CACHE COUNTY GIVES
UP ROAD BOND PLANS

high cost of road building material
and the present condition of the bond
market, members of the Cache county
commission have decided that the
bond election for approximately $700,
C00 shall be Indefinitely postponed.
. In objecting to bonding at tho pres.
ent time as a means of raising money
for the construction of good roads,
the commissioners have pointed out
that tho roads can be built with money
raised by taxation. The commission
ers can levy a tax on the assessed
valuation of the county that will, with
the fund available from the state,
nearly equal tho amount of the bond
election in three years.

In regard to statistics presented by
the railroad representatives, Mr. Jew-1
ell said1: j
"Tho roads included overtime in I
their compilations. This is not a fair j
way to figure a basic, minimum wage.
Also, they did not take into consid-j

not receiving the big- increases over

Judge Barton adjourned the board
until next Tuesday when tho roads
will have a chance for rebuttal.

MATIEiiEE, UTftH TODAY
Bert Lytell will bo seen the last time'
today at the Utah theatre In a screen'
version of the Internationally famous
crokl: drama, "Alias Jimmy Valen
tine." from the play by Paul Arm-1
To remark on the nature of this
play borders on the superfluous, for.
it probably is the most popular and1
successful melodrama written in thel
last decade. It was first presented on
the stage In Now York, with H. B.j
Warner in the title role, and ran for
a long, crowded season. The extended!
career the piece has had on the road I
and in stock companies needs no com
ment. '".'Alias Jimmy Valentine" Is a role
entirely different from any he has
portrayed in Metro's "fewer and bet
l ter" series of special productions. Hisj
previous appearances, ns the tompcra-
mental modiste In "Lombardi, Ltd."
and as the supercilious and brilliant
Charley Steele In Sir Gilbert Parker's
"The Right of Way," are far removed
in character from tho magnetic jail
i bird hero. "Alias Jimmy Valentine,"
i whoso name Is a household word In
j America. I
I To say that the part is one adml-!
rably suited to Mr. Lytell's abilities
'rather discounts them for it is becom
ing known that this young star does
not need a role tailored to him. He
Is .probably the one voung male star
of the screen who makes his charac
terizations individual, makes them dif-
ferent from the conventional type of
theatrical hero. Jimmy is a person,
however, whom Mr. Lytell knows from
having portrayed him In slock, on tho

LINCOLN, Neb., May 29. Senator
Robert L. Owen of Oklahoma, In an
address to a merchants' club of Lin
coln, discussed financial conditions of
the country and particularly what he
said was the policy of the federal re
serve banks in raising Interest rates
I in an effort to check speculation.
"There is an impression just now
over the country that a financial panic
may be coming," said Senator Owen.
I "Such a thing is impossible. An in
dustrial depression, however, is not at
The senator protested against what
he declared to be the mistaken policy
;of the New York federal reserve bank
in Increasing rates for call loans. The
result, he said, was to cause alarm
when it was unnecesary, "because they
jdo not stop speculation, but simply
j encourage the bear market." His
remedy, he said, was not to raise in
terest rates, but to limit loans. Fol
lowing his formal address the senator
answered a series of questions put to
I him by the banker. He believed there
could be no repetition of the 1907
panic brought about, he declared, by
