      "On the Central Pacific the only contract taken by Mormons was that of Benson, Farr and West, who grappled with the great undertaking of building the western road from the vicinity of Humboldst Wells to Ogden. The contractors were Apostle Ezra T. Benson, of Logan, Cache County, President Lorin Farr and Bishop Chauncey W. West, of Ogden. Originally the contract was taken by President Farr alone, but on the advice of President Young he associated himself with the two others. Under this firm were the following named sub-contractors: Andrew Anderson, R. Ballantyne, Burrop and Company, Thomas Bingham, H. Bullen, William Budge, E. T. Benson, John E. Bitton, B. Cozier and Company, Eugene Campbell, Collett and Bankhead, Collett and Company, M.C. Carter, Dispennet Aldrich and Company, Jospeh Edge, I.H. Freeman, John Farrill, Fitzgerald and Aldrich, A.F.
