PRAISE FDfl T. O, , WARNER OP TEN. DLETON, EXTOLS THE STATE i!.!iint Letter PublWied In Indl wia rapcr. on tlie Roamm and Opportunities of Oregon Special Inducements for Men of Small Moans In tiio State Easterners Soon Get tlie Oregon Enthusiasm. The following excellent article on Oregon and her resource, was writ ten by T. C. Warner, linotype operator on the East Orcgonlan, for the Hart ford City (Indiana) Telegram, and Is reproduced to show the Oregon en thuHlasm which takes hold of east erners after a brief residence In the atate, Mr. Warner'havlng come to this slate from Fort Wayne, a few years ago. The article In as follows: You asked me In your recent letter why I am so greatly attached to the west, and particularly Oregon, my adopted state, and what advantages It offers over the east. This query has frequently been made and I will endeavor to satisfactorily answer It, but In so doing It will betiecessary to call your attention to some of Its many features which siirpans those of any other state In the Union, and win for Oregon the henrt of every eastern er who settles within her boundaries. You may not know that Portland the metropolis of the state, and metrnpolltean In every sense, Is a city of 200.000 Inhabitants, where are to be had all the advantages usually found In a city of similar size In the east, and in whose harbors may be seen ships bearing tho colors of all nations. I'ltrlland tho Beautiful. Here Is the coast outlet for the great resources of Oregon. This city occupies the most advantageous porI tlon on the Pacific coast, being at the head of navigation for ocean-going vessels, and practically at thp June tlon of two great rivers, one, the Co- lumbln, the largest west of the Rocky mountains, and for scenic beauty un surpassed, the other the Willamette, also a beautiful and navigable stream Tpua rortland Is a seaport with a fresh water harbor 100 miles Inland which gives her advantages over any of her sister cities on this coast From her docks were shipped the past year $11,000,000 worth of state products, and foreign Imports nggre gating $3,209,000 were discharged during the name period. Portland, with her unparalleled location, mag nlflcent scenic surroundings, and modern architecture, Is destined by nature's gifts and man's aid to be come famed as the world's most beau tlful city and the largest west of the Rockies, t Resources Are Varied. Oregon's resources are probably more varied than any other slate. Her agricultural and horticultural products comprise all that are grown In the temperate snne, besides many Indigenous to the tropics. In fruits, not only Is the variety extended, but for abundance and quality cannot be excelled, commanding the highest prices In the markets of the world. Its cultivation Is scientifically car ried on. and when I tell you you might eat your fill of Oregon-grown cherries or any other fruit. In the dark, without fear of devouring a ' worm (a precaution necessary In the eaot) you may doubt my veracity, but such Is tho case. Oregon lends, the world In timber - wealth, Is first In hop production and second In wool. In wheat production, one county alone, Umatilla, produces 1 per cent of that cereal raised In the United States, this year's crop amounting to nearly 6.000,000 bush els, which cost approximately 27 cents per bushel to produce and mar ket, selling at from 62 to 78 cents per bushel. The above is only one of the Illus trations why the former eastern far mers, now residents of this state, who, on the old esstern farms were barely able to make both ends meet, are now happy and contented to remain In Oregon and add to their bank ac counts. Money in Fruit As another Illustration of the won derful productiveness of the state, I might cite numerous instances of orchardists who formerly lived In your section, or my native state, Ohio, who on a 10-acre orchard are deriv ing anv Income of from $1500 to $2600 per annum, whereas on their eastern farms of 120 to 160 acres it was nip and tuck to get a balance on he right side of the ledger. What la true of wheat and fruit raising ap plies equally well to dairying and stockraislng. . Another element which tends to win for Oregon the everlasting loyal ty of Immigrants from other states Is her ' unmatchable , climate. Winters without blizzards; summers without heat prostrations and droughts showers without the terrifying eleC' trlcal accompaniment; winds without cyclones, summer nights with rest giving breeze from snow-capped mountains. Contentment tho Secret. I might go through the entire cate gory of Industries, tolling1 you of the wonderful productions of this great country, but when I come to the clos lhg' sentence of each It must always be the . same contentment. Con tentment for the tiller of the soil, for the mechanic, for the merchant, for the financier, In fact, for every toller, And where there Is contentment there Is happiness. . It la not alone of. the present that I am proud, but also when I look Into (he state's future possibilities a thrlU of pride that I am an adopted Ore gonlan surges through me. Of the total area of 61,277,440 acres of land, 14,786,766 are reserved, 26,762,026 acres have been appropriated, leav ing 19,739,649 acres still available for future homeseekers1 or for timber or m'nerals, or approximately an area as great as th entire state of Indiana, With the settlement of this vast ter ritory, a demand will come for more manufacturing Industries, more trans portation facilities, greater fields for r" i WIILUUII II ii i v-r 1 n rut ft M JXWtWHs II s I I u -iii y i ii ii i js.i ii ii I i a uuua iiii ) E " I Ii alii C i mM7. ki w r Tu i m A I .

All these are coming with great strides. The hurnesslng of the tre mendous wasted energy of mountain streams and rivers, being converted Into power and Irrigation projects by the federal government and private corporations, bids fair to make of Oregon the greatest and richest of any state in the Union. Men of Small Means Win. The opportunity for the man of moderate means to acquire a small tract of land from which by thrift and proper cultivation he can derive a competence more than sufficient for the support of a family, Is an lncen live for tho eastern Immigrant to settle In this state permanently. And when you see and partake of all these good things, and breathe the health-giving air and drink of the water from never-falling snows on mountain peaks, and tread the soli of abundance, Is It any wonder one be comes Imbued with the desire to ever live and die (at a ripe old age) In dear old Oregon?
