It is important to note that in tho report of paid subscribers elimina

sand below tho amount of net paid circulation as universally dotermined by news
papers and advertisers. Rulings of tho PostoflLce Department and the Attorney

Practically tho entire list of paid subscribers, as 6hown in the roport, is
servod diroct from Tho Tribune, tho only additions being a small number served
by news doalore who contract to toko and pay for a flxod number of papers dBily.
Among thoso excluded aro approximately 400 news dealers, some of whom han

streets, which run from 000 to 800 on week da-s to nearly "6900 on Sundays, in
Salt Lake City alone. Likewise, papors Bold on news stands, at hotols and on

Postoffice Department to In

WASHINGTON, Oct. 4. Postmaster
Genoral Burleson is proparing to insti
tute a rigid investigation of tho state
ments of circulation filed in the postof
flco dopartmont by the nowspapers of
tho country under tho law roquirlng
such statement twico a year.
The department hold3 that circula
tion as defined by the law means tho
net paid circulation of tho newspapors.
Complaints have boon reaching the de
partment that many papers have based
their circulation reports on distribution
other than which is not paid and inves
tigation and prosecution of all such of
fenses i3 planned.
Tho piano of the department are be-
ing supported by the leading newspa
pers of tho country on tho ground that
the law will bo valueless unless tho ut
most exactness in circulation statements
1b enforcod.
The investigation wIU bo conduoted
through tbo postal Inspectors through
out tho country and a comploto report
on all statements will bo gathorod with
in a short time. The first investiga
tions will bo directed against the newfl
papors concerning which complaints
have boon filed, but a goneral investi
gation of all tho statomonts on file is
expected to be made.
Whoro it is established that tho law
has been doliboratoly evaded, rigorous
prosecutions will follow to servo as a
warning that both tho letter and tho
spirit of the law muBt bo mot.

BHADISON, Wis., Oct. 4. Of tho

marks as to the cause af doath. TheBe
doath certificates generally aro filled
out by a local physician and mailed to

A mothor, "diod in infancy."
"Went to bed fooling well, but woke
up dead."
"Diod suddenly at tbo ago of 103.

"Died suddenly; nothing serious."

Name Committee of Eighteen
to Submit Ideas for Indorse
ment of Candidate for
Utah Marshalship.
Fifty Men Are Designated to
Consider Question of Im
mediate Establishment of
Party Organ.
Eighteon prominent Utah Democrats
will try to roconcilo tho differences
botweon tho National Committeeman
W. B. Wallaco and the members of tho
Democratic stato committeo, with spe
cial reference to agreeing on a candi
date for United Stales marshal. They
were selected yesterday at a meeting
of tho Democratic slate committee, and
they will meet at 10 o'clock this morn
ing to dclibcrato on tbo issue. They
will report at 8 o'clock tonight at an
adjourned mooting of tbo stato com
mittee. Just how the harmony committee of
eightoeu will arrive at a decision was
not made clour in tho plan by which
they- woro appointed. One suggestion
that has been made is that tho com
mitteo divido into two teams of nino
on a sido, and let one side rcprcsont
tho state committoo and tho other tho
national committeeman, and play ball
to decido tho question. If the scorer
doesn't get rattled wo may tbon know
who is to succeed James H. Anderson
as United States marshal.
Tho question of getting togothor with
tho national committeeman on candi
dutos for federal office was not on tho
scheduled business of tbc stato com
mitteo for its mooting yesterday. How
ovor, thoro were divers rumors as to
things that might happen, aud no one
was surprised when tho marshalship
oontest wont bctforo tho committoo un
dor tho general miBnomcr of "har
mony." Trouble Averted.
Soveral times during tho meeting yes
terday afternoon thero appeared to bo
dangor of something breaking, but trou
ble was avortod by James II, Moylc,
who took the "Wallacc-Thurmau prizo as
tho beat little peace-maker of the meet
ing. At his suggestion a harmony com
mitteo of seven was named to which
was added tho national committeeman
and tbo state chairman. This commit
too met aud modestly decided that it
was not wholly competent to promote
harmony. At tbo evening session of the
stato committeo tho sub-committeo on
harmony asked to bo cnlraged by the
appointment of seven members of tbo
stato committee tho original commit
too having boen composed largely of
Democrats not members of the state
!First, however, the stato committee
enlarged tho original committeo by add
ing tho namoa of J. P. Tolton, candi
date for governor a yoar ago, and Till
man D. Johnson, candidate for congress.
Then seven members of the stato com
mittoo woro added.
As it now 6tands tbo harmony com
mittee iB composed of National Commit
teeman W. B. Wallace, Stato Chairman
S. B. Thurmau, J. P. Tolton, of Beaver,
Mathouibab Thomas of Salt Lake, Till
man D. Johnson of Ogden, James II.
Moylo, John Dern, of Salt Lake, Jesse
Knight, of Provo, .1. It. Letcher, of Salt
Lake, W. II. King, of Salt Lake, D. 8.
Cook, of Ogdcn, VilHum Edwards, of
Logan, E. V, Brown, of St. Georjio, II.
N. Hayes, of Richfield, Hcbcr O. Meoks,
of Kannb, J. L. Boydcn, of Coalville,
9. S. Smith, of Ogdcn, and B W. King
of Fillmore.
Will Meet Today.
This committee will spend tho Sab
bath In dIacii3slii-- harmony, at the ofilcc
of Judgo S. R. Thuniinn in the Walkor
Dunk bulIdlnK- The action of the com
mittee under tho Moylu rwolutlon Is not
to bo considered final until ratillcd by tho
ttato committeo nt Its meeting this
ovonlner at tho Woodmen hull. Tho reso
lution under which the committeo la act
ing moroly empowers It to devise a plan
to adjust dirfuxonces. "If any thero he,"
between thu stnte committeo und the na
tional committeeman.
Tho chiof difference to be adjusted 13
in tho appointment of a Unitod States
murahnl for Utah. The stato committee
rocommended A nulla Nobekor for tho
place, but National Committeeman Wal
laco dlsarood und recommended the ap
polntmont of Georgo A. StorrH. As n re
sult, thoro has been a deadlock since last
If tho subcommittee can agreo, it Ib
likely that It will make a slate of candi
dates for tho various federal offlcoa and
aHk that tho national committeeman and
the stato committee agree on theso rec
ommendations in order that the appoint
ments may bo speedily made.

pany is treating from 25,000 to 40a000
tons of copper ore per day. And thu
development of that great property is
going along baud in hand with others
6f creator or less magnitude. Tho ad

lated not only silver mining but has
brought a roncwnl of activity in tho
mining of all procious metals."
Mr. Nowhouso also spoko words of
unstinted praiso for Salt Lako City.
"Tho mining industr- has bad much
to do with the development of Salt
Lako City," he continued. "Moro ore
is actually handled thero than all other
cities combined, and it is the greatest
smelting point in the countrj'. No other
citj' in America is developing more
rapidly than Salt Lako City."
Mr. Nowhouso roturnod recently lo
