The cabin Is the property of (he
Daughters of the Pioneers of Ogden
and these ladies have persuaded the
city to have the little old home taken
especial care of until a "final resting
place" is secured.
At present the organization has its
many interesting relics in a special
room in the Carnegie library ouilding
but no place has ever been found for
tho log cabin, which lor yeaa lus

Tbe cabin was discovered by Cap
fain James Drown In charge of a com
pany of the earliest, pioneer and the
property was bought b Captain
Drown from Goodyear in the autumn
HIV 1847 when Goodyear, who by ,i
HI grant from the Spanish government,
owned all property from the Weber
river to Hot Springs md from the
lake to the mountains, part of which
is now Ogden e.ty.
When Captain Drown discovered the
cabin it was surrounded bj a fence
formed of logs anrl it was within this

yesterday morning by an unknown as-

what evidence he could of the affair
'! 1 and threw It down the chimney of an
;. dJoining building, where the police
July celebration was held in Ogden.
In 1857 Amos P Stone, father of .
I. Stone of 1642 Liberty avenue,
bought the cabin from Captain Brown
and used it as a blacksmith shop.
The building was moved from the We
ber rier bottoms to just wesl of the
tabernacle and upon the death of Mr.
Stone, Mrs. Minerva Shaw a .laughter,
purchased the cabin from ber mother
and had it moved to the rear of the
Shai home on Washington avenue a
shingle roof was added .o protect the
This afternoon numerous relic peek
ers are on the ground to see the cabin
moved and to take photographs. Hug
bart Anderson is in charge of the mov
ing, and lie stated that group of peo
ple had gathered at the Shaw resi
dence and were looking over the "old
timer;." All seemed to be especially
interested in the peepholes in the
cabin which were placed thre by the
first owner for the purpose ot "spot
ting" the treacherous Indians with
whom the earh Bettlers of pgden and
he state had numerous clashes.
To Protect Cabin.
The history of the cabin would bo
one of interest to many tourists going
through the city The Daughters of
Pioneers are hoping in the very near
future to secure a satisfactory place
for all the relics which they possess
and a building in which the cabn may
be guarded from the elements
Recently Salt Lake City i --quested
that Hie cabin be brought to the capi
tal where it would be placed en dis
play with other relics of rarly days,
but the ogden organization denied the
Salt Lakers their request and the cab-j
in is to be kept in this city.
So today the little old loer cabin
with a history is to take t.-. third trip
and the Daughters of th" Pioneers are
to see that no harm comes to It.

Strike Lamp Post
1 A bit of Ice on the corner of Twentv
fourth street and Grant avenue averted
B serious accident today, when a run
away horse e kidded on the slipperv
surface and sent a runaway- team into
R liKhl pole.
The accident happened shortlv be
fore 12 o'clock when a team of horses
which were tied in front of a Japanese
establishment, between Grant and
Lincoln avenues, succeeded in slipping
their bridles The animals dashed
towards Washington avenue and at
the intersection at Grant avenue, were
seemingly headed for an automobile
which was crossing the street The
driver of the car on seeing the ap
proaching tem, threw on the emerg
ency brake and stopped his car in the
path of the horses. That the team
would miss the automobile seemed im
possible until the hoof of the horse on
the right side struck thel cy spot.
The horse stumbled and Jerked its
mate from the course, and before the
team could again pursue its mad dash
down the street, it had collided with
a steel street lamp poet. The horses
were drawing a beet wagon which yvas
loaded with 800 pounds of coal.
When the team stopped, bystanders
held the horses until the owner, a Jap
anese farmer, appeared.
