M. D. Wright Sec ur es Contract to He
Filled Within Eight Months.
M. D. Wright, of thin city, has se
cured tho contract for IM.lIl ties
for tho Northern Pacific railroad, to
ho delivered within the next eight
months, the largest tie contract that
has even been awarded by any sin
gle corporation in this vicinity, ac
cording to a statement made by Mr.
Wright, and he says he can fulfill the
contract within the time limit.
The large mill he has la coarse of
construction at Hayden Lake H
nearly completed and will be in ful'
operation by October lHe will tben
atop sawing logs at Hayden Lake and
the mill will then be used for (he
purpose of cutting ties. The two
mills combined will cut about 5,000
The securing of this contract will
be a great boom to the city, aa it will
mean the employment of 500 men
with steady work for the next eight
months, making a pay roll of nearly
$30,000. to say nothing of the large
sums which will be paid out tor sup
plies. Not only Is the tie industry s
great thing for the city In the way of
keeping a large number of men etn
ployed daring the winter, when the
two sawmills will close down for
their annual repairs, but It will also
be s boon to the farmers by supply
ing them with a good market for
their hay and grain. Some Idea of
what this amounts to can be gathered
from the fact that Mr. Wright has
jnst purchased 200 loos of hay from
one of the local farmers, and It was
delivered yesterday and stored in the
Wright skating rink. Mr. Wrlgh'
also closed s contract for the sale of
10.000 cords of tie slab wood, the
latter being sold to tbe Washington

Union officials will not discuss
whether the railroad officials wll
consider the demand for a higher
scale, but that there ia evidence sup
pressed Is Indicated by tbe excite
ment in the shops- The demand will
undoubtedly be made, and it is be
lieved that the railway company will
meet tbe strikers half way. As yet
there has not beeo very much said
on either side, but It U believed tbst
there will be some developments
within tbe next 24 hours.
Tbe railroad official* believe that
the men are asking too much and
ray that tbe difficulty will have to be
sealed without a raise la scale.' but
believe that this can be done, while
tbe employes ray that if the demand
is made it mast be considered and
accepted. It is hoped that aa agree
ment may be arrived at before the
men are called out.
