Consider The
Salt Lako City, Nov. 17. Negotia
tions for tho salo of the Salt Lako
& Ogden railroad, commonly known
as tho Dambcrgcr electric lino aro
under way, and Simon Bamberger,
owner of tho road has agreed to sell
his property to M. B. Harely of
Chlcngo for $3,750,000. Tho salo of
tho road depends largely on whether
David Eccles will placo a prlco on
his electric lines In Ogdcn and north
ward that Is within tho limit set by
tho prospective eastern purchasers.
This, Mr. EccleB said yesterday,
ho had refused to do, saying that ho
was too busy to spend his tlmo with
offers to buy his property that wero
not accompanied by caBh payments.
Mr. Eccles said that nothing look
ing tow'nrds tho salo of tho lino be
tween Ogden and Brlghara would bo
done at present. Continuing, Mr.
Eccles said:
"It Is truo certain parties have
asked to purchaso my Interests, but
1 have been "approdched bo often to
sell that I will not consider a prop
osition unless there Is somo substan
tial backing, I was In Salt Lako yes
terday nnd was visited by parties
who said they wanted to buy my
railroad Interests, but I am skepti
cal In this matter and will not say
whether I will sell until I seo tho
"I cannot wasto tlmo with these
peoplo nnd will not lot them inter
fere with my business. If I get my
price I will sell. Mr. Hcroly was
in tho city today on this matter but
nothing was definitely decided upon
. I fcipU no negotiation entered Into.
' Mr. Bamberger's offer to sell at
$3,750,000 wa3 made several weoks
ago to Mr. Heroly, formerly general
manager of tho Chicago cast side
traction lines, who Is now In Salt
Lake working on tho deal which It
I consummated will eventually lncludo
an interurban system that will tako
In tho principal towns of Cache, Box
Elder, Wober, Davis, Salt Lako and
Utah counties.
Mr. Heroly, after .completing his
understanding with Simon Bamberg
er relative to the proposed sale, mot
David Eccles at tho Hotel Utah, and
lator went to Ogden, where ho made
a careful though hurried examination
of tho Ogden Rapid Transit com
pany's lines; returning to Salt Lake
at 8 o'clock In tho evening and hold
' lng another conference with Mr.
it Barabcrgor.
Although Mr. Bamberger refused
to give a direct answer to tho Ques
tion as to whether any salo had been
made he did make positive state
ments that In thomsolves could leavo
no doubt that no transfer had been
made, although ho has high hopes
tat is offer of to railroad at $100,000
a mllo will bo accepted. Tho Salt
Lako & Ogden railway is capitalized
at $1,500,000 all tho stock being com
mon and practically all held by Mr.
ilamborger. Three years ago a bond
issue of $2,000,000 was authorized
and $1,150,000 In bonds placed. This
money was used largoly In tho elec
trification of tho lino, including a
steam power plant at Lagoon and for
new electric cars.
I Tho power plant was sold flvo
I weeks ago to tho Utah Light & Pow
I er company, which has been purch
I nBing olectrlo plants In Utah during
the last few months. Tho sale of
I tho Lagoon plant was for $152,000
land at tho timo tho Bamberger lino
mado a contract for powor with tho
purchasers covering a long period.
I I' L. Dame who has been ropro-
sontlng cnpltu-llats in tho purchaso oT

yesterday that his company was not

Dear Sir: Of late most of tho

, David Eccles was In tho city yes
terday and was going over tho now
interurban with Manager Robort An
derson. They made a trip touth of
town yosterday as far as Blacksmith
Fork river and took measurements of
tho river with tho view of placing
nn order for a bridge. Mr. Ecclo3
was asked regarding plans and al
though ho would not say anything
about what ho Intended to do In
railroad dovolopmcnt, ho did say
that tho road thus far constructed
is entirely satisfactory and that his
men aro still on tho Job. There
seems to bo no doubt but tho Inter
urban will bo run to Brlgham City
as fast as tho weather will permit
of railroad building. Of courso It
would bo a hard question to give
nny deflnlto nnswors as to when tho
lino will reach Hyrum but wo aro
safo In saying that It will reach that
point Just as quick as Mr. Eccles
can get It thero. Tho road Is now
completed td tho Logan rlvor.

All through tho day tho sound of
tho heavy guns distinctly was heard

to an infantry'attack.
Tntf Turkish batlerlos roplled vig
