OFFICIAL PAPER OF COOS COUNTY.
WHO OWNS THE WATER.
THE SAME ORGANIZATION which has already exploited the other
natural resources of the country for personal gain is now doing its
audacious and crafty best to secure control also of the water. And
unless the public does wake up-and wakes in writh sternly determined
to protect forever the remnant of its birthright-twenty-five jears will
add to the present peerage of Ironmasters, Coal Kings, Land Barons,
and Petroleum Princes a vastly greater list of Monarchs of Water And
an aristocracy qf wealth, based on H20 is more dangerous than any
other; coal, iron copper, and all oil deposits will some day be exhaust
ed: properly conserved the water supply will last forever and wealth
based oa its control will go on Increasing to the end of time.
To the myopic and indifferent public the idea of a few men getting
control of the, water supply and of drawing vast wealth from that con
trol will sound like the foolish wall of a crack-brained sensationalist;
It will arouse only a fatuous smile of ignorant contempt. But' the read
era of this magazine have heard of the turbine water-wheel ; they know
what is meant by the long distance transmission of electric power; they
are able to realize what it means to hand over, forever, as a free gift
to a little coterie of men the absolute control of the incalculable power
developed by the rivers and streams of the United States. And-pray
God-once they do understand the situation, they wil' not smile, but
smite. The Congress of the United Slates and the legislatures of the
various states are the danger points wnlch must b constantly watched
it the people art to be saved from spoliation.
When the first cost of a water-powc development and distribution
plant have beer met, it will put the richest gold mine to shame in the
potent matter of profits. In the latter case the supply of ore must be
continually dug from deeper and deeper levels; this ore must be crush
ed: and the gold extracted at a considerable cost for labor and mate
rials; and every night the mine-owner goes to bed with the fear that on
the morrow his rich veins may be pinched out into a stratum of wor
thless schist. The owner of a water-power, on the other hand. If the
water shed of a stream which he controls is properly protected-and this
work the people will be forced, for compelling reasons, to do at their
own expense, no matter who gets the incidental benefit-may sit snugly
et home, knowirc that at no cost for raw materials do cost of manufac
ture or for labor-save the trifle required for the upkeep and management
of his plant-his spinning turbines win deliver every day and twenty-four
hours each dav two, five, ten thousand horse-power available anywhere
within two hundred miles at the end of a copper wire the size of a man's
thumb. And In any market such power Is worth upwards of twenty
dollars per year for each unit. Most comfortable of all, the happy own
er of a perpetual water power franchise rests secure in the certainty
that, humanly sneaking, the golden stream will to the end of time pour
its forty, hundred or two hundred thonsand dollars a year Into the dis
tant money bags of hl3 most remote descendants Technical World

people, people whom everyone would delight to know was kidnaped, the
operator would soon attain to an idealistic standard of service that
would make him and his business a household necessity and a commer
cial Institution of tho first class, and soon lay all legal antagonism now
exlstant (owing to tho exclusive, and offensive, field now occupied) and
reverse tho attitude of socloty altogether toward the cult.
