The growth of values has kept pace with the increase in population, and the notion that Dakota is filled with poverty-stricken settlers is over turned by the result of the inqui ries made by Bradstreet's. The- actual .value of property . in the territory is carefully estimated at $320,000,000, or 533 per capita. This is far in excess of the per the Southwest.-! IS FalksV Schlitz' and . Anheuser. capita value in most of the South ern states according to the returns just collected by the Tradesman,of Chattanooga. For example, the -per capita value of all. property in Alabama, including railroads, is only $41S. The state debt of Ala- ; bama is over 510,000,000, while the ' bonded debt of Dakota' is little more than $1,000,000, bearing in- ' terest at from four to six per cent. ... The total railway mileage of ' Dakota is 4333 miles. This is ex- ceeded in only 11 states in the Union. Its railroad mileage is greater, even in proportion, than "," Kentucky, and as great as that of ' Iowa. In 1887 Dakota raised 63,-' 000,000 bushels of wheat, which is . more than the production of wheat , in any state. The admission of ' the territory into the Union as . two states will give an impetus to the growth, and what is now Da kota will become on all accounts a most important section of the United States. Milwaukee -Sentinel. The Arid Region. In his letter to the secretary, Prof. Powell says thatit is proper to consider that two-fifths of thf whole area of the United States inclusive of Alaska, is dependenijj-; upon irrigation for its agricultn- ral operations; .that it is in the main upon these lands that settlers upon the public domain are to make their homes, and that there are already many people in the region of arid lands engaged in mining and other enterprises anxious for opportunities to settle down upon public lands. He rec ommends the insertion of the fol lowing clause in the sundry civil appropriation bill: "For the pur pose of investigating the extent to which the arid regions of the United States can be redeemed by irrigation and the segregation of the irrigable lands in such arid regions and for the selection of sites for reservoirs and other hy draulic works necessary for the storage and utilization of the wa ter for irrigation, and the preven tion of floods and overflows and to make the necessary maps, ' in cluding the pay of employes in field or office, the cost of all in struments, apparatus and material and all other necessary expenses connected therewith, the work to be performed by the Geological Survey under the direction of the Secretary of the Interior, the Bum of 350,000, or so much thereof as may be necessary, to be immedi ately available." The report which accompanies this letter shows that investiga tions Jiave been prosecuted in Nevada, Montana, Colorado and New Mexico. These investigations are described at great length. Several recommendations for leg islation are made. Among other things, Prof. Powell suggests that it may be wise to cede the lands reserved for reservoir sites to the states and territories, under cer- -tain conditions and restrictions, which will effectually prevent their ever becoming ,the property of individuals. He also suggests that the proposition to reserve ir rigable lands for sale, settlement and occupation until it shall have been restored under the homestead laws, by proclamation of the Pres ident, is worthy of consideration.
