Immigration and Irrigation Go Hand
In Hand Turn on the Water
Few people in Baker City or Baker
county, or for that matter In Oregon.
to say nothing of eastern people in
general and those who are looking to
the northwest for homes, In particu
lar, are aware of the fact that the
strongest lands known in the United
States the lands that will stand cul
tivation year in and year out without
expensive fertilization or rotation of
crops, are the lands in Eastern Ore
'gon when once they have water on
them, but, this is the plain fact, sus
ceptible to proof in abundance.
A gentleman of experience yester
day said to a reporter that he thought
it very strange that there was so
much apathy upon the subject of ir
rigation amongst the people of East
ern Oregon. He spoke in the strong
est language of the splendid lands
here and the facilities at hand for
Irrigating them through combined ef
forts with the present movement on
tho part of the general government
and expressed the hope that sufficient
Interest might be excited amongst
property owners and business men to
take the necessary steps In order to
receive the advantage offered freely
by the agricultural department under
the recent act of congress. The gov
ernment has money for irrigation
works and has engineers In the field
making surveys and will establish ir
rigatlon works In any district suita
ble for the urpose providing the pec
pie will co-operate by organizing
their laterests, pledging their use of
me water Buppnea .ana mrowing
their private irrigation works in with
the government in one general
scheme. In doing this the govern
ment guarantees the retention by the
individual of his already acquired ir
rigation works and water rights. F.
H. Newell, of the United States AgrJ,
cultural Department, who is now Ir
the Wejet with a corps of engineers
and who has arranged for irrigating
works In Idaho In conjunction with
the efforts of the people already put
under way, has promised to come to
Eastern Oregon and survey the situ
ation here. He has stated plainly,
however, that the government will do
nothing unless the people first move
in the; matter.
"Irrigation" and immigration go
hand in hand," said the gentleman
referred to, ' " and we cannot expect
successfully to induce immigration tc
Eastern Oregon unless we can show
tfce rjople of the East that we are
alivf to the importance of irrigation
and -will take the necessar ysteps to
'Secure the government aid offered.
