:Y Paul Shoup of the Pacific Electric
', Railway of Los Angeles was in this
_y- % city a few days ago In connection with
y ; the. extension of the electric system
;y of the Harriman lines. While the Har-
° = riman system operates to all intents
y; arid purposes independently of its
3 electric lines it ip known that that the
plan is to have the roads connect up in
*» one great" electric service that will
'.-.-rover the entire coast from Portland to
j .■ .'■ ■ • . - . .■■ .■-■-. ........

ELECTRIFY ENTIRE COAST LINE
The Southern Pacific has just com-;
n pleted an extension of its lines; from
S Los Angeles to Pomona and -is . ar
ranging for a service from Pomona to ;
San Bernardino via Rlalto. A branch 1
v road is being built "from Riverside to
"Coltoll to Hake the-place of ; the steam.
c line between those cities and there is
■» a. mile of track toy be-reconstructed,'
from Urblta SpringsT to Colton that will
complete the haul from San Bernardino
t . west. From Arlington the Pacific Elec
tric will build to San Jacinto, or will
* ° have to "face competition with a com
pany that has already made arrange
ments to get into this field. From San
Jacinto, or southeast of V there, a line
„.■„■.■.■ Is projected to San Diego.
0 The Pacific Electric, or the Southern
o Q yPacific company, owns the electric lines
3 *> of -San Jose, Fresno, Stockton, Santa \
."Barbara, and many other coast'cities.
The 'purpose of the company is to
celectrify the entire coast line from San
J o , Francisco, through to San Jose, Sa
linas, and then on to Santa Barbara
o° and Los Angeles. The old steam rail
s road will sbe entirely done away with.
00c° The connecting links will be improved
c c to the extent that heavy tracks will
\ " s put in and an arrangement for a
10 hour service, between this city arid
t f Los Angeles will not be a thing,
the very distant future.
.„ i MERGER SLIT DELAYS PLANS
s ° o During recent conferences in San
Francisco, - and other conferences Yin
Los-Angeles, between Harriman system
officials,' it was decided that*-an all
0 electric system would be necessary to
offset the competition that the coast
~.<._'; route would sooner or later 'have £to
„ i ace. * The question was whether it
■":7 was advisable for the Harriman lines
■7 2 to make an announcement of- their
plans. It was - decided that it .might
'■%,, fake 'considerable time and expendi
lure of much money before the system
..■■ , i hat has'been*the dream and ambition
■y*j\ «•' .Mr, Shoupy.who "is.general manager
of the Pacific Electric, and all its
kindred systems, 'could be realized. "
At this particularly important period
• j ,"Xhe unmerging, * suit -. against the
Southern, Union and Central Pacific
" /railroads came up. Plans were tempo
' :y.° rariiy; upset, but Judge Lovett said
that* the plans as outlined by General
* Manager Shoup were good and that
V-. when it became a possibility to sep
arate the electric arid .-"team roads from
the management in New York and San
and SCO and place them under sep
arate . controlV it might be possible"- to
bring about the desired end the all
electric coast route.
HILL TURNING TO ELECTRICITY
At the .Los Angeles conference it was
decided that the time .had come when
electric power would be the motive
.power for railroads that .would-best
serve the public interest.; Everything
r'7 south of ,Eos Angeles will within the
next year or more be electrically,. oper
ated. Everything north 'of Los An
geles: will have the same trend, y From
Portland to Eugene, on the line of the
Shasta route/the Hill interests have
•*, installed the Oregon Electric and y they
are working southward. The "Harriman
interests have acquired water power
-> rights ou this same line and have mad.?
extension into Klamath. Falls that y will
soon be electrified. From Grants Pass
to Gold Beach/in Oregon, both Hill and
Harriman have been ,j fighting , : for
