O. U. N. Runs a "Short" Train
From Umatilla to North Fork.
In order to handle the heavy traf
fic now almost blockading the O. R.
& N. system, a "short" freight run
has been put on between Umatilla and
North Fork. A freight crew takes a
full train out of Umatilla and leaves
part of It at Bingham Springs and
part at North Fork, returns to Uma
tilla and repeats the operation.
The next regular train that comes
along picks up the cars set out at
Bingham Springs, where a helper Is
met, and the following regular train
picks up the loads at North Fork, In
this way, the full tonnage of the reg
ular trains is supplied and the yards
at Umatilla and Pendleton are reliev
ed of the congestion.
It is the heaviest traffic In the his
tory of the O. R. N. system. Many
sidetracks are filled to overflowing,
and the same short run Is now being
operated between Huntington and
Baker City. There are now 1100
tons of wheat billed for the east,
awaiting shipment at Thorn Hollow
and a similar rush Is seen every

Cargo May Be Kent From Portland
to New York.
Rumor has it that the American
ship Shenandoah has been chartered
to carry a cargo of flour and wheat
from Portland to New York. All the
shippers have heard the report, but
while professing to know nothing of
a definite nature, appear to believe
that It is true, says the Oregon Daily
The Shenandoah Is lying at San
Francisco and could be got here In
short order. She Is of more than 3000
tons net register and has an actual
carrying capacity of more than 6000
tons. If she has been engaged for
the business named It Is for the pur
pose of assisting the railroad com
panlea In getting the heavy flour and
wheat shipments east.
There has been talk for several
months of dispatching cargoes around
the horn, but the difficulty standini
in the way of the venture, It was
cited, was the lack of American ton
nage on the Pacific coast.
While suitable American tonnage
is said to be scarce In these waters,
there are a number of vessels of the
description desired at San Francisco,
and it Is generally believed that
movement is on foot to place them in
the flour and grain trade between the
Pacific coast ports and the Atlantic
It la declared that such a course Is
the only solution of the problem to
deliver the orders that have aireaoy
been placed for Pacific coast wheat
and flour. The statement is made
that the railroad companies are una
ble to handle all the traffic, and being
convinced of this fact many of the
local flour dealers have not attempt
ed to make any further sales to east
