From teamsters, stage drivers, wagon masters, captains and sundry other gentlemen, we hear constant complaints of the condition of the highway over the Wahsatch [Wasatch] Summit through Parley's kanyon [canyon] to Parley's Park. For a distance of over 20 miles there is a continual apprehension of an overturn, and though a great many bones have not very recently been broken, we hear now and again of some rather unpleasant feats of ground and lofty tumbling, hair-breath 'scapes, and no end to the string of apprehension of that kind of exercise. We shall look to the next Legislature for some attention in that direction. We are rich enough now to give some reliable man or men the job to make a good highway over the Summit—the interest of the community and the traveling public demand it.
