The Salt Lake clearing house works ad
mirably said C L Hawley the efficient
manager When I entered the Kansas
City clearing house a mere boy seven
years ago the business did not compare
with what this city is now doing and yet
Kansas City stands tenth in the list among
American cities The Now York clearing
house is tho wonder of the won being
larger than those of London and all Euro
pean cities combined It is notknown when
the London clearing house started though
It was in operation a century ago The New
York house started in 1S5G and was the
first in the United States with fiftyfiv
banks and now has but sixtyfive
there were 15X tons of gold paid
into the New York clearing house in
one day which gives a pretty good idea of
through the enormous transactions that pas

Salt Lake and Denver
I have got back from Denver said Mr
McKaig of tho Union Land company yes
terday Iad you may put me down as say
Ing that Salt Lake is getting a black eye
j J there from the manipulations of some one
who has been pushing addition known as
Salt Marsh or something of that kind r
whch they could not get a drop of I
to save their necks Plenty of these lot
were sold from 50 tolO0 and it has just
come out that they r emphatically N G
Naturally it has hurt the eligible classes of
land and though there is any amount of
talk about Salt Lake and I can say not a
little jealousy besides they are very cau
tious about what they buy and look at a
dollar a long time before they part with
New Cigar Factory
I a getting ready to build a cigar
factory on my lot on Third South near the

About Insurance
What about tho Home Life Insurance
company winding up its affairs and going
out of business said a HERALD reporter
L VjcePresidcnt Grant on Saturday
What about it 1 repeated the gentle I
man why nothing There have been ru
mors of that nature for some time and at a
recent meeting of the board the matter was
called up and the proposition to discon
tinue was unanimously and emphatically
rotcd down Why should we go out of
business Mr Grant asked lA year ago
the Homo Lifo started out with a capital of
flOO000 and today its assets amount t
130000 and this is estimating tho half in
terest in the Salt
trcstin Sat Lako theatre a worth
l 50000 whereas I regard that prop
1 o
I erty as worth nearly double the sum
named Besides the increase of assets dur
ing the year we have paid a dividend
san ith such a record for the first year it is
not likely that the company will quit busi
ness and go out of existence
That matter being settled and in a man
I ner most pleasing to the public the re
porter asked Mr Grant if there were any
special features in life insurance in his
company and i so what they were
Decidedly there are special features
said Mr Grant One of these is that we
charge the same rates for insurance as are
asked by first class companies of the east
and doing this we assume that the prefer
ence will be given to our company by those
who believe in subtaininghoine enterprises
and building up the country Our money
is invested here and not sent to New York
or elsewhere to enrich other cities Isnt
it better to keep the money at home than
send it abroad Isnt that special feature
a good one We think so and we also
think it is only a matter of a little time
when home people generally will agree
with us that i is wise t patronize home
institutions and homo enterprises in pref
erence to outside concerns
And the busy insurance man sped on his
way while the man of items pocketed his
Faber glad that he had gathered material
for another interesting item for SUNDAY

In a business sense there has been little
now since our report of a week ago in
these columns The inauguration and suc
cessful operation of the clearing house has
been the one event of importance and is
another big stride in the right direction
Unseasonable weather retards many lines
of business and spring goods have not
gone out as freely as during the week pre
vious The volume of business on the
whole however is very satisfactory
Conference while it does
hie not mean what
it once did when our country friends pur
chased in Salt Lake supplies to carry them
six months at a time has had an enliven
ing effect and many thousands of dollars
will be dropped here ere closes
The committee on membership of the
chamber of commerce has been very ener
getic and as a result many new names
have been added t the roll Secretary
Gillespie says that no man has been ap
proached with the idea that his name would
swell tho list but rather because it was
considered that ho would be 1 workerand
that is what the body now needs It now
looks as though the membership would be
increased to between 400 and 500 With
that number enrolled tho chamber will
become a power that few can resist I
there ever was a time in the history of the 1
city when such an organization was needed
when intelligent work was absolutely
necessary it is the present
The real estate market is by some charac
terized as dull yet the daily transfers do
not coincide with that opinion

boom First South Second South Main
West Temple and other business streets
are alive with members of the tinbucket
brigade who are building monuments to
the progress and enterprise of many of our
moneyed citizens
Lead and Sliver
Lead in New York has been dull and neg
lected and without any pressure of sales
prices have graduallygiven way Tho fol
lowing paragraph appeared in a late New
York paper Six lead manufacturing
companies consolidated their interests yes
terday by sinking their several individual
identities and merging them into a new
corporation to be known as the National
Lead and Oil company with a capital of
1 1000000 All these concerns were pre
viously members of the National Lead trust
and the new consolidation is a sort of trust
within a trust This action is taken so the
promoters say simply for the purpose of
section economy in production and distri
bution of products The companies which
have consolidated with the new National
Lead and Oil company each with a repre
sentative and the board of trustees are
the following all in this city and its vicin
ity Brooklyn White Lead company the
Lenox Smelting company the George
White Lead company the Ulster Lead com
pany the Union White Lead rnnpany and
New York Lead company r1mpanyand
In Chicago more business has been doing
but at slightly lower prices
In St Louis lead has been quiet but
rather firm The productions of pig lead

of ore shipped from this claimone ore body
alone yielding 780000 worth of ore Too

The Dutchman has been a constant pro
ducer ever since 1871 though work has
been suspended awaiting the putting in of
pumps and other improvements The I
Omaha Smelting company are the owners
The Austin mine owned by John Tier
nan of Salt Lake is another good pros
pect that contains rich ore scattered
through a very wide vein There needs but
a concentrator to render this a fine paying
The Queen of the West the property of
J McVicker is another excellent claim
The Milkmaid owned by F D Chit
James Chipman and H W Owens has
shipped some 400 tons of ore There are
some 150 feet of an incline shaft and over
200 feet of drifts all showing ore Tho
owners are now running a tunnel to tap tho
shaft and when this is completed shipping
will be resumed

Provo Slate Mines
Last Saturday a lease of the Mammoth
Lode Slate mine situated about one and
one half miles from the mouth of Slate
cafion east of Provo was consummated
between parties in Provo and a syndicate
of Colorado capitalists
The mine is 1500 feet in length by 600 in
width consisting of somo very superior
slate ore which will bo rapidly developed
by the parties leasing the mine and slate
for roofing purposes placed on tho market
at an early date They have already con
tracts to furnish roofing for buildings in
Provo inside of sixty days
Messrs R S Hines A O Sinoot jrW
C I A Smoot jr Joseph F Thompson and
Joseph McEwan the owners of the mine
are to receive a royalty of 10 per cent on
all products taken from the claim or if tho
parties leasing the mine shall wish to pur
chase it they may do so before the expira
tion of the lease which is drawn up for
two years by paying for it the sum of
20Work is progressing finely on the Mam
mouth Lode and the parties leasing the
mine seem satisfied that they have secured
a good thing Tho gentlemen signing the
contract with local parties are John F
Jones David R Roberts and John W
Thomas but it is understood that they are
agents acting in behalf of the Colorado
syndicate These gentlemen are also super
vising the work
The Enquirer wishes the enterprise suc
cess which it will undoubtedly meet with
for in Utah there is a largo fda opened to
works of this kind not to mention the
whole of tho intermountain region that
may become a market if the slate industry
is properly developed Enquirer
Rich Finds Near Provo
Probably ono of the v most valuable dis
coveries of gold deposits ever made in Utah
is that of Mr Henry Shafer an old Cali
fornia miner in the cafion about two miles
east of Provo city From the occasional
discovery of rich flQafin that vicinity n
ears past it was long ago conjectured that
valuable deposits of tho precious metal
were somewhere in this favored region but
it was reserved for the old CalifornianMr
Shafer to locate its exact whereabouts
and make the claim which he has recently
done He has discovered where a large bed
of ore crops out of the gulch which essays
over 500 to the ton ithljieces much richer
still By experienced miners his claim is
regarded as immensely rich and it is likely
that operations on a large scale will bq4be
gun upon it as soon as the spring is a little
further advanced so that no difficulties will
be encountered in the way of snow The
importance of the discovery needs no puff
ing it will speak for itef aud in no un
certain terms and that too very soon I
means a great boom for Provo and 1 new
source of wealth and business activity
On Monday last Prof R J Kroupa gen
eral manager of the Ozokerite Mining com
pany was in this city looking for laborers
to open operations at the companys mines
at Soldier Summit He found labor already
scarce and it seems likely that the demand
will be greater than the supply Gazette

The Broad Gauging of the Ria
Grande Western
Four Big Trunk lines Heading This Way
Interesting Interview wlthS V Der
rali of the Missouri Pacific
SaltJLakeis of sufficient importance to
attract the great trunk lines
When a city becomes great enough to
command the railroads to seek it it has
passed the critical point in its history
The broad gauging of the Rio Grando
Western means so much for this city thac
the day its standard trains run into that
depot should be celebrated with jubilee
It not only means the Rio Grande Vest
ern but three or four other trunk lines run
ning their solid trains into this city ru
A HERALD reporter called at the office of
S V ofc
Derrah freight and passenger agent
of the Missouri Pacific to learn the plans
of that company
There is Colorado and here is Salft
Lake said Mr DerraL unfolding a Ria
Grande Western map and setting ono
finger on Pueblo and the other at Salt
Lake Pueblo said he is tho
present terminus of tho Missouri
Pacilic though the close relations
between Gould and tho Denver Ria
Grande enable us to do a big business over
its tracks to Denver There is strong prob
ability of the same friendly relations being
extended to this city and that the Missouri
Pacific trains will come hero via Grand
ca Son Leadville Aspen and over the joint
tracks of the Denver Rio Grande and Col
on tdo Midland to Grand Junction whera
they will strike the Rio Grande Western
which will be a standard gauge by about
the 1st of July All of our California busi
ness will then go through Salt Lake in
stead of over the Texas Pacific Mr
GOld is very favorably impressed with this
country sinco his trip to Pueblo a year ago
Tho Rock Island now ends at Colorado
Springs and they can run over the Midland
to Newcastle and over tho joint track
to Grand Junction and to this
city Then the Burlneton Missouri
River whose Colorado terminus Is lIssotrl
ver will probably work their Utah business
via Colorado Springs The Santa Fo
which is now at Pueblo will probably come
here over tho same tracks a the Missouri
Pacific Missour
The Rio Grande has four
powerful feed
ers and rather than force a rival road to
build its own line will no doubt make such
a liberal I traffic arrangement that there will
be no object in the other roads going to tho
expense of building lines of loin
