Electric Service, to Commeiico
Willi Sunrise to Lively
Southern Towns.
With the rising of tho sun over the
Wasatch range- Monday morning the
new electric lines to Sandy and Midvalo
will be placed in operation. The fa
miliar yellow cars of tho Utah Light &
Railway company will go from this
city through tho cities named and all
through tho day at convenient hours
cars will go back and forth. Owing to
the very low rate of 20 cents it is con
fidently expected that Sandy and Mid
valo will be depopulated for tho citi
zens generally aro going to declaro a
holiday and come to the city -where
the' will visit thoir friends and en
joy the first results of the new fast
and frequent service with tho greatly
reduced rates.
Tho route is by tho State road for the
greater part of the way and iust as
straight as a lino can be built. At
Highway SS tho line branches off to
Midvalo,-formerly called Bingham Junc
tion. i
Tho line is laid with new heavy steel
and a high-grade copper wire is 'strung
overhead. A sub-station is locator! nr.
Cottonwood creek to transform tho
power for tho southorn extensions. Isow
cars have been ordered of tho latest in
tcrurbnn typo but they will not be
hero until October J. In the mean
while tho cars of the '100 class, which
wore only put in service a year or so
past will be used.
, The full schedule has been published
in The Tribune, but brief lv it can bo
stated that the service will give half
hourly enrs to and from the city for
twelve hours each day aud hourly there
after. A celebration is jointly planned for
the two towns on a date to bo an
nounced later. Most dl the officials
will go down to the two places on Monday.
Quite an important step was taken
Saturday in the affairs of tho Iron Moun
tain, est. GcorKO ,fc Grand Canyon rail
road, when Ihe Salt Iake Security and
Trust company contracted to insuro in
vestors in the railroad stock against" loss
for a period of twenty years from date
of purchase. Tho banking Institution Is
a strong one and foremost in local de
velopment of the industries of the slato
so this arrangement makes the stock of
tho now railway company an absolutely
sa:Tc investment.
It is anticipated that tho move will
have tho effect of greatly aiding the
company in perfecting Its plans for the
spuedy construction of the line, tho full
details of which have appeared in The
Tribune from time to time.

Another important stride is about, to

Is an alliance with the Pacific Coast
Steamship company. Tho steamer lino
Is one reaching all ports along the Pa
ciilc from Alaska to Mexico. In the past
the Southern Pacific has refused to
Interchange tickets or freight with tho
company, and it lias been impossible to
buy a through ticket to any Pacific coast
port and then to another port via Lhis
line. It plies botwocn Seattle. Taconia.
Portland, San Francisco, Rcdondo. San
Pedro and San Diego, in addition to its
Mexican and Alaskan cruises, and is
equipped with tho flncsL boats on the
coast. By cxchanelnir traffic with iim
boat line, all Rio Grande and Western
Pacific passengers can have the ocean
trip from San Francisco to such places
as San Diego, Rcdondo, Portland. Or.,
and the Paget Sound country. It can
offer many attractive trips to its passen
gers, and means a great advertising
feature for the new road.

Abandonment, penuriousncss, brutality

mere hotel clerks for such trivial bills as

set up by the widow of the Orogon mil

bill. Besides, the names of two women
one of whom figures slightly in society
are mentioned as attracting Van Volken

How he changed! It pains mo to men
