Provo Plan 't of Organization Being Discussed by Local
Club. Will Help Young to Get Homes on Easy
Terms. Hotel to Receive Attention.
At tbo mooting of the Board f
Directors of thq Commercial Boost
ers Club held Novomber 13, tbo mat
ter of organizing a Homo Building
Benefit Society was discussed con
siderably. Mr. J. E. Cardon, chair
man of the committee appointed
somo tlmo ago to Investigate tbo ad
visability of organizing such a socl-:
oty In Logan, reported very favorably
on tho proposition.
A Homo Building and Benefit Soci
ety was organized in I'rovo In 1901.
Tbo following communication to Mr.
LoRoy Cardon from Mr. P. N. Tay
lor, of Provo, will show what suc
cess thoy havo bad tboro with tho
Provo, Nov. 8, 1912.
Mr. T. Loltoy Cardon,
Logan, Utah.
Dear Sir: At tho request of Mr.
John F. Bennett, I tako pleasure in
reporting that in February 1904, wo
organized tho Provo Building and
Loan Society with fifty-four stock
holders, and paid into tho society to
commence with $2,570. In January
of this' year wo had 489 stockholders
with a paid In capital of $1G4,4C5. It
was necessary to Increase our capital
from $500,000 to $1,000,000. During
the eight years we assisted In tbo
erection of 13C homos. In 1911 our
Interest collected amounted to $11,
494.38; and 'our rovonues for 1912,
Interest and new stock subscribed,
will amount to something over $44,
000, giving us working capital until
next year amounting to $208,000. Wo
havo been able to declare dividends
In round numbers at 8 per cent.
v Of course you understand that tho
' $) naturo of tho organization Is that nil
1m the officers work without pay. ex
cepting tho secretary. Wo paid our
secretary something like $15.00 n
month for tho first year and havo
been increasing him from year to
year until wo aro at present paying
him $50.00 a month.
At tho rate wo aro going wo will
havo In tho neighborhood of 170
homes that tho little society has
helped to build during Its llfotlmo,
at the close of the year 1912. You
will readily catch tho spirit of tho
organization. It helps young men
to get homes by monthly sayings In
a way that would be Impossible for
them to get otherwise, as itholr dues
and interest are only a llttlo mor
than tho rent would bo. Of courso
I It Is necessary for tbem to get their
land and havo some Investment in
the property in order to make it a
safe investment for, the Investor.
I certainly trust that Logan will
start an Institution of this kind and
no one will ever, regret going Into
It. Anything that I can do to encour
age tho starting of such a society,
I certainly shall bo very happy to
do so. Very truly yours,
It was decided that it bo tbo senBO
of tho board of directors of tbo Com
' merclal Boostors Club that wo favor
tho proposition of organizing a Homo
Building and Bcnoilt Society and
that a committee of three bo appoin
ted to arrange for a meeting of tho
public when If enough nro Interested
tho organization will bo Effected.
Tho tlmo of tho meotlng will bo an
nounced later. Thoso soclotles havo
been of tho greatest berioflt to Salt
Lako City and Provo, and should
bo tho same to Logan If operated
proporly and supported by tho peo
ple Wo hear a great deal of talk
about getting moro people here. Why
not promoto something that will
keep our young people boro. Many
leavo because jtboy cannot savo
enough to buy them a homo. If such
tftu socloty were organized It would

Nov. 14, 1912
To tho Honorable Board of Comrs.
Logan, Utah.
Gentlemen: As thoro aro sever
al heads of departments In the city
and It seems that thoro Is a dispo
sition on tho part of somo of tho
employees to leavo their work for
ono or moro days without asking por
mission of tho department Supt. I
feel that It will bo for tho best in
terest of Logan City that no employe
be allowed to leave thoir post of
duty without first obtaining permis
sion from tho superintendent of
their respective department.
Respectfully submitted.
Newark, N. J. Nov. 14. Tho as
sertion that Woodrow Wilson wns the
only presidential candidate who owes
nothing to tho Mormon vote was
made by Miss Elizabeth Vermllyo In
nn addrcBSo at th0 meotlng of tho
Women's Homo Missionary socloty
of tho Methodist Episcopal confer
ence. Miss Vermllyo pointed out that
tho president-elect may bo able to
do moro than any other man has
dono In overthrowing tho political
power of Senator Reed Smoot and
his following.
Referring to tho recent presiden
tial campaign she said:
"Tho candldato who was elected
to tho presidency last Tuesday Is
tho only candldato who owes noth
ing to tho Mormon voto. Somo of
his workers suggested a Mormon
plank, but ho declined to havo ono.
Instead, ho gavo his encouragement
to thoso who aro endeavoring to
havo tho facts Known. Our prcsldonf
elect owes nothing to tho Mormon
voto, and can, If ho will, do more
for the ovorthrow of tho political
power of this organization than any
othor man could have dono. If tho
senate Is to bo Democratic, perhaps
tho powor of Reod Smoot with his
arbitrary methods as head of tho pub
licity bureau, will bo destroyed and

Smlthflold, Nov. 15. Much sympa
thy la felt for Mr. and Mrs. Hugh
Doudlo of Benson ward In tho loss
of their only daughter. Tho little
threo-year-old girl was found face
down In a water box containing about
six Inches of water. The supposition
is that tho child must havo choked
and then fallen Into tho trough, as
a pieco of meat was found in tho
child's mouth, and ordinarily a child
at that ago could have gotten out.
Tho mother Is In a precarious con
dition and Is nearly overcomo with
tho grief. Mrs. Doudlo was formerly
Lettlo Miles of this city.

Latest Fgures 8how That Roosevelt
Has Plurality of Fifty-three
Over Wilson
San FranclBco, Nov. 14. With but
ono precinct missing and only nlno
counties, remaining to bo canvassed
officially, California gavo Roosevelt
today a plurality over Wilson of 60.
Tho final result remained, however,
in tho keeping of three populous
counties which had not certified to
their returns.
In Los Angeles county, tho best
unofficial Information was that Wil
son had gained 72 votes on a can
vass of tho county nearly completed.
In Alameda county, containing tho
cities of Oakland and Borkoloy, sim
ilar sources gavo Wilson 32. In Snn
Frnnclsco, although Democratic head
quarters announced a Wilson gain of
34, tho registrar bolloved that cor
responding clerical errors in tho
Roosovelt column would leavo tho
net result negative.
In tho missing mountain precinct
tho registration records show 12 Re
publican voters ono Socialist and
ono recluso who refused to state his
party affiliations. Not reckoning this
precinct, Wilson had an unofficial
lead of 50 votes.
In point of fact, no figures that
can now bo compiled seem of much
valuo, Tbo highest Republican or
Democratic elector In ono county Is
shown by tho roturns not necessarily
to be tho highost In anothor county
so that a split electoral representa
tion Is almost ccrtnln and how Cali
fornia has gone will not bo known
until tbo secretary of stato certifies
to tho voto by Individual electors and
It appears whethor Wilson or Aoose
velt has a majority of tho delegation.
