Few Weeks and the Road
Will Be Ruatoed.
The report that the Fan Francisco dis
aster would delay the construction of
the California Northeastern railroad
and possibly prevent Ha completion in
to Klamath Falla Ixrfore next March
gained such headway and received so
much credence in thia city, that the Re
publican, on learning that President
Naftzger was at Bovee’s ranch, cam-
municated with him over the telephone.
When asked aa to what foundation
the rumor hail, Mr. Nzftzger replied
“Absolutely and positively no foun
dation at all. The only delay or inter-
ferience with the rapid construction and
prompt completion of the California
Northeastern will tie duo to replacing
the equipment and supplies of the con-
tractors which were destroyed in San
Francisco. This delay will be very
.light-not more than a few weeks, and
after they are replaced the work will
be pushed with so much energy that by

“None whatever," replied Mr. Nafts-

shock ao severe that it has affected every

much to financial stringency as to the
fact that the people of the entire Pa-
i citic coast have been etunned by the
magnitude of the horror.
"Conditions are rapidly adjusting them-
selves, however, and before long there
will be greater industrial activity than
the Pacific coast has ever known before.
