SALE! LIE'S GOAL
Willamette Valley Southern
to Push Farther.
WAY RIGHTS ARE SOUGHT
President Dimick Says' Hoad tb
Build Soutlrvvard AVhe It Is
Tajing and People Grant
Land for Trackage.
OREGON CITY. Or.. April 16. (Spe
cial.) Salem is the goal of the Wil
lamette Valley Southern.
This was the announcement by Judge
Grant B. Eimick, president of the road.
He added that the line may even go be
yond the capital city, but all such plans
To things are awaited before the
construction df the extension of the
road beyond Mount Angel, the present
terminus, can begin. When the Port
land Railway, I-ight & Power Companv
approved the J3.0U0.OOO bond issue of
the Willamette Valley Southern, the re
striction was made .that the line could
not be built past the Marlon County
town until the road was on a paying
basis. Judge Dimick believes that this
point will be reached about October.
The other thing is tho co-operation of
people between Mount Angel and Salem.
The company will not ask that sub
scriptions either to bonds or stocks be
taken, but it will be expected that
rights of way will be granted.
Money foe Work In Hand,
The money for the extension is al
ready In. sight. About a year ago the
Portland Railway, Mfrht & Power Com
pany approved a ?3, 000,000 bond Issue,
so that there will be no difficulty when
the time comes to market the bonds. Of
the total sum. $650,000 of the issue has
been sold, which was cnouprh to cor
plete the work to Mount Ansel. The
rest of the issue will he use in con
struction down the Valley.
Construction of the extension from
Mount Ansel may begin early in the
Kail, aceording to Judge IMmick. -The
onlv rioint that can delay the work. In
his opinion. Is trouble in obtaining
rights of way. The definite route has
not been made public.
The construction of the line to Bea
ver Creek represents the most expen
sive work of the entire route to' Salem.
The country east and southeast of
Oregon. City Js cut with. -gullies and
many creeks. One trestle is almost 800
feet long and more than 200 feet high
and there are several cuts containing
several thousand cubic yards. Through

there the construction problems are
