The house succeeded yesterday in
completing the land bill in committee
of the whole and reported it for third
r > reading and final passage The depar
i tures from the committee bill were not
of a radical nature Such amendments
a were adopted are given in the de
fr tailed account of the proceedings
One proposed amendment which was
I lost but which was of a very import
t ant nature was that of Mr Morrison
r I was Intended to provide against the
possibility of the state being swindled
If by land containing coal or mineral
from Tjing classified as farming land
j < jnd sold as such when i classified
L a mineral land the state would
receive far greater benefit The
theory upon which it was introduced
I f was that that locators or appraisers
knowing a piece of land suitable for
t forming purposes on the surface car
rying mineral underneath might clas
i sify it a farming land have a friend
or relative become the purchaser and
l t thus secure the deposit of mineral at
a low figure The amndment Mr
Morrison proposes to bring to the at
tention cf the senate when the bill
leaves the house
c Mr Critchlovv submitted 3 a separ
ate bill his proposed amendment

ing the disposition of mineral lands
The only matters of importance to
engage the attention of the house were
the meat inspection bill and the bill
for free public libraries The former
came up on a motion to reconsider the
vote by which i had been previously
r recommitted It proved the subject for
the exchange of some rather sharp
personalities between various members
particularly Mr Monson and Mr
I The library bill occupied the last
hour of the session and met with the
same opposition which characterized
i the consideration when the bill a up

justifiable homicide bill came up un

believed the concurring with the senate
would repeal every law looking toward
the prevention of the sale of diseased
met He believed that with no legisla
tion or this character lumpyjawed
cattle could be killed and brought to the
city and sold as could any other kind
of to th diseased judiciary meat He moved to commit
Dr Condon took a shot at Mr Critchlow
by remakIng that he was convinced
since the last gentleman had spoken that
lumpyjaw was not conned to cattle
Ho was in favor or concurring
Mr Gushing was satislied such a law
was needed and was equally sure every
other resident of a city would think so
I they knew the kind of meat they were
eating daily Formerly before the law of
HSii was enacted the meat that came
I to the city was steer meat now i was
the meat of pregnant cows made so to
make them weigh and a cheaply a
possible The law was inadequate and
should be made as stringent a possible
Mr Thorn thought that if the cities
had steer meat before the 1S94 law and
now had impure cow meat he thought It
a gOOd plan to repeal the law Continu
ing he said he had understood the law of
IbUl had been rushed through in the last
moments of the session In the interest of
a business tew people controling the slaughtering
Mr ebeker of Rich a a member of
the legislature which had passed the law
j refuted the statement that the bill had
been railroaded through or that It was
in the interest of any set of individuals
The law had favored the packing houses
I which had been established since its en
actment and I had been a great benefit
I to the state That it had been violated
was no lault of the law Such a law was
needed by cities and he would favor see
Ing i made more stringent The motion
lost on division I
Some further discussion followed when
Mr Harris moved the previous question
which carried and Mr Nyes amendment I
I of the motion which had in the mean
time been made which was that the I

Mr Cushing at this point called up the

Air Morrison presented the following

All deeds and all certificates of sale
shall reserve to the state all minerals of

ensue thereform grant the right to

pect ana mine the minerals coal and
hydrocarbons upon such lands under
such terms and conditions a may be pro

Considerable debate followed the
COlslderble debte folowed sense
of which appeared to b that the amend
ment should be Incorporated in Mr
Critchlows bill covering mineral lands
I which is to be introduced The motion to
I adopt was then lost
Mr Cushing moved to amend by reduc
ing the time for which grazing land
shall be leased from ten years as re
ported by the committee to live

Mr Nebeker of Rich didnt like the
idea of the chairman of the land commit
tee moving such a radical departure
from the committee bill for two reasons
rtrst he had his
frst against own Inclination
in many Instances stayed by the com
mittee bill a they had all agreed to
and second the very subject now pro
posed had been considered at great
length Mr Nebeker was very much sur
prised at Mr Cushing and said so rather
teelingly his motion whereupon Mr Cushing Withdrew
Mr Howards motion prevailed which
I directed the striking put of section 21 in
relation to timber lands the words which
I prente persons from removing tim
I ber for domestic purposes from state
lands for their

line lands wherever the words appear I
I it being the intention to provide for them
in the mineral land bill The motion pre
I vailed
Mr Thompson of Sanpete moved to
amend section 19 by changing the pro
vision giving the preference right of pur I
I chase of school lands to settlers vho re
I motion sided thereon carrying January I 1S94 t Rig the I I
I Mr Morrison moved to rise and report
I the bill favorably Mr Cazier objected
as he thought another sitting ought to
be had to perfect the bill He was op
I posed to the motion which had been car
ried eliminating saline lands from the
operation of the bill
j 11 Critchlow said he was not in ac
cord with all of the provisions of the bill
I and he did not believe any other member
was but i would be that way If the
I consideration continued indefinitely He
moved to amend the motion to rise and
I report favorably by excluding section 18
the one involved in Mr Cazlers objection
I from the report
Mr Thompson of Sanpete moved to in
I clude section 20 in the exception The mo
I tion lost and the motion to rise a
amended by Mr Critchlow was carried
The house then adopted the report of tVie
committee of the whole
A communication from City Recorder
D S Emery transmitted a resolution
adopted by the city council asking that
an appropriation b made for defraying
the expenses of an exposition to be held
in Salt Lake in 1897 in celebration of

bered a having been recommitted some
days ago under stress of opposition to
Its pasage I had been somewhat re
modeled before being returned to the
house which fact was acknowledged by
its opponents who nevertheless took a
determined stand against its enactment
The leaders of the opposition a in the
previous case were Messrs Smoot Ste
vens and Harris who took the same
stand a before that while the bill was
a meritorious measure the people were
not in a condition to have their taxes
increased The debate lasted till the hour
for adjournment being participated in by
a great many gentlemen on either side
of the question Mr Nye made an im
passioned and eloauent argument In Its

Frye Rushes to the Defense of
5 Huntington
Huntington Gives 1 New Definition
of a Lobby Admits That He Has
Spent Two Millions in Paying
For Explaining Legislation and
Protecting His Interests
WASHINGTON March Senator Mor
gan today resumed the questioning of C P
Huntington in the Pacilic railroad Inquiry
by the senate committee on Pacilic rail
roads The first question was directed to
ascertaining whether the Union Pacific
road had lost money In consequence of the
diversion or the tralllc from the Central
Paclnc to that of the Southern Pacifls
Huntington replied that i had not a it
was a fact that more than 50 per cent of
the transcontinental business over all the
rail routes was carried over the Central
Pacific He said this matter was arrang
ed by an understanding as to the rates
and distribution of business among all the
transcontinental lines He said this was
rot a pool but a mere agreement This
statement had the effect of diverting the
inquiry into the system of pooling and
division of business but Huntington pro
f iessed not to be familiar with the details
Jtie said such agreements had been in
effect twentylive years
I Air Huntington asserted that the aver
age local rates in California were as low
as in any other part of the world not
withstanding the expense of operating the
I roads was proportionately much greater
Mr Huntington said he never had hoard
that freights intended for points short of
I San Francisco had been carried on to
San Francisco thus compelling shippers
to pay the treight back to the local points
There had been complaints however of
higher rates for a short haul than for a
long haul but this was unavoidable when
the end of the long haul was at tide
water bringing the road into competition
with tie water tralnc He admitted that
when the Central Pacific started first
there was some complaint among shippers
I along the line of the road from the east
that they were compelled to pay rates
I equal to what they would be if their
goods were shipped to San Francisco and
I then back and they demanded if such
rates should be charged the roads should
I carry the freight twice Senator Mor
gan asked if the California railroad com
mission had taken cognizance of this dis
crimination in favor of the long haul
and Mr Huntington replied that the com
mission had been elected on a pledge to
cut rates 25 per cent but the question ha
I been settled taken there Into the courts and would be
Senator MorganYou contest then me
right of California to exercise this au I
I thority
Mr Huntington deny the authority of
the state of California or anybody else I
I to take my property without giving me
due consideration 1 said that even con
I i gress has not the right to forfeit my
property and 1 dont believe i will
j I Senator Morgan entered into a long
I examination of Mr Huntington a to the
i rates on fruit and the distribution of the
I business between the two companies with
especial reference to the shipments
the Mississippi valley markets
Mr Huntington said the greater part of
the fruit snipped to these states from Cal
Ifornia was sent over the Southern Pacific
I and the Central Pacilic In preference to
sending entirely over the Southern Pacifls
as might be done but did not know why
this was done He could not explain why
the Southern Pacific should receive 5
per cent of the amount paid unless I was
because the Southern Pacific ha the ex I
pense of gathering and handling the
fruit Fruit shipments were expensive be
cause of the necessity of carrying large
quantities of Ice The green fruit trans
portatlon did not cut any great figure in
I the railroad business he declared In
reply to questions a to his disposal of
stock in the Southern Pacific the Ken
tucky corporation Mr Huntington said
he had never sold any of I at any price
Speaking or the land grant of the Cen
tral Pacific Mr Huntington said it
amounted to about JOO000 < acres but that
most or It was in western Utah and Ne
vada and was of but little value He
said the company had so far realized less
than 58000000 on the land grant
He said that the companies in which he
was interested had received from the gov
ernment In grants about 10000000 acres in
I land
landWhen Senator Morgan asked what had
been done with the proceeds of the land
sold ilr Huntlngtmi said it had been I
used In burning up the road
t tb f et
I What olco I were Wf to flo With I he
t asked ncC dedIhe building of the
Central Pacilic road was the dearest piece
of railroad work ever done In America
An Interesting episode occurred at this
Juncture Senator Morgan was pressing
an inquiry a to what Mr Huntington
thought of the Pattison report and asked
him if in saying the report was incorrect
he meant to impeach the character of the
members of the commission Senator
ire protested against the question say
Ing as he did not think I a fair ques
ton dont care what you think i is or
what Mr Huntington thinks I am trying
to get at replied Mr Morgan
i dont want Senator Morgan to say
that said Mr Frye
The senator has no right to plunge
into the midst of a question by me addressed
dressed to the witness I dont regard
that as polite treatment
1 contend said Mr Frye that the
senator has no right to examine the wit
ness a to whether he impeaches the
character of any man
Senator Gear who was presiding said
of the committee hereon
every member commitee was
on an equal rooting and every member
must b treated with equal propriety and
Mr Morgan said that If the chairman
meant to say that he had no right to put
the question he would appeal to the
The incident dropped with that and
tho examination went on In reply to
questions Mr Huntington said he had
never kept a lobby In Washington or else
where In the usual acceptance of that
term to promote the Interest of his road
but that he had always had trusted men
lawyers and others to explain legislation
and protect his Interests and that the
outulay from the < on this account in
the national and state capitals had
amounted to about i000000
Mr Morgan asked i Mr Huntington
was pursuing that plan to procure the
legislation which he was now seeking to
He replied that he was doing most of
the work now himself Nevertheless there
were still some expenses He said ho I
had always employed men In this work
whom he could trust
I Is a case said Senator Morgan
or trust and say nothing case In
which faith removes mountains
Mr Morgan examined Mr Huntington
at length as to contracts with shippers
for rebates and other purposes looking to
discrimination but he said he knew noth
ing about the details of these matters
He said however that tho rebate system
was legitimate I
At 245 oclock Mr Morgan announced
he had concluded his examination of Mr I
Huntington and the committee ad
journed until next Friday In closing lIr a
Huntington mado a statement giving in
concise form the facts which his exam
ination had developed In regard to the
cost of building the road the resources
upon which the work was done and the

that the principal value of the Oakland

be brought from Australia and England
how i was necessary to bring machin

of procuring water and of protecting the

these facts he thought anyone had a
right to be able to see that the company
never would have been able to accom
plish its work without good credit and
the exercise of the most rigid economy

The Dismissed Police Officers Re
tired Yesterday Afternoon
But i is a Plain Violation of the
La r Tlie Case of Detective Paul
Honrs of the Three Reliefs
In its action of reducing the police
force in accordance with the retrench
ment ordinance passed b the city
council the board of fire and police
commissioners seems to have overlook
ed a point that may have the effect of
restoring the dismissed desk sergeant
The act of compelling the desk ser
geants to work twelve hours a day is
clearly a violation of the provision of
the state constitution Article 16 sec
tion 6 reads
Eight hours shall constitute a days
work on all works or undertakings car
ried on or aided by the state county or
municipal governments
In dropping one desk sergeant the
remaining two will have to perform
twelve hours work each day This
they cannot ce compelled to do without
extra pay in which instance nothing
would be gained as i is claimed that
even by working that may hours dur
I ing each day ithey could at the end of
the year recover for an additional six
months salary the difference in the
extra time
The point was considerably discussed
among interested parties yester
day and the general opinion
seemed to oe that should the
constitution be sustained Mr Mackin
tosh Is entitled to reinstatement While
that gentleman was not seen an attorney
expressed himself as follows
I is my opinion that the discharged
desk sergeant Is entitled to be rein
stated The ordinance passed by the
city council was with the sole object of
I retrenchment Under the constitution no
one employed by the city can be made
to work more than eight hours without
I extra p In this instance it will b
I necessary to appoint a new desk sergeant
and a no member of the force can be
I discharged without cause I cannot see
I the justice of the commissions act
I know of course that many of the
I city officials and their clerks work to
exceed the constitutional limitation of
I time each day but that is not compul
sory and would hardly be a parallel case
I In my estimation the commission cannot I
I discharge at will and the city councrflln
passing the retrenchment ordinance was
clearly in the wrong when it provided
for only two desk sergeants which as
everyone knows would require the men to
work four hours overtime for which they
ca recover from the city
Detective Pauls case is somewhat simi
lar his contentions being that inasmuch
as the ordinance was for the purpose of
retrenchment the commission could not
cut off one of the detectives for the
reason that two are alleged to be neces
sary When ha stepped out of the depart
ment yesterday Patrolman Raleigh was at
once detailed to take Pauls place This
is what the latter objects to and
a pre
viously announced he seems to be sus
tained by several of the councilman I
was rumored yesterday that Mr Paul
would not obey the decree uisharping
him but this was without foundation
He said last night that he was willing
to take his medicine with the rest of the
dismissed men but protested against the
action for the reason that a man was I
immediately assigned to the place va i
While the above was common talk
around municipal circles there were of
course many who took a different view
of the question I is not unlikely that
the board will have its attention drawn
to tho night question at the meeting tomorrow
The changes which the reduction of the
force necessitated were all made yes
terday and everything was apparently I
going on as usual The morning relief

ilarly afflicted I send this testimonial
to the press I have been afflicted with
nasal catarrh ever since I was about 7
years old to such a extent that I have
not been able to breath through my i
nose and of late years it ha extended
to my ears and in fact all through my
head so that I could not sleep at night
and upon arising in the morning instead
of being refreshed I felt worse than
when I went to bed and I coughed and
hawked continually in fact my life was
a misery to me
About ten months ago I wrote to Dr

General Forrests Rejnnrknl > le Wnr
Twentyseven horses were shot under
Lieutenant General N B Forrest who
earned the sobriquet of The Wizard
of the Saddle during the war and
Lieutenant General Richard Taylor
said of him I doubt 1C any command
er since the days of LionHearted
Richard has killed so many of the ene
my Forrests aphorisms are such as
one would expect from such a man
War mejjis fighting and fighting
means killing he once said On an
other occasion he declared The way
to whip em is to get there first with
the most men Once when discussing j
with a graduate of West Point the I
question of how to fight cavalry to
greatest advantage he remarked I
would give more for fifteen minutes off I
bulge than for three days of tactics
The Salt Lake Tribune is known all
over the west as one of the ablest and
most persistent advocates of bimetal
lism in the country Its articles are
read by political friends and foes alike
with equal pleasure It has given a
prodigious amount of time and labor
to a most exhaustive discussion of all
phases of the financial question and
its effects upon the moral and financial
condition of the people There Is no
denying the fact that it has occupied
the position of chief educator of the
people within a radius of many hun
dreds of miles in extent upon the sub
ject of silver as money and its relation
to the people Thousands irt Utah
Idaho Wyoming Montana and Nevada
read its silver articles and accord it
the praise justly its due There is no
doubt that the knowledge thus dis
seminated has done a great deal of
good but not near the good It might
have done if the whole thing were not
marred by an inconsistency so glaring
as to challenge its sincerity in all this
multiplicity of declaration
The Tribune is as well aware as any
one can be that the evils which afflict
ed the country for twentyfive years
are contemporaneous with the rule of
the Republican party It knows that if
any one of the political parties are
responsible for the destruction of our j I
silver money it was the Republican I
party It knows that of all the parties
the Republican party has been the i
most persistent in its determination to i
keep silver down It knows it has been I
the arch enemy of silver and stands I
today near unanimous in its advocacy
of the single gold standard And while
the Tribune has for years declared
that the primary cause of our national
troubles were in the destruction of
half of our money It continues to of j
fer aid and comfort and to contribute I
to the growth and strength of that very
party whose continued life strength
and success means the permanent and
unresurrected death of silver and in
consequence according to Its oft re
peated story the continued woe of the
people Idaho Falls Times
Shores told me he was permanently cured
anti I watched the boy closely expecting
each day that the trouble would return
That was two years ago and the troubl
ha not returned in the slightest degree
since and I now firmly believe he is perma
nently cured and ot course I am vtry
grateful t Doctor Shores and hIs fa

to find something or somebody that would
help him when Doctor Shores told me that
he could absolutely cure him it seemed t j
me that he was exaggerating and I
nearly lost the chance for I was o the
point of withdrawing when something
seemed to compel me to let Doctor

I used the treatment he gave and did

Novelties in Paper Silk and Parch
ment Now on the Market
The pretty paper fan beloved by the
summer girl for Its cheapness and beau
ty Is only now making its appearance on
the spring market And behold Conser
vative Japan nas yielded to the dictate
or French fashions and during the heated
term of 06 we will catch our breezes with
tiny trifles of empire design
Finest silk gauze and paper have been
employed in their construction and the
workmanship of the delicately fnrvf i
sticks has been done bv skilled fingers
The slender splints are most of them lsa l
than hair an inch in width with the
mounted material no wider when foiled
They average from six to about mms
Inches in length
One odd fact concerning these cheap
fans Is that the bamboo pieces are now
decorated with painted designs Some
are embellished with llgures correspond
ing to those on the paper and the effect
Is unique The only cords about them are
or silk with tassels knotted to the clasps
The paper covering of some spfoimpns
is graduated from three inches on the
side to six on the opposite That of others
Is only about four inches deep across
These are not apt to prove useful in agi
tating the air but they are undoubtedly
pretty Those made with two slips of
paper revealing the sticks between are
ol great variety
1 came across a little gem Its fltiely
carved frame was mounted with a narrow
strip of thin white silk handpainted with
lilies or the valley The artist ha1 ex
tended his work to the sticks where
green leaves and the same dainty flower
added the finishing touch to tne perfect
Another and strikingly pretty one
showed an outside frame of bone and i he
silk painted with Japanese figures in min
iature style
There are beauties with gilded and sli
vered sticks and a tracery of embossed
silver on the silk The variety of de
signs should please the most fastidious
An oval sliaped fan Is the newest de
sign for decorative purposes Both sides
are closely covered with small paper flow
ers of one color All shades are shown m
this style
In one of the largest jewelry houses a
richlygowned woman stood selecting a
fan from those spread before her
This madam remarked the clerk
holding up a fan for inspection Is not
quite small enough to own the latest
touch of fashion but It is very hand
So it was The center of gauze hand
painted with a Cupid bearing garlands of
roses gradually merged into a surround
ing or real lace The sticks were mother
orpearl each decorated with a golden
Now this he continued Is the very
newest thing and a tiny affair was lifted
for a closer view It was quite small
The motherorpearl pieces richly em
bossed with gold were mounted with two
narrow strips or white silk about two
Inches apart which were adorned with
I think I prefer these and the put
chaser turned to the antique fans
Some had sticks ol exquisitely carved
Ivory while others were of motherof
pearl decorated with gold The ends of
the pivots of a few were finished with
Jewels They were all mounted with
parchment handsomely palate with pret
ty rural scenes and groups of figures in
the stylo of watnau
