'ALONG THE COAST.'
Item of Onnnrnl Intel-nut Oleaned
From the Thriving I'ncUlo
Consldorulo excitement provaiis from
Lakoviow, Lake county, Oregon, all
j along tho lino to Iteno, Nov., owing to
I tho recent nutlionticated roport of tho
j extension of tho Nevada & California
I railroad from Amedu, Cai., north. Tho
I news of tho purchase of ovei 0,000 tons
, of steel rails in Now York by tho own
, ors of this road was sent out last week,
'and tho material will bo shipped im
mediately to Amedu, preparatory to
beginning of extension work in tho
spring. Tins is a nnrrow-guago road
now terminating at Amedu, and it is
concluded that tho next terminus will
bo Van Loans, 05 miles north, and
nearly crossing over the great Mada
lino plains. It will plnco Lakoviow
within 105 miles of rnilroad trnnapor
tation, and will mako a considcrablo
difference in stock shipping, freighting
and passengor travel. Tho objeot of
tho proposed extension is to head off
tho Southern Pacific Company, which
is now extending its lino from Upton
through tho great McOloud timbor bolt
to Fall Iliver.
Speedy Mall Carrier!.
All records of ice travel on tho Yu
kon have been broken by tho recent feat
of the mounted police of the Northwest
tenitory in bringing a big shipment
of mail from Dawson to Skagway in
nino days and 10 hours. The mail
left DawEon on the morning of.January
15 and was in Skagway before noon on
January 31. Tho record was mado by
tho Canadian officials, it is said, to
show that they could greatly reduco
the tirno being mado by tho United
States mail contractors.
