call h seen for several mile along the

"Last fall," said a visitor this week
at the Independent office, "I saw
President C. 8. Mellen, of the North
Puclllc railroad, at St.' Paul. In the
course of conversation he said that
the O. R. & N. surveyors would stop
work In the Clearwater county within
a week. I came on across and saw
those surveyors get on the train be
yond Wella Walla. To me this was
evidence that the Northern Pacific has
an Influence that can control the O. R.
k N., hence when the N. P. demanded
that work stop on the extension Into
tl-.o Clearwater country I waa not sur-
prlesd." Our visitor stated that the .
Clearwater country belongs to the N.
P. because that company first built
there, although Mellvn's .company may
not own much O. 9t N. stoek, 41 has
an Influence that can be extended to
protect Its own territory. It I this
power exerted by the N. P.. that fixes
the basis rate for carrying freight so
that It mak s a profit by pulling wheat
over the Cascades Into Seattle and Ta-.
coma, while It compels the O. R. A N.
t charge the. same rate to Portland,:
notwithstanding the latter city Is one
hundred miles nearer the wheat fields
and has a down-grade all the way. The
O. R & N. ought to deliver wheat at
Portland for one and one-half dollars
per ton less than the N. P. does ati
