or anything which they could secure on
credit. They would operate under the
name of some company well known In
the business world, and, In ordering
goods to the value of thousands of dol
lars, would gtve commercial agents

received the bogus company would
transfer the consignments to a ware
house and then ship them to New Tork
where they wer disposed -of through a
"fence" - which has baffled the Inspect

working all winter and summer across

river, finished their work Monday and
ytterd.iy left for Montana. The sur
vey strikes the river at the edt?e of the
government reserve at Fort Columbia
Instead of between here and Chinook,
as was weveral times announced would
be the terminus of the line.
It is now (he general opinion of the
citizens of this county that the North
ern Paclflc Intends beginning work on
the Hue before very long. The survey.
ors set the permanent grade stakes and j
this fact strengthens the belief that
the road Is to be built at once. It Is
the belief that the Une from the South j
Bend line o North Beach Is to be built
prior to the proposed line down thej
north bank of the Columbia which has I
been surveyed. The line will cross the j
famous Nasel'and Bear river timber i
belts which are heavily stocked with !
a Bne grade of fir timber. The road!
will come across to the river at Colum- j
bia and down the river to strike Ilwaco :
and tap North Beach to handle the
timber ofthe Intermediate territory
and passenger traffic to the beach. It
is a well-known fact In ra'lrood cir
cles that the Northarn Pacific contem
plated building this line years ago
when the line was built to Southland.
The coming on of the hard times stop
ped the line at South Ben 1 and nothing
until now has ben done toward reviv
ing the old project.. Business Is in
creasing In activity here as a result of
the prospect of the coming road.
