the advantage of such a system.
First Absolute ownership in Portland,
thereby insuring to this city at leant a
just share of the trade of Oregon', Wash
ington and Idaho. '- ',
SecondSuch a system, with its-unlimited
carrying facilities, would relieve
the present deplorable transportation
muddle and prevent its repetition in the
future. - .
Third This system, costing but about
one-eighth of that of the Oregon Railway .
& Navigation and being operated at a
correspondingly low figure, would result
in a reduction of at lenst 50 per cent, of
the present rates.
Fourth The assurance of cheap water
rates would result in the immediate
settlement and improvement of millions
of acres of land in Eastern Oregon and
Washington, the trade of which would
be assured to Portland.
Fifth Such a system being operated
without any of the burdensome alliances
or great corporate expenses of its most
formidable competitors would be able to
withstand any opposition," and at the
same time give to producers of the In
land Empire the benefits of iermanent
cheap water transportation.
Sixth For the purpose of securing a
carrying trade other than local, arrange- '
ments might be made with the Great
Northern and other roads approachinsr
points on the Upper Columbia for the
shipment of through freights 'to and
from San Francisco.
Seventh A pro rata law such as is in
force in the other states, might be
adopted by the ogon and Washington
legislatures, compelling rival roads to
receive and deliver freights at water con- "
nections and forward the same for a
reasonable amount of the whole haul,
thus giving to all sections of Eastern
Oregon and Washington the beriefiits of
Eighth Such a, system being operated
by Oregon and Washington capital for-
the sole purpose of earning a legitimate
interest on the money actually invested,
would be able to ' defeat any possible
railroad combinations detrimental to
either the producing or industrial inter
est of Oregon or Washington.
Ninth Such an enterprise would give
cheaper lumber and coal, and better
prices for grain and wool to Eastern .
Oregon, and a valuable local market to
Portland. . '
Tenth For the purpose of aiding the
agricultural interests of the state.arrange-
ments could be made for the erection of
grain warehouses on the Columbia where
grain could be stored and advances made
upon the same until .such time as favor
able foreign shipments were offered.
COST OF SUCH AN ENTERPRISE.
Pn re be MS of Hunt system Ut000,000

Two steamships (San Francixco service) 500,003
Grain elevators, warehouses, etc 100,000
Incidental floating bunds, etc 200,000
In summing up Jthe probable cost of
such a system, I have allowed $2,000,000
for the purchase of the Hunt system,
but as he might not be disposed to sell
at that or any other figure, and as the 'I
same results could be had through as
traffic agreement with him,' that item
might be stricken out.. The estimated
cost of a ship railway at Ceiilo is $1,250,
000. This is a work that ought to be
undertaken by the general government
but for the purpose of giving the country
the benefits of a speedy completion of
the same, it might be constructed by a
private corporation and allow the gov
ernment the right of purchase as soon as
its feasibility and value to commerce,
was' determined. And the "same might
be said- with reference to the Cascade
locks. Thus the actual cost of an open
river with an ample river and railway
service attached would be about $2,000,
000, a very insignificant sum when the
benefits to the country are considered,
As Portland has "already expressed a
willingness to invest $2,000,0000, in the
Hunt railroad, (a minority interest too)
for the sole purpose of securing indepen
dent connections with the "Inland Em
pire," I see no reason why it cannot take
this matter up single-handed, and con
duct a profitable transortation system
just as well as Henry VilTard, Elijah
Smith or anybody-else?" r
Of the sum necessary to carry out '
such an undertaking, not more than
twenty per cent, of the capital stock need
be paid, the balance being obtainable
through the sale of . bonds to run from
twenty to fifty years. To prove that
steamboating is not as unprofitable as
he Oregon Railway & Navigation com
pany would have us believe, it is only '
necessary for us to refer to the career of
Captain U. B. Scott. When it is consid
ered that Portland's wealth and com
mercial prestige, has made the forma
tion of such companies jxissible, as the
Oregon Raihvay & Navigation (capital
$40,000,000), Oregon & Transcontinental
($40,000,000), and Oregon Improvement
Company ($15,000,010), I see no reason
why a perfectly feasible transportation
company backed by business interests of
Portland, and carrying w ith it an assur
ance of economical management and
freedom from stock jobbery, could not
readily float bonds in New York to the
amount of $4,000,000. In conclusion I
would ask how much of the grain crop'
of Eastern Oregon and Washington
would go to the Sound for shipment with
such a system as this owned "absolutely
