Probing Into His Methods Discloses
How He Deceived Candidates
I.RADSIIAW. Neh.. Oct 8. (Special.)
Many friends of C. A. Gilbert, recent dem
ocratic candidate for nomination of con
gremman. feel like relenting the action of
fl F. Uooil, who took advantage not oniy
of Mr. Gilbert, Imt alio Candidate Dulley.
Mulns and Miller. It seems that there i
a suit of gentlemen's egreement between
Ouod and one or two of the candidates,
and according to a statement of a well
known and prominent democrat, Good led
thn other candidatea on the democratic
ticket to Relieve that he would not make a
canvass, but would let the democrats of
this district exercise their rights and
pieferenre. The democrats not only In
York, but throughout the district, who
learned of this Implied agreement, sup
plied that Good would this time stay good.
It was the same old story of the many
political turns and schemes played by Good
In years past. Now a number of demo
crats have expressed themselves that Good
took undue advantage of the other candi
dates when Just a few days before the
primary he made a whirlwind still hunt
campaign for the nomination, thereby tak
ing advantage of the other candidates.
A prominent minister of York, speaking
of Judge Good's candidacy for Judge of the
district court In tills district, when he was
running against F. C. Tower of York, said:
"The members of the ministerial temper
ance organization of this district, whose
officers principally live at Yoi k, will not
again become tha, dupes of this man Good.
In that campaign Good managed to get the
tr.t'orsement of the Ministerial Temperance
rgue and at the same time he played fast
and loof-e with the saloonmen, and not
nly was endorsed by the saloon elemen',
out displayed In temperance localities the
letter of endoreinent from the Temperance
altnlaterial league, slgued by one or more
officers, ministers living here In York. The
temperance workers of York county have
become wis and when Mr. Good comes
around with that '1 am Good,' calling at
tention to' his record In calling the grand
jury at York which Investigated and found
Indictments against a few -who sold liquor,
the temperance people know ot the asso
ciation of Good with the liquor element"
In this district Good has been able in
each campaign for district Judge to work
both temperance and liquor elements, but
from now on the voters are wise, and while
he has been able to get the good will of
both elements, something at this election
will make Mr. Good understand that the
people may be fooled once or twice, but
no. 411 the time.
The republicans say that It Is not neces
sary to Investigate Good's wlltlcal methods
because so many of his former friends will
do It. f

OGDEN. ftah. Oct. 9. Special.) J. P.
O'Neill, an extensive contractor In concrete
work, after a trip through the Inter
mnuntaln region, says Ogden is doing more
building and making greater Industrial
progress than any city west of Omaha, with
the exception of Denver.
The financial stringency, following in the
restricting of loans by the large eastern
banks, has brought building operations to
a Mandstlll In several large cities which
were fostering a boom, but Ogden, quite
to the contrary. Ir erecting more busi
ness blocks and residences than at any
time since IS;). As an llustration of the
changes taking place here. Twenty-fifth
street, the entrance to the city, but not
the main buz. less district, seven new bus!
ness blocks under construction, one of
which Is to be the largest hotel In Ogden
with the exception of the Reed. At Ogden's
present rate of Increase, the city will have
a population of lOO.oon ten years hence.
Harnesses n Spring:.
Chnrles chmaltx, whose country home Is
eight mll.'s southwest of Ogden, at the base
of the wasatch mountains near the mouth
of theWeber canyou, that deep gorge
through which the Tnlon Pacific railroad
finds a natural parsway, is one of the
farmers In this region of natural water
power sites, who has harnessed a spring,
welling from the mountain side and has
made It perforin a multiplicity of duties.
Three years ago the farmer conceived the
Idea of having his own electric power and
light system, and though he knew nothing)
of volts or amperes, direct or alternating
currents, he set about to construct a pipe
line and power house and Install a water
wheen and a dynamo, and string wires
Mm feet to his farmhouse. At a result, he
has enjoyed all the electric conveniences
of a city home, and today his wife polishes
his shirts with an electric Iron and at night
the family burns Tungstens without with
out the buz of a meter, that erratic ma
chine which presents to city folks once a
month, bills of uncertain totals. More than
that, Mr. Schmaltz has freed his orchard
Srom moths by putting lncandesconts
among the trees and under each light a
pan of water, coated with a film of kero
sene. The bugs, attracted by the bright
lights at night, drop into the pand and die,
and the trees escape a pest which in other
orchards make wormy fruit.
This country electric plant Is a com
paratively Inexpensive, simple thing. From
a spring, flowing seven-tenths of a sec
ond foot of water, a 400-foot flume con
veys the water to a pipe 120 feet long, made
up of eight-Inch, six-Inch and three-inch
cast iron pipe which was bought second
hand for $15. The water has a fall of fifty
six feet In the 120 fleet, and through a one
and one-eighth inch nozzel it plays on a
two-foot Pelton wheel, which was pur
chased for $96. Connected with this wheel
Is a two-brush J65 dynamo that, making
1,850 revolutions per minute, generates cur
rent for twenty slxteen-candle power elec
tric lights. The water wheel also operates
a machine In which ten bushels of corn
are chopped In an hour, the dynamo and
chopping requiring five-horse power.
With an outlay of $15 for the pipe, ti6
for the dynamo, t for the Pelton and
tuO for the power house, and a small addi
tional s umfor the lumber flume and wir
ing, or a total less than $300, this farmer
has at his command at all times of the
year a power which lifts a big load from
his shoulders in feeding the stock, caring
for the orchard, sawing the wood, and his
family can appl ythe same force to run
ning the washer, propelling the sewing
machine, heating the irons and dispelling
the darkness of night.
Mr. Schmaltz says that the country home
where a little stream of water gurgles
from the rocks Js sadly unmindful of na
ture's murmurings calling for a higher
duty if the water power Is not con
verted Into electric energy and made to
serve a useful purpose.
This man Schmaltz Is not only a farmer
with a mechanical turn of mind, but he Is
somewhat of a financier. Twenty-four
years ago he worked on a barn In this
city. He accepted for his wages a horse
and traded the animal for 100 head of
ewes. Locating where at night he now
reads by electric light, he built a rock
house, contracted to buy port ore, of
grazing land for $740, and settled down to
tne hard grind of rearing a family of
eleven children and raising a band of
sheep. He endured four years of Cleve
landlsm, during which he sold wool at GH
cents a pound and was forced to retain
the wethers for lack of a market, but
gradually he won prosperity, and, as a
sequel to that struggle, he Is today rated
as a man of wealth. This year he dis
posed of IS. 000 worth of wool, $10,000 of
lambs and $4,000 of wethers, or a total of
$.2,009, and he erifers the nintsr with 8,000
heed or stock sneep.
There are very few places In this or any
other country where, with a beginning so
humble, even the most Industrious and
far seeing could have accomplished more
In a legitimate field ot endeavor, and
therefore Mr. Schmaltz' triumph should
prove an enticing lesson for others outside
this land of valleys and mountains where
possibilities are so vast.

The canneries of Ogden and vicinity will

With a small crop of tomatoes In the
east, the Utah product la expected to

Some tomato growers have harvested

These tomatoes are contracted for In the
fall of the year tor delivery the follow

makes tomato culture quite as Inviting as
that of beet raising. There is no hawking
or peddling and no waiting for a market
A year hence the farmer knows that, with
a good crop, he has but to make the de
liveries and draw his money from the
canneries at a stipulated prioe per ton and
no limit to the tonnage.
These canneries, which, beginning with
early cherries, handle all the fruits in
their season, and wind up the campaign
with canning pumpkins and apples, dis
tribute hundreds of thousands of dollars
to the growers and to the factory hands,
numbering hundreds of young people out
ot school at vacation time, and that
money, which ultimately comes from be

Martial Heeds and Feats Yester
day (niKlsdra Stirring
Omaha's second military tournament
ended shortly before S o'clock Saturday aft
ernoon, with everybody happy, even If
some of them were rather tired.
General Frederick Smith, commanding
the Department of the Missouri, Is author
ity for the statement that this tournament
was In many respects the greatest and
most successful ever given anywhere In the
department. Other army men assert that
the crowds and the enthusiasm compared
very favorably with the much more freely
advertised tournaments pulled off In Chi
cago and New York.
Something like $1,600 will be turned over
took part, and will be divided and con
too kpart, and will be divided and con
verted Into regimental or company funds,
as may best suit the views of the men.
The expense of erecting stands and taking
care of all the incidental cost that apper
tains to carrying out such a scheme of en
tertainment was quite heavy, and after tho
first day's exhibition It was found neces
sary to Incur more expense by building
200 feet onto the south grand stand. The
temporary officers' club wns also cared for
by the local committee while the encamp
ment was on.
o Accident Mars.
Not an accident of any serious character
occurred during the whole week of stren
uous work put in by the soldiery. When
the engineers were retreating from the field
to their camp late yesterday afternoon,
some timbers and boards slid off a tvagon
and one of the men was slightly hurt. Dur
ing the exciting evolutions of the battery,
while swinging on a swift run JU6t In front
of the east grand stand, one of the gun
carriages struck a hump and almost went
over, but quickiy righted when the horses
straightened out At another time Captain
Wright Smith's daredevils drove like fury
Just a trifle too far up to the boxes In
front of the east stand. They did not miss
the railing more than two feet at the press
box, where Captain Christie was standing,
and he had to stand tight against the rail
for a moment or two.
"It is things like that we always must
guard against at these tournaments," said
Captain Christie. "If the overflow was
out here in front of the boxes, as It was
Friday afternoon, distressing injuries
might have been inflicted. The publio may
consider our rules too strict, but they are
the result of experience, and the Incident
which has Just occurred proves the need
for the most absolute care to keep the
spectators In line behind the ratlings."
The spirit of the afternoon, so far as the
soldiery was concerned, was indicated by
Captain Smith when he rode up to Captain
Christie and said:
'I may overrun two or three minutes
today. My men are keyed up and going
strong, but we will not run much over
time." Artillerymen Race Like Mad.
And keyed up they certainly were, for
such a drill as the artillerymen put on Is
seldom seen, even by army officers. It was
go, and go hard, swing and swing fast;
gallop, and gallop as if the very devil were
after; take position almost on the dead
run, and g Into action like a hall storm
shelling a corn field.
Men and women watched with eager
eyes, bursting into involuntary cheers
every few seconds, and when the big guns
thundered amid the smoke a chorus ot
yells went up from a dosen of frlghteneu
babies that almost drowned the roar of
the cannon. The yells did not make thOBe
immediately about forget the guns crash
ing out on the field.
As on every other day when the troops
were going through their exhibitions, evo
lutions and exercises, "slaughter grim and
gory" was the only thing lacking to
make war an actuality before the swaying,
cheering thousands In the stands.
General Frederick Smith, always graci
ous and doing the handsome thing as a
matter of course, took King Ak-Sar-Ben
himself out on the reviewing line with
him as the troops marched past In the
grand review. Everett Buckingham, in
plain clothes, hod the physical port nec
essary to proper kingship and the eagle
front, but he wore no robes of state;
was as plain as an old shoe so far as
raiment would count. But he represented
the central Idea of this annual and now
famous fall festival of the realms of
Quivers, and President Pickens bore him
company, with Majors Burnham and De
vore, chief of staff and in charge of
camp headquarters, respectively.
Ambulance Race New Thriller.
Because of the condition of the ground.
as a result of the fast work done thereon
through several days by thousands of
men and horses, the Roman race on
Saturday's card had to be abandoned.
In place an ambulance race was put on
between three teams of Company A, hos
pital corps. This proved Interesting
enough to satisfy anybody. The wagons,
each drawn by four mules, started from
the north side of the parade ground,
raced over the south side, where the
litter bearers jumped down, climbed a
fence, attended to a wounded man,
placed him on tha litter, hoisted
him across the fence and loaded him Into
the wagon. Two of the mule teams could
travel like race horses, while one team
kid too slow for any particular use In
such a contest The time made oounted
fifty points, bandaging twenty-five points
and general performance the other twenty-five.
No time was token, but the of
ficers pronounced the race between the
first two teams very close.
Wall SeaJIna; Amnaea.
Two battalions of the Fourth Infantry
gave the shelter tent drill, with the call
to arms and wall scaling to lend excite
ment Much amusement won afforded the
spectators by ths varying degrees of
alacrity with which the men went over
the ten-foot wall. To some tbe climb
was evidently a picnic, while to others
it was as hard as climbing the golden
stairs will be to certain persons given
bad reputations In the Bible, except that
the soldiers "got there' in some way,
until the last man had been swung up
by the two comrades holding his guiu
They were not compelled to climb back.
"That would be too much like punlah

friaky young veteran will lead his cav

Une Hundred Thousand avr Drills.
Just how many people attended the
maneuvers on the four days they were
given is problematical, but that It tan to
at least 100.000 Is gitnerally conceded. If
all are counted who have been at the en
campment grounds morning, afternoon and
evening, another 2.',000 will have to be
addt d. This vast aggregation of eople
has been amused, entertained and In
structed In a manner not possible to any
oig hiiI nod body of men aide from the reg
ular army. They have seen how camp Is
made, both In shelter tents and otherwise;
how the men are fed and the character of
provender; how they live in their canvas
homes and bestow their belongings; how
the food Is prepared and how field bakeries
are set up and run; how the hospital corps
Is equipped nnd does Its Work; how the
field telegraph and the wireless are put
Into operation In a Jiffy and as quickly
taken apart; how the different branches
drill and train and with what cleverness
they put their training to good eccoum.
how the vhrlous arms of the service pet
form their functions on the field, and hov
modern engineering makes the crossing oi
streams a comparatively easy job, com
pared to what It used to be.
Further, the observant one, and they
are In the great majority, have had oc
casion to express the view that I'ncle Sam
Is getting a much higher type of man into
his fighting ranks. The personnel of ihe
various organizations seen here this year
will compare very favorably with any like
number of men in any walk of life; and
for general politeness and willingness to
answer questions and help the seekers after
lniorniatlon, the soldiers set an example
It would be well for more private citizens

braska was proved when the Saturday
crowds were more numerous and fully as
enthusiastic aa on the first day. And the
last horse and man participating in the
dress parade was going off the field be
fore the lingering audience left the stand
last evening. The multitudes never seemed
to tire of viewing the swift, panoramic
operations on the field. They have caught
toe fever, and wpen the next military
tournament comes to this city greater
grandstands will be required to hold the
people who will want to see und learn.
It has been a great tournament, exceed
ingly well munaged, from the general
standpoint of success; and Omaha, Ak-Sar-
Ben and everybody concerned may con
gratulate themselves this morning. They
have nothing to regret, and' much to be

Ruberoio Roofino is highly fire-resisting.
Another advantage of Rubiroid
Roofino is that it is also made in
permanent colors of RED and
