Former President of Oregon Trunk
Will Hot in it to Turillc Const
Till Month, Ho Wrlles From
tlie Hast Where He It Now.
The Portland Journal printed tho
following story a few da)s ago about
tho builder of the Oregon Trunk lino
Into Central Oregon:
Will John V. Stevens he tho next
president of tho Great Northern
This question Is suggesting Itself
to n number of persons Intlmntety
' acquainted with the railroad situa
tion of the country.
Event of the past year point to It
as not nt alt unlikely that tho former
president of the Hill lines In Oregon
may l.ecomo head of tho Great North
ern to succeed Iouls W. Hilt, who It
is said has concludod to resign for
tho purpose of devoting his undivided
attention to tho direction of tho de
velopment of tho agricultural Inter
ests along tho Hill lines.
Mr. Stevens resigned from tho
presidency of tho Hill properties In
Oregon shortly after tho completion
of the Oregon Trunk lino Into Madras
last spring.
Itumor I Itcvivcd.
It was rumored at that time
that James J. Hill had suggested to
him the presidency of tho Great
Northern. Mr. Stevens, however, felt
In need of a rest, and decided upon a
trip to Europe for tho summer.
A few days ago the news reached
Portland that Mr. Stevens had or
ganized the John K. Stevens Con
struction Co., a $2,000,000 corpora
tion, with the object of handling
large railroad construction projects,
but Information received here today
is to the effect that while this wus
Mr. Stevens plan it Is possible that
an offer to head tho Great Northern
at this time would receive his con
sideration sinco ho has often ex
ptesscd his liking for the West and
the Pacific Coast.
That tho Great Northern Is plan
ning to pursue a more nggressivo
development policy than ever Is also
said to lie indicated by various re
cent moves 6f J a hie J. Hill, chair
man of the executive board, and It Is
said It would not be surprising to see
him secttre Mr. Stevens to carry out
such plans as he roa have tentatively
la .mind. It was upon Mr. Stevens'
leoommendation, that the Oregon
Trunk was built Into Central Ore ton
and which practically led to the Hlil
Invasion la Oicrou oa a large scale.
About to weeks ago It was re
ported thet reorganisation of the
Great Northern wis planned and that
President Gray was slated (or the
position of vl-e president with con
trol of all i.t the Great Northern
linos west i.i Havre. Mont.
I..nll !, Mad.
Gray den. el this report, stating
that he kaev ef no planned chanties
that would ilfect his position here.
At that tlw i'0 mention was nisde of
President I -out YV. Hill. It Is now
believed, b .never, thtt rumors of
Mr. Hill's inieatlo'i to resign ha1 lie
come ciiiM-tit an I tl'.it M'c wv
rise to Ike belief that a general ro
orsRMlzatli r was planned.
Mr. Stevens figuring on visit
ing the "iut and Portland mi rue
time this hi i nth according to letters
received bmw recently, und It Is con
slderod n .( at all improbable that
this visit will have more slgnlflcancj
than a frlenH cjII.

In the long ago the angel whose task
It was to lend the flowers, wearied
with his lalsirs. fell asleep beneath a

with Its perfume nnd the shade It bud
afforded him. bade It ask for any boon
It wished "Give us." sold tbe roses,
