ISSUES STATEMENT
. Takes Issue With Contractors
as to Allegations Concern
ing Utah Material
OTHER SIDE IS GIVEN
Producers Say That Material
Is High-class, and in I
Abundance.
' Members o Hio Utah Rock Asphalt
association object to the reports -which
havo been circulated by contractors
i "who are-' doing public improvement work
in the city in which, tho statement has
been mado that the homo product can
not bo iad cither in sufficient quantity
to mako tho work practicable, or of bu
v i flcient quality to mako it acceptable to
the city engineers. A letter has been
received by The Tribune in. which is
v outlined the position of tho association,
t. The communication follows:
In your Issue of yesterday ap
puared an article entitled, "Utah
iz Rock Asphalt Said to Be Scarce:"
I ' Your article, as written, gives a
- wrong impression to tho public by
leading them to believe the fault Hc3
with the owners of tho rock asphalt
rather than with the contractors.
In justice to the rock asphalt peo
ple, who have spent thousands of
dollars In developing the properties
and placing- the material on the mar
, ket, and who, as a result of their ef
forts, have caused a big saving to
the taxpayers by reducing the price
of asphalt paving, wo ask you to give
space to this letter.
First There Is no scarcity of Utah
rock asphnlt.
The quantity exposed for quarry
ing In three of tho properties has
been measured and estimated by wcll-

to over one billion tons. Many of our
prominent citizens and public officials
have visited the properties and know
from observation that vast quantities
of the material exist, available for
use.
Second On April 10, . this year,
shortly after the contracts for paving
calling for Utah rock asphalt had
been "granted, the Utah Rock Asphalt
association, through Its secretary,
wroto to the successful contractors
suggesting that they get their orders
In early so that there would be no
delay. On July 3 following, a letter
was addressed by the association to

tho city commission calling attention
to tho fact that no orders for the
material had been given to any of tho
rock asphalt owners, and that If any
delay was caused through lack of
promptness In giving orders tho blame
should bo attached to tho contractors
and not the owners of tho rock as
phalt. We aro Informed that tho
commissioner In chargo of the street
department Immediately notified tho
contractors to get tholr orders In
promptly and that no excuse for do
lay on account of failure to get the
material In time would bo accoptod
If they failed to do so. Notwith
standing this, one contractor failed
to put in his order until It was actu
ally required and should have been
on the work, which, however, being
a comparatively small order, was
soon filled.
Awaiting Removal.
It is still piled In tho con
tractor's yard, where it has been
for several months. The other con
tractor has never given a written
order for tho material. Not until ho
was almost ready for the material
did ho take the matter up with any
of the owners of rock asphalt, and
then only verbally stated to one of
the owners that he would need about
10,000 tons; that he would take some
material then on hand (about, seven
carloads). About two weeks later ho
said to send on two or throe carloada
a day. This order wan given verbal
ly In an off-hand way. The loose
and lndoflnlto manner In which the
, order was given would Justify any
business concern In refusing to com
ply with It unless tho verbal order
Hhould have been confirmed In writ
ing, which in this caso was never
done, hut tho owners of the Rsphalt
properties, knowing tho antagonistic
attitude of somo of the contractors
and their deslro to defeat the use of
Utah rock asphalt, and that th pub
lic generally ia prono to bo critical
with new enterprises, accepted tho
order in good faith and started to fill
It and aro now doing so. If tho or
der had been given to any ono of tho
owners of rock asphalt at tho proper
time, there would have been no delay
in supplying it
The rock asphalt business is nol
like the con! or other similar busi
ness, which has thousands of cus
tomers and Is running continually;
yet If an order for 10,000 tons were
given a coal company today it would
require as much time to fill tho order
as has been taken by tho asphalt
owners. There Is never mora than
ono or two' customers for rock as
phalt, and where, as In this case,
there am a number of concerns to
furnish the material, no one concern,
using common business prudence,
would be Justified In anticipating the
order and have It ready for delivery,
knowing that its competitor may got
it and that its supply would romaln
unsold indefinitely. The owners re
ceiving the verbal order from tho
contractor have acted promptly, and
the material Is beginning to como in
faster than tho contractor can use
It. If tho contractor had waited as
long before putting In his order for a
foreign nsphalt, there would proba
bly havo boon no paving dono this
season.
Refers to Opposition.
The public has lately witnessed tho
bitter opposition that, tho Utah mar
ble and tho Utah granite concerns
have met in their struggle to secure
tho use of home material and to es
tablish what bids fair to bo two large
Industries if thoy aro only encour
aged. Those Interested in defeating the
home product will probably seek to
lay the blamo on these concerns for
any delay which may occur in sup
plying tho stone for the capltol
building, notwithstanding they havo
been ready and willing for months
past to get ready to supply tho ma
terial. Many false implications and state
ments havo been spread broadcast by
thoso seeking to defeat the use of
Utah rock asphalt. "Wo havo not al
ways attempted to meet these state
ments, feeling that the public fairly

Listen mother!
Your child isn 't naturally cross and
peevish. See if -tongue is coated; this
is a sure sign its little stomach, liver
and bowels need a cleansing at onco.
When 'listless, pale, foverisb, full of
cold, breath bad, throat soro, doesn't

stomach, diarrhoea, remember a gentle
liver and bowel cleansing should al
ways be the first treatment given.
Nothing cnuals "California Syrup of

well understood the situation,, but
lately several articles havo been
printed In tho newspapers and many
statements havo been spread broad
cast that have caused inquiries to
come In asking for a true explana
tion of tho situation.
Rock a'sphalt Is not an experiment
by any means. Thero Is moro of it
used in street paving than any other
form of asphalt. Treated as It should
bo, It is tho most perfect , form of
asphalt paving. Contractors familiar
with it are willing to give guarantees
doublo tho usual time, knowing its
great lasting qualities.
Much Work Done.
The Utah rock asphalt ownors havo
been attempting for years to estab
lish this industry and If given tho
proper support will do so. They havo
met with bitter opposition, which has
sometimes stopped at nothing to ac
complish its ends. If tho rock asphalt
industry is encouraged, It, together
with Incidental Industries connected
therewith, will eventually becomo ono
of tho largest homo industries in the
state. In the past and at the present
tlmo much of the opposition has como
from sources where least expected;
In other words, from people who
should bo supporting and not knock
ing a home industry. In somo cases
where the opposition has been fol
lowed up an ulterior motive has been i

All that wo ask of tho public In

ownors along the streets calling for
Utah rock asphalt will agree on a

Utah Rock Asphalt association will
pay tho expense.
