t THE SALT LAKE TRIBUNE, FRIDAY MORNING-, FEBRUARY 8, 1907.
fMill Creek Power Company Will
Add Its Quota of Chained
ONCE LITTLE PLANT
READY FOR BUSINESS
Will Furnish Power for Brick"
Plant and for Lighting
Within tho next week or ten days
isnothor concern, the Mill Creek Power
icompany, will be adding its quota of
chained lightning to that which is now
turning the factory wheels of this city,
and In addition will furnish light for
the city of Murray at night after the
'closo of tho work in the factories. Yes
terday, for tho first, time, the water was
.released from the fcod pipe and given
inn opportunity to set tho machinery
iin motion. But. boforo turning it against
tho cups of the heavy wheel the water
was released from tho pipe and allowed
to sweep down the canj-on. The stream,
tabout six inches in diameter, shot,
down tho creok bed for a distanco of
onany rods, where it dashed against
'tho rocks and was converted into a
onist which was carried down the can
yon several hundred feet.
Tho machiuery test proved entirely
F.itisfactory and no trouble is antici
pated after tho permanent, work of tho
(plant begins. Some of tho minor parts
of the machinory still remain to .bo
installed, howover, and it will require
jporhaps a week to rcgulato all of the
parts, for every precaution is being
taken to provide against future break
downs and delays. It must be remem
bered that when the plant once begins
to furnish power to consumers it will
"be kept, in operation day and night.
The plant is located in Mill Creek
canyon, about four miles from its
imoiith, and is nearer Salt Lake City
than anv other water-power electric
plant. The dimensions of the building,
which is of brick construction, are 2
by 42 feet. Its machinery is of the lat
est approved pattern, its'principal com
ponents being an Abner Doblo water
wheel of the tangential impulse, high
pressure pattern and an alternating cur
rent generator capable of producing 300
ikilowats. These are united by direct
connection. The water wheel will devel
op about 350 horsepower.
Water is taken from the creok about
(two miles above the powerhouso and
is diverted through a twenty-two inch
.pipe, part of which is of redwood and
the remainder of steel. This line is car
ried to a point on tho mountain sido
jicar tho building, from which it de
Fccnds almost perpendicularly into the
Tiower plant with a drop of GOT feet.
3n tho near future another line will be
completed to divert the water from
Porter's canyon, a tributary stream on
the south. "This will necessitate the
installation of another water wheel,
fwhich will also be connected directly
with the generator and will furnish,
about. 75 hoursepower.
Tho ontire supply of electricity has
already been coutractcd for. During
the. day it will be utilized by tho Salt
Xake Pressed Brick company to operate
the machinery at its plant near the
Eouthwcst boundary of the city, and
nt night it will De delivered to the
Progress company for lighting Murra'.
Tho lines to ooth of these places have
"been completed and are ready for opera
tion. This system is also constructed
go that, it can be connected with an
other system now in this county on
Fhort notice in case of emergency. To
facilitate transmission three heavy
transformers have been installed at the
main station and a transformer house
las been established at the brick
The company's emergencies have not
been limited, however, to this plant, for
the pipeline had not yet been laid when
the workmen began grading for an
other station at the mouth of the can
yon, where it will be again used for
generating power. Work on the site
of tho plant will begin in the near fu
ture and according to plans the en
terprise is to bo oven more pretentious
than the one which is now nearing com
pletion. The pipe in this instance will
nave a diameter of thirty inches and
the water will have a fail of approxi
mately 1000 feet.. The aggregate
length of the pipelines, when all arc
completed, will be nioro than eight
Among those who were present when
the machinery was tested yesterday
were: M. M. Miller, president of the
ompany; David B. Bnnton, vico-presi-ient
and general manager, who super- I

I TALKS TO STUDENTS
Prominent Violinist Delivers Brief Ad
dress to Highschool Students.
Karl Riedelsbereer, the violinist, ap
jeared at the Highschool yostcrday
nomine and delivtred a lecture to an
issembiage of the -junior and senior
(lasses. The, lecture was held' in tho
ecture room in the Science building at
Iho Highschool, and was attended by
Ibout 400 students.
The lecturer gave a talk on the sub
'ect of music. When he finished it was
ivident that hr had broadened the yiewg
if the students on the subject. Mr,
Jiedelsbergcr said there are three kinds
if music, namely, that which effects the
ntellcct, that which effects the heart
ind that which effects the feet. The
Irst kind is the folk song, the second
he patriotic song and the third rag
ime. He intimated that the rag-time
! s much more prevalent in America than
n German-. The Germans have a groat
r appreciation of music than do the
Americans. Another statement was
hat music has in it a great many things
hat one who had not studied it would
,ot suspect. He says that it includes
aathematics, physics and n knowledge
f at least seven languages. He de
I lares that the music systom which is
I ollowed in American schools is very
I Isborate and far surpasses that in
H Icrman schools. The songs of Ger-
II iany are, though, of a higher class

HOUSES MAROONED IN
SOUTHWEST OF CITY
Rain and Melting Snows Bring
Flood; Jordan Threatens
About two oity blocks in the south
western portion "of tho city are par
tially submerged by water, tho result
of the rains and "the melting of the
snow. The portion most affected is tho
nortli half of tho block between Sev
enth and Eighth South streets and
Fourth and Fifth West and the south
half of the opposite block.
. A number of residences are prac
tically marooned, but the water is
scarcely a foot deep and is rapidly sub
siding. Improvised bridges have boon
thrown over the waters from the en
trance to the residences to the street,
and in this manner the householders
make their egress and ingress. The
choking of a culvert under t ho Kio
Grando tracks, thus backing up the
water, is partly responsible for tho
flooding on the north side of Seventh
On Seventh West street, just north
of the bridge across the Jordan on tho
Poplar Grovo line, the river is threat
ening the banlc at the rear of a num
ber of residences, and should tho waters
continue to rise the bank may bo un
dermined and a number of outhouses
will go down the stream. The river at
this point makes a sharp turn east, giv
ing it considerable impetus against the
east bank, but in the event of t he flood
subsiding, which seems likely, all dan
ger will bo passed.

SOI LIS HI
Harriman System Is Cleared;
Holier and Park City
STILL FIGHTING SNOW
IN THE CANYONS
Scarcity of Coal Imperiled All
Traffic on the Harri
On some of tho local railroads thcro
was considerable improvement in tho
flood and blockado situation Wednes
day; on others there was no change.
Tho latter npplies to tho Hcbcr and
Park City branches of the Rio Grande.
No trains will .bo able to make Iho jour
ney through Provo canyon this week;
it is hoped that, tho S:lf a. m. train
to Park City will be able to make tho
iourncy to Iho camp this morning.
There was no communication with tho
Park via tho Rio Grando Wednesday,
there has been none since Monday. The
Gould road carries the mail, so tho peo
ple of tho mining town and also of
llebor and other towns on tho road have
been without any mail matter sinco
.Monday. Parley's canyon is virtually
a mass of snow. Thercwerc snowslides
at Barclay and Altus and t he track on
tho summit is also buried under a mass
of snow and debrin. ft, is hoped that
tho lino will be opened today and un
less there aro fresh slides this? will bo
accomplished. The Union Pacific route
via Kcho to Park City is open.
Tho clearing of the Union Pacific lino
in Weber canyon relieved tho traffic
congestion and" tho situation is being
speedily cleaned up. Ninety carloads
or company coal wero brought to tho
Salt Lake 'division Tuesday night and
Wednesday morning. The coal was ur
gently needed as the store of fuel was
all but exhausted. So serious had tho
situation .became bocauso of tho lack
of fuel, freight traffic west of Ogden
on tho Southern Pacific had to bo aban
doned and for a time mail and passen
ger trains wore threatened with sus
pension. On Monday and Tuosday sev
eral cars of commercial coal for Ne
vada consumers wero confiscated at
Winnemucca and this saved tho pnsson
ger trains, othcrwiso thoir engines
would havo died and train movements
would havo ceased.
No commercial coal came to Salt
Lake Wednesday from tho Wyoming
mines but thcro 'will be a large supply
today, unless accidents happen, feomo
of the dealers still havo coul in their
yards notwithstanding tho shortage in
shipments. Tho greatest difficulty to
day is to get the coal hauled by trains.
The thaw lias rendered the streets in
some parts of tho city in tho west and
northwest especially inJan almost im
pnssable condition, and this greatly re
tards the work of the teamsters. Tho
improvement of these thoroughfares
would help tho general situation.
Much water is reported between Salt
Lako and Ogden and near both the Rio
Grando and Oregon Short Lino tracks
but so far no dnmago lias been done.
Tho Southern Pacific is also reported
as still clear but no effort Is being
mndc to keep schedule time on account
of the danger from soft track.
CITRUS PR.TJIT BUSINESS.
P. S. Dutin Talks for J. C. Stubbs on
Rates in California.
LOS ANGELES, Feb. 0. Among the
railroad officials who have arrived in
this city to attend the sitting of the
Intcrsla'lo Commerce commisson tomor
row is J. C. Stubbs, traffic director of
the Harriman lines. The attention of
Mr. Stubbs was earl' directed to the
car shortage, of which tho citrus
growers complain. Mr. Stubbs last
night authorized the statement that, ho
had sent to all parts the country rush
orders for all available cars to assist
in handling the crop.
Regarding the citrus fruit business,
P. S. Dunn, attorney for the Harriman
lines, speaking for Mr. Stubbs said:
"There has never been an' contract
between the Santa Fe and the Southern
Pacific to fix ratCB on citrus fruits or
to divide or pool for that business. Tho
companies have not tried to 'scalp' tho
orange business from packing houses on
tho rails of tho oilier companies by ab
sorbing a team haul to tho tracks of
the other companies. This is not a nor
mal way of competing and if indulged
in would lead to robating. While tho
rates have been the samo, the compe
tition between tho Santa Fo and South
ern Pacific, has been along the lines
of getting the packing houses estab
lished upon thoir own Tines. Railroads
will confer, as is proper, upon 4 policy
including rato-making, but those two
ronds have not bound themselves by
contract to fix rates.
"The present chairman of the Inter
state Commerce commission is on record
in his public writings to tho effect that
where rates are subject to public regu
lations competing carriers should be
given reasonable freedom to agree upon
rates and to co-operate in the appoint
ment and division of business.
"In regard to the car shortage I can
say that it has been caused by the un
usual congestion of traffic on'all lines,
and investigations made by the commis
sioners have shown that the railroads
are doing all possible to alleviate this
"Major" Draie Here.
"Major" Drake, of Minidoka, has

WILLIS 3R0WH IS
Irrepressible and Unabashed
Juvenile Jurist Is After
Judge Willis Brown of Juvenile court
notoriety, who has been declared by
the Supreme Court, to be unfit to hold
his position, and who has refused to
resign at the request of the Juvenile
Court commission, is making a strenu
ous effort to hold his position, and
is frequenting the offices of members
of the prospective State Juvenile Court
commission which tho Legislature will
probably create. ,
The bill now pending beforo the
Legislature, which wns introduced part
v to legislnto Brown out oi ofiice,
provides, among other things, the in
cumbent shall be appointed by a
commission composed of the Governor,
the Attorney-General and tho btate
Superintendent of Public Instruction.
Brown has in his possession a letter
written by Judgo Ben R. Lindsay or
Denver, the host-known juvenilo judge
in tho country, in which Judgo Lind
say, without knowing any of the
facis concerning the red-hot roast
administered to Brown by the Supreme
Court, expresses the hopo that Brown
will be permitted to retain his position
here. Whilo Brown has nott yet
broached directly his candidacy if tho
new position is created, he has al
ready taken occasion to snow this lotler
to at least one member of the prospec
tive commission, and his friends are
said to be at work in hit) behalf. -
Brown's "nerve" in attempting to
hold onto his place in the face of the
Supreme Court decision and of public
sentiment, especially in view of the
fact that the pending bill was framed
as the means of getting rid of him, has
provoked amusement, not unminglcd
with admiration, among those who
know what he is doing. There is little
prospect, however, if the commission is
created, a single member of it. .will vote
to keep Brown in office, and it is gen
erally believed that he is wasting his

in a city of 75,000 the postofTlcc Is a first

burned on the arm by a gas flame and

that his arm is in a sling for a day or

manner. Roberts was soatod in front of

bottle, but. in so doing he placed his arm
over the gas burner. As lie hastily
jerked his arm away., ho pulled tho bot

the concentrated acid struck him in the
