5"1- THE SALT LAKE TRIBUNE, TUESDAY MORNING, JANUARY 14, 1913. ' .i;'V

Democrats - and Minority of
Republicans Combine to
Give Five Men Most Im

APPOINTED BY THEM

ning Surprise to Seely
and Members of His
I (Continued from Pago One.)
twenty-two votes were counted against
him and only twenty for him.
It will bo recalled that, in the bouse
caucus on Saturday night, there were
thirty-one votes enst. Ouo of these,
however, was a prox Of thcso thirt3'
oiio votes Air. Seely received twculy
two for tho speakership and John N.
Henrio of Garfield county received
nine. In yesterday's vote on tho ques
tion of whether or not Speaker Seely
should be a member of tho committee
on. committees, it is tho presumption
that ciftbt Republicans voted with tho
fourteen Democrats against tho
speaker. Tho assumption seems fair.
Also it scorns significant when taken
in conucction with tho caucus vote of
uino for Mr. Hcnric.
"Whether or not 3Ir. Henrio and hit
friends really had anj'thinpr to do with
the little game of freeze-out, of course,
cannot bo positively asserted. Naturally
thcro was much reticence. Mr. Henrio a
onl3- comment was that tho action
seemed to "bo a step in advance.1'
Mr. Mahcy Raid his motion for tho
naming of committees by a committee
Instead of by the speaker was In the
Interest of justico.
"I think," ho sold, "that it is the way
to obtain JiiHtlce. I should have made
my motion even though I had known
that no other members wero with me.
Wo must advance. The Republican
party waa whipped throughout tho na
tion because it did not stand for od
mnccd Ideas; and It seems to ma that
the Republicans here In Utah ought to
wake up to the situation and adopt sonic
The sum total of the Democratic coup
Is that the minority In tho house gets
two members of a committee of five
which names tho committees; whereas,
had tho usual custom been followed,
thcro is good reason to believe, the be
lief being based on precedent, that the
minority would have fared not nearly so
well In the matter of committee ap
pointments at the hands of the speaker
as It Is likely to do at the hands of a
commllteo on which It has two capable
and energetic members.
Moreover, yesterday's Democratic
triumph gives tho minority prestige. It
shows thai only a few Republicans arc
needed to vote with it to pass any legis
lation, or, what Is more to the point,
effectively to obstruct legislation of the
"roughshod" class. Therefore, the Dem
ocratic minority takes Its place as a fac
tor In the tenth legislature.
Causes Much Talk.
The day's surprise was the one topic
of converfatlon last night about the
places where the legislators congregate.
V The Democrats naturally were highly
MM elated. They declared that the Rcpubli-
MM cans who voted with them yesterday
Mm would "stick" nnd that by no parliamen
ts tary device could Mr. Seely'a friends rc-
MM sain their lost ground. It was admitted
MM that the "Insurgent" Republicans un-
MM doubtedly were being "labored with" last
MM night, but tho Democratic leaders were
confident that their Republican friends
MM would stand pat.
"Now that the federal bunch Is In the
j process of disintegration," suid "one
MM prominent Democrat, "the day has, gone
MM by when an officeholder can stand in
MM the lobby, crack his whip, and watch the
MM members Jump through the hoop."
MM In the Seely camp there was much pro-
MM found thought given to the question of
MM whether or not there was hope of over-
MM throwing the action of yesterday. Rc-
MM consideration seemed to be out ot the
MM question, because the time for giving no-
MM tico of reconsideration has now expired.
1 The question was aleo discussed of
MM whether or not the house, under the
terms of the Mabey motion, could reject
MM tho committees named by the commlt-
MM tec on committees. It was generally con-
MM ceded that the adoption of the motion
MM gave thc Mabey committee power to
MM name committees that could not be
MM changed except by suspending the rule.
MM as tho motion becamo a part of the rules
MM when a motion prevailed to adopt the old
MM rules amended to conform to the new
j method of committee appointment.
Part of Rules.
Having becomo a part of the rules, the
MM Mabey motion cannot bo suspended In Its
MM operations unless so ordered by a two-
MM thirds vote, which Is thirty. Also the
MM side that won yesterday assorts that its
MM opponents cannot muster a. constltution-
MM -al majority, which Is twenty-three, and
MM inasmuch as the speaker cannot vote cx-
MM cpt in case of a tic, the faction that
MM lost yesterday la. according to the Jlgur-
MM ing of tho victors, left with only twenty-
The chief regret waa that a roll call
MM had not been forced and tho Republicans
who voted with the Democrats compelled
tls? .?n rCprd. As It 1b, no one knows
MM officially which Republicans jumped the
MM arty traces.
Various causes were assigned for the
LM break. Political enemies of Governor
MM spry within the party took credit to
MM themselves becausr. they said, it was a
Hi rebuke to the governor and some of the
MM other state officials, especially certain
MM members of the land board, for their ul-
MM !,CR&,! Interference in the speakership
MM light. Some said Speaker Seely was
MM xhorn of his power because his -prear-
MM ranged lineup of committee appointments

Bamberger, Salt Lake; Bcnnlon. Uintah;
There was a good deal of dlscuBBlon
land much confusion attending the deter
mination of the manner in which tho
members of tho committee should bo
elected. It waa finally decided that they
should bo voted upon in tho order of
their nomination. Thereforo Mabey'a
namo waB first presented. He waa
unanimously chosen. Page was named
with only one vote In opposition. Wil
cox received no votes at all. Welling
was selected with three opposing votes.
Day was unanimously chosen, and then
the speaker's name was presented. On
a rising vote Seely received twenty votes
to twenty-two in opposition. He waa
thereforo defeated. Van Wagoner was
unanimously named. This all-Important
committee, consequently, consists of Ma
bey, Republican; Page, Democrat; Well
ing, Democrat; Day, Republican; Van
Havlncr thus completed the committee,
the names of Bamberger, Bennlon and
nderson were not voted upon; in fact,
these three had been nominated as an
afterthought. This was especially true
of Bamberger. It was tho only effort on
tho part of Salt Lake's delegation to get
to the front.
Governor Is Visited.
A committee of three was named by
the speaker to wait on the senate. Thore
were named on that committee Henrle
of Garfield, Bcnnlon of Uintah and Pago

First Day in the Senate,

ofllcors of the sonato named over
Rules committee of senate which
will make several important
changes in the rules of the senate

will be reduced from thirty-two to
Brevity' marked the organization of the
senate yesterday. Without a hitch the
caucus nominees for tho officers of the
houtfo went through easily. Every mem
ber of tho senate, including the two
Democratic members, voted for tho re
election of President Henry Gardner. For
tho other officers, the sixteen Republican
members were unanimous, while the two
Democratic members voted against them.
The bright spot In the session of the
senate whs the speech of Senator L. M.
Olson of Sanpete, in behalf of two Demo
cratic candidates for employees of the
senate. Mr. Olson said that while his
candidates did noL possess the brilliance
of tho employees proposed by the Re
publican members, they were men of ab
solute honesty. He poked fun at the Re
publicans by saying that thcro were sev
eral qualifications for service in the sen
ate not possessed by either candidate,
neither one being a nicco or a sitcr-ln-law,
nor a nephew or a son-in-law. Mr.
Olson said that nono of his family, save
himself, had become celebrated. After
forty-five years of patient effort, he de
clared, he had risen to a position of such
eminence that he was now enabled to earn
fl a day and to nominate a candidate
for doorkeeper of the senate.
The senate convened at 12 o'clock, and
after organizing and appointing prelimi
nary committees adjourned to meet at
r.-la o'clock this afternoon. Tho meeting
of the senate today will be merely for tho
purpose of adjourning to the house cham
ber to meet In joint session with the
house to hear the biennial message oi
Secretary of State ' David Mattson
called the senate to order. He read the
official list of the members of the senate,
chosen at the recent election as certified
by tho secretary of state. The' oath of
office was then administered to each of
the new senators by Chief Justice W. M.
McCarty. The new senators who were
thus inducted Into office arc Senators
Fern', Ridcout and Cottrell of Salt Lake,
Hansen of Box Elder, Thomley of Da
vis. Wight of Summit, Edgheill of Juab,
Craig of Weber and Eckcrsloy of Wayne.
The roll call of all the members was then
taken, which showed all members pres
ent. The order of business waa then
fixed by a motion of Senator Bonner X.
Smith, which made the selection of a
presiding officer the first duty.
Gardner Is Named.
Benncr X. Smith, after a brief eulogis
tic speech, named President Henry
Gardner for the position of president of
tho senate. The secretary of state called
for further nominations, and there being
none, took a ballot on Mr. Gardner. The
eighteen members of the senate all voted
for the re-election of President Gardner
The temporary presiding officer then
named Senators Craig and Rldeout as an
escort for Mr. Gardner and yielded the
chair to him.
In assuming the position of president
of tho senate for tho third consecutive
session, President Gardner spoke only
briefly. Smilingly, he said he took the
opportunity to extend his sympathy to
the members and hoped that he would
havo theirs in the arduous duties of the
legislature. He disclaimed ability to
couch In words his appreciation of the
honor bestowed on him by his fellow
members, but would let his acts rather
than his words show his appreciation.
The responsibility of membership in the
legislature, the senator said, was an Im
portant one, but from his close acquain
tance with tho new members he was
satisfied that they would Uvo uo to the
trust the people had placed In them. He
expressed the hope that no freak legis
lation or legislation detrimental to the
best interests of the state would be
Senator G. A. Iveraon then offered the
list of employees selected by the Repub
lican caucus as the employees of the
senate. Senator L. M. Olson of San
pete asked to have the list amended to
Include W. K. Burnham of Cache and
E. P. Thomandcr of Sanpete, tho former
as doorkeeper and' tho latter as mes
senger. The senator's speech naming
these two men created great amuse
ment. The amendment was lost, how
ever, the two men receiving only the
votes of Senator Olson and Senator J.
W, Funk of Cache, the two Democratic
members. The officers named at the
Republican cnucUK were then mad the

SIXTY -DAY BILL
IS COMING UP
The adjournment of tho state legisla
ture promptly on tho sixtieth calendar
day of the session will be compelled if a
bill soon to bo Introduced by Senator
Benncr X. Smith becomes a law. Hitherto
tho practice each year has been to stop
tho clock on tho sixtieth calendar day
and to continue in session until all busi
ness has been comploted, which meant
that tho Blxtioth legislative day occu
pied from five to fourtoon calendar days.
Under tho rulings of tho supreme court
tho l'act that tho indorsements of the
acts of tho legislature and tho Journals
of tho houses havo recorded the passage
of these acts of the sixtieth day of the
session is conclusive evidence of the fact
that tho la.ws were enacted within the
sixty-day session provided by tho slate
Senator Smith proposes a law which
will mako the indorsements of the acts
and the journals of tho two houses con
clusive evldcnco of the validity of the
regularity of the enactment of the laws
with the exception of the date of the
passage of the acts and the adjournment
rr t ha Inu-q 'I'hrv nffaft nf (Mo Ian' I u in'
give tho courts the privilege of going I
behind the records of the two houses in
determining these important factors. As
a result, every act of the legislature to
be valid must have been passed prior
to the conclusion of the sixtieth calcndai !
day. All acts of tho session passed sub
sequent to that time will be invalid tin
der the bill. Irrespective of the subter
fuge of stopping the clock.
In case all the important business of
the session has not been disposed of
prior to tho completion of the sixtieth
day, the governor may call a special ses
sion pf the legislature to complete It. Tho
special session-would pormit or the pay
ment of the senators their per diem so
long as the session continued. Under
the present law the members are paid
only for sixty days, no matter how long
tho session continues thereafter.
CHANGE IN RULES
TO BE CONSIDERED
Soveral important changes In tho rules
of the senate will probably be recom
mended by tho rules committee named
yesterday by President Henry Gardner.
Tho committee consists of Senators W.
X. Williams, L. B. Wight and Joseph
Eckerslcy, and the members of the com
mittee are already at work formulating
the rules of the session.
Chief among the changes In the rules
of tho senate will be tho reduction of the
number of the standing committees of
the senate from thirty-two to seventeen.
Tho work of several of the committees
will be consolidated and an effort will
be made by the president to name the
same members on different committees
In order that committee meetings may
not conflict. The reduction of tho num
ber of committees gives one chairman
ship to each senator, exclusive of the
president. The membership of the various
committees will be chosen by the presi
dent as soon as the rules committee re
ports. Another Important change will be that,
six senators of the eighteen may compel
any bill to be reported out of commit
tee. Hitherto the rule has been that a
majority of the senate Is necessary to
command a report by tho committee.
Several other minor changes will be
made in the rules. It is probable that the
rules committee will report on Wednesday.

SHOOTS SELF AFTER
Donald Jadwin Commits
Crime in Presence of Horri
By International News Service.
SAX FRAXCISCO. Jan. 13. Donald
P. Jadwin, son of a wealthy Brooklyn,
X. T. druggist, tonight nhot and killed
his beautiful young wife, Mrs. Mlnnlo
Van Borgen Jadwin, then sent a bullet
through his own head, inflicting a wound
that caused his death two hours later.
Tho shooting occurred under the most
dramatic circumstances. Mrs. Jadwin,
who had ecparated from her husband a
week ago. was staying at the home of
her grandmother. Mrs. Anna Bauer, 2,"3
Pacific avonue, where a dinner parly in
her honor was being given. Tho guests,
a dozen in number, wire seated around
the dinner tablo when Jadwin, un
announced, entered the dining room.
Without u word, ho rushed up to his
wife, who waa sitting between her grand
mother, Mrs. Bauer, and her mother,
Mrs. Louiso Van Bergen.
"LInw are you, Minnie?" he cried, ns
he threw both arms around her neck
and began kissing hor. Then, suddenly
releasing hor, he stepped back and be
fore any of the gucsta could divine his
Intentions, he drew a revolver from each
of his overcoat pockets and began shoot
ing. Two shot3 were fired from each of the
revolvers. The first two went crashing
into the dishes on tho table, causing the
guests lo run screaming from tho room.
With the thlrcl shot, Jadwin stepped up
close to his wife and placing, tho revol
ver against her breast, he sent a bullet
through her heart.
With tho first shot, Mrs. Jadwin at
tempted to make her escape, but tho
frenzied man blocked her way and she
stood helplessly beforo him.
As Mrs. Jadwin dropped lo the floor
of tho dining room dead, Jadwin placed
the revolver ho held In his right hand
against hla own head and fired the
fourth shot, lie fell across tho body of
his dead wifo with a Jagged hole In the
side of his head.
When tho police arrived It was found
that Jadwin, though morlallv wounded,
was still alive. He waa taken to tho
Liino hospital, whom he died two hours
later without regaining consciousness.
Jadwin, who camo horc from tho east
two years ago, was employed as audi
tor for tho General Petroloum company,
with offlcos In San Ttafacl. Mrs. Jadwin,
who before hor marriage was Miss Min
nie Van Bergen, was prominent socially
on both sides of tho bay. Prior to her
marriage she was a leader In San Fran
cisco's younger exclusive sot. Sho mar
ried Jadwin last June and up to the
time of their separation a week ago It
was generally believed tholr domestic
life was an ideal one.
Mrs. Bauer, tho grandmother, and
Mrs. Van J3ergcn, tho dead glrl'w
mother, aro prostrated over tho affair
and no statement concerning the trou
ble between the Jadwlns could be so
cured tonight. Mrs. Jadwin was 10 years
old and Jadwin 25.

Protesting that ho would use the same

Many demagogues and scoundrels use

t Mr. Jackson was about to reply when
friends pointed out that Mr. Moon had
used his criticism In a general nen.se and

"This tobacco and snuff habit Is a per

the uso of playing cards and chips had
