Ambassador Tukalilni and his wife have Riven some of the most elaborate dinners and receptions held In Washington this sensou. w through ths mountains having baan previously surveyed," says the Walla Union, "This move would benefit the several ral roads of thts section of the country, and it is the opinion of all who have studied the queitlon that this wl 1 be the proposed route." Thli proposed loute Is up Mill creek, acio:s the Blue Mountains at an altitude of les than 3000 feat, down the Wenuha to Troy, and down the Grande Ronde river to the Snake, up the latter to Eureka, and thence a:ross Idaho by the val ley of the Salmon river. This would give the Chicago & Northwestern not only the shortest but the eas lest grade route that any railroad has from the Rocky Mountains to the Pacific Ocean, The Union tells of the letting ol the first contracts on the Nortl Coast extension to Walla Walla, tc J. J. Mangan, who has charge o seven miles of perfectly stralgh track fiom At'a la, "and," the Unlo goes qu to say, 'it is now though that beyond a diubt this road ha as Its object enhance into this va' ley. As the'r survey crosses the Va lumbia river in two places, when on is only naceasary if the road did not intend to enter tl.is valley, the fad can be deduced that this city wil soon be favored with another railroad One of the proposed bridges of this company crose the Snake river it the vlt'lnlty of Lyon's Ferry and a the height of the structure will bt 276 feet, a heavy grale is eliminated and double enslne service, such as is use! on the Alti bill o il of Starhuck on the O.

Ah;n a wan decides to sail his farm ir home, or any of his real estate ho dings It is generally the caia that the sooner such sale can hi consummated the better. If this is t'le situation it re solves IUelf into a very slmp0 buslne-is prouosi..lm, viz.: How can I je- a deil on this in the shortest tl.i.e? Now thj selling of land l not everybody's buiiness, so It U i a ural ti go to someone wht makes this hli particular business. Then the question arises: Where shall I go? Now that is wheia we come in. We believe that we can make tha assertion with out contradiction that we are better situated to bring about a quick sa'o than any one else In the valley. We know this County from one end to the other; In fact If there is any piece of deeded land that we do not know we v,o il:l pay something to be shown." We are in touch with a consideiable number of prospective buyers whom we are sim ply holc'ing off till conditions are such that the country can be se ui to the beit advantage, therefore doesn't It naturally follow that we should be In a position to do buslnes.4 for you If anyone tan? We think bo, and If you aro inclined to doubt this, give us a trl.l. Give us an option on your land and if we don't make goad there'll be a goad and sufficient reason for our fail ure. Our orflre is next door to the Post Ofilce. Crop In and pay us a visit when in town whether we do business for you or not. You'ra always welcome whether you find us at home or some where else. Yours very expectantly, O. R. & I. Company JORDAN a PACE Th people who do the Real Estate business.
