themselves in the job have done the
work well, and the exhibit should

PRETTV GIRLS ELOPE
FROM DENVER; CAUGHT.
Tho suggestion in a recent issue of
The Times that the people of Oregon
cease depending upon tho Southern
Pacific or other railroads- for new
roads to tap Isolated sections of the
state and invoke the initiative and
referendum and build their own rail
roads, finds a reflectlpn in Tho Ore
gonian of November 3, as follows:
"(To the Editor.) Tho need of
Oregon today is more railroad trans
portation facilities. If wo need these
why don't wo have them? Because
We have been robbed of our rights.
Our industries have been crippled,
our finances disturbed, and our op
portunities stolon by tho railroad
"It Is tho same old tale of the
spider and the fly. We are the fly.
We are shut in, surrounded, locked
up by a mass of paper railroads,
which in the eyes of our law have all
the rights of an engine and train of
cars, but which carry no freight for
us, and haul no passengers. There
Is not a mountain pass or a strategic
point through which the railroad
trust has not 'located' a lino, and Its
dummy board of directors 'adont It
and hencoforth it is their property.
No one elso can build there. The
'adopted line' shuts out all nroeress.
all hopes of the people.
"The railroad trust feeds them by
promises of deceit by keeping their
engineers stirring about the country.
But they neither build railroads
themselves, or let any one else do so.
"Tho remedy for this evil Is In the
hands of the people. It is very sim
ple. Let us use the Initiative and ref
erendum, and have our Legislature
enact a law making all locations for
railroads void of all possessory rights
except where acual work of construc
tion Is begun within one year thereof,
and continuously carried forward to
completion and actual running of
trains for traffic. Then imaginary
railroads will disappear.
"The fear seems prevalent that we
can have no railroads unless tho rail
road kings of the East build railroads
for us, and that wo must be very
careful not to anger them or they
wijl leave us out in the wilderness,
poor things! and give us no trans
portation, "Build your own railroads, people
of Oregon. You have the money and
the men of experience. There are no
roads like home roads to serve your
Interests. Portland has money
enough to build ronda reaching out
into all parts Of the state and Port
land euglners can furnish all talent
required to locate, build and operate
them. A dozen such railroads would
place this city ahead of all others on
the Pacific Coast, in ten years' time.
"First: destroy the sham railroads.
Second: build real ones of your
own. J, H. ABBOTT.
Foul dollars for the first hour
and reduced rates for a longer time.

Transportation office. A Btreot dock.
His automobile is for hire.
Pendleton, Nov. 5. That the re
trenchment policy of the O. R. & N.
Is something more than a mere short
ening of sail for the stormy winter
months is evidenced by the fact that
the entire force on the Umatilla Cen
tral has been discharged and con
struction tools and implements taken
away, even to surveyors' instruments.
With the grade completed and rails
within two miles of their destination
and but a few more days' work to bo
done, all building Is not only stopped
but completely abandoned.
As is the situation on the Umatilla
Central, so is the entire work under
the direction of Engineer H. A. Bran
don, in charge of Harrlman improve
ments in Eastern Oregon and Wash
ington, who has his headquarters In
this city. Work at Hilgard, La
Grande, Elgin, Huntington and at
every other place under Brandon's su
pervision where improvements were
in progress has been stopped and
forces discharged, and it Is estimated
that over 1000 men In Eastern Ore
gon and Washington have been put
out of employment.
Seattle, Wash., Nov. G. Bert Lus

rately dressed, are in the city jail and
two very pretty girls, Bertie Law
rence and Daisy Ackerman, will soon
be on their way back to Denver, from
where they eloped several days ago.
The two men may be charged with
enticing the girls away from homo
for immoral purposes. The four were
arrested by the police at the Federal
Hotel last night. There has been no
