THE MORXIXG OREGONIAN, "WEDNESDAY. NOVEMBER 11,
Wallowa Extension Part of
Water Haul to Portland
Along Snake River.
WORK IS DONE QUIETLY
Extensions Have Been Made With
Excuses for Local Traffic Can
Compete With North Bank on
Road Costing Much Less.
Behind the Invitation of the citizens
of Enterprise to the general officers
of the H.irrlman lines to attend a ban
quet In honor of the completion and
dedication of the road to Wallowa
tomorrow lies a story of quiet rail
roading that would dazzle even Jim
While Hill has been constructing the
North Bank road and thus attaining
an easy grade to the Pacific, the Har
rlman people have, at the same time,
and unknown to the public, been get
ting a water grade to Portland, -and
they will be In a position, when their
lines are completed, to handle the
"down-the-Columbia traffic Just as
easllv as the Hill line will. They will
have a down-grade route to the city.
The lines of the Harrlman system
which will form a part of the "down
grade" route have been under con
struction for some time, and it Is un
derstood that work upon them will be
continued throughout the Winter
More Than Was Made Known.
To the public these lines have been
known as the Wallowa & Snake
River extensions." On paper they ap
peared to be an outlet only for local
traffic. The Wallowa extension meant
slmnly the displacing by the railroad
of the stage line to Enterprise, the
nrlnclpal city In the county. Of course
the company would continue the line
to Joseph as a temporary terminus.
' There construction might stop. No
promises were made. The Snake River
line was moving ahead from Hunting
ton north. Its terminus was supposed
to be Homestead, the nearest outlet on
the Oregon side for the product of the
copper mines In the Seven Devils dis
trict of Idaho. The supposition was
easy of belief. A great number of
claims have been staked In the dls
trlct. many are working and a smelter
Is in operation. Nothing, it was
thought was more reasonable than to
believe that the Harrlman company
was building a freight line for the
transportation of copper.
Rut Harrlman was really doing no
such thing. He was and Is. according
to the most authentic Information
building the Snake River line from
Huntington to a connection at Lewis
ton and thus getting the benefit of the
down-river grade to Portland, giving
him an opportunity to compete win
the North Bank road on equal terms.
The Joseph terminal is an Illusion to
the neonle of Joseph. The line will
run right through that town to a
connection with the Snake River line
at a point northeast of Homestead. It
will, when completed, be equipped for
both freight and passenger service,
but Indications are that on through
service only freight will be handled.
Over the new road the grade will he
practically level. Leaving from the
point near Homestead, the trains will
pass by way of Joseph nnd Enterprise
into Lh Grande, and thus avoid the
unnecessary rlimh of the Blue moun
tains. The road will be longer, but the
handling of freight will be easier. In
passenger traffic there will be no
change In the system. The line from
Huntington to La Grande, although
having heavy grades, is the shortest
route for passenger service.
Costs Less Than North Bank.
The outwitting of Hill, credit for
which Is given to Oregon officers of
the Harrlman company, was the theme
of discussion on railroad row yester
The North Rank road cost Hill
about ;5.000.A0. or about 1100.000 a
mile, and a great part of the sum was
spent for right-of-way." said a rail
road man. "The Harrlman people built
and are butldtng without saying a
word, and the cost of all their river
grade line and feeders will not approxi
mate one fourth of that amount."
Just when the Pnake River and Jo
seph lines will be completed is not
known, but It Is said that they will be
ready for traffic early In the Spring.
At the Harrlman offices Information
about the lines was refused.
The banquet at Enterprise, from
which "the story of the river-grade
road emanated, will be given by the
citizens of that town to the Harrlman
officials of the Northwest tomorrow
right. It will be attended by General
Manager O'Brien. General Passenger
Agent McMurray. Assistant General
Tassenger Agent Scott. R. B. Miller,
general freight agent, and a number
of other officers of the company. They
will leave Portland this morning and
will return about Friday.
TOTAL COST IS FTGIRED
i:xrene of Slaking Ylllriurg Cut
off Will Be $911,314.37.
Officials of the Harrlman line have
figured the total cost of the Beaverton
Willsburg cutoff and changes in the
Yamhill division at 311.J14.37. Of this
sum 214.e4.37 has already been expended
In the purchase of the right of way and
or bridge materials and for the grad
ing of the new lines. The total length
of the cutoff will be about 10.17 miles.
Including the high bridge over the Wil
lamette at Oswego. The, cutoff Involves
a change of 5.3 miles In the Yamhill di
The new line, when completed, will be
of gret h-nefit to the South Portland
lumber mills. At present these mills
have to make their Eastern shipments
by way of Lafayette. 47 miles south, and
thence back to Portland In order to reacn
their markets. While their rate do not
differ materially from those of the Port
land mills, their cars are subjected to a
'great many delays. On the projected
Toad there will be only a 12-mlle haul
to Oswego and back.

From reports received from surveyors.
General Manager O'Brien, of the Har
rlman lines In the Northm-est. believes
that the work of construction on the
extension Into Central Oregon will he
begun by January 1. The total length
of the nem line will be about 110 or 115

of the Southern Pacific Company's road

protest. After considering the matter
an hour the Board -oted to install the
barn, but agreed to remove it if I,

Mr. Rushlight and tne members of the

put the stable in the new bundling,
and that it will be a nuisance to the

The plans for the new passenger depot of the Southern Pacific Kallroad Company, to be erected at East Firs --"
East Morrison streets, have been completed. It will be of concrete construction, the foundation will rest on piling,
and there will be reinforced concrete floors and imitation tile roof. The main building will be 124 by 30 feet, with
porches at both ends, each 20 by 30 feet The Interior arrangement will be strictly up-to-date, and divided into
waiting-room 28 by 4! feet, ticket office 12 by 15 feet, and smoking-room 10 by 10 feet. There will also be a rest
room for women. 10 by 10 feet. For the Interior finish of the waiting-room there will be tile wainscoting 5 feet

stain and- varnish. The floor will be of concrete, with cement finish. The building will be heated with hot air. elec
trically lighted throughout, and thoroughly modem. Authority for the work has been given, and specifications are
now betng prepared. The total cost of the structure, ready for acceptance, including cement walks, filling, etc., will
be about $18,000.
The Importance of this depot is Increased by the fact that the Southern Pacific Company has given orders to
resume work on the rroposed railroad bridge across the Willamette River at Milwaukle and Oswego. This will
bring both the West Side and East Side lines into Portland through the East Side.

LITTLE DANGER FROM RATS
Health Authorities Withdraw Strin
gent Rules Regarding Vessels.
Portland harbor Is now considered free
from danger of spread of contagious dis
ease from coastwise vessels touching at
thts port. Harbormaster Speier and
Health-Officer Pohl will recommend to the
Executive Board today that the restric
tions now imposed on vessels, coastwise,
be rescinded, and that they be allowed
to dock without the ten-foot standoff
and without rat funnels on lines.
This change in existing rules will not
apply to deep water vessels, but will ap
ply to ships entering this port from har
bors along the Pacific Coast. There is
still danger of communication of disease
from Oriental ports through rats that
come ashore from vessels, and these will
be required to moor at the ten-foot limit
and have their lines protected with rat
funnels, as heretofore.

Since its discovery one year ago,
poslam, the new skin remedy, has. In
its extraordinary accomplishments, ex
ceeded the most sanguine expectations
of the eminent specialist who gave it
to the world. It has cured thousands of
cases of eczema and eradicated facial
and other disfigurements of years'
standing. The terrible itthing attend
ing eczema Is stopped with the first ap
plication, giving proof of its curative
properties at the very outset.
In less serious skin affections, such
as pimples, rash, herpes, blackheads,
acne, barber'3 itch, etc., results show
after an overnight application, only a
small quantity being required to effect
a cure. Those who ase poslam for these
minor skin troubles can now avail
