As It Is now, these merchants have

Rumor of Electric Line Out.
ASTORIA. June 1. (Special) Tha
presence of a large number of railroad
surveyors tn the lower Columbia River
district Is the cause of much specula
tion. There are at the present time Ave
ganga of engineers comprising a total
of over 10 men at work along the line
of the half circle, beginning here. Two
of these parttea, the one at the Humbug
and one on the ridge between the
Humbug and Necanlcum rivers, are
known to be In the employ of the
Harrlman Intereata and are unques
tionably aeeklng the beet grade for a
road from connection with the Lytle
Una at Buxton via the Nehalem Valley
and either the Iwls and Clark or Ne
canlcum rlvera to Astoria and the
beaches. Who the other surveying
partlea repreaent la not yet definitely
One party, consisting of 16 men, went
to work last Tuesday about 1 miles
below Heaslde, while two other gangs
are running a preliminary line between
here and Seaside. One of these Is In
the neighborhood of the Josiah West
ranch on Clatsop plains, while the other
la working at the C. 8. Brown place,
and a third party is to be placed In
the Held within the coming few days.
These three partlea and the one below
Seaside are sstd to ba under the super
vision of T. Walte, sn engineer who is
reported to have been Identified for
years with the engineering departments
of the Great Northern and Northern
Pacific railways.
This fact, coupled with the further
assertion that one of the engineers In
charge was In consultation with Presi
dent Young and the other officials of
the Spokane. Portland A Seattle Rail
road during their recent Visit to Sea
side, has given rise to the belief that
the North Bank line is arranging to
shift Its line from Wsrrenton south
closer to the beach and to also extend
the road to Tillamook and down the
coast. Another current report la that
all the aurveyora are employed by the
Soutbern Pacific, while still another Is
that tha ones who are running the
lines for the proposed electric rond to
Seaside sre tn the employ of the "Dun
dee" Hold Interests. Tha latter report
Is given credence In some circles for
the reason that some of the engineers
are known to have formerly been con
nected with the Keld projects and also
because of the transfer recently of tha
title to the Lewla and Clark River
railroad grade from one Reld company
to another.
