THE TRIBUNE this morning presents its semi-annual statement of circula
tion and ownership, as required by the federal act of 1912.
Since the law requires the publication of certain details of its business, Tho
Tribune cannot justly be regarded as lacking in modesty when it udds to this
formal required statement certain other details that show tho growth and pros
perous condition of tho paper.
The gross average daily circulation for the six months' period ending March
31 was 20,046. From this figure deductions are mado of nearly 3000 copies,
which go to advertisers, to other newspapers, aro given for service, files, returns
an1 complimentary. Much of this kind of distribution is regarded by tho excel
lent experts of such agencies as N. W. Ayer & Co. as tho best of circulation, but
it is excluded from The Tribune's net figures.
For tho corresponding period a year ago the gross averago daily circula
tion of tho paper was 17,681.
For tho six mouths' poriod ending March 31, 1914, the gross averago Sunday
circulation was 35,566, as compared with 27,349 for tho corresponding period ono
year ago. Approximately 10 per cent of Sunday circulation should bo deducted
to get tho net figures of cash sales.
In its advertising columns Tho Tribune enjoyed similar prosperity. During
tho six months ending March 31 of this year it carried 235,320 inches, or 3,294,480
agate lines, of paid advertising, as compared with 222,414 inches, or 3,113,796
agato lines, for the corresponding period ono year ago. Tu this year's figures
thcro is not included a lino of political patronage, as every ono of the few legal
advertisomonts carried camo in the usual course of business. Tho total gain for
the six months was 12,906 inches, or 180,034 agate lines.

county surveyor, has been discharged
by H. Allan Gardner, surveyor. Harry
Eager was appointed by Mr, Gardner
yesterday to succeed Mackay as drafts

Mackay left tho employee of the

"I gave Mr. Mackay ono week in

Gardnor yestorday, when asked about
tho affair. "At tho ond of tho week

Mackay is a enndidato for tho office of

President's Message.
Great good has bocn accomplished
by the regular visits of the ward
bishoprics to tho homes of tho
Saints. This has glvon tho blnhopa
a personal Insight Into tho family or
ganization and home Ufa of tha peo
ple of thoir wards; and It la pleuslnjr
to noto that in all except the
largest wards tho respective bish
oprics have visited at least once dur
ing the year every fnmily In their
wards. In the larger wards the bish
oprics have vory properly culled to
their aid experienced and Inlluentlul
brothrcn to assist In this annual vis
itation by going to the homes of
members two or threo together as
representatives of tho bishopric. Ap
proximately CO. 000 families were thus
visited either by the bishoprics In
person or by their specially appoint
ed representatives during tho closing
months of tho year ISIS.
As already Indicated, the vital sta
tistics of tha church ao relating to
tho established stakes show a gen
erally good condition among tho
people, Ax compared with the nation
ns a whole our communities show a
higher blrlh rato and a lower death
rate, and greater average duration of
life. II Is strongly urged that strict
attention be given to all sanitary r
qulrcmentH und rules of right living.

"Poverty row," Third West, between
North Temple and First North streets,
yesterday morning by Detectives W. C.
Zeeso and Ilerbert Lcichter.
A second man made his escape after
both had been pursued through back
alleys and over fences. His paco was
quickened by shots from tho revolvers
of tho detectives, but the officers were
handicapped by the presence of many
children in the neighborhood, and for
fear of hitting somo ono of them they
kept firing at tho fleeing man's foot.
Potcrs fell cxhaustod in an alloy
near Fourth West street aud Detective
Lcichter regained his breath while sit
ting on the prostrate man, Detective
-cecso in the meantime continuing the
pursuit of the second man to Fourth
West street, where it was taken. up by
S. 'M. Barlow, former chief of police.
Tho man proved to be both a sprinter
and long-distance runner, however, and
mado good his escape.
Invoices Are Discovered.
Two invoices from the Great "West
ern Smelling & Refining company of
San Francisco showed whero tho al
leged counterfoilora had paid $10 for
tho metal out of which $700 had boen
mado. The invoices listed eleven bars
of tin, three of antimony and three of
antimony and nicklo babbit. The in
voices were found iu a coat dropped
by the man who escaped. They were
dated February 27, 191-1. Potcrs said
that tho men both came here recently
from San Francisco, where he had
worked in the kitchen of the Colonial
hotel.
Word of the catch was telegraphed
yestorda' to II. K. Goddard, United
'States secret aervico agent at Denver,
lie answered with the information that
Agont Bratton would bo in Salt Lako
some time today.
Upon examination tho coins proved to
bo very good imitations. Though they
seem a trifle light, they ring almost
truo and look genuino when not closely
inspected.
Beginning of Chase.
Tho detectives hnd entered a shack in
search of a certain person for whom
they had searched through evory other
house in the court, when Dolective
Leichter discovered evidence of coun
terfeiting operations, In the same in
stant ho realized that two men, who
had met him in thu hallway, had hur
ried out. Dashing out of tho house he
shouted "counterfeiters" to Detoctivc
Zoeso and the ofliccrs cavo chase. Tho
two men were out of the court aud run
ning north on Third West stroet with
a long start. Only tho quick action of
tho dot eeli vos in giving chaso beforo
stopping to mako a full oxarnination of
tho contents of the shack prevented tho
escape of both men,
"We wero showu some counterfeit
coins several days ago by a banker,"
said Detective Loichtor last night.
"When I saw tho layout in tho room
I lost interest in tho case that wo were
working on, realizing that a Btroko of
luck had probably rovcalcd to us the
source of tho spurious coins. From then
on it was a question of ovorcoming the
lend of the men who left tho house be
foro wo had reason to suspect that we
would want them. If wo could have
had timo to call for help and had tho
placo surrounded, it might have been a
little better, and wo did tho best we
could."
May Have Been Hit.
Doloctivo Zeeso was of tho opinion
last night that ono of tho bullets which
he fired at tho escaping man as he
wont over a fence took cfTect in tho
man's log, though no trail of blood
could be found. The detective eald that
tho man flinched and dragged his leg
aa if hit. but tho officer's gun was
empty nnd his wind wns spent. He re
joined Dotectivo Lcichter and tho two
with their ono prisoner wont back and
made thorough search of tho houBO.
Besides tho apparatus for making,
plating and polishing the coins, 1400
oO-cent pieces wero found. Of these,
1200 wore ready for circulation. Thoy

NEW YORK, April 4. The Now York
conference of tho Methodist Episcopal
church today tabled, after a warm de
bate, a resolution roquestlnK tho presi
dent of the United States to discontinue
tho custom of atlendlnK Thunksslvln
mass at the Roman Catholic cathedral
In Washington. The motion to table wns
carried by a vote of 80 to 73. Tho reso
lution said:
Inasmuch as that service hns been
widely construed at homo and abroad
as tho official Thnnks&lvlnp service
of thu United States, wo, the mem
bers of the New York conference of
the Methodist Episcopal church, most
respectfully suggest to tho president
the propriety of discontinuing tho
practice.
Tho resolution provided that a codX'
should be sent to tho senior Methodist
bishop In Washington, with tho request
that he lay it before tho president.
"Dr. Thomas S. Bond, pastor of the
MoitIh Heights Methodist church and
the author or tne resolution, and several
supporters, Including for. Wallaco Mc

church of this city, eald in thu debate
over the roaolutlon that no one took ex

when ho attended the Catholic church

A crowd of about 2000 prsons heard fj
the nddresscs and saw tho corncrstono i
oilicially laid in place. Their interest 9
in one of tho most momentous events H
in tho history of Utah was evidenced jH
by frequent bursts of applause for the
patriotic sentiments expressed by. tne
speakers. AM
Scene Most Impressive. 9B
The scene was a beautiful one. The W
huge capitol, standing still uncompleted, mm
but having tho form of the magnificent mm
structure it will be when moro granile, M
marble and brick is added to the fiamc- tH
work, stood out against thu massivu
hill, a fitting background to the speak- fl
era' stand and the crowd. The building
itself and the speakers" stand, which mmii
was located on tho brirul steps which Hl
wind down from tho main entrance, was . VjM
ablaze with color. American Hags woro fH
draped upon the capitol and stand and
a bright arrn' of color was lent tho fl
scene by the various uniforms. The na-
tional guardsmen in their uniforms of
bluo trimmed with tho full dress cords
of red and light bluo; tho gorgeous full 9H
dress, gold-lacod uniforms of tho gov- JH
ernor 's staff and of tho army officers
and tho uniforms of tha Industrial H
school band and the Salt Lako police-
men, together with tho bright gowns of nfl
the many women present, made a bright IflH
spot on the 6obcr hillside. fflH
Ono of the touching references of tho jflE
.corners ton o laying was a remark mado '
by John Dorn at the collusion of his JBH
address. Mr. Dern recalled that nonu f
of tho speakers who had preceded him fH
had mentioned tho fact that John
Henry Smith, who died moro than two H
years ago, had been a member of tho tB
capitol commission as originally ap-
pointed by Governor Spry. Mr; Dern ifl
in a few brief remarks eulogized tho
charactotr of tho lata church leador, H
laying especial stress of his ability, in- lH
duenco and hard work as a member of IflH
tho commission. IflH
Governor Is Cheered.
Governor Spry was loudly , cheered
when he declared that tho capitol com- HI
mission proposed to havo tho senato and HH
for tho next legislature whon It meets nHI
in January. Ho declared that "Utah )B
could well bo proud that at last .it has .
a homo of its own, one that its citizons '
can point to with pride and tell visitors
that it is tho diroct result of industry
and thrift on tho part of tho inhabi- H
t tints. In part Governor Spry eaid: !
