TO-SAVE THE LAKE BATHING.
It Is ovldent that something more
than a more makeshift will have to be
undertaken if we are lo save for this'
city the great renown brought to It byi
the delights of bathing in the briny wa
ters of the lake. To scoop out a pond
at Saltalr would not be as good as to
have a tank close to, town nnd pump the
water Into It. Besides, the surround
ings at .Saltalr as at present are both
unsightly and discouraging, with the
long reaches of waterless and odorous
Hats. Something radical is needed, and
the change should be undertaken with
! as little delay as possible.
Of course, as has been suggested, It
would cost a good deal of money to
take down the structures at Saltalr and
move them over to the Island; but the
firs't thing the management knows, it
is going lo be a costly business to leave
them where they are. And to dredge
out a broad avenue for bathing, con
necting wan tne main uody ot tne inKC,
would cost a lot of money, loo.
It seems to be the general opinion
that the solution of the whole question
is to be found only In the removal of
the resort to the went shore of Antelope
island. A location could undoubtedly
be found there which would till every
needed requirement a good beach,
plenty of depth of water, and space on
the adjacent phorc to erect all the need
ed buildings for the resort itself, and
also for summer residences for those
who might wish to erect them. This
latler feature had begun to be a feature
of, attractiveness at the resort at Gar
Held beforo It failed, nnd It would add
much to the desirability of any resort
which might be established.
The old-timers hero who have had
their days of pleasure at the lake when
the water was plenty, do not appre
ciate the great attractiveness which the
briny bath has to tourliits" and new
comers. As voicing the views of one of

Editor Tribune: Having recently come
to Salt Lako City and Intending to make
It my permanent residence, 1 very natu
rally take an Interest In what is going on
In and nbout the city In common with the
Old residents; nnd In reading the dally pa
pers, one of the first things of public In
terest (so It appcara to my mind) was
the question of saving the resort Saltalr,
the prci?s dwelling on the subject very cx
lenslvcli". Not having yot visited tho resort, I am
very naturally not well posted on the sub
ject, as regards Its present condition, but
what I have read In the papers leads mo
to bellevo that It is well- worth preserving
at any cosl.
In 911c of the evening papers of last
Tuesday's Issue there was quoted aiiopln
lon said to have been given by one of your
leading bankers which was to the effect
thai the "cost ot moving the resort Is too
It seems to me that In theeo days noth
ing which could benefit the cbmmunlty
uhould bo allowed to die on such an opin
ion, until the matter had been thoroughly
Anything which will add to the attrac
tiveness of the city should be saved at
any cost, and If It Is properly managed,
the time would not be far distant when
it would more than pay for itself.
Why not "get together." so to speak,
and dcvjsc some plan for saving tho resort
and see to it that the outsldo world knows
there Is such a nlace as Snltair. on that
when tho tourist season begins, Saltalr
will be down on the list as one of the
place3 of Interest to bo visited.
When one slopB to think of the enormous
tourist traffic of the present llino, It will
readily bo seen that by proper handling
Saltalr could bo made a "drawing card"
to tho tourist as well as a placo for our
home peoplo to enjoy themselves.
By all means let the resort bo oaved.
Why not have a committee appointed to
look Into the matter thoroughly and de
vise some means to savo "Saltnlr to the
community? A NEWCOMER.
Dr. R, B. Preble, president of the Chi
cago Medical Society, evidently de
spairs of tho suggestion that, the city
manufacture the anti-toxin for diph
theria, and he now wants the Federal
Government to manufacture It. Tho
heartless monopolists who hove control
of the making and of the market are
evidently determined to fnttcn their
pocRct-books even at the cost of chil
dren's lives. The suggestion of Dr.
Preble Is a good ono; the Government
has for years been manufacturing and
distributing various lymphs, antl-toxins
and other preparations, and to sup
ply this diphtheria anti-toxin would be
no great stretch of 'governmental ac
tivities or powers. It would be a
mighty relief to afflicted people, if the
Government would do this,, and .would
be a Just defeat of a greedy,' merelle&a

r OIL-WELL BORING BEGUN.
An event ot far more than ordinary J
Importance to this valley took place
yesterday. The plant being all in
place, tho mnchlnery was set In motion
for prospecting the country for oil. The
scene of the operation? is the flat below
Farmlngton. The machinery Is heavy,
the preparations having been made for
a pqssible bore of four thousand feet
In depth. In tho starting of the ma
chinery, everything worked to perfec
tion, and the ' opening was most
The Indications of both oil and gas
in this region are pronounced, and have
been well known for years. In a small
way, and nt shallow depth, considera
ble natural gas has been found, and It
was used in this city to Its limit, but
the wells clogged, nnd financial dlfil
cultics made the enterprise lmprarliru
ble. Now, however, that a strong
financial company has taken hold, and
that Its experts have found Use pros
pects of succors worth the cost of
preparation and exploration, there Is
every reason to hope for the most fa
vorable Jesuit. May an era of develop
ment unparalleled, profitable alike to
the promoters and to the Stale, dale
from this beginning!
ELECTRIC TO 0GDEN.
The movement for an electric line
from here to Ogdcn will command the
unqualified approvnl of the public. The
plan wiil Include the absorption of the
popular "dummy line" which does a
busy business In summer In conveying
pleasurc-soekery to and from Lagoon,
and runaway boys and girls who wish
to enter Into clandestine marriages at
Farmlngton. The new project will have
all this business, and an nll-lhe-ycar-round
pull for general business besides.
This new line, fully equipped as an
electric route, is expected to be In op
eration in a year and a half from now.
It can easily be completed in that time,
and the frequent trips daily that are to
be fvneeor1 will lm o
venlence to the people of both cities
There Is no intimation that this pro
posed electric line has any connection
with the plan announced last summer
for a through electric line to Brlgham
City on the north and Provo on the
south. Any suggestion to that effect
would be pure speculation. And yet,
the scheme Is such a good one, and the
prospects of it being a paying enter- !
prise are so promising, that It may yet
come Into realization, with this Salt
Lake-Ogden link as the strength of the I
UTE CLAIMS MAY BE SETTLED.
Senator Teller introduced, on Novem
ber 16th, "A bill for the relief of the
confederated bands of Ute Indians." On
December 11th It was referred to the
Court of Claims. The claimants under
the bill are the "Southern Utcs" in Colo-
rado, numbering 055; the "Uncompahgre "
J Utcs" of Utah, 795, and the "White p
River Utcs" of Utah. 304. The "Ulnlah i
Utcs" at White Rocks do not come un-
der tho provisions of the bill, as they I
located in the State at an early day;
the others coming In under the act of jj
June 15, 18S0, which was subsequent lo U
the Meeker massacre. This Is a step
toward the settlement of a grievance of &
long standing. If the bill passes, as It l
should, the Utes are likely to be nald for
their Colorado lands,
Their original reservation In Colorado
embraced a vast tract extending from b
the southern boundary of the Slate to S
fifteen miles north of the fortieth par-
allcl. and from the 107th meridian to ftj
the western boundary of the State. In
the year 1S91 a forest reserve of 914,500 9
acres was sot aside from this tract, and M
In 1892 another forest reserve of S77.D00 I
acres. The Southern Ute reservation
had previously been cut out from the
south part. El
The attorneys for the Indiana claim
the sum of $5,780,833 Is due their clients.
This estimate Is based on the average
price obtained for lands already sold
from this reservation since Juno 30.
ISS'J, which aggregates In value the sum
of ?1,6-16,2SS, and at an average of $2.00
per acre. As the lands yet remaining,
the proceeds of which Justly belong to
the Ute, Indians, are denominated agri
cultural, mineral, coal, Umber and stone,
their real value Is a matter largely qf
The Indians,havc complained bitterly
of the unconcern and tardiness of the
Government In regard to these claims,
and the delay in arranging for a settle
ment of the same ;and now that an ad
justment has begun under favorable
auspices, It 1b hoped that an agreement
may be reached, generous enough In its
terms to satisfy the Indians and to put
at i-est forever this vexed question
The compensation to the attorneys is
not to exceed 15 per cent of tho sum
awarded to, the Indians, if the fee
shpuld reach the maximum amount, it
will be so far beyond Ute arithmetical
calculation that they will have no com- ;
prehension of the enormous charges, but '
friends of the Indians will wonder 'why
it became necessary to prosecute a claim
against a just Government, and at such k
surprising cost, when tho tcrnia of the
agreement between the parties eeem to I
admit of no cavil. But It Is only one I
more case of Congressional delinquency, H
