I 4 " ' . THE SALT LAKE TIMES, FKIDAY EVENING, APRIL 11, 1890. ing with the agents of great Iron und stool manufacturers for a speedy devel-opment of Utah's iron and coal fields. IJBOVNTIKS J OB HOA1K MANUFACTURE. I At a recent session of the Utah legis-- s lalure it was enacted, that from tho territorial treasury there should be paid certain bounties on home products manufactured and mado marketable , within a certain time iu this The territory. law itself is not at present before us, but, from memory The Times wilt Mention two staple articles, sugar and iron, the first of which has been manu-factured fromtho sugar beet iu Utah with good results. Quito a large crop of sugar beet of superior Sftcoharmo quality lias been raised in Utah. It compares very favorably with the California ar-ticle both in quality and in quantity. The bounty to bo paid is, wo think, $20 per ton of manufactured sugar of a fixed grade. On tho favorable report of a committee of business men, up. pointed to investigate homo and out-side manufactures of sugar from tho bcetand from sorghum, an incorporated company has beeu formed to push this branch of business tho coming season, and to avail themselves of tho generous bounty offered. So much in favor of our great agricultural interest. It is well known that Utah beats any equal area for the quantity and quality of its huge mountains and deposits of iron ore. Kcports of scientific mon of uatioual reputation establish this fact. A bounty of some $J per ton on iron mined in Utah is given, and for each ton of cast-iro- pipe from Utah ore a bounty of $5 is allowed. With a fer-tile soil growing prolific crops of raw material for the manufacture of sugar, together with an inexhaustible supply of tho best iron ore, accessible to rail-way transportation, cheaply mined and contiguous to great fields of coking coal, we can with good grace invite labor and capital to an early development of Utah resources on these Hues. In fact it is known to a few interested parties, that negotiations are uow peud- - HI range nt. Attention.

' Tliere is a dusty ha.e in the air from falling walls and old-tim- e roof trees now being leveled to make room for liner residences and more capacious business houses. Tho city sewer work is being driven to completion. City railways arc in process of completion and en-largement. The water mains are reaching out their arteri-es, carrying health and comfort in their gushing streams. Building ma-terial is In great demand at advanced prices. The suggestive cries of "More mort," "more brick," echo along tho busiuess lines, not always with satisfac-tory response, for the demand is greater than the supply. Paving districts for streets and sidewalks are being organ-ized and the owners of rock and paving material are feeling the public pulse with reference to the kind of ma-terial likely to bo most in demand. Gravel, shale, sand-bed- lire and build-iu- g clay, in fact, all kinds of crude ma-terial which can bo utilized for prac-tical purposes, and which lie conven-ient to thiseity, arc claimed and located as valuable property by men who, a few months ago would not have taken these claims as a gift. In connection with the military reservation oil the East bench, it is expected that congress will appropriate money and labor to trans-form tho sage-covere- d plat lying be tweeu the boundaries of the city and the military post, into an attractive park and drive, adding alike to the pleasure of soldiers and citizens. Tho once bare and sparsely settled valley west of the eity and of the Jordan river, is lilling up with cottages and tree-line- streets, and connected with the city by steam and shortly by elec-tric cars. Alio lake shore is in process of im-provement for the bathing season, and within a year or two, at farthest, beauti-ful Antelope island, with its sandy beach, fresh water springs and freedom from dust and mud, will be eonuected with the main land by a railway built upon piles. Antelope bathing place is yet to be the most pleasant and desira-ble of all the summer bathing resorts on this continent. from which small loans at low interest be made to farmers on long time, tak-ing as collateral security their lauded they property on which can labor and improve their conditions as well as tho value of the land mortgaged; where is the risk, and who is harmed? Not the nation, for these loaus en-able the producer to relieve themselves from the grasping usurers and land mo-nopolies, and at the same time secure the republic from wide-sprea- disaster and general bankruptcy. Tho millions loaned go nt once into general circula-tion and relieve a great and pressing want. The nation gives to the capital-ist the right to issue paper money and scatter it broadcast and takes as secur-ity for its redemption its own notes or bonds. Why not issue treasury notes to a much more deserving class, taking equally as good security and thus se-cure itself from impending loss? A STATESMANLIKE I'UOl'OSITION. To tho Editor of Tub Times-- . Senator Stanford's proposition to re-lieve that great producing class of the country, tho farmers, appears to servo a purpose, in that every witling in the country must have his fling at this broad and level-heade- d statesman. Most of the superficial writers, whether of paragraphs or editorials in nowspapers or more elaborate magazines articles. take it for granted that tho senator's proposition would take a large sum from tho surplus in the national treasury and scatter it broadcast over the union. Not a dollar would be so taken. Congress has the right to loan money in this way. Tho nation has a right in e to issue bills of credit, promissory notes with collateral security behind them. This backing up may be gold, silver or land, all three, of them always have an intrinsic value.' Allowing a sufficient margin for varying markets, all three of these intrinsically valuable and eudur-in- g properties, have a permanence at-tached to them so that in the long run and especially as regards improved laud, age increases their value. The nation's necessities in time of war. w.-ir-- raut and demand extra exertions for which it has ample power. As the legitimate result of its suicidal legislation iu driving silver from circu-lation aud affixing u stigma upon it bankruptcy stares the producing classes' of this country in the face. The debtor class and the farmers generally lin, members of it is in trouble and at i the mercy of the creditor class. Fore-closure of mortgaged farms and largo accumulation of arable land in few hands is becoming too common and the nation as a whole is in danger of suffer-ing as by tho besom of war. In vj,.w- - 0f this national disaster, suppose an is.sue of bills of credit, in other words treas-ury notes on a legal tender b.is Why l'ay Kent When you can own vour own home on such easy terms?

Tho United Stales senate has changed the time for holding the, morning ses-sion from 11 o'clock until noon. It is not fair to expect Pctligiw, Wolcott, Vest and the other lovers of the national game to discuss tho merits of a straight flush and four of a kind all night and solve the less intricate problems of statesmanship all day. j How about thoso cheap excursions from Omaha, Kansas City and Denver to Salt Lake? The scheme which was suggested several weeks ago, is a good one, and should not bo abandoned. It lias been worked successfully by other western cities, and thnro is no reason why Salt Lake can't do tho same thing. Tho real cstato exchange should tako this matter under immediate considera-tion, and arrange for excursions during June, July and August, aud then do some extensive advertising. IUtlCK FOK KTKEET PAVEMENT. Somo people, who are not posted and up with the times, laugh at the idea of brick being used for street pavement. It may surprise such persons to learn that brick has been utilized for street-pavin- g purposes for a number of years in several eastern cities, and has stood tho test of lime and wear. Urick is used as a pavement iu Whoceling, 'W. Va., Peoria, 111., and Omaha, Lincoln aud Beatrice, Neb., and in other places. It has been . strongly indorsed by the Omaha board of public works. At the recent paving-materia- l exposition in Iudianapolis, brick pavement occupied a prominent place and attracted a great deal of attention from city officials who went there from all parts of the county to thoroughly investigate the costs and the durability aud other qual-ities of tho various kinds of paving ma-terial on exhibition. .Brick made a most favorable impression upon every-body, especially for the paving of resi-dence streets. The cost is reasonable, and should it be adopted for any of the streets of Salt, Lake tho homo manufac-ture of brick will receive quite a boom. The Daily Gaaetlo-Tribuu- e of Kokomo, Indiana, in speaking of tho paving exposition at Indianopolis, says: Samples of tho different kinds of piiv-in-each JIiimo or four feet square, were oti exhibition showinir all the ma. ferial used in their construction. The kind that attracted the best attention of the officials and regarded as the most practical for this cily was the pavement constructed of brick and gravel. Streets made by this method are graded tho same as where macadam is used after which a layer of gravel is put on, then a layer of brick llatwise as Inordinary sidewalks. On this is put another layer of gravel and another course of brick set edgewise as close together as they can bo laid. The brick used must bo tho very hardest that can bo burned vitrified brick. It is claimed that streets made in this manner will last a half a century with little or no repairs. When the brick becomes worn ou tho crown of tho streot they can be taken out and turned bottom eilgo up. making it as good aa now. Streets built in this way will come as near lasting forever as anything yet mado, or thought of. Tho cost of building, includingsidewalksand gutters, is about 0 per lineal foot, not quite double tho expense of macadam. A Poem With it Monti. Chicago Herald.

It is presumed that tho Russian influenza or "la grippe," w hich has raged over the old ami iicw world, was caused by tho de-composed bodies of the millions of Chi-lies- o victims of the great river Hoods in that country. This world is a great charnel house, and unless its inhabit-ants with the purifying ele-ments of earth, air and sea in fitting it for the abode of its multiplying mil-lions, plagues, local aud general, will rage and riot, in human sorrow and death. ' HCR.Vl'S. At Auburn, Cal., a womau was watch-ing her hens which were scratching iu the garden, when she saw them unearth a bright object aud try their bills upon it. She took it into tho house and it proved to be a chunk of gold worth $57. Doctors, as a rule, are reticent about their fees, but Dr. Willard Parker was paid $IU0.000 for the successful removal of an excrosence from the face and neck of the son and heir of one of the wealth-iest families in the vicinity of New York. An elephant at Philadelphia died sud-denly the other day from enlargement of tho heart. Its heart was found to be abnormally large. It more than filled a washlub, und weighed 102 pounds.

The miuister said his usual fee was $5. "Twouo do lit all givee," said the Ch'naman. The clergy- man did not fancy :.iis cut iu the rate's, but took it all the same. In Siam you can get good board for forty-fiv- e cents a week, and this in-cludes washing, the use of two servants to run errands, tickets to shows, three shaves and all the cigars you cau smoko. But it is almost impossible to earn forty-liv- e cents a w eek in Siam. On a recent trial in Wales to test the validity of a will it was proved that in the testator became impaired in intellect to such an extent that he went to the postoflice with a postage stamp on his forehead and requested to be sent to a place he meutioned. As an instance of the loss of stock in the John Day section, Oregon, it is re- lated that two piles of dead horses were found on Bridge Creek, one of eighteen and tho other of nine head. Thev had evidently huddled together to escape the cold and perished one by one. Small-po- has broken out in an Eng- lish settlement known as the "Peculiar People.' whose doctrines include a dis-belief in the efficacy of doctors or med-icine. The most that tho health au- thorities havo been able lo do has been to enforce the isolation of patients. A passenger ear on the Boston and Maine railway was ignited by steam heat a few days auo, and it was neces-sary lo cut out a part of the floor to quench out the (lames. The incident is not calculated to reassure believers in the absolute safety of steam as a heat-ing agency. The mining exchange, which was first suggested by The Times, is an as-sured success. It will bo in full opera-tion in about two weeks. When iu good working condition it can in vari-ous ways assist lo a wonderful extent the mining industries of Utah. That should be one of the chief objects of the organ-ization. Professor Hirschling hit the nail on tho head when he suggested that not ouly the mines now in opera-tion should bo looked after and their interests advanced, but prospectors should bo aided iu developing new mines which gave indications of a prom-ising nature. LlKCTtKANT Stlklh, who was con-icte- d of conduct unbecoming an officer and a goutleman iu striking Private Wild, has been sentenced to bo reprimanded and to be confined within 1 he limits of his post for three months. The sentence is hardly severe enough, "but it may servo tho purpose of teach-ing a lesson to certain army officers who aro too much inclined to bull-dozin- g and tyrannizing. Supposo a private, even under great provocation, should striko an officer, what would bo his puuishmuntf It would be about threo years' imprisonment instead of three months confinement. Notice.
