used by Salt Lake dally at different sea
sons of the year and the amounts used
by each district of the water system,
will bo recommended by C. l' Barrett,
.superintendent of waterworks, hi his
annual report to tho city commission.
Mr. Barrett believes tho accumulation
of reliable data concerning the dally
consumption of water In the city, the
amount needed by various parts of tho
city and the variation between seasons,
Is essential to tho proper admlnlst ration
of tho water department In the future.
Among other thlngp, It woidd make pos
sible a chock on the waler consumption
that Is nol possible at present. Tho far
famed waterhog of tho summer moti.ths
could bo traced to his lair and other
perplexing matters coped with.
Mr. Barrett would have lho meters
Installed at each intake to the system
and at each main supplying a district.
Tho amount of waler lost In tlin sys
tem could bo dutcrinlned readily by
means of the meters.

SALT LAKE CITY
Salt Lake City turned a complete
somersault flnacially yesterday. Where
as lho previous day tho city was losing
sleep over a $-00,000 overdraft in I he
hanks, at tho close of business yester
day the red figures had been completely
wiped out and a cool ?200,000 stood lo
tho city's credit.
Tho good angel was one Fred Bassctt,
treasurer of Salt Lake couuly, who. for
several weeks past, has been garnering
taxes from kc citizens of both city and
county. "i esterday ho forwarded to
Frank Codbc. city treasurer, a cheek for
?400,000 merely by way of an Installment
on tho city's share of the tax levy.
Tt was the largest eheck ever han
dled In tho history of lho city treasury
and It came at a time when the city
is most in need of cash. To bo sure,
it will apply on nct year's allownuce,
and the chances nro the city will be
facing another overdraft a year hence,
hut that's a long time ahead, says tho
treasurer, and $200,000 right on hand is
a cause for Joy and chestiucss just
Tho city's total share of the I axes this
year will range between S.S'00,000 and
$300,000. A part payment was tundered
several days ago from tho eounly treas
urer, amounting to about 5100,000. There
yet remains about ?3f0,000 on account.

lingo has mado adjiitratioii of his
skill tho dominant feeling among lho
When the curtain rises lho entire
audience is a question mark, ho ques
tion is, how can a mcro man enact the
rolo of a woman with tho necessary
completeness of illusion? Surely, one
says lo olio's self, he will fail painfully
sometimes in tbo inflection of his voice,
in feminine mannerism, in his move
ments, in his general deportment or in
some way that will shatter lho illu
sion and make the scene embarrassing.
Tho questioning attitude on tho pari
of tho spectator continues lo lho end.

oneself, what will ho do next? How

Into an astounding barltono that almost

The accommodating press agent has
told enough of Ihe plot to make a de
tailed synopsis unnecessary. It Is a
college play and Klllngc is the college
widow. This college of "K" is co-educational
and, therefore, wo find all lho fa
miliar characters or such a school. Wc
have Lankton Aclls, the college trainer:
Tuthill Lefflngwell, a freshman; Oswald
Wcntworlh (the sissy) sophomore: .the
Rev. Wilbur VTatts, the college chaplain;
Mrs. Leffingwcll, matron of the girls'
dormitory, also a widow; Margaret Lef
fingwcll. her daughter, who is In love
with Hal Blake and Is just as much in
the dark as the others as lo the Identity
of the fascinating widow; Tcssle Dan
forlli (enacted by June Mathis, a former
Salt Lake girl), a romp: Ivy Tracy, a.
clinging vine, and many other charming
college girls. It Is evident that witn
these Ingredients a most delightful feast
of comedy )? served.
No diva of grand opera is more lav
ishly endowed with "gowns" than Mr.
Eltlnge. His wardrobe Is gorgeous, su
perb and all the other throe-ring circus
adjectives that onts may wish to em
ploy. CIIs first nppearnncc as the widow
Is in a stunning dress of black velvet
In the latest mode with a picture hat
(o mutch. A little later, when every
body, including the chaplain. Is tripping
merrily to the beach. JEltlngo appears In
a bathing suit that sets off to great
advantage "that figure" which makes
tho other girls so Jealous. The other
girls arc also in bathing suits Just to
show the difference.
The next In order Is a black jet over
white satin, with coral satin draperies.
Tho fourth creation Is more wonderful
still. It would require the feminine fancy
of an Eltlngo properly to describe It.
Suffice to say that In it the widow per
forms a scarf dance that would make
Mary Cardan choke with envy.
Tho last dress of all Is the bridal gown,
which Is a. bewitching creation. This
gown is required because the widow has
arranged to wed "his" hated rival so
as to add the final touch of humiliation
at. tho last moment. Accompanying tho
bride aro eight 'bridesmaids In sulphur
green gowns aud sulphur green picture
hats that arc crowned with nodding
plumes of crrcen.
Tho nrR act of the play presents the
exterior of a hotel In the mountains.
Tho second net has two scenes. The
first shows a r'oolns In tho boys' dormi
tory at "K" college, and tho second a cor
ner In the reception hall in the girls'
dormitory. The final scene Is tho chap
lain's study adjoining tho "K" college
Eltlngo is not the only impersonator of
women on lho stage today. There are
a few who might even bo described ns
successful, but Eltingo is the only one
who elevates the art. to a high standard.
Tho ordinary Impersonator's Idea of a
fascinating widow would lead him to
make the role suggestive and more or
less vulgar- Ettlngc presents his fna
elnallng widow iw a lady, cultured, re
fined ami winning, one who ehnrms the
girlc. uttrncts the men and disarms the
shafts of the moral censors,
Tho triumph of the Impersonator would
not bo complete If he did not sing and
dance with the witchery ami grace or
a "perfect lady." This Eltlngo does In
a way that makes some of the. grace
ful young women of his "chorus" look
Just a bit awkward ut times In the light
of hla achievement.
In the first act "lfal and the girls"
slug "Tho Fascinating Widow" and
"Don't Go in the Water." In the sec
ond act he leads a song and danoo en
titled "The Rug Time College Girl." 7n
the third act "Hal and the Bridesmaids"
sing "Wedding Bells" and march most
demurely In regulation bridal fashion.

movement seems to bo all right.
Keep it up.
Good Fellow can stlU make use ot
many names and addresses. The Young
Women's Christian association has
agreed to furnish twenty. Individuals
aio also sending them in. Tho royal
ruler of the order requests that the
senders sign their own names and ad
dresses that ho might know on whom
ho is depending for the authenticity of
tho information In tho letters, but not
for publication. There Is no publicity
for anybody In the Unlet of Good Fellows.
All leltern requesting names of children
arc returned. "Charily vauulelh not

The royal ruler requests names and
addresses of children in lJIngham whose
Chrlslmiuj may ijo devoid ot toys. Rlng

ing ttil.s request and all requests for

There is no advertising, no publicity, no

They j;ot tbo toys. Good Fellow and all
ithcr members of the order become

as little disappointment as possible will
occur when "the .stockings aro hung by
the chimney with cure In hopes that
St. Nicholas soon will be there."
Impositions on Good Fellows will be
prevented. It frequently happens that
several letters arc sent lo the order
concerning one family. Every precau

mm Good Fellow to one child. If the
number of Good Fellows becomes greater
than . Ihe loyless eblldrcn. however. It
will simply mean that the poor little

construct the canal themselves. But this
complete liberty of action was to bo lim
ited by the muntcnancc of the complete
principle of equal treatment for both
Kngllsh ami United States ships.
The word "neutralization" in the pre
amble of the Hay-Pauncefote treaty is
not confined to belligerent operations, but
refers to the system of equal rights for
which article eight provides. Joint pro
tection and equal treatment are Ihc only
matters alluded to. to which that neu
tralization must refer.
"It certaiulv was not tlic intention of
(he United 'Stnteri government," says
Sir Kdward Grev, "that any responsibility
for tho protection of tho canal should at
tach to them In the future. Neutraliza
tion, therefore, must refer lo the system
of equal rights" , ....
The nolo declares that the situation
created by the substitution of tlic llay
rauncefotc treaty for lho Clayton-Bnl-wer
treaty was Identical with that re
sulting from the boundary waters treaty
of l'J09 between Great Urlttiln and tho
United Slates, which. In brief, provided
that tho boundary waters should ho free
and open to commerce, "applying equally
and without discrimination to tho in
habitants, ships, vessels and boats of
both countries but all such
rules and regulations, all tolls charged
shall apply alike to the subjects or cltl
r.cns of Ihc high contracting parties and
they shall be placed on terms of equality
In the use thereof."
Tt In also asserted that a similar,
though more restricted, provision ap
peared in the treaty of Washington, and
It Is recalled "how strenuously lho United
States protested, as a. violation or equal
rights, against tho system which Canada
had Introduced of a rebate of a large
portion of tho tolls of certain freights on
tho Welland canal and how In the face
of that protest the system was aban
doned." Referring to lho third article of the
iray-1'aunecroto treaty, lho noto points
out flint the Suez canal rules, which tlic
treaty adopts for the Panama canal, Is
that the waterway shall bo free and open
to the vessels of commerce and war of all
nations observing tho rules on terms of
entire equality, so that there shall be
no discrimination against any such na
tion, it Is said that the president's
statement of tho case Is wholly at vari
ance with the real provisions when he
treats tho words "all nations" as ex
cluding the 1 lilted State?, because It had
constructed the canal on Its own terri
tory ami thereby acquired an absolute
right of ownership, Including the right
to allow Its own commerce the use of
the canal upon such terms as it saw
Fail to See Benefit.
"They (the British government) con
sider," says Sir Edward Grey, "that by
Ihe Clayton-Dulwor treaty the Unlled
States surrendered the right to con
struct tlic canal and by the I fay-Pdnnco-folc
treaty they recognized that right on
the footing that the canal should be
open to British and United States ves
sels on terms of equal treatment
If the rules set out in the 1 Jay-r.'auneefotc
treaty secure lo Great Britain no more
than most-favored-natlon treatment, the
value of Ihc consideration given for su
perseding the Clayton-Bulwcr treaty Is
nol apparent to his majesty's govern
ment. Nor is it easy to see In what
way the principle of article VHI. of the
Clayton-Bulwcr treaty, which provides
for equal treatment of British and
United States ships, has been main
tained." Tho argument advanced in the United
Stales .senate that the. words "all na
tions" cnnnol Include the United States,
which would, otherwise, be prevented
from using lis own territory for rcvictual
ing Its warships or landing troops, is
briefly dismissed bv the statement that it
Is completely overturned by a reading of
the liay-Pauncefotc treaty In connection
with the Suez canal conventions. As the
United Stales did not own the canal zone
when the 1 ray-Paunccfote treaty was
made. It did not include the Suez canal
rules, nil It'll recognized the. right of Tur
key, the local sovereign and of "Egypt to
lake such measures ns might bo ncces
sarv for the defense of her possessions.
Sir Edward Grey continues:
"Now that the United Slates has he
come the practical sovereign of the. canal,
his majesty's "government may not ques
tion Its title to exercise belligerent rights
for Its protection."
The next point made is that tho ex
emption of American coastwise shipping
from lolls would violate the undertaking
that the lolls should "bo Just and equit
able," unless the whole volume of ship
ping passing through the canal is taken
Into account, there are no means of de
termining whether the tolls charged upon
any particular vussci represents her fair
proportion of the current expenditures
properly chargeable against I lie canal.
There Is no guarantee that tho vessels
upon which tolls are being levied are not
being made to bear moro than their fair
share of the upkeep. Therefore the Brit
ish insist that all vchfcIs passing through
tho canal, wha lever their dag or charac
ter, shall be taken into account in fixing
the amount of the tolls "
Kegardlng the president's contention
that the effect of the British claim would
be lo prevenL-tbe Unlled States from aid
ing Its own commerce In a wav that all
nations may do. it is Kild thai this is not
so. Equal treatment as specified in the
treaty Is all thai the British government
claim's. Bui it docs not follow that the
United States may be debarred by the
treaty from granting n subsidy to certain
shipping In a particular way. If the effect
would be to impose upon British or other
foreign shippings un unfair share of the
burden of the upkeep of tho canal or to
create a discrimination or prejudice Brit
ish shipping rights.
Supposes a Case.
Therefore, It Is held that the exemp
tion of the American coastwise shipping
as well as of I'nuamau shipping clearly
conlllcts with the tn-aty guarantees ot
equal treatment for Dritlsh and American
ships and that the Interests of foreign
nations would thereby bo seriously tnjurcd
In two respects. First, In 'placing the en
tire cost of the building of the canal upon
foreign vessels, and second, in placing the
American coastwise trade In a preferen
tial position as regards other shipping
Thus, it might be that a cargo Intended
for it ("lilted States port bttyund fh canal
In ell her direction shipped on n foreign
ship, could be sent to Its destination more
cheaply by being landed at a United
Slates port before reaching the canal and
thence forwarded as coastwise trade.
American vessels also may combine for
eign commerce with coastwise, trade,
(hereby entering Into direct competition
with foreign . essels while they retained
the right of free passage through tho ca
nal. These results would fall more se
verely on British shipping than on any
Tho British government does nol read
the section of the Panama cunal act pro
hibiting railroad-owned or trust-owned
ships from using the canal as apnlylng to
or affecting British ships, but it said If
this view Is mistaken, "they must rosnrve
their right to examine the matter fur
ther and to i-aiso such contentions ns may
in conclusion. Sir Edward Grey reiter
ates his government's assertion that the
provision) of the canal act as to lolls Con
flict with British treaty rights and adds:
"But they recognize that many persons
of nolo In tho United States whose opin
ions lire entitled to great weight, hold
I bat the provisions of tho act do not in
fringe Ihe conventional obligations by
which tile United States is bound, and un
der these circumstances they desire lo
state their readiness to submit tho ques
tion to arbitration If the govrnment of
the United Slates would prefer to take
this course. "A reference to arbitration
would be rendered unnecessary If 'the gov
ernment of the United States should be
prepared to take such slops as would re
move tho objections to tho act which his
majesty's government havo stated."

Fiction of Diplomacy.
It is only a fiction of dlplomary to
say that the protest was made known
here only today. The president lias been
awaro of the protest and has been con
sidering it lor some weoks, according to
two of his cabinet officers.
Summarized, this government Is from
tonight officially engaged on tho solu
llon of two questions arlblnt; out of the
First Whether It presents an arbitra
Second Whether the United States
will submit tho matter to arbitration.
There Is good warrant for tho state
ment that Hie stale department will hold
that there is no arbllrablo question in
volved, 110 matter what may bo tlic po
sition taken by tho president. -Vs a
inaltcr of fact, no mattor what the ex
ecutive may do. there can be no submis
sion to Great Britain without tho con
sent of the senate, and lho position of
tho senate may be. clearly sot forth by
the statement of Senator Ciillom. chair
man of Die senate foreign relations com
mittee, as given lo the International
News Service tonight.
It is predicted hero that there can bo
no arbitration of tho question raised by
Sir Edward Grey for these reasons:
First Tho Issuo of free tolls Is one
of tho Internal affairs of the United
Slates!, concerning tho domestic policy of
the. United States.
Second It Is a. question of national
honor and "vital interest."
Third - There Is no treaty between the
United Slates and Great Bii(ain which
obliges the United States jo arbitral n a
question of national honor or of vital in
The duty of tbo state department and
the president, as stated by lho highest
officials tonight, is that the protest of
Sir Edward Grey bo "given due consid
eration" and an answer made. That
course, it. Is staled, is truo of all Im
portant questions which are submitted
by one government to another, and the
fact thai Jhe protest Is being considered
reveals In no way the intention of the
United States as lo Its ultimate disposl
llon. CuIIom's Opinion.
Senator Shelby AI. Cullom, chairman of
the senate foreign relations committee,
"Wo may havo been hasty In the fram
ing of the bill and may have to make
some moro changes, such as aro sug
gested to us by the conditions, but If
we do find it expedient to make such
changes they will be dictated by right
and not at all by flic wishes of the
British government. The question Is not
a matter for arbitration. It Is our own
affair and wo propose fo settle it ac
cording to our own Ideas.
"The suggestion of the foreign office
that we may remedy our lack of support
of our coastwise shipping by a subsidy
Is none of their business. We havo a
rlght to subsidize our vessels If we see
lit. It Is possible that wo may do so,
but whether we do so or not. we will not
consult the British government. J am
very much afraid that we will have some
trouble over this matter and we want
to be careful how wc proceed, but It Is
certain that In whatever steps wo de
cide to take we will be governed en
tirely by what wo consider justice and
right, and we do not rceognlzu lho right
of any foreign glvernnienl to tell us what
course, to pursue. We want to bo fair
to all and we Intend to be so.
"If our present bill Is unjust wc will
make It Just, but our changes, If any.
will be because of our Innate sense of
Justice and not because of any proteHt
from any other country. 1 do not mean
to say that any changes will be mad"
and I do not believe there will, but I

Senator .George Sutherland of Utah, a
member of the senate foreign relations
"TIie British note claims that under
I heir treaty right wc have no business
to let our shlpH go through the canal
free of tolls. I have always been of the
opinion that wo have an absolute right
to permit our coastwise ships to uso the

there is no discrimination in that niralnst
British ships, as they arc -not allowed
to engage In our coastwise trade. This
Is purely a domestic question and for
