"SUNDAY CLOSING" MEHjEIS KILLED House Strikes Oui Enacting Clause After Earnest and Impassioned Debate. Sunday closing went, to dofeat iu tho house yestnrduy. Cardon's bill pro- hibitinc practically every kind of sport and amusement on Sunday was de feated, 21 to lo. Tho bill was taken up on spocial order at 3 o'clock, and just as tho clook was striking 5 tho vote was an nounced that struck out tho enact ing clause of the bill. Between 3 o'clock and 5 o'elook thoro was much debate. The opponents of tho bill made strong arguments on thc general propositions that public sentiment must be behind all legislation in ordor to mako it ef fective; thac a stato caunot legislate people into churches if they do not want to go thero; that tho passage of the bill would deprive tho people of Salt Lake of 90 per cent of the amusement they now enjoy; that cities, towns and coun ties, were amply supplied with authority under their charter powers to enact Sunday closing legislation if they wanted to. Woman Member Scores. Dr. .Tane W. Skolfiold of Salt Lako, ono of thc three women mcmbors of the house, mado perhaps the most lucid argument against the bill that wns heard during thc two hours of debate. Inasmuch as Dr. Skolfiold is known to bo a staunch believer in thc religious faith which she holds, tlyiro could bo no 'mistaking her motives when she spoko in opposition to the measure. Tho matter camo up on tho bill itself, the majority and minority committoo reports being laid aside. "Welling of Box Elder proposed an amendment, which prevailed, that Tin-thing and other resorts be brought within tho terms of tho bill. Pago secured tho adoption of an amendment including in thoso guilty of violation of tho act persons who bought tickets to bathing rosorts or other prohibited 'iniusemonts. Swonson of Tooele ' proposed an' amendment striking out tho words ' ' barbarous or noisy" in connection with amusements, so that thc bill would have prohibited amusements of any and all kinds- The amendment was de feated, aficr a few members had talkod very seriously on this adroit little joker, Would Exempt I heaters. The real business in connection with the bill came whoa Henrie of Garfield moved lo strike from thc bill reference to theaters and moving picturo shows. Judd of Salt Lake, who was in the chair, tried to confine the discussion to the amendment, but as everybody wan dred awav from the amendment al most as soon as ho began talking, the debate took in the entire bill. Cardon of Cache, author oi- tho bill, was tho first to speak. Ho supported his measure, saying that it was very desirable that everybody should have a day of rest and calling attention par. ticnlarly to tho fact that tho persons who provide the Sunday amusements aro compelled to work. Ho also pre sented Ihn fnrthor lact, as ho alloged, that Sunday amusements disturbed (Continued on Pago Eight.) SELECTION OF HUERTA HOT-TO THEJUIKl Col. Pascual Orozco, Sr., and Col.
