fj : Local Pride,
in Order to Induce Weber
i Delegates to Carry Out
j His Wishes.
" I J Then, According to Report, tho Mayor
f !j it Will Say It Was a Part of His
l Original Plan.
Tcy Wm Glasmann baa a trick up hl3
I ' i; F sleevo by which ho expects to turn tho
I )! $ defeat of his forces ln tho Wobor county
, primaries into a victorj' for hlmaclf, nc
k ,1 1 1 cordlnp to ono of his ORden friends who
! ,, I was In the city for a few hours last nlsht.
1 I IK It la a clever bit of acting and it ro
' i, J mains to be seen whether tho Offdcn
I , Mayor can mako tho
' ' s Mayor Glnsmann turn. Glasraann was
Has badly worsted In the
., , n primaries. He did
i an Idea. not get a smell, on
r the face of tho ro
ll' turns. He was wiped up In nearly every
votlnp district and admitted In his news
I ', ' paper that his opponents had Just causo
' for rejoicing over their victory.
But Bill said this before ho had thought
. . I out a way out of tho wilderness. Now he
,1 Is taking a new tack. It Is worthy tho
wllv Mayor. The chief fault with his
(' plan Is that he did not keep his trick up
J ' his bIcovo until after tho convention and
' , not talk about it. But he talked to his
i friends, and his friends are feeling so
: good over the matter that they, too, arc
telling the people.
Glnsmann says ho was not defeated In
tho primaries. Here Is how he has rattled
It off to tho Descrot News: "Say, 1 see
:' J tho Salt Lake papers say that I was
, ; licked bv the Kcarns crowd. Well. I want
' M to tell you I wasn't licked, for tho very
' ( good reason that I was several hundred
i ) J miles away when tho licking was going
, 'J J on. .Besides, I have been away for tho
' '! pnst ton days. I have been In Idaho all
'it! of that time. I guess Lf I was licked l
,',l would know It. Don't you think so? Why.
I of course you do. Then you fellows down
,: f there ought to know that I can't be llckea
C ) that easy, anyway. Say, but the Joko Is
: I a good one. If 1 had boon home taking
It ' part in tno primaries, it. is uouuiiui u i
I , could have got a better lot of delegates
' 1 ' I Think of It! Thirty-ntno out of forty-flvo
i I delegates are my delegates, anyway, per-
. ! sonal friends of mine. That doesn't look
, so bad. does It? I don't think so. Yes,
f I ' ? thirty-nine out of forty-flve. That looks
'I. pretty good to William. If Senator Koarns
' ; can get any comfort out of that I hope
h he'll enjoy It to the limit, for I am on-
f p Joylnjr It here all right. Senator Kearns's
' .8 crowd licked tho Glasmann crowd, did It?
I j. Well, look at that Il3t. and don't forget
i thirty-nine out of forty-flve. That Is a
, I; 3 good game to play any day of tho year."
. ' 1 Now everyone will say, "That Is Just
, ; like Bill." He sees a way out of tho
, disaster suffered by his friends and ho has
I , t begun to claim a victory, believing events
i ; will sustain him.
I , j' I His Ogdcn friond tells about It In this
, ill I vfay:
' " "Yes. Bill Is about to turn a trick on
J ! j' .1 t tho othor fellows that Is ono of the best
I ..' f In the land. It Is this way," he declared.
.1 fi "Bill knows the delegation la packed
' II against him that hlB candidate for Gov-
ii ernor. Cutler, has but a few votes and
) Wells has about all of the others. Well.
! Bill knows that Weber county has not
'J :' been given her share of the Stato offices
' - iy In tho past and that Bob Moyes Is a
l , . ,;" popular fellow and should be put on the
, . !!- State ticket, Moyes and Bill nre good
1 . (' rriends and Bill sceH a way to help hlm-
. i ,5 self by boosting Moves.
"I i Ik "He knows that Snioot will try to got
' lj Moyes to agree to a trade whereby Moyca
i ( fl will be put on tho Cutler slate In ox-
' li change for the Wcbor delegation for Cut-
, !' ler. Fact Is, this matter has already been
. ! ', figured out. Smoot will wait until tho
i ' Ij Utah county primaries have been held
.iVs and then offer to Moyes tho llfty-four
' ,' ,ll votes of Utah county, all of the Salt Lako
' ff'li; Cutler votes and aa many other Cutler
, ; delegates as may be neceosary to con-
lull vlnce Moyes that he can be nominated,
f 'ill "Then Bill and Bob will call the Weber
t .fl delegation together and say: 'Do you
f-f want to nominate a Weber county man
, by sticking together, or follow your own
f I' j ; inclinations for Governor and dofent a
I ; home man?' You know what tho dele-
I I' xatlon will do. It mav not want to be
j 1 1 traded off, but noi n maf; will dare kick
, jj against a Weber county man who Is suro
L ! of nomination. The boys will say: 'Wo
j i would like to support Wells or Ilammond,
'' y A but we can't afford to go on record as
1 ( standing In tho way of the success of
t I : Weber county success. '
j "Bill knows this. He Is for Cutler bc-
' causo Kced Smoot Is for Cutler and be-
1 J, ; cause George Sutherland Is for Cutler. Ho
' j) will urge a combination througli Moyes's
; j men on tho delegation. Bccd, will pull his
'i 1 , brother-in-law off and will hold as a bait
;f ' to Weber county all of tho Cutler dele-
I ' . gates if necessary. Bill sees this. He be-
1 ., lleves It will pan out. If It does ho will
oay: I toid you. .didn't I? Thought they
r , : had me skinned! But they .voted as 1
j wanted 'em to. It was a good trick 1
l.l, played on thoso fellows who opposed me.
t , I They -put themselves just where I wanted
I !;f them.' "
, Ujvlt This la tho way Mayor Glasmann has It
'' figured out, accordlpg to his friend's
;L'i' atory. He will control Weber county for
I HlfJ Cutler, if ho can, by appealing to county
J ,f,;;J pride. He will accomplish by Indirection
. ' ViJ what he could not In the primaries,

State Chairman James H. Anderson
says he feels his position in regard to
tho appointment of temporary officers
of the Republican Stato convention has
been misunderstood. Ho says ho had
no Idea of appointing tho temporary of
ficers himself, but calculated on calling
the committee togothcr for that purpose.
iHe further declares
' Chairman Ahat tho letter ho

Anderson Defines AmB s0 much
His Position. comment, was mcre-
jly to obtain an ex
pression from tho committee as to Its
wishes concerning tho temporary offlcors.
On tho matter of tho chairman's pre
rogatives In such matters Chairman An
derson lias authorized tho following
"Tlicro was really no excuse for Mr.
Metoer's letter. His Intimation of ulter
ior motives In appointing tho temporary
organization Is so unbecoming that I will
not deign to reply to 1U So far as the
annolntmonts aro concerned. I was criti
cized by several committeemen nnd other
tho last meeting for having permitted the
matter to come before the committee at
all. They said my action was Instituting
a dangerous precedent, contrary to es
tablished custom In State and National
Republican politics; that It was the pre
rogative of tho Stato chairman to name
the temporary organization. They pointed
out that I was the first chairman who
had ever referred the matter to the Stato
committee. As tho subject had been up
on my suggestion to th? State committee,
which did not transact it at tho meeting
of July 9, I consulted former Stato chair
men, and they informed mo It
was the business of the Stato chair
man and executlvo committee to malte
tho selections, lhat the State commlttoo
never had been called on to do It before
my time. I found tho precedents all
that way, both In this State and with tho
National Republican committee, and so
informed the members of the committee,
but made no suggestion of any change of
purpose on my par. A few members ob
jected to me taking action. Several oth
ers stated a willingness to have the for
mer procedure continued, and several
members Insisted that It was my right
and duty to go ahead and namo the tem
"Thero Is no auostion but that under
the proceduro In this and In other States,
as well as In the National Republican
committee, tho State committee has not
named tho temporary organization, but
has upheld tho chairman's action In doing
so. As tho question has been raised,
however, it Is my purpose to let tho Stato
Committee pass on it. If the members
"of that body choose to throw down tho
established rule, now that tho prccen
donts and custom are before them, they
are going to have tho privilege'. Tho
temporary organization does not help or
hurt any candidate. It cannot bo a ma
chine for either effect. Tho convention
Itself Is In full control of the whole busi
ness. If tho temporary organization Ib
not suitable for permanent work, the
convention will name others. The method
' uniformly followed In Republican Stato
conventions here Is for each county dele
gallon to namo Its own member of each
committee. The temporary chairman ex-,
erclses no appointive power whatever in'
naming committees. The temporary or
ganization of a convention is composed
of persons selected to fill the respective
places capably and honorably. Under tho
established rule It is my right to namo
them for Use convention, but as there
have been objection and undignified ac
cusations, I shall ask tho State commit
ter to givo Its Judgment whether tho
selection is the State chairman's pre
rogative, or whether tho existing- rule
shown by the precedents shall bo broken

To the Cuf'lcr men It looks like Cutler.
To tho Governor's followers It looks like
Wells. And Hammond's friends say
Ilammond .occupies the place of vantage
and will bo nominated.
So there It Is "You pays yo' money, you
lakes yo' choice."
Tho Kurfaec drift In Salt Lako county
Is anti-Cutler. Tho undercurrent- Is Cut
ler. And the wary politicians ay tho
undercurrent Is the thing to keep one's
eye on In Utah politics. .
Cutler machinists began the last full
week's work assured that If they arc to
be victorious the vlc
Bnttle lory must bo won In
Rovnl Salt Lake City and
trZr n7. jcounty. It Is told in
Wow Ui. Hit camps of the en
temy that an extra
amount of lubricant had been apportioned
to tho workers for this week, or, in other
words, that the merchnnt hud concluded
to spend a few dollars In Salt Lake rather
than 6co Hebor M. Wells carry away the
prize. Some things seem to Justify the
statement that Mr. Cutler Is not permit
ting many of his lieutenants to work foi
nothing, and this Is making the Wolla
crowd a bit nervous.
1 The result Is tliat admUle royal la" on In
Salt Lake, with Wells men nnd Cutlor
men busily arranging lo act their friends
to tho primaries and Hammond playing
for a position to flank both positions. Tho
maneuvering Is becoming very Interest

the warm friends of the Junior Senator.
That Senator Smoot's friends aro busily
calling attention to the fact that tho Sen

as Is Mr. Cutler. Is not doubted. This Ib
tho undercurrent which Cutler's frlcnda

said, "Well,, boys, wo will either chango
the day or the place for the N, G. U. en
campment." This gives the Black Hawk warriors
free access to the grounds which had
been engaged for both camps, the dato
for the encampment and tho reunion being
tho same. The Black Hawk veterans en
gaged the grounds April 1C. While honor
ing tho Black Hawk veterans, It Is to bo
hoped that Provo will not be deprived of
the N. G. U encampment.
Tho Tellurlde Power company's lino was
not struck or disabled during tho electric
storm which occurred Sunday night. The
report thai considerable damage was done
Is Incorrect. Tho disturbance caused by
the storm was at Intervals of short dura,
tlon. The power was Interrupted on the
main line so that Salt Lako could not get
the power at Intervals. Tho longest In
terval of eleven minutes was due to test
ing outlying llnej.
Tho Utah Light and Railway company
was taking power from the Tellurlde
company at the time of tho accident, and
because of the systems being connected
the disturbance naturally interfered with
the service temporarily. The storm was
unusually heavy near Ogdon. The report
that two transformers were burned out
Is Incorrect, tho company sustaining no
loss whatever. No apparatus belonging
to the company has been lost by lightning
during tho past yoar.

RIGHT SWING TO THE JAW.
Three Times Gardner Dropped tho
Man From California.
BUTTE, Mont.. Aug. IC.-G-eorge Gard
ner last night defeated Jim Jeffords in tho
third round, knocking him out with a
right swing to the Jaw that laid tho
flesh opon and sent tho Callfornlan reel
ing and spinning to the floor. Jeffords
struggled to his feet and gamely mixed
it again with Gardner, who, with an
other swing, sent hlrn to the fioor again.
Jcfford3 for tho third tlmo regained his
feet and in a dazed manner attempted
to striko at Gardner, who calmly squared
off and landing again on his groggy op
ponent walloped him one that dropped
him llko a log. Jeffords lay llko ono dead
for sovcral moments and waa in his cor

Jeffords wn3 no match against tho
Lowell man's cleverness, Gardner re
peatedly Jabbing his left and right into
Jeffords' face. Jelfords would swing at
Gardner with terrific force, though tho
blows almost invariably would go wdli
or be ducked by Gardner. With his long
loft Gardner kept tantalizing Jeffords as

BABIES LOOT HOUSE.
Two Girls, Seven and Five Years Old,
SYRACUSE, N. Y., Aug. 15. Tho
home of Frederick M. Davy was looted
with such thoroughness that the police
believed export burglars had done it.
The real culprlt9, It Is asserted, were
Muriel Hulton, swven years old, and
her five-year-old sister, Artlmese. Every
room In the house gave evidence of a
careful search. Drawers had been
emptied and their contents picked over
and clothing was scattered ubout. De
tective William Dorner noticed that
most of the missing articles were of a
character that would attract children
rather than a grown person. Dolls,
rocking chairs, monej' and Jewelry were
taken. With this clew he traced the
articles to the I-Iutlon home, and ho wont
there with the expectation of finding
that well grown boys- were the culprits.
Instead he found two little glrte, who
confessed taking the goods. They were
lectured and set free.

CHINA NEEDS MONEY.
Imperial' Edict Issued by the Dowager
WASHINGTON. Aug. 1C. Minister
Conger hns sent to tho State department
a copy of a remarkable Imporlal edict Is
sued by the Chinese Empress Dowager,
Tls Iln I, and promulgated by the Em
peror. Tho Empress, In strong language,
calls attention to the precarious flnanclal
condition of tho country, which makes it
difficult to provide funds for drilling the
troops. This condition Is said to require
the exercise of the strictest economy. The
"The habit of those between us and you
to surfeit themselves and spend monev
extravagantly has bocomo so strong and
systematic that now there Is no way it
can be broken. The useless expenditures
for these sinecures works a great Injury
on tho whole country."
Holding that the Imperial household
should take the first step In economv, the
Lmpress Dowager has given orders that
there must be no diversion of funds of the
revenue for household purposes, while the
number of officials in the household must
be reduced. All the yamens and princes
throughout tho empire are directed to
exercise similar economy and to rid
themselves of sinecure holders.
