rxooraTEDI.T the first work in irrigation
which the government should undertake is
t lie construction of dam on the U!ln River
wt Stin Carlos, in Arigona. because this im
provement would not only bring under cul
i vat ion a larire area of arid land for the
use of white settlers, but would also relieve
the urgent needs of thousands of friendly
Indians, w ho are now in a starving condi tion
because tun wuter upon which they
have been dciicndcrd for centuries has been
diverted . by white settlers above them.
This imurovenent would be uot onl a strik

A Mew Plymouth in Idaho.
From the Land ot Sunshine.)
How to get the settlers for new dis'
tricts in the West, especially settlers
possessed of character and sufficient
capital, Is oae of the problems of which
we have never known too much. The
Plymouth Colony of Idaho furnishes
some light on this subject, although
neither an old nor a great settlement.
The Plymouth, effort began with the
adjournment of the National Irriga
tion Congress of 1894, held at Denver
in the autumn of that year. A few
who had been prominent in this move
ment cooceired the idea nf establish
ing a colony which should illustrate
the feasibility of makiug small farms
on the arid lauds. Localities in eight
States were examined before the site
was selected. What was wanted was
a tract of fertile soil, watered by a
completed irrigation system with
abundant supplies, and then, a local
interest which would be warranted in
backing an earnest effort with a pro
motion fuud of reasonable amount.
The right conjunction of favorable
conditions was found in the Payette
valley, in the southwestern corner of
Idaho, near the Oregon boundary.
Here was a large tract of the most
fertile beach lands, covered with tall
sagebrush. The point selected was
twelve miles from the Oregon Short
Lice railroad and the same distance
from the nearest town. A few settlers
had already located in the valley, but
practically it waa a wilderness. The
Payette river, one of the largest tribu
taries of the Snake, is a nobie perennial
stream, having suttieient volume at its
lowest stage to irrigate more land
thau the alley contains. The climate
of tue lucality mJ 0,3 described as the
w, ,i.M te-miwrat. nne While
Desl 'J Pe 01 u,u temperate zone. nne
tue extremes of winter cold and sum
mer heal are ver? considerable, it U
au excellent climate both for men and
for crops. It is suited also to the pro
duction, of the more delicate fruits,
such as prunes and peaches.
Having selected the land and secured
the necessary promotion fund, the
colony leaders weut East to enlist
settlers. The plan Of settlement which
had been mapped out had two or three
unique feature. In the first place, it
was desired that the eolonists should
be quite self-sufficient, and to this end
they were urged to diversiby their crops
so tha't they might produce the variety
of things which they would consume.
Exclusive fruit culture was believed
to be an evil which would in lime
I bring a harvest of disappointment-to
! those who bu'.it their hopes upon it.
' 1,1 tle -euond -pUce, it was thought
feasible for many, if not all, the set
tlers to assemble their homes in a
village center, so that they might
realize unusual social advantages from
the beginning. Finally, business co
operation was provided for by the for
mation of a company in which ail the
settlers were to be stockholders. This
! company was to own the townsite and
j BUCh simple industries as might be
created from time to time,

is time for a Kew Plymouth!" was
warmly echoed by a number of influen
tial men, of whom Edward Everett
Hale was foremost. A public meetiug
was held and a brief account of it tele
graphed to the newspapers throughout
i the country. Strangely enough, not a
single settler was obtained in Boston.
But, even more strangely, the Boston
meeting resulted iu the speedy enlist
ment of a fine nucleus at Chicago, to
w hich point the campaign was quickly
transferred as the result of the mani
festation of an unmistakable degree of
The Chicago work began with a
modest meeting at the Grand Pacific
Hotel early in March, 1805. These
meetings were continued at intervals
of one week over a period of nearly
two months. The Plymouth Society
of Chicago was formed at the first
meeting. Its membership gradually
increased, until 250 heads of families
were enrolled at the end of the brief
campaign. It is worth while to note
the fact that it was the colony plan,
especially the social advantages of
moving a number of families at one
time and grouping their homes in a
village center, that aroused the deepest
interest, rather than the advantages
of the locality in which the settlement
was to be made. Very little was said
about profits to be realized by the set
tlers. Their attention was riveted
upon the proposition of making homes
where they could work for themselves
and achieve an independence in the
midst of pleasant surroundings. ' la a
word, most of the things which colony
boomers do, the Plymouth promoters
left undone; while most of the things
colony promoters leave undone, the
Plymouth promoters religiously did.
At the seventh meeting, a committee,
consisting of five men aud two women,
was chosen to visit Idaho and report
upon the location and colony plan.
The society defrayed every cent of the
committee's expenses, instructing it to
make the trip unaccompanied by the
promoters, to travel just as settlers
would be expected to do, and to receive
none but the most ordinary courtesies
while in Idaho. The Society desired
an honest report. However, it wss
found that the location and feasibility
of colony plan were all that had neen
represented, and the report was in the
bighest degree favorable. ,
When the committee returned, actaal
settlers were invited to declare them
selves by making a substantial pay
ment on account of land and colony
stock. Fourty-four families respond
ed, trustees were chosen, work on the
town site ordered to begin, and a few
montiis later the main body of the
colonists went forward. Theysucceed
ed in making what is perhaps the
tuost notable settlement in Idaho.
They have prospered steadily from the
beginning and many other settlers
have followed them to the Payette val
ley. The irrigation works and large
tracts of laad, which originally be
longed to an Eastern company, have
passed into the hands of these settlers.
The original colony plan has been
carried out to a large extent, especially
its social features. These have been a
great blessing to the settlers.
The lesson of the Plymouth effort is
that one good way to get settlers is by
means or. meetings, lectures ana the
formation of clubs, and by encourag
ing investigation by committees com
posed of intelligent, unprejudiced men
and women. Another lesson is that
the ciass of homeseekers is far more
interested io getting homes and a 1 i v-
ing than in glittering promises of
enormous -profits to be obtained in a
few years without much labor. An'
other prime advantage of the Plymouth
plan which should not be overlooked is
that settlers like to be moved in groups
rather than by single families. Actu
ally, it seems easier to get forty fam
ilies to move to a new country to
gelher thau to get one alone.

General Funston. On the return
from this campaign Major Bishop sent

Jerome, Ariz., Aug. 5. At noon on
Saturday the smeltermen of the Unit

strike after a conference with Senator
W. A. Clark, who was here at the
time. The men asked for an eight-
hour shift, which was not granted.
Senator Clark left here to day with no
intimation of an early settlement of

comprise engineers, electricians, boil-I

number at least 1,000, have been com

There is no indication of an early
adjustment of differences existing be
tween the company and its employes.
