vale, Ore., Dec. 16. The present
winter started In to be another
scorcher, but at present It seems to
have changed Its mind. The snow Is
deeper throughout the mountains of
Malheur county at the present than
It ever became last winter. The cold
Is almost as severe. Yet the alarm
that was felt In the early part of De
cember has subsided everywhere,
save in the minds of a few of tho
rural distrlcters. who have not been
down to Vale to get the more recent
reflections of the old-timers.
Prospects Brighter. s
The prospect of getting a railroad
Into Vale Is attracting widespread
faith in tho Interior. Those who have
waited, lo these many years, for the
toot of the locomotive, may now be
rewarded for their faithfulness. That
the vast interior country is to be
brought 10 miles nearer to the outside
world is a thing devoutly to be deslr
ed by those who have braved tho
privation incidental to entering a rail
roadless sphere to kill tho snakes
and build bridges. The new railroad
has crept in upon the people unher
alded and silently. Just the outcome
to be expected is a mystery. That it
will extend far out Into the interior
from Vale is surmised by the know
ing ones, but that Vale is to be the
terminal for years to come Is contend
ed by others who have a record for
New Railroad Survey.
The surveyors continue their work
between Vale and Nyssa. The grade
stakes have been set on a portion of
the line and yet the engineers are
dumb to all Inquiries.
All they know is that they have
been instructed to run out the line
between the two towns. They ' don't
even appear to know who has sent
theni hero to do the work. Their huge
maps and reports sent off by U. S.
mall, are jealously guarded so that
now after several efforts at this in
quisitive Investigation, your reporter
has been unable to get a glimpse of
Vale is putting on airs under the
present outlook and threatens to soon
blossom out as a full-fledged railroad
town. The site for depot grounds has
been selected and the bridge stakes
mark the spot where the river is to
be crossed. The town has extended
a cordial invitation to every person
in Malheur county to visit Vale on
Christmas day and eat turkey dinner
in the bran-spankin' now courthouse.
This dinner Is to be perfectly free
and the enterprising Valeltes .assist
ed by admiring country people, have
hunt a magnificent stone courthouse
and It, too. Is free to the county, hav
ing been a present from Vale. This
is the most substantial present ever
received by the county and on Christ
mas day the formal dedication takes
place. The sister towns will Join In
the festivities by sending a lot of tho
nungry delegation therefrom. An
elaborate program has been prepared
and the real artistic talent or the
place is to be brought into recqulsi
tion in tho celebration of the Import
ant event in the history of the town.
