fl How a Woman Vas Defeated For Nomination For State Treasurer'
M By the Banking Interests That Have a Grip on the State Funds
fl An Interesting- Story For Women to Read.
H Th Standard 1ms been requested
H several times to toll the story of how
H t .Mrs. Margaret Zane Witcher was dc-
H feated for state treasurer in the Re-
H publican state convention, and some
H timo ago this paper asked a Salt Lake
H friend to send the information His
H letter just arrived this morning. Af-
H ter telling that Mrs. Witcher has been
M county clerk of Salt Lake county for
H several years and how competent she
H would haie been in filling any office
H in the state, he says:
H "She became a candidate for state
Hj treasurer. It was for a long time
B practically conceded that she would
H have little, if any, opposition, in fact,
H ' I dbubt whether any was anticipated '
H until the representatives of certain,
H banks approached her with a proposl-'
H tion that she pledge herself to the
1 deposit of the public funds, now
B amounting to about two million dol-
H lars, in certain banks which they
H should name, and upon such condi-
H tions as they should mention. Mis.
H Witcher Indignantly stated that she
M would enter into no contract or com-
H bine with any bank or banking instl-
Hl tution, and that, if elected as stale
Hl treasurer, sho would deposit the funds
HJ as in her Judgment seemed best, and
H upon such conditions as would be
H most secure and beneficial to the
H state of Utah. Then it was that the
H opposition began Had she consented
H to their request they would have guar-
H anteed her nomination and her elec-
H tion. In spite of this, she came with-
H in a few votes of being nominated in
H the convention. She was defeated b
M the open and active support of the
H hanking Interests and especially the
1 candidate who is now running on the
m Republican ticket for state troasurer,
H Jesse D. Jewkcs, even his own son.
H with others, actively went through tha
convention and said to the delegates:
j 'Send the women to the kitchen. The
H' proper place for a woman Is in the
' kitchen.' This statement was made
B, hy Jewkes' son himself, together with
other statements reflecting upon the
J ability of Mrs. Witcher to hold this
BAw "After Mr. Jewkes got the nomina-
Sj1 tion he went to Mrs. Witcher, extend -
SJ ed his sympathy and condoled with
BJi her In her defeat. She Indignantly
SJ-. spmed his apologies and told him in
the presence of others that she uu-
jf derstood how sho was defeated, and
Jl called his particular attention to the
BJ( statements which his own son had
L- made concerning the pioper place for
BjV a woman, and the only place for which
BJi she was fit, Mr Jowkes stated that
SJ'i if she felt thla way he would with-
BJ draw from the ticket and allow her
BJ name to be placed on the ticket In

OPPOSED TO THE
In a resolution adopted by the di
rectors of the Ogden Publicity bu
reau at their regular meeting yester
day afternoon at the Weber club the
bureau pledged its influence against
the granting of 50-year franchises to
corporations in Ogden City.
It was the general opinion that Og
den should adopt the methods of most
other cities and place the limit at 25
yeara. The directors did not believe
that the present generation should
grant privileges that will Influence
future genciatlons moie than the citi
zens of tho present.
A letter signed by Guy Needham,
which the writer admits is not his real
name, was read by Manager Stilwoll
fit the Publicity bureau, and tho action
of the directors In adopting the reso
lution took place following the reading
of the letter.
i The communication stated that the
Utah Light & Railway companv wan
charging too much for service and
that Ogden should not be too hastv
In granting long franchises when the
city has no control over the corpo
rations. Several othor complaints wore made
copcerning the price qt coal, the ac
