Ter., June 2005 Editor Times. Tear Sir: 1 see by the Bates coun ty papers that there is still some op position to the river and drainage proposition now before the county court. As I am interested to the extent of one hundred acres in the Marias Dee Cygnes river bottom, I would like to express my opinion. I am more than willing to pay my part of the drain age tax, let it be what it will. I would rather have fifty acres well drained than one hundred acres in the condi tion it now Is. I am confident that with a competent drainage board to oversee the . work and the county court to watch them that we will get a squara deal, so far as cost is con cerned. Last week I bad a letter from a real estate man In Butler, stating that he thought he could sell a large tract of that land, It be could get an option on It, and that he would take ten dollars per acre lor his overflow land. Now that don't sound good to me. Is it possible that the best land In Bates county is only worth ten dollars per acre and no effort to be made to make it worth mora? The party writing to the Bates County Democrat from Midland, Texas, seemed to think that the farm er with a mortgage on his laud would be hard pressed to pay both Interest and tax. I think different, as It Is now they never get 'more than three crops out ot fire off of that land (and usually have to plant them over sev eral times on account of high water.) Now the land owners are surely not satisfied with those conditions. If on the other hand water can be kept off of that land, so that it can be culti vated every year, they can pay not only the interest and tax, but will soon be able to pay off the mort gage. Now Jf the county court takes into consideration the welfare ot all concerned, they will certainly do something to reclaim this land. Yours Truly, E. I. Wili.ia.mh, Father and Baby, Victims Of Pistol Duel, Buried. Paducah, Ky., June 20.-The bod ies of J. Q. Walters and his baby were buried to-day In the same grave at Ripley, Tenn. His wife is in a pit carious condition. The body ot con ductor J. W. Spink will be burled at Fulton, Ky. The men fought a pistol duel at Fulton, Ky., In a room where their wives were ill, and after empty ing their pistols both men fell dead The baby died a few minutes later from the shock. The men were broth er id-laws and quarreled ' over one's cow getting Into a garden. A Misapprehension Corrected. It has been said that many owners of Osage and Marias dee Cygnes River bottom land In Bates county have the Idea that if the pending drainage plans in Bates county are consum mated, and bonds Issued tor the pay ment of the work, it may even then turn out that a further Issue of bonds or further assessment will have to be made to complete the work; or, In other words, that there Is no assur ance that the first assessment, and bonds issued In pursuance of that, will complete the work as proposed. Such an idea cannot be entertained by one who Is familiar with the pro visions ot the present drainage stat ute ot this state. This affords ample protection against any such suppos ed unfortunate contingency. In the first place it should be re membered the engineer Is required to make an estimate of the costs ot the entire work. This must be approved by the County Court before the con tract tor construction can be made. The law expressly provjdes that no contract for construction shall be let to an amount in excess of the engi neer's estimate of cost. The law Is to be let to the lowest bidder, and, as stated, these bids must come within the estimated amount. In addition to that, the contractors are required to give bond with good and solvent sureties in amount equal to twenty per cent ot the cost of construction, conditioned that the contractor shall complete the work as required. In addition to that no contractor can get his pay except through the orders of the County Court, and drawn from the county treasury as the work is com pleted by sections. Thob J. Smith.
