FEARFUL THREATS
PRECEDED MURDER
Witness Testifies Getis Father
Said Ill Drink Your
Hearts Blood
Evidence directly contradicting that
ot the several Greeks who have been
witnesses before Jude T D Lewis In
the John Kothlnftls murder trial was
brought out yesterday through Marshal
James W Grant of Binhnm Canon
who had been called early In the morn
Inr of Dec 23 last when Peter Gells was
killed Marshal Grant was a state wit
ness but his testimony proved favorable
to the defense
Grant testified that ho had been called
to the scene ot the murder at about 230
oclock In the morning He said GeUs
told him In a dying statement that he
had gone to the closet and when return
Ing had been set upon by KothlafUs who
jumped from behind the wash house and
opened fire upon him Gdtis fired five
shots while lying wounded according to
Getls statement to Grant
The Greeks who preceded Grant testi
fied that Getls told them Kothlaftis waS
In hiding behind the kitchen and that he
opened fire from there The wash house
Is on the other side of the cabin from the
kitchen Marshal Grant said there were
five empty shells In Getls revolver and
Getls had told him hI had fired all of
them at Kothlaftis With the evidence of i
Grant the state rested though there were
still several witnesses for the state un
called
Immediately Attorney Samuel A King
for the defense made the opening state
ment In which he said he would prove
that KothlafUs and Getls had been
friends all their lives that Gells went to
Blnham partly with money furnished by
Kothlaftls that Getis had started thc
trouble which grew so bitter that both
carried guns Getis father Attorney
Icing said had told his son to carry a
gun and kill Kothlnftls on sight He T said
many threats WEre made against Kota
laCtis all that he finally went to Gar
field to work He returned to Blnham
Gn the night of Dec 23 to get his clothes
which were In the Getls rabin and to get
some money which was held by Andrew
Rumellotis He got the money and then
went to the cabin for the clothes when
the attorney claimed Gltis opened fire
He said Getls shot Kothlaftls at least
once before the fire was returned Roth
lafUs was shot three times by Gotls and
was In the hospital for weeks Getts was
shot twice one of the wounds proving
fatal
Andrew Rumellols was the first wit
ness for the defense He said hE had
heard many threats against the life of
Kothlaftis and that one time old George
Getls father of Peter said something In
Ill
Greek which means In English
drink your hearts bleed Rumellols
said he had a draft for i50 and 70 In
cash belonging to Kothiaftis which he
turned over to him on the night of Dec
3 when he returned to Bingham from
Garfield
The defense has about ton Greek wit
resses most of whom will be examined
before the trial Is ready for argument
RECORDS DAILY Y QUAKE
Dr Fred L Pack Says Past Month
Has Been the Most Remarkable
for Years
Another earthquake shock in the series
which Dr Fred J Pack says Is the most
remarkable sequence of quakes ever
known In tbis section was registered on
the university seismograph at 11 oclock
yesterday morning Dr Pack after a
close examination at the record said he
felt quite sure this qualm had been clOse
at hand and perhaps of one minute dura
tion He was unable to detect any of its
other peculiarities
For the last month said Dr Pack
we have been having the most remark
able records of quakes ever known here
abouts Of course the seismograph was
put In only three years ago and before
Its Installation a quake U1tO this one
would come and go without anyone be
ing the wiser But until a month ago
there has never been a period when the
record of one shock after another was
made They have been almost daily oc
currences since then

A SALT LAKE BOOSTER I
Everything Is well with Salt Lake Is
the ward that comes from W S McCoy I
nick head of the banking firm of lcCor
j
nick Co and big owner of business
real estate and mining Interests A
cording to statements made by him In an I
interview yesterday Salt Lake Is des I
tined for all time to be the commercial I
banking Industrial and railroad center of I
the Intermountain country
The outlook for a greater Salt Lake
is certainly bright and encouraging said I
Mr lIkCornlck On every hand there
are evidences of the wonderful growth of
the city The encouraging feature con
nected with the vast amount of building
being done Is that no sooner Is a business I
and office structure an apartment house I
or a hotel erected than tenants are found
This Is proof conclusive of a lively In
crEase In population
Salt Lake Is admirably located and by
reason of that premier geographical lora
tion It Is evident that It must continue
to grow Tributary to It are rich sectiOns
of country These sections must look U
Salt Lake as the great distributing ren
ter and the center of the banking com
merclal and Industrial business or the intermountain
I
termonntaln country
The great Increase In bank clearings Is
of course indicative of the gcnrl pros
perity In business circles The volume of
business generally speaking is much
greater than ever before and thlrt Is also
an Indication ota featly Increased pop
ulation
No clouds arc looming up on the hank
Ing or commercial horizon threatening
financial or Industrial storm and there Is
nothing In the way to retard the progress
of this city
That Salt Lake does a greater volume
of banking business accordIng to the i
population than does any other city In
the country probably Is evidenced by
the many banks here and the large hank
clearings Already this city has about
double the number of banks to be found
In Denver and in Omaha cities of about
twice the population Consequently I
think there arc banks enough to take care
a
y
W S MCORNICK
or the business of the city for years to
compo
comeAn oplmtst < fing Is prevaltnt
among all classes of people It seems
The demand for money has been very
great for the past few morths due to the
vast amount of building being done and
to the cal made bv merchants who are
Increasing their business capacity With
the coming of the tax paying period there
Is little likelihood that there will be a
lkelhood
failing off In the demand for money for

North Pole of Candy Land Is
Found by Young Salt Laker
I thought I was going to get a stick
of candy and here thy hand over the
north pole said Oliver Jacobson a
student at the night school at the Y M
C A lat night First thing I know
Peary or Cook wilL bp coming along and
get me mixed up In their fight
The Jacobson lad Is classed as not much
bigger than a pint of cider despite his
16 years and during the day he works as
yers
cash boy at the Z C M J and at night
he attends the Y 1 C A night school
where hI Is enrolled In the seventh grade
Yednesday night he drew a problem In
arithmetic which stumped him and his
embarrassment made It still harder for
him to solve his example
Fitially the teacher A J Hagen prom
iced him a stick of andy If he woul
bring the correl solution to cias last
night Oliver appeared and shyly ad
vanced his paper with the problem cor
rEctly solved and then he received his
candy Instead of the ordinary stick
Immense candy cane
however It was an cndy
which looked more like a barbers pole
than candy and the la announced that
he was ready to defend his title against
all comers Cook and Peary not excepted
Oliver announced his determination to
Olver night school course so that he
would be qualified to enter business 1

eald the Tribune In reviewing a story
which sid appeared In the east several
weeks ago regarding a readjustment of
from New York and New
rates on sugar frm u T
Orleans to some or the cities 1 Infliana
and Ohio The opening statement how
Ohk opning
ever Is qualified by the office boy who
inserted the paragraph How deeply
Inerte raisers

this rate war may afect
ers and sugar refiners need not be point
ed out
The facts of the case are that a reduc
tion of i cents a hundred pouns In the
freight rate on sugar from New Orleans
to 100 cIties all In Indiana and Ohio ex
cept Detroit has been followed by a aim
liar reduction In the rate on sugar from
New York to these same cities
Very little Utah sugar goes east of the
Mississippi river where i can be bought
than In Salt Lake The
for a lower price Sal
and the railroads

work together so well that In any event
wel
if the change In s freight rates In the east
should affect the Utah market a like
