Holly Sloan and John Gebbart, con
nected with the AA1 Mining. Company
of the upper Snake river country,
spent two or three days in Asotin
this week, says the Sentinel. Mr.
Sloan brings out the Information
that a crew of surveyors, in the ser
vice of the Pittsburg & Gilmore line,
better known as the Salmon river
road, during the past month survey
ed a bridge site across the Snake
at Wild Goqse Island, and al3Q took
soundings of the same. Their work
was continued down on the west side
of Snake river until the mouth of the
Grand? 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, tqward Walla Walla, apparent
ly with the intentiqn of connecting
with the North Coast line, which Is
thought to be working in this, dlrwt.
Ion with, the purpose of connecting
with the Salmon river road. This
information is significant In Itself,
and It may mqan considerable, and.
It may mean but little. Anyway, it
will start anew the agitation of rail
road construction, U has, been knowi
somq time, at east ever since the
Pittsburg & Glmore line has been
associated wjth the. Nqrth Coast line,
that It would have to cross the Snake
some where, but this is the first In
formation given qut of a, survey qf
the river being made, and the first
Information that would Indicate that
a line might be run down the Snake
toi Asotin and Clarkston.
