Tho most important banner of
the lot was the one which read
"Give us Railroads, Irrigation
and Farmers" these words are
too true, for without the railroads,
our country will remain in an
i isolated condition, and we would
have no need of irrigation, for
bunch grass, sage brush and jack

on an irrigation project in north
ern Malheur county, which will
be entirely finished by fall. The
result has been so far, two new
thriving towns, extension of the
railroad to meet the demands and
-hundreds-ofv-aettlers flocking in
to get the irrigated lands because
they are sure they have all the
water when conserved, necessary
to supply their demands.
These people did not come in
to that part of the country with
, a great blare of trumpets, but in
la great business like way and
went to work and did things and
' are still doing them.
; Now if capital can be interest
ed there, why can't it bo made
to become interested in the great

larger valleys and more water.

foot of our tillable lands,
When our lands are under wa
ter the deserts will be made to
blossom and we will be blessed
with railroads whose cars will go
from our valley groaning under
I the heavy loads of grain and farm
Of course it does not take
much of a philosopher to realize
that with irrigation and railroads
there will be a great demand for
settlers to work the soil. We of
course will need something in the
way of publicity, which should be
honest and just truths; we will
have the soil, the water, the cli
mate and the railroads, and set
tlers will come and we can't pre
vent them from ceming: they
will be anxious to come because
we will have something for them.
They will come from the north,
south, east and west, and locate
in our valley and make homes.
Yes, we will extend them the
large glad hand and say welcome
settler we want you, we need
you. This you will agree with
me. But now, there is one thing
further: what kind of settlers,
any kind, all kinds? yes, no,
We want settlers that will make
homes that will bean ornament to
our beautiful country, not so much
in a physical beauty sense, with
fine houses, barns, outbuildings
and well kept fences, etc., these
, are good and are a natural con
j sequence of an elevated condition
of its occupants.
It is the settler with high and
lofty ideals we want, from whose
i homes come children who have
been trained to love their coun
try, their neighbors and their
1 God. For the home is the center
of development of the country,
for from the home comes the
farmer, the merchant, the poli
tician, and professional man, and
these men are soon to become the
ones that are to handle our af
fairs in business, political and
It is easy to draw the conclu
sion that as the home of today is,
so will be the development of
tomorrow I think you will all
agree with me, we want and must
have the best class of citizens.
Such being the case the profes
sional man, merchant, politician
and ordinary citzen ought to give
his or her support to everything
that will bring about conditions
desired. And become not a
knocker of anything that is lab
oring to this end but a booster
Yes a booster first and last and
