This presents a situation not entirely

that ! electrification can be complet

Mr. Campbell, together with Ralph

Pacific, and Krank L. Burckhalter. su
perintendent, will leare the latter part
cf the week for a trip orer the new
Cooe Bay line. They will Inspect the
work now in progress and Tlew plans
for future construction. Mr. Campbell
believes that the Coos Bay line will be
completed and ready for operation
early next May.
While In San Francisco Mr. Campbell
eld conferences) with representatives
of the engineers, firemen, conductors
and trainmen employed on the Southern
Pacific to settle rarloua minor local
disputes of the employes with the com
pany. All these affairs, he reports,
were amicably adjusted.
He also was called to Chicago soon
after leaving Portland to attend an
other meeting between the representa
tive of the Western railroads and the
engineers and firemen who hava been
negotiating on wage questions for
more than a year.
The differences finally were settled
py a board of arbitration, but it seems
that the board's findings were not
precisely understood by either side. In
some particulars. It waa decided at
the recent Chicago conference to call
the board together again to Interpret
Bareaa to Be. Abolished.
One of the first questions of Im
portance considered by Mr. Campbell
upon his return to hie office yesterday
was the action of the Northern Pacific
and the Milwaukee railroads In with
drawing from the Northwestern demur
rage bureau. Their action followed
previous action of the Oreat Northern
railroad and left the Southern Pacific
and the O.-W. R. N. Company alone
as members of the bureau.
It was virtually decided yesterday
by Mr. Campbell and M. J. Buckley,
general superintendent of the O.-W. R.
A N. Company, to abolish the bureau
and to close the offices which have
been maintained In Seattle.
It Is probable that the Southern
Pacific will handle Its Oregon demur
rage cases through Its San Francisco
office and that the O.-w. 11. t N. Com
pany will handle Its demurrages
through Its car service bureau.

Muddiest ot Rivers.
New York Sun.
The Missouri River is the muddiest
river in the Mississippi Valley; it car
ries more silt than any other large
river In the United States except pos
sibly the Rio Grande and the Colorado.
For every square mile of country
drained it carries downstream 1181 tons
of dissolved and suspended matter each
year. In ether words, according to the
United States Geological Purvey, the
river gathers annually from the coun
try that It drains more than 123,000,000
tons of silt and soluble matter, some
of which it distributes over the flood
plains below to form productive ag
ricultural lands, hut most of which
finds Its' way at last to the Gulf of
Mexico. It is by 'tnoans of data of
this kind that geologists compute the
rate at which the lands are being
eroded away. - .
It has. been shown that the Missouri
River is lowering the surface of 1.he
land drained by it at a rate of one
foot in 036 years. The surface of
the United States as a whole is now
being worn down at the rate of one
foot in 8120 years.- It has been es
timated that if this erosive action of
the streams of the United States could
have been concentrated on the Isth
