The (vertlxinK men of the Puciflc

tion In Portlund last week. "Truns-
Dortution and Colonization" wiw the
subject of an address by Kinaldo M
Hall, advertising manuiter of the O.

Mr. Chairman. Ladles and Gentle
men : The railroad is the most potent
factor in every development of any
section or country; it is the great
highway that brings the consumer and
producer closely together, and over
this highway the varied treasures of
Mother Karth are marketed.
Today there are a little loss than
215.0U0 miles of railway iu the United
Btates 4.'K),000 miles of rails enough
to almost make eighteen steel girdle
for the earth's oiroumferouce, and so
constantly is the railway used that
on boarding one of the splendid trains
of the New York Central lines or one
of the palatial Overland Limited
trains of the Union 1'aoilio for Port
land, Oregon, it requries ' consider
able effort to think of the railway as
wonderful thing. Jo thought U
given the fact that the highest skill ol
experienced engineers was callod upon
to solve the problem of location, mile
by mile; that the long bridges, high
viaducts and dark tunnels are the re
sult of careful thought and years of
bard labor on the part of engineers
and hundreds of others, indeed,
many a mile of the railway over which
a traveler, enjoying ail the luxuries ol
home, on the Union 1'aclilc, Oregon
Hliort Line and Oregon Kailroad &
Navigation Co., is carried at the high
est rate of speed, has been a weary
Problem for the surveyor and builder,
low carefully the latter road, for
which 1 especially speak, has been
builded, is best set forth in the state
ment that despite the fact that it is s
moutaiunus road that not a singk
passenger has been lost by deatn in
the last Ave years.

A glance backward and one U
amazed at the remarkably rapid devel
opment of the railroad and the in
tensely interesting chapter the story
of its progress unfolds. The Urst rail
way on whinh passengers were carried
was the "Htockton and Darlington,"
of England, twelve miles long, opened
Heptemher 27, 1H'2T. Ueorge Htepheu
sou, after many years of labor, con
structed the engine used on this
"goods" train, as it was called, bte
phonson mounted the engine and act
ed as driver on Its initial trip. As a
precaution against accident because
of speed, he sent a signal man on
borsback iu advance of the engine to
warn trespassers. Ho successful was
the "goods" train that on Octolmr
10 following, a daily "coach," mod
elled after the stage coach and callod
the "Experiment," was put Into sor
Aice, and this oarried six passengers
inside and 15 to 20 outside. The trip
was made in about two hours. The
fare from Htockton to Darlington wat
one shilling, and eaoh passenger wa
allowed H pounds ot baggage.

ter road was opened, an improved en
gine, the "Rocket," pulling the train
and making the remarkable speed of 2i
miles an hour. The same year, Au

into service on I lie Moliawk and Hud

the town meetings made the p red in

The advertising campaign carried on
by the railroads is so enormous that
but few realize Its magnitude. Dur
ing the month of May, VM, the ad
vertising department of the Oregon
Kailroad A Navigation Co. sent out
117,07(1 pieces of advertising metter,
and during June about 42,000. Those
went to all parts of the United Ststes
and foreign countries, and many
there are who do not appreciate what
the general nassenger agent is doing;
that is in advertising travel he is in
cidentally advertising all other com
modities; that overy new settler
brought into a community means a
new subscriber to oue or more news
papers, a new factor in the neighbor
hood and therefore a means of in
creasing every business ueoesriary to
supply hs wants.
r.ver westward has been the march
of civilization, and today the eyes of
the entire world are upon Oregon,
Washington and Idaho, where the best
of everything grows to perfection and
where there are more openings in
every line of industry than anywhere
else In the I. uited states. .No section
of the Union enjoyed such a high de
gree of prosperity as did these three
states in 1SX.H. While drought and
llood wore busy with their work of de
vastation in many parts of the oust
and middle west the fertile lands of
those three states, with their clocklike
regularity, hearkened to the husoand

three states this land of promise and
opportunity, where the suu of. pros

vale aud hill, and where bappiuess and
contentment are seen on every haud.
The spirit of progress is evident ev
erywhere. New homes, new churches
and new whoolhuui-es are built by the
hundreds every year throughout the

of government land are yet untuken

Would a starving nation save.

advertising that is constantly carried
on, the advertising manager s motU,
being, "the truth about the section it
good enough." Every piece of adver
tising mutter is most carefully prepar

the general passenger agent anil every

authenticity of the publication.

I am often asked about direct re
sults of our rullroud advertising, and
1 have no hesituacy In saying that di
rect results are often seen. This state
ment Is borne out in the following
editorial from the Hood I liver (11a
cier. Hood Kiver, Oregon, June 1,
It should be gratifying alike to
the people of llood Kiver and the O.
U. & N. to realize that tangible re

The work of spieading the truth
about our beautiful section is no
doubt made easier from the fact that
our environments are not equalled iu
the world. Only last week a well
known New i oi k newspaper man is
writing his paper slated that a drive
up Portland Heights uud a view of the
city below and the mountains above
would make a poet out of a butcher.
1 quite agree with him, for nowhere
iu the entire world has nature pictur
ed more beautiful scenes, eucompuss
ing the city, in the distance, with an
imperisable art gallery of verdure clad
ami lofty mountains. Journey to
Switzerland, stand on some mountain
and gaze o'er a landscape of lake, for
