THE STATE SANATORIUM.
The project for a state sanatorium
for the treatment of tuberculosis to
be erected in northern Minnesota
has been sleeping but it is far from
being dead, and despite the heavy
demands that are being made upon
the state treasury this winter, it is
rium will pass, and tha,t_\voivlt_will
be"begun this summer.
The project is not a new one. All
-the general features of it have been
under consideration for several
years and the necessity for such an
institution has been pretty conclu
The report of the commission ap
pointed by the legislature to inves
tigate^ the] [.project makes it very
plain"that the sanatorium is a neces
sity. Similar institutions in othe'
states have accomplished great re
sults and the climate of northern
Minnesota is thought! to be partic
ularly suited to the favorable treat
ment of tuberculosis, wherefore it is
expected that the establishment of
the sanatorium will within a few
years teach the people "of the state
to so live that consumption shall be
come as rare as it is now common.
Under the terms of the bill all pa
tients deceived in the sanatorium
must pay their own expenses if able
to do so, other wire the cost will fall
upon the counties from which they
come. The state will bear the cost
of administration only.Crookston
Dr. G. S. Wattam, of this city, is a
member af the commission appointed
"bytthe"governor to look into the fea
sibility of establishing a sanatorium
and he has taken a special interest
in this matter. I certainly is a
project worthy of the serious con
sideration of our lawmakers, now as
sembled in St. Paul. On no grounds,
except financial, can there be any
opposition to establishing an insti
tution of this kind. A rich state
like Minnesota, where more than a
thousand deaths from consumption
occur annually, can well afford to
do everything that car
ward off the dreaded disease. Bet
ter economize in other matters, The
present legislature hasj been very
lavish with the people's money, and
especially does the appropriation^
millions of dollars for the interior
decorations of the state capitol,
seem the height of extravagance.
A few frescoes less on the capitol
walls and a few thousand dollars in
stead devoted to this humanitarian
project, would be a wiser expendi
ture of public money. Let the san
atorium be established.
A BILL has-been introduced in the
to authorize the invest-
ment of $600,000 of the state school
fund in ditching bonds drawing six
percent interest. Not only would
this furnish a safe investment for
that fund, but be the means also of
developing the state4 The bill ought

CRUCIAL TEST OF LEVEES.
Higher Water Certain Along: Mia
alggiliui and Levee* May Not
Memphis, Tenn., March 17.The
crucial test of the great levees along
the Mississippi is at hand and if they
withstand the pressure of the immense
volume of water now rushing south
vvard, the most sanguine predictions
of the government engineers will be
fully verified. The river gauge Monday
morning marked 39.1, a rise of six
tenths since 7 o'clock Sunday even
ing. This is the highest stage of the
water ever known here, and the weath
er bureau officials predict 40 feet be
fore the crest of the flood passes. The
high waterma rk in the great flood of
1S97 was 37.3.
In North Memphis the situation is
assuming a serious phase. Hundreds
of people are abandoning their homes
and every industry located along Wolf
river has closed down. Street car serv
ice in this part of the city has been
practically abandoned and skiffs are
being brought into requisition.
