Mr. Quinn finds a great change

since his visit just before the re

This carves a long slim island out
of the agricultural land of tho" valley
and will necessitate another bridge

it is nearly all tunnel are com

ever of some 1500 feet lacks about
200 feet of the finish, and this

a remarkably good showing, es
pecially considering the adverse
weather conditions. A godd deal
of rock lias been encountered,
some of it hard. Fortunately,
they have' had. to contend with
very little shelving or caving-in,
which is much more troublesome
than linrd rock; and very little
of it will have to be lined.
