I.IStVISTON. MOUTH IDAHO. THURSDAY........................APRIL 28. 1881 Til i; NOHrURHN PACIFIC KAI1 ROAD. New Haven Daily Palladium, March 20 The financial columns of the news papers of New York, Boston and Phil adelphia have of late teemed with items relating to* speculation in the stocks of the Northern Pacific Railway and the Oregon Railway and Naviga tion Company. These storiei, divest ed of the coloring giving them by in terested parties, all go to show that an unscrupulous and powerful corpora tion has arrayed itself in hostility to one of the grandest enterprises of the present day, an enterprise whose spec dy completion had seemed assured un til! within a few weeks, and ono that the whole country was interested to have finished as soon as possible. This enterprise is the construction of the Northern Pacific Railway from Lake Superior to Puget Sound, and the cor poration which has suddenly assumed a hostile attitude toward it is the Ore gon Railway A Navigation Company. A slight knowledge of the situation on the Pacific coast is sufficient to account for this hostility. The Oregon Rail way A Navigation Company owns a line of railway on the south hank of the Columbia rivor and a small fleet of steamboats which ply on the stretches of navigable water above and below the dangerous rapids at several points on that stream, It. lias also a line of large steamers running between Port land and San Francisco. It has mon opolized the carrying trade of that en tiro valley and become exceedingly wealthy. The seat of its power is the thriving city of Portland, in the growth and prosperity of which place it is largely interested. The prospect of the early completion of the North ern Pacific Railway was anything hut agrce&blo to the managers of the Ore gon corporation. They knew that a railway on the north bank of the Co luinbia river would destroy their mon opoly by compelling them to divide the local traffic with a competitor, and to accept lower carrying rates on reduced volumn of business. Mora than this they saw very clearly that when the wheat, wool and cattle growers of the Columbia valley could reach a true ocean port by rail, all freights intended tor San Francisco or other distant destinations would avoid Portland und go to Puget Sound. Portland, at present the outlet for that trade, is situated on the left bank of the Willamette—a tributary of the Oolambia-twelve miles above the junc tion of the two streams and 400 miles from the ocean. A bar at the mouth of the Willamette is an obstruction to ships deeply laden, and consequently English and other large vessels char tered to curry grain are fequently com pelled, aller receiving part of the car go, to drop down below the bar and there take the reat of their lading from lighters. This involves extra expense in both time and lighterage and is no inconsiderable tax on the producers.— The bars et the mouth of the Colum bia are the dread of mariners. When high winds prevail a heavy surf dashes over them, and it often happens that for several days together no vessel of any kind can venture to cross them.— There have been times when an obser ver at Astoria could see steamers and sailing vessels outside standing on and waiting for the storm to abate, while several steamers outward bound lay at the wharf detained by the same cause. Nothing like this ever happens nt any port on Puget Sound. In all weather steamers and sailing crafts have free access to the ocean and are never delayed by heavy winds or dan gerous surfs. Such are the reasons of the hostility of the Oregon corporation to the Northern Pacific railway. If Mr. Henry Villard and his associates can, by purchasing enough stock of the company and secure a controlling in terest in its direction, and then change its projected route so that it shall here after be only an outlet for Portland to the east they will prevent the competi tion they now with good reason dread, and they will still hold in their clutch es the profitable traffic of the Columbia valley. But all that they thus gain will lie taken from the people who have long been compelled to pay heavy tri bute to this grasping corporation. The success of their scheme—If it should at least be successful—will be a griev ous wrong to the Bturdy farmers and lumberman of Washington Territory, and for that mutter to the people and government of the United States.— There certainly is urgent need for a national anti-monoply league when inch a scheme as has been outlined is egally possible.
