Why Hill Had
Seattle Man Telfa of Financing of
Great Northern Extension to
Seattle, Wash., May 29 (U. P.)
Tt was th'e ambition of James J. HU1
tc re-build Belgium at the close of tho
war, this from a sense of, gratitude for
aid Belgians gave him at a time wtien
his railroad career was at stake, as
well as from" his faith in the Belgian
enterprise and industry.
This is vouched for by County Com
missioner Michael J. Carrigan of Se
attle, whose first acquaintance with
Hill began tn the early "SOs, when Car
ilsan besought the empire builder to

Honey Was Scare.
Hill's project of extending the Great
Northern to Seattle aroused a storm
of criticism, especially since the panij
of 1893 was fast approaching. Seeking
capital Hill-went to New York, to Lon
don, to Germany, to Holland, to inter
est financiers in the project. He re
turned without results.
It was then that Archbishop Ireland,
according to Carrigan, came to Hill's
aid. Ireland and Hill were intimate
"I don't know whether this will
help," said Ireland, "but I will give you
a letter to the pope," and the bishop
also endorsed Hill's plans, practically
underwriting the transcontinental rail
road. It was through this letter that
the pope's influence was obtained by
which Hill was introduced favorably
to Belgian financiers, and the project
