Tho -watch, which was taken from
Maslich when he was arrested In
Butte, Mont., promises tQ be the
t . state's most important exhibit, accord-
1 ing to the prosecution. Evidence for
L two days ha3 been largely concerned
- with when It was purchased. Mas-
'. llch, according to the opening state-
4 nient of Baldwin Robertson, prose-
jj cutor, told local officers he had car-
: J rled the watch for years. Paul H.
1 Hay, formerly assistant county attor-
- ney, testified that Maslich told him

half years. John McEnnery. who was

first being that he had been in a

there a commercial metropolis second
in importance to Salt Lake. In the
year named they laid out this city of

road company, who surveyed the town
site, by giving every other lot to that
corporation and in less than three
weeks had erected more than 300.

some 1500 and was recognized as the
principal shipping and outfitting point
for northern Utah, Idaho, and Mon

Tells Cost of Steam
Plant for Copper Co.
SALT LAKE, May 15 A steam
power plant to develop 40,000 kilo
watts, as planned by the Utah Copper
company engineers, is adequate and
will cost about ?3,SO0,000, according to
testimony given yesterday by L. B.
Stlllwell of Stillwell & Putnum, con
sulting engineers of Now York, before
the public utilities commission. The
evidence given in connection with Uie
application of the Utah Power & Light
company for an increase in rates on
its power system.
Esetimatlng Utah coal to bo deliv
ered at the plant at $3 a ton and to
havo a heating quality of 13,000 British
thermal units, Mr. Stlllwell said that
the total operating cost of the plant
to produce the load required, 37,960 kil
owatts maximum, with an average
load of 3S.373 kilowatts, would be
$823,791 a year. Adding capital costs
for interest, depreciation and the like,
tho resulting cost of the power to the
Utah Copper company would 4.1 mills
per kilowatt hour.
This gives the annual load factor of
85 per cent. Tho evidence was intro
duced to controvert that of the power
company, given earlier In the hearing,
which was to the effect that a power
.plant on Utah lake, at 45,000 kilowatt
capacity and under a 75 per cent load
factor, would deliver power to the ter
minal station at Salt Lake at a cost of
10.63 mills per kilowatt hour. Should
the annual load factor fail to 50 per
cent, the cost per kilowatt hour would
run to to 13.S5 per cent, according
to the power company's estimates.
