TREATS ECHO PRETTY FAIR
But Portage Road Around Celilo
Falls Increases Cost of Trans
The O. R. & N. is well aware
that the cost of transporting
freight is increased by the port
age road around the Celilo falls.
It treats Echo pretty fair, al
though the people would like a
local train or two more; and on
the square, Echo is so much bet
ter off than towns in the interior
of the state that we are the en
vied of scores of towns in Grant,
Harn?y, Malheur and other
counties. The people of the up
per John Day valley, in which
are situated the towns of Can
yon, John Day and Prairie City
have raised $30,000 to get the
little wobbly Sumpter Valley
narrow guage road, called "The
Mormon Road," to extend to
them from Baker City. They
would give $(50,000 to have a real
transcontinental rend such as
