ELECTRIC ROAD FROM
PENDLETON TO DAYTON.
Henrlch Mellmann Writes Letter to
Statesman In Regard to Proposed
Road Also Promises Cheaper Pow
er and Lights.
Hcurcht Mellmann, president of the
Washington & Oregon Electric Rail
way, Light and Power Company, again
comes to tho front with tho statement
that he is only waiting for something
to begin actual construction of tho
proposed electric railroad between
here and Dayton. Mr, Mellmann Is
somewhat irritated because of the re
port which was published In the East
Oregonlnn and Walla Walla papers,
saying that he was In San Francisco,
and Colonel Ferguson, whom he had
here to look over the proposed route,
had given an adverse report about
the feasibility of the road.
Mr. Mellmann Is now in San Fran
cisco and writes the following letter
to the Walla Walla Statesman In re
gard to his proposed road:
"San Francisco, Oct. 13. 1902.
"Editor Evening Statesman,
"Walla Walla, Wash.
"Dear Sir: In looking over your val
uable paper of the 9th Inst., we find
the following: 'H. Mellmann, presi
dent of the Oregon & Washington
Electric Railway, Light and Power
Company, Is at his home in Oakland,
Cal. It is reported that Colonel Fer
guson, who was here several weeks
ago to make a report on the contem
plated interurban line, has rendered
an adverse opinion to his superiors,
the principal reason of which is that
there is not enough diversified farming
In the section through which the con
templatcd road would pass. The prin
cipal product is wheat and the road
would share little in trausprotiug this
"I do not know who could have been
so reckless as to give you the inform
ation contained herein. The report of
Colonel Ferguson so far from being
adverse was exceedingly fiattcrlug, so
much so, that I am enabled to tell
you, that as the preliminaries have
all been settled, we are only now
awaiting tho report of the engineers
before beginning the construction of
this road, which I believe and hope
will greatly contribute to the pros
perity of tho great Northwest.
"By giving the above an early in
sertion, you will greatly oblige,
"Yours very truly,
"Washington & Oregon Electric Rail
way, Light and Power Company,
"By H. Mellmann."
Tho above may look good on paper
to Mr. Mellmann, hut the rople of
Fendloton would rather see some ac
tive operations commenced on the
field than to hear so much talk. There
is a general belief in the minds of
the people that railroads are easier
built on paper than on land. This
makes some skeptical about the pro
posed electrical railroad, but perhaps
Mr, Mellmann means business. It is
to bo hoped that he does. An elec
trie railroad between here and Day'
ton with a train running every two
hours would be a great innovation to
tho citizens at both ends of the line
and those living along the line. In
addition to the accommodation it
would be, it would Increase values on
lands lying adjacent to the road ma
terlally. People are also promised
cheaper power and especially electric
The franchises have been secured
for tho whole road except at the two
extreme ends. Pendleton has refus
ed to grant the franchise out and out
for tho operation of the compauy on
tho streetB, but it has announced that
It would under its own restrictions,
Dayton has also balked at giving the
franchlso over her streets, unless the
company will sign certain agreements
which heretofore have not been offer
ed by the company. Dayton, like Pen
dleton, does not care to tie up ner
streets with a franchise until she sees
that something Is going to como of It,
and then it will be with such restric
tions as will protect the town.
