Stubbs of Southern
TALKS ON THE RAILROAD SITUATION
New York, Sept. 13—J. C. Stubbs
vice-president of the Union Pacific
and Southern Pacific and chief d -
rector of all tiarrimad lines, wl o
was summoned to this city by the
alaiming illness of Mr Harriman,
talked freely on conditions in the
far northwest on the day of Mr.
With reference to occujiancy of
the Deschutes Canyon, Mr. Stubbs
"As I understand it, the report
that there is room tor I nt one rail
road in die upper half ot the canyon
is false. I believe there is sufficient
room for half a dozen lines there,
and we are building into Central
O'egon without delav.
"Of the projected low-grade
cut off between Weed, Cal., and
Eugene, Ore, the section to
Klamath Falls has been competed
for some time and ."oust ruction
toward Eugene is now in progress
Buck board and horseback surveys
have been made from Klamath
Falls northeasterly across Oregon
to Ontario <n the Oregon Short
Line on the Idaho border, and I
presume that this line, about 300
miles long, will be constructed as
soon as the Southern Pacific be
lieves that it is called tor."
As to the report that rhe Northern
Pacific has been negotiating foi
waterfront property in the Coos
Bay district, on the Oregon Coa-t,
intending to [extend its Deschutes
Canyon line south and west to th-
Bay, bringing it too miles nearer
to San Francisco, Mr. Stubbs fur
• I do not believe that there is
any foundation foi it The outlook
for traffic in this district is not such
as to warrant competition
hive already put in several months
of construction work on a line to
extend from Drain, Ore., to Coos
Bay and th's line will be completed
“1 am a little skeptical about the
financial value of this territory. In
cluding the Portland Seattle con
nection, when the traffic is divided
among two or three roads. It seems
to me that there is not much in it,
save for the line which is first in
the field, in a case where later lines
are compelled to use its tracks.
Ho.'.ever, that is a point which the
future alone can determine. 1 do
not believe that the Hill plans call
for an extension south of Coos
Bay. As for the Hill roads entering
San Francisco, I do not believe that
will come to pass in our day.”
Mr. Stubbs was particular in con
nection w ith these statements to have
it understood that as to new liner
..nd construction he might not be
fully informed, as these are not
under his supervision and he there
fore ¿as able to express only his
personal views based upon such
knowledge as he had gained.

how the railroad will look when

every fill and every cut will be, also
a display of the resources along the
road and many other matters of im-
portanee in connection with the
road can be seen at that time.
The sale of stock for the new
road is progiessing very rapidly,
md the demand is far greater than
the fondest anticipations of the pro
motors. Messrs Lucas and Hop

the road, stated that the financing
