Old Line Abandoned In 1894 Will Be
Immediately Rebuilt and Put In

Pieces of Railroad Built in Wash
ington Terr.iory In 1880-1, But Was
Abandoned Because of Unsettled
What Is known as the "Connoll
branch" of tho O. R. & N. is to be re
built ln tho 'Immediate future. Word
comes from that vicinity that the pre
Iminaries are ln progrcs now and It
Is believed, from - the Indications of
activity along the lino, that the re
building is to be completed during the
latter part of the present summer.
What Is known as a certainty Is that
th.o .road Is nctully to be rebuilt and
left at the dimensions It had prior to
being abandoned ln 1894.
Tho "Connell branch" comprises a
portion of the very first railroad built
ln the present limits of the state (then
territory) of Washington. Tho orig
inal lino was built in 1880-1, and .ex
tended from Moscow, Idaho, westward
and southwestward to Connell. The
Spokane branch of the O. R. & N.,
when It was built, crossed the Mos-cow-Connell
line at LaCrosse.
That portion of the "Connoll
branch" between LaCrosse and Wash
tucna, a distance of 25 miles, was
never abandoned. From Washtucna
to Kahlotus, a distance of 15 miles,
was abandoned in 1894, but was re
built and put In operation three years
ago. At this time that portion of the
line between Connell and Kahlotus ro
mains dismantled, and Is that portion
that will bo Immediately rebuilt and
put ln commission. From Kahlotus
to Connell Is 1C miles. The total dls
lance from LaCrosse to Connell Is,
therefore, CG miles.
That region has developed until tho
rebuilding of this line has become lm
peratlvoly necessary. Tho old routo
will be followed closely, and It Is sup
