Saturday Attractions in Our
. . Beautiful Cloak Dept.
In such a beautiful and up-to-date Cloak
'Department as ours, where there la a
1 continual change of fashlonab'e sttlreba
, Ins ahown from day to day and from week
to week, there la always attractive things
to apeak about; for Instance, there's the
rate'. Id all coal shippers who brought in
their coal during the summer months. This
v rate was 60 cents a ton lower than the reg-
ular rate. Mr. Sharp endeavored to give
'his patrons the benefit of this low rata and
'advertised coal in Salt Lake City at $4.76
s ton, which was 60 cents less rtian the rate
charged by members of the Coal Dealers'
, association. . ' .
; Sharp testified that he was called to the
offices of the Oregon Short Line Railroad
company and was instructed' that unless
he withdrew his advertisements from the
' newspapers he would not be permitted to
handle Union Pacific coal. Sharp refused
tO- withdraw' the advertisements, and in
formed the officials of the railroads that
-tie Intencled'to give his customers an op
portunity to fill their bins at a reduction
In price corresponding to . the reduction
granted to the coal dealers.
After serving his notice of defiance, Mr.
Sharp test lied, shipments of coal to his
yard begin to be tied up and he could not
get coal when he ordered It. He continued
' to sell from the supply of 1,000 tons which
he had In his yards, but ultimately this
supply was exhausted Out of 110 carloads
ordered In one month he gut only nineteen
oars, sad finally he could get no coal at
. alt, and was forced out of business, being
obliged to close his yards, which had cos',
. Indlctmeata (or Perjary.
The two men Indicted for perjury proved
to be Theodore Schulte, the employe of an
Insurance "firm, and Thomas A. Moore, ab
stractor 'in the county recorder's office.
Both were arrested tonight and releaaed on
$2,600 ball. The charge of perjury. It la
believed, grows out of the belief of the
grand Jury that the men acted as land
locatere for the Utah Fuel company and
- refused to admit the fact when examined
' The other defendants have not been for
mally arrested, but have, It la given out,
arranged through ' the company attorney
to appear before United States Commis
sioner Baldwin tomorrow morning and give

WASHINGTON, Dec. 7. At t o'cloo kto-
daT the house adjourned until Monday,
having during the legislative session passed
several bills and received from the commit
tee on appropriations the legislative, execu
tive and judicial appropriations bill. That
bill was made a special order for Monday,
no day having been Axed for the vote on It.
During the three hours the houae was in
session it passed a bill which has the en
thusiast ie endorsement of labor as well as
manufacturers generally, repealing that
portion of the Wilson Interstate commerce
bill relating to convict made goods and per
mitting the several states to legislate for
themselves as to their competition with
"free. labor" made goods... A bill also was
passed creating a game preserve in the
Olympic mountains In Washington.
Bar for Slmpllaed Spelling:.
With an appropriation of over $31,000,000
and a provision barring "simplified spell
ing" In documents authorised by law or
ordered by congress, the legislative, ex
ecutive and judicial appropriation bill for
1907 Was reported to the houae by the "ap
propriations committee and was made a
special order for Monday. The amount
carried by the bill la $086,842 less than the
estimates. The appropriation for -the cur
rent fiscal year aggregated $30,168, 486. The
entire number of salaries carried In the
bill is 14,727, or '202 less than Included in
the estimates therefor and twenty-nlnu
more than provided fof the current year.
An Increase, from $1,100 to- $1,400 is made
In the allowance to 'members of the houae
for clerk hire" and the requirement that
members ' certify they have spent - this
amount Is omitted. The appropriation for
miscellaneous expenses for the senate is
cut from $100,000 to $50,000. The salary of
the secretary to the' speaker is Increased
from $3,000 to $4,000.
Convict Labor Bill Passed.
' Py .a . practically. . unanlinous.i vote, the
house today pawwd the bill limiting the
regulation of Interstate cpnunerce between
the several states In .articles manufactured
by convict labor or In any prison or re
formatory. The bill was Introduced by
Mr. Hunt fMo.), a practical atone masun.
Under the Wilson bill, which became a law
in lStH), convict labor-made goods may enter
into active competition with the goods
manufactured by "free" labor, and under
this federal law'a state could not pass a
law that would, prevent the shipping Into
the. state of prison-made goods of other
states. The law which was paaaed today
abrogates Interstate commerce law aa at
present applied to convict-made gooda,
thereby affording to the different atites and
territories the right to Inhibit the sh pplng
in of convict-mada gooda without the con
fines of any state' or territory.
.Mr. Hunt avked for its passage, not only
In the interest of free labor, but In the
Interest of the manufacturers. He said It
was an attempt to curb the criminal com
petitionof the penitentiary with ,the free
labor of the country.
"It is cruel," h said, "to ask the free
labor of thla country to maintain Its cltlxen
ship, its dignity and Its self-respect, if it
has to wait until the product of the atate
prison Is sold before the employer can
get a reasonable price for his honestly
manufactured product." (

Chairman Cooper of Wisconsin, under the
call of committees, called the attention of
the hosse to th erroneous positional of the
bill tn the untqn calendar, insisting that lis
proper place was on the house calendar.
Mr. Clark (Mo.), leading the minority, ob
jected to Its transfer, but Speaker Cannon
decided with Mr. Cooper that it properly

give It a different status than the union
The chairman of the committee on Insular
affairs attempted to have it called up for
consideration. Again Mr. Clark protested,
insisting that the houae had a right to have
notice of the possible consideration of the
meiLBure. The speaker sustained the protest
and the bill went over. The discussion dis
closed a determination of democrats to fight
the measure whenever possible.

the paper for examination of the objec

J. F. Stout also made complaint against

County Attorney Slabaugh protested
against the action of the attorneys for the
defense and declared It was done merely
for the purpose of prejudicing the rights
of the state- Ho pointed out the Jury Is
in confinement and no newspaper articles
relating to the case 'had been allowed to
reach their eyes. This being the case, he
said, there was nothing to prejudice the

the. coal dealers they had a remedy and
should not try to use tl to affect this
Heated words passed between Attorney
Stout and County Attorney Slabaugh when
the former rose to reply. He had said
only a few words when Judge Slabaugh
started to break In on him. Mr. Stout
protested against .being Interrupted.
VYour honor," he said, "he has been
doing that continually through this case.
If the court will turn mo loose on him I
will take care of myself, but I don't want
to do anything without the permission of
the court. I want to conduct myself in
an entirely proper manner In this caae."
Judge Sutton said the Jury had not been
allowed to see the newspaper articles In
question or sny other relating to the case.
"I don't wish to say at present whether
this reflects on ok- Interferes with the court
or not. It I should direct the county at
torney to file a complaint it might in
some way interfere with the progress of

cases during the year Information of the
character described haa been sent in ad

Barean of Corporations.
The bureau of corporations has contin
ued the work outlined in the annual re
ports of the commissioner. The results
thus far obtained fully justify the crea
tion of the bureau. Its Investigations
have furnished reliable Information re
garding the conduct and business of cor
porations engaged in interstate and for
eign commerce. The facta presented as to
the relation of such corporations to the
states and the Inability of the states to
effectually curb the Improper exercise of
corporate powera lead Inevitably to the
Conclusion that the federal government
must directly regulate and control such
Of the methods suggested for exercis
ing this power the federal franrhlse plan
seems the most feasible. This plan Is sim
ply to require the greater industrial cor
porations to obtain a license from the
federal government if they are to engage
In Interstate and foreign commerce. There
would be no Interference with the powers
of a state over the creation of corpora
tions nor their actions wholly within the
state. Under a llcenae the federal govern
ment should require, as a condition prece
dent to granting the license, a full dis
closure of all facts necessary to show the
ownership, properties, financial condition
and management of the corporation; fur
thermore, the corporation's records should
be open to proper inspection; annual re
ports, should be required; and, Anally, the
government should have the power to re
: voke the license and prevent the continua
tion or engaging in interatate and roreign
commerce in the event the corporation
falls In its obligations toward the govern
ment or Is convicted of violating federal
laws. Ordinarily the Imposition of tines
does but little to correct corporate abuses,
but . If the penalty be the denial of the
right to continue business a most effective
remedy Is provided. . '

The annual report of- toe director of the
eensus reveals s large number of statistical
reports Issued by the bureau on a variety
of-subjects -completed and published during
the year. Computations to obtain the to
tals for the manufacturing census of 1906
were completed In August; the state bulle
tins have been published, and many of the
special Industry bulletins will appear during
the fall and winter. This Important In
dustrial census covers the year 1H04. It
was confined to establishments conducted
under what Is known as the factory lys
tem, thus excluding the small shops en
gaged in neighborhood industries and hand
trades. For the period elapsed from the
census of 1900, about four and a half years,
the gross value of manufactured products
Increased 2S.7 per cent. The actual In
crease was almost as great as It was for
the entire preceding decade. The establish
ments included numbered 216,22, reporting
gross products valued at $14,902,147,087, and
an average of 6.feiO,07U wage earners, sala
ried ofllcials and clerks.
Measured by the value of products,
slaughtering and meat packing Is the most
important industry of the country; lumber
and sawmills and timber camps give em
ployment on the average to the greatest
number of wage earners, and the flour mill
industry shows the greatest Increase in the
value of products.
New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois and
Massachusetts, in the order named, are the
four leading manufacturing states, report
ing 39. per cent of all establishments, 46.8
per cent of all wage earners and contrib
uting 47.1 per cent of the total value of
There were 24,180 establishments report
ing a product of $lu0,0(O snd over, and
wlille they formed only 11.2 per cent of the
total number, they controlled 81.6 per cent
of the capital Invested, gave employment
to 71.6 per cent of the wage earners and
manufactured 79.8 per cent of the total
value of products. Of this number of es
tablishments, 1.88 reported products of
$l,OXAJ,ooo and over, employing a total of
1,879.1a) wage earners, or 25.2 per cent of
all wage earners enumerated, and contrib
uting a gross value of products of $5,627,-2-W,i:;0.
or 38 per cent of all.
The average number of wage-eamors
employed during the busiest months, Sep
tember, October and November, amounted
to &,;, 542, exceeding the average number
for the entire year by 155.221. Of the total
number of wage-earnere 77.6 per cent were
men, 19.5 per cent were women and 2.9 per
cent children. The average number of
children employed In manufactures de
creased from 161,278 In lima to 169.899 In
1916. A decrease In the employment of
children Is shown for twenty-five states und
territortea and an Increase in twentyt-slx.
The greatest number were employed In
the manufacture of cotton go

second in the employment of children In
