9-7 AND 9-21 1890 SALT LAKE HERALD - Joseph Payne will wield the Tonsorial clippers over the heads of our citizens in the future. He has rented Barnes and Swan's new building and opened it as a barber shop.
------ About 8 o' clock last evening George Layton's house was discovered to be on fire. Neighbors quickly gathered and succeeded in saving the furniture, carpets etc. but the frame building burned readily and was soon destroyed. Loss about $1,000.
------ Discussion of the proposed change of Postmaster has been one topic of conversation during the week. Public indignation was aroused when it was learned that a certain Liberal and anti - Mormon clique had been secretly conspiring to secure the removal of our present Postmaster Mr. Stewart. Their view is to have a Mr. William Clow appointed as his successor. This gentleman is almost an entire stranger here having been a resident only 2 months. The community considers it an insult for a stranger, who's only qualifications seem to he is a Liberal to come in and take such a responsible position while at the same time others are better qualified. It has been stated Mr. Clow will take charge of his position Oct. 1
------ William Allen our architect and builder can without a doubt take prize for rapid bricklaying from anyone in the territory. On a trial recently he succeeded in laying 612 bricks in an hour.
