Annulling of Incorporation by County
Commissioners Ignored
Special to The HeraldRepublican
NephI Dec 24The order of the
board of county commissioners an
nulling the incorporation of Mammoth
and Robinson as a city under the name
of Mammoth City has been entirely
Ignored and the whole proceedings
of the election have been certified to
the secretary of state by County Clerk
Vickers I Is understood that Cerk
commissioners acted upon a petition
asking for annulment on the grounds
that the original petition was not
signed by 100 property owners I
appears that the time for the com
missioner to have acted should have
been when the petition of the 100 sign
ers was presented but when they
once ordered the election for incorpo
ration the power to annul passed be
yond their jurisdiction and became a
matter for adjudication by the district
court when the point was properly
raised As far as mater stand now
Mammoth is a duly incorporated city

APPEAL TO FEDERATION
MOVEMENT WILL BECOME ONE
OF CONSIDERABLE MAGNITUDE
Open war was declared last night by
the structural iron workers upon all
agencies that a sending laboring men I
t Salt Lake City and the action at
Building Trades Council hall will
eventually enlist the support of all
branches of skilled labor making the
movement one of the greatest of Its
kind in the west
The structural iron workers openly
declared against the Importation of la
boring men of their kind on the ground
that the hom guard was sufficient
t handle all of the steel work In Salt
Lake
There are at present several hundred
structural Iron workers here many of
whom are Idle because of the cessation
of building operations The number of
men skilled in bridge and iron work is
being steadily increased and the local
union charges the Real Estate
chrge Rel Ette associa
tion and other agencies with bringing
more men here on the ground that there
is plenty of work and no one to p
form it
Appeal to Federation

a direct appeal will be sent to all
diret app wi b st a the
building trades councils affiliated with
the American federation and to the
parent body itself asking that in the
cause of workingmen generally no
more skilled laborers b sent to Salt
Lake as the building operations do not
Justify it The situation a seen by the
skilled workmen in Salt Lake will be

argued for an open door but
those who called attention to the fact
that most of the workmen here have
homes in Salt Lake and are able t do
the work that is to b done this winter
prevailed and the vote was in favor of
the closed door
The structural iron workers say that
other unions will take the matter up
and that sentiment along this same
line ha been brewing for some time
They deny that the movement is detri
mental t Salt Lake because they are
protecting th city from being flooded
with skilled workmen who are brought
here under false pretenses and who
will have nothing to do when
