HILL ROAD MAY COME
i'ho prediction has frequently been
made that James J, Hill would enter
the Central Oregon field, and through i
get into San trancieco, to break the
Han i man monopoly on the transporta
tion of that rich territory. The latest
rumor to-gain circulation is the follow
ing, published in the Albany Herald.
The HeraUl saysr Parties arriving in
Albany frdni Nuwport rettort that
surveying party oi z-i men arrived in
Newport Tuesday, having worked their
way Kjuthward along the coast lino
from Astoria. The surveyors are in the
employ of the Astoria and Columbia
Hiver road, and llio cngineeY in charge
of the party stated In answer to in
quiries that ho was under instructions
to go back over the survey nt once and
set the grade stakes.
rrom me arrival or tins surveying
party in Newport it would pcem that the-
Northern Pacific interests have not
eeaced the work of surveying the ex ten
sion of the protKiscd coast line, as tlici
Portland papers reported a short time
ago but that the line will be extended as
The party has been proceeding slow-
y and doing a caroful'jobof engineerinc.
They are said to lie 'working under or
ders for strict secrecy and all haste com-
tible with a complete aurvuv of a
first-class railroad line. It is believed,
that the Northern Pacific is making ail
preparations to rush the building of a
road from Astoria to Yaquiun Lay, and
lossibly from that ioint to the cast-
ward, crossing the Coast and Cascade
ranges and meeting the construction of
a line up the Deschutes river to Central
Oregon. This plan has been retorted
before, and it ia thought to be n rough
outline of the Hill scheme to break the
present Harri man monopoly of railroad
transportation in Oregon.
It would surprise nobody familiar with
Hill's railroad policy to hear that he"
waa determined to extend the Northern
Pacific to San Francisco in return for
the Harrimaii extension of the Southern
Pacific to Puget Sound.
