DEVELOPMENT OF THE WEST.
For- generations the theory of
thinking men bus been that the Pacific
slope would eventually be the com
mercial center of the" world. They
estimated the time required to work
the change would be centuries. Re
cent events, however, have set the
movement going with great rapidity,
and while it may be several genera
tions before the predictions of com
mercial supremacy are realized, the
fact remains that the greatest trade
current of this or several centuries
now has its trend directly toward the
western slope of this continent. The
eyes of the world are on the Pacific
New and wider markets are the
need of the civilized world. Wuh
.America it is becoming an especially
pronounced need. Overproduction
has been the cry throughout, this
nation. The United States possesses
the raw material, the mills and
1 factories and the skilled labor, but
these did not save them from passing
through a prolonged and depressing
period of commercial inactivity from
which they are now emerging. . But
with another i evolution of the cycle
of trade such another period may
Those new markets are to be bad
in Asia and the countries that border
on tho western limits of the Pacific.
The imports of Japan, China, British
Australasia, British India and the
Straits Settlements amount to about
a billion dollars a year. More than
half of this is composed of articles
that can be produced in and exported
from the United States. The larger
percentage of such imports can best
come from the Pacific northwestern
states. The opening of the Pacific
markets is at hand.
Add to the possibilities of trade
with those countries and the in
creased market they provide for
agricultural and manufactured prod
ucts the immense mineral wealth of
the Pacific northwest, the timber,
the ability to build ships, the best of
the few harbors on the western shore
of the continent and the numerous
transportation lines, and you have
a land certainly strangely and mar
velously blessed. Is it any wonder
that when, last week, the various
transcontinental lines offered excep
tionally low rates of passenger fare
from the east to Pacific northwestern
states, eastern people were quick to
avail themselves of those rates and
are swarming into this favored
region in great numbers? "
The east is awake to the possibili
ties of the west. Here is a significant
item from the Chicago Chronicle of
"Over 300 homeseekers and specu
lators left ' Chicago yesterday for
north Pacific coast points. It was
the largest movement of this class of
passengers in the history of the rail
Toada, and it was due to the boom
expected on the western coast ' be
cause of . the acquisition of the
Hawaiian and Philippine islands."

my great joy and surprise, the first

continued their nse for three weeks, and
am now a well man. I know they saved
my life, and robbed the grave of another
victim." No one should fail to try them.

There ia only one way to care deafness
and that is by constitutional remedies
Deaf riess ia caused by an Inflamed con
dition of the mucous lining of the Eus
tachian Tube. When this tube is in
flamed you have a rumbling sound or
imperfect hearing, and when it is en
tirely closed, Deafness is the result, and
unless the inflammation can be taken
oat and this tube restored to its normal
condition, bearing will be destroyed for
ever; nine cases out of ten are caused
by catarrh, which is nothing but an in
flamed condition of the mucous sur
faces. . ';
