The Falls City Waterfalls to be
Utilized to Furnish Power.
It seems from' all indications
that only a few years more and
the Willamette valley will be one
continuous road of electric lines.
Already large firms are asking for
right-of-way, for railway tracks
out of Portland as lar as Salem.
Only a few days ago a son of one
of the presidents of an electric
street railway system of one of the
largest cities in the United States
spent several days iri this city
simply taking items and saying
nothing. Since then we have re
ceived information that gentlemen
now connected with the electric
lines of Portland have bad their
engineers at Falls City looking
over the water power there with a
view of utilizing it for electric pur
poses, and will try and run an
electric line from Falls City by
way of Dallas to the Willamette at
or near Eola, where the Rickreall
empties into the river, and there
to connect with a private line of
boats, under their ownership, for
Portland. Of course it is supposed
that the final arrangements will
turn out to eventually connect at
Salem with the Portland system.
; But it does begin to look as if it
was very near a sure f act that it is
only a short time until Falls City
will have railroad connections oi
