If the more respectable saloon men
(and there's nobody so jealous of "good
name" as the average saloonist) were out
of it and the element of respectability
thus eliminated from the trade, then it
wou'd be easy to prohibit.
Thera is the position that North Da
kota has the liquor business to-day. No
respectable man will run a blind pig and
few men who want to be deemed respect
able will be seen in a blind pig.
Fortunately we were so. situated that
this could be done without the "deluge"
but in some states and some communi
ties, public sentiment can be aroused by
nothinK less than a flood. Break down
the dam of law and semi-respectability
and the deluge of damnation will certain
ly follow.
In talking drainage at the late conven
tion, there seemed to be some confusiou
as to causes and effects. There seemed
to be no especial distinction between the
draining of the prairies and the draining
of the rivers. There is considerable differ
ence between floods arising from the
overflow ot rivers and floods on the
prairies from a surplus of rain or melted
snow. It is true that they are, olten
simultaneous and caused by the same
general conditions, but not necessarily
so, and olten have no local connection
with each other. It is a well known fact
that the floods from the Red river are
mostly caused by surplus waters that
come from northern Minnesota, and
sometimes occur in a dry season as to
our own locality. This is to some ex
tent true of the branch rivers. The over
flows in the Tongue and Pembina rivers
of two years ago were mostly caused by
water that came from the Pembina
mountains and beyond.
Really the problems, of drainage in
this valley are two. if not three. First,
to get the witer from the flat prairies
to the rivers. Second, to get the rivers
to carry ofl the waters, and the latter
may be subdivided by the distinction be
tween causes and effects of floods in the
Red river and the overflows of. the
branch rivers.
In applying remedies, these distinc
tions should be kept in mind. In some
cases the remedies will |likely apply
for the benefit of all, in others just
the opposite. For instance, generally
speaking the more rapidly we conduct
the water from the prairie to the river,
the more likely the river is to overflow,
while a cut-off drain might not only help
drain the prairie but also serve as an ad
ditional channel for the river.
broadly speaking the matter ol drain
age and the floods of the Red river, as
yet, haye little or nothing to do with
ea other. As yetthe drainage of the
prairies has not produced the floods any
mole frequently than before the prairies
were drained, though the opposite is
true as to the branches, but, of course,
in time the main river will be influenced
by the new conditions:
Senator Hansbrough has introduced a
bill appropriating 91,000,000 from the
fund created by the sale of "government
lands in this state for draining the Da
kota side oftheRed river valley, 'litis
isthemewurethat ishould have been a
part of the rrrigation t^ill that was intra
dnced by Senaitor Hansbrough and pass
ed by congress'some yean ago. We
think that: the present bill Would-have
more chanefc o! passing if' the other side
of the river wera jncloded and the Afin
nesota delegation also made interested
in its successful passage. It wil)be a
in Mr. Hansbrougp's dip,
however, if he can g^tthis bill/tnrough.
