VOUXLVIV. PIOCHE. NEVADA. THURSDAY, MAY 18, 188)9. v "DIXIE" Not Patronize the Utah & Pacific. F.ulSiT RUES TO 1 HiGi Mass Meeting Held at St. George and Resolutions Adopted - Frisco Rates Should be applied to all Utah & Pacific Points Some few days since The Tribune pointed out tike trouble in store for the Utah k Pacific in not being able to hold its freight tariff as published. It was shown that southern shippers still team to Milford, and the rea sons therefore were fully set forth in the tariffs quoted.' The remedy was likewise giveu. Some days ago Chief Engineer West of the new road wrote a letter to the Washington County News, setting forth the freight ta iff figures, aud asiiiug for the patronage of the people of that section. The letter was in our issue of May 4th As a sequel, a general meeting of business men was held in St. George last Wednesday night, and after a lengthy discussion the following resolutions were passed : Whereas, The present freight rate from Salt Lake to St. George is $1. 63 per hundred pounds, 63 cents of which amount is cash and $1 mer chandise, with every facility for ob taining supplies for the freightei s on said route, and, Whereas, Merchants and shippers .vould have to pay from Salt Lake to Modena an average of $1.09 cash, and 65 cents merchandise from Mo dena to St. George, or an average via Modena of $1.74, an excess of 11 cents per hundred: Again, it is implied, in the letter of Mr. West, that the people of St. Oeorge and vicinity have made pledg es of patronage, etc, to said Utah k Pacific railroad, "runninsr as it does through a desert country." We, the the undersigned, unqualifiedly deny any such implication. Resolved, therefore, for the fore going reasons, that until an equita ble adjustment of freight rates can be had from the Utah k Pacific rail road that we continue to do our shipping from Milford. It was also shown that the cost of hay and grain between St. George and Modena would be double the cost of the same articles on the route between St. George and Milford, therefore making teaming more ex pensive. Again, that part of the road to Modena which goes through the meadows is so muddy and heavy in wet weather as to be almost if not quite, impassable. Another feature of the subject that received a great amount of attention, according to the St. George paper, was the fact that teamsters would charge more in proportion for the short haul than for the long one, owing to the increased expenses of providing for their teams and the road being a more difficult one, ad ded to which they can nearly always depend upon having freight bot t ways when they travel via Cedar City and Milford. Cash, a scarce commo dity in that section, would have to be paid to the railroad company, whereas the teamsters now are gen arally paid in merchandise. Tawing the whole matter into consideration it appears that if the merchants and business men were to patronize the new line uuder present conditions, it would be at a big loss to themselves and the entire community. The remedy foi the whole trouble is so simple that it is strange the question should arise. Let the Ore gon Short Line tariff apply to all Utah k Pacific points, the present Frisco rates as .shovra by O. S. L. No. 330. Even if the Oregon Short Line were not identified with the Utah k Pacific, it would be the fair thing to do. This proved by the same tariff No. 330 which applies all Nephi rates to points on the Sanpete Valley road. By so doing, Milford would be abolished as a shipping point, ex cept for its own tributary territory, ud the average merchandise rate, llt Lake to Stateline, of 65 J cents would work wonders around Dixie. The Utah k Pacific is entitled to the concession, the people of Dixie expect it, aud unless it is accom plished there will likely be no change. Not having a traffic official to cope with the freight tariffs, the new road is unable to state its demands. As the remedy lies with the Short Line, aud as that company has a large in terest in the road, the public will be unable to see why the action is not taken, especially as the Short Line win not lose a cent, lor wbat is lost " ... uuk luoe ueub, aui hum w iwi by the payment of the Utah A Pacific arbitrary, will be twice made up by a nsw traffic developed by the low m . . . m l uwoa jfaoino rates. Under the dan Drorjoaed hw Th Tribune, the rates from Salt Lake to all Utah k Pacifio points were, first, 72 cents; second, 65e; third, 62c; fourth, 58c; fifth. 50c, and so on in proportion. Taking tha Wh ington County News for authority on warn cnarges, the average mer chandise rates from Salt Lake to St. ueorge would be $1.29, as against 91. td, tne cnarge complained of, Tribune. ST. GEORGE PROTEST REGARD ED AS BEING TIMELY. Railroaders Admit that Rates are Too Hgh. The protest of the people of Dixie against the rates charged by the Utah k Pacific was a matter of mnch discussion yesterday. It is now atnt ed that lust as soon as th mn1 reaches McCuneand termini tMli ties are completed, an effort will be made to adjust the rates, but nothing can be settled until that time. The road has only six miles more to con struct and it may be two weeks be- iore tbe road is finished. It is admitted on all sides that the rates are too high. In fact there is little need of a "local" tarff on the Utah k Pacific, as all its business will be throusrh. This is shown hv the local tariff between Milford and southern poiuts, the figures on first class being 24 cents to Lund, 50c to Modena and 56c to McCunn Team charges would forever come under these rates and teamsters can be found to work at such rates. One railroad man stated vesterdav that The Tribune's figures were a little too low. although the nlnn correct and was the one that will pro- Daoiy be adopted. His idea is to add 20 cents to the Milford rates to make rates for all Utah & Pacific points. That, however, will not prevent people teaminsr to Milford. lne only remedy is to annlv th Milford rates to all Utah A PaninV points and allow the latter a fair nr. bitrary. Tribune. A GREAT MINING DEAL Col. EJ, Wall Sells to Captai Del. Mir. The Deal was Made After Exhaustive Tests and Samples and $50,000 Paid on the Option-Extensive Work will be Prosecuted, and a Plant to Concentrate Two Thourand Tons Daily put in-Col. Wail will Remain to Push Develop, ment Capt. De La Mar's Movements. The foot-hold on Bingham's big copper-bearing zone, for which Capt. De La Mar has been so long sparring was finally secured by him yesterday, when, through the banking-house of McCornick k Co.. he shelled out $50,000 and clinched an option on on the Wall group No. 1 of sixteen claims, the property of Col. E. A. Wall of this city, the balance, amounting to $250,000 to be placed to the credit of the vendor on or h- fore December 31st., next. The closing of yesterday's contract between the Captain and the Colonel adds another chapter to tae brilliant list of stars who have been, within the past few months, dealt out their millions in the aquisition of Bing ham bonanzas, and to its diggings imparts a prestige that has been at tained by few of any country. It is just a year ago now that the aeries of sensational disclosures in the cop per zone began to engage the seri ous attention of Capt. De La Mar, and his experts began the search for ground. Tne Wall group, adjoiu ing the properties of the Highland Boy on the east, commended to him, au exnaustive examination was be gun and lasted several weeks. lu conducting it the old Markham mill in Bingham canyon was brought into requisition, aud before the examin ation was completed over 1100 as says had been made and eiirhtv tons of ore sampled at the plaut. While the demonstrations were very satis factory, something occurred to in terrupt the dicker, and not until his reappearance in this city a short time ago was it reopened. Mean while Col. Wall, whose faith in the ultimate produotivness of the big group, that spreads out over the porphyry belt, had never Mixed, continued the work of opening it up, aud with what result yesterday's deal affords the best evidence. Accom panied by Victor M. Clement, he vis ited the ground on Sunday, aud sat isfied with the showings, the draw ing up of the deeds was ordered. Discussing it yesterday the Cap tain said that although the proposi tion was one that must require con centration to put its ore in commer cial form, it was one of the biggest in which he had ever in meted him self. Indeed, the ore b 4j was such bub eu eMiuuD uoijr vuiuumiiwu auu already he has made up his mind that a concentrator of no lew tht-a 2000 tons daily capacity must be in- to almost defy computation and 1 1 j tin ;ti u stalled.

Having prosecuted tne development work thus far. Col Wall has at the solicitation of the Captain, consented to remain with it, and increasing the forca will push work with all Dossibla dianath. The appearance of Capt. De La Mar m auoiner or utak'i great camps win De cause for great demonstra tion of approval, not only at Bing nam, but throughout the Stat. Having inspected the Golrln fl.k at Mercur, from which a Niagara of gum is pouring into his pocket each i a .... month, the Captain will leave for the East this morning. Arranmnr bis affairs at that end of the line. h will sail for Paris, and returning to America promises that th nm a rf of the diggings will see more of 1 ? fWl mm. lriDune A. D.
