THE STATIC ItOAI) AGAIN'.
Probably no wiser proposition for
Ijproviding Oregon with railroad facil
ities can be conceived than the one
which involves the location and con
struction of a rallroaa through Cen
tral Oregon by the state, and the
leasing of the roadbed and tracks to
other railroad companies. Oregon
ihas waited for these coveted rail
roads to be built through private in
itiative. She has received nothing
tout jolts and promises. If she
should build a road to Central Ore
gon, both from Portland and Coos
-Bay, and then east to Vale, she
"would have every railroad company
In the United States scampering to
occupy her territory. Such a road
"would co3t somewhere iu the neigh
borhood of $12,000,000. No doubt
$4,000,000 of tho bonds could be
placed in Oregon and it is very prob
able that $2,000,000 or $3,000,000
could be added by the sale of town
sites along the line. It is also more
-than likely that the right of way
could be acquired without the in
vestment of much capital. Illustrat
ing the method of disposing of state
bonds for such a purpose, it may be
said that no doubt, in order to ad
vance tho building of such a road
Coos Bay cities would easily take
;300,000 of the bonds, Coqullle and
aiyrUo Point $150,000, Roseburg
250,000, while Portland and cities
south and in tho Interior could and
"would take very much laiger sums.
Kor would the bond Investments be
Host. Railroad bonds issued by the
tale would bo gilt edged and the
.railroad built would be an asset
Svhirh the stato could sell at any
time, if she desired, for a large ad
vance on the cost of construction.
"What opposition can 'such a
proportion meet? First and most
Wlcious of tho forms of opposition is
ndirrorencD.- If the people have no
capacity for cooperative action in
uch a cause they will fall to act.
The next feature of opposition would
5c tho selfishness of certain locali
ties which would oppose their own
.-advantago and happiness rather than
sce aay other locality prosperous.
The next feature of opposition would
Sir tho opposition of railroad coro
'.patfles. These would endeavor to
nircJinse the state press to clamor
against tho construction of a stato
Toad. Then, too, there are nows
Jpapers which can bo bought body
ana ioal by simply giving an annual
"pans or Its equivalent to tho manag
Snsj twlltor. Party stupidity and
prejudice might also mako an out
cry against a state railroad of tho
Itiinl mentioned, for party stupidity
wia prejudlco Is often ready to sacri
fice tho prosperity of a stato rathor
ttlmn relax its hypocritical claims
inA its "hopes for office. Tho survey
and location of such a road would
fcost In tho neighborhood of $100,
O00. While then) may bo stretches

tho country for tho most part is
Covol, and oxports stato that it would

tho average Every commercial
V)ody In on tho coast and interior
eStIos and 'towns should appoint com-
anltluoB to confer with ono another
on this subject, and it is understood
'that tho project Is taking form and
that active efforts will soon bo com-
'Jnoncpd to interest tho electorato of
tho stato in such a plan.
an extensive water front Indeed it
is stated that she has twice tho
amount df water frontage docks as
London, the latter being admittedly
the greatest port in tho world. Now
New York City, whoso business and
commercial transactions are continu
ally expanding, purposes to still fur
ther enlarge her harbor facilities.
Some 9000 acres of land around
what is known as Jamaica Bay, a
few miles from New York City, on
Long Island, are to be purchased at
a cost of $30,000,000, and it is de
signed to expend some $27,000,000
draining and walling the property,
and $50,000,000 for building docks
and warehouses. Somo idea can be
thus collected as to tho extent to
which capitalists are willing to go
for the purpose of providing harbor
facilities. When it is considered
that Puget Sound, Coos Bay and San
Francisco are tho only available na
tional deep sea harbors on tho Pa
cific Coast, the future of Coos Bay
cannot but be ono of great and in
