the largest budget of this stork.'
eat e Wtu Be Benefited. ,
Of all ' transcontinental lines that
need an Oregon outlet. It Is declared
that the Atchison. Towka eV Santa Fe
would be most largely benefited by such
a line. - The Santa Fe has a mileage
of 11.000 miles' through a prairie coun
try, with -practically not a atica ox
timber. So long ss tnm situation con
tinues, the road must tske grist rrora
rtarriman'a mill. A coast Una Into Ore
gon would be of Immense financial bene
fit to tne Santa Fe stockholders ss well
as to the country contiguous to Its mala
system. In view of the road's control
In Europe, It is not believed that Har.
rlmnn can longer restrain Its extension
Into western Oregon. - - '
The forelan holders got their present
control of Santa Fe stock at 117 per
share, In the Raring Bros.' failure, when
they loaned 111.000.000 to the Insolvent
firm In an effort to aave it from bank
ruptcy and took the stock of the Santa
Fe as security. - Since thtn Harrlman Is
said to have offered as high aa lilt
per shsre for, control of- this rosd, and
. Belatloae Bsve CTaaaged. .
In connection with the Santa Fe it la
Interesting to note that ita relations to
the Harrlman roads on the raoine coast
have radically ehanged a! nee the ..new
interstate commerce law became effec
tive. June 1. Agreements by which
Pacific coast territory wss divided be
tween the Southern Pacific and the
Santa Fe are null and void under, this
law." The agreement by which Harrt
man was not to build a coast. lino south
of Eureka, and the Santa Fa waa tinder
pledge not to build north of the aama
point, la no longer In force.
It wu in anticipation oi mis ensnge
that Harrlman. it Is said, ordered con
struction of the Coos bay extension, and
sent-his engineers to locate a route
from the bay south along the coast.
At about tbe-ssme time one Evana, rep
resenting capitalists whose names be
refuses to divulge, began promotion, of
a road from Eureka to liakevlew. In
southern Oregon. Other construction
movements have sprung up. It is dally
more apparent that railroad agreements
In various directions are broken.
Four weeks ago, when In negotiations
for a compromise 'of the north bank
fight Hill demanded that the Columbia
Valley Railroad company's project be
withdrawn. Harrlman la aald to have
anawered that ha knew nothing about
that company's operations and had no
power to stop It It was assumed that
the Columbia Valley, In disguise of a
Harrlman line, was really a Milwaukee
project and that Harrlman waa unable
to make terms without consent of Ear
ling, who refused to quit Now. that
Harrlman haa gained control. It la said

ELDER SNYDER REPLIES TO

Supports Belief in Seventh Day
Sabbath by Quotations
From the Bible. 1
'At the Auditorium last night Elder
O. A. Bnyder, replying to the attack on
Seventh Day Adventlsra made last Sun
day night by Rev. Clarence True Wil
son, supported his belief In the seventh
day Sabbath by frequent -quotations
from the Bible and declared that "We
expect to stand by the authentic ver
sions of.tho Bible until we have some
stronger evidence, than .mere wind."
Continuing. Elder Snyder said: "How
could the day on which Christ rose be
the first otfe of the new series, and Sun
day, twenty yesrs later, when Paul wrote
to the Corinthians, also be the first one
of the same series? It is simply pre
posterous, and yet It Is Just whst our
critic's argument Involves; for - the
Greek words are precisely the same In
both texts, as any one can see by --consulting
a Greek Testament So fight
here at the very outset the argument
commits suicide and is dead. We will
now follow It slowly down the road to
