Determined Efforts Are
Being Made, .
Mediation, the fiflethed Pro
psssd and Gompors Has
Committee Appointed Who "Will Hold
Conference With Packers on
CHICAGO, Aucr. 11. Determined ef
forts are now being made to settle the
stockyards strike by mediation. Nego
tiations .begun Dednesday between the
Retail 13utohers and Grocers' associa
tion and representatives of several labor
unions which would undoubtedly be In
volved in the strike ohould it be pro
longed much longer, resulted tonight
in the appointment of a committee com
posed of those who attended todny's
meeting to negotiate ivilh the packers
tomorrow morning, in an attempt to
bring about a joint meeting between the
employers nnd the striking unions.
It was the sentiment of all who at
tended todny's conference that, should
the meeting be arranged between tho
two opposing Interests, a settlement
."allsfactory to both sides could be real
ized. Meantime Samuel Gompcrs,1 president
of the Am-"lean Federation of Labor,
unci uecn summoned from New Tone to
see if he cannot accomplish something
through mediation. Mr. Gompers will
arrive hero Sunday morning. ,
Declined to Comment.
Tho packei-3 tonight declined to make
any comment on what, If any, success!
mjght be expected from the meetingj
"We cannot very well discuss this matJ
ter now," said one of tho packers' rep
resentatives? tonight. "We now have our
affairs ln a better condition than at any
time since the strike was declared, and
as for myself, I am unable to t'e on
what grounds we could meet the
Sanitary Condition of Packing Plants.
Under the direction of Mayor Har
rison, who was urged to take tho step
by a committee oomposed of labor
leaders and several aldermen, an in
vestigation into the sanitary conditions
of the various packing plants where
strike breakers are being housed -was
begun today. Several of the plants were
visited, but no flagrant violations of thc
law were found. The Investigation will
be continued. Tonight the packers sent
a communication to Mayor Harrison de
nying that they are keeping lodging
houses not in compliance with the or
dinances. Shutting Off Ico Supply.
Extension of the picket lines about
wholesale and retail markets was also
promised by union officials, A confer
once of the leaders was held and plans
were made to shut off ice nnd mfeat
from more establishments patronizing
the big packers.
Despite all efforts of commission men
today's receipts of live slock were so
heavy as to astonish the packers.
There were 23,000 cattle; 25.000 hogs and
15,000 sheep. With the New York pack
ing plants closed by the strikers, the
disposal of all the receipts was admit
ted to be a difficult problem.
Prize Fights Stop.
Prize fights for the entertainment of
u iv iioii-uuiun worrcmon at tnc stock
yards may cease as the result of an ac
cident that caused the cancellation of n
programme of three bouts last night.
The prize ring was In the Interior of
the stock yard s on Packers avenue.
Daniel Smith, employed as a strike
breaker by Morris & Co., was pitted
against Peter Ford. Both men are col
ored. Smith struck Ford on the head
with such force that Smith's arm was
shattered and tne programme was de
clared off. The police are said to havo
loyal and energetic, and I bellevo their
work equally If not moro effective.
"I have no fight to make on my oppon
ents. They are very excellent men and
lhave support that I should be pleased
Indeed, to have with me. but I havo no
quarrel with thoso who oppose me. 1
took that into consideration when 1 be
came a candidate, and those who know
mi; know that should either of my op
ponents win In .convention he will
have no heartier support than mine until
the people shall hnve elected him."
The two most discussed subjects In
local political circles Wednesday wero tho
interview with Hon. Jesno M. Smith and
the reported attack of Postmaster Clove
on the Integrity of Justice McC'arty of the
Supreme court. It was very generally
cOncedod that the lattor I: gravo and

New Stockyards Proposed.
There was a revival today of talk
concerning the formation of a new
stockyards corporation to build a gen
eral stockyards on tho Stlckney tract on
the Chicago drainage canal. This pro
ject is credited to the Hateley Brothers,
former packers now engaged In board
of trade operations. They are said to
have secured extensive Interests In the
properties that were once ln the pos
session of President Stlckney of the
Great Western railroad.
Donnolly's Charges Against Tilden.
"Edward Tilden, I want to say, Is ab
solutely nnd alone responsible for tho
reopening of the strike." This asser
tion was made today by Mlchncl Don
nelly, presldont of the Butchers' union.
"When wo signed thc agreement to
abrogate the strike," he continued, "It
was understood to be a caso of give and
take. The agreement wno not what I
wanted, but il was an agreement and I
thought it could be so handled ns to
bring results that would be fair to both
sides and no honest man Wants any
thing better. Therefore, when I left the
conference I felt some degree of happi
ness. Had Ho Kept Still.
"But I had no sooner reached the
street than I met n crowd of news
papermen and one of them showed me a
statement written by Edward Tilden,
declaring that the packers had gained
all the advantage. The reporters aoked
me about it. I waB that angry that I
gritted my teeth, nodded my head, said
'Amen,' and hurried away. If he had
kept still all would havo been well."

county for tho purposo of electing dol-:-gates
to the county convention, to be held
at Ephralm on tho 15th or this month, will

This plan was adopted In order to mako
It inconvenient If not lmpo?slblo for poli
ticians of ono place to nttend and attempt
to lnlluence tho action of thc local pri
maries of any other place. A strong sen
timent has arisen against any direct ln
lluence from the outside In tho local pri
maries, and attempts ln this regard havo
proved an Injury not alono to tho party
as a whole, but also to tho cause of thc
persons attempting such Influence.
Tho action of thc county committee In
suggesting tho call of tho several precinct
primaries for the samo evening has met
with the approval of all the local organi
zations, and the rotiiilt Is that each place
ln thc county has on a spirited local fight,
and each candidate Is looking after his
lnteroets In his home town.
Considerable of an attompt ha3 been
mndo from the outsldo to make tho gu
bernatorial contest an Issue In the local
lights for office, but theso attempts hnvo
been unsuccessful, and whatever Is dono
now In that lino Is on the quiet.
Along with this attempt to Inject tho
gubernatorial contest Into the local lights,
the olfort has been made to press tho Sen
atorial fight and mako It a ruling Issue ln
the locnl canvass. So persistent have been
a number of local candidates for office
nnd other known Sutherland politicians
in this matter, that a very pro

Is now claimed for F. C. Jensen, who late
ly has openly declared hlmsolf to be In
favor of Senator Thomas Kearns for re
election to the United States Senate. Tho
action of Jensen In declaring for Kenrhs
Is said to have considerably Increased his
following, for It Is reportod thnt a great

been anti-Sutherland are now enthusiastic
A leading Republican of Mt. Pleasant ln
discussing the matter at Mantl a couplo
of days ago said that about two-thirds of
the Republicans were doubtless anti
Sutherland, but Jensen might not get that
proportion on account of other causes be
ing at work. This result has been brought
about largely by certain parties, thinking
to make the people generally declare for
Sutherland as well as for their particular
candidates, using tho campaign bluff that
you had better line up with our faction.
"Wo are the Smoot-Sutherland faction,
and we are going to control both county
and State conventions, nnd unless you Join
us nnd support our local candidates you
will bo treated as against Smoot or Suth
erland (these aro used Interchangeably),
and for Kearns. Y6u must choose be
tween our enmp and thc Kearns camp. '
But instead of this political bluff excit
ing the people and causing them to fall
over themselves to fall In line as directed,
It has had the opposite effect, and the re
sult is that this county seems very much
intluonced by the Kearns sentiment.
Tho local lights are on and wherever
incre Is nn attempt to force people Into
line by any outside issue, the result will
pe costly to thoso who attempt It, Judg
ing from the temper of the people.

TALKING THE GOVERNORSHIP.
Utah. County Republicans Have an
Special to The Tribune.
PROVO, Aug. 11. Tho past few days
have been hot ones for thc politicians
down this way. Considerable guessing
still continues as to the probable outcomo
of tho situation. The Gubernatorial con
test Ih ono that attracts most attention.
For a time It nppcarcd that Cutler was
tho only candidate in the Held. "I am
opposed to a third term proposition," said
a man who had heretofore been supposed
to bo for Wells. Notwithstanding tho
Wells crowd will likely receive somo sup
port. Hammond stock apparently Is
apparently gaining, and strong support
may be expected to come from certain
quarters If what 's often heard Is true.
There will be sonic fun at some of tho
primaries which will bo held soon
throughout tho county. And from what
Is heard on the side If things move in
their natural channel some of tho dele
gates will most likely be for Hammond
a'nd Wolls. It Is not?d through the press
thut tho local postmaster 13 doing somo
for tho advancement of Cutler In tho
south. DeMolsy was also out rounding
up support for the same gentleman.
Two conspicuous clippings were noted
In The Tribune a few days ago. which
shews a trend peculiar In this section.
The Ir3t noted was from Lohl, which
says In speaking of tho manner In w'llch
delegates are to be chosen In this quar
ter, "This year the delegates will bo
elected direct from the primaries and not
from the county. The result of this will
bo that whllo thc county Is undoubtedly
for Cutler. It will leavo tho friends of
Governor Wells free to vot for him."
And again; "No ono ln tho county com
mittee Intended this condlticn of nrfriir
to exist when they voted for the primary
plan, but theso are the conditions, never
theless, and Utah county today Is prob
ably as fertile a field as there Is In tho
State In which the severol candidates
may sow seed for the harvest that will
bereaped ln Salt Lako City on August
It is slated that on attempt will bo
made to havo tho delegates commit them
selves at a caucus which will be held be
fore thc State meet. Such an attempt
will be frustrated by the Hammond and
Wells friends, and as has been said be
fore Utah county will go to the Stato
convention unorganized. -f.
From tho presint viewpoint it appears
that Wolls and Hammond vIJJ socuro
enough votes to frustrnto any plan which
tends to Invoke the unit rule.
The other clipping referred to Is from
American Fork, which 13 substance states
that Glazier Is favorably considered In
that locality and closes with this dlsllnc
tlve declaration: "Mr. Glazier is ad
mired by many for tho stand he has taken
with tho reported Smoot-Cutler move "
While L3I1I says: "If It conies to a ques
I tlon as to whether Dixon or Glazier gets
tho prize coveted by each. It Is probable
that Utah county's strength will be given
to the aspirant ather than the present
p.ossessor of tho State treasurerslilp
Acaln It must be said there Is bitter
opposition to Glazier ln this county ho
will come nearer receiving tho entire sup
port of this county than any other asnlr
