STORY OF OUTRAGE.
Real Gist of Unfavorable Railway Sen
timent in Oregon.
The steady and Increasing senti
ment n the State of Oregon to force
better treatment from the hand1 of
the railroads, Is simply the result of
the studied Indifference of the men
who control the means of transporta
tion to make even a feeble attempt to
care for the ever-Increasing traffic
tributary to their lines.
Take the Harrlman system In this
State, fo instance; the Indisputable
facts show that in 1897 the O. R. & N.
Company ha 109 locomotives; In 1908
they had 141, an Increase of 32. In
1897 tho company owned 2,829 freight
cars of all classes; In 1906 the com
pany had 147 less cars than they had
service In 1897, or a total of 2,682. The
cars at present In use, have, how
ever, a somewhat larger carrying ca
pacity. The freight earning capacity
Increased during this period 168 per
cent, while the equipment necessary
to carry the Increased traffic was In
creased only 13.2 per cent.
On the Oregon & California Rail
road no new equipment was ordered
In lfle.fi, It being asserted that the
equipment to operate Is furnished by
the Southern Pacific Company.
Not only has the Harrlman system
been negligent In the furnishing of
equipment, but they have deliberately
down In the face of public sentiment
and created a needless antipathy, for
which there are not palliating circum
stances. The law of retributive jus
tice is positive and Immutable. It is
Just as impossible to escape Its opera
tion as It Is to defy the law of grav
Southern Pacific Company has prob
ably furnished the most aggravated
case of total indifference to the rights
of the people ever exhibited by any
railroad In the Northwest. Other lines
may have been short of equipment, but
have never juggled their tariffs. The
Southern Pacific Company, after main
taining a rate lnvtolut for five vears
and encouraging the establishment of
lumbering industries along its line
in the Willamette Valley. without
practically a word of warning can
celed Its former rates and put In force
a tariff that was absolutely ruinous
and prohibitive, and withheld its cars
until many of Its patrons were brought
to the very verge of financial ruin,
while others were engulfed and lost
their entire Interests pending Its par
tial restoration. The old ruinous pol
icy of the Huntington regime and its
contempt for those who were unfor
tunate enough to be located along Its
lines, has been continued until the
present time, toa more or less de
gree. Men In local control may change
but Its inflexible policy of absorption
seems to be as immutable as the laws
of the Medes and Persians. At will It
declares embargoes on California busi
ness. The shippers are told to find
