Shovel men Draw Pay.
The steam shovel men In tin employ
of the Utah Copper company drew their
time yesterday. That action Is equiva
lent to a walkout. They wero thrown
out of work by the striko of tho minors,
but have been on the payroll of the com
pany. Yesterday they decided to draw
their time rather than sign an agree
ment with the company that they would
return to work at the company s call.
The agreement also provided for an In
crease in pay of S10 a month for 3tcam
shovel men and 55 advanco for crane
nicn. The men announced that they
would not return to work until the strike
was settled. It Is said that ninny of the
steam shovel men are preparing to leave.
It is reported among railroad men at
Bingham that tho railroad trainmen and
engineers are, for the most part, pre
paring to draw their tlmo and quit the
camp. The railroad men are not on
strike, but. their actual employment ha3
vanished because there is no work to do.
They are on the payrolls, however.
Hilton Gets No Reply.
Judge O. N. Hilton, attorney for the
Western Federation of Labor, who Is tn
Salt Lake, last night said that he had
received no reply from D. C. .Tackling,
general manager of the Utah Copper com
pany. to a communication addressed to
MY. Jackling Tuesday. Judge Ulllon had
not conferred with President Moyer oi
tho Western Federation up to midnight
last night. Tie said lie would probably
talk with Mr. Moyer today.
It if? 6aid in Biugham that the num
ber of men at the Highland Boy will
be iucrcascrl this morning.
Take Varying Views.
President. R. II. Channing, president
of the Utah Con., said: "Wo have
broken tho ice, and we expect to show
that this strike was called against the
wishes of the majority of our em
ployees." 15. G. Locke, secretary of the Bing
ham locnl of tho Western Federation
of Miners, said: "The attempt to re
sume operations will fail. Thoso who
returned to work today will soon see
It was reported at. Bingham last
evening that a number of notices had
boon distributed among former Utah
Con. employees, warning thom that the
homos of "all who returned to work
would bo blown up. Chief Deputy
Sheriff AtcI Steele said he had ob
tained possession of ouo of tho notices.
Tho men who wero charged with dis
tributing them wero driven down tho
canyon. They offered no resistance.
The men who were thus ushered out
of tho camp denied that thoy had cir
culated tho notices.
Jackling 's Position.
D. C. Jackling of tho Utah Coppor
company yesterday said that he had
been misunderstood in his discussion
Tuesday night of the situation with ref
erence to receiving committees or com-
munications. Ho said, in regard to
"What I did sa-, and what T wish
to emphasize," said Mr. Jackling, "is
that I have not como into contact with
the Western Federation of Miners, and
my attitude has been jilnin all along
that I would have no dealings what
ever with the Western Federation or
no communication .from that organiza
tion, nor would I receive or consider
anv such communication."
Tho attitude of the Utah Copper
officials from the beginning has been
that they were willing at any and all
times to confer with tho employees of
tho company in regard to any question
touching tho welfare of those em
ployed in any enpacit- by the com
pany, but that under no circumstances
were the officials willing to meet the
representatives of the Western Fed
eration of Minors nor an' other out
siders not connected with tho Utah
Copper company or its employees.
It has been plain likewise" from the
beginning of the striko at Bingham
that to properly place whatever griev
ances they may have before the proper
officials of the Utah compiLuj- for ad
justment the men should conle as em
ployees, for Mr. Jackling on his ar
rival in Salt Lake Cit3' two weeks ago
stated that the men should return to
their work, thorcby establishing the
propor relations which would form the
basis for negotiations.
hi: alarm boxes
The first step toward the installa
tion of an independent telephone line
for the firo department alarm boxes
was taken yesterdnv when Mayor !
Samuel C. Park tiled with the city
recorder for transmission to tho city
commission a requisition for 45,000
feet of coppor wire. 2000 insulators
and 750 oak brackets,
Tbo supplies arc. to bo used in in
stalling a private cable on gong con
duits to stations 2, -1, fi and 6 and to
tho waterworks office, displacing the
present cables owned bv the Mountain
Slates Tclephono and "Telegraph com
pany. Chief V. II. By wafer of tho
fire dcpaTtniont estimates that the in
stallation will effect a saving in cable
rentals of $275 a month in addition
to bringing about bettor efficiency.

Nature Contributes Rain;
Children Learn of Best
Methods of Protection.
Yesterday being "Fire Prevention
Da'' in Utah, it was altogether fit
ting nnd proper that tho elements
should assist by rainfall. Tn addi
tion to nature's observance of tho day,
fire drills and simplo lectures on fire
prevention were ;iven in man o the
ochools throughout tho state.
Tho work of Insurance Commissioner
Willard Done in advocating fire pre
vention measures is attracting atten
tion in iusuranco circles throughout
tho country. Following tho lead of
Utah tho state of California observes
April IS aa tiro prevention day. That
date is tho anniversary of tho San
Francisco earthquake and lire. Oc
tober 0, yesterday, was tho fort3'-firat
anniversary of the Chicago firo.
"Xow that T have tho matter woll
under wayJ said Commissioner Done,
"my next stop will bo nn effort to
organize a Fire Prevention association
in Utah. I want prominent business
men, stnte officials, firemen nnd in
surance company representatives to be
the members. Such an association
could do much toward reducing the fire
loss. Violation? of tho laws rogavding
the cleaning up of rubbish, of build
ing according to fireproof standards,
the Inch of proper appliances with
which to combat fire all of these
things could be reported by members
of the association to the chief officers,
so that tlic conditions in each case
could be remedied."
Quoting, from a recent speech beforo
tho Trnnsmississippi Commercial con
gress, jUr, Done showed that the fire
los in the United States amounts to
$500 a minute.
"That would be tho equivalent of an
average man's homo being burnod up
every three minutes. Think of what
a sensation it. would cause if twenty
$1500 residences in Salt Lake wore
burned up jn an hour. And 3"et that
is what the loss every minute of the
day and night amounts to in this coun
try Much of it can bo prevented, and
T believe wo have a good start to
ward reducing the iobs in this stato
through the assistance T havo roceivod
from thoso interested in Ulan."
Commissioner Dono has offered a $10
and. a $5 prizo for the first and second
best essays on firo provontion to be
written by the children of the seventh
nnd eighth grades in the state. Each
county superintendent will send in the
two nest essays from tho schools in
his jurisdiction. They must bo in the
hands of Mr. Dono by October 30. He
will grade them and "make tho awards.
The limit for the essays is 1000 words.
ILL TEST VALIDITY
OF "TAXDEED LAW"
City Commission Raises the
Question as to Title Held '
The city commissioners yesterday de
termined to attack the validity of the
state laws 'which give a title to real
estate after a tax deed hiis been secured
and the other necessary legal steps taken.
A resolution by Commissioner G. D.
Kcyser authorized the legal department
to take whatever stops are necessary to
get into court with a case Involving cer
tain parcels of land In sections 11 and 15.
township 1 south, range 1 east, and
valued at 510,000.
The ground, which Is located In the
neighborhood of the penitentiary, and is
known as the Moon land, waa a numbor
of years ago Illegally assessed and then
sold for taxes. Suit was filed by the
purchasers of the tax title, and then tho
city attorney filed a disclaimer of title
on bclialf of the city.
Tho commissioners bcUcvo that recent
decisions of courts Indicate that such title
is not valid, and an effort will be made
to secure tho roturn of the land to the
city. It Is contended b tho commission
era and admitted by the legal depart
ment, that If Huoh success Is attained,
that the entire stato law affecting tax
titles might be brought Ir.o question.
The commissioners decided, that the
State Fair association wouU not be com
pelled to make a meter dejioslt the same
as other consumers of water. The fair
association will be reassessed on the
basis of meter readings taken since last
July, but no deposit will be required for
the meter mirchuscd and installed this
spring by the city at a cost of 3173. A
city ordinance distinctly reads that de
posits shall be required fr.- all meters.
RELEASE OF BOND
City Attorney Harper J. Dininny in
an opinion given tho city recorder ves
terday for transmission to the citv com
nilHsIotihra advises the latter not to re
lease the Utah Independent Telephone
company from the 325.000 bond which is
on rile with the city.
Several days ago the local agenev for
the bonding company petitioned the "com
mission for a release of the bond and
the petition was referred to the citv at
torney. Attorney Dininny holds that the origi
nal bond was given as HurMj- to secure
the city in the removal of all wires, poles
and conduits from the streets of the city.

machines arc on exhibition at Klcth

the Gardner-Adams clothing store.
There ia an urgent need that more ma
chines be immediately placed on exhibi
tion in the various parts of tho city In
order that the voters may have the op
portunity to familiarlzo themselves with
the machines. It has been suggested that
twenty or thirtj' machines be placed In
convenient places hi the city for the ex
amination and experimentation of the
Tho noed of n. number of sample ma
chines thiB ear is especially urgent,
since It la conceded that a great number
of voters will this year scratch their
tlcket. This Is not easy for those un
familiar with a voting machine to do, but
when the method Is explained to the
voter by the demonstrator and the voter
has the" opportunity to test the machine
no difficulty Is experienced.
There were 210 who visited the ma
chine at the Keith-O'Brien store yestor
day and cast sample ballots. Most of
those who tried the machino were ladles
and only a very few expressed a desire
lo voto a straight ticket.

In Milwaukee we established a bu
reau of economy and efficiency.
Through this bureau wo looked after
the poor. We went to the founda
tion and looked afler the children.
Wo taught their parents how to prop
erly feed and clothe them. We went
further, and taught the mothers how
to care for themselves before the
child wn born. AH of this cost
money, and our opponents, the own
era of department stores and fac
tories, many of them, criticised us
for the expense- Rut I tell you that
I don't want to bo mayor of any city
that will not care for thn welfare
of Its children and sec that they grow
to be good, healthy citizens. After
six mouths of work this bureau had
actually decreased the Infant mor
tality rate ovor 51 per cent.
Regarding national Issues, Mr. Scidel
said In part:
The trusts are good in so far an
they Increase productivity with de
creased waste. They are bad only In
so far as they deprive the people of
the lnoani: with which to earn their
Collective ownership of truats would
retain the good features and elimi
nate the bad ones. The nation
Bhould at once lake control of tho
national trusts: tho state should own
those trusts that arc a unit in the
state; the county those that are a
unit in Its confines, and the city
should own those that are unltii with
in the city.
