About this Umo Commissioner
Sharp again camo to tho rcscuo of
Paternoster by asking if ho (Pater
noster) was present at tho Umo tho
minutes wero sproad and when Pat
ornoster mado good for tho year's
HcenM. Tho lottor said ho was not.
QuosUonod as to tho hundred and
fifty dollars nllegod brtbo money
given to Jones, Paternoster explained
Uiat tho Jonow money was In tho
naturoof aloan and not to "square"
tho llconao matter. Parenthetically,
Paternoster Imparted the Informa
tion that tho Jones hundred aad
fifty dollars Is still coming to him.
This and live approaching dinner
hour brought an adjournment of the
board until 7:30 o'clock, when an
evening session was hold. In tho
meantlmo It had occurred to tho
commlnnionors that an opinion from
tho county attornoy might bo of use.
This was ordorod.
McNVhlanoy tilt on Opinion.
County Attorney McWhlnncy was
prepared at tho reconvening with a
written opinion, which declared
ngalnat tho Issuance of tho licenses.
Commissioner Sharp was not satis
fied with what McWhlnncy advised
and suggvstod ,that It ho referred to
somo othor attorney a disinterest
ed ono practically discrediting Mc
Whlunoy. This disinterested (?) one
was there ready for tho Job. Ham
!llfhn, avedthotnxpayors, a fee of
probably' flfip'To" sutentyfivo nor
lars by Intimating that the HcontwM
bo cither granted or not grnntod, In
dicating that he was roady to act.
Hamilton whispered with Sharp nnd
then moved that' tho Pnternostor li
cense bo granted as requotod..
Sharp voted with htm. Tho samo
action was taken with Dlumontl.
Thero Is an irregularity In tho bond
of Pnternoetor as submitted. It
was prepared by a surety company,
but drawn by Attorney Mcllroom of
Rait I.ako City, n relative by mar
rlago of Commlstdonor Sharp. ThU
ia being remedied, however, Dlu
montl was given "a day or so" to
get his bond hero from 'Aon.
Tilt J r Honesty Questioned,
During tho aftornoon tho matter
of publishing notice nnri f urnlahlng i
prlnUng and stationery supplies-
come up. A resoluUon was passed
leaving this to Auditor Piorson, but
at the evening mooting it was re
scinded and now tho work will be
let by bids. Enough will bo asked
for at ono Umo to last the several
county officials until the first of
Soptember, next. The chaage camo
over the commissioners during the
adjournment for dinner and was
InsUgated by two or three "bull
moochers in Prlco through an In
significant follonr who poses, as an
attorney. His representations were
that as tho original resoluUon stood
tho county was In grave danger of
being robbed or grafted. Whether
his 'nalnuaUons are directed agalmit
local publishers and printers or the
county clerk and ex-officlo auditor,
or both, Is not explained. In view
of this, It has boon suggested that
It might not be a bad idea to have
the butch Jf, Uio .grattir, coalman,
blacksmith and all ofnerAtimUsh,
Ing Uio county anyUiing, whatsoever,
make bids on whatever tho county
may bo in the market for from Uae
to Umo.
More Haloim Wanted.
During tho controversy over con
ditions at Sunnysldo Commissioner
Bharp gave it as his bcllof that thoro
ought to be fifteen saloons at Sun
nysldo, Instead of two as now, and
that Uio peoplo would bo bottor oft
at thla camp it such was tho condi
tion. Ho Inquired as to the price of
beer at Prlco v.tth Its ten saloons,
as to tho regulaUon ot tho samo
nnd many other matters which had
no bearing, so far as tho, persons
present could detormlno, upon Uio
matter undor consideration. Tho
mnltor of scarlet women at Sunny
side was not touched upon by Sharp,
although Attorney Ilrfafct citod con
ditions there wjwm the place was
"ivldo open." Sharp's general argu
ment was that tho voters of the
county had put Uio progressives in
power on a saloon platform, and ho
was ready, so far as ho Is Individu
ally concerns, to enforce it. If the
Utah Fuel company should not win
lis oaso to be filed In the district
court it Is mora than likely tholr
camps will be Incorporated Into
towns. T)io rovenuo would then bo
taken from tho county, togethor
with othor moneys. This amounts
to several Utousands of dollar an
nually. During his argumnot Uraf
fot oxplaiped that his corporatloss i
wnniod to bo friendly and in hr-'
mony wiUi Uio rest of the county, I
clUng Uiat Uiey did not opposo the,
