thoroughly familiar with the Paci
fic Coast, where ho had lived for
some years, returning from a visit
to that section after a long absence,
could scarcely find words to express:
his amazement at its progress. His
lailure to keep up with what that j
section is doing aptly illustrates the!
condition of tho whole country!
east of the Rocky Mountains. It j
has been well eaid that "Wall street
knows the price of oveiythiug andjyo;lr wiu ieave tbo l)ands of the
tho value of nothing," Wall street
which pets tho pace for much of
the J'ast, knows compaiatively
little of the real foundations on
wldch American development i'
founded and kuows but little of the
with which to.ejfend the line on to
tidewater on the Siuslaw river or
clear to the mouth of the river at
I'lorei,re if it is deemed btht."
It is intended to operate the road
by .steam, Although at some future
tune it may be electrified, if it is
deemed best to do so and if it is
found that the heavy trains can be
operated f-uccessjully with electri
city. However, 11 railroad is what
tho people want and it makes no
difference whether it is operated by
steam or electricity, just ho there
is an outlet to the sea and a mans
whereby the billions of feel of the
fmeft timber in the world can be
marketed is furnished.
In the agreement which is signed
by the subscribers to stock in the
enterprise is a clause wherein it is
stipulated that the road shall never
be told to the Southern Pacific Co.
It is also agreed tht a majority of
the directors of the road shall be
j ,esidents of Lane county ns also
; f- secretary and treasurer. It will
! be a local company and will be

So sure was the committee of
success of the project that the work
1 of securing the right of way for
the rosid was started some lime ago.
The committee in charge of that
part of the work haa pet with very
food success as far as it haa gone,
the fanners alon the proposed
route leadilj signing the contracts."
If the people of Eugene and
Lane county are iu earnest in de
siring a railroad to tidewater now
is the time to secure it, by subscrib-
