'Fistic Encounters Narrowly
Averted During Considera
tion of Mabey's Bill.
Special to The Tribune.
ttAJtailNGTON". Feb. 1. At a meetlns
of tho Ji'arminerton Commercial club to
night lo discuss tho proposed Mabes'
anti-racing: bill, the argunienl at times
became so heated that there waa serious
danger of personal encounters. How
ever, tho coolness of some of those pres
ent kept tho argument from developing:
to fistic encounter and the thirty mem
bora present went on record as opposed
to tho adoption of (he bill which would
sound the rleath knell of the race track
and gambling1. Tho voto stood 26 to 4.
Tho four who favored tho bill were the
members of the 'committees whlcb re
cently mot with tho house judiciary com
mittee to discuss tho measure. Tho
minority Insisted last night that If tho
full membership of 100 of the club bad
been present that tho voto would bavo
favored the abolition of tho race track
Opposed by Mayor.
"Mayor H. P. H'aynen, -prho held an of
ficial position at "Lagoon last summer,
was tho first npeaker to oppose the pass
age of tho bill. Ho declared that the
committee from Farmlneton which had
met with the house judiciary committee
bad misrepresented the centlmcnt of the
town when they favored tho bill. Ho
said that they had assailed the honor and
virtue of tho youn?r women of Fannlnsr
ton. Ho declared that while tbo peoplo
must expect move vice with the race
track ordstlng, that since It had already
been established and- had proved of ffrcat
I financial benefit to the community, It
would be improper for Farralngton to
work for its abolition.
j Former Sheriff L,. IS. Abbott urged the
l Commercial club to go upon record as
opposed to the bill, as did several othor
speakers. Tho committee which met the
' Judiciary committee recently was repre
j sented by Iiyrum Stewart. Ho declared
that tho solid citizens of Farmlnston
woro ln favor of the bill to abolish gam
bling on account of the bad moral offect
it had upon both Fannlnylotj and the
surrounding communities. A. 1,. Clark
and "S". G. Smith, also members of tho
committee, defended the stand it had
After four hour3 of debate a motion
was passed .to appoint a committee to
call upon the judiciary committee of tho
house Monday to "oxplaln tho true status
of conditions In Furmtngton." The com
mittee appointed oonsiotcd of "Robert Mil
ler, president of tho Commercial club; E.
A. Cottrell, David Tj. lllce. David Hess
and Mayor Daynes. "WTiHe wording of
the resolution did not indicate which
stand the committee would take, the per
sonnel is considered to bo r clear Indi
cation that it will oppose tho measure.
Tho minority, consisting of the members
of tho other committee, deolarod after
tho session that their side of the case
would also be brought otrongly before
the honso committee next week.

Alarmed by rumors that his child

has four policomon constantly on guard
outside his house. Ho is not lacking in
personal courage, but hi3 beautiful wife
has urged the authorities to take ample
precaution against the suffragists. The
Churchill baby is invariably followed
by plain clothes men from Scotland
Yard when the nurse takos the child out
for an airing.
Prirao Minister Asquith objects
strongly to having a body guard, but
the police captain is not at all satisfied
with tho promises oL.tho suffragettes
to respect human life. He has pointod
out that some of the younger and more

A comparison of tho facts and .fig

that all, estimates closely harmonize
in thoir avorago porecutago of yearly

testimony of Salt Lake's o award

of 1100,000 in population will be reached
and iu all likelihood passed 'by a good
margin by tho timo tho next govern
mcnt census is taken seveu years hence.
The records of tho auditing depart

company will show that more than 1G00 jJ
new lighting connections wero made
during tho last year to new dwellings
occupied by new residents, ami that be
tween 1010 and 1912 thero was an in
crease of 2420 lighting connections for
new resident users. It is carefully and.
conservatively figured iu tho records
that tho increase in new resident users
alone at tho close of 1012 was easily,
17 per cont over tho year 1910. On this,
basis, then, the average yearly increase
was SVj. per cent.
