pressman In the West Tells of H
First Trip Out of Portland.
Joseph P. Goodhue, local ngent for
the Northern Pacific Express com'
pany Is without doubt the oldest ex
pressman on tho active list on tho
Pacific coast, says the Union. He
carried express in Oregon as early as
18G5 and made his first trip as an ex
press messenger Into Fort Walla
Walla In February 1860.
He helped to make history as did
those other pioneers who gathored
at the recent reunion.
Mr. Goodhue was a sailor In his
youth and left his old home In Mas
sachusetts just 50 years ago the 26th
of September, coming west by way
of Cape Horn. A peculiar colucl
dence. says Mr. Goodhue, Is the fact
that half a century after he left the
old homestead his granddaughter
went to the old home to reside. Tho
old expressman tells an amusing
story of his Initial trip as an express
'I was employed," he said, to car

to Corvallls and along the Rogue
river valley. I was a sailor ami
knew comparatively nothing about

and I said I believed bo as I had set

gave me an old mule and a big pair
of Mexican spurs. I called them

right. The spurs were used and the

Mr Goodhue, "and from the way the
mule behaved I thought I had In

to look at my animal and In an In
stant I was sprawling on the ground.
The mule galloped away.
"I saw a tall lank Missourlan com
ing up the road and yelled to him to
stop my steed. He did so and when
I reached him remarked, 'He doesn't
seem to be hurt much,' tho fellow re

111 cost $750,000 to construct aud
quip the rapid transit system upon
tho World's Fair grounds. The length
f the road and its branches will be
eight miles and it will enable visitors
to see tho vast exposition with as lit
tle fatigue as possible. The problem
planning the intra-mural road has
been to place It whero it would not
mar the beauty of the exposition.
Eminent engineers have been called
into consultation and all phases of
the project thoroughly studied. It
Is believed the plan presented by
Charles v. Weston, of Chicago, comes
nearest to a perfect solution of the
difficulty. Owing to the varying al
titudes of the exposition grounds the
road will be at times an elevated line
and In other parts built at grade or
below the surface. The trip on the
intra-mural will be one of the most
delightful diversions for visitors to
