Whereas, A committee from the
Board of the Yazjo-Mieti aippi Delta
Levee Commissioners, has this day
presented a proposition to this Board
to share equally with the said Ymo
Mississippi Uel a L'vee Board the ccst
of repairing that portion of the line
Of levee formerly built by th is board
and extending horn the north bound
ary Hue of Bolivar county into Coa
homa county about sixteen miles; and
AY ii ekiias, tbe proposition bas re
ceived that careful and thoughtful
consideration demanded by the gravity
of interests at stake, i!s poseible effect
upon the prosperity cf tlie wbole
"Yazoo Delta, and a lively sense of tbe
duty owing horn this boa d to its con
litiohtd, That neither a setim of
dnty to our constituency would war
rant, nor considerations of fulr deal
ing and neighborly kinilncm toward
our sister board .demand, tliat this
board sbeuld share in tbe exponas of
miinti ininga line of levee not within
iU territory, and add that much to ita
already disprcportlona'e burden, in
the work of levee protection for the
Yazoo Daltfl. And that we may not
appear fbe actua .ei by siltlsn mo
tiv?s in rejecting a proposition appar
ently fair, or to be wanting in a due
sense of our responsibility in the all
important matter of levee protection,
we ' recite .the following facta and
reasons for our tction: At an early
date, and when this board was the
only existing levee organization in the
Delta, it built into Coahoma county,
for tbo greater rafety of its district,
the lice of leveo in question, and
up to a recent date has
maintained it. The money actually
expended by this b?nni, in ita con
struction iu 18(17 and pubpcqucnt
maintenance, amounts to &Ut),r.'H 2ft.
Under the law which organized the
Upper Board tbat levee is now in ita
territory; is its property; nna witn ex
press provision in the act that no part
of the above sum shall be repaid to
tbia binrJ. if any duty then devolved
upon this bosrd to share in it cost, it
would seem that we were entitled to a
heavy credit .This board hm within
the limits ot its own territory about
200 roll) s of levee to maintain. The
Upper Board, including tbe levos now
In question, has only about 100 miles.
Our estimated revenue for the present
year is $243,807 01. Our necessary ex
penses are $24(1000. Of this latter
amount $200,000 is required for actual
construction. The mt fund in the
hands of our BiBter bond, and which
can be appropriated to construction
aid repair, amounts to $330,000. Tbe
tenitory of tbe upper district is
arg-r, and it capacity, if it so
chooses, to piy a levee revenue is
greater than ours.
The levee in question io doubtless
important to the perfect safe ty of our
di-trict. For that roafon we built it,
when there was no other organization
authorized by law to do to. It is
grca'lymoie important to thena'oty
oi a larye part of the upper diitriut;
it is within the limits ot that district,
s defined by law. Tiint district has
the ability to maintain it, especially as
the tstirauted cost of the work coots
. sary to be done on it during t ho pres
ent jearwill n.t cxeeod $20,0(;, anil,
as stated in the able opinions of the
At'otney tienoinl and Hon. W. P.
llairif, the board of that district not
only hs the legal ponor, but it is its
legal duty to maintain said leveo.
The fact that a portion of this dis
trict would suffer from a crevauo in
Ibis levee ought rot to and cannot
enter into this question. The tame
thing is true of any la'gsaid impor
tant section in tbe line of the Upper
Board's ievee, and it is cqua'ly true
that the upper district would sutler
severely f.ora crevascos at Kosodale
Kiverton and other Important sections
of tbe levee in this district, and colely
maintaioed'by this board. Each dis
tri t is necessarily dependent for its
perfect safety upon the efficient main
tenance of tbe other's line of levee.
The Delta is divided bylaw into two
districts aod upon each is imposed the
duty of leveeing i s own river front.
For twenty years this board has en
deavored faithfully to perform that
duty. The cost bas been treat, the
taxation onerous. We would not feel
jti tifkd in adding to the burden im
posed upon us by law, by assuming a
part of that; which is legally imposed
upon our s'lter district.
Jttsolvfd furOitr, That, urged by
genuine tollcitide for the safety of
the wh jle Delta, and bslieving that
its prosperity as a wbole and the en
viable reputation which it is acquir
ing aV.toaJ, depend! upon the maln
tevJiT.e of r.n eiliaioat levee system
s'.ong in entire front, this board feels
that it would receivo the hearty ap
piobitionof its constituency in ex
tending all aid within its power to the
Upper Board in time of need; aud
ebould mid last named board find
tbt the repair work on the lovee iu
AuOitioniill sriou8ly embarre us ita
finances, aud desire aid from this
ilnard, any proportion to that end,
eppiopriaiely providing for repayment
ot any oat'ay by this board, will be
favorably coniidered an i, if poisible,
the aid extended.
