Committee Work Done
Fifteen Hundred Names to the
No Doubt Tbat a tteneral Law Can Be
EfMayor Workman Who Has Traveled Over
the Route Talks
The Country Is Rich In Iron and Coal Deposits
and the Valleys Are Very
A few of the people interested in the
building of the bait Lake Road started out
yesterday to secure 2000 names to the peti
tion, which will be taken to Sacramento
by the committee of twenty to fortify them
in the fight they will wage at the capitol
to secure the passage of the bill which will
make the construction of the Salt Lake
road possible. Most of the names which
appear upon tiie memorial are of promi
nent influential merchants and business
men, who were pleased at an opportunity
to place themselves on record as favoring
the project.
The list can be found on the counter of
The Herald business office, and every one
should sign it or fill in the blank in this
issue of The Herald. Cut it out and mail
it to The Herald office at once.
Yesterday afternoon the committee ap
pointed at the citizens' mass meeting on
Friday evening, to further the Salt Lake
road project met in the rooms of the
Para Commission in tbe City Hall.
Frank G. Finlayson presided and Nathan
Cole, Jr., acted as secretary.
Mr. Finlayson said that there is no
question but that the meaure desired to be
passed is special legislation, and he
doubted very much if it would stand in
the courts.
"Section 3 of the proposed bill pro
vides," said he, that the trustees and
their successors shall be the trustees of
the said fund, and shall have control and
disbursement of the same, etc." This
seems to be in close conflict with the pro
visions of the Constitution.
In Farwell vs. The County of Los An
geles the Supreme Court held that the pro
visions of the charter of the City of Los
Angeles, directing the Council to appoint
us depositor of the public moneys such
bank as offered highest rate of interest
therefor, and directing the city's money
to be deposited with such bank was in
conflict with Section 13 of Article XL
Tbe court then said: "Carrying out the
intention of Section 13, Section 16 of Ar
ticle 111 provides that all moneys of any
municipal corporation coming into the
hands of any municipal officer thereof
shall immediately be deposited with the
Treasurer, or other legal depository, to the
credit of such city, town or other corpora
tion respectively, for the benefit of the
fund to which they respectively belong.
The said Treasurer is the one "by which
the custodian of public money is usually
designated, and he is a public officer, and
the phrase 'other legal depository,' is
clearly used to designate such public
Officer, whether he be called in any par
ticular municipality Treasurer or by some
other name."
In Davis vs. The City of Los Angeles, it
was held that the provisions of the street
opening act of 1889, providing for a com
mission for assessing the value of property
needed for the street, and to do other
things in connection with tbe opening of
a street was not in contradiction of Sec
tion 13 of Article XI of the Constitution,
because it delegates to special commission
the power to perform municipal functions,
but conceding, without deciding, that the
opening or widening of public highways
within a city are municipal functions, it
does not appear that such functions were
delegated to the commission. The Com
missioners are simply made the agents of
the municipalities to assist them in open
ing streets. They act under the direction
of The city, and their acts are not binding
pr effective until the same are approved
4nd ronfirmed by the City Council. There
fore the act done is the act of the city at
Urge, and not of the Commissioners.
*Bnt tbe board of trustees provided for
by the proposed bill are vested with pow
ers not made subject to the direction of
the county authorities. No provision is
made for an appeal from their acts or
decisions to the Board of Supervisors, and
power to enter into contracts and manage
the construction of the road is taken out
of the legislative body of the county, and
vested in a special commission. The only
power the Board of Supervisors lias is to
put a veto upon the drawing of money
from the fund in the hands of the trus
tees by refusing to pass an order there
Mr. Finlayson said that the proposed
measure would be special legislation and
tho law should be made general. The
difference between the Mathews bill and
the proposed measure is that the former
provides for the construction of a railroad
by a county only within its own limits,
while the latter permits a county to build
a railroad across the whole state.
Mr. Longley said that lie was opposed
to making the law general, ami that he
thought it would be as well to have the
committe decide what to do after it ar
rived at Sacramento,and it was decided to
do so.
Captain Cross stated that the proposed
bill had been forwarded to Asssemblyman
Bulla at Sacramento. He was advised to
introduce it at once, before the expira
tion of the fiftieth day of the session, after
which time it would require a two-thirds
vote to permit any bill to be introduced.
Mr. Longley said that lie had written a
letter to Mr. Bulla on behalf of the citi
zens, telling him to introduce the bill,
ami if it is decided subsequently to make
the measure general it can be amended at
any time.
After a little discussion it was decided
that most of the members of the commit
tee will leave for Sacramento today, and
tbe others will depart tomorrow so that
all tbe members will be on hand Tuesday.
Mr. Davis appeared before the meeting
land stated that nearly every one ap
niroaclied signed the petition favoring the
feialt Lake road, which is to be forwarded
to the capital to fortify our representatives.
In a recent speech J. M. C. Marble dis
cussed the Salt Lake road proposition as
"For years the people of Los Angeles
have been anxious for a railroad to Salt
Lake, and although many of the wealth
iest and best men of the country, influ
ential in railroad circles and in'national
politics, and versed in railroad construc
tion, have been trying for its accomplish
ment, they have so far failed to materi
ialze the railway.
"California now appears to be on the eve
of an important railroad development.
Money is going into subscriptions in the
north part of the state by millions, and
that money they will invest naturally for
the benefit of their communities prim*
rily, not ours.
"No one believes that San Francisco's I
permanent objective is Itukersiield, While
they are moving to better take care of
their San Joaquin valley trade, and ulti
mately secure more transcontinental con
nections. This city should be equally
alive to her interests, and quickly bind to
herself by iron bands such road or roads
as will contribute noil to the importance
and stability of the city; and there is
nothing now presenting so important as
the Salt Lake Railroad.
"This road, aside from its importance
to the city, as a great continental line,
virtually brings to our doors immense
deposits of excellent coal and iron, and
mountains of salt, clear as crystal.
"How can this long cherlened hope be
realized, all usual methods having failed?
This question may be answered easily and
promptly: Adopt the Cincinnati plan,
which has been thoroughly tested. This
plan has been fully published, and no
doubt generally read, making it un
necessary to go into details. It author
izes Cincinnati to borrow a sum equal to
D per cent of the taxable values of the
city,at seven and three-tenths per cent in
terest. This would represent a first levy
nearly HO per cent greater than required,
as the borrowing in this case is based on
S per cent. Under tbe law as presented
the largest levy that can be made for in
terest in any one year is two and one-half
mills. This means that the highest
charge that can be made to maintain the
interest will be 25 cents on every $100 of
the assessed taxation on the county tax
roll. There are less than 800 taxpayers in
this county paying taxes on $10,000 and
over, and less than half a dozen that pay
on a half million or more, so that very
few would have to pay more than fSB
per annum tax for this purpose.
"The growth of wealth would soon
increase the tax rolls, so that the
levy proposed would create a sinking
fluid that would eventually pay the
bonds, were no income derived ' from
operating or leasing the road.
"The chances are that road would be
found so valuable that it would very soon
produce an income more than ample to
pay not only the interest, but create a
sinking fund that would liquidate the
"In tho capo of Cincinnati,the road cost
not far from $7,00(1,000. On its com
pletion it W as leased for twenty-five years.
The amount of rental the first period of
rive years was $812,000 per year; second
period of live years, $012,000 per year;
third period of 'live years, was $1,012,000 I
per year; fourth period of live years, was
$1,112,000 per year; fifth period of five
years, was $1,202,000 per year.
' The fourth period will ho entered on
in 18IJ0, and the hist period represents 5
per cent annual interest on an investment
of $25,000,000, with a surplus of $12,000 per j
annum to pay expenses of the trustees,
whose duties are to collect the rents.
Every other expense is paid by the lessees,
who are bound to maintain the property.
The next lease will undoubtedly be at a
much higher rate. Comment is unnec
essary on such a history.
"The Cincinnati Southern Railroad is
888 miles long, and its cost, averages but
little over $50,000 per mile, being a Very
expensive road to construct. Put little of
it is in Ohio, and the first necessity was a
bridge across one of our greatest rivers, a '
river that varies over seventy feet below
high and low water, a bridge which is j
compelled, by Congress to be carried so j
high as to not obstruct navigation where '
the largest Steamboats are used. The line
is nearly all in Kentucky and Tennessee,
where other expensive bridges are re
quired, as well as great tunnels and heavy
mountain work.
"While the Cincinnati Southern was |
constructed in dear times, and was one
of the most expensive roads in the
country to build, the Hue you propose is
one of the cheapest lines to construct, and
in very cheap times for construction. Tbe
Utah Southern road now has in operation
to Milford 274 miles; there is completed
from Milford this way, ready for the rails,
90 miles; total, 884 miles.
"It is safe to calculate that the persons
wdio have done so much to come this wav
would meet the Los Angeles road halt
way; ami this could he positively assured
before any expenditures were made by tbe
"The figures heretofore given prove that
the taxation could not be oppressive, were
you to conclude that yon would not bor
row but put the whole authorization on
to the duplicate at once. It would only
double your taxes two years, and after
that would largely help to pay your taxes.
So important an improvement that can
be (absolutely built without debt, at so
small a charge, should not be lost. Our
northern neighbors are doing more than
that, voluntarily, now.
"Time is too precious now to waste any
on side issues. All that is being asked
now is a privilege the Legislature should
promptly grant. After they grant the
privilege, it then remains "to be seen
whether the Supervisors can present any
thing to the people that will be safe arid
valuable enough to secure the vote neces
sary to insure the success of the measure,
wdnch is fenced around by every reason
able safeguard to prevent disappointment.
"Should the authorities conclude to
lease the property after it is completed,
there will be no lack of bidders from several
roads now in Salt Lake, and others.
"In the matter of coal alone it is worth
all it costs the county. Coal is now quoted
in Chicago, carried by rail from Ohio,
Virginia and Pennsylvania, a greater dis
tance, at less than $.'i per gross ton. Is
there any reason that it should cost more
here from the Utah fields, a less distance? j
"Or in the matter of passengers, this
line so direct should give us lower rates
and faster time. Forty miles an hour by
this route would reduce the time to two
and one-half dnys between here and Chi
cago; and the time is not far distant
when we shall have faster schedules,
which would give two days on a lifty-mile
schedule to Chicago.
"And in the matter of our present ton
nage, instead of unstable rates that fre
quently change and are placed so high as
to simply let the producer live, We shall I
have steady lower rates that will bring 1
greater tonnage and profit to the roads
and more prosperity to the people, and
the 30,000 car loads of fruit of the State
will not continue to be taxed two or three
times higher than some other things not
so essential that move in less volume."
Ex-Mayor W. H.Workman was seen last
evening by a Herald reporter who freely
told what he knew about the proposed
road, the route which it will take,and the
country through which it will pass.
"In tbe early fifties, I was engaged in
mercantile business in the city and I have
lived here since my boyhood. For
twenty-one years I was in business for
myself and during that time and before
the Union and Central Pacific Railroads
were built, the Mormons did all of their
trading in Los Angeles, carrying their
merchandise overland by means of im
mense "prairie schooners," on ten-mule
teams. At that time they travelled over
almost the same route as one of tbe sur
veys and the one upon which very likely
the Salt Lake road will be built." Large
quantities of merchandise were pur
chased in Los Angeles and transported to
Utah across the country which is attract
ing so much attention at the present time.
This route bad easy grades, and the
travelers were never snowbound ami met
To the Honorable, the Members of the Senate and Assembly ol the Slate of California
Thirty-first Session:
We, the undersigned residents of the county of Los Angeles, do herehy respect,
fully petition yuu to exert every honorable effort to secure the passage of a hil
authorizing and enabling counties to build railroads upon the basis of the plan known
as the Cincinnati plan, as unanimously adopted .it a public meeting held at the
Chamber of Commerce. February 22, 1895.
Name Residence
vith no obstacles from one cml of the
me to the other. There were no noun
mint to cross, and even nt thnt time the
mil.ling of h road over the same country
vas frequently spoken of. The Mormons
were then, and ever since have been, de
sirous of having more immediate connec
tion with Southern California, and look
upon Han Pedro as a natural ocean outlet.
I (irmly believe that when the road is
ipened the merchants' trade of Utah will
ill come to Los Angeles instead of going
to Sun Francisco, New Yo'k and other.
Eastern cities as is at present the case.
Forty years ago they were pleased to trade
here, ami now, With proper railroad facili
ties, that trade will naturally return here.
In that case Log Angeles would be a large
wholesale Center,ana onfl street, lis is now
the ease, could not begin to accommodate
the large wholesale businesses which
would naturally open up.
Believing that a road from Los Angeles
to Halt Luke, having observed what I did
in early days, would eventually be built,
lias Induced me to labor assiduously and
faithfully for tbe construction of the
road. lit 1888 Colonel Isaac Trumbo, a
number of other citizens and myself in
corporated the Los Angeles and Salt Lake
Railroad Company. Colonel Trumbo has
been indefatigable in his efforts to se
cur the road.
"In 18111 I went East over a greater por
tion of the route to satisfy myself in re
gard to the resources that would be de
veloped, taking samples of all kinds of
ores, such as gold and silver, copper, gyp
sum, iron, coul and manganese. I al-o
was across a large mountain of transpar
ent rock salt, which, with proper trans
portation facilities, would yield a large in
come to those who would quarry it.
"I also observed immense quantities—
mountains, in fact—of the finest quality
of building stone, which when once seen
would be in large demand all over the
country. At present most of our building
stone comes from Flagstaff, Arizona, and
when this country is developed the stone
can be imported at a farcheaper rate. The
receiver of the laud office in Salt Lake, to
whom I gave a sample of the rock, named
the mountain upon his map from which
I securea the beautiful piece 'Workman
"What Los Angeles needs is the build
ing of manufactures to give employment
:o skilled mechanics and worthy laborers,
ivbo are always needed to build a large
;ity. To secure these, cheap fuel and raw
material must be obtianable. During my
travels across this almost untraveled coun
try, I found unlimited quantities of the
irery best bituminous coal, which, of
jotirse, only needs mining, and as it is
I'ight, in the face of a mountain, it can he
mined cheaply, and with this road built
it can be landed in Los Angeles at $4 or
t>s a ton. These coal mines are inexhaust
ible, and the coal makes a good quality of
:oke. 1 went into a number of tunnels
ive or six hundred feet deep, made by
the Mormons, and made a critical exam
ination, and I am free to say that the coal
is of the very best quality.
I nitnodiate'ly across the valley and
ibout fifteen miles distant from the coal
nines ami about 100 miles only from the
stty, 1 found mountains of magnetic and
tieniatite iron ore. Some of the magnetic
»r steel iron ore assayed as high as two
per cent. It ran be mined for sonic
;ime at least by simply roiling it down
She mountainside into the cars.
| The iron, like the coal, is almost, Inex
imistiole and OOUld keep iron foundries
n the city supplied for centuries. My
idea is that the iron ore will be put
through furnaces on the ground, made
into pig iron and hauled into town and
made into steel rails and all other articles
from which steel is made in other places.
In ether words. I believe with the road
built, L is Angeles could in time lie made
i second Pittsburg.
"Arriving in the East with these
=amples I have referred to, I laid them
before the most prominent railroad men
in the United States, and they were so
convinced as to the necessity of building
the road that they sent experts over the
line who simply confirmed all I bad said
md shown to them. After the report of
these experts had been received by these
prominent railroad builders they find be-
Qome fully determined upon the construc
tion of the road, and the line would be
in operation today were it not for the
general depression which soon followed.
Another thing which has retarded the
construction is the lack of interest among
tho capitalists at this end of the line.
Wherever 1 went East, they would say,
"Mr. Workman,we believe the road would
be a big investment, but why don't your
jwn people take bold and assist iti an
undertaking which is so important?
"I claim that if the people of Southern
California will show an earnestness and
lid this project, that the road can be
speedily built ami millions of dollars will
be invested Within its borders. The en
terprise is a gigantic one, requiring as it
rloes an immense amount of capital, and,
For this reason, among others, I do not
think that it can be constructed by private
subscription from our people alone.
Therefore, the bond proposition has prac
tically been adopted, and if our present
plans are carried out, it will only be a
year or two until the whistle of the Salt
Lake locomotive is heard within our
"Along this route are innumerable val
leys, of good fertile land, some of which
are settled and many which have been
highly cultivated by industrious Mor
mons. Fruit and alfalfa fields abound,
and by the introduction of a little capit'il
ail these valleys can be transformed into
orchards and cultivated ranches.
"When this road is assured and con
struction begun, every poor man not fear
ing tho present exile, can take up lf>o
acres of fine Government land, and by a
little industry have a little home with "all
tbe comforts of civiliza'ion.
"This will be a veritable poor man's
country and will give this part of the
state a back country, developed and long
needed. The mineral deposits along the
line of the road will give permanent em
ployment to thousands of people, w ho will
naturally spend in Los Angeles the money
they have earned.
"Should not every one in Southern Cal
ifornia exert every endeavor to further an
enterprise which will do so much good for
their section of the state?"
They Favor the Plan of Taxation and Urge
Quick Work
The merchants of Los Angeles are more
than anxious for the Salt Lake railroad.
"You bet I favor the plan of building
the road on the Cincinnati plan," said
Z. T. Parmalea. "It's the only way we
can get the road, and the road we must
have. lam glad The Herald has taken
this position on the qeustion. It needed
only a live newspaper to boom the move
ment to make tbe road go."
"Give us the road by taxation," saidH.
Jevne. "It il the only fair plan for all
the people, We need the road. We must
have it if our city is to go ahead, and the
taxation plan is the best, and surest that
has been offered."
"I favor the Cincinnati plan, as it is
called," said L. Jacoby of Jacohy Bros.
"It is the one and only plan that will
build the road. We are in hearty sym
pathy with the movement. We cannot
get too many railroads."
"By all means let Los Angeles build

"Count us in on the taxation plan,

"Tax the people to build the road and

and if a bill to build the Salt Lake road
by taxing the people can be passed, why
the sooner it is done the better."
"I favor the plan; indeed I do. I want

road In the right way, namely, by taxa

chants called upon. They said: "I'm too
busy to talk, but I'm in favor of the road
and the plan. Let us build the road."
