man shooting another in the leg, thn
trouble arising over a gambling dis

vvll known contractor was presented
with a handsome gold-headed cane as a
token of esteem by his men. Mr.
Cook has taken a great interest in the
workmen under hitn and the cane was
a slight testimonial of their apprecia

technic display not on the bills, was

giant powder. Some of the men were
too liberally supplied with fusil oil by

was blown up to insure total absti

made. Tho strikes and annoyances
whiea have been delaying tho work at
times heretofore are now past, and
from this time on rapid progress may
be expected in the extension of the
track. The Grave creek tunnel is
completed (MrMorris and party drove
through it in their conch on the way
hither) and the long tunnel nt Cow
creek will be Utiish.nl, it is believed, by
the 20th of August. The grading be
tween these two points will bo com
pleted before that time, and the road
led will be all ready for the laying of
the track. In fact, the graders will
1 o able to keep thefack layers steadily
nt work from '.hat time until the heavy
cutting in the Siskiyc u division iseti
countered. The compmy have en
hand nil tho iron lequiicd, and Mr.
Morris thinks thu tiack will reach
Ashland some time in December. A
thousand men arc already nt work this
side the Ornvi; creek tunnel, a"d the
other graders will be moved south
waul as soon an their work between
tho two long tunnels is ended. The
crossing of Rogue river will be an ex
pensive piece of work, and will require
a large amount of timber.
