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
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
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

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
"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
"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

that being true, tbe people of Southern
California are under no further obliga
tions to these railway corupwies what
ever. 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

"From the fUregoing it must be evi
dent to the ordinary mind that Salt
Lake and Loa Angelea will not be con

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.

"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

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

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

and other fruits, vegetables, wool, wine
and various otber products.

"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

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

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
"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

of affaire will not exist long, but that
the people in this sunny clime will soon

SOME STRONG EVIDENCE GIVEN.
Sensational Testimony in the
Kegel Murder Case.
Contractor Donegan Sups the City
on a Contract Claim.
Witnesses Examined in the Keg-el Case.
Note, of Oases on Trial Yester
day—New Bnlta Which
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
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.

who in a Btate of great excitement asked
him for tbe loan of a dollar in order to
get to Loa Angeles, saying he was afraid
to live with Kegel any longer, and that
Mre. 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,

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.

of previous injuries inflicted by her hua

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

Senator Henry C. NeUon oi New York writes:
"On the 27th o! February, 18HH X was taken
with a violent pain iv tbe region ot the aid-
Beys. 1 suffered such agony thall could hardly
stand up. As soon as possible I applied two
Allcock's Pokous Plasters, one over each
kidney, and laid down. In an hour, to my sur-
I piise and delieut, the pain had vanished and I
waa well. I wore the pl-o :>-rs a eav or u?o
as a precaution, and then removed them. I
have been using Allcock's Porous Plastkiis
in my family tor the last ten jea-s. and have
always found ihem the quickest and besl rem
edy for colds, strains ami rheuma ie afflsotloat.
From my experlouce I believe they ale the best
plasters in the world."
