Portland, September I, 1877.
The people of Oregon should beware
of signing a petition gotten up by the
IsTorthern Pacific Railroad company
and being peddled around by J. D.
Sanborn. That petition prays of con
gress to grant the petition of the
Northern Pacific for an extension of
time according to its present charter,
which locates its road on the north
side of the Columbia, and ignores
Oregon altogether. Besides it does
not appear what else may be in their
petition to congress. The whole move
is to defeat the memorial of the people
to congress to have that road built on
the south side of the Columbia to
Portland, and in opposition to the
Portland, Dalles and Salt Lake rail
road. Read the last part of their pc
tition and you will see the deception
attempted to be practiced. That com
pany, oy deceptive legislation, tncKea
