There is an increasing amount
of eastern Oregon wool being
moved at a range of 8 to Mc a
pound, the top being a fraction
above what has been previously
oirered for similar goods this
season. Willamette valley wools
are nominally quoted at previous
quotations, but the amount avail
able for market has been so limi
ed that no regular quotation has
been named by the trade.
Under date of May 11) the Lew
iston, Idaho, Tribune says of the
sheep and wool situatien:
"The sheepmen who range
work, whose abililyas an organi
zer, whose executive capacity,
have fitted him admirably for
such a responsible duty. Mr.
Stevens, as is well known, is a
great engineer, experienced in
'oration and in construction werk:
he has been a railroad operator
with marked success and he
knows trallic. He has also seen
service as an executive. Resides
Ihesoqtinlifications.he is n shrewd
student in financial matters, and
knows the ell'ect of public opinion
as reflected in railroad legislation
and rate legulalion on the value
of railroad properties and the de
sirability of railroad securities.
The commanding power that
will rest with John F. Stevens in
such a capacity is only too evi
dent. He wiil be unfettered in
his operations and all railroads
and railroad projects will look
alike to him. He will be in a
position to say whether a large
railroad system is to have the
money that may enable it to
throw its lines thousands of miles
across the country; he will be in
a position to report that a cer
tain property will warrant finan
cial assistance if the railroad's
policy is changed.

railroad operation is, of course,
the Western portion of the coun-
esls in an official capacity, but lief- nml u m,L w,,,cl1 Va" Hl,'cet

Portland friends of .lohn F.
Stevens, fonnei president of the
Hill lines in Oregon, have been
advised from the Fast that he is
considering and probably will ac
cept a position in New York
which will make him the domi

of America. This position is that
of fiscal representative of the
great financial houses of Kului,
Loeb & Co., .1. P. Morgan & Co.,
and other heavy investors. His
field will be devoted exclusively
to passing upon railroad securi
ties upon which prospective loans
will be predicated. His word is
to be final in the matter and his
recommendation to the Wall
street interests will determine
what railroad projects, whether
new work, renewals, extensions,
feeders of branches, shall be
financed by the money powers.

The creation of the new billet
in the financial world has come
about, it is said, largely from a
suggestion which Mr. Stevens
himself made some time ago
when it appeared that the out
look for active railroad operators
was far from hopeful. Wall
street has been deeply impressed
with the fact that while the
banks have been piling up large
reserves and that there has been
plenty of money in the country,
it has been withheld from Invest
ment in railroad securities, which
usually are regarded as the safest
investments in the country. The
lightness of the money market
has been responsible for the re
trenchment in -tho railroad field
and the powerful financial inter
ests have felt that some means
must be devised whereby the
large money surpluses may be
put lo work on a safe basis.
The money kings have been
brought face lo face with the re
markable situation, namely, there
is plenty of money stored away
that might be available for rail
road construction, but there is no
public confidence in such securi
ties. This situation is said to
have brought about tho sugges
tion that some means musl first
bo found to restore confidence
and next that Wall street must
know what projects are tho most
desirable to finance. This, the
money kings discovered, would
require the services of a man
versed in financial matters, un
derstanding puliiic sentiment and
knowing from experience what
securities are good and what
properties are not satisfactory
from the investors' standpoint.
The matter was laid before
