Logs than a thousand nro camped across the rlvor out of tho seventeen hundred men that wore originally camped on tbo Southern Pacific company's sand lot tbore. Many of tho men who deserted before tho riots boarded trains and left tho city, according to special agents of the railroad. No one was seriously injured when tho police and special deputies routed tho mob on tho sand lots with clubs and flro hose A few scalp lacerations, brulAod bodies and broke u noses represents tho toll of tbo clash botween the "array" nnd tho authorities.

Tho final chapter In tho Iron workers' campaign to destroy the "opon shop" with dynamite and nitroglycerin was wrlUen today by tho supremo court in refusing to revlow Uio penitentiary sontcnoes Imposed 'upon Frank M. Ryan, prcsldont ol the IntoronUouol Association of Hrldge and Structural Iron Work-era, and twenty-three of the asao-claUon's mombers. 8enalor Kora, leading counsel for the iron workers at their trial at Indianapolis, statod after the bu-premo court's action that bo djd ndt contomplate appealing to tho president for a pardon tor the convicted mon. A pardon alone stands between them and tho penltenUary. Solicitor aonoral Davis probably will rqueost the court tomorrow to certify Its acUon to tho United States circuit court of nppoals at Chicago. Of Uio men who appealed to tho supreme court for a review, Ryan was given the longest senteuco, seven years. The lower oaurt held that loiters produced In evidence showod Ula management In destroying "open shop" structures. Mrs. J. R.

Roth physicians stato that there Is absolutoly no evidence showing Uiat deceased dlod from any such cause A thorough oxamlnaUon Internally and externally did not reveal any bruluos or-abraalons, Tho stomach was removed nnd will probably bo sent to Salt Lako City to determine whether or not doath was caused by poisoning. PRESIDENT IHV WANTS (KM DKMVKIW TOWKIIPUIj ADHRI-SS TO CROWDKI) HOUHI'm Thinks Time Is IUpe to Call ICIec- Uon For "Wet" or "Dry" Policy In PricoRellevcs Clonlnfc of Saloons Would Settle All tlio Social Uvlla. A. W. Horaloy, president of tlie Carbon Btako of 7.lon, took n fall out ot nearly everything that oanio within h!s oratorical reach at tho mooting of tho KducaUon association Monday night In tho Mothodltt church. Tho subject notlgnod tho president was, "What Stops Should He Taken to Free Price From Saloon Control?" Mr. Horaley took a rap not only at conditions prevailing at Price, out also elsowhero In tho county, "I never was so embarrassed," said the speakor, "as recently when I was called to Helper and at a houso three miles this aide of that town in Uio presence ot ladles I saw itho moat deplorable depravity I saw men on tho Sabbath day lying around in a drunken condition, iotri ot them even showing their person. "Conditions In Price may not be ot tho best, but In Iho language of tho street Holper has us 'sklnnod seven blocks.' However, I do not believe In decrying our mlsfortuno trom tho housetops, as lias been done. J'So much unfavorable notoriety has boon published from this town that when I go Into Salt Lake and people ask one whore I am from and I say 'Price,' they exclaim, 'Oh, for Lord's sake!'" i In his remarks tho speaker sta-'ted that he believed the time was , ripe tor an absolutely closed town j and Uiat It Uio people would circulate a petition for voting the town dry .next Juno ho could almost guar-nnteo that they would win, that there were onocgh fathers and mothers who would aid tho cause to , put Price In tho dry list once and tor all, The closing ot the saloons I bo believed was tho solution ot all j social evil problems. I Tho speaker raenUoned the coming of Chief ot Police U. F. a rant I to make a reform speech In Price jThe president stated that he thought Orant lnd a very good field to work If he used his efforts In Salt Lako. Mr. Horaloy thought that Salt Lko has many ot tho moil demoralizing resorts la tho United States and Uiat the ofilolal could well employ hia time in reforming Klon Instead of coming to Price, whero conditions nro by no means a bod At In the cspitnl of the stole I'rcildctit Horaley Isld particular itroM ctt cloning up the saloons and aatd that If bod buitlneea ronultcVl from the effects ot closing, he for one wm willing to take a pick nnd ahovel nnd go out to work that tho city might be freed from the opon laloon. Ho exhorted lite audlonco to do everything possible to promote statewide and nationwide prohibition. "Lot ua as a an Uon go out o tho saloon business" was Uio keynoto of his talk. John K Potter wna tho flrot ipeaker of the evening and ho delivered a splendid talk on tho co-ooeraUon ot parent to prevent tho uso ot clgareUea among boya. Ho preiontcd atartllng facts to show how tho youUia of Uio land wore injured by Uio cigarette habit Mr. PoUor was followed by Rev. Ferris, to whom had alio been assigned tho subject ot freeing Price from saloon control. Mr Ferris spoke along tho lines of paronis eliminating the Idea of ono tttondard for men and anothor for tho boys, Thla double standard is very eron-neoua, the speaker stated, and when father and son agreo on ono standard there will be lltUe room for on eatrangoment. Ono standard for Uio boy and Uio some for tho father was the thought expressed by Mr. Ferris. K. Uernardl, Uio popular Oardon Storo man, Is back from his visit to California. Ho was in the midst ot tho floods that inundated tho Los Angeles seotlon, Having heard so much about Mexico, while visiting In tho extreme southern part of tho state, Mr, Dernardl took a Jaunt over Into Uio southern republic. Nothing looked good to him there and he mode up his mind to return to "lb blggost little city on oarth" forthwith. Miss Rllen Mulronoy Is back Jrom i a trip to Salt Lake City, where she accompanied hor mother, Mrs. Anna Mulroney ot Ft. Dodge, Iowa, from this placo loot week, Mrs. Mulroney stopped off hero about ten dnjs ago for a abort visit wlUi her daughtor. She Is on her way for a vlflt in Montana. B. D. Johnstone, ono of the Prico old timers and who lias long been connected with Uio police survlco ot tho Consolidated Fuel company, left Monday to assumo bis now poslUon I with the Tennessee Iron & Railway company. There is a now laundry In Price It I located in tho stand formerly occupied by the Oak bar and Is operated by Chinese. Material Is on tho, ground tor tbo erection of Uio Sllvagni building at the MethodUt church corner. ADVOCATE "SUBSCRIBER" ; I ALSO STATESMiHE VIEWS I "Biggest Little City" Cannot Afford To Enter- I tain Measures For Drastic Reforms Exptr- H ience of Other Towns Should Be Taken Into Consideration. S Whenever a town or vllUgo he-i gins to show signs ot metropolitan llfo, nnd tho prowpects nppesr favorable for making nn attracUvo city out ot a country village, certain problems present themselves to tho peoplo for solution. Ono particular problom is now occupying the minds ot the people ot Price, nnd tho agltaUon has taken on auch proportions In connecUon therewith, that it demands exercise of tho best Judgment and careful attention of all those" who have tho wolfaro and progreM of our llUIe city at heart. There appears to be a conflict between those who assume to have tho moral well being of tho peoplo In mind and thoso who aro looking to tho material progress ot Uio city This same conflict has arisen sphlnxllko in evory city ot notable proportions in the United States as well as In all civilised naUons. A hundred years of strugglo In tbo history of our Urgent clUos, where every conceivable method lias been put Into operation, has failed to effect a final adjustment or soluUoti of tho liquor problom, or the entire ellmlnnUon of that clans usually I designated as tho undorworld. All !good people look upon tho accomplishment of these purposes as a do-slderatum to be highly prised Regardless of this noblo sentiment It la idlo for any person or set ot Individuals to assume Uiat these problems ot aocloty can be nottlod at ono sweep. Radical action and prematura InlUatho has been tho means of bringing ( about a vast amount of troublo and has blocked tho wheels of progress in tho development of many ot our municipalities Tho city ot Price la peculiarly located, tho environments being dissimilar to thoso of most ot our Utah towns. In tho various mining camps which form n clrclo around us there is a largo foreign population; many of Utelr number cannot speak English, and thoro Is hardly a possibility for reformers to Instill Into their minds tho moral philosophies that tho reformers do-dro to disseminate. Tho money paid to theso peoplo aggregates hundreds of thousands of dollars per month Soroo of Uiclr minds aro not keyed to a high moral tension, posiwalng as they do certain habits nnd prno-Uoes that lwo becomo a port ot Uielr nature. Tho samo can be said of all human bolnjgs, there being a dofference In degree. Ono has a vory shallow idea of mental nnd moral development who acts upon tho principle that with one Mist moral wave Uioy will bavo swept from their mlnda all but that which la pure and holy. It Is a fact weU established lu Uio inlcds of all men and women poa-eoHalng an ordinary amount of business sense that a portion ot tho money received by thoso employes i comes to Price, because it la throwing oft the swaddling clothes of n village, and Is Uio natural point tor tho distribution ot material wealth and a desirable placo In which to make a homo. Should Price lose the features that bring this money , constantly Into tbo city It Is a nat-' ural soquonco Uiat It will go elsewhere, and wo will dwindle back to tbo primitive condition in which wo existed a tew yoara ago. In such au event could it bo sold that the moral standard had been raised, and groatcr happiness been vouchsafed to the pooploT At Uio loot elootlon the peoplo voted their policy and tho prcoont Incumbents are mon ot moral character who are exorUng their best etfofts to maintain a well regulated oity and make condlUoni euch that It will have a healthy growth and Uiat prosperity can bo enjoyed by all. If they aro handicapped by over agltaUon nnd radicalism there Is no doubt but that progress will bo greatly retarded. There nro men and women In Prlco who bavo Invested every 4 - , dollar that they pomojts In p.wneHj H hero. They are people ot valo te H tho city nnd they aro people ef ged H moral character. Is It cunssMw H that certain agitators who do et H own a dollar's worth of real estt H and perhspa owo for tbe clothes m M their bocks ahall outline ths pM- H clea of this municipality? It Is tr M from tho Intention of the wcltr t H plead tor any conditio that wawM H compromise the moral coHUUen of H any individual, but the meUv 1 jH that whloh la in harmony with ,H many solid cktsens who have H pressed themselves, vis: That a H consistent, common sees eorse h H pursued in the xoguktUo et ah K- H quor traffic and the tttgprowlea ef( H vice.
