ROAD FOR N. P.
President Howard Elliott of the
Northern Pacitic, who has been in
Portland for several days, Monday
gave it out to a direct ttiiestion, il the
Xorthern Pacific was to be built down
the Columbia, that no road is to be
built by the No them Pacitic down
the uoith bank of the Columbia. The
company has no such pli.n iu prospect
and the move, though generally cred
ited for some time past as being one
to bo realized in tile future, is not

with it-) l resent plans, and, in fact, it
hail no building to be carried on in
that ten i. or;, the no. rest weak to be
startid being that in the Clearwater
On the way to Portland from St.
Paul, President Elliott nnd party
made a short stay in the Clearwater
region. The head of the roael explains
that the surveyors are yet seeking a
route for the Xorthern Pacillc branch
from Lewiston through the Camus
i'rairio section to Granger illo. It
will prove a diltlcult engineeiing feat
to reach Camas Prairie without a
heavy haul, but the road from Ripa
ria to Lewiston, which is being staked
off and will bo constructed by the O.
R. A X., to bo owned jointly with the
Northern Pacillc, will l e carried out
under more favorable conditions.
Mr. Elliott thinks the line from
Grangevillo, in connection with the
Eipiiria-Low 1st on connection, will
prove of vast importance to the resi
elents ot Eastern Washington anil a
largo part of Idaho, because of elimi
nating the haul from there by way of
.Spokane and placing them iu direct
connection with Portland.
In view of the positive assurance
that the Xorthern Pacillc will not
build and is not the company secur
ing the right-of-way now in the White
Salmon country,uiakes the game grow
deeper. Who is it? Will it lie found
out to be true that it is the Chicago,
Milwaukee .t St. Paul? t any rate
