m 14 THE SALT LAKE TRIBUNE, TUESDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 5, 1912. m
if Missive Urging Mormons to
, 1 Vote for Tafl Is Dislrib-
j uted Over City.
J: REGARDED AS CANARD
: Managers of All Political Par-
I ties Vehemently Deny
A furoro of excitement was caused at
f each political headquarters yesterday
forenoou by tho appearance of an inno-
cent appearing, poorly printed card
widely distributed throughout the city.
The card, unsigned, bore likenesses of
President William H. Taft and Senator
Ifccd Stnoot and urged all .Mormons lo
voto for Taft. Tho card purported to
-ji defeud. tho federal bueh and contained
J ; several extracts from a speech dqlivercd
j two years ago by President Smith, dc-
, fending the federal officeholders of
; Vtab. There was also on the card a
: bit of doggerel suggesting that Mormons
secretly unite and vote for Taft.
Prompt to Deny.
At the. appearance of the card there
,j was a prompt denial v responsibility
for the printing and distribution of the
nrd at each political headquarters.
Kai'h party manager suggested that an
' other party was responsible for it and
I that while each was not sure about
the effect of tho card each was con
' vinccd that it would act :i3 a boom-
r.rnng on the political party that fos-
? Hy checking up with the persons who
pi were distributing the. cards it was
t: Icnrned that the distribution had been
ordered by none of the party head
it quarters hut by an individual who had
t not taken any active part in politics
j but who had a personal aversion to the
federal bunch. The distributor did not
I If now whether or nol the man rcspon
( ' jble for the distribution was a Mormon
! but was sure that ho was not actively
affiliated with any political party.
Name Kept Secret.
The distributor dceliucd to give the
name of the man who furnisHcd the
: ards. ft was learned thai, this man
h:nl called at tho Western Ncwsnapcr
l Union offices and had borrowed the
K cut of Reed .S'moot.
li When it v. as learned that no political
K headquarters was responsible for the
publication and distribution of the card
Hie consternation at the various head
I quarter.-; wa abated and the opinion
I s was generally expressed that tho only
j , , function 'hat i-ould be served by the
ard was one of occasioning amusement
I and that it would not influence an-
"votes one way or another.

the affirmative lo roost of tho ques
tions making certain limitations in re
gard to Ihe exact meaning of transmis
sible diseases. He favors a minimum
wage scale for women first, hoping
to sec ihe same law passed for men in
the near future. It seems thai, owing
to his almost continuous absence from

list of questions till loo lato for him
to send in a personal reply.

themselves as strongly in favor of the

nine-hour law for women, overv one
favorod it. except those who held for
an eight-hour law similar to that gov
erning the working men of the state.
This was, of course, I lie most import

CITY WATER SUPPLY
Commissioner Korns Submits
Plan to Expend 535,000
and Do Much.
USE ARTESIAN WELLS
Proposal Will, It Is Under
' stood, Receive Favorable
A project whereby the. old artisan
wells near Liberty park, the ilow l'rom
which now runs to waste, can be made
to contribute b',000,000 gallons daily
tlow to the general water system of the
city at an original cost of S'Jfi.OOO aud
at a maintenance coat of about 1 cent
per 3000 gallons, was outlined to the
city commission at its executive ses
sion yesterday morning by "V. H.
Korns. commissioner of water supply
Mr. Korns would pump the flow from
,the old wells, amounting to 1,000,000
gallons daily, into the city mains and
would bore new wells in the same vi
cinity, establishing pumping units with
a capacity of 1,500,000 gallons. The first
unit would take care of the present
flow and the flow from one or two ad
ditional wells. Other units to handle
other wolis could be established as fast
as needed at a small cost after the lirsl.
outlay. Tho total supply possible to be
obtained bv this method is placed at
not lcs than 0,000,000 gallons, which
is .slight I v more than one-fourth of the
total present water sunnlv.
Would Help in Winter.
As a reserve supply to be pumped
into the iniiins when the regular supply
is short, in the summer and in the win
ter when the freezing of the mountain
streams curtails iho regular flow, the
proposed new supply -would adequately
solve the problem, it is said. The pump
ing stations would be put in operation
only when necessary, thus curtailing
tho expense to a minimum,
Tho commissioners received the pro
posal with favor but it was declared
that the citv docs nol. have funds
enough on hand at present to undertake
tho project, at, once. It was decide.! un
ofiicially that 'the plan should receive
consideration in the budget for tho com
The wells il is proposed to put in
use were driven twenty-two vents ago
and the original flow " was ' 3,000.000
daily. All of them are in poor condi
tion now and but one-third of iho for
mer flow is now apparent, according to
the report of C. F. Barrett, superinten
dent of waterworks, who has been in
vestigating the feasibility of the plan
for several weeks.
Estimating the Flow.
Mr. Barrett measured the flow from
one of the wells and found that it is
fifty-one gallons per minute. He judges
from this that a new six-inch well
would flow 1 HO gallons a minute ami
that ten tax-inch wells would supply
1,500,000 gallons daily.
The cost of digging new wells would
not exceed :rSlU each complete, accord
ing to Mr. Barrett's estimates, it is
held to be more practical to dig new
wells than to clean the old ones, which
havo become filled with gravel and dirt.
The cost of a pumping plant to. dis
charge the vvatcr obtained from tho
wells would To about $1U.O0O for one
unit, each unit, supplying 1.500.000 gal
lons. Kach additional unit would cost
$5000, and figuring four units lo han
dle tho total possible supply, the total
cost of the project, including the cost
of driving Ihe additional wells, would
not exceed $:!5,n00, it is said. This fig
ure as compared to the cost of obtain
ing a similar supply from the mountains
is considered remarkably low.

PLAN IS SUGGESTED
TO I THE BLIND
City Commission Is Asked to
Adopt Rule to Assist the
DAMAGE CLAIMS DENIED
Cily Attorney Holds That the
Municipality Is Nol
To aid the blind itt making Ihcir way
through the traffic, of the business dis
trict, safely, G. W, Timspon, president
of the Western Association of the
adult blind, would have the city com
mission adopt a rule whereby every
sight leas person may summon a police
man by blowing a whistle. Mr. Timp
son suggests this action in a petition
submitted to the commissioners hist
night. It sets forth that the rule has
been adopted in many large cities and
has resulted in a material decrease in
I the number of tratfie accidents to the
blind. .Mr. Tinipson would have each
blind person carry a whittle of uni
form note which iill policemen patrol
ling the business district and all traf
lico policemen would recognize as an
appeal for help.
The petition was referred to the de
partment, of public safety. Commis
sioner Lawrence suggested that in case
the rule is adopted that all citizens be
asked to observe it. by rendering aid
to the blind whenever neecssury.
Claims for Damages.
Two claims for damages to automo
biles, bv coming into collision with an
obstruction in the center of the street
just, west of Ihe Oregon .Short Line via
duct on North Temple s-trect, were
submitted lo the city commission last
night and referred to the legal de
partment. Earl Hennion asks $500
damages a, ml X. G. tftringham asks for
.$H00 damages. Doth claimants assort
I hey ran into the obstruction on the
night of October 2.
On advice of II. J. "Dininny, city at
torney, tho commi.-vsiou denied the pe
tition of W. T". Hutchinson, asking for
.2.",000 damages for the death of .'lames
II. Seanlan, who died of injuries re
ceived when the police automobile col
lided wilh a rig near the rJaltair depot
September 2S. The city attorney held
that under the law Ihe city was not
liable for the accident.
The petition of Harry ("lark, the oc
cupant of the rig which the police auto
struck, asking for $1000 damage, also
was denied at Ihe suggestion of the
city attorney, who holds that Clark
was responsible, in a v.ny, for tho ac
cident bv blocking the right-of-way
with his buggy.
Help for Gulbransen.
Fred Gulbransen. alarm keeper at the
central fire station, was awarded
with which to purchase a. new cellu
loid jacket which he is forced to wear
as Ilic result of injuries to his back
received, several years ago. While driv
ing the. chemical" to a 'ire, Gulbransen
was caught under a falling tree and
his back was broken. A celluloid jack
et became necessary for the support
of his back. Each year tho city has
purchased a new jacket for Gulbran
sen. According lo Iho report of the city
treasurer, the city has $22i,S70.i'i on
deposit ami :?27.'IS.'1." cash on hand. The
report was approved.
A resolution was passed approving
