methods. So far as can be
earned, it was the first corpora
tion to use the 'holding company
as an instrument of modern cor
poration finance. The first Met
ropolitan Traction Company was
organized in 1886, by Francis
Lynde Stetson, who was chief
counsel for Whitney and Ryan in
the early days; in 1893, however,
it was reorganized and started on
its real period of usefullness.
'Mr. Stetson,' Ryan once remark
ed, 'do you know what you did
when you drew up the papers for
the Metropolitan Traction Com
pany? You made us a great big
Mr. Ryan's phase happily de
scribed this corporation. The
Metropolitan Traction Company
existed merely as a depository
for securities which were after
ward turned over to the Metro
politan Street Railway Company.
It was the intermediary in all
the Metropolitan deals. The in
side syndicate would purchase se
curities or organize companies on
their own account They would
then sell these to the Traction
Company, and the Traction Com
pany, in turn, would sell them to
the Metropolitan. In this way
the deals were made, not by in
dividuals, but by corporations.
If Whitney, Ryan and their asso
ciates, as individuals, sold their
own property to the Metropoli
tan, which they controlled, the
transaction might be of doubtful
legality. But the Metropolitan
Traction, a corporation, might
deal on any scale with the Metro
politan Street Railway, another
corporation. As far as the in
side syndicate personally was
concerned, the practical result
was the same, for they owned al
so the Traction Company."

A. H. Spraner, the popular
Beaverton butcher, has just put
in an electric plant and engine
in his shop in that city, which is
a great convenience and at the
same time an improvement over
the old way of conducting busi
ness. The engine which gener
ates the power is a Model No 1,
eight-horse power and runs bo
noiseless and smooth that per
sons ten feet away cannot hear
it He has twenty-five globes
inside and outside his building,
which gives a beautiful light and
illuminates the store and street
in front as bright as day even
brighter. While this is a private
plant and intended only to fur
nish power for the machinery in
his shop and give the necessary
light Mr. Spraner has extended
wires to the hall and a residence
or two, thus giving the people of
Beaverton a slight touch of city
life. During the evenings the
light is turned on in front of the
market until 8 or 9 o'clock, and
people who are obliged to use the
sidewalk and streets at those
hours greatly enjoy the light
which throws its rays from the
shop clear across the railroad
track to the Bidewalk on the
north. Last Sunday night was
dark and stormy and people who
were obliged to pass over that
thoroughfare had to cling to
the fences and often found them
selves walking in the mud, for on
Sunday evenings the Spraner
electric plant is not running.
Beaverton is progressive in most
things, and now that their enter
prising market man has set the
pace, the people should lose no
time in getting light of the mod

LEFT TUESDAY FOR HONOLUIU
TIM Hawaiian Cirts Had a Great
Time and Return Singing Paises
for Everything seen Here.
Seattle, Wash., Nov. 23. -Mrs.
Edyth Tozier Weatherred and the
nine Hawaiian girls who have
been touring the Pacific coast
states, will leave next week for
Victoria and Vancouver. Then
they go home. The Hawaiian
girls came down from Alaska the
most popular excursion party
that ever went north. There
was a bit of trouble at Juneau
over drafts and tickets, but it
was a trouble shared by a score
or more of delegates who attend
ed the Juneau republican conven
tion. It all came up this way: The
delegates prolonged the meeting
of the Alaska convention beyond
any reasonable length of time
and found it necessary to return
home on the steamer Jefferson,
owned by the Alaska Steamship
Company. The Humboldt, oper
ated by the Pacific Coast Com
pany, had taken the party north
and waited 12 hours to take them
back, but at the last moment the
delegates and Hawaiian party
decided to stay over.

The old Reliable Corner
Up to the time of departure
there was no trouble in Juneau
in cashing checks and drafts.
But when boat time drew near
delegates found their checks were
turned back and the steamship
company would not take them.
The story of the refusal of
steamship officials to take the
drafts of the Hawaiian party was
cabled out from Juneau. What
ought to have been added was
that everybody homeward-bound
was in the same predicament.
There was a furious scramble
for funds before the Jefferson
sailed and everyone with a friend
in Juneau dragged him from bed
to get funds. It was abohemian
effort to get everybody equipiod
for the trip home along the shore
line is one that no person but a
suicide would attempt It is a
long enough trip by boat and the
walk home did not look good to
anybody. At one time a threat
was made that the delegates and
Hawaiian party would go aboard
the boat, move into staterooms
and negotiate later with the pur
ser. This led to the story cabled .
generally from Juneau that the
Hawaiian girls became figurative
stowaways. It was a narrow es
cape for everybody, and but for
a last-minute round-up a couple
of score would have been com
pelled to attempt that escape
