Mr. Ferguson, two of whose down

him, had taken them into the library
for a smoke, according to the New

been roasting me because I look at
the headlines in the papers once in a
while to see if anything important
is happening in the Thaw trial.
Well, the other afternoon, while
the girl was away, she put a pan of
biscuits in the oven to bake, and
while she was waiting she picked up
a paper and begun to read the stuff
herself. She got so interested in it
that she let the biscuits " At this
moment Mrs. Ferguson came into
the library for a book. "And the
joke -"of it was," continued Mr.
Ferguson, without a moment's
pause, "that they found the cow
next morning in a forty acre lot."

laughing till the tears ran down
their cheeks but not at the story.

"If Mr. Harriman has taken the
bond from the Union Trust Company it
would make no difference. The Union
Trust Company has obligated itself to
furnish the money, and it is the busi.
nest of its ollicials where they sell the
bonds to reimburse themselves. The
stock is in my name, and no one else
bas an interest in it further than those
who are member of the board of direc
tors, from which the executive otlicers
are alio elected.
"The fact that the Southern Pacific
ba a connection with our line mean
that road will get the business of haul
ing products of the Tillamook country
and intermediate territory until such
time a other road are built from Port
land to Hlllsboro, when it ia probable
the buaine will be divided. The
Southern Pacific would naturally be
pleased to ihoulder the expense of build
ing tbe connection in order to secure the
haul on that etuff.
"At tha same time it was possible for
the P. It. A N to connect with the
Northern Pacific at Scappoose, and
when the entire system is completed
such a relationship will undoubtedly ex
ist, for we will have deliveries to make
to both Hoe and if they can be expedit
ed by way of Scappoose, it is to our in
terest to form a connection.

Harriman ha the bond and it i hi

doe not own it and will not operate it.
That I certain. I cannot lathom the
reaentinent against Mr. Harriman.
"For the past few years a hue and
cry ba been carried on that Mr. Harri
man would do nothing for the develop
ment ol the state. He has been accused
ol drawing millions from Oregon traffic
and putting none back In tin shajie of
new work. Now. if he see fit to build
new line under tbe direction ol other,
for example, the Pacific Kailway A Nav
igation Company, why should the rest
dent ol Oregon object? His money will
go a far a any other, and I don't un
derstand the antagonism. What we
want in Oregon is more railroads. It is
immaterial who build them, o long as
the isolated region are given proper
"One reason why it is' assumed I am
acting for Mr. Harriman is because he
purchased the bond of the Columbia
Southern after it had been demonstrat
ed the line wa bound to prove profit
able.. The firt 27 mile of that under
taking were built with money furnished
bv a number of person. Subscription
ranged a high as $1XM), and it wa on
ly by the hardest effort that enough
wa ecnred to complete it to the 27-mile
point. Some experienced, reilroader
declared the road would never pay, and
they tried to how the Central Oregon
country could not furnish uliicient traf
fic to bring dividends.
