HM memorials, and the other half rests with
JHBJ the committee on resolutions.
BH Income tax doings began In the house
HI when Welling of Box Elder Introduced
HBJ a ratlncatlon resolution. At the proper
BHJ tlmo he moved tho suspension of the
HJ rules and tho. passage or the resolution.

LAW 15 DESIRED
Anderson of Sanpete, chairman ot the
house commltloo on Hvostock, yester
day Introduced a bill which rewrites the
present law relating to sheep.
Tho now hill, also amends tho present
law In a few matorlal Instances, In addi
tion to changing U arrangoment and
"The measure." said Mr. Anderson,
"is a rowrltlng of tho presont law In such
a way as to conform to tho suggestions
or tho United atatos bureau of animal
industry. This is done in order to pro
ouro a uniformity In tho laws of this
and neighboring states affecting Bheep.
Several of the adjoining mates have al
ready adopted the uniform Jaw.
"One provision dlfforlng from tho pres
ont law is that it gives the state board
of sheep commissioners enlarged power in
tho matter of preventing the spread of
scabies. It provides that if an owner
refusos to dip Ills sheep the commission
may do so and tho cost Ik to bo charged
against tho owner.
"Another provision gives the federal In
spectors tho authority to quarantlno af
fected ."hcep in this stato temporarily.
Undor the present system much time Is
lost in quarantining. It Is now required
that cases of Infected hrrdH must first
bo reported to the slate hoard of sheep
commissioners and that board In turn
orders the quarantine. TJndor tho pro
visions of our bill tho federal inspectors
lay tho quarantine at once and then no
tifv the slate board, ho that the herds
arc Isolated from the time of tho discov
ery of the disease."
ONLY ONE WORD
CHANGED IN BILL
A peculiarity about H. B. Xo. 69. in
troduced vestcrday by Krlobel of Salt
Lake, by request, Is that It ro-cnacts
about 5000 words of tho present law In
order to change a single word. The
change is-that It grants cities power to
Increase their special tax levy for street
improvements from one-half to one per
cent. The bill probably will be so al
tered a3 to make It an amendment to one
section only, an arrangoment. made possi
ble by the system of segregation adopted
since the original laws wcro passed. In
that event, necessity for the re-enactment
of the G00O words should be obvl-
a A companion bill, also by ICriebel. by
request, provides that cities may levy a
lax of not to exceed ten mills on the
dollar to open, improve and repair
A measure, probably a joint resolution,
will be presented In tno house today that
is likely to raise a good deal of a stir.
The resolution. In effect, wJM declare It
to be contrary to the dignity of any
elective slate official to ho connected
with any stock promotion scheme. Also,
tho resolution will declare it against the
same dignity for such official to be ac
tively Interested in any Institution ovor
which the state has supervision or con
trol, or power of inspection or examina
tion by reason of the terms ot the char
ter of 3uch institution.

to volco their ro.Huntment of statements
made lust week by riyrum Stewart and
Mr. Wilcox to tho effect that a train of
Immorality hud followed In the wake of
the raoes and that, In brief, tho young
people of Davis county, and of Farming
ton particularly, had been reduced to a
grievous state of evil on account of tho
race track at Lagoon.
Messrs. Wilson, Duynr.a and Cottroll
said ihev came boforo tho committee in
ciarncst protest against, such a slander
upon the people of Farmlngton. They
denied In every Instance and particular
that the young men and young women of
Farmlngton were Immoral and declared
that, on the contrary, those young people
were Just ae moral as any that woro to
bo found. ,
Tho delegation resented In unmlstak
ablo terms tho Imputation publlshod In
some newspapers that a veritable wave
of debauchery came as an attendant upon
race meetings and that the young men
and women of Farmlngton had fallen
victims thereof. The delegates declared
that thev were not before the commit
too to state whether they wanted gam
bling or not. They wore thorn. they
said, to uphold the fair name of tho peo
ple of their community against slander
Moreover, the delegation resented tho
statement mado laat week that Simon
Bamberger, president of the Salt Lako
& Ogdon railroad, and owner of Lagoon,
where tho Lagoon race track Is situated,
controlled the elections at Farmlngton.
They said there were but few employcos
