; It Is Finally Bedded to Let the
' Various Interests Coma-io an
: , Understanding. '
AYter considerable discussion, In
1 I whictfvthe saloonmen, druggists and rcs-
I tauravit keepers all took a. part, the
question of discrimination In the retail
i dealers' liquor licenses under the pres
ent ordinances was laid over to come
up again. Nothing came of the- hear
, Jng befovo the license and municipal
' . laws committees last f"night further
than that ui committee from each pf the
( interested nsaoclafibna will meet and
come to some agreement as to the
amendment of the ordinance.
' The side of the restaurant keepers was
first set forth by Judge O. W. Powers,
who argued that Inasmuch as the sa
'loons necessitated the employment of a
larger police force than" would other-
I1 wise be necessary, It was no more than
right that the proprietors should pay a
larger license than restasurant keepers.
In the nature of things, he said, there
must be a discrimination , between sa
loons and drug-stores and restaur
' ants. The one, he repeated, was In a
business dealing exclusively In Intoxl
I eating liquors, while. the sale of liquor
1 wan mercily incident to the restaurant
j Plea of Druggists.
Clem Schramm was the next to take
the floor, in "behalf of the druggists. He
started out by saying that he regretted
j the- fact that the pledge given by the
1 druggists to live-up to the ordinance at
! the time of Its passage had not been
I lived up to, but attributed this more to
the city oillclais than anyone else. It
was necessary, he said, for druggists to
take out a $400 license to All prescrip
. tlons, under the present ordinance, but
j that they cannot afford to pay the II-
cense of $1200 paid by saloonkeepers.
1 The saloonkeepers were represented
1 by Attorney A. J. Weber. He started
out with the statement that whisky
bought In a drug-store or restaurant has
the same effect upon the 7iurcha.;er
as whisky bought in a saloon and,
that all being on the same basis, they
H, should all pay the same license, Mr
H "Weber stated that the statutes, by Irn-
i plication at least, provided that cities
should Impose but two kinds of 11
H, censes, wholesale and retaJl. In his
; .opinion the city had no right, legally or
morally, to divide the retaJl -dealers Into
two classes. Saloonkeepers, he roain
talned, paid for a monopoly of the bus
HBb iness and were entitled to It. The pres-
HBa ent ordinance, he said, made saloons out
HBV , of some of the restaurants, and saloons
HBV . ' out of some of the drug-stores.
' Indulge in Dialogue.
Mr. Morgan of the Vienna cafe and
M E. Mulvey Indulged In a little dla
logue, In which the former admitted
HBl i that drinks were sold in his restaurant
HBi by the package or bottles containing but
HBl 'one drink. These, however, he said,
HBn wcro original and were waled with the
HBfl J Government stamp.
"Well, that is just what we object
HBb y lo," exclaimed Mr. Mulvey. "Do you
HBn sell to women after 7 o'clock In the
HB ' "We have made no distinction," an-
HBl swered Mr. Morgan.
HB I "Do you sell on Sunday?" was the
HB I next question
HB! "Not whisky; nve have sojd beer and
HBJ wines on Sunday."
BBl Mr. Morgan explained that women
BBj I -often desired a drink of beer or a little
HBj "nip" even, as he termed it, and that
BBj. they felt disinclined toc-nter a saloon.
BBji , j Mr. Mulvey, however, did not agr66-
HBni , j with him that they must go into rcs-
BBjl taurants to quench their thirst, saying
HBj that women often entered his saloon
BBV - during the' day-time and that he', had
HBl quite a largo women's trade. He re-
BBn fcrred to selling liquor by the bottle
BBjr v and not by the drink.
V 2r ' Other Arguments Advanced.
S Charles T. Murphy, a saloon proprle-
HB i tor, said that Salt Lake was the only
HB place he had ever seen where women
HB , could get cocktails and other drinks in
HBV restaurants and not in saloons.
BBj , ' ' George Mueller, proprietor of the
BBjji Royal, stated that he merely sold liquor
HBfl to accommodate certain of his custom-
BBji ' era and that he did not make enough
BBj',' i to pay his license- He said it was no
HBj . (' fault of the restaurants because people-
BBa l preferred to get their liquor there in-
BBV I ' stead of In saloons and said that as
BBnl j j the peoplo becomcmore educated they
BBVl I' prefer to alt down to drink rather than
BBV, i to stand up to a bar and get drunk.
BBj, After all had had, their say, It was
HB decided to let the different factions get
HB I together and come to some undersland-
BB ing on exactly what they wanted In the
BBb . ij ?hape of an amendment and thenpre-
HB ' i ' sent a report to the committees of the
BBj i : jj Council.
' I Petitions Are Heard.
Hi' The license committee took under ad-
' .J vlsement the petition of Messrs, Arnold,
BB I 1 ' i pickson, spiritualists, and others, ask-
BB I i mg that the license for holding seances,
BB l.i telling fortunes, etc., be reduced from
BBj ; I 5200 to $100 a year,

WOMAN 'IS ROBBED.
Claims' That Valuable Diamonds Are
As a contolusian to a trip to the Warm
Springs wHth five other companions,
Marie 'Renalngbon, nn Inhabitant of
Commercial, stneet, was robbed of two
diamond emrrlngs and two stones out
of a valuable ring, representing a total
loss of over $35 0. The theft v;as com
mitted in the c-.parlment house at the
corner of Second South and State
known as the H olmes block.
The girl wlio was robbed made com
plaint to the police yesterday morning
and said that s he went to sleep In a
room In the Hoi mcs block early In the
morning. A cou pie of hours afterward
she was awakened by the driver, who
demanded payment for having driven
them to the Springs. She refused, re
ferring him to Uhe man she was with,
whereupon he attacked her, striking
her heavily on Uhe face. In this he got
the woVst of It, as she was able to take
her own part -and he still bears the
marks on his face. She then discov
ered that she had lost her earrings,
and while hunting for them found that
the stones had also been pried out of
her ring. All the attention of the po
lice is being directed to recovering the
stones, which were of the first water,

friends of the decr-ased have avowed
their Intentions of raising enough

doubtful if they will succeed, and it 1s
believed that the city or county will

Will Be Effective oa
Belief That C. B. Fe!t De
sires to Appoint His
Councilmon May Object, and an,
Interesting Struggle May Be
There seems to bo spmcthing behind
the resignation of William D. Bowrlns
as deputy city auditor, which was ten
dcYcd by him to City Auditor C. IB.
Folt yesterday. The impression Is gen
eral among tho Councllmen that the
resignation has been forced upon the
deputy by Mr. Felt with the object in
view of appointing his daughter, Miss.
Bdsslo Felt, to the position.
Both Mr. Bowrlng and City Auflltor
Felt deny that there has been any
trouble Mr. Felt, when seen yester
day, said tliat he had not let Mr. Bow
rlng out, that he gave good satisfac
tion and that there was no trouble tlhat
he knew of. Mr. Bowrlng was seen Just
bcfor6 submitting, his written resigna
tion to the Auditor. He was nonocm
mlttal in his remarks, but did not sl.ato
definitely that there had been no trou
ble. He said that his resignation was
made for the purpose of taking a gen
eral agency for an Insurance company,
with which he has been associated be--fore.
His Duties Changed.
The fact, however, that he Is not at
tending to the same duties In the of
fice as has been his custom heretofore,
together with another fact In connec
tion with 'his resignation, would Indi
cate very strongly that there has boen
trouble between the two men. It Is
understood that Mr. Bowrlng- first drew I
up his resignation to take effect on
July 31; the resignation, however, j
which he afterward prepared, la to be
effective after August 15. This would;
Indicate tliat the City Auditor had in
tended to dispense with his deputy's
services on the first of the present
month and that the deputy had in
sisted on drawing his pay for the
month of August. It Is, therefore, be
lieved that they got together and com
promised on August 15.
May Appoint Daughter.
The opinion Is general among- the
Councllmen that Mr. Felt warets his
daughter in the position, and the Coun
cllmen, Irrespective of their political
beliefs, disfavor any such plan. The
position pays $100 a month and the.
Councllmen believe that there are
many worthy men in the city that aie
more entitled to the place than a
daughter of the City Auditor. While
many of the Councllmen believe that
Mr, Felt contemplates appointing his
daughter to the position this Is not
known to be a fact. There will be a
warm time in the Council if City Audi
tor Felt submits the name of his .
daughter as the successor of Mr. Bow- 1

TO EXAMINE AN
' Lewis A. Morrill Has a Consultation
"With Board of Horti
culture. LowlG A. Merrill, agronomist at the
Utah Experiment station and editor of
the Dcsorct Farmer, stopped off In Salt
Lake yesterday en route to Sevier coun
ty, where he goes to examine tho expe
riment dry farm, and spent the after
noon consulting with the State Board
of Horticulture which is now holding its
annual session In this city.
"The experimental farms are in ex
cellent condition and the prospects are
bright," said Mr. Merrill. "By co-operating
with tho Irrigation Jiureau of the
Department of Agriculture, which Is
under tho direction of Prof. Elwood
Mead, during the past ye.r we have
achieved highly satisfactory results.
1 We expended all our funds', but as the
1 Irrigation department pave us nn ad
ditional 53000 we were able to carry out
. our work on a more elaborate plan
with' corresponding advantages In re
sults. During the past year we have
been experimenting to discover how
much water various crops require and
when and -by what method this water
ma3r be most advantageously applied.
"Our late Legislature established six
dry farms and threshing Is now in pro
gress on two of these. The yields are
most encouraging and excel our fond
est expectations. The wheat yield av
erages thirty-five and forty bushels to
the acre and that compares favorably
with the product of irrigated soil.
"During the past month and in fact
all spring farmers have been visiting
our experiment station and they are
Jubilant over the result. We have ex
plained to them the scientific method
and positively demonstrated that the
hit and miss method does not pay. Aa
a result of our success the State will
sell thousands of acres of desert land
this fall. One company of Utah men
Is incorporating today and they have
assured me that they will purchase at
least 4000 acres of deccrt soil.
"This achievement gives 'Utah the
opportunity of becoming one of the
greatest agricultural States In the
whole country. It meaps that-all these
desert lands, hitherto considered value
less, will become great wheat produc
ing farms. It means that we have
gone one step further in solving tho
Irrigation problem In Utah. In the
near future we can convert all our
wheat and cereal farms into great or
chards, which require very little water."
AFRAID OF TRAIN.
Strange Terror of Adolf Beutler
Leads to Arrest.
Pitiful was the terror 'evidently felt
by Adolf Beutler of tho locomotive at
the Rio Grande depot .last night. He'
was so afraid of the train and the en
gine In particular, showing all the
signs of having lost his mind, that Tom
Miller took him up to the county Jail
for the nizht.
Beutler has been herding sheep In
Montana and It is thought that the long
periods of solitude have turned his
brain, as has been the case with many
other men. His home is in Richfield,
and when ho was found last night he
had a ticket for that town In his pocket
as well as nearly $70 In cash.
He was taken to tho county Jail,
where he was allowed to sit down for
a few minutes, and seemed to have
recovered his equilibrium, but when
they made a motion to give him back
his money and the ticket he broke out
afresh: "Oh! you aren't going to let
me be ground to pieces by that awful
engine, are you? Oh! dear! Don't let
that train come near me."
At this tho Sheriff gave orders that
he be kept In tho padded cell for the
night, and he finally seemed to rest
quietly. He will be examined today.

Still another claimant for tho guar

Mrs. Geneva Teeters, tho girl's own

Interesting ono and one that is unlquo
In tho history of tho DIatrlct court
As was- stated In The Tribune yester
day, Bessie Tufts was left a fortune of
$7000 by her fathor, Don C. Tufts, who
died on May 19. SInco then the girl
has been living with her stepmother,
who has adked to bo appointed guar

Sister Files Petition.
Another petition asking for papers of t
guardianship has been filed by Mrs.
Ixjona Tufts Burnett, a sister of Bessie,
Bessie lacks less than two months of
being 11 years old and until she has
attained that age she can have no say
In the naming of her guardian.
Mrs. Teeters when seen yesterday
said she preferred that her daughter,
Mrs. Burnett," be appointed guardian,
and that the child live with her. Mrs.
Teeters says that she contemplates go
ing to St. Louis, but that If she dues
not go she will file a petition herself
asking for the care of Bessie.
Why Sho Did Not Contest.
Mrs. Teeters stated further that she
lost control of her daughter nine years
ago, when Don C. Tufts secured a di
vorce from her. She said she realized
at the time that Mr. Tufts would spend
every cent he had In trying to get the
custody of their children, ono of whom
has since died, and that rather than
see the money squandered In court fhe
did not defend the action. Mr. Tufts
afterward married Mrs. Reynolds, v'ho
