The Rapid Growth of a Hugo Salt
Lake Industry
A meeting of the stockholders of the
Cooperative Wagon and Machine Com
pany was held at the offices of the com
pariyyesterday President H J Grant
read a very satisfactory report ofthe
condition of the company giving an
account of the earnings and expend
itures for the last ten months Th
sales during that period l at Ogden and
Salt Lake have reached 300000 The
stockholders after reducing the value
of their buildings and fixtures and pro
viding liberally in a contingent fund
for probable losses decided to declare a
dividend of 1 per enrper monthpayable
on the 1st dayof February 1887 The
growth of this company has been almost
phenomenal and the condition in
Which they appear at the present time
should certainly be very flattering to
the shareholders They control some
of the best agencies in their linein tile
United States among them the Mit
chell and Bain wagon the John Deere
andMohne plows the Wood and Cham
pion mowing and harvesting macbiues
Oliver and Gale Chilled plows Common
Sense Bob Sleighs and various others
equally as reliable and well known
some idea of their rapid growth
in the last three years can be formed
from a comparison of the annual sales
during that period of course taking
into Consideration their increase of
capital stock Two years agolhe sales
were 60000 one year ago l20000 and
last season they reached the figure

To the Editor of THE HERALD
Having been a subscriber your val
uable paperjfronr1 ffieTfirsfc issue and
knowmgyouT promptness af all tinies
in vindicating the right and giving
space in your columns in the cause of
justice and right I take this oppor
tunity of writing you in relation to the
terrible affair now so prominently be
fore the public jt should Havedone s4
beforebut did not wisHto force my
self before the public I have read two
communications from Mr E L Clark
of Parowan in your paper pertaining
to the ThompsonDalton affair In re
gard to those communications will
say that you and ihe reading public
may place full confidence in every
statement made by Mr Clark as being
correct in every particular as He is a i
man of truth and moral worth I
myself will state that I have Lean
several reliable parties say that they
conversed with Dalton when < rhe was
returning from ArizonaaVd theysay
he told them that he was tired of run
ning around to keep awjiy from the
officers of the law and he would rather
he taken and go to the Penitentiary
and serve out a sentence than to be
forced to live like he had been away
from his friends all the time I my
self talked With him as he passed my
house on his wav home It is looked
upon by all classes of our community
as one of the worst cases of cold blooded
murder that has ever happened
nothing more or less than to shoot
down a man like a dog The fears of
all classes seem to be that justice will be
a farce in this case from the first act of
the Grand Jury going out to meet the
hero of battle and the second act in
indicting for manslauehter after the
statement of so many eyewitnesses to
the affair I think if ever a case was
returned back to a jury agai t this is a
case of thatclass and shouldbe investigated
gated by the nest Grand Jury so as to
give full justice to all parties concerned
in the horrible affair
