HERALDREPUBLICAN SALT LAKE CITY UTAH SATURDAY DEC 25 1909
NW CUTOff
IS PLANNED
Harriman Line Extensions Are
Now Being Surveyed For
and Work of Opening New
Territory Will Begin Soon
Preliminary surveys for three exten
sions of the Harriman lines in Utah are
being made and the construction of these
lines will be started next year The new
lines extend from Salt Lake through
Emigration canyon to Evanston from
Halt Lake paralleling the Western Pa
cific to connect with the Southern Pacific
between Cobre and Elko and from a
point on the Lucin cutoff to connect
with the main line of the Oregon Short
Line to the northwest The completion
of these lines will mark the first actual
railroad construction opening up new ter
ritory that has ever been undertaken by
the Harriman organisation Thy mean
the expenditure of several million dol
lars
The sale of the Emery tract of land in
the northern part of Utah and southern
Idaho which was announced yesterday
was made with the knowledge that the
Harriman lines are already negotiating
uitracts for the construction of this line
northward from the main line through
the Raft River alley in order to shorten
the distance between Ogden and the
northwest This line will bti of standard
nnstruction ard although it will furnish i
its own traffic as a profitable branch Hue
it will be constructed with a thoroughness
that indicates the intention to use it as a
part of tie main line for transportation
to the northwest The announcement of
the plan of the Harriman organization to j
build this line has been made uroi I
iicialiy I
Whether the line will run from Salin
on Promontory point through To th
iinrth or whether it will be built fr
Kelton I on the old line of the Sout
Pacific north of the lake is a matt
nf doubt for it is known that stirv >
Horn Kelton northward to the main line
were completed by the engineering de
partment of 1 the Oregon Short Lino near
ly three years ago and these surveys are
on file at the local offices
New Cutoff Planned
The other xtension to be made by the
Affiliated Lines as the Harriman > B
Ill is now called by its officers will be
the EvanstonSalt Lake cutoff and this
viii be supplemented by the construction
if a line from Salt Lake around the
outhern thorns of the Great Salt Lake
and out parallel with the Western Pacific
10 a connection with the Southern Pa
uric The fact that the Western Pa
TTi may possibly be an actual compet
itor for transcontinental freight business
the Harri
has made it imperative that
Ln system must cut down its mileage
iiid grades at every possible point and
tin circuit from Evanston to Salt Lake
End around the southern shore of the lake
vould greatly reduce be cost of trans
portation I to the railroad In its trans
continental business
The risins of Great Salt lake during
the last few years is also a factor in the
decision to build the road parallel with
ihe Western Pacific through Utah for the
ivason that th > cost of maintenance of
the Lucin cutoff has risen beyond any
early estimates and if the waters of the
lake continue to rise the cutoff will have
TI be reconstructed or abandoned On the
other hand the Western Pacific has aJ
itadv done away with doubts as to the
practicability of building a railroad out
< cross the salt beds of the desert while
11 has added the incentive of possible tu
tu r e competition for transcontinental
business
Meaning of the Franchise
Business men of Salt Lake who have
tvitfhed developments in the railroad line
c r the last decade saw in the application
1 i freight franchise through Brigham
t ti r t the plans of the Harriman lines to
inroduce u wedge whereby they could

gration < anyon railroad and thus
loik way for the entrance Into Salt Lake

Th I Oregon Short Line officials in Salt

franchise allowing the transportation of

th rquest of the army official to trans

KNOCKOUT BLOW BY I
A FEDERAL JURIST
Kansas Bank Guaranty Law Is
Declared Inoperative by
Judge Pollock
Topeka Kan Dee 4Tbe Kansas
bank guaranty law received a knock
out blow from Judge Pollock of the
federal court here today Two injunc
tions were granted by Judge Pollock
One of the cases decided was that of
Frank S Larabee a stockholder in the
Exchange State bank of Hutchinson
against the officers and directors of
the bank and J D Dolley state bank
ing commissioner His contention was
that a stockholder in a state bank
could object and prevent the partici
pation of his bank in the guaranty
law Judge Pollock held that this
contention was good and granted an
injunction
The other case was that of the Abi
lene National bank against the bank
commissioner and state treasurer on
the ground that the state guaranty law
is unconstitutional Judge Pollock
granted a temporary injunction in this
case holding that the law was inoper
ative and fixed a bond of 6060 to
be given by the bank pending the
fnal disposition of the case
Attorney General Jackson refused to
discuss the decision but A Mitchell
of Lawrence who is associated with
him in the case said
The guaranty law has not been
killed past resurrection The state will
continue to fight this question
Bank Commissioner Dolley refused
to discuss the decision
Salina Kan Dec 24 Senator Fred
H Quincy author of the guaranty law
said today
Judge Pollocks decision wae about
what I expected The case will be ap
pealed It is a fight between the bank
ers and the people If the law is
finally held void the people will see
to it that the law is remedied by the
legislature

Committee of the Explorers
Club Declares Dr Cooks i
Mt McKinley Claims Are
Not Worthy of Credence
New York Dec 24The board of gov
ernors of the Explorers club met today
in executive session and standing in si
lence voted with bowed heads that Dr
Frederick A Cook be dropped from the
rails of the club for frauds practiced os
Its members and on the public
Coming hard upon the heels of the
crushing verdict lately rendered by the
University of Copenhagen the action of
the Explorers dub today is the result
of independent investigations which in no
way touched upon the polar controversy
and the weight of Its disapproval thus
becomes cumulative
Preliminary to its vote of expulsion the
board met to pass upon the report of its
committee that has been investigating the
validity of Cooks assertion that he reach
ed the summit of Mount McKinley
Not Worthy of Credence
This committee in concluding an ex
haustive report recommended that Dr
Cooks claims that he ascended to the
summit of Mount McKinley in 1906 be re
jected by the Explorers club as not wor
thy of credence
The committees recommendations were
based on its finding that Dr Cook had
repeatedly made statements that have not
been In accord with facts and that he had
entered into agreements which he has
failed to keep and that the misstate
ments and broken agreements deal not
only with matters appertaining to dis
covery but to ordinary transactions feo
that no credence oan be given to state
ments made by him
Report Signed by Friends
Among the seven signatures appended
to this arraignment are those of Caspar
Whitney and Anthony Fiala both per
sonal friends of Dr Cook The commit
tee is further explicit in Its statement
that it undertook its investigation only
after first apprising Dr Cook of its pur
pose which he approved In person and
that it has disregarded entirely the tes
timony of Edward Barrill Dr Cooks
guide and of Frederick Printz his packer
although such testimony was before
thembecause it wished no cloud of par

interest to dim the integrity of its ver

Prof Parkers Report
Prof Parker reports that he was a part
ner with Dr Cook in the McKinley ex
Tjedltion both physically and financially
Dr Cook assumed the lead with a plan
that proved unfeasible and the party es
caped with their lives thanks to the local
knowledge of Belmore Brown
It was perfectly understood said
Prof Parker that after the misadven
ture all further attempts were abandoned
for the season Otherwise I would not
have left the expedition
Instead of this Dr Cook It is charged
sidetracked all members of the expedition
until there remained only Cook his guide
Barrill and one packer who subsequent

Showing the Provisions Gathered by the Volunteers of America for Distribution Among Poor Families
Yesterday
I
From 1500 to 2000 men women and
children of Salt Lake will sit down to
a real Christmas dinner today by the
grace and activity of the Volunteers of
America That Christmas dinner dis
pensed to more than 3W parsons at the
Volunteer home in Baat First South
treat yesterday afternoon consisted of
the following
Chickens 350 beef 200 pounds pota
toes 1000 pounds cranberries two bar
rels canned vegetables and fruit Mv
cans bread 460 loaves butter three
cases coffee three caeee sugar 400
pounds
AU day yesterday there was a con
stant stream of persons whose poverty
bee reduced them to the extremity of
either getting their Christmas dinners
from some charitable institution or
going without All day long as the
stream of hungry humanity surged
backward and onward through the in
viting doors of the Volunteers home
baskets were packed with the proper
proportions of food and sent into homes
in every quarter of the city
Captain N W Edson and his daugh
ter together with a corps of workers
were busy all day packing checking
and sending away parcels of cheer
A shivering woman poorly clad and
carrying a child beneath her thin shawl
asked for a basket
Have you a card asked Miss Ed
eonNo
No I havent said the woman I
didnt receive a card but some one told
me that I could get something to eat
for my little ones if I came here
Where is your husband 1 interposed
the captain
O I dont know the woman sighed
wearily If I waited for him to bring
us a Christmas dinner we would starve
to death I have five children
An extra ration was put In the bas
ket and when the woman pave her
name and address she wore a happy I
smile
From year to year the Volunteer
keep a redord of those to whom they
give Christmas dinners and by adding
new names and referring to old they
have a complete list of names and ad
dresses Postal card notices are sent
to each family in distress or want and
these cards are turned in at the Volun
teers home so there will be no duplica
tion When the first one to seek Christmas
dinner arrived yesterday morning there
were piles of baskets all ready for dis
tribution and the force of workers were
arranging more
The stream kept going in and out of
the doors all day and until late into the
night Captain Edson says he gave
away 350 baskets and It is calculated
that the averageof five persons to each
dinner applies here That would mean
that between 160 and 2000 persons will
be guests today of the Volunteer of
America

aration and J50COO a year alimony
I bear absolutely no rancor toward my
wife he volunteered in his testimony to

Lawyer Doubts Sincerity
But her counsel was disinclined to credit
Brokaws sincerity
It Mr Brokaw means what he said
commented Mr Baldwin to the court
there is no reason why they should not
be reconciled but I believe it is nothing
more than a wellplanned scheme to cre
ate favor for the defendant
At the resumption of hearings today
Brokaw was asked to describe the single
week of wedded bliss he would allow He
was sick at the time and quarrels and
worry were not good for him he said
His physicians advised him not to see

I could not seem to get Mrs Brokaw
off my mind he said And finally the
doctors said she could visit me I drove
halfway to meet her and for a week she
was loving and affectionate
Brokaw lawyer did not press him for
the quarrel that terminated his one
bright week Instead Mr McIntyre
brought out denials that Brokaw ever
set his servants to spying on his wife or
that he was Jealous of her physicians He
never suspected he said that Mrs
Brokaw would elope with one of the doc
tors whose name has figured in the suit
because said Brokaw the doctor was too
effeminate
He never heard his wife mention the
name of Bunnie Wells whose presence
in a house party at Great Neck L L
precipitated the final estrangement He
only knew that a man had slept in his
private roomwhat man he could not
find out
Man Slept in His Bed
I was deeply grieved testified Bro
kaw to learn that a man occupied my
room when there were bachelor quarters
upstairs Nobody except myself had ever

ders that nobody should sleep in my pri
vate room and Mrs Brokaw knew of it
Brokaw described how close Ala room
was tc his wifes and how he demanded
the name of the man who occupied it
Brokaw the explained why be twice
broke down the door of his wifes private
room Every time he tried to talk con
fidentially with her he said either be
found the door locked or there was a
maid in the room Once he admitted
these tactics drove him to exasperation
and the other time he feared hie wife
had attempted suicide
lIe denied that he ever spent M GO in
one year on his wife A better estimate
he said would be JSCOO curing their
separation he directed his lawyers to pay
her JIM a week
He denied that he ever spent 16000 OR
jewels for her

Wife Gets Her Veranda and
Now Can tractor Is Suing
Is a veranda a luxury or a neces
sity
This is a question which confronts Jus
tice Stanley A Hanks in a contest which
involves a husband and a wife and a
contractor who built the veranda All
have different views on the situation and
while the wife and tle husband disagree
as to the necessity of the porch the
contractor says that he certainly must
be paid by either the husband or the
wife for the installation of the porch
The wife and husband in the case are
Mr and Mrs A T Moon of 918 East I
Second South street The husband con
ducts a loan and investment office at
15 West Second South street And the
complainant in the case who wants 6130
for the building of a porch at the resi
dence is C M Woodle builder and con
tractoi
It is alleged in answers made by the
defendant to the contractor that Mrs
Moon and her husband had been engaged
In long disputes over the improvements
of their residence Mrs Moon wanted
a porch added to the buildings while Mr
Moon said that it was an unnecessary
luxury The household argument result
ed in a deadlock with small signs of
progressive development
Finally Mrs Moon sent for Woodle the
contractor and told him to build a porch
on the residence The contractor had
carpenters on the scene in almost a mo
ments notice and it was not long before
the porch had been finished
Then the question of paying the con
tractor arose The wife said that the
husband was bound to make the pay
ment of the charges But the husband
demurred that the wife should make pay
ment This failed to result in the pres
entation of money to the contractor and
finally he entered a complaint in the
court of Justice Hanks
WARDLAW SISTERS
TO EXTRADITED
Arraigned in New York and
Committed to the Tombs
for Thirty Days
New York Dec 24 Grewsome
phraseology in indictments against the
Wardlaw sisters charged with the
murder of Mrs Ocey Snead was made
public today in the arraignment of
Mrs Caroline W Martin the victims
mother and Mrs Mary Snead an aunt
They were recommitted to the Tombs
for thirty days pending extradition to
New Jersey
In the indictment against both it is
charged that they did take the said
Ocey Snead with their hands and cast
throw and push said Ocey Snead into
a certain bathtub where there was a
great quantity of water and by means
of which the said Ocey Snead was
choked suffocated and drowned
Another count charges that Mrs
Martin and Mrs Snead aided hired
and commanded Virginia Wardlaw to
murder Ocey Snead
The grand jury as an additional pre
caution charges all three with aiding
and abetting the victims suicide
More Document Unearthed
Further complications in the maze
of contradictory evidence in the Snead
case was unearthed today with the dis
covery of additional documents They
were found by the Brooklyn police in
the Henry street house once occupied
by the Wardlaws and imbued the de
tectives with the belief that the en
tire family had made a suicide agree
ment which was only partly fulfilled
by the death of Ocey W Snead
The alleged compact is said to be
revealed by letters signed by Ocey
Snead her husband Fletcher Mrs Mar
tin her mother and her aunts Mrs
Mary Snead and Miss Virginia Ward
law Accompanying them were several
blank forms of power of attorney all
signed by Ocey Snead The documents
have been turned over to the New Jer
sey authorities

brought this question to the fore to
day as h was preparing to appear In
court for the third hearing on the
cases of Mrs Martin and Mrs Snead

holding pending extradition
Colonel Haire declares he has evi
dence to show that th young woman

nacular as a dope fiend
By that I mean said the attorney
that she used drugs chiefly mor
phine for nearly two years before she
died I have learned this from talking
