City Commissioners and
Commercial Club's Special
Committee Hold Long
Legislature Will Be Asked to
Permit Salt Lake to In
crease Bonding Limit
to 12 Per Cent.
Preliminary steps to insure for Salt
Lake City a water wupply uysteni equal
to any future growth the city may attain
were taken by thc city commissioners
yesterday following a conference with the
Commercial club's special water com
mittee at which thc urgent need of
spending millions of dollars for thc Im
provement of the water supply waa laid
A resolution was adopted instructing j
thc city attorney to draft a bill calling
for an amendment to the state constitu
tion whereby the city's limit of bonded
indebtedness will be Increased from 8
to 32 per cent of the assessed valu
ation. ThlfJ bill will be Introduced at tho
present legislature. It will call for a
vote of the people on thc amendment at
thc next regular election. Thin done, tho
city will call a special election at which
tho people of the city will be asked to
authorize a bond Issue of probably W,
oOO.OOO to be used exclusively for water
Raise of $3,000,000.
The proposed amendment, if passed,
will increase the city's bonding limit
from about 35,000,000 at present tq about
$8,000,000 and will make available for
water improvements Including the amount
not yet issued under ihe present limit, a
total of about .is.630,000. il was agreed
that this entire amount is necessary to
make proper provisions for the future
nccde of thc city.
How to spend this money so as lo
bring the maximum amount of water to
the city was discussed for two hours yes
terday at tho .Joint conference. A sys
tem of reservoirs lo guard against emer
gency, enlargement of the present dis
tributing system to handle whatever ad
ditional water may be secured, and the
acquiring, either by purchase or develop
ment of a vastly increased regular daily
supply from the watersheds surrounding
the city, were the most important steps
A Gigantic Plan.
The members of the Commercial club
committee present at the meeting were
Richard 11. Lyman. O. A. Ilonnold, E. F.
Colburn and Lafayotte Hanchett. The
commission mado tho visitors acquainted
with ltu present plans for Improvement,
Its financial limitations und laid out in a
general way thc plana that must be
followed If a comprehensive enlargement
of the watur supply is to be achieved.
It was agreed that temporal' Improve
ments now Lv;lng considered by thc com
missioners, such as additional conduits to
carry more water from the present
sources of supply, whllo csncntlal to the
Immediate solution of the problem, should
give way to a gigantic plan which will
insure the city ample water for all time.
Judso Colburn of tho committee, led the
discussion. Ho declared, that tho city hud
come to a crucial point in Its devour
ment, "where it could no longer evade thc
great issues that must bo mot if the
city is to continue In Mb growth. He
eaid that the water question had como
to he a. paramount one, and one with
! which the city could afford to dally no
longer. ITe suggested that a detailed
I survey o" tho entire watershed on whjch
thc city han to denend for Its supply be
mado lo determine accurately juct what
water Is available, cither by purchase,
tiling on new water or development of the
; souroc of supply. The second step, ho
said, should be to provide the finances
necessary' to utlllro' thlt; water. Ho de
clared himself in favor of a great bond
issue, running Into milllonu, to carry on
this work, and urged Immediate action by
thc commission to that end.
Appeal to Lawmakers.
Professor .Lyman, after learning that
the city had practically exhausted Its
bonding limit, suggested that the present
legislature bo appealed to. He was con
fident, ho Bald, that the legislature. If
mado acquainted with tho facts, would
not hesitate to take the Htc'ps necessary
to Incrcaso thc bonding limit to 12 per
cent of the assessed valuatlou.
After a long discussion of this matter
Commissioner It. P. Morris entered a
resolution instructing the city attorney lo
proceed at onco with a hill celling for
such an amendment, and the resolution
passed unanimously.
Sylvester .Cannon, city water engineer,
Informed the conference tliat one of thc

Undergo Rigorous Cross-
By International News Service.
LOS ANGELES, Feb. A. Clarence S.
Darrow, former chief counsel In thc Mc
Xama case, this afternoon stood before
his accuser, Bert Frankllnk and In a most
rigorous cross-examination forced one
scathing question after another at the
state's -principal witness In an attempt to
shako Franklin's story that he, Darrow,
had authorised the bribery of Juror Rob
ert Bain.
Thc most important point brought out
In Darrow's cross-examination was' thc
fact that although Franklin had testi
fied that his conversation .with Darrow
In regard to Jury bribing was- on Octo
ber 5 und Darrow wrote and gavo him a
checlc for SI 000 on October 6, part of
which he gave lo Juror Bain the same
day, tho check Franklin Identified as hav
ing cashed was dated Octobor .
Earl Rogers, Darvow's - chief connsel,
being absent on account of Ulncse." If
wan expected that Judge O. W. Powers,
assoclalo counsel, would cross-examine
Franklin, but when thc state's principal
witness had finished his direct testi
mony, in which he stated that he himself
had bribed McNamara Juror, Robert Bain;
that he had acted on the advice of Dar
row and that he had reported to the
McNamani chler counsel regarding the
matter afterwards, Darrow arose and
asked the question:
"You are a detective, still?"
Darrow. at first apparently heated and
excited later moro poised and reserved
but all tho tlmo vindictive and bitter
towurd tho man who sut In tho witnchS
clinlr, carried Franklin through his past
history, up to the tlmo of his connection
with tho McNamara defense, and then
questioned him cloBely as to the allega
tions he had mado on direct examina
tion. Franklin, like a porcupine at bay, stif
fened hlm'ielf in tho wltnoss chair, as
sumed a belligerent nttltudo'nnd to all
of Darrow's questions returned sharp, sar
castic, curt replies.
The cross-examinations took on tho as
pect of a heated verbal conflict, full of
harsh retort and' scathing.' bitter (sar
casm. Several times Judgi; Conlcy had
to warn Franklin against engaging In
a personal argument with Darrow, and
ordered him to answer the other's ques
tions directly.
Earlier in the day Mrs. Bain, wife of
the Juror, whom Darrow is accused or
having bribed, was on the stand. As
sho told how Franklin appioaehwl her
and induced her to work on her hus
band to acrept a brlbn. her voice choked
and she nearly collapsed In thc witness
