Road Will Go by Long Valley

ONE CONTRACT HAS BEEN LET AND OTHR BIDS WILL BE ACCEPTED TODAY

It has now been definitely announced that the wagon road to Thunder Mountain to be built from this place will go by way of Long Valley. The line will be from Emmett to Dry Buck, into High Valley, then down the old wagon road to Smith's Ferry, thence on up to Big Creek or Clear Creek.

C. F. Fisher, a merchant of Van Wyck, has secured the contract for building the cut-off between Tripod and Van Wyck, and the contract will be let today for the contracts between Dry Buck and High Valley. There are a large number of bidders for this work.

Engineers J. M. Clark and Ed. Hedden were over this week making the survey for the cut-off. Mr. Hedden will have charge of the work until completion.

Mr. Fisher, who has the contract for the first cut-off will return from Nampa today and will begin immediate work.
