Visitors from outside districts to
Salt Lake City arc unanimous in
their expressions of admiration be
cause of the undoubted growth, its
steadily maintained progress and it
self-evident prosperity. This is all
just as it should be, not only as re
lates to the facts observed and made
mention of, but as showing an ab
sence of that "hateful" feeling
which not a few in Utah as well as

other portions of this great and good
ly land are prone to engaging in.
How often in the days agone-gone
for ever, we hope and believe has
it been heard in the legislature, in
political conventions and gatherings
of other kinds from different parts
of the state that "Salt Lake is not
Utah," that "Salt Lake wants the
whole cheese and the box it comes
in," and so on? This might be harm
less enough but for the fact that a
certain percentage of malice great
er in some cases than in others, was
an unfailing clement in the make-up
of the verbal fabric. It also showed
envy, jealousy, and altogether a con
dition of mind altogether irrespon
sible. This, all repeat, is rapidly falling
away- It is almost nil. Better judg
ment and more generous expres
sions are almost the invariable rule
Those who do not realize that the
commonwealth hand cannot say to
the commonwealth foot, "I have no
need of thee," have still something
coming in the way of useful infor
mation. They arc, as suggested, no
longer numerous, but the need of in
formation is none the less pronounc
ed on that account.
Salt Lake City, by reason of its
natural situation and surroundings
is of necessity the great clearing
house of the state. It certainly in
jures no other part, but rather docs
good to all for this to be the case.
It records the production, receives
the produce, issues the checks, and
makes up the balances; while doing
this it acts also as a commercial ba
rometer, infallibly indicating the rise
or fall of the market generally or
any conscquental item of trade. It
is a directory, a receptable and dif
fusing point not only for material
substances but for such statistical in
formation as must be had in order
that the producer, the trader and the
shipper may have some idea in ad
vance of what may be depended upon.
It takes a great central point, where
railroads converge, where communi
cation is constant, whjere markets
arc ample and capital is considerable
to do and be the things herein set
forth, and no other in Utah, for the
present at least is equal to it.
Utah and Salt Lake are of course
not synonymous terms, but neither
would be entirely great without the
I other. Greece lives in history, an
cient and modern, because of Athens;
Rome, as republic or empire, is
known first because of its capital city,
and without Constantinople there
would hardly be map-room accorded
to Turkey. The great cities, the, cen
tres of trade, the heart from which
pulsate the life-blood of the nation,
arc the first consideration and the
chief one everywhere. Salt Lake is
all right. The bigger it gets, the
bigger will be its surroundings; the
more money coming to it, the more
Iwill be diffused. Let it build, let it
grow; the faster and more enduring

GROWTH OF THE WEST.
A good many people who are other
wise informed don't know just how
fast the western side of the great
American empire is getting to be the
big side; among them are not a few
who don't care to know. A glimpse
at the rate of advancement, as well
as the status itself, is afforded by a
document recently issued by the
Southern Pacific railway company,
containing its first and last report as
to that infallible barometer of growth
transportation. The statement re
lates altogether to products, but as
to these tells a very interesting story,
one that could not be made much
more impressive if elaborated to the
proportions of a volume and would
not then be so easily comprehended
or so certainly read.
The following table has been pre
pared to show at a glance what the
increase in such transportation is. It
covers the tonnage from 1902 to 190(1
inclusive and shows the grand total
of such increase to be the enorm'ous
figure of 15,891,985 tons, as follows:
Agricultural products 4,260,039
Animal products 852,213 ! I
Mineral products 6,018,454 I
Forest products 4,751,491 :l
Manufactured products 3,466,178 :
All other products 3,286,590 , I
Agrircultual products 1,778,960
Animal products 259,070 H
Mineral products 1,075,486 H
Forest products 1,586,374 I
Manufactured products 1,268,517 I
All other products 594.497 l
It is also worthy of note that in
the same period the passenger traf- 9J
fie increased at the rate of 97 r IB
cent per mile, nearly double, wi. t 'M
the proceeds thcrchom were nearly
as great, being 94 per cent. Truly, fl
the railroads are growing in wealth I
as well as in trackage and equipage, ;
but of course the growth is only an
index to that of the country traver- II
sed. It is a condition of inter-de- M
pendence that is mutually beneficial 1
