He said lie would begin work in not le: s than six months and probably sooner. His request was granted. He also called thi! attention of the council to the fact that his franchise here pro- vided for the location of the gas plant within the city limits, and that he pre- ferred to locate it midway between Chchalis and Centralia. A vote of as- surance that should he care to locate his plant there that he could in__80 far as the council was concerned was given him. Councilman Tilly, who is also a Seattle, Tuesday, March By direction of E. H. Harrimun, the engineering departments of the Oregon Washington Railway and of the 0. R. N., both Harriman organizations, are preparing' to begin immediate construction of the new Harriman line between Seattle and Portland. Rush orders have been given to the engineers to complete all plans, which have been allowed to drag along for some months past owing to the recent financial dis- turbance, and to get into communica- tion with railroad contractors with a view to the assembling of men and materials on the right-of-way between Seattle and the Columbia river within thirty days. While the issuance of these orders by Harriman is known to his represent- atives both in Seattle and Portland, none of them will discuss the matter for publication. ,It is known positive- ly, however, that the sudden determin- ation of Mr. Harriman to rush the con- struction of his line in this state with all possible speed is due to the fact that the interstate commerce commission has practically barred him from pas- senger business in this territory. The ruling of the interstate com- merce commission is to the effect that as long as the Northern Pacific and Great Northern do not concur in pas- senger tariffs whereby the Union Paci- fic absorbs the cost of a ticket from Seattle to Portland, the Harriman road cannot sell tickets at the same figure between Seattle and Eastern terminals as is quoted by the Northern lines. On top of this information comes the statement from the East that the Un- a member of the board of county com-1 ion Pacific has issued a circular in- missioners, stated there was little j structing its connections in the East doubt that the board would give Mr. i to cease selling tickets to Seattle and Petley the use of t he county road. j common points at the former rate, An application for a saloon license i which included the absorption of the for a bar in the Centralia hotel was between Portland and Seattle. made and granted.

The attorney general after a confer- ence with Land Commissioner Ross, has decided to immediately bring suit to oust the Hammond Mill Company' from the waterway and thus test the question. If this case goes against the state, it means, of course, that the' railroads will get the right to occupy a strip of waterway 150 feet wide in front of their frontage and will secure this without expense.
