The Big Busy Store
Imnh Pt in WateyNew
Lewiston Tribune. Unless one,
pected delay occurs in tbe construc
tion work on the craft, the pretty
new steamer, Imnaha, will be launch
ed on Kew Year's day, and it is plan
ned that appropriate ceremonies shall
beheld in honor of an event which
meant tbe opening to trade and com
mercial activities of an extensive and
rich section of tbe state which has to
long remained isolated. Captain
Harry Bailsman and Builder Easton
are each anxious that the new boat
will be in shape for launching on the
first day of the new year and tbe con
struction operations are being push-
ea as rapidly as possible. The work
on the deck will be commenced this
week and only severe winter weather
could now prevent the completion of
of the craft on tbe date desired. As
surance is now given by the manu
facturers th.st no delay will been-
encoutercd in the shipment of the
machinery from the east and it can
be installed promptly upon its ar
rival here There now therefore
seems but little doubt that the boat
will 1 ready for the initial run un
the Snake by the middle of Jauuary.
Illustrations are already available
as to the result that will follow the
establishment of the upper river boat
service. Parties arriving from the
copper camps report that more men
are now at work along the river than
during any winter season in the past,
while a large number of people are on
the ground planning to inaugujate
work on claims that have been idle
for years. In many instances aban
doned claims are being relocated and
several deals it is understood mav
soon be announced. At all points
where assessment or transient work
is . being done the ore is new beinr
stored, preliminary to sacking lor
shipment. Tbe knowledge that a
transportation service is soon to Le
established has revived tbe confidence
of owners of property and steps are
being taken for extensive work in all
the districts extending from Wild
Goose to Pittsburg Landiig.
The plans of the new boat company
as regards the regular landings to be
established between Lewiston and
Iiuunha have not yet been announced
but it is known that the officers have
made a careful study as to the best
points of entrance to the river from
tbe farming, fruit and stock sections
of tbe highlands extending back from
the river. It is known, however, that
a landing will be established st
Grande Ronde, it beiug the object to
serve all the country lying contiguous
to that stream for a considerable dis
tance back from the Snake river, It
has also been explained that the boat
will be a great convenience to the
people of Asotin countr in the quick
and convenient delivery of freights
from Lewiston, thus eliminating the
necessity of freighting and a special
service between Asotin and this point
will probably be maintained indepen
