: STATEMENT ON
I Former Commissioner Jones
Says Most Intoxicants
Went to Flu Patients
As there hns been considerable said
through the press about the reported
) disappearance of liquor from the po-
lice station prior to January 5, I think
i Jn justice to Chief Browning and his
" lyl !, associated the citizens of Ogden city
; should know the truth of the matter
j-' and then they can judge for them-t
' ' 5 j During the epidemic of the flu, (J.
: 3 . Officer .Mr. Price and his associ-
I Kle Cle upon Chief Browning and
Tviyself and requested us to furnish the
, p Hospitals, Logan, Malad and other cit
ies in this part of the state,-with what
liquor we had on hand and he said
,. j Jhat if our supply should run out to
, . ;totify him at Salt Lake and he would
f 2Lond up what we needed, as it was,
4jio policy of the government to as-
ist in the relief of the sick.
. Malad City and Logan both received
liquor from the police station as did,
; -also the hospitals. And when a call
was made in case of emergency byi
physicians, distribution was made!
through the health department. There I
iare a groat many people in Ogden
ftity that can testify as to having re-1
j "3eiVed liquor in this way and they.
I I -Tvere not requested to sign for it as !
i 1 .tTvc deemed a request from their phy-;
j Xiciah sufficient. In one instance
I Xhere was a small quantity stolen be-'
! '.fore it was placed in the property j
1 J j oom, this occurred on the night of,
i i jhe fire at the Ice house when all the j
! ' Regular officers were on duty, so we .
i' jvere not able to find out Just who.
I ;was responsible for its disappearance,
i I am firmly of the opinion that wej
I ;did right in giving it to those who had;
faith that it would help them and in!
nany cases no doubt it did. As an!
illustration, one day I was detained at
my office a little late and a good re-j
liable citizen, whom 1 have known for;
many years, came in and asked me to"
get him a small boitle of brandy ori
whisky, as his little girl was very sick'
with pneumonia. The health depart-1
inent officials had all gone and I hesi-!
(ated for a moment but upon second
'consideration I thought that this was
a case worthy of attention and I called
up the property clerk, who was then
at his home and he came down and t
X gave the man a small bottle. A day
Ur so after this the little girl died andj
had I refused assistance in this case
L would always have condemned my-'
.self. I want to say in behalf of Chief'
Drowning and his associates that,
through the so-called and much talked i
;pf nvcstlgation, they did not connect
xhem with any wrong doing, notwith-i
Standing their enemies were in con-j
trol of the, investigation. A few min-
utes perusal of the report will be suf-
ficient to satisfy any honest, fair
minded person as to these facts. !
I regret very much that matters of i
this kind should arise, but when they,
do then the citizens are entitled to
the truth and they can judge for them
selves, j M. L. JONES.
Ij- TOOK A SEVERE COLD j
j j "Our 5 year old son Paul took a se-1
; "vere cold Jast winter that sottled on!
his lungs and he had terrible coughing j
spells. We were getting wcrrjed about j
lifm as the medicine we gave him did
not help him in the least. A neighbor,
j spoke so highly of Chamberlain's!
j Cough Remedy that I got a botle of it,
and the first dose benefited him so
,' much that I continued giving It to him
j until he was cured," writes Mrs Frank

Livestock Shipment j
Hindered by Strike
Cold and storms have retarded tho J
growth of grass on local ranges, and 1
the sheep and cattle havo suffered
thereby. Some lamb losses are re
ported and in some rations rather
heavy losses of cattle have been suf
fered. The switchmen's strike ha3
also greatly hindered the transporta
tion of sheep, says J- Cecil Alter of
tho United States weather bureau.
England In 1751 had a penalty of 50
pounds for advertising a refard for
stolen goods with "no questions ask
BACKWARD WEATHER AND LACK OF
HAY HITS LIVESTOCK IN STATE;
GRAZING CONDITIONS UNFAVORABLE-
Backward weather, the scarcity of
hay and the swltchmens' strike have
combined unfavorably against live
stock of tho state, says the weekly re
view of J. Cecil Alter, state meteorolo
gist, which follows:
The week has been cold and back
ward, with some stormy weather; con
dilltons were thus unfavorable for the
growth of grass so much needed for
livestock, owing to the extreme short
age of hay generally. Some lamb
losses, together with rather heavy
Iosbcs of cattle in limited regions are
reported. The movement of sheop has
been halted generally by the railroad
! employes' strike, though overland
trailing has continued. Hay is extreme
ly scarce and Is selling for ?35 to $50
Pocatello; stock are reported in
critical condition at Oakley, Montpel
ier, Afton, Evanston and Widtsoe.
They continue poor at Kelton. Du
chesne. Beaver, Emery and Kanab,
with slow improvement. Farm work
and sheep shearing have been delayed
I considerable, though some seeding has
been done In southern counties Mead
ows generally aro growing slowly.
Fruit continues dormant over most of
the state, with a favorable prospect!
for tho later maturing kinds. The pre
cipitation has been beneficial to the
soils, and while it is drying out appre
ciably in some southern localities,
streams generally aro running rather)
high. Apricots are blooming and some
potatoes and gardens have been plant
1 od at Moab. Spring wheat is coming
up at Beaver and sprouting at Elberta,
and some mowing is reported at Koo
f harem, Modena and Manti. Appels
j at Elberta promise a full crop, but
peaches were badly killed.
I Highways are making some improve
Iment, and much work is being done,
while the dirt is easily moved.
To Check Up Utah
Special investigators will soon be
'sent into Weber county and other
counties throughout the state to cbeck
I up the actual market value of property
in the various localities and lo com
pare the figures thus obtained with
jhe assessed valuation for the property
sold and for neighboring or similar
property, according to a decision
reached yosterday at a meeting of the
state board of equalization, in Salt
It is contended by the board that
tho only way to gel a Just distribution
oi taxation is for all property to be
assessed on an even basiB, and for this
reason, the Investigation is to be made.
Tho law arms the state board with
power to make such Investigations, to
swear witnesses, if necessary, and to
demand certain details of property val
ues. Should a property owner persist
in lefusing to give Information which
the board under the law, may require,
he would render himself liable to an
action in court and to a fine of not to
