PROTECTION FOR THE VALLEY. Every spring there is great danger, especially if much snow has fallen dur ing the preceding winter, of the Red river overflowing its banks and thus ruining thousands of farmers living along its course. It is now proposed to construct dams along the tributaries of the Red in Minnesota, and thus form two immense reservoirs, one at Red Lake and the other at Lake Traverse in Minnesota. The water in these res ervoirs will be let on as needed for navigation, and instead of the usual floods and destruction the river will be navigable the whole summer through, for about 700 miles. For this purpose an immense gathering oif delegates, from all over the Red river valley'will meet at Grand Forks on May 10th, to discuss the project, and also to ask congress for an appropriation. The total cost is placed at $8150,000, and the damage done by floods in one year alone, 1SS)7, was estimated at $3.O00, 000.
