AVI11 Connect I'rinevilie With
Eugene special: To build an elec
tric lino from Eugene to Springfield,
and thence along the McKenzIe river
to Prlnevllle; also branches from
Springfield to Wedling and from
Eugene to Corvallls, Is the outllner
of an enterprise made public yester
day through the filing of articled In
corporating the Eugene, & EadU.-rri
railroad company with a capitaliza
tion of $1,000,000.
The Incorporators are A. Welch
and E. W. Hall, of the Willamette
Valley company; F. W. Waters, for
mer mayor of Salem, and right-of-way
agent for the Willamette Vallry
Electric company, and James It.
Thompson and Charles A. Hardy of
Mr. AVelch Is absent from the city,
and Mr. Hall refused to give defall3
cf the plan, other than that the cor
poration is fully filnanced and the
persons interested include those
concerned in the Willamette Valley
company and other eastern capital
ists. The Willamette Valley compnnv
recently formed a merger of electric
properties throughout the northwesi
the plants at Eugene and Albany be
ing Included with those at Bsiker
City, Pondleton, Walla Walla, Spo
kano and other points. '
Outlet for Prlncville.
The company is building a local
line in Eugene, and construction is
about to start on the project to
Springfield, while surveyors have
been along the McKenzie river for
some time. The plan to connect
TrlnevIIle, in the heart of Crook
county, with the Willamette valley,
will prove another boom to isolated
central Oregon. The lino will cross
the Cascades In the vicinity of the
Three Sisters, and from streams en
route electric energy, for operation
is to be generated, ..
The line to Wendllng from Spring
field will bo in opposition to the
Southern Pacific, which already Is
operating over that route, while con
necting with Corvallls will give the
southern portion of the Willamette
valley transportation facilities that
will ultimately be joined wlth the
Oregon Electric at Albany, to which
point the Salem-Portland system Is
to bo extended.
When the Salem-Portland under
talcing was first announced It was
proposed to construct from Eugene
and possibly from Roseburg, but
with the transfer of the Oregon Elec
tric from the Willamette Valley to
the present stockholders, no Intention
was expressed of building south of
Albany. Mr. Welch entered the Eu
gene field, and the creation of the
Eugene & Eastern railway company
is the result.
At a meeting of the stockholders,
held in this city, the following of-
3re elected: A. Welch, presl-
kank "W. Waters, vice presi-
W. Hall, secretary-treasur-
IB. Thompson, constructing
A, Hardy, legal
power of her own streams. That's
something, isn't it, to use the power
now going to waste In our beautiful
McKenzIe, .Willamette and Sluslaw
rivers to saw down our trees by elec
trodes, haul the logs to the mill by
electric cars, cut tjiem up into lumber
by saws run by electric power nnd the
haul of the lumber to market over
electric railroads. It is no vlslonarv.
Utopian dream. It U a veritable
fact and there are plenty of men now
living, who will live long enough to
see these things In nctual operation.
In fact there is one branch of the
work the largest and most import
ant one in Its embryotic state now
and it will only be a short time until
It Is In actual operation.
On last Thursday at Portland, ar
ticles of Incorporation were entered
Into which Eugene will shortly be
put In touch with the eastern Oregon
country, will have a direct line to
Corvallls and possibly connection
with the Portland-Salem electric line
to the first mentioned place, giving
us competition with the Southern
Pacific and also abranch line from
Springfield up the Mohawk to Wend
llng. They have abundant capital be
hind them to go right ahead with
the work. In fact, that Is the least
of their bother just now. They want
to- go right ahead with the building
of It and the fact that the rails and
other supplies cannot bo secured at
once on account of the rolling mills
and steel works having so many or
ders ahead and there being so few
cars to carry their rails they are wor
ried only over delay. They are
anxious that business men and farm
ers give the matter their moral sup
port and aid all they can In secur
ing the right of way. Surveying par
ties are already In the field and more
will be put In at once.
