"were detached and tho engineer com

gave tho engineer and fireman a
stick of giant powder and told them
to compel the mail agents and express
messengers to open their cars or they
would compel them to throw the
sticks and destroy tho car3. Then
they robbed tho cars and secured
about 4,000 or 5,000 from Wells,

molested. The train was stopped by
piling ties on the track, and then
swinging a red light. The Southern

THEO. E. &N. 00.
Origin of a Oompany That Has Made
The Old O. S. N. Company anil the Men
That Founded It.
The transfer of the O. B. & NCo.'s
railroad and steamboats to the Union
Pacific railroad company in a prac
tically perpetual lease, naturally at
tracts popular attention to the old
dajs of the O. S. N. Co., the pioneer
and predecessor of tho O. B. & N. Co.,
which, after seven years' existence,
now gives way, in turn, to the Union
Pacific and transcontinental traffic.
It. was many years ago, .and in a
small way, that the O. S. N. company
was starte'd.- Capt J. O. Ainsworth;
P.. B.- Thompson, S. G. Reed and W.
S. "Ladd were among its incorpora
tors. In the early seventies it made
heaps of money, had everything its
own way on the tipper and lower
river, and. was run in a style that
even now is reverted to with regretful
contrast by Elijah Smith's employes.
It was "regular steamboat style."
If a captain or a purser or a steward
wanted to chalk a man's hat from As
toria to Portland, or from Portland to
The Dalles; if a prominent employo
saw fit to bring a friend to dinner on
the trip, it was "all right" The com
pany" was making plenty money, and
the liberal, old fashioned way that it
allowed in no way tended to diminish
The old O. S. N. Co. occupies a
warm spot in the hearts of a good
many who recollect its workings. It
had a tendency to build up the coun
try and to make folks feel satisfied
When Jay Cooke uas booming his
Northern Pacific stock in '71 and 72
he considered it necessary to buy
large blocks of the O. S. N. Co.'s
stork, and when the ciash came in
'73, aud he went down under the
ruiii:, this O. S. N. stock was tho
most valuablo part of the broken
banker's assets. It was all bought
back again by its former owners, and
the Columbia river company kept
right on making money.
In 187U Henry yillard appeared on
the sceue. He saw at once the op
portunities and the possibilities that,
rightly worked, would develop into
certainties, and in his fertile brain
originated the idea of tho O. B. & N.
company and Oregon Transconti
nental. He first opened negotiations
with the O. S. N. company, and after
backing and filling for several months,
in the meantime placing a direct
count on every pound of freight aud
passenger on the company's boats,
and getting their figures and finding
that tho business required more cap
ital than he could then swing, he
made the first move in the great and
finely plannod financial game that
was played in '81, '82 and '83 and
which completed the Northorn Pa
While in Portland he had got tho
property of the O. S. N. Co. bonded,
on a sort of option, for a 3 ear. This
costh'im 3100,000. The option was
given him May 23, 1879. He then got
the Oregon Steamship company to
give him similar papers.
On tho 12th of Juno, 1879, nearly
eight years ago, he organized the O.
R. & N. Co. Tho names of the incor
porators were Henry Yillard, Jas. B.
Frv, A. H. Holmes, Wm. H. Starbuck,
C.'E. Bretherton, C. Bors, W. H.
Corbett, J. N. Dolph, Paul Schulze,
N. Thielson, and C. N. Lewi.
The capital stock was set at
86,000,000, divided iuto 00,000
shares of 100 each. On June
16th a mortgage was issued
to the New York Farmers' Loan &
Trust Co," and on July 15th, 6,000
bonds in the sum of $1,000 each,
were.issued, payable thirty years af
ter July 1st, 1879, with interest at six
per cent per annum.
So far Yillard had put up but
$100,000: He went to New York with
the option and tried to get Gould to
comoMu, but that capitalist refused
unless he coujd come in on the
ground floor. He and Yillard then
agreed to disagree, and Gould waited
for nearly five years till he pulled
him off his pedestal in January. 'SL
Yillard is reported to have then gone
to Europe, but meeting with little en
couragement there to float what was,
as time proved, a feasible auu money
making scheme, he came back to this
country and finally found in Endi
cott of B oston, (now secretary of war
and opposed to improvements at the
Cascades), a willing adjunct. Endi
cott, Pullman, and others stood in
and on the 31st of March, 18S0, the
O. B. & N. Ce: bought the O. S. N.
Co.'s plant, paying S2,300,000 there
for, which was considered at the time
to be a big price. The Oregon
Steamship company's plant had been
secured on the 26th of the previous
Tho new company, the O. B. & N.
Co., then boomed things. They be
gan building a railroad up the Co
lumbia, and extended their operations
in other directions. Tho stock and
bonds which were in the hands of
Boston capitalists, who secured them
at a discount, went up appreciably in
value. O. B. & N. stock was a good
buy in Boston, New York and Phil
adelphia, it touched par, passed it,
sold at 110, 150, 180, and finally 200;
then the stock was increased to
89,000,000; then $12,000,000; then
$15,000,000. It made a handsome
percentage even on this, inflated from
the original $2,300,000 buy, enlarged
to $6,000,000 of capital stock. It was
always the backbone and mainstay of
the famous Oregon Transcontinental,
so dear to the memory of many Port
landers, and through all the vicissi
tudes of "84 held up well in value.
Last Juno the assets of the Oregon
Transcontinental were figured up,
and the O. B.-& N. holdings then set
down" as 139,413 shares at $108 a
share, an agggregate of $15,055,600;
the next in- value being $5,588,000
worth of Northern Pacific stock, com
mon and preferred.
This is the briefest outline of the
formation of the company. A de
tailed history, and account of Vil-
lard's subsequent "blind pool" and
the results would oxceei the limits of
this article. But space must be found

A SPECIAL TARIFF.
Some Now UatM on Eastbonnd Cherland
The Northern Pacific yesterday,
says tho News of the 28th, put
into effect from St. Paul and other
eastern terminals to Portland, Asto
ria, Tacoma rnd Seattle the special
westbound tariff, whioh was prepared
in Chicago in March to be used in
case of emergency. This special tar
iff is very nearly the same as tho
transcontinental tariff which was in
effect previous to. tho freight war
last ear. In a. word, tho now rates
are about 50 per cent, higher than
those which prevailed before the in
terstate commerce bill became a law.
Tho Union Pacific has also adopted
the emergency-tariff. -
Tho O. B. & N. line yesterday put
in operation the regular ante-war
east bound transcontinental tariff to
the Missouri river, Chicago, St. Louis
and common points. Tho new rates,
as far as they effect principal pro
ducts, are a3 follews:
Salmon In carloads, S1.25 per
hundred pounds from Portland," As"
toria, Tacoma and Seattle.
Wool Compressed and baled, 19
pounds per cubic foot, when shipped
under a valuation of 12 cents per
pound, $1.50 per hundred pounds.
Hops Interstate law rates on this
product are $1.75 per hundred to Mis
souri river and common point?, $1.85
to St. Louis and $1.95 to Chicago.
These figures are a little lower than
the. oil transcontinental rates and
will not be disturbed.
It is probable that the rates on the
above articles will be put into effect
also to New York and common points,
as soon as arrangements, now pend
ing, are perfected. Northwestern
shippers will greatly appreciate such
