Informally last week with councll-men-elect

The heavy Increase In both paise
ger and freight business In nud out
of ilend during tho last live mouth
has Justltled the Oregon Trunk Rail
road In resuming dally passenger
and freight train service to replace
tho present dally mixed train ser
vice. The now arrangement will be
coino effective o.irly In Janunr.v.
There hns been n marked and
steady growth In trnlllc In and out
of Ilend In Iho Inst live mouths, ac
cording to J. II. Corbott, local agent,
and with the outlook for the coming
ear moro promising than It has been
for some tlmo pnHt, the Oregon Trunk
believes that It Is Justified In giving
local trnlllc more efficient trnln ser
vice than It has had for the last seven
mouths when mixed trnln servico was
put on the read. It Is also felt that
offering straight passenger nud
freight servico will conduce to more
travel between Portland and Ilend

expecting n heavy Inrrenso In tho
freight business nfter February 1 ow

when the mills open for business.
