Operations of Negroes Result

Reports of robberies by lightfingered

strangers and sightseers of money and
The operations have been confessedly
ative and though members of the de
tective department have descriptions
and clues leading to those who are at
the head of the colored pickpocket

Rain Snow and Hail Play Hav
oc With All Transportation
Salt Lake received Its first touch
of winter high life yesterday at dusk
and one of the fiercest bltaards known
in year caught this l city In its twist
ing grip while the whole Intermoun
tain region was bathed in a shower of
hail and now delaying trains and
knocking street car schedules into
Shortly before 8 oclock the wind
veered from the east to the northeast
gathered in velocity and swooped down
upon Salt Lake with a blinding storm I
of hail and frozen snow
Just at the time when most good
people begin to think of home and sup
per this icy visitation was by no means
welcome Street cars became late and
when they did plough through the
snow they were packed to the guards
The sleet and frozen snow made go
ing bad and later when the wind be
came more docile the hail changed to
soft flakes that spread a mantle over
the earth some inches thick in a very
short space of time
In conseqaencfi whereof the weather
man who predicted rain or snow
got bothand one of them with a ven
The Denver Rio Grande reported
very little tardiness of trains al
though the storm swirled along the
line to the east for more than 100
The Oregon Short Line trains ex
perienced little delay on account of the
storm although the connections to the
north were late owing to belated trains
on the Butte line and the O R = N
East on the Union Pacific and west
on the Southern Pacific the storm cov
ered the tracks but trains operated
with slight delay
The local telephone companies re
port trivial line troubles here and
there but nothing out of the ordi
nary while the power circuits of the
Utah Light A Railway company were
barely affected
Street Cars Delayed
The only serious effect of the storm
was the impediment of street car traf
fic The sweepers were put out but
were no match for the downfall and
the cars fell behind time
Outside of that unpleasantness and
a falling off in attendance at the
theatres last night the combination
of hail frozen snow light snow and
wind didnt accomplish much of its
f r res worn purpose after all The
storm abated about S oclock and the
old resident began omparlng it with
the blizzard of 72 much to t > y dis
credit of this latter invasion
An hour later the second precipita
tion started and it snowed intermit
tently during the night until the ag I
gregate precipitation reached several
Inches The street car company had
a force of men at work all night clear
ing the tracks and keeping the switches
A H Thiessen weather man pleased
with the result of his prognostication
for Thursday has now devised a com
bination for Friday which means more
snow followed by much cold Pe
culiarly enough he must have left
the weather office early yesterday for
he reports that tbire was merely a
trace of precipitation up to 6 oclock
last night Those who were out on
Main street half an hour before that
will testify that the trace was almighty
Weather Forecaster Thiessen is still
of the opinion that more snow Is due
His forecast until 6 p m today says
that the northwest low pressure area
will continue to move to the east and
will cause snow in this vicinity and
colder weather today
The temperature report of Wednes
day shows the normal to have been
34 while the mean was St Only a
trace of precipitation is reported for
Salt Lake yesterday

Speaking of boosters it occurs to many
people that there are several different i
classes with many different styles Some
people boost by investments others boost
by exploitation of one product or another I
again some people promulgate glowing
preachments in printand countless others i
boost in their one particular way with I
one ultimate end in view
Yet the cause of Salt Lake and Utah
has never found a more ardent champion
than Joseph U Eldredge Jr assayer in
charge of the United States assay office
in Salt Lake He may not have heralded
himself from the housetops as a booster
and perhaps his observuilons on Salt
Lake have not been thunderous intona
tions that reverberated throughout the
land but he boosts in an effectual way
among effective people
I believe in Salt Lake said Mr
Eldredge and I believe in Utah I dont
think that the story of the city or the
state has been half told to the nation
Tire narrative has hardly been started
And I dont mean to reflect upon the
unceasing energy of those who have been
spreading the gospel of Utah either I
merely wish to emphasize the fact that
the present is such a marvelous trans
formation of the past and that the fu
ture holds so much of brimming prom
ise that not even we who have liven
through the growth and development can
realize the magnitude of it
1 wish to call attention to one fact
that has been overlooked in tho recent
exploitation of Utah resources I was
talking to a prominent dry farmer who
told me that a million dollars worth uf
wheat had been grown on dry farms of
Utah during the past season Consider i
ing the infancy of the dry farm move
ment in this state and the wide areas
that are yet untouched or untilled I think
dry farming will produce a great por
tion of the states wealth within the next
few years Back of all our progress of
course is the wealth of resources Every
time I have discussed Utah as a coming
state with men from the east or west
the first question they ask is
What have you got to back you
One can look past the big buildings
in Salt Lake the new railroads and the 1
expansion of the old the growth in popu
lation and the increased prosperity to the
cause of It all For if there were not
some fundamental reason for the growth i
there would be no growth No one will
dispute that When you show an east
ern man that irrigation and dry farming
are being pushed to the limit and find
ing ready investors when you point to
the output of mines the resources that
are being developed and the reserves still
in the hills untouchedyou make an ar
gument for the state that sticks And
when you show that Salt Lake is the
natural center for a tremendous territory

which ftis tin > i ity t nnd I draws from it

mountain country you need go no farther
to find < an excuse for the rafffil develop
ment and growth of this city

Grand River Valley Wants
Lower Charge for Coal Haul
to Salt Lake
Grand Junction Colo Dec tAU large
producing mines in Grand River valley
will participate in a suit to compel the
Denver Rio Grande railroad to grant
coal companies the name ton rate to
Salt Lake City that the Rio Grande gives
the Sunnyside mines in Utah according
to a statement made today by George
Smith of the P V mine
Present rates on coal from the Sunny
side mines to Salt Lake are approximately
175 a ton for lump coal but this rate
is only nominal inasmuch as the Utah
Fuel company is converting all of the
product of the Sunnyside mines into coke
which is marketed in Utah Nevada
Idaho and Montana The coal rate from
till of the mines in Carbon county varies
only a few cents from Castle Gate which
is about 110 miles away to Sunnyside
which is nearly 150 miles from Salt Lake
This rate is regarded as exorbitant from
every point of view and has been the
subject of ineffective protests from many
During the last session of the legisla
ture when some action towards lower
coal rates was asked the railroad rep
resentatives urged that Inasmuch as
Utah could not furnish coal enough for
home consumption the lowering of coal
rates would shut Wyoming coal out of
the local market and cause a famine
About three months later the Union Pa
cific and Oregon Short Line advanced
the rate on coal from Rock Springs
Wyo to Salt Lake 25 cents a ton using
as their argument the fact that Utah
was able to furnish all the coal the state
needed and there was no need for a low
rate from Wyoming
Years ago the rate on coal from the
Carbon county mines to Salt Lake and
Ogden was 73 cents a ton and during
this time an enormous tonnage was
handled and the old Rio Grande Western
paid the only dividend on its common
stock which has been paid since the or
ganizatlo 1 of the road
It Is reported on good authority that
the Gould and Harriman officials held
a conference over coal rates recently and
the question of reducing rates to Sail
Lake was discussed at length The of
ficials of the Union Pacific and Oregon
Short line however insisted that It Ltah
wanted reasonable rates the citizens of
the state must force them through the
interstate commerce commission
Farmers Killing Hogs for City JEar
ket Must BlUe CareaMes for
Continued telephone requests to visit

the positive statement from J W Tre
man city veterinarian yesterday that
he would not inspect a single hog at
a meat market The veterinarian said I
farmer had the right to kill hogs I
themselves but that they would have
to take the carcasses to one of the
slaughter houses to be examined and
passed upon by one of the city meat
inspectors before placed on sale in
the city The inspection will cost noth
ing All of this he said must be
done at the slaughter houses where
city inspectors are working
Dr Treman also issued positive or
ders that the farmer must leave heart
liver lungs head and tongue on the
hog held by natural attachments or
the whole carcass will be kept off the
local market

Breaking Crowds
If the opening at 630 oclock yesterday
afternoon of the Christmas basar in the I
basenxmt of St Marks cathedral under
the auspices of the Ladies Guild is any
indication of success for today then the
ladies in charge of the affair will reckon
up the receipts of the baxar tonight hap
py in the knowledge that they have done
Crowds started to pour into the base
ment of the cathedral yesterday afternoon
about 2 oclock bJt it was not until about
5 oclock that those in charge began to
experience any difficulty in moving
around Although about IS ladies wer
working their hardest to take care of the
enormous crowds that appeared to par
take of the turkey supper the jam for a
few hours was almost too much for them
About threefourths of all the available
space in the basement was partitioned off
for the supper tables screens and potted
palms and plants being placed around
them The tables were tastefully deco
rated in English ivy and ferns and made
a most beautiful appearance even before
they were loaded to their utmost capacity
with turkey and cranberry sauce veget
ables and all kinds of good things to eat
No sooner had Mrs E M Allison jr in
charge of the dinner given the signtN
for the admission of the first batch of
people than a grand rush took place
Mrs Allison snatching a few minutes
between times said last night that more
than GOO tickets had been sold before the
opening Besides the turkeys donated
by poultry firms and others to the affair
300 pounds were purchased by the Ladies
Probably the greatest attraction after
the turkey dinner was the fancy work I
