WORKING FOR THE WEST
"Thfe Government should d

Senator Borah, in a deliunt pro
test against the policy of the
faddists of the Pinchot sbhoo
Senator Borah has pledged
Jnmselt to support a measure
that will regulate the forestry
service, so that there will, be
less so-called conservation o
the forests aud more real bene
lit to- the settler. "Out of the
reform which Senator Borah
suggests, he hopes to secure .the
adoption of a policy by which
every acre of ground within the
domain of this counirv can tie
developed, and thus prevent th
migration of Americans inn
Canada." Senator Borah, lik
Secretary Ballinger, is of the
"West aud he knows the West
its requirements and its possi
bilities. Theories aud fads are
oiot given serious consideration
.by practical, well-informed men
of this tj'pe, and it is for that
reason that their deductions are
No. one from the West has
invited the Eastern faddists to

aud show us how w,e . should
jconduct our affairs but Oregou
especially, has been receiving
advice and suffering interference
in liberal quantities. In the
iattack on Secretary Ballinger,
in the current number of Hamp
ton's Magazine, one John L
Matthews is especially verbose
and egotistical in his assump
ions of knowledge as to what
js needed in Oregon. This self
appointed expert on the needs
of Oregon assures us that "If
.the Deschutes could be develop
ed along the lines I have suggest
ed, the Country would fill up
-with people and the increased
nassencer and freight traffic
.would very soon wipe out th
extra cost of construction."
Foe declining, tp elevate their
tracks to a point where all of
the value of tile water-level
grade would be lost, the jail-
roads are accused of being
"penny wise and pound fool
psh," although elsewhere in his
, .article Mr. Matthews states thai
the "old routes, .from San Fran
cisco North , circle tUe .base of
Mt. Shasta, after a heavy climb
in each direction, and make
.travel and ..freight hauling slow
and dpstly either way." By the
.new route through, the Des
chutes Mr. Mattheiyd admits
that It is possible to ounu a
railroad from the Columbia
.Rive to San Fraucioao with a
.maximum grade of but 1 per
Every one at all familiar with
the situation and with modern
railroad construction knows that
''along tho lines I (Matthews)
have suggested," there would
be ho railroad up the Des
chutes, and without a railroad
there' Would be no development.
The Borahs aud Ballingers of
the West have th confidence
ofthe Western people who are
predl Aiming this jaud from the
wilderneos and the desert. Ab
true Wasterh repreaeutatives of
the West, they know far better,
