THE HON. CHAUNCEY M.
In an Address to the Alumni Association of Yale University, said of his recent tour through the Southern States: 41 The net results of this visit to the South, to my mind, is just this?that THE SOUTH IS TH E BONANZA OF THE FUTURE. We have developed all the great and sudden opportunities for wealth?or most of them?in the Northwestern States and on the Pacific Slope, but here is avast country, WITH THE BEST CLIMATE IN THE WORLD, with conditions of health which are absolutely unparalleled, with vast forests untouched, with enormous veins of coal and iron which have not known anything beyond their original conditions; with soil that, under proper cultivation, for little capital can support a tremendous population; with conditions in the at? mosphere for comfortable living, winter and summer, which exist nowhere else in the country; and that is to be the attraction for the young men who go out from the farms to settlement, and not by immigration from abroad, for I do not think they will go that way, but by the inter? nal immigration from our own country, it is to become, in time, as prosperous as any other section of the country, and as prosperous by a purely American development."
