Crowds continue to flow through the
fair grounds, seemingly without cessa
tion. Yesterday's attendance numbered
some 7000, which, with the attendance
on Monday, makes a total o 18,000, al
lowing that a great number may not
have visited twice, although the ex
hibits are attractive enough In many
cases to merit a second visit.
The famous diving horses did their
net at 1.30 o'clock yesterday afternoon,
and also In the evening, the feat being
all that was claimed for it. This feature
is a great attraction for the visitors,
the horses showing an Intelligence al
Ill Arid Lands Display.
I The display of the Experiment station
H is a striking Illustration of what can be
done with the arid land9 of Utah, the
la walls being lined with grains and
JO grasses grown without Irrigation
"Which means the most to Utah?" is
W the legend above a platform on which is
tj arranged the grain from arid lands,
with sage-brush on either side. On the
H table are gTeat bottles of water to lllus-
trate how much water Is required
to produce one ounce of wheat and the
I fact lhat twice as much water as Is
I needed Is used annually for the produc
P tlon of grain, Is forcibly Illustrated In
I the same way. The estimations made
! in the little booklet to be obtained here,
I are not only Interesting, but astonlsh
jj The display made by Hewlett Bros,
is one of the best, with Its pyramid of
cans, under which a train of cars runs
continuously. The honey exhibited by
John H, Black Is tempting in arrange
ment and color, the placing of electric
lights behind a beehive of jars of honey
being responsible for this effect.
Fine Work of Artists.
The needle work exhibit Is complete,
and although the masculine eye does
I not nttempt to cypher its intricacies,
I no woman passes the work without ex-
pres?sIons of admiration. As for the
works In art, some of them are cer
i talnly gems. Beside the pictures are
1 the paintings on china, which It would
S not b rash to say cannot be excelled.
The fish, the chickens and the swine
C all come In for their share of attention,
jj and you are made hungry only to look
at the tables of delicious fruit.
Exhibit of New Industry.
I A notable exhibit In the manufac
I turles building is that of the Utah Fire
Clay company. This Is the first time
I the new company has beeen nrenared to
IUD show its manufactured articles, but the
m result Is most encouraging to its pro-
ifg moters. The display is well arranged
and shows all the fire clay articles made
ffl by the company, including crucibles
w and assayers' goods, for which the com-
H pany Is becoming famous. Heretofore
m these articles were Imported, but the
ljj company a few days ago made a con-
9j tract -with the American Smelting &
jl Refining company to supply It with all
m this class of gfoods, which means a large
HI output annually.

SALT LAKE THEATER Florcnco Rob
erts, In "Marta of tho Lowlands," a dra
ma from the Spanish of Angel Gulmcra,
In three acts.
In this play of Spain there aro two
characters above reproach. Ono Is that
of a little girl, artless and altogether lov
able. The other Is a strong young shep
hord, simple, Inoxperlenced, pure of heart
The others know too much of wickedness,
and range from those who do evil, to
thoso who like to talk about It.
The play Itsolf Is one of great strength,
calling often for the display of lntcnso
feeling, but It has scones that approach
tho border lino. They arc glvon, to bo
sure, with all tho delicacy possible, and
thcatcr-goors have been witnessing plays
of this nature so long that they aro
doubtless ablo to overlook tho grossncss
of suggestion In admiration for tho art
of tho playwright and the players. And
If ono Rhould any that ho hoped Florence
"Roberts would como to us onco In a play
In which commandment-breaking was not
an essential thing. It would probably bo
sold In her behalf that the dramas she Is
appearing In afford tho opportunities for
emotional acting that audiences want to
seo. And while In each there Is tho do
celved woman and tho deceiving man,
there is often, too, tho triumph of good
ness that appeals so strongly to an audi
ence. And if In tho foiling of the villain
It Is nocessary to kill him, as In this play,
Is there not In the demonstration over his
taking off much to cheer tho hearts of
thoso who like to see people earnestly in
favor of morality?
In a most difficult and rather unique
character, that of the shophord whoso Hfo
had been close to nature, nobart Bos
worth was equal to Its demands. Mr. Bos
worth played this part of Mancllch In Mrs.
Flake's production In New York last year,
and lias the advantago of tho experienco
thore gained. But he also has tho advan
tago of a physique that gives to tho char
acter the appearance of power that be
longs to it. And as a child of the moun
ting, tender of heart and strong of arm,
deceived and tortured, revengeful and for
giving, Mr. Bosworth was throughout ef
fective. Miss Roborts manifested the varied suf
fering and changes of feeling which char
acters like this ono of Marta require her
to display, with, her usual power. Lucius
Henderson appeared In strange guise. Ho
came not as the noble lover this tlmo, but
as tho bad man of the play, tho wickod
Spaniard. You could hardly bellex'e It of
him. But he whs thcro with nil the wick
edness required of a villain who causes
the marriage of a girl he has dishonored
to an unsophisticated youth, In order that
he himself might marry a woman of
wealth, Ollle Cooper, as tho sweet little
girl, was remarkably clover.
"Marta of the LowlandB" will bo pre
sented at tho Salt Lake Theater tonlcht,
Friday night and Saturday afternoon,

Miss Myrtle Gwinn Meets Instant
Death on Street in Kan
KANSAS CITY, Oct. C Miss Myrtlo
Gwinn, aged 20 years, a student In a
local business college, was struck and
killed here today on Main street by a
heavy stone coping that fell from a
high building. Her mother, Mrs. C.
H. Thoren, lives at Salt Lake City and
a sister at Seattle, Wash.
Mrs. Carl Thoren, mother of tho
unfortunate girl, runs the Clayton
rooming house at 214& Slate street.
Sho received a message from Kansas
City yesterday afternoon stating that
her daughter had been killed by a live
wire that fell from a building.
The discrepancy in the two messages
regarding the manner in which Miss
Gwinn met her death was commented
on, and It Is supposed that the mes
sage to the mother was sent In that
manner In order that she might not
know that her daughtor had been muti
lated. Mrs. Thoren made preparations to go
to Kansas City last night, but about 6
o'clock received a message from her
former husband, Mr. Gwinn, at Hat
ton, AVash., stating- that he had ordered
the body' sent there, and she gave up
her contemplated trip.
Miss Gwinn was Just 19 years old,
and completed a course In a Kansas

CHANGES OF TWENTY YEARS
Visitor Describes Salt Lake as It Ap
peared to Him in 1880.
After an absence of more than
twenty-four years, T. O. H. Bogalsky of
Los Angeles, Cal., returned to Salt Lake
last night, and is loud In his praises of
"I left hero when there were no paved
streets and no electric cars," said Mr.
Bogalsky. "I lived hero from 187S until
July, 1880, when I left and went to
Mexico. From there I went to Arizona,
and in 1S89 I went to Los Angeles. In
1S97 I sold out and went to the Philip
pines. "When I was here there was a street
car line, with one street car, drawn by
a team of mules and driven by a man
named Dunn. This ran out to Fort
Douglas. There was a stone fence
around President Taylor's house, and
cows were pastured In the streets. The
Cllft House was at the edge of town,
and the business streets of the town
w6re Main and South Temple. There
wero very few houses beyond Main
streeet at that time.
"Gen. Smith was In command at Fort
Douglas, and had the Fourteenth regi
ment under him.
"From what I have seen of your city
now I think it is the most wonderful
city In the world. I. have visited many,
but the broad, well-paved streets and
the method of placing the trolley poles
In the middle of the streets should com
mend itself to every one."

Insult to Respectable
Ardent Supporters of Roose
velt and Fairbanks Re
moved as Registrars.
With No Excuso but That They De
cline to Support tho Candidates
Named by Smoot Crowd.
County Chairman J. U. Eldredgo of the
SmooUzod Republican commltteo of Salt
Lako county and candidate for tho Coun
ty Clerkship, has brought down on his
head a storm of criticism that promises
to make for him and his commltteo much
trouble from now on.
This Is tho thing that has brought It
Rudolph AlTf and Frank Jordan, well
known and staunch supporters of Roose
velt and Fairbanks, wero appointed reg
istrars for tho Sixth and Twenty-second
olectlon districts, respectively. They woro
appointed on recommendation of Chairman
Eldredgo several weeks ago. The law
which authorizes the appointment of reg
istry officers provides that they bo mem
bers of tho party polling tho highest voto
for Congress at tho preceding election.
Tho County Commissioners make tho ap
pointments on recommendation of tho Re
publican county chairman.
Tho qualifications of Alff and Jordan
wero passed on and they wero considered
fully compotent. Thoy are honest,
But It came to tho cars of County Chair
man Eldredgo that Alff and Jordan had
concluded to support the American party
candidates for State and county offices,
because thoy do not approve of the meth
ods used by tho priesthood In tho so
called Republican local conventions.
They are both ardent Republicans and
supporters of tho President.
Alff fought for tho flag ho wears on his
lapel through somo of tho bloodiest battles
of the Rebellion. His Republicanism Is
second naturo to him. And no man can
question tho Republicanism of Frank Jor
dan. IIo Is ovory Inch an American, his
friends say, and an honorable citizen.
Chairman Eldredgo. says, however, these
men are not Republicans that they have
Joined as ho puts it, the "so-called. Ameri
can party," and he directed tho County
Commissioners to substitute the names of
C. C. Brown of tho Sixth and H. J. Don
son of tho Twenty-second for Alff and
This tho County Commissioners prompt
ly did, the change taking place Monday.
Commenting on this aat, a prominent
Republican said; "If Rudolph Alff is not
a Republican I would like to see tho color
of the hair of" a man 'Jodcy' Eldredgo
would consider a Republican. Why, that
grand old man was lighting for his party
and voting his party ticket years before
tho brash young county chairman over
heard of tho Republican party. To re
move him from that position could not
possibly havo been becauso It was feared
Rudolph Alff wculd abuse tho position,
If It wero possible to do so. It was done,
therofore, becauso Chairman Eldredgo
wants It understood that he challenges
the friends of the American party and
would have It understood that ho will
trust none of them.
"For one. I consider it not only an out
rage, but an Insult to tho mon who aro
comrades to tho old veteran. It Is tho ex
hibition of an Intolerant spirit such as. tho
Anderson-Calllster-Smoot combine have
beon engendering for years. And If tho

HER FIRST RIDE OH RAILWAY
An Event in Life of Mrs. Hlggins of
It was a strange world Into which
Mrs. S. G. Hlggins and son, Silas, thrust
themselves Tuesday night, and Its very
8trnngeneJ?s was responsible for a great
deal of timidity and Borne fear.
Mrs. Hlgglno, who la 56 years of age,
Is the wife of Dr. S. G. Hlggins, a
prosperous physician of St. George,
Washington county, Utah. Some weeks
ago i'he decided to visit her daughter
In Smithfleld, Utah, but delayed making
the Journey, as she had never traveled
on a railroad train, and was afraid of
the consequences and unknown terrors
of the trip.
She made up her mind Monday to
brave the Inventions of man, and was
fortunate in finding thnt Warren Cox,
also of St. George, was coming to Salt
Lake at the same time. Ho volunteered
to nernmnnni' her this far nml thv
started Tuesday evening.
Her Courage Failed.
At the railroad station in Modena,
where they drove to catch the train,
Mrs. HIggins's nerve failed, and she
would have returned to her home had
It not been for the pleading of her son,
who was anxious to ride behind one of
the towering Iron monBters. Tickets
were purchased and when the train
rolled Into the station the little party
boarded it. Mrs. Hlggins clinging1 close
to the arm of Mr. Cox.
When the train started Mrs. Hlggins
saw the station lights flitting past and
cried to Mr. Cox that another train
was pulling In. He told her that those
were the station lights, and that their
train was movl.ng and she gave a little
cry of fear, but soon sat erect in her
seat and began peering from the win
dows to see what she could of the flying
Prefers Horse and Buggy.
"It was the stopping and starting
that frightened me," said Mrs. Hlggins
yesterday afternoon. "I didn't mind the
running part, although I didn't see how
anything could go as fast as that en
gine did. Silas, my boy, liked it, and
thought it great fun, but I believe I
prefer a horse and bugfry. I am going
from here to Smithfleld alone, as Mr.
Cox stays here, but I guess I won't be
so scared again, bqt I'll be glad to got
back home safely."
While here Mrs. Hlggins saw her first
automobile, and exclaimed In wonder as
the machine flew by.
"They smell Just like my gasoline
stove." she said. "What Is it that makes
Automobiles the Limit.
When it was .explained to her that it
was the gasoline explosion In a small
engine, she remarked that srie had al
ways heard that the "stuff was danger
ous." and stated that no amount of
money could hire her to ride In a "thine
that was run by. explosions "
