FRIDAY, AUGUST 4, 1905. THE STATE OF IDAHO. The following, descriptive of our state, recently appeared as an editorial in the Portland Ore gonian: The interest the state of Idaho takes in the Lewis and Clark ex position, the Idaho building on the grounds, and the exhibit Idaho is making of its products and possibilities are all very striking. And Idaho has pub lished a book of nearly 300 pages, which for beauty and de scriptive power is a wonder. It has been prepared by the state bureau of immigration, labor and statistics, is well written and beautifully illustrated, and is no commonplace specimen of adver tisement of the attractions and resources of a state. Of our newer states none is making more rapid progress than Idaho. It is just at the be ginning of a marvelous career. Its possibilities of production are immense. Idaho is among the greatest of our mineral states, already, and the develop ment of its mines is but just be gun. Its stores of timber are scarcely exceeded even by those of Oregon or Washington. It is a vast area of productive soil, and its cereals, vegetables and fruits are surpassed nowhere. fruits are surpassed nowhere. Lying wholly west of the Rocky Mountains, and subject to the controlling influence of the Pa cific ocean, Idaho climate is equable and mild. Thenumerous and powerful streams that pour out of the mountain ranges afford water power perhaps greater than that of any other state, and inexhaustible supply of water for irrigation. "Keep your eye on Idaho!" That state is building railroads, opening mines, drawing upon the wealth of forests, pushing irrigation faster and more ex tensively than any other state, multiplying production every year by two, and astonishing everyone who saw it in early times and revisits it now. Water users in the Boise val ley have had their supply for irrigation cut down 20 per cent., on account of the unusual low water in the river and in order to give all points in the valley as nearly an equal amount as pos sible. As a result all crops will be a little short this year but by the rotation system adopted fair average yield will be main , •_, rm, , , . . ta led. 1 lie OIll\ relief tor this state of affairs is the proposed j government projects bringing ! canals from other streams with i I a a greater flow of water than is j carried by the Boise river, and ! in the construction of storage j reservoirs. This shortage of water is what lias been holding ! 0 the Boise valley back for many years and accounts for the much more rapid development taking place in the Twin Falls section, where there will be an abundance of water. When these govern projects are completed, however, there is assurance that all the land now in cultivation can be fully irrigated as well as the large amount of land still in its state. raw President Roosevelt, amidst all his cares, finds time to devote to his boys, and once every sum mer he takes them out camping expedition. This year they all boarded a boat and on a went off to some spot on Long! Island, where camp was pitched! entirely out of reach of the world, none but Private Secretary Loeb knowing where the family had j gone. When those boys grow j up, every last one of them will be I found loyal in the highest degree to their father. There are many I fathers who wonder why it is ; that their boys manifest but | little interest in them. These might learn a lesson from the ' president.—Boise Statesman. j General Passenger Agent Bur ley has refused excursion rates from Idaho to Portland on spec ial days, and says: "To offer further reduction of rates con gestion of travel, which would consequently follow, would be suicidal on our part. We have been doing our level best to take good care of t he eastern business. It is all important that this should be done, for the that it means great things from an immigration standpoint, in the future. Idaho will get her share of this business. If we were to promote special excur sions and make more attractive rates than those now in effect, it would of absolute necessity be nt the serious inconvenience and - expense of through passengers— theclass of visitors we should all be interested in properly caring for, that they may return to their homes favorably impressed with our country and our peo reason their homes favorably impressed with our country and our peo ple-" For Idaho day a special train of sleeping cars will be run j from Pocatello through to Port land, picking up passengers at J all stations on the Oregon Short 1 Line in Idaho, provided there is sufficient business in sight to justify it. To make this excur sion a success there should be an organization in each Idaho town for the purpose of recording the names of participants, prospect ive numbers in each case to be sent, through the railroad agent, to the general passenger agent ! at Salt Lake. ' ! !i Bad company is like a nail driven into a post, which after the first or second blow can be drawn out with little difficulty; but being once driven in up to the head, the pinchers cannot take hold to draw it out, which can only be done by the destruc tion of the wood.
