Washington territory has nearly two
thousand miles of railroad. She has two
cities of twenty thousand each (Tacoma
and Seattle) and one of ten thousand
(Spokane Falls). Sho hr.s a score of
growing towns of from one to five thou
sand population. She supports a uni
versity and five colleges. Her sea-going
commerce is surpassed in volume only
by that of the five or 6ix great ports of
entry on the Atlantic coast and by San
Francisco on the Pacific coast. Her
population is more than nine-tenths of
American birth and is drawn from the
educated, energetic classes of all the
states of the Union. Sho has nearly
twice the number of inhabitants required
by tho last apportionment for a repre
sentative in Congress. Sho is attract
ing more people westward than is any
state or territory west of the Eocky
mountains. Her wonderful resources
have been heralded abroad until she is
known from the Atlantic to tho Pacific,
and from the great lakes to tho extreme
south, and as a result thousands are
pouring into her borders and seeking
homes. E:ustern exchanges are lament
ing and daily chronicling tho departure
of their substantial citizens, who are
headed for our territory. Capitalists,
