H SUilSCIUl'TIOX H Ono Year $2.00 H Six Moutns 1,25 H Entered 13 Socona-Clnss Matter at H font Office .it American PorV, Utah, H " ' " LLH W. H. Ellsworth, Editor nnd Manager. M THE PROPOSED MILL H While it is not the disposi- lion of this newspaper to dis- H courage industrial expansion, 1 but on the contrary every ,ef- 1 fort will be made to help in H the development of resources, H it would be wise for those who H arc interested in the organin- M lion of the company to build H and operate a new flouring H mill to consider the matter 1 M seriously from all angles be- 1 fore taking the final step to- M ward construction. H Home very excellent advice H was offered to the farmers in- H tcrestcd in th new orgaui.a- M " tion last Tuesday by Murk It H Greene, Utah representative of 1 H the United States Grain cor-, H poration, who is )ovhaps more, M thoroughly in touch with the, M market situation than any olli- M r grain man in the west", lie 1 has inade a study of the niill- H ing situation from every view M point. Ho explained to the H farmers that the market at this M time is not large enough to M a l):-,o rh all of the flour now H being milled, and that the H mills of Utah arc not in a posi- B tion to compete witli eastern m or coast mills because of the H discrimination in freight rates. H it the )'rescnt time the east- H urn flour mills can place flour H in Utah at a lower cost than H the Utah millers can lay it H down in the eastern cities, and H uth freight rates in their fa- H vor they can sell at a lower H rate to the eastern jobber and H wlmk-salor, thus closing tho H marl els to any of the western J With on) mill in American H Fork there is now nmplot fa- H vimy for the grinding of all H local wheat. It would seem H that it would bo a better plan H for the farmers who nro inlcr- 1 l''uJ in organizing the new M milling company to co-operate H v. i'.li the exisiting mill, rather H than to enter into competition. H It would seem that this might M be feasible. LLaLH " . M THE PAVING QUESTION. H There is a great deal of prido H among the people of American H Work, and the Main street H property owners do not take H Icindly to the proposition of H the Salt Lake and Utah rail- H road company asking for per- H mission to gravel the railroad H right of way. Sentiment ap- H pears to favor conplcte con- H ereting, and it is not unreason- H able to insist that the railroad H company do its share of the H paving in the most acceptable BQ Surely, in view of the fact tffl that the railroad eoin)any is H njoying a valuable franchise H through the Main street of the H city absolutely without cost, H he officials of that road should H lay aside technicalities for the H time and join with the citizens H nf American Fork in making H this a "city beautiful." H It was claimed by Mr. T. M. H Oreui, at the meeting last H Thursday night, that the build- H ing of a concrete road along H the right of wny would not H in any -way havo a tendency H to bring increased trafliu to H the road. This is illogical and M inconsistent. In the natural H course of events American H Fork will grow. It will grow H faster if it puts its best foot H forward and shows that it is H progressive. Progress in inun- H icipal affairs is best reflected H by permanent improvements, H Miieli na paved streets, street H lighting, water su)ply and snn- H itary establishment. The first) H step is pnved slroots. Increased H population will briiur inereas- H ed traffic and tho greatest pro-l H fit will bo reaped by tho tran-' H sportation company talcing tho ' m people to and fiom tho city.
