Vl?n .,f sovcral lys luid elapsed slnco the.
The reporter wan reminded of the story
oi a newspaper lorrespondpni In southern
Illinois who had been asked bv a Chicago
pi per to send In a report of a mine dis
aster, lhat correspondent had not been
cccustomed to Incident so exciting, and It
required him somo time to got himself
together. He merely telegraphed the Chi
"All Is excitement!"
That In a way explains the omission of
the. bulldog story.
Dr. Wilcox had been called on to ex
plain several serious charges against his
administration. He had told a friend that
he was "loaded" for his accuser", and tho
importer was not expecting tho doctor to
spring the kind of a sensation that ho did.
A moment after ho was called on to
nurgo himself ho took the door, and look
ing into the eye of the Councilman who
had been the most vigorous in his denun
ciation of tho Health Commissioner, ho
used some language that in some coun
tries might lend to a funeral. At this
moment lie reached toward a corner and
produced a club which looked at that In
stant soven or eight times larger than it
It was as lonpr as a walking stick and as
heavy as a ball bat.
From that time the reporter lost his
equipoise. He remembers hearing broken
sentences of the doctor's narrailvo and
recalls the manner in which tho officer
brandished that club, but the light with
the bulldog was the tamest part of thu
Incident at that moment. And In reflect
ing on what might have happened if iho
Councilman had not backed down the re
porter forgot all about the belated story
of the- fight with the dog.
It was told that tho Councilman had his
pockets full of evldenco against tho
Health Commissioner, and It Is now sus
pected that he. too, had had no Intima
tion that Dr. Wilcox had fought with a
bulldog, but had brought the club along
with him to back up ills statements In the
good old way.
It Is possible that the- Sanitary commit
tee of the Council would have taken tho

LITTLE IS KilQWN
OF ALPINE CREEK
Local Experts Are Not Enthusiastic
Over the Prospect of City
vrajATEK power experts of this city,
ufi while with one accord cxpress
f y ing the desire to avoid appear
ing In tho attitude of "knock
ing" the Garff & Sons lighting proposi
tion now under consideration by tho
CItj' Council, are plainly not favorably
Impressed with the scheme for procur
ing power which the Gurffs have In
view. The American Fork proposition,
some of them claim, must be elimi
nated entirely from the reckoning, for
the reason that the Utah County Light
and Power company has the best pow
er location on that stream, and is un
able to guarantee a greater minimum
than 400 horsepower.
This leaves the Garffs with only the
power to be developed from Alpine
creek on which to depend for running
their lighting plant, so far as their
plans have been disclosed. Alpine
creek Is a very small mountain stream
which heads in the vlclnit' of Lone
peak and empties Into Utah lake below
Lehi. Its drainage area can hardly
exceed thirty-two square miles, and
may be as small as fifteen square biles.
From the fact that the creek is abso
lutely dry the greater part of the sum
mer season, the minimum of power to

proposed to utilize, a decidedly uncer
"Utilization of the underflow of a
stream for power purposes Is expensive
under the most favorable circum
stances," said a well-known engineer
'yesterdaj', "and I can't believe that
practical men would back that kind
of a scheme with a great deal of capi
tal. If these men are going back on
Alpine creek far enough to get a head
of H00O feet In a distance of a mile and
a half, it stands, to reason that they
arc getting at an elevation where there
Is comparatively little water, either
above or below the surface of the
ground. I should certainly consider
the scheme Impracticable, but so long
as the matter is before Council It is for
it to render the decision on that point.
It Strikes mo that even Parley's creek
would be much better for this purpose
than Alpine creek. It is certain that
I as much or more power could be de
veloped, and the loss from transmis
sion would be very much less."
For the purpose of inspecting the
sites proposed by Messrs. Garff & Sons
for the municipal lighting plant the
members of the City Council and other
city officials will go to American Fork
on Wednesday. Two competent ex
perts will be taken along to Judge of
the feasibility of the project The
Councilmen expect to leave Salt Lake
at S o'clock in the morning, visit the
sites 011 American Fork river and on
Alpine creek, and return to the city In
