CASE OF PERIODIC INSANITY
Made hy Geeteral Maader.
soa of Preaeat State ef
General Charles F. Manderson, who has
been spending part of the winter in Cali
fornia with his wife for the benefit of his
health, has been Stopping In Salt Lake City
on his way home and unburdening himself
from the viewpoint of general counsel for
tha Burlington railroad In Salt Lake Da
pcrs. General Manderson coins a new
phrase, "periodic Insanity," to describe the
present state of the public mind on rail
road questions, and in view of the Burling
ton's refusal to pay Its taxes in Nebraska
for three years raises an Interesting point
against government ownership by recalling
that It would deprive the publio treasuries
of the great amounts of money now paid
In by railroads ss taxes Portions of his
Interview somewhat pertinent are as fol
lows: "It has occurred to me sometimes that
communities and nations have periods of
mental aberration that might be called
peiiodlo insanity, and the present wide
spread opposition to corporate Interests,
and particularly railroad corporations, la
some evidence to my mind that we have
reached one of those periods of mental
disorder that pervades the whole body
politic Unfortunately, the pace In this di
rection was started and, one may say, has
received greatly Increased acceleration by
our Over-strenuous chief executive. The
combative, not to say pugilistic, character
istic in his makeup seems to desire friction
and combat I wish It could receive grati
fication In encounters that would not prove
to be disastrous to the public welfare.
"Our constitutional provision that private
property shall not be taken for public use
without full compensation still remain and
the courts will not lose sight of this valua
ble protection to private rights. There can
be no confiscation of railroad property by
either state or federal authority. If the
railroads are to be owned by the govern
ment they will have to d paid for, and
the estimate of the Interstate Commerce
commission Is that the railroads of the
United States are worth from 12,00O.O0O,O00
to 115,000.000,000. This Is a sum that causes
the Imagination to reel. To It the cost of
great wars that bankrupt wealthy nations
Is a bagatelle.
"There are other matters of great pith
and moment to be considered. The rail- j
roads of the country are the most Impor
tant taxpayers In all the municipalities,
counties and states through which they
pass. And the millions of dollars paid by
them Into the publlo treasuries will ccaso
to be paid when the roads become owned
by the states and nation. Then, too, there
is no more reckless expenditure than that
which is made when the general govern
ment pays the bills. We have this lesson
In every state, and It la taught with em
phasis by the federal government. With
this increased cost of conducting tho rail
rood buslneoa and the Increased taxation
upon property, there would come a burden
upon the cltlsena of every state and cf the
nation that would be disastrous nnd cause
a financial trouble that would be con.tlnu
otis and ruinous to every section of the re
public. LADIES OF THE MACCABEES

NO SACRIFICE SALES OF LAND
Report Crelghlon Property Will Be
Poshed OaT la Pronounced
Owing to the publication of a misleading
article In a local paper relative to the sale
of real estate holdings of the late Count
Crelghton by the John A. Crelghtnn Real
Estate company, the impression is abroad
thai many large tracts of land owned by
Count Crelghton are to be thrown on the
market for immediate sale, regardless of
price snd that the real estate holding com
pany Is to be dissolved.
"This impression Is absolutely without
foundation." said John M. Daugherty, who
represents the holding company. "Tha
tracts owned by Count Crelghton will be
sold, but only in the ordinary routine of
business, and nothing Immediate in this re
spect Is contemplated. It is not necessary
for the real estate to be thrown over
board for Immediate sale, and. furthermore,
the John A. Crelghton Real Estate com
pany is not going out of onrporats exist

Three large tracts are controlled by the

alder Vladerts sad the Issae of the
Fifty Thoaaaad Dollars of
A chapter of rsptura and escape quite aa
thrilling to the parties Interested aa any
of the pictured scenes of the populsr novel
was that of Ray Piper Saturday night.
Piper wss sentenced to a term of six years
In the penitentiary for a burglary commit
ted at the Dennis restaurant, on Twenty
fifth and N streets, three years ago. He
want to the penitentiary, but succeeded In
escaping after being there but a few
months. Blnce that time he hss been a
fugitive from Justice. Captain Shields and
Chief Briggs saw Piper In John Rlche's
saloon Saturday night at 9 SO and Shields
entered by the front while the chief ran
to the rear entrance. Shields moved very
deliberately and was seen by Pipers
friends, who gave warning to the latter to
slip out the back way. In the meantime
w'hlef Briggs hsd arrived at the back en
trance, and as Piper slipped cautiously out
Briggs seized him firmly and demanded his
surrender. This to all appearances Piper
did with becoming meekness. The chief
held his arm and walked him around to
the front of the saloon. There riper broke
away by a sudden Jerk which threw the
chief off the curb stone. Piper ran through
the alley southward as fast as ha could
go, making a clean escape. The chief
fired two shots at the fleeing figure, but
neither took effect so far as known. The
chief was much chagrined at the loas of
his captive and the more because he had
Just been saying to Piper how easy his
capture had been. Shields, who knew that
Piper had been captured, walked bsck
through the saloon to keep an eye on the
rest of the gang who were In the saloon
and Just stepped out the door In time to
see Piper make good his escape.
