It is the farmer and the demands
of the farmer that keep the manu
factories of the Eat busy and hold

is that each should understand the

real men of America, the sustainers
of American life.
EVERY mile of good roads laid by
states, counties, towns and vill
ages has a bearing on the nation's
business so far reaching that it
would puiiie the mind to follow it
to its logical conclusion. Of course,
the natural tendency is to look at
the benefits that come nearest and
soonest to hand, benefits which are
ndisnutable, providing unwise fin
ancing of such improvements doet
not more than offset the good that it
bound to be gained.
Reports from all over the country
how that interurban freighting is
the increase due to good road
building, particularly where the ter
minal facilities of railroads are con
gested. This means more motor
trucks, more men at work, more
money earned, and a consequent
greater spending power. Haulage ox
farm products to shipping stationt
spells more business for the farmer,
and better still makes his market
ing more elastic.
The effect is also seen in tne greai
increase of bus transportation in
districts where the street car has not
shown its nose as yet, bringing busi
ness into the small towns. Trade is
rapidly increasing. particularly
where the merchant has vision to
send his message to the outlying dit-
dncta throueh the local press.
America today is on the eve ol a
development m motor trucks, omni
buses, and large and small tractors
that in point of volume will surpass
the development of the railroads.
Some of the railroad men view tne
situation with a certain feeling of a-
larm. but there is nothing to fear.
It is the same fanciful spectre that

COLUMBIA BASIN PROJECT
FEDERAL investigation of the Col
umbia Basin project has been au
thoriied by Secretary of Interior,
Hubert Work and federal engineers
are already assembling data. A con
gressional appropriation of $100,000
has been provided for the purpose.
The Columbia Basin Irrigation Lea
gue whose energies have been direct
ed to securing the federal investiga
tion, has therefore called the first
annual meeting of the league to be
held at Pasco, April 21 on the anni
versary of the league organization.
It is expected that one thousand or
more delegates from Washington, Id
aho, Montana and Oregon will attend
the league convention. United States
senators, congressmen, governors and
other state officials from the four
northwest states will participate in
the Pasco program. Arrangements
have been made by the league with
the railroads for special convention
The Columbia Basin project, em
bracing approximately two million
acres in Washington, with a more
than adequate water supply in Idaho
and Montana and with enormous
water possibilities, is the greatest
single irrigation project ever stud
ied by the federal government, ac
cording to C. B. Hurley, president
of the Columbia Basin Irrigation
"The federal engineers are not
questioning the feasibility of the
project but will determine the most
economical methods of bringing the
water from its source to the arid
lands," he said.
