R. F. Baker end j. T. Plant, the
committee appointed by the Mayor
to go to Portland to confer with
the Portland West Coast and Nav
igation company, in regard to grant
ing that company a franchise for
fifty years, if the company would
build a railroad to Newport within
the next four years. The com
mittee met with the officials of that
company and after a thorough in
vestigation of the standing of the
company and their ability t o build
the road within the time specified,
it was decided to give the franchise,
which was done. The road is to be
completed and cars running to New
port within four years. The com
mittee d'd a good deal of hard
work and took, great pains in seeing
that all the interests of Newnort
were protected in. the matter.
When this road is built to Newport
it will shorten the distance about
one half, or in other words, a train
leaving Portland at 4 p. m. would
. arrive at Newport the same even
ing at 8:30. The . distance is 117
miles. The company who .is to
' build the road is composed almost
entirely of capitalists from the East,
so they will not be under any obli
gations to anyone living in Oregon.
This is a good point as we have
learned by sad experience. The
time saved in going over this route
between San Francisco and Portland
