make the tax $15. A tax of 50

CITIZENS WANT NEW
WARD ORGANIZED
The officers of Parowan
Stake have received a, petition
signed by some forty residents
of Newcastle, asking that a new
Ward be organized in that com
munity; ,
With the rapid increase in
population in the Newcastle
country, and the prospect for a
greater increase within the next
six months, there has appcare'd a
need for a ward organization for
the benefit of the people.
President L. N. Marsden and
the other officers of the stake
will go out and look the situation
over at an early date and if the
needs appear as urgent as the
petition suggests, a ward will be
organized without any more de
lay than is absolutely necessary.
These taxes are to be imposed
in addition to the personal prop
erty tax of the state on vehicles.
Iti was the sDnse of the commit
tee that it would not be wilHng
to advocate the special tax un
less the state issue the $1,620,
000 bonds. Those present were
itavor of having the $1,200.0Q0
frbpi the bond issue for the state
capitol diverted "to good roads
and made part of the proposed
$i,20,00'Q issue." ' was argued
that as the state had about $1,
2t)0,000 ppm the inheritance
tax, itcoultjusQ that -mbirfey for
the capitol and as more inherit
ance tax were .paid, it would
have ample ior" the new building!

As a result of meetings held ', H
on Tuesday and Thursday nights (J H
there has been launched a plan, , H
to erect the most imposing busi- Q H

yet constructed in the city.' , H
For several weeks plans. have H
been quietly outlined and nego- i t H

erection of a business block, and ( 9JH
it now looks as though.the result ' ' HH
would be an actual beginning of . ' .H
construction in the near future. J H
At the lat meeting, which ?"B
was held in the office of the , 'fl
Cedar Mercantile Co., there v ',H
were present representatives of f ! ?
that company, M. D. Higbee, M
manager of the Cedar Sheep ;- P " JH

doing only three walls would be t"4 IH
needed for the three divisions. ,H
The Cedar Mercantile Co. would - H
use the north wall of its present ' - H
building and pay for the con- ' ' H
struction of the north wall. The ' I
Sheep Store woujd use the south 1 "H
wall of its present building and H
pay half the cost of construction ' H
of the aouth wall. Mr. Houchen ' H
would pay a portion only of the " v H
construction of the walls on his ' H
property. By this plaj of cc- H
operation the building could be ' H
erected at a saving of several ! I
thousand dollars to' each proper- ( H
ty.owner. H
The building would have a H
frontage of more than 100 feet - H
and a length of 80 feet, two : t H
stories high. The formation H
of a compj(nys is planned, to be 1 ,-
