tory. It is reported that the Chicago

the building fever and will extend its
line to Portland, Ore. Denver is now
the western terminus of this road and
its officers have long beeu anxious to
push farther west, more particularly
into the fertile northwest coast terri
tory. An officer of the Rock Island
while in Portland recently, said that
his road inteuded to make that city
its western terminus. He stid the
linal survey had been finished between
Denver and Ogden and that track lay
ing on that part of the extension
would beirin this summer. A pre
liminary survey has been nude
tween Ogden and Portland, the dis
tance being 1,000 mile?.

There is little room for doubt that
extensioas by this company and by

Denver, bit just where the Rojk Isl
and will end is still a matter of con
jecture. I'Lese roads, as well as all
others that, rro no further west than
eastern Colorado, are handicapped for
connections to the coast, and these
connections, the Rio Grande roads and
the Southern Pacific, have been very
arbitrary in their traffic arrangements
to tue far western districts orer
which they have had absolute inonop
olies. The entrance of the Santa Fe
into San Francisco has also been a bir
factor in influencing its competitors
out f Chicago to jret their lines to the
coast. The riant 4 Fe is now entirely
independent of other lines on business
between Chicago and the east and San
