Another railway scheme is in contemplation which may yield quicker and better results for the people of Goldendale and this valley than the Vancouver and Yakima. That an electric road is to be built up the Klickitat river, with feeders to extend to Goldendale another important points. The principal shipping trade of the road, besides the passenger traffic, would be considerable, would be in grain, lumber and wood. The way would be down grade with loaded cars, and about all the power required would be sufficient quantity to return the empty cars. Mr. Nesbitt received a letter a few days ago that gives positive information that the road will be built just as soon as the locks are completed. From all reports it is pretty certain that the locks will be in use in less than a year, and if all works as expected the people of Goldendale may soon hope to be connected with the outside world. -- Goldendale Sentinel.
