Eeports of the Officers and Elections-Interes- ting Speeches The Evening Session. Tho Utah societies of Christiau En-deavor met in convention yesterday afternoon at the First Congregational church. Tho attendance was large, delegates from all over the territory being present. Rev. J. B. Thrall pre-sided with C. II. Parsons as secretary. The floral decorations of the church were very appropriate, evergreens and potted plants lending a spring-lik- e brightness to tho scene, whilo in mono-gram over the choir was the society's motto, "For Christ and the Church." Tho convention was opened with religious exercises, after which the sec-retary read tho reports of tho secretary and tho treasurer. Donations during the past year were $01, expenditures $70.50, deficit $0.50, collections last Sunday '0, ou hand $10.50.

Green, Logan, and Frank Baruett, Ogden, O. H. Parsons, Jalt Lake, secretary and treasurer; Rev. Josiah McLean, Ogden; Mrs. Shirley, Logan; Miss Margaret A. Brown,' Park City,, and Rev. K. N. Murphy, Mount Pleasant, district sec-retaries; Frank Pierce, Salt Lake; A. J. Baily, Ogden, and Rev. J. A. L. Smith, Springvillc, biennial directors; E. A.

The reports of tho First Congrega-tional, the Methodist, tho Second Con-gregational, tho First Presbyterian, the Spriugville,' the Westminster church, the Salt Lake Baptist church, the Burlington school, the Ogden Baptists, tho Ogden First Con-gregational church, tho Ogden New West academy, the Coalville, tho Mount Pleasant and the Evauslou socie-ties showed a large increase of mem-bership aud gratifying work accom-plished, Rev. (;Mr. Hough said that Payson would soon have a society, and Secretary Pardons announced that a number of teachers throughout tho ter-ritory had written- - him that societies would be. formed in their vicinities. It was ascertained that one-thir- d of the delegates present were from out of town. " ADDUESSE3. Under the five minuto rule a number of addresses 'were" made. Rev.' J. E. Hurbut spoke on tho importance and power of organization, and Rev. Dr. Clarke of Boston, founder of tho soci-ety, said that hp had looked forward to this visit to the west with much pleas-urable anticipation, and was rejoiced at the devotion shown by young people. Rev. W. A. Hough, Payson, and Rev. B. T. Vincent, Greeley, Colorado, made appropriate retn'arks, and were followed by lay members, Mrs. Bailey, Ogden, and Mrs. Eddy, each speakiug the al-lotted time. CHILDREN'S MEETING. Tho convention then resolved itself into a children's meeting, and the aucli-euc- e having received tho addition of several schools, was crowded. Miss Turner of Hammond Hall entertained the little ones with object lessons illus-trated with crayon on the blackboard, and told an interesting story of a little girl who dropped her silk mitts in the contribution box becauso sho wanted to help tho cause, aud when asked why sho did this said that she thought spelt mitts. After a short ad-dress by Dr. Clarke that gentleman was presented with a basket of flowers by a littlo girl, and thou the next half hour was givoi up to asking tho doctor ques-tions about the scope, aim aud purpose of the society. IN THE EVKNIXG the meeting was held in the First Methodist church, which was filled, many present being from abroad. Pro-fessor Radcliffo was the organist for tho occasion and II. II. Pcabody, of the Baptist church, led the choir. Re-ligious exercises wero followed by a short add ress from Mr. Thrall, who an-nounced that Rev. Dr. Vincent would talk to all city Sunday school workers uext Friday evening in the Methodist church; and he also invited the local temperance workers to meet Mrs. Bailey of Ogden this afternoon at 3 o'clock in the Congregational church. Mr. Thrall then devoted ten minutes to a welcoming speech to Dr. Clarke, who replied to Mr. Thrall at considerable length. After speaking of the good work accomplished by the so-ciety, Dr. Clarko said: "It is Idle to talk about breaking off bad habits unless you cau replace them with good habits. The outvoine of every union meeting should be that the young people return to their churches" more eager and zealous than ever to push strongly the effort along in church lines. Put the name aud principles of your society together and stand by them. Christ for the world aud the world for Christ. One of these days it may be America for Christ and Christ for Amer-ica; iind may the Christian Endeavor societies bo an factor iu bringing about this glorious consumma-tion." On motion of Rev. J. T. Hurlbttt, Rev. Dr. Clarke was instructed to con-vey the best wishes of the Utah socie-ties to tho California convention. The convention then passed aresolutiou of thauks to tho railroads for courtesies extended, after which a half liour con-secration meeting was hold, for w hich about half the audience remained. Dr. Clarke took the 10:30 p. in. traiu last uight for California, .... , IT IS PLATED Oil. An Attempt to Bevlve the "Gentleman' AMoclatlon" Failure. Chicago, April 16. Special. The committee appointed by the railroad presidents recently to report on a form of agreement,held"anothor meeting yes-terday, but no business was transacted as the Missouri Pacific, the Union Pa-cific, the Wisconsin Central and the Fort Scott & Memphis were not represented. The lines named even failed to seud re-plies to the request for an opinion ou a skeleton form of agreement that had beeu submitted to them. This is prob-ably the end of the movement to the Interstate Commerce Rail-way association, as the Missouri Pacific Is evidently antagonistic to the move-ment and the other roads w ill not enter into an agreement to which the Mis-souri Pacific is not a party. a good selection. There are lots of prizes and you must choose them in-stead of the blauks. I hail six priy.es. Now I could draw a prize every time because I have had experience. Men often admire women for their intellect-ual culture, skill in art, or taste in per-sonal appearance, but they do not loyo women because they possess their dis-tinguishing qualities. Business men want wives who can take care of tho household. The best husbands want wives who are intelligent, aflec-tionat-and above all, practical. A practical wife doesn't want to carry the purse ami latch key and wear the trousers besides. Ou the contrary, she will take a pride in her home, and is ready to share her husband's misfor-tunes as readily as his good luck. Such a wife is respected. People don't ask of her if she speaks Sanscrit or plavs the piano. She doesn't have to be pretty. That Is necessary with dudos but not with real men or women." Marriage Not a Failure. From the Chicago Tribune. Among the arrivals at the Grand Pacific last evening was a mau who at-tracted some attention becauso of his striking personal appearance. He had a long face, bright eyes and lung brown hair slightly s(riukled with silver. He is Andrew Smith of Salt Lake City, one of tho Mormon elders who weut to prison under the Kdnuuids act. He had eight wives. A reporter asked him if marriage was a failure. Instead of being knocked down and out of the dragged hotel, as was half expected, the interviewer was invited to take a chair and listen. "No." said Mr. Smith emphatically, "marriage is uot a failure if you make The course of tho Deseret News is malicious and spiteful-me- an and under-handed. Its conduct is not approved by a large portion of tho intelligent and progressive Mormous of Salt Lake, who wish to see the city grow and prosper. Tlie Dosorct News is simply a and the loss atten-tion that is paiil to it tho better. Wo regret that we havo said so much about tho contemptible sheet, but we wish to let the new comers know that there is a selfish and wicked motive behind the attempt of the News 1(1 obstruct the progress of Salt Lake. However, it will not succeed in. Us devilish object, for tho enterprising Gentiles and the progressive Mormons, who are reaping a harvest from tho boom, propose to spend thousands of dollars in advertis-ing Salt Lako ami keeping the outside world posted on tho advantages, attrac-tions and resources of the city and vi-cinity. With the largo amount of new cap-ital invested here, the millions of dol-lars tj bo spent in magnificent business buildings and dwellings, the streets to 1m paved and sewered, and other pub-lic improvements. Salt Lake's transfor-mation from a villago iuto a metropoli-tan city is an assured fact. A MAMCIOL'S ATTACK ON 8AIT L.IKE. There is no city in this country that lias brighter prospects than Salt Lake. She is the metropolis of one of tho rich-les- t agricultural valleys in tho world. 'The mountains ou every side are full of gold and silver, aud have not yet begun to bo fairly prospected and developed. Coal, marble, granite and building "stone of every description are withiu easy reach. We havo iron and salt in abuudauco. No region on tho face of the earth has so many resources and in ' , such abundant quantity as tho Salt Lake valley. In tho heart of this won-derfully rich valley lies tho beautiful town of Salt Lako. It, is an overgrown rvillage of 50,000 people, and is soon to fbe transformed into a handsome city, with all modern improvements. ' Tho transformation will bring wealth nud comfort to thousands of people, tind; yet there aro in this community a lot of moss-bac- I'roakers who are doing everything in their power to obstruct tho advance of and refinement. They seo 5n the transformation their certain rel-egation to tho shade, from whence they will tiever emerge. They feel that they tire soon to lose their Influence and power among a certain class, who are bound sooner or later to swing into ilino with tho element of cprogrcss and Smprovement. Tho chief representative of these iiuossback croakers is an alleged news-fpape- r called tho Deseret News. It the obstruction element of tho Mormons. It docs nut represent the liberal and progressive portion of that people. Its main object is to impress upon outsiders that Salt Lako is a fail-ure, and that any man coming here to invest in property or go into business of any kind is simply an idiot. The Deseret News does not want now ,pcople to lorale in this city because it well knows that with tho increase of a Liberal population its days of power and profit are numbered. On Monday it published an article that was intended lo give the real estate boom, the hotels, immigration, investment, improve inenfs, and business generally a black eye. The object was to have it po abroad and thus discour-age tho influx' of new people from the eastern states. No meaner or more underhanded article could havo been published by an Ogden paper, and we predict that tho article in ques-tion will be reproduced with glaring headlines iu the newspapers of Ogden. This vicious attack upon the interests of Salt Lake was followed up last evening by the publication of a private letter written by Secretary Gil lespie, of of commerce, lo various business men impressing upon them the ' importance of joining the chamber and assisting iu every possible way to promote the material interests of Salt Lake. Tho letter was in no way intended for publication, aud any nevvs-- . paper loyal to Salt Lake would not hav e jmblisbed it, ...... . . i J. ll - We Have the Oldest Real Estate ) sl .

The stockholders of the Planters House com-pany met yesterday to consider the best disposition to mako of the old ho-te- l. Some favored a scheme to erect a uew hotel on tho site; others want to put up ati office building, while others advocated the sale of tho property to the highest bidder. As there was such a wide difference of opinion between the stockholders as to what should be done with tho property, another meet-ing will have to be held before defiuite action can be taken. .

Secretary Gillespie, of the chamber if commerce, worded his private letter to certain business men in a rather manner. It is to be regretted that the Herald published it, thus fol-lowing in tho footsteps of tho News. The letter was not intended for publi-cation, aud an undue advantage has been taken of it. Perhaps its publica-tion was intended more as a stab ut Mr. Gillespie than at Salt Lake, Itaty'i mg Exposition. Rome, April 16. -P-reparations are being made to render , the opening of the exposition of local industries next month o notable affair. There will be at the same time. a national riile con-test and a race open to the horses of all countries, at which the grand prize of Romo, amounting to 100,000 francs, will be open to contest for the first time. In connection with the opening, steps are being taken to arrange for a series of fetes which promise to be of great in-terest- The associated press of Italy is desirous of taking a distinguished part in these fetes. Through its president aud secretary it has addressed an invi-tation to the members of tho press of tho United States to visit Rome in May and share in the festivities. It offers to tho representatives of the American press who may bo able to accept the invitation all the facilities possible to enable them to see ami understand whatever Rome has of interest to jour-nalists. It is hoped that many Ameri-can newspaper men may avail them-selves of this opportunity to visit Rome as the guests of tho Italian Associated Press. t A iOO WOKU FOB HALT LAKE. Government Director Spalding's re-port on tho affairs of tho Union Pacific railroad is an important and interesting document. It is very complete and exhaustive, and will be carefully read by people all over the country, and especially by the people of the region west of iho Missouri river. Mr. Spal-ding commends in the highest terms the present management of tho road, shows its condition as to finances and operations, gives a concise but complete history of the system, ami speaks at some lcugth upon what the railroad lias done towards the development of tho Great West. Mr. Spalding has very properly made a careful study of the country aud tho cities tributary to tho great transcontinental railway. AfLer dwelling at some length upon the merits of Omaha and Denver, he very truly says that Salt Lake City is another of the phenomena of the west, aud that "tho recent municipal election at that point gives tho strongest evidence that could be desired of tho decided drift of immigration 1n. that direction." Mr. Spalding says further: The result of the overthrow of the Mormon clement will be the rapid growl h In population and wealth, not only of Salt Luke City, but the entire territory of Utah, u territory as rich iu mineral and agricultural resources us any that has yet attracted the people of tho older slates. From Its lnaguilluent and eligible location, the fertility of the Valley of which It. ts tho distributing 'point, and . its almost midway position lietween the two oceans, there Is no question. In my mind, but that Salt Lake city Is, hound to thrive and become a very important center. Utah in tlieeourse of a few years will lie admitted iuto the union, She already claims, by reason of lier growth, the attention of congress with that end In vlow, Tho Union PaciHc Hallway com-pany will derive incalculable henellt from the growth of this new state, and tho construction of branches which will penetrate lier rich val-leys and give access to her rich mines will doubtless become an Imperative necessity In the near future. " Tliis is indeed high praise, but it is not by any means' undeserved. It comes from a man who has thoroughly investigated all the matters npou which ho has reported, and it will havo its weight and Influence throughout tho country. TllK attempt to slop the privilege of Addressing the city council was very properly Hel down upon by the majority of that body. Councilmon are tho rep-resentatives of the people, aud to arbi-trarily shut off any person from ad-dressing tho council Upon any impor-tant, matter in which he may bo interested would bo acting contrary to the usual custom iu nearly all munici-pal legislative bodies. Of course this is a privilege, but as a rule it ought to be granted. TiiKRK' are several candidates for Postmaster Barrett's oflicial shoes. Among tho number is Mr. Benton, who is bringing to bear on the matter some strong influence, He is recommended by his brother-in-law- , Congressman Dorsoy, of Nebraska, nud others of that state It has been intimated to Mr. BaiTctt, who has eighteen months yet to servo, that his resignation would be accepted at auy time. It remains to be seen whothcr Mr. Barrett will take the hint. It is not usual for postmasters or other federal officials to resign. Left the Country, Elukkton, Ga., April 10. Tho Hon. Fhil. W. Davis, ono of the most noted lawyers aud politicians in this section, took flight last night never to return. Yesterday J. L. Harper, editor of the Gazette, appeared iu the public square, horsewhip iu hand;. Soon Colonel Da-vis was seen walking across the square. Harper met him with tho words, 'Ton infernal scoundrel," and vigorously ap-plied 'the whip over his head, face aud shoulders. But littlo resistance was offered by the colonel. The cause of the trouble is said to bo that Mr. Davis has made improper advances to a lady member of Mr. Harper's family. Later in the day a meeting of citizens was called, at which a resolution was adopted asking Mr. Davis to resign his seat in tho legislature from Elbert county, aud to leave the town and county within six hours, never to re-turn. ot u si Hiatus. Notes from (iardon City ami Urlglilon. The Pavilion station has the painting just iinislied. A ticket olllco for tho Utah Nevada on the lower floor, and a land olllco for Garden City on the second floor, will ut ouce be opened up. The metropolitan fashion of double rows of shade trees, with a stream of sparkling water upon either side of tho street, has been more than successfully initiated ou Main street, both in quan-tity and quality of water and number of trees. There arc miles and miles of both, and no hesitation ou account of cxpeuse on the part of properly owners. Something very much out' of the or-dinary occurred in tho sinking of an artesian well tho past week by .Shear-men & Partridge on plat B of Garden City, and raises tho question of chan-nels and currents iu tho sand strata containing the water, as against tho theory of even distribution aud flow, maintained by Major Powell, as the characteristic of tho porous gravel sheets carrying tho water supply in ar-tesian belts. Whilo this well reaches substantially tho saino level as many others eloso by, nnd Hows the same quality of puro water, tho pressure is peculiar aud ten times greater than in any of the others, forcing a Jlow of about 120 gallons per minute from a two-inc- pipe, and must necessarily penetrate a subterranean current. Ed. Senior has an idea that his own town must front in the same iilo with any other city in tho west, and is there-fore building him an inn, not so com-modious, of course, as the Hotel Ontario or tho East Side hotel, but abundantly big enough for tho comfortable lodging of seventy-liv- o guests, and a dining room 24x10 feet. This building is to be completed within the uext thirty days, aud tho pupils of the Garden City school havo secured the privilege of dedicating it with an evening rhetorical entertaiu-meut- . J. N. Blumberg, late of Iowa, has his haudsomo two-stor- eottago, costing about $2500, just at tho point of com-pletion, and will immediately move in. The Lutheran people have commenced work on a handsome church edifice that will cost when complete about $7000. The Union Pacific at Tacoina. Tacoma, Wash., April 10. The Union Pacific was guaranteed all the land necessary for terminal facitities here this evening at a meeting of weal-thy citizens. The guarantee includes 700 feet of deep water front, strip of land half a mile long and 100 feet wide, and aright of way, and, in addition, sufficient land for depot and yard pur-poses. Tho property lies on the tide flats, with the most advantageous loca-tion in front of the adjoining city, and is valued, with its various advantages, at not less than $1,000,000. The guar-antee was addressed to W. H. Holcomb, vice president of tho Union Pacific, and is in the hands of Chief Engineer V. G. Bogue of that road, to be forwarded to him. ALTOiKTHKK TOO SLOW. There is a great deal of complaint re-garding tho slowness of action ou tho part of tho eily council concerning pub-li- e improvements. This is true as to tho abatement of the dust nuisance Although ten sprinkling carts havo been ordered, It is not likely that they will reach hero before Juno or July. Meantime something should be done to lay tho dust. There is plenty of water, and it ought to be utilized in some way for sprinkling purposes. " Another matter that ought to be pushed is street paving. Although it is claimed that nothing can bo done until the new law goes into effect, which will be several weeks honce, all the prelimi-nary work cau bo done iu the meantime, so that a good start can bo made all aloug tho lino when tho proper time comes. Street grades must be estab-lished, paving districts must bo created, material selected, proposals for grad-ing, paving and curbing advertised for, aud so on. All this can and should bo dono within the next four weeks. Still another thing about which there is much complaint on the part of citi-zens who want to soo. .Salt Lake push ahead, is tho delay iu granting fran-chises to street railway companies who aro anxious to begin work and stand ready to spend a great deal of money and give employment to a large number of men. The dilly-dall- y action of tho council in these aud other matters is causing a great deal of indignat ion nnd criticism. Tho people aro getting impatient, and want to see the couucil "get a move on itself." There is considerable talk about calling a mass meeting of prop-erly owners and cilizeus generally to discuss tho subject of public improve-ments and the tardy action of the council. Protection at Sea. London, April 16. The incidents connected with the disabling of the City of Paris and the conduct of the Adriatic have renewed tho question of the law relating to giving assistance to vessels iu distress. - The recent decision of t he Lords af-firmed the law that a vessel is not justi-fied in deviating from her course for the purposo of saving property, and may do so only when it is a direct ques tiou of saving life. A bill will now bo proposed which shall render it imperative to any steam-er to give assistance to a distressed vessel, even if life is not iu immediato peril. . , The Marrying Age, Chicago Herald.
