Rumors are current to the effect that
work will be commenced earl next year
on a new terminal and depot in this city
for the Salt Lake Ogden railroad pop
ularly known as the Bamhergor line
These lmproements it is said are to be
made on Postoftn place almost direct

There are several 1 circumstances which I
gi Vi rise to the bullet that there is much
initiation foi the rumor Chief among
hese is the fact that recentl an ottn
WII made for the Bambergct property I
U > cribed and the reply was made that
11 i vas not for sale it any price It seems
ident from this that the Bamberger in
tt r ivsts have not given up the idea of ion
aructing a terminal on that property
Chi franchise still urns for a long term
of years and is considered a most vain
able concession in view of the many im
rtivements that have been made in that
section of the city within the past three
Another fact which gives rise to the be
lid that the right of franchise will soon
le exercised is that no improvements have
bet > n made on the terminal facilities on
Third Went and South Temple streets
since the line has been in operation Og
den has a good terminal station and yard
acilities at Thirtyfirst street and Wash

Building Trades Council Takes
Issue With Real Estate
Denying that there is a scarcity of
skilled labor in Salt Lake and taking
issue with the Salt Lake Real Estate as
sociation the Building Trades Council
through its press committee has given
out a statement to the public signed by
J E Munsey H E Osborne and Parley
Burt The statement follows
Some weeks ago the Salt Lake Real
Estate association causod articles to be
published in the daily papers stating that
building operations were seriously ham
pered by the scarcity of labor in all the
building branches The matter was taken
up with the several local unions through
the Building Trades Council of Salt Lake
and it was unanimously shown that each
and every one of those unions engag < d
in the building trades had members idle
at the time An average of IS or 20 per
cent of their membership were idle and
looking for work And an article was
published in the papers at that time by
the press committee of the Building
Trades Council stating the facts
At the present time the Real Estate
association is advertising1 in Colliers
Weekly the Saturday Evening Post and
i a London weekly setting forth the im
aginary munificent wages paid to labor
ers of every class and asking them to
come to Salt Lake and as we positively
know misrepresenting the labor situa
tion here In order to induce them to do
so The tact is and can easily be proven
that building operations are retarded by
lack of material and at the present time
by the Inclemency of the weather and
not by any scarcity of skilled labor
Anc her significant fact is that a large
percentage of the membership of the
building trades unions of Salt Lake are
taxpayers men of families owning their
own homes and just as much interested
in the growth and prosperity of the city
us the Real Estate association
A committee from the Building Trades
Council would be pleased to meet a like
committee from the Real Estate asso
elation at any time and show the truth
of the above statements

Scarlet Fever Will Not I
Stop Visit of Old Santa
GOOD old St Nicholas has been called on to change his plans for provid
ing a good time for the little orphans in the State street home on Christ
mas day on account of the appearance of a case of scarlet fever In the home
yesterday It is only a change though and the little motherless children
will have a real Christina and only t he one little girl who has been isolated
from the rest of the children will miss the good time This child will pus
her Christmas day In a secluded room and the day will be made as pleasant as
possible for her by an attendant She will get her share of the good things
to be distributedbut the candy and su ch will be saved for her until the doctor
says she may have them
Instead of the plans outlined wher eby the little ones were to have enter
tainments open to the public the children will be kept to themselves This
however will not interfere with the plans of the Independent Order of Good
Fellows Their packages of Christmas cheer may be sent either to Mrs Mau
rice M Johnson 621 East Second South street or to Mrs Warren Benjamin
7S East Sixth South street Mrs Johnson and Mrs Benjamin will see that
the good things are delivered at the orphanage and special arrangement will
be made to see that Christmas is aa happy a day as possible for the little ones
The case of scarlet fever which de veloped yesterday is a light one and it
was isolated immediately BO it is believed there is little danger of a spread
Df the disease
There have been many responses to the touching appeal for the children of
the orphanage and plans had been m ade by several men and women of Salt
Lake to provide gifts for from one to three of the children These charitably
lispooed persons may now send their b oxes of good things to the represents
tiv of the orphanage and the attenda rite will attend to their distribution
Pupils of the City Schools
Give Christmas Cheer to Poor
A r II 1 xpresaion of the Christmas spirit
vi Pi i s en in all of the city schools this
r I n liing when children from thousands
if li nies in Salt Lake will take shoes
S1 i i k HV and all sorts of wearing ap
I d rr i the other children of the city
1 1 j tunatr than they in the matter
y f fu ter clothing
Hi giving of clothing for the poor
< i tluren of the tit > came as a request
t tim teachers of some of the schools
sr i i the children and from them was re
i 01 i 11 i Sup I intendent D H Christen
st i The idea wa at once taken up and
l mals in each of the schools were
toid that them evidences of the Christ
mas pint would he most acceptable As
a it cult of the little talk by teachers in
th class rooms hundred of children will
take clothing and provisions to the schools
this morning to be collected and turned
over to the Salvation Army officials to
be placed in homes where needed
It is the giving of articles which have
been practically cast aside by the chil
dren said Superintendent Christensen
last night It will not be missed by those
giving the clothing but it will mean much
to the children who have not sufficient
clothing There will be no giving of
money Many times we have noticed chil
dren in the schools who have been forced
to quit school because they did not have
sufficient clothing or shoes and in call
ing the matter to the attention of the
Salvation Army or some other charity
they have been provided for and not de
prived of a schooling through financial
need on the part of the parents We feel
that we can pay them back in this than
ner and also make the Christmas pleasant
for many children
The exercises in the public school
which will be given this afternoon are
more complete this year than ever be
fore and the giving of old clothing by
the children in the name of charity will
furnish one of the most unique features
of the day
Silver King Consolidated Is Su
ing Silver King Coalition
Mines Company I
EvIdences of the theft of 5500000 worth
of ore from the Silver King Consolidated
Mining company property at Park City
has been discovered by the surveys re
cently completed by this company ac
cording to an amendment to the complaint
filed by the Silver King Consolidated
against the Silver King Coalition Mines
The original
company about 18 ago
inal complaint chaged the coalition com
pany with the theft of upwards of 1000
000 worth of ore but the amended com
plaint filed in the federal court which
is being argued thin week states that
prior to June 19 1907 the coalition com
pany had stolen more than 15000000 worth
of ore and since that date more than
500000 has been taken illegally and with
fraudulent intent from the Silver King
Consolidated property
When the original action was filed the
consolidated company had no means of
determining how much ore had been tak
en from its property and it was only re
cently that the complainants in the case
had been able to make a survey
Accused of Poaching
This survey shown that after extract
ing the ore the coalition company had
caved in the works and left it in such
condition that the work of investigation
was extremely difficult No cement
bulkheads were found however as was
the case in another investigation of the
coalition companys poaching
The coalition company has set up in its
defense that the present company was
not responsible for the acts of Its pred
ecessors hut the court has ruled that
inasmuch as the management of the pres
ent coalition company had full knowledge
of the workings of the former company
the coalition company is to be held re
sponsible in this case
The Silver King Coalition company de
femiai has procured an extension of
time until February 1
Solon Spiro is president of the Silver
King Consolidated company which is

Holiday Number of The Theatre Mag
azine More Than Ordinarily
Current contributions to art and litera
ture will have to travel an unusual pace
to equal the Christmas number of the
Theatre Magazine which is just from the
PI sses The magazine is a weekly pub
heathen issi > tl by Jones ft Hammer of
Salt Lake anti 52 times each year the
publishers produce a book of more than I
ordinary attractiveness But the Christ I
mas number containing nearly 200 pages
of fine illustiations in various tints and
colors is by far the most pretentious pub
lication ever issued
The claim that there is nothing like it
in America is well substantiated by this
most recent production People who have
been prominent In local theatricals or
theatrical management stars who have
become prominent on the stage generally
< > h T
and fixed favorites in Salt Lake men
who have contributed to the art litera
ture and science of the west are pictured
in a gallery as imposing as any collection
and in as artistic a manner as printing
skill can produce
Stars who will appear In coming pro
ductions at Salt LaKe house and those
who have nade bits here during the year
are presented in a rainbow of color From
all appearances no expense has been
spared by the publishers in making the
Christmas number Just a little bit more
valuable and attractive than any publi
cation of the year
Then too the book contains a wealth
of information about the stage gossip of
playerfolk and plays of managers and
magnates Gotten up In magaslne form
it will be treasured amohg current works
It more nearly approaches the acme of
art than any recent contribution and hi
