The construction of a branch rail
road from Pacific Railway &
Navigation company's line at Tilla
mook up the Wilion river as far as
McNamet's caop a distance of 36
miles, wa announced yesterday by
President hy He. This is in addi

the mainline ttstward from Buxton
to Tillamook. With the completion
of the main li, 'attention will be
turned to the dJetent branches.
The primarjjtirpoe of a road up
the Wilson rive will be to haul out
the vast bodies of standing timber
on both sides rfthe stream. The
forests are extesive and are of ex

timber in the Tjlson river valley to

Good Roads and Rural Mails.
It is announced that the govern
ment will look more caretully to the
enforcement of its rule regarding
the roads over which rural free de
livery is established. The present
requirement is: "Roads traversed
shall be kept in good condition, and
unobstructed by gates; there must
be no unbridged creeks or streams
not fordable at any season of the
year." In many cases the residents
along proposed routes have made
improvements that enable them to
obtain rural delivery service, but
sometimes the efforts to keep up the
roads are relaxed. But the govern
ment has decided that unless the
roads traveled by the carrier are pro
perly maintained the service will be
withdrawn. The post office depart
ment now calls on the carriers for
reports on the roads and will stop
the service where the highways in
question are bad.
The 35,973 rural delivery carriers
now employed cover 863,363 miles
daily, and it is unreasonable to ex
pect them to contend with neglect
ed roads, or to work for communi
ties lacking the enterprise to keep
its common highways in decent
shape. Wherever a route is discon
tinued themselves are to blame for it,
for if alive to their own interests
and their duty to the public they
would give their roads various and
constant attention. I he iaea mat
a route once authorized is necessar
ily permanent is a mistake. Advice
on the best road methods is supplied
by the agricultural department, and
a neighborhood that loses its rural
delivery must itselfbear the discred-
it for so unpleasant and humiliating
an event. Newberg Graphic.

Senator Burkett of Nebraska Ins
secured the passage of resontmn
calling on the postoflice department
to show by what authority postofli-
ces are opened on Sunday. It is
preliminary to an effort to secure
either a regulation or legislation un
der which all offices may be kept
closed throughout the Sabbath.
"There is no real need of mail de
livery in cities, or openinj country
offices on Sunday," said Senator
Burkett. "It does not seem certain
whether the determination of the
matter is merely by execu ive order
or requires legislation; so I want to
get an explanation of the xact stat
us of it. If it is by execu. ive order
of the department, I hope I can se
cure an order stopping it; if it needs
legislation the effort will b made in
that direction. There is no reason
why postoflice employees s'unild uot
have something like the rt al day of
rest that other people enjoy."
