His ' h 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 TO SIM TIDEWATER 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 j rnl, trolled bv local cmital J v 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- ' liberally for the stock anu rais- ing the amount necessary.
