The following deicrlptlon of the surveying of the Sna'r.e river rail road line, from the Lewiaton Tribune, ue first that has bean published, ivlll be of lnte en to many people la this coanty: "Charles Kress, Jr., who was with one of the englnesring crews that made the survey for the Huntington road down the Snake river, yesterday save a Tribune reporter Interesting information relative to the line. Kress worked with Engineer Stacy's crew on that section of the line extend ing from Homeitead to Pittsburg landing, through what U known as 'he Walled canyon section of river, ulomestead lj the point of location of ithe mines to which the present sec tion of the road la being built and which section Is rapidly nearlng com p'etlon. "The preliminary survey . and loca tion survey for tha entire road from luntlngton to thla point were mado '.t the same time. The suction to Ilomei'ead was handled Ly Engineer iOrrls, that from Homestead to Pitts burg landing by Engineer Stacy and aside from a small section this side of PHtOjurg the remainder of the work was handled by Engineer Me Donough. As Mr. Kress did not work with the McDonough crew, he has no direct Information on the matter but he understood the location survey was complete4 by McDonough to Asotin or Clarkston, He states that all the work do.io was of the most -horough character and that the line is now reidy far crass-section work i.oag the entire distance so soon a the company might decide to place construction forces on the section aalow Homeatead. "The survey for the line was made during the season of 1906 andl907, four parties. being In the field far fifteen months. The work along tha canyons was very hazardous and the crew with which Mr. Kreaa was en gage! lost one man. At points it was necessary to lower men over the cliffs, with ropes to make It posalble Ito do the instrument work necessary. The road U la-'ated about fifteen feit above extreme hlsh wt-ter mark. Between Homestead and Pittsburg landing the drop la the river Is ojly about fourtesn feet to the mile, and tan ideal grade ha I been secured for ithe road the entire distance. Between those two points there are six tun nels, ranging in length from COO to 3.00Q feet. Practically all the dis lante the road wut have to bo blasted out of sulld rock, and the engineo-s estimate that some of the work would cast $100,01)0 a mile, while the average for the entire line would equal at least $50,000. Mr. Kress states that hU Information Is that the length of the line from Hunting ton to this point Is about 200 milua, bo the cost woild be approximately $11,000,000. "Mr. Krass statjd.that It was the view of all the engineers that tha Hamestead section would never have been starte! except for the fact that the decision had been reached to build tiaa entire line, and the char acter of the work done, in rushing the location survey, later sustained this vie.
