Defend Their Course in a Statement to This Paper Signed by a Com
mittee Representing the Local Union Arbitration Has
r t Been Accepted by Them I
Ogden Utah Sept 9th 1010
Editor Standard It appearing that
the general public are placing the
blame for the conditions that exist
+ in the building industry of our city
on tho Carpenters Union and feel
Ing that we aro unjustly accused we
take the liberty of writing this let
ter for publication
I As early as January 1st 1910 tho
matter of wages were discussed and
en March iGth a resolution was
adopted whereby wo asked the con
tractors for a minimum wage of > 450
1 i per day an increase of fifty cents
M i over lie wage of last year The con
tractors were Immediately Informed
p of the action taken said scale to take
effect on Juno 1st on June 10th sev
en of the principal contractors serv
ed written notice on the union that
they could not pay the 315Q per day
in the face of this notice on the fol
I lowing day Juno 11th all union car
I penters were Instructed to quit work
for those contractors and all others
1 who would not pay the wages asked
There was ono bnilding which was
started on contract last year namely I
the Dee hospital The carpenters pre
i ferred to finish this building at the
I old scale of 100 per day This offer I
J was refused unless the carpenters
would finish all work then in course
of construction to which the carpen
ters would not agree said woik hay
ing been contracted for after con
tractors had been notified of propos I
ed raise
Matters remained In this condition I
until the middle of August when the
Mayor of the city suggested arbitra
tion to the union and addressed a let I
tcr to the president of tho Carpenters
Union asking said union to submit
I our differences with the contractors
to arbitration I
The carpenters at their first meet I
ing after receipt of the Mayors hot I
ter resolved that the Carpenters I
I Union are now and at All times have I
been willing to submit to arbitration
any and all questions that arise be I
I tween them and their employers
The Carpenters Union are asking I
for nothing that Is not just from their I
point of view and stand ready at
any time to be corrected should It bo I
shown that our demands are unjust

Through artful machinations as
heartless as any ever painted upon
the melodramatic stage Miss Grace
Muler a pretty eighteenyearold girl
has been living in unconscious adul I
tery since the IGih of last February
On that date the young woman was
made the victim of a mock marriage
to Harry Lee at Evanston but it vas
I I not until yesterday that the illegality
of the marriage ceremony became
1 known to her Lee Is now locked in
i I the city jail under a charge of adul
I tery and his girl victim isxs opping at
f y II the home of friends at 2718 Jefferson
I I avenue
ii Lee was arrested Thursday after
J noon on a charge of beating his wife
flv r After his arrest it was recalled by
some of the officers that little more
h than a year ago the man had been
1 sentenced to serve nluetvnlne days
I in the county jail on a similar charge
It was also recalled that at tnat time
r I Leo was married to another woman
and that he had never secured a di
I vorce from his former wife Leo was
1 e 1 Informed that he must answer to the
V ij charge of bigamy Rather than face
1 f I this charge the man told the officers
that he was not married to tho Muter
I girlWhen
When the Muier girl was ques
t tioned she told of a marriage cere
mony having been performed at
Evanston Vyo on the night of Feb
ruary 1C Lee did not attempt to
I deny that such an affair had taken
I place but stated that It was merely
a mock marriage arranged to appease
It i the wirls scruples
I The girl when seen by a Standard
reporter at the Ralph Hendersonresi
l dence on Jefferson avenue this morn
Ing did not hesitate to tell hnr story
She stated that she Is the daughter
of Robert Muller of Rock Springs
where her father is employed as fore
man In the Union Pacific roundhouse
I She has boon out of school Title more
j than a year having last attended
j school at a convent In Cheyenne Lat
i October she was employed at a Rock
Springs telephone exchange and be
came acquainted with Lee who was
playing a piano in one of the amuse
ment bouses of the city
We began going together said
Miss Maier rather demurely and I
did not know that he ever had been
married About two months later I
learned of his
former marriage or
enough about It to ask him if it was
not true that he had been married
He confessed that he had once been
married but claimed that he had se I
cured a divorce 1 was working one
evening a few days after this when a
long distance call came over the Hue
for him It came from Ogden and 1
could not help listening to the conver
sation that passed between Mr Lee
and the Ogden party Lee was told
r that his former wlfo had died
He told me about this when J saw I
him later on the same night and I
I admitted to him that I had heard the
conversation He seemed glad that
I I had heard it as he said that I
would now know for certain that he
was free It was quite a whllo after
I this that I learned that his former
wife was still living but I did not sus
pect that the message which I had in
tercepted had been a decoy which he
Intended I should hear Well if she
Isnt dead shos divorced he told me
and I let It go by trusting to his
I story that he had been the victim of
a joke
My parents were opposed to my
marrying Lee and I was not old
enough tov get married In Rock
Springs without their consent Last
February Lee proposed that we go to
Evanston and get mauled and then go
to Ogden and keep house 1 loved
Lee and absented to this plan On
the liUh of February we took a train
to Evanston It was after 9 oclock
in tho evening when we left Rock
Springs As soon as we arrived m
Evanston Lee took me to a room on 1
the second floor of a building not
more than two blocks from the de
pot He told me It was the office of

a Justice of the peace with whom he I
had arranged for a manlage cere
mony As I entered the room I saw a
young man sitting by a table read I
Ing from u book There were other
books and papers on the table and I
had not the slightest doubt that I was
In the office of a justice of the peace
The man turned to us and Lee in
troduced me as his intended bride
I lemomber In Intro lclng the man
to me he called him Justice Palmer
The man had us stand facing each I
other while he read from the book
I knew something about a wedding I
ceremony and the man asked me the
ordinary questions that are asked I
during such ceremonies Will you
trust honor and obey this man he I
asked and I answered yes Then I I
pronounce you man and wlfeand af
ter these final words Lee and the
man wrote something on a paper but
I did not have to sign my name to
any documents There were no
nesses to the marriage but I did
not know that this was necessary I
where a marriage was performed by
a Justice of the peace Lee said It I
was not I had never seen a mar
riage performed and there was noth t
ing suspicions about the ceremony to
me at that tlmot
The girl stated that Lee began to
mistreat her shortly after coming to
this city but had never been actual
ly brutal until a few weeks ago when
he came home drunk and threatened
to beat her with a club which he
raised over her head On a number
of occasions dining tho past month I
Lee has threatened to Kill her and
on Thursday drew a sharp knife from
his pocket and pressed the point of
It against her breast and swore that
he Intended to kill her When she
escaped from his clutches and at
tempted to telephone to the police
station Lee Jerked the receiver from
her hand and said he wouldcall up
the d police if she wanted
them He called the police to the
house and when he saw an officer
approaching fled out the back door
and escaped arrest Later a warrant
was sworn out by his pseudowife
and ho was arrested
Since coining to Ogden with the
Muler girl Lee has worked at a num
ber of places and has earned some
