Work on Monday.
On M ,relay morning laat a crew of
workmen began the contemplated im

Company's system, beginning simul-
taneouly at Cottage Grove, Eugene,
Albany and K'meburg. The improve
ments consist* of ari additional toll cir-
cult between Eugene ami Cottage
Grove and an additional copper circuit
between Rose burg ami Oakland and
also between Halsey and Albany.
These improvements are not imper
atively needed for ordinary business,
hut will be of incalcuable value in
times of a rush husiness or when an
accident or other sudden demand re
quires immediate service.
owing to the growth of business of the
'company they will soon be in the Hat-
, ure of practical necessities. Changes
iri the system will also be made be
tween Rosehurg and Medford ami lie
tween Albany and Portlami so that the
efficiency ami promptness o f the entire
service will be assured in any possible
emergency. As there were more sup
plies shipped to Cottage (»rove than to
Eugene, the heaviest part o f the work
will he from this point. The company
has been collecting material at the four
lioints named above for the pa9t six
weeks. The improvements will cost in
the neighborhood o f $75,000.
