an ice floe Jam
ming and piling against the Ninth North
street bridge raised a dam ten feet high
and crowded the Jordan river out of Its
banks early Sunday morning
The overflow occurred some time dur
ing Saturday night when the floating ice
began to pack beneath the bridge and
the freezing weather began piling layer
upon layer of ice upon the solid founda
tion It was the early risers in the neigh
borhood who first discovered what was
for a time a catastrophe when leaving
their beds in the darkness of the dawn
they stepped into the icy waters which
flooded the lower floors of the homes
Street Supervisor Jake T Raleigh was
early notified and with a gang of men
hurriedly called together was soon at
work at the scene of the dam and over
flow With the assistance of neighbors
the occupants of the flooded houses were
removed to places of safety and comfort
and livestock taken from the barns Then
the work of breaking up the ice floe with
dynamite was began and to assist the
carrying away of the water from the
flooded district a canal 300 feet long was
dug draining the water into the river at
a point below Ninth North street The
middle section of the bridge was blown
out but it was not until late last night
that Jhe rivers passageway was totally
The inundated district Monday pre
sented the spectacle of a frozen lake The
lower floors of homes were flooded to a
depth of from two inches to three or four
feet In the barns horses and cows were
found standing In three feet of water with
the ice covering encrusted about their
legs In a number of the yards poultry
was found frozen to death Another seri
ous loss to the unfortunate families was
in the destruction of provisions stored In
the basements and cellars
Homes Are Flooded
The worst damage done was to the home
of John Sehy living at No 945 North
Thirteenth West street which is about
one and onehalf blocks from the Jordan
When Mrs Sehy awoke Sunday morning
it was to find that her home was flooded
with about one foot of water
Before the city forces arrived H Whit
ekar G Kettle and A Davis had gone
to the Langton Lime Cement company
quarry where they secured 108 sticks of
dynamite When Raleigh and his men
arrived two charges were placed in the
river In front of the Ice jam The explo
sion blew out the center section of the
bridge and allowed the jam to pass As
soon as the obstruction had been removed

greater part of the water had drained
from under the ice around the houses

most were A N Earnshaw No 913 Colo

J E Wheeler who Is 83 years old was
the first to discover the flood Sunday
morning He was awakened by the cold
and when he stepped out of bed it was
to place his feet In six inches of icy
A M Earnshaw who makes a business
of raising fancy chickens from lack of
boots was compelled to make a pair of
wooden stilts in order to reach his hen
house There he found that many of his
best chickens had bten frozen
Late Monday afternoon the bridge
which had been torn partly away by the
charge of dynamite had been replaced
by a gang of men under the direction of
Raleigh The pils of that part of the
bridge which had not been blown away
were still caked with ice but as the water
had a free passage through the part
which had ben torn away and as all of
the dbris had been removed it Is not
likely that another flood will occur
As a direct result of the flood Street
Supervisor J T Raleigh asked the city
council last night to take steps to build
e 1 tel bridge over the Jordan at Ninth
North street and the request was granted
without dbate The city engineer will
prepare an estimate of expense and plans
and specifications at once and as soon
us possible the work will go ahead
The council also reimbursed the street
supervisor for the expense he had ln
curred in buying provisions for the
Isle in the flooded district

Police Will Endeavor to Have
Burglar Suspects Giv
en the Limit
To insure safe keeping where there will
be little possibility of escape charges
will at once be entered against John
Phillips and Frank Willard who were
arrested Saturday and Sunday respective
ly under suspicion of having been impli
cated in the robbery of the Model Knit
aing Works safe and for having burglars
tools in their possession The maximum
sentence for this offense Is six months
It will be the effort of the police to see
that the limit is given
Meanwhile Chief of Detectives George
Sheets will begin to get evidence against
them He discovered yesterday that Wil
lard though but 17 years of age has a l
penitentiary record and is known to
have committed burglaries Outside of
knowing that Phillips is a man of crimi
nal Instincts and doubtless a clever me
chanic about the door of a safe his pre
vious career is as yet dark It is posi
tively known that Willard and Phillips
are pals
Phillips and Willard had occupied a
room in the Washington hotel which is
on one of the upper floors and at the
end of a corridor which is seldom fre
quented by guests or hotel attendants
At the request of PhIllips and Willard
their room had been left alone They
had made up their own bed under repre
sentation that they worked nights and
desired to sleep in the daytime
It was in this room that the detectives
arrested Phillips as he was rearranging
a net of burglar tools and making certain
corrections in the crank of a safe drill
which had but recently fallen out of re
pair Willard Is recognized by clerks of
the hotel as Phillips mate
Finds Piece of Fuse
In the investigation into the burglary of
the safe at the Model Knitting Works
Chief of Detectives Sheets found a short
piece of fuse It was pink in color and
different from any fuse used by burglars
that had previously attracted his atten
tion An entire roll of this pink fuse
was found In the possession of the Phil
lipsWillard due
Chief of Detectives Sheets stated yes
terday that thus far evidence against
Phillips and Willard was insufficient to
connect them with the Model Knitting i
Works safe robbery However the sus
picion hangs strong and there Is also
strong suspicion that there have been I
others in the room at the Washington
hotel besides Phillips and Willard who i
have contributed to the burglary outfit j
