MANY MEN ARE
WORMING IN
CANYON
The Smith Brothers Mattress mid
Bedding company 1ms had some trou
blo the past few days with frozen
ground in excavating for the lailraco
to their power plant
Work on concreting the penstock
and the waterway leading to the tur
bine wheels has been somewhat re
tarded. However, a force of men and
teams was at work yesterday and it
is again turned through tho canal
from tho Utah Light and Railway
company's power plant.
The Wheelwright Construction com
pany is laying concrete today.
Along the lino of the work huge
fires have been kept burning the past
few nights to keep the ground thawed
sufficiently to enable the plow teams
to break surface and yet it Is said that
tho ground has been found to have a
crust of frozen earth from 5 to S Inch
es thick
Tho Utnh light & Railway company
has a force of about id men concret
ing the tallraco from its power plant,
an effort being made to get the wa
terway completed at the earliest pos
sible moment. The men were at work
yesterday and a night force may bo
put on the Job before the work is final
ly finished. The wheels of the plant
are still silent and the silence means
the loss of a great deal of money to
the company. The reservoir at the
power dam in the canyon has not been
cleared of the debris to tho depth re
quired, but fairly good progress is be
ing made. Tho mud In the bottom of
tho reservoir is frozen to a considera
ble extent and It has been necessary
In some instances to use giant pow
der to loosen the material to be placed
in the stream and washed away to tho
river bed below the dam.
A large lnterurban car leaves tho
city each morning tilled with work
men who are engaged In repairing the
large pipe lino leading from the pow
er plant below the mouth of Ogden
canyon to the dam taoo the Idlewlld
rcBort in the canyon. Not many staves
aro found to bo damaged, but It takes
considerable time to remedy tho de
fective ones. It is said that the pipe
will bo as good as now when the re
pair work Is completed

GIRL ENDS HER
OWN LIFE BY
POISON
In a fit of despondency, Miss Myr
tle Needham. aged 19 years, a paroled
student from the State Industrial
school, committed suicide yesterday
morning at tho home of Mrs. Nettle
Eccles, 1018 Twenty-sixth street, by
swallowing threo ounces of carbolic
acid.
Dr. C. F. Osgood was called and
arrived within 10 minutes after it
was learned that the girl had taken
the poison, but his efforts wero of no
avail. The members of the family
believe that the poison was taken at
11:45 o'clock, death resulting 25 min
utes later.
Tho girl was not considered strong
mentally and no other reason for hor
act has been discovered.
During the forenoon the girl ap
peared to bo happy. Near noon the
members of the Ecclcs family heard
cries coming from tho basement and
found that the girl had taken the poi
son and made her way through .a
small basement into the narrow space
between tho ground and floor in the
front part or the building. She was
taken from this position while con
scious and admitted that she had ta
ken the acid, but gave no reasons for
having dono so The empty bottle
was found on the floor. Members of
the family state that the poison was
not purchasod by them and must have
been secured by the girl herself
After tho parents of the girl had
separated four years ago the author
ities took Myrtle and a younger sister
into cvstody placing thein In the In
dustrial school Tho girl had' been
at the school two years when she was
placed under the care of Mrs. Net
tie Eccles, who has accorded her the
kindest treatment. The younger sis
ter is living with a family in Brig
ham City.
Ex-offlcio Coroner W. H Reeder
was called, but he decided that no
inquest was necessary. The body was
taken in charge by the Larkin &
Sons company and was sent to Salt
Lake, where the girl's mothor resides.

Interstate Commission
Wins Over the Stock
Yards.
Washington, Dec. 9. Jurisdiction of
tho interstate commerce commission
over the Union Stock yards and Tran-.
sit company of Chicago was today up
hold by tho supreme court which sus
tained the commission's right to bring
suit to have tho company's contract
to pay $50,000 to Pfaelzer and Sons,
packers, for erecting a plant adjacent
to its tracks, annulled as amounting to
a rebate
In the theory that tho Chicago
stockyard business was Interstate
commerce, the commission decided it
had authority to enjolu tho stock
yards company and the Chicago Un
ion Stockyards and Railway and Tran
sit company and the Chicago Junc
tion railways, and which holds tho
slock of the two companies, from en
gaging in restraint of trade
Tho commerce court held that the
Chicago Junction companv alono en
gaged in intorstato commerce.
Instead of sending tho case back to
the commerce court for further hear
ings, the supreme court dircctod the
lower court to enter a decree prevent
ing the carrying out of tho Pfaelzer
contract.

STATEMENT
Warns Public Against
Misleading Money
Trust Reports.
Washington, Dec. 9. When the
committee began the hearing on the
money trust investigation today,
Chairman Pujo made the following
statement:
"In resuming this inquiry tho com
mittee feels that the many unauthor
ized, misleading and inspired reports
that havo been circulated concerning
its work and plans should be correct
ed and that tho public should be
warned against placing any credence
in them. There has been a consist
ent hostile offort in certain directions
to embarrass the inquiry. No state
ments have or will be made or au
thorized on b'ehalf of the committee
at any time except such as maj be
openly announced at tho hoarings.
Sheer Fabrications.
"At no time has there ever been
any friction, misunderstanding or dif
ference, either among the members
or with or between counsel Tho ut
most harmony has prevailed from tho
beginning, and the reports to the con
trary have been sheer fabrications.
Nor is there any authority for the
persistent published report as to pro
posed remedies or legislation The
question has never been before the
committee and it would bo premature
to consider it. The committee is not
yet in possession of the facts on
which to base a judgment. It has
barely reached the threshold of the
inquio, so that any opinion as to its
action Is decidedly premature, to say
the least.
"Attention is called to the an
nouncement mado at the outset of
the hearings last May, and since fre
quently repeated, that the terms of
the resolution under which the com
mittee is acting cannot be fully car
ried out unless, or until, congress
shall have enacted tho bill that has
passed the house and Is now pending
in the senate, removing all existing
doubt as to tho power of the com
mittee to inquire Into the part. If any.
that Is played by the national banks
In tho alleged concentration and con
trol of money and credit.
Committee Will Push Work.
"Meantime the committee will press
forward with the other heads of the
inquiry with tho view of submitting
an intermediate report accompanlod
by such recommendations as may be
deemed wise.
"The postponement over tho presi
dential campaign was taken pursuant
to tho frequently announced determi
nation that this important investiga
tion should not be subject to tho crit
icism or suspicion of being In any way
influenced by or connected with po
litical exigencies."
LONG RACE
HASBEGUN
Six-Day Bicycle Races
Start at Madison
Square Garden.
ew York, i3ec. 9. All records had
been broken this morning at the end
of the eighth hour of the twentieth an
nual bicycle race In Madison Square
Garden. At that time the 15 teams
which started at midnight were tied
at 1S9 miles, 3 laps.
With an entry Hut of fifteen teams
and a track considerably improved in
its construction, this year's Interna-1
tional six-day bicycle race, starting r.t
one minute after midnight in Madison
Square Garden, gave promise of be
ing productive of faster and more in
teresting riding than any of its prede
cessors. The new track, which meas
ures ten laps to tho mile, was built
for increased speed, being banked at
a sharper angle at tho turns, with
broader approaches to the two stretch
es, both of which are shorter than
heretofore.
New Rules Uced.
To avoid unnecessary delays in
changing partners and "loafing" under
tho pretext of unavoidable accidents,
the rules governing the race were
changed so that any team not repre
sented through accident or design af
ter the others have covered ten laps
shall be penalized the distance which
it may have lost. Judges and Inspect
ors havo instructions that Intentional
delays caused by so-called accidents,
shall not profit the offenders.
Riders Get Cash Prizes.
Last year the riders demanded that
tho ensh prizes be arranged on a per
centage of the gate receipts and the
winners were dlssatlsrlcd with tho re
sult. This year the nine leading
teams will receive cash prizes as fol
lows: First. $1,600; second, $1,000; third,
$800; fourth, $700; fifth, $500; 3lxth,
$400; seventh, $300; eighth, $200.
ninth $100.
In addition, about $6,000 In bonuses
will be divided among the riders.

Wheat Prices Sag.
Chicago, Dec. 9. Reports that Ar
gentina would begin shipping new
wheat before the end of the mouth,
had a bearish effect today on prices
here. Cables from Buenos Ayres tell
ing of fine harvest weather counted
also against the bulls Resting orders
to buy at a decline, however, steadied
tho markcL The opening was a shade
to l-4(Jp3-S lower. May started at 90
90 1-8 to 1-4. a loss of 1-S to 1-403-S,
and sagged to S9 7'890 Corn de
clined on account of the cold wave
and because of larger offerings from
the country. May opened unchanged
at 48 to 4S 1-S11 down and seemed
disposed to keep within that rango.
Oats showed an easy feeling In sym
pathy with other grain. May, which
started unchanged to u sixteenth low
er at 32 5-S3-l to 32 3-4, held at the
last named figures. Good buying car
ried provisions higher. First sales
were unchanged to 5 up, with May at
1S.25 to 1S.30 for pork, 10 25 for lard
and $10 for ribs.
Stocks on Hand Increase.
Now York, Dec. 9. Whatever en
couragement traders roqolved from tho
Improvement In monetary conditions
shown in Saturday's bank statement,
was offset by the usual restrain shown
on "decision days" of the supreme
court, and by the ability of tho bears
to force liquidation in low priced in
dustrials. Less attention was paid to foreign
news, and the local market, after
wavering at tho outset, yielded in
sympathy with the hammering of sev
eral issues. Reading and Lehigh Val
ley, while quiet, covered a great deal
of ground, and copper shares reflected
the prevalent opinion that the month

crease In stocks on hand.
Bonds were steady.

HE ATTACKS I
ROOSEVELT I
Senator Works Says I
Both Teddy and Taft
Deserved Defeat. H
Washington, Dec. 9. In a speech H
today upon his resolution for a con- :H
stitutional amendment that would pro- M
vide a single oix-ycar presidential jH
torm. Senator Works of California,
Identified since his entry Into tho
senate with the Progressive Ropubll- Bfl
can faction, made a strong criticism H
of Theodore Roosevelt and the Pro-
grcsslve party for their affiliation H
with Georgo W. Perkins and other H
representatives of large corporations. H
Senator Works said both Roosevelt BJ
and Taft deserved defeat. He assert- H
ed that Roosevelt, when President, ;
had withheld action nsatnnt the Ha-- H
vestor trust, with the natural result
that Mr. Perkins had been one of tho M
chief Roosevelt backers in the fight H
this year for tho Progressiva nomlna- H
Uons. and, with equal emphasis, said M
that President Taft had "lost the re- H
spect and good will of many good pcc- M
pic by going upon tho stump against M
Colonel Roosevelt." ftV
President's Office Corruptly Uced. H
The attack upon Roosevelt came la Bfl
connection with Senator Works' no- IH
serlion that the President's oWo had IH
been used td prevent adrcrso action M
against corporations. fl
"We aro not without criooaco of
auch action on succeeding elections,"
said Senator Works. "The great Hav- IH
vostcr truBt, one of tho worst and IH
most oppressive of its kind, was sig- H
nally favored by Mr Roosevelt when IH
President in this respect. It was not IH
prosecuted for violation of the Sher- IH
man anti-trust law becau6o Roosevelt H
ordered otherwise. What was thonat- M
ural result? When Roosevelt again H
became a candidate, George W. Per- H
kins again became his supporter and M
chief backer. Perkins was interest- H
ed In the Harvester trust. Perkins H
knew by actual demonstration that his H
company would bo safo against just H
prosecution if Roosevelt were elected, H
unless he should change his mind. And H
he would much less likely change his H
views if the Harvester trust or Its H
stockholders should lend him their H
support. H
Does Not Imply Bad Motive, H
"I am not saying that Mr. Roose- H
velt acted out of improper motives in H
dealing with '"file" Harvester trust or U
tho S tool trust He may have been
perfectly satisfied that tho course ta- H
ken by him was the proper and just
course. I call attention to these In-
stances of presidential favor and what H
followed them as illustrating the pow-
cr that exists In the hands of a Pros- H
ldent in his first terra, to securo his
election to a second term. H
Facts brought out in the senatorial
Investigation of campaign expend!-
lures were cited by Senator Works to H
show the extent to which "trusts and
their millionaire stockholders" had
contributed to campaign contributions,,
Ho declared that "prlvjlego seeking
corporations support the public off!-
cial who will grant them privileges "
Both Old Parties Guilty.
"The Investigation of campaign con-
tributions lately held has expressed
some of tho darkest pages of tho po-
litlcal history of the country," he
declared. 'It has revealed tho un-
pleasant facts that tho money used
for campaign purposes, both by Re-
publicans and Democrats, in past
years was supplied almost wholly by
men interested In the large corpora- I
tlons that were amenable to punish-
ment under tho anti-trust law.
New Party Tainted. t I
"Tho new Progressive party was
tainted in the very beginning by put
ting itself in the hands of tho same
interests. It was managed and fi
nanced by promoters, corruptlonlsta
and trust magnates. In all theso cases
money was contributed to secure tho
election of a man who, If elected,
would be entrusted with tbe power of
determining conclusively whether or
not they should bo prosecuted No ,
matter whether It was so undorstood j
or not, It was nothing more nor less I
than buying Immunity from such pros- j
ocutlon." I
Harrlman Contribution. j
Senator Works referred to the eo
callcd Harrlman contribution In tho
campaign of 1904, a fund which Har-
rlman said Roosevelt had asked him ,
to raise, but which Colonel Roosevelt 1
has testified was raisod on Mr. Harri-
roan's own initiative, j
"It Ik not very material which was
right, or whicb was wrong," said Mr. J
Works. "Harrlman received his re- j
ward whether the money was rai6od
for that purpose or not. Suits by Uic J
government were at that very time J
pending against some of his corapa- y
nies and aftor his contribution they j
were dismissed. His roads wore oth-
erwlEo favored oy tho Prosldont that
his money holpod to loct"
A slnglo presidential term. Senator i
Works raid, would provent the use of
patronage and the power of office in
tho way It Is now used. He urged
that campaign contributions only bo
mado by tho state or nation, declaring
that "large campaign funds, however
raisod, nro a dangerous menaco to
the freo Institutions of the country."
Mr. Works, In conclusion, aald It ,
would havo boen much better for tho
country If President Tait nnd Colonel , m
Rooaovolt had been ineliglblo for ro- '
election.
