pleted a line from Portland to Rose­
burg and one from Portland to St.
Joseph, a few miles abort of McMinn­

ber of things, the Oregon Steamship
company, two railroads, a Portland
newspaper, a real estate company, the
street railway system of Portland, a
I wharf company and a cab and trans-
I fer company. And these were slipping
out of hie grasp. Henry Villard, as
toe agent of European interests, which
I had financed toe chief of Holladay’s
I enterprises, succeeded him in the man­
agement of the steamship and railroad
enterprises In 187«. The others had
already passed out of Holladay's hands

able to Include the former Holladay

the Southern Pacific System in 1888.
The Northern Pacific after many
I surveys and much exploitation, built
I Its first mileage in the Pacific north­
west In 1872-73, the line from Kalama
to Tacoma. Financial difficultiea, how­
ever, stopped construction which was
not resumed until 1880. Then Villard

the greatest revolutionary agent of the
time, and its problems are not fully
worked out The airplane too, we
think, bi bringing problems of its own.
