Tho street department's request for
some $ofi0,000. including a heavy in
croRse over the 1012 appropriation, will
be allowed to pass -without; much trim
miug owing to the fnut that tho depart
ment will have about- fivo mijes ol" ad
ditional streets to enro for this year aa
a result of the rocont annexation of
Forest Dale. Trad it not been for this
fact the btreot. department would have

PULL FOR ROAD FUND
Sail Lake. Members of Asso

A large doleRutfon of booai.ra from
Green River came to Salt Lake yester
day to lend their voieca nml influence In
BUpport of the bill now pending In the
legislature asking for an appropriation
of 150,000 as a preliminary fund in tho
Interest of the Midland trail tnuiaconll

The delegation Ie hended by S. O.

12. A! Urlckcr. all prominent buslneut! men
oC Green Rivor, who are among the Uvo
members of tho Midland Trail assocla
tlon. Speak for Many.
The. Croon Klvor boosters represent
not only their own town, but tho Midland
trail supportors nf all tho towtw and
hamleta touched by the highway route
from tho Colorado lino onward, and If
their uplrlt and argumonls count, tho
Midluud trail project will bo success
ful. At the prcacnt time thcro aro thrco
routes across the Rocky mountains, one
of which .will be selected an the first of
llclal tran3continontaj hlghwav. Tho
Overland routo enters Utah hy wav of
tho Union Paelrtc to Ogdcn. The Santa
Fe route doea not outer Utah. The
Midland trail rout enters Utah from
Grand Junction, Colo., noaucs through
Thompson. Green River, woodsldo, Price,
Price canyon and Provo to 3alt Lake.
The Midland trail in considered the most
advantageou route for Utah and trana
coutlnentalists alike, and is being sup
ported for official selection.
.Next July a party of aulomobllista
representing the American Automobile
association and the American Automobile
Manufacturers association, which are
backing tho transcontinental movement
to tho extent of $10,000,000, will come
west to Inspect thr three proponed routes
and make official selection of one.
Is Work to Be Done.
At present the Midland trail link- be
tween tho Colorado line and Green Itivor
18 hardly passable in place?, but could
easily bo mado a splendid road Avlth un
nurpaHscd scenic surroundings, asldo
from its commercial and development
valno to that Beet ion and thi; tatc at
large. It Ib for tho purpose of making
tho road passable hy the time the auto
mobile party from the east arrives that
the appropriation of $50,000 Is asked.
The boosters from Green River ace no
limit to tho bcncflLs to he-derived from
tho establishment of the Midland trail.
They set forth that hundreds of thou
sands of acres of rich land would be de
veloped through the agennv of a good
highway and spurs that would follow, re
sulting In tho development of one of the
state's richest sections, the increasing of
population, business growth, commerce
and tmdo and the opening up of new in
dustries to enrich Utnh.
Rich Country Surrounds.
Some of I heir arguments are: Greo.n
River cantaloupes aro tho finest in the
world: lho surrounding countrv la rich in
farming and hydro-carbon possibilities;
tho Green rivor otTcrs ulmost unlimited
water for hydro-electric projects that
would alike serve that entire section with
electric power and mako possible vatt
reclamation by irrigation the proposed
routo passes virtually through tho mid
dle of thr state; scenic attractions un
surpassed; roadways needed more than
now railroad: thousands of tourists to
Panama-Pacific exposition would traverso
routo leaving their dollars in Utah and
carrying abroad word of Utah's re
sources and possibilities
The Green River boosters hav each
Invested from f'5.000 to 'li'O.OOO or moro
In that fcetlor. and naturally want to
see It prosper, hut their boosting Is not
of the bcliisli kind They are boosting
for the Midland trail, believing it will be
ono of tho greatest factors "in the de

to euchre Salt Lako City out of tho

upon which the city tiled last October
after obtaining a special grant from con

through the action of the stPto engineer.

applications, which wore mado originally
In 1010. On txvo of the applications. Nos.

and Phoebe lakes, the extension is made
to October Gl, 19H. and on the others
the extension Is dated March 27, 1J15,
In the specified time the city must com

ber, when peculiar delays In the ap
proval of the city's applications for ex
tension of tinio were encountered among
nome of the subordinates in tho statn
engineer's office, tho city officials have
been fearful lest the city should lose the
sites. Repeated effort to have the ex
tensions upproved were mndo by the city
prior to the first of the year, when the
originnl tlrno for perfecting the applica

year, with the applications still in Jeop

In Governor Spry and asked him to uso

against Impending loss. Tho governor
promised his aid. hut in spite of his

tude of tho state engineer's office. It
was confidently believed at tho llmo bv
the city officials that certain holdoi-s o'f

City Now Secure.
The extensions of time granted yester
day dispels all danger of the city los
ing out now, according to Sylvester Can
non, city water engineer, who has been
looking after lho city's Interests in the
matter. The sites are secure until the
expiration of the designated time in tho
extension papers received yestcrdav. By
that time the city expects to have "made
sufficient progress on Its proposed res
ervoirs to Justify another extension If
Two years ago tho city picked out
valuable reservoir nltos near Lako Marv
and Lako Phoebe. Twin lakes and J.akc
Catherine. Filings wore mado at onco
in the atato engineer's offico and appli
cation WH.S mado to lho department of
the intorior for tho water rights, inas
much as tho lakes aro in a forest ro
erve the department refused to act in
the matter. After a long fight the city
succeeded in bringing the matter to tho
attention of congress and a Bpcial act
wan passed authorizing the Interior de
partment to permit the filing. This was
accomplished last November, but in the
meantime tho two years In which tho
city, according to Its first filings in the
stute engineer's office, wok to have
completed its projects wan about to ex

plied for on tho ground that owing to
the operation of a fcdoraJ law, "over
which it had no power. It had been pre
vented from currying out its nlaim. It
Is on this representation that, the stato
onginecr yesterday grantod the oxten
slons. More Than Suspicion.
"Whllo J cannot name any persons
specifically, there has beon no doubt
in my mind but that influential Intorosts
have been trying all along to block tho
city from securing the wator righta or
the reservoir sltc3 at the head of nig
Cottonwood." said Mr. Cannon yostor
day. 'There was no reason whv lho
extensions could not have been mmio
prior to the expiration of tho two vcars.
Tho state engineer, however, had noth
ing to do with thft matter. I believe,
though, subordinates in his offico ovi
denlly Wero conforming to tho desires
of persons and interest having rights
In Big Cottonwood creek."
Step to no on with tho reservoir plans
at the head of Big Cottonwood are being
considered by tho city commission at
present. Some provision probably will
be made in tho budget for th current
year whoroby the work can bo pushed
through the preliminary i-tajje at least.
If the city succeeds in increasing the
limits of Its bonded Indebtedness so as
to obtain several millions for water Im
provement, Juch as Is contemplated, tho
completion of tho ronervolrs will bo in
cluded in tho Improvement plan.
