Eose eity Ultinfttely Great
est City of Coast, Says
'Idaho Falls Man.
-. "J am convinced that Portland will
ultimately" be the great metropolis of
the Paclflo coast." eald J. M. McGregor
of Idaho Falla. "and that doss not msan
that all tha other cltlea won't tow.
But she "has tha other . handicapped.
Transportation, after all la tha great
medium throuah which ciuea ar ouim
and countrlea populated.. Tou atart a
dollar rollina; anywhere In tha Snake
and Columbia liver basins," for thou
Band mllea eaat and north, and tt wul
roll Into Portland bjr Ita own gravity.
Mr. McGregor la ana of tha director
of tha Idaho Falla Pevelopment, com
pany. Ha la a cloaa observer, and
etudlea commercial condition, with one
nf tht moat Intelligent tnlnda In' the
northwest. He la an advertlaer of vne
northwest .In general, everywnere ne
toes, and naa no personal bla outside
of bla own apeclal Interesta In Idaho.
"Portland's trade territory, lncludea
not only thla and adjoining states, but
( t portion of British Columbia,
Timing and California, he said. . it
. .a a ainguiar condition in laci. mere
is nothing Ilka it anywhere else. The
.' improvement of the Columbia and Snake
rlvera era aa vital to you aa they are to
us. We feel cloaely tied up with this
city, tout It is a little bit difficult to un
. deratand why Portland , constantly
harps upon the bualneas of Alaska, Ha
waii and -other outalde countrlea, and
end a only about one salearaan . up in
our section where aha aua-ht to have 10.
I am not orltlclalng Portland, becaua
ana eenae now more travelers inn any
other coast city, but aha baa tha op
portunity to command that trade, and
should do it. It occura to me that your
capltallata would do well to Investigate
. the opportunities for" investment in our
section, and in this way atlll tie tha
' tnetropolla and the Interior closer to
gether. - -
"We have a great proposition' out at
Idaho Falls. We feel that Portland
- and our section are tied together ' by
-community Interests and we want the
' Portland business man and the Port
land capitalist to understand that there
... is no trade territory anywhere In the
t -wmwi oisies equal to insi ouervu uj
, southeastern Idaho. We have the best
' watsred valley In tha whole United
- 6 la tea. and there are actually l.HMxd
acres of Irrigated land In the upper
ensue river valley alone. ,
"Directly south of this million acres
come the splendid Irrigated sections
.' known as the American tails, tha Mini
doka and -the Twin Falla tracts, or more
than a- million acres additional.
"Now 1,000 000 acrea of Irrigated land.
and that hisjhly. productive, is more than
. you have under water In thia state and
in Washington combined. or nearly
twice a much as there is In Colorado
ana Montana combined, and even eeti
matlnathe nroducts of these lands an.
' Duallyat but f 10 per acre, that includes
, the fruit, which Vets from f 160 to 400
an acre; the sugar beets, which - net
from tltS to 1300. and potatoes, $100 sn
- "acre, -and then-you have a trade terrl-
tory for Portland which produces a
.net product of 160,000,000 annually, not
including livestock or anything other
i than that which come directly from
' 3th" land, and thla one territory alone
gives you an opportunity to double your
trade upon a dependable territory.
