IB Wind Shakes Tower.
Kj Tlie windstorm that hit the fair
K grounds yesterday came up suddenly and
I wrought mui'h havoc while It lasted.
Ml Numerous tents were overturned and
H' frail booths twisted. The wind struck
B the six-story tower where tho flre exhl-
tft Mtlon Is given and it came within a foot
Ei of toppling over. It withstood the strain,
jjg; however, and when the wind ceased the
gi1 tower was found to be leaning a foot out
gf of perpendicular. The flre exhibition wis
rfj not given yesterday because of the dan-
k9 ger that might attend the work of tho

"PICKING UP" DETAILS
New Board of Governors Re
mains to Outline Plans for
Tho twentieth Nnlional Irrigation
congress has passed into history with
a record of success. The great major
ity of tlie eight hundred delegates and
their guests left Salt Lako by overs
train yesterday, gointr to their homes
in all parts of tho American continent,
and some of them, tho foreign repre
sentatives, will carry the nows of tho
convention's work to their distant
homos across the waters of the Pacifie
Tho new board of governors Tcmnined
after tho others lo make final disposi
tion of the business of tho session and
to outlino the programme of work
which the congress voted to carry out.
This iuclndes numerous campaigns for
the passage of both federal and state
legislation in which the irrigation lead
era are vitally interestod.
Canada Wants Congress,
A. .four-hour session of the hoard was
held yesterday in the Hotel Utah. The
board appointed L. Newman of Groat
Palls, Moul., to represent the Irrigation
congress at tho Dry Farming congress,
which will bo held this fall in Calgary,
Alberta. That city's invitation for tho
1914 Irrigation congress to meet there
was roceived and placed on file. One
of the moat important committees, the
.committee on legislation, was appointed
by Chairman. George A. iSnow. Tho
members of. this committee arc Presi
dent Eichard P. Young of the twenty
first congress, Tj. Newman and K. P.
Bolim of Cleveland, editor of an au
thoritativo book ou tho Carv act. The
duties of this commit! co will bo to en
courage tho legislation which, the con
gross recommended. Notable among
these is Senator Newlandu'3 river regu
Winding Up Business.
Many other matters pertaining to the
futuro policies aud actions of the con
grcps were fully and carefully discussed
at tho meoting. The preliminary plans
for the next international congress to
bo held in Phoenix next year were also
considered. .Tho board adjourned to
meet again in this city the latter part
of November, the definite date to be
Socretary Hooker 'moved Tiia head
quarters back to the Boston building
yesterday and announced that he would
commence work on the next congress
and carry out the instructions of this
session at once. He will probably havn
his headquarters here in Salt Lake un
til some time toward tho first of the

Boost for Salt Lake.
Wherovcr the delegates to the con
gress go. and- that "will bo to every
state in the union and to a number of
forcien countries, Salt Lake City will
bo advertised .'is a ro3'aI entertainer,
and a pleasing city. It is safe to say
that not one criticism of the city "was
made. None of the 807 delegates and
their scores of friends here for the con
gress was heard talking a "grouch."
According to many of the "oldtimera"
who have attonded conventions of the
irrigation promoters for yeaxs, it "was
the most harmonious gathoring ever
held. Many oxpressed a hope that Salt
Lako would entertain the' congress soon
again. High officials even went so far
as to say that they believed that Salt
Lake Oily could have the congress
again any year it. asked for it.
The manner in which tho crowds were
accommodated, the total lack of a
'holdup" spirit upon the part of hotels
and private homes where delegates were
housed, gave absolute proof that the
cit- can provide adequate accommoda
tions for any gathering,, no matter what
tho size. The fact that more than 3000
rooms were offered within a day after
the call was scut out shows what can
bo .done. "Any irity in the countrv that
is ambitious to surpass Salt Lake as a
convention city will kavo to 'go
some,' '' one official said today.

IT SCENE OF STRIKE
Company Chief Makes Inspec
tion of Workings, but Still
Committee of Union Men
Coming- From Ely lo Meet
Further Indications of the Utah Copper
company's Intention to resume operations
at Bingham developed yesterday when D.
C. .Tackling, general manager: H. C. Gcm
mcll, his assistant, R. Jl. Channlng and
Sheriff .JoBoph C. Sharp visited the big
mine. They made a careful inspection
of the property and discussed the situa
tion thoroughly. Noli would divulge tho
company's plans. They were accompanied
by J. .D. Shilling, superintendent of the
mine, and later It was rumored that an
effort to break tho ntrlk'o might be ex
pected any clay. Hundreds of employees
forred from work by the strikers are still
carried on the pyarol).
More Deputies on Ground.
Thirty more deputy sheriffs were sent
to the Utah Copper hotel to take the
places of those who have- left. Regular
deputies at Bingham said there wils no
intention to diminish the force. The un
derstanding among all tho guards is that
they arc apt to bo called upon lo defend
non-union workmen at any moment.
Stephen G. Skllrls, manager of the Piui
Helenlc store, which, at least until the
strike, served as a Greek employment
agency headed by U G. Skllrls, linr. said
many Greeks are willing lo return to the
mines. Several Salt Lako Greeks are
known to hav(! mingled with tho strikers
and others of their countrymen with
the Intention of persuading them 'to re
turn. These men said they represented
the company. An Italian, Domlnlco Sl
moncttl, has been doing similar work
among the striking natives of his land.
Others are said to have, been equally ac
tive and to have obtained results suffi
cient to enable tho mine to open.
Bingham Camp Quiet.
No violence was attempted In Bingham
yesterday Deputies not doing patrol
duty occupied their time at their hotel
with cards and tobacco. Since tho Greeks
have practically abandoned the east bank
of tho canyon only when a deputy Is
guarding property Is ho allowed to rarry
a rifle. Meanwhile the weapons are kept
In a gun room. More ammunition was
sent to Bingham yesterday.
Charles H. Moyer, president of the
Western Federation of Miners, left Salt
Lake for Denver yesterday. Ho said he
would remain at federation headquarters
in that city a few days, laying plans
with other officers of the organization.
It Is not known how soon tho federation
Intends to act as regards the mines of
New Mexico and Arizona.
J. C. Jjowney, executive board mem
ber, returned to Bingham. Yanco Ter
zlch, also on the board, remained In Salt
Lake at the Cullen hotel. Before Moyer
left theso and other strike leaders held
a meeting, at the conclusion of which A.
L. Wilde, business agent for the Steam
Shovelmen's union, reiterated the threat
of futuro strikes.
Many Greeks Leaving.
Workmen drew water from tho boilers
of tho steam shovels on the Utah Copper
mine yesterday without molestation. Any
activity of this port In ' the early days
of tho strike would, It Is believed, have
drawn the flre of the Greeks, many of
whom now, however, are leaving their
homes. Many of their houses are built
of powder box lumber on (ho company's
ground. A rumor yesterday morning that
the corporation Intended ousting them
caused considerable excltoment This1
move linn been .expected several days by
the deputy sheriffs.
A committee from the Steam Shovel
men's union of Ely Is expected to arrive
In Bingham today. A consultation will be
hold with the Bingham strike represen
tatives, .Efforts will bo. made to Induce
strikers of both Bingham and Ely to re
main near the scenes of their former em
ployment. A joint rrlief fund will prob
ably bo discussed Mr. Moyer has said
the miners' federation inrludcd 50.000 or
60,000 men steadily employed, besides the
strikers, and thai those at work could be
depended on for contributions. He added
that relief is not: yet necessary; that the
strikers wero prepared lo meet the cost
of living several weeks at least.
Tooele Is Affected.
It was learned that the International
Smelting and Penning company at Tooele
will close down tho lasl of Its revcrbera
tory" furnaces today as a result of tho
Bingham and South Utah strikes. When
the strike was declared at Bingham the
copper smelter had four of the battery of
Ave roverberatories in full blast, among
the Bingham customers of this company
belug the Utah Consolidated and Bing-ham-N'ow
Haven. The lead smelter at
Tooele Is not affected by Bingham, as the
company has a. very large tonnage of ores
on hand, stock-piled.
At Garfield, it is understood that there'
is sufticiont ore on hand to supply tlie
smelters for the next ten davs or two
George Belalls, Nick Tslamarlls, Ta-harlaj-
rtausakls. John Levlndakls, John

charged with assault and battery In a
complaint Issued yesterday in the countv
attorney's office. The men ar alleged
to have attacked and beaten George A--oklnos
near Bingham October when,
it h said. Coklnos represented himself as
an employment agent of tho Utah Cop
At the time of the assault it was al
leged Coklnos had S20.000 to distribute
among certain Greeks as compensation
for inducing strikers to return to work.
He denies this and says he asked some
of hln Greek friends to return in the In
terest of peace. On tho night of Octo

In Bingham that he would visit him and
that someone tapped the telephone wire

to lie friends. Induced him to leave the
automobile and beat I'lm with guns and
other weapons. lie was badly Injured
and had to bo taken to a hospital to have

from the severe beating.
Business men of Bingham hold a meet
ing In tho Bingham Commercial club last
night and petitioned the club to act In
conjunction with the Salt Lake Com
mercial club and ascertain .If there la any
way to have the mine operators and
worklngmcn roach a peaceable settle
ment. Business In Bingham Is still at
a standstill. Tho club appointed it com

against his candidacy. Mr. Joseph de
clares that there is ho record eithur in
Utah or Nevada, whero Judgn Johnson
has lived practically all the time- since
coming to this country from Denmark,
that he was ever a naturalized citizen.
However, it Is urged by Judge John
son's frionds that he served as a mem
ber of the territorial legislature, as
United States commissioner, and aa dis
trict iudgo and his citizenship has nev
er been questioned. Tt is quite generally
known that Johnson s father's name
was Jensen, but Judge Johnson has been
known by tho naino of Johnson for the
past forty years and has been elected
to office under that name.
TJnder a recent federal law, candi
data for congress arc required to file a.
statement of contributions to their cam
paign and the campaign ex pond i tures
prior to the nominating convention, or
primary, with the secretary of state of
the United States before tho conven
tion is hold. That Judge Johnson failed
to do this is tho substance of ono of the
allegations set forth in tho protest.
Undue Influence Charged.
The fourth charge is the charge pre
viously made by Mr. Joseph that the
nomination of Jhdgo Johusou was irreg
ular in that it was accomplished by the
use of improper and uudue influences.
Mr. Joseph charges activity of certain
appointees of the governor in Johnson's
behalf in tho convention.
Harry S. Joseph, one of the protcst
auts, was Johnson's lending' opponent!
for the Republican congressional nom
ination. Joseph Sishow, the other pro
testant, is a Republican party worker,
who is the Hepuhlicu.ii chairman of the
fifty-fourth election district.
In addition to the protest filed with
the secretary of state. Mr. Joseph wroto,
to Chairman Henry. Gardner ot tho Re
publican state committee, calling atten
tion to the filing of the protest and
suggesting that had the state commit
tee granted him a hearing on the
charges brought against Johnson he
would not have filed the protest.
PLEASED WITH CANVASS.
Democrats and Republicans Am Both
Satisfied With Results.
The Republican canvass has been com
pleted in several of the districts In the
city and the headquarters force' Is busily
at work compiling the results. The of
ficers of the Republican county commit
tee aay that tho canvass shows the Re
publicans will more than hold their own
at the coming election. They nay that
what defection there Is of Republicans to
the "Bull .Moose" party will be more than
offset by the Americans who so to the
Republican party. They Ukcwlso state
that the canvass shows that the Repub
licans will KCt very few. If any, more
votes than at the last election.
On the other hand, officers at Demo
cratic headquarters say they are sur
prised and pleased at the reports from
the Democratic primaries which are now
In full blast. They report that large
numbers of voters who cast Republican
votes two years ago and four years ago
will this year vote the straight Demo
cratic ticket. Furthermore, they say that,
the Democrats will get a large percentage
of the American vote.
Canvassers of all parties report an un
usually large number of doubtful voters
this year. These voters are those who
have voted the American ticket for tho
past seven years and who havn not yet
decided how they will cast their ballots
