county, boing the Riverdalo, Pleasant

The delegates from Weber county
asked that action be deferred on the
lettlnc of tho contract for resurfacing
roads in that ronntry, hut the minutes
Of the commission showed that at the
meeting last Friday, when the bids
were opened, the bid of Gibbons C
Reed was so much lower than that of
the other three bidders, that the con
tract was awarded io thorn at once, al
though the contract has not been

The Weber county visitors also,
. ked that ihe state commission re-1
train from acting on the report of J. i
K Martin, district engineer for the for
est service regarding the road from
Hunisvil'le into Weber county until
further represent.,-!! ions had been
made by thorn to the fort si Bervice.
This was agreed to by the state com-,
mission, and D. I McKay of Hunts
illo was appointed to investigate
. aailable routes.
Included in the Weber delegation
were senator Parker. Representative
l) D. McKay, and T E. McKay, J U.
Eldredge, Jr., representing the Ogden
Rotary club: O. J- Stilwrll. 8 V Grow
and Frank Stephens, representing the
publicity bureau, John t'ullcy. ropre
senting the University club. Commie
Bioners Ensign and John Child, of w
b county, and John Lewis, represent
inc the Ogden Merchants association.
They put up a hard fighi in behalf
, of cement construction, as opposed to
bitulithlc, and described the plan of
improvement outlined by the state
road ooiumission as patchwork.
Auditor Joseph Riric, a member of
the state commission expressed the
opion thai tho county would be satis
fied with the road when completed,
and referred to the advertising power
of Ogden canyon to Ogden city. I. I.
MoKa expressed iiif' opinion that the
! advertising is not to be taken serious
ly and said that the road now is in
i as bad shape as he has known rt to be
in ihirty yearB.
The bids asked for by the board
! were for bitulithic covering on the
present old wornout base of these
(roadways and that competition was
stifled was evidenced Irom the racl
that bids were called for blthuilthic
only while cement, a Utah material,
and particularly B groat industry of
Ogden, was not even mentioned.
It was pointed out by the solid ar
cument and by Ihe facts and figures
that cement is tho best known ma
terla ol Which to construct a perma
nent base for road work.
Attention was called to the present
condition of these roads which arc
simply a conglomeration of rock, dirt,
gravel and sand covered over with a
thin coat of tarvla which the commh
sion proposes to use us a base, same
to bo covered with two inches of bl
tulithie materials The opinion ex
proved by ihe protectants was that
such a road would last at best but a
few years That it was an experiment
which was more than likely to prove
very expensive io the taxpayers of
the state was ihe view held by ihe
Weber county delegation.
The discussion of the subject
brought out the Pad thai such a road
would cost about $20,000 per mile or
about $242.0(10 for the twelve miles
of road to he constructed. State En-
'gineer McGonagle reluctantly acknowl
edged thai ?2tj00 was the amount of
tribute which would bo paid to tho
owners of the patented material which
they proposed to use, this being in tho
i nature of a royalty
In response to a question he also
said that he believed concrete was as
good as bitUlithfC, hut when asked
why he did not favcr concrete, a Utah
material he said thai bitulithic was
also a Utah material, and such a road
SB i ontemplaiod under the specifica
tions would last about ten yean
'Speaking f u i i ho r the Male engineer
i 'passed the buck ' lb the Weber eoun
tj commissioners, claiming that the
j action of th state eommlsslon was
j based upon n request of the Weber
county commissioners that such a road
of such materials be constructed
Joseph Riric made a long argument
'against Utah cement in favor of the hi
tulithic substance. His Btatemenl
thai he believed he could bring down a
delegation from Ogden which would
represent the majority Bentlmenl of
the people agalnsl cement was prompt
ly challenged.
John Child, of the Weber county
'commission said that the Weber com
missioners had every confidence in
,tho judgment of Ihe stale commission'
and was willing to leave the matter in
their hands, believing they would ho
! given a good road. The commissioner
nan neen toia oj mo state engineer
that the work on this class of road j
would cost from (11,000 to $13,000 per
mile and ho was surprised when the
bids -howod a greater amount
The protestantfl requested that the
hoard i misider oarofully then prote '
and that the present bids be rejected
and now bids called for which would
provide for Utah cement as well as
other materials, gis in;: an opportunity
for the cementN people as well as otli
ers to compete.
