Portland, July 18. What is be
lieved to have been the greatest Im
migration of Its kind into tho Pa
cific Northwest has been accomplish
ed by James J. Hill In bringing in
workmen on tho Portland & Seattle
railway construction from St. Paul
and the eastern centers. Employ
ment agents estimate on a conser
vative basis that 40,000 workmen
have been Imported to this territory
since work on the North Bank road
This great movement has been ac
complished by offering free faro to
the Pacific coast. The object of
course was to fill the construction
camps along tho Columbia, and tho
only reason that the Hill lines have
kept the invitation standing and so
many have been brought west is that
the men desert after working a time,
changing to some other line of in
dustry. However, many drift back
to tho railroad work from timfc to
time, and it is estimated that be
tween 4,000 and 6,000 are now at
work throwing dirt on the North

management of tho Portland & Seat-
