within two weeks.
"When asked why the construction
company had decided to locate Its prin

It was due to unbounded faith in the
future, of Salt Lake, and because this
v It y was rapidly becoming the central
operating point for a vast territory of
comparatively undeveloped business and
"We have fnlth not only in Salt Lake,
but In the entire surrounding territory,"
he siascrted. "There is no question in

of the biggest and best cities of tho
country. It Is growing rapidly. Its lo
cation is Ideal in relation to the destined
development of the Inland empire.
"There is only one thing. In my
opinion, that might be called si drawback.
I believe the business blocks here are
ioo large. It seems to me that it would
pay the city to condemn property in the
central district in such a manner as to
permit of four business blocks being
made from one of the prcncnl dimen
sions. This would provide more comers
and more expeditious avenues of tr.-idc
and business. 1 believe that lhe sidili
tlonal tax valuation would more than
pay for the hind so condemned within

conditions all through the west were
greatly Improving. Work on the Walker
building, he said, would be rushed lo
completion. Me said that the company
had made sood progress on the work,
