Pioneer Builder Has Financed
Construction of Giant Tunnel,
That the Moffat and Midland rail
roads soon will be racing for Salt Lake
is evident from two announcements
made Tuesday. Iu Denver it was stat
ed that contracts would be let this
week for the extension of tlio Mid
land's line from Newcastle. Colo., to
this city. Simultaneously State Sena
tor John S. Carey of Dcuver, who is in
Salt. Lake expressed tlio belief that
D. JI.Moflat had at last succeeded in
the necessary arrangements to finance
the great lunuel through the Rocky
mountains at an elevation 2000 feet
below the present series of switchbacks.
The announcements indicate that the
loue-cvpeelcd dasli for Salt Lake on
the part of these roads is about to bo
gin. Moffat Koad Coining.
"t am of the opinion that the financial
difficulties of pavld II. Moffat are prac
tically at an end and that his reported
recent promise that tlio Denver, North
western & Pnclllc will be pushed through
to this city will be realized quicker than
most persons think."
Tills w;is a pnrt of the statement made
Tuesday by Slate Senator John S. Carey,
a. well-known stockman of Routt county,
Colo., and a. personal friend of .Mr. Mof
fat. Senator Carey said that alout a
week ago Mr. Moffat told him that he
was golns to New York and that, he felt
that on this trip he would be able to ar
range for tlic complete financing of the
road through to Salt Lake City. Mr.
Moffat left for New York several days
ago and Is now In that city closlntc the
negotiations for money with which
to complete the road that has been
his dream for years and which he has
backed t brooch dark and trylncr days and
months as few men back a project.
Mr. Carey said that Mr. Moffat ap
peared to be confident that his troubles
practically nre at an end and that he
will be In a position to start work early
next spring on the extension of the road
from Steamboat Springs. Colo., to Salt
Lake City and that ho soon will be la
a position to announce that the money
Is ready for the boring of the great tun
iifl through tho Uocky mountains at an
elevation qf "000 feet below the present
pass lined by the road. It is estimated
that this tunnel alone will cost 34,200,000.
Hill Line Heads This Way.
From a point near Newcastle. Colo., to
Meaker, then west and down the "White
river on- to Salt Lake City is the route of
the Colorado Midland, according to In
fonnailon given out In Denver from
a reliable source. A prominent financier
of that, eity said:
"While 1 am not an officer of the
Midland and no official announcement
of the plans of that company has been
made public. I feel safe In saying that
within the next few months tho an
nouncement will bo made that that road
intends to push Its line on to this city
with all possible speed. A part of- the
survey for the line Is completed and the
work of surveying the rest of the tine
In riow under way.
"I feel safe In saying that the Hill In
terests are headed towards Salt J.nlce
City and that the official announcement
of what they intend to do will be forth

It Is declared that Ti.000.000 cords have
already been cut from private forests to
supply American mills, and that the
countervailing and retaliatory duties
which the Payne-Aldrich tariff imposed
have put a premium of $1.02 por cord
upon tho cutting of wood from private
