Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION by brothers Issac E. (Ike) and Charles P. Diehl, and later published by James H. Hayford, closed its doors in 1897. The Iron County Record had much greater longevity, meeting its weekly schedule under the guidance of three generations of the Rollo family for some eight decades before the masthead was eliminated in 1982. The territory's population was 230,570 and that of the capital city, 53,531. Other larger communities, in order, were Ogden 16,313; Provo 6,185; Logan 5,451; Park City 3,759; Springville 3,422; Eureka 3,085 and Lehi 2,719. Since the December, 1893 gathering was rather informal, no actual minutes were taken. However the Salt Lake Tribune reported in its December 18th story that these 10 newsmen had joined Webb: William Glasmann and Edwin A.

Tomson of the Brighton Star; Don Johnson, Springville Independent, M. F. Murray, Ephraim Enterprise; Josiah Gibbs, Deseret Blade and Andy N. Rosenbaum of the Logan Nation. Most of them were able to travel to and from Lehi with relative ease since the north-central portion of Utah Territory was criss-crossed by a network of rail lines. Even from somewhat distant Logan, Rosenbaum had no difficulty making the journey by train. Because the Union Pacific's line didn't actually go through Lehi, but ran about a mile north and west of it, many travellers rode from Salt Lake City to Utah County communities on the Rio Grande instead. Ephraim, from where M. F. Murray journeyed, was served by a Rio Grande branch line which ran southward out of Thistle, passing through Mt. Pleasant, Manti, Salina and Richfield enroute to its terminus at Marysvale. It was abandoned after a 1983 mountain slide destroyed facilities at Thistle. Tracks were removed in 1987-88. At a glance, readers will note disparities in the reports of the Lehi Banner and the Salt Lake Tribune. One is the newspaper affiliation of Edwin Littlefield, who's identified with the Ogden Press in Mr. Webb's account and with the Ogden 14
