Bakers Hit.
Quotio an article In the Xcw York
Globe as to the refuse aged by bakers,
such aa -vonny currants and raisins, rot
ten criers, bad nuts and feremented fruit,
ho said he had ascertained that tho same
practice was being' followed by some bak
ers in Utah. The present hij;h prices,
ho said, were an induccmont to the bak
ers to commit this sort of fraud.
Ho said ho had often been asked why i
his department did not confine its ef
forts to instnictliiff the people rather than
prosecuting thom and replied that -ivhllc
the people had been instructed for many
years before thc food bureau was cre
ated, ho found when he assumed office
Uiat there had been practically no
changes In dairying methods In thirty
years. Since that time there has been
an incrense In efficiency of 100 per cent,
he declared.
He told thc farmers u-ho used prepared
foods that they wore sclllnjr their wheat
from 50 to SO cents per bushel and then
paying at the rate of 524 a bushel for it
when it was returned In the form of pre
pared food. There was moro nourishment,
he said, in four ouncen of wheat gTonnd
In a coffee mill than there was in a whole
package of prepared food. Ho urged
farmers to have their daughters trained
In tho art of preparing these dainties,
rather than have them taught accom
plishments and thcu buy the -prepared
article.

Things tiortaining to dairying wero tho
topics of discussion at the farmcra'

of that important industry wero treated.
A. K. Kisser of the United States de

buildings and tho site.
Professor McNatt discussed feeding
for milk and U. H. arcCartney talked on
feeding dairy calves. A most Inter

dricks of Richmond, who told what up-to-date
dairying had done for his town.
Ho pointed out that whllo the avcrago
yield of butter fat among tho cows of
the state is 150 pounds per annum, and
the avcrago yield in Cache county Is 164
lxninde, In Richmond, whero careful at
tention has been given to breeding, the
average is 254 pounds. According to ZUr.

GOVERNORS OF

TO AVERJ BLOW
Rule Fut Into Effect for Pur
pose of Preventing Manip
ulation of Securities in
Wall Street.
LEGISLATURE MAY
SOON TAKE ACTION
Seven Bills Introduced for the
Purpose of Correcting- Evils;
Governor Sulzcr Will
Proceed With Caution.
By International News Service.
NEW YORK", li'cb. o. -Manipulation
of securities on thc New York
stock exchange was dealt a blow
today when tho governing corn
mi tteo of tho exchaiigo held a special
meeting and passed a resolution that
any member giving or executing orders
for tbo purchase or sale of securities
involving no change of ownership will
bo punished by .suspension for a period
not exceeding twelve months. The
resolution was adopted unanimously
and goes into effect immediately.
Ever tiiuco tho proseut agitation
against certain dealings on the ex
change became pronounced it has time
and time again been said that tho in
stitution would not be able to pass any
rules curbing manipulation, but the
committee "hit tho nail on tho head"'
when they passed the following resolu
tion: "Jiesolved, that no stock exchange
member of a stock exchange firm shall
give, or with knowlcdgo execute orders
for thc purchase or sale of securities
which would involve no change of
ownership.
"The punishment for this offeusc
shall bo as prescribed in section 8 of
article 23 of tho constitution regarding
fictitious transactions. "
Suspension the Penalty.
Section S of article 2o of thc consti
tution reads as follows;
"ITictitious transactions aro forbid
den. Any member violating this rule
shall bo liable to suspension for a
period not orceeding twelve mouths.''
Manipulation has been tbo greatest
evil laidi at tho door of tho stock ex
change, and it ha3 done more than any
thing else to arouso public criticism
against tho institution. Criticism has
always been loudest following such
pyroteebnical displays as occurred in
Columbus and Hocking Coal aud Coke,
Eock Island and California Petroleum.
Today's action is regarded as one of
tho greatest steps tnken by the authori
ties of tbo exchange in immediately
proving dealing in securities.
Thc meeting of the governing com
mittoo held today was one called
especially for tho receipt of the com
mittee's report.
Statement Issued.
The governors, after considoriug tho
committee 'a findings, issued tho follow
ing statement:
For Nonin w!ika committees havo
been at work upon tho rules of the
exchange for the purpose of deter
mining what changes or additions can
btt mado to prevent operations and
transactions In securities on tho ex
change which has been uriticdacd.
Tho conclusions of tho committoes
nro to be submitted from timo to
time, as soon a.i they aro formulated,
fo the governing commltteo for its
action.
The subject that has principally
occupied public attention la what Is
called thc manipulation of securities.
Tho commtttoe having that subject
in charge mado Us report respecting
it at a special meeting of the govern
ing oonimiltco held this afternoon.
This roRolmion has beon framed,
after much consideration, in tho be
lief and expectation that it will be
efficack'Uc In preventing manipula
tion. Tho object of the rule, as i ap
parent from its language, is to pro
hibit the giving of orders which shall
not result in a charts o of ownership,
or tho execution of tfuch ordona by
brokers on tho exchange with knowl
edge of tho fact that ther would bo
no such change.
It 1? proposed to take further ac
tion in olhor matters nt subsequent
meetings,

Miss Moreland Is Freed!
"Preposterous," Says Rival of
Solomon When Asked if
He'll Marry Divorcee.
By Intel national Xcws Service.
BALTIMORE. Md., Feb. 3. Miss
Marjoric Moreland, the wife of
Charles N. Doughty, scoured a
divorce from her husband today
on tho ground of desertion. Miss More
land told Judge Cox, through" Herman
L- "Roth, a Is'ew Vork. attorney, that
Doughty left hor in July. 100-1, and
had not supported or returned to her
since.
With the granting of this divorce'
there probably will be an end to the
$25,000 suit instituted by Doughty
agaiusfc "Xal Goodwin, for alienating
Miss Morula ud's affections from her
husband. "With his desertion in 100-1
proved aud hor me.cting with Goodwin
established as having occurred but two
years ago, it ia thought that Doughty
will now drop his suit.
it is said that now sho is freed from
the matrimonial tics thuh have hitherto
prevented her marrying Goodwin, Miss
Moreland will become tb,o latest wife
of tho actor. Thus the way. is opened
for Goodwin to re-cuter tho race ho
commenced years ago with King Solo
mon and King Tloury V.ITT.
Took Name of Moreland.
"When sue went, on tho stago about
four years ago she took tho namo of
Moreland. Her tnaideu name wuh Mar
.iorie Parrott. and sho is a member of
an old Maryland family. One of her
great uncles designed the Parrot guns
used by thc arm" during the civil war.
Whenever the possibility- of hor mar
rying Goodwin has been mentioned in
Misfi Moreland 's presence, sho has
merely replied "Xonscnsc. " Not uutil
Doughty filed his alienntion suit
against Goodwin was it known that
Miss Morejmd was married.
About two years ago, shortly after
Edna Goodrich divorced Goodwin, Miss
Moreland n"ie(i n'ra 38 leading
woman. She has been in Goodwin's
company over since. They wore io
havo been co-stars in a lx)s Angolcs
stock company, but Goodwin's acci

John - Reed Is Awarded Less
Than Tithe of Sum Asked
From Man He Blames.
What is said to be tho first case In
the history of tho state where a jury
' has actually placed a cash value on tho
affect Ions of a woman, occurred in
tho district court yesterday when tho
Jury lhat heard thc alienation suit of
John Reed against Alfred Jensen returned
a verdict for JS37 as heart balm for Reed
for the loss of Mre. Heed's love. Reed
sought 510,000 damage".
According to the lawyers jn the case
thero is no record of any previous aliena
tion suit in The Utah court. Breach of
promise suits havo been frequent, but
never beforo has a man sought tho salve
of gold for loss of his wife In Utah.
The Jury pondered tho matter for many
hours. Tho cnjso was argued and sub-1
milted at 2 o'clock Tuesday afternoon
after a week of testimony taking. Iatc
Tuesday night thc Jury had faljed to
agree and at 10 o'clock yesterday morn

Judge ordered the jurors to ponder a
little while longor over the matter. Tills

Bernard Stewart, counsel for Jenson,
said yesterday that he would move for a
new trial within the next few days and
In caso tho motion was overruled he would
appeal to the supreme court.

Reed in tho action. Oscar TV. Carlson,

THE house of Vcprcscntativcs ol fljfl
the Utah legislature yesterday Sfl
gavo its first real oratorical jflg
pori'ormauce of tbc souson. ll
was a success. Most ovorybody had mS
aomcthing to say on bookmaking and 98
puolscllieg, aud when tho last word BM
had been said for thc day, the Mnbcy CUH
bill, iu almost its original form, went M
through without opposition. The vote SB
Incidentally the irorald-Jv'cpublican 1M
carao in for a bitter denunciation by EH
Morris of Washington and i'or a stern kH
robukc by Kricbel of Salt Lake. Both ffH
of these mcmbors declared that the HI
Horald-liopublicau had published fale- jH
hoods about their intents, their wordi QBj
and their acts. The remarks of Mr. Hi
Morris might be likened unto "stem HH
winders. " 3H
As tho successful bill uoVr stands it 9H
prohibits poolselling and bookmaking HH
everywhere, but it docs not prohibit HH
hotting, except in so far as it prohibits iH
it by thc clause which says that any HM
person who 4 'aids or abets' bookmak- 9bI
iug is guilty on the same ground thot oR
a bookmaker is guilty.
Can Bet "Orally'
Thus, what is known as fornl bet-
ling1" is IcTt unfettered, unjoss th HH
courts put a construction on the law jjHf
other than that placed upon it by the yW
house mcmbors. All betting was sought H8
to be put under the ban by an amend BH
racnt which mado betting o any kind Hi
on any kind of sport a misdemeanor, lfl
This amendmont was offorcd by the flHI
judiciary committee. It was stricken IH
out beforo tho bill waa put on its final fH
in encompassing the death of tbc Hi
amendment those members who. for the HQ
sako of convenient distinction, are
known as r'country members," witu HH
few exceptions, maintained that tho lir- Hjj
tlo bots that were mudo at thoir local jH
fairs and horac races were not a wide- HB
spread evil aud consequently such bet 9H
ting should not be prohibited.
Thc country members snid tho aim of
tho legislation was to glva heed to the
cry of Salt Lake and Duvi counties for
relief from a mon.-uous evil, found in fHH
bookmaking, and they hastened to rr- , H
spoud tu that appeul. nH
Much Hair-splitting. EH
During thc discussion there uas much HH
talk about the responsibility of a stake- HH
holder. Many of the members were In- HH
cllned to placo a very line construction H8
on tho ucl, aud in that way arrived at HH
thc conclusion that a stakeholder who HH
derived any benefit whatever as a -reward H
for his services would bo guilty of a fcl- H
