I'l s - r ,. .
ICIIf WILL TAKE
Outlet Pipe Probably Will Be
Finished Under City Engi
MAYOK BRANSFORD SENDS
LETTER TO THE COUNCIL
Various Reasons Advanced for
the Breaks in the Pipe;
The first active step looking toward
tlio taking over of the oulot ipc for
the west side sewage system, tho Camp
boll Building company contractor, was
taken by tho city council in a special
session 'hold, at "tho instance of the
I mayor. J liursilay evening.
T-ty a resolution introduced by .Mr.
Martin, and unanimously adoptod, tho
1 council terminated the "agreement en
tered into with tho building companv
on January 21. whereby Mr. Campbell
agreed to waive all rights under his old
contract and permit the city to u.c tho
outlet pipe for a period of four months
or less without forcing its auecpinncy
on the city to see if such use would
stop tho leaks in iL and directed ilu;
board of public works to notify the
contractor to proceed with the work un
der tho original contract.
This throws the matter back into its
original state, and under Ihe old con
tract the city may declare tho con
tractor in default, after due notice, take
the work over and finish it and charge
it to the contractor's contract. This is
what is contemplated in the adoption
of tho resolution, and it, is probable, that
rho board of works will today give, Ihe
contractor the required notice looking to
the taking over of the contract. j
Mayor Takes a Hand.
This may be done without loss to the
city, as there is still due the Campbell
Building company on Ihe contract some
thing like $5000, If tho city lakes the
work over the. pipe will be finished un
der tho direction of the city engineer.
Thn frtllm-iiirr nmiminifvi himi frnm llir
I mayor, giving a full history of the
case, led up to the adoption of tho reso
lution: On llio ?tli day or Apr!!, IO0S, a con
tract was enteral into by and between
Salt Lake 'lty and tbe Campbell Ruild
Injr company. ;i corporation, whereby said
Campbell l'inllding company agreed to fur
nish material and construct tho outlet
pipe from pumping station of the Inter
cepting; sewer and connection to cravlty
nutlet sewer. Said contract was approved
Ibv Uif city council on the intli nf April,
and approved by the major on the
14th day of April. 19US.
On the ""Ist day of January. 100ft, an
agreement was entered Into by and be
tween the city of Salt Lake and the said
Campbell Building company, whereby tlm
company agreed that said pipeline should
be turned over to tho city "for a period
of four months for the purpose of giving
(he city the right to determine whether
said pipeline was properly constructed,
and In such a condition as to meet the
requirements and to the entire satisfac
tion of the city.
The said pipeline since that date has
caused considerable trouble by reason of
the pipu therein continually looking and
causing the water to flow therefrom, and
It Is absolutely necessary that something
should bo done to protect the Interests
of the city In this matter and at as early
a date as possible.
As n number of your honorable body
are thoroughly familiar with the situation.
I will not enter Into details, but will re
spectfully recommend that your honor
able body take such action as may be
necessary In the premises.
Followed by Discussion.
Tho reading of the. communication
was followed by considerable discus
sion. Mr. Hall suggested the reinforce
ment, with concrete, of the pipe under
neath the thirty-sis railway tracks
passing over it. Mayor Bransford said
he was in favor of concrete reinforce
ment at first, but, thai, ho does not be
lieve tho present breaks aro duo to the
weight of passing trains, although the
consequent deep vibrations of the earth
may have something to do with the
The main cause of the breaks in the
pipe, in the mso-or's opinion, was the
use ol cast iron instead of malleablo
shoes. Tho contract specified all mal
leable shoes, but the contractor did not
havcouough of these shoes on hand and
the city engineer permitted the use of
east iron shoes every other band. The
contractor, it is alleged, violated this
agreement, and put on nearly all cast
iron shoes, which break much easier
than do malleablo shoes, and this,
Mayor Bransford believes, is the cause
of most of the trouble.

Fair on Saturday,
The feature of the Prosperit- fair at

evening, was the presence of members
of tho Commercial club, including Presi

Fisher Harris. Former Cov. .lohn "V
Cutler and State Representative Hugh
A. McMillin also were present. Gov.

count of not being in the city, but Mrs.
Spry attended with a number of friends.
Special arrangements were made for
music, ami the High School Cndets
band played in front of the buildiug be
tween S and 0 o'clock, while the Hyde
.iuvonilo orchestra, under the direction
of little Miss Roumnnia Hyde, di.HCourPed
attractive music inside tho buildiug.
Kvery one was in good humor. The girls
at tho. booths looked their prettiest and
dispensed tea and koffee-et, chocolate,
not to mention candy and waffles, to
all comers. At 0 o'clock the rooms wcro
crowded, ho that it was difficult lo get
into tho buildiug.
Salt Lakers Attend.
There was a noticeable difference in
tho make-up of the crowd over preced

of conference. Hitherto most of the
people have been from out of town, evi
dently visitors to Ihe city, but Thursday
evening most of the people were citi
zens of Salt Lake. During the day the
crowd wns not so groat as on previous
days, although they came iu a constant
stream from the "time, the doors wcro
opened at 0 o'clock. The attractions of
the music brought them in the evening,
I however, and it was estimated that
about 00000peoplo visited the display
before closing time.
