Harnapnrills will do you an enormous
amount of good just now, by purifying your
blood and building up your system so that

Preliminary Steps Taken to Organize
the New Levee District.
Tho Land Owners Preparing: for tlio
Commencement of work ou tho
East Levee .System.
A meeting of the Executive Committee
of Levoo District No. 1 was held yes
terday for tho purpose of perfecting .the
organization into a swump land reclama
tion district, to include ;ill those lands
lying between this city and Freeport, and
'cast of the Sacramento River, comprising
about S,OOO acres. Those present were
Chairman James O'Neil, Colonel James
McNasser, Carl Monger, Daniel Flint,
George Peters and William Curtis.
It will be remembered that the.se gentle
men wore, at a meeting of the land own
ers held at Oak Hall on July 20th last,
empowered to proceed in the matter of
effecting an organization as a swamp
tend reclamation district under the gen
eral laws of the Stilts. On investigation,
however, it was discovered that an ob
stacle existed in the shape <>f a statutory
law excluding all lands within two miles
of any incorporated city or town from the
operations contemplated by the general
laws governing reclamation districts.
It then became necessary to amend the
statute above noted, which was accom
plished during the recent session of the
Legislature, tans doing away with the ob
jectionable statute and giving the land
owners power to connect their levee sys
tem witn that of the city, aud with mu
tual benelicial results.
At the meeting held yesterday tho pre
liminary details relative to the organiza
tion were discussed, and ex-Judge J. \V.
Armstrong was retained as attorney for
the district, and J. (.'. lioyd was engaged
as engineer, with power to proceed in
making the necessary examinations and
surveys preliminary to adopting a gen
eral plan for reclamation.
Alter discussing the matter of contem
plated action relative to tho disposal of
the city sewage, the committee adjourned
to meet at the call of the Chairman.
The prospect now i:s that the low but
fertile lands lying south of the city and
between here and Freeport will soon be
placed beyond all reasonable danger of
being Hooded by tho Improvement of the
levee. The only tiling that saved the
leve? from giving way between here and
Suttorville last month was the breaking
of the Yolo levee in two places. It is
understood that the land-owners on the
Yolo side intend raising and broadening
their levee this summer, and if the same
be not done on the .Sacramento t-ido the
flooding of the low lands must follow.
Once made safe from inundation, these
lands will command great value, as they
are very productive, being never affected
by drought, and are capable of producing
several valuable crops each year. There
are no better hop nor vegetable lands in
the State, and yet, because of the danger
to which they aro yearly subjected, their
market and taxable values have been de
Moreover, the several thousand acres
embraced within what is known as "The
Pocket," lying between Oak Hall and
Freeport, lias for many years been prac
tically useless, and it is hoped that much
of this will be reclaimed aud made pro
The raising of the east levee below tho
city, and also the Front-street levee,
which must be done the coming summer,
will result in greatly strengthening prop
erty values in the city and vicinity.
