When il. eomoi to attempting to overthrow the expressed will of the pe'iple by devious, underhanded meth od.) the conspira'ors need not count on Representative Uusk or Senator Oliver of this district. Both are square-toed for carrying out their pledges. Air. Uusk says he believes the direct primary law, Including statement No. 1, should be obeyed as any other law until it Is repealed by the sovereign power of the people who enacted It. Tho News Record acknowledges It likes Taft a whole lot better as president-elect than a a candidate. On tho issues he was wobbly before before election, he Is . now square out in defining his position. The world loves a fighter and if he forces tho Cannonltos to accept re vision of the House rules In the Interest of reform legislation, even if he does not succeed in defeating Cannon for Speaker, II r.

Why Build Snake River Railroad IMPORTANCE OF HUNTINGTON LEWISTON LINE TOLD IN OF FICIAL PUBLICATION. In an official publication by the Union Pacific relative to the plans of -he company dealing with new lines, lays the Lewlston Tribune, conslder ible attention is devoted to the Hunt-ington-Iewiston line now under con struction and Its objects. From this publication the following data Is se cured, showing the general plan of .he Harriman system to reduce Its grades by adopting water grade routes, etc.: "From Salt Lake City the Oregon Short Lin a runs north to Pocatello, Idaho. Here it connects with a cut sff from Green River, Wyoming. That part of this road btw33u Granger md Pocatello ha ha l developed to he highest possible standard of rail oad perf jciion. Its maximum grade s one pir cent. At llemroerer, which i great coal-producing section, It i possible to take a train of 3,000 ons and haul It to Pocatello, 200 niles away, with but one locomotive, rom Ogden to Pocatello the line has a maximum grade of 37 feet to the mile. From Pocatello the line crosses the state of Idaho to Hunting ton. Oregon, with a maximum grade ot one P3r cent. Every foot of this line has been thoroughly ballasted. Kighty-pound rails have been ln stiilled from Salt Lake City to Poca tello and continued on the branch Una to Dutte, Montana, Ninety pound rails have bejn Installed from Granger to Pocatello, whereas, when Mr. Harriman took hold of this line, th3 rails weighed from 52 to 60 pounds. From Pocatello to Huntlng '.oii the rails now used weigh from 70 to 80 pounds. The3e are now be ins renewed frequently and the corn puny Is now pursuing the policy of uuing tie plates on every new tie In italled. Automatic signals have been lnntalled from Granger to Pocatello. Similar signals are also In place from Huntington to Nampa. Double tracking Is In progress between Green river and Granger, some 30 miles. "At the present time the Oregon Short Line is constructing a new branch from Huntington, Oregon, down the valley of the Snake river, designed eventually to extend to Lew lston, connecting there with the Ore jon Railroad & Navigation company and probably become a through trans continental line. This would give the company a water grade all the way from Salt Lake City to Portland. Fifty-nine miles of this line have been authorized, and twenty-five miles have been graded. This con struction Is made necessary by the fact that the prefent grade from Huntlniton, going west across the Blue mountains. Is sometimes as much as 106 feet to the mile, thus rendering conditions of transporta tion extremely expensive. "The O. R. & N. Is now making an The Racket Store (Under New Management) We keep always on hand a rev and fresh supply of Con fectionery, Tobacco, Fruits, Novelties, Etc.

After completion this line will tap an exceptionally rich agricul tural section. To the north Is the great Palouse country of Washing ton, wonderfully productive In wheat. "The line of the O'. R. & N. be tween Huntington and Portland pre sents some of the most difficult oper ating problems on the Harriman sys tem. From The Da'.l33 to Portland, a dis tance of 88 milej, the old line was full of curves. The company has, however, been removing both curva ture and heavy grades, as well as Improving the track, A total of about $1,500,000 ha3 now bean spent In this direction. About 227 miles of the finest . ballast ha3 been placed on this route from Huntington to Portland. From The Dalle3 to Port land the longest stretch of straight track, at the present time, amounts to two miles. In one Improvement, however, now under way between Troutdale and Bonneville, a distance of 17.48 miles, the reduction in curv ature will amount to 1454 degrees, 51 minutes. The amount of bridging Is also being largely reduced. Five years ago there were seven and one half miles of bridges between Port land and The Dalle3. This has now been reduced to about half a mile. All the bridges which remain are of the finest steel construction. The entire line from Huntington to Port land has been equipped with auto matic block signals." Weiser a Division. Relative to the construction of the Lewiston-Huntlngton line, the Weiser Signal says: "It Is reported on good authority that early in the spring the Oregon Short Line will make Weiser a divis ion point, removing the repair shops and round house from Huntington, Oregon, to this city. This action is made necessary on the part of the railroad company on account of the opening of the new Snake river di vision, running from Huntington, on the Oregon side of the Snake, which will be completed and' in operation within a short time as far as Home stead, Oregon, where is located the celebrated Iron Dyke mine. This will give the big copper and gold mine3 on both sides of the river a tremen dous advantage in shipping their ore3 to the smelters. The road will be at once pushed on through th'e Box canyon to Lewltson, Ida., which will, of course, be the next division point on the O. R. & N. "The opening of this line through to Lewlston means much to the peo ple of southern Idaho. In the first place It will shorten the distance from Boise to all points In north- arn Idaho, and will make the rail road fare less than half what It is at present. Passengers now have to go via Pendleton and Riparia, chang ing cars twice en route. The man agers of the Harriman system of railroads In the northwest state that it is their Intention to give the people of Idaho and Oregon the very best possible service at the least possible cost."
