Office Buildings and Large j
IThoro can be no possible question ns
to the future greatness of S'nlt Luke
Oily to any one who will stop and c.ou
siiior ils natural resources. With such
advantages as it possesses on every
side and its location in regard to other
cities, it. must, in the nature of things
move forward constantly. As soon as
the Thomas ICcarns ofliec building is
started we intend to establish a per
manent ofliec in Salt Lake City."" '
This was the statement: of. John
Parkinson of the firm of Parkinson &
"Borgstrom, architects of Los Angeles,
who have designed the plans of the
new Thomas Kearns office building to
be located on the west side of lUnin
street, between First and Second South
streets, when seen ,by a Tribune re
porter at; the Knutsford hotel Friday
Discussing" the various 'points that
make for the greatness of any largo
city todav, Mr. Parkinson .spoko of
them iu detail, and paid particular at
tention to Salt Lake as a distributing
point and its relation to other cities.
Reasons for Greatness.
When questioned as to the particular!
reasons why the city should become 1
much larger in the near future than it
is at present. M'r. Parkinson said that
the city presented great, advantages to
lh home builder on account of the
fact that it had large territory which
was not built up at, the present "time,
and as far as he could .iudge from in
quiries mado in regard lo values, it of
fered many opportunities to the inves
tor in real estate. "With its broad
streets and situated as close as it is t.o
the foothills, it offered magnificent pos
sibilities from a residential standpoint.
Viewed from the standpoint of health
alone, it made a strong appo.il to the
chance visitor who remained iu the
city long enough to look over the pos
sibilities regarding the climatic condi
tions. Xor was the city bound to grow on
account of a real 'estate boom started
bv any set of real estate boomers, but
H must enlarge in answer to the de
mand made by its ever-increasing in
dustries for which the. natural rc
Houreos of the surrounding country were
calling. ?dr. Parkinson looks for" an in
creased building activity which will be
due to the demand for larger office
buildings and hotels.
Speaking along .these lines, he said
that Los Angeles was an example of
what he meant. In iho last, few years
Los Angeles had changed to such an
extent that the visitor who had not
Ik en there in the past faw wars 'would
not know the place. The firm of Park
inson & Borgstrom alone, to say noth
ing of the others, and there are many,
had built the Alexandria, which . cost
more- than $1.T)00.000. and would soon
have an addition added costing $1,000,
000 more; the Angelas hotel, the King
Edward hotel, the Maryland hotel and
SO jier cent of the large modem office
buildings. All of these were in an
swer to the demand the city had made
for larger and more modern oOJee build
ingp. In Seattle the same condition
was noted, the firm of Parkinson fc
Bergstrom having built the Pacific ho
tel, the Butler, the Seattle Athletic
club and a great number of school and
All of this building has been in an
swer to the same demand which has
been felt throughout the west for the
past1 few years. Salt Lake t'itv. being '
quite ns progressive as any other citv I
of its size, there was no reason Mr

pt$$mm mi in iiiiiiiiMiiiiiini wmmmmaM
Parkinson said for the same condition
not; .being soon here in the near future.
After looking over the situation in
Salt, Lake the firm has decided to es
tablish an office here which shall be
permanent. The linn does no residen
tial work, but, confines itself to large
ollico buildings, hotels and schools.

BY SALT LAKE MALE CHORUS
Prom ;i musical point of view, t ho
concert ivou at tho Fnt M. 12. church
011 Friday night, was a swtpss that
should prove gral if.vinp lo the inumbcrK
of (ho Salt hake .Mali- chorus, under
the directorship of Prof. Squivo Coop,
and to the soloists and in.HtrumcntnlistH
who supplied the well-selected program
The male chorus opened with "Holy
Art. Thou,"' Vnmi Handel's Largo; and
"Steersman, Leave the Watch." taken
from Wagner's" Flying rjul chmaii. " In
the opening (and this was noticeable
in most, of the work of the male
chorus), the attack was ns 0110 voice,
a very desirable fenl.ure in company
singing. The largo movement was ma
jestically and harmoniously carried in
permanent tempo, but the tenors were
somewhat too vigorous to produce com
In Mozart's quintet in G .major,
the Brahms quartet, under the leader
ship of Prof. George .Skelton, and as
sisted by Jlr. Engberg, clarinet, did
some very pretty work, with, however,
a slight intimation from Iho cellist
that he was at. first a bit. nervous,
which caused a barely fault' intona
tion at one short period, but. which was
instantly mended, with returned confi
dence. Beethoven's "Hymn lo N'ight,'' by
the Schubert male 'quartet, was an ex
cellent number, and the character of its
rendition indicated improvement in the
quartet's work since its appearance at
Iho last concert given in tho Colonial
theater. The recall which was accord
ed was amply deserved.
Miss Hazel Greaves, soprano, sang
"If T Knew," by Gaynor, and "Hap
py Song," I13' del Kiego. Scarcely
worth mentioning, because hardly no
ticcable on account of an almost de
lightful elusiveness, there was a little
coquetry with Iruo pitch just for pos
sibly a 'half-dozen bars. But afterward
well, it was a revelation of tone pow
er, sweetness and control, that gave
promiso of another star in the vocal
lirmainent. Miss Greaves merited the
recognition paid her bv the audience
in its demand for another number.
Tho chorus sang a trinity: "Mv
Horn Shall Weight a. Willow Bough,"
by Brahms; -ifn Banks and Braes,"
and Dudley Buck's "Bugle Song." In
the second of the group the attack was
somewhat poor ami the harmonv was
not constant; otherwise the work was
The "Hymn lo ihc Emperor." by
Haydn, rendered by the string quar
tet, was an instrumental gem in the
setting of vocal numbers, and the per
formers acquitted themselves with ear
Tho "Serenade," by Gounod-Hum
pcrdink, given by the chorus, with a
soprano obligafo sung by Miss Greaves,
was either a bit beyond the chorus or
it hail not been properly rehearsed.
The faiiltiness here was 'offset in "The
Owl and tho Pussy Cat " (de Koven),
by W. S. Lamoreux and the chorus.
' l-id Kimball acted as organist, while
Miss Irene Kellv wns piano accompa
nist. Kegrett.abfy, tho attendance was
entirely unworthy the concert.

; JUSTICE TO AMERICANS!
Editor Tribune It seems Lo mo that the
-time lias come when the rank ami illc of
the American party oupbL lo take a hand
In the shaping of politics iti.Uie approach
I am si llvm believer In the principles of
the American party, and have been one of
Its workers. Abuses have crept Into the
party and ought to be exposed. Our offi
cials aro not always guided by the princi
ples which wo profess: and more, thr
Is it tendency In the minds of thoso in the
city and county building to Imuglne they
are all the show, ami they are now In a
scramble to have a raise In their salaries,
but not one voice Is raised to give the
common laborer, who does most of the
work and furnishes most of the votes, a
ial3c. Most of the former are paid more
now than they are worth, wlille the lat
ter are not. paid In proportion lo their
work, while many do not belong to the
American party and make no bones about
saying so, and good, upright men that do
belong eunnot get work enough to pav
for the only paper In Salt Lake thev
care to read.
What Is the city committee doing? Do
they expect to keep the American party
m HnoV What are tholr duties to 'the
American party, that they do not trv to
eliminate thlo abuse? There arc hundreds
today In Salt Lake that arc asking these,
ouestlons. If the Gentiles or Salt Lake
furnish the votes to carry Iho partv to
success, thoy ought at least to stand an
even show for work with a Mormon; but
ilii. rr verse Is the case.
Orit man reniurked ll-c other i!uv r,.-.!-
there wore more Mormons in tho city end
of the building than on the county side.
As long as the heads of departments In
the city advise the councllmcu of what
men are needed, before It comes before
the council, so long will they have some
pet to till the place, before any honest
man knows anything about It.
Mr. TJppman Introduced a. resolution
before the last city convention which
brought a greut roar from evcrv council
man present, lie. withdrew the resolu
tion after a bard tight, but It ought to
have gone to a vote.
It Is time there was a change made, nnd
It will have to bo made If the American
rmrty expects lo win tho next election.
Most self-rcspocting men do not propose
to lower themselves to sneak after some
councilman all the time. One man oimhl
