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
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.
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.
