The President of tlie Central Paci
fic Railroad Company is represented
as saying tliat he and Ins associates
had paid out eleven million dollars
for steel and iron rails more than
would have been paid without a pro
tective tariff. A short time ago rails
could huve been bought for $40 a
ton, which now costs $75. The boun
ties which are now paid for the pro
duction of iron and steel rails in this
country are enormous. The Salt

Farmers will do well to call on me before making arrangements elsewhere
plied other roaas. '1 he Central Pa
cific would not only have had all the
protection which is furnished by the
Pennsylvania men, but would have
had the added pro tec ion which coraes
of 2,500 miles of transportation. If
the Pennsylvania iron manufacturers
have so rich a harvest, why could
not the Central Pacific Company have
been wilting to double that harvest
for themselves? It would not only
have bej'n a boon to them, but a
blessing to Nevada. It would have
given hnndieds of nun work; there
and in the mountains beyond it
would have supported 1,000 families.
The Company had unlimited capita';
it had facilities for securing the most
capable workmen; it had an unlimi
ted field for '.he product of its manu
factory. The Company now has its own
rolling mill. It manufactures cars
and locomotives. Five new locomo
tives have just been placed on the
Oakland lorry routes adapted to
that trafic. The Company lias re-
ceniiy ixiuni a coai mine in asii
ington Territory, from whence it
will draw supplies for its vast system
of railroads. The fact that it has
already established r. rolling mill to
work up old and worn out rails, is
evidence of a purpose to go further
at a future day. The time will come
shortly when no iron rails will be
used on any of the more important
roads in the Pacific States.
Where they will be made is another
'question. 1 litre aaajgajt bodies of
iron ore in California, Utah, Colora
do and in Arizona Territory. In
the latter country there are said also
to be deposits of anthracite coal at
no great distance from the line of
New Mexico. There are vast bod
ies of iron ore in Alaska, as well as
in Oregon, although, taken as a whole
the Pacific Coast country has not
been thought to be rich in the better
class of iron ores, and it certainly is
not rich in coals suitable for smelt
ing. There are no coals in Califor
nia, so far as is now known, beyond
the crude deposits known as lignite,
and probably not a ton of genuine
anthracite coal has been laid down
at this port which was procured
within the limits generally designa
ted as the Pacific Coast. If charcoal
could be made cheaply enough, iron
could be produced with little diffi
culty. The furnaces in Oregon, and
the iron works recently initiated in
Placer county, in this Slate, will
probably give a good account ot
production hereafter. A few years
hence the production of stell rails on
this side of the Rocky Mountains,
will become an important industry.
Railway companies which make their
own cars and locomotives, will not
iguore any possibie advantage there
may be in the manufacture of rails
for local use. San Francisco

One crime, which was committed
here only a short time ago, I must
describe. Mrs. Maxwell came to
Sail Lake City with her husband in
1869. Two years afterward her bus
band took another wife, and one year
subsequent he was sealed to a third
Mrs. Maxwell objected, and in order to
prevail over her sons she told them the
secrets of the Endowment House. The
penalty for revealing these secrets is
dismemberment of the body, cutting of
the throat, and tearing out of thetongue.
Mr. Maxwell overheard his wife, being
in an adjoining room, and forthwith he
infomed the Elders, who sent for the
unfortunate woman and her two sons,
They were taken into what is called the
"Dark pit," a blocd-atoning room under
Brigham Young's house. The woman
was then stripped of all her clothes and
then tied on thp back to a large table.
Six members of the priesthood then per
formed their damnadle crime; they first
cut of their victim's tongue, and then
cut her throat, after which her logs and
arms were served. The sons were com
pelled to stand by and witness the
dreadful slaughter of their mother
They were then released and' given
twenty -four hours to get out of the Ter
ritory, which was then an impossibility,
The sons went then to the house of a
friend, to whom they related the butch
ery of their mother, and then geting a
package of provisions started, but on
the following morning were both dead
they had met the Danites. One
other ease similar to the above occur-
ed about five years ago in the City
Hall. These are truths, and the lady
to whom the sons told their story is
willing to make affidavit to the facts if
she can be guaranteed immunity from
M onnon vengeance.
