the Valley not to Hurry
to Sell Out.
James J. Hill, president of the
Great Northern Rai'road company,
and a party of other officials of the
Great Northern and Northern Pacific
railroads arrived in the city today
noon. They were welcomed by Ar
thur Gunn representing the Commer
cial club and Walter Olive and D. A.
Beal, representing the Fair assocition.
The party was taken immediately
to the fair grounds where a half hour
was spent looking over the fruit and
other farm exhibits. All were very
much interested in the wonderful pro
ducts of the valley . After the fruit
inspection was over Mr. Hill was es
corted to tbe grand stand to make a
short speech. After an introduction
by Mr. Beal, Mr. Hill said in part:
" When I first came to this valley
thirteen years ago I slept in a ilttle
shr.nty. There were only a few set
ters at the mouth of the Wenatchee
iver. When I drove to the grounds
today I was given a most pleasnt sur
prise. I saw that the years and money
spent in building the road to tbe Pa
cifio bad not been spent in valD. In
civs section )uu people fJCvw W . %
remarkable results. I learn that We
natchee will s?nd out 15,0000,0 bush
els of win at this year. Yet you have
only legun t) make yourselves known.
Waht you need is the right sort of
transportation so that you may proper
ly market your fruit. This the Great
Northern railroad will furnish. Let
me advise yon people who have built
up this valley not to be in hurry to
sell out. You have worked hard and
can make as much out of the land as
tne man who wishes to buy it.
" I learn that you have a thousand
cihldren in your schools. Take care
of the young people, the older ones
will soon be gone.
"In closing I want to say that the
pioneers who settled on the laud here
were not the only pioneers. The men
who came here and built up enterprises
showing their faith in Wenatchee,
were pioneers too."
