TTTAH, SUNDAY MORNING, MARCH 6, 1927. by Frank Francis On his visit to Utah. George- S. Dougherty, known as the Sher- lock Holmes of America, declared that the present crime situation is the worst in the world's history. "What does he mean? There a time -when human life_was not held sacred and human rights were submerged by the power of might. Today there is much lawless- ness. Many offenses against law and order are committed, but life is comparatively safe. There are many hold-ups, rob- beries, and a disgraceful number of murders, but the world is grow- ing better. America has more than its share of criminals. An Italian, who has been in this country a few years, said to News Views: "Your hold-ups, burglaries and sun crimes arc a disgrace. Italv had its Sicilian cut-throat unUl Mussolini, becoming dictator, wiped out the gangs in less than a month. He ruthlessly pursued the bad man and gave him >o understand that there would be a rule of punishment enforced an eye for eye and a tooth for a tooth. "Italy has been cleansed of its foul spots." Tea Italy Las. but America is not willing to pay the price of a dictator to rid itself of the guiy man. But America must do some- thing to cope with the criminal element in a maciner more suc- cessful than in the last seven or eight years. ______ Is the improvement to come 'torn, an aroused public senti- ment demanding a better en- "orremcnt oC present laws, or are the laws to be made more dr.istic, as thcv have been by the Baum-js Uws in New York state, where felon, convicted a four.n t'me, can be sent to prison for lile- Two comments are on our ta- ble One is that Lord Ashfleld o England, on a visit to Now York made the observation that tke streets of New York were de- fective. ______ "They certainly were not planned for present conditions he said, "which not even the wis- ert could have foreseen a hundred years ago." ______ It was eighty years ago when Brigham Young laid out the of SaU Lake _and then Ogden.

Reading his resord, you will agree with News and Views that he is a worthy representative.

He received the McKmley congressional medal in the Span- ish-American war. Having had a taste of fighting, he took par; in the Boer war. Then he went into the World war and came out with more medals.

It was this latter proviso, In- serted as an amendment to the original bill, that drew fire from the outside counties who branded it as a "sop to the farmers'! and an insult to the boys' and girls' clubs.

A latent longing for the illusory gold at the rainbow's end- drives thousands of credulous persons to feverish search of family bibles anfl ancestral records in hope fabled fortune will be theirs. They are told by alleged agents of such estates as that of Drake. Anneke Jans Bogardis, Sir Hugh Mosher and Joseph Wilson Ingram, that for or more they will get a proportionate share of untold millions. A profit of per cent is promised, and it is explained that the fees collected are used for court costs, lawyers and investigat- ors. Widows, disabled veterans and those of moderate means have been generally selected as victims. Activities of the agents were once confined to persons having names similar'to the estates they were supposed to be attempting to re- cover for heirs, but as the. game progressed any one who had the money was a-customer. Investigators for Flint Grinnell, chief of .the Chicago Better Busi- ness bureau, found that a vice- president of a city bank .was inter- ested in one of these schemes.
