ideals but warned them that their aspira I
tors must be coupled with practical
rr thods Life is a struggle he said
J ca must not keep in the clouds Your
Idals must be such as can be realized
The blue bay of Naples never was more
beautiful than when the steamer Prlnz

As soon as the gangplank had been
lowered the official party of welcome
boarded the steamer and was conducted
aloft to the bridge where the Roosevelts
were bidding goodbye to the captain
Cordial greetings were exchanged Mr

Violent Gale on Great Salt Lake
Does 10000 Damage City
Too Swept by Terrific Storm
The main pier at Saltair was completely demolished in the wind
storm last night It supported 325 bath houses In a great mass of
debris these were hurled into the air by waves that rose nearly thirty
feet in height
Nearly 100 yards of the railroad track leading to the main pavilion I
was also washed out So severe was the tremendous swell of the rush
ing water that it twisted rails like hoop iron I
It is estimated that the loss will exceed 10000
Without warning the storm wept down on the renowned summer I
resort at 9 30 oclock as near Erne st Somes the custodian can remem
ber Though the waves had been running whitecaps all afternoon there
had been no previous indication of the tremendous storm
With the suddenness of a break In a
dam or the rush of a great flood the
waves began to rise until they were liter
alb mountain high Alarmed carpenters
and others who are stopping at Saltair
rushed from their living quarters only to
be driven back by the fierce wind and
dnving pray from the waves
Scarcely had those at the pavilion been
attracted by the high wind before there
came a great crash Splinters from the
bth houses began to fly high in the air
Then came a roar and crash that almost
trught occupants of the pavilion to
t r knees Looking through knot holes
i shatter Somes could see the great
i lifted into the air and fall with a
l asl Then a mass of great splinters be
ga i t fly with the wind piercing bulld
hiss > of this construction
Fovmg that the entire Saltair pavilion
Wi id in washed away carpenters and
orVr oooipants huddled together in an
effort to rach the mam land by way of
tho railroad track Inder the tremend
ous wind they had to crawl on hands and
s When the wind rose to a higher
I th and the swell of the waves began
to Jar the entire pavllldn they lay prone
Somes says that the flying splinters fre
quently made them believe that they were
flirting with death in real earliest
Nearly exhausted ther reached tie main
entrance to Saltair only to be defeated Ih
their attempts to get to the main land
when the railroad trestle was swept away
Earth filling of the track was washed
I away with the swell and rails were knot
tort and buckled
Returning to the sleeping quarters lar
ppnters and others employed at Saltair
I wiited until the storm had abated con
stantly fearing that the entire pavilion
1 would be wrecked when their lives would
not have been worth a penny They made
a quick inventory of the damage in the
darkness and estimated that it will ex

electrical displays were at First South
and Third West streets Brigham street
between Seventh and Eighth East streets I
Main and Eighth South streets and Fifth
West and Seventh South streets The I
cars were out of service in many parts
of the city It required nearly an hour
of dangerous work to repair the fallen
wire at First South and Third West
streets while repair crews were only
able to report progress in connecting
other wires up to 11 oclock last night
Window Panes Smashed
Windows In practically every section
of the city were shattered under the ter
rific wind pressure During the early
stages of the windstorm one of the lar
gest show windows at the Greenewald
Furniture company gave away with a ter
rific crash scattering glass over the dis

late hour last night
It is not proposed to attempt to prevent

dential elcHons the restriction applying

George W Aldrldge for twenty years

Unusual interest attaches to the elec
tion to be held April 19 for two
reasons The recent overturn in the
Fourteenth Massachusetts district of a
Republican majority of 14000 has
awakened nationwide interest in con
gressional elections The second fac
tOT of interest comes from the efforts
of Mr Aldridges opponents to use
against him theJact that he received
1000 from fire insurance companies
following the passage of a bill in
which they were Interested Mr Ald
ridge admits taking the money and
declares that his action was proper
that the check was not a personal gift
but was used for the benetit of the
Republican party in Monroe county
There are indications however that
some Republicans are not satisfied
with Aldridges explanation and an ex
pression of this feeling came today
when a meeting was held to protest
against Mr Aldridges nomination

at Sing Sing had summoned him there
and demanded 10000 in behalf et Senator

Senator Sullivan retorted today in addi

nials of the whole incident Look up re
port No 314 of the Fortyfifth Congress
entitled Investigation of George F Sew
Mr Seward is more than 70 years old
and is a nephew of William H Seward
secretary of state In Lincolns cabinet
and was himself at one time United
States minister to China
It is with his conduct in office that the
congressional report deals
Tie report contains th history of an
investigation by the Houg committee on
expenditures in the state department be
gun on February 26 1S78 A majority of
the commission recommended that Mr
Seward be Impeached of high crimes and
misdemeanors in office saying that he
was guilty of injustice tyranny extortion
and bribery in his official capacity of
judge of consular court at Shanghai
an office he had held before he became
minister The minority recommended his
acquittal and the proceedings were sub

Attorney for Glavis Fishing for
Evidence After Closing
His Case
Washington April 2Secretary of the Interior Ballingar has protest
ed to the congressional committee investigating the interior department
and the forestry service against the demands of Attorney Brandeis for
records of his department as uan oblique attempt to control the manner
in which the evidence I shall present shall be introduced Under date
of March 29 Mr Ballinger wrote to Chairman Nelson stating that the
requests of Mr Brandeis for papers since the inquiry began have been
so numerous and extensive as to result in great inconvenience and
That which may be described as the
prosecution in these proceedings has now
rested continued Mr Balilnger and
evidence is now being introduced by
counselrepresenting me From this state
ment it is obvious that the demands of
Mr Brandeis canno r longer be regarded
as in furtherance of a proper Inquest
but as being made as a mere fishing
As the prosecution has rested and
as all papers heretofore called for have
been furnished it is respectfully sub
mitted that demands upon this depart
ment for records made hereafter should
not be allowed unless 0 they relate to
some matters to which the evidence now
being presented inmy behalf relates and
which records have not heretofore been
presented 2 or the nature of the evi
dence desired to be set out together with
a statement of what the records will so
show and the names of the informants
upon whom the applicant relies for In
formation to support the demand so
A further protest is made by Mr Bal
linger In a letter under date of March no
in response to Mr Brandeis request for
affidavits In possessfon of Chief Davison
I repeat that in these applications
made now when the evidence of the prose
cution has closed and ours has been m
tered upon I see nothing else than an
oblique attempt to control the manner III
which the evidence I shall
present shall
be introduced Of course I stand read
in so far as possible to
comply with all
orders of the committee made after mal
ten to which I have referred have been
made the subject of consideration
The mot startling feature of toda a
session was the declaration of H K
Love formerly a special agent of the IanI
office while under crossexamination ov
Attorney Brandeis that John W Dudle
former registrar of the land office at
Juneau Alaska had told him in Juneau
last February that an agent of oilier a
Weekly had intimated to him that it
would hn tvrth from 5000 to 10000 to
him to umr to Washington to testify
The cunuirtt appeared so anxious 10
ascertain s I I 111 1 any improper attempt
to influence testimony In The inqiiry had
been made that It was ds ide < 1 to sub
pr > ena Mr Dudley to tell what he knows
After the committee adjourned toddy
until next Friday Attorney Vertices saill
