Y 1 C CI A STRIKES
FINANCIAL REEF
Building and Site Sold at Pub
lic Auction by the
Sheriff
PROMISES NOT MADE GOOD
Subscriptions Made by Prominent
People Who Have Since Failed to
Produce the Money
As a result of the financial tangle
surrounding the affairs of the local
Young Mens Christian association the
building and lot at First South and
State streets were sold at public auc
tion yesterday at sheriffs sale to the
Utah Savings Trust company for
41St706 and six months is given
the association to raise the necessa
ry money to pay off the heavy mort
gage on the building and property and
redeem it for the purposes for which
St was built
Already arrangements are being
made by the directors of the Y M C
A to raise the necessary money
which Secretary W E Wright places
at 30060 This money has been sub
scribed but donors have failed to
make good the notes to which they
subscribed < < In the campaign for funds
conducted by the association last
spring At that time an effort was
made to raise 150000 to take up the
bonds outstanding clear all the debts
and start the association on a new
tooting This money was needed to
raise a first and second mortgage on
the building and property given at
the time improvements were made
eight years ago
It is said that a few of the best
known business men in Salt Lake who
subscribed to the fund have since
failed to pay the money and have left
the association in a critical financial
condition which has lasted over a pe
riod of several years
Tlmo To Show Pride
There has never been a time when
the people of Salt Lake have a better
time to show their civic pride than at
the present time said Secretary
Wright last night We are facing a
very grave crisis and unless this
money is raised the association build
ing will pass into the hands of those
who hold the bonds and mortgages
Some of the friends of the association
who subscribed to the mortgage fund
have not paid the money which we
must raise if the association is to con
tinue
In the Third district court some
time ago the mortgage on the Y M 1 C
A property was foreclosed the judg
ment amounting to 6236004 Of
this the Utah Savings Trust com
pany claims 4098451 Added to this
are the sheriffs fees and commis
sions which brought the total to 41
U701 The property was sold at this
figure to C C Dey representing the
Utah Savings Trust company

CHOIR WILL SING I
IRRIGATION ODE
Movement Started to Send
Musical Organization to Big
Land Show
Plans are already under way for the
government display of dry farm and
irrigated land products at the Ameri
can i Land and irrigation exposition
J which will be held in Madison Square
Garden New York City November 3 to
U next year
Gilbert McCIurs who managed the
national irrigation congress meeting in
Ogden a few years ago writes that he
Is In correspondence with F J Kelsel
of Ogden now In Baden Baden Ger
man A R Heywood president of the
Weber club in Ogden Governor Wil
liam Spry and John Henry Smith who
are member of the executive commit
tee of the exposition relative to tak
ing the Tabernacle choir either of Salt
Lake or Ogden to the exposition
Mr McClurg explains in his letter
that not only would this move be of
wonderful benefit to Utah from the
standpoint of au advertisement but
t hit t concert engagements could be eas
ts v arranged which would more than
uefray the expense of the trip
in the event either of the choirs is
taken to the exposition It will be for
the primary purpose of rendering the
National Irrigation ode at each days
session This ode was written by Pro
fessor J J McClellan and has been sung
by t the Ogden choir at several of the
annual congresses and also by the Salt
Lake choir The exposition offers no
definite contribution toward defraying
the expenses of the trip
The matter of arranging for space for
the Utah exhibit will be taken up by the
board of governors of the Commercial
club at its next meeting and arrange
nents will be made for conferences with
other organizations In the state which
are interested in the project
Mr McCurg states in his letter that
on a recent visit to Washington he
was told by Secretary of Agriculture
Wilson and Secretary of the Interior
Sal linger that the government is contemplating
emplating an extensive exhibit of dry
farm and irrigation land products
which will be separate from the exhibit

Turkeys Can Be Shipped Here
For Less Than the Local Price
jr HATEFUL in the extreme will be
G those who will seek to express
their thankfulness on Thursday
with 32ccnt turkey And even at that
there is likely to be a tinge of resent II
fulness toward the Salt Lake turkey
merchant who demands that price for
the Thanksgiving bird with the retail
prloe obtaining in the smaller sur
rounding towns at 22 cents
On Saturday turkeys were quoted on
the local retail market at 35 cents a
pound Earlier last week they were
still higher Restaurants and hotels are
buying them for 26 cents
In Caldwell Idaho they are retail
ing at 22 cents The express rate on
dressed poultry between Caldwell and
Salt Lake Is 316 a hundred Were
Salt Lake retailers to buy their tur
keys in Caldwell at the retail figure
express them to Salt Lake and sell them
at the present quotation a profit of
over 20 per cent would be realized I
It Is probable In view of the fact
that commission men declare the sup I
ply is ample that local retailers pay
no more to the poultry raiser for the
birds than do those of Caldwell This
being the case adding the ten per cent
on the Salt Lake retail price for the
express charges between the two points
a tribute of not less than 50 per cent
is demanded by the local retailer on an
Investment of capital tied up for con
siderably less than a week
Taking a tenpound turkey for ex
ample purchased in Caldwell for 22Q
It could be laid down on the kitchen
table In Salt Lake for 32 cents while
the Salt Lake market man asks 68
cents more for the same sized foul
making a profit to him of 211 per cent
above the express charges providing he
bought his fowls In Caldwell and paid
the retailers price
In explaining the high price prevail
ing here the Salt Lake retailers de
clare the supply is too great and that
they expect a slump in the price at
least the day before Thanksgiving and
possibly today and they have been
forced to keep the price up In order to
obtain a reasonable profit

Somewhere between the Wasatch

to decipher the history of the weather

Several weeks ago after the order

the bearer was ordered to leave it with

NEEDS MORE MONEY i
TO ENFORCE lAWS I
State Pure Food Bureau Will
Ask Legislature to Provide
Funds for Its Work
With hands tied because of lack of
funds the state pure food bureau and
the state food and dairy commission
will go to the forthcoming legislature
with a plea for more money and sug
gestions for a few mince changes in the
state pure food laws Willard Hansen
jr state food and dairy commissioner
said yesterday that this will be one of
the most Important petitions of the
pure food department of the state gov
ernment that money be provided to
carry out the law
Taken as a whole said Commission
er Hanson yesterday the food and
dairy laws of Utah are as good or bet
ter than those of other states But we
eannot enforce the laws For instance
the law says that all cattle shall be
inspected stamped and marked when
slaughtered for human consumption
This is done for the protection of the
public But we have not the funds to
make these inspections
The law provides that no milk shall
be sent to the market from cows that
are unclean or live in unsanitary sur
roundings This means that we should
make inspections throughout the state
and insist that the farmers keep their
places and their cows In a sanitary
condition But we are unable to do
this because of lack of funds
For the two departments the last
legislature appropriated 11000 or 6
600 for each year Out of that we have
the incidental expenses of the depart
ment office rent and salaries to be
paid And when that is cared for we
are not able to follow out the provisions
of the law Why in Salt Lake City
alone more money is paid than is pro
vided to the state bureaus for the en
forcement of pure food measures We
simply cannot do the work
In the biennial report of the com
missions now being prepared which
will be submitted to the Governor by
the middle of December we will make
several suggestions as to changes in
the present laws and will ask for some
new provisions But we will have to
get money from the state before we
are able to carry out the laws pro
visions We certainly will make a plea
for more money
The state food and dairy commission
and the pure food bureau have held
several meetings preparing the report
but will not finish their work for about
ten days

I UINTAH PEOPlE AROUSED
May rake Step to Prevent Moving of
Land Office From Vernal to
Prior In Carbon County
Hearing that efforts are being made
to remove the government land office
from Vernal Uintaji county to Prloe
Carbon county residents of Uintah
county are preparing to make a stren
uous fight to prevent the change and
may draw up a formal petition to the
government to this end
K M Jones of Myton Uintah coun
ty said yesterday that it would work
a great hardship upon the people of
Uintah county and others who care to
settle there If the land office is moved
At present those filing upon the land
have to go 40 miles to Vernal to re
cord the deeds but if the office is
moved to Price they will have to go
just 40 miles further
According to Mr Jones Myton is
about the center of activity in Uintah
county because of the large Irriga
tion schemes proposed and now being
worked out there Schemes which will
irrigate more than 150000 acres are
being started and some are nearing
completion Many settlers are taking
the land and more will go there he
believes And upon all of these a great
hardship will be worked If they are
forted to go 40 miles beyond Vernal
to tile upon reservation lands

the rates were reduced to exactly the
same as the ChicagoSan Franci O
rate 26 per cent was reduced ii to 15
per cent while four per cent was not
altered
Regarding the four per cent the bu
reau entered an amended complaint
with Commissioner Prouty asking that
the Pacific coast rate be made effec
tive in these remaining commodities
and received the practical assurance
from the commissioner that in the In
vestigation whloh closed September 6
the board had decided upon that ac
tion and that the matter would be ta
ken up in the near future by the com
mission
If the Southern and Southeastern
Mississippi Valley Freight associations
view the matter in the same light as
the commission does said President
Love last night we have ground for
hope that the TransMissouri associa
tion which includes practically all
lines operating west of the Missouri
rive will do likewise
