I Attention
Never before in Salt Lake's
history has there been presented
a more brilliant scene than that
which marked last night's grand
parade and electrical pageant of
the National Irrigation congress.
Never before in the city's his-
tory were so many thousands of
people congregated to witness
I a similar celebration. The
f -pageant itself was gorgeous.
The story of irrigation was real-
.., istically depicted. The indus-
B-"- tries resulting from irrigation
'- were splendidly unfolded to
The cjty's streets and build
ings were a mass of colors, and
long before the great column
jfe&, i begnn its victorious march,
SSKtaL: every point of vantage was oc
2SJ3f 'cupied by spectators..,,, The,
jpt ?'" stretched in a thick mass over
the entire course of the parade.
T. . The windows of every building
were black dus of humanity,
. and the tops of the lower struc-
- turea were lined with spectators.
Boys climbed poles, awnings and
balconies. The street cars stop-
' ped running, but their tops were
t ; converted into review platforms
by the populace. The festival
' r and pageant spirit dominated
I . all and carried all before it.
l The chariot of Lucile repre-
f sented the Queen of irrigation
? and Empress of the Valleys, and
Iis conceded to have made the
best appearance in the pageant.
The float was constructed from
the standpoint gf accommodat-
ing the queen and her maids of
I ' honor, representing every county
in the slate. The color scheme
g; wa3 worked out with red, green
I and gold, the state colors.
St While the float was, in a meas-
d ure, simple in contour, it was
P beautiful in its simplicity and
j - proportions. The queen, Miss
W Lucile May Francke, sat in an
K arbor at the rear of the float,
E surrounded by her pages. The
arbor, representing a crown, was
1 worked out in gold. The body of
the float was in Roman columns,
Mr a.n was worked out in silver,
fittingly representing two of the
groatest mineral resources of
I the state. The maids of honor
i sat along the sides of the char
mf iot, between the Roman col-
umns, each of which was tipped
m with incandescent lamps. The
M entire float was festooned in a
myriad lights of the state colors.
9 The flowers and the pretty girls
I typified some of the grace of a
fair domain. Iron conty was
I represented on the queen's float
f by Miss Hilma Hallman of
I Cedar City.
I I The Iron county float was
f trimmed in silver and gold with

week has arranged for more
school rooms in the basement of
the tabernacle, and has added
two additional teachers, Mrs. J.

The increased room and num
ber of teachers will greatly re-
lieve the crowded condition of
the school, reference to which

Kansas City Stock Yards, Sept.
27, 1912.
Cattle received here this week
73,400, last week 74,500, samo
week last year 75,000. Prime
cattle and butcher grades have
sold strong this week, but native
grass steers and stockers and
feeders are 10 to 25 lower for
tho week. Country demand is
heavy, but the extra large num
bers of native grassers being put
forward enables buyers of kill
ing cattle to bear down a little,
and stockers and feeders drop
ped a little on that account.
Qurantine cattlo have sold
steady this week,. Quality in
that division has been lacking,
and most of the steers were in
the butcher class, the grade that
was short in the native division,
hence they met a good demand.
Prime steers sold at $10.90 for
tops this week, highest on rec
ord here. Kansas pasture steers
sold freely at $6.00 to $8.35. and
primo fed westerns brought
$10.10 on several different days.
Stock steers range from $4.50 to
I CoTdratfosfeers sold to feeders
buyers at $0.30 and $G.90, and
to killers at $5 80 this week.
Liberal rocipts are expected
next week, and for a few weeks
ahead, accoimt of frosts this
week in Kansas and Missouri.
Hogs received hero this week
29,300, last week 25,200. same
week last year 48,000. Tho mar
ket has considerable buoyancy,
and bobs up after every attempt
to put prices down, If prices
were not extra high now, the
meagre runs would bring big
advances. Top today is $8.80,

ceived here this week 08,700,
last week 54,300. same week

Los Angeles, Sept. 30. -The j M
senate subcommittee which - has M
been investigating the affairs of I M
Mexicofor the past two years, ' M
the period taking in the Madcro M
and Orozco rebellions, practically M
concluded its labors at the Hotel fl
Alexandria today and will, in the
near future, submit its report H
and recommendations to the sen- fl
ate committee on foreign rcla- M
tions. The report will bo a vol- M
uminous document and will set M
forth these three important fea- H
That the evidence produced ' H
before the investigators points 'M
to the necessity for the United .M
States to intervene in Moxico in H
order that Americans and Amerj?.,,' H
ican interest s would be protecjTdj H
clusively that no American mon- H
ey was used in financing the Or B
ozco rebellion. H
That the evidence tends to es- H
tablish the claim that American - H
-funds were used to finance tho
Madero revolution, and tho re- H
port will point the finger of sus-
picion at two largo corporations. B
Positive proo f of the latter, how- M
ever, may not be forthcoming. H
Committees have been appoint- M
