"Give me water, or rather let me be
permitted to store up the waters of
Heaven that are wasted, and I can make
the whole North American desert as fer
tile and as fruitful as were the gardens of
Babvlon in the days of old."
These are the words of one of the ablest
senators : a man who has been more or
less in what was once laid down on our
maps as the "Great American Desert"
since his boyhood, and who has grown
gray in the United States Senate.
Reader. I have engaged with the Iride
pendent, for most generous pay, to lay
down the tools of husbandry here on my
mountain ranch by the great Bay of San
Francisco and make a long journey.
Oreeon. Washington, Montana. Dakota.
Colorado, these are some of the sections
named in the contract, where I am to look
closely at the progress of things and re
port thereon in a brief, plain way, with a
much greater regard for facts than nne
writing. I am especially asked to look
out for fair and safe investment for
Eastern capital; to report on farming,
stock-raising, milling, and most especially
on land investment. You will bear with
me then after this statement if 1 am
sometimes a bit prosy and statistical and
given over to quotations from senators,
governors, and so on, as above. It is not
always best to stand alone in our state
ments or to leave off figures, which they
say never He.
And now to begin: I
oacK to wnere i lett on when this paper
sent me to Mexico three years ago. I
must beg 3'ou to recall my account of the
reservoirs for water there"; the thousand
little artificial lakes that lie on the hot
and glaring mountain sides and down in
the deep valleys as you descend from the
snowy heights of Zacatecas and the silver
mines of Northern Mexico.
Well, those little lakes have been there
I hince time immemorial. The little Aztec.
hollowed them out with his little wash
bowl and small brown hands, just as his
descendants build the beds of railroads to
this day. For you must know that there
has never been a wheel-barrow in all
Mexico. The dirt is all scooped up by
the hand and then' borne on the head in a
little wooden bowl.
But to get on with the subject in hand :
I only wanted to recall the fact that it is
by these little artificial lakes that Mexico
My last article on this theme was of
a more recent date, and was called "The
North American Nile." This has been
translated into Spanish, and is made a
text for quite a book on agriculture and
irrigation in Mexico. You will please
remember that I attempted to show by
the ruined cities scattered along the banks
of the Colorado and in other parts of
Arizona, that this portion of our Republic
hud once been and could again be, under
American enterprise, all that the Nile has
ever been in power and population.
Bear with me further if I inform you
that it was this same paper which secured
to the "Great American Desert" an ap
propriation of a quarter of a million of
dollars at the last session of Congress for
the survey of that vast region.
And now let me recall the fact that I
advise all who have pluck and ambition
to try and get hold of land in Arizona,
or elsewhere adjacent, where land could
be bo had cheap, and I have done with
looking back or speaking of myself.
The 'contemplated trip will take in
much of this section of country. And
as I firmly believe with the Senator quoted
from at the head of this article, that the
"great desert," as it was once called, can
be made green, why, this must be the
place for investments where tremendous
returns are to be had for a small outlay
But the buyer of lands must now be
careful not to purchase the site of a reser
voir. It is not perhap8Ngenerally known
that Congress, at the last session, reserve d
all lands, in a very general way, that are
suitable or necessary for reservoirs in the
arid regions. We whirl along so fast and
are doing so much that it is doubtful if
one man in ten thousand is at all aware
of this reservation. And indeed, I doubt
if one man in ten thousand among us is
aware that Major Powell, the head of
topographical engineers for the United
States, is at this moment at work survey
mg the region described in the sketch
called -The North American Nile." But
it is a fact ; and it is a fact that a few far-
seeing and very shrewd men are following
his footsteps closely. Let me beg you, if
you caie for the development of our
country, to say nothing of your own
future, to follow his reports closely. It
would be a wise thing if some few shrewd
men could "pool in" and keep one of
their number with Major Powell in Ihe
field. Information thus obtained would
be of incalculable value to iuvestors.
I was asked to be bresent a meeting of
the prominent men west of the Rocky
Mountains in San Francisco not long
since, where this great question was to be
President A. T. Hatch stated that Con
gress had alread3r appropriated $350,000
for surveys, and that a committee of six,
of which Senator Stewart was one, would
meet in St Paul on August 1st, and thence
proceed to Nevada and Colorado to deter
mine what future steps would be advis
able. Senator Stanford was called upon
to speak. Said he :
"On the question of the value of irri
gation, there can be no two opinions.
The irrigation belt extends from the Rio
Grande to the British line, and covers an
area of about 1,200 square miles. I was
very much impressed when at San Diego
not long ago to see what they had don e
there. Their reservoir cost but $200,000,
and yet the water stored in it will irrigate
more than 40,000 acres. The people there
have let new light on the subject. I
know of my own knowledge of places in
Nevada where water could be stored to
irrigate millions of acres. At one point
on the Humboldt water could be stored
to irrigate a strip five miles wide and per
haps in all containing not less than
'There must be an entire revolution of
opinion in the East regarding our lands.
There are large areas where a chipmunk
could not live. Surveys must be made,
and whenever the land is redeemed,
poor men can go and make farms. As
the arid belt is now it is practically
valueless. The arid region of the country
is more than equal to all the country east
of Chicago. The homes that may be
made in it after a wise system of irriga
tiou are impossible to estimate. Billions
of dollars should not stop us at all from
doing whatever is necessary. The State
Board of Trade, and thosi who have been
invited to meet you here, are on the most
important question that has ever been
considered. I would like to seo you
follow it up and get the East out of its old
Here we have the ablest financier in
the United States, a ipan of senatorial
dignity, a man who lately gave twenty
million dollars to the endowment of a
university, telling us tbatc -billions of
dollars1 exp enditure sb ould not deter us
from redeeming the arid lands of Middle
America. Take a map and; .you will see
that his assertion abotrt-,the area being
larger than all that portion of the United
States east of Chicago-, is strictly within
the lines of actual measurement.
It is enough to take one's' breath away,
the magnitude of this proposition! It is
of far more importance to; the world than
was the discovery of gold'ln California.
The opportunities to make great and
sudden fortunes are greater, and surely
they are far more certain.. For who ever
ins money ov
would be from $5 to $10 an acre. Cer
tainly it would not be over one-tenth as
much as to clear land of timber: and there
is another thing about it. An irrigated
acre of land is worth double what an acre
is that has to depend on rainfall. Most
people who have given the matter atten
tion say my estimate is too low, and that
an irrigated acre is worth two or three of
those forced to depend on rainfall

American Desert," and never let go ono

You ask, Why this sadden action of
Congress and this impeitfous interest out
here in this vast enterprise? .
The answer is easy. India !
If you look at the wheal crop of India
you can read the whole .story. India is
feeding the world witti'bread-. And God
bless her for that; but it has called
America to the front in competition
And America cannot compete till she does
what India has done and is steadily doing.
And it is all enxressed in the question at
the head of this article, in the one word,
When we came out here and conquered
all this Southwest world from Mexico, wo
found they had water over the land, and
in this way obtained tremendous results
with but little labor. But 7d you Know
we despised all that? Why, I 'veu re
member hearing a preaqher preach with
all his might against it. His text "was to
the effect that we shall letjGod send rain
that "He sendeth his rain,? ;ctc:., etc.
Well, when England, overran India,
coming from hermurkv ahd misty Isles,
she could not comprehend4the motive of
pouring the waters on thp &il by canals
any more tnan we, wnen we came oui
here. And so India kept sliding uncK
and sinking down year after; year, with
now and then a dreadful fa mine. At last
she took to irrigation. Let me give a part
of the report from a single district for
"Any more striking illustration ni wie
social and fiscal value of canals could not
be civen. and its force is p.nfein'i'U so fur
as the state is concerned, by the fact that
the entire cost of the worksViiot including
ordinary repairs and establishment) on
the canals west of the Jumfla, up to the
present time, amounts ony to 119.474,
so that the returns of the year 1887-8 in
land and water rent have covered the
whole expenditure, leaving a surplus of I
nearly 26,800 from thbj'sqnrce alone."
Here we have the whole:th!ng in a nut
shell. Only India has about live year
the start. "But the Yankee is now well
awake, and he may yet overtake the

ford, must not deter "us from this
For my own part, I can only call upon
every member of Congress not to cripple
us by scant appropriations. If "need be
let these "desert lands" be doubled or
quadrupled even in price to pay for
what the English in India call "canals."
Only let us not be far behind.
To the Indiana American let me again
say, Get land ! get land ! get laud ! GVt a
great deal of land if you can, and then cut
it up into colonies, as tunny good men
have done out here in California. I shall
visit some of these fortunate colonies, and
shall see their life blood, the "'canal" next
week, and shall write you down the
details so that you may see J he future
and the power that lies in store for any
man wise enough to get a grod share of
desert land and divide it among his
fellows. I will now close this sketch by
an extract from the speech of Senator
Stewart.'of Nebraska, before the Califor
nia Board of Trade last week.
Said Senator Stewart:
"My plan is to first get the surveys and
then an appropriation each year for all
that we can. Wo are now allowed reser
voir right. We ought to have had them

into the defile a great dike
discovered. Thousands of conduits made
of masonry have -been found that are
perfect to-day. Remains of hydraulic
works have also been found in South
America that people in after centuries
did not know how to build.
"I did not think irrigation injures
health or produces malaria. I think it is
beneficial if property done. Look at the
island of Ceylon. Look at India. With
their mighty population they can't be very
unhealthy countries. Look also at the
valley of the Nile, where irrigation is the
"Of course you take any new country,
where you first turn up the soil, and you
will have malaria; but remember that
two-thirds of all our agriculture, but now
and for all time past, has been carried on
by irrigation. Nobody has understood
that agriculture was unhealthy.
"Rainfall bleaches the land too much .
That's what is the matter with a vast area

"Everybody is astonished over in Nevada
and in Southern California, to s:e what

It is the best kind of land there is. Take

Spain. In both the richness of the soil
is preserved, and the public hpalth is as

twenty years ago. We need irrigation as
far east as the ninety-eighth or ninety
ninth meridian, and from that to the
Pacific Ocean, with a little exception.
Few people know that at least two-thirds
of the agriculture of the globe is by
"It is not really as hard to overcome
the deserts as the forests, but this fact is
entirely new to the people of the East. I
wouldn't make the estimate now of what
it will cost to do the work we want done.
It will take more than 4,000,000, and
probably more than $10,000,000. All that
can be done with the $250,000 appropriat
ted recently is to survey a few initial
points. We will get more appropriations
each year hereafter. Major Powell
thinks Truqkee is a good point to begin
"One thiug we want to do, is to show
this committee what irrigation has done
Another is to show that irrigation does
not cause a monopoly of lands When
we have the surveys and estimates made,
and land still remains untaken, we can
then put the lands on sale in a body if
need be. I believe California is capable
of supporting 40,000,000, and I believe
that eighty or ninety per cent, of our
water is going to waste. Colorado has led
off and done better than any other state."
Senator Stewart then turned his atten
tion to other countries and, reading from
a report of British India, he co'ntiuued:
"British India only has 8o0,000 square
miles, while, it has a population of 250,
000.000. We have 3,000,000 square miles
and ought to support easily 200,000,000
people. There is no such a body of land
in the world as that of the Mississippi
basin that will produce crops without
"The trouble is that neither we nor our
English ancestors have been accustomed
to irrigation. In India about $1,000,000,-
000 have been spent on railroads and
irrigation in the last thirty years.
"Let us get the surveys, and make it
possible for the people to get the titles.
Then we will move along. Forty acres
of irrigated land is as safe for a family as
lou acres depending on rainfall."
senator & tan lord here asked Senator
Stewart if he had investigated the relative
cost of clearing and irrigating land . "It
is a most important matter," abided Sen
ator Stanford. to know iust what the
difference in cost, is."
"I was up in Washington Territory a
year ago responded Senator Stewart,
and asked what jt would cost to clear the
timber land there, and nobody put it at
less than $100 an acre. A fair estimate
of the cost of reclaiming desert lands
