continued by General Manager E. HJ.
Calvin, have been so enlarged as to
Include change of line near Coyote,
where a cut-off will be built which
will reduce the mileage very ma
terially, take out curves, and enable
the management to make a great sav
ing tn time; this cut-off will extend
beyond Umatilla and to a point near
Another set of curves will be cut
out just this side of Hood River and
the only obstructing grade out of The
Dulles will be reduced. Ballasting of
the lines Is proceeding with vigor on
the division eust of La Grande, and
new rails will be put In the line where
they have not yet been laid. It Is Mr.
Calvin's Intention to make the main
line between Huntington and Port
land as solid as the main line of the
Most of the track now Is In as good
a condition as any Eastern trunk line.
As fast as the ballasting Is put In it
is lined up evenly so that It presents
the same handsome appearance as an

comes better time for freight and pas
