Harris Against Bill.
John V. Smith, a former state senator,
said he thought it would be very unde
sirable to kill horse-racing in Utah, ass
tho bill under consideration certainly
would do. and lie urged that It be amend
ed. t'hlcf of Police B. T. Grant strongly

community and that tho traffic carried
with It many undesirable porHona. Crim
liitile;, he said, always follow the races.
T. lfc I7ohnan, chief deputy secretary
of .state, two twice a member of the legis
lature, suggested thnt the Maboy bill be
unfavorably reported and that a substi
tute bo offered. Mr. Dolman said 11. bill
could be prepared within a few days
that would meet every objection to the

Urged Amendments. N
Sheriff Fred "Davis of Davis county
opposed the bill on (ho ground that horso
raclng was a legitimate sport and should
be encouraged, under proper safeguards,
rather than killed.
Mr. Maboy spoke. In r.upport of his
measure. He snfd ihc bill wan a copy

Tho committee took no action Yester
day. There is a deposition on tlio part
of the committee mombcrs to give the
subject careful consideration. What
ever is done, there can be no question
that the poolroom will be legislated out of

over Salt 7akc'a chances of holding on to

to say about Salt L,ake and tho 1013 con

Tho railroads havo not acceded fc

tions aro indispensable. It Is already
too late to secure as largo a mooting
an Is desirable and as easily might
havo been. It takes 3000 to H000 from
