Stake Conference, a New

A Commercial Club, Two
Deaths, Etc., Etc.
Puksion, Feb. U.I.- The quarterly
conference of the Oneida Stake was
held In the auditorium of the O. S.
Academy on the 17th and 18th.
Those of the church authorities pre
sent were President Francis M. Ly
man, Patriarch John Smith, Elder I!.
II. Roberts and Mrs. Lydla D. Alder.
The conference was very well attended
and a fine spirit prevailed throughout.
At the Sunday afternoon meeting
there were over 1300 In attendance
and it was necessary to hold an over
flow meeting In order to accomodate
all. On Wednesday evening before re
turning to Salt Lake, Mrs. Lydla D.
Alder gave a lecture on her travels In
the Ilolyland. The lecture was well
attended and much appreciated by all.

Is to be finished by April 1st, all
brick work to be finished by June 1st.
The building Is to be closed in by
August 1st and the work all com
pleted and the building turned over
by Nov. 1st. This announcement, no
doubt, will correct tllu impression
that has recently been circulated by a
click of agltatots (knockers) that tho
enterprise had fallen through and
that all stock subscribed In the Pres
ton opera house company was to be
turned over to a new company that
was going to build u house up in the
A Commercial Club.
A mass meeting will bo held In the
old district school house on Tuesday
evening for the purpose of organl.lng
a commercial club A number of the
leading ciliens hac signed a petition
asking for such an organization. Wo
hope that such an organization will
surely be effected, as It Is just what
has been needed for a long time that
tlte public Interests may be better
served In promoting new enterprises
instead of having things move to the
benefit of a certain few agltators.as has
been the case in the past.
On Tuesday, Mr. James Harrington,

BLUE BELL MINE IS BONDED!
Los Angeles Man Acquainted with Prop

A mining deal that may pro e to be of
no little impoitancc was consumnatcd
In Logan this week This deal is one
wherein the Illuc Hell Mining Co.,
with claims south of Aon, has
bonded its property for $10,000, with
an eighteen months limit. Tho
gentleman who takes this property Is
one Mr. G. II. Hooper, of Los Angeles,
who was In Logan this week, signed
all papers and posted a JL'OO forfeit to
begin development work Just as soon
as he can get to the prospect.
Mr Hooper pioposcs to do not less
than $500 wortli of development work
each month from now until October,
1st. At that time he will pay the.
company $10,000 or give up tho prop
erty. Should he continue with It,
$10,000 will bo paid at the end or the
following six months and the remain

lieves that a reasonable amount of
development work will bring the prop

capital to push It to a successful mine
can then be secured.
property that despite the fact that tho
Hlue Hell claims are on it railroad sec
tion and that dltllculty Is entirely
probable, he Is not afraid of putting
Ills money Into It. It will bo remem
bered that the Hlue Hell was Incor
porated last spring with the Idea of
selling stock and pushing woik, but It
was learned then that their claims are
on lalhoad ground, and the company
did not have the nerve to sell stock
under such conditions, and the Hlue
Hell dropped out or sight until now.
Up to the present time not less than
$0,000 has been spent on the property.
Possibly tis much as 500 or 000 rect or

greatest advantage, however. The

Tills property is owned largely by
Hon. Joseph Howell, Andrew Nellscn,
of Hyrtim, John and Jas. Saulrcs, and
it Is said these gentlemen might have
sold this property on different occa
sions Once $10,000 was offered, then
$15,000, and later $18,000. They
wouldn't sell, but this was before they
knew the claim was on railroad land.
It Is to be hoped that Hooper really
means business and that Ills faith will
not go unrewarded. It is said that
Hart & Nobcker have been retained

College Ward Case of Rape
Given to Public through Salt Lake Pa
per. Officials to Investigate Matter.
That casu In College Ward, in which
one Nessler Is accused of havlngcarnal
relations with three children of d lifer
ent families In that vicinity- a case in
which effort lias been made to keep
the particulars from public knowledge
and the case from attention by the
civil otllcors lias at last been spread
to tho world In detail through The
Salt Lake Tribune. That publication
features the story In the first column
of Its Friday morning edition and pre
sents all the salient points of the caso
In Its relation to the children, the par
ents, tho chuich authorities, tho civil
law and tho oillclals.
The Story or The Case.
Condensed, The Tribune's story Is
this; One Nessler alleged to be guilty
of Improper conduct board ship In
his transit to this country, now a resi
dent of College ward, some months ago
was alleged to have had carnal rela
tions with at least thrco children un
der fourteen years or age, children or
residents or tho ward. The parents
sought tu have tho miscreant brought
to Justice, but oillclals or the ward
deemed other action best. It is alleg
ed that Nessler confessed his heinous
crime to them, was forgiven and the
parents urged to forgive him also.
Tho forgiveness of rape seemed a dif
ficult thing, and protest has been
made In a quiet way. Though tho
knowledge of tho crlmo has become
general, no action by the civil authori
ties has been taken, because, as the
Tribunes states, the oillclals say they
have no authority until the parents
swear to a complaint.
Thcro is much detail about tho arti
cle, which Tin: Rkpuiilioan docs not
euro to print, but tho families con
cerned are those of A. Koller,Ncubert,
Sorenson and Spetlie, the daughter of
the latter, however, having been able
to resist the advances of tho brute
who would have had relations with
Attorney Will Investigate.
Tiie point of greatest interest about
the article Is the statement thatCoun
ty Attorney Walters lias slgnlllcd a
willingness to push an Invcstlgatlonof
the case If this case Is as represent
ed In The Trlbuno and as it has come
to TriK Rki-uiilicak at different
times, we believe every man of char
acter In tills county will stand by tho
civil authorities in pushing this
matter to the limit.
Dkak Doitou The comment made
on Madame Modjeska is very unfair:
to say that she is tiavellng on a "rep
utation of tho past" Is absurd. Mod
jeska knows when to rctiro ohack
vvli. fiom the stage, and not wait
until the public pushes her oil. Her
acting is realistic, which Is tho high
est praise you can accord an artist.
Th6sn who did not appreciate her
rendering of 'Mary Stuart' havo no
conception of the true artist: and the
"rushing age" must not rush by so
quickly that they fail to catcli the
finest bits of acting. No one can take
the place of Helena Modjeska for a
few years to como and when the
American stage loses her it loses one of
the world's greatest artists. As Lady
Macbctli sho Is Incomparable, and
could Logan's "rushing age" see tho
great diva In the sleeping walking act
they would not say sho was traveling
on a "past reputation."

THE CACHE COM
Has Eair Assurance of a
"Cut-off" Being Built.
And it is Believed Logan

A special meeting of the Hoard of

The "common point" question came
up forconsldeiatlon, Mr. Hendrlckson

belief that the making or Logan a

it seems beyond a doubt that wo arc

deep interest. In the evening's work

that various committees will be able
to produce some definite proposition
for consideration that night.

an Awful Whopper. iH
Messrs Dave Allen and Will Mor-
rcll entertained at the home of the j
latter Wednesday evening. The H
affair was "a George Washington,"
and from conversation It Is gleaned
that tho evening's doings wero of an
exceptionally pleasant and enjoyable
nature The early hours were en-
livened with a phonograph. Asa rule
the appearance or a phonograph on
the scene Is hardly to be hailed with
delight, but when It Is understood jH
that the procccdureso rar as this par-
tlcular machine is concerned was to
sing Into It and produce records, it jl
may be believed that the phonograph H
really furnished pleasure. It is said jH
that the results in this Instance wero H
wondrously surprising and mirth pro- H
voking to the limit. H
The star feature of the occasion, jH
however, was a "lylngcontcst." This H
gamo Is one in which tho participants jH
arc given ten minutes In which to tell H
the biggest Ho possible in a rhyme of jH
not less than four lines. Not one of H
the participants In this instance had jH

wrcatli of laurel:

It is said that tills was so cosy for

might be mentioned that Mr. M
Torgeson was awarded the tlrst prize, M
a diamond weighing four pounds. M
This wonderful prevarication was M
not the startling feature of the game, M
however, but rather tho demoustra- M
tion that Orval Adams couldn't tell a M
