not - surprising. The power jof the commission under the
transportation act is limited! by the court ruling J.o exten
sions and branches in the iminediate territory served by the
lineof railroad. The crossstate line was a piece of mfjor
. construction into a territory iibt served either by the Union
Pacific or other line of roadi 1 i.
Looking at the map and jseeing this vast area uncrossed
'by railroads one thinks something must be wrong and that
the area is retarded by lackjof transportation'. To a degree
this is true; but the retort s that the area is so deficient
both in population and resources that a line of railroad
woiddVbe unprofitable I ' '.
Variona railroads skirt the frlnee of i this central Ore

agreement and has been active in new constructionist it
throws no arm out into the arid interior. , - ,
The people may reflect on this point too, that railroads
have steadily been abandoning branch lines because they
were costly Trucks and busei and private automobiles have
taken traffic from these brarich roads until they lose rath
er than earn money. By the, same token trucks and auto
mobiles have given transportation to areas without rail-

One trouble with this cross-state line was that it stop
ped on a mountain top.: The mere connection with the South
ern Pacific at Crescent ;woul4 be bootless, .The tonnage col
lected by the Southern Pacific on its lines in western Ore
gon would be whi3ked right jthrough Crescent and on east
over the Alturas cut-off. Westbound tonnage coming over
the Union Pacific would continue to move clear to Portland;
" and the rails from Crane to prescent would rust with only
the occasional engine and caboose and a few box cars
rumbling over them. .; ! ; . i l ' , - .

how this cross-state line would be profitable. And if it is
not profitable the burden woxild fall ultimately on the ship

- Lines Commence to Form
IT is not difficult to see the columns forming to right and
to left of the hitherto solid phalanx of the followers of
- George W. Joseph,, deceased.! The enemies both of Joseph
and of Ms program wm probably rejoice to see this, for
