t STRENGTH OF THE WEST.
Secretary Shaw, of the "United
States treasury department, and a
members of President Roosevelt's
cabinet, in a recent address spoke of
the west that found no place in even
the imagination of the founders of the
republic. Washington and Hamilton
caw the importance to the new na
tinn of the great lakes and the Mis
sissippi river, but the west did not
extend beyond this stream until 1S03
and did not really include the Rocky
mountains and the Pacific coast
states until 1S4G and 1S48. In short,
the "Great West" has only been a
short fifty years unfolding and devel
oping. "Now the states formed of the oldj
northwest territory and the territory
annexed after ISO!! are the great
-wealth producers of the nation. Sec
retary Shaw poiuted out that the
west, which had no commercial or
jiolitical standing a hundred years
ago now produces 99 per cent of the
gold, silver and copper output of the
United States. 75 per cent of the iron,
75 per cent of the cereals, 65 per
cent of the sheep, 50 per cent of the
cows and GO per cent of all other
This is the raw material, but Min
nesota alone manufacturers 1G.O0O,
000 barrels of flour per annum, and
Elgin 3,000,000 pounds of butter. Chi
sago sends eastward over her rail
roads 150 tons of provisions every
hour, and the west sends forward by
lake 150,000,000 bushels of grain
every year. The Detroit river floats
four times as much tonnage as the
Suez canal, representing in numbers
of vessels a commerce eaual tr that
of London, Liverpool and New York
The United States paid 15,000,000
for .the territory included in the Lou
isiana purchase, in a single year the
states produce grain to the value of
?344,9G1,193 and the people hold real
and personal property to the value
And the Pacific Northwest is add
ing still to the reputation of the
"Great West." and rapidly forcing
recognition of its merit as an integ
ral part of the union of states. As

The action was brought under the
act of July 2, 1S90, known as the
Sherman anti-trust law.

Northern Securities company is a cor

5500 miles In length, the petition
goes on to say that they "were the
only transcontinental lines of railway

Mississippi river to the Pacific ocean
