New Yokk, April 14 The Oregon
Railroad A Navigation Company will ex
lend its Hjbtein into Centra Oregon,,
guaranteeing lo Portland meicliauta con
trol of the trade uf this rich eeclion and
making iia radid development certain.
This decision of t tie officers of (he com
pany has just been announced.. The pro
posal to extend has been under consider
ation for some tune, lint until today
nothing definite baa been given out that
would reassure Portland jibbers aud
wholesale men. 1 he ahroiute promise
ol an extension lias now been made.
To T. B. Wilcux, who came lo New
Yuik as the representative of ti e Chum
ber of Commerce, be longs Ibe credit for
securing this eaily announcement of the
company a plans, if not tieu entire credit
for pull iiui through the deal. Mr Wil
cox has been in coiiHtiltaiion with Presi
dent E. 11. Harriman, of the Union Pa
cific and chairman of the board of direc
tors of the O. R. & N., ie!tive to the ex
tension for nig home with the assurance
that the company will do as Portland has
The details of the extension have not
yet been woiked out, but these will be
decided upon immediately. Construc
tion work will be commenced eoon.
Surveya for Parallel Line.
The O. R. & N. has gone bo far with
its proposal to parallel the Columbia
Southern as to order surveys for a line,
leaving the main line at or near The
Dalles and going up the Ues Chutes river
valley into Southern Oregon. From dif
ferent points in Central Oregon there
have been proposals to extend in differ
ent directions. The construction of this
line has been found to be entirely feasi
ble and the officials of the O. R. & N.
are inclined to concede that the Colum
bia Southern could be built into the
same tenitory upon an advantageous
The threat of the Nevada, California
i Oregon o extend from Madeline into
Oregon carried with it the declaration of
the Columbia Southern that its line will
be continued to meet thissystem. Should
the two smaller lines be able to carry
out this plan, the distiict in Central and
Southern Oregon now practically with
out railroad communication would be
given a route almost direct into San
'rancisco, and the construction of the
road would divert a very profitable trade
9!.t Portland to the California metropo-
Another proposal for an extension
rom the Southern Pacific's line into thin
uted territory has also been dis usstd
bin railroad men have never regarded
l he probahiliiy of its actual construction
Another proposal tint threatened
Portland's interest was for the construc
tion of a branch of the Oieiton Short
Line from Payette into Central Oreuou.
Such a lino might have connected with
an extension of the Columbia Southern
and would have to be built soiuli of the
Blue Mountain distiict But it would
open up a country neither of the -other
plans would tap.
O. It. & Ji. to Control Central Oregon.
It is evident from the reading of both
the special dispatch from New York and
Mr. W:lcox's telegram that the O. R. &
N Mas determined to do whatever rail
road building is attempted in Central
and Southern Oregon. This determina
tion means to Portland that no outside
Hvsleui will he permitted to interfere
with a trade that naturally belongs to
this city and indicates the complete suc
cess of the plans ot the Chamber of Com
merce. Central Oregon is one of the richest
sections of country in the West, though
at present it is more of a sheep and cat
tleraising district than agricultural terri
tory. With the coining of railroad facil
ities, however, it is believed Ihe country
will be developed rapidly and the influx
of settlers, now scarcely felt in that dis
trict, will be a potent factor in its growth.
The details of the extension, it is ap
parent, are to be settled at once. Within
a comparatively short time it will be
definitely known whether the 0. R. &N.
intends to build a line of its own or
whether It will extend the Columbia
Southern. But one thing is certain and
that is that Central andSouthern Ore
gon are to be opened up just as quickly
as railroad constructors can lay the rails.

A CONTINUOUS CANAL.
Representative Mondr CnulU With
Enlgneers, Hho Milt Neon Report.
Washington, Abril 13. Representa
tive Moody, before leaving Washington,
had a final conference with members of
ihe boa id of engineers having under
consideration the opening of the Colum
bia river trom The Dalles to Ceiilo, and
was informed that the board will meet
in Portland May 11 to consider more
l fully all dala that has recently been col
' lezied by Major Lanalitl regarding the
portion ul the river to he Improved.
Mr. Moody nays that while it is im
possible to say what the board will final
ly leport, its conclusion will largely de
pend upon calculations to be based on
data that has been compiled by Major
Langfitt, bearing on the several modifi
cations or substitutions for the Hart's
Mr. Moody also bad under considera
tion with the engineers the removal of
one of the reefs at Ten-Mile Rapids, with
a view to facilitating steamboat naviga
tion up to the lower end of the proposed
state portage road. That proposition
will be considered by the board when
its meets. The board will probably vis
it the obstructions in the river and will
determine for ittelf the need of blasting
on this re'. Having viewed the rivnr
during the Bummer, the board at its
coming meeting" will have opportunity
to see the stream at the high stage of
the water and form a better idea of the
v 'luine of water to be controled.
The board will make an extraordinary
effort to devise a practical plan that can
be carried out at a cost not exceeding
Captain Harts' estimate for his original"
scheme, and there is some hope that
such a plan may eventually be found In
the light of data that ha-been collected
by Major Langtitt,tbe board will be able
closely to estimate the cost of the sever
al mxlilicalions of the Harts' project
that have been proposed and will also
be able to estimate the cost of other
schemes that have been brought foiward
by other engineers.
Mr. Moody hag urged that, if the
Harts' plan in an amended form is not
agreed upon, the board will seriously
consider the proposition of a continuous
canal from the Big Eddy to Ceiilo, and
determine whether or not such a canal
can be built by making use of natural
channels through the rocks to the south
of the river, at a cost not greater than
Harts' estimate. Tine suggestion will
be investigated and, if it proves feasible
at reasonable cost, may be accepted, as
ihe advantages of a continuous canal are
recognized many of the oflicers.
Bite Ball Season.
The base ball at awn of 1903 will open
at Cane niah Park, Oregon City, Sucdav,
April lit, '03.
This announcement will be read with
pleasure by the lovers of good, clean
sport of Oregon City for it will give them
a chance to see some of (lie best amateur
teams of tbt state come to our city and
cross bats with our own boys, and there
is no question hut what our boys will be
able to take rare of our interests.
Our team should be liberally supported
both financially and with large attend
ance, as last year plainly demonstrated
ih.it our home team was composed of
gentlemen and first class player, always
playing clt an ball. Ihe promoters this
year have secured most of last year s
players and have the advantage of a ball
gioui.d in the edge of town, which should
more than ddtible the attendance of last
vear, and this being the case, they will
ie able to bring all the best te .ins ot the
coast here this seuson. lint a successlui
season cannot be carried on unless the
team has the support and patronage of
the ciiy first, last and all the time, as it
costs money to bring good teams here
and keep good players at home.
This year Oregon City will have one of
the beat ball paras in the state. Mr.
Fields has a large gang ot men at work
now and will have ihe ground in first
class shape for Sunday's game. There
wilt be plenty of teats, as the large ,r.md
statd will hold 400 and the bleachers
400, so everyone can have a good seat.
The first game will be with the Fidelity
team, of Portland. This team played
Jack Grim'a Nationals last Sunday and
held them down to four runs. Now
come and see what oar boys will do to

Think It Will Be Reversed.
New York, April 13. Wall straet
agrees that a death blow has been dealt
the Northern Securhies Compapy by
the decision of the federal court. 2ijP&
of those interested in the great coioxroa
lion which holds a majority of shaaesof
the Northern Pacific aud Great North
ern Railroade, including J. Pie.rpont
Morgan and James J. Hill, has given np
hope that the decision will be reversed
by the supreme court, but others are uot
so confident. Mr. Hi 1 was in conijr
etice with his lawyer nearly all day imt
cusning ihe decision of tiie circuit court
of appeals. 11 jiso conferred with Mr.
Moigan and Charles Steele rei'ding
the case. Speaking of the import of the
decision to ti e San Francisco Call corre
spondent, Mr. fl ill said:
"if this decision is upheld by the su
preme court (but I am confidet th;t it
will not be) no leB than 8o or ',0 per
cent of the rauroad systems in the
United States will be up in the air. All

have not read their books aright. I do
not wish to enter into the merits or de
merits of the case, but mark this, fur
ther evidence will be introduced by the
Northern Securities Company, and we
are just as positive as ever that we shall
prove our contention to the satisfaction
of the supreme court."
Asked what plan would be pursued
if the company be defeated in the au
prema court, Mr. Hill said:
"We have made no preparations fjr
defeat, and do uot expect it. Bat if it
should come, wo shall then have some
plan to announce, for, of course, we
could not then stand still. Our asset
would not be diminished and the intrin
sic worth of our property would not have
depreciated I cent., and it would be nec
essary for us to provide some plan fur
