Last Saturday Alturas wss favored
by a visit from T. F. Dun na way,
vice-president of tbe N C-O. Railway

tlemen came to look over tbe land
with a view tdletermlnlng the ad

Tbey were heartily welcomed by the
executive committee of tbe Chamber
of Commerce, on behalf of tba citi

tbe Railroad to come to this place.
Mr. Dunnaway discussed tbe mat

over several tracts of land which
had been proposed as suitable site
for a depot, and upon which the
chamber of commerce had secured
options for that purpose.
That evening a banquet was given
by the executive committee, at wbicb
Mr. Dunnaway aud Mr. Oliver were
the guests of honor. We are inform

occasion, and that champaign and
eloquence flowed freely. The mem

sured Mr. Dunnaway, on, behalf of
the people of Alturas, that our town
would be glad and willing for the
railroad to build into the corpoiate
Mr. Dunnaway stated as a positive
fact that tbe road will be extended at
least as far as Likely, as they now
have euough rails on hand to lay the
track for that .distance. But, as la
bor Is ao difficult to obtain, he
fear that the road may not be built
as far as Alturas this fall. However,
even If the, road la extended only to
Likely this season, Mr. Dunnaway
thinks the grade will be built for
quite a distance on this side ' of that
towu, so that the exteuson work can
be pushed forward as soon as labor
oan be obtained.
Mr. Duunaway seemed to heartily
appreciate the kindly feeling of our
towu towards his company and said
that preseut he could see no raasou
