"TALK OF BUG
I GREAT AUDITORIUM
Business Men Think Well or
Plan for Convention Hall
HAS BEEN DISCUSSED
Plan Revived When Liberty
Theater Leases Tract in
Center of Block;
Has a plan been launched whereby
Salt l,akc Ik to have a -great public con
tention hall In the middle of one of the
ellv's central business blocks, to which
wide and elaborate arcades will lend
from four directions.
The question was freely asked In busi
ness circles yesterday a a result of the
announcement that tho Liberty Theater
company bad leased a largo tract In the
center of the block bounded by Main
and .State streets and Second South and
Third South streets, upon which one of
the largest and tlniist moving picture!
theaters In the world will be built at a
cost of 3130,000 or m6rc. and with a
sealing capacity of S000.
Had Planned Auditorium.
Investigation yesterday showed that
prominent interests had planned to build
a reat auditorium In file center of tho
block, to seat. 7000 or moro persons, and
to which four thirty-foot arcades would
lend, from Main. State. Second South
nnd Third South streets, respectively.
Tho rights of way for three of these
arcades, it was learned, had practically
been secured, but the deal lo get the
fourth right of way fumbled because tho
tlpratcr plan included tho property de
sired. It Is understood that a. plan was then
devlsud, whereby the arcades could be
built, and also Iho theater, but ilnal ar
rangements could not be closed.
Say Plan Is Feasible.
nuslness men yesterday said that the
arcade and convention hall plan way en
tirely feasible, although It would require
some time for successful establishment.
They pointed out that Salt. Lake's busi
ness blocks wero larse, enough to be cut
into four parts through the establish
ment of arcades, which would open the
way for profitable use of ground In the
center of the city's big business blocks,
at. the same time providing new and val
uable space for stores and shops of vari
Those who wero concerned in the ar
cade and conentlon hall plan yesterday
said that It was temporarily given up,
but did not deny that (he scheme might
eventually be put Into effect. ,
The projected new theater will have
a seating rapacity of 3000. larger than
any local struclure aside from tho tab
ernacle, which Is owned by the Mormon
church, and which cannot be engaged
without special arrangement in which
the participation of the tabernacle choir
Is ono of the conditions.
Prominent business men, who do not.
care to be quoted at this lime, call at
tention to the fact that tho lease to the
Liberty Theater company is for twenty
years; to the seating capacity of the pro
jected theater, to Its location, and to
tho feasibility of establishing- arcades to
it from the four bounding' streets, and
then casually remark:
"The convention hal and tho arcades
are needed; they would bo a modern ad
vance nnd convenience to tho city, and
without doubt are destined soon to

GIFTS TO EMPLOYERS
Practice of Christmas Presen
tations Meets With Strong
FAMILIES COME FIRST
Correspondent Sa.ys Work
ers, as Rule, Can Ill-Afford
Tlic Ytiletido season a;rain approacbes
aud many employees iu different estab
lishments undoubtedly aro onco more
studying over tho problem of whether
or not they should present an appro
priate Christmas gift to their employer
or employers, and, if so. just how they
aro going; to do it.
Tn previous years tlic rpiestiou has no
doubt perplexed a great many, and will
no doubt perplex a great many iu years
to come. Diversified opinions are ex
pressed on the snbjoct, but tho great
majority of busiuess inon who employ
men and women in their concerns, declare-
that tho presentation, of. Christmas
gifts by employees to employers is,
technically speaking, au impropriety.
This, they set forth, is not because
tho Ytiletido spirit, is not a beautiful
quality, deserving of high praise and
esteem, nor because the motivo ihat in
spires tho presentation is not. fully ap
preciated, but rather because the mut
ter, after all. dwindles down to a cola
question of dollars and cents.
An Employer's Views.
Tho following letter, received by Tho
Tribune from one of its subscribers,
who is an ciiiployor of a. largo number
of persons, offers nil interesting' side of
Is it proper Tor employees to buy
Christmas gifts for their employ
ers? Tho question admits of de
bate iu a general way, but after
seutimont has had He cxprcssiou,
and all the beautiful phases of
Christmas and its spirit have been
given their deserving attention and
tribute, it strikes me that there can
be but ono answer no.
Tn the first place, employees have
thoir own immcdialo families and
relatives or frionds to look after.
It is properly within their pru
dence, if they have lho means, to
give what, thoy can to charitable
causes, thus helping to bring a
happy Christmas to those who
might otherwise awaken to au
empty stocking. Such acts are
commendable, audi thoro should bo
more of Mi cm the world over.
Effect of Giving.
IU:t when these persons have
been cared for properly, and tho
question of prcscufiug u gift tq the
employer arises, there is a decidod
ly new aspect. Tho employee,
as a general rule, has littlo means
left to purchaso what might bo con
sidered. a suitable gift for tho em
ployer. If tho gift is given, it is
accepted with appropriate thanks
and appreciation of tho Yulotide
sentiment; but the employer would
"fire-' tho man or wumati who
gavo provocation just as quickly
iis though the gift had not been
presented. Tt seldom builds an un
breakable chain of familiarity or
friendship between tho persons con
cerned. On tho other hand, the employer,
as a rulo, has the means to buy
vihul ho ncedt:, and his own family,
relatives and friends muko him.
Christmas gifts as they desire. A
gift iu accordanco with the means
of a hard-working clerk, factor
girl or other cmploj-eo probably
wonld not call forth particular at
tention, or if it were olegatit or
attractive enough to do so, tho em
ployer probably would begin, to
wonder where the giver got tho
Personally. T. advise against cm- I
ployccs buying gifts for their em-
jdoyors. Jn ni3r own oxpcrieuco I
have received such gifts, have ex
pressed my thanks with sincerity,
und then the pressure of business
has taken further thought of the
gift from mind.
If our clerks and factory work
ers, or ar.- employees of our
great industrial and commercial
world, havo a little to spare out
side of what it require to provido
for their families or to mti.kc
proper gifts in the realm of their
immediate loved ones, relatives and
friends, let them charitably donate
to the poor, fill full tho empty
stocking of tho orphan or maimed
-child, or otherwise lend what aid
they can. to charitable Christmas
causes iu tho city.
Tim employer will make out
somehow. Ho could evcu go a step
further than some do. and show his
appreciation of valuable and faith
ful services rendered by his at
taches, and, having the means, be
stow Home gift or token of that
feeling upon them.

lania and cross the ocoan to his old
home in South Wales.
For two months there will be a de
cidedly conspicuous void in Salt Lake
because of the departure. The Icsisla
turo will convene as usual on the sec
ond Monday in .January f but it won't)
be like the convening ot all other leg
islatures .si nets Utah became a slate,
because Fred Price will not be on the
job to -welcome, to the city tbo states
men from the "cow conn lien." Po
litical discussions will wauo and. bo en
tirely devoid of interest, for no po
litical discussion can long endure if
Fred Price is not at tho exact center
of it. 7hysically and verbally.
Thirty years ago a small trans
Atlantic steamer brought "Fred W. Prion
to America. Fred Price was then a
youngster, but he promptly got into U'o
swim so fast that America begau to
wonder how she 'bad gotten aloug be

Fred Price alwavs creates a liiir stir
wherever ho goes' aud tho seismographs
ot tho country are all attuned to catch

The departure of Fred Price, serious
ly considered, means the temporary loss
to Salt Lake of a royal good felfow.'a
politician who is in politics solely for
the loVc of the gamo and not for per
sonal reward, a man who is ouo of the
best; known and best Jovcd in tho state.
His friends wish him bon voyage, a
Merry Christmas and a speedy and safe
return to Utah.
