Editor, Oregon City Courier; Can I
interest you in a letter frotn Michigan ?
It ie a much older state than Oregon,
with the exception of the Northern part
it is thickly settled, but that part al
though the soil is not of the most invit
ing character, is fast going into the
hands of actual settlers.
The upper peninsula is noted for its
wealth of iron and copper; the lower
peninsula for its coal and salt and its ex
tensive agricultural resources. We have
many fine educational institutions, the
University of Michigan ranking first.
We have fifteen eugar factories in the
state, but we are short of help to grow
enough beets to run them up to their
full capacity. The Western border
along Lake Michigan is called the fruit
belt. Here most of the peaches and
small fruits are grown for the markets,
also apples, plums and pears. Fruit is
grown to some extent all over the state,
Our soil varies from a heavy clay and
some h'rtk sand to a light sand; ot the
latter we have plenty in all parts of the
state but with cure most canbe made
Wheat, oats, corn and hay are the
staple crops, alihouah the soil is well
adapted to other grains as well as a
variety of vegetables. Lumbering here
is a thing of the past. The pine is near
ly all cut and the html wood will soon
be as scarce as thu pine, outside of the
coal and roppt-r mining industry. The
daysol making big foi tune in Michigan
have gone by unlets it should be by
means of Ibe sugar factories. There is
some money for the farmers in e ugar
beets could they net their help at a
reasonable price. Boys and girls from
12 to 16 years old are paid from $1 to
1.50 per day in the beet culture and
wages on the farm ranges from $18 to
$22 per month.
Grain, hay and meats are about the
same price as in Oregon; butter and
eggs are 4 to C cents lower. Our winters
are long with generally two months of
surging cold weather, but of late years
very little snow falls. We always ex
pect from four to six weeks of rain mix
ed with snow in the fall, and the spring
opens up with about the same kind of
weather for about the same length of
time. Our summers are usualy hot and
often very dry, last summer being a rare
I am very much interested in Oregon,
having a sister, Mrs. W. 0, Williams, a
native of Michigan, residing near your
city. I am always pleased to learn of
everything favoring the prosperity of
your beautiful city that appears to me
strong, healthy, vigorous and growing.
I beliet e the Willamette valley to be a
very grand region ol country and one of
the most fertile spots to be found in any
part of our broad land. Besides Oregon
lias within her border! a very large area
af agricultural land that is of almost
wonderful fertility and productiveness.
My information comes from men of
character that have traveled in Oregon.
The state is well located for commerce.
I beleive there is a great amount of
wealth stored in those ranges of iiioun-
tains that energy and enterprise will in
time reveal would say with all the re
sources now in si'ht there is a grand
future in waiting, for Oregon, I would
say to the good people of the state never

tiogs of country you believe to be more
favored, not even Michigan, and should
any ol my neighbors or friends that
have a desire to change their location,
oy leaving Michigan and there are many
that do, from what i have learned.
I have been getting a few Oregon
papers of late, I find their editors up-to-date,
rhey are helping to deelop the
resources of the state. They are helping
the towns and cities where their papers
are published and show a lite ary tal
ent equal to any in the country. I read
the advertisements of your business
men with ink-rest. They all seem to
to have a good budineus intellect. Judg

diameter of the people and the natural
reources of the country, I believe that
