For some time, says the Ureonian,
conjectures have been rife as to
whether the standard and narrow
gauge ..railway lines centering here
would te consolidated, and when. Al
though the Orcgonian railway and
bonds were Ixmght under an assumed
name in Xcw York, it is believed the
object was to acquire si clear title un
der foreclosxire sale aud consolidate
with the Portland and Willamette
Valley. Now it is learned from relia
ble authority that the latter road, and
also the Oregonian, east, and west
side, are both to lie made standard
gauge, consolidated and transferred to
the Southern Pacific system. All this,
it seems, was contemplated and pre
vionslvjarranged as far back as April
10, 1SS7, when an agreement was
signed between the London and
Frankfort bondholders of the Oregon
and California railroad and the
Southern Pacific company, wherein
the latter company, by article 3 of
that agreement, was authorized to ac
quire the narrow gauge roads in west
ern Oregon, and when converted into
tin? standard gauge system were to be
paid in 5 jer cent bonds of the Ore
gon and California railroad, 30.000
par or face value of bonds for each
mile or standard gauge so to be ac
quired. Acting on this agreement, Mr. C. P.
Huntington did, on May 10, 1887,
tlen purchase a two-thirds interest in
tlie Portland & Willamette Valley
road, wliich has ever since been oper
ated by "Mr. Win. Beid under his di
rections, and was recently transferred
atXew York by Mr. lleid, to the
Southern Pacific syndicate, when h?
HBdertook tlie construction and exten
tionol the Astoria & South Coast
As Uh Oregonian road was for years
ia the United States supreme court
oa the validity question of the Villard
lea, Mr. Huntington could not ac
quire it until last summer, when the
$125 AND $150 PER LOT
EOBB & PARKER, General Ag'te, Astoria.
Scotch liquidator resumed negotia
tions with him, resulting in the pur
chase and payment laet November for
the Oregonian railway at 100 cents on
the dollar for that company's bonds
and first mortgage, now being fore
closed in the United States circuit
court here, and alxut 40 cents on 1 lie
dollar to Scotch creditors.
It will be remembered last
spring that Mr. ltcid obtained from
the legislature a franchise to build a
railroad bridge across the Willamette
river at Fulquartz, where the P. fc W.
V. road now terminates. This fran
chise lie obtained for the Southern
Pacific, at le;ist it was transferred in
November last at New York by Mr.
Reid to Mr. Huntington. The charter
provides that work on the bridge must
be commenced before May 1 next, and
last month instructions were received
by the Southern Pacific company's of
fice in Oregon to commence the bridge
surveys, which have 6ince been com
plete, and work has been ordered pro
ceeded with at the bridge site.
Engineers from the Southern
Pacific company have arrived
in Oregon to survey an
extension from the narrow guage road
at Coburg to Springfield, but only as
standard guage. and there connect
with the O. fc C. railroad, and it seems
lxith of the narrow gauge have aljo
been ordered to be changed this fall to
the standard gauge. Passengers may
then proceed lo East Portland with
out change, via Woodhnrn and Hay's
Landing bridge and Dundee .1 unction
and P. A: AV. V. to the Jefferson street
depot, or via Hay's Lauding bridge to
Hillsboro, via Lafayette and West
Side road, aud eventually to Astoria,
over the Astoria and South Coast
It is contemplated by the Southern
Pacific lo make an extension this fall
(upon the standard gauge system) of
the Oregonian railway, beyond Sheri
dan in the direction of Tillamook, for
fifteen miles, with the view eventually
some years hence of reaching Tilla
mook. Meantime, as this extension
will pass through the Gniudllonde
Indian reservation and a fine agri
cultural country, to be opened for
settlement by the president this year,
it will bring the coast couhIk-s lo rail
connection twenty-one miles from the
sea, and when the settlements and
population warrant it, it will be ox
tended further north, parallel to the
AH the members or the Southern Pa
cific syndicate, including Mr. C. P.
Huntington, are to bo in Portland
next month, and will visit western
Oregon with the view of considering
what other extensions may profitably
be made, or changes arc necessary.

Kansas City, Feb. 23.- A disjH'ath
received here this morning states that
Walton, who stole $3.,X)0 from y
Pacific Express company at Dallas,
Texas, has been captured in St. .Johns,
N. 13. Only $7,000 was found on him.
The offense is not extraditable. Wal
ton had. according to detectives sto
ries, been traveling some lime with
two gamblers, who, it is thought, re
lieved him of a large portion of his ill
gotten wealth. One of them was ar
rested at Montreal a couple of days
ago with 3,000 iu his possession. It
is understood Walton wits preparing
to go to Europe from Halifax, and
that the gamblers were preparing to
rob him before ho look the steamer.
St. Johns, N. 13., Feb. 23. Walton
the express jobber, who was arrested
here last night, arrived here several
days ago in company with John Laird
and Frank Brady, two notorious Mon
treal gamblers, to whom, it is claimed
he gave a large sum of money to get
him out of Canada. They also got
more money from him by gam
bling. They left here a few
days ago and went lo Montreal, where
they have been arrested for aiding
and abetting Walton in bringing
stolen money into Canada. Walton
had left S7.O0O when arreslcd. In his
valise was found one package of
money with the original Dallas wrap
pers and seals intact

ranged downward to the neck. It was
extracted. The police surgeon says
that not once iu a thousand times

such short range enter a man's head
at such a place and fail lo penetrate

Washington, D. C. Feb. 21. In
spile or the bad day, the rain falling
in torrents aud a disagreeable wind,
the galleries of the house at noon were
Spectators and crowds obstructed the
corridors. All these people had gath
ered to witness the deciding struggle
between New York, Chicago, St.
L:;u:s aud Washington, upon the re
sult of which depended the location of
the world's fair or 1S02.
A host of representative men from all
four sections were to be seen in the
Clark read special orders prescrib
ing the method of voting upon the site
for the fair requiring some one place
to have a majority of all votes cast.
Blount of Georgia wished to know if
there would be any opiortnnity af
forded to decide upon the question as
to whether there shall be a fair lefore
selecting a sit.
Speaker Heed replied that under
a special order an opportunity could
not be had and immediately directed
the clerk to call the roll.
There was some applause and the
first few resinmses were made which
were promptly checked by Ihe

The Chicago people were jubilant
upon the announcement on the first
ballot, but were restrained from ex
pressing their feelings openly by
reason of the speaker's caution to
refrain from any demonstration. Dur
ing the recapitulation ot names there
were signs of consulation among the
leaders and Chicago and Washington
people looked with suspicion upon
Dockery, of Missouri, when he ap
proached Amos Cujimings, of New
York and held a whispered conversa

The second ballot showed a gain
of six and eleven for Chicago and
New York respectively, and losses of

by Ihe payment of the Manhattan

has been only S5,471.
Each company is supposed to pay
the city 5 per cent ot the net receipts.
Figuring on this basis would make
tlie company's anunal receipts only

of which are popularly supposed to
