During the past year there were no
charges made for transportation of
fuel and other supplies used in oper
ating tho road, and the amount
charged for carrying constructiug
material was only tho cost price of
The report states that the princi
pal cause of the decrease iu passen
ger earnings was tho subsidence of
the Coeur d'Alene excitement, to
which must bo added the opening of
the Union Pacific road to Oregon by
tho Oregon Short Line and tho Ore
gon .Railway & Navigation Line, as
well as the snow which blockaded
tie route last winter, and the general
depression of business throughout
the country, These causes of de
creaso were offset as to freight by tho
steady advance of population and
development contiguous to tho Unas
of the road.
As compared with the preceding
year tho earnings decreased Sl,369,
000 and operating expenses $9G9,000.
Tho balance sheet shows no change

090 has been sold. There isno change
in the bonded debt of the Pond
d'Oreille division, while there is a
lecrease of $27,000 in the Missouri
division. The total funded debt is
now$GG7,345, not including dividend
certificates of $1,011,000.
The company paid to tho Northern
Pacific terminal company during the
year $SJ,000 for rent and $27,000 for
cost of maintenance.
Respecting the completion of the
Cascade branch, about which thero is
a decided difference of opinion among
parties interested in tho road,
reports state that 27 miles are
now tinder construction on tuc
west sido of the Cascade mountains
and 40 miles on the cast Bide, the
cost of which will be $1,&10,000. To
complete the Cascades brauch there
will remain 75J miles, not including
the Go miles under way. Tho es
timated cost of the 75 miles is as
follews: lo1.' miles over mountain,
including tunnels nearly two miles
long, $2,441,000; approaches on each
side, $1,431,000; making a total of
$3,872,000, to which is added for
snow sheds, it needed, $200,000, mak
ing tho grand total a little over S4,-
000,000. The total estimated cost of
the 40 miles required to complete the
gap is $5,912,000, and the amount of

animal, weighing when a yc'ir old
840 pounds. Mr. West is engaged in
raising horses and beef stock, as well
as dairying, having now on hand
about 200 head of cattle, besides 25
head of horses. Duriug.Tuly the aver
age make of cheese, "Clatsop Factory
cream cheese" braud, amounted to 200
pounds daily. This make of cheese is
of excellent quality, and always brings
a good price and ready sales. Two
sizes of cheese are made; one size 30
pounds, and another 7 to S ponuds,
the latter convenient for family use.
Tho cheese making is done personally
by Loyd West, who seems to thor
oughly understand his business. Mr.
West owns a fine bay stallion. Ham

ing charge of it The Ward brothers
are engaged in cheese making, the
average for May and June being 150
pounds per day. This is not all the
product of this farm, it being run in
connection with tho Ward dairy farm
whero the cheese factory is located.
Tho AVard brothers make a very fine
cheeso of good keeping qualities, en
suring tho highest price the market
affords. Mr. C. AVard formerly lived
in California, where he had a long
experience as a cheese maker. The
factory turns out at present about
100 pounds of cheese per day.
A mile or more further down the
plains from Mr. AA'est's place, is lo
cated the cheeso factory belonging to
C. Butterfield. Mr. Bntterfield has
been engaged in cheeso making at
this place for several years. While
the quantity made is not very large,
the quality is good, and is found iu
the market uuder the brand of "But
terfield's Clatsop County Factory
Cheese." In making the cheese Mr.
B. does nearly all tho work, exercis
ing a personal care and supervision
of the operations.
