saying that large crews would be
kept at work all winter. That
paper says further:
As tho local construction engi
neers have been stating that they
would be through with their grad
ing work in the local yards be
fore Thanksgiving, there is every
reason to believe that these rail
road officials will be given more
instructions after the completion
of their present work. As far
as can be learned seven miles of
tract will be laid this winter in
the Vale yards although those in
structions have not yet been
given Engineer Grimes, in charge
of the work here. It is also
learned upon good information
that grading will be commenced
on the main line of the Oregon
& Eastern after the improve
ments of tho local yards, and that
the first appropriation provides
for 8G miles of track.
That grading work will be done
this winter is learned through a
number of contracts the railroad
company has made with some

going even higher. Over at Pen

yearlings was refused.
The local, stock men have sold
rather close during this season
and last and therefore Harney
county will not receive as much
benefit from such a raise as in
the past. Our stockmen still
have stuff that will be beef in
the spring but owing to lack of
transportation can not reach the
early spring market that would
give them a good profit.
When we get transportation

greatly benefited in this respect.
