Chicago-, 111., March 25. (Special)
The awakening of interest Jn the larg
er eastern centers of population in ir
rigation and development possibilities
of the west and the southwest Is evi
denced by an interview with Judge C.
F. Fishback, an irrigation authority,
which recently was sought and given
space in the New York Sun. Mr. Fish
back is Ihe chairman of the Chicago
board of, control of the Nineteenth
National irrigation congress, to meet
here this year, and it was In this
capacity that he spoke for the New
York ra;ier. . .
Mr.' Fishback was described as hav
ing arrived in New York on, the crest
of a wave of optimism, and In his tallt
he touched upon financial conditions
in the west, the reciprocity measure,
the Chicago Association of, Commerce
trade expansion tour of the orient and
the Importance to both Chicago ami
the country as a whole of the Irriga
tion congress this year. 'J .:
"Financial conditions in the. west
are on the mend.', he is quoted, "and
everybody recognizes that since Janu
ary 1 there has been an upward trend.
The market for bonds on, the natural
resources of the country has improved
remarkably, and is still Improving. I
never have known a better outlook In
this direction than there Is today, j
"The Chicago Association of Com
merce, which has lent , Its support to
the work of the National Irrigation
congress, is about to send a party of
its members to China. This movement
is in line with the great Interest which
Chicago is taking In deveIoplng not
alon the resources and commerce of
our own west, but the orient as well.
"The outlook for the development of
the arid lands of the west has never
been better. Many persons do not ap
pear to realize that the government Is
spending f48.000.000 in the develop
ment of huge Irrigation enterprises in
arid land states in addition to the tre
mendous expenditures already made.
The Importance of this work Is illus
trated by the fnet that President Taft
is to address the Irrigation congress
this year, this being the first time the
organization ever has been promised
the privil-ge of having the president
for Its guest. V
"The work of interesting the people
of the United States In this convention
would seem to be a matter of superer
ogation for all the newspapers of the
country, practically- speaking, have
from time to time been generous In
their treatment of accounts concern
ing the relation of Increased develop
m nt to the cost of food stus'and so
on. The congress will probably at
tract the attention of half a million
people In Illinois alone this year. Far
mers, merchants 'and manufacturer,;
have nothing but confidence In the
general out look for the year."
Mr. Fishback, who is a partne-r '.u
one of the hi? linnrt hnnspa nf t'io
j country, has lived In California. New
(York and Chicago and is capab'o of
Ven observations, both because of
his business training and his travels
Recently he left Chicago to Bpeud i
month In England aa personal mis
sionary of the Irrigation congress.
