! Favor of Inspection in
Every Department.
' Resolutions Adopted Condemn
, ing Patent Nostrums; Con
vention Elects Officers.
Dr, E. G. Hushes. Provo, president,
and Dr. H. A. Adamson, Rlclimond. vice
president, wore the officers unanimously
elected for the ensuing yenr'by the Utah
Association of Health Officers, just be
fore the adjournment, of the fourth an
nual convention Tuesday afternoon. Dr.
, Hughes, who lias been vice president of
the association for the term just closed,
I succeeds Dr. F. E. Clark of Logan.
a At Tuesday's session a number of in-
, terestlng and instructive papers were
given by members of the association, and
resolutions were adopted declaring tlvs
association In favor of medical supervi
sion In .U1 public schools, and recom
mending that medical supervision be

To Prevent Blindness.
B Tuesday's meeting was called to order
1 by President Clark and after ten mln-
H utes of general discussion among the
B members, Dr. Fred Stauffcr of this city
H was introduced as the first speaker. Dr.
j Stauffer had as his subject "The Proven-
j Hon of Blindness," and his remarks were
H replete with valuable suggestions along
1 preventative measiives,
B Dr. Stauffcr gave statistical figures
BVJI .covering the records, and causes of blind
H ness In various parts of the world. He
BVM "yiiat concerns us. most is the per-
H centage of all blindness that is due to
VJ preventable causes, and what must be
J done to prevent It. Records show- that
BVJ - an average of at least 35 per cent of all
BVJ the cases of blindness are due to pre-
VJ von tabic- causes. This means that 17,500
VJ out of the f.0.000 cases of blindness re-
J: turned by the eleventh United States
J I'ensua could have been prevented If
J proper prophylaxes and treatment lia-J
Hi been Instituted."
BVJ The speaker made a plea for leglsla-
BVJj , tion which will - make it necessary in
BVJ! Utah, as it already is In several stales
BWJ in this country, and in CJermanv and oth-
J er parts of Europe, for midwives and
J nurses to report to the proper health of-
i fleJnls all symptoms of eye troubles they
BWj may find In new-born Infants, Dr.
, Stauffcr also urged strict enforcement of
Wj, laws intended to prevent the use of toy
BVJI pistols and air guns by children. With
these features given prompt attention
J ' and with great care on the part of those
VJ affected with eye troubles to prevent ln-
S fecting others with the trouble, tho
H 1 speaker said thai much will have been
VJ accomplished toward preventing bhnd-
iichk, where such an affliction Is pre
BV 1 ventable.
" Condemns Patent Medicines.
B x Dr. W. R. Calderwood, the next speak-
' 1 er. took occasion to condemn patent
'' medicine nostrums in general, and in
I ' particular he expressed his disgust at
the manner In which certain "home
i , made" patent medicines are being rcc-
V - v ommended to the people of this state on
the plea of "home industries," by being
placed on exhibition along wltji Utah's
BV really legitimate and proper enterprises.
' Dr. Calderwood quoted statistics show-
ing that $75,000,000 is expended annual-
. ly for patent medicines in the United
States, despite the fight that is being
made against them, and he said that all
the people get In return for this money
B is alcohol, opium, cocaine and morphine.
Bi "It Is the policy of the patent medl-
cine mnkers." said Dr. Calderwood. "to
B give the people something that thev will
B come for again. That Is why the patent
medicines on tho market todav are com
posed largely of drugs and alcohol, which
create a taste or a habit, which the user
is soon unable to overcome."
' Dr. T. B. Deatty. in the discussion
which followed Dr. Calderwood's paper.
i complimented Utah on having been
T among the" very first states to demand
, pure fond labels, and he urged that still
further legislation he asked for, until
patent medicines are driven out of the
state entirely.
The Teachers' Part.
I G. X. Child of the Salt Lake City
schools followed with a paper on "The
Teachers' Relation to Schoolroom Sanita
tlon." Mr. Child Raid, in part:
I "Today more importance is attacked to
' the physical well-being in determining
1 efficiency for life than ever berore. We
are beginning to realise that Intellectual
lty rests primarily upon a physical basis,
and that moral quality is determined
largely by physical Illness.
,, "Physical health and vigor are regarded
f as our greatest natlofral asset, measured
,, both by their direct and by their indirect
influences. Their preservation and pro-
motion has therefore become a problem
for the educators as vi'll as for the pliy-
slclan. There Is a demand that the laws
of physical growth, the science of sani-
i tation. and ho.w to prevent sickness shall
constitute an Important part of the
: teacher's preparation. The teacher who
U has become such a vital factor In the
civilization of our day. and whose duties
have been to deal with problems of a
mental nature, must take on additional
responsibility as to the physical welfare
B of the child, becoming rompetent to
l judge sanitary matters and expert, In the
I adjustment of equipment or in directing
A', appropriate physical activity.
J "The teacher is in a position to do
y much. She Is the ever present factor in
72 the school room. I commend to tho
health ofriccrs here assembled the plan
' V of meeting with .the teachers and school
y, officers for tho pnrpofc of directing and
encouraging teachers in their effprts
J toward desirable results. Tn a number
f of school districts of the state teachers
s and health officers have boon meeting
i j together In. an orgnnized canncltv for
t s i the frenuent discussion of health prob-
j l?ms with excellent results. It would be
f, j In the interests of pcIioo! mom sanitation
14. If Ihn practice were more general."
k 1 Danger of Typhoid.
' i ' Dr. F. K. Slonunskfy of Holper gave
i a concise address on "Tho Prevention of
i Typhoid Fever," e.xplninlnrr the methods
of sonltation and the requirements of
j . cleanliness necessary to successful!- com-
! , . bat this disease, nnd giving valuable
j i ' hints to health officers to aid them In
their work. One of the original features
,- i of Dr. Slopanskey's address was his men-
1 . tlon of a. common means of tv, snreadlng
h of tyohold fever cerms. though one that
j;. has Ieen overlonk'd to a great extent
i In the past. That Is the Infection com

look is for Resumption.
Rids aggregating 5250.000 on construc
tion work on the Ncwhouse hotel wore
opened and discussed by the executive
committee of the hotel company at a
mooting held Tuesday afternoon. At the
end of the meeting It was given out that
work un the building will go forward as
rapidly ;is possible.
Part of the bids opened were passed
upon by the committee and accepted, in
cluding, those for brick work, plumbing,
heating and the like. Further consider
ation, it is said, will be given the other
bids at an early meeting of tho commit
ter Within tlie next few days painters will
complete the work of painting the steel
work of the building, according to the
committee. From wbtit was given out
by the executive committee following the
meeting. It Is to be taken that construc

conditions permitting.
Members of the committee present at

Montana Man Doesn't Look for Election
of Senator at This Session of
Mr. and Mrs. Phillips Gibson of Great
Falls, Mont., arrived in the city Tues
day and. after a fw days' stay In Salt
Lake, with headquarters at tho Knuts
ford. will continue their journey to Snn
Gibson Is president of- the Electric
Land company of Great Falls. Speaking
of Salt. Lake, he said:
"I passed through Salt Lake tblrty-twn
years ago with inv parents on our way
to Montana. My father. Pails Gibson, a
former United Stntes senator of that
state, laid out the city of Great Falls.
"I. have been, here once, or perhaps
twice, since, and the more I sen of Salt
Lake the better 1 like It. We of the
w.eat look uin this city as the great
metropolitan city of this Inland empire.
It would be a disastrous freak of nature.
Indeed, that could possibly Inhibit the
onward march of Salt Lake. The natu
ral resources of the vast, country tribu
tary to Salt Lake In agriculture, horti
culture, stock-raising, nnd a mining
region that for permanency, extent and
richness arc the wonder of the world,
tend to emphasize what I have said, that
this Is the destined metropolitan city of
the west, and the most important from a
business point of view in the intcrmoun
taln country."
"How about, business conditions In
Montana. In Great Falls?" was asked.
"Business conditions In Montana are
all that could be reasonably desired."
was the reply. "Times are good. There
was more land located In Montana last
year by actual settlers than in any other
state. The locations for 1910 were far
greater than ever before In Montana.
Great Falls Is reaping Its share of this
prosperity. We have the greatest water
power in the world, now In business use;
we have a fall of 500 feet on the Mis
souri river within n distance of twelve
miles. The Amalgamated smelters are
running full time, and when this Is the
case Great Falls Is prosperous.
"With the advent of the 3t. Paul road,
we will have three continental railroad
lines which open tho gates of business
to our city from the east to the west and
the south."
"What is your opinion of tho senatorial
deadlock In- your state, and what do you
think will be the result?"
"I don't think a United States senator
will be elected at this session. They are
locked now, and. I think, locked for
keeps. The Democrats will not come to
gether, and the Idea that enough Demo
crats will go over to elect Carter Is pre
j.)sterous. A dark horse Is possible, but.
in my opinion, not probable to be
An increase in the appropriation for
state road construction from $27,000 to
?60,000 Is recommended in the first bi
ennial report of the slate road commis
sion, just filed with tho governor. The
commission, which was provided for in
a statute approved March 23. 1909. con
sists of Governor William Spry, F. P. Ly
man. Caleb Tanner. David Mutts on and
J. W. Jensen.. The report also recom
mends that tho standard cross section
be so modified as to leave this feature of
construction largely to the discretion of
the commission. This already has been
recommended to tho legislature.
The report says that the legislature
should provide funds for paying the ex
penses of the state road commission and
also provide for the employment of a
road expert.
With the funds appropriated for state
road construction by the last legislature
sixty miles have been constructed In Box
Elder county, thirty-eight miles In Cache
couty, fifty-eight miles in Juab countv.
sixty miles In Summit countv. forty-five
miles In Rich county and fifty miles In
Tooele county, it is recited.

Public Water Supply.
President Dr. F. E. Clark addressed
the convention on the "Public Water
Supply." and covered in detail the
sources of tho state's water supply, the
danger of contamination to which it Is
exposed, steps which have bocn taken to
prevent such contamination, and urged
further legislation to still further lessen
th danger to public health from this
I3efor the convention adjourned Dr
Beatty urged the health officers to Use
more care in preparing complete records
of vital statistics for the use of the
state board of health in its monthly re
ports and for its flies, and Invited the
members to visit him at his office to
get what information or instruction they
micht need.
TUf convention was spoken of by Dr,
Bon My as bolnir one of the most' suc
cessful In the history of the organization,
and ho looks for good results to follow
tho mooting. Xcxt year It is probable thnt
the papers and discussions will be limited
to Ices tlmp, so that tho subjects of In

Many of the members returned to their

American Woman's League De
cides to Establish Home on'
East Bench.
Active Work io Be Started as
Soon as National Directors
Ratify Choice.
The llrsL chapter house of the Ameri
can Woman's league to bo built in tho
slate Is assured for the near future.
The assurance was given Tuesday night
at a meeting of the league held in the
parlors of the Kenyon hotel when, in
accordance with the action of tho lot
committee, taken earlier in tho day. the
league voted almost unnnlmously to ac
cept the magnificent offer of the Douglas
Park people, made through Walter .1.
Meuks, or u building site In the center
of their addition. There were sixty-two
membui-s present, who were paid up and
hnd the privilege of u. decisive vote on
the proposition, and of those sixty were
for the acceptance and two against It.
The site Js one of tho most desirable
on the whole east bench. It Is un arrow
head shaped piece . of land, comprising
about one acre of ground, and tho girt
carries with It an option on Ihe two
corners cut out or the triangle, which the
leugue may hold for two years of may
purchase outright. IL will mean that the
club will bo a recreation club for the
league members and their friends, and
will also mean that the full amount to
be drawn from the parent organization
may be put Into the building Instead of
using any money for the purchase of a
site, an action which would have- been
necessary to obtain any other site con
sidered. The sum which may be expended,
therefore, probably will reach well
toward Sin. 000 Instead of the $10,000, as
at first suggested. This Increase is due
largely to tl.e fact that within the past
few days many new 'members have been
added to the league, bringing the mem
bership In this territory alone un to well
above the 100 mark. As every additional
thirty members adds $1000 to the money
to be spent on the clubhouse, it is likoly
that before ground is broken for the
house the chapter will be able to draw
the full $15,000
The telegram announcing the accept
ance of the site by a practically unani
mous vote will bo sent today to the
headquarters of the league, a committee
of which hns power yet to accept or re
ject the local chapter's choice. This. It
is thought, will amount to a mere for
mality, as the slfo is beyond dispute de
sirable, being worth at the present valu
ation about $7000. exclusive of the two
corners on which Ihe league will hold an
option for the next two years. It Is not
at all likely that there will be any ob
jection on the part of the St. Louis
board of directors.
Once the papers are accepted confirm
ing the deed, the time before the actual
work Is begun will be short, and In all
probability the local chapter will have
a. most desirable chapter house complet
ed within tho next two years. The
chapter houses already erected through
out the United States vary In cost from
$10,000 to $10,000 ,-ipIece. several ol the
large cities, whoso chapters comprise
thousands of women, having chapter
houses costing the last-named sum. The
plans for the house will be drawn by lo
cal architects, buL accepted by the head

the sum of $20.917. 425.20. This amount
falls slightly below the clearings for

the clearings have shown decreases since

rant Issued on a complaint which was
found to be faulty, and Ihe case was
dismissed. Another complaint was
sworn to. however, and he was ar
rested again, but no new warrnnt was
served, he alleged. To this he refused
to plead, whereupon the city marshal
entered a plea of not guilty for him. and
he was trlod and convicted of violating
the ordinance, for which he was sen
tenced to servo fifty days in jail and
pay a fine of $50, in default of which
he should servo fifty days' additional
Chappie contended that this procedure
was illegal, but when the caso was
taken to the fourth district court the
action of the justice court was upheld.
Chappie, therefore, applied to the su
premo court for a writ of habeas corpus,
and Justice Frlck. in his order, holds
that procedure In the justice court was
not legal, In that no formal action had
been taken with reference to the ar
rest of Chappie.
