Not proper Charge.
"Much of the service rendered by
Tall was in trips to Keokuk, confer
ring with creditors and attorneys In
an effort to induce them to Join in the
petition. I do not consider such serv
ice in itself a proper charge. In this
case the claims for attorney's fees
exceed several times the amount of
claim held by his clients. The solici
tation of other creditors to Join in th3
petition is not necessarily the work ot
an attorney, it is work any business
man can do."
The court holds that the attorney
shall be called In to give advice and
to prepare petitions, but that merely
coming back and forth to induce oth
ers to Join is not a proper service for
which an attorney may charge.

TO RECLAIM ACRES
Edmund T. Perkins In Letter to the
Board of Supervisors, Says 14,
344 Aoree Could be Added
to Lee County.
THE COST TO BE $348,000
Pumping Station Would Coet $47,000
—Full Report Will be Given to
Board Next Monday,
According to a report sent the board
of supervisors, Edmund T. Perkins ot
Chicago, engineer In charge of the
drainage district project for Green
Bay district, figures that 14,344 acres
can be added to the area of Lee coun
ty. The following letter waq sent to
the board yesterday:
Sirs: If It Is entirely agreeable to
you, I plan to return my report on the
Green Bay levoe and drainage district
to Mr. A. P. Meyer, county auditor,
on Monday, August 2, 1915, when 1
understand you are to have & meeting
of the board.
In the meantime, with your permis
sion, I will discuss the plans for the
reclamation of this district, the neces
sities for such reclamation, and the
costs, with the various land owners
Interested, that I may, if possible,
make plain to them that this work 13
for the benefit of all.
Tou will probably be Interested In
knowing that I recommend—
First: The establishment of the
levee and drainage district, which
will benefit 14,344 acres. The cost of
the levees, ditches and drains are es
timated at $348,000, with an annual
cost of maintenance of $4,108.62.
Second: The establishment and
maintenance of a pumping station
which will benefit 12,203 acres. The
cost of the pumping station being
$4 ,000 with an annual pumping
cost of $10,7'10.
Believing that It will be of Interest
to you, the land owners of the Green
Bay district and the people of Lee
county to know some of the facts
which lead to these recommendations
take the liberty of forestalling my
formal report by this letter.
Contractors Will Bid.
My estimate of coBt will be guaran
teed by accompanying letters of re
sponsible contractors, offering to con
struct the various units at prices less
than those estimated by me.
If this district is not constructed,
some eight or nine thousand acres of
farming lan^ will become lake bot
toms or low, swampy lands lncapabic
of cultivation. Ill feeling and ill
health will result, and damage suits
will be brought by neighbor against
The rivers and lakes commission of
Illinois has just had an investigation of
the drainage districts along the Illi
nois river. One hundred and seventy
two thousand acres have been reclaim
ed at an average cost of a little over
thirty dollars per acre. The value of
these lands has increased from some
thing less than thirty dollars an acre
to over one hundred and twelve dol
lars. Each year's crops more than
equal In value the total cost of recla
We can reasonably expect similar
results from the reclamation of the
Green Bay lands, so that Instead of
having the lake and swampy lands we
will have nine or ton thousand acre3
of land worth from one million to a
million and a half dollars, producing
annual crops worth at least a quarter
of a million dollars.

How highly would the citlzcns ol

How much more highly should they
commend you when you transform a
loss Into a profit of this character and
tremendously benefit the public health
an«i forever prevent such conditions is
now exist In Green Bay.
And especially I desire to call your
attention to the distribution of the
costs of construction. The lands of a
drainage district are taxed according
to the benefits received, and It is my
opinion, founded upon careful investi
gation and many years of experience,
that the nine thousand acres of lan 1
(approximately) now owned by tho
Mississippi River Power company will
'carry at least eighty per cent of tho
costs of the levees, ditches and drains,
in round figures $280,000, leaving a'.l
other lands, about five thousand acres,
to pay only $68,00'0.
The same proportion of costs hold?

the solitude of the desert and the

tho companionship of men. Brant re
