This organization has secured the co-operation of the leg islative departments of the two states named, in a program f railroad development, f They secured submission to a vote of the people of an amendment to the constitution providing for state and district built railroads. ' In securing the adoption of that amendment to the consti tution the following named Portland gentlemen appeared be fore the Oregon legislature and made arguments showing the urgent necessity for the railroad amendment: William MacMaster. M. G. Munly. W. B. Ayer. C. F. Adams. Herman Wittenberg. Ed Ehrman. A. H. Devers. J. A. Keating. C. E. S. Wood. F. S. Stanley. J. N. Teal. A. M. Drake. Henrv Hahn. C. S. Jackson. They represent some of the largest financial, manufactur ing, commercial and professional firms of that city, This Development Congress next went before the Idaho legislature and secured the enactment of the Idaho district built railroad law. That law was drafted by the ablest lawyers in the state of Idaho and is modeled after the irrigation district statute which has been upheld by the supreme court, I he Idaho district railroad law provides that a district may be created by petition just like an Irrigation or drainage dis trict, for the construction of a railroad. After the district Is formed the proposed railroad is sub mitted to a vote of the people owning property in the district, If a majority of the property-owners so decide, all the lands in the district, in proportion to the benefits derived, are as sessed for the construction of the railroad through the district. Three directors or trustees are chosen by the property owners of the dlstriot to survey, locate and construct the pro posed railroad, If the people of the district prefer, the district can Issue bonds to build tho proposed railroad, the entire financing and construction being placed in the hands of the directors elected from the body of the d'strict. If the railroad Is built It can be leased to a railroad system of which it forms a branch, upon terms satisfactory to the district, Under this plan of a district-built railroad a torritory ten milos wide and fifty miles lone needing a railroad to market its products can build that railroad out of its own resources and upon its own credit if it sees fit. No property-owners land can bo included In this district without his consent, after a hearing in court, Undor tho Idaho law a district having 200,000 acres of land worth $10 an acre without a railroad can build a railroad through it at a cost of $1,000,000. Tho producitve lands of that district would advance to $30 an acre, which is a low price, Tho owners of the lands would have doubled the value of their proporty, and own the railroad besides. Owning tho railroad and leasing it at a good rontnl price, tlioy would probably novor havo To pay any interest on the bonds, but would derive a revenue besides, Two immense advantages will accrue to the land-ownors under tho Idaho district railroad law: First, the entire exponso of building tho railroad through their lands will be added to the value of thoir own proporty, as well as all future Increase in the value of tho railroad. Second, that thoy will always bo In a position to control freight and passengor ratos ovor tho road in thoir own terri tory, In place of tho land advancing from $10 to $30 an acre as tho result of building a railroad under this law in Idaho, it is more than likely that the land will advanvo to from $50 to $100 per acre along such a railroad.' Tho bonds on such a district railroad will be better than any other ra'lroad bonds because they have not only the rail road and Its earning power for socurity, but behind those bonds is tho entire population and wealth of the district, Tho Oregon amendment to tho constitution proposed by th's Development Loaguo would authorize the people to enact a similar law In Oregon if it works well in Idaho. Not only tho legislative power of the two commonwealths Is present behind tlio development program, but the executive powor has boon enlisted, Tho governors of tho two states were requested by this congress to name highway commissions of prominent citizens, who are to take up the details and work out the problems of state and district-built railroads. Governor Chamhfirlaln hflfnra eoinff in atkp. his sfini In tho U, S, Senate named the following highway commission to col-' lect statistics and report data to the next legislature thruogh the executive department: A. H. Devers, Portland, Drake C. O'Reilly, Portland, Wm. Grimes, Marshfield, C. F. Siwegrt, Portland, Geo. W. Putnam, Medford, Julian C. Byrd, Burns, G. W. Baldwin, Klamath Falls, Governor Brady of Idaho, acting upon the resolution adopted at the Boise Congress, .has named the following similar com mission to report to him through the legislature of that state: Geo. C. Shellenberger, Boise, Will H.. Gibson, Boise, Karl Paine, Boise, Frank R. Gooding, Gooding, J. R. Numbers, Welser, B. M. Holt, Caldwell, Pnrkfir V. Limns, finnrmll. These two commissions of prominent and public men, know ing the needs ot the two commonwealths tor better transpor tatoin facilities will not only collect data and report statistics but are authorized to recommend further legislation and desig nate such portions of the two states as in their opinion require railraod construction, The Oregon-Idaho Development Congress has a big task before it, of arousing the people to every possible means of self-help, of showing them the way to go to work to secure the needed legisaltion required to accomplish results. This congress has not only adopted a far-reachnig pro gram of deveolpment, enlisting the public-spirited men of both states In this work, but proposes to deliberately ut'lize the entire executive and judicial powers of two great common wealths to further its ends, SPECIAL TODAY At the Garden Spot of Salem New Potatoes, Green Peas, Turnips, Cabbage, Let tuce, Radishes, Asparagus, String Beans, Sweet Potatoes, Pie Plant, Oregon Berries, Our.
