And Yet Trade Is Fully Up to tho
Standard of a Year Ago, "With a
Very Bright Outlook.
"While the opening1 of spring activity In
'trade and building has been delayed by
continued unsettled and utormy weath
er, the last week lias been a very sat
isfactory one from every point of view.
Retail merchants report business fully'
up to the standard for the time of year,
wholesalers are unusually busy and new
houses are springing up on all sides in
spite of snow and mud
Tho condition of Salt Lake's jobbing
trade is particularly favorable at this
time. Many of the wholesale houses arc
absolutely ruehed with orders, collec
tions are uniformly good and there Is
every prospect that tho year 19 to bo a
record-breaker In the volume of busi
ness transacted This condition of af
fairs comes In the nature of an agree
able surprise to the Jobbers, they having
anticipated a measure of dullness on
nccount of tho Presidential campaign.
They find, however, that the sentimen
tal effect on trade Incident to Presi
dential year io more than overcome by
the railroad building which is in prog
ress, by increased activity In the mining
camps and by the splendid crop outlook,
I duo to tho extraordinarily heavy winter
precipitation. Wholesale grocers espe
cially find that thq extension of the
Hark road la adding noticeably to their
trade frojn that direction, while tho
country trade generally Is Increasing at
a surprising rale.
Real estate dealers are flooded with
ivnulrlea in their line, with every brief
prospect 6f passable streets, but there
has been little chance for closing deals.
A feature of the real estate situation Is
I the unusually large number of small

Work of Picturo Peddlers in South
Called to Attention of Senate
In tho Houso.
WASHINGTON, March 12. There
was an echo of tho Indlanola, Miss.,
postofllce case In the Senate today, when
Mr. McLaurln rose to a question of per
sonal privilege to explain a newspaper
report to the effect that the authorities
of that place arrert peddlers of pictures
of President Pvoosevclt and Booker T.
Washington who may chance to go
there, air. McLaurln said that arrests
of picture venders had been made both
at Indianola and a neighboring town,
but that tho arrests were due to the
fact that their wares wero of an Im
proper and lewd character and not be
cause they were selling pictures of tho
President and Mr. Washington.
These pictures, he sold, appealed
strongly to race prejudice.
Similar arrests also, Mr. McLaurln
said, had been made at Indianola, and
It was found upon the hearing of the
cases that a Cincinnati concern engaged
in publishing the pictures In question
hod many agents In the Interest of
Tho men were tried and some of them
sent out of the country, and Mr. Mc
Laurln expressed surprise that any
community should have permitted them
to bo tried. He said the penalty Im
posed by the law was entirely too small,
and expressed the opinion that the
death penalty would not be too severe.
Ho added that the arrests wero not be
cause the men were selling photographs
of the President or of Washington, but
becauso they were selling lewd pic
tures. Tho Senate considered but did not dis
poses of the fortifications bill. A num
ber of bills were passed. One of them
has for Its purpose the prevention of the
desecration of the American flag by Its
use for advertising purposes.
The following bills were passed: Pro
viding for the establishment of a light
and fog signal station at the entrance

"tho enlargement of tho military reser
vation at that point; authorizing tho
erection of a federal building at Sheri
dan. Wyo., at a cost of $160,000. The bill
making appropriation for fortifications
was then taken up.
All the committee amendments ex
cept one, for the purchase of a subma
rine torpedo boat for experimental pur
poses and that relating to the purchase
of sites for defense in the Hawaiian
islands were accepted. Tho further
consideration of these amendments was
postponed until Monday.
The Senate then went into executive
session, and shortly afterward adjourned.
