Nature has not only been favorable to a. dam site and reservoir site, bub she has been favorable by put ting a vast area of land in just the position "where it can be irri gated through ditches from this dam and this reservoir land ut terly unproductive, land that cannot be used for anything else but land holding "within its elements the riches that nature has deposited there, waiting the arri val of water that man can turn upon it through an irrigation plant; land now worth nothing, I jjffbut with water upon it, worth from forty to fifty, yea, an hun dred dollars per acre. I am not exaggerating about that. It is land that means gardens, not farms; land that will produce grain, vegetables, fruits, the vine everything that can be grown on the soil in a favorable locality and under proper climat ic conditions. It means homes for thirty or forty thousand "ec ple where now there is only a desert. Is ;t not worth while to try this experiment? "Bub the Senator says let us wait until the irrigation commit tee of the senate has proposed a general, scheme for irrigation throughout the country. Mr. President, we are not readv for any general irrigation scheme. Congress in my judgment would be unwise, would be almost crim inal in the expenditure of money if it entered at the present time upou any great irrigation plan. "Why? We have not had enough practical experience. You may theorize and theorize until the rivers run dry and congress will not he any better informed than it is now as to what we can do in a practical way for the irrigation of the arid wastes. We need the experiment: and 2,000,000 to demonstrate on the Gila river whether irrigation can be made financially successful; whether we can make our desert bloom, whether we can find homes for happy millions, will be money well expended, The senators who ask of the West to stand with them and vote millions as a donation to the shipbuilders of the United States ought to be willing to stand by us in the Yest to give us a million or two now and then for the develop ment and the experiment of this great problem of national. irriga tion. The senator from Connecticut, Mr. President, has "just told us about what has been done with our public domain; that when we bought it from the Indians, through our various treaties, we did it on the pretense that we were to sell it for better prices to the people of the United States. Ah, Mr. President, wo might have been justified in expending many millions more in purchas ing the lands from our Indians if we had no other purpose than to open them as free homes to the workers of the United States that, they might occupy them, till them, cultivate them, and make happy homes.

Our national, indus trial, "agricultural and financial system is of such a character that the life blood in its arteries pulsates throughout every part, the blood of national prosperity ilows from every part to every part, and whatever upholds one hand of the nation maintains the other. I can turn and say to the sena tor from Connecticut that every home in a western valley, that every acre of land upon our lolains reclaimed from the desert, that every blade of grass made to grow where none has grown before, that every fruit tree whose spreading shade means shelter and comfort for the chil dren of the west is a direct ben efit to every business and every home and every citizen of the state of Connecticut. Mr. President, west of the hun dred and second meridian in the United States there is a vast ter ritory two-thirds of our area on this continent upon which Cod's rain does not come in great abundance. It is a land rich in natural resources. It is a land of mountains filled with mineral wealth. It is a land of forests, with valuable timber. It is a land of extensive facilities. It is a land of streams and of val leys. There are no richer fields, no broader opportunities for de velopment than is to be found upon the plains and valieys and among the mountains of the west. The teeming population of the east will multiply and mul tiply. It must find an outlet, and there is r.one except to the west. The great centers will be crowd ed. There must be an overflow somewhere. It is to the west and the south. We are a nation of 75,000.000 people. The time is coming and statesmanship should see it and legislate for it when we will be a nation of 750,000,000 and will need every tillable foot of American soil up on -which, to support our popula tion. Are we, then, foolish? Can we be charged with misdi rection? Are we in the west to be scouted at when we simply ask for a little appropriation of a hundred thousand dollars to have just one irrigation scheme properly investigated, properly laid out, properly estimated for. that we may know what we can do along these lilies;'' Homes For niilioris. The new homes of the future ! must be found on irrigated kinds. I There are, according to accepted' I government reports, some 74,-' ! 000,000 acres of rich western' I land capable of irrigation if the western waters are properly con-" served. . Irrigation is not an experiment in the United StateSj and there is no question raised as to the feasibility of this reclamation,- but irrigation in a? private way has reached its lim it. But since, under irrigation yields are very large, a few acres1 of this land would generously support a: family, so that with the lands irrigated rural homesv would be provided for millions' of citizens, waiting and anxious to go upon them. The Los Angeles Times is giv-" ing its readers their money's worth, and more too.
