Half Dozen Roads Plan for Rig Hole
Transcontinental railroads are in-1
vestigating the feasibility of pierc-1
ing the Cascade Mountains with aj
32-mile tunnel, so as to be able to |
reach Puget Sound on a sea-level
grade. Some years ago, Gen. H. M. j
Chittenden, U. S. A. Engineer Corps,!
proposed this project as the solution !
for eliminating the expensive haul
over the mountains. At the time it
was considered an improbable
dream, because of the estimated
cost, which is $75,000,000. Now,!
however, engineers have been look
ing into the proposal. Because of its
largeness, halt a dozen railroads are '
planning tc co-operate in the work,
making the tunnel the combined i
highway from the Inland Empire to j
the Coast. The east end of the bore }
would be in the vicinity of Leaven
worth, and it would come out near j
Skykomish on the west side.
MERRY MAKERS HERE.
Popular Company Makes Hit at New
When McKenzies Merry Makers
were here last year and gave us a;
week's entertainment, they left the
town with the reputation of being
one of the best repertoire companies
that had visited Coif ax in a decade.
They are back here again for the rest
of the week, at the Ridgeway, and so
far have carried out the favorable
reputation they secured last year.
Last night they presented "The Pow
ers That Be," from the pen of Broad
burst, and to say they "made good"
is putting it mild. Many times have
we paid a dollar and a dollar and a
half for not near as good a show.
Thursday night they presented "A
Woman's Battle." Tonight, "Hearts
of the Blue Ridge." Saturday after
noon, -Peck's Bad Boy." Saturday
