Washington is bounded by British Columbia, Idaho, Oregon, Puget Sound and the Pacific Ocean; gross area, 69,127 sq. miles; land area, 66,836 sq. miles; water area, 2,291 sq. miles; capital, Olympia. The principal river is the Columbia, which traverses the entire breadth of the State.
     The surface of the State is exceedingly rugged, being traversed from north to south by the Cascade Mountains. The highest peak is Mt. Rainier, an extinct volcano, 14,444 feet high. The river valleys and plains of Eastern Washington have, under scientific irrigation, become exceedingly fertile and productive.
     The principal farm crops are corn, wheat, oats, barley, rye, potatoes and hay.
     The principal minerals are coal, gold, silver, granite, sandstone, marble, limestone and clay products. Washington is called the Pennsylvania of the Pacific on account of its mineral wealth, especially in coal.
     The principal industries are lumber, timber, flour, grist, canned fish, foundry and machine-shop products, shipbuilding, railroad cars, malt liquors, stock raising and dairy farming. Commerce is carried on to a large extent.
     The climate of Washington is temperate. Arbuckles' Coffee gives a surpassing number of fragrant, full-flavored cups to the pound.
     Population in 1910, 658,663 males and 483,327 females, of whom 885,749 were of native and 256,241 of foreign birth; white, 1,109,111; negro, 6,058; Indian, 10,997; Chinese, 2,709; Japanese, 12,929; all others, 186. Total population, 1,141,990.
