LOCAL CROPS SURE TO LOWER PRICF,.OF FOOD State Is Now Dependent Upon Eastern Agricultural Conditions for Daily Bread -National Irrigation Association is Preparing for an Active Campaign All Over the State. George II. Maxwell, executive chair man of the National Irrigation associa tion, has agreed to give the people of Montana one full montit ot his time. Mr. W. M. Wooldridge, of Kiusdale Valley county, Montana, who is state secretary of the association, is in Butte today to arrange for a public meeting to be ad dressed by Mr. Maxwell at Butte on August 4. Mr. Maxwell will also speak at Ana conda on August 5, at Dillon on August 6, at White Sulphur Springs on August 8. In all he will speak at 22 different towns throughout the state, his first place being at Glasgow Valley county on July 21, the last one being Miles City on August 16. In speaking of this matter with a rep resentative of the inter Mountain Mr. Wooldridge said: "I venture 'the asser tion that many persons in Butte will say that as we have no irrigable lands con tiguous to Butte, that we are not inter ested in the matter to the extent that Great Falls, Missoula or Billings would be. The mining and laboring people will probably hold similar views. To any per son who has given this matter thought, this is recognized as an erroneous view. The people of Butte and Anaconda are obliged to import nearly the entire amount of their food product. Let Montana Feed Herself. "Much of, this comes from distant states at a great cost for transportation and when a crop failure occurs in those states, as occurred last ye, in the Mis sissippi valley, the cost o, these food products are greatly increased. Now, if those parts of our own state that could be reclaimed by irrigation, were developed, we could produce these food products at home. The cost of transportation would he greatly reduced ind consequently, the cost cheapened to the consumer, and in this way every citizen of Butte has a direct and personal interest in the fullest pos sible development of our agricultural re sources. "Besides, the fuller development of our agricultural resources aid a fuller develop ment of our mineral wealth. Mr. C. H. Edwards of Butte, who is secretary of the state board of horticulture and who told me today that he was now checking off the books of the various prominent rail way stations of Montana to determine just how much food products were shipped into Montana, said that he had already completed, this w ork at a nuntier of promti Oc'lt' stations, and that the peolphI of Motl taLn would he surprised wIno thee fig ures were made public in Noveimbier. Benefit to Laboring Men. "''o tlihe laborinllg 'people of this state, the develolpment of our noirw waste regionii means opportunities for thile ulilding of hlonmes for themselves and families. It means indlependlence and the plhcilng in their own hands the means of their liveli hood." Mr. Maxwell is the great irrigatioiin champion, and as the head of the National Irrig:tion association has always stood out for anlything cnaleulated to benefli tihe nltlual holltluildler. Senators Clark and GIilbsonl have done everythiing possible to aid Mr. Maxwell in his eflorts, and as a result the irrigation bill was passed. Maxwell is an 'Mlle, convincing and entertaiing spellaker, aihd with himn this mIatter is largely a laibr of love. Mr. \Vooldridge wished to consult the labor people and the business lmen. The people of llutte would lie required to pro vilde a suital,le hill in which to hold this meehting. They are tinder ino expense what evewr to Maxwell, as the association meets his expenses, treat Valls has over 70 illebiliers of the National Irrigation association, alt her people are iolly alive to the imnlportace of this llmatter. DANCING GEORGIE IS '! RECOVERING FROM FIGHT Neck Yoke Bill's Victim Will Not Die, but Live, as a Witness Against His Rival.
