THAT COMING BOOM.
Should He Ihilrd With Delight by Pro
There seems to he a universally prevail
ing sentiment that another huoin Is coin
In K. Newspapers In every section of the
couutiy herald Its appin.iih. Some, as If
It Is to he regarded as a suit ol cyclone;
others as II it may he dreaded as a pestil
ential scourge, and others again as It It
will prove a hoon and savior to all sec
tions alike. So far as the Mining Review
is concerned, we say, let the hoom come
as quickly as it may I Some people living
here who think they passed through a
genuine hoom Imagine that all sorts ol
injurious results followed the little activity
this locality enjoyed in 1888 and i88y. It
was in no sense of the word n hoom. It
was hut the tall end of the Kansas City,
Deliver and Los Angeles genuine hoom.
How were those cities elfected by it?
They grew from absolutely insignifi
cant places to gre.it nourishing cities.
Twenty-live years ago Salt Lake was in
reality larger than any ol the cities named.
How do they stand now? Ihe hoom gave
to Denver nearly seventy miles of paved
streets, a ttolly system of stieet car ser
vice only surpassed by St. Louis; a per
led system of drainage, two w.iter works
system, an unlimited number ol titst class
hotels, and the most complete illuminating
plant to be found anywhere.
Then too It brought to Colorado new
spirits new energy new Ideas backed
by capital, and the combination wrought
the marvelous changes that only inepres
slble, ambitious men can piodtice. The
old timers had In a measure grown used
to all the rare opportunities and vast re
sources and they could not seethe illimi
table possibilities like the new comets,
who had been surrounded by cramped in
virouments and restricted conditions; but
when the new blood was injected the
I his section is positively threatened
with a monstrous boom the Review hails
it with delight. House renting agencies
declare they cannot supply the demand;
real estate linns e.xpress much gratifica-'
ti.ui In the activity and advancing prices 1
and, best of all, every linn in Salt Lake'
City handling mining machinery Is busy j
every hour In the day supplying the'
wants ol customers all over this inter-1
mountain country. It surely appears as
if a thorough, animated, enlivened boom I
is heading our way, and the Review en-.
entreats many of the fossilized, nntl-1
quated spirits not to put anything hi its '
way. Salt Lake Mining Hevlew. '

Man Who D'xovertd Gold In California.
A Salt Lake dispatch of November 26,
gives the following account of the death
of the man who made the record of the
tirst gold discovered in California in 1848:
Henry W. Higler, the man who made the
first record of the great California gold
discovery in 1848, died at St. George,
Utah, on Saturday of pneumonia. He
was about 75 years of age. His record
ol gold discovery reads "Monday, 24th.
I his day some kind of metal was found
in the tail race that looks like gold."
This entry was made on January 24,
1848. Six days later, on January 30,
Higler made the following entry. "Clear,
and has been for the last week. Our
metal has been tried and proves to be
gold. It is thought to be rich. We have
picked up more than a hundred dollars
worth In the last week." Higler was a
member of the Mormon batalllon and was
working at Sutter's mill race when the
discovery was made. He and three others
were guests of honor at the California
golden jubilee in 1898. The other three
men are yet living, James S. Brown, of
Salt Lake, Azarlah Smith, of Mantl,
Utah, and WilliamS. Johnston of Ramah,
