Thursday was Welsh day in Salt Lake
? City and aspirants for honors, musical
1 and literary, assembled hero to lake part
Wj in the sreut Eisteddfod, conducted after
! the ancient fashion and with the true
I: Welsh spirit, as in the homo of tho de-
K scendants of Owen Glendwr himself. They
I camo from all parts of the slate and
E there were many from distant places as
E well from cities of the far northwest
and from tho cast, and even from old
L' Wales itself.
Doth sessions of the Eisteddfod, which
I was formally opened at 2 o'clock in tho
j afternoon, were tilled with music, and
I ilio audiences wcro charmed with the
r many beautiful numbers that wero given.
t TIic contests began early in the inorn-
Ins with preliminary trials by the tenors,
j sopranos and the violin soloists. In every
f contest tho number was reduced to three
contestants and the task of the musical
adjudicator was in many instances very
The first contest of tho afternoon was
i the soprano solo. Mr. Protheroe said j
that he had the greatest difficulty in re-
duclngr the contestants to the usual num
ber and finally compromised by select
ing flvo contestants and giving them tho
opportunity to sing before the audience.
In this afTatr Edna Evans was accorded
xtxa first prize and Lavlnia Poulton the
Denver carried off lirst prize In tho
contest for the ladles quartette contest,
and this in spile of the fact that Miss
Bertlo JJcrlln. the iirst soprano, had been
auffe'rlug from a severe cold. This or-
I i . ganlzatlon was composed of Miss Berlin,
u I Miss Ivy Matteson, Mrs. F. J. Houscley
and Mrs. 1. S. Cooper. The Salt Lake
mmrtette, which was a close second, was
composed of Mr. Henry Kirkman.Mrs.
Charles O. Vcnesp, 7i rs. Emma J. fcand-
tva and Mrs. Thomas Wise. Only one i
prizo was granted in this contest, how
ttver. although llio adjudication was so
close. , I
Competition Is Cloac. ;
I' In the male quartette contest the com- j
petition wos not so close, however, and .
rialt Lake won easily. This quartette Is ,
composed of Messrs. Moncarr. Christ. an- :
, aen, Burt and Richardson, and received
1 "the following adjudication:
"Good ensemble, tempo too slow, voices
. balance and blend well. Voices In perfect
accord as to pitch. Singing full ot clc
.' Ughtrul expressive effects. Part singing
clear and distinct, style excellent, fcchu
h bert quartette by far the best quartette.
The Salt Lake City band, under the di
rection of Professor Anton Pedcrson. won
the first prize for the band contest. Ac
cording to arrangements of officials or
the Eisteddfod, this band formed at tho
f head of Main street at noon and marched
down the street to Fourth South and back
again, playing the great Welsh air, 'Men
of Harlech." . t1 ,
The prizes were granteo tho wlnneis
of the afternoon session at tho opening
of the evenlnc session, and many com
ments were made by William Apmadoc
of Chicago, the conductor of the Eistedd
fod, who had charge as master of cere
monies, on the Interest displayed in the
The evening session opened with tha
. singing of the grand old Welsh hymn.
"Land of My Fathers," and tho audience,
which nearly filled the great tabernacle,
joined In the refrain with enthusiasm,
and made tho olace ring with "Hen
Wlid Fy Nhadau," and there wero many
Welshmen present who joined in the
chorus with remembrances of their
The events for the evening were the
', tenor solo, violin solo, minor choral con-
; test for mixed chorus of ilfty voices, and
t The contest for male chorus. In the first
S e'cnt, Salt Lake City carried off first
ft honors, through the ability of John Sum-
! merhavs, with Denver a close second in
Llewellyn Jones. In the violin solo con
Y ' t(2St the three contestants were so well
j matched that Dr. Protheroe, the adjudl-
f cator. expressed his difficulty in choosing
f between them. He also remarked on the
ftj jvleasure he had enjoyed at the perform-
e ancc. It was. Indeed, a charming event,
D and the familiar "Eleglc" by Ernst, the
V Spohr arrangement, appeared in all its
Prizes were finally granted to Morris
1 P. Andrews as the winner, and to Miss
I Roumanla Hair? and Edward P- Fltzpat-
-, rick as ties for second place. The accom-
I I nanim'ents for the solos were played by
P I Mrs. George E. Skellon, who was compli
mented by the adjudicator for the earn
L and judgment she displayed in her work.
F Only One Contestant,
r There was only one contestant for the
j minor choral contest. The Liberty Choral
society sang "How Sweet the Moonlight
. J Sleeps," by D. Emlyn Evans, as Dr. Pro-
i theroesald. with a good deal of spirit
I . and with sufficient ability to win the first
The male chorus contest was especially
,,' interesting because of the entry of tho
Orpheus club of this city and a specially
T , organized chorus under the direction of
i Evan Arthur. In the first number. Dr.
4,M Prothcroe's "Nocturne," unaccompanied,
m- ' the honors were so even that tha decl-
Brv slon was made on the second number,
ml Dudley Buck's "The Bugle Song." Tho
R,t Salt Lake Glee society exhibited here
: ' greater care arid tone quality, and was
( granted the first prize, with commenda-
I' ' tion by the adjudicator.
I I The feature of both sessions, of course,
1 i was the singing of the Welsh baritone,
David Evans, who camo here directly
h from his home In Wales to grace the oc-
f- casion. It has been stated that Mr. Ev-
fl nns came from Swansea, but he gave out
I. Thursday evening that this was Incor-
tt. , rect; that his present residence was Lon-
V f don, but that his home was Pontcrwyd,
j i Aberystwyth. However this mav be, ho
" sang beautifully at both the afternoon
1: v and evening sessions and delighted his
f-v audiences. As an encore In the evening
. f. he rendered "Annie Laurie" In a most
i charming manner and with a feeling that
m j; touched the hearts of his audience.
V One of the most beautiful events of the
H evening was the singing of tho public
R school children under the direction of
H Prof. William A. Wetzell, supervisor of
H music in the schools. In the "Song of
RJ Christmas," bv Evan Stephens, they dls-
K'.'i played careful training, and the young,
Kr ' iresh voices made an especially pleasing
I ifcature of the great concert. At the close
K Jf the singing both Mr. Stephens and Prof.
H . wetzell wero compelled to acknowledge
H ! the plaudits of the audience. The children
H f were. all presented with handsome medals.
H . mado In the form of a gilt wcrNl with the
H ' inscription In Welsh. "Wales forever,"
:. and with a ribbon attached bearing an in-
-scription commemorating the event.
B i Other Selections.
Bi ' .' Other selections were givn by the tab-
K . ernacle choir under the direction of Prof.
S:: Evan Stephens, which rendered the Sol-
A dlers Chorus from Gounod's "Faust" In
' a pleasing and spirited manner. As an
s' encoro they also gave two verses of the
"I ?ld hymn. "O My Father." adapted by
-1 Moody and Sankey from the old air.
P ,vr?t satisfaction was expressed In the
L I adjudications made by Dr. Protheroe. al

on the wondrous story of the west and
of the fact that in less than sixty 3ears
it had been transformed from tlio blue
of the wilderness to a laud peopled
with millions, its landscape covered
with cities, its flocks on every hillside,
its husbandry and its womanliood, and
queried: "Who would not bow down
to its mightiness?" Hp spoke of tho
subjugation of the Indian, the march
of progress and the patriotism of the
west, concluding with the famous clas
sic: "Lives there a man with soul so dead,
who never to himself has said, this is

satisfaction was expressed, however, at
the slowness with which the events were
carried on. and It Is thought that the con
tests should have followed each other
more closely without ko many lone
Hpeeches. Officials of the affair expressed
the Intention of expediting matters con
siderably at tho emutlng sessions.
In many circles Thursday night there
was a good deal of enthusiasm, and It
was given out lhat thore should be a
grand Welsh meeting called for Saturday
morning, at which not only would the
dominant spirit be Welsh, but the lan
guage an well, and there would also bo
many of tho grand old Welsh hymns sung.

Says Delegates to Carpenters
Convention Appreciate Cour- j
NOTHING BUT ROUTINE " '
Apprenticeship Matter Is the
Main Ono Which Remains
Thursday's session of tho fifteenth !
biennial convention of the "United i
Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners,
which has been held here for the past
two weeks, was devoted principally to
tho transaction of routino business. Tho
I committees on organization, appeals and
grievances and resolutions and laws pre
sented partial reports and the committee
on ritual finished its business. A reso
lution thanking tho Commercial club
and the local district council for the
courteous and splendid entertainment
which Lhe3' have accorded the delegates j
during their sta3' here, was presented
and passed with great enthusiasm.
Copies of this resolution will be framod
and presented to tho Commercial club
and the district council and tho rcsolu- ;
tion will be made a part of the official
records of the convention.
Frank Duffy general secretary of tho
brotherhood, said Thursday afternoon
that the convention Friday would be
occupied with the remainder of tho re
ports b3r committees on resolutions and
constitution nnd laws, and with the con
sideration of the apprenticeship matter
which has been in the hands of a spe
cial committee for the past three da3's
aud that tho convention would adjourn
for tho next two years b"3' 5 o'clock Fri
da3r afternoon. I'hc apprenticeship mat
ter is said to be (he principal affair to
be taken up and it is probablo that it
will occup3' considerable timo in dis
cussion. Officers Avo Pleased.
Officers of the brotherhood express j
tho greatest enthusiasm oyer tho man- i
nor in which the convention has been j
carried on and with tho results that
hive been obtained. Mr. Duffy said
that there had uever been a morc suc- j
cesiftil convention aud that business ,
had been carried forward with unusual
dispatch and tho best of feeling on the ,
part of the delegates. Ho was onthusi- j
astic ever tho manner in which T,ho ;
people here and especially tho Com- j
mcrcial club and the local entertainment
committee had treated all ihoso attend
ing the affair, and expressed the keenest
appreciation at the hospitalilj' exhibited
by the citizens of this city.
"You are going to have here a splen
did city," said Mr. Duffy, "and there
appears to bo a tremendous economic
growth going on. We feel that Salt
Lake Citj' has a great future and we
are glad that we can tell tho people
of the different sections from winch
v-c have come that Salt Lake City has
dove herself proud in the entertainment
accorded the delegates, and we propose
ta advertise this place to the utmost."
The Thursdaj session adjourned at 12
o'clock in order to permit the carrying
out of preparations for tho grand ban
quet; to be held in the evening.
FALLING OFF IS liif
IN SCHOOL ATTENDANCE
Fremont and Franklin Build
ings Believed to Be Affected
by Red Light Talk.
The attendance at tho Fremont and
the Franklin schools, half way between
which Is the proposed site for the red
light district, has fallen off considerably
over that of last year, and this lias led
to some speculation as to tho cause. Ono
of the reasons for the decrcaso In at
tendance Is given as the proposed removal
of the red light district from Its present
quarters to Boyd's court, between Fourth
and Fifth West streets, within two or
threo blocks of cither school.
The principals at the several schools,
at tho close of each school year, make a
record of the attendance, and this was
done at both tho Fremont and Franklin
schools at tho end of tho term last May.
Upon these figures was based an estimate
for the increased attendance anticipated
at the opening of schools tho following
school year. The attendance at the open
ing of schools this year did. not Increase
at these two buildings, as It was reason
able to expect, but fell off materially In
stead. It Is said that the proposal to transfer
tho red light district to the west side has
alarmed soveral families and caused them
to move to another part of the city with
their school children, and this is ono of
the causes for the marked decreaso in
the attendance at. the Fremont and
Franklin schools. Another reason is given
as tho encroachment of railroad and other
business Interests upon residence prop
erty in that particular part of tho city.

This is the way Hie Wasatch Wave
refers to an important political matter:
Xow that tho state and district con
ventions havo been held throughout
the state, the attention of the citizens
will turn to the most important of all,
because It seems nearer home the coun
ty convention. The people should bo
careful in selecting delegates to these
conventions, for at them men aro chosen
who are to administer our lognl affairs.
It Is well to bo patriotic and all that, and
1 take interest in the affairs of our na
tion and state, but after all, the affairs
of our own county come homo to us with
more frequency and greater force than
any others. In them wo are more di

the candidates of the respective political I
parties, but in the convention the choice
extends to every citizen in the county;
therefore, the convention Is the all-important
function that decides the all
important question of whether or not we
shall have competent and efficient offi
cers to administer the affairs of the
Upon surveying the delegates to the
Democratic county convention Wednes
day ono of them well known in the
councils of the party said: "T knew

are the ones who will vote the Ameri

present we would have carried that mo

state, and those who were there came
for tho express purpose of defeating
that motion. Taking everything into
consideration, the calling oil" of Jesse
Knight, the defeat of that resolution
and other magnificent things, the
Americans will carry this county by
