Track laying between Rifle creek and Grand Junction, a distance of sixty-fiv- e miles, was begun last Tuesday, April 8, and is being pushed at the rate of one and a half miles a day. This is the joint the joint track of the Midland and Rio Grande Western, and it is expected that the connection at Grand Junction will be completed early in May. H. II: Houston, a director of the Pennsylvania Railway company, is traveling in a private car. Mr. Hous-ton at last accounts was on the Pacific coast, homeward bound. He will arrive in Salt Lake Saturday morning, and will be received by General Manager Resseguie and other prominent railway officials. Mr. Houston is accompanied in his car by a party of invited guests. AM TDK IRON THE The Chicago, Book Island and Pacific- Se-cure a Lease of the Denver & Bio Grande's Entire System. BETTEB FACILITIES NOW ASSUEED. Salt Lakers Can Have two Eoutes to the East in Future A Grist of General and Personal News. A well defined rumor is in circulation to the effect that the Chicago, Rock Island am' Pacific has entered into a contract with the Denver and Rio Grande and Rio Grande Western rail-roads by which the lines of the latter companies will be leased for a period of 00 years, w hich amounts to a virtual sale. This action has been anticipated for a long time as the former road has been especially desirous of getting into Salt Lake. It aud the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy arc the only lines reaching from Chicago to Denver, and the hitter's traffic arrangement with the Union Pacific west has had the ef-fect to injure the business of the Rock Island lo a considerable extent. By an absorption of the Itio Grande system the road will bo placed on a much bet-ter footing than is its rival. If the report be true, aud it is hoped that it is, the result will be of great benefit to Salt Lake. At the present time the Rio Grande is nothing more than an immense play-thing. The trip from Denver to Salt Lake is a tedious trip especially in win-ter when the scenery, of w hich so much is said, is covered with snow and the little three-foo- t track is buried out of sight. A consignment of freight sent over tho line is many, many days in reaching its destination, while tho passenger grows grey-haire- d wait-ing for his journey's end. If tho Rock Island gets hold of the line the gauge will at once bo widened and communi-cation with tho outside world will be greatly improved. In this connection it may be well to state that The Times announced this matter about a mouth ago, and that beyond a doubt the pre-diction made lias been fulfilled. In view of these rumors and asser-tions a Times reporter called on Mr. J. II. Bennett, the general freight and passenger agent of tho Rio Grande Western, who said in substance: "The Rio Grande Western is the most valuable pieco of railroad property in the western country. I do not believe that it is either for sale or has been sold to any other corporation. If, when it could have been purchased cheaper than it can now, it was not sold, it is not reasonable to suppose that the com-pany has disposed of it now that the property has become very much more valuable, What makes the property so valuable is that It will havo for feeders at Grand Junction the Denver & Rio Grande, tho Midland, or Rock Island, if you please; the Santa ,Fo and tho Mis-souri Pacific. It is onlv a nuestion of lime when these four great roads will be at Grand Junction, and thou we shall handle tho traffic of each; and we can do it cheaper than they can themselves. Thero is nothing in the rumor of sale, nor do I believe that there is any likelihood of even along lease being executed to the Rock Island. I am of the opinion that the Tribune has received, us a sequel, an-other installment of railroad news sim-ilar to its famous Wuterbury watch story." A call at the trainmaster's office in the Rio Grando Western depot failed to find Superintendent Bancroft in his office; but posted in the bullet in book was tho following notice: Salt Lake City, April 15, 1890. To all conductors: On aud after this date you will honor all trip passes countersigned by E. St. John. (Signed) W. II. Bancroft, General Superintendent. Mr. St. John is the general manager of thn Rock Island system, and whether the fact thai the Rio Grando Western people have furnished him with blank trip pusses, good when countersignod by himself, lias any siguifieauco with regard to the rumored change in tho status of the Rio Grande Western, can-not bo said. C. F. Resseguie, tho general manager of the Uniou Pacific's Mountain divis-ion, simply says that ho knows nothing about tho matter. Railway Notes and 1'ersonnls. Agent Mitchell of tho Milwaukee is in tho city. A Raymond excursion of 125 people is duo here on Saturday. Lake Park will not be opened this year until about June 15. Tho first regular train to Garfield beach yesterday was well patronized. Track laying between Ritio and Grand Junction will lie performed by a track-layin- g machine. Tho Denver it Rio Grande has re-cently placed orders for tweuty-liv-new engines and 3500 cars. Rio Grande Western train No. 1, due to arrive hero this evening, was re-ported on timo at Grand Junction, Tho new coaches of the Rio Graudo are running. An entire train, together with a new eugino, was photographed at tho depot yesterday. It is stated that very soon tho trip from Denver to Salt Lake via the Rio Rraude w ill be made iu 26 hours instead of from one day to a week. Clarcuco Brown, general press agent of the Union Pacific, has completed the task of compiling a book on Salt Lake City and Garfield beach, which will be distributed in a few days. J. V. Parker, division ticket agent of the Union Pacific, went to Nephi yes-terday. Tomorrow, iu company with General Manager Resseguie, he will leave for a tour of the northwestern lines. It is believed that the Union Pacific is securing terminal facilities in San Francisco, and the people of that city are rejoicing in the hope that inside, of twenty-fou- r months Union Pacific trains will rtiu through from Omaha lo the Pacific Coast.

The transfers yesterday umouuled to over $130,000. Among the larger deals yesterday were the following: A. J. Warner sold to J. Thomas a part of lot 5, block 85, plat A, for $32,000, while C. Green disposed of three lots in block 18, plat A, for $20,000. BUILDING MATTERS. The work of building is going on at a lively rale. J.ilL Bowman is erect-ing a residcuee on Fifth South between First and Second ; West, at a cost of $5000. The report made yesterday that Mr. J. A. Fritch wonld build on Second South seems to bo incorrect although The Times information was supposed to be reliable. Mr Fritch could not be found at the hour requisite to o btaiu a confirmation before going to press yes-terday, and the statement was taken without confirmation. Mr. Fritch will not build but there are others who will. Among the now buildings in course of construction is the Lawrence building opposite the Continental. The Totman house eompauy have already erected seven of their portable dwellings here. A BIO PEAL. There is a big syndicate being formed amoug Omaha gentlemen, says the Omaha Bee, lo lake up a large tract of land near Salt Lake City. It is not yet known who the parties are composing this syndicate, but the deal, it is said, is one of considerable magnitude and will be of great importance aud benefit to Sail Lake's future welfare. Investments in Salt Lake realty at fair prices at this time certainly cannot fail of good re-turns. Omaha capital and wholesale interests are now well represented in Utah, and if properly cared for will grow in proportion to her increase in population, which bids fair to equal that of Dcuvcr in a few short years.

The Result of the Trials or this Morning's Term of Court. ' It was evident from the expression of his honor's face this moruiug that some-thing was going to happen. "Sergeant," he remarked, "let down tho bars and permit the herd to enter. Ah there, my daisies, are you ready for trial? You arc! Well' then, list to the words of wisdom and jurisprudence which I will now fling at you in large moist gobs." ' "James Holland, I am credibly in-formed that you last night attempted to hoist the green flag of old, Erin over the Tabernacle ' under the im-pression 'that you "had just "captured the house of lords. You were .also noticed pocriug through tho unfinished rooms of tho temple in a search for Balfour, whom you vowed to kill. This is no home rule outfit, aud such conduct as you indulged in is scandalous, you can leave $5 with tho clerk as a me-mento of your visit." James Murphy, at 10:30 o'clock 'last night you were discovered in the act of attempting to remove your surplus whisker with a piece of hoop-irou- . This is a violation of the statute and also of the ordinance. .You will also chip $5." "Leviticus C. Noyes, you stand in tho presence of this court charged with the heinous crime of attempting to extin-guish the lamp of life which illuminates the soft ga.clle-Jik- e eyes .of Miss Daisy Douglas, your sweetheart. . Forgetful of the promise you made when you made your appeal to her and asked her to at least be a sister to you, you went so far as to assault her willi a cloths-wringe- For shame. But for that act you might have been happy in the consciousness of knowing that ono heart beat in uuison with yours. In the brilliant aurora borcalis of the future I cnu see a fading picture of a happy home with you and Daisy hi the foreground. But as I gaze a clothes wringer appears and tho once bright vision vanishes. A man who would thus sacrifice his own interests deserves punishment. Ten dollars or ten days in the pit." "This court will now take the train for Utah lake, where for six hours it will fish for the gamy mountain trout." The Loyal Legion. The tw enty-fift- anniversary of the orgauiza'iou of the Loyal Legion was celebrated last night in the governor's apartments in the commission house by resident members of the military order. The quarter century anniversary was celebrated in all the principal cities of the United States, notably at Philadel-phia. . Lunch was served and tho party spent the evening in relating reminiscences of camp-fir- e aud battle-fiel- stories. Among those present were General Connor, General Penrose, Colonel Page, Colonel Shaut of California, Major Downey, Captain Ward, Captain Joce-lyn- , Captain Hugh Anderson. Captain James Anderson, Captain Bishop, Cap-tain Bailey, Captain Goodhue, Judge Goodwin, and Dr. Meacham. The Delicious Muffin.

The rumor is current this morning that there is to be a change made in the postmastership in this city, prompted a Times reporter to call upon tho two gentlemen most deeply interested. Mr. I. A. Benton, the general ticket agent, was seen at his office at the corner of Main and Second South streets, aiitj, said: "All I know about the matter is what I havo seen in a morning paper. True, I did apply for tho position of postmaster of Salt Lake city some time ago; but I had no idea that any action would be or had been taken on my application, and I was consid-erably surprised this morning when I read tho dispatch referred to. I did not expect that any change would be made in the Salt Lake office until Mr. Barratt's term had expired, nor did I ask that there should be, I simply asked that when a change did occur my claims should be considered," Mr. Barralt was called upon at the postoftice, where he w as found hard at work. "I know absolutely nothing about auy contemplated change," said Mr. Barralt, "nor have I been asked to resign, The dispatch published in a morning paper, however, does mo an injustice, inasmuch as it implies that it is Localise of mismanagement in the Salt Lake office for which 1 am held responsible. Not long ago The Times printed a column relating to this office, and, let me say, it was tho best article on the situation published. Tue Times therein states that Inspector Lawrence distinctly said that so far as tho management of the office was con-cerned everything was in first class order, aud that there was not the least ground for complaint against me, Now, in the face of what Inspector Lawrence said to The Times in my presence, it seems strange thai a contrary report should have been made by him to the department, and I do not believe that be did such a thing. Mr. Lawrence is a gentleman not given to double deal-ing, and I am confident that he never made such a report. Of course, I recognize the right of the department to ask for my resignation at any time, but up to this moment it has not done so." Should the rumor prove true, the postofliee department could not have selected a more thoroughly popular gentleman for postmaster than Mr. Bentou. He is genial, courteous and affable, and is a strictly business man. Of his antecedents the people of Salt Lake do not require to be informed. Irving A. Benton is a native of New Haven, Connecticut, and nineteen years ago he became connected with the rail-way service. He was appointed ticket agent of the Union Pacific at Ogden, April 28. 1881, which position he occu-pied for four years with eminent abil-ity. In May, 1883, he was transferred lo the Union ticket office in this city, and has held that position ever since. Completion of a Reservoir. A reservoir near tho mouth of Six-mil- e creek in Sanpete valley has just been completed by Irri-gating company. The reservoir covers about 400 acres, and when filled to its full capacity will extend much farther. The dam is of red clay, packed, it is said, iu a substantial manner and is twenty-on- e feet above high water mark. It is 120 feet at the bottom and thirty feet at the top, covered on each side with a thick layer of heavy rocks. John Larson, secretary of the com-pany, has asked Acting Fish Commis-sioner Musser to stock the reservoir with young fish. LOCAL 1IREVIT1ES. Bodega Family Wine House, 10 Com-mercial street.

Some of the Salt Lake wheelmen have a griovance at the city council, which laid their petition for sidewalk riding on tho tablo last night without action. They claim tho document should have been considered, aud in support of the assertion submit the petition as follows: The Hon. Mayor and the City Council, Salt Lake City, Utah: Gentlemen It having come to our R that your honorable body anticipate executing an ordinance curtailing the privi-leges of wheelmen, especially in regard to rid-ing upon the sidewalks, we wish to protest against t he same aud otter the following, as we think valid reasons for such protest: First Our sidewalks are broad and unoccu-pied, (compared with other cities). Second Our streets are, for many months tn the year, very muddy aud unrideable and for other months dusty and rutty. Third Any wheelman prefers the street when it is rldcable as the gutters of the side walk are very destructive to the machine, and we think when the pavements are completed will do away with sidewalk riding without tho enactment of any ordinance. Fourth So far as any harm resulting from riding among pedestrians we would call your attention to the fact that in tho past ten years no one has been seriously hurt. In fact no one lias lost a day by any injury resulting from collision with a bicycle (except perhaps the bi-cycler himself). If there is any danger It is ten to one that it will be the wheetman. Fifth The fraternity of wheelmen of this city represent an intelligent and law abiding class no class of people stand higher in this or any part of the world. They are men and women helping to build up the country, aud am not of the transient or evanescent order. They are here to Btay. Sixth If any harm should occur to any pe-destrian by reason of tho carelessness of any wheelman though in view of past facts there is more damage to be apprehended from an open or closed umbrella the person Injured may at all times recover damages through the regular courts. As a matter of note, there has not been such a suit entered since wheelmen became a necessity in this city. Seventh The bicycle has become a great factor in social, political aud domestic econ-omy. Not only hundreds but thousands, oven millions, of people now vide. Tho Germun army has several thousand enlisted wheelmen. England is looking to the same. Since tho in-vention of the ladles' bicycle many thousands of ladles put thorn to good use. They are much more adaptable, comfortable and enjoy-able to a lady than the use of a horse would be aud are thus growing largely in public favor. To compel them to take our rough streets would deprive ladies of one of the greatest boons ever bestowed upon her in the way of a health-givin- exercise. Women will raiue a race of men that will be glorious when the bicycle has been in use a hundred yoars. Eighth The Increase in the number of riders of the wheel means that each and all will strive to improve the roads. Their influence is materially felt now in the east. Ninth We desire to urge upon your minds that with the Improvement of streets sidewalk riding would be Instinctively abandoned, and until some Improvements are made we deem it an injustice to a large class of taxpayers to de-prive us of riding where thero is so much room and so little if any harm. We consider that prejudice has often ruled in matters compara-tively new to the world when reason would not have curtailed privileges. We deem tt a mat-ter of mere Justice between man and man that no action be token iu this matter until we have further conference with your honorable body, or better that it be shelved entirely until the street improvements now in contemplation by the city are completed. This was signed hy twenty-eigh- t wheelmen. PERSONAL. A party of Salt Lake ladies consisting of Mrs. M. M.

A Successful Electric Mining Machine In-vented at Last. McKeesport, Pa., Times. The mining of coal by machinery has been a subject of experiment for a great many years. A number of machines have been tried, but for one reason or another have been cast aside as imprac-ticable. Since electricity has developed several electrical machines have been invented and they, too, so far, have not been successful, until the Michales electrical mining machine was evolved. This invention originated with Capt. M. A. Michales of Pittsburg, and was per-fected by him and his partner, Dr. O S. Weddell, of this city. The invention is covered by patents, has been tested successfully and is pronounced by all experts who have seen it at work lo be the long sought for machine. The machine is mounted on a d truck, is nine feet in length, two and one-hal- f in breadth, two and two-third- s in height and weighs about 800 pounds. It is mounted with a two-hors- e electric motor from which the power is transmitted to the working parts beneath. Extending from the front of the machine is the pick which does tho coal digging. The mechanism throws this pick back and forth hori-zontally and by pushing the truck close enough to the wall of coal the pick eats its way into the coal as a miner under-mines and shears the ends with a hand pick, and the coal is thrown down. The machine strikes 120 blows a min-ute with a force of 9,000 pounds to the blow. The current to operate the ma-chine is carried to it by wires attached to the roof or sides of the mine and the latter can by this same means be lighted by incandescent lamps. It requires ono man and a helper to operate the machine. It will undercut 4 feet aud take out the bench across a 27 foot room in two hours throwing down between ten and fifteen tons of coal. The machine is in operation at the Essen mine near Mansfield now, and it has been in practical operation for the last six months. The owners are about to form a stock company capitalized at $500,000 to manufacture the machines for the market. Tho new machine is expected: to revolutionize the business of eoal mining.
