THE SUMPTER MINER
DONAN TO HURLBURT.
Letter of Regret on Latter's Re
tirement from O.R.& N.
MY DEAR MR. HURLBURT: Friday
is an unlucky day. I have seen, with
deep regret, the announcement of your
resignation as general passenger agent of
the Oregon Railroad and Navigation com
pany. It comes to me as a shock and
a personal sorrow.
The world goes on, no matter who dies,
abdicates or resigns, whether emperor,
king, pope, president or railroad official;
but your retirement from the position you
have so long and ably filled, Is a grevious
and not easily reparable loss, rot only to
your great transportation company, but to
Portland and Oregon, and the entire Pa
clfic Northwest. There are scores of men,
any one of whom may take your place,
but there Is not one who can fill It for
many "a long, weary day" to come.
I am not altogether surprised at the
step you have taken. The people gener
ally of this city and state and region have
shown d d scant appreciation of the far
reaching work you have done for them.
To say nothing of all your previous
years of faithful service in their behalf
when, In Februrary, 1897, you Inaugu
rated the movement for a world-wide ad
vertising of the Infinite riches of resources
and possibility of the Columbia River Em
pire, the O. R. & N. system was, as It
had been for years, in the hands of a re
ceiver, and one train a day amply accom
modated its east and west travel; Oregon
was hardly mentioned once a year in any
newspaper east of Snake river, and Port
land, Spokane and other Northwestern
towns were as dead as the deadest cross
roads villages In Arkansas or Missouri.
Within less than ninety days afterward,
the stories of gloriously golden opportuni
ties in "The Land Where Rolls the Ore
gon" were ringing and singing through
the colums of the great daily journals of
Salt Lake, Denver, Chicago, St. Louis,
New York, Philadelphia and Boston, and
their echoes were heard in London, Pnrls
and Berlin. Letters of inquiry, tourists,
prospectors and home and fortune seekers
began to pour in from every region.of the
country and of the globe, as they had
never done before; and the Incoming tide
of brain and brawn, energy and enter
prise Is ever increasing.
Since that time besides the hosts that
have found homes In other Pacific Coast
localities not less than 100,000 new peo
ple have settled in the grand regions of
Oregon, Washington and Idaho, immedi
ately tributary to the lines of the Oregon
Railroad and Navigation company, and
three magnificent trains dally each way
scarcely serve to carry the vast and grow
ing volume of Its passenger traffic. New
farms and new mines have been opened,
new towns have been built, and thousands
of new enterprises have been launched.
Progress, development and improvement
are visible everywhere, "from the moun
tains to the sea."
No small share of the credit for it all
Is due to you and your department; and
though you have received little thanks
from the benefited "dear public," rest as
sured you are one of the rare, rare few ,
who "will be missed."
I wish you, with all my heart, success
beyond your own most sanguine expecta
tions, In your new position success com
mensurate with your ablity and merit. I
cannot wish you more.
With my congratulations to your new
associates, and the assurance of my high
est regard and esteem for yourself per
sonally, I am yours faithfully for two
centuries. P. DONAN,
340 Sacramento street, Portland, Friday,
January 11, 1901.
