VICTIM OF MR

Commercial Club Is Asked to
Protest, but Is Not Like
ly to Do So.
Having taken steps to slop the exhi
bition of motion picture films depleting
the Mountain Meadows massacre. the
Commercial club had brought to its at- i
tcntlon yesterday several other insla.nc.es
of the manner In which big film makers
are seizing upon Utah topics. Tho club
Is asked to suppress these as well.
One of the exhibits is called "A Vic
tim of the Mormons." Tt purports to
show tho inner secrets of the Mormon
cnurch and how polygamous marriages
are performed. Several of the scenes are
laid Inside the Mormon temple and there
arc shown a number of alleged pictures
of the temple rooms, including that, of
the great baptismal font. This picture is
plainly a "faJcc." probably concocted from
tho photographs recently given wide cir
culation as a lesult of the Max Florence
episode, it shows the orange oxen that
support the baptismal font., lying down
Instead of standing up. and whereas tho
original oxen are of the long-horn va

This lllm is now being prepared and
will be released for circulation on all tho
big circuits February of this year. It
is the product of the Great Northern Film
company, with offices in Is'cw York. A
local theater is said to have a booking
for it this spring.
Joseph F. Calnc. secretary of tho Com
mercial club, said yesterday that Inas
much as this film dealt with a religious
subject wholly It was not likely that the
club could take steps to suppress It. In
the case of the Mountain Meadows mas
sacre film, the club considered that a
serious harm could bo done the Wnolo
state In a material way. and it there
fore took action against it. The other
film, however, could hardly be attacked
on the same ground, he said.

department, the meat Inspection depart
ment and tho city sealer of weighty and
measures department under one head.
whose salary shall be not less than ?2000
a year is recommended in the annual re
port. Rap at Creameries.
In connection with this recommenda
tion, Mr. Frazler asks why tho various
creameries of the city, that he alleges
have been clamoring tor his removal, do
not co-operate In the efjorts to consoli
date the three departments as has al
ready been suggested by the. elty com
mission. Tie declares that these dairies
together with their friends are urging
the appointment of the present chief
deputy in the department, Frank 5. Tyr
rel. In the appointment of a daily Inspec
tor, Mr. I-'razicr savs that tho commis
sion should be careful to obtain the ser
vices of a government man If possible.
He declares that he bus been reliably in
formed that the government will discon
tinue the testing of cattle in Utah in the
near future, leaving the task of taking
care of these matters to the city itself.

in going over tho rccoids of his de
partment during the six years of his In
cumbency as commissioner of food ami
dairies, Mr. Frasslcr says, that there has
been a. great improvement in the milk
supply of tho city
In his report Mr. Frazler says that he
is entirely satisfied with tho policy of Dr.
J. "W. Treman In the enforcement of the
meat ordinance. The report says I hat
the meat inspection Is costing tho peopl
too much for the. good which is derived
from It. He also thinks that tho ordi
nance should call for city inspectors to go
farther than one mile, beyond the cor
porato limits of the city.
In the report, Mr. Frajsier recommends
that tho killing of all animals he done
at one place. The report says that Mr.
Frazler is reliably informed that the
Inlcrmoiintaln Packing company plant
could be leased at a nominal figure. Ho
thinks that a. central killing plant should
be placed under government Inspection,
and in this way he expresses the belief
that Hie city could save S5000 annually.
Continuing, the report says:
Central Killing- Plant.
"For Istance, the killing at the six in
spected plants for the year 1911 was as
follows. IG.loo cattle, 41,652 sheep. 1555
hogs and 1042 calves. Taking as a basis
SR working days in a' year, the daily av
erage would be about. 6 cattle. 155 sheep.
51 hogs and Ho calves. The Intermoun
tnin Packing company's plant Is equipped
to handle 125 cattle daily. 400 sheep and
500 hogs There is no question but what
this plant would be adequate for at leaat
ten years. If the killing had all been
done at this plant for the pu3t year.
charging the nominal fee of 50 cents a
head for cattle, le cents for sheep. "5
cents for hops and L'5 emits for calves,
there would have been collected in fees
.$15,580.05. I feel certain that it cost the
six inspected slaughter houses of the city
?13.UIS for wages" aJono for the killing,
aside from the enormous amount required
to run tho plants and invested in ma
chinery. In my judgmnol (lie slaughter
hoijb-o, people, from a bti8iiic?s sfand
polnt. should be, at the back of the prop
osition." Mr. Fraaler in his report also vecoin
mende that an ordinance be pad lim

thousands of gallons e.f inferior cream nr&
made Into butter every summer ly the
UKe of what is known as swot milk

by the legislature requiring all butter
manufactured In this eliy to bear the
mark "Utah .State Brand." and only to

which would have the effect, of distin
guishing it. from butter sold elsewhere.

UTAH CSPITOL Pll
Architectural Papers Say That
Reputable Experts Should
EXPRESS GRAVE FEARS
Think Adherence to Present
Methods Will Result in
Xo little comment excited in Salt
I.nke yesterday by tho Interview in
Wednesday's Tribune with Alfred F. Ko
sonhoim, who gave it as his opinion that
the stale capltol commission' was making
a serious mistake In falling to submit
plans for the slate's new ofllclal home
to a competent consulting architect or
to a jury of experts. Mr. Rosenheim Is
tho president of the Pacific Coast Archi
tectural league and a member of the ex
ecutive board of tho American Institute
In line -with Mr. Rosenheim's criticism
then; la found in at least two architec
tural journals of prominenco arraignment
of tho mc-tjiods under which the compe
tition In connection with Utah's new
capltol has beon conducted. Thoxe pub

view of the capltol building situation In

The "Western Architect, published at
Minneapolis, in its December number has
In addition to the protest of the
t'tah Architects' association. John C
Olmsted, the landscape architect, and
an enlightened public In the slate,
in regard to procuring a suitable de
sign for a capitol building, tho West
ern Architect would like, to call the
attention of the commission to two
examples of capitol building competi
tions. One that la Just closed for the
capltol at Washington; the other is
that of malodorous memory for the
capltol of Pennsylvania.
Perhaps it is not known that the
scuJidal in Pennsylvania that sent an
architect and a number of contract
ors to the penitentiary r found its birth
In a competition in which the com
missioners would not take the advice
of reputable architects in regard to
Its provisions. We do not know the
complexion of those in charge In
Utah, but this is its history.
That those of Pennsylvania were
penal In their Intentions when they
refused to accept the verdict of a
properly regulated competition and
threw it over to secure an architect
who would be complacent is borne
out by the result. That the people
