"Tho attempt to distort tho third term
ida Into something dangerous and un
American," said ono of the Governor s
friends yesterday, 'is proving something
of a boomerang and Is consequently being
abandoned. It is seen to bo a confession
that "Vclls cannot be objected to on any

against his nomination for a third term Is

like to step Into his shoes. The people sec

Tho Governor was found ln his office
during tho afternoon yesterday, with coat
and suspenders otV, licking Into the cam
1 pign with the spirit of an old-time poll-
I ' tlcian.
1 I "Well, I see you give us all a roast this
morning," said he to The Tribuno man,
rnferrlntr to an article In which tho ob-
Jectlona to the threo gubernatorial candl-
dates were pointed ouu "That's all right.
I rm not complaining, you see. Fact Is, I
i i am In most excellent humor. Why
shouldn't I be good-natured? Things arc

I ' ; indorsements every day, and you will sco

i them." e
1 1 Sentiment in Salt Lake City has shifted
j 1 , . a bit from last week. During tho closing
t I days there was no mistaking the surface
; drift to ilr. Cutler. Those who wore for
,' I Hammond and Wells admitted tho pro
pondorancc of Cutler talk, and thcro was
. a belief among some of the politicians
, "on tho fence" that Sonator Smoot's sup-
H, , port of Mr. Cutler had started tho lido
H1 ; strong in tho business man's direction.
For somo reason this has subsided, and
r ; tho others arc having an inning. But tho
I Taco is yet to be won, and there Is a pos-
1 . slbllltv of development of conditions that
1 i ' I w-lli bring tho contest down to a struggle
1 1 between either two. At least this i3 froo

Col. John Meteor of Richfield, one of
the busiest and best-Informed of southern
Utah's Republicans, Is In the city to tako
a blrds'-cyc view of the State political
situation. He had considerable to say
about politics in a
Col. Meteer general talk with
ci.Pc Tho Tribune last
oies night. Asked about
Things up. tho condition ns ho
viewed it, the colonel
said: "Generally speaking, southern Utah,
by all the measures possible to take at tlus
time, Is mora solidly Republican than ever
before since tho division on party lines.
The last thing to causo tho party con
cern Is the result of tho approaching elec
tion. That Is go certain that It is en
tirely overshadowed by tho question of
the personnel of tho Republican ticket ln
tho State, districts and counties
"Naturally, tho district comprising Se
vier, Wayne, Piute, Garfield and Knnc
counties most Interests me. Tho first four
of these counties comnriEe tho Tonth Sen
atorial district and tne entire five coun
ties make up tho Sixth Judicial district.
"As an Illustration of. our way of doing
business, 1 might remind you that tho
Sixth Judicial district has already nomi
nated Its Ropuhilcan ticket and tho Tenth
Senatorial Republican has been called to
meet at Richfield on August 27, two days
after tho Stato convention, while tho
county convention of Sovler is scheduled
for September 3, whereas no J5cmocratlo
convention dates aro yet set in the Ju
dicial or Senatorial districts or Sevior
"Another Illustration of tho signs of tho
limes down In the cow counties might
be drawn from a conversation I enjoyed
on tho train this morning, with probably
tho most influential Democrat of tho
mining camp of Klmberly. He Informed
mo that this year .ho Intended voting for
Roosevelt and thought while ho was nt it
he would vot'er straight, and that ho
knew a score of other alleged Democrats
of his camp who expect to do tho same
thing. When the ballots aro counted and
peoplo aro wondering how It happened,
you may attribute the unexpected slzo
of the Republican majority to tho fact
that there are many professed Democrats
In Utah who will this fall voto for Roose
volt, but who for obvious reasons do not
now deslro to announce their conversion
from the housetops.
"As ln other localities In Utah, tho Gu
bernatorial situation la the all-absorbing
question with tin. For the reason that
wo know tho Republican nominee, who
ever he may bo, will be Utah's next Gov
ernor, wo arc tho moro deeply Interest
ed In the coming nomination.
"Cutler Is a dead ono In Sevier county,
or. rather, ho never lived. The pxplana
lion Is simple. Mavor Christiansen ot
Richfield Is an asnlrunt for tho nomina
tion for State Trenauir. All of southern
Utah wants him and wants him bad. The
combine back of Mr. Cutlor Is also back
ing Mr. Glazier of Provo for Stato Treas
urer. That Is why wo could not bo Cut
ler people It vn wanted to, without de
serting our only candidate, Christiansen.
We do not expect to desert him.
"Governor Wolls and Secretary Ham
mond have steadfast frlendt In our dis
trict. The former leads In Sevier. Waynn
and Kane, I think, while at present I
believe the latter Is stronger In Pluto ami
Garlieid. Among the friends of ono thero
Is no fight Kgalnst the other. The Re
publicans are all tinll-Cutler and the-anti-Cutler
sentiment is simply being allowed
to drift ln natural channels. In m
opinion, the reason Governor Wells is tno
favorite ln Sovler, Wayne and Kane is
that ho Is tho bettor known, and tho
reason Secretary Hammond leads else
where Is that Govornor Wells has neces
sarily disappointed rome candidates tor
."ppolntlvo offices who have led tho anll
Cutlcrs to Hammond. Either pf thoso
two would look good to me. Wells has
nmplv proved bin worth and Hammon-l
has loft no loophole for doubt of his abil
ity. I do not pr.tcnd lo give an estimate
of Mr. ruticr. because we do not know
him; but my opinion Is that his chief
strength lies In Senator Smoot's boosting
and wo owo nothing to Senator Smoot.
who Is our arch-antogonlat In our contest
for State Treasurer, our only local desire.
"When T volco my disapproval of tho
methods being resorted to, In dragging
Sonator Kearns Into every proposition not
in accord with tho Smnol-Suthciiand
combine. I vole the feelings expressed
evory day by Sovler Republicans. Tho
' reason .wo. cannot add our names to that
combines 3lnte Is obvious. They have an
aspirant for Iho same nomination that wo
want. But because wo cannot do this,
wo are dullv being charged with having
Ffrved ounwlvp.s up to Senator Knarns.
That Is falso and puorilc. 1 owe beiiator
Kearns nothing. Ho owes mo nothing.
Ho has never solicited my support .-inci i
have never volunteered It. In this 1 am
ln the same position os the balance or tho
friends to Christiansen, who. of course,
cannot do business with Smoot. Bui this
bullvragglng policy, I am awaro. i.s lend

human nature to display sonic such stub

We aro out for Christiansen. Senator
Smoot has something to do with our case.
Ho is out for Glazier."

local political situation in Piute and is
sanguine of the olectlon prospoct-
"Tho only uncertainty as to the coming
election In our county." said Mr. Mills.
"Is tho size of tho Republican majority.
Two years ogo wo elected every candidate
on tho Ropublloui ticket by an avcrago
margin of less than fifty. Next Novem
ber we hope to raise this to over a hun

many acllvo politicians and natural lead

aro always dropped and forgotten after

"One thing seems clear. Pluto is a

his late combines don't look good lo tho
old warhoraea and tho reaction Is telling
for tho senior Senator.
'Tho prominent party worker are di
vided between Gov. Wells and Secretary
Hammond for tho Chief Executive's chair.
Jusl which Is the most popular I cannot
say. but my guess would be that they aro
about oven nt this tlmo. Attorneys Gil
bert Beobe and Ed Spraguo and Undo
John Baler are for Hammond, while Rep
resentative William 13. White, Sheriff
Charles Morrill, County Chairman Horace
Morrill and other leading lights are for
GOv. Weils. Thero Is no hard flghl being
mado and ono of thoso two candidates will
win out without a scratch being sufforcd

"Mayor James ChritlaiiGcn of Richfield
will, of course, iiscolvo the solid support
of Pluto In his raco for tho nomination
for Stato Treasurer. That Is tho only
honor this part of Utah la looking for
and wo are entitled to It. Piute county
figures that that office would belong to
us Just as much as lo Sevier, because
Ma or Christiansen would get his nomi
nation from all southern Utah.

will give us her solid delegation. "Wayne.
county docs not seem ablo to agree upon a
candidate to represent It at tho district
convention. Sovler county, which has
twenty-three of tho forty-thrco votes at
tho district convention, thus holding tho
nomination In her hand, will not, we aro
told, make a stab for tho" nomination un
less tho outsldo counties fall to agree For
that reason wo mean to como solid for
Johnson and to land him."

was unbearable and Mr. Larren left the

state of decomposition ln which the
body was found It was decided that re

made. A rough lumber cofhn was made
and the body, together with the bed- !
ding, was- placed in a shallow grave
near the tent. The tent ropes were cut,

ticles were burned. The relatives are
considerably wrought up over the deci
sion and action of tho parties making
the discovery and will make an effort
to find he real cause of Mr. Sorenson's
mysterious death. At a meeting of the
relatives of the deceased It was decided
lo conduct an investigation ot" the af
