I A Final Word
TOMORROW IS THE OPENING day of the Oregon-Idaho Develop
Bay. It marks the beginning letter day In the history of Coos
ment Congress. It will he a redof the end of the isolation and re
sultant lack of development of the vast and rich resources of this sec
tion. Even If the chief feature of this gathering would seem to be
naught but talk It serves the purpose of publishing to the world the re
quirements and resources of this section. This enlists the attention of
men with money and later 'that means assistance. But the Develop
ment Congress is tomethlng more than a hot air convention. Already
It has demonstrated its ability and capacity to do things. One law on
the statute books of Idaho and another to be submitted to the people
of Oregon is an excellent record of the first year's work. It has done
more than this. It has taught the people themselves of the power
they possess but of which they were unconscious. It has by precept
and example strengthened the public desire and capacity for self-help.
In this manner -the Development Congress has borne quick fruitage,
it vin nrnmnipri thn frlnndshln of the Deonle of Idaho, Eastern and
! Central Oregon and Southwestern Oregon, whose Interests are In com
mon but hitherto lacked correlation. All these sections have promeel uy
the work that is being done but none more so than Coos Bay. For this

has been stated so often? There Is
there an empire to support a' city tho

In sweeping terms, rich In their
unexpressed details and heavy with
promise, the great engineer referred
to Oregon's latent empire. Mr. Ste
vens sees only big things, for he has
been doing big work for big people.
Central Oregon In his eyes Is a big
country. He sees In it the potential,
not the present. In the lonely
reaches of upland there Is rising an
other Spokane or Boise, railroads
hasten to tap another Yakima Val
ley, and the Oregon whent yield is
lifted from 14,000,000 bushels to
10,000,000 or more a yenr.

Oregon has seen for years, and he
thinks it idlo to repeat.
"If Oregon has seen these things
so long that the people are no longer
Impressed, and if your people havo
any doubt as to developments In tho
central region and the south, let
them wait a little while and they
will behold something to arouso
them," said Mr. Stevens. "AVhat is
the use of discussing details now?
A good railway will be built at onco

other argument. The railway will
do the rest."
