There is no themselves and invest somo of their surplus wealth in the enterprises here roughly mapped out, instead of buying corner lots and running them up to fictitious prices, they would do more good to the towu and add more honor to their names. Too much speculation has ruined many towns, but money spent in legitimate enterprises in buildiug up needed industries is not speculation, but is sure to pay a fair interent on the money invested, ft honestly and sensibly handled. United enort will accomplish wuat would be impossible for an individual. All great enterprises now are under the management of joint stock companies or associations in some form ana under many names. What is wanted in Ugden, just now, is a large and strong company of men of capital and known integrity and business ability and of unimpeachable character to assume and hold the direction of somo, if not all, of these industries, and push them through to completion. The people would be willing to assist a far as their means would allow, but tbey would be sure to want to know that the enterprises were feasible Bnd that they would be honestly carried out.

The iron was found to lie of the very beat quality. The town at that time was hardly up to tha Etandard of enterprise thut it is today, and beside, it was much poorer than now. Furthermore, it was not looked unon bv the railroads as a very desirable thing to have iron works here at that time. The railroads liked to liave the job of hauling ail the iron used here, bnt it makes it very expensive to us who Lave to use it The money sent J mil of Ogden never t o return amounts lo millions or dollars, niuen 01 mis caum be kept at home if iron works could be started oa a Rood substantial paying basis. It would pay the people of Ogden lo encourage such an enterprise by paying ft largo bonus to any good and responsible company to put such a plant in good working order and guarantee to the concern all their custom, even if they could buy cheaper elsewhere, because the company would spend its money here. The employes would spend their wages here, and bnild their homes here, bo the money would remain in the family, as it were. The same thing might be said of a woolen factory, a tannery, or a cotton tantoTr. Thore are thousands of people in this country who have served a long apprenticeship at the various industries, but wno are now wonting as wuimuu laborers or servants because there is nothing for them to do in their regular line of work.
