Company, states that there ara more
than forty stations between Portland
and Oregon City, and that if some of
the stops In Oregon City were reduced
and mora sidings Installed. It would
be possible to make express speed
between the two extreme points.
"We are running an Interurban line."
said Mr. Hunt, "and not a streetcar
system, and we would like to event
ually make the service better, but we
cannot do thla under present operat
ing and trackage conditions. With
three or four new sidings, we could
easily maintain a umiied car every
two houra between Portland and
Oregon City and by making, aay four
or rive stops, at Miiwauaie. uih
Grove, Gladatone and Oregon City, we
could cut the time down to 35 min

Our cars run fast enough, but too
