men raise a fund of about $40,000 for the
i triennial encampment of Modern Wood
men of America, committees of Uiat or
f der will call on Secretary Joseph E.

the members by J. H. Rothwell, clerk
of the camp, who had been requested to
do ho by C. M. Ramey of Ogden, dis
trict deputy. Mr. Rothwell said:
Will Bring Great Throng.
If the encampment is held hero
h about 40,000 visitors will come to
R Salt Lake In June. The question
D of making new Insurance rates Is
to be thrashed out and that ought to

ment of $6000 Attorney
Fee of Miles and Richards.
The city commission yesterday refused
to rescind or amend the new berry ordi
nance by which berries canot be sold on
the local market except in full quart and
pint cups. This action was taken on tho
petition of local growers and box manu
facturers, who asked that the ordinance
bo amended, or at least held In abeyance
during the coming berry season, on the I
ground that they already have a year's
supply of berry boxes of the old typo on
hand. They declared they would suffer
heavy financial loss if the ordinance Is
enforced this year. A protracted hearing
was given the petitioners Tuesday.
W. E. Farr, scaler of weights and meas
ures, was instructed to warn California
growers that their product cannot be
placed on the local market except In

Special Agent of Interior 'Depart
ment Says Indians Substitute
It for Whisky.
No more Jamaica ginger for the In
dian In Utah. A ban has been placed
on the liquid so far as Its sale to In
dians Is concerned, and henceforth those,
who are caught selling the ginger to them
will bo prosecuted as vigorously as

Such is the edict that has gone forth as
a result of a conference between Hiram
E. Booth, local United States district
attorney, and Lorenzo D. Creel, special
agent for wandering bunds of Indians in
Utnh, representing the Interior depart
ment. The conference resulted from a visit
of Mr. Creel to Tooele county, where, he
says, Indians have been buying much of
the ginger and reveling under its pecu
liar influence, declaring It. "heap good
same like firewater."
Under soctlon -120S, compiled laws of
Utah for 1007, It is a felony lo sell, ex
change, give, barter or dispose of any
Intoxicating drink to any Indian of the
whole or halfblood, and Is punishable by

Several Indian war veterans wore also
before the committee to urge favorable
action on the Booth hill providing pen
sions for Indian war vetorans. Tho bill
calls for an appropriation of more than
$300,000, and the members of tho com
mittee are agreed that this amount can
not be appropriated at this time. How
ever, they promised to recognize the.
claims of the veterans and will probablv
appropriate $25,000 to be distributed
among the survivors of the war.
George N. Child, president of tho State
Teachers association, and Professor B.
S. Hinckley appeared before the commit
tees to ask an appropriation of $10,000
for the entertainment of the National
Education association In Salt Lake next

Photographers Take New Tack
in Seeking Exemption Prom
Having failed to impress the city
commieslon with their plea that photog
raphy Is a form of art and should there
fore be exempt from the annual license
tax under the state law exempting "art
work," local photographers, headed bv
C. E. Johnson, yesterday approached the
matter from another angle, seeking an
abatement of tho license on the ground
that photography Is "labor." In a peti
tion received by the city recorder Mr.
Johnson sets forth photographers nro
skilled mechanics and should bo exempt
from tho tax Just the same as other
skilled laborers such as brickluvcrs or
Several dayB ago a 3core of photogra
phers sought surcease from the ?15 an
nual license as "artists." Their petition
was denied. Mr. Johnson's second peti
tion will bo considered by the commis
sions today. Ho sayH the license Is "an
unjust and discriminatory tax on labor."

especial interest to her part of the disaster.
MUCK DEBATE OVER
COMP EiM BILL
Funk's, Measure Is Argued at
Length in Public Hearing
by Joint Committee.
The Funk bill for an employers' liabili
ty and worlclngmen's compensation law
was discussed last night at considerable
length at a public hearing of tho joint
committee considering the bills relating
to the subject. Heretofore the bills un
der consideration have been the RUlcout
and Bamberger bills.
The two bills heretofore considered are
copies of the N'ew Jersey law, while the
Funk bill follows the Nevada law. The
Funk bill Is strongly favored by the
Utah Federation of Labor and the West
ern Federation of Miners. M. C. How
ard of the Utah Federation of Labor,
speaking for the federation and claiming
to represent l.,000 organized woiklngmon
In the state, and Judge A. J. Weber, rep
resenting the Western Federation of
Miners, spoke In behalf of the Funk bill
at last night's meeting.
Want No Exemption.
Three of the members of the commit
tee. Senators W. Mont Ferry ami D. O.
KIdcout and Representative Clarence
Bamberger, all of Salt Lake, were present
at last night's hearing. The discussion
was opened by H. W. Logan, representing
6S0 conductors in the state, everyone of
whom, Mr. Logan said, was petitioning
the committee to exempt the railroad men
from the provisions of any compensation
act that might be passed, for the reason
that the present arrangement with the
railroad companies relative to compensa
tion was eminently satisfactory to both
the companies and the employees and the
compensation received was much higher
than that named in the bill. Mr. Logan
thought the compensation in. the Rldcout
bill much too small.
The members of the committee were of
the opinion that no bill passed by a state
legislature could affect employees In the
train service of railroad companies, for
the reason that they were employees of
common carriers engaged In luterstato
traffic and were speclllcally provided for
In the federal compensation act. This
opinion was also held by Emmctt M.
Baglcy, claims attorney for the Oregon
Short Line, who spoko In favor of the
Rideout bill, but vigorously opposed the
Many Express Views.
Others who spoke at tho meeting were
Joseph M. nidwcll, manager of the
American Smelting & Refining company;
Charles C. Blohler. representing the
Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen, and
H. B. Windsor, president of the Windsor
Fire & Casualty Insurance company. All
favored a compensation act, but some
thought that a more satisfactory measure
might "bo secured if a commission were
appointed lo Investigate the various laws
and report back to the next legislature,
when the measure could be drafted.
The committee will hold no more open
sessions unless something develops that
makes such a course seem advisable.
However, it will receive and consider all
written communications and suggestions
addressed to it.

not get Into the place whore the chickens
Tho coop, according to Officer Houk,
was but a hole in the ground, roofed
over. After seeing" it, Mr. Houk ex
pressed sympathy for tho threo chickens
that the dog didn't kill, and ordered
them removed to the barn. Later whon
the case was talked over at police head
quarters, and some remarks were made
of taking Impressions of the dog's foot

H III ESCAPE
Bill Saved From Defeat by
Motion to Defer Final Ac
tion Until Today.
The general Insurance measure had a
narrow escape In the senate yesterday.
There were only twelve senators In the
chamber whon the bill was taken up for
final passage, and It required the affirma
tive votes of ten members to pass the
bill. After three senators had announced
their opposition to the measure, thus
precluding the possibility of Its passage,
further action was hastily deferred until
Stale Insurance Commissioner Wlllard
Done, author of the measure, was given
tho privilege of the lloor to speak for
the measure and explain Its provisions.
When ho had concluded his explanation
Senator William Craig moved the elimi
nation of threo sections from the bill
relative to rebating. He and Senator
Rideout were tho only ones voting for
the amendment. Senator Craig then moved
that the enacting clause bo stricken out
of the bill. This motion also failed, tho
same two voting for it ns voted for the
Senator W. 'Mont Ferry of Salt Lake
then said ho was opposed to somo of
the provisions of the measure and would
vote against It If a rollcall were asked
nt that time. He moved that the bill
go to the foot of the calendar. Senator
Charles Cottrcll, Jr., author of the bill,
then came to its rescue and asked that
action on the measure bo deferred for
one day, and that It como up today as a
special order. This motion prevailed.

"It's just another ITerald-Rcpubfican

last night, concerning an editorial In
that paper, commenting on a telegram
received by Chief Grant, from Chief of
Police C. E. Sebastian of Los Angeles.
"The statement made In the article,

"The writer of tho article could easily
have found out whether or not Chief
Sebastian and I aro acquainted, but that
would have put them in possession of
a truth that would have deprived them
of a fake."

South Africa Tells of Work
Major G. T. Jordan of tho Salvation
Army, recently from Capetown. South

that tho Salvation Army was the only
religious organization In South Africa
that was neutral during the Boer war.
He said the Salvation Army had repre

Major Jordan spoke to an audience at

Capetown, he said, was a city of about
Salt Lake's population. It contained
citadels, rescue homes, rooming houses,
restaurants and other establishments
conducted by the Army for the assist
ance of the poor and sinful.
"The rooms are particularly helpful."
said the speaker. "Beforo the Salva
tion Army established the place home
less men would seek shelter from the
weather by creeping Into vaults In a
nearby cemetery. It does not rain often
In South Africa, but when it does the
storms are very violent. The rain
sweeps almost everything before It.
Homeless persons would Ho down along
