Salt Lake City did not celebrate the
Nation's natal day this year in the pood
old-fashioned way, with marching, per-
I spiring hosts, in crowded streets with
flying banners and patriotic speeches
by aspiring politicians but It did cele-
i brate with noise and about the usual
j number of casualties. "Old fogies,"
i .sometimes yclept prominent citizens,
have come to imagine in these latter
j days, that some of the noise and the
i loss of life and limb can be evaded by
j cutting out the old-time celebration, but
I! vigorous youth comes to the front and

i the thing, but the ingenuity of this in-

devices more noisy and deadly and
I their use Is begun with vim on the
evening before and continue without
cessation until the morning after.
I Twenty-Four Hours of Noise.
The celebration In Salt Lake began
early Sunday night, and from that time
on the citizens who walked on the
street or rode in a street car could
easily Imagine that he was In the midst
of a regular Port Arthur bombardment.
The pleasing diversion of covering the
car trades with dynamite cartridges
and watching the wild-eyed maneuvers
of flip TlflSSPnirprK ivhrn thr c-ira nrt-mn
II along was a favorite one, but there were
: others, covering the entire gamut of
j noise-producing instruments from the
, firecracker to the small cannon placed
j upon the sidewalk and fired In the very
ears of the timid passerby. But It was
all sport and it all "went" on the
Fourth of July, and many of those who
engaged in It were boys of advanced
During the morning hours of yester
day, incoming trains brought mahy cel
ebratory from outside towns, so that be
fore noon the streets were well filled
with a holiday crowd. Business houses,
except those where meals, drinks and
other fireworks are dispensed, were all
dosed. Very little bunting was to be
.seen on the streets, but most buildings
were adorned with one or more flags.
Resorts Get the Crowds.
In tho afternoon the resorts caught
the crowds. The horse races at Cnl
der's attracted those ut ail sportlly in
clined, except a select number who
. know a good thing when they hear of
It and went to witness the ball game
played by the Elks' club and Commer
cial club teams in Walker's field. Many
thousands more went to the more staid
resorts, Saltalr and Lagoon, to enjoy
the bathing and boating, the cool lake
breeze and tho refreshing shade, with
picnic accompaniment, while those
craving extreme rest, and almost abso
lute reilef from the pistol's crack, tho
roll of musketry and the boom of can
non, were scattered among the various
canyon retreats, where nature Is kind
and only occasionally ventures the
small boy with the dynamite cane,
iargest in Ite History.
At Lagoon the crowd was said to be
the largest that has ever visited that
I resort on any occasion, tnero having
been almost 6000 on the grounds at 5
p. m. The day was spent there in a
quiet way, the atttendance having been
composed largely of family parties. The
only special event In honor of the day
was a fine display of ilreworlcs In the
Calder's also had fireworks in the
evening, and the attendance both after
noon and evening was very large. The
perfect July day made the bathing at
Saltalr Ideal and many hundreds took
advantage of it, while many moro en
joyed the dancing in the big pavilion,
where a double orchestra was provided
for the occasion. And Liberty park
was by no means neglected. Scores of
families took their luncheons to the de
lightful spot, found rest In the grate
ful shade and listened to the music of
the band, while the children made full
use of the amusements provided for
them. The large crowd of last night
was of course at the Salt Palace, where
a special bill of bicycle races was on
and the vaudeville attractions wero
more complete than usual.
Evening- Reinforces Crowd.

Fourth of July noises in the business

WILLIE HARKER STIRS
OP .THE NEIGHBORS
Little Boy on L Streot Uses
Dynamite to Celebrate tho
Fourth of July.
LITTLE WILLIE HARKER, who
lives on L street between Fifth
and Sixth, had all the boys in
hlo neighborhood beaten a town
block in tho production of noise yes
terday morning. "While they were try
ing to rupture the ear-drums of tho
public with ouch feeble devices as
bombs, firecrackers and torpedoes Wil
lie dug up a real brass cannon which
"had seen service In the Indian wars,
stuffed It to the muzzle with .black
powder, dynamite and nltro-glyccrlnc
and touched it off with a match.
The resulting explosion shook the
bricks from chimneys and the blrds"
nests from the trees. Willie rejoiced
greatly, but the other boys were cross
and envious. Willie put in a second
charge, tamping it harder than before.
The young cannoneer danced with glee
as the thunder echoed from the hllla
and bric-a-brac fell from the mantel
pieces for blocks around.
Before he had a further chance to
exhibit hl9 patriotism some of the
neighbors, Inspired, doubtless, by their
envious children, telephoned to the
police station for an officer, saying that
most of their dishes were already bro
ken' and that the windows would go
next to such an extent has the com
mercialism of the age corrupted our an
cient love of country.
Officer Bush arrived just In time to
prevent the discharge of a load which
would probably have finished tlie win
dows, little Willie and the cannon si
multaneously. The artillery was regret
fully laid away and tho boys jeered
heartlessly at Willie when he returned
to the use of ordinary firecrackers.
HOW THE CITY WAS
DECORATED FOR FOURTH
Although the decorations generally
were not up to the standard of previous
years, flags fluttered in the wind from
the tops of the higher buildings in town
and several of the business houses were
patriotically and tastefully decorated.
The Wells-Fargo bank building was
draped in the National colors from top
to bottom and the awning of Rowe &
Kelly's store across the street was hid
beneath the stars and stripes. Another
huge flag was hung In front of the Ken
yon hotel and from the second story
of Walker Brothers' store building a
score or more of smaller flags were un
furled. The one store in town that went to
tuiiiL" u uuuil- us wen ;is L-.N-iitriiau 111 niurv-
Ing a Fourth of July display was the
Keith-O'Brien company. The north
windows of this store were devoted en
tirely to the memory of the Nation's
birthday. The windows were one mass
of red, white and blue, while on one
side was the picture of Washington, an
old cannon, and several old firing
pieces, and on the other was a picture
of Roosevelt and stacks of modern
army guns. Beneath the picture of
Washington was a placard with the
figures "177C"; beneath the cut of Rose
velt was a similar card with "1904."
Between these two pictures of the
past and tho present hung old Liberty
bell, that was cracked while tolling the
knell of Chief Justice Marshall on July
8, 1S25. On the bell was the date, 1753.
Beneath the bell was a flag made en
tirely of carnations, tho handiwork of
the Salt Lake Huddart Floran company.
The window excited much Interest and
none passed up Main street who failed
to stop and view the display.
CARELESS SHOT BREAKS
PLATE GLASS WINDOW
One of the large plateglasn windows
Jn the front of the Keith-O'Brien store
was pierced by a birds-Hot on Saturday
night and cracked the entire width on
Sunday. The hole In the window was
first discovered about D o'clock Satur
day evening. It was too small to have
been made even by a .22-callber bul
let, and the supposition was that it was
made by a shot from an airgun. It
nnt until tYin. nftny-nnnn nf V. rl
lowing day that the window cracked,
and then It broke In a more or less
jagged line from top td bottom on either
side of the small hole.
The window Is ono of the largest, If
not the largest, In the city. In fact, so
large Is thus piece of glass that It was
necessary to remodel a boxcar in order
to ship it here One of the largest box
cars In the United States had to be
made eighteen inches deeper to accom
modate this glass. The value of the
glas?3 alone, not Including shipping and
setting, is $700.

MAKES HIS STATEMENT
Charles Chilvcrs, tho engineer of tho

garding tho fire In tho basement of tho
building Sunday afternoon. Ho says that
he determined to net rid of an accumula
tion of paper which was littering the floor
of a room, and to do so was burning It
under tho boiler In tho engine room. The
brick work of the furnace had lately been
undergoing repairs and was damp, caus
ing tho draught to be bad, which had tho
effect of throwing a volume of smoku Into
tho air of the cellar. By burning a sack
soaked with oil at the opening of the Hue,
ho had Just succeeded In getting the prop
er draught, when tho llro department ar
rived, llv nddfl that tlu ro was never any

and were entertained during the day
by the soldiers at the post. Old and

were equally treated by the boys in

For Breaking a Window.
Andrew Veallard felt that on the
Fourth he ought to do as many kindly
acts as possible and ho now thinks it
is very hard that he should have to
spend the night In jail Just because his
kind heart made him break a window.
Veallard saw a window in a grocery
store opposite the Snltalr depot that
looked very weak and shaky to him.
Accordingly, feeling well disposed to all
men, including the grocer, he went and
supported the window by leaning
against it. Whether he leaned too
hard, as the grocer says he did, or
whether the window was too far gone
for assistance, as Veallard claims, was
too nice a question for Patrolmen
Sperry and Davis to decide, so they
agreed to leave it to tho Judge.

A RUMOR was abroad lact evening
that from thirty to forty emigrants
to Utah had been lost In tho 111

rumor cauoed considerable Interest, espe
cially among local Scandinavians, but up
on Investigation it could not be verified,
Ono prominent churchman, who has con
siderable business with tho matter of all
foreign emigrants to Oils Slate, who aro

It was also learned that the Old Domin

f-.ny other steamship lino would bo used,
especially as arrangements are perfected
from tho offlco of tho First Presidency In
Another lending churchman pointed out

ARRESTED FOR SELLING
LIQUOR ON SUNDAY
Liquor selling on Sunday outside the
city limits has been mado the subject
of vigorous proceedings by the Sheriff.
Deputy Sheriffs Booth and Sharp ar
rested tho bartender at Calder's park
on Sunday. He had been warned in
the morning, and when the deputies re
turned In the afternoon they fouixl the
place open again and promptly arrest
ed tho man. -
Later on In the evening, Deputy Sher
iff Bell was passing by at 11:30 and
found the bar going full blast. This
time It was closed up for good.
George Bess was also arrested by the
Sheriff's men for selling liquor on Sun
day at the saloon at West Temple and
Twelfth South. It is thought that the
County Commissioners will take this
opportunity of revoking tho license as
they are opposed to a soloon being run
at that point.

with 2,000 picturesque Islands scattered
along the twenty-five miles of one of
the most beautiful rivers In tho world.
