TOO HMY PftSSD
Western Roads Find Cause of
ANYTHING TO GET BUSINESS
Free Tickets Given Profusely to Se
cure Jjarge Volume of Freight
and Passenger Traffic
Roads Will Be Good.
CHICAGO. Aug. 8. (Special.) Western
roads now appear to in a fair -way to set
tle their passenger rate difficulties. It
was announced today that the Northwest
ern and the Mllwaukle & St. Paul had
agreed to the plan submitted at the
meeting of the Western and Transconti
nental Passenger Associations last week.
This leaves only two roads that have thus
far failed to fall in with the plan. It
is said that the consent of these Js not
vital, at least to 4the partial success of
the method to be adopted. At least the
other roads will put it Into operation and
give it a thorough test.
Most of the troubles which now exist
in Western territory have been created,
not by any socret cutting of rates directly
or by extensive deals with ticket-brokers,
but by the irregular and wholesale issue
of free transportation in connection with
the contracting of large parties for con
ventions and similar business. To such
an excess has this been carried that it
is stated that a road, to secure a party
of 25, issued no fewer than 23 free tickots.
It is charged also that the freight de
partments of the various roads have con
tributed largely to the demoralization
that has existed by the liberal use of
free transportation to obtain large ship
ments of freight.
Now both sources 'of evil are to be
removed. The issue of free transportation
is to be stopped and roads that have
such transportation outstanding are to
furnish lists of It to the chairman of the
traffic associations, so that all may know
exactly what has been done. The roads
parties to the agreement bind themselves
to a rigid maintenance of rates from
this time forth.
ARE GUESTS OF HARR1MAN

damned If you don't.' So far as the doctor
Is concerned, really the less said about his
methods, the better. (Laughter.) But free
advice, particularly in regard to a business
matter, another man's business. Is so cheap,
po easy altogether, that on this occasion I
am seine to make a feWsuggestlons to you.
You have made a few suggestions to us.
I have a pamphlet in my pocket full, more
or less, of misstatements of fact, written by
a very eminent lawyer; but all our legal
friends misstate facts; that is a part 'of
their business. Among other' things that
pamphlet states that the Oregon Commis
sion had no power. I challenge theattcn
tlon of any lawyer to the fact that the
Oregon Commission had more power than
any railroad commission that was ever cre
ated In the United States. It was author
ized and directed to nx every rate upon the
line of the navigation company and to re
vise those rates from time to time without
complaint whenever they might see nt; and
it did fix our rates, and If any man would
ask Mr. B. Campbell tomorrow he would
say that a branoh line In Oregon cannot
charge anything for its haul, and as the
result of the action of the Oregon Commis
sion, the Oregon Railway & Navigation
Company has never charged, for over 15
years, a cent more for hauling wheat from
Elgin than it charged from La Grande, or
from Heppner than 11 charged from the
Junction within a few miles of Willows
Junction; and that was fixed and made by
a decision of this Oregon Commission; And
It was Mr. Campbell's impression about two
years ago that there was a law tn the State
of Oregon which prohibited branch lines of
the Navigation Company from charging any
thing on wheat; and that was the Impression
of a good many people In the East.
But I do not want to refer at length to this
matter. We have no quarrel with the trans
portation committee; I for one appreciate Us
efforts. 1 believe we should co-operate. I
believe we have a very great undeveloped
state, for the development of which the at
tention of every man here should be directed.
("That is right." Applause.) There Is one
proposition, however, to which I wish to call
your attention this evening. On June 17. 1002,
over three years ago. the Congress of the
"United States passed an act provldnlg that
the proceeds of all the lands sold should go to
create a fund for the purpose of Irrigation.
In 30 Mates this act applied, and in those
states, as the result of land sales since July 1,
1001. a fund has been created of $ 23,000.000.
Of this 523,000,000 In the 16 state. $4,200,000
has been contributed by the States of Oregon.
In these states during three years llttfe or
nothing has been done, and absolutely nothing
of any value or Importance has been done In
the tSate of Oregon. I attended the Tanners
convention at Echo this Summer, and one of
the speakers there said there had been a
crowd of engineers In his country for over
three years; that they would go out In the
morning and set a stake in the ground, and
then pull It up and taste the earth and say
It was acid; then they would otlck another
stake down about ten feet away, pull that up
and taste the earth and eay It was alkaH;
then go off a short distance and put another
stake down and eay that was neither acid
nor alkali, and then they would go back to
camp to analyze the earth, and that consti
tuted their day's work. For three years that
has been going on, and In the State of Oregon
absolutely no money has been spent out of
this $4,000,000. In Arizona and California.
Arizona contributing $183,000 to the fund. Cal
ifornia $1,822,000. Irrigation projects requir
ing the expenditure of $0,000,000 are actually
under contract today. In Wyoratns. contrib
uting $900,000. and Nebraska, contributing
492,000. Irrigatlo nprojects involving the ex
penditure of $5,750,000 are today under con
tract. "We have $4,000,000. as against f 2.000,-
000 in Arizona and California, as against
81,400,000 In Nebraska and Wyoming, and eaoh
of them have contracts running tip to $0,000.
O00. and we are not turning a single spadeful
of earth In the State of Oregon. Now. gen
tlemen, you. In my opinion, are properly nric
Ing et the bands of the railroads development
along legUImate lines. Tou cannot expect. In
my. opinion, to ask Mr. Harrlman to build
railroads In the State of Oregon without tell
ing him where to .build those lines. I have
been at Bend; that is a project In which near
ly $500,000' has been epent; the land is not
yet under Irrigation, and will not be yet for
some time to come. But there are' many other
places within the State of Oregon which can
be Irrigated. To ask us to build these lines
and then have these Irrigation projects devel
opedbecause Oregon Is a large state and
find .we have to reach them by a broach line,
is a Burden upon us and an imposition Tjporj
the community. . 1 eay- Oregon 1 a large
state. How many of ' you gentlemen have
ever been at Bend? How many of you have
ever been In the Harney Valley How many
of you gentleman have been In Klamath and
Lake Counties How many of you can hon
estly tell me. from your own personal knowl
edge, what lies over here 25 miles away from
the City of Portland? Now. we are Just as
ignorant of this state as you are; our means
of knowledge are not much better than yours.
1 want you gentlemen of these commercial
organizations to organize a strong push club
which will take tip this $4,000,000 that ha
been lying dormant for over three years and
have that money expended as the law re
quires, - within the limits of the State of
Oregon. (Great applause.) Then, when you
get after that, .get after us if we do not
build. Into that territory; hut I assure you,
from what little I know .of Mr. Harrlman. ho
will go where e"vex there Is a-real occasion or.
Incentive for him to go. (Applause.) But I
think you owe It to him and to the Naviga
tion Company to eee that this money 1
I have always talked one other thing, and
that is the Columbia Rive rbar. It Is going to
be referred to by another speaker, but I feel
that If you furnished a 30-foot channel out of
the Columbia River, there will be a water
level grade extending from the City of Port
land to the east for nearly 100 miles, (Great
applause.) Mr. Harrlman has furnished the
brains and the billions for the improvement
of there llnep, but brains an d billions ex
pended on any other railroad line In the
United States could not gals the facilities
which are furnlhed by the Oregon Railway &'
Navigation Company, the Oregon Short Line
and the Union Pacific. (Great applause.) They
come to Portland, and here they are bottled
up. Tou must open that bottle, that la your
duty. This advice Is free, it is offered gener
ously, because every interest I have Is located
out here In the eastm n dfo Multnomah
County, I am hre to Kay. and I a mhere to
do the best I can for the City of Portland
and the State of Oregon. (Applause.)
Governor Chamberlain Speaks.
Governor Chamberlain was intro
duced and spoke as follows:
Mr. Harrlman and Gentlemen: It is a very
great pleasure to ns to have Mr Harrlman
with us tonight, and to have back with us
a gentleman whom we all love, and whom a
few weeks ago we wined and dined on, and
whom we are now assisting In wining and
dining off. (Laughter.) We all feel under
many obligations to Mr. Harrlman and those
who have been operating with) him for the
development of this state, and we hope we may
yet be under other and more lasting obliga
tions to him for Meetings yet to oeme to the
people of this magnlfleent state. (Great ap
plause.) At the last banqwet. It Is possible
that those of "us who are lawyers would have
heMtated somewhat to differ with Brother
Cotton on any subject (laughter), but we
have him back with us new; he Is one of us,
and It la a question of catch-as-catch-can and
a rough-and-tumble fight on any proportion
that cornea up. But now. my friend Mr.
Cotton ys that the railroad eompany which
he has so ably represented for a great many
years past Is practically bottled up, and that
It rests with the people of this state to un
cork that bottle and open up the country Into
which those railroad companies may go and
ansL in the further development of this
I have been to the Bend country and I
differ a little with Mr. Cotton with reference
to what has been done in that section. Pri
vate enterprise Is at work undertaking to de
velop a groat region In the interior of this
state. The Deschutes Irrigation & Power Com
pany, represented by Barters capitalists, has
gone to work there. Another Irrigation com
pany baa gone to work Immediately acrom
the DeMhutes River, and much of this land
has already been patented by the United
States to the State of Oregon; so that there
two fcntorp rises have now In course of Irri
gation fiomothlng like 500.000 acres of land.
The main ditches have been built, and these
companies arc now at work constructing lat
eral ditches for the benefit of those who may
settle there. (Great appUus-e.) Not only
that, but the headwaters of the ditches which
have been taken from the Deschutes River are
at an altitude so igh that as the country
slopes In a defending grade from the head
waters of the Deschutes clear across the lands
which have already been reached and further
to the north to the Warm Springs Indian res
ervation, there is opened up a -magnificent
country which Is susceptible of irrigation, and
which will eventually, with the assistance of
the peocple of the state and of the railroad
companies, be opened up to development.

MIDNIGHT SPECIAL NEEDED
Cars Departing From Portland at 12
o'GIock at Xight "Would Great
ly Facilitate Travel to
Commercial bodies of Pondelton. Walla
Walla, Baker City. La Grande and 6ther
of the more Important towns reached by
the Oregon Railroad and Navigation Com
pany are asking for additional train ser
vice such as would bo furnished by a
local passenger train between Huntington
and Portland, arriving In Portland at
some hour In the forenoon, and leaving
for the Eastern part of the State about
midnight. At present the leaving time
of trains for the interior ovor this line
is such that State visitors cannot re
main In Portland for the evening, and so a
heavy demand is anticipated for the com
ing months that it Is the belief of mem
bers of commercial associations the addi
tion of the train Is justified. At present
passenger train; of the system leave the
Union Depot at 9:15 o'clock In the morn
ing and at 6:15 and 8:15 o'clock In the
evening. With the additional train leav
ing at a later hour it Is argued that con
gestion would be relieved on the S:15
o'clock train for the East because a large
part of the local business would be
handled on the later train.
The Pendleton Commercial Association
has formulated a petition that has been
forwarded to General Manager J. P.
O'Brien of the railroad, asking that the,
train be established and similar petitions
have cither been prepared or are under
consideration by the citizens of the
other places mentioned. Interest of Walla
Walla In the effort Is in order that it
will be possible to leave Portland at mid
night and make connection at Pendleton
with the Spokane train leaving that point
at 9 o'clock in the morning, thus giving
two trains to Spokane and Eastern Wash
ington points from Portland. Leaving
Portland at midnight a new. train would
reach Pendleton about S:38 o'clock in the
morning, La Grande about 11:30. Baker
City about 2 o'clock In the afternoon
and Huntington at 3:30.
Traveling men who cover Eastern Ore
gon and Washington territory would wel
come the train, as It would enable them,
together with the other regular trains,
to get over the routes much more rapidly.
At the office of General Manager O'Brlon
It was stated yesterday in reply to a
query, that the petition from Pendleton
has been received -but not acted upon
as yet. A representative of the traffic
department is Investigating the situa
tion to determine whether there Is Just
cause for complaint that the service Is
Inadequate, and as to what communities
would be most benefited by establish
ment of another train.
During the rush of travel to Portland
the Company has been running Its regu
lar trains In sections when business war
ranted, which Is a convenience both In
handling the trains and In taking care
of the people without adding the expense
of a regular train, which, once establish
ed, would have to be operated dally.
