George Lewis, former special agent
for tho Union Pacific with headquar
ters at Ogden, who was shot by a
man, angered by a report officially
made by him, wn3 buried In Omaha
under tho auspices of tho Elks lodge,
in which order he had a host of
friends A beautiful floral offering
of American Beauty roses from the
Ogden B. P. O. E. No. 719, was noted
by tho family among tho hundreds of
testimonials "of esteem received from
Mr. Lewis' host of warm friends who
mourn his untimely death.
Arthur Chester and family of Ogden
havo moved to Coalville and will moro
than likely spend the winter there.
This time, a year ago, sheepmen
throughout the country wero worried
over range conditions and they were
so discouraged that many of them
would have sold their flocks at
alarmingly low figures Tho ranges
wero covered with a heavy, crusted
snow in sections near the fall ranges
but there was scarcely any snow on
the desert lands where thero was
winter feed. The winds wore severe
and it seemed impossible to move the
sheep to places whero they could llvo
on the range forage. A great deal of
money was spent for grain and In
many Instances it was difficult to gut
corn and cereals to the herds.
At this time, however, tho flock
masters say, thore has never been
more encouraging conditions on the
range. Fred Harrington came in
from his sheep camps in tho "vlcln
Ity of Lucin, Saturday, and he says
tho ranges were never in better 'con
dition and that he has never seen tho
sheep looking better. There is plenty
of Bnow on the desert ranges and it is
not difficult to move the sheep to
those places. The entire country in
eastorn Nevada Is covered with am
ple snow to furnish water for shoep
and the feed is plantlful. He says
there has been but little loss in shoep

Postmaster L. W. Shurtllff states
that tho heavy part of the holiday
mall work Is over, but there are great
wagon loads of Christmas mail still
before tho clerks.
The postmaster says that the largo
parcels are not so difficult to handlo
as are the little ones, post cards
being classed among the most ar
duous mall matter to hnndle. They
come to the postofflce in almost
countless numbers and it requires as
much time to take care of them as It
does sealed envelopes carrying let
ters. "Santa Claus has done a great bus
iness this year," the postmaster said,
"and surely there must have been
much good cheer distributed to the
people of Ogdon. Weean hardly es
timate the number of parcels we have
handled and It has required much
work to do It. We have had extra
help, however, and have accomplished
i the task quite satisfactorily."

Salt Lake, Dec. 25. A. W. McCuno,
Jr., 39 years of ago, part owner in an
automobile garage at 121 west Soutu
Temple street, son of A. W. McCuno,
multimillionaire, was placed under
arrest at 4 o'clock yesterday morn
ing by Patrolmen Frantz and SUles.
At the polico station ho was booked on
an open charge, but ho Is being held
in prison, without ball, pending the
result of injuries received by Mrs. T.
B. Shaw, 715 East Eighth South
street, who was 6truck by an auto
mobile driven by McCune at tho cor
ner of Seventh East and Eighth South
streets, Saturday night at about 11:30
Mrs. Shaw Is at the Groves L. D.
S. hospital, and she Is not expected
to survive her Injuries another twenty-four
hours. As a result of the ac
cident, Mrs. Shaw sustained a frac
ture of the spino at tho joint of the
eleventh rib and two broken ribs. Al
ready the entire lower portion of hor
body is paralyzed At an early hour
this morning it was believed by the
attending physicians that she would
probably die within a few hours.
S. M. Barlow, chief of police, said
last night that In case Mrs. Shaw
died, it Is probable that a charge of
manslaughter will be sworn to against
McCune. Although relatives of Mc
Cune exerted every offort last night
to get him out of prison on bonds,
Chief Barlow and County Attorney
f E. Wllloy flatly refused" to releaso
Thero are three versions of the ac
cident: that of McCune, that of Dan
McGuire, a saloonkeeper who was
riding beside McCuno, and that of
T. B. Shaw, employed by the Troy
laundry, husband of tho Injured wom
an and who saw his wife struck down
by the automobile
"My wife and I left the Wandamere
car at the corner of Seventh East and
Eighth South streets, a Bhort distance
from our homo, at about 11:30 o'clock
Saturday night," said Mr. Shaw. "Two
other people alighted from the car
at the same time as ourselves, but 1
do not know who they were.
"We stood near the car until It
started running southward, then wo
started eastward across the street. I
saw and heard the automobile ap
proaching. While still almost half a
block away it appeared to me that
it was traveling at the rate of about
forty miles an hour. I becamo con
fused and ran across tho street to
the sidewalk, while my wife remained
on the track
"By the time I leaped to tho side
walk the machine had reached us. 1
cannot explain the accident exactly,
but I saw the machine pin Mrs. Shaw
to a telephone pole.
Mr. McCune stopped the machine.
When I asked him who ho was ho at
first said his name was Will McCune,
then he said his name was Olson. Ho
