Col. J. B. Eddy, writing of the Christ
mas trip to Portland from - The Dalles,
says : , "The rotary wejat abead, , poshed
by a 0-ton bog. engine,, and ire followed,
palled by three engioes. -The track was
cleared wjtbout any difficulty as Tar as
'Cascade Locks, but between there and
Bonneville two engines bad got stack
the. day before ftndyoor,, rotary had v0
ahead, dig them put and,ppll them. iacW
to Cascade Locks again before we could
get through... v J nst as we are get ling an
der way odco more the tender of oar
plow jatuped the' track.' That accident
and the drifts on tbe way, to Multnomah
falls kept ne in BonoeTille all night.
There we' struck a drift, so . heavy that :
tlie pog engine cotild) not force the plow
into it. Our three engines were, called
into, use, and, with their assistance, the
sra.v was cleared to Bridal Veil ia two
hours. Tbe big drift was' struck at Lat
ourelle falls, where a deep , cut . was
drifted full of snow to tbe height, of an
engine smokestack, and for a distance of
about SCO yards. The snow, was packed
hard by rain and wind, and the rotary
plow, poshed by four engines, could
make bo headway against, it.
.'Filially, as night drew on, a number
of section men got up os top of the drift
and broke tbe crnet with shovels. Vtnd
with their help-, the plow, went slowly
forward. Every able-bodied man aboard
the j train who could wield a shovel
pitched in and worked with a will. All
wanted to get through by 8unday after
noon, if .possible.. The .women and
children gathered on top the. Jijg drift
to witness the grand, .sight at. tha re$ry
snowplow under, full -head of steam,
teariag tbe huge of jnow Jntsuiall
fragments. If yon can imagine 100
powerful streams of prater, similar to
those thrown jbyija Lfije engine, formed
into a semi-circle, then you have a faint
idea, of the dazplin,g sight ; caused," by ' a
rotary .snow plow; at , wofk, i fit - the
powerful pressure of four engines was
'too much for the :plow.-, The axle feroke,
and we were again forced Z sretorn to
Brjdal Veil. When our plow was re
paired we went ahead again and reached
Portland without farther accident."
- 1'8. AnnaX. JJaviaof Chicago, a mis
sionary of tbe, Woman's, Foreign Mission
Society of the , Methodist Episcopal
church, -who isen,.r4oi,rtO Janking,
China, was one of the passengers. "We
were snow bound , for 84 hoars," she
said, "and our experience was rather un
ple'asan'tl jWp arrived at" Tbe Dalles
Thursday mornipg and started sfop Port
land. ' We reached Hood 'Biver but
conld get no further and had to return
to The Dalles. , We staid there untilthe
next train, arrived, Then .the railroad
officials took tbe Pullman sleeper on our
train, saying that they bad to take them
back to Pendleton . . Tben the passengers
oi Dotn trains, sao in number, were
crowded, into - the.- sleepers and day
coaches of the second train. We ex
pected to arrive ua -Portland yesterday,
and would havedone fo if; tjhe otary
snowplow had not jumped tbe 'track RTid
.roke oa .Saturday. .About twenty-five
passenera walked from Bridal Veil to
Fairvjew to take tbe special train. We
spent Christmas pleasantly enough.
The passengers in' one of the cars ob
tained a tree, which they decorated. In
the evening Mrs. Besant delivered a lec
ture. The company did all in its power
to make the 'passengers comfortable.
.Wewere especially grateful to Conductor
Com an v who made a number of trips to
the city to obtain hot coffee for us. Tbe
passengers made up a purse of $50 and
presented it to him in recognition of his
services." . ' ' .' '' : " ;

question ireeiy aiacassea oy im
Cbboniclb has, it seems, been taken up
by Vice-President Hanrahan,' of the
Illinois Central railroad, who has made
a move that will meet with popular ap
proval. This consists in a circular sent
oat to the agents, officers and employes
of his" road, in which they are ordered
"to furnish to tbe press tbe facts in mat
ters in which the public has an inter
est." The prevalent practice among;,
railroad people is to refuse inrortnatioa.
concerning wrecks and disasters on their
lines, to the annovance of travelers arid "
tne grave' andneedles anxiety of their
friends. With all of their business acu
men, railroad managers have not"' yet
learned, that. the. truth .fullv .told con
cerning a disaster is. never so bad. as am,
account gathered from ...affrighted pas-,
seugers, .veiled in . mystery and over-i
aliadow.ed by , uncertainty.- We . hold.
tliat.the pubic has a right to pU ano

in Jbe. spirit of arrogance, based arxpm , a,
"oone-of-your-buBiness" idea, says tha
jOregonian , or with -ire view, -of keeping;
tjp the confidence; of. the public in b
roads, .thus,, .supervised, ' jt is as mis
cxeyjoas and futile. , It is equally , im
possible, ip this, country, fo muzz e thai
p,ce8 or baffle the inquiry, of its agents.
Railroad trains are no wrecked or, de
layed private! v, and news of such happen
ipgs,, together w,ith tbeir , cause, real or
sdj posed, and their details, accurate or
ipaccurate, according to the source that
facnibes .the information,, will certainly
reach the public ear. ..Since.thisis true,
U ia pjain that., the. corporations derirs;
no benefit from witholding inorm'ai'oit
upon uieaCfLuaucravauUptuureuver, to
in granting it promptly they will do D4
more than, a public duty contingent up.
on the service they andei lake to per
form in t'je transpo-tatiou business.-' It
may be hoped, therefore, that the policr
ot Vice-President Hanrahan, oi the It-,
lino is Central, as above noted, will le
