"In setting Portland apart as
the central point of the general
agency of the Northwest - and
making it entirely separate from
the San Francisco office," said? weeks f Kat tvs.ihai rrW
General Agent R.1 W Holder, of
the Chicago North-Western, who
has just ; arrived and taken
charge of the Portland office,
vice W. A. Cox, who has accept
ed the general agency of the
Western Maryland road, "The
Chicago North-Western Company
recognizes that the Pacific North
west has outgrown the point of
being subsidiary upon the field of
which San Francisco has here
tofore been the official center.
"The Chicago North-Western,
as do all of the other big railroad
companies fully realize the great
importance of the Northwest
field, that it has a wonderlul
future in prospect, and that the
competition in service is becom
ing more pronounced every day.
Ail the Eastern roads seem to
have taken up with the idea o:
encouraging toarist travel to visi
the Northwest, and are sending
out thousands of dollars' wort
of literature every month, setting
forth the scenic, climatic and
other natural advantages and at
tractions along their respective
lines, with this object in view."
There are indications of greater
activity than ever in developing
the great territory of the North
west. It is noticeable that every
endeavor is made to induce cap
ital to come from abroad for in
vestment. This is all right and
there is neither reason nor sense
in railing against this mode o:
procedure. still, one cannot
avoid wondering in many in
stances why it is that local cap
ital is so wary in the matter of
investment in our home-state de
velopment. A little more self
help, gentlemen, and things wil
move still livelier. As the above
quotation indicates, Portland is
growing and the entire country
is developing, but it is mostly
because outside capital is begin
