NORTHERN MOIFIO HAS
PRT IS DEVELOPMENT.
Has nuilt a Boat landing and Ware
houses and a Spur From Pasco, and
Is Building a Million Dollar Bridge
Over the Columbia at Ttiat Point
Kennewick, Pasco and Hoover Are
Rivals Kennewick Is Growing
Rapidly and Has a Largo and lUcli
Farming Country Tributary to the
Considerable activity Is now being
shown by the Northern Paclfio people
in the vicinity of Kennewick, accord
ing to Architect C. E. Troutmnn, who
has Just returned from a short visit
there.' Regarding the preparations for
work on the north bank road, he said:
"The Northern Pacific now has a
boat landing about half a mile from
the mouth of the Snake, and some
large houses have been erected there
for storage purposes. Also, they have
a large boat there and bridge tim
bers and other building material Is
being shipped down the river for use
In the construction of .the new rond
down the north bank. A spur has
been run from Pasco down to the
river hank, thus making connection
with the boat line."
N'ot the least of the work that is
being done by the Northern Pacific Is
the construction of the big steel bridge
over the Columbia between Pasco and
Kennewick. This Is over a million
dollar Job, and quite a force of men
Is now at work upon the structure.
The old bridge Is being replaced, and
the traffic Is not stopped by tho work.
According to Mr. Troutman, there
Is now much rivalry between the va
rious little towns of that section, as
each place appears to think It Is to be
especially favored by the railroad
company and will be the coming
town- The people of Pasco are con
fident that their place will be the
Junction of the north bank road with
the main line, while those of Kenne
wick are equally sure that the termi
nus Is to be with them. Also, some
claim to distinction Is being made by
a new town called Hoover, located
southwest of Kennewick, but how
much Justification It has for claim
ing a position on the may remains to
In tho opinion of Mr. Troutmnn,
Kennewick will be greatly benefited
by the new road and will Improve
whether or not It- be made the termi
nus. The town has been growing
rapidly during the past three years,
and there are now over BOO school
children In the district. Also, the
country surrounding the place Is
adapted to a dense settlement, which
augurs well for the future of the

WOULD CONSOLIDATE FOUR DISTRICTS
During the past few days a move

districts and a part of a third. A pe

The number of the Helix district Is
56, and It Is desired to annex district
03, which adjoins It on the cast; No.
59, which Is on the west, and also
the northern part of No, 15. which
lies south of the Helix district The
Joining of districts 66 and 69 to Helix

NEW YORK LIFE SOCIETY
west Mr. Forgan declined to accept
New York Life Paid Hamilton.
James R. Keeler, clerk for the Title
Guarantee comm.r.; , formerly the New
York Security St iVust company, tes
tified to a payment made to Andrew
Hamilton of a sum of about 118,000
at the order of the New York Life.
This payment was made hi a rounda
bout way. The security and trust
company received the money on war
rants from- the Union Savings Bank
and Trust company, a Seattle or Taco
ma firm. He said the New York Life
held the debentures of this bank, as
the money realized, on warrants and
deposits was made to the credit of
the New York Life, or else was placed
In checks. The money paid Hamilton
was charged to the Union Savings
bank. Keeler was confident the pay
ment was made to the order of the
New York Life.
Keeler said Hamilton was paid out
of the surplus funds of the Union
bank, which had failed, according to
the witness, after the debentures held
by the New York Life were satisfied.
The balance, the witness said, was
turned over to A. R. Nichols, general
agent of the New York Life, who had
been connected with the Union bank.

Gnnc of Twenty Men Going to lUparte
A gang of 20 laborers In charge of
Chris Sorensen, arrived this morning
from Portland and left on the Spokane
train for Rlparla. where they will be
employed on the Lewlston-Riparla
branch of the O. R. A N.
The men in the gang are Italians,
Greeks, Scandinavians and Americans
and were laborers who have been em
ployed in helping clear away the
buildings and debris of the Lewis and
Clark fair. This Is the second gang
to pass through hero, one having
passed several weeks ago.
Most of the men are glad to get out
of Portland to a winter's Job and
three certain meals each day. as they
say each Job Is now sought for In
that city by half a dozen men. Many
professional tramps take advantage of
these free rides, however, to get out '
of Portland, and oFreman Sorensen
said to the East Oregonlan this morn
Ing that after the second day In camp
he expected his gang would reduce
by desertion to half its present num
ber. Bunk houses and straw are furnish
ed the laborers on the new line, and
the pay averages from $1.75 to II per
day, with ft per week for board. The
supply of common laborers has been
plentiful since the close of the fair,
and while expert powder men and
rock workers are scarce, the work is
progressing very favorably.
About 500 men are now employed
at different places along the line be
tween Rlparla and Lewiston, and the
grade will be practically complete by
April 1, It Is estimated. Some of the
work Is very heavy as tho grade hugs

must be cut away to make room for
