Title Gleanings
Description returning the same, as they are needed. C.P. Billings, Street Supervisor." Early in 1894 the paper, on February 2, featured a story which was headed "No Statehood Yet." This text then followed: The Democrats afraid to admit Utah into the Union...The leaders here [Washington, D.C.) under the entreaties of Delegate Hawkins and John T. Caine, have given assurances" they wished to pass the necessary bill, but Utah was not included. The article said Democrats were afraid of admitting Utah and also afraid of admitting their fear. Going on, the item read, The announcement in the republican steering committee that non-admission would be the democratic policy, was the truth."

On February 9. 1894. the paper reported Delegate Hawkins thinks the Utah bill will pass sometime, adding. The outlook at present is very gloomy." This issue also reported on Territorial Legislature activity in which a bill to move the capital from Salt Lake City to Provo was debated. There was also a bill to protect fish and game and to abolish a previously passed act to destroy hawks and sparrows. March 9th Manti City Council meeting reported, "Jacob Wintch, supervisor of streets, asked permission to purchase a keg of spikes and a crowbar. Granted." Jacob Wintch was my maternal grandfather. More Territorial Legislature activity covered in this issue gave bills passed, which included new counties and election of officers, education of blind children, amendment to justices of peace laws, and eight-hour day for public works, and uniform free schools throughout the territory 52
