Ho Is IprogrcsBlvo In his ideas, courteous and accommodating, ana won acsorv ing of tho liberal patronage that Is Advocates of tho drainage district who are conducting a campaign of education on tho subject, held a meet ing at the Farmers' Exchango InBt evening. Nearly ono hundred wcro present, and with the exception of a half dozen they wcro owners of tho land within ithe proposed district. Practically all thoso who attended tho opposition meeting in tho afternoon ore present at the evening meeting. Chas. Lawrence presided as chair man and tho early part of tho evening was devoted to remarks by J. G. Beel er on tho legal phases of tho drainage proposition and answering questions fired at him by tho opposition. Engineer Jessup was Introduced by tho chairman and for about an hour poke on drainage under tho heads of its need, tho results, the benefits that would accrue from thorough drain ago in, tho proposed district, and tho cost of tho ditch. , Mr. Jessup made It clear that he had no personal interest in tho proposed ditch. Ho Is an employo of tho gov ernment and at tho solicitation of men Interested ho had been sent hero to Investigate conditions and If a ditch was feasible to mako an estimate of tho approximate cost. Ho found that three-fourths of tho land was practic ally non-productivo by icason of be ing water soaked, that it was possible to construct a ditch at what ho con sidered a reasonable tax per acre, and that as to the benefits derived there was no question in his mind. Ho gave instances where land had been re claimed through drainage and said that sooner or later all Irrigated land must be drained. He said in Colorado alone 1,000,000 acres of land once un der irrigation had become practically non-productive and tho only method of again making it productive waa ,by drainage. Ho pointed but that: thous ands of acres of land in the valley now renting for not moro more than a dollar per acre, would if properly drained rent for six or eight dollars per acre. This being true, he sub mitted to his hearers if it was not a good business proposition td Invest1 thirteen dollars per acre in having it drained. If land now in wild hay bringing a revenue of one dollar per acre, would produce aTevenuo of twenty dollars from sugar tyeets. after drainage, certainly the drainage1 cost would prove a wise investment. Following his talk Mr. Jessup ans wered many questions that wore asked him, some of which were portlnGnt while others were scarcely worthy of consideration, yet ho freely and fully answered all.
