Railroad to Fielding. E. O. Wilcox of Fielding was in Brigham Tuesday on business connected with securing a right-of-wafor the ,Malad Valley railroad from the sugar factory north to Fielding. Mr. Wilcox says that the Utah Sugar company has made a proposition to extend the railroad to Fielding provided the people there will raise three bundled acres of sugar beets and furn-s- h the right-of-wa- y free. The required acreage has been and the right-of-wa- y has been nearly secured though some difficulty has been encountered with a few properly owners but it is believed that this will soon be settled.

Malin, brakeman on a freight train shot and fatally wounded Pat Cortello, a tramp who was trying to beat his way to Ogden. When the train stopped at Matlin Malin and another brakeman named Stevenson found some tramps In one of the cars and told them to get out. They al did so hut when Castello got out he pulled a pistol and ordered the brakemen to throw up their hands. MaliD threw his up, but Stevenscn began to run. Costello then began shooting at him but missed him each time. Malin, seeing his companions danger, then pulled out his pistol and shot Costello twice, one bullet going through the lower part of the stomach and tbe other took effect In the groin. The wounded man was put on tbe train and taken to Ogden where be was placed in the hospital. The oext morning the two brake-meE. T.

D. Peters for the city and Mr. Jensen for the Electric Light Co , met In the eouncil chambers, Monday, March 2nd, at 10 a. m. for the purpose of placing a valuation upon the old electric plant and also auditing the accounts of the work done on the contemplated new plant. We had proceeded but a short way in our deliberations until it became evident that a disagreement would occur. We therefore made an effort to agree on a third person. After many attempts the name of Mr. Orson Hudson was suggested and submitted to the Electric Light company by Mr. Jensen and afterwards to the mayor and to two of the city council by Mr. Peters. Both parties expressed a willingness to accept him as a third appraiser. Accordingly we made the appointment and on Thursday, March 5th, met for the purpose of taking up the matter anew and proceeded to consider the appraisement of the old electric light plant and auditing of the accounts in connection with the work of the contemplated new plant and the following is the appraisement as agreed upon by a majority of the appraisers The committee were unanimous as to the accounts, viz: $2377.90. Respectfully submitted, J. D. Peters, M. M. Jensen, Orson Hudson.

They have In prospect for the coming year a sugar factory, a railroad, two electric light plants, a canning factory and, ye gods! another canal. But how is it to be done? The people will have to go in debt to build the canning factory and especially the canal Tbe city will have to go into debt to build the electrie light plant. All we can see is debt, debt, nothing but debt. In answer, I call attention to the fact that all these improvements are good, sound financial enterprises; and there never was a financial enterprise established without involving a debt in some way or another. Debt always has and always will figure in the development of any and all resources that are developed. The west side canal or the Brigham city water system would never have been in existence today if the promoters had been afraid of debt. None of these prospective enterprises will ever be established if we wait until it can be done without debt. There is justifiable and unjustifiable debt. It is neither wise nor prudent to go into debt for unprofitable things, especially the luxuries of life. II becomes necessary at times to contract a justifiable debt. The people should not let debt stand between them and these enterprises, because they mean so much for the developmeut and progress of our community.
