the Karwcll Trust company unci its as-

received with deep iutorest by the pco-j

direct and convincing evidence that thei
financial men of the east have strong
faith in the future of Salt Lake.

HIM STATE FAIR
Steps Are Now Being; Taken
to Make Competition More
Directors o flic Uta.Ii State Fair asso
ciation held a meeting yesterday even
ing at the Vermont building head
quarters, ten members of the board bo
l?eports from department, supervisor?
were received and carefully considered
in dotail. These recommended the char
acter and value and number of pri.es
to be offered in the several depart
ments. After compilation of thase re
ports shall have been made by Secre
tary IK S. ISnsign an attractive list of
premiums will be announced. This is,
expected !q issiie sometime during the
j The board made official acceptance of
the special awards oirered by livestock
associations throughout the country for
exhibits of certain breeds or animals,
j These have been given publicity by the
press heretofore at; the eommuni..,ations
have been received by Scretary Hnsign.
A Jong letter was recived 'from the
Nevada Agricultural college, asking
that special premiums be arranged for
if possible to be competed for by out
side agricultural colleges. The com
munication stated that California had
afforded such an opportunity for inter
state competition, and that the Nevada
institution had been twice 'jittered un
der that arrangement. Tt was thought
to be advisable that such au enlarge
ment be made by the Utah association.
This request was given extended con
sideration by the board last nigiir, y.'ith
the result that such a spoei.-il premium
list will be opened, enabling agricnl-,
turn I colleges of other states to com
pete. While this arrangement will per
mit the entry of any manner of pro
duct of these college's, it is mainly in
the livestock feature that entries will
be allowed. Details of this special
competition are to be announced later.
inasmuch as the present legislative
appropriation is wellnigh exhausted, no
physical improvements will be made
this year; but it is expected that gen
erous support, from tho state's raw
makers will enable the addition next
year of v big livestock collisoum. to
gether with other improvements that
have been suggested.
Tho meeting was an enthusiastic one,
and there is now every indication that
this year's fair will be a top-notcher.

most successful and harmonious gath
ering of its kind since the initial enter
tainment following the opening of the
club in its new liome. Good fellowship
and unison of. purpose reigned with that
supremacy which is possible only among
kindred spirits. The entire programme
was one of continuous pleasure, with
business cares and personal woes for
gotten. The feature of the evening was a
reproduction of the first act of the bank
clerks' minstrel show, recently given at
the Salt Lake theater, with ma 113- vau

WEDDING DOUBLE ONE
Brother and Sister, ' Born in
Same Hour, Married in
Deputy County Clerk U. Kldredge.
Sr., was commenting on the fact yes
terday that very few marriage licenses
were asked for on 'Friday. "1 have uo
ticed," said he, "that we issue few
licenses on Friday. I presume it is
owing to the general disfavor of the
day as one suitable to enter upon any
great and important undertaking."
At this point in Mr. Eldrcdge's com
ment Deputy Clerk William P. Appleby
came into the ollice. " How is it in
the matter of naturalization papers
Mr Appleby?" asked IMr. ISldrcdge.
""Do vou have many applicants on
Friday?" "1 don notice any differ
ence," replied Mr. Appleby. "Friday
seems about as good as ainr other
''It isn't that way in the marriage
license department," continued Mr.
ISldredgc. "Now, last Friday I didn't
issue -i single one, and none today so
far. I "
Clerk Soon in Demand.
Mr. rSIdredgc's comments were out
short, by the entrance of a small party
in which were two young couples. They
walked up to tho counter. A young
man in the front of tho party said:
"We would like to got a marriage li
cense." Mr. ISldrcdge arranged his
book. "Your name and residence,
please';" he asked.
"Frederick G, Streitl, residence Mur
ray. ' '
" Vour age?"
Mr. Eldredge then turned to a, blush
ing voting lady who hd edged up to
the counter. "And your name and ad
dress?" "Stocnie Jones."
"I'll be seventeen soon."
"Have 3ou your parents' consent?"
Turning to one of the women in the
party the vaung lady replied'
"Here's my mother, ask her."
Second. Bride Twin.
The mother advanced and gave her
formal consent. When the certificate
was written out another young man of
the party pushed his way to the
counter and asked for a license. He
gave his name as Ralph E. Fuller and
his residence as Murray. "And who
is the young lady?" asked Mr. Eld
redge. The young man stepped back
and another young lady, her faco suf
fused with ' bltisV's. "ditTidoiilry ad
vanced, paying. "Esther M. otrcittj,
Murray, age twenty-three."
As Mr. Eldredge was writing out the
second ceTtifilicale he observed. "Are
Mr. Slrcitt and Miss Slreitt brother
"Yes," spoke up one of the women
of the party. "1 am their mother.
They are twins."
After the marriage licenses had been
formally made out and delivered M.rs.
Slreitt confided to Mr. ISldrcdge that
it was the desire that he should marry
the two couples. All adjourned to a
prhatc room for tho ceremony.
Before the ceremony began Mrs.
Streilt made the re'uesl. that her
daughter pud Mr. Fuller should be
joined together first. "Vou see." she
explained, "my children are twins, but
Esther was born a few minutes before
Fred and I want her to bo married a
few minutes ahead of him."
After the daughter and Mr. Fuller
had been married Ihe sou and Miss
Jones were united in their turn.
After the ceremony was all over Mr.
Eldredge remarked something about
Friday. "0 Friday is our lucky day,"
responded the Streitl, f:miily in' unison.
After the happy party had left the
cleric's otrice one of tho newspaper re
porters with a mathematical turn of
mind figured out that, twenty three
years ago the lifleenth of March fell
011 a Friday and from this he reasoned
that the remark that Friday was their
lucky day implied that the Streilt
twins were born on that. day.

Winning Architect on Capitol
Building Is Advised of
COMMITTEE TO GO EAST
Work on the Great Structure
Is Expected to Begin by.
At the meeting of the capitol com
mission yesterday afternoon Richard K.
A. Kletting, the architect of the new
state capitol building, w.ho was chosen
Wednesday night, waa formally noti
lied of his appointment by the eommis
The resolution, by which Mr. Klet
ting was notified, carried with it the
provision that he is to prepare and
deliver to the commission the com
plete working plans for the building
before July 13, so that bids may be ad
vertised for on the completed build
ing, including the heating plat, tor
races, approaches, architect's commis
sions, and cvei'3'tliing in fact with the
exception ol turniture.
The resolution contained the further
proviso that, if on the plans aud speci
fications provided by the architect, it
is found impossible io secure a $2,000,
000 bid, the architect will have to for
feit his work on the plans and with
draw. It was clearly specified by tho
commission lo Mr. Kletting that he
would have to prepare plans for a
building to cost not to exceed $2,000,000
and that the bids received will be con
sidered by the commission as a basis
upon which to judge the possibility of
Mr. Kletting 's plans coming within the
Committee to Go East.
H further was decided at yesterday's
meeting that Mr. Kletting, accompan
ied by a committee of three members
of the capitol commission, should leave
for the cast within a few days for the
purpose of visiting and inspecting the
capitol buildings of Rhode Island. Ken
tucky, and possibly Minnesota. It has
not. vet been definitely decided who
will be chosen to accompany the archi
tect, but. it is thought that three will
be named who were not with tho com
mission on its trip to the east, last
year. Governor Spry did not make the
trip, nor did Authon H. Lund and C.
IS. Loose. Tho governor said last night
that it would be impossible for him to
leave at this time, but that, another
member would be appointed in his
Work to Begin Soon.
The governor stated it as his opinion
yostcrday that, if no unusual delays arc
encountered, work should commence on
the capitol by September 15. After the
working plans arc accepted and cheeked
bids will be advertised for and con
tracts let. It is thought that this will
take about sixty days. The commission
is eager to complete the building by
January, HMfi, when the eleventh leg
islature meets, and also to have it as
a ''show place'' during the rush of
tourists lilely to visit Salt Lake en
route to the exposition in San Fran
cisco. The various drawings of plans sub
mitted to the commission bv Iho archi
tects who entered tho competition will
be exhibited to the public early next
