George Croft n Man of Family is Killed Near the Cornerof Adams
Avenue and Twentyfourth Stroetr Body t J
Lifeless When Discovered
George Croft aged CO years an em
ploye of tho Bell Tolophono company
was electrocuted this afternoon at
220 oclock while at work on tho
telephone line on Twentyfourth
street near Adams avenue
Croft was discovered lying across
the telephone wires In midair and in
vestigation proved that he was dead
It Is thought that the mans death
was caused by tho crossing of the
Harry Lawrence the young man
who created some little excitement
In the city yesterday by returning to
the Parry place which ho had bur
glarized tho day before and being
captured alter a chase by an officer
In an automobile has confessed to
Detective Ponder that ho burglarized
the Parry residence and the Cottage
rooming house stealing therefrom
jewelry and other things of value
amounting to about 150
The man was determined Immedi
ately after hi arrest that he would
not divulge tho secrets of his heart
and he actually went so fat as to
deny that ho was implicated In the
robberies but after reflection and a
talk with his sweetheart a respect
ed young lady ol this city he con
cudod to make a bold breast of the
whole affair He says he entered the
rooming house and the Parry home
but that ho had nothing to do with
the burglary oC tho Stevens residence
Ho states that ho had a partner and
that he might have turned the trick
at the Stevens place while he was
making tho other hauls
This morning with handcuffs on
his wrists and accompanied by Dc
tectlvo Robert Chambers Lawrence
directed the way to his room where
he had much ot tho plunder cashed
and to pawn shops where he had
sold some and tho property was re
turned to the owners
The young man states that he will
plead guilty to tho charge of bur
glary and give the officers no fur
ther trouble if thoy will not try to
prosecute him on two counts This
has virtually been agreed upon
Samples of the silverlead bars of
metal at the police station were tak
en by the officers of the city under
tho direction of County Attorney Dav
id Jensen to bo sent to Salt Lake for
Tho value of tho bars of bullion
will have much to In tho prosecution
of William Beck and Rhelnbold Mal
ken who are charged with stealing the
same If the valuation Is more than
350 the men have committed the
crime of grand larceny but they arc
guilty of only pe lt larceny If the
bars are worth less than 50
There wore ten bars stolon weigh
ing on an average of 90 pounds each
Under the present price of lead tho
bars are worth only about 40 hut
if the analysis shows a little silver it
may enhance the valuation of tho
bars to 50 or more Returns from
the assayer will bo received In tho
course of a few days
It will be remembered that a few
weeks ago the watchman for the rail
road companies in the Ogden yards
found the defendants with thrco
other men endeavoring to cover the
bars of bullion and also their trackd
leadlnf from the cache He arrested
them and brought them to jail three
of the men however baking their
escape before they were out of tho
railroad yards The bullion was
found to belong to a party In the cast
It being on its way from the Murray
smelters to Its destination It is
evident that tho men burglarized the
car containing tho bullion and throw
It out upon the ground but the of
ficers say It will bo cjulto difficult to
prove the charge of burglary Beck
and Malkon have boon bound over on
the charge of grand larceny
In the police court this moniinp
there wore but two persons charged

than accopUblu on tho now block of
Hudson avenue Thin movoment for
what Is termed a clean street U
lead by Josoph Peery They have con
siderable property Interests on tho
now thoroughfare so have both a
moral and economic Interest in tho
project which they IH fostering I
In an effort to get the othr prop
erty holders to combine with them
In the project a circular letter baa
been sent out of which the following
IB an extract I
Hudson avcnuo stands In danger
of being the Commercial street of I
Ogden III that event It will bo a hlsa
nnd byword to all shunned by re I I
spectable women and a real menace
and Injury to tho Washington avenue
It can bE made a clean street
whoro mothers will go and send their
children that will increase In value
rapidly and a street that We will
point with pride on owning property jI
therein It all depends on the owners I
J suggest that we call a meeting
of the property owners and work up
a sentiment among them to make
Hudson acenuts a clean and respect
able street I would like to talk to
such a gathering Then to get their
slgnaUores to something like this
We the property owners of Hud
son avenue Ogden nutually agree
not to let our Hudson iveuue prop
city be occupied for saloon purposes
gambling dlsrcputabla rooming
houses assignation or bawdy 1l0U5 f
or places of III repute That we
pledi oursclvo to m our endear
oiR lo jsit Eli ulstin jci > ue a cu
moral tr t which wJi have agioil
flame In the conrnuilty That we
will frequent the street both by walk
ing and riding in yiuie that we will
1 assist the merchants who dn business
thireiu by giving thom patronage
It is likely that a meeting of the
property owners will be held within
It few days when some such resolu
tion as the one above quoted will
j be acted upon
i This moral movement is backed ma
I torially by the plans of buildings
which a number of Hudson avenue
I men now have in the hands of archi
tects J T Hurst reccntlv organized
I a company to Improve tho Auditor I
I hum which will face the new avenue
