The list of deceased pioneers is, of course, much larger than this, but their names are not made a part of the records of the association because they were never members, and hence the secretary his no data relating to them: J.

An exodus of prominent railroad officials from Portland has been the feature of the-week in traffic circles. It is exceed ingly rare that so many of the prominent railroad men whose headquarters are lo cated In this city are absent at the same time, and the circumstance has created a great deal of comment along Third street, where the railroad offices are lo cated. Of the higher railroad officials General Passenger Agent A. I. Craig, of the O. R. & N., Is now in Chicago, attending a meeting of the Transcontinental Passen ger Association, and looking after other details of railroad work. He has been ab sent for a week, and is not expected to return until July 1. Somewhat of a coincidence Is the fact that Allen Cameron. Asiatic representa tive of the O. R. & N. and Portland & Asiatic Steamship Line, came "West from Chicago about the time Mr. Craig left FLOWING" UP ALDER STREET THE START. not come into personal touch with the pioneers before for 20 years. He is look ing forward to the reunion with great pleasure, and anticipates having a very pleasant time in recounting Oregon ecenes and experiences of the days long past. Among other things he Indulged In some regrets, as he spent a little time with Secretary Hlmes at pioneer headquarters In the City Hall. Soon after his arrival he established a sawmill on the Clackamas and rafted the lumber, which was used in the construction of some of the first frame houses In Portland, for which he received $150 per thousand. His conscience J does not sting him for that, however; but he is sorely .trpubled when Jie recalls the fact that he was at one time offered 160 acres of land, now in the heart of this city, for 5000 feet of lumber. Mr. Simpson's conscience troubled him a good many years ago becauee he let that op portunity slip; but now, as he sees pres ent conditions, with the future prospects in store, after an absence of a score of years, he is more sorely distressed in mind than ever. Mr. SImpeon was born in Tennessee in 1S18, and hence is now in his 86th year, but aside from somewhat impaired sight he is in good condition to survive a good many years. Henceforth he will make his home in Oregon, sd that those still living who knew him years ago will have the opportunity to renew their acquaintance. Another stout old octogenarian, F. X. Matthicu, also in his SCth year, and who came In 1842, registered yesterday. His wonted health has returned, after a some what discouraging period of Illness two months ago, and he is now as genial as ever. The secretary would again urge upon resident pioneers the, necessity of securlng thelr badges before tlie last hour, so as avoid the rush, which inevitably takes piace, ween it is put off to the last:" moment- Anyone who came to, or was1' born in. Oregon prior to February 14, 1S59, is ellgiblle to membership; A considerable number of those already enrolled never were members of the association before. Committees on the Banquet.

Mlnto, Mesdames Bessie M. Teal, L W Pratt, Henrietta Falling, Louise Myrlck and Harriet B. Killin. The question regarding eligibility to membership arose. Mr. Minto moved, that as during the past year no effort had been made to increase the membership the board of directors be authorized to appoint a committee of three to solicit subscriptions during the coming year, and that the charter membership list be kept open and the membership fee of $1 be un changed. The board of directors appointed Mesdames E, D. Hamilton and C. N. Mc Arthur and George H. Hlmes as mem bers of tho soliciting committee. Tho society will make an effort during the coming year to increase its member ship. At the present time but few of the eons of pioneers are members, the greater part of the membership being made up of tho daughters of the old settlers. Pacific Monthly for June. Portland's pet periodical, the Pacific Monthly, for June, Is a beautiful publica tion from the printer's and illustrator's standpoint, and the character of its read ing matter maintains the standard eet by it in the past. The special features are "Springtime in the Willamette Aralley" and "The Counties of tho Willamette," two articles descriptive of Oregon's gar den spot. These articles are profusely illustrated with halftones. The monthly Is growing In circulation and influence, and is a publication of which Portland may. well feel proud.

There have been under discussion for some time propositions for the reduction of freight tariffs to Coast points in line with the efforts of freight agents to en courage the movement of Eastern prod ucts to the Coast. These matters are of particular interest to Portland and other Northwest points, and Mr. Fulton is in the East to see that the Northwest, as well as his road, receives fair treatment- W. E. Coman, general passenger agent of the Southern Pacific, and Gen eral Manager Richard Koehler, of the same line, are out on the road. Mr. Koehler is absent on his regular Inspec tion trip, and Mr. Coman is visiting rep resentatives of the road to check up traf fie matters. M. J.

GREAT RAJLROAD FOR CANADA. Grand Tronic Is Now Certain to Build to the Pacific Coast. NEW YORK. Jupe 13. Sir Charles" hir ers Wilson, president of the Grand Trunk Railroad, -who sailed for Europe t today, says regarding the. proposed extension of the Grand Trunk .Lines through the .Dp minion of Canada to the Pacific Coast, to cost $75,000,0007 is now practically assured of success.. iThe enabling bill -which -will be the charter of the new road, has passed through all the committees of the Cana dian Parliament, and Is about to be ad vanced to the third reading In the House of Commons at Ottawa. .This charter provides for the organiza tion of a s'eparate company to He known as the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway with a capital of 575,000,000. Under this char ter there wiU he built a line 3SG0 miles long, extending' from ' Quebec to Port Simpson, on the Pacific Ocean, with sev eral branches.

Rocky Mountain sections It will take r Hall, and a campflre will, be held Thurs- over nve years to complete the entire project. The new route will provide the shortest line between London and the Orient,, and it will also shorten the distance between many United States points and the Orient, as Port Simpson Is about 550 miles nearer the ports of China, Vladivostok and Ma nila than Vancouver or Seattle or Port land, and about 600 miles nearer than San Francisco, while It 13 no further away than these ports from Hawaii, Australia and other Important South Sea ports. From Liverpool the distance" to Yokohama will be 310 miles less than by the nearest existing line, and 1202 miles less than via New Tork and Vancouver. It will even be shorter than by the trans-Siberian Railroad.

The Great Northern Jlnes are shown In red, th Northern Pa cific in green and tho Burlington in black. Projected lines are shown In detail, one of the most Important being the Great Northern's proposed line to Oka, Mont., and the Burlington's extension from Bil lings to connect with the Hill system at that point.
