JAMES J. HILL
James J. Hill, the emuire builder of,
the West, in the paner sent to be read
at the Oregon levelooment League
convention in Aton. made many
complimentary remark about Oregon.
The Blowing picture he painted of the
state's resources ami probable develop
ment, was good to the ears of the real
estate men. who have hesitated in
making prophecies and predictions so
strong as the areat railroad magnate.
Mr. Hill said in part:
"Your natural inheritance is prince

sice. Oregon is a giant even among j
the great communities of tne West, i
Her area Is as large as all New Eng
land with South Carolina added. It is
half as great again as the Turkish
Emoire in Europe. If it were as thick
ly settled as New Jersey is today, it
would support 5 000.000 more people ,

the Union west of the Mississippi j
Kiver. With the population per square '
mile of Ohio, it would contain all the!
people living in Minnesots. Iowa, t
Missouri, the two Dakotas. Nebraska'

markets of the country. Thirty million J
dollars were last vear spent on rail-
road construction in Oregon. And
underneath and ben nd all this are the
great agricultural possibilities which
even you ao not jet appreciate at their
"Until a few years ago the word
'Oregon' meant the Willamette Valley.
That country alone, indeed, with its
fertile acres, beautiful homes, flourish
ing cities and growing commerce,
would not be unworthy to atamo its
name upon a state. But south of the
Wlliamette Valley the finest fruit
country on the Coast continues to the
California line, while eait of the Cas
cade range lies two-thi ds of the area
of the entire state. And it is in this
section that development will te most

"The same ignorant tradition that
located the 'Great American Desert'
to the heart of the continent retained
Eastern Oregon as a part of it long
after the myth was discredited in ita
application to similar country in
Eastern Washington. Idaho and Mon
tana. In books recently published one
mav still read of Eastern Oregon as
of doubtful nature for agriculture.
"The fact is that there are few more
promiuine sections anywhere. The soil
is very rich, needing only water to
make it produce enormously. Irriga
tion and the so called dry framing
method together will bring most of
Eastern Oregon within the reach of
practical and highly productive agri
culture. The experience of farmers
and friut growers has demonstrated so
much bevond question.
"Only 5 per cent of the area of the
state in now improved. Only about
350.000 peonle are engaged In its cul
tivation. Yet. in addition to the fruit
industry, whose products are famous
! in all the markets of the world. Oregon
raises some 16.000,000 bushels oi wheat
each vear. dairying and the livestock
industry are capable of almost indefi
nite expansion, and all forms of agri
cultural industry are sure of an abun
"For 50 years Oregon awaited re
cognition of her claim upon the forces
that make for National development.
Prior to 1850 her name did not appear
upon the census rolls at all. As late
as 1870 she bad but 90.000 people, less
than half the population of her princi
pal city today. But in the last 20 vears
the population of the state has more
than doubled and the increase for the
past decade is 66.27 per cent. In the
same time the increase in the number
of farms was 26 per cent. While this
is a respectable rate of growth as
compared with the rest of the country,
it shows, when compared with the
state's rate of population increase,
that the farm interests need encour
agement and promotion.
"The area of improved land in the
state has increased 28 per cent in the
last 10 years and more than doubled
in the last 30. The value of tarm lands
and buildings nas been multiplied bv
four in 20 years. And the value of
farm products grown annually, as new
orchards came into bearing and new
markets are captured by Oregon fruit,
leaps ahead from year to year. You
Washlng'on. Census Director
Durand Issued recently the first official
statement from the census bureau
relative to the agricultural statistics
for the western division of stsles and
territories, collected at the thirteenth
decennial Unite! State census, Aoril
IS, 1910. The western division Includes
Washington, Oregon, California.
Nevada. Idaho. Utah. Arlxona. Mont
ana. Wyoming. Colorado and New
Mexico. All of the 'lata incluied in
this statement have been reported
separately for the states and territor
ies named aUive.
It pointed out in the statement to
day that the rales of increase for tho
western division in 1910. as against
1900. among the items in the first
table. in the order of their importance,
are: In the total value of farm land,
exclusive of buildings, 203 per cent;
in the total value of farm lands includ
ing buildings. 193 Per rent; in the
average value per acre of farm land,
alone. 157 per cent: in the average
value per acre of farm land, including
buildings. 149 oer cent; in the total
expenditures lor fertilizers in 1909.
126 tier cent ; in the total value of farm
buildings. 124 per cent; in the total
value of farm implement and machin
ery, 118 per tent; in the total expen
ditures for lal.or in 1909, 112 per cent;
in the total improved farm acreage.
39 per cent ; and in the total acreage of
land in farms. 13 per cent.
The only decrease recorded is in the
average number of acies per farm. 23
per cent. This is due to the disap
pearance of some of tha very large
holdings and the establishment of
thousands of small farms and ranches.
The statement shows in detail that
the number of farms reported in 1910
was 3692.44. as compared with 242.903
in 1900. an increase of 126.3.16. or 52

A negro named Ed. Majors attacked

brutal msnner possible, one of them
a married woman being beat in the
face in a terrible manner and the
youngest, a girl recovering from a
seiiius operation was attacked in such
a manner that her life is despaired of.
The testimony of the women was of
such a chsracter that the District
Attorney could hardly keen his hands
off the foul fiend. Msjors is under
arrest and has been identified by his
victims. Governor West believes in

the girl victim dies as is feared the
negro will be tried for murder under
the laws of Oregon.
need set no narrow bounds to your
development if it is carried out along
modern, practical and scientific lines.
"Give your main energies to the
advancement of the agricultural in
terests and your cities will take care
of themselves. Your harbors, your
ports, your railroads, your commercial
organizations, all depend finally upon
the wealth you take out of the ground.
Your particular advantage, as I have
already suggested, lies In the possess
ion of all machinery and experience of
an old community here upon the Paci
fio. together with tho spirit and ambi
tion of a new and an immense area of
the most productive land, compara
tively untouched, east of the moun
tains. "Make the best, as you are now do
ing, of your farm and fruit lands on
the Western slopes and valleys. Make
the best of the fine lands of your east
ern and central counties, whose agri
cultural possibilities are not yet
appreciated at their worth. Wherever
your forests are cut down multiply the
draies for which your country is so
well adapted. If your experiments in
legisation and government, which have
been so widely heralded, are received
by conservative people with a certain
degree of caution and suspended
judgement, they have at least served
one good end in securing a fair support
of your state university. See to it
that agriculture has a place of honor
in its course and that the education of
all your people in this Indispensable
calling la njt neglected"
"All women should be safe to defend
themselves mora or less." said Miss
Rosa Crouch, who Is a strong exponent
of the boxing game as an exercise. As
she said this she made a few rauld
motions with her fists and Planted a
prettv one at the spot In the air where
the Interviewer's head was a fraction
of a second before.
Miss Croucn then settled down on
the trunk besides the reporter in her
dressing room at the Ornhrum and told
how a young woman should take care
"First of all." she said, "a woman
should oractice daily with someone
who knnws the game and can give
her a number of points about the
different punches. Then she shouldn't
be afraid to put on the gloves and go
a round or two. so as to harden her
muscles. I am a strong believer in
exercise both in and out of doors.
Boxing, nowevcr. is my strong point."
Miss Crouch was then asked which
punch she considered the best to use
when a "masher" or burglar accosted
"On. I don't know," she answered.
"You see, it all depends upon what
the circumstances aro- and the chances
"Were you ever approached on tho
"Yes. But only once." she answered
quickly. "It haooened in New York.
I was walking down the street and a
frtsh guv attempted to talk to me. I
locked no at him. judged the distance
and gave him a whulloo on the nose.
I then turned around and beat it tor
the hotel which was near by."
"And believe me." broke in George
Welch, a cousin of Freddie Welch, the
English lightweight tighter, and wno
is a partner of Miss Crouch in their
Urpheum act. "she is some runner.
You seo. we box together mornings
for exercise and sometimes when she
gets in a real good punch she turns
aoout and rune away. She ran hit
harder with her right than with her
left, but that has been found to be the
case with most women.
"MiasCrou:h uses more headwork
in her boxing than a areat many ot the
toys I have met" (Welch, by the
way. was a former oamam weigm
champion in England.)
Mia Crouch took her turn at talking
"I always did liko to fight, and got
my first start when with John L. Sulli
van's theatrical company. Since then
I have practiced to keep healthy. I
tell vou it's fine. Sometimes I put on
these gloves with the bovs in thej
Welch again broke into the conver
sation with. "She's the best-natured
boxer I have ever seen. You can hit
her on the nose and she only savs
'Ouch' and laughs."
Miss Crouch is only 4 feet 11 inches
tall and weighing 106 pounds. She Is
the 25fh child of a family of 27. Miss
Crouch's sister's daughter's son is old
er than she. Her father was a musi
cian of talent who composed many
popular pieces, among the best being
"Katherine Mavourneen." He was
Professor Fredrick Nicholls and died
in 18 at the age of 89. Even in the
last year of his life he led the orches
tra of a traveling company. He had
four wives. 21 daughters and six sons,

In the period indicated, the movement
of topualtion to the coaat will be so
heavy that the Pacific surplus in land

extension rf new railways throughout
the country, will bring about the
This summary of land conditions a
