Title Twelve Mormon Homes, page 002
Description ran down Salt Lake Valley while the mountains on our left were still in shadow, but the golden sunrise was resting on the tops of those on our right, and gradually slanting down towards the plain. The snow had melted from all but the highest sum- mits, and some of these were only veined with it in their ravines. Stepping to the rear of the car to look at a trestle-work that was very long and very high for timberless Utah, we had a beautiful view of the city we had left, nestling at the foot of the mountain; the blue Salt Lake, and Antelope Island in the dis- tance. The dreamy tranquillity of the scene was succeeded by a busy one at SANDY STATION. We stopped to visit the newly- established smelting works of an English company, managed by Germans.' Outside, lay heaps of ore, stacks of ingots of silver, and pigs of lead. Entering, we found ourselves just in time to see a stream of boiling metal run from one caldron to another. It looked transparent, having a black clearness like alcohol, and as I stood looking down into it I could scarcely believe that it was lead. The works had only been in operation a fortnight, but the foreman was in great delight over the results obtained by a new 2This smelting works was probably the Germania, which had a smelting capa- city of forty tons a day. However, there were other smelters in the area to serve the mines of Little Cottonwood Canyon to the east of Sandy and the Bingham Canyon mines in the Oquirrah Range of mountains to the west of the valley. The Saturn Mining Company of England operated three blast furnaces, each with a twenty ton per day capacity. Mrs. Kane was not always correct in her geography. She may have misplaced the Germania, since it was actually about four miles north of Sandy Station, at present Murray.
