Legislators Visit Logan to Se

tion of Needs. ;
WANT NEW BUILDINGS
President Widtsoe Prophesies
Utah. Will Ultimately Be
Called "Dairy Slate."
Special to The Tribune.
LOGAN, .Tan. 25. One hundred and
twenty thousand dollars was a.3ked by
tho Utah Agricultural collcso rYom the
members of the state legislature who
visited the Institution today. The money
Is aoked for tho construction of new
building. and for much-needed Improve
ments at the college. The collcgo pro
poses to construct n new chemistry
building and a. new dairy, to coniplota the
heating1 plant of the Institution and to
ralso the two wings of tho mechanic ario
building to two stories, aud to put a new
roof on thlu building, and to construct
a lare machine shed.
About twenty members of the legisla
ture, including tho committees on edu
cation of both houces, were tho irucsts
of tho Agricultural collcgo for moat of
the day. During- tlii forenoon the law
makers spent several hours in consulta
tion with President J. A, "Widlsoo on
the needs of the institution. Xater they
were guests of honor at. tho chapel ex
ercises of tho follege, and Bcveral ad
dreaacd the students. A hurried trip to
tho portions of the Institution whero Im
provements wcro most needed and a de
licious dinner, Eervcd by the young la
dles of the home economics department
of the 3chool, completed tho day. Tho
members of tho legislature returned to
Salt Lake on an extra car which was at
tached to tho res"ular afternoon train.
Trip Is Enjoyable.
The trip to the school tvss one of en
lightenment rather than on of enter
tainment although tho members of tho
legislature declared that tho Junket wan
one- of Iho pleasantcat trips they hax3
ever enJo5'ed. Most of tho time, how
ever, was confined to business. In dis
cussing the various questions relating to
the college, tho raamborc of ths legisla
ture eagerly sought Information relative
to tho school and obtained from President
Widtsoe the promise that he would conao
to Salt Lake to dlscuzs the questions
brought up more In detail with iha legis
lator?. The Utah Agricultural colloga is main
tained by a percentago of the total rovo
nue of the state Hot a-slde as a perma
nent maintenance fund, by the sale of
state lands set asldo for tha purpose,
by government appropriation and by fees
charged studento. These sourcea of
revenue, however, aro only for mainte
nance. Improvements in buildings and
the construction of new bulldingn mu3t
come from special appropriations.
Varied Problems.
Among Iho questions discussed with
President Widtsoo by the members of
tho lcglslaturo wero the permanent main
tenance fund, a new chemistry building,
a now dalrj'f a new machlno shtd, the
now roof for the mechanic arts building,
tho new heating plant and the new dam
which Is to furnish light and power for all
slate institutions. Tho courses of atudy,
the attendance and the per capita ex
penditure:! were also discussed at some
length.
At a private meeting In tho rooms of
tho board of trustees of tho Agricultural
college, President "Widtsoo spoke at
length to tho members of the legislature.
He apoke on the beginnings of agricul
tural education, then traced the history
of tho Utah Agricultural college from
itu origin In tho Idea advanced by Anthon
H. Lund, twenty-five years ago, when he
wan a member of the territorial legisla
ture. Pioneer in Work.
Utah was fi pioneer of tho western
slates In offering a course in agricultural
education. Tho Utah Agricultural col
lege was ono of tho earliest schools of
its kind in iho country. It vraa the first
institution in tho United States to offer
a commercial courso leading to a degree.
II wan a pioneer In experimentation
work In dry farming and Irrigation. It
was one of the fltnt colleges In tho coun
try to establish a courso in home econ
omics. Wlien tho Utah Agricultural coIIofto
first took up tho experiment work in dry
farming there wan little or no dry farm
ing In the state. Xow 205,000 acres of
( dry farm lend In Utah are being proflt-
ably cultivated. When tho drr farm
ing experiment work was begun by tho
college tho state sold dry farm land at
from 76 centt to SI-BO pnr acre. Now tho
etatc has a minimum price of ?2.CO per
acre and practically all of tho state dry
farm lands ara sold ata figure consid
erably In advance of tho minimum.
The work of tha collcgo In Irrigation au
boon of tho most advanced nature. In
the college work and through the exten
sion bureau tho faculty hau Inaugurated
a vigorous campaign to prevent the waste
of water. Already tho farmers are be
ginning to conserve tho supply as a re
sult of this campaign, and Or. Widtsoe
estimates that within the ne::t few years
the water will bs made to Berve twice
the acreage- that It. does' at present.
Ultimately, In tho opinion of President
Widtsoe, Utah v.lU bo primarily a dairy
utatc. Tho Agricultural college has been
fostering the Industry for years, Intro
ducing scientific methods In dairying and

oC Utah, find the c:cacfc center of
tho stato aud then let your eye'
wander a short distance to the cast,
you will find a political eubdivis-j
ion measuring about throe inches cast
and west and ono inch north and south.
It. in labeled ''Carbon county." It'
you look ufc the industrial map, issued
bj' tlie Commercial club, you will sco
a louo slcer over to tho far cast, and,
at various other pointB you will sec
tho legends, "Coal," "Hydro-Carbons"
and "Alfalfa." This means
that Carbon county is noted for stock
raising, coal aud agriculture.
But, it is in coal that Carbon county
excels. Some years ago, a Utah, citi
zen, with an cyo to tho main, chance,
offered to lay a wagor that Carbon
county contained euouglt coal to sup
ply tho entire United. States for. an !
indefinite period-. At ailato hour last!
night the befc had not boon covered.
"Mighty," if Small.
Carbou county is by no manner ot
means the largest county in tho stato;
in fact, it is- ono of tho smallest. How
ever that may be, Carbon county is a
mighty littlo county, tho adjectivo,
"mighty," qualifyinft county, instead
of its sister adjoctive, "little." In
other words, Carbon county id mighty
just now in the matter of industrial
enterprise and the distribution of tho
much-sought-for dollar of our dad3. To
be explicit, Carbon county is spending
more money at this limo and will spond
nioro monoy within tho noxt two years
in tho matter of development than any
othor county in Utah, Salt Lake not
excepted.
It 1b owing lo the nntcrprlso of the
United States Smelting, Reftnlng and
Mining company that all thin has come
about, and, strange to cay, comparatively
few people in tho state realizo tho magnl
tudo of tho work now being carried on
by that great corporation.
It was announced cxcluolvoly In The
Tribune some months ago that the
United States company had brought about
tho consolidation, by purchase, of a num
ber of additional coal properties in Car
bon county, and that tho company hail
determined to build a coal road in order
that It would not be handicapped In tho
matter of getting lta product to tho
markete of the world- This corporation
building tho road is known as the Utah
Railway company.
Much Quiet Work.
Since this time there ha3 boon com
paratively little said concerning tho op
erations of the company, but tho headu j
of Its vnrloim departments havo gone I
about their several duties and, without
any fanfaro of trumpetH or crash of i
cymbals, an immenso amount of work
7ia3 been done.
Tho lino of the ew coal road, as now
surveyed, and as it will be constructed,
begins at Provo and, generally speaking,
parallels tho Denver S: Rio Grand a to ,
CaBtle Gate. At Casllo Gato the lino
veers off to tho southwest and runs a
distance of approximately twenty-on.o
miles to Bliiokhawlc and throo mljes
southeast to Mohrland. It in at Blacl:
hawlc Mohrland and Hiawatha, a short
dlstanco to the northwest of Blackhavk,
that the groat mines of tho company aro
situated. ;
Tho contract for the now road lias been
lot from Mohrland to Blackhawl: and -thenco
to Castle Gate, a total distance of :
twenty-four miles, and the work of
grading is being pushed as rapidly as
tho state of tho weather will permit
Much of the grading has been done and
ties and ralk) Jn groat quantities are
now on tho ground awaltln; laying. The
contract for the grading also has beon
lot from Thistle to the mouth of Span
ish Fork canyon, a dlstanco of eleven
miles, and grading is now being done.
From tho month of Spanlah Fork canyon
to Pruvo tho work of securing a right
of Way la now being pushed, and con
tracts for grading will bo let ay soon as
the preliminaries have been disposed of.
Will Wipe Out Resort.
Whilo It lo stated that tho new road
will parallol tho Denver j Rio Grande
from Provo to Castlo Gate, thlu does not
mean that the roads will run in close
proximity all tho way. In some places
the two llnro will bo divorced a distance
of thre6 milos, whilo at othor points

Constructed on. Adjoin
ing Ground.
PLAN'S for building activity at
Main and Fourth South streets
' iuvolving at least half u million
dollars and pcrhapB a million or
moro arc under way. Tho plans con
template tho construction of a business
block and a new church, the former by
eastern men and tho latter by tho
management of St. Paul , Episcopal
church. If the proposed deal is cousu
iualed Iho present church will bo de
molished to mako way for the new
'business structure. !
Eastern capitalists aro negotiating
for tho purchase of St. Paul's church,
.Main and Fourth South utreets, with
tho intention of erecting a business
block. No information as to tho cost
of Uio building could bo obtained, but
tho price of tho property and nature of
the transaction are takon to indicate
that considerable money will be iu
vestod. Through- Adolph Tvichler. real ostalo
agont, they have' offered $200,000 for
the church aud ground. The- .Vestry
asked $250,000. Negotiations arsl'ill
undor way.
To Demolish Rectory.
At. soon as tho vestry ig paid tho sum
finally agreed upon, whether by the
eastern men or anybody olse, the new
church will bo built. It is not intended
to Bell tho ground on which tho rectory
stands. The rectory will be demolished
for tho new 6acred odiflco.
Meanwhile a parish houso will be
erected near the church. This will be
a permanent building to bo used re
gardless of how long a time it requires
to dispose of the church. Monoy has
been raised for tho parish house with
entertainmonts and t3' other means
from time to time. Last night the
thirty-third anniversary of the found
ing of St. Paul's parish was celebrated
at the rectory. A collection was taken.
This monoy or a large part will be
added to the parish houso fund.
Magnificent Church.
Tho new church is to be one of the
most magnificent in tho city. Probably
all the money to bo realized on tho
proposed sale will be devoted to tho
building and it may bo that more will
bo contributed. In selling tho proper
ty it Is intouded to get as big a -price
as possible for this reason.
The property consists of a frontage
of 165 feet on-Main and 365 feet ou
Fourth South stroot. Tho vestry detarca
to sell tho church building and 100 -Coot
on Main streot, retaining a frontage of
sixty-five feet on that thoroughfare.
Opened by Richter.
According to Mr. ."Richtor, negotia
tions wero opened by him for the east
erners about eight months ago. His
clients have not given up their inten
tion of building in tho vicinity of
Fourth -South aud MnTu streets, and all
that is holdiutr them off is tho price.
Mr. liichtcr last night said $250,000
was loo much. "W. W. .Reese, rector,
declared that emu wub commensurate
with tbo value of other property in that
viciuity. ITo talked as though the ves
try would not bo willing to tako loss
under any circumstances. This would
bo at the rato of $2500 per front foot
on Main street.
About thirty-four years ago tho
church was donated by tho Misses
Mouut of New York, who Btill retain
their two-storied residenco on Broadway
in tho business section of the eastern
metropolis. "When the matter of sell
ing Iho property was first taken up it
was thought that provisions of tho deed
would prevent tho sale, but investiga
tion showed thut tho Mount sisters sim
ply stipulated that in bucIi an event the
new church was to bo built within two
blocks of tbo preaont one. The tenta
tive plans of the vestry do not violate
this provision by as much as an inch.
Cheap Years Ago.
The original cost of ths church prop
erty "was $25,000. Tho building was
erected under direction of Bishop Tut
tlo, who at that time was au energetic
