Little Doubt Entertained That
Harriman Backs the
REASONS ARE ANNOUNCED
With tlie Hope of . JEorcing Hill's
Consent to UseOld Union Pa
" cific night of Way, Xorth
Bank Eight Continues.
Announcements are expected in a short
time of the intention of the Union Pacific
system to push a tentacle north from
Portland to Seattle and Tacoma. -Advices
from, the Sound leave no doubt of- the in
terests acquiring terminal grounds, there,
and the recent incorporation of the
Washington Northern, -with a capital
stock of $500,000, and -with the avowed
intention of -building from -Portland to
Seattle, proves beyond doubt that the
firsf.. steps for reaching the Sound have
been taken bj lir. Harriman.
That the branch to the "Washington har
bors has not been built earlier in the rail
road history -of the Northwest has "been
wondered .at, by . railroad men. The nat
ural objectives of a transcontinental road
such as the Union Pacific are the ports
within .easy reach of its Western ter
minuB. With lines tapping the Sound
country, the Harriman lines will reach
every prominent harbor on the Coast,
while the smaller shipping points are be
ing "reached by branches, such as the
Drain-Coos Bay line.
' Add to the Proof.
Balroad men just returned from the
North add their testimony to" the over
whelming proof of immediate Harriman
construction to Puget Sound. The belief is
general that construction work will be be
gun on such a Jine "within the present
year, "while it will be completed In 1S07.
Estimates of cost cannot now be arrived
at, but it is predicted that the $500,000
named as the capital stock of the Wash
ington Northern represents a nominal be
ginning merely, and that much more than
that sum will be expended in building a j
tt . .1... .1K..J , c? . . .1 .ut.n !
first-class roadbed to the Sound cities.
While the invasion of the Harriman
roads. Into Hill territory may fce regarded
in some quarters as a .-retaliation for the
line down the north bank of the Columbia
and the entry Into what has heretofore
been the preserves of Mr. Harriman, It Is
not the belief of many railroad men that
this is the motive for the construction
northward. A promising field, of great
natural resources, rich In freights, grow
ing more valuable each year as passenger
territory, and bound in the future to be
the home of a dense population, these are
the Inducements for an extension of the
Union Pacific tracks, made possible by
the settlement of the Northern Securities
case and the dissolution of the traffic
agreements formerly existing between the
Routes to the Sonnd.
Routes to the Sound rfrom Portland open
to the Harriman road are Tjelng discussed
and these give rise to considerable spec
ulation. It Is regarded as practically set
tled, however, that the new line will be
built along what is known as the old
Union Pacific grade, paralleling the pres
ent tracks of the Northern Pacific from
Ivaiama to Tacoma. The Union Pacific
once had an interest In this property, and
in connection with the St. Paul, Minneap
olis & Manitoba, a road for which Mr.
Hill was truntee, started to build a road
from Portland to Seattle. This was about
'.5 years ago, and parts of the work along
the old right of way are still visible from
the tracks of the Northern Pacific. Grad
ing was done at many points, prepara
tions were made for the building of
bridges at points along the Lewis River,
and the site for the bridge across the
Columbia River at Vancouver to be built
by the Portland & Seattle was located
and material collected for the approach.
A pier was actually built In the river, and
operations by the Portland &. Seattle arc
now being commenced from this same
pier. The name of the corporation formed
fit that time for the road to be built jolnt
y to the Sound was the Portland &. Puget
, Old Project Abandoned.
With the approach of hard times the
project was abandoned and the. right
of way passed from the control of the
Portland & Puget Sound and was later
acquired by Mr. Hill. It Is said he still
owns It, having paid taxes on It for
If this shall be the route chosen by
the Harriman people for their road to
the north, the right of way has yet to
bo acquired from Hill. Harriman s sup
posed bitterest enemy. And here, say
wise ones, enters tho why and where
fore for tho opposition offered at all
points to the entry of the Portland &
Seattle into Portland. That the fight
against tho north bank road will be
continued by the Wallula Pacific Co
lumbla Valley and O. R. & N.. all Har
riman properties, at strategic points
along the Columbia, at Macgly Junc
tion and everywhere that the law's de-
Jay can harass the Hill road, and when
tho Portland & Seattle chafes at dclay
that offers will be made of ceasing ujl
-opposition to the north banlcroad in
return for the right to build th'e Wash
ington Northern on the orlg-inaUUnlon
Pacific survey, is alleged In some' quar
ters. That the ultimate victory of the
Portland & Seattle .in entering Port
land against O. R. & N. opposition is
only a question of time Is conceded, but
with legal technicalities and various
suits at their command, counsel for
the Harriman interests can postpone
the advent of the Hill road materially.
Reasons for Tactics.
Tnat the Harriman lawyers in their
light against the Hill road have somo
such adjustment In view is shown. say
soraf bj" an attempted enforcement of
a truce with Mr. Hill a short time ago,
when tho Portland & Seattle was of
fered trackage, for a consideration of
course, over the O. R. &. N. from Wal
lula to Portland if operations on the
north bank of the Columbia would be
stopped. This was seriously consid
ered, it is said, but Mr. Hill bad al
ready gone too far with his announce
ments of road building to withdraw
from his survey from Kcnnewick,
Then, too. the probability of another
road coming" down the north bank If
lie gave up the route, -deterred Mr. Hill
from vacating his survey.
Should tho Harriman forces gain the
right to follow the old Union Pacific
survey. It would prpbably be necessary
to gain the right to run over the pres
ent 'Northern Pacific tracks from Ka
lama to: Vancouycr,- as the way down
the bank of the river Is rough and Is
said to.-admit of only one track In
many places. Possibly the bridge across
the, Columbia at Vancouver would be
used jointly also. From the Columbia
River the Washington Northern would
run Its 'trains over the St. Johns cx
tcnsjpn across the steel bridge into
No confirmation can be had locally
of -tho intoiuion - to connect .the O. R.
is not believed to be conclusive proof
that such a road is not already pro
jected. Every Indication points to tho
early construction of the Pug-et Sound
extension of the Union PacIQc system.
BIG INCORPORATION IS 3IADE
Company Formed for Building Oper
e rations for United Railways.
Articles of incorporation of the "Los An
geles Railroad Construction Company
were filed yesterday at Salem, tho capital
stock being named at $3,000,000. Tho in
corporators are' M. H. French, K. J. How
ard and W. It. Gould, men. Identified with
the United Railways Company, a combi
nation of Los Angeles capital lately
formed in Portland.
The objects of the new company, as
given in the articles of incorporation, are
to engage generally in the construction
of telegraph and telephone lines, railroads,
etc. The principal office -will be in Port
land. Officers of the new company already
chosen are M. H. French, president, and
Arthur G. Coombs, secretary and treas
urer. Mr. French Is in charge of the con
struction -work of tho United Railways
Company, and is said to hai;e more lines
of electric railways In California to nis
credit than any other railroad builder in
that state. Mr. Coombs has.for iho last
ten years, been manager of the firm of
Gray Bros., of San Francisco, manufact
urers of artificial stone pavements.
E. J. Howard, one of the incorporators,
is a wealthy brewer of Erie. Pa. W. It.
Gould, the third named In the articles of
Incorporation, Is an employe of the UiItod
Railways Company, in the auditing de
partment. The Los Angeles Railroad Construction
Company is the second $3,090,000 corpora
tion formed by the group of Los Angeles
capitalists who came to Portland a few
weeks ago to invest heavily In property
here. The latest organization will do the
construction work for the United Rail
ways Company. During , the intervals of
building huge combinations of capital the
backers of the United Railways project
buy and lease prominent business blocks
of Portland. Saturday they bought the
Chamber of Commerce, and yesterday
leased the Russell & Blyth building, at
Sixth and Ankeny, for five, years.
That the Los Angeles capitalists are to
become permanent Portland residents is
assured by the bringing here of thefr
wives and the purchase of residence prop
erty. Mrs. J. Whyte Evans, Mrs. Bcemla
Larrabee and Mrs. J. W. E. Taylor are
expected to arrive here from the south to
night, and Mrs. M. H. French and others
will reach here March L

he put it yesterday.
As the head of a fast llrelght ss'stem.
Mr. Wilson can give the far Western rail-
mads nolnters on freight-hauling. His
trains leave New Tork at night and reach
Chicago the third morning, making the
trip of nearly 1000 miles In CO hours. The
trains consist of CO cars at that, and haul
perishable freights and high-class mer
chandise. 3Ir. Wilson explains the time
by saying the speed is made because of
level tracks, with grades ana curves elim
inated to a great degree, while In the
West he finds trains climbing mountains
and swinging around abrupt curves. .
State to Be Paid for Roadway.
OLTMPIA. Wash.. Feb. 12. Special.)
The Attorney-GenerallB office was today
served with notice that February 28 the
Portland & Seattle Railway Company
would seek to condemn a right of way In
Klickitat and Skamania Counties across
the east half of lot 1 and the west half
of lot 2 of section 23. T. 3 N.. R. 10 E.
Assistant Attorney-General Booth has
rendered an opinion addressed to Highway
Commissioner J. M. Snow to the effect
that the state has prior right to Its loca
tion of a roadway across the Cowlitz
Pass and Snoqualmle Pass. The question
arose on account of the attempt to secure
the state highway for a railroad right of
way. The opinion oi me Aitomey-vrunerai
Ik to the effect that if the portion sought
by the Tailroads Is through a pass or defile
it can be appropriated by the railroad, but
only oy paying the state for It.

Edward Cooklngham. of Portland, presi
dent of the Tacoma Eastern Railroad
Company, admitted today that Udeland
block 23. formerly owned by his road, has
been sold. President Cooklngham said
there was no Immediate change to be
made In his road's terminal. He stated
however, that the Tacoma Eastern is pre
paring to build two additional tracks on
Its right of way. and that more tracks
would be built In the gulch yard as they
The fact that block 23 Is a part of the
tract of tldelands which the Union Pa

the two roads arc allied.

The vessel was constructed less than

There are two classes of remedies: those of known qual
ity and which are permanently beneficial in effect, acting
gently, in harmony with nature, when nature needs assist
ance; and another class, composed of preparations of
unknown, uncertain and inferior character, acting tempo
rarily, but injuriously, as a result of forcing the natural
functions unnecessarily. One of the most exceptional of
the remedies of known quality and excellence is the ever
pleasant Syrup of Figs, manufactured by the California
Fig Syrup Co., which represents the active principles of
plants, known to act most beneficially, in a pleasantsyrup,
in which the wholesome Californian blue figs are used to con
tribute their rich, yet delicate, fruity flavor. It is the remedy
of all remedies to sweeten and refresh and cleanse the system
gently and naturally, and to assist one in overcoming consti
pation and the many ills resulting therefrom. Its active princi
ples and quality are known to physicians generally, and the
remedy has therefore met with their approval, a well as with
the favor of many millions of well informed persons who know
of their own personal knowledge
tnatitis a most excellent laxative remedy. We do not claim that
it will cure all mariner of ills.but recommend it for what it really
represents, a, laxative remedy of known quality and excellence,
containing nothing of an objectionable or injurious character.

The evfl effects that follow many dis

in which these diseases leave the blood.
As a result, the flesh continues to fall

irritable, and even slight exertion causes
shortness of breath. These are danger

or day. The least little thing would
startle me. I had difficulty in breath
ing, had frequent fainting spells and
felt that every hour would be my last.
"My general health was completely
wrecked and I had neuralgic and rheu
matic pains, dyspepsia, constipation,
and f omnia weakness. My physician at
tended me tor the grip and again for
the condition that it left me in, but I
got no strength from the tonics he pre
scribed. In fact, nothing Jielped'me
until I tried Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
and they cured me.
I grew stronger and earned flesh
from the time I began taking them. I
am satisfied that the pills are all that is
claimed for them and X shall always do
all I can to make their good qualities
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are guaran
teed to be free from stimulating or harm
ful drugs of any description and may be
taken without fear or nrjury to the most
delicate system. They quickly cure ner
vous disorders of every kind, check
wastiug diseases and build up strength.
