Great interest is evinced horo in the
numerous reports from tho Pacific Coast
rclativo to survojing parties at various
points in Oregon .ml California, Thoso
reports have bcori recurrent throughout
the last year. In mod cases they have
seemed to hint at undertakings engineer
ed by the flarriman lines. In most in
stances the Ilarriman authorities have
I taken pains to deny that they have anj-
thing to do with the project as outlined
The present report Is manifestly a
combination of two prior rumors, one
that a lino was being built through from
Salt Lake City to Coos 'lay, Or., and the
other that a line was projected from
Hurrk.i, Cal., through tho mountains
into Nevada. In tho investigation of the
San Francisco nport it baa developed
that both these prr jocts are still in ex
istence and that tho latter at least has
gol pro-pecta of being ultimately car
ried through to a conclusion.
It transpires that tho projectors of the
Coos Bay line have had the project in
mind for eomo yeara. Immediately after j
the purchaeoof tho Southern Pacific tho
plan was brought to tho attention of E. 1
H. Ilarriman, and it was proposed that
he assiit the projectors to run this line
through from Salt Lako City and make
it a link in tho Ilarriman route to Port
land, as well as reaching a terminus on
ihe Pacific at Empiro City in Coos
county. The project was investigated , Benton for tho Coast Land A Livestock
