While crossing the Wintnrop glacier
yesterday Major Ingraham mpde a

by way of which the ascent to the sum

that the ice and snow was so broken
up that an attempt to climb up would
have proven disastrous Consequently
the summit was not attempted
The expedition has been an entire
success It has demonstrated that
while the mountain has been both
smoking and steaming the ch tinge is
due principally to tremendous ava
lanches and not to an eruption The

WHAT DOES IT MEAN I
Fact or Fiction About Two Groat Fair
Awards
A newspaper paragraph denounces as
false the claim of a baking powder
company to an award at the Worlds
Fair Whom can it mean
Certainly not Dr Prices Why Be
cause as the records show Dr Prices
exhibited competed and received the
highest award both at Chicago and the
California Midwinter Fair The award
in California included Gold Medal The
official examiners pronounced it the
strongest the purest the moat whole
some and efficient of all the baking
powders Its title to confidenc is un
questioned
Can it be the manufacturers of a New
York powder fictitiously labelledabso
lutely pure who are making false
claims That would be strange indeed
inasmuch iS they were not even con
sidered In the awards
Was it Ammonia in the New York
powder that prevented its makers from
competing If not what

FIRST DISTRICT COURT
The Bier Suit Over the Triangular Iron
Fence Near the Provo U P Depot
Being Tried Today
The first business taken up before
Judge King in the First District court
today was the case brought against the
Rio Grande Western Railway com
pany by the Union Pacific Railway and
Provo city The case is entitled The
Oregon Short Line Utah Northern
Railwav company and Provo City VP
The Rio Grande Western Railway
company and is brought to compel the
Western to remove the triangular iron
Fence inclosing a grass plot just north i
and a little east of the Union Pacific
depot which Provo city through action
of its council has declared a public
nuisance Tne railway company not
only asks that the fence be removed
but asks for damages alleged to have
been sustained in consequence of the
fence having been there so long
Judge Marshall first interposed a
demurrer to the complaint alleging
that the railway company and the city
corporation cannot legally be joined in
tlis suit The demurrer was ar
gued pro and con by t d
toanevs for the apace of ha f
an hour The demurrer was overrulad
and the attorneys for both sides stated
their respective sides of the case which
is now being tried The judge is heat
ing and carefully weighing all the
evidence
There are many intricate questions
involved in this cause as to the right
of the defendant company fencing in a
portion of ground over which the public
has traveled uninterruptedly t venty
years or more ae to whether the city
really owns the land in qustion or
whether it belongs to the defendant
company etc etc The history of the
ownership of the land is being followed
through James Dunn Peter Stubbs A
G Sutherland The Utah Pleasant
Valley Railway company and the
present owners the Rio Grande Well
ern > Railway company and others who
owned it previously The city alleges
that the deed given by Mr Sutherland
specified up to an 8 rod sheet J The
street running eastand west just north
of the depot as platted is only a 4rod
street with one rod left to be ued
when wanted On the other part of
the eight rods is situated the tri
angular inclosed grass plot in question
THACKERAY WAS ANGR
L 1
Tho Sailors Who lutemlcihTllaj i1ITIcI
Changed Their Hinds
Once upon a time the daughters of
Thackeray saw that good man thorough
ly and heartily angryangry to tho
point of profanity It was during their
Italian journey when they wore ro
turning to the ship in Genoa harbor aft
er a day on the shore
We had to be on board at a certain
time JJ Mrs Ritohie says in her Mac
millan paper so that we engaged a
carriage and drove quickly to the quay
where the convicts clanking in their
chains were still at work A boat was
found rowed by some sailors who cer
tainly did not wear chains but who
were otherwise not very unlike thoso
industrious convicts in appearance Tho
bargain was made we all five entered
the boat and as we were getting in we
could see our great ship in the twilight
looking bigger than ever and one rock
et and then another going off toward
the dawning stars
They are signaling for ussaid
one of our companions We shall soon
be > on board
We had pulled some 20 strokes from
the shore by this time when suddenly
the boatmen loft off rowing They put
down their oars and one of theipbei
talking volubly though I ozrrrld not un
derstand what he said i Whats to be
done said one of the young men to my
father They say they wont go on un
less we give them 50 francs more and
he began shaking his head and remon
strating in broken Italian The boat
men paid no attention shrugging their
shoulders and waiting as if they were
determined never to row another stroke
Then the steamer sent up two more
rockets whioh rose through the twilight
light bidding us hurry and then sud
denly my father rose up in the stern of
the boat where he was sitting and
standing tall and erect and in an anger
such as I had never seen him in before
or after in all my life he shouted out
in loud and impatient English D
you go oul I a simple malediction which
carried more force than all the Italian
polysyllables and expostulations of our
companions To our surprise and great
relief the men seemed frightened they
took to their oars again and began to
row grumbling and muttering When
we got on board the ship they told us
it was a well known trick the Genoeso
boatmen were in the habit of playing
upon travelers and that they would have
I sent longer a boat for us if wo had delayed any I

SENATORS AND BASEBALL
err Hill of New York Tells About the First
Time He Met Mr Gorman
Senator Hill tells an interesting story
about the first time he ever saw Senator
Gorman It was long before they both
became famous and the incident was
not recalled until Senator Hill became
a follow senator with the Maryland lead
er and it was found that both were very
fond of the national game of baseball
It was back in jho sixties JJ said
Senator Hill when everybody was in
terested in baseball There was a con
vention in New York city The citie
alflDg the Atlantic const attended I
was delegate from Elmira represent
ing theAlerts I remember that the
president of the convention knew noth
ing about parliamentary law and it
was not long before we were in a tangle
and with no prospect of being extricat
ed Then they got a little fellow in the
chair who knew all about tho way to
handle a convention and he soon had
things runniilg smoothly He held heni
flow I tell you I forgot who ho was
and never recalled until after coming to
Washington when I was talking about
tho meeting with Senator Gorman and
he said he was there and presided And
he was He represented the old Nat m
Ills of Washington JJ
While there are other senators who
enjoy baseball none are such devotees
as Senators Hill and Gorman The
Maryland senator has not found time to
indulge his inclination this season as
he has been too busy getting a tariff
bill through the senate whiah Senator
Hill has been trying to defeat Mr Hill
attends every game played here

Women and Learning
Statistics collected by the regents of
tho University of New York shows that
in tho secondary schools there are 23
656 girls of academic grade and 18243
boys Last year more than two thirds
of the 438 honor certificates went to
girls In the colleges there are 292b
girls and 4043 in the professional and
technical schools Many other young
women are studying law medicine
painting and music The United States
census of 1890 gave the number of wom
en teachers as 288897 In their report
pca these statistics the regents remark
The remarkable development of wom
ans higher education is due to widespread
spread recognition that a college course
is needed as the best preparation for
wifehood motherhood and home life as
much as for a professional n
If Guilty Forgiveness Is Assured
The mortality among newspapers in
the United States during the past 18
months has been something almost un
precedented In New York state lono
878 newspapers suspended between
June 1893 and June 1894 For the first
time since 1869 the total number cata
logued by the newspaper directory ia
less than for the preceding year This
is said to be clue to hard times caused
by the Democratic free trado panic but
t is is one of tho things for which that
party will most assuredly be forgiven
If ho who makes two blades of grass to
grow where but one grew before is B
benefactor of his kind what shall be
