Railroad Officials Meet Salt Lake Cit

Want to Shorten tho Through Lino
Line Via Salt Lake They Claim
Would be Much Longer Meeting n,
Pleasant One, but Decision Already
Favored the Lake Route.
Ogden gets the cutoff. The Southern
IMclflc will build Its line from Lucln to
Strong's Knob, thenco across the flrent
Bait Hko Into Ogden thereby saving
forty-three miles over Its present route.
This fact became known yesterday nft
crnoon, when tho railroad ofllclals met
u committee representing the Commer
cial club of Halt Lake. The meeting
took placo In the large aoant room
In Short Line headquarters opposite
Mr. llancroft's ofllce, and those present
were President llornio O. Hurt and
Chief Engineer J. H. Herry of the Union
Taclllc nnd Pourth Vice-President Ju
lius Kruttschnltt nnd Chief Engineer
Wllllim Hood of tho Southern Pacific.
Kcprcsentlng bait Like were Messrs
T. G. Webber. T. 11. Cutler, II. E Cut
ler, W. A. Neldcn, M Harratt. E.
Wilkes, A. 1". Doremus nnd 1 A.
These gentlemen were prepared to
ably argue In favor of Salt Lake and
that they did so goes without sijlng.
1 ut the railroad ofllclals went Into de
tails for the benefit of tho Salt Lakers
and showed them that tho Ogden-Lucln
cutoff would savo grndes and curies
and forty-thteo miles of distance oxer
tho piosent line Then they showed
that the Union Pacific could not build
a line Into Salt Lake and tint nny line
coming fiom Lucln to bnlt Liko would
be over heavy grades unlos the water
were used, md at all events the point
of ionni-tlon would have to remain nt
Ogden, so tho south shore line would be
rlxt)-sever miles longe than the tres
tle roiito across tho lake nnl that for
these reisoni the Ogden-Lucln lino hid
been recommended and would bo recom
mended to tho board to bo built.
Tho Salt Lakers stated tint they had
ben working under tho Impression thit
h shorter lino could be secured around
the south shorn of tho lake, but II
such wero not the case, they, of course,
could icndlly understand why the short
er route had been selected.
Theso were tho main points brought
out, although tho question was dis
cussed from nil sides and eery inittci
beiilng on tho bubject was given lr
Aftci tho meeting Mr. Kruttschnltt
explained thnt there had always been n
inlsapprehenblon a to what could be
accomplished, but nctuil surcys had
demonstrated tho superiority of the
Ogden-Lucln cutoff. No contracts had
been let et, only bids lirwl been asked
for. s to tho meeting of yesterday he
said Hint over) thing would bo submit
