Whether the scarcity of coal in Salt I
Lake is a matter for Joking or a serious I
and incon Mimnt reality depends alto i
gether on tin puint of view and reports

iliit the railroad had delivered five car

SEBURN RICHARDS
after all and that his prevailing
gloomy disposition over the books in
a business college contributed toward
the promise of a brilliant future as an
accountant convinced Seburn Richards
that life was worth living On Decem
ber 11 he wrote a letter to his sister that
he was bent upon suicide Now he has
come to the conclusion that life is worth
while
Late Thursday night Richards re
turned to the home of his father F S
Richards a farmer of Sandy and told
him that he would begin life all over
again that he would go back to the
business college where his progress had
appeared dull in his own estimation
and that he would carry out his ambi
tion to become a great accountant re
gardless of further stumbling blocks
No one had encouraged him that he
was getting along splendidly in the
business college or rather no one could
give him such encouragement when his
uncompromising cold judgment told
him and rather mercilessly that there
had been no excuse for the inaccurate
addition of a certain column of figures
Richards went away to end his life
because he was a blocky just when
his instructors were beginning to re
gard him as the rare type of a coming
office man The newspapers for the
first time told him that he was the kind
of a student who would be valuable to I
any community and upon whom busi
ness men would be well willing to de
pend
When Chief of Police S M Barlow had
been shown the letter which threatened
suicide by the father of the boy he at
once concluded there was something
wrong and he encouraged the news
papers to print the views of his instruc
tors and a photograph of young Rich
ards The result is the salvation of the
young student
In the letter which Sebum Richards
wrote to his sister Mrs Mamie Epling
at McGill Nev he said that he had
determined to end his life and that he
was going to commit the deed in some
outoftheway place where his body
would never be found and where there
would be no necessity of the defrayal of
funeral expenses
UTAH TO SUPPLY
MARKETS OF WORLD
Pumice Stone Industry Is to Be
Opened on January 10
Next
Utah has pumice stone to supply the
markets of the world and on January
10 the first carload shipment of this
product to be sent out of the state since
1896 will be started on Its way from
Black Rock Utah consigned to the
Cudahy Packing company at Omaha
On that date a new commodity freight
tariff on the Salt Lake Route quoting
rates of 8 a ton on pumice atone will
go in effect This rate is already on file
with the interstate commerce commis
sion and at the local offices of the com
pany The rate was made by the rail
road at the request of representatives
of the eastern packing company who
in the future will use Utah pumice
stone in the manufacture of soaps and
cleaning compounds instead of the
pumice that for a century has been
coming mostly from the slopes of
mighty Vesuvius in Italy
About six months ago an agent of the
packing company was sent to Utah to
investigate reports of deposits of pum
ice stone He made the trip to Black
Rock and looked up some old pits from
which shipments of small quantities
had been made some fifteen or twenty
years ago Samples aggregating more
than a ton were picked out and aent to
Omaha and Chicago where exhaustive
chemical and practical tests were made
These tests demonstrated that the old
volcanoes of Utah melted up as fine a
grade of rock as Vesuvius ever com
pounded and moreover the long ex
tinct volcanoes around the shores of
Lake Bonneville deposited lava with
such care that it ie easily procured for
shipment
Although the supply of lava or pum
ice stone used by manufacturers in the
United States has been coming from the
South Sea islands and from Italy trans
portation by water has been cheap in
asmuch as pumice stone has been a fa
vorite ballast for tramp vessels re
turning to the United States for cargoes
and anything it would bring has been
profit for the carriers
The rate of IS a ton on pumice stone
from Black Rock to the east is simply
reinstating the old rate of fifteen or
twenty y pars ago that had been dropped

A SALT LAKE BOOSTER I
Having shown his faith in a greater
Salt LaKe by the investment of thou
sands of dollars in new uuildings anu
in various banking and business enter
prises FranK Knox president of the
national Bank of the Republic is cer
tainly entitled to be classed among the
liveliest of Salt Lake boosters Mr
ivnox never loses an opportunity to say
a good word for Salt Lake and because
of his prominent position in banking
circles his word has great weight witn
prospective homeseekers and with men
who are looking for an opening for
their capital
Looking over the past record of
events it seems to me that the old year
is going out in a blase of glory sala
Mr Knox yesterday It is a year
that will long be remembered as one of
the greatest for advancement and de
velopment in the history of Slt Lake
The past year marks the beginning of a I
new era for Salt Lake In fact it is the
Beginning of its career as a city of im I
portance in the nation It has been
my observation that cities which liuvu
arisen to great importance have had in
the beginning a slow period of growtn
Salt Lake was slow in getting a start j
but now that the dawn of a greater
city is breaking I can see no clouds to
obscure the sun of prosperity Every
body is willing and ready to take a
hand in the boosting game and the op
portunities of the city are bound to be
scattered broadcast
I believe that I can safely say that
the growth and development in new
business during the past year has been
more than double that of any previous
year For instance the millions of dol
lars of new buildings for which permits
have been issued have practically all
been financed by local money which is
something unprecedented in the history
of city building Most of the cities of the
country have been built up largely by
borrowing from the outside There haw
been no loans of any particular magni
tude made on the millions of dollars
worth of new building construction thifc
yearI marvel at the resources that this
city has developed Each day has been
prolific of surprises and I see no rea
son why next year should not be even
more prosperous It seems that in 1910
the city ought to advance more rapidly
than it hs fver don Ivfore

As a general rule I believe that the

think that any can be named Every

The Utah Light Railway company is

horsepower which will be the third the
company has Installed It will COiItIG

the fact that despite the 5500 horse
power already in use by the company
the demands on buoy nights are such that
all the current Is used
The officers of the company believed
with the installation of the last genera

TURKEY MISSING I
FROM HIS THRONE
Markets Besieged by Those
Who Didnt Shop Early
Enough
Sorry madame but we old out of
turkey before noon today was the al 1
most universal answer given last night
by marketmen to those who stormed
their places of business demanding tur
key at any price
Nearly every proprietor in town last
night had this answer to make when
asked for turkey Here and there a few
frozen birds would be found but for the
most part chicken was the only thing
obtainable According to the reports
of the proprietors of the different stores
many families will go without turkey
today
Its simply a case of nothing doing
said one man last night I have tried
about one dozen store and they all
have the same answer I guess Its
chicken for mine tomorrow
One large dealer on First South street
said last night that they had sold over
27000 pounds of turkey yesterday and
that the stock was exhausted before
noon Since then he said we have
had more calls than I would care to
count but we could do nothing and I
dont know of a place in town that has
any turkeys tonight
There wr s a grand rush around the
various saloons cigar stores and pool
halls where signs reading Big turkey
raffle tonight were to be seen in the
windows those unable to purchase a
bird taking all the chances they could
to win one
A report was heard in several stores
last night to tin effect that a special
shipment of 40000 pounds of turkey
from Missouri had been held up by
snow blockades and would not arrive
before Monday and this is given by a I
number of retailers as the reason for

BRIDE IS WON ON
A 35 CASH BASIS
Suitor Who Offered to Pay
100 Is Defeated in
Court
Upon his promise to pay 135 to John
Ovuik of Tooele all opposition to John
islir as a husband for Apes Roman
WitS dropped yesterday Dan Radovich of
Midvale was appointed guardian for the
girl by Judge M L Ritchie in the dis
I trict court a marriage license was is
I sued to Miss Kosman upon the consent
i ot Radovich and within a comparatively
few minutes she was the legally wedded
i wife of Gisler through the medium of
I J L Eldredge marriage license deputy
ill the county clerks office
Thus Louis Pertecko who was willing
to pay the girls brotherinlaw WO to
> claim her as a bride must needs hunt an
other girl for a wife
I When the legal tangles began to uncoil
yesterday it did net take long to put
matters in such a shape that Gisler could
claim Miss Rosman who is rather a
pretty Austrian hailing from the prov
ince of Gran
The chief fight against Gisler was
waged by Miss Rosmans brotherinlaw
John Ovnik of Tooele Ovnik married
Miss Bosnians sister and advanced the
money for the young womans passage to
the United States She joined her sister
in Tooele but left about two weeks ago
with Pertecko because as she told Judge
Ritchie yesterday Ovnlk did not earn
enough money tosupport his own family
and would not pay her money or give her
clothes for her own work Pertecko took
Miss Rosman to Dan Radovlch who con
ducts a rooming house in Midvale Rado
vich engaged her to help about the place
But the girl did not care for Pertecko
and wanted Gisler Pertecko was willing
to pay Ovnik the 1100 for bringing the
girl to this country and naturally Ovnlk
was for Pertecko because Gisler had said
he would not pay day of the SlOG For
three days the Austrian tried to get a
marriage license but the girl was under 18
years of age and Clerk Eldredge refused
to issue the license because of the pro
tests of the brotherinlaw that she was
under age and could not get her fathers
consent
Yesterday Ovnik seeing it was hope
less to insist that his sisterinlaw should
marry Pertecko said he would be sofia
tied with a payment of 35 Gisl > r agreed
to pay this and the last obstacle was
removed
Judge Ritchie questioned Miss Roaman
through Radovich and later asked Rado
vlch what he knew of the girl Sheriff
Joseph Sharp was called into the ease
as it was to him that Ovnik had ap
pealed to stop the marriage When Ois
ler
agreed to the payment of 135 Judge
More appointed Radovlch guardian The
three then went to the county clerks of
fice with the legal papers naming Rado
vich guardian and called for Clerk Eld
redge The paper was presented Radovich
gave his consent and the license was la
sued Then Mr Eldredge went into Judge
Ritchies court room and conducted the
marriage ceremony uniting the two AWl
trians after their hard
fight for a license
The couple returned last night to Mid
vale where they will make their home

MORAN LANDS TWO
BIG PAVING JOBS
Competition Cuts Prices Below
City Engineers Estimates
on Work
NEW FIRM IS UNDERBID
FIRST AVENUE AND NINTH EAST
CONTRACTS ARE LET
Contracts for the paving of Ninth East
street from South Temple street to the
city limits to the south and the paving of
First avenue from J street to Virginia
street were let yesterday by the board of
public works to P J Moran the lowest
bidder The Ninth East work will cost
J15147447 and First avenue will come to
7059335 The prices for the work fall
about 43009 below the estimates of the
city engineers office
The meeting of the board of works yes
terday afternoon attracted a large num
ber of contractors on the large Jobs and
it was evident that the contractors were
in for competition Moran still smarting
because Strange A Maguire won the Tenth
South paving from him sent In a low bid
and walked away with both Jobs without
trouble
Bids on sidewalk extension No 13C
which is on Fifth and Sixth South streets
I and between Tenth and Thirteenth East
streets were returned to the bidders un
I opened This work was advertised about
two years ago and there was a serious
question as to the legality of the claims
since the new laws passed by the last
legislature The notice of intention will
probably be readvertised and notices to
contractors published again
Bids Are a Surprise
The bids on the Ninth East paving
were as follows P J Moran 15147447
McKay I Reid 1033403 Strange Ma
guire 18611191 Clark Henery Construc
tion company ySH3ttM The corrected
estimate of the city engineer placed the
price for the work at 19106281 Moran
got the work
For Fifth avenue the iollowing bids
were received P J Moran 7058335
Strange A Magutre W67W48 Clark Hen
ery Construction company 9712477 Mc
Kay II Reid 84X12 The city en
gineers corrected estimate was 8992154
This job too went to Moran without a
struggle
It is believed that had it not been for
the advent of Strange A Maguire into the
local field the price for the work would
have been about the same as the city
engineers estimate The new asphalt con
tractors jumped in and surprised com
petitors and friends about a month ago
by underbidding Moran for the Third
South work
Clark Henery Construction company la
another new firm of contractors In Salt
Lake The firm has headquarters in
Stockton Cal
Estimates aggregating 5744701 of
which P J Moran received 3570654 in

I GIVEN HANDSOME
I SOliD SILVER SET
Rev Dr F B Short Is Gener
ously Remembered by His II
Congregation
The annual Christmas entertainment
of the First Methodist Episcopal church
was held at the church but night and
was attended by nearly the entire con
gregation
I A feature of the affair was the pre
sentation of a silver set to Rev Dr F
B Short the pastor Judge George F
Goodwin made the address of presenta
tion and spoke at some length of the
appreciation in which Dr Short is held
by the members of
the church He re
ferred to the coming of Dr Short to the
pastorate of the church saying When
Dr Short first came here we found that
he was not short by a great many feet
In fact we found that he was so ex
tremely long that he had to go into the
cellar to find his feet And after he had
been here a while we found that he had
no shortcomings Inside of six months
after his start as pastor of the First
Methodist Episcopal church he had run
that long frame of his all over the city
and had succeeded
in collecting over
onehalf of the enormous debt against
the church at that
time and I say
without fear of contradiction that he is
now loved and admired by every mem
ber of this congregation And it does
not end here We like Mrs Short and
the little Short And in making this
little Christmas gift to the Shorts we
have not forgotten either of them
Judge Goodwin then presented the slI
ver service to Dr Short who responded
by saying that he believed Mrs Short
should speak as she was holding onto
the present Mrs Short made a brief
speech of appreciation and thanked the
members for their gift
A program of music singing and reci
tation was held in connection with the
entertainment A large Christmas tree
had been put up and gifts of candy had
been provided for > ar > h child present
