Railway Workers Launch
"Ship by Rail" Campaign
The 4,965 employes of the Union
Pacific in Oregon, aroused over the
loss of freight and passenger busi
ness to unregulated forms of trans
portation, have in the past few
months marshalled their forces in
this and every other community
served by their railroad, urging
their fellow townsmen to ship and
travel by rail. They frankly rec
ognize the serious railroad situa
tion which could easily result in
further cuts in local payrolls. They
are driving home the cold fact that
the prosperity of these communi
ties will stand or fall with that of
the railroad; and that the railroad's
prosperity depends on whether it
gets the business for which it is
constructed and equipped.
Pointing out that the railroad,
through the Union Pacific Stages
Motor Transport pick-up and de
livery service, now meets the fast
est and lowest rate freight compe
tition with the advantage of more
carfeul and dependable handling
by rail, the U. P. employes' groups
are getting a hearty response from
local merchants. Many merchants
have pledged their full support to
the "ship and travel by rail cam
paign. In numerous Oregon towns
the business men and the newspa
pers have collaborated in issuing
strong advertisements promoting
the preferential use of the rail
More than $9,000,000 was paid out
by the Union Pacific last year in
wages and salaries in the state.
This huge sum was expended in
Oregon by the wage earners who
received it, supporting approxi
mately 20,000 persons. Part of it
was spent with merchants, part of
it deposited in banks where it helps
keep Oregon business ventures go
ing, and a sizeable portion was paid
out in taxes on homes because 2,
262 Oregon homes are owned by
Union Pacific workers. Of the 4,
965 U. P. employes In the state, 3,
413 are heads of families. Taxes
paid by the Union Pacific in Ore
gon alone in 1930 amounted to $1,
361,196.49. It is not the Intention of the rail
road or of the employes to attempt
to abolish motor truck transporta
tion, according to the spokesman
for the employes and hte railroad.
They realize that the motor truck
has a field of its own in which it
fills a very definite transportation
It is the avowed purpose of the
Union Pacific employes, backed by
their company, to regain the busi
ness lost to truck lines paralleling
In all fairness, the U. P. workers
point out, shippers adjacent to the
Union Pacific can well afford to
patronize the rail lines and fur
ther, to support the "ship and
travel by rail" campaign. The Un
ion Pacific Is now running a series
of advertisements in Oregon news
papers setting forth figures which
demonstrate that the railroad is
one of the state's basic industries
and is therefore entitled to the sup
port of other industries of the
The railroad men base their re
quest for cooperation on the asser
tion that the rail service of the line
is adequate and dependable and the
experience of Oregon shippers
bears them out. The vigorous and
straightforward action of the rail
men is calculated to promotet rail
road employment and the stabili
zation of the railroad industry.

gart), Red Cloud (Sperry), and
Champaign (Blackman). Little
Dick won. Some kicks were made
against foul riding by Johnny Bac
kus, but were overruled. A trot
ting race did not excite the pool
buyers. Tom (Whetstone), Knox
(Carrington) and Black Bess (Ry-
chard) were the contestants with
two heats going to Knox and the
money to Carrington. Another race
which was a hot one, so the Ga
zette says, was participated in by
Tinker, Dudelin Buck and Butter
Creek Maid. It was an exciting
race and Butter Creek Maid won.
This race resulted in charges being
filed against John Backus again
and he was ruled off the track. The
Gazette then tells us that Johnny
Backus was later arrested for an
assault upon Homer Harrington,
the rider of Dudelin Buck. Backus
was accused of whipping Homer
on head and hands. It was furth
er claimed that Backus used the
whip on Jimmy Matlock, rider of
Butter Creek Maid. "If he is prov
en guilty of the offenses," pipes in
the Gazette editor, "he should be
ruled off the Heppner track for all
time to come."
At this time Morrow county was
boasting of opal mines. A Mr. King
of the Lombard Investment Co
had arrived in town the previous
evening to make an investigation
of the properties. He reported hav.
ing also inspected the opal mines
at Moscow, Wn., but that the Mos
cow opals were not to be compared
with the Morrow county product.
The opal mines were located in the
mountains near Hardman.

"there have been enough of them

illiberal of men are those who take
great delight in joining some so
ciety styling itself "Liberal."
