A EAILEOAD BUILDEE
Who Would Not Accept Any Subsidies.
Helena, Montana, March 7 18S8.
To-day Mr. D, "W. Small and
the writer had an interview with
Col. C. A. Broadwafer, the head of
the Montana Central road, the"
western extension of the Manitoba
and the local representative of
"Jim" Hill, as the great railroad
builder is familiarly called all over
the northwest. "We found Col.
Btoadwater, who is also president
of the Montana national bank, and
one of the rich men of Montana, a
very pleasant unassuming man of
business, about 55 years of age,
rotund and rosy, with clear eyes
and a partially bald head, seated
at his desk, in his shirt sleeves,
working on a pile of bank and
railroad papers. Dismissing all
other matters Col. Broadwater
lent us an attentive ear, and in
plain language stated the situa
tion. We found that the Colonel
knew our country, its resources
and capabilities as well as we do.
He personally visited Walla Walla
two years ago, and has since then
had agents there and in all parts
of Eastern Washington and North
ern Idaho, gathering data of all
kinds about the country. When
asked if he knew that Walla Walla
paid nearly a million dollars in
freights last year, Uol. Broadwater
said: "Yes; we know the receipts
of every station on the Northern
and 0. It. & N. from Portland to
Col. Broadwater stated that the
Manitoba laid 1100 miles of track
last year, that every mile of that
track has to be surfaced and bal
lasted and that all the bridges and
trestles have to be made perma
nent before the road will be in
condition for the great traffic it
will have next fall; that it is al
most as big a job to do those
things as it was te make the grade
and lay the 1100 miles of track;
that thp company has projected
500 miles of feeders that have to
he built this year, one of them be
ing to Butte City, about 80 miles
west of Helena on which a tunnel
a mile and a quarter long is now
Col. Broadwater said that it is
the desire ot his company to reach
the Pacific coast on the shortest
line with the least possible grades,
and that if the line carried the road
through a stefile region, with little
or no local traffic, the company
will build lateral lines or feeders.
That before beginning construc
uon they propose to thoroughly ex
amine all passes and routes, but
that they do not propose to make
their decision known before the)'
are ready to commence construc
tion; that to do so would give
others an opportunity to .head
It being suggested that Walla
Walla is prepared to give a liberal
subsidy to havo the projected road
enter her limits, Col. Broadwater
said Mr. Hill will not accept subj
sidies from towns and cities; that
to accept a subsidy is to give the
people giving the subsidy an equal
right to a voice in the management
of the road. He cited the instance
of Aberdeen, Dakota, which of
ferred 90,000 in bonds to the firs
railroad to enter the place; that
the Manitoba was built there first;
that the people began to prepare
the bonds and Mr.- Hill told them
to stick them into the stove, that
he would not have them. Edito

A VOICE PEOM TILLAMOOK.
Tillamook, March.ll, '88.
We hear that a corps of engin
eers will soon be in the field to
view out a route for a railroad
from Forest Grove, to your city.
Now Astoria is not In need of any
"taffy" from Tillamook. We
would be pleased to see Astoria
served with a railway, at the ear
liest possible date, whether it
gets there via. Tillamook or' not,
but your citizens seem to be pre-
fering the latter route. A close
review of the route as printed in
the Oregonian and republished in
The Astoriax a few weeks since,
is as complete a description of the
series of natural passes afforded by
the breaking away of the ranges
back from the coast as can be
given, without a special survey.
In fulfilling the duties of assessor
of this county, I have had busi
ness occasion to travel over
nearly the whole of it myself, and
am able therefore to endorse the
correctness of Mr. Hays' descript
ion. Of course I am talking for our
own interests. Yet after knowing
what I do of the comparative ease
with which a road ean be built
from Sheridan over this route to
Astoria, and after having read the
report of Villard'a engineers, on
the herculean difficulties that block
the way from Forest Grove, as
was made a few years ago, it be
comes glaring in its plainness that
to prefer the latter route to this one
would simply amount to a ridiculous
piece of stupidity, combining with
its natural drawbacks the fact that
it is a route that heads nothing
and can develop hut so little,
whilst this one would cut off and
carry away the immense timber
and other resources of five consid
erable rivers that empty their wa
ters into Tillamook bay.
Besides the business of the Big
Nestucca country, a stream th.it
divides the finest body of productive-
lands in Oregon, it would
cross the great South Nehalem, a
stream that is not a bad sister to
the Willamette, at tide water,
where it would control the vast
timber supplies that line the banks
for one hundred miles of this large
and winding river, tapping the
coil fields, a few nvles beyond,
whose early development, by the
ay, is a virtual necessity to the
growth of Astori.i toward becom
ing a great maritime port, and
striking into and through the rich
est agrioitltur.il area of Clatsop, it
u on Id greatly enlianc the growth
and prosperity of that county.
Tillamook county has now a p
ulation of nearly 3,000, or three
times what the census of 18S0
gave it, and which, at the present
rate, will double in a very few
3'ears. The traffic of such a peo
ple is certainly something of a fac
tor in railroading, when balanced
against that of a few possible hun
dreds. And, again, what a "grand
round trip''would be afforded by this
route to the pent-up, dusty citizens
of Portland and the Willamette
valley generally during the sum
mer "months, involving an after
noon ride from Astoria south, or
Astoria should do its best to get
at least a survey of this route by
their railway company.
