14. THE SALT LAKE TRIBUNE, FRIDAY MORNING, JANUARY 24, 1913. Jm
1 10 ME PUBLIC
I PHIS ME PUB.
One on Great Sail Lake;
Other on Parley's Creek,
Near Sugar House.
' LOCATIONS FAVORABLE
Commissioner Keyscr Work
ing Hard io Establish
Plans for two public parks, one to
skirt the shores of Great Salt Lake,
north of the outlet of the surplus canal,
and the other to since the banks of
Parley's creek near Sugar House, have,
boon prepared by the city park depart
ment, and will be submitted to tec city
commission at once.
Commissioner George A. .Key ear. bend
of the park department, announced yes
terday that; options had been secured on
Jen acres of land on either side of Par
ley's crcok usi below Twelfth South
and cast of Elcvcuth East, -where hn
proposes to create a. natural park of
Mirpassing beauty. '.No other spot
trithin tho city or near vicinity offers
such ideal natural surroundings for .1
park, ho declares, and no time will be
loht in taking advantage of it. The
land will cost between $0000 and $10.
000. and rlic cost of cultivation and
a-dding the iieenssar touches of arti
ficial landscape will be insignificant in
I view of what nature already has dono
by way of beautifying the tract. Al
ready it is ornamented with a grove- of
trees", and the rivr hanks otter excep
tional opportunities for sloping terraces
and rustic bowers.
Plans on Lake Shore.
The idyi of a lake shore park is. hc
i ing worked out as rapidly as Superin
tendent Nicholas Byhower can prepare
the plans, lie outlined the project to
'oiimiissioucr Keyscr in a letter vested
day, .incL this letter will bo submitted
to 'the commissioners for their approval.
Mr. Byhower suggests that tho city
accmirc possession of the land stretch
ing along tho lake for several miles
north of the iiirplns canal and for a
width of about m00 feet. This land is
said to bo the very best that borders
upon the lake, and can bo purchased
for practically nothing at present Tho
water from the surplus canal could be
turned onto the land and thus drain it
of al alkali deposits, leaving jr. fit for
cultivation and parking. Having dono
this. Mr. "Byhower plans to undertake
on a gigantic scale a system of narks
and boulevards, which, if carried out
to completion, will make the park the
most unique and interesting in all tho
Parley's Creek Park.
The Parley's creek park will bo
established early this "spring, provided
the city commissioner?, will sanction
the purchase of the laud. Commis
sioner ICoyser is particularly desirous
of creating this beauty spot because of
the rapid growth of the city toward
tho southcaHt. Several subdh isions lio
to the south and cast of the proposed
site, and hundreds of homos are being
built in the vicinity.
Tho land is planted now in valuablo
trees and native shrubbery, including
5omc of the bcs.fc park varieties. Tho
"le vat ion is favorable and many springs
bubble up here and (hero and wend
in little rivulets iu tho crock that, cuts
the land in two. Soil suitable for any
' vegetation covers ihn ground, and gravel
L abounds in sufficient quantities for
'.travel walks and creek borders.
The park would in no way conflict.

Legislature Probably Will Be
Asked to Establish the-
COST WILL BE SLIGHT
Physicians ' Take the Ground
That Such Action Is a
Tn all probability the present legisla
ture will bo ar.ked to pass a bill provid
ing for the establishment in some near
by rural district, of a atato sanitarium
for tuberculosis suO'ererfi. Although tho
State Al!oclical anpociat.ion, or the stato
board of health, has not taken oflicial
action in the matter, it 13 well known
that prominent physicians individually
favor tho movement and are supporting
Tho movement probably had its incep
tion in tho city health department at
the hands of City Health Commissioner
6. G. Paul, who rocentb gave out an
interview sottincr forth many reasons
why Utah should establish and main
tain such an institution.
In contradiction of assertions said to
havo been mado by certain physicians
lo tho effect that "nattvo eases" of tu
borculosis wcro unheard of in Utah. Dr.
Paul said that while this may have
been true in carlv days, cases bad bcon
found in Salt Lalcn since this city had
bccoino larger and more metropolitan.
Dr. Paul spoke of conditions that would
give rise to tho discapu and showed by
tho rocords of tho health department
that tuberculosis had caused moro
deaths hero lasf, year than the larger
percentage- of other BO-callcd dangerous
While it Is hold that tuberculosis
cases hero nrc directly tracoablo to im
portations of tho disease, it is argued
that unless some mcasuro of )rotcction
is provided, native cases would event
ually bo found. In a city as large as
Salt L-ake, , .Dr. Paul a:iid, conditions
become prevalent that make possible a
steudy spread of the disease, which.
unlcs3 checkod by propor methods and
care of sufferers would probably be
come as common in itH native- origina
tion as in that, of importation.
Tho establishment of a Btate sani
tarium for tuberculosis sufferers, ho
said, .would moan that all cases would
bo treated at the institution, thus pre
venting infection by association iu
public places, and at the same time ben
Cost Will Be Small.
It is held by those who are support
ing tho movement that the establish
ment of such a sanitarium would re-
quiro only a nominal appropriation,
whereas tho need for the institution, is
becoming vital. Tuberculosis treat
ment, they say, means "fresh air"
treatmeut largely, and tho propoood in
stitution would call for the construc
tion of tent houses, open cottages and
a small hospital, building at a noniinnl1
ercpenso. requiring a small amount, an
nually for maintonanco.
Tn connection with the movement, all
members of both bouses of the presont
legislature havo been invited to attend,
the Lnborty theater today or tomorrow
to view a film portraying a draraatio
story that deals wtib the treatment and
cure qf tubcroulosia. Tickets have been
sent tho legislators with the compli
ments of the Salt Lake Typographical
union and the Allied Printing Tradeo
council of Salt Lake, who are support
ing tbo movement for a sanitarium.
