NO ASSISTANCE, NO RAILROAD.
What Must Be Done to Secure a Line to Salt Lake. The Situation Outlined by a Man Who Is Informed. A Review of What Hat Been Done In Salt Lake, and a Statement of What Should Be Done In Los Angeles., Mr. C. 0. Whittemore, of the Salt Lake chamber of commerce committee on railways, is in the city and yesterday made the following statement about the mnch-talked-of railroad to Salt Lake City from this point: "Mr. Whittemore, you have now de voted your spare time for the past two months to investigating the Los Angeles end of the Salt Lake and Los Angeles railway proposition ; would you kindly give the Herald readers a statement of the condition of affairs in reference to that proposed railway as you have found them, and also the present status of the project at the Salt Lake end of the line?" The gentleman replied: "I am deeply interested in this enterprise and will gladly furnish the people of Los Angelea with any information I may possess in regard to the same, hoping thereby to aid this great project by creating a re newed interest in it. "First as to the situation in Salt Lake City. There are four atrong railway corporations in existence in Salt Luke city that have hopes of ultimately reach ing the Pacific coast with their respec tive lines. "The pioneer in thia respect is the Union Pacific Kailway company, which has already constructed ita line to Milford.aa indicated on this accompany ing map which I will give you, and haa expended about $1,500,000 in construct ing a roadbed ready for ties and rails to Pioche, which leaves a gap of less than 350 miles for them to fill to connect with the Atlantic and Pacific at Barstow. But thia connection will never be made until the Union Pacific can satisfactorily adjust its indebtedness with Uncle Sam, which result will not be accomplished for aome years to come ii we are to judge from the results of paat efforts in ths.t line. "Therefore, it ia useless for people here to entertain any hopes that the linea of the Union Pacific will reach this fair city inside of five yeare, and I think five years more can be safely added to that time before they reach here. "The next in order ia the Denver and Kio Grande Western Railway company, whose linea have been extended in this direction to Tintic, a distance of about 100 miles from Bait Lake, but this work has been stopped, and there is every reason to believe that the Southern Pa cific has fastened its grip upon thia com pany, thereby stopping work in that di rection, and if anyone can tell me when the Southern Pacific will let go its grip on anything it once gets hold of, and paiticulariy tho grip it has on Southern California, J will teil that man when the Denver aud Uio,Grande Western will extend its linsj to thia coast. "The thirj of the railway incorpora tjojuj ref tred to hf me i« tbe Salt Luke End Los Angelea Kailway company, an i incorporation organized in Salt Like City about one year ago, by some of that city's solidest men. Thia company has built a line westward a distance of about 22 miles, to the Great Salt lake, at a coot cf about $150,000; tbe company oaa purchased one of the lateßt improved Baldwin locomotives and has an equip ment of a number of freight and passen ger care. The company ia now engaged in buildine; an immense wharf and bathing resort on the shores of the fa mous inland sea, that will coßt $1150,000. The company will doubtleßS confine itself to the latter enterprise for the next two or three years, unless they se cure substantial inducements to move for the west at an earlier period. "The last of the four corporations mentioned by me ia the Great Salt Lake and Hot Springs Railway company, a iunp of whose proposed line to San Francisco I herewith submit to you. This company waa originally organized to build a local line between Salt Lake City and the famous hot Bulphur springs, about five miles from the city, but ita linea have been extended to several adjoining towns and the com pany haa been recently reincorporated with a view to building to the great coal fields at Coalville, and ultimately to the Pacific coaat, having in view at pres ent San Francisco as its terminus. The company will have ita line to the coal fieldß completed inside of one year, and could then be induced to push west ward, not for San Francisco but for Los Angeles, if the right kiud of encourage ment waa given at this end. But unions such encouragement ia offered, this line, when it is built, will take the course in dicated by the lower heavy black line on the map, and reach San Francisco in stead of Los Angelea. This ia the condi tion of affairs at present existing in Salt Lake City with reference to the much talked-of and greatly desired railway connection between the two queen cities of our great western empire. "The situation here ia still worse. Tho whole of Southern California, that great country whose climate, wealth and re sources is not excelled in tbe entire world, iB held in the grasp of two rail way systems, whose power and influence in keeping out rivals can hardly be com prehended. "Very likely tbe atockboldera and owners of these two svstema are of tbe opinion that they were instrumental in building up thia country, and think they therefore should own and control it. "That the Southern Pacific and Santa Fe railway Bystems have greatly BBBiated in bringing ahout the present prosper oua state of affairs in thia region, there can be no doubt, but it is equally cer tain, however, that they have already How We Grow Old.

If they are al owed to occupy the field by tbenuelves for tbe next ten years the growth of this part of the country will be less than half what it otherwise would be. "Here you have only one corporation organized for the purpose of aiding in making the connection between Los An gelea and Salt Lake, viz., the Loa An gelea Terminal railway company . This company haa, in my judgment, a foun dation laid that would enable them to build this line if tbey were urged, en couraged and aided in the enterprise by a quarter of a million people who make up the population of Southern California. I put it Southern California for the rea son that the road to Salt Lake should not be considered a Lob Angelea or San Diego proposition only. The aim and object of every city, town and village lying aouth of the T-hacuipi mountaina should be to aid and assist in building such a line, because the wealth, prosper ity and population that will follow in the works of this road will bedistriouted over the entire country mentioned. "From the fUregoing it must be evi dent to the ordinary mind that Salt Lake and Loa Angelea will not be con nected by a railroad unless the people who will receive the moat benefit, from such a road give tbe enterprise aid and assistance in proportion to the extent that tbey will be benefited.

"How much do you suppose the pros perity, comfort and happiness of the people of Los Angeles depends upon railways?"" "Duriug the year 1892 the people of this city alone depended upon railways to bring from the east for their use over 1,000,000 pounds of agricultural imple ments, 75,000 pounds of ham and bacon, 750 000 pounds of boots and shoes, 300, --000 of butter. 400,000 pounds of carpets, 250,000 pounds of clothing, 300,000 pounds of coffee, 1.500,000 of dry goods, 500 000 pounds of furnishing goods, 1,000,000 potindj of glassware, 1,500,000 of hardware, 3,000,000 of household goods, 7,000,000 pounds of iron, 250,000 pounds of lard, 750,000 pounds of drugs, and proportionate amounts of 75 otber articles, all essential in making up the list of articles used in daily life, making a yrand total of more than 50,000,000 pound* of this kind of freight shipped to Lob Angeles. And this does not in clude coal and like articles, that are brought here by water, bu; which would come from the east with a new railway. "During the same period the people of Southern California depended upon the railways to ship eaßt mors than 450,000, --000 poundu of oranges, lemons, raisins and other fruits, vegetables, wool, wine and various otber products. "During the year 1802 the Santa Fe carried 025,025 passengers to and from California. "These figures give you some idea of what vast importance a new railroad line is to this part of the country. A new railroad line would mean lower freight and panenger rates for thiß tre mendous volume of business, resulting in a saving of at $1,000,000 each year. A new railway here would moan that, instead of importing boots, shoes, glass ware, hardware, and dozens of such articles as you do now, they could be manufactured here with the cheap coal that such a road would bring, aud in this way $1,000,000 could be retained each year by the people of Los Augeles that is now eeut away. Upon this sub ject the Los Augeles chamber of com merce makes the following statement in its argument submitted to the San Pe dro harbor commission: 'In the line of manufactures Southorn California is somewhat backward, largely due to the cost of fuel, labor and transportation, and the high rates paid for money. But these obstacles are being rapidly re moved.' The labor and money obsta cles have already been removed, and the high fuel and transportation obsta cles will he removed when the people of this city and the other cities and coun ties in Southern California take enough interest in having them removed to offer encouragement and assistance to some corporation who will give them SAT«nty-Flvo C'onvalslom.

LOS ANGELES HERALD: SATURDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 25, 1803. another transcontinental railway, and not until then. And yet the years are allowed to roll by, and apparently no effort is made to accomplish this great object, which Bhould be first and fore most in the minds of all persons inter ested in the welfare and prosper ity of this magnificent city and country, but which seems to re ceive the least attention of anything. A new railway line would place Los Angeles 350 miles nearer Chi cago, New York, Boston and all the great cities of the east, which moans a saving of both time and money. The map sub mitted herewith shows the railroads tbat have beeu constructed to the Pacific coast in black lines, and the new roads that have been surveyed to San Francis co in dotted lines, A and B; to Los An geles, C, D, E: and Ban Diego F. The line from Salt Lake to San Francisco would be about 8-50 miles long, and a climb of 7000 feet would have to be made if Beckwith pass waß selected, or 5200 feet by way of some other pace, while the linn from Salt Lake to Los Angeles would be about 050 miles long and would require a climb of less than 2000 feet. By comparing the dotted lines on the map with the straight lines drawn between Salt Lake and Los An geleß it will be seen that it is possible to construct almost an air line between these two cities. The line from Salt Lake to San Diego ia of about the same length as the one to Los Angeles. What can we do that will assure the building of thU road at once ia a question often aeked by people here, which can be read ily answered by atating that a caeh bo nus of a million dollars, just about one half of which would be saved the firet year, would bring thit road; or the pur- chaee by the six counties of Southern California of a million dollars each of the bonds issued by the corporation under taking to build the road would insure its completion within two yeare; or the guarantee by tbe counties named of the interest for five yearß on the bonds necessary to be issued to construct the line would carry the enterprise through. "Some railway corporation must he induced to build this road by having fi nancial assistance nrovided at both ends or it will not be undertaken for years. The two lines that now have control of the situation will keep out any compe tition that does not receive assistance." "What is being done here to encour age the building oi this road?" "Absolutely nothing. A great deal of talk is indulged in and hopes expressed tbat tbe road will soon be here, but that does not build railways. "A resolution has been introduced in your assembly providing for an amend ment to the state constitution allowing the legislature to enact laws enabling counties to assist and encourage rail ways. And a bill has been introduced in the state senate allowing counties to construct, operate and lease railway lines. "The passage of either of these bills would form a solution of tbe problem, but neither one will pass unless this part of the state take enough interest in the matter to have them crowded through. "I sorely hope that the present state of affaire will not exist long, but that the people in this sunny clime will soon awake to a realization of the fact tbat they will not get this new railway line inside of 10 years unless they help to build it." SOCIETY. The bright, warm sunshine and the balmy air of Wednesday, the 22d met., lured many from tho city to enjoy the beauties and the gladness of nature. Among other resorts visited by various parties tho Devil's Gate, near Pasadena, was the scene of animation and gaiety, caused by the presence of a goodly num ber of people from Los Angeles and Pas adena ; and among those who were there none were happier or jollier than a party of 32 young people from Los Angeles, which filled Budinger'e fine tally-ho as well as three surreys. After a pleasant ride the gate wae reached about 11 a.m., and after a shady place had been select ed and the well filled baskets had been unpacked tbey all fell to, and in a short space of time the bountiful lunch pro vided by the ladies had melted away and disappeared like mist before the morning sun. Their hunger being ap peased each one followed the inclination of his own sweet will in trying to make tbe afternoon pass pleasantly. The ride home was by way of the Raymond hotel, the Old Mission, San Gabriel aud Alhambra. The following rode in the tally-ho: Misses Jennie Corliss, Annie, May and Frances Hughes, Nannie Love, Edith Griffith. Ida Russ, Emily Mc- Millan, Josie Knight, Laura Barns. Elva Tallman, Messrs.

Witnesses Examined in the Keg-el Case. Note, of Oases on Trial Yester day—New Bnlta Which Were Filed. The trial of Henry Kegel for the al leged murder of hia wife waa resumed before Judge Smith and a jury in de partment one yesterday morning. The first witness called was Dr. M.M. Kannon. who testified that he attended Mrs. Kegel at the county hospital in tho latter part of July, 1887. He discovered she was suffering from the fracture of two ribs, which had punctured a lung, causing internal hemorrage, which was the immediate cause of death. Before her decease she informed him that ehe had been knocked down by Hall, who, she declared, had caused the injuries she was then suffering from. John Nelson was then sworn and gave evidence to the effect tbat he worked as hired man for Kegel up to the Saturday preceding Mrs. Kegel's demise, when tie left and came to town. On the Friday before ho left Mr. and Mre. Kegel canio to town, and returned to the ranch late nt night. He saw them before they re tired, and Mis. Kegel waß then in good health. Next morning he saw her again and she complained to him of having several ribs broken, but did not say who did it. Mrs. Jane Murnane being sworn, said she saw Mrs. Kegel the Saturday noon preceding her death ; when Bhe waa at San ftrnando with Nelson, she noticed Mra. Krtgel waß walking lame, but de ceaoed said nothing abont injuries hav ing been received. On beinu shown her testimony in the lower court, in which she stated Mrs. Kegel had told her her ribs were broken, witness promptly de nied she had so testified, and that was immediately excused. Valentine Mann was the next witnesa. He testified tbat in 1889 Kegel came to him and, saying be was in trouble, asked him for the loan of some money, and in consideration of his deeding all his prop erty to him witness loaned him the re quired amount, and lived on the prop erty for a year or more in com pany with Kegel. When askod aa to whether he bad ever had any conversation with Kegel as to hie , wife's death, and why he, Ke»el, had accused Hall of having caused the same, when every one knew Hail was at tho time at San Fernando, Kegel told him that his wife had such an aversion to Hall that ehe was easily prevailed upon to declaro him the cause of her death, and he hud to do it in order to clear himself from suspicion. He further eaid that he was glad that she was dead, as she would have cer tainly ruined him il he had not got rid of her. At tbat time lie was friendly with Hall, and had not cqpeated thia conversation until the year lf?Ul, when he had a dispute with Kegel. He theu told it to Hall and /;ens, but immedi ately regretted doing ao, and endeavored to hush tbe matter up, hia reason for ao doing b"inc, ihat on crc&ttQetihg tha matter, he concluded, Kegel had made the confeasion to him in confi dence, and that on tbat account his confidence ehould ho respected. He had also told Justice Bartholomew. Witness frankly admitted that he would not have appeared as a witness in this case had he not been compelled to do so, he having been put under bonds to insure his presence. Oa crosß examination, Mann acknowledged that there had been ill feeling between Kegel and himself, on account of money mat ters, which had been accentuated by a shooting scrape in which they had both been concerned, and which resulted in acomolaint being sworn to by him,charg ing Kegel with an attempt to murder the witness, which complaint he, the witness, afterwa'ds withdrew. He also said that Kegel was a dangerous man and had threatened to kill both witness and Hall, and that it was in order to get him out of the country that he had sworn to the complaint. Ho also declared that so far from being embit tered toward Kegel, he had on several occasions befriended him, notably on one occasion, when Kegel wks charged with Bhooting at Hall, and witness had paid a lawyer's expenses to defend Kegel, thereby in his, witness's, opinion saving him from tho penitentiary. John Zens, who was nsxt examined, said ho lived near the other parties in Tejunga, about half a mile from Kegel's place. When asked as to whether ho had ever talked about Mrs. Kegel's death to either Hall or Mann witness said he had never done so. He remembered testi fying at the preliminary examination of the defendant, Kegel, to the effect that Kegel had said he waß glad his wife was dead. Ho knew nothing further about tbe woman'B death. Thomas Riley was then called and de clared himself a resident of Tejuuga. He said that on the Friday before Mrs. Kegel received her injuries he was in J.os Angeles as a witness in a cass in the justice court in which Kegel aud bil wife were interested ; lie did not remem ber what the case was for, but thought it was concerning the ownership of a cow. At the conclusion of the hearing witneßß left the court room at the Barno time as the defendant and his wife. Oa reaching the sidewalk Kegel accused his wife of losing the cisc for him, and after vilely abusing and cursing her, said: "I will soon be even with you ; you will not trouble me much longer." He saw them drive home to gether, witness returning himself next, morning. That same miming he was vißited by NeUon, Kegel's hired man. Looking Forward.

Kegel was hurt. On crose-examination it wae elicited that Nelson bad told the witnesß that Kegel had broken his wife's ribs, and that he did not dare live with bim any longer. Witness then denied hie evi dence in the lower court, to the effect that he had been told by Mrs. Kegel 10 montbe before her death that she had been wounded by her huaband. Judge Owenn then being called and aworn, said that in October of last year, while serving as justice of the peace, be examined IL Kegel on the charge of murdering hia wife, and that he remem bered Mrs. Jane Murnane testifying to a conversation between herself and Mrß. Kegel, in which the deceased had spoken of previous injuries inflicted by her hua band. At thia point the court adjourned un til this morning, several witnesses for the people not being present. DONEGAN'S COMPLAINT. Ho Sues the City to Compel the Fulfill ment of a Contract. A complaint wsb filed today by D, F. Donegan against the city of Los Angeles and J. W. Drown, street superintendent, in order to compel the latter to carry out tbe terms of a contract between Donegan and this city, on January 21, 1889, awarding Donegan the contract for grading, graveling and curbing First street, from the west line of Fort street to the east line of Orand avenue. Plaintiff complains that although the contract bad been made with him the street superintendent refused to honor the contract, alleging as hia reason for so doing that the property owners on First street were unwilling to bear the cost of the grading. He also says that the superintendent had been instructed by the council to enter into the contract with him, and a sum of $1500 was transferred to the First-street paving fund for that pur pose. Still in spite of all this, and al though he had completed the work, he had been unable to receive payment. He thereiorc brings suit for the Bum of foOOO. ' Court Notes. In the caße of Mrs. M.
