Construction by the Harriman
interests of a railroad from Vale
across the state east and west is
now almost an' assured fact.
Prominent officials of the system
while on a recent trip through
Oregon looked carefully into the
matter, and have decided that it
is a feasible proposition, and
would be a big saving in mileage
and expense to construct such a
There are several places where
the line from the east could con
nect with Harriman roads run
ning south from the Columbia
river. One of the connections
that has been given prominence
by the officials is to have the line
connect at Redmond with the
It is claimed that with this
connection the road would have
practically a down hill haul from
this city to Portland, and a long
distance could be saved. Not
only would this proposed line of
road eliminate much difficult
trackage, but it would pierce a
productive portion of the state
that at present is without railroad
facilities. That the road would
be a paying proposition from the
start is a conclusion that has
been drawn from all calculations
that have been made on the sub
It is estimated that the pro
posed new line via Redmond
would reduce the distance from
Portland and the east nearly 100
miles. The curvature between
Umatila and Huntington would be
avoid d and many of the grades
on that portion of the present
line would be overcome.
The construction of this line
would leave several important
cities in Eastern Oregon, includ
ing Baker City. La Grande and
Pendleton off the main road, but
it is pointed out that the business
of that portion of the state is de
veloping so rapidly anyway
that a train service equally as
frequent as that now provided
for through traffic will be requir
ed to handle the local freight and
The Spokesman has always
held that Redmond was the logi

and west road, and the prediction
may be verrified before long.
