America's King of the Rail Will Try

E. H. Harriman, the largest Individual
controller of American railroads, sailed
a few days ago for Japan and tha Philip
pines, whither he had been preceded by
bis Industrial agents and engineers, who
are Instructed to report on oondltions tn
the Island of Luson with a view of en
abling Mr. Harriman to bid on railway
concessions 4whlch - Secretary . Taf t will
dispose of in - securing .construction ol

riman's avowed mlsaion:-'tt la said. Is a
purpose ' to buy control , of the private
railroads of Japan. J -t
The real Object of his trip has been
kept carefully concealed. - Only a few

of the war . between Japan and Russia

allv Japanese securities. At the same
time, Japan is in need of money. It Is
said her people are In. a mood to welcome
the influx of forelgnVeapitat and enter
prise, and particularly are they disposed
to extend the glad hand to Americana.
It has been decided by the Harriman
group of flnanclers. that now la the most
opportune time they will ever have for
getting tn- on tbs crest of the wave of
Japanese . progress."
. " ' . Sow '. They -Via
Their manner of getting In will be to
purchase a controlling Interest In the
1,160 miles- of various privately owned
railroad- lines In - the-' three principal
islands of ths Japanese empire.
The entire empire or Japan has about
100.000 square miles; Oregon has 04.500
square miles. Japan haa a total of 4.401
miles of government and private rail
roads, situated on ber three principal
islands. Oregon baa about 1.700 miles.
Mr. Harriman does not go to Japan
because- he lacks room for railroad ex
pansion and development-He.tsKsald

road Unas already built rather than con
struct line and open to business devel
opment the Isolated regions of Oregon.
Of the 4.40S miles of railroads in
Japan, 1,160 mfjea are In possession of
private corporations and Individuals.
There are three main systems, and many
smaller lines, and they connect the eitlee
of Toklo, Kobe, Oeaka, Shlmonosekl,
Kyoto, Sendai. Amori and many smaller
citlea and ports. Nearly all of this
mileage has been built stnee-lMO, The
government of Japan has encouraged In
every possible way the construction of
railroads, in some Instances guaranteeing
their revenues,
Japaasas Cloverasasnt's Policy Ze Uberal
Of the mileage built by the govern
ment 074 mllea haa been given over to
private companies, by approval of the
diet. About 400 miles of these gift roads
are In operation and the remainder under
construction. It Is demonstrated in
many ways that the Japanese govern
ment Is pursuing an extremely liberal
policy toward railroad promotera.
Thia policy has had the effect of en
hancing the values of Japaneee railroad
stocks. In ths stock market of Toklo
meet ef the-railroad securities are sell
ing above par. Stock of the oldest es
tablished road, the Nippon Ray-way com
pany, built between 1880 and 1800, has
a face value of 10 yen, and Is quoted on
the stock exchsnge at 88 yen. Soma of
the smaller companies' stock la below

the Harriman people to secure control of
all the smaller lines, and. dip Into- the
larger ones to an sxtant sufficient to
give them a commanding poeltlon.i Then
by Introducing Improved methods, and
gaining prestige with tha government
