Governor Brady Pledge Support to
Movement for Opening Door
From Interior to Sea.
Boise, Feb. 27. A state-aided rail
road from Dotso to Coos bay is tho
chief object of tho Oregon-Idaho De
velopment congress, which opened to
day, attended by 100 representative
men from Eastern and Central Oregon
and Southeastern Idaho.
Tho object of tho congress was heart
ily endorsed by Governor Brady, who
welcomed tho delegates. He said he
would pledge his support for any ac
tion which would give Idaho better
means of transportation and open its
, doors to reach tho seaports of tho Pa
cific Hq spoke of the growth of the
state, its wonderful development and
ts great resources, stating that it
would continue to grow and, even If
walled in, would continue to develop,
as it had all tho resources needed if
left to stand alone.
"But," he continued, "we want to
extend our resources into Idaho. When
tho Panama canal is completed it will
mean ono of the greatest freight rate
reducers for tho West that it could
possibly have, for at that time tho
great steamers from the bast will un
load cargoes at San Francisco, Port
land, Seattle and Coos bay."
He spoke of the situation of the city
of Lewiston and stated that he expect
ed to live to see the day wehn it would
have an open waterway to the sea and
the products of Idaho would float on
the bosom of the Snake and Columbia
to the Pacific and the commercial ports
of the world.
The governor stated that he would do
all In his power to further the move
ment and that some action should be
taken at once before the one line which
dominated the state had secured all the
best valleys and left nothing but those
of second class for a new road. He
closed by praising the Commercial club
and the citizens of Boise and stated
they would all understand the real
meaning of hospitality before they re
turned home. His address was well
received and be was given hearty ap
plause at the close.
wmUl by the governor, tomo h allowed to

"That is a consideration which has
no weight with me whatever. I am
