BILL BOOSTS HOME COUNTRY-
One of the best speeches mudo
nt the recent meeting of the De
velopment Lengue in Astoria wns
made by Bill Hanloy according
to the advices received through
the Portland papers. The follow -ing
are paragraphs from a re
port published in the Jeurnal:
Enthusiasts for the develop
ment of Oregon who listened to
newcomers and old residents by
moans of "soil schools." branches
of the Agricultural college. Ho
advocated the use of western re
sources by westerners, saying
that if easterners wnnt the bene
fit of western resources they
should come here and live. Col
onel Hanley said:
"When that wise old Dutch-
- man, .John Jacob Aster, founded
this town ho was looking for
skins in competition with the
Hudson Bay company. Ho was
dealing in the products of the
wilderness, furs. What has made
the difference between that day
and this? Population! What
supports all your steamship lines
and railways? Population! What
makes all your cities? Popula
tion. And what supports the
cities themselves? The country
population back of them.
"You can see that everyono of
thp address of William Ilanlev.
the "cattle king from Burns.'" ui ought to do what we can to
vesterdav evenintr. declared it increase the population. Now, 1
one of the richest things they
had heard. With constantly out
cropping mother wit that com
am a country man; I am from
the center of the state what
they call the desert but I want
nnllml rnnriniinns ntmlniisn. ITnn. to tell VOU to forget it. That
ley told of the eastern Oregon name-forgot it. It is the rich-
est soil on earth, the water is
'We've got the richest land in ' there to irrigate it. If it isn't in
the world," exclaimed Hanley,
who is not only vice president of
the Oregon Development league,
but president of the Central Ore
gon Development league.
Hanley pleaded for training of
the streams from the mountains,
or from the heavens, to be con
served by scientific cultivation, it
is underneath, either in artesian
or to be pumped.
"There is no limit to the de
velopment of that country in ul-
jfnlfn, clover, wheat, barley,
sugar bcota, meats, and nil tho
leading staples. It is ready to
support millions of population,
but whoro is tho population?
Well, tho population is rondy, too,
Back cast, in the middle west,
and in Gevmnny, France, Sweden
and Norwny, and tho best parts
of Euiopc. Wo can double tho
population of Ore on and then
double it again, in a very few
years, if wo all pull together.
"What is needed? Uuilwnya,
to bring in tho population and
carry out tho products; irrigation
by gravity or otherwise; good
roads lo feed tho railways, as
good roads aro just as necessary
as a railroad.
"The cities, and especially
Portland, should furnish money
or flnnnco legitimate, good, busi
ness like irrigation plans. They
should insist on railroads, and if
my good friend hero Mr. Gray,
won't build them. I say woshould
build them ourselves. I never
could see much difl'erenco be
tween a county road, irrigation
district or rnilroad, except cost.
All of them aro highways for the
people. There is a dilferenco in
operation, of course, but opera
tion is not, and never has been
hitched up with ownership. Lots
of railroads aro operated by peo
ple who do not own them.
"Now, I suppose I am a cattle
man if I'm anything, but I wnnt
to tell you, rich lands for farms
' and homes were never meant to
(raise cattle on. It is poor econ
lomy to take wide acres to graze
'a few cattle on when in the same
j business, even by highly cultivat
i ed products they could support
'many limes as many cattlo to
higher perfection of both people
and cattle. A range country can
nevor be a populous country, and
I have told you all our cities, all
of our prosperity, depends upon
people, people, people! But you
cannot get the pcoplo unless you
give them a chance. It is no
use to boom and advertise, and
not be ready for them when they
come. They want a homo and a
chance lo bo happy and comfor
table. "To get this population which
we must have, which is the bas-
I is of all growth and piospority,
j we must not be bottled up on
our natural lecourscs, I do not
(believe in waste nor do I believe
in the mere speculator who holds
out lands ngnlnst settlement and
'use, but I do beliovo in every
'locality and its population having
tho closest right to its own re
sources. "Tho cast has had (to resourc
es, it has used them and built up
on them. My idea is Hint tho
east has no right to Ray lo us,
'Wo will bottle up your recourses
for future generations.' Woof
this coast want to ubo our re
courses now, as use is conserva
tion nnd economy, and wo wnnt
the right just as tho cast had tho
uso of its recources. Wo do not
beliovo in the principlo that tho
natural recources belong to all
the peoplo when all tho natural
resources aro in tho west nnd all
tho pcoplo in tho east, but wo do
beliovo that all our natural re
sources belong to all the pcoplo
if they must como west to col
lect their interest in them.
"Togivoyoun bettor under
standing of my ideas of organi
zation. Tho soil that is unused,
or is not properly used, to tho
very highest stato of develop
ment, is a loss to all, and not so
serious to tho individual owner,
as it makes no difference to soci
ety in general what tho owner
ship of tho soil is if it docs not
"Hvery reservoir, canal and
irrigation system should bo fin
anced by a largo credit on sound
basis. All power should bo de
veloped to make country life as
attrntivo as city life, so that
cities would not bo so much in
advance of their creator, as thero
must be a limit of lime when
they will bo called upon for their
false inventories of values based
on their slime of the country's
product that is not being pio-duced."
