Groat Southwest is Now a
Financial Giant, Says
Tells tho Eaflt of tho Marvelous
Development of the Indian
Territory nnd Contiguous
Territory, and Predicts
President Yoakum of the Frisco
System, who has shown his confi
dence In the Indian Territory and
the great eouthwetl by penetrat
ing every section of it with the
steel ol tho great corporation, haB
given an enthusiastic inlorview in
New York in regard to the pres
ent conditions and futuro pros
pects of Ibis Bcclion. Mr. Yoakum
said in part:
"Thero is no cause for unoasi
rets on the ground that the West
and Southwest will not be able to
take care of the present crops, bo
far as supplying (unds is con
cerned. Conditions down there
uniformly point to prosperity. In
Tfxns and the territories alone,
estimating the cotton crop at 3,
500,000 bales, tbo farmers wil!
realize on cotton and cotton-seed
products alone, at present prices,
about 8135,000,000. Putting this
one product on n per capita basis,
it becomes evident that the finan
cial position of Texas and tho ter
ritories is immensely strong, as
compared with tho position of a
few years ago.
"This npplys not only to bank
eis and commercial interests, but
the farmers, stock raisers and
thoee eDgaged in local industries,
are becoming so independent that
instead of being borrowtrs they
will shortly be lenders of money.
In time, a large portion of the
money token from tho Eatt for the
movement of tbq crops will be
Western money, placed .nere to
the credits of We torn banks i a
withdrawn lempoiarlly. Thii
partly true of the present
'Today I regard the lvatt as
more dependont upon the Wait
than the West has been uron the
East lor many years, and from my
knowledge of the conditions, and
tho substantial growth nud devel
opment of tho West and South
west, I behve that the independ
ence of tho West will Increase as
timo goes on. Not only will this
ultimately prove to he true in mat
ters ol manufacture and industrial
life, but it will also apply to money
The greater Southwest, by
which I mean that territory bound
ed on the east by the Mississippi,
north by tho Missouri, south by
the gulf and weBt by a line drawn
from Kansas City to El Paso, is
going to afford a tremendous mar
ket for the products of the manu
facturing centers of the country.
The new towns that are going up
there now aro not by any means
like the boom towns of ten or fif
teen years ago. To illustrate this,
when our lino entered one of the
new towns In Indian Territory a
few months ago we found there
woro eighteen brick .buildings in
process of ereotion. Ten years
ago there might havo been the
same number of buildings, but
they would have been cheap frame
structures. When it is understood
that this same substantial improve
ment is going on throughout the
wholo of that section, it beoomes
evident that the manufacturing in
dustries of the Union will find a
constantly widening market in
that prosperous region.
"From ray knowledge of the
past and present territory in ques
tion, I am confident of its future.
Its diversified interests and tho
headway that Is being mado by
rapid development of a permanent
character must be known to be ap
preciated." CLOSING THE ROLLS.
