Just at the present time while there
are so many surveying crews in this
section and the Hill and Harriman
line are fighting each other and calling
one anothers bluffs it is pretty hard to
give much credence to any railroad
rumor and the ink is hardly dry on

story is started.

There the survey joins that of the

junction of the two roads, according to
the present plans.
From Weiser it is suggested a Hill
road may be built westward extending
to the Coast and opening up a vast
area of undeveloped territory. Such ac

candidates. In the second district the
voting has been heavy and the candi

reached the forty thousand mark.
In the third district the Salmon
river section, Mrs. Freeman still leads
but her majority lias been cut down
from six thousand to four and the light

The fourth or Grangeville district
shows very little difference in the
standing of the candidates. There is
plenty of room for workers in Grange

of back subscription can he collected.
The interest in a contest has never
been greater and every day we are in

There is every indication that many
of the contestants are holding hack a
great deal of back money received 011
