TENINO GUT-OFF TO
EE USED IN MONTH
Northern Pacific Officials
Headed by W. P. Clough
on Inspection Tour.
PARTY STOPS IN PORTLAND
Business Outlook. Satisfactory, Say
Members Chief Interest Is in
Improvement to Reduce Run
ning Time to Sound.
Traing on the Northern Pacific main
line between Portland and Seattle will
be operating over the new Tacoma-
Tenino cut-off and through the Point
Defiance tunnel under the City of Ta
coma within a month, according to
the chief executive and operating offl
clals of the Northern Pacific, who
were in Portland for a few hours
The party, which was headed by
Colonel w. P. Clough, chairman of
the board, and Jule II. Hannaford,
president of the road, left Portland at
11 o'clock In the morning on a spe
cial train to view the new double track
line between Portland and Tenino by
daylight. Besides Colonel Clough and
President Hannaford, the party in
cluded George T. Slade, vice-president
in charge of operation; E. C. Blanchard,
of Tacoma, general manager of the
Western district: I. B. Richards, of
Tacoma, general superintendent; Hazen
J. Titus, dining-car superintendent;
Judge George T. Reid. of Tacoma, as
sistant to the president, and W. C.
Albee, general Western counsel.
Final Inspection Planned.
This is the period of the year when
railroad officials make final inspections
of their proprty. prior to reporting
conditions at the annual directors
meetings, which usually are held in
January. That is the purpose of the
Northern Paciiic party s trip over the
lines. The travelers left St. Paul,
Minn., in a special train last Friday
night and came direct to Portland. A.
I. Charlton, assistant general pas
senger agent, and F. H. Fogarty, as
sistant general freight agent, met them
"Business - conditions have not
changed much in the last few months,"
commented Colonel Clough. "I am
sure that they have grown no worse
and in some places I understand they
have grown better. There is nothing
that we have to be afraid of right now.
And if this European war ever clears
up, we will be on the fair road to
Crop Movements Normal.
Mr. Hannaford reported that the crop
mevemenw'on the Northern Pacific
have been up to normal this year. On
account of the war, he says, much
grain still remains in the warehouses.
The fruit has not all moved yet,
either, he says. On account of depres
sion in the lumber market business on
the western end of the line is not up
to normal, but as a whole the North
ern Pacific is showing good earnings.
It probably will pay its usual dividends
through the remainder of the fiscal
year. The vlcitors were more in
terested in the progress of the work
on the new Tacoma-Tenino line than
they were In crops and finances.
Work between Tacoma and Tenino
haa been under way through the past
.Summer under the direction of Porter
Bros., railroa-J contractors, of Port
land. This projei- has been in course
of development for nearly six years and
finally is nearing completion after an
expenditure of more than $10,000,000.
This item does not include the cost of
double tracking between Vancouver,
Wash., and Tenino.
Double Tracks to Be Complete.
When the new line Is opened the
Northern Pacific will have a complete
oouoie-tracK system between Portland
and Seattle. Both the Great Northern
and O.-W. R. & N. Co. will use theBe
The new line will greatly reduce the
grades and curvature between Tacoma
and Tenino, and will make possible a
reduction in the running time of pas
senger trains between Portland and the
Sound. Two and one-half miles will
be added, however, to the distance be
tween Tortland and Tacoma. It will
eliminate the heavy grade in the City
of Tacoma and some of the dangerous
grade crossings there.
The new tunnel, which pierces the
flint-like obstruction of Point De
fiance, is 4400 feet long and double
tracked all the 'way.
The improvements will make it pos
sible to haul heavier freight trains
and to operate faster passenger trains.
On account of the anticipated increase
in travel to the San Francisco Fair
next year, the Northern Pacific officials
are eager to have the line in opera
tion to handle that business.
Colonel Clough. Mr. Hannaford and
Mr. Slade will travel more leisurely on
their eastward trip. They will In
spect the line changes in progress in
the Cascade Mountains and will visit
the principal cities and division points
between Puget ound and St. Paul,

In Its chief essentials, the trend of the
market was accepted as a natural one under
existinr circumstances. There was no con

dealings somo issues were not obtainable to
sell at minimum prices. This resulted In
Kegular Quotations for call and time loans
were resumed on the exchange. The open
Ine rate for call money was 5 per cent, but
the abundant supply soon caused a fall to

months were negotiated at a 4 per cent
rate, and a number of 5 per cent contracts,
expiring tomorrow, were renewed on the
first named basis.
Some foreign sales were submitted to the

ter inquiry for medium grades during the
past week and values for these descriptions
have a rather tinner tendency.

Is being paid to the medium quality hops
and several parcels have been taken during
the last few days. Choice hops are still in
request, but very few remain on the market.
Worcester Trade continues good and Is
sufficient to maintain prices, as supplies are
now In fewer handa So-.ne holders are more
disposed to wait. Cnoice qualities and
