From the above official quotation
our members will see that tho question
of moisture Is certainly solved In this
favored locality. We could continue
to quote at length from this same re
port, but the sum and conclusion
reached Is that the Upper Snake river
valley is the best watered region of
the west.
Our location is situated immediately
on the railroad, tributary to the high
way from the Puget Sound to Ogden,
the gateway of the inter-mountain
country, being on the main line from
Pocotella to Butte, Mont., the greatest
copper producing region in the world.
The Oregon Short Line, which tra
verses the Upper Snake river valley, is
managed by progressive men who take
a personal interest in every newcomer
and endeavor to do what lays in their
power to promote his best interests.
The train service is excellent and no
discomfort will be experienced In re
moving to our new homes.
The location of the Home Makers
Settlement lies 1 miles west of the
Oregon Short Line and extending 8
miles south and west from Idaho Falls,
in Bingham county, Idaho. The entire
track is located in an irrigation dis
trict and is watered by two large ca
nals. Idaho Falls is a thriving city
of over 2,000 inhabitants, has large
business houses, a large flouring mill
run by water power, electric lights
generated by water power, gravity
water works system, seven churches,
large school houses, two good hotels,
two newspapers, one brewery; is a
junction point of the Oregon Short
Line, and, in short, is a city in keep
ing with the rich and rapidly develop
ing surrounding country. Much of the
land under canals is under cultivation
and yields magnificent crops.
The history of irrigation is the his
tory of scientific farming. Fifty years
of irrigation in the arid regions of the
west have demonstrated certain facts,
beyond the possibility of a doubt, and
among them are the certainty of good
crops, perfect development, large yield
and never a failure. For once man is
independent of nature. The returns
are larger on irrigated lands than
those dependent on rain and it is
known that 10 acres will produce more
than five times that area in a country
where the farmer waits for showers,
which do not always arrive on time.
Speaking from a strictly business
point, what would an eastern farmer
give in hard dollars for water on his
fields at the time he wants it and pro
vided he could get all he wanted of it?
The senate special committee some
years ago, speaking of Utah farms,
said they found that the average farm
ren sketch showine a lateral on the spttl-.
ment lands. TTaken from ohotocranh 1
c J
consisted of 25 acres. There is good.
hard sense at the bottom of this. A 25
acre farm, properly cared for and
scientifically managed, is enough to
engage a man's attention, and when
"worked with brains" will yield a
handsome revenue. Hundreds of
farms in Utah are not larger than 10
acres, and a farm of 50 acres is con
sidered large. A large population is
thus supported and the farmer does
not strive to handle more than he can
successfully manage.
For the ordinary man forty acres
will be all he can conveniently farm.
If more is taken it will prove an en
cumbrance unless it is put into alfalfa,
and then the farmer wm need extra
help. It may be surprising that in
Utah under exactly the same condi
tions as prevail in our settlement,
many families make a comfortable
living on ten acres. We do not advise
our members to take more than forty
acres unless they have sufficient help
to properly work the same. Many
fail because they attempt to farm more
land than they should where a smaller
amount properly tilled would bring
bigger returns.
Making the change from locating on
what is termed "dry farming" to
farming under irrigation made it nec
essary to pay much more for our lands.
While it has been necessary to pay
tnese advanced prices we have secured
land worth four times the former in
productiveness. It is a well known
fact that as nruch and more can be
produced by proper handling, under
irrigation, and with almost absolute
assurance of annual crops as can be
raised on four times the amount of
land dependent wholly upon rainfall.
After a meeting of the directors of the
company at which the entire ground
was carefully gone over it was de
cided to adhere to the original plan
as given in the prospectus, except it
was found necessary to reduce the
'number of acres to be allotted to mem
bers and to eliminate the rebate bond
feature from the present settlement.
By making these two changes we will
be able to make an entire success of
the undertaking. Every member will
receive the same value for his money,
less in acreage, but more in value.
The amount of shares required for
the various allottments will be found
further on. With the two exceptions
above noted the plan of the Home
makers' settlement remain the same
as heretofore. "
The cost of location stock remains
as before, namely $25 each. The fol
lowing allottments include water

Under the present arrangement, the
canals being completed our members
will be enabled to move onto their
holdings this fall if they so desire.
Buildings can be erected, the fields
cleared and everything put in readi
ness for spring plowing. The small
laterals can be plowed out and the wa
ter led to the proper places on the land.
When all this can be done during the
winter months the farmer's time can

never regret it When he gets uneasy
buy hjm a piece of land and let him
show his worth. You probably would
not have a home yourself if there had
not been cheap lands. Now you have
accumulated and laid up considerable
money, open up your, purse and give
the boy a chance. Have him join the
Home Makers and become prosperous
like yourself and you will enjoy the lift
you gave him as long as you live.
No allottments will be made until
the membership is filled. We are do
ing all In our power to finish this part
of the work at the earliest possible
date. Members can help much by se
curing their friends and neighbors.
Nothing will be gained by rushing in

we are ready.
Members who subscribed for location
stock under the old plan, before Irri

our location, are given an opportunity
to change their applications to the

do not desire to make the change will
have their money refunded on application.

welfare of all alike Special rates will
be secured for the members and their
effects when we ate ready to place
them on the lands.
Members desiring to do so will be
given an opportunity to rent the com
pany lands adjoining their own on
crop rental for a year or two. The
company's alternate tracts are held
at a minimum price of $20 per acre
and will not be sold for a less amount.
Land under cultivation and some
improvement readily brings from $20
to $40 per acre at the present time
and we feel confident that in less than
three years our lands will be worth $50
per acre. The tract is especially
adapted to sugar beet growing and ef
forts are now being made to secure the
location of a sugar factory in our vi
cinity. The Immigration into the
Snake river valley of Idaho during the

great that in one more year the entire
valley will be filled and every avail

sence of alkali in the soil is a feature
much prized.

Home Makers Notes
The Home Makers Company does
not make it compulsory for members
to remove to the lands immediately.
We aim to sell location stock to those
only who intend to make their homes
on the settlement lands. Some will
want to remove as soon as the allott
ments are made, others will not be
ready to go until spring, and perhaps
Those who have in mind joining the
Home Makers and share In the benefits
to be derived thereby should attend to
the matter at once. Delay gains noth
ing, besides will be the cause of many
being unable to secure location stock.
terprise is now an assured fact. Those
who- have been holding back hereto
fore are now coming in, and our mall
is increasing daily.
We regret our inability to provide
homes for many who have written us,
but are unable to raise sufficient
money to secure location stock. We
are willing to do all we, can, ..but, of
course, cannot furnish land free. 5
In this issue of The Independent we
again repeat the general write-up of
our location, the production of the
valley, the climatic conditions, the
purity of the water, etc. We do this in
order that all can be fully informed
and save us answering many ques
tions at length by letter. Many have
written for back copies of The Inde
pendent containing Mr. Mary's letters.
We regret to say that we are unable
to supply back copies, the entire is
sues being exhausted. These letters
have aroused great interest all over
the west and have been read with
much interest by thousands.
Our old friend, Mr. L. L. Trefren,
formerly treasurer of Hooker county,
Neb., but now a resident of Ashland,
Oregon, writes under date of May 5
last in reply to a letter of inquiry re
garding a location for our settlement
as follows: "My choice for your pro
ject would be Idaho on the Snake river
or some of its tributaries. This state
has no very choice lands that could be
purchased at a reasonable price ex
cept in eastern Oregon and there it is
very cold. But in Idaho are large
tracts of land that can be irrigated
that are as fine land as ever I saw. I
think the state would be very glad to
welcome such a project as yours in the
valley of the Snake river. The winters
are not hard and prunes, peaches, ap
ples, in fact all kinds of fruit grow as
freely as in Oregon or California. I
have thought seriously of removing to
Idaho to live myself and may yet. In
eastern Idaho I saw the finest vege
tables I ever saw grown and every
one was prosperous. On the Snake
river there are long stretches, in places
hundreds of miles, where steamers
'drawing 10 to 12 feet of water can be
run. Coal is plenty and timber in the
hills or mountains is also plenty. The
country looks hard to a man who does
not understand the sage brush lands,
but get water on it and one acre is
worth five of prairie soil. The land
about Boise City was once sage brush,
but now is the prettiest of all the coun
try I have seen east or west Should
you conclude to come west with your
colony any information I can give is
at your command. Yours truly,
Mr. Trefren is an old acquaintance
and had been a resident of Nebraska
for twenty-five years or more before
his removal to Oregon. He is a man of
honor and high standing and we knew
his "opinion would be valuable to our
members. However, for some reason
his letter was mislaid and not opened
until this week and we were glad to
see that our choice of location coin
cides with his judgment
Press dispatches from Boise an
nounce the finding of oil in the Snake
River Valley in Idaho at a depth of 250
feet. Six rigs are at work drilling in
We might proceed to write up our
Home Makers enterprise in glowing
terms and flowery phrases, and picture
our location as a veritable garden
teaming with all the good things that
go to transform life into a sweet
dream and render existence on this
mundane sphere a pleasure rivaled
only in the New Jerusalem, but we
prefer to confine ourselves to hard
facts plainly told. We do not desire
to present a picture to our members
which when brought face to face would
cause disappointment. Therefore we
say ours is no Paradise nor do the
streams flow with milks and honey.
There are no fatted calves ready to be
led to slaughter at the beg of the set
tlers. Our members will be placed on
the richest soil mother earth pos
sesses, they will have . an exhaustless
supply of water with .which to add
moisture to growing crops, a climate
positively unexcelled and water as
pure as crystal. Close by cedar grows
on the higher lands which is at the
settlers' command for fuel and fencing,
but not for the purpose of sale. A good
native lumber can be had in the Black
foot mountains to the east which can
easily be hauled by train. There is an
unlimited amount of building stone
within hauling distance. These are
some of the natural advantages at our
command. It remains for the Home
Makers : to develop them and bring
about the change which only applica
tion and labor can render. We are
willing to take our chances with our
members and feel confident, nay posi
tive that success and prosperity awaits
all who enter and join this great
home-making enterprise.
We would like to ask, has anyone
ever heard anything derogatory to the
Upper Snake River Valley in Idaho
from persons who live there and are
industrious? Has anyone ever heard
of a crop failure when proper atten
tion was given to them? Has anyone
ever heard a complaint against Its
climate or its water? There Is per-;
haps no country but what one can find
some of Its inhabitants who are dis
satisfied,, but not many where their
labor is sure to be rewarded. In the
Snake River Valley crop failure is un
known and if dissatisfied inhabitants
are found the reason can generally be
traced to their constitutional aversion
to manual labor. The industrious
Inhabitants are all prospering.
We are in receipt of many letters ap
pealing to us to take them into the
Home Makers and allow them time in
making payments. Much as we would
desire to help everyone to a home we
cannot possibly sell location shares
on a time basis. All who have studied
our plan can see that it is impossible
for us to do so. The settlers' allott
ments are placed at a very low figure.
It takes much hard labor and expense
to gather. the settlers together. The
object is to supply homes at the very
lowest figure and have the settler out
of debt when he starts in on his new
home. If we could take members on a
time basis our membership would
have been filled and overflowing long
before this time.
In answer to inquiries- as to freight
and passenger rates to the Home Mak
ers settlement we will say that rates
on imlgrant movables from Sioux City,
Omaha,. Council Bluffs, St. Joseph,
Leavenworth or. Kansas City is 50
cents per 100 lbs. Minimum weight,
20,00 lbs., Including not to exceed ten
head of live stock. Will pass one man
one way if car contains live stock.
Passengers rates vary and members
can secure information by addressing
nearest U. P. agent. As to securing
special rates for our members, every
thing will be done by the company to
obtain the very best concessions favr
orable to the , Home Makers. When
the time comes we will arrange so that
where possible several parties may
join In shipping their goods and thus
effect considerable savtng.
Some of our members are getting
anxious to go to the new settlement.
To such we say, have patience, noth
ing can be gained by going before ev
erything is ready. Remain where you
are, we will tell you when we are
ready. We regret that some have
started overland when we have right
along urged against such hasty ac
tion. Some people know more than
those who have had experience and
are consequently not to be advised.
For the past two weeks it has re
quired about sixteen hours' labor each
day to keep up the work in our office
and even then we are at times unable
to do so. We could be saved much
of this labor if people would read The
Independent closer. Hundreds of ques
tions put to us have been answered
over and over in The Independent dur
ing the past few months.
Members should remember that they
must provide for themselves from the
time they locate on their lands until a
crop is produced, the same as in any
country on earth. While work can no
doubt be obtained in the valley and
surrounding mining regions, yet if all
depended on securing employment tho
chances are some would meet with dis
appointment. Everyone will find plen
ty to do in preparing his land for
crops, and ought to go provided so he
can devote his time In that direction.
Many ask us the following: After
the first payment is sent in with the
application for location stock, when
will the balance be payable? This
question is answered on page 9 of the
Prospectus and is made a part of the
terms in the application. The time
when the balance is payable cannot be
definitely determined until the mem
bership is filled. When that has been
accomplished thirty days will be given
members to pay in the balance. The
money is then used to pay for the larfd.
No time payments are contemplated
in the purchase of location stock,
therefore parties applying for shares
should be prepared to meet payment
when the call is made.
If after a careful reading of our plan
of home-making, it meets with your
approval, send in your application at
once for such amount of location stock
as will meet your ' requirements and
means. Send remittance to the
1245 N St, Lincoln, Neb.
With the address on the wrapper of
jour paper you will find the date at
which your subscription expires. This
Is to keep our readers acquainted at
all times with the condition of their
subscription accounts. What does

For Register of Deeds
Dear Sir: Having contributed to the
material interest and growth of this
county for the past twenty-six years,
and served in the war of the rebellion
from 1862 to 1J64, participating in
many of the severest battles as a vol
unteer without bounty or pension, by
the advice of many, friends I am a can
didate for the office of register of deeds
before the fusion conventions of this
Hoping my personal acquaintance
with you will justify a favorable con
sideration of my claim, i will pledge
myself to a strict and careful atten
tion to the. duties of the office. Yours
most respectfully,
Business Men AH Over Nebraska
Cheerfully Become Members of the
Advisory Board to the End That
They May Aid the
In Its Commendable Effort to Build
Up Home Life Insurance and Save
to the State the Frightful Drain of
$1,500,000 a Year.
, The Bankers' Reserve Life associa
tion again announces to the people of
the west and particularly to the people
of Nebraska that heat and drouth have
not hindered the good work of its field
force of life underwriters, but the bus
iness of August will break all previous
The Bankers' Reserve Life associa
tion has written more business In the
aggregate, on a superior class of risks
and upon a better policy than any alien
competitor doing business in Nebras
ka and challenges the largest of its
competitors to a comparison of aggre
gate risks, a. character of risks and
of class of policies issued.
The Bankers' Reserve Life associa
tion boasts not because of its phenom
enal growth and of its extraordinarily
low death rate. It boasts not of econ
omy of management and prompt pay
ment of death claims. It boasts not
because It writes more Nebraska busi
ness every month of the year than its
most aggressive alien competitor.
These are facts so well known and
accepted now as to require no boast
ing. But
The Bankers Reserve Life associa
tion does boast of the modern, prog
ressive, up-to-date policies it offers its
patrons and challenges the world of
life Insurance to present as liberal,
progressive and profitable a form of
investment insurance. It claims to
have a policy unexcelled in the world
and its underwriters can demonstrate
the fact on demand. Not only so, but
The Bankers' Reserve Life associa
tion boasts of an advisory board of
about 400 members In Nebraska, the
choicest business men in the state.
This board is back of the company
with its moral and financial support,
and this board alone without the other
attractive , features .which make for
the success of the enterprise would be
a sufficient moral and commercial
force to make the company win.
The Bankers' Reserve Life associa
tion, B. H. Roblson, president, was
founded to win and Is managed to win
quickly. No malicious alien competi
tor with a contemptible anonymous
printed circular or any form of covert
attack can undermine this company In
Nebraska and thus far the alien life In
surance trust has neglected to accept
any of the challenges of the Bankers'
Reserve Life for an open fight. The
simple fact Is the Bankers' Reserve
Life association is the most popular
life company in Nebraska, and
of alien companies are being made
every week. B. H. Robison, president,
Omaha, Neb., needs and must have one
hundred and fifty more agents and In
vites all experienced men to write him
for terms. Inexperienced men of abil
ity, character and , address are - also
