In place of November 13. It was formerly announced that The Statesman's
great $2500 contest would close November 18, but owinj to the numerous
requests of a majority of the candidates concerned It nas been deemed ad
visable to prolong the contest two weeks. Hp one has 'yet such a decided
lead that the two extra weeks will make any difference in the oleoma of
the contest. The results nave been very satisfactory to The Statesman, and
so far as it is concerned it would prefer to have the contest close Novem
ber 18. Below aro two of the many loiters which have been received by the
manager of the contest department, asking for a continuance of the contest.
It seems that only one or two candidates tooi a decided interest in this
affair up to threo weeks ago, and tho3e few did not eet such a decided lead
that a difference of a week or two will place them at any disadvantage.
The Contest will Positively
Close Saturday Night,
No further continuance will be made all candidates may rest assured of
that. No matter whether the entire number of candidates desire another ex
tension, it will net be made, a's The Statesman does not feel it would be fair
to those whe entered the race on the start to keep putting off the closing
from week to week. Therefore it i3 panitively asserted that this contest will
closa on Saturday, December 2. Get all the votes you can in the meantime.
One of the reasons for making this cxteasioa so tLa candidates would
have the opportunity of seeing their country friends. There are many friends
and relatives living in ether places wha can be called upon to subscribe
and who will do so if civeu ample time to turn In their subscriptions. ,Now
that tho contest will close De ccmber 2, in place of November 18, there ar
six weeks remaining, and this will giro all an equal chance to see every
friend and relative in the dountry and get the votes on' the subscriptions, s
Don't put off getting: your votes un
til the last week.
but bring in your subscriptions as soon as ponsible. The extra vote offers '
are not to be overlooked by-any means, as every ballot counts. Tho house
and lot valued at $1500 is going to ba given to some one, and it may as well
be you as a competitor. With six weeks still remaining you can get a great
many votes, and the extra time will 1:3 to your advantage.
The contest department will be glad to help candidates in any way

J. A. Malcom, Mgr. Contest DeparU
ment, Salem, Or.: . '
My Dear Sir I am cne of the lead
ing candidates in your contest from
Salem and I desire to ask if you can
not extend the contest ; for two :vt
three weeks longer than the scheduled
time November 18. I have so many
friends whom I desire to see and who
I know will subscribe if I can only get
an opportunity to see them. Many of
my friends live in. the country, and as
I can not get out there every day I
would appreciate it very much if you
could arrange with the management of.
The Statesman to prolong the contest.
I have talked to several of the candi
dates in my and other districts, and
they are all anxious to have you ex
tend it. I think you could do this and
be fair to all of us, as each one will
have the same opportunity the last two
weeks. Not one of the candidates en-J
tered the contest with much determina
tion until a couple of weeks ago, and
as the time is so limited from now un
til the end It means that we will not
have the opportunity of seeing more
than half our friends, and thus lose
many votes. i " ' ' ' '
Trusting that you will be able to ar
range this extension, which Is the de
sire of. a majority of the candidates in
my district, at least, I am, - .
Tours very truly,

J. A. Malcom, -Mr. Contest Depart-
ment, Salem, Or.:
My Dear Sir I have just become
thoroughly interested in The States
man's house and lot contest and it is
now: over half - over. Other candidates
in my district feci that the time for
setting votes i& too limited; not giving
us an opportunity to see our friend
and solicit subscriptions from them. If i
I get a. petition signed by a majority'
of the candidates to have the contest
extended two or three weeks would you
consent to prolonging it? I think it
would be fair to" one and all, as we.
would all have the same opportunity to
get votes the last two weeks. The
way it is now I do not have an equal
show with the other candidates, as ,
many of my friends live in Portland,
Eugene and other cities. I feel sure
tnat other contestants in this district
feel the same as I do about this propo- ,
sition, and if you can arrange to have
the contest close about December 2 or
7 I think It would be a great help to
all concerned, as we would then feel
that we had an equal show.
I am working very hard now, but do
not feel like going ahead until I know
your decision in the above matter. .If
you want me to I will get up a petition
fcr an extension,' which I know' tho
majority of the candidates will sign. ,
Yours very truly. y .

OREGON CITY, 0 Oct. 20. (Spec
ial) After a conference in this city
with Messrs. Rhodes. Siukler and lint
thee, bankers of Philadelphia, W. P.
Hawley, a local capitalist, manager of
the pulp and paper plant, made the
statement that eastern capital was pre
paring to build an electric "railway be
tween Portland and Roseburg, the first
suction running from Pprtlafld to Sa
lem, running south on the west side
of the .Willamette valley to a point be
tween Hubbard aod Aurora, an bring
ing the river to a point on the east
side, thence to .Salem. Tarough the
rich country south of Salem on the
west side of the valley, it is proposed

it is said that the plans of the back

which extends from Reno. Ncv., to Al

Consolidated street system, recently
purchased and reorganized by the' S-ligmn-Clarke
syndira V of . Philadelphia
and New York. The entire plan of
operations as outlined in the above is
said to be one of the schemes for the
invasion of the west by the Goulds.

Statesman's Attitude Confirmed. N
The above dispatch, which comes by
the Assof iated Press to Tho Statesman,
istmly confirmatory of the series of
irticle which has been published in
The Statesman for the past two month.:

As an evidence that these mean busi
ness and that the road will not be built
upon paper alone, it develops that tfiey
are buying up all of the electric light
and power plants all along the proposed
route, and the fact that they have tak
en over the Eugene-Springiield' plant
ives color to the belief, although yet
unannounced, that it is the intention
of extending on as far south as Ku
gene, at, least, and perhaps fartherT A
.leal has also just been closed whereby
these interests hare taken over the Al
It is understood, although as yet un
confirmed, that a deal has practically
been closed by which the plant of tje
Union Light tc Power Company, with
headquarters at Aurora, will be ab
jorbed in a few days. This latter com
pany owns extensive Water power
rights on Silver creek, jwhich, taken
together with what te people back of
the local plant, principally the firm of
Rhodes Sinkler & Butcher, a large
banking institution . of Philadelphia,
Control on the Santiam will give them
sufficient power to operate any railroad
system which they might contemplate,
besides local light and power systems.
When approached for other contem
plated elcctrie lines in the valley, Man
ager Welch preferred not to discuss
those plans, Ju ventured the informa
tion that the company desired first to
.jet the Salem-Portland project out of
the way before taking anything else
up in a definite way. It, is certain,
however, that other lines, reaching out
in different directions from this city,
ire in prospect and that preparations
ire beiug made for the consummation
f such deals, procuring right of way
privileges, efe, but little progress is
'.eing made upon them for the reason
that greater attention is being paid to
the Portland road. A meeting of the
'people of Woodburn will be called for
Monday night of next week when the
proposition of the concession of ter
minal grounds for the line at that place
will be presented fhem.
' In confirmation of the survey be
tween tiiij eitv and Port I. -ind the Cot-
Surveyors are running a line for an
eWtric line to connect . Salem with
Portland. B. B. Merrick and a crew
of six men arrived' at Gervais Wednes
day night, having located a line from
Salem to this point.
It does not follow any of the previ
ously surveyed rontes. It is proposed
to make it as direct a rote as possible.

certain that railroads will be built and
that in the very near future, The
latest move to be publicly announced
in that connection is a proposed line

from Rosebur)? and Terminate at Port
land. This line is projected by Presi
dent T. K. Sheridan of the lionet urg
National bank, and the general suppo
sition is that the George Could inter
ests are ebind him. Mr. Sheridan has
already petitioned the Portland city
council ior the privilege of constract
ing a line of railroad on Front street
hi that city, which leads to the tonclu
sioa that it is the intention of enter
ing Portland by. that route in the event
of the constrnetton of the road.
There is-a difference of opinion as
O the interests back of this scheme,
for, while it is suggested that it is
(iould, or' some other powerful finan

belief, in railroad circles, is that the
