E. D HOWARD TELL9 OF GREAT
EMPLOYMENT (TfJJONVICT LABOR
Resulta n Millions of Dollars Im
provement to Farm Lands and
Roads Can De Duplicated
B. H, Howard, becrctary anil mem
ber ( f the Oklahoma Stuto Hoard of
I'ubln' Affairs, has returned from a
vacation trip of three weeks, spent
In Colorado, liccnuso of IiIb ohserva
t foil of tho highly successful Irrigation
projects In Colorado Mr. Howard Is nti
enthusiast over the Biilijoct of Irriga
tion for Oklahoma.
"During my ncntlmi," ho Bays, "I
look tin- opportunity to Investigate
and Htudy tlio great bcnelltB Irrigation
has been to the ntntn of Colorado, and
I am morn than ever Impressed with
tlio suggestion that I made a year ago,
relative to devising Homo plan for
using our convict labor and placing
Oklahoma fa inn h In position to ho Ir
rigated during such seasons aa wo
have had tills jcar.
"W'hll" In Colmado I Inspected sev
eral farniH and tractB of land which
Hon. E. D. Howard.
hnvo hee.i benellted by Irrigation and
fiom the nature of tho soil that I saw
anil a study of the conditions lu Okla
homa, I am conllilent that irrigation
would be entlrel) feasible In this
state, and that nothing llko tho
amount of water would he required
for our purposes as 1 found to ho noces
niry at these places, for tho reason
that a utility of thu rainfall In Okla
homa since Its llrst settlement shows
that every year thero la stilllciont pre
cipitation to raise bumper crops were
It properly distributed and were wo
to placu ourselves lu position to
preservo tho water that falls In tho
winter mid spring and early summer
months, and that good crops could be
Insured each year.
"Theio is no doubt but what Okla
homa soil Is more productive than
many tracts of land I saw lu Colo
rado which vvero producing immense
crops by reason of Irrigation.
"In Donvor I Inspected tho display
of the agricultural products of that
state, and especially those which had
been produced on Irrigated land. It
was a surprise to seo tho quality and
qunntlty, of different kinds of crops,
Mich as wheat, corn, oatB, sugar beets,
etc., that are being produced In that
stato on laud which, previous to tho
days of Irrigation, would grow nothing
savo short grass and cactus.
"After an Investigation of these
plants and other products and a study
of tho conditions in Colorado, I can
seo great possibilities for Oklahoma
agricultural Interests If our peoplo
will only take up tho matter of Irri
gation and a preservation of our rain
fall. "Thero mi)' he other wnys In which
It would be better to do this work,
but llgtiring that we have several hun

dred man In our penitentiaries and I
reformatories for whom wo muBt I
necessarily provldo means of employ
ment and believing that It would u
bolter to use theso men In Improving (
our agricultural Interests, which at the
same tlmo would mean the Improve-1
ment of our towns and cities, until '
somo better means of doing this can (
ho found, 1 havo rnado up my mind,
to urgo upon tho peoplo of this state ;
to take up this matter and keep It be
foro tho public until such tlmo as some
kind of arrangements are ma do to put
our farms In better condition than at
tlm present, and I urgo a movement
that will Immediately put theso unem
ployed men who nro being supported
by tho state, to tlio work ot building
dams, ponds or somo other arrange
ments for .preserving tho moisture
that we need during tho months ot
July and August, when wo have a dry
year In this country.
"I believe Oklahoma could take up
no better slogan than that which has
been recently broached In Missouri
of 'WATER VOU EVERY PAUM.'
"It lias been suggested that reser-
voha bo established along riven to
tako caio of tho overflow wutera. l'er
hapa that scliemu could be carried
out, but why shouldn't a stato com
mission or someone, take up tho sub
Ject and work out a plan? Perhaps
It might bo better for each county to
haudlo Us own problem, but be that
as it may, let's do something! I think
it would bo a mistake for ua to let
tho lesbon of this season bo wasted.
Wo nro going to havo bucIi seasons as
this occasionally, and wo might as
well mako up our minds to do what
wo can to loduco tho evils by making
leasouablo preparations for preserv
ing our water and having It at such
tlmc3 as this w hen It would mean so
much to our peoplo and to this state.
"In addition to studying tho matter
of irrigation while away, I also took
occasion to obscrvo tho many good
roads built by tho stato of Coloiado,
with their convict labor. Theso good
roads havo been ono of Colorado's
greatest nstets and havo not only
meant a great convenience to tho citi
zens but have attracted tho Invest
ment of thousands of dollars In that
"I talked with peoplo who had
charge or had an Interest In tho work
during tho tlmo thebo roads wero be
ing built by tho convicts of Colorado
and without exception found that ov
eryono and every person cognizant of
what had been done, not only praised
tho otllcials of tho Stato for their
work, but as'sured mo thut the very
fact of working these convicts out on
tho roads lu tho fresh air and the
better treatment, mndo of them, when
their terms expired, better men, and
tlioso whoso terms had not yet expired,
"In fact, from every standpoint,
Colorado Is greatly benellted by rea
son ot working convicts upon hor
roads, and why should Oklahoma not
"The conditions are mich that as
good, If not better, roads can be
mado for a minimum cost and a mini
mum nmount of work, ns compared
with tho roads that It was necessary
for Colorado to build through ltor
canyons and mountains.
"Good roads and a practical appli
cation of some scheme or other, yet
to bo figured out, ot Irrigation, would
be tho greatest thing that Oklahoma
can do for herself. It would not
only asBuro to our Jarmors, crops
each year, but would assure to every
mechanic ami laborer In this state,
work at his own trado In tho future,
with good roads over which to trans
port tho products of our Irrigated
farms. Tho improvement by reason
of theso roads and this irrigation
would mean yearly a great deal nioro
to our stato than somo of our rich
mineral Interests to which wo pay bo
much attention at tho present time.
"I cuggest that tho peoplo of Okla
homa tako up tho matter of good
roaila and Irrigation mid that no stono
ho left unturned until both nro an ac
complished fact, and In this suggestion
I ask that every man In this stato,
who is Interested In this movement,
cither communicate with mo or In
homo way start an agitation and keep
at It until theso things aro an accom
plished fact "
