Referring to your review of the transpor tation needs of the Northwest in today'i Orrgon.ia.ti, I desire to submit the follow ing outline , of a. corporation Which think would afford the relief demanded and at the same, time be a good paying investment.. , I suggest the Portland Railway & Nav igation Company ; capital stock $5,000, 000, divided into 50,00U shares of the par value of $100 each ; head office Portland Or.'; object to buy, lease, construct and operate railroads and telegraph lines in Oregon, Washington and Idaho, in con nection with a barge and steamboat sys tem -upon the Colembia, Snake and Willamette rivers. :. To build grain elevators, wool and grain warehouses and wharves, to be operated in connection with said system and to do a general warehouse business, To operate a line of steamships and -other sea-going craft between Portland and San Francisco, Puget sound and other points on the Pacifi coast. To construct and operate for toll, system of ship railways, locks, or such other, methods of transportation as may Tie deemed best in overcoming the ob structions to navigation on said rivers To dispose of said locks or ship rail- Ways to the general government at any time in the future, upon payment of the original cost of said enterprises, and in terest to date of purchase, and to pro vide for the expenditure of said sum in railway extensions. . . To purchase or lease, if possible,- the Oregon & Washington railway (Hunt system), making such extensions thereto as inay be deemed advisable, and oper ate the same in connection with river and ocean service. the advantage of such a system. First Absolute ownership in Portland, thereby insuring to this city at leant a just share of the trade of Oregon', Wash ington and Idaho. '- ', SecondSuch a system, with its-unlimited carrying facilities, would relieve the present deplorable transportation muddle and prevent its repetition in the future. - . Third This system, costing but about one-eighth of that of the Oregon Railway . & Navigation and being operated at a correspondingly low figure, would result in a reduction of at lenst 50 per cent, of the present rates. Fourth The assurance of cheap water rates would result in the immediate settlement and improvement of millions of acres of land in Eastern Oregon and Washington, the trade of which would be assured to Portland. Fifth Such a system being operated without any of the burdensome alliances or great corporate expenses of its most formidable competitors would be able to withstand any opposition," and at the same time give to producers of the In land Empire the benefits of iermanent cheap water transportation. Sixth For the purpose of securing a carrying trade other than local, arrange- ' ments might be made with the Great Northern and other roads approachinsr points on the Upper Columbia for the shipment of through freights 'to and from San Francisco. Seventh A pro rata law such as is in force in the other states, might be adopted by the ogon and Washington legislatures, compelling rival roads to receive and deliver freights at water con- " nections and forward the same for a reasonable amount of the whole haul, thus giving to all sections of Eastern Oregon and Washington the beriefiits of water transportation. Eighth Such a, system being operated by Oregon and Washington capital for- the sole purpose of earning a legitimate interest on the money actually invested, would be able to ' defeat any possible railroad combinations detrimental to either the producing or industrial inter est of Oregon or Washington. Ninth Such an enterprise would give cheaper lumber and coal, and better prices for grain and wool to Eastern . Oregon, and a valuable local market to Portland. . ' Tenth For the purpose of aiding the agricultural interests of the state.arrange- ments could be made for the erection of grain warehouses on the Columbia where grain could be stored and advances made upon the same until .such time as favor able foreign shipments were offered. COST OF SUCH AN ENTERPRISE. Pn re be MS of Hunt system Ut000,000 Ship railway, Celllo, est V. B. engineers 1,250.000 Completion of locks at Cascades. . 4.r0,009 Twenty steamboats, river service. .'. " 500,000 Two steamships (San Francixco service) 500,003 Grain elevators, warehouses, etc 100,000 Incidental floating bunds, etc 200,000 ,000,000 In summing up Jthe probable cost of such a system, I have allowed $2,000,000 for the purchase of the Hunt system, but as he might not be disposed to sell at that or any other figure, and as the 'I same results could be had through as traffic agreement with him,' that item might be stricken out.. The estimated cost of a ship railway at Ceiilo is $1,250, 000. This is a work that ought to be undertaken by the general government but for the purpose of giving the country the benefits of a speedy completion of the same, it might be constructed by a private corporation and allow the gov ernment the right of purchase as soon as its feasibility and value to commerce, was' determined. And the "same might be said- with reference to the Cascade locks. Thus the actual cost of an open river with an ample river and railway service attached would be about $2,000, 000, a very insignificant sum when the benefits to the country are considered, As Portland has "already expressed a willingness to invest $2,000,0000, in the Hunt railroad, (a minority interest too) for the sole purpose of securing indepen dent connections with the "Inland Em pire," I see no reason why it cannot take this matter up single-handed, and con duct a profitable transortation system just as well as Henry VilTard, Elijah Smith or anybody-else?" r Of the sum necessary to carry out ' such an undertaking, not more than twenty per cent, of the capital stock need be paid, the balance being obtainable through the sale of . bonds to run from twenty to fifty years. To prove that steamboating is not as unprofitable as he Oregon Railway & Navigation com pany would have us believe, it is only ' necessary for us to refer to the career of Captain U. B. Scott. When it is consid ered that Portland's wealth and com mercial prestige, has made the forma tion of such companies jxissible, as the Oregon Raihvay & Navigation (capital $40,000,000), Oregon & Transcontinental ($40,000,000), and Oregon Improvement Company ($15,000,010), I see no reason why a perfectly feasible transportation company backed by business interests of Portland, and carrying w ith it an assur ance of economical management and freedom from stock jobbery, could not readily float bonds in New York to the amount of $4,000,000. In conclusion I would ask how much of the grain crop' of Eastern Oregon and Washington would go to the Sound for shipment with such a system as this owned "absolutely n Portland f J. J".
