"VVe have given through these
columns says the Oregonian, the
document prepared by Mr. Villa: d,
and embodying his suggestions as
io relations between the two com
panies, together with his views as
to-plans of construction and oper
ation. Our readers will likewise
be interested in a statement of the
-views of Mr. Billings, as embodied
in a letter to Mr. Villard. By
comparing the two documents it
-will be seen that the views present
ed in them are at variance on a
single point. The difference may
"be thus stated.
Mr. Villard suggests that the
Northern Pacific postpone all new
construction west of "Wallula,
until the main line shall be finished
to Ainsworth, with the exception
of a short extension from Ains--worth
to the Yakima country; but,
after the completion of such main
Jine to Ainsworth, the Northern
Pacific to be at liberty to build
over the Cascade range or along
the Columbia river, or both, :is the
best interests of the company may
Tequire. Mr. Billings answers, in
substance, that he does not wish
to consent by such arrangement
to postpone construction of the
-western division of the Northern
The surveys for the Cascade
line are not completed, but he be
lieves a practicable route will be
found. If, however, there is no
practicable route, that ends the
matter. He argues the case on
trrounds wholly different from
those stated in Mr. Villard's reason
ing, which set forth very strongly
the advantages that would accrue
to both companies from the ar
rangement proposed. There is
force in either argument; but it is
plain that the plan of Mr. Villard
-would hasten the completion of
the Northern Pacific across the
-continent, and, by saving the pres
ent expenditure of many millions
on the most difficult pare of the
line, where there is no local traffic
demanding a line, would prove
taking the whole situation into ac
count to be the better business
The Dalles Mountaineer sug
gests that the rapid extension of that
city to the south and east renders
the present means of communica
tion beyond the bluff disagreeable.
Fully one-fourth of the citizens
-now reside in that portion of the
city, and the necessity of opening
better facilities for communication
between the two sections is daily
growing more urgent. You want
the elevator railway, Bro. Hand,
such as they have about Pittsburg,
Pennsylvania. 11 The Dalles is
to keep up its reputation of a live
town which it is now acquiring,
you must see that all necessary
improvements are made at any
rate. You have got started in the
inarch of improvements and now
keep it up.
The proposed Union Pacific ex
tension from Granger, Wyoming,
to Portland, runs from Granger to
.Bear river, thence through Soda
Springs, Idaho, down Snake river
and to Portland. The line is about
SOO miles in length and will be
read' for the work of construction
at the earliest possible day. Mr.
Clark, of Omaha, has charge of the
surveying of the first 150 miles
from Granger, and expects to be
engaged until the middle of the
summer or longer. This extension
will give a valuable outlet to Ore
gon, as well as reaching some
valuable points in Idaho. When
we passed Granger coming west,
on the 25th ult., six days after the
final agreement between the Union
JPacific and Oregon Railwaj' and
Navigation companies, tents of the
engineer corps were in the field.
The intention is to have the road
finished and in complete operation
oy the end of June, 1882. It will
cross the Utah and Northern about
as far north of Ogden as it leaves
ithe main line cast of Ogden.
The Best Homes.
There is much wealth and con
siderable culture in cities of Cali
fornia and Oicgon, but what is
needed is more homes where the
talented and accomplished could
occasionally meet. Hghics like
that of Lady Bessington and the
Holland mansion in London, and
the late Carey sisters in New
York. The houses occupied by
these ladies will remain forever
famous for the delightful society
that gathered there. It was at
Lady Bessington's that Lord Ma
cauly first met Tom Moore. In
fact most of the celebrated authors
and men of nonius in England of
the past generation have made the
acquaintance of each other in one
or another of the Iwmes mentioned.
At the Carey sisters in New York
could be found almost any
evening, either Horace Greeley,
Bayard Taylor, Bancroft, the
historian, Rev. Dr. Chapin,
Stedman, the poet, and men
distinguished in science or phi
losophy, thinkers and orators. It
was always regarded a very high
honor to be invited to the home of
Alice and Phoebe Carey, on ac
count of the brilliant compaivy one
was alwaj's sure to meet there.
Why do not some of our Oregon
and California ladies of wealth
make her house a rendezvous for
men and women of talent? Surely
no position in fashionable society
could at all equal the fame such a
lady would achieve when she had
once gathered beneath her roof the
gifted people of our coast. It
would not be necessary to in
vite the bohemian penny lin
ers. There are plenty of
thinkers and people who write
and talk brilliantly, who are
ladies and gentlemen as well
This most delightful home of the
Pacific has yet to be made. It
will be the one where cultured
and talented peopje can always
find a welcome and be kindly en
tion such guests give in return for
hospitality far exceed the cost and
trouble their visits make. What
can be more refreshing than to
know that at a certain home you
can always find some one who has
knowledge to impart a place
where genial wit meets mellow
humor, and where not an hour can
be spent without improvement of
