THE ELDORADO A DESERT.
That 1st What Hcturiiiiit l»k« tans s«ay of the Canadian Northwest. The Dakota* not the Only States Afflicted With Recent Drouths. Some Dangers Which the Wheat Crop Has Vet to En counter. No Canada for These. The Alert has repeatedly warned the people of this vicinity against the insin uating wiles of the Canadian emigration agents who infest North Dakota and are endeavoring to organize colonies to go to the sterile wilds of ice-bound Alberta. About ten days ago a party of 12, who had been purauaded to leave Dakota, re turned and three of the party voluntarily sought the office of a notary public at Bathgate, North Dakota, and made state ments of what they found for the benefit of others, who like themselves may listen with credulous ears to the rosy tales of the northern boomers. They were prom ised a land of milk and honey. They found instead a barren waste of desert sand, either destitute of all vegetation or grown up to sage brusb and an inhos pitable climate, where vegetable growth is impossible. They report that all the deluded Dakotaus who can, will return and that many will walk across the boundary. Charles George of Bridgewater, Mc Cook county, South Dakota, says in his affidavit: At Yorktown there are fifteen families deluded as I had been who were un able to get work, were out of money and could not secure the assistance promised. What their fate may be, destitute and in a strange land, is a matier of conjecture, but it would look like starvation. I have no doubt that this is the cruel fate of a majority of those who left comfortable Dakota homes to follow the illusions pictured by Canada's immigration agents. Gotlieb Bow of Eureka, Mcintosh county, thanks his stars that he had money enough to get back to North Da kota, and Peter Housower of Ashley, Mc intosh county, relates the following ex perienoe: At Winnipeg, I was given a free ticket to Yorktown, from which place we went tj look at lands, which we found so poor as to be almost worthless. Not taking farms the agent refused to let us go back although our tickets read return. We were forced to walk back to Winnipeg, which took us a week. Some of those with ue who were unable to walk gave the conductor watches and other valu ables for transportation back. A large number of those desiring to return to the United States are now at Winnipeg and will probably walk to thisjside of the line, as they have no money to pay their way bv rail. Never saw a more disap pointed, heart broken looking people than these deceived emigrants from Da kota. Drouth Has Been General. A good many farmers in both Dakotas think tfaat the drouth of the last five years has been felt in this state and South Dakota only. A visit to any oneof the northwestern and western states will show that the drouth has existed over a very large portion of the north and west. In Minnesota where the number of lakes of freah water are yery numerous and in clude a large area of the state, the effects of the drouth are as plainly visible as in the Dakotas. Nearly all of the smaller lakeo and ponds in Minnesota have dried np entirely, and bodies of water where four or five years ago, there were caught abundance of fish, now only present clumps of dry grass. The supposed in fluence of woods and forests in inducing rainfall, has not brought any more mois ture for the Minnesota farmers than the prairies of North Dakota have for the dwellers here. It has been desperately dry and discouraging in Minnesota for all kinds of agricultural pursuits, only many farmers have been able to tide over the hnrd times, by chopping and selling cord wood, ties, &c. This occupa tion has brought in a certain amount of cash each year and has kept many famil ies in the state. The late rains there have been as abundant as here and residents are hopeful of a big crop the same as here. Wheat looks well in the northern part of that state, but is not any farther advanced than in the Jim river valley. Everybody knows how Iowa "and Kansas have suffered from drouth, as well as Nebraska, and how the cattle ranges of Montana have been nearly destroyed. So the North Dakota farmer who has stuck it out on his prairie farm can rest assured that he is as well off as many farmers of Minnesota and other old and populous states. Only the Dakota farmer has not been able to Btand the tug of ad versity as well as those in the other states. He has learned a lesson, however, that never will be forgotten and while the long dreary experiences of the past few years are now some what fresh in memory they will soon fade in the return of good seasons, and the farmer who has learned what he never knew before—how to economize—will be the better off for it all, and a stronger and more self-reliant man. Those big Prices for Land. The sale of state school lands that averaged 819 per acre is attracting wide attention abroad, and is one of the strongest facts that people here could have to show the value of their lands. Th"se are the first sales made, and they speak volumes for the future values of what is now a new and sparsely settled state. While these lands were in the Bed riyer valley and are known as wheat lands, v, yet the credit attaohes to the whole state as well. Beferring to this in a circular to eastern correspondents E. P. Wells says: These lands were sold at auotion and were purchased by tbe farmers living ad jacent thereto and the prices given are an evidence of the value that the neigh bors place upon them. It is not reason able to presume that these prices will be maintained in tbe more sparsely settled counties further west, but it is the opin ion of the writer that tne intrinsic value of the lands in the James river valley, will be proven to be equal to land in the Bed river valley—tbe latter locality hav ing, however, been first settled and de veloped, the farmers there had the ad vantage of several year's large crops and good priccs before tbe reaction and are today in better condition to pay actual values when buying. Two or three good crops in the James river valley would practically pay up the entire indebtedness of its farmers and place them in a position and with a dis position to buy more land and to pay for it the same prices that are being realized in the eastern counties. Crop Dangers yet to Face. Tbe Minneapolis Market Becord sensi bly remarks: The dangers that wheat crops in this country have yet to face are not light affairs. The promise to this time has been estimated by the growth of the plant and straw. A vigorous growth of straw is all right it not too rank, and if there is dry cool weather when the grain is filling. On the other hand it is liable to be laid by storms or to rust from moisture. Thin or light grain seldom rusts, while thick heavy grain seldom comes through without suffering more or less from the conse quences of rust. A growing crop is generally overrated with heavy straw, and as generally under rated with light straw. There is a possi bility that the wheat crop may go through the harvest with as bright re sults as estimated now but the chances are against it, with the probabilities strongly favoring serious damage. Ex perience teaches that a heavy, rank growth seldom produces full plump kernals of grain. Minnesota has oftener been damaged by rains than drouth. Dakota has seldom been too wet and has better prospects, judged by the past, than Minnesota, though rust did much harm there once, to the crop of 1888. It was promising at this season of a large yield but resulted in many parts in flat failure. Railroad Commissioners in Town. The railroad commissioners returned from the Montana line Saturday^and took dinner at the Gladstone. They report that a number of complaints are being received and that efforts to adjust those already made are meeting with good success. The utmost publicity has been given to the commissioners' trip and if anyone has any grievance and desires to state it personally, the opportunity is an excellent one. The party left for Leeds this afternoon and will return to James town for the night. From this point they go east and will make the towns along the Northern Pacific and Great Northern. All small stations are visited, and no point is ignored, says Commissioner Harmon. Commissioner Walsh reports that crops look immense everywhere they have been. The personnel of the party remains the same as published in The Alert Thurs day.* The ladies have gathered some specimens of geological interest and a native cactus or two. All seem to be en joying the trip, although Commissioner Harmon denounces the charge made in a Grand Forks paper that the party is on a junketing trip. Mr. Harmon says he has business at home that he would be glad to attend to instead of making this trip as they are compelled to do. Black Bass Fishing. Messrs. Wallace and Kellogg returned from Perham, Minn., yesterday, where they went black bass fishing. Tbe weather was cold and rainy and fish de clined to bite to any great extent, al though there is probably no place in the United States where bass are as plenti ful as in the lakes of that locality. The accommodations are good and prices reasonable. The Northern Pacific runs four trains a day through Perham and half rates are to be obtained from all stations. Bait and boats can be had at many points where fishing is good. There are within a radius of 15 miles of Perham at least 20 lakes where the heart of the fisherman can be contented with most any kind of thhmg. Bass, pick erel, pike, sun £sh, bull heads, all fairly swarm in the waters. The black bass are of course the favorites and appear to be the most numerous. Most of them caught are large and weigh between four and five pounds, and many over that. With the return of warm weather the sport will be simply all that could be wished. McCormick Harvesters. Kirk, Allen & Hathorn will sell the McCormick harvesting machines this year. They tell us that the McCormick company are obliged to make at the rate of one complete machine every minute of the day in order to supply their world wide demand—the McCormick being al most as well known on tbe steppes of Bus sia, the plains of the Danube and in the winter harvests'of the southern hemis phere—Australia, South Africa and South America—as it is here. The McCormick catalogue, which, by the way, they keep for gratuitous distri bution, it is a work of art and will repay careful reading, while the lithographic poster of the historic battle of the Moni tor and Merrimac is the finest thing we have ever seen published. When we take into consideration the fact that the McCormick company sold 105,468 ma chines in 1890 the popularity of their harvesters and mowers and the capacity of their mammoth works affords an inter esting subject for contemplation. Taken TTp. May 28th, one yearling mare colt, dun, had on leather halter 1 bay mare, about 4 years old, weight about 800 lbs. C. W. HENDRICKS, one mile south of Jamestown, N. D. NOT AS MUCH WHEAT SOWN An Estimate of Twenty PerCent Decrease Throughout the State. The Asylum Artesian Well Will be Suuk Deeper or anew one Bored. Kailroad Commissioners Start on Tlieir Annual Tour of Inspection. Decreased Acreage Reported. There is every reason to believe that while the crop prospect of North Da kota is at present better than it hast been for five years, the acreage throughout the state is considerably less than last year, and a great deal less than has been reported. Tbe reasons for such a con clusion are apparent to everybody, and the assessors returns will no doubt shortly determine it for a certainty. In the first place there is little or no new breaking, in any portion of the state. Outside of the Bed Biver valley there are many old stubble fields not sowed this year that show decreased acreage. Iu the Jim River valley counties the acre age is certainly much less, and on the Missouri slope, the wheat crop of tbe past few years has not been a large enough factor to figure in cn estimate. In the counties of Eddy, Foster, Wells and Benson, all leports agree in a de crease of from 30 to 40 per cent, owing to lack of seed. A state official who has recently made a trip through Kidder, Logan, Emmons, and Mcintosh counties says that the numerous old fields not turned over, and absence of new breaking show marked decrease in acreage. Further information obtained says the Bed Biver valley will also show a deficit of 5 to 10 per cent. In LaMoure county the same general conditions prevail, but no special infor mation beyond that has been obtained. It is known that in Dickey county the acreage is a good deal less owing to in ability to obtain seed, and discourage ment of farmers from unusual hard luck in crops. Charity has been required to keep many families there through the winter. Many western farmers have been obliged to part with horses and substitute oxen, and less ground of course can be cultivated with them. Besides many of the farmers have largely abandoned wheat growing in the western part of the 6tate. and taken to raising stock. In the counties west of the Jim river there is, however, double the acreage of corn, and much more variety of 6mall crops sowed. All of these crops look well and promise abundant yields this season. The acreage of the state is at least 20 per cent less than last year. If present prospects continue, however, the yield will to a great extent make up for this loss, but the statements of a large acreage increase are certainly wide of the mark. The Asylum Board Meeting. The regnlar meeting of the hospital trustees occurred Saturday. There were present Trustees Auld of Dickinson, Smith of Wheatland, and Lieber of Jamestown. Considerable routine busi ness was attended to. The governor spent a few hours with the board and also inspected the institution. It was decided to do something towards increas ing the water supply from the artesian well, which is said to be filling up at the bottom with fine sand, owing tbe failure of the previous contractors, the Gray Bros, of Milwaukee, to pipe the welljto the bottom. How much remains un protected by piping is not known. Sec retary Lieber was instructed to notify well contractors in the east to be present at the meeting July 2nd when a contract will be entered into for sinking the present well deeper or for boring anew one. It is not believed it will be neces sary to expend the entire amount of 875,000 for repairing the well. The board do not propose to let any con tractor get the "sinch" on them in this matter. The board renewed $55,000 of insurance on the buildings. Carried in local agencies. Tour of Inspection. The commissioners of railroads started on their annual tour of inspection Wed nesday, going from Fargo over the Fargo & Southwestern and coming up the valley to Jamestown. They went west last night and will work their way back, stopping at all stations, and reach James town Saturday. The trip will consume twenty days, eight of which will be spent in visiting points on the Northern Pacific road and branches nine on the Great Northern and three on other roads. They have been careful to give twenty days' notice of their coining, as required by law, so that grievances may be prepared in time at any point. The commissioners are traveling in a special sleeper and try ing to make their tedious journey as comfortable as possible. The party con sists of Commissioners Harmon, Slotten and Walsh, Mr. and Mrs. Burkholz, Mrs. Armstrong and Mrs. Walsh of Grand Forks, and Mr. and Mrs.Knight of Fargo. Commissioner Harmon told an Alert man that no complaints bad been made that people felt so good over the recent rains that they had forgotten how to kick. McKenzie Feels Good. "No, there is nothing new," said Alex ander McKenzie to a Pioneer Press re porter, "except that this is the best year for our country since 1881. The rains have soaked the ground, the streams are running nicely and the wells have plenty of water. At this seeding and cultivat ing season our people pay but little at tention to politics, so I cannot give you anything on that subject. You might state that there was a big sale of state school lands in the Bed river valley a few days ago, and that farms sold at 830 an acre, which is a good stiff price. s' "August Flower" How doea he feel ?—He feels cranky, and is constantly experi menting, dieting himself, adopting strange notions, and changing the cooking, the dishes, the hours, and manner of his eating—August Flower the Remedy.
