The aiorious West.
The following selection is from
the recently published "Conquest
of Arid America," by William 12.
Muytiic, who was lor many years
editor of the Irrigation Age and is
recognized as one of the foremast
authorities on irrigation and arid
land reclamation in the world. He
speaks from an experience of many
years in the arid West, and his
words carry an unusual amount of
weight with them. We print this
selection in the hope that it will be
read by those of our readers who
arc interested in the reclamation of
the Oregon Desert, and that it may
reach the eyes of some who have
recently come from the humid Hast
and who have some doubts as to the
fertility and productiveness of our
"The Western half-continent is
rich not merely in the precious met
als, but in all the raw materials of
economic greatness. Its' supreme
advantage consists in the extraor
dinary diversity of its resources. In
directing attention to the general
superiority of these states over their
sisters of the East and Middle West
it is sufficient now to say that they
have more water power than New
England; more coal, iron and oil
than Pennsylvania; larger and bet
ter forests than Maine, Michigan
and Minnesota; and produce better
wheat and com than any of the
Middle West states. The time is
rapidly coming when they will pro
duce' more and better sugar than
Louisiana, and will revolutionize
the tanning industry by supplant
ing oak and hemlock bark with
canaigre. With beef and mutton,
wool and hides, they already feed
and clothe the East, They have
finer harbors than Boston and New
York, and a sea coast which faces a
greater and more populous foreign
"There is no Eastern state that
compares with almost any one of
these giant commonwealths of the
comparatively unknown West in
anything save present development,
which, of course, includes popula
tion, wealth and political influence.
So emphatic and unmistakable is
the superiority with which nature
endowed the Par West that it may
le said in all seriousness that if the
pilgrim fathers had landed at San
Diego rather than at Plymouth, that
half of the country which now con
tains over ninety per cent of the
total population would be regarded
as comparatively worthless. It
would have been difficult to settle it
to the best advantage. To illus
trate: Imagine the excitement
which would occur if the people of
New England should awaken some
morning to find themselves in pos
session of the climate and divcrsi'
fied resources of Colorado, Oregon
or California! Even the sane brain
which rules the land of steady hab
its would grow dizzy in the pres
ence of such vast possibilities. And
- yet Colorado, Oregon and Califor
nia represent but a small proportion
of the country which rests under
-the wide arch of our Western sky.
"Fortunate beyond all other parts
of the United States in its climate
and in the surpassing wealth of its
forests, its quarries and . its mines,
Western America is yet more fav
ored in another element of its pbys-.
ieal foundation. This is, the sub
stantial aridity which prevails
throughout its vast proportions.
"The anomaly that its foiemost
blcssimr should consist In tltc fact
which gave it n widespread repu
tation for worthlcssuess is interest
ing but unimportant. Nature fre
quently conceals her raw materials
ot greatness, alike in men ami in
countries, until time and opportun
ity nre ripe. In the aridity of the
West we shall find the true key to
its future institutions. Climate
may produce a healthy nice, and
mineral resources may enrich it.but
the natural conditions which deter
mine the character of social and in
dustrial organization, and mold the
habits and customs of men, are the
potent influences which shape civ
ilization. Hence wc shall sec that
in any just estimate of the relative
worth of Western resources the fact
of aridity must be rated as high
above the value of forests and mines
as human progress is dearer than
money, and as the fate of the nice
is more momentous than the pros
perity of individuals.
'Vrofcs-or Hilgard has demon
strated that the average arid soil of
the West is equal or better than the
most phenomenal soil of the East,
while the soil of the arid West as a
whole Is beyond comparison with
that of the humid East as a whole.
He coins the maxim, 'Arid coun
tries arc always rich countries when
irrigated,' and the phrase docs
scant justice to the subject. It only
remains to add that Professor Hil
gard is rccognizednis the foremost
expert on soils in the West, and is
regarded as one of the first men in
his profession in the United

If It were not for the HncyclopC'
dla Hiitannica or a silly, wortwmt

Review would be strictly up against
it for "news" for his sheet. He
would do a much more appreciable
piece of work If he were to turn Ills
attention to a spelling book mid a

Uend will not corral the trade of
Southeastern Oregon to any great
extent. We have an idea tlint the
Portland business men are not so
keen after the Southeastern trade as
they are for the Central
