Mr. Sloan brings out the information that a crew of surveyors. In the ser vice of the Pittsburg A Gilmore line, better known as the Salmon river road, during the past month survey ed a bridge site across the Snake at Wild Goose island, and also took soundings of the same. Their work was continued down on the west side of Snake river until the mouth of the Grande Ronde was reached, when a Y was run up the Grande Ronde on the south side of that stream. This bit of news rather sets In motion a train of thought which would figure out that a line will be run down this way, also another line up the Grande Ronde. toward Walla Walla, apparent ly with the intention of connecting with the North Coast line, which is thought to be working in this direct ion with the purpose of connecting with the Salmon river road. This information is significant in itself, and it may mean considerable, and it may mean but little. Anyway, it will start anew tbe agitation of rail road construction.
