accompanied by E. Dickinson, assistant
general manager, Director Fred L. Ames
of Boston, Col. George Leighton of St.

superintendent of machinery. President
Clark said : "We are simply on a tour of
inspection, and the trip has no special
significance. f We found everything in
splendid condition along the line.' Busi
ness is very fair all over the system and
Eastern stockholders are well satisfied."
The train consisted of Mr. Dickinson's
car, Mr. Metzhemer's car and T.ie direc

and began the laborious task of inspect

A press of business kept this scribe from
Canyon City News. Last week when
I dispatched a communication to the
News from McEwan I had in mind a
pleasant vacation, and up to the present
moment the most extravagant anticipa
tion in the recreation line has been
realized. I traveled from McEwan to
Baker city on the 'Sumpter Valley Rail
way, the guest of Mr. West the superin
tendent. By the way, that little rail
road beats a buck board line, and' the
people of Grant connty should give the
company every encouragement in their
power to build the road into our beloved
county. . Tommy McEwan would gladly
surrender his. excellent stage line and
give right of way to the little iron horse,
who gets there sometime, always. -,If he
is smail'd mean the iron Horse) 'he has
a.whistle 'equal to' a U. S. man of war
and snorts aa loud as any Union Pacific
90-ton locomotive. . Mr. West is anxious
to lay. before, the stockholders of , his
company a proposition to build the line
further into the interior, and will do
this if the people show a ' disposition to
encourage it. The Dalles people gave
the editors an opportunity to inspect the
government improvements at the Cas
cade locks, and a couple of cars were
furnished U9 by the Union Pacific I paid
for by The Dalles peopleVwhile the Reg

pleasant one," and upon, 'departing we
carried away - many pleasant recollec
tions, and left behind us footprints in
