THE SQUEAL OF THE RATE HOG
T" OUI) nnd lugubrious is. the Avail of Portland over the
- decision of the interstate commerce commission giv
ing Astoria terminal rates nnd placing the Columbia river
basin on a parity vvtli Puget sound. The Portland idea of
upbuilding a ocnnnonwealth iR to .secure preferential rales
for Portland over every other section of the state to con
centrate development at Portland and tliereby throttle it
The result of this policy was to direct commerce to
Puget Sound from its logical distributing channel the
Columbia river. The reaction following has ma(je Port
laud the lajftfnrd among coast citits. 'Portland deserves
no sympathy she is getting a doge of her own medieuie.
Combined with the rate hog policy was the equally
short-sighted policy of withholding financial assistance
from Oregon development projects. Portland capital has
flowed in an unremitting stream into Portland skyscrap
ers, Portland itjnlty speculations and Portland paved high
ways, but there has been little attention paid to develop
ment of the national resources of Oregon. An occasional
joy ride to secure moVe jobbing business sums up the co
operation extended by the metropolis. Our foivsts stand
uncut, our mines remain unproducing, our varied natural
Portland lacks enterprise, lacks originality, lacks initi
ative. She fails to take advantage of her opportunties.
She waits for others to do what she should herself accom
plish and then blames others for not doing it. She should
finance her own steamer lines. She should finance rail
road building. She should reach after business as Seattle
is doing. Hut the only reauhing she does is to prevent a
square deal to the small towns of Oregon.
President Louis Hill told the Portland business men
some unpalatable truths. He said they were asleep at the
switch and the Hill interests had ceased railroad building
in Oregon because Portland capital failed to take advan
tage of opportunity offered to develop the state, but left it
to a few railroad people and warned them that rival cities
would wrest away much of the business already held, lie
censured the lack of enterprise shown by grain men in not
building elevators and flour mills, by lumbermen in mar
ket ing products and by bankers, who are all content with
what they have and "do business along old lines."
Tho report of the state bank superintendent shows ui
Portland lias I8 per cent of the total banking capital of
Oregon and 55 per cent of the deposits of the state Yet
little of this capital is used to upbuild the state. It is left
to San I'Yancisco, Seattle. Spokane money, even Chicago
and New York money. Portland has little faith in the
future of the slate.
When President I Till states, these facts in the vain hope
of arousing the metropolis from its lethargy, they are
received with due respect by the press, but when the coun
try press calls attention to the same facts they are accused
of " fomenting discord."
