To the Kdltor of tbo Pittsburg Commercial :

millions of dollars wcro tho necessary
outlay to attain the hoped-for remit.
Let ui look a little iiito the wealth and
the increase in wealth of the territory
of the Ohio valley during tho past
twenty years only.
Iu 1850 the valuation of property,
real and personal, of the seven Mates
of tho Ohio was 82,089.002,052 ; in
lSGOitwas 85,171,001.897; iu 1S70
it is given in theconsm at glO,72G,8;J9,
'.TOl, tbo valuatiou of that of the
whole United States being only S'.!0,
068,518,607. In the eighteen sea coast
states, tbo valuation in 1850 was giveu
at 84,321,577,745 ; in 18(50 it was
stated at 88,031,119,734, and in 1870
according to tbo ccusus, it is 814,229,
392,389. From "this it would seem
that the valuation of property iu tho
seven Ohio statos bad iucrcascd, iu the
nast ten vcars. over one hundred per
eont., and in twenty over five hundred
per cent. ; while iu the Kca-coast states
it has increased only seventy-fivo per
cent, iu the past ten years, and ubout
three hundred and thirty' per tent, in
twenty years, includiui; in that period
California with her great mineral dc
velopemeutt. Under tbo sstuo ratios
of incrMM, as in the past ten years
tht ceosas valuatiou.of tho Ohio states
will be is 1890, or but a little over six
teen yean from now, over thirty-two
billioni of dollars more than ten
time our national debt. This is allow
ing tbfl increase to bo from 1800 to
1870, and from 1880 to 1800 only one
half that per cent. At tbo same period
the sea-coust states would, under the
same ratios, be given at only a little
over thirty billious. It will easily bo
seon by these statistics, how soon the
seven Ohio state will as much exceed
the eighteen coast states in wealth as
they will in population.

that the Ohio bo sufficiently improved
to meet not only tho wants of to-day,

magnitude in the years now so near ut

and earnest interrogation eome3 sharp
ly into being. Why should so nearly
a preponderance of political and com
mercial power of the nation rcstconteut
with the expenditure of a few thousands
annually on this great highway, and
their representative vote quietly awuy
millions for defenses and improvements
of tho sea coast yearly? Tho axiom
"iu peace prepare for war." may be a
very trood one. Is there not, however,
as much wisdom in expending equal
millions (o meet the wants ot the peo
ple, from whom the sinews of war
must coma in time of need, iu develop
ing the country and preparing to win
the geuial victories of peace, which en-
.:. .-..-.l -p -. ...:. a.
la it not time that one-halt ot tuc
peoplo instructed their representatives
in conurcsa that it tuo Atlantic Mates
want, millions for harbor improvements,
they of the interior of the great Ohio
valley must have as much for tho im-
tiroYomout of their waters? Were that
tho issue, would not the trouble about
tho improvement lor the Ohio, being
bciruii, on a scale sufficient to accom
plish desired results disappear, even if
thirty or forty millions siiouiii io need
ed iu tho course of eight or ten years?
Especially, as during tho period of Us
appropriation, tno unw aim .missis
sippi valley states would be yearly
augmenting their political as well as
commercial power? JHrcctly or in
directly that expenditures conies trom
tho people; by them it is in some
shape paid, aud if our representatives
vote three or four millions lor sea coast
harbor improvements unci take one or
two hundred thousands lor the Uliio,it
scorns as if such legislation
bo classed as taxation without
scntatiou.
Hut let us devote tho btlaucc of this
letter to examining the further impor
tance of these set en Ohio states. ' The
bituminous coal area of the United
States is given ntj:!!l,132 equaro miles,
iu the geological surveys so far pub
lished, while Ureal Hritaiu, France aud
ffcltrium contain but IM.U'Jb squaro
miles, or a Utile over ono-tenth. Of
this 133,132 square miles of bituminous
coal deposit, tho Ohio Mates contain
oue hundred thousand. Tho relation
of fuel to manufactures is too well un
derstood to need comment to show
where tho niunufaturing population of
tho United States will be. The value
of minerals and manufactures to the
wealth of a nation has been too clearly
ilcmoustratcd in the national hie ol
Ureat Britain to rcquiro argument to
show what one hundred thousand
sauaro miles of coal will be to tbo
seven Ohio states, if only eleven thou
sand has been of such incalculable
value to Ureat Uritain. What food,
what tranportatian, then, will not this
nation s workshop uecd lor its work
crs?
How fast this maxiict of fuel is con
centrating in the Ohio statcs,thc manu
facturing interests of the nation, the
comparative statistics oftlio number of
manufacturing establishments and
their product, in tbo eighteen tea coast
states and the seven Uluo states, in
185U and iu 1S70, indicates. In 1850
thcro wore, acordiiij: to the census, iu
tho eighteen sea coast states, 05,273
manufacturing establishments, produc
ini; 81139,771.103. In 1800 there were
liG 959, producing 8,121.308.395. In
tho seven Ohio states iu 1850 there
30,277 factories, yielding 82S 1,455,
(iilG in products. In 1850 thero wcro
49,099 factories, yielding S.'XiS.l 15,.
117. In 1870 tno consus gives 101,
5S0 manufactures in tho sea coast
states yielding S2,237,23li,li05 pro
ducts,aud iu tho seven Ohio states 97,
508 factories, yielding products to tho
value of 81,408,910,550. From these
census statistics it appears that the in
crease in tho eighteen tea coast states
has iu twenty years been !iu,!J0 lac
tones, and 81,59H,405 138 in products
while in tho seven Ohio states tho in
create was 03,291 factories, and 81,
121,483,851 in product. It is obvious
that the factories of the Ohio stales be
ing of more recent existence, were
less magnitude thun tbo older ones of
the hastern coast, including the mam
moth manufacturing corporations
New England, aud of course of lo.-i
productive capacity, It will be ob.erv
ed that the ratio of increase iu the
Ohio states is about one bundled and
soventy-fivo per cent., and only about
fifty-six per cent, in the eighteen sea
coast states, or as three to oue ; while
the increaso iu products i only twenty
five per cent, less than iu tho older
manufacturing sections. Under tho
ratio of increase of tho nast ten years,
only, thero will bo iu thu seven Ohio
states iu twenty years from 1870, over
two hundred and fifty thousand facto
ries. Their production, taking ollly
the average indicated by tho census of
1870, will bo three billions six hun
dred millions of dollars, or fifty per
cent, more than thu whole imports and
exports of Ureat ltritain, to and from
all countries.
eight or ten years, sink iu comparison
with this prospect. And yet-they arc
results that the entire statistical ratios
of the past hear out and justify cred
ence iu. It is for the transportation
wants of this wonderful cmpito iu only
one section of I'nclc Ham's territories
that tho improvement of the Ohio river
is demanded. The expenditure, tak
ing 830,000,000 ns the amount, would
only be ono hundred and twenty dol
lares for each of the two hundred and
.fifty thousaiMl manufacturing establish
ments which, according to tho census
ratio's forecast will occupy the Ohio
states in sixteen years from now. It is
only about three hundred dollars for
each one now existing iu those states.
This is without any statistical account
of tho present prospective mining in
dustries of this mineral region, which
must he in proportionate ratios, sur
passing iu extent that of Uicat Britain,
Belgium and France, the three great
manufacturing fields of Europe, as
sevcu to one. Is it necessary, in the
knowledo of what their manufacturing
industries have been to those nations,
to a:k what would be the action of
their statesmen did similar facts exist
within their governments? Are not
the facts in relation to tho industries of
those nations equally of force for our
instruction as if existing here? The
whole series of figures in this letter
give such plain inferences that nil re
ileetiiicr minds will decide that not an
other session should pass, without the
work being begun on a scale to meet
amply the evident necessities.
