RELATING TO SIGNS
City Commission Takes Ac
tion in Order to Forestall J
Possible Litigation. j
To lorestall possible litigation over
tho electric 'aipu board controversy the
city commissioners passed an amend
ment to the present building ordiuance
yesterday afternoon under which, a
bond is required for every sign of any
sort suspended over the sidewalk or
streets in tho business district. Only
roof signs are exempt.
This ordinance has boen included
among tho book of revised ordinances,
which have not yot boen finally acted
upon. To meet the emergency arising
out of the protests of several local
business men against putting up a bond,
while the ordinance does not call for
one, tho commissioners decided to tako
the proposed ordinance from the book
and pass it at once as an emergency
Soon after the first of the year the
building inspector, on instruction from
the commission, issued a general call
to all ownors of signs, ordering them
to make application for permission to
maintain their signs. Theso applica
tions were made conditional upon the
' filing of a voud varying from Si 000 to
$10,000. Manv protests have boon re
ceived since the ordor went forth and
tho possibility of tho city bein;j suod
Tho ordinance passed yesterday be
comes effootive February 15, "after
which no signscan be maintained with
out a bond.
Tho commissioners put a definite
quietus yesterday on the importunings
of thoae enterprising persona who havo
been attempting for the 'past several
months to Boll tho city sites for pub
lic markets and convention halls. Such
an offer from A. Bichtor, pronosing
that the city purchase for .$75,000" prop
erty on Second East between Third and
Fourth South streets, was ordered filed,
with tho comment that the city is not
in the market for real estate for such
purposes and has no intention for the
present at least of establishing a pub
lic market or building a convention
Because .March is a windy month the
Intermountain Automobile Show asso
ciation will havo to file a .5000 bond
with tho city if it oreetfl a temporary

First South street during he automo
bile show next month The permit for
the ?ign was granted Mterda wtli

UTAH ELECTRIC CLUB
Electricians of Salt Lake Will
Give Unique Entertain
ment in This City.
The Utah Electric club, composed of
prominent men of the electric industry
in this city and atato, is proparing for
a great electric show that will eclipse
anything of its kind witnessed in the
west. Although no definite date has
been decided upon, the event will prob
ably take placo in tho kite summer or
The matter was discussed at some
length at yesterday's regular weekly
luncheon and banquet of the club, at
tended by more than 100 members and
guests at the Commercial club. The
feature of the programme was an in
teresting address, delivered by At
torney A. J3. Irvine on the subject,
"Engineering Contracts and Specif i
caTious." Following this address the matter of
the electric show was generally dis
cussed and was unanimously decided
upon as of practical, business and edu
cational value to the industry and the
public at large.
Last year ixn electric show was of
fered by the Sons of Jove, which club
has now been "virtually absorbed by
the newly-organized "Utah Electric club.
Tho wonderful exhibitions of the devel
opment of electricity and the part is
is playing on an increasing scale in tho
world of business and science and mod
ern civilization, as displayed at that
time, will becomo dim in tho blaze of
the show planned for this year, declare

Meeting Is Held at Which
Radical Changes in Law
H. S. JOSEPH PRESIDES
Proposal Is lo Reduce Salaries
and Increase' the Num
ber of Members.
Radical changes In the commission form
of government In cities of the first and
second classes were, discussed last night
at a. meeting of prominent Salt Lake Tic
publlcana and the members of the legis
lature from Salt Lake and Weber coun
ties In thy court room of Judge ID. A.
Rogers at tho city and county building.
Tho plan which will apply both to .Salt
Lake and Ogden is lo elect one commis
sioner from each of the five municipal
wards and a mayor at largo, tho mayor
to have general supervision of the city
government and the veto power. Each
commissioner Is to have a department
of tho city government over which
ho la to have charge and the mayor
Is to have general supervision over
all departments. The offices of city
treasurer, city attorney and city recorder
are to bo mudo elective Instead of ap
pointive, as at present.
Harry S. Joseph presided at the meet
ing and George Wilson acted as secre
tary. All of the Salt Lake and, Weber
county members of the lower house and
Senators Kolly, Craltr, Ferry and Rldc
out were at the meeting. There were
also several members of the Republican
city and executive committees and other
prominent Republicans at the meeting.
Two Bills Considered.
The meeting considered both the
Barnes bill, now pending In the house,
and the Craig bill, now before the sen
ate. Several amendments to these bills
wero proposed and discussed, but no
agreement reached. An effort will bo
made to amalgamate the I wo bills and
agree on a measure that will be satis
factory to tho people of all of the cities
which arc reached by tho bill.
The Barnes bill iu its original form
was optional with the people and pro
vided for a special election before the bill
became effective. It was practically
agreed to eliminate this feature and make
tho form of government mandatory.
The recall feature of the bill will prob
ably also be eliminated. It was sug
gested that the governor Is strongly op
posed to the recall and would probably
veto the measure If it contained that pro
vision. To obviate the necessity of a re
call, the term of the mayor and com
missioners are made two years that there
may bo frequont cloctionn. Under the
proposed plan, the terms of tho present
city officers will be terminated on the
first Monday In January next and the
first election under the now act will take
place next fall.
Salaries will be Teduced to some ex
tent, the salary of a mayor of a city of
the first class to be 53600 and mayor of
a socoud class to be J1S0O. Tho bond
of the cily treasurer Is not to exceed
$350,000, In any event. The bond of the
mayor and of each commissioner is to
Changes will be made in the bills to
conform to the suggestions mado at tho
meeting and the amended hills will he
considered at. another meeting to be held
some time next week. The bills will also
be discussed next Monday forenoon at
a special meeting of tho senato commit
tee on county and municipal corporations.
CIGARETTES IT 1
PROM BANQUET IH
Elimination Is the Result of
Action Taken by Miss
Lucy Van Cott.
There will be no oigareites on tho menu
of tho "prom" banquet to be given by
tho University of Utah sorority girls.
They may havo their Turkish decora
tions, their Turkish delicacies nnd ovon
their Turkish coBtomes If they desire,
but as for those cork-tlppcd cylindrical
mediums of gradual self-destruction, they
are emphatically and irrevocably ta
boo. Not that the girls desired to smoke the
cigarettes dear, no! The boys aro to
attend the l'eto and It was merely In
tended to provide all tho comforts of a i
dinner for young cut-nps. But this did
not suit Miss Lucy Van Cott, dean of the
university women. She summoned tho
committee on arrangements and Manager
Summer and expressed her disapproval.
And so, to repeat, there are not going to
be any cigarettes on the menu. Perhaps
the lads will smoke, but If they do It
wlll bo their wn tubes of nicotine.
This sorority event will be a feature
of this evening's Junior prom at the
Hotel Utah. Instead of refreshments all
evening, there will be two supper tablea,
one set during the eleventh and tho other
during tho fifteenth dance. Theso dances
are divided Into three parts, so that it
will be possible to serve all present dur
ing the two. "Besides theae two supper
tables, the fraternity and sorority rooms
will furnish punch and other dainties
during the entire evening.
The prom committee spent all day yes
terday nnd will work again today, so that
If things go well the dance will be be
gun promptly at 9 o'clock this evening
and will continue until 2 In the morn
ing. At 9 o'clock the concert will begin. The
McClellan orchestra will bo used for the
concert and tho dancing. No ragtlmo
will bo played.
After tho concert, about 9:20, the grand
march will begin. The march will be
headed by the patrons, who are Governor
and Mrs. William Spry, 'resident and
Mrs. J. T. Kingsbury. Mayor and Mrs.
Samuel Park. Lieutenant and Mrs. M. M
Nelly and Mr. and Mm. W. N. Williams.
The faculty, the prom committee and the
other guests will follow In tho order
AGAIN GOES OVER
The capltol commission met again yes
terday afternoon, but the contract for the
building was not signed, nor was a su
perintendent of building and grounds ap
pointed. It wa announced that this
would probably be done Saturday or Mon
day. No action was taken on the pro
test of the Master Builders exchange.
Matter5 leading up to the signing of
the contract were disposed of yesterday.
The session whs comparatively brief,

'EDDIE' OK BED
Said to Be Wanted -in Con
nection With Murder of
Woman at Bingham.
IS WELL KNOWN IN CITY
J. C. Meyers, Held on Sus
picion, Says -His Damaging
Statements Were Jokes.
" Eddio ' ' Cox, who formerly Uvea" iu
tho southeastern part of tho city, is
tho quarry sought by an cxtonsivo po
lice dragnet as tho result of his
suspected connection with tho murder
of Ethol Williams in Bingham Decem
ber 10, 1012.
Whcni TJetoctivc William Zccse re
turned Wednesday night from Poca
tollo with J. C. ("Jack") Moyers,
who bad been arrested there for
suspected connection with the murder,
he informed Chief of Police Grant that
Co.v had escaped tho police in Pocatollo
and had taken a train for Butte, Mont.
That city was telegraphed yesterday
by tho local police 'department to be
on tho lookout for tho mun.
Cox is well known in this city on ac
count of his nrrost last summer on a
chargo of assault with a deadly
weapon and his subsequent incarcera
tion in the county ja.il.
Chief Grant, yesterday had a talk
with Moyors in the city jail, and the
lattor admitted that he had mado re
marks concerning the murder while ho
was smoking opium hi a loca.l house.
Meyers, however, paid that his admis
sions at that time to the effect that ho
had participated iu the murder woro
made only in josl, and wen: due to tho
influence of the drug which he was
Atoyors is said to have also admitted
that no was in Salt Lake City for sev
eral days following tho murder.
Tho description of Meyers is said to
tally exactly with that given to the
husband of the murdered woman by a
friend of the latter in Bingham. 'Tho
polico department refused, however, to
divulgo the name of the latter, but in
dicated that thoro may be developments-
within a few days.
Today the husband will Journey ao
Bingham, where ho will confer with
Deputy Sheriff Otto Wltbock and the
woman who gave the description of the
supposed slayers of Mrs. WllllamH. It la
expected also that she and several other
Bingham residents will be brought to
Salt Lake to Identify Meyers.
Sheriff Smith last night admitted that
he had a photograph of Cox, but. refused
to admit that the man was wanted In
connection with the Williams murder.
"We know Just where he is," said the
sheriff, "and if we decido that we want
him it wilt only bo a matter of hours be
fore he will be placed under arrest."
I Detective Zceso yesterday held a con
ference with the sheriff a"nd related to
him his experiences in Pocatollo preced
ing the arrcat of Meyers. Detective
Zcose said that Meyers had admitted hav
ing had provioufi trouble; that ho had
"been In Salt Lake Immediately follow
In? the WllllamB murder; that he had
said In an opium den that he and a pal
had murdered the woman In order to rob
her. Meyers protested to Zeese also that
the remark had been only a Joko-
No charge has as yot been placed
against Meyers, but it Is said that If he Is
Identified today by the Bingham witnesses
he will be Immediately charged with
murder In tho first doroe. It Is expected
that tho husband of the murdered woman
will be the complaining witness.
ADMIT THEIR GUILT
Feathers and blood, found on their
clothing, led to the arrest of L. C, At
'wood, 37 years of age, and John Orsell,
33. on a charge of chicken stealing,
shortly after 1 o'clock this morning. Mo
torcycle Patrolmen James Woodard and
W. H. Hendrlckson made the arrests.
A citizen, who saw two men carrying
some chickens called tho polico station,
and tho motorcycle men took up the
trail, tracking the fugitives to the home
of Atwood, between Flr3t and Second
West on Fourth North street. They ware
reluctantly admitted by Atwood. and
found first the tell-talo feathers and then
three chickens, still warm and bleeding,
hlddon. under a pile of sacks In a clothes
closet. The men admitted that the
chickens had been stolen, the officers
say. It was afterward learned by the
arresting "policemen tliut the fowls had
been taken from the hencoop of C. E.
Pace, Z'10 Wall street.
Atwood was arrested for chicken steal
ing on December 26. last. At the time,
sixty-Ave chickens were found in his
barn, and a plant for preparing tho fowls
for market was discovered there He
was sentenced to serve sixty days tho
city Jail, but tho sentence was suspended
because of his having- a large family of
children In need of his support.
SUIT OF CLOTHES
CAUSE OF DISPUTE
"Half a loaf lo better than no bread,"
but the notion of half a suit of clothes
did not appeal to J. Grconblat, who
rushed Into police headquarters yesterday
and asked for protection from L. Trig
gar. Under Greenblat's arm was a bun
dle containing a suit of clothes. Ho
complained that ho had been trailed so
persistently by Trlggar for two days that
he had not had time to try on tho suit.

DOG 1 ROLE OF
Great Intelligence Is Shown
by "Whiskers,'' an
"Whiskers" is probably the only dog
In the world that plays ihe rolo of an au
tomobile horn. Ho Is an Airedale terrier,
belonging to A. A. Clark, a contractor,
with offices at 10 South 1'ourtn WiH
street. Perched on the front of hla own
er's car, tho dog is a familiar eight to
the pedestrians of Salt Lake, many of
whom have, on occasion, been warned
of the approach of the nutomobllo by
the ceaseless barking of the dog.
H "Whiskers" hadn't been named two
years aeo, when he was a "puppy, and
before he became a Eclf-operatlng sub
stitute for a honk-honk attachment to
an automobile, he might have had sonio
nam" less suggestive of his personal ap
pearance and more so of hla vocation,
such at "Tool -toot." Tho dog Is never
caught away from the machine, and never
Is out of his official position on tho front
of the loft mudguard, when the car is
in motion, unless it is going backward.
"Whiskers" is a progressive. He objects
to tho reverse engine operation, and al
ways waits until the car starts ahead
before leaping lo hla perch. Then he
becomes the guardian of the heedless pe
destrian, baying his warning of a com
ing danger at whomsoever obstructs the
way, and giving his attention strictly
to watching tho track straight ahead.
When he was young, "Whiskers" had
a brown bear for a playmate. Then he
doubtless dreamed of llfo In the wilds,
with lots of bear tracks to Investigate,
but Fomcone poisoned tho bear, which
was liopt li tho back yard of the Clark
home, and Ihe dog transferred his affec
tions to the automobile. He can be in
duced to Totrlcve ducks, but prefers his?
chosen activity. He was not trained to
the task, but took the work upon him
self, just as he appointed 'himself guar
dian of the car at oil times when his
master is absent. Always when Mr.
Clark leaves tho car. "Whiskers" clam
bers back Into tho driver's scat, and sits
behind the steorlng sear until the en
gine Is cranked for further travel.
