J. P. O'Brien Announces Decision of
His Company Directors.
Ieics J8 given out that the Harriman
system is going to build to Coos Bay
out from Eugene, and the announce
ment is being received with a great
deal of Interest because of what It
will do toward thtf development of
Western Oregon. The Poriland Jour
nal relates of the announcement:
Forced Into the open by the activity
of two English syndicates, one plan
ning to build to Coos Bay from Rose
burg and the other to follow the Slua
law river, General Manager J. . P.
O'Brien has issued a statement that
the Southern Pacific will begin p.t
once' the construction of a line from
Eugene to Marshflt Id.
. .The announcement includes an ad
mission that work already done ou u
line from Drain to Marshfield was an
expensive mistake, and will have to
be abandoned.' Several hundred thoii'
sand dollars at least was expended in
surveys, grading and bridge and con
struction work on the Drain-Coos Bar
road, which was favored scheme of
E. E.. Calvin when he was general
manager of the Southern Pacific Ore
gon, lines. '- . . ; . . ;. ".. .
Some 30 or 40 miles of work was
done on the Drain-Coos Bay line, In
cluding grading, laying of rails and
bridge work. Mr. O'Brien said today
the bridges will be taken down" and
the steel used elsewhere, the rails al
ready having been taken up, and what
ever steps are possible will be taken
to retrieve the mistake of the Drain
line. It remains, however, one of the
costly errors of 'the Harriman chiefs
In the northwest.
Haggle Over Terms.
, Since the late E. H. Harriman quar
reled with the people of Coos Bay over
the terms upon which the Drain-Coos
Bay line .was to be built, and aban
doned the project the Harriman chiefs
have been busy looking out for anoth
er end cheaper route to Coos Bay.
Some time ago the Euge-nc-Marshfleld
line was decided upon as. the more
feasible proposition, and surveys wer
made. Then, following th usual Har
riman policy, work was temporarily
abandoned to aee whether anyone else
wanted to get to Coos Bay badly
enough to expend money on a road, .
Several propositions were soon tak
en up, among them the Haines-Clarke
survey from RoBeburg to Myrtle Point
to promote which a company headed
by Samuel ConnEll of Portland was or
ganized.. The survey was offered for
sale to' numerous parties, but, it Is
said, has never found a purchaser.
Last spring, however, two English
syndicates came .upon the- Bcene. Both
have enormous financial backing and
both were apparently working lnde-
I pendently of each other.' :
English Capital Interested. (
One, represented by . E. Copper
thwaite, of London, In which E. C
Cox, a millionaire operator of West
Virginia and other wealthy Americans
were interested, has taken up a pro
ject from Roseburg. The other, which
is said to have the backing of . the
greatest financiers oi England . has
been at 'work on the Sluslaw project.
. In that remarkable way In which
the Harriman representatives seem
able to learn the most secret moves of
possible rivals, the Southern Pacific
officials heard of the plans of these
two syndicates. Investigations made
by Mr. O'Brien Impressed him with
the necessity for a quick move on the
part of his people and he hurried east
last month for this purpose. The de
termination to make an announcement
of the Harriman plans was made at
that time, and Mr. O'Brien has made
a detailed statement, apparently in
the hope that it may deter to the Eng
lish syndicates from going ahead with
their plans.' That it will have this
effect Is a matter those who have been
closest to the English syndicates are
Inclined to doubt 1 , .
The Harriman plans as detailed by
Mr. O'Brien are to complete the Eu-gene-Marshfleld
road within two years.
He says he expects It will cost $8,.
000,000 and will be from 125 to 130
miles in length. It will follow th
Sluslaw river, through the coast rang?
and on to the coast, thence sou.h to
j MarshEeld.
; Thrfe reasons are advanced by Mr.
O'Brien for preferring the Eugene to
Drain routt! first, that the former will
.pass through a richer district; second
that Eugene will be located, on the
main line upon the completion of the
Natrcn cut-eff, while Drain will be on
the western, or branch line; third, that
the Eugene road will tap a very larg?
body of timber own;d by the Oregon
& California railroad. This : timber.
however, may not long remain the
property of the Oregon & California as
the United States has brought suit to
cancel the railroad's title to it, and
has already won out In the United
States circuit court This timber Is a
part of the Oregon & California con
gressional land grant '

George X. vendling, of San Fran
cisco, the president. Is manager of the
California Sugar Pine company, which
operates an Immense plant at Mc
Cloud, In northern California. Mr.
Wendling and his ' company attained
considerable prominence In California
as enemies of union labor. His back
ers are men of great wealth and own
large tracts of timber tributary to the
proposed Eugene-Coos Bay line. Mr.
O'Brien estimates the total timber tri
butary to th proposede line at 15,000,-
000 feet. ' ,
The Wlllame'.te Pacific has a capi
talzation of $1,000,000, and all of th
stock Is held by the Southern Pacific
company. The line win be built lu
the same manner as the Tillamook
road the Pacific Railway & Naviga
tion -company Is being constructed,
and will become a part of the main
line- when completed. The Tillamook
line will be In operation September 1,

Search and Seizure Act on Deer Hay
'ot Stand. , , ,
Over in Enterprise there is a deffir-
ence of opinion on the search and sei
sure act under which city officials are
operating. Several weeks ago the city
officials through search and seizure
enteed Al Emmons soft drink store
and confiscated some beer which has
proven to be private property. The
beer was put in the hands of Sheriff
Marvin who carefully stored it in the
basement of the nw court house. Now
Mr Emmons is bringing suit to re
cover his property. There never has
been a charge of Illegally selling the
beer, but under the city laws of Enter
prise It seems a search and seizure is
permissible with anybody or at any
time. - Thus a man who has had a
fresh case or keg sent to bis residence
for private use may awaken to find
officers searching the premises for.
the liquor. ,
Now comes the question of owner
ship. Has Emmons a right to drink
his own beer, or has the city a right
to keep in storage th beer that was
bought by Al. Emmons. . When thi Is
decided by the courts then the cus
tody of the beer will be established.
An erroneous impression prevailed
outside of Enterprise relative to the
nature of a place run by Emmons. He
stands well in that community and
has never been in any trouble. Th
report coupling the Joseph girls who
were serving time in the Enterprise
Jail, with the confiscation of the Em
mons beer only served the purpose of
showing what a plight the officials
were in when the Jokesmlth decided
to get in his work, as Is always the'
case around the county seat. The Jo
seph girls were arrested and convicted
in' Joseph and had nothing whatever
to do with the Emmons matter other
than that the two events happened
approximately at. the same time.
