Tells Of Survey
Down Snake River
Member of Crew Cescribes Route
o! Railway Extension from
The following deicrlptlon of the
surveying of the Sna'r.e river rail
road line, from the Lewiaton Tribune,
ue first that has bean published,
ivlll be of lnte en to many people
la this coanty:
"Charles Kress, Jr., who was with
one of the englnesring crews that
made the survey for the Huntington
road down the Snake river, yesterday
save a Tribune reporter Interesting
information relative to the line. Kress
worked with Engineer Stacy's crew
on that section of the line extend
ing from Homeitead to Pittsburg
landing, through what U known as
'he Walled canyon section of river,
ulomestead lj the point of location of
ithe mines to which the present sec
tion of the road la being built and
which section Is rapidly nearlng com
p'etlon. "The preliminary survey . and loca
tion survey for tha entire road from
luntlngton to thla point were mado
'.t the same time. The suction to
Ilomei'ead was handled Ly Engineer
iOrrls, that from Homestead to Pitts
burg landing by Engineer Stacy and
aside from a small section this side
of PHtOjurg the remainder of the
work was handled by Engineer Me
Donough. As Mr. Kress did not work
with the McDonough crew, he has
no direct Information on the matter
but he understood the location survey
was complete4 by McDonough to
Asotin or Clarkston, He states that
all the work do.io was of the most
-horough character and that the line
is now reidy far crass-section work
i.oag the entire distance so soon a
the company might decide to place
construction forces on the section
"The survey for the line was made
during the season of 1906 andl907,
four parties. being In the field far
fifteen months. The work along tha
canyons was very hazardous and the
crew with which Mr. Kreaa was en
gage! lost one man. At points it
was necessary to lower men over the
cliffs, with ropes to make It posalble
Ito do the instrument work necessary.
The road U la-'ated about fifteen feit
above extreme hlsh wt-ter mark.
Between Homestead and Pittsburg
landing the drop la the river Is ojly
about fourtesn feet to the mile, and
tan ideal grade ha I been secured for
ithe road the entire distance. Between
those two points there are six tun
nels, ranging in length from COO to
3.00Q feet. Practically all the dis
lante the road wut have to bo blasted
out of sulld rock, and the engineo-s
estimate that some of the work
would cast $100,01)0 a mile, while the
average for the entire line would
equal at least $50,000. Mr. Kress
states that hU Information Is that
the length of the line from Hunting
ton to this point Is about 200 milua,
bo the cost woild be approximately
"Mr. Krass statjd.that It was the
view of all the engineers that tha
Hamestead section would never have
been starte! except for the fact that
the decision had been reached to
build tiaa entire line, and the char
acter of the work done, in rushing
the location survey, later sustained
