The West- ern Pacific can't a'fford> to miss Reno-.- It emerges' from .weary miles of mountain to cros's desolate miles of 'desert and it certainly must either pass through a laVge town on "-the .eastern slope of tlii Sierras pr build one." The above is practically what the chief engineer of the Western. Pacific railroad company, told W.. Webster, a mining man of this city, who has just returned from a trip through' the nor- thern country, where he inspected sev- eral mining properties. M. Webster says that the Western Pacific company has not definitely settled upon the Beckwith route, but is now surveying through the Day Creek pass. The engineering parties number, 150 men and at present have headquarters at Susanvllle. i Mr. Webster gathered conver- sation with the surveyors that the most practicable and shortest route that has yet been considered, is south to Reno thence to the vicinity of Day- ton and directly eastward across the state to a point two hundred miles so'uth. of Salt Lake. This is'hot1 only a perfectly feasable line, but is several hundred miles shorter than the tortuous course along the Principal Atkinson and Students pf Me Nevada Business Insti- tute Show Renoites Through the New College Building opened up his big heart and will fur- nish. the hall free and a goodly portion of the amber refreshments, surnamed "Elite. -The smoker will take place a week from, next Saturday night if .ar- rangements can be .made.-, V Will Pave Streets While .nothing, authentic has .been -Is understood that as soon more, the 6th of November.
