    More free land for settlement: Coming of Milwaukee Road will give access to valuable homestead and timber lands in Washington. The construction of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railroad across the State of Washington to Puget Sound will place Seattle and the outside world in touch with much timber land in this state that has been overlooked on account of its inaccessibility. Some of the most valuable timber land in the State of Washington will be tapped by this road...Choice farm land in Washington sells for from $10 to $75 an acre, and even higher. When government land, equally as good, can be obtained practically free, it would be foolish for anyone to pay these high prices. less
