Thomas Marring and Joseph Raddi-ga- n were arraigned in police court this morning, each charged with petty lar-ceny and were fined, on conviction, in the sura of $00. In default of this amount tLey were committed to jail. The offense on which they were convicted was committed this morning, when . tlio pair seized ou a gripsack belonging to Dan-iel II. Wells, jr.. the grip containing a pair of pants, razor and a comb ami brush. These were returned to the Leadville house, where they were sub-sequently recovered by Officer Roberts, who bagged - his birds. The men both claim- - to bo ma-son- s and sav they . were drink-ing at the time they very foolishly re-sorted to larceny. The excuse, how-ever, was not .sufficient trt satisfy the law,' and they went to the bastile. THE MINING EXCHANGE. A Unll Pay With But Few Small Transac- - tlont. The day on 'change was one of dense dullness. But four properties were dealt in and these in a tame and desul-tory way, the total transfers being con-fined to 2400 shares. The apathetic condition of affairs, however, indicates no lack of interest, but on the contrary the absence of a number of the most animated plungers without whose pres-ence the cauhlron declines to boil. Apex led the list with a transfer of 1500 shares at 2b", buyer sixty days, and was followed by a cash deal in 500 shares of Crescent at 28 cents. Archer was strotig at $3.85 at which fig-ure iiOO shares were unloaded after, which it settled back to $5.80. One hundred shares of Alliance went at $3.50, the remainder of the list going through in a featureless way. When Utah Oil was reached 16 cents was bid and thirty asked. It had been noised about the pit that some . important re-sults had been obtained in tho last s but the bull failed to take hold. It w as giv en out contidentially that Judge Wain pier was ready to gobble any block that stalked from its moorings, but tho blocks did Hot stalk; Among others who. have visited the board is Tabor, who ex-pressed himself as charmed with the character of slocks that appear on iis list. True, they are, or tho general average represents n higher brand than is posted on the exchange at Denver. There tho 'fanciest" stock is Matchless, the majority of which is owned by tho himself, The latest bid on this was $2.25 without any to offer itself, at that figure. There is no such thing in fact as an Ontario or Daly or ( Vnleu-nial-Kure-on the Denver board, the list at that place embracing eighteen stocks that are based on claims, or prospects, ami twenty that range from .05 te the, notch that is readied by tho Matchless. Here there are bnt eight of the total list of twenty-on- o the stock of which is not issued upon productivolevels, a contrast that readily appealed to so distinguished a mining man as the ex-se-alor who originally purcnaseu the Matchless that has paid him over a million of dollars in dividends for $73,000. The return of the plungers will pro-duce a different spectacle on the boards and until that time the pit will continue tame.

LOOKING jOR US. Excursions Prom All Points in the United States Start Out Today for Salt Lake. BRINGING MONEY WITH THEM. The Activity in E salty Transactions -P-eculiarities of the Morning Mail Pouch Notes and Personals, Tho latter part of the week will see Salt Lake filled up with visitors from the east and the real estate men are making every preparation to' the very biggest kind of a business. Today tho first of the harvest excursions left from every point in the United States all bound for Salt Lake City. This ex-cursion will bring thousands of people; to this city. The greater part of these oxcursionistsiie homo seekers. They arc not iimi without means. They are for the most part men who are desirous of making a change of location and finding a spot that meets their fancy; will bring their household goods and make it their abiding place,, Transactions in Jlcnlty. The transactions in realty during tho past month show a remarkable activity for that season. The sales made were worthy of special comment. They show the appreciation of business prop-erty. Very many of the purchases in fact the great majority of them were made with a view to immediate im-provement. The call meeting of the exchange this morning was rather quiet. Tho real estato men were out hustling and too busy to be present . Harvey Hardy was, however, on hand and happy. C. H. Schreiner was also around and reported a rush of customers. Ho had made a good salo yesterday and expected to make another today. To Take In the fair. Secretary (iillespie of the chamber of commerce this morning received a let-ter from a man in Nebraska city. Neb., who says that a party of ten will leave that city for Salt Lake in time to take in tho territorial fair. They all have money and are coining to Utah with the intention of locating here. They expect to engage in various pursuits. The writer of the letter inquires spe-cially after the outlook for market gar-dening and the culture of small fruits, although ho says that he has not yet delinitely decided as to what business he will engage in. A (Carriage Factory, A man iu an Illinois town writes the chamber of commerce in regard to mov-ing a carriage factory to this city. He has a large plant and wants a new loca-tion. If the outlook here is favorable he will move. here. IIo asks for no bouus. !. The Mall Pouch. Among othef, letters received at the real estate exchaugo and chamber of commerce were the following: A mail in lun Cross, Kau., asks about Utah potatoes.. A Prospect, (.)., man wants general information about farm lands. A Missouri party is thinking of start-ing a steam laundry here. A man at Unix's Mills, JT. Y., asks for special information as to why Salt Lake City is a good place for a man to lo-cate. A Nevada, Mo., man wants informa-tion about the city. An Orangebiirg, Ivy., man seems to be much impressed with Salt Lake City and wants more information. i A New Addition. A now addition was this morning listed on the real estate exchange. It is called tho Dellair addition and is owned by Beyle & Co. Jt is situated in section ill), township 1 north, 1 west. I rum the Kew Kng-lan- States. A peculiarity noted about the mail received at ho real estate exchange is that about half the inquiries come from the New England States. Of live in-quiries received this morning, three were from that section of the country, two from Massachusetts' and one froin Vermont. The census returns prove that there has been a considerable ex-odus from those states and these inquiries seem to prove that it is to continue and that not a few of the peo-ple will find their way to Utah. Iteal JCtdate NoteA. A meeting of the Popperlon Place syndicate will be held iu this city on the tilth inst. The Midland Investment company yesterday sold nine lots iu the Clemlale addition to E. A.

The grand jury reported for duty this morning at leu o'clock, the roster show-ing .I. C. Conklin, Frank Richardson, Robert Kimball, James Lawrence, C N. Dnlberg, David Hutchinson, Corne-lius Hunt, Brig Shurt lilT, J. W. Ne.T, J.J.Snell, C.H.Collins, J. R. Cusb-hg- , Riley Groves and Henry fSiegel. They at once retired under tho Mr. Conklin and their de-liberations that promise some import-ant results, were . inaugura-ted. A well known officer is responsible for the observation that there will be a general shaking up of the cohabs whom, it is contended, arc more numerous than the average man can appreciate. As usual with the ad-vent of a grand jury, there has been a scampering in all directions of the of-fenders, the ticket, punchers reporting increased passenger traflic in tho direc-tion of rural districts, where tiie voy-ager is tolerably safe from the ollicial document. The charges that were ad-ministered by Judge Zatie are very em-phatic in their reference to tho native offense, aud a largo hatch of indict-menl- s is assured. Concerning this, the court instructed the automata as fol-lows: There m e Rome crimes which seen) to bo a little more common than others. Some lire practiced 111 secret, and it will be your duly to rigidly investigate. The fact that a lare por thin of the people committing these crimes think it Is right to pr.icticn polygamy results in fornication aud adultery. The government of the United Watch has seen tit to declare that a man with utie wife w ho marries another is guilty of adultery or polygamy. This crime is a Wow to civilisation ana reprehensible iu the extreme, ami should lie stamped out. Your duty as far as lli law males it within the scope of your authorit y. In to use vigilance in conducting your Investigation. There is :omc complaint that, the inilueiitlal. wealthy and more Intelligent who practice tills crlti e do so unmolested, and while the weak and Ignorant urn prosecuted, I want, you to leave no room for sueii a charge In the future. Your duty Is to prosecute all, no matter who they may be, anil 1 want this gr.unt Jury to leave no room for such a suspicion In the future. There are other crimen defined In the statutes which you will be called upon to investigate, viz: murder, arson, burglary, and others. You should tie careful 1o iuvcstiiralc all such charges cire-full-as the welfare anil happiness of moiety depend upon your action. iM'emise ttmt w elfare aud happiness demands that I lie otlt ndcrs be punished. That is the way society is protected and life, liberty and property are defended. Your action In all cases should not be actuated by hatred, malice, or toward the person prosecuted. Neither should yotl ieave any person unlndlctcd through fear, favor or affection. Do your duty according to your oath and let the consequences take care of them-selves. That their labors may be expedited aud that the autumnal cleaning up may be an effective one the deputy marshals are waging an energetic, crusade through the outside districts where the recalci-trant witness abounds and where there is evidence enough, if properly direct-ed, to increase the cohal) rosier at the penitentiary at least ten per cunt.

P. SWITCHMEN'S TROUBLES. Discontent Among that Road's Employes at Denver Other Rumblings' Prom tde Rail, General Trallic Manager Mellen of the Union Pacific will leave for tho east this evening. His visit here, ho said, had no special significance. . Hoi ex-pressed himsely well pleased with tho growth of local business but was not in a humor to be interviewed. Mr. Mellen has been in Oregon and Seattle for the past two weeks and, al-though ho himself would not discuss the nature of his business th ere, it is gen-erally whispered in railway circles that it h ad some connection with the talked of combine between the Union Pacilic and Great Northern in the construction of a line from Portland to Seal tie. The prospects of this combine be-come more probable every day. In re-gard to it the Seattle says: There is great probability that the Union Pacific, and Great Northern will join in the construction of a line from Seattle to Portland. At present both companies are at work in dead earnest oil the construction 6f separate lilies. The Union Pacilic is at work at points all along the line between tho Columbia river and Olympia. Tho Great North-ern has nearly completed its surveys and secured its right of way. Vet they realize that three roads, including the Northern Pacilic, are not likely to find a paying business in the section between Olympia and Portland for several years to come. Both the Union l'acific and Great Northern are determined to light the Northern Pacilic in its own territory, but they have no motive for fighting each other, and they could bring the. Northern l'acific to terms quite as effectually and with less by uniting than by each building an independent linn. It is therefore probable that arrangements will be made by which tho Union Pacific will build one half the line between Seattlo and Portland and the Great Northern, each having a perpetual traflic arrange-ment upon the line of the other. They would not unite in the con-struction of the whole lino through the medium of a company in which each subscribed half the stock, as there would be danger of a "freeze out" whenever a dispute should occur. The Hallway Snitching Association. The railway switching association, which was dissolved on account of the switchmen's strike, will bo .reorganized at Chicago, on Monday. The return to tho old system resulted in the same vex-atious delays, trains often being obliged to wait for hours until the one ahead had completed its work. Not only were the railroad companies dissatisfied, but tho packing houses were put to great inconvenience. On Monday the gener-al superintendents of which' the switch-ing association vvas composed will meet and tho switching association will be reorganized, ft is expected that nearly all tho old employes will bo put back to work, aud it is not expected that any trouble will be caused by the switch-men again striking. Hwitebuiens Trouble. Tho Kooky Mountain News says: Trouble is again brewing between the switchmen in tho Union Pacilic yards and their employers. It is well known that in tho Union Pacilic yards is done nearly all the switching iu'the city. s their own switching they virtually perforin that duty for all tho other roads. The reason for this is: Nearly alt tho warehouses belonging to mer-chants of this city are located along tho Union Pacilic tracks. Tho Bur-lington it Missouri switches for about twelve warehouses, the Denver & Bio Grande 20, and the Atchison, Topeka it Santa Fo about 11. The Union Pacilic switches for over 100. Previous to three weeks ago Richard Burns had been in charge of tho Union Pacific, yards. He has been in tho employ of this company over nix years. 'The switchmen, most of whom belong either to the uniou or association, ob-jected to his authority. Repeated com-plaints and doniands for a new director were lodged with Superintendent Dun-can. ' The warehousemen w ho depend upon the Union Pacifio for switching, say their cars are not delivered to thorn promptly. Tho switchmen, without hesitation, deny this point blank and contradict the statement that tho v have taken two hours to do one-hal- f hour's work of switching. LOCAL HKEVITIKS. A petition is out asking for a second lodge of the A. O. U. W. in this eity. ,). P. Gardner, sole agent for tho '' Knox hat, fall styles, just received; Ml Main street. The officers picked up a bay horse on the streets yesterday" and placed it at Wicklc's stable on Commercial street. Tho street commissioner is waging a vigorous campaign against the minia-ture ranges of tilth in certain localities. The grand jury has begun to grind aiid will report diurnally until the work of social aud moral renovaliou is com-pleted. The meeting of the Liberal league called for last night in the federal court room was postponed until next Monday evening. Dr. liasrmn was able yesterday to at-tend to his ofliee duties for the first time since ho was shot at the opera bouse tire. A man named King reported tho loss of a check in the sum of M3.75 at police ' headquarters this morning whereupon notice was given to stop payment. A break in the trolly wiro about 10 o'clock last night on First South street, caused a stoppage of the cars on tho entire system for nearly two hours. Tho independent workingnien's party ' will hold a meeting on Friday nitrht. It is expected that Bingham, Ogden, Sandy, and other outside points will be represented. George Adams was thrown from his buggy on Main street yesterday aud drugged quite a distance. He was picked up unconscious. His injuries are serious but not fatal. "The Fats," a base ball organization that recently distinguished iiself in a contest with' "Tho Leans" will appear in a sporting journal this week.

There were few reductions on the grounds of excessive valuation, but the taxes of widows, tho aged aud infirm were, in most cases remitted, in part at least. Locating tho World's fair site now seems to be t ho solo absorbing qucstioQ otnong the directors assigned to that duty. If Chicago has not the ground ' lior tho groat state of Illinois either the matter of locating tho site had better be referred back lo a committee of New Yorkers. The regular monthly business meet-ing of the Young Men's Christian Asso-ciation will be held this evening at the awooiatinn room, over Oil Fast Second South street. It is urged that all mem-bers be present, as business of import-- . auce will couio up. An episodo took place on Main street at an early hour tins morning in which uno of tho steeds attached to a hack, in tho rythmic language of Officer Sulli- - van, kicked off everything but the bitts. The outfit belonged to hackman Palmer who will find employment enough for a week in putting i' together. The quarterly conference of the First Methodist church, at its regular session last evening, .completed arrangements for the immediate installation of "Rev. Dr. W; D. Mamy as pastor of the church. The ladies of his congregation propose giving a reception in his honor Thursday night. Mrs. Ella K. Kmpey, wife of Nelson A. Kmpey, died al her homo in this city Sunday evening. Mrs. Kmpey was the daughter of President Brigham Young and Kmeline Free Young. She was born at Winter Quarters, or Florence, Neb., Aug. lit, 1847, al the time her father ami the pioneers were absent on their hazardous journey which resulted in the settlement of this valley. CHOKED TO DEATH. The Vi rdlct Over the Kemalns or the Un-known Jllflllt, The police authorities report nothing now or startling in the case of the in-fant whose discolored body was found at the rear of Social hall, although a vigilant effort is on foot to unearth tho perpetrators of what very closely re-sembles a crime of the darkest order. At 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon ( 'oro-ne- r Harris empanueled a jury consist-ing of J5. L. Price, .J. W, Andrews and J. C. Hoss, and proceeded with an inquisition. Dr. Meaeham who was summoned shortly after the ghastly revelation gave it as his opinion that the infant hurl lived twenty-fou- r hours after ils delivery and that death was caused by strangulation. The porpe-- . trators did their tiendish work very adroitly and have kept themselves so far behind tho dark scenes that detec-tion is rendered exceedingly difficult. The remains have been buried and Marshal Young's lieutenants are leav-ing no stone unturned that the authors of the crimo may bo brought to light. The Telephone In Washington. Mr. Blaine's experience with the. tele-phone has made the life of one of th employes of the state department a hol low mockery for more than a week. He lives in constant terror of the wrath tr come. Mr. Blaine, it appears, was anx-ious to communicate with the depart-ment rom a distant part of the city; He therefore called up his office over the telephone wire. Owing to some electrical defect, duo doubtless to the weather, he was unable to make himself thoroughly understood. As not infrequently hap-pens, h? could hear with perfect dis-tinctness all that the an at the other end of the wire was saying, while the clerk struggled vainly to distinguish a single syllable of what the secretary was trying to ponr into his ear. Finally the clerk, unnoyed by the trouble and delay, said in an angry tone: ... "Well, .who are you, anyhow?" Perhaps Mr. Blaine spoke with more emphasis or with greater attention to articulation when he replied. .Whatever the cause, the first intelligible .words which found their way to the ear of tho angry clerk were those which said in re-ply to his question: "My name is Blaine, and I happen to be the secretary ot state." The shock which the clerk experienced was severe, but it was nothing to the lingering agony of doubt which followed it, and which even now is harassing his anxious mind. Mr. Blaine has shown no disposition to resent the unintentional familiarity, and the incident will prob-ably drop into oblivion in a week-o- two. Cor. New York Tribune. The Hop Joints. The hop tieud whose sensitive olfac-tories are always quick to detect the ef-fluvium from the opium den, gives it out that Commercial street, between First and Second South, is fostering one that cau bo sinelled for a mile. The authorities have made repeated descents on the dive, but the Mongolian who conducts it has been cunning enough to remove the tell-tal- e articles and escape arrest for the time being. The dreamy-eye-victims who pose on the thorough-fare without apparent occupation or visible means of support furnish ample evidence of the presence of the poor the suppression of which prompt and he-roic measures should be taken. A plain drunk on the drug is as responsible as a plain drunk on the ardent, aud by picking up tho devotees of the former, a valuablo lesson in reform might be taught. THE SKELETON OF A MAN. l ound by Uanir of Men Digging on the Water Wnrki Dltcli. A ghastly find was made on North Temple street, between First aud Sec-ond West streets, yesterday afternoon. William Connors, foreman of a gang of mon working on the waterworks ditch, unearthed the skeleton of a man. The bones were found only about one foot below the surface. They were not en-cased in a collin, and from their appear-ance the body had been hastily dumped into a shallow hole to get it out of sight. People who have lived iu that neighbor- hood for twenty years know nothing of any one ever having been buried at thai place. - Probate Court.

He states that a new aud strange disease is creating alarm in the southern countries. "This disease," ha said, "is more fatal than yellow fever. It is called the black Jeverinsome countries, and it will do. more injury to a person in one day than would yellew fever in two weeks. It has played havoc in Honduras and in the southern part of Central America. A hospital which has just baen erected near the proposed line of the Nicaragua canal has some 200 victims. One half of them will probably die. The black fever comes almost as suddenly as a stroke of lightning and there is no relief. If you attempted to get out of the country you would not survive and you must remain quiet and take your chances. The first symptoms are burning sensations and before you have been afflicted two hours alive at the stake. Unless the black fever disappears from that country or acure is found for it the loss of life will be Tribune. A Mew Concentrator. Charlio Litchlield, an eminent mill-wright, who has superintended tho construction of several large plants in Colorado, departs for Ophir this morn-ing, where he has been engaged lo erect a concentrator that will adapt itself to the handling of low grades that have been accumulating in the camp for years. The handling- of ores by concent nil ion will work a revolution iii the activity at Ophir, and will doubtless plat e it among tho most productive of surrounding camps. The present season is one of tho most important and re-sultant that has been experienced by the mine owners of the locality aud another promises employment for dou-ble the present roster. The Divorce Mill. In the ease of Julius Kremer vs. Louise Kremer, divorce, the plaintiff was yesterday ordered to pay alimony in the sum of $30 and to deliver to her a retainers fee of $75, the same to be paid within thirty days.

The Wasatch block came near dis-solving in a flood of flame this morning and probably would have done so but for the heroic action of olllccrs Sullivan and Lynch who went to the rescue of the chef who had just before lighted tho gasoline stove that had promptly exploded, showering its contents iu all directions. The burning fluid was soon wrapping itself about the fixtures and struggling for a foothold upon the ceil-ing when the officers made their appear-anc- e on the scene with a few buckets of water and outed it. A stove in iHmilding the dimensions of the asateh is a dangerous article and too much care canuot be exercised in handling it. Kestauraut Franrais, formerly the Uintah, 1(1 Commercial street.

He's a plucky fellow, though, and it looks now as if he was going to get on top." Mr. O'Kourke is well known among the Colorado contingent and his move-ments are being closely watched.
