PLAINING II BUILD
President Hewlett of M. & M.
Association Believes Enter

Construction of a gigantic auditorium
In Salt Jxike City, to bo larger even than
the Tabernacle and hold from 10.000 to 12,000
persons, Is the latest plan for making a
Greater Salt Lake under consideration
by the Manufacturers and Merchants' association.
President O. H. Hewlett of tho associa
tion Is enthusiastic over the project, be
ing firmly convinced that asldo from tho
social advantages to be gained by the
construction of such a building, tho ven
ture would be directly profitable finan
cially. Mr. Hewlett suggests that a com
mute of citizens should take up the ciues
tlon and carry the work forwnrd without
delay. It Is altogether probable that the
plan will be officially brought before the
Manufacturers and Merchants at an early
Natural Convention City.
It Is pointed out that Salt I,akc is by
reaaon of location and natural advantages
of scuiu-ry and climate a groat conven
tion city, that the only obstaclo that
stands in the way of bringing many bodies
of rsntlonnl importance hero Is tho lack
of ;in auditorium of size sufficient to ac
commodate a vast gathering. Should the
plan be cnrrled to success It is easy to
see that good results would follow.
RECEPTION TO DR. ELIOT
President American Unitarian Asso
ciation meets Old Friends.
The members of tho Salt Lake Uni
tarian association at L'nlty hall Tuesdnv
evening gave an Informnl and thoroughly
enjoyable reception to the Rev Dr. Sam
uel A. Eliot, the president of tho
American Unitarian association. Dr
Eliot was In this city for only twenty
four hours, being on his wav to the Pa
cific coast on an official trip In the inter
ests of the association.
In a short talk to the members Tues
day evening, Dr. Eliot spoke of the
organisation of the Salt Lake association,
the- subject being perfectly In keeping
with tho occasion, as ho himself was tho
organizer. He told of how ho conceived
tho Idea of forming a local association
when he was the pastor of the Denver
church. He came here, and the associa
tion was started most nusplclouslv, the
Rev. David Utter becoming the p'astor.
who. afterward, strangely enough, suc
ceeded Dr Eliot In Denver.
Dr. Eliot was pleased to note tho
giowth and successes of the local associa
tion, and pointed out how the achieve
ments of the past years should Inspire the
members to still greater victories. A very
enjoyable musical programme was given.
The Misses Lydla and Dlanca Tesch gave
a piano duet. Miss Nellie Mahan sang
a solo, and Mr. Arthur Moullon rendered
a violin solo, accompanied on tho piano
by Miss Blanca Tesch.
Refreshments and a talk over the olden
times closed the evening. Dr. Eliot will
leave today for San Francisco.
DATE AGAIN CHANGED
M. & 21. A. Southern Utah Excursion

At the reeiuest of the Murray Business

tho Manufacturers and Merchants, asso
ciation, at a meeting held Tuesday after
noon, changed the date of tho southern
Utah "Get acquainted excursion" from
Thursday, March 8, back to Wednesday.
March 7. as was originally proposed.
The members of the Murray organiza
tion aro greatly Interested In the cam
paign of the Manufacturers and Merch
ants' association, and accepted an In
vitation to send a largo representation
on the excursion to Ncphl. Upon the an
nouncement that tho date of the excur
sion had been changed from WednoGdny
March 7, to the following day, because of
the many meetings of fraternal and secret
organizations In this city on "Wednesday
night of each week, the business men qf

at the Murray smelters, and that they
would be unable to Join the excursion, un
less It was held on the date originally set.
As a result of the Murray protest, the
executive cominlttco of the Manufactur
ers and Merchants' association got to

great deliberation, agnlu changed tho
date of the trip back to Wednesday.

I THOMAS TRIES TO EVADE ISSUE I
In a morning contemporary Postmaster Thomas of the Salt Lake postofTlce emits a long wall about tho rank
mall service, In which he undertakes to placo the responsibility upon the railway mall service.
Is the railway mall service responsible for the fact that It requires forty-two hours to get a lcttor mailed In
the Salt Lake poslofllce delivered a dlstanco of five blocks?
Is the railway mail service responsible for tho failure to rocclvo the mall, a ton of It, when It does not reach
the railroad in time for the train?
Is the railway mall service or tho railroad company responsible for the lone; delays, tho failure oj the malls
to reach the Salt Luke postofllce after It reaches the railroad stations In this city?
If some ability were displayed, if some good hard horse sense were shown by the management of the Salt
Lake poatolllce In seeing- that the mall arriving in Salt Lnlie is Immediately taken to the postofTlce Instead of laying
In the depots for hours, as has been the case, would not Its delivery be expedited from tho Salt Lake ofTlce?
This rot about overworked Government employees Is all foi de rol. There Is not a newspaper man In Aic
country but what works longer nnd harder in one day than an average Government employee does In three. If he
did not lie would not hold his position.
The attempt of Postmaster Thomas to evade the Issue, to saddle the responsibility upon some one else of the
mismanagement of his office will not down.
Incompetency In so far as dealing with the public Is concerned has been the dominating feature of his adminis
tration. Delay, delay, delay In ihe delivery of mall has been the constant cry of the patrons and of this The
Tribune has ample evidence. ,
The Postofllce department spends vast sums of money to expedite the carrying of tho malls across the country.
Few railway postolllces ever go Into a terminal "stuck." The railway mall clerks are an efficient set of men. Men
who have come up from the ranks direct this great army and their work shows.
If executive ability like that shown In the railway mall service was exhibited In the postofTlce of Salt Lake the
complaints about rank service would soon cease.
Postmaster Thomas knows how to make out an ofTlcIal report. He has practiced upon them for tho many
years that he has pulled the teat of Uncle Sam's cow, but when It comes to dealing with matters In which the
public is directly Interested, and which they have a right to demand should be done, the Salt Lake postmaster Is
an absolute and complete failure. He does not know how. The public of Salt Lake should have better service
from the postolllce In this city.

BOARD OF EDUCATION
DECIDES UPON THEM
Cost of the Three Will Probably
Reach Sum of $100,
000. At the conclusion of a long-drawn-out
and extremely enervating discussion the
Board of Education decided at a meeting
held Tuesday evening to construct the
following buildings at an early dale:

Long Go-as-You-Pleaso Talk.
The decision to construct these build
ings was preceded, as heretofore men
tioned, by fully three hours of go-as-you-plcaso
talk The talk was started by a
report from the committee on buildings
and grounds, but which Informed the
board that If a twelve-room building
was erected In tho northwestern portion
of tho city It would cost approximately
$-10,000, and adding that ten lots had been
offered the committee free of cost. If
four adjoining lots were purchased by
the board for $700, giving tho board a
alto of JC0 by 137 feet. It also was re
ported that an eight-room building in the
Uintah school district would cost $30,000,
exclusive of the site, which would cost
High School Gymnasium.
In the matter of the proposed gymna
filuin nt the High school, th committee
passed up to the board tho estimates of
h il rm of architects as follows- 10x50
feet, two stories, with an assomblv hall
with a seating capacity of SCO, $22,000 ; 60x
120 feet, two storkt?. with an assembly
hall with a seating capacity of 1700,
$13,000. 05x130 feet, two stories, without
lecture hall, $00,000.
Cummings Precipitates Debate.
Cummlngs moved that the -lOxSO gym
nasium be the choice of the board, and
Henderson seconded the motion. Then
cvorj body talked.
Martin Opposed tho gym, on the ground
that school buildings, proper, were more
urgently needed than such a luxury. He
then pointed out that the gym and tho
school buildings In the southern, north
western and eouthwestern portions of tho
city would cost at least $118,000. while the
board had but $SS.000 In sight for build
ing purposes up to July 1, 1907.
Buildings Are Ordered.
Finally Judge Henderson moved that
the board build a ftym 60x100 feet In thu
clear, without an assembly room, and
that twelve-room buildings be erected In
the southern and northwestern portions
of tho city.
Glauquo moved to amend that an eight
room building bo constructed In tho Pop
lar Grove addition, but tho amendment
Only Two Dissenters.
The motion was put upon Henderson's
motion to build the gym and the twelve
room buildings and the motion prevailed
by tho following vote:
Yeas Cummlngs, Cheesman, Newman.
Thomas, Oberndorfer, Henderson and
Nays Martin and Glauciue 2.
Tho Committee on Buildings and
Grounds recommended as follows: That
tho contract for the tollct-room addition
at tho Washington school be awarded to
Ashton Bros., for $1920; that the contract
for the heating and plumbing at tho
Washington be awarded to HIgcon &
Rossltcr, for $2256: that tho $3550 bid of
"Nephl L. Morris ct al for the Irving
school property, be accepted and a deed
executed. The property It at Socond West
and Fourth North.
First Two Recommendations Adopted.
The flrBt two recommendations were
adopted without debate, but tho matter
of tho sale of the school property pre
cipitated a discussion, several members
being of tho opinion that the next six
months would witness an lncreaso In
value, nnd that the property should be
held. Moyle suggested that as there was
no American election In tho city this fall,
there was no particular reason for an
advance, but he evidently overlooked tho
fact that the Americans will carry the
county thin fall.
The matter finally went over until the
Resignations, Leave of Absence.
The Committee on Teachers and School
Work recommended as follows: That tho
resignation of Miss Lou Lowln be ac
cepted, to take effect February 23; that
Miss Mary L. Hong bo granted a Icavo of
absence until tho end of the present
achool year; that Samuel Doxey bo
granted a leave of absence until tho end

HAND IN THE GAME
But Load Was Too Heavy for
Commissioners and He
Was Let Out.
Back of tho resignation of "Food Re
former" William R. Jones, Jr., superin
tendent of the County Infirmary, thero is
another Interesting tale, or several tales,
to be exact.
The fact Is, according to most reliable
reports, that at least two of tho County
Commissioners have been up In tho nlr
on the Jones proposition since a Jury In
tho Third District court found that every
chargo made against Jones by The Trib
une was true, and that he had padded his
payrolls, fed the unfortunate Inmates of
the Institution on rotten mutton and "dog
meat" and did other things which branded
him as most unfit for the place which he
Were in a Dilemmn.
The Commissioners, however, wcro In a
dilemma; they hnd kept Jonos In the
place despite protests for a long period;
they were bound to him by ties not easy
to sever; they deeply loved him, to be ex
plicit, but. staring them In tho face, was
tho finding of the Jury. Thev wanted
Jones out, but they didn't havo the nerve
to tell him so, while Jones, who has
abundant nerve, declined to pry himself
loose from his fat Job until forced to.
Fussy Jiinmy in Game.
But thl3 Is not all "Fussy" Jim Ander
son, that "busy little man," who would
gladly take upon himself the responsibil
ity of directing the entire universe, didn't
want his bosom friend, Jones, thrown out
upon a cold nnd unfeeling world, where
he might have to work now and tnen,
and It Is said that he and his little bunch,
nsslatcd by tho Mormon church. In which
Jones Is a "bright and shining lijrht." de
manded of the Commissioners that Jones
be allowed to retain his place.
Other Interests Aroused.
At tho samo time, however, other In
terests were busy. Tho llttlo remnant of
the onca-powerful Republican party took
a hand In the proceedings and they gave
It out straight that they did not proposo
to add Jones to tho burden that Smoot
hud placed upon them Somo of the mem
bers of the party even went so far us to
suggest to Jones that common decency
demanded his Immediate retirement from
the infirmary. This failed to touch Jones
however, and he still clung tenaceously to
his little $125 per.
Laid Down the Law.
Finally, It Is said, tho Commissioners
were told that they would elthor have to
remove Jones or suffer the consequences
which It Is understood would have been
a public denunciation. It was then, so the
story goes, that Commissioner Mackay
went to Jones and told him ho would have
to resign The resignation followed, al
though Jones Is to be allowed to hang on
until April 1. "
