It goes without saying that the week has
i been a most satisfactory one in busincss
Vcirclcs With the activity in building the
street car movements and the thousand
and one avenues open to those who seek
employment it could not well be other
Wise The tin bucket brigade is at work
ergo the merchants rejoice
MthoutAi in operation but a trifle over a
week the stock exchange has given evi
dence that It like the country newspaper
fills a longfelt want and has come to
sty and grow up with the community in
which it has been established Although
the greater proportion of the members are
somewhat inexperienced yet they are cut
ting their eye teeth at a most satisfactory
gait and will ere long prove formidable
competitors to those of longer years in the
pit Seriously though there can be no
doubt but that the organization and suc
cessful operation of the stock exchange is
another move in the right direction and it
is one that will help to attract the attention
of the outside world to the fact that Salt
Lake has within her boundaries business
men of nerve pluck and energy men who I
Jinow how t do a thing and go the right
3pray about it I
f Our clearing house report for the week
makes a most excellent showing and Salt
Lake again leads dozens of the cities that
have been and would be boom towns The
steady solid growth as indicated by the
clearing house returns must be satisfac
tory t all who have the material interests
of Salt Luke at heart
i I was with no little satisfaction that we
I printed the interview lately had by a
J Hnnui > representative with First Vice
President Peabody of the Rio Grande
Western Although there are some who
will shrug their shoulders and say Rail
way promises we are inclined t the be
lief that Mr Peabody means what he said
about it being the intention of the Rio
Grande Western t build up the section
through which it runs and Utah in gen
cral Nobody doubts the power of the rail
way company t either boost a town to the
top notch of prosperity or sink it so deep
that it will never be seen This has been
exemplified in more ways than one That
the Rio Grande Western runs through a
rich country there is no room for argu
ment That it has a big field t develop
there can bo no doubt That the promises
made by Mr Peabody will be carried out
we believe There was a time in the his
tory of the road when such promises could
not from the nature of things have been
fulfilled That time has passed With a
road bed and equipment second to none in
the Tnited States with unlimited capital at
its back the Rio Grande Western can be
made a powerful factor in building up
Utah and no city will feel the benefits t a
greater extent than Salt Lake

A Few Facts About Leading
TIme Camp Is Booming and Bids Fair to Be
come a Rival of tie Great Park
City Mines North
To a HEPALD reporter Simon Bamberger
gave the following interesting intelligence
Tintic i going Who thQ mining district of
territory and a rival of the Park The
strong point in its favor is that the mines
can be worked very cheaply there being
no water to contend with the mines being
a dry as a powder horn and the railroads
arc at their doors As to the number of
mines that are paying there is the Eureka
Hill which has shipped for yours from
10000 to 13000 tons some of ranging as
high as 5100 to the ton mid none of it is
likely to sail for less than 150 1 is a
private corporation and while the amount
of > dividends cannot easily be ascertained
yet it is known that the owners are classed
among the millionaires
are really twin mines and the lawsuit
grew out of the claim that they were from
one and the same great source but they
are now split and separate Next in the
lode southerly cames the
Which is not a twin mine as it con
centrates into one vein They
own about 3000 feet in length
along the vein and have rivaled the Eureka
Hill and BullionBeck in shipping even
larger quantities of high grade ore tuat has
been shipped by the other mines The
company is only beginning to show the
public what they can do in producing ore
and i is estimated that ere long they will
produce from two thousand
to three thou
sand tons month and it wouldnt aston
ish anybody who is familiar with mining
to find that the working expenses are so
small for the amount of ore produced will
be even larger The principal owners Ire
W W Chisholm Fred Woodman Simon
and Jake Bamberger and Ben tt Harness
and Bradley There are about uJOOO shares
in the company the balance 175000 shares
are in the bank to the credit of the com
pany At the rate the stock is selling for
on the market it would make the property
worth S70000 and it asserted by borne who
ought know that half of that is already

BullionBeck people is also going to make
a great showing for itself It is under
stood that it will be listed on the
stock exchange and there are now a num
ber of people watching it with the intention
of getting some of the stock The great
advantage of the Tintic mines is i that when
the ore is shipped to the market they
find a ready sale for it at good
figures and thus avoid the uncer
tainty of treating the oro in va
rious processes which do not always prove
satisfactory There are a number of pros
pects being developed that promise well
and there is
a probability that as
soon as they show sufficiently to show
permanently they will be placed on the
stock exchange as prospects These are
the class of mines that the people will be
looking for t buy stock in for the others

A Rich Ore Developed in the Mountains to
the South of Logan
As will be remembered by the readers of
the Journal a mine situated In the moun
tains in the southern part of the valley was
workEd to a considerable extent about three
years ago by Messrs Edwards Scott and
Suarr At that time some thousands of
dollars were spent upon the mine and a
tunnel near 200 feet long was constructed
Through some apparent miscalculation
however the tunnel failed to strike the
silver ledge which showed so plainly on
the surface Becoming disheartened the
proprietors quit work
Early the present season Mr Edwin
Rowland of this city became convinced
thai there was paying ore in the mine and
in company with Mr J R Edwards who
had never lost faith in tho enterprise and
Mr Trewhela of SaltLake relocated the
mine and work was begun at once The
miners followed the ledge from the surface
fifty feet where the ledge of freemilling
ore was discovered to be ten feet wide It
is feet believed the ledge extends hundreds of
Of course several assays have been made
of the ore and the owner of one of the
smelters at Park City took from the mine
here 300 pounds of average ore and after
putting it through the mil i was found it
yielded fortyseven ounces t the tona
rare yield indeed and one that would bring
an enormous sum to its owners i the mine
held good along the ledge
Mr Edwards one of the proprietors
states it is the intention to dig another fifty
feet along the ledge and i the ore lasts
every effort will be made to establish a mill
at the mine There are many tons of ore
already at the dump and a lingo
amount could of course hemmed in a short
time The proprietors of the mine are ex
cusably jubilant over the prospect they
hive and feel satisfied that it will not fail
as the rock can be worked for three ounces
to the ton and the smallest yield ouncs by
assay was ten ounces to tho ton
There is a widespread opinion that i a
full investigation proves the mine t be all
that is claimed for i the county and tire
community hero should contribute t the
purchase of an ore mill a the development
of the mine would bring another railway
through the mountains as there is a ex
cellent opening for a road through the
cafion passing the mines and a railway
would add to the wealth and progress of
the valley I Is believed that were contri
butions toward purchasing a stamp mill
furnished it would result in the develop
ment of other mines and would cause an
era more prosperous than ever to pass over
this section The proprietors have worked
hard and spent a large sum in the develop
ment of tho mine and now that their labor
about to aid the valley It is urged they
should be encouraged and that being long
residents hei e and as interested as other
citizens they should be given the prefer
ence of encouragement and pecuniary as
sistance over new comers who will ag
surely come and locate claims a this mine
succeeds Further the owners living her
the wealth will remain here and
wi here not ho I

Denver and San Francisco is situated on
the east coast ot Great Salt Lake in the
most fertile valley in the world
Has tho healthiest climate and finest
mountain scenery in the world
Has an unlimited water supply from the
snowcapped peaks of the Wasatch range
Has unlimited and inexhaustible coal
fields close at hand
Has a region larger than the Atlantic
states from Maine to Maryland
sttes lar as a com
mercial centre with a population of over
This region contains gold silver lead
copper iron coal hard soft and coking

hite mines petroleum and natural gas
Springs of the different mineral waters
both hot and cold abound in this region
Has a large white lead works four smel
ters and many stamp mills and sampling
Has woolen mills paper mills shoe hat
clothing and silk factories glass and chem
ical works four large flour mills and ma
chine shops and foundries
Has eight railroads entering the city and
seven in course of construction
Has near at hand the finest building
stone and marble quarries in the United
States i
Has a Tabernacle with the
abernace largest organ
and greatest seating capacity of any build
jug In the world
Has tho finest Temple on the globe forty
years under construction
Has more redheaded girls than any city
in the United States and a white horse for
each Ole of them
Has four daily and several weekly and
monthly papers
Has a magnificent military post
Has a most complete stemof irrigation
Has more children than any city of Its size
in the world
Has most magnificent bathing far super
ior to that of the ocean
Has a demand for men with money to
build brick blocks modern residences
street railway and motor lines
Mining stock raising and agriculture are
the principal resources of tho country
The assessed valuation of our city prop
erty will be about fCO000000
The actual valuation about 120000000
The assessed valuation of Salt Lake
county will be about C3000000
The actual valuation 130000000
The total tax levied is 12 mills but this
will probably be reduced this year
The bonded debt of the county is 5330000
The bonded debt of the city is 430000
Securities held by nonresidents are not
subject to taxation
The total output of the mines in Utah for
89 was about 12000000
The fruit and farm products were over
Our live stock Is valued at about
There were 0000000 pounds of wool pro
duced in Utah inS and only about 2000tOO I
pounds used by homo manufactories
which fact calls for more woolen factories
here where water is plenty and pure and
fuel and labor are cheap
There is a demand for more farmers and
fruit raisers as Utah produces outside of
the flour interest only about 23 per cent
of the agricultural and fruit product con
sumed in this intermountain region the
balance is shipped from the eastern states
and California We produce only about 10
per use cent of the butter and cheese that we
useThere are grand opportunities here for
men of energy brains and a little money

Men Who Amassed Fortunes by
Investing in Sal Lake Realty
A Few Facts That Will be News to Many
PeopleHow Some Starts
Were Made
There is perhaps no city on this continent
in which so large I number of its citizens
became millionaires in such a short time as
Salt Lake
Men who but a few years ago were reck
oned worth 50000 by a single turn of the
wheel of values now rank as millionaires
and can take a tour of the world every year
without cutting much of a figure in their
annual income
The freak of fortune touched every land
holder in the city and many poor people
suddenly became rich As nearly every
old resident owned the house in which he
dwelt the appreciation in values fell line a
benediction upon all the old inhabitants of
the city in more or less degree
County Recorder George M Cannon
who has watched the current of fortune
carry every man who stood in its way to
the haven of affluence imparted such in
formation as foil within his iihaprvntinn to
n n
a HEUALD reporter
After the Brigham Young estate which
has been largely sold and divided among
the numerous heirs the William Jennings
estate is the richest in the city I includes
property in almost every part of the city
Main street and First and Second South
streets The Emporium building is the
most valuable block owned by this estate
The Walker Bros I think rank next
their property including somj of the most
valuable corners on Main and Second South
street besides a good line of very valuable
suburban property
Next to the Walkers comes the Groes
becks who have a gold mine of Main street
frontage and good business property on
First and Second South street
The Eldredge estate holds a great deal
of realty much of which is in acreage the
most of the business property being on
Main street
John E Dooly is quite wealthy in
realty and owns the old Gilmer tract
cast of Liberty park being one of the best
tracts in the whole valley and some very
valuable property on West Temple near
the Ontario hotel
d L S Hills cashier of tho Deseret Na
tonal oanir has extensive real estate interests
terests both personally I and in corporations
in which he holds stock
W S McCornick holds considerable
real estate though the bulk of his vast for
tUne is in mining and other industries
T G Webber superintendent of the
Z C M L who formerly owned the site of
the Hotel Ontario is quite well off in realty
though the bulk of his fortune is in stocks
ExMayor Francis Armstrong who is
president of the Utah Commercial and
Savings bank never sold a foot of ground
until year or two ago except one piece
and tbativas in a case where he made a
give OKj take offer and the other fellow
took him With his fellow directors in the
bank he represents f2C03000
The Richards family had a short time
agobefore Levi W Richards sold his land
to McCornick the neighborhood of
three hundred feet frontage on Main street
located north of First South At the rate
he sold to McCornick tho balance would not
sell orlesstban COOCOO
Auerbachs came here in the early
days with a load of merchandise and made
their start from a very humblo beginning
Today their realty in Salt beginning
represent close to a millionwhile their mer
chandise and
other property would net as
much more He once told me how the
blankets he brought here that cost him but
little sold like hot cakes yielding him from
300 tojlOO per cent profit
One of the most unpretentious men in
Salt Lake city is George Romney You
will find him all all over town superintend
ing buildings and he never indulges in a
carriage but either takes his legs or a
street car at a nickel a fare He has ono
piece of property on Main street just south
of the White house that would alone be
enough to keep a halt dozen men in ease
He is apartner of Geo H Taylor and is a
heavy holder of stock in Z C M I
George H Taylor is partner with
Romney and Armstrong in the lumber
business and these three with Thomas
Larimers established the business that has
since grown into that great commercial
enterprise known as TaylorRomney
Armstrong Co This firm were all poor
men when they came here and today
without a doubt represent the greatest
amount of wealth among the Mormonpeo
pie found in any one firm
W H Rowe assistant superintendent
of the Z C M I and in charge of all her
manufactures is largely interested in real
estate also in stocks
Geo M Scott is a large holder of real
estatcowninsr tho ScottAuerbach building

Spencer Clawson has probably made
more money than any other young man
among the merchants and has built up a
large wholesale dry goods house besides
Investing heavily in real estate about the
I Mrs Wm Jennings is the richest wid
ow in the city and the yearly income on
the property that stands in her name
would yield a sum that would mike many
men think they were very rich
The Foramorz Little is another rich
estate though he sold a large amount
property just before his death The estate
owns over onethird of the ten acre block
in which the new county and city building
is being erected The estate is incorpora
ted and is now held in the name of the
Grand Hotel company
There are more poor people owning
their own homes here than in any other
city in the world of its size It is not onlv
the poor who own property here either as
we have some of the most noted persons in
the world including Lilly Langtry whoso
holdings have increased at least 300 per
cent There was one tract that was of
fered to me for 510JO of which she purch
ased a part that could be readily sold at
present values for S50000
A favorable method of outsiders in pur
chasing land is to hold it in the name of a
trustee I think that the most money 1
recently made out of real estate was on
Third South and First East tho parties on
West Temple holding on to their holdings
with great firmness
Among real estate agents I think
Kesey Gillespie made more money by
buying for themselves than any other
One of the first men who showed
any faith in Salt Lake property was
Louis Ehrichs of Colorado Springs who
came hero in March 1SS7 and invested
every cent he had and all he could borrow
He bought one block for 512000 just north
of Liberty park and you could not touch
the same block to day for S130000 That
was only ono of the many profitable trans
actions he made
Alex Q Smith an old soldier from
Burlington Iowa followed Ehrich and
while he put in more money
ho did not take more out
Ho boughtonlSecond Southwest of Mulloy
Pauls livery stable that twostory row
of buildings for 1 > 00 which 5200000
would not touch today He also bought the
the corner south from tho St Elmo at what
was conslderedfa big sum then from tho
Walkers and several hundred acres across
the Sixth wart bridge Ho bought that at
a price that would enable them to sell it
at an advance of 100 per cent

The county jail built by tho Pauly Jail
Building company and warranted to keep

supposed impregnable cage and were dis
covered in their little same just before
they had succeeded in breaking the outside
bar and making good their escape

There is another hitch in the street rail
way business Contrary to the advice of
your correspondent given in TIIE HEKALD
some time ago tho directors of the road
concluded to run the line to the lake in
stead of building through the streets of the
city Well thoy had gotten about half a
mile beyond the west end when the ques
tion arose as to which of the two or three
resorts on tho lake shore they were to
build to A committee of five stockholders
was appointed to examine the matter and
report which they did recommending that
the terminus for the present be fixed at
the crossing of the Rio Grande Western
track about a quarter of a mile short of
where tho road is already constructed to
And her the matter lies smoldering I is
to bo hoped that this recommendation will
be adopted and that the road will be con
fined to its legitimate purpose i e the
accommodation of the people in the city

Bamberger Slashes Tretveefc Thrusts Warn
pier Mauls Stevenson Caps and Hyams
Balls ap the Blood
The first week on change has been as
full of interest as a bull fight There were
passes and thrusts many severe
no mortal wounds The men were on their
metal sizing each other up And it was
curious to seo the number of feelers put
out to draw an opponent off his guard
Each man was taking the measure of every
other man as accurately as if he expected
to meet him on a Frenchmans terms
Bamberger slashed right aed left Trc
week made keen thrusts Wampler mauled
Stevenson made neat cuts While Louis
Hyamu stood by to bail up the blood
That was how it looked to a man who
dropped in and didnt know what it all
And yet that battle of the giants was a
commercial transaction which will affect
tho market values of the mines of Utah and

have yielded 130000000 and speculating
on those that may so far exceed these that
the great Ontario will be looked upon as a
very tame affair

Indications In New York Regarding Legiti
mate Business Continue Encouraging
All indications regarding legitimate
business continue encouraging At the
same time there Is a renewal of speculative
excitement based on the prospect that a
silver bill will speedily pass both Houses
and in such form that executive approval
can be expected It is difficult at times to
distinguish between the merely speculative
and the more substantial Improvement
but in this instance there is no room to
doubt that the conditions aro improving for
productive industries and for legitimate
trade Crop prospects have brightened
wonderfully and those who look for better
times are no longer forced to account for a
hopeful and confident tone in the face of a
short crop outlook The general average
of prices has not been affected much as yet
but has turned upward and manufactured
products with breadstuffs show a general
tendency to advance
The reports from other cities are almost
without exception favorable Boston
notes not much change but higher prices
obtained for boots and shoes with even
more advance in hides and leather and
largo sales Wool is quiet but firm and
manufacturers are looking for some ad
rnncn nn litrhtTrMrrht trnnfl fnttnn goods
hold the late advance and lumber is i firm
with good business Philadelphia has re
ported three mill failures in the neighbor
hood and CO per cent of the spindles ecu
idle but the situation in wool is ono of
waiting Iron improves coal stiffens the
liquor trade is more active and the leather
and boot and shoe trades are pleased In
building May showed a decline of more
than a third from last year Pittsburg
notes improvement in iron and no expecta
tion of trouble about tho new scale of
wages Cleveland finds tradegood and iron
improving and at Detroit trade brightens
with crop prospects In general through
out the west the rains have made the out
look very much brighter and business
everywhere improves accordingly Chicago
notes increase in movement of all grains
and meats better trade in dry goods and
fairly good in boots and shoes with good
pgyments in sUSt Louis finds the sltua
tion generally xavbhlvihgtrjzear
logs exceeding all past ± a
waukee St Paul Kansas City and Omaha
the improvement in crop prospects stimu
lates trade At Salt Lake trade Is active
for the season with real estate firm and
at Memphis decided gain in the cotton pros
pects gives now activity
The great industries show clearly the
general tendency toward improvement
The wool manufacture does not improve
so clearly and sales at Boston last week
were but lhS2000 pounds but there is dis
tinctly more confidence that some improve
ment in prices of goods which are now sub
jected to foreign competition may be real
ized if the House tariff bill passes the Sen
ate also The cotton manufacture con
tinues fairly active and a decline in raw
cotton during the week has helped a little
The business failures occurring through
out the country during the last seven days
as reported to R G Dun Co number
for tho United States 170 and for Canada
25 or a total of 205 failures as compared
