-"The one thing needed to complete the pres

of railroad revenues. And to a small degree at
least, recent, earning statements meet the require

Northwest every section of the.'ountry Is contrib

of the principal roads for September show a small
increase over the same month of last year, during
which latter month those roads reached the high

tho fact that genral business at that time was at

WEEK IN SPRINGFIELD
In common with all the lead
ing central stations of the Uni
ted States, the Oregon Power
Company is planning to observe
"Electrical Week" from Novem
ber 29 to December 4. The big
plant here will bo open for In
spection all week, nnd tho. sub
station at certain hours, when
an 'attendant isat band.
Railroads serving the Pacific
Northwest, particularly the
Southern Pacific system,, con
tinue to show greater earnings,
says the Telegram. The enor
mous travel to the Pacific coast
set in early in the summer, and
although not in such large vol
ume as during the summer
months, passenger traffic is still
holding up well, and probably
will until the close of the Cali
fornia expositions. Freight traf
fic began to pick up during tho
summer and has been incheas
ing in volume steadily on nearly
all rail lines. Lumber shipments
are greater, and the bulk of the
wheat from the interior lias not
yet commenced to move.
According to tho Railway Age
Gazette, the operating revenues
of the Southern Pacific for July
and August was $14,595,497;
