-when aroused in hie temper." After pro
cecdlng this far with the recital, Mrs.
j Keethler became hysterical and could not
1 longer talk coherently.
fl Where Tragedy Occurred.
The struggle and the shooting occurred
j In the door between tho kitchen and the

What Widowed Bride Says.
Euna Duvall, the widowed bride, was
H able to add nothing to the story told by
H hor mother, as she was not In tho room
H at the time. She said, however, that sho
j had never had any trouble with her stop-
H father and could not understand why ho
H suddenly became so frenzied as to tako
H her husband's life.
How Trouble Started.
H Violet, the fifteen-year-old daughter,
H wh"o Ik just recovering from an attack of
H typhoid fever, said: "The trouble started
B when he (Keethler) Insisted that I should
go to bed at 7 o'clock. I told him that I

Interests Joined Hands.
Twenty-eight years ago tho industrial,
agricultural and mining Interests of Utah
Joined hands and exhibited in proper
stylo tho many products of the State.
True, tho first fair was not an event of
great Importance on account of tho com
paratively small population of tho Terri
tory at that time, as well as tho poor
means of transportation that wcro then
at hand. Gradually, ns the Stato has
grown In population, as the ground hns
been placed under cultivation and na the
railroad facilities have increased, tho
Stato fairs have annually shown Utnh to
bo a grwat land of promise second to
none In the Western country, which Is re
garded as the richest and most fertile
portion of tho United States.
i A Crowning Event.
iTho present Stato fair Is the crowning
event In tho history of tho Industrial,
agricultural and mineral interests of tho
State. It surpasses all like efforts of the
officials of tho fair association. A glanco
at tho innumerable exhibits proves to the
most casual observer that tho resources
of Utah are practically boundless. An
especial feature of tho exhibition is tho
demonstration of what can bo accom
plished on non-lrrlgaled and Irrigated

appreciation for the money appropriated
by tho Legislature for tho fair and re
marked that the interest, shown by the
people of Utah upon this occasion had
made his task, as well ns thoso of his
fellow-officials, exceedingly pleasant, and
that It had served as an Inspiration to
him In nttemptlng to mako tho present
fair the greatest that has ever been
held. In concluding, he paid a tribute to
Gov. Cutler for tho great Interest evi
denced by the latter In the fair. At the
close of his remarks, President McDonald
turned the keys of the building over to
Gov. Cutler Responds.
Tho Chief Executive of the Stato re

. congratulations- to the fair association
officials for their great work, as well as

hibitors for tho interest displayed by
them. The speech-making was brought
to a close by a brief address by John R.

Upon the conclusion of the oponlng cere

There wore enough political rumors fly

the most particular mind. The Repub

that has not named Its city ticket. Inter

It was ascertained from various sources
that a Republican slato has been formu
lated which Will go through the conven

of tho candidates shelved. Word has
gono out from tho fountain head of Re
publican power, so It is said, to tho ef
fect that the following-named candidates
must be the cholco of tho convention: For
Mayor, William J. Lynch; City Attorney,
Y. R. Hutchinson; Recorder, C. S. Buck

Chief Lynch will receive the nomination
by acclamation unless a stronger man Is

Younger Mormons Aroused.
Charles Cottrell was ohlfted from the
rao for Recorder to Auditor between

relied on, however, aro statements mndo
by Mormon Republicans which not only
bear out the slato rumor, but actually
gavo It a start. It is becoming moro ap

Tho members of the Republican party
generally have tho blind staggers; they
are not groping around In the dark: they
arc, as has been aptly said, fairly blinded
by tho brilliant light that tho great start
of the American party has shed all over
tho city. Under ordinary circumstances
the fight will bo between Thompson and
Morris. This has been acknowledged on
nearly all sides. The Republican party
has lost so many of its prominent lend
ers nnd so much of its prestige that it
can hardlv Iiodo for success.
Church Must Defeat Thompson.
Mormons wero tho first to realize this
fact. Many aro making wagers that the
vote cast for Lynch, should he be noml
nntaed. will bo fully E0 per cent less than
tho next highest man In the race. Con
sequently It has becomo apparent to tho
leaders belonging to the church that tho
only way to defeat Thompson, In their
Judgment, Is to lose Interest In tho Re
publican nominee and come over to the
assistance of Morris with their votes and
consciences wrapped up In a compact
Gentiles Must Unite.
One of the oldest Republicans In the
city said yesterday: "I bcllove that the
only way to defeat Morris and the church
Is for the Gentiles to Bupport tho Gentllo
cnndldnte, Ezra Thompson; I am going
to do so. There is no reason In the world
why Gentiles should bo led up to the vot
ing booth by a Mormon hand to voto for
a ticket or tickets which the church has
Church Grip on Parties.
"The candidates aro selected by tho
leaders of the church, some to act as a
sop. for the Gentllo element without
chance for election, and the others for
the purpose of electing them and per
petuating tho death grip the church has
on political Utnh and Salt Lake. From
what I can hear, tho rank and tile of the
Mormons will bo on tho sldo of Morris
by election day. but they will stand by a
Mormon Republican on tho ticket Instead
of a Gentile Democrat."
Programme as to Lynch.
Chief Lynch Is not looked upon as a
strong man politically. Knowing ones
freely express the opinion thnt tho Re
publicans will nominate him, nat him on
the back and tell him to go In and win
out. Tho Chief has tho distinction of be
ing nn opponent against one msn who
appointed him to the position as Chief of
Police, and against another who sus
tained him In that capacity.
But 6no thing Is so apparent that every
one Is noticing It, and that Is the Demo
crats have taken a new lease on life,
and claim to have recovered from their
sadness of the past two weeks. While
they know nothing about tho situation
definitely, they havo put up tho lightning
rods and aro patiently waiting for a

BISHOP CUT "WAGES.
Hold Poor Laboring Man Down to
Under tho administration of Mayor
Clark a member of tho Mormon church
applied to tho Street Supervisor, who Is
a bishop in tho church, for employment
Tho man staled that he was very much
in need of tho work becauwc of his poor
circumstances and having a couplo of
motherless children to care for. PTo ob
tained the employment, but tho bishop
paid him CO cents a day less than the
wage allowed by tho Council. This man
Kays that the bishop atid Street Super
visor was the same person who has occu
pied tho two positions under the Smlth
Morrls administration, nnd ho Is now
wondering If that sort of people nro to bo
perpetuated In office. Tho only excuso
that the bishon and Street SupervlEor
gnvo for tho enforced reduction of wages
was that tho man had admitted that ho
was poor and needed the work.
