Mr. Walker, however, may be able
to enlighten a court as to certain
particulars regarding , the - rather
. mysterious death of the Portland,
Nehalem & " Tillamook railroad,
which he alleges there were 'funds
ready to build years ago, but the
bonds for which the officers of the
company, acting in response to some
kind of influence from some quarter,
refused ? to sign. , By sufficient
cudgelling of his memory, Mr. Har

years to build a road from some

a company was ostensibly about
to succeed 4n building from Port
land . its officers suddenly ,and, sus
; plclously "fell! down" and allowed
the project to collapse; and that
some ' time later ' Mr. Lytle found
money to go ahead with It.
It Is greatly to be hoped, what-
. ever. Mr. Walker may be able to
show, that work on the' Tillamook
road will ; not be . . indefinitely' sus
