TRISTATE HIGHWAY
Contnued from page one
cases to import a desirable stone I Is
for this grade that there should bo a
wide range In the limitations and yet
the minimum reulroments should bo
severe enough to shut out 1 decidedly
Inferior stone e should not want to
accept a stone that would not give re
sults of It lent 10 for coefficient ot
wear H for harness 10 for toughness
and 20 for cementing value
A road or the suggested third cad
could be built oC any local stone that
might b obtainable a8 long I It had
any of the needed qualities oC the read
metal The few limitations could be
JUt severe enough to shut out any
Btono that had weathered badly or had
not shown any merits for use as a
rood stono
These limitations set forth hy
Mr Greenman amount to fair
by severe requirements for tho frt
grade of ran and only Jhe belt
grades add most dumble rock can ul
fill them but the rough usage that
such 1 road will b subjected to In
carrying its heavy burden wi only
permit oC the best metals The rapid
motion oC vehicles and especially the
rapid locomotion oC the vehicles of to
day require us to build more substan
tial roads than ever before Tho con
ditions imposed on the stone for second
and third grade roads can be fulfilled
by many ledges oC rock In the state
that are easily accessible
SELECTION OF MATERIALS
We can only make intelligent selec
tions oC rock for our use In the State
have experimented
oC Utah after wo l1e
with a great del of the avalablo
stone I 1 committee oC men should
be appointed to gather samples oC all
the stone that may be used fur
road building and make tests on It
and then tabulate their results long
before the cholco oC a atone for aIY
partcular road should be made then
In writIng sp elfcatons makIng esti
mates arid calling for bids engineers
and road commissioners would know
approximately at least whore the do
slrble grades of rock could be found
I seems absurd 10 make an estimate or
tho cost of a road vote the money to
build It draw up specifications and
then go out and hunt for a rock that
wi fulfill the conditIons In the de
livery of steel or brick or any manu
factured product that might b done
the tests mIght be made after al Is
manufactured and acceptance or re
jecton might bo had as a result of the
tet With stone however we would
not 10 out Into the open market and
purchase a stone ot a specified coer
cent of wear hardness toughness etc
The engineer Is apt to elect the kind
oC stone and quarry and ask the con
tractors to bid en the delivery of that
particular rock
Havlnr STi mind the usefulness of ad
Vance study oC the properties contained
by different rock for roadbuldlng the
University of Utah and In particular
the testing department of the State
School oC Mines un institutIon oC the
stale began the Installation oC a road
testing laboratory During tho past two
ear there have been installed stand
ard abrasion cylinders 01 testing pay
Ing brick and macadam rock standard
Impact testing machines etc A rather
preliminary investigation ot many oC
the roelcs In the valley was made and
n report of the same was published by
the State School oC Mines In its bob
Icthl No 2 These tests show n wide
variety fr results OC the Imestonei
trttcUssopce mc1pss while others
could easIly be accepted There Is a
great del of difference In the wer
of She same kind oC stone corning from
different quarries only short distance
apart The results convinced us that
tho wise plan would be to spend a l
the effort now In the st what
te erort studying we
have In the nature of valuable road
metals In the different parts of the
state HO that when we begin to build
long roads Into the country districts wo
wIll male no mistakes In the selection
of our materIal There ore ImCtones
sandstones grnies shalls and Igne
ous rock In great abundance scattered
I over the statewe can set to ard
use them when we will Nature his
been lberal In her supply of rock Wo
only must be careful In our selectIon
Good road materials will stimulate
their use while the discouragements
which will follow the unwise use of
poor materials although good ma
tends may be at hand wi result In
retarding our s
In conclusion 1 want to say that tho
testing of stone for roads can be made
a safeguard against the use of poor
material just the same al the use of
the other engineering materials and
the engineer who will accept nothing
short of materials that will pas the
prescribed tests wi secure a quality
oC material that Is bound to bo moro
durable and useful No one would
think of accepting large consignments
oC steel rail for the railroad bee wih
out knowing what its composition Is
and phslcal properties
At the concusion of Prof Shock
strands address n general discussion
folowel being participated In by Prof
J V Jensen ot the Utah Agriculturai
cologe a Logan Mr Greenwood ot
Utah county former County Commis
sioner lton or Sandy and others
Prof Jensen said that he had recently
had occasion to take up the mater
of good roads with the farmers oC the
northern portion of the state and upon
making Home comparisons between the
I use ot broken rock 01 aeadam ma
tend for road making and the UO or
tIm earth road he lied found that the
macadam effected a saving of 10 cents
pel ton mile over the earth road U
half the families oC lie state said
Prof Jensen or 3000 In approxImate
numbers haul 100 tons of produce live
miles each year which Is taken to bo
a very conservative estimate then the
Raving to the state In one year would
amount to nearly 2000000 And this
amount expended upon tho roads ot the I
state would give UI many miles oC Im
proved roadways The comparative
cost oC maintaining earth reads Is 18
cents per ton mile and for macadam
roads Scents rer ton mile

SERDArs SESSION
U C 51cHons Paper Shcd Light on
Western Hoads In COlparlon
An interesting event of WednesdaY
afternoon tas the paper of Robert C
Shelton oC Sit Lake on Tho ad I
vantage ot good roads In the eastern I
states as compared with poor roads i
I In tho west Mr Slwlon Is a en
thullaste advocate ot the good roads
mQVmnent and Is perhaps well In
formed on the subject as any man
In the country His paper follows
The numerous evolutions or the
human race since primeval tImes has
marled indelibly lie epochs also the
avenue and transItion from one stage
of civilization to another until tad a
we have real Cll wel as metaphorIcal
hlghwas down through the ages
chronicled In most Instance by na
tunes unerrIng hand either In gradual
ly developed race of the human
family or the silent lombI of beings
or things gone astray from the paths
of progression and advancement oC
condItions and circumstances with
which they were environed
Savagery left its footprint to ho
succeeded by culture and refinements
each had its pathway thIther through
the minds ot the philosopher or the
jungles of unexplored contnont
where footpaths were al sufficient
there being no ychlelesno roads
woro needed Succeeding thee conl
tons crude wheels required power to
draw thema stage onward through
thIckets mountalns deserts and
plains gave way for passage and
more convenient transit front place to
place l nnl animals tamed and
mado to bear the burden of draft
marked nother step toward the
various civilizations of the world
Roads are built because they arc
needed Why arc they needed 7
First beeauso existing conditions of
civilization Jlavo ever demanded the
avenues through which lfes neees
slt can bo transported
Second wealth demands the high
way upon whIch pleasure sightseeing
and mirth may bo gratified
EARLY ROADS
Under such conditIons tho task Is
comparatively easy but back oC all this
Is the pressing necessity for good roads
hence their constructIon Necessity In
cal times Impeled the construction
oC reads as In tho case of the Great
rons
Cumberland highway undertaken by
the government In 1793 or thereabouts
running from the Atlantic through
Pennsylvania Ohio Indiana and haY
log for Its objective point the Missis
sippi river at St Luis The motive
behind the project to build the UnIon
Pacific railroad was quite different In
the former case the cotton of the
southern states sought delivery at
northern mIls and the Infcaslbll ot
transporting product from Atlanta
Mobile and New Orleans made I Im
pelatvo that a road or avenue oC some
kind bo built to haul the commodities
to and from the distant extremes In
the case of the Union Pacific rail
road there was no congoton of com
merce demanding its construction but
beyond the then populous portion ot
the United States lay the golden west
ald awakened by the spirit or prog
ress already wel under way In thu
east enterprise adventure and fortune
Ilvlted the promoter to forge ahead
and possess the grct western empire
then unclaimed and unsurvcyed Ever
since the uniting of the rails on Prom
ontory mountain Utah the subject of
roadbuiding In the United States lies
had a dIfferent phase The Pacific
ocean has been landing on our west
ern shores her rich oriental cargoes
which with dispatch have gene over
land to the eastern centers augment
Ing population to an abnormal extent
In some cities and localities where
as a necessity good roads had to bo
built to make possible travel to and
from farm and factory with lCes
necessities We observe then that an
era ot reclaIming the latent wealth or
this contInent hal dawned and fasten
ed itself upon the present elvl17ton
of the world including mOlt con
spicuously the Iroat western empire of
North AmerIca
WHAT A HORSE CAN DO
On the poorest of earth roads nol
muddy but sandy a horse can draw
twIce as much as ho cal carryon his
back on a Call road three and ono
halt times a much on 0 good macd
amized road nine times as much on 0
smooth plank road 25 times as much
on n Dtono traekwny 36 times 88 much
and on metal rails G 4 times as much
Comparing then eastern roads wit
western roads W6 must tale sides with
ourselves und claim that for each mile
of road In Ithodo Island tlero arc 18
people to build fnll pay for such mile ot
road the District or Columbia 149
people to each mile Massachusetts has
16 to each mile New Jersey 12 Ohio
69 Vth has 8 Poollo to each mie
Idaho 5 WyomIng 8 Colorado I
Nevada 3
Yo are entitled to conclude then
that if a horse can draw on a 11cl
amlzed road nine times I much as on
sand or In mud that while Idaho Wy
omlng Colorado Nevada and Utah are
hauling with dlfeulty ono ton eastern
people can haul nine tons The arg
ment docs not stop here for to haul
nine toils we require nine men nine
wagons nine teams nno hares
ellulpmentl nine times the expense ot
feeing horses wales for nine men
and the expense oC upkeep to same
Added to this Is the nceelemtc dl8al
vantage of market and tIme oC transit
all being vital considerations
God roads of the eastern states at
Cord the farmer ready necess to tim
early season and early morning mar
kets add annually to his net prosperi
ty while hIs neighbor remote from
such rnd raises nothing marketable
hence nothing represents his annual
net earning
HAULING SUGAR BEETS
Last year Utah and Idaho produced
660000 tons of sugar bet which when
roilned made approxImatelY 1900
relned
the price
pounds of sugar Deducting
paid the farmers for each ton oC beets
raised Il cost Utah and Idaho nine
transport this crop
UmeN as much to trnsprt
as It would have cost Massachusetts
