VILluVKD IN A NEW KOIjE.
Is auswor to a repetition o tlie
request of the Astoria chamber of
commerce for permission to examine
Iris plans, Henry Villard gives a repe
tition of his former answer. The case
stemls this ivay. In compliance -vvith
a universal demand from this section
Villard put a party of surveyors in
the field last May, having previously
told a deputation from Astoria that
he had the money to build the road.
Upon completion of the survey and
receipt of the engineers' reports, he
sent word to the Astoria chamber of
commerce thai he could not build the
lie supplemented his information
by lite statement that should others
want to build the road he would not
staad in the way; that to anyone who
would undertake the construction of
the road he would pay 39,000 per
mile; $20,000 in first mortgage bonds,
and $10,OQO in second mortgage bonds.
He further said in direct stipu
lation that the road would have to be
built in accordance with the plans
and K?cifications of his engineers.
TUe prompt reply of the Astoria
chamber of commerce was "All right;
wliat are these plans? let us see -what
we must do." So far all was square
awl buBitio6-like. Nov,- comes the
craw-fishing. Villard refused point
ltoik to let the Astoria chamber of
commerce ace these plans. Fearing
that its telegrams were not explicit
enough the chamber caused to be
sent him a letter making provisional
acceptance, and stating (what was on
the Tace of it a necessary matter) that
they would like to see those plans hi
compliance with which they would
Jmve to build the rond. A peremp
tory refusal to allow them to see
those plans has been received from
What construction can the people
tf the Northwest place on this? In
what light does it present Mr. Vil
lard? SuipoRC a citizen of Astoria
said U a builder, 4,I will give you
92.00Q to build me a dwelling house;
the dwelling to be in exact accord
ncc with plans' that my architect has
furnished me;" and when the builder
asked for a look at these plans the
citnteti sliould say, "No. sirl they nre
my plans, and you cannot and shall
not see them." the opinion of the
builder as to the citizen's business in
tegrity would be the reverse of flat
tering. It is not plain what Mr. Villard cx
xte to consummate by such trilling,
it may be that he hasn't got the
money to build the road, and all this
shuffling and evasion of the last five
months is to conceal his weakness,
but that could be overlooked or ex
plained. AVe can all readily under
stand how the resources of his com
panies have been severely strained by
the heavy expenditures consequent
upon the completion of the N. P. 11.
K., but Are cannot understand why
the president or that corporation
should descend to such miserable
subterfuge and evasion as wo have
