Manager R.A. Graham will reach Roseburg to-morrow morning from San
Francisco and leave immediately for Coos bay.  He has procured a large force
of Chinamen for grading who have been shipped from the city by steamer. 
Reports from Marshfield are to the effect that work is going on along the line
as reported in last week's Review. The force is being increased just as fast as
it is possible to secure men. The surveyors who have located the line to Myrtle
Point or near there, have been taken off from that part of the work. It is
intended to put on the surveyors to locate the line through the canyon above
Myrtle Point out to Roseburg in about four weeks. The location through the
canyon will be the most difficult piece of engineering work on the road and
the best of engineers  will have charge of it. Forty miles of steel rails purchased
in Philadelphia were shipped by water from that city for Coos bay three weeks
ago and are expected to arrive here shortly.  --  Roseburg Review.  +   [cp]

The R.R. --- The work on the Roseburg, Coos Bay and Eastern railroad is
being rushed along as fast as possible under the circumstances. Mr. Graham
has given the Roseburg Review the progress and status of the business. It is
owing to the fact that much of their machinery can't be successfully used
among the roots [sic];. that owing to the fruit season in California few
Chinamen can be had, and the further fact that most of the work at present is
piling, bridging, etc., that work is not more vigorously prosecuted at this time. 
In a month work will be active with a large force. The rails for 30 miles and
the engines for road will be here in three months.  The road will be complete
to Roseburg in time to carry next season's crop, and the time  called for in
bonus contract will be met at every point.   +  [cp]
