St. Paul Dispatch Comments on President
Hill's Irrigation Efforts.
If The St. Paul Dispatch canqot agre
with Mr. James J. Hill as to the public
tjenefit which will come from a sup
pression of competition among railways,
it can heartily agree with him in what
fie said to the farmers of North Da
kota at the irrigation convention last
week. In it he showed that consum
mate ability to gather details, marshal
them and mass them upon the desired
point, which he often displayed in mat
ters more peculiarly within the scope of
his vocation. He grasped not onlv the
local phases of the movement, but the
larger effects to follow. Not the least
interesting portion of his address was
his narrative of how he, with other rail
way presidents whose lines traverse the
affid and sub-arid regions, spent $25,000
SKyear for five years in educating pub
lic opinion to the importance of irri
gation and thus created a popular sen
timent that forced congress to i^ct. It
were belter for the country w&re all
"campaign funds" devoted to like laud
able ends.
Hill did not restrict himself to
presenting the need and advantage of
irrigation in regions where rainfall is

too light for crop cultivation. He went
into the subject as affecting localities
where the rainfall is regarded as suf
ficient, and showed how even there it
is rarely adequate to the fullest crop
production.' He quoted the experi
ments made by Dr. Ging, of the Wis
consin University, on the production of
water supply to dry pound products
needed to produce most from the soil
more water during the growing season
than is the entire annual rainfall of
Wisconsin. While those who, in a
small way, in garden plots, have learn
ed how much more productive land is
when copiously supplied with water,
even they will be surprised to be told
that dent corn requires 309 pounds of
water to each pound of dry product,
and barley needs 2,398 pounds. A sup
ply of water equivalent to the whole an
nual rainfall increased four times the
quantity of corn grown on like soil
under natural supply.
Irrigation thus presented becomes an
important question not only for the
arid and sub-arid portions of the coun
try, but for those where dependence
upon rain has become habitual, with
out supplementing it by artificial
means. A larger effect of this would
be such an increase in soil productivity
that, as in the desert regions where
water is applied, a less number of acres
will be required for sustenance, a larg
er population be made possible, and

The legislature did a mighty good
thing when it passed the pure' food

The importance of this part of the
problem cannot be estimated too highly.
If the law is not strictly enforced, it
will be of no benefit to the people ""Of

Other duties take tip their time. It
devolves bn the common citizen to

The country is looking to this state

Saprene Court Affirm* Decision the Lower
Court In the Qignltr COM.
After being in the courts shfce
tober, 1899, the case of N. D. Gagnief
vs. the City of Fargo, was finally set
tied yesterday by the supreme court of
the state affirming the decision of the
lower court, which awarded to the
plaintiff damages in the sum of $424.90.
The case was first tried in the district
court at the May term in 1900, and a
verdict ior $323.50 was awarded the
plaintiff. The case was then appealed
to the supreme court by the city and
the decision of the lower court was
reversed and the case remanded back
Tor trials A£ the* next fefm of district
court the case was again tried and a
vendict for the. plaintiff was returned in
the sum of $424.90. The city again ap
pealed to the supreme court, and the
lower court was again affirmed. A re
hearing before the supreme court was
then asked for and granted, and yes
terday the higher court handed down a
decision sustaining the lower court,
and the city will now be compelled to
pay the plaintiff $424.90 and all of the
tourt costs accrued since the com

Oct. 18, 1899, while riding along the
south side of Sixth Avenue North, N.
D. Gagnier ran into a hole in a dilapi
dated brick sidewalk and was thrown
violently into a pile of brick and stone.
His right side, right arm and back were
injured and for several months he was
confined in the hospital. He brought
suit against the city, claiming in his pe
tition that he had been permanently
injured, for the sum of $2,000 damages.
The plaintiff was represented by At
torney Pierce. City Attorney Hildreth
contended that there was a city ordi
nance prohibiting the riding of bicycles
on the sidewalks when the roads were
in a passable condition and that the
plaintiff had violated this ordinance
and branded this action as contributary
negligence. The courts, however, held
against him on this point. The judg

IA honey grower named Beals, in Iowa,

Bee raising is a very prosperous busi

without bees and beeswax. The proposi
tion is very much like a substitute for
rubber. There are three or four journals
devoted to bee culture, and they have a
standing offer of $1,000 to the person
who will produce artificial honey. One
or two ambitious persons have tried to
do so, but failed. In some cones the
center looks very dark, almost creating
suspicion on the part of the buyer, while
