Fourteen hundred and twenty-two pounds of mail matter went out of Pendleton on the east-bound O. R. & N. Wednesday morning. This includ ed the mail which was brought in Tuesday night on the west-bound train that was bound fo.r the Spoknne branch, but owing to the lateness of the train and. the fact that it would not connect with the through train at Umatilla, It was transferred here and went out on the morning train. Beginning with the first of March and lasting for 35 days, all mall that goes over the transportation lines will be weighed. This work is being done by the railroad clerks this year, but heretofore It was done by a regu lar government weigher, who went along with every mail train and kept an accurate record of all the mail passing over each line. In addition to this every sack of mail that is picked up at the stations along the lines is weighed by a man at the sta tlon, and so is every sack that is drop' ped. This is done every four years, and is for the purpose of establishing an average preliminary to letting con tracts to the transportation compa nies for carrying the mail for the en suing four years. The weighing is to furnish an idea of the number of pounds that goes over the roads as a basis to figure on what the govern ment is to pay. The same process of weighing is go" ing on with the mail hauled over the W. & C. R. out of Pendleton with the exception that the weighing is being done at the local postoflice instead of on the train. COUNTY COURT. How's This?
