Passes Up Letter of Treas
KICK 0NSM00T "MOUTH"
One Commissioner Said to Have
Said Things About Let-ler-Writer.
If the county commissioners took any
action at their meeting Mouda3' upon
County Treasurer Groesbeek 's letter
protesting against tho charging of the
$5725.50 that they paid tho Sinoot
"Month" for printing the delinquent
tax list, to his department, tho records
do not show it. Neither is tho letter
on file, which gives rise to tho perfect
ly safo assumption that it is snugly
iriding around in Chairman Clinton's in
side pocket. A still furthor sat'o as
sumption is that, it; will never bo mado
a part of the records.
:Ir. (Jroesbcek's protest is said to
have led 0110 of tho commissioners to
remark, with a decided show of asper
ity, coupled with some uneasinoss, that
' Groesbeek is a fool; The. clival has
got to bo charged to his department.
.It can't bn charged anywhere else."
In spite of the commissioner's asser
tion about Groesbock's mental status,
no application for his admission to tho
"bughouse" has been made yet. Groes
beek 's next step is to lay the matter
before tho county attorney, but
whether ho will do this or not is not
known. Tho county attorney says that
the matter has net been called to his
attention, but that if it is ho will cer
tainly investigate it.
Too Much Paid Out.
There is no doubt in anybodies mind,
not even the county commissioners',
that something like $3200 too much was
paid for the printing, oven at tho most
liberal view, and there is no uncertainty
as to the county attorney's duty. Tho
commissioners paid an exorbitant prico
for tho. printing; they simply mado the
'Mouth" a Now Year's gilt of $4500,
bv ordering tho printing without adver
tising for bids, clearly in violation of
the law, and it is tho county attorney's
dutv to bring suit against them and
their bondsmen to Tecover the excessive
amount illegall' Paid out.
In view of the county attorney's
statement that ho will look into the
matter close! v when it is officially pre
sented to him, it is believed that if
Groesbeek decides to carry it up to bis
office there will bo something doing.
Mickay has been ruling tho board of
county commissioners with an iron hand
over since he became identified with it,
using his offico mainly to pay off politi
cal debts, but in this iustauco even Ins
partisans feel that he has gono loo far,
and that a halt should be called. It is'
all right, thev say. fo settle political
debts," but it" is another thing to de
liberated and illegally hand over to the
organ of" the party a plump littlo pres
ent or $4500. even if the parly organ
was in sore financial straits. Partisans
of tho board do not refer to the present
as a present, but class it as a graft,'
and are not backward in declaring that
a halt should bo called.

Concern Soils Oranges Cheaply,
but Pox Contains Only
"You can Jopl some of the people all
of tho lime and all of 'the people soiuo
of tho timo; but you can't fool all of
I ho people all of tho time," applies to
day as much as when Abraham Lincoln
made tho stalome.nt years ago. The
Dexter Supply company of Long Beach,
Cal., might have adopted this as its
slogan in their nttempt to get-rieh-quick.
The concern advertised in two of the
morniug papers of this city that tn-,V
would ship vipo, .iuicy, luscious Cnli
forniti oranges, express prepaid, for
$2.G0 per box to anybody in this cily
or any other place, and guaranteed the
fruit to be "choice," in every particu
lar. Tho companv proposod to adver
tise its wares extensively, and was
about lo enter into advertising con
tracts with other local papers, when
their bluff was called.
How manv Salt Lake pe.oplo "bit'
at the advertisement is not known, but
it is certain that when the postal au
thorities finish with tho matter in baud,
it will have been brought to light that,
pioro than ono was" "stung" by the
alleged California concern.
J. E. Galighcr, manager of the Utah
Mining Machinory and bupply company,
fell a victim to tho art of the California
parties. Noting tho advertisement, he
forwarded the money anil calmly
awaited his box of "ripe .juicy, lusci
ous California oranges." They came in
the courso of time, in a little wooden
box. each orango carefully wrapped and
packed, and tho address was perfectly
plain. Mr. Galighcr hnd expected a box
containing several dozen of the "ripe,
iuicy. luscious" fruit, but iustead, tho
box contained just an even dozen
oranges of the variety one would bo
! asked about -10 cents" for at a local
store, Mr. Galighcr counted out tho
oranges, reckoned tho cost, and found
littlo to wonder at: regarding tho "ex
press prepaid," for ho had given up
just 21 2-'. cents for each orange.
Tho matter was immediately brought
lo the attention of Postoffice Inspector
('. D. Lowe of this city, and in turn.
Mr. Lowe will refer it to the chief
of this district, who is located in Den
ver. Mr. Galigher is naturally some
what worked up over tho matter and
proposos to liavo the company pushed
to tho full limit of tho law.
It is pointed out that, the company
has dono nothing wrong iir one way, as
tho advertisement read: "California
Oranges. Ilipo, Juicy, Luscious. Wo
ship only choice fruits. We will ship
vou, by express, prepaid, ono box of
!NTavcl Oranges for $2.G0." In an or
dinary box of this fruit, there are gen
erally fifteen do7.cn oranges, but the
company makes no claim to send this
number, and docs not sav how much fruit
will be contained in a "box or what the
size of tlio box will be.
Imjted Slates District Attorney H. F.

tlio same as in justices' courts. Tn ."jus
tice of Iho peace courts, tho just-ieo,

This tho city is allowed lo do to tho
extent of one-half the amount obtained
out of state criminal cases, but this
docs not amount to anywhero near as
much as tho justico courts aro allowod
to retain as their remuneration for
handling the criminal cases. To Mr.

Not Bound to Accept.
K the state will not consent to this,
then the citv criminal court is not

only thing required is for tho nitdgo of
tho criminal division of tho city court,

to properly rcmuneralo tho city there

is probable that the county attorney
will bo consulted before auv action is
taken. Tho county is highly dissatis

that ihe county shall furnish a prosecu

County Attorney .lob P. Lyon thinks
that Ihe law should be amended so that

LICENSE COLLECTOR IS
AFTER LDAij AGENCIES
Those Who Do a "Salary" Busi
ness Must "Come Through"
License Collector Samitol I. Godman
is now turning his attention to the sal
ary loan agencies, for which it is nec
essary to pass a special ordinance to
collect the annual license from them.
"If these companies, numbering approx
imately ton, do not conic through pretty
soon they will find themselves facing
prosecution for violating Iho ordiuam-o I
in operating without a license," Mr.
Godman declared, Monday.
Under tho old ordinance it was held
in tho Third district court that tho city
could not collect a license from --loan
companies loaning money without re
quiring a pledgo of personal property
o secure the loan. This was decided by
District Court .ludgo Goorgo G. Arm
strong in tho caso of the city against
tho Star Loan company. Tho city coun
cil then look tho matter up aud passed
an ordinance defining salary loan agen
cies tho samo as any other loan com
pany, and providing for a similar li
cense, $100 a year. This ordinance was
passed February S, and approved by the
mayor Pobruary i), and took effect upon
Rut tho ten loan agencies covered by
this ordinance havo failed lo lako no
tice so ftir, Mr. Godman. says, and ho
proposes to mako them sit up and look
around. Only ono company has sent
a representative near tho license col
lector's ollicc, and this was to make
sonio inquiry about the ordinance and
not to lake out a license. Mr. Godman
says that if the companies do not come
in and pay the licenso required under
the new ordinance they will bo prose
cuted, and that soon. Virtually all the
other licensees have paid their license,
and tho failure of tho salary loan com
panies covered by the new ordiuaucc to
pay up leaves tho books in a bad. condition.

The conference in Mr. Peterson's of
fice Monday afternoon agreed upon four
bills, and tho various food industries
represented at tho meeting will do
everything in their power to aid tho
food commissioner in getting these
measures through tho legislature. To
this end a lobbying committee will be
formed from tho food industries lo at

Puro Pood Bureau.
One of tho proposed bills provides for
tbo creation of a stato pure food bu
reau of a membership of propably fif
teen, seven of whom arc to be selected
from tho several food industries, upon
recommendation from theso industries.
Tho governor will bo left free to exer

Providing for Labels.
A third measure decided on was that

There was a warm little fight over tho
model food bill, drafted after a pure
food law in fprco in South Dakota.
This measure is exceedingly stringent
and the manufacturers waged war upon
the clause requiring them to place tho
name of the real manufacturer upon,
each label and to show tho truo net
weight, count, volume or measure, as
the case may be, but they wero voted
down by the butchers and other mer
chants and tho bill recommended to the

WORK IS TO BE RUSHED
ON COMMERCIAL CLUB
That work on the new building for the
Commercial club will progress ns rapidly
as possible. Just as soon as the weaUiur
will permit, Is now assured from action
taken by the building committee of the
eub, of which Mayor Bransforri Is chair
man, at a meeting held Monday after
noon. Complete plans of the new building
were reviewed carefully in every detail
at this meeting and the arrangements
approved both Inside and outside. Bids
for the erection of the building will be
advertised in about a week. These
bids will cover the construction of the
entire building, since it Is desired that
the entire structure shall be completed
by one firm and that the details shall not
bo let to different concerns.
It was shown at the meeting Monday
that the payments of subscriptions to'
tho building fund were being received l;i
a satisfactory manner, and that over SO
per cent of the entire amount originally
subscribed hnd boen paid In. As the
terms of tho sale of bonds for the now
building do not require the complete pay
nfent of the subscriptions until Septem
ber 1, this showing Is regarded an excellent.
