Railroads For Clearwater Basin President Mellen of the North ern Pacific railroad says his com pany will not build a line down Snake river in the very near future. He says the building of such a line would retard the development of the Clearwater country. This statement on its face might seem to he meaningless. The reason entertained by Mr. Mellen lor this conclusion is that the development of the district depends upon inter nal roads more than outlet at'this time. It is his belief that the de velopment ol the basin would be promoted by lines to Camas prairie and to Buffalo Hump, especially. He speaks, of course, of his own system and the district dependent upon his company. The relation of the O. R. & N. and Northern Pacific companies at this time is not materially changed from the condition of last spring while the truce was in force. The roads are still controlled by a Imard consisting of eight men who hold in their hands the destiny of these roads and all other great systems in the Lui ted States, This compact is the most powerful trust in the civilized world. There can now be no such condition as the spirit of opposition to promote railroad construction and contention for traffic on an expensive scale. The business of the combined railroad?, systems is now subject to a com mon management This trust may not be wholly detrimental to the business interests of the commun ity. The strife of independent roads might promote extensions for which we must wait under present conditions. It is, at least, certain that substantial business alone will now induce the trust to build into new fields. For this reason it de volves upon the people to build up the ountry to the extent that will Justify railroad construction as an investment. When the executive board of eight, ot whatever num ber may compose that important board of trust directors, shall be made to realize that the construc tion of more roads to and in this basin will pay the roads will be built. It, therefore, behooves our people to work to this end. The railtoad world should be made to realize that we have millions of tons of ore, timber, and agricul tural products that are now fenced in by geographical traffic barriers that can only be penetrared by railroads. When this condition is exploited by proper authority even the trust will be made an instru ment of utility in effecting our re lief. Senator Heitfield takes special interest in the promotion of the open river traffic route for the In land Empire. He relates the account of a number of meet ings held in Washington, I). C , last spring with Charles Francis Adams and with a number of interested senators. The his tory of the matter is very encour aging. Portland people are tak ing a united interest in the open river proposition now, upon the ground that a boat service will give cheap freight rates from all the interior to that terminal point. Charles Francis Adams is very en thusiastic in his efforts for this en terprise. He says Lewiston is sit uated just as Kansas City is. The river route to that metropolis is not patronized to any great extent; but the prestige given to the city in freight rate matters makes it the great Dade center for a great country. Mr. Adams said to the senator that an open river would build up both Lewiston and Port land. The Senator says the open river proposition is now in excel lent condition and there seems to l>e no serious obstacle to its early completion. The survey now in propress is the first step in this great improvement. The failure of the democrats to denounce the annexation of Hawaii was doubtless due to the fact that the vote of Hawaii alone enabled them to revive the r6 to t corpse. Bryan promised to take up the 16 to i in his letter of acceptance. Did he do it? Ernest McCullough, C. fi., states that lie is prepared now to take a few students in mathematics, surveying and mechanic al drawing. 132-1 Wm. F. Galbraith, Dentist, three doors west of postoffice.
