I SIMON ISSUES A LETTER
A Humor that a Fifty Cent Rate Will be
Given the Working Men to Ogden
on the Fourth
OUrl
Tnn HERALD has known for several
days that considerable dissatisfaction ex
isted among the laboring classes of this
city over what they aro pleased to call a
snub at the nands of the chamber of com
merce or its committees who have the
JFourthof July celebration in charge In
order to get at the facts in the matter a
HERALD reporter yesterday made inquiries
among those who arc in a position to speakson
I authoritatively on the subject anfl this
1 morning wo give tho simple facts as we
gleaned Ulem It seems that at
a meeting of the Federated Trades
council on May 1 a committee was ap
pointed to confer with the chamber of com
merce as to a proper observance of the
Fourth of July On May 15 tho committee
waited on the secretary of the chamber
vho received them very courteously and
took their names and addresses saying that
Le world communicate with them But
there it seems tho matter ended A few
days later a full list of the committees
was published in the daily papers
dalv
but without a single name of
any member of the labor organizations
appearing among them At the last regu
lar meeting of the Federated Trade on
theSoth instant the committee made their
icport as being totally ignored by the
chamber of commerce and I was resolved
that the council tale no further action in
the matter but leave it t all labor organi
nations to do what they thought proper in
dayWith the matter of celebrating the National holi
With the exception of the letter issued
yesterday by Acting President Simon no
other communication has been received by
any member of the organization The
3 laboring classes feel hurt over tho matter
more so on account of tho great effortsad
r they made last year in getting up a general
celebration on the National holiday
THE LETTER ISSUED TESTERBAY
Following is the letter issued by Acting
President Simon and received by Mr
Sleater
u J Slcatcr Esq President Federated Trades
City I
MY DEAR SrnIn this mornings Tribune I I I
noticed an article referring to Salt Lake citys I
Fourth of July celebration which seems to Infer
hat tho chamber of commerce general commit I
tee has not properly recognized tho Federated
Trades of this rrl I think a careful investiga
ton of the facts will show that such was not the
intention of the committee nor has such thing 1
been done It has all along been the Intention
te intenton
of the
committees invitation and programme
street parade ond they were so instructed by
the chamber of commerce general committee
to extend invitations in person and formally to
representatives of allmilitarr civic and kindred
organizations in this city This these commit
tees are doing in routine and at the same time
are asking and receiving suggestions requests
and advice from the several representatives hi
representatves i
regard to the best steps to be taken to insure
isuro
the entire satisfaction of all concerned and to
make our celebration in every way n grand suc
cess and a thing of which every man interested
in the welfare of Salt Lake city may feel justly
proud I i their request and hope that
not a feature of busines
or Industry or
enterprise which will tend t show t strangers
what Salt Lake citys resources and possi
bites arc shall i any way be hampered r
larded or slighted These
committees
1ared slghted commitees were
even clothed with authority t tako steps with
out waiting for a meeting of the general com
mittee to be 1 eld at the chamber of commerce
tomorrow Wednesday evening at 8 oclock
As a matter of course it is not possible for this
1us
committee to discharge their many duties In a
single day but they are working energetically
and everything Is going on in perfect accord and
harmony The citizens they question are re
bpondiugwith almost unexpected liberality to
tho requests of the llnarce committee
commitee
ard tho results of j the llnanco
committees work so far indicates that
the celebration will be an unbounded and tat
pa alled success in the history of the entire
entr
intermountain countr Salt
ltermountai country Lake city has
facilities for making such a display cty her
resources and advantages as are possessed by
no other city west of Denver with the single
te slRle
exception of San Fiancisco While in the dis
charge of its duties the committee is dele
gated to request the various organizations in
vited to participate to send representatives to
dS f participate in the mooting of thegeneral com
onttteG tomorrcw evening at 8 oclock and in
accordance with that idea I hereby extend you
and t each of the organizations associated
with you an invitation to send representatlres
to the meeting tomorrow night at the chamber
of commerce Yours trulyFRED
FRED SIMON
Acting President Chamber of Commerce
There a a rumor afloat yesterday that
all the labor organizations of this city had
been invited to join the labor organizations
of Ogden in celebrating the Fourth in that
J 7 tity The idea seemed to be very popular
fn account of the laboring men of Ogden
coming t Sal Lake on several occasions
to fraternize with their brothers in Salt
Lake There is talk of a 50cent Sal
Ogden and return besides taking in the

THE MEtfriXQ LAST NIGhT
At a meeting of the committee on ar
rangements for the celebration of the
Fourth held at the chamber of commerce
last evening Messrs A D Cowles R G
bleater andlames Bovine were present in
answer t the invitation extended by Mr
Simon in his letter The committee ap
pointed by the chamber endeavored to impress
press upon the minds of the gentlemen rep
resenting the labor element that the slight
if any was unintentional and expressed a
desire that the laboring men generally
would cooperate with the general commit
J tee and do wnat they could t make the
1 celebration a success I was decided t
appoint one member of some labor organ
ization on each and every committee having
in charge the observance of the day The
chambers committee was informed that a
everything was now in the hands of the <
local unions it could not be said
what action would be taken It is thought
however that everything will be arranged
satisfactorily and that tho
satisfactriy laboring men
of this city will not be found wanting in
patriotism and every thing else which goes
to make Fourth of
a July celebration a
success
The Carpnaters union at it meeting
last night being informed of meeting
token place concluded t cooperate with
the chamber and elected Mr Devino t
represent them
It is hoped all other unions will do likewise

M YOUNG AND lISS AYIS
hey Arrive i 8 l Lake Their Migration
t Chicago
B B Young and Miss Bertha Bayliss
arr ived from Omaha by the Tuesday night 1
ow l train Both were abroad on the streets
yesterday but were so much engrossed
wit h rehearsals and incumbercd with
roll of music that it was almost impessible
to subject them t a brief interview Mr
Young however took time to accord TIC
HEUALU representative a few moments
conversation
Yes hessaid in response to the re
porters queries tWO arc all ready for the
lestival and mightily pleased that Salt
Lake has reached the stage where she can
support so notable a musical movement
Wo have just met MrStephens and gone
through our music and are t meet the
orchestra and Prof Rudclifle at the taber
nacle at 0 oclock Miss Bayliss is in excellent
lent voice and well pleased with her num
ber on the programme and for myself I
can say I never felt netter
Asked regarding his wife Madame Maz
zu cato Young composer of Sampson of
Om aha Mr Youngsaid MadameYoung
is now at work on another operetta with
Mr Nye author of the libretto of Samp
sou and I expect it will be finished about
the time I get back t Omaha The plot is
iery clever the idea being to materialize a
spirit that lived two or three hundred years
ago and bring it back t earth All sorts
of complications ensue and the denoue
ment is very amusing The rendition of
this operetta in which Miss Bayliss will
take part will form our farewell to
Omaha
Is it true then that you will all migrate
to Chicago
Yes lam to have charge of a chorus
choir in a church there Miss Bayliss re
ceived an offer from a church in Chicago
but as it would have necessitated her re
porting for duty Juno 1 she declined it
She will no doubt engage with another
church there
Who will succeed you as director of the
Omaha Apollo club
I shall probably succeed myself The
association is a very pleasant one and I
intend to pro t Omaha once week by the
night train and direct their meetings
The Apollo club will tender Mr Young a
banquet in Omaha next Wednesday night
so it will bo necessary for him t return to
Omaha immediately after the Festival
Mr Young and Miss Bayliss will r
hearse with the full chorus organ and
orchestra at the tabernacle this evening
No one but honorary members of the
admitted choral and press representatives will be
OTHER FESTIVAL KOTES

Mr Stephens says no body of children of
a similar size over trained together better
than the 1000 who will sing Saturday
There are ten hundred by actual count and
each one of the youthful songsters is work
ing like a beaver in an effort to make the
juvenile chorus outshine the adult They
will come with buds and flowers and

To the Editor of TilE HERALU
DEAl Siu I am suro that on reflection
you will consider your editorial of this
morning under trs caption of Census
Queries to be altogether untimely In
the first place Mr Porter had absolutely
nothing to do with formulating the plan of
the census ot of propounding any queries
pertaining thereto It was all from first
t last the work of a joint committee made
of tho two houses of
Congress and is a
part of the interior secretarys duty to
carry out Whatever my private opinion
may be of the value of the data which will
be gathered or of tho right of the govern
ment t inquire into private affairs 01 of
the subsequent value of the knowledge it I
will gain it is enough that the law makes
it incumbent on the enumerator to ask all
the questions in his schedule and more I
over it provides a severe penalty for a
refusal to answer any one of them It is
hardly in good formI submit for an able i
paper like Tan H KALD that goes into so
many homes in the very district where 1
these queries must be ppt to advise the
people even by inference to set their own
will and ppinions against an unequivocal
law of Congress
Your paper is not alone in the opinion it
has expressed and I should not now notice I I
it but in a few days thecnumerator tc will
be in the field and such opinions however
kindly meant is calculated to make the
people impatient when these queries are
propounded and subject them t a penalty
in which the newspaper cannotshare
A newspaper should be a beacon light to
guide its readers away from the sunken
reef aiqag the shores of every day affairs
but it should never allow itself to bo a
decoy Yours with respect

tion to his regular pay and his lireman wil 11
receive 5 wi
All men to receive these premiums shal 11
have made twenty days or more time in the

senger conductors will be looked upon as a
mark of incapacity and will result in thoi

a high order of average will be considered
a mark for promotion to higher positions
Freight conductors showing the greates
average of cars handled per train leas

alsoendeavor to learn the actual value of

nothing but strictly first class service to
the company will obtain these ends

The proposition of tho Utah Water company
t purchase the city waterworks was the prin
cipal subject of conversation in business dr
c ies yesterday All sorts of opinions were ex
pressed but the prevailing sentiment among
he citizens is in favorof tho city retaining con <
rol of the waterworks Tho fact that the com
any making the offer is composed of solid Salt
Lake men is u big point in its favor The mem
ber of the company say they are fully pre
pared to do all they proposed and appear to
b e hopeful favorable action being taken ultimately
mately when all the points of the proposition
have been considered The matter is now in
the hands of tho committee on waterworks and
it will doubtless be somo time before any acton
is taken upon it

Irrigation in Nevada
evada is waking up to the value of
irrigation The success of the irrigation
district of California in making the
waate lands fruitful has shown the value
of the system and indicated to some ex
tent tho means by which it nfhy be car
ried out
rc <
The meeting at Reno last Saturday
night showed the strong interest aroused
in the subject in Nevada It was ad
dressed by numbers of the leading men
in the state It resulted in this forma
tion of a strong organization of 150 rep
resentative men to further the work of
bringing water tcfland
There is no state in which irrigation is
moi 3 needed than in Nevada and there
is no state in which it would show more
important results The desert plains of
Nevada are bai a for no want of natural
fertility The soil is rich in the natural
elements of plant food It needs only
water and cultivation to make the land
as highly productive as any in the world
The task of bringing water to the
plajns of Nevada is a herculean one from
tho immense extent of the land thatre
quires irrigation The problem is made
still more difficult of solution by the
scarcity of sources of supply It is not
probable that enough water can bo got
to irrigate the whole of the desert or that
capital can be found for some time in
the future to convey it the long distances
necessary if the water supply can be
fouud But a great tract can undoubt
edly bo reclaimed with the water near at
hand and the money that can be raised
If the work is pushed with judgment
and energy Nevada will in another dec
ado make a showing as an agricultural
and mining state Her lands will un
doubtedly prove as great a source of
wealth as her mines and will give a
larger I and stable population It is en
couraging to see the citizens taking the
work in hand of themselves without
waiting for the slow movements of the
genural government Carson Nov Ap
