franchise asked by b the Utah Light
Railway RaUwa company Where Vh re the big
cities of the continent will be eighty clghtyears
years frpm now when the life of this
franchise would be drawing to an end
it is impossible to say sa It will not be bewithout bewithout bewithout
without profit to ascertain where the
big cites were eighty years or ninety
years ago It may surprise some of
the advocates of the franchise frapchl to learn
that eighty years ago there was just justone justone justone
one city clt in America that had a larger largerpopulation targerpopulation largerPopulation
population than Salt Lake now has
That city is New York If a monopoly
of the streets for light gas and trac ¬

In New York ninety years enrs ago it would
be worth something now
