Astoria, Oregon, Tuesday Morning, September 25, 1883
When the late Samuel Bowles
wrote his book "Across the Conti
ncnt," in 1SG8, his most sanguine
dream was that the two sides of
the continent should be connected
by railroad. Even his ardent na
ture probably did not conceive
that within less than twenty years
there would be five lines across
Urn continent within the United
States, and one being actively
pushed to completion wholly north
of our northern boundary. Yet
the Canadian Pacific, which we are
accustomed to think of as daring
Boreas to the last degree, will at
no point reach as high latitude as
London and will in the main lie
along the parallel of Paris; so dif
ferent are the two hemispheres
and-so boldly do we push civiliza
tion to neutralize the climatic bal
ance against us.
But in reality it takes an active
attention to railroad development
to keep up with the rapidity of
movements by which the gridiron
of lines now covering what was
once the "Great American Des
ert" suddenly straightens in both
directions and throws new spurs
to either ocean. We will briefly
review the transcontinental lines
now in operation to date. Per
haps we shall better understand
from their number why the stocks
of some of the roads first built are
so low in the market.
3. The Union Pacific, origi
nally from Omaha to Ogden, Utah,
and the Central Pacific, from
Ogden to San Francisco, the tvo
making the first transcontinental
Y-t. Now the Union Pacific by
consolidation with the Kansas Pa
cific, has a parallel line from Kan
sas City to Denver, Col., and nu
merous branches in Colorado; also
a north anil south line in Utah on
the south and another in Idaho and
Montana on the north, both of
which open means of reaching the
Pacific coast independent of the
Central. Through Idaho it
reaches Oregon by the Oregon
Short Line, not yet completed, al
though in 1SG5 this route was
deemed likely to be speedily fol
lowed, before the Northern Pa
cific was thought of. But we
shall still call the Union Pacific
and Central Pacific the first Pa
II. The Southern Pacific .and
Texas Pacific was the second line
opened, connecting rails last year.
The former is the child of the Cen
tral Pacific capitalists of Califor
nia, the latter the Tom Scott road.
The whole line runs from Texar
kar.a, Ark., to Yuma, Cal., and
lies between the thirty-first and
III. The Northern Pacific, the
only one which covers nearly its
whole line with its own road
from St. Paul and Minneapolis,
Min., to Portland and Kalama,
Oregon. It lies mostly between
the fort3T-fifth and forty-seventh
parallels, but crosses the Rockies
north of the latter4.
IV. The Atlantic and Pacifio
line is from Seneca, Mo., to the
Needles on the Colorado river in
California. This line pursues the
thirty-fifth parallel andthe western
half of it from Albuquerque in
New Mexico to the Needles, where
it meets the Southern Pacific in
California, 571 miles, was com
pleted last year. The eastern
section is about completed. It
parallels the Southern Pacific at a
distance of 200 miles.
V. The Atchinsou, Topeka
and Santa Fe, from Atchinson,
Kan., to Pueblo, Col., there meets
the Denver and Rio Grande nar
row gauge, which has an exten
sive system in Colorado and Utah,
as far as Ogden, thus striking the
Central Pacific. Another part of
the former line runs down to Santa
Fe and strikes the Atlantic and
Pacific at Albuquerque. Here are
the elements of the fifth line
across the continent, not yet
fully crystallized. But should the
antagonism between these two
roads' pre vent their coming togeth
er, there is another suitor for the
narrow-gauge nuptials in the
Denver line of the Chicago, Bur3
lington and Quinc'.
No wonder the brain of the in
ventor whirls at these rapid combi
nations and he fails to see how
the transcontinental traffic can
sustain so many enterprises. It is
safe to say that their only profit
lies in the growth of local trade
It is the great development of
Colorado, for which so many
enterprises have been aiming, and
whenever there is a field for cities
and men, there these railroads will
serve a utility, while those more
dependent on purely transconti
nental trade will have the largest
haul but the smallest margin of
Money for a Turkish Bath.
"Why, my dear Mrs. W., I ex
pected to find you ill in bed after
what I heard of your severe cold
and am astonished to see you look
ing so well, even better than usual.
What did you do to recover so
speedily? AYhat doctor did you
employ? Homeopathic or allo
pathic? Do tell me all about it at
once." t:I took no medicine and
employed no plrysician. A Turk
ish bath did the work for me and
you see how well and speedily it
has been accomplished." "A
Turkish bath! Why we've no
way of taking them in this little
town! You must be joking!
Please do not keep me in suspense
"Well, I will tell you how I man
aged it. We had a large ironing
to do, and though I felt stupid and
unlike exercise, I compelled my
self to do it because I knew it
would be better than medicine,
and the ironing had to be done.
It is warm work 3-ou know, and I
was soon in a profuse perspiration.
I avoided a draught of course and
rested thoroughly after it was ov
er, and fell into a profound slum
ber. When I awoke I looked in
vain for my cold. I felt a iiltle
weak, but very well indeed. So
you see, I've made money by the
operation, if la penny saved is a
penny earned.' A Turkish bath
would have cost two dollars, aside
from the time and trouble. The
ironing would have been one, and
a doctor's fee and medicine would
have beenP much more at least.
So you see'-T made six dollars, and
disposed o'f jny cold, which latter
did me six dollars worth of good,
if such ailments can be considered
in connection with money values.
A clear gain of twelve dollars!
Isn't it wonderful, how one's gams
increase after they once get into
the money - market and get a
It is estimated that during the
season 946 miles of road will be
constructed on the Canadian Pa
cific railroad. This record is with
out parallel in the history of rail
way building, cither in the old
world or the new. By the end of
the present month grading will be
completed to the summit of the
Rocky mountains, and about a
week later trains will be running
to that point. General Manager
Van Home, says the total number
of miles completed is 1902; num
ber of miles under construction,
964. The company has in its cm
ploy 25,000 men, and pay wages
of $100,000 per day. At tho last
session of parliament the minister
of railwaj's stated that the entire
road would be completed in De
cember, 1886, two years in ad
vance of the time stipulated in the
contract; but so remarkable has
been the progress made that at
the end of next session the minis
ter will be able to make the pre
diction within two years, or a year
earlier than he had predicted the
entire road would be completed.
Rev. A. P. Happer figures out
a steady decrease in the popula
tion of China. He says the pres
ent number of inhabitants cannot
exceed 300,000,000. Chief anions
the causes of diminution is opium.
He believes that the population of
India will soon exceed that of
China, the latter ceasing to be the
most populous country on the
Iron in a colorless state and Peru
vian bark, combined with well known
aromatics, make Brown's Iron Bitters,
the best medicine known.
Now, as regards the gentler sex
who came here to "hold down"
their claims, says a Dakota letter.
All over the Territory you will
find these little shanties In manv
of them stylish and pretty young
ladies take up a night's lodging
once a month or oftener. I hare
seen numbers of Misses from the
eastern states who are here l'hoId-
ing down" a quarter section. Oth
ers who live nearer, as in Iowa or
Minnesota, or Dakota, make
monthly pilgrimages to their
ranch, or more likely go once in
two months and remain two
nights, endure this sacrifice to
their comfort and the shock to
their nerves a few times, and be
come owners of valuable real es
Lite. A Dakota girl that isn't
holding down a claim or two is a
curiosity. The only drawbaok to
the eastern "iris is the fact
that they must publicly de
ciare mat tiiey are over
21 before they can file their
application. One hundred and
sixty acres of land, you know, is
not much of an inducement to an
Eastern girl to make such an ad
mission. But out here it is alto
gether different, for it only lasts
six months, and at the end of that
time the young ladies go right
back to IS and 20 again. Indeed,
it is looked upon as really roman
tic, despite the fact that wolves
howl around at night, and gophers
play hide-and-seek through the
shanties like rats.

The Digger Indians believe that
men are developed from coyotes.
Gradually they began to assume
tho shape of man, but it was a
slow transformation. At first they
walked on all fours; then one and
another would begin to put forth
a human feature, one toe, one fin
ger one eye just like the Asci-
dian, our first vertebrate ances lor.
Then, here and there, a being
would develop a double set of
organs, two eyes, two hands and
the like. Finally, these creatures
acquired the habit of sitting up,
and so wore away their tails,
which the Coyete Indians affect
edly regret, as they consider the
tail quite an ornament.
