and calling In all the boys It is an
ticlpated that before nightfall today at
least fifty experienced fire fighters I
will be on their way to the burning
country Every man that can b ° j

as to where to go and what to do A
I number of ponies galloped over the
forests last night carrying a rider
I with the message of fire and before
i the early hours had dawned nearly
every ranger and supervisor of the
I national forests of three states
Utah Idaho and Nevada were advised
Ised of tho conditions and they
were buckling on their firefighting
paraphernalia They all hastened to

I speeding toward Montana

telegram from the Salmon forest that
a fire has started in that section that
is threatening n large tract of valu
able limber and towns skirting the
forests lip ordered the supervisor
oC the forest to proceed immediate
I ly to tight the fire and spare neither
money nor men to check It He is in
hopes that by discovering fire in its

road against fire It is considered
hotter to have a small force of men
to traverse the railroad following
closely after trains that arc throwing
burning cinders in every direction
and check fires In their Infancy than
to wait until the fires are under great
headway when it rfnuires an army

Decision as to Gambling in Rooms Over Turf Saloon to be Madc
Codefendant Johnson Dismissed Others Under Advisement
< Arguments Conceded at NoonKelly Again on Stand
< v r r
It now rests with Judge Murphy
lo determine whether o root there
has been gambling conducted In the
rcoms over the Turf saloon on Twen
tyfifth street and If such gambling
leas controlled by J C Watt and
Richard Tyreo Thu case against John
Doo Johnson codojendant with Watt
and Tyree wis dismissed this morn
ing by the municipal court Judge and I
the case against the other alleged
proprietors of a gambling house has
peen taken under advisement the ex I
amination of witnesses and the argu
ments of the attorneys being conclud
ed at noon today
The onl > additional evidence of
fered in the case today was that of
George J Kelly the real estate ovi
vJenco who was first In the witness
stand yesterday morning and who
piomlscd to bring Into court today all
correspondence relative to the leases I
under which the building occuploVl
by the Turf saloon IB now being hold
Mr Kelly with his file of letters did
not prove as good a witness for the
prosecution as It was expected he
would Court rulings and aphasia on
the part of the witness balked the
attempts of City Attorney Devlne to
extract from Mr Kelly Information
of a positive nature
The witness made answer to the
qnerlesy put inquallfylng terms eva
sive enough to be not altogether sat
isfactory to the prosecution He
stated thai the saloon property In
question Is owned by John Harris of
Butte Mont and would not admit
positively that he is acting as Mr
Harriss agent as regards this partic
ular building
lie stated that there are two leases
in existence pertaining to the rental
of the building at 326 Twentyllfth
lUrcet and that the original of these
liijiers are in the hands of Mr Har
ris but that copies of the lenses arc
held by the lessees One covering
tho ground floop Is hell yy Mr
To whom was the second of these
leases given Mr Kelly was aaked
Iy Attorney Devine
There was objection to this ques
tion by the defense and a doubt ap
Ical to the court by the counsels
The city attorney asked the defense
If It would produce the duplicates of
the leases and Attorney Johnson
bluntly staled thiiL the duplicates
would not be produced Tho prosecu
tion then made a strong appeal to
the court to admitsecondary evidence
ripto what was in the document and
the judge agreed to allow the witness
to toll the content of the lease with
the proviso that no might later di
clde to strike out < that part of Kelfor
evidence Kelly Mated that the sec
ond lease was made out to Mr Tyree
What was thp contents of this
secoml lease was the next question
put to the witness by the city 4 at
torney > f
It was just an ordinary lease
renting the upper rooms of the build
ing to Mr Tyree at 25 per month
Meat did It say that the room was
to be leased for Mr Kelly
Au objection to this question was
overruled by the bench and Mr Kel
ly made answer
ull was for saloon purposes I
Do you know It was for saloon
I believe soI know It was not for
gambling purposes
With the conclusion of Mr Kel
lys testimony the prosecution
tested and the defense suited that
there were no witnesses to
ho produced by the defendants The
defense asked that the case against
Johnson bo dismissed for lack of evi
dence connecting him with the chargo
of gambling The prosecution offered
no objection to the request of the de
fense and the court ruled that John
son be declared not guilty
Attorney Horn opened an argument
asking for the exoneration of Mr
Watt because of a lack of evidence
connecting him with the Offense in
question Objections by the prosecu
tion to the action of the defense in
attempting to individualize the oases
were sustained by the court and the
defense opened Its argument for both
of the defendants Attorney Horn
contended Hint there was no more ev
idence connecting Mr Wall with the
supposed gambling in the rooms over
his saloon than thcro would be In
connecting Mr Haywood with a game
of chance in the Wobor club because
he was in the hank building below
There has been no competent
proof produced to show that there has
been any gambling In the Turf room
declared Attorney Horn very em
phatlcally The concluding state
ment of Elderkln the expert on gam
bling was that the money which ho
saw change hands In the rooms might
have > t cn tendered to the recipient
as a gift This shows that even this
witness who has had so much exper
ience In gambling did not know posi
tively that there was gambling going
on In the rooms at tho time charged
There is an absolute failure on the
part of the state to prove that gam
bling was being carried on
I The attorney cited various ruling
of the higher courts In cases of n
similar character Attorney Johnson
I dlscusued the complaint charging the
men with violation of city ordinance
622 and contended that there was no
evidence to show that either of tho
defendants owned or rented knowing
ly the rooms In which the alleged
gambling was being conducted
I There Is no more evidence to con
I nect the defendants with the suppos
ed gambling In the room than there
I would he to connect the Rev Mr El
derkln with the gambling flared At
I torney Johnson vengefully dragging
tho ministers name Into the case and
attempting to present the reformers
life In the southwest as that of a
Santin Sanderson Mr Eldorkln
was In the room a number times
and there Is no evidence to show that
the defendants were in the room at
all And Mr Elderkin seems to know
as much about gambling as cither of
I tho defendants continued tho de
fending lawyer
yNo one has swore that he won or
lost a cent playing with Mr Watt or
with Mr Tyreo and the court cannot
convict thrfJJc men on the evidence
which the stale has produced
Attorney Dovine stated that there
was evidence that Mr Watt owns
and controls the fixtures at the place
In question
Mr Watt said the prosecuting
attorney controls the Ingress a nil
e ess to the gambling rooms and
he leases the place from Its owner
lie has the license lo conduct the sa
loon below lIe gambling house The
testimony of Mr Kelly shows that
the defendants hold the leases to both
the upper and lower rooms at 32C
Twentyfifth street and witnesses
have sworn that gambling was going
on In these rooms on the night of
August 3 The court cannot reject
this evidence it would bo preposter
ous The defendants hold tho
duplicate lease and the or
iginal Is out of the
urisrll ton of this courl and It is
therefore necessary that the state
ments of Mr Kelly regarding this pa
per be accepted by Ito court
Tho prosecution reviewed the tcstl
mon > of the various witnesses tend
ing to prove that there was gambling
going on in the Turf rooms At the
conclusion of the city attorneys argu
ment the courl stated that he would
rot render his decision until he had
looked up some legal points > Just
when the decision of the court will be
delivered cannot he determined as ho
set no time for stating It
The case against John We
charged with violating the gmnbll 3
I ordinance was dismissed on request
of the city attorney Who acknowl
I edged thai he had been unable to se
cure sufficient evidence lo convict tho
The case against J F Smith and
E A Smith proprietors of the Ele i

tomorrow morning It is expected
that this will be the most important
of all the gambling cases to come be

An Address by the Mayor and City Council
Statng Why It Is Necessary to Vote
for Bonds on September 6th 1910 Unless
the Bonds Are Voted the City Must In
crease the Taxes or Abandon the Water
Extension and Improvements Shall the
City Go Forward or Backward
The City of Ogden wilP hold a special election on Tuesday Sep
temher 6th IfllO for the purpose of authorizing the issuing of
100000 in bondH the some to he used to build an additional conduit
from Cold Water Canyon to the new reservoir also to build It new
conduit loading from the new reservoir to the distributive system
and also to build a small dam for Hit storage of water in Cold Water
The present conduit running down Ogden Canyon was built
20 years ago and is too small for presont needs If water cxtcn
arc to be made more water must be secured at once tI
The following water main extensions arc demanded by tile j
For extensions of water mains giving the location and the name
of the applicant j amounting to between five and six miles of 6inch
mains I i
32nd Street between Wall and Pingrcc by C A Stephens and
21st Street Harrison to Jackson by Pilhiau Fichtx and others
Pacific Ave North from 28th Street by Alex Baxter and others
32nd Street bet Grant and Wash by D C Lawson and others
34th Street bet Wash and Adams by S S Smith and others
24th Street from Pierce to Tyler by Jno S Corlew and others
Sheridan Ave south of 26th Street hy Chas Ulvcr and othere
Adams Ave from 29th to 33rd Sis by F M Browning and
30th St between Wash and Grant by Geo A Holt and others
New Addition to City Cemetery by Geo Huss and others
West Ogden by Waaatch Orchard Co and others
Madison Ave south of 28th Sf by Fred M Nye and others I
Ogden Ave bet 25th and 36th Sts bv J T Ashby and others
Third St east of Wash Ave by Board of Education and others
Fourth St from Wash to Adams by W B Wodell and others
Adams Ave bet 24th and 35th Sts by IT Can Break and others
Jefferson bet 35th and 36th by J W F Vollccr and others
In addition to these petitions and requests for extensions of
water mains we have had numerous verbal requests from different
districts for extensions and also for the replacingof the 2inch 1
mains by larger ones because the smaller mains do not at the pres
ent time give the water consumers a sufficient supply with so many r
consumers on the small mains This difficulty however cannot be j
overcome even with larger mains unless we increase the supply of
water for the entire distributive system as we are at Die present
time beyond our capacity and cannot give an adequate supply to the
present water takers consequently it would be useless to make any
further extensions without the additional supply of water to be ob
tained by building a new conduit from Cold Water Canyon to our
I new reservoir and coniimnng from the new reservoir down 22nd or
2 rd street to Quincy Avenue which will materially increase the
water supply through the distributive system and give all plenty
of water °
While the city is asking the taxpayers consent to issue the
bonds the mayor and city council promise the people that the bonds
can and will be paid from the profits of the waterworks system in
four annual installments of 25000 each year We propose to issue
the bonds and no matter who are the successors of tho present
mayor and city council they will be compelled to pay the bonds at 11
the rate of 25000 each year The bonds will be for 1000 each find
25 will be made payable in one year 25 in two veers 25 in titre
years and 25 in four years The water department will even pay i
the interest on the bonds
Some people have asked why the oily does not build the new
conduit and run in debt for it by borrowing tho money from the
banks if we can pay back onefourth each year That is just the i
trouble The law sijys the city must not run in debt beyond its
taxes for anyyear except by permission of the taxpayers granted
at a special election The banks will take the debt if it is author
ized by the taxpayers
If the taxpayer of Ogden refuse to authorize us to issue the
bonds there is nothing left for the city to do except to abandon all M
contemplated extensions of the water mains and improvements
Under the law the city council must furnish water for the people
and it takes money to do 4hat Either the taxes will be increased or
the taxpayers must grant us permission to run in debt for four
years by issuing bonds It will not cost the taxpayers one cent to
issue bonds but it will increase the city taxes for two years over I
50 per cent if the money is raised by taxes Vote Yes with no
increase in taxes Vote No and your taxes will be increased or
the improvements will not be made
We submit this matter to the taxpayers of Ogden for their
earnest consideration
Think taxpayer what plenty of water for Ogden city mean
Think of your citys future Grant our request and we promise
to double your water supply by starting the work this fall and
making all improvements and also water extensions above
called for having all ready before the opening of next summer
There will be no carriages or automobiles to lake you to the
polls The city has no money to spend for that purpose Each tax
payer must furnish his own conveyance This question is up to the
taxpayers Let them decide without interference from anybody
Respectfully submitted to the taxpayers of Ogden
