Purchases or Coal Lands by Parties Wro Are I'oiitBil. Large sales of coal lands in the vicin-ity of Craig, Routt 'county, are being made to parties who arc in Denver from Chicago and Sioux City. One sale of 801) acres was made yesterday, says the, Denver Republican. The gentlemen who are making thess purchases are interested in the new Sioux City & Paoih'e line, known other-wise as tlie St. Paul, Sioux ("it v & Pa-cific, which is to be constructed through Nebraska and Colorado to Salt Lake City. They state that work on the road is to commence at once. The' road is surveyed from Sioux City westward, through Nebraska, to a point northeast of Cheyenne.- - Jt thene runs southweslwardly to Denver, and from Denver will go through Left-Haiu- l canyon into Middle park to Hot Sul-phur Springs, thence to Steamboat Springs, Craig, and along the Yampa, to its mouth on 'Green river, and up Strawberry creek to Salt Lake. Four corps of surveyors are in the hold west of Denver, and the line is in nearly ac-ceptable shape for the This assures Denver u shorter line to Salt Lake by 200 miles than any now iuopeiation. Funk in Expected. Agent Funk, of tho Union Pacific, at l'ocatello, is expected hero in a few days. Delias been offered the position of freight agent in this city, made vacant by the resignation of Mr. Morris and has written that he will come anil look over the lield. It is very generally un-derstood that Mr. Funk will accept the position. Kuiluny Noli: , ' C. II. Robinson, of tho Denver & Rio Grande, is in the city today. Suporii.tendeul Convin left last even-ing for a short trip over tho northern lines. A telegram from General Manager Resseguie announced hi arrival in Omaha this morning. Mayor Scott and the city council went up to' Ogden thin morning on the Rio Grande Western "Kli" train. The Rio Grande Western has ordered six new consolidated freight engines from the Baldwin Locomotive works. Tlie Colorado Midland has had a break with the Santa Fe, and will run its trains over tlie D. & R. G. tracks hereafter. s Bancroft will probably accept asuperintendeucy with the Northern Pacific, although he has also received a very Haltering offer from an eastern road. WELDING THE LINK. The Work of Constructing the Broad Gauge Between Eifle and Grand Junc-tion Going On. . TO BE COMPLETED BY SEPTEMBEE. Col, Dodge Still in the City Popularity of "The Times" Flyer-Pac- ific Coal Land Purchases. Mr. Welby, the new superintendent of the Rio Grande Western, after being yesterday introduced to the oilier em-ployes of 'the road by Mr. Bancroft, tho superintendent, took hold in earnest this morning. He is well pleased with Salt Lake City, and expects to find his new position a most agreeable one. General Manager Dodge is still in the city, and will remain several days yet. It is more thau probable that the aboli-tion of the office of general superin-tendent will make it necessary for him in fill lire to spend considerable of his lime in this city. Mr. Welby's position is but that of a division superintendent, and Col. Dodge will himself have to look after many details of the work which was formerly attended to by General Suporiutej.dcnl Bancroft. Col. Dodge expects to see the Rio Grande Western broad-guae- trains running into Denver and Pueblo by September 1st. The work on the broad-guag- line between Rifle mid Grand Junction is progressing as rap-idly as possible. The delay up to the present time has been caused by the in-ability to secure men, but a large force is at work now and the lino will be com-pleted hy September 1st. Thirty-liv- e miles of track have been laid up to the present-lime- and of the thirty miles that remain, most of the heavy work is completed and lies dis-tributed most of the way. The grading is all done and the tunnel has been opened. The piling and approaches for the bridges are also ready, so that construction will progress rapidly from uow on. ! At the Tennessee pass tunnel work is going along at the rate of fifteen feet a day and the great tunnel will bo open from end to end, it is claimed, before tho specified time, whieli is Sept. 1st. As soon as this line is completed the transfer of freight at Grand Junction will be a thing of the past and a great saving in both time and money will be the result. The completion of this line means much for tho Rio Grande West-ern, for although tho work of construc-tion is being carried on by the Mid-land, the line when completed will be operated by the Midland and the Rio Grande Western in conjunction. It Will lie a C.ivat Hook. Milton B. Oehs, advertising agont of the Colorado Midland RaiFwny com-pany, is in the city today. Mr. Oehs comes hero for the purpose of confer-ring with the Rio Grande Western of-ficials in regard to tho new tourists guide that is now heing published by tho Western and Midland roads. The book will bo called "The Heart of the Rockies," and will, without exception, be tho finest book of the kind over pub-lished. Tho proof sheets are now being read. It is to bo profusely illustrated, and will contain nearly 200 pages of solid reading matter. The design of the cover is a work of the highest I merit. Home Significant Question. A correspondent of the "Omaha Bee asks the following significant questions in regard to tho reasons for the con-struction of the Pacific Short Line: Do the citizens of Omaha know why tho Pacific Short Line has been built 125 miles due west from Sioux City to O'Neill, Neb., and is today under cou-- , tract for construction tlie entire dis-- 1 tanee thence to Ogden, Utah, to a con-nection there with tho Central Pacific? It is largely because by building that eouuectiou upoil a lower capitalization than the Union Pacific or any old Chi-,eag- o road, and by the advantago of the low upper lako competition at Sioux City, t lie position of this now transcon-tinental line is impregnable. VVhy tho Union Pacific-Nort- h western-Vanderbil- t .alliance? Why the tremendous efforts of that combine to light back tfce new construction westward? The reason is (the same, F. F. Kccleg In Charge. Mr. F. F. Eccles, the new city ticket iiigeut of the Union Pacific lines, this imoruing had his' new office in good shape and was doing a rushing busi-ness' His advent in the general offices lias rather crowded things, but by mov-ing closer together, room was "made, lie occupies the corner between the two largo corner windows where Mr. Wilson formerly held forth. Mr, Eccles said this morning that the blazing sun ,of the past few days had caused a great rush for Garfield beach, and yesterday and today ho sold thousands'of tickets for that point. The carnival at, Ogden has, coutrary to expectations, not had any appreciable effect on the popularity of the beach. Tho Time' Flyer. Thk Timks' flyer on the Kio Grande Western is proving by far the most pop- ular of all the trains 'to Ogden. People who are going to the carnival all want to go on tho "Jlver." The phenomenal time made by the "flyer" is tlie cause of this rush. Bv special arrangements with TnKTiMKs'tho "llyer" will always carry us many passengers as can be ac-commodated. A PROMISING FIELD. Mr. Geo. L. Eggers Now Investigating the Oil and Gas Eesouroes of the Territory. ES THINKS BOTH WILL BE FOUND. A Practical Oil Man Looking Tor Evi-dences of Petroleum in Utah. - Mr. George L. Eggers. general mana-ger of the Wyoming and Denver Oil Pipe Line company, is in tho city. He will spend some weeks in Utah and thoroughly investigate the petroleum aud natural gas resources of tho ter-ritory. Mr. Eggers is an old time Peunsyl--vani- a oil operator. He has been en-gaged in developing the oil resources of the west since 18S4, and since that time has visited every part of the west where there was any promise of oil or gas.' His many years experience in the Pennsylvania oil fields has made him au invaluable man to western op-erators. Mr. Eggers attention was turned ! Utah by tho recent articles in Thk Times, describing the natural gas strikes here and the movement on foot to mako a thorough search for pe-troleum. He said this morning that th prospects for bo.h oil and gas in Utali were much more favorable than lie had expected and ho is confident that both uuderlie Salt Lake City in good paying quantities. The geologi-cal formation, lie said, promised well. 'J'ho remarkable even fnrmatbn of ilie slratashero surprised him, as ho had expected to find them much broken by vulrauic action. "The vicinity of Salt Lake City." he said, "is a splendid field for operations. I have not yet been able to make more thun a superlieial examination but nm confident that oil and gas will be found. The gas from the we'lls already struck is a good indication of a much atioro plentiful supply at a greater depth. What you now have Is not enough to be of any great com-mercial value but it promises well for the future. . "Natural gas or oil," he said, "would prove an immense boon to Salt Lake. Tour people want manufactories here, and to get them the very first question they will have to Solve is that of cheap fuel. You have the raw materials in abundance. Show the capitalists of the east that you can give them cheap fuel too, and it will bo impossible to keep them out. ' In regard to the Wyoming oil fields, Sir. Eggers said that his company owned about 00.000 acres in the Rattle-snake mining district, in tho new county of Natrona. On almost every claim of this land an:- - oil spring bubbles up from which oil is con-stantly flowing and in many places the gas escapes from crevices of rocks in large 'quantities. The field has, however, a3 yet been only pros-pected, but so promising is it that both the Standard Oil company and a big English syndicate is after it. The company has put dowu several wells close to the ind River moun-tains, which vary in depth from 350 to 800 feet. The best of these wells pro-duce about 1,000 barrels per day. In color, this oil is black. When fresh it contains a large amount of absorbed gas, and it will yield both illuminating aud lubricating oil of excellent quality when distilled, and a residue which can be used as fuel for steam making. Utah, Mr. Eggers thought, was an Mfea more promising field than Wyom-ing, aud he said that the prospects lor gas and oil were much better than lu Colorado fields, which now produce about 2000 barrels of oil per day.. The Florence field alone supplying Colorado, Utah and New Mexico.' lie is of the opinion that the proposed search for oil at Green Biver, in this territory, will prove suc-cessful. LOCAL HKEVITIF.S.
