Preparing for an Active Campaign All

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

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

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.

"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

"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
